Please tell me it’s not still raining?! As I write this issue’s introduction, the rain is holding off but it’s still decidedly grey out of doors and no forecast of sunshine on the horizon. All I can say is, we better have one special Summer when it arrives! This issue is crammed full of an amazing selection of properties for sale and to let. Now, we might officially be back in recession, but don’t let that put you off moving as there’s some great bargains to be had out there. On top of all the usuals, if you are penny pinching, but still style conscious we’ve got some great cheap

chic tips on page 31 and we’ve picked our top sofas for you on page 52.

AUSTIN & WYATT NAMED TOP ESTATE AGENT 2012

DAWSONS CLEAN UP AT 2012 CEDIA AWARDS

Leading local agent Austin and Wyatt in Canford Heath are celebrating after winning the coveted title of Bronze Award at this year’s Estate & Letting Agent Awards (ESTAS). The ESTAS are the only industry awards based purely on the votes of buyers, sellers and landlords. The annual awards recognise the best offices in the UK for delivering outstanding customer service and customers are asked to vote for estate agents based on their experience in 2011. Hundreds of agents from across the UK took part and over 33,000 customer votes were received this year, making it

2012 brings Dorset based Dawsons a lot to be proud of. The celebration of 85 years of service has coincided with the most recent CEDIA awards, held on the 20th April 2012 at Hampton Court Palace, where they were yet again recognised as the leading audio visual marine specialist, winning the coveted title of “Best Marine Installation” once again. Dawsons took the honours in this category for; “A technically flawless installation which integrates seamlessly with the yacht’s stunning interior design” according to CEDIA. The installation aboard the Sunseeker Predator 130 M/Y Never Say Never used a fully managed wireless network covering all of the yacht’s internal and external areas and fuses Bang & Olufsen with Kaleidescape, Crestron and Future Automation Picture Lift, all operated simply through an iPad based control panel. As well as offering audio visual control, the iPads effortlessly integrate lighting, blinds and the yacht’s engine management systems via

the largest survey of its kind in the property industry. Kyle Nichols, Senior Branch Manager said “It is a fantastic achievement to have yet again won this prestigious award that was entirely voted for by our customers. We aim to provide a high standard of customer service at all times and I am pleased that our customers are happy with what we strive to deliver”. Martyn Thompson, Managing Director said “When choosing an Agent people want an Agent they can trust and know will provide a first class service. An ESTA provides a recognised hallmark of those qualities”. This year’s

ceremony was hosted by TV property personality Phil Spencer and took place on Friday 21st April at the Hilton Park Lane Hotel in London. Hundreds of the UK’s top estate and letting agents joined Phil for this prestigious awards event. Phil Spencer said “The ESTAS are the most important and valuable awards in our industry. An ESTA is not an easy accolade to pick up, to win one requires a lot of hard work, over a very long period of time.” To get a free market appraisal or to see the properties available to buy, please call your local branch or visit www.propertywide. co.uk.

five Crestron processors. The sleek and user-friendly iPad interface was custom designed by Dawsons highly skilled installation team. Each cabin features its own iPod dock and Kaleidescape Blu-Ray player. On the flybridge, the owner can listen to music or enjoy HD movies and satellite TV, with full surround sound, on two outdoor monitors. The system is ‘invisible’ within the interior design by Ken Freivokh, with a BeoVision 4-50 plasma screen being concealed behind an automated picture lift in the master stateroom and BeoLab speakers hidden behind louvres and flush fitted into headlining to complete the invisible installation. The entire installation provides exemplary picture and sound quality with superior ease of use for both the owner and his guests. With a project build achieved within just six months, it’s clear to see why Dawsons was chosen for their latest in a long line of prestigious awards over the years including; 2008 Winner, 2009, 2011 Highly Commended & Finalist, 2012 Winner.

A RISE IN FIRST-TIME LANDLORDS

LANDLORDS WANTED!

An increasing number of first-time landlords who are attracted by the yields buyto-let properties currently achieve are entering the lettings market, according to local lettings agency Connells in Poole. “A high demand for rental accommodation and a lack of supply of properties to let has helped to push up monthly rental values and the yields landlords can achieve. This along with lower house prices and a greater availability of buyto-let mortgage products, makes buy-to-let a very attractive investment in the current economic climate,” says Aimee Ramage, Lettings Manager at Connells. The buy-to-let market is set to continue growing for the foreseeable future as an increasing number of people have to rent for longer. A recent Consumer Rental Forecast by Rightmove highlighted that 55% of tenants who took

Due to a high number of Lets in recent weeks, the Goadsby Lettings team in Poole urgently require properties of all shapes and sizes for quality applicants, which have been left disappointed due to the

part in the survey would like to buy but can’t yet afford to. Figures from the survey also showed that a third of tenants expected to be renting for the next three years or more*. When becoming a firsttime investor, people need to ensure they instruct an agent that is a member of a recognised lettings body. They should also make sure they fully understand the processes involved in letting a property as well as the type of protection they need against, such things as, the regular payment of rental income and the return of deposits. “Many people entering the rental market for the first time may be unaware that, if their lettings agent is not a member of an officially recognised body such as the Association of Residential Letting Agents, they are immune from any form of disciplinary action for misconduct,” says Aimee. For many years Connells

has been a voluntary member of ARLA, which means they agree to abide by a mandatory code of practice that is rigorously enforced by an independent body. The agents are also members of the Tenancy Deposit Scheme. “We currently have a situation in this country where anyone can set themselves up as a lettings agent, with no formal training or experience and no legal requirement to subscribe to a redress scheme. This is extremely dangerous for both landlords and tenants as these agents may be completely unqualified, have no knowledge of the complex legal and safety requirements and offer little support to landlord and tenants if things go wrong,” says Aimee. To find out more about the local lettings market and Connells lettings service, contact your nearest Connells branch for details.

DIVERSE ABILITIES PLUS GET WALKING FOR OLYMPIC LEGACY INITIATIVE

01 May 2012 – A team of eight from Dorset charity, Diverse Abilities Plus, put on their hiking boots, braved the rain and collectively have walked 201.2km, from Swanage to Hengistbury Head, as part of the Gold Challenge’s 2012 national Olympic legacy initiative. Each member of the team, who work at the only Dorset disability charity that supports children and adults and their families throughout their life, walked a total of 26km each, totalling just over 201.2km, in seven hours. The team from Diverse Abilities Plus consisted of Mark Powell (CEO), Paul Barnard (Retired CEO), Charlotte Curtis (Head of Business Resources), Nick Bold (Head of Adult Services), Mark Freer (Finance Manager), Helen Alexander

(Fundraising Manager), Steph Vaughn (Trainer) and Hugh Felstead (Graduate Trainee). Mark Powell, Chief Executive of Diverse Abilities Plus, said: “All of the money we raise will be going to Diverse Abilities Plus - a charity which we are all incredibly passionate about as it provides such vital support for hundreds of children and adults, and their families, in Dorset. Our target is to raise £1,000 by doing this challenge and we thank those that have

sponsored us already. We would also like to thank The Harbour Heights Hotel, in Sandbanks, for their kindness in supplying lunch for the team on the day – it was most welcome!” If you would to support Diverse Abilities Plus, by making a donation to the team, please visit www.justgiving. com/outofourleague.

