Home sellers face a significant challenge when it comes to finding their next home in the current property market where demand for properties massively outweigh supply, according to local estate agency Fox & Sons in Poole. Through its unique ‘Help to Find’ service Fox & Sons can help buyers achieve the best price for their existing property whilst also supporting them in finding the home of their dreams for their onward purchase: “Properties are in short supply and home owners who want to take their next step up the ladder are finding it easy to sell but not necessarily easy to purchase their next home,” says William Shouler at Fox & Sons in Poole. “Our ‘Help to Find’ service allows us to not only market our customer’s property to gain the best price, but also market the sellers themselves as potential buyers to owners of

the type of property they wish to move to - a 360 degree service from us.” “Many of our customers are time poor and so we make it our mission to actively search for their next property on their behalf,” continues William. “We’re the experts in the local market and can provide guidance on the home buying process for both existing homeowners and first time buyers. Through our comprehensive range of professional home moving services – including residential sales, mortgage services, conveyancing - we can provide a seamless service, manage the whole property chain, and achieve the best results for our customers.” If you have a property to sell and would like to arrange a free market appraisal on your home, contact the local Fox & Sons branch on 01202 672736 or email: poole@ sequencehome.co.uk.

SARAH’S SOUTH AFRICAN ADVENTURE Talbot Heath school were delighted to welcome back former pupil Sarah Johnson to talk about her recent experiences in South Africa working as part of the support team for Eddie Izzard during his epic 27 marathons in 27 days. Miss Johnson, who left Talbot Heath in 2001, is the tour manager for Eddie Izzard, and spoke about her wide-ranging and exciting work organising the recent marathons, that reflected the 27 years Nelson Mandela spent in prison, and ultimately raised over £2.2 million for Sport Relief. Her varied responsibilities included the health and safety of Eddie and the team, organising accommodation and managing the media attention. She spoke of many highlights throughout the trip which included a potentially dangerous route through a safari park with an armed ranger; an emotional visit to Robben Island where Mandela was imprisoned for 18 of the 27 years; and a surprise phone call from Tim Peake from the ISS one evening during dinner!

nail polish. Sarah also presented a signed section of the finishing line ribbon, used throughout the marathons, as a thank you to the school for their fundraising and support. Deputy Head, Matthew Pitcher, is about to run in the London Marathon on the 24th of this month (for the charity Scope), he said Sarah’s talk was fascinating, adding, “Eddie is an inspiration to anyone who runs - be it the local parkrun or ultra-marathons. As someone who has run a marathon I know the pain he must have felt after day one - the mind boggles how he ran 27 of them!” Talbot Heath school gave sincere thanks go to Sarah for taking time out of her very busy schedule to visit her former school and inspire the girls once again. And good luck goes to Mr Pitcher for his run on Sunday.

Following the talk was a Q and A session with the pupils from the Junior and Senior school, whose questions ranged from the South African climate and diet, to Eddie’s running times and choice of

TOP TIPS FOR SELLING IN THE SPRING Spring is traditionally a good time to sell your property, and with more properties coming to the market, here are a few simple improvements that can be made to increase the chances of a successful move. Whether it’s with price or presentation, Keith Fensom, head of residential at Savills Canford Cliffs, gives his dos and don’ts for selling at this time of year. Preparing the house for sale is essential. There is no need to redecorate throughout, a new buyer would do that, but you need to show the house has been well maintained. Identify the purpose of all the rooms and show off what they could be. If you have a spare bedroom that’s currently used for storage, sort through it and ensure your buyers see it presented as a bedroom. This will add to perceived space and usability for your home. Keep your home warm. Homeowners with working fireplaces and ranges can really show them off to good effect at this time of year, we can be sure that a warm and welcoming home that’s as loved outside as it is in, will help with a quicker sale. Think about the outside as well as inside. Ensure grass is cut and the garden well

kept; pathways and driveways should be cleared and freshly gravelled; gutters and drains need to be clean and running freely. This creates a favourable first and last impression. Use garden furniture wisely. Although you may be thinking about putting away tables, chairs and benches, if you are selling your home it’s worth leaving them outside so that buyers can see the space in action. If you do this, though, make sure you keep them scrubbed and clean. When it comes to viewings, don’t go over the top with fresh coffee and baking bread, but do make sure the house is decluttered. Remember it is still a home to be lived in. Choose your agent wisely, don’t just go for the highest valuation and the lowest fee – it may not necessarily be the best or right one. It is important that you get on with your agent and that they can demonstrate good market knowledge and a proven track record in selling similar houses. For more information, contact Keith and the team at Savills Canford Cliffs on 01202 708888.

Based in Poole, Custom Made Furniture is one of the region’s leading names in bedroom and fitted furniture. So what is it that makes the company so successful? The dynamic duo put it down to their unique views on customer service, ”Nothing is too much trouble, and we really mean that.

furniture to work for you. From functional fitted wardrobes to de clutter your room to luxurious walk in wardrobes and dressing areas, each design is carefully considered and every last detail will be captured from finishes down to the personal height of your fully adjustable shelves. Their designs are then put into 3D and presented to you, so that you can really get a feel for how your room will look once the installation is complete. Then from the workshop in Poole, each and every piece of furniture is hand crafted using the finest materials available. Customers are welcome to come and visit the manufacturing process and see how much individual care and attention goes into every piece of furniture by their highly skilled staff. The installation process is then carried out by the team of professional fitters often with Neil or Steve on site to sign off the finished work and ensure that the installation is exactly how it was designed and fitted to the customer’s exact requirements.

