MEYERS ESTATE AGENTS CELEBRATE 5TH BIRTHDAY WITH TWO NEW OFFICES Poundbury, Dorset. 15th November 2016. Meyers Estate Agents, the award-winning independent property experts, are opening two new offices to add to their base in Poundbury near Dorchester. The two new franchises are in Poole and Wareham, while a third is planned in Bournemouth in January. As Meyers celebrate their fifth birthday, Director Mark Meyer says: “We’re very optimistic about expanding the business with these franchises and our aim is to repeat the success we’ve enjoyed at our Poundbury office dealing with property in Dorchester, Bridport, Sherborne, Weymouth and Blandford. “We also opened a Lettings Department 18 months ago which is now managing 50

properties. This is driven by our key values of dedication, ethical customer service, imaginative marketing and results.” In the last 12 months Meyers have sold 211 properties (source: rightmove) and this summer they were named Estate Agency of the Year (Best in Dorset) in the Property Sharing Experts Gala Awards. “Our team is experienced, highly motivated and hard-working,” adds Mark. “We want to be calm and considered and it’s always important to be patient, positive and friendly. My vision is to create a new kind of estate agent which is at the heart of the community. This is really important to me, and that’s why we set up the Meyers Community Fund to give back to the community, which has placed so much faith in us.

“So far we’ve donated £30,000 to good local causes like Julia’s House, Weldmar Hospicecare, MenCap, the Air Ambulance and local schools. This is very rewarding and we want to show that as estate agents we can really help people with property and our community.” Dorchester-born Mark runs the agency with his wife Claire and previously worked in Mayfair and Notting Hill in London, then Hampshire where he managed 11 offices for Austin and Wyatt. www.meyersestates.com

CHARITY’S BRAND-NEW RESPITE HOME OFFICIALLY OPENS Diverse Abilities, Dorset’s disability charity, is delighted to announce that its brand-new children’s respite home is officially opened and has been named Lily’s Place. Over a year ago the charity, that supports children and adults with disabilities and their families, launched the Lilypad Appeal and thanks to many local supporters the respite home, formally known as Smithers, has now been renovated and redeveloped to create a brand-new space. Lily’s Place can accommodate additional children with disabilities for respite during the day, at the weekend and in the school holidays and it has been redesigned to focus on the individual needs of every child supported. Brand new children’s bedrooms have been created in a dedicated overnight wing, all on the ground floor, with full hoist systems and are large enough to accommodate all the specialist equipment that many of the children require. There is also a state of the art sensory room, multi-sensory underwater themed bathroom, large playroom and fully accessible garden featuring a soft play

cabin, musical handrail, sandpit and a sensory tunnel. A launch event took place during November and donors to the appeal, families, staff and supporters were invited to the grand opening where ceremonial keys were handed to the Children’s Team. Following the grand opening guests watched a film showing the transformation of the respite home before touring the new building to see how the renovation will benefit the children. Vikki Slade, Capital Appeals Manager at Diverse Abilities, said: “We have been overjoyed with the significant backing we have received since the Lilypad Appeal started and in the past few months we continued to receive a huge amount of generosity from the public to raise our final £35,000. “All in all we have raised £360,000 to redevelop our respite home. Words can’t even express how thankful we are to everyone that has been involved. Without our supporters, it couldn’t have happened.” Many local organisations have made generous donations and spent their time

Motor dealership Breeze Volkswagen officially opened its new van centre on Thursday November 17. The new van centre features five service bays providing customers with all levels of servicing and repairs six days a week, plus MOT and wheel alignment bays and a dedicated parts department. The launch event included music, canapes and drinks. John Corderoy, managing director at Breeze Volkswagen, says: “We were delighted to officially launch the brand new van centre to our customers and colleagues from Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles UK. We are now able to offer customers increased choice from the Volkswagen range, on both new and used vehicles, as well as improved services.” The new Breeze Van Centre is located on Yarrow Road, Poole, adjacent to the Passenger Cars showroom.

volunteering over the past year, of which the charity is very grateful for. Most recently the Lilypad Appeal was one of Tesco’s three charities through their Bags of Help Fund and in the final few weeks before launch many local businesses helped us to finish the respite home by donating their services to the project.

