LITTER bins in Otley will soon be sporting a specially designed message for dog owners.

Otley in Bloom asked schoolchildren to create images for a sticker to support a campaign against dog fouling. The result is a design featuring a picture of a dog and the message Bag the Poo, Any Litter Bin Will Do.

Three winning entries, by pupils from St Joseph’s and Westgate primary schools, were chosen with Westgate pupil Avy Michelsberg’s picture of a dog selected as overall winner. Elements from each were combined by Rhiannon Hughes, from The Yorkshire Wordwright, and the finished design has now been printed.

Avy was congratulated by Rhiannon and Katie Burnett, from Otley in Bloom, when they visited her school and led a lesson on design.
