HELP TO BUY ISA A WELCOME BOOST Local estate agency Fox & Sons, which is part of the national network Sequence UK, sees Chancellor George Osborne’s announcement of a new Help to Buy ISA as a welcome boost for the local market. The new ISAs, which launch this autumn through banks and building societies, will see first time buyer’s savings given a 25% increase from the government. “This is a great incentive to get people saving for a deposit for their first home and puts home ownership within even easier reach,” says William Shouler, Branch Manager at Fox & Sons. “Effectively, this new ISA will see individuals given a £50 bonus for every £200 that they can save each month, up to £3,000.” The Help to Buy ISA will be available to take out for up to four years for homes worth up to £450,000 in London and £250,000 outside the capital. “We feel that this will build confidence with aspiring home owners who are considering entering the housing market and who may be struggling to raise a large deposit,” continues William. “This new incentive also sits nicely alongside the Help to Buy scheme which enables purchasers to buy a home with only a 5% deposit – both are fantastic tools for getting on the property ladder.” For more information on the local property visit your local Fox & Sons branch at Poole or call 01202 672736.

A ROOM WITH A NEW LEASE OF LIFE One customer of the new Ultraframe LivinROOF not only found the perfect words to express its benefits – he even measured its energy saving down to a third! “We used to see it as a room in the garden – now we have a room in the house.” That is how John Rodwell described the transformation of his existing conservatory with the new LivinROOF. “With the new LivinROOF, we really have allyear-round use of a room that’s just as warm and comfortable as any other in the house.” In the case of the inquiring mind of this retired engineer, that is not a claim that he has plucked from the air, as explained: “Once the conversion was complete, I did a 5 day test. When the outside temperature was

around zero at nights, I measured the inside temperature at 10pm after I’d turned off the underfloor heating, then again at 10am the next day. It had gone from 14deg C to 10deg; that’s a decrease of only around 0.3deg per hour. When we had the original roof, the room could be down near the outside temperature in as little as an hour!” Because John wanted to minimise the heat loss, he chose the LivinROOF in its all solid form, with no glass panels. However it can be made with anything up to 50% glass and still have excellent heat retention. The LivinROOF can be built as part of a new conservatory/orangery but was designed mainly for updating existing conservatories by replacing the original roof.

LLOYDS LILLIPUT APPOINT A NEW MANAGER Lloyds Lilliput office are pleased to announce the appointment of their new Manager Katie Fox. Katie has been an estate agent for over 15 years and has a wealth of knowledge and experience in all aspects of agency.

a premium in doing so but that is not necessarily the case” If you are thinking of selling, please call Katie on 01202 708044 or if easier email katie@lloydspropertygroup.com . She would welcome the opportunity to discuss why choosing Lloyds as your selling agent is the right move for you.

RENTS AND DEMAND CONTINUE TO SOAR! Latest statistics from Sequence have said that average rents are up 7% on a year ago and have reached an average of £705 per month. It is reported that nationally the demand for rented accommodation is up 7% and supply of available properties down 17%. Simon Whitlock, Lettings Manager for Goadsbys Fordingbridge, reports “Demand is set to continue to rise, with would-be buyers being priced out of the sales market and struggling to save the high deposits required to purchase property. “With the UK population continuing to grow, I would predict the average rental figures will continue to increase throughout 2015. With a growing population there is an ever increasing need for private rented accommodation; this coupled with the predicted rising rents and ever improving finance available, has seen a number of new investors starting to look for their first investment and many more looking to increase current portfolios of buy to let property” Should you wish to discuss investing in the buy to let market for the first time or expanding your current portfolio please call Simon; 01425 470283 or email simon.whitlock@goadsby.com

ANNOUNCING THE ARRIVAL OF NEW MARVEL DELUXE EDITIONS A collection of Comicbook Superheroes hand-signed by legend Stan Lee - now showing at Westover Gallery! Westover Gallery is extremely excited to announce the arrival of the heavily anticipated Marvel collection 2015.

Each of the 12 pieces will be an edition of only 9 worldwide and these will be extremely sought after by lifelong fans and collectors.

Stan Lee, the legend behind Marvel, has handsigned this amazing new collection of super-sized limited edition prints paying homage to the original large-scale art created by great artists from the comic book industry.

“With great power there must also come ... great responsibility!” – Stan Lee Join us in the gallery for a glass of bubbly and marvel at MARVEL!

Stan Lee, 92, introduced Spider Man as a syndicated newspaper strip that became the most successful of all adventure strips and has appeared in over 500 newspapers worldwide. He currently remains Chairman Emeritus of Marvel, as well as a member of the Editorial Board of Marvel Comics.

VARIETY WESSEX HOLD PARTY FOR LINWOOD SCHOOL Variety Wessex held a fabulous party for 55 children from our local Linwood School last Monday. A mouth watering finger food lunch was served by staff from the Riviera Hotel in Alum Chine as soon as the 55 hungry children arrived and then they were entertained by their favourite magician and children’s entertainer ‘Krazy Kev’. On leaving each very happy child was given a very special bear from friends of Anna Howard who had the idea of buying each child that attended the Variety Wessex Christmas party a ‘Harrods Jasper Bear’. More bears were bought from John Lewis locally and those together with the Harrods bears left over were given to these beautiful children last Monday.

“I don’t really see a need to retire as long as I am having fun” – Stan Lee The collection consists of 12 images featuring some of the most influential characters that we, of all generations, have come to know and love throughout Stan Lee’s reign as the Marvel mastermind. On Saturday the 28th of March we will be joined by the Hulk, Spider-Man, Captain America and more!

For more information on this collection, please contact: Westover Gallery, 4 Westover Road, Bournemouth, BH1 2BY Telephone: +44 (0)1202 297682 Email: enquiries@westovergallery.co.uk Website: www.westovergallery.co.uk

IT’S TIME FOR A SPRING TIME SPRUCE UP, SAYS FOX & SONS

TEE OFF IN AID OF DIVERSE ABILITIES

Local estate agency Fox & Sons which is part of the national network Sequence UK, is expecting another extremely busy spring. With a 7.5% increase in buyers putting their property on the market reported during April 2014 compared to the same month in 2013, Fox & Sons in Poole is expecting another rise in activity and is advising prospective sellers to spruce up their property before the spring rush arrives.

Poole Bay Rotary will be hosting a charity golf day at Bulbury Woods Golf Club in aid of Coping with Chaos, one of the services run by Dorset’s disability charity Diverse Abilities and Victoria School, another local charity that support children with disabilities. The event will take place on Thursday 7 May and will be a two team Stableford competition (playing in fours) and all proceeds collected as a result of the competition will benefit both charities.

