Joe Quinlan & Kalem Brinkworth, Founders: The Bonbon Boys

Kalem and I have known each other for eight years, and we've always wanted to do a business together. We have worked with each other in the past, so we know what one another's styles are like. But it took us a while to figure out exactly what we wanted to do and what the product was. And so, during lockdown there was a lack of pick-and-mix -- for two people who love sweets, that's not very good...

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...

Laura Hardwick, Baker

Even though cupcakes are my biggest stressor (because I always worry they're not perfect), I love the satisfaction of seeing a box of cakes ready to leave. I love making customers' ideas come alive in cake form. I wouldn't say I have a 'favourite', but I think my Coffee and Walnut cakes are always a big hit, and I make a mean Lemon Drizzle...!

Jack Quinney, Bartender / Mixologist

When it comes to cocktail creation, I just test flavours and see how they work, and then add from there. I don't like overcomplicating drinks or adding too many flavours. Alternatively, sometimes I think of a name for the cocktail and design it from there...

Northbourne Pub Called “Pillar of the Community” During Lockdown

It’s all a bit surreal, isn’t it? Our streets, once rife with the hustle-and-bustle of commuters, shoppers and local food stalls, now a ghost town. But not everyone is staying inside. The Crown in Northbourne has a long history of fundraising and a charitable attitude within the community, and COVID-19 hasn’t slowed them down...

Art Sushi Takes to Deliveroo

It isn't only the big businesses doing delivery services, you know! Here's local brand Art Sushi putting their two pence in. For your lockdown...

BH Fish Launches in Lockdown

The Coronavirus pandemic caused all restaurants in the UK (and most in Europe) to close. A move that left our local fishermen without trade. With this in mind, enter Jon Morgan of Dorset Cruises comes in. Partnering with Rob Milton from Othniel Oysters, he has created and launched BH Fish, a local online seafood delivery and collection service.

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: Journey to the FA Cup

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...
