BOURNECOAST MD MAKES HISTORY

FREE DISCOUNT CARD

THE SUCCESS of the approval of the Coastal District Business Improvement District (BID) sees the Managing Director of Bournecoast also making history. Bournemouth has claimed its place in the history book on the development of BIDs in Britain, on two counts: Bournemouth is the first town to develop simultaneous BIDS with both being voted through at the same time. Also, the Coastal Districts BID, of which Des Simmons the MD of Bournecoast is Chairman of the Steering Group, has the largest continuous geographical area of any BID in the UK. It runs for seven glorious miles from Westbourne through the West Cliff, East Cliff and Boscombe to Southbourne and Hengistbury Head. Des said, " We're delighted that after all the input we've had during the development phase from hundreds of local businesses, the BIDs have been voted through by the very firms that will be core-funding them over the next five years, including our family business of Bournecoast. In fact, with the two offices we have within the Coastal

Bournemouth based “Foodie “ website www. yourmealticket.co.uk is launching a new Discount Card, Free to members of the public. Available through the website the YMT Discount Card offers discounts and deals at hundreds of local restaurants, pubs, bistros featured on the website and in addition now includes scores of local Food Shops, number are growing daily! Butchers, Bakers, Delis , Take-aways, and many other specialist food outlets can list their business completely Free. The

Districts BID area, we will be paying twice! However, it is apparent that it has brought together a wide cross-section of businesses within the trading districts along Bournemouth's fabulous seven mile coastline" Tony Brown is the Chairman of the Town Centre BID and CEO of Beales. He said, "The fact that we have been able to develop these two BIDs in parallel and bring them to fruition simultaneously is a wonderful reflection on the co-operation and support we have had throughout this process " Over the next five years, the two BIDs will be investing £7million in the local economy. Core funding comes from the 585 eligible businesses in the Town Centre BID and 780 eligible businesses in the Coastal District BID. In addition, the Steering Groups anticipate they will be able to lever an additional 30% through voluntary contributions, sponsorship and matched funding for specific projects. Many local firms had already agreed to make voluntary contributions to the new BIDs, even before this formal approval was announced. The Coastal Districts BID will focus on

attracting visitors to the town for longer and to see more by encouraging them to visit more of the coastal strip, particularly outside the main summer season. Des added: “This vote for both the BIDs is great news for Bournemouth and indicates our business community’s belief in the resort and its commitment to investing its own resources in building on the town’s successes for years to come.” Bournecoast have been responsible for attracting many visitors to the area over the past 50 years and pride themselves in providing quality holiday lets to visitors in the area be that for families or couples. As a result of their knowledge of the markets, they are also able to supply suitable Buy-toLet properties to landlords in the Christchurch, Bournemouth and Poole area and are still family run to this day. For more information on services available through Bournecoast, including investment properties to rent or buy, or the buy-tolet market in general, please visit www.bournecoast. co.uk or telephone 01202 437888.

NATIONAL OPEN HOUSE WEEKEND

6

Following the success of previous campaigns, leading local agents Palmer Snell are planning to take part in what is expected to be the UK’s largest ever Open House Weekend. Taking place on the 12th and 13th May, the sellers of properties marketed by Palmer Snell will join thousands of sellers across the UK and open their doors to prospective buyers. Palmer Snell also took part in an identical event last May, with 17,000 sellers taking part nationally, attracting a whopping 31,000 viewings over the weekend, which resulted in 2,000 successful sales. The advantage of the National Open House Weekend is that it is time-saving and

more convenient for all parties involved. The timing allows sellers and buyers to organise multiple viewings over the Saturday and Sunday, rather than trying to cram viewings into their busy weekday lifestyles. To support the national event, property and mortgage experts will be available to offer specialist advice for all local buyers, sellers, investors and homeowners. Tony Whitfield, Regional Director comments “Our sellers are really excited to be taking part in the Open House Weekend as it’s been a huge success in previous years and it’s widely recognised as a great opportunity to match sellers and prospective buyers. “We’re anticipating

a significant amount of interest in the properties we currently have for sale, especially in the Southern area where we’ve seen a high demand from buyers. “So whether you’re a seller or buyer hoping to take part in the National Open House Weekend, or would just like some advice about purchasing or selling property, contact your local branch and we’ll be happy to help.” Those interested in viewing a property can call your local branch to obtain a unique password to use for viewings. All properties taking part in the Open House Weekend are listed on: www. propertywide.co.uk

website, brainchild of exrestaurateur Derek Blezard began two years ago initially covering Bournemouth Poole & Christchurch. It has now spread both East and West and has over 400 restaurants pubs and Bistros featured. As well as Offers and Meal Deals, “YMT” also has a What’s on Guide, table and accommodation booking on line, runs competitions and highlights news events. With investment YMT are hoping to roll the model initially across southern UK within 12 months.

