QUAY LIVING LAUNCHES NETWORK E TO SELL YOUR HOME Quay Living and Network Auctions have announced the launch of Network E, a revolutionary new way of selling property that takes the best aspects of private treaty and sale by auction and combines them both in a process that adds speed, transparency and security. Traditional methods of sale often suffer delays which create uncertainty and lead to around 30% of agreed sales never reaching completion. This is frustrating and costly to both buyer and seller. Network E enables a property to be fully marketed to ensure the best possible price is agreed but takes experience from the auction industry in securing a meaningful deposit at the outset, ensuring legal paperwork is immediately

ready and agreeing a completion date at day one. The average sale using Network E takes just 49 days to exchange contracts. Quay Living is the only Poole agent able to offer this exciting and proven method of sale and does so alongside its traditional sales offerings.

Whether you’re looking for a sea view, a cosy village cottage or something steeped in history and grandeur, Rural Retreats has it all.

If you are thinking of selling in 2016 and want greater speed and certainty of sale, Quay Living Network Auctions recommends that vendors actively consider Network E as a selling option. Paul Neville-Jones at Quay Living will be delighted to provide a free valuation of your property and discuss all the sales options open to you, and to explain the benefits of Network E.

With 382 holiday houses in the portfolio, Rural Retreats genuinely offers something for everyone. From Lighthouse Keepers’ cottages, contemporary beach houses, and quaint village cottages, to some of the UK’s important Listed houses, small and large groups will find the perfect retreat – and the reassurance that comes from a long-established holiday rental business.

CORPORATE BOOT CAMP IMPROVES WORKFORCE HEALTH & WELLBEING Dorset business owners looking to make a positive impact on their business in 2016 are being urged to consider initiatives to improve the health and wellbeing of their workforce by Poole-based fitness and nutrition experts 100% FIT. Recent statistics from the Labour Force Survey show that 9.9 million working days were lost due to work related stress, depression or anxiety in 2014/15, with minor illness the most common cause of short term absence, followed by musculoskeletal injuries, back pain and stress. All of which could potentially be improved by following a healthier lifestyle. A former international athlete having competed for Great Britain as a decathlete, Scott Exley, owner of 100% FIT, has been a personal trainer since 1999 and also runs corporate boot camp sessions for local businesses that want to promote health, fitness and wellness to their employees. Longstanding client of 100% FIT is Poole-based digital marketing agency Bespoke 4 Business who have been

attending twice weekly lunchtime boot camp sessions for over two years. Director Anthony Tilley has witnessed the positive impact that working with 100% FIT has had on his staff, “Working with Scott has not only improved our fitness levels and general health, I believe it’s also helped to unite us much more as a team, which has led to increased productivity and motivation in the office. Our Tuesday and Thursday sessions are very much looked forward to and have certainly created more awareness of a healthier lifestyle among our staff, not to mention some healthy competition!” The corporate boot camp programme run by 100% FIT can be tailored to the requirements of each business and provides nutrition and lifestyle guidance, aids weight loss, improves body composition, fitness, strength, agility and confidence, whilst providing personal development goals and an opportunity for social interaction outside of the office environment.

Landlords had a lot more to deal with in 2015, Sections 8 & 13(2) were both amended. The Deregulation Act enforced in March & October of this year significantly changed the section 21 notice and the rules attached to the service of the notice, along with the use of the introduction of rules which counteract Retaliatory Eviction. Needless to say health and safety also featured with Smoke Detector and Carbon Monoxide regulations which were initially discussed in March and finally became law in October.

Building a conservatory on your property can do a lot more than just provide somewhere to sit and read on a sunny day. Many homeowners wish they had more space in their home, but if you’re not in the position to consider a full extension, then maybe installing a conservatory is the answer.

Installing spray foam insulation will help save you and your household money every year, your home will also become a more comfortable environment. Foam insulation can also support your roof structure but more importantly you can reclaim your loft space.

Kate West, Divisional Lettings Director for the Goadsby Central Region has been reflecting on the last year which has seen letting agents and private landlords deal with significant changes in legislation. “As 2015 has drawn to a close, we can look back on an increasing amount of legislation which landlords and letting agents have navigated. Whilst there was no direct legislation to regulate letting agents, the Consumer Rights Act focused on transparency where fees & redress were concerned. Trading Standards are making their way through agents to ensure that the regs are being adhered to and Goadsby feel this is a step in the right direction.

CONSERVATORIES: THE MOST VERSATILE ROOM IN YOUR HOME?

Goadsby have been increasingly busy ensuring they keep their landlords compliant, however, looking forward to 2016 there is more to come. The Immigration Act will come into force across the UK on 1st February 2016 and the likelihood is that many landlords and letting agents will not be prepared. The Housing and Planning Bill will probably be enforced in 2016 and will focus on putting in place further restrictions on landlords and agents. We must all begin to get to grips with the fact that the Private Rented Sector will continue to evolve, most definitely for the better. It is crucial to understand the changes and for those who do not understand the bigger picture, being compliant and making sure systems and processes are updated, allows us as a business to offer the best service we can for our clients.” If you require any further information on regulations please contact your local office: Kate West, Bournemouth - 01202 544644 Chris Smith, Ferndown – 01202 895511 Adam Carter, Southbourne – 01202 432188 Adam Ford, Wimborne – 01202 848984 Andy Hill, Westbourne – 01202 767610

With modern conservatories now being built utilising the best insulation and double, or even triple, glazing they really have become an all-year-round room. With such a vast range of styles now available, and even the option to design fully bespoke conservatories, there really is no limit to what your new space can be used for. We’ve seen conservatories used to extend kitchens and provide alternative dining spaces. As children’s playrooms, utilising the benefits of toughened glass for peace of mind. We’ve even seen conservatories used as home gyms or meditation areas, perfect for saving on those expensive gym memberships. So, the only question left to answer is what will you use your new conservatory for? For more info on conservatories or any of the products Swain & Rands can offer visit www. swainandrands.co.uk or call the office 01202 536 422.

