Wyre Forest District Council and Heronswood Primary School pupils have worked together to solve a very messy problem!

Residents of the Spennells Estate in Kidderminster have been concerned about the growing number of irresponsible dog owners who were not cleaning up after their dog had fouled.   

Helen Dyke, local councillor for Spennells and Aggborough stated, “I received many complaints from local people who were fed up with the amount of fouling left around Spennells, especially around and in front of Heronswood Primary School and Pre-School, where lots of children and adults have to walk on a daily basis.”

Councillor Helen Dyke worked in collaboration with the amazing children at Heronswood Primary School to run a competition to encourage dog owners to be responsible and clean up after their dogs.

“The children learnt all about the dangers of not cleaning up after the dogs and they knew first-hand what a nuisance it could be. With this knowledge, pupils designed some wonderful, eye-catching posters to highlight this problem.” said Mrs Mikolajczyk, PSHE lead. These fantastic posters were judged and winning entries have been made into metal signs and put up around the foul hot-spot areas around Spennells Estate including the Nature Reserve and Bridle Paths.
