A modern take on luxury hampers THACKRAY BROWN

THE ANGEL HOTEL

Under new ownership

Your favourite community lifestyle magazine – PRICELESS


Warners Midlands would like to wish everyone in Bourne and surrounding villages a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year


Welcome to your December issue... A very warm welcome to this, our last issue of 2021.

A

s a new year draws closer, it’s time to look back and reflect on what has been another particularly challenging year for many.

Mass vaccinations against Covid-19 have certainly slowed down the pandemic’s deadly progress, and we have managed to return to a form of normality. Next year may even see some of us searching for our passports and getting stir-crazy in airport queues again!

Inside Highlights

Huge thanks go to everyone who has helped us in any way this year, especially our advertisers and contributors, with their regular features, wonderful advice, and suggestions. But it is you, our readers, who make everything worthwhile for us, so many thanks to you all. Best wishes for Christmas and for 2022 – good luck, but most importantly, good health!

Claire x

Let me be the first to wish you all good health and happiness for Christmas and the new year. Just in case your crackers haven’t got any cracking jokes in them, try these for sighs! The police called and asked where my sons had been between 3 and 5. I told them, “Headstart Nursery”. I dreamed I was drowning in an ocean of orange pop – clearly a Fanta Sea! Amongst many inspirational people we lost in 2021, one was Eddie Jaku on October 12th, aged 101. This survivor of the Holocaust had written in his memoirs, (entitled “The Happiest Man on Earth”) the following beautiful words, “May you always have love to share, may you always have health to spare and may you always have friends that care.” Enjoy the read!

British Artisanal Hampers for Show-Stopping Gifts hackray Brown offers a modern take on the luxury hamper. Showcasing local produce, hand-picked from artisans across the UK (from the Orkneys to the Scilly Isles), these are hampers designed for food lovers.

No mass-produced or white labelled goods, nothing found in supermarkets. Most of Thackray Brown’s producers only specialise in one area; some are heritage items such as the Melton Mowbray pork pie, others are award-winning innovations, such as vegan cheeses made with fermented nuts, but they all put craft and quality first. Moving away from imported wicker baskets with their high carbon footprint, Thackray Brown celebrate the wonders of nature with a new concept of hampers. Made with a composite of plant waste and mushrooms, these “mycelium” hampers are the first of their kind on the market, and compost in forty days. They each come with tasting notes, detailing the produce inside, a handwritten card, and a packet of wildflower seeds to be planted with the mycelium hampers for a carbon-positive result. For their biggest hampers, the wooden chests are made from reclaimed timber, built by “New

Life Wood” in Essex, a social enterprise which provides skills to ex-offenders and addicts. The hampers can be personalised by the user to suit the recipients’ taste, selecting from a series of collections. Example collections include ‘The Meat Lover’, ‘Afternoon Tea’ and ‘A Different Kettle of Fish’. Alternatively, there are some pre-designed hampers with a selection of crowd-pleasers. Prices start at £85 and include UK mainland delivery. Thackray Brown hampers are perfect for both personal and corporate gifts, where the buyer is after something extra special, for a gift that truly reflects the value of their relationship with the recipient.

Make someone feel very special this Christmas with a luxury British hamper. Design yours today at www.thackraybrown.co.uk or call

ANGEL HOTEL UNDER NEW OWNERSHIP

he Angel Hotel in Bourne Market Place has a new owner, who will need no introduction to the many regular customers who continue to keep the hotel’s thriving coffee shop a hive of activity. Two years already in her post as manager, Jess Greatorex needed little persuasion to take over the business when Carol Schofield decided to back down after eight successful years at the helm. Carol sees it as “semi-retirement”, in order to make the transition for Jess as seamless as possible. Although still only thirty-one, Jess has already gained a broad sweep of experience in the hospitality sector. Her early days saw Jess as a chef at the prestigious Hambleton Hall, followed by a spell as Deputy Manager of a hotel in Bourton-on-theWater in the Cotswolds before she moved to Bourne. Refurbishments are now almost complete for the spacious Coach House function room, which will be hosting several suppers, dances, and parties in the

weeks ahead. A perfect venue for wedding and birthday celebrations, the Coach House is only a part of the Angel’s offering though. The ever-popular coffee shop provides hot drinks, light lunches, full meals, allday breakfasts, cakes, and cream teas, whilst the twelve beautifully appointed en suite hotel bedrooms complete the picture, all of which represents a wonderful challenge for Jess and her friendly, hard-working team, whom she insists are central to making a success of the business.

