MORE YOUNG PEOPLE RENTING A new report from the independent Social Market Foundation think tank has suggested that close to 2 million more young people have been unable to get on the property ladder since 2001; forcing them in to rented accommodation. The report says if home ownership among 25-34 year olds were the same now as they were in 2001 there would be another 1.8million owner occupiers. However, high house prices, strict lending criteria and the large deposit requirements make it difficult for young people to purchase property. Kate West, Divisional Lettings Director for Goadsbys Central Region, reports “Renting property has become far more popular as lifestyles have become far more flexible. People are more likely to move to study and to move for the right job and renting for these people offers far more flexibility than buying property. The large deposit requirement to purchase property also restricts some from buying and therefore into private rented accommodation.” Should you have a property that you are considering renting or a property that is currently struggling to let then please call Kate to discuss in more detail; 01202 544644 or email kate.west@goadsby.com

BOURNEMOUTH AIR FESTIVAL PATRONS CLUB

LUCID INVENTORIES

Established in 2010, as an alternative and unique way for businesses and individuals to support the Air Festival, the Patrons Club has gone from a once a year gathering to a monthly networking and celebration of the UK’s best aviation event!

Do you rent out a property? Are you an letting agent looking after properties for investors?

The Club financially supports the evening Night Air aircraft displays as well as giving a donation to the annual military nominated forces charities – which for 2016 are The Jon Egging Trust, ABF – The Soldiers Charity and the Royal Navy Royal Marines Charity. In 2010 members financed one night air display and now we are proud and delighted to have the backing and support of so many members, both old and new, that we are able to fund displays on Thursday, Friday and Saturday – a great achievement for everyone involved! Each month the club hosts a free member’s event (at a Bournemouth hotel/venue) with an air festival related guest speaker. There is a minimum donation of £250 per year to join & put simply the earlier you join the better the benefits. Booked for this year are The Blades, RN Black Cats and the RAF presentation Team with more to be announced.

The BAF Patrons Club Ambassador is David Bailey from Hotel Miramar, who has been closely involved in the air festival for many years, supporting the team at Bournemouth Tourism. “The Bournemouth Air Festival Patrons Club is a great way for local businesses and individuals to give something back to the local community. The Air Festival is now regarded as one of the best of its kind in the world, a free event which is good for our town and good for Dorset. This year we have a ‘money can’t buy’ experience exclusively for Patron Club members – with a VIP visit to a Royal Navy ship during the festival. That alone has to be worth joining for!” For information, and downloadable membership form, visit bournemouthair. co.uk or follow us on Facebook / Bournemouth Air Festival Patrons Club or email bafpatrons@miramarbournemouth.com

SPRING HAS SPRUNG FOR SELLERS, SAYS FOX & SONS Spring is a time for new beginnings, and particularly for those wanting to move home, according to local estate agency Fox & Sons in Poole. The team at the branch is currently gearing up for the usual flurry of buyers looking for a new home as the weather gets warmer, and is urging local home owners to beat the spring rush and get their homes on the market now. Traditionally, Fox & Sons sees a significant uplift in market activity over the spring period, with parent company Sequence UK recording a 13% rise in customers registering their interest for properties over the past few years*: “This is one of the best times of the year to sell a property,” says William Shouler, Branch Manager at the Poole branch. “We always have a burst of activity when spring kicks in so I recommend

that anyone looking to sell this year takes advantage of this and gets their property on the market in good time for the rush.” As the sun comes out and flowers start to bloom, spring is also advantageous from the seller’s perspective. “Spring flowers and sunshine can help make your property look so much more appealing and will give an enhanced marketing experience with much more aesthetically pleasing photos to show your home off to its full potential,” explains William. “Longer days also allow for more viewings in daylight hours so potential buyers get a much better first impression of your home.” For more information on the local property market or to book a free market appraisal, contact your local Fox & Sons branch on 01202 672736 or email: poole@ sequencehome.co.uk.

HONESTY BEING APPRECIATED - SO FAR... SK Property Group pride themselves on NOT being the ‘norm’, the look, the predictive spiel - everything that results in the negative perception of agents. Their refreshing approach to their work has reaped the rewards. “We are happy to report a 100% success rate with market appraisals and instructions, don’t get me wrong there will be people that don’t accept an honest achievable valuation due to ‘agent 2’ giving an inflated valuation of £15,000 more but so far everyone has bought into what we have said” Simon Kerley, Director. Already SK Property Group are collecting some stunning testimonials: “I can’t believe how professional you have both been”, Mrs. G, Vendor “I wasted 12 weeks with another agent, I received your leaflet, gave you a call and

never looked back. Your approach proved to me that not all agents are the same”, Mr M, Vendor. “We were first time buyers and quite daunted at the prospect of spending so much money- Douglas and Simon were with us every step of the way and even met with us for a coffee on a Sunday when we thought everything was going wrong”, Miss P, Purchaser “We have the same ‘tools’ as every other agent- we just use them in a more proactive way, we make your property work for you and do what we say we are going to do. We aim to help everyone that gets in contact so we look forward to hearing from you soon”, Douglas StirlingKibble, Director SK Property Group welcome all enquiries and promise to give the same attentive and due diligence to each and every person. 01202 287487.

