GOADSBY’S GREEN FINGERS The Goadsby office in Poole previously donated £250 to Sylvan Infant School in Parkstone in order for them to purchase new plants for their school playground. On 17th July members of the Goadsby team spent the afternoon helping with the planting. Mark Sanderson, Divisional Director for Goadsby, commented “at Goadsby we are always keen to be involved with the local community. My son is a pupil of Sylvan Infant School and on the school run we noticed the empty planters. When I spoke to the head, Mr Walsh, about his plans for the playground he commented how they are always interested in receiving support from local businesses and would welcome any help we can offer. Goadsby were more than happy to donate the money for plants and materials and also help with the planting.” Goadsby have a number of properties available for sale and let in the area. If you have a property and would like an up to date market appraisal please contact Mark on 01202 686555.

THE RIVERFORD VEG BOX NAMED ETHICAL PRODUCT OF THE DECADE AT THE OBSERVER ETHICAL AWARDS

Riverford founder Guy Watson collected the award from Editor of The Observer John Mulholland and journalist and BBC presenter Lucy Siegle at a ceremony at the V&A museum in London. “We’ve always known that our veg boxes are very special. We’ve a real community of customers in this area – they come to us as they want real food that has been produced with

The LivinRoom Orangery is the latest addition to Swain & Rands ever-growing range of home improvement products. The LivinRoom Orangery is the best of both worlds, combining the light and sky views of a conservatory with the walls and ceiling of an extension. The LivinRoom Orangery is a truly multifunctional home extension, creating a pleasant and relaxing space. Alternatively it can be used as a perfect family room. The LivinRoom Orangery uses the well proven Ultraframe Classic roof at its heart, and a well-engineered internal framework is added, then plastered, to give a perimeter ceiling all the way round. The LivinRoom Orangery can be used in a range of shapes from Victorian, Georgian, Lean-to and Gables. The LivinRoom Orangery is also suitable to be used with box gutters, meaning there is almost no limit to the design you can have.

Director of Hairdressing, Anya took to the stage along with Training Manager, Craig Davies to present the awards to the upcoming stylists working towards their hairdressing qualifications either at one of Francesco Group’s renowned academies or as part of a college partnership with Francesco Group.

Local Riverford businesses are celebrating after winning a hugely prestigious title. In a national awards ceremony that honoured the peace-making campaigning of Yoko Ono, and grass roots communities working to produce green energy, veg box company Riverford was named the Ethical Product of the Decade. The award, which was decided by public vote, is designed to honour the retailer, designer, brand or shop that makes it easier for people to live more ethically.

respect. It’s fantastic to have Riverford’s work recognised with such a prestigious award.” “We are all beyond thrilled to have been given this title; we were up against some truly deserving competition such as the Fairtrade banana and Divine chocolate, whom we support and respect and who would have been very worthy winners. For almost 30 years, I have aimed to use the business to make the world a slightly better place, one veg box at a time. Put simply we want to give people good, fresh, flavoursome, ethically-produced food that they can trust, produced and delivered in a way that gives a fair deal to farmers, animals, customers, staff and the environment.

To further enhance the usability of the LivinRoom Orangery, down lighters and speakers can be built into the perimeter roof, so the homeowner can truly stamp their mark on this living space. A further option is the external Cornice aluminium guttering which adds to the overall external visual effect of this magnificent home improvement. For a modern, contemporary crossover between a conservatory and extension then the must have product is a Swain & Rands LivinRoom Orangery. To find out more about this product, or any home improvement that Swain & Rands can offer feel free to contact the office on 01202 536 422, email info@swainandrands.co.uk or visit www.swainandrands.co.uk

As far as we are concerned, the best things in life are shared, and food, good food, is the greatest example of this, and we want it to be available to everyone. It is very rewarding to have had this accolade from the Observer.”

ADDING VALUE TO YOUR HOME When selling your house, or even if you plan to enjoy it a while longer, there are a number of key ways to add value to your home, without building up or out. Here are some easy upgrades you can carry out without having to get a second mortgage. Front Door – a new front door with shiny fittings sets the tone for the whole house. You’re enhancing your security and insulation as well as improving the look of your home, so this can often be an excellent investment. Do choose a suitable style for the age of your property and keep it cleaned and polished for viewings. Also have a look at your wall/ fence and front gate - these are the first things your buyers will notice (it’s all about the kerb appeal!) Garden – ensure that your garden is styled for the right target market. A family may want decking and large area of lawn, while a garden for an older generation may prefer well-stocked borders and pots (you can off course take these with you when you move).

Shutters – because these are custom fitted to your windows, they are a fixture and of course sold with the house (curtains and blinds are often negotiable). Shutters and electric gates are actually two key indicators used by property surveyors to indicate an area ‘on the up’. There are few potential buyers who would object to the practicality or attractiveness of shutters (choose a pale cream or white), and they cost on a par with a set of custom-made curtains. They suit both contemporary and period properties and are a great way of adding privacy, filtering light and hiding less than perfect windows or views.

cleaned before you go on the market, but if you have busy or dark carpets, or a patchwork of different colours in different rooms, then look at laying new carpet throughout. It will give your home the feel of a brand new house and will not cost as much as you might think. For more advice on updating or improving your home call Helen at Coral Interiors. 01202 798837 Helen Winter, Professional Interior Design and Home Staging Expert.

“WE LEAD WHERE OTHERS FOLLOW!” Lloyds are excited to announce their latest edition 34 of the Lloyds ‘Living the dream’ magazine is now available to collect from the Lilliput or Canford Cliffs offices. Showcasing luxury properties for sale, cars, boats and fashion plus much more, in our opinion something every coffee table should have!

If you wish to advertise in the Autumn/ Winter edition contact them now to avoid disappointment and guarantee a space.

Decoration – If you haven’t decorated for a few years, or there are obvious scuffs or chips, it’s definitely worth a fresh coat of paint or wallpaper. Don’t go for magnolia as it can look a bit cheap - opt for white, pale grey or another neutral. You don’t have to be too bland, choose a funky or sophisticated wallpaper that you love, for an eye-catching feature wall. Carpets – if you have pets or a large family, your carpet may have lost its lustre. At the very least have carpets professionally

CATH KIDSTON SUPPORTS HOTEL EXCLUSIVELY FOR CANCER PATIENTS A unique relationship between the worldrenowned homeware firm, Cath Kidston, and a hotel in Bournemouth, exclusively for Cancer patients, will provide guests this summer with a designer beach hut. The Grove, a holiday hotel for cancer patients and those with life threatening illnesses, now have an eye-catching beach hut, designed and decorated by fashion designer Cath Kidston, for the use of their guests. Bournemouth is famed for its brightly coloured beach huts, particularly those close to the main pier. However, now just five of the beach huts, one of which belongs to The Grove, have been wrapped in a selection of Cath Kidston’s iconic prints as part of the firm’s charity campaign, #randomactsofkidston. The council’s Bournemouth Beach Offices also played a part in suggesting which beach huts were chosen.

