GOADSBY PROPERTY MANAGEMENT EXPANSION Adrian Carter, Director of Goadsby Property Management Department, is delighted to announce the appointment of 3 new staff members.

AS PREDICTED, GOVERNMENT SHINES LIGHT ON BUY-TO-LET TO TACKLE HOUSING CRISIS Prior to the Election in May 2015, Michael Riley, Director of Capital & Coastal, correctly predicted that despite which party came into power, it would only be a matter of time before the new Government “shone a light” on the buyto-let industry as a way of tackling the lack of stock driving the country’s housing crisis. Today, George Osborne has cut mortgage interest relief on buyto-let homes in an effort to create a “level playing field” between prospective landlords and those buying their homes to live in. Michael Riley comments on this potentially industry changing taxrelief crackdown.

Limiting tax relief to those who fall into the basic 20 per cent income tax rate could force some landlords, particularly those with large loans, to sell up, and I think the London market, where property values are greatest, is likely to be most hit by the change. Suddenly a landlord with a £1000 interest payment has to find an extra £200 per month. Some landlords may opt to increase rents but they will never be able to do so enough to cover the shortfall and tenants simply won’t pay it. Some may try to shelter themselves against it by putting their buy-to-lets within companies but if they have a residential or buy-to-let mortgage they won’t be able to do that. I think there will also be a reduction in the number of people planning buy-to-let investment to fund their retirement.

“Stephen Pearce and Nathan Haggar have been appointed as Management Assistants and will be embarking upon a training programme towards the AssocRICS qualification with the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, the world’s leading professional body for qualifications and standards in land, property and construction.

“The biggest concern for landlords is that the government has now realised that it’s not healthy for the housing market to have multiple properties owned by individuals. Making multiple ownership less attractive by abolishing tax relief on buy-to-let mortgages will have a significant impact on the industry over the next five years as I believe today’s announcement is only the thin end of the wedge.

In addition to these appointments we have also recruited Philip Marston, as a department manager. Philip has over 25 years of property experience and is a Chartered Surveyor. These strong additions to the team, will be needed as four new instructions have recently been won which will add 5% to the department’s fee turnover in the next 3 months and will involve managing in excess of 150 new units”.


Should you require any property management assistance Adrian Carter can be contacted on 01202 550000.

This package is available for a one off cost from as little as £350 including VAT. Plus they are on hand to offer help, advice and the benefit of their combined 45 years of experience and local knowledge.

Homesale Direct is a new, innovative way to sell your home. As the customer, you are completely in control. Choose from a menu of services and a marketing package that has all of the vital ingredients for a successful home sale including a full brochure, professional internal photographs, floor plans and personalised ‘For Sale’ boards. They will even market your property on Right Move until a sale is achieved.

Now that the wheels are in motion, it’s possible over the next 3-4 years, landlords will have to pay tax on all income derived from buy-to-let.”

In short, their customers only pay them to do the parts of the job that they cannot do themselves. They have no nasty contracts and no tie ins just a simple cost effective service. Call them on 01425 610016.

OSBORNE BUDGET SHOULD INSTIL CONFIDENCE, SAYS CONNELLS The emergency budget delivered by Chancellor George Osborne on 8th July should instil confidence in the economy and boost the housing market in the future, says local estate agency Connells in Wareham. Branch manager for Connells Jon Williams, believes the Chancellor’s budget marks the end of any economic uncertainty that clouded the last year of the coalition and provides a steadying impact on the housing market. “The Chancellor presented a budget that was very pro home ownership, signalling its support for aspiring home owners and its intention to create a fairer property market,” says Jon. “We hope recent initiatives such as the extension of ‘Right to Buy’ to housing association tenants and the soon to launch Help to Buy ISA will stimulate more buyer and seller activity which can only be good news for the local property market.” The Help to Buy ISA launches this autumn through banks and building societies and is available to take out for up to four years on homes worth up to £450,000 in London and £250,000 elsewhere. It will assist first time buyers to save for a deposit by allowing individuals to save up to £200 a month towards their first home which the government will then boost by 25%. Effectively this is a £50 bonus for every £200 saved, up to £3,000. “Now the emergency budget has been given, we hope to see increasing confidence in the housing market,” concludes Jon. If you are buying for the first time, thinking of moving up the property ladder and would like to speak to Connells about the local property market, contact your local branch on (01929) 553636 or email wareham@ connells.co.uk.

MARKET UPDATE SECOND QUARTER There have been a series of macro factors affecting the market over the course of the last quarter. These have made decision making for those of you transacting in the housing market locally like trying to pin a tail on a donkey. There has also been a big win for this column, as we predicted changes to interest relief on buy-to-let mortgages many months ago, when the national press kept ignoring our views. Let’s look at the main points individually:The Election. This was less of an elephant in the room and more of an elephant in a housing market pool. It was a huge distraction to the market at the end of April and May. It went something like this: OMG there’s an elephant next to the swimming pool, I think we should all get out and just look at the elephant (some people scream, others stare with their jaws open, some start to film the unwinding catastrophe). Election Day (Elephant swan dives into pool). OMG x 10 people predict all manner of outcomes. Will elephant die? Whose fault is it? Tweets get tweeted, it all goes viral and most importantly no one is swimming. The Result: Elephant does some lengths up and down, with an impressive back stroke and walks out of the pool and smiles to the crowd, having slightly surprised himself. The mess gets tidied up and everyone shouts…. YAY pool’s open, let’s go for a swim… I love swimming, yeah let’s swim! And the housing market leaps into action again, well…for a couple of weeks at least.

AFC Bournemouth being promoted. This is likely to have a positive impact on the local economy in multiple ways, but it might not be as expected. Sure, there will be a handful of expensive house sales and rentals as a result of players needing accommodation. But, it’s the ‘long tail’ of the change where the majority of the market will be affected. Having football fans visiting the area will mean bar owners, hoteliers, retailers, restaurants and taxi drivers will see an increase in takings, and this money will filter through directly and indirectly into

...this Budget could well be the start of a seismic change in wealth distribution and property ownership. residential property of all types. It’s also a huge boost for tourism generally, as the whole area will benefit from the free publicity that TV, radio and newspaper coverage will bring. The Budget - Mortgage interest relief on buy-to-let homes has been cut in an effort to create a more level playing field between prospective landlords and those buying their homes to live in. This is a potentially industry changing taxrelief crackdown. The biggest concern for landlords is that the government

has now realised that it’s not healthy for the housing market to have multiple properties owned by individuals. We believe this is only the thin end of the wedge. By limiting tax relief to those who fall into the basic 20 per cent income tax rate could force some landlords, particularly those with large loans, to sell up. The government want to increase supply and make it more affordable for people to buy, especially first time buyers. The Budget – Rent a room tax. Tucked away in the Budget is the change to rent a room tax. The Chancellor has nearly doubled the amount a homeowner can make tax free from renting a room out to £7500 per year. As there are 19 million unused bedrooms in the UK this encourages people to put them to better use. Given the current high demand of people wanting small properties it provides an alternative means of finding more affordable accommodation. Moreover, many elderly homeowners could do with some support around the house, it’s also a win-win for people who need somewhere to live and owners who could use income and maybe some home-help. We feel that this Budget could well be the start of a seismic change in wealth distribution and property ownership. Print this and put it in your file for 2025 and see if we predicted this correctly too.

