YOUhome is delighted to announce the expansion of their residential property sales and letting business through the acquisition of Berkeleys, an independent estate agency based in Canford Cliffs, Poole. Berkeleys provides residential estate sales agency services to the Canford Cliffs area, where it has been established for over 20 years, specialising in prime residential property sales across the BH13 and BH14 areas. Canford Cliffs is well-known for it’s proximity to Sandbanks. It retains a unique village community atmosphere and is a popular

retirement area. It is also a favoured destination with second home owners, many of whom are London based. “This acquisition of an established and wellrespected local business will enable YOUhome to build our presence across the South Coast,” says YOUhome Joint Managing Director, Adrian Black. “Berkeleys will retain its existing trading name but will also benefit from YOUhome’s information-rich marketing, web presence, technology systems and London links.” “Our vision for YOUhome is to continue to grow the

of complete integrity that I too have always sought. I am looking forward to assisting YOUhome with the continuity of Berkeleys – but also to playing more golf and to pursue other ventures.” Since opening in Bournemouth in late 2007, YOUhome has built a strong presence across the local area and was recognised in 2010 when they were presented with a “Highly Commended” estate and letting agent award from the Dorset Property and Architectural Awards, supported by the Bournemouth Echo.

Rug Revival

With Christmas just over with, there is rarely little extra money in the household budget for radical interior transformations. However, even a small investment in an accessory such as a rug can radically update a tired room, or simply provide the finishing touch to a makeover project. A rug is a great way to add warmth to a wooden or tiled floor, but it can also act as a focal point regardless of the floor covering. Whatever your reason for buying a rug, there are a few points to consider before making the final decision.

43


One size dOesn’t fit all The most important factor to consider is whether or not your chosen rug will fit suitably within the allotted space. Make sure you measure up in the shop and check it will fit in your space at home.

What, Where? If the rug is for a practical purpose such as in the entrance hall to prevent outside dirt and grit from being spread throughout the home, then buy budget. It makes absolutely no sense spending hundreds of pounds that will get worn and damaged very quickly. If the rug is simply to add some style and wow factor to a room, then don’t just stick to a funky pattern or design. Consider a circular rug inside of the usual rectangular shape. This will be certain to attract lots of positive attention from guests. We especially love the cut out circular rugs from Bodie and Fou.

extras Rug pads are essential for underneath a rug that will sit on wooden or tiled floor. They will help the rug stay in place without becoming a slipping hazard. They can also help to prevent noise and protect the floor underneath.

Botanica Rug. With its beautiful cut outs of leaves, birds and butterflies, the Botanica rug designed by Selina Rose, is a beautiful piece of design which will add instant style and colour to your home. £450, Bodie and Fou, www.bodieandfou.com

STILL A RAY OF HOPE

At the end of 2011 the Government announced a cut in the Solar PV tariff earlier than expected. The proposed cut off date for the original tariff was set at December 12th 2011 rather than 31st March 2012. This meant that any Solar PV installation after this date would be subject to the new tariff of 21p per unit. The decision sparked a frenzy of activity to install and commission all new PV systems by midnight of the 11th December 2011. However, on reflection, the decision was not really as bad as it first seemed. Throughout 2011 the cost of the equipment had been relentlessly falling to the point where some clients were achieving a payback period of under 5 years. This situation was never envisaged by the Government, the original proposals being an 8-10% return. Current trends indicate further reductions in the price of equipment to the extent that even with the new tariffs, the return on a 4kW system would be approximately 10% tax free with a full return on your investment still possible in well under 10 years.

Green With Envy Renewable energy is still the place to be seen with the Government proposing the “Green Deal” due to be rolled out later this year. It will open the door for those who currently consider renewable energy out of their financial reach. The Green Deal will allow people to have a renewable installation without having to stump up the capital. The Green Deal provider (Selected Private Companies) will front the cost with repayments being made through savings on consumers energy bills. The finer details are still to be set but this will, it is hoped, encourage more people to consider renewable energy solutions as a way forward, helping reduce energy bills and cut carbon emissions.

Solar Thermal There are two types of solar panel, flat plate and evacuated tubes. The initial cost of evacuated tubes is around 15% more, however they provide more efficiency for your money and a higher payback. Solar panels are able to provide 50 – 60% of your homes annual hot water demand or up to 15% of your homes heating needs. By

installing solar panels it is estimated that carbon dioxide emissions are reduced by around 400 kg per year. Solar panel collectors absorb solar energy from the sun, not just direct sunlight, (so they will even work when the weather is overcast!) A liquid medium is then heated and pumped round a closed system between the panel and the coil in a cylinder, This is all done electronically via a solar controller. A boiler or other renewable energy system will then provide any back up as needed.

Wind turbines Although the UK is home to 40% of Europe’s total wind energy, only 0.5% of that power is currently being tapped into. But before you invest in a wind turbine, remember not all sites are suitable and they are best located on a mast or tower, ideally on a hill. Wind turbines are good for homes with an annual average wind speed of six metres per second or more. Distance from nearby buildings, trees or hills that might decrease the wind coming your way is also key and you’ll need to take note of local planning requirements, as permission is usually required 77


prior to installation. Don’t be surprised if some of your NIMBY (Not In My Back Yard) neighbours raise an objection! As wind is free, you can start saving money on your fuel bills straight away, but start-up costs are high and there is ongoing annual maintenance. In general, wind turbines are better suited to commercial and not domestic installation

new generation of log burning boilers are being introduced, designed to run domestic heating systems and have the added visual benefit of seeing a wood burner in your sitting room. Many individuals are showing interest in these new stoves either as a stand alone system or possibly combined with a heat pump to supplement the system when you do not wish to light the stove.