Manager Brenden Howard has said: “Every moment together counts when your loved ones are facing such a battle, so we want our guests to enjoy their stay as much as possible. We are lucky to have this fabulous location adjacent to seven miles of award-winning beaches – they are easily accessible by wheelchair, too. A beach hut is ideal for those who want to have a classic, old-fashioned British beach holiday. It is wonderful of someone with the reputation of Cath Kidston to give up their time to personally support The Grove Hotel. We would also like to thank Bournemouth Beach Offices who continually support our efforts to give our guests the opportunity to enjoy Bournemouth’s amazing beaches free of charge – from free lift passes to the use of beach facilities”. The Grove Hotel have been providing those that suffer from cancer and life threatening illnesses with bespoke

holidays for almost five years; enabling families to create happy memories with their loved ones. Situated on Bournemouth beach, the beach hut is the icing on the cake of a truly unique and wonderful experience at The Grove Hotel.

Enjoy a three course meal, be entertained and help raise vital funds for Diverse Abilities while having a lovely evening with friends and family. Join them for this glitz and glam event – definitely not to be missed. It would be advisable to book early as tables are limited and going very fast.

200MILE ‘LE TOUR DE GOADSBY’ SUCCESSIN AID OF WESSEX HEART BEAT

MAYOR OF CHRISTCHURCH VISITS RENAISSANCE RETIREMENT’S FLEUR-DE-LIS RETIREMENT DEVELOPMENT

Four members of Goadsby estate agents successfully completed a mammoth 200 mile charity bike ride across three counties and over two days, visiting Goadsby offices along the way.

Directors from the Ringwood-based retirement company showed the mayor around the Fleur-de-Lis development which is situated between the high street and Druitt Gardens.

Gavin Harris- Bournemouth Associate Director, David HardwickBroadstone Associate Director, Chris Snell- Wareham Manager and Jon Winson- Residential Director, endured an eventful 2 days which included rain, sun, fog, extremely hilly terrain and two crashes! Gavin comments, “I am delighted to say that all four of us completed the ride with the support of all our 25 offices and the kind donations received. To date we have raised over £2700 of sponsorship for our charity WESSEX HEART BEAT and we are hoping for more to follow now that we have completed the challenge. We have all been training hard over the past 2-3 months and it has been a great achievement for us all.’’ If you would like to show your support you can make a donation to Goadsby’s chosen charity for the year, WESSEX HEART BEAT, simply by visiting www.justgiving. com/letourdegoadsby

The Mayor of Christchurch, Councillor Frederick Neale, took a VIP tour of Renaissance Retirement’s landmark new development in Christchurch.

Fleur-de-Lis has been built on the site of the town’s old Cornfactor building which was originally the central hub of the district’s corn market dating back to the 1800s. The mayor was particularly impressed with the glazed links which afford beautiful views of Druitt Gardens and the high street and high specification that home owners can expect. Features include fully integrated Neff appliances throughout, granite work tops with Ovolo mouldings, luxury showers with digitally controlled thermostats, Premium Villeroy Boch sanitaryware and Porcelanosa wall and floor tiles.

“I’m very impressed with the overall look and feel of Fleur-de-Lis. Despite the loss of a heritage building, I’m pleased to see that Renaissance Retirement has used some of the existing bricks of the old Cornfactor building in the current development as well as aspects of its design. Renaissance has built a development that now links the high street with Druitt Gardens.”

view of the stunning 19th century spire of the Christchurch Christian Centre. In order to achieve its vision of preserving this heritage view, Renaissance Retirement has removed two units from the centre of the building and replaced them with a glazed link through which the church spire is visible from Druitt Gardens.

Renaissance Retirement development director, Nick Watkins, added: “We are delighted to welcome the mayor of Christchurch to Fleur-de-Lis and thank him for his time in his busy schedule.” Fleur-de-Lis’ perfect location is at the heart of the company’s collection of 26 new retirement apartments located to the rear of Christchurch High Street, overlooking Druitt Gardens. The apartments will provide luxurious living spaces ideally suited for downsizers looking to maintain a quality standard of independent living in the region. The building itself has also been conscientiously designed to preserve the

TEAMS HAVE A KNOCKOUT TIME FOR DIVERSE ABILITIES

Damian Garcia is the chief photographer at Premier Property Photography. He has been a photographer for twenty years and it is his passion. Damian bought his first camera back in the film days before digital cameras were the norm and was fascinated by the process of capturing and taking images. Needless to say the first rolls of film that he took were not that successful but he found the whole image taking process fascinating and set about learning how to take good images.

Dorset disability’s charity, Diverse Abilities, has successfully held its third ‘It’s a Knockout’ challenge at Lodmoor Country Park, in Weymouth, with 22 teams taking part in many wet and wacky games raising over £15,000.

Damian and the rest of the team at Premier Property Photography look forward to working with you to capture the maximum potential of your house and to make your sale a success.

Sharon Wells, events fundraiser at Diverse Abilities, said: “We were really pleased with the turnout at the event and it is the most number of teams we have had take part in the past three years, which is great. We have already had a number of the teams interested in next year’s event so if you think you can take on the crazy challenges, get in touch! Everyone that took part had a great time and as well as having fun were actively supporting the work of Diverse Abilities.”

The key elements to good photography are the successful use of light and composition, skills that he has learnt over the past twenty years. It is the use of these elements that differentiate the service that they offer through Premier Property Photography from those of their competitors, to show your home to potential buyers in the best possible light and to make your property stand out.

Before

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. 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. 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 endeavour to maintain it.

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

After

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

Colourbark We have now added Colourbark to our ever growing range of resin products. It is a completely nonbiodegradable coloured rubber bark which never requires replacing, is porous & a deterrent for animal fouling ie, cats! It’s Available in a variety of colours & can be laid in commercial & domestic park areas, borders or anywhere where usually use bark chippings or shingle . Price is on application. See website for more details of all Colourstone Resin Products. www.colour-stone.co.uk.

