SAVILLS CYCLE FOR DORSET CANCER CARE FOUNDATION The team at Savills Canford Cliffs have raised more than £2,560 for Dorset Cancer Care Foundation by cycling 874 miles, over three days.

in your area.

SO MANY THINGS TO CELEBRATE

Keith Fensom and the team took it in turns to cycle the equivalent distance from Lands End to John O’Groats on two exercise bikes outside the Canford Cliffs office. Hoping to raise £1,000, the team has been overwhelmed by the support they have received from the community.

Danielle Denison Director of Denisons Estate Agents would like to introduce Laura. “I have known Laura Lewis for many years and I am pleased to welcome her to our Christchurch office. Laura fits in perfectly in our busy town centre office and I am delighted to have her as part of our team.

They even had a few celebrity supporters – football manager Harry Redknapp, actress and impressionist Debra Stephenson, and television presenter Celia Sawyer all stopped for photographs and to show their support.

Laura has come from a local corporate agent and is thrilled to now be working in a successful family run business. She has a fantastic level of experience under her belt and a proven track record, having won regional awards for both top sales negotiator and top lister already within her very promising career.

Joshua Simons and Steve Crawford launched daily deal platform Live Elite (recently branded to Elite Living) in 2011, going head to head on a local level with the mighty Groupon and Living Social.

It is very exciting times at Denisons and we have been celebrating all round as we have also acquired Paul Jacksons estate agents in Lymington. The offices compliment each other and I look forward to a bright and exciting future with both offices.”

Keith Fensom said: “The support we received both online and throughout the week was fantastic and created a real community spirit. We had army soldiers cheering and cars beeping their horns, people throwing money out of their car windows, delivery and dustbin men stopping to give money. Local bakery Oxfords donated and provided cakes to keep everyone’s energy up.” “We would like to say a huge thank you to James Rufus at 180 Degrees gym at Sandbanks Yacht Club who kindly provided the exercise bikes.” The team as so far raised £2,560 for the Dorset Cancer Care Foundation with donations still coming in. To donate, visit www.justgiving.com/ SavillsCanfordCliffs.

The new platform, Elite Black, is a different model, whereby users are invited to subscribe to an annual membership, in turn receiving a personalised black card which can be used to benefit from exclusive privileges and prices at 100’s of highly regarded local businesses.

Membership is priced at £59 per year. Joshua Simons comments: “We are very excited to have recently launched Elite Black, with 3,000 subscriptions within the first 2 weeks of going live. We are delighted to be working alongside Saxe Coburg and Sandown Mercedes-Benz as key sponsors, two established local businesses that we have worked alongside for a few years now.”

The team has recently expanded with new Property Consultant Anne-Marie Lau and Trainee Property Consultant Hayley Collins. Branch Manager Aimee says “We’re absolutely delighted with our new look. We feel that it truly represents the impeccable service we offer our clients. We’re not just different, but better.”

Steve Crawford comments: “Elite Living will remain in operation, focusing on quick fire campaigns for local businesses to drive footfall, as well as a selection of the hottest products on the market at enviable prices”.

With a stunning new website, office revamp and new additions to the team Burns Estates are here for all your property needs. Please contact Aimee for more information now on 01202 55 33 35 or email info@burnsestates.co.uk

NEW LOOK FOR BURNS


THREE SOUTHAMPTON BUSINESSWOMEN TAKE BLAKE & BLAKE BY STORM! Successful letting and property management agents, Harcourts in Southampton, have recently expanded and taken over Blake & Blake in Bournemouth. Owned by three businesswomen, the company has been going from strength to strength since its initial launch in 1981. Always aiming to uphold traditional values while still providing a personal service. The companies have a firm base of experienced and committed staff and have retained many of their original investor clients while also gathering a growing number of modern buy-to-let landlords. Linda Long, Senior Partner, says “We were waiting for the right opportunity to come along and are very excited with our new venture. We already have many clients with properties in The New Forest and can now take our reputation and expertise into Dorset.” The new branch, now called Blakes, retains its existing staff to maintain continuity for landlords and vendors and is currently open for business, although undergoing a major facelift. A formal launch of Blakes is planned for 26th June where everyone is invited, so why not pop in and help us celebrate our formal opening!

FLEXIBLE WORKING AND THE LURE OF WATERSIDE LIVING SEES HOUSE PRICES UP BY A THIRD IN SEASIDE TOWNS As latest figures from Halifax reveal average house prices in the UK’s seaside towns have increased by a third over the past decade, Michael Riley, Managing Director of Capital and Coastal, says it is unsurprising that the most expensive seaside towns are in the South of England. He says the climate, accessibility, lower cost of living (versus London) and work flexibility have improved attractiveness and increased demand. Sandbanks has being reported as the second most expensive seaside town with an average property price of £614,726, second only to Salcombe in Devon. Mr Riley comments “The substantial increase in value of coastal properties over the last 10 years demonstrates the lure of the sea and how much people aspire to live by water. The growth of the internet era has borne a generation of people who have much greater flexibly through working remotely, either full time or part time, and therefore do not need to be within the