With spring now upon us and interest from buyers rising, Branch Manager William Shouler at Fox & Sons in Poole believes that now is the most aesthetically pleasing time for potential sellers to get their property on to the market: “Easter is just around the corner which means spring has arrived and the longer daylight hours are setting in. Flowers are in bloom, front gardens look more attractive and the sun is starting to shine. Ensuring that your property looks

great at this time of year really helps as first impressions do count when it comes to getting the best price possible on your house sale.” says William. As more sellers look to place their property on the market around the spring period, now is the ideal time to get the ball rolling with regards to selling your home: “Spring is traditionally known as the busiest time of year for the property market, which means the competition from buyers is fierce,” says William. “With this in mind we are urging anybody who is thinking of selling their property to get in touch with us now to see how we can help market your property.” If you have a property to sell and would like to book a free market appraisal with Fox & Sons please contact the branch on 01202 672736 or email: poole@sequencehome.co.uk

If you would like to find out more information regarding this event please contact David Way on 01202 768410 or email davway20@gmail.com. Or contact Nicci Short on 01929 459574 or email nicci.short@hoburne.com. Deadline for entries is Thursday 1 May 2015. For further information about Diverse Abilities, please visit www.diverseabilities. org.uk or call 01202 718266.

TALKING BUSINESS

TALKING BUSINESS House talks business with Emma & Steeve of Northfield Property Solutions Ltd, Emma Jane Interiors and The Betsy Group

Betsy Group (UK) Ltd Emma & Steeve

In 1990 with the help of my wife, Emma I set up a building company, Northfield Property Solutions and in 1995 after a successful few years, it was established to a ‘Limited’ company. Whilst carrying out general building works and renovations, it was in 2010 whilst decorating the outside of a house, using a small ‘A’ frame ladder, that the ladder gave way as I over-stretched, landing flat on my back on the floor. It immediately became apparent that the situation I had gotten my self in to could have been prevented. As a business owner of a long running, reputable building & decorating company, personal injury to me is catastrophic. So a solution was needed to prevent this from happening again and I needed to find a way to help balance safely whilst decorating. One of my hands would always need to be free to obtain a constant, firm grip on the ladders. After searching in several merchants, DIY chains and on the Internet for a tool to aid me, we discovered that nothing for such a task was available. A few weeks later on a sunny day, I took the opportunity to play Frisbee® with my daughter in the garden. As I held the Frisbee® my imagination took over and the Betsy Paint Mate® was born. I realised that the product was very strong and flexible and after folding it in half I knew this was just what was needed; I took a trip to the DIY store and bought myself a sheet of Perspex. I started

experimenting and after a couple of different ideas, I managed to put something together that resembled a paint carrier to help me finish my decorating. Now having one hand free to hold onto the ladder this rapidly made my job much easier and a whole lot safer. In 2011 we decided that we would take this further. With the help of our business adviser Angie, Emma and I were put in touch with Mark Newland, a product designer and engineer who rendered all the technical drawings. After several months of product design and research in the summer of 2012 we had the first prototype. We now had to move fast and created the Betsy Group (UK) Ltd. Patented the design and trade marked “Betsy®” and “Paint Mate®”. It all now became very real and very exciting. It had taken us 2 years to get this far and new the journey in to producing the Betsy Paint Mate® had only just begun. After 3 years of extensive market research with the trade and the general public and taking on board the fantastic feedback and constructive comments. In 2014 we made the final changes and now we have a product that it the perfect decorators companion. We are extremely proud to announce that the Betsy Paint Mate® will be available to buy from spring

2015. It’s manufactured in the UK and comes with a 12-month guarantee. The response both from the trade, professional associations, health & safety professionals, and the public has been outstanding. We strongly believe that the Betsy Paint Mate® will keep you safer; possibly reducing serious injuries and potential deaths. It even makes the decorating task in- hand just that little bit quicker. For 2015 & beyond we are working on many more exciting innovative products to run alongside the Betsy Paint Mate® so keep a look out for them.

James Tiller MARLA Lettings Manager & Client Accounts

Ellie Mattison Senior Lettings Specialist

Anna Corbridge-Atkins Lettings Negotiator

Expert local knowledge from the YOUhome Bournemouth lettings team are the Q. What best buy to let bargains in

Bournemouth?

James: Bournemouth is a thriving market for young professional couples with some unable to afford deposits to buy. We believe this demographic will underpin demand for some time to come. Good quality one or two bed properties in areas with easy access to the town centre such as Meyrick Park, Charminster, Westbourne and Boscombe are particularly attractive. Ellie: We see an ever increasing demand for housing in Bournemouth and Poole both to rent and to buy. Charlotte: There is also a strong student presence in Bournemouth, with two universities and a

host of language colleges. Accommodation for students is changing and moving away from the traditional large houses, many students now prefer to be in smaller properties. With a large market students will be looking for the best accommodation possible and within their affordability.

often should Q. How my property be inspected? Roxanne: As part of our fully managed service we carry out quarterly inspections at our properties. This timeframe offers a good balance so as not to disturb your tenants quiet enjoyment but also to ensure there aren’t any maintenance issues that might go unnoticed. It also helps maintain a good dialogue with your tenant so they feel happy and comfortable at your property.

can I Q. How achieve the best possible rent? Ellie: Focus on what makes your property stand out, good decor and high quality photos will certainly help. Ensure your property is presentable, tenants make swift decisions. First impressions really count and you only get one chance to make one. Anna: When tenants are able to pick and choose, the most successful properties that are being let are those offered newly or very recently refurbished. Roxanne: When rents achieved have dropped or remained static it is all too easy to justify holding off on improvements and maintenance with a mind to upgrading a property once market conditions have improved. This however is a self-defeating cycle. When tenant expectations are high, it is vital to ensure the general condition of a property is kept up together. James: The two most important areas to tenants are the kitchen and bathroom(s), where possible try to maintain these areas to a

good standard as this will give you a competitive edge.

can I reduce Q. How void periods? James: The best way is to be knowledgeable about the local rental market, allowing you competitively to price your property according to market conditions. Choosing the right agent is paramount, choose someone who is local to the area and experienced with renting your type of property. Timing is also very important; if a tenant does not want to renew their tenancy, we start advertising the property at least two months before the agreement ends to ensure we avoid void periods. Ellie: Finally be realistic, overpricing can lead to longer void periods. If a tenant is trying to negotiate our recommended approach is be firm but fair, think of the bigger picture.

