Two 10-year-olds wrote to the council asking for a dog waste bin to be put up after dog mess was thrown into their school’s grounds.

Lucy King and Courtnie Harris, of St Mary’s Academy, Mildenhall, wrote to Forest Heath District Council chairman, councillor Chris Barker, asking if an additional bin could be placed close to the school as a deterrent.

Lucy said: “I think it’s really cool that they have listened to what we said and taken us seriously. It is something that we will be able to remember forever.”

Cllr Barker said: “I’m delighted Forest Heath District Council has been able to help and proud of what Lucy and Courtnie have achieved.

“I hope the extra bin will have the desired effect in deterring the offensive behaviour of discarding dog mess in the school grounds.”
