  1. My first reaction on seeing the notice in Morden Park from the Friends was surely the Council have more important tjhings to do in the present pandemic situation than inflicting rules on us poor dog owners. We are very lucky in Merton with all the lovely open spaces we have always but especially in the present situation. Most dog owners have control of their dogs, pick up mess etc. I believe a dog needs to be able to run free – with of course a certain amount of control. To keep them on a lead all the time more often than not will make them more aggressive. But you will find very few aggressive dogs. I could say a great deal more but maybe i will stop here.
