Lennox Herald - - NEWS -

Vol­un­teers have been left dis­heart­ened af­ter beau­ti­ful flower beds were left tram­pled and cov­ered in dog mess.

The Leamy Foun­da­tion, who planted a num­ber of flower beds in Alexan­dria, are gut­ted that the com­mu­nity space has been wrecked and are urg­ing dog own­ers to pick up af­ter their pets.

The group of res­i­dents pro­mote self-im­prove­ment and well­be­ing by get­ting vul­ner­a­ble mem­bers of the com­mu­nity in­volved in gar­den­ing.

In a post on our Face­book page The Leamy Foun­da­tion wrote:“A sad sight.The flower beds that we planted down at the Cen­tral Alexan­dria BlueTri­an­gle Glas­gow Hous­ing As­so­ci­a­tion Ltd grow­ing space have been tram­pled and are cov­ered in dog mess.

“It’s dis­heart­en­ing to see some­thing which lo­cal res­i­dents have cre­ated and are proud of be­ing spoiled like this.

“Our vol­un­teers shouldn’t have to clean up other peo­ple’s dog mess and yet that is ex­actly what they’re hav­ing to do. I con­grat­u­late them for their ded­i­ca­tion to bright­en­ing up the lo­cal area.

“Dog poo bags can be picked up in the Cen­tral Alexan­dri­aTenants and Res­i­dents As­so­ci­a­tion - CATRA hall, 5 Alexan­der Street.

“Also as a re­minder, those caught al­low­ing their dog to foul any area could be faced with an £80 fine.”