OPEN MONDAY-SATURDAY 8am-5pm

The Griffin Inn Wins Coveted First Place in National Television Show

O

n Wednesday November 10th, viewers of Channel 4’s “Four in a Bed” show were able to discover for themselves what many of us locals have already known for years, that Irnham’s fabulous Griffin Inn ranks right up there amongst the best in the business!

The programme sees the irrepressible Jamie and Leila Benton-Jones invite three other bed-andbreakfast-hosting couples to the Griffin to try and prove that theirs is the best in terms of quality but principally, for its value for money. The three other couples then reciprocate with their own establishments and a final decision is reached, once the visits have all been completed, a lengthy process which actually took place in March this year.

programme being shown, bedroom bookings had “gone sky high!” Those rooms are a delight and, at £125 per night to include a most memorable breakfast, then well worth it! The excellent hosting skills shown by Jamie and Leila were also of paramount importance when deciding on who should take away the honours.

The ‘winners’ come away with no specific first prize, but Jamie is well aware of, and grateful for, the valuable publicity an exercise like this can bring; indeed, within days of the

Diddly Squat

A Year on the Farm Pull on your wellies, grab your flat cap and join Jeremy Clarkson in this hilarious and fascinating, behind-the-scenes look at the farm we’re all obsessed with. In an idyllic spot, offering picturesque views across the Cotswolds, bustling hedgerows, and natural springs, it’s the perfect plot of land for someone to delegate the actual farming to someone else, while he galivants around the world in cars. Until one day, Jeremy decided he would do the farming itself. Faced with suffocating red tape, biblical weather, local objections, a global pandemic, and his own frankly staggering ignorance of how to ‘do farming’, Jeremy soon realises that turning the farm around is going to take more than splashing out on a massive tractor.

Nature’s Treasures BY BEN HOARE “Nature’s Treasures” takes you on a tour of our planet through commonplace, but incredible objects made by nature itself. This book is for every inquisitive child who loves to spot things when exploring outside and wants to know more about the wonderful and mysterious natural world. Learn how bristly mouths help huge whales capture tiny animals, how minute scales make butterflies shine in the sunlight, and how studying a leaf skeleton can tell us how it transports food. Objects are shown with truly stunning photography and colourful illustrations to help explain the science behind them.

BY J.R. THORP

Inspired by Shakespeare’s King Lear, this breath-taking debut novel tells the story of the most famous woman ever written out of literary history. “I am the queen of two crowns, banished fifteen years, the famed and gilded woman, bad-luck baleful girl, mother of three small animals, now gone. I am fifty-five years old. I am Lear’s wife. I am here.”

Words from the Mayor

COUNCILLOR PAUL FELLOWS

Remembrance Sunday

I

t was an absolute privilege for Judi and I to stand with the Mayor’s Cadet and representatives from the British Legion in the centre of town as more groups than ever marched past on Remembrance Sunday.

I could not be prouder of our town than when I stand at the War Memorial on this particular occasion. This year there were more wreaths laid, and more people filling the gardens around the Memorial, than ever. It was truly awe-inspiring to see a community coming together, as ours did on that Sunday, for a common purpose of remembrance and shared reflection. It demonstrated so well the positivity that is Bourne.

November is ‘the season of mists and mellow fruitfulness’ and, for so many of us, the slow build-up to the wonderfully ‘overblown’ celebration of Christmas. As you read this, our town’s Christmas lights will have been switched on and I would like to thank everyone who has contributed in making this happen once more. We have probably never been more ready to celebrate Christmas than this year. I would like to take this opportunity on behalf of Bourne Town Council to wish you all a truly splendid Christmas! Have a great time and stay safe.