Ask the Expert: Buying property in Lisbon Georgina Reilly, Operations Director Select Resorts Properties Lisbon. The capital and the largest city of Portugal, with its cobbled streets, tantalizing restaurants and brightly coloured buildings, will instantly captivate you. I returned last week from this beautiful city, my fourth visit in a year and every trip delights me further. It has a modern, urban feel with excellent transport links, shops, markets, an active nightlife and Fado houses, but also an array of history with its churches, palaces and castles. The year-round temperate weather means Lisbon is always a vibrant hub. Not just for city lovers though, as within a short drive you will find white sand beaches you might mistake for the Caribbean, such as those on the Troia peninsula. Overseas property investors should investigate this city, if they haven’t already, it’s thriving. A surge of foreign investors flock to Lisbon each year attracted by affordable property prices with lower prices per square meter than most other European cities, including within the prime locations of Lisbon. In addition, the rental returns are strong and easily achieved and buyers are experiencing outstanding rates of capital appreciation as the value of their properties skyrocket. Prices rose 22% in 2015, a trend continuing in 2016. With Savills predicting that property in Lisbon will be one of Europe’s best performing asset class well into the next decade, this is a market on the rise and demand is strong. One of the biggest reasons driving foreign investors is the favourable tax regime. The Non-Habitual Tax Residency Regime (NHR), offers a range of tax benefits to investors looking to manage their financial affairs. This makes Portugal one of the most tax attractive European environments and is drawing in investors from Britain, France, Scandinavia and Belgium to name a few. Those moving to Portugal can be assured of a good standard of living, a country that is part of the EU and offers a stable political and social environment. For families, there are a plethora of private and public international schools, along with two top ranked universities for those wishing to pursue tertiary education. If Lisbon or any other European destination whets your appetite or you would like more information on the NHR regime do contact us. Wherever and whenever you buy abroad, I cannot highlight enough the importance of purchasing through a reputable and credible agent who will guide you through the process before and after and give you trustworthy advice. We at Select Resorts Properties pride ourselves on our knowledge and professionalism; with over 30 years’ experience in selling property and the only UK International Savills Associate office, you truly can Ask The Expert. To find out more contact Select Resorts Properties on 01202 765011 for more details or email properties@selectresorts.co.uk Select Resorts Properties have a range of properties for sale across the world.

ASK THE EXPERT... About Choosing Storage

Steve Webber, Director of Maidmans Moving & Storage Steve has many years’ experience in the moving and storage industry. He offers the following advice about choosing storage facilities. Steve says: “Make sure storage meets your needs, otherwise you could end up with something that is unsuitable or not cost effective. The two types of storage to consider are containerised storage and self-storage. Containerised storage is often cheaper, but you must weigh this up against lack of access to your belongings”. Steve recommends you consider the following points before choosing storage: Location - For regular access to stored belongings, using a facility 50-miles away makes little sense. But, if you will not need access, you may save money using containerised storage outside of your immediate location. Access - Not every self-storage facility is open 24 hours a day, but for most people normal weekday access or access on demand will suffice. Facilities – Security is paramount, including lockable access and cameras. Consider fire protection and insurance. Lastly, “Don’t underestimate good customer service, Maidmans, storage solutions are rated as highly by clients as the moving side of our business”.

It really is down to your personal situation as a Landlord to decide how you want to market your rental property – however, there are some things to consider when deciding what is the best option for you. On a positive side, renting your property furnished may be more attractive to tenants as it will save them money and time having to kit out their new home – this may in turn increase the interest in your property. Although, the flip side of this is that seasoned renters may already have a raft of their own goods to bring with them. In this situation, your agent can guide you and would-be tenants in agreeing what is kept and what is put into storage/re-homed based on what is most convenient for both parties. An unfurnished property may appeal to tenants who are looking to create their own personal style in their home. This can result in a longer-term let as an investment has been made in terms of financial outlay for the items but also a personal attachment. The other positive of this is that there is no onus on you to insure or maintain the furnishings – you will not have to think about wear and tear or damage to your items, which may be quite appealing. The final option is to maintain a level of flexibility and offer the property part-furnished dependant on the tenant’s individual situation – we at Foxes Sales & Lettings have many years of experience, 20 in fact, of working with and on behalf of tenants and landlords to create a long-lasting and mutually beneficial let. 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 away a tasty hamper full of treats– email belen.robbins@foxes.co.uk with the page number that you found Monty on to be entered into the draw. Good Luck!

HOME IMPROVEMENTS

PETS ON THE MOVE Moving house requires a lot of preparation; make sure you consider your pets when making those plans. It can be stressful for everyone involved, including your dog. As well as coping with all of the upheaval during the move, it’ll take weeks for them to get used to a new area and strange smells in the new house. Although you’ll be very busy with little time for them, please bear in mind the following to help make it easier and safer for your dog.

Things to do before the move: Some dogs may become distressed or anxious during the upheaval of packing, so confine your dog to a quiet room where they can rest and be safe and where you do not have to worry about them. Leave packing toys, bedding and other equipment to the last moment so that your dog is comforted by the presence of his familiar things. Do not wash his bedding until a couple of weeks after the move, so that they will have something familiar-smelling in the new house. Make arrangements for your dog to stay with a friend or relative that they feels comfortable with

during the move, as your dog may be upset by strange people coming into his house to do the removal. He will also be safer; if your dog stays with you in the house there is a chance they may be able to escape as doors are likely to be left open. You will also be able to concentrate on the stressful business of moving house without the added worry of looking after your dog. If you do not have any friends or family that can look after him then consider booking them into a boarding kennel for the night. Have a tag made with your name, new phone number (and mobile phone number if possible) and your new address so that it is ready to put onto your dogs collar for the day of the move. If they escape during the move or immediately after, this will increase the chances of getting back to you. If you are planning to move a long distance away and your dog suffers from travel sickness or severe anxiety in the car, talk to your vet about ways to make the journey less stressful for them

Dogs are incredibly adaptable and often take new things in their stride but moving house is stressful for all concerned.

