HEARNES INTRODUCE NEW WINDOW DISPLAY

HOLIDAY HOME OWNERS BEAT THE TAXMAN

Hearnes of Ringwood are proud to offer a new illuminated window display, advertising their clients properties within the prolific town centre office. Directors Anthony Holtom and Sally Gravener pride themselves on the presentation of all aspects of marketing, keeping a step ahead of competition whilst offering their clients the best form of

DORSET Property Agents Bournecoast are celebrating a recent landmark court case where holiday landlords were victorious over the taxman in a dispute over whether their properties are deemed investments and therefore liable to business taxes. The new ruling could allow holiday home landlords who let their properties - to claim business property relief and therefore reduce their inheritance tax (IHT) bill. HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) had previously tried to pigeonhole holiday lets with other buy-to-let and rental properties, which all are subject to a 40% inheritance tax charge upon the owner’s death. However, a recent tribunal heard the taxman’s argument that furnished holiday lets should not be considered a business for IHT purposes, and instead ruled that relief should be given if the owner had substantial involvement with the holidaymakers. As a result of the ruling, holiday lets should now be able to claim business

exposure possible. Hearnes offer detailed floorplans with every property they market, alongside beautiful glossy brochures with eyecatching photographs. If you are thinking of moving and are looking for a friendly yet pro-active Estate agent with a wealth of local knowledge, contact Hearnes of Ringwood on 01425 489955 or ringwood@hearnes.com

IPHONE APP LAUNCH Margaret and the team at Paul Watts Estate Agents are very pleased to announce the launch of their iPhone app, which can be downloaded now from iTunes – just search for Paul Watts. Following on from the already successful mobile version of their website, the iPhone app makes it even easier to access the latest information or contact Paul Watts whilst on the move. The agents have already noted a marked

increase in use of mobile media to view their website, www.paulwatts.co.uk, and expect this trend to gather pace in the coming months. Margaret commented “Our software providers ‘thebu2iness.com’ offer us excellent support to ensure that we are well placed to take full advantage of the latest developments in IT. They have provided an iPhone app with fantastic functionality so we hope

as many home buyers as possible will access it and see how quick and easy it is”. In addition to their use of the latest technology, the team aim to offer very high levels of customer service at every stage, and would love to hear from anyone thinking of buying or selling a property in the Queens Park, Charminster or Throop areas of Bournemouth. They are easy to get in touch with after all!

property relief, which in turn provides relief from IHT on the transfer of relevant business assets on death. The subject of the ruling was a UK based holiday property but it could have implications for those who also let properties overseas. Des Simmons, Managing Director of Bournecoast Holiday Agents said: “The ruling was acutely interesting as there was no clear evidence that the owner had in fact been involved with the holidaymakers, which formed the basis of HMRC’s rules for deciding on the relief. He added, “While HMRC can be expected to take their arguments to appeal, the decision of the Tribunal is good news. We now just wait to see how many of our current landlords can take advantage of this ruling and how many new landlords start to take advantage of the property market as it is and catch on to the tax benefits available when purchasing properties to let as furnished holiday accommodation. We are perfectly positioned at

Bournecoast to help potential holiday letting landlords as the local buy-to-let specialists with over 50 years experience in the holiday letting industry.” Des also emphasised the importance to those with holiday lets to maintain proper records to allow them to claim the relief at a later date, or to use a long established and reputable company who would keep these records for them as a matter of course. Bournecoast have been providing holiday lets both the visitors and to Buy-to-Let landlords in the Christchurch, Bournemouth and Poole area for over 50 years and are still family run to this day. They pride themselves in providing quality properties and cater for both families and couples’ markets. For more information on available investment properties to rent or buy, or the buy-to-let market in general, please visit www.bournecoast.co.uk or telephone 01202 437888.

GREYS LEAGUE CUP 2012 After what has been a fairly short season for some teams, the Under 13`s League Secretary Trevor Selby, has decided to go the extra mile for the footballing youth by creating a new cup event for the players. Trevor says `last year we were still playing league games right up until the middle of April, given that the winter months were far wetter than this year; so I saw an opportunity to do something extra for the teams. `The event has been kindly sponsored by Greys Estate and Letting Agents, based in Poole, as they are involved in youth football already with Holt United and Ringwood Town. Greys will also be there on finals day to attempt to raise some money for their chosen charity, Julias House; a very worthy cause for less fortunate local children` `For my part, I have managed to get 20+ teams together and

have a format that will be four different groups, with the top team in each group progressing to the semi final on Wednesday 9th May held at Wimborne Town FC and then final on Sunday 13th May held at Holt FC.` Chris Till of Greys added, `I am a big fan of youth football, given my son and his friends involvement – so to be able to be a part of this is great. I shall watch the results with interest and look forward to being there on the day of the final to raise as much as we can for Julia`s House – maybe even get a footy star of the past to join us!` This will be the first of its kind within the Dorset League and it is hoped that the event will be well supported along the way and on the final days; with all locals invited to come and watch the youth of today – before they get snapped up by local professional clubs!

SUCCESSFUL FIRST SIX MONTHS FOR CONNELLS LETTINGS Since Connells opened a lettings department at its office in Poole in September, the lettings operation has gone from strength to strength and the team is continuing to expand in order to deal with increasing levels of business. Commenting on the success of the division, Aimee Ramage, Lettings Manager at Connells, said: “I am extremely pleased with how well the lettings operation has taken off. We have grown the division considerably over the past six months and we now cover a much wider area including Bournemouth, Ferndown, Verwood, Ringwood, Southbourne, Winton and Christchurch.” “Our close links with the company’s sales offices and mortgage advisors in the Dorset area are providing new opportunities for landlords looking to expand their portfolios or invest in property for the first time,”

continued Aimee. To help cope with the busy market conditions Connells has seen since the start of the year, the team has appointed Senior Lettings Negotiator Suzanne Kaddah, who has over four years experience of working in the lettings industry. Suzanne will work alongside Manager Aimee Ramage and Lettings Coordinator Holly Ostler. Aimee believes the professional approach is the main reason for winning landlords over. “We work hard with landlords and tenants day-in and dayout and this relationship can last for years. This isn’t going to happen if we don’t provide the highest level of service, as there’s plenty of other lettings agents to choose from. This is why we have specialist advice on financial and investment opportunities and a network of local and national offices to find potential tenants from all around the country,” says Aimee. Currently, the

rental market in the Dorset area is very active, which is great news for landlords and tenants. In some cases, Connells are letting properties within 24 hours of a landlord instructing them, so tenants need to be quick off the mark if they see something they like. “The lettings market has got stronger as the year has progressed. We are registering increasing numbers of quality tenants looking for properties to rent across Dorset. However, there is still a case of demand outstripping supply and we desperately need more properties to let,” says Aimee. For further information about the lettings market, to find out more about Connells’ lettings service or to arrange a rental assessment, contact Connells lettings department in Poole on 01202 673977 or email bournemouthlet@ connells.co.uk

FIRST TIME ON THE MARKET IN ALMOST 400 YEARS! Situated in half an acre Ashley Lodge, a former Gate House to Somerley House, is a delightful thatched cottage located on the edge of Ringwood with access and views of the Ringwood Forest. The property offers a wealth of charm and character and is now ready for the next owners to further

develop and improve the cottage for generations to come. The property does date back we believe to 1482 although the first entry on the title deeds is 1622. The Cottage is known to some locals as “Shave’s Lodge” which is believed to originate from the name of the first residents.

