Barkdale Dog Grooming and Spa is a business in Hillside, Southport, doing everything they can to support our campaign. They spread the message to their clients on the importance of caring for our beaches and bathing waters. They offer advice on beach etiquette whilst walking dogs, the importance of clearing up after dogs and bin drop points on the wonderful walks in Formby and the Southport areas. They have also been giving out lots of free poo bags to encourage people to pick up after their dogs!
Laura Wright from Barkdale said: “We heard about the LOVEmyBEACH campaign earlier this year and have been fully supportive of it ever since. In the Sefton area, we are so fortunate to have the beach and dunes on our doorstep, not only to have the benefits of the beautiful views but the amazing dog walks that run for miles through stunning settings. Every day, we walk dogs on Sefton’s beaches, much like our clients do. Our favourite thing about our coast is watching the seasonal changes that occur. No walk is ever the same. You can walk the miles of coast and see migrating birds in the winter, the endangered Natterjack toads growing through the spring, the holiday makers embracing the rare summer sunshine and the crisp first footsteps on the dunes in the winter. All on our doorstep. That’s why it’s so important that we all show our support. We each have to take responsibility for keeping our beaches clean and safe to enjoy now and in the future. Barkdale Dog Grooming and Spa encourages everyone to… LOVEmyBEACH.”
