BUY-TO-LET BOOM SEES NO SIGN OF ABATING RECORD BREAKING FEBRUARY BOURNECOAST Property Agents say that the Country is in the grip of a Buy to Let boom, seeing landlords taking advantage of low property prices. This continues with the trend from last year when Bournecoast highlighted the ever increasing demand for Buy to Let (BTL) properties. The estimated value of property currently being snapped up is thought to be in the region of £160 billion. According to information released last week, there is currently a record 1.4 million landlord loans being invested into properties, as landlords cash in on soaring rental demand from young people who cannot afford to step onto the property ladder. The low interest rates are seeing a poor return on savings but conversely are making mortgage repayments exceptionally cheap, so investing in a buy-to-let property - coupled by rents being at an all-time high across the Country - proves a sound investment for both amateur and professional landlords. Equity-rich landlords are emerging who are entering the Buy to Let market with a view to supplementing their pension plans. Simon Tebbutt, Business Development

6

Manager at Bournecoast said: ‘Landlords are buying low and renting high. According to the CML, when the buy-to-let market was in its infancy in 2001 landlords had obtained 185,000 loans to invest in rental properties. Compare that to today, when landlords have taken out approximately 1.39 million loans - thought to be worth about £160 billion - to spend on their property portfolios.” Last year saw a rise in demand of 24 per cent on the previous year with typical tenants being couples under the age of 35. The number of families in rented accommodation is also rising, seeing renting as the new ‘norm’. Mr Tebbutt added: "Before Christmas last year we predicted there would be a sharp rise in investment acquisitions with an increase in BTL mortgage applications which is coming to fruition, providing more evidence that the hunger for Buy to Let amongst house buyers is back after a couple of years of fairly stagnant growth.” "The market is now where we predicted it to be ten months ago. It’s not a case of having a crystal ball but we fundamentally understand the property investment market. Our

obvious levels of expertise allow us to fairly accurately forecast what might happen. “Bournecoast are the area’s property investment solutions provider of choice. We offer an unrivalled service which is reflected in the increasing demand from our customers for lettings, which continues to grow." He added, “We have many waiting tenants and several new properties ripe for investment coming onto the market, which would be ideal for student lets and are capable of netting approx £4,000 per month in rent.” With the clear understanding in the local market possessed by Bournecoast, and with the unequalled experience of being established and still family run for over 50 years, the company prides itself in providing quality properties and recognising a good investment potential by being able to offer holiday lets on suitable properties to generate even more income. For information on currently available investment opportunities and to find out more about what makes a good investment, contact the friendly team at Bournecoast on 01202 437888 or visit www.bournecoast.co.uk.

In spite of pessimism about the property market in these challenging times, Savills in Canford Cliffs certainly seems to be bucking the trend, agreeing to sell 18 properties during February alone, with prices ranging from £270,000 to £2,750,000. Both the residential sales and the new homes teams working closely have noticed that the market has been busier than at any time in 2011. The popularity of properties in the Bournemouth and Poole conurbation shows no sign of faltering at the moment as the team has had several instances that have seen purchasers enter into a competitive bidding situation in order to purchase the same property. Keith Fensom, Head of Residential commented, “Interestingly most of the recent interest has been where the property guide prices have

been reduced to meet the market. We often test the market initially at a slightly higher figure to prove we are striving to obtain the best price possible for our clients, before they are eventually satisfied and agree to reduce.” “Our market place is often seasonal as a high level of our buyers are holiday home purchasers or people looking to retire to the area, both of whom tend to hibernate in the Winter and start their search when the weather improves. We are now entering what should be our busiest time of the year and therefore we expect to remain busy for the next four months or so” If you are thinking of buying or selling please do not hesitate to contact the office on 01202 708888 alternatively you can view all the Savills properties online at www.savills.co.uk

AWARD-WINNING PRODUCTS NOW AVAILABLE FROM CONNELLS IN POOLE

BEST FOOT FORWARD

Local estate agency Connells in Poole is delighted to announce it is now offering an award-winning range of protection products provided by insurer Friends Life. The new insurance products, which include life, critical illness and income protection, also offer valuable additional services including the Bupa HealthLine1 and a service which offers policyholders the chance to get an expert second opinion on the treatment they need if they contract a serious illness or medical condition 2. “No one wants to think about what might happen if something prevents them from earning an income for a period of time or, worse still, if they

Having spent 13 years selling defence systems for the armed forces, local entrepreneur Nicola MassieuCowlard decided to set her sights on a new venture. Launched in November 2010, what started out initially as a party plan-only outlet servicing Dorset and Hampshire, Shoe Devotion offered a highly-exclusive range of personally-selected shoes and handbags from Spain and Italy. 3 Business Women Award nominations later and having taken part in the first ever Fashion Show on London’s Tower Bridge, Shoe Devotion’s development has continued apace. 2012 has already seen the launch of an online boutique – expanding

die,” says Mortgage Services Consultant Melvin Parker. “It’s crucial to have insurance in place when you take out a mortgage. That way, if the worst should happen, your dependants and home are protected. We are urging those with or without existing policies to come and discuss our new insurance products and see if they could offer a better level of protection.” Despite the importance of life insurance, critical illness cover and income protection, recent research by Friends Life 3 found that only around 50 per cent of those surveyed have policies in place to protect them should the worst happen. Of those who had policies, only half regularly

reviewed their policy to make sure it provided adequate protection for their changing needs. “Many people look at putting protection schemes in place when making big life decisions, like buying a house or starting a family, but there are still huge numbers who have no means of maintaining an income if, for example, they were diagnosed with a serious illness or lost their job,” Melvin continues. “The new range of Friends Life protection products, available through Connells, offers this peace of mind.” If you are interested in speaking to Connells about the new range of protection products, please contact the branch on 01202 673977 or email: poole@connells.co.uk

Says Nicola of her success to date: “It’s been a really thrilling journey so far, the last 12 months have proven incredible with some amazing opportunities having been presented to me.

existing floor level and removing a lot of earth an expensive and laborious task that can reveal hidden problems. Converting a cellar is difficult if the house's foundations prove to be shallow. If this is the case with yours, you'll have to get the house underpinned, which isn't cheap, although some cellar-conversion companies do this as a matter of course. There may also be pipes in the way, but these can usually be moved. Rather than digging down, you may find it easier to have the floors raised in the rooms above the cellar, providing the ceilings in those rooms are high enough. Another problem with cellar conversions is making them watertight, so it's really important to get a reputable company or companies to do the work. You can either employ an architect to draw up plans for the conversion (in consultation with a structural engineer) and a builder to do the work, or you can get a cellar-conversion company to do everything.If you do use a builder, it's a good idea to use a specialist damp-proofing company, too, because you don't want to risk the

conversion springing a leak. Planning permission is usually required for cellar conversions - ask your local council's planning department about this - not least because they usually involve a light well being dug in the front garden. Your architect or cellar-conversion company should be able to help you apply for planning. Like all major building projects, conversions must comply with building regulations. The council's building control department will want to check on the work as it progresses to ensure it complies and will have to sign it off at the end to make it legal. You may also require permission from the freeholder (if you live in a leasehold property), and from your neighbours (if the cellar conversion involves a wall or boundary you share with them) so that you comply with the Party Wall Act. A cellar below your home's footprint will take around 12 to 24 weeks to convert, plus a few months for the planning stages. The cost should be from around ÂŁ3,300 per sqm, depending on what's involved.