Numerous postcards illustrating the circular iconic lodge in the early 1900’s were produced by a local printing company ( attached) who were located within the shop currently occupied by W H Smith. A True piece of history not to be missed! Vacant possession keys with sole agents

PROPERTY SALES AT FIVE YEAR HIGH

There’s been a huge upturn in property sales in the first six weeks of 2012, according to award-winning estate agency Connells in Verwood. The local agent is delighted to report a surge of interest from buyers resulting in a 22 per cent increase in sales in the first six weeks when compared to the same period last year. Unsurprisingly, Connells’ bumper sales figures in 2012 coincide with an increased number of buyers registering their interest in purchasing a property with the branch and more online house-hunting activity. Indeed, leading property portal Rightmove recently announced recordbreaking online activity for January 2012 when it saw almost 800million page views in the month. “The number of property purchases Connells has seen in the first six weeks of this year is at its highest for five years,” says Branch Manager, Clive Oldridge. “This combined with higher numbers of buyers in the market and online means it’s a great time for anyone looking to sell their home. Demand is high but sellers need to act fast to take advantage of the

current surge in interest.” Due to the huge appetite to buy at the current time, Connells is urging anyone who is thinking about selling their home to get in touch now rather than waiting to market their home in the spring. “There is pent up demand from buyers and not enough properties to fulfil this demand,” Clive continues. “The market is looking extremely buoyant in 2012 and with the busy spring period fast approaching it’s a great to time for us to sell your home. Equally, anyone looking for advice on mortgages should make an appointment with our dedicated Mortgage Services Consultant. We often have access to exclusive mortgage products only available through Connells so buyers should come and discuss their options.” If you are interested in moving home and would like to take advantage of the huge upturn in sales in 2012 so far, please contact your nearest Connells branch on 01202 824111 or email: verwood@connells.co.uk to book a free market appraisal on your property.

De-Clutter If you’re feeling overwhelmed by the clutter, check out ways to liberate rooms. We choose some storage solutions for every budget. If someone peered into your drawers and cupboards, would they be enviably neat and orderly or stuffed full of a spaghetti-style tangle of items that would take hours to unravel? Most people probably have at least one area like the latter; a ‘secret’ dumping ground where clutter accumulates and despite their best intentions, they never get around to sorting it out. But as spring arrives and we yearn for more airy, organised spaces to make us feel calmer and in control, de-cluttering fever tends to strike. Identify which type of hoarder you are and then follow a personalised clutter culling plan, with smart storage solutions to match.

ANXIOUS HOARDER You feel emotionally attached to your things in a way that’s probably inexplicable to others, and the thought of getting rid of things you might end up missing prevents you taking any action at all. You’ve probably kept your grown-up children’s personal possessions and old toys, have drawers full of paperwork, shelves groaning with books and crave more space. But it can feel impossible to relinquish things which you associate with memories and feelings. Action plan: Get a friend to go through items with you so they can talk you through the process and will be dispassionate about making decisions. Make a target to get rid of one box a week so you don’t feel overwhelmed and the ‘loss’ of the items will hardly be noticeable. Give to charities so you know your much-loved possessions are helping good causes. Store smart: Don’t stress, you’ll have a space for every treasure in the 18-drawer vintagestyle Harlem Industrial Apothecary Cabinet, £995, from Alexander & Pearl. Just as smart is the contemporary and roomy Leonhard Pfeifer Abbeywood two-door, three drawer chest, £599, from John Lewis. Clear kitchen surfaces with a sleek chrome kitchen rack with wine shelves, £260, from The Holding Company, and pop useful household essentials into a wooden wall unit, £115, from Cox & Cox.

Four White Retro Storage Cubes These retro cube shelves are a fun and attractive way to display photographs or store books. £ 89.95 www.dotcomgiftshop.com

SECRET HOARDER No-one would know you had any clutter unless they looked in your cupboards, which are overflowing with possessions. You’re brilliant at disguising it all, and have invested in under-bed boxes, hanging drawers in wardrobes, and filled every cranny in the loft. As you like to be in control and set yourself high standards, you can’t bear to start de-cluttering until you can tackle the whole house, but that’s such a large task, you keep putting it off. Action plan: Target the house room by room, but allow enough time to complete the sort-out. Make sure you don’t slow yourself down because of indecision by having a couple of boxes marked ‘Keep’ and ‘Recycle’ so you can easily deal with an overload. Store smart: Take the burden off bursting cupboards by adding storage in overlooked areas. A handsome but compact Worcester two-door sideboard, £312, from Sainsbury’s, could fit under stairs or on a landing.Utilise space under a bath by fitting an oak veneer Kingston bath end panel, which conceals a storage area. £64.98, from Croydex. Make sure cupboards are well organised by investing in a Betta Living built-in wardrobe, which start from £790 (doors extra), and its Heel Deal shoe storage unit for 20 pairs, from £590.

TIME-POOR HOARDER A family, busy job and/or caring for an elderly relative leaves you little time for socialising, let alone worrying about de-cluttering. There’s a tide of possessions throughout your house that you’d love to sort, and corners in every room that are filled with piles of belongings which make you feel fraught. You fill bags with unwanted goods but rarely find time to take them anywhere. Action plan: Storage needs to be easily accessible in every area of your home so everyone finds it easy to help put possessions away. Encourage each member of the family to contribute one large box of clutter on a set date and insist on one room remaining clutter-free so you can constantly see the benefit of curbing that untidiness. Store smart: Make a first step with an antique brown wicker stair basket, £20, from All Tidied Up, and then add image-adorned toy and shoe storage bags, £20 each, from Cox & Cox, which will make it fun for kids to clear up. Encourage them more with smiley face Happy stackable crates, from £9.95, from The Holding Company. Clear up paperwork with a zingy green Bisley three drawer filing cabinet, £250, and a magazine trug, £35, both from John Lewis. Another of their affordable storage solutions is a set of three Water Hyacinth storage trunks, £80. 32


CREATIVE HOARDER If you’re not busy with at least three projects at once, as well as juggling the rest of your life, you get bored. You love constant change, challenges and variety, and your home reflects that with an eclectic mix of possessions you gather while on your travels. You don’t see it as clutter because you believe each has a story to tell. But occasionally it can get out of hand, particularly if you rarely find time for housework and are easily distracted, even if you occasionally attempt re-organising. Action plan: Even if the clutter isn’t driving you crazy, it won’t allow you to show off those treasured possessions in their full glory. Culling will be tricky for you but you could periodically store away a selection just to give your rooms a revamp, and invest in more tables or display chests so you can group possessions to give them a feeling of harmony. Store smart: Boring storage certainly isn’t your style! Instead, invest in pieces with the ‘wow’ effect, such as a wooden Brooklyn Industrial Union Jack chest made from reclaimed boat timbers, £675, from Alexander & Pearl. Just as stunning is a curvy Marie Antoinette-inspired sideboard with a pink gloss crackle finish: La Muse de Versailles, £1,895, from Sweetpea & Willow. Or alternatively, go for an Industrial Style Postale Trunk, £129.95, from Flora Furniture. Display those treasures in a Zigzag modular bookcase system formed from white lacquered wooden boxes, from £995 per four box module, available to order from DesignSpaceLondon.

