Give Parks Back to our Children

How many times has your child stepped into dog mess on their way into school?

Sacred Heart and Christ Church Schools in Battersea have a burning problem with this because they are located in Falcon (Banana) Park, where most dog walkers bring their dogs. Our children in KS1 have their lessons on the carpet, and both schools waste valuable learning time going through great lengths to ensure that there aren’t any  germs on children’s shoes. In addition, these schools hold their Sports Days in this park with tremdous health hazards, since they inspect and clean the area only before the games. We have therefore decided to join Sure Start Parents’ initiative to demand from Wandsworth Council to clean our parks, sidewalks and commons from dog mess and designate more dog wardens to inspect more often the parks and especially pavements around schools. We have signed the petition with these issues in mind and hope these will be resolved fairly quickly.
