SUPPORT JULIA’S HOUSE BY DONATING TO ‘TEAM SPIDERMAN’ Matthew Fleming-Duffy from Cherry Mortgage and Finance LTD along with some friends is taking part in the Monte Carlos or Bust Banger Race from the 4th to the 6th of June to raise money for Julia’s House.

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

The teams navigate their way through 4 countries, travelling some adrenaline pumping twists and turns and even crossing the Devil’s Bridge to Monte Calos. Team Spiderman will attempt this in a Volvo brought for just £85. All money raised will be donated to Julia’s House, supporting seriously ill children and their families across Dorset and South Wiltshire. If anyone would like to support them please donate to www.justgiving. com/matt-dave-adam

“Once the conversion was complete, I did a 5 day test. When the outside temperature was around zero at nights, I measured the inside temperature at 10pm after I’d turned off the underfloor heating, then again at 10am the next day. It had gone from 14deg C to 10deg; that’s a decrease of only around 0.3deg per hour. When we had the original roof, the room could be down near the outside temperature in as little as an hour!” Because John wanted to minimise the heat loss, he chose the LivinROOF in its all solid form, with no glass panels. However it can be made with anything up to 50% glass and still have excellent heat retention. The LivinROOF can be built as part of a new conservatory/orangery but was designed mainly for updating existing conservatories by replacing the original roof. For more info on the LivinROOF or any of the products Swain & Rands can offer visit www.swainandrands.co.uk, email info@swainandrands.co.uk or call the office 01202 536 422.

RARE BEACH HUT OPPURTUNITY Key Drummond offers an extremely rare opportunity to purchase a first floor brick and stone built terraced beach chalet situated on the Branksome Chine promenade some 25 metres from the beach shop. This is proving very popular with offers within the first 24 hours.

This rare find is proving very popular so don’t delay in expressing. For more information contact Key Drummond on 01202 700771 or email sales@ keydrummond.com. Visit www. keydrummond.com

The chalet is approached via a communal staircase with security gate leading to the rear of the chalets where there is a door to the beach chalet.

Now may be an opportune time to review your mortgage according to local estate agency Fox & Sons in Poole. New EU laws could see UK homeowners stranded on their lender’s expensive Standard Variable Rate (SVR) when their mortgage comes to an end and Fox & Sons advises shopping around to check that you are on the right deal and the right rate. The EU ‘Mortgage Credit Directive’ comes into force in March 2016 but can be backdated by six months. The directive, which is in effect an extension of the mortgage affordability criteria that was introduced last year, has stringent rules to check whether borrowers can afford their mortgage deal not just now but if interest rates are to rise. Currently lenders can bypass these checks when an existing homeowner is remortgaging but under the new EU rules, they won’t be able to do so. “It is certainly worth reviewing your mortgage ahead of when these new directives come into play and checking whether there are savings to be made and to ensure you do not get stuck on a higher rate SVR when you come to remortgage”, says Mortgage Manager Anna Cullen, at Fox & Sons. “There are currently some great mortgage products available and we continue to enjoy low interest rates, so reviewing your current mortgage situation now could be a very astute financial decision.” Fox & Sons offers mortgage and remortgage advice from its network of branches and has access to many different mortgage products. To speak to a Mortgage Advisor, please call Fox & Sons on 01202 672736 or email: poole@sequencehome.co.uk.

Branksome Cliff has the benefit of electric power points. The chalet has a pair of glazed French doors lead out to the balcony, with a glass balustrade which overlooks the promenade, beach and sea.

TIME TO REVIEW YOUR MORTGAGE? SUGGESTS FOX & SONS


LANDLORDS ACROSS BOURNEMOUTH REVIEWED The vast majority of landlords and agencies are acutely aware of the problems surrounding student housing. Some may deny it, perhaps blaming the tenants themselves. Agencies know which of their landlords are problematic those unlikely to fix issues raised by the tenants. Move’m have personally spoken to the directors of most agencies in Bournemouth, most have admitted to that something needs to change. Move’m has recently moved into new offices in Bournemouth, grown to a team of nearly 10 and has been used by over a million people in the UK, the majority of which have been students. In an effort to provide a fair and sustainable system, Move’m has launched a lettings portal. In addition to agencies being encouraged to reply to all feedback, they can automatically list their properties. The system is completely free until 2016 and agencies can register interest today by emailing lettings@movem.co.uk or by visiting our website www.movem.co.uk For years landlords and investors looked towards students as cash cows. Times are changing, let’s reward the majority of amazing letting agents, who go the extra mile and publicly show prospective tenants why they need to avoid particular agencies and landlords in Bournemouth.

NEW PLAY CAFÉ IS COMING TO WIMBORNE Wimborne is set to welcome a new resident to town as Dragaroo opens his play café on Monday 18th May. The play café which is a first for Wimborne, and is located at the old Blockbuster shop, on Eastbrook Row, Crownmead, will provide a family focused environment in which little ones can explore their imagination and grow through invisible learning and adults can enjoy a well-earned cuppa in a relaxed and fun setting. Mainly aimed at 0-6 year olds, and opening Monday-Friday 9.30-4.30pm, it is hoped that local residents and visitors with children will come and have a fun time playing with the traditional, imaginative and sensory toys and relaxing with something to eat and drink. Proprietor Kim Henry-Worsley said: “The idea of a play café in Wimborne came about during a somewhat traumatic trip out with two of my four grandchildren (aged 1+3). The weather was dismal, there was insufficient room to get two buggies into the café, the hot chocolate spilled over in the kerfuffle and we left soggy, chocolate stained and more stressed than on arrival. I had forgotten how challenging it was!” The Mayor of Wimborne Cllr Andy Hampton visited Dragaroo’s on Saturday 9 May for the pre-launch event and said:

“It is fantastic to see a Play café such as this in wimborne, the town has a large population of young families and this will be a great place for residents and visitors of the town with young children to come.” Dragaroo is the main character of the play café and visitors will be able to meet the 1m high cuddly character when visiting. Kim explains the origins of Dragaroo, she says: “‘Dragaroo’ himself came about some 25 years ago when my youngest daughter was only 3 and was given a toy for Christmas. A debate arose over whether it was a Dragon or a Kangaroo and so he was aptly named Dragaroo. Dragaroo became very much a part of the family and sat at the end of the bed during the years of ‘shut-eye town’ story time helping deal with many of the childhood antics”. For further information about the café visit www.dragarooplaycafe.co.uk or pop along and visit.

PRESTIGIOUS DEVELOPMENT TAKING SHAPE A prestigious development of new apartments on Poole Harbour’s edge is taking shape. One Shore Road, due to be completed in June, is a collection of seven new apartments in a stunning location close to the Sandbanks peninsular. The building has been designed by awardwinning Munden Robinson Architects to make the most of the exceptional views across Poole Harbour. Four of the seven apartments enjoy sea views from the hall and all of the bedrooms, as well as from the kitchen, dining and living rooms. The remaining three apartments still have the view from the entrance hall and master bedroom, as well as the kitchen, dining and living rooms, with the remaining bedrooms either opening out onto a private garden or enjoying views over Luscombe Valley Nature Reserve. One Shore Road was also designed to be a quality landmark building, and it features curved zinc walls set out in interlocking fish scale panels, to pick up on the waterside location. Curved cantilevered glass balustrades continue the flowing lines of the building without interfering with the view. Prices are from £1.3m. For more information and to register interest, contact Savills on 01202 708888 or glong@savills. com.

