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%. Kate West, Divisional Lettings Director for Goadsbys Central Region, 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”. Kate continues “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 Kate to discuss in more detail; 01202 537333 or email kate.west@goadsby.com

The LivinRoom Orangery is a truly multifunctional home extension, creating a pleasant and relaxing space. Alternatively it can be used as a perfect family room. The LivinRoom Orangery uses the well proven Ultraframe Classic roof at its heart, and a well-engineered internal framework is added, then plastered, to give a perimeter ceiling all the way round. The LivinRoom Orangery can be used in a range of shapes from Victorian, Georgian, Lean-to and Gables. The LivinRoom Orangery is also suitable to be used with box gutters, meaning there is almost no limit to the design you can have. To further enhance the usability of the LivinRoom Orangery, down lighters and speakers can be built into the perimeter roof, so the homeowner can truly stamp their mark on this living space. A further option is the external Cornice aluminium guttering which adds to the overall external visual effect of this magnificent home improvement. For a modern, contemporary crossover between a conservatory and extension then the must have product is a Swain & Rands LivinRoom Orangery.

LOOK GOOD, FEEL GOOD- GET SET FOR SUMMER IN WESTBOURNE VILLAGE! Westbourne Village launches its ‘Look Good, Feel Good’ campaign in April. This fashion, health & beauty week aims to help women and men get ready for summer with offers, advice and an online competition with the opportunity to win daily giveaways throughout the event. The thriving urban village which boasts a huge range of independent and unique businesses will see salons and boutiques hosting special events to showcase their individual business and allow visitors to see what is new for the 2015 Spring/Summer season. Shoppers will have the opportunity to trial and discuss new trends and listen to the experts. The April campaign is being funded by the Westbourne Coastal Business Improvement District (BID) businesses. Steve Taylor, President of Westbourne Traders Association said, “We are keen to encourage visitors

to come to Westbourne and enjoy the numerous summer fashion and beauty offers that are available. There will be something for everyone. Westbourne has everything you need to help you look good and feel good from top to toe!” Tracie Beardsley from Fab Frocks Special Occasion Boutique said, “Fab Frocks currently has the largest selection of dresses in Dorset, with more than 23 collections in store. We have a range of occasion wear perfect for those special spring/summer events. We’ve also got lots of dresses known as ‘desk to dusk’ dresses in a range of styles and very competitively priced too. Look out for our summer dress offer during Look Good, Feel Good week.” Nicola Haydon of Aphrodite Beauty Salon enthused, “Now is a perfect time to spring clean your health and beauty regime. We are looking forward to welcoming lots of existing and new clients into the salon in order to get ready for spring! Keep an eye out on our website and Facebook for special offers and events.”

Nutritional therapist Anne-Marie Fletcher from the Discount Health Centre added, “We are giving lots of advice on how to ensure that your body is in good health this spring. One of the most important steps before embarking on a detox is to make sure your body is well hydrated and the liver is working well. A detox is not about an extreme diet, it’s about gently hydrating and cleansing the body. “ Anne- Marie continued, “From Saturday 25th April to Saturday 2nd May every customer who purchases any products in store will be given a raffle ticket for every £5 spent. The raffle will be drawn the first week in May and the winning ticket will receive a fantastic basket of beauty related products.

INVESTMENT NEWS

PROPERTY IS ONE INVESTMENT OPTION – HAVE YOU CONSIDERED THE OTHERS? Our Investment and Pension specialist, Martyn Charlwood talks us through the Pension Revolution Following the momentous announcement on pensions and retirement last year, the new era of choice and freedom in retirement is upon us. We have in numerous other articles reported on the merits of pension investment and as a result of the dramatic changes which have now come into effect (6/4/2015) we really do have something to be excited about. Below we highlight some of the opportunities and attractions of pension planning and investment:

Access to 100% of a pension fund from age 55 onwards

Up to 25% of a pension fund may be taken as a lump sum, tax free from age 55 onwards

Ability to withdraw income and capital with complete flexibility from age 55 onwards and in line with circumstances which are most tax efficient

Effective tax relief of up to 77% (subject to individual circumstances)

Generally Inheritance Tax free upon death and therefore the ability exists to pass down a generation or two in a tax efficient manner

Income and investment growth remains tax free within a pension

It’s worth remembering that whilst pensions are now a more attractive investment than

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

ever before, not all pensions will permit these new rules and flexibility, not all will offer a competitive charging structure and of course, to ensure the underlying pension funds are able to maximise returns with the minimal amount of risk, they need to be managed by investment professionals. For those with pension fund values in excess of £250,000 we offer a free, no obligation financial report to consider the merits of the new pension rules and how best to capitalise upon the opportunities.