ANOTHER DOSE OF TV TALENT Britain’s Got Talent is back! Featuring more dancing dogs, singers and contortionists, head judge Simon Cowell is joined by Amanda Holden and two new additions to the panel - David Walliams and Alesha Dixon - for the sixth series, which airs Saturday nights on ITV1. Cowell and co. reveal what to expect this year, with an exclusive fly-on-the-wall account from the auditions.

Where can you find contortionists, drag acts, dancing dogs and singing grannies? On Britain’s Got Talent of course, which is coming back to a TV near you for a sixth series. Simon Cowell and Amanda Holden, who was replaced by guest judge Carmen Electra during the London rounds as she recovered from giving birth to her second child, are joined by Alesha Dixon and David Walliams on a new-look judging panel, following the exits of David ‘The Hoff’ Hasselhoff and Michael McIntyre. On the first day of auditions, there’s a constant chattering while the audience wait for the judges, soon replaced with a huge round of applause when they walk to their seats.Walliams revels in the glory and jokingly poses provocatively for the crowds, while Dixon waves politely. Over the course of four hours and several breaks (with Cowell grabbing bites of chocolate brownie in between), 16 acts perform, including an acrobatics teacher who can bend her body into some remarkable poses, three middle-aged men dressed as dinner ladies and a multi-tasking musician. The lively energy soon tails off, as the audience gets restless, yet the judges remain as perky as ever. At one point, Dixon and Cowell squabble over an act, but generally, the panel seems to be in agreement.

42

With the gruelling audition process over for another day, the judges open up about the new show...

THE BOSS SIMON COWELL

Age: 52

Credentials: As the mastermind behind TV successes such as The X Factor and America’s Got Talent, Cowell has boasting rights to being the head honcho. The panel: “There’s a great chemistry between all of us. David is utterly bonkers and unpredictable, everything I thought he would be. What I like about him is that he doesn’t pretend to know something. Alesha’s like a canary out of a cage, she’s loving it.”

Audition highlights: “I always think I’m never going to be surprised but then somebody comes on and blows me away. That’s what I love about these auditions: someone being good when you just don’t see it coming.” And the winner is?: “A really, really talented person. You want the winners to go on and have careers, not just pick up a cash prize. But I’m still going to bet on a dancing dog being there until the end!”


THE FUNNY MAN DAVID WALLIAMS Age: 40

Credentials: As one half of a comic partnership with sidekick Matt Lucas, Walliams has kept the nation in stitches on shows like Little Britain and Come Fly With Me. The panel: “I’m loving it. It’s a weird one you can’t prepare anything because you’re just reacting to people. The role felt natural straight away. I’m really enjoying winding up Simon, it’s fun. I just wish I was sitting a bit nearer to him!”

THE ACTRESS AMANDA HOLDEN Age: 41

Credentials: With six years of BGT experience under her belt, Holden can stand her ground with Cowell when it comes to judging talent. However, the mother-of-two, who won an award for her performance in the West End production of Shrek The Musical, has also had a successful TV career in shows like Wild At Heart, Kiss Me Kate and Cutting It. The panel: “Alesha and I get on really well, she’s like me - girly, fun and feisty. I didn’t know David before the show or what sort of judge he would be but he’s excellent. He’s taken to it really quickly. He’s got an excellent poker face too.” Audition highlights: “There was a group of people that passed my goosebump test with flying colours. We’ve certainly never had an act like this on the show before and they gave me that feeling in my tummy that I always get when I think I’ve seen a winner. “I’ve seen enough of the street dancing though. Diversity and Flawless had such a wow factor, which they still have now. They set the bar really high and a lot of the dance troupes we’ve had on the show since just don’t live up to the expectations we now have. Bring back lycra and sequins, I want more of that!” And the winner is?: “Someone or something we’ve never seen before. It’s a very special year for the Queen with her Diamond Jubilee, so I want to find the best act yet.”

Audition highlights: “There was a singing duo that really stood out. They blew us away. We’ve seen some great young comics, although it’s hard to find a comedian that everyone thinks is funny. I’m a shameful exhibitionist, so if there’s any chance to get up on stage, I’m there! I was really excited by one of the acts so I went up and joined them for a song. “There was a performing pest controller and a guy who sang a song for his girlfriend that didn’t work though.” And the winner is?: “I’d like the winner to do something that we’ve never seen before and for them to be undeniably talented.”

THE SINGER ALESHA DIXON Age: 33

Credentials: The former Mis-Teeq singer has carved out a solo career as well as making it on the small screen, following her Strictly Come Dancing win. The latter led to a judging stint on the BBC show, before she headed over to Britain’s Got Talent. The panel: “I think the best way to describe it would be mad! We’ve had lots of colourful contestants, lots of banter between us judges, some amazing talent and some not so amazing talent. It’s been really nice coming from Strictly, which is a little bit more reserved.” Audition highlights: “I loved the brilliantly bad acts. They’re not necessarily talented but they have a special quality that entertains you and you really root for them. “I do, however, hate it when people are so bad that they’re not even funny. It’s always a let-down if they come and talk their act up, then they’re just terrible.” And the winner is?: “Whether it’s a dancing dog, a comedian, singer or dancer, it has to be someone that connects with the audience and works hard at their talent.”

Could It Be Magic Magnetic Ball Clock £16.95 www.gizoo.co.uk This contemporary clock does away with the conventional use of hands and replaces them with a magnetic ball.

Look Into My Eyes Eye Clock £18.99 www.firebox.com Based on a design patented in the 1920s, this quirky timepiece uses a pair of eyes to replicate the time. The left eye represents the hour, and the eye on the right looks to the minutes - sounds simple enough. It might seem a little bemusing at first, but it’s sure to attract some admiring glances.

Of the best gadget clOcks As youngsters we may only care about the big and little hands when it comes to telling the time, but as we get older we appreciate that clocks can make decorative pieces and take pride of place in our homes. We’ve uncovered an eclectic collection of six time machines that not only will help you get a move on in the morning but will quirk up a hallway, office or living space in your abode.

