BROADCHURCH AND DORSET’S MAGNIFICENT COAST

CELEBRATING 10 YEARS OF DARREN NORTHEAST PR

Have you been gripped by the hit ITV crime drama, Broadchurch? It has, once again, taken the nation by storm and Dorset’s magnificent coastline has played a major role, from the cliffs to the cottages and from the sea to the beaches.

Leading Bournemouth PR Agency, Darren Northeast PR, hits a significant milestone this month, marking 10 years in business. Following on from their most successful year ever, this month marks the 10th anniversary of Darren Northeast PR. Darren Northeast PR was founded in February 2005 and since then has worked hard to establish their place as a thriving Bournemouth business at the forefront of Dorset’s PR industry.

The series has once more reminded people of the stunning coastline which is one of Britain’s most magnificent landscapes. Tom Williams Branch and Valuations Manager at YOUhome said “We have experienced an increase in property searches in the west bay area. Some looking for the beautiful scenic views to make a permanent move or as a holiday home. Second homes are proving very popular either as a buy to let or to rent out to tourists.” YOUhome has a selection of holiday homes set in the picturesque area of Mudeford where Broadchurch is often filmed. From young professionals to retirees these cottages provide a wonderful holiday home in an area which is simply stunning.

Hengistbury Head sits opposite Mudeford Quay and is an area which must be seen. Hengistbury Head incorporates many different habitats and supports a wide variety wildlife and rare plant species. It is a site of scientific interest and a major tourist attraction. Each year it attracts visitors from all over the world. YOUhome currently has a number of properties for sale along Dorset’s coast which would make a perfect holiday home, including: top end luxury lodge with seas view roof terrace; two bedroom top end luxury lodge with large balcony; three double bedroom fifth floor apartment with stunning sea views towards sandbanks

The agency has witnessed first-hand how PR agencies were among the first things to be cut by businesses when the Recession hit in 2008. Despite this, through great passion, persistence and innovation, the company succeeded where many failed and were able to weather the financial storm. Their work ethic aside, Darren Northeast PR attribute business networking as a crucial part in their development and growth as Managing Director, Darren Northeast, is keen to highlight: “Networking is a powerful resource, if you are willing to listen, people will get to know you. If they like you as a person they will want to work with you. We have met the majority of our clients through networking and it has played such a pivotal part in the success of DNPR.” In the last few years, Darren Northeast PR has gone from strength to strength and 2014 was DNPR’s most successful year yet. The company had both its best financial year to date, servicing a record number of clients, and took the step to become incorporated. Commenting on the success of the company, Darren has said:

BUY TO LET MARKET IS BOOMING; ESPECIALLY IN BOURNEMOUTH According to figures from Direct Line for Business, landlords in England are now earning in excess of £32 billion per year, or £2.7billion a month. In an separate study by Axa Business Insurance, 59% of tenants say they would prefer to buy but struggle to make the move onto the property ladder themselves as increasing house prices mean larger, and harder to save for, deposits.

Kate West, Divisional Lettings Director, for Goadsbys Central Region, comments ‘For many buy to let is an attractive income investment in a time of low interest saving rates and a volatile stock market’ Kate continues ‘With analysts now predicting interest rates will not rise until 2016, the buy to let market could see a much better return on your savings’

The research reveals London and the Home Counties dominate rental incomes, with the highest average rents sitting in Inner London. Outside of London however, Bournemouth leads the line in terms of private rentals with 30% of households in private rented accommodation.

If you are thinking of investing in the buy to let market and would like advice on what makes a good buy to let property or you have a portfolio of properties you would like to discuss Goadsby managing then please contact Kate on 01202 537333 or kate.west@goadsby.com

“We feel so fortunate to be in the position we are today. DNPR has allowed us to travel all over the world and work with clients from a plethora of sectors and industries, so there is never a dull moment! If I could stress one thing it would be to always be nice to people and in return they’ll help you. Also ignore the detractors, not everyone can like you but don’t let that affect who you are as a professional or your business.” This year marks the 10th anniversary of Darren Northeast PR, a massive achievement for any company and one Mr Northeast, along with all those who have been involved with the company are extremely proud of.

INVESTMENT NEWS

PROPERTY IS ONE INVESTMENT OPTION – HAVE YOU CONSIDERED THE OTHERS? Our Investment and Pension specialist, Martyn Charlwood explains the significance of the latest changes to pensions and why they now represent an even more attractive investment vehicle. Pensions have for some time been one of the most tax-efficient ways to save for retirement but the latest changes to pension rules effective from April 2015 now also firmly position flexible pensions as the estate planning vehicle of choice. If you were ever in doubt as to the benefits of pensions here are a few key reasons to reconsider: Tax breaks – Pensions provide the highly attractive addition of tax relief on the contributions made. As an example, for a Higher Rate tax payer who contributes £10,000 into a pension, the net contribution would equate to only £6,000.00 on account of the £4,000.00 tax relief applied – that’s an additional boost of almost 67% of the net contribution - even higher than this for an Additional Rate taxpayer. Add this to tax free investment returns and the ability to withdraw a proportion of a pension pot as tax free cash and the benefits of pension investment become exciting! Flexible and Accessible – From April 2015 private pensions will become far easier to access. Investors will be able to take their entire pension pot as a lump sum if required from as early as age

TOP TIPS FOR SAVVY INVESTORS • Always seek advice from an Independent Financial Adviser • Select an Adviser experienced and qualified to maximise returns and add value, not just a cost

55. The first 25% can be taken as tax-free cash with the balance being subject to income tax at their highest rate. There is also the option to take pension benefits in stages, rather than in one go using Income Drawdown which could greatly assist in managing the income tax position.

Are your investments and pensions working for you?... Allow us to propose an alternative Inheritance Tax friendly – The 55% tax charge applying to pensions pots left to children will be scrapped in April 2015 which will mean pensions will become a very attractive wealth transfer wrapper. If the pension owner dies before age 75 the beneficiaries will no longer have to pay any

tax on the money they receive. If the pension owner dies after age 75 the monies received by the beneficiaries will be added to their income and taxed accordingly. Consider paying more into pensions – it’s never too early to contribute but there is not much time left to maximise contributions up to the £40,000 annual allowance for this tax year and carry forward unused allowances from earlier tax years. 3 necessities, essential to the success of your pension arrangements: 1. Are the underlying monies held within your pensions being managed to maximise and obtain the best returns? 2. Some pension providers will not permit the new rules and therefore it may be necessary to consider transferring to an alternative provider 3. Ensure your providers charges are competitive – most important – ensure you are happy you are getting value for money