Air and Ground source heat pumps

Combined heating and hot water systems

You can heat your home by tapping into the heat below the ground with a ground source heat pump. A pump transfers heat from the ground into your home, heating either the central heating or the domestic hot water in your house. You’ll need a large space in your garden to fit a ground loop (to heat your home), or a borehole down to an aquifer. Both these systems have a relatively high capital cost but benefit from a high constant co-efficient of performance (COP) i.e. the relation between the amount of energy you put into the system compared with the amount you get out. e.g. COP of 4 = 1kW electricity consumed gives 4kW heat output. Air source heat pumps are suitable for most domestic installations and take energy from the ambient air. In many cases Air Source Heat Pumps can replace existing boilers. The capital cost is much lower than for ground source and COP’s can still be in the region of 3 making this a more viable option for most homes.

New heat stores are coming onto the market allowing several different heat sources to connect to the heating system, often designed to use the lowest carbon input first and automatically adding other inputs as demand on the system increases. These allow a great deal of flexibility in choice of fuels and can offer significant savings in energy running costs. Speak to your local installer for more details on bespoke systems.

Biomass and Wood Burning Boilers Particularly in rural areas, biomass boilers burning wood pellets or wood chips are becoming more popular. These can be fed manually or automatically and controlled by programmers in much the same way as an oil or LPG boiler. A

78

System controls Basic system controls can be very effective and can range from thermostatic radiator valves and room thermostats to time clocks and programmers. Increasing numbers of sophisticated heating controls can now be added to existing installations which can make significant savings on energy bills. These use time and temperature control together with Weather Compensation to save energy. The addition of weather compensation can save up to 20% on fuel bills by instructing the boiler to only produce water at a range of temperatures necessary to maintain the building at a desired comfort level depending on the outside weather conditions.

Heat recovery Modern insulation standards and draught proofing in homes require warm moist air to be removed from so called wet areas, e.g. kitchens, bathrooms, shower rooms and utility rooms. Rather than just using extractor fans which will remove the moisture and heat to the outside, a heat recovery unit can be installed which will control moisture levels but retain over 90% of the heat that would otherwise be wasted. They also introduce preheated fresh air into the habitable rooms and cool air for summer ventilation.

Try it out If you’ve baulked at the start-up costs of making your home greener, you’ll be pleased to hear that along with the Green Deal another proposed scheme will be the RHI (Renewable Heat Incentive). With the anticipated introduction date of October 2012 for domestic users there is little excuse for people not to get involved. The RHI will include Air Source and Ground Source Heat Pumps, Solar Thermal (hot water) and Biomass Boilers. It will provide a tariff payment similar to the existing PV tariff where you will receive a payment per kW of heat that is produced from your chosen renewable heating system. This should generate a return on your investment of up to 8%. There are as always, conditions attached to the scheme, mainly in connection with insulation levels within the property but this all makes sense in order to generate good returns and savings. Exact details of the scheme are yet to be finalised but are expected shortly. Editorial by Caroline Southard Low Carbon Energy

CumberbatCh deteCts he's on to a winner

W

ith the eagerly anticipated second series of Sherlock recently started on BBC One. Kate Whiting went on set to meet stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, and finds out how they're coping with the success of the first series. A stench of sour milk pervades the flat, in which a neon yellow smiley face is daubed over oldfashioned flock wallpaper. On the mantelpiece, a pile of letters is stabbed through with a penknife, and near the door there's an African hunting spear in the umbrella stand. Welcome to 221b Baker Street, the most famous address in London and home to Britain's most famous detective, one Sherlock Holmes. But we're not in London. We're in an enormous studio in Cardiff. And Sherlock, alias the very affable Benedict Cumberbatch, 35, is holding court alongside his sidekick Dr Watson, also known as Martin Freeman, 40. It's summer and the pair are part-way through filming three new 90-minute episodes of the 21st century update of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's classic detective stories. They're still reeling from the success of the first series which, thanks to modern technology, was pretty much instantaneous. When the first episode, A Study In Pink, aired last July, Cumberbatch remembers sitting with creators Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat, plus Moffat's wife and producer Sue Vertue, in the Moffats' garden. "All the twittery stuff started to happen," he says. "We were trending, which is apparently brilliant, and by the end of it I thought there would be people abseiling into the garden just to have a peek at us because this thing had exploded that night. It was thrilling. "There was an amazing feeling of love for it. Of course, it had its detractors and it would be weird if it didn't, but the feeling was one of great goodwill." The following day, Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt namechecked Sherlock in a discussion at the House of Commons about the licence fee, saying Freeman and Cumberbatch "did a brilliant job". The series went on to be nominated for seven TV Baftas, winning three for best series, editing and best supporting actor for Freeman ("It was just a very nice cherry," he says modestly), while Cumberbatch now has a whole army of online fans. It's also gone global, winning Emmy nominations and two very high-profile fans in directors Steven Spielberg, who cast Cumberbatch in his film version of War Horse, and Peter Jackson, who shifted filming on The Hobbit in New Zealand so that Freeman could make more Sherlock. "He said, 'We want this to work', so he put the film in chunks so that I could do this," says Freeman, his cheeky smile giving way to a look of astonishment. Despite the high level of expectation that will greet the new adaptations, kicking off on New