App of the week: SwiftKey X: Free one-month trial on Android Forget unreliable predictive text technology. With SwiftKey X on your Android device, you’ll be typing at surprising speeds in no time. It is powered by natural language technology and understands how words work together - this means that even the most inaccurate typing will make sense, and it also guesses the word you may want next. 60

Eyes Down St Michel Clock Table £89 www.made.com This striking side table just so happens to have a huge clock built under the glass face. The super-stylish tulip-shaped stand completes the quirky clock and we think you’ll be shifting existing furniture to make some space for this pretty decent deal.

Watch The Birdie Modern Cuckoo Clock £149 www.4living.co.uk Each hour you can have an authentic cuckoo call out the time or choose from 12 other bird sounds, all recorded from Mother Nature. You’ll be pleased to hear, though, that a light sensor ensures the avians don’t chirp through the night.

Eyes Left, Then Right Focus Clock £16.99 www.firebox.com Available in three colours, the pendulumlike clock face is modern and will look perfect rocking from side to side in a bedroom, kitchen or office.

For The Kids Gro-clock £29.99 www.gro-store.co.uk The illuminated display indicates when children should be sleeping and when they can get up by using sun and star graphics. The night mode glows blue and the stars count down until the sun comes up. When the clock face turns yellow, it’s wake-up time.

Five minutes with... Gabby LoGan TV presenter Gabby Logan chats to Carrie Gregory about the Cadbury’s National Trust Easter Egg Trail, the Olympics, and what she might be doing now had she not been surrounded by sport from such an early age

What can you tell us about your work with Cadbury? It’s a National Trust collaboration and they’ve organised fun days out around the Easter weekend. You can go online and have a look - it’s basically for kids to go on treasure hunts at National Trust locations. Some of them are really elaborate, so there will be lots of games and fun things for the children to do. Will you be taking part with your little ones? We’re going on holiday on Easter Sunday and on the Saturday I’ll be working, but on Good Friday there’s one locally to me so we’ll try to get down there. What’s been the highlight of your career so far? It’s very hard to pick one out, but some of the big sporting occasions have been very impressive. I presented the 2005 Champions League final in Istanbul when Liverpool won, and I was pregnant with my twins, that was a great night. The Rugby World Cup final in 2003 was fantastic as well. I also loved the Olympics in Beijing, so I just know this Olympics is going to blow that out of the water for me from a professional point of view. You must have been thrilled to get the call from the bbc.? I was waiting around all day for the phone to ring. I was beside myself, wanting to get it confirmed what I was doing, and I was really pleased when I found out. The show I’m doing comes on after the 66

news - it’s going to be guests and meddle winners and chat and action, a real mix. Do you think you might have followed a different career path had your family not been so involved in sport? Yeah, probably. If my parents had been virtuoso violinists, there’s a good chance I would have gone into music, I suppose. You are influenced by what’s around you. With my kids, although I want them to love and enjoy sport, equally I want them to have opportunities to do other things. Victoria Pendleton says she only started cycling because her brother was doing it and she kept getting dragged along to the track. Often you get into something just because somebody else is doing it. I did a law degree, but by then I’d kind of found the media and broadcasting. How did you find doing stand up for sport relief? Some people think it’s the most petrifying thing you could ever imagine. People said to me, ‘I would much rather run a marathon than do that’! I was very scared but it was really good fun, I really enjoyed the experience. I got a lot out of it and it was all towards a great cause. Charity and fundraising is obviously close to your heart, are there any challenges you’d refuse to do? I was asked live on air to do a parachute jump by an incredible soldier. I had to say yes, because I just couldn’t say no to him. He keeps tweeting me dates but so

far they’ve all been during the football or the Olympics, so I can’t do them! My husband Kenny was like, ‘You’re mad’! You’ve made the transition to talk show. Are you enjoying it? I love Live With Gabby. I’ve got lots of great guests and the people I work with are lovely. It’s really nice having something completely different to sport, and I’m lucky at the moment that I’m able to do both. Which guests have wowed you the most? Oh, that’s easy - Chris Isaak! I used to like Wicked Game in the early Nineties but I wasn’t prepared for how lovely, talented, handsome and amazing he was. I didn’t stop talking about him for two days. He was just such a nice person! I’ve met some amazing real-life guests who have done amazing things with their lives and overcome brilliant challenges. I’ve been totally wowed by their bravery, skill and dedication - it’s been a real rollercoaster of emotions! With everything you’ve got going on, is there anything left to do? Perhaps realise kenny’s dream of owning a farm? He has got his own farm, where he grew up in Scotland - but it’s not very practical for us in London! If we could move the farm nearer to us, the kids would love it. We keep thinking one day we’ll move out of London, but we both really love the city. It’s a great place to bring kids up as there’s so much on your doorstep.

DREAM HOME Queens Park Avenue in Bournemouth has been looking fantastic in the recent sunshine, with lots of magnolia trees in bloom, and the view of the golf course always a delight. This property has a particularly fine magnolia tree at the front, and a great view too. Offering an opportunity for a real project, it is currently a 4 bedroom house but with lots of scope to improve and space to extend (subject to consent of course). Very much a blank canvas, likely to appeal to buyers looking for the right property to transform into their own dream home. The rear garden is a great feature. Unlike many properties in the avenue, the garden here is pretty level and it is well planted and very secluded. There are also lots of colourful shrubs to the front, and a pavioured in-andout driveway to a double length garage.

DREAM HOME

104

Imagine yourself in your own country house – but right in the middle of town. You wake to the peal of bells from the local churchyard, you stroll out into your garden, the orchard beyond, the smell of freshly-mown grass on the lawn, the sight of a gardener toiling hard in the flower beds. This is relaxation at its best, the pace of the City confined to the working week – this could be a different world. It’s what you have been searching for. And here at last, you have it - all on your doorstep. At Church Hatch, the trip to the bakery to buy fresh croissants in the morning, is just outside the garden gate; the shopping is in Christchurch town centre; the yacht club; and the calm, the serenity of the Priory – they’re all here, at your beck and call. Plan the garden party; fantasise about your daughter’s wedding and her reception on your lawn in the walled garden, the marquee billowing in the breeze, with the backdrop of Christchurch Castle behind. Drool on the splendour of the Queen Anne architecture, one of the town’s pre-eminent listed buildings, the prestige and acknowledgement that this is what you have fought so hard to achieve. This is a house – or, actually, both a house and an attached mews cottage - for a family to enjoy, to grow up in, to weekend in. Fabulous entertaining rooms downstairs; plenty of bedrooms upstairs, all with lots of scope to do with it what you really want (subject to planning consent, of course). This is a place in which to put down your roots.

PRICE GUIDE £1,700,000

Church Hatch is now on the market for sale, with a guide price of £1,700,000. For further information and to arrange a viewing, please call Youhome® on 01202 544500 or Knight Frank on 01935 812236.