Ellie Mattison Senior Lettings Specialist

Expert guide to letting your property from the YOUhome lettings team Safety first

By James Tiller MARLA

Charlotte Hayward Lettings Negotiator

Know your tenancy agreement By James Tiller MARLA

It is important for landlords to understand the legalities of letting; there can be a risk of severe fines, penalties and even the possibility criminal proceedings if landlords are found not to be acting correctly. A good tenancy agreement not only sets out the responsibilities of the tenant, but also your obligations as a landlord. Everything from ensuring essential maintenance is carried out to protecting tenant deposits with an approved government scheme is covered.

Ensure your property is ready for letting by obtaining all the relevant certificates and safety checks. Landlords need to present their properties Energy Performance rating with all advertising. An Energy Performance Certificate must be obtained, and once you have one it lasts for ten years.

Make sure you are insured correctly. Buildings insurance is the minimum requirement. Landlord insurance packages can offer good back up should something go wrong such as a boiler breakdown, which may otherwise prove costly.

Gas safety inspections need to be carried out every 12 months, and are a legal requirement. Electrical installations should also be checked and, although not a legal a requirement, a landlord must be able to confirm electrics in their property are safe.

Know your tenant

Make your property presentable

Who are they? Are they credit-worthy? Can they afford the rent? Do they have good previous landlord references? Are they legally entitled to live and work in the UK? These are all questions that should be asked of any applicant. If something does not seem right, it’s better to be safe rather than sorry. You could end up stuck in an agreement you can’t get out of.

By Ellie Mattison

Lettings is a fast paced environment and tenants make quick decisions about properties they want to rent. A clean and well-kept property has the best chance of letting. Carry out regular inspections to keep an eye on anything that may need your attention. When making choices about repairs and upgrades, be sensible with your money but be mindful that you should protect your property and your investment. By ensuring your property is well-kept, you will maximise your chance of achieving the best possible price.

By Ellie Mattison

Before entering into a tenancy agreement, it is important to establish some facts about your tenant.

At YOUhome our aim is to make your letting experience as hassle free and simple as possible. We are one of the very few local agents who are members of ARLA and regulated by RICS which means we offer you a professional service which meets the strictest codes of practice.

CHRISTCHURCH | £569,950 LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION – this 3 double bedroom house in West Christchurch has a fabulous open outlook with views over River Stour to the golf course beyond. The approx.100 ft westerly aspect garden runs down to the river below (with a drop of c.50’ giving protection from flooding) The property has a great feeling of space and light, helped by large double glazed windows at the rear, where it’s hard to tear yourself away from the view. There is plenty of room on the ground floor starting with a generous hall, with shower room off. Doors between the lounge and dining room can be opened up to create a larger space, and doors lead out from the lounge to the terrace beyond. The dining room leads through into a super conservatory, again with great views, and doors out to the garden. The kitchen/diner has ample

room for table and chairs, and plenty of units too, including range-style cooker. For families, the property being in Twynham catchment area will be important, but all round this is a very convenient spot, being between the town centre and the Wessex Way, providing an easy route for anyone commuting out of the area, and with countryside walks nearby at St Catherines Hill. Christchurch is a delightful town with historic priory, smaller independent shops and restaurants, and train station on the mainline to London. Keen sailors and anglers will also find plenty to do, with rivers Avon and Stour running into Christchurch Harbour. N.B. Planning has been granted in the past (now lapsed) to increase the size of the property so scope to remodel if required.

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. 56

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.

58

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.

TALKING BUSINESS

TALKING BUSINESS House talks business with Michael and Georgina Reilly at Select Resorts

In 2012 Select Resorts underwent a full rebrand with the efforts and expertise of Michael and Georgina Reilly. Stripping back the business to the bare bones, the duo looked at how the company was perceived and what goals they were heading towards. Their client base is sophisticated and demanding, in search of high quality products delivered professionally. Choosing to hark back to their roots of strong values Georgina explains that “it wasn’t just about changing the logo and the website. I felt very strongly that the values of the brand had to come from within”. Choosing to revamp their office, staff room and boardrooms coinciding with the rebrand, this provided the opportunity for the staff to see and feel the changes being made. Prioritising their efforts to inform and enthuse staff Georgina states, “if they feel it, our client feels it”. Currently in a fantastic position the Select Resorts team is growing with sales picking up and the economy providing a much better state to be sat within. Sales & Marketing Director Michael Reilly tells me “it really is an exciting time”. Select Resorts Holidays Select Resorts Holidays specialise in popular destination holidays offering premium holiday resorts. Handpicking each villa, townhouse, apartment and hotel, the team have first-hand experience of many of their resorts, offering complete transparency in their business. For those travelling to new undiscovered destinations Select Resorts Holidays assist with the finer details of your holiday such as local walking trails, great seafood restaurants, or hot spots away from busier beaches to soak up the rays. It’s this unique personal approach that makes Select Resorts Holidays your one stop shop when looking to take a break away.

