Campaign to clear up Clevedon’s dog mess problem
PUBLISHED: 15:00 25 February 2017
A dog trainer has begun a campaign to clear Clevedon of dog mess.
Lucy Shipway will host Poo Patrol meetings offering volunteers the chance to clean up a different area prone to dog mess each month.
Lucy says dog fouling is a serious issue in Clevedon’s parks and playing fields, and has called on the community to work together to combat it.
She said: “Sadly there is a bad problem in Clevedon.
“I am a local dog walker so see this all the time.
“Although I pick up after people where I can it’s not enough, and from talking to other local dog walkers I know they feel the same.
“Rather than moaning about it I decided to do something about it and make sure it is a regular thing, not just a one off.
“This way we will be able to clear different areas each time.
“Hopefully if we pull together as a community others will get on board as well.”
Volunteers will be provided with bags, hand cleaning equipment and hi-vis vests.
The first meeting will be held at the playing fields in Hazell Close from 2-3pm on March 4.
