Churchfield Estate Agents note the property market has been dominated by Brexit again this week to a large extent, with various banks, ratings agencies and international bodies opining on the direction prices are likely to take in the wake of the EU referendum outcome. But, life goes on irrespective of Brexit and there are developments elsewhere that are essentially going under the radar as we - as a nation - obsess about the markets, exchange rates and any signs of a weakening economy. Iain Miller who is the sales manager at Churchfield Estate Agents has recently conducted several successful sales on HMO properties on the West side of Bournemouth. As Iain points out this style

of investment property is often overlooked by todays professional investors, due mainly to being regarded as overly complex in their structure. The potential returns on these HMO properties make for a solid and extremely viable alternative to purchasing single small units. Iain has gained extensive knowledge of the specialist marketing and current legislation required to make these stand out and appeal in today’s investment marketplace. If you are considering selling or purchasing a property for investment purposes Iain is always happy to offer advice and assistance and would be delighted to talk to new investors wishing to invest. He is always happy to share his time and knowledge in order to build new relationships from which we can all prosper. Churchfield can be contacted on Bournemouth 01202 779911.

LESTER BRUNT WEALTH MANAGEMENT AND PROPERTY WEALTH INSURANCE BROKERS RAISE £15,500 FOR DIVERSE ABILITIES! It has now been revealed that the recent charity golf day held by Lester Brunt Wealth Management and Property Wealth Insurance Brokers raised a remarkable £15,500 for the Dorset’s Disability Charity, Diverse Abilities. The total proceeds from the golf day held at the prestigious Ferndown Golf Club will be put towards Integrex touch screens for Langside School; a charity run specialist school for pupils aged 2 to 19 with profound and multiple learning disabilities and complex medical needs.

The amount raised from the golf day allows Diverse Abilities to purchase two of these Integrex touch screens, meaning that there will be one available in every classroom at Langside School. Said Martin Brunt, “We are delighted that we have exceeded the total raised at last year’s golf day and are able to provide two Integrex touch screens for Langside School. We would also like to thank all of the other sponsors and local businesses who donated gifts for the raffles and auctions; it was a truly successful event.”

£6,000 will purchase a large Integrex touch screen computer for the specialist school. The fully interactive touch screen is height adjustable and the screen tilts which makes it perfect for children with sensory needs and easily accessible to children from wheelchairs or whilst lying on the floor.

Dorset-based Wyatt Homes, well known for building superior quality, luxury homes for over 25 years has new and exciting developments in the pipeline. Founded by Managing Director, David Wyatt, the company has built up a forceful reputation in the South West, largely as a result of its ability to consistently produce exceptionally high quality signature homes, individual in style and unique in architectural build. Planning permission has been granted for 70 new homes adjacent to Policemans Lane in Upton, Poole. The proposed development is for a selection of traditional style one, two, three, four and five bedroom new homes and apartments in a mix of high quality and attractive elevations including brick, render and timber. Proposals also include a village green and a natural green space to provide a variety of circular walks and parking. Outline planning has now been approved for 70 new homes and a new Community Hall, new village green and village square at Charminster Farm just outside Dorchester. It is expected that the new houses will be a mixture of one, two, three, four and five bedroom properties ranging from terraced apartments to detached houses all constructed to the very high specification and exceptional design that has become synonymous with the Wyatt Homes name. For more information on Wyatt Homes developments please visit: www.wyatthomes.co.uk

THE TEAM AT HOUSE MAGAZINE ARE ASKING OUR READERS TO HELP JOSH 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. 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!

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.

BELVOIR COMES TO BOURNEMOUTH YOUNG ENTREPRENEUR OPENS TOP NATIONAL FRANCHISE IN THE TOWN than £1billion. Commenting on Luke’s direct entry into the world of property management, Belvoir’s Managing Director Dorian Gonsalves says: “It is a bold and fairly unusual move for a relatively new franchise owner to launch their business with an acquisition.

At just 25, Luke Marchbanks, has bought the Belvoir Bournemouth office at 122 Castle Lane West, in an easily accessible central location near to the town’s busy Castle Point retail park. It now provides Belvoir’s multi-award winning service to the landlords and tenants of Bournemouth and surrounding areas.

“Belvoir is forward-thinking so when an acquisition opportunity of this calibre becomes available the company is always keen to help our franchise owners maximise the potential.”

The premises of former owners Newstead Lettings has been given a smart new look with a total rebrand in line with Belvoir’s corporate image. With a network of over 160 offices across the UK, Belvoir is the largest property franchise in the country looking after a property portfolio valued at more

Luke, who has a background in retail, has worked for many large corporate companies in senior management roles but he has always had a keen interest in property and a desire to own his own business. “Initially I was going to launch a cold start business,” he explains, “but when I looked into this acquisition, it was a hot prospect since the foundation of the business and the way it was set up by the previous

Following on from the success of last year’s event, Diverse Abilities is hosting its second Gala Ball at Poole Lighthouse on Saturday 26 November and is inviting the local community to join them at this glitz and glam event. Guests will enjoy a drinks reception from 6pm before sitting down to a three course gourmet meal, wine and entertainment from a 12-piece band and DJ, which will keep everyone dancing until late. The black and gold themed event, kindly sponsored by Franses Jewellers of Bournemouth, also includes other surprise entertainment and the opportunity to win great prizes.

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.

One of the newest and youngest franchise owners to join Belvoir’s nationally accredited network of property management offices has launched his new career with the acquisition of an established property lettings and sales business in Bournemouth.

JOIN CHARITY’S GLITZ AND GLAM GALA BALL

Last year’s event raised £60,000 and the charity would like to beat this at this year’s ball to continue providing vital support to children and adults with disabilities in Dorset. Tickets for the Gala Ball are £80 per person or £750 for a table of 10. To find out more or book online visit www.diverseabilities. org.uk/galaball or call 01202 718266.

owner was very strong. It lined up well with how I want to develop my own business so it is a good fit.” Luke says the property market in Bournemouth is fierce and competition is tough, but he is confident that Belvoir Bournemouth will have the edge on other agents. For more information call 01202 430108 or email bournemouth@belvoir.co.uk. Visit their website belvoir.co.uk

As well as the annual Gala Ball, Diverse Abilities hosts an array of different events all year round to support the families of those with disabilities.

ABOVE AND BEYOND... Southbourne based Plantation Shutter company Just Shutters, want to recognise the fantastic work carried out by Business Manager, Simon Osterloh.

garden designer, Helen Elks-Smith, for her success at the RHS Hampton Court Flower Show. Helen produced the stunning Zoflora Garden, inspired by the Yorkshire countryside, and very kindly asked us to supply the lighting for it. Her design won a gold medal and the best construction award.

Name of Employee - Simon Osterloh Job Role - Business Manager Length of Employment - 1 Year Outstanding achievements - Simon Osterloh has been with Just Shutters for exactly one year and over this time we have seen unprecedented growth. His commitment, professionalism and vision have driven our team forward, brought on board record numbers of new franchisees and enabled us to establish Just Shutters market leading brand in new territories across the country. We now cover over 125 towns and cities in the UK. Chris Rocker, Founder and Director, says; “Simon is an invaluable member of the team, he fitted in perfectly from day one, Simon has seen us through our challenges with a calm and measured approach and the results he has achieved speak for themselves. We are very lucky to have him!” Helen Rocker, Director, adds; “Simon has been a great addition to our business, he has taken to his role like a duck to water and enabled us to grow the business.” What makes him special - Chris Rocker, Founder and Director, says; “Simon is unflappable, he is able to approach any situation pragmatically and with his reasoned and businesslike approach to any problem, he has been a true leader.” Colleague and Marketing Manager, Charlotte Fantelli, adds; “working with Simon is a total pleasure, in an often fast paced environment his calming and professional approach is exactly what we need!”. We would like to thank Simon for his fantastic work and celebrate his one year with us. For more about our Just Shutters job opportunities or for simply stunning Plantation Shutters please see our website justshutters.co.uk or call us on 01202 240769.

The brief for us was to supply warm white discreet spotlights using high powered cob arrays, some of these were to be IP68 as they were going to be submersed underwater. These products would normally be built to IP65 as standard, so we were presented with a challenge to redesign the fittings to IP68 in a short timescale without affecting the performance, we do like a challenge! The Monflood 400 at 800 Lumens and the Monoflood 800 at 1200 Lumens were chosen because of their extremely small size and their high output, which meant they would blend in unnoticed. Our thanks also to Martin Gomm of Wycliffe Landscapes, and Craig at CB Electrical for all the wiring and installation on site.

If you love the bounce of walking on a well kept lawn, this one’s for you. We’ve achieved this by using the very latest yarn technology to create a variety of soft curving fibres

Like your grass to be a lighter shade of green? This option’s for you. The 30mm fibres are soft and hardwearing, but offer a lighter colour option that’s also easy on your budget.

Life’s too short to be mowing, watering and weeding the lawn. Spend more time doing what matters to you on a realistic artificial lawn that’s always immaculate and usable – whatever the weather.

