SUN, SEA…..and REX

With the grey clouds at last starting to give

way to bouts of brilliant sunshine, now's

the time to rejuvenate your senses and

exercise your dog at the same time by

heading for our sparkling coastline. But

where can you and Rex, your

poo-producing, sandwich-stealing pooch

actually go without upsetting everyone

else around you? Read on, Sophie's Pet

Care have got it all sorted...

free bits of hot sausage. Now it's changed

hands, and become a no-dog zone inside.

However, there's a wide selection of

public seating with rejuvenating sea views

outside, and you can grab a snack and a

drink from the beachfront shop. There are

also public conveniences available.

Gundimore Beach at Mudeford is ideal.

Unlike it's neighbour Avon Beach — where

from May they'll fine you and your fourlegged

friend for setting foot on it —

little-known Gundimore, right next door

remains "dog friendly" all the year round.

You can leave your vehicle in the sunken

car park just behind the beach, or admire

the view from the public car park adjacent

to the Noisy Lobster Cafe. It's situated

right on the seafront overlooking the Isle

of Wight.

Gundimore Beach begins just to the right

of this car park and continues in a westerly

direction up toward Mudeford Quay.

There's usually a few dogs on the beach

cavorting around and plunging manfully

into the freezing waves. No one bothers

them or you as long as you pick up your

poo (well, not your poo exactly.... umm,

you know what we mean).

The Noisy Lobster Cafe used to be

dog-friendly, didn't mind sandy floors and

wet dogs and would often dish them out

We can supply a walk route sheet if you

fancy a wander around Gundimore in case

you're stuck for inspiration.

If you'd like a printable PDF of this walk

route that you can take with you, simply

email and

we'll send you one completely free of

charge, and tell you about the services we

can offer to you and your dog.

Poiron Dabin| New Arrivals from the Loire

At the Solent Cellar, we love sharing our

new wine discoveries from our travels.

Our latest trip encompassed several

appellations of the Loire Valley, ending our

trip South East of Nantes in the heart of

Muscadet country.

Poiron Dabin Sauvignon Blanc, IGP 2017 -

Initial vine cuttings came from the

prestigious village of Sancerre, this wine

represents amazing value. Delicate but ripe

passionfruit notes on the nose as well as

pear. It has a long citrus finish.

There has been some resurgence going on

in Muscadet over the recent years, and

quality is definitely on the up! The younger

generations are taking over the reins and

introducing new ideas and techniques.

Yields are being lowered and organic

viticulture is becoming more common. The

creation of a new Cru status for exceptional

areas for Muscadet has been exciting for

growers and this has resulted in the

creation of more complex wines. Although

only 2% of Muscadet's production accounts

for 'Cru Communal' it has raised the profile

of the region highlighting the importance of


Living on the South Coast , we love pairing

the wines we have to the amazing array of

fresh, local produce. At this time of year,

the white wines from the Loire are perfect

with fresh seafood such as Lymington Crab

or Poole bay oysters. The asparagus season

is also upon us, and there is nothing better

than a plate of the beautiful spears freshly

steamed and a glass of Sauvignon Blanc

from the region.

We visited on our trip, Poiron

Dabin a small producer. This

family owned estate work to

the Terra Vitis production

method, which follow

sustainable farming methods:

Poiron Dabin Muscadet Sur Lie Veille

Vignes - A wine from 50 year old vines, this

produces a classic 'Sur Lie' Muscadet with

citrus and green apple notes and

minerality. Pair to oysters!

Poiron Dabin Sauvignon 'Fie Gris' 2017 -

From one of their more obscure grape

varieties which has a pinkish hue to the

skin, this is fruity, slightly riper style with a

touch of elderflower and ripe apple. The

perfect match would be Asian food with a

touch of spice, or fish baked with aromatic


Poiron Dabin Chateau Thebaud 'Clos des

Tabardieres' Sevre et Maine' 2012 - The

top Cru communal wine where vineyards

are on prime granite sites, this wine spends

55 months on lees (minimum for this cru

wine is 24). It has an amazing depth of

flavour, ripe notes of apple, acacia honey

and a stony minerality. Save this for a

celebratory dish of brill or turbot. This wine

can age for up to 20 years in the cellar!

Whether you have a petrol or outboard powered craft, or a diesel inboard boat, below are

listed a few essential checks to help you get back on the water this season

Fuel: Petrol

Petrol will go stale so fill up your Fuel tank to

dilute any existing fuel.

Replace any canister fuel filters or clean out

any water traps or washable fuel filters.

Replace or clean spark plugs, especially if the

engine has been “fogged” before winter


Prime the fuel system and recheck the water

traps (condensation in fuel tanks over winter

months can create a surprising amount of

water in fuel tanks.)

Add fuel conditioner to your tanks – a well

worth investment, especially when today’s

petrol contains 10% ethanol.

Fuel: Diesel

Same as above with the filters etc.

Add a biocide and water absorber to prevent

“bug” in the tank.

Bleed fuel through to eliminate air in fuel


Ignition system, Electrical contact points &

Air Filters

Most petrol ignition systems are now modern

style CDI or TCI that require little

maintenance, but if you have an old distributor

style system the points will need cleaning


Batteries should be on trickle charge, and

stored off the floor in a warm environment

during the winter months. Recharge, check

the fluids and when battery terminals are

refitted, make sure the contacts are clean

and then lubricated with Vaseline or similar.