constraints of city life. In our experience, many people who buy in affluent coastal areas like Mudeford, Sandbanks or Lymington have chosen to re-mortgage their main home due to the favourable rates available at the moment, in order to make that purchase by the sea. Some of the more high value properties are often purchased by buyers who have had some kind of windfall, usually through the sale of a company. We can’t build any more coastline which means there is greater demand for existing properties that are available. Coastal property prices have also been fuelled by substantial increases in the Home Counties. People realising the value in their homes and opting to cash in their two bedroom flat in Peckham, for example, for a four bedroom home in Southborne, where they can benefit from more open space, live by the sea and yet be within close proximity to London. Arguably the south coast is home to some of the sunniest towns in the UK and that in itself is one of the greatest attractions to living in this beautiful part of the country.”

DIVERSE ABILITIES TO SET UP SHOP IN SOVEREIGN SHOPPING CENTRE Diverse Abilities, the only charity in Dorset that supports children and adults with profound physical and learning disabilities, and their families, will be opening a temporary shop in the Sovereign Shopping Centre, in Boscombe, during June and July from 10am – 4pm Monday to Friday. The local community are being invited to come along, meet the Diverse Abilities team, find out how the charity supports over 600 children and adults and also consider how they may like to get involved through volunteering, events, making a donation or even starting a rewarding career. The Diverse Abilities’ shop will be located in unit 4 – opposite Costa Coffee - from 1 June until 31 July. For further information regarding the charity’s shop please contact Diverse Abilities on 01202 718266 or visit www.diverseabilities.org.uk.

REPUTATION OF BOURNEMOUTH-BASED SWAIN & RANDS GOES GLOBAL! After launching just 4 years ago, Bournemouth based window & conservatory company Swain & Rands is already building a reputation for high quality products and service. That reputation has now reached across the Atlantic! Mark Swain & Darren Rands established their home improvement company aiming to offer honest pricing alongside quality products and expert tradesmanship. However, even they were surprised when Mr Pearson, a New York based Chief Executive of a large Life Insurance Company, called to arrange a quote to replace his parents’ windows. When Darren visited the home of Mr & Mrs Pearson, he found that

they only needed a few replacement glass sealed units as most of their doors and windows were in good condition. Darren said “I arrived at the Pearson’s home expecting to quote for a large job, as they had been told by another local firm that all of their windows and doors needed replacing. Upon inspection, I realised that someone had seen an opportunity to exploit Mr & Mrs Pearson as they in fact only needed a few replacement units.” Mrs Pearson added, “It was such a relief to be told that we didn’t need a large project carried out after all, and to be reassured by Darren that our windows were not all broken, which is what we had been told by the other local companies. The work was completed quickly and

with very little disruption at home. It’s very reassuring to know that in Swain & Rands we have found an honest, reliable firm should we need help with windows and doors in the future.” With 90 years combined experience of the window, doors and conservatory/ extension industry among the management team, Swain & Rands have begun to grow their customer base very quickly. Specialising in UPVC, aluminium and hardwood products, the Swain & Rands team offers a tailored service and free, no obligation quotes, to the people of Dorset & surrounding areas.

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.

TALKING BUSINESS

TALKING BUSINESS House talks business with Martyn Weeks from LAMCO Design

Martyn Weeks LAMCO Design We were very excited to have been invited to the May Design Series at London’s ex-cel, having been recognised as a company setting the bar in the manufacture of high-end wardrobe and lounge systems. The May Design Series is the UK’s most definitive international furniture fair and interior design show. At the show were a mixture of designers and architects, as well as developers and private house builders. All were greatly welcomed onto our stand to view our display pieces and discuss the rest of ours and MisuraEmme furniture range. We have a short video on our website in the new and updated blog section. Please feel free to watch the video to get a flavour of our stand and our brand new products taking off this year with designers and architects. You will see the new concept and our prototype of leather fronted doors. We have named this range “London” as to calibrate it with the May Design Series in London.

The London Wardrobe On the stand we showed a new concept of a leather fronted doors for a wardrobe. This is a first and will certainly be something that we see more of

54

in the future. We called the wardrobe the ‘London’ in collaboration with the May Design Series at the Ex-cel. This was wardrobe was a prototype to test the market at the show, with feedback greatly welcomed by clients viewing the wardrobe for the first time. This wardrobe and the doors proved to be a real hit. This will certainly go into production very soon with a whole set of coloured leathers available.

The May Design Series 2015 was a fantastic show, and a real success. We have been asked by designers, architects and some developers to design and price for some very prestigious developments since the show. If you have any questions about any of our products and what we can offer you, please get in touch. Or better still please visit us at our showroom in Poole.

We carefully selected a combination of wardrobes from the latest MisuraEmme range to show the great breadth of styles available. From Leathers, Lacquers, through to glass, we had all materials on show to display the versatility of the range and our ingenuity in bringing new products to the marketplace. Alongside the wardrobes we displayed the new MisuraEmme Margareth bed in leather, which beautifully compliments the leather doors of the London Wardrobe. Next to the bed were the Hill bedside tables, one with a top in travertine stone, the other in matt lacquer. Both had a solid oak base stained in oak fume. As part of the MisuraEmme Living Collection we showed the Gramercy table and chairs which were a real hit with the designers.