NEW BOURNEMOUTH BASED BUSINESS TAKE ON GLOBAL GIANTS Three local entrepreneurs have launched an online offers website set to compete against the international heavy-weights of the World Wide Web. Live Elite (www.liveelite.co.uk) is Bournemouth’s answer to sites such as Groupon and Living Social. Designed to benefit local businesses and residents, Live Elite offer premier level experiences and products at affordable prices across Christchurch, Bournemouth and Poole. The Bournemouth bred businessmen behind this concept have brought together a select group of locally recommended companies to offer the public ‘never seen before deals’ in the region. Live Elite’s unique approach differs to the giants in the industry by having an ‘Elite deal of the week’ instead of an offer per day as the larger competitors currently operate. They have capped the amount of deals available at a manageable level to ensure all customers are able to enjoy their purchase with no disappointments. Steve Crawford, Sales Director comments, “We

are incredibly excited to launch Live Elite and are confident in saying that the titanic’s of this market cannot compete with us on a local basis. Every week our deal on sale will eclipse that previously offered by the competition not only on price but also on quality.” Live Elite uses the power of social networking to promote the weekly offers and have seen an astonishing 2,000+ Facebook ‘shares’ of the introductory deal. Steve concludes, “The public are bored of sites ruthlessly bombarding them with up to three emails a day for discounted services from businesses they’ve never heard of. Our difference is we are recommending deals from carefully selected, trusted and tested organisations.. Our aim is to provide the best local deals for local people…and we are local ourselves.” With a steady flow of exclusive offers up their sleeve for the forthcoming weeks and the drive to help boost the local economy, Live Elite has certainly set the precedence in the online offers world.

CHEAP CHIC

Money might be tight but that doesn't mean you have to cut down on home style. We find out how to source brilliant interiors bargains and treasures from charity shops, markets and recycling sites. We all want our homes to look wonderful but tight budgets can put costly furnishings and luxury homeware out of reach. However, there's a treasure trove of bargains to be found - if you're prepared to explore car boot sales, market stalls, antique fairs and auctions and websites such as eBay. If you've previously dismissed their wares as just someone else's junk, or goods that are unfashionably past their sell-by date, then you're missing a trick. Not only is second-hand chic one of the cheapest ways to transform your home, it's currently all the rage. Unlike buying new items, when buying second hand you can end up with an individual, one-off piece which has a history and tells a story - for a fraction of its original price. "Flea market finds put the fun back into shopping, and you don't have to worry about getting a huge credit card bill at the end," says stylist Liz Bauwens, co-author of Flea Market Chic, which reveals thrifty ways to create stylish interiors. "It's also about creating a sense of history and a home that reflects your life and personality." Reassuringly, you don't have to be a regular viewer of Antiques Roadshow to know how to spot the rubies among the rubble. "Forget about investment - simply go for things you love," says Bauwens. "Focus on just a few types of objects that you like so you can start a collection or follow a theme. Have a mental list of what you're looking for - this will stop you accumulating a jumble of objects which have no cohesion." So turn homeware detective and track down treasures to transform your rooms.


TRICKS OF THE TRADE Most furniture stores have a section where slightly damaged goods, or ex-display models, are sold at discounted prices. It’s always worth making an offer or cutting costs further by asking for free delivery. Provided you’re happy with the shape and quality, you can always get creative and give it a facelift with a coat of paint to hide any defects, or ensure it harmonises with your scheme. “Paint isn’t just for walls and floors,” Bauwens points out. “Few people would think of painting soft furniture such as a leather sofa - but if you haven’t paid much for it in the first place, then you have much less to lose.” Always test a small patch first to check for colour fastness. Look for pieces of furniture which can be broken up and remade - church pews can be re-cut into tables, dining tables cut down to make coffee tables or panelling re-used for kitchen counter tops. Be creative - if there’s a particular design or pattern you like, try stencilling. Floorboards, stairs and cupboards all lend themselves to this technique.

WHERE TO BUY:

Check out sites which specialise in second-hand furniture such as www.preloved.co.uk or www.usedfurnitureforsale.co.uk

32


MIX NOT MATCH Collections of interesting items can become focal - and talking - points in rooms. It could be vintage china, colourful pottery, paintings or quirky displays of anything from old-fashioned utensils to antique hand mirrors. The only limit is your imagination. “The trick is to be methodical. When you go to a market or second-hand sale always start at one end and work your way down each row, looking at every stall in turn from one end to the other,” advises Bauwens. “Don’t dart about, as you can easily miss things. Over time you’ll develop an eye and soon learn to spot your favourites in a pile of clutter. Look out for familiar shapes, colours or designs. “Don’t despair if you find something you like that has a small flaw or chip - if you are prepared to make minor repairs, it will only add to their charm.”

WHERE TO BUY: Charity shops and car boot sales are great sources. To find out about ones taking place in your area visit www.carbootjunction.com or www. carbootsales.org A huge number of antique fairs are held across Britain, such as Kempton Antiques, at Kempton park, Surrey (www. kemptonantiques. com) and the International Antique and Collectors fair held at various locations (www.iacf.co.uk).

33


Sew easy Beautiful, quality fabrics can be hugely expensive but ends of lines, odd rolls or samples offer a more affordable solution. “Finding genuine vintage fabrics from the days before modern dyes is getting harder,” says Bauwens. “But many companies manufacturing today reproduce old patterns, and these are now available second-hand too. “Cut partly-damaged fabrics down to make pillows and cushions, lampshades and trims. A collection of fabric samples could be sewn together to make one curtain or a patchwork throw.” Drapes, curtains, sheets and bedspreads can be found in flea markets. Though they will often be worn or marked, they could be used to upholster bedheads or make ornamental drapes for a bed. Where to buy: The Remnant Room specialises in vintage and discontinued designer fabric remnants and ends of rolls (www.theremnantroom.co.uk).


MAKE IT REAL New homes can lack character and old properties may have had their original details stripped away. If you long to turn back the clock, or enjoy more period detailing, there’s plenty to inspire in salvage or reclamation yards. “Original features - whether it’s a 1950s kitchen or an 1850s fireplace - are celebrated, even if they’re quite battered. They give a house a sense of belonging,” says Bauwens. “These sort of buys require care and planning. Make sure you measure, so you know the piece will suit the scale and size of the room. Also check the quality and that it’s possible to make any alterations so that it’s suitable for modern living.” You can introduce modern and contemporary touches through accessories - old peg rails and shaving mirrors make great additions to bathrooms.

WHERE TO BUY: Masco Walcot, in Stroud, Gloucestershire, specialises in reclaimed architectural pieces, wood, traditional fireplaces and bathroom features. Call 01285 760 866 or visit www.walcot.com Lassco offers a selection of architectural salvage, antiques and curiosities. Call 020 7394 2100 or visit www.lassco.co.uk.

SOFA SO GOOD An influx of family and friends over Easter can expose the fact that your seating is past its best. We find smart seating so you can lounge in comfort and style.


Sofas often make a statement by virtue of their size, but it’s their design credentials that should draw the eye. Playing musical chairs because there isn't enough seating or having unwelcome close encounters as everyone tries to squeeze onto the same saggy sofa can leave you desperate for new furniture. Luckily, the spring sales make this is a great time of year to bag a bargain. But don't just look at the price tag - sit on the sofa you want to buy and test it out in the same way you would a bed. For instance, deep-seated sofas don't suit short people, while those who love snuggling into a squashy sofa will struggle to warm to a lean low-backed contemporary number, no matter how trendy it looks. Get smart about seating by following our guide to some of the best sofa bargains around.

Porada koki dining table £2,029, Panton Chairs, from £120 per chair available in black or white. All from Occa-Home.

53


CLASSIC SEATING

Classic sofa styles, mimicking or inspired by vintage looks, can work well in any setting. Generally, it's best to narrow your search by considering which sofas suit your room's design and scale. It's also wise to opt for loose covers, particularly if you have a family and pets. Bluebell sofa, price from £910, www.sofa.com

Barker & Stonehouse’s Catherina sofa, reduced online from £1,469 to £999 Tesco Direct Oscar Floor Lamp £90, white leather Chesterfield £649, white urban coffee table £150 Tesco Direct Romance Love Seat, £799 from Marks & Spencer, currently on offer online in certain fabrics from £454

54


CLEVER SEATS

We’re all trying to find ways to use every available inch of space in our rooms, and seating which fits into corners or can be extended with a chaise (footstool/seat) can be a brilliant solution. Sheldon Pistachio Corner sofa, £750, www.tesco.com/direct


COOL & CONTEMPORARY Sofas often make a statement by virtue of their size, but it's their design credentials that should draw the eye. Concorde leather corner group with chaise, £999, Harveys Furniture Store

Newman Sofa, Wallace Neutral retro print, from £819, Laura Ashley. Aged Union Jack cushion,£35.99, www.notonthehighstreet.com Rule Briannia cushion,£18.99, www.fromthewilde.com

Stella 2.5 seater sofa, available in a range of colours and fabris, from £940, www.sofa.com 56


BARGAIN NUMBERS

You’re never going to sit comfortably if you’ve bust the budget by shelling out more than you can afford on a sofa.Fortunately, you can sit back and relax because competition is keen and that means you can bag a well-designed piece at a comfortable price of under £600.

