Navitus Bay scales back proposed wind park

Navitus Bay Development Ltd has today announced that it will scale back the proposed wind park in order to reduce its visual impact.

In response to feedback received from the public and statutory consultees during the final round of consultation last year, the developer will remove the northernmost part of the development – the ‘top triangle’ – which will move the site up to 3.8km further away from the shore.

This latest change, when combined with the previous scaling back of the site in December 2012, will significantly reduce the visual impact of the development from all viewpoints along the coast in Dorset, Hampshire and the Isle of Wight, whilst ensuring that the project continues to make an important contribution to sustainable energy generation in the UK and to the local economy in the shape of jobs and investment.

The Regent Centre appoints Greg Rawlings as Manager

The Regent is the centre for the arts, entertainment, cinema and the community in Christchurch whilst also serving audiences in East Dorset, the New Forest and beyond.

The Board of Directors of the Regent Centre are pleased to announce the appointment of a new Manager, Greg Rawlings, who has grown up in the area and now lives in Ensbury Park.

Greg Rawlings comes from the LifeCentre in Winton near Bournemouth, where he oversaw the conversion of the former Moderne cinema into a multi-purpose conference centre. The Moderne, much like the Regent, was built in the 1930s as a 1,500 seater Super Cinema. It closed in the 1980s and again, just like the Regent, became a Bingo Hall. Today it is the LifeCentre multi-purpose conference centre and is an object lesson in architectural restoration with much of its white stucco interior and exterior designed to reflect its original glory days as an Art Deco palace of the silver screen. The project is an award worthy tribute to Greg and the team at the LifeCentre.

Saturday Sun: Orixé

Debut Album Released: Monday 13th January 2014 on Viva La Fleetwood Records

“Where do Saturday Sun songs go? It's a question that's formed with awe. The way the group orchestrates and bends those minutes.” – Daytrotter

“Gentle acoustics and lush melodies” – Q

Saturday Sun are a 4-piece from Swanage in Dorset who take their name from the Nick Drake song and make music echoing in parts Drake’s 60’s acoustic sound, but with an added fusion of folk, rock and blues, recalling maverick John Martyn, with a touch of psychedelia early Pink Floyd style. The mixture of influences creates a sound built on gentle but intricate acoustic guitar work, but one that sonically grows into something bigger with lush expansive melodies.

Marine science, Bournemouth

Fossil pigments reveal the colours of ancient sea monsters

An international team of scientists has, for the first time, revealed the colour scheme of an extinct marine animal using fossilised skin pigment from three multi-million-year old marine reptiles.

Previously, scientists could only guess what colours huge reptiles, such as mosasaurs and ichthyosaurs had; however, pigment preserved in fossilised skin has now been analysed at SP Technical Research Institute of Sweden and MAX IV Laboratory at Lund University in Sweden. The unique soft tissue remains were obtained from a 55 million-year-old leatherback turtle, an 85 million-year-old mosasaur and a 196–190 million-year-old ichthyosaur.
