10 years CELEBRATING

The Just Shutters

JUST SHUTTERS CELEBRATE A DECADE OF SUCCESS

team would like you to

From a Southbourne spare room to 13 franchises and 125 towns and cities across the UK!

10th Anniversary.

Just Shutters celebrate 10 years at the top of their field! Grown from humble beginnings, husband and wife team Chris and Helen Rocker began the Southbourne based company from their spare room on Carbery Avenue in 2006. The idea was simple; to provide the best possible shutters, expert advice and installation, together with outstanding customer service. It is these three qualities that have been at the heart of the company as it has flourished and grown, now with 13 franchises and covering 125 towns and cities throughout the UK. Chris Rocker, Director says; “it is not often in life you can create something with a ten year plan and are able to look back over that decade with such a sense of pride knowing you have achieved those goals and more. We are where we are through hard work, the right people and a passion for great service. We may have grown a great deal but our foundations have remained and I am pleased to say it is this which has earned our reputation and the love of our customers.” Helen Rocker, Director, adds; “we are delighted to be celebrating this company milestone with our staff and franchisees, I am very proud of our dedicated team and what we have all achieved over the past decade.” A real local success story, Just Shutters weathered the financial crisis of 2008 and double dip recession through to 2013, in fact enjoying year-on-year growth throughout this time. The company has also seen huge changes in the digital world with both it’s systems and marketing being poles apart from where it began.

Marketing Manager, Charlotte Fantelli says; “It is a huge pleasure and privilege to be part of Just Shutters, I remember my first meeting with Chris over ten years ago discussing logos and colours, we have since then seen huge changes in the digital world and our marketing, but the one thing I can say with total honesty, is working with a company that delivers the promises we market is a breath of fresh air and the reason for our long term success.” The future is looking bright too, with seven franchisees taken on in just one year, the business sees no signs of slowing, plans to continue the national growth are in full swing, Business Manager Simon Osterloh tells us what we can expect from Just Shutters over the next decade; “Just Shutters core ingredients are just right, we have a model that is perfect to replicate and an exceptional package for our franchisees, this enables us to attract great people and help new areas get off the ground extremely quickly! I am certain the future will see a Just Shutters in every region of the UK.” Just Shutters would like to invite you to join them in celebrating their tenth anniversary at their showroom party on 17th September, musical entertainment and refreshments will be on offer throughout the day, as well as experts to discuss any of your shutter needs.

BOURNEMOUTH HOME IMPROVEMENT COMPANY BUILDING FOR THE FUTURE

NEW JUNIOR HEAD AT TALBOT HEATH

One of Dorset’s leading home improvement companies Swain & Rands has appointed a new Technical Sales Manager to drive future sales in the window, door and conservatory market.

A graduate of the University of Leeds, where she studied English Literature and Music, Mrs WeberSpokes is currently Deputy Head Academic at Clayesmore Preparatory School, Blandford Forum. She began her career as an English teacher and later, as Director of Studies at Kenton College Preparatory School in Kenya. A passionate educationalist, Mrs Weber-Spokes believes that, as well as ensuring outstanding academic provision, teachers need to build confidence and resilience in young people so that they are able to meet life’s challenges with relish.

Ian Miller joins Bournemouth-based Swain & Rands with over twenty years’ experience in the industry having previously worked for one of the UK’s biggest conservatory installers. A skilled customer relations manager with valuable technical knowledge of the industry, Ian will play an instrumental role in the company’s development. As well as assisting the company’s management team to drive and maintain their sales record and reputation in the window, doors and conservatories’ market, Ian will also be looking to build sales in other areas such as orangeries and new livin rooms. Fairly new to the market, livin rooms combine light and sky views of a conservatory with the walls and perimeter ceiling of an extension to create extra living space with thermal efficiency savings far superior to those of a standard conservatory. Ian’s appointment is key for the business according to Director Darren Rands,

“We’re witnessing a period of phenomenal growth at the moment so the appointment of Ian to manage and drive sales is crucial to us being able to maintain our near perfect customer service record.” As members of Checkatrade, Swain & Rands have achieved an outstanding average score of 9.92 based on nearly four hundred customer reviews over the last four years. Established in 2011 by industry specialists Mark Swain and Darren Rands, the Bournemouth-based company is experiencing an increase in customer demand and is consequently undergoing a period of expansion. As well as recruiting more staff to the team, they have just opened a new showroom in Northbourne, Bournemouth to showcase their range of installations.

WOULD YOU CONSIDER LETTING YOUR PROPERTY TO A TENANT WITH A PET? With good reason many landlords adopt a no pet policy but are they missing out? Claire Martin, Lettings Manager of Goadsby Lettings in Poole & Broadstone says demand for pet friendly properties is high; Since the start of 2016 over 25% of applicants registering with Goadsby to rent in the area have suggested that they either have or intend to get a pet i.e. a cat or dog during their next let. Claire indicated that many of these applicants come to us saying, “We are finding it hard to find a property which accepts pets… I am happy to pay a higher rental/deposit if that will help me secure a property... We are willing to get the property professionally cleaned once we move out”.

With limited supply, tenants with pets often stay in the same accommodation much longer, offering landlords a reduced risk of costly void periods. Claire says, “We have many successful lets with tenants who have pets. At Goadsby we offer added protection for landlords by having a thorough written and photographic inventory carried out as well as specialising our agreements with extra clauses relating to the pet and the cleaning of the property on vacation and by taking up a specific pet reference.” If you are considering renting out your property please contact the team in Poole on 01202 686555 or Broadstone on 01202 692145 or email claire.martin@goadsby.com

A keen musician, Mrs WeberSpokes sings with the Bournemouth Symphony Chorus and enjoys outdoor pursuits, most especially snowboarding and water sports, ‘when the sea is warm enough!’ She has two sons, Bill aged 15 and Robert aged 12, both of whom are at school in the local area. Speaking of her appointment to the Headship of the Junior School at Talbot Heath, Mrs Weber-Spokes said, “From the moment I walked through the doors of the school, I was struck by the warmth and vibrancy of the girls and their environment. It is clearly a lovely school and I am really excited by the prospect of immersing myself in such a super community.” Appointments to meet Mrs WeberSpokes can be arranged by emailing jsoffice@talbotheath.org or calling 01202 763360 during term time.

A LITERARY VOYAGE AWAITS!

THE TEAM AT HOUSE MAGAZINE OUR ASKING OUR READERS TO HELP JOSH

House Magazine is excited to announce the launch of our new Marine and lifestyle section starting from our next issue on the 22nd August!

Josh at just 10 years old has had an incredibly hard time from word go, but the last six month have been the toughest yet for him and his family. Christmas 2015 Josh collapsed in a foreign country following a bleed on the brain that had stemmed from a pre-existing tumor.