Join Adams Lettings in celebrating the opening of their new office in Christchurch by attending their OPEN LETTINGS SURGERY Adams Lettings Agents are proud and excited to announce the opening of their new office on the High Street in Christchurch. We will be open for business on Friday 13th May 2016 and will be celebrating by having an Open Office ‘Lettings Surgery’ on Friday 13th as well as Saturday 14th May, to introduce ourselves to the local community, landlords and tenants. Please come in and see us and enjoy a cup of tea or coffee with some cake or biscuits, whilst meeting members of the team, and discussing whatever is on your mind in relation to lettings and/or property management. The Open Lettings Surgery will be a ‘no-obligation’ event, where you can receive impartial advice on your investment, your current tenancy or the latest regulations. We’ll even be happy if you just want to come in to have a good whinge about George Osborne! “The team at Adams are outstanding in every way. From their excellent communication, their proactive nature and their common sense approach to problem solving as they inevitably arise. No matter whom in the team you deal with, the outcome is always positive.” (Tom J Landlord) With over 50 years lettings experience within the team, we know our business inside out. Our team draws upon this experience in each

area of the process to advise on the best course of action to deliver the best results. As an independent business with property management and finance teams ‘in-house’, our clients benefit primarily from a strong relationship with long serving members of staff, who they can always reach, and secondly, from a synergy where the whole team works together to make both the letting and managing of your property as easy and trouble free as possible. With all senior members of the team owning rental property themselves, we have firsthand experience of being landlords so we understand where you’re coming from and with this in mind, we go the extra mile to ensure your investment is treated as we would treat our own. “In my opinion the reason you are better is that the client tends to deal with the same person all the time - a person who knows your property very well.” (Julian C Landlord) At Adams Letting Agents we pride ourselves on being 100% focused on Lettings and Property Management, providing a first class service, offering our clients total commitment and dedication. We know you need an agent you can trust, someone who has your best

interests at heart and who can offer you a stress-free lettings experience. With all the regulation and legislation that has been showered upon the Residential Lettings sector of late, we know that it can be difficult for landlords to keep up – it is difficult for us as Agents as well! As registered ARLA members, we ensure that we are up to date in every aspect of the industry and will ensure that you, your property and tenancy are compliant and that your investment is kept safe. We are always happy to offer ‘no-obligation’ advice and information with regards to Residential Lettings and Property Management, as well as impartial and realistic market valuations on your property, whether you’re looking to purchase, have a property under offer or you already have a portfolio.

In line with the opening of the new Christchurch Office we have just launched our new website which can be found at www.adamslets.com Please go on and have a look, browse our properties, meet the team or register for one of our Landlord Information Packs.

Q&A Session with Greg Adams We quizzed Greg on the new office and a few topical issues relating to Lettings that might crop up at the Lettings Surgery.... Q: Why did you choose Christchurch? G: Christchurch is a delightful town, making it an amazing place to live and we can’t wait to be a part of that. In addition, the office will be opening in the premises of my mother’s wool shop, Honora, which has been serving the local (and not so local) community for over 60 years. Although Honora’s clientele are sad about mum’s retirement, it is a great opportunity for me to continue my family’s relationship with the unique community in Christchurch. Q: How do you see George Osborne’s 2015 ‘war on Buy to Let’ affecting the market? G: Landlords have been and will continue to be long term investors, whether for themselves or their families. There will always be people needing to rent homes and if the supply drops it will only increase demand for quality rental accommodation. The numerous regulations imposed on Residential Lettings in the past few years, focused on making renting a property a safer prospect for Tenants, will continue to

engender an increased confidence to rent. I feel that a protected, energy efficient and regulated industry will add buoyancy to the market. After all, is there still any other better investment out there than bricks and mortar..? Q: How do you feel about the repeated claims in the media for Tenant Fees to be abolished? G: We do charge fees to Tenants and Landlords alike, and pride ourselves on providing an excellent service to both. Residential Lettings has fast become one of the most regulated sectors in the country, and rightly so, as removing ‘rogue Landlords & Agents’ can only be a good thing. It serves to protect Tenants, but a consequence of this is that the workload and costs involved for anyone - Landlord or Agent – in marketing and/or letting property have increased hugely. It would simply be unsustainable for Agents to continue to provide this level of service to their clients without generating an income. If Agents were removed from the process, it would be even harder for the government to regulate the

Greg Adams, BSc Hons M.A.R.L.A Managing Director | greg@adamslets.com

industry as the majority of Landlords wouldn’t have the time to stay abreast of regulation changes, let alone implement them. Q: What makes Adams Lettings tick? G: The main source of our new instructions has always been through existing landlord recommendations. I credit that to the strength of our customer service and the products we provide as well as the relationships we build with our clients. I am lucky enough to have an enthusiastic, dedicated team who are experienced, friendly and professional – all they ask for is a free bar at Christmas!!

