Walkies! A guide to dog walks in Bournemouth

Bournemouth Dogs, Dorset Dogs and BCP Council have launched a new leaflet highlighting some fantastic dog walking areas around Bournemouth. 

Supported by the Park Cafes, the initiative aims to work with dog owners to solve issues with land mangers and in turn promote responsible ownership.

Only Rain Down the Drain!

In Poole we're working with Litter Free Coast and Sea to pass on the message that the street drains outside homes are only designed to take rainfall, which run straight in to Poole Park lakes and lagoon. We are also informing people that feeding the birds in the Park large amounts of bread is unhealthy and can pollute the water they live in. 

Please take part in our survey to help us get an understanding of what the campaign has achieved.