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. They are also able to offer initial architectural assessments within 24 hours, which allows an extremely fast decision making process. With a full pipeline of works and contracts, AJ are a cash rich business, who are able to make quick decisions on land, shortening the timeline of the traditional lengthy sale/planning process. Part of their success has previously hinged on the swift submission of approvable plans and the urgency of their Land acquisition department. Flexible with timescales AJ are able to accommodate to suit the sellers requirements,

Mark Adams and Sebastian Janes formed AJ Developments in December 2010. With over 15 years combined experience within the construction and development space, the business has taken on several facets and has sustained continuous growth over the last 5 years. Fulfilling this void with affordable luxury housing solutions, AJ Developments have forged a stellar reputation for producing the highest quality Houses, combing meticulous detail and innovative spatial ideas with a professional and fun service.

average monthly repayments and buying costs a FTB faces with a three-bedroom property stood at £658 by the end of last year, which calculates to £62 lower than the typical monthly rent on a property of the same type, which itself was £720 for the same period. The gap is widest in the North West of the UK, where FTBs were actually seeing a saving of £109 a month, a substantial 17% less than the cost of renting. Despite current concern that the UK is not building the 230,000 homes a year needed to supply the demand, the number of firsttime buyers has risen by 22% from the previous year to 326,500, the highest total since 2007.

ASK THE EXPERT

A successful Dorset business

Aimee Ramage MARLA ANAEA Branch Manager, Burns Estates

IS YOUR LETTING AGENT WORKING IN YOUR BEST INTERESTS? Landlords who have been using other agents for years come to me as they’ve heard we do things differently. They’ve made the assumption that all agents are the same so they’ve stayed with their letting agent for years sometimes tolerating poor service. I’ve been working in the industry for over 10 years; you name it, I’ve seen it. Landlords have assumed that their agent had legislation covered, and their best interests looked after. However we’ve discovered properties without gas certificates, energy performance certificates, compliant furniture and even HMO licences. Scary isn’t the word. It’s breaking the law. Are you a Landlord? Did you know that if your agent hasn’t taken action to ensure your property is compliant then you personally could face fines and/or imprisonment for noncompliance? As all good Letting Agents know, legislation changes constantly. When choosing an Agent it’s easy to be blind sighted by fees. But take a moment to think about whether your agent is a member of ARLA. Anyone can set up an Estate or Letting Agency. You don’t have to be a member of any professional body. So let’s put this into context. I’m personally ARLA (Association of Residential Letting Agents) qualified and a member of the ANAEA (National Association of Estate Agents) due to my experience within the property industry. As ARLA Licensed Agents we have a duty of care to our clients to ensure we keep them updated at every step of the way. Right now it’s all about the Consumer Rights Act which has made it a legal requirement for all letting agents in England to display details of all fees and charges (to both landlords and tenants) on Websites from 27th May. Agents must also display whether or not they are a member of a client money protection scheme along with details of the redress scheme that they belong to. Take a moment to ask yourself, is YOUR agent doing this? Are you aware of legal requirements for Landlords under the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974, the control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations 2002 concerning the risk from exposure to Legionella? If not – you could be putting your tenants and yourself at risk. Feel free to contact my wonderful Property Manager Carla Miles for more information. If you’re not using an Agency registered with a professional body such as ARLA, you could be handing over one of the biggest assets you own to a company who could leave you exposed to fines and/or imprisonment. Would you rather have the cheapest fee or the assurance that your property will be looked after from the very beginning and at every step along the way? I know what I’d choose. It’s a no brainer. Don’t get me wrong, I fully understand that income is important. The majority of clients need to extract the highest possible amount from their investment every month. But what if I told you that I could get you more rent pcm than other agents and provide you with a better service? And that I would do this for free for the first 3 months to show you how amazing we are? Call me now to find out more on 01202 55 33 35. Find out why we’re not just different, but better.

