HI MY SYMPATHY GOES OUT TO THE YOUNG GIRL BITTEN BY AN ADDER  IN THE BOURNMOUTH  AREA BUT THIS  SORT OF INCIDENT WILL HAPPEN MORE AND MORE AS PEOPLE USE THE NATURAL HEATHLAND AS RECREATION FUN PLAY GROUNDS DUE TO EASY ACCESS BOUGHT ON  BY THE CAR AS TRANSPORTATION TO ONCE INACCESSABLE HEATHS THAT  COULD ONLY BE GOT TO ON FOOT BY THE STALWART FEW. AND THE LACK OF EDUCATION TO THE PUBLIC AS TO WHAT IS DANGEROUSE AND SAFE . ALMOST LIKE SWIMMING WITH SHARKS VERY TRENDY FOR TV PROGRAMS AND IN THE JUNGLE GET ME OUT OF HERE  UNTIL A TIGER KILLS SOME ONE THEN ITS  A BAD PRESS FOR ADDERS  SHARKS TIGERS KILL THEM ALL OUTCRY.. EVERY TIME THERE IS AN AVALANCHE KILLING SKIERS  DO YOU BLAME THE MOUNTAIN AND WANT THEM ALL FLATTENEDKEITH

A news item seen last week in the Eastbourne Herald.  An article about adders where there is sensible advice from an expert.

Oh dear...

Well, if they are poisonous...you shouldn't eat them :P

At least they balanced the article with some semi-sensible advice, as you said.

Pupils from six Poole schools paved the coastal cliff-top path in Pinecliff Gardens, Poole, with a donation of CEMEX Readypave block paving, making it accessible by wheelchair users.

Each school took a section of the 120m path and decorated with a design representing British reptiles.

The schools could select the colour of block paving they required to enhance their designs which were supplied through Keyline's Poole branch.

These included charcoal, red, wheatmeal, Autumn Hue and Burnt Ember to provide the backdrop to designs including 'snake amongst flowers' and 'lizards'.



Article from a trade concrete magazine (don't ask!) - supplied by Richard Barnes.
