THE COURTYARD

HAZELHURST

Land & Plot Finder are pleased to confirm that the last unit at The Courtyard has now been Sold.

Land & Plot Finder have reported that a sale has now been agreed on Hazelhurst. This substantial traditionally designed property stands on a mature plot at Colehill, Wimborne. The Developer added a modern twist to the traditional design by introducing modern materials and finishing the internal accommodation in a contemporary style.

This popular development of contemporary, one bedroom houses was set within a secure courtyard close to local facilities and beaches in Boscombe. Land Director Kevin Perris reported a record number of enquiries for the houses with prices starting at £169,950. Land & Plot finder originally identified the potential of the site and were involved at all stages of the planning and construction process. Kevin commented that the site demonstrates the value of oversized and under used garden land for redevelopment. With Government demanding that more affordable homes be constructed to keep up with demand, brown field sites such as these will make a valuable contribution.

Land & Plot Finder were instrumental in identifying the plot for the builder and advising them at all stages of the design process. This beautiful home was built on an oversized garden which could no longer be maintained by the elderly owners of the original house. New Homes Director Andrew Hampton commented that Hazelhurst is a prime example of how sensible planning can deliver badly needed homes. He added that with ever increasing demand the recycling of brown field sites such as this will make a valuable contribution to housing delivery in the area.

If you think that your property offers potential for redevelopment call Land & Plot Finder to arrange a free no obligation consultation. 0843 178 1288

CLLR CHRIS MAYNE OPENS LOCAL BOURNEMOUTH BASED COMPANY ST BARTS FINANCE’S NEW OFFICES IN CHARMINSTER

Alison Humphrey, who heads up the new service, said “This is an exciting new venture which has been very well received.”

LUXURY FURNITURE COMPANY LIVING ELEGANCE TO SHOWCASE NEW CAPSULE RANGE FROM TINY BIRD TEXTILES

CORAL INTERIORS – ADDING VALUE TO YOUR HOME

Here’s an effortless way to find the perfect colour cushion to complement your interior colour scheme. Living Elegance, the luxury furniture retailer and Poole based Tiny Bird Textiles have launched a service which will allow customers to order their own bespoke colour palette from the cushions designs on display.

Yet it’s almost impossible to view our own homes with fresh eyes or impartiality, in fact, the longer we live somewhere the less likely we are to notice the minor cosmetic problems that may well put buyers off.

Ailsa Wilson of Tiny Bird Textiles recently collaborated with Richard Rosselli at Living Elegance to develop a capsule range of soft-furnishings. The range, which currently includes cushions and dining table linens are all on display in their showroom on Wimborne Road, Poole. The contemporary designs feature natural motifs of leaves and trees and colours were carefully selected to work with specific pieces of furniture in the showroom setting. A special bespoke service is also now available that will allow customers the opportunity to work with Ailsa to develop a personalized version of her textiles, selecting colours specifically to fit with the customers existing or new interior colour scheme. Ailsa said about the service “It’s the perfect way to use a favourite colour from a much loved painting or vase, creating a real sense of a well considered, elegant interior, without spending hours hunting the high street and internet. And you end up with a cushion that is unique to you and your interior.”

We all know that first impressions are everything when it comes to selling a property.

The more buyers who fall in love with your home, the more likely you are to meet or even exceed your asking price, and achieve a quick sale. Home Staging is the answer, and with costs that are easily recouped (and certainly much better for the bank balance when compared to the cost of accepting a low offer!) provides a simple solution to achieving a hassle-free sale.

A professional home stager will create that elusive wow factor, putting you streets ahead of any competition. Remember the best time to stage is before you go on the market so talk to us first – because you only get one chance to make a first impression! Call Helen at Coral Interiors on 01202 798837 or 07784 469334 to find out more, or to book your Home Review. Helen Winter, Interior Design and Home Staging expert. www.coralinteriors.co.uk

SIGN-UP FOR THE NEW ELITE BLACK PRIVILEGE CARD Read our interview with the founders of Elite Black on page 166

More details on how the service works are available directly from Living Elegance or Tiny Bird Textiles.

Many homeowners wish they had more space in their home, but if you’re not in the position to consider a full extension, then maybe installing a conservatory is the answer. With modern conservatories now being built utilising the best insulation and double, or even triple, glazing they really have become an allyear-round room. With such a vast range of styles now available, and even the option to design fully bespoke conservatories, there really is no limit to what your new space can be used for. We’ve seen conservatories used to extend kitchens and provide alternative dining spaces. As children’s playrooms, utilising the benefits of toughened glass for peace of mind. We’ve even seen conservatories used as home gyms or meditation areas, perfect for saving on those expensive gym memberships. So, the only question left to answer is what will you use your new conservatory for?