Altea Bay, Costa Blanca, Spain

OUR LOVE AFFAIR WITH THE COSTA BLANCA: THE BRITS’ FAVOURITE PLACE TO BUY IN SPAIN Alongside the Costa del Sol, the Costa Blanca has been British property-hunters’ favourite part of Spain during the last decade, but what’s attracting Brits to purchase property in the south-east region of Spain? The Costa Blanca is undoubtedly one of the hottest spots on the Spanish coastline for the British to purchase abroad. In 2014, Alicante attracted the highest proportion of all the overseas buyers in Spain (40%) according to the National Statistics Institute. Spanning 200 kilometres, and with an attractive climate, pristine sandy beaches and picturesque Mediterranean views, alongside superb golf courses, extensive shopping and world-class sports facilities, there’s a great deal awaiting your discovery on the “White Coast”.

Served by three international airports, and with flights to both Alicante and Murcia from Bournemouth Airport at just over 2 hours, part of the broad appeal of the region is its accessibility. The Costa Blanca tends to fall naturally into two halves, with Alicante Airport sitting in the middle.

The North is considered a very scenic region, with fragrant orange groves, vineyards and salt lakes, formed of mountainous terrain

and luscious greenery. Here you can find a charming destination for a peaceful lifestyle and a traditional Spanish experience.

Comparatively, southern Costa Blanca has a much more urban feel, with restaurants, bars and coastal towns punctuating the view along the flat, sandy terrain. With a slightly warmer climate than that of the north, it’s easy to see why this part of the Costa Blanca is a popular destination for many ex-pats. With a more established property market, the south is also less expensive than the north and provides a gentle integration into Spanish life.

The new-build sector in Costa Blanca has sprung back to life within the past two years, and there is an excellent choice of quality properties being offered at competitive price levels. So, whether you’re looking for a Spanish property amongst the hustle and bustle of the city, or a more remote location in the heart of Spanish tradition, there’s no doubt that Costa Blanca can meet your expectations.

ASK THE EXPERT SERVICE CHARGES EXPLAINED! Each leaseholder will have an obligation, in one form or another, to pay service charge under the terms of the lease for their flat. The lease will also detail what this service charge covers. When we receive your service charge cheque or online transfer this goes into the dedicated account for your property. It is a common misconception that service charges are paid into the managing agent’s own pocket. At SPL we have a designated Client account for each of the properties under our management. These accounts hold funds in trust on behalf of the leaseholders in accordance with section 42 of the Landlord and Tenant Act 1987. Each account has its own individual sort code and account number and produces an individual bank statement which is reconciled monthly to our property management software. From this account all of the practical costs of running the property are paid. This includes communal cleaning, window cleaning, gardening and grounds maintenance, communal electricity, and replacement of bulbs and smoke alarm batteries. Then there are also the costs of regular fire and emergency light tests, health and safety reports and fire risk assessments. On occasion there may also be roof repairs, blocked drains, fences blown over and even the odd flood. Our management fee and fees of any other professional advisors are also paid. At the beginning of each service charge financial year SPL look at what has been spent in the previous year and what is expected for the next year. We then issue a budget to leaseholders which details the anticipated expenditure for the year. SPL also periodically arrange condition reports across our portfolio whereby a qualified Building Surveyor will carry out an assessment of the building and advise on what works need to be considered over the coming 5 years. Once we have this report we are then able to build this into our long term plan for the property and plan any reserve fund collections. This helps to give leaseholders an understanding of when significant works will be needed, the estimated cost of those works and allows them to be spread over a number of years. At the end of each financial year we send all of the invoices, bank statements and specialist reports from our software over to a firm of independent accountants who will certify the costs and produce a summary for leaseholders, together with a balance sheet to show the carried forward position of service charge funds. Where the accounts show a deficit this may need to be collected from leaseholders to ensure that the block continues to have sufficient monies to be able to continue services. At the end of the day your managing agent is there to ensure that your property is well maintained and service charges are kept responsibly and expended reasonably. At SPL we are committed to being transparent with our clients and leaseholders. We regularly review contracts to ensure costs are competitive and if evidence of a lower quotation is presented we will endeavour to match this. If you would like to know more about how SPL Property Management’s professional service charge handling and planning could benefit your property please contact one of our Property Managers today.

Tony Peters from Planit Mortgages Limited offers his advice on all your mortgage needs