DIARY OF A LETTING AGENT Sharon Canning Move on Rentals

IMMIGRATION CHECKS, AND MANDATORY LICENSING Landlords need to take note of David Camerons recent talk on immigration and the details given recently in the Queens speech. 2014 saw net migration hit 318,000 the highest before was under labour at 320,000 in 2005 (according to the Office of National Statistics). Firstly, the right to rent (R2R) will mean as landlords and agents, we will need to be vigilant. This is all part of the Immigration Act 2014 where a tenancy has been granted to someone who may have temporary residence or be an illegal immigrant. It will be down to the landlord/agent to ensure renewal visa dates are highlighted and to have a copy of their passport or biometric residence permit. It will be the landlords’ responsibility to ensure the tenant has the right to work and live in the UK and is not ‘disqualified’ due to their immigration status. This will apply to Leases, tenants and lodgers. A person is ‘disqualified’ if they (a) are not a British Citizen, EEA national or Swiss national and (b) require leave to enter or remain in the UK and do not have it. Landlords are not expected to have expert immigration knowledge but ignorance of the new rules will not be a defence. If you find yourself with a tenant/lodger, under the immigration rules, you must report it to the Home Office. The government are keen to track down illegal immigrants who are disappearing under their own radar and relying on the private rented sector to help track them down. Failure in reporting will see you getting a £3000 fine per illegal occupant. Although there will be new powers to evict illegal immigrants from properties quickly, the details of how have not yet been released. Secondly, this leads me on to mandatory licensing for landlords. I have looked into this more deeply and it looks like it will only apply to landlords with HMO’s. There is definitely some connection to the Immigration side and aimed at landlords who are renting beds in a shed type scenarios, who more often are to illegal immigrants and therefore have no recourse to complain about their living environment. However, be warned as HMO doesn’t necessarily mean the big properties, you only need 3 unrelated people living together to be classed as an HMO and this is definitely being considered as part of the mandatory licensing for landlords. It will be the good landlords as usual who will abide by the rules and end up paying out more money to be a landlord, it is a shame the rogue landlords who are already getting away with it will most probably continue to do so, however, I do not agree with tenants living in poor conditions, regardless of nationality. Have a good week!

Not the Future but the Present In pursuit of greener living, Living Greener offers the public a wondrous solution. Not uncommon or unusual in today’s industry, green roofs and living walls provide the answer. More commonly found in London, these vegetated surfaces offer clients a new way of greening the interior or exterior facades on both domestic and commercial buildings. A product that is sweeping the landscape of Germany and now mandatory for new builds in France, England is catching on. Not only do living roofs look stunning, there are numerous environmental benefits. To name a few; it creates habitat perhaps once lost due to building, improves air quality by absorbing pollutants, provides lower energy bills as both living walls and roofs are essentially thick layers of insulation, green roofs block UV rays- thus protecting roofing membranes, and green roofs provide an answer to

storm water management, as the roofs can soak huge amounts of water which is then more slowly released into the drainage system. By no means an exhaustive list, the benefits stack up, making the choice of living roofs and walls a no brainer. Sculpting something rather beautiful from nature, plants can be arranged in patterns to create a piece of living art. For those who are embracing living walls, we are now installing herb walls perfect for keen chefs, and living coffee tables designed to show the versatility of this natural product. Fruit and vegetables need not be subjected to the ground and can now be grown on rooftop gardens. With gardens and parks dotted with trees popping up

across the city landscapes, a new way of building has commenced. No longer quirky but necessity, these products are not the future but the present.

Massive 20,000sqq Showroom! What do we sell?

Why are we different?

Sofas, beds, dining and garden furniture.

We have ha adopted a very relaxed approach to sales. We don’t really employ sales staff, instead we employ great customer service staff who are on hand to help if needed but will happily leave you to browse the store with a zero pushy or pressurised sales policy. We would like you to pop back in regularly to see what new stock we’ve had in without feeling pressurised to make a purchase.

Why are our prices so much cheaper? We work on a super quick turnover, our suppliers rely on us to clear large quantities of stock when they need it gone. We pass on the huge discounts we receive direct to the customer. We also don’t have super high rent expensive shops on retail parks so you’re not paying for that either! Simple warehouse style shops with very good quality furniture at heavily low prices is exactly what we do do.

Where does our stock come from? We work with a large selection of factories and distributors who supply many of the large household furniture chains you see advertised on the TV. Our favourite deals are cancelled orders, most big furniture retail shops will order everything in usually on a 8-10 week lead time, they have a percentage of orders which get cancelled before delivery but have already gone into pr production. So we buy these best selling current models at a reduced cost. We also sell courier return stock which ooen only has packaging box damage but isn’t in good enough condition to be sent out again. Some of these items may have the odd mark or minor damage but have been reduced to amazingly low prices.

wow

£699

Is our furniture good quality? We do get a wide mix of furniture which does fit all budgets and the quality will reflect that but even our budget items are made with high quality materials to a high standard. OOen customers find they are buying a much higher quality item which they didn’t realise their budget would stretch to. We also have many repeat customers who have looked around and know they are ge getting a very high quality item at a bargain price.

Why our stock changes so regularly? We never know what we are going to get in! Most of our stock is bought blind which means we ooen receive some very special one offs which we pass on with massive discounts!

How long do I have to wait for delivery? We use several s local delivery companies and because we sell the actual item you see in the shop we can ooen arrange same or next day delivery! We’ve had customers sat on their new sofa suite before within an hour!

THE 4K REVOLUTION!