Living Elegance, 232-236 Wimborne Road, Poole, BH15 3DL Telephone: 01202 339910 E-mail: info@livingelegance.co.uk Tiny Bird Textiles, Ailsa Wilson Telephone: 01202 249 600 / 07854 221 879 E-mail: tinybirdtextiles@gmail.com Twitter: @tinybirdtextile

Building a conservatory on your property can do a lot more than just provide somewhere to sit and read on a sunny day.

Since you certainly can’t change your home’s location or its size quickly or easily, the one thing that you do have control over is the presentation. Home Staging is the art of dressing or ‘staging’ a home to appeal to the maximum number of potential buyers – in the most cost effective way.

CONSERVATORIES: THE MOST VERSATILE ROOM IN YOUR HOME?

William Yeoward

Somers House Designs is a full service interior design company located in Ringwood on the edge of the New Forest. Based in the beautiful Grade II listed building known as Manor Hatch, it houses both a stunning furniture showroom and an extensive library of fabrics & wall coverings.

One of London’s leading creative forces, William designs fabric and wallpaper collections for Designers Guild which convey his enduring and passions both for the quintessential British countryside, as well as snapshots and inspirations from his addictive love of travel ALBERESQUE FABRICS Indigo themed eclectic prints, weaves and velvets Alberesque draws upon the journeys of a traveller, to express the inspirations which accumulate in the enquiring mind, and find new expressions for them as fabric designs. William Yeoward plays part curator and part creator, reviving lost treasures with texture and enthusiasm. be they shapes steeped in classicism, or ethnic wonders brought to life in embroidery, this collection should both comfort and excite. Upholstery weaves and linen prints remain a staple here, with the new addition of some luxurious velvets. William’s palette continues his passion for blue and white to which he is unquestionably loyal, but he offers a refreshing modernity too with the use of grey white and damson.

INVESTMENT NEWS

PROPERTY IS ONE INVESTMENT OPTION – HAVE YOU CONSIDERED THE OTHERS? Our Investment and Pension specialist, Martyn Charlwood highlights the importance of tax planning to maximise the success of your investments. In previous articles I have highlighted the attraction of Pensions, ISAs, Unit Trusts, Offshore Bonds etc. I have emphasised the value true investment specialists can contribute to the management of these funds, both in terms of wealth preservation and of course income and growth. Whilst the above are key contributors to the success of these investments, let’s not forget the tax consequences which will dictate which investment or investments are best and most suited to your particular circumstances. Property as an example can of course be an attractive investment but held within a tax wrapper such as a pension can be considerably more attractive. For illustrative purposes let’s assume the following: •

Two additional rate tax payers each purchase identical commercial properties on the same day valued at £500,000.00, one via a pension and the other in the individuals own name Both properties command the same rental income of £25,000.00 p.a. (i.e. 5.0% p.a. net of charges and deductions) and both appreciate in value at 4% p.a. Both properties are sold at the end of a 10 year period

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

Let’s compare the tax implications of both options and in turn the net effect upon the sale of these assets at the end of a 10 year period.

Property not held within a pension

Property held within a pension

Income tax paid on a total rental income of £250,000 over 10 years (assumes 45% rate of tax)

£112,500

£0.00

Capital Gains Tax if sold after 10 years with a property value increase of £240,000 (assumes 28% rate of tax)

£64,092

£0.00

Net proceeds retained (net of tax) upon the sale of the properties

£813,048

£990,000

The above example seeks to demonstrate that investing via an appropriate tax wrapper (in this case a pension) can make a good investment a great investment. Taking the above example a stage further, over and above the Income and Capital Gains Tax savings, in the event of death the property held in the pension can be passed to beneficiaries without any liability to Inheritance tax whereas the property held in the individuals own name would be potentially liable to 40% Inheritance tax. More recently we were able to assist clients with an investment of £2.5 million. Their circumstances were such that they required capital growth together with an income of £100,000.00 p.a. A pension was a minor part of their overall capital

sum, none of which was invested in property on this occasion but we were able to put together a combination of investments utilising their various tax free allowances in such a way that they incurred less than 2% tax.

James Tiller MARLA Lettings Manager

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.

TALKING BUSINESS

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

Northfield Property Solutions Steeve & Emma Betsy Northfield offer a complete property solutions service, managing projects from concept to completion. Co owned by husband and wife duo Emma and Steeve Betsy, the couple has driven the business from a one-man band to a recognized company, with a team of skilled workers. Carefully considering quality over cost, Northfield offer services including, but by no means limited to, building, refurbishments, interior and landscape design. Emma says, “We can offer an array of services that will make your house into a home”. Once the customer has their structural engineers calculations and planning permission, if required, Northfield can take care of the rest. Beginning the company with the workmanship of Steeve, it was Steeve’s drive and determination to make his life meaningful and to provide a comfortable way of life for his family that meant in a matter of years, Northfield evolved. No longer just the handy work of Steeve, Northfield comprises of a team of specialist workers and a busy office premises. So how do Northfield rival their competitors? Northfield take grave consideration of quality and reputation. Having created a solid reputation, Northfield can offer their clients a service that’s guaranteed to perform. Although there are always clients out there that are purely driven by price,