IS IT REALLY WORTH GETTING INTO PROPERTY THESE DAYS? On many of the property forums on Facebook and the internet in general, there have been many rumblings from landlords and potential landlords bemoaning the measures taken by the chancellor to curb the buy to let market. Reducing tax relief on mortgage interest payments from 40% to 22%, adding an extra 3% stamp duty to purchases of second and subsequent properties and making it difficult to evict tenants are amongst the measures taken to ‘target’ landlords in recent times according to the posters on many of these forums. Quite a few property owners and landlords have threatened to sell all their assets and get out altogether which has prompted some people to wonder whether it is all worth getting involved with in the first place. As usual, the answer is yes, no, maybe, it depends… Obviously, a little clarity is needed here. “Explain yourself man. It’s why I’m reading this” you may be thinking. Okay then. Yes – it is a great way of earning an income and getting capital growth from an asset that you can pass on to your loved ones when you die. It is not a ‘plug and play’ investment though. You have to put the effort in. Even if you are supposed to be retired, you still have to make an effort. Sure, you can leave it all in the hands of an agent but who is to say that the agent isn’t ripping you and the tenant off? No – you can not ‘dabble’ in property any more. If the recent legislation is going to have an effect, it will be to make landlords professional which hopefully in turn will create a fairer system for renters and those who will never be able to afford a place of their own. Treating tenants badly because you can’t be bothered to make the effort or you can’t afford to lose your income will no longer wash. If you think you can make money without any consideration to the people involved, then I suggest you go to your bank or to an investment adviser and put your money into the stock market or a savings account. Maybe – a good enough answer if you already own a couple of rentable properties but don’t want to go any further but really not good enough if you want to make a living or a dependable income through retirement. It depends – it depends on whether property is to become your job rather than a hobby. With the right effort, support and knowledge, you can earn £10,000 per month with as little as 10 hours work per week and when I mean work, I mean making a few calls and keeping on top of paperwork. As a professional, you should be surrounding yourself with other professionals, such as accountants, solicitors and financial advisers. I’d like to add a property mentor to that list. An area that has been ignored and often derided due to the number of cowboys in the arena is starting to become respectable as long as you are in the right hands. So, in conclusion, if you want to be a landlord, do it. Go full on. Quit your job as soon as it’s feasible and invest all your time and energy into it. It might take a year, 5 years or even a decade or more but eventually, you can earn the amount you want, with the effort you want to put in and nobody is the boss but you. If it sounds like too much effort with not enough guarantees, stay in your job, collect your monthly pay cheque, invest in a good pension fund and save what you can. If you would like to discuss your options, you’re welcome to give me a call.

10m @ 1:100 Dorset: a sizeable family home on the plot of an existing house surrounding Nea Meadows and for two large houses on a garden plot in Lymington, both with spectacular views of the Solent.

With a number of positively publicised planning approvals at the end of last year, AJ have had a cracking start to 2016, with ground being broken on a number of prominent developments situated along the south coast.

Directors Mark Adams and Sebastian Janes have been approached several times over the last few years by employees of national house builders and large Contractors, seeking them out in search for a new opportunity and the chance to work with a growing and reputable business, allowing AJ to push the boundaries of modern living, in an attempt to rectify the local housing shortage.

As an investment option, AJ’s investors have also experienced up to 45% fully secured returns and as a result, AJ are regularly discussing bespoke agreements with interested parties, who have been attracted to the evidenced income and investment options that AJ provide. 10m @ 1:100

AJ Developments are strengthening their reputation for paying generously for sites with recognisable potential (potential that often only they can see). Sebastian Janes (Director) says “Before getting yourself tied into an agreement with another developer, give us a call for a free appraisal of your house or plot, with no strings attached. More often than not, our expert team of planning consultants and architects do a better job than most; resulting in a larger realisation of profit for you, the home or land owner.” This has been evidenced several times over the last few months.

ASK THE EXPERT...

About Protecting Your Furniture Steve Webber, Director of Maidmans Moving & Storage Steve has many years experience in the moving and storage industry. He offers the following advice about protecting your furniture during a house move. Steve says: “Packing is a crucial part of any move. Get it wrong and it can be a costly and distressing experience. At Maidmans, our staff are experienced and fully trained and can take care of some or all the packing for your move. Alternatively you may choose to pack everything yourself”. Steve suggests that it is advisable to always use specially designed wrapping and packing materials. He says: “All the materials we use and supply are approved by The British Association of Removers (BAR). If you choose to opt for our packing service, everything will go out with the appropriate protection. Sofas will have quilted covers attached with Velcro strips to ensure no damage occurs during the move. Flat screen TV’s will be wrapped in appropriately sized protective bags. Whatever you may need to move, our removals team are experienced in packing unusual, bulky, fragile and valuable items. You can rest assured that should you need to move a

So its June 24th, the UK has voted to stay in the EU and there is jubilation in France and Germany. Then over the weekend the Sunday papers report that Portugal, Ireland, Greece, and Spain (aka PIGS) are all due collectively to make huge Interest and Capital repayments on June the 28th and the 29th. The rumours in the press are that Greece will not be making any payment and the other three are looking doubtful. The Euro is under huge selling pressure in the run up to these dates, the DAX is collapsing and the CAC is in free-fall. London is faring well under the pressure of the PIGS and David Cameron makes a speech to the House: “although we are in the EU we are protected because we have the pound! …and that our Economy is the strongest in the EU block!”. Angela Merkal goes on Bloomberg to announce that at 3pm (European Central Time). She will be making a speech. Both CAC and DAX will shut early so that she can make her speech. She opens with doom and gloom about the PIGS; that the time has come for there to be a re-capitalisation and re-distribution of wealth, to all the PIGS nations, from the leading nations of the EU and to finally get the EU as one. After at the Q and A, she is asked by ‘Laura Kuenssberg’ of the BBC, “where does the UK fit into this?” She answers with us, with the rich nations of the EU of course. The pound crashes on the spot by 30% and the FTSE by 25%. The next question is how much is going to be needed of the 1.9 Trillion Euros that the PIGS owe, to stop this recurring problem? To which she answers 1 Trillion Euros in redistribution of Capital between member states. This means, in simplistic terms, we the UK will need to take our National debt to over £2 Trillion Pounds and adding a further huge amount of Interest to the UK economy.