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.

Sandbanks Concierge

THE PROPERTY AND LIFESTYLE MANGERMENT COMPANY

About After moving to Poole to live in my family’s holiday home, I found I was spending a lot of time doing “could you just” jobs. Whether this was doing the meter readings, getting quotes from builders or waiting for parcels to be delivered, it occurred to me that we can’t be the only family that have those small yet time consuming issues. Sandbanks Concierge is designed to remove these annoyances for families so that they can fully appreciate this beautiful area.

Work We assist homeowners with the management and maintenance of their Dorset properties whether they live here full-time or for just a few weeks of the year. Our services enable our clients to concentrate on important matters such as family or work, whilst we devote our attention to ensuring that the home runs smoothly. From attending to alarms to servicing the boiler, we make sure the property is secure and much more; managing, maintaining and running every aspect of your home in a professional yet personal manner.

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

Should I put my property on the market in the summer? At this time of year we are often asked by potential vendors if they should wait until after the summer to put their houses on the market. People generally view the summer as a quiet period, with potential buyers being pre-occupied with having the children on school holidays, or even having their own local or foreign holidays. The truth is that while some buyers will have these distractions, there are still always very serious buyers looking to purchase. These can be first-time-buyers, landlords, retired buyers, and more importantly holiday home buyers that are still looking in earnest for their coastal property. Buyers returning from abroad or coming from other counties may be trying to buy a house in time for the start of the new school year in September.

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.

ASK THE EXPERT

A successful Dorset business

Aimee Ramage MARLA ANAEA Branch Manager, Burns Estates

MY CLIENTS OFTEN ASK ME WHAT THE FAVOURITE PART OF MY JOB IS. That’s a difficult question as I love everything about my role here at Burns. I love that every day is different. I absolutely adored every minute of our rebrand. From designing and creating the website to our wonderful new look. Not forgetting the launch of our sales and commercial divisions. It really has been an incredible year so far! I love going the extra mile & proving to my clients that I’m not a typical ‘estate agent’. Customer service is at the heart of everything we do. We listen to our clients and provide them with a bespoke service. One of my main passions is working with investors on projects. Whether they’re purchasing through us or another agency the service I provide is exactly the same. Whatever their budget I’ll take time to go through details including activity in the local marketplace which helps them with their decisions. We often retreat to the office after a busy morning / afternoon of viewings where we’re treated to bottomless cups of coffee by my lovely team. Then once their offer has been accepted the fun really starts. What do we need to do to make the property look amazing? Sometimes it might be as simple as a coat of paint and new carpets. On other occasions it will be a total renovation project and I’ll be involved from the outset. At the moment I’m lucky enough to be working closely with one of my portfolio Landlords on their very first renovation project. They are out of area investors who have mainly invested in new builds close to home. But since we’ve started working together and managing their properties in the local area day to day, they have decided to expand their portfolio with a mixture of freehold and leasehold properties all over Bournemouth & Poole. Their latest project is a gorgeous 4 bedroom family home in Southbourne. I visited the property before they put in an offer, and gave them my honest opinion on whether the property represented a good long term investment. My clients always rely on me to be 100% honest. My business is built on trust and transparency. The house needed a LOT of work, but it was a fantastic investment at the right price. We managed to get the property at a great price, then when the survey uncovered damp we asked for a further reduction which was agreed. If you don’t ask you don’t get! The purchase recently completed and works have begun. The damp has been treated, walls stripped back to bare plasterboard. Carpets removed and bathroom / kitchen taken out. It’s an empty shell. A canvas waiting for an artist to paint it. And that’s where I’m in my element. You can ask my advice on anything; which kitchen to put in. Whether to knock a wall down and make it an open plan kitchen / diner. For this particular house I’ve recommended they replace the shower room with a bathroom. To me this is just common sense; but perhaps it’s my years of experience. We’re on track to complete works over the summer and we already have lovely families interested in viewing. Whether you’re a new investor or an experienced developer / Landlord in need of a proactive and professional agency then look no further. Preferential rates available for portfolio landlords.

The Diary of Sharon Canning Move on Rentals

BUDGET FOR LANDLORDS? Well, what was the budget all about? Landlords definitely seemed to be on the agenda. One of the concerns that I am receiving lots of calls about is the mortgage interest being phased out by 2020. The summer finance bill will hopefully explain the finer detail. But here is my understanding of it. In your tax return presently, the interest part of your mortgage, which most Buy To let mortgages are interest only, can be deducted as an expense. In 2017, you will lose 25% and will be able to claim 75% of the mortgage expense. In 2018, you will lose 50% and can claim 50%. In 2019 you will lose 75% and can claim 25% and in 2020 you will lose 100% of the mortgage payment. However, the government will give back a relief, so in 2017 the 25% you lose in the mortgage payment you can claim at the basic tax rate of 20%. In 2018 50%, 2019 75% and 2020 100%. I will try and explain further. You receive £800 rent per month and your mortgage is £600, your profit is £200. £200 now (2015) at 20% tax means you will pay the taxman £40. In 2017 you lose 25% of the £600, meaning £800 less £450 mortgage (£600-25%) leaves a profit of £350. £350 x 20% tax is £70. The new relief back is £150 (the 25% deducted) £150 x 20% basic tax rate is £30. So, £70 less relief of £30 means the tax you pay is £40. (the same as now) In conclusion, if you are a basic tax rate payer, you will be no worst off or better off than you are presently. It will however make a difference to the 40% and 45% taxpayer. In 2020 on the same rental of £800 pcm and same mortgage payment of £600. The 40% taxpayer will pay £200 (up £120), so an extra £1,440 more per annum. The 45% taxpayer will pay £240 (up £150), an extra £1,800 more per annum. Definitely an ‘ouch’ if you are a landlord in these tax brackets and own more than one property. I do hope that helps. As said, the finer detail will be in the Summer Finance Bill. Good news though if you take lodgers or students, as they are increasing the tax free earnings from £4,250 to £7,500 per annum. If you let furnished properties, the 10% wear and tear will be replaced, no idea with what, but we should know in the Summer Finance Bill and will update you on when I know. On a sombre note, do you owe the taxman? Well, in the small print of the budget, the taxman will be able to dip into your bank account without permission if you owe more than £1,000. On a positive note, I am absolutely delighted to announce we have got through to the finals in the Venus Awards for PR and Marketing, which is fantastic and cements all the hard work we do on behalf of our clients (landlords and vendors) to sell or rent out their properties. Have a good week! Sharon

KITCHEN TRENDS

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

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

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

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

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

Neff hobs are available in sizes

The elegant door folds

from 60cm to 90cm in width

down and slides away.

