I AM writing to ask you to please be considerate and pick up your dog mess. Myself and other children use the path along Bournheath Road regularly to walk to school, sometimes we have trod in dog mess which we then walk into our school.

It can spread germs, diseases and can be dangerous.

Also, pushchairs have got it all over their wheels or they have to be pushed into the road to avoid it.

As we are encouraged to walk to school, we need a clean and safe path so please, clean up after your dog.

Harry Smith