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.

With excellent resources and a wide variety of accommodation, Select Resorts Holidays are there to make your holiday a memorable one. Specialising in holidays to the Algarve in Portugal, Select Resorts Holidays have a strong presence in the region as a result of selling property there for many years. With many property owners wishing to rent their villas, apartments and townhouses to holidaymakers, Select Resorts Holidays has seen their collection dramatically grow over the 30 years they have been in operation. ABTA bonded, Select Resorts Holidays can offer you a safe booking and peace of mind. ABTA provides holidaymakers with financial protection in the event that there might be a crisis or if your travel company unexpectedly goes out of business. The small team is made up of four lovely ladies. The manager, Kat has 10 years’ experience in the travel industry - and is well travelled herself, as she loves visiting far off lands for her own holidays. Kat has a HND in Tourism and Leisure management obtained at Bournemouth University, and worked at other specialist tour operators for 3 years before joining Select Resorts Holidays. Heading up the close knit team, Kat likes to think of herself as an encouraging manager, that’s very organised. Describing herself as ‘a little bit anal’ she understands the importance of making sure nothing goes wrong with a client’s booking to ensure their holiday goes as smoothly as possible. She tells “we love being able to book something so lovely for people, and enjoy dreaming up fantastic holidays for our clients”.

Select Resorts Holidays are proud to have built a large portfolio of clients who return to book time and time again. “Thank you so much for all your hard work and unbelievable helpfulness, I can honestly say I have never dealt with anyone so helpful and professional before when trying to book a holiday” - Michelle Hawkins, booked 2014

Senior Reservations Executive Carol has been working with the company for 15 years. Previously, she lived in the sunshine and speaks fluent Portuguese – which definitely helps a company that has such a presence as a well-respected provider of high-quality holiday villas in the Algarve.

It’s no surprise clients continue to rebook their holidays through Kat and the team.

When I asked Carol why she remains ever as passionate about Select Resorts as she has for 15 years, she tells me “I enjoy the personal aspect of the work, speaking to clients, finding them the ideal property for their holiday. The fact I have built up a good working relationship with colleagues abroad and have many repeat clients is very rewarding”. Client Services Administrator Laura, recently joined the team having trained at Bath Travel. Friendly and enthusiastic, Laura is on hand to assist customers with all their after booking needs and extras. Accounts Manager Sandra completes the team. Another long serving member at Select Resorts, Sandra has an eye for detail and accuracy, making sure the numbers add up. The high-end company have even had the pleasure of booking for famous celebrities and sportspersons. Kat tells me “They enjoy the personal service we provide, as well as the selection of fantastic, private villas we offer. Sports people enjoy the sports on offer in the resorts that we sell and also have many friends in the same circle who own in the area”. Always keeping their eyes open for renting out new properties in the area with a view to expanding their

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.

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.

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,

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

Comparison Sites Under Fire Despite the popularity of using a Price Comparison Website (PCW) to search for General Insurance, experts and the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) have raised concerns over not just the

compliance of the sites, but also their effectiveness in providing the right cover for consumers. On the back of consumer research undertaken last year, the FCA have highlighted that “a focus on price could distract from crucial product features and lead consumers to make an inappropriate policy choice that does not suit their needs and requirements”. The research suggested that PCWs would actively avoid going into the required detail regarding product options, in order to maintain the perception of speed and ease, leading to an increased risk of client detriment. This assumption that PCWs offer quick and easy solutions to General Insurance is also under fire, with the FCA research revealing that many consumers found the volume of information and number of variables around GI products confusing and overwhelming.

Whitehead Vizard holds the Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme which is awarded to firms who can demonstrate a consistent quality service.

We fully appreciate the worry and anxiety that can be involved with property related transactions. Our conveyancing team has all the skill knowledge and experience to ensure a successful completion with the minimum of fuss and delay.

accreditation given to firms who have the highest professional standard of conveyancing practice and excellent customer service.

Caroline Parsons Partner Residential Property Department - Whitehead Vizard

What sets you apart from other conveyancing solicitors? When you use Whitehead Vizard your matter is always dealt with by a qualified legal advisor who has experience in dealing with residential conveyancing matters. You deal with the same person throughout the whole conveyancing transaction. We are a member of the Law Society Quality Conveyancing Scheme, an

If you had to summarise why someone would use you what would you say? We understand the stress of moving home and help to minimise this and to deal with the conveyancing in an efficient, approachable, straightforward and cost effective way. What area(s) do you cover for conveyancing? We primarily deal with properties in the Salisbury area but are able to assist clients buying and selling all over the country. Is there merit in using a local independent solicitor like yourself? If so why? As we are completely independent we have no ties to any particular

suppliers and so work exclusively for our clients. As a local solicitor we have extensive knowledge of all types of properties in the area from leases to country homes and farms. We can also recommend local estate agents, mortgage brokers and surveyors to make the move as smooth as possible. Has the market and therefore the service conveyancing provides changed over the years? The market has changed dramatically as it is now very difficult for first time buyers to get on the housing ladder. We can advise on HomeBuy and shared ownership schemes and also on gifts from the bank of Mum and Dad. Whitehead Vizard have also invested heavily in technology to ensure we can provide a fast and efficient service to clients to minimise delays and to ensure clients move as quickly as possible.

TALKING BUSINESS

TALKING BUSINESS House talks business with Richmond Home Improvement and MSP Business Services

LOCAL FIRMS COLLABORATE TO UNDERSTAND NEW REGULATIONS TWO local firms have collaborated to better understand the new CDM 2015 Health and Safety Regulations which came into force earlier this month.

“We are pro-active with our site monitoring and MSP carry out two audits and reviews of our Health & Safety Policy per year.

MSP Business Services have been advising Richmond Home Improvement Co on their obligations regarding this new legislation.

that despite the extra administration required, it only took him 20 minutes to put the plan together.

“So, with Malcolm’s help, all has become clear and we now fully understand our obligations.”

“There are a lot of businesses out there who are still unaware of the changes.”

Naturally, due to their diligence Richmond Home Improvement Co is a well-established and respected company, taking the safety of not just staff, but also their clients very seriously and ensuring a comprehensive Health & Safety policy is in place. They are also licensed by the Environment Agency and all waste is disposed of responsibly.

Malcolm Pitcher of MSP Business Services said: “We have been working with Richmond over the past few years with regard to their health and safety requirements and last year led them through their Constructionline, SafeContractor and CHAS - three nationally recognised accreditations. “These new Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015 affect all building projects, whether they are small domestic extensions or massive commercial building sites and the onus has now changed. All domestic building projects are now included under this Regulation” he said. Malcolm said: “All projects must now have a written Construction Phase Plan; there is a duty to make sure all persons carrying out the work have the correct skills, knowledge, training and experience. When I mentioned this plan to Allan Tofield at Richmond - and giving him some guidance - he came back smiling and telling me

126

He added, “One of the easiest ways to understand it is to make it visual and we have produced a flowchart to illustrate the main points.” Allan said “It’s a minefield of new regulations and we are very grateful to Malcolm at MSP for his help in understanding how they will affect us. At Richmond we have always been keen to ensure all our operatives are fully apprised of health and safety issues so we are fully compliant. We train them to understand the problems that may occur when working on site – whether at a private house, or on a commercial building site. He added, “We are regulated with recognised national bodies, such as Certass, giving our clients peace of mind when engaging Richmond to work on their property. All our staff are fully employed, trained and competent, meeting the CDM 2015 requirements.