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

HOME IMPROVEMENT

Home Cinema/Automation Installation A harmonious environment of technology and interior Un-used loft space? Why not convert it into your very own home cinema. A recent client visited the Living Store, Chancery Gate looking to improve his loft space. The desire to create a Games/Cinema room, but unsure of a plan of action. Living Technologies and Living Interiors were able to assist and draft a design to match his specification. The team worked together closely enlisting the help of all departments at ‘Living At Home’ to design a custom environment, loosely based on Living Technologies own demonstration suite. The AV system incorporates the brand New 85” Samsung UHD 4K TV, B&W in wall speakers and design conscious B&W Subwoofers. All this is matched with a range topping Yamaha AV receiver.

When approaching the specifics, Living Interiors detailed the request of a bar area, seating and a cloakroom, however this needed to be out of sight. The solution was to integrate a compact toilet with basin behind bespoke wall panelling. A harmonious environment of technology and interior has been derived to meet the brief. Curating wall panels to fit flush against the wall hides the sound system and allows the TV to sit perfectly within the wall. Going above and beyond to install a tailor made bar complete with wine cooler and illuminated LED shelves is all part of capturing the clients vision.

The concealed rack equipment includes Yamaha Bluray & X-Box. The complete environment is controlled using Market leading control technology by AMX to give seamless integration of all equipment, Lutron lighting and even blinds, all from the ease and comfort of an Iport, electromagnetically charged, Apple iPad.

The team did a superb job delivering the whole installation. From the specifically designed Soft Sofa that has electric fully extendable seats, to the individual covered panelled AV wall with hidden panel to conceal a luxury bathroom, the results are flawless. The simplicity of the control system is a joy to use, enabling anyone to pick up the IPad and control any aspect of the AV system, blinds, main and ambient LED lights.

5 TOP TIPS FOR KITCHENS 1. You can, of course, design your new kitchen yourself, but expert advice is hard to beat. A good kitchen designer will probably think of things you haven’t, and should know their products inside out. B&Q, for example, will design your kitchen free of charge and give you access to its Spaces 3D planning tool so you can have a go yourself. Working out what you do and don’t like about your current kitchen, and what you do and don’t want from your new one, is a good place to start. 2. If you’re having an extension built to accommodate the kitchen, deciding how to divide up the space into cooking, dining and living areas should be done before designing the kitchen itself. It’s a good idea to wait until the shell of the extension is up because seeing it may change how you want to use the space. 3. Waiting for the kitchen to be delivered can take longer than you think. Some ranges are available off the shelf, such as B&Q’s IT range - many items can be bought in store, but some are only available from the B&Q website, www.diy.com. Some kitchens take weeks, or even months, to arrive, which can seem like an eternity if you’re managing without one. And don’t forget to find a good kitchen fitter in advance and let them know when the kitchen is due to arrive to avoid unnecessary delays. Recent research from B&Q, which coincided with its Homefit installation service (www.diy.com/diy/homefit) being endorsed by the Which? Trusted Traders scheme, revealed that we spend more time choosing the colour of our kitchen than finding the right person to fit it.

4. Cooking meals is the biggest challenge if you have to cope without a kitchen for long, especially if you have a family to feed. However, there are

plenty of small appliances that make life easier - Russell Hobbs has a good selection, including a Mini Hob (£34.99, www.uk.russellhobbs.com) and MultiCooker (£89.99, www.uk.russellhobbs.com). George Foreman Fat Reducing Grills are great for cooking all sorts of things, but the new George Foreman Evolve Grill (currently reduced to £99.99 from £149.99, www.georgeforeman.co.uk) is like having a hob, oven and grill in one compact gadget. Another surprisingly versatile gadget is the De’Longhi Multifry (from RRP £159.99), which can be used to cook meals such as risottos and stews, as well as crisp chips. 5. If you’ve opted for wooden worktops, leave enough time to oil them thoroughly before installation to protect them from marks and warping. The worktops must be stored and oiled flat, so they do take up a lot of room. Once they’re fitted, remember to oil any cutouts, especially the one for the sink, and keep oiling the worktops in situ - once a day for a week, once a week for a month and once a month for a year, a builder told me recently. The worktops need to be oiled on all sides, but especially the top, and it’s essential to use a good wood oil, such as low-odour Sadolin Worktop Oil (£15.99 for 500ml, Homebase). This isn’t the cheapest oil, but it’s definitely worth paying a bit more to give your worktops proper protection - inexpensive oils often aren’t up to the job. The Sadolin oil takes a while to soak in leave for 24 hours before re-coating - but it repels water well and gives a lovely natural look.

Product of the week Clever gadgets make a kitchen a pleasure to use, but have you considered fitting an extra tap, one that’s the ultimate in convenience? Taps that

provide instant boiling water are often found in workplaces, and they’re fantastic in domestic kitchens too. Unlike with a kettle, you don’t have to wait for the water to boil (noisily), and there’s no danger of knocking it over. Heatrae Sadia’s excellent Aquatap is made in the UK and has a twoyear on-site parts and labour guarantee. Easy to fit, the Aquatap comes as a boiling only, boiling and ambient, or boiling and chilled water tap (prices start from around £1,500, www.heatraesadia. com/aquatap). Each model provides up to 30 cups of boiling water at the touch of a button and can easily be used to fill saucepans, so you don’t have to wait for them to come to the boil either. To save electricity, it switches to energy-saving mode if left unused for more than an hour.

HOME IMPROVEMENTS

SPLASH OUT ON SUNSHINE Yellow’s the colour of sunshine, lemons, sunflowers and buttercups, and even just a small dose of its golden hues will inject rooms with light and energy. With so many shades to choose from - think citrus bright through to champagne or buttery gold it’s easy to liven up a space with uplifting zingy colour pop, or bring a warm glow to your space by plundering this palette. “Yellows are shades like no other; their tones are associated with warmth, optimism and happiness and they’re able to brighten any space in an instant,” says Julie Yarwood, interior designer for Manchesterbased furniture specialist, Housing Units. “Naturally, the popularity of yellow interiors peaks in the summer - especially if we’re feeling somewhat starved of bright, sunny days - but there are ways to incorporate yellow into your decor which will work all year round.”

