The Buy-to-Let market continues to boom according to recent figures from local estate agency Fox & Sons in Poole. As part of its parent company the Sequence Group, Fox & Sons has recorded nearly a 42% rise in the number of Buy-to-Let mortgages written over the first three months of this year as compared to the first quarter of 2014. “Buy-to-Let is one of the strongest performing sectors in the housing market fuelled by better availability of buy-to-let mortgages, low interest rates and house prices still within easy reach”, says Branch Manager William Shouler at Fox & Sons “With demand for rental property remaining strong and rents at an all time high, now presents a great window of opportunity for many new landlords or those looking to expand their portfolio.”

“Also, with the changes to Pensions Legislation since 5th April, there could be more potential Buy-to-Let investors looking to enter the market,” continues William. “We want customers to know that we are here as a ‘one stop shop’ to provide guidance on how to make a successful Buy-to-Let purchase – everything from finding a property and tenants through to managing the property and sourcing the right mortgage (subject to status and meeting lender criteria*).” Fox & Sons can offer a range of lettings services and advice, from matching tenants to their ideal properties to full property management, rent collection and insurance advice.

SCISSORS WELCOMES A NEW MEMBER TO THEIR TEAM Since 1963, Scissors have been committed to providing clients with the very highest standards of hairdressing and customer service, building up a fantastic reputation and becoming one of the largest and most successful salon groups within the Dorset/ Hampshire area. One of our most popular salons Bournemouth oozes sophistication and luxury. Set across two levels, the salon is very spacious, with the ground floor home to the front of house area and retail area, housing products such as Wella, GHD, Cloud Nine and Kerastraight home care products. The mezzanine floor is home to the working salon floor and has a relaxing, friendly atmosphere. Bournemouth is also home to one of Wella’s Master Colour Experts, providing clients with the most up to date colouring techniques and skills, exclusive to the salon. Through the years the salon has become a favourite with local residents, providing the very best in hairdressing, style and service.

It is with great delight that we welcome Kinga to our Bournemouth team, she has a wealth of experience within the hairdressing industry and is a firm favourite within the local area. “Kinga is a fantastic asset and brings with her years of experience and industry knowledge. It’s a pleasure to have her working with us here at Bournemouth,” says Jed Magadia, Manager of Scissors Bournemouth.

A team from Foxes Sales & Lettings will be spending a weekend living the ‘high life’ in a few weeks time as they aim to reach the summit of Britain’s three highest mountains: Scafell Pike in England, Ben Nevis in Scotland and Snowdon in Wales. The team from Foxes decided to scale the three peaks in memory and tribute to a much loved and missed colleague who sadly lost his battle with cancer last year. Money raised through sponsorship is being donated to Cancer Research UK, the world’s leading charity dedicated to beating cancer through research. The three peaks have a combined height of 3,407 metres / 11,178 feet above sea level so the team are currently training hard around the hills of Dorset to make sure they are in tip-top condition. This means they will climb over a third of the height of Mount Everest in just one day. The gruelling challenge must be completed within 24 hours, meaning each climb will need to be completed in just 4 – 5 hours, with the only sleep being on the minibus in between! If you would like to sponsor the Foxes team and help us support this very worthwhile cause, please visit https:// www.justgiving.com/Stephen-Baker13

To book an appointment with Kinga or for more information on the salon please call our award winning Front of House Team on 01202 290 888.

TEAMS SOUGHT FOR ‘OARSOME’ CHALLENGE FOR DIVERSE ABILITIES Diverse Abilities is gearing up for its annual Chinese Dragon Boat Race, taking place across Poole Park’s lake on Sunday 19 July between 10am and 3.30pm, and is looking for teams to take part. The event, supported and sponsored by Spectrum Housing Group, will be raising vital funds for the charity that supports children and adults with disabilities in Dorset. Teams are being urged to sign up and join in with the event that sees teams go head-to-head in boats decorated with dragon figureheads. Anyone can take part – companies, families or friends - no experience is required as full coaching is provided. Each team comprises of 17 enthusiastic members - 16 paddlers plus the drummer. An experienced helm will join the crew, to keep the boat pointing in the right direction towards the finish line. Sharon Wells, Events Fundraiser at Diverse Abilities, said: “This is a very lively and fun event to take part in right on our community’s doorstep. Everyone that has taken part in previous years will be aware that all participants, plus the spectators, have a fantastic day out getting into the team spirit and cheering everybody on. Whether you are a complete novice, adrenaline addict or keen boat racer, you can look forward to a thrilling ride!” Supporting the event is Spectrum Property Care, one of the largest property maintenance companies working in Dorset - looking after around 13,000 homes across the county for Spectrum Housing Group, other housing associations and the Borough of Poole. Spectrum participated in the Dragon Boat Race last year and entered three teams. Following last year’s event Tina

Partridge from Spectrum said: “Everyone that took part in the event had a great time and there was a healthy amount of competition among staff, therefore it was great for team building. We are really looking forward to this year’s event, supporting Diverse Abilities during its 60th anniversary year.” Anyone over the age of eight can take part in the Dragon Boat Race, but they must be confident in deep water and wearing a buoyancy aid. An adult must accompany participants under 18 during the event. Team entry is £170 (approximately £10 per person for a full team) and a minimum of £750 per team (just £45 per person to fundraise) is also required as sponsorship for the event. Sharon added: “By taking part in the Dragon Boat Race, you will be helping raise vital funds for Diverse Abilities. Why not take up our special offer and sign up now!” To view a snapshot of last year’s event or to find out more, visit www.diverseabilities.org.uk/events For more information, or to book your team, contact Sharon Wells at Diverse Abilities on 01202 718266 or email sharon.wells@ diverseabilities.org.uk In addition to the Dragon Boat Race, the charity organises many other types of exciting events including abseils, a castaway survival challenge, Make a Break for It, It’s a Knockout, running and cycling events, tandem skydiving and paragliding, party nights, a Rugby Lunch and great overseas events, providing everyone from all walks of life the opportunity to do something fun and exciting while raising funds for a good cause.

James Tiller MARLA Lettings Manager

Anna Corbridge-Atkins Ellie Mattison Senior Lettings Specialist Lettings Negotiator

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

By James Tiller MARLA

Charlotte Hayward Lettings Negotiator

Georgina Brittain Property Manager

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. Our RICS and ARLA accreditations means the service you receive meets the highest standards of excellence and integrity. Added to this, landlords who instruct us to manage their property will receive a Rent Recovery Plus policy, for free. So, if the unfortunate occurs and your tenants can’t or won’t pay, you will be protected.

If you are considering lettings your property, we would like to offer you a free no-obligation market appraisal. Or, if you would prefer an informal chat about the Lettings market contact us today.

SILVER ARROW

AFC BOURNEMOUTH & SILVER ARROW GOLF DAY On Tuesday 28th April the Silver Arrow Group was the proud lead sponsor of the AFC Bournemouth charity golf day in aid of Prostate Cancer. On the backend of what was a historic few days for the club, the event raised funds for an important and worthy cause at a truly splendid venue, Remedy Oak Golf Club.

It was a great day following an amazing result for the club

52

Silver Arrow provided two teams for the event; it’s safe to say we didn’t emulate the recent form shown by the football team. However, both proudly finished middle order and we firmly believe ‘it’s the taking part that counts’!

