Dogs on the Riverbank

We understand that by-laws exist that indicate that people should keep their dogs on a leash/lead all along the riverbank between Wandsworth Bridge and Battersea Bridge.

For all intelligent reasons.

However some dog owners seem either to ignore or be unaware of or simply don’t care about such by-laws.

Some lamp-posts and street-furniture things bear clear signs to this end, many don’t and sadly some bear defaced signs.

So please can those people responsible in our noble council for either or both the communication and implementation of these excellent laws please ensure that they are adhered to.

Making sure that there are sufficient signs would be a good start.

If there’s a ‘human resource issue’ that may prevent the speedy placing of such signs – the writer of this site would be pleased to place them – at no cost whatsoever to the obviously cuts-conscious folks in the Town Hall.

That’s pretty straightforward isn’t it ….

We await your instructions …

imageSo farewell then ….. to the Wandsworth Museum …

And they can’t even tell us where it’s going … And it closed down just in time for the School Holidays – without a home to go to …. I would offer No 77 – if wasn’t like a museum already ….


This blog is dedicated to the people who live in, work in or simply pass through the noble London Borough of Wandsworth.

It exists to let people speak out without fear or favour – to air their views, to comment on the good, the bad and the frustrating aspects of life in and across Wandsworth. Criticism will by necessity abound – but we hope that from time to time we shall be able to publish words and images of a positive nature.

It aims to become a recognised and vibrant discussion forum for our fellow citizens, for those who claim to represent our best interests and for those who work on our behalf.

So let’s hope that it does so …..