Times are a-changing in TV technology. Less than 10 years ago high definition TV was hardly a consideration, smart phones and the internet were in their infancy. Now we are facing another technology revolution with Ultra High Definition. What exactly is it? Ultra High Definition (UHD) brings in a number of different aspects for both sound and picture. The most obvious change is a dramatically improved picture definition or resolution. Most current televisions have 1920 columns of pixels (rounded to 2000 or 2K), UHD televisions have twice this number, hence the 4K name, actually meaning there is four times the number of pixels on the screen resulting in beautifully defined images. These are the types of screen that you can now buy in shops with screen sizes from 40 inches upwards to over 85 inches. You may have heard of 8K screens as well. These also come under the UHD umbrella and offer four times the number of pixels as 4K, though these screens are aimed at the super large 100 inch and larger commercial market and not available in the UK or Europe. So, you have decided you want a new 4K television, but would like to watch some 4K programmes on it! Where can you get these programmes from? Currently the only live TV available is a test transmission via satellite, but all this is soon to change. YouTube Netflix and Amazon already offer 4K programmes as part of their TV streaming services, you just need a suitable 4K TV to watch them. Sky and BT Vision are due to launch their new 4K services later this year, which promises to bring

4K to the masses and arriving at a similar time will be the first 4K DVD players. Many will question buying a UHD TV when there is so little to watch at the moment, but within the next twelve months a whole host of broadcaster and streaming services will be competing for your viewing minutes, best be ready for them!

Adrian Fry, the managing director at George Fry in Boscombe, Bournemouth says, “The trend in televisions is for larger, higher resolution screens and the demand for better sound has bought about a great range of speaker options and the ability to play your music in any room of the house simply and economically is now appealing to all ages as the use of tablets has become so widespread.” For more information on the latest ranges in home AV give Adrian a call on 01202 431888

But what about the sound; your current TV sounds, well, not great, so, are the new sets any better? In short, no! These super slim TV’s do not lend themselves to good quality sound as the speakers have to be so small. The best way round this is with a soundbar or soundbase. Almost wire free, these speaker systems improve the TV sound dramatically as well as offering wireless music streaming by Bluetooth or wifi, and can even be part of a simple multi room music system.

HOME IMPROVEMENT

SAFE SHADING IN THE HOME We’re almost in the height of summer and already that morning sun rise maybe shortening yours or your family’s sleep or some rooms in your home maybe getting incredibly hot at certain times of the day. If this is the case have you really thought about the best in terms of window shades and if you have a family especially babies and toddlers “safe” shades. It is now a legal requirement for any blind fitter or retailer to fit or supply child safe blinds. Whatever type of blind you buy or have fitted must conform to the legislation. It is a tragic fact that there are 3 - 4 fatalities annually in the UK. Death caused by strangulation or entanglement from cords of window blinds. This topic is taken very seriously by Bryant Furnishing so they have a comprehensive range of different types of blinds that are totally child safe. Their corded curtain tracks are also supplied and fitted with child safety features. Since the legislation came into force in February 2014 blind manufacturers have been working extremely hard to design child safe blinds, in fact, blind design has never been better with exciting innovations coming to the fore. Bryant Furnishing supply only the best to their customers in terms of quality, design and safety. Here is a brief overview of the types of blinds now available and how new technology has enabled them to be child safe. Roller Blinds, now very affordable to be motorised powered by batteries. No chain loops, no wires no mess. Bryant Furnishing have a great range of motorised blinds by leading suppliers such as Lutron

and Luxaflex®. Can also be manually operated with a spring mechanism avoiding chain loops. Sheer fabrics or semi translucent fabrics work well to filter harmful UV rays. Sheer roller blinds are the modern day equivalent to net curtains. Duette® Blinds by Luxaflex®. Possibly the best you can ask for from a blind. This gem of a blind has impressive energy saving properties and is great for black out. The honeycomb structure of the fabric stores air keeping hot air or cold air out of your room. The fabric is right at the edge of the head rail so the gap around the blind, if in a recess, is minimal making it one of the best types of black out blinds. The colours and possibilities with this blind seem endless. They are totally child safe thanks to the brilliant options of “Lite rise®” tensioned so no cords or “smart cord®” one cord to raise and lower the blind so no loops. Also can be motorised and made into all sorts of shapes for those difficult shaped or apex windows. Venetian blinds in wood or metal. Luxaflex® again have come up trumps enabling this blind to be operated by tension cords eliminating long cords at the sides. Also can be motorised. If you have infants at home please check all of your blinds and / or corded curtains. Move cots or beds away from the window and make sure any loops or cords are shortened and fastened up high out the way. If you are concerned about existing window furnishings that aren’t child safe or are interested in new child safe, energy efficient or black out blinds then please contact Bryant Furnishing for a free at home consultation or visit their show room to view samples and to see their full range of high quality blinds.

HOME IMPROVEMENTS

5 TIPS FOR: FEATURE WALLS 1. You can create a feature wall in pretty much any room - chimney breasts, alcoves and walls behind beds, dining tables and sofas usually work well, but not all rooms have these obvious spots. That doesn’t mean it can’t still be an option though, you might just have to think more carefully about which is the best wall of the room to focus on - maybe you want to brighten up the darkest wall, or liven up a wall without any other inbuilt features on it. 2. Painted stripes look fabulous on a feature wall, but are fiddly, time-consuming and often frustrating to do properly. You need to use lowtack masking tape for adjoining stripes - and try a tester piece of tape first, in case it’s not as low tack as it claims to be. Alternatively, do freehand ‘rough’ stripes with a paintbrush or roller and no tape - it’s much easier, but more of an acquired taste.

