Dog Mess CampaignA local Wyre Forest school has been helping Wyre Forest District Council tackle dog mess in the area.

Students from Upper Arley Primary School have taken part in a competition organised by the Council's Enforcement Officers.

Mya Evans, aged 8 and Sofia Evans, aged 6 won the competition and their posters have been made into a sign which will be displayed in the local area encouraging dog walkers to pick up their dogs' mess.

Prizes have been given to the winners and runners up thanks to Upper Arley Parish Council.

Councillor Ian Hardiman, Wyre Forest District Council's Cabinet Member for Operational Services said:

"It is fantastic to see local schools getting involved to help us tackle dog fouling. We've received some really positive comments following the installation of Amber's sign on Burlish Top and hope this sign will be as successful.

"We recognise that dog mess in our nature reserves isn't pleasant which is why we are working with local schools to educate and prevent it happening."

Anyone who witnesses dog fouling should report it to the Council as soon as possible. You can do this online by visiting or by calling 01562 732528.