TALKING BUSINESS

TALKING BUSINESS House talks business with Aimee Ramage from Burns Estates

Aimee Ramage Burns Estates Lettings is truly at the heart of Burns Estates, with a passion for building relationships with Landlords in and around Dorset. Managing an extensive portfolio of properties including apartments, family homes and commercial units Burns pride themselves on matching the right tenant to the right property. It is with enthusiasm that Aimee tells me “Landlords choose us because they know their property will be safe in our hands”. Supported by the core values of Honesty, Integrity and Transparency, Burns are able to offer competitive rates to secure your business. Aimee says “Our clients are at the heart of everything we do and we will work hard to ensure that we go above and beyond their expectations”. Vital to the business, the Burns team love letting and managing properties, and more importantly they are good at it. Aimee has been on both sides of renting properties, both as a Landlord and also as a Tenant. Having personally experienced both good and bad service from other Agents Aimee understands how fundamentally important it is to provide truly outstanding service. “You have to take the time to get to know your clients so you can adapt your service accordingly and provide what they want”. Lettings is all about multi-tasking so you need the right staff to achieve the required results. Burns have a fantastic team who all sing the same tune of providing an excellent service and this is achieved by loving what they do. Aimee says “Our business is ultimately successful because of the staff we have that work so well as a team”. Carla Miles is one of Burns’ dedicated Property Managers who has been a member of the team for over 7 years. Carla prides herself on offering exceptional service and looking after her clients on a daily basis. Carla tells me “Many people think managing a property is easy, but that’s because we make it look easy. In reality it takes a great deal of time, patience and hard work. As a Landlord you need to ask yourself

130

do you have enough time in the day to deal with tenant queries, maintenance issues, chasing late rent payments or inspecting your property.” Lara Milligan is a Senior Property Consultant with years of invaluable knowledge in the industry. Lara has specialist knowledge in the building industry which is a real asset to the clients and enables her to liaise with developers and investors on a daily basis assisting with their renovation projects. Lara tells me “We are here for our clients every step of the way and will always give honest and professional advice.

Our clients are at the heart of everything we do and we will work hard to ensure that we go above and beyond their expectations. We’ve just agreed a sale to an investor at £1.2 million, and will be managing and overseeing the renovation of the entire development to produce 12 new letting units. I love my job with Burns and working alongside the clients to get the best possible results for them”. Burns really can help with all areas of letting and managing property, and it’s clear that they do things properly and offer a bespoke service for the client. Burns Estates are licensed members of The Association of Residential Letting Agents (ARLA) which is an important criteria to look for when choosing an Agent. As an ARLA Agent you must

adhere to the strict code of practice that ensures that the Agent is properly insured and holds and accounts for client money in the correct manner. All of the Burns staff are ARLA qualified or are training for their qualifications and regularly attend further training to keep up to date with legislation, ensuring they are always able to offer the best possible advice. In the past Carla tells me “Landlords have contacted us unhappy with their current Agents asking for our help. Their Agents have invoiced excessive charges to their account without their consent, leaving them with little or no rental income. Others state they’ve suddenly been charged for emergency maintenance totaling hundreds of pounds without explanation”. Effective communication is the key to any successful relationship and therefore Burns strive to be honest with their Landlords from the outset This will include advice on how to present their property to attract the best possible tenants to how much they will spend at any one time on emergency maintenance issues to safeguard their investments. It really is clear to see that the team at Burns want to help make their Landlord’s journey the very best it can possibly be. Burns Estates are confident in saying they’re not just different but better. With a wealth of invaluable experience the lettings team are motivated to let your property swiftly to the right tenants with a tenancy to suit your requirements. This coupled with their dedicated property management team really makes them second to none. I’d say they have every right to be confident. With current campaigns detailed overleaf, Burns are keen to show new clients how good they are and will happily reward them for doing do. Rewards include 3 months free management and price matches to other ARLA Agents, Burns endeavor to keep new and existing customers confident in the service they are receiving. For a refreshingly proactive approach to your property call Aimee now on 01202 553335.

“We used another agent in Bournemouth for four years to rent our property in Honeycombe Beach. During the last few months there were lots of problems with the previous agent and tenant so we decided to find a new agency. We have found the team at Burns to be very efficient and professional. They always do their best in trying to find the right tenant. They always phone back and follow-up on calls. The whole process of managing the tenant has been so much better than the previous agent. I would have no hesitation in recommending Burns to prospective Landlords” “The service we have received from Burns has been excellent. They are very professional and knowledgeable in the Lettings market and the local area. They have achieved for us a rental return that has increased our projected yield. We were thrilled when Aimee and her team were able to line up prospective tenants before we had completed on the purchase of our property which gave us plenty of reassurance as investors. What we really appreciate is how well they have looked after us from the beginning, and how helpful they are with their advice not only with the property that they currently manage for us but also with their expertise to assess potential properties for our expanding portfolio”

DIARY OF A LETTING AGENT Sharon Canning Move on Rentals Anybody who works within the lettings industry will say, no two days are the same and this is so true. However, 2015 has been one changeable and challenging year. We have had all the politics between Labour and Conservatives on what might happen in the private rented sector, we have had the Deregulation Bill as well as new legislations coming out all the time. Firstly, I would like to clarify a couple of points on my recent articles. 25% of £200 is £50 and not £25 as printed, how many of you noticed that one? I would like to say I was testing you, however, it was a genuine misprint. The other is to clarify the Deregulation Bill with regards to deposits. The 90 day amnesty which ends on the 23rd June 2015 is for landlords who took deposits prior to April 2007 and have not protected the deposit yet. So, what is hot off the press this month? Overseas landlords (non-residents) from April 2015 will pay capital gains tax on the sale of their UK property. Up until now the UK tax loophole allowed overseas investors and British Expats to avoid Capital Gains Tax (CGT) on the sale of residential property, this is now closed. The new rule, which came into effect on April 6, 2015, will particularly affect British Expats and non—UK residents with UK property, especially those with buy-to-let agreements which generate an income.

Mobile Cleaning COMMERCIAL & DOMESTIC

Mobile Car Wash & Valeting Carpet & Upholstery Kitchens & Ovens Disinfectant Steam Cleaning Windows & Glass Office Cleaning Pressure Jet Wash We specialise in cleaning all manner of vehicles, commercial and residential buildings, getting them up to standard for moving, viewing house and just clean living.

This new rule will mean that the sale of a UK property, which currently attracts no UK capital gains tax, could incur a UK capital gains tax bill in the region of 28% on any gains made after April6th 2015, depending on your personal circumstances. It may be advisable to have a valuation on your property now. The other big news is David Cameron casually announced the introduction of mandatory licensing. This is somewhat of a bombshell as there was no indication in the Conservatives manifesto of this. Mr Cameron said the following during his speech on immigration; “We’ll also crack down on the unscrupulous landlords who cram houses full of illegal migrants, by introducing a new mandatory licensing regime. And, a bit like ending jobs when visas expire, we’ll consult on cancelling tenancies automatically at the same point. “It’s not just through housing and jobs; we can track down illegal migrants through the banking system too.” More details will be given in the upcoming Queens speech, which no doubt I will dissect!