All at Silver Arrow want to congratulate the Bournemouth players, the management and staff and all those that have helped the club over the last 6 years to reach the point they are now at. An incredible achievement and one that will have a positive knock-on effect across the area! We were joined by individuals from a number of local businesses that we a have close affiliation with. We want to publically thank all those who played for our two teams; we look forward to better results next year! Josh Mitchell Founder & Managing Director of the Silver Arrow Group

“It was a great day following an amazing result for the club. We thank the Silver Arrow Group for their support as the prime sponsor of this event and look forward to working together again in the future.” Rob Mitchell Commercial Director AFC Bournemouth

TALKING BUSINESS

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

Emma Jane Interiors Emma Betsy

In the Bournemouth and the surrounding areas, there is somewhat a lacking of designers with a more traditional approach and Emma Jane accommodates to this gap in demand. Her style is luxurious yet rustic, shabby chic, harking back to the more traditional touches with a talent of making them look all fresh and beautiful. Offering a complete service, Emma can project manage your home through design, purchasing desired furniture, implicating and organising all the way through to styling a room to look its best. With many modern designers on the market Emma is able to offer clients a homely hug with flickers of charm. A step away from sharp angles and stark white this is ‘comfort furnishing’ at its best. As her motto reads…making a house a home. Emma’s most recent project currently in progress, is a beautiful 14 room detached house in Canford Cliffs. The owners approached Emma after choosing to leave behind their ultra modern apartment, which although might have been spectacular, they felt lacked a warmth and comfort. It’s a bit like a jigsaw puzzle, finding the right designer is like finding that perfect match. Looking to create a home that was inviting,

cozy and luxurious her clients felt Emma was the perfect match. In fact to Emma’s delight she tells me “they said yes to me before I had even given them a price.”

the pleasure of caressing this seaside home with her expertise, this has been one of Emma’s most favorite projects to date.

Renovating a whole house is a huge undertaking for any client and the relationship between client and designer is paramount in striking the right balance. Emma tells me “the couple I am currently working with are the dream clients. They take my decision as final, and it’s so lovely to have someone trust you to be in control of the destiny of their home”. Over the moon to have

A 2-year project, 8 months in the making, each room is required to have its own personal touch dedicated to the person who will be spending the most time in it. The couple’s granddaughter visits on a weekly basis and Emma has recently finished addressing her bedroom. A dainty butterfly and bird theme has been adopted transcending through fabrics, soft furnishings, encapsulating the lighting and finishing touches. Delicate and cute Emma has created a room perfect for the little ladies visit yet still in keeping with the home. Throughout the rest of the home Emma has cautiously chosen to use a dark oak and matching curtain poles to seamlessly interlink each room. When I visited Emma in her own home she was currently harboring a stunning if slightly distressed chest of draws in her conservatory, which was originally meant for her clients guest room. On a second thought, Emma now tells me “I couldn’t possibly keep such a beautiful chest tucked away from sight, so it’s now being relocated to their master bedroom to be admired and adorned”. I rather think Emma is saddened to see it go from her own home as it blends in beautifully with all of Emma’s wonderful possessions.

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. 66

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.

70

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.

LUXURY LIVING

CLASSIC ENGLISH COUNTRY LIVING, CLOSE TO TOWN Homefield Park, Christchurch

d

Minutes away from Christchurch, Homefield Park is situated in Winkton, one of the most sought after villages in Dorset, on the edge of the New Forest. Set around an acre of village green, in a privately enclosed gated road, is a unique collection of brand new luxury homes from Platinum Skies. These properties exude charm and character – and perfectly combine English style living with a contemporary feel. Now in its final phase, Homefield Park now offers the last of these age exclusive properties to buyers of 55 years and over.

Gracious and spacious living Each of these stunning 2, 3 and 4 bedroom houses has its own distinctive characteristics – large porches, classic front doors and beautiful brickwork, creating a village style setting. The mix of detached, semi-detached, cottage style and original Georgian architecture is like nothing else in the area. Standing magnificently at the front of Homefield Park is the former country residence of Sir Admiral John Walcott, a naval captain who was MP for Christchurch in the 1850s. Beautifully restored, this is now home to four luxury apartments, with high ceilings and Georgian style windows.

96

The jewel in the crown is the one acre of village green, around which these 25 homes are built - some with patio doors opening directly onto this verdant open space, leading to views over parkland beyond.

Every property at Homefield Park has been carefully designed to maximise square footage, with larger than average sized rooms throughout the home – not just restricted to the standardised approach of one master bedroom, and smaller guest rooms. All bedrooms and living areas are generously proportioned - no compromise has been made on any of the room sizes.

Light, bright, spacious interiors Step inside any of these homes and the first thing that you’ll notice is the wide hallways and staircases – and plenty of natural light flooding through these larger than average properties. Italian style fitted kitchens open onto bright living areas. Large picture windows and double patio doors all add to the sense of spaciousness. First floor double bedrooms with en-suites and fitted wardrobes are perfect for luxury living, and homes have been carefully designed for low maintenance and adaptability. On the ground floor, a further bathroom and a study/extra bedroom provide more space, and can be adapted for future downstairs living. The houses have small private walled gardens, summerhouses and two parking spaces. Ideal for downsizers who don’t want to compromise on space, homes have ample storage, fitted cupboards and wardrobes.


LUXURY LIVING

Unique Exchange Pledge service A unique exchange pledge service is available to ensure a smooth, trouble free move. This guarantees a new home - and a move into it, whilst full market value is achieved on any existing home. This end to end moving service takes care of managing estate agents, legalities, all the paperwork, removals and post-sale customer support. Developed by Bournemouth based Platinum Skies, Homefield Park is open from Monday to Saturday each week. Drop in visitors are welcome or private viewings can be arranged. Contact the show home directly on 01202 471461 or by email: homefieldpark@platinumskies.co.uk. www. homefield-Park.co.uk

Underfloor heating adds a touch of luxury – and other features include traditional wooden sliding double doors between dining/drawing rooms for privacy if needed.

Security and low maintenance – ideal for lock up and leave Centred on an acre of village green, with planted walkways and a magnificent Redwood tree, each home is positioned to ensure privacy, without being isolated. Properties are fully secure, and designed for low maintenance, making them ideal for both lock up and leave and independent living. Homefield Park is close to the amenities of Christchurch, local shops, airports and pubs. Ideal for the New Forest, the market town of Ringwood, Mudeford Quay, Hengistbury Head and the sandy beaches at Highcliffe, Southbourne and Bournemouth. Prices range from £650,000 to £350,000. The annual service charge for houses is just £795 per annum.