SUNMONKEY - A TANNING SALON WITH A CONSCIENCE The year of the monkey see’s the launch of Sunmonkey, a state-of-the-art tanning salon in the heart of The Triangle. Co-owners Seth Curzon-Hope and Paula Street are proud to offer six of the latest sunbeds and sun showers, and a full range of premium lotions.

safety. They’re one of the first salons in Bournemouth to fully comply with the latest EU regulations governing the UV output of sunbeds. Although the legislation is current, many salons have yet to comply. Trading Standards Officers will no doubt point them in the right direction.

The salon itself is unusually spacious, a welcome change from the claustrophobic environment normally found in tanning salons. The decor has an air of luxury without pretence and some truly original styling.

“Given the expense involved in replacing up to 60 lamps per bed, it’ll take a while for every salon to get up to speed. But the legislation is not Health and Safety gone potty. This is based on the best research to date and the new regulations ultimately benefit the consumer. Yes it may take a little longer to achieve that desired tan but it’ll be a deeper, longer lasting tan.”

The ethos at Sunmonkey is clear though, “We’re not reinventing the wheel but areas like hygiene, sunbed maintenance and customer care are the absolute basics for Sunmonkey, to get these key points wrong is inexcusable. After that we’ll continue to develop[ our product knowledge and ensure that all staff will be properly trained and certificated by our suppliers and The Sunbed Association.”

STUNNING APARTMENTS AVAILABLE IN CHARMINSTER Churchfield are excited to offer two brand newly converted two bedroom apartments located above our offices on Charminster high street. Beautifully presented throughout with modern and contemporary features these apartments have been finished to a high specification. The apartments offer open plan kitchen/living rooms with two good sized bedrooms and stylish bathroom suites, one with shower over bath and one with shower unit. With a lack of quality accommodation available on the rental market Churchfield are expecting to secure tenants quickly – don’t miss out take a look on their website www. churchfield.uk.com (Apartments priced at £800 PCM and £850 PCM).

LANDLORDS - ARE YOU GETTING THE MOST FROM YOUR RENTAL INVESTMENT?

Tenants are savvy too and quite rightly so. They know what’s available on the market and therefore know exactly what they can get for their money. They know what they want and often aren’t afraid of negotiating. So now more than ever, it’s important to ensure that you are doing all you can to make sure you are getting the most out of your investment and the best return on your money. While some landlords might be hesitant spending money on a property that they don’t live in, it is important to take a longer term approach and invest in making your property the best it can be. A new kitchen, fresh paint or new carpets can go a long way in not only adding to the appeal when letting the property, it can also mean that tenants want to stay there longer and the amount of rent you receive will naturally reflect it’s condition. In many instances, the return on the money spent to improve a rental property provides an excellent return on your investment and far outweighs the usual returns a buy to let property will produce. It is important however, to ensure the amount you are spending correlates with the return you are likely to get back. In most instances, £5000 spent on improvements to a property, will produce an additional £50 per month in rent. This equates to a 12% return on your additional investment.

The changes announced last year regarding mortgage interest relief being capped at 20% from 2017 have naturally pushed some Landlords into considering selling their buy to let properties. Some reports claim some 200,000 Landlords are primed to leave the market however with the current volatility of the stock market and interest rates remaining at an historic low, bricks and mortar are still proving to be one of the most stable and lucrative investments. With some simple improvements to your buy to let property, you could not only improve the capital value of your investment, but increase your yield, helping to counteract Mr Osbourne’s latest measures! At Winkworth, we constantly monitor market conditions, legislation changes, the availability of property and the condition of our client’s rental properties in order to ensure the rental being achieved is at the correct level and our Landlords investments and indeed best interest are being looked after. If you are currently renting your property privately or through another agent and feel it is time for a fresh, hassle free approach which could also maximise your investment, please call out Lettings team today on 01202 767313.

It’s a competitive market out there with an abundance of quality properties available with Landlords all seeking the same thing as you - minimum void periods, a good rent and a long term, respectful, happy tenant.

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

Help to Buy ISA – the facts The much-anticipated Help to Buy ISA launched on 1st December 2015, coming just in time as more people find it challenging to save a deposit on house prices that seem to keep on climbing. Here are three of the big questions you may be asking about the government’s new saving scheme: Am I eligible for the Help to Buy ISA? If you’re a first-time buyer, 16 and over and are looking to buy a UK property worth up to £250,000 (£450,000 in London), then

SETTING YOU ON THE PATH TO GARDENING SUCCESS

you will be eligible for the Help to Buy ISA. If you already pay into a Cash ISA, unfortunately you will have to wait until the next tax year in April to open and start saving with a Help to Buy ISA. The accounts are available through lots of banks and building societies across the UK, so contact yours or keep an eye on the high street for the latest news. How much can I save? By saving up to £200 a month towards your home, the Help to Buy ISA and the government will increase your savings by 25%, or up to £50 a month. This means if you saved £200 a month for 5 years, your £12,000 savings will be boosted to £15,000! Accounts are limited to one per person, not per home, which means a couple buying together can receive a £6,000 bonus on their savings for a house! You can make an initial deposit of £1,000 when you open the Help to Buy ISA in addition to normal savings. You can save a maximum of £200 a month and interest earned on ISAs are also tax-free. There is no minimum monthly deposit, although providers can choose to impose one if they so wish. How long can I save for and when will I receive my bonus? The new accounts will be available for the next 4 years, but once opened, there is no limit on how you long you can save for. There is a minimum overall bonus of £400, maximum of £3,000, which you will receive when you buy your first home.