Vibrant Vessels

114

A quick twitch of the net curtains shows that spring has firmly sprung, and with natureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s floral bounty ripe for picking itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to find a happy home for the daffs and tulips. Perfect as a gift or decorative accessory, vases come in all shapes, sizes and colours and - better still - offer an affordable way to add a splash of colour or interest intoa room.Glass vases filled with colourful blooms are perfect for window sills to draw in the eye and create the illusion of extra space and

light.To create a feature for a sideboard or occasional table, combine an odd number of vases in different block colours, shapes, sizes and materials for a stunning, contemporary look. Refresh some more traditional settings by using metallic golds, silvers and coppers to contrast with more neutral palettes. Whatever the style of your interior, bring the outside in and make a style statement worthy of any season.

In addition, the Bournemouth office is offering a Cracking Easter Deal! If you instruct Martin & Co before the 15th April, all new landlords will only pay half price set up fees.

Duty of care ... All agents share a duty of care, but how far does this go?

LET AGREED

LET AGREED

It is a common misunderstanding by tenants that they are the agent’s customers. Nothing could be further from the truth. The interests of tenants and landlords are opposed so an agent cannot possibly work for both, a lettings agent works solely for its landlords in a contractual agency based relationship. As an agent we are obliged by law to provide the tenant with a gas safety certificate, clear payment schedules, HMO licence copies, protect the deposit, obey health and safety notices and warning’s, and ensure any evictions proceedings are done correctly and fairly. As a landlord it’s important to know that the agent you have acting on your behalf is qualified to do so. Whilst the contractual relationship is with you, you want to make sure that your agent is providing a good level of customer service to your tenants. This will ultimately hold the let together, ensure the tenant moves in and, if the property is managed, ensure they want to stay there. Choose an agent that is knowledgeable and above all always acting on your behalf, to ensure you get the highest possible rent, efficient management service, and smooth running of your investment. The agent you let your property with should always be acting on your instruction, alongside advice to guide you within the legal guidelines.

ASK THE PROPERTY EXPERT Since April 2006, if a Landlord or letting agent takes a deposit from a tenant then this must be protected by law. Up until now, the penalties imposed for not doing so has been severe. Although, still severe if not protected the amended legislation has closed some loopholes, where landlords have successfully appealed against the penalties imposed on them for protecting the deposit late. Currently a deposit must be protected within 14 days from receiving the deposit, failure to do so means a Section 21 notice (absolutely vital if you need to evict a tenant) would not be recognised in a court of law and the tenant was entitled to three times the deposit given plus their deposit!! After the 6th April 2012 this has been extended to 30 days, so good news for landlords, as this gives them more time to protect the deposit and issue proof of certificate along with an ’Information for Tenants’ leaflet to the tenant, however, there will be no exceptions for those who go over the 30 days. The penalty for not protecting the deposit within 30 days will be fined between one and three times the deposit and will be unable to use a Section 21 notice until the deposit has been protected and the penalty is settled with the tenant, even if protected before going to court. Importantly still, the tenant can seek compensation immediately after the 30 days. The tenant can also make an application to a county court for a penalty award even after they have vacated.

winkworth.co.uk

If your property is currently with an Agent, then you should be aware that you are equally responsible along with the Agent to ensure the deposit is protected. At Move On Rentals, we have always sent a copy of the Deposit Certificate to our Landlords and Tenants to give them peace of mind. Full information can be found on the Deposit Scheme sites of these new rules. If you like to be kept up to date with the latest legislations, you can opt into our Email newsletter.

Light my fire Period homes have enduring appeal and one of the main reasons is their original features. Not only do features such as fireplaces, cornicing and sash windows make your home more valuable and nicer to live in, they also make it more sellable. But, of course, they haven’t always been seen as an asset, as it used to be quite common to rip them out. Period homes with the original features removed or covered up are a sorry sight, but you can restore them to their former glory with a little time, money and effort. Fireplaces give a room a focal point, as well as adding character. A working fireplace can also make the room warmer and cosier - who can resist curling up in front of a roaring fire on a cold day? If you have a period home but no fireplaces, or you want contemporary fireplaces for a modern home, eBay is a great place to look for bargains. It’s a good idea to watch some auctions first to see what kind of price fireplaces like those you’re interested are going for. If you’re tempted by buy-it-now items, be careful not to pay over the odds, as they can be expensive. It’s probably wise to get an expert in if you have a stone fire surround that needs restoration, but wooden and metal surrounds are generally straightforward for DIY-ers to restore. If the surround’s painted (or varnished) and it’s in poor condition, you need to remove it and then fill and sand for a good finish. You may be able to get away with just filling and sanding, depending on the state of the paint and assuming you want a painted finish. Metal fireplaces often have rust on them, but don’t be put off by this. The quickest and 136

How-to-tip There are a number of ways

easiest thing is to use paint that can be applied straight to rust. I recently restored a Victorian fireplace that was completely rusted, but using Hammerite Direct to Rust Metal Paint in Smooth Black and Satin White (£7.98 for 250ml from B&Q) has transformed it into a lovely period piece. The paint isn’t water-based, but it dries quickly and will save you time, especially if you’re dealing with a lot of rust. Decorative fireplaces are one thing, but if you want a working one, it may not be as simple as you think. For starters, the chimney will need to be swept and tested to see if it leaks smoke. If it does, it will have to be lined. The chimney opening may even be plastered over at the bottom or capped on the roof, so this would have to be removed. In leasehold properties, removing the chimney cap may require permission from the freeholder. There are restrictions on what fuel you can burn in certain towns and cities, so visit http://smokecontrol. defra.gov.uk/locations.php to avoid getting into trouble.

to remove paint from a fire surround and although you may end up doing only one, a combination of methods is usually most effective. A good paint stripper, such as Polycell Maximum Strength Paint Stripper (from £7.19 for 500ml) is invaluable because it will take off layers of paint without having to make much effort. You may also find a heat gun (Bosch PHG 600-3 Hot Air Gun, £37.99) and scraping tool useful, as long as you don’t scorch the wood - or yourself. When it comes to sanding the surround, using a detail sander (Bosch Prio, £59.99) will speed things up, but you’ll need sandpaper for all the nooks and crannies. Work from coarse to fine sandpaper to get the best finish.

LET THE

GAMES BEGIN As Twilight draws to a close and Harry Potter has reached its epic finale, The Hunger Games - based on the best-selling novels by Suzanne Collins - looks set to become the next big thing.

