Barbara, I drive a 4x4 car and I am certainly not a selfish or dangerous driver, I like to think that I am a very careful and considerate driver.

Cheryl B
Hi Owen, where in Parkstone do you go to Weight Watchers and what night/time? I'm doing Slimming World at the moment and sometimes I swap to Weight Watchers if I want a change. I am thinking of going back to weight watchers at some point in the near ... [ more ]

Yes, I know Karen that runs this group, I guess it was the one you're going to, as I think thats the only group in Parkstone, Tell Karen I may be back in the spring. I normally would go to the evening session.

Not too sure about 'nextdoor'. ย They want too much private info for my liking. ย I like the semi-anonymity of Streetlife ?

Save Poole Park Railway

Cheryl B
I used to love going on that train when I was a toddler in the 1960's, I think the last time I went on there as a child was when I was 10 in 1970. When my 2 sons were little in the 1990's they ... [ more ]
Cheryl B
Typical B.O.P! They get rid of anything thats enjoyable! I bet half the councillor's aren't even locally born or bred here! I used to love that train (as I said in my previous comment) then going over to Poole park zoo to see the animals.

What about cash for clothes near Home base, Branksome? You get money back (about 50p per kilo), just so long as its in good condition.

Cheryl B
I also think Poole town and its council are disgusting, I think that we should all go into the council offices and use their toilets as one person said on their comments. As I said before I never ever go into Poole shopping, there's no decent shops to ... [ more ]
Cheryl B
I agree with you Wendy, I'm reluctant to let strangers use my salon as the staff room is near my loo so are our hand bags, stock etc... also, it means I have to hover around to make sure that they do not do a de-tour to my staff room. Wendy, if you ... [ more ]
Cheryl B
Well, that's disgusting!! If B.O.P. can afford to have their entrance done up, they can afford to keep the loo's open! I can suggest that if we get caught short, if we are down near the council offices, that we park in the Sloop car park and nip over ... [ more ]
Cheryl B
Perhaps the person responsible doesn't also have a loo in their house, they just go anywhere in the garden, I would not like to live next door to them, the property must stink to high heaven.

Speed Humps

Mark R in Branksome
Whilst I acknowledge that there are varying forms of speed calming measures and in many cases add greatly to road safety efforts in given areas. However if you look at varying speed humps around Bournemouth and Poole, the construction, height, size, ... [ more ]
Cheryl B
We have them in Parkstone as well. What I don't like is the chicanes that we have jutting out into the middle of the road, does any one remember the one that was on the top of Churchill road, going into Rossmore Road? That one caused so many accidents ... [ more ]


Cheryl B
Hope everyone had a great Christmas on Streetlife, we had a lovely time today, especially after our oldest son Tim got engaged to his lovely girl-friend Rosie yesterday, which was fantastic.

I went to Cabot Lane Warehouse on Saturday was astonished at the size of it. But upset me to see so much really good stuff which could have been given to charity shops or Dorset Reclaim. I just don't get it that people will drive to the dump to throw ... [ more ]

Mobile hairdressers

Marcus P
in Branksome
can anyone recommend a mobile hairdresser, my wife needs to find someone local who can give her a cut & colour. Thank you.
Cheryl B
Marcus, if you find a mobile hairdresser, make sure they are registered and qualified. Also, if your wife wants her hair coloured she must have a consultation first, also a patch and skin test to make sure she is not allergic to the hairdressers ... [ more ]

Duvet cleaning.

Cheryl B
You are right wild poet & Wendy, there is no Sainsburys on Ashley rd, there is a small one on Bournemouth road, the Alder road one is nowhere near Ashley road, its about 2 miles away from the centre of ashley road.
Cheryl B
The retreat pub was there when I first moved to Parkstone in 1981, you're right Wendy, that pub was well dodgy. I've never liked any of the pubs in Parkstone as a lot of them were rough and intimidating where you get stared at for poaching on their ... [ more ]

Alison B in Wallisdown
Has anyone got a splitender they don't use, I've just broken mine and I can't get one anywhere unless I get it from USA. Thanks in advance. Alison B.
Cheryl B
My advice is that the only way to get rid of split ends is to get your hair trimmed regularly rather than using these gimmicky gadgets that claim to solve split end problems, being a hairdresser myself I would never recommend using these gadgets as ... [ more ]

Victoria W

After yet another disturbed nights sleep due to an alarm going off twice in the very early hours, does anyone have any suggestions as to who this is or what we can do about it? The same thing happened at 2.30am on Thursday and\or Friday. Thanks in ... [ more ]
Cheryl B
We had the same problem about 10 years ago and we called the police, they may be able to locate it, It could be that the person who's alarm it is may be on holiday. It could be a car alarm somewhere nearby. Hope you get it sorted.
Cheryl B
One of my neighbours had a car alarm that kept on going off all the time, it did get a bit much when it went off in the night and they just ignored it, I did put a note on their car in the end, I was relieved when they changed their car. ... [ more ]