TOP TIP:

Planning permission is usually required for cellar conversions - ask your local council’s planning department about this - not least because they usually involve a light well being dug in the front garden.

GIVE ME SOME SPACE

GIVE ME SOME SPACE

TION... IN THIS SEC 47


A SPACE OF MY OWN We all need a place to sort out the family finances, run a business or simply enjoy a hobby. Gabrielle Fagan gives a guide to creating a productive space in the home.

Or opt for a Carnac straight desk in white steel and glass, £79, and matching bookcase in white steel and glass £119, both from MFI.

There's something special about a place of our own within our home, even if it is only a corner of the kitchen where we can attend to the bills, a desk on a landing where we get creative or the bliss of a retreat at the bottom of the garden away from the family. As technology allows the boundaries between work and play to become blurred, we increasingly consider a home office (if we have the luxury of space), or at least an area devoted to a hobby or work, as essential. According to new figures, around

70%

of home renovation plans now include space for a study of some kind, and John Lewis has seen a 13% increase, compared to last year, in sales of home office furniture and storage. "We all need a space we can call our own," says Caroline Clifton-Mogg, whose book, A Space Of My Own, is packed with ingenious and practical ways of conjuring a 'work' area, coupled with delightful decorative ideas. "Whatever it's used for, this area should be a haven - somewhere that is tranquil, calming and creatively inspiring at the same time. A private space must be satisfying to the soul," she enthuses. There's also everything to be gained by having an area, no matter how tiny, where you can display personal treasures and enjoy 'me' time.

"THE IMPORTANT THING IS THAT IT'S KNOWN TO ALL AS VERY MUCH YOUR SPACE, AND IT SHOULD FEEL PRIVATE," "This is a place that should be specifically designed to cater to you and what you are doing. "So decorate in a way that pleases you, perhaps your favourite picture, or a gallery of photos and postcards that give you pleasure to gaze at. "Choose colours well - bright shades to stimulate and inspire, or calming, contemplative ones to allow your inner creativity to peacefully emerge. This is your place and you can tailor it so it fulfils your desires." 48

HOME OFFICE “More and more of us are able to work from home, and as a result our work space can be tailored perfectly to suit our needs.” “You’re free to stray from the neutral colour schemes and utility furniture beloved by office managers and can be as imaginative as you want.” But, she advises, the secret of a good office at home is to combine comfort, multipurpose furniture and stylish storage with carefully-chosen decorative pieces so that no one element looks out of place with anything else in the room. “A calm, orderly space will help you to be more productive, organised and even more creative,” she says.

STYLISH CHOICES:

1 2

Go contemporary with a white lacquered table, £349, and Ferrara chair, £339, both from BoConcept. A John Lewis Loft desk, £225, in wood is a classic, or follow the fashion for mid-century modern furniture with a slim Treviso desk, £899 from Ercol.

TOP TIP: Ensure your work surface and chair are the right height to support you. An ideal desk height is 65-70cm (26-28 inches) from the floor, more if you’re taller. Look for a swivelling, adjustable chair with lumbar support.


GIVE ME SOME SPACE

CRAFT CORNER “One of the greatest luxuries is to have a dedicated room or space where you can be creative,” says Clifton-Mogg. “Whether it’s jewellery-making, potting, painting or drawing, sewing or knitting, for pleasure or for business, there’s nothing like having a place with your tools, work and inspiration around you. “This area, perhaps more than any other, needs to be well organised, so ensure there is sufficient storage for files and equipment.”

STYLISH CHOICES:

1 2

John Lewis has a selection of table accessories, including Orla Kiely’s distinctive multi-stem square storage boxes, £8 each. Enjoy privacy wherever you are with a Rewrite desk with soundproofed fibreglass hood, £1,771 from Ligne Roset.

STUDY SPACE “We all like the idea of a retreat, and the very word ‘study’ still conjures up the idea of a small, warm room decorated with its owner’s most favourite possessions,” says Clifton-Mogg. “This is a place where you can be alone, and where you should be able to write, work, read or simply sit. “It could be a spare room or a converted loft. Whatever your particular desire, the idea of a room devoted to one’s personal and private passions remains immensely appealing.”

TOP TIP: It’s not essential for a study to be book-lined, but rows of books will undoubtedly add colour and atmosphere and could help with sound-proofing. If you choose built-in shelves, make sure you measure books, CDs, or magazines to ensure they fit before installation.

STYLISH CHOICES: Urbano study in Contemporary Urbano finish, edged in solid oak, made to order from £3,000 from Neville Johnson.

49


HIDDEN RETREAT

Space is at a premium in modern homes, and it may not be possible to set aside one room as a personal work or hobby space,” acknowledges Clifton-Mogg. “But with a little imagination, it’s usually possible to find a corner that may have been overlooked. It might be one end of a room screened off by a curtain, space on a landing, a converted cupboard under the stairs, or a deep cupboard. “They can make the best home offices as they’re neat and functional and tucked away - tiny oases for calm reflection.”

TOP TIP: There’s no need to buy new furniture if you’re on a tight budget. Source pieces from second-hand furniture shops, auctions or online recycling sites such as www.freecycle.org

50

1 1 2 2

STYLISH CHOICES: An office in a cupboard is a neat idea. A Neptune Chichester Deluxe oak workstation in limestone, £2,395 from John Lewis, comes with a fold-out shelf for a computer. Alternatively, plump for a New England home office armoire, £570 from The Dormy House.


GIVE ME SOME SPACE

STYLISH CHOICE: A room divider or folding screen could help create a private area. A ceilinghung sliding fabric panel, from £82.22 including rail and fabric, which comes made to measure from The Fabric Box, could 'zone' a work area and give it a sense of identity.

