Westbourne News

from in and around Westbourne

Keep Our Street Sweep! One of the positive aspects that makes Westbourne such an enjoyable place to live and work is the cleanliness and well maintained look of the streets & pavements. John is the local road sweep and has been collecting rubbish and brushing away leaves across Westbourne for the past couple of months. However, we are very close to losing John’s services to Bournemouth town centre in March. We’re all very keen to try and keep John in his current capacity, or for a reduced time each day, so that we don’t lose this important local resource. Let the council know we don’t want to lose him, email enquiries@bournemouth.gov.uk New Businesses Flock to Westbourne Despite all the media coverage of the tough economic climate we are faced with, it is encouraging to see new businesses opening in the Westbourne area. Although there are still a small number of empty shop units, the latest additions to Westbourne offer a positive outlook for the future of the area. We are pleased to welcome the following businesses that have opened in recent months, and others that are due to open soon: Mabel & Jacks - 64 Poole Road - underwear, nightwear and hosiery Cinderella - 14 Westbourne Arcade - hand crafted shoes and bags Eirens of London - 71 Seamoor Road - top name designer clothes Charlwood IFA - 35 Seamoor Road - financial advice Sweet Pea & Dragonflies - 20 Westbourne Arcade - designer childrens wear Stanwells - 23 Westbourne Arcade - independent designer boutique The Frock - 24 Seamoor Road - reconditioned dresses and formal wear


Thanks to everyone who completed last month’s survey, we are currently collating the results and they will be published next month.

Dance Yourself Fit! Bootreat

We spoke to Kathie and Terry from Bootreat about the fitness craze that is sweeping the country, Zumba. “Zumba is a Latin-based dance aerobic class that uses a mixture of international music and easy to follow moves to create an exciting and effective workout”, explained Kathie. “We dance along to simplified versions of merengue, salsa, cumbia, reggaeton, flamenco, mambo, tango, samba and many more. You do not need a dance partner, you do not need to be a professional dancer, you just turn up and get an effective and exhilarating workout. You will burn 500 – 600 calories per hour!” Bootreat are now offering fitness retreat days at the Queens Hotel in Bournemouth for just £45.00 – the day includes: a Zumba class, a healthy snack and coffee, use of the Spa and a beauty treatment, visit the website to find out more; www.bootreat.co.uk. If you are interested in attending a regular Zumba class, Kathie will be starting a class at The Wessex Hotel Leisure Club on Friday 18th February at 6pm