The next week Standard & Poor (the rating agency) reduce the UK, Germany and France’s credit rating to ‘BBB’, the same as Spain and Greece. The Bond and Guilt Markets go into frenzy and all EU governments are now paying huge coupons in interest on their borrowing. An emergency budget is called in the UK and all government departments have been slashed by 10%. Instantly all capital programmes are scrapped and Income Tax is raised on all by 15%. The Stock Market is still in decline and the Government is in turmoil. Next there is civil unrest at the cuts and the Government calls an Election Labour win with a landslide after preaching that Capitalism has failed – not a pretty thought!

Help to Buy is a government scheme created to help first time buyers and existing home owners to purchase a home, and get on the property ladder, with as little as a 5% deposit. How does it work? The government lends you up to 20% of the purchase price of your new build home, so you will need a 5% cash deposit and a 75% mortgage. There are no loan fees charged on the 20% loan for the first five years. Example of Help to Buy on a home with a purchase price of £200,000 Can I use the Help to Buy scheme? Equity loans are available to first time buyers as well as homeowners. The home you want to buy must be a new build property with a price tag of up to £600,000. You will need a 5% cash deposit to use the scheme. You must not own any other property at the time you buy your new home. Where are Help to Buy homes available? Help to Buy homes are available from house builders registered to offer Help to Buy homes in England. Registered builders will make it clear in their advertising if Help to Buy homes are available on their development sites. Are there any restrictions on the mortgage provider? Your first charge mortgage must be from a qualifying lending institution. These include lenders who are authorised under the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000, and who have permission to enter into regulated mortgage contracts. This is likely to include most banks and building societies. The Financial Conduct Authority keeps a register of authorised persons on its website. The register can be found at www.fca.org.uk/register Your solicitor/conveyancer will check that the lender is compliant before a sale can proceed.

MERIDIAN ESTATE AGENTS A huge well done to Laila Safaee of Meridian Professional Estate Agents, Poole office. She was officially accredited by ARLA and successfully passed all four exams this month April 2016. Laila joined the Meridian Lettings Team back in 2010 as negotiator

All three postcodes have seen a price increase over the last 12 months too. If you would like advice on your current value and a realistic value (not one just to get your instruction), then please contact us. Other news… Purbeck District Council in Dorset is reminding landlords and tenants of the recent legislation affecting the private rented sector that came into force in October 2015 regarding smoke alarms on every floor and a carbon monoxide detector, which must all be working at the commencement of each new tenancy.

and has fully focussed on her career within Lettings with 100% determination & dedication and has successfully grown the lettings department to date. In July 2015 the lettings team expanded and Meridian welcomed new recruit Ellie Taylor as lettings negotiator and Laila was promoted to Lettings Manager taking the new role of management under her wing. For all of your lettings enquiries whether you are looking to find a new home, or to take advantage of our FREE no obligation

The legislation includes the power to Councils to impose heavy fines for non-compliance - £2000 for a first offence, rising to £5000 if a landlord commits more than two offences. Court applications have increased again for ‘accelerated possessions. In April 2014 this rose from £175 to £280 and another increase will take effect from April 2016 to £355. Is this now time to look at Rent Guarantee Insurance? Sometimes the reason tenants are evicted is due to personal circumstances changing and not always as commonly thought to be ‘benefits’ related. At Move On we charge less than £200 per annum for an insurance that not only pays your rent with no excess, it also pays half rent after the tenant vacates until a new tenant is found and pays all court fees, bailiffs etc that is needed to evict the tenant. I appreciate landlords like to keep costs down, however, it is a sad fact, when you do have to evict a tenant, it will wipe out years of any profit and very often leave you in a loss. I t seems to me a little bit of a ‘no-brainer’ for that total peace of mind, especially when the annual fee is less that the court fee.

10 THINGS TO THINK ABOUT BEFORE YOU BUY A SHOWER Victoria Lombard (Owner of Ripples Bournemouth) offers her advice on the 10 things to think about before you buy a shower... #1 YOUR LIFESTYLE Before you jump straight in think about how you shower and who will be using the shower, these are questions that I ask my clients, so it’s important that you ask yourself them too.

#2 YOUR OPTIONS You might like the look of an overhead shower (hotelinspired designs are big news after-all) but think about your options, maybe you might also want to incorporate a hand-held shower too, perfect for those

Is your conservatory too hot in summer and too cold in winter?

Transform your conservatory into a room you can use much more often A Comfort Room insulated ceiling is the affordable solution to the too hot, too cold that many conservatories have, but it is not the only benefit. It can reduce the sound of the rain and sun glare, as well as helping save on your energy bills.