Top Tips: • Consider sending your dog away to friends, family or boarding kennels during the move. Or choose a room or location where your dog can stay safe whilst the move is happening. • Leave the dog’s bedding, toys, food and water bowl to be packed last. • Speak with your vet for advice on reducing stress, including, during the journey if your dog suffers from car sickness. • Attach a new tag to your dog’s collar with your new details, and update the microchip details. • If possible identify and address any fencing issues prior to arriving at the new house. If this is not possible keep your dog on lead in the garden until the fencing can be made secure. • Revisit your house training even with an older dog as they may feel insecure in new surroundings initially

ASK THE EXPERT...

ABOUT EQUITY RELEASE Equity release is fast becoming a popular means of securing additional funds during retirement whilst staying in your own home. HOUSE asked Jordan Tuttle from Homeline Mortgages to explain more. How much cash can I release from my home? This is not a straightforward answer as it will depend on many factors such as the value of your home and any outstanding mortgage or loan secured against the property, your health and your age. An advisor will calculate the amount for you. How old must I be to apply for a lifetime mortgage? You have to be at least 55 years old for a lender to consider your application. What can I use the money for? You can use the money for anything you wish. There are no restrictions on how you spend it. Could I end up owing more than the value of my home? Most modern lifetime mortgages carry a ‘no negative equity guarantee’ which means you will never owe more than your property is worth. Can I stay in my home? Yes, until you either move into care or you die. What happens if I take out a lifetime mortgage in Joint names and one of us dies? The lifetime mortgage only becomes repayable once both applicants have died or both moved into care. Would this extra cash affect my benefits? This is a possibility, some state benefits are means-tested so releasing a lump sum of cash from your home may affect what you are entitled to. Again, ask your adviser. Can I leave an inheritance? Some lenders offer an inheritance protection guarantee which allows you to preserve a portion of your home’s value to leave to your family. Would this debt ever be passed on to my children? No, this debt can never be passed on to your children, the property would be sold and the loan plus accrued interest would be repaid. There will be a fee for mortgage advice. The precise amount will depend upon your circumstances. Our charges are usually up to 1% of the loan This is a lifetime mortgage. To understand the features and risks, ask for a personalised illustration. CHECK THAT THIS MORTGAGE WILL MEET YOUR NEEDS IF YOU WANT TO MOVE OR SELL YOUR HOME OR YOU WANT YOUR FAMILY TO INHERIT IT. IF YOU ARE IN ANY DOUBT, SEEK INDEPENDENT ADVICE.

With a variety of methods and techniques, our soft wash system breaks down algae growth and helps prevent its return. Particularly effective on modern coloured render that shouldn’t be painted or jet washed ie. K-Rend.

FREE LANDLORD ADVICE LINE 01202 298889 Call Lettings Director, Andrew Webb for free, impartial advice on any aspect of letting, tenancies, or property management. Brief market comment – ‘Rental values - Something I always 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’.

Sharon Canning

HELP I’M A LETTING AGENT… GET ME OUT OF HERE… As I write this diary entry, I am at a loss for words (no comments please). The budget along with the Conservative Party have been cruel, unfair and mis-guided towards landlords, property investors and letting agents. What I do not understand is why the chancellor felt the need to incorporate a ban on fees to tenants, into the budget. Letting agents and private landlords are running a business not a charity! Most landlords see their rental income as their pension or future pension. This means they are not going to be a burden on the state come their own pensionable age and they are also helping house tenants who cannot afford to be on the ladder. As for good quality letting agents, we also act for the tenant by ensuring all legislations are being abided by and their rights are adhered to by the landlord. It is total madness, that the government lean heavily on the private rented sector for housing and then penalise them for those seeking to stand on their own two feet! Why penalise landlords, when we have a shortage of properties? I am baffled! The numerous (and I have lost count) to the number of legislations that have been changed and introduced over the last 10 years. As agents, we must make sure we are up to date always by not just reading literature but attending courses - which are expensive. The new tax rules which comes into force from April 2017 where the interest part of the mortgage (and the majority, if not all buy to let mortgages are interest only), will no longer be allowed to be deducted as an expense. All other businesses can deduct the interest part of loans for tax purposes! Stamp Duty has added an extra 3% on second properties, meaning the landlords are being penalised again. If the government are not building properties to accommodate those who cannot get on the ladder, then the private rental sector must be relied on.

Ringwood

Wimborne Bournemouth Poole

What the government fail to see is the costs still need to be met, therefore if the landlord is expected to cover these costs, the rents will go up - so the tenant will still lose out. Martin and Co recently said that 9 out of 10 landlords feel the government is against them. Landlords Barometer say 1 in 4 landlords will sell their properties over the next couple of years. (some are already doing this through our ‘Landlord to Landlord Sales’ national company). Portal stats are showing a slower rental growth for 2016 compared to last year – meaning less properties have been bought. Rant over! I am happy to meet with fellow letting agents to discuss how we go forward from here as a collective. If you are looking to rent, sell, buy or invest then take a look at OUR DOUBLE PAGE SPREAD ON PAGES 64 & 65. Have a good week! Sharon

DREAM KITCHENS & BATHROOMS 8 Steps to the Perfect Bathroom

Decorating today’s bathrooms calls for a sophisticated mix of colours, materials, and hard and soft goods.