Happy Hunting! How to easily buy a home in Spain Michael Reilly, Sales and Marketing Director, Select Resorts Properties In 2015, 13% of all residential property sales in Spain were by nonSpanish residents. The British accounted for 21% of all these sales highlighting our love for holiday homes in Spain; and the importance of Britain to Spain. Unsurprisingly, the vast majority of British home buyers in Spain are drawn to the Mediterranean coast, with regions such as Alicante, Malaga, and the Balearics all being key locations.

MOVING HOME CAN BE A DAUNTING PROSPECT... Moving home consists of packing and transporting often thousands of different objects, each of different value, shape and size, from one location

Spain experienced a huge boom in development from 1998, with the country building more property than France, Germany, and the United Kingdom combined up to 2007. The property boom was particularly evident along the Mediterranean coast, with demand being driven by an international mix of retirees, investors and those looking for affordable holiday homes. When the global economic crisis hit, property in Spain was badly affected.

to another, or into and then out of store. Given the stress of selling, buying

As a result the country saw average property prices decline dramatically; and this was particularly marked in the Costas.

Making an appointment for a surveyor to visit

The property market in Spain is now recovering steadily and many believe now is the ideal time to purchase. 2015 was the first year since 2008 that the price per sq m increased in the country. Recovery of certain areas, such as that of the Costa del Sol are gaining pace and Spain is definitely on the right track once again. With the recovery steadily underway and at the start of the increasing cycle, now is definitely a great time to take the plunge to buy here – but there are things you can do to ensure you make the right purchase for you – and to get a great deal.

details of your planned move. The appointment needs to be made in

If you’re looking to buy a home in Spain, we believe it should be an exciting and enjoyable experience. No matter what your motivation to purchase is; be it for a new life, a holiday home, or investment - it’s important to ensure you’re equipped with all the relevant information on where and how to buy. If not fully aware of how to purchase a property in Spain, the process can be costly, time-consuming and confusing. With over 82,000 properties currently for sale in Spain, just finding your dream property is the first challenge. That’s where Select Resorts Properties come in. Based in Poole, Select Resorts Properties are unique in that we have over 34 years’ experience in selling property across Spain, Europe and the rest of the world. We work with a selection of the best developers in Spain and have an enormous knowledge of the best places to buy, as well as which lawyers, mortgage advisors and foreign exchange partners provide the best service to customers. A family-run business, you’ll deal directly with an English-speaking Property Specialist, who will work to ensure the whole process of buying in Spain is as smooth and enjoyable as you’d hope it would be. Select Resorts Properties have a range of properties available for you today. Visit our website on www.SelectResortsProperties.com

and renting homes, it is no wonder that people often give little time to thinking exactly what will or will not be moved to their new home. Below you will find a few tips to help you prepare and plan for a smooth and efficient move to your new home.

In most cases our surveyor will visit you in your home to discuss the plenty of time, three to four weeks approximately before you intend to move is a good time to contact three to four removal companies in order to get your quotations. The surveyor will explain the services we provide and agree with you exactly what is to be included in the quotation. During the appointment the surveyor needs to understand how much requires moving, if packing is and any major dismantling is required, the time it will take them and how far they need to travel. The surveyor will then arrange the appropriate number of vehicles, number of men and packing materials to meet your requirements. A written quotation will then be provided to you, either by email or in the post, detailing everything that was agreed during the appointment, within a couple of days.

Packing Packing can be the most time consuming and frustrating part of any move. If you can afford to have it done professionally by us, do so. As a member of the British Association of Removers we use a wide range of appropriate packing materials and employ fully trained staff who will pack your things professionally and safely.

MAKING WAVES Richard Carr gives his views on current events

SERVICE CHARGE ARREARS As the leaseholder you will have agreed, under the terms of your Lease, to pay service charge, buildings insurance and Ground Rent. These obligations should have been made clear to you by your solicitor. After all, you have signed a legal agreement where you have agreed to pay these monies. Despite this we receive comments and queries daily from leaseholders who are unaware of any payment being required.

Has the internet and information technology really improved our quality of life? I love technology and always have, before cellular phones came out in mass in 1987, I had a fixed car phone that worked on Radio Frequency, I will always remember my father commenting at the time, that it was a complete extravagance and a waste of money. Well he is from a different era and maybe he was right, as now I hate my phone and I hate IT. How did we conduct business or our lives in general before this awful era, which in my opinion has destroyed our quality of life, and has led

Where leaseholders fail to settle service charges when due this can create significant cash flow issues and have a detrimental effect on the property. Other leaseholders end up subsidising those who haven’t paid and ultimately the property has no funds available and services need to be stopped An important part of being an effective property manager is having a robust policy for dealing with arrears. This approach helps to ensure that sums due are collected promptly and ensure that the property has sufficient funds to meet the expenditure for the year. At SPL Property Management we are pleased to say that our arrears procedure has been very effective in ensuring that service charges are collected promptly and as a result the majority of properties within our portfolio have no cash flow problems.

to an Orwellian secret state.

Tips for leaseholders to avoid problems with Service Charge arrears Well let’s take it to pieces bit by bit. I am sure, as I have been buying and selling businesses and property all my life, that conveyancing a property has got slower not faster, since the technological revolution. Well let’s look at that point in some detail. A lawyer will tell you that they are “waiting for searches” or that the other party have not yet returned their CPSE enquiries (information on the property that you are buying). Well why has IT not speeded up this part of our life? Could it be that Lawyers have not wanted to let it, so instead we just get bombarded with emails asking the most stupid and trivial questions. In the old days you put the matter in hand and got invited in a few weeks later, you’d enjoy a lovely cup of tea, and would go through the contract and be asked to sign there and then! I hate to be the cynic, but is this not a case of making a simple job look complicated? Take the demise of the High Street and many other businesses has been directly attributable to the Internet. Whereas I am not in any way advocating the closure of it, some form of control should have been exercised to make its effect more gradual. For example: if you are a retailer you have showrooms, business rates, staff, the cost of fitting out the units and the list goes on and on. If you are on Amazon you have the WWW and a warehouse. How can the high street live in that world? It cannot, so as usual Government is not in touch with the real world. All web-based businesses should pay treble business rates and the subsidy should be passed on to the High Street, especially the SME’s, and if the goods come from an overseas warehouse via the web, then the VAT should be doubled. Then of course there are the ‘Social Media’ sites that we are all guilty of being involved in at one degree or another. Besides the advertising revenue that has disappeared from the mainstream, let’s consider the demise of newspapers and printed publications, and moreover all of the corner shops, which have relied on printed media as an important part of their business model.

1) Talk to your Managing Agent as early as possible – if your agent knows there might be a problem there is most likely something which can be done. 2) Make sure your Agent(s) know your correspondence details – if invoices aren’t being sent to the right address they won’t be paid. Where you have separate agents for collection of Service Charge and Ground Rent make sure they both have the same details. 3) Put money aside each month to go towards your next service charge – saving a little each month will help to ease the strain when you next get your quarterly/half yearly/annual service charge bill. 4) Talk to your mortgage company – They have an interest in your property and will usually be able to assist, especially where a large amount may be due for works to the property. If you can make an agreement with them it will avoid the cost of the freeholder’s solicitors making the same arrangement with them at a later date, and most likely after a CCJ has been obtained against you. 5) Don’t make assumptions – Do not assume that paying monthly will be agreed. Any agreement would be dependent on the property’s financial situation and obligations through the year. It may be that a payment plan can be agreed but this would need to be agreed in writing with your agent. 6) Talk to your Managing Agent – Yes, we have included this twice as it is the most important element in dealing with arrears. If your agent knows what is going on they are less likely to take further unnecessary action. If you stay silent they will have no other option. If you constantly struggle with arrears or would like to discuss any other concerns about at your property please contact us today for a no-obligation discussion and quotation on our management services.

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

62

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!

HOUSE MAGAZINE TALKS BUINESS WITH…

VANTAGE POINT Keep Letting, Less Stressing Jon Duignan, the owner and managing director of Vantage Point took the time to explain how his company can help make you a pretty penny out of your unoccupied property: “This particular client (as in the photos in this article) is away a lot working, so it’s not really being used for almost 6 months of the year. Which is where we (Vantage Point) can help. The property owner will give us the dates that he doesn’t intend to occupy the property for, then we make it our mission to fill those dates with renters via the Airbnb website” For those of you who aren’t familiar with the Airbnb service. Here’s a little insider information: ‘The latest in travel accommodation’; Airbnb consists of an online portal that enables homeowners to rent out their property/flats/cottages (whatever really) 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, as opposed to choosing more conventional accommodation such as hotels. The site itself makes this really easy to do so. For starters, each property is required to display their availability on the easy to navigate website. This

If this article has stirred your curiosity, then get in touch with Jon at Vantage Point for some handy information, and explore the possibility of your potential financial gain.

is a huge development, which saves holidaymakers so much time swapping emails back and forth with the property owners. All of the information you need is there in black and white. Finally technology that matches our ‘want now’, fast paced, way of living. Where Vantage Point comes in, is the handling of bookings and managing of your property. Take this property for example: once the property owner has negotiated available dates for rental of the property, the VP team can then get to work. They will arrange some professional photographs to be taken, along with a professional write up to allure guests and holidaymakers alike. Essentially it’s about marketing your property, optimizing its potential income. A lot of holiday home owners, (or even just home owners who are frequently away) get very disheartened owning a property that often costs them more to keep when it’s empty. Although the property isn’t being used, you have to consider the costs of rolling taxes, the cost of damage repair, even something as simple as running the taps to avoid bacteria building up in your plumbing. Then of course there is the added pressure of getting renters in, which to be perfectly honest is a fulltime job in itself.

