WITH regard to Emily Walmsley’s letter about dogs "running wild on our beaches", I am so pleased I am not in the minority about this.

I totally agreed with Emily. I have children also, and all we ask is to be able to have a bit of space where we can sit, have a picnic and be able to kick a ball around without any dogs near us.

As for Emily’s comment about Australia’s beach “no dogs” policy – wow!

What a good idea. Why are we not implementing it too?

I’m afraid the problem isn’t just confined to New Brighton – there are huge problems at Hoylake and West Kirby.

Yes, to have part of the beach for "families only" and "no dogs" is a great idea, so come on council, please get it sorted.
