New group mirrors VFW's Civic Pride agenda(October 26, 2010)
Fairy tales sometimes start in the most unusual places as the co-authors of visinforwarminster have now discovered after they wrote about the need for civic pride.
Another one of their initiatives has seen meetings being held at Dewey House in Warminster leading to the 'environmental pride team' being set up that mirrors their vision.
Now the team have agreed to adopt the 'No such thing as the Dog Poo Fairy' design as they try to encourage rather than enforce responsibility on 'man's best friend' owners (see hot topics August 4th)..
The small team have booked a pitch at the Christmas market and are asking for volunteers to help by giving two hours of their time to spead the message.
"I welcome the work that is being done, " says vfw co-author Paul Macdonald.
"I hope that at very little cost to the ratepayer a lot can be achieved. I remember as a twelve-year-old being a member of the Keep Britain Tidy group."
*The contact point for volunteers and those who wish to help is the Warminster area board manager at Wiltshire Council.
