The two police officers on duty for Purbeck over night, if they come to Swanage and were to arrest one of the hundreds of riotous drunks the nearest custody suites are either Poole or Dorchester thereby taking up half their shift processing them ‘within their Human Rights’, (what of the Rights of Swanage Council Tax payers and residents ?) Why not have ‘holding suites/cells’ at Swanage Police Station, (if it is still there) and transport them in bulk to Poole for processing, or better still don’t grant anymore alcohol licenses or renew existing ones.
If you agree then post a comment or better still write with your complaint to:-
PCD WESTPORT HOUSE,
WAREHAM, BH20 4PPP
Or email; email@example.com
NOT LATER THAN THE 28th JULY 2011.

Swanage Pier is a magical place to be on a summers evening and we would love to be able to keep the pier and the shop open for longer during the warmer months'. But at the moment we don't have enough volunteers to make this possible. We need more help and would love to hear from anyone who would like to spend a couple of hours on a summers evening chatting to customers, helping to serve simple refreshments or perhaps standing on the gate taking the evening toll fees. To get involved please phone our lovely shop Manager Kathy on 01929 425806
Or call into the shop for a chat with one of our friendly volunteers
Or you can find out more by visiting www.swanagepier.com

The Red Orb Exhibition' - Raising the profile of three dimensional art to a new level!
10 Purbeck Sculptors, 9 invited sculptors, 5 selected sculptors, all with one aim in common:-
A unique collaboration, exclusively showcasing an eclectic mix of contemporary sculpture, from some of the South's most accomplished three-dimensional artists, working in a diverse variety of mediums and styles, from willow to wire, and from the classical to the contentious!
Featuring work from Andrew Thomas, Marzia Colonna ARBS, Jonathan Sells, Greta Berlin, Robert Mileham, Vivien Mallock ARBS, Scott Taylor, Richard Atkinson-Willes, Moira Purver ASWA, Emma Pickering, Martin Debenham, Carlotta Barrow, Chris Burke, Robin Beuscher, Sue Lansbury, Kim Creswell, Jo Burchell, and Jamie Hart. It will be a totally new experience for Purbeck, as an exhibition of this kind has never previously been organised in this area before.
Curator Andrew Thomas said:
“This is such a tremendous achievement for all that are involved.” “Purbeck is traditionally known for its landscape artists, but we really want to change people's perspective of what is happening here.” “There is definitely an emerging cultural art scene that will rival anything in the U.K. which is hugely positive for us.” We hope that with enough support, the Red Orb Exhibition will be an annual event.” “Leeson House is also such a unique venue, I think everyone who visits will be surprised and inspired.”
The Red Orb Sculpture Exhibition runs from Tuesday 30th August - to Monday 5th September 2011.daily from 10am - 5pm
3 indoor Galleries to explore, Outdoor Sculpture Trail, demonstrations
Venue: Leeson House, Langton Matravers, Swanage, Dorset, BH19 3EU
