School dog fouling campaign posters to be put up in Whittlesey

Have your say

Eye-catching posters designed by children at Alderman Jacobs Primary School are to be displayed around Whittlesey to help Fenland District Council’s campaign to combat dog fouling.

The winners from Years 1-2 were Adam Simpson and Harriet Neal and from Years 3-6 it was Sophie Lawrence and Ben Peters.

They were presented with prizes by Councillor Peter Murphy, cabinet member for the environment, and council Street Scene officer Sally Mitchell.

The idea for the competition came from Sally after receiving a complaint from a parent about dog mess on the school run.

The four winners each received a free family swim pass at the council’s Manor Leisure Centre and 25 per cent off the cost of a birthday party there.

Cllr Murphy said: “These posters are terrific. They show this is a problem they really care about that affects the whole community. I’m sure they’ll make a real impact.”
