Mileaters engage in a spot of "smuggling"

Coastal walk Nick Feb 1 web

No doubt the founder Mileaters will view our efforts with disdain for it has taken us 2 years to only reach Weymouth in our attempt at The Dorset Coast Path. Well, we have now reached Osmington Mills - that is to say 7 of us (and Molly & Floppy) now have !

Parking up at "The Smugglers" the day began well when we found the ticket machine to be broken (Mileaters 2, Ticket machine nil). Over the hill to Osmington village, the bus duly arrived and deposited us at The Kings Statue, Molly enjoying her first bus ride.

With no one tempted to brave the waters of Weymouth Bay, we marched the length of The Esplanade and soon reached Bowleaze Cove; a pleasure to reach the countryside at last. So followed a fine undulating walk with the sound of the waves below, passing Redcliff Point, the PGL Camp (Lesley could not break in to sample the zipwire) and onwards over Black Head (did anyone spot that ?). From here it was all downhill with the attractions of "The Smugglers" awaiting us.

Despite recent forecasts, the sun shone on us, even if it was rather sticky underfoot at times. Next stop Lulworth Cove?

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.