FIVE MINUTES WITH... ROBSON GREEN

Actor, presenter and globe-trotting fisherman Robson Green discusses about his new Channel 5 series Robson’s Extreme Fishing Challenge, his latest dramatic ventures, and his thoughts on Hollywood.

Can we expect another run after this? Yes, you’re watching season five and I’m just about to finish series six.

What can you reveal about the next series? How does your new series extreme fishing challenge differ from your previous angling shows? The format has changed ever so slightly, but it has a significant impact on the narrative. With all my fishing experience that I’ve gained from travelling around the globe for the last five years, when I did a reality check I’ve probably travelled to more places and caught more fish species than any other angler in the world, so I must have learned something. I thought,

‘Surely now I can take on the best in the world in a competition?’ So delusionally or not, I’m actually representing Great Britain. I’m travelling around the world, taking on five of the best anglers each nation has to offer.

What was the most memorable moment of filming the new series? It had to be Brazil, in the middle of the Amazon basin going after a creature known as the Dracula fish. It has fangs that can grow up to six inches, and I mean fangs. I don’t know what natural selection was thinking of when it conjured up this creature, but it really is a monster of the deep. I’d heard about it and I’d seen pictures of this particular creature, but we go where most anglers fear to go because it is kind of on the edge. We catch our target, but also it’s set against the most dramatic adventurous backdrop you could imagine. It really is the kind of place that time forgot, untouched. We always remind ourselves of what a privilege and honour it is to be in locations like that.

I’ve just come back from Mozambique, South Africa and Mauritius, and I’m about to leave for Iceland soon. In Mozambique we came across an electric catfish. Let me tell you, they can knock you off your feet! I’m talking about something that’s only one and a half feet in length; 350 volts, straight to your feet and lifting you off the deck.

when I go over there I’m invited. There’s a lot of talk about certain projects, but until I’ve got the ‘bacon butty’ in my hand, so to speak, we’ll see. I went to the Oscars which was fab. I’d never been before and talk about wall to wall charisma! It was definitely a case of spot the odd one out!

What’s your production company coastal working on next? We’re adapting a novel hopefully to be shot in Canada called Distant Echo. I take a back seat; I don’t appear in any of the dramas because Coastal has become self-sufficient and therefore I just take a creative role.

What else are you working on? I’m working on a wonderful series for Sky called Mount Pleasant. Sally Lindsay is terrific in this, with Daniel Ryan playing her husband. So me and David Bradley have just joined the team; David played my dad in Reckless, so it was a no-brainer when I was asked if I would join the cast. There’s also two other projects I’m working on with two other major channels, and Discovery are on board now with Extreme Fishing. So it’s this brand that is travelling the globe and they’re ringing me up saying: ‘Okay, where do you want to go next?’ Talk about lucky! They do say that the harder you work the luckier you get. I’m not a religious man, but somebody up there does like me.

Finally, if you could go back 20 years and offer yourself a piece of advice, what would it be? Never ever go against your instincts because they’re always truthful. Always speak from the heart, and when you’re having a good time, there’s always someone round the corner ready to ruin it!

Robson’s Extreme Fishing Challenge can be seen on Monday nights on Channel 5.

When you starred in being human last year, you looked like a hollywood action star. Would you ever like to appear in a die hard-style thriller? I don’t know. They’re not queuing up with those kinds of offers, but let’s see. I’ve got my green card which will allow me to work in America now, so maybe one day. When I go to America I have to make it as an actor because I’ll never make it as a waiter - every single person who wants to be in showbiz is waiting tables. But 69

BLUE SKY THINKING Some recipes involving Stilton to get you started...

With the ever first National Stilton Week just passed, the secretary of the Stilton Cheese Makers' Association tells us why this crumbly British favourite is not just for the Christmas cheese board and is the perfect addition to soups and salads. With its origins as far back as the early 18th century, Stilton has long been popular on the cheese board at dinner parties. But, as the industry celebrates its first ever National Stilton Week, experts want to encourage us to cook with it too. "Anything you can do with Cheddar, you can do with Stilton in terms of cooking," says Nigel

(SERVES 4)

White, secretary of the Stilton Cheese Makers' Association. "As it's always open textured and slightly soft, it melts fabulously and crumbles very easily. "You can just crumble it over salads, or use it in a sauce, soup or dip. You can also top a burger with it, or put it in a chicken breast wrapped in bacon or ham to get the flavours coming through. "When you mix it with other foods it gives them an oomph, a bit of extra flavour. "Even people who don't like Stilton on its own will often enjoy a Stilton and broccoli soup, for example, or a cream cheese and Stilton dip." Like Champagne and Parma ham, Stilton is a protected name and can only be produced in the counties

of Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Nottinghamshire.It is made with local, pasteurised milk, always produced in a cylindrical shape and never pressed, which gives it its open texture. The cheese is allowed to form its own crust and, in the case of the blue variety, a safe mould is added, which causes striking blue veins to radiate from its centre. Although the veins are one of the most distinctive features of the cheese, they are also one of the most divisive. White says: "People can be intimidated by the appearance and by the smell too, which is why we always recommend you double-wrap Stilton. "Only one household in three ever buys any blue cheese in a year, so it's

very much a niche part of the market. After all, what other food do we eat that's blue? "There's an education job to do in getting people to be a bit more adventurous." If you need more convincing, it's worth noting that Stilton freezes brilliantly. It will relax back to its original shape when you defrost it in the fridge overnight so there's no need to throw it away after a dinner party. White adds: "Although we'd never recommend that you eat the crust, if you're cooking the cheese it's fine to use the rind. "It will melt superbly and top chefs use it because it has more flavour than the cheese itself, so you never have to waste it."

RECIPE PORK & STILTON BURGERS INGREDIENTS 400g (14oz) lean pork mince 1 small red onion, finely chopped 1tbsp chopped fresh rosemary 1tbsp chopped fresh thyme 100g (4oz) Stilton cheese Freshly ground black pepper 4 burger buns 4 x 15g (1/2oz) Stilton cheese Mixed salad leaves

METHOD

COOK’S TIP:

For a great mini treat, form the burgers into meatballs and bake in the oven at 200°C/ fan oven 180°C for 20 minutes, then serve in warm pitta breads with salad and sweet chilli sauce.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the pork, red onion, rosemary, thyme, chilli powder (if using) and crumbled Stilton. Season with black pepper, then form into 4 burgers. Keep covered and chilled.When ready to cook, preheat the grill, barbecue or char-grill pan. Cook the burgers for 8-10 minutes per side, depending on their thickness. Split the burger buns and toast the cut sides, if you like. Top with salad leaves, then a burger. Finish each one off with a slice of Stilton and a drizzle of sweet chilli sauce, if you like.

RECIPES RECIPE STILTON, PEPPER & ASPARAGUS FLAN

(SERVES 6)

INGREDIENTS

METHOD

500g pack ready-made shortcrust pastry

Preheat the oven to 200°C/fan oven 180°C/Gas Mark 6. Roll out the pastry on a lightly floured surface, sprinkle with the poppy seeds, then press them into the pastry with the rolling pin. Use to line a 20 x 30cm (8 x 12 inch) oblong tart tin. Line with foil or greaseproof paper and baking beans and bake ‘blind’ (i.e. without a filling) for 15 minutes. Take the flan from the oven and remove the foil or paper and baking beans. Reduce the oven temperature to 180°C/fan oven 160°C/Gas Mark 4. Lightly cook the asparagus in boiling water for two to three minutes. Run cold water over it, then drain well. Tear the peppers into strips and arrange them in the pastry case with the asparagus and Stilton. Beat together the eggs and creme fraiche. Season with black pepper. Pour into the flan case, then bake for 30-35 minutes, until set. Serve warm or cold, garnished with basil.

