An early morning patrol today due to Mothers Day (get out and back before the ladies in the house have got out of bed).
Part of the reason we carry out patrols is to check access routes and here at Durlston we thought we would try the new key out and work out how the bollards work.
Tom thought you unlocked them and pulled, Roger (well trained in the building of such things) unlocked, twisted and pushed down. The Station Officer just thought it was amusing that someone was pulling and the other pushing!
So another important lesson learnt and it was off to test the breakfast facilities at one of the local cafes.