BUY THE BOOK: A Space Of My Own by Caroline CliftonMogg is published by Ryland Peters & Small, priced £19.99. The book is available to readers for the special price of £17.99 (including p&p) by calling Macmillan Direct on 01256 302 699 and quoting reference GLR 5QM

Very good professional service from concept to installation. Customer service and contact throughout exceptional. No pressure to sell, I was treated as an individual, very clear and patient to ensure I understood everything. The quality of work at installation was excellent. A professional, efficient, clean, polite, considerate team and a pleasure to host.

Their approach is highly professional and efficient, guiding us through the whole process and making it seem effortless.

CHILDRENâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S MEDICINES Many parents worry about giving medicine to their children. Experts reveal why a new website Medicines for Children was needed to help parents. It's tough enough when your child is ill without the added stress of not knowing how much medicine to give them, and what the sideeffects may be. And while there are information leaflets with medicines, the advice is often in hard-to-understand medical jargon in tiny print, and lacking in details about the practicalities of giving medicines to children. For example, if they need their medicine three times a day, should they take it to school with them? Doctors and pharmacists are aware of the problems that parents face when giving their children medicine, and have now taken steps to help through the new website Medicines for Children (www.medicinesforchildren.org.uk). The website, which accompanies a series of Medicines for Children leaflets which were launched just before Christmas, gives reliable information on more than 100 key medicines, and answers common questions such as how and when to give medicine to children, what's the right dose, and what are the possible side60

effects of particular medicines. The website and leaflets, which are written and reviewed by children's doctors, pharmacists and parents, were created by a partnership of experts from the children's charity WellChild, the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health (RCPCH), and the Neonatal and Paediatric Pharmacists Group (NPPG). Dr William van't Hoff, a consultant paediatrician at Great Ormond Street Hospital, who is on the panel driving the initiative, says:

"The Medicines for Children website and leaflets aim to support any parent whose child requires medication - from a one-off treatment to others whose child requires long-term and complicated treatment, often with several different medications being given every day. We want to help parents feel confident about giving their children medicines, having been reassured by easily accessible, practical and informative advice written specifically for them."

Parents can use the website to search for information using the name of the medicine or the condition being treated. The easy-to-read information includes how to give medicines and what to do in case a dose is forgotten or given twice. There's also a section containing news stories about medicines, a range of videos showing how to give medication, and Medicines for Children leaflets can be downloaded. Consultant pharmacist Stephen Tomlin, lead pharmacist for Medicines for Children, says parents can have problems with any medicines for their children, and often worry about what they don't know about the medicine. "Although a lot of licensed medicines have information leaflets, they're usually very long, and contain a lot of information that parents don't need," he says. A medicine may not be licensed for children, and the information in the packet may not therefore be appropriate for them, or some medicines may not be licensed at all and contain no information. "We're trying to pull out the practical bits that parents want to know, for medicines that are used very regularly like paracetamol suspension, to drugs which are very specific," explains Tomlin. "But the problems are there for all medicines."


CHILDREN’S MEDICINES One of the most common questions parents have about medicines for their children concern the side-effects, says Tomlin, who points out that medical professionals often avoid the issue because they don't want to scare people. "If there are nasty side-effects and you need to get your child to hospital if they happen, parents need to know that. These aren't things to be avoided," he stresses. "If people know what to look for, they're generally happier." As well as side-effects, Tomlin says parents might not know what to do if their child is sick after having their medication, for example. Do they give another dose or not? The answer depends on the medication. And if a child suffers from a medication side-effect, the website and leaflets give advice on appropriate action, including whether to go to hospital, miss the next dose or just wait until the side-effects wear off. Tomlin says that many parents have problems with the administration of medicines for children, particularly if a child can't swallow tablets. He says some tablets can be crushed and some can't, and the website and leaflets give information about what's appropriate for each drug. In addition, there's information about how to encourage a child to take their medicine. Sometimes this can be by mixing it with a little juice, for example, but it depends on the medication, as this approach may not be appropriate for some drugs. "Parents look after their children more than they look after themselves," adds Tomlin, "and if the medication is for them they may well just take it, but if it's for their child, they want to know more." The Medicines for Children initiative also

includes a panel of parents who advise the experts involved about the issues parents have with particular medicines for their kids. Linda Partridge, WellChild's director of programmes, heads the parents' panel, and is seeking others to join, stressing that parents and carers don't need any experience to get involved. She says: "We need parents and carers to join our panel to help make sure our information is helpful and easy to understand. "It won't take up much time, and their help will be very important. Parents are at the heart of this initiative." Parents can find out how to get involved through the Medicines for Children website.

“My 16-year-old son seems to spend ages sleeping - is that likely to make any difference to his performance at school?” Professor Mark Showalter, of Brigham Young University in the USA, is co-author of a recent study to determine the impact sleep duration and quality has on academic performance. He says: “The short answer: it depends.“We did a study in the US of about 1,700 children and adolescents aged 10-18. As part of the study, the children were asked about their typical nightly sleep patterns, and were given some tests for maths and reading. “What we found was that there was an inverted U-shaped pattern linking sleep and test scores: if kids slept a little more or less than the ‘optimum’, their test scores were lower, although not by much. But scores started falling substantially if the students were sleeping a lot - over 11 hours a night - or very little - less than five hours.“There was also a pattern that older children tended to sleep less than younger children. The highest average test scores were associated with about seven hours of sleep for adolescents aged 16-18, but it was about 9.5 hours for children aged 10-12.“If your child is sleeping over 11 hours or under five hours a night, it might be worth checking with a doctor to ensure there aren’t some other medical issues affecting his sleep.“Otherwise, the best strategy is probably working with your son to ensure that he’s getting enough sleep to stay alert at school, and also that he’s awake long enough during the day to spend adequate time on his studies.”

DEEPEST DEVON DELIGHTS

Hunkering down in Devon, as the weather takes a turn for the worst, Jeremy Gates discovers the best ways to keep warm on a British mini-break.

75


The wide sandy beach of Ventnor

76

It was the first time I had ever sat in an outdoor hot tub, supported by a raft of bubbles, and listened to a chorus of happy moos from cows munching their breakfast across the other side of the valley. As the sunlight slowly pierced the autumnal mists in Devon's South Hams district, I could see some animals craftily using a back leg to prop themselves up on the hillside. After a swim in the largest (certainly the warmest) indoor pool I have had entirely to myself, I strolled back to my barn-style holiday home for breakfast. On my huge TV screen, business reports flashed in from London, New York and Tokyo. I knew self-catering holidays in Britain had gone up in the world. But I hadn't realised just how luxurious they had become until the satnav drew us to the near-deserted village of East Allington, and then down a single track road for a mile as we searched for a sign in high hedges on either side. Flear's complex of nine cottages and three lodges sit in the centre of a 45-acre estate in the middle of nowhere. After dark, you need a torch to wander from your front door. The facilities are so good, however, that guests have to sign in visitors who drop in for the day. Beside the pool is a large indoor play area, including trampoline, climbing frames, wendy house and indoor footy. For older children and creaky dads, an outdoor play area lower down the hillside includes a hard tennis court, three holes of pitch and putt, and space beside a babbling

country stream where you can kick a ball around until the sun goes down. Proper golfers get a 25% discount on 18-hole or nine hole golf courses at nearby Dartmouth Golf & Country Club. Orchard Lodge, our base for the week, boasts a Gold Award from tourism body Enjoy England, and is set on slope with a massive open-plan oak-beamed living area above and sleeping quarters downstairs. Each of three bedrooms has its own bathroom, and the master bedroom sports a 'love shower' which sprays at interesting angles. Rural holidays have moved on a bit since Swallows And Amazons. I could have passed days happily in front of the open log fire with some good books. In the event, it was showery, rather than wet. Our first stop was the beach, barely five miles away along muddy country lanes. Blackpool Sands, a wide, open beach flanked by high trees on steep, wooded cliffs, must look terrific under a hot sun. This is also a handy spot to join the South West Coastal Path, great for walkers. My son took his time to enthuse about a yomp along Start Bay and beyond a hamlet of whitewashed homes called Torcross, where the fish and chip shop is firmly endorsed by Flear guests. Nearly as famous is Slapton Ley National Nature Reserve almost alongside, where the marshes, reed beds and woodland provide a natural magnet for numerous species of birds, mammals, butterflies and moths. Beyond there, we were buffeted by coastal


breezes along Slapton Sands, beneath the Stars and Stripes which mark a massacre here in 1944. When German E-boats attacked US infantry divisions rehearsing for the Normandy landings, more than 600 men were lost in the darkness. Some days, it was a bit chilly to walk, so what could be better than a visit to Totnes, beloved among elderly hippies and anybody else determined to escape modern Britain? Did Mary Portas pass this way when she tried to find a future for Britain's high streets? Totnes embraces visitors, its shops stuffed with fine local foods, including delicious breads and cheeses made locally, and gleaming fresh fruit and veg. There's mountains of cheap clothing in the market square, bookshops flogging nearly new titles in untidy heaps for a pound or two, and lectures on fighting globalisation or becoming a vegan. For lunch, the granary bread sandwich in The Brioche was so crammed with crayfish, rocket and parmesan that my wife and I had to share it. It helps, of course, that Totnes was probably designed by John of Gaunt rather than Tesco, on a gradient which gets steeper after you pass beneath the splendid medieval arch. The higher you climb, beyond the Norman castle, the wackier the shops and shopkeepers become. Next day, the drizzle was a bit harder. We

went west, to the Georgian town of Modbury and then to Bigbury-on-Sea, where the tide rolls back each day to reveal a sandy causeway leading to Burgh Island and an award-winning art deco hotel where Edward VII and Mrs Simpson might have stayed in its 1930s heyday. Today, the hotel gates are barred to any visitor who hasn't booked. You'd better settle for a pint and pie in The Pilchard Inn next door, before dashing back to the mainland without getting your feet wet. Wherever you go in this corner of Devon the food is terrific, but in Dartmouth, a selfproclaimed gourmet town, your credit card must be in fine fettle. One evening, we drove down the hill into the town, while the lights twinkled on the steep hillside of Kingswear across the river, to grab the last table at The Seahorse, famous for the roasted monkfish signature dish by celebrity chef Mitch Tonks. Having flirted with telly fame and running a public company, Mitch has gone back to basics: buying his fish each morning on the quayside at Brixham and using a charcoal base to roast it at searing temperatures. No expense was spared, however, on the design decor which matches West End standards, so bills can top £50 per head. But that obviously doesn't worry diners, because this place has an atmosphere of warmth and friendliness. Last year, Mitch added a cheaper gaff next

door: Rockfish. Designed to resemble a beach hut inside, it offers fish and chip lunches in cardboard containers which cost about £50 for three, including drinks. Kids crayon happily on paper tablecloths, and young mums look ecstatic. Luckily the weather cleared just in time for us to tackle the day trip voted one of Britain's best. It's the brainwave of Dartmouth Steam Railway, which took on the line between Kingswear and Paignton when British Rail gave up in the 1960s, and today carries more than 200,000 passengers a year. The line itself, climbing the hillside to give panoramic views through the trees across the River Dart, was built by the one-and-only Isambard Kingdom Brunel and the engine gasps a shriek of relief when it gets to the peak. Since the 1990s, this train ride has been teamed, on a family day out ticket, with an open top bus ride between Paignton and Totnes and a riverboat journey on the Dart from Totnes back to Kingswear. All services run to a timetable, so you make the journey as fast or as slowly as you like. The boat ride back along the Dart to Kingswear in the evening light, past the Dimbleby family pub in Dittisham and Agatha Christie's former home high on the hill, and blessed with an hilarious commentary by Johnny Harris, convinced me the glorious South Hams merits an early return visit.

Stepping Towards A Greener Future There has never been a better time to look at ways of reducing your energy bills. Our Government has signed up to drastically reducing Carbon Emissions by 2020 and are introducing financial incentives and capital funding schemes this year to encourage us all to “Go Greener”. The Feed in Tariff Scheme for Solar Photovoltaic (Electric) panels has already been an amazing success and even with the much publicised reduction in tariffs this year it will still represent a return on capital of over 8% which is tax free. Later this year will see the introduction of “The Green Deal”, a loan scheme which will fund the introduction to domestic properties of renewable technologies and higher levels of insulation which can be paid back by the savings made on energy bills. The “Renewable Heat Incentive” will also follow shortly, designed to encourage solar thermal, heat pumps and biomass boilers by paying a rebate to

the property owner for every kilowatt of heat that is produced from efficient renewable technologies. Installation of air and ground source heat pumps which offer up to 300% efficiency, can be adapted to existing heating and hot water systems and have the added advantage that the installation cost usually only attracts 5% VAT. Solar thermal panels (at 5% VAT) can provide most of your domestic hot water requirements for free during the summer months and what is more you will soon be paid for doing so!! There are many other ways of reducing your energy costs such as heat recovery systems, boiler management systems and low energy lighting. Combining all these new technologies within your existing property can be remarkably simple and if teamed with a wood burning stove or wood burning boiler can provide an attractive low carbon alternative to conventional heating systems. Exciting developments in wood burning

stoves bring together high efficiencies and the latest contemporary designs as well as providing security of energy supply which will help to offset the uncertain future of conventional energy resources. Rather than heat just one room, modern stoves can provide ducted hot air around the house which can be linked to air source heat pumps for those times when you are unable to light the fire. They can also duct cool air in the summer months if required. Come and talk to the Low Carbon Energy Experts at our showroom Unit 13d, Riverside Park, in Wimborne and see for yourself how you can plan to take steps to a more comfortable, exciting and attractive “Greener Future”. Alternatively, telephone 01202-888561 or visit www.lowcarbonenergycentre.co.uk for more information.

