LESTER BRUNT JOIN FORCES WITH VANDELLI ART FOR THE POPPY APPEAL

NEWS

Lester Brunt Wealth Management from Wimborne, Dorset, has joined forces with Vandelli Art to raise funds for The Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal.

NAME THAT BAR Charminster is now an amazing place to spend time relaxing, and is a brilliant night out. The old Peppinos has a new owner and is having a re vamp and the new owners want YOU to come up with a new name!

The latest news storys in your area.

Artist Natasha J Clarke has created, ‘The Lips,’ an acrylic Poppy 900 x 900cm, which symbolises the telling generations to come of the sacrifices the armed forces have made through the decades.

WINKWORTH WELCOME A NEW MEMBER OF STAFF Winkworth in Southbourne would like to welcome James Yorke to their expanding team of staff. James is new to estate agency, but has a proven track record of excellent customer service. James has always lived in Southbourne and so knows the area very well and he looks forward to the challenge of learning the trade. Fergus Naylor who manages the Southbourne office commented, “We are so pleased to have James join us at the Southbourne office. We wish him every success in the company and we are sure that he will develop all the skills needed to become an excellent estate agent.”

Voting is free via the website at www.name-our-bar.co.uk and there will be prizes for the winners. Whether it’s cocktails with the girls, lunch with the kids or coffee with the in-laws, the new all day coffee lounge in Charminster aims to appeal to everyone.

All of the profits made from this one of a kind art work will go to the Royal British Legion. The BID so far stands at £300 and offers are welcome via evc@vandelli.co.uk. Said Michael Lester from Lester Brunt, “We officially launched our new offices in Wimborne a few weeks ago, so what better way than to support the Armed Forces and our local Royal British Legion than an association to the Poppy Appeal, and by displaying the artwork for all to see in our window. Everyone is more than welcome to come into the offices in West Borough, Wimborne, from Monday to Friday during November to view this stunning work and if they so wish to make an offer.” Said, artist Natasha J Clarke, “My thanks to Lester Brunt Wealth Management for displaying my Art in their Wimborne

office, I want to raise funds for The Royal British legion and felt this was a suitable piece as it reminds me of the importance of always telling the generations to come about the sacrifices made by the armed forces and volunteers through the ages and wars. We will remember them through all mediums but through the voices of grandfathers and grandmothers, fathers, mothers to the children this is important. I am fortunate that my grandfather and grandmother have passed on to me their stories and experiences of their war and how important it is to tell all the aspects of what war means. Thank you for taking the time to view my work and your bid. Email your bid to evc@vandelii.co.uk”

WESTBOURNE BUSINESSES UNITE FOR CHRISTMAS Christmas in Westbourne this year promises to be a memorable one! The Westbourne Business Association (WBA) hosted the official Christmas Launch event in The Forge at The Libertine in the heart of Westbourne to discuss Christmas plans, drink mulled wine, and taste and trial each other’s wares. In attendance were the owners/ managers of shops, restaurants and offices of the Westbourne community as well as Councillors of Bournemouth, the local press, the Coastal BID team, and the Westbourne Christmas PR and events team. COOK of Westbourne supplied delicious Christmas cake and The Libertine supplied mulled wine, pizza and steak for all to enjoy and many discussed offers and activities that will be exclusive to Westbourne over the month of December. Cllr John Beesley, Leader of Bournemouth Borough Council and representative of the Westbourne & West Cliff ward says “Lia Martin (Chairman of the WBA) and her team set out their ambitious and exciting plans for the Christmas campaign in Westbourne with a programme of events and promotions starting at the end of November. There was no doubt that all those who attended were there to take part fully in the plans and really put Westbourne on the map as the place to visit in the run up to the festive period.”

HEAD CHEF TAKES ISABEL’S TO THE NEXT LEVEL Forty years marks a ruby anniversary but it is also an appropriate comparison in terms of longevity when it comes to Isabel’s Restaurant - the jewel in the crown of the Ashley Cross dining scene. This Michelin recommended fine French and English eatery, with its intimate booths providing the backdrop to many celebratory meals, has been nurtured by Maggie and Luciano Trisconi for close to four decades. Now they have handed on this legacy to a trusted and worthy successor; their head chef Justin Castle and his family. Justin joined Isabel’s more than 20 years ago after training at a prestigious establishment in Juan les Pins, south eastern France but is Dorset born. His delight and enthusiasm at heading up the restaurant where he has worked his way up from a young commis chef to Chef/ Patron is both apparent and abundant.

“I’m passionate about the food I produce and Luciano has taught me many valuable lessons about the highest standards of cuisine and service. Now I’ve achieved my dream in being able to take Isabel’s to the next level. I’m excited about keeping everything that customers already love whilst having the opportunity to put my own slant on things. Regular customers need have no fear though - my values will never move far from those Luciano has instilled in me.” The new ownership has brought about one immediate and striking change however. For the first time ever, Isabel’s will be opening its doors for lunch on Thursdays - Sundays to include a traditional Sunday roast. Diners can enjoy a variety of roast options, including rib of beef carved at the table. There is a competitively priced lunch menu with two courses to £21.95 or three for £25.95.

CHARITY SURVIVORS SWAP LIFE’S LUXURIES FOR BARE BASICS A special introductory offer during November enables four diners to eat for the price of three with advance booking. In addition, a number of new positions have been created at the restaurant and Justin is welcoming Antonio Goncalves on board as his newly appointed restaurant manager. Antonio joins Isabel’s from The Seaside Boarding House, an upmarket Dorset boutique B&B set up by a former managing director and founder of the Groucho club. For reservations please call 01202 747885. www.isabelsrestaurant.co.uk

TAYLOR WIMPEY’S COAST MOVES INTO THE PREMIER LEAGUE AS BOURNEMOUTH CHAIRMAN MAKES IT HIS HOME! It can be pretty stressful being chairman of a Premier League football club – as AFC Bournemouth’s Jeff Mostyn knows only too well. The Mancunian businessman has been involved with the Cherries for the past 10 years, playing a key role in their fairytale journey to football’s top flight – but the club’s rise to the Premier League at the end of last season has come with more than its fair share of ups and downs along the way. So, finding a peaceful retreat in his adopted town to return to after the trials and tribulations of match day has been on Jeff’s mind for a while – and he’s found the perfect place at Taylor Wimpey’s Coast development, which occupies an iconic clifftop location on Bournemouth’s skyline. Jeff says: “As chairman of the football club, I felt at some stage I would like to become a member of the local community, as my wife Rose and I currently live outside Bournemouth,

so we started looking at a number of developments in the town. “We didn’t have to think too long before committing ourselves to an apartment at Coast. The development occupies the most magnificent location and once we’d gone on the roof area and seen the amazing view of the coastline we felt there was probably no better place in Bournemouth to buy a home.” Coast forms part of the wider regeneration of the surrounding area in Bournemouth and this was also a significant attraction for Jeff. Jeff and Rose are looking forward to spending the weekends at their new apartment when it’s completed, hopefully in about 12 months’ time. They’ve chosen an Ocean View apartment which boasts a stunning open-plan kitchen/living/dining room with a private balcony and full-height windows providing uninterrupted views of the sea.

There’s a fantastic selection of apartments currently available at Coast, including one-bedroom holiday lets from £228,000 plus two-bedroom apartments from £295,000. Offering picturesque views of Bournemouth’s award-winning beach, Coast is sure to provide the very best of seaside living. To find out more about securing their perfect coastal retreat at Coast, property-seekers can visit the Sales Information Centre, located at 6-10 Priory Road, Bournemouth, BH2 5DL, and open Thursday to Monday from 10am to 5pm (Mondays from 1pm to 5pm). Property-seekers can call the Sales Executive on 01202 048155 to book a viewing appointment. Information about Taylor Wimpey developments across the region is available by visiting www.taylorwimpey. co.uk or calling 01962 676700.

