A great selection of bars and hotels

I AM writing in response to the letter written by Mr Rogers, regarding kite flying on the beach in Weston.

I AM writing in response to the letter written by Mr Rogers, regarding kite flying on the beach in Weston.

Maybe he is unaware of how big Weston beach is and facilities that run the length of it?

From Marine Lake, to the soon to be new and improved Grand Pier, there are no donkeys or indeed donkey men who so say 'own' the beach.

Running along this stretch of beach is a great selection of bars and hotels, all of which offer great food and drink, all of them also have toilets.

The reason the 'donkey men' don't like kites flying near their animals, is because it scares them. A small family-run business, that have had donkeys and attractions on Weston beach for generations, and recently won a nationally recognised award, put the safety of their animals, and the children who ride them before a lone man and his quest to fly his kite.

There only seems to be one option to Mr Rogers as the entire length of Weston beach is unsuitable for kite flying. There is an open top bus service that runs from Town to Sand Bay which a pensioner with a pass could catch for free. Sand Bay is a lovely quiet beach where you could stand from dawn till dusk flying not just one but maybe two kites at a time.

I am not trying to be a kill joy but a true Westonian born and bred fed up with people moaning about everything.

PS Did you see the International Kite Festival with kites flying from around the world held on Weston beach this year, brilliant?