1tbsp poppy seeds 200g (7oz) asparagus, trimmed and chopped into 5cm (2 inch) pieces 300g (10oz) roasted red peppers (from a jar, rinsed) 200g (7oz) Stilton cheese, crumbled into small pieces 3 medium eggs 300ml pot half fat creme fraiche

COOK’S TIP:

Freshly ground black pepper

Try not to handle the pastry too much - it should be kept as cool as possible to give a light, crisp finish. Make mini versions in bun trays to serve as canapes or snacks.

Basil leaves, to garnish

RECIPE PEAR, STILTON & POMEGRANATE SALAD INGREDIENTS

METHOD

2 heads chicory, broken into separate leaves

Put the chicory leaves into a salad bowl and add the watercress or salad leaves. Toss together. Toss the pear slices in the lemon juice, then add them to the salad bowl. Mix the olive oil with any remaining lemon juice and a pinch of black pepper. Break the Stilton into chunks and add them to the salad bowl. Sprinkle with the lemon dressing and the pomegranate seeds.

75g bag watercress or mixed salad leaves 2 ripe pears, peeled,cored & sliced 2tbsp lemon juice 2tsp olive oil 200g (7oz) Stilton cheese 50g (2oz) pomegranate seeds

74

COOK’S TIP: For canapes, fill chicory leaves with a few salad leaves, chopped pear, crumbled Stilton and pomegranate seeds, then sprinkle with a little dressing.

(SERVES 4)


RECIPE STILTON, CELERY & SPRING ONION PATE

(SERVES 6)

INGREDIENTS

METHOD

200g (7oz) Stilton cheese

Crumble the Stilton into a mixing bowl, then mash with a fork. Add the low fat soft cheese and yoghurt, combining them together to make a semi-smooth pate. Add the celery, spring onions and thyme or parsley. Season with a little black pepper, then serve with oatcakes, water biscuits or Melba toast.

200g (7oz) pack low fat soft cheese 2tbsp 0% fat Greek-style yoghurt 1 celery stick, finely chopped 2 spring onions, trimmed and finely chopped 2tsp fresh thyme leaves or chopped fresh parsley Freshly ground black pepper

RECIPE WARM STILTON & WATERCRESS MUFFINS INGREDIENTS

METHOD

250g (9oz) plain flour

Preheat the oven to 190°C, fan oven 170°C, Gas Mark 5. Put eight paper muffin cases into a muffin pan, or line them with squares of greaseproof paper. Sift the flour, salt and baking powder into a large mixing bowl. Stir in the crumbled Stilton. In a jug, beat together the egg, milk and oil. Pour the liquid mixture into the dry ingredients. Stir until just combined, adding the grated carrots and watercress at the last moment. You mustn’t beat the mixture or stir it too much. It should be quite lumpy, but there should be no traces of dry flour. Spoon the mixture into the muffin cases. Bake for 20-25 minutes until risen and golden. Cool until the muffins are barely warm.

1tbsp baking powder 125g (5oz) Stilton cheese finely crumbled 1 large egg 240ml (8fl oz) milk 90ml (3fl oz) sunflower oil 150g (6oz) carrots, finely grated 50g (2oz) watercress, roughly chopped

COOK’S TIP: This pate easily translates into a dip by thinning it down with a little milk, to serve with fresh vegetable crudites. Excellent for summer packed lunches, buffets and picnics!

(MAKES 8)

COOK’S TIP: Try not to handle the pastry too much - it should be kept as cool as possible to give a light, crisp finish. Make mini versions in bun trays to serve as canapes or snacks.

DIY EXPERT THIS WEEK: Get those jobs done with a little help from DIY guru Big Al. How to improve your kitchen and tips on quick and easy fix.

IS YOUR KITCHEN UP TO SCRATCH? It’s often said that the kitchen is the room most likely to persuade you to buy a property - or the room most likely to put you off, depending on what it’s like, so it goes without saying that if you’re considering putting your home on the market, it pays to make sure the kitchen is up to scratch. Even if you’re not selling, an attractive, well-organised and functional kitchen adds to the value of your home and makes it nicer to live in. Of course, the thing about new kitchens is that they cost money - lots of it. Gutting the room and starting from scratch is a great way to create your dream kitchen, but only if you have the cash and time and are prepared to put up with the disruption. If you want a quick fix, however, there are lots of inexpensive things you can do to make your kitchen work and look better. The obvious starting point is repainting the walls and ceiling, but changing the unit doors is also easy to do - B&Q has a good selection of doors. You could even fit (or get a carpenter to fit) a new worktop - try eBay for inexpensive wooden ones. Retiling the walls (or painting the existing tiles) and laying new flooring will make a big difference, too. If lack of worktop space is a problem, think about how you can make what you’ve got go further. Use microwave brackets to get your microwave off the worktop. Are there

any small appliances you hardly use that can be put (or given) away? Another solution to lack of workspace is to install an island unit - if there’s room. If there isn’t, maybe a slimline table or breakfast bar will give you more workspace and still allow you to move around the room easily? Billing your kitchen as a kitchen-diner when selling your home is a big plus. Hinged tables that fold flat against the wall when not in use are a great idea if space is tight - try the Bjursta or the Norberg, both £29 each, Ikea. Got nice glasses, crockery and pots and pans? Fit shelves to display them on - floating shelves are still fashionable. This gets them out of the cupboards, freeing up space, and you can make a nice display out of them. Alternatively, saucepans and utensils can be hung from wooden or metal hanging or wall rails to get them out of the way. If your kitchen has high ceilings and you’re happy to change the wall units, invest in extra tall ones. Failing that, stack attractive baskets or boxes on top of the existing wall units to make the most of the space. However, don’t store anything heavy up there. When you’re replacing a kitchen, it’s easy to incorporate clever design ideas for awkward and small spaces, but if you’re making the best of what you’ve got, it pays to think laterally, especially when selling your home.

PRODUCT OF THE WEEK:

BIG AL’S TOP TIP:

HEDGEHOG GUTTER BRUSH

Q

HOW DO I CLEAR A BLOCKED DOWNPIPE?

A

To clear a blocked downpipe, make a hole in the blockage with a wire coat hanger, and wiggle the coat hanger to loosen the blockage. Put a hosepipe (unless there is a hosepipe ban in your area) in the top of the downpipe and turn it on fully - the flow of water through the hole should hopefully dislodge the blockage.

The Hedgehog Gutter Brush is an innovative solution to keeping your gutters free of debris. The polypropylene brush on a steel-wire spine is pretty much indestructible and requires no maintenance.

MAKING AN IMPRESSION A new celebrity impressions show, Very Important People, airs Channel 4 on Friday nights.


Morgana Robinson and Terry Mynott reveal how they perfect their techniques for impersonating such a broad range of stars, from Russell Brand to Amy Childs, who they like doing best and what Fearne Cotton thinks of Robinson's impersonation of her. When she's not plastered in prosthetics, Morgana Robinson will be recognisable to comedy fans from sketch series The Morgana Show. But the 29-year-old is now preparing to reach a whole new audience with Very Important People, an impressions round-up which lampoons some of our best known stars. "I think The Morgana Show was more of a brunette show. This is a blonde show," she declares in her natural voice, which isn't dissimilar to Fearne Cotton's - one of Robinson's subjects in the show. While her 2010 outing featured a mixture of impressions and original characters, such as wannabe teenage TV presenter Gilbert, this one is all about current celebrities. "The Morgana Show was a bit weird and wacky. It wasn't full of jokes and it wasn't very commercial," she says.