Survivors of the Castaway Challenge, organised by Dorset charity Diverse Abilities and sponsored by Cre8tive Wisdom, returned to their home comforts after spending five days surviving and living off the land. The event saw five men and two women stranded at a secret location on the south coast, in aid of the disability charity, raising £5,000, which will make a huge difference to children and adults that Diverse Abilities supports. The challenge began with a bonding night kindly supported by The Sandbanks Hotel. The group of castaways then headed to the ‘secret beach location’ the following day on boats, kindly sponsored and supplied by Powerboat Training UK and Poole Boat Hire. The castaways swapped life’s luxuries for bare basics and were occupied from dusk until dawn with a variety of fun activities and challenges, including learning valuable survival techniques, building a natural shelter, fire lighting techniques, sea life-raft survival skills training, navigating by the stars, water purification, sea fishing and much more. To find out more regarding Diverse Abilities please visit www.diverseabilities.org.uk or call 01202 718266.

ASK THE ARCHITECT

KATIE BROAD FROM RINGWOOD ASKS…

ASK THE EXPERT...

THINKING OF AN EXTENSION?

“I want to extend my home; do I need planning permission and what is permitted development?” Architect Peter Robinson from Western Design Architects explains…

Mark Cook of MC Plan & Site Services, explains the role of an

Permitted Development

Approved Inspector.

Planning permission will be required for most major additions and alterations to your home. However, there are a number of permitted development rights that allow certain works to be undertaken without the need for a formal planning application. These include, within certain parameters, rear and side extensions, porches, sheds and loft conversions as well as many more minor works. Some two storey extensions or single storey extensions as large as 8m deep could fall under permitted development, but would require the implementation of the neighbour consultation scheme and the notification of the Local Planning Authority. If objections are raised there is a chance your proposal may not be allowed.

All building work is subject to the Building Regulations which are applicable in England & Wales and designed to set a minimum standard for design and construction in respect of the health and safety of the building’s users. The regulations stipulate guidelines to ensure efficient use of energy and to provide facilities which provide safe access for people to buildings, including those with disabilities. The Building Regulations are designed to promote:

Restrictions • Building Standards – to include fire safety, suitable drainage, adequate ventilation, electrical safety and sound insulation. • Energy Efficiency – Since 2006 the regulations have included energy conservation with the aim of reducing the amount of carbon in the atmosphere. • Access to Buildings – to provide safe access to buildings for all people including those with disabilities as well as aiming to reduce physical hazards within the building itself. MC Plan and Site Services Ltd is an award winning independent Corporate Approved Inspector. They are fully licensed and regulated by the Construction Industry Council (“CIC”) to carry out building control throughout England and Wales. MC Plan and Site Services work for home owners, managing agents, developers, contractors, housing associations, surveyors, architects and many other sectors within the property and construction

Permitted development rights can be restricted in certain areas such as, national parks, areas of outstanding natural beauty, conservation areas or if your property is listed. They can also be removed completely through an Article 4 direction. You should have been made aware of these restrictions when purchasing your property but if you are unsure it is worth contacting your local council to advise of any restrictions that may apply to you. What can be done without planning permission will vary depending on the type and context of the property, particularly with regard to extending. For example detached or terraced houses will have different size limits and the distance from the boundary and whether it fronts a highway will also have an affect on what can be done. Generally if the proposals could have an impact on the public realm then planning permission will need to be sought.

Other Approvals Other statutory approvals such as Listed building Consent (if the works affect a listed building or a structure within the curtilage of a listed building) and Building regulations approval may still be required depending on the nature of the work.

industry. They operate right across the southern region to include London, Hampshire, Wiltshire, Devon, Somerset, Surrey and Sussex.

Find Out More The Government Planning Portal website has some useful tools and interactive guides. As permitted development can be complex we recommend contacting an Architect belonging to the RIBA to discuss your specific requirements. To find out more, please call us to arrange a no obligation meeting where we can advise you on how to best proceed with your project.

GREEN ECLIPSE

GREEN VISION

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.

ASK THE EXPERT... Monty isn’t just a dapper tweed-wearing handsome Fox; he is also a wealth of knowledge when it comes to the world of property. He is on hand to dispense hints and tips on house sales and property rentals to would-be smart Foxes and Vixens in his fortnightly House Column.

AVOID THE HEADACHE OF MOVING PART 4... Moving home can be a daunting prospect... Moving home consists of packing and transporting often thousands

This issue, James from Ensbury Park asks, “Is the trend towards openplan living here to stay?”

of different objects, each of different value, shape and size, from one location to another, or into and then out of store. Given the stress of selling, buying and renting homes, it is no wonder that people often give little time to thinking exactly what will or will not be moved to

Dear James,

their new home. Being a well travelled fox, I’ve been to many a country where openplan living is certainly the norm, however, it is a relatively recent phenomenon in the UK by comparison. It is true; many newly built houses incorporate the idea of open-plan living, where living room, dining and kitchen appear to flow into one-another, in their design. This can prove to be very appealing to the modern way of family life, where all members of the family can be together whilst getting on with their tasks individually. In older period properties, where the design favoured your typical boxed-room lay-out, developers and home-owners have taken to creating the open-plan feel by removing walls or creating the illusion of space by widening doorways or removing doors completely. In some cases, this can prove to be a very costly project but does instantly modernise an older property. It is interesting that you ask if this is a trend that is here to stay, we here at Foxes Sales & Lettings certainly see a fondness towards this style of living and the lightness and feeling of open space it creates. However, we are also aware of some of the reported pit-falls of this lay-out - by removing the walls, you remove an element of soundproofing – no more private conversations or television viewing. And whilst we think the trend is definitely not going anywhere soon, there are home-buyers who are looking for the exact opposite of open-plan lay-outs, opting for the privacy and cosiness that sectioned-living affords.

Below you will find a few tips to help you prepare and plan for a smooth and efficient move to your new home.

Maps and Plans Please give the driver clear directions to your new home and a street map if possible (although most professional firms should provide their drivers with a satellite navigation system plus a street map for the final destination, sometimes, especially if your new property is a new build, the postcode for the property and the directions on the navigation system/street map, do not always align, which can end up with the driver getting lost!). Also, draw a floor plan of your new home and give it to the foreman so that everything can be put in the correct room. Colour coded labels can also help identify the correct location for items and save time. However, be careful where you put the sticky labels if you put them on the highly polished surfaces of some furniture they can leave marks.

Children and Pets Older children may enjoy the excitement of the move and should be included as much as possible, both during the planning and the move itself, to help them understand the reasons for moving and reduce homesickness.

In the end, with homes, there is no one size fits all – the trick is to ask yourself, ‘Can I imagine myself living here?’ – it may be the thing you thought you were looking for is quite different to what you end up moving into – or what you like at one stage of your life evolves as you do – keep your options open! Every issue you’ll find that Monty has hidden himself on a page of House magazine – if you find Monty you are in with a chance to win a prize! This issue Foxes Sales & Lettings are giving you your very own Monty the fox – email belen.robbins@foxes.co.uk with the page number that you found Monty on to be entered into the draw. Good Luck! Est.1996

You might consider having younger children and pets looked after by a relative or a friend while the move is taking place.

What to do with the cartons and packing materials after the move? Most BAR members will collect up flattened used cartons, provided they are the standard BAR removals boxes. However, boxes such as fruit boxes, appliance boxes, shoe boxes etc. are not so welcome. Used white paper, provided it is kept together in a made up box or bin bag, can be collected as well. We are not refuse collectors, so please do not put your rubbish in the boxes/bags for collection. Cartons left out in damp/wet conditions also cannot be collected as it costs so much for us to dispose of them. So keep everything under cover in a dry place, then phone up your removal company who will send someone out within a few days to collect your cartons and packing materials.

My experience with Churchfield has been amazing, from the viewing to the letting agreement. Special thanks to Anna, who has been really a charm, really fast on those email replies and very patiently answering all my queries.

Churchfield helped us to rent our flat out. I would like to thank Gemma and Anna for making it a stress free experience. I would not hesitate to recommend them and will definitely use them again in the future. A very big thank you.

HOME IMPROVEMENTS

SELLING YOUR HOME? IT’S ALL IN THE DETAIL! Take heed, home sellers - first impressions really count. Here are our tips to prepare your home for a viewing. Exterior appeal Stand outside your home and compare it to your neighbours’ properties. If you do this and it makes you feel slightly mortified, it’s likely that you’ve already failed to impress your potential buyers.