1

Think Function First A bathroom is one of the hardest-working spaces in the home. It’s a workstation for preparing for the day ahead and a refuge for resting and recovering from the hectic day behind.

2

Map the Space Plumbing considerations will impact where you place showers and tubs, but you also need to think about daily use when making a bathroom floorplan. The objects used most often should be closest at hand. Even a small bathroom can have little luxuries, such as a seat in the shower, if the space is mapped out efficiently.

3 4

Choose Colours and Motif A bathroom motif, whether coastal or Asian or Victorian, can be simple and straightforward.

Know Your Surfaces When selecting products for the bathroom, such as tile or marble, be sure that you know the inherent qualities and the drawbacks of each material. Shiny floors may not be very slip-resistant; natural materials may have a pitted surface that is more slip-resistant, but also more likely to collect residue.

5

Add Drama with Fixtures Think of plumbing fixtures as the jewellery of the bathroom. Touches of gold in the mirror, fixtures and picture frame bring Old World glamour to this modern home’s.

6

Be Careful with Lighting Consider the appropriate task lighting for sink and shower areas. Keep in mind that fluorescent lighting casts a bluish light as opposed to the yellowish radiance of incandescent bulbs.

7

Mix Soft and Hard Use dashes of fabric and other softer goods to reduce the inherent harshness of many bathroom materials. Anything from towels and shower curtains to window treatments and pieces upholstered in terry cloth can bring a soft touch to a hard space.

Don’t miss…

Special Offers 50% OFF* kitchen units, from the 1st of December till the 31st of December. *Terms and conditions apply, please ask instore for more details

8

Soften with Natural Elements The asymmetrical nature of growing things helps offset the square edges of tiles or marble. Greenery such as in the form of lucky bamboo softens the edges.

LED LIGHTING SPECIALISTS We are fortunate to be living near the coast but there are some disadvantages. The high salt content in the air can be very corrosive to outdoor metallic items such as cars, garden furniture, door furniture and light fittings. One of the advantages of LED lighting is its long lifetimes, up to 30 years for outdoor lighting coming on for just a few hours in the evenings, with this in mind it is important that the housing containing the LED is able to last this long. Less expensive fittings are normally made from powder coated steel and if being made on a tight budget this powder coating can be very thin and will start to break down after just a few years exposing the metal beneath to the elements. The more expensive fittings will be made from Stainless Steel or Anodised Aluminium; both of these are capable of lasting for many years in the harshest of conditions. The outside casing will also be acting as a heatsink for the LED to ensure that it runs at the correct temperature, unfortunately Stainless is a very poor thermal conductor whereas Aluminum is excellent for this job. We have been manufacturing Anodised Aluminium floodlights here at LED-ZIP since we began back in 2008. The bodies are turned from solid aluminium stock by our friends at Cox CNC on the Nuffield estate and then anodised by Dorsetware in Hamworthy, these local friendly suppliers ensure that we get the quality that we can rely on. We have been supplying them to trawlers as deck lights (it doesn’t come much harsher), to the Royal Parks of London to light the Mall and St James Park and to the National Space Centre as well as many local residential gardens of course.

OUTDOOR LIVING

WHAT TO DO IN...

YOUR GARDEN THIS WINTER

With the unpredictable seasons we experience in the UK you should consider if your garden or outdoor space is weather proof and can be enjoyed all year, even during the bleakest months... Extreme weather can have disastrous affects on our outdoor furniture, fences, planters, and plant borders, especially if they are made from wood, as wood can split, splinter, crack and rot in British weather. Also wooden decking and walkways can become dangerously slippery when wet, which makes them a potential death trap - especially for children and the elderly who might not be as steady on their feet. All of our decking and walkway products come as anti-slip as standard! This is a great feature as it means that you can enjoy your garden and outdoor area even in wet weather, without the fear of slipping or falling over. Not only are our products anti-slip, they do not split or splinter, will not rot or decay and are absolutely maintenance free, guaranteeing them to last over 50 years! If you want to ensure that your garden will be ready to use this spring then invest in our longlasting, affordable and durable outdoor products. From benches to walkways, we stock a variety of fantastic outdoor products that will transform the look of your garden and save you money in the long run.