TALKING BUSINESS

TALKING BUSINESS House talks business with Martyn Weeks from LAMCO Design

Martyn Weeks LAMCO Design Founded by Danny Weeks, father to Martyn who now leads the business, LAMCO is regarded as one of the South’s, if not the UKs leading furniture designer with manufacturing capabilities. Originally based in a small workshop off the backstreets of Winton Martyn tells “my father had an idea to create unique, bespoke furniture for the shop-fitting industry. Creative joinery has always been our family’s passion and he wanted the freedom to create his own work, where both quality and design were paramount”. During 1978 when the business first began there were very few companies tapping into the industry, and at the time, shop fitting was a steadily growing market. In the early 80s ‘Laminate’ was the new innovative material. Choosing to embrace this modern material, later to specialise, Laminate carved the company name, shortened to LAMCO. Although the market may have changed from shop fitting to bespoke furniture for the home, Martyn details “our passion to create specific furniture designs for the individual clients remains just as strong. We continue to strive to find the latest product, or material for your bespoke furniture”. Relocated to Poole, LAMCO still has their own manufacturing capacity with a new workshop, and a space to act as a platform to show the latest trends and designs. Previously being based in Winton, word of mouth was no longer enough and LAMCO wanted to show how their furniture was different, with quality and attention to detail. Now people can see for themselves and only an invitation to come visit need to be said. Martyn explained to me that demand may have dictated the concentration on bedroom, lounge and home office furniture, but they still retain an abundance of knowledge and experience remaining open to new ideas and challenges. What you see now is 37 years in the making and there is still the same pride in their workmanship.

When I asked Martyn if his plans had always been to come on board and join the business alongside his father, he responded, “No, I wanted to be totally different”. Aspiring to be a car sprayer, Martyn left school, qualified and succeeded in that ambition. However and appreciatively so Martyn says “if you know anything about family businesses then you will know at an early age I was in our workshop, sweeping, making tea and later being allowed to do more… I would say helping and they might say hindering. I gained hands on experience working between shifts, (Car spraying) Saturday’s and at times of need. Before I finished school I could design and manufacture most wardrobes”. Discovering a love for the craftsmanship and building happy memories it rather made me laugh when Martyn revealed “I finally gave in and admitted actually I wanted to work with wood and joined the business in 2001. It was in my blood, and like my father I needed the creative space”.

As a family built business the question of how well Martyn and his father got on was inevitable. Martyn responded “Good, No – Great, Yes”. Bouncing off each other’s ideas and creative plans, at the end of the day Martyn tells me “he is my dad, and as a person, someone I greatly admire and respect”. A tight partnership allows the duo to be passionate in everything they do, knowing this is a way of life and not a 9-5 job. Martyn designs and manufactures things in his mind every single day, responsible from start to finish of each project. Clients know the pair from the voice at the end of the telephone, their workplace, and many know LAMCO’s fitters too. Offering the whole personal package, nothing is standard. LAMCO continues to be at the forefront of design, innovation and manufacturing, with the industry using LAMCO as their UK guinea pig to test their new innovative products. This means LAMCO have first dibs at seeing what new materials and components the industry has to offer. Today LAMCO is able to offer their customer an unrivalled choice of materials and finishes sourced from around the globe, some of which they have exclusive rights to. Put simply Martyn tells me “we can offer bespoke furniture manufactured for any size project

Every day is different. Every client is unique. Life stays very interesting. or budget”. Complementing their range and services, LAMCO offer two leading Italian manufacturers ‘MisuraEmme’ who they are solo UK agents for and a branch of ‘Jesse’. Both brands are creative and dynamic in their design and manufacturing process. Combining a fusion of all three products LAMCO can do something very special to your home, within your price range. With virtually unlimited manufacturing capabilities your wish is their command. Like an Aladdin’s lamp in the hands of some very skilled traditional craftsmanship, many of LAMCO’s customers look at the finish product and go ‘Wow’. Achieving such a fantastic reaction must surely makes your job worthwhile, and Martyn speaks up that he loves being creative. With a manufacturing background he can steer the impossible to become possible knowing the boundaries he needs to work within. At LAMCO the designers are manufacturing what they are designing so understand both manufacturing and design restraints. For Martyn “Every day is different. Every client is unique. Life stays very interesting”. I love this. Previously small, as a family run business there are always a number of challenges, in fact Martyn tells

me ‘loads’, but he is right in saying it is how you overcome these. With more challenges ahead, LAMCO has been in the business and has the experience to hop skip and smash straight through these. The economy may play a part in many businesses, but Martyn speaks positively. “We have waded through three recessions – the worse is the recent credit crunch where all new builds virtually ceased and we are still here”. Good planning, understanding and adapting to changes, LAMCO follow a mantra “Everything we do starts with the customer. What are their dreams?” Concentrating on bedroom and lounge furniture Martyn told me straight “don’t just think wardrobes; include bespoke bedside chests, headboards, blanket boxes, homework desks. In your lounge your TV stand can be changed to a home entertainment bespoke unit. Wires are hidden and a practical piece of furniture is born. Technology and our changing lifestyles demand more from each room: Bedrooms become: home offices, duel purpose guest rooms, walk in wardrobes. Valuable heirlooms have their own display cabinet. The TV’s are changing, besides getting bigger; there are currently very strong steps in producing holographic images for the home to replace TV’s. This will certainly require some kind of futuristic furniture. As you can see we are already thinking about it”. LAMCO has carefully accessed every aspect of design and manufacturing providing an answer to the unanswered. LAMCO are now actively involved with projects that are shaping London’s skyline, one of which is in the heart of Westminster with 450+ ultra highend apartments. The builders and designers want a fresh new approach, and LAMCO is creating some exceptionally exciting designs for them. There will certainly be a lot of interest when completed. The South including London is becoming a rapidly expanding market making this an exciting time in the companies growth. There is a new breed of clientele seeking value for money, uniqueness, and flexibility within fitted furniture. Working with some of the leading designers and architects in the South, including London, LAMCO continue to be challenged with some ground breaking designs for award wining developments. Their goals still remaining integral “What are our client’s dreams”.

MAISON CREATIONS LAUNCH NEW SHOWROOM Maison Creations owned by local Property Developer Nihad Obagi and project managed by Simon Grinstead held two glamorous champagne launches at their new Branksome Showroom recently which were attended by many local businesses and property people and even a local celebrity in the shape of Harry Redknapp.

Maison Creations Maison Creations with the involvement of project manager Simon Grinstead has been creating innovative, high quality fitted furniture for homes in the south of England for over 40 years. We are now the natural choice for finest bespoke furniture concepts and installations.

The launch led to an influx of orders and attendee Carlie O’Neill commented after the event “This is a great luxury brand and we were treated to a delightful evening of canapés and bubbles in the glamorous showroom exquisitely designed and executed by members of the design and project team. Nihad commented “It was great to have friends and clients and future clients share in the launch of the Maison Brand and we look forward to working with some of the best designers in the industry and with property developers who are in need of bespoke elements to their projects.” Project Manager Simon Grinstead formerly owner of Cupboard Love has known Nihad for over 20 years and it seemed a natural progression for Nihad to encompass the brand and relaunch as Maison. The quality of work speaks for itself and they decided to join forces and rebrand. This means exciting times ahead for the brand.

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. 54

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.