This monthly section will give seafarers the chance to indulge their passion for all things boat, yacht and watersport related. Not to mention the luxury lifestyle content that goes hand in hand. So if you are looking for a new addition to your waterside property, wanting to upgrade your current vessel or simply have a love for all things marine related, then set sail with us. Join us from issue 147, where you can see the latest watercraft available in your area, with expert tips, reviews and information on how to keep your vessel in tiptop condition. Our readership is ever-growing and you can now find the magazine in main marine areas such as Portland, Weymouth, Swanage, Sandbanks, Poole, Bournemouth, Christchurch and Lymington. If you have a company (or know of someone) that might want to explore this new addition for advertising, then please do get in touch. Call us on 01202 200930, or send your enquiry to Ross@house-mag.co.uk.

The tumor had become extremely aggressive. He went through radiotherapy and chemotherapy, and never once did he complain.

They are now turning to the local community and asking for your help to get Josh the experimental treatment he will now need, whilst also giving Josh the opportunity to do some of the things he has always wanted to do… You can help Josh by donating on his Go Fund Me page, just head to: https:// www.gofundme.com/2ffgphw and give whatever you can!

He kept the smile on his face despite being put to sleep every day for 6 weeks, for treatment. He fought to regain the ability to walk and use the left side of his body and never gave up or got upset. Unfortunately, despite the strength he has shown, his family have just received the devastating news that the cancer is progressing fast and their options are now limited.

HAVING AN OARSOME TIME FOR CHARITY Diverse Abilities, Dorset’s disability charity, recently held its famous Dragon Boat Race, inspired by the colourful and competitive Chinese sporting spectacle. The event, sponsored by Spectrum Housing Group, took place in Poole Park and raised over £12,000. The nine teams went head to head in boats decorated with dragon figureheads that fit between nine and 17 people. Enthusiasm was essential in this physical challenge and there was a great atmosphere in the park, with many family and friends cheering on the teams from the shore. The first place prize was decided by combining the amount fund-raised and the racing time, making the IMI Precision Engineering team the overall winner, followed by Keytek in second place and Onetec in third. The IMI Precision Engineering team also won the award for the highest overall team fundraisers, with Andy Mainstone of IMI taking the title of the highest individual fundraiser. However, the Onetec team were awarded with the overall ‘racing time’ win while

the award for the best team spirit went to the Dorset Divas team. Sharon Wells, events fundraiser at Diverse Abilities, said: “A big thank you to everyone who took part and raised money to help support children and adults in Dorset and a huge thank you once again to Spectrum Property Care who kindly supported and sponsored our event, we are most grateful.” The money raised from this event will help enable Diverse Abilities to continuing providing vital support to children and adults with disabilities across the county. To take part in a future event in aid of Diverse Abilities, please visit www. diverseabilities.org.uk/events or call 01202 718266.

Ask a designer Helen Winter of Coral Interiors INTERIOR DESIGN TIPS AND TRICKS: TIP NUMBER 3 – ‘LIGHT IT RIGHT’ With lighting, MORE is definitely more – and by that I mean a range of different types of lighting or layers. There are so many types of lighting; ceiling pendants, chandeliers, downlights, spotlights, wall lights, lamps and a huge range of customisable LED options. LED lighting can now be coloured, dimmable and even incorporated into your Audio Visual system.

SETTING YOU ON THE PATH TO GARDENING SUCCESS

Lighting technology and design is ever evolving and if you haven’t given it much thought in the last few years, take a look at these recent developments: Decorative or vintage LED bulbs: These are the new generation of energy saving bulb and are way more attractive and versatile than the previous CFL (Compact Fluorescent Light) that came in sticks and spirals and would often take a few seconds to warm up. With a return to exposed bulbs, these just aren’t going to cut it. Led bulbs can look just like the old halogen ones, or if you love the vintage or industrial look - invest in dimmable Edison bulbs, especially stunning for pendant lights, wall lanterns and for the industrial look. It’s no longer efficiency or style – you can have both! Oversized feature lighting: With increasing open-plan living and the popularity of kitchen islands, a big feature light (or 3) makes a powerful statement and creates definition in a multi use space. If you don’t have the ceiling height in your kitchen or living room, why not hang a cluster pendant or cage style lantern over your stairwell? Coloured lighting: Another way to create a different mood and atmosphere in your home is to experiment with coloured Led lighting. Sound a bit 80’s disco? It doesn’t have to be – you can play it safe with dramatic effect, just by using different shades of white. LED lights stay cool in use which means they can be easily incorporated into shelving, cupboards, wardrobes, under beds or baths (always hire a professional electrician). For a contemporary kitchen or bathroom with downlights, cool white is the best choice as it’s functional, crisp and perfect for task lighting. For bedrooms or living spaces and where you have additional lighting such as table lamps or wall lights, use warm white bulbs to create a cosy, restful atmosphere. Ask for advice in your local lighting shop and remember that even though these bulbs cost a bit more, they are often guaranteed and replaced for free if they fail within 3 years or so. And if you’re a sucker for home tech then look for a system that incorporates coloured mood lighting, so you can program completely different ambience for different times of day and night.

With a reputation for providing quality products at competitive prices look no further for all your outdoor and landscaping requirements. Visit our website or come and browse our shop and huge display area.

HOME IMPROVEMENTS

KITCHEN HOUSE Since their founding in 1987, Kitchen House has provided new kitchens ranging from fixed budget kitchens, right through to larger and more complex, designer kitchens. Being a local business (without the large scale marketing budgets of a national chain) they have always relied on a good reputation within the area to sustain them. Unlike the big chains, they take the time to make sure that you’re completely happy with what they have installed. A high portion of their work has come from prior recommendation.

A bespoke kitchen Kitchen House fit full kitchens, including all necessary units and kitchen appliances like ovens and other white goods. Still, there’s more to designing a stunning kitchen than just having all the right components. They offer tailored design advice, based on each individual space. Say your kitchen is only three metres across, they can design

bespoke made worktops and units to utilise your space to it’s full potential and with almost 30 years in business, they have seen and done it all. You can put your full faith in their hands when it comes to designing a kitchen that you will love.

The price of a new kitchen Before you even contact them you’ll probably have an idea of how much you want to spend on a new kitchen. It’s a big investment, especially in the modern financial world. There are some companies who will give you a lower quality kitchen, and others that insist you should spend more. The team at Kitchen House will work their hardest to work with your budget, creating something that works both financially and atheistically for you. They’ll work with you to make sure that the kitchen you get is personal, efficient and suits your home without the need to increase budget.

Using the best kitchen appliances and fittings Kitchens are often in constant use, so it’s always best to invest in the most robust and efficient products. Their extensive range of worktops and ovens are sourced from the leading manufacturers, who use only the most effective materials. Their appliance suppliers include leading brands like Smeg, Fisher & Paykel, Siemens, Falcon and Mercury. With access to these high quality manufacturers your new kitchen can be fitted with stylish and reliable range cookers, ovens, fridges and freezers. If you have any questions about the service they provide, please feel free to get in touch. If you’d rather take a look at some of the features that they offer in person, then head down to their showroom. Their friendly team will be more than happy to talk it over with you.

