School children lead way in preventing dog fouling

 

Greenbelt was proud to help in the funding of the Drumsagard Village poster competition that reached its grand finale with a prize giving at Hallside Primary School.

 

As sponsor of rugby team Glasgow Warriors, Greenbelt also arranged for Warrior and Scotland Internationalist Tom Ryder to meet the children and hand out the prizes.

The Drumsagard Village Residents Association (DVRA) poster competition has been aimed at combatting local dog fouling as part of the Clean-up Drumsagard campaign.

The contest was open to children aged 4 to 11 from Hallside Primary school and the winning design in each category feature in the Clean-up Drumsagard campaign 2014.

Alex Middleton, Chief Executive of Greenbelt, the largest UK-wide company that owns and manages greenbelt land formed as part of new housing developments, commented: “We’re delighted to have been able to help in what is a fantastic community endeavour. It’s heartening to see the youngsters becoming so involved in the bid to combat the menace of dog fouling.

“As a responsible land management company, Greenbelt is keen to promote high-quality, sustainable living by providing open spaces that are green and safe. With this in mind,we do everything we can to help keep our open spaces free from litter and dog fouling so that everyone can enjoy them, as well as maintain the value of their homes.

“This is boosted by government action at national and local level, as well as campaigns such as the fantastic Clean-up Drumsagard project.”

The quality of the entries were so good that the judges found it impossible to choose just three winners and so, as well as having 3 overall winners whose designs will be printed for the campaign, they chose two runners-up for each of the categories.