Ask yourself: • • • • •

When was the last time I mowed the lawn? Have I ever cleaned those gutters out? Could those window frames use some fresh paint? Don’t those children’s toys have somewhere to be? Can people see my house number behind that embarrassingly overgrown shrub? • Does a surplus of weeds say that I embrace all forms of nature, or that I’m a lazy homeowner who probably hasn’t maintained the rest of the property very well either?

Depersonalise Those gorgeous photographs of your daughter, husband, wife, nephew, best friend, cat and so forth that line the hallway and stairwell? Take them down. All of them. Your buyers don’t want to see the lovely

life you’ve made for yourself in your beautiful home. They want to imagine the lovely life they could make for themselves in their beautiful potential new home. Don’t allow anything to clutter that vision.

Speaking of clutter Get rid of it. If you’ve accumulated a lot of bits and pieces over the years (and you definitely have), now’s the time to either a) throw them out, b) give them to charity or c) find proper, neat places for them in a closet or cupboard.

Pay specific attention to: • Ornaments and knick-knacks • Kitchen tools and appliances that currently live on the counters • Potted plants • Posters on your children’s bedroom walls

Spring clean Clean! We’re not talking about a quick once-over. • Dust the skirting boards (if you don’t know what a skirting board is, yours probably really need dusting)

• Clean the windows (inside and out) and then polish them for extra shine • Dust light fixtures and furniture • Vacuum like there’s no tomorrow • Get rid of cobwebs • Polish taps and mirrors

Let there be light Lots of natural light usually tops the list of things people are looking for in a home. This is great news if you own a home on a barren cliff top with ceilingto-floor glass facing the afternoon sun, but that’s not always on the cards, is it? Fortunately, there are other ways to maximise the light in your house natural or otherwise. • Replace dim light bulbs with higher wattage • In areas of your house that are particularly dark, install some extra light fixtures • Prune any trees or vines that are casting shadows inside the house Phew...plenty to do. But honestly it will be worth it....

Mr and Mrs Garner saved ÂŁ20,751 with Purplebricks*

We have been delighted with the service offered by Purplebricks. They have been proactive from beginning to end, keeping us informed at all times and requesting feedback from prospective purchasers within an hour of a viewing. We could not fault the service given. Hampshire, October 2016

*Source: Purplebricks customer survey of 109 customers who sold with Purplebricks between 19/05/15 - 07/07/2016 claiming average traditional estate agent commission quoted at point of property valuation was 1.8%.

We match properties to 1,000’s of potential buyers and tenants, instantly. Visit our website to get started today www.purplebricks.com


So how does it work? It’s so easy! 1. Book a free valuation, 24/7 Arrange a date and time for one of our experienced Local Property Experts to visit. It will only take a couple of minutes.

2. Your own, dedicated Local Property Expert until your property is sold or let Your Local Property Expert will provide you with a professional valuation and offer advice and expertise, all with no obligation. They will help achieve the highest possible price for you and personally support you throughout the sale. You will receive their direct contact number and email address.

3. Instruct Purplebricks for a fixed fee Instruct to sell for just £849 and save thousands in fees when you let with us! You don’t have to pay anything upfront, including the cost of an EPC (sales only) if you need one. Most customers tell us they enjoy doing their own viewings, but we do offer the flexibility of an accompanied viewings service for those who want us to do that, which costs £300.

4. Review your property advert Your expert will take the photos, create your advert, and it can be live on the leading property portals, including Rightmove and Zoopla, within seconds, available to 10 million buyers or tenants instantly.

Sharon Canning

BURGLARIES ON THE INCREASE I have been amazed at how many friends on my Facebook have been burgled over the last 4-5 weeks. The violation my friends have felt have just been enormous however the loss of personal items such as jewellery have a huge amount of sentimental value and are just not replaceable. In 2015 the Crime Survey for England and Wales (CSEW) found that

Brief market comment – ‘Rental values - Something I always

there were almost 800,000 instances of domestic burglary in the UK

say to my landlord clients is that a rental asking price has to be carefully set. The supply/demand equation of the rental market is liable to change literally from week to week, so the value of any property is all about here and now i.e. it will depend on what other properties have been listed at the same time as yours. If you’re the only 3 bed semi on the market in your area there’s a good chance you can set your price high and get it, but if there are six similar properties all listed in the same week as yours, you’ll need to tweak that asking price to attract a tenant before the others do and save yourself a costly void period’. For an up to the minute rental valuation call us on 01202 298889.

with the majority of perpetrators preying on vulnerable properties with poor levels of security. New research of 2,000 adults looked at how security conscious we really are and the results are quite alarming. I was shocked to discovered that only around 10% of people feel their home and possessions are safe from the prospect of burglary. Nearly a third of people were worried about items with sentimental value such as jewellery being stolen while one in five were more concerned about valuable electrical items like laptops and phones being taken. Winter is peak time for break-ins, with longer nights providing more cover. We are also approaching Christmas and it is a sad fact this will also be a factor. So, what can we do. 1. Don’t post on Facebook if you are going away and leaving the property unattended. 2. Put a nail through a window to seal it against the burglars 3. Get rid of the letterbox on your front door, thieves will use this to look and use a fishing rod to collect keys that may be hanging up nearby. 4. Deadlock all the doors. A credit card is still fairly easy to open a door. 5. Don’t keep keys near a door.

WESTERN AUSTRALIA’S SHIPWRECKED TREASURE Listening to calcified coral cracking underfoot, I can almost hear the fragile cries of lost souls buried metres below me. Nearly four centuries ago, 126 men, women and children were massacred during one of the most blood-thirsty episodes in Australia’s maritime history, and many of their bodies were laid to rest here, on Beacon Island. A local fisherman, Chook, tells me he once spent the night on this “island of angry ghosts”, awaking to the sound of panic-stricken, squawking seabirds. For now, the windswept, barren coral mound is calm, although a fringe of blood-red fish spawn along the shoreline unintentionally nods to a sinister past. It’s not an obvious sightseeing attraction, or even one that’s easy to reach, but I’m visiting as part of a small cruise through the relatively unknown Abrolhos Islands. This archipelago of 122 coral and limestone islands strung along the world’s most southerly reef system, 60km offshore from west coast town Geraldton, welcomes only a handful of tourists each year, yet it occupies an important place in Australia’s history.

116

In 1629, the Dutch merchant vessel Batavia shipwrecked after hitting Morning Reef, which sailors had mistaken for “moonshine on the water”. Of the 322 passengers on board, most managed to swim to shore, although a mutiny reminiscent of Lord Of The Flies ensued.

Hero Wiebbe Hayes eventually reclaimed peace, and the stone forts he erected on West Wallabi Island are considered to be the first European buildings on Australian soil. Providing tidal conditions are favourable, tourists can snorkel or dive the Batavia shipwreck, although up until recently, it’s only been possible to reach with expensive charters or by hitching a ride with a fisherman. A crayfishing industry developed here in the 1920s, with settlements springing up over the course of subsequent decades. But communities collapsed when a quota system was introduced in 2010, meaning it was no longer feasible to fish for more than a few months a year. Jay Cox, 54, lived on Rat Island for 14 years with his wife, Sonia, and their children. He’s since swapped crayfishing for tourism, and purchased the Eco Abrolhos six years ago, after seeing it for sale in a magazine. The 38-passenger ship, which formerly operated in the Whitsundays, becomes my cosy home for the next five days. I’m joined on board by a group of 15 hardy, nature-loving Australians, mainly retirees escaping the east coast winter on long caravanning trips. During our bumpy four-hour sailing from Geraldton, I hear about a 70-year-old vet’s attempts to reintroduce a rare breed of pheasant to New South

TRAVEL

Wales, and learn how one couple manage to survive for six months a year camping on a beach with just a couple of fishing rods and a biodegradable toilet. All the while, I’m distracted by migratory humpbacks breaching on the horizon. Lying in the stream of the Leeuwin Current, the Abrolhos Islands are surrounded by a mixture of tropical and temperate waters making conditions extremely favourable for marine wildlife and a healthy coral reef. Belts of turquoise and indigo wrap around the islands, melting into each other like butter in a pan. Using the gentle current to carry me, I drift snorkel off the shores of Wooded Island, admiring some of the 100 different types of coral found here. Clownfish eyeball me suspiciously from beneath the writhing tendrils of blue-tipped anemones, as I float below a rooftop of large plate corals. Those who prefer not to get wet take a scenic trip in glass bottom boat, the King Diver, while others fish for squid. That evening, Chook and Jay’s son, Bronson, fillet snapper and coral trout for dinner as the watery silhouettes of salivating reef sharks gather around the boat. While sitting at the top deck bar built by Jay, I learn more about the local fishing community’s opposition to tourism in the Abrolhos. A story emerges, almost as cut-throat as the Batavia mutiny 400 years ago. Three days before we’d set off, Jay had received a phone call warning him not to visit any inhabited islands as part of the ship’s itinerary. Local fishermen, it appears, would prefer to keep their idyllic kingdoms to themselves.