Planning permission? We get it.

Since 2003, we’ve specialised in helping developers and private individuals negotiate their way through the complex planning process. Our successful track record speaks for itself and includes the following recent projects:

New mixed use development Boscombe, Bournemouth Permission granted at Public Inquiry appeal Now under construction Ken Parke Planning worked with their clients’ architect to put forward a mixed use scheme comprising 8 retail units and 51 flats. The Council planners refused the scheme for being too big and harmful to the character of the area. However, a Planning Inspector agreed with Ken Parke that the development was a rare opportunity to redevelop an entire street block which was well considered and designed so that it would not cause harm.

7 Houses on a backland Brownfield site Winton, Bournemouth Planning Permission Granted September 2015 Ken Parke Planning Consultants turned around a previous dismissed appeal to obtain consent on this controversial site in Winton. A sensitive scheme was devised with the architects which would preserve neighbour amenity and the merits of the scheme were successfully argued at the Planning Committee against local objection.

Replacement cottage in historic location Mudeford, Dorset Appeal granted September 2015 A long running battle to replace a locally listed cottage in a sensitive conservation area was finally resolved at appeal. Ken Parke Planning successfully argued that it was not worthy of listed status. An Inspector agreed that the proposed replacement building is efficiently designed and provides appropriate accommodation for this prime location overlooking Christchurch Harbour.

MR SIMMONS FROM POOLE ASKS…

“My neighbour had an extension built, he didn’t use an Architect. Why would I need one?” Architect and Director at Western Design Architects, Jonathan Turvey answers this frequently asked question. This is perhaps one of the most important questions a Client should ask themselves when embarking on a project. Admittedly there is no requirement to use an Architect and depending on the nature of the project and experience of the Client, occasions may arise where an Architect is not required. There are many competent people in the construction industry who can provide drawings, but the question is, what added value does an Architect provide? Construction projects can be daunting and are a significant investment and Clients should appoint the best team to work collaboratively with them to ensure the success of the build. Many Clients have little or no previous experience of what is involved in the process and Architects can give confidence as qualified professionals and guide people through the complex procedures. Most Architects will provide a wide range of services and can take projects from agreeing the initial brief and identifying aspirations, developing imaginative design proposals and options, planning and building regulations applications through to contract administration on site. Architects wear many ‘hats’ and do not only produce drawings but will identify the dreams and requirements of Clients, generate ideas and creatively capture this in the project through the design process. As a design develops, Architects will maximise the functionality of the project by considering structural implications, review sustainable energy sources, interior design and identify appropriate professional consultants to work as part of the team. Architects can also provide details of appropriate builders and produce tender packages in order to obtain competitive costings. All this combines to improve the efficiency of a project and seek to remove potential for confusion and delays when a project is on site and keep expenditure to an acceptable level. Requirements of being a registered Architect means practices must carry PI Insurance and issue detailed appointment documents to Clients that set out an agreed scope of works, roles and responsibilities for each project. When looking to appoint an Architect, seek out friends, colleagues or neighbours who have recently carried out work with an Architect and ask their advice on how the project progressed and whether they would recommend the Architect they used. The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) publish useful advice and offer a free online referrals service at www.architecture.com

TALKING BUSINESS

Fresh Developments A fresh take on property development With so many local property development companies (not to mention those further afield), it can be a daunting task finding the one that fits. Such a strange notion, ‘the one that fits’, but chances are your land/ property is your biggest asset. So why wouldn’t you be particular as to whom you decide to approach? Fresh Developments pride themselves on being a little different. Their simple, straightforward collaborative approach, working with landowners has resulted in a 10 year proven track record of maximizing land values for sellers. You’ve probably been told countless times that every company can offer you the most money, after all, the initial allure for most of us comes down to the price, but Fresh Developments truly have a significant edge on many competitors. As one of the few property developers with their own construction company, Fresh control the whole development process from the first discussions with landowners, throughout the specification and construction phase, to the last sale. Combined with a flair for design and meticulous attention to detail,

they can be sure of the most successful project outcome. Without the risk and uncertainty of employing external construction companies, Fresh can be confident in offering landowners the best possible price for their land. A lot of people are deterred by the idea of developing their land because of the risk, cost and in some

cases, not wanting to be involved with “developer types”. Fresh are a team of keen, professional, family motivated people, who develop great houses that people want to live in. Simple. Their approach has often succeeded where others have failed, take their recent scheme in Poole: ‘Leverett Gardens’. A development of 14 much

needed three-bedroom family homes in the heart of Oakdale. Previous developers had failed in efforts to unlock the considerable potential of the land, both in making the deal work for all parties and in achieving planning permission. The construction of the final phase of the development will be complete in a matter of weeks. The scheme involved negotiations between Fresh and seven separate landowners, all of whom received fantastic returns for their land. The idea of property development can be daunting, let the team at Fresh, backed up by their professional consultant advisors, guide you through the process. With Fresh paying for all the costs associated with the planning permission (including your legal costs), what do you have to lose? So if you are contemplating selling your home or land, consider an alternative route for yielding a more appetizing profit.

AJ DEVELOPMENTS Lets talk ‘Nest-eggs’ and Wise Investments

Did you know that even with the recent rise in stamp duty, ‘Property’ still remains one of the top 5 investments? And property development, well now we’re talking…

able to pass this saving onto the homeowner. Janes continues, “These scenarios are enabling our Land Team to pay considerably more than other developers for a site and still complete projects to a superb finish.”

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.

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. With build costs an average of 10-20% cheaper than most other developers AJ Developments are

In a recent case study, AJ purchased a site in Highcliffe: an existing house with a sizeable garden, for which an approval decision has just been reached, allowing for 3 new homes to be developed. The uplift on the home and plot, which the homeowner originally contacted AJ about, has seen exponential growth and the return on their land has been far greater than they could have ever imagined. Other similarly successful examples have been recently concluded with planning approvals, Including ten houses on a large plot in North

Ask yourself: Have you ever imagined jetting of to Europe to spend your later adulthood indulging in fine food and soaking up the warm sun? Or perhaps you want to provide a comfortable nest-egg for yourself and your family? You might already be living in the key to your future… If you have any opportunities you wish to discuss, irrespective of their size, history or location get in touch with them for a free consultation. T. 07879 666337 E. info@ajdevelopments.net W. www.ajdevelopments.net

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

HOME IMPROVEMENTS

HOW I CAME TO BE IN THE SAME ROOM AS ELLA FITZGERALD Rosie White, Marketing Director Aspire Audio

On my left the honey tones of Ella Fitzgerald fill my ears, the saxophone player accompanying her is directly in front of me and the sweep of a drum brush and clear cymbal tell me the drummer is to my right...then the rich tones of Louis Armstrong...a faint cough from behind me and I open my eyes to find I have not, as much as it may have felt like it, been transported to 1956 and the dimly lit Mocambo Club but I am instead sat in Meridian Audio’s R&D room, experiencing ‘fully immersive’ sound quality for myself. Rather, it is the technology behind the two rather beautiful looking Digital Sound Processing 7200 Speakers, sitting on the stage in front of me, that have taken my listening experience to a whole new level. As masters and pioneers of ‘High Res Audio’, Meridian’s range of flagship ‘DSP Speakers’ epitomise everything that is so very jaw dropping about their products. From Meridian Audio’s British heritage, to the outstanding build quality, engineering and testing of their products, akin only to a performance car. As Meridian Audio themselves articulate, you cannot fully appreciate Meridian until you experience their products for yourselves. So what is it that makes ‘DSP Speakers’ so very special? Well they generate subtleties of musical detail that allows for ‘lifelike authentic sound’.

