Many chickens are being allowed to roam freely on a recreational area (football pitch and play area), which is fouling and contaminating the area with chicken faeces. Children coming home covered in chicken muck! This is private land, and this matter has already been reported to the parish council and district council (owner of land). The chickens are deliberately being let out of the allotment highlighted in the first picture through a gap in the perimeter fence on the side of the adjoining field to the left, which can be opened and closed as required.