The team at Vantage Point has years of experience in property under their belts. Having come from a background in property development and property maintenance, they really know the ins and outs of all things house and home. Now of course there is the more ordinary way of letting out your property (to a full-time renter for example), but let me enlighten you as to the financial reality. Say you have a tenant for a set period of the year (perhaps a student or someone that is working in the area for a certain amount of time). That fixed fee is all you stand to make. Whereas the service Vantage Point offer via the Airbnb website, could make you so much more. By hosting multiple lodgers over shorter periods of time, your rates can stand to be a lot higher. Think of it in terms of what you’d be willing to rent a property for living, as apposed to how much you’d willingly pay for a hotel room for the weekend – especially a property such as this one, in such a stunning beachfront location.

Vantage Point truly takes the stress out of the entire process. Whilst you stay in your regular home, or are away on work (or even a holiday of your own), Vantage Point handles everything. Booking in renters, maintaining the property and preparing it for guests, even meeting and greeting them (if necessary). They can manage as much or as little as you would like, but its great to know they really can do it all. Not to mention the relief of having your property ready for when you decide to come and stay in it yourself. The last thing you’d want to do on your relaxing break is to have to deal with a leak, or an even just an untidy room. It’s important to stay open minded. You don’t have to be a second homeowner to reap the benefits of Vantage Point’s unique service. Consider this: even if you are only away for 2 weeks of the year on a holiday of your own, that’s 2 weeks you could rent out your property for – how does that free holiday sound?

Another moving experience, with Quay Living “We were very happy with the service we got from Quay Living. It all went perfectly from the very beginning. We say this because we had to pull out of the previous purchase, and the agency we had to deal with was awful, slow and very rude. This purchase only took about 8 weeks, which was very quick, compared to our last experience. This makes such a big difference! The best thing was that if we were promised a call, that call would happen promptly. Even after the purchase, we got the best service from your staff. So thank you very much for all your support. We wish your agency the greatest success.“

Kindest regards,

Oleg, Tanya & our Baby Orchard Plaza

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

WHY USE A LETTING AGENT! Obviously, I am an agent and I believe you should, however, you may have been doing it for years and have never had a problem so why would you entertain one now, I mean, all we do is find a tenant, create a tenancy and move them in, don’t we? Some private landlords understand the value and use an agent to find a tenant for them and then take over the management, because they feel ‘hopefully’ they are then legally covered and have crossed all the ‘I’s’ and ‘t’s first, but then fail to do the correct procedure of paperwork if the tenancy is then rolled over onto a month by month basis. We are, in my humble opinion, so much more than that. I have lost count the number of changes in the legislations we have had in the last couple of years and the ones that are still to come into play. ‘Landlord’ is almost a dirty word in government, with all the penalties they have put in place. So, what will an agent do for you? 1. Conduct viewings and put forward the best applicant for you. (At Move On we never do a ‘let for the sake of a let’). 2. Credit check and reference your prospective tenant. (At Move On we go beyond the normal referencing with other extra vital checks). 3. We produce the legal paperwork (At Move On we are continuously updating our training to make sure the right paperwork is produced, signed and proved to be served). 4. We communicate with the landlords with prospective tenants, maintenance issues and never make a decision without the authority of the landlord. 5. We aim to deal with maintenance queries quickly and efficiently to ensure the tenants are happy. 6. We minimise gaps between tenants as we understand the importance of void rental income. 7. We attend vital property inspections at least 3 times during the first year. 8.

We will attend the property weeks before a tenant moves out to ensure a smooth move out.

9. We pay rents on time every month. (Move On have never been late.) 10. Move will hold your hand, help produce the correct paperwork and attend court if necessary with you if a tenant needs to be evicted. We know the legal procedure, and helps minimise solicitors costs. 11. As a landlord you will know the Move On Team, because we make it our business to know you. If you are not getting any of the above, call me, because the above should be standard. If you are looking to rent, sell, buy or invest then take a look at OUR DOUBLE PAGE SPREAD ON PAGES 64 & 65.

INTERVIEW

POWERBOAT P1

Powerboat racing and jet ski action returns to Bournemouth We got the chance to catch up with Robert Wicks, the Chief Operating Officer of Powerboat P1, to find out about the upcoming Grand Prix of the Sea to be staged in Bournemouth supported by the Coastal BID. Firstly (to those of you who might be wondering) let’s clarify the wild-watersports world of ‘P1 Racing’: As arguably the fastest growing marine motorsport series in the world, you can’t (or soon won’t be able to) deny the waves that this sport is making, and it’s not just here in the UK either – the company runs an identical series in the USA and has just opened offices in Malaysia to launch the brand in Asia. Don’t be fooled, whilst there are similarities between F1 and P1, there are also some fundamental differences. Take the opulence of F1 for example: whilst P1 racing certainly has a certain amount of highlife bravado, it’s actually far more accessible and far more affordable. Ok, let’s cover the ‘elephant in the room’ too, that being that the biggest difference of all, is of course, the fact that it is racing on water, not asphalt. I can only imagine the thrill: the rushing water, the wind, a pounding surge of adrenalin – very daring, very 007. The drama intensifies with the course constantly changing beneath you and the racing conditions never being the same as the last race. The media coverage for these events is constantly growing, with P1 now maintaining a regular spot on both Sky and the ‘Motors TV’ channel on Freeview. It’s lights, camera, and plenty of heart-pumping action for these guys and girls. Speaking of which, onwards to the interview: So Rob, how did you get into P1 Racing? I have always been involved in the commercial side of sport and joined P1 from the world of motorcycle racing. This was an exciting opportunity to get involved in something new, so I took it. It was always going to be an interesting challenge, but I knew it would be a great one and I’ve been working in this industry for eight years now.

128

How fast do these boats really go? They can reach up to 70 miles per hour which might not seem like a lot, but on water, that’s pretty quick. With the constantly changing conditions of

the water, no two laps are ever the same, plus there is close proximity to other racers to deal with that makes for an exhilarating challenge.

come and watch. Of course if you were interested in VIP or hospitality packages, then we encourage people to get in touch before everything is sold out.

As chief operating officer, what does your role entail? When we’re out on an event, I guess my tasks fall more under the role of an ‘Event Director’; I oversee the wider event and work closely with the Race Management team to ensure everything is on schedule. Back at the office, there is a broad mix of operational, commercial and media related activities as we grow and expand the business.

What has been the high point of your P1 career so far? There have been a lot of great experiences but our recent event in Scotland is right up there. Powerboat racing is often maligned as a niche sport and for not being spectator friendly, but P1 turned that idea on its head and showed the sport’s true potential to attract fans by engaging a crowd of more than 30,000 on the River Clyde at the inaugural P1 Scottish Grand Prix of the Sea, the biggest crowd the sport has seen at an event in more than 20 years.

Could you describe the feeling of racing to those who have probably never ridden in a P1 race boat? Sure! It’s a bit like being in a washing machine, with the spray coming up from all different angles. You have to work with whatever the weather conditions are on the day of the event, whilst listening to radio communications from both your team mate and the race management team – all of this from the confines of the race cockpit and wearing a race suit, helmet and lifejacket. It’s definitely challenging, but an incredible rush! What’s most exciting about P1 racing? As this is one-design racing, the boats are pretty much identical – same design, same weight, same propeller and same horsepower so this really makes the racing exciting as it tends to be fought at close quarters. We also run a ‘Pit Lap’ during the races which sees each team having to take an extended lap at a time of their choosing, with the objective being to return to the race course in clean water. It adds a strategic element to the racing – though it can make life a little tricky for the commentary team! How are you preparing for the up-coming race weekend in Bournemouth? We are pretty much all set. This is the third year in a row that the racing takes place in Bournemouth and it’s a great location to bring the season to a close. The P1 circus will be rolling into town on Thursday 1 September. The the teams all arrive on Friday and racing takes place over the weekend, with our champions crowned on the podium on Sunday afternoon. It’s going to be a really exciting event, so I hope many of your readers can come down. It’s totally free to

Importantly, the event managed to make a huge difference to the local economy, contributing some £2.5 million in economic benefits. The Clyde has a long history of shipbuilding that has since been forgotten, so it was nice to rekindle some of that history and give the local community the chance to celebrate their heritage. What is your ultimate goal? For us as a company, we have exciting expansion plans both in terms of new territories and new classes. We’re not far away from launching our race series in Malaysia, we’re expanding our US race series into new states and this year the UK series raced in Scotland for the first time, so we are certainly starting to spread our wings. In terms of race classes, we’re launching a new one-design RIB racing series in 2017 and we’re also expanding our personal watercraft racing with the acquisition of the JetCross World Tour in Europe. In terms of the sport itself, I hope we can continue to make it even more accessible and affordable for new participants. We also hope to get the sport’s governing body, the UIM, to be more actively involved too – helping to create new funding opportunities to ensure that the cost are kept under control, youngsters are encouraged to get involved and that high standards of safety and technical development are maintained.