LANDLORDS – COULD THIS BE THE END OF BUY TO LET? 2015 saw dramatic changes being announced for the buy to let market with both the Autumn Statement and the Summer Budget delivering yet more blows to Landlords. We look at whether George Osbourne’s latest housing agenda will affect the incredibly buoyant buy to let market and will it deter existing or would be Landlords from investing further in property?

the average house price across England increase by approximately £18,000, the equivalent to just over £9 per hour for the average worker! Demand for rental properties is still extremely high, the quality of tenants is generally very good and average rents have been consistently increasing over recent years, something which is unlikely to change.

The most significant change was the introduction of an increased stamp duty land tax which is to be charged on any additional residential properties. This tax will increase by 3% on any property above £40,000 and applies in circumstances where a residential property is already owned and then a further buy to let or second home is purchased.

In summary, I still believe that buying to let is not only a safe option, but an excellent long term investment. Whilst the Government seem intent on penalising landlords, what they don’t seem to realise is that if they reduce the number of landlords by introducing further tax increases, the supply of rental properties will fall, resulting in rents being further increased due to the high demand for such properties. With the volatility of the stock market, bricks and mortar have been, and will continue to be many investors first choice.

This, coupled with the scrapping of the wear and tear allowance and the impact of the interest relief as a deduction against rent being phased out from April 2017, it would certainly appear that the Government are targeting Landlords! Having said this, historically, buying to let has been a safe option for investors and the monthly income, coupled with the capital growth that the majority of landlords have enjoyed, has proved to far out perform many other investment vehicles.

If you are considering buying to let or indeed are an existing landlord and wish to discuss the new tax implications further and how they may affect you, please contact a member of our experienced lettings team who will be happy to answer any queries you may have.

‘‘

With the new rates taking effect from 1st April 2016, we have already seen a considerable number of investors and indeed people who had been considering a second home purchase, eagerly trying to buy a property before the stamp duty rate increases.

LAND & PROPERTY DEVELOPMENT

Above: Due for commencement in early 2016, the re-plan and development of land at “Amberwood” in Lymington was voted in favour by 16 out of 17 New Forest Councillors.

AJ DEVELOPMENTS Before selling your house or site lets together explore the most profitable options AJ DEVELOPMENTS have spent the last 6 years building their stellar reputation amongst local communities and residential bodies alike. With their popular builds and eco-friendly developments, this has been achieved with a consistently considerate approach to the needs of home owners and local councils, but can also be attributed to their submission of realistic planning applications and well-earned partnerships. With a national housing shortage, home owners are increasingly exploring and undertaking the option of cashing in on appreciated land whilst remaining in their existing home. This is a particularly attractive option for those who are retired, as it frees up capital from their house without the need to relocate. As Brits, we aspire to a “mortgage free” status. It is for this reason that the thought of re-mortgaging or increasing our debt, can be unnerving, particularly if your whole life has been spent working towards this end. In most cases the fear of potential risk outweighs curiosity to explore the idea that you can access capital on your home, without incurring crippling charges.

54

In a recent case study, AJ purchased a site in Highcliffe; an existing house with a sizeable garden, for which an approval decision has just been reached, allowing for 3 new homes to be developed. The uplift on the home and plot which the homeowner originally contacted AJ about has been exponential, and something which was never even dreamt about by the owner before. Another recent example is on a popular road in Lymington (Above); The existing house was devalued by only £100,000 with the shortened garden, but by selling off the land to the rear, plot realised £700,000. This allowed over half a million pounds worth of profit to be generated for the home-owner on the entire plot and who (prior to contacting AJ) had only been expecting a price for the existing house. Increasing in popularity as an option, those who wish to cash in on their gardens now have planning laws working in their favour as it is becoming more and more difficult for Councils to resist applications in already developed areas; This is also attributable to the new planning guideline, PPG3,

which recommends houses to be built at a higher concentration over the coming years. Selling your garden does not need to be time consuming or complicated. A home-owner on Colemere Gardens in Highcliffe who was recently working with AJ, received an approval decision and full completion money within 12 weeks of the initial signed agreement between the two parties. No matter where your garden is situated, whether it be to the rear, the side or in front of your house, you will have options that can be explored in order to realise the full potential on your plot. Several recent homes, have been built by the team at AJ Developments in back and side gardens, have been sold with creative access and driveway ideas. If you have any opportunities you wish to discuss, irrespective of their size, history or location get in touch with them for a free consultation. T. 01202 940206 E. info@ajdevelopments.net W. www.ajdevelopments.net

With time-scales similar to those of a standard sale, AJ have the capital available to ensure the purchase and approval of any land or property is quick and effective - No fuss!

ASK THE EXPERT The Mortgage Doctor offers his advise on all your mortgage needs

Letters from readers I am 58 years old and my wife is the same. We only have 2 years left on our interest only mortgage and our lender has asked us what are we going to do to pay them back. The only option at the moment is to sell up but we don’t really want to leave yet. They won’t offer us a new mortgage. Is there anything we can do? - Mr & Mrs G, Christchurch You are not alone. People coming to the end of their interest only mortgages will be the hot topic of 2016. Currently, there are very few provisions for people other than selling up. There is good news though. One lender has broken ranks and is offering mortgages with no upper age limit on interest only. Others are expected to follow suit as soon as the results of a FCA consultation with lenders are published. There will be some restrictions on lending beyond retirement though. Borrowers will have to demonstrate that they will be able to afford to still pay the mortgage after retiring. Pension statements will have to be provided to show that there will be enough to cover the mortgage and bills. If you can do that then we might be able to put you with this lender and your worries hopefully will subside. Rates are reasonable enough at 3.79% up to 60% Loan to Value (LTV) and 3.99% up to 75% LTV. I have a large garden and a local builder has offered to buy half of it to build another house on. He has offered £325,000 but a local estate agent tells me that similar newly built houses are selling for closer to £1m. I’ve been told that it will cost around £350,000 to build the house so there is a much bigger profit for me if I get my own builder in. I’m 65 and have no pension as such. How can I do it myself as I have no money? My daughter told me to contact you. - Mrs B, Canford Cliffs This must be a difficult decision for you. Basically, the builder is offering you half of the profit for half of the risk and he will do all the work. That’s not a bad offer. However, an extra £300,000 or so is nothing to turn your nose up at either. Life however, is all about risk and reward, so I will look at the options that will allow you to do it yourself. There are 2 ways to approach this depending on how much risk you want to take: you can raise money against your home and use that to pay the building costs or you can split the garden into a separate plot and raise money against the plot and on the build. Putting your home up as collateral may be cheaper but if it all goes wrong, not only will you lose the new building, you could also lose your home. There are specialist development financiers who will only look at the build. Your final profit may well be reduced but all the risk is on the new build. Imagine if there was subsidence or another major problem during the build, potentially threatening the project. If there was, would you rather lose the garden or your home and garden? The question you must ask yourself is: do I want to risk my home for an extra £30,000 profit? Only you can answer that one. If you have any mortgage queries contact Tony our Mortgage Doctor on 01202 233660 or email info@planit-mortgages.co.uk or visit www.planit-mortgages.co.uk 64

