If the residents of Sandbanks or businesses in and around Poole Harbour need the flood defence stronger, please contact Poole Council. Poole Council have plenty of money availlable for things that are not needed. Traveller sites for people who CONTRIBUTE NOTHING to the council are deemed to be more important than residents and businesses who pay annually but have NO say in what they do with it. Travellers are NOT going to pay for staying on those sites that are costing £250.000 to set-up and £30,000 a year to run. Businesses around Poole Harbour need protection and the tourist trade could be under threat if the harbour wall is breached. Mayor what do you say to those businesses around POOLE HARBOUR and the residents in SANDBANKS?

Around 7pm last night the sky flashed green at least 4 times coinciding with brief power cut, it was roughly NW of Wimborne, anyone know of any power lines arcing or transformers blowing etc, it was quite a sight but I would like to know what it was?

That lightning shot wasn't from last night. It must of been from another time. Look and the sea state as well, it was a bit more choppy than that last night.

Why don't you get your doctor and explain that to him,
There's probably a mental problem your having.
you're smoking too much weed george
also do not drink alcohol to solve your problems they could be making it worse.
I hope your hallucinations disappear (no pun intended) and get well soon .

No but all the ones with Poole Harbour and the beach as their back garden are and they're the ones who are going to get flooded, why should the majority of hard working Poole residents council tax go towards protecting millionaires 2nd and 3rd homes that are empty most of the time?

So what do you want, the money spent on a possibly once in 100yr event, or on something that blights our town every year? If you want to complain to someone complain to Brussells, it's not the councils fault that these people are given the right to just tip up where they like, break into parks and set up camp, and the authorities have no power to move them on unless they provide them with an alternative site.

I'm sorry that the council have decided to build it on your doorstep and I would prefer it if instead they just had the powers to move them but that's never going to happen. Better still make it the farmers and owners of the Steam Fairs responsibility to accommodate them from when they arrive until they leave, if they don't then revoke their licence to hold the event?

It's obviously upsetting to find your beach hut gone but In the grand scheme of things the loss of a shed is hardly devistating, the owners may have paid an awful lot of money for them but it's not the shed their paying for it's the square on concrete it's stood on and they still own that.

is there something wrong with you.
It's obviously upsetting to find your beach hut gone but In the grand scheme of things the loss of a shed is hardly devistating, the owners may have paid an awful lot of money for them but it's not the shed their paying for it's the square on concrete it's stood on and they still own that.

I big thank you to all the teams from the Council who were out working in the bad weather last night, and again today. Not forgetting all those from different Agencies. It's not often I have good word to say about the Council, but the boots on the ground people did a great job.

You wouldn't talk this nonsense if you could afford a beach hut and it as yours that was reduced to firewood so stop whinging and act normal George,
is there something wrong with you.
I hardly think that a few matchwood huts, placed in an exposed area on the beach, warrant any concern from the rest of us. If you rent the hut then you haven't lost anything; if you own it, talk to your insurer.