It would probably be much easier and more profitable for Jay and Sonia to spend more time in Western Australia’s Kimberley region, where Eco Abrolhos also operates itineraries. “We put the Kimberleys into a Google algorithms search engine and in a month there were 122,000 searches,” explains Jay. “In the same period there were just 80 for the Abrolhos.” But a combination of passion and anger spurs them on. Defying threats, we land on Pigeon Island where one of the few receptive fishermen, Al, has been living since he was 15. At one time, the population swelled to 70. Faded artwork decorates a schoolroom which closed in 2008, and freshly chalked cues still lie across a pool table in the community centre.

I tiptoe into a corrugated iron “museum piece” house, where a vintage TV set glares at a ripped, monochrome art deco sofa and dirty tea cups sit on a Formica table imprinted with an image of the Venetian lagoon.

TRAVEL

The Abolhos Islands (Picture credit: PA Photo/Sarah Marshall)

Jay reminisces about a care-free past, and I wonder if an element of his determination to set foot on these forgotten islands is bound-up with personal nostalgia. In reality, he shouldn’t be so concerned. While dwindling communities are a point of interest, their rundown shacks, strangled in a mass of electrical cables, are, for the most part, depressingly ugly. For me, it’s the remote, unsullied spots that prove to be the biggest draw. More than 90 different species of seabird can be found here, including the threatened Australian Lesser Noddy. We go in search of the diminutive birds (which weigh just 100g) on Leos Island, although after lifting up a few bushes, Jay shrugs his shoulders and concludes “they’re not here today”. Instead, we sit on the banks of a lagoon and watch cormorants skim the water as osprey flit back and forth to their nest. On East Wallabi Island, one of the few limestone islands with access to fresh water, I spend an afternoon trying to spot timid Tammar wallabies in the dense thickets, while other members of our group attempt to prize free oysters clinging tightly to rocks at Turtle Bay. Not a single - even lost - soul could disturb the peace.

Tourism in the Abrolhos Islands is admittedly in its early stages, and there’s no denying the Cox’s have a challenging ride ahead. “Sometimes I think this is too hard,” admits Sonia, during a low point. But their love for the destination is too great to ignore. Jay recalls a group of visiting scientists who he guided 10 years ago as part of a charter tour. “They were visiting 40 reef systems around Australia and claimed this was one of the best,” he says proudly. “They said, just keep doing what you’re doing; this could be the next Great Barrier Reef.” By David Wilcock, Press Association

DREAM KITCHENS & BATHROOMS Plan your space like a pro

Good design may be more critical in the kitchen than in any other room in the home. These tips can help make your design a successful one

1

Determine a plan for your space. Most clients start out with a wish list and a collection of inspiration images. This is a great help in getting started, but try to focus on the space plans before getting too caught up in what the kitchen is going to look like. Space plans can be rough — they’re all about the best layout. You or your designer should try some different options for where the appliances will go. What’s the best layout for your space? An L-shape kitchen with an island? A U-shape kitchen? Or do you have a galley kitchen? Do you have the space for an eat-in kitchen? Are you moving doors or changing windows? These plans don’t have to detail where your pots, pans and silverware are going or what colour the cabinets will be, not yet.

2

Get preliminary estimates. Once you have a proposed floor plan in hand (and a written scope of work), most contractors interested in the job will be willing to come over and give you a ballpark estimate. The more information you have, the more accurate the ballpark number, so if you can get your designer to do a schematic electrical and lighting plan, that’s even better. All of this is subject to change, but at least you have an idea of costs before you get too emotionally committed. At this point, you can also estimate material costs such as cabinetry, countertops, tile and flooring square footage and so on.

3

Develop plans, elevations and 3-D drawings. Now that you’ve got a plan you love, let your designer really detail it out. Drawings will help you visualise what the cabinetry will look like. Note on the plans and drawings where spices, pots and pans, silverware and utensils will go.

At this stage, it’s not just about the practical and functional. This is where you get to be more artistic. Cabinet design is a bit like modernist art because it’s all about the rectangles and squares of cabinet doors, and the way they relate and intersect. The proportions of doors and the scale of three doors next to each other, rather than two, make all the difference in making a kitchen look dynamic and interesting

4

Plan materials and finishes. Now that you’re working with more developed drawings, you can visualize what materials are going to go where, as well as the proportions of those materials. Most likely, there will still be a final design development period and construction documents, and then a final phase during which the drawings, specifications and scope of work are given to the contractor for final pricing. A lot of home activities - cooking, cleaning, eating, drinking, socialising - take place in the kitchen, that’s why it needs to be both beautiful and functional. Regardless of your kitchen design style, organisation and layout are essential. Here are the 10 mistakes to avoid in order to achieve both practical and elegant kitchen design.

INTERIORS

A New Leaf “The colours of autumn are rich, warm and earthy, inspired by the harvest. You can really change the look of a room by bringing in shades which reflect the purples and plums of berries, russet shades of leaves and dark greens of mosses, and which will create an autumnal sanctuary,” says Sian O’Neill, head of marketing at Topps Tiles. “Bring in the shades with tiles for a wall or the floor. This is the perfect opportunity to introduce a practical hard-wearing surface for a hall which will bear the brunt of all those wet, muddy boots and shoes. Spruce up existing tiles by using a colour intensifier solution, which will also provide stain and waterproof protection.” Etched Hex Tiles, in rich brown and neutral shades, boast a texture finish similar to tree bark, and are currently reduced to £244.85 from £306.36 per square metre, Topps Tiles. Their Colour Intensifier solution is £32.99 for 1L.

Mirror Mirror Bathrooms are often overlooked when it comes to a style shake-up, but introducing lighting via accessories, specifically with illuminated mirrors and mirrored cabinets, can make a huge difference to a room. “Aside from sleek functionality, a carefully considered mirror can be a great feature statement. It’s typically the first thing to catch your eye when you walk into the bathroom,” says Steve Kaye, marketing director at HiB. “An alternative to harsh overhead lighting allows you to change the atmosphere in the bathroom, and help create a tranquil ‘spa’ effect.”

INTERIORS

Get A Handle On It “If you want to breathe a new lease of life into your kitchen but don’t have the budget for a revamp, the introduction of new handles is an easy and affordable way of making a real style impact,” says Ben Burbidge, managing director at kitchen specialists, Burbidge. “The trend is for more discreet handles, such as top-fitting ones in brushed aluminium or chrome, and those whose finish - gloss or matt - match the doors.” Cast Iron-effect Tung Handles, from £8.50 each, and Brilliant Otto Cashmere Chrome Metal Bow Handle, from £8.50 each, Burbidge. An appropriate autumnal scene features on a beautifully decorated Red Lake Wooden Knob, £9 each, from the English Romantic Collection at Chocolate Creative. Other designs are Blue Lake, Cottages and Bridges.