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

Something to consider If you own a home, have a mortgage and would like to reduce your monthly mortgage payment or raise some extra cash, then you could consider a remortgage. Many homeowners are taking advantage of historically low mortgage rates by switching their mortgage to a new lender. According to figures published by Moneyfacts; “the average twoyear fixed remortgage rate stood at 2.83% at the beginning of June, but this fell by a significant 0.43% to 2.40% by the end of November. The drop was even more marked for five-year fixed rates, with the average for remortgagors falling by an impressive 0.50%, down from 3.24% to 2.71% over the same period.” If there is enough equity in your home then, subject to mortgage lenders’ assessment of your personal financial situation, you can seek to raise extra money for any legal purpose. This may include; refurbishing or extending your home, clearing unsecured debts such as credit cards and personal loans, purchase of a holiday home or a buy-to-let investment property, marriage, a new car, a holiday or any mixture of legitimate reasons. Before you investigate your options for switching your mortgage

product or raising money with a new lender, you should check with your existing lender to see if they could help you and what they would charge you. You should then speak with a good broker as they will have up to date information on mortgage rates and will be able to research the market for you to ascertain which deals could be available to you and indeed which is most suitable, and most competitively priced, considering your circumstances. Once you have selected an appropriate new deal, your broker will need to submit a full application to the new lender. They will assess your personal financial circumstances (including your income and expenditure), plus they will survey your home to ensure that they are happy to lend to you. Assuming everything is acceptable to them, they will issue you with a mortgage offer and the legal process of switching your mortgage can be completed. Think carefully before securing other debts against your home.

Your home may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on your mortgage.

Diary of Award Winning Sales and Letting Agent Move On Sharon Canning

IS IT WORTH IT BEING A LANDLORD?

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)

The government have not been kind to the private investor during 2015 announcing plans to increase stamp duty from the 1st April 2016 by an extra 3% to anyone purchasing a second property. On a £250,000 property this will be an extra £7,500 stamp duty (which you can claim back when you sell the property). They are also going to be taxing landlords on turnover rather than net profit by taking away the ability to deduct mortgage interest as a tax deduction by 25% each year over the next 4 years, so that by 2020 it will be nil! (Clause 24 of the Finance Act 2015). This will have a serious impact on a lot of landlords. Hooray for two private landlords who have raised over £50,000 so far through the website Crowd Justice to fight this as they believe it breaches human rights and/or EU rights. Many landlords, have a one or more properties to fund their retirement years and see their investment not only as a business but also their pension. Up until now, it has been the logical way to buy several properties with mortgages which not only bring in an income but are also growing in capital - versus buying one property outright with cash. In my opinion the government are doing two things. One, to try and rid from the market the accidental landlords and not very good landlords and two to back the big institutions who are going to be building rental accommodation in big blocks over the next few years. Frank Knight recently reported the build-to-rent market will grow over the next few years and could be worth £50 billion by the end of 2020. One way of being able to overcome this could be to put your properties into a limited company as this will only attract 0.5% stamp duty and will allow the mortgage interest to be tax deductible - this is certainly something to be seriously thinking if you are purchasing, however, existing properties being transferred into a company will attract capital gains and therefore I would recommend you seeking legal advice from an accountant who specialises in property.

I know what it takes to run a team efficiently and most importantly ensuring my Landlords get the service they not only expect but deserve”.

Harriet Morgan, Senior Property Manager

Harriet joins the team following a very successful 2015 with a record number of new properties on the market and an ever expanding portfolio of managed properties. “Property Management is the key to any successful Lettings Business. It’s at the core of the business and it is my job to ensure our Clients are looked after every step of the way. Clients are our number one priority and unlike other agents we always do what we say we will”

“Landlords often make the mistake of thinking that all agents are the same, but it’s clear that at Burns we go the extra distance for our clients.”

Y & B T ED LE AG AN

“I enjoy the challenge of organising refurbishment work and am currently renovating two properties for clients that have just come to the market. Landlords value my opinion and will listen to my advice and recommendations on the work required to ensure the standard of their properties is maintained and the highest level of rent achieved.”

M

We ensure the move in process is as stress-free as it possibly can be, handling the references, ensuring the property is maintained to a high standard throughout the tenancy and then dealing with the deposit return. Maintenance is a major part of property management and we have a tried and tested panel of contractors that we can rely on and who we trust to get problems solved efficiently and effectively.

Clients are our number one priority.

Efficiency truly is Harriet’s middle name and it’s clear to see that she is passionate about her job.

HOME IMPROVEMENTS

BATHROOMS BY RIPPLES

1

Victoria Lombard (owner of Ripples’ Bournemouth showroom) offers her advice on three things to consider before designing a bathroom… 1. Think about your tiling options: A tile will look very different on its own, compared to how it looks when it’s in place in your bathroom. It’s absolutely vital that people think about where they want their tiles placed, the colour and the size, before they make a final decision, these decisions will have a huge impact on the overall design of the bathroom. When it comes to tiling there’s a lot more to think about than people first realise and the style of the room will impact which tiles I would suggest someone picks, if a customer is looking for a contemporary finish, then I’d suggest we look at rectified tiles, the thinner grout lines will give you a crisp clean finish, through-body porcelain tiles (where the tile is the same colour throughout) will ensure that we don’t need to use tile trims and if a customer has a smaller bathroom, then I would suggest we look to use larger tiles to create a bigger feel. Mosaic tiles can create a beautiful feature in any bathroom, placed in the shower or on the wall next to the basin works very well. 2. Think about your water system: While there are an array of amazing products at Ripples, it’s important to consider whether the products that might have originally drawn your attention will work in your bathroom. For example, it’s important to get familiar with your water system because it will hugely affect what someone can buy. Do you have a gravity fed system, combination boiler or pressurised system? Knowing what type of water pressure you have and how it’s supplied to the bathroom will allow you to maximize the choice of product you specify and allow you to achieve maximum flow rates in your new bathroom. 3. Think about your lifestyle: It’s paramount that before you think about colour schemes and products we ask all the essential questions to understand exactly how our customers use their bathrooms. I ask my customers 2