With the first film of three, The Hunger Games, recently opened in cinemas, stars Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson offer their thoughts on the phenomenon, their gruelling training and on-set pranks. With the sun setting on the Twilight Saga this November and the Harry Potter series embarking on a magical future away from the big screen, there’s a fantasy franchise-sized gap just waiting to be filled. Step forward The Hunger Games. Based on the best-selling book trilogy by Suzanne Collins, the series is already loved by many, including Twilight author Stephenie Meyer, who blogged about being “so obsessed” with the futuristic novels within days of the first book’s publication in 2008. The Games refer to an annual televised battle - a twisted punishment for a past uprising and ongoing government intimidation tactic - in which two teenagers from each of the 12 districts in the fictional nation of Panem (the ruins of what was North America) are randomly chosen to compete until only one survivor remains. Like a cross between 2000’s Japanese cult thriller Battle Royale and The X Factor, each ‘tribute’ has to win audience votes while using their survival instincts to fight for their lives - or be killed. Oscar-nominated Winter’s Bone actress Jennifer Lawrence takes centre stage as Katniss Everdeen, 142

a 16-year-old from the impoverished District 12 who volunteers to take her younger sister’s place to enter the Games, with Josh Hutcherson starring alongside as fellow tribute Peeta Mellark. “Katniss is this futuristic Joan of Arc - she’s a symbol of hope, freedom and revolt, and she’s a hero that doesn’t want to be a hero,” explains Lawrence. Hutcherson, 19, was also immediately drawn to his role: “I’ve never connected with a character as much as I have with Peeta, so it was really good to do a role that’s close to who I am as a person. He believes strongly in being true to himself, much like me.” Lawrence admits she had a moment’s hesitation about signing up, before her mum talked her into accepting the role. “When I was doing indies and people were asking me why I don’t do a studio film, I always said the size of the film doesn’t matter. What matters is the script, the story and telling a story you care about,” says the 21-year-old.“This was a story I cared about and I wasn’t going to do it because of the size of it. The books are important for our generation to read. We live in a world that’s obsessed with reality television and it’s completely desensitised us to the shock factor. People’s tragedies are used for entertainment - the more tragic, the higher ratings and more entertaining it is. She adds: “The size of the film definitely made me pause - because it’s life-

changing. But I don’t want to pass on something just because I’m scared.” The actress revealed that X-Men: First Class, in which she played shape-shifting Mystique, gave her a taster of the training involved. “X-Men was more difficult because it involved gym work, whereas Hunger Games training was more running outdoors and working out in ways you don’t realise you’re working out. It’s like playing on a gigantic jungle gym and swinging around, as opposed to doing 100 pull-ups,” Both stars had to undergo gruelling and intensive training to get into shape. And despite being a natural sportsman, Hutcherson - who has appeared in The Kids Are All Right and most recently in Journey 2: The Mysterious Island had to pile on 15 pounds of muscle to play Peeta. “I love stunts and physicality, so that was right up my alley. The dieting took about four weeks but it was a lot of eating. That was the hardest part eating a lot of protein,” recalls the Kentucky-born actor. “I was eating things I don’t like. Not PopTarts sadly, but always grilled chicken breast. By the 10th one of the day, I’m like, ‘I can’t swallow this bite. It’s too much!’” It was just as painful for Lawrence, who trained with an Olympic archer and had to learn parkour to play free-running expert archer Katniss. “I


had to do lots of running because Katniss never walks anywhere. But I’m not athletic, I move like an idiot, especially when I run,” she admits. The actress, also from Kentucky, is quick to deny rumours that she damaged her spleen during training. “I was doing wall runs, where I had to run up the wall as hard as I could. All of a sudden, my feet stopped,” she says. “So I hit the wall as hard as I possibly could have. I was unbelievably sore, but went to hospital for a scan and I’m totally fine.” She believes the training has paid off: “Josh is faster than me, but I can hit a bullseye. If somebody stood really still, I could probably kill them with a bow and arrow.” Lawrence confesses she once accidentally gave

Hutcherson “a concussion” on set, but says it was revenge for a prank he played on her. He adds: “I got Jennifer pretty bad. I made her pee in her pants after I put a life-size dummy in her trailer. She went in to go to the bathroom and got terrified!” Both insist that the film, which Collins co-wrote and is executive producer of, does justice to the book. “We are all genuine fans of Suzanne’s work and want to stay true to it. We love what she’s trying to say and want to say it,” says Lawrence. Director Gary Ross didn’t “downplay the violence” despite the 12A rating, she adds.“We weren’t going to make a watered-down version of what we love. If you take the violence and brutality

out of the movie, you take the entire heart out of it,” she explains. With buzz building around the release, Lawrence and Hutcherson are aware that their lives are about to change for good. “No matter what, my life will never be like this ever again,” says Lawrence. And Hutcherson admits he’s taken aback by the fans’ anticipation: “It doesn’t feel real. I’m a huge fan of the books, so to have so many people excited about the film before it’s even out is amazing.” He hopes it will match the achievements of Twilight and Harry Potter but is careful to note it’s entirely different. “It’s a very fascinating world with a lot of interesting characters, so I hope people will feel that it fills the void.” The Hunger Games - Supporting cast Liam Hemsworth (Gale Hawthorne) - Katniss’s best friend. Hemsworth says: “Gale thinks the Hunger Games are very wrong. He always felt Katniss and him were each other’s only escape from this horrible world they live in.” Lenny Kravitz (Cinna) - Katniss’s personal stylist and closest confidante. “Cinna tries to develop Katniss’s personality so people will like her,” says Kravitz. Elizabeth Banks (Effie Trinket) - Effie is District 12’s flamboyant PR for the Games. “It was a dream of mine to be in from the get-go, and Effie was the one I knew I could play,” says Banks. Woody Harrelson (Haymitch Abernathy) - District 12’s sole Hunger Games victor and Katniss and Peeta’s mentor is sarcastic and rarely sober. “I did try to get into the headspace of the character so I went on a bender - that helped,” jokes the actor. 143

South Coast Dental Specialists

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

BEFORE

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.

Candy stripe

This season’s biggest colour trend should carry a health warning for its sugar content. With shades of lemon sherbet, parma violet, candyfloss pink and minty blues, the high street is resembling a retro sweet shop. Catwalk designers have gorged on icy sorbet hues through to juicy confectionery shades, leaving fashion followers wanting more. This saccharine palette is the ideal way to work ladylike chic with a fresh, feminine edge. So satisfy your sweet tooth with this spring’s pastel style.

If you like the idea of mixing up your pastels with minimum effort, the candy cane look has got it licked... Stripes in a mouth-watering selection of pale shades like lilac, raspberry, lemon and lime do all the pastel combining for you. Stick to bolder stripes to make a dramatic impact, or smaller, random stripes like Blackpool rock for a more subtle approach. If kaleidoscopic pastels are too sickly sweet, just stick to one pastel hue combined with a neutral colour. Beware - horizontal stripes can add the illusion of width, so hunt out a pastel-packed vertical stripe if you’re feeling cautious about a certain area.

Elegance pastel boucle city jacket, £299 www.elegance.co.uk

Sorbet block There’s no need to be greedy with this season’s pastel selection. Wearing one flavoursome single hue is enough to create a bold impact.These sugared almond shades can look cheap when mixed with harsh, dark colours like black, so stick to neutrals like vanilla, cream or Imperial Mint white. If you just want a one-piece taster, try detailing like girly lace, organza or embellishment to add extra interest. Up your sugar content by colourblocking your outfit in the same shade top-to-toe so that every piece is in the same pastel - just make sure your chosen colour complements your skin tone. Keep the rest of your outfit clean and simple to really pack a (tropical) punch.