HOME IMPROVEMENTS

5 TIPS FOR EXTERIOR MAKEOVERS 1. The latter decades of the 20th century weren’t our finest in terms of architecture, and some houses from the 1950s onwards just aren’t that attractive. If your home is among those aesthetics forgot, an architect or builder will be able to help you transform the exterior. Detached houses are the best candidates for an extreme makeover, because there isn’t an adjoining reminder of the old look, but properties of all shapes and sizes can benefit from an exterior redesign. 2. While you can rarely be as adventurous with the colours you use on the outside of your home as on the inside, you don’t need to stick to white, cream or magnolia - there are some lovely shades of masonry paint. However, you do need to consider what will go with the surrounding buildings, if there are any planning restrictions (see below) and what suits the style and period of the building. 3. If a lick of paint isn’t going to do much, don’t despair. Rendering an unattractive exterior can work wonders, as can getting rid of ugly render - pebbledash, for example, isn’t to everyone’s taste, but it can be removed. If you do this, the brickwork underneath will almost certainly suffer, so covering it with (more contemporary) smooth render is usually your best bet. You can even insulate the exterior at the same time and render over the insulation panels. Cladding - with wood or wood-effect panelling - some of the

exterior walls can look fantastic too, as long as it suits the building. 4. Adding dormer windows and replacing unattractive concrete roof tiles with slate ones can also go a long way to giving your home character and kerb appeal. Another way to enliven a boring, featureless facade is to add an attractive porch. And don’t forget the windows and doors. Changing the style of these can make a big difference to the look of your home and may make it warmer (with improved glazing) and more secure (with better locks) as well. 5. Before you start making changes, find out whether planning permission is required. The area where you live, as well as the type of building - listed buildings can’t usually be altered without consent from the local council can affect your plans. If you live on ‘designated land’, which includes conservation areas, you may not be able to do what you want with your home’s exterior - wooden windows are usually preferred by the local council, for example. In some cases, permitted development rights have been removed from houses (flats don’t have permitted development rights), which means that everything from fitting new windows to painting the front door may require planning permission.

SAVE & EARN

If you were making more out of your money what would you spend it on? Many people have not considered renewable energy as a viable alternative to current fuel types, but those who have taken the plunge are seeing large reductions in their energy costs whilst receiving substantial income from the government. The upshot is a fantastic investment, with returns generally far outweighing other investments such as banks, building societies and ISAs. Air source heat pumps (ASHP’s) are a boiler replacement that works on the principle of reverse refrigeration, producing heat instead of cold. ASHP’s are very efficient producing 3 times the output for the energy consumed: they are used commercially and have been around us for decades. Most supermarkets, offices, hotels and petrol stations etc…have their heating and hot water provided by ASHP’s. We have all become used to just ‘paying the energy bill when it arrives’, probably by DD or STO; not really understanding how much of the cost relates to which appliance – do you know the cost of your lighting or refrigeration? People who have renewable energy have taken the step of making an investment to reduce fuel bills now and in the future, and with government incentives, are well on the way to having their money back - rather than just having a cost for fuel.

Those with renewable energy say they are getting their investment back from the savings on their bills and the Government incentives they receive, in many cases returning 10% or more on their investment! DHS renewables is a local company delivering ASHP’s nationwide, we have years of experience in renewables, having previously specialised in solar electricity and hot water. We can provide a free consultation to establish the suitability of an ASHP for your home. The Government is committed to renewables providing incentives in the form of Feed In Tariff (FIT) for electricity generation and Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) for renewable heating. It is intended that all new builds will be fitted with a renewable heating source from 2016 - NEXT YEAR! There will be no new oil or LPG installations from 2020 and all homes are to be electric-only by 2030. Will there be sustainable fossil fuel supplies in 15 years? Our energy has been in the hands of the big six energy companies since 1998, with costs spiraling out of control. These companies are making massive profits for fat cat directors and shareholders, and with most of them being owned by foreign investors we are seeing our hard-earned money flowing straight out of the country.

DHS Renewables’ customers have seen their fuel buying in a different light. Everyone is committed to buying fuel for their homes; it’s just a choice of how we do it. We can effectively rent our fuel by continuing to buy fossil fuels or we can invest in renewables to dramatically reduce our bills, whilst receiving government money to help us return our investment in full…in other words get our money back! Have you stopped to consider when you will get your money back if you carry on buying energy as you are?


ADVICE FROM THE EXPERT From your renewable energy expert, Ian

We have purchased energy in the same way for as long as we can remember, in fact we probably foraged for fuel prior to Governments taking control of our fuel supplies. Since then Governments have been taxing our fuel buying and a substantial amount of Government revenues comes from fuel taxation. Energy is fundamental to our living standards and probably follows water, food and a roof over our heads, in the order of things most essential to living comfortably. If energy is that important to us why don’t we generally consider an alternative way of providing it, especially when many of us have heard or read about the energy providers who are constantly in the news for wrongdoing? In June 2014 OfGEM, the energy regulator, referred British Gas and other suppliers to the Competitions Markets Authority (CMA) for alleged ‘profiteering’ and the eighteen month investigation continues. In February 2014 energy firms were told to return £400 million from closed accounts – ‘credit left in customer accounts when people moved or switched supplier which had not been returned’ Strange then that they chase us if we move or switch supplier with a debt. In June 14 OfGEM forecast the energy companies’ profit margins would be doubled from a year ago – from £53 per customer to £106 per customer per annum. Frighteningly this is a rise from £9 per customer per annum in 2009 – a 1100% increase! All of the above is just the tip of the iceberg, as there are regular reports in the news of mis-selling, poor service and not dealing with complaints adequately etc. There is an alternative: maybe not eradicating energy buying but buying as little of it as possible. In my opinion we have already made this transition with cars – opting, in many cases, to pay more for the vehicle to save at the pump because the vehicle is so fuel efficient. Apply the same logic to our house and it becomes simple – renewable energy will prevent us for having to buy huge amounts of fuel and as fuel costs continue to rise over long periods we can save more year on year. If you then throw in huge Government incentives rewarding you with thousands of pounds to install renewable energy systems, who wouldn’t want to invest, especially if those returns are 5-10 times more than we can achieve in regular investments? Put more money in your pocket by thinking differently about your energy purchasing. For more information visit our website www. dhsrenewables.co.uk or speak to the experts today on 01202 558254.

Northern Buy to Let Market in the Newspapers

Buy-to-let investors have made £12,000 profit on every £1,000 they put into property since mortgages for landlords were first launched in 1996 – returns that have far outstripped every other type of investment, according to an analysis by one of Britain’s biggest lenders. 26th April 2014

Northern cities and Scotland are producing the best returns for property investors, far outstripping yields in the South. In Sheffield, where the average property costs just under £70,000 and the average monthly rent is £645, landlords are reaping gross gains of more than 11pc. This is the highest in Britain and well above the nationwide average of 4.2pc. In fact nine of the top 10 postcodes for buy-to-let yields are in the North and Scotland. 27th September 2014

The Investment Process •

Client makes an investment as a loan to Silver Arrow Investments LTD. Minimum £50,000 Maximum £1,000,000

Silver Arrow Investments invests these funds directly into property with a RICs valuation of at least 20% above the total investment amount.

A first charge is secured against each property to the client, as security.

Guaranteed interest payments derived from rental income is paid to the client either monthly or annually.

