BIGGEST CATALOGUE YET FOR QUAY NETWORK’S FEBRUARY AUCTION! NAVA auction house of the year, Quay Network Auctions, continue to go from strength to strength with the announcement of their largest ever catalogue ahead of their 25th February auction at the Grosvenor House hotel in London. One hundred and eight lots have been listed and will go under auctioneers Guy Charrison and Richard Worrall’s hammers on the day. The auction has a spectacular cross section of property from across the UK with guide prices ranging from zero reserve to £2.3 million. There are five lots with guide prices in excess of £1 million. The auction is also a fabulous opportunity for investor buyers to acquire and complete on properties ahead of the 3% stamp duty surcharge on second properties that comes into effect on April 1st, and considerable interest is anticipated as a result.

Quay Network Auctions hold eleven auctions every year with six in London and five in Birmingham. Duncan Challis said: “Whilst the February catalogue has undoubtedly been boosted by the impending stamp duty change and the opportunity presented to sellers of investor buyers keen to transact, it is also a reflection of our growing status as a leading UK auction house and position as the current NAVA auction house of the year. Auctions are a transparent, fast and secure method of sale and we look forward to announcing the results of another successful sale on February 25th.” To discuss selling or buying by auction, Quay Network Auctions can be contacted on 01202 683444 or email; duncan.challis@quaynetworkauctions. co.uk

GOADSBY CONTINUE SUPPORT FOR CITIZEN AND RESPECT SCHEME Goadsby are making themselves at home with AFC Bournemouth, by continuing their sponsorship of the Community Sports Trust’s Citizen and Respect scheme for a second year running. The project aims to use young people’s love of football to encourage good behaviour at school, home, in sport and within the community. To support this aim, coaches from the Community Sports Trust will be delivering a number of interactive and practical sessions within local schools, as supported by representatives from Goadsby.

It is a pleasure to again be working on this project with Goadsby, and we thank them for their continued support.” Paul Stewart from Goadsby commented, “We are delighted to continue our support of the Citizen and Respect campaign.” “It’s fantastic to see how well the project is received by the children and the interaction that it generates in both the classroom and its practical sessions.”

ALAN & THOMAS RAISE £4000 FOR DORSET CHARITY MOSAIC After another successful year’s fundraising for their charity of the year, Alan & Thomas Insurance Group recently handed over a cheque for £4000 to Mosaic, the Dorset charity which offers support to bereaved children. Having adopted Mosaic at the beginning of 2015 following a staff vote, the insurance broker’s eighty strong workforce have pulled out all the stops to raise vital funds for the charity, which provides grief counselling for young people and support to children and families who have experienced the death of a parent, sibling or loved one. Activities such as dress down days, bake sales, in-house breakfasts and cream teas, prize raffles and sweepstakes, a rugby ticket auction and the annual A&T quiz night were all well supported by staff, clients and contacts, and helped contribute to the total amount, which was then doubled by the company to reach their final donation of £4000. Alan & Thomas, who have offices in Poole, Gillingham, Dorchester, Frome and Basingstoke, are no strangers to supporting local worthwhile causes and have over the past four years helped to raise more than £17,000 for Mosaic, Gully’s Place Trust Fund and the Wessex Cancer Trust. They have an internal charity committee who are responsible for organising fundraising events and activities throughout the year, which staff and clients take part in.

“We are really pleased to be able to continue to offer schools in Dorset the opportunity to take part in this brilliant project,” commented AFC Bournemouth partnerships executive Amy Marks. “We believe it teaches children the fundamental lessons of how to respect

WINDOW OF OPPORTUNITY FOR 2016 Richard Farnes, Associate Director of Goadsby, Ferndown Office commented, “Whilst the predicted upsurge in available stock last Autumn failed to materialise, our message remains – ‘if you want to move get into the market now, there are some fabulous opportunities for buyers’. However, the market (nationally, regionally and locally) remains unbalanced with an abundance of buyers but a chronic lack of good quality homes coming to the market at present. With the run up to ‘The Spring’ market, the rewards can be handsome with excellent prices being achieved, reflecting the imbalance between supply and demand.

to-let properties is likely to encourage some activity between now and April 2016, coupled with the seasonal influx of sellers venturing into the market place now that the New Year is behind us.” If you are considering selling or buying in 2016, please do call or pop into the office for an informal chat where Richard or one of his staff members would be delighted to assist on 01202 895511.

To meet this demand, Hamptons International will be hosting a high profile Roadshow in the capital on Saturday 12th March 2016 between 11am and 3pm. The Roadshow will take place simultaneously in the company’s Blackheath, Battersea, Earlsfield, Chiswick and Muswell Hill branches. The Hamptons International Roadshow will provide those living in London with invaluable insight into the places to move outside of the capital and showcase an array of properties available to buy or let in areas of the commuter belt and countryside. The hosting London branches will have property experts from various country locations on hand to offer a comprehensive view of the area as well

Hoburne Holiday Parks has given away a family holiday to Diverse Abilities as part of its Diamond Raffle initiative during its 60th anniversary year in 2015. Diverse Abilities presented the winning holiday to Nick Bold, who works at the charity, for selling the most raffle tickets to win a Franses Jewellers diamond pendant with an 18 carat white gold chain.

“Whilst the reforms to Stamp Duty were good news for the majority of property buyers, SDLT is now a significant, material factor for higher-end transactions. The recent 3% Stamp Duty surcharge on second homes and buy-

Latest research from leading estate agent, Hamptons International reveals that in the last 12 months, 63,000 Londoners made the decision to buy homes outside of the capital. This represents the largest number of Londoners leaving the capital for eight years.

as providing key information on the top performing schools, commuter times and property values. Marc Goldberg, Head of the Sales at Hamptons International says: “As the gap between prices in London and the South has grown, so has the temptation for Londoners to cash in on record house prices and move out. Last year, Londoners spent a total of £24 billion on homes outside of London, up from £14 billion in 2014.” If you would like your property to be included in the Roadshow, or if you’re looking to sell your property in London and move to the country, please contact your local Hamptons International branch on 01202 021942. Participating branches include: Hamptons International Battersea & Wandsworth; Hamptons International Muswell Hill; Hamptons International Blackheath; Hamptons International Chiswick; Hamptons International Earlsfield & Southfields.

Nick sold the most raffle tickets to friends, family and colleagues ahead of the draw that took place at the end of last year, and he plans to give the prize to a friend. They will now enjoy a holiday for up to six people during 2016 at any of Hoburne’s seven holiday parks in Hampshire, Dorset, Devon, Somerset, the Cotswolds and Cornwall. Helen Mortimer, Fundraising Manager at Diverse Abilities, said: “We are extremely grateful to Hoburne for supporting us and providing this fantastic prize. It was a great way to encourage staff, supporters and those connected to the charity to sell more diamond raffle tickets, which helped us raise over £6,200, which will help transform the lives of children and adults with disabilities in Dorset.” To find out more regarding Diverse Abilities visit www. diverseabilities.org.uk and Hoburne Holiday Parks at www.hoburne.com

LAND & PROPERTY DEVELOPMENT

Above: Situated amongst the leafy suburbs of Lymington; a stunning, private, gated development comprising of just two elegant homes. ‘Amberview’ & ‘Amberscape’ each boast far reaching views across the Solent to the Isle of Wight. Due for completion Summer 2016.