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 all-year-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: “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 or call the office 01202 536 422.

One of Dorset’s leading recruitment companies is undergoing major changes following a partnership buyout. Recruitment consultant Jacqueline Entwistle has purchased shares from her former silent business partner and is now rebranding the company. Quantum Recruitment was established in 2010 initially to service the staffing requirements for the Quantum Group, but the business soon expanded to become a specialist consultancy in the construction, commercial, hospitality and healthcare sectors looking after clients nationwide. Last month the final negotiations were completed with Jacqueline now becoming the sole owner and Quantum Recruitment will be rebranded to Real Recruitment Solutions. Speaking of her optimism for the future, Jacqueline commented “I am passionate about enhancing the already high standards of service we offer and I am really looking forward to seeing Real Recruitment Solutions grow. From our base in Bournemouth we have a professional team supporting our clients and candidates across the UK. The change should be a seamless process, for us it is all about relationship

building and offering a bespoke service which will continue under the new company name.” If the current upward trend is maintained, Real Recruitment Solutions should see continued business growth, following on from a year on year increase. Jacqueline added, “It may be a bit wobbly, but in general the UK economy has improved which has resulted in new jobs being created. In some of our specialist industries such as construction and hospitality there is a significant shortage of highly skilled, qualified personnel, so businesses are far more prepared to hire a boutique recruitment consultancy to help fill important key vacancies. It is well worth the investment and saves them time and money.” Visit www.realrecruitmentsolutions. co.uk or contact Real Recruitment Solutions on 01202 530770.

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.

A rich anthology of designs from this unmistakeable, hallmark American fashion house. SIGNATURE SUR LA COTE FABRICS The charismatic Riviera expressed through both prints and weaves Inspired by the stunning beauty of Mediterranean harbour towns and boating on the Riviera, graphic island prints and nautical motifs are realized in classic maritime hues with pops of red and yellow for chic coastal style. Printed and woven on cottons, linens, and other blends, this collection takes you from spirited scenic views and nautical emblems and crests, to classic stripes and traditional houndstooths.

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

By James Tiller, MARLA

Anna Corbridge-Atkins Lettings Negotiator

Georgina Brittain Property Manager

Know your tenancy agreement By Simon Whitlock

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

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

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

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

Know your tenant

Make your property presentable

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

By Ellie Mattison, MARLA

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

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

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

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

ACORN UNVEIL THE CHOCOLATE BOX ‘‘This is a truly outstanding location and the close proximity to the town centre and coast together with the high demand for rental properties and modest prices, mean these apartments are already highly soughtafter,’’ said Stuart Callaghan.

NEW APARTMENTS in Bournemouth are set to be launched this month by Acorn South, offering buyers a taste of the high life. The homes are part of the regeneration project of Heron House in Christchurch Road, one of the town’s most distinctive buildings. Acorn’s regional managing director Stuart Callaghan said interest has been high since plans were announced to transform the former office building into striking, modern apartments and he was delighted to officially launch the new development. ‘‘Heron House is a 10 storey former office block which we are now transforming into 94 apartments with the first due to be complete in the Autumn,’’ said Stuart. ‘‘Already the homes have been in demand from first time buyers locally and investors looking to capitalise on the popularity and potential returns in Bournemouth,’’ said Stuart. Homes released now are priced from £130,000 for a studio apartment to around £235,000 for one of the largest two bedroom homes with sea views. Local agent Hearnes is handling viewings with managing director Sally Gravener already reporting high levels of interest.

‘‘We are pleased to be working with Acorn South on sales of the Chocolate Box,’’ said Sally. “It’s an exciting development and we have already had interest from buyers and from landlords.’’

This is a truly outstanding location... the high demand for rental properties and modest prices mean these apartments are already highly sought-after...

” She said the location close to the town centre and beach together with the quality of the apartments is proving a real draw. Once complete, The Chocolate Box will offer a collection of studios, one and two bedroom apartments all with modern interiors and bathed in light from oversized windows to maximise panoramic sea and cityscape views.

The Chocolate Box offers all the shops, restaurants, bars and entertainment you would expect from a popular, cosmopolitan city and is only a five minute walk to Bournemouth Central railway station, with regular services to London Waterloo. Walking to town centre shops and Bournemouth’s golden sandy beach takes just 10 minutes. Bournemouth University’s Christchurch and Talbot campuses are nearby, Bournemouth Arts University is only a 10-minute cycle and all of Bournemouth’s language schools are within easy reach. A regular bus service runs from outside the development’s entrance, there is secure parking on site at the rear of the property and Bournemouth Airport is five miles away. Football fans will also have easy access to Premier League football next season - with AFC Bournemouth located just 10 minutes away at the Goldsands Stadium. For more information contact Hearnes on 01202 317 317.

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

Considering Buy-to-Let? Many people have looked at property to supplement their income, by becoming a buy-to-let landlord. This includes those who have already retired where ‘Grandlords’ look to supplement their own personal pension income but also includes people that have various


investments and look for a good return by investing in in UK property. Some landlords have been so successful investing in property that rental income is their sole source of income. Others may become landlords accidentally, for example by inheriting a property, where you have a surplus property when you meet a partner or you may have problems selling your existing property and want to move so the option to rent out your existing property becomes more attractive. When looking to buy new properties, most landlords use buy-to-let mortgages and this sector is booming. There are many lenders offering this type of mortgage but you may ask; how do buy to let mortgages work and how do I become a landlord? Whilst one size certainly does not fit all, there are some standard criteria that apply to buy to let mortgages. The minimum deposit

Mobile Car Wash & Valeting Carpet & Upholstery Kitchens & Ovens Disinfectant Steam Cleaning Windows & Glass Office Cleaning Pressure Jet Wash

you need is 15% to obtain a buy-to-let mortgage, however across Bournemouth and Poole (and generally in the south) the rental yields rarely work when lenders conduct their affordability assessments and they require that you put down at least 20 or 25% as a deposit. You do need to own your main residence generally

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.

speaking before you look to purchase a buy-to-let property and first time landlords are scrutinised more carefully. Whilst most lenders have a minimum income requirement of £25,000 per annum, there are a few that do not have a minimum income requirement, other than the confirmation that you are a taxpayer and have some form of earned income. Certainly, the more you earn the more options you will have when it comes to borrowing and indeed the more competitively priced you will find those mortgage options. A recent study conducted by The Wriglesworth Consultancy states that UK property is one of the best performing investment strategies of the last twenty years and it provides average returns that far exceed the average returns from other major asset classes. So what are you waiting for?