TALKING BUSINESS

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

Betsy Paint Mate / Grand Designs Emma & Steeve A local, Ringwood based couple have invented a painting aid that offers safer and easier decorating. Introducing the Betsy Paint Mate to the country, launching it at Grand Designs Live at Excel, London only last week. Steeve and Emma spent 9 days exhibiting, the “Betsy Paint Mate and it sold extremely well with fantastic feed back from everyone who bought one and from those we spoke to”. With the opportunity to meet Kevin McCloud, George Clarke, Jo Hamilton and Dom Littlewood, the Betsy Paint Mate received great praise and admiration for its unique design. As a new product to the market, Emma and Steeve have been delighted with its acceptance, telling me “it’s taken off better than we could have ever imagined” Great success seems to be on the horizon as the couple are in contact with large super stores, smaller builders merchants both locally and nation wide, along with T.V decorating stars. They look forward to catching up with them over the next few months with to reap their feedback. From an accident of fait, Steeve and Emma invented the Betsy Paint Mate, which could possibly save a decorator from a serious injury or even from a fatality. The Grand Designs show was a pleasure for the duo to be apart of and attracts people from all over the country, with all the top stars involved in renovation and building shows. What was a rather unusual twist in the event of selling, was that it wasn’t just

decorators buying it. Betsy Paint Mate received an array of buyers that bought it; one for filling with dog treats to train their dog, a beautician got one to put her make-up brushes in, a roofer bought one for putting his nails in, along with a fisherman who wanted it for his fish bait whilst fishing. The uses are endless! With a TV playing a short film on the Betsy stand, the customers stood and watched how easy the Betsy Paint Mate is to use, how safe you are whilst up a ladder and how simple it is to decorate even at lower levels. To capture the attention of those passing Emma and Steeve asked National trampolinist Nathan Bailey, Gold medal winner of 2012 to come and support them. Emma informs me “he brought in the crowds with many wanting a picture or autograph with him”. With the inclusion of live demonstrations, the Betsy team ware able to create a unique stand that worked successfully. There are plans to expand the Betsy range, with a couple of decorating aids in the pipeline that are still evolving, but Emma tells, “Once they are ready, you will be the first to know”. Looking to launch them in mid 2016. The dream is to build a quality range of decorating equipment for outlets to sell and now possibly even further a field for alternative uses.

Emma goes onto tell me that she has recently been nominated for the Venus Awards and is very excited to have the opportunity in sharing the history of how the Betsy Paint Mate has evolved and of future plans with fellow nominees and judges. I’m sure it goes without saying that we all wish her luck in this adventure.

KITCHEN TRENDS

If you have an old ceramic or solid plate hob in your kitchen, you may not be aware of the cooking revolution that is happening. Induction hobs have been around for a while now, but recently have become really affordable. Induction hobs work by generating a magnetic field that causes the saucepan to get hob rather than the glass top itself. This gives a great number of benefits over the older types of cook top. Firstly, spills don’t get burnt on like on ceramic and solid plate hobs requiring razor blades and half a bottle of Cif to remove. Secondly, they heat up quickly, faster than

the average gas or halogen hob and three times faster than ceramic, plus they are as responsive as gas enabling you to stop a pan from boiling over without having to take it off the hob. Thirdly, they are very efficient as they sense the pan on the hob, only switching on when one is present and saving energy when it is removed.

All Neff induction hobs come with a free set of pans worth £120

So, what is involved in updating your hob? There are hobs for all situations. Solid plate hobs often connect to a 13 amp socket making a ceramic hob replacement difficult, but there are a range of new “intelligent” induction hobs that can manage their power and work from a 13 amp socket with next to no discernable drop in performance. Neff currently have a promotion that even gives you a free set of induction pans with every intelligent hob. Ah! So you need special pans? Well yes and no. Most pans are compatible, but the exceptions are aluminium, copper, ceramic and glass. An easy check is to see if a magnet sticks to the base; if it does it will be compatible! So what else has changed in the kitchen that’s worthy of a mention? Adrian Fry from George Fry, Bournemouth’s main Euronics centre, thinks that Neff have upped the game with their range of Slide and Hide ovens. “These very desirable ovens are really designed with the cook in mind,” he says, “the door simply folds away when opened allowing easy access to the food enabling you to see what you are doing more easily and safely, ideal in a smaller kitchen or where space is limited. Their recent appearance in The Great British Bake Off on the BBC as the oven chosen for the contestants, confirmed that Neff was a well trusted and reliable cooking brand and stirred up a lost of interest in this unique design.”

Touch control gives accurate temperature adjustment and an easy to clean surface

Neff hobs are available in sizes

The elegant door folds

from 60cm to 90cm in width

down and slides away.

If you are interested in updating your hob or oven, contact Adrian at George Fry, who can arrange the complete job including disposal of the old appliance, and have a wide range of appliances to choose from. Prices for induction hobs start from under £270 and ovens from under £200.

THE ONLY WAY FOR YOUR DRIVEWAY Colourstone use resin bound & bonded screed systems that offer Driveways longevity, strength & durability. Resins have evolved dramatically over the past 10 years, now one of the fastest growing businesses, having evolved to be durable, hardwearing, long lasting and UV stable. We now use Alaphatic Polymer Resins which are stable to UV light (sunlight), whereas the only resins previously available were Epoxy resins which are very very strong and ideal for interior use (& still are used for this) but are not suitable for exterior use due to their inability to tolerate sunlight.

Simon and his team hand trowel all resin Colourbound Screeds and can lay up to 400m2 per day with no day joints. Undertaking any size project and backed with a 10 year guarantee, no job is too small, undergoing work in any requested area.

Some companies still use Epoxy resins or inferior resins that are not suitable for the purpose intended, resulting in a poor finish that just will not last.

This makes it modern, stylish & bespoke, yet planning permissible & quick to design & lay. It has also been tested to withstand extreme high & low temperatures & does not “pot hole” like tarmac following copious amounts of rain, making it highly suitable for our great British weather!

Our Pu resins are specially formulated to a high standard to guarantee durability & strength required - the resins can also be tailored for specific uses & requirements. (Technical data on our resins available on request) Simon Britton, MD has over 25 years experience in Resin flooring screeds & has undertaken many large projects both domestic & commercial. These include anti skid ColourBonded system on roads (all resins HAPAS approved), anti slip coatings & self levelling compounds for warehouses & Industrial areas as well as large country house projects and private residences throughout the UK & Europe, & recently a large project for a Russian Client in Moscow. As a family run business, based in Christchurch, Colourstone is the longest established “original” local Resin Driveway Company. Carving themselves a reputation for reliability, punctuality, conscientiousness, and pride of work, Simon remains a hand’s on director. Always on site to oversee jobs run smoothly, Simon and the team are very proud of their upstanding reputation and endeavor to maintain it.

Due to its porous nature, ColourBound Screed complies to SUDS (Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems) planning compliance when used in conjunction with porous Tarmac substrate.

Low maintenance and a quick lay time, Colourbound is suitable for foot traffic use within 8-12hrs and 2448hrs for vehicular traffic.