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.

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 home-owner originally contacted AJ about has been exponential, and something which was never even dreamt about by the owner before.

PPG3, which recommends houses to be built at a higher concentration over the coming years.

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.

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.

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.

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.

52

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,

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.

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!


LAND & PROPERTY DEVELOPMENT

Above: With a quick and simple purchase and approval, compared to the time-lines typically associated with standard practise, the development on Colemere Gardens will be due for commencement in January 2016.

Above: Serenity, Smugglers Lane North, Highcliffe. A 2500sqft chalet bungalow nestled in a private and highly sought after location, close to excellent schools and amenities. Due for completion in April 2016.

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

Can Cameron turn Generation Rent into Generation Buy? A lack of supply, land, labour and a challenging planning system, have all conspired to make housing on par with immigration in the battle for politics’ hot topic. Historically low interest rates and high house prices have left an increasing number of young people and families struggling to fulfil the common national aspiration to own a home, left instead facing costly rents and difficulty saving for a deposit. To tackle this situation, David Cameron recently announced that he wishes to change policy to “turn Generation Rent into Generation Buy”. Mr Cameron reaffirmed his strategy to create 200,000 “starter homes”, delivering a more tangible proposal surrounding the scheme. In total, Mr Cameron wants 1 million new homes built by 2020. An ambitious target that if achieved, would signal a genuine move by the government to tackle the housing crisis, possibly in response to Jeremy Corbyn’s own ideas regarding a housing revolution. These “starter homes” will be accessible to first-time buyers under the age of 40 at 20% below the market value, capped at £250,000 and £450,000 for London. Mr Cameron is determined to oversee a dramatic shift in housing policy: “We need a

national crusade to get homes built. That means banks’ lending, government releasing land, and yes – planning being reformed.” But some critics suggest that this is simply political spin. By moving the goalposts slightly and promoting flexibility for developers on affordable housing does little to affect the core issues. Yet this will undoubtedly appease those aspiring to own their own home, despite its possibly negative effect on their current situation. Other experts highlight that this policy does not do enough to tackle the biggest barrier for first-time buyers: affordability. Campbell Robb, chief executive of Shelter, said the new scheme would only benefit those already able to purchase a home: “You don’t solve an affordability crisis by getting rid of the few affordable homes we’re building, yet that’s exactly what this policy will do.” The charity also said that only those earning more than £50,000 a year will be able to buy one of the new “starter homes”, undermining Mr Cameron’s belief that Generation Rent can easily become Generation Buy.

He offers the following advice about the importance of using a BAR Member when choosing a removals company. Steve says: The British Association of Removers (BAR) is the industry’s trade body and its members are required to meet the following standards for quality and service: • To provide you with a clear description, price and timetable for the work carried out. • To offer insurance or other protection options. • To provide suitable quality materials for packing. • That the standard of vehicles and warehouses meet BAR requirements • To provide professionally trained staff. • What you should do if things go wrong. And naturally, the Code requires all BAR members to be courteous, competent, and committed to providing a high standard of service. Steve said: “If you are moving outside of the UK it’s very important your removal company is a member of the BAR Overseas group, as non overseas group members only offer guarantees on UKUK Moves; BAR Overseas member customers are protected for moves worldwide. Maidmans adhere to the BAR code of Practice and have been recognised by our industry peers on many occasions including winning the prestigious Domestic Mover of the Year competition twice. Moving home is a potentially stressful experience but choosing an established quality removal company who are members of the British Association of Removers (BAR) will minimise the risks and your stress levels on the day”.

With all the bad publicity surrounding PPI, I was wondering if Accident, Sickness and Unemployment insurance (ASU) is the same thing with a different name and whether I should avoid it. What do you think? - Kate, Bournemouth I understand your concern. Banks have paid out billions in compensation to thousands of people who paid for this policy when it wasn’t needed or explained properly to the people who had it. The main difference between the policies is that PPI was taken as a lump sum and often added to the loan and became interest bearing meaning that a £10 per month policy over 25 years came to £3000 and with interest could end up costing £6000 or more over the term. As most people don’t stay with their lender for the full term, these policies were non-transferable and therefore a lot more expensive than they were worth and hence why the banks have had to compensate people. ASU is different. Accident and Sickness policies are pretty common, the unemployment part is usually a “bolt-on” policy to cover you against such an event and is available through a smaller number of providers. The policy is separate from the mortgage which means you can keep it whether you have a mortgage or not. You will only be allowed to claim for unemployment for a total of 24 months within the policy. Accident and sickness can also have a 24 month maximum payout or you can have a policy that pays out for the life of the contract if you have a long term illness such as MS or an accident making you unable to work again. There is a lot to explain so give us a call if you would like to know more. These types of policy are ideal for providing sick pay to the self-employed. We would like to re-mortgage to pay off some loans and credit card debts as the credit card interest is quite high. However, our mortgage is a lifetime tracker at 0.15% above Bank Base Rate (BBR) and we don’t want to lose it. What can we do? - Paul & Emily, Parkstone I can’t blame you not wanting to lose such a low rate. If you remortgaged, you would most definitely lose your deal. Lifetime trackers are rare nowadays and those that exist are at least 3% over base rate. You can get a 2 year tracker at 0.95% over base (1.45%) with the mortgage going back onto the lender’s Standard Variable Rate (SVR) at the end of the 2 year term. The solution may be to get a second charge. Rates can be as low as 5.9% and when used in conjunction with your existing mortgage rate, it can work out cheaper than remortgaging to a completely new deal. A good mortgage adviser should be able to calculate which is the best way to approach this and will demonstrate both methods to prove which one is best. I hope this answers your concerns. I look forward to receiving your letters and giving some more advice in the next issue of House.

STONKING – ONE WORD FOR JANUARY January has been a ‘stonking’ month and before you say ‘is that a word’, it is in the Cambridge dictionary. We have put more sales in hand in one month than in the last 5 months collectively. Our lettings department broke all records for January ‘move in’s for the last 10 years. So yes, I could have said a phenomenal month, a fantastic month, but for some reason, stonking seems to fit. Apart from ‘stonking’, the saga continues for private landlords. In my last column I said two private landlords had raised over £50,000 through the website Crowd Justice to fight Clause 24 of the Finance Act 2015 as they believe it breaches human rights and/or EU rights. The change in the Finance Act will mean that landlords will be taxed on turnover, and not on profit – meaning some will have to pay tax, even if they are making losses. The latest update is Cherie Blair’s firm Omnia Strategy has been hired and is taking up the case and a letter has been sent to HMRC to say the policy discriminates against individual buy-to-let investors. The Government has 14 days to respond to the letter, after which the matter moves to a judicial review, where a court will be asked to rule on whether the legislation is valid. The Blair’s themselves are landlords. Stamp duty increase of 3% to the buy to let sector, (which is due to commence from the 1st April) is not yet a done deal – the five week official consultation finished on the 1st February and the results will be released in the March budget. It could still be turned around, however, I am not holding my breath. 1st February also brought in the new ‘Right to Rent’ rules and will bring landlords £3000 fines if they are caught not applying their due diligence and just in case you didn’t know the ‘Help to Rent’ guide issued by the government has been updated and must be used for new tenancies. As usual, it is all go in our world of property! Don’t forget to try our new valuation button on our websites or www.moveonrentals.com www.moveonsales.com or www. landlordtolandlordsales.com.

