Dog walkers asked to be responsible this Easter

North East Lincolnshire Council is reminding dog owners that they cannot walk along the central beach from Good Friday.

Dogs are banned from the beach between Wonderland and Cleethorpes Leisure Centre from Good Friday to 30 September.

Easter weekend would normally see the beach, parks and open spaces full of people getting together to enjoy the long weekend and spring weather, but current Government guidance means that people should not be leaving their home unless it is essential or for their daily exercise.

People are allowed to exercise once a day, but they must remember to use open spaces, such as the beach and parks, responsibly and maintain social distancing at all times from those not in their household.

The council’s beach safety team is calling on everyone to be responsible this Easter weekend and not flock to the beach.

Staff will be patrolling hotspots and carrying out longer shifts.

Councillor Stewart Swinburn, portfolio holder for environment and transport, said: “We understand people want to get out the house and exercise with their dogs, but there are other places to enjoy a walk.

“Please do not use the main beach from Good Friday. Instead, you can walk between Cleethorpes Leisure Centre and the Humberston Fitties – all while keeping a safe distance.

“If you do choose to use the beach for exercise, please follow the advice from Government and maintain social distancing. Be responsible.

“The beach will still be here when all this is over, so please, I urge everyone in North East Lincolnshire to be responsible. Stay at home. Protect the NHS. Save lives.”
