A 12-year-old Preesall schoolboy has won a trophy for his community conscious campaign against dog fouling.
Brandon Evans, a pupil at St Aidan’s CE Technology College won this year’s Sheraton Trophy.
He was nominated by the Garstang and Over Wyre neighbourhood policing team for his work on the Preesall Dog Fouling Challenge.
Awarded annually to an individual, group or team, the Sheraton Trophy recognises young people who have brought pride to the Wyre borough as a result of their achievements.
Brandon is planning to have a rest from the campaign and concentrate on his skateboarding for a while, but may well revisit it during the summer holidays.
Brandon set up the Challenge after noticing a problem with dog fouling in the area when he was out and about on his skateboard.
He began by picking up dog mess left behind by irresponsible dog owners. With the help of his family he set up a facebook page – Preesall Dog Fouling Challenge – highlighting the problem and aiming to get other people involved.
Brandon’s dad, Stephen Evans,said: “I am really pleased with the recognition that Brandon has had from the public, local newspapers and radio and Wyre Council.”
