Snettisham pupils spread anti-mess message with posters
Pupils at a West Norfolk village school were awarded prizes after they designed an eye-catching poster to help encourage villagers to pick up after their dogs.
The signs, which have been designed by youngsters from Snettisham Village School, will be displayed around the village, on dog bins at at the Common.
One of the judges, parish councillor Janet Todd, said: “We very much enjoyed seeing the children’s work, and they were really engaged with the idea.
“We hope that their work draws attention to the problem, which is a perennial issue for all parish councils.
“It is so good that youngsters are committed to this, as we know it bodes well for the future. Children are also great influencers of their parents.”
Prizes were awarded by the parish council and the winners were Emily Dry in first place, Jessica Moore in second place, and Grace Arndt-Poole in third place.
Parish council chairman Alf Todd believed having the visual impact of the children’s designs would make a difference.
He urged all dog-owners to behave responsibly, and drew attention to the reporting system operated by the borough council.