Hug The Home Treat rooms to a little TLC, and your home will repay you by being a cosy retreat this Autumn. “We’re seeing people follow the Danish art of living well - ‘hygge’ (pronounced ‘hoo-ga’) - and creating cosy homes that focus on relaxation and hunkering down with their families,” says Joanna Feeley, chief executive of homes and lifestyle forecasting agency, Trend Bible. “That atmosphere is compatible with a warm, earthy colour palette and heavily textured fabrics and materials. Ceramics and marl fabrics are flecked and speckled, adding subtle, organic pattern to home products. Textile prints have a rawness to them, and Scandi-style floral prints have an imperfection which ties in perfectly with this idea of cosy, natural and casual living.”

Set the scene by the fireside with items from House of Fraser’s Shabby Chic range, which includes a Dahlia Petite Stone Sofa, currently reduced to £899 from £1,285. Ramp up the comfort with and a Linea Chunky Cable Knit Blanket, reduced to £40 from £80, or a Linea Artisan Throw, reduced to £48 from £60. Flickering candlelight is soothing and an essential part of the look - Mercury Candlesticks, from £21 each - while flowers are the ultimate finishing touch: Ellen Ceramic Vase, currently reduced to £35 from £50. A Linea Leaf Collage

Cushion, reduced to £16 from £20, will make for an extra autumnal and cosy touch, all House of Fraser.

Get Fired Up It may still be too warm to light the fires, but a well-dressed hearth can still be a focal point. A chimney breast can be transformed into a feature by painting it and the fire surround in the same, or a complementary, shade. Black or moody grey shades, with the interior of the fireplace in a burnished gold, mimicking the glow of a fire, would be ideal for a dramatic scheme. The Colours paint range, £13.94 for 2.5L, has black and grey shades, and Craig & Rose Opulence Kings Gold Emulsion is £31.87 for 2.5L from B&Q. Use the floor of the hearth to display candles (faux ones are safer), and interesting accessories such as a vintage trunk - perfect for housing distracting clutter - or even a floral display. HomeSense stores’ excellent accessories range includes a selection of Trunks - small, £19.95; large, £29.99 - and a Glass Domed Multi-bulb Lamp, £49.99. It’s monochrome Striped Side Table, £39.99, could be paired with its Striped Cushion, £24.99. For a final flourish, add a Black Ceiling Pendant Lampshade, £29.99. There are plenty of bargains at TK Maxx, including a fab Metal Spotlight Lamp, £29.99.


INTERIORS

Make An Entrance Giving the front of the home a quick facelift, by replacing the door and repainting the exterior, will work wonders. “It’s the ideal time to smarten up the front of the home, before the cold weather strikes,” says Jill McLintock, product manager at Everest Home Improvements. “Updating a front door gives a home added kerb appeal,” she adds. “Current popular front door shades include a subtle chartwell green and a pale porcelain blue - both ideal for those who want to introduce colour without being too bold. “In terms of design, we’re seeing a rise in popularity of the stable-style door, particularly for country homes, while streamlined designs are traditionally favoured for urban settings. Timber doors are a classic choice but modern composite materials, which have the style, solid feel and even the grain effect of wood, can help minimise heat loss and improve the security of a home.” Grove composite door, and Sandringham stable-style door, from £2,000 each, including installation, Everest. Dulux Weathershield Exterior Paint, £19.73 for 750ML, B&Q, can be applied direct to wood or metal and needs no undercoat. By Gabrielle Fagan, Press Association

ABOUT US 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 this

OUTDOOR LIVING

A Japanese garden at night

AMAZING ACERS The Japanese maple, or acer, is one of those supremely elegant plants with fine, fern-like foliage in colours to die for, from deep burgundy to pink and white, many producing a brilliant display of intense hues in autumn. Of course, these delicate-looking beauties look wonderful in classically tiered Japanese-themed gardens, overhanging water, blending with other shrubs that like acid soil, including azaleas and shade-loving mosses and ferns, which will grow underneath the feathery cover of the acer foliage. But the many cultivars can also be grown in smaller gardens and in pots, providing texture, colour and immense architectural value from spring to autumn when their leaves will eventually fall, as nearly all acers are deciduous.

142

Plant them in full sun, provided the soil is not excessively dry, or dappled shade. They are perfect specimens to grow under the gentle shade of larger trees, provided the earth isn’t swamped in the roots of the bigger specimens. They prefer acid soil, so when planting, dig in some ericaceous compost to give them a good start. Try to keep them out of biting winds, which can burn their delicate foliage and keep them well watered until they are established. If you are planting in pots, use a container at least 30cm in diameter and a compost comprising equal parts John Innes No 2 and a soil-less multi-purpose compost. Maples grown in containers require more care than those planted in open ground, because the roots can’t grow deep down in search of water and nutrients.

When choosing an acer, take careful note of its shape, bearing in mind where you want to plant it. Many have already been pruned into what will become a dome-like shape, with few branches at the base. Others will afford a more upright position, which might be better depending on where you want to place them.

Water container plants regularly, probably daily during dry spells, and top-dress the container annually in early spring to remove weeds from the surface layer. I always take the top few inches of compost off my potted acer and replace it with new compost.

Many cultivars are excellent grown in containers. The restricted root space will keep them compact, while less hardy varieties can be moved to a sheltered position close to the house in the coldest months.

Repot the acer every three to five years if you can prise it from the container, replanting it into either the same or a slightly larger container. Tease out the roots, and cut back any large coarse ones before

Acers

replanting it into a new container, then fill in with fresh compost so the root ball sits at the same level as before. Good container specimens include A. palmatum ‘Garnet’, a feathery deep red type which grows to around 2m and whose leaves turn a vivid lighter red in autumn, and A. palmatum var. dissectum, a dome-shaped bush of finely cut mid-green leaves which looks great if the branches hang over water and whose leaves turn golden in autumn. Those that will make showstoppers in the ground include A. palmatum ‘Bloodgood’, whose auberginecoloured leaves turn bright red in autumn, and A. palmatum ‘Sango-kaku’, a good all-rounder with orange-yellow leaves in spring, which turn green and finally orange and red in autumn.


OUTDOOR LIVING

WHAT TO DO THIS WEEK • Check your greenhouse thermometer regularly and if the minimum temperature has dropped below 3-4C (38-40F) overnight, you may need to turn it up a little. • Check stored fruits every week and use them as fast as you can. Remove any showing signs of mould. • Plant tulips in gritty, well-drained compost. • Order new fruit trees and bushes and prepare the ground for planting. • Prune blackberries and hybrid berry fruits after harvesting. • Cut pumpkins and squashes, wipe the dirt off and leave them outside so the skins dry in the sun. They should last until Christmas in a frost-free shed.

Hypericum

Japanese maples do not require much pruning. Just snip out any dead shoot tips as the buds open in spring. Remove badly placed and crossing shoots to maintain a well-balanced shape and cut out any dead or diseased wood from late autumn to midwinter, or in spring for plants in containers. BEST OF THE BUNCH - Hypericum This stalwart shrub produces bright yellow flowers throughout summer, followed by berries, depending on the variety. There’s a hypericum for most situations. The larger types look great in a border, the smaller ones will brighten up a rock garden, and you can get both evergreen and deciduous species which provide lovely autumn colour. Certain types will also bear berries. H. androsaemum (Tutsan), for instance, a bushy, deciduous shrub which grows up to 75cm tall, produces red berries which ripen to black in autumn. Larger shrubs prefer moist but well-drained soil in sun or partial shade, while the smaller rock garden types prefer full sun and good draining. Trim them in spring to keep them neat or cut the larger deciduous types back hard in early spring to contain their growth.

• Remove yellowing leaves from Brussels sprouts and other winter brassicas. • Plant evergreens and shrubs in containers for winter colour. • Plant or divide and move lily bulbs. They don’t like drying out, so replant them immediately. • Continue to remove dead leaves from the lawn to stop the grass turning yellow and use the leaves to make leaf mould.