Emma says, “sometimes it’s merely the cost of VAT that’s the tipping point, but really any reputable builder should be registered”. Considering the economic state, Northfield has remained fairly untouched and survived the economic downfall. Reducing their workforce a little, Northfield ticked along until the population gained confidence again. Recommendations from past

As house prices soar Northfield has seen their workload for extensions triple in the past few years, with homeowners choosing to improve their existing home as opposed to moving elsewhere. Looking to the future of Northfield, Emma tells, “We are quite happy as we are”. Comfortable with their

footing in the building industry, the business enables full control to be exerted over each build, providing an all round, better service. Although the couple are happy with their achievements, especially as Emma says “when the phone rings and the person on the other end tells us Mr. & Mrs. ‘So and So’ has recommended you and we would like you to create our extension for us” there are always plans in the pipeline to develop. Keeping the business local is key to keeping the costs reachable and using local staff and sub-contractors from the surrounding areas of Bournemouth, Hampshire and Dorset, Northfield tell me “there is more than enough work in the area to keep us all very busy”.

HOME IMPROVEMENTS SEALED BLOCKS

DECKING

LILLIPUT JET WASH Q&A House Magazine sits down with Dan Caunter from Liliput Jet Wash to discuss all the benefits of a professional jet wash service.

Why should you use Lilliput Jet Wash? If you have ever attempted to jet wash your own drive, patio or path in the past you will know how physically demanding and monotonous it can be. Our very powerful pressure washing machine produces a lot more power than the ‘off the shelf’ ones available in DIY stores. With our 21’’ surface cleaner we can restore a drive or patio back to its former glory in a fraction of the time and to a much higher standard. What surfaces can be cleaned? We clean Drives, Pool sides, patio’s paths and walls. Our equipment can effectively restore Block paving, slabs, Natural Stone, Decking, Concrete and Tarmac.

BEFORE

AFTER

What are the common issues your customer’s face? We find that weeds, moss, mold and algae that have built up over the winter are the most common problems they face. Slippery decking, rubbish bin sludge and sea weed on boat slip ways are some others.

PATIO

Most commonly we restore block paved driveways. This procedure includes a powerful jet wash removing the grime and mold, followed by fresh kiln dried sand brushed back in between the blocks. We can make an old tired drive look as good as new. Can a surface be protected further? In addition to cleaning we can seal a drive or patio. This has a number of benefits. It will enhance the look and color of the surface, it locks the sand in place on block paving and it will prolong the return of weeds and moss. It adds an acrylic like layer over the surface that also protects stains from penetrating the surface.

With our 21’’ surface cleaner we can restore a drive or patio back to its former glory in a fraction of the time and to a much higher standard How can I get a quote? Our work is priced by the square meter and the rate varies dependent on surface type. We prefer to visit potential customers so that we can provide an exact quote, however we are always available to give an estimate over the phone or by email. Quotes are free.

Contact For a free quotation or more information please call Daniel on 07468 514 114 or visit our site www.lilliputjetwash.co.uk to fill out our quotation form. 85

CUTTING THE CORD 20 years ago a brand new vacuum cleaner burst onto the market. These Dyson cleaners became synonymous with efficient and unusual designs of floorcare. Out were the inefficient bags and in were the large see through dust containers (love them or hate them!) and HEPA filtration. This sparked a radical change that is still going on. The latest trend is the move to cordless vacuuming, but this time Dyson is not the only major player in the market.

house sensing the dirt and picking it up. All you have to do is empty the container every couple of days. The Roomba will spend up to an hour and 40 minutes every day cleaning your house and when finished, will return to its base station to recharge. But don’t judge these little guys by their size, they are extremely efficient at picking up the dust and dirt, outperforming many of their large upright contemporaries.

Cutting the cord on vacuuming has been a long time coming, and it is all due to the improvements in motor and battery efficiency that has driven the recent developments. Bosch and Dyson and others are now offering vacuum cleaners that work as well as a normal cleaner, but are and much more convenient to use. Being so light, they make cleaning up those small spills quick and easy without the need to unwind that annoying cable.

If that isn’t enough, iRobot also offer a hard floor cleaner which will wash and scrub your floor and then squeegee up the water leaving a beautifully clean floor. Adrian Fry from George Fry in Boscombe, has a wide range of cordless and handheld cleaners on display in store and you can even take home an iRobot cleaner to try without obligation.

None the less, it is still a chore, so what else is there to remove this time consuming job? How about the new range of robotic vacuum cleaners from iRobot? Already involved in military robot design, iRobot set to the more challenging task of keeping your house clean! What they have developed has brought about the next revolution in floor cleaning called the Roomba.

