What community means to some residents in PBST – (Pokesdown, Boscombe, Southbourne and Tuckon)
Foode Fusionist – Coming Soon
This is a short video, supported by Bournemouth University, where a few of us from the local area talk about what I call PBST (Pokesdown, Boscombe, Southbourne and Tuckton) means to them. Tony Hughes was the powerhouse organiser behind the Southbourne Revival and Frankenfest events. Fiona McArthur is also a Southbourne resident and has been involved in many local events over the years and still is through her work. Jim Dawson is the owner of Jolly Vintner Too, a wine shop in Pokesdown. Ben Smith is an accessibility campaigner that has been one of the voices behind the campaign to have lifts installed at Pokesdown Station. Harry Seccombe is the owner of Chaplins Bar in Boscombe and a big campaigner of all things Boscombe. Simon Fernand is a singer songwriter and penned the Uplift Pokesdown Station song and video. Before anyone pulls us up on the “South West Trains” name again, a little artistic licence was used to make it rhyme. A big thank you to Josh Pyman from Keylight Films for bringing it all together, and Gary Williams for the drone footage. Whilst we kept the video short for this release, we will look to upload more of the original interviews.
