Westbourne News News from Westbourne, Branksome & West Cliff

New Co-Op Planned for Westbourne The vacant pub and Centre Stage building on Queens Road is to be converted into a new convenience store by Co-operative Group Food Ltd. A Supply of Alcohol application has been made to the council in the name of the proposed Co-op store. The venue was previously the Pig and Whistle Boarded Up pub and for a short time even the cabaret venue Rubyz Lounge. Since September last year the building has been boarded up. There is a large pay and display car park adjacent and an existing convenience store opposite. Centre Stage closing as a live music venue was a sad loss for Westbourne as An existing Co-Op groups including the Bournemouth Folk Club, Chicken Soup Choir and jazz club have relocated further afield. You can make representations to the council in writing by the 25th January to the Planning & Licensing Authority at Bournemouth Town Hall.

New Food Waste Bin Collections - Q&A From March 2014, Bournemouth Council is operating a new food waste collection. To answer your questions they are arranging a Q&A with ‘Waste Awareness Officers’ at Westbourne Library on the 13th February from 2pm 5pm. They can answer all your questions and queries about the service as well as any other waste and recycling related queries you may have. Food waste collections will be for all houses with the standard Big Bin, Little Bin arrangement. Flats with larger shared use bins are being asked to opt in to receive food waste collections. The new service will allow residents to recycle all cooked and uncooked food waste which, once collected, will be composted locally into a nutrient rich soil improver and the gases produced from the process will be used to generate electricity.

The Ever Changing Face of the Westbourne High Street We are sad to report the recent closure of Blockbuster and Broadview Blinds.

The high street is always changing and we’d like to welcome new businesses opened recently including Mlinko Hair and Beauty (see page 14) and JoJo Maman Bébé, both on Poole Road.

Getting a good quality coffee is now even easier in Westbourne - and you can get your caffeine fix while supporting a long standing, independent local business. After a refit of the store, Pâtisserie Angélique on Poole Road is now sporting a great looking coffee bar specialising in quality take-away drinks. For those not in a rush, seating has been extended to a covered and heated sun terrace at the rear for when you fancy a more leisurely latte. Complete with their own ‘Pâtisserie Angélique’ branded cups and expert barista training for all their staff, the popular Westbourne eatery is charging in to 2014. From a gloriously smooth espresso shot to a tasty hazelnut latte they have full selection of coffee options.

Slimming World in Westbourne Barbara Edwards explains what’s on offer

It definitely is that time of year isn`t it? Yes, 2014 is the year for change BUT how many years in the past has this lasted just a few weeks! Would you like to make this year different? Would you like to make “life changes” this year instead of looking for a “weight loss quick fix” that works for a while and then old habits creep back in? You can hear from these first few lines that I myself have been there many a time before but I have now successfully lost 3 stone with Slimming World and just have a little more to go to be exactly at my dream weight. I have never done anything before that gives you such freedom whilst losing weight. Previous to Slimming World I have been on ‘diets’ that have lost the weight short term. I`ve got bored of being so restricted so, I`ve stopped, the old habits have come back in and I have put the weight back on with a few extra pounds as well. This is why Slimming World works, it`s not a diet but a revolutionary ‘Eating Plan’ that changes your mind set towards food forever. With Slimming World you base your daily consumption of food around FREE foods, FREE foods are foods you can eat without weighing, counting or measuring – no restrictions at all. Now, you may be saying to yourself “that’ll be apples, oranges, pears etc” and yes, you would be right BUT joining them as FREE foods are mouth-watering items such as pasta (yes, pasta!), rice meat, fish and potatoes to name just a few. With our Westbourne groups you will walk into a positive, friendly environment where you will meet a whole room full of like-minded individuals who all want to help each other to reach their goals. In 2013 these groups alone lost a staggering...

555 stone, the average weight of 3 small hatch back cars! What a success story! If you want 2014 to be your ‘Weight Loss Year’ come and join us on Wednesday’s at West Cliff Baptist Church, opposite the Bingo Hall in Westbourne, times opposite.

Slimming World Join a warm and friendly group today… Join a warm and friendly group today…

Chines Form Part of New Bournemouth Seaf Bournemouth seafront’s world-class vision revealed

Alum, Middle and Durley Chines are part of Bournemouth’s most important asset, the seafront. Over 5 million people visit each year. Much of the seafront infrastructure is over 50 years old and not up to international standards found at other beach resorts. As well as providing enhanced facilities for locals to enjoy, the new strategy will help to secure and grow the tourism sector, which currently employs over 11,000 people. The council has revealed comprehensive and wide ranging plans to make our seafront world class. There are plans for changes from Alum Chine to Hengistbury Head and the full set of plans can be found on the website. We’ve had a look at the documents

Recommended Reading for 2014 from Kirsty Robinson at The Westbourne Bookshop

Welcome to the January 2014 Book Review and a big Happy New Year to everyone. I hope you all had a fun-filled festive season and are now ready for 2014. We would all like to say a huge thank you for the cards and kind gifts of chocolates and biscuits that you brought in to us at Christmas. So generous and thoughtful of you, and keeps us going when we’re too busy to stop for lunch! This month I thought I’d recommend some paperbacks to curl up with on a cold winter’s night and some suggestions for books that you may not have received at Christmas, but may wish to purchase with your Book Tokens. Max Hastings – Catastrophe £25 RRP £30 A thoroughly researched modern account of the calamity that befell Europe in 1914 as the continent shifted from the glamour of the Edwardian era to the tragedy of total war.