CARB THOSE CRAVINGS We’ll all be going back to basic comfort foods this year say trendsetters. So it’s time to revisit the potato and give it a modern twist. Unless you’re involved in planning the opening ceremony at the Olympics, it’s likely you’ll be thrifty in 2012. Shopping lists may take on a more carb-friendly tone, as we swap Atkins-style dinners, for filling, economical meals made with cheaper, less fashionable ingredients. Leading this starchy charge is our newly-crowned Mr Potato Head, James Martin, who’s heading up the Many Faces Of Potatoes campaign and responsible for finding a winning potato recipe to feature in a national TV advert

13%

of Britain’s entire Vitamin C intake comes from the potato.

this summer. “Potatoes are such an important part of British life. They’re healthy, delicious, and extremely quick and easy to cook,” says the Saturday Kitchen presenter. “This competition not only offers budding chefs up and down the country the chance to show off their culinary skills, but it will also hopefully inspire more people to cook with the great British spud. I bet there are hundreds of people with a family favourite potato recipe - and I, for one, can’t wait to taste them.” So if you fancy being on TV, or just need some hints to push you in the right direction, here are some tantalising potato facts, plus five recipes to get you going.

Vitamin C

There is more in a portion of new potatoes than in an apple.

fibre

There’s more in a jacket potato than in a bowl of bran flakes.

iron

You’ll find more in a serving of new potatoes than in a portion of steamed spinach or a pint of Guinness.

I am a tenant currently in a one year tenancy which is due to expire on the 30th September 2012. I have just been told by my employer that I am going to be made redundant at the of March 2012. Due to the economic climate and time of year I am concerned that I may not find alternative employment. Therefore, I was thinking it may be better for me to move back to my parents house and surrender my tenancy early. My initial contact with the Landlord is he is not willing to release me, can I just move out and hand back the keys? What are my rights, it’s not my fault I am losing my job?

You have signed and entered into a fixed term agreement which is legally binding. Unless you have a break clause in your Tenancy Agreement (some tenancies do offer this at around the six month mark, you will need to read your Tenancy Agreement), you are responsible for the rent for the whole term up to 30th September 2012. This of course does work both ways, if the Landlord ever wanted the property back during this term, he cannot ask you to move out either. You say the Landlord is not willing to release you? This is likely to be due to the extra expenses that will be incurred in finding a replacement tenant. It might be worth approaching the Landlord ASHLEY CROSS - £800 PCM again and suggesting either you will find a replacement tenant yourself or Second floor apartment you are prepared to pay the additional costs incurred in finding a suitable Second floor two double bedroom apartment enjoys all the amenities of replacement through an Agency.

MANGAN OF MANY PARTS

Stephen Mangan is returning to the role of quirky detective Dirk Gently in the new BBC Four series, which started last week. The comic actor talks about making friends with Matt LeBlanc on the set of Episodes and why his kids will love him as the voice of Postman Pat in a new film.

Stephen Mangan has just had a fitting for a Seventies wig and he's shocked that his own curly moptop wasn't deemed big enough for the part. "It's hard to believe they're actually going to have to add hair to mine," he says. "The mind boggles I know, but those dudes from the Seventies really went for it hair-wise." The comic actor, known for his roles in Green Wing, Episodes and more recently as a fugitive 142

Tony Blair in a new Comic Strip Presents, has been cast as former McLaren team manager Alastair Caldwell in Ron Howard's latest movie Rush, about the dramatic events in Formula One racing in 1976.

"They've had to send off to Alaska for more hair for me, because they wore it long and low, like dog ears, with sideburns that just won't quit. It's going to be quite a barnet bomb when that goes off." Hair jokes aside, it's been quite a remarkable 2012 already for Mangan. He's only just finished the second series of Episodes with Matt LeBlanc, which involved filming in LA in January, and is due back on TV in the first full BBC Four series of Dirk Gently, based on Douglas Adams's quirky detective novels. He's also part way through voicing Postman Pat for a film version of the classic children's story and, come the summer, he'll be on stage at the Royal Court in London as a pregnant man in futuristic comedy Birthday. "It's exactly the kind of situation I want to be in," says the 43-year-old Londoner about his varied career. That Dirk Gently has been recommissioned after the 2010 pilot is due largely to Mangan's wide-reaching appeal and

his obvious enthusiasm for playing one of his favourite fictional heroes. "The pilot was really different and original and, even though I'm in it, I think it's really great," he says. Gently's very particular take on crime solving is a far cry from forensic CSI-style shows. Rather, Gently's methods can be summed up by the word 'holistic', Mangan says. The detective has a big white board in his office, on which he writes down absolutely everything to do with the case - and then tries to connect all the dots, the actor explains. "It's unlike anything else on telly - it's a double act really between Dirk and Richard Macduff [Mangan's Green Wing co-star Darren Boyd], who's a comic superstar in his own right. I always hoped they would see sense and make some more." Although based loosely on the 1987 novel Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency, the series uses totally original stories. "We felt we couldn't do justice in an hour to those books and they're pretty unfilmable as written. All three episodes are very different in tone and you get a different Dirk with each one," says Mangan. He's staying tight-lipped about the plots, although he will say they're "incredibly convoluted". "He's on the run from the police in one of them and in another there's a bit of romance in the air, which for Dirk is a surprise because he's probably the


MANGAN OF MANY PARTS

most asexual character on TV." There's also an episode set entirely at Cambridge University (Mangan's alma mater) which, thanks to the magic of TV, was actually shot in Bristol, along with the rest of the series. "You'll never know!" says father-of-two Mangan, who relished the opportunity to go West and shut himself away to learn lines. "It was sad to leave my family behind, but Dirk never shuts up, so it was all I could do to get the lines learnt every evening. I wasn't much use to the rest of humanity. "I had to leave the set, go home, learn lines for four hours, go to bed, wake up, film and repeat - that was my life for seven weeks." Dirk Gently is a timely antidote to all the serious detective dramas on telly right now. "There seems to be a vogue for dark, realistic, gritty detective series, apart from perhaps Sherlock. Dirk has so much humour in it. How many other detectives mix detection with quantum mechanics or drive a 30-year-old brown Austin Leyland Princess?

"He's kind of un-placeable. I wanted to make it difficult to pin down which era he's from and try and make him as different as possible from all those other detective shows."

STEPHEN MANGAN ON... •

Playing Postman Pat: "He's an icon. Who wants to be James Bond? I got to be Adrian Mole and Dirk Gently and Postman Pat!"