Simon Britton, Managing Director

Recipes of colour that last Suitable for modern, traditional and contemporary looks, Colourstone have the ability to create a bespoke look for almost any area. A versatile product it can act as a great alternative for driveway surfaces, or instead of block paving, tarmac or concrete. With its creative designs, it is quickly becoming the product everyone wants. The design team can help with bespoke designs including patterns, logos, borders & lighting to create that individual look - (i.e. Bentley or Porche logo in your garage floor or your company logo). Interior quartz & beautiful marble stones are also available for interior stone ColourCarpet - giving a seamless, non slip extremely beautiful, glamorous look in neutral tones of marble or any British Standard colour quartz. This interior flooring provides perfect finish for swimming pool & spa surrounds, as the screed itself is porous therefore allowing the perfect drainage solution.

SIMON’s introduction into the floor screeding business began in 1993 when he joined epoxy products ltd. He completed many projects involving large industrial floor coatings & demarcations, mortar screeds, heavyduty screeds & non-slip coatings. It was at Epoxy Products that he was first introduced to the Resin Bound Screed System, which he now specialises in. Simon is based in the South of UK but covers from Kent to Cornwall on a regular basis for commercial companies & civil engineers though covers areas throughout the UK & Europe. Simon is very much “hands on” & prides himself in always ensuring a customers peace of mind & that a job runs with as little disruption as possible.

RECYCLING NEVER LOOKED SO GOOD At Reformed Plastics all of our products are made from 100% recycled plastic. We manufacture products ourselves and then sell direct to the Domestic and Commercial sector. Due to ever increasing importance to recycle & protect the environment, our products are made from 100% recycled plastic. The plastic used is recycled in the UK and is the perfect alternative to wood. Our aims are to help rebuild the environment by utilizing a commodity, which people would otherwise just throw away, and so turn what to some would be rubbish into a valuable product for everybody. Our products have many practical & very useful properties & has an infinite range of different uses, some of which being are as decking, fencing, outdoor furniture,

planters,

boardwalks,

landscaping,

bollards, signage & construction etc. The list of possibilities is endless and the long-term advantages it has over traditional materials are staggering! It’s a great investment, as it never needs to be replaced due to its high strength and durability, therefore it quickly pays for itself in the long run. In short, it’s worry free! We recycle plastic and then manufacture goods from it, we produce recycled plastic furniture for use in gardens and patios and we retail recycled plastic products such as recycled plastic fencing and recycled plastic decking. The concept of Reformed Plastics was born over 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 158

TALKING BUSINESS

TALKING BUSINESS House talks business with Rosie Wallace from Marsham Court Hotel

Marsham Court Hotel

Marsham Court Hotel goes back to the future One of the first, traditional seaside hotels in Bournemouth has gone back to its roots, reverting to the name it was given more than a century ago. Around 150 guests, local hoteliers and local business people gathered to celebrate the official rebranding of the Marsham Court Hotel in Russell-Cotes Road. Unveiling the hotel’s ‘new’ name and contemporary wave design logo, director Rosie Wallace, described the event as: “a significant day in the hotel’s fascinating history.” The Marsham Court Hotel opened for business in 1913, occupying one of two, neighbouring houses on the East Cliff. A Mr and Mrs Marsh – who had a ‘ham’ curing business - originally owned the building and supposedly linked the two words, forming Marsham. By 1923, demand for the hotel’s 13 rooms had become so great that the neighbouring house was bought and linked to provide 41 rooms. Old photographs show uniformed drivers standing patiently beside gleaming automobiles in the Marsham Court’s garage, while their wealthy employers took tea or danced in the Terrace Ballroom. In 1937, the hotel was managed by Quakers and had no liquor licence. And during the war years it was taken over by the US Red Cross and used as a convalescent home for injured soldiers.

Rosie Wallace’s mother, Jennie Deavin bought the hotel in 1987 and found it tired, worn and needing complete refurbishment. She explained: “To raise the £1.5million we needed to refurbish we joined the Days Hotel group and took on their name. Days enabled us to completely transform our 87 bedrooms, lobby, bar and conferencing facilities and gave us new skills and procedures we will continue to use; however our guests and the local community still thought of us as the Marsham Court Hotel. So for the family, the staff and many of our loyal guests, today is a very special day.” Paul Callaghan brought the 120 members of London’s Mayfair masonic lodge to the Marsham Court Hotel for the first time 26 years ago. The group has returned for its annual break every year since. A guest at the party he said: “We have seen a lot of changes to the hotel over the years, but what has always stayed the same is the welcome and excellent service. We wish Rosie and her team many more years of success.” The Marsham Court Hotel caters for families enjoying breaks by the sea, conference delegates from across the country, wedding parties and a range of clubs and societies. Rosie Wallace added: “People who used to visit us with their children are now returning with their grandchildren

for the same, traditional seaside welcome.” “But we are as much about the future as the past.” “In 2014 we became the UK’s first hotel to win a Gold Approved Family Friendly award and are now focusing on offering even more family holidays, new health and educational breaks and on expanding our thriving conference business.” During the party Jennie Deavin was presented with honorary membership to Bournemouth Accommodation and Hotel Association (BAHA), by its chairman Andy Woodland, who paid tribute to her work in the local hospitality industry.

FIRST GARDEN IMPRESSIONS COUNT So, you want to sell your house? Then there’s two things you should know: summer is the best time to do it, and the deciding factor may be your garden. Some 66% of prospective buyers in Britain say the garden is vital to their decision on whether or not to buy a house, according to a survey of 2,000 people by online trade recommendation service Rated People, while estate agents advise that a garden can increase a property’s price tag by up to 20%. So it’s time to hide the dustbins, ditch the rubbish, dig out the weeds and make some colourful additions to your front garden to make it a welcoming haven. If you park your car in the front garden, don’t try to enhance the area with fiddly little plants which may flop over the parking space and end up being squashed. Instead, group a few plants strategically taking account of the movement of cars - to create a bold and practical effect.

162

Standard potted trees are often a way to make a front entrance look grander, so if you’re after a really quick fix, look in your local garden centre for

standard bay or olive trees in pots, to frame your front door. Alternatively, go for box topiary. Hide eyesores with quick-growing evergreen climbers such as the cultivars of the honeysuckle Lonicera japonica, and plant other climbers such as clematis or roses to adorn bare walls. Obviously, if you’re in a rush to sell, you’re not going to have time to plant a hedge to block out pollution and road noise, but you can make smaller effective improvements with some quick planting. Consider putting up a framework of trellis to screen your dustbins and plant fast-growing climbers around it, even if it’s just some variegated ivy. If you have harsh concrete steps in the front garden, soften it by lining the path with evergreen plants in pots, and place container plants around the front door to make the entrance look welcoming and cared for. Bear

in mind that you may not sell your house immediately, so permanent plantings which will provide interest in the cooler months may be a better bet. Location Location Location’s Phil Spencer, who’s a Rated People ambassador, advises home-owners to stay low-maintenance. “Of course, everybody loves the idea of having a house with a fantastic garden, but all too often, don’t relish the reality behind maintaining it. It’s a sensible plan to create a garden that looks fantastic, but requires minimum effort from its current owner or future owner. “Shrubs and conifers add stature and texture, but can virtually be left to their own devices once you’ve prepared the soil. “Plants like chrysanthemum, gardenia or jasmine can retain moisture longer and therefore require less watering.” No-fuss planting for those with little time to maintain their front garden might include euphorbias and

Don’t forget personality - people can always tell the difference between a house and a home...