138

3. Wallpaper is another great way to create a feature wall - if you want stripes the easy way, buy a striped design. Feature walls enable you to enjoy patterned wallpaper without it overpowering the room or making it look too busy. You can even create a horizontal feature on all four walls by using wallpaper (or a different colour paint) between the picture rail and cornicing, between

the picture rail and dado rail, or between the dado rail and skirting board. 4. Murals are similar to wallpaper, but usually depict a scene (a beach, cityscape, mountains, etc) or a large-scale design, such as typography or a map, rather than a more conventional pattern. Unlike wallpaper, which can be hung on as many or few walls as you like, a mural is usually designed to be used on just one, feature wall. 5. Feature walls can be practical as well as pretty. For example, you can have a tiled one in a bathroom or shower room, and a chalkboard one in a kitchen or playroom. Chalkboard paints are available in different colours, so your feature wall doesn’t have to be black. If you’d prefer something less permanent, how about a chalkboard sticker? Wall stickers in general are fantastic for feature walls because they come in lots of different designs, colours and sizes, enabling you to create a unique look.

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.

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

ROAD TEST: SKODA RAPID SPACEBACK SE GREENTECH

148

Skoda claims its Rapid Spaceback allows drivers to ‘reflect their style and attitude’ and while at first it might appear to be just a clever marketing phrase, it turns out to be quite accurate, writes NICK FLETCHER. Drivers who put practicality at the top of the list will find the Spaceback not only has the largest luggage capacity in its class, but also the most head and legroom in the rear. And when it comes to looks, this elegantly-designed model makes a strong and distinctive style statement which sets it apart from its main rivals. And attitude? Well, if you want to underline your ‘green’ credentials, the Spaceback will certainly reflect that – the GreenLine versions have sub-100g/km emissions. The Spaceback is a slightly more sporty-looking version of the Rapid hatchback. Prices start at £13,500 and even the entry models come with aircon, power front windows, remote locking, stability control and six airbags. Mid-range SE versions are great value, adding features such as alloy wheels, cruise control, rear parking sensors and Bluetooth. My recent test model was an SE GreenTech version, priced at £18,180 and powered by a 1.6 litre 105 hp diesel engine. The 0-60 mph time is 10.3 seconds, top speed 118 mph and it returns and impressive 70.6 mpg combined. The Spaceback handles well and the steering gives accurate feedback. Ride quality is nice on smooth surfaces but rather bumpy on the rougher stuff. But overall it comes over as a safe, assured and easy-to-drive car. Rear space will impress family buyers. There is good access to the rear seats and more leg room than in some larger family cars. Luggage space is classleading at 380 litres, and boosts to 1,380 litres with the rear seats folded.

LATEST MINI ‘MOST POWERFUL EVER’ MINI has just launched the most powerful production model it has ever made - the Mini John Cooper Works. Priced from £23,050 it has a 2.0 litre twin-turbo engine offering 231 hp and has a 0-60mph time of 6.1 seconds. It also has revised suspension and brakes, a sports exhaust and an exclusive interior with bucket seats. Acceleration from 0-60 mph takes just 6.3 seconds with the six-speed manual transmission – an improvement of 0.2 seconds, or three per cent, over the previous model – and an even more rapid 6.1 seconds with the optional six-speed Steptronic sports automatic gearbox, which includes Launch Control. Driving flexibility and overtaking prowess have also been “emphatically sharpened” thanks to the 320 Nm of torque: acceleration from 50 to 75 mph is completed in 5.6 seconds (manual gearbox), a 10 per cent improvement over the previous model. With either transmission the top speed is 153 mph.

With the manual gearbox, the new John Cooper Works has combined fuel consumption of 42.2 mpg with CO2 emissions pared to 155 g/km. With the automatic sports transmission there are even more spectacular improvements of almost 20 per cent over the previous model, with figures of 49.6 mpg and 133 g/km. Features include a shift point display advising the driver of the ideal time to change gear; recovery of energy normally wasted as heat when decelerating and braking to top up the battery; use of the fuel pump, coolant pump and other engine ancillaries only as necessary; an electromechanical power steering system which draws energy from the engine only when turning. Other options for the new MINI John Cooper Works include double-zone automatic air conditioning, a panoramic electric glass sunroof, heated driver’s and front passenger’s seats, rain sensors and automatic headlight activation, a 12-speaker Harman Kardon audio system and a huge range of customisation and personalisation features.

TOYOTA GT86 REVISED Toyota’s eye-catching GT86 two-seater sports car has been revised, and the entry price reduced. New wheels and new colours lead the features list, with the range-topping Aero model running on gloss black 18-inch rims and available with a hot GT86 Orange paint finish. Aero is now exclusively available with six-speed manual transmission. The larger alloys are also newly available as an option on the core GT86 model.

The Primo model, entry point to the range, moves on to 16-inch alloys and comes with a £300 lower price tag. An on-going customer offer is available, adding a further £505 saving to deliver an on-the-road price of £22,195. Pricing for other models in the range is unchanged. The GT86 is powered by a 2.0-litre boxer engine, has low centre of gravity, and is rear-wheel drive. The revised model is available to order now with first deliveries in mid-July.

