Children who play in a community park in Bath are appealing to local people to clean up after their dogs so they can enjoy their green space. Aliena, Freya and Miles, who all live near The Oval Community Green in Bath, have designed signs that Curo have put up around the park.
The children's signs were the winning designs in a competition organised by Oval Community Group who have worked with Curo to transform the open space that overlooks the city.
Curo's Curo Head of Estates Services, Carl McMurtry, said: “It’s always a pleasure seeing communities pulling together to tackle anti-social behaviour and the Oval Community Group are a great example of this, creating a great space for all to enjoy.
"It’s disheartening that a small minority of people think it’s OK to leave their dogs’ mess in these open spaces, however the young people across our city are now saying enough is enough. These signs look great and we would encourage more initiatives such as this! Well done and thank you.”
Oval Community Group founder Hannah Cameron McKenna said: "We’ve already had some really positive feedback about the posters, which is brilliant. Thanks for all your continued support."
Here are Aliena, Freya and Miles with their designs:
