Would this work in Haddenham?

According to The Times newspaper today, Dog walkers who fail to carry two plastic bags for collecting their pet's mess face £80 fines under a council plan to reduce fouling of parks and pavements.

Canterbury city council enforcement officers will approach walkers and ask them to show how many bags they are carrying. Those who produce none or only one could be fined unless they give a reasonable excuse, such as having already used their bags.

The Kent council will introduce the fixed penalties next month after admitting that existing fines for failing to clear up after a dog were not working because of the difficulty of catching offenders. The authority has not ticketed anyone since 2014-15, when only one owner was given a £70 penalty.