THE PERFECT GIFTS FOR LIFE, NOT JUST FOR CHRISTMAS! With Christmas fast approaching do you find it difficult to buy presents for friends and family? Then why not give them something that they can enjoy for decades, instead of socks, chocolates and other gifts that will only last for a short time? Our outdoor garden products make fantastic gifts, as they last for over 50 years and can be enjoyed by everyone. When you buy a Reformed Plastics’ product you not only invest in a durable product, but one that will not rot, is resistant to insects, bad weather, graffiti and will not splinter. Get someone a gift that will last forever, by personalising any of our product range for those you love!! We have a variety of products available, including benches, picnic tables, planters and play modules which can be customised by choosing from our range of colour options or engraving styles, making beautifully bespoke gifts for friends and family. Just like a customer who requested a ‘Carisbrooke Companion set’ (photographed below) for their grandchild and partner who recently tied

MOTORING

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

VW ATLAS DEBUT Volkswagen has unveiled its new seven-seater Atlas SUV in America, with 2.0 litre or 3.6 VR6 engines, both with 8-speed auto transmission and the option of front or allwheel drive. But there are no plans as yet to market the car in the UK, though VW says the Atlas will be sold in Russia and Middle Eastern markets in 2018. The Atlas opens up an important segment for the brand: midsize SUVs formed a tenth of all new registrations in the USA in 2015. For the first time, Volkswagen’s Atlas now offers a model in this highvolume class in the category between the Tiguan and the Touareg that is fully tailored to American needs - and it is built in Chattenooga, Tennessee.

ROAD TEST: RENAULT MEGANE DYNAMIQUE S NAV The battle for car sales is at its most intense in the family hatchback sector dominated by the likes of the Ford Focus and Volkswagen Golf – but there are other strong contenders with a lot to offer, writes NICK FLETCHER. Among them is the new Renault Megane, which scores well for standard equipment levels, load space and its pleasing driving dynamics. All versions come with alloy wheels, Bluetooth, and airconditioning, with entry level pricing from £16,950. Mid range Dynamique models add sat-nav, parking sensors, reversing camera, climate control, auto lights and wipers and larger 17 inch alloys among additional kit. There’s a choice of petrol engines and two diesels, 1.5-litre and 1.6-litre units. My Dynamique S Nav test model came with the 110 hp 1.5 litre diesel engine and is priced at £20,400. While the 0-60 mph time of 11.3 seconds and top speed of 116mph are not exceptional by class standards, the fuel figure of 76.4 mpg combined is impressive, and coupled with emissions of just 96g/km gives this model ultra-low running costs.

As soon as you get behind the wheel, you find it easy to get a comfortable driving position thanks to multi-adjustable driver’s seat and reach and rake adjustable steering wheel. Underway, this Megane has a smooth agile feel to it and is reassuringly balanced on corners, instilling plenty of driver confidence. Ride quality on smooth surfaces is excellent and only on rutted potholed roads will the Megane begin to feel a little unsettled. The exterior re-styling of the car provides a sporty lowslung look and the bonnet features a larger Renault badge and re-shaped grille which together give the Megane a bolder and more charismatic appearance. In the cabin, there is a smarter, more classy look to the dashboard, which is well-laid out and with controls easier to use than in the previous model. Seating is comfortable and there is space in the rear for all but the tallest adults. Load space is important to family car buyers and here the Megane scores well for practicality. The boot is a boxy shape and holds 405 litres, and the rear seats fold to boost capacity to 1,129 litres. Overall, the new Megane underlines its credentials as a significant contender in the family-hatch sector.

REVISED MITSUBISHI ASX

142

Mitsubishi’s ASX crossover model gets a sleek new look and revised interior, with prices starting at £15,999. The updated ASX gets a shark-fin antenna, revised seat cushions, new seat upholstery across the range and a new “Lightning Blue” colour option. Variant names in the new ASX range have also been changed, returning to the straightforward ASX 2, ASX 3, ASX 4 and ASX 5 format, and there have been changes to the trim levels too. The engine range is carried over from the outgoing ASX, with a 117hp petrol engine driving the front wheels via a fivespeed manual gearbox; a 114hp turbo diesel engine with a six-speed manual gearbox (front-wheel drive on ASX 3/ondemand four-wheel drive on ASX 4) and a 150hp turbo diesel combined with on-demand four-wheel drive and a six-speed automatic transmission as standard. The 1.6 turbo diesel with front-wheel drive produces CO2 emission of just 119g/km and is capable of 61.4 mpg combined. The 1.6-litre petrol engine produces emissions of 135g/km and is capable of 48.7 mpg combined. The Mitsubishi ASX 2 is the entry-model and standard kit includes 16-inch alloy wheels; front fog lamps; air conditioning; Bluetooth, USB port with iPhone compatibility; multifunction colour instrument display; electric windows front and rear; rear privacy glass, Hill Start Assist and seven airbags.

FROST ALERT

NEW MINI COUNTRYMAN MINI has launched an all-new Countryman model,larger, more powerful, with upgraded equipment - and a plug-in hybrid added to the range. Prices start at £22,645. The new MINI Countryman is the biggest and most versatile model to be launched in the brand’s 57-year history. With its larger external dimensions, and increases in space throughout the cabin and luggage area, it offers occupants greater comfort. Useful new features include electric tailgate control with touch-free opening and options including a fold-down picnic bench at the rear. MINI says the deisgn fuses familiar MINI styling with the tough look of a crossover thanks to the extended ground clearance, large wheel arches and short overhangs. For the first time MINI is offering a plug-in hybrid model with the new MINI Cooper S E Countryman ALL4. Drawing from expertise gleaned from across the BMW Group, this

new hybrid features a turbocharged petrol engine and an electric motor, reducing fuel consumption to 134.5 mpg yet also enabling a 0-60 mph time of just 6.9 seconds. The rest of the new MINI Countryman line-up is powered by an all-new range of engines sourced from the latest MINI TwinPower Turbo generation. With between 136 – 192 hp, the new MINI Countryman can sprint from 0-60 mph in as little as 7.2 seconds, while fuel consumption reaches 64.2 mpg and CO2 emissions drop as low as 113 g/km. It is available with both manual and Steptronic gearboxes and with frontand all-wheel drive. Reflecting customer demand for high-end features, equipment levels on the new MINI Countryman have been bolstered versus the outgoing model. Additions to the standard equipment list include Satellite Navigation System, Bluetooth, and Cruise Control.

The temperature is gradually dropping and safety group IAM ROadSmart is reminding drivers that frost is on the way. Here are some tips to prepare motor users for the winter from IAM RoadSmart’s head of driving and riding standards Richard Gladman: • Keep the windscreen clear. Try to get scratches, abrasions and chips fixed as colder temperatures can worsen the damage. • Keep the windscreen washer topped up with a more concentrated screen wash mix to ensure it doesn’t freeze in action. • Search in the garage for last year’s de-icing spray or better still invest in a new one • Check your tyres. 1.6mm may be the legal limit but anything under 3mm will see a potential fall off in grip and braking performance. • Set up a pre-winter check list. List things that need to be checked such as the car battery, bulbs, wiper blades and electrics. • Start to plan for the really bad weather with a survival kit in the boot. Spare clothes, a torch, mobile phone charger, some emergency rations such as water and chocolate and a tow rope and shovel to help yourself and others.

THE NEW MERCEDES-AMG MODELS On sale in mid-January, the most powerful Mercedes E-Class models ever - E 63 4MATIC+ and E 63 S 4MATIC+. Prices have not yet been announced. Power comes for a 612 hp 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine giving 0 – 60 mph in 3.4 seconds.Nine-speed sports transmission is combined with a wet start-off clutch for the first time, and the new AMG Performance 4MATIC+ all-wheel drive system can deliver variable torque for optimum traction. The interior features sports seats and performance sports steering wheel with a flattened bottom section, Touch Control and electroplated shift paddles. Various connectivity and Intelligent Drive functions and options are available. These includes semi-automated driving with the DRIVE PILOT, which can support the driver during “disagreeable routine tasks such as driving in heavy traffic.” Available for around a year after the market launch, the E 63 S 4MATIC+ special “Edition 1” is availoable. Complementing the paint finish in night black magno, dynamic stripes on the side sill panels emphasise the elongated side view and underline the forwards thrust of the new performance saloon. Added to this are new AMG 20inch forged wheels in matt black with high-gloss polished rim flange. AMG Performance seats in black nappa leather with yellow topstitching are featured, along with performance sports steering wheel, door armrests, centre console, AMG floor mats and IWC-designed analogue clock with yellow topstitching or accents.

PR Man About Town Holidays are coming! Director of one of the South’s leading PR Agencies, Darren Northeast PR, shares news and upcoming events in Dorset and beyond. Hello and thank you for casting your eyes upon the latest ‘PR Man About Town’ column… would you believe this edition marks the first year anniversary of this humble little feature! Whilst the leaves have mostly gone from the trees and the rest have lost their colour, Bournemouth is looking particularly bright and beautiful, bedecked in seasonal decorations. Alongside the bustling business activity that we are currently seeing, the town is a hive of festive fun, with plenty to enjoy in the coming months. This November has marked an exciting period of growth for DNPR. We were recently thrilled to welcome a new member, Charlie Rose, onto the dream team. Having impressed us greatly, Charlie has been freelancing with us for a year. She now joins us on a part-time basis bringing a multitude of experience working at a senior level for national charities and high-profile campaigns. I am also excited to report that the DNPR empire is growing! Matt, our Senior Account Manager, has recently traveled to the world’s largest marine equipment trade show, METS, in Amsterdam for one of our marine industry clients. I have also been busy crisscrossing the country, visiting London and Norwich to meet with potential new clients. With UK-wide opportunities on the horizon, 2017 is looking to be a very promising year for the company. With Bournemouth’s present transformation into a veritable winter wonderland, many local businesses will be welcoming an influx of eager shoppers. Whilst you are out doing the Christmas shopping, why not try eating somewhere new this season? New eateries in Bournemouth include Ojo Rojo, Steam Vintage Tea Rooms, The Skinny Kitchen, Velo Domestique, Yo! Sushi and The Stable. You are simply spoiled for choice… Then, if you have the time, it’s also well worth experiencing the dazzling light installations that are winding through the lower gardens. Once you have passed the ice rink, I advise visiting the pop-up Alpine bar for a warming glass of mulled wine! As always, thanks for taking the time to cast your eyes over this month’s edition of ‘PR Man About Town and here’s a pre-emptive “Merry Christmas!” to you all from us here at DNPR!