Year's Day, the team are showing no fear. "Why wait?" says Moffat, confidently. "It doesn't get better than these stories." A Scandal In Belgravia, based on Conan Doyle's first short story A Scandal In Bohemia, opens where fans left their heroic duo - at a swimming pool, with Watson wrapped in a belt of explosives and Moriarty's (Andrew Scott) men training guns on them. After escaping the deadly pickle, the pair are then engaged by Sherlock's brother Mycroft (Gatiss) to procure some rather compromising images from high-class escort Irene Adler (Lara Pulver) - a lady who fans of the original stories will know Sherlock finds hard to resist. "The more I think about it, the more I start going, 'Oh s**t, yes we are doing three really huge stories'," says Cumberbatch. "But while I'm responsible for giving my Holmes, it's a huge collaborative effort. It as much levels the responsibility at the script writers, the director and everybody else acting in it." Gatiss and Moffat, self-confessed "proper geeky Sherlock fans", came up with the idea for the adaptations while working on Doctor Who. They were chuffed to be given the thumbs-up from the Sherlock Holmes Society, with one member telling Gatiss it was "the best screen depiction he'd ever seen". The relationship between the calculating genius Holmes and the reassuringly more human Watson is central to the series - and it's mirrored by the off-screen friendship of Freeman and Cumberbatch, who met for the first time on set. "We rub along pretty well, me and Ben," says Freeman. "We have our ups and downs," adds Cumberbatch, laughing. "Hopefully I'm less of a pain in the arse than Holmes. But we get on very well, we're not living in the same flat or anything, that would be weird, but I adore him and his family, and he's a rock of support." Apart from the double act, it's Holmes's deductions that really capture the audience's imagination. "I think people love the idea of someone who's that hard-nosed and purposeful," says Cumberbatch. "A man who's slightly sociopathic, who has the ability to read the world as a continual series of linking adventures and potential outcomes." The actor also admits he enjoys the chance to be devastatingly rude. "Because you can't be in real life," he explains. "That's one of the thrills of watching him. We love the outsider who kicks against bureaucracy, is impatient with mediocrity and strives for a level of brilliance which is achievable through hard work. "He's not a superhero, he makes superhuman effort, but it costs him" - a hint that in this series Holmes could be heading for a fall as his list of enemies grows longer. When the second series started shooting, the actor admits it took him a while to find his character again. "I felt like I was impersonating something I'd seen on telly last year. It felt a bit odd that it now had this life outside what we'd done in front of a camera." He also found it a struggle to match the detective's frenetic pace. "Sometimes there are days when I have to neck a couple of espressos, but others it has to be more of a maintained energy, so a coffee high is a terrible thing. It's great for one take but not if you fluff a line, which I'm bound to do. "I'm very lazy in comparison to Holmes and I operate at a far lower speed. His kind of neurotic, thin, high-end pitch is not me." Freeman is already looking forward to a third

series. "It's the first thing I've done in a while that I've thought, 'I'd like to do more of this'. This has legs because the people who put it together know the original stories inside out. "I'd be the first to say, 'Let's just stop now', because then no one can take it away from you, but I honestly think and hope that it goes on for as long as it's right to."

The original sTories -

These three Victorian tales from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle have inspired the three new episodes of Sherlock. A scandal in Bohemia In the first Sherlock Holmes story ever published, the crown prince of Bohemia calls on the detective to obtain an incriminating photograph of himself and Irene Adler (an American opera singer) so that his family will allow his upcoming wedding to take place. Adler would go on to appear in further stories. The hound of the Baskervilles The third of Conan Doyle's four Holmes novels, and arguably the most famous. An aristocratic family in Devon is plagued by a supernatural, murderous hound after a descendant was killed pursuing a young girl across the moors. Holmes's help is enlisted when the death of Charles Baskerville rekindles fears that the hound remains at large. The final problem Holmes's 'final' adventure begins with the introduction of his nemesis Professor Moriarty. A plot weaved by Holmes to bring Moriarty down leads to a climactic meeting at the Reichenbach Falls in Switzerland, from which neither return. Public uproar forced Conan Doyle to resurrect Holmes a decade later in The Adventure Of The Empty House.

The year ahead in the stars By Cassandra Nye

Aries

Taurus

Gemini

This is a year of movement and expansion. Any travel is likely to be in short spurts as you are so busy. Some of it may be in order to work or otherwise improve finances. You alternate between wanting to live for the moment and having a desire for long-term security. You should aim for a mixture of both. Spring brings an urge to throw out old things and buy new. Make some cash on your rejects and try to buy less than you throw away! Friends and loved ones take up the happiest times in the summer, with a possible new member around August. When things go well and you feel content, Aries, there is the tendency to overspend. Also at this time take care of your health by having a good diet and exercise regime. It could be much more fun with a friend! Save a bit for a demanding autumn. This is also a time for romance or even the rekindling of an old love. Something that you take on board from this could turn you in a new and interesting direction. Perhaps something that you have always wanted to do or explore becomes a possibility. Rise above or avoid petty politics. Give yourself the chance to be honest to your beliefs and to the needs of those around you.

A slow and even quiet start is deceptive, for this year is a bit of a slow burner at first. However, once the sparks start to fly, enjoyment grows. It all begins with a willingness to make certain commitments both to yourself and others. A degree of contentment in the spring brings stability and a hunger for forward planning. Keeping active at this time avoids health problems associated with complacency. Get your check-ups, eat well. Finances start to bloom with the flowers in the summer but be sure to save some for larger family demands later. Don't throw anything away that you can give to others, perhaps through a charity shop. Giving in general is a part of this time and others will appreciate you for it. As the autumn comes, concentrate on relationships and improving them. Those that cannot be improved may need to take up less (or maybe none) of your time. There is success in working with others, especially in your neighbourhood. Winter can be looked forward to as a time to reassess and make fresh plans. Trust your instincts when it comes to any need to change direction, especially with your work.

