Wendy Weaver… I remember where they used to stand – my dog used to make straight for that area to roll in the poo and then we’d have to take him straight home for a bath
Pete Houghton… It’s was a shame it stopped the were treated with respect as someone said if they did not want to move they would not and they walked on sand