how they use their bathroom, who uses the bathroom

3

and how much time they spend in their bathroom. By asking these questions I can slowly start to build an understanding of their requirements and our designers can work on creating them the perfect bathroom. If a customer suggests that they like to store a selection of beauty products in the bathroom, or that they like a very minimal look, then we would be thinking about streamline, simple storage options. Thinking about what you want in your bathroom will ensure that when it’s completed, it not only looks great but is practical too. Visiting a bathroom specialist like Ripples will ensure that all of these areas (and more) are covered, and the outcome? A beautiful bathroom that suits you, perfectly.

OUTDOOR LIVING

WHY ARE RECYCLED PLASTIC PRODUCTS DIFFERENT? Plastic lumber is the perfect alternative to anything that has ever needed maintaining. Plastic lumber can be cut with a regular saw, drilled, nailed or screwed into and routed as easily as wood.

• Resistant to extreme weather • Will not rot, split or splinter • Will not need painting or staining • Is wear resistant • Resistant to vandalism • Resistant to salt water • Resistant to chemicals • Resistant to insects and bacteria • Non-slip decking • Maintenance free • Lasts for over 50 years 142

WHAT TO DO IN...

YOUR GARDEN THIS WINTER We endured the wettest winter on record last year, with high winds and torrential rain that caused widespread chaos for many homes and businesses across the country! Extreme weather conditions can have disastrous effects on conventional outdoor furniture and fixtures, causing them to rot and deteriorate, which makes them dangerous to use, not only now but during the spring and summer months too. Reformed Plastics offer you the chance to invest in outdoor furniture that will not only look great, but will not break or decay, even in the most turbulent of times.

Make it safe to walk through your garden in the rain... We have a lot of rain in store for us over the next few months, which will cause a lot of surface water throughout the area. As a result, it’s important to take all the precautions we can in order to ensure our safety when we are out and about. Reformed Plastics’ can offer you a great solution for keeping safe at home and/or work…

We offer anti-slip walkways and decking that have 85% more friction than hard wood, when wet. This means that you can walk down your garden without the risk of falling over on damp and slippery surfaces. Our walkways and decking come in black and brown as standard, and are completely maintenance free. They also will not rot or splinter, and last for over 50 years.


WOOD vs PLASTIC Wood

Plastic

Stain-resistant NO splinters NO warping NO splitting NO rotting NO need for treating NO need for sanding Child friendly

The manufactured plastic has many practical and very useful properties. The main base of our products are in the form of planks and posts which can be used on their own for garden fences, both low for front gardens and high for side and back fences for instance, along road sides and around fields and paddocks just to name a few. It is also possible to produce a number of other products out of our plastic, such as picnic tables. These would vary in size, suitable for adults and children. Park benches, outdoor tables, square or rectangular plant boxes, decking and seating... the list is endless.

Achieving value for money is a key driver for any purchasing decision. Although some recycled products have greater up-front cost, their longevity and durability make them a more costeffective option over the long term.

TESTIMONIALS JO SAPSFORD “Your request for feedback arrived just a few days ago. Yesterday I had a contractor in to fit a TV bracket for me. He saw my Decking and asked me about it. I was able to give him your card and highly recommend your product. If I move I would certainly have your Decking again. It does exactly as you said, it does not stain, it does not get slippery in the rain, and it still looks fantastic after several years since it was fitted.”

DOUG KIRBY “Not only was delivery Prompt and Easy, the Reformed Plastics driver incredibly Helpful. The product is Great. 4 years on and looks Brand new. Better yet it’s Recycled! ”

BRIAN MEAKER “I received the Octagonal Picnic Table on time and we unloaded safely over the low wall into the patio area using the wagon tail lift. The table exactly fits our requirements! Thanks again for providing the effort and excellent service to deliver throughout the purchasing process.”

MOTORING

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

ICE DRIVING WARNING Seven in ten drivers surveyed have dangerously poor knowledge when it comes to winter stopping distances, according to research by safety charity Brake. 11 per cent of drivers think the stopping distance is twice as long in icy weather, a third think it’s four times as long and 27 per cent think it should be five times as long. Just 23 per cent of drivers know that the actual figure is up to ten times as long. That means, while on a fine day, if you are driving at 30 mph and need to brake immediately it will take you 23 metres to stop, but in icy conditions it could take up to 230 metres - that’s the length of two-full size football pitches and, of course, the faster you are travelling, the further that distance could be. Many drivers also do not know enough about stopping distances in wet weather. More than one in five drivers fail to check the gap between their car and the car in front, and a fifth do not leave a large enough gap, meaning that, if they have to brake suddenly, it could lead to a serious crash. Brake recommends that drivers leave at least four seconds between their vehicle and the vehicle in front in wet weather.

ROAD TEST: MG3 FORM There is a lot of choice in the supermini hatchback sector and it easy to overlook some of the fringe candidates which can sometimes offer as much as mainstream models, but at a lower price, writes NICK FLETCHER. A good example is the MG3, an attractively styled and spacious model with plenty of badge charisma. Keenly price from just £8,399 – cheaper than some tiny city cars – the MG3 is well equipped and offers a distinctive persona in a rather humdrum sector. There is only one engine option, a 1.5 litre petrol unit which offer 105 hp, mated to a 5 speed gearbox. Underway, the car displays some verve and is grippy and composed on the corners, though to maintain decent pace, you do need to keep the revs up. The 0-60 mph time is nippy by class standards at 10.4 seconds, top speed is 108 mph. Fuel consumption is 48.7 mpg combined. Value for money is a big plus-point for the MG3. You can get a kit-laden top-spec version for £9,999 – the price of an entry level model from some rivals. From the outside, the MG3 looks like it is from a class above, though

the interior does look more budget priced, with cheaper trim materials. Entry-level models get powered front and rear windows, six airbags, stability control and emergency brake assist, hillhold control, tyre pressure-monitoring system and a radio/CD player among standard kit. But most buyers will probably opt for the mid-range 3Form version which adds air-con, a DAB radio, Bluetooth, remote central locking and leather steering wheel with audio controls. At £9,299, this was the model I tested recently and it came over as a lot of car for the money Seating is comfortable, all-round visibility very good, and the dashboard logically laid out for easy use. There is good head and legroom for four adults to be comfortable even on long journeys. Boot space is 285 litres, boosted to 1,262 litres with the rear seats folded. While the MG3 doesn’t quite match rivals for fuel economy of emissions, it offers a lot more equipment and cachet, and with a new ‘greener’ version just entering UK showrooms, the appeal of this model becomes even wider.

