Captain Cod: Giving Back to the Community

Much of Captain Cod's success over the past few months can be attributed to their app, launched earlier this year to facilitate deliveries and bring in more customers. The implementation of the app, according to Vicky, was recommended by a winner of Fish and Chips of the Year at Women in Fish and Chips - a new convention in Birmingham celebrating the achievements of female-owned chip shops...

Sara Pascoe, Psychologist / Writer

I had wanted to be a psychologist since I was about 11. When we cleared out my dad’s house after he died, I came across an old essay I’d written at that age. The assignment must have been to write about your professional aspirations. I banged on about how I wanted to be a psychologist, but couldn’t decide if I wanted to be a clinical psychologist and do therapy, or be a research psychologist. That cracked me up because it made me sound awfully serious for a kid, and I ended up doing both anyway. I’d always been interested in animal behaviour since I was really little, so I think psychology was a natural outgrowth of that...

Georgia Hall Wins Cambia Portland Classic for her First Major US Victory

A visibly emotional and understandably choked-up Georgia Hall wiped away tears of joy after she won the Cambia Portland Classic. A deep sigh of relief and wry giggle as she said, “I am just so happy!” in response to how she felt.

Local Man Sheds Six Stone After Falling in Love with Running

In 2014, Darren confesses to being in a dark place. His struggles and pent-up emotion led him to start kickboxing, and then onto Weaver's Boxing Gym in Ferndown. He thoroughly enjoyed the chance to get in a ring and spar, but recalls "After I completed one round, I was absolutely shattered'. His coach pulled him to one side, and told the then 15-stone Darren, "You've got to get fit. Get yourself out running"...

Coastside Crossfit: A Sporting Community Like No Other

Following two years in Sydney and the expiration of his visa, Liam Hogan returned to Bournemouth and began work managing a couple of the local gyms including Littledown. Once he had "learnt the ropes of managing and doing PT", he was able to pull it all together and in 2017, Coastside Crossfit was born on Southbourne high street. It wasn't long until membership numbers were thriving, with classes running all morning and then again in the evening...

Nathan Emmanuel (a.k.a. Nayshan), Musician & Journalist

Initially, that was through university. In my final year, I had to make either a presentation or a mini documentary piece. Now, me being me, living outside the box, I didn't just want to make that regular documentary-style kind of thing, and talk about my so-called financial issues during university. I wanted to make it different; I wanted to put it in a narrative form that people are more likely to connect with and engage with. Something different that catches their eye a bit more, and that's what really inspired the rapumentary style...

Matt England, Founder: Sun Rum

About five years ago a friend and I went to a gin tasting evening and we were both at the point in our careers where we were both stable but were getting a bit restless with wanting to create something for ourselves; work for ourselves. So, I dipped my toes in spirits, manufacturing and retailing with gin and I loved the idea of it. But I felt the gin category was a very saturated market and I wanted to create something unique. I looked at a lot of data in regard to trends and other styles of drink and rum kept shouting out at me...
