Lincolnshire village crowdfunds for dog exercise paddock

A new dog play and exercise paddock is set to open in Tydd St Mary, Lincolnshire, after successfully securing £5,5000 in funding as part of the South & East Lincolnshire Crowd scheme.

The facility at Tydd St Mary will feature poo bag dispensers, poo bins, and benches for dog walkers to sit on.

In addition, a sandpit, play equipment, and agility equipment will be added to the paddock in the near future.

Councillor Tracey Carter, Deputy Leader and Portfolio Holder for Communities and Operational Housing, said: “Initiatives like this one have great benefits to local residents, creating a new, dedicated community space and excellent facilities for dog owners, bringing people together with a shared love.”

A statement by the Tydd St Mary Playing Field Committee added: “We were really pleased to get the contribution of £2,000 for our project from South Holland District Council, Crowdfunding pot, we were also successful in receiving £2,000 from Sutton Bridge Power Fund and of course the money we raised from the wider crowd.

“We would encourage groups who are trying to fundraise to give it a go.”
