We have been working on this for quite some time... The place to get Boscombe information! A couple of months ago, Urban Evolution were successful in getting funding for a website covering all health related activities in the Boscombe area from the Healthy living project, well we have got it on-line now at www.boscalicious.co.uk, take a look, if you have anything to be included, drop us a line!

Take me! Please! here are some photos of lovely lunch from their new winter menu - yum yum!

This is a picture of my Grandmothers family in Maestre in Italy Veice , where my Grandmother (who lived with us untill last week) grew up, I thnk the baby is Grandma, which makes the pic 80 y ears old, not sure about what they are all wearing.. my great grandfather appears to be wearing all of his clothes, he has a big beard, i think someone used his picture on a wine label.. the boy on the left was taken at age 14 in the middle of the night and made to fight the Russians in Russia, though he got away somehow! scary times!

We are some considerable way through our project to plant 500 Fruit trees in Boscombe, to see the map of where they are going have a look at the website (on the side bar) if you want one email me! quick!

I went to see the extreme arts project at Kings Park School last week, I got stuck straight in first making a Christmas wreath for the front door; mine is rudolph shaped..
Then I made this Christmas decoration which I made into a badge... The extreme arts project is for children in the Boscombe area aged 7 and over. Contact Kings Park school for details.
Nestlé Children's Book Prize winner refuses Nestlé money - Sean Taylor rejects cheque

Press release 12 December 2007

See on-line version for links to supporting documents and images of Nestlé baby food marketing malpractice at:
http://www.babymilkaction.org/press/press12dec07.html

Children's author, Sean Taylor, was announced today as the Gold Medal Winner of the Nestlé Children's Book Prize, under-5 category, for his book When a Monster is Born illustrated by Nick Sharratt (Orchard Books). In an open letter Mr. Taylor indicated that he would not accept the prize money for the award which is sponsored by Nestlé. He commented:


"Being on the short list for the 2007 Nestlé Children’s book Prize is a significant honour for me, especially since so many children around the country have been involved in choosing the winning books. And I am delighted to accept the award offered to me.

"However, because of questions surrounding Nestlé’s marketing of breast-milk substitutes, I do not feel able to accept the prize money.

"This has not been a decision I have taken lightly. It has involved conversations with Baby Milk Action (a campaign group against Nestlé), Nestlé themselves, and an authoritative third party with experience in the field (who wishes to remain nameless)."

Baby Milk Action is concerned by Nestlé’s record of aggressive marketing of baby foods, which contributes to the unnecessary death and suffering of infants around the world. Companies should be abiding by international marketing standards adopted by the World Health Assembly, but Nestlé, the market leader, continues to produce systematic and widespread violations of the marekting requirements. These are defended at the most senior levels of the company.

According to Nestlé Global Public Affairs Manager, Dr. Gayle Crozier Willi, Nestlé is 'widely boycotted'.

Surf’s up!

Europe’s first artificial surf reef at Boscombe has been given the green light.
The Marine and Fisheries Agency has granted Bournemouth Borough Council a special environment licence to begin construction of the project.
Work will begin in spring 2008 and is expected to be completed in time for the October 2008 swell.
Roger Brown, Head of Leisure Services at the Council, said: “This is the fantastic news that everyone has been waiting for. The reef will put Boscombe firmly on the surfing map.”
Specialist construction material for the reef includes ecologically sound geo-textile bags from Australia and the webbing base from New Zealand.

Bournemouth Centre for Community Arts (BCCA)

BRIEFING NOTE

Subject: Bournemouth Centre for Community Arts (BCCA)

Date: 27th November 2007

This briefing note sets out the progress to date on the re-development of the BCCA site following the Cabinet decision on the 10th October

Centre for Independent Living (CIL)

Officers from Property Services, Adult & Community Support, and Community Care Services have met with Disability Wessex and Age Concern to explore their proposal for a Centre for Independent Living. It is unlikely that a CIL will be included in the re-development of the BCCA site for the following reasons:-

Their vision of a CIL does not match the Officers vision of what this facility should provide. It appeared that the premises would be the Head Quarters for Disability Wessex and Age Concern Bournemouth since there was a high-level of office accommodation and only 30% of the total space was for use by clients. Of this, some 70m2 was to be a café, which appeared to perform a joint function as meeting place and revenue earner. Officers have expressed concern about the café’s financial viability.