Lithium-ion batteries give up to 60minutes run time on the Bosch Athlet range 114

You can now set these compact cleaners to vacuum your floors daily, while you are out at work or sitting in the sun on your patio. Using a host of built in sensors these cleaners move round your

House talks business with Wojciech Mroz of Vigo Cleaning Services.

TALKING BUSINESS WITH WOJCIECH MROZ Company owner Wojciech Mroz set up Vigo cleaning services 3 years ago. An entrepreneurial character, Wojciech was keen to begin his own business having worked as a chef prior for many years. Spotting a gap in the market for mobile steam cleaning the company was born from this need. Beginning with carpet cleaning, Vigo cleaning services has developed and grown now offering an array of services to suit the client’s needs.

122

Wojciech explained that his company revolves around the client’s needs and wants. When clients have approached Vigo cleaning services with requests for services that the business might not currently provide for, they will endeavour to act upon this, and will seek to provide the specialist equipment necessary to fulfil the request. The customer is always at the forefront of Vigo cleaning services, and Wojciech tells “we might not be the cheapest cleaning service available, but we pride ourselves on quality of services and our ability to tailor make a cleaning program to suit the clients specification” Vigo cleaning specialise in the usage of steam to clean products instead of large quantities of water. By doing so the service can be provided at a cheaper

cost, reduces waste, and is less tainting on the environment. More economically sustainable and environmentally friendly, Wojciech has made it his business to not follow suit with most cleaning companies and make a stance at improving the way in which we clean. Providing mobile steam cleaning, Vigo cleaning can come to you, making them a hassle free service provider.

the winter months to protect the underneath of vehicles a protective spray can be applied to prevent salt damage. After the winter months the car can be cleaned of any residue underneath ready for the springtime. At Vigo they can offer any of these services along with regular valeting dependent upon request and are not averse to caring for a fleet of vehicles.

A recent purchase by Vigo cleaning is the ozone treatment equipment that removes bad odours. A unique piece of equipment to Vigo cleaning, this is a service not usually provided by most cleaning companies. Largely aiding moving in and moving out cleaning services, the usage of the ozone treatment has been particularly beneficial. Providing a full cleaning service to deep clean homes in the process of a move, Vigo has all the specialist equipment required to fully valet oven, carpet, windows, patios etc. If your ovens looking a little grubby after the Christmas season or your carpets could do with a clean after the summer months, Vigo can cater to your needs.

Currently servicing Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole, in these crucial first few years of building the business, it has been in the interest of Vigo to focus specifically on local areas. Building a strong reputation on their doorstep and acquiring regular clients Vigo has seen recommendation after recommendation come through the door.

In the early stages of Vigo cleaning, car valeting was a core part of the business. What Vigo is offering their customers now is the ability to build a car maintenance plan to suit the clients vehicle requirements and there own. Opposed to sticking with a regimented cost for valeting, Vigo will access what care your vehicle would benefit from and how often your vehicle should be seen too. During

Conservatives are in with England pretty much coloured in blue. Fellow letting agents are probably all sighing with relief as the Labour and Green policies were not in our favour, mainly with the promise of abolishing letting agent fees to tenants, which in turn would have meant increasing fees paid by landlords, who would inevitably looked to increasing rents and thus passing the cost onto the tenant anyway! Landlords are rejoicing at the thought of capped rents, minimum 3/5 year tenancies, mandatory landlord licensing, retaliatory Section 21’s being for now being a distant bad dream. Although I am in favour of longer tenancies as I believe this gives more stability to the tenants (as well as the landlord) and tenants would hopefully become more involved with their local community area as they feel they would be around for longer as a neighbour. So, the Conservative are in and they want more tenants to own their own home and are offering 20% discounts for first time buyers on new builds as well this Autumn introducing the Help to Buy cash ISA, which for every £200 saved the government will give 25% (£25) capped to £3000. So a first time buyer can save £12,000 and the government will give £3,000. If you are a couple you can have a Cash ISA each bringing the total to £30,000 Deposit towards your first property. Good news for home owners, the conservatives want to eliminate your residential home from being included in your inheritance tax

up to £1m. David Cameron is also keen to reduce the payments going out on benefits. A couple of things to watch out for, they are looking to cap the benefit to £23k and those fit and able to work 18-21 year olds will not be entitled to housing benefit. Finally, Conservative’s flagship Universal Credit is coming to Poole and Bournemouth and is on course for a June roll out. Universal credit will include 6 benefits rolled into one monthly payment which will include housing benefit, being paid directly to the tenants. UC is intended to be simpler than the current system of benefits and Tax Credits as it is not specifically an ‘in work’ or ‘out of work’ benefit. It is one

credit for people whatever their employment status. Because of this, it should ease the transition into and out of work as people won’t need to transfer to a different benefit as their situation changes. Most existing benefit claimants will be moved over to UC during 2016 and 2017. Have a good week! SHARON Where experience, expertise and knowledge really makes a difference!