Homefield Park • Private gated road around acre of village green • Sought after location, 5 minutes from Christchurch • 2, 3 and 4 bedroom age exclusive houses and apartments • Larger than average sized rooms throughout each property • Italian fitted kitchens, double bedrooms with en-suites • 2 private parking spaces per home • Private garden with summerhouse • Low cost, low maintenance • Adaptable for future needs 97


BUSINESS PROFILE

BUSINESS PROFILE House talks with Joe Nisbet from Elite Property Search Ltd

Joe Nisbet Elite Property Search Ltd When was Elite set up, and why? Elite was set up in 2007. We recognised there was a niche in the property market for anyone buying a property. For most buyers, this is probably the most expensive purchase they will ever make and yet they are left to do it on their own. Estate agents sell properties and therefore represent the sellers, Elite Property Search represent the buyers and try and purchase the house for the buyer at the lowest price possible. There is never any conflict of interest, as we are paid by the buyer and estate agents are paid by the seller. Elite specialises in securing high calibre properties for clients. What makes this end of the market so great to be doing business with? Our clients tend to be busy senior executives, professionals and high profile individuals who demand specialist advice and personal service. The top end of the market is often easier to secure deals because you are dealing with proceedable buyers and genuine sellers. What has been your most favourite property you have ever found for your client and why? My favourite property was a beautiful large country house in the Purbecks that we secured for a London couple. They had been looking for 2 years on their own unsuccessfully before they instructed us to find them their next home. The property we found for them was not on the open market and was secured within 2 weeks. The sellers were so impressed with our service that they employed us to find their next home as they were downsizing. To this day, we still keep in touch. How have you seen your business develop since the beginning? Since 2007, we have been encouraged by the growth

98

of our business and are currently aware of more than £450m worth of privately available properties up and down the country. We have built up a large database of buyers over the years and have also gained respect within the industry with reputable estate agents, as they know we have many genuine buyers looking for their next home. How has the rise in house prices affected your business? This has helped us in general because many of our clients have successfully sold their homes with profit, and are now looking to buy a new family home or a second home in the country. What do you predict for the future of the housing market and your business? Property prices tend to take an upward swing after a general election so this can only be good for our business as more houses will be coming on to the market, giving more of a choice for our client, the buyer. Will you be expanding into the north of the UK or abroad? In the past, Elite has found properties throughout the UK. Although more and more we are now specialising locally, due to the increasing demand for homes in the Dorset/New Forest area. Do you have any future goals or objectives for the company? We would like to continue to grow the business and build our reputation locally with buyers and also with sellers who would prefer to sell their home discretely. In comparison to competitors, what do you believe makes Elite so unique ? • Our service is unique in that we will always introduce our clients to properties that are not on the open market.

• We never take on 2 clients with the same search criteria. • We are not tied to any one particular estate agent, so we have no conflict of interest. • 70% of the properties we find for clients are not on the open market. • Nobody goes to the lengths we do to find properties for our clients before they go on the open market. If you could pick your dream location to live where would it be? A home on the Beaulieu River in Hampshire would be my first choice. Failing that, the Purbecks are beautiful and will always be one of my favourite places in the world. Finally, if you could sum up what you do in two words? What are they and why? Secret Agents! - slightly tongue in cheek - but - our clients are always amazed at our ability to track down privately available properties that are not on the open market.

Birthday celebrations as Dorset law firm branches out A highly successful and well respected Dorset law firm is celebrating ten years in business and the expansion of its operation. Simpkins and Co Solicitors, based in Highcliffe has just announced the opening of a London office to cope with growing demand for its services. Principal Solicitor Steve Simpkins believes that the growth has come from having a solid reputation and having detailed knowledge of certain areas of the law. Steve commented “We are a relatively small practice but have some very large and successful cases to our name. We are specialists in the areas of personal injury and clinical negligence litigation, plus employment law and business advice, and feel passionately about offering the best legal help to enable our clients to fight their corner.” Although Dorset based, Simpkins and Co Solicitors works nationwide, but with a lot of cases on the south coast and in the Home Counties, plus increasingly in London, hence its move to the capital. Steve added, “Our new office will be centrally located in Trafalgar Square. This is essentially to enable us to work closely with our London clients or those from the Kent, Essex areas, whilst our HIghcliffe office will continue to serve clients across Hampshire, Dorset and the New Forest. People come to us because of our

Personal Injury

reputation and expertise, and we are very proud of what we have achieved in the first decade of the company.” With the rise of ‘ambulance chasing’ law firms thrusting advertising out across the media, Simpkins and Co Solicitors has retained its integrity and reputation for fairness, and for always working in the best interest of their clients. The majority of those contacting Simpkins and Co do so via recommendation or through associates. Steve commented, “Invariably when people come to us it is at a time of pressure and stress. It could be an employment related issue, either from the employer or the employee perspective; or someone who has sustained life-changing injuries. Whatever the case, we see it as our responsibility to be open and honest about their rights, and chances of winning any damages.” Simpkins and Co Solicitors has also recently been recognised by the Spinal Injuries Association, becoming an accredited Gold Corporate Partner. This means that those sustaining spinal injuries and looking for legal support can approach Simpkins and Co as an accredited law firm. Another area where the company has seen growth is in advising entrepreneurs and start-up businesses. The company has opened its London office largely in response to increased work with Polish business start-ups in particular, offering a wide range of business and legal advice, including UK employment

law. Steve said, “Much is said about immigration, but from our experience there are some incredibly innovative and entrepreneurial companies coming to the UK. We are working with Polish Business Link in London, and now have a Polish translator/new business consultant on board.” Regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) and the Law Society, Simpkins and Co is also accredited by the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL) and the Employment Law Association (ELA). Having grown up in the local area, Steve Simpkins is also a Trustee Board Member for the New Forest Citizens Advice Bureau, taking an active role within the organisation. Summing up Steve went on to say, “The first ten years have flown by, but with some exciting plans afoot we are confident that the next ten years at Simpkins and Co Solicitors will be equally as exciting. Concentrating our work on specific areas of the law means we keep focussed on recent case law and how to help our clients gain the best possible outcomes. It’s tough and challenging but immensely rewarding.”

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

Rate expectations According to a report compiled by The Centre for Economics and Business Research (CEBR), 61% of home-owners say they are unsure and confused as to when exactly interest rates will go up. The report suggests that the reason for this uncertainty is a lack of consistent commentary from politicians, experts and regulators. With so much contradictory information and difference in opinion spread across the media, these figures are understandable and come as no surprise. Many experts have changed tact from suggesting the rate rise would come in early 2015, to advising it could come at some point in 2015. The reason for this is possibly the link the original

prediction had to inflation, predicted to be 2% by the end of 2014, which in reality dropped to 1%. One leading lender has even moved its rate-rise prediction to the first quarter of 2016, blaming a mix of political uncertainty, weak inflation and a slowdown in the economic recovery. CEBR themselves predict that any rise in the interest rate will be gradual, with the Bank of England base rate rising to just 0.75% by November. But Howard Archer, chief European economist at IHS Global Insight, said: “It is entirely possible that the Bank of England will hold fire on interest rates until […] early 2016”. Whatever the prediction, the low interest rate means we are currently seeing some of the best mortgage deals in years, with most customers understandably opting for fixed rate options. The best thing to do is to take advantage of experts that know your personal situation, as they are able to offer the best advice specific to you and your needs. Now more than ever the advice you gain from intermediaries is extremely valuable, with the media only causing more confusion with their wide range of predictions and sources.

TALKING BUSINESS

TALKING BUSINESS House talks business with Aimee Ramage from Burns Estates

Aimee Ramage Burns Estates Branch Manager Aimee has put her business development experience to the test and been the catalyst to driving the rebrand of Burns Estates forward. Aimee has worked alongside estate agents for years at previous companies and gained invaluable experience along the way.

Landlords don’t have to worry about a void period. Securing tenants from university lecturers to employees at some of the town’s top companies including JP Morgan/Chase, Aimee actively works closely with these clients on new opportunities, providing expert advice at every step of the way.