Check all domestic fuse boxes or exposed

connections, and check vital electrical items

such as bilge pumps, navigation lights etc. A

systems check on VHF and GPS would also be


Replace or at least check air filters. Don’t

forget to remove the rag you may have

stuffed up the air intake or the bag sealing

the exhaust!

Steering & Controls, Gear Boxes & Propellers

Check to see if the steering system works freely

before you attempt to launch at the slipway.

Likewise run & test the outboard or stern drive

engine before launching and check the operation

of throttle & gear shift. Nothing more

embarrassing than launching and finding you’re

stuck at high revs in reverse!!

On Outboards & Sterndrives, change the gear oil if

not already done - an absolute must especially if

the boat is staying in the water.

Likewise, check anodes on both the cavitation

plate, and prop shaft or engine bracket assembly.

Anti foul with suitable coating if required.

Check out the propeller, re-flare the blades if

required, and if possible, remove prop and grease

the shaft. On smaller engines with shear pins

check to see if you have spares!

If you trailer a boat, then always check the wheel

bearings before setting off and lubricate – better

safe than sorry.

Likewise trailer brakes and lighting boards also

require a quick check.

Before you launch, ensure all drain bungs are

refitted, sea cocks are turned off and your

mooring warps, fenders and anchor is on board

ready to use.

If you are leaving your boat on a mooring during

the summer months, then an appropriate

anti-foul applied to the hull will prevent foul build

up and subsequent poor performance.

It is also good practise to check the expiry date of

flares, lifejackets and service dates on life-rafts

and please, please, please wear your kill cord at all


There will be other items that will need checking

so always consult the professionals if unsure.

Disruption in War and


16 June – 23 Sept

Art historian James Taylor is the guest

curator for a ground-breaking exhibition opening at St

Barbe Museum and Art Gallery in Lymington on 16

June 2018.

Dazzle tells the fascinating story of how the use of

patterning on warships was introduced in the First

World War to confuse U-boat commanders as to the

speed and direction of the vessels.

The exhibition, featuring works of art on loan from the

Imperial War Museum, National Maritime Museum and

British Museum, as well as regional and private collections,

is based around paintings, drawings and prints

by artists such as Wilkinson, Wadsworth, and

Montague Dawson.

There is a myth that I would like to expel by

telling you a story.

Susan and Mark fell in love when they were

in their early twenties. They didn’t think

much to the idea of marriage - they had a

joint bank account and they lived together

which was pretty much the same thing.

Wasn’t it?

The years went by and they added to their

family, with two lovely children. They

moved into their own home. When the

property was purchased as Susan wasn’t

working and it was easier it was put in

Mark’s name. But that didn’t matter, did it?

Their friends and family would often ask

whether they were going to get married,

They didn’t see the point -they would state

that they were ‘common law’ husband and

wife and they didn’t need a piece of paper.

One family friend suggested that if they

weren’t intending to get married then they

should make Wills. They didn’t get around

to it.

Mark died suddenly in his early sixties.

There was still a little bit of mortgage

outstanding on the property. The children

were both now in their thirties with

families of their own.

Susan suddenly found that she did not have

the same rights as a spouse or civil partner

and there was no such entity as a common

law spouse.

Susan inherited the bank account as it was

a joint account. However, as the house was

Mark’s, she may have rights to live in it , as

she had been living there as a couple.

However, as they were only cohabitees, it

may not be plain sailing. Under the Rules

of Intestacy that apply when someone dies

without a Will, the house passed to the

children not to Susan. If Susan wanted the

house she would have to apply to the court

under the Inheritance (Family and

Dependents) Act 1975 as she would be a

recognised dependant.

This is only one of many stories we could

tell in relation to people dying without a

Will. The most distressing part for your

family ,is that not leaving clear instructions

in a Will means that the whole process of

dealing with your estate will be more

complex and could leave the people you

care about most with provision.

Let us help you put your wishes into words.

You may have heard about the General

Data Protection Regulations which are just

become law but may not have any idea

what it means for regular people. You’re

not alone. To fully explain GDPR would

take more space than I have here, but I

hope to give you an idea of how it affects


The reasoning behind GDPR is that

businesses have been playing fast and

loose with our personal information,

without too much in the way of risk to

themselves. For large companies, a fine of

£500,000 isn’t really a deterrent. £17m or

4% of annual turnover, whichever is

higher, hurts a bit more.

But it’s not just about what happens when

things go wrong. GDPR also gives the little

man the right to know what information a

company is holding about them, how long

they intend to hold it, what justification

they have to do so and the right to have

the information completely destroyed.

If there is a valid legal reason, such as part

of a contract, then there is no right to be

forgotten. But otherwise companies have

to comply with removal requests within a

reasonable timescale and can be reported

to the Information Commissioners Office,

who have much more power now, if they


Companies also have to publicly publish

how they deal with your personal information

and how long they intend to hold

on to it. They also have to say how

individuals can contact them with queries

or requests specifically relating to personal


These details are commonly linked to on

company websites, so look for links to

things like Personal Data Protection Policy,

Data Retention Policy or Data Privacy

Notice at the bottom of website pages, or

in their legal sections.

Most importantly, they cannot keep your

information without your consent if they

have no other reason to keep it. There is

something called ‘Legitimate Interest’ as

well as legal contracts which allow data

retention, but companies can only use

your data for the use they are claiming

legitimate interest. They can’t for instance

add you to their email list as well if they

don’t have your explicit consent to do so.

Companies have to renew any consent you

give on a regular basis and if they ask you,

and you don’t reply, they have to remove

you from their records. See for more information.
