Christchurch - "Steamer" Point Nature Reserve Lives Up To Its Name!

Christchurch has decided to take the menace of dog fouling seriously and has declared that any person that is known to be a repeat offender will not be given the option of paying a fixed penalty of £50. They will instead be reported for prosecution and conviction which could lead to a fine of up to £1,000.

This seems to have been prompted by the issuing of two fixed penalty notices for dog fouling at the "Steamer" Point Nature Reserve. I can just imagine the strap line, which the council could use in its new campaign.

Don't Leave a "steamer" at Steamer Point.

There also appears to be some kind of strange cult in existence at Christchurch. Councillor Ray Nottage observes: "It's often more difficult to catch offenders because they allow their dog to do its business at night or when there's no-one around". Does this relate to some form of witchcraft? Why would anybody be crawling around a nature reserve at night allowing their dog to defecate with impunity? As portfolio holder for a "safe and healthy community", it's time Ray turned his attention to the wider implications.

For now, I'm just happy to see Christchurch taking its place in the campaign.

Christchurch, where time is pleasant and fouling never present!
