Nathan Emmanuel (a.k.a. Nayshan), Musician & Journalist

Initially, that was through university. In my final year, I had to make either a presentation or a mini documentary piece. Now, me being me, living outside the box, I didn't just want to make that regular documentary-style kind of thing, and talk about my so-called financial issues during university. I wanted to make it different; I wanted to put it in a narrative form that people are more likely to connect with and engage with. Something different that catches their eye a bit more, and that's what really inspired the rapumentary style...

Matt England, Founder: Sun Rum

About five years ago a friend and I went to a gin tasting evening and we were both at the point in our careers where we were both stable but were getting a bit restless with wanting to create something for ourselves; work for ourselves. So, I dipped my toes in spirits, manufacturing and retailing with gin and I loved the idea of it. But I felt the gin category was a very saturated market and I wanted to create something unique. I looked at a lot of data in regard to trends and other styles of drink and rum kept shouting out at me...

Ali Khalid, Teacher

I was actually disappointed not to be able to pursue the job that I love doing every day and not see my students. I really engaged with them in the time we shared and it became part of my lifestyle. I also felt really bad for them -- they had to stop their classes and activities here that they paid for in advance. Some of them were able to travel back to their countries, but others didn’t find any flights, so they had to stay here in lockdown on their own. Also some of them got stuck in other countries during their travels...

David G Taylor, Artist / Writer

My artwork sometimes features textile-like abstract patterns and colours that reference artists such as Alexander Calder and Joan Miro. I’ve developed a language of ambiguous shapes and marks that could be read as purely decorative, but on closer inspection suggests otherwise. As a collagist, I’m influenced by the Dada and Pop Art movements. There's also definitely a Punk aesthetic. I’m obsessed with lurid Day-Glo colours, and I’m trying not just to appropriate photographs, but often to annihilate them...

Christchurch FC kicked off their campaign with a comfortable 2-0 victory over division foes, Bashley. In the second round, the Hurn Bridge outfit welcomed Dorchester Town, who sit two divisions above them in the Southern League South. This match-up didn't daunt Christchurch, who very much dominated the majority of the game. They needed Dorchester to clear the ball from their goal-line twice, before getting a well-deserved 89th minute winner...
