Note to dog owners: From today dogs are only allowed on the Pavilion end of Weymouth Beach and on Preston Beach. This ban runs until the 1st October. They also need to be on their leads at Nothe Gardens until the summer season is over. Not that it feels like nearly summer with all the rain hammering against my window. According to the Met Office it’s been the wettest winter in 250 years and today it feels like it could be the wettest spring too. Oh well time to put on the water proofs and find somewhere new to walk the hound.