REVIEWED

FULL SCREAM AHEAD For the thrill seekers! ‘Go on a RIB’ they said, ‘you’ll have fun’ they said… well you know what: they were absolutely right! What an amazing day. The team at House had been invited to day of seafaring ‘Bond’ style. Definitely not for the fainthearted, this adrenaline pumping thrill ride propelled our sluggish Monday morning vibes well and truly away. With our captain for the day ‘Tony Jacques’ at the helm, we couldn’t wait to get out onto the open water. If you’ve never heard of (or never quite understood) the difference between various boating vessels, here’s a little insider info: our water motor for the day was a one of a kind, super speedy, ‘Technohull RIB’. RIB stands for Rigid Inflatable Boat and they call this cool customer the Technohull SV-909. Picture a supercharged inflatable boat with solid fibreglass bottom, only this one was totally reinforced, loaded with a 350 horsepower Mercury outboard engine and decked out with plush interiors. Our RIB in particular was uber-chic. The dashboard alone was stunning: dipped in carbon fibre and complete with silver trimmings and cup holders (not that you’d

want to take your hands off on the handle bars during your excursion). Not forgetting the state of the art Bluetooth sound system on board. When the speed of the music and the speed of the boat ascend simultaneously, it lifted our sprits even higher. Our journey began at Full Scream Ahead’s mooring base, ‘Salterns Marina’, just outside of Sandbanks. We were so fortunate with the weather: the sun was on full beam and there wasn’t a single cloud in the sky. Surrounded by luxury crafts, looking out over glistening water, we couldn’t have been happier. After a quick caffeine fix and a briefing with their marketing man Tim Coe, it was time to set sail… ‘Tony’ our captain and owner of Full Scream Ahead, started his career in boats at the early age of 18, with his first boat firm in Poole. Since then he’s been earning himself an enviable reputation locally. Offering everything from general boat repairs, servicing or antifouling right through to selling pre-owned and brand new powerboats. When we asked Tony what it is about his work he loves he told us, “I get to do this kind of thing every day, I just want other people to be able to come and experience how amazing it is!”

One by one we boarded the 30ft RIB and took our seats. Seats which I must add were rather comfortable, well to put it more aptly, seats that made the experience of holding on for dear life more pleasant. The seats were covered in lavish red upholstery and finished with chrome handles on the wings of each chair. The very back of the boat was fitted with a wider seat come sofa (if there’s someone in the office you think deserves a good soaking, stick them here). The journey began at a gentle pace of ten miles per hour across Poole Harbour. What a splendid voyage; taking in the sights of multi-million pound Sandbanks homes and the various other vessels, the waves smoothly rolling over one another – sheer bliss. But we knew this tranquil passage had a short lifespan and no sooner did that thought occur, did the speed begin to increase. What a rush! Imagine that exhilarating feeling you get from ridding a rollercoaster, only without the harness. The team whooped and cheered as we rode over the now less tranquil and rather more ferocious waves. It was an incredible experience. Tony whipped the boat from side to side creating an even more thrilling ride.

caught up in the excitement and thrill of the moment. Hitting a wave at a whopping 40 miles per hour (which on water really feels like 80MPH) and purposely crashing down to create an enormous splash. Whilst I sat up front watching the approaching waves, the not so gentle sounds of panicked shrills (of the boys) behind me, I couldn’t help but shout ‘what a great day out!’. I must admit to being a tad relieved the sea conditions prevented us from achieving the Technohull’s maximum speed of 63mph. Walking away I felt as though I’d truly spent the day in the life of a super spy; the entire team couldn’t stop talking about their experience and how incredible it had been. Having gone with my coworkers and left feeling so elated from sharing such an unusual and exhilarating couple of hours, I can easily see why so many companies are opting for a Full Scream Ahead experience as their go-to team bonding activity, or a way to show clients they really appreciate their business. I thoroughly recommend putting this forward to your boss, or booking this for the next staff day out! To book your next team adventure, get in touch!

In addition, visitors will be able to explore over 60 debuting boats.

Sunseeker Predator 68 MK II, Sealine F530 and Fjord 40 Open. Alongside well-established attractions, On the Water’s Try-a-Boat and Get Afloat, this year’s Show will offer a new opportunity for the youngest generation to get on the water for free. Suitable for children aged 3 to 13, Bumper Boats provides youngsters with a chance to master boat steering, as well as the boat’s built-in water cannon.

Throughout the 10 days, visitors can expect to enjoy a line-up of live music, fashion shows and expert talks. There will also be the opportunity for visitors to be part of the Show’s very own Guinness World Record Attempt of the ‘Largest human image of a boat’ on Saturday 24 September. What’s more, visitors will be able to discover over 27 new brands exhibiting in 2016.

Sailmakers, as well as holiday & charter companies: Rubicon 3 and UGuest. This year’s Show will be the first for Greg Munford in his newly appointed position as British Marine Boat Shows’ Chairman. As Chief Executive of Richardson’s Leisure, Greg Munford is familiar with taking a fresh approach and bold ideas. Already in his short period in office he has been instrumental in planning for this year’s Show. As Greg comments: “As Britain’s biggest boating festival, the Southampton Boat Show is much-loved by sail and powerboat enthusiasts alike and one of the leaders in the global boating calendar. We’re thrilled to have seen soaring tickets sales so far, which are now more than double what they were this time last year. “Helping plan this year’s event with all its new attractions to entertain the diversity of visitors and more importantly, get more people out on to the water has been a fantastic experience. Being a boater myself, the mix of new international and British brands who will be showcasing the latest boats and marine equipment makes this Show even more exciting for me to be a part of.”

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

JETSKI SAFARIS Salterns Marina, 40 Salterns Way, Poole, BH14 8JR I couldn’t hide my excitement when I was greeted by two of Jet Ski Safari employees until they smiled and said “Should be pretty choppy out there today!” The winds were picking up, the sky was looking grey and so was my face. Our Sales director Ross on the other hand perked up and was chomping at the bit to push these jet skis to the limit on the choppy waters. Keep in mind that these Jet Skis reach speeds up to and over 50 MPH (seen clearly on an electronic dashboard) and I have never Jet Ski-ed before. It didn’t help that once handed our wet suits I came out of the changing rooms with my wet suit back to front. Not a good start. After a brief 10 minute safety video we were led by our qualified personal watercraft instructor to our 2015 Seadoo GTI Jetski to hit the open seas. You can either take the option of riding solo on a Jetski or sharing with a friend, partner or family member. When there are two people per Jetski the instructor will give plenty of time for both people to experience the thrill of both driving and being a passenger by swapping you around during the experience.

136

With no prior experience I was surprised at how simple these machines were to navigate. We were led out of the marina, past the Sandbanks ferry and alongside Brownsea Island. I soon had a huge smile

on my face as we were eased in with a beginner slalom course then pushed to high speed drag style racing. From there we were guided by our instructor out on the open sea and along the stunning Jurassic Coastline. The instructors were not wrong. It was windy and the sea was very rough but this just added to the thrill! I was soon pushing the Jetski up to 50 mph and bouncing across the waves with Old Harry Rocks just ahead of me. I was in my element and an experience I wish to enjoy again very soon. We were treated with an hours worth of Jet Skiing, which is more than enough time to test your skills, your nerves and take in the breathtaking scenery of the Jurassic Coast. Don’t let the end of the summer holidays put you off. September and October provide the best couple of months to get out and enjoy the activities. With the sea at its warmest temperature of the year and the peak summer rush over, the beautiful waters of Poole and Sandbanks come into their own. Jetski Safaris is not the only fun the company can offer. There are bespoke events that can include a combination of Yacht, Rib and Aquatic Jetpack and Hoverboard experiences. They can also cater for Stag and Hen Parties, Corportate events and Powerboat trips so the more the merrier!

Welcome to Harbour Yachts, Poole and Dorset’s friendly, efficient and professional motorboat and yacht brokers. I bought the business in March as an existing thriving yacht brokerage.

HOME IMPROVEMENTS

COASTAL CRUSH As an island nation, it’s hardly surprising we’re drawn to the sea, and the trend for coastal style decor returns with the regularity of the tide every summer.

