A Lympsham pupil’s winning poster design will hopefully encourage people to pick up after their dog.

Seven-year-old Ella Saxon from Lympsham First School has won a poster competition for her creative drawing.

The youngster’s poster will help to educate people about the importance of picking up dog mess.

The competition, run by Dogs Trust, saw Ella chosen from 100 entries after she impressed judge, Wells MP James Heappey, with her fun and eye-catching design.

Dogs Trust’s education officer Emily Brown said: “We were so impressed with all of the pupils’ drawings and picking a winner was extremely hard.

“Ella was the deserving winner but all of the children should be so proud of their creative drawings and congratulated for all of their hard work.”

Ella’s poster will be made into a sticker thanks to Sedgemoor District Council.

The poster will then be displayed around dog fouling hotspots in Burnham and the surrounding area during the summer.