LAND & PROPERTY DEVELOPMENT

AJ DEVELOPMENTS Not many of us believe in fairies these days, however that pot of gold at the bottom of the garden may still be within your grasp with the help of AJ Developments. Not many of us believe in fairies these days, however that pot of gold at the bottom of the garden may still be within your grasp with the help of AJ Developments. Selling off part of a large garden is a growing trend across Dorset as developable land is used up. For some of us at least, parting with our piece of green could sow the seeds for a better financial future. With an esteemed reputation in and around the local area, AJ Developments have a proven history of acquiring and developing residential and commercial sites, which other developers have overlooked. Not adverse to discussing plots and land that may have been refused permission previously or have other planning issues, AJ Developments are notorious for exponential success with such sites, achieving a 95% success rate. A different option for those with large gardens is to build a second home on part of the garden and move into it, selling the original property. AJ are able to release equity by selling off unused/difficult to maintain land whilst retaining up to 95% of current market value of your property. This is particularly popular with older homeowners who prefer to stay in the same area but in a modern bungalow to their old 1930s detached plus they still retain a manageable chunk of their mature garden. Maximising the potential for open land, gardens and redundant buildings, AJ endeavor to design and construct homes in keeping with the communities they fall within.

56

Agents who introduce AJ Developments to any development sites will receive a 3% fee on acquisition. AJ will always retain the introducing agent for the resale of the new property. They are also able to offer initial architectural assessments within 24

hours, which allows an extremely fast decision making process. With a full pipeline of works and contracts, AJ are a cash rich business, who are able to make quick decisions on land, shortening the timeline of the traditional lengthy sale/planning process. Part of their success has previously hinged on the swift submission of approvable plans and the urgency of their Land acquisition department. Flexible with timescales AJ are able to accommodate to suit the sellers requirements,

Agents who introduce AJ Developments to any development sites will receive a 3% fee on acquisition. typically between 3 months and 2 years. Their honest and conversant approach will ensure that you are fully informed before making decisions to sell to AJ, or enter into an agreement with their team. Mark Adams and Sebastian Janes formed AJ Developments in December 2010. With over 15 years combined experience within the construction and development space, the business has taken on several facets and has sustained continuous growth over the last 5 years. Fulfilling this void with affordable luxury housing solutions, AJ Developments have forged a stellar reputation for

producing the highest quality Houses, combing meticulous detail and innovative spatial ideas with a professional and fun service. Having recently made extremely positive waves in the Dorset and Hampshire area; setting ground breaking precedents AJ have, and continue to establish themselves, as a trusted, eminent business, who also provided career and contract opportunities for local and national trades. AJ can be trusted to invest and nurture the relationships that they continue to build with agencies, authorities, organisations, private individuals and Town Planning associates to provide the best results for the end users and homeowners that they come into contact with. If you have any opportunities you wish to discuss, irrespective of their size, history or location please contact us. T. 01202 940206 E. info@ajdevelopments.net W. www.ajdevelopments.net


LAND & PROPERTY DEVELOPMENT

Above: The owner of this property wanted to raise additional funds whilst remaining in their home. AJ Developments were able to achieve planning in 4 months from agreeing a price, and the planning approval increased the value of her rear garden from £50k to £350k. Left & Below: This bungalow was owned by a family for many years. It was in need of some major repair and refurbishment. AJ Developments were able to offer the family 30% above the market value, as a result of thier unique planning proposal.

Your Local Professional Letting Experts I would like to introduce myself as your local and dedicated Lettings Manager. I will be your point of call when exploring all lettings options. Our team have had an incredible start to Spring 2015 and we are letting properties is most cases within 24 hours of instruction. More than 5 properties have been let this month before they even reached marketing level on Rightmove. This is certainly a representation that the rentals market is as buoyant as ever and more interestingly I have noticed in some cases we are achieving approximately a 27% increase on rental prices from last year.

HOME IMPROVEMENTS

HERTS BIFOLD DOORS EXPAND After the excitement of The Home Building and Renovating show 2014 we at Herts Bifold Doors are not sitting on our Laurels. Due to the exceptional client response at The Home Building and Renovating show we have already booked our stand for 2015, with it taking place at Excel next year, onwards and upwards! As I’m sure many homeowners and developers have noticed, the trend for home builds shifted firmly away from your usual French door solutions, with high demand for both bi-fold and large pane sliding doors. This change in direction has pushed us to make one of the biggest steps we have taken so far. We have acquired a larger second premise! This larger premises will give us the flexibility for more storage to cope with our increased orders; allow for new up and coming products to be showcased in our expanded showroom and house our rapidly growing team of staff.

86

The Show provided us with a specific insight into customer requirements during their current and future builds. Not only has there been a huge interest in our Origin, Schuco and Timber products, as we are now offering the AIR large pane sliding door with its captivating and refined design offers a world of boundless possibilities.

As we move our storage facility into a second building we will have the much needed space to expand our product range. First on the list, an AIR sliding door. This Aluminum range offers exceptional weather, security, insulation and noise reduction capabilities that can stand years of daily use. We are more than excited to welcome this new addition. This large pane sliding door will fit perfectly into our developing luxury style of products available for installation. The large expanses of glass, which these doors provide, is ideal for any style of home, making the most of the outside views. Watch this space, our developments won’t be stopping there! Also we are looking to install a Sunsquare roof light to offer an all glass frameless truly modern and contemporary look for any property. Here at Herts Bifold Doors we are constantly striving to offer high-end bespoke products at affordable prices to all our clients. Using our strength as a supplier installer we are able to choose the best products on the market currently and offer them at exceptional value, letting the client make the choice. We look forward to seeing you in the future!

Bridging Loans – Myth Busting There appear to be many negative misconceptions surrounding bridging finance. As a member of the Association of Bridging Professionals, I am frequently asked; “what exactly is a bridging loan, do I need one, how do I get one, how much does it cost?” Bridging loans are short-term financial solutions used to help

you bridge a gap between two scenarios. Terms of up to 12 months are agreed as standard, although shorter terms are common and longer terms can be agreed in certain circumstances. They are mostly used to purchase a property where a quick sale is needed or where the property needs refurbishment before it can be made habitable - they can also be used if a property investor or developer, for instance, needs a quick route to funding to secure a property, obtain planning permission and start developing the site - however it is worth noting that they can also be raised against existing properties for any legal purpose. High Street Banks do not currently offer bridging loans so it remains an area that is only supported by specialist and private lenders. Market leading rates are at around 0.65% per month, but rates can be up to 2% per month. Fees can vary substantially too and are likely to include arrangement, legal, valuation and exit fees. Loans can be arranged for individuals or limited companies and

declare everything about your situation at the outset. Lenders really do not like discovering something negative which they feel ought to have been disclosed. Because the time frames for completing bridging loans are usually far shorter than for standard mortgages, there may be less time to rectify matters or convince the lender

that there is nothing else that has not been disclosed.

