Midlothian councillor spearheads anti-dog mess campaign

An anti-dog fouling campaign is gathering steam in Gorebridge.

Spearheaded by Councillor Wilma Chalmers, the drive, which was initiated following a number of complaints from residents, will culminate with the installation of signage within the public parks.

In an effort to raise awareness and to address concerns about dog fouling, Mrs Chalmers kick-started a campaign in Newtongrange and Gorebridge with poster competitions in schools. The competitions were championed by the Pupil Council at Newtongrange Primary and the Learning Council at Gorebridge Primary, with winning posters from each school to be turned into signage to be displayed in public parks.
