Bournemouth history

A History of Bournemouth...

Before Bournemouth was a haven for tourists, the district between Poole and Christchurch was a vast wild heathland, known as Bourne Heath, which extended as far as Dorchester. This vastly unpopulated land was the perfect haunt for smugglers who shipped in stolen goods from around the country and further afield.

So great had smuggling been on the South Coast in the eighteenth century that in the 1720’s a petition was delivered to the House of Commons in London. The petition asked those in charge to put a stop to the illegal goods run that threatened the livelihoods of local manufacturers and businesses in Poole and Christchurch. Despite the locals’ actions, the underground business continued to thrive along the coastline, even creating local names out of association, such as Smuggler’s Cove, also known as Lulworth Cove.

Successful Charity Handbag Auction to Return to Bournemouth

Returning for its fourth consecutive year, Autism Wessex’ Helping Handbag Charity Auction will take place at 1812 Lounge Bar in Bournemouth on 17th October 2013. Over the past three years the event has raised approximately £15,000 for the charity with every effort being made to ensure this is its biggest and best year yet with this year’s event coinciding with the charity’s 45th anniversary year!

Paul Reade, Community and Events Fundraiser comments; “We are delighted to be hosting this special, glamorous occasion once again this year and have the support of a number of ‘must-have’ brands, including Mulberry, who have donated the ever popular ‘Oversized Alexa Bag’ (worth £995.00). We will have live music as well as pre-auction entertainment and stalls. The live auction will again be the highlight of the evening with an entertaining auctioneer adding value to this prestigious event. Many brand new designer and pre-loved bags will be up for grabs. We are encouraging the local community to get behind the event again this year and kindly donate their gently used or pre-loved bags to the charity to be sold at the event. Brand new shoes will also be available to buy this year. We are really looking forward to another glamorous occasion and invite the local community to book their tickets and come and join us.”

This week Bournemouth LINks, the organisation that aims to inspire positive change to local health and social care, launched a report based on over three consecutive years’ worth of research into young people’s attitudes to the provision of health and social care services.

The report, entitled “A Problem Has To Fit In One Box”, was launched on 20th March in Bournemouth and was well attended from stakeholders, local Councillors and representatives from the business community. The report has been collated by LINks following collaboration with the “Sussed Advisory Project”, Youth clubs in Boscombe and Pokesdown, as well as The Bournemouth Integrated Youth Service, and covers issues that affect every young person, including alcohol and drug use, sexuality, pregnancy, peer pressure, bullying and mental health.