Save Nelson Mandela – Long Walk to Freedom £5 Hbk £25, pbk £14.99 The riveting memoirs of the outstanding moral and political leader of our time, A Long Walk to Freedom brilliantly re-creates the drama of the experiences that helped shape Nelson Mandela's destiny. Emotive, compelling and uplifting, it is the exhilarating story of an epic life; a story of hardship, resilience and ultimate triumph told with the clarity and eloquence of a born leader. Liz Pichon – Tom Gates, various titles for children 8-11 If you haven’t started the adventures of Tom Gates, now may be just the time. Tom Gates is a master of excuses, expert doodler, comic story writer extraordinaire, and the bane of his grumpy teacher Mr Fullerman’s life. Will Tom ever manage to get his homework in on time, avoid the rage of his teacher, and impress Amy Porter, who sits next to him? Warning! Do not attempt to read this in public. You will snigger loudly!

New Fiction Clive Cussler – The Tombs £7.99 The fourth Fargo adventure has the discovery of the tomb of Attila the Hun at its core. Jonathan Holt – The Abomination £7.99 In Venice, a city of secrets and lies, two women search for a killer... Captain Katerina Tapo is the youngest female officer of the Venice carabinieri. Lieutenant Holly Boland of the US Army spent her childhood in Italy. Now, she finds herself conscripted by the intelligence forces to investigate the murder of a female activist. A woman whose body has also been given to the sea... Kate Atkinson – Life after Life £7.99 (due 30th Jan) The hypnotic time-switching tale of the life and many deaths of Ursula, born in 1910, who may or may not have lived through to the end of the second world war. Jo Baker – Longbourn £7.99 'If Elizabeth Bennet had the washing of her own petticoats,' Sarah thought, 'she would be more careful not to tramp through muddy fields.' It is wash-day for the housemaids at Longbourn House, and Sarah's hands are chapped and raw. Domestic life below stairs, ruled with a tender heart and an iron will by Mrs Hill the housekeeper, is about to be disturbed by the arrival of a new footman, bearing secrets and the scent of the sea. Peter James – Dead Letter Drop £7.99 Dead Letter Drop is Peter James' first ever novel, originally published in 1981. Max Flynn, undercover agent, has the unenviable job of spying on his own side. When to kill, who to kill, whether to kill are all questions which have to be answered at great speed if he wants to stay alive. But why does an innocuous airline ticket No.14B matter so much? Who has gone to the trouble of committing suicide? And could Flynn's beautiful companion be a spy? The hazy, murky world of counter espionage leaves no room for errors of judgement and Flynn knows he’s finished if he makes one false move. Joanna Hickson – Tudor Bride £7.99 Perfect for fans of Philippa Gregory, this is the thrilling story of Catherine de Valois, the French princess who became an English queen. Catherine believes herself invincible as she gives birth to an heir, then tragically King Henry is struck down by fever back in France and a weeping dowager queen follows his coffin back to England, comforted by the music of the King’s Harper, Owen Tudor. Catherine and Owen Tudor become lovers, but their love cannot remain a secret forever, and when a grab for power is made by Gloucester, Catherine, and those dearest to her, face mortal danger.

Westbourne’s Music Scene Aaron Gregory’s Local Music Guide

About Aaron Gregory We’re delighted to have Aaron Gregory on board writing our regular local music scene column. Aaron is a Bournemouth based singer songwriter who has been described by Rock Regeneration as a pillar of the local music scene. Photo by Grant David Read © 2013

As the New Year hangover is wearing off attentions are turn to a fun filled and prosperous 2014. And prosperous and fun filled it promises to be in regards to exciting developments on the local music scene of Bournemouth in the coming months. In Westbourne some exciting gigs have been lined up to start off the New Year. At the Westbourne Pub itself, live music takes place every Friday and Saturday night. The Westbourne personally hand pick bands for your enjoyment focusing on getting punters up and dancing to covers of songs you know with the finest tribute acts. It is definitely worth popping in and checking out what’s on. Just 10 minutes walk from Westbourne is The Winchester. The Winchester has fantastic events going on and it has rightly earned itself the reputation of one of Bournemouth’s premier live venues. In the past great acts such as Benjamin Francis Leftwich, John Cooper Clarke, Ghostpoet, Pretty Visitors, Yoofs and Will and the People have graced the stage so it is definitely worth checking out what is going on. A highlight for techno fans on February 7th is techno legend Eat Static. The Winchester is delighted with this booking as Eat Static is a true pioneer of the genre has been rocking psychedelic electronic beats since 1988. This truly is going to be a big party not to miss. Eat Static


In the heart of Westbourne is Rock Restaurant. Rock is a fantastic eatery and is worth booking a table anyway just for the fresh pastas they have on offer, they are head spinningly delicious. Not only are they a good eatery though, they also regularly book bands and acoustic acts to wow their diners. It is a great night with top music and food, definitely worth trying. Another great gig not far out of Westbourne is at Sixty Million Postcards on February 15th as Cloud Control come to town. Cloud Control Cloud Control play sparse, delicate, indie pop and will be a great watch for anyone who is a fan of Foals or Bombay Bicycle Club. National media are raving about them at the moment so they are definitely worth a watch.

Thanks to everyone who has enjoyed my columns so far, I hope that I have pointed you in the direction of some excellent live music. The Winchester 39 Poole Hill, BH2 5PW 01202 557937