By avoiding additional high frequency sounds, the listener can sense the performers and the space they are in, bringing a sense of immersion like nothing experienced before. The highly engineered cabinet ensures an inert casing, hand-fabricated from ‘Meridium’ and ‘...a high-pressure laminate of birch plywood and aluminium damped with mineral-filled epoxy resin.’, resulting in the eradication of ‘unwanted sounds’ that may interfere with your listening experience. Furthermore each loudspeaker drive unit is powered by its own amplifier and each amplifier is individually controlled by a DSP crossover ensuring top and synergistic system performance. The bass system has six powerful drive units arranged in opposing pairs to help cancel vibration, providing the listener with clear and full-bodied bass. Technical talk aside they are rather beautiful too, the option to adorn them in one of 270 select finishes/colours or bespoke cabinetry makes them, in my opinion almost sculptural in their form and finish. You could spend as many hours looking at them as you do listening to the wonderful sound they produce. Learn more about ‘High www.aspireaudio.co.uk

NEW DEVELOPMENT 36 LUXURY APPARTMENTS Glossbrook are pleased to announce Crosstrees, a development of four blocks each containing nine spacious open-plan apartments on Lilliput Road, Canford Cliffs, for our client Shape Real Estate. The first block is nearing completion and the show apartment is now open for viewing through Tailor Made, Sandbanks and Savills, Wimborne. The interiors draw their inspiration from the nautical heritage of Dorset and are evocative of super-yachts. As a result, space is used innovatively and efficiently. From shelved alcoves and sliding doors, to integrated appliances and storage, everything has its place. The architecture rises out of the landscape to echo the elements around the buildings. Natural materials such as clay, stone and timber are integrated into the vision

and have been heavily influenced by the surrounding countryside and coastline. As a leading property construction company, our team have been instrumental in building a significant number of highly distinguished projects during our 31 years in business. We are renowned for excellence in client relationships, delivering projects on time and on budget with a proven track record of attention to detail. If you are interested in building your own home or investment from the ground up and want a company who will bring your vision to life contact us on 01202 537232.

TALKING BUSINESS

HOUSE MAGAZINE TALKS BUINESS WITH…

VANTAGE POINT Keep Letting, Less Stressing We popped by to meet the team down at ‘Vantage Point’ in Bournemouth town centre, to find out what they’re doing to enable more of us to let out our homes via ‘Airbnb’. We caught up with owner ‘Jon Duignan’ to get some more information… Landlords, holiday homeowners; lend us your ears! What if you could earn yourself a massive increase in your rental income, plus a huge tax release on your earnings? The answer lies within this interview. ‘Airbnb’: the latest in travel accommodation. It consists of an online portal that enables homeowners to rent out their property/ flats/cottages, to holidaymakers. This service is totally changing the travel

industry, with more and more people opting to stay in homes let out through this service, rather than choosing more conventional accommodation such as hotels. The site itself makes it easy-peasy to do so. For starters, each property is required to display their availability on the easy to navigate website. This is a huge development, which saves holidaymakers so much time swapping emails back and forth. All of the information you need is there in black and white. Finally technology that matches our ‘want now’, fast paced, way of living. Most people’s concerns with the Airbnb service is often with regards to potential damage to their property, not to mention the strain from cleaning it all up afterwards. Enter, ‘Vantage Point’.

Though owning and renting out a second home can produce some rather fruitful return, there is a lot of work that goes into making that happen. Photographing the property, managing responses, you have to wonder if it’s worth the stress. VP’s unique service offers those renting their property via Airbnb; management, maintenance, concierge and a cleaning company – all in one. They literally take care of everything. After an initial phone call to their offices, they can arrange to meet you at the property in question, where they can give a full analysis of the area and the property, to assess the correct rental figures, so that they can ensure that the client gets the best return on their investment.

138

Property owners can expect to earn up to potentially 60% more through working with Vantage Point, compared to a conventional letting agent.

In terms of management, Vantage Point will spend plenty of time getting to know which dates the owner of the property is willing to rent it out for, along with any particular rental specifications. Then they will get your property in the faces of the right people through the Airbnb website. They do their very best to show off your property, allocating you their photographer to capture the best parts to of your property. In addition to this, they can offer the help of their talented copywriters to provide a stellar write up to really sell it to potential renters.


TALKING BUSINESS

Bare in mind, this service isn’t just for second homeowners. Say for instance you travel or are away a lot for work: your home could be earning you money whilst you’re away on business. Maybe you’re only ever away, when you’re on your holidays – by renting it out you’re essentially going away for free! Or perhaps you, or a relative are retired and are seeking an additional income: if you’re living in a retirement apartment and you enjoy sunning yourself abroad a fair amount, you could be renting out your place to other retirees, who are eligible to reside there. Jon took me through some of the common concerns when using the Airbnb service, he commented “We fully appreciate the natural attachment people have to their homes, and understand why some might be reluctant to trying something like this. But with our maintenance and cleaning service, we’ll have you’re pad looking as it was when you left (if not better)”. Even though Airbnb has a ginormous insurance policy, there are some things money just can’t buy. Because of this, Vantage Point offer a unique property protection service, where they will create a thorough inventory

of your belongings, which they will take away to be kept safe during the renters stay.

Did You Say Savings? You might have caught us mentioning a serious tax return before, well: There is a government backed tax relief scheme in place, which enables people to potentially earn up to £7500 tax free from rental income, through their property (how’s that for insider information). With the new legislation the government have introduced, with regards to stamp duty increases on second homes, it is going to become increasingly harder for people who want to build a portfolio of properties, so this is a way to help people to increase their rental income from their existing properties.

What we offer our clients is a level of service beyond any other company out there.

Whilst having permanent lodgers can provide a certain sense of security, it is also a somewhat limited source of income. Think of this: if the average rent for a two bedroom apartment is somewhere around £800 (variable depending on where in Bournemouth), that’s all you stand to make in a month. Whereas hosting your property out to multiple renters/holidaymakers, you stand to make a bigger total profit, because your nightly rate would be higher. Let’s say you charge £50 a night (a reasonable cost split between two) and let’s say you have enough occupants to cover an entire month (say 28 days) that’s a grand total of £1,400 you could be making!

permanent let, they can also offer this service. Rest assured, they won’t literally put just any property on Airbnb. They don’t wish to mislead clients into thinking they can achieve higher rental if, for example, the property is too far away for the major tourist areas. With that being said, area such as the New Forest (and the surrounding towns) are equally as suitable for more active holidays, for those who like to explore the great outdoors.