"This one is massively accessible because it's based on celebrity culture, for people who just want to chill out for half an hour and have a bit of a laugh." With the help of a very flexible face, a keen talent for mimicry, and several hours in make-up, she takes on dozens of personalities, alongside co-star Terry Mynott. Robinson's repertoire includes singer-of-the-moment Adele, who is all punchy hand gestures and rapid talking, EastEnder-turned-reality TV star Natalie Cassidy, who chirpily regales viewers with details of her domestic life while wearing a dressing gown, and Helena Bonham Carter. Male celebrities don't escape - she performs convincing spoofs of number of famous men, including sharp-tongued Scotsman Frankie Boyle and comic Russell Brand, but admits the transformation is a challenge. "All men are hard. I can't even walk like them, because my skeleton is put together differently.

The physical side of it can be really draining." Prosthetics play a big part, but Robinson was pleased that the make-up department took a less-is-more approach when turning her into self-styled hardman Danny Dyer, as it allowed her to use more of her own face to capture his expressions. "Prosthetics offer a fine line between helping and hindering. It's best to strip back as much as you possibly can," she says. "I remember going on about getting a face for Danny Dyer and now I'm really happy I've only got a forehead." Robinson, an art college graduate with a sculpture degree, has the kind of backstory that will give hope to struggling actors everywhere. While working as a receptionist at a smart restaurant, she got to know one of the regulars - showbiz agent John Noel - and handed him her home-made DVD. "It was basically a camcorder of me sitting on a sofa with joke teeth and hats. Obviously anyone in their right mind wouldn't take on somebody like that, but John Noel said, 'I'm signing you' and that was it." Fast forward a few years and Robinson's now on course to join the handful of female impressionists who have become household names. She has her own views on why men outnumber women on the comedy scene. "It's not high on women's priorities to be funny, and they're not necessarily up for making themselves really ugly," she says. "It's a very masculine thing - you've got to strap your tits down and get on with it. There's nothing glamorous about it. "But give it another 100 years and everyone will be doing it. We're still making our way." As well as catapulting Robinson into the limelight, Very Important People gives equal airtime to co-star Mynott, who was signed after Noel spotted him on YouTube. While Mynott is in awe of Robinson's "Jim Carrey-style rubber face", she refers to him as the "voice machine". His impressions on the show include stargazer Brian Cox, Jonathan Ross, David Attenborough, I'm A Celebrity winner Joe Swash, and US president Barack Obama. "I enjoyed doing Obama because there was such a lot of hard work behind it, but at the same time, it was a nightmare learning it," he says. The two impressionists had different approaches to mastering their characters. For Mynott, it was a case of listening and practising

very short sections of speech, while Robinson would learn a clip as if it were a song and then change the words. With hours of solitary preparation and time spent filming monologues, the pair relished the days they got to work together. "Learning the voices is the most mental process," says Mynott. "You're alone for so long and and then you're meeting up and pulling out and each other's hair. We're very much together on it all. You can't not be." Although the programme pokes fun at celebrity, he insists none of it is nasty. "Look at Jonathan Ross," he says. "I like Jonathan Ross, and I didn't want to offend him. "But I don't think we did, really, we were just really silly." Whether or not the programme offends remains to be seen as most of the impressions are yet to be unveiled to the public. But they already have at least one thumbs-up from Fearne Cotton, whose impersonation was introduced in The Morgana Show and has made the cut in the new series. "Fearne was a brilliant sport," says Robinson. "She loved it, bless her.

VIP HIGHLIGHTS David Attenborough and Frankie Boyle: The silky-voiced nature expert examines the behaviour of the controversial comic in Stand Up Planet. Danny Dyer: The self-styled TV hardman gets more than he bargained for when he investigates Britain's Hardest Commute. Joe Swash and Stacey Solomon: The I'm A Celebrity winners pair up as stars of a new West End adaptation of Facebook film, The Social Network. Gordon Ramsay: The foul-mouthed celebrity chef fronts a new anti-bullying campaign. Amy Childs: A topical segment, filmed during the week of broadcast, will see Robinson as the breathy Essex girl fronting a celebrity news programme.

BMMVTOPX

Last week I took my wife to Paris to celebrate her 60th birthday. Our first organised trip was the obligatory sortie up the Seine, supposedly enhanced by a five language commentary on places of interest. Following the two nautical miles that it took for my wife and I to enact our routine and entirely predictable heated exchanges about which side was Port and starboard we settled down at the blunt end to focus properly on introducing the industrial volumes of engine fumes into our respiratory systems. With a sense of rising indignation I realised that us English speakers on board were being roundly prejudiced when as we drew level with each noteworthy landmark the pre-recorded commentary was in the following order: French, German, Japanese, probably Spanish and then disgracefully relegated to fifth the nation that until quite recently had dominion of half of the known world. Shamefully of course by the time we had identified our mother tongue the boat had drawn level with the next allegedly memorable edifice leaving all of us Brits, and the odd colonial, peering forlornly through the diesel haze at a diminished spec and a lost opportunity to nod sagely. One evening we witnessed a show trumpeted as â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Latin Paradisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; which was a typical foreign exercise in ascertaining how much jiggling naked pulchritude the stage floorboards would support. It was therefore all the more comforting when the predominantly British audience, who up until then had squirmed in a turmoil of mute moral outrage, had risen as one to acclaim a properly attired gentleman perched on a unicycle who was flicking tea cups and saucers on to his head courtesy of a stick in his mouth. We were then transported into delirium when he proceeded to launch a teapot skywards, courtesy of his willing stick, landing it adroitly on top of his head and then incline his head forward to deliver tea into a waiting teacup. On our first morning, and coursing with high expectation, we stopped at a charming cafĂŠ located in a Parisian park. In my world as I advanced towards the counter I imagined an impressive array of gleaming chrome clad equipment in a seamless stretch along the back wall all twiddly knobs and escaping hisses with smiling flamboyant baristas whistling a continental ditty as they whisked up a coffee to die for. Back in Geoffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s world I was approached by a dour faced journeyman swathed in an apron adorned with some quite disturbing soiling who emitted an incomprehensible guttural noise which I took to be the cue for my order. With not a flake of chrome in sight he whisked out a Tupperware container (giving him his due it was done with no little flair) and extracted two Nescafe sachets. These would be of the exact type I purchase in Tesco every week, for balance these sachets are readily available in other grocery outlets. His next carefully choreographed move involved savaging the sachets until at least half of the granules arrived at their intended destination followed by a furious assault with kettle in one hand and jabbing swivelling plastic spoon in the other. In fairness what this performance lacked in grace and technical expertise was compensated for by his wholehearted approach plus the surprisingly creamy consistency of the beverage and swept along by the prevalent mood of gaiety I additionally purchased two four finger Kit Kats (the doughnuts looked well past their peak).