Being a Twitter fan: "It's just like being in the pub with several thousand people. And you can find people and say something to somebody you don't know without having to stalk them."

With both Dirk Gently and BBC Two's Episodes being recommissioned, Mangan admits there's a certain pressure to perform again, but says: "I feel that pressure with everything I do, every job, you're only as good as your last performance, so it doesn't matter what you've achieved in the past, you've got to go out there and do it again. "With Dirk and Episodes, I hope to be making both series for years to come, so I'm desperate to make them both as good as they can be." Mangan says he's finally got over his initial nervousness about starring in a show with Friends star Matt LeBlanc, who plays a heightened version of himself to Mangan's and Tamsin Greig's English screenwriting duo. "It took a while," he laughs. "I learned quite early on in my career that the most important thing, when you're working, is who you're working with. "With Matt and Tamsin in Episodes and Darren in Dirk I'm very lucky because they are all about as good as you can get in our business."

How to keep Harry Redknapp at his beloved Tottenham Hotspur: "I'm just working out a kidnap plot at the moment, I might chain him to a radiator because I don't want him to go anywhere."

Rush, the film about F1 stars Niki Lauda and James Hunt: "It's exciting to know Ron Howard's directing it because look what he did with Apollo 13. I think Rush could be really special."

His Postman Pat co-stars are impressive too: Jim Broadbent, David Tennant and Harry Potter actor Rupert Grint are all on the bill and recording sessions are being worked around their commitments. "I still haven't convinced my four-year-old that it actually going to be me. He'll work it out, but then again it's a cartoon, it's not as if I'm going to be up there with a ginger mullet and postman's hat on." The film also requires Mangan to sing. "I can sing, but Postman Pat is meant to have the voice of an angel, it's meant to be a bit of a SuBo moment when people hear him, so I'm not sure I'm quite up to that standard." With so many strings to his bow, you'd imagine Hollywood might soon come calling again. Mangan says he'd consider moving there in future as long as it was right for his family. "The one thing I wouldn't do is go to LA and look for a job, because I think that would be soul-destroying. But if the right job came along, sure I'd go and work there."


Review LA ROCHE Located on the edge of Poole harbour with uninterrupted views of Poole bay, La Roche is based within The Haven Hotel in Sandbanks, Poole, part of the FJB Hotel Collection. This award-winning two AA red rosette restaurant offers a seasonal menu created by executive chef Jason Hornbuckle, reflecting the finest local produce. Jason trained with some of the world’s leading chefs, including Bruno Loubet at the Michelin-starred Four Seasons Hotel restaurant in London’s Park Lane. With 25 years of culinary experience behind him, Jason took the helm at La Roche in October 2011 and is certainly making an impact. La Roche dining room itself has the elegance of a fine dining restaurant, yet the warmth of a bistro and all tables have a sea view across Poole bay, an absolute must for dining by the sea. The restaurant was buzzing with the sound of people chatting and having fun (an extremely rare experience in an English hotel restaurant, where whispering is unnervingly the preferred choice of communication).

The wine list was extensive and well selected to accommodate for all tastes and depth of pockets. I however, rather unhappily, did not indulge in a bottle (being a school night) and instead opted for a glass of the excellent house wine selected by our Waitress. The fixed menu was impressive, very well put together and extremely refreshing. Such choice and exceptionally good value. We started with the usual selection of bread, or so I thought... The bread course is one of those things that’s seemingly unimportant, something to hold back the hunger pangs, however this was a delicious course in its own right. Warm crusty fresh bread rolls, some specked with sundried tomato. After eating our second portion of the addictive rolls, our starters arrived, my selection of the Mackerel Rilette was really quite stunning, visually and taste wise. This continued to be the theme for all three courses. I had opted for the Sea Bream as my main course, an unusual choice for me, being a carnivore at heart, and I wasn’t disappointed. Beautifully presented with subtle flavours that perfectly matched the Bream and the Sauvignon I had to accompany. And so to pudding, I must admit I perused the menu and was unsure

whether I would be able to manage a dessert. However there is, amazingly, always room for something sweet. The head chef made the near impossible decision for me and chose his perfect Coffee Parfait. The prettiest dish yet. Other diners looked at me with admiration as I was presented with my work of art. The perfect ending. I must also mention the quality of service, from the moment we arrived until we were waved off into the chilly February evening, the service had been impeccable. Professional and clearly experienced staff had insured a perfectly timed meal, at no time were we waiting or feeling rushed. A truly enjoyable meal! La Roche offers a superb fixed price menu, which includes coffees and petit fours, offering two-courses for £23.00 or three for £29.50, Monday to Saturday, lunch and dinner. The restaurant also serves up a fixed price Sunday lunch menu of two-courses for £23.00 or three for £29.50.

Review INDI’S

Westbourne

The delicious garlic chilli chicken

146

Walking along Westbourne high street you can catch a waft of the gorgeous aromas oozing from Indi’s which sets your taste buds off and drawers you in. We entered to a friendly welcome from the staff who kindly took our coats and showed us to our table. The restaurant was very busy, even for a Tuesday evening and the atmosphere was lively with lots of laughter and chat which we find an absolute must when dining out, as who wants to be sat in a dull lifeless restaurant? I know I don’t. We were immediately offered poppadoms and with our drinks order taken we were left to ponder over what to pick from the extensive menu that seemed to cover almost every angle, even vegetarian, with a plethora of meat free options and also many seafood and fish options that you would be hard up to find in a traditional Indian restaurant. This goes to show how forward thinking Indi’s is, it has moved with the times, creating exciting and unique modern cuisine to cater for every guest that walks through their door. Once we had a look through the menu we had a few questions about some particular dishes, our host CJ was more than eager to answer our questions and helped me make my decision, being a lover of curry, I have a very sweet tooth and particular about the heat of my dish as not wanting to scar my taste buds for life I was considering going for a signature dish

of Indi’s‚ the Garlic Chilli Chicken which had a couple of chilli pepper icons to represent the heat of each curry which helps guests gauge the heat of their curry - I was a little wary of this factor so when mentioning to CJ ‚“is this hot” he gave me some advice, like someone who knew each dish like the back of their hand. At Indi’s the heat of a curry is not how hot the curry is, but it’s about the spice of the dish, having the correct blend that complement each other, not to overpower the pallet. It was reassuring to know our host knew what he was talking about. My Guest opted for the Curried sea bass which sounded gorgeous too. We ordered some sag aloo, coconut rice and mango nan to accompany which I had never had before, I usually go for a peshwari nan but was recommended by CJ that the mango was that little bit more exciting and I wasn’t disappointed, packed full of coconut with sliced mango dusted over the top it was the perfect side to match the garlic and chilli in the main dish. After devouring these mouthwatering dishes we were well and truly satisfied, If it was to have ended there we would have been more than content, then the sweet menu was popped under our noses, we decided it would be rude not to and chose to sample a third course! In my experience, the desserts on offer in Indian & chinese restaurants are often ready made frozen things with no appeal what

