A pupil at St Margaret’s Primary School in Stoke Golding has won a competition to design an anti dog fouling poster.
Amicia Nelson’s design was adjudged to be the winner by the Borough Council’s Dog Warden, Anne McDonald, and the Clean Neighbourhoods team, who have now arranged to have it made into a poster that will be displayed in the village.
A number of schools in the Hinckley area took part in the competition and the quality of the designs from the children was very high, making it difficult to choose the winner.
The runners-up were Joshua and Tarni-Mae from Battling Brook and their design will also be made into a poster, which will be erected in the vicinity of the school.
Highly commended were the Dorothy Goodman and St Peters Catholic primary schools.
The competition followed a series of educational visits that the Clean Neighbourhoods team have made to schools in the Hinckley area to talk to the youngsters about environmental crime.