BeoPlay V1: From ÂŁ1.995


Burning ambition In the past, heat output wasn’t important to most fireplace purchasers. They would use their central heating to warm the house and the fire was primarily to look pretty. Then in 2008, came the financial meltdown which, coupled with the ever increasing price of gas, has forced customers to consider living room fires which actually heat the home. This has lead to a resurgence in wood fire sales that would have been unimaginable a few years ago. As a result, fire designers and engineers are developing creative and exciting ways to offer a low carbon form of sustainable heat which can be a major architectural feature within the home. Open plan family living areas are becoming popular with a real fire at the heart of the design. Several of the new glass fronted cassette stoves are available with ducted hot air systems and with outputs big enough to heat the whole home can be connected to bedrooms, hallways and other living areas. New generations of boiler stoves are being developed by a number of manufacturers offering the possibility of linking the output of the fires to the existing heating and hot water system. This approach, offers great flexibility, enabling the traditional heating system to maintain comfort levels whilst the house is unoccupied but the real fire system can take over on those cold winter nights, saving significant amounts of fossil fuels. Somehow, there is nothing like a real fire on a cold winters evening. Taking the process one step further, “Fondis” the French manufacturer has developed a way of connecting the ducted air system to an air source heat pump which can either provide warm air when the fire is not lit or cool air throughout the summer months. Combination heating and hot water systems can provide ways of significantly reducing your

energy bills and helping to reduce your carbon footprint. Traditionally, heating systems were powered by an oil or gas boiler, designed to cope with the total heating load in the worst of weathers. However, for probably 340 days of the year, weather conditions are not that extreme , in fact the average UK temperature throughout the year is 7 degrees centigrade. Therefore although a property might require 30 kilowatts of heat on the coldest days when the house is fully occupied, most of the time a heating output of 12-15 kilowatts would be more than adequate. By using a stepped approach, combining low carbon emission heating appliances of differing outputs provide the total heating load when required, but will use far less energy in doing so and are able to run at much lower levels in times of reduced demand. The Government is looking to encourage the use of technologies such as air and ground source heat pumps, solar thermal panels and biomass boilers. Installation costs of such low carbon appliances generally attract only 5% VAT. They will also be introducing the Renewable Heat Incentive which will give a cash rebate for every kilowatt of heat produced by these appliances for the next 18 to 20 years. Exact details of the domestic arrangements have yet to be released but the scheme will be the first of it’s kind in the world. Coupled with “The Green Deal”, also to be released there are now many low energy ways of heating your home at a much reduced cost.

Aruba Bournemouth Beach

Set in the heart of Sandbanks, Jazz Café enjoys spectacular views of Dorset’s premier Blue Flag beach. This relaxing destination, loved by locals and highly recommended by holidaymakers, is where you can enjoy appetising home cooked food and drink all year round. Jazzy’s as it’s affectionately referred to, offer a wholesome experience and friendly attentive service, with a variety of freshly cooked meals prepared by their chefs and regular entertainment from their house band, with the Jazz Café Sunday lunch jazz sessions have become a local tradition. Jazzy’s also run a Friday Nite Jazz Series where good food and fine wine compliment the Ray D’Inverno/Andy Urquhart Quartet and other star guests from the UK jazz scene. Entry is by ticket only from £15, or £34 with 2 courses, or £39 with 3 courses. These sessions are in big demand so early booking (on 01202 708346) is strongly advised.

Owner Aktar and his team will go out of their way to ensure your meal at Indi's is a truly enjoyable experience, while the team of highly experienced chefs, using only the freshest ingredients will certainly leave you wanting more.

BESPOKE YOUR MAKE-UP BAG Discover the magic make-up that does all the hard work for you. We look at colour adjusting cosmetics. It's the elusive action in make-up application where so many of us try and fail on a daily basis - getting your foundation shade spot-on. Making the wrong choice is fraught with beauty perils - first there's the dreaded tell-tale line on the neck, or obvious 'mask' of ill-matched colour. The problem isn't confined to the skin, either - certain lipstick colours might make you look like death warmed up and a poorly-chosen blusher could give you anything but a rosy glow. Thankfully, there are clever cosmetics that practically mind-read your skin tone for you. They work by adapting to the wearer's natural chemistry and adjust accordingly, providing the perfect hue for their colouring. Sound too good to be true? Read on and revolutionise your make-up routine.

BESPOKE YOUR BLUSH

LOVE YOUR LIPS

Embarrassing moments aside, if there's one place that gives off heat it's your cheeks, which is where colour-adjust blushers really come into their own. "Most colour-adjust blushers work with the temperature of the skin, changing colour to accentuate your natural flush," says Kingston. "With this in mind, try the cream textures and apply to the apples of the cheeks, blending with a clean finger." As they're usually heat-sensitive, as soon as the pigments warm up they change colour.

If you haven't worked out whether you're more of a classic red or fun fuchsia kinda girl, let a colour-adaptive lip make the decision for you. "For natural sexy, bittenlooking lips, have fun with some of the stains on the market," Kingston suggests. "They change colour with your mood (apparently) and can look a different colour on different days, depending on the temperature of your skin."For a more intense look, opt for a lipstick or stain, like DuWop's Private collection (£19 each) - colour-changing lipsticks with a rich pigment that change within five minutes to leave behind the ultimate perfect shade. Keep things fresh with a dewy gloss like JK by Jemma Kidd Lip ID Colour Adapt Gloss (£10), or L'Oréal Paris Studio Secrets Universal Lip Glow (£8.49) - a made-tomeasure balm that adapts uniquely to the heat and moisture of your lips.

Smashbox's O-Glow (£16.50), is the innovative pretty pink flush to experiment with. Spot the glow as you watch the pink-hued gel react with your skin chemistry and turn into the shade you blush naturally. 142


TRIED & TESTED Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser, from £14.25 ‘You only need a small amount of this cleanser to work some magic. After patting my face dry, my skin felt soft, smooth and clean - like my pores had been flushed out of all dirt.’

5/5 The Sanctuary Polishing Hot Cloth Cleanser, £10.20 ‘I loved the home pampering element of combining the cloth and cleanser action. The solution felt rich and immediately after removal my skin looked and felt like it was glowing.’

SKIN TONE MASTERCLASS Investing in colour adjusting products isn't the only way to discover your perfect match with cosmetics. The insider secret is to first work out whether you have a cool or warm skin tone - as this will determine which shades and colours suit you best. "As a general rule of thumb, if you have porcelain or paler skin, you will probably have a pink skin tone and will suit colours with a cool base," explains make-up artist Jemma Kidd.

"If your skin is fair to olive, you will probably have more of a yellow skin tone and will suit warmer-based shades." But if you feel that you're a mix of both pink and yellow (for example, pink cheeks but yellow chin and forehead) and considered to be neutral, you're lucky enough to be able to wear both cool and warm-based shades. If you have deep-coloured skin, you can either be red or blue in tone.

ACE YOUR FACE

COLOUR ME BEAUTIFUL

Everyone’s skin tone is different, so having a foundation that adjusts to match your complexion is the hassle-free way to finding your perfect shade and achieving a flawless finish. If you’re choosing a colour-adapt foundation, you still need to look for your closest possible match - it’s not a oneshade-fits-all solution. Lancome’s Color Ideal Precise Match SkinPerfecting Makeup SPF15 (£29), offers six shades while New CID’s i-Perfection Colour Adjust Foundation (£26), has eight. Kingston advises: “You should decide on a shade that is closest to your neck colour, to avoid a nasty tide mark. “Apply the colour to your jaw line and blend well. Then wait at least 60 second for the foundation to change colour - it should all but disappear.”

Just like fragrance that sits and smells differently on every individual, a lip colour that looks amazing on your friend might be anything but flattering on you.

4/5 NSPA Beauty Rituals Hot Cloth Polish, £7 (Asda) ‘Cleanser smells divine and smoothes onto the skin easily. When massaged off using the muslin cloth provided, my skin felt fresh and only slightly sticky.’

Colour-adaptive make-up works like a tailormade suit, being the perfect individual fit. Rupert Kingston, creative director at New CID cosmetics, explains: "Colour-adjust make-up usually works with PH-sensitive pigments. "Although all skin is slightly acidic there is a slight PH variation between each individual, which is why there's a different result when worn on different skins." Test for a positive reaction on your face, cheeks, lips or all three.

