These seem to be popping up all over Dawlish and along the cliff path.

What are these 001

The Teignmouth fish have been there for the last couple of years. It's the EA spraying next to drains to highlight the fact that pouring fat down drains ends up polluting our seas.

Like so many persons I concern myself regarding the forthcoming referendum in June. For myself I am hoping for a Brexit result. We hear from the remain camp the dangers of leaving the EU, from the large corporations, Richard Branson, President Obama, etc. Please take a look at the facebook page of Tony Everest  and consider the views of the European Presidents of Europe's three main institutions who, according to the report by Reuters, have a very bleak view of the future of the European Union, It makes interesting reading and hopefully will help shape your views when it comes to voting day! PS - I would have posted the article on this page but cannot see how to do this

Matt, I have just started  a new discussion thread entitled 'Leave or Remain?' Hope this will provide a good forum link on this vital issue.

Could it be an Ordnance Survey marker?

Just a thought.

I'm not convinced it is a 'lard alert' as Morty suggests above (although tipping fat down drains is a particularly harmful thng to do)... perhaps they are markers for the extra dog-poo bins that are soon to be installed?

Let's hope so Gary and then let's hope people use them! I stopped walking along Lady's Mile a couple of years ago as the stench from the horrendous amount of dog poo along that stretch was awful. I did complain at the time so it may be a lot cleaner now but I haven't been back to find out as my stomach just can't take it!

@Gary Taylor

 

The 'lard alert' symbols are the fish ones by the drains, not the ones in Ziggy's photo.

Thank you for the clarification, Morty.

 

BTW, WRT the sort of pollution that Margaret refers to above, I met up with a chap this morning who does the rounds for TDC in Dawlish sweeping up, er, left behind waste.

 

It would seem there are a number of serial offenders out there - and their cards are being marked. His advice? Mind your step...