so ever, so when I didn’t see the usual unimaginative deserts I was even more eager to try. We went for the chocolate puddling with some mango sorbet which we shared, it really topping off a fantastic meal, packed full of gooey chocolate that ran out of the pudding when you dug in & the sweet sorbet that really cleansed the pallet. I was truly impressed with our visit to Indi’s, the service was outstanding not only to us but we could see around us that all the diners where receiving this high level of attention to detail which made the overall atmosphere and dining experienced one of the best I’ve had in recent times, The pricing is very reasonable, a little higher than your standard Indian restaurant but this isn’t your standard restaurant. Indi’s goes above and beyond to meet your needs and is the ideal place for a first date, group party or even a Mother’s Day, book now and treat your mum to a well earned lunch or dinner at indi’s.

I run approximately seven miles three times a week but the weight just isn't coming off. Why? Running is an energy efficient mode where you are working with oxygen and glucose and if you run for too long chances are you will release too much cortisol and burn muscle. So with distance running you will lose weight but not so much fat. Chances are you will become skinny fat. It is far more effective for weight loss to work on short bursts of high intensity and create an oxygen deficit referred to as EPOC. I keep hearing about protein shakes. Should I be having these? Protein shakes are a great way of getting protein in the body. Protein creates satiety i.e. you will be full up for longer and helps preserve muscle so great if you want to get lean and fit. Whey protein is relatively new on the market and is the by product of making cheese, research suggests that it is ok for short term fat loss and muscle building Another option is hemp which is a great natural plant protein and healthier, a good alternative because a lot of the protein shakes contain additives. I can't seem to shift the weight off my bum and thighs. How can I spot train these areas? A lot of this is genetics, but genetics are your DNA blueprint which is exactly that a blueprint. I believe that these can be changed but you are going to need to create the right mindset and then apply the correct nutrition and exercise. There are some experts in the industry that now believe that spot reduction is possible - watch this space... I've cut my calories back to about 1200 a day. I've lost a stone but I've still got one more to go but I'm really struggling to shift more than half a pound each week. Why is that? All calorie counting will do is lower your leptin levels and create an anti-starvation effect where you will crave more sugar rich foods. It has now been proved beyond any shadow of a doubt that calorie counting is flawed and will put you on the road to long term weight gain. More importantly you need to optimise your hormones and do HIIT (high intensity interval training).

The Wave 105 presenter talks about healthy eating

In my last column I wrote about weight-loss and my attempts at succeeding after the glutinous festive season with my goals. Going on a ‘diet’ has definitely made me more aware of what I put into my body and the affects it has. Even though I have never been anti-veg and fruit, in fact I am quite a fan, making sure I eat a balance of them is not something I particularly concentrate on. I had an interesting guest on my show this week, TV favourite Dr Christian Jesson, who really reiterated the importance of a balanced diet. He spoke about a new report* which reveals that not enough of us are eating the right things. He used iron as an example, particularly with women, as 90 per cent of women are not getting enough and almost 25 per cent of women have a dangerously low intake of iron. His reasoning for these scary figures was that it was down to people carrying out faddy diets in order to lose weight, diets that they read in magazines or in the newspaper or hear that their favourite celebrity is following. It is a popular misconception that cutting out certain food groups is a sure way to lose weight and Dr Jesson discussed that fact that many of the people surveyed thought of red meat, in particular, as being a bad food. Together with fried foods and stodgy carbs, red meat is always something I make a conscious effort to cut down on or even stop eating altogether when trying to be healthy. He said: “When we are on a diet we tend to get faddy and picky about what we eat and due to that we do tend to miss out on certain food groups.”

This is where people like me get easily confused, because one day, one thing is good for us and another day, another thing is not good for us. Dr Jesson cleared this up for me though and said: “A healthy diet is all about balance and eating each food group in moderation is a must, this should include red meat along with white meat, fish, fruit and vegetables” and he recommends: “ eating one portion of red meat two to three times a week” as a good amount.

I have also always believed that supplements such as vitamin C, iron etc are a great way to stay healthy but Dr Jesson said that taking pills to compensate for deficiencies in your diet is not a good idea. He said that a supplement pill cannot provide the same nutrients that a healthy diet can. So that was me well and truly told!

SPRING INTO ACTION Refresh your make-up bag with spring’s glowing new looks. Lisa Haynes unveils the beauty trends to tap into.

Just as the days are getting a little lighter, so too should your make-up bag. Leave those dark, wintry palettes behind and embrace this season’s fresh beauty vibe, inspired by summer meadows, Miami sunrises and seaside shades. Ignore any frost and ice outside and channel these sunny looks instead.

CANDY COLOURS Goodbye smoky eyes, hello sugar chic. Colour is back with inspirations like candied fruit, sorbet and macaroons for those with sweet tooth tendencies. The mood is bolder than wishy-washy pastels but more muted than brights or neons - look to the sugary jars of a sweet shop for inspiration. YSL even christened their latest spring/summer collection ‘Candy Face’. Creative director of make-up Lloyd Simmonds says: “Her smile is as bright as shining sugared drops and syrups: shocking cherry, tangerine, grape and pomegranate, crystallised rose petals and mint.” GET THE LOOK: It’s all about the ‘eyes-cream’. Choose your favourite sorbet hue and make sure it contrasts with your eye colour. For a more subtle effect, try a candy-coloured eye pencil and smudge.

GIRLY GLOW A youthful, fresh-faced complexion is this spring’s skin must-have. The ultra-feminine look is achievable at any age with a baby doll palette of pinks, mauves and browns. A combination of the tones on eyes, cheeks and lips make for a soft, romantic look. Bourjois chief make-up artist Cassie Lomas says: “Keep it interesting by mixing up textures matte on lips with a hint of shimmer on eyes and cheeks or vice-versa. “The baby doll look requires fluttering eyelashes to complete it.” GET THE LOOK: Achieve a fresh and girly look with a flush of apricot, peach or pink on the apples of the cheeks to instantly brighten the skin.