Students Learn Secrets to Acing Interviews with Law Firms Legal recruitment expert Sofie Scott has been providing her expertise to Legal Practice Course students at Bournemouth University, helping to prepare them for entering competitive legal careers. Sofie has held a number of realistic interviews with law students on their Mock Assessment Day. With 94.4% of all candidates that she has sent to interview successfully offered a position, Sofie Scott, the Managing Director of ASH Elite, was ideally placed to provide feedback and advice. Benefiting from her experience, students were given the opportunity to develop the essential interview skills needed to not only find work placements following graduation but lead successful legal careers. Representing a fictional law firm, Sofie held 20-minute mock interviews with students. This was followed by 5-minute presentations, featuring feedback on their interview performances. Sofie was also available to review student’s CVs, providing expert advice on grabbing the attention of a law firm and standing out from the crowd. Sofie Scott, comments: “It was a real pleasure to work with Bournemouth University LPC students on their Mock Assessment Day and I was delighted to meet a number of talented individuals. Having worked closely with a large number of prestigious law firms, I was able to give an expert insight into what these firms look for when taking on graduates. I believe it is very important for students to gain this kind of knowledge, giving them the skills needed to prosper in their future law careers.” For more information about ASH Elite, visit: www.ashelite co.uk 145

‘SOME CHEFS SHOULD SMILE MORE!’ He’s been branded one of the trailblazers of new British cooking, but at the heart of Glynn Purnell’s success is his refusal to take himself too seriously. If he’s not cracking jokes and reeling off witty anecdotes, the ‘Yummy Brummie’ is referring to himself as the Roger Federer of Birmingham’s imploding culinary scene. Having achieved his childhood goal it seems Purnell, who today runs the Michelin-starred Purnell’s restaurant and Purnell’s Bistro in Birmingham’s thriving city centre, has plenty to smile about. His latest venture is the brilliantly-titled cookbook Rib Ticklers & Choux-Ins, a follow-up to 2014’s Cracking Yolks & Pig Tales, and a tome he says was inspired by the more down-to-earth dishes served at his bistro, or “takeaway food at home”. Written with trademark wit, chapters range from ‘This little piggy went to market’ to ‘A moment on

the lips’. It’s infused with brunch, fish, meat and knockout dessert recipes, and peppered with yarns about perfecting his skills through years of reading women’s magazines at the dentist, and why he has such a vendetta against sprouts. Revered for his long-standing culinary commitment to University College Birmingham and their Young Chef of the Year competition, plus hosting duties on BBC One’s Saturday Kitchen and ITV’s newlyannounced Secret Chef, due next year, can he see himself finding time to expand the brand - perhaps for the Purnell juniors? “I never say never,” he retorts with a glint. “I think other cities are quite daunting, because everybody knows of me [in Birmingham]. If I went to London, would I just get swallowed up? “I’m going to keep moving forward and carry on being the chirpy Brummie I always am!” By Gemma Dunn, Press Association

Fancy dishing up some of Birmingham’s finest at home? Here are three recipes from Purnell’s new book to get stuck in to...

Ingredients

Sweet Spicy Sticky Ribs (Serves 7)

2tbsp vegetable oil 1 onion, thinly sliced 2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced 4 cloves 1/2 cinnamon stick 1tsp black onion seeds 1tsp ground ginger 1 rack of pork belly ribs, cut into individual ribs 150g caster sugar 50ml white wine vinegar 50ml dark soy sauce 1tbsp (large) tomato ketchup 2 medium-hot chillies, roughly chopped 1tbsp chopped coriander Squeeze of lime juice

Method Heat the oil in a large saucepan over a medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook until softened but only lightly coloured. Add the cloves, cinnamon, onion seeds and ginger to the pan and then add the ribs. Cover all the ingredients with two litres of cold water (or enough to cover the ribs), then simmer for 30-40 minutes until the meat is tender. Drain the ribs (you can reserve the cooking liquid to make a sauce for another dish). Heat a large frying pan, add the sugar, vinegar and soy sauce and boil the mixture until reduced to a thick consistency. Add the ketchup to the pan, then stir in the ribs, coating well with the glaze. Add the chillies, coriander and a squeeze of lime juice, then serve. The ribs can be served with egg noodles or jasmine rice.

A little tip - instead of ribs, buy pork belly on the bone. That way you get free ribs and probably the best part of the pig.

Ingredients

Method

150g digestive biscuits, crushed ½tsp ground cinnamon ½tsp ground ginger 80g salted butter 400g soft cream cheese 50ml double cream 1 vanilla pod, split lengthways and seeds scraped out 150g white chocolate, melted 1 tablespoon brandy (or other brown spirit, such as dark rum) 150g dark chocolate, melted For the banana ‘non’ ice cream: 3 ripe bananas Splash of banana liqueur 1tbsp brown sugar 300ml whipping cream, whipped to soft peaks

Mix together the biscuits, cinnamon and ginger in a mixing bowl. Melt the butter in a saucepan, then pour over the crushed biscuit mixture and mix together well.

Spoon the chocolate mixtures, alternating one at a time, onto the biscuit base, then take a spoon and swirl the mixture to create a marbled effect. Leave to set in the fridge for two hours.

