THE HERD OF CATTLE THAT GRAZE THE RIVER MEADOW THROUGH THE SUMMER ARE DUE TO START ARRIVING FROM THE EVENING OF MAY 2ND.
EVENTUALLY THERE WILL BE A TOTAL OF 21 OF THEM AND DEPENDING ON THE AMOUNT OF AVAILABLE GRASS, THEY WILL BE ON SITE UNTIL THE END OF NOVEMBER.
PLEASE KEEP DOGS AWAY FROM THEM, ESPECIALLY DURING THE FIRST MONTH WHILE THEY ARE GETTING USED TO THEIR NEW SURROUNDINGS.
IT IS ESSENTIAL THAT THE PASTURE IS KEPT CLEAR OF DOG FAECES AND LITTER OF ANY KIND.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION.
