The ‘Roar on the Shore’ world record attempt will not only be celebrating the launch of this year’s More Bus Bournemouth Air Festival but will also be a fundraising event for Help for Heroes.

Fundraising is the key to Roar on the Shore and organisers are encouraging everyone to get involved and participate – event costs will be covered by sponsorship and fundraising

Mark Elliott, Director of Operations at Help for Heroes said; “This a great event and I speak on behalf of everyone at Help for Heroes when I say how excited and truly

delighted we were to be approached, recognised and asked to participate. We are a charity doing what we can for our heroes and your generosity will help stage Roar on the Shore and give us the opportunity to do more where it is really needed.” ‘Roar on the Shore’ is an idea that originated from the Air Festival Marketing and Content group members who work to promote and build the line-up of the summers most anticipated event; members are made up of, amongst others, local business people including Gina Mackin and Tim Sanders. Presenting at the launch Tim Sanders said; “This is a superb event for us all to support as a community and as a wider region. We are all incredibly proud of last year’s Air Festival and this is our chance to really put us, our town and our generosity on the map. The results on the 20th will be incredible and I can’t wait to hear the roar!” Added Gina Mackin; “We are confident Roar on the Shore will have national attention and

regional interest…a visual extravaganza like no other backed, from the beginning, by the people and businesses of Bournemouth!” Fundraising has already started with generous donations from The Oceanarium and Talbot Heath School who are busy raising money and getting behind this incredible South Coast event. Roar on the Shore will follow a firework display launched from a barge between Bournemouth and Boscombe Piers at 9.30pm on Thursday 20th August. This superb World Record attempt is part of the amazing line up of evening ‘Night Air’ entertainment in Bournemouth Lower Gardens from 6pm Thursday-Saturday during the More Bus Bournemouth Air Festival.

Little Chefs Cook Dorset Young Up Organic Feast Enterprise Finals FORGET celebrity chefs children at Queens Park Infants School in Bournemouth turned culinary geniuses to serve a specially prepared lunch for parents and teachers. The Year 2 pupils have spent time this year sowing, growing and harvesting organic vegetables on the school’s allotment. They prepared the seasonal vegetable treat, including spinach and runner beans, along with a cottage pie under the guidance of chef Sarah Howard.

Head teacher Pat Whitehead says the allotment work and family lunch gives the pupils a better understanding of healthy eating, food preparation and good table manners. She added: “The children have great respect for the food they grow themselves and eat. There is very little left over.” Jessica DavisFinn, Jade Barber, Ben BickfordSmith (behind), Adam Weir and Connor Hill

Four Year 10 students from Portchester School celebrate as their businesses win the ‘Best Financial Management’ and ‘Best Trade Stand’ at the Young Enterprise Company finals. Dylan Harris, Chris Allbrow, Jordan Carter (ECLIPSE) and Jazz Gritt (Dream Teens) all reached the finals of the Young Enterprise programme, which has been running since last September. Students attended regular meetings at JP Morgan and various sales events at

weekends to develop the winning businesses. The winning teams: ECLIPSE, which designed and produced language prompt cards, won ‘Best Financial Management’. Dream Teens, who designed post cards and calendars, won ‘Best Trade Stand’. Team members were presented with certificates and trophies for their hard work and creativity.

BEET Beat The Best A BOURNEMOUTH language school has been voted one of Europe’s top five schools, in the industry equivalent of the Oscars. Bosses at BEET Language Centre say they are thrilled with the international accolade because the votes were cast by fellow professionals worldwide. The school in Nortoft Road beat more than 900 accredited language schools and many


more non-accredited ones across Europe in the awards, run by the Language Travel Magazine. Votes are cast by thousands of people in the TEFL business from around the world, including agents and language consultants, choosing the schools that offer the best all round service to English language learners. “This award means a lot to us because it is a pan-global

recognition,” said Clive Barrow, managing director at BEET. “Those permitted to vote are established professionals, and they know the schools inside out, from personal visits, student feedback and working with them on a daily basis.”

“They have nothing to gain by voting for us so we really value the impartiality and honesty of their verdict.” The English language industry annually brings more than £140m to the Bournemouth economy.