VOLVO RECORD SALES

Volvo UK is celebrating its best sales performance in 21 years, with 43,432 cars sold in 2015. This represents a 6% increase on 2014. The V40/V40 Cross Country was the biggest-selling model in the UK, with 17,068 sold, followed by the XC60 (13,920) and the V60 (3,353).Demand for the all-new XC90 was also strong - a total of 2,981 were sold in 2015. This all helped Volvo Cars achieve a record-breaking global sales figure of 503,127 in 2015 – the first time Volvo has sold more than half a million cars in its 89-year history. Nick Connor, Managing Director of Volvo Car UK, said: “With the strongest sales here in the UK for two decades, and the highest sales worldwide ever, Volvo is a brand that is going places. And with other technologically advanced, luxurious and distinctive models on the horizon, we’re confident that these record-breaking figures will continue into 2016 and beyond.”


MOTORING

HONDA SPECIAL EDITIONS

NEW FORD EDGE The all-new upscale Ford Edge is set to enter the UK’s surging SUV market this summer, and will be priced from £29,995. Ford says it offers class-leading space for up to five passengers, segment-first technologies and refinement to rival premium competitors. Available in Zetec, Titanium and Sport series, the Edge is well-equipped as standard, offering intelligent all-wheel drive, Active Noise Control, Pedestrian Detection, DAB Audio with SYNC 2 connectivity system, privacy glass and 19in alloy wheels. The Edge will be offered in the UK with a choice of 180hp 2.0-litre TDCi diesel engine with six-speed manual

transmission, or 210hp bi-turbo 2.0-litre TDCi diesel with sixspeed PowerShift automatic transmission. Both powertrains will aim to deliver 48.7mpg and 149g/km CO2 emissions. Outstanding refinement is achieved with acoustic windscreen glass and laminated glass for both front door windows, minimising the intrusion of wind noise. Underbody panels and wheel-arch liners further minimise road and wind noise. All Edge models are also equipped with Ford’s Active Noise Control technology that detects unwanted engine noise in the cabin and cancels it out with opposing sound waves fed through the integrated sound system.

Honda UK is set to launch two new special editions of its Civic and CR-V models. Both arrive on dealer forecourts from the start of February, the Civic Limited Edition from £14,995 and the CR-V Black Edition from £29,995. Three years after the last version of the CR-V Black Edition first launched, Honda has revived the more sporty, premium look. The model is available in 4WD with a choice of petrol or diesel and manual or automatic. On the exterior, owners will get running boards, a tailgate spoiler, 19-inch black alloys, a gloss black front grille as well as gloss black skid plates on the front and rear. The full leather interior features contrasting stitching with an embossed Black Edition logo on the front and rear seats while the door panels and arm rests are also leather. The interior is finished off with premium carpet mats complete with the Black Edition logo. Based on the standard 1.4 i-VTEC S manual, the new Civic Limited Edition comes with 16inch aero alloys, body coloured wheel arches, front panel and rear skirt to give the car a slightly more aggressive sporty look.

HALF-MILLION MOKKA Vauxhall is celebrating the 500,000th order of its Mokka, which has proved a huge success across Europe since launching three years ago, It’s been as well-received by customers as it has the Press, with awards across Europe including an “All-Wheel Drive Car of the Year” prize and a “Company Car of the Year” honour. The Mokka is available with a choice of engines with the frugal latest-generation turbo-diesel units leading the way. In combination with a six-speed manual transmission, the 1.6 CDTi is available in 110hp or 136hp version, achieving up to 68.9mpg combined and emissions as low as 109g/km. This diesel can also be combined with intelligent allwheel drive. The 4x4 system automatically recognises where the most traction is required and divides power to front- or rear-wheels accordingly. Like most Vauxhall models, the Mokka is now available with OnStar. The personal connectivity and service assistant proposes a wide range of services ranging from Automatic Crash Response and Roadside Assistance to Remote Vehicle Diagnostics via the myVauxhall smartphone app or a powerful 4G/LTE Wi-Fi hotspot for up to seven devices.

TALKING BUSINESS

TALKING BUSINESS House talks business with Koh Thai Tapas

AN EXOTIC HOTSPOT: BORN ON THE BRITISH COAST

authentic Thai cuisine, quality produce, a personal service, excellent value, a great atmosphere, and for each and every customer to feel valued. It is imperative that guests enjoy more than just tasty food. With Koh Thai Tapas you are getting an entire dinning extravaganza – Lights, camera, action!

So Koh, what’s the story?

