Dog Fouling Campaign Volunteers Needed!

Burnham-on-Sea and Highbridge Town Council is launching A Dog Fouling Awareness Campaign to encourage more people to pick up after their dogs.  We are eager to highlight that dog fouling is a human problem and want to see dog owners take responsibility by picking up after their dogs and reducing the amount of dog mess being left in public spaces.

Dog fouling whether loose or bagged is a potential health hazard.  It is a widespread problem, but sometimes changing the behaviour of just a few thoughtless dog owners can make a big difference.

The Campaign will run week commencing the 24th June, and volunteers are needed to undertake surveys and stenciling to help highlight areas of high offence, volunteers will not be expected to pick up any dog poo.

Volunteers must be able to attend the pre-briefing on the 20th June 2024 at 6pm held at The Old Courthouse, Jaycroft Road, Burnham-on-Sea, TA8 1LE.

If you would like to volunteer, please register for inclusion in our organised surveys.  All equipment and Hi-Viz tabards will be provided by the Town Council.

To register as a volunteer or tell us about an area which has a particular problem please email: info@burnham-highbridge-tc.gov.uk