Dolly mixtures When just one pastel doesn’t hit the sweet tooth spot, opt for a multi-coloured confectionery approach. The pastel trend offers effortless colour combinations to tantalise - try a peppermint tee with a peachy skirt, or a bubblegum pink jacket over a spearmint blue dress. This is all about being creative and teaming pastels together in colour-blocked layers. For a girly take, try combining similar tones like violet, lavender and rose.If the thought of dolly mixing these sugary hues feels daunting, look for ombre, graduated washes of pastels that move from one pastel into another on a dress or top - it’s like elegant tie-dye for grown-ups.

Confidence booster Pick ‘n’ mix If you get indecisive about your candy cravings, you can get a sugar rush from accessories. This season’s bags and shoes are decked out like an ice cream parlour of irresistible sorbet shades. Opt for the restrained approach of just one pastel accessory teamed against a plain backdrop or overload on the calorie count with an all-over candy-coloured ensemble. Pick up extra pastel points with a Neapolitan approach. Look for pieces that combine three different shades to give your outfit a delicious lift. Pastel jewellery may get lost against your skin unless you’re dark-skinned or sporting a summer tan, so stick to bolder pieces like sunglasses or scarves.

If you’re looking for an ego boost, your underwear drawer can help, according to a new study. The University of Manchester has proven a clear link between a cleavage-enhancing bra and increased confidence - prompting the study lead, Professor Geoff Beattie, to call for a stop to “unnecessary boob jobs”. The research was commissioned by Gossard for the launch of the new Super Egoboost bra, £34 (sizes A-G). Gossard head designer Stacey Lindsay said: “We knew how stunning cleavage in a welldesigned, well-made bra can boost confidence and give our customers the feel-good factor - but it’s terrific to actually have the scientific seal of approval!” Chockers Strutt pastel wedges, £35 www.chockersshoes.co.uk

A CHAT WITH THE HEAD IAIN ROBERTSON BUCKHOLME TOWERS EGGS-TRAORDINARY CELEBRATIONS AT BUCKHOLME! It has been a tremendously successful year at Buckholme Towers School and Nursery and we’re only two thirds in! Our Year 7 pupils have celebrated their achievements in earning places at Poole and Parkstone grammar schools – 9 out of 11 of them have been offered places for September 2012 – a fantastic achievement by the pupils and for a school that is non-selective. On top of this, a number of pupils in both Year 6 and Year 7 have been offered excellent scholarships to independent schools.

At the opposite end of the school, our Nursery has been awarded the ‘Enhanced’ Judgement (equivalent of Outstanding) by the Borough of Poole – an achievement about which only very few can boast. Pupils in Years 2 and 3 enjoyed the perfect end to this spring term by heading up to Poole Day Centre for an Easter Egg hunt. The children were in and out of every nook and cranny, including the ladies handbags! The old folks had a ball, but the highlight for the children, apart from enjoying the bounty from their efforts, was having their photo taken with Vera who is about to celebrate her 102nd birthday! The children finished with a song and look forward to seeing the old folks again when they visit the school for our Jubilee celebrations, in the summer. TO CLOSE, YOUR 11+ MATHS TEASER: The price of butter is increased from £1.29 to £1.34 per 500g. How much extra is paid for 6kg?

ALL-NEW AUDI A3 PRICES Available in the Uk from September, the all-new Audi A3, which will be priced from £19,000. CO2 emissions of as little as 99g/km inthe new A3 have been made possible with the help of ‘Audi ultra’ lightweight technology, which has enabled it to tip the scales an impressive 80 kg lighterthan its predecessor. The aluminium front wings and bonnet also contribute to a class-beating kerb weight of just 1,175kg for the 1.4 TFSI model. In terms of dimensions, the new A3 is virtually identical to its predecessor in length and height but it features a longer wheelbase and is slightly wider. The completely redesigned interior of the Audi A3 "breaks new ground in the class in terms of quality and design, with standards of materials, workmanship and ergonomics which genuinely push the boundaries at this level," says Audi. The new Audi A3 will launch with three fourcylinder engines, all of which are essentially new developments. The 1.4- litre and 1.8-litre

Peugeot UK has announced changes to its Electric Vehicle (EV) Sales programme, with an on-the-road price reduction to £21,216 (after the Government’s £5,000 Plug-in Car Grant), a monthly rental from £249 per month over a 3-year term and comprehensive coverage across the country through 23 dedicated EV Specialist Peugeot dealerships. Peugeot’s EV range will grow at the beginning of 2013 with the introduction of a new electric Partner van, which will qualify for the recently announced extension to the Government’s EV grant, with a maximum of £8,000 support towards the purchase price of electric commercial vehicles. The EV range, along

TFSI engines and the 2.0-litre TDI have outputs of 122hp, 180hp and 143hp respectively. Compared with the previous model, they offer fuel economy improvements averaging 12 per cent. The 1.8-litre TFSI is linked as standard to a seven-speed S tronic twin-clutch transmission; the 1.4-litre TFSI and 2.0-litre TDI are paired with a six-speed manual gearbox. All engines in this first phase drive the front wheels; quattro permanent all-wheel drive – and further engines, including a 1.4-litre TFSI with innovative cylinder on demand technology – will follow later in 2012. The completely new A3 chassis has been designed "with an optimum balance between comfort, composure and driver appeal in mind. It works with a finely-tuned power steering system with a highly efficient electromechanical drive and an Electronic Stability Program which makes handling even more fluid and safe at performance limits," the company says. The optional Audi drive select system lets the driver vary the operating characteristics of key components, namely the steering weighting, the throttle response and the transmission shift points (where S tronic is fitted). It can also be upgraded to incorporate control of the optional Audi magnetic ride system with its magnet or heological fluid-filled dampers.

"breaks new ground in the class in terms of quality and design"

with the recently introduced world’s first dieselelectric HYbrid4, displays Peugeot’s commitment to addressing the environmental challenges facing carmakers, communities, businesses and private car owners. Peugeot has introduced a number of technological solutions and services, adapted to an array of customer needs and designed to drive powerful breakthroughs in fuel efficiency and CO2 emissions. These include the introduction of Stop & Start Systems, diesel-electric hybrids and zeroemission vehicles, enabling Peugeot to increase its leadership in the European low-carbon vehicle segment and extend its expertise to other markets. Phil Robson, Peugeot UK’s Fleet and Used Car Director, commented: “2011 marked a return of EVs for Peugeot in the UK. We want to continue to develop our EV strategy as the technology becomes more accepted by consumers and the charging infrastructure continues to develop.”

