Jai Chandegra, Bar Manager

I have actually lived in Australia a couple of times. I lived in Brisbane for a year-and-a-half, and in Melbourne for a year. In Brisbane, I was just bartending in bars and restaurants, whereas in Melbourne, I was managing venues as well. I would say my favourite place in Melbourne was this little neighbourhood bar called Collection Bar. It was partly owned by this genius dude... I can't remember his name, but I remember this cocktail he created called The Laphroaig Project -- it's amazing...

Entertainments

Sport

Harry Shaw, Golf Coach

I played at a very high standard when I was younger. Actually, I was the county captain for numerous years. I broke into the men's first team when I was 16. Managed to travel away with them quite a bit. I played in Portugal and at a couple of events in America as well. I had a really cool and fun childhood with golf. It then became more of a hobby as I grew up and I've just got back into it this year, playing at the Clutch Tour as a professional...

Transfer Window: Who Should Bournemouth Sign This January?

For the majority of this season, Bournemouth haven’t been able to put games to bed – five of Bournemouth’s eleven wins have only been by a one-goal margin. The Cherries have also recorded the third-most draws in the league – three coming from winning positions and another three goalless. This once again highlights Bournemouth’s inability to see games out. On paper, Bournemouth’s 37 goals are impressive, but their 45 expected goals (a metric which assesses every chance, essentially answering the question of whether a player should score from certain opportunities) would suggest the Cherries have squandered multiple chances...

AFC Bournemouth: The Threat of the Transfer Window

The Cherries sit in third place of the Championship table after following their 1-0 victory over Stoke City at the weekend. These impressive performances have highlighted just how talented their squad is. It is a reveal that could put their future success at risk. The transfer window rumours have begun to swarm that many great names are being tipped for big money departures...

Business

Alejandra Carreño Garzon, Industrial Designer

I started wondering, "Who could be interested in this?" My business partner, Eduardo Ghini Cordero, joined me six months after I started working on the idea. He helped me see a different perspective, bouncing off ideas and support. Even though it's great to do things on your own, I do not have all the answers. We shared a lot of the same values and we introduced them into the platform: community, collaboration, value in knowledge, accessibility, sustainability...

Ben Ide, Founder: Ben’s Wood Den

I started doing it as it's always been a hobby. I've been doing woodwork since I was about 12. I don't have got any qualifications on paper; just taught myself over the years. I actually had my own carpentry business a few years ago now -- not called Ben's Wood Den - but I ended up stopping it because it was rather stressful. Too much work and I couldn't keep on top of it...

Studio Zipcode Offically Back to Business

The shop was still operating online during the second lockdown. But as of 4th December, you are welcome to come in-store and browse around. At a time when shopping locally has never been more important, this independent shop, which made its way into our community during the first lockdown, has come back to greet us with its funky, original, and creative signature style. Studio Zipcode started as an online platform during the first lockdown and its success led it to expand into a physical store in Winton...

Jamie Webb, Videographer & Photographer

Ever since I was 14 or 15, I wanted to set up my own media company. And I went to college to specialise in media. I made the bold decision to make an Instagram account. Just wanted to get my work out there to as many people as I possibly could. The more work I did, the more it progressed and I built a bit of a following. And then I registered it as a business - JKW Media - which was followed by my getting more clients...

Carl Draper, Founder: Waveslider Photography

I spoke to a friend who had just come out of jail. He had reformed in prison and had new direction and purpose in life instead of robbing banks. He was living in Bournemouth, which he said was amazing. I was lost at the time - at a point in life where it was clear that jail or an early death was looking most likely. There's not much to do in a broken-down pit village! I went to visit him for the weekend and never went home. The people here were different and it felt like you could be who you want to be. People were genuinely nice...!

Artisan Studio Reveals Hidden Talents

Seven years ago, art projects manager Pauline Stanley realised she needed to make a change. Her work projects had become stale, and there were no new collaborations scheduled in her planner. Thus, in November 2013, she welcomed the first students to Artisan Studio, Bournemouth and Poole's Independent Community Art Studio...

Kristina Šukelytė, Photographer

I have been interested in photography since middle school. I loved to play with my grandad’s film camera -- I found it really mesmerising how the image appears on the paper from nothing. In addition, I love looking back at old photos. We are so lucky to live in an age when we can capture special moments in photographs and keep them with us forever. Plus, I love working with people. It's very rewarding to be able to capture memories for them. I would say it's my passion...

Top 5 Photographers to Look Out For in 2021

We haven't seen the world as much as we would have liked to in 2020. The beauty of social media is that there are multiple platforms where we can share the most incredible pictures we've been able to capture, no matter what restrictions we are under. Bournemouth and its residents are no exception...

Redefining Me: Filmmakers Hope Documentary Will Inspire Others Facing Life-Changing Adversity

Ben’s story begins when he was a professional swimmer. A man with goals and aspirations to make it to the London 2012 Olympics. Until one fateful day down Sandbanks beach, where he dove into a wave and hit his head, breaking his neck, and ultimately becoming paralysed from the chest down. “The film is essentially my life in three minutes,” Ben told us. “That’s obviously very difficult to tell, so we wanted to do a specific narrative with it. It was all about the title, which is how I had to redefine myself once I had my injury..."

Council and Charities Collaborate to Support Rough Sleepers

For institutions that provide support for the homeless in the tough winter months, COVID-19 has made life much more difficult. In previous years, St. Stephen’s Church in Bournemouth and the United Reform Church in Poole have both offered support and shelter for rough sleepers. This year, however, the risk of Coronavirus spreading in communal shelters has made them unable to offer the same level of assistance. Organisations that have been able to provide support, meanwhile, are having to deal with new challenges posed by Coronavirus...