Achieving Authenticity

Do you ever get that deep hankering in the pit of your stomach for really great Thai food? Well, you can blame Koh Thai Tapas for that, and by blame we mean thank. Their mission to provide truly authentic Thai cuisine has taken the South coast by storm, and it seems that we remain powerless in resisting temptation. The story starts with Andrew Lennox, Nick Billingham and James Hampton in December 2009. Frustrated with the conventions of classic Thai fine dining, their mission was to break down barriers and make way for a totally new dining structure - a structure that would allow guests to choose what they want, when they want. It seemed to them, that there was an on going food equation which didn’t quite add up. Where fine food equaled stuffy atmosphere, and a boutique setting meant mediocre

Our vision was to start a Thai tapas revolution across the UK.

food. So Andrew, Nick and James set out to create an entirely new concept, where you could enjoy truly decadent Thai food, submerged in an atmosphere that was both visually stunning and welcoming without pretense. If you have never been to a Koh Thai Tapas before (put down this article immediately and just go!), then you might not be totally clued in as to what this very popular place has to offer. You’ve heard of the saying, east meets west? Well this is where they met. Koh is where you can enjoy traditional Thai food, with the feel of a European tapas bar – no rush, no confinement to napkins in ones lap and moist towelettes, its easy breezy good food with friends and loved ones. This is a company that eats, lives and breathes their ethos, abiding by rigorous standards that keep the quality and authenticity of their food consistent throughout their 9 sites. But it’s not just about the food for these islanders: it’s a little something they like to call the ‘complete dining experience’ (CDE), which is what keeps people coming back time and time again. The ‘CDE’ consists of five key elements:

Society as a whole is becoming more interested in what exactly goes into our food, and moreover where and how it is cooked. Koh’s food is cooked by none other than indigenous and highly skilled, Thai chefs. Meaning every mouthful is true to its authentic roots. It’s a sad reality, but with immigration laws tightening, future plans will enable European chefs to be trained (for a minimum of 2 months, as is the Koh way) in the simpler dishes, whilst their Thai chefs can continue maintaining authenticity of the more complex Thai food, which can take Chefs years to fully master.

The Many Branches of the Koh Tree Did you ever wonder what the difference between the various Koh brands were all about? Well you have most likely heard of their flagship brand ‘Koh Thai Tapas (Restaurant and Bar)’, but did you know that there are three other types of Koh to enjoy? Koh Thai Tapas Restaurant for example, similar to the aforementioned Koh brand only the focus is based on a more intimate setting, usually in a slightly smaller site. Or perhaps you’ve noticed their most recent addition – ‘Koh Noi’? The baby


TALKING BUSINESS

Chili. Like it or not, billions of people choose pain with every meal. - Heston Blumenthal of the group; dedicated to the mantra ‘great things come in the smallest of packages’. This little oasis makes for a more flexible dining experience, where customers can sit back, and leisurely enjoy only tapas sized dishes, and drinks – here its all about the atmosphere. Finally not the most recent, but something they can see developing nationwide: ‘The Koh Lounge’, a unique external catering concept. You might have attending one of their pop-up restaurants at local events such as ‘The Bournemouth Air Show’, or perhaps the ‘Sandbanks Beach Polo’. These are just local examples, but The Koh Lounge has been setting up camp up down the country, participating in 10 events last year, (2015). The setting is truly unique and idyllic for an eastern dining experience. Imagine dining seaside in a 20-foot long stretch tent, your toes in the sand, maintain the balance between your Penang Curry in one hand and a spiced Mai Thai in the other, it doesn’t really get any closer to paradise without journeying to Thailand itself. Currently they are positioned to partake in more and more events in the years to come, now having acquired all of the relevant equipment and experience from previous events. We suggest you keep an eye out this summer, as it will be an experience not to be missed.

Koh Thai Timeline Their hidden gem and first Koh Thai resides in trendy ‘Boscombe’, with the ever-popular flagship Bournemouth branch joining two years later in

2011. Now Koh Thai Tapas have since set-up in Lilliput, Christchurch, Ringwood, Southsea, Bath, and Bristol, with plans to create additional sites in Salisbury (estimated for February) and 3 more to follow in 2016. Guests are returning to their local branches time and time again to get their ‘Koh Fix’, and if that wasn’t enough the years have seen some incredible awards including being reader recommended in the ‘Good Food Guide for 2011, 2012 and 2013’, Koh Southsea won Heart FM’s Food Award in 2013, and the group became Winner of Best Employer 2015 in Hospitality (Small Restaurant Group), to name just a few.

A little futher afield: Why Thai Food? – WHY NOT! If, like us, you are now entirely won over by your favourite restaurant, which just so happens to be a pioneering hospitality empire, you might be left with just one question… “But, Why Thai Food?” we’ll let the CEO of this incredible brand answer that one for you: “Thai food was not fully integrated amongst the English market back in 2005. We felt that the Thai tapas concept of informal service & shared eating experience had a synergy with the traditional Thai dining culture which we wanted to exploremoreover we absolutely adore Thai food!” (Andrew Lennox, CEO) We were lucky enough to take a trip to ‘Koh Noi’ in Christchurch, turn to page 156 to check out our review!

FOOD & DRINK

PLANTING SEEDS OF CHANGE “The amount of dairy I was packing away was shocking to be honest,” says Aine Carlin, gravely. It was this realisation, and the fact that “every single meal had some form of dairy in it”, that sent the food writer, former actress and award-winning blogger (www.peasoupeats.com) into a tailspin over what she was putting into her body.

Cornwall, Carlin sounds the opposite of joyless. Not only has going vegan given her a whole new career avenue, it’s had a huge impact on her health and how she feels about herself. The premise of her latest book, The New Vegan, is to make vegan eating accessible to everyone.

Understandably so, considering her first book, Keep It Vegan, won the 2014 PETA Award for Best Vegan Cookbook and the 2015 Gourmand Award for Best UK Vegan Book.

“I love communal eating; for me it’s all about sharing food, and veganism has a very solitary image. You do it yourself and for yourself, you eat alone and there’s something about that that’s very depressing for me,” she explains. “I wanted to open it out. It’s more about sharing your lifestyle and sharing your food, and everyone sitting around a big table and passing bowls of this, that and the other.”

Originally from Derry, Northern Ireland, Carlin had always been interested in food and cooking from scratch, but her vegan transformation took place during a stint living in Chicago. Now based in

“When people think about veganism, they think it’s very dogmatic, that you’re being told what to eat, that you’re being criticised if you slip up, and I want to get away from that mindset, because it’s

“I opened the fridge one day and had a hard look at what we were eating,” she remembers - and six years on, she has no regrets about going vegan.

destructive and it doesn’t work in the long term,” she says passionately. “It’s about being supporting and accepting of everyone - and just enjoying food!” By Ella Walker, Press Association Photo credit: PA Photo/Handout If you’re tempted to switch to a vegan lifestyle, get started with these three recipes from Carlin’s new book...