InsigniaBlinds THE BETTER BLIND COMPANY

Installing window blinds is one of the easiest and most effective ways to instantly change the appearance and practical use 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 the key advantages of installing blinds in your home. 1. Control Light and Heat Entering a Room or Conservatory 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 it according to your own needs. 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.

5. Easy to Maintain One of the best things about window blinds is that they are very easy to maintain. Many blinds simply require a quick wipe with a damp cloth from time to time to remove the dust. Compared 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, meaning you won’t have to replace them until you decide you are ready for a change.

6. Extend your home and seasons Finally Insignia Blinds offer a range of Patio and Sun awnings to both extend and protect your home during the warmer months. Sun awnings are a convenient way to extend the use of the patio or deck for leisure, as well as protecting furnishings and carpet from the harmful sun rays. 2. Countless Styles, Colours & Patterns Insignia Blinds have a range of awnings to suit Blinds come in an endless variety of styles, colours every budget or requirement with professional and patterns, allowing you to create the perfect installation included. look in your kitchen, living room, or bathroom. All blinds purchased from Insignia Blinds are child safe Find the Perfect Blinds, compliant. 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 it by installing wooden blinds or 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.

Shutters or Awnings 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, they also don’t have to cost the earth.

DIARY OF A LETTING AGENT Sharon Canning Move on Rentals

BRITIAN’S TENANTS ON BENEFITS Are you watching ‘Britain’s tenants on benefits’? Are you shouting at the TV, making remarks on Facebook with your friends? If you haven’t been watching, the programme follows letting agents who deal with mainly housing benefit tenants and the mayhem it causes for the letting agent and the landlord, when tenants simply refuse to pay their rent, the legal process that has to follow and how letting agents really do try very hard not to go down the judicial route and try and help the tenant to either an agreed payment term or help them with benefit forms, or even help them with finding alternative accommodation. One episode showed the bailiffs turning up to a flat, with two men who were high on drugs, and telling the TV crew, ‘we don’t understand, we haven’t done anything wrong!’ The letting agents then had to empty the flat and move the syringed needles. I have said on many occasions, there are no two days the same in our industry as you really don’t know what the day will bring unexpectedly. Of course, the good tenants on benefits will probably not be shown as they just wouldn’t make good TV and I certainly wouldn’t tarnish all tenants on benefits with the same brush and I am not against housing benefit tenants, we have had some fantastic ones and losing jobs, partners and ‘life’ can sometimes mean you have no option other than to seek help with living costs, however, I am pleased to see the letting agents getting TV airing time in the episodes. It is a sad fact the majority of tenants I have evicted over the last 23 years have been on housing benefit and the main reasons for each eviction have been down to rent arrears. The tenants in question had received housing benefit, but had not paid it over to cover their rent. I have been amazed at some of the reasons; it’s Christmas and I need to buy presents for my children, my car broke down and I had to pay for repairs, my account has been hacked and the bank refuses to reimburse me, I am going on holiday… and I could go on (I should perhaps write a book!). Let me explain the process. If the tenant is on housing benefit, you cannot ask for the rent to be paid direct to the landlord until the tenant is 8 weeks in arrears. It is also not fraud if the tenant claims housing benefit and then spends it (don’t get me started on that one). From being 8 weeks in arrears and going to court, can take between 4-6 months, and if bailiffs have to be instructed this can be a further 2-6 weeks on top. (This is assuming all the paperwork is correct and certain legal paperwork can be proved as being given to the tenants during the term of the tenancy.) So when you see bailiffs attending an eviction, the tenant has had 5-7 months to find alternative accommodation. The local council will not rehouse tenants, unless they have been legally evicted, so the landlord has no choice but to go down this route. Remember, letting agents (good ones), will do their upmost to try and avoid going down this route. We are often the social worker and mediator trying to resolve things amicably.

TALKING BUSINESS

TALKING BUSINESS House talks business with Jane Swift from Marsham Court Hotel

Marsham Court Hotel In times gone by, the Edwardian Marsham Court Hotel was famous for its warm welcome and the wonderful dancing in its Terrace Ballroom. Mr and Mrs Marsh, who had a ham curing business, originally owned the building, which is where the Marsham name came from. The hotel has evolved a great deal since then, undergoing extensive and contemporary refurbishment and a name change. But its ethos has remained the same - to offer its guests exceptional hospitality. Now the hotel is going back to its roots, with a stunning rebrand which will restore the name Marsham Court Hotel. One of the first family-run hotels in Bournemouth, the cliff top Marsham Court offers the most fantastic views across Bournemouth beach and attracts a diverse clientele from far and wide. Bournemouth is becoming ‘the’ place to be for business and leisure and Marsham Court is able to accommodate accordingly with 87 smart bedrooms and nine meeting and conference rooms catering for up to 230 people. Jane Swift, Business Development Manager tells me “We have a very flexible approach with our business clients. We listen to their needs and their budgets and come up with packages to suit their requirements”. Having peered into some of the meeting rooms myself, it is obvious to see why Marsham Court is a popular choice; Spacious rooms equipped to cater a wide range of activities and functions, some of which offer views of cobalt seas and powder blue skies, wow.

standard’ is a way of life for the Marsham Court team. It’s this attention to detail combined with the friendly relationships guests have built with the family and staff that guarantees success. Some newer faces to this seaside town might know Marsham Court as Days Hotel, but as part of the rebrand the family has chosen to revert back to their roots. Previously a well-known name to those locals who’s home has remained a constant in Bournemouth, with an excellent reputation; the name change is hoping to jolt memories. Besides taking us on a journey back, the family chose to undergo the rebrand to finance a much needed refurbishment program in 2011 when they branded to Days. £1.5 million pounds later the hotel now has a very fresh look, benefitting of a hotel in such a vibrant town.

One of the few family run and owned businesses in Bournemouth, this independently owned and operated hotel has total control over how the business is run and this allows the team at Marsham Court to adapt their program to suit guests expectations. As Jane explains: “The family is very much at the forefront of everything”. Staff remain loyal to the hotel as valued members of the team, and the customers enjoy returning to familiar faces. As Jane rather nicely puts it: “every member of the team is unique with different attributes that help them work well together. Almost like a family within a family”. The belief that ‘first class service should be given as

During the recession Bournemouth suffered from an overall decline in conference business and for Marsham Court this had a knock on effect. A need to diversify the Marsham Court found solace in offering specialised package holidays. Using research that a large percentage of guests enjoyed dance, they began putting together unique packages that would appeal to them. This has proved very popular and Marsham Court now offers a variety of package holidays from Bridge and Whist to 8 different dance breaks and more recently Mah-Jong and watercolor painting. With most of the groups providing rooming lists a year in advance, this strategy has provided the business with a more secure future.

