Jesmond Pets in Distress

Keep Jesmond Clean (KJC) is pleased to announce a new campaign to raise awareness of the increasing problem of broken glass on our streets and the damage it causes. People living in Jesmond have told KJC about the distress they and their injured pets have experienced. A banner and poster campaign funded by Keep Jesmond Clean with support and donations from Newcastle University, NUSU, and Jesmond Community Pool and Gym will run throughout the year.

NUSU supported the campaign by displaying digital posters in the SU. KJC have banners on display at locations in Jesmond: Jesmond Nursery Osborne Road; Tesco’s on Acorn Road, Sainsbury’s opposite West Jesmond Metro Station and Jesmond Swimming Pool, Glenthorn Road.

KJC are grateful to everyone involved for their support in the campaign.  

They hope these visual messages will highlight the damage that can be caused, by leaving bottles and glasses on garden walls, on the pavements and lanes when in Jesmond.

Katie Smyth, NUSU President – “Here at NUSU we are pleased to support this campaign and are active in getting our students involved. We are all playing our part in keeping our community clean and hope residents will join us in this important initiative. “

Dan Perry, Chair of Keep Jesmond Clean-: "This is a really exciting campaign for us. Keep Jesmond Clean wanted to find a way to highlight how dangerous broken glass can be, not just to people. The posters have a great visual impact and we hope people take care with glass in the streets and if they break it then they clear it up afterwards."