After the agreed investment period the investor is given back their original investment plus a portion of the capital gains of the property from the sale.

Silver Arrow Investments guarantees a minimum annual return of 13.6% on the original investment. Please note early exits are available subject to a minimum 6 months notice.

Further Information Repossessed Property Silver Arrow Investments specialises in investing into repossessed property. The primary contributing factor for repossession is a landlord/homeowner defaulting on mortgage or loan payments forcing the lender to take action. Often these lenders will offer the property or group of properties at a significantly discounted price, to a small number of buyers, ensuring a quick sale and the liquid realisation of the asset. SAI has access to a number of banks and other financial institutions, and as a result is in prime position to buy property below the market rate.

Property Due Diligence Before each acquisition the property is inspected by a RICs surveyor and valued; copies of these are provided to the investor. The market adjacent to the property is assessed for sale suitability and any improvements or refurbishment costs are included in the original purchase prices, as an investor you are not liable for any costs. A property is only approved for investment as long as the Silver Arrow Investment team are confident that it is priced at least 20% below RICs approved market valuation, returns at least a 10% rental yield and will be suitable for sale in the future.

Property Management and Letting Silver Arrow Investments has full responsibility for each property. We work with a small number of approved management companies based in large northern towns and cities and even if the property is left empty for a period of time, we have sufficient capacity from surplus rental income to continue to meet interest payments. Throughout the investment lifetime, any costs of keeping the property in good and habitable condition are met by SAI.

Trust & Security Unlike many other property investment firms, all clients of Silver Arrow Investments are awarded first legal charge on the specific property or group of properties the investments are made against. Investors can be confident that their investment is safe.

First Charge A legal right under which the holder (of First Charge) has first call on the property in the event that the borrower defaults on repayments. All ongoing maintenance costs, ground rent, management fees and insurances are covered by Silver Arrow Investments. We are currently accepting new clients. References are available upon request and genuine interest.

SANDBANKS

wife and I entered into a nine month conditional contract with Josh Mitchell of Silver Arrow Bespoke “inMy October 2013 in respect of our three and a half acre residential property in Canford Cliffs. The land was a difficult shape and was bordered by Luscombe Valley (SSSI) on one side and Parkstone Golf Course on another. The land was also subject to a formal restriction on the number of houses that could be built on the land and that limit had been reached. Several developers who had come to see the property did not want to take on the risk and the commitment, as they judged the likelihood of obtaining planning permission was extremely slim. One who signed an agreement with us in 2012, did nothing to fulfil their obligations and we decided to cancel the contract in the Spring of 2013. In the Summer of 2013, Josh Mitchell, aided by architect Toby Peters of Empery & Co came up with an amazing scheme to build three dynamic contemporary houses on the land. Plans were prepared and consultants were engaged to assist with the submission. of the Planning Application. Josh Mitchell complied with all the deadlines in our contract and the Planning Application was duly submitted to Poole BC ahead of schedule. The Planning Committee were due to vote on the application on 22nd March 2014 and the whole Committee visited our property on the day before the meeting to see the site for themselves. We had no objections from the neighbours as Josh had prepared an information pack for each one of them and we had been to see them personally and told them what Josh was trying to achieve. One lady who lives nearby, felt that too many trees would need to come down. However, 52 trees out of over 400 was not really a major stumbling block. The Planning Committee met and not only complemented Josh Mitchell and his architect, but they passed the application with a unanimous vote of approval. Josh Mitchell and Toby Peters had achieved what many other developers thought would be impossible. After obtaining Planning Permission, Josh advised us that he was on-selling the site to another large developer. We were very disappointed as we really wanted Silver Arrow and Toby Peters to complete the whole build process, but we respected Josh’s decision on this issue. The other developer insisted that Josh negotiated the covenant with Parkstone Golf Course which turned out to be a protracted task. Silver Arrow finally came to a negotiated settlement with the Golf Club as the deadline approached, which I am sure put to an end many sleepless nights for Josh. Once that was done, Silver Arrow was able to go unconditional with us and with the other developer. Completion went smoothly and all parties concerned were very happy with the outcome. During the year or so that we were dealing with Josh Mitchell. We came to get to know him very well and we formed a very good opinion about him, his business ethics, and his personal integrity. He was always polite and respectful to us despite being under considerable pressure at times. He was also honest and communicative and we came to get to know him well and like him a lot. He is a very young man to be running such a complicated and difficult business, but he does it very well and we have a great deal of faith in him. Would we do business with him again? Yes, if we got the opportunity, we undoubtedly would!

GLORY DE MAULEY ROAD, CANFORD CLIFFS visited Poole a number of times and particularly liked Canford Cliffs with its “We have village atmosphere and being so close to the beach and harbour. We noted that many of the large modern houses in the area have been built by Silver Arrow and so it was somewhat wishful thinking when we walked into their offices and asked if they could build us something in the Canford Cliffs area within our more modest budget. The reception we received could not have been more welcoming and their positive attitude has continued throughout the whole process. From finding us a site that we could afford, obtaining all the necessary approvals, to constructing a new house to meet our requirements it has been a pleasure to work with them. Because of the quick programme we were working to, some aspects of the design evolved during the process and we always felt that they were very fair in the way they addressed the issues and dealt with the cost implications. They have always listened to our wishes and delivered to us a beautiful house whose traditional design sits comfortably within its context whilst achieving the contemporary appearance that we wanted and for which the company is renowned.

THE BETTER BLIND COMPANY

better choice

Installing window blinds is one of the easiest and most effective ways to instantly change the appearance of a room in your home. However, why should you choose blinds over other options like curtains? Whether you want to install blinds for practical or aesthetic reasons, here are five key advantages of installing window blinds in your home. 1. Control the Light Entering the Room Window blinds provide you with more control over the amount of light entering the room because you can cover the entire window or just part of the window according to your own needs. For example, the slats on some window blinds are fitted so tightly together that they do not allow any light in at all. This could be ideal for a room where you have a home theatre or in your bedroom where you don’t want any light to wake you up in the morning. 2. Countless Styles, Colours, & Patterns Window blinds come in an endless variety of styles, colours, and patterns, allowing you to create the perfect look in your kitchen, living room, or bathroom. Choose from mini blinds, vertical blinds, roman blinds, and even cordless blinds, which are safer for children and pets as well as being very elegant.