Georgina Reilly

Michael Reilly

With many of their clients rebooking year after year, Michaels tells me “we are now finding people who travelled with us as children are coming back to us with their own families. This is a wonderful achievement which we believe is due to our team offering our clients a knowledgeable and reliable experience.” Select Resorts Properties Purchasing property abroad is often the largest investment after purchasing your own home so Select Resorts Properties make sure they believe in every property they are offering. Internationally associated with Savills estate agents, Select Resorts Properties is proud to be the only UK based Savills International associate office. Able to assist in familiarising clients with legalities, financial, accounting and tax issues the team offer a service that goes beyond selling luxury properties. For certain clients in particular there is an certain amount of attraction that comes with buying properties overseas due to the ability to retain citizenship and residency in a variety of destinations. There are a significant number of tax benefits in purchasing in the Caribbean, Cyprus, Portugal and Spain. Select Resorts Properties specialise in this particular segment of the industry, providing clients with a wealth of potentially vital information in their decision to buy. Georgina confirms “we have to be innovative to survive”. Built and developed as a family run business, the team provide a shared focus - with everyone equally desiring to strive and achieve. It is the people and

values of Select Resorts that puts them apart from their competitors. Continually researching and adapting to market trends and needs Select Resorts place their customers at the centre of their business. Understanding their priorities, taking the time to listen and go above and beyond expectations is what makes Select Resorts that bit special. The company has been around for 30 years and is by no means in the business for quick wins. Michael tells me “we have to become agile enough to be able to meet with the challenges and opportunities out there and constantly strive to be in tune with market forces. We continue to develop and grow both sides of our business and have a great brand and product, which we want to ensure the wider world sees that too.

Mission To combine the highest standards and expertise, to provide clients and partners with a choice of outstanding property and holiday services.

Vision To imagine, innovate and deliver solutions that transform possibilities into realities.

Core Values Knowledge. Ambition.

Excellence.

ASK THE EXPERT Matthew Fleming-Duffy Cherry Mortgage and Finance LTD Mortgage and Finance Broker

A broker’s role in the digital age These days there is so much info online, and via other sources, for people to understand mortgages much better than they ever used to. Whether it’s about how the buying process works, what a fixed mortgage is or how to boost your chances of getting a mortgage it’s all freely available. I was asked if this makes a mortgage broker’s job more difficult to stand out and offer something different? As much as you could re-wire your own house, install double-glazing or even conduct open heart surgery using information sourced from the internet, you can indeed also manage your own personal finances; however, sourcing the correct financial solution for yourself can be a potential minefield and, based on the high level of misinformation and personal opinion generally found on the internet, can be very costly if you get it wrong. Financial intermediaries are specialists in personal finance. You may only look to arrange a mortgage once every few years, however a mortgage adviser is probably arranging a dozen mortgages or more, each month. That current, and extremely relevant, experience usually pays dividends when sourcing the correct lender and assisting with the mortgage application process, which – following recent Regulatory changes – has become fraught with increased difficulty. As consumers, we now rely more heavily on information sourced via the internet, whereas family advice - or ‘my mate down the pub’ - previously steered individuals into making their own - sometimes ill-informed - decisions. There are certainly more hard facts available via many consumer websites, but it can sometimes be hard to relate that information to personal experiences, circumstances and requirements. For example, something that is presented to me quite frequently is the phantom Freehold Flat, which hardly exists in England and Wales - and is practically un-mortgageable - however is marketed with irresponsible abandon. The correct way of describing these properties would be something along the lines of: a flat that is subject to a lease agreement and owns a share of the freehold of the building, however I seem to have to explain this to at least one mortgagor (and sometimes, rather frustratingly to their estate agent, solicitor and even to the lender) every month – despite all the free information available on the internet. My underlying point is that freedom of information does not necessarily translate into consumers accessing the right financial product. As a final point, let me steer away from using the word product. Whilst it is correct to discuss the merits of certain types of rates and deals as a form of product, a mortgage is not something you buy off the shelf nor is it easily disposable. You are applying for a large loan and a mortgage probably represents the largest single commitment most of us will make in our lives.

