SO45 Online – The inspiration

The idea for SO45 Online came from the Isle of Wight Festival last year. If you were there you will remember it was a little damp and muddy underfoot on the last day. I just remember seeing everyone in the picture above from ages 18-50, all smiling, singing and enjoying a warm cider or two. Different ages, male or female, from Hythe, DP, Holbury, Langley, Blackfield or Fawley, all enjoying themselves in the pouring rain. I’m not sure if its the refinery making everyone mad but the only people outside the bar were from SO45!!

From there the idea was born, we have a great little part of England, a part of Hampshire, a part of Southampton we can call our own, SO45. From Dibden roundabout, down to the boundaries with the New Forest and the Solent.

I just felt there was something special we could achieve for the benefit of all the local community and people that work in this great area.

From all the team of sponsors of SO45 Online we hope you enjoy the site, it has been built for you to use every day, every week!