3. Wide Variety of Materials The variety of materials that blinds come in allows you to choose the blind that is most suitable for you in terms of both price and style. For example, if your living room contains wooden furniture, you can complement the room by installing wooden blinds. However, if you find wooden blinds too expensive, you can opt for faux wood instead to keep the costs down. You then have plastic blinds, bamboo blinds, aluminium blinds, and other materials to choose from to ensure that you can always find the right blinds for any room in your home. 4. Enjoy Complete Privacy Blinds provide you with a level of privacy that you cannot get from many other options such as curtains. For the ultimate in privacy control, consider installing top-down shades. Using these, you can lower the shade from the top so that the natural light can come in, but you can still enjoy as much privacy as you require. 5. Easy to Maintain Finally, one of the best things about window blinds is that they are typically very easy to maintain. In fact, many blinds simply require a quick wipe with

a damp cloth from time to time to remove the dust. Compare this to curtains, which need to be washed every once in a while, and blinds start to look like the most convenient option. In addition, they are also long lasting, especially blinds made from wood or aluminium, meaning you won’t have to replace them until you decide you are ready for a change. Find the Perfect Blinds for Your Home Whatever style you have in mind for the rooms in your home, consider installing window blinds. Not only can they become a unique feature of the room, but they also don’t have to cost the earth. In fact, they can often be cheaper to buy and install than curtains, especially if you choose an option like faux wood instead of real wood. So have a look online or in the store next time you go shopping and try to find the perfect window blinds for your home. We offer a comprehensive made to measure and fitting service for ease of mind or you can choose the self fit option. Whichever service you partake of, you can be assured that your blinds will be custom made to meet your requirements, that you will be kept up to date, and that you will receive an excellent service.

DIARY OF A LETTING AGENT Sharon Canning Move on Rentals One of the things I love about being a letting agent, (and I know I have said this before) is there are no two days the same. Something is always happening in our industry and fortunately because I train my staff I have to ensure I am always up to date with what is going on as well as knowing what is coming up that could affect my landlords.

MOVERS & SHAKERS

This section is dedicated to the movers and shakers of local property, bringing you the news of who’s who, where they are and what they’re up to. If you have news of career changes, promotions and developments please send it to vicky@house-mag.co.uk for inclusion.

On the 6th February 2015 the House of Lords approved a Government amendment to the Deregulation Bill where landlords could be blocked from issuing a Section 21 notice on their tenants. Through the Housing Act 1988, there are two ways of a landlord gaining possession of a property. 1. The Section 21. (which has been a landlords’ security blanket) and gives a landlord the right to possession without having to give any reasons, once a fixed term of a tenancy has expired. 2. A Section 8 notice, however, this can be more lengthy and expensive. This legislation known as ‘retaliatory evictions’ is to stop ‘revenge evictions’, and will impose a ban on any landlord serving a section 21 notice on a tenant for a minimum of six months.

CONNELLS ESTATE AGENTS IN RINGWOOD Local estate agency Connells in Ringwood is delighted to announce the expansion of its team from the start of January 2015. The branch sees two new additions to its already successful team on the back of high demand for its services and increasing activity in the local housing market. The team is being lead by Shaun Keefe (Senior Negotiator in charge), Shaun has over 5 years of experience in the property industry, construction and management, beginning his career at Connells in Ferndown, and now embracing the challenges Ringwood has to offer and to be able to provide a top level service to Ringwood.

out there could find themselves on the wrong side of this legislation. I have said before in my previous columns that in 2020 they are predicting a shortage of around 1 million homes and the private sector is increasingly being relied upon to supply these homes and locally in Poole and Bournemouth out of the 70,000 plus rentals 43,000 are provided by the private investor and although I cannot dispute this legislation is good for the purpose it is intended to be for, I just know a good landlord will be held ransom on this. This still has to be passed before Parliament before the next election, which considering is being dissolved at the end of March might not get a hearing. But forewarned is forearmed and although this was blocked last year, it has got through now, and I don’t think it is going to go away.

CHILDREN’S PLAY AREAS Our products are perfect to be used in children’s play areas ensuring they have an eco-friendly and safe environment to play in. Due to the everincreasing importance to recycle & protect the environment, our products are made from 100% recycled plastic. All the plastic used is recycled in the UK and is a perfect alternative to wood. Our aim is to help rebuild the environment by utilising a commodity, which people would otherwise just throw away, and so turn what to some would be rubbish into a valuable product for everybody.

152

The benefits of using Reformed Plastics to create your children’s playground are: • It is UK designed and built • Safe and secure • No splintering • Maintenance free • Easy to clean

• A range of colours and textures • Will never rot • Strong, durable and wear resistant

WOOD vs PLASTIC Wood

Financial Beneftis The initial amount payable is more than wood, but our products are an investment as they never need to be replaced. When the costs of replacing fencing or garden furniture, both wooden and metal, due to corrosion, fatigue or natural deterioration plus maintenance materials are taken into consideration, solid plastic lumber and furniture quickly pays for itself and in the long run saves a lot of time and money. Achieving value for money is a key driver for any purchasing decision. Although some recycled products have greater up-front costs, their longevity and durability make them a more cost-effective option over the long term.

MEDIEVAL GARDENING: DOES IT WORK? I’ve heard of some strange gardening practices over the years, but some of the tips offered in a medieval gardening book which is said to have inspired Henry VIII’s lost Great Garden at Whitehall Palace take the biscuit. The Ruralia Commoda, written in 1304, due to go on display at an exhibition at Buckingham Palace in March, claims that a squash will bear fruit after nine days if planted in the ashes of human bones and watered with oil, and that cucumbers shake at the sound of thunder. It also mentions that lettuce loves goat manure and that combining the seeds of lettuce, radishes, nasturtium and colewort will result in a particularly tasty crop of greens. The book, which will be displayed alongside some of the earliest and rarest surviving records of gardens and plants from the Royal Collection, entered Henry VIII’s library after the death of its owner, the King’s chaplain Richard Rawson, in 1543 and explains the importance of a king’s garden to the Tudors.

154

But just how much truth is there in its horticultural growing tips?

Guy Barter, head of the RHS advisory service, says: “They didn’t have squashes as we know them in those days.” Perhaps the Latin text has been lost in translation. “It would have been a marrow. Squashes come from North America, which hadn’t been discovered at that time. If you watered oil on the ground it would have no fertiliser effect. It might inhibit loss of moisture by evaporation but it wouldn’t control pests. “They would have used vegetable oil as they didn’t have synthetic oil in those days and it would have been broken down in the soil. But if an old-fashioned gardener wanted to give it a go, it wouldn’t do any harm. Just don’t use engine oil!” The manual also suggests that lettuce loves goat manure; and Barter agrees. “Gardeners throughout history have gathered sheep manure which is an excellent quality and balanced feed,

I’ve never seen a cucumber shake with fear... not too high in nitrogen like bird manure and probably better than cow manure. The problem is, goats are pretty thin on the ground nowadays. If you can get hold of a goat, I’m sure there’s potential there.” Burnt human bones were obviously valued for their horticultural properties in Henry VIII’s day - and they would have added nutrients to the soil, Barter agrees. “Mixtures of blood, fish and bones are widely sold today. Bones are a very good fertiliser. Before they had good machinery to grind up bones into bonemeal, they would

WHAT TO DO THIS WEEK • Cut back hedges before birds start to nest in them. • Prune large-flowered (Group 3) clematis. • In mild areas, start to prune roses, removing dead, diseased and dying stems. • Trim back winter-flowering jasmine when it has finished flowering. • Top-dress or repot pot-grown camellias when they pass out of flower. • Check supports on wall-trained fruit trees or bushes before the new season’s growth starts in earnest. • Test the soil in your garden to see if the pH needs adjusting or if it is deficient in any major nutrients. • Put cloches in position to warm the soil for early sowings of vegetables next month. • Prune autumn-fruiting raspberry canes.