Over the last 2 years Burns have taken on a selection of high specification properties in all areas of Bournemouth & Poole including Canford Cliffs, Alum Chine, Mudeford and Christchurch. Although Burns are hitting the top spots Aimee tells “I’ve felt for some time that our brand doesn’t truly represent the direction the company has been travelling in and we need clients to recognise that the company has evolved”.

As a team at Burns each member sings from the same hymn sheet. Each on the same page and hard working to make sure everything is done properly, it’s important that the client is left feeling happy. Spending longer with colleagues than with partners, friends or family, its notable how imperative that an excellent working relationship is established. In Aimee’s words “it really is the key to a successful business”.

Burns have continued to share a great reputation amongst their clients, and have wonderful long standing Landlords who refer their friends, colleagues, and family. As with any business there is always the need to shout about successes, and for Burns this was to make known that they are letting & selling high specification properties to high calibre clients. This includes corporate lets and executives/ families relocating to the area. Estate Agents have a poor reputation and Aimee sought to do things differently. Her aim is to become the agent of choice in Bournemouth. This may sound like a big statement to make, but Burns have already made a big impact on the market with clients choosing them to sell their properties rather than long standing local agencies who have proven success in the area. As Aimee proudly tells me “we’ve sold properties where other agents have struggled and I believe that it’s down to our proactive marketing approach”. Doing things a little differently means Burns assure their clients are made to feel special. “We are as far removed from the pre-conceived idea of an estate agent as you can get”.

140

group of dedicated property professionals who will work in your best interests to secure tenancies on a long or short-term lease depending on their clients exact requirements. Aimee tells me “I am overjoyed to say that we’ve let some wonderful units in areas including Moordown, Springbourne and in and around Bournemouth. We focus on one thing and one thing only our clients”. Not sitting by the phone waiting for clients to call up and discuss what is happening with the rental of their units, Burns are proactive in calling and informing clients with what they are doing to make it happen. Aimee rightly so tells, “it’s easy for your Agent to play the ‘it’s too expensive it needs a price reduction’ card to avoid the real matter at hand. However if you’ve valued

We will always do our very best to help you, and we are here to assist people from all walks of life.

Earlier this year Aimee was so deservingly awarded a membership from the NAEA (National Association of Estate Agents) which she tells me she was “delighted to accept” and goes hand in hand with her ARLA qualifications (Association of Residential Letting Agents).

a property accurately, then price shouldn’t be an issue”. If the market has changed significantly since their property came onto the market then agents should be advising their clients accordingly, and tell clients about the competition their property is now facing and making necessary changes and suggestions. “Sometimes with our commercial and residential lettings we find an offer to entice clients with a rental free period works well. Everyone likes a deal! With our Sales properties we find ‘Open Days’ are an excellent way to increase urgency amongst buyers and get offers on the table.”

Recently successfully letting a number of commercial units in and around Bournemouth, Burns have identified a gap in the market for a truly exceptional high street commercial agent. A

Now currently working closely with a number of Buy to Let investors who are looking for more investment properties, Burns are careful to market the properties prior to completion to ensure

Upon listening to Aimee and her team it’s easy to see why clients choose to team up with Burns. Honesty and the desire to be the best at what they do, each member brings a skill and uniqueness to the business, which in turn is appreciated. The service they offer is not just different to other agents, “it’s better” says Aimee. “We will always do our very best to help you, and we are here to assist people from all walks of life. We won’t judge you; we will try and help you. Whether you’re a single professional, couple, family or single person in receipt of benefits – we will do our utmost to find you a suitable property. We will do viewings to suit your busy schedules and unlike other Agencies we won’t tell you we close at 5pm and basically ‘tough luck’ if you’d like to view after this time. It’s all about your clients, showing how much you care and that you’re happy to accommodate their needs. Some days I’m at an early breakfast meeting which starts at 7am then on my way into the office I pop and see a potential client to go through paperwork or answer any queries they may have. I’ll always put myself out for my clients”. Other agents in the past may have underestimated and dismissed Burns as perhaps the “student agent”, but they are now quickly paying attention. Now being instructed to market properties instead of established estate agencies that have successfully sold properties in key areas for years, this is a testament to Burns and how they do business. Successfully letting and selling properties in more areas is a direct result of Burns re-brand that Aimee tells me “has increased our property portfolio massively in a relatively short space of time”. Changing the name from Burns Lettings to Burns Estates is a result of incorporating the sales side of Burns business. Reflecting how the company

◆ RESIDENTIAL ◆ COMMERCIAL ◆ SALES ◆ LETTINGS ◆ PROPERTY MANAGEMENT ◆ BLOCK MANAGEMENT ◆


TALKING BUSINESS

has evolved, it makes clients aware that Burns are a multi-functional agency, which includes both residential and commercial sales, lettings & property management, all with a personal touch. Specific regarding requirements and how the team wished the rebrand to look, specialist agency Intergage was sought. Aimee has worked closely with the wonderful designers and account manager to ensure everything looks perfect. Colour was an integral part and much deliberation was considered before settling on gold and purple. The team excitedly tell me “we wanted something that looked classic, stylish and professional, to reflect the brand and the company”. Working on the website was an initial start in carrying out the rebrand process. It was felt the site was perhaps a little dated and not a true reflection of the quality of service that Burns offer. Since it was vital to let clients know how dedicated to professionalism and incredible the Burns team are, the website at present was not fulfilling this brief. Working alongside RDT systems on the re-design Aimee has been thrilled with the results stating “Jason is a genius and has listened to all our requirements at every step of the way”. If you’re reading this Jason, you should be grinning. Keeping hold of the reigns Burns have been fully involved in the design process. “We wanted a site that was sleek, informative yet not a minefield of information about us waffling on about us”. Showing the public what Burns are about, the site looks amazing and gives clients an excellent insight into their approach to business and how they can be of help. “It’s not about us, it’s about YOU”. With the rebrand complete, how do Burns measure the success? Not just about figures, Aimee details, “it’s about clients perceptions and them spreading the word about how amazing we are”. Burns have a number of schemes in place including ‘Refer a Friend’, ‘Price Promise’ & ‘Switch to Burns’. Looking at why clients come to Burns, getting to know them, and understanding what they need is an integral part of their business. As Aimee says “It’s important to identify why someone has called us and invited us to value their

property. Or simply called us for professional advice. Have they called as they’ve seen our wonderful boards? Or did they read one of my ‘ask the expert’ columns in House?” It is important to know why you have been selected, and Burns are never afraid of asking questions. Getting to know clients and what they want and expect is how your business will move forward. So switching to Burns, why should you do so? When was the last time you decided to make a change in your life, no matter how insignificant? You’ll change your hairdresser because of a bad hairdo, or your favourite takeaway because of a bad meal, but when was the last time you thought about your current managing agent for your house or block of apartments?