It’s important to remember that not all property is suitable to rent as holiday accommodation. The team will assess your properties’ full potential and should it be more suitable as a

INTERVIEW

SMART HOME RENTALS IF LETTINGS GIVE YOU LEMONS, LET US MAKE LEMONADE!

We met with the team down at Smart Home Rentals to find out how they are challenging people’s perception of your typical Lettings Agent. We absolutely loved them and we think you will too! Managing Director ‘Sasha Boaltovich’ took the time to give us the inside scoop… How and when did the company start? In my friends back garden (laughs). I was actually working in London at the time, because I’m a qualified fashion designer. I was working in menswear, after graduating from The Arts University in Bournemouth. But after three years of working in that environment I decided I didn’t really like London, so I moved to Bournemouth, because I preferred the lifestyle. I still did some freelance work, until a friend of mine put forward an exciting opportunity. He had some holiday lets that he needed help managing, so I took up the offer and found that I actually really enjoyed it. Before this and before fashion, I worked in hospitality. Which actually felt like a really natural progression, going from that to property. I love people. I love making them happy. Eventually the business got so busy that I had to park my fashion career. Then we decided to rent an office space and settle in somewhere of our own. The team grew larger year on year, to the point where we tripled our staff and now we have a brand new office, fit for our re-branded business.

142

I noticed in your office you have the company ethos in a plaque on the wall, what are they again? It’s a bit of a trade secret, well not secret, but I do own the rights to them. The ethos is all about our aim to ‘bring hospitality to Lettings’. Often Letting Agents get a lot of bad press, sometimes for the right reasons and sometimes for unfair ones. It only takes one bad thing, or rather one tiny mistake and you loose the trust of your clients. We hope we can disburse that stigma and create a good name for our agents.

You have another brand linked with smr: ‘Bournemouth Beaches’. Could you tell us a little more about that? So this is actually where it all started. This is the Holiday Lets business that I initially came onboard to help my friend with. We created Smart Home Rentals so that we could appeal to a wider audience – a brand that would enable us to expand and that more people could relate to. We still retain ‘Bournemouth Beaches’ for the time being, because we have existing clients who are familiar with the name, but we hope to bring everything under one umbrella in the future. By detaching ourselves from ‘Bournemouth Beaches’ we can totally rebrand our holiday lettings agency and build the sub-brand ‘Smart Holiday Rentals’. What do you see for Smart Home Rentals in the future? We hope to go nationwide, that’s our minimum ambition. We want to grow our residential lettings business, by captivating people with our unique approach. We also have plans to build a Property Sales business. All of the domain names and pieces of the puzzle are coming together; it’s just a case of building everything up. We have given ourselves a timeframe of around 2 years, to open up 3 new branches. We hope to find our way into the up and coming areas around Dorset, like Southbourne, Swanage or Weymouth. It’s bold, but you have to take risks, if you don’t you won’t reap the rewards. How do you bring that ‘hospitality’ element into a lettings business? We like to keep things informal. We don’t wear suits and ties, because it can be intimidating. We want our customers to feel comfortable. When you think of ‘home’, do you really associate that with stuffy uniforms? No, you think of comfort, and familiarity, which is what we’re trying to convey.


INTERVIEW

We don’t necessarily follow strict rules, unless you’re talking about legislation – here we have to be very strict. In terms of holiday renters, we don’t want them to feel like customers, we want them to feel like guests. That’s why so often they just call us up for a catch up, because they feel they can do that with us. What drives you to succeed? My love for hospitality and being generally hospitable. I love helping people, and it can be very rewarding. When somebody thanks you for what you’ve done and you see him or her with big smiles on their faces, it makes me feel great! I have an amazing team around me. I was almost entirely absent from the business for three years whilst I took up a second degree, and it continued to run smoothly, which I think shows that I have created a strong franchise opportunity. A certain way of doing things that can be replicated nationwide. Having come from a very creative background, do you get the chance to utilise that creativity in this business? Yes actually. You don’t have to be painting or drawing to be creative. We utilise creativity in a lot of what we do: take the property write ups for example: If they are particularly captivating, it entices more people in. Our branding, our office, even the colours we choose, requires a lot of carefully considered creative thinking. A day in the life of Sasha… I get up very early, probably earlier than I would like to. On average I probably get up around, 5am? I don’t use an alarm clock, I never have done (they generally stress me out). I’m not the biggest fan of strict rules. I do things at my own pace, but my pace matches whatever needs to be done. I love my coffee machine; it makes a triple espresso that helps me pick up the pace.

I get ready, I check my emails and I plan my day. I try not to stress myself out, because I need to be clearheaded and available to my team. I’m not a lover of to-do lists, or diaries but my inbox is always empty. When something needs to be done, I get it done then and there. I arrive at the office; have a briefing with the team. Then I might call some customers at random, just to see how they’re getting on. It’s hard for me to describe a typical day because each day is different. I might go to the gym, I might eat lunch and play angry birds, who knows! I really enjoyed Sasha’s unique approach to lettings and moreover his general enthusiasm and ambition for life. Despite the casual dress wear, these guys take their work very seriously. They treat each and every customer (and journalist) like family and they

Properties are just the commodity but the product we’re selling is care. will do their due diligence to ensure that you have a fruitful return from your rental property, or an enjoyable experience as a tenant, or as Sasha might say, a guest. t. 01202 296400 e. admin@bournemouthbeaches.com w. www.bournemouthbeaches.com a. 6 Poole Hill, Bournemouth, BH2 5PS

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

MARKET RENT V LOYAL TENANT!

Landlords – are you getting the right rental amount for your property? I was recently talking to someone at a networking meeting and he was asking me how much I thought a property he owned was worth on the rental market. It just so happed we had recently rented the identical property next door and after clarifying a couple of questions with him I told him confidently we would be able to achieve £1,500 pcm. He then proceeded to tell me he was already letting it out and getting £920 pcm. It turned out the tenant had been living in the property for 8 years and had fallen on hard times five years previously and as a gesture of goodwill, he had reduced the rent by £75 pcm to help the tenant out, however, despite small increases each year he was not yet back up to the original rent. His next statement to me was, “but he looks after the property and he pays his rent each month on time…”. How many times have you said this yourself? I get it, I have been there myself and said those very words, but at what point do you turn into a charity? Whatever reason you have for now renting out your property – be it was an investment property, or your situation changed, or you saw an opportunity to keep your property whilst buying another, you did it because it would bring in an income (small or large) for now, it would be your pension later and the property would also go up in value. Presently this landlord was receiving £11,040 per annum in rent. At the correct rental value of £1,500 pcm he should have been receiving £18,000, a difference of £6,960 per annum, if you add in the previous 3 years which should have achieved at least £1,250 pcm... he was down nearly £19,000! That is a lot of money in everybody’s book! The market has been on a steady rental growth here in Poole and Bournemouth and a definite upturn in the last 2 years. If you have a tenant who has been in your property for over five years, you need a revaluation. Ring me for a free and confidential chat. (01202 711161) With the new tax changes coming in next year, having an up to date rental valuation could be the difference in you deciding to keep your investment property or selling it. On a final note, the statement “he looks after the property and pays his rent on time”, are part of the terms of the tenancy and should be a

