Can anyone recommend a local (near to Westbourne) hotel with pool that is open to the public, or has a membership scheme?  Or other gyms with pools? Thanks

Wanted any unused/unloved/unwanted wigs, I started chemo 2 weeks ago & my hair has already started to fall out so I decided to have it all shaved off tonight. I am not vain & will wear a baseball cap most of the time but thought it may put a ... [ more ]

Stephanie L

i dont mine people on the scooters as i know what its like not to be able to walk far as i cant and still use crutches but when people are rude on them its not funny i even give way to them but in a shop its bad when the person can walk with a stick ... [ more ]
Sandra R
As a user of mobility scooter myself Stephanie L please be aware the not everyone on a mobility scooter can walk with aids such as a stick. It is very hard to keep stopping and much easier for a person on foot to get out of the way. I've been able ... [ more ]

Begging and homeless people in Westbourne

Penny F
in Branksome
A fortnight ago there was a couple who'd obviously spent the night in the doorway in what was Greggs. They were extremely noisy and drunk. To be honest I was horrified to see that there appears to be an overflow from the centre of Bournemouth. Walking ... [ more ]
Sandra R
They definitely need help, Well said Paul H and Amanda D. My heart goes out to them. I have a place to live and don't have to worry where my next meal is coming from. I can't imagine a life on the streets.

Hi. I'm new to streetlife. I currently live in Plymouth but plan to move to your area this year. I'm really looking forward to it and streetlife will be really useful to me to enable me to reach out to others in the area, get to know about stuff ... [ more ]
Sandra R
Hi Kay B. Thank you so much for your comments on Alder Road etc. You mention best to avoid all the main roads and I wondered whether somewhere like e.g. a cul-de-sac in Bearwood might be worth considering but was concerned that when I wanted to get ... [ more ]
Sandra R
Thanks a lot Kay for your comments. Viewed a house in Bear Wood today. The area was lovely but the house was not for me unfortunately. Viewing a bungalow in Canford Heath tomorrow. Spent some time on sandbanks beach over last few days soaking up ... [ more ]

Advice needed on seeing a consultant privately

Hilary F

Can anyone tell me if it's worth jumping the NHS queue to see a consultant privately ? My 29 year old son is in a desperate situation with his back. He had spinal decompression surgery two and a half years ago for congenital stenosis ( narrowing of ... [ more ]
Sandra R
If I were you I would go to see a consultant privately. May 20th is three plus months away. He is desperate and in pain. That's my opinion. All the best.

Our very friendly, male neutered, fluffy black and white cat has gone missing from Worthington Crescent on 24 February. Last seen at 11pm. He usually can be seen around our cul de sac if he is not in the house. We are close to Baden Powell school that ... [ more ]
Sandra R
Thanks for letting us know Dorrie. I'm over the moon that he came home safe and well. I know how we love our animals so much and they are loved as much as any member of the family. Great news.

Can anyone recommend a Cattery please?

Maggie W in Parkstone
I'm new to the area and looking for a good quality cattery, can anyone recommend one (or alternatively, any to avoid) Thanks!
Sandra R
If you use a cat sitting service make sure they are insured. Thoroughly check them out because you are leaving a family member ( your cat) with them.

Missing Cat

Sandra R
I've also just put his picture on Facebook and urged people to look out for him. Could others reading this do the same. Let us know Jonathan if he turns up. Keeping my fingers crossed.

can not understand why there are so many foxes running about in the day in parkstone i always see them  at night  think  they might be mix up with the season  i had 2 big ones in my garden and they didnt even go near the cats that was just watching ... [ more ]
Sandra R
Saw 4 foxes in my garden I think it was the day before yesterday at lunchtime. I was quite surprised to see them at that time. I was a bit worried because I have a cat and people have said online that their cat's have been killed by a fox. It gives ... [ more ]
Sandra R
I have just read again on the Internet of foxes eating cats. For example in N.W. Bristol in one year 1,225 cats were killed by foxes.

Have you seen Toby?

Sarah A
in Stanley Green
Toby didn't come home on Monday 30/11. He is a dark grey tabby and has a bad back leg at the moment so finds it hard to jump. Could you please check your garden, shed etc in case he is hiding. Toby lives in Verity Crescent and is very much missed, ... [ more ]
Sandra R
You must have been so happy when he returned and now he's gone again! I do hope he returns soon. Sounds like someone's feeding him if he didn't come back bedraggled and especially if he doesn't come back starving. All the best for his safe return.

Sandra R
I am disabled and as such I realise that the people who abuse the system and use our allocated parking spaces have no idea of what it means to be disabled and how necessary these spaces are to us. This doesn't excuse their action. I also think that ... [ more ]
Sandra R
I so agree Dee D with what you just said and that was more or less what I was implying in my last comment. We should never judge others with regards to the blue badge because we could be judging unfairly and without knowing their condition/s. It is ... [ more ]

Mobility Scooters – A Real Nuisance?

Jean G
in Westbourne
Interesting letter in yesterday’s (Saturday 21 November) ‘Daily Echo’. Refers to mobility scooter users charging round – shouting “out of the way”. Have to admit, may have used these words a few times – but only on way to the bar. Letter also ... [ more ]
Sandra R
i am shocked that able bodied people would criticise those less fortunate who have to use mobility scooters. Yes by all means give them their own lane on the pavement but to class use on the pavement as a "privilege" is unfair. Able bodied people ... [ more ]