A SLICE OF NEW ENGLAND


A once drab 60s detached home transformed with Eastern dÊcor & a lavish open plan layout. Maybury House is a slice of New England ‌ in England. The home of Chris and Fiona Bevan is just two miles from the walled town of Chichester in West Sussex. However, from the outside it wouldn't look amiss nestled amongst the New England style homes of Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont in America. Venture inside and it's different again, with the interiors having been given a distinctive Eastern twist.


28

When Chris and Fiona brought Maybury for ÂŁ715,000 in 2008 it was a drab 60s, detached home that featured a warren of different rooms. The couple spent ÂŁ350,000 completely transforming the property, with work taking around a year to complete, and today it is double the size. The front boasts white clapper board gables and a veranda, while inside it is all dark walnut floors, Eastern dĂŠcor and lavish open plan layout. In total, the property boasts five double bedrooms, four bathrooms, a luxurious kitchen and a stunning dining hall. The centrepiece is a magnificent vaulted sitting/living room and dining area. This huge space features a vast triple-height wall of glass that looks out on the garden and takes advantage of the southerly aspect. A modern glass block and

oak staircase rises up to one of the property's most dramatic features - a mezzanine first floor landing. Complete with glass balustrade and featuring a delightful sitting room, this area overlooks the main reception below and benefits from wonderful views. Partially sub-divided from the sitting/living room by a large central chimney breast, which features a remote controlled contemporary gas fireplace, is a cosy reception hall/winter dining room. Adjacent to these two areas is the luxurious kitchen, which was designed and manufactured in Germany. This room boasts Hacker graphite oak units with Kashmir white granite work surfaces and a beautiful porcelain tiled floor. Meanwhile, a bespoke glass central island fitted with a number of integral appliances takes pride of place. Next

to the main living space is a large extension added by Chris and Fiona that houses a garage and spa room. Accessed either by doors from the living room or doors from the garden, the spa room has its own sunken Jacuzzi, mood lighting and adjoining wet room. Upstairs the master bedroom has an open plan bathroom with screened wet room and twin glass hand basins. Meanwhile, the main family bathroom boasts a walk in tiled shower and an oval double ended bath. Outside there is a walled and secure front garden with driveway and shaped lawn with raised planters. At the rear clever landscaping incorporates a large hardwood decked area, a beautiful stone water feature the full width of the garden and two raised flower beds.

DIY EXPERT THIS WEEK: Get those jobs done with a little help from DIY guru Big Al. This week: how to harness the sun’s power by installing solar panels.

BENEFITS OF SOLAR ENERGY You may think that solar panels are a big expense and so not for you, but if you’re planning to stay in your home for a long time, installing them can make sense financially, as well as being beneficial to the environment. There are two types of solar panel ones that generate electricity (solar photovoltaics or PV), which are most popular, and ones that heat your home’s water (solar thermal). With both, you’ll cut your utility bills and CO2 emissions, but the benefits don’t end there. Solar PV panels can also earn you money, thanks to the Government’s Feed-In Tariffs scheme, which pays you for the electricity you generate and use and also for any surplus you supply to the National Grid. This could give you savings and income of around £670 a year, according to the Energy Saving Trust. Its website (www.energysavingtrust. org.uk) features a Solar Energy Calculator, where you can work out how you could benefit from the scheme. An average 3kWp (kilowatts peak) PV system, which will produce enough electricity for around 75% of a typical household’s needs, costs in the region of £10,000. Solar thermal panels cost much less, at around £3,000 to £5,000 for a typical system. They’ll provide around 33% of the hot water you need at home (depending on the size of your household), but won’t save you much money - between £55 and £80 a year, according to an Energy Saving Trust field trial. You may be able to get a grant to help with the cost

44

of the installation, or other financial assistance - check the Energy Saving Trust website for the latest schemes. As well as the thermal panels, you’ll need a boiler or immersion heater to give you additional hot water and sometimes to make the water heated by the panels hotter, especially in winter. You may also have to change your boiler and hot-water cylinder to a compatible one. If putting the panels on a pitched roof isn’t an option, you may be able to mount them on a frame on the ground, a wall or a flat roof instead. As with all solar panels, how well they’ll work will depend on how much sun they get - the sunnier the position, the better, although they can still work on cloudy days. Solar panels are heavy, so ground or wall-mounted ones could be a good option if the roof can’t take the weight. If your home’s leasehold, you may need permission from the freeholder to install solar panels. Restrictions may also apply if you live on ‘designated land’, such as a conservation area, and if the building’s listed, so ask your local council about what you can and can’t do. Where planning restrictions apply, solar roof tiles or slates may be acceptable to the planners. These are more expensive than panels, though. Standard solar panels are readily available - try the B&Q website (www.diy.com), where panels start at £2,198 for two. Alternatively, go to http://local.which.co.uk or www. microgenerationcertification.org to find solar panel installers. As ever, get as many quotations as possible to find the best deal.

