  • Station Financial and the New Normal in the New Forest

    Welcome to the "New Normal" at Station Financial  New Forest independent financial advisers Station Financial, open and ready to welcome you, consider the evolution of language  It’s a funny thing, language, as it’s always evolving, and every nation, culture, sub-culture and industry has its own.

Terms such as “gross domestic product”, “market shares”, “net worth” and “portfolio management” are commonplace for those who work with money, a whole category of language designed and used by financial experts.

The same can be said of words found in the urban dictionary - an

  • Eat out to help out in Lymington and the New Forest

    Enjoy deliciously discounted dining in the New Forest  How to make the most of "Eat Out to Help Out" The Government's "Eat out to help out" scheme is being introduced to help get struggling cafes, restaurants and pubs back on their feet. The scheme is aimed at helping businesses who were closed due to the coronavirus crisis by encouraging customers to dine in, with establishments able to claim the money back from the government. Hospitality is one of the UK's biggest employers and has been hit especially hard by the lockdown measures. In April, 80% of venues closed, and 1.4 million hospitality workers have been placed on furlough at some point since then. Some venues have been able to provide a takeaway

  • Lymington and Pennington Town Mayor Message 31 July

    The Mayor's Message is back following popular request! Message from the Town Mayor of Lymington and Pennington  31 July 2020 Don't forget to get your entries in today for the Flower Festival! How quickly a month passes, I can hardly believe that we are now at the end of July – the school holidays have officially started and visitors are flocking to the New Forest and our lovely town. It is so very regrettable that most of the campsites have not been re-opened, but great that places like New Park have extended their facilities to allow for more camping.  As you will probably know, wild camping has become quite a problem in the Forest with the commensurate problems of litter, fires

  • Two weeks free respite in a New Forest Colten Care home

    Have a ball this summer, at Colten Care's expense! Two weeks respite, completely free, in a New Forest Colten Care home* Caring for a loved one can be demanding and stressful, both emotionally and physically. We all deserve an occasional break from our responsibilities – and that’s where a respite stay in a beautiful, welcoming care home comes in. You may well associate care homes with long-term care, but there are many reasons why shorter stays are attractive as well.People on discharge from hospital often require additional care to start their recuperation. Meanwhile some individuals or families want to try out a care home before making a longer-term commitment to move in permenantly.A respite stay can be a rejuvenating breather that

    Lymington is a pretty Georgian market town in the south of the New Forest. The town's sheltered position on the western bank of the beautiful Lymington river has made it an important settlement since the Iron Age. For many years Lymingtonians have made their living from the sea or the river - as boatbuilders, fishermen, sailors and in past centuries as salt workers and even smugglers! Today Lymington is an internationally famous yachting centre with a population of almost 17,500.


    It’s not surprising that Lymington is one of the “Best UK Coastal Towns in Which to Live”. Combined with accessible road and rail links north to London, west to Bournemouth and east to Southampton and beyond, as well as the car ferry service to Yarmouth, Isle of Wight, the town combines practicality with pleasure; the perfect work-life balance. There are many excellent schools and a wealth of local sports, clubs and leisure activities.