We wanted something that looked classic, stylish and professional, to reflect the brand and the company. As Aimee explains, “with the bigger things in life such as your bank, most people tolerate poor service as they don’t think there’s a better alternative. If you’ve been with your bank since the age of 18 then why would you switch? I made the decision to switch and my new bank rewarded me for transferring my business. It made me think about how many unhappy Landlords come to me on a weekly basis with horror stories of their existing agent. Lists of issues as long as their arms, you name it, we’ve heard it. All in all Landlords are not getting the service they’re paying for. We reward them by providing them with an exceptional management service – however we appreciate that in life everyone deserves a reward and this is why ‘Switch to Burns’ has been launched”. By switching to Burns, they will manage your property for free for the first 3 months*. With the launch of ‘Burns Estates’ they are

even offering new and existing clients offers of their lettings and sales service. Moving into the future where are Burns hoping to improve and nurture upon? There is always room for improvement. At any given company who tells they are perfect, they need to slip off their rose tinted glasses. The property industry is one that continues to evolve and to survive adaptation is necessary. Aimee tells me “if you have a massive database of clients looking for a certain property type, then get off your chair and go and out and knock on some doors to get business. Good things come to those who wait on a long term basis, but if you put in the work now then you will reap the rewards sooner.” Burns has diversified into new and exciting areas including Sales & Commercial. These divisions will continue to grow over the coming months and hopefully Burns expect to see more and more clients choosing Burns as their first option when looking to rent and sell their property. Burns know that clients like continuity with staff, and are thrilled to say they have a wonderful team. It’s important to Burns that their clients know they care about quality. Whether it’s quality of service or calibre of tenant it’s important. Credentials are checked when letting, and everyone who enquires is thoroughly vetted from the outset to avoid getting into a situation where tenants request properties which are not suitable, or when clients wish to make an offer, but their mortgage isn’t agreed in principle. As an agent Burns will always work with clients best interest endeavouring to provide a service that is second to none.

DIARY OF A LETTING AGENT Sharon Canning Move on Rentals

AMNESTY FOR LANDLORDS ON PROTECTING DEPOSITS! So….. who are you? Who has been hiding their head in the sand and hoping they won’t get found out for NOT protecting their tenants’ deposit. It could be you have a tenant who has been in the property for many years and perhaps you have never had to use an agent, who would have highlighted the new regulations regarding protecting a tenants deposit that came in to force in April 2007. It could be that you took the deposit before the ruling in 2007 and you genuinely believed (as many did) that you did not have to protect the deposit. It doesn’t really matter what your reasons are, the good news is you have been pardoned! On the condition you protect the deposit before 23rd June 2015. The Government is running a 90 day amnesty for buy to let investors who have yet to put their tenants’ deposits into an official scheme. The government believe there are 1 in 3 of us out of the 1.5 million private landlords in England and Wales who are not registered with a scheme. This only applies to tenancies that come under the ‘assured Shorthold tenancy’. The landlords probably most at risk are the ones with rolling contracts who have been tenants for several years. Word of warning, do not be fooled into thinking you have a good relationship with your tenant and they would not do anything to put you in a difficult position, because life can throw up anomalies and change people’s views and attitude. If you do not protect the deposit the tenant will be entitled to 3 times the deposit they gave plus their deposit, the government could also put a hefty penalty on top. Money aside, landlords who fail to register will be powerless if they want a tenant to leave at the end of their contract. So, if your tenant loses their job and they then get into rent arrears, you will be seen to be a landlord who has failed in your obligations and will lose the control of getting your property back.

PROTECT YOUR DEPOSIT NOW!!! NO EXCUSES! If you would like any advice on this and to clarify if you need to protect a deposit then please do not hesitate to contact me for a confidential chat. 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!

If you would like a friendly, no obligation chat regarding any property matter, then please Email sharon@moveonrentals.com or telephone 01202 711169.

OUTDOOR LIVING

UP THE CHERRIES! Congratulations to AFC Bournemouth for securing for the first time ever, Promotion to the Premier League. Show your support for our local top flight club by investing in a Limited edition “Cherries” themed 1.5m Picnic Table!

ENJOY THE OUTDOORS Spring has sprung and before you know it summer will be here, therefore it’s time make sure you are making the most of your outdoor space! Reformed Plastics offer a wide range of furniture to help you to make the most of your outdoor space. Due to the ever-increasing importance to recycle & protect the environment, our products are made from 100% recycled plastic. All the plastic used is recycled in the UK and is a perfect alternative to wood. Our aim is to help rebuild the environment by utilising a commodity, which people would otherwise just throw away, and so turn what to some would be rubbish into a valuable product for everybody.

158

The benefits of Reformed Plastics products: • It is UK designed and built • Bespoke design solutions • Safe and secure • No splintering • Maintenance free • Easy to clean • A range of colours and textures • Will not need painting or staining • Will never rot • Strong, durable and wear resistant • Sustainable sturdy alternative to traditional material. • Non-slip decking • Lasts for over 50 years • Resistant to vandalism • Resistant to salt water

• Resistant to chemicals • Resistant to insects and bacteria

Why Are Our Products Different? Plastic lumber is the perfect alternative to anything that has ever needed maintaining. It can be cut with a regular saw, drilled, nailed or screwed into and routed as easily as wood, but can also be cleaned with anything from only a damp cloth to a pressure washer if you wish, without causing any harm.

What Can The Plastic Be Used For ? The manufactured plastic has many practical and very useful properties. The main base of our products are in the form of planks and posts which can be used on their own for garden fences, both low for front gardens and high for side and back fences for instance, along road sides and around fields and paddocks just to name a few. It is also possible to produce a number of other products out of our plastic, such as picnic tables. These would vary in size, suitable for adults and children. Park benches, outdoor tables, square or rectangular plant boxes, decking and seating...the list is endless.

Financial Benefits Achieving value for money is a key driver for any purchasing decision. Although some recycled products have greater up-front cost, their longevity and durability make them a more costeffective option over the long term.

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.

MOTORING

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

ROAD TEST: PEUGEOT 308 GT LINE HONDA ‘MOST RELIABLE’

164

Honda has retained its status as the most reliable used car manufacturer in the UK for the ninth consecutive year, according to research by What Car? and Warranty Direct. The Japanese manufacturer topped the annual survey of 37 manufacturers, which analyses 50,000 live Warranty Direct policies on three to eight-year old vehicles. Once again, Japanese and South Korean manufacturers dominated the annual study of the most reliable brands, with Suzuki and Toyota claiming second and third place. Encouragingly for other manufacturers however, Chevrolet, Ford, Skoda, Peugeot and Fiat also fought their way into the top 10. At the opposite end of the scale, luxury and prestige marques Bentley and Porsche are the most likely to break down. What Car? editor Jim Holder said: “Honda’s success in the reliability index is chiefly down to low failure rates. However, when things do go wrong, the cars are also relatively cheap to fix. “Reliability is always one of the key attributes buyers look for when considering a used car purchase, so manufacturers that consistently demonstrate durability will always do well with the consumer.” Overall, the most reliable models are the Honda Jazz and Mitsubishi Lancer, both of which also carry reasonable average repair costs. The least reliable model, the Audi RS6, is also the most costly to fix, with an average repair bill of £1003.25.

Peugeot’s 308 is available in 18 different versions priced from £14,995 and among the latest is its GT Line variant, a sporty-looking model with warm rather than hothatch performance, and exceptionally well equipped, writes NICK FLETCHER. Standard features include 18-inch alloy wheels, black laquered rear diffuser, twin exhausts, leather upholstery, and discreet GT Line badging. Other kit includes front, side and curtain airbags, four powered windows, climate control, sat-nav, Bluetooth and a 9.7 inch touch screen. The GT Line spec is available on many 308 models, and my recent test car (£21,445) featured Peugeot’s outstanding 1.2 litre turbo-petrol engine which despite is small size offers 130 hp. While the 0-60 mph time of 10.3 seconds and top speed 125 mph is is nippy rather than searing performance, the bonus is the fuel economy - 58.9 mpg combined.

