South Dorset UKIP are holding a 'Mad hatters tea party' starting 2pm on Saturday the 29th of August at Albany house, Kingston Lane, Worth Matravers.

Do I detect a sense of irony?

Traffic right of way in town centre

Does anyone else think there needs to be clearer give way signs and road markings from Rempstone Road into Station Road.

Yet again today someone pushing their way in from Rempstone road nearly hit a car which had right of way coming from Kings Road as they drove into Station road without bothering to slow down as they failed to give way!

Bay View Caravan Park

Is the Council about to announce the sale of Swanage Bay View Holiday Park? There was an extraordinary meeting of the Town Council on Aug. 10th to discuss changes to the contract....has the deal reached its conclusion? What will it provide for the people of Swanage?

Local Apprenticeships

Are local business people concerned that they are unable to share their
experience and knowledge with younger people? Is it the paper work
and/or Health and Safety that puts people off supporting young people
to sign up for apprenticeship schemes. There is a concern that
practical trades are dying out in the Purbeck area. It would be a great
shame if we lost these practical skills. Would anyone like to comment
about this?

Weather report

The Echo says on July 31:

BOURNEMOUTH’S tourism chief has revealed plans to install new cameras
along the seafront in a bid to provide accurate online weather
information for the resort.

Mr Smith told the Daily Echo: “With a couple of local companies, we are
exploring the cost and weighing up the feasibility of providing our own
webcams, purely for promotional purposes.

“Then people would not have to rely on inaccurate Met Office forecasts
which have cost us so dearly in the past. They would simply have to go
online to get a correct guide for the weather and surfing conditions.”

Couldn't Swanage benefit from doing this? I understand that each camera
costs round about £200 and has to be replaced every couple of years.
One situated at each end of the bay could do a fantastic job of showing
potential visitors how good the weather is, when the forecast is lousy.

The amount of money, spread over two years, is very little compared to
the potential benefits, surely?