GOOD ENOUGH TO EAT - Baby vegetables So many of these are sold in supermarkets - from baby leeks and miniature courgettes to dwarf carrots and sweetcorn - but you can’t beat growing your own. Some of the shop-bought types have been bred to be genetically undersized varieties, but you can grow standard types closer together and harvest them earlier. Quick-maturing varieties include early carrots such as Amsterdam Forcing and turnips like Snowball. Leeks like Jolant can be grown in close rows and pulled after 12 weeks, or you could leave them in the ground to become larger, more standard sizes. As a general rule, grow baby vegetables closer together than you would ordinary varieties, although courgettes and sweetcorn will need to be given more space to grow. Thin carrots, beetroot and turnips, leaving them 3cm apart. Space cabbage and lettuce 15cm apart. Baby veg need humus-rich soil, thorough watering and regular feeding but can do well in pots and tiny beds.. By Hannah Stephenson, Press Association Photo credit: PA Photo/thinkstockphotos

ROAD TEST: MAZDA MX-5 SE-L NAV NEW SEAT LEON

144

SEAT will be launching a revised version of its popular Leon model in Febuary, featuring new engines, enhanced technology, a new trim level and more elegant design. Prices have not yet been announced. New systems include Traffic Sign Recognition, Blind Spot Detection, and the most advanced parking assist technology with both bay and parallel parking, Emergency Assist and High Beam Assist. The camera and navigation systems have been improved too, to recognise a higher number of traffic signs. The New SEAT Leon also includes a new centre console with an Electric Parking Brake. The new SEAT Leon will be offered with five trim levels at UK launch: S, SE Dynamic, SE Technology, FR and the new XCELLENCE. The TDI engine range begins with a 1.6 115 hp and goes up to the 2.0 184 hp. Petrol engines range from 110 to 180 hp, with a new 1.0 litre TSI three-cylinder 115 hp for the UK being the latest addition. When it comes to gearboxes, the range includes five- or six-speed manual units, as well as double-clutch DSG with six- or seven-speeds. The New SEAT Leon will be available in the three existing body types; five-door, SC (Sports Coupé) and ST (Sports Tourer).

Having completed my road test route, I didn’t go indoors for my usual cup of tea. I immediately set off and drove the whole route again, just for pure pleasure of driving such a wonderful car, writes NICK FLETCHER. That car was the Mazda MX-5, and while you can’t say a lot about the space, comfort and practicality of a two-seater sports car, you can say a lot about its driving dynamics. And in the case of the MX-5, they are just brilliant. The steering is pin-sharp, the gearshift slick, the chassis balance and suspension set-up keep the car glued to the tarmac, and the exhaust soundtrack is glorious. Priced from £18,130, the MX-5 is a bargain in its sector. OK, there are rival models that are faster, with more kit and often nearly twice the price - but they are less engaging to drive and far less fun. My test model used the 1.5 litre 128 hp engine (there is a two- litre with more mid-range power) and it was smooth and keen with its power delivery and 60 mph is reached is a whisker over 8 seconds. That’s nowhere near Porsche

performance but such is the charisma and agility of the MX-5, it often feels like it! Top speed is 127 mph and fuel economy is 47.1 mpg combined. Cornering is a joyous experience, the grip astonishly good, and this sporty little Mazda offers decent ride comfort without sacrificing its poise and stability. Flip the hood down (its manual, just one quick-release lever) throw a couple of holdalls in the boot (at just 130 litres, not room for much more) and you are on your way with the wind in your hair! The test model was in SE-L Nav trim, costing £20,195 and creature comforts included 7-inch touchsreen, sat-nav, Bluetooth, DAB radio, cruise control with speed limiter, climate control and alloys wheels. Cabin space is comfortable for two adults, the dashboard is laid out well with main dials straight in front of the driver and a lot of buttons on the steering wheels. Oddments space is minimal and there is no glovebox. Launched more than 25 years ago, the MX-5 has become a modern classic, an iconic design. Almost one million have been sold and in Europe, the UK is its most popular market.

ROAD TEST: VOLKSWAGEN UP! The Volkswagen Up! is the company’s smallest model, a wellbuilt and quite classy city car competing in a crowded sector of the market, writes NICK FLETCHER. Two of the rivals are the Skoda Citigo and the SEAT Mii – also from the VW stable – and others include Toyota Aygo, Citroen C1, Hyundai i10 and even the Fiat 500. The Up! - from £8,995 - may be small but you get the same immediate impression of top-drawer build-quality that hallmarks larger VW models. Available in three and five-door form, and with a choice of nippy yet frugal three-cylinder 1.0 litre engines of varying power outputs, the Up! is surprising roomy, and a real treat to drive. Some city cars can be noisy and jerky but the Up! has a fluency and refinement you usually get in cars from a class above. My test model was the smallest of the power range, just 59 hp, yet it never felt under-powered. The 0-60 mph time of 14.4 seconds may seem a tad slow on paper, but such is the agility of the car, it felt faster. Top speed is 100mph which means it can be a relatively quiet motorway cruiser, and its eco-clean too, with emissions just 96g/km. Fuel economy is impressive at 68.9 mpg combined. My mid-range MoveUp! test model in three-door form was priced at £10,325 and came with power windows, air-con, stop/start function, alloy wheels, five-inch colour touchscreen, Bluetooth and an adjustable boot floor. With more distinctive styling touches than most city-car rivals, the Up! stands out, and the large dominant VW bonnet badge makes a strong statement.

Clever use of interior space means the Up! has good head and leg room even for taller occupants. A large tailgate gives access to 250 litre boot, one of the largest in the sector, which can be boosted to 950 litres by folding the rear seats, helping this city car earn top marks for practicality. Underway, the Up! drives nicely, with smooth power delivery, a slick 5-speed gearbox, and excellent steering. The car feels very composed even if pushed into a tight bend, and the ride quality, though slightly firm, is still comfortable. There is an upright driving position for good forward visibility, and the dashboard has a straightforward layout with all the dials and switches clearly accessible. Big plus-points are VW build-quality, chic styling, nice driving dynamics. Overall, it was hard to find a downside to the Up!

GT-R NISMO PRICE REVEALED

ROAD TEST: BMW 330E SPORT SALOON Petrol-electic hybrid cars have been around for a while, but technology keep moving on and there are now an increasing number of plug-in hybrids available, rechargable at home or at public charging points, writes NICK FLETCHER. BMW has become well-established in this expanding market with models such as the i3 and i8, and now there is also a version of its iconic 3-Series, the 330e. It is a plug-in hybrid with all the cachet of a BMW but the environmental credentials of a supermini. Base price of the 330e is £34,235 including Government grant, but with a variety of options my Sport test model was £42,350. It was of course lavishly equipped and included premium satnav system, reversing and wing-mirror cameras, leather upholstery, electrically adjustable (and heated) sports seats, cruise control, automatic dual zone climate control, auto lights and wipers, and M Sport suspension. Powered by a 2-litre turbocharged 4-cylinder petrol engine, an electric motor delivers 87hp of the 249 hp on offer. It is mated to a superb 8-speed automatic transmission with well-spaced ratios and a smooth shift action. Running in electric mode wherever possible the 330e switches to internal combustion seamlessly, and you can run the car in electriconly mode for up 25 miles at city speeds at the touch of a

switch. Domestic re-charging takes just two hours with a special wallbox, or three hours from a home plug-socket. Plug-in hybrid it is, but don’t expect it to be slow - the 0-60 mph time is a searing 6.1 seconds, top speed 140 mph. Official fuel economy is 134.5 mpg combined but in real-world driving expect about half that - still impressive for such a fast, powerful car. And you can also tick the green credentials box - emissions are just 46g/km. The 8-speed auto gearbox is utterly smooth, the steering delivers intuitive feedback and the M Sport suspension provides a perfect balance between ride comfort and cornering firmness. The car has svelte elegant styling which complements its prestige persona, and that continues in the cabin, which is beautifully designed for both comfort and driver-focus. The dashboard is thoughtfully laid out for ease of use, seating very comfortable, with ample room for all occupants. And though the boot space is slightly smaller than on a normal 3-Series (they have to put the batteries somewhere!) at 370 litres it is still quite substantial. Not everyone is yet ready for plug-in hybrids - some are holding back to see how fast-moving technology advances and how residual values hold up - but anyone checking out this BMW 330e cannot fail to be impressed.