152

Pale yellows, she points out, can open up a space and are particularly effective in small rooms or those with a lack of natural light. “Softer yellows, such as buttercup and lemon, can have a calming influence, and make for a great backdrop for dark woods and

accent furniture. Deeper, golden yellows are timeless and versatile, lending themselves well to various aesthetics, both traditional and contemporary.” So play with the power of yellow and tap into sunshine style.

Yellow Power Invest in the power of yellow by working the walls with yellow paint or wallpaper, or simply make a statement with a stunning piece of yellow furniture. “Our eyes can see more yellows than any other colour in the spectrum, and so it’s one of the most versatile colours for expressing different styles in interiors,” enthuses Marianne Shillingford, creative director at Dulux. “And if positivity, creativity and joy were colours, they would be shades of yellow. “From deep complex mustard tones to baby chick pastels, yellow keeps surprising us with its rich complexity and ability to delight. If you like your yellow sharp and sweet, try our Sunny Savannah 6

[from the Layer + Layer Collection, £24.49 for 2.5L], or if you prefer a more creamy, dreamy yellow, you’ll love Sunny Day [from the Travels In Colour Collection, £21.98 for 2.5L].” SUNSHINE PICKS: Florals and yellow work brilliantly together, as Mazarine wallpaper by Albany Festival, currently reduced to £17.50 from

£25 a roll, Wallpaper Direct, ably demonstrates with red flowers on a bright yellow background. Alternatively, another of the company’s papers provides an easy way to pick up on the current geometric trend: Widenor Chevron Yellow wallpaper by Thibaut is £56 a roll. If you’re prepared to be bold, paint woodwork in a bright yellow shade, such as Crown Paints Tibetan Gold non-drip gloss, from £13.92 for 750ml, from B&Q and Homebase. Let a sofa take centre stage by upholstering it in the fabulous yellow Cube velvet fabric, £32 a metre from Voyage Decoration. Embrace the colour in the bedroom with a Jonah bed, upholstered in a deep, yolky yellow, from £549 at Made.com. SUNSHINE SNIPS: Revamp a chest of drawers with Lemon Yellow Knobs, £9 each, Etsy, and accessorise with a Pasadena Ceramic Table Lamp, in sulphur yellow, £29, Tesco.

Mellow Yellow Tone down the effect - too much yellow can be garish - but still achieve a stylish impact by introducing pops of yellow in well-chosen pieces and accessories. “If used in abundance, vibrant yellows can overtake a room, making it appear smaller than it is. Yellow is, after all, the colour of caution, so proceed with care when using it,” advises Julie Yarwood at Housing Units. “When choosing brighter shades of yellow, it’s best to pair with neutral tones and greys, as this will help to balance out your colour palette. Using yellow as an accent colour is a great way of injecting life into rooms, which with the ever-popular tonal neutral schemes can lack that ‘special’ something. Adding cushions, artwork or even yellow blooms can make a huge difference.” SUNSHINE PICKS: Show off lemon or glossy yellow touches to best effect in a room with a neutral colour scheme and furniture in pale creamy shades. The Calista furniture range from Housing Units, currently reduced, has sleek good looks and its soft white upholstery is made for this look. 3 Seater Chaise Sofa, £899 from £1299; 2 Seater Sofa, £499 from £799; Armchair, £349 from £499.

Mazarine by Albany festival wallpaper, 17.50 a roll, available from Wallpaper Direct (PA Photo/Dominic Blackmore)

is Habitat’s bestselling colour, so there’s plenty to plunder from its range. One of its most useful pieces is a Blossom Yellow Side Table, £50, with yellow top and dip-dye-style yellow legs.

Digetex Home is never slow to pick up on a trend, and their Isabella Yellow Roller Blind, £119, scattered with blowsy yellow roses on a yellow wash background, could win compliments for a well-dressed window.

Quirky touches always catch the eye and raise a smile. The French Bedroom Company’s My Yellow Deer Head, £45, is a welcome whacky take on this ubiquitous accessory. Alternatively, dress up a table, or a wall, with a Trapeze Boy Bone China Dinner Plate, £48, Melody Rose.

Go on a supermarket sweep and jazz up a dining area with Marseille Metal Dining Chair in sulphur yellow, a bargain at £49 each, Tesco Direct. Yellow

ABOUT US The concept of Reformed Plastics was born over 15 years ago from the curiosity of its founder. Being an engineer by profession, and having had his own UPVC Windows business, and also being the practical and inquisitive person that he is, one day he decided to find out what was really happening to the waste that people were so freely throwing away. His research and interest lead him to focus on plastics, how it can be recycled and what it could be reused for. He discovered that the USA & a few European countries had been recycling and remanufacturing waste plastics into alternative timber products for many years, instead of throwing it all into landfill! Over time, slowly but surely he developed a few basic products in the form of planks and posts and very soon he began to receive interest from this

MEDICINAL GARDENING As a teenager, Chris Beardshaw was a keen sportsman, running halfmarathons for his county, destined to achieve great goals as an athlete. Suddenly, within the space of 10 days, his feet swelled up so chronically he couldn’t walk. The condition spread to his ankles, hands and wrists. His case was a mystery and, after numerous trips to specialists and consultants, he was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis. His choice was to undergo major surgery on his toes and lower joints, or face a lifetime in a wheelchair. This is where his interest in holistic treatments began - he changed his diet, eating fewer vegetables which exacerbated his symptoms, such as aubergines, red peppers and tomatoes, cut out red meat, red wine and dairy products and started investigating the power of herbal remedies. “I went through four-and-a-half years of being explored,” the award-winning garden designer and broadcaster recalls. “I became used to being a curiosity. They were never able to get a full diagnosis on the type of arthritis.

162

“I had gold injections, radiotherapy, hydrotherapy and tried Voltarol-based products. Some provided short-term gain, but four weeks later the condition would return.”

He found that comfrey cream, arnica and devil’s claw helped alleviate his symptoms to a degree, but the whole experience made him think more about the healing properties of plants, some of which he now grows in his own garden. While one in six of us can recognise echinacea, which is used to produce cough and cold remedies, even fewer of us know how to recognise a safe herbal remedy, according to new research from Potter’s Herbals. Yet many plants that can help us maintain our wellbeing are so easy to grow and we may already have them in our garden. Common plants which Chris recommends and uses for his own wellbeing include: • Lemon balm: “It’s very easy to grow - once you have it in the garden you’ll never get rid of it. It’s a herbaceous perennial which grows vigorously and has a hawthorn-like leaf. You harvest the leaf tips from May to mid-summer and make a tea out of it. Tip on boiling water, let it steep for three minutes and when it’s cool enough, drink it. It has a citrus zing to it which cleanses the palate and is uplifting. It’s also good for improving circulation.”