Have a question or need advice? Call me on 01202 651300 or email at matt@cherryfinance.co.uk or visit our website www.cherryfinance.co.uk. Your home may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on your mortgage. There will be a fee for the advice given, the exact amount will depend upon your circumstances but we estimate it will be £250. 90

DIARY OF A LETTING AGENT Sharon Canning Move on Rentals

DEREGULATION BILL AND MORE NEW RULINGS! Goodness me, what a month we have been through. I am almost afraid to blink in case I miss something. I am referring to all the legislation changes in the rented sector! Not keeping our eye on the ball, can be a costly mistake to our clients and I prefer to save my clients money and protect them from sudden changes that I have seen other landlords fall short of by not using a good agent!

A successful Dorset business

Abakon Ltd is fully insured, has ISO9001 accreditation and are members of The Guild of Master Craftsmen showing our commitment to providing a professional service. We provide a ten year guarantee.

Here are just a handful of titles with changes: • Smoke alarms compulsory • Section 8 And Section 13 notices changed • Deposit Protection and Prescribed information clarification • Health & Safety rulings on domestic properties including private rented properties • Blanket licensing for HMO’s • Retaliatory evictions All are too many to go into detail here, however I will try and give a quick synopsis on each. • Smoke Alarms and Carbon Monoxide alarms – all homes must have one on each floor by October 2015. A Civil penalty of up to £5000 can be given if they are not present. • Section 8 Notice and Section 13 Notice to seek possession or increase rent have now changed format. Use of the old format will not be recognised. • Deposit Protection and Prescribed information. Clarification of the Superstrike V Rodgrigues case and the Charalambous V Anor cleared up once and for all. A ‘lifeline’ has been offered for all deposits not yet protected, to be protected by mid June 2015. • Health and Safety amendment to any project undertaken in residential properties or rented properties must have a written plan of how the work was undertaken and installed. Failure to have one could result in a problem when you come to sell, as all conveyancing solicitors will be asking for a copy. • Blanket licensing for HMO’s – Good news for investors - A council cannot issue a blanket ruling if it covers more than 20% of the area, they must seek permission from the government. (Going forward) • Retaliatory Evictions – if a tenant advises of a maintenance problem and this is not dealt with then, and you subsequently issue a Section 21 notice for the property back (irrespective of whether it is related to the issue reported). The judge can throw the claim out. (This is looking to start from October).

Resin Driveways • Natural stone aggregate • • Visually stunning • • Environmentally friendly • • SUDS compliant - Permeable • • No planning permission • • Quick installation • • Give your property the ‘WOW FACTOR’ • • Approved resin contractor • With so many choices of colours and designs we can transform the look of your driveway and property

As said, lots of changes, it just means at Move On head office we have to be on our toes, (which we like to think we are pretty good at). As I always say, a good agent not only matches up quality tenants with quality properties, we also make sure all the legal side is produced correctly, which is why our strapline is; Where experience, expertise and knowledge really makes a difference!

ABOUT THE HEADLAND Hengistbury Head is a dramatic headland in Bournemouth situated to the south of Christchurch Harbour. It is an outstanding site for wildlife and archaeology and offers beautiful beaches and views across the New Forest, Isle of Wight and Purbecks. Access is easy for all ages and abilities and there is a land train linking to Mudeford Spit, and Ferries to Christchurch as well as a summer bus service to Bournemouth. It’s a great place for a day out whether you are walking or cycling. You are in the countryside but still close to the town! Unsurprisingly, it is a popular destination for informal recreation, dog-walking and as an educational resource, attracting an estimated 1 million visitors each year. The headland and harbour are internationally important sites for wildlife and archaeological remains (with 12,000 years of human occupation). All the land east of the Double Dykes is a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and a Scheduled Ancient Monument (SAM). In 1990 Bournemouth Borough Council designated the land (with the exception of the golf course and car parks) as a Local Nature Reserve (LNR).

MOTORING

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

ROAD TEST: PEUGEOT RCZ

150

Sports coupes are as much about image as they are performance, and few have more head-turning impact than the stunning Peugeot RCZ, writes NICK FLETCHER. The sleek flowing lines of the RCZ give it more visual cachet than rivals such as the Audi TT and the VW Scirocco, and though the French contender cannot match the performance of the more expensive TT, it is quicker off the mark than a comparable Scirocco and can beat then both for crowd-pulling charisma. The RCZ is powered by either a 1.6 litre turbo-boosted petrol engine offering two outputs, 156 and 197 hp, or a 2.0 litre diesel. Prices start at £22,350, with flagship versions topping £32,000. My test model was the mid-range 156 hp petrol version in GT trim, priced at £24,750 and well-specced with alloy wheels, Bluetooth, climate control, power windows, traction and stability controls and front and side airbags among standard kit, along with leather upholstery, powered and heated seats, and auto lights and wipers. It also has front and rear parking sensors. Visually, the RCZ is a delight, with a low crouched road stance which suggests eager performance. It is a styling gem which when parked attracts far more casual onlookers than an Audi TT which itself is something of an eye-catcher. The cabin is well designed and has a quality look and feel, though the styling is less dramatic than the exterior might suggest. The car does have a back seat though it is impractical for adults - far too cramped - but children will manage. And the seats do fold down to boost luggage capacity, taking it from 321 litres to 639 litres. Underway, the RCZ is lively, with a zestful 0-60 mph time of 8.3 seconds and a top speed of 133 mph. Fuel economy is good – 44.1 mpg combined.

