Save Daisy Hill Dog Walking Field

The people of Silsden had a lovely green space in the village for walking dogs, a piece of common land if you will. Ironically this land was just off the street called Daisy Hill, and was adored as a quiet place to play frisbee with the little Daisy mutt. We have had some  great times in that field chasing frisbee’s and sticks.

But this land has now been put into use for a field for cattle. And so, an area of recreation for man and their dogs has gone to pot, been fenced off probably never to be used again.

This field must be registered as a village green. Hopefully the evidence for this field being used for recreational use for 20 years can be found in time.


Love from a very disgruntled Maddie and a worried Daisy x

    There is a group of folks in the village who are collecting evidence to show the field has been usedforrecreation for 20 years so wecan have it declared as common land.

    I hope it does get common land status as it is the lonly place I feel safe taking Daisy to.