1923, 41 bedrooms

When the family came to Marsham Court in 1987 the hotel was tired and worn. But they embraced this with a passion and with their guests at the forefront of their minds. As a result, guests show their loyalty - like Bob Gibson, who has been coming to spend Christmas at the Marsham Court for the past 23 years. People who previously visited with their children are now returning with their grandchildren. Continuing to love and nurture the hotel the owners are determined their clients think of it as a place where they can rely on a friendly welcome by professional staff.

TALKING BUSINESS

TALKING BUSINESS House talks business with David Ragg from Lansdowne Florist

David Ragg

Lansdowne Florist How did the business begin? My parents bought the existing Lansdowne Florist in 1991 and the business was in a pretty sorry state! The previous owners has run it into the ground but given the shops excellent location in the heart of Bournemouth’s bustling business district we all saw great potential! I am a third generation florist so the floral world has always been in my life. My parents had previously owned a very successful flower shop business in Berkshire, which they sold at just before the start of the early 90’s recession. A year later they realised the opportunity with Lansdowne Florist and took a punt with it. Although those early years were tough, as they were for many retailers, we bought a fresh new look to the floral world in Bournemouth and very soon become the most talked about flower shop in the town. What made you choose to begin your own floristry business? I joined my parents business initially and in fact had been managing their previous flower shop in Berkshire for some time. Ultimately though I did take on full ownership of the business in 2000 alongside the support of my wife. I have always enjoyed the challenge of business and although not always easy I knew that there was always great potential with Lansdowne Florist. I’m a naturally artistic and creative person and I’ve certainly enjoyed channeling this through the medium of flowers, not just by supplying first-rate floral gifts for consumers but also by experimenting and getting involved in numerous floristry competitions. Working with flowers can be a very rewarding career to be in given that nearly all the gifts and designs we supply have an emotion attached. As a florist you are sending peoples’ heartfelt messages to loved ones, friends or colleagues – it’s very important we get it right! How have you seen the business grow since first beginning? The early days of the business when my parents acquired Lansdowne Florist were certainly tough without doubt and I must admit wondering at times if it would ever work. As the recession eased through 1993 business certainly picked and certainly there was huge growth through the next seven or eight years – even to the point that at times I referred to the shop as being a “monster out of control”! There have been much harder times recently and the market has changed drastically with so many places selling flowers but the opportunities are still there if you know where to look!

138

What is your best selling flower? It’s got to be the Rose. With so many amazing colours available the Rose is still at the forefront of many of today’s floral gift designs. It’s worth remembering though that roses come in many shapes and sizes and I do tend to steer clear of the cheaper, shorter

stem varieties for general shop use opting instead for long stemmed large headed varieties grown specifically for colour and longevity.

same day delivery service and our highly visual orange delivery van can be seen anywhere from Highcliffe to Hamworthy and Westbourne to Wimborne!

How do you plan to grow the business? This year I am planning a number of strategies that will strengthen our position in the local and national market. Some of these are under wraps at present but I will launching a whole new range of floral gift products this year that will only be available online and will be marketed under a totally different brand. This coupled with ongoing digital marketing will provide an additional revenue stream for the business. I will be looking to build firm relationships with local businesses this year offering a trustworthy and affordable corporate flower service. Customer service is my priority whoever the client, and again, I am constantly looking for ways to enhance this side of the business. I am also planning to develop my own Flower School package for people to follow at home either by DVD or streaming content from the Internet. Having held many tuition groups in the past there is a definite desire in people to get hands-on with flowers.

Do you do many events? If so what’s your most popular? We undertake a number of weddings each year and these can be taking place at venues as far afield as the Home Counties to more local favourites such as Lulworth Castle or Rhinefield House. But alongside the more obvious event work comes a variety of projects that may involve us working with leading global brands such as Sunseeker International to whom we supply all the floral decoration for the Super Yachts on display at Southampton Boat Show each year. We are also are the preferred supplier for many of the top local hotels and again, work very closely with these clients to ensure the events they are holding meet their own clients expectations. The other main event that I personally get involved in each year is the RHS Chelsea Flower Show. I first got invited to exhibit at Chelsea in 1998 and won a Gold Medal on my debut, and since then have exhibited as Lansdowne Florist for much of the following 10 years.

What makes Lansdowne Florist unique in comparison to your competitors? For over 20 years we have been leading the way in the floral design arena. I am proud to say that I am the owner of no less than 6 RHS Chelsea Flower Show Gold Medals for my exhibits or involvement with Professional Floristry Exhibits since 1998. Not only that, in 2000 I was crowned Interflora Champion Florist for the UK & Ireland and my colleague in the business, Franco Martinez was also crowned Champion Florist in 2009– no other florist in the country can boast that level of talent! We continue to be at the forefront of floral design whilst maintaining a realistic view on how the products should be priced in a very competitive market. We have a contemporary style that is echoed in our branding and packaging and this is due to be redeveloped and enhanced this year. Keen Social Media fans our Facebook page is likely to see plenty of activity over the next few months with offers, competitions and even giveaways. The shop is a smart, modern environment, with neatly displayed flowers and accessories and in stark contrast to many flower shops that seem overstocked with gifts and artificial blooms. We offer an extensive

What are your goals for the future? I have a bit of 5 year vision in fact! I see there is great potential in the retail flower. The online side of my business has seen excellent growth over the past 2 years and with a real focus on this I am expecting to see even greater results in the next 12 months. Along with the launch of the new brand and product range my goal is to firmly establish the business as the leading supplier of quality floral gifts and accessories in the area (if not regionally or nationally!). As someone who has been surrounded in flowers all their life it would be easy to have lost the desire but I think I’m lucky in that every day is different and unpredictable, we are in the business of sharing peoples’ emotions and, mostly, I’m never one for standing still – onwards and upwards!

TALKING BUSINESS

TALKING BUSINESS House talks business with Andrew Findley from Mathexcellence

Andrew Findley Mathexcellence Why did you choose to begin Mathexcellence? As a maths specialist, I discovered that so many pupils find maths unnecessarily difficult, simply because they don’t know their times tables. I experimented with many different ways of teaching times-tables and the Mathexcellence Speedboard evolved as the most effective way for pupils to learn. The speedboard is an A4 sized whiteboard with 80 random times tables questions. Students simply fill in the answers, wipe the board an start again. Very quickly they know all the answers. Simples. Have you always been interested in beginning your own business? Always. It’s a lot of work but I enjoy the freedom to make my own decisions. Why do you believe Mathexcellence Speedboards are a useful and an important learning tool for children? Ofsted the schools watchdog reported that “Pupils without instant recall of multiplication tables struggle at maths.” With daily practice the Speedboards transform a pupil’s speed and accuracy of recall in just a few weeks. Because pupils are working against the clock, the boards have a competition element and this is a great motivator as learners are able to easily measure their progress. How can Mathexcellence benefit a child’s future? Three ways – 1. Fast recall of times tables gives pupils greater general confidence in a subject that so many find daunting. 2. A strong grasp of times-tables provides a solid foundation to tackle more complex maths. 3. Most importantly, many parents have remarked that their child’s attitude and achievement has improved in other subjects as they have made the life changing link, sometimes for the first time, between purposeful practice and success. It is understanding this association that transforms a child’s future!

