Please help improve our pitches and keep everyone safe by contacting the Council ...
Thanks to the efforts of one of our ACO Mums we have a new contact at the Council who has pledged to focus the efforts of Wardens and Park Rangers on Colinton Mains Park to combat the dog fouling problem. Please continue to be vigilant and immediately report your concerns by phone or email to the Council:-
Parks & Greenspace Officer
City of Edinburgh Council

In common with many pitches up and down the country Colinton Mains Park is often plagued by dog fouling.
We are determined to stamp this out and our Committee often contact the Councils' Environmental Wardens with a view to increasing patrols to catch the owners who are responsible for this anti-social, offensive and potentially harmful conduct ... but we need your help!
The Council has advised that their Environmental Wardens operate a complaints based Tracking System. This means that the more complaints they receive on a regular basis about a specific problem, the more attention it's given. If few complaints are made then there's the possibility the issue will drop off their radar.
Can we therefore ask all users of the pitches at Colinton Mains, be it a parent, player, coach or spectator, to contact the Council on every occasion they come across dog fouling on the pitches and surrounding areas. It would also help if you mention that your concern relates to footballing activities.
With the help of the Council we can all work together to catch the culprits and make our home ground a safer and more pleasant place for everyone concerned.