OUTDOOR LIVING

WHAT TO DO THIS WEEK • Sow late-flowering annuals, herbs and vegetables including early carrots, runner beans and parsnips. • Continue to harden off summer bedding plants, but if you live in a cold area, don’t plant them out for a few more weeks. • Stake and support stems of herbaceous perennials including delphiniums and peonies. • Continue to water trees, shrubs and border plants that you have planted this spring. • Regularly spike over border soil with a fork to relieve compaction and remove weeds. • Give acid-loving plants such as rhododendrons, azaleas and pieris a feed with a fertiliser formulated for them, to prevent leaves turning yellow.

phormiums for strong structure in a sunny garden, while variegated ivy and hostas in pots are ideal plantings for a shady area around a front door. Lighting also plays a part. If you have one tree in your front garden, place some strategic uplighters underneath it to make it more attractive at night. While solar lights are not much use for leading the way up a path, you can achieve a happy medium by fixing attractive lights of a higher wattage on to low walls.

GOOD ENOUGH TO EAT - Sowing root veg for winter It’s not even summer yet but I’m already thinking of winter, as root veg which can be harvested in the cooler months need to be sown now. Carrots, parsnip and swede as well as turnips and beetroot can now be sown directly into the ground in rows around 30cm apart. Carrots, swede and turnip need to be sown thinly, while sow two parsnip seeds at 15cm intervals in ground that is free of stones - or you may get split roots. By Hannah Stephenson

Spencer adds: “Don’t forget personality - people can always tell the difference between a house and a home and it works the same way with a garden. Don’t be afraid to add a bit of personality to your decorations and outdoor accessories. Why not try deploying some inventive plant pots or wall decorations to make your garden a bit more interesting and welcoming?” With increasing worries about front gardens being overpaved, leading to drainage and other problems, it’s worth considering the design of your front space. Use paving materials that allow water to seep through such as brick pavers, gravel, matrix pavers or grass reinforcement. Utilise walls and fences with climbers such as clematis, jasmine or ivy. Include shrubs and small trees, such as lavender or camellia, in ‘dead space’. With the front garden creating a great first impression, your home may soon have the ‘Sold’ sign outside it. BEST OF THE BUNCH - Tulip Last year I decided I didn’t have anything like enough tulips in my garden and now I am reaping the rewards of my late autumn plantings, both in pots and in the borders. Sizzling orange triumphs are dazzling in patio pots, almost black Tulipa ‘Queen of Night’ are coming up among burnt orange and vibrant yellow wallflowers and cool cream tulips are providing an element of calm in my semishaded front garden. There really is a tulip for every situation, whether you prefer the showy parrot varieties, the classic majestic reds and yellows or the intricate species types which look amazing in rockeries. Tulips should be planted in late autumn or early winter, three to four times the depth of the bulb, a few centimetres apart, in full sun and avoid wet conditions. On heavy soil add grit.

• Spread a layer of well-rotted compost around perennials. • Finish planting out sweet peas and tie in new growth. • Sprinkle the base of all roses with a generous handful of rose fertiliser. • Pinch out tips of broad bean stems to remove the soft growth which blackfly love.

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

ROAD TEST: ROAD TEST: TOYOTA LANDCRUISER V8 VAUXHALL CORSA SRI

164

Small agile hot hatches provide a lot of fun and have a cool image, yet can still be practical for day to day motoring, writes NICK FLETCHER. A fine example is the Vauxhall C orsa SRi, which has grippy responsive handling for the sporty-minded driver, yet offers decent interior space, fold-down seats and good fuel economy to allow it to also be a functional commuting or family car. Corsa prices start at just under £10,000, and the flagship models top £16,000. The entry level engine is a 1.2 petrol, and there is also a turbo-charged 1.4 petrol, a 1.3 diesel and a surprising good 1.0 litre three-cylinder turbo petrol available with 89 or 114 hp. The 89 hp version was the one fitted in my recent test car, a three-door SRi priced at £13,605. Despite its small size, this engine is a little gem - smooth, refined and flexible. Top speed is 112 mph and while the 0-60 mph time is 11.9 seconds, the car feels far quicker due to its light weight and nimble handling. Fuel economy is very good at 65.7 mpg combined. Standard kit on this model includes fuel-saving Start-Stop, alloy wheels, front fog lamps, traction and stability controls, power windows, remote locking touch screen, Bluetooth and sports seats. There is plenty of leg and headroom for even rear occupants though the three-door version does have tight access to the rear seats. Boot space is reasonable and mid-range spec models upwards have fold down rear seats to increase load versatility. Visual cachet and keen pricing help give the Corsa an edge in this competitive sector, and the latest generation SRi models uphold Vauxhall’s reputation for producing fun hot hatches.

Few cars have enough prestige to arrive at Buckingham Palace, are tough enough to cross the Sahara desert, yet still versatile enough to take the kids to school or go to the supermarket, writes NICK FLETCHER. The Toyota Land Cruiser V8 ticks all those boxes, and many more. Often seen on TV news footage being used in war zones, this remarkable vehicle is equally at home in leafy suburbs and in my view is the best true all-rounder on the market. Only one version of the V8 model is available, priced at £65,220. Make no mistake, the Land Cruiser is big. It towers over a Range Rover and weighs 2.7 tons. Yet is has a sports car-ish 0-60mph time of just 8.9 seconds, and returns an average 30mpg. At the heart of the car is an outstanding 4.5 litre V8 turbo diesel engine with 268 hp, which is smooth, quiet and has flexible power delivery. It is mated to a slick 6-speed auto transmission with full time 4WD.

Formidable off-road – I have driven one across a river with the water-level up to the windscreen – the Land Cruiser has go-anywhere capability. Yet on the tarmac, it is easy to handle, with wellmannered responses, and excellent ride comfort. It corners well with minimal pitch and roll for this type of vehicle, and has as much ambiance, comfort and equipment as most luxury saloons. In fact, build quality, fit and finish is so good that in some countries it carries the Lexus badge. Inside, there is a premium look and there is plenty of room for seven occupants. Standard equipment is extensive and includes 14 airbags, four-zone climate control, keyless entry, cruise control, leather upholstery, 8-inch touchscreen, sat-nav, auto lights and wipers, mini-refrigerator, voice-command, Bluetooth. Google Search, roof rails, side steps, 20-inch alloys, four wheels height control and variable suspension. And that’s just the short-list!

ALFA ROMEO 4C SPIDER A stunning convertible version of Alfa Romeo’s 4C sports car is now available to order, priced from £59,500. Like its Coupé sibling, the new Alfa Romeo 4C Spider is built around an ultra-lightweight carbon fibre monocoque with minimal structural enhancements required in the transition from Coupé to Spider. The main developments include a new aluminium rollover structure, which is nestled underneath a black “halo”; a specially-developed carbon fibre windscreen frame and an engine compartment cross-member made from high-strength steel. The Coupé’s fastback rear end is replaced by classic and distinctive Spider buttresses and a new engine cover which also features three heat extractors and a subtle rear spoiler. There are significant changes to the front, too, with new, covered, projector-style xenon headlamps as standard on the Spider (and optional on the Coupé). Special attention has been paid to the aerodynamic characteristics of the Spider to ensure minimal wind and noise intrusion when the cloth roof is removed and stowed away, and for those owners who want to use their Spider all year round, a carbon fibre hardtop will be available as an optional accessory at a later date.