Out on the road, this 308 is very engaging, feeling light and nimble and quicker than the on-paper figures suggest. The steering is responsive, the gearshift slick, and the handling sharp, tight and assured. Ride quality is very good unless you are on a rough surface, when the big alloys noticeably transmit the bumps. The cabin is well designed, with most of the main controls via the big central touchscreen. There is adequate space for the rear seat passengers though the all-black trim and letterbox-style rear screen do create coal-bunker ambience! Boot space is excellent - deep and wide. The 308 GT Line is up against tough opposition – the VW Golf and Audi A3 for instance – but this attractive French contender does have a lot to offer, especially its high level of standard features and charismatic styling.

DACIA NEW MODEL Dacia has announced plans to enter the UK light commercial vehicle market this summer with a commercial version of the Duster SUV – Duster Commercial. Prices start at £9,595 excluding VAT, and orders can be placed now for delivery in late June. Thanks to a false floor with load protection, Duster Commercial has a load capacity of 1,150 litres (4x2) or 1,000 litres (4x4), a payload of 550 kg and a flat cargo deck almost 1.4 metres long and more than a metre width between the wheel arches. “The new models are expected to appeal strongly to local and regional businesses as a mobile toolbox, while their low price will be especially attractive to charities,” says Dacia. The Duster Commercial is available solely with a 1.5-litre, 107 hp dCi 110 diesel engine, but offer buyers the choice of Ambiance or Lauréate equipment packages, each with the option of two- or four-wheel drive. Because the Duster Commercial is classed as a van, owners can reclaim the VAT on the purchase price, and they attract flat-rate benefit-in-kind taxation for users. Standard equipment on all models includes roof bars, a chrome grille, chrome interior highlights, a toughened plastic floor with two anchorage points, electric front windows, a height-adjustable steering wheel and driver’s seat, luggage area lighting, a four-speaker radio/

CD player with MP3 compatibility, Bluetooth, AUX and USB sockets, ABS with Emergency Brake Assist, Electronic Stability Control and Traction Control and four airbags. Lauréate versions add alloy wheels; satin chrome roof bars, side sills and scuff plates; piano black interior detailing; black door sill protectors; a seven-function trip computer; heated and electrically adjustable door mirrors; cruise control with a speed limiter; and air conditioning. All-wheel-drive versions have a centre differential lock with selectable 2WD, AUTO and LOCK modes.

HEALTH & BEAUTY

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

SKIN SOLUTIONS Did you know that we lose about 1% of collagen a year, and the ability to repair the skin becomes more difficult as we age? In fact, our skin changes every 3 months without us even noticing! Think of it like this; when we’re young we resemble a hydrated plumped juicy grape and if we don’t look after our skin (and ourselves) we slowly in time become to resemble a dry dehydrated raisin. It’s not a good look. So what’s the secret to younger youthful looking skin? Well that’s easy, it’s YOU! It’s making the time to make that important appointment to go see your trusted beauty therapist for treatment and advice. As a general rule from the age of 35 laughter lines and frown lines are often already apparent our skin texture has become uneven and furrows are starting to form. From the age of 40-50 the issue changes and now it’s time to fight the effects of hormonal changes (dry skin, then sagging skin, biology ageing) from the age of 60 sagging increases, skin loses its suppleness and glow, making wrinkles much more apparent.

Choosing the right Facial for you……

The Perfector Non-Surgical Facial Microcurrent lifting has been used for the past 20 years in medical treatments. As a non-surgical lift, microcurrent stimulation and lymph drainage in the dermis increases the efficiency of nutrient absorption and at the same time speeds up the elimination of waste impurities which clog and congest the cells. A micro current facial such as Perfector will re-educate the muscles resulting in a smoother, toned appearance. The number of treatments depends on skin condition, age and lifestyle but as a general rule a coursed of 12 is recommended. £40 per session.

The Oxygen Facial Facials with Oxygen help nourish and rejuvenate dull skin. Also as we age, oxygen does not reach our skin cells as efficiently, which is what leads to the aging process. The result can be thinner skin

and the appearance of wrinkles and age spots. An oxygen facial will replenish the amount of oxygen that the skin receives, leaving it hydrated, plumper and younger looking. So basically an Oxygen facial treatment will purify, detoxify, stimulate circulation, improve circulation, heal the skin, prevent skin damage, revitalize the skin and soften lines and wrinkles. The Chic Oxygen Facial £38 Unsure of which Facial to choose? Have you never had a Facial before? Which Skincare products are right for you? If your feeling confused then I have the perfect solution for you!

The Chic 30:30:30. This is a 30 minute Dermalogica Facial with a 30 day supply of Dermalogica Skincare products to take home all for £30! This deal is available now whilst stocks last at Chic. Book early to avoid disappointment as this is always a super popular deal!

PDO THREAD LIFTS Amazing Non Surgical Face Lift BEFORE

A brief history of nail extensions Whilst nail extensions may seem like a fairly modern development, women have been attempting to add artificial length to their talons since the Ancient Egyptian times. During this period, long nails were considered to be a sign of wealth and status in both Egypt and various other cultures (notably Asian cultures), and extensions were crafted out of materials that were only available to the rich such as ivory, bone and gold. Since then, artificial nails have evolved considerably – with nail extensions as we know them today first being invented bizarrely by a dentist – Fred Slack in 1954. Today, there are multiple nail extension and overlay techniques and services available for those who wish to enhance the appearance and strength of their natural nails – though all are still based upon Fred Slacks original concept.

What are individual eyelash extensions? Eyelash extensions are one of the fastest growing beauty treatments both in the UK and internationally. By having eyelash extensions you can enhance your natural lashes by adhering a synthetic individual eyelash to each natural eyelash, removing the need to wear mascara. Great for holidays, special events like weddings or for everyday use. Eyelash Extensions are light, comfortable, natural and available in various curls, lengths and thicknesses. To keep your lashes at their very best, we recommend infill maintenance every 2-3 weeks. With expert application by a fully trained technician and by avoiding the use of oilbased eye products, these eyelash extensions behave just like natural lashes and achieve a thicker, fuller and more flattering look. Book your appointment today and take advantage of our offer!

REVIEWED

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

THE CRUEL SEA BAR By Lucy Kedge Bank Chambers, Penn Hill Avenue, Poole, BH14 9NB Open for lunch Tuesday–Sunday 12pm–3pm and dinner 6pm–Late ‘Getting fishy with it’, I couldn’t resist using that line having spent the afternoon at The Cruel Sea Bar in Penn Hill. Delicate sublime fish served up tapas style accompanied with a tipple of your choice. Even those who are adverse to fish can be converted. Pale blue twinkling lights hang overhead like diamonds in the sky, creating this rather cosy meets contemporary setting. A beautiful original brick wall spanning the length of the restaurant bares ‘The Cruel Sea’ marque inscribed in white chalk. Sitting down to a glass of Prosecco, just enjoying the serene ambiance, ‘The Cruel Sea’ feels ‘cool’. Relaxed and at peace with my surroundings I felt as thought this whimsical bar had put some sort of Zen spell over me. Decked with the choice of informal tables and pastel chairs or high rise wooden bar tables clustered with leather stools ‘The Cruel Sea’ can accommodate depending your mood. An open plan kitchen pans out into the restaurant for all to enjoy, making the relationship between chef and diner rather special. Charismatic and full of charm the staff are a reflection of the restaurant, happy to greet loyal customers and share their stories behind today’s local catch. It was rather lovely to hear about a regular customer named Michael who makes the journey each week via bus from Swanage to ‘The Cruel Sea’ to bask in the company of staff and enjoy the freshly caught Dorset oysters. Joined by the hip to sister restaurant ‘Storm’ owner Pete serves up fresh fish the way he likes it. Simple with few ingredients, allowing the fish to speak for itself, singing on the plate. Each morning Pete delivers the fish, caught a few hours prior to light, allowing the chefs to play ready steady cook with the days offerings. Keeping things dynamic makes