TALKING BUSINESS House talks business with ECA Architecture and Planning

ECA Architecture and Planning ECA Architecture and Planning talk to House magazine about typology and what makes them tick. Tell us about the house featured on the front cover. This is a house in Canford Cliffs, currently going through planning. The clients approached us with a mind to do something really exceptional on the plot. The site is extremely constrained by a series of undistinguished 1930s houses on one side and recent poor copies of 1930s housing on the other. We have set out to create a high-end house design that would create a striking elevation in the street scene whilst also giving a faint echo of the neighbouring house typologies, re-imagined. The first floor is designed to appear to float above the ground through the use of lightweight materials and by recessing the elevation at ground level. The left half of the street elevation is also kept lightweight so as to be able to read the original proportions of the house it replaces. The second floor is stepped back and appears nestled behind the dominant first floor stone walls. The loft room is formed of two roof plates that do not quite meet at the apex thus giving a light slot to this double height room. 1


F OPTION 2 The SKETCH building

is conceived as a series of planes or facets that are modulated in or out to give a sense of opening and light. This is clear on the first floor stone wall where half of the main elevation is pushed out to create a projecting bay. This is emphasised with a corner window that wraps around the elevation

giving great views from this bedroom space along the street. On the left side of the street elevation the left wall forms a dark blade that gives a full stop to the building and contrasts the glass and stone that abut it. On the second floor the planes are clearly visible where the roof is created from three large plates set at 45º. The final effect is that of a fractured cube with a series of panels that has been expanded to give opening and light into the building. The ambition is not to produce a watered down copy of its neighbours. Nor is it to create stark contrast through a now ubiquitous modernist style of house. Its origins are more to do with a contemporary typology with use of slots, plates, louvres and a faceting of the façade. So what about the origins of ECA and this design rationale? ECA was formed nine years ago as an architectural studio in Greek Street, Soho, London with two partners, Nick Edwards and Adam Covell. We were a cross-disciplinary practice working on masterplans as well as producing architectural film animations and teaching architecture theory at Cambridge University and the Architectural Association. 3


In 2007 we set up another office in the Middle East, in Dubai. Working in this environment gave rise Second Floor, �3 Winchester to a host of new challenges such as working on Street, �Poole Place, �North BH15 1NX tall buildings and large masterplan projects such E:info@eca-p.com W: eca-p.com as a 5km2 city extension T: 01202 675 152 in Mecca, Saudi Arabia. In 2009 the global recession restructured the company again. With Middle Eastern work faltering we focused the business on the UK and moved the office from London to Dorset, setting up in Poole. The dynamic of the practice also shifted as Nick left GROUND�AND�FIRST�FLOOR ON�MODEL�RELATE�TO the firm and was replaced by Martha Covell.

Sell your home from just With Homesale Direct, a groundbreaking new service offered by Harrison Estate Agents in New Milton, you can now pay fees as low as £350 (inc VAT) to market your home for sale. Use the professional services of a local, established high street estate agent to value and advertise your home for sale, and at the same time enjoy the cost savings of an online DIY agent.

Join the many thousands of people who are taking control and selling their property themselves, whilst saving thousands of pounds in estate agents commission with no contract tie-in. The average commission to an estate agent in the UK is over £5000 and many homeowners are looking for a way to avoid paying these high commissions. Homesale Direct is a progressive service developed to give you, the homeowner, control over the marketing and cost of your home sale without having to resort to using a ‘faceless’ and largely unknown internet based sales agent. Our progressive service allows you to use the services of a local and long-established estate agent, whose staff have over 45 years’ combined knowledge in the property market.

£350 inc VAT

Homesale Direct is designed to give you total control of your property sale. We do the things you cannot easily do, and you do the rest!

Many homes are selling in days rather than months, and it is well publicised that 95% of home sales result from an internet enquiry. So why pay an agent several thousand pounds when you can do all the easy jobs yourself for free? In fact you only need an estate agent to market and advertise your property and introduce you to potential buyers until the property is sold. So, what needs to be done? 1. A good sales brochure

2. A plan of your property

3. Advertising your property on major websites such as Rightmove 4. An Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) 5. A personalised “For Sale” board

Choose from our clear and simple menu of marketing services to bring buyers into direct contact with your home and save thousands of pounds in estate agent fees.

Homefield Park: proof that demand is high for luxury living for over 55s in Dorset

OVER 55’s DEMAND FOR LUXURY HOMES CREATES HUGE PROPERTY SURGE IN DORSET Bournemouth based Platinum Skies experienced unprecedented demand for its age exclusive luxury homes following its final phase release at Homefield Park, Christchurch. An open day in March attracted over 100 viewers to the launch of four new apartments in an original Georgian country villa, the grounds of which stand 24 houses for people over 55. All four apartments, reserved within weeks – are now homes to new residents. Mark Dunne, Head of Marketing said: “We didn’t anticipate such high demand on launch day. Many visitors were local, and had watched building progress for months. Although there are plenty of homes for over 55s locally, our research and customer feedback tells us that there are simply not enough that are as spacious, luxurious or of the high standard that people are accustomed to.”

Post General Election peak From April until June, over two thirds of these properties were reserved – a total of 13 houses, ranging from 2/3 bed detached, semi-detached and Mews. The company experienced a slowdown prior to May’s General Election – swiftly followed by a surge in viewings. What is the secret of this phenomenal success story? Not enough homes like this being built A local estate agent, who had visited throughout each development phase explained: “Quite simply, there aren’t enough luxury homes for the over 55s like this being built. Clients who’ve lived in large family homes all their lives – why would they want to suddenly squeeze themselves into a pokey apartment? It beggars belief.” A Platinum Skies Sales Consultant commented: “First impressions count, and everyone is amazed at the layout and spaciousness of the properties and the grounds.

The village green, beautiful trees and the privacy and security of a gated enclosure all make it unique.” Both the properties and grounds are beautiful and spacious A Platinum Skies resident said: “My home’s so spacious – I love the large rooms throughout. My friends always comment on how light and airy it is. It’s as far removed from the image of a retirement home as possible. Everything is modern, brand new, easy to manage and looks stunning.” The properties, marketed in Dorset, Hampshire and Wiltshire have attracted a number of buyers from across the UK. Platinum Skies is currently planning more developments for the over 55s in Poole, Christchurch and Salisbury. If Homefield Park is anything to go by, the demand for luxury retirement living will soon be met for our ageing and growing population.