There is a kind of glow about you as this year begins, Gemini. A feeling of fun seems to follow you everywhere, even at work. You find easier ways of approaching tasks and may even invent something useful. Certainly your mind is sharp. Spring is all about working with others and making rapid progress. Charities may strike a chord with you. Here you may find a calling. As the summer begins, cash flow should improve. Save some and also use some for any health improvements. Be on time with check-ups and resist junk food when busy. At this time you are a magnet for friends and relatives. This is because of your enthusiasm and optimism, something that others can lack at this time. Extra responsibilities come with the autumn but then so does extra income. Enjoy success and learning new skills but also give yourself time to relax. Romance will be strengthened and new love may come through from the past. Do not be afraid to explore your feelings, but be honest with yourself about your needs in the longer term. Be flexible but determined in the winter, when rewards for hard work show themselves. Avoid gambling but go for progress in finances, including savings.

March 21 - April 20

Overall: An exciting, loving and progressive year. Relationships bring contentment. 1

April 21 - May 21

Overall: A refreshing, challenging and satisfying year. Changes bring knowledge.

May 22 - June 21

Overall: A challenging, rewarding and personally contented year. Life brings opportunities.


Cancer

Leo

Virgo

An early focus on growing and learning could see you travel. This may be physically or through books and media. Either way, this spring, your horizons are expanding and giving you a new perspective. You think about things that you never did before. There is more questioning of long-held beliefs. Much of these remain the same but with a lighter touch. Around this time you meet someone who gives your career and confidence a boost. The warm summer atmosphere also heralds a softening of attitudes. Looking to the past and present, you gain from experiences and learn to use them in the future. A loving period with a partner brings the desire to move or improve your home. There could be big changes in this area and a great deal of joy. The likelihood of a new member of the family appearing is strong and a joy. People come and go having made their own contribution. Romance continues to delight in the autumn, bringing with it the possibility of a new arrival. Children, even as adults, need your help but can bring fun and contentment. Gently sliding into winter, you find a mellowness. Now you are able to decide exactly what and who you want in your life. Real progress!

The year starts with many changes, mostly relating to work and career. Opportunities are there for the taking. The trick is in taking the right ones. Travel is likely but could conflict with domestic life. Communication is the key here. It is a lucky spring, bringing as it does the chance to improve finances and status. Enjoy your sudden popularity but also put some cash aside for rainy days (likely in the winter). Promises at work may be unreliable at times but on a personal level, you find reliability and love. Summer is all about friends and relationships. These will often involve group activities. Keep up new friendships and even acquaintances as these will prove invaluable in the future. The more effort and enthusiasm you put into these, the higher the rewards. A bit of soul searching at this time reminds you what is important. Routine health checks and a revamp of your diet may be necessary in the autumn. Keeping in tip-top health is an investment, not a chore. Young family members need more of an input and may become a financial strain. Help them to gain independence in the longer term. The potential for work-related problems heightens in the winter. What is within your power is to work with others to form a loving and supportive framework for the future.

A relatively quiet start to the year gives the chance to consider your options. Bring family into the discussion about the direction that you want to go in. Travel is likely, although you may learn something invaluable from books and media. Where do your real opportunities lie? Is there something that others are not doing that could improve your finances? Spring gives the time to question and consider. As summer dawns, however, changes in your domestic and romantic life demand attention. There are good times and not so good times, mostly equally balanced. It can be stimulating and exciting to meet personal challenges. Sometimes a steep learning curve spurs you on, sometimes exhausts your enthusiasm. At these times give yourself a breather to enjoy family life and friends. There is a smooth transition into autumn as much the same activities continue. A boost to finances is likely to be from hard work rather than an inheritance or lottery win. Even so, it is certainly welcome! Relatives and children make demands (in the nicest possible way) on your money and time. Make practical choices that benefit the future not just the short term. A splash of romance heralds in the winter. Just when you least expect it, love smiles in your direction.

Overall: An enlightening, caring and strengthening year. Experience brings power.

Overall: A bright, enticing and optimistic year. Let others inspire your thoughts and feelings.

Libra

Scorpio

Sagittarius

The Libran love of the home and the need for good relationships is well catered for as this year begins. Spring brings not so much romance as friendships. Spring gives you the chance to try new things, especially where work is concerned. Don't be afraid to push your boundaries and gain new knowledge. Money may flow freely but do not overstretch the budget. Spending too much could spoil long-term stability in this area. As the summer arrives, there is an interest in spiritual growth and finding out about alternative choices. This can bring a fresh approach to your whole attitude to life. Some personal doubts are forgotten as you 'find' yourself. Early summer brings someone of influence into your life and their company and knowledge serves you well. Do not see this as a romance, however, for their presence is likely to be fleeting. The autumn is a chance to look back over the year so far and make adjustments to your plans. People will come and go as your needs change. An interest in a club or religion brings clarity and satisfaction. With more time on your hands in the winter, any kind of learning or research is of interest. Perhaps you trace your family roots or find the origins of your home.

Relationships of all kinds are the area of best fortune for you in this coming year. Of course, people need to know what you expect of them, so be honest and clear. In the early summer, more loving relationships become important. These may be fleeting and yet bring their own satisfaction. There is much to learn about yourself and others. The subject is endlessly fascinating to you. Creative projects, if taken seriously, can enhance your reputation and make family and friends proud. You get out what you put in. As autumn arrives, be wary of financial agreements, which must be legally sound. Be sure such undertakings are to your advantage. Go into them only with business partners, not lovers. With success come tensions and keeping healthy must be a priority. Taking up meditation or some stressbusting sport works well. The winter brings its own opportunities. These revolve around young people and perhaps charities. Certainly you find yourself able to improve the lot of others in a big way. Give special attention to young relatives. It is a big learning curve but one that you take to quickly. Satisfaction will be your reward.

Your life may at times appear to be overrun with interesting and unexpected people this year. Planning ahead is going to become essential. The spring brings enthusiasm and new beginnings. Confusing at times, emotions become involved easily. Don't assume that loves will stay around. They may come and go but leave fun and lively experiences in their wake. This will be a summer to sparkle. Friends and colleagues seek you out for your optimism and enthusiasm. Although not always as self-assured as others believe you to be, a keenness to help is much appreciated. There is a tendency, however, for others to put too much on your shoulders, so keep an eye on this area. The need for renewal sees you discard what no longer fits, be it items or people. This is necessary. Give to charity rather than throw away. A strong understanding of your own character and needs comes from this period. Autumn and winter both have a period of looking back and letting go of the past. It has to be done and will free both your mind and spirit in the process. Bring small matters to a conclusion and take care of legal matters including insurances and agreements.

Overall: A year of discovery, creativity and personal progress. Using your brain turns the tide.

Overall: A demanding, emotional and spontaneous year. Ties with others bring both success and drama.

June 22 - July 23

Aquarius

Capricorn

Pisces

A period of relaxation and enjoyment of your home life kicks the new year off. Starting as you mean to go on, the spring is a time to strengthen close relationships. There may be new members of the family to entertain. It may be necessary to move to a bigger house or new area due to these changes and progress at work. Never mind, you take it all in your considerable stride! Keep to a budget and get rid of anything that can be considered irrelevant. Who needs 20 vases or 40 pairs of shoes? Give to charity or have a boot sale. A refreshing start to the summer sees you still spending more time with your family and creating memories for the future. Someone close may decide to build a family tree. From this you find out about a fascinating ancestor. Those who are having problems with finances see the tide turning in their favour. Still you should continue to have good budgets. Career contacts need special attention. Always be aware of the facts before presenting yourself or your ideas. This can make the difference between swift progress and a damp squib. A chance meeting in the winter months triggers changes in your direction. This is more on a business level than a personal one. You surprise yourself continually with flashes of inspiration.

Kick start your year by getting involved. Business matters need your attention, of course, but socially it is also an important time. The spring offers many new opportunities to make friends and take up new activities. Some of you will learn a musical instrument or discover new (to you) religions. There are big shifts in beliefs and priorities as your knowledge of life increases. Early summer brings romantic interludes. Some will turn into long friendships; others will go by the way. Any relationship can enhance your understanding and compassion. People seek you out because of your knowledge and open views. They consider their friend and colleague a real asset. Avoid fast food and lack of exercise when busy. If you do not take care of yourself, then you cannot help others, can you? The autumn favours career choices and opportunities. Some of these come through social contacts and others from word of mouth. Careers take off and talents sparkle. You are flavour of the year. Make the most of this period before it quietens down in the winter months. That is a time to look at your personal priorities and plan for a more leisurely future. Loved ones need more of your attention and deserve to get it.

Prepare yourself for a busy, busy year, Pisces! The need to organise both yourself and your budget has never been more necessary. As you go into spring the emphasis is on both home and business. It is an exciting and demanding time when career matters can suddenly take off. Again, planning ahead is essential! All of this excitement is, of course, both tiring and inspiring. The summer brings involvement in group and family activities. Let others do their fair share. When others want your attention, give time and advice rather than money. You will be even more appreciated for this. Children are both a source of delight and concern as they stretch their wings and experience new things. They may be confused and need guidance even if they do not ask for it directly. Be sympathetic and friendly rather than authoritarian. Building their independence is a gradual process. Autumn and winter blend into a collection of delights interspersed with awkward moments. By keeping your sense of humour it is possible to do what is necessary without causing too much disturbance. This time is all about appreciating what you have rather than hankering after more. That will come, but at the right time!

Overall: A sparkling, progressive and enchanting year. Mix and match to get enough leisure time.

Overall: A creative, emotional and ambitious time. Put good finances before good fun.

January 21 - February 19

Overall: An ambitious, joyful and surprising year. Take opportunities and run with them.

LANDLORDS FEAR INCREASING RENT ARREARS IN 2012 John Kerrigan from Kerrigan Powell Properties talks about what 2012 may hold for us. Kerrigan Powell’s partners, ‘Legal 4 Landlords’, have recently published an alarming report highlighting the increase in court orders for eviction by 11% in 2011. More evictions are expected in 2012 as rent arrears are set to rise in the UK Private Rented Sector (PRS) and more landlords are forced to deal with tenants who cannot afford the rental payments on their residential property.

COURT ORDERS FOR EVICTIONS RISING BY 11% In the last quarter of 2011, 78,970 tenants had rent arrears, with 11,400 more tenants over 8 weeks in arrears than in the same period of 2010, a rise of 18%. Furthermore, 24,966 tenants were in the process of dealing with eviction notices, an increase of 11%. Landlords are becoming less tolerant of tenants payment problems, and many are seeking eviction as soon as the tenant’s rent arrears reach 8 weeks, using court orders to replace tenants quickly in expectation of finding a financially sound substitute. UK landlords anticipate that in 2012 both overall rent arrears and severe rent arrears will rise, further increasing the number tenant evictions.

REDUCING THE RISK There is a concern, among some, that this gloomy forecast for 2012 may drive some inexperienced and accidental landlords from the market, opting to sell or keep their properties off the rental market. However, landlords with rental properties are urged not to give in too easily and persevere to make their property rental business a success in 2012. Legal 4 Landlords spokesman Sim Sekhon said ”As landlords ourselves we know things can get tough sometimes, that’s one of the reasons why Legal 4 Landlords has expanded its wide range of services for UK landlords. We have been working hard with our partners to deliver an excellent Rent Guarantee Insurance product for UK BTL Landlords, now; keeping the cash flowing in has never been easier”.

Napier have achieved this by ensuring a uniquely high staff to block ratio and by retaining long term quality staff.

Commended” award at the recent Property Management Awards 2011 – 2012. Staff training and job satisfaction is a key element in running any successful business. At Napier they try to involve their staff in the implementation of change and try to allow flexibility with their working which ensures they get loyalty. The last two members of staff who left the Company both asked to return within 3 months, and they were able to take them back. They endeavour to keep the staff to number of properties ratio reasonable both to ensure a good service is maintained for the clients and to ensure the staff are not stressed with too much work. Napier also have a high success rate with staff training. All their Property managers have their IRPM qualification, which they paid for and trained them for. Their Accounts team have all been sent on suitable courses and they have encouraged and financed two members of the department to progress to their AAT qualification. They are now writing their own training programme and hope at the end of this year to start a formal two year apprenticeship scheme in Property Management – with an IRPM qualification at the end of it. The staff are also able to nominate a charity each year that the Company will support. So far they have supported the Neonatal Unit in Poole Hospital, Julias Hospice in Poole, and they are now sponsoring a local lady who is working in an Orphanage in Tanzania. This is all carried out with the intention of providing a good, honest and transparent service for the clients and a happy workplace for the staff and trying to put something back into the local community. Napier are looking to expand the company further and would love to hear from you if you are considering employing a property management company to act on your behalf, or if you are not receiving the service that you should be from your current management company.

Carmen Berry – My route from heavy to heavenly I started bootcamp after spotting it on facebook adverts. I went along for the first session and thought, wow that was tough, that is definitely going to get results. So I made a pact with myself to get into it after my holiday. When I got back from my holiday I was almost 12 stone, I saw my holiday pics and knew I had to start bootcamp, so I reluctantly set my alarm for 5.15am and off I went and from then on I was addicted. The sessions were fun and very varied so I knew that I was getting an all over body workout. Another great thing was that I also got all the nutritional advice I needed and a massive amount of support from my coach Spencer, and also from the other people at bootcamp. Within weeks I noticed a difference in my body shape, it was fab. I attend 4 sessions a week and I am now after 5 months, 2 stone lighter. I've never felt better and am really proud of what I've achieved at Spencer’s bootcamp. I can't recommend it enough. My 3 top tips for getting in shape are:

140

1) Set yourself goals that are not unrealistic. 2) Always put in 100%, you only get out what you put in. 3) Don't count calories, always look for the sugar content, calories and fat can be burnt off with exercise, sugar changes to stored body fat.

SNACkING For ENErGy Before your next snack break, think twice about what you are about to eat and remember the following information when you're craving a snack! If you find yourself fighting sleepiness in the afternoon, what your body needs is a boost of energy. Snacks eaten midday should contain good fats and protein to give and sustain your energy level. TRY A small apple or sliced banana with a tablespoon of peanut butter. The natural sugars in fruit take longer to metabolize than sugars found in sweets, and the peanut butter provides the protein needed for longlasting energy.


how to Get everythinG you want in 2012

Here's to a Happy New Year and to getting everything that you want out of 2012. Today you have a clean slate with a brand new year spread out in front of you, filled with endless possibilities. How will you harness your potential to create the very best of you? I recommend using the teachings of Dr. Maxwell Maltz in his legendary book 'The New PsychoCybernetics'. Dr. Maltz created the original science of self improvement and success, so who better to turn to when you're ready to take your life to another level. His teachings have stood the test of time. Use the following and get all that you want out of 2012: (1) Use Your Imagination If you thought that imaginations were only valued in preschool, think again. One of the key points in 'The New Psycho-Cybernetics' is the technique of using your imagination to

reprogram and manage your self-image. You may have been exposed to self improvement strategies that tell you to 'act as if' or to 'fake it till you make it.' Those typically don't work because your self-image is still the same. According to Dr. Maltz, your self-image is the key to changing your actions and habits. If you want to lose 50 pounds, you first have to think of yourself as someone 50 pounds lighter. Spend time in your imagination. See yourself 50 pounds lighter. Experience a day in your life at this slimmed down size. Imagine everything down to the smallest detail. According to Dr. Maltz, this imagination time will begin to change your self-image to that of a person 50 pounds lighter, and your actions and habits will fall into place. (2) Reject Negative Thoughts Negative thoughts will undoubtedly arise as you use your imagination to see your ideal self. "I'm not really going to lose 50 pounds." "I've tried losing weight before and it never works.” “I'm always going to be overweight." "This imagination stuff is bogus. It won't work for me." Dr. Maltz says that the instant you receive a negative thought simply dismiss it. Don't spend any time on it at all. The quicker that you dismiss negative thoughts, the less impact they will have on your self-image. Also you'll find that fewer and fewer negative thoughts arise once you get into the habit of dismissal.

(3) Be Nostalgic For The Future It's so easy to be nostalgic for the past, especially when you only remember the good stuff. But what good does it do for you to wish for things that are long gone? Dr. Maltz recommends developing nostalgia for the future. In your imagination you've already lost the 50 pounds, so start pining for the future! Your self-image will lock onto that picture and your nostalgic feelings will fuel the fire. (4) I'm the kind of person that… What kind of person are you? I'm the kind of person that loves sweets. I'm the kind of person that hates exercise. I'm the kind of person that can't lose weight. OR I'm the kind of person that eats fresh and healthy food. I'm the kind of person that keeps fit. I'm the kind of person that maintains an ideal body weight. Your self-image will fulfill any label that you put on yourself. The power is all in your hands. What kind of a person do you want to be in 2012? If losing weight is something you'd like to do this year, then call or email to set up a consultation. I'm the kind of person who LOVES to see clients like you achieve their goals!

