Well done Weymouth. It's one of the best coastal towns in Britain, according to a survey by retirement home developer McCarthy Stone. It came second, with its beaches and Esplanade placing it above St Ives and Whitby. And remember, Weymouth was considered to have the best beach in 2017 by Trip Adviser. This is another well-deserved accolade and pours cold water on the few siren voices that are permanently criticising the resort. I was due to take Grant Bailey out to lunch today, but he sadly had to go to Ukraine. If you recall, Grant, who lives on Portland, was kidnapped by the Taliban in Afghanistan, but was released a short while ago. Instead, I headed to the Weymouth Information Centre at 98 St Mary Street, where I met three of the organisers of this new initiative. It's a wonderful idea, where three organisations have formed a coalition, signposting people to the many organisations in the resort and on Portland who can help them. The three were Jon Sloper, from Help & Kindness, Lynita Harris, from Volunteering Dorset, and Chris Wilson, from the Weymouth Area Development Trust. All three do sterling work already but have now come together to form a more co-ordinated approach for their clients. They've set up shop in St Mary Street and already clients are pouring in. It's a clever idea and I wish them well. I spent a most informative 90 minutes with them, going through the various issues they help with and was most impressed by what I heard.
