And the Council are keen to get everyone’s input, with a chance to vote on what you see as high, medium or low priority for future actions in the town centre.

The event will run from 2pm to 4.30pm and will be manned by the council’s planning team and TGP landscape architects, who will be further developing any ideas which come to the fore, and who will be on hand to explain and discuss the proposals, illustrated by an exhibition with concept drawings.

Dumbarton Primary School and SSPCA at Milton Joined Forces

October 26, 2017 by  

You should never work with children and animals according to W. C. Fields, but in Dumbarton these two forces came together for the overall good!  The Primary 7 class of St Michaels Primary School in Dumbarton and the SSPCA at Milton joined forces to produce both some great education as well as much needed food and money for the animals.

The cat and dog home helped out with the P7 topic where the children were looking at protecting nature and also at promoting life.  As all good campaigners know, producing good leaflets and posters is vital for any campaign to succeed and the P7 class are no exception a they produced booklets for other pupils as well as parents / carers to bring their cause to attention.   They also produced a newsletter for families that launched an appeal for food.  The final piece of work they undertook was that of a coffee and cake  event to raise even more cash.

In the end they raised £300 as well as handed over many bags of food and pet toys for the animals in the local shelter.  SSPCA Supporter, Richard Morgan, said “This is a brilliant effort by the children that not only has made an immediate difference to the animals, but has also educated the children and will leave lasting memories for them.  Thanks to them, the teaching staff and families of St Michaels!”

If you are launching a campaign like the kids did, then it is a great idea to contact a local printer and get advice on leaflets, flyers and booklets that will aide you towards your overall goal.
