New parking charges and losing Poole Park train

Nadine Q in Branksome
Are the decisions to implement the parking charges now final? Is it definite that the little train in Poole Park is being moved to Upton Park?
Odette D
What about proposed beach parking charges being in force from the 1st of March? Has a new petition been started? I signed one last year with many others, but obviously Poole Borough is bent on ignoring the wishes of the residents. The proposed charge ... [ more ]

Please go to this link to express your view and have your say https://content.govdelivery.com/accounts/UKPOOLE/bulletins/1803322
Odette D
I have given up driving to Bournemouth Hospital, but there is only one bus per hour through Upper Parkstone and it takes about 45 minutes to get there. Obviously people making these decisions do not have a clue of how difficult it is to get to ... [ more ]

When caught short in Poole, I use the toilets at either Poole Pottery or Sainsbury's, but, of course, they are only available when the shops are open!

As a French native, I would like to join an existing circle of French speaking people in Poole. Does anybody know of such a circle?

To any Virgin Media customer, I have just received an email stating that my payment details were not correct and that I would be disconnected on the 21st of October. I have called Virgin Media to check that it was a scam. If you get a similar message, ... [ more ]

I am also registered with TPS, but it does not work with calls from abroad. Still, I do not get many, but email scams do worry me, although AVAST anti-virus usually warns me.

Dentist in Parkstone/Whitecliff area.

Odette D
Pasadena Dental Practice in Ashley Road, Parkstone, takes NHS and private patients. I have used it for number of years and I am reasonably satisfied with the treatment I have received. It is a fairly small practice and there is no long wait.

Recycling query

Lynda G
in Newtown
A bit of a strange question here - I have two plastic bottles to recycle - I need to remove the contents i.e.sauces.   Where do I throw the contents?  The sink, the toilet, the bin?
Odette D
If I can't clean the containers properly, I put them in the black bin, otherwise you "contaminate" the blue bin and it might not be collected.

A little out of the Branksome area but I use this branch. It closes on the 16th December. Not many other Barclays branches left, Poole, Westbourne & Canford Cliffs. The Poole branch is being refurbished at the moment to take advantage of "latest ... [ more ]
Odette D
I refuse to bank online, as I don't think it is safe. I get charged for paper billing by Virgin Media among others, but I prefer to pay a bit more than having my bank account hijacked! Hopefully, Barclays won't close more branches.

Odette D
Thanks to all for the info and I am sorry, Bob, about your wife. Years ago I was working in a Technical College ,an old building which was being demolished, and I am pretty sure I may have been exposed to asbestos dust. Just keeping my fingers crossed!

Vehicles not indicating.

Gail I
in Oakdale
Please, please can I remind all drivers, including cyclists, to indicate their intention to turn IN PLENTY OF TIME - Pedestrians need to know what a vehicle's intention is as much as other drivers need to know. It's not good indicating at the point of ... [ more ]
Odette D
Is it a Dorset disease? I noticed it when I moved from Surrey 17 years ago and it is not improving. The worst is when drivers turn off at a roundabout without indicating, depriving you of a chance to pull out!

Filter arrow

Odette D
in Newtown
A driving instructor once told me that I did not have to wait for the filter arrow to turn right if it was safe to do so on the green light alone. Unfortunately, many drivers do not know this and wait even where there is a gap in traffic. This is ... [ more ]

I have been with Cable & Wireless/NTL/Virgin Media for over 17 years and apart from a problem with broadband which was eventually solved, I am reasonably satisfied with the service. When they increased their price a few months ago I called them to ... [ more ]

Dogs on the Beach

Odette D
Dogs should not be allowed on the beach between Easter and September, when young children play in the sand. Also, cyclists should respect the speed limit on the promenade and use cycle lanes instead or riding on the pavement!

Bins

Most people are happy to spend a little extra to have a green garden bin and I am sure that most of us would prefer to pay extra to continue with our weekly bin collection. However our councilors have decided that there is no health risk from insect ... [ more ]