168

the dinning experience unique to each customer depending on what is fresh on the menu that day. When I headed out back to meet Pete his passion for fish was infectious considering fish were being thrown from box to chopping board. Taking flying fish to a whole new level the dedication to produce and deliver the finest of its kind was apparent. Explaining how Sea bass and Plaice remain by the local reefs during the summer, at their freshest these would certainly make a delicious choice for those warmer months. Supplying restaurants across the UK I’d say Pete is your go to man if your looking for the best. On today’s lunch menu first up was squid dancing in chilli oil. Perfectly cooked, as squid can often in my opinion be overdone and become a little tough and rubbery, the heat starts off mild and slowly creeps up on you leaving a trail of warmth at the back of your throat. Baba ganoush (the best way I can explain this is the aubergine version of hummus) accompanied by griddled ciabatta was an unusual touch, not often found, and all the more better for it. Exclusive and memorable. Garlic king prawns (shell off) were welcomed with very happy faces, not surprisingly a favourite of the restaurants, Manager Nicki informs me that this particular dish remains a constant. On the veggie side of things a delicious pairing of sweet potato and almonds, tender stem broccoli crumbled with feta cheese and baby new potatoes glistening with a little butter and parsley. The head turner of the meal had to go to the monkfish. A delicate meaty fish lightly dressed with red and green peppers it was beautiful. For Gary, who rather prefers meat to fish, skeptical of visiting a fish restaurant the monkfish converted him. His words ‘that is delicious’ left the rest of us amazed.

For the finale a whole mackerel that rather gracefully flakes off the bone and the piece de resistance oysters. A few of us had the pleasure, or not so pleasurable experience of delighting in a raw oyster prior to our trip to “The Cruel Sea”. The verdict was that we would prefer not to try. Pivo the head chef for the afternoon however very sweetly took it upon himself to try and convince us otherwise. Cooking the oysters in spinach and parsley butter sauce dressed back in their beautiful coats of silver and slate grey tones, we each braved them to our mouth. On the count of three swallowing whole it was expected that a few of us would pull a rather sour face, but instead we were each delighted. Perhaps enhancing the flavour of the oyster with the sauce it was most enjoyable. Pivo if you are reading this, you have turned not one but six negative opinions of oysters to positive ones. So laid back, practically horizontal, we couldn’t resist the temptation to prolong our stay with sweet treats. The lightest of cheesecakes with hints of ginger and lemon was divine. I enjoy cheesecake, but I wouldn’t say I go mad for it, however this was the top dog of cheesecakes. Not falling too short behind was an apple crumble accompanied by crème anglaise hot, sticky and sweet all that a crumble should be. A chocolate option is necessary and ‘The Cruel Sea’ did not disappoint with bite size brownie chunks served with a little raspberry coulis on the side, to mop up the last crumbs, delicious. Whether your visiting on a Saturday (9am – 12pm) to buy some fresh fish for the week, ‘The Cruel Sea’ is your local Saturday fishmongers too, or your stopping by for a little lunch, this fish bar is bound to impress even the likes of Captain Birdseye. Aye Aye Captain!

REVIEWED

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

THE LIME WOOD HOTEL Beaulieu Road, Lyndhurst, Hampshire SO43 7FZ Like Cinderella’s foot to slipper, the Lime Wood was the perfect match for me. Spinning around in my ball gown across the lawn as the fairy godmother repeats her charm ‘the Lime Wood will be your favourite’, I am hooked. The Lime Wood is my absolute most favourite review yet and I am dizzy with admiration. A fusion of eloquence and charm, the cherry on the top was just how much fun I had. Fun being the operative word, I sat with my face astute to the sun laughing as the staff bewitched me with their wit. The grandeur of the Lime Wood cannot be mistaken with its stately home appearance, lime washed walls and pillars. I often find that such places can be a little stuffy and the staff can come across as a little on edge, the whole stiff upper lip and all that jazz. On the contrary the Lime Wood does not conform to such stereotypes and corny as it sounds is a breath of fresh air. The main bar sits at the heart of the building with a stunning skylight roof. Floods of sunshine streaming through an almost cloudless sky flecking their nutrient upon the lush greenery that’s potted in the roof. Like a garden within a home the result is somewhat beautiful. Peaceful, but at least for myself, not so peaceful the silence is uncomfortable, the hotel feels alive. Taking a seat near the bar the staff are most informed, trailing the heritage of particular spirits of the tip of their tongue. It’s easy to spot passion a mile away. When I question a particular cocktail called the Martique I was bemused by its main liquor Lanique. So let me tell you, it’s a rose flavoured liquor, which I thought you might like to know is 40% proof. Naturally I picked it. Intrigued by its hints of lavender, and don’t you find once your bar tender has reeled of its high notes of sweet yet perfectly balanced leaving a clean pallet, your so mesmerized by their words its often hard to say no. Frankly he was right. It was delicious. Refreshing and just a little sweet there is probably not much more I look for in a cocktail. Now suitably doused with alcohol, I know what their game is, we headed to Hartnett Holder & Co. On such a sunny day the patio doors were sprung

wide open, an invitation to dine alfresco that I couldn’t possibly resist. The grounds in which the Lime Wood nests are captivating. Sitting outside, on what felt like the hottest day of the year, finally slipping off my jacket I contemplated not return to work. Two long ponds of water spurting what now looked like rainbows in the sun, amongst a backdrop of lush green and a pergola ready and waiting for its bride to be, really rather pretty. The scene is set and rather cute hare sculptures prancing across the lawn are casting their eyes upon the delights heading towards our table. First mouthwateringly good arancini, perfectly crisp sphere’s concealing their secret until broken. Either wild mushroom or garlic and spinach, I must say they were equally as delicious. Whilst browsing the menu it didn’t really dawn on me too much just how many of these aruncini I was taking to my lips until I paused to find myself feeling a bit full. My advice, take your time and be treat wise, you don’t want to spoil your meal. When ordering I at first declined a starter, too many aruncini balls, but I was swindled out of my decision with little effort required. The Lime Wood have their own smokehouse within the grounds producing smoked salmon, pancetta, bresaola, lavender cured loin of pork and all sorts of other tasty treats for you to indulge upon. Ordering the smoke house board to share, elegantly dressed upon a wooden board, there is really not much more to say other than to try as the ingredients speak for themselves. For main course I opted for the scallop and plaice. The plate was sheer artistry. Visually stunning I think many other diners looked on in slight jealousy. At least I like to think so. Plated with precision and a flourish of castelfranco, a lettuce leaf that is described to have a tangy sweet flavor with a slight bitter accent, it complimented the delicate flavours of the sea wonderfully. Put simply it was like a match made in heaven marrying in my mouth. Also picked was the spiced lamb. Unbeknown to the diner making this dish a bit of a surprise, the lamb is stuffed. As you break through the tender meat you will find the spicing start to tantalise

