Cameron Varnish, Founder: Hurricane Apparel

I didn't really think anything of it until the events company came along. We were trying to get some branded merchandise together. Just for giveaways and to wear at our events - to give us an edge over everyone else. Went to a guy in Winton - Otto House - fantastic printer - who does screen printing. When you do a screen, you have to do a lot. Like a minimum order of 20, and they all have to be the same. Great quality, but I was there thinking, "I want every one to be different. If there was a way of doing it differently, I would do it"...

A Day in the Life of a Football Cameraman – Graham Howe

Sport has always been a massively important part of my life. I come from a very sporty background on my mother's side - one of my mum's brothers was a very successful professional footballer. I played at all levels of football up to international. In schoolboy football, I was on the books as youngster at Luton Town and Arsenal; I didn't get very far for various reasons. So I think to me, sport probably got me where I am today more than academia...

Dom Hughes, Co-Founder: Myriad

So, I worked in the recycling industry after graduation, which gave me an insight into end-of-life products and the journey they go on. One of the key things I took away from that was that recycling is good, but there's so much more that we can do to take it a step further and obtain a greater value from the products. A lot of this boils down to how the products are designed...

Bournemouth’s Connections to the Literary World

At first, Tolkien and his wife Edith, would only holiday in Bournemouth. Once again, they would always stay in the one place, this time it being the Hotel Miramar on the East Cliff. However, when Edith became increasingly frail, Tolkien closed the door on Oxford, and the couple retired to a modest, now demolished, bungalow that backed onto Branksome Chine, where they lived until Edith died in 1971...

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.