With a reputation for providing quality products at competitive prices look no further for all your outdoor and landscaping requirements. Have a question or need advice? Call me on 01202 651300

or email at matt@cherryfinance.co.uk or visit our website www.cherryfinance.co.uk. Your home may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on your mortgage. There will be a fee for the advice given, the exact amount will depend upon your circumstances but we estimate it will be £250.

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

Letters from readers

ASK THE EXPERT...

About planning your move Steve Webber, Director of Maidmans Moving & Storage Steve has many years experience in the moving and storage industry. He offers the following advice about planning your move. Steve says: “It is always advisable to call in a removals company at least 4 weeks in advance of your anticipated moving date. Careful organisation and forward planning can certainly minimise the stress of moving house. At Maidmans we are happy to offer a quotation as soon as you consider moving, to help you budget. We can work from a provisional moving date and once you have a firm date, we can revisit and refine the quotation with any specific requirements you may need. It is our policy to turn around all our quotations within a 24-hour period. When you sign & return the acceptance we will arrange the move for you.”

My fixed rate term comes to an end soon and I was wondering if I should have a tracker mortgage or another fixed rate. The tracker is about £40 per month less. What do you think? - Adrian and Alison, Poole Fixed rate versus tracker has been a question posed to me by many a client when they are re-mortgaging. My view is how much risk are you prepared to take? Sure, the tracker is £40 less per month but for how many more months will interest rates stay at the record low of 0.50%? If you believe the reports that rates will rise soon then go for another fixed rate. I’m not an economist but I am an observer of the world around me and my belief is that interest rates are going to stay low for a lot longer than is being announced by official sources. Not only would I take the risk, I have taken the risk recently when I remortgaged. What if they move even lower? Lenders have a floor to their tracker rates and we have reached it so even if the BoE announced negative interest rates, the latest trackers will not drop with them unfortunately. Basically, if you think they will rise in the next 12 months then fix. If you think they will stay low for longer, then opt for a tracker. Also, the more you think interest rates will rise, the longer you should fix for.

Steve suggests it will be advisable to also consider the distance you will be moving. He says: “Moving longer distances or moving to a new country may mean that you need to arrange to ship items and arrange overnight accommodation. It is worth planning ahead in case of issues such as customs and bio-security clearances, and any storage issues on arrival. Here are some other pointers to help you achieve a stress free move: • Check your home insurance covers the move. • Notify the relevant utility companies of your departure. • Arrange for your post to be forwarded. • Make a list of everyone who should be notified about the move and send out change of address cards. • Arrange a time to collect the keys for your new home from the estate agent. • Use a BAR registered remover For further information or to book a free visit and quote call

I want to be able to buy properties quickly that are at auction are being sold cheaply in a poor condition and need doing up. How can I get my hands on quick finance for deals like this? - David, Talbot Woods There are options. The most traditional route being bridging finance. The type of property, your experience and what you intend to do with it when the work is completed will determine how you raise the money. If you intend to “flip” the property, that is buy, refurbish and sell then traditional bridging finance is good. With rates from as little as 0.55% per month, bridging can be affordable, especially if you are in, out and sold in a short timeframe. Average rates are around 1% per month as a bench mark. If you want to keep the property and rent it out then there are a couple of lenders who do a bridge-to-let. You use a bridging loan to buy and do the remedial work then move onto a Buy to Let (BTL) mortgage immediately. Most BTL lenders insist that you have owned the property for 6 months before re-mortgaging so this keeps the cost of the bridge down before you move onto the BTL. However, one lender has a “hunting licence” deal where you secure a charge at up to 60% of the value of an unencumbered property and draw down when you need the funds to purchase another. You only pay interest when you draw down so it is very useful for those who need quick finance.

Maidmans, you’re in safe hands!

I look forward to receiving your letters and giving some more advice in the next issue of House.

YOUR LOCAL EYES ON THE PROPERTY MARKET

The outgoing landlord receives rent up to the day of completion. The ingoing landlord receives rent from day one, the buy to let mortgage have proof of rent being achieved and the tenants are able stay in their home. Now in its 4th year of successful trading with 95% of sales put in hand having completed. It’s success is down to the expertise involved and the total understanding of the legalities of Tenancy Law and ensuring a smooth process.

SA LE

Move On started on the 1st June 2006, with myself and my one employee, who is still with me today in a small shop. In 2011 we moved to bigger premises in Branksome and have grown to 9 employees and a fleet of 3 branded cars. We are a one stop shop for people buying, selling, renting or investing and we are experts in each field. The Move On ethos and reminded each week to each member of staff in our staff meetings, is that if someone has touched Move On in any way by phone, coming through door, meeting you on the street, that person should go away with a positive feeling.

Landlord To Landlord Sales is an award winning national estate agency dedicated to the buy to let market and giving a win-win solution for all parties involved.

R

Sharon Canning the director says “This is a phenomenal achievement and I am so very proud of where we were and where we are today as well as where the future is taking us.”

FO

MOVE ON is celebrating 10 years this year.

Over the years we have won various awards and we are presently awaiting the National Awards in June, which is amazing to be recognised as a great company.