Tapping into this niche market, Waterside Properties are experts in their industry, championing as market leaders. Passionate about waterside living they know the tips and tricks to maintain, which often is an exquisite home with panoramic views across surreal blue waters. Owning a waterside property can be something to cherish and enjoy for many years as long as you take proper care of the building and the location. When it comes to selling your waterside property these are some of the tips Waterside Properties advice to enable a quick and profitable sale of your home. Follow these top tips to help spruce up your home before selling.

Presentable Balcony Standing on the balcony, drinking in the view is often the selling point of waterside properties. A fundamental focus where many leisurely afternoons are spent means this space needs to be well kept. Waterproofing wooden balconies is vital to maintain the beauty of your balcony. This can be achieved by applying a waterproofing sealant to

01202 974891 bournemouth@watersideproperties.com 106


protect the wooden structure from the elements. A good nick balcony is a plus point when selling your home.

Maintaining Windows Windows facing out towards the water offer a viewing point from which to stand and admire. They therefore should be well maintained. Dirty cluttered windows obscure the view. Taking time to clean windows till they are sparkling is well worth it.

Pipes Living by the water can mean pipes get cold and therefore water take longer to heat up. Make sure your pipes are well insulated. This may not be a visible selling point, but mentioning to potential buyers that you have done so provides piece of mind that might be the extra push they require to make an offer.

A Lick Of Paint Exterior paint job – look at it and make sure it is kept clean. Gravity and being close to the water are the enemy, so if you see a crack or chip get it painted. Inside give your walls a fresh lick of paint; neutral colours will make your home seem lighter and bigger.

De-clutter People need to be able to envisage what their property would look like if they were living there. This can often be difficult if rooms are pilled high with stuff. People often buy into a lifestyle so show them the attractive side to your lifestyle.

Fix and Clean Prospective buyers often are looking to move into a property without having to renovate or fix multiple problems. Go around the property and make any minor repairs needed. A beautifully sparkling home rid of odours and dirt makes the home more appealing and allows viewers to image living there.

Bad Odours Bad smells are the single biggest turn off for prospective buyers. Don’t just cover them up, fix the source of smell. Conversely, good smells can make a property feel like an alluring home. The smell of salty air could be a great attraction, so make sure no bad odours are obstructing the wafts of a salty breeze from winning.

The Diary of Sharon Canning Move on Rentals

SALES, RENTALS AND AUTOMOBILES Well….it has been an eventful few weeks! Firstly as you can see from the picture below, I was in a car accident. I am ok; although it did shake me up a bit as it was my first major accident. The man in the other car was a little dazed too, however, he was on his way to his mother who had been given 48 hours to live…… which puts it all into perspective - as a car is only metal. The insurance company was brilliant. The accident happened at 9.30 am, they picked up the car by 2.30 pm and my courtesy car was delivered to my home by 4.30pm. So, my little trio of Move On cars are twins for the time being. Secondly, we are up for another award! Move On have reached the semi-finals of the Venus awards for the Marketing and PR award, sponsored by Exterion Media. We are so proud to be recognised for this and all the staff have got their fingers, legs, toes and eyes crossed we can get through to the to the next stage, which means we go a lovely dinner and get to dress up in our lovely posh frocks. Update on Move On Sales. The word is getting out there; the new window display has been ordered and the new website is almost ready to go live. We are already receiving enquiries from prospective vendors and the whole team is excited at what the next few months will bring. Some of you will know, I also run a national agency called Landlord to Landlord Sales, which concentrates on selling tenanted properties from landlords to landlords all over the country. This means the outgoing landlord receives rent up to the day of completion and the incoming landlord receives rent from day one. Since we set this up 4 years ago, it has gone from strength to strength. (We have even won a dotcom award for the website). Part of the success is down to 97% of our sales go through to completion, which is extremely high for any agent! June was a very active month with multiple sales a week being put in hand, one of which was a block of flats for just over a million pounds. Our database of investors looking to purchase for the first time or build on their current portfolios and consortiums with lots of cash ready to spend, is growing all the time. On the lettings side, don’t forget the new legislation coming into play in October where all tenanted properties must have a smoke alarm on every floor and a carbon monoxide reader by the boiler. Have a good week! Sharon

If you would like a friendly, no obligation chat regarding any property matter, then please Email sharon@moveonrentals.com or telephone 01202 711169. Don’t forget Sharon now produces and presents a live weekly Radio property show on Wednesdays 12-2pm on HopeFM 90.1 and also speaks monthly at a property investors meeting on the 2nd Tuesday of each month (for more details contact Sharon)


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

HOME IMPROVEMENT PLAY3 – Like Panasonic, Sonos have a wide range of sizes available in black and white finishes.

ALLPLAY bedside – compact and full of features this multiroom speaker from Panasonic has a clock, bluetooth and wifi

LISTENING TO THE STREAM The days of listening to physical music such as discs or even tapes may really be drawing to a close. There has been a resurgence of vinyl records being purchased over the last year or so, but this is really a tiny, tiny percentage of music that is being bought and listened to. The recent arrival of Apple into the “streaming” music arena does show that our listening habits have changed, and it isn’t just the youth market that is driving this change. So, what is “streaming”? If you listen to music or watch video on a device such as a phone or tablet or network speaker (more about that later!), that is not stored on the device but through a network, maybe wifi or mobile, that is “streaming”. Netflix and Now TV are examples of video streaming that are becoming a standard option on a number of the latest smart TV’s. Spotify, Deezer and as mentioned Apple Music are music streaming services. We will concentrate on music streaming here, as this is the really big change in music and how we listen to it. Manufacturers such as the much lauded Sonos

and other brands such as Panasonic and Samsung all offer music streaming or network speaker systems that can be added to for full multi-room systems. All of these systems use a tablet or phone to control the speaker and what it is playing, Sonos also allows the use of a standard laptop or PC for control. They can all play music that you have downloaded to your PC or phone etc, or stream music from Deezer and Spotify’s catalogue of over 30 million tracks. Not only that but radio from all around the world is available plus the local favourites we know and love. New to the range from Panasonic are a couple of systems that combine the latest streaming technology with the more familiar CD and DAB radio, enabling the move to the new music age without having to say goodbye to the last one! CD and DAB can be played to all the connected speakers without having to download a song!

SONOSAPP – Sonos the brand leader has the slickest software app to run the whole system and is free on Apple iOS and android platforms

ALLPLAY range – Panasonic offer a range of sizes and colours to suit all environments.

Playbarsub – The Sonos Playbar & Sub is an awesome music system and fantastic quality soundbar that gives jaw dropping performance and bass

The speakers are compact and powerful, just requiring a mains socket for power and connection to your home wifi network are available in a range of colours and can even be wall mounted if required. Prices for these speakers start from under £170 so you really can get started without having to dig deep. For more information, and a free home survey to ascertain your requirements, contact Adrian Fry from George Fry in Bournemouth on 01202 431888. George Fry can offer a complete design, install and commissioning service that includes on site tuition and after sales service.

PMX100 system – This mini system has CD, DAB and FM radio plus all the streaming capabilities you could desire.


TALKING BUSINESS House talks business with Jane and Rob from Access Lifts

Access Lifts Lift with a View Access Lifts ltd of Dorset has just completed a unique project, a lift with a view.

them the access they required with the most amazing views when travelling in it.

that each lift installed is exactly right for its planned use and location.

The clients live in a property that was on a steep incline, requiring a lift that would enable them to get their groceries from their garage to their front door.

Rob designed the concept and planned the bottom of the lift entrance from the garage. The glass shaft went up to the front door level via the garage roof to carefully meet with a specially designed level walkway from the front of the house.

All their lifts are specifically tailored to the required use and surroundings, but for a full list of the type of lifts they can supply please visit their website at www.access-lifts.co.uk or telephone 0800 65 252 65. You can also follow them on Twitter.

Whilst visiting the Dorset coast on holiday, they spotted an advert for Access Lifts and contacted them immediately, whereupon Rob Edwards, Access’s MD arranged a site visit. Nestled deep within the hills the house was located in a breath-taking part of the world, but was also very remote in a picturesque-but mountainous area! Never phased by such things, Rob gave the best solution to his clients who decided on a bespoke Italian glass lift. Equipped with the latest technology, this lift provided everything they needed, giving

Meetings then took place between the local builder, Rob and the clients to agree the materials to be used, how they would achieve this feat of engineering and to ensure the job was aesthetically pleasing, blending sympathetically with the beautiful surroundings. Rob Edwards said “The whole project took two weeks from start to finish and although the location was very isolated, the clients were a dream to work with.

DIVERSE ABILITIES CELEBRATE THEIR 60TH ANNIVERSARY 60 Years of Making a Difference (1955 - 2015) Diverse Abilities is the only charity in Dorset that supports children and adults with profound physical and learning disabilities, and their families, through a range of services.

The beginning – by Phyllis Edwards My second daughter Marilyn was born on 1 October 1948. She was born severely disabled but this wasn’t recognised by the medical profession until she was nearly two years old, and at the time told ‘to put her away she will only be a cabbage’. When Marilyn was four years old, she was walking fairly well, had learnt to pick up a cup and drink, and could feed herself by placing her thumb alongside the spoon. She was very hyperactive, couldn’t concentrate and could only speak a few words. With no help, it was an impossible situation, so my husband and I agreed she should be admitted to Coldeast Mental Hospital, but on the very same day we had to go and sit in front of a Magistrates Court, where the question was asked, do you want this to happen to your daughter? I wanted to scream out “no we don’t but what are you going to do to help her”? I knew the answer.

Centre. To ensure the centre could be built as quickly as possible, parents of children that attended the centre helped build the school after a full day’s work. Once open the centre Langside catered for 12 children at this time and employed a matron, state registered nurse, a qualified teacher and a physiotherapist.

Swinging sixties In the early 1960s the demands of the Langside facilities increased so fast that an additional class and therapy room, coupled with a toilet block and storage space were soon needed. In 1968, the centre was registered as an independent school by the Department of Education and Science. In turn the centre was named Langside School in 1972.

Psychedelic 70s After the construction of Langside, it was decided there was a need for somewhere adults could move onto once they reached 19 years of age. In 1967 land was purchased in Talbot Drive, Poole, for a residential home to accommodate adults, over the age of 16, and provide care as they grew older. In 1972 the build commenced and was named Edward House, after the founder Phyllis.

Booming 80s One day I decided to write just a short letter to the Bournemouth Daily Echo… I received no replies so had another go and wrote a second letter. This time I was successful and nine people replied and so it began… Within two months a group formed for parents intent on providing better opportunities for children with physical and learning disabilities.

In March 1988, a bungalow was purchased at Kinsbourne Avenue near Ensbury Park to provide respite care for children aged 2 – 19 years so parents could have a much needed break. The property had four bedrooms, two bathrooms, a lounge, dining room and hall. Up to five children were able to be cared for at any one time.

The Nineties Nifty fifties


Within a year of the second letter being sent, the first committee of the Society was formed. In February 1956 the first centre opened in Stafford Road in Bournemouth and the Bournemouth, Poole & District Spastics Society was formed. It was run by Miss Honnieford and voluntary staff two days a week and six children attended the centre.

In 1992 the Society was fortunate to be given the opportunity to purchase a plot of land in Manor Avenue, which included a redundant church, parsonage and wooden building. At the same time, the charity was informed that it was to receive a legacy of just over £150,000. The committee moved quickly and became the owners of the St Barnabas site and appealed for donations.

It soon become apparent that there was a need for larger premises so in 1959 a centre was constructed on Langside Avenue in Poole, named the Langside

The church was then turned into today’s adult day centre – Barnabas – and opened in September 1994 to provide a creative and sociable environment for

Marilyn and Phyllis

1970s first residents at Edward House

25 students aged between 18-77. Number 19 Manor Avenue, located next to Barnabas, was turned into a registered home in 1994 and four people that the charity supported moved in. During 1995 Smithers moved to 17 Manor Avenue from Kinsbourne Avenue. It now catered for seven children up to the age of 19 and each child had an individual care package to meet their unique need. They also ran day care sessions for pre-school children. In 1997 the charity was re-named Dorset Scope.

The Noughties to now… Between 2003 and 2005 those supported in Edward House moved into their own homes to be supported 24/7 by the charity’s team. The first official supported living bungalow opened with Graeme and Simon moving in, who are both supported by the charity still today. In June 2005 the last residents of Edward House moved into their own supported living bungalow and Edward House closed in 2006. Additional children services evolved during the noughties, starting with Shapes in 2005 – providing support to children in their home and out in the community, plus Project My Time and Term Time providing activities to children with disabilities during the school holidays and after school from 2007. In 2010 the charity also changed its name to Diverse Abilities Plus following a consultation with people the charity supported. During the same year two local organisations supporting those with disabilities joined the charity - Disability Wessex that offer advice and advocacy and Coping with Chaos, providing activities after school and in the holidays, a youth club and activities children with disabilities and their siblings. During 2012 Phyllis was awarded a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Wessex Charity Awards for founding the charity back in 1955. The award also acknowledged how the charity has changed many people’s lives and evolved into supporting hundreds of children and adults, and their families, in Dorset.

Now Over the past 60 years the charity has changed the lives of hundreds of children and adults, helping them to gain greater confidence and independence through the provision of a lifetime of education, opportunities and support. Diverse Abilities remains dedicated to supporting their needs today and the needs they will have tomorrow while enabling them to experience a lifetime of opportunities and challenges.

