Safe driverWell heres another moan about roads and danger. some folk dont seem to "CONNECT" the two but here we go...

In the local rag recently it was announced that it was unlikely that a slip-road will be made at the junction on the A35 at Eype, on the "bypass", which I'm sure most would agree is BAD NEWS!

It’s Bridport Town Council who’ve kicked parking into touch ……..

It’s recently come to light that it is Bridport Town Council, and not the District Council, who is to blame for rejecting the opportunity of extra car parking in the town centre.   It seems that the often used excuse by the town council of things being decided by the District Council just doesn’t hold up to the facts of this matter.

Following a recent price increase "in-line" with this year's budget, there are rumblings of a further hike in beer prices to kick in just before the summer. Yes, Palmers have done it again, and it won't be long before you don't get much change from a tenner after buying a couple of pints.

There seems to be some confusion as to when these new recycling boxes and bags should be put out and frankly it's no wonder the pamphlets issued with these items were unclear to say the least and were the first things I put in my waste paper bag. Well those of us online can just go to the WDDC website and find out, spread the word.

Nominated so far... 

Signwriter and real artist, famed for his superb pub signs also the beautiful welcome to Bridport sign at the east gate. Pop quiz - What pub was nicknamed "The Mouse" after a small detail in its sign?

Herring GullIt's that time to resurrect the Seagull issue again. They screech 24/7, disassemble dustbins, befoul our cars, buildings and washing lines and are generally considered a pest. On the other side of the coin they are beautiful creatures doing what comes naturally to them. So what is to be done? Bridport Radio wants your views leave your comments below.

Victoria Grove speed limit campaigner Maureen Hymas has asked Bridport Town Council to back a speed limit of 20mph along Victoria Grove after a pet cat was killed!
Slow done on Victora GroveShe said: "Yet another pet cat has died a slow and painful death and one can only assume from his condition that this was the result of careless and callous driving. "It is only a cat you may think but next time it could be a child, it could be you, me or indeed anyone if something isn't done."

BENCHMARK DECISION!Well if they are giving Pugh a bench, what are they going to dedicate to the guy who's taken over his patch and only holds a piece of cardboard - a school? BTW is it not illegal to beg? he would be better off off his butt and out trying to better his situation, Plenty of people have a hard life and try to make it better, Pugh selling The Big Issue for example, but not many get a public memorial - This outpouring of sentiment is just onanism. Let us know what you think, add your comments...
