Marlow Mayor, Cllr Richard Scott has asked residents to clean up after themselves to look after the wildlife and environment

He said: “We’ve received a number of calls and emails regarding dog waste, litter -especially takeaway cups, dogs being out of control, and walkers not sticking to marked footpaths.

“It’s more important than ever that we look after our common spaces and protect wildlife and the environment, so we’re calling on everyone to abide by the Countryside Code.

“That means being considerate to others, taking away your litter, and cleaning up after your dog.”
