Whether recovering from a spell in hospital, hoping for companionship and warmth over the winter months, or simply wanting to give your career (and yourself) a break, a short stay in one of Colten Care's homes could be just…

And some of these restaurants and pubs are also in brilliant locations either with their own grounds to explore…

In the build up to Christmas and for the next in our series of "Life Matters" articles, Paula Shea from Lester Aldridge proposes how giving cash as Christmas Presents could be a sensible tax planning option as well as a much appreciated gift which also saves on shopping time - especially if you're not feeling up to joining in the fray this year. Beautifully wrapped cash can even look very special too!
Life Matters for Lymington, with Paula from Lester Aldridge

This time of year, when we tend to spend more than normal, is a great opportunity to boost the income of our local shops as well. In any case who wants to spend ages queuing at city centre carparks and wading through the frenzied crowds, only to find nothing of interest in the so-called 'offers'?
As for online, well for certain things yes…

Christmas presents paid in cash to employees will always be taxable along with other earnings. The same treatment also extends to vouchers that can be spent in either one or a number of different shops of the employee's choice. The employee has to pay…
Luckily we live in an area with many independent businesses and shops and it is easy to find local gifts - especially if you think out of the box a little.
Listed below are 10 good reasons…
On the 1st December 2018 Ear Clinic will hold the first Super Saturday! event. This is the first of an ongoing campaign, supporting local pensioners with reduced prices whilst also raising money for local and national charities.
The events will run under the brand of Super Saturday! and the first beneficiary is Oakhaven Hospice Trust.
Ear Clinic will donate £1 to Oakhaven (up to £1000) for each Like they get on the Ear Clinic Facebook page or at the bottom of the Ear Clinic website Home Page in support of Super Saturday! Every Like counts, so if you do both Oakhaven will get £2.
It's a triple win!
WIN! - Pensioners pay just £39 for microsuction earwax removal
WIN! - Oakhaven benefits from up to £1000
WIN! - The hard working senior team at Ear Clinic Lymington, will work for a full day pro bono (without pay) AND donate takings to charity!
Call between 10am and 3pm or walk-in on the ground floor. Monday to Friday. Early and late appointments
available for 9 - 5 workers. Ear Clinic is a short walk off the high street through the Angel Courtyard. We’re opposite the entrance to the short
stay car park on Cannon Street, next to Solent Dental.
On Saturday the 1st December, Ear Clinic is holding a special charity event called Super Saturday! The region’s top private clinic for aural care
is reducing its already low price of £49, down to £39 for pensioners. So if you’re a pensioner, you can book and pay just £39 to receive all the
benefits of Ear Clinic’s first-class facilities and services.
Ear Clinic will run a series of Super Saturdays! to benefit pensioners and donate to a different charity from each event. Ear Clinic’s Registered
Nurses will be working pro bono (without pay) for the day and will donate the entire day’s takings to charity.
Yes! If you’re not a pensioner but would like to support Oakhaven Hospice, you can still book and pay the year round low price of £49.
However, please also print out the voucher below claim £5 off.
On the 1st December, your payment will be donated to Oakhaven Hospice, so you’re benefitting people in their hour of need. If you can’t attend on the day the voucher is valid until the end of January 2019.
Many locals will know of Oakhaven’s Hospice, either through their own family or a friend’s. We chose Oakhaven as the first Super Saturday! beneficiary because of the number of local families they benefit. People like Cynthia Melsom, who asked us if we could do something for Oakhaven in memory of her partner Arthur Strudwick.
Mrs Melsom said: "Like many families we have suffered our losses. The staff and volunteers at Oakhaven were a blessing to Arthur and me, both as a couple and individually. It was our personal experience of the work at Oakhaven that, after Arthur's passing, inspired me to do something for the Trust by way of
thanks. Arthur always recalled that old saying 'you can't choose your family, but you can your friends'. The Hospice team at Oakhaven were certainly a friend to us in our hour of need."
Mrs Melsom contacted us after reading about our ethos and charitable partnerships. She asked if we would be willing to help staff at The Oakhaven Trust. Charity No: 900215. This request has resulted in a no charge price concession for all paid Oakhaven staff attending Ear Clinic. Ear Clinic was funded as part of a charitable partnership. We support select public sector groups, other national and charitable organisations through all ongoing partnership projects. We will also support individuals like Mrs Melsom. We’re delighted that pensioners will benefit from Ear Clinic events.
Kevin Howlett, Director, said "This event marks the beginning of a charitable project with particular regard for pensioners who typically receive £140 per week income. Pensioners who wear hearing aids are greatly affected as earwax is compacted into the ear canal when inserting the aid(s). Through Super Saturday! events, lowering the price to £39 will certainly be a welcome saving, especially near to Christmas with rising heating bills."
