“Eating at the Oyster & Fish House is always amazing,<br />

but gathering round Mark’s Kitchen Table takes the<br />

experience of wining and dining Hix-style to another<br />

level. If the incredible food created right in front of you<br />

Smugglers: Beneath the Surface<br />

Discover the real people and history<br />

behind Dorset’s tales of smuggling in this<br />

new exhibition from Shire Hall Museum.<br />

In the 18th and 19th centuries, Dorset was home to<br />

some of Britain’s most notorious smugglers. Across<br />

the coastline, hundreds of people were secretly moving<br />

goods in and out of the country for profit. But who were<br />

these people known as smugglers? And why did they<br />

begin smuggling?<br />

‘Smugglers: Beneath the Surface’ takes a closer look at<br />

four of Dorset’s most renowned smugglers. <strong>The</strong> nature<br />

of smuggling means those involved have left us little<br />

written evidence of their undercover exploits. What we<br />

do have are the handed-down stories.<br />

This exhibition explores the fame and success of Isaac<br />

Gulliver, the ruthless and violent behaviour of the<br />

Hawkhurst gang, the tragedy of young John Webber,<br />

and how smuggling became a “family business” for the<br />

Northovers.<br />


Each story gives a glimpse of the people behind<br />

the word ‘smuggler’ and explores how they ended<br />

up becoming involved in one of the most lucrative<br />

professions of their time.<br />

‘Smugglers: Beneath the Surface’ is at Shire Hall<br />

Museum from 27th July until 16th September <strong>2023</strong>.<br />

Entry to the exhibition is included with a Museum ticket.<br />

Art in the Garden<br />

Perennial colour from Galiani Glass Art<br />

Who would think of putting art in the garden? Why ever<br />

would you want to do this? At Galiani Glass Art, we think<br />

it’s the perfect place to show off the properties of glass<br />

and add incredible colours to your garden.<br />

Glass provides you with striking colour all through the<br />

year, stunning effects, and a definite ‘wow’ factor. You<br />

can choose to position your sculpture in dappled shadow,<br />

where the light and shade create amazing patterns and a<br />

moving kaleidoscope of colour within the glass, or in full<br />

sun where each location adds a different aspect to the<br />

design and the design process.<br />

In winter and spring, gardens can look a bit lacklustre,<br />

with little colour to brighten them up. This is where a<br />

glass sculpture in the garden delivers you colour and<br />

beauty all year round, with arresting garden architecture<br />

that blends with and adds to your garden design.<br />

<strong>The</strong> great news is that the colours in glass don’t fade,<br />

you don’t have to water them, and they don’t need a lot<br />

of weeding, making it a perfect addition to the garden.<br />

Our surroundings affect the way we feel, our mood and<br />

our positivity. It is well known that sunshine, colour,<br />

nature and art have positive effects on our mind and<br />

spirit. As many of us found out during lockdown, our<br />

gardens nurture us. <strong>The</strong>y help us foster a feeling of<br />

wellbeing that supports us through the ups and downs<br />

and day-to-day stresses life throws our way.<br />

With that in mind, we at Galiani began to utilise our<br />

design skills and glass craftsmanship to develop art<br />

for the garden in our own special way. We meet the<br />

challenges of design, function and the essence of yearround<br />

colour in our Glass Art creations.<br />

Our Sculptures are all bespoke, often having a stainless<br />

steel form designed and made in-house and polished to a<br />

high shine, to hold the beautiful glass and complement<br />

Above left: ‘Solar Flame’ – This Galiani ‘flame’ design was created using<br />

hot fire colours. Each piece of glass had to sit precisely against the<br />

others, needing exact cutting skills and craftsmanship. <strong>The</strong> colours in<br />

the finished piece look as if they are overlapping and undulating as<br />

living flames do. <strong>The</strong> stand for this sculpture is made using mild steel,<br />

so the metal takes on the red tones within the glass as it ages.<br />

Above right: Ian working on a sculpture design. <strong>The</strong> complex building of<br />

the ‘Solar Flame’ sculpture begins at the design station.<br />


‘Swanage Waves’ – This gorgeous sculpture was made<br />

in collaboration with Ted Edley of Dorset Copper Fish. Ted<br />

created the beautiful copper frame for the glass panel, and<br />

together they create a stunning effect. <strong>The</strong> panel is made using<br />

great craftsmanship and technique, with strong opaque colours<br />

of glass mounted on a translucent white back glass. It captures<br />

the feeling of constantly moving ocean waves.

