Sports clubs asked to back dog fouling campaign

Sports clubs are being urged to support Denbighshire County Council's campaign to tackle dog fouling.

The council has written to sports clubs highlighting the problem of dog fouling on sports pitches and open public spaces and asking for support in spreading the message that dog fouling is an anti-social form of behaviour.

Earlier this month, former Welsh rugby player Rupert Moon, (pictured right) who is the General Manager of the North Wales Development Region of the Welsh Rugby Union, lent his support to the campaign and encouraged people to help put a stop to the problem.

Councillor David Smith, Cabinet Lead Member for Environment, said: "Problems with dog fouling incidents on sports pitches across Wales have made the headlines and a small group of individuals allow their dogs to foul on fields and pitches without thinking of the potential consequences  of their behaviour on the health and well-being of others.

"In Denbighshire, we are trying to put a stop to this kind of behaviour and have asked sports clubs for ideas on how we can get the message across to as wide an audience as possible. We need to work together to send a clear message that dog fouling is anti-social and will not be tolerated in our communities."

Sports groups, or indeed any community group wishing to get involved in the campaign should contact Gareth Watson on 01824 706222 or by e-mail:
