Alas not many dogs can read

YOUR correspondents Mr and Mrs Smith - dogs shouldn’t be allowed on beach (Herald, September 7) obviously missed seeing all those signs along the seafront requesting dog owners to keep their animals on lead.

As for allowing dogs on the beach I thought there was a ‘Universal Law’ that says ‘no dogs on beach between May 1 and September 30!

Alas not many dogs can read. Whilst enjoying a warm sunny morning recently on the beach at Holywell, for every dog on lead five were running loose (on the sand).

What can I say, apparently bye-laws don’t count for much in Eastbourne.
