After receiving a number of reports of dog fouling around Bramley Sunnyside and Flanderwell schools, councillors and the Neighbourhoods team from Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council reached out to seek help from local school children.
In a joint effort to tackle dog fouling and reach out to dog owners, they teamed up with the affected schools and ran a poster competition with the children.
There was a brilliant response, with well over 200 entries. Councillors Sue Ellis, Emma Hoddinott and Chris Read certainly had a difficult job selecting the winning designs!
The winner and runner-up in each school were presented with a book voucher and the winning designs are currently being made into composite signs that will be installed around the schools and nearby paths and pavements.
The winners and runners-up were:
- Olivia and Millie from Bramley Sunnyside Junior School
- Antonia and Roman from Bramley Sunnyside Infant School
- Scarlett, Robyn, Kladija and Aleeza from Flanderwell Primary School