• Rosemary and thyme: “Grow them hard, don’t overwater or overfeed. Don’t grow in a rich garden compost, grow them in a soil-based compost like John Innes No 2 which is less fertile and has a more mineralrich structure to it. The plants will stay dwarfed but will be more concentrated in their components. Put them in the sun to intensify the oils. Rosemary and thyme can break down fats in the body, they serve as a remedy for bad fats. So if you’re eating fatty barbecued meats, take some sprigs, crumble them in your hands and throw them over the meat, not so they burn but so they are warmed.” • Black peppermint: “It’s the most potent form of mint. Grow it at the back of a herbaceous border and let it run forward. When it starts to invade other plants, rip it out and use the bits you’ve ripped out in salads or in tea, as a digestive promoter and to alleviate bloating. Alternatively make it into a compress, hold it on the skin and use it on sunburn. Keep it wet. Mint doesn’t like to dry out. It will also need feeding.”


OUTDOOR LIVING

WHAT TO DO THIS WEEK • Water hanging baskets and containers twice a day in extended hot weather • Take rose cuttings • Layer honeysuckle, wisteria and passion flower by bending the shoots down to the ground, slitting the stem, dusting with rooting powder and burying this end in the soil, holding it in place with a large stone • Water blue hydrangeas regularly with a colourant solution to ensure they remain blue next season • Support the new growth of dahlias • Sow lettuce weekly to continue the harvest throughout summer

Tansy flowers (PA Photo/thinkstockphotos)

• Plant out leeks raised from seed once they are the thickness of a pencil

• Lavender: “Lavender is anti-bacterial, so it’s good to wash your hands in a tea made of lavender. It’s good for fungal infections, if you’ve hit your finger while gardening and you have bleeding under the fingernail, it will clean the skin and cuticles.” • Tansy (Tanacetum - a member of the Aster family): “This produces tiny yellow flowers with ‘shaving brush’ heads. The leaves are an insect repellent. It will grow to 4-5ft and is very good if you’ve got pets because at this time of the year there are lots of tics and fleas about. Harvest the leaves and take a bunch and wipe them down the side of the cat or dog, just behind their ears. It’s a sun-loving perennial, so grow it in sun at the back of the herbaceous border, combined with aconitums, Joe-Pye weed (Eutrochium) and eupatoriums which will shore up the tansy.”

• Don’t let runner beans dry out and, as they ripen, pick them regularly to ensure they don’t become tough

• Top up your pond with a hosepipe as water evaporates in the heat

Lemon balm (PA Photo/thinkstockphotos)

• If grass is drying out, leave the box off your mower and allow the clippings to remain on the lawn, which will help conserve moisture

BEST OF THE BUNCH - Bacopa This effective trailing perennial, often grown as an annual in this country, combines well with almost any colour scheme, its tiny white flowers draped over window boxes or spilling out of containers and cascading over hanging baskets. You can also grow mauve varieties and it spreads quite effectively in containers so is great as a fill-in. It will do well in sun or light shade in multi-purpose compost, but keep it well watered throughout the summer months, trim and feed it occasionally to keep it going. Good varieties include B. ‘Snowflake’ and B. ‘Snowtopia’. GOOD ENOUGH TO EAT - Growing gooseberries Delicious gooseberry fools, coulis and even gooseberry-based sauces to enhance rich, sweet meats will add a zing to summer dining. They are among the easiest soft fruits to grow and there are hundreds of classic green, red, yellow or white types, along with mildew-resistant or thornless ones, which can be grown as bushes, fans, cordons or standards. They should be planted in autumn or early winter in full sun or light shade in well-drained soil. Once planted, dress with high potash fertiliser in spring and mulch with compost, water well in dry weather and start harvesting from late spring onwards. The first unripe berries can be thinned and used for cooking, the remaining ones left to ripen for dessert use. Prune them when the crop is over, cutting out dead or damaged wood.

NEW FIAT 500

ROAD TEST: FORD MONDEO ZETEC

On sale in September and priced from £10,890, the new Fiat 500. Highlights include revised front designed with new headlamps, grills, chrome brightwork and LED daytime running lights. Interior revisions include new infotainment systems, enhanced comfort. Says Fiat:”We have has refreshed the exterior and interior, retaining the unmistakable 500 look that has made it such a global success but at the same time making even more attractive and contemporary. It has not grown in size but it has grown in maturity with advanced technologies, improved efficiency and even more customisation ideas.” Available in two body styles (hatchback and convertible), the New FIAT 500 will be available in three trim levels: Pop, Pop Star and Lounge. All models have LED daytime running lights, seven airbags and a Uconnect infotainment system with six speakers, AUX-IN/USB ports and steering wheel remote controls as standard equipment. The Pop Star version in the UK adds air conditioning, body-colour mirror caps with defrosting function and 15inch alloy wheels, while the Lounge version adds sophisticated features such as a panoramic glass sunroof, rear parking sensors, a chrome front grille, front fog lights, a leather-trimmed steering wheel and a Uconnect 5” LIVE touchscreen infotainment system with smartphone integration and numerous built-in apps to help users stay safely connected while on the move. The engine line-up includes a 0.9-litre TwinAir engine (85hp or 105hp) and a 1.2-litre 69hp unit. The two-cylinder engines boast exceptional efficiency – 90g/km for the 85hp engine and 99g/km for the 105hp unit. Fiat says the updates are substantial, with a focus on technological evolution, but loyal to the unmistakable 500 style.

