Dog-mess clean up at Washdyke

A COMMUNITY clean-up event has been arranged in a bid to rid the Washdyke Lane recreation ground in Hucknall of dog mess.

In recent weeks, the Dispatch has backed a campaign launched through Facebook to crack down on dog droppings.

Now Ashfield District Council has joined the fight by organising a clean-up combined with a litter-pick on Wednesday April 4.

The session coincides with the school Easter holidays and it is hoped local residents and children will take part. Youngsters who get involved will be presented with Easter eggs.