The Swallow print duvet set, double, £16, available from George Home (Photo credit: PA Photo/Handout)


HOME IMPROVEMENTS

1 It’s clean, crisp look is so appealing, and lifts spirits by bringing to mind memories of sun, sea and sand holidays. Happily, taking the plunge and conjuring this easyon-the-eye look isn’t difficult, and it’s a perfect way to revamp rooms suffering a decor winter hangover. So get on board and cruise into a full-on captain’s cabin look, complete with anchor motifs and a ship’s wheel, conjure the sand-between-your-toes informality of a beach hut, or simply be inspired by the natural landscape of the seashore with a neutral palette and swooping seabirds imagery.

Shipshape Chic Salute a classic coastal look with a sea-spray white and blue scheme, with nautical touches. “The spirit of the British seaside is alive in our coastal collection, where the warmth of nostalgia is given a fresh, modern update,” says Caroline Driver, designer at John Lewis. “Relaxed textures, simple stripes and plainly crafted pieces reflect the comfort and informality of a home by the sea. We’ve enjoyed reminiscing about our childhood experiences of the coast and visiting British seaside towns for inspiration. We’ve included marine motifs, such as ropes, anchors and sailing boats, on all sorts of pieces, alongside fabrics with classic deckchair stripes in whites and blues.” DECOR TIP: Surf supermarkets for style - this season they’re awash with pieces: by Sainsbury’s Authentic By The Shore Embroidered Cushion, with an anchor design, is a bargain at £14, and available in stores and online.

GET THE LOOK: Generous-sized seating’s key for a space where relaxed informality rules. John Lewis’ Nelson Sofa, from £699, can be upholstered in a pale blue Selva Pacific fabric and teams well with a Holkham Armchair, in a deep blue Solva Blueprint fabric, from £1,199. Bring in stripes with a Padstow Footstool, from £299, and a Coastal Stripe Throw, £49.

Navigate carefully through the vast array of nautical accessories - too many could capsize the look into kitsch - so select a few simple statement items. An Anchor Table Lamp by Jonathan Adler, with a price tag of £345, is definitely for those with a serious coastal crush. Pay a more affordable nod to the style with a Porthole Style Chrome Mirror, £75, Next. Cream Cornwall’s brilliant Maritime selection has Mackerel Lampshades, £48-£196, and beautiful bone china dinnerware: a Packet Ship Dinner Plate, £17-£24.

Beachcomber Beauty Sun-bleached neutrals and driftwood grey tones conjure an unpretentious beach-hut sanctuary. “Opt for a pared-back style with a muted colour palette, which reflects all the shades of the sea, from stormy steel to high-noon azure. The addition of bleached woods and pale textiles will create a living area that’s as calm and cool as an ocean breeze,” advises Andrew Tanner, head of home design at Sainsbury’s. “The essence of our coastal collection brings together organic forms, reactive glazes and matte tactile surfaces. Bring in detail with sea-green bubbled glassware, model sailing boats, beachy artwork, and interesting textures provided by wicker storage and pottery in driftwood-hues, to add further charm and personality.”

DECOR TIP: Coast away from conventional lights and opt for a quirky Vegas Metal LED Circus Light

- Anchor, £39, Cult Furniture, and monochrome Sea Shell Votives, £6 each, with a choice of a coiled shell or sea snail design, from Monty’s Vintage Shop. GET THE LOOK: Stripped floorboards, white painted tongue and groove panelling for walls, and weathered furniture are essential ingredients for a shoreside retreat. Sainsbury’s Coastal Living includes Glass Bottles, from £5; a Bird Cushion, featuring white seabirds on a grey background, £12; tasselled Coastal Bird Throw, £14, and Blue Ceramic Vase, £12. No yacht - no problem! Simply accessorise with a wooden Linea Ships Wheel, currently reduced from £40 to £20, House of Fraser, and dress up a sofa with a Super Soft Printed Heron Cushion, reduced from £8 to £4, George Home.

Rule The Waves Evoke a gentle, seashore setting with a soft palette of pale, watery blues. “This trend evokes the romantic notion and escapism of life at sea, and our collection’s influenced by the tantalising tales and legends of the ocean life,” says Julie Varma, senior design director at George Home. “This season sees the conventional coastal colour palette take a theatrical turn, with the introduction of inky blues, hints of soft pastel blue and smoky grey hues and lilac. Thoughtful details, such as rope, rustic linens, classic sailor stripes, emulate the beauty of an antique cabin.”

DECOR TIP: Add a touch of luxury with metallic silver to evoke the enigmatic glimmer of the ocean. Mermaid Antique Mirror Tray, £10, George Home.

Get on board with George Home’s highly original swallowprint bedlinen collection, featuring appropriately naval tattoo-style designs with swooping birds, anchors and a ‘faith, hope, love’ slogans: Swallow Print Double Duvet Set, £16.

OUTDOOR LIVING

ENJOY THE OUTDOORS THIS BANK HOLIDAY WEEKEND At Reformed Plastics all of our products are made from 100% recycled plastic. We manufacture products ourselves and then sell direct to the Domestic and Commercial sector. Due to ever increasing importance to recycle & protect the environment, our products are made from 100% recycled plastic. The plastic used is recycled in the UK and is the perfect alternative to wood. Our aims are to help rebuild the environment by utilizing a commodity, which people would otherwise just throw away, and so turn what to some would be rubbish into a valuable product for everybody. Our products have many practical & very useful properties & has an infinite range of different uses, some of which being are as decking, fencing, outdoor furniture,

planters,

boardwalks,

landscaping,

bollards, signage & construction etc. The list of possibilities is endless and the long-term advantages it has over traditional materials are staggering! It’s a great investment, as it never needs to be replaced due to its high strength and durability, therefore it quickly pays for itself in the long run. In short, it’s worry free! We recycle plastic and then manufacture goods from it, we produce recycled plastic furniture for use in gardens and patios and we retail recycled plastic products such as recycled plastic fencing and recycled plastic decking. The concept of Reformed Plastics was born over 15 years ago from the curiosity of its founder. Being an engineer by profession, and having had his own UPVC Windows business, and also being the practical and inquisitive person that he is, one day he decided to find out what was really happening to the waste that people were so freely throwing away. His research and interest lead him to focus on plastics, how it can be recycled and what it could be reused for. He discovered that the USA & a few European countries had been recycling and remanufacturing waste plastics into alternative timber products for many years, instead of throwing it all into landfill! Over time, slowly but surely he developed a few basic products in the form of planks and posts and very soon he began to receive interest from people wanting to know more about this revolutionary product that is both an environmentally friendly alternative to normal timber and sustainable which means it will save them a lot of money in the long 156

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

MOTORING

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

NEW CACTUS MODEL Citroën is extending its C4 Cactus range with the introduction of a new C4 Cactus W Special Edition. With a Pearl White body, white door mirrors and Dune coloured Airbump, the new model will be on sale in the UK from 1 August, priced from £18,890. Based on the range-topping Flair trim level, C4 Cactus W features dark tinted rear windows, satellite navigation, automatic air conditioning, a colour reversing camera, split-folding rear seats and a space saver spare wheel, plus the addition of the striking new colour scheme and the exclusive white alloys. Offering a choice of two engines, the new C4 Cactus W can be specified with either the 3-cylinder turbo petrol PureTech 110 S&S – an International Engine of the Year winner 2016 – or the Blue HDi 100, which boasts CO2 emissions of 95g/km.

ROAD TEST: HYUNDAI I20 ACTIVE Hyundai describes its i20 as ‘a small family hatchback with real substance’ and while it is up against very strong competition, its hard to argue with that advertising claim, writes NICK FLETCHER. Rivals include Ford Fiesta, Volkswagen Polo and Vauxhall Corsa - all big sellers – yet spec for spec the i20 is cheaper and comes with a 5-year unlimited mileage warranty the others cannot match. A decade ago, Hyundai cars were perceived as rather cheap and cheerful - but not any more. The Korean brand has become much more mainstream thanks to innovative design, outstanding build quality and generous levels of equipment. The latest i20 underlines all this - its a smart, sophisticated family hatch with stand-out styling and a spacious interior. Longer, lower and wider than previous models thanks to an all-new platform, the car offers more space for occupants and luggage. With petrol and diesel engines available, i20 prices start at £9,995. My recent test model was an upper-spec Active variant with the three-cylinder 1.0 litre turbo petrol engine and costing £15,775. This is a remarkably good small engine which still offers 99 hp and surprisingly nippy peformance.

The 0-60 mph time is 10.7 seconds, top speed 116 mph. And for a turbo-power model, the combined fuel economy figure is impressive at 62.8 mpg. With longer wheelbase and wider track, the i20 is very composed, feeling stable and secure even if pushed hard. The steering is well-weighted for precise feedback and the slick gearshift helps the feeling of complete driver control. Ride quality can be a little bumpy on rutted roads, but overall the i20 is very comfortable. The exterior styling, with dipping bonnet and wide front grille, help give a classy look with a sporting edge. In the cabin, there is chic look and quality trim materials. Rear seat accommodation is very good, with plenty of leg, shoulder and head room. The 326 litre boot is one of the biggest in the sector, and the rear seats drop flat to give 1,042 litres of load space. Standard kit on the test model included 17-inch alloys, roof rails, skid-plates, rear spoiler, variable boot floor, aircon, daytime running lights, privacy glass, cruise control, DAB radio/CD/USB/Aux, 4 power windows, front side and curtain airbags, hill-start assist, and tyre-pressure monitoring, All that, plus good driving dynamics and the 5-year warranty make the i20 hard to beat in its class.