Only 5% VAT Reduces sun glare Reduces rain noise Energy saving Minimal disruption 2 to 5 days to fit

For an interior and exterior transformation, the SupaLite tiled conservatory replacement roof gives you the plaster finish interior of a Comfort Room, and the lightweight roof tiles give your conservatory the external look of an extension. Both systems can be installed in 2 to 5 days, so both options offer minimal disruption, unlike larger scale building works. Call us to find out more or visit our website comfortroomsltd. com to find out how we can transform your conservatory.

JEEP ANNIVERSARY MODELS

150

A new limited edition range of Jeep vehicles has just been launched in the UK to celebrate the brand’s 75th Anniversary. Just 8,000 of the limited edition cars will be built for the entire Europe, Middle East and Africa region. Celebratory editions of Jeep’s popular Renegade and iconic Cherokee will be the first models to arrive in the UK, with the Grand Cherokee and Wrangler following later in the year. All 75th Anniversary models are distinguished by a new livery, a 75th Anniversary badge, low gloss bronze wheels, bronze and orange exterior inserts and exclusive interiors with seats sporting the 75th Anniversary logo in relief (with the exception of Renegade). The Renegade 75th Anniversary sports a unique Jungle Green livery and comes equipped with either a 1.4-litre turbo MultiAir 170 hp engine with a nine-speed automatic transmission or a 2.0-litre MultiJet 140 hp engine with a choice of either a six-speed manual or a ninespeed automatic transmission and class exclusive Active Drive and Active Drive Low 4x4 systems. The Cherokee 75th Anniversary comes in Recon Green and is powered by the new MultiJet 2.2-litre 200 hp turbo diesel engine with either Jeep Active Drive I 4x4 system or Active Drive with twospeed power transmission units and low mode. At launch the new Jeep Renegade 75th Anniversary edition will cost from £26,795, while the new Cherokee 75th Anniversary edition will cost from £38,945. Prices for the Wrangler and Grand Cherokee versions will be announced later in the year.

ROAD TEST: LEXUS RX450H PREMIER A friend always describes imposing and head-turning cars as ‘large and in charge’ and it is an apt description of the RX450h, a luxury SUV from Lexus, writes NICK FLETCHER. While there is an entry level front wheel drive petrol model, most buyers move up range for the all wheel drive petrolelectric hybrid, which packs a 259 hp 4.5 litre V6 engine mated to an electric motor and to electric CVT transmission. The result is a smooth, quiet effortless drive so good it makes you feel you can not only reach your next destination but carry on half-way around the world. Ride comfort is armchair quality, the suspension set-up very compliant and the handling is assured, with plenty of grip and stability. Yet despite this refinement, the 450h is sporty too – the 0-60 mph time is just 7.7 seconds, impressive for a large and weighty car. Top speed is 124 mph and the fuel economy is good by class standards at 51.4 mpg combined. The first thing you notice about the RX450h is just how much other people notice it! The car has awesome visual presence, appearing larger than a Range Rover even though this may be an optical illusion due to the unusual styling lines of the RX. Its barndoor-size grill, high waist-line and hefty 20inch alloys give it a dominating muscular appearance and it attracts a lot of admiration.

Inside the cabin offer acres of space for five adults, and a 450 litre boot which can be almost doubled by dropping the rear seats and is accessable via a large powered tailgate. My test model was the range-topping Premier version, priced at £57,995 and laden with a kit list long enough to fill a paperback book. Highlights include pre-collision system, adapative cruise control, lane department alert, traffic sign recognition, rear cross-traffic alert and ten airbags. You also get leather upholstery, illuminated door handles with puddle lights, illuminated scuff plates, Lexus Premium satnav, reversing camera, a Levinson 15-speaker sound system, colour head-up display and … well, I’ve barely started! In a week of daily use in town, rural backroads and motorways, I was always impressed with the relaxed driving feel. For short spells – for instance on start up and at lowspeed city cruising - the RX450h automatically drives on electric power alone. In my real-world driving, with no economy attempt, I still got around 35 mpg. This Lexus has a lot to offer in a hard-fought sector, including high levels of kit, badge exclusivity and the brand’s outstanding reliablity record. And, of course that large-andin-charge persona!

ROAD TEST: NISSAN X-TRAIL TEKNA While the Qashqai gets a big share of the limelight in the Nissan ranks, its X-Trail stablemate isn’t far behind, neatly combining style and practicality in the crossover format so popular these days, writes NICK FLETCHER. The latest X-Trail is a leap away from the original version, offering more space, more equipment and most importantly in an image-conscious sector, much more visual charisma. Less boxy, more curvey and with a more car-like driving feel, the X-Trail also has class-leading occupant space and a bigger load space than most rivals. X-Trail prices start at £21,850 and while entry versions have adequate kit, most buyers in this sector will aim for mid-range Acenta trim which is a nice value for money compromise. My test model was an upper range Tekna, priced at £28,445 and powered by a 1.6 litre 160 hp turbo petrol engine, with a 6-speed manual gearbox and a raft of extra creature comforts and styling enhancements. Standard kit includes blind spot warning and moving object detection, powered and heated front seats, park assist, powered tailgate, leather upholstery, 19 inch alloys, 7-inch touchscreen with front rear and side cameras, auto lights and wipers, panoramic sunroof, and dual-zone climate control. Top speed is 120 mph, the 0-60 mph time 9.7 seconds and the fuel figure is 44.1 mpg combined.