PRODUCT OF THE WEEK: THIRST POCKETS MULTI CLOTH The Think all kitchen roll is the same? Thirst Pockets Multi Cloth is a really thick, absorbent kitchen roll that performs well in day-to-day, DIY and deep, spring cleaning. It’s different to most products because it has a cloth-like feel, which is created in a process called Airlaid. Latex is used as a binder and it isn’t soluble in water, so the fibres are strong even when wet. The result is paper towels that not only feel similar to cloth, but can also be rinsed and reused (without falling apart), so they’re more versatile than most.

BIG AL’S TOP TIP:

Q A

WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO FIX SKIRTING BOARD TO A WALL? If you’re fixing a skirting board to the wall, countersink the screws so you can fill over them with wood filler for a neat finish. You’ll also need to use flexible filler in the gap between the skirting board and the wall - wipe off the excess thoroughly as you apply it, and you may not need to paint over it. It’s easier to paint the skirting board before it’s fitted, especially if it’s going to be a different colour to the wall, but you will need to paint over the wood filler.

LOCAL OLYMPIC TORCH BEARER: One woman turned personal tragedy into a force for positive change Suicide Key Facts • There were 5,608 suicides in the UK in 2010. • The suicide rate is more than three times higher for men than women. • The suicide rate is highest for men aged 45-74. • Suicide is the leading cause of death for men under 35 years. Olympic Torch

Judi Meadows

On Saturday 19 May the Olympic torch began its epic journey around the UK, carried in relay by 8,000 Britons. Over the course of 70 days, the torch will journey through 1,000 cities, towns and villages and pass within 10 miles of 95% of the population enroute to London's Olympic Stadium. Each torch bearer has been selected for battling adversity and inspiring others with their actions. One of these is local woman Amy Meadows, who will be journeying with the torch on Tuesday 22 May.

anyone. A quality that too few people have nowadays. Sadly, she developed depression and in her final weeks, tinnitus too. Feelings of hopelessness overwhelmed her and she tragically decided suicide was the only way of stopping her anguish." explains Amy. "I was immediately determined that I would do everything I could to help save other lives threatened by suicide. Even by helping just one person I felt as though I would be honouring my mum and helping to ensure her death was not in vain."

Amy, 38, lives in Poole and runs her own communications consultancy, undertaking PR and marketing for charities, the NHS and companies such as boutique property agents Capital and Coastal.

The Judi Meadows Memorial Fund was set up two years ago and to date almost £200,000 has been raised. All funds have been channeled into undertaking research to understand the risk factors for suicide, and to In 2009, Amy's mum, Judi, aged 61, try to positively change the policies tragically took her own life after a short and practices that exist, for example but intense battle with depression. "My in the health care system, so that mum was deeply loved by her family professionals have the knowledge, and friends. Her unexpected death was skills and confidence to manage people a total shock to all that knew her. She appropriately. A vital part of the was a calm, gentle woman, who would charity's work is to encourage people to talk about suicide. Stigma and shame always take the time to listen to

can stop those feeling desperate to seek help, and it can inhibit bereaved families from sharing their experience. A key myth, that needs to be dispelled, is that when a person is suicidal that if their thoughts are vocalised that it may encourage the act. In fact, the evidence shows that by talking about suicide the risk of the individual taking their own life is actually reduced. A old school friend of Amy's was so impressed by the work that she was undertaking with the charity that she successfully nominated her to be a torch bearer. Amy says "I am so proud to have been selected and know my would be chuffed too. I'll hold the Olympic flame high in memory of the many thousands of lives lost to suicide and hope that by taking part I can help encourage people to think about people they know that may be at risk of suicide and need support."