have been burned and the ashes would have been rich in phosphorous and in lime. Whether human bones are better than any other bones, I wouldn’t like to say.” While it’s not the case today, in Tudor times many soils were deficient in phosphorous. The growing of root vegetables and legumes was often inhibited by lack of phosphorous, which is needed for the healthy production of roots and good root systems. “Plants don’t use much phosphorous but there’s desperately little of it in virgin soil, so it was lacking until the invention of the fertiliser industry in the mid-19th century,” says Barter. He is, however, flummoxed by the claim that cucumbers shake with fear at the sound of thunder. “I’ve never seen a cucumber shake with fear,” he laughs. “They would have been grown in cold frames covered with glass or wax. But even so, I can’t imagine why a cucumber would shake with fear. There’s a lot of thunder at RHS Garden Wisley and a lot of cucumbers and they’ve always remained rather stoic.” However, the 14th century manual was ahead of its time in some respects, declaring that combining the seeds of lettuce, radishes, nasturtium and colewort will result in a particularly tasty crop of greens. “Isn’t that amazing? They predicted the invention of bagged mixed salads by hundreds of years. What a brilliant idea! It’s come full circle. We used to grow everything separately and now gardeners have come back to sow these mixed salad packs and grow their own versions of the supermarket ones. “Those plants would all grow happily in the same soil together. Radishes are a little bit hairy, but there are versions of radish that haven’t got hairy leaves so perhaps the Tudors grew those. But they would all combine well together.” Painting Paradise: The Art of the Garden is at The Queen’s Gallery, Buckingham Palace from March 20 to October 11. By Hannah Stephenson

GOOD ENOUGH TO EAT - Forcing strawberries Get a head start to summer by planting strawberries under glass now to encourage early fruits. Plants need exposing to a period of really cold weather to set plenty of flowers, so don’t bring them in too soon. You can lift and plant them into a pot filled with compost and soil, then bring them into the greenhouse or cold frame, or alternatively cover any plants which are in the ground with a cloche, to encourage an earlier crop. Make sure that the plants which are under cover can be accessed by pollinating insects. Throw open the doors of your greenhouse and remove cloches when the weather is mild and sunny, closing everything up again at night. In the greenhouse, once the strawberries start to flower, take a soft paintbrush and just run it over each flower once a day. This way you will ensure

good pollination. You won’t need to do that with the plants you grow outdoors. BEST OF THE BUNCH - Fern The Victorians loved ferns and in recent years we have rediscovered them, thanks to their year-round interest, tolerance to shade and perfect backdrop that they provide to bulbs such as snowdrops in winter, or placed next to astilbes beside a pond or foxgloves in a woodland setting. Most ferns like partial-to-deep shade and the soil requirements vary greatly from those that need damp soil to others which can tolerate dry sites. Try the evergreen Asplenium (spleenwort) if you want one which tolerates dryness, or Blechnum spicant, a native species, which is easy to grow in moist, acid conditions like a shady shrub border or woodland.

AUDI A7 ULTRA

NEW SUBARU OUTBACK

Audi’s sleek A7 is an out-and-out luxury express, fast, refined, quiet and with enough visual cachet to attract constant admirers. Its beautiful elegant lines outclass comparable models from BMW, Mercedes and Jaguar and underline why Audi is widely perceived as the ‘cool’ motoring brand, writes NICK FLETCHER. The A7 has the look of a large sports coupe but is a practical 4-door sportback with a cavernous boot. With a 3.0 litre diesel engine, it delivers exceptional fuel economy - 60 mpg combined – and the Ultra versions have very low emissions levels by class standards, just 122g/km, making them very attractive to business users. The car is a kerbside stunner – when parked, it attracts a lot of attention and a couple of passersby even wanted to photograph it! My test model was an A7 Ultra with S tronic auto gearbox, and with a 3.0 litre 215 hp diesel engine. On the road, it has superb power delivery and being long wide and low, it has remarkably composed handling with absolutely minimal body roll even on the tightest bends. Ride quality can be firm in town but it smooths out at higher speed. With a quiet engine, and little wind and road noise, the A7 offer great refinement, but when you want sporty performance, it’s there. The 0-60 mph time is just 7.3 seconds and the top speed 149 mph. And there are even more powerful models in the A7 range including RS versions. All but the entry models are all-wheel-drive. The cabin is superbly designed and finished, with lots of premium detailing and a well-laid out fascia. There is good head and leg room for all occupants and while the sleek body shape means the boot area is not as deep as some, it is very long and can take an impressive 535 litres, and up to 1,390 litres with the rear seats folded. The tailgate is powered too. All models get leather upholstery, sat-nav, fourzone climate control, DAB radio and Bluetooth among a wealth of standard kit. For many buyers all this will be enough, but higher-spec versions add much more including Bang & Olufsen audio system, auto-parking system and even a nightvision camera! My test model, priced at £46,855 in standard form, had extras including an extensive techopack and special paintwork which took the total to £50,630.

Subaru’s new Outback, the fifth-generation of the brandís pioneering crossover, will go on sale in the UK from April 1. The price range of £27,995 to £32,995 means the allnew Outback stays in the same price bracket as the outgoing version despite having new exterior design, a more spacious and higher quality interior and a range of advanced safety equipment and in-car technology. New to the latest model, EyeSight is Subaruís advanced collision avoidance technology which acts as a ësecond pair of eyesí for drivers, using colour camera technology to monitor the road and traffic ahead for potential hazards.

Externally, revisions include re-styled front bumper, grille and headlights. There is a revamped interior using a range of higher quality materials throughout, complimented by a new range of factory-fit infotainment and sat nav systems. Buyers can choose between a 2.0-litre turbo-diesel, producing 150 hp or a naturally-aspirated 2.5-litre petrol unit, with 165 hp.Diesel engines will be offered with either a six-speed manual transmission or Subaruís Lineartronic (CVT) transmission; the 2.5-litre petrol engine is sold exclusively with Lineartronic. There are two trim levels available in the UK ñ SE and SE Premium.

HYUNDAI ALL-NEW GENESIS Hyundai’s new high-technology premium saloon, the Genesis, will be available in the UK from April, priced at £47,995. Available in limited numbers, the new flagship model will be sold exclusively via selected Hyundai dealerships nationwide. Hyundai’s says the Genesis showcases the company’s capabilities in the areas of “innovative technology, luxurious comfort, craftsmanship and premium style.” A 3.8-litre V6 GDI engine delivers power to the rear wheels, working in conjunction with an eightspeed automatic transmission.

