Kylie Keating, Founder: Intuitive Meals Ltd.

I got into plant-based food after I had my first child. So over four years ago. But I’ve never really eaten meat or much dairy. All the meals I make are the same meals I make for my family, so I thought I’d start to make a bit extra...

5 Local MMA and Boxing Gyms Worth Joining in 2021

The past year, we've seen our habits and activities forcibly changed by the new taboo C-word. One aspect of our lives we've all had to change is the way we exercise, work out and compete. Following the government’s recent unveiling of the “Roadmap to Recovery”, it's now known that gyms should reopen from 12th April. So, for those of you that have spent the last 12 months binge-watching Netflix's Cobra Kai, or re-watching the classic Never Back Down trilogy, we may have the perfect solution for a return to normality. We look ahead to the five of the best MMA and boxing gyms that should re-open in the near future...

Mace Ruegg Set For Next Bout in Bolton

Bournemouth boxer Mace Ruegg hasn't let COVID-19 get in his way. Even with the third national lockdown, he and his team have still been hard at work. Training and constant COVID-testing, all to get him to his next fight. Last time HQB spoke to Mace, he had just returned from Bilbao, victorious over Venezuelan Sandro Hernandez. This next fixture was also meant to be in Spain, but instead has settled for English soil, in Bolton...

Steve Hawker, Creator: Big Bear Photography

Taking advantage of the eye-catching Bournemouth beaches, Steve's work stems from his passion for nature, the outdoors, and its artistic interpretation. "I've always lived by the sea, and I love outdoors. If I'm on a walk, I like to see what's about in nature or wildlife," Steve explained. "I don't use a camera to take photos. Most people are quite surprised that I use only my phone. I have my phone all the time, and it's easy to get a quick snap..."

Brandon Moss, Photographer

Since starting my business, I have taken most of my inspiration from modern lifestyle, and contemporary art and music. This led me to specialise mainly in portrait photography. This was the initial interest to start a business. Turning a part time hobby into a full time job.

Cliff Towler, Artist / Founder: Creative Studios

The Poole-born artist never intended to choose a creative vocation. In his teenage years he worked an apprenticeship in a local silk screen printer shop. “I enjoyed it there, and I would have continued learning the skills. But unfortunately the business closed down and I had to reconsider my career,” he said. He chose to study illustration, life drawing and art history at the Arts University Bournemouth. “In the '70s, it was a very vibrant way to earn money. I could be creative and work on a variety of commercial projects. Being creative is not enough. You have to think how to earn a living,” Cliff said.