JOIN THE COUNTRY CLUB Country style’s surely one of the most timeless, adaptable and familyfriendly looks around, with its emphasis on comfort and informality. Even if you don’t live in a picture book cottage adorned with roses, a stately home or a cabin set in the woods, you can still embrace rustic chic. Well-loved furniture (a distressed finish is an asset), natural materials and interesting textures are vital ingredients. Then all that’s needed is a little flair to choose a look which perfectly suits your rooms.


“I love a traditional, timeless country look and all the charm that comes with it,” says Samantha Parish, interior design account manager at Hypnos Beds. “By using a selective colour palette of soft neutrals, mixed with darker, woodland greens and river blues, you can create a stunning country lodge-style that’s luxurious and homely in equal measure. Play around with different looks and enjoy a pastoral scene no matter the view outside.”

Blooming Country Nature’s palette and floral designs are the classic decor choice and will create a fresh, colourful interior that brings the outdoors in. “Once the preserve of the mock-Tudor brigade, country style is fast becoming a multi-faceted look, which is increasingly finding its way into diverse types of property,” says Alison Cork, founder of online interiors company Within. “Florals and toiles are making a comeback, and these can look decorative and feminine set against white-washed walls, or will soften a slightly more macho scheme featuring exposed brick work and wooden beams. “There’s no end to the versatility of country, which is why it’s endlessly popular and one of the easiest and most affordable schemes to create.”

GET THE LOOK: Laura Ashley’s synonymous with country style, with interpretations to suit every taste. Its Aviary Garden design of delicate leaf and birds, currently reduced online, is truly charming. Wallpaper, £19.50 a roll, Bed Set (Double), £48, and Aviary Garden Apple Ready Made Curtains, from £47.50 (made to measure also available). An Aga’s surely an essential for a traditional country cottage and a light pink Rose shade has now been added to colour choices for the iconic range cooker, which starts from £4,995. PASTORAL TOUCHES: A Pink Large Floral Lantern, £9 from the At Home With Ashley Thomas range, Debenhams. Foxglove Cushion, £14.99, Wyevale Garden Centres (available at larger stores from the end of July).

Vintage Country Play with texture, scale and well-worn finishes for a look which is relaxed and eclectic.


“The country aesthetic can be achieved in many different ways, however, I prefer country with a vintage, rustic feel,” says Jenny Seabrook, buyer at Topps Tiles. Mixing different textures and materials helps create a subtle layered look, whilst textured linear tiles create a brick effect, perfect for recreating an exposed barn wall. “For a more traditional style, opt for a pattern and play around with dimensions and different layouts to inject a modern twist. Arts and Crafts-inspired floral and encaustic designs work perfectly with French-style wooden furniture with a distressed finish.” GET THE LOOK: Opt for a natural palette of shades, ranging from soft browns to mustards and creams. Archivo Lattice Tiles, inspired by hand-painted terracotta tiles, partnered with plain Archivo tiles, both £95.36 a square metre, Topps Tiles, could look stunning on a feature wall or in a rustic kitchen. Scandinavians are masters of country style and Swedish designer, Sandra Isaksson, proves it, with her highly appropriate woodland village design Tingleby Wallpaper, £49 a roll, Unique & Unity. Traditional painted furniture is so attractive and Barker & Stonehouse’s Aurora collection is painted in a subtle shade of driftwood and limestone white, and as an added bonus is currently reduced. An Aurora 7 Drawer Tall Chest, was £725, is now £499. Add extra seating with the store’s Urchin Knitted Pouffe, £69. Accessorise with wool cushions and throws from Yorkshire-based company Bronte by Moon. Multiblock Cushion, in mustard, £49.95. Storage for everything, from logs to toys, is essential and a Natural Hessian Basket Set, £100, The Farthing, would be perfect for keeping floors clear of clutter. PASTORAL TOUCHES: Animals are surely essential in a bucolic setting, but there’s no need to go hunting to bag a stag trophy when online interiors company Within has a Stag’s Head Lamp, £95. Give stable room to a Horses Head with a distressed white finish, £59, Barker & Stonehouse.

New Country This fresh reinvention of country conjures a calm, uncluttered, refined atmosphere, allowing beautifully-crafted furniture and possessions to star. The Aurora collection, including the Aurora 7 Drawer Tall Chest (PA Photo/Handout.)

“New country makes a historical style statement which is quintessentially British,” enthuses John Sims-Hilditch, managing director of furniture specialists, Neptune. “There’s a comfortable confidence about this look that makes it easy to live with and, because there’s no rigidity or rules for this interpretation, there’s the freedom to mix old with new, and contrast tradition with innovation. “It’s a nod to tradition, yet gracefully chic, so you can celebrate our cultural heritage happy in the knowledge that your rooms will look bang up-to-date.” GET THE LOOK: Tongue and groove panelling or walls painted in soft stone or cream shades are a perfect soothing backdrop. Neptune’s statement pieces would dress any room in appropriate style. My favourite’s a Harrogate Extending Table, in Lily, £1,140, which seats six to 10 people, and a matching dining chair, £215. Delineate an eating area with lighting - try an overhanging Tennyson Pendant light, £85, also from Neptune.

For stately home grandeur, look no further than a John Lewis Croft Collection Melrose Grand Sofa, in Darwen French Grey, £1,800. The Croft Collection also features unfussy furniture in pale, natural and cleanly painted woods. An Atelier Bar Table, £499. Zone an area with the Croft Braid Rug, in Ivory, from £190.

He discovered that the USA & a few European countries had been recycling and remanufacturing waste plastics into alternative timber products for many years, instead of throwing it all into landfill! Over time, slowly but surely he developed a few basic products in the form of planks and posts and very soon he began to receive interest from people wanting to know more about this revolutionary product that is both an environmentally friendly alternative to normal timber and sustainable which means it will save them a lot of money in the long term!

WHAT CAN THE PLASTIC BE USED FOR ? The manufactured plastic has many practical and very useful properties.

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



Citroen’s mid-sized C4 has proved a popular family car for some years, and even with strong competition in the sector, stills competes with rivals thanks in part to its superb range of engines, writes NICK FLETCHER. There are several petrol and diesel choices with outputs ranging from 90 to 155 hp. All offer a good blend of nippy performance with frugal fuel consumption. The C4 range starts at £14,250 and the flagship models top £21,000. My recent C4 test model was a mid-range Flair Pure Tech with a terrific 1.2 litre 3-cylinder turbo-petrol engine offering an impressive 130 hp. Priced at £18, 245, this model has a 0-60 mph time of 10.8 seconds and a top speed of 124 mph. Fuel economy is very good at 58.9 mpg combined. Underway, this C4 proves smooth and responsive, with a light easy driving feel. Ride comfort is good though some rougher surfaces can make it rather lumpy. Seating is excellent and the cabin is spacious though taller rear-seat occupants will find leg-room slightly cramped. The boot is a good usable shape with 408 litres of space available, and much more if you drop the rear seats, though there is a load step rather than a flat floor. Equipment levels throughout the range are quite generous and the Flair Pure Tech test model had stop-start, cruise control with speed limiter, rear parking sensor, dual zone air-conditioning, 7 inch touch screen, Bluetooth, USB port, and multi-airbags among its array of features. There were also various options fitted which included panoramic sunroof, keyless entry and start, and metallic paint. I found the C4 a very likeable car, easy to live with on a day to day basis.