Nissan has announced that its range-topping super-coupe GT-R Nismo which goes on UK sale on November 1st, will cost £149,995. Power comes from a twinturbocharged 3.8-litre V6 delivering 592 hp. The engine features a pair of high-flow, large diameter turbochargers used in GT3 competition, and power is sent to all four wheels via a six-speed dualclutch paddleshift gearbox. Like the standard car, the GT-R NISMO’s front end features a fresh face with a dramatic new bumper. However, on this model it’s made entirely from carbon fibre to reduce weight. To help cool the car’s highoutput engine, the dark chrome V-motion grille has been enlarged to collect more air. The performance of the allwheel-drive GT-R NISMO has also been upgraded, thanks in part to the standard model’s significantly reinforced body structure. This allowed the engineering team to further refine the GT-R NISMO’s shock absorbers, springs and stabilisers. When combined with the car’s increase in downforce, the result is the most dynamically capable GT-R NISMO ever.

FREE CHARGING UNIT Mitsubishi Motors customers purchasing a new Outlander PHEV can now have a Mitsubishi-approved Chargemaster Homecharge unit supplied and fully installed completely free of charge. Private, business and fleet customers will save £279 on a 3.6kW Chargemaster Homecharge unit, which includes full standard domestic installation. The unit charges the Outlander 60% faster than a 13A socket and is the quickest way to charge at home. To keep drivers fully-charged when away from home, all new Outlander PHEVs also come with a free POLAR Plus membership card, which gives unlimited instant access to Chargemaster’s rapidly-expanding network of over 5,000 public charging points for a six month period. As the UK’s largest charging network, this means Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV drivers can access more than three times as many public charging points than those of any other network. This offer is open to new Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV customers registered between 14 October and 28 December 2016, with an installation date of 31st January 2017 or earlier, who are also eligible for the OLEV Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme grant, requiring standard installation.

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

TIME TO SHOW OFF YOUR NAILS! With nearly 20 years in the Beauty Industry I’ve lost track of the amount of times clients say to me their nails aren’t in good enough condition or too short for a Manicure! Everyone can benefit from a Manicure treatment. It is deeply relaxing, will give you confidence about the appearance of your nails and will visibly improve the condition and improve the strength and length of your nails. The most exposed part of your body is your hands & fingernails, as they are always on show and nothing looks better than clean well-maintained fingernails. Regular manicures will enhance the health of your fingernails, promoting faster growth and maintaining well moisturised cuticles. But the benefits of a professional manicure include much more than just the appearance of your hands.

hydrate the skin, massaged into the forearm and hand, as well as nourish the nails and cuticles. Massaging provide stress relief, improves blood flow and helps to relieve aches and pains. It is also very relaxing. The end result is softer skin and you feeling re-energized. The various oils, treatments and polishes used can strengthen your fingernails. You can expect a professional manicure to last about three weeks. During that time you will be able to proudly bare your hands, comfortable with the super soft condition of the skin and the quality of the treatment.

Manicure and services are not just for women! There are great benefits for men as well. Manicures should be done regularly for good hand and nail health for both genders. Our luxury Manicure treatments also includes a Hydrating Vitamin Mask treatment for the hands infused with warm mitts – super relaxing, beneficial for any joint pain and stiffness plus great for dry hands and cuticles! Chic Manicures from £24.

Having great looking nails is a good reason alone to have a regular manicure but there are also important health benefits. Receiving a regular manicure treatment will help prevent any nail disease’s or nail disorder’s. Prevention is much better than cure and with regular care you will not need to worry about conditions which can be painful and unsightly. There is a lot more to a manicure than just filing your nails and adding a coat or two of polish. Special cuticle treatments and moisturizers are used to

QUIT TALKING START DOING, NO EXCUSE!

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

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

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

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

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

5. Significant body shape changes.

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

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

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

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

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

FINDING THE PERFECT SMILE WITH OCEAN DENTALCARE With more and more people craving whiter teeth we wanted to find out the facts and options of getting that perfect smile. Who better to talk to than the smiley team at Ocean Dentalcare, we were introduced to the very nice Dr Christopher Manlow who explained the process.

How do our teeth get stained? There are some pigments in the food we eat that stains the enamel layer of our teeth. These pigments slowly penetrate into the porous surface of our teeth through cracks and crevices in our teeth. Over time these stains become darker and make our teeth look discoloured. Even the conventional brushing isn’t good enough to get rid of these pigments. Having a lot of tobacco, tea, coffee and red wines stain our teeth the most. The best solution to this is tooth whitening.

What does tooth whitening involve? Ocean Dentalcare offer a few different types of tooth whitening. Professional bleaching is the most usual method of tooth whitening. The team at Ocean Dentalcare will be able to tell you if you are suitable for the treatment, and will supervise it if you are. We were offered the chance to review the effectiveness of their Illumine teeth whitening treatment, Dr Manlow firstly made a mould for a tray that fits perfectly into the mouth, once the mouth tray was made you are shown how to load the tray with the teeth whitening gel which you can do for a set time each night from the comfort of your home. The whole process should take about 2 weeks, this can vary from patient to patient depending on how stained your teeth are.

150

How long does it last? After the process your teeth will remain a lot whiter for up to 2 years, once you have done the initial couple of weeks you can top up you new smile every 12 to 16 months by buying a tube of gel to use in your existing mouth tray. In an ultra-competitive world that we live in there’s the need to gain an edge – having a great smile is a huge asset. Indeed, a recent New Zealand study found that whiter teeth can make you 10 per cent more employable and 20 per cent more attractive, while shaving five years off your looks into the bargain. You have no doubt noticed hundreds of over the counter teeth whitening products from tooth pastes to strips. Some claim to lighten teeth by up to eight shades, but here’s the catch. Under European Union law, over-the-counter whitening products are only deemed safe if they contain a maximum of 0.1 per cent hydrogen peroxide (the gold-standard whitening agent), a level which dentists say is too low to whiten teeth. Stronger products containing up to 6 per cent hydrogen peroxide are only available for home use following an examination and first treatment at a dentist’s practice or under their supervision. Having carried thousands whitening procedures over the past years, Dr Manlow believes the triedand-tested home-whitening trays dispensed by dentists give consistently good results. Saying that they now offer ‘Enlighten’ tooth whitening as well as their standard whitening! This procedure is manufacturer-guaranteed to produce a shade of B1 in most cases - this means the whitest you will ever get your teeth naturally. You can call one of their receptionists for details, or read all about it on: www.enlightensmiles.com.

You’ll also have a fair idea of what you’re signing up for. After an examination to check teeth and gums are healthy and your projected shade identified, impressions of your own teeth are taken and the trays are custom-built to fit. You then follow your dentist’s instructions for two to four weeks. Can’t wait that long? The quickest methods are “laser” whitening where hydrogen peroxide gel is painted on to teeth, the ‘laser’ whitening in fact only drys the teeth, the whitening effect is a lot shorter lasting and a lot more painful than the two week version which is why Ocean Dentalcare do not offer as they want their patients to be pain free. With all of this said, people do need to be aware and urge caution over cut-price whitening in high street clinics and beauty salons which may offer treatments illegally. Under the Dentists Act 1884, only dentists or dental health professionals, such as hygienists, dental therapists and clinical dental technicians, working to a dentist’s prescription can carry out teeth whitening. A smile can be the most eye-catching feature of a face. With dentistry’s many advances you no longer have to settle for stained, chipped or misshapen teeth. You now have choices that can help you smile with confidence. Even the most subtle change in your smile can make a dramatic difference in the way you look and feel about yourself. Ocean Dentalcare have a high level of technology available so they can offer you many of the latest treatments to enhance the health and beauty of your smile. They can increase your smile health, vitality and beauty at the same time. They are currently running a half price teeth whitening deal so why not give their friendly team a call!

FOOD & DRINK

SPICE UP YOUR LIFE “Indian cooking is not about chucking in the chilli and seeing how hot you can get it, it’s about the layering of flavours,” says Hari Ghotra as she stirs the mouthwatering deep red masala sauce for her Thari Wala Chicken.

Ghotra, who lives in Redhill, Surrey, with her husband Jeremy and children, Neyha, 11, and Jai, 9, started out teaching Indian cooking classes at evenings and weekends when she went back to work part-time after having kids.

