If the answer is yes, then the next question is: Have you heard of AmazonSmile? This is a recent initiative from Amazon that enables you to raise money for your chosen charity every time you buy something. It’s nothing to do with discounts or surcharges. It’s just that Amazon chooses to return some of its gargantuan profits in a way that we can exploit, or not, as we choose. Continue reading

In addition to studying law, Chilworth resident Jasmine Sandhu is proving to be something of an entrepreneur. Having discovered a passion for dance at a very early age, she has already met success when organising Bhangra/Bollywood Fusion dance classes in Southampton. Now she is set on repeating that by putting them on at Chilworth Hall, starting on 9th February.
In her own words: “I decided to start my dance business last summer and it’s gone really well – it pulled the Southampton community together, and we feel like a family. I aim to promote equality, diversity, mental wellness as well as physical fitness. Seeing happy faces and knowing how much students enjoy my class is the best feeling – dance is everything to me! It’s especially satisfying when parents tell me how much confidence their children have gained, as I can empathise with that from my own experience.”

Chilworth Hall’s management committee is keen to see if there is any way to improve the safety of the entrance/exit arrangement to the Hall’s car park. The car park and the driveway leading to it are part of the freehold of the Hall, and so the trustees on the committee are very much aware that they have a responsibility to try to limit the dangers that are becoming ever more apparent as traffic densities on the A27 continue to increase.. Several recent conversations about that have revealed there to be some misunderstandings and incorrect assumptions about the car park itself. Continue reading