Ethanol Fire EFB1200, all available from Chesneys

GLOW-GETTER Winter’s baffling dips and dives - ranging from mild to Arctic - and more predicted cold spells ahead, mean it’s important to have effective, versatile heating at home. While turning up the thermostat on chilly nights is fine, it’s worth looking at other solutions too, in order to maximise warmth, minimise heat-loss (which could be needlessly firing up those energy bills, too), and add raise the style stakes as well. Turn up the heat by following advice on heating solutions from the experts, which are practical, economic, functional and stylish...

Focus On Fire A real fire always adds a special ambience to a room, and serves as a focal point around which everyone can gather. Although, in reality, a real open fire often isn’t the most efficient solution, only warming up the immediate space - a significant proportion of the heat generated (up to 80%) will be lost up the chimney - the psychological and aesthetic benefits can be worth the investment. No chimney? That needn’t mean your hopes of enjoying the crackle of wood, and glowing embers turn to ashes, because with new ethanol fires, you can have all the beauty, warmth and comfort of a real flame, but without the need for a chimney or flue. They’re odour-free and ecologically friendly too, as the material’s extracted from plants.

FEEL THE HEAT: Chesney’s, a leading supplier of luxury fireplaces and stoves, has a traditional and contemporary range. If you have a chimney, a Burlington Surround, from £1,775 (ex-VAT), is understated and elegant, and teams well with a Soho Fire Basket For Dogs, £375 (ex-VAT). Its ethanol fires come in a modern ribbon burner design, or a classic fire-in-basket style, and incorporate remote controls, starting from £2,730. Homebase’s selection of ethanol fires features a modern Eton Bio Ethanol Fireplace, for only £169. Gas coal fires, often indistinguishable from the real thing, throw out a surprising amount of heat in my experience, and B&Q’s impressive selection includes a Focal Point Lulworth Manual Control Inset Fire, with a pebble fuel bed, £154. If you’re all electric, Dimplex’s selection features a Whitmore Opti-myst Inset Fire, with flame and smoke effect, from around £549.99.

Above: The Morso, available from morso.co.uk

“Stoves are designed to burn wood, coal or smokeless fuel. As well as heating rooms, some also heat water and a limited number of radiators. All stoves use heat more efficiently and can be lit and produce heat in minutes,” says Nick Sloane, managing director at stove specialists, Jotul UK.

Stove Smart

“A stove prevents heat loss up the chimney, even when not lit, and one burning only wood operates at around 80% efficiency, compared to around 15% for an open fire, and burning wood is classed as carbon neutral, and burns more cleanly than coal or smokeless fuel. Many models are now approved for burning wood in smoke control areas.”

Wood burning stoves, once only found in country cottages, are hugely fashionable these days, sought after for both their look - many are design statements in themselves - and their eco-friendly credentials.

FEEL THE HEAT: Modern stoves, with as much glass as possible for viewing flames, are the hottest choice. Jotul’s handsome Scan 68 wood burning stove series, from £1,900, comes with or without side windows.

HOME IMPROVEMENTS

Hwam wood burning stove, available from Euroheat

Morso cast iron stoves include an eye-catching S160-32 three-sided stove, from £5,050, which would be a dramatic room-divider in an open plan area, while a Morso 1418, from £1,183, would suit a more period room. Euroheat’s Hwam wood burning stoves start from £1,430 (ex VAT), and I love their fun London Fireguard, depicting a London skyline, from £142.80.

Ravishing Rads Radiators ceased to be ‘wallflowers’ long ago, when designers - especially in Europe - turned their attention and transformed them into works of art.

“We know these days that people view radiators as far more than just a heat source, and they’re looking for high quality, individual products, which are efficient but also in harmony with the design of the home,” says Nick Duggan, managing director at The Radiator Centre.

“One of our most popular models is The Big One, renowned for its high heat output and strong powerful design. For colour and impact, the funky Mod-u radiator is an outright winner.” FEEL THE HEAT: The Big One, made in Italy and renowned for its high heat output, from £785£2,123, is one of The Radiator Centre’s bestsellers, while for those who like funky colour, the square Mod-u radiator, from £1,500, is hard to beat. This company also has a selection of radiators made from glass to which any design, image or photo can be applied, starting from £695. Vasco’s is another company which is proving radiators rock, and its Carre Half-Round radiator, with curved towel rail, from £1,392, is dramatic in carmine red.

HOME IMPROVEMENTS

Blinds available from Duette

Window Winners Don’t overlook windows. According to experts, around a third of a home’s total heat-loss escapes through windows and doors - so double glazing is a sound investment, or consider draught-proofing and other solutions, including heavy drapes or shutters. FEEL THE HEAT: Duette blinds claim to help lower heating bills by up to 25% by preventing heat-loss, as they have an insulating honeycomb design, and fitted made-to-measure blinds in white start at around £150. Shutters are another way of helping lock warmth into the home - I have these and they are effective - and there are some brilliant ranges around at competitive prices. Shutterly Fabulous’ range starts at £290 per square metre for standard colours, and custom finishes from £320 per square metre. By Gabrielle Fagan, Press Association Photo credit: PA Photo/Handout

OUTDOOR LIVING

WHY USE REFORMED PLASTICS? There is a product that is truly environmentally friendly, totally inert and infinitely recyclable. A product that looks & feels like wood but requires no painting or staining and is completely maintenance free throughout its 50+ Year life. Reformed Plastics products are manufactured from 100% UK plastic waste such as waste packaging, waste drinking cups, plastic bottles and other similar items that are not biodegradable and often cause a major disposal headache for local authorities. It is truly environmentally friendly, recycled, infinitely recyclable AND generates no waste during manufacture. The appearance and feel is the same as wood but requires no painting or staining. Here at Reformed Plastics we manufacture many products usually associated with timber from such material, including decking and boardwalks, fencing, gates, pavilions/amphitheatres, bollards, ground reinforcement, street and garden furniture, plus much more. We can also refurbish existing timber benches/tables with our product. Projects using our material may even be eligible for many eco grants on offer. Our aim is to provide a product that is made from 100% recycled UK waste therefore reducing landfill, but without compromising on quality. In fact the quality, durability and lifespan is better than regular wood. Our products are individually manufactured

in our Bournemouth premises, so please contact us with any specific requirements you may have and we’ll do our utmost to accommodate. The Facts 1. Waste in the UK goes to landfill which are already working to full capacity. 2. The largest lake in the Britain could be filled with rubbish from the UK in 8 months. 3. Plastic in these sites takes 1000 years to rot away. 4. In an average county there is 90,000 tonnes of plastic that goes to landfill every year. 5. On average, 16% of the money you spend on a product pays for the packaging, which ultimately ends up as rubbish. Why recycle? Recycling is an excellent way of saving energy and conserving the environments natural resources. One recycled plastic bottle would save enough energy to power a 60-watt light bulb for 3 hours. The unreleased energy contained in the average dustbin each year could power a television for 5,000 hours. We offer closed loop recycling, by diverting post consumer plastic waste from landfill

and manufacturing it into a huge variety of usable products. For example 42,000 plastic 500ml bottles = 1 tonne = 7.7 picnic tables (130 Kgs ea.).