AquaCare staff take to the water for Julia’s House STAFF at a Christchurch company have raised enough money to keep the Julia’s House children’s hospice in Dorset open for a morning. Appropriately a 16-strong team from AquaCare took to the water in a dragon boat race at Sherborne Castle’s country fair. They raised more than £500 after taking part in three races on the castle lake, the third against a team from Naomi House, the Hampshire children’s hospice. The ‘AquaCare Angels’ romped home, knocking 15 seconds off their previous best time. The money raised by the team will be donated to Julia’s House, AquaCare’s nominated

charity. Dawn Witt, AquaCare’s M arket in g M ana g er a nd a member of team, said: “Our engineers and customer service staff really rose to the occasion and had a great day out as well as raising muchneeded funds for Julia’s House. “The best news is that our efforts mean that we’ve covered the cost of a morning’s care for up to ten children at the Julia’s House hospice.” Based at Knapp Mill, AquaCare is the property services and maintenance business of Bournemouth & West Hampshire Water. Founded in 1997, the

company specialises in providing plumbing, heating, drainage, waster supply pipe repairs, hom e em ergen c y insurance and water hygiene services. It operates across Dorset and

West Hampshire using its own team of qualified plumbers, Gas Safe Register heating engineers and Legionella technicians. The company employs 77 staff and has a £4.5 million annual turnover. Making a splash: AquaCare staff, with Diane Pestell of Julia’s House acting as drummer

hese are the words of Albert Einstein, the greatest physicist of recent times. L. Ron Hubbard's discoveries in the field of the mind prove that Einstein was right. In his book, Dianetics: The Power Of The Mind Over The Body, L. Ron Hubbard takes a gigantic step towards expanding the power of the mind. He demonstrates how anyone can use his discoveries and rid themselves of the barriers that have prevented

them from using their mental potential fully. Dianetics has been shown to lower the rate of illness and mental pain, raise intelligence and bring about a happier, more confident state of mind. More and more people, including artists, MDs, managers and workers use Dianetics technology, and the many written reports of their successes are the best proof for the efficiency of the book.

the audience a brief talk at the end to hi light the work the fo u n d at i o n do e s f o r t h e community.

Green-fingered pupils receive a helping hand GREEN-FINGERED pupils at a Bournemouth school have received a helping hand from Bournemouth & West Hampshire Water (BWHW). The company has donated two water butts to St Thomas Garnet’s School which will be used to teach pupils the importance of recycling water to grow plants. The school, in Parkwood Road, Boscombe, has two gardening clubs, including a new one for kindergarten pupils aged three to five. Sam Tattum, kindergarten manager, said: “The water butts

will come in very useful with helping our children learn about th e imp ort an c e of w ater i n growing flowers and vegetables. “We’re very grateful to Bournemouth & West Hampshire Water for their generous donation.” Tony Cooke, BWHW’s Managing Director, said: “Spreading the 'use water wisely' message can't start at a young enough age. These youngsters are our future customers and the lessons le arn e d n o w will h ope fully become second nature to them in adulthood."

BWHW’s Greg Pienaar presents the water butts to pupils at St. Thomas Garnet’s School.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream - Review Winton Arts & Media College 30 June 2009 The outdoor setting for this classic Shakespeare play was a brave move on the part of the director (Mr Coshan), and following the torrential monsoon-like downpours of the afternoon, it was looking very dicey indeed. But the King of the Fairies was smiling down on Winton that day and the sun came out and shone brightly on the Athenian Forest (cunningly disguised as a sweetly scented lime tree on the College playing fields). When the idea for this production was first voiced, Mr Coshan suggested that they would need to get girls involved, while the talented Dominic Keeley (Titania) just smiled and said “We can play girls!” And boy was he right. The part seemed to be made for him and he carried it off with style and flair, and a pout that Paris Hilton would be proud of. Jordan Calvert gave a faultless performance as Demetrius, and Zoot Hill Vallier, another of the commendable cast of mixed up lovers, played a suave and powerful Lysander. The course of true love was jumbled by the joyfully meddlesome Puck (Christian


Howard) who gave an outstanding performance that was skittish and playful, and what a stage exit! Commendation must also go to Sam Jenkinson (Oberon) who gallantly took on his part with just 12 days to go. A solitary robin began singing in the tree and the sun was setting on the assembled picnicking audience, who were kept entertained by the wild overacting of the players (particularly Jay Collins “The Wall”) of the play within a play “Pyramus and Thisbe”. The Ath enia n craft sm en w er e superbly led by Scott McGarrick who gave a powerful rendition of Bottom, including a deservedly indulgent and entertaining soliloquy. It was a strange, beautifully entertaining, humorous and touching play w hich was supremely colourful thanks to Mrs Lambert’s imaginative use of ‘Ziggyesque’ costumes. Well done to all the cast and staff who made this dream a reality. Angela Fendley Winton Arts & Media College students take on A Midsummer Night’s Dream