TALKING BUSINESS

HAROYS ARTISTRY IN CARPENTRY Put your trust into their skillful hands Haroys has been trading as a bespoke joinery business since 1976, focusing their attention on superiorly high quality products. Based in the harbour-side town of Poole, the raw craftsmanship element of the business lends itself to its surroundings. After all, centuries ago Poole was the place to commission carpenters and other such tradesmen, to build grand wooden ships. Now in more modern times, the business has created excellent working

relationships with local tradesmen, builders, architects and property developers - building a strong network of local, reliable professionals, that together make up a superb network that can cater to all your home design needs. With nine craftsmen under their wing, their team brings an eclectic mix of skills and styles to the table. Having recently investing heavily in new equipment, such as the CNC machinery, it is now even easier for their team to bring your ideas to life. The business offers solutions for all different kinds of bespoke joinery including: staircases, kitchens, windows, doors and much more. Haroys have also carried out several large restoration jobs for listed buildings and with the new machinery, they are now venturing into new markets such as custom-made solid surface worktops. Renowned for their friendly service, the team at Haroys takes pride in offering top-notch customer service. No job is too big or too small; they are here to provide you with a carpentry solution no matter the job. You needn’t take our, or their word for it, simply read the glowing reviews: “Great company, I am delighted with my new kitchen. I will definitely recommend”, Mendoza Moores.

Above: A happy client, Graeme Souness thanking John Latimer for the wonderful work done on making and fitting his new front door.

Every piece has to earn the ‘Haroys seal of approval’. A coveted merit that is bestowed only on perfect products. Everything produced is subject to stringent quality checks, and only after each item has passed will it earn the Quality Mark. The logo (a black cat) has a significance of it’s own too…

The company was founded by two old friends: ‘Harry and Roy’. Unfortunately for them their original premises was plagued by mice until one day a stray black cat turned up and made her home in the workshop. Claiming her right of residence she quickly resolved the rodent problem, which coincided with a strong upturn in business. ‘Jinksy’, as she was later named, became a beloved friend and mascot to the company and remained with the founders over several moves, throughout the years. Keeping in touch with their heritage, Jinksy’s memory is preserved in the company logo. Haroys put you (the customer) first. With all the right ingredients to hand, including well-trained and experienced local craftsmen and locally sourced raw materials, they are committed to working with you to manufacture products, which meet and exceed your expectations. Their relentless focus on quality and timely delivery is what sets them apart from others. With some very exciting plans ahead for investment in the company, to expand their product range and the business in general – it’s an incredible time for the team.

MOTORING

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

NEW FERRARI SOLD OUT Bad news if you are thinking of buying the new open-top LaFerrari - it has already sold out without ever entering the showrooms! The limited edition model made such a stunning impression at a private client preview, all 499 available models were instantly snapped up. The price has not been disclosed but is thought to be about £1 million. LaFerrai is powered by a 6.3 litre V12 hybrid petrol/electric engine offering a top speed of 227 mph and a 0-60 mph time of just 3 seconds. Ferarri says “significant and extensive modifications” have been made to the chassis with the aim of retaining the same torsional rigidity and beam stiffness as the coupé version. The car’s aerodynamics have also been further honed to guarantee the same drag coefficient when driving in the open configuration.

ROAD TEST: DACIA LOGAN MCV The Dacia Logan MCV is a smart-looking mid-size estate car similar in size to a VW Golf Estate, yet costing less than half the price, writers NICK FLETCHER. Of course there is much more to a car than just its price tag, and the Golf estate and other rivals in the sector may have a stronger market image and more standard kit. But even so, the Logan is astonishing value for money, is powered by well-proven Renault engines, and comes with a three-year warranty. What’s more, it drives nicely and in diesel form, offers 80.7mpg combined. Most people I saw during my test week guessed the Logan would cost between £12,000 and £15,000, and even I had to double-check the price list as the entry-level version is just £7,995. It is certainly the most affordable estate car on the market. Agreed, the entry versions are sparsely kitted but even my top-spec Ambiance Prime version was only a whisker over £10,000 and comes with alloy wheels, radio/CD, USB port, power front windows, remote locking, front and side airbags, gear-shift indicator, Stop & Start function and daytime running lights.

The exterior is attractively styled, the cabin, though rather plain in design, is very functional and much of the switchgear is sourced from parent company Renault. There is plenty of room front and rear, the boot space is impressive at 573 litres, and the rear seats fold for maximum practicality and expand load space to 1,513 litres. There are minor signs of cost-cutting – cheaper plastics, and you have to adjust the door mirrors via a lever rather than electrically. But overall, I thought the cabin was a decent place to be - seating was very comfortable, nice driving position and good all-round visibility. The test version, priced at £10,095, had the 1.5 litre 90 hp diesel unit, smooth and quiet and with an impressive 80.7 mpg combined fuel figure. Top speed is 107 mph, the 0-60mph 11.8 seconds. The 5-speed gearbox was slick and precise, ride comfort very good, overall driving feel was relaxing. The Logan MCV may have a bargain price tag but it never feels like a cheap model. Dacia has identified demand for well-made few-frills cars for very low prices and research shows that the vast majority of Dacia customers are buying a new car for the first time, which underlines this significant gap in the market.

MAZDA RED EDITION

160

A special Mazda2 model has been unveiled, the Red Edition, priced at £14,995. Only 400 models will be available, from September, all with extra equipment and styling enhancements. Offered with a choice of free-of-charge Snowflake White Pearlescent or Black Mica paint, the Red Edition’s youthful design cues include Soul Red accents on the wing mirror covers, rear spoiler and rear underskirt, while the bespoke look can be further heightened with optional £300 Dark Gunmetal 15-inch alloy wheels. Inside, the red theme continues with red cloth seat trim, red knee pad inserts and red door trim inserts, while a red and white décor panel on the dash adds a large sweep of colour across the dash. Based on the 90ps SE-L Nav, the Red Edition features 7-inch touch-screen display and is powered by a 90hp SKYACTIV-G petrol engine with CO2 emissions of just 105g/km.