Specialists in smile creation

“Your teeth fixed in a day” At South Coast Dental Specialists we are now able to secure fixed teeth onto implants placed into your jawbone all within 3-4 hours from start to finish. Whether you have a few remaining teeth and are struggling with your partial dentures or indeed in you have full dentures and find them difficult, we can help you have fixed teeth in one day. The technique can also be applied to both the upper and lower jaws, and can even be carried out in both jaws in the same day. In addition the procedure is painless and can be carried out under sedation for our more nervous patients, and post operative discomfort is kept to a minimum with simple painkillers. Over the last year or so we have worked closely with the experienced Waters Edge ceramics to develop predictable and accurate techniques which are proving a huge hit with the patients we are providing

this treatment for. After a short period of consultation, we plan your treatment very carefully and give you a written estimate of charges. Assuming all goes well with the consultation and examination process (usually just two short visits ) we then book you in for implant placement and at the same time our technician is on hand to construct your new teeth. The teeth provided on day one we term as provisional teeth, as soft tissue changes and technical constraints prevent us from securing on your final teeth from day one. However, only 2 or 3 short painless visits are required 4 months after your initial “teeth in a day“ appointment, for us to construct your final definitive teeth. Here are some before and after photographs of patients who have had this treatment.

BAG IT! BIN IT! The Highways Agency is calling on road users to help tackle roadside litter on England’s motorways and major A roads. The Agency estimates it removes nearly a quarter of a million sacks of litter from England’s motorways every year, but a roadside message campaign last summer reminding drivers to dispose of their litter responsibly saw a decrease in the amounts of litter collected on motorways in North West England and the East Midlands. "Litter is an unsightly and unnecessary burden and one that we can easily avoid – that's why I am asking people to take one simple step towards make the roads a safer and more pleasant environment for everyone. The money and staff resources spent removing nearly a quarter of a million sacks of litter from England’s motorways could be far better spent elsewhere.

“Following the ‘Bag it, Bin it!’ message is an easy way to reduce litter. If all drivers kept a bag in their vehicle to store rubbish and then disposed of it safely, it would be a really positive move in tackling roadside litter.” Roadside litter is not only unsightly, but is also a threat to the environment and wildlife and can block drains and cause flooding. For highway authorities, clearing litter diverts much-needed resources away from road maintenance and repairs, while items thrown from moving vehicles can be a hazard to other road users. The Highways Agency plans to repeat and extend its roadside message campaign during the build-up to the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. The Agency will also look to work with Defra and Keep Britain Tidy to raise public awareness of the dangers and costs of litter, and ensure that England’s motorways and major roads are set to provide safe and pleasant journeys during the Games.

steering wheel and keyless entry/start. Jaguar's design team, led by Director of Design Ian Callum, specified two exclusive Artisan interior colourways for the Special Edition models; Navy with Jet headlining and Truffle with Canvas headlining. Convertible hood colours have also been carefully selected and include Black, Blue, Grey and Brown. Special Edition treadplates and stainless steel pedals are additional discreet enhancements.

ROAD TEST LEXUS RX 450H Toyota and its flagship brand Lexus have been at the forefront of hybrid technology and the fruits of their efforts are nicely showcased in the revised Lexus RX 450h.This all-wheel-drive model competes against the likes of the BMW X5, Mercedes-Benz ML and the Range Rover, but outscores them all on several counts. Its hybrid format means the Lexus is exempt from the London congestion charge, is around half the company car tax for cars in this sector, and returns much better fuel economy – best in class at 44.8 mpg combined.Priced from £44,500 and with S, SE-I, SE-L and SE-L Premium specification, the RX 450h is powered by a 3.5 V6 litre petrol engine offering 295 hp but boosted by 174 hp front and 67 hp rear electric motors. It starts silently by using just an electric motor before the petrol engine seamlessly cuts in. The main electric motor cuts in automatically to use battery power at speeds up to 25mph and you can choose to run on just electric power for almost two miles in city driving conditions. Drive to the wheels is via a CVT automatic transmission which has a fully automatic mode or a manual tiptronic gearshift. Also, the driver can choose ECO, EV (electric) and SNOW driving modes. Top

speed is 124mph and 0-60mph is nippy at 7.8 seconds. And while the combined fuel figure is 44.8 mpg, the urban figure is still 42.8 mpg and the extra urban 47.2 mpg, showing how the RX 450h is consistantly frugal. The technology may sound complex but as a driver, you just don’t notice it. The car is user-friendly, simple to operate and drives with great fluency, quietness and comfort. My test model was in SE-L trim, costing £54,105 and as you might expect, is laden with equipment including rear and side view cameras and self-levelling four-position air suspension. Other features include leather upholstery, luxury carpeting, heated, ventilated and electrically-adjustable front seats, climate control, cruise control, keyless entry and pushbutton start, head-up display, remote-touch audio/navigation, Bluetooth connectivity, automatic wipers and lights and an electricallyoperated tailgate. And that’s the short-list! The RX 450h seats five adults, and has 490-litre loadspace with the seats in use.The cabin is welldesigned, has a true premium appearance. The exterior is not as striking as the Range Rover, but the RX 450h atones with its greater eco-appeal and lower running costs.

FOR Strong visual presence, great driving dynamics, value for money specification. AGAINST Minor downsides: over-wide wind-screen pillars which cut visibility, and a high rear boot sill which makes hauling out the shopping even more of a chore. BY NICK FLETCHER

A CHAT WITH THE HEAD IAIN ROBERTSON BUCKHOLME TOWERS BUCKHOMLE GOES BONKERS ABOUT BOOKS! I’m never sure who likes dressing up more, the pupils or the staff! Any excuse, it seems, and out come the costumes, giving everyone a chance to behave like children for the day. World Book Day is a permanent fixture in the school calendar these days and a fantastic opportunity to celebrate books of every kind. The children are asked to either dress up as their favourite book character, or, as many of our older pupils do, write their own stories, create their own characters and arrive in school as that character. The opportunities for being creative are brilliant, both from the writing point of view and the costume-making point of view. Nell and William, for example, came up with the idea of being a reporter and a cameraman, and wrote a story about a cake thief. The story led them to follow a trail of crumbs which strangely ended at the Headmaster’s study door…..

Rhys wrote a story about a racing robot and spent a large part of the day wearing a very impractical but fantastic silver robot costume that he and his mum made. William was the best Tin Tin you are ever likely to see outside the realms of CGI, while Lukas simply came as his hero, Horrid Henry. The day ended with older pupils ‘buddying up’ with younger pupils and sharing their books and stories, and a parade to show off all the costumes to the parents just before home time. Reading sits ‘top of the pile’, in terms of importance, at Buckholme, particularly at the younger end of the school. World Book Day is just one way to instil in our pupils a love for and curiosity about books. TO CLOSE, YOUR 11+ MATHS TEASER: How many thousandths must be added to 4.206 to make 5? And the solution to our last teaser: Beef steak costs £2.50 per 1/2 kg. Find the cost of 1kg 600g.
