News June 2019


Gildersome Parish Council are pleased to hear news from our neighbours in Drighlington that a dog

fouler who failed to pick up his dogs mess off Drighlington Moor has been prosecuted successfully

and fined over £700. Martin Sumpton of Gainsborough pleaded quilty to the offence at a court

hearing yesterday.


This prosecution was undertaken by the Enforcement Officer employed by Morley Town Council

and Drighlington and Gildersome Parish Councils.


We hope this news sends out the message to others that we will not tolerate dog foulers and will

impose penalty notices and fines on those who undertake this anti social behaviour.