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

NEW DS3 MODELS New DS 3 and DS 3 Cabrio are the latest models to be unveiled by DS Automobiles. The hatchback & Cabrio versions have new design features and latest-generation technology. Prices start at £13,295. Since the launch of DS 3 in 2010, some 390,000 have been sold with the UK the leading market for a car the manufacturer describes as “a hip and stylish Parisian supermini.” New DS 3 and DS 3 Cabrio have revised front end design, and enhanced connectivity and driving assistance systems. Both new models can be specified with the latest PureTech 130 three-cylinder turbo petrol engine and offer a latest-generation automatic gearbox with the PureTech 110 petrol engine.

ROAD TEST: SEAT IBIZA VISTA The Ibiza has been one of SEAT’s most popular models for many years, and despite a lot of keen competition from mainstream rivals, it can still run the leaders of the supermini herd, writes NICK FLETCHER. SEAT is part of the VW stable and the Ibiza shares many parts with the VW Polo, but recent revisions to the suspension and dampers give the Ibiza a more nimble and engaging driving feel, styling tweaks give it a more cool appearance, and it is also a little cheaper. These elements combine to make the Ibiza a very attractive proposition in an especially competitive sector. Available in three and five door form, with petrol and diesel engines and seven trim levels, there is certainly plenty of choice. My recent test model was a mid-range 5-door Ibiza Vista powered by a 1.0 litre 75 hp petrol engine, and priced at £13,445. Despite racy looks, this model is rather slow to 60 mph - 14.8 seconds – yet oddly, doesn’t feel sluggish thanks to its smoothness and agility. Top speed is 107 mph and the fuel figure is 54.8 mpg combined. You get a lot of features for the money, including airconditioning, front fogs, LED daytime running lights, 5-inch colour touchscreen, alloy wheels, cruise control, hill-hold control, DAB radio and Bluetooth.

Sleek lines give the Ibiza a stronger visual impact than most in the class, and the cabin is very smart, with goodquality trim materials and a well-thought-out functional dashboard. The twin-dial instrumentation is clear and the chrome-finished circular air vents add a nice sporty touch. You get a good driving position and once underway you find the Ibiza very composed, with positive steering and the slick 5-speed gearshift making driving very enjoyable. The suspension is a tad firmer than some rivals but still comfortable and helps give minimal body roll on tighter corners. In urban and rural driving it just flows along nicely. Cabin space up front is very good but the sloping roofline - lower than most in the sector for a more sporty look - does curb rear headroom. Boot space is 292 litres, fairly typical by class standards and this can be boosted to 847 litres by folding the seats. A plus-point here is that the rear seats do fold completely flat which enables the loading of more bulky items. Summing up, the Ibiza offers more visual personality, better driving dynamics and more standard kit than you tend to get in this price bracket, and it should be on the short list of anyone seeking a value for money supermini.

VIVARO TOP VAN

Vauxhall built over 60,000 vans at its Luton plant last year, making it Britain’s number one van maker for the 14th year running, according to figures released by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders.The sales were headed by the Vivaro, which notched up over 28,000 units. Vauxhall also built over 90,000 Astras at its manufacturing plant in Ellesmere Port, Cheshire. The new Vivaro was launched in 2014, and secured 1,500 jobs at the UK’s only dedicated light commercial vehicle plant after workers won a ten-year contract and a £185 million investment. Rival Ford shut its Transit factory in Southampton 2013 making Vauxhall’s Luton facility the sole flag bearer for UK van manufacturing, on a site where over eight million vehicles have been built since 1905. The factory is a major exporter with 52 per cent of production destined for European markets. Supplier firms across the country also benefit from £600 million of business over the life cycle of the second-generation Vivaro with 40 per cent of content sourced locally from UK suppliers, up from 24 per cent for the previous van.

FOG ALERT

SPECIAL EDITIONS FROM VW Volkswagen is enhancing the appeal of more of its core models with the debut of a number of eye-catching special editions. VW says the new cars offer enhanced styling, a richer mix of equipment and keen value for money. Kicking off the latest range upgrades is the new Look up!The 1.0-litre 60 hp three-door model is offered with sporty 15-inch Fortaleza alloy wheels, unique interior trim, black wing mirror casings and black foil decals. Available in a range of prominent colours – Saturn Yellow, Tornado Red or Pure White – the new model adds almost £1,000-worth of extra equipment and styling features for its £9,995 price, an increase of just £70 over the price of the standard Move up! model. Two new Volkswagen CC Black Edition model trims, both with extra style and value, are also making their UK debuts. The new Black Edition versions add a styling pack with black front grille, electric tilting sunroof, and 18-inch Lakeville alloy wheels on the GT Black Edition and 18-inch Talladega alloy wheels on the R-line Black Edition.

Interior specification includes new Carbon Nappa leather upholstery with carbon fibre-style decorative inserts on front and side doors, plus black piano inserts in the centre console. The new special edition models are priced from £29,150 – just £575 more than the current GT and R-Line models. The stunning new Scirocco GTS (pictured)is available in both manual and DSG transmissions.Powered by a petrol engine unique to GTS, it has a top speed of 153 mph and a 0-60 mph time of 6.5 seconds. The GTS shares the Scirocco R-Line’s exterior styling kit, adding GTS-specific badging on the front grille and rear tailgate, plus black gloss door mirror casings and 65% tinted rear glass. Additional styling features inside include piano black dashboard decorative inserts, a specific GTS gearstick with golf ball effect gear knob, seatbelts with two red GTS stripes and chrome side door sill protectors. The Scirocco GTS is priced at £28,195 for the 2.0 TSI 220 hp with six-speed manual gearbox, or £29,695 for the six-speed DSG version.