ASK THE EXPERT Aimee Ramage MARLA ANAEA Branch Manager, Burns Estates

Q – Why isn’t my property selling? Vendors are coming to me because their property has been on the market with other agents for a considerable period with no offers and a distinct lack of proactivity. Firstly I can assure you I’m not a typical estate agent. I will take the time to get to know you and want to do what’s right for you. Clients are told the only option is to reduce the asking price. However in the majority of cases, the answer is closer to home. My ‘back to basics’ philosophy has proven success so if you’re looking to sell then it’s vitally important that you address the following:1. Kerb appeal – stand outside your property & be honest with yourself about how it looks. Could improvements be made? You have to acknowledge that you may be biased. You don’t have to spend a fortune.

VIGO CLEANING SERVICES All aspects of commercial & domestic cleaning Specialists in moving in / out cleaning and after refurbishment / builders cleaning

2. Front door - Your front door is the centrepiece of your kerb appeal so repaint it in a tasteful colour. Update the outside lights and put potted plants on either side of the door. 3. Entrance Hall - The entrance hall creates a first impression, so make sure it is the right impression. Paint it in a neutral colour, remove any bulky furniture, upgrade the lighting and if you feel you need colour then accessorize with a nice rug and plug in air freshener. 4. Lighting - The wrong lighting can make your home feel dark and drab so install brighter modern lights to make your home seem sunny, cheerful and up to date. This doesn’t have to cost a fortune, but it will make a huge difference 5. Decoration - Paint colour is such a personal choice and potential buyers are likely to want to customize it themselves. If you have dark rich colours then repaint in neutral tones throughout to create an impression of light and space. 6. Don’t spend too much money! It’s tempting to throw money at a problem, but before you do – you need to think. Avoid major overhauls, especially in the kitchen and bathroom, but consider updating lighting, adding mirrors & replacing doorknobs if they are dated. Some new accessories will make it appear brighter and more homely. 7. De-clutter. How do you expect to impress potential buyers with a cluttered house? If you have outgrown your home, start packing and if you don’t have anywhere to put it then use storage. You don’t want to give people reasons NOT to buy your property.

MOBILE STEAM CAR WASH & CAR VALETING We save your time, money & environment

8. Pets – you need to consider that some people love them, some hate them and some are allergic to them, so make sure that on the viewing they are out of the house where possible. There’s nothing worse than walking into a property that smells of pets. 9. Back garden - What is the first thing people see when they walk out the back of your property? An unkempt garden? Loose concrete slabs? Your back garden should look like a space for entertaining. Tidy it up & buy some cheap patio furniture to make the most of the space on offer!!!!! 10. Make sure the property is clean & tidy – Buyers expect to see an immaculate home with no signs of dirt. Remove pizza boxes from the worktops and do the washing up! Potential buyers need to imagine themselves living in “your” space. PROPERTIES URGENTLY REQUIRED FOR SUITED BUYERS AND WAITING TENANTS IN ALL AREAS Whether you’re looking to buy, sell, rent or let please call me now on 01202 55 33 35 or email aimee@burnsestates.co.uk for honest & professional advice at every step of the way. www.burnsestates.co.uk 142

OUTDOOR LIVING

RELAX IN THE SUNSHINE 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 NEWS The latest news on all things motoring. By Nick Fletcher

MAZDA MX-5 PRICING ROAD TEST: HYUNDAI I20 SE PREMIUM

162

The new Mazda MX-5 will be priced from £18,495 when it is launched in the UK later this summer, the company has announced. “With a superior power to weight ratio, rear-wheel drive, perfect 50:50 weight distribution and more comfort and technology than ever before, the new MX-5 is pure roadster,” says Mazda. There is a choice of two engines -1.5 and 2.0 litres - and nine models across five trim levels. Featuring Mazda’s awardwinning SKYACTIV technology, the MX5’s lightweight petrol engines deliver new levels of performance and economy. Standard features across the range include alloy wheels, LED headlights, a leather steering wheel, plus a lightweight fabric hood. SE-L models add LED daytime running lights, climate control air-conditioning, DAB radio, Bluetooth®and cruise control, plus Mazda’s MZD-Connect connectivity and infotainment system with 7-inch Colour touch-screen display and Multimedia Commander. SE-L models with the 2.0-litre 160hp engine are distinguished by 17-inch Gunmetal alloy wheels and piano black door mirrors, and benefit from a strut tower bar and limited slip differential. Step up to Sport trim and both the 1.5 and 2.0-litre cars feature rain sensing wipers, rear parking sensors, smart keyless entry, Premium Bose SurroundSound and heated leather seats. With the 1.5-litre engine, Sport trim MX-5’s come with 16-inch Gunmetal alloy wheels and piano black door mirrors. Sport models with the 2.0-litre 160hp engine benefit from a dynamic set-up that includes Sports suspension featuring Bilstein dampers, a limited slip differential and strut tower bar.