your tongue. Stood astute in the center of the dish surrounded by a lake of creamy green orzo from the pardon peppers it looked rather regal. I am literally salivating as I write, If only I could rewind. Lime Wood please may I move in? Sipping from my gigantic glass of white wine I took to the dessert menu. I say gigantic glass because, well, they really are enormous. Traditionally when drinking white wine you are short listed to a small glass in comparison to that of red. At the Lime Wood there is no mines bigger than yours. The wine list is a show in itself with forty-one pages filled with wines from across the globe. Quite spectacular. Phew the Lime Wood has a lovely sommelier on hand to inform and help you pick a great match. A few desserts really caught my eye but in particular I liked the look of the lemon or raspberry tart. Still unsure when it came to ordering I sort advice. I picked the raspberry. Upon arrival of our desserts, also the salted caramel tart, I spied not two desserts but three. Our very sweet waiter Alex said “I told the chef you couldn’t quite make up your mind so I suggested the raspberry, but he told me if she was indecisive then she must have both”. Doing a dance with my feet under the table I must seem like a spoilt brat, what a princess. Never mind though I thought with the biggest grin on my face, just get me my tiara. Enchanting, magical, scrumptious, alluring, every fabulous word you could possibly use to say it was more than nice sums up this sensational trio. To the chef who graced this dessert with their talent you have made me the happiest girl in the world. The raspberry is sweet v sour and unlike the other tarts velvet like as its cascades in ribbons once its shell is broken. Salted caramel seems to be trending in the city of desserts and the Lime Wood certainly know how to rival competition. The star of the show for me was the salted oat ice cream. Absolutely beautiful, this is emergency happiness. Never a blue day shall follow, not that there should ever be many. Continuing on my tart trip the lemon was harmonious, blending acidity with creamy then zingy before being topped with crunchy. I am running out of adjectives, just faultless. A mouthful of a review I’ve sent myself a bit heady reminiscing. I hope I’ve made you jealous enough to feel the need to try for yourself because I wish you could have been there with me. Captivating the magic of Lime Wood on paper suddenly feels tricky, but I hope I have given you a glimmer, because in reality, it’s so much more. By Lucy Kedge

TALKING BUSINESS

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

Marsham Court Hotel Since taking over the Marsham Court Hotel in 1987, Rosie Wallace and her family have built upon its reputation for great service and carried out extensive refurbishment of its rooms and conferencing facilities. The hospitality industry in Bournemouth is diverse and competitive but the Marsham Court is one of very few hotels that can boast modern facilities and a traditional family welcome. All 87 bedrooms and public areas have a fresh and modern style. While some of the function suites have retained a more traditional style to suit its guests’ varying tastes.

Committed to the future growth of the local hospitality industry, Marsham Court Hotel Director Rosie Wallace works with local schools to encourage young people into the sector. She also welcomes work experience placements to the hotel and has seen several interns rise through her business’s management ranks.

The happiness of its guests is paramount at the Marsham Court Hotel and whether its staff are providing a small meeting room with light refreshments for local businesses, or hosting a large, fully catered, residential conference for national companies or groups, the Marsham Court delivers a quality experience every time.

This commitment also to extends to supporting new local businesses and trainees and has led to the setting up of ‘New 2 Business Networking’. Started in January this year as an informal event, a limit on numbers ensures people converse easily and at each event there is a presentation from a local business owner on how to grow a successful business. It has been a huge success. The next New 2 Business Networking’ event will be on May 13 from 5pm to 7pm and you can register easily on Eventbrite.

Business Development Manager Jane Swift said: “Our larger clients like the fact they can book the entire hotel and utilize the space over several days for in-house training, seminars, and team building, enabling them to really make the most of their investment with everyone under one roof. We also have many local business clients and groups who return to us year after year, knowing we will always go above and beyond what they require.”

172

The South Coast has been identified as the fastest growing digital economy in the UK, surpassing even London. Home to blue-chip companies and a growing business economy, the Marsham Court Hotel has also set its sights wider, attracting guests from progressively further afield. While traditionally 90% of Marsham’s business clients were from within a 30 mile radius of Bournemouth, bookings from outside of the area have risen to 20% in the last two years, with increasing numbers of national businesses attracted by Bournemouth’s coastal location and excellent road, rail and air links.

Asked what attracts such a diverse range of business clients to the hotel, Jane Swift said: “I think it’s a combination of location and our staff. Sitting atop the cliff top overlooking the sea it’s not hard to see why people love coming here. And as a family owned hotel, many of our staff have remained loyal to us for many years - our Meeting and Events Co-ordinator for example has been here for over 10 years, as have half of our Duty Managers. Clients tell us they like the fact they can deal with the same person each time they visit and can sit back confident that their events will run like clockwork.” Marsham Court Hotel, 3 Russell-Cotes Road, East Cliff, Bournemouth, Dorset BH1 3AB T. 01202 552111 E. reservations@marshamcourthotel.co.uk W. www.marshamcourthotel.co.uk

THE CUMBERLAND 27 East Overcliff Drive Bournemouth Dorset Sat along the cliff side with views across the ocean and Bournemouth beach, The Cumberland Hotel offers a breath taking setting to enjoy a spot of lunch. On a blustery Sunday we took to The Cumberland’s AA Rosette Awarded Ventana Brasserie to taster some favorites for lunch.

topped with apple chutney and wedges of soda bread. My partner and I thought it was Amazing. The chef’s recommendation for starter is the hand made salmon fishcakes drizzled in a sorrel sauce with tossed baby spinach and sautéed potatoes. Relatively light, it’s the perfect start to the meal.

To begin with some nibbles of Greek Kalamanta and Italian Vinci Olives with sun blushed tomatoes accompanied with warm rustic bread. Starters quickly followed comprising of English baked Brie

On to the mains and a carefully pan fried tuna steak cooked to perfection. With a side of julienne fries, only a dipping sauce of your choice was needed to devour the rest of this dish. For lamb lovers double

baked Sherborne lamb shank Steeped in a rich gravy, tender, melting of the bone, mmmnn. If you have room for dessert, well you better make some room as it’s a Sunday.

A brilliant selection of events happening across Dorset & Hampshire over the coming weeks..

20TH – 23RD AUGUST BOURNEMOUTH INTERNATIONAL AIR FESTIVAL AT COTTONWOOD BOUTIQUE AND OCEAN VIEW HOTELS

Arnold Ridley’s classic comedy thriller, The Ghost Train opens a three-night run at Lighthouse, Poole’s centre for the arts on Thursday 7 May. The story follows a group of travellers (including a newlywed couple, an estranged couple, a self-indulgent young dandy and an elderly spinster with a parrot) stranded in the waiting room of an isolated railway station on a dark and stormy night, reacting with various degrees of credulity to the station master’s warning of death to anyone who sets eyes on the ghostly train that haunts the line. Ridley’s inspiration came after becoming stranded overnight at Mangotsfield station in Bristol, now a disused station on the Midland Railway main line. The production stars Jeffrey Holland (Hi-de-Hi!, You Rang, M’Lord?, Oh, Doctor Beeching!), Tom Butcher (The Bill, Doctors), Sophie Powles (Emmerdale), Judy Buxton (General Hospital, On the Up) and David Janson (Get Some In!, ‘Allo ‘Allo!, Keeping Up Appearances).
