You have no dog bins around

I AM a regular visitor to Weston with my dog and friends, but it has been very apparent that Weston is NOT a dog friendly place. Whilst walking along the beach the other day, I picked up my dog's mess, as I am a responsible owner, but noticed you have no dog bins around the beach area, or along the streets, so where are you suppose to put the mess? On the town council website they say they have installed 57 dog bins since April 2006, which is terrible for a place like Weston, and where are they? I have seen none! I live in Gloucester and we have dog bins everywhere and they get well used. May I suggest that the town council does something about installing more dog bins on the beach and around the walking area. Also I heard on the news dogs will not be allowed on the beach from April except for a little area, this is disgusting, maybe if you look at the beach on the months that dogs are allowed you will notice there is no dogs' mess! If you go to Brean dogs are allowed on the beach all the year round, there is no mess there, they also have lots of bins, maybe Weston should follow, and not just be unfriendly towards dogs - after all dogs are a man's best friend, and they need to run free, mine met other dogs and they all played together which is nice to see.So come on Weston be a dog friendly place.
