Welcome to the late spring and early summer edition of Waterside. It seems as the weather is now improving and it is good to see more people out and about enjoying the weather and the waterside locations, attractions and entertainments that this area is proud of.

Included within the magazine are lists of what is on and places to visit around the area. New movies are always of interest and Waterside has featured information regarding two of the movies that are being shown within our area.

The several Marinas that are in our area not only provide a safe birth for the boats both big and small but are also a great place to visit. Port Solent for example has many excellent restaurants where you can dine indoors and, weather permitting, al fresco. The many shops also give the diversity not found on the high street. Well worth a visit during the day and for a great evening out.

 The D Day Museum re-opened on Friday March 30th and tells the story of courage, comradeship, sacrifice and secrecy. Many of the original exhibits are still presented within the museum, with two spectacular audio-visual displays that capture the scale of D Day itself. This is

 certainly worth a visit and is worthy of a visit by the whole family.

Waterside continues to include articles that should be of interest to a wide range of readers with the aim of being informative and entertaining. As the weather starts to improve thoughts also turn to fashion and the new look for summer 2018. Featured are just some of the fashion ideas that are coming to the high street.

We continue to give just a few tips that may guide you in the garden, as this is now the time of year that serious planning and planting of your garden happens. Hard work but worth it when you sit in the garden enjoying the displays that nature gives us. For those who may enjoy a drink in the evening Waterside has included a feature about Watercress Gin. The feature is interesting and informative.

We hope you enjoy the magazine and visit us again in the future.