Hyundai’s new i20 competes in the hard-fought small car sector dominated by the likes of the Ford Fiesta and VW Polo, but undercuts them on pricing and is a little more roomy, writes NICK FLETCHER. The i20 is arguably better looking too, with sleek attractive styling, and it comes with Hyundai’s famous five-year warranty. Prices start at £10,695 for the adequately kitted entry models, though many buyers will opt for the mid-range SE versions which include air-con, alloy wheels, rear parking sensors, Bluetooth, cruise control and four electric windows, plus lane departure warning and speed limiter - a good value package. There are 1.2 and 1.4 litre petrol engines and a 1.1 litre diesel. My recent test model had the 1.4 unit, and was in

SE Premium trim, priced at £15,325. Extra kit includes an opening paroramic sunroof. The exterior styling of the i20 is very pleasing and was much admired. The cabin is smart-looking too, with a clear functional layout, two-tone trim to help give a lighter ambiance, and very comfortable seating. Rear seat is space is greater than that of most rivals and three adults can travel in the back without too much of a squeeze. The test model has a top speed of 114 mph and a 0-60 mph time of 11.6 seconds. Fuel economy is 51.4 mpg combined, and emissions are 127g/km. The i20 has a pleasant driving feel, smooth and quiet, and with excellent ride quality. In recent years, Hyundai – always noted for dependability – has upped its game in terms of build quality and styling and can now challenge the best in the sector.

ROAD TEST: BMW Z4 Two-seater convertibles are an evocative symbol of summer and one of the most eye-catching of the current crop is the BMW Z4. It is cheaper than its main rivals, the Audi TT Roadster and Porsche Boxster, and in my view is more visually striking, writes NICK FLETCHER. The entry level 18i Z4 is priced at £27,740 and is powered by a 2.0 litre engine offering 154 hp. There are also 181 hp and 242 hp versions of this engine and if you want even more performance, there are bigger, sixcylinder engines available too. The featured test model is the entry version, which has a quick 0-60mph time of 7.9 seconds, and a top speed of 137 mph. Fuel economy is more acceptable than you may think – 41.mpg combined. Zestful performance makes this model a delight to drive. It is eager, very responsive, utterly assured and, for this type of car, remarkably comfortable, with a great driving position and excellent supportive seats. All Z4s come with Dyamic Drive Control which allows you to tailor the throttle, steering and stability control to your own requirements. The cabin looks terrific, with a premium ambiance, top quality materials and a driver-focussed dashboard layout. There is adequate stowage for day to day items, and the boot is a decent size if you don’t lower the metal roof - capacity is much less if you do as the roof

panel swallows up a lot of loadspace. Mind you, there is still just enough for two overnight bags – if you travel light! Standard equipment on this entry level version is short of generous, but does include manual airconditioning, alloy wheels, front side and curtain airbags, DAB radio and Bluetooth. Overall, the Z4 impresses with its elegant yet still potent-looking styling, its flawless build quality and its outstanding driving dynamics.


MOTORING

TERRACLEAN Healthy living for your car. Proven to restore performance, reduce emissions and improve mpg. What is TerraClean? TerraClean is a unique technology process which is highly effective in removing the carbon deposits which build up in any internal combustion engine. The brand TerraClean is applied to both the equipment and the chemicals used. What type of vehicles can be TerraCleaned? We can TerraClean most vehicles; Motorcycles, Cars, Vans, Trucks, Agricultural, Plant and Machinery. Fuel injected vehicles – Port and Direct injection and carburettor vehicles are all capable of being TerraCleaned. Are there any vehicles you do not TerraClean? We can TerraClean nearly all combustion engines with the exception of the Mazda Rotary Wankle engine and 2- stroke engines that do NOT have an independent oil supply i.e. not pre-mix engines. Can you TerraClean a Direct Injection Engine? Yes we can. Even though the fuel is injected directly into the combustion chamber the TerraClean process is very effective post detonation and will continue to clean through engine gas recirculation and down to rear of the exhaust system. Will TerraClean clean my EGR Valve? TerraClean can help restore EGR valves but if the EGR is heavily carboned a separate cleaning process may be required. Most importantly TerraClean is the best method for preventing the root cause of the carbon build up that causes EGR valves and other components to fail. Will TerraClean clean my DPF filter? DPF filters are similar to honeycombs, if the DPF is completely blocked it is difficult to clean, however TerraClean will passively clean a DPF filter. We do have a dedicated DPF/EGR cleaning process for badly affected parts.