TOYOTA HILUX

160

Now available to order, the stunning new open-top Audi R8. Capable of 197 mph and with a 0-60 mph time of just 3.6 seconds, the R8 convertible is priced from £129,990. Audi says: “The ground-up rework of the R8 Spyder brings it very much up to date not only by adding more power and a 50 per cent uplift in torsional rigidity, but also sophisticated new features including the fully digital Audi Virtual Cockpit, the Audi smartphone interface and internet-based Audi Connect services.” The car features a lightweight, fully automated cloth hood, which can be activated at speeds of up to 31mph. The rear window, sunk into the bulkhead, can also be retracted and extended at the touch of a button. The strong backbone of the new R8 Spyder is the newly developed multi-material Audi Space Frame which incorporates a mix of aluminium and carbon fibre that helps to keep weight down to just 1,612kg. torsional rigidity has increased by over 50 per cent compared with the previous model, helped by Spyder-specific body reinforcements primarily in the sills, A-pillars and windscreen frame. Power comes from a V10 engine with a fast-acting seven-speed S tronic transmission and a newly designed quattro drive system.


MOTORING

NEW LOOK UP!

ROAD TEST: SUZUKI BALENO The Baleno is Suzuki’s new five door hatchback, more spacious than its Swift stablemate and featuring a punchy yet economical 1.0 litre turbo-boost petrol engine, writes NICK FLETCHER. Prices start at £12,999 and while there is no diesel version, there is also a 1.2 petrol model with a hybrid system which offers a combined fuel figure of 70.6 mpg. Suzki says most buyers will opt for the 1.0 litre turbo model, and this is the version I tested recently. It delivers nippy performance – top speed is 124 mph, the 0-60 mph time is 11.4 seconds, and it returns 62.7 mpg combined. The stats are fairly typical of the sector, which includes rivals suich as the Ford Fiesta, Skoda Fabia and Hyundai i20, but the Baleno scores well with generous equipment levels and greater interior space. All models get air-conditioning, sat-nav and Bluetooth, and my test model, in SZ5 trim at £13,999 featured 16-inch alloy wheels, chrome detailing to grille, doorhandles and tailgate, door mirrors with built-in signalling and rear privancy glass.

It also had tyre-pressure monitoring, adaptive cruise control, keyless entry with push-button-start, a gear-shift indicator, and DAB radio. On the road, the three-cylinder 1.0 litre turbocharged engine has 110 hp, so it offers decent response and gives the car a nimble feel without having to work it hard. Baleno is a well-balanced car, displaying plenty of grip and composure, and while the suspension set-up is a little softer than some, it gives excellent comfort without compromising the handling. The Baleno’s elegant exterior has a more sleek look than most rivals and the cabin is well-designed, with a simple, straightforward dashboard layout. The infotainment unit is set high up to be seen and operated easily. Occupant space is outstanding by class standards both front and rear, and the boot is big, 320 litres with the rear seats in use. The Baleno is a welcome addition to the family hatchback sector. Though not the cheapest, it does offer more standard equipment than most rivals and more useable space, and has the bonus of Suzuki’s fine record for reliability.

AUDI SQ7 ‘FASTEST DIESEL’ Audi says its new SQ7 TDI is the fastest diesel available in the UK. Offering 430hp, the 4.0 litre 8-cylinder engine delivers a 0-60 mph time of just 4.9 seconds and a top speed of 155 mph. It costs £70,970. Standard specification includes S-specific interior and exterior details, virtual cockpit, adaptive S air suspension, active sound exhaust system, rear view camera and Valcona leather upholstery with S embossing and a driving dynamics sports pack featuring quattro with sports differential, all-wheel steering and electromechanical active roll stabilization. This is the first S version of the Q7 luxury SUV and Audi says it offers “pulling power which is unparallelled in this class.” The model features a new 48-volt electrical subsystem which is not dependent upon exhaust flow like conventional turbochargers, and brings its force to bear on engine in less than 250 milliseconds. “Its benefit is palpable from the second the accelerator pedal is depressed,” says Audi. “Whenever the exhaust gases provide sufficient energy two sequentially activated ‘conventional’ turbochargers take over, all-the-while accompanied by a compelling V8 bellow from the active sound exhaust system.”

Options available for the new SQ7 TDI are include alloy wheels of up to 22 inches in diameter, Matrix LED headlamps capable of diverting their beam around oncoming and leading traffic, and two ‘3D’ surround sound systems from Bose and Bang & Olufsen, the latter offering up to 1,920 watts. The is also a range of 24 optional driver assistance systems including adaptive cruise control with traffic jam assist - it relieves the driver in slow-moving traffic on wellsurfaced roads with clearly defined markings by taking over the steering in many situations.

Volkswagen has revised its Up!city car, giving it a sharp new look, enhanced interior, extra equipment and the option of a new 1.0 litre turbo-charged petrol engine. It is priced from £8,995. A broader range of exterior colours, decals and roof colours and a large number of interior personalisation options, mean today’s up! can be carefully tailored to a buyer’s precise requirements, says VW. The four-seat Volkswagen’s exterior changes focus on the front and rear of the car, which is offered in either three or five-door configuration. The front has a new bumper, revised radiator grille and bonnet to give the car a purposeful stance. The angular door mirrors and rear bumper has also been redesigned. All up! models now include Volkswagen’s Composition media system, electric front windows and remote central locking. The up! also benefits from new seat cloth options, available in seven different colours, while a new USB port adds connectivity. There is now the option to specify BlueMotion Technology engines which save fuel and cut emissions. The engine line-up comprises two petrol engines that offer three different power outputs. A naturally aspirated three-cylinder 12-valve petrol engine is available with an output of 60 or 75 hp, or for the first time in an up! there’s the option of a turbocharged petrol powerplant, a new threecylinder 1.0-litre TSI engine that has an output of 90 hp. The lower output engines are offered with a five-speed manual, or ASG automatic gearbox, depending on trim level. The new version comes with a manual five-speed gearbox. Economy and emissions range from 60.1 mpg combined to 68.9 mpg combined and 96 g/km to 108 g/km depending on engine and gearbox choice.

SILVER WHEELS Vogue for the automotive industry We caught up with founder and owner, ‘Marcus Beck’ to find out what all the fuss is about ‘Silver Wheels’ (The rave reviewed alloy refurbishment business, based in Ferndown). So how did you get into the alloy wheel refurbishment business? I worked for 18 years at an internationally renowned spray gun manufacturer, where I learnt to build, test and spray all types of spray equipment. I was fortunate to work in several different areas of the business through the years, culminating in me being responsible for sales through our distribution network. I spent a long time visiting many different businesses and helped them to solve application problems, or design new spray installations. Some of the more unusual requests included: spaying live chickens with a preventative pest control, a request to spray oil rig legs whilst in situ in the North Sea and finally – applying a protective coating to oil cooling fins for the Euro fighter. Unfortunately, this roll involved a lot of travelling and time away from home. So after 10 years I felt it was time for a change.

In the time spent in my aforementioned roll, I had worked with all of the main alloy wheel refurbishers across the UK and I was aware that there wasn’t a local company that was offering wheel refurbishment using the same thorough process as the main automotive manufacturers. So with a lot of help supplied by a number of friends I have worked with, Silver Wheels was born. Tell us about your unique process: what are the different steps? 3 keys parts: firstly we use the EXACT same paint process as the main manufacturers. We do not offer any form of spot repair; we only offer full refurbishment of your wheels. Secondly, Silver Wheels completes this work in a timescale that suits our customers. So we offer a same day service for all standard wheel refurbishments and a 2-day service for full diamond cut work. Thirdly, and most importantly, we offer a quality finish. We are passionate about cars and understand why people come to us. We endeavor to provide a better result on your wheels, than when they were first manufactured and we believe that we achieve that every time.

BEFORE

How long does it take? As standard, we offer a same day service for wheels that have been finished in single colour and at no extra cost to our customers. For diamond cut wheels we offer full refurbishment on a 2-day turn around, which we know cannot be matched. For diamond cut lite (where the wheel has very light damage) we can offer a same day service. What’s ‘on trend’ for alloys at the moment? Colour change is much more commonplace and whilst high gloss black is still very popular, anthracites and smoked chromes are definitely in vogue. For the more adventurous we offer candy colours, flip paints and even our own unique rainbow finish, where you can see the 7 colours of the spectrum in your wheel! I’ve noticed a lot of people are customizing their brake calipers, is this something you can do? It is something that we have offered since we opened, but only for calipers that had been removed from the vehicle. Recently we have been able to offer this service for calipers that are still attached to the car. This service usually takes 2 days to complete, but the end results are incredible. Left & below: This Mercedes C63 s had the wheels returned to factory specification. A definite limited edition.

