Making a stand

Andover Afternoon Pre-School Class have made a stand against inconsiderate dog-walkers. The children have been campaigning about the amount of dog poo on the path at the rear of the school, next to the railway line, which the chidlren go along for autumn walks. Staff member Miss Glen explained: "The children went for a walk along the path and a lot of them stood in dog poo, which created a lot of discussion when back at nursery. They have made posters, as well as contacting The Brechiner and Jill Kay the Community Warden. We've been given dog poo bags from the community warden to hand out to dog-walkers and friends and family." 'Following the visit from the Community Warden, the children were told that due to their posters and highlighting of the issue, the path would now be cleared of dog's dirt, along with new signs being put up along the path, and a new bin for mess to go in. Dennis' store on Montrose Street have also put one of the children's posters up in their window to highlight the problem.'Pictured a