Road safety charity the IAM is giving advice to motorists about driving safely in fog: Give your car windows a good clean, including the section beneath the windscreen wipers. Dust, tar, tree sap and grime build up fast, particularly at this time of year. Keep your windscreen washer topped up with screen wash to rinse off any debris while you are driving – dirty windows tend to mist up quickly, making it more difficult to see. Remember to switch on your dipped headlights and don’t rely on them switching on automatically. If visibility is less than 100 metres, switch on your fog lights, but turn them off once visibility improves. Always drive so you can stop on your own side of the road and within the distance you can see to be clear. Patches of fog will not always be of the same density and may get thicker again – be prepared to slow down. At junctions stop and listen to get as much extra information as possible about oncoming vehicles, but remember that thick fog can deaden sound and make judging speed even more difficult. A combination of fog and darkness can make it extremely difficult to see. Keep an eye out for vulnerable road users including pedestrians and cyclists, particularly on side roads and other areas of poor visibility.

FERRARI HANDLING OPTION The California T, Ferrari’s front-engined 522 hp V8 model with retractable hard top and 2+ seating configuration, is now available with a new Handling Speciale option. The Handling Speciale option offers a series of specific calibrations and a set-up that lends an extra edge, especially in Sport mode. This bespoke solution incorporates new damper settings and modified springs that make the car stiffer which, although marginally reducing the ride comfort, results in even sportier feedback, aided by the new engine sound that increases as revs rise. The gear-shift logic for the Sport mode has been modified (both in automatic and manual), resulting in faster, sportier gear engagement during both up and down shifts. The HS package also includes 16% stiffer front springs and 19% stiffer ones at the rear with a consequent increase in body control thanks to lower roll, dive and pitch. It also includes a new exhaust system with silencers featuring two primary pipes and a new geometry designed to yield an exhaust note that increases progressively as engine speed increases. California T prices starts at around £154,000.

TRAVEL

TAKING IT EASY IN TOBAGO My journey to Tobago takes me up into the hills that enclose the village, where the houses thin out and give way to tropical foliage. I pass tethered goats, bamboo thickets and drooping rain trees, eventually stopping beneath a squat white Methodist church on a hilltop. My eyes take in the kaleidoscope of chlorophyll around me: lime yellows, grass greens, deep viridians - and, in a gap between the leaves, the dark sparkle of the sea. This is my first time in the Caribbean. I’ve come to unwind. Tobago has built a burgeoning tourism industry around its image as a mellow alternative to its busier neighbours. Showy resorts and tacky clubs are scarce; beaches are unspoiled; nowhere does tourism threaten to overwhelm the community. Everything is on a manageable scale. The novel idea that you can enjoy yourself in a foreign country without infuriating the locals, upsetting their economy and wrecking their environment, which finds expression in the concept of sustainable tourism, is taking off here. And I’m spending some time within one of the pioneers of the trend on the island: Castara Retreats, a fetching cluster of wood-built lodges set among the village’s hills.

144

I’m put up in the Fisherman’s Lodge, which used to be just that, before owners Steve and Sue bought and repurposed it as a sleekly furnished guesthouse. Over a daiquiri on the Retreats’ terrace

bar, Steve, lays out his creed: he aims to draw, as far as possible, on what’s already there, such as local services and the island’s natural resources. The Retreats should be integrated into Castara’s community, not imposed on it. Steve combines a forthright pragmatism with a keen interest in the people around him. Before long, he’s worked out that I’ve never been fishing, and decides to do something about it. The pace of the days in Castara may be slow, but it picks up in Steve’s motorboat. He and his stepson, Callum, are taking me out to sea. I unspool my fishing line, lean back and study the swiftly passing coastal scenery, occasionally pausing to reel in a bonito. As our catch count climbs, the view shifts from the outer reaches of Castara’s cove to tree-capped rocky outcrops, then to white sand. We’ve reached Cotton Bay, a honeymoon-perfect beach with nobody on it - our lunch spot. The beach is inaccessible by road; we are alone with the lizards and pile of freshly caught bonito. Tobago abounds in impossibly romantic hideaways. Cotton Bay is one of a score of secluded beaches peppering the coast. From these, one spies mysterious outlying islands. The view from my room at Blue Waters Inn, a tranquil seaside hotel where I spend a few nights en route to Castara, takes in Goat Island, on which stands a solitary house that may or may not have belonged to Ian Fleming (nobody’s quite sure). Behind it, Little Tobago - an uninhabited birdwatcher’s paradise - lowers on the horizon. Then there’s Tobago’s dense Forest Reserve, the oldest forest conservation zone in the western hemisphere (est. 1776), and home to a delightful array of flora, fauna and purling waterfalls.

I meet tour guide Harris McDonald, a great trunk of a man, outside my lodge. As he drives us to the forest, he talks. He jumps between anecdotes about the colonial powers’ adventures in Tobago and stories of his personal conquests on its beaches, as if they’re all part of one grand historical narrative. I can’t get a word in edgeways. But when we park the car and walk into the forest, its effect on Harris is sudden. He stops talking, except to point out gold-chested birds and silverwinged butterflies in hushed tones. With his machete, he carves a path through the undergrowth beside the Goldsborough River, the cracking of the falling branches punctuating the steady babble of the water. By the time we reach the remote Twin Rivers Waterfall, sploshing into a clear pool wide enough for swimming, that familiar island peace is upon us. The sun sets early in Tobago. Back at the Retreats, the guests gather at the bar for their sundowners, while hummingbirds flock to the feeders that ornament the terrace. Here, the resort’s manager, Porridge - so called because he couldn’t stop eating the stuff as a kid - is holding court. He flashes me a grin and hands over a shot of rum, topped up with a lime cordial served by Tillie, the bar’s resident mixologist. It’s fitting that a man who knows everyone in Castara manages the Retreats, for this is the most convivial of resorts - the sort of place where all the guests will have met, shared a drink and an in-joke or two, by the end of their stay. My driver takes me over to Pigeon Point, Tobago’s westernmost tip. I’ve signed up for what’s mysteriously billed as a “night bioluminescence tour”.

Guided by Brett, a peppy Ryan Gosling lookalike with a volatile American-Trinidadian accent, we paddle out from the shore into the dark. Half an hour in, my arms aching and my head throbbing with halfdigested rum, I’m ready to pack it in - when Brett cries out: “Look!” In the water, my paddle has become studded with sparks of blue-white light. This “bioluminescence”, Brett explains, is produced by marine plankton, which glow when agitated. As we approach the mangroves, the sparks multiply, rallying around my arms and feet as I dip them in the water. We are now so far from the shore that this is the only light I see. I feel as if I’m trailing my limbs through the night sky.