MOTORING NEWS

REVERSE DAMAGE

The latest news on all things motoring

VAUXHALL SHOWS FASTEST GROWTH Vauxhall showed the biggest leap in year-onyear retail sales last month, with 3701 more cars sold than in March 2011, according to analysis just released by the Society of Manufacturers and Traders. The figures lift Vauxhall’s retail share by 1.46 percentage points and reveal its growing appeal to private buyers, with cars like the recently launched Astra GTC dominating its class in the retail sector with 1,773 sales in March. But March wasn’t a flash in the pan for Vauxhall’s retail performance. In the first quarter of 2012, the company also made the biggest increase in year-on-year retail sales by volume, with 3,211 more cars being purchased versus the same period in 2011. “The tide is turning for Vauxhall,”

said Duncan Aldred, the company’s Chairman and Managing Director. “We’re no longer perceived by private buyers as a company that concentrates on fleet cars alone, and our 2012 retail figures are proof of this. We intend to capitalise on this success through the year, with upcoming cars like the Mokka SUV and Junior reinforcing our retail position still further.” In addition to the Astra GTC, Vauxhall has already launched two new models in the last three months - the Zafira Tourer and groundbreaking Ampera – both of which are incremental to the company’s existing car ranges. The Ampera E-REV (Extended-Range Electric Vehicle) was voted European Car of the Year 2012 last month and, says Vauxhall, is "set to revolutionise public perception towards electric cars."

Driver training specialist IAM Drive & Survive is offering tips on commuting to work from its head of training, Simon Elstow, he says: "The biggest problem with commuting is that everyone travels at the same time. People get frustrated and tired and will be inclined to behave unpredictably – be wary and anticipate the actions of road users around you. Rush hour is when there are the most vulnerable road users about – walking to school, or cycling to work. Give children and cyclists plenty of room. Familiar routes are the ones we get most careless about – keep your attention on the road. Listen out for traffic updates on the radio in case your route is affected, and learn an alternative route or two in case of an accident or road closure. Check the weather before you travel; heavy rain usually slows traffic up, so leave a few minutes earlier. Using your car to commute to work means you are especially reliant on it working. Regularly check your tyre pressures and condition, washer fluid, lights and oil. " Elstow adds: “Always leave enough time to get to work so you’re not rushing unnecessarily. Traffic is bad every day – being late on those grounds isn’t an excuse. If you do get held up in traffic on the way to work, don’t rush. Pull over if you need to let anybody know, but remember it’s better to arrive late than never.”

MG6 ECONOMY GROUP

VOLKSWAGEN UP! WORLD CAR OF THE YEAR

146

Volkswagen's new Up!city car has been voted World Car Of The Year, 2012. With 66 of the top automotive journalists from around the globe judging, the up! surpassed a total of 33 other nominees. Judging was based on merit, value, safety, environmental impact, significance, and emotional appeal. ‘This award shows once again that in the up! our designers and engineers have created a vehicle that has been thought through in minute detail. A vehicle that sets standards in its class for efficient use of space, safety, motoring fun and environmental compatibility,’ said Prof. Dr. Martin Winterkorn, Chairman of the Board of Management of Volkswagen. The new Volkswagen city car has won numerous accolades since its launch in late 2011, winning special praise for its combination of small footprint, big interior space and innovative City Emergency Braking system. The World Car jurors hail from 25 countries, and are appointed by the World Car Steering Committee on the basis of their expertise, experience, credibility, and influence. Each juror drives and evaluates new vehicles on a regular basis as part of their ongoing, full-time professional work.

Improved production methods have paid dividends for customers of the award-winning MG6 who will now get better fuel economy, reduced CO2 emissions and pay lower road tax. And as an added bonus the on-the-road price of all MG6 GT and MG6 Magnette models have been reduced thanks to the new systems. Many of the production advances have been made at MG Motor UK’s factory in Birmingham where final assembly and quality sign-off of the MG6 range is carried out. The latest 2012 model year cars see CO2 figures drop from 184g/km to 174g/km which reduces the Vehicle Excise Duty by one band. This saves £50 on the first year’s road tax and £20 a year after that. Fuel economy improves with the urban cycle increasing from 26.1mpg to 27.7mpg (+1.6mpg). The extra urban cycle increases from 45.2mpg to 48.7mpg (+3.5mpg) while the combined figure increases from 35.6mpg to 37.7mpg (+2.1mpg). The improved VED figures mean that the onthe road prices for all MG6 models are reduced by £40. Prices now start from £15,455 for an MG6 GT fastback in S model trim. Guy Jones, Sales and Marketing Director at MG Motor UK said: “This is yet more good news from MG. It comes on top of a fantastic debut by Jason Plato and Andy Neate in racing versions of the MG6 at the Brands Hatch opening races of the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship."

WHITE HOT NUMBERS Walk down the aisle in style. We reveal how to be a fashion-forward bride without blowing the budget. You might associate falling in love and finding 'the one' with your husband-to-be, but the very same principles apply to your wedding dress. Just as you need to kiss a few frogs in the dating world, the search for your dream frock can be a real journey. You're looking for the right shape, the right shade and exactly the right amount of sparkles, feathers or flounce. If in doubt, turn to the catwalks for inspiration. Bridal designers are seasons ahead of the aisle game so you can tap into the fashion mood for your upcoming nuptials. Check out the trends and find a wedding ensemble you'll be smitten with.

Fabrics to fall for Satin, silk, tulle, taffeta - the bridal options are endless but one fabric is sending everyone wild. "For this season, it's lace, lace and more lace," explains Susi Rogol, editor of trade magazine Bridal Buyer. Not only as full-on gowns a la Duchess of Cambridge last April, but as accents too. "Lace is being used in little sculpted shrugs to

give a hint of cover-up through to strapless gowns and as detachable straps to complete top layers," says Rogol. Meanwhile edgier brides are loving laser-cut fabrics to create surface texture and 3D effects, also achieved with swirls of ribbons or fabric forming an entire skirt of flowers or petals.

Briding your time If you're looking ahead to a wedding next year, look back in time for inspiration. 2013 will be a vintage year, according to Rogol. "Vintage is the direction that every influential designer is taking, harking back to the Thirties and Fifties in particular. "So, slinky body-clinging dresses in slippery satins with clever fabric manipulation to form shape and accentuate curve on one hand, boat necklines and ballerina lengths on the other." Think Audrey Hepburn for inspiration, with Fifties hallmark details like nipped-in waists, bell skirts and crisp silhouettes.

Sweet on Silhoutte Use your body as a guide to choosing a shape that will flatter as you saunter down the aisle. There are two major silhouettes this season: curve-enhancing fishtails or retro ballgown styles.Samantha Neville,

founder of Mamfii Bridal, says: "Fishtail shapes accentuate the classic hourglass figure and look fabulous in full lace, or very simply made in the finest silk duchess where the beauty of the gown is all in the fabric and cut.

"Ballgowns are cut with a slightly lower waist, ensuring a flattering fit for all figures. Damask fabrics are making a comeback in classic shapes and are a beautiful choice for the fashion-forward bride, as are softer fabrics such as tulle and chiffon but cut into a fuller shape." Heart the high street For brides who are short on time or cash flow, buying off-the-peg is the obvious option and, thankfully, the trusty high street is going from strength to strength. "It's obviously a completely different experience to buy your wedding gown from the high street to experiencing the service of a boutique," Neville warns."But stores such as Coast and Monsoon have some lovely styles that are both stylish and cost-effective."


BRIDE ON A BUDGET Don't begin married life in debt so you can wear a fairytale designer gown for less than 24 hours. Elizabeth Catherine Myers, author of new book Pocket Wedding Planner, has these costcutting bridal shopping tips: • Wait for the sales in wedding dress shops to try and pick up a bargain. • Check the ads in your local paper for a second-hand dress. • Check auction websites like eBay to look for a second-hand dress. (But take care as the photo provided on the site and the final product may look very different). Check the item description, read the feedback comments about the seller and ask any questions you have before bidding. • Research the types of fabric that suit the style of dress you like. The type of fabric you choose could have a big impact on the overall price of your dress. • Carefully consider the style of dress you would like. If you choose a style that requires a lot of fabric, for example a dress with a long train or a full skirt, the price will increase. • Consider simple designs without embroidery. Machine work instead of hand beading can greatly reduce costs. A simple dress with simple accessories can look very stylish. • Asking a local dressmaker to copy a style of dress in a cutting-edge magazine could help save hundreds (and even thousands) of pounds. • Consider selling your dress after the wedding to recover some of the cost.