METABOLIC BALANCE ALL NATURAL WEIGHT MANAGEMENT The award winning weight management programmeâ&#x20AC;Ś regulate your weight healthily and naturally strengthen your metabolism gently and permanently

In the western world many people suffer with obesity which leads to ailments and illness due to poor diet. By choosing the wrong foods for our body, we no longer receive the nutrients in order to maintain optimal hormonal and metabolic balance. Much of our food today is often derived from refined carbohydrates and empty calories and typically, lacking in healthy proteins and essential fats depriving us from vital vitamins, minerals and fibre. This kind of diet stimulates the production of too much insulin, our main metabolic hormone, resulting in negative consequences to our health, body and weight. Through the dedication of Doctors, Nutrition Scientists and IT Specialists and following more than 20years of research into healthy eating, metabolic balance has succeeded in devising a unique, scientifically proven programme to resolve this problem. Using laboratory values from your blood analysis, a personalised nutritional programme is generated for you. The plan includes meals containing foods that promote a regulated insulin response, which in turn, re-balances hormones and subsequently results in a more healthy and balanced metabolism. The four phases of the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;all natural weight managementâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; programme with metabolic balance. After receiving your blood analysis and personal data, your individual tailored plan is drawn up. The start of the programme begins with a 2 day preparation: Phase 1: To cleanse and prime the body for your nutritional regime. The next 14 days is a structured strict phase: Phase 2: During which, the body receives vital and essential nutrients through wholesome natural foods. You will experience healthier and more positive changes towards your weight and well-being. To follow, you enter the eased adjustment phase. Phase 3: Consisting of an extended list of food choices that you may explore according to your taste. This more relaxed phase allows you to enjoy the odd and occasional treat whilst reaching your goal. Finally you will embrace the on-going maintenance phase: Phase 4: Content and confident having reached your goal and accomplished a new sense of well-being! The metabolic life-style has become second nature to you to continue successfully and healthily, with balance being restored and permanent weight adjustment is achieved. This programme addresses: Obesity/cravings, sugar and fat metabolism disorders, cardiovascular diseases e.g atherosclerosis, hypertension and high cholesterol, rheumatic/arthritic conditions, migraines, liver/gall-bladder issues, kidney and bladder disorders, poor digestion, poor performance and lack of drive, endocrine disorders/menopausal symptoms, osteoporosis, allergies/skin disorders, insomnia/ snoring , gout. Note: The metabolic balance programme does not replace any possible or ongoing medical conditions or treatments and any concerns should be discussed with your health advisor/doctor.

MOTORING NEWS The latest news on all things motoring

AUDI A1 LIMITED EDITION A new limited edition Audi A1 stakes a claim to be the most powerful and fastest accelerating car of its kind ever created. The new ultra-exclusive A1 is not only the first to enter production with quattro all-wheel-drive but is also the first to adopt a larger capacity petrol engine ramping power up to 256hp. Limited to just 333 examples worldwide, it will combine "unprecedented performance and agility with a suitably rarefied equipment list." It enables the A1 quattro to power from 0-60mph in 5.7 seconds and on to a top speed of 152mph. Power is channelled via a quick-shifting six-speed manual transmission to the quattro permanent

all-wheel drive system. Finished exclusively in Glacier White metallic, complemented by 18inch turbine design alloy wheels also in Glacier White and a high-gloss black roof, the A1 quattro will stand out from the crowd. The A1 quattro will be equipped with many features including adaptive brake lights, an LED interior lighting package, light and rain sensors, the acoustic rear parking system, automatic air conditioning, a storage package, the convenience key and cruise control. The left-hand-drive only Audi A1 quattro will be available in mainland Europe in the second half of 2012. A final decision on whether or not Audi UK will import the car will be based in part on customer reaction.

REVERSE DAMAGE Travelling in reverse gear causes £409 million each year in vehicle damage, according to new research by Accident Exchange. Almost 200,000 reversing accidents occur annually, reported the accident management specialists, equivalent to more than 500 each day, with an average repair cost of £2,123. As the busiest shopping days of the year arrive, drivers are being advised to take care in congested car parks, the location of most reverse-related damage. In the majority of incidents, the ‘at fault’ driver collided with the innocent party’s stationary vehicle – usually in a car park – or was reversing from a driveway or narrow side road. The Accident Exchange study suggests that reversing cars cause almost 8% of otal vehicle accidents in the UK, which results in nearly half a billion pounds of damage, excluding the wider costs associated with the involvement of emergency services or lost labour hours. There were an estimated 2.5 million accidents in 2010 on UK roads and Department for Transport figures show that failing to check for another vehicle is the most frequently reported contributory factor (38%) to accidents. “Despite the proliferation of technology such as parking sensors and reverse cameras, drivers are not taking enough care to accurately check their surroundings whilst reversing.” said Lee Woodley of Accident Exchange.

SMART FORTWO CABRIO

152

Smart has carved a very successful niche for its tiny fortwo model. Right from its launch, the car provided a cool trendy image which appealed to young buyers, especially those who live in cities where parking space is hard to find. The smart’s major plus-point is its overall length, so short that two cars can fit into a standard parking-meter space. Seating two adults in comfort, as its fortwo name indicates, this model doesn’t have even a ledge behind the seats, and the boot space is quite small, adequate for daily needs but not enough to accommodate a family-shop at a supermarket. Smart exudes city appeal, yet it is good on the motorway too, cruising happily at the maximum speed limit without feeeling at all strained.There is 84 hp on tap from a three-cylinder engine. Top speed is 90 mph, the 0-60 mph time 13.3 seconds. Offcial combined fuel consumption is 57.6 mpg which looks good on paper, but in a busy week of mainly town driving, and with a 200 mile motorway round trip, I managed only 40 mpg, which I thought was disappointing. My test model was the fortwo cabrio in passion trim level, which includes as standard air-con, alloys, sat-nav and electrically operated fabric roof and costing £11,995. However, there were various