For those further afield, regular live streamed performances will be available to watch from the comfort of home for those warm winter nights in. To find out more and book your tickets visit www.easternangles.co.uk

Shadow has been in training since November 2020, when she was only a few weeks old. She very quickly became the star attraction at school! Mrs Breidenbach, the school’s Pastoral Lead, works with Shadow in partnership with the educational staff and trained therapists. Together, they help progress the children’s educational, social, emotional, and physical development by working with individual pupils and groups, using different strategies, such as art, reading and Lego therapy. As part of Shadow’s training, she now “meets and greets” every pupil who comes into her Pastoral

room and can follow their instructions to sit, give her paw, to shake ‘hello or goodbye’, then gently take a treat. Shadow also interacts with pupils as she walks round the school and is popular with everyone. One pupil stated, “Dogs sense when people are sad so, when Shadow senses that you might not be feeling your best, she lets you stroke her and helps to make you feel better.” If you would like more information about joining Thurlby C.P. Academy, there are places available in some year groups. Please e-mail enquiries@thurlby.lincs.sch.uk.

The school also has a new Facebook page ‘Thurlby Community Primary Academy’ where you can find more information.

If you would like to visit Thurlby Academy, visitors are welcome at any time and will be sure of a very warm welcome. For more information call 01778 423311 or follow Thurlby Community Primary Academy on

Race Cars and Railways

A

neglected flowerbed has recently been transformed into a tribute to two very different forms of Bourne’s transport history. The makeover not only pays tribute to the glory days of the town’s motor racing past, when champion driver Graham Hill drove the Bourne-based British Racing Motors (BRM) team to the 1962 Formula 1 world championship but, being situated on the site of the former Bourne East signal box in South Road, the design also pays homage to the impact of the railway on the development of the town in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

The display was designed by Debbie Cooke, of Creative Garden Designs, and is a joint project between Bourne Town Council and The Len Pick Trust, with additional funding from the Owen Family Trust, Hall and Hall, and the BRM Association. “We are always anxious to improve the town and work regularly with the Trust who have, for a number of years helped sponsor the planters and hanging baskets in the town,” said Town Clerk, Ian Sismey. “When South Kesteven District Council relinquished maintenance of the flower bed, we approached the Trust again and they agreed something special should be created because of its prominent position on one of the main roads of the town.” At the heart of the display is a large-scale silhouette of the 1962 World Formula One title winning BRM car, known as ‘Old Faithful’. Dick Salmon and John Sismey, the two surviving team mechanics from that victory, recently paid a visit to the site. Inevitably, old memories came shooting back and Dick particularly remembered the frantic work by the team all through the night to cannibalise three engines to help rebuild the engine which went on to win the championship for Graham and the team later in the day. “Yes, we did have a small celebration after the race”, Dick and John admitted!

The laser-cut silhouette was cut in one piece by Billingboroughbased Repfab Engineering and demonstrates the advances in technology which have taken place over the years since the first train steamed into Bourne Station. Pictured here is the Bourne East signal box standing on what is now the corner of South Road and Coggles Causeway and the site of the flower bed. Can you imagine queuing there today for one of the forty or fifty trains that passed over the crossing each day and then waiting for the signalman to descend from his box to open the gates by hand?

Thurlby School Welcomes

IMPERIAL COLLEGE LONDON FOR SOME SUPER SCIENCE! On Friday November 5th, Thurlby C.P. Academy’s Year 5 and Year 6 children were lucky to experience the wonderful world of science with Oundle School’s STEM Roadshow, which was presented in collaboration with Imperial College, London, and supported by the OPEN Learning Partnership. These events are intended to inspire children and excite them using the amazing worlds of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). Aran and Ellie, two of Thurlby’s Year 6 pupils, thought that the event was wonderful, commenting,

“A scientist completed a workshop with us on astrophysics. The first experiment was to imitate the smoke rings created when a rocket blasts off, by containing smoke inside a chamber and forcefully pushing it out to create the ring. It was incredible to see! Next, he used a special camera, which could only see red light, to view the veins through his hand to show how satellites take photographs of planets in detail. We were also shown videos of failed and successful rocket landings. The whole afternoon was absolutely astonishing!’’