Pigeon Point Beach and Jetty, Tobago (Photo credit: PA Photo/Handout)

The sun also rises early in Tobago. On my last day, I get up at dawn and head to the beach, where the local fishermen are casting a net the size of Belgium in the bay. I watch them scan the waters for fish and adjust their huge mesh. The scent of baking wafting over from behind me announces that the bakers of Castara have fired up their clay oven. I head into the village, passing the convenience store, with its stacks of Du Mauriers, and Cheno’s Cafe, where guests from the Retreats sit sipping juice with Porridge. Faces grown familiar pass me on the way, and we nod good morning. The cicadas are stirring; I walk up to join them among the trees in the hills. And from there I see it all below me in the brightening air: the houses, the people, the white sand and the dark sea beyond, all calm. Once more, Tobago is working its charm - the clamour of city life has never seemed further away. The Argyle Waterfall, Tobago (Photo credit: Photo/Natalie Kriwy)

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

THE PIG HOTEL A squeal of a time by Charlotte Williams

We arrived early afternoon, on a rare sunny day, during the dampest week on record. Beyond the winding country lane, tucked behind shrouded hedges, stood The Pig. The presence of this country mansion rendered us wide-eyed and open-mouthed, momentarily unable to move for fear the infamous clock would chime midnight and all would melt before us, a building of this stature certainly wagered a ‘fairytale-esque’ tragedy. A quick pinch to prove it was all real, and onward we went. It’s a strange feeling to be on the one hand so at home and on the other, in awe of every detail around you. You can almost imagine a time where wealthy Lords and Ladies spent their Summers leisurely lolling with iced teas and fine finger food. Though they might have swapped the iced teas for signature cocktails, sat in one of their many rooms you certainly feel a part of something truly grand. Housed in the main manor are two lounges, a cosy bar, the dining room, and rooms on the floor above, not forgetting the many little hideaways, but we shall leave you to discover those for yourself.

146

We were seated in their cosy lounge bar for predinner cocktails and ‘piggy bits’. I, a self-confessed meat addict, was presented with their famous ‘saddleback pork crackling’, and my dinner companion a sworn vegetarian, (how I admire her willpower and kind heart), the quails eggs. For whatever reason, we as Brits haven’t quite followed

our European cousins in their leisurely dining style, so how refreshing it was to be encouraged to sit back, relax and enjoy a long lunch. Rest assured this wasn’t paired with any kind of abandonment. Our servers were utterly attentive and management also checked-in to see we were being looked after. One or two ‘Lemongrass Collins’ cocktails later, we were taken through to their stunning dinning room. Sat at a table for two with a garden view, no expense has been spared in creating the perfect setting. Of course the usual suspects are present, water and wine glasses, silver wear, but there are also a few very special additions we weren’t expecting. Our waitress took the liberty of explaining what we had before us, which instantly made us feel at ease. There is nothing worse than that feeling of slight inferiority, which can sometimes come from fine dining. Refraining from asking questions for fear of looking out of place, here that wasn’t an issue. On our table was a bottle of herb infused oil, accompanied by a trinket-sized pot of smoked-salt (smoked on their premises may I had). This was all part of the plan for the homemade bread, which was to come. Now seated comfortably, with a piece of smoky oil soaked bread in the one hand, and a glass of red in the other we began our selection process. It all looked divine, truly, we knew making a decision wouldn’t be easy, so we employed the help of our waitress once again. They have really paid attention to people’s food needs, not only catering to vegetarians, but also having a specific menu filled with tons of unusual and exciting options, to be honest, even a meat eater like myself would be equally satisfied with the options on this menu. The

waitress made her recommendations and putting our complete faith in her, we ordered accordingly. In order to maintain their sustainable approach to food, their menu is changed ever day or so, so I pray for the purpose of this article you don’t get too attached to the dishes themselves so much as the overall experience and evidence of the quality of the food. On that note, onwards to the starters...

PERFECT FOR

I began with my plate of porky paradise. So good, it felt sinful; excited by the contrast between the deeply satisfying sealed fat, and crispiness of the coating, I was sure I had died and gone to foodie heaven. The only thing I had as a bargaining chip for my sins were the toasted chickpeas, which accompanied the dish, “please food police, I have been healthy, right?” For main I continued on my path to food enlightenment, but let’s park that momentarily, and indulge in my guest’s dish, a ‘new age gnocchi’. Nothing about this dish was ordinary, not a conventional potato pasta in sight! Their take on an Italian classic was genius, potato and goats cheese balls, rolled in a rosemary crumb, with the quintessentially Mediterranean drizzle of oil. Nothing short of stunning – I hope the seasons are kind, and keep this dish forever in their favour. For my main; a locally sourced venison loin. If you’ve never had the pleasure of trying venison before, imagine the texture of a fillet steak, with a more robust flavour. Now imagine it cooked to perfection, the outside seared, only to slice in to reveal a blush pink center. Not forgetting our chosen side, the ‘cheese topped polenta pot’ – cheese topped, need we say more? Our food tale concludes, as so many before have, with dessert. The menu was made up of worldrenowned puddings, with a British twist. Making use of seasonal produce, (grown on site, or no more than 25 miles away), their take on a trifle, was a homage to the ever underappreciated ‘apple’. There are certain dishes, that we believe cannot compare to that of the ones our parents would make for us as children, for me this is the trifle. I’ll let you in on a little secret (let’s hope my dear old ma doesn’t pick up this issue), I think I might have just found my new supplier. Nostalgia conjuring flavour memories of mucky faces came flooding in, but this time, I wasn’t allowing any of it to miss my mouth. A somewhat more modern after dinner special was the ‘Iced Late Terrine’ that my co-pilot had, and that I just had to try of course. The first bite – Whoosh! An aromatic coffee hit. Much like a parfait, it was both cool and creamy, with the interesting addition of crumbled sugar glass. It was the perfect ending to an incredible feast, but this story doesn’t end at dessert – we were invited to stay the evening. Me and my now ‘roomie’ sauntered to reception, where we met the most charming staff, who handed us the keys to our very own room, but I’ll come back

to the that later, first, head chef Dan took the time to give us a tour of the grounds in which they grow their produce. Row upon row, shed upon shed of fresh herbs, vegetables, fruits and even some livestock – it was inspiring. Dan talked us through the many things growing in their garden, he told us how important it was to him that the produce be respected, not just in the sense of keeping them alive and well, but in the way in which they should be used in dishes. The idea that if you highlight the best the produce has to offer, it will return the favour in delicious spoils. Not that we’re disregarding the skill of our chef - of course it helps if the master of the helm knows what they are doing – and with Dan as captain you’re in good hands. As well as their gardens we got the chance to visit their ‘smoke shed’. A humble but powerful wooden hut powered by a simple pond motor and flavoured with sawdust donated by a local carpenter. It seems their creative food team love experimenting; on our visit they were smoking multiple products including salt, cane sugar, and lavender, but their claim to fame is there home smoked salmon. Sadly we didn’t get the chance to try it this time (those salmons aren’t quite swimming in this neck of the woods this time of year), but we are told it’s nothing short of stunning. After our tour we retired to our quaint twin room, hiding above the herb gardens. The shabby chic theme continues, where luxurious bedding and beautiful fabrics meet rustic wooden tables and shabby chic furnishings. Waiting for us was a bottle of local sparkling wine – is there no end to their hospitality? After we unpacked and got ourselves settled, it was time to investigate the bathroom. A vintage

roll-top tub lay by the window, the blinds slanted so other guests couldn’t see in, but you could still take in the scenic view whilst getting sudsy. After being encouraged to take advantage of the luxury products, I thought it best to do as I was told. So into the tub I went, fizz in hand. Well what hotel stay would be complete without the classic toweling robe? Wrapping myself up I joined my roommate in a ‘chick flick’ marathon. That’s right – if you head to reception they’ll provide you with a list of films to choose from that you can take back to your room, perfect for our girly night in! Well all good things must come to an end and so we sunk into our marshmallow pillows and let the soundtrack to a certain New York city based chick flick soothe us to sleep. Thank you to everyone that looked after us. You have won our hearts, and we hope we can come and visit again soon.