optional extras fitted, including a £510 audio upgrade which featured surround sound, bringing the total cost to £14,025. The fortwo cabin is surprisingly roomy, and very comfortable. The facia layout is good, with the main instruments and switchgear easily to hand. There is not too much oddment stowage and the door bins are too slim to be of much use. Starting the smart is a left-handed task as the key insert is down near the gearstick. It is a manual paddle-shift gearbox, with an automatic switch if you don’t want to do any work. The paddles work fine, but the auto box – useful in city traffic – is jerky, however light footed you try to be. Underway, the fortwo bowls along well and excels in tight places, always nippy and agile. And it can squeeze into parking spaces other drivers couldn’t even consider. The smart really has this particular niche market to itself, there is no direct rival. The nearest is probably Toyota’s IQ, which although billed as a 4-seater, is in effect comfy only for two adults. While it is over £1,000 cheaper than the smart, and 10mpg more ecoconomical on the combined fuel run, it is less well equipped and it can’t match the smart’s street image. And its not a cabriolet.

knits

We wrap up warm with the craze for winter woollies

156

Knitwear might feel like more of a staple in the winter months but this season, the fashion world has practically pulled the wool over our eyes. From oversized jumpers to mini skirts, knitwear is the hottest - and certainly the snuggest - trend right now. Even novelty jumpers have enjoyed something of a style renaissance with reindeers, snowmen and penguins emblazoned all over cheery knits. So whether you prefer handmade-style or couture Cashmere, it's time to throw out those tired, moth-eaten pieces and join the new style knitting club. Show off your knit-wit potential and go wild for woollies. Boyfriend borrower - With the festive bulge beckoning, here's one knitwear look you won't want to miss. Ticking the box for the androgynous and minimalist trends, an oversized knit is not only ideal for layering, but it also disguises unwanted Santa bellies too. Try a sweater or long-line cardigan in a size that looks like you've strayed into your other half's side of the wardrobe. You could even experiment by delving into the menswear departments for the authentic option. The trick with boy-shaped knits is to keep your bottom half fitted, so leggings, skinny jeans or skirt with tights. Nobody wants to look like they're dressed head-to-toe in a giant's clothing. Bright beauty - The perfect antidote to dark

winter nights, a knit so bright you'll practically glow in the dark is a must. Fashioned from this season's block colour trend, a jewel-hued jumper will have you dazzling through the festive season. Not just reserved for eveningwear, pick out a luxurious knit in an opulent shade of amethyst, ruby, sapphire or emerald. For a more outgoing option, try a sunny citrus shade, like orange, lime or yellow, that will ease you right through to spring. These neon-esque brights will really pop against a drab winter wardrobe. Heritage hunt - Grab your tweeds and plaids, a cosy countryside knit is the perfect accompaniment to the heritage trend. Made for the classic dresser who wants a knit that will last, look for chunky cable-knit numbers in timeless neutral hues of camel, cream or navy. If you really want to embrace the quintessential British look, try a plaid pullover or argyle knit - no golf clubs necessary. Make your heritage knit the main fashion focus by paring down the rest of your ensemble with a smart black skirt or tailored trousers. Forties finds - If a baggy jumper somehow feels a little too casual, even trussed up with pearls, go back in time to this season's Forties vibe. The decade was big news on the runways for winter and the retro look is set to continue for next spring too.

Go for a ready-made Forties knit via a classic matching twin set - elegance personified. And create your own vintage appeal by emphasising the waist with a fitted long-line button-up cardigan and skinny belt. A body-skimming pencil skirt will really add the Forties finishing touch. Layering love - Those head over heels with all things woolly can go mad with natty knit maximalism. Knitwear may have traditionally been confined to jumpers, cardigans and scarves but now there's a whole style spectrum on offer: coats, dresses, chunky tights, knitted skirts, arm warmers, leg warmers and even winter boots complete with cosy cuffs. For the ultimate in fashion kudos, layer them all up at the same time for a top-to-toe knit takeover. Just ensure you mix up different colours and wool types for the most fashionable knit-wit look. Novelty knits - Once the jovial piece reserved for Christmas time only, the novelty jumper has come into its own this winter. A quick scan of the high street pullover rails and you'll find all manner of festive cuties and critters putting the fun back into fashion. The key to ensuring it looks trendy - not tragic - is styling it up with something edgy and unexpected. Steer clear of anything too girly on your bottom half - give your fluffy favourite some street cred with some rock-chick leggings or a leather skirt, so you have a real contrast of textures.

A CHAT WITH THE HEAD IAIN ROBERTSON BUCKHOLME TOWERS 2012 - Here we come! Buckholme’s ready! Christmas is already a distant, if warm, memory. We reflect on 2011 - the concerts, the fundraising, the fun and the achievements of every child but what about our Resolutions for 2012, the year of the Olympics? (The torch runs right past our school and plans are already being made for an unforgettable celebration). What Will 2012 Bring? - Well, I have joined a Yoga class – the Unresolved Resolution for at least the last two years! And Buckholme Children? - Nell wants her Uncle Chris to give up smoking. - Matilda is excited that Mum has got that Zumba DVD, but now can’t get near the tv! - Calum has decided he needs to broaden his musical tastes and listen to more than just the Blues – it’s not our colour at Buckholme! - Emily has vowed to fit more cello practise into her busy schedule! (I seem to remember saying that about my saxophone. Must blow the dust off and join the school band!) - Lewis, at 12, simply wants to get fitter by getting into the gym more – and so say all of us! Well after these quite critical Resolutions, there will be other targets for Buckholme in 2012 like rolling out our ‘Every Child a Musician’ and ‘Every Child a Sailor’ initiatives Whatever ‘extras’ we aim for, we refuse to be distracted from those fundamentals that underpin everything we do at Buckholme;