Happy Christmas Chemicals

B

eing relaxed helps your brain create ‘happy chemicals’. These chemicals in our brain flow better when we are relaxed because, when we feel calm and relaxed, we remember things in a positive way, and this makes us feel good. We remember the little good things which happen in the day or things we are grateful for in our life. It is quite a simple formula, but perhaps so simple that it often gets overlooked and not noticed. So, simply, when we are relaxed, we are not stressed! No one can be internally relaxed and stressed at the same time. If you are stressed, you will not be releasing happy chemicals, but what you will be doing is releasing the stressed chemicals, which are adrenalin, cortisol, and histamine. These lower our immune system and make us age more quickly. We can train our brain through learning how to relax and keeping the habit of ‘happy relaxation’ active to think ourselves towards happiness,

confidence, compassion, resilience, and success. By relaxing your brain for ten minutes of deep relaxation and using positive visualisations of your memory creates a powerful cocktail of magical memories, that trigger the happy chemicals to give your brain a top buzz. A Guide to our Happy Chemicals: These are the chemicals our thoughts and memories produce ● Thinking of something that makes you

smile = SEROTONIN = Happiness

● Remembering a loving moment =

OXYTOCIN = Compassion

● Reliving a success or an achievement

= DOPAMINE = Success

● A memory of bravery or courage =

ENDORPHINE = Confidence

The brain cannot tell the difference between imagination and reality, so begin to create the happy chemicals today.

Be a Cracker This Chri Another year has passed and this time, no Covid restrictions are in place to stop us socialising with family and friends.

e have invested and completed training in many new areas of aesthetics, ranging from our everyday anti-wrinkle treatments and dermal fillers to more advanced skin boosters, such as the PROFHILO and JALUPRO options.

3 areas of anti-wrinkle treatment £200

These treat all fine lines and are the only fillers known to improve skin tone, hydration, and give an amazing facial glow within three to five days of your appointment. They are called “liquid gold” for a reason! Both smokers’ lines and the fine lines which occur around the eyes are synonymous with ageing. Jalupro has produced fantastic results in reversing these signs and has proven to be our most popular treatment by far. We also offer the injectable dermal filler, RADIESSE, which is hand rejuvenation at its best, allowing your hands to match your face in terms of ageing. It treats sun-damaged, wrinkly, veiny hands, allowing the correction of volume loss. This provides an immediate lift and tightens the skin, lasting up to a year or more.

Profhilo BEFORE

‘Cheek fillers’, the newest addition to our treatment list, have been very well received by our clientele. Naturally, as we get older, the face tends to become squarer as volume is lost. By strategically administering filler in this area, it adds volume and returns the cheeks to a higher, fuller, and more youthful position. The results are immediate and can last anything up to eighteen months. AQUALYX is a stand-alone product and has proven to be a massive success … with all clients reporting fat loss and weight loss, especially on areas that they have found difficult to reduce through diet and exercise. Stubborn areas of fat are subjected to a high volume of injections, which are all pain-free, contouring and tightening the skin as they go with no downtime needed. They are simple, effective, and produce dramatic results within two to three treatments. Once the cells have been treated, they are permanently gone which is another great incentive to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Legal Corner

