OMG, Its the first time I've heard of someone saying an area stinks of dog and horse wee. This forum never fails to surprise me.
I must teach my dog to use the toilet at home before we go for a walk next. :D :lol: ridiculous
Have you seen how much wee a horse can produce?

That all depends on whether it was the horse or their rider that produced it :shock:

I hope they are free of horseshit . We seldom use horse for any, garden projects . Pig or cow is much better.

Following a failed attempt via the RNLI to restrict outsiders from our waves the H'ove #localsonly campaign has been escalated.

The grim reality is that millions of people in cities have been cooped up for months in tiny miserable flats and houses with no gardens and nothing to do, and have gone stir crazy. Im not condoning the overcrowding and stupid behaviour at all, just trying to understand it. Im not sure its politically viable to then tell them that they cant go anywhere nice because the people who live in nice places (like me) are more worried than the government.

A lot of truth in this.... I've got a young lad working indirectly for me, based in London, small flat, little natural daylight, and no garden... he's very concerned about exposure and his mental health is not great. Easy to forget how tough its been for some, when you can sit in the sun in your nice suburban garden with a cold G&T on a weekend. :(

BCP Council wants #localsonly as well. Near Bournemouth/Sandbanks beaches car were parked all over the place as the car parks were full. Litter & BBQ fires all over the place as well. With the lockdown being relaxed some morons are thinking they are now 'free' and can do as they please disobeying all rules and advice and social niceties.

With little prospect of air travel returning to normal this summer this is going to continue as people stay in the UK. What we really need is the jet stream to revert to its normal path & the usual British weather to keep the crowds away.

BCP Council Leader urgently calls for stricter travel rules after the weekend's chaotic beach scenes
Posted on Monday 1st June 2020
The Leader of BCP Council Councillor Vikki Slade has formally written to the area’s MPs and the Chief Constable of Dorset Police after widespread scenes of irresponsible behaviour witnessed across the area’s beaches.

The Leader felt compelled to call for greater support for the area after witnessing first hand numerous incidents of failing to adhere to social distancing rules, illegal parking, widespread barbecues and staff facing abuse when going about their work. Many of the visitors to the beaches were people who had travelled from outside of Dorset.

In her letter, Councillor Slade wrote:

“You will have seen that as councils we have done everything we can to prepare for visitors to our areas by opening car parks so people can park safely, by providing toilets so people can stay hygienic, by asking for increased patrols in public places including our parks and beaches.

“We are working hard to create social distancing plans for town centres so local people can shop, and businesses can begin to open and our economy begin to recover and we have supported out care homes and schools to prepare for the next stage of the roadmap.

“Three weeks ago, following the Prime Minister’s announcement that people could travel wherever they liked as long as they did not stay out overnight we discussed the possibility of limiting travel distance. We were told clearly that this was not possible. We shared our concerns about how we could manage an influx of visitors and it became obvious that as local authorities we had few powers, beyond closing some car parks but that we could not remove people from the area.

“Today we saw the most awful scenes in Durdle Door with the arrival of two helicopters to deal with the stupidity of people jumping from the top of cliffs, cheered and clapped by thousands of beachgoers. We saw the kettling of people to give space to the helicopters and the closely packed paths as people were told to leave. In Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole we have seen crowds on our beaches, in large groups clearly not from the same household, we have had council officers spat at, abused and intimidated as they go about their work and I am asking you all to go back to Ministers in Westminster and ask them to put a travel restriction on England, as they have done in Wales and Scotland.

“In those devolved nations you can only travel 5 miles from home for reasons other than work or risk fines, and I am asking that a similar policy is brought in for England with immediate effect. My suggestion is that rather than a mileage limit, the restriction is on the first part of the postcode, for us it would be BH or DT. This would enable people to travel to local parks, beaches and beauty spots, to get to shops, markets and schools or to travel to work. It would not be foolproof, but there would be some tolerance but it would enable us to do what we intended to do – to enable the 800,000 residents of Dorset to enjoy Dorset.

“This is a matter of urgency and I respectfully request that you escalate this and let me know the reaction. I am sure that council leaders in other coastal areas will be sharing similar concerns and making similar requests and I am very happy to discuss this with you collectively or individually at your convenience.”