How have you seen the business grow? I first developed the board for my own students but as parents started to see the difference the boards were making they started telling their friends and demand grew simply through word of mouth. Schools are also now starting to show interest. I originally ran a trial study with a year 5 class in a local primary school. The head teacher was so impressed with the difference the boards made, the school ordered boards for the whole year group. What makes your business unique? There are lots of times tables learning aids, but the design of Mathexcellence boards, the emphasis on speed, the ease of measuring progress and the certificate reward system make them the best at what they do. I know this because if there was a more effective way to learn tables out there, I would have been using it. What has been your greatest achievement to date? More like achievements - every time I hear the Speedboards have made a difference. I love hearing from parents how their child now loves maths since they became the best in their class at times tables and how they now walk a little taller into a lesson that they used to dread. What are your aims and goals for the future? The aim for the future is simple – to spread the word. As far as I know, the Speedboards have a 100% satisfaction rate. I could fill pages on my website with testimonials from parents and teachers and everyone who tries one, buys one. How do you spend your free time? Outside of the business my main priority is spending time with my wife and two children, but away from the family my main passion is ultra running. I am about to depart for the Sahara desert in a couple of days to race in the Marathon des Sables. 156 miles, over 6 days, running across the desert carrying everything except a tent and water, with one of the days being a non-stop 60 miles, raising money for the charity Lionsraw.

What parents say “It’s a miracle. My son is now pestering me to help him practice his maths!” Mrs Hayley Avery (Beau’s mum)

“The Speed Board has made a real difference to the enthusiasm my child shows to learning those necessary times tables. I have tried playing CD’s in the car and they don’t work. The usual approaches don’t seem to motivate them as it is unfortunately a monotonous process. Going to buy some colourful whiteboard pens and supporting the competitive nature of beating your own score when using the board helped our son to enjoy the work and, as a result, his recall in tables has improved greatly. We’d strongly recommend it.” Mrs Liz Willingham (Jack’s mum)

“This is a brilliant tool. The Speed Board has not only transformed our children’s times tables knowledge but, as a consequence, their maths scores in general. Highly recommended!” Dr Shelley Carter (Jemima, Angus and Cameron’s mum)

“Both of our children have benefitted substantially from using the Speed Boards to improve their times table skills. Their knowledge of the tables is exceptional and their speed of recall pretty much unbeatable. It has also helped with their progression in division and longer multiplication. This has given them a solid foundation and the confidence to tackle more complex mathematics.” Mr Darron Howarth (Lucy and Freddy’s dad)

“Simply brilliant!” Mr Max Storey (Annabelle’s dad)

ABOUT US The concept of Reformed Plastics was born 15 years ago from the curiosity of its founder. Being an engineer by profession, and having had his own UPVC Windows business, and also being the practical and inquisitive person that he is, one day he decided to find out what was really happening to the waste that people were so freely throwing away. His research and interest lead him to focus on plastics, how it can be recycled and what it could be reused for. He discovered that the USA & a few European countries had been recycling and remanufacturing waste plastics into alternative timber products for many years, instead of throwing it all into landfill! Over time, slowly but surely he developed a few basic products in the form of planks and posts and very soon he began to receive interest from people wanting to know more about this revolutionary product that is both an environmentally friendly alternative to normal timber and sustainable which means it will save them a lot of money in the long term! From then on, the rest as they say is history. 146

MOTORING

MOTORING NEWS The latest news on all things motoring. By Nick Fletcher

MOTORWAY SAFETY TIPS Road safety organisation GEM Motoring Assist has issued safety advice for motorway drivers. • You may use the hard shoulder only in a breakdown, in an emergency or when directed to by a police officer. • If your car develops a problem, leave the motorway at the next exit or pull into a service area. • If you can’t make it to the next exit or a service area, then pull onto the hard shoulder and switch on your hazard lights. If possible, stop close to an emergency telephone. • Don’t sit in your vehicle, even if it’s cold and wet. You are at risk of being struck from behind. Leave the vehicle through the left hand doors and wait on the verge, behind the crash barriers, away from live traffic lanes. • Leave any pets securely inside the car. This ensures they don’t run free and cause a hazard to other vehicles. • Never use the hard shoulder to take a break. This is extremely dangerous and illegal.Always pull in to a service station where you can park safely. • Never attempt vehicle repairs yourself on the hard shoulder.

NEW RENAULT KADJAR Heading for UK showrooms this Autumn, the new Renault Kadjar, a mid-size crossover model which Renault says “delivers the best of what SUVs, estate cars and saloons have to offer in one stylish, compact package.” It is powered by small-capacity Renault dCi diesel and TCe petrol engines which offer good performance while delivering exceptional efficiency. Fuel economy and CO2 figures will be as high as 74.3mpg and as low as 99g/km, equalling the best-in-class. There will be two- and four-wheel

drive versions and manual and automatic transmissions. Active safety features will help the driver avoid low-speed accidents, stay in lane on highways, park, see in the dark and remain within speed limits, while the R-Link 2 multimedia system ensures the car is always connected to the outside world. The full UK model range, specifications and pricing will be announced closer to the UK on-sale date in the Autumn.

GOOD TO GO GREEN Keeping to speed limits can reduce fuel consumption by up to 25 per cent, says road safety expert Peter Rodger of the Institute of Advanced Motorists.

He also offers other driving tips to help reduce fuel costs and reduce pollution: • Before setting off ask yourself if you really need to drive, especially on short journeys where you can walk or cycle. Your engine stays cold when you drive less than two miles and your car will produce 60 per cent more pollution than a warm engine – avoid these short journeys where possible. • Use alternative green fuels that contribute to the reduction in CO2 emissions if possible. Remember never fill the tank right up as this also reduces fuel efficiency. • Making sure you keep to the speed limit not only ensures you avoid the risk of incurring a fine, but also ensures you reduce fuel consumption by up to 25 per cent. • If you drive a manual car use block gear changes on deceleration. For example, go straight into second gear from fifth gear if possible and appropriate – this will save a lot more fuel. • If it is safe to do so, switch off your engine when you are stuck in a long queue but ensure that you remain alert and prepare for traffic to resume.