This new model was designed to appeal to a wider across section of buyers and it certainly does that. It looks more elegant and has more visual presence than most rivals, more interior space, and is packed with technology. With petrol and diesel engines, a 7-seat version, and optional all-wheel drive, buyers have a lot of scope to tailor the X-Trail to their particular life style. The car drives well, with a balanced chassis, assured handling and decent ride quality, thanks in part to Active Trace Control which constantly monitors speed and steering input, adjusting your line through a corner if the car senses you’re going to run wide. Active Ride Control is useful too, using subtle engine braking to help iron out bumpy surfaces. With a classy looking cabin, impressive passenger and load space and a lot of kit to play with, the X-Trail Tekna is a beguiling proposition.

Silver Wheels launch an innovative new process, and we got the inside scoop! With over 25 years experience in the industry, Silver Wheels’ directors recognised a gap in the Bournemouth area, to not only offer high specification finishes on alloy wheels but to provide exemplary service. “At Silver Wheels, we aim to provide our customers with a wide range of finishes and a level of service to suit them, not us. We have a full range of samples in our showroom, for you to examine and to make your selection from.

Customers are able to bring a single alloy wheel for us to process or their entire car. We are happy to remove your wheels and tyres, paint your alloys, then replace tyres, balance your wheels and mount them back on to your car – a complete service. Silver Wheels provide the best finish in the market place today.

The Diamond Cut Wheels manufactured with a diamond cut finish are becoming more and more common, with most of the main manufacturers either offering them as upgrades or as a standard option. A diamond cut wheel can be identified by the polished finish on the front face of the spoke and another colour on the side face of the spoke. This second colour can be a silver, which can then make the polished face hard to spot. Refurbishment of a diamond cut wheel is carried out in the normal way, up to the point that the colour has been applied to the wheel. Then it is loaded into a specialist machine, that lathes the front faces of the spokes using diamond tipped tools – hence the term

‘diamond cutting’. Silver wheels are the first company in Dorset to be able to offer this service all completed in house. With a short turn-around time of just 2 days. We can repair damage to diamond cut wheels and return them back to factory specification using the same processes and paint suppliers as the main automotive manufacturers. It was, and has always been our mission, to concentrate on high quality results and deliver these results at a speed to suit the customer.

REVIEWED

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

OMELETTOS

…Let the egg-puns begin! Tucked away in Bournemouth’s cosmopolitan triangle, is the flippin’ (first pun hatched) tasty ‘Omelettos’. A word of advice: don’t underestimate this cracking little place. We met with owner (also known as the omelette king) ‘Tarik’, one morning to find out what makes his food so egg-citing – ok I’ll stop, I promise. Tarik was bursting with enthusiasm, especially for a dreary Monday morning. His passion for the business really shone through and it was evident that this guy really knows his eggs. He took the time to tell us a little about how he got the business started: in the search for the perfect omelette, he tried and tested heaps of recipes, combinations and even various different pieces of equipment, before he finally found what he deemed to be the elite of all egg based snacking. These are not your ordinary omelettes, not a dull recipe in sight. The menu is fully customisable, putting you in control of your food and nothing is too much trouble. In-fact customisation is welcomed. If a particular new combination becomes popular, Tarik names the omelette after the person that introduced it. I opted for a little taste of the Mediterranean: Feta, caramelized onion, and chorizo, but my flavour

154

journey didn’t end there. Free of charge, you can upgrade your omelette into a kind of ‘breakfast burrito’, by having it wrapped in a soft flour tortilla. Believe me, I had the exact same thought that you are likely having right now – ‘why?’ But in this instance, may I suggest letting go of your breakfast inhibitions and simply saying - yes! The wonderful gluttonous quality of the tortilla perfectly balanced the natural sloppiness of the omelette, making every mouthful utterly pleasurable and to think, all of this foodie excitement all before midday on a Monday. Have omelettes always been the cure to the start of the working week slog, or had these particular omelettes just really hit the spot? Every element of my omelette was superb and tasted so fresh. Just the notion of ‘caramelized’ onions suggested an air of finer dining, compared to your ordinary breakfast. It must seem odd to obsess about such a tiny element, but think about your average onion. At another breakfast spot, it would have been merely tossed in with the accompanying ingredients to congeal, but this was special. Clearly a lot of love and care had been taken over preparing it. In addition to their savoury fare they also offer a little something for those amongst us with a sweeter tooth. A variety of different crepes to

choose from: lashings of Nutella, fresh berries, chopped fruit, honey – the works! In addition to all of the above they also have a line of scrumptious milkshakes and smoothies. Hello, heaven! Tarik is a self confessed foodie who has taken to time to try and accommodate all dietary requirements in his breakfast emporium. If you’re dieting (it’s no ‘yolking’ matter) and you can only enjoy egg whites, fear not he’s got you covered, or maybe you are bulking up, you can indulge in omelettes with up to ten eggs in it, for an extreme protein boost. No matter vegetarian, pescetarian, or part-time gluten intolerant – there’s an omelette for that. If you’re looking for a life changing (no I’m not eggs-aggerating) breakfast treat, or just a protein packed snack, then head to Omelettos for simple, but delicious food.