Above & right: This Aston Martin DB9 elected to have his wheels re diamond cut but with a colour change on the inserts to high gloss black

You also offer a ‘Diamond Cut’ service – could you tell us a little more about that? Automotive manufacturers tried to design a wheel that could hide brake dust. They knew that a darker colour would work best, but felt that customers still preferred the aesthetics of silver faced wheels. The solution was a black colour wheel that had the front faces of the spokes, machined and polished: achieved by a process known as ‘Diamond Cutting’. Since then the design of calipers has steadily improved, to the point that there is a lot less residue produced, so in theory removing the need for diamond cut wheels but the finished result looks so good that they are produced in even greater quantities and different styles to help give cars fully individualised look. What types of alloys are eligible for a Diamond Cut service? Only wheels that have been originally been manufactured as diamond cut wheel. Other wheels will have too many rounded edges for us to be able to provide the sharp contours that are needed. Why is Silver Wheels THE go to place for repairing and refurbishing alloys? We are passionate about cars and moreover, about the people that drive them. When someone comes to us looking for repair or customization, we want to provide a personal service that allows customers to request tweaks and the kind of individualisation that only we can deliver. By listening to each person carefully beforehand, we understand exactly what it is that they are looking for. At the end of the day you are spending your hard earned money with us, success is you walking away feeling like your car has been transformed and bearing an enormous ear-to-ear grin.

With such a dirty job at hand, how do you keep your workshop so spotless? We have one heck of a team, marshalled by our production manager ‘Nick’. Our team of 7, all bring their own qualities and attributes. Success is combining all of those to get the best from each person. Coupled with that, a tidy and clean workshop reduces the chance of any contaminant affecting the lovely clean finish of your wheels. What’s your favourite job/best car you’ve ever worked on to date? So hard to answer this one….. We have loved the super cars: Astons, Maserattis, Lambos, Ferraris the list goes on and on. The Audi R8, V10 has caught our eyes and ears on more than one occasion. I recall a bright orange Lamborghini Hurricane. The customer travelled all the way from Guildford because he had been told we were the best – no pressure. The customer was soon to join the Fast & Furious rally and wanted an individual look for his wheels. He opted for a matte black finish with a silver colour on the front face of the spokes. I was really unsure about this choice, to the point where the customer finally decided to give me free reign. I was told to paint one wheel in the style of my choosing and to text him the finished result; if he liked it then he would have us complete the remaining wheels. I designed a gloss black finish, with gold on the front face of the spokes. All designed to match the Lambo center cap colours. Luckily for me he loved it.

Success is you walking away feeling like your car has been transformed and bearing an enormous ear-to-ear grin. If you could own any car, what would it be? I think I would get into too much mischief if I had the Audi RS6 I covert, so perhaps I should choose an MG-TF for some happy countryside motoring. Have you got any plans for new products and or changes for Silver Wheels in the future? We are constantly expanding and improving our processes. We have had an extra oven installed this year along with a second shot blaster, so that we can cope with the extra volume. Long term, I a suspect bigger premises will be required, but I have a little time before that becomes a major drive – a few weeks perhaps? Well there you have it, 12 reasons why you should get in your car and drive to their workshop – right now! We loved catching up with Marcus and his team. Beyond their professionalism, their charm and overall friendliness was unlike any other car related business we have met with before.

Westover Beauty Bournemouth’s Premier Beauty Salon is in a perfect location, situated in Westover Road next to the Premier Inn. Before opening for business in 2013, substantial investment was put to work completely refurbishing the premises to create a completely unique “boutique style” Beauty Salon offering the very best in equipment and quality of fitment. The ethos of the business model was to “Redefine the Art of Beauty Therapy” through quality of treatments, attention to detail and customer service. This has been a very successful strategy that has been the mainstay of the business during the last three years. Westover Beauty has also launched a unique range of marketing strategies during the last three years including “Workers of Bournemouth Membership Scheme” which offers all clients who work within Bournemouth a 20% on all beauty treatments, the “VIP Membership Club” which offers a discount to members on treatments and retail purchases for an annual membership payment and “Deals of the Day” which offers a very limited number of a variety of treatments at very special prices for those quick off the mark. The combination of striving to always offer the very best in quality of service and treatments combined with innovative marketing has been the driver of the salons success and continuing rapid growth. The salons client base, now comprising of many thousand customers is wide and varied due to its prime location in the heart of Bournemouth. Many of our clients are regular visitors to Bournemouth for business or pleasure and call in for their treatments when they are in town and some work in the town using us for their treatments whilst also benefiting from the” Workers of

Bournemouth Discount Scheme”. Others are just on holiday visiting the town from overseas or other parts of the UK, whilst of course many are local customers from Bournemouth and the surrounding areas who have made us their salon of choice for their regular beauty treatments. Currently Westover Beauty is in the process of launching a new online shop which will be offering a wide range of beauty treatment and relaxation packages making the perfect gift for the special person in your life whilst also making preparations for a training centre which will open early 2017. The Westover Beauty Brand continues to grow and the current owners have plans ahead to promote the business further. The current success has only been achieved by a very high level of input from the existing management and their time is now starting to get stretched to its limit with the current level of tasks in hand. In order to maintain a continuing high level of service and attention to detail the Bournemouth branch intends to appoint an owner operator who can devote all their time to promoting the business from the Bournemouth Salon whilst the current owners concentrate on growing the new areas of the business.

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

FIT SKIN

Just as it is super important to maintain a strong, healthy, fit and flexible body, so too it’s imperative for your skin to enjoy optimum fitness. Ensure it does, and you can enjoy radiant, clear and younger, fresher looking skin always. Here are some simple daily and weekly tips to get your glow on.

Cut Down On Smoking. Actually, give it up altogether. Nothing spoils your skin faster than cigarettes, which are loaded with poisons, toxins, nicotine and chemicals. Each inhalation will flush these nasty’s right through your blood stream, and deliver them directly to your skin cells and surrounding tissues, eroding collagen and elastin, which makes skin weak and causes it to sag. They also constrict a blood vessel, which means skin cells are starved of oxygen, and your complexion quickly takes on a dull, grey and fatigued appearance. Alcohol. More than two alcoholic beverages a day can put a strain on your liver, which means that lymphatic drainage and toxin removal is compromised, both of which will negatively affect the clarity and radiance of your skin. Choose your alcoholic beverage wisely, too. Red wine is a good choice, as it’s got plenty of antioxidants to help build skin cell strength. Just remember – no more than two glasses each day! Caffeine. As much as we all love a great cup of coffee or tea, it’s best to stick to one a day, maximum. It can be dehydrating to skin, not to mention make you anxious, thanks to the stimulating nature of caffeine. For each cup of coffee or tea, drink three glasses of filtered water. Your skin will thank you for it.

Sleep. It’s not called beauty sleep for nothing. Eight hours sleep a night is essential for skin to really get the most of its nightly rest and repair functions. You’ll wake up less puffy and with a more clarified complexion. Blueberries are said to be the greatest food source for antioxidants – they offer anti-aging prevention that’s too good not to try.

Every Day … Cleanse morning and night. Never let this slip by. Cleanse twice at night – once for make-up and the second time to remove the day’s debris and any pollution or nasty’s that could be lodged on the skin’s surface. In the morning, apply a thick layer of your favourite cleanser and leave it on for ten minutes. Most cleansers contain active ingredients, so it’s a nice way to multi-task, using it as a mask. Then simply wash it off in the shower. You’ll really notice the pep up it provides to your skin. Give yourself a facial massage. When applying your daily or nightly moisturiser, take five to ten minutes to gently, but firmly, massage the cream into your skin. The massaging action will help with lymphatic drainage in the facial areas (read: less puffiness and fewer breakouts), and it will improve blood flow to the cells, which in turn will boost luminosity to the skin.

Exercise. At least three to four cardiovascular workouts of around 30 – 45 minutes each week are essential for healthy functioning of your heart and lungs, and for a healthy glow to your skin,

Use an eye cream. The skin around your eyes is finer than that on the rest of your face and as such can only absorb so much product. Using a thicker, inappropriate moisturiser can cause millia (the tiny white bumps that appear under the skin). Find an eye cream that suits you and gently pad it around the orbital area twice daily as part of your skin care regime.

Water. Self-explanatory, really. Drinking at least three litres of water daily will help flush toxins from

constant assault from UV rays, which break down collagen and elastin

Two to three times a week Exfoliate. Sloughing away that dead layer of skin cells and built up debris on the skin’s surface will better enable absorption of the anti-ageing and skin nurturing ingredients in your treatment serums and moisture creams. Be sure to choose a gentle formula that won’t damage skin with its buffing action. Smooth, rounded spheres are a great choice, and remember, you don’t need to scrub – simply gently massage. The beads will do the scrubbing work for you. Apply a face mask. No matter what your skin type – normal, oily- combination or dry – a weekly face mask will help hydrate, normalise and keep your complexion looking its most radiant. Take half an hour to relax and let your mask work, then rinse away well using a warm, damp facial towel, before applying your day or night cream.

