Cattle worrying on Wellow Common

We have been made aware of several instances of dogs worrying cattle that lay up on Wellow Common between the main car park at Plantation Road and Monkeys Jump.

The cows are in calf or are calving right now and instead of returning to the farm they tend to stay out whilst the calves are very young.

There were a couple of instances in April of dogs worrying the cattle and more recently yesterday afternoon.

This appeared to be a commercial dog walker who had 6 dogs with her.

Please can we remind all dog walkers that dogs must be kept on a lead and under close control (particularly during this period) on Wellow Common throughout March to end of July as this is Ground Nesting Birds season.

Volunteer Driver Recruitment

Hampshire County Council is currently recruiting Volunteer Drivers to undertake various social care journeys within Hampshire.

Volunteers use their own vehicles to transport adults and children who are under the care of the County Council.

The scheme provides an essential transport link to facilities and activities for Hampshire residents, some of whom have physical or learning disabilities.

  • Don’t advertise any absences from home (e.g. holidays) on social networking sites
