Please Shut The Footpath Gate Behind You!

There has been a recent incident where a footpath gate has been left open and cattle have strayed into a private garden, causing damage.   Would you please be careful about shutting gates as otherwise you may find livestock roaming around your garden! There is also a serious risk of a road accident and injury if cattle are loose on the road. The only exception to this is if it is obvious the landowner wishes cattle to range between two fields. Please ALWAYS shut gates leading to the Highway.