Lack of synergy between the proposed Council services to be run from this site, which would be for clients with mental illness, physical disabilities and learning difficulties, and those provided by Age Concern, whose clients are older people.

The proposed CIL requires circa 590m2 of floor space. It will be difficult to accommodate development of this size on the site without significantly affecting the number of affordable flats or the day centre provision.

At the meeting the opportunity for sharing facilities was discussed, e.g. CIL use outside office hours, but this was dismissed since the CIL would operate at the same times as the Day Centre.

Their financial appraisal allocates only £124,000 for start up capital costs which is to be funded by grants, loans and appeals. There are concerns that they would not be able to fund a new build centre estimated to be in the order of £1million.

Officers recognise that changes in the delivery of day care services means that a “traditional” day centre will not fully meet the needs and expectation of its clients in the future. It is envisaged that in the future the Council will be working closer with organisations such as Disability Wessex to create services that are user-led in order to promote greater choice and independence for disabled people. It is therefore important that when replacing The Boscombe Centre and Darracott Day Centre to the BCCA site that a flexible multi use building is developed, which is capable of evolving as service requirements dictate. Officers will be working on a brief for a new “Boscombe Centre for Community Living”.



Demolition of the BCCA buildings

The demolition and site clearance is estimated at approximately £170,000. It is with Members to decide whether this will be funded in the Capital Programme for 2008-2011.

Next Stages

Further consultation with the tenants of 70 Gladstone Road – November/December 2007.

Progress capital bid and risk management support application for possible demolition and site clearance works.

Housing Associations to submit their proposal for the site – February 2008.

Consultation with ward members on the proposals – February 2008 

Selection of preferred Housing Association partner – March 2008.

Concert!

Something amazing is happening on Saturday 8th December.
30 fiddlers, mainly children from the Boscombe area, are performing Xmas related music on the stage of St Mary's Community Centre, St Mary's Rd, Springbourne.
The Orchestra is directed by Jack Maguire, who teaches most of them. The repertoire includes Scottish marches and jigs, marking the approach of Hogmanay.
Nigel Kennedy is Coda Fiddle Orchestra's Honorary Patron.
Entry to the concert is free (retiring collection)
The most remarkable achievement is that half of these children have only been learning the violin for 3 months!
Please come, and forward this e mail to others who might be interested. CFO is keen to raise it's profile, particularly as we are performing in Bournemouth Gardens again next Summer.

The Xmas concert is supported by Bournemouth Arts, Bournemouth Rotary, Neighborhood Management and the Coop.

Where are the Police when you need them......?

.........right there just where you need them!
So, I came home yesterday in Julie's car, we parked outside the driveway and noticed a couple of blokes looking at something in the drive.... Julie went and said "can I help you" ad the blokes said "oh we were just seeing if these people wanted to sell these bricks.....??!!  .. but they don't.... bye.....  And off they walked. Then my neighbour poked his head out the window and said "hey Lisa they were just trying to break into your house!" so I followed them around the corner - hoping to take a picture, only to discover they were hastily changing their jumpers. they saw me and started to run... I took chase, helped by two guys on bikes, and just as I was thinking all was lost a Police car came around the corner, with our local friendly PCSO's on board.... well... I waved them down and they jumped out and chased those blokes so fast! they jumped over walls and all sorts as the blokes split up, and within a few minutes both had been caught!  

So thankyou to the PCSO's the Police my fantastic neighbours, the boys on bikes and Julie!

It was organised an funded by local young people through the Youth opportunities board - here is one of the boarde members ewho told me about how their board works, young people are able to apply to the YOB for funds to carry out projects in Bournemouth. All the decisions are made by a board of young people too!

.
I bumped into some other councillors too. here are Cllrs Dave Smith and Michael Weinhonig....


I was also very impressed by the security measures... I was very ID'd!!

We are selling our handbags this weekend at the BIC craft fair, it runs from Friday - Sunday.... here are some of the ones made from crisp packets!


I was amazed when I was at the BIC yesterday and my friend Lee said "did you see all of those ladies outside with their sleeping bags?"

My Mum in China


I'm keeping in touch with what my Mum gets up to in China where she is visiting maufaturers, she adds to her blog through her mobile phone, I keep checking to see what she's doing - isn't that cool!? there's a link to her blog - (sallys blog) on the right - http://sallywilton.blogspot.com


When I got Wi-fi at home we left it unproected for a while, I noticed that people started sittng on the bench opposite our house with latops, some even with head phones and cams. It made me think... wherever there is free wireles people gather. A couple of years and many meeting on, we have unveiled the first free public space wireless in Doret right here in Boscombe! My hope is that we will be known for something positive, which is useful for tourists, students and local people. The wireless is enabled through two 'iplus' kiosks, these are touch screen units which have lots of local info - maps, travel info, council info, there is a diect link where you can e-mail me if you like! or send a video or postcard to friends - so next time you're in Bosombe send me something....