The Subaru Forester is a serious contender in the gutsy 4WD sector with impressive off road capability. Yet it offers very civilised driving on the tarmac too and is very well equipped for the money, writes NICK FLETCHER. Prices start at £24,995 and there are petrol and diesels engine available, all with permanent four wheel drive. All Foresters have twin front and side airbags, plus curtain airbags and active anti-whiplash headrests, and even the entry-level models include air-con, heated front seats, 17-inch alloy wheels, Bluetooth and a USB port. For many buyers the entry and mid-range models will be best value, but in this sector, there are those who want more luxury and even more kit, and for them the range-topping XT model is the answer. It was the model I tested recently and for £30,995 you get climate and cruise controls, larger alloys, sat-nav, leather upholstery with powered and heated seats, a powered sunroof and features such as auto wipers and a reversing camera.

The test version came with a 2.0 litre turbo-petrol engine packing a hefty 240 hp and impressively quick for a vehicle in this heavyweight class. The 0-60 mph time is just 7.5 seconds, top speed 137 mph.Combined fuel economy is 33.2 mpg but I actually exceeded that with more judicial use of the accelerator pedal. The car also had CVT transmission which was excellent for city traffic. Ride quality is very good at higher speeds and over bumpy roads, and body control and grip on cornering is poised and assured. Overall, the Forester drives and behaves like a family car in most situations. The Forester’s main plus points are its nice combination of driving dynamics which can impress both on and off road, its generous standard equipment levels – and Subaru’s great reputation for reliability and robust built quality.

TURBO POWER LEXUS IS The Lexus IS saloon will adopt petrol turbo power for the first time with the introduction of the new IS 200t. It is the third model to be announced with the new Lexus engine, following the NX 200t crossover, which is already on sale, and the future new RX 200t SUV. In the IS the 2.0-litre unit will deliver 241bhp and maximum torque of 350Nm. Top speed of 143mph driving the rear wheels through an eight-speed Sport Direct Shift automatic transmission that was originally developed for the RC F high-performance coupe. Nought to 62mph acceleration can be achieved in seven seconds, while average fuel consumption is from 40.4mpg.

In the IS 200t the turbo engine is matched to an eightspeed Sport Direct Shift transmission with paddle shifts ñ a unit originally developed for the RC F high-performance coupe. The rear-wheel drive IS 200t is the first Lexus saloon to vary gear shifting in line with G-forces. The transmission automatically downshifts under hard braking on the approach to a corner, then hold a lower gear through the bend for best control, and then selects the most suitable gear on exit to give the driver greater throttle response. The IS 200t will be available to order from September; UK specifications and prices will be announced nearer the on-sale date.




SILVER WHEELS What do they do? Silver Wheels opened its doors on the Ferndown Industrial Estate on the 15th September this 2012. The company has been formed to provide high quality wheel refurbishment to both members of the public and to the trade in the Dorset area. We took one of our cars down to see what they could do and the results were astounding, their workshop is spotless and the service they provide is fast and professional. The great thing is you can change the whole look of your car without the cost of changing your car, just change the colour of the wheels. Although the process required to achieve this is very specialized, Silver Wheels can also complete a full set of wheels in the same day! Ensuring that their customers are never without their valuable asset for long. Flaky paint, corroded

wheels, kerbing and dents are all repairable in their state of the art facility. Repair of buckled and cracked wheels is also available.

The process They strip the wheels of all existing paint and then examine the wheels for any defects, which are then repaired. The wheels are then prepped for painting and then receive up to four coats of paint, including a crucial top coat acrylic lacquer. This is the hardest wearing of all paints and this allows Silver Wheels to offer a full 12 month warranty against paint defects. Silver Wheels aim is to provide its customers with a wide range of finishes and a high level of service. We wonšt let our customers leave until they are happy. They have a full range of samples in their showroom, for you to examine and to make your selection from. Their experienced staff are there to guide you and are happy to talk through your ideas or suggest some of their own. They try hard to match the wheel, to the car, to the owner. They hope that you will be amazed by what they can offer.

Diamond Cutting Wheels manufactured with a diamond cut finish are becoming more common, with most of main manufacturers either offering them as upgrades or as a standard option. A diamond cut wheel can be identified by the polished finish on the front face of the spoke and another colour on the side face of the spoke. This second colour can be a silver, which can then make the polished face hard to spot. Refurbishment of a diamond cut wheel is carried out in the normal way, up to the point that the colour has been applied to the wheel. Then it is loaded into a specialist machine, that lathes the front faces of the spokes using diamond tipped tools – hence the term diamond cutting. Silver wheels are the first company in Dorset to be able to offer this service all completed in house. Turn-around time is generally 2 days. Costings are determined by wheel size. Please contact Silver Wheels if you would like to discuss your project. 165



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

THE DANCING JUG 20 Post Office Road, City Centre, Bournemouth, BH1 1BA

Our second round ding ding at the Dancing Jug, and this time we returned for a taste of summer. Perhaps the most surprising of all food reviews, the Jug previously stunned me with their delicious sausage and mash. Having expected in all honesty a pretty bog standard meal, I was taken aback by how wrong I was. This time around was no exception, except my beginners negative thoughts were nowhere to be seen. On what felt like one of the hottest days yet, glorifying in the sun, the Dancing Jug could not have seemed like a better idea, especially as it was a Friday. This time on the menu tender BBQ meats, leafy salads, “proper burgers” as the boys liked to put it, and plentiful platters laden with cheese, cured meats, and all those traditional British ploughman’s accompaniments. Ciaran and myself opted to share the cheese platter, which was not just your typical, blue cheese and cheddar. Oh no, we had beautifully browned halloumi, Camembert baked in its box, oozing and suitably accompanied with warm bread rolls. The king of cheese platters, you are in for a real treat. Washed down with one or maybe two glasses of red wine, wow I am in my happy place. Drunk on cheese and wine on a sunny Friday, what could be better?