VAUXHALL VIVA PRICES The new Vauxhall Viva, on sale this summer, will be priced from £7,995, the company has announced. The VIVA range consists of two trim levels: SE, and SL which is a trim name carried over from the original Vauxhall Viva. There will be Air Con and ecoFLEX versions of the SE trim, giving customers a choice of four well-specified models (SE, SE Air Con, SE ecoFLEX and SL). Both VIVA trim levels feature a high level of standard equipment. Tyre pressure monitoring system, city mode steering, lane departure warning, cruise control with speed limiter and front fog lights with cornering function are standard. Class-leading technology including ESP which features traction control, cornering brake control, emergency brake assist, straight line stability control and hill start assist are also standard across the range.

All VIVA models also feature six airbags, AM/FM radio with aux-in and steering wheel controls, electric front windows, electric/heated mirrors and remote central door locking. Achieving 65.7mpg combined and 99g/km, the VIVA SE ecoFLEX gets a front lip spoiler, extended rear spoiler with LED brake light and ultra-low rolling resistance tyres over the entry model. It is priced from £8,170. Priced from £9,495 on-the-road, SL trim features electronic climate control, Morocanna seat trim, leather steering wheel and 15-inch alloy wheels. Other highlights include six speakers, USB audio connection, Bluetooth music streaming and mobile phone portal. Options available include Winter Pack (heated seats and steering wheel), rear parking sensors and electric glass sliding sunroof.

ROAD TEST: FIAT 500L BEATS EDITION Fiat has had tremendous success with its chic little 500 city car, but if you think the new 500L model is just a larger version, you’d be wrong, writes NICK FLETCHER. Bigger and more versatile it certainly is, but it also has a totally different look and its own distinctive persona. Fiat says the 500L is ‘modern and metropolitan’ but don’t think it is just a city car – this mini-MPV offers so much more in terms of occupant space, load capacity, and drivability, especially in diesel form. Standard 500L models start at £13,040 but the better equipped and more ruggedly styled models top out at over £20,000. The 500L offers an engine choice which includes 1.4 litre petrol engines, a 0.9 litre turbo petrol model, and diesel options, notably an impressive 1.6 litre model which featured in my recent top-spec Beats Edition model, which is priced at £21,790. With 120 hp, this engine is smooth and flexible, with a 0-60mph time of 11.5 seconds and a top speed on 114 mph. Fuel economy is very good – 58.9 mpg combined. Standard kit on even the entry level 500L is good, and includes air-con, Bluetooth and cruise control, but the Beats test model was laden with extra features including

auto lights and wipers, matt-black 17 inch alloy wheels, rear parking sensors, side mouldings, Start&Stop, upgraded audio system, and 5 inch touchscreen. There is excellent head and legroom for occupants, even in the rear. The box-shaped boot offers 343 litres of loadspace, boosted to 1,310 litres with the seats folded down. Overall, there is a pleasant driving feel and with the 500L also scoring highly for smart looks and everyday practicality, it comes across as a very attractive package in the sector.

We wanted to know what all the fuss was about...

THE PIG ON THE BEACH

Manor Road, Studland, Dorset, BH19 3AU Dressed in yellow render, hugging each curve of this castle like building, The Pig on the beach has that fairytale like quality, where dreams feel like they could come true. Looking out onto a blue haze where sky meets sea, you do wonder whether prince charming will come galloping out to rescue his heroin. Quirky without saying ‘hi’ we are quirky The Pig has created an ambiance that welcomes all. Straying away from the rules of classic hotels The Pig aspires to entice all your senses and let those shoulders roll back and relax. Luke M Luke Deputy General Manager of The Pig, who assured me that this was his real name was kind enough to sit down with myself and have a natter over piggy and fishy bits. These were canapé treats to tempt us prior to lunch. Vivacious and apologetically passionate the essence of The Pig has been captured in the soul of Luke and I felt like I was absorbing every word into my own. Detailing the tales behind their tag line ‘from garden to plate’ Luke explained that every dish is cooked fresh giving them the ability to tweak a dish to meet certain requests that diners may have. Borrowing a garnish from one dish and a sauce from another etc. In his own words “Free styling food”. The Pig does not claim to be the next Heston Blumenthal, instead what they promise is to try and combine the freshest of ingredients available to them to create simple dishes that send your taste buds on a food adventure spanning 25 miles. (80% of all items on their menu are either home-grown or sourced within a 25 mile radius).