the shapes and colours within, as well as adding a<br />

further dimension of reflection to the overall impact.<br />

Easy to keep clean, just a wipe with a damp cloth is all<br />

that may be needed. Just sit back and enjoy the addition<br />

to your garden.<br />

We have already been fortunate enough to have had<br />

our sculptures featured at Chelsea Flower Show and<br />

on display at Cotswold Sculpture Park in 2022. We<br />

are now designing pieces to have on display at RHS<br />

Prairie Garden in Sussex and additional sculpture parks<br />

throughout <strong>2023</strong> - so do look out for new pieces coming<br />

to our website and social media.<br />

Imagine a glass and metal sculpture in your garden<br />

as distinctive as the ones pictured here. To begin the<br />

process, all you need to do is contact us and arrange to<br />

come and visit our studio for a chat over coffee. Bring<br />

any ideas you may have with you, and we can go from<br />

there. We will start with design sketches and, once we<br />

have your approval, will move into the making process.<br />

You can even pop in to see how the design is building -<br />

exciting times!<br />

We love to work with potential clients, discussing their<br />

ideas, colour choices and thoughts for their design to<br />

get a good understanding of what they’re visualising. We<br />

add in our experience and knowledge to create just the<br />

individual piece of art to compliment your garden space.<br />

You can be assured we take pride in the high quality and<br />

impact of the finished sculpture.<br />

You can arrange to visit our Galiani Glass Art studio<br />

outside Poole, and you will find us at our own solo<br />

exhibition at Walford Mill from Wednesday 5th July –<br />

Sunday 30th July <strong>2023</strong>.<br />

Ian Godfrey and Gail<br />

Boothman are the driving<br />

forces behind Galiani Glass<br />

Art. Working with glass in<br />

different ways for nearly<br />

15 years, they are known<br />

for their wide range of<br />

glass art creations for<br />

homes and gardens, and<br />

have their work in private<br />

collections. For more<br />

Opposite: ‘Mystic Ocean’ - <strong>The</strong> glass rondel is made using beautiful<br />

transparent sea colours cut with skill and precision and capturing the<br />

movement of the sea. Added texture is created with individually placed<br />

pieces of glass. It is set in a highly polished stainless steel frame which<br />

