Dogs

A reminder that dogs must be on a leash over the bridge and north of the river mouth.

The Beach is a road

The beach is considered to be a public road and as such all road conditions apply. Please keep vehicles and bikes off the dunes and please remind any person you may see riding on the dunes. There have been many complaints and the one thing we do not want is a blanket ban on vehicles on the beach. The community constable will be policing the area over the summer so it is up to us to keep the area as safe as possible.

Working Bee

Thank you to those who turned up for the recent working bee at the entrance and to those who helped with the beach clean up.

Security

The area has been trouble-free over recent months but please be security conscious and keep an eye on neighbouring properties. Ring the police with any concerns.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.
