I love Weymouth and the areas around it but the town centre requires urgent attention it’s positively drab and uninteresting

What a fantastic video showing why so many people love visiting with so many visiting for the first time

Thanks Chrissy, loved it.. always loved history at school, rather look around it than in a book like at school, thst little film was great.. hope yo visit you one day snd you can show me around can’t you… look forward to that day, don’t know who will talk laugh and cry most, but whatever it will be brilliant to look forward to..🤪🤪🤪🤪🤪💜💜

Nah, we both talk too much to stop, and of course love to laugh a lot…🦋😂🦋😂🦋