WEDDING HAIR TIPS FROM THE AWARD WINNING SIMONE THOMAS SALON A bad hair day on your wedding day is simply not an option, so seek professional help. The Simone Thomas Hair & Beauty Salon recently won the award for Best Wedding Hair at The Dorset Wedding Awards so we think we are well placed to offer hints, tips and advice on perfecting your wedding hair for your big day. You may be lucky enough to have a hairstylist who you trust completely, who knows your hair better than anyone else and can create your dream wedding hairstyle. If you don’t, well, you’ll simply need do some research. Set up consultations: the only way to determine if a hair stylist is right for you. Skip this step and your wedding look may be more hair-raising than head-turning.

BEFORE

Come Prepared When you’re meeting with your wedding hair stylist for the first time, keep in mind that since he or she doesn’t know your personal tastes, you’ll need to show as well as tell. The best way is to gather photos from magazines that feature hairstyles you like and search wedding hairstyles online. Wear white to your consultation – even a white T-shirt – so that your hair colour will be showcased with the right hue. You should also choose a shirt with a neckline similar to your gown – different hairstyles lend themselves to particular necklines. Once your headpiece is in place, it will make your hairstyle look different, so it’s important to bring it along for the consultations.

AFTER BOURNEMOUTHS AWARD WINNING CLINIC: DORSET VENUS AWARD 2013 BEST UK SMALL AESTHETIC CLINIC 2013 UK AESTHETIC MEDICAL PRACTIONER OF THE YEAR 2014 Offering the following treatments: Anti-Wrinkle Injections • Dermal Fillers • Cheek & Lip Fillers • Sculptra • PDO Thread lifts • Restylane Skin Boosters • Genuine Dermaroller • Medical Microdermabrasion • Obagi Nu-Derm • Blue Radiance, VI & pH Formula Peels • Lustre Acne Treatment • INTRAcel for skin tightening & scar reduction • IPL/Laser for hair removal, thread veins, tattoos, age spots, & hyper-pigmentation • Hollywood Eye Magic

Book your free consultation today on 01202 237 788 Dr.Linda Eve MBBS. is a leading UK Cosmetic Industry Expert, Key Opinion Leader, Trainer and regular Conference Speaker

Document It Since a wedding consultation can take place months before your actual event, it’s important to keep notes and take pictures so you can both remember what worked. Decide How It Will Work Before you hire a stylist you need to decide a few things: Do you want him/her to come to you on your wedding day or would you rather go to the salon? Will he/she only do your hair or the bridal party’s as well? Do you want him/her to come and stay with you throughout the day to do touch-ups before the photo session and the ceremony? Clock It During your hair trial run, time how long it takes to get your mane perfect, then allow that amount of time plus a half an hour of leeway. Do the Do When the wedding day arrives, put your undergarments on under a button-front shirt so you’ll be ready to slip on your dress when your hair is done and your headpiece and veil are in place.

HEALTH & BEAUTY

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

ALL ABOUT THE EYEBROW Shape Up Brows can make or break a face. And with eyebrow superstars rapidly emerging like Cara Delevigne, Emilia Clarke, and Rita Ora, inspiration for expertlyshaped brows is everywhere. But celebs have beauty stylists. Left to our own devices, the average person isn’t exactly a master eyebrows craftsman.

best. Taking into account your facial features, the natural shape of your brow and of course your wishes, your therapist can create beautifully groomed brows, opening up and enhancing your eye area. Although we commonly say eyebrows are sisters and not twins, a well-shaped brow will bring a symmetrical harmony to the face that from only £8 is an essential in salon treatment.

Whilst the trend followers showcasing the scouse brow have no shame resembling an attack with a permanent marker pen I advise a more subtle approach to working with this facial feature to enhance and frame the eye area.

So once you have created the colour you want its time to shape the brows. A variety of methods including waxing, plucking and threading can be implemented to achieve the same outcome – your therapist can advise which method will suit you

Common Eyebrow problems…….

5. Mistake: Laying the eyebrow makeup on thick The Fix: Use light, short strokes instead of pressing down or dragging lines all the way across. It’s easier to control what you’re doing that way.

1. Mistake: Fixing a uni-brow by over-widening your eyebrow gap The Fix: Hold a thin makeup brush or pencil and line it up vertically with the edge of your inner tear duct. That’s the farthest an eyebrow should be plucked.

The Professional Way

2. Mistake: Matching your brow colour to your hair exactly The Fix: Whether it’s dye or a brow pencil, picking a shade of brown with a slight tint that goes with

3. Mistake: Ignoring your natural arch The Fix: When plucking, match the bottom edge to that top arch. You’ll find the arch becomes more distinct when you shape it’s opposite side. 4. Mistake: Sparsely-haired brows The Fix: Fill those brows, girl. Invest in an eyebrow pencil in an appropriate shade. No clue which shade to buy? Go to a department or makeup store and ask one of the beauticians walking around for advice. They’ll be happy to help or even fill in your brows right there to show you how it looks. You’re not obligated to buy the makeup.

So my first piece of advice – leave it to the professionals. This will only prevent you having to sit tight and wait whilst you let over plucked eyebrows re-grow - the phrase ‘a watched pot never boils springs to mind’. Visit a reputable salon offering a variety of eyebrow treatments. Although tinting the eyebrows can often unnerve clients this is a great way of adding volume and definition to a brow without a radical colour change. Note - a good salon will always patch test prior to any tint application.

your hair colour is usually your best bet. For blondes, you can opt to go several shades darker than your hair; in fact, that’s how most natural light blondes look.

ALL OF OUR FITTER THAN FIT CLASSES ARE DESIGNED WITH THE SAME GOALS IN MIND TO IMPROVE FITNESS BY STRENGTHENING HEART & LUNGS TO TONE & STRENGTHEN MUSCLES TO BURN CALORIES & FAT

WE CAN HELP YOU GET THAT SUMMER BODY... BUT DON’T JUST TAKE OUR WORD FOR IT I wanted to get down a couple of sizes before my holiday and I had seen my friend loose almost 2 stone after going to Fitter Than Fit so I decided to give it a go. The first class was free so I had nothing to loose except some excess fat!

As someone who has always struggled to motivate myself to go to the gym I’ve always been on the look out for a better solution. I stumbled across Fitter Than Fit by accident and thought I’d give it a go. Fun, friendly and most importantly, no egos.

What I loved about the classes was everyone was so friendly, Charlie and Mike who take the classes were very supportive and made it fun by throwing in some Thai Boxing exercises that have not only toned my legs and bum but also taught me some helpful self defence techniques, I couldn’t be happier with the result which took about 7 weeks!

You really do only get out what you’re prepared to put in, but to have people there to motivate you towards your goal makes all the difference. In the first six months Fitter Than Fit helped me lose well over a stone in body fat. No two sessions have ever been the same. It’s hard work, with a firm but fair mentality, but you will not find a more engaging, enjoyable and rewarding way to exercise. It’s changed something I used to dread into something I can’t wait for.

I am more confident, have more energy and feel great.