Line the base of a 20-22cm flan tin with the biscuit mixture, pressing it down firmly using the back of a spoon, cover and chill in the fridge for two to four hours until firm.

For the banana ‘non’ ice cream, put the bananas in a blender and whiz to a smooth puree. Mix in the banana liqueur and sugar, then fold in the whipped cream.

Divide the cream cheese between two separate bowls. Add the cream and vanilla seeds to one of the bowls and mix together, then fold the melted white chocolate into the cream cheese and vanilla mixture.

HOW TO STAY (A BIT) FIT AND HEALTHY OVER CHRISTMAS

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

Its such an amazing time of year with lots of food, alcohol and partying. It’s fantastic to have a break from it all and spend precious time with family and friends. However, why do so many of us end up feeling so guilty, putting on loads of weight, feeling unhealthy and signing up to a new gym with promises of “that will never happen again” in the first week of January? How about having a Christmas you can enjoy and not feel guilty about for months afterwards. I’m not saying keep up intense exercise all the way through the festive period (don’t get me wrong if this is what you want to do and your bodies used to it then fair play carry on) but a lot of us don’t have the time and loose the motivation over Christmas. So I thought I would give a few little tips to keep us active and feeling healthy. There is so much food around at this time of year, wherever you go there is chocolate, mince pies, nuts and lets not count how many massive roasts we have and buffet style teas. We can’t avoid all this and nibble on a beetroot salad in the corner, just think about what you are going to eat and make slightly more informative decisions. Have that massive roast on Christmas day but try and fill up on meat/fish and vegetables whilst cutting down on potatoes and sauces. You can have that little pig in blanket but you just don’t have to have 6 of them. Try no to feel forced to have another

helping if your still quite full. Eat slowly and wait for your food to digest properly. This way you might actually enjoy it more too!

the kids to school you could come and try one of those. Imagine having your hours work out done by 7:30! Plenty of time left to wrap, shop and visit friends and family.

You can have pudding but not with half a tub of cream and if you can’t decide then consider a small portion of two things but make sure it’s not a normal portion of both. You should never feel like you are holding back but by the same token you don’t need to make yourself feel ill.

After your big meals try playing more active family games you could try a squat hold competition with Nan. These things actually can be fun with family and in the festive atmosphere. Also the kids definitely need to burn off some of the sugar they’ve had!

Try going for a brisk walk with the family after a large meal as it is great to get out in the fresh air, chase the kids and dog around, even act like a kid yourself that will burn some calories!

Try a family trip ice skating or do a Christmas run there are plenty for charity going on in December so you can work out and feel really good about it and you actually burn more calories out in the cold.

You don’t have to stop exercise altogether. It is hard to fit it in but rather than doing that 2 hour session down the gym go for a swim or a run for 30 minutes make it intense but it will be worth the feeling afterwards knowing you managed to fit in your exercise and yet can still make it to Auntie Pauline’s for a little tipple.

Try avoiding creamy drinks and liqueurs like baileys also be careful with mulled wine that can be quite high in calories. Prosecco for a toast is a good option and a short with a low calorie mixer is always a better choice. Try and keep well hydrated throughout the season (with water)!

Gyms can often reduce opening hours over the holidays which may mess with your schedule, but they are usually good at doing a mixture of classes with a party atmosphere. These are good for getting into the spirit of things and still having a good work out. Don’t forget our morning bootcamp classes at the YMCA in Bournemouth Westover road starting at 6:30, if you are off work or don’t have to take

If the worse comes to the worse and you put on a few pounds over Christmas just come and see a friendly face at Fitter Than Fit in the new year. We will have lots of offers for you and hopefully some new classes to add to our time table in 2016. Check our timetable for Christmas opening times on fitterthanfit.co.uk. Hope you all have a fit healthy and happy Christmas and New Year from all at the Fitter Than Fit Team xx

DO YOU HAVE THE ABILITY TO RUN A VERY SUCCESSFUL BEAUTY SALON AND CONTINUE ITS SUCCESS? 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. This is a completely unique opportunity for the right person to acquire a fast growing business with tremendous scope to increase it further in the years ahead. If you possess the motivation and drive to succeed, have capital available to you in the region of £68000.00, and have the desire to earn a high level of income in return for your hard work then we would like to hear from you.

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, 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

Calling all landlords with student accommodation!!!

McConnell Property Group created mystudentpod.com in 2013 to deal specifically with, and specialise in, the letting of student accommodation. We have been letting student accommodation for 15 years and are now a market leader with the experience and knowledge most of our competitors lack. Our many new processes allow us to return deposits, pay rents and deal with maintenance quicker. Our little maintenance office in Heathwood Road puts us on the doorstep of our accommodation allowing us to react quicker, investigate issues ourselves and save landlords money. With 64% of our accommodation let by January last year we need more quality student properties to meet the ever growing need. By being the obvious choice for students we have a high volume of students walk through our doors allowing us to achieve the highest possible income for our landlords.

If you have a student property, or a property you feel may be suitable for student accommodation, call Phil Taylor on 01202 533666 for an informal and friendly chat.