Legal Services in a Modern Time

I

WORDS FROM RICHARD WOOD

t’s now twenty-two years since the turn of the century. Double and Megson, having formed in 1978, has clearly seen many changes in the last forty-four years. What is still true is that all of us need legal services now and probably always will (even if a robot tries to play the role!) It was once famously asked “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?”, a 1968 science fiction novel by Philip K. Dick. Whether a “bot” could count the issues in a legal case is a moot point. It is the communication and sensitivity that makes the difference to a client. The eye contact and reassurance count in any professional context, be it lawyer, doctor, dentist or independent financial adviser. Double and Megson believe that the provision of local legal services is best for the client. Our fee earners offer rounded legal advice, sometimes crossing different legal subjects on an integrated

basis. The firm has acted over many years for local businesses and families (sometimes three generations of one family). So, knowing the solicitor is as important as knowing the client, and vice versa. It is worrying that there have been recently, unknown persons walking the streets locally purporting to offer advice to unsuspecting parties. If, any of us need advice we should seek out those who are both regulated and insured. Our firm believes in finding out what is at the heart of a client’s instructions and acting efficiently to find a client-focused outcome. We will always offer a down-to-earth friendly approach to put clients at their ease. Great care and caution are required when considering what is said on the internet. Certainly, some benefit can be obtained from government websites but otherwise there can be significant risk.

‘The Liberty Lunch’ to celebrate our community champions and those people that go the extra mile

BY RICHARD ASH CHARTERED FINANCIAL PLANNER AND DIRECTOR You may know one of those ‘champions’ who always helps where they can or goes that extra mile for a neighbour, a stranger or a friend, and if you do then we would like to hear from you. Our plan is to offer a modest reward of lunch out at a local pub, diner, coffee shop or eatery up to the value of £100. We would ask that this offer is taken up locally to support our fantastic local businesses. We will select a monthly ‘champion’ from any nominations we receive. When contacting us, we would ask that you say who they are, how you feel they have positively contributed towards our community, and provide their contact information, having asked their permission to do so. Please see this as being a good thing, something to celebrate, a way in which we at Liberty Partnership can celebrate our community. Sadly, we will not be able to recognise everyone, which we hope you all understand.

Post-Christmas Separations. Making the Right Decisions.

C

hristmas is not always “festivities and fun”. During holidays, people have time to pause and reflect, and Christmas arguments can be “the straw that broke the camel’s back”, particularly when the past eighteen months have seen disturbed daily routines and much greater pressures on people. Many couples wait until after the festivities are over before commencing proceedings, hence the first working Monday in January is sometimes dubbed ‘National Divorce Day’!

Free Family Law Clinic

Free advice on all family matters including divorce, separation, child contact, finances, and civil partnerships The first Monday of every month from 9am - 12noon Wake House Community Centre, Bourne

If you are considering a divorce, there are many things to consider: Will we have to sell the family home? Where will I live? Will I be able to manage financially? What arrangements will need to be made for the children? What about my spouse’s pension and joint assets/liabilities?

Property News

Sales Volumes Higher? BY JASON TREADWELL, MANAGING DIRECTOR

T

he Bourne property market continues to ride the wave as we head towards 2022. Although softening, demand remains stronger than a year ago. Sales volumes to date in 2021 are 16% above the five-year average (Zoopla).

Despite rising inflation and likely interest rate rises, the latest forecasts from the Office for Budget Responsibility predict price growth will continue, albeit at a more sustainable level, through to 2026.

Property prices are predicted to rise by 3.2% during 2022, and there is now no sign in the forecasts of prices falling. Sales volumes may well eclipse 2007 by the year end, with sales in the region of £1.3 million in 2022/23, 8% higher than the longer-term average (2015/16 to 2019/2020). Source: Dataloft, OBR, Zoopla, HMRC. Are you looking to capitalise on Bourne’s highestever property prices? If so, then give our team a call today on 01778 422567 to let us help you capture the best possible price for your home!

Another reason to support our High Street this Christmas BY COLEEN EVERITT, ALTO ELECTRICAL LIMITED

A

s Christmas closes in on us, and many are suffering financially after a couple of tough years, I wanted to just remind you to make sure that any electrical things you buy meet British standards. It can sometimes be tempting to buy things online that are better priced than those that are on our high street, sometimes even knowing that they are not genuine or that they may not meet British standards. I have often been asked to fit or look at electrical items that have been bought from bargain priced websites. Some of the things I have found have been dangerous; we have even written reports to help the buyer recover their money but, unfortunately, this is often unsuccessful. We have been asked to fit lights and the most basic

Domestic

principles of the electrical safety regulations are not even met, and what starts as somebody trying to save some pennies ends up costing them much more when they are unable to return the item and then still have to purchase it somewhere else. This is actually the ‘best-case scenario’; the other scenario is that that item is used without any concerns being identified, and then resulting in an electric shock, or even a fire that devastates your home. We can so easily be pulled into trying to save money as expectations are so high for Christmas today, but it is much more important that you and your family stay safe. So, shop safe this Christmas and make sure that everything you buy meets British safety standards. Finally, a reminder to please make sure you enter our Christmas Lights Competition!