AUDI A3 ULTRA

NEW BMW 3 SERIES The new 3 Series Saloon and Touring models have received “a subtle evolution” to their front and rear styling, the company says. Under the bonnet, the majority of engines are completely new and hail from the latest modular BMW EfficientDynamics engine family, with standout models such as the new three-cylinder 318i, the 326hp 340i, the 99g/km 320dED. “With further advancements to gearboxes, chassis dynamics and personalisation options, plus a huge array of advanced technology such as the new optional BMW Professional Navigation, the new 3 Series is better equipped than ever,” says BMW. Offered as an alternative to standard specification, the Sport and Luxury models place emphasis on different

aspects of the new BMW 3 Series’ character. The M Sport model offers additional options “designed to increase road presence and driving enjoyment.” The new BMW 3 Series Saloon and Touring ranges feature a total of four petrol engines and seven diesel engines. All the three, four and six-cylinder petrol engines, and the four-cylinder diesel units in the BMW 316d, BMW 318d and BMW 320d, are now sourced from the newly developed, modular BMW EfficientDynamics engine family and are equipped with the latest BMW TwinPower Turbo technology. The new BMW 3 Series models go on sale in July. Prices have yet to be announced.

MAZDA MOTABILITY BOOST Mazda has given its Motability programme a spring boost with the inclusion of its all-new supermini model in the scheme. The all-new Mazda2 went on UK sale earlier this year and four models are now included in the Motability programme with the Mazda2 1.5 75hp SE air con manual available with nil advance payments. Other range models now in the scheme are the: Mazda2 1.5 90ps SE-L Nav, Mazda2 1.5 90hp Sport Nav and Mazda2 1.5 90ps SE-L Auto. On-the-road prices for the Mazda2 start from £11,995.

The importance of the Motability programme to Mazda was underlined by the marque exhibiting at the recent two-day ‘Big Event’ in Manchester. It is Motability’s largest event of the year giving those in receipt of allowances the opportunity to view the largest display of vehicles available through the scheme. Mazda will also be exhibiting at Motability’s regional ‘One Big Day’ events at the Peterborough Arena, Cambridgeshire, on Thursday, 6 August and Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire, on Saturday, 12 September.

Improvements to fuel economy and emissions mean the Audi A3 three-door and Sportback 1.6 TDI 110 hp models now get the company’s Ultra badge. Quattro all-wheel-drive also becomes available on the saloon and Sportback models with this engine. The A3 1.6 TDI ultra is priced from £20,865, A3 Sportback 1.6 TDI ultra from £21,485. Quattro versions start from £22,915. The A3 1.6 TDI ultra six-speed manual has a 0-60mph time of 10.5 seconds, top speed 124mph, returns 83.1 mpg combined and has emissions of just 89g/km. Says Audi: “With optimised aerodynamics and advanced lightweight construction that has helped it to tip the scales up to 80kg lighter than its predecessor the A3 provides the perfect foundation for an ultra model. “To create the A3 1.6 TDI ultra, the final drive ratio in the standard six-speed manual transmission working with the EU6-compliant 1.6 TDI engine has been modified, lowered sports suspension has been incorporated and special tyres have minimised rolling resistance.”

AVOIDING ROAD RAGE Road safety charity the IAM has issued advice to drivers on how to avoid road rage incidents. IAM head of driving standards Peter Rodger says: “The first point is that with any conflict between two parties, both are likely to have played a part. So try to take yourself away from the problem – let the other driver go on ahead. You might feel wronged, but letting the other party go will make no difference to the rest of your day. “If someone is being confrontational or aggressive, don’t make eye contact and don’t react visibly. And in your own mind, try to think about a different subject as quick as you can, so that the incident doesn’t affect you afterwards. “If the conflict is more serious and other processes aren’t working; call the police, especially if you feel there is a threat or possibility of violence against you. “If you or better, your passengers, can film any behaviour on your mobile phone it will help in terms of evidence, including the registration number of the other vehicle involved. Don’t open your door, don’t open your windows fully and don’t start or get provoked into an argument. “If you were at fault, admit it and apologise. It may be enough to diffuse the situation quickly. And do not do anything that can be interpreted as retaliation. Even if you weren’t at fault is the argument really worth it?”

