A pub landlady sick of doggers littering her car park with dirty underwear has started posting her finds on social media in a bid to shame those who left them behind. Louise Fenlon who runs The Three Arrows Inn in Heywood, Rochdale, Greater Manchester, says every morning she has do to a lap of the 50-space car park to clear up from people’s mischievous antics the night before. She said: “Condoms, underwear, baby wipes. It’s disgusting, but we’re a family pub and I have two young children so it has to be cleaned up.”
The 36-year-old, who took over running the pub 12 months ago, says dogging has been an issue at the site for years and nothing they do to deter it happening seems to work.
Two nights in a row now Louise was forced to retrieve abandoned underwear and decided enough was enough.
She posted a photo on Facebook of a pair of XXXL underpants which had been left outside the pub’s front entrance.
It read: “DOGGERS!!! Please be aware my CCTV reaches all of my carpark!!
“It’s bad enough I have to endure the footage. But please do not leave your dirty underpants size XXXL on my grounds!! It no fun picking them up in the morning. But will be very funny posting the footage on Facebook xxx love Louise the landlady xx.”
Louise said: “The Three Arrows Inn is a lovely little pub, and what’s more we’re a family pub. These people need to stop doing what they’re doing and have some respect.”
She added: “It’s happening pretty much every night, regardless of what day it is.
“We’ve got flood lights, loads of CCTV, we even cut the hedges but nothing seems to put them off.
We’re a food pub so we tend to close earlier, and we’re in a rural area with no neighbours so it seems we’re in a prime spot!”
Louise has even driven up to suspect cars herself to confront the passengers.
“One time I was going to pick my children up from school, it was 3.20pm, broad daylight, and there was a couple there. I knocked on the window and they just looked at me. Later that night they even came in for a meal!”
