Mileaters survive the pub with no beer.

Nicks coastal walk c

14 Mileaters gathered at Burton Bradstock for the next section in our Coast Path odyssey. On paper, a fairly level walk to Abbotsbury awaited, but after eventually negotiating the 3 miles to West Bexington, 50% of which was on shingle, we realised why the Army used beaches for training.

At West Bexington a well-earned coffee break was enjoyed and 5 more members joined us for the final 3 1/2 miles to Abbotsbury; 10 minutes of beach and then it was merely a case of avoiding the deep pools of rainwater remaining from recent downpours - a stark contrast  to the wonderful weather that accompanied us on our route, cool and breezy but clear blue skies.

At last St.Catherine's Chapel came into view and time for a photo-call, with great views south to The Fleet, and north to the surrounding hills. One small rise and we were across the finishing line; our reward awaited. But no, the pub had run out of draught beer! Toys collected from around the pram we made good with ciders, lagers and the odd "Peculier" bottle, accompanied by an excellent lunch.

Waste Watch Scheme
- operating in the village.

Although papers can be separated and recycled with the bi-weekly refuse collection this scheme means that the local parish can financially benefit from separate treatment of newspapers.

There are two collection points each located at the Parish Office and the car park of the Village Hall by means of a green bin or box.

Your used newspapers and magazines can be bundled into manageable piles and securely tied with sturdy string. Newspapers and magazines should be bundled separately but can be placed in the same boxes and are regularly collected.

Please use this method of recycling where possible as credit is received via the current scheme to the parish for use towards local matters.