I am concerned removing carbon will damage my engine and reduce compression? Leaving carbon in your engine will damage your engine! Carbon robs your engine of performance, causes pre-ignition (pinging), increases emissions and lowers fuel mileage. All of these add extra wear and tear on the engine. Removing the carbon at regular service intervals restores engine performance, allows for cleaner burn and extends engine life. Where does the technology originate? TerraClean technology was developed and is manufactured in Canada. Can TerraClean damage my vehicle’s engine? No, the TerraClean process carried out by one of our trained operators is safe for your vehicle. What makes TerraClean better than the pour in decarboniser I have been using for years? The primary reason pour-in products are less effective is that they are heavily diluted by the onboard fuel and try to clean the engine while under load (vehicle is running normally day to day). Under load, combustion is less efficient and can in fact, create more carbon due to poor combustion in an already carboned engine due to poor combustion. Pour-in products may create more harm than

good. An effective cleaning chemical added to a fuel tank would require such a high concentration that could damage the fuel pump and elastomers within the fuel system, cost much more and still only provide a short term solution. TerraClean is different. First, connecting the TerraClean machine directly to the fuel rail and bypassing the vehicle’s fuel tank means the service is using 100%TerraClean fluid, when passed through our unique reactor in the machine is what creates the cleaning action. TerraClean’s nano-technology removes carbon from the engine one molecule at a time rather than dissolving carbon with heavy and aggressive solvents. This is how TerraClean not only cleans the fuel rail and injectors, but also the combustion chamber, Oxygen sensor (lambda sensor), catalytic converter to improve overall performance, lower emission and improved fuel economy. “TerraClean increased throttle response on my Audi A3 and produced a significant increase in power and performance. Thumbs Up for TerraClean!” HOUSE Magazine For more information please contact Neil Hansler on 07850 400 826 or email neilhansler@aol.com.

NEW SCIROCCO DEBUT Available from May, a new 217 hp Volkswagen Scirocco GTS model, offering a 0-60 mph time of 6.5 seconds and a top speed of 152 mph. It features exclusive trim, latest generation infortainment system and 18-inch alloy wheels.It comes with a choice of manual or 6-speed DSG gearboxes. Prices and specifications have not yet been announced but the model is likely to be around £30,000. In addition, the Scirocco GTS comes with the R-Line package as standard, which includes distinctive R-style bumpers (at the front with integrated fog lamps and glossy black radiator and air inlet grilles), custom side sill extensions, a roof spoiler (also R-style) and a diffuser. The new model can be ordered with a sporty GTS decal for the body as an option. This option features two decorative red stripes that run centrally from the bonnet over the roof and the boot (if the car is painted in “Flash Red” the stripes are black).

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

THE NEXT GENERATION OF FACIAL If your current Facial and skincare routine is not giving you the results you desire its time to ramp it up and book a Laser Skin Rejuvenation Facial. Our FLO Laser System gives immediate noticeable results by stimulating the collagen and elastin in your skin instantly smoothing and plumping not to mention evening out skin tones. Fine Lines, skin discolouration and uneven texture can all contribute to the appearance of ageing, tired skin. Lasers are an effective and reliable way to help combat these problems and can be used alone or in combination with other anti-ageing treatments such as non-surgical facelifts, peels and microdermabrasion.

How does Laser Skin Rejuvenation Work? Skin rejuvenation works in 2 main ways to freshen the appearance of the skin giving it a more youthful and bright appearance. Firstly the laser stimulates the production of collagen and elastin which contribute to give skin its youthful texture and radiance. Secondly, the laser works to diminish skin discolouration such as thread veins, age spots, acne scarring and redness. Before the treatment skin is prepped with a mild skin peel which enhances the results of laser skin

rejuvenation. A cooling gel is applied to desensitise the skin and help guide the laser. The laser is then directed onto the skin in small sections.

and elastin is produced, though some effects will be noticeable immediately after your course of treatments.

Depending on your skin, treatment takes approximately 60 minutes and we recommend a course of 6-8 sessions spaced 4 weeks apart. We will suggest an individual treatment plan for your requirements at your consultation with a Chic Laser Specialist.

It is essential all clients use an SPF on the areas being treated to help protect the skin from the sun’s rays. Failure to use an SPF will result in the treatment result being compromised.

Following your treatment you may experience some redness and swelling for up to 48 hours. Rarely the skin maybe temporarily slightly discoloured and small blisters may appear which will heal in a small time. Any pigmented spots will initially darken before flaking approximately 4-7 days after the treatment. The full effect of the laser rejuvenation is normally shown within 8-12 weeks as the new collagen

Is it Painful?

The treatment is mildly uncomfortable and the laser has been described as feeling like ‘pin pricks’. However the gel applied prior to the laser being applied has a de-sensitising effect.

The Consultation Before your treatment we request that you come in for a FREE consultation with one of our Laser Specialists to check your suitability, set a treatment plan and perform a patch test.

TALKING BUSINESS

TALKING BUSINESS House talks business with Joshua Simons and Steve Crawford of Elite Black.