A new carbon-fibre air intake system, engineered to provide additional transmission cooling for track-focussed drivers, also joins the options list, while a number of allnew wheel designs debut on the 4C Spider too. Inside, a new Alpine head unit and standard Alfa Hi Fi sound system offer improved audio quality, usability and device connectivity. Powered by the same, all-aluminium, 240hp engine as the Coupé, performance is on a par with the hardtop model with a top speed of 160 MPH and a 0-to-60 MPH time of less than 4.5 seconds.

MASERATI SALES RECORD ROAD TEST: VOLVO V40 CROSS COUNTRY When a car company names a model ‘Cross Country’ you might conclude it would be a hefty off-roader but the Volvo V40 Cross Country is something quite different, writes NICK FLETCHER. It is a smart, stylish estate car with great ride quality and sporty performance, so it is ideal for driving... cross country! V40 Cross Country prices start at £23,320 and there are petrol and diesel choices, but it is the D4 2.0 litre diesel unit which has attracted most praise. Offering 190 hp, this smooth responsive engine delivers sports car performance – 0-60 mph just 8.2 seconds and top speed 130 mph. Yet it is exceptionally economical, giving 65.7 mpg combined. The V40 also handles well, with light intuitive steering and a supple ride quality even if fitted with sports suspension. Body roll is minimal even on tight corners

and the overall poise of the car is very reassuring – you always feel fully in control. The cabin is well designed for simplicity of use, yet with a nicely understated premium look. Trim materials are of good durable quality, and the seating I found exceptionally comfortable. My test model was the upper-range Cross Country Lux Nav, with the D4 engine, and priced at £28,770. Standard kit includes alloy wheels, sat nav, climate and cruise control, four power windows, Bluetooth, and leather upholstery. Cross Country models also have slightly higher ground clearance and more chunky bumpers which help give the car a more eye-catching appearance. The boot is a good size and has a clever adjustable and dividable floor system which can also provide a completely flat load area. Top marks for versatility!

Maserati has set a new sales record in the first quarter of 2015. With 148 new cars registered in April, UK sales reaches a total of 523 vehicles for the year so far, an increase of 65% compared to the same period of the previous year. All the main European markets (United Kingdom, Italy, Germany, France, Spain, Switzerland and Benelux) recorded positive results during April, with an average increase of about 20% over the same month in 2014.The Quattroporte flagship and the Ghibli executive saloon both recorded higher sales. The Ghibli Diesel also received a boost, being named “best company car in Germany”, both in direct competition with German cars and in the imported car category. This rating was awarded by a sample of 270 German fleet managers.

PORSCHE 911 CARRERA BLACK EDITION Porsche has created a special series of the 911 Carrera: the Black Edition. Standard equipment includes distinctive 20-inch diameter alloy wheels, automatically dimming rearview mirrors, rain sensing windscreen wipers, cruise control and Sport Design steering wheel. It is priced from £75,074. It has a rear-mounted, flat-six cylinder 3.4-litre power plant developing 350 hp. It is offered as coupé and convertible versions, and with rear-wheel drive or Porsche Traction Management all-wheel drive. The special model rides on eye-catching 20-inch diameter ‘911 Turbo’ style alloy wheels and further graphic differentiation is provided by LED headlights including the Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus. The black interior includes heated seats - with the Porsche crest embossed on the head restraints - and a standard Bose Surround Sound System. In addition, there is a mobile telephone module, front and rear Park Assist, and which includes a reversing camera. Customers will also be able to explore the potential of their new car by participating in a complimentary course at the Porsche Experience Centre, Silverstone.

FOOD & DRINK

‘IF YOU’RE PASSIONATE, YOU’LL SUCCEED’ If you’re giving your home a clear-out this spring, Natasha Corrett wants you to spare a thought for your kitchen. “We spring clean our wardrobes and chuck out all the old clothes we don’t want to wear any more,” says the chef and food blogger. “I do a bit of a cull in my kitchen and find things I don’t really need. The amount of times I’ve gone through my drawers and found measuring spoons broken in half, blunt knives...” The author of the Honestly Healthy blog and cookbooks, offering tips and recipes for healthconscious foodies, Corrett knows a thing or two about kitchens. In fact, she’s currently helping her mum, celebrity interior designer and former Dragon’s Den investor Kelly Hoppen, to design the functionality of her new one.

The pair work out of the same office in London, but Corrett insists it isn’t too close for comfort. “I’m always out and about, recipe-developing or filming, so it’s maybe once every two weeks that we’ll have lunch together,” she says. “It’s quite nice to have each other and have a cuddle if we’re feeling stressed, stuff like that.” Busy Corrett - an advocate of the alkaline diet, which involves eating mainly alkaline foods for the optimum pH balance - has also teamed up with Currys PC World to create new recipes based on some of the most popular foods and kitchen appliances on social media (with papaya, roasted aubergine and pomegranates getting people talking and sharing snaps).

Hoppen has been “an amazing mentor” to the chef, whose father is restaurateur Graham Corrett.

She confesses to the occasional evening “sitting in front of the TV and watching EastEnders”, tucking into her “guilty pleasure - a proper good oldfashioned pizza”.

“My parents both started their businesses when they were 16. They’ve both worked very hard and instilled that in me,” says the 31-year-old, who spent summer holidays working in her dad’s restaurants.

“My whole philosophy is my 70-30 rule. So 70% of the time, you follow the alkaline way, 30% of the time you do whatever you want, whether it be eating meat, having a chocolate brownie, or a glass of wine or a cocktail,” she adds.

“My mum said to me, ‘As long as you’re passionate about what you do, you’ll succeed, because that’s what’s going to get you through those late nights and early mornings and working on the weekend’, and she was right. You never want to say your mum’s right, but she was!”

With 120,000 Instagram followers and 26,000 on Twitter, Corrett’s approach to healthy eating has been a hit. As well as the health factor, her recipes are often very simple too (as you will see below), so there really is no excuse!

As long as you’re passionate about what you do, you’ll succeed... She loves nothing more than getting messages from fans online who have tried out her methods. “When you’re at home working away creating things, you can forget that there’s a whole world out there about to try these recipes,” she says. “When people take photos and upload them, and tell you how easy it was and how delicious they were, it really makes it worthwhile.” By Jeananne Craig

REVIEWED

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

THE JETTY 95 Mudeford, Christchurch, Dorset BH23 3NT Princess of the sea’s, as I plucked a fork to comb my hair I was no longer Lucy but Ariel. Dining in the finest seafood restaurant along the south coast the Jetty will take you on a culinary adventure through colourful reefs and shallow rock pools. An architectural masterpiece of glass and wood, crafting an emporium from which to spectate out to sea, the Jetty sits comfortably if a little angular within its surroundings. Pastel coloured huts huddled along the seashore and sailing boats bobbing in the wind, the idyllic picture. Even on a clouded day the view still entices you, fancy a swim? Brrr. Currently nominated for top 10 fish restaurant in the UK and holding the prize for the 3rd best sustainable restaurant in the UK, the Jetty prides itself on locality and seasonality, endeavoring to source food locally and sustainably. With the waters edge almost lapping at the front door, produce is knocking on the door, albeit unaware of their fate. Bustling with diners diving into a spectacular lunch, a busy restaurant speaks for itself. I could feel the smile instantaneously spread across my face. Comfortably sat, my fingers almost dipping into the pastel view, only the floor to ceiling glass window separated us. Restaurant manager AJ, son to King of the Jetty Alex Aitkens, enthused by the successes of the business, told us of the mentioned Jetty achievements and their hunger for a win in their nomination. Passionate about the produce and the ethos that the Jetty abide by he made his recommendations for todays produce on offer. Followed by the main man himself Alex, it was a pleasure to see father and son so in tune and charismatic about the produce and craftsmanship that goes into plating. To tempt you whilst browsing the menu we delighted on some Jetty bites. Four teasers with matching partner, perfectly aligned on the plate, each simplistic and not too fussed. Octopus gently cooked in a little butter and garlic, what I would describe as fishy scotch eggs, taramasalata and prawns. Not usually bowled over by scotch eggs this was in fact my favourite nibble. Just a little hot, the middle almost about to yolk, the fishy exterior made the Scotch egg on the whole more creamy and light. They were a true treasure.