I speak at various events to investors, we have run seminars for landlords and for the last 3 years I have produced and presented my own radio show dedicated to the property industry. It probably is fair to say I have the property blood.

I was lucky to be introduced to the property world at an early age, as my mother owned her own Estate Agent, so by the age 19 I had purchased my first property, a 3 bedroom flat for £19,500 and with a 100% mortgage (those were the days). I rented out 2 of the bedrooms and that completely covered my mortgage, which meant I became a landlord. So I am proud to say I have been a landlord for 32 years, worked in the property industry for 23 years and owned Move On for 10 years.

The success of Move On, however, falls very much on the dedicated team I have. Individually they are outstanding people and over the last few weeks and the next few weeks we will be introducing you to them on this page. Each one has a major attribute of going beyond and making sure our landlords, tenants, vendors, purchasers or investors get a VIP treatment. Each client to us is a person and not a number and happy clients makes us happy.

Neighbouring properties offer the ultimate in contemporary living in a contemporary facade and are available or have sold between the figures of £2.75million to £4.2million.

Large plot of approximately 0.35 acres, large flat level rear south west facing garden mainly laid to lawn gives you access to the private mooring and slipway.

Swing moorings are available nearby.

HEARNES – WHERE SERVICE COUNTS


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

ARE YOU IMPORTANT ENOUGH?

February has come to an end, we are two months down into 2016 and 10 months left to go. Property has most definitely seen an upward trend of activity within the market. At a Rightmove seminar recently, they reported January 26th being the busiest day of action on their website ‘ever’! On our Landlord to Landlord Sales side we have had an enormous rush of sales and purchasers desperately and successfully trying to do a deal before the 31st March stamp duty deadline, which in turn has caused a hive of ‘who hoo’ in the office and turning up Cliff Richard high over the internet singing ‘congratulations’ (try it, I promise you, you can’t help but get up and do a little jig with a smile on your face). Of course, the home owner Sales market saw a flurry of activity in January with vendors taking advantage of a ‘sellers’ market’ and I would say an element of an optimistic feeling of 2016 being the year of ‘let’s do this!’, new year, new start, house prices in majority being now worth in excess of the 2008 crash! This recession has been a long one. Papers saying house crash on its way and the next day house prices rising at a good rate. Who do we believe when we receive such conflicting reports? Of course those of you that follow my column know I love stats, but do you really want to know them, yes they can be exciting but ultimately what is important to you is can I sell my property in today’s market and can I achieve what I want and then of course how long will it take. Do I look for a property I want to buy first and then put mine on the market or do I sell mine first and then look for a property to buy, a little bit like which came first, the chicken or the egg. Ultimately it is about making sure you have the right information to start with and that has to start with how much is my property really worth and then you can start planning. There is no point in putting your property on the market if what you want to purchase is not attainable. And that is where your local agent is best to advise you. They know your area and they know the market. A good agent is worth their salt in gold, as they not only hold your hand through the whole process, but they nurture it and ensure it goes all the way to completion. You should never feel like a number, you should feel like Mr or Mrs VIP, you should be their priority from start to finish.

A CLEVER APPROACH FOR ANY BUILDING PROJECT Extending or refurbishing your home can increase both your quality of living and the value of your home. Yet many people are concerned with facing spiralling unforeseen costs, major disruption to living, and a never ending project, Alan Cass, Director at Clever Build and Design explains why planning and building your project the clever way can eradicate those fears and ensure your vision goes according to plan. In today’s society, we understand that finance is at the top of everyone’s agenda. No matter the size of any project, it is imperative that the money you invest in your property leads to a return on your investment. This doesn’t necessarily need to be a quick return, especially if you are planning to live in your home for several years to come. With this in mind, any work undertaken needs to be of the highest quality to ensure that when the time does come to move, you can reap what you’ve sewn.

One of the simplest ways to add value to your property is to freshen up your kitchen, it is well known that the majority of buyers can be swayed by an attractive and functional kitchen. It has become the heart of the house, a place to be social, a place to cook and watch the children, a place where in a busy and hectic life everyone can come together.

If you are planning to sell your property, an inviting kitchen can make the world of difference. It can be the difference between potential viewers coming to see your property and them not. What’s more it can add significant value to your sale price and deter buyers from negotiating on the basis that a new kitchen will be required as soon as they move in.

We won’t just work on your house, we will work on creating your home. Clever Build and Design work with the top kitchen designers and installers and can even bring the showroom to you. Being able to see the sample products in your own home really does add another dimension to choosing your ideal kitchen. Seeing your choice of doors or work top in the natural light of your home really does have major advantages. It allows a true representation of how it will actually

look without all the glitz and glamour of the showroom lights. We will even leave the samples with so you can see how it looks on the brightest or even gloomiest of days. Extending your home can also add real value to your property and doesn’t have to disrupt your life. Our team at Clever Build and Design are highly experienced in project planning, covering all eventualities and with the respect required for your house. From loft conversions to ground floor extensions our team can assist every step of the way. Our experts truly understand the design and planning process and will ensure you maximise every inch of available space. We can even assist with an ever growing trend of “digging down”, otherwise known as basement living which has made down the new up. In London, where space is so sought after, planning applications have doubled for basement extensions to 900, twice as high as before the financial crisis. We all know life changes, whether it is with the unexpected arrival of a new family member, caring for an elderly relative, creating a home office or simply requiring additional space, an extension can be a more cost effective solution to moving house. Many home owners now want to improve not move.


