LETTER: Tide Mills still in fine shape

The Friends of Tide Mills has just completed its July meeting, unfortunately in fairly humid conditions.

Fourteen of us managed around seven larger sacks of rubbish this time around which means that, so far into this summer season, overall the whole area from the Buckle to East Pier is still in very fine shape.

Again, as we enter into the main holiday season, we would like to request that everybody who visits this special area please ensure no litter is left behind.

Together we can all make sure Tide Mills remains well cared for and championed for all to enjoy.

We would like again to remind that wheatears, ringed plovers, skylarks and several other species of bird are still nesting and fledging and request that visitors keep disturbance to a minimum if at all possible. If Dogs could be kept under tight control that would be most appreciated.

Our next meeting is Sunday the August 17 (always the third Sunday of each month), meeting at 10am at the waymarker adjacent to the beach at the road leading from the level crossing.

Our meetings last nominally for two hours but all are welcome no matter how much time can be spared.

Our meeting in August will include our annual summer picnic, to which all members past and present are very welcome to come along to.
