We've recently started a new nostalgia Facebook group - We grew up in Bournemouth and Poole.

It is a group where you can share memories of the area - including Christchurch, Swanage, Wareham and Wimborne.

But we want it to be a place for you to discuss what you loved most about the area. And somewhere for people to see how the conurbation has changed, if they've just moved here.

We asked our members to finish a sentence for us when the group launched: You know you grew up in Bournemouth, Poole and Christchurch when you remember...

And these were the some of the results.

  • Lava and Ignite/Circo and Elements/Zoo and the Cage/Clouds and Zigzags
  • The Hampshire Centre
  • Charlie's Cars
  • Fortes restaurants
  • Trolley buses