HOME IMPROVEMENTS

In a recent article in the Telegraph, George Clark gave his opinion on what makes an ugly house: “Windows, are a particular recurring nightmare: either pointlessly tiny ones, dodgy UPVC double glazing or worse, those ones with fake leaded strips to make a 1970s house look Tudoresque. Windows are like eyes on a face, so if they are wrong the whole face looks ugly.” A lot of older houses were built without making the most of the available space and without growing families in mind. What is great about extending and refurbishing your property is the ability to make your own mark on the place and not spend money on buying someone else’s vision. At Clever Build and Design we will work with you to create your own stamp on your property. Another area which can make a visually aesthetic impact to your property is to freshen up or expand your driveway. Planning permission is not required if a new or replacement driveway of any size uses permeable or porous surfacing which allows water to drain through. It is important to note that planning permission is required if the surface to be covered is more than five square meters if you are planning to lay traditional, impermeable materials which do not allow for water to run off the surface. These rules were implemented as a result of the serious flooding, which took place in 2007, causing loss of life and over 3bn GBP in damages. In the past urban drainage systems were not designed to withstand significant rainfall and could not cope with the rise in water levels which have come about due to climate change, new developments and paving over front gardens which reduces the surface area for natural drainage. At Clever Build and Design we have a wide range of permeable driveway solutions, which will give your property the makeover it deserves and ensure it is in keeping with its surroundings. We will work to your budget, manage the project from start to finish and deliver your finished driveway on time.

RECYCLING NEVER LOOKED SO GOOD At Reformed Plastics all of our products are made from 100% recycled plastic. We manufacture products ourselves and then sell direct to the Domestic and Commercial sector. Due to ever increasing importance to recycle & protect the environment, our products are made from 100% recycled plastic. The plastic used is recycled in the UK and is the perfect alternative to wood. Our aims are to help rebuild the environment by utilizing a commodity, which people would otherwise just throw away, and so turn what to some would be rubbish into a valuable product for everybody. Our products have many practical & very useful properties & has an infinite range of different uses, some of which being are as decking, fencing, outdoor furniture,

planters,

boardwalks,

landscaping,

bollards, signage & construction etc. The list of possibilities is endless and the long-term advantages it has over traditional materials are staggering! It’s a great investment, as it never needs to be replaced due to its high strength and durability, therefore it quickly pays for itself in the long run. In short, it’s worry free! We recycle plastic and then manufacture goods from it, we produce recycled plastic furniture for use in gardens and patios and we retail recycled plastic products such as recycled plastic fencing and recycled plastic decking. The concept of Reformed Plastics was born over 15 years ago from the curiosity of its founder. Being an engineer by profession, and having had his own UPVC Windows business, and also being the practical and inquisitive person that he is, one day he decided to find out what was really happening to the waste that people were so freely throwing away. His research and interest lead him to focus on plastics, how it can be recycled and what it could be reused for. He discovered that the USA & a few European countries had been recycling and remanufacturing waste plastics into alternative timber products for many years, instead of throwing it all into landfill! Over time, slowly but surely he developed a few basic products in the form of planks and posts and very soon he began to receive interest from people wanting to know more about this revolutionary product that is both an environmentally friendly alternative to normal timber and sustainable which means it will save them a lot of money in the long 138

term! From then on, the rest as they say is history.

MOTORING

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

NEW SPORTAGE SALES BOOM Kia says its all-new Sportage has caused “a showroomsensation” with around 1,500 orders being placed in the first three days it went on sale - the best-ever three-day order-take in Kia’s history! Paul Philpott, Chief Executive of Kia Motors (UK) said: ”The all-new Sportage is a significant step forward for Kia, both in terms of interior quality and dynamic refinement and sophistication – and clearly both existing and new customers recognise that. Both Kia in the UK and our factory in Slovakia are working flat-out to ensure we can keep up with demand!” The all-new Sportage range consists of 18 trim versions, three engine variants and three different transmissions. With fuel economy ranging from 37.2 to 61.4mpg combined according to engine and transmission, CO2 figures starting at 119g/ km, the new model is priced from £17,995 to £31,645.

ROAD TEST: DS4 PRESTIGE DS Automobiles is a stand-alone car brand set up by Citroen to establish more stylish premium models, and inspired by the company’s innovative DS models which were first produced in the 1950s, writes NICK FLETCHER. These niche models, devoid any any Citroen badging, certainly cut a dash in the hatchback sector. The new DS4, priced from £19,595, highlights this distinction. Beautifully styled and finished and with a lot of luxury touches, the car will appeal to those seeking something that stands out in the hatchback herd. There are petrol and diesel engines available, and I recently tested the DS4 in top-spec Prestige guise. It is powered by the very efficient 2.0 litre 180hp Blue diesel engine. Top speed is 127 mph and the 0-60 mph time quick at just 8.6 seconds. It is economical too, returning 64.2 mpg combined. Priced at £25,595, this version has stand-out looks, with re-styled grille and headlights and eye-catching DS badges. Inside, the cabin is very classy, with higher-quality trim materials evident, and a well-designed dashboard with contrasting styling details which gives it a visual lift. Front occupants get plenty of room, but larger rear passengers will find space a tad cramped, and awkwardly-