Review SUMMER BAY

VW Camper Vans

comfortable, the seats turn into double beds and the central heating system kept us very warm.

I love weekends away. Normally it’s a nice hotel in London with all the creature comforts or a spa break, however this weekend we were given a 1978 VW Camper van courtesy of Summer Bays Classic VW Camper Hire based In Dorset. They can deliver the camper to your home so your holiday can start the moment you turn the key and with prices starting from £62.50 per day to hire, it’s a cheap and exciting way to spend your weekend. Whether you are a thrill seeking adventurer or need to take a ride in the slow lane, to do your own thing, in your own time, then this is definitely the holiday for you. With the camper’s fridge stocked with beer and food we set off from Bournemouth to our first stop which was around an hours drive away in a forest near Chard in Somerset, I found the camper was great fun to drive with its huge steering wheel that you end up using as an arm rest, it also had a great sound system so with our ipods docked we cruised to Chard for our first night under the stars. We arrived at our campsite which is in the middle of a forest, and making our way through the trees we found the perfect spot,

the campsite we chose encouraged you to have campfires and supplied us with a fire pit and fire wood, our camper had a gas hob with 2 rings so in no time we were enjoying dinner and a few beers sat around the campfire in the middle of the forest under the stars listening to the Doors - brilliant! Our first night in the van was extremely comfortable, the seats turn into a double bed and the central heating system kept us very warm, with us only waking up to the occasional hoot hoot from an owl. The next morning we whipped up a nice full english breakfast before the next leg of our journey to Bude in Cornwall. Again the drive to Bude was a pleasure only taking a few hours, the sun was shining and the roads were clear. Our campsite was on top of a huge cliff with views over the atlantic and the sounds of the massive waves crashing onto the beach below we knew we had picked the right place to go. We went for a great walk along the cliff path and down into Bude for some well earned lunch. The great thing about the VW Camper is that you can just pull up somewhere put

the handbrake on, plug it into the electric and that’s it, you’re ready to go. There is no messing around with putting up tents and all that nonsense, you get to enjoy the best bits of camping with all the mod coms like, heating, sink, fridge, cooker, lights and comfy bed. It’s not something I thought I would ever do, but it was a totally amazing weekend, that we got to tailor make to our own preference, something you can’t do so much with a hotel break. You get a great sense of adventure in a camper van, you can go where you want, when you want, the camper even sleeps six people so it’s great for a family break or just you and your partner and Summer Bays camper hire are the cheapest in the south. So why don’t you try something different this summer, you will love it. To book call 07810 881875 or visit www.summerbays.co.uk

A CHAT WITH THE HEAD IAIN ROBERTSON BUCKHOLME TOWERS BTS SAILING ACADEMY LAUNCHES !

The start of the new term has seen great excitement over the launch of the Buckholme Towers Sailing Academy. Parkstone Yacht Club provides the perfect venue for the ‘intense’ twenty week course - they lay on the facilities, including boats, and we provide thirteen enthusiastic and very excited 6 to 10 year olds. Buckholme Towers is perfectly placed to exploit the wonderful natural facilities we have on our doorstep. I was fortunate enough to have learned to sail when I was very young (albeit on ‘ponds’ around the Midlands!) and I am keen that as many of our children as possible are provided with the same opportunities – and what better place to enjoy it than the magnificent Poole harbour?!

The course will be overseen by both the International Optimist Class Association and the Royal Yachting Association and by the end our pupils will be able to sail a course on their own, safely and competently. They will then be encouraged to buy boats and join a club, as we are hoping that sailing will become their lifelong passion. I’ll keep you posted on their progress! TO CLOSE, YOUR 11+ MATHS TEASER: The ratio of boys to girls in a class is 6:7. There are 36 boys, how many girls are there? And the solution to our last teaser: The price of butter is increased from £1.29 to £1.34 per 500g. How much extra is paid for 6kg? Answers: 60p

HEALTH & FITNESS

Spencer Cuckney www.bournemouthfitbodybootcamp.com

IS SUGAR POISONOUS? Although it tastes good and exists in one form or other in just about every processed food on the planet it is undoubtedly the number one cause for ‘Metabolic Syndrome’ which consists of obesity, cancer, diabetes, heart disease et al! Whether it’s on the table in its purest form in a bowl, or in the shape of glucosefructose syrup in processed and packaged foods the end result is the same - sugar is a key contributor to many of our diet-related diseases and conditions, including obesity, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure and cancer, according to Dr. Robert Lustig, professor of clinical pediatrics at the University of California, San Francisco. Although over the past thirty years our intake of conventional pure white sugar has declined, secretly it has been added to just every processed food on the planet in the form of glucose-fructose syrup, food companies add it to bread, cereals, tinned products and just about everything else. It is truly shocking to find some of the products you would never think had sugar in, actually have a great deal. For instance, Vitamin Water a product you would imagine would be super healthy judging by its name, contains around 8 teaspoons of sugar!

It is commonly believed that around 20% of all diet food has glucose-fructose syrup in it which is toxic, if something is low fat or diet that usually means that the natural ingredients have been removed and replaced with this toxic form of sugar and sweetener, even if it has zero calories it’s not only extremely bad for you, but it will also confuse the brain by giving it a sweet signal, which has now been proved to send the brain on a hunt for sugary foods, so it’s a double whammy - you will make yourself ill and consume more bad foods with no nutritional goodness. The other problem with sugar is that if you want to be lean, by consuming diet and processed foods you’re going to have problems, as the number one cause of getting fat (and getting ill) is having too much sugar in your system, this causes the master hormone Insulin to spike at high levels and consequently will store the excess sugar in your system as body fat. The only way to be disease free and lean is to eliminate sugar from your diet, at the end of the day we have evolved over 2.5 million years to be fat burners - this is how we are made, but over the past few hundred years society has turned us into sugar burners hence ‘Metabolic Syndrome’ Your diet needs to consist of a lot of good quality protein, a lot of high fibre carbs basically dark green leafy vegetables and equal amounts of good fats such as avocado, fresh water fish, flax seeds and olive oil. Add to this, minimal amounts of nuts, seeds and fruit. You should to avoid potatoes, pasta, bread, rice etc, however if you are taking part in high levels of aerobic activity such as triathlon and marathon training then the best carbs are sweet potato and wild rice. At the end of the day to be healthy and lean, avoid sugar like the plague and remember, if it has a food label on it don’t eat it, or at least study it very carefully before you do!

BOOTCAMP SUCCESS STORY TIM CLARK A F T ER

18 WEEKS

BEFORE

AFTER

Boot Camp works, but don’t just take my word for it, here’s the proof… Tim joined Bootcamp in September 2011. “I had felt for sometime that I wasn’t being active enough and had started to dread having my photo taken! I was a member of a local gym but wasn’t utilising it to its full potential to say the least! Bootcamp kept coming up on Facebook so I thought I’d give it a try” said Tim. “In the last 6 months I’ve lost a total of 3 stone, I’ve achieved this by following Spencer’s advice on nutrition and cutting back on my alcohol intake. Apparently 1 pint of lager is the equivalent of eating a doughnut so some weeks I was drinking the equivalent of 20 to 25 doughnuts! For me Bootcamp isn’t just about the fitness and all the health benefits it gives you, it’s just as much about the great people that I work out with during the week. I’ve made a lot of new friends and totally transformed my lifestyle. At 36, I’m now the fittest I’ve ever been in my life, I go to Bootcamp 4 times a week and have also starting running some evenings. I have just entered a half marathon for October and I hope to do the London Marathon too, ideally before I’m 40. A few years ago people would have laughed at me if I’d told them that. It’s worked for me more than I could have ever imagined and If I can do it anyone can!”

GO ON A DATE WITH TIM! Tim’s gone from flabby to fit and is looking for a woman to complete his transformed life! If you like the look of Tim and fancy a date, email a brief introduction, contact details and a photo to datetim@housemag.co.uk and we’ll pass on your details.
