Seeds of success.

  • Mark and Hugh muse over the marvels of Cetaceans in the Solent

    Momentous moonlit meeting with Cetaceans Mark and Hugh go to sea, find dolphins in the Solent and reflect on related subjects This week Mark and Hugh go to sea, have an amazing close encounter with dolphins and consider some of the ramifications for us all. (For those like me who have to look up the exact meaning of the word cetacean here you go from Wikipedia: "Cetaceans are aquatic mammals constituting the infraorder Cetacea. There are around 89 living species, which are divided into two parvorders. The first is the Odontoceti, the toothed whales, which consist of around 70 species, including the dolphin, porpoise, beluga whale, narwhal, sperm whale, and beaked whale.") A rare moonlit glimpse into the undersea world.

Whilst Covid continues to dominate health news and we hear that "normal" examinations and procedures have been missed with a potential knock effect on future cancer deaths, the work of the Macmillan nurses seems set to become even more vital. We've been sent some heart warming reports accompanied by lovely photos so we thought

  • Nursing excellence provides peace of mind at Colten Care homes

    Peace of mind thanks to nursing excellence  With all homes providing nursing care, relatives and staff highlight Colten Care's nursing excellence Among the factors that set Colten Care’s 21 homes apart is that all are registered for nursing care and all their nurses benefit from group-wide clinical support.

Professional nursing expertise has given added reassurance to residents and their families during Covid, as Colten Care relatives and staff explain in the article below. Jenny Cottrell says she feels ‘very lucky and reassured’ that her mother Rosemary lives at the Sturminster Newton home, Newstone House, one of seven Colten

  • LYMINGTON:

    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.