SWEETEN THE SUGAR-FREE DEAL

There is no sugar-coating the fact that sugar consumption is having an impact on our waistlines, teeth, moods and overall health and wellbeing. From reports that slashing the amount of sugar in sweetened drinks by 40% could prevent 300,000 cases of Type 2 diabetes, to news that the average five-year-old consumes the equivalent of their own body weight in sugar in a year, reducing the white stuff has become something of a national priority.

Yet while many are painfully aware of the destructive influence of sugar (that’ll be the 3pm grumps, ageing skin and bingo wings then), it doesn’t help that: A, sugar is added to lots of food and drinks, even unsuspecting savoury products; B, sugar is embedded in our daily diets (hello, midmorning biscuits with a cuppa), and C, it tastes nice. Here to help is cookery writer Susanna Booth, who used her polymer chemistry degree to create sugar-

free goodies that don’t sacrifice taste, sweetly displayed in her new recipe book, Sensationally Sugar Free. But with sugar playing “quite a big role in a lot of baking”, the challenge was to find a way of adding texture and crunch - which sugar provides - as well as sweetness. So far, Booth’s recipes (in which she uses apple puree, sweeteners like stevia and naturally sweet fruits) have been well received by her friends and family. The key, she says, is to accept that sugar-free deserts will taste different to sugar-laden versions of the same dish. “If you put my carrot cake next to another carrot cake that was made with sugar, you would notice how much less sweet it is,” says Booth. “But actually, most of the time, you don’t really want loads of sweetness. In a way, I think you just become accustomed to it.”

Although not completely sugar-free, Booth “cooks from scratch”, so she can keep track of how much sugar she and her family eat. By Keeley Bolger, Press Association If you’d like to give Booth’s method a whirl, here are two lovely recipes from Sensationally Sugar Free to try at home...

1 Earl Grey teabag 110g pitted dried dates 75g wholemeal plain flour 25g cocoa powder 100g unsalted butter, very soft, plus extra for greasing 2 eggs 2tsp baking powder Pinch of ground cloves Pinch of salt 50g no-added-sugar plain dark chocolate, plus extra for decorating

Method Use the teabag to make a pot of tea, using about 150ml boiling water and leaving it to brew for five minutes. Pour off the tea into a measuring jug, then soak the dates in 125ml of the tea for at least four hours or overnight, reserving the remaining tea for the ganache. When the dates are softened and have absorbed most of the tea, preheat the oven to 180C/160C fan/Gas mark 4. Lightly grease a 22 x 11 x 7cm/1kg loaf tin with a little butter. Place the soaked dates, and the tea they were soaking in, in a food processor and process until smooth. Add the flour, cocoa powder, butter, eggs, baking powder, cloves and salt and process for three to four seconds, until everything has combined. Scoop the cake mixture into the tin and smooth the top with a spatula. Bake for 30 minutes until well-risen and an inserted skewer comes out clean. Leave to cool in the tin before removing and placing on a serving plate.

Meanwhile, make the ganache. Break up the chocolate into small pieces and place in a small saucepan with the reserved tea over a low heat until the chocolate has melted, then stir well. Pour into a bowl and chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes until the mixture has set. Spread it on the cooled cake. Use a vegetable peeler to create curls of chocolate and sprinkle over the top of the ganache to decorate. Eat within two to three days.

baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes until wellrisen and browned.

Mix both flours and the baking powder together in a large bowl. Add the butter and rub in with your fingertips until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs (you can pulse the ingredients in a food processor if you prefer). Pour in the rice milk and milk. Stir everything together, then get your hands in and knead the mixture into a dough.

To make the topping, stir the strawberry slices, vinegar and pepper together in a saucepan over a medium heat for five minutes, taking care not to let the mixture boil.

Whip the cream until it forms soft peaks.

For the topping: 500g fresh strawberries, hulled and thinly sliced 2tsp balsamic vinegar 1/4tsp ground black pepper 300ml whipping cream

PERFECT FOR Date night Valentines Day Leisurely business lunches Ladies who lunch Schpoons & Forx, Hilton Bournemouth, Terrace Road, Bournemouth, BH2 5EL

o1202 804775

SCHPOONS AND FORX - SCHUUUPER GOOD! The long awaited arrival of Bournemouth’s newest crowning glory has been unveiled, and what lies beneath is truly something special.

accessories. Well, I suppose now having a little background it’s only fair to indulge you in the good stuff – The food.

Although this review took place just weeks ago, the Schpoons and Forx story began several centuries before (the seventeenth century to be precise), with a ‘Mr. Bertram Bell’. Though you may never have heard the name, Bell is the essence of this culinary emporium.

To start, ‘Roasted ox tongue, spiced beetroot pickle and horseradish’. It would be fair to say that tongue is probably not something one has a hankering for, I’m sure few have uttered the words, ‘I am just craving some delicious tongue’. Well we think S&F’s culinary genius could have tongue as the new ‘IT’ meat before the year is up. I was presented with three disks of meat heaven, served on a bed of finely diced pickled beetroot, topped with an ultra delicate horseradish mousse, and shavings of zest, oh, the multiple flavour explosions! The tongue itself was pull-apart perfection, encased in a delicately crispy coating. Then our chef teases us with a taste-bud tennis match between sweet and spicy. A great dish does not limit you to just one taste, but rather takes you on a journey of flavours, and that is the essence of this dish.

Bertram Bell was a proud craftsman, descendent from a long line of Master Cutlers before him. His legacy, however, was not his craft, but rather his torturing inability to pronounce his s’s properly, not ideal for a public speaker. The Cutlers’ Feast of 1733 was the most coveted event for the craft community. Alas Bell wasn’t filled with joy, rather trepidation. For the burden of performing this year’s speech loomed over him. The party was sensational: decedent foods, the music playing, the wine flowing, the atmosphere was wonderful. The time for his speech arrives, and Bell takes to his podium. Ever fearful of the almost certain teasing that was to come, he nervously begins to read; only this time there was no such torment? In fact they embraced his slurring! And so, in paying tribute to his work in tableware, “Schpoons and Forx” was born. Inspired by the pomp and ceremony of a banquet such as The Cutlers’ Feast, Schpoons & Forx is Chef Matt Tebbutt’s take on an English tradition. Drawing on the simple pleasures of a shared meal in good company. I had the pleasure of speaking with Matt who shared his vision for the future of ‘S&F’. Considering his status, he was completely humble and spent the majority of time speaking about his team and the restaurant, it really was touching.