shaped rear doors make access more difficult than it might be. And surprisingly, the rear windows don’t open! However, the boot space is good at 385 litres. Rear seats fold down but not totally flat. The DS4 is well equipped even at entry level, all models get 7-inch touchscreen, sat-nav, air-conditioning, cruise control, multi-function steering wheel and smartphone connectivity. The test model adds many extra features including keyless entry and start, DAB radio, part-leather upholstery, sports fronts seats, reversing camera, 18 inch alloy wheels, and LED Xenon headlights. On the road, the DS handles well, with minimal body roll and plenty of grip. The suspension set up is firm, so it can jar on potholes, but that apart it provides good ride comfort and is particularly smooth on the motorway. The diesel unit is quiet and refined and delivers its power very smoothly. The car’s lowered road stance and smart looks certainly give it plenty of kerb-appeal and its sporty performance credentials add to its charisma. It competes against rivals such as the Audi A3 and BMW 1 Series, but there is enough about the DS4 image, styling and relative exclusivity to enable it to run proudly among such well-established opposition.

INFINITI QX30 CROSSOVER

142

Due to go on sale this summer, the all-new Infiniti QX30 crossover, joining the Q30 as part of Infiniti’s new premium compact model line-up. Petrol and diesel models will be available, but no prices have yet been announced. Says Infiniti: “The QX30 offers an elevated ride height, confidence-inspiring handling, and a versatile attitude, underpinned by an intelligent all-wheel drive system. As a result, the vehicle is able to take on urban, suburban and winding rural roads in all driving conditions.” The QX30 will be built at new manufacturing facilities in Sunderland, becoming part of Infiniti’s first car production in Europe. The QX30 comes equipped with an intelligent all-wheel drive system. The drivetrain is able to send up to 50% of the engine’s power and torque to the rear axle to maintain traction on slippery surfaces. Another standard feature is the availability of a sevenspeed dual-clutch transmission system. The dual-clutch pre-selects gears so the next shift is always ready to go, while manual mode lets the driver control gear changes.

KOH THAI RINGWOOD A little piece of Thai heaven, nestled in the New Forest You know we’re no strangers to the Koh concept, but after much arm-twisting (yeah right), we decided to visit Koh’s relatively new Ringwood enclave to see if the offering was just as sumptuous as their other branches. We ventured on one drizzly afternoon, in dire need of having our spirits lifted, and lifted they were! With already high expectations built from our previous visit to their Christchurch cousin - Koh Noi, we were excited to see what surprises were in store. The décor follows the usual east meets west theme, with handmade satin cushions, and picturesque Thai murals contrasting the exposed brick walls and high gloss wooden tables – the perfect blend of traditional Thai fused with contemporary style that Koh get spot on. This particular branch has a rather special addition, with its very own alfresco dining area, complete with tropical plants and squishy wicker sofas. We can’t wait to return in the Summer as we look forward to warmer evenings spent gazing at the stars, dimly lit by bamboo torches, surrounded by good friends, good wine and an abundance of tasty Thai tapas. In the effort of providing a well-rounded review, we felt it compulsorily to sample some of their beloved cocktails, including one ‘Bye Bye Samurai’; lashings

of rum, both white and dark, infused with passion fruit, pineapple and lime juice – hello, HEAVEN! Now to sit back and begin our selection process…

hearted, if you like your spice this dish is packed full of a variety of flavours, and makes for a truly stunning dish.

Of course no Koh tryst would be complete without the classics; the ever-popular ‘Crispy Shredded Beef’, the moreish ‘Chicken Satay’ and the quintessential ‘Red Thai Curry’ – beef not chicken (It will completely change the dish, believe me). All that kryptonite in one place, I was rendered powerless to refuse. The ‘Crispy Shredded Beef’ is my favourite kind of comfort food, the crispy, almost buttery batter jacketing tender beef strips, packed with herbs and seasonings and not forgetting a decent dunk in their punchy chilli dip. Just thinking about it makes me melt.

We also paid a little visit to the noodle portion of their menu, specifically we tried the somewhat underestimated, ‘Yellow Egg Noodles’. Don’t be fooled – though it may not be dubbed with a grand title, it certainly warrants one. Perfect in its simplicity, the fresh, classic Thai flavours make this dish something special. All the usual candidates are present: chili, soy, lime - all clinging to long strands of ‘Carbo-licious’ egg noodles. Choose your protein (in our case Chicken) and there you have it, a modest yet delicious lunchtime fare. Just about ready to tap out, I thought we’d peaked, but somehow we mustered the strength to engage just enough muscle power to finish the delicious crispy bacon-wearing mussels, wow! Cheering one another on, we took turns finishing the remaining few items – we couldn’t bear to leave such tasty food.

