  • International Nurses Day at Lymington New Forest Hospital

    Florence and her New Forest legacy To commemorate International Nurses Day in Lymington, PHL and New Forest Aromatics thank the nurses and medical team at the Urgent Treatment Centre in Lymington Hospital  There's a special connection between International Nurses Day on 12 May, the founder of modern nursing Florence Nightingale whose birthday was chosen for this annual celebration, and the New Forest. Which is that Florence Nightingale is buried just north east of the New Forest in the village of East Wellow. International Nurses Day is an annual day of celebration for nurses around the world. And it's especially poignant after this last year, in which nurses have been so enormously impacted by the scale and intensity of the COVID

  • Add three minutes to your journey time in the New Forest

    Driving in the New Forest: kill your speed - not an animal  #add3minutes - Add three minutes to your journey time on New Forest roads  As the newborn foals start to appear again it’s a timely reminder to slow down on our New Forest roads. There are still far too many people driving at unsafe speeds for the conditions – especially the condition of darkness combined with dampness and poor visibility. Right now though we need to be aware at all times of day and night.  The brand new 2021 foals are just beginning to appear, as captured here by local photographer Graham Wiffen.  Foals are skittish, unpredictable and desperately delicate, it is important to slow down to practically a standstill if they're close to the roadside.

  • LYMINGTON:

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.