Advanced safety features include Smart Cruise Control, Automatic Emergency Braking and the world’s first CO2 cabin sensor, which monitors the quality of the cabin environment and helps protect the driver from the dangers of drowsiness. Four cameras offer a 360-degree view of the vehicle at all times, providing assistance to the Rear Cross Traffic Alert system which warns drivers of approaching hazards when reversing from a parking space. Blind Spot Detection monitors traffic around the car while on the road and warns of approaching hazards. A head-up display projects important information into the driver’s line of sight.

PEUGEOT 308 GT Peugeot’s award-winning 308 range has a new dynamic flagship – the 308 GT which will be in UK showrooms in March. Prices will be announced nearer that time. Available in Hatchback and SW (estate) body styles, both models offer assertive new styling and bespoke chassis modifications to create a lower ride height. Says Peugeot: “The result is an exceptional on-the-road experience that will delight the most enthusiastic drivers.” The 0-60 mph time of the quickest version, the 1.6L THP, is 7.5 seconds, top speed 146 mph and the combined fuel economy 50.4 mpg. Styling details include the PEUGEOT Lion emblem moving from the bonnet’s leading edge to the front grille, with three horizontal blades on either side. Exclusive new direction indicators also distinguish the 308 GT from other models. They are placed above the new air scoops which supply the engine with additional cooling.

NEW HONDA CR-V The 308 GT sits on 18-inch ‘Diamant’ wheels, shod with Michelin Pilot Sport 3 tyres. At the rear, the 308 GT offers a striking and distinctive posture, due in part to the lacquered black diffuser and twin exhaust pipes. The GT signature is integrated into the tailgate, as well as the front grille and front wings. A new ambiance is also achieved in the car’s cabin, with both the roof lining and upper window pillars finished in anthracite. Red stitching adds a performance air to the upholstery trim and is also found on the dashboard, door panels, gear lever gaiter and floor mats. Aluminium detailing on the pedals, coupled with stainless steel sill finishers in the door apertures, add the finishing touch. The 308 GT features enhanced new chassis settings. Ride height has been lowered by 7mm at the front and 10mm at the rear for a more dynamic drive. The revised suspension is mated to a choice of highperformance engines, one petrol and one diesel.

BUSINESS EDITION RAV4 Toyota has added a new RAV4 to its SUV range, the Business Edition. While the name makes the model’s target market clear, the wealth of equipment features and RAV4’s proven quality and reliability make the newcomer an appealing prospect for a much wider group of customers, the company says. The standard specification is led by Touch 2 with Go, the latest development of Toyota’s touchscreencontrolled multimedia, connectivity and navigation system. This includes DAB digital radio, Bluetooth, a rear-view camera and access to on-line information and entertainment services.

Other features include cruise control and dualzone climate control and auto headlights and wipers, plus an auto-dimming rear-view mirror. The features are all in addition to the Active grade specification, including 17-inch alloy wheels, LED daytime running lights, front fog lamps, poweradjustable door mirrors and a four-speaker audio system with USB and Aux-in connections. A single version is available, powered by a 2.0-litre D-4D diesel engine, with six-speed manual transmission and front-wheel drive. Combined fuel consumption is 57.6mpg with 127g/km CO2 emissions. The RAV4 Business Edition is on sale now, price £23,995.

Honda’s CR-V - one of the world’s bestselling compact SUVs - has been revised and upgraded and the new version will be in UK showrooms this Spring.Prices have not yet been announced. Highlights include a new diesel engine and nine-speed automatic transmission, an allnew connectivity and infotainment system and enhanced suspension. Available with the four-wheel drive CR-V, is the new higher-powered 160 hp 1.6-litre i-DTEC fourcylinder diesel engine. The new model will also showcase the Honda Connect in-car audio and information system. Key features include DAB / FM / AM and internet radio, Bluetooth connectivity, internet browsing, satellite navigation and rear-view parking camera. Honda Connect is compatible with Android 4.0.4, the world’s most popular Smartphone operating system, using familiar pinch, swipe and tap functionality – all accessed through a seveninch display screen. Also on the new model is Honda’s new Intelligent Adaptive Cruise Control system, capable of predicting and automatically reacting to other vehicles ‘cutting-in’ to the vehicle’s lane, based on extensive real-world research of typical European driving styles. It uses a camera and a radar to sense the position of other vehicles on the road. It then predicts the likelihood of vehicles in neighbouring lanes cutting-in, enabling the vehicle to react quickly and safely. The styling of the new CR-V includes redesigned headlamps flowing into the new grille. Additionally, the new bumper and skid plate give the CR-V a wider appearance and hint at the improved stability, while also lowering the car’s visual centre of gravity. At the rear, the LED combination lamps have been restyled to give the CR-V a more fluid, threedimensional appearance. Newly-styled 17- and 18-inch alloy wheels are also available, and the cabin has been restyled to improve visibility and access to the new touchscreen. The new CR-V is available with a three-strong powertrain line-up, comprising two 1.6-litre diesel engines (160 hp and 120hp) and a 2.0-litre petrol engine (155 hp).

Thread Lifts…The Non-Surgical Face Lift!

Before

After

What are PDO Thread Lifts? PDO Threads are an effective cosmetic technique to lift and tighten sagging skin. The threads are 100% PDO (Polydioxanone), a clinically proven bio-compatible & absorbable material that is commonly used in medical suturing. The threads re-define facial contours whilst stimulating collagen synthesis to support and lift the skin. Which areas are treatable using PDO Threads? Upper and lower cheeks, foreheads (brow lifting), jawline, neck, naso-labial folds, marionette lines, smokers lines, lip borders and lines around the eyes. What are the Cogs, Mono & Screw Threads? Cog threads have irregular edges which grip the under surface of the skin inducing high rate of collagen growth and resulting in a longer lasting effective lift. Cogs are very popular for full face and brow lifting. The mono and screw threads offer support to more delicate tissues, reducing fat deposits and increasing collagen matrix and support. They are used for fatty jowls and necks, thin facial skin and lines above the lip and around the eyes. Who should perform the Thread lift treatments ? Only trained professionals who have attended the full thread training course are certified to perform this procedure. How long do the results usually last for? The lifting effect peaks at approx. 6 months when new collagen has formed around the threads. Studies show the lift can last for up to 2 years. Are there any side effects? Mild swelling & bruising may occur and you may feel slight tightness or a pulling sensation following the treatment but this soon eases off. Is thread lifting painful? A local anaesthetic injection or a topical anaesthetic cream is used in the treatment area to minimise discomfort. When can I return to normal activities? You will be able to fully resume your everyday routine and social commitments within a couple of days.

