    Shop, buy, care, run, bike, support local!  Round up of what's been happening and is upcoming Lymington and New Forest Friday 20 November Our Weekly What’s On e-newsletter introduction would have been just too long this week hence a blog for a change! Main theme predictably enough is: shop and do business locally which is of course our constant refrain. If we all do it, often enough, it will make a difference: it will help our local businesses pull through and save jobs, and it will mean that next year and in years to come we will still have a local economy and a thriving local community too.

  • New Forest food bank appreciates support from Colten Care

    Food banks on the front line As Christmas nears and the financial plight of many families grows, New Forest Colten Care homes are helping foodbanks to battle the surge in demand It is well known that during the first Lockdown there was a surge in demand from food banks. Now local care home provider Colten Care is joining in to help families and individuals in desperate need this winter. Colten Care is inviting donors to drop off food in collection boxes at all 21 of its homes in Hampshire, Dorset, Wiltshire and West Sussex, and its Colten House head office in Ringwood. The donations are being distributed to food banks battling to meet the never-ending growth in demand from families facing financial hardship and

  • Richard St Barbe Baker by New Forest Mark and Hugh

    Richard St Barbe Baker and the Life of Trees Mark and Hugh's local history column this week features Richard St Barbe Baker, a remarkable Hampshire man who was way ahead of his time Ed Note: It's fascinating this week thanks to Mark and Hugh to learn about Richard St Barbe Baker originally of Hampshire. His name suggests he was also related to the wonderful Ann St Barbe whose generosity led to Lymington's St Barbe Museum and Art Gallery but as Mark explains below our combined research hasn't found the evidence - if you know more please do get in touch and we'll pass any information on to St Barbe, as well!  Read on below! But before you do so, just in case you

  • New Forest local marketing on a budget - Winter 2020

    New Forest local marketing on a budget - Winter 2020 How to make the most of your marketing in difficult times So here we are then, a second national coronavirus lockdown in place, businesses and families in the midst of a very hard year. There really is no need for much of an introduction to why you need to read this article. The New Forest has over 9,000 businesses, many of whom (like us) have had absolutely NO support from the government this year. We all struggle on regardless, putting a smile on our faces and desperately trying to save money wherever we can. Often, the first thing to be chopped at times of difficulty is the marketing budget (if indeed there

  • Linden House Lymington wins annual scarecrow competition

    Scarecrows in Lockdown! Linden House Lymington win the Colten Care homes annual scarecrow competition Residents at Colten Care's 21 care homes across the south managed despite Covid restrictions and lockdown to stage a fun contest to make the best scarecrow. Handicrafts were the order of the day as carefully constructed, imaginatively designed creations came to life at homes in Dorset, Hampshire, Wiltshire and Sussex. Culinary themed Hazel Nut the Chef sees off the challenge of 20 other care homes Entries ranged from traditional countryside-type scarecrows stuffed with paper and straw to more ‘refined’ models; and by serving up a culinary-themed scarecrow ‘Hazel Nut the Chef’, residents from Lymington's specialist dementia care home Linden House were declared the winners. Judges declared her the winner

  • Tales of sun, salt and Lymington by New Forest Mark and Hugh

    Our star, our sun, our salt, our Lymington, and more! Mark and Hugh's local history column this week features the life which once sustained Lymington and continues with contemplation of some marvellous magnitudes! Our star, provider of all life on Earth. At the moment I am living in a camper van in a field on a hill with no electricity; just a solar panel on the roof and a diesel heater which is driven by the leisure battery. As you will be painfully aware, the last three weeks have been rather dreary with never ending grey skies containing seemingly limitless supplies of rain. I am volunteering at a campsite where we are building a sort of outdoor kitchen in a

  • New Forest hair care for a new lockdown by Andrew David Hair

    Looking after our locks in lockdown part two New Forest November lockdown is a good time to care for our own hair - meet Andrew David Hair for some hair care tips This lockdown time around we may not be quite so desperate to get a haircut, but with summer over and heading into winter it's definitely a good time to consider giving our hair a bit of extra care! As Andrew of Andrew David Hair in Lyndhurst pointed out to me when we spoke earlier, hair is the same as skin and nails, and just as we tend to have a different skincare routine in winter, it would be good to use this time to give our hair a bit of

    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.
