Once again we have a sunny half term day with hundreds of families with their kids playing on the beach. The amusement arcade, the ice cream shop and the toilets are all on the other side of the road along which two way traffic can proceed at 30 miles an hour against a fence of parked cars, vans and suvs. There have already been deaths here. Why o why isn’t the road closed all year around?

Coming back from Studland today, I counted over 25 holes in the roads from the start of Studland village, along the main road and along the seafront and up the High Street as far as the Black Swan pub.
Under half the holes had marks round them for repair and these were confined to a short section of the sea front.
With all the money we all pay in various taxes which are supposed to be used for the transport system, it dosnt look like much of this is actually going into maintaining the current roads.
Perhaps if more people reported seeing new holes in the roads, they could be repaired before they get too big and dangerous for motorbikes, cycles and cars.

2-00pm - 4-30pm at the Swanage Town Hall Purbeck District Council is investigating the "hum" in Swanage and people affected by the noise are invited to drop in to give their opinions and comments to the Council’s Public Health Team.
Unexplained noises are a common problem for residents in Purbeck and can be very irritating especially if the source of the noise cannot be traced.
The information gathered will be used to find out how widespread the problem is within Swanage and to help the Council’s investigation to reach a conclusion.
If any members of the public have any queries or concerns, please contact: The Environmental Health Officer, Purbeck District Council.
Telephone: 01929 557 328 Purbeck District Council, Westport House, Worgret Road, Wareham, 0H20 4PP

Blimey - this thread reads like a fiesty night in the pub, only it appears that some of the rowdy regulars have fallen asleep or gone home now and the conversation has got sensible again! No doubt I could read back to my earlier posts and find something someone would be offended by though - apologies if that's the case!
Can I suggest that we have a new thread that deals only with POSITIVE and CONSTRUCTIVE ideas about the way forward for education in Swanage and Purbeck? If we were to start from the assumption that the proposal may be re-thought we could play with ideas, either 2 or 3 tier, with any and all ideas put forward?
The rules would have to be that a post could suggest a closure, merger, new-build, secondary school, university or the status quo without being shouted down... difficult I know, but we need to talk about these things. In a new thread you would have to give positive reasons for change though, not negative reasons why a given school might not be one w=you agree with!