200g wholewheat spaghetti 100g green beans Handful of fresh rocket Balsamic vinegar Extra virgin olive or flaxseed oil Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper For the pesto: 30g fresh basil leaves 30g spinach 2tsp mixed nuts (walnuts and pecans work best) Juice of 1/2 lemon 1 small garlic clove 3tsp extra virgin olive oil 3tsp flaxseed oil Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

Method Bring a large saucepan of salted water to the boil and add the spaghetti. Place all the pesto ingredients in a food processor or mini blender and blend until smooth. Taste for seasoning and add a touch more salt and pepper if necessary. Once the spaghetti has been boiling for about five minutes, add the green beans and cook for a further four to five minutes, or until the pasta is al dente and the beans are cooked. Retain a cup of the cooking liquid and drain the spaghetti. Return the spaghetti and beans to the pan, add the pesto and half the reserved cooking liquid and stir thoroughly to combine. Add more liquid if necessary. Dress the rocket leaves in a little balsamic vinegar, oil and seasoning. Serve the spaghetti in warmed bowls and top each with a handful of dressed rocket leaves. 148


FOOD & DRINK

Gluten-Free Orange Polenta Cake (Serves 8-10)

Ingredients

Method

120g polenta 80g ground almonds 100g gram flour (made from ground chickpeas) 1tsp bicarbonate of soda Zest and juice of 2 blood oranges 100ml olive oil 100ml agave nectar 1/2tsp orange extract 100ml soya yogurt 40g crushed pistachios, to decorate For the cashew frosting: 150g cashews, soaked in water for at least 6 hours 100ml agave nectar Juice and zest of 1/2 orange 1/2tsp orange extract 1tsp (heaped) coconut oil 2-3tsp water

Preheat the oven to 170C/gas mark 3 and grease and line a 15cm cake tin. First, make the frosting. Drain and rinse the cashews and blend in a food processor or highspeed blender with the agave, orange juice and zest, orange extract, coconut oil and two tablespoons of the water. Scrape down the sides frequently until it becomes completely smooth, adding a little more water if necessary. The frosting will go through several stages; nutty, coarse and eventually silky smooth. Don’t take a shortcut by adding too much liquid. Keep blending and refrigerate until needed. Mix the polenta, ground almonds, gram flour and bicarbonate of soda together in a large bowl. Stir through the blood orange zest to ensure it is evenly distributed.

In a separate bowl, vigorously whisk together the oil, blood orange juice, agave, orange extract and yogurt. Make a well in the centre of the flour and pour in the orange and olive oil mixture. Fold gently and transfer to the prepared cake tin. Bake for 30-35 minutes. Check whether the cake is cooked by inserting a skewer to see if it comes out clean. Once baked, leave to cool briefly on a wire rack before removing it from the tin. Set aside until completely cool. Slather over the chilled cashew frosting, smoothing it around the sides with a spatula. Finally, decorate with crushed pistachios. The cake is best eaten fresh, but will keep for up to three days. 149

PR Man About Town A taste of what’s to come in 2016 It’s a brand new year and the owner of Dorset’s go-to PR Agency, Darren Northeast PR, shares his enthusiasm for everything the next 12 months has install. Following the excitement of the festive season, January can be a gloomy time of year. However, don’t let the ‘New Year Blues’ get you down! With so much already going on in and around Bournemouth and Poole, plus much more to look forward to, let’s start to get hungry for the year ahead… Currently on everyone’s lips, is the recently opened Bournemouth Hilton Hotel. The renowned hotel chain has added a new touch of local luxury whilst boasting spectacular views across Bournemouth. Come the summer, we can also look forward to a brand new cinema and restaurant complex opening up nearby. The development will include 14 new restaurants, adding extra flavour to the town centre. If you can’t wait until the summer for five-star-food, look no further than the new Rick Stein restaurant in Sandbanks. Since opening it has been wowing local residents and, having recently visited the restaurant myself, I can assure you it beats all expectations!

HEALTH & FITNESS

QUIT TALKING START DOING

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

I’m too unfit/I need to get fit first Ok. This is one of my personal favourites. This is what we’re here for. Getting people fit is what we do. Yes we have some fit people that come. We got them there. We also have some people that aren’t fit but are on their way. The workouts are adaptable to any level. And personally one of the things I love about this job is seeing the improvement clients have made whether that be doing their first full press-up or beating their personal best on a 10k. It’s too early I’m not going to deny the morning Bootcamps are early. 6:30am. But let me talk about the benefits of that. Once you have finished that hour work out you’re done for the day. The rest of the day is your own. No thinking about going to the gym after work. No trying to muster up the energy to get yourself off the sofa in the evening. And it can really set you up for the day too. A lot of clients tell me how it means they got more done and don’t feel anytime was wasted. You feel fresh, energised and ready to attack the day. There are showers based at the YMCA so if you are tight for time we have the use of those. If you really cant make it we also have classes at 9:15 or early and later evening classes (6:30pm and 8:00pm respectively). So there’s some thing to suit everyone. I’m not sure about punching and kicking things I’ve never done it before We are a Muay Thai bootcamp so there are times where we do punch and kick things. Things being pads. I know a few of my clients have been a little weary of this side of the bootcamp but have actually ended up completely loving it and even gone on to do our more technical Thai classes in the evening. The Thai boxing in Bootcamp is very basic as it’s used to keep the heart rate high, burn fat and tone

up. It’s also only part of the session. We do so many other things sometimes we only do pad work for 10 mins at the end of a session. Just totally depends on the day. You won’t know if you enjoy it or not until you try it. I don’t really like being shouted at There maybe times when I raise my voice. I like to call it motivational! To be fair I don’t need to shout. People come for a reason and to reach goals. I ask people to do things to help them reach these goals. If you don’t want to do it you don’t have to do it. Simple. But if you pay for a class I would say you probably want to get your moneys worth. And what we do seems to work (I would just like to say I can’t speak for Michael as far as shouting goes)! I’m too fat, slow, weak, old... None of these excuses apply. If you want to make a change you need to come. We have clients from 5-65. Of all shapes and sizes and all abilities and levels. They are with us for a number of different reasons from confidence to fitness to weight loss. I know I say this time and time again, but I’m genuinely honoured to have such an amazing, supportive, lovely group who are all there for each other. I completely understand the barriers of initially starting a new class but once you come to us you’ll see why we can make a difference. We can make you faster, stronger, slimmer maybe not younger but certainly feel it! And all in a supportive environment. I’ve heard you do bootcamp on the beach, I don’t really want to train outside in the winter Well you don’t have to. We do have some outside classes, even running throughout the winter. We meet at Boscombe pier and move around that area. But our morning bootcamps are based at the YMCA in Bournemouth, Westover Road, so nearly all our