Will & Probate Services

2021: The Year to Protect You and Your Family

A

ADVICE FROM NICK ASH, MANAGING DIRECTOR WILL AND PROBATE SERVICES

t the start of this year, it seemed appropriate to spend the year encouraging people to get their affairs in order and … guess what – it worked! During 2021, more families than ever before were helped by us and, if you were one of them, I would simply like to say thank you for trusting us with your planning.

best gift you could give your children is for you to sort out your will. The things that we get to deal with during December tend to be stuff that simply can’t wait, helping families dealing with a death of a relative, or drawing up legal documents for those at the very end of their lives.

December is a funny month; nobody wants to write their will or sort out their Power of Attorney because there are more important things to concentrate on – we get that. I am not about to tell you that the best present you could actually get your parents is a Power of Attorney or the

I will be back in January with what we can do for you in 2022. Don’t forget that we are here for you if anything urgent pops up, or if you do want to arrange that very unusual Christmas present!

But it’s not all doom and gloom though. December is the month when we get to have a good rest and enjoy the festivities with our families. So, that’s how I and all the team here at Will & Probate Services would like to end this month’s article and 2021, by wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas and a Happy and Prosperous New Year.

yourself from falling victim to online shopping or auction fraud: • If you’re making a purchase from a website or person you don’t know and trust, carry out some research first. Read reviews or check the seller’s feedback before going ahead. • Use a payment method that offers buyer protection, such as a credit card if you have one, as most major credit card providers will help you get your money back if the item is faulty or damaged, or if it never arrives. • Make sure you have a strong password for your email. You should also enable two-factor authentication (2FA), where possible, which gives your online account additional protection by double checking that you really are the person you claim to be, when logging in. • Be extra vigilant using Marketplace, eBay and Gumtree as these are also on the hit list for criminals. At home, seasonal security is essential: For opportunist thieves, visible presents under the tree, open car boots full of shopping, while loads are being taken into the house, and even the possibility of an unlocked garage or parcels left behind bins, are rich pickings. Remember to check your alarm and never leave doors, windows or garages unlocked. • Don’t leave presents in full view – either in the home or in the back seat of the car. • Keep a light on indoors and outdoors if you are out visiting friends or family. • Consider fitting motion detector security lighting. If you are expecting parcels or deliveries whilst you are out, try and arrange for them to be delivered to an alternative address instead of them being hidden. If buying bikes and / or electronic equipment for Christmas – mark them with your postcode. For any home security improvements, we have locksmiths, alarm and CCTV installers, electricians and many other traders who can help. Visit www.safelocaltrades.com. DE CE M BE R 2 0 2 1

Healthcare

Late Diagnosis Costs Livelihoods and Lives!

Nick Rossington, Director of Resurgam Health Ltd, Appointed Representative of WPA Healthcare Practice Plc.

I

t was the late diagnosis of our elevenyear-old daughter’s bone cancer in February 2017, following twenty-three fruitless appointments over a six-month period, that prompted a desire to help people have a choice in their medical provision. We didn’t have health insurance at the time, but it was only when we were at our wits’ end and decided to take Alice for a private consultation that her disease was diagnosed.