ALASKAN ON THE WAY

NEW ABARTH SPIDER Pricing and specification for the all-new two-seater Abarth 124 spider have been announced by Fiat Chrysler ahead of car’s UK debut this summer. Starting price is £29,565 for the 1.4 TJet 170hp Manual. Says Abarth:”The new 124 spider marks the return of the ‘spider’ badge, and is the natural heir of the original model launched in 1972. The 2016 car incorporates performance, technology and iconic Italian style as the key factors of a very successful line-up.” Equipped with a powerful four-cylinder 1.4-litre MultiAir Turbo engine, the new spider delivers 170 hp. With a top speed of 143 mph the car can go from 0 to 60mph in 6.8 seconds. The spider is available with a six-speed manual or the automatic Sequenziale Sportivo gearbox. The manual is

characterised by quick and accurate shifting with a shortthrow, direct lever, while the Sequenziale Sportivo gearbox, with steering wheel-mounted paddle shift, exploits all of the engine’s torque. Standard equipment includes climate control system, cruise control, adjustable, electrically-folding door mirrors, and an infotainment system with ergonomic, selector dial on the centre console. The system features a 7-inch colour display, DAB digital tuner, MP3 player, two USB ports, AUX input, and Bluetooth connectivity. There is also a stereo with four speakers while, for superior sound quality, a Bose premium sound system with nine speakers, including dual headrest speakers on both seats and a subwoofer, is available as an option. A satellite navigation system is also optional.

Renault has revealed more details of its new one-tonne pick-up, the Alaskan, which will be available in both two and four wheel drive. The company says:” The Alaskan takes a completely fresh approach to the pick-up segment, including a stunning look that incorporates an imposing front-end. Both robust and comfortable, Alaskan delivers exceptional driving comfort enhanced with a cutting edge five-link rear suspension and a tough, fully boxed frame. “Alaskan is a powerful, ingeniously designed vehicle that combines outstanding off-road ability and bestin-class fuel economy with the Renault 2.3-litre dCi engine under the bonnet. In addition to meeting the needs of professional customers, it is the perfect companion for leisure use and everyday motoring.” The Alaskan will first launch in South America, with debut dates for European markets still be be announced.

NEW MERCEDES GT R Mercedes says it has never packed so much motorsport technology into a production vehicle than into the new AMG GT R. The front-mid-engine concept with transaxle, the twinturbo V-8 engine rated at 585 hp, the extensively modified suspension, the new aerodynamics and the intelligent lightweight construction lay the foundations for “an especially dynamic driving experience.” Top speed is 197 mph and the 0-60 mph time just 3.6 seconds. Wider front and rear wings allow an increased track width for optimum grip and even higher cornering speeds. The new front fascia with active elements, the large rear aerofoil and the new rear fascia with double diffuser enhance aerodynamic efficiency and help ensure optimum grip. The lightweight forged wheels shod with cup tyres as standard are likewise designed for maximum driving dynamics. The same applies to other new features such as the active rear-wheel steering, the nine-way adjustable traction control system and the adjustable coil-over suspension with additional electronic control. The car will go on sale in Europe next March and prices will be announced nearer that date.

Highcliff Grill revamp combines the best of British-American Throughout its 15 years, Bournemouth Highcliff Marriott has striven to provide the very best hospitality service to the regional community. Responding to feedback from their loyal local customers, Bournemouth Highcliff Marriott has now totally reimagined and renovated their award-winning restaurant.

PR Man About Town Local entertainment soars! Director of one of the South’s leading PR Agencies, Darren Northeast PR, shares news and upcoming events in Dorset and beyond. It’s August which means eyes will be taking to the skies across Bournemouth as the town’s biggest and most established festival returns. Bournemouth Air Festival, which last year won the VisitEngland Awards for Excellence (the most prestigious awards in English tourism) returns from the 18th to the 21st of August. Last year over one million festival-goers flocked to the four-day event. This year, expect even more people as the festival takes over Bournemouth with a mass of entertainment on land, sea, and in the air. Some highlights include 4 Navy warships which are open to visitors, amphibious beach assault demonstrations, O’Briens Flying Circus, the Breitling Wingwalkers, and, of course, the Red Arrows! For our neighbours in Poole, the last few weeks have been a treat of some of the very best live music Dorset has to offer. Poole Harbour Festival recently saw over 30 live acts across two stages as locals and tourists came together to enjoy the family food and music festival. Summer Breeze on the quay also kicked off on the 21st of July and runs until the end of August. Taking place every Thursday, it’s a fantastic showcase of many talented local artists performing a wide range of genres. Highlights so far have included the awesome riffs of Saints of Sin and the bluesy vocals of up and coming singer / songwriter Tara Flanagan. With plenty more talented acts still to come, including one of my personal favourite’s Helen Jenkins, it’s well worth popping down for a great evening of entertainment which ends with fabulous fireworks. In some DNPR news, we are extremely proud to have been shortlisted in the finals of a prominent local business award as ‘Company of the Year’. We also have four of our clients up for six other awards on the same night. As you can imagine, our fingers are currently crossed super-tight for the ceremony in September! Personally, I am extremely proud to have been appointed an Ambassador of Dorset Community Foundation. Joining names which include former High Sheriffs, Deputy Lieutenants and renowned business people from across the area, it is a role I will not be taking lightly and I look forward to getting ‘stuck in’. With so much to do this month, make sure to make the most of our last month of Summer! As always, thanks for taking the time to cast your eyes over this edition of ‘PR Man About Town’ and make sure to catch us again next month. Darren Northeast, Director of Darren Northeast PR www.darrennortheast.co.uk

Nicholas St.Peter, Head Chef of the Highcliff Grill, said: “It’s an absolute thrill to be announcing the revamped, renewed and re-energised Highcliff Grill. We listened to the people who matter most, our customers, and thanks to their feedback I feel we have created something really wonderful – available nowhere else in Bournemouth.” To find out more or to book a table at the new Highcliff Grill, www.highcliffgrill.co.uk or contact 01202 200800.

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.

FOOD & DRINK

REVIEWED

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

THE LIBERTINE ‘Libertine’ (by dictionary definition): a freethinker; one who freely indulges in pleasures Well if you can’t beat them join them, as they say – onward to ‘pleasuretown’! Also known as, ‘The Libertine’. Situated in Westbourne, this independent gem has locals flocking for what they have to offer. Their mission and ethos is both charming and refreshingly honest: “To embrace freethinking, in a generally enjoyable atmosphere. By providing fresh, quality food, paired perfectly with a good wine list and great beers and ales”. What more could you ask for? The gastro pub is divided up into three sections: the main bar area, the informal dining area and the eloquently entitled ‘Forge’ – an outdoor/indoor eatery space where wood burning pizza ovens and off beat hipsters can get stuffed and wind down. We found a cosy spot in their dining area, overlooking their petite beer garden. As we took our places and settled down, it was time to begin the review.