In true tapas style the dishes just kept coming – time just seems to stop here. In addition to the aforementioned tapas we decided to indulge in a few of their main dishes, including the delectable ‘Weeping Tiger Steak’, imagine melt in the mouth sirloin steak, chargrilled medium/rare, glazed in a tantalising chilli infused sauce. Now to turnup the heat, with a dish that will most definitely tickle your taste buds; the ‘Boozy Duck’. Roasted duck breast (complete with crispy skin), on a bed of fine beans with basil, not forgetting the striking spicy sauce. A sauce so hot, the aroma alone could warm you up. Though it’s not for the faint

The time came to gather our things and return to normality. Koh continues to have a prominent place in my heart. Time and time again the food is consistently excellent, the setting is perfect for all sorts of occasions and the staff are always friendly. Thanks again Kohians! By Charlotte Williams

Tekne

Dorset’s best kept secret You may not know the name, but you will definitely have heard of their clients and may even have experienced their quality craftsmanship. For over forty years, Poole based firm Tekne, have been producing bespoke joinery for some of the very top names in design, architecture, restaurants, boutique hotels and luxury boat manufacture. Regularly combining wood with other materials like metal, marble, glass and acrylics, they often take on the role of Main Contractor, with dedicated hands-on managers overseeing extensive fitout programmes to the highest quality standards.

Chiltern Street Firehouse, Jamie’s Italian, Mark Hix, Wagamama, The Ivy Covent Garden, Brindisa and Selfridges are just some of their clients. Most recently, local restaurants Chez Fred in Westbourne, and the new Rick Stein at Sandbanks, trusted Tekne with their high profile refurbishments.

With several exciting projects underway for 2016, including Brewhouse & Kitchen, Southbourne, a new restaurant/café for Hermitage Hotel Bournemouth, plus The Pig in Devon and Brockenhurst, it looks like Tekne’s secret is finally out.

Chez Fred, Westbourne This well-loved, prize winning fish and chip restaurant and takeaway, has built a large following over 26 years. With queues often out the door, Chez Fred seized the opportunity to expand into the former solicitor’s offices, located next door. As Tekne had completed the original fit-out all those years ago, they were the natural choice for the refurbishment. With the shop closed during works, a short but intense project followed while walls were knocked through and a whole new interior design was implemented.

We didn’t hesitate in coming back to Tekne. We trusted them to get the work completed in the shortest time possible, without compromising on the quality of the finish. I’m delighted with the end result.

Fred Capel, Owner Chez Fred

Rick Stein, Sandbanks Located between Sandbanks beach and Poole harbour, this highly anticipated restaurant is the latest Stein project that Tekne have been involved in (the other being the Winchester restaurant). The existing restaurant/bar had suffered some minor smoke damage but Tekne have completely revamped the venue, transforming the lower ground floor, into a chic coastal destination with panoramic views.

The Tekne team have worked so hard to deliver a great looking restaurant. It’s been a pleasure working with you all on this project. Thanks for everything. Ed Stein

TIME TO SMARTEN UP MEALTIMES? Davina McCall - who can currently be seen hosting Channel 4’s winter sports show The Jump - is a dab hand in the kitchen of course, recently adding another healthy-eating cookbook to her repertoire.

McCall recalls how she thought her kids would “baulk” when she first made a chicken crumble with a cauliflower, quinoa and Parmesan topping but actually they loved it.

Written out of frustration at the confusing advice surrounding carbohydrates, Davina’s Smart Carbs seeks to simplify the issue. “I’ve always been telling everybody about eating a balanced, healthy diet [one that includes carbs], and then I suddenly thought, ‘Have I been telling people the wrong thing?’ Then a nutritionist told me that there are good carbs and bad carbs, and we came up with this idea of smart carbs.

She acknowledges mealtimes can be a battleground, however. “I’ve got three kids and quite often, two of them like something and one of them doesn’t. I don’t make them something different - I just say, ‘Have some of the veg and have a bit more of this if you don’t like that’.

“It makes total sense; there are smart carbs, ones that are good for us - and there are some very simple changes we can make.” These changes include swapping white bread, rice and pasta for brown varieties (“That’s a no-brainer”) and using sweet potato in place of regular spuds.

“I always try and get them to try it,” McCall adds. “The more somebody tries something, the more likely they are to like it in the end.” By Keeley Bolger, Press Association Fancy trying some of McCall’s recipes yourself? Here are two tasty recipes from Davina’s Smart Carbs...

Davina’s Smart Carbs by Davina McCall, published by Orion Books (Photo Credit: PA Photo/Orion Books)

Ingredients

Lamb & Aubergine Casserole (Serves 4)

2 aubergines, cut into 2.5cm cubes Olive oil spray 1tbsp olive oil 1 large onion, finely sliced 600g lean lamb leg or shoulder, trimmed of fat and diced 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped 1/2tsp ground allspice 1/2tsp ground cumin 1/2tsp ground coriander 1/2tsp cayenne or hot chilli powder 1/4tsp ground cinnamon 400g can of chopped tomatoes 200ml chicken stock or water 1tbsp pomegranate molasses 1tbsp lemon juice Small bunch of parsley, leaves only, to serve Salt and black pepper

Method Preheat the oven to 220C/200C Fan/Gas 7. Put the aubergines in a bowl and spritz them with olive oil spray, then turn them over and repeat. Spread the aubergines on a baking tray and roast them in the oven for about 20 minutes, until they’re starting to brown. Heat the olive oil in a large flameproof casserole dish. Add the sliced onion and cook it slowly over a gentle heat for about 10 minutes, until it’s soft and translucent, then turn up the heat and add the lamb. Cook until the lamb is well browned, stirring regularly, then reduce the heat and add the garlic and spices. Season with salt and pepper. Add the tomatoes and the stock or water. Bring to the boil, then turn down the heat, put a lid on the casserole dish and simmer for an hour until the lamb is becoming tender. Add the aubergines and the pomegranate molasses, cover again and cook for another 30 minutes.