LAUNCHING THE ELITE BLACK PRIVILEGE CARD House magazine caught up with Joshua and Steve between striking deals for their latest venture, one that House is proud to be a key partner in. Where has Elite Black come from? Since launching Live Elite (now Elite Living) over 3 years ago, we have been fortunate enough to have worked with hundreds of local businesses in Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole, in turn sending hundreds of thousands of people through their doors. However, we recognise that there’s a limited appeal to daily deal sites, both from the business and consumer’s perspective. So that’s where Elite Black was born. With our user base rising past the 65,000 people mark, we felt we could offer more to our clients and our users at the same time, an irresistible offering outperforming any daily deals site out there. So what is Elite Black? We believe that with Elite Black we have a new concept that answers the questions many businesses, and users, have been asking us over the last few years; principally, how to not only attract new customers, but more importantly, how to retain them.

166

they would like to be included. We consider all applications and ask that the businesses offer our card holders something that whets the appetite. Furthermore, we plan to work with the best of breed in each sector, driving lots of new customers to our partner businesses throughout the year. What’s in it for the card holders, apart from great savings of course? With this concept, Elite Black cardholders will in turn see businesses they would never see on regular daily deal websites, as well as having a far larger and more varied choice, day by day.

FOOD & DRINK

REVIEWED

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

JALARRA 45 Poole Hill, Bournemouth BH2 5PW Cue the lights, raise the curtain and let the show begin. By day Jalarra is consumed by natural light making this venue the perfect haunt to sit back with a little sun on your face and enjoy perhaps the best coffee in town. By night shades of amber and bronze project a hue from reclaimed theatrical lighting above, putting Jalarra in the spot light. Phantom of the Opera style the cobwebs have been blown and the treasure that is Jalarra has been unveiled. Retaining its original brickwork, peaking through burnt orange render, this theatre is orchestrated harmoniously. A seamless division between bar and restaurant to bandstand and dance floor there is a little something for everyone to enjoy. Adult themed this is not a PG rating. Husband and wife duo Lisa and Tony have placed their heart and soul into the building of Jalarra and you can feel the passion and workmanship upon entering. Lisa explained to me that the venue was crafted out of her own desires to find a stomping ground where you could enjoy a coffee on your own without feeling uncomfortable, and alternatively in the evening could join your girlfriends for a boogie and a few glasses of wine. Sat upon Poole Hill opposite Koh Thai, Jalarra lends itself to the need for a nearby dance floor to continue the night into the early hours of the morning. Live music and great cocktails nobody wants to finish their night early if they don’t have too. Babysitter at home is not an opportunity to be wasted. Although a tad early to be drinking, and on a Tuesday lunch, we must all seem like alcofrolics with these lunchtime review’s, House Magazine took

168

to Jalarra to enjoy a glass of Malbec and sample the release of their latest menu. On the menu there is quite a choice ranging from pizza to tapas and a vegetarian option for almost every dish. This is a vegetarian’s heaven I’m sure, with no longer one option to pick from but a full menu. First a lamb tagine jewel studded with plump golden raisins, sweet with honey. The crowd pleaser chicken and courgette pizza murdered by the cutting skills of our Sales Director Ross remained delicious despite its battering. Another favourite Nachos pilled high with guacamole and salsa you really can’t go wrong. A trio of tapas dishes accompanied by a side salad, but what might come as a surprise, was the most stunning porcini mushrooms that dress the salad. Not even a huge mushroom fan I was enjoying a little bit of mushroom bliss. With a choice of seafood, meat or vegetarian you are by no means limited by choice. Classics such a patatas bravas and oddities like flaked salmon upon sliced new potatoes and topped with melted cheese, a reincarnation of fish pie, you taste buds will certainly be tickled. Pieeyed with the enormity of food adorning our table and tables around us, we continued to make our way through Pieminster Heidi Pie. A goat’s cheese, spinach and sweet potato pie with a hot water crust pastry. Yummy.

You would have thought with this long list of foods there would be no room for dessert, but maybe a little greedy, which we unashamed to admit are, we could not possibly refuse the treat of dessert. Dessert at Jalarra is not your usual gateaux or sponge pudding. Instead the menu comprised of pizza bases topped with chocolate and cream cheese or honey nuts and dates. Neither I admit struck me as my sort of dessert, cheese and chocolate draws red in my mind. However I was proved wrong. Silky upon crunchy the cream cheese balances the sweetness of milk chocolate providing a delicious marriage of flavours. The honey and nuts was frankly beautiful. Crushed nuts caught in a web of sweet honey, poured upon a crispy dough, rather delicious. For those who lean toward the more traditional desserts there is the chefs special of the day. I can’t guarantee what this will be, but was delighted with our option of rhubarb crumble. Seasonal, harvested in the months of April/ May that sharpness cut through by the sweet rubble of crumble topping, ohhh I could quite happy devour that right now. A light morning snack, its only 11am. The show must draw to an end and the curtain must sadly close for House, but we leave Jalarra, although a little heavier, happier. A gang of coffee lovers, we certainly wont be able to stay away too long. Foamy and frothy with a powerful kick we don’t think much else will live up to Jalarra’s.

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

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

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

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

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

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