Flicking through the pages of a pig keeping book inscribed with the bar menu it’s these rather tactile choices that make The Pig that little bit special. Now In deep conversation, the fishy treats of crab fritters were peering up at me with their golden coat. When frantically writing notes I debated to put the pen down or not, but this really is no matter of debate. These creamy light fritters burst with a silky smooth filing that is delicate in flavour and simply delicious. Since we are dining at The Pig pork scratchings accompanied by an applesauce had to be on the menu. I tend to find crackling can be a tricky one to eat, especially in front of unfamiliar company. It can get stuck in your teeth, it can be so crunchy you can’t hear whilst eating, and other times you can’t even break into it with your teeth. Not this time. Crunchy yet able to break easily and not too loud in your mouth, I need not fear. Walking into the main restaurant the interior is synchronized with the outdoor landscape in perfect harmony. A fusion between a greenhouse and a conservatory were my thoughts, and the pairing is beautiful. The table setting is rustic, fragrant with the scent of herbs, and a medley of pastel coloured water glasses that sparkle in the light flooding through this glass cabinet. Reverting back to my ‘pig keeping’ book I opted to pick this weeks recommended white wine. This was a Chenin Blanc from South Africa. I may not have been fussy on my wine whilst at university, but I can definitely be quite picky on wine now. Smooth and just slightly sweet, it was a delight. You might usually have some crusty bread and butter to nibble

on at the table, but The Pig takes it up a notch with the option of home-herb-infused olive oil and homesmoked salt to create your own blend of dipping oil. You can even tear off some of the fresh herbs on the table and incorporate them. I hope you’re getting the sense of how zingy and alive this restaurant is, because it’s a blossoming Garden of Eden. Sat directly overlooking ‘Old Harry Rocks’ with the sea almost within reach I decided that I would like a fish dish. Having never tried Brill this would be the one for me. For those alike myself who have not actually heard of Brill until today, it is a pale if slightly translucent white fish that has been cured and finely sliced much alike smoked salmon. A delicate fish that was succulently sweet and paired beautifully with pickled apple. For me this was a contemporary dish, using natural ingredients to set the flavours of the fish alight. Choosing to compliment with heritage beetroots painting fluorescent colour across the plate, it was a stunning picture. This particular dish is available as a starter or ‘bigger size’ as The Pig describes their mains, and this is an option available on a variety of the starters. For those who would prefer a meat dish, then the lamb shoulder tender and succulent is the perfect indulgent main. Gently leaning on three corner wild garlic mash and delicately trimmed with ‘just picked’ vegetables, this dish is a prime example of displaying how each plate is evolving depending on what ingredients are available to the chef. The lamb is from their own flock and with the kitchen garden a footpath away from the restaurant, this is transparent cooking with no catch. A Chefs dream I am sure. For dessert you could be rather daring at The Pig with wild cards such as Jerusalem artichoke blancmange, which I am still left reeling over. As an unrequited chocolate lover dedicating my entire gym sessions to the act of eating chocolate after, I had to pick the chocolate dessert. A fusion of chocolate and lime perfectly balanced to create a slightly sticky chocolate cake that once spooned into your mouth alongside a tangy lime curd could have had me sing with happiness. Sharp yet sweet, both totally contrasting words, yet perfectly matched to describe this lime curd. It was a triumph, and surprisingly for myself the star of the show, stealing my heart. Jon loves a classic 80s dessert so opted for the ginger and plum Swiss roll. When asked what it was like he simply told me “I can’t tell you what they have done to this Swiss roll, but it is amazing”. I think that says it all. I have submerged myself into Never Neverland and I don’t want to leave. ‘The Pig on the beach’ really can make your dreams come true.

