Recycling Centre

Seems like the campiagners have won the day. I understand the County Council cabinet has supported proposals to develop the Prospect farm site (behind Victoria Avenue industrial estate) as an alternative to the Panorama Road tip (or having to drive to Wareham). BUT I believe the proposal now has to go to the County Council's 'Asset committee" to determine how they pay for it. So battle not totally won yet perhaps..Mike Hadley

Swanage Apathy

Posted by Anon
I wondered why Swanage wasso quiet on Sunday with very little trade in the shops and cafes until I read the Echo report of the thousands who had turned up for the arrival of Father Christmas in Wareham that day. What a contrast to the non event in Swanage on Saturday in the previous weekend.As there is a direct relationship between the number of people in town and business takings you would think that our local businesses would get together and organise things but not a bit of it. Why? When you talk to them there always seem to be lots of reasons for doing nothing and insurmountalbe obstacles to doing anything themselves. Why do we not have a weekend of Christmas related activities so that the accommodation providers getpart of the action for example. But why, oh whyare they so averse to paying something towards the costs of increasing their turnover?