Their wine list is comprised of some real underdogs (and who doesn’t love an underdog?), but we were beyond pleasantly surprised with the clarity and individuality of each of them. Someone has most definitely taken time and care in selecting only the best for their customers, and moreover the staff really know their stuff. Spoilt for choice, we turned to restaurant manager Andy, to help us choose our beverages. Rather than posing the further confusing question “what do you like?” – Instead he queried what we would be eating and selected our wines accordingly. Brimming with genuine excitement for the decisions he had made, we couldn’t help being infected by his passion. This refreshing attitude to service doesn’t end with Andy. In fact their entire team were the wonderful. Bursting with knowledge, there were no questions they couldn’t answer, and furthermore courteous and utterly charming. Now having strayed long enough, time to return to the food.

The décor is stunning, with highly polished mirrored tables, plush furnishings, all topped off with an essence of ‘quirky chic’. Feeding their tableware obsession, the entire space is filled with homages to spoons and forks; flowerpots, lightshades, metallic transfers – all dedicated to our favourite dinning

Ever in pursuit of discovering something new, I chose the ‘Smoked haddock risotto, with mascarpone and soft herbs’. The aroma alone instantly captured my full and undivided attention. The fresh fish, the citrus notes, and the subtly of the herbs, so good perfumers could have bottled it and sold it as ‘eau

de délicieuse’. The entire dish was moreish and well balanced, and whilst my colleagues tucked into perfect steaks and other popular meaty marvels, this dish was just perfect for me. Dessert? No I couldn’t possibly…well for good measure I took a little look, just a look I was sure, until I came across my kryptonite. There amongst the Crème Brule and the classic Panna Cotta, there it was: Chocolate tart, with Crème fraîche – a very simple title for such a decedent dish. It was all I hoped it would be. The crust was buttery and crumbled upon bite. The chocolate was mouthful upon mouthful of deeply rich and smooth cocoa, with the crème fraîche saving you from sickly sweet death by chocolate. Overall our visit was delightful. The food was incredible, the staff were brilliant and the atmosphere was spot on. Bear in mind their food ethos is based on a relaxed dining experience, so be advised to go on a day where time is not in short supply, you’ll want to fully immerse yourself in this one.

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.

This week I thought I would chat about food, rather than exercise and working out. Over more recent years I’ve started to become a little more educated on the importance of our diet as well as working out, they go hand in hand. To be truly fit and healthy you need to have a good diet and be working out at a good level, at least 3 times a week. I choose not to talk about the food side too often because, well let’s face it anyone who knows me knows how much I love my food. I’m not talking about egg plant spaghetti with no sugar sauce with extra coriander. Oh no. I unfortunately have a sweet tooth and am therefore a fan of chocolate (massive fan), cakes and ice cream. Actually, I quite like savouries too, I love cheese, dips and sauces. You know what, I’m just a big foodie. So I do understand how hard it can be to get our eating habits under control. Personally for me I don’t necessarily agree with completely cutting things out from your diet. I do understand there are different reasons that we may have to do this health wise and ethically speaking. However sometimes when we remove certain things from our diet we just end up craving it more. I certainly believe in everything in moderation. If you want a pie, have a pie just make sure you have lots of fresh veg with it and its packed full of protein to fill you up. If you want chocolate have some but try and make it dark chocolate (this is actually considered a health food now - Whoop whoop!), as this contains much less sugar. I’ve put together a few more tips which may help you if you struggle with your food habits, take from them whatever you can. Curb your alcohol consumption 1 glass of wine can = 4 cookies It also tempts snacking. On a hangover we usually eat rubbish food too. So if you do drink try and swap beer and wine for a Gin & Tonic.

154

Keep a food diary. This is a good one, we all tend to accidently forget what managed to pass by our lips through out the day. I guarantee you that you will be shocked if

QUIT TALKING START DOING you write down EVERYTHING you eat and drink throughout the day. Sometimes we are on such autopilot that we don’t even realise we have eaten something. When you see it there in black and white it can be quite a shock to the system and a good way to pin point our bad habits. Go for bulky moist foods I know it sounds weird but the science behind this is that air and water will actually fill you up quicker. So the more air and water in food the fuller you will feel, examples being popcorn, soup and fruit etc. Fat takes longer to make you feel full than protein. So basically you’re going to eat fatty foods for longer and in larger quantities before you feel full than you would if you were eating protein. So at least eat your protein first so you can start to fill up on it. Stay hydrated We often mistake the feeling of thirst for hunger. If you do feel hungry have a large drink first then see how you feel. Try to eat as natural as possible Processed foods are energy dense so generally contain more calories Apples Apples promote a feeling of fullness so try and eat one 20 minutes before a meal Prepare your own food So it’s all there ready for you when you finish work or you can just grab a snack and go. Some of the

worst food for us is processed snack foods, so if you can make your own healthy version ready for when you poke your head in the fridge then great. Don’t give up So you had porridge with almond milk for breakfast a handful of blueberries as a snack then lunchtime you had a beautiful salmon salad followed by a chunky KitKat that fell out the vending machine onto you! Don’t panic, it’s not the end. You don’t have to console yourself with a family size bag of crisps and two donuts because you’ve ruined everything. Give yourself a break. Take a big deep breath leave the sugar out of your coffee and train extra hard in that class later. These are just tips so take anything which may help you, but please remember as I said previously diet and exercise come hand in hand. There’s no point in doing one without the other, so get yourself active too. Swimming, cycling, jogging and of course Bootcamp and/or Thai boxing are great and interesting ways of keeping fit. Please check out our website at fitterthanfit.co.uk for all classes on the timetable. And just to let you know one of our new classes is an “Insanity” class which is an amazing way to get in shape. I’m sure you’ve all heard of or maybe seen clips of these work outs. They are very effective. We have a great insanity qualified instructor, Holly, for these classes that run on a Wednesday, 6:30pm at our Boscombe gym. Be warned though we only have spaces for 10 people and they seem to be filling up fast so please ring and book this class with us, £5 a session is a bargain (free to our members).

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

Taking the art of traditional Japanese taiko drumming to a new level, Kodo bring their groundbreaking performance Mystery to Lighthouse, Poole’s centre for the arts. Aiming to transcend the real world and take the audience to a place where Japan’s traditional sacred beasts appear, the Kodo drummers express the reverence for nature that has been a tradition in Japan since ancient times. Kodo has seen a departure from its traditional costume styles and musical direction since Tamasaburo Bando took the helm as artistic director in 2012. Mystery represents a further evolution and promises to transport both seasoned fans and first-time viewers alike to uncharted artistic territory. Since the group’s debut at the Berlin Festival in 1981, Kodo has given more than 5,500 performances in 47 countries on five continents. This figure includes 3,700 performances under the One Earth banner, a theme that embodies Kodo’s desire to transcend language and cultural boundaries, while reminding audiences of the common bonds we all share as human beings.