These picture are from the lanch, where we had a fab day with lots of food provided by Boogaloo, which was lovely!

Here is a picture from the Halloween party at Curchill gardens tonight! There was a free barbie from the Police Community Support Oficers, Noah the drummer entertaining the Children and activities provided by the boredom busters team, the fire brigade added to the occasion with a chip pan fire demo, great fun!

The Print Room





Me and m' Julie had a lovely lunch at the Print Room, the new Restaurant which used to be the room Echo was printed in. Our lunch was cool, with beautiful food, we had children with us and the place is dead echoey with every drop of a fork crashing out around the whole place! I think we would go again, but maybe when they start school!

Da Da Da Daaaaa

I went along with Matilda to see the BSO's Beethoven performance, it was great and it included his 5th Variously called the 'Fate' theme or the knocking theme, it's absolutely enduringly mysterious, bright yet full of strange portent and the symphony, Beethoven's first one to have a minor key attached to it, remains a miracle of genius for what it said and does still say to the heart, the emotions and the mind.

I just went into Deacons to meet a friend for his birthday and to buy him a drink, the bar maid asked if I had any ID... I laughed a little till I realised she was being serious. I said no, she said, well you don't look over 21!!!!! I was just confused as I started to realise that I couldn't even stay in the pub, or even buy a coke, I started to say, well I'm 31 actually, but she clearly didn't believe me and If I argued about it it would set a terrible example, so I just had to come home...

Mozart

This coming Tuesday at 7.30pm The magnificence of St Clements church will once more be candlelit.
Mozart died aged 36 in 1791 leaving some 600 sublime compositions.
Stromenti, Boscombe's resident professional ensemble, is privileged to appear with Stewart Collins. Stewart is well known to Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra audiences for his dry wit and sense of the amusing, and he has written his own monologue in the first person. Dressed in a slightly ridiculous costume as Amadeus, he is intercepted by excerpts from Mozart's Eine Kleine Nacht Musik, string quartets, divertimenti, Turkish Rondo, Musical Joke and other snippets.
Our research uncovers that the composer suffered from Tourette Syndrome, manifested in obsessive use of vulgarities, including the words of one 6 part canon for voices, translated from Viennese slang to polite English....."embrace my rear". Worry not, however, none of Mozart's indecent expletives have been included in Stewart's script.

Concert commences 7.30pm. Free parking both sides of the church. Fair trade refreshments at the interval.
Reservations by telephone 01202 399114 or on line at www.stromenti.com
This is the information going to Wednesdays Cabinet meeting - let me know what you think!

That the development of a small urban park and affordable
housing on the site of TS Phoebe, Springbourne Day Centre and
allotments (the Springbourne site), shown hatched black on the
plan at Appendix 1, be supported in principle and progressed in
accordance with the draft action plan at Appendix 3.
1.2 That Officers be instructed to enter into negotiations with TS
Phoebe and the allotment holders to secure their relocation to
alternative sites.
1.3 That proposals for the relocation of TS Phoebe be the subject of a
further Cabinet report, to include any requests for financial
assistance.
1.4 That the Cabinet Member with the Economy & Tourism portfolio
be given delegated authority to approve the relocation of the
allotments.
1.5 That the Cabinet Member with the Resources portfolio be given
delegated authority to approve the terms for a sale of the land
identified for affordable housing to a housing association.

Here is an update on the BCCA, This is the recommendation going to cabinet on Wednesday 10th:

Recommendation:

Road, shown hatched black on the plan at Appendix 1. The mix of uses and
terms of the transaction to be approved by the Cabinet Portfolio Holder for
Resources after consultation with the Housing and Procurement Portfolio
Holder.
1.2 To authorise officers to further explore the opportunity to include a Centre
for Independent Living as part of a mixed-use development on the site.
1.3 Officers to be authorised to progress an outline Business Case for the early
demolition of the BCCA buildings, excluding 70 Gladstone Road.
2.0 Reason:
2.1 To determine the future use of the BCCA site. This responds to the Council