DRIvERS mUSt CARRy BREAtHALySER IN FRANCE Drivers of all motor vehicles, including motorcyclists but excluding mopeds, will have to carry a breathalyser kit in their vehicle when travelling in France from July 1st this year. The rules will apply to anyone travelling to or through France by motor vehicle in the summer holiday season, even just for a day trip. This measure won’t actually be enforced until the 1 November 2012, giving road users time to prepare for the change. Single-use breathalyser kits will satisfy the requirement. The legal limit in France is 50 mg per 100 ml of blood, lower than in the UK (the UK limit is 80mg). They cost between £1 and £2 and they will be available at ferry and tunnel terminals for crossings to France. It is intended that people will be able to test themselves to check whether or not they are over the French limit. The IAM road safety charity is advising all road users travelling in France to have at least two breathalysers at all times, so that if one is used you still have one to produce for the police if you are stopped. Anyone driving in France is already required to carry a warning triangle and a fluorescent safety vest to use in an emergency. Motorcyclists should carry extra bulbs. Additionally UK motorists and motorcyclists must display a GB plate, and cars should have their headlights adjusted to the right. IAM director of policy and research Neil Greig said: “The new French rule is a genuine attempt to reduce the number of alcohol related-accidents. France’s lower limit means it’s very easy to be over the limit the morning after as well. As always, the best advice for road users is not to drink and drive at all.”the only time they will be checked is during the annual MOT and service.

HEALTH & FITNESS

IS YOUR SLOW METABOLISM TO BLAME FOR WEIGHT GAIN? You’re working out and eating well, but just can’t seem to lose weight. Could a slow metabolism be keeping you from your weight loss goals? It just might. What is your metabolism and what relationship does it have to weight gain? Can you speed up your metabolism to help your body burn more calories? Hang on tight, ‘cause you’re heading for a crash course in metabolism!

WHAT IS METABOLISM?

The calories in your food or beverages combine with oxygen and create the energy necessary for your body to function. Metabolism is the complex, biochemical process in which your body takes what you eat and drink and converts it into energy. Your metabolism is constantly at work, even during rest and sleep when your body needs energy to breath, circulate blood, adjust hormones, repair cells, and grow new cells. Your basal metabolic rate is the amount of calories it takes for your body to perform its basic functions. It affects how much energy your body needs to do its job and helps determine the number of calories you’ll burn each day. Many factors play a role in your basal metabolic rate.

1

The first is your body composition and size. Larger people and those with more muscle mass burn more calories even while resting. This means overweight people usually have a faster metabolic rate than their thinner peers.

2

The second factor affecting your metabolic rate is your sex. Men generally have more muscle and less fat and therefore burn more calories, giving them the advantage when it comes to metabolic rate.

3

Third, your metabolic rate changes with age. The older you are, the less muscle you’re likely to have. As a result, you burn calories slower.

Besides your basal metabolic rate, the amount of physical activity you get and the way your body digests and processes food determines how many calories you burn. While many factors go into your metabolism, the most variable is physical activity. However, exercise also makes the most difference in the number of calories you burn, so amp up your exercise and watch your metabolism rise as well.

SLOW METABOLISM = WEIGHT GAIN?

Contrary to popular belief, a slow metabolism rarely causes excess weight gain. While it would be easy to blame your weight on a slow metabolism, the most likely culprit behind those extra pounds is the amount of calories you consume versus the amount of calories you expend in physical activity. When you eat more calories than you expend, your body stores that away as fat. Your metabolism is a natural process, and your body balances your metabolism to meet your individual energy needs. This is made clear when folks jump into a starvation diet. When you don’t eat, your body slows down the metabolizing processes to conserve calories and energy to survive. You don’t have much control over your metabolism, but you can control the number of calories you burn during exercise. The more activity you perform, the more calories you burn. Having a slow metabolism is rare, and it usually doesn’t cause obesity. Medical conditions such as hypothyroidism and Cushing’s syndrome may slow metabolism and lead to weight gain. But for the most part, the factors that contribute to weight gain include consuming too many of the wrong calories, genetics, family history, unhealthy habits such as too little sleep or not eating breakfast, being very lazy and certain medications.

EFFECTIVE WAYS TO SPEED UP YOUR METABOLISM: 1 EAT MORE PROTEIN

The thermic effect of food is the second biggest calorie burner after Basal Metabolic Rate – depending on the type of food you eat depends on how many calories you use to break it down…protein burns a lot more calories processing it than does any other food – it also keeps you full up for longer

2 INTERVAL TRAINING

Practise High Intensity Interval Training three times per week using bodyweight exercises this makes it ‘Metabolic Resistance Training’ Because you work so hard for short bursts of time with bodyweight or weights you can really ramp up the metabolism for the 24 hours + which means you carry on burning calories a long time after the workout has finished – unlike conventional cardio workouts!!

BOOST YOUR WILLPOWER Losing your gut is as much about strength of mind as it is about diet and working out. Train your self-control like a muscle and you'll boost your ability to resist temptation. This article is from a recent Men’s Health magazine, which in some ways it is quite good, but like most articles from magazines like this, it is still missing the big picture.

Willpower alone is not sufficient enough for you to achieve your goals! You have to couple it with belief i.e. you are going to make yourself get fit and at the same time you genuinely believe that it is going to happen. Live mentally in the moment when it is actually happening i.e. you are losing

that stubborn belly fat and you are looking and feeling fitter and stronger (visualise this exact moment)… When you do this your subconscious (the power house can see nothing else and will help you achieve this goal) cannot tell the difference between what is real and what is imagined, so make the new you seem as real as you can in your own mind, but it has to be a constant thought, in fact write it down and draw it out as a MAJOR life changing goal. Pin it on the fridge, above your bed and in front of the toilet so that you can see it several times throughout the day! Only, when you’re constantly reminded, will you act effectively on your goals.

3 CHROMIUM

Make sure you’re getting enough chromium in your diet to help your body burn more calories. Chromium, which is found in tomatoes and in a supplement form, also boosts the way you burn fat. According to MedlinePlus, meat, eggs, green pepper, apples, banana and spinach are also good sources of chromium. When you supplement 120 mcg of chromium daily, your body benefits by revving up its metabolism.

4 OPTIMISE YOUR HORMONES

What you need to do is here is limit the amount of insulin (fat storing hormone) in your body at any time and promote the fat burning hormone Glucagon – do this by avoiding sugary and processed foods, grains and complex carbohydrates like bread, potatoes and rice

TOP TIPS: You will need in equal amounts desire, belief, planning and persistency for this new you to happen.

DESIRE

How bad do you want it?

5 COLD SHOWER

Take a cold shower each day for 4-5 minutes – as this will dramatically increase your metabolism, enhance your immune system and help with depression!

BELIEF

You must genuinely believe that you are going to get it

PERSISTENCY

PLANNING

Write it all down and have a map, get a personal trainer, join a bootcamp, workout with a buddy (always more successful if you are accountable to someone and have a support network of friends) hence why bootcamp works so well!

Never give up and don’t come up with excuses, be strong! 159
