A SCARBOROUGH square is set to be clean for the summer after a little help from local school children.

The Residents and Friends of Trafalgar Square (RAFTS) held a dog fouling awareness week in the square.

To help prmote the event they asked children at Friarage School to design posters to remind dog walkers about the problems surrounding dog fouling.

The group received dozens of posters, which were then judged by Scarborough dog wardens.

Colin Charles, chairman of RAFTS, said: “We wanted to raise awareness of dog fouling before summer gets underway so we can have a clean square for all the events we hold over summer.

“The school children made some great posters, which were very bright and colourful. We hope they will do the job and help keep the square tidy.”

The posters are on display in Trafalgar Square.