168

The menu is an eclectic mash-up of pub classics, signature wood-fired pizzas and a few rustic yet refined dishes too. To start we opted for the ‘Rosemary and Garlic Baked Camembert’, served with lashings of sticky onion jam and crusty sourdough bread. I mean, when was cheese ever

a bad idea? Silky melted cheese, pulled apart with the insertion of the contrastingly crunchy bread. The luscious aromas that arose as the cheese was split: the intense and slightly floral trace of rosemary and the distinct and moreish smell of the garlic – to die for. In addition to the Camembert we also got to sample the ‘Bloody Mary Prawn Cocktail’, a rather special twist on a definitively eighties starter. Packed with zing and zest this dish was a real stand out. The prawns were well cooked, the sauce was punchy and the addition of fresh herbs brought a modest sophistication to the dish. Feeling prematurely full, we fought to muster up the strength to go on, but like true heroes – we soldiered on. For main we ordered a variety of dishes, including: one ‘35oz Bulls Head’, ‘Smoked and Streaky Bacon Pizza’, a ‘Meatless Lasagne’ and a classic ‘Bangers and Mash’ – Libertine style. With quite a selection of goodies at our disposal, we felt not unlike kings and queens at a banquet fit for such guests. The Bulls Head (fear not) was plated as a enormous T-bone, rather than a beastly carcass. It was seriously tender for such a large cut of meat there was only the tiniest pinch of gristle here and


FOOD & DRINK

there, but that’s entirely to be expected with such a portion. With an ample amount of medium-rare meat, this could easily have stood up against a T-bone of normal proportions, which is arguably more manageable to cook. The Smoked and Streaky Bacon Pizza was rather special too. They certainly didn’t scrimp on the toppings; with layers upon layers of salty bacon, partnered perfectly with West Country Brie. The subtle sweetness of the Brie made for a delightful contrast against the potent flavours of the red onion and sun-dried tomatoes: overall a simple, nonetheless knockout dish. But the joy didn’t end there… Being good sports, we thought it only fair to delve further down the rabbit hole as we fell helpless to the alluring call of dessert.

Now this is a somewhat shameful, but honest, confession. Though I have no issues giving up my time, my skills (whatever they maybe), or even my money to others, I take somewhat offence at the notion of sharing – though not sharing in general. I mean very much (if not exclusively) that I have a deep rooted issue with sharing - oh, I can’t even say it… sharing food. I know, I am a terrible human being, so you see whilst the suggestion of a sharing dessert platter was heard, it was also very quickly dismissed. Which is why I decided to opt for the ‘Chocolate Brownie’, alone. It arrived warm, gooey and rich, just as I had hoped it would. Aaaah, the comforting and familiar flavour of chocolate, there’s nothing quite like it; the rich and decadent aromas, the moreish texture – all totally on point. Having washed

it all down with a frothy coffee, it was time to part ways. My final report; If you’re looking for an independent that serves delicious food in a quirky yet cosy atmosphere you need The Libertine. Make a reservation, or just pop by! a.

Elle Beauty

Great Eyebrows Don’t Happen By Chance: They Happen By Appointment The eyebrow is the hottest accessory in the beauty industry right now. Ok, so it’s not like we’ve only just discovered them, but it would seem that we’re all seeking the same look: thick, full brows that add definition and intensity to your everyday look. With everyone trying to attain perfectly groomed facial framers, the demand for new and exciting treatments is higher than ever! We caught up with ‘Danielle Read’ of Elle Beauty to pluck and pick the latest in brow trends… Elle Beauty has been described as the South’s leading brow salon, specialising in brow enhancements. The salon is owned and managed by Danielle Read, the ‘brow expert’ nay genius, that is livening up the beauty world. They offer the most innovative brow and other such beauty treatments. They only use products from the most reputable companies within the beauty industry and their devotion to your beauty needs means that they can tailor the service specifically to you. Their friendly team will always be happy to answer any questions you may have and offer advice about the best treatments for you. Their recommendations speak for themselves really. A client asked “how can Elle Beauty transform my brows?”. Well they use a special technique known as ‘Microblading’ (sometimes Brow Embroidery). Don’t be alarmed, the term ‘blading’ sounds far more sinister than it actually is. The idea is to create a ‘semi-permanent effect’, by depositing small amounts of natural-hypoallergenic ink, into the superficial layer of skin within the eyebrow. It’s quite special and depending on the skin type, the results can last up to 3 years. The process begins with a detailed analysis of your brow shape as it currently is and a plan as to how you want them to be. The treatment can be slightly uncomfortable, but you can opt for a topical anaesthetic to be applied, which is applied in the form of a gel (so fear not, no needles in sight). The result: fantastic looking eyebrows that blend flawlessly with the existing brow hairs. If you don’t fancy something so permanent right away, you could always opt for the ‘HD Brow’ treatment: an increasingly popular way to achieve that ‘Kimmy K’ immaculate shape. The process consists of Tinting, Waxing, Threading, Plucking and Trimming the brows to achieve that smooth finish. The results can last up to 4 weeks and it is a perfect treatment for over-plucked and unruly brows alike!

HEALTH & BEAUTY

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

THE POWER OF TOUCH How massage can boost your performance… Pounding the pavements and eating piles of pasta isn’t the only way to train for a marathon. The weeks are flying by and the annual Bournemouth Marathon Festival weekend will soon be upon us! The Bournemouth Marathon has proved to be a huge success with so many people supporting this event that will raise money for many local and national charities. As well as the strict running programme and eating plan that runners follow, regular massage is essential also. A regular massage can help a runner’s body no end, to recover from the pains and aches of a lengthy run, and to improve blood supply and flexibility. Whether opting for a massage before or after a running workout or race, runners will soon feel the benefits of a massage, beating running injuries by returning to a pre-exercise bodily state.

Touch is the first sense to develop in humans, and may be the last to fade Massage in its numerous forms has been used for centuries. However, recent advances in sport and exercise science have highlighted the potential of sports massage to improve circulation and accelerate recovery from activity and injury. More importantly

you don’t need to be a marathon runner to receive these benefits; massage can significantly improve the condition of the muscles of any runner, of any level.

Massage returns muscle fibres to preexercise state Simply defined, massage encompasses a number of special techniques that involve a skilled therapist working into the tissues and muscle fibres of a runner’s body so that they are returned to their preexercise state. As running is a repetitive activity that stresses the body, numerous problems can occur such as general aches and pains and reduced flexibility. The deep massage, pumping and stroking movements improve circulation, remove waste products and improve elasticity. Furthermore, massage not only combats physical and physiological problems of runners, but the psychological benefits such as invigoration and reduction of mental tension are of equal benefit. Speaking from experience, I use my Massage as me time to completely switch off and unwind, which with the daily juggling act of work and family, is greatly needed!

There are approximately 5 million touch receptors in our skin– 3000 in a finger tip

ENJOY YOU TiME FOR LESS TREATMENTS INCLUDE

It is important to note that there are times when massage is an unsuitable treatment. When running injury first occurs, discomfort and inflammation will be at their greatest and massage should be avoided so that the condition is not made worse. This is particularly important when considering undertaking any form of self-massage. All in all, massage provides an impressive package of benefits to the runner. It helps keep runners injury-free, loose, supple and in optimum running condition. Whatever your training level is, Massage should be a regular treatment - time for your body to recover.
