Glynneath Rugby Club
The consultation was initiated by Simon Knoyle QS SAK Ltd who is also Secretary of the rugby club and a respected local Councillor.
Simon met with Hywel Davies and explained the issue of dogs accessing the club area and fouling on the pitch.
An article published by the BBC stated that; as well as being filthy, dog mess is also unhygienic and a health hazard. The danger caused by dog mess is greatly increased because dogs are most likely to be walked and therefore to also foul in areas where the general public, and in particular children, walk and play, such as in parks, on pavements and roadways, on footpaths, playing fields, on beaches and in town and city centres. Dog mess can lead to Parvo, which is a potentially fatal disease which is transferred between dogs, but the key health issue with dog faeces is that it can lead to toxocariasis in humans.
Glynneath RFC are a Welsh Division 1 team with an excellent junior rugby set up with ages starting at under 6 up to youth.
Unless this issue was addressed explained Simon games simply could not go ahead.
Our meeting and survey discovered that dogs could access on two out of the four sides of the pitch. The far side of the pitch is a lane that runs behind houses meaning dogs can easily be let out of a rear garden and straight onto the pitch.
Our solution for this was to supply and install a continuous elevation of 170 linear metres of 1.8m high V-Mesh fencing to prevent any unauthorised access to the general public and, also to prevent dogs from entering the area.
We also supplied and installed a single leaf gate to match the fencing so that stewards can retrieve stray balls on match days.
The club side of the pitch was also totally open meaning easy access for dogs entering the pitch area. Our solution for this was to supply and install our Pedestrian Spectator Rail which is a great system, it has a continuous top tubular rail for spectators to comfortably lean on whilst watching a game.
The bottom of the system has a robust 868 Duo mesh which is fixed to the posts using security fixings, this will prevent dogs and toddlers entering the pitch.
Secretary, Simon Knoyle said ‘we are thrilled with the professionalism of Perimeter Fencing Solutions and the high standard of work that they have undertaken. We did add variations throughout the works including a timber refuse area so that our waste and recycling are not seen by members of the public, and some timber knee rail to prevent vehicles coming in contact with supporters.’
‘Perimeter Fencing Solutions are thankful for the opportunity to work with Glynneath RFC and the response from supporters has been amazing! We have also agreed to sponsor the rugby club for some key matches during the coming season’ said Hywel Davies.