The Mondeo has been a stalwart in the Ford line-up for many years and the latest version is the biggest, bestequipped and best to drive, making it a sound choice for both family and business users, writes NICK FLETCHER. There are 11 versions of the Mondeo, priced from £21,095 to £26,045 and with a range of petrol and diesel engines. The popular 2.0 litre diesel is an excellent engine with good fuel economy and flexible power delivery, but there is another diesel option buyers find attractive – the 1.6 litre Econetic offering 113 hp and 78.5 mpg combined. Top speed is 119 mph, the 0-60 mph time is 12.1 seconds – decent performance with outstanding economy. The Mondeo is a big car, with plenty of room for five adults and with an enormous boot, and 78.5 mpg is very impressive in that context. My Mondeo Zetec hatchback test model used this 1.6 litre diesel unit and the car

seldom felt underpowered, though I did find it was very relectant to pull away in second gear even when already rolling, which can be irritating in urban driving. That said, it very hard to fault the Mondeo on any other issue. The body styling is is very elegant and the cabin beautifully designed for visual appeal and functionality. Trim materials – not always a strong point with Ford – are very good quality and the seating is supportive and comfortable. Cabin space is excellent, no shortage of head or legroom and boot space is vast and has a low sill which makes loading the shopping much easier. Standard kit includes 16-inch alloys, climate and cruise control, Bluetooth, 8-inch touch screen, four power windows, Start/Stop, front fog lamps, electric parking brake and heated front screen. This mid-range Zetec model costs £22,095 and comes across as a lot of car for the money.

NEW ENGINE FOR INSIGNIA Vauxhall’s flagship Insignia is the latest model in the range to get the new 1.6-litre ‘Whisper Diesel’ engine. The new version of this mid-size turbo engine replaces the current 2.0-litre units and was developed to deliver exemplary responsiveness and low consumption with exceptional running smoothness, Vauxhall says. Priced from £19,534 to £26,114, the 1.6 CDTi (136hp) ecoFLEX version achieves a top speed of 130mph and 0-60mph in 10.9 seconds. And crucially for fleet managers and company car drivers this model achieves 99g/km CO2 emissions when

specified with 17-inch alloy wheels and ultra-low rolling resistance tyres. Fuel consumption is 74.3mpg combined. Also new to the Insignia range is OnStar, giving a WiFi hotspot for up to seven devices, emergency response notification if the airbag deploys and stolen vehicle recovery technology. Connecting drivers directly with a call centre advisor, it provides owners with a personal assistant 24/7. OnStar is available as standard on Elite, Limited Edition and VXR trims and as a £395 option on other models.


MOTORING

BENTLEY BELUGA DEBUT Bentley is launching a new specification level exclusively for its Flying Spur V8 model – Beluga Specification. Says Bentley: “The contemporary trim level affords the Flying Spur sedan a more athletic stance and purposeful visual appeal. Featuring exclusive 20” Black and Bright machined alloy wheels, a gloss black radiator matrix and a body-coloured lower grille bar, the Beluga specification is the perfect enhancement for a modern performance saloon that perfectly blends craft and comfort.” Inside the Flying Spur V8’s handcrafted cabin, buyers will find swathes of piano black veneer, knurled gear shift paddles, contrast stitching to the luxurious seats and steering wheel as well as deep pile floor mats and boot carpet with contrasting leather binding. In 4.0-litre, twin-turbo V8 guise it develops 500 hp, sprinting from 0-60 mph in just 4.9 seconds while at the same time offering a single-tank range of 500 miles. Designed for comfort and refinement, the Flying Spur has benefitted from a suite of upgrades and enhancements for 2015 including onboard WiFi. Flying Spur V8 Beluga is available to order now, with first customer deliveries in the autumn.

OLDER DRIVERS SKILL CHECK

ROAD TEST: VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT ESTATE GT The Volkswagen Passat has been around for over 40 years and has notched up sales of 22 million, so the new version, introduced a few months ago, had a lot to live up to, writes NICK FLETCHER. However, there will be no anxiety in the VW boardroom – the new Passat is an instant winner. Lighter, longer and more roomy that its predecessor, it is also up to 14 per cent more fuel efficient, laden with more creature comforts and safety features, and looks far more prestigious than the previous version. Passat estate prices start at £23,870, with flagship versions topping £37,000. The diesel-only line-up - a petrol-electic hybrid will be available in October - offers 120 to 240 hp, and the best seller will be the 150 hp SE model, with an esimated 80 per cent of sales going to business users. My test model was the upper-range GT, with a 2.0 litre 188 hp engine and 6-speed DSG gearbox. Priced at £30,855 it is extremely well-equipped. Exterior styling provides a real touch of class and the cabin underlines that premium feel with a superior

standard of fit and finish, and use of high quality materials. The cabin accomodation can take five tall adults with no problems, and the boot space is near best-in-class. The fold-down rear seats action is system is easy to use and the boot floor is variable height. No doubt about it, the Passat is a very spacious, very comfortable estate car. But the praise doesn’t stop there. It is also exceptionally good to drive. Smooth, quiet, responsive, controlled – it soaks up the superlatives. There is power throughout the rev-range and the car is effortlessly quick. The 0-60 mph time is just 7.9 seconds, better than many sports cars. Top speed is 144 mph, also outstanding by class standards, yet the Passat GT estate returns a remarkable 61.4 mpg combined. The shortened version of the standard equipment list stills runs to over 40 items, so my personal highlights include leather upholstery, three-zone climate control, driver alert system, 6.5 inch touch screen, 18 inch alloys with self-sealing tyres, and adaptive cruise control.

Road safety group the IAM has relaunched an initiative to encourage older drivers, who are statistically the safest on the roads, to get their skills checked out to allow them many more years of happy motoring. Older drivers have been proved to be significantly safer than their younger counterparts, the IAM says. Last autumn a Freedom of Information request by the IAM showed while 36,001 people between 20 and 30 were disqualified from driving for any reason in the previous 12 months; 3,874 in their 60s were; 1,012 in their 70s were and just 168 in their 80s were. “Despite the statistics showing they are the safest drivers on the roads; many older motorists can lose confidence as our roads get busier,” says the IAM. To help them with this, the IAM is highlighting its Mature Drivers Assessment through a regional test campaign following the successful launch of the initiative last summer. The campaign enables senior drivers to take a 60 minute drive in the comfort of their own car with an IAM approved assessor who will offer an impartial second opinion about their driving. Cost is £49. With over four million full licence holders in Great Britain over the age of 70 and over one million over the age of 80, mature drivers represent a growing segment of licensed drivers. Many of them, however, choose to give up too early because they simply believe they are too old to continue. The MDA regional test campaign works to shift this perception and give older drivers the opportunity to gain that extra bit of reassurance behind the wheel.