BAKE A DIFFERENCE THE VINTAGE WAY with Diverse Abilities, Dorset’s Disability Charity, on Friday 1st May

House had the pleasure of meeting Beccy Briley, Corporate and Community Fundraiser at Diverse Abilities, who came baring some beautiful Easter themed cakes. This year marks the 60th anniversary for the charity. Following the success of their bake sales over the past 3 years, what better way to celebrate this diamond milestone than with cake? Hoping to top trump their previous bake sales Diverse Abilities has adopted a vintage theme. In 2012 the pinnies joined in full force for the charities first bake sale as part of the release of their fantastic ‘Scrumptious home baking’ recipe book. Filled with 50 teatime treats kindly donated by staff, sponsors, a few celebrity faces including Dermot O’Leary and those who have benefitted from the company, the book is crammed with beautiful cakes and biscuits to share and enjoy. A favourite of my own had to be 2-year-old Noah’s ‘Mud Pie Cake’. Conjuring a recipe after his own

desires, the chocolate mud cake replicates a soil and mud pit crawling with worms. Of course only jelly worms. The Scrumptious Home Baking cookbook can be purchased through the Diverse Abilities website or directly from them (www.diverseabilities.org.uk). Now for the 4th year running Diverse Abilities is asking you to don your pinnies ready for the biggest bake sale yet. On the 1st of May in a collaborative effort to raise money and top the £10,000 raised over the last three years, the charity is looking for the local community to sign up and hold a vintage bake sale at work, with a club, at a community center or at home. The funds raised will help over 600 children and adults with disabilities, and their families in Dorset that Diverse Abilities supports. Sponsored by local solicitors and town planners HLF (Horsey Lightly Flynn), held throughout Dorset the bake sale is the perfect opportunity for friends, families, businesses and communities to come together to raise vital funds to continue Diverse Abilities essential work.

By signing up you will receive a rather kitsch fundraising pack containing the ingredients to put on a fabulous cake sale including bunting, personalised invites, recipes and even some adorable flags to top your cakes. Who can resist a slither of rich victoria sponge oozing with strawberry jam and butter cream or perhaps a baby chocolate chip cupcake filled with a chocolate center and slathered with chocolate icing. Mnnnn. In the famous words of Sue & Mel “Ready, set, bake!”. If you would like to hold a Great Dorset Vintage Bake Sale, please contact Beccy Briley on 01202 718266 or email beccy.briley@diverseabilities.org.uk or visit www.diverseabilities.org.uk. You can also join the Great Dorset Vintage Bake Sale event page on Facebook for on-going updates.

Chocolate and Pecan Brownies with Creme Anglaise (Serves 6) Recipe kindly donated by Dermot O’leary, Paul Shovlin & James Ginzler from their Fishy Fishy Cook Book, out now, available through all good book stores price £16.99, www.fishyfishy.co.uk Chocolate brownies are a real favourite and a great way to end a meal. We serve these warm as a dessert but you could always leave these to cool and store them in an airtight container for another time. The crème anglaise is a wonderful alternative to cream or ice cream.

Ingredients

Method

Brownie:

1. Preheat the oven to 180c/350f/gas 4.

150g dark chocolate

2. Place the chocolate and butter in a heatproof bowl and set over a pan of just simmering water. Stir gently until the chocolate has melted.

150g unsalted butter 100g pecans, smashed 3 eggs

3. Remove from heat and add the smashed pecans.

225g soft brown sugar

4. In another mixing bowl whisk the eggs, sugar and vanilla seeds until smooth then fold in the flour.

152

5. Fold in the melted chocolate, taking care not to over mix. 6. Pour into a baking tin measuring 23cm x 23cm lined with baking paper. 7. Cook for 20 – 25 mins. 8. To make the crème anglaise, pour the double cream and milk into a saucepan and add the vanilla pod and seeds. Heat gently, do not let it come to a boil. 9. In a mixing bowl whisk the egg yolks and the caster sugar until light and creamy.

10. Strain the milk and cream. 11. Whisk into the egg yolk and sugar mixture then return to the pan and cook over a low heat, stirring continuously with a rubber spatula until mixture starts to thicken (it should be the consistency of a light custard). 12. Remove the baking tray from the oven and allow to cool for a few minutes before turning out onto a cooling rack. 13. Cut into squares and serve with the crème anglaise on the side.


THE TOP 10 BENEFITS OF MICRODERMABRASION FACIALS FROM THE EXPERTS AT THE SIMONE THOMAS SALON So What Is Microdermabrasion? Microdermabrasion is a non-abrasive, fast results facial procedure that uses machine technology to treat the face, neck & décolletage. Being a mechanical exfoliation, dead and dull surface layers of the skin slough off, stimulating an increase in collagen production and rejuvenation. This advanced treatment can be used as a stand-alone maintenance treatment or upgraded as a booster treatment to most relaxation facials. For best results, we recommend a couse of gentle Microdermabrasion Facials, with treatments scheduled 7-10 days apart. Each procedure takes approximately 45 minutes to perform and there is no downtime for the skin to recover. One of the most important benefits of Microdermabrasion is its anti-ageing effect. Treated areas show visible improvements in the tone, texture, and colour of skin. Microdermabrasion can also provide excellent results for the following conditions:

Margaret, 75, living with cancer My day didn’t start too well. Everything had got on top of me and I felt really low. When I called the Macmillan Support Line, I didn’t know where to start. But somehow they helped me find the words. Just talking honestly about how I felt was such a relief. Now I don't have to cope with the bad days on my own. For cancer support at home, over the phone, call the Macmillan Support Line free

1. Fine lines and wrinkles – helps to smooth 2. Coarsely textured skin – helps to smooth 3. Decreases the appearance of acne and acne scars 4. Reduces blackheads and whiteheads 5. Minimizes enlarged and open pores 6. Rejuvenates dull, stressed or congested skin 7. Helps to repair sun-damaged skin 8. Reduces superficial hyper-pigmentation (age spots) 9. Helps to reduce the appearance of Skin Pigmentation 10. Increases the penetration of skin products It is important to realise that you have taken off the outermost layer of the skin, which is also its protection, so this is not the time to go to the beach. Be careful with your skin a few days after a microdermabrasion treatment: don’t do vigorous exercise and don’t expose your skin to the sun. Wear a gentle physical sunscreen, even if it’s a cloudy day. Don’t expect to get the same results with a home microdermabrasion kit, which works more like a scrub. In fact, you can easily overdo it and irritate your skin. Do not get a microdermabrasion treatment if you have extremely sensitive skin, diabetes, vascular conditions like rosacea, skin inflammation, bacterial infections, lack of tactile sensation, keloid scarring, cuts and abrasions, or have gotten Botox within 72 hours.

HEALTH & BEAUTY

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

THE SUNSHINE VITAMIN For a star that’s been around for billions of years, the sun sure knows how to stay in the news. A recent headline claimed that sunshine can prevent cancer. This sort of news may seem paradoxical to our understanding of the sun as a carcinogen - but it is based on recent scientific findings that Vitamin D, made in the skin with the help of UV rays, may help prevent colon, breast, even skin cancer. So does this mean that you should ditch the sunscreen this summer? The answer is a resounding no! The truth is most people do not apply the recommended amount of sunscreen, and even fewer reapply thereafter. Combined with the fact that sunscreens do not prevent 100% of UV rays, it’s safe to say that most people will inevitably get some rays directly on their skin. The key is balancespending time in the great outdoors can be greatly beneficial and fun, but be smart about daylight defence. Use sun protection throughout the year to ensure your skin gets the proper protection while you worry about other things, like running, biking or playing outside.

The Low-Down on D The Vitamin D Dilemma is no new topic. Health experts have praised its benefits for decades, even calling it the “sunshine vitamin.” But it is recent discoveries on the correlation between D deficiency and cancer risk that has made it a hot topic

CHIC Beauty Salon & Academy of Beauty

again. Thousands of people have been found to be deficient, but there are many reasons behind this. Skin colour, geographic attributes, even exercise and age are all factors. So what to do this summer? Don’t hibernate, get out there and enjoy it! There are sophisticated formulations that prevent UVA and UVB damage, while providing enhanced photoprotection with anti-oxidants and soothing and hydrating botanical extracts.

to work alongside the sunscreens and provide enhanced photo protection.

Daylight Defence

Consider yourself D-briefed!

Thinking about sun protection doesn’t have to be confined to the odd beach trip. Anytime there is daylight, there are UV rays, even on cloudy days. UVA penetrates deep into the skin and is the major contributor to skin damage and wrinkles. Both UVA and UVB can contribute to the development of skin cancer – so it’s important to find broad-spectrum coverage for full protection. Most UV blockers do not prevent sun-induced free radical formation, leaving skin vulnerable to inflammation and premature aging. Antioxidants in sunscreen formulations may help absorb those free radicals, fighting potential damage that results in photo-aging. Of course, vitamins themselves may be susceptible to breaking down with UV rays. Look for ingredient technology that addresses this issue. Encapsulated vitamins are one way around this- the vitamins are stabilized within a capsule until subjected to UV radiation, after which these antioxidant vitamins are released

I recommend Dermalogica’s Protection 50 Sport SPF 50 - This sheer solar protection treatment defends against prolonged skin damage from UV light and environmental assault. Oleosome microspheres help enhance SPF performance and counteract moisture loss triggered by extended daylight exposure. Lightweight formula helps neutralize damage and bind moisture to skin without a greasy after-feel.

So remember, while Vitamin D is essential for health and immunity, don’t skimp on the sunscreen which has a proven track record of preventing skin cancer. A healthy diet, exercise, spending time outdoors and preventing sun damage will yield happy skin all year-round.
