What’s happening to our Post Offices? Their services are important to us and essential to local businesses. Indeed, they are part of our local communities.

It was a worry a few years ago when the large post office and royal mail depot in the centre of Christchurch was sold off for property redevelopment.

Along with the Regent Centre, Christchurch’s other big non-for-profit business is the Priory Church....

With the new Vicar settled in, the Priory is determined to become more outward looking and has big development plans.

Over the years the large historic house behind the Priory (Priory House) had become underused- but that is no more. It has been renovated with a new café linked into the Priory. Choir rooms and offices have also been established . That was only Phase One, however.

I have been advised not to write this month’s article!

First I am going to alienate 58.8% of you. Second given the time gap between me writing it and you reading it, who can guess what else has changed. I am, of course, talking about Brexit. I spoke for Remain at the Christchurch Chamber of Trade meeting just before the vote and felt most the businesses- and certainly the youngsters who braved the meeting- were in favour of Remain. Christchurch, however, supported Brexit and 18,268 voted leave (against 12,782 remain). Whilst I believe in the E.U, I recognise that the E.U leadership did little over many years to sell its own benefits and I feel they have no-one to blame but themselves.

Look the part with AEG Prints!

Here at AEG Prints we want you and your organisation to look the part! Thats why we offer both in house printing, and in house embroidery - we are the one stop shop for all your garment needs.

Whats is better, printing or embroidery ?

Both are great methods to personalise garments, however they both have very different effects and needs. Because we offer both printing and embroidery we can supply you with one or the other, or both!

Embroidery:

Embroidery is a very professional and high quality look, which always look fantastic when your organisations logo or name is embroidered onto a garment. Embroidery is long lasting and can be added to almost any garment.

Printing:

Printing is a great way to personalise garments for events and special occasions. Its great for adding text and large images to garments, to make you stand out above the rest.

How will I know which one to choose?

That is where we come in! If you are unsure whether you want embroidery or printing come and see us and we would love to help you. We have loads of examples we can show you and we will be able to advise you whether we think you should have embroidered or printed garments.

As a modern day man, long gone are the days of not caring for yourself. Nowadays we generally know how important it is to look after ourselves! What about the biggest organ on our body though– the Skin? More specifically the face. Your face announces your age, health and vitality, so it is a must to invest in presenting the best version of yourself that you possibly can.

Having said this, there are lots of skin products around, but how do you know what to use? How to use it? What it actually does? There are lots of questions and things you need to know to get onto a great skincare routine that absolutely works for you.

One of the most successful businesses in the centre of Christchurch is not even a “for profit” business. It is a charity run with the support of 200 unpaid volunteers.

The Regent Centre was built as a cinema 85 years ago in 1931 at the start of Hollywood’s Golden Age. But as cinema audiences declined, so did the Regent Centre. For a period it was a Bingo Hall and when that failed the doors were closed in 1973 and the property lay empty.

If you’re almost a teenager (or are the proud parent of), then the chance of you coming across acne is pretty high. Around 8 in 10 12-19 year olds will suffer from this ‘normal’ transition from child to adult. Sometimes it can even last through adulthood.

However, knowing this doesn’t make it any easier when you look into the mirror and see that huge pimple that’s appeared from nowhere! The good news is that learning about acne, your skin & taking some quick steps early on can really help you.

When choosing your custom garments, deciding between polo shirts or t-shirts can be a difficult decision as they are both so similar. Both are comfortable, casual, budget friendly and handle embroidery and screen print well. How are you meant to choose when there’s so little difference? Here’s the advantages and disadvantages of both to help you pick the best garment for you, whether you’re looking to update your uniform or planning a one off event.

The new Living Wage has now come into effect and could have significant implications for Christchurch.

I remember a remarkable survey a few years ago put Christchurch near the top of a league of ‘deprived areas’. This was based on our relatively high cost of living but the fact that our main employment is in tourism and care services. Both industries are notorious for their low pay.

Here Comes The Sun......

Now that the weather is improving, and as I assist people in how to look after and protect their skin on a daily basis, I thought I would take the opportunity to share some information and advice around this hot topic.

Sun Protection
is simply the guarding of your body from the adverse effects of sunlight. Most of us know that sunburn can damage the skin, cause premature signs of aging, cause wrinkles and cause some types of cancer.

Vitality in Bold Age – Our Life Energy.

When I spent time with my two-and-a-half-year-old nephew at the weekend I thought, ‘You don't have to teach 2-year-olds ways to have more energy; that's the way they come out of the box’. So really, it's not that we don't have energy as adults; it's that we’ve created conditions — often by many years of bad lifestyle choices — that make it almost impossible for energy to show up.

At long last, a Christchurch development is taking place...

Eight years after Aldi’s first application in 2008 for development at the top of Somerford (now called Meteor Park), not only has the work started but it is proceeding at a cracking pace. Indeed it will not be long before the keys to the site are handed over to the retailers.

Only a few years ago we were reeling from numerous supermarket planning application. The site at the back of Barrrack Road was the first to get permission for an Asda store- but the site still remains empty. Next Beagles’ application for the building of a Morrisons finally got the go ahead after appeal- but again there is no sign of any development taking place.

Why do we need a Skincare Regime?

Your body surface is home to one of our largest organs - The Skin. Our skin breathes, removes impurities, and helps us to look and feel great. It defines us and makes us appear different; it is amazing what our skin can really do. We put our skin under a lot of pressure. Females wanting to look their best, men putting their skin through work or lifestyle challenges and children growing.. We pluck, wax, tan, sunbathe, we hit, scratch, bump it, bruise and cut it. We also colour, stain, tattoo, paint it and even shave, pierce, stretch it and take bits from here and stitch on there and the list could go on…Our skin goes through a lot.

It's Tea

Tea is the most popular drink choice, apart from water, in the world. Moreover, there are more varieties of tea than many people even knew existed.

Here at It’s Tea, we start to scratch the surface by having over 200 different teas for you to enjoy, but we would like to hep you understand what it is you are drinking so you can enjoy expanding your horizons. Let’s start by explaining a bit about the tea types I mentioned.
