    Reporter, BBC Radio Nottingham

    This is what Gedling Borough Council has had to say about the cafe plans...

    Quote Message: It is, at this time, too early to a reach a decision on this. Our plan is to have the visitors’ centre open next spring, and we will be discussing exactly how the café will operate in due course with our commercial operator. We will certainly be allowing guide dogs and their owners to fully use the facilities but the question about general access to dogs with their owners is still to be discussed." from Cllr John Clarke Leader of the council

    Pip Watts

    Reporter, BBC Radio Nottingham

    Dog owners want the new café at Gedling Country Park to be pet-friendly. 

    The visitor centre's set to open next spring but the Borough Council says no decisions have been made on whether dogs - other than guide dogs - would be allowed. 

    Russel and Cdy

    Dog walkers at the park this morning weren't impressed.

    "I wouldn't go in a place where I couldn't take them I just wouldn't go in there even if I was on my own - it's a dog-walking area," said dog walker Russell, who was there with his dog Cody.

  6. Dog poo or slurry? Smell gets you talking


    Over on Facebook, Tina Elizabeth Smith wrote: "Smells more like dog poo than normal muck spreading"

    Alan Cassady-Bishop commented: "It's all over the countryside, it's called slurry being spread over fields. Normally we wouldn't smell it but with this hot weather and all ..."


    Andy Burton has an alternative theory: "It's coming from Derby"...

    Anyone else noticed that awful smell in Nottingham?