HEALTH & BEAUTY The latest beauty tips and treatments from the owner of Chic Beauty Salon & Academy

GRAMMYS GLAMOUR Another day another conversation-starting Instagram snap from Kim Kardashian. She didn’t get 26.2 million followers just for looking good, did she? So with the pressure of Grammys week she shared a picture of her ‘glam squad’, a term frequently used by the Kardashians, although sadly we don’t get many chances to drop it into our vocab. I mean if we all had a ‘glam squad’ on hand every morning (mine would need to pick the Weetabix out of my hair!) the world would surely be a better place? In this “quick glam” moment Kim’s seen cuddling baby North (high cute factor) while she gets her

hair and makeup done simultaneously for her Kardashian Beauty Hair event. But it could be any day, to be honest. The tan, the nails, the brows, the skin – her high-maintenance beauty regime must be one big pamper party before she even starts on the hair and makeup. Can you imagine? After the Grammy’s this week where Kim decides it’s the perfect opportunity to showcase a new shoulder bob haircut, she posted a picture in thanks of all the work that goes on behind-the-scenes, writing under the below pic: “I love my glam squad!!!! Without them all of this isn’t possible! Thank you @makeupbymario @ michaelsilvahair @tombachik @reneluv. I love u guys!”

Gym-free Slimming

EIGHT REASONS WHY YOU NEED A MONTHLY FACIAL

From the experts at The Simone Thomas Hair & Beauty Salon

We all love the idea of a weight-loss fix minus the hard work - but can you really get results? If someone said you could lie on a couch, be massaged for half hour and lose significant inches around your waist, you’d have every right to be sceptical. Is this really possible, or too good to be true? We put this question to Fat Loss Expert ‘Terry Gayle’ from The Slimming Rooms: After years of working in the Fitness Industry trying to help people to lose weight, it became obvious that following a Diet Plan or attending the Gym week in week out isn’t for everyone! We’ve all heard of the phrase EAT LESS and EXERCISE MORE, but sometimes we need some extra help in shifting those stubborn areas of fat where diet and exercise just won’t work. At The Slimming Rooms in Bournemouth. We offer a variety of slimming and weight loss treatments including the revolutionary Lipofirm Plus Ultrasound Liposuction treatment. In a nutshell, Lipofirm Plus uses ultrasonic technology to break down fat cells and radio frequency to tighten up your skin, so you get inch loss and firm skin all in one. It’s one of the few medically proven ultrasound liposuction machines available in the whole of the UK. Lipofirm Plus is a convenient non surgical, non invasive, no needles, no pain, no down time solution for both men and women and results are visible after the first treatment! Watch the stubborn areas of fat you’ve tried to lose for years simply melt away. Say goodbye to counting calories and those fad diets doomed from the start. All you have to do is lie on a comfy couch, close your eyes and relax as the therapist gets on with all the hard work.

Looking for Non Surgical, Non Invasive Liposuction in Bournemouth? We can help with our state of the art machine! Call us today to book your FREE consultation at our Weight Loss Clinic in Bournemouth, and find out more about our highly effective slimming treatments:

Most people don’t understand the benefits that a good professional facial can offer. As skin professionals it is our duty to let you know. Most people will wait until they encounter a skin concern (weird breakouts, dry itchy skin, dark spots, etc.) or have an upcoming special event before coming in for a facial. While this is totally OK, these frustrating problems can often be pre empted by proper monthly facials and counseling on the correct at-home products. We know that times are tough in this economy and it’s undeniably smart to cut back on extraneous purchases. However, here is a short article outlining why a monthly facial is a good investment. Your skin is always on display and often has the power to dictate how good we feel about ourselves. What’s more is that facials at The Simone Thomas Hair & Beauty Salon are affordable. Facials are ideal once a month unless you have a specific skin concern you are trying to overcome (acne, hyper-pigmentation, etc), then you may need to come in for a series of treatments. 1) Facials allow you to relax. They feel great and are healing to the soul. The power of touch, massage, proper technique, and professional products can heal. 2) Facials increase circulation of the blood under the skin allowing the skin optimal health to facilitate the renewal skin cells. 3) Facials decrease waste underneath the skin that can cause puffiness, ruddiness, and fluid accumulation by manipulating the lymphatic system that lies just under the skin. Facials also aids in detoxification. 4) A good facial (and facial massage) can help smooth fine lines and promote collagen production, which is the building block of the skin (to prevent premature aging, wrinkles, and sagging). 5) A facial will cleanse the pores on a much deeper level. Cleaning out the pores can help to maintain clear skin, stop acne formation, as well as can help to change the pore’s size. 6) Can help even skin tone and lighten dark spots. Dark spots age our skins’ appearance visibly. Again a gentle reminder- sunscreen is still a necessity no matter how great the facial. 7) Facials slow the aging process. They allow your skin to feel healthier, smoother, and look more radiant. Facials reduce fine lines, age spots, and relieve dehydrated skin. 8) Facials are not a miracle in an hour but they do give you a fresh start to a healthier and balanced complexion. Regular facials will help you maintain optimal skin health.

PATRICK’S RESTAURANT 1 Bournemouth Road Ashley Cross Poole Dorset BH14 OEG

Nestled in the corner of Ashley Cross Green sits Patrick’s. Taking a prime position, this family run restaurant and bar is renowned for coming alive of an evening. Hosting live music, open mic nights, and various sports events, you get the jist of why?

168

House however striped off our gladrags and took a trip to Patrick’s for lunch. This is no fuss dining at its best.

For our vegetarian, we are never quite sure if her meal will compare to ours, but the goat’s cheese burger did. Deep fried goat’s cheese coated in a light crumb accompanied by field mushrooms and a tangy tomato pickle has left our Vicky feeling very satisfied. Only to add to Vicky’s cheese heaven was the Stilton mash. As an optional side, if you like mash and you like Stilton, then this is the one for you.

Inside the interior is simplistic with neutral tones and shades of chocolate. A large if perhaps slightly gothic chandelier acts as a point of focus, shedding light on an otherwise dull day.

What has to be touched on is the value for money for what you receive. Patrick’s offer a £5 lunch menu featuring classics such as bangers and mash and battered haddock with fries and tarter sauce.

Patrick’s offers you home cooked classics, burgers, wraps, and popularly a selection of meats and fish from the grill. For those who are big on meat then I would recommend the mixed grill. Not the lightest of lunches, comprising of flame grilled steak, bacon, and sausage, it is a scrummy treat. On the fish grill black breme fillets are on the menu. Served with triple cooked chips and slaw, delicious.

A surprising gesture was the availability of a gluten free menu. For many of us this is a real perk continuing Januarys diet through to February. If you’ve been feeling the pinch of the pennies, but want to treat yourself to a meal that escapes the price then I would suggest you visit Patrick’s.