Opting to choose offerings from the sea for both my starter and main, a white wine was surely a must. Picking a glass of Chablis poignant in flavor and alcohol it almost knocked me sideways on just a few sips. A few swigs away from the floor I was rescued by starters. Feeling a little too happy, I am beginning to wonder if this was intentional, it seems to be a running occurrence at the moment, I love it, I tucked into scallops and belly of pork. Precision on the plate drizzled with a raisin jus the combination of flavours was absolutely exquisite. The belly of pork falling away at my fork married with the soft delicate scallops, it’s making me salivate thinking about it. I think my picking was particularly well if I do say so myself, but the squid with duck and chili sauce did look equally as appetizing. Almost like a pad Thai v stir-fry the squid glistening in its jus, the spices just prick your tongue, but not enough to hinder your taste buds for the rest of your meal. Now feeling a little less embarrassed that I am drunk on maybe four sips. Utterly shameful it pains me to admit it. Especially after our charming waiter enticingly commented “its Friday you should have a large glass” and I accepted, I mopped up every last mouthful of my starter and patiently awaited my main. The restaurant continues to hum with the sound of happy diners enjoying their rather special meal, and I am still baffled by just how busy a Friday lunchtime seating is, I recommend you book ahead. For main I ordered half a lobster dressed in a little garlic oil and accompanied by a light salad. Super fresh, succulent and sweet, this for me is cooking at its best. Visually wowing it takes a great picture. Coral orange with hints of deeper shades on the verge of turning red, the colours dance upon the crisp white plate. A simple salad of peppery rocket,

baby leafs and spring onion, provide a mild kick to take this baby to the next level. Hot of the press was Brixhan ‘Sea Robin’ Gurnard with white beans, olive and chorizo. Told to be a popular dish of the day it did not lack in expectation. Resting upon a sea of entwined samphire and brazen red-coated beans, this is cooking stripped back to its barebones and it’s simply delicious. The Jetty knows how to savour flavour. There are no hidden tricks or a countless assortment of ingredients, the fish is the star of the show, with a few accomplices to set your tongue wagging. Having dipped my toes into the waters edge for starter and main, it was time to return to land for dessert. Having spied my neighbours passion fruit soufflé, which he did notice me gazing upon, “are you peeking at my soufflé?” of course I came clean admitting yes, my mind was made up. A pale cloud of yellow, sprung and dusted with icing it looked wonderful. Not expecting dessert to hit the high notes of this meal, considering the Jetty is a predominantly fish restaurant, I was blown over by how utterly delectable this dessert was. Heaven in a ramekin, the hot passion fruit sauce is fed into the middle of the soufflé, causing the cloud to heighten and wobble as it swells with this beautifully pure and sweet passion fruit jus. Spooning puffs of goodness until I was scrapping the edges, I can’t believe I am saying this, but even after a three course meal I could have eaten another it was that good. Practically licking the sides of the ramekin I looked on at the other desserts pitying them. However I should have been a little less quick to judge as the rhubarb and custard panna cotta caught my eye. Creamy with a slight bounce surrounded by strategically placed rhubarb pieces and rhubarb jelly, you can’t beat rhubarb at this time of year. Seasonal and perfectly balanced, the hit of sourness is quickly soothed. Accompanied by ginger ice cream and a flamboyant twill defying gravity it’s a fantastic pallet cleansing dessert. The Jetty has bemused me with their lunchtime delights and pastel painted haze. As my mermaid’s tail begins to transform back to two legs and my flowing red hair gradually returns to its natural brown I’ve had a fantastic time “under the sea. Darling it’s better, down where it’s wetter, take it from me”.

HEALTH & BEAUTY

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

SMOOTH OPERATOR…

Wrinkles…Part of the ageing process…but do we graciously accept them or fight them until the bitter end? Healthy self-improvement versus a vain attempt to look younger? I am constantly asked by both male and female clients how they can reduce the lines around their eyes – is there a miracle cure? If the first thing you see every time you look in the mirror is those pesky crow’s feet, I’m here to help! As we age, our skin loses moisture and elasticity, making it prone to wrinkles. Beauty Therapists and Dermatologists have many tools for tackling those little lines that mark the passage of time. They include prescription creams, chemical peels, and Botox. But perhaps the best option is to protect your skin just as it is. This article will outline several ways you can prevent wrinkles from forming in the first place. Don’t blame it on your genes. It’s true that some people age more gracefully than others. And while scientists are beginning to gain a deeper understanding of how genetics influence the aging process, they’re also discovering how much your lifestyle choices can affect your genes. Your genes only govern 30% of how you age; the other 70% is up to you. Protect your skin from the sun as you get older, the genes that control inflammation, the production and strength of collagen, and your skin’s ability to retain water begin to behave in a way that encourages the formation of wrinkles. Those changes are caused by mutations. A study found that aged skin that hadn’t been exposed to the sun had about 3,800 genetic mutations, while skin that had been exposed to the sun had around 10,000 mutations in the same genes! So if the risk of skin cancer isn’t enough to get you to wear sunblock and wide-brimmed hats, let vanity persuade you. Women need to be careful while blocking sun rays. Vitamin D comes from the sun and is absorbed through the skin.

CHIC Beauty Salon & Academy of Beauty

Eat, drink, and slather on the antioxidants. When UV rays are absorbed by your skin, they create free radicals, which are volatile molecules. Those free radicals can latch onto your DNA and cause the mutations that cause wrinkles. Antioxidants help your body defend against free radicals. Combat wrinkles by eating foods and drinking beverages that contain antioxidants (pomegranates, acai, blueberries, green tea) and using creams or moisturizers that contain them. Wear sunglasses regularly. Not only will wearing sunglasses protect the delicate skin around your eyes from the sun, but it’ll also help prevent squinting, which directly contributes to wrinkling. Sleep on your back to prevent sleep lines, which can eventually turn into wrinkles. Heavy smokers are almost 5 times more likely to show excessive wrinkling than non-smokers. Smoking can damage collagen, and the squinting and lip pursing that comes with smoking directly create wrinkles over time. Control your facial expressions. More animated expressions mean more creases, and creases eventually become wrinkles. It might be difficult, but try to do away with frowning, eyebrow raising, and squinting. Don’t stop smiling or laughing, however. A genuine smile causes crow’s feet around your eyes. But the power of sincere joy against wrinkles may be stronger than the effects of not smiling... Invest in a good eye cream – Dermalogica’s Age Reversal Eye Complex is my must have wrinkle essential. Reverse multiple signs of aging with

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.
