A new campaign has been launched in Peasedown St John, with the help of a six year old girl.
Lola Callow, who attends Peasedown St John Primary School, has become so concerned about the amount of dog poo around her village that she’s designed a poster to target irresponsible dog owners.
Over the last seven days the Lola’s ‘Please pick up your poo’ campaign has become a craze on social media websites Facebook and Twitter – with residents displaying copies in their homes and car windows.
After designing the poster Lola showed it to one of her B&NES Councillors Nathan Hartley, who decided to give his backing to the campaign. He said: “The best campaigns are often those started by ordinary every day people. What makes this campaign even more prominent is that it was triggered by a six year old girl who cares about her community and the environment.
“Lola has done a fantastic job designing the poster. I’d encourage anyone who agrees with her to downland a copy and display it in their windows at home or in their car.”
Residents all over Peasedown have joined the campaign from Wellow Tyning to Albert Avenue, and from Church Road to Russet Way. To download your copy of the poster visit www.peasedown1st.org.uk.
Lola hopes that by seeing her poster people will know how sad it makes her feel, and that dog walkers will think twice before walking away.