reflects the colours of the glass and the setting in which it’s placed.<br />

Above left and right: ‘Water Planet’ – Glass rondel set in a mild steel<br />

frame. This technique uses fine glass powders that blend and flow<br />

creating a wonderful organic feel to the glass. Again, the frame was<br />

designed and made by Ted Edley. Not only does it look amazing in the<br />

sunlight, it packs a visual punch in the snow too.<br />

Ten Moons Sisterhood<br />

NEST welcomes you to Motherhood Retreats<br />

We know how hard motherhood can be and how tired it<br />

can make us feel, as well as knowing how hard it can be<br />

to find time to take care of you. With this in mind,<br />

we decided to curate a day retreat just<br />

for mothers - whether you are in the<br />

antenatal or postnatal period of your<br />

motherhood, you are WELCOME.<br />

We hold space for you to be you in the<br />

company of our Ten Moons Sisterhood.<br />

<strong>The</strong> day begins with a warm welcome of<br />

hot drinks and pastries as you enter our<br />

‘hygge’-inspired sanctuary. <strong>The</strong> morning<br />

is filled with talks and discussions as<br />

well as meditation, gentle yoga and<br />

opportunity to weave in the ancient<br />

wisdom of crafting in community. <strong>The</strong>re<br />

will be a delicious plant-based, homecooked<br />

Dorset lunch inspired by the<br />

season, followed by home-baked treats<br />

in the afternoon. Our spa space will be<br />

open, with our brilliant therapist Zoe on hand to offer<br />

you a divine reflexology treatment or dreamy facial, all<br />

included in your ticket price. Aimee will be sharing her<br />

mothering-by-the-moon yoga practices, and Lucy will<br />

be taking private 1:1 consultations throughout the day<br />

(usual investment price £65). In addition, the brilliant<br />

Faye from Play & Bloom, qualified<br />

Nanny and forest school leader, will be<br />

there to take care of your little one as<br />

and when you need, with our in-house<br />

crêche service. We close our day with a<br />

beautiful mother-blessing ceremony.<br />

It is going to be a day for you to be<br />

mothered. With downtime too for<br />

reading and journaling, we know you<br />

will leave feeling refreshed, revived and,<br />

most importantly, nourished from the<br />

inside out.<br />

This part of womanhood was never<br />

supposed to be walked alone. Having a<br />

baby is hard; hard on the heart, the body<br />

and the mind. It’s also hard being a<br />

mother and dealing with everything life sends your way.<br />

It can affect mood, relationships, worthiness and so<br />

much more, but what if this wild and beautiful ride could<br />


e shared, and worries could be shared? This beautiful<br />

retreat is an opportunity to breathe. To come as you<br />

are for a big day of love, nourishment and movement.<br />

We want you to remember the goddess you are, feel<br />

powerful in your position as a mother and know you<br />

are not alone. A space is held for you at the gorgeous<br />

Launceston Farm, Dorset, to spend journeying back to<br />

you.<br />

Book your space now for only £50. We cannot wait to<br />

welcome you.<br />

family from pregnancy right through to when your<br />

little one starts school. With a team of highly qualified<br />

consultants, NEST can support you from packing a<br />

Cycling Season<br />

Pedal through <strong>Summer</strong> at the EBIKE Cafe, Weymouth with the<br />

help of the government-backed Cycle Scheme<br />


With this summer comes the opportunity to<br />

enjoy the outdoors in a new way. <strong>The</strong> EBIKE Cafe on<br />

Custom House Quay in Weymouth, known for being the<br />

town’s hippest cafe and eBike sales and experience<br />

centre, is making it easier than ever to get outside<br />

and soak up the summer sun. With the support of the<br />

government-backed Cycle Scheme, the EBIKE Cafe is the<br />

perfect place to start your summer adventures.<br />

<strong>The</strong> Cycle Scheme is a government initiative allowing<br />

employees to purchase an eBike or bicycle and<br />

accessories through salary sacrifice, reducing the cost<br />

of the purchase. <strong>The</strong> scheme is designed to encourage<br />

more people to cycle to work, reducing traffic congestion<br />

and improving overall health and well-being.<br />

Under the scheme, an employee chooses an eBike/bike<br />

and accessories, which are then ordered and paid for by<br />

the employer. <strong>The</strong> employee then pays for it through a<br />

salary sacrifice arrangement, where the cost is deducted<br />

from their gross salary, reducing the overall cost of the<br />

purchase. This means the employee saves money on<br />

the cost and also benefits from the savings on National<br />

Insurance contributions.<br />

<strong>The</strong> scheme is open to all UK employees, and there<br />

are no restrictions on the type of bike that can be<br />

purchased. This makes it an ideal option for those<br />

considering purchasing an eBike from the EBIKE Cafe.<br />


With the added assistance of an electric motor, eBikes<br />

make cycling to work even more accessible and<br />