The top dog of all platters had to go to ‘The Big Jug Platter”. Carrying the weight of char grilled Piri Piri

chicken, spiced lamb chop, a juicy steak, handmade sausage and a beef burger topped with cheese you can see why I’ve named this platter so. Perfect for a feast for four or two very hungry people, and accompanied with the talk of the table chunky sweet potato wedges and a sharing salad it went down a storm. Our head of sales Ross even went as far as to say, “this is my favourite review, that was lush”. If this is a bit of an overload, or you’ve not persuaded a partner to share with you then you can always go for the mixed grill platter. Very similar including the chicken, sausage and steak it’s the perfect mini feast for one. Our vegetarian picked a beautiful salad of butternut squash, pomegranate, feta, apple and cranberries. A crisp salad, bedazzled with flecks of pomegranate pink, it painted a colourful picture of health. Flush with happiness and contentment we rather lazily sipped on our drinks, keen to stay put for as long as we could. The Dancing Jug, you have done it again, another super review. Good food, good wine and a thriving atmosphere buzzing with Friday goers. See you next time, round 3?

RIVERFORD ORGANIC FARMS Riverford Organic Food, Vegetables, Fruit, Meat www.riverford.co.uk This week, House Magazine were gifted a vegetarian recipe box from Riverford Organic farms to trial and review. Not a particularly competent cook myself, often whipping up simplistic meals comprising of few ingredients, the prospect of cooking something more challenging was daunting. I realise it’s just cooking, you can adjust it to your taste, and it should be enjoyable. This simply is not the case for me. I find cooking incredibly stressful and I must admit I become quite volatile in the kitchen. I don’t enjoy it, yet I don’t want anyone else to intervene. Terrible combination. Our Riverford box arrived on Tuesday morning and having never order any sort of recipe or food box before I was very impressed. Food was carefully divided up into compartments storing the fridge products all in a sealable cool bag, which was recyclable and reusable, like all the packaging. Fragrant with herbs and spices it’s a delightful box to receive first thing of a morning. The attention to detail is commendable. A miniature bottle of red wine vinegar carefully labeled, a small pot containing a sprinkling of flour and nutmeg nestled in its own perfectly formed container. Quite frankly it’s adorable, and fabulous considering how much you would have to spend on buying the entire bottle of vinegar or bag of flour.

fraiche and courgette salad. Following the simple stepby-step recipe guide, for a novice like me it was clear and concise. Fast forwarding to the end result, my empanadas resembled a miniature version of what should have been plump pastries, sadly split with filling spilling out. As untidy as they did look, they tasted delicious. The process to get there however was not delicious in the slightest. I have to be honest there was a lot of yelling abuse at my boyfriend to leave the kitchen and I was slaving away for what felt like an eternity. After work and returning home from the gym, for me the last thing I want is to spend a laborious amount of time in the kitchen. The recipe requires so many bits of faffing from stripping around 30 chard leaves from their stalks, to separately blanching the stalks then the leaves, and finally removing the broad beans from their pod, then blanching them before squeezing them out of their shells. Fresh yes and I am a health freak, but at 8.30pm at night and I’m still putting the final touches on dinner, my appetite having now run away, its not practical. I have decided that as much as these recipe boxes are fantastic value, for me they are unsuitable. They require someone with a little more patience, and enjoyment for cooking, and plentiful time on their hands of an evening. Perhaps I should have skipped the gym, but I shouldn’t have to.

Dividing up the recipes between us, I took home the broad bean and chard empanadas with mint crème

A complete contrast to my experience Jon picked the Caponata. A traditional Italian tomato based vegetable

dish. He had a much more pleasurable experience, turning up to work the next day with photos of his artistic dinner, which he would very much like me to ensure I place his name beside. See below. (I’m sensing he would prefer not to be associated my empanadas). A beautiful plate of food packed with flavour although a little too salty from the capers, Jon was impressed. Taking 45mins from kitchen to table, he served up a wholesome dinner for him and his wife to enjoy. Vicky chose to cook the Pad Thai with Tofu, an authentic dish packed full of delicate flavours and pricked with chili. Vicky told that her meal was very enjoyable and she felt a sense of achievement serving up a colourful plate of food that very much resembled the image of the recipe card. Although this dish was thoroughly enjoyed her opinion was that this was a meal for the weekend. Requiring extensive prepping and multiple utensils, the washing up was vast. As a mid week meal its probably a bit too time consuming, taking Vicky over 45 minutes to prep the ingredients prior to cooking. Riverford has wowed us all with their fresh organic ingredients, carefully though through packaging, presentation and concise recipe cards, which we all found to be tasty. A fantastic price considering the calibre of cooking, but I would suggest a weekend treat, or for keen cooks with plentiful time of an evening.


HEALTH & FITNESS Charlie Lowe from the fastest growing bootcamp ‘Wassmuffin Fitter Than fit’ talks Fitness, well being, healthy eating and of course Thai Boxing.

To lose weight, you need to burn more calories than you consume. Exercise, especially intense cardiovascular types that utilize the major muscle groups, burns a lot of calories. Thai boxing qualifies as a moderate to high-intensity cardiovascular workout that burns calories and helps you build muscle tone. Whether you are Thai boxing in a private studio or participate with us at Fitter Than Fit Boot Camp, Thai boxing can help you lose weight. FEATURES OF FITTER THAN FIT Thai boxing combines moves to deliver a total body workout. Classes usually follow a format involving a 5 to 10 minute warmup, punching and kicking drills interspersed with athletic conditioning and a five minute stretch and cool-down. The movements are repetitive to hone agility and speed, as well as proper execution of movement. ITS NEVER TOO LATE TO GET FIT, THE HARDEST PART FOR MOST PEOPLE IS MAKING THE DECISION AND TAKING THE FIRST STEP HERE ARE A FEW BENEFITS THAT MAY HELP YOU TAKE THAT STEP • • • • • •

QUIT TALKING START DOING TESTIMONIAL FROM KATHRYN “I’m writing my testimonial from the Suwit Muay Thai camp in Thailand and there is no way I would have ever got here without the help of Michael and Charlie. I was one of the first members of bootcamp and that first session was traumatising, I couldn’t jog/run and no way could I manage a press up - even on my knees. I kept returning as everyone was always so welcoming and encouraging. I started with just 1 day a week as it took me that long to recover and eventually ended up being so addicted Id go at least 5 times a week occasional going twice in one day. I needed motivation and this was the only place I found it, I’d tried various different classes before and nothing every stuck for longer than a week. Bootcamp is always so varied and I can’t stress enough about how nice the people are, I hated gyms because I found them intimidating but here you feel instantly welcome. You are always encouraged and pushed to what they know you are capable of regardless of continuing to say ‘I cant’. My fitness improved dramatically and now over 2 years on I have been able to complete 2 tough mudders, kicking butt out here in Thailand and the fittest I have ever been. Much love for both instructors they are amazing.”
