ROADSHOWS are being held for dog owners to promote responsible ownership.
Chesterfield Council has organised the Taking the Lead events, the first of which has been held at Staveley Market.
Further events are now being planned: on Sunday, at Eastwood Park Gala; Tuesday, June 12, at Stand Road Park; Tuesday, July 3, at Grangewood Road and Birchwood Crescent; Saturday, July 7, at the Armed Forces Day event at Poolsbrook Park; and Sunday, July 8, at the Inkermann Buzz, Ashgate Road.
Council officers will be on hand at each roadshow to give advice about barking, hand out free pooper-scoopers and carry out micro-chipping, as well as talking to residents about a variety of environmental issues.
The events, which have won an award from the RSPCA, are now in their fourth year.
