Students in Bewdley have put their creative talents to work to support a new campaign to clamp down on dog fouling in the town.
Wyre Forest District Council and Bewdley Town Council asked students at St Anne’s C of E Primary to design some signs to display around the town appealing to dog owners to clear up after their pets.
Students submitted their designs as part of a poster competition and all winners and runners up will now see their designs turned into signs and erected around the town.
The Mayor of Bewdley John Beeson joined Wyre Forest District Council’s Senior Community and Environmental Protection Officer Mark Smith (pictured) to announce the winners at a special school assembly.
Wyre Forest District Council’s cabinet member for Operational Services Councillor Rebecca Vale said: “I’d like to pass on my congratulations to the winners, and the runners up and thank every child who took part in the competition.
“I think it’s a wonderful idea to get young people involved in taking pride in their home town. Bewdley is a beautiful town and we all have our part to play in keeping it looking good.”
