Dog Fouling Seminar is Top Dog!
21 May 2010
Keep Britain Tidy held a rather smelly themed seminar last week.
Our Dog Fouling Seminar held at Aston Villa Football was a huge success – attracting more than 130 delegates and seven exhibitors.
The event was held to spearhead our upcoming dog fouling campaign which will launch in September. It tackled the issues surrounding dog fouling and provided a forum upon which to share thinking and ideas on the subject.
A wide range of delegates attended the event, including representatives from local authorities, the Ministry of Defence, housing associations and Yorkshire Water.
The day featured a packed agenda, comprising presentations from a range of experts, including representatives from the University of Central Lancashire, the National Dog Wardens Association and the Dogs Trust.
A range of exhibitors were in attendance, including Dicky Bag, muksak and MDC, who presented delegates with ‘doggy bags’ to take away with them.
The afternoon session included a panel discussion with experts: Andy Jervis, LACORS; Tony Poole, Defra; David Armstrong, Mallard Consultancy; and Steve Robinson, Chartered Institute of Wastes Management.
Keep Britain Tidy’s head of marketing, communications and events, Ginette Unsworth and marketing manager, Louise Marsden were also on hand to provide an expert overview of our upcoming campaign activities.
The campaign, which is under development, will encourage dog owners to bag their dog poo and place it in the bin.
