  • "Is it 'cos I fish?" So there are safety concerns ... a thin thought that will apply to ; ball games, sand castles, dogs, sunbathing, smoking, bbq's, kissing, opening and closing deck chairs, swimming, food, alcohol, flip flops, kites, bikinis, ice cream, burying uncle Brendan in sand..... > If the council has so much time for mindless meddling then perhaps it should attend more closely to litter and the cleanliness of public lavatories. What or who is the cause of this sad suggestion?
