About Solent Times

Solent Times provides news and views for the Solent Region from the New Forest in the West to Chichester in the East and inland as far as Winchester.

Solent Times was founded by Richard Hazelgrove to provide a clean news source uncluttered by too much advertising or paywalls.

‘Whilst advertising is, of course, essential to running an online newspaper it should not interfere with the experience of reading a story’

 Richard Hazelgrove.

Richard has been writing for more than 25 years and has experience in engineering, pharmacy, entertainment & logistics industries.