Remove the lid from the casserole. If the sauce is very liquid, simmer until it has reduced, then add the lemon juice. Serve sprinkled with parsley.


FOOD & DRINK

Bubble & Squeak (Serves 4)

PA Photo/Handout

Ingredients

Method

300g carrots, cut into chunks 300g swede, cut into chunks 10g butter 150g spring greens, cabbage or Brussels sprouts, shredded 1tbsp olive oil 1 small onion, finely chopped Olive oil spray Poached or fried eggs, to serve (optional) Salt and black pepper

Bring a saucepan of water to the boil. Add the carrots and swede and cook them for about 10 minutes or until tender. Drain thoroughly, then tip them back into the saucepan and leave them over a low heat for a few minutes, just to help steam off any excess liquid. Swede in particular can get quite waterlogged, so this is important. Mash the carrots and swede with the butter until fairly smooth. Tip the mash into a bowl and leave it to cool, then chill it in the fridge for a while to firm it up. Wash the greens thoroughly, put them in a saucepan with a little water and cover the pan. Place the pan over the heat and cook for a few minutes until the greens have wilted down, then drain them thoroughly and leave them to cool.

Heat the oil in a large non-stick frying pan and gently fry the chopped onion over a medium heat until it’s softened and caramelising around the edges. Add this to the vegetables, then tip everything back into the frying pan and spread the mixture out into a large round. Cook the bubble and squeak over a medium heat for several minutes until it’s nice and brown underneath and cooked through. Meanwhile, preheat your grill to its highest setting. Spritz the top of the bubble and squeak with olive oil spray, then pop it under the grill for three to four minutes until it’s browning around the edges and in patches on top. Cut it into wedges and serve as part of a brunch with poached or fried eggs, if you like.

When you’re ready to cook the bubble and squeak, mix the root veg mash and the greens together and season with salt and pepper. 151

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

PURE RADIANCE… Choosing an in-salon facial treatment can be a minefield. With most high street salons offering us a wealth of treatments promising to plump, hydrate and rejuvenate how do you choose the one that is right for you and your skin? Summer is fast approaching - and with it, the need for beautiful, glowing skin. I pick five treatments that will help you achieve the ultimate beauty goal of pure radiance. Read on for more details and to get booking that next Facial... A facial can be considered a vital step towards healthy skin for both women and men. Our skin is the largest organ in the body which performs functions such as protecting from invasion by foreign substances as well as a mechanism for excretion of toxins from the body. Facials typically include a cleansing procedure, a massage, the application of a facemask and moisturising. Having a regular facial assists the circulatory system and stimulates the skin. Some argue that it may also help slow down premature aging by increasing awareness of skin care. Keeping your skin hydrated will help keep the skin moist and

stop dehydration. Most of all facials are extremely relaxing and great (in combination with massage) for de-stressing. The massage, which is an important part of a facial, helps blood circulation, which in turn aids lymphatic drainage (the removal of toxins and waste from the body). A massage also relaxes the facial muscles and is very important to delay the onset of wrinkles. The application of a facemask in the end helps tone and clarifies the skin.

The Collagen Plump and Lift – This Facial suits all skin types wanting an extra boost! It’s a targeted Facial to lift and Hydrate. With the use of our Perfector Lifting techniques to visibly tighten and slack areas, Oxygen Therapy and a Collagen Masque this facial gives ultimate results. Pros – Target driven results guaranteed! £48.00 The Classic Dermalogica Facial – You can’t beat a classic deep cleansing facial that includes steaming the skin and extraction of blocked pores. Pro’s – Functional and relaxing Cons – There really aren’t any! From £40.00

Below are my 5 favourite Facial treatments all available at Chic.

Non surgical Facelift – Micro currents work to lift and firm facial muscles, re-educating the muscles. Pros – Relaxing and impressive results, great for sagging jowls Cons – up to 12 treatments are needed for a permanent result. From £40.00

The Oxygen Facial – Instantly plump and hydrate fine lines with this pure oxygen infusion facial! Pros - Instant quick results! Cons – A series of treatments is needed to maintain results. From £40.00

Following her acclaimed performance in the 2014 production of Calamity Jane, Jodie Prenger stars in Andrew Lloyd Webber and Don Black’s classic musical, Tell Me On a Sunday. The story charts the misadventures of Emma, a young English girl in New York in the heady days of the 1980s. Brimming with optimism, she seeks success and love, but as she weaves her way through the maze of the city and her own anxieties, she begins to wonder whether she’s been looking for love in all the wrong places. Originally conceived for television Tell Me On a Sunday has become an iconic musical, with a wonderful original score featuring the hits Unexpected Song, the chart-topping Take That Look Off Your Face and, of course, the title track. Emma has been previously performed by legendary musical theatre stars including Marti Webb and Sarah Brightman. Andrew Lloyd Webber’s numerous awards include seven Tonys, three Grammys, seven Oliviers, a Golden Globe, an Oscar, two Emmys and the Richard Rodgers Award for Excellence in Musical Theatre. Don Black is an Oscar-winning lyricist (Born Free) and has penned numerous James Bond theme tunes and chart hits including Michael Jackson’s Ben and Lulu’s To Sir With Love.