Every month Book in for a professional facial. Aside from the indulgent pampering that you know you deserve, your beauty therapist will be able to deliver deeper and more effective treatments than you can at home. Consider professional deep exfoliation. Treatments such as a Skin Peel, or Microdermabrasion, can deliver intense exfoliation in your lunch hour. They are not painful, there is no down time and you can go straight back to work afterwards. Skin takes on a clear, healthy, luminous glow and any treatment products you apply afterwards will be better absorbed and have a great effect! And don’t forget … everything you eat or drink will have an effect on the way your skin looks – so enjoy and indulgence every now and then, but for the most part, try to follow and maintain a healthy, well balanced diet that includes plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables and lots of water!

REVIEWED

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

SARAH ALI CHOUDHURY: PASSION MAKES PERFECT The Tale of A Rising Star We’ve had our fair share of tasty food reviews at House, but this was a first. We had been invited down to Purewell Electric’s show kitchen, to enjoy a ‘how to’ demonstration, where the very talented ‘Sarah Ali Choudhury’ (remember that name folks!) taught us the ins and outs of Indian Cuisine. The space itself is stunning. A state of the art show kitchen complete with the latest kitchen tech: induction hob, self-cleaning ovens, and glossy worktops. Not to mention the fully stocked cupboards, packed with all the utensils one could ever wish for. The kitchen is set up almost like a theatre, with tiered seats and all lights pointing at the main event – the kitchen. As we wandered in, Sarah, our demonstration chef for the day, welcomed us with open arms and talked us through our afternoon agenda. After getting cozy in the front row, we began our journey into the heart of Indian cookery. As Sarah began expertly slicing and dicing the medley of garlic, onions and ginger, we couldn’t help but pry as to what brought her to cooking. Besides an endless passion, it was actually her family that influenced her decision to swap the clipboard for an apron. As a young girl she helped out at her parents restaurant, little jobs here and there for pocket money – but by the age of 19, she had conquered the art of hospitality and was managing her parents restaurant full time. Not fully comprehending her achievement at the time, she decided to reroute her career path and sought to make a living in luxury property.

168

Whilst she did enjoy some very fruitful years in this industry, the allure no longer pulled as it did before. It was time to go back to her roots and utilise her years of experience in the restaurant trade, her passion for authentic food has led her to a totally new venture. Only this time she wouldn’t be frontof-house, or solely a proprietor: she would be the master and creator – the chef. I’ll hold this story

here for a moment as we continue through our cooking demonstration… Now for the spices: an aromatic blend of traditional herbs and ground flavors went in to the sizzling pan one by one. The perfumed steam that arose was to die for. With my eyes closed suddenly I’m transported to a market in South Asia, the hustle and bustle, the tradition, it’s all so beautiful and culturally rich (aaaaaand back in the room). Next up are the prepared lamb pieces and tomato paste. As they enter the mix the smell intensifies and I am hypnotized once more. I can easily see why Sarah has high ambitions for her future. Though confident, Sarah is also a very grounded person. In fact I was rather carried away with her unrelenting motivation. I imagine she could inspire almost anyone to go forth and fulfill his or her hopes and dreams. In addition to the lamb curry, Sarah began creating a tasty vegetarian alternative: a sweet and spicy butternut squash dish. Perfectly blended with a minimal amount of spices, she created a truly incredible dish, with minimal effort. Hence the name ‘Easy Curry’. Whilst it takes some serious skill to make a meat dish of restaurant standard, it takes true talent to bring a simple vegetable dish to life. When we got to try this dish it didn’t disappoint: it was soft without being squishy and the spices added a totally new dimension of flavour. As we continued watching and listening to the demonstration, we got to find out about another venture on the cards. The issue with recreating authentic Indian food is heavily due to the spices used. When you dine out at a local restaurant, or enjoy your favourite takeaway, whilst they maybe delicious in their own right, these dishes are deliberately tailored to the European pallet. Odd, when you think about it, as

When you book me for a cookery class it isn’t just a class about cooking an Indian dish, it’s a whole authentic Indian experience! so many of us yearn for authenticity in almost every aspect of our lives. Sarah wants to help home-cooks pack more original Asian flavour into their food, by creating a fresh, new line, of easy-to-use seasonings. The brand is ‘Easy Curry’ and she is currently in negotiations with some major retailers, we hope to be seeing it on our supermarket shelves very soon! Sarah can even be booked as a private chef, at an upcoming event you might have, or even just a special evening in with friends. It makes for a really exciting experience for you and your guests and takes away the hassle of cooking. Don’t miss out on Sarah’s next cooking event at Purewell on the 31st August 6-8pm, tickets are £15 available now from Eventbrite. Sarah would like to give a special thank you to Andrew Plant for his fantastic work photographing her food, for more information about his work visit www.andrewplantphotography.com By Charlotte Williams Contact Sarah Ali Choudhury at Easy Curry 07967 409191 | www.sarahalieasycurry.com

FOOD & DRINK

REVIEWED

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

MONTY’S BURGER LOUNGE When life gives your burgers – EAT THEM! Aaah Monty’s Burger Lounge, the second in line to the Monty name. After years on success at their primary restaurant in Pokesdown, the team at Monty’s decided to open up a second meat-loving joint in Bournemouth’s hustling and bustling town center. Their dedication to top-notch burgers hasn’t gone un-noticed; in fact most locals would consider it THE place to go for a sumptuous patty, not to mention all of the other delicious goodies they serve. Their food philosophy is rather charming if not somewhat quirky. A philosophy that says, “hey, we do things a little differently around here, and we think you’re going to like it”. To be more precise: “to enjoy every burger we munch and every glass we wash – because we believe life is for living”. We were invited to review their new site, to get the dish on what’s hot and here’s how that went… As we peeped through the almost pure glass shop front our excitement grew. I could see glimpses of vintage artefacts, wooden benches and what appeared to be a cot mobile, hanging from the ceiling. On we went. As I got closer it was even more enchanting than I had imagined. I discovered that the sweeping curved wall had been wallpapered in

vintage magazines – Ideal eye-wandering reading material, for slowing lunch conversation. The ‘cot mobile’ was actually a Bournemouth seaside mural, entirely hand made, with textile seagulls, sailing boats and all things beach related, hanging as ornaments. The wooden benches I mentioned were just that – rustic and ideal for group dining. After our brief meander, we sat down to peruse the menu and what a menu it was. Nothing was ordinary, definitely my kind of place (oh how mother always said I couldn’t just pick a ‘normal meal’). They offer burgers of all kinds and they have kindly categorised them into three main sections: beef, chicken and veggie. Each category has a series of delicious flavour combinations – all I can say is good luck picking because they all looked incredible. Before any final decisions could be made on food, we decided to sample some of their adequately named ‘Freak Shakes’. For those of you that don’t know, these so called ‘Freak Shakes’ are a growing trend in and around major cities. Originally created in Australia (or so I’m told), this is no ordinary milkshake. The idea is to layer as many sugary treats as you possibly can, in and around a trendy glass (most popular seems to be the

mason jar). Then once you’ve hit the vessels capacity, keep going! The finished product: a monstrous milkshake that deliberately overflows. I opted for Monty’s ‘Somewhere After Eight’ shake: a sumptuous blend of After Eights, Matchsticks minty chocolate sticks, mint-choc ice cream, chocolate sauce and god knows what else. All perfectly blended beneath layers and layers of whipped cream, oh and more chocolate. Whilst I’m fairly sure I had self-induced myself into a sugar fuel coma, I couldn’t have been happier! After another peek at the menu, just to confirm my choice, I ordered their signature ‘Nice and Spicy’ burger. A 6oz beef patty with butchers cured smoked bacon, gooey cheese and homemade chilli chutney. I’m going to say something kind of bold here, oh to hell with it… it was, THE BEST BURGER I have ever had. New levels of burger heaven we’re met. The patty itself is really something special: cooked medium-rare, it makes for a very moreish texture and the fact that the patties are all hand-crafted on the premises daily, well that’s just the cheese on top. The homemade chilli chutney was divine; packed with lashings of fresh chillies (seeds and all) it really packed a punch – Spicy by name and most definitely spicy by flavour. I love spicy food when the heat is clearly present but it only makes the dish more special, as opposed to numbing ones taste buds beyond repair. Every burger joint’s favourite friend, the ‘brioche bun’ was there too, only this one was perfect - Less flaky and minus that off-putting ‘sat on’ look. It held all of the ingredients together so well, whilst retaining the subtle sweetness that brioche has. Let’s not forget their rather quirky side dishes, particularly their sweet potato fries, “Did you just ask, If I want to add bacon and maple syrup?” I said. Don’t be too quick to judge folks , the contrast between the salty pork and the distinct sweetness of the syrup made for a moreish combination that I was unable to put down. Needless to say I am highly recommending this place. Their ethos to incredible food, their endearing quirkiness and their beyond crazy milkshakes are all just small parts of there amazing story – go for yourself and find out more!