HEALTH & BEAUTY

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

HAVE A CLEAR START We are excited to announce the launch of a brand new Facial Treatment at Chic especially targeted for Teens and Young Adults. This new treatment focuses on the problems that teen skins can experience, helping to clear up and eliminate problem areas such as blocked pores and the dreaded spot! “As well as improving the appearance of the skin we hope to be able to educate youngsters on the correct ways to look after their skin, setting the foundations for great skin throughout their adult years” - Sophie, Chic Owner Clear Start™ is the first serious skin care system aimed at helping teens cut through the hype to get clear skin. Developed by the skin health experts at Dermalogica, it uses powerful ingredients and soothing botanicals to deliver real results.

Clear Start™ takes a four-level approach to clearing breakouts through combination therapy, combining the best of nature’s botanicals and the science of breakout-clearing skin care. Through an easyto-follow regimen that incorporate extra clearing products, Clear Start™ helps teens reveal their clearest level of skin and establish good skin care habits that will last a lifetime.

Key Products

How is Works

1. Breakout Clearing Foaming Wash - This breakout fighting foaming wash clears away dead skin cells, dirt and excess oils that clog pores and cause breakouts. Use on your face, back, neck... wherever skin requires deep cleaning and pore clearing for fewer breakouts. RRP £13.10

Breakouts are the number one skin concern among teens. While their skin care product choices are ample, products for teens often contain harsh and inexpensive ingredients, artificial fragrances and colours – all things that can irritate and strip oil from skin, causing even more problems!

2. Pore Control Scrub - Deep clean pores and scrub away dull skin for a clearer you! Purifying bentonite clay absorbs excess oil and debris from skin, and helps to control shine. Refreshing botanicals reinvigorate skin. Skin-smoothing

Tough on breakouts, gentle on skin. That’s Clear Start™.

CHIC Beauty Salon & Academy of Beauty

Clear Start™ is different. It’s specifically formulated to unclog pores, minimize breakout-causing bacteria and control oil – all key factors for controlling teen breakouts, which are usually triggered by puberty. And it does so without aggravating already troubled skin – something other teen products don’t do.

ENJOY YOU TiME FOR LESS TREATMENTS INCLUDE

scrub helps skin feel cleaner and fresher than before. RRP £13.10 3. Breakout Clearing Daytime Treatment - This daily, lightweight moisturizer and powerful pimple-preventing treatment in one helps wipe out breakouts before they emerge! RRP £16.15 4. Breakout Clearing all over Toner - This unique mist-all-over purifying toner controls excess oils and helps eliminate breakouts on the face and body. Refreshing extracts help cool and revive skin.

HEALTH & FITNESS

QUIT TALKING START DOING, NO EXCUSE!

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

Well there is a lot of great things going on in the Fitter than Fit world at the moment. We now have our own App, which can be found in the App Store for iPhone or Android. The App holds a lot of very useful information including location, membership options, prices, our latest deals, a little about us and our contact details. There are also pictures, videos, links to social media and an option to buy a loyalty card for private one on one sessions with either myself or Michael, which are very popular. We will soon be adding tatsy recipes and workouts on a weekly basis, for you to follow. The App also has a shop, which soon we will be able to reveal some very exciting news about our brand ‘Wassmuffin’ and it very cleverly gives out quick alerts as a reminder to any of the classes you may want to join. You don’t have to be a member to receive any of these benefits, just go to the App Store and get the ‘Fitter Than Fit App’, absolutely free. Talking of a reminder to come to classes, I have recently discovered that my laid back attitude towards my clients isn’t necessarily what they actually want. I have often left people

alone if I haven’t seen them for a week or so, thinking that everyone is entitled to a little break. I don’t send out group texts or emails, there is no weekly weigh in. I was quite happy with this, knowing that clients always came back eventually as they enjoy the workouts and believe it or not, we actually have fun too (most days)!

3. The discipline of getting up early and exercising before work is really empowering and results in you having more energy throughout the day.

But it came to light, after 1 client had been off for nearly 2 weeks, that some people need an extra little push. I said how good it was to see her and I hadn’t wanted to disturb her time off. She told me the first week she had been unable to come due to exams, but the second week she’d just been lazy. She went on to tell me that actually she would have liked a gentle reminder/push from me to get involved again. So from now on a gentle push here and there it is.

5. Significant body shape changes.

Here is a gentle reminder of a few of the reasons Boot camp is so very good for you...

Give it a try, you’ve nothing to loose. Except maybe a few extra pounds! Contact us for any details, let your fitness journey begin with us!

1. A significant increase of fitness over a short space of time due to the type of exercise used. 2. A huge increases of confidence and feelings of well-being.

4. Early morning exercise has been proven to assist in weight loss and can help burn more calories over the course of the day.

6. Comradery, fun and friendship. You will have fun and motivate each other as well as make new friends. 7. Body fat loss and muscle toning is what it is all about. With the correct nutrition, boot camp will turn your body into a fat burning machine.