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

URBAN BEACH 23 Argyll Road, Bournemouth, Dorset BH5 1EB A pleasure to be greeted by such an excited team to see us on a Friday afternoon, House was welcomed with open arms by Urban Beach. Contradictory to its name and not to be confused with Urban Reef, Urban Beach is the hotel and restaurant not situated on the beach. Instead located on the outskirts of Boscombe but not too distant from the sea, a Tiki bar much like you would find along the Caribbean sands, Urban Beach feels like a little slice of holiday tucked away in a busy town. A little quirky harking back to its named roots, surf boards hang from the ceiling, comfortable against soft furnishings and dim lit lighting, making this residence feel warm and comforting. An orange hue flushes the interior as though the open doors have tempted the sun to flood inwards and dress the walls with its radiance. Seated in an alcove all smiles and laughing, how could you not be on a Friday lunch right before the bank holiday, House were introduced to head chef Francis Baumer. Passionate about produce, Francis explained that Urban Beach endeavour to use locally sourced produce that’s in season as much as they can. Having begun the new season we were sure to find asparagus and lamb on the menu, and that we did. Francis explained that their asparagus was sourced from the new forest, which rightly so for myself, many of us do not realise is grown on our doorstep. Fresh from the forest, and lightly season it was a delicious starter accompanied with potato remoulade and an egg named Dave. Simple food cooked to perfection is how Francis chooses to approach food, and I don’t

think you could get a better example than this. Other starters included a duck scotch egg, which seemed to be a favourite around the table. Created using confit duck legs from Cornwall, it was explained how this makes the Scotch egg filling so delicate and tasty. Endeavouring to keep up with seasonality vs. locality Francis and the team have devised a menu that champions this desire. On to the main courses and swishing back a few glasses of crisp Sauvignon Blanc or the team’s favourite Cabernet Merlot, I watch as the table became further animated within Urban Beaches chilled setting. If I braided my hair and wore flowers I think I would be at one with Urban Beach. For the lamb, a fresh take on shepherds pie went down a storm amongst the boys, when does it not. Raving about the lamb until the cows come home, I think its safe to say the lamb is delicious. Tender and carefully laid on top of your normal shepherds pie accompaniments of mash and vegetables it was rich in flavour and scoffed in seconds. Bringing the fruits of the sea to your plate we sampled a delicate piece of sea-reared trout accompanied by wild garlic pesto and a tartare style potato cake. Flaking away as your fork tucks into the fish it was beautiful. How I like to eat fish. Just carefully dressed with subtle hints of flavours, there is no need to overcomplicate. Other favourites included

the asparagus and wild mushroom tartlet, which was devoured due to its herb butter sauce. Not everyone’s cup of tea, but of course my favourite, melting chocolate fondant, I was very happy to see this chocolate crowning glory sit just next to my spoon. Whilst a few others might have cast their eye over my dessert I wasn’t letting this one go. As a dessert kind of girl I allowed the team to beat me to the starters and mains but not this. A chocolate orange twist, the best way I can describe this dessert was a bit like a warm chocolate Jaffa cake. The orange sauce pungent and imitating the exact same orange taste found in the centre of a Jaffa, It’s every Jaffa cake lovers dream. Eaten with a scoop of Salisbury strawberry ice cream, this dessert takes Neapolitan to the next level. If your not a chocolate dare devil then the caramelised custard tart could be your bag. An egg custard tart finished with the blow torch to create that caramelised topping and served with malt vanilla ice cream and granola, this was a surprising dessert and all the more enjoyable. A fantastic afternoon, much as though I’d taken a day trip to join the penguins of Madagascar, it was far too much fun with far to much alcohol for some and I left thinking “just smile and wave boys, smile and wave!”

HEALTH & BEAUTY

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

A NEW ERA IN TANNING… The idea of making the whole self-tanning situation fuss-free really excites people. In-shower tanning is proving this point and could be the most-talked about tanovation since bottled bronzing hit the high street back in the late 80s. So what the heck does tanning in your shower involve? And how can it possibly work? The product everybody wants is the new St Tropez Gradual Tan in Shower Lotion, which you apply to clean wet skin, wait for 3 minutes (whilst waiting ambassador Kate Moss combs conditioner through her hair), and wash off. Sounds simple, because it is. The science is, too. DHA (the molecule in self-tan that reacts on skin’s the surface to colour it) is water soluble, meaning that wet skin cells are more receptive to the reaction taking place, although this

CHIC Beauty Salon & Academy of Beauty

one’s intended to be subtle. What this mind boggler means is that even if you’re slap-dash, you can get a buildable golden glow that starts in the shower, potentially saving you loads of time. When I heard about the new St Tropez Gradual Tan in Shower Tanning Lotion I simply had to try it. Nothing makes you feel better than a sun kissed glow and I’m a regular St Tropez user, however like you I dread the ‘tan on the bed sheets’ issue and the ‘I can’t do or touch anything feel as I’ve just had a spray tan’.

whist waiting (I never knew 3 minutes could be soooo long!) I washed the product off after the time was up and my skin felt really soft (as well as my hair) I got out the shower, patted my skin dry and went to bed.

The idea of the new St Tropez product sounded intriguing - supposedly you are meant to apply the creamy lotion to clean wet skin, in the shower, before washing it off. Over a few hours a hint of a tan is meant to develop into a golden glow. Sounds too good to be true? I’ll be honest, I was quite dubious as to how it would work.

8 hours later….It worked. Honestly. I awoke this morning to a pale, golden, soft hint of a tan with no streaks whatsoever, and my face also looked lightly bronzed with no tell-tale patchiness. Colour-wise it doesn’t give a dark, type of tan, more a golden glow, so if you want it darker then you need to reapply it again - which I of course did this morning!

So the application went well, it was really easy to apply and I decided to deep condition my hair

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.