Into her cast-iron pot, we’ve added onions and garlic that have been cooked until they’re a dark golden brown (“Onions are so important for that depth of flavour,” she says), a tin of plum tomatoes (“Not chopped, because the gravy’s better”), ginger, salt, turmeric, coriander stalks and, of course, chilli.

She’s leading the way for female Indian chefs: “It’s a male-dominated environment. I haven’t had any bad experiences, they’re so respectful, but a lot of women in Indian culture are expected to run the home. Maybe more British Asian women will be going into that industry now, because it’s more accepted.”

A self-taught home cook and soon-to-be executive chef at the Soho sister restaurant of Mayfair’s Michelin-starred Tamarind, Ghotra is passionate about Indian food and is on a mission to enable everyone to cook a curry from scratch for themselves. “It’s healthy, wholesome, really flavoursome and you can cook it at home quite easily,” she says, when we sit down to a sumptuous feast of samosas, aloo gobi (potato cauliflower vegetable curry), cumin rice, the chicken curry and red lentil dhal (Ghotra’s hangover cure, “It brings me back to life”). I’m amazed that, having never chopped a chilli in my life, I now feel more confident around them and understand a lot more about Indian ingredients particularly spices and how to use them - than I’ve ever done. I’ve also become quite nifty at folding samosas!

Jeera Chaul (Cumin Rice) (Serves 4)

Ghotra learned to love cooking and Indian food by “following my mum around the kitchen” at their home in Wolverhampton: “Food for my parents was very important, because it would have been another thing that they left behind, they tried desperately to hold onto their culture and roots. I come from a very working class family, so it’s very basic food, authentically cooked, the way my mum had been taught by my grandma. “It instilled a real love of ingredients in me - mum would always make me go to the garden to pick mint in the rain, or I’d make the dough for the rotis. I absolutely hated it, but every day we had to do that and my mum would make about 30 to 40 chapatis that everyone would sit and eat.”

Kate Whiting with Hari Ghotra in her kitchen (Photo Credit: PA Photo/Handout)

Her kids were weaned on plain rice and lentils, as well as the usual veggie purees, and her daughter can now make all her favourite curries by herself. And Ghotra’s an advocate for home-cooked Indian food being “one of the healthiest meals you can have”. “You have your carbs, rice or roti, lentils, a veg dish, a meat or fish dish and some form of yogurt or salad or chutney, so there’s a lot of freshness in there and they represent all of those key food groups. It’s not about loading up your plate, it’s about having little portions of each. I’m really anti fad foods, it drives me insane. Just control the volume and cut out rubbish.” By Kate Whiting, Press Association Try some Hari’s recipes for yourself and discover more at www.harighotra.co.uk...

Ingredients 1tbsp oil 1tsp cumin seeds 1 small onion, finely sliced 200g Basmati rice 50g frozen peas

Method Wash the rice until the water runs clear. I do this by covering the rice with water and running my hand through it, pouring the starchy water away then refilling with cold water and repeating until the water runs clear. Strain in a sieve and leave. In a wide based pan, heat the oil, add the onions and fry until translucent. Add the whole cumin seeds. When they sizzle and become fragrant, stir in the frozen peas. Add the washed rice, stir to coat with the oil then pour in 500ml of water (twice the amount of water to rice). Bring the water to a vigorous rolling boil, reduce the heat to the lowest setting and place the lid on the pan. Leave to cook for 12 minutes; do not remove the lid - be patient! After 12 minutes, remove from the heat and take the lid off. Leave to sit for a couple of minutes. All the water will be absorbed and the rice will be light and fluffy.

Gently fork through the rice (never dive straight in) and serve.


FOOD & DRINK

Thari Wala Chicken (Serves 4)

PA Photo/Handout

Ingredients

Method

8 pieces of chicken (4 legs cut into thighs and drumsticks)

Skin the chicken, removing any excess fat. (If you would rather cook the meat off the bone, use trimmed chunks of thigh meat and cook for 15 - 20 minutes).

For the masala: 2tbsp of oil 2 onions, finely diced 3 cloves of garlic, finely chopped 400g plum tomatoes 1 heaped tbsp of ginger, grated 1tsp salt 1tsp turmeric Handful of coriander stalks, finely chopped 1 chilli, finely chopped 1tsp of garam masala Handful of coriander leaves, chopped

Heat oil in a pan and add the onion and garlic. Fry on a high heat for a few minutes then reduce the heat and cook gently for about 20 minutes until they turn a lovely dark golden brown. If they stick to the bottom of the pan, add a dash of hot water as and when required.

to 10 minutes so be patient! Once the paste is shiny and thick, add the chicken pieces and stir to coat. Turn the heat up and fry the chicken for five minutes. Reduce the heat to the lowest setting and put the lid on the pan. Leave to cook for 20-25 minutes, until the chicken is cooked and the meat is starting to fall away from the bone.

Once browned, reduce the heat and add the tomatoes, ginger, salt, turmeric, coriander stalks and chilli.

Once cooked, add enough boiling water to just cover the chicken and cook for another few minutes, then remove from the heat.

Let the onions and tomatoes melt together creating a thick aromatic masala paste. This will take five

Stir in the garam masala, throw in the coriander and serve. 153


FOOD & DRINK

Masoor Di Dhal (Red Lentil Dhal) (Serves 4)

PA Photo/Handout

Ingredients

Method

For the lentils: 200g red lentils, washed 900ml water (approx.) 1tsp of salt

Place the lentils in a pan with the salt, cover with the water and bring to the boil.

For the masala: 1tbsp ghee or vegetable oil 1tsp of cumin seeds 1 bay leaf 1 small onion, chopped 1 garlic clove, chopped 2 tomatoes, finely chopped 1tsp ginger, grated 1tsp turmeric 1 chilli, finely chopped 1tsp fenugreek leaves 1tsp of garam masala To garnish: 1 or 2 whole chillies Handful of coriander, chopped 154

Remove the froth, reduce the heat and put the lid on the pan - leave to simmer for 10 minutes. Check the lentils are cooked by squeezing them between your fingers. Once soft, remove from the heat. In a frying pan, heat the ghee or oil. Using a fork, pierce the whole chillies and add to the pan with a bay leaf and the cumin seeds. When the seeds sizzle, remove the chilli and set to one side for your garnish. Add the onion and garlic and fry until lightly browned. Reduce the heat and add the tomatoes, ginger, turmeric, fenugreek and the chopped chilli. Gently let the ingredients cook down for about 10 minutes to make a thick masala paste.

Add a ladle full of the lentils (dhal) to the masala paste in the frying pan and stir together, then empty all the contents back into the pan with the lentils and stir. It should have the consistency of a thick soup but if it’s too thick, just add a little boiling water and remove from the heat. If you prefer it thicker, just leave it on the heat to reduce until you get the consistency you want. Check the seasoning and add a little salt if required. Stir in the garam masala, coriander and top with the whole chillies to serve.

21ST - 28TH JANUARY SNOW WHITE, AT THE REGENT CENTRE Mirror, mirror on the wall Who is the fairest of us all? Well, obviously, it’s Princess Snow White, looking radiant on her 18th birthday. But that only enrages her wicked and jealous stepmother, Queen Malevolent, who considers herself by far the fairest in the land. And so begins this classic tale as the vengeful Queen embarks on an evil plot to kill Snow White with a poisoned apple and claim her handsome suitor, the Prince, for herself. Luckily, Snow White has plenty of pals to protect her, including her outrageous nurse, Dame Doitall, and the Court’s cheeky ‘Mr.Fix-it’, Handy Andy. And happy endings are assured when the loveable Seven Dwarfs and the cute animals of the forest come to the rescue of a princess in peril. Another fun-filled, brilliantly costumed, song-and-dance extravaganza from the celebrated, award-winning Charity Players. Do come and join them to hiss, boo and cheer. And be sure to book early – it’s the first time HCP has staged Snow White since 1978 and you don’t need a magic mirror to tell you that it’s a likely sell-out. Regent Centre www.regentcentre.co.uk
