Dorset Echo: Pepe and Patricia Isisarri Pepe and Patricia Isisarri

 TRIBUTES poured in for a couple tragically killed in a car crash.

Patricia and Pepe Isisarri, from Bothenhampton, died when their car collided with two lorries on the A31 east of Bere Regis.

The couple, who celebrated their golden wedding anniversary last year, were popular in the local community and known as people ‘who couldn’t do enough for you’.

  •  COUNCIL chiefs announced they are to finally act on concerns and make changes to Weymouth’s under-fire traffic system.

Three years after the scheme was laid out in an effort by Dorset County Council to improve traffic flows and reduce congestion in the run-up to the Olympics, officers have bowed to pressure from the community and decided to make alterations.

  • THE Dorset Echo ensured that underprivileged children had a happy Christmas after launching its 14th Toy Appeal.

The 2013 appeal raised £4,454.09.

It enabled hundreds of toys to be distributed to make sure less fortunate children across Dorset had a present to open on Christmas Day.

Donations came from generous Echo readers as well as businesses.

  • CAMPAIGNERS in Weymouth called for valuable open space at Greenhill to be protected.

Weymouth and Portland Borough Council are to consult on selling off chalets and other facilities in the area, but some believe the sale will lead to development and the loss of public access. The council is proposing to sell the lease to tackle a rising repair bill and said the deal will enhance the area and bring back into use closed-up chalets.
