As the shorter days begin to leave us and that strange looking bright thing in the sky starts to hang around for a little longer, things are definitely warming up in The Breaker offices.
Today’s edition features a whole host of varying news stories proving, well and truly, that the big freeze hasn’t chilled the local areas potential for piping hot news.
Our top stories today demonstrate that, running from Israel’s attack on Syria, Police and Crime Commissioner, Martyn Underhill’s policing precept proposals, and Bournemouth Borough Council spending £130,000 on a new cycle route.
Look below the surface, and you’ll find stories that really demonstrate the varying news of our local area: Tom Dale’s look into Bournemouth Bartenders League’s first cocktail competition is truly one to wet the whistle. Whilst, Dora Wang’s article on new plans to accommodate Poole’s homeless raises some interesting issues.
Of course, there are interesting ongoing topics in our community such as the opposed closure of Dorset Enterprises, a factory staffed by workers with disabilities. As well as growing financial pressure on small groceries in the face of competition from supermarket chains.
My article found me reacting to the closure of two Bournemouth nightclubs and the implications that it holds for other local nightspots, could many of our favourite watering holes be drinking in the last chance saloon?
So sit back, and take a read through our offerings from today. You won’t regret it.