Thankfully, following eight months of chemotherapy treatment and limb salvage surgery on the NHS, Alice is doing well and enjoying being back at school. However, the whole experience brought home to me, first-hand, how devastating a late diagnosis and delayed treatment can be – and how it can cost livelihoods, and lives! My daughter’s chances of having osteosarcoma were one in three million. There is a chance, therefore, that any of us can suffer from an illness at any time. We learned that an early diagnosis and prompt treatment in a hospital of your choice is what having health insurance gives you. Following a career in financial services, I became a local Appointed Representative of WPA

Healthcare Practice Plc in September 2018. As a Healthcare Partner, I provide advice on WPA Health Insurance Policies only, and how they can protect your family and business. After all, we insure our houses and cars, but aren’t our lives, and livelihoods more important? For individuals/families, having private medical insurance gives you the confidence of having access to an early specialist consultation, or where required, prompt treatment. Most importantly, you give yourselves the best chance of being treated as soon as possible. For businesses, our Enterprise Flexible Benefits product provides access to prompt private hospital and specialist treatment for the business owner and employees, thereby looking to improve employee productivity and reducing staff absenteeism due to ill-health. Whether you are interested in family or business private medical insurance, please contact me to discuss your options further. Please note, preexisting and long-term medical conditions are generally not covered. Applications are subject to medical underwriting and a maximum joining age applies on some policies.”

Mortgage Advice

Navigating the Home Buying Process

B

ADVICE FROM LUCA PALUMBO, MORTGAGE & PROTECTION CONSULTANT

uying a new home is an exciting time, but it can also be a little intimidating if you don’t have the right knowledge and support to help you through the process.

When you are navigating the home buying process for the first time, there are bound to be some obstacles to overcome. But many of the most common first-time-buyer mistakes can be avoided if you are aware of them.

1

Avoid Mortgage Rejection A common mistake is applying for a mortgage without first checking your credit report. This could lead to your application being rejected for issues that are easy to fix. You can obtain your credit report from a service such as Experian or Equifax. If there are incorrect items on your credit report, you can ask for them to be removed. If there are items that are correct, but not representative of your current financial situation (for example, an unpaid bill during a previous period of unemployment), you can also ask to add a notice of correction.

2

Avoid Going Over Budget Often, first-time-buyers have saved enough for their deposit but haven’t considered all the extra costs which put a strain on their budget, things such as solicitors’ fees or Stamp Duty Land Tax if the property is over the threshold.

3

Avoid Costly Property Problems As a first-time-buyer, you might not be aware of all the things that can go wrong with a home, and they’re not always visible. An old boiler may need to be replaced, for example, costing thousands. It can help to take someone with more experience along to viewings, but they too might miss some issues. A professional survey, though it will cost several hundred pounds to arrange, will identify any potential issues and could save you a lot of money over the long term.

4

Avoid Going Through it All Alone Obtaining expert financial advice can help you to understand how much you can realistically afford to borrow and repay, so you don’t overstretch yourself. A professional mortgage broker can help you create a plan to save a bigger deposit, or a budget so that you can afford all your monthly mortgage repayments while continuing to save for the future. They will help you find an appropriate mortgage deal to minimise your monthly repayments and can give you access to a wider range of products than if you were to research the market yourself. It is also likely they will be connected to a professional network within the sector, and they may even be able to offer products that aren’t available to the general public. You will also be guided through the process of applying for a mortgage to avoid time-wasting rejections, get help with paperwork, and you won’t have to handle the application. In many cases, firsttime-buyers will easily recoup the cost of this expert mortgage advice in the savings it brings them.

*Your home may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on your mortgage*

SAND A sand consisting of fine rounded particles. This sand is the most common sand used in the construction industry for making renders and mortars due to its fine particle size creating a smooth easily worked product.

LIMESTONE Pure crushed Limestone. Is now widely used as a bedding layer for block paving applications where a SuDS bedding layer is required.

BALLAST Our All in Ballast is supplied in a 1000kg bulk bag and is a mixture of Sharp Sand and Gravel. Ballast is often used to make concrete.

GRAVEL A mixture of angular and rounded stones washed and passed through various screens to create aggregate. Widely used in the construction industry as a drainage medium.

MULCH Wood mulches are some of the most popular choices for gardeners, and for good reason. Wood mulch includes shredded bark, bark nuggets, and straw, and offer many benefits for your garden.
