Roundabout East Dorset Villages December 2018

Dear readers,

Welcome to this year’s Christmas edition of Roundabout East Dorset Villages. Although the very mild weather we have whilst we go to print makes Christmas seem a very long way off – despite all the Christmas displays and goodies already in the shops!

Not that I have ventured anywhere near any shops at Bournemouth or Castlepoint recently what with the dreadful Spur Road hold-ups and the reconstruction of the car park at Castlepoint reducing car parking substantially! Oddly enough my phone has just alerted me to Black Friday but I’m still not tempted! No doubt like most of you I find internet shopping one of the great benefits of the digital age!

Of course my husband agrees with me wholeheartedly on this subject as it now avoids the annual Christmas shopping expedition which he absolutely detested since the male and female concept of shopping are just worlds apart! Proving the saying that – ‘Men are from Mars and Women are from Venus!’

Of course the Postal Service really comes into its own at this time of year and we have a potted history on page 20 which I found fascinating especially the fact that scam emails and particularly scam letters have been with us for around 150 years!

As well as seasonal features we still have all the usual articles  and if like me you MAY want to treat a loved one at this time of year AND help local businesses, look in here first in the ‘Local Business Directory’ on page 34!

Finally my team and I would like to wish all our readers and advertisers the very warmest of festive greetings for this Christmas and the New Year.
