Badge Latest

Sandy is a member of the Dorset Sole Sisters running club based in South Dorset. They meet on Monday evenings in Dorchester and Wednesday evenings in Weymouth with summertime venues in the local countryside. Please click on the logo for details of this club.


In 2008 Geoff published two reports on the effect of climate change on Weymouth. One dealt with sea level rise and the other on weather pattern changes. Much of the residential and commercial areas of the town are within three metres of mean sea level and are therefore threatened with potentially disastrous flooding in the absence of a significant investment on flood control.

He cannot remember why he started doing this or why he continues as the tree hardly has changed over the years. This is slightly more interesting than watching paint dry - or is it?