“I’m in my happy place at the moment.” These were the words of senior designer Jon Lockhart having begun tucking into honey coated sliced sausages served up tapas style at The Libertine. Snuggled up in the alcove of the bay window it was a comfy, in my opinion, perfect affair for a chilly day. An old age finish trends across the décor. Dinky glass vases, old age books, and little trinket boxes hug the shelves. Soft distressed leathers, high backs arm chairs and multiple scatter cushions all add to the ambiance. Having taken a seat, starters flooded the table and the House team could barely contain themselves. Having reviewed a collection of various eateries, this is the first time I have seen the entire team sit so animated, discussing how enthralled they are with their meal. Quite the picture, it was a delight and frankly hilarious to watch. The general consensus was that House currently were experiencing food porn. On the menu, home baked black pudding sausage rolls, scotch eggs, pork scratching, chilli jam and glazed sausages sit nestled on a large wooden platter. The star of the show was the Camembert box. Accompanied by chargrilled ciabatta and an onion relish all hands

were most certainly on deck. For our vegetarian, very sweetly, the Libertine delivered a goats cheese panna cotta complimented with pickled beetroot. Delicate in flavor and visuals, I would recommend this choice as a lighter option. Manager Ross told that they source their meat from John Penny & Sons where cattle are nurtured on 250 acres of farmland and raised on natural feeds. Serving up a chateaubriand he explained that this is what makes their meat so tender. Tender it was. A beautiful cut of meat with a choice of peppercorn or merlot sauce I would put this top of the list to try if you enjoy your meat. Partnered with onion rings, chips and a small side salad, this is simple food executed with faultlessness. The Libertine accommodates a large wood fire pizza oven. Need I say much more? No food in the house, you don’t fancy cooking, head to the libertine and order a pizza. Quick and delicious, you wont be disappointed.

Out back, the Libertine offers a private dining experience for larger groups. Known as The Forge we were surprised and delighted to hear that this venue can be hired at no extra cost. All that’s asked is that you’re a group of 20 and above. I’m already thinking of a party I can have, who’s birthday is next?! Now for dessert, gooey chocolate brownie and vanilla ice cream. Not a chocolate cake in disguise, but a soft rich brownie warmed to provide just a slight wobble. If I could give a facial expression to match this, your jaw would be dropped to the floor and eyes would be wide like a cat begging. Another very popular dessert around the table was Granny Smith apple and butterscotch crumble. In their own mini dish, hot and bubbling, this was a real treat for a rainy day. Our only oddity was the caramelised poach pear crème brulee served with a walnut shortbread. Not as naughty as the other desserts but equally as yummy. Ross was incredibly kind in pouring us all a little tipple of dessert wine to sip alongside, a raisin muscat. Having a particularly sweet tooth myself I finished not only my own but the rest of my colleagues glasses and left feeling rather happy. Spoilt is the prominent word crossing my mind.

QUIT TALKING START DOING

Charlie Lowe from the fastest growing bootcamp ‘Wassmuffin Fitter Than fit’ talks Fitness, well being, healthy eating and of course Thai Boxing.

TIP OF THE WEEK You’re probably telling yourself something like “I should exercise right now. If I don’t work out, I’m never going to get fit.” This statement has many hidden obstacles. For one thing, feeling like you should do something makes it seem like work, or an obligation. That’s no fun. You’re also thinking about what will happen if you don’t exercise in other words, you’re threatening yourself with punishment (the image of being unfit). Subconsciously, you’re flooding your mind with negativity. Instead, remember that exercise is a choice, and it’s about whether you want to, or not! And instead of thinking about how you’ll look if you don’t work out, think about how great you’d look if you did!

Charlie 07968855163 Michael 07766090116 info@fitterthanfit.co.uk

27TH – 28TH FEBRUARY, 7.45PM ULTIMA VEZ: WHAT THE BODY DOES NOT REMEMBER AT THE LIGHTHOUSE, POOLE’S CENTRE FOR THE ARTS

6TH MARCH LA TRAVIATA AT BOURNEMOUTH PAVILION THEATRE

The seminal dancework What the Body Does Not Remember by Brussels-based Wim Vandekeybus and Ultima Vez comes to Lighthouse, Poole’s Centre for the Arts from 27-28 February as part of a national tour that visits 12 UK venues, including Sadler’s Wells, London. Premiering in 1987, What the Body Does Not Remember caused a sensation in the world of dance with its intense atmosphere and high octane physicality. It was so well received in New York that year it garnered a prestigious Bessie Award - unusual for a debut piece of choreography. What the Body Does Not Remember, Vandekeybus’ first piece of choreography, is neither polite dance nor pleasant shapes to pretty music. It balances on the razor edge of attraction and repulsion. The dancers are driven to act and react at high speed, and with split second timing, to both each other and to the music – and where its moments of humour thread through explosions of aggression, fear and danger in an adrenaline-fuelled performance, played out on a combative landscape. 28 years on and with a new cast, this iconic piece of physical theatre, remains one of the most exciting pieces of dance ever made.

Award-winning opera producer Ellen Kent is determined to see opera triumph over war as she brings Eastern Europe talent to the UK stage with a stunning performance of La Traviata. With magnificent sets by renowned Ukrainian designer Nadia Shvets and handpicked soloists from the national operas of Odessa, Spain and Rostov, the show visits the Pavilion Theatre in Bournemouth on March 6. La Traviata is a tragic true story of searing passion and memorable music telling of the life and love of the passionate but consumptive Violetta and her doomed romance with the aristocratic Alfredo. Verdi’s outstanding interpretation of one of the most popular love stories of the 19th Century, La Dame aux Camelias, includes highlights such as the Brindisi, the bestknown drinking song in opera, the duet Un Di Felice and the haunting aria Addio Del Passato. Alongside a 70-strong company, soloists include international sopranos Alyona Kistenyova and Maria Tsonina, baritone Vladimir Dragos, and tenors Ruslan Zinevych, who has sung with Pavarotti, and Giorgio Meladze, who joined Jose Carreras on stage last year. There are also local dancers, children and adults who join the cast.

1ST MARCH JANE EYRE & THE TENANT OF WILDFELL HALL AT DORCHESTER ARTS CENTRE

9TH MARCH THE SCRIPT AT AT BOURNEMOUTH INTERNATIONAL CENTRE

Enjoy a Brontë double bill with afternoon tea and cakes available in the interval. Described in the British Theatre Guide as “a brilliant production…a must-see show”. Live Wire’s Jane Eyre retells the classic Gothic story of a penniless and friendless young woman and the dashing-yet-devilish Mr. Rochester. The Tenant of Wildfell Hall by Anne, the vastly underappreciated and least known of the Brontës, is the most shocking of all their novels. This multi-layered masterpiece shows both the brutality and consequences of life choices and the hope of happiness through redemption, forgiveness and truth. Alison Farina’s adaptation is brilliant and offers intense drama in this superb production. Tickets available from Dorchester Tourist Information Centre 01305 267992 and Dorchester Arts Centre 01305 266926.

The Irish three piece will kick off a 2015 UK arena tour, including a date at the Bournemouth International Centre on 9 March 2015, and will also be joined by very special guest Labrinth. The tour comes hot on the heels of the release of their fourth album No Sound Without Silence. The Script’s fourth album, No Sound Without Silence, is the sound of a band firing on all cylinders and channeling the momentum of their last, rocket-powered campaign. The trio of songwriters had so many ideas while touring last year, they were bursting out of the specially built mobile recording studio they’d taken with them on the tour bus. The Script have scored a huge amount of success globally, selling over 20 million records and with 3 albums that have been multi-platinum throughout the world.