TALKING BUSINESS

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

Marsham Court Hotel

Like a family member the hotel is loved by all The Marsham Court has been a labour of love for the family over the past 28 years. Growing their business based on traditional values, the name has become synonymous with their high standards of customer service and attention to detail. Having had great success under this name in the past the family made the decision to leave the Wyndham Group and Days Hotel Brand. No longer quite the right fit for the town or their approach to business, what better choice than to revert to the hotels original name. Having made the decision to rebrand as Marsham Court once more, Rosie tells “we wanted to pay tribute to the original branding whilst adding a more modern look to appeal to our guests both old and new”. As part of their refurbishment program under the Wyndham Group, the reception and bar were transformed into bright and contemporary open plan areas with a fresh colour palette. Choosing to continue with this theme the family have worked with a local designer to incorporate this into a new logo and branding.

168

Re-branding is as Rosie tells “a huge and costly exercise for any business”. In today’s digital age you have to once again build your online ranking and that takes time. Designing and reprinting everything from stationary and uniforms to advertising and marketing material all have to be readdressed. Fortunately for Marsham Court they have an extremely high level of repeat business and therefore by corresponding with their guests have been able to keep them abreast of developments and retained business across all sectors.

The reception for the rebrand of Marsham Court has been extremely well received by longstanding guests and residents of the town. Having built up such a sound reputation, Rosie had been delighted to receive countless seals of approval and positive feedback. Previously when trading under the Day brand, Rosie tells “we had unfortunately lost some business as some guests thought that the property had changed hands and they were sceptical of this”. In fact the family have owned and run the hotel since 1987 and will continue to do so. Like a family member, the hotel is loved by all and the improvements are ongoing, already seeing guests return just because of the name change! When I asked Rosie about the difficulties of the transformation she informed me that an exercise of this magnitude doesn’t go without the odd hiccup. However if there have been any bumps in the road they have been able to quickly resolve them. The Directors, staff and longstanding guests are all delighted about the change and there has been a real sense of loyalty and love for the hotel.

CLEAN UP YOUR PLATE

Back in 2011, TV presenter and cookery writer Ching-He Huang began to suffer from allergic reactions, weight gain and tiredness. As a healthy eater with a balanced diet, Taiwaneseborn, London-based Huang couldn’t work out the cause of her health problems, and embarked on a diet detox to combat them. After making changes, ditching processed grub and eating ‘clean’ - fresh greens, salads, soups and fruit - the self-taught chef started to notice an improvement in just two weeks. “Through a process of elimination, I found out that it wasn’t the actual food or the ingredients I was allergic to, it was what the ingredients were covered or preserved in,” she recalls. Huang discovered it was sulphites - used as preservatives in the production of some food and drinks - that were giving her the reactions. “We have more food available [today], but actually, when you break that down, most of it’s not really food. It’s

chemicals, it’s processed food, it’s food that can’t be found in its natural form,” she notes. “Just like the planet, we have our own little ecosystem,” the 36-year-old adds. “I thought, ‘Here I am trying to get people to love Chinese cuisine, but what’s more important is people’s health, and eating for health’, so I decided to clean my own recipes up. Because it starts with you, to share and promote this way of eating that’s more mindful of one’s own health.” Huang, who moved to the UK with her Chinese parents aged 11, has poured her experience and findings into a book of healthy recipes, called Eat Clean: Wok Yourself To Health. Dishes in the book include Nourishing Mixed Seafood Miso Broth; Garlic, Basil, Tomato, Aubergine and Soba Noodle, and Smoked Tofu With Dinosaur Kale.

It also contains Huang’s advice on eating clean from a diet made up of 80% plant-based foods and 20% organic meat, fish, dairy and eggs, to using seasonal products and reducing sugar intake - and her top 20 clean foods, which include garlic, dark leafy greens, avocado and fresh chilli.

HEALTH & BEAUTY

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.”

Stress reduction Weight Loss Increased coordination Increased flexibility Increased strength Increased endurance

We offer Thai boxing and fitness classes for kids under 18, if you want your kids to have more confidence, self discipline and higher fitness levels it’s only £25 per month for all the classes. Contact Michael for more information.

Your first class is FREE, all you need to do is turn up, the rest is easy! Contact us: Charlie 07968855163 or Michael 07766090116 info@fitterthanfit.co.uk | www.fitterthanfit.co.uk

We make getting fit fun… but don’t just take our word for it. “Great class tonight, only been going a few weeks and feeling so much fitter. Everyone makes you feel welcome and it don’t matter what standard you are, you will have fun and a good workout.” - Gary Higgins ««««« “I have been coming to their classes 2-4 time’s a week for 6 month’s now and absolutely love it. My strength and fitness has improved immensely and because every class is different, you never get bored. More importantly, Charlie and Michael make it fun. Come down and try it.” - Sarah Flynn ««««« “Excellent workout, great and welcoming atmosphere and so much fun, for any level of fitness. Amazing and very professional instructors. Love every session. Come and try it.” - Tatyana Pivnyeva ««««« “Absolutely LOVE Fitter than Fit bootcamp! The morning sessions are fab, fun, and set me up for the day ahead!

ASK THE EXPERT Emily West Honeypot People There’s a definite buzz in the world of recruitment with the arrival of Honeypot People in Bournemouth! The company are experts in sales and marketing recruitment and building on the dramatic success of their Salisbury office have decided to open their second office in Bournemouth.

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

0808 808 00 00 (Monday to Friday, 9am–8pm)

macmillan.org.uk

Managing Director Melanie Daly explains why… “We started the business in Salisbury three years ago and it’s been fantastic to watch it grow. Whilst we have developed a strong market presence in the Wiltshire/ Hampshire area serviced from our Salisbury office, we feel there is so much opportunity in and around the Bournemouth area specifically, and would like to provide our local client base with a more personal customer experience. Bournemouth feels like it’s on the move at the moment and definitely has that energy we love!” Emily West runs the busy Property desk. She has an extensive background in the local Property sector having gained experience in Lettings, as well as recruiting for a leading National Estate Agency brand, covering all roles within the industry. Emily says “My aim is to provide a more bespoke focus to the property sector here throughout the South, by listening to and understanding the requirements of both clients and candidates. Having worked in the sector myself, I know all the skills and personality traits that you need to be successful in both Sales and Lettings. We have had huge success along the coast recruiting in these areas for our clients, and by being local look forward to working with many new clients too! We are always keen to chat to candidates who are looking to begin or progress in their existing property careers. Our new office is centrally located, in the Old Library House, Dean Park Crescent, so it’s ideal for candidates to pop in and see us for coffee!”