enjoyable, especially for those who live in hilly areas<br />

or have longer commutes. Overall, the Cycle Scheme<br />

is a fantastic opportunity for employees to purchase<br />

an eBike and accessories at a reduced cost while also<br />

promoting the benefits of cycling.<br />

You can find a helpful calculator on the EBIKE Cafe’s<br />

website by following this link ebikecafe.co.uk Here, you<br />

will be able to see how much money you can save. <strong>The</strong><br />

Cycle Scheme can be used in conjunction with other<br />

offers available at the EBIKE Cafe.<br />

Why purchase an eBike?<br />

• Easier pedalling: eBikes have electric motors that<br />

provide assistance when pedalling, making it easier<br />

to ride up hills and in headwinds<br />

• Longer range: eBikes can travel further distances<br />

than traditional bicycles, thanks to their<br />

rechargeable batteries<br />

• Convenience: eBikes offer more convenience than<br />

• traditional bicycles, as they don’t require as much<br />

physical exertion and can be used for longer trips<br />

• Speed: eBikes can travel at higher speeds than<br />

traditional bicycles, allowing for quicker commutes<br />

• Comfort: eBikes often feature more comfortable<br />

seats and upright handlebars, reducing fatigue and<br />

discomfort during long rides<br />

• Environmentally friendly: eBikes produce zero<br />

emissions and are a more environmentally friendly<br />

mode of transportation than cars or motorcycles<br />

EBIKE CAFE @ Deheers is open seven days a week, from<br />

9am to 4pm, on the ground floor of Deheers, 9A Custom<br />

House Quay, Weymouth, DT4 8BG.<br />

Sarah Dale is a registered nurse who built her business<br />

on a strong foundation of expert training and complete<br />

care. SDA is recommended by GPs and dermatologists<br />

Our best skin advise is: protect your skin from the<br />

sun and other harmful rays. It’s a subject we’re truly<br />

passionate about. Sun protection should be a part of<br />

everyone’s daily skincare regime, regardless of time of<br />

year and weather. <strong>The</strong>re are plenty of facts to back up<br />

our advice:<br />

• UVA is present in daylight all year round, penetrating<br />

cloud and glass<br />

• UVA makes up 95% of the sun’s rays and, as a<br />

longer wavelength, it penetrates deeper into the skin<br />

than UVB1,2<br />

• High Energy Visible Light, commonly known as Blue<br />

Light, is proven to more harmful than UVA<br />

• UV is responsible for up to 80% of skin ageing<br />

So, it’s clear – no matter what time of year or what<br />

you’re doing, we encourage you to protect your skin<br />

today for your best skin tomorrow. Fortunately, we’ve<br />

got you covered with our fantastic Heliocare Range.<br />

Nothing protects your skin like Heliocare 360˚. It’s<br />

revolutionary formulation not only shields the skin’s<br />

surface from damage, but also defends the skin from<br />

within with the unique and powerful Fernblock FC. This<br />

unrivalled combination means your skin will not only<br />

have the maximum protection against UVA, UVB, visible<br />

light and infrared-A, but also the free radicals caused by<br />

other environmental challenges too.<br />

<strong>The</strong>re’s a Heliocare 360˚ product which will suit every<br />

one of our clients.<br />

We look forward to welcoming you to our clinic in<br />

the future. Come and meet our reception team<br />

James Hart, Director, says, “Since the start of the<br />

pandemic, working from home has never been so<br />

popular. We recognise, however, that many professionals<br />

occasionally require a more formal working environment.<br />

This is where coworking spaces are invaluable. Our<br />

pay-as-you-go pricing for desk hire and meeting room<br />

hire makes our facilities affordable and accessible for<br />

everyone, with no long-term financial commitments<br />

during these turbulent times.”<br />

Venue Hire<br />

Not just a coworking space, Purple Office offers full<br />

venue hire for any kind of formal or informal gathering,<br />

be it a company team-building event, regional team<br />

meeting, educational talk or hobby club. With a range<br />

of versatile seating options, the venue can comfortably<br />

seat 25-30 people. <strong>The</strong>re is a full working kitchen, or the<br />

office team can work closely with local caterers to help<br />

you create your perfect event.<br />

Purple Office recently hosted local charity Weldmar<br />

Hospicecare, supplying them the perfect space for their<br />

team day:<br />

“Purple Office provided the perfect solution when we<br />

were seeking space for our team to meet for a creative<br />

and strategic day away from our offices. <strong>The</strong> flexible<br />

space was ideal for our needs. <strong>The</strong> stunning meeting<br />

room and lots of break out areas meant we could<br />

maximise the day. <strong>The</strong> informal and fully equipped<br />

kitchen and breakfast bar area was a great facility,<br />

providing the ideal place to mingle and chat during<br />

breaks and lunch. <strong>The</strong> IT facilities were spot on too.”<br />

- April Whitehead, Major Gifts and Partnerships Lead at<br />

Weldmar.<br />