New Year Offer: Fitter Than Fit are looking for 3 volunteers so we can document your body transformation from start to finish. Yes that’s right, free training! Contact us: Charlie 07968855163 or Michael 07766090116

morning classes are inside. Occasionally we will take the group outside weather permitting but also depending on what the group want as a whole. The outside classes aren’t always on the beach either they can be anywhere in that vicinity. We have so many classes to choose from and based between central Bournemouth outside at Boscombe and our gym in Boscombe. There’s bound to be something to suit everyone. There’s free parking to be found around all areas which is a great added bonus. Basically we have a lot of options and only a few classes outside in the winter so the chances of you going home horridly sandy are slim. Bootcamps are so expensive They can be but not ours. Its only £5 per session and the first session is free. The sessions are an hour long so you’re getting the maximum for your money. There is also an option to pay for monthly membership. This is £50 for as many classes as you like. Inclusive of any class on our timetable, with around 25 and more to add this is an amazing price. We also have kids classes, yoga and open gym time and looking to add insanity in the not to distant future. We are one of the few Bootcamps which offer a Pay as You Go option. So take advantage of your free session. I don’t like bootcamp Well worse case scenario there are loads of other classes on our time table as I have mentioned. I also understand believe or not you may not like me (shock) but that’s why we have 4 different instructors all with a different way of teaching and adding their own fitter than fit twist on the classes. Just take a little look at the testimonials on our website - fitterthanfit.co.uk. People from all walks of life enjoying our classes and recommending us. YES I have an answer for everything!!

January Offer: 3 months boot camp for the price of 2 for people booking before end of January


FOOD & DRINK

REVIEWED

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

KOH NOI, CHRISTCHURCH Tiny food, big flavour! For years, people have indulged themselves in the typically European ‘tapas’ food concept, but Thai tapas? Now that is really something special. After years of frustration with the Thai food industry in the UK, never quite hitting the spot as true Thai cuisine should, three entrepreneurs set out to create the ‘Koh Thai’ that we know and love today. Whilst their brand is ever growing and developing, we took a little time to visit one of their fairly recent additions: ‘Koh Noi’ in Christchurch. Now I must stress that this review will almost certainly leave you drooling, and lusting for some tasty Thai food afterwards. So, we suggest (for your own wellbeing), having the number of your nearest Koh on speed dial, and perhaps holding the magazine away slightly… Koh Noi or “little island”, as it means in Thai, is the latest of the 4 brands The Koh Group have developed; based on the notion that great things come in small packages. Typically in smaller premises, here, you will only find tapas sized dishes, accompanied by an eclectic drinks menu, offering signature cocktails, international beers and plenty of choices of wine and spirits to choose from. Another unique thing about this place? It is strictly walk-in’s only – No reservations, It’s a true life of leisure here. There are no quick turnarounds on tables, in fact that would negate the whole concept of the tapas style of dining. It’s all about enjoying the moment, with good food, good drinks and good company. There’s a certain intimacy that comes from dining in a smaller space, and much like their other sites they have spared no cost in creating an eastern oasis, outside of the island. Lavished with glossy wooden tables, tropical plants and oriental lanterns it really is an exotic paradise in a seaside town.

Upon arrival we were greeted by three happy, smiling faces, meet: Demi, Max and Ellie. There seemed a wonderful synergy between them, Demi and Ellie our wonderful hosts, and Max the bartender with a whole lot of flair. Between them they made for quite the dynamic trio, always there when our glasses were empty, and there to ensure we were having the best of times, although they are entirely to blame for our post food coma, (we hoped we’d never wake from it). Tapas menus are always tricky to negotiate, on the one hand you know that the last time you went for a ‘light tapas luncheon’ you called in trying convince your boss that ‘tapacomatosis’ was a real and incurable disease, and that sleeping it off was the only cure…then that other voice chimes in, ‘but we are really hungry this time’. Well we went with our ‘gut instinct’ and got the chance to sample almost twenty delectable dishes. We decided that our readers had a right to an opinion of both the classics, (chicken satay, crispy beef, Thai curry…), and the new, like their signature deep fried muscles in bacon – to die for by the way. Lets begin with the classics, commencing with their ‘Beef Thai Red Curry’. A great Red Thai Curry is perfectly balanced, spicy but not overpowering, meat and veg that have taken on the entire flavour of the marinade, and a creamy coconut broth that holds it all together. Now I must admit I’m making this all sound too easy, but with a blend of multiple different spices and all of it’s elements, the Thai curry is no simple dish, and Koh Noi, well they take the prize for best I’ve ever had. A few other fan favourites include their sliced crispy beef (moreish is an understatement), their Thai fishcakes (not by any means ordinary, these hot cakes will certainly spice things up) and my new personal favourite

prawn tempura. With it’s light and crispy coating encasing a worthy portion of fish, it made for the ultimate tapas treat! Something you might not have tried before, is their signature muscles in bacon – ‘Fish and bacon? Surely not?’ Well for the skeptics among us I pray that you give this dish a go, I assure you, you won’t be disappointed, but if you need a little convincing: the muscle is initially wrapped in a bacon jacket, it is then covered in a very lite crumb and deep fried. The combination of smoked bacon, with the natural sea salt the muscle provides, balanced with the slight sweetness of the crumb sent our taste buds into a frenzy – your only problem will be slowing down your hands.

What meal would be complete without a cocktail or two, and for this review we indulged in one ‘Mai Thai’ and one ‘Summer Daze’. Koh have given, the original Mai Thai a whole new identity: typically known for it’s zesty flavour, lashings of rum and just a trickle of almond syrup, this signature adaptation including aspects of chili will certainly warm you up for a fully fledged Thai feast. Not forgetting the summer daze, which stirred untapped palette regions, bringing the sweet and the sour into one harmonious balance. Needless to say, we will be visiting again very soon – That is if any food was left uneaten. Thank you for your hospitality, and marvelous food!