We dwell in the village of Corfe Castle where it is commonplace to play host to a number of divergent events and visitors from far flung places. Lamentably my ingrained doctrine is one of thinly veiled hostility, concealed by casual indifference as I endeavour to manoeuvre my vehicle around our guests who resolutely dismiss my reasonably well intentional and understated tooting. Undeterred they peer feverishly at the viewfinders of their 20.3 mega pixel cameras, spurning the comparative haven of the footpath, obsessed as they are with capturing a memorable image of the ludicrous hotchpotch of medieval breeze blocks impersonating a tourist attraction. Unexpectedly however on the Friday before the Bank Holiday weekend as I drove into the village my curiosity was aroused courtesy of a roadside placard trumpeting the ’Viking Weekend’. Admittedly my closet O.C.D. leanings were initially intoxicated by the precise and pristine condition of the actual sign. Not for this proud warrior nation would there be smudged poor articulation daubed onto an eau-de-nil Primark pillowcase clinging on between two Sweet Pea canes, an arrangement which would entail a minimum of three drive by’s just to make out that the battles commenced promptly at 11 am. No here was a tour de force of the roadside ornament sitting gallantly up an impeccably straight pole with concise text lovingly weatherproofed via the marvel of encapsulation at home. In pursuit of personal growth we determined to expose ourselves to the eccentric world of one of the UK’s oldest and largest dark age re-enactment societies, buoyed by the presence of the 30 strong Weymouth based ’Hrafhslith’ which means ’Troop of the Raving’ sorry ’Raven’ ( Weymouth branch meetings every Tuesday at the Moose Lodge). However this strategy was temporarily sabotaged by the utterly predictable onslaught of biblical volumes of precipitation. Nevertheless on Saturday evening anticipating an evening of unbridled Norse revelry we popped down to our local pub and apologised our way through the Viking throng to the bar where ’Magnus the Potentially Menacing‘ a poster boy for all things hessian, was ordering up a diet coke with a sweet sherry chaser. This rather seemed to mirror the puzzlingly low key mood of his assembled heathen chums, then I grasped the reason why. According to Google these re-enactment weekends are graded into three levels small, medium and large. Due entirely to the National Trust shop peddling historically questionable children’s wooden swords and shields Corfe has been downgraded by the Viking ’Preservation of Authenticity’ committee to a ‘medium’ event. What this means in practice is that the unregulated rape and pillage so enjoyed by ‘large’ status villages is watered down to an under sized raiding party visiting an outlying hamlet, namely Swanage, and being mildly objectionable, which unhelpfully would probably be mistaken for a pleasantry. Sadly the historically accurate climax of the ‘large’ weekend is the Saturday night torching of a Viking longship. Relegated to a mere ‘medium’ event Corfe no longer basks in this privileged pre Health and Safety spectacle. Although I have it on good authority that the ’Solent Scene’ pleasure boat amended it’s itinerary that weekend thus excluding a potentially flammable stay at Wareham Quay. My last memory of their visit will be of driving out of the village on the Tuesday morning and just catching out of the corner of my eye Magnus and Ingrid being chased around a deserted campsite by two official looking gentlemen with butterfly nets.

Relaxing and entertaining outside is one of the summer's pleasures. Just saying 'al fresco' conjures images of informal gatherings and leisurely meals enjoyed outdoors, but it's all about the setting. A dull space furnished with wobbly, uncomfortable furniture won't encourage family and guests to linger, so it's important to create a special 'outdoor room' where you can socialise and eat in style. There's no excuse for a poor patio

these days as the design and quality of outdoor furniture improves year on year, with an ever more versatile range including day beds and coffee tables as well as traditional dining sets and weather-resistant loungers. We've sourced the essential ingredients available from the high street and online so you can choose your garden kit, and then sit back and wait for the sun!

CLEANBURN is our innovative new technology – it’s not just better for the stoves, it’s also better for the environment.

Virtually all of the Hunter stoves are approved twice; for burning both wood and smokeless fuel

The idea behind Cleanburn is to maximise combustion, so that more fuel is burnt and less is turned into deposits in the stove, chimney, or atmosphere. Our Cleanburn stoves have been proven to have lower emissions, which makes them among the most eco-friendly models on the market.

ONE HAPPY ITALIAN With a TV show on our screens and a new cookbook on the shelves, Antonio Carluccio explains why he canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get enough of Italian cooking!

RECIPE KING PRAWNS, CRAB, GARLIC & CHILLI INGREDIENTS

METHOD

175ml extra virgin olive oil

Heat the oil in a large frying pan, add the king prawns and cook for 2 minutes, turning once. Add the garlic, chilli and crab meat, season with salt, then reduce the heat and cook for a couple of minutes with the lid on.

12 fresh raw king prawns, shells on 6 garlic cloves, sliced lengthways 1 large red chilli, finely chopped Fresh crab meat from 2 large crabs, in chunks Salt A handful of flat-leaf parsley 250ml white wine 1 lemon, cut into wedges

(SERVES 4)

(SERVES 4)

Add the parsley, increase the heat and add the wine and reserved juices from the crab meat if you have any. Bubble until evaporated, then serve immediately