Help force NI Water to respect our beaches

You can help me raise water purity standards on our local beaches this year by simply taking photos when you are at the beach during 2014.

To get the highest standards of water purity in our local beaches, we have to be recognised as ‘Bathing Waters’ under the EU directive – and need to back it up with photos showing the beaches are used for walking, bathing and family outings.

Only photographs from this year’s bathing water season onwards can be considered. There have to be a minimum of 45 bathers on one occasion or 100 beach users on two occasions.

If you or your family can organise pictures like this (bring 45 friends – I am!) then email, Facebook or post them to me as part of this campaign.

DOWNPATRICK CONGESTION UPDATE – JANUARY 2014

I campaigned relentlessly last year via the Down Roads committee and the Downpatrick Masterplan working party to have Roads Service to withdraw their assertion that there no serious congestion in the Downpatrick Area. The Roads Service finally came clean, see below, and I got a rare complement from the Down Recorder for my efforts
