Cleaner streets and parks initiative

Heath Big Local Partnership representatives, Zdzislaw Krupski, Rupert Hill and Lynne Shelton were pleased to present prizes to Uttoxeter youngsters who won the recent HBL competition to design a street sign promoting cleaner streets and an end to dog fouling.

"We've had really great entries for this competition, " said Rupert Hill "the children certainly knew what they wanted to say."

During HBL consultations with Heath residents, many people mentioned dog fouling in particular as being a serious issue. Some of the signs will be displayed in locations where significant dog fouling and litter has been seen during HBL litter picks.

"If anyone knows of a particular location that they think would benefit from a sign, then please do let us know" said Lynne Shelton. "We'll also be taking another look around the Heath identifying any other problem areas as well."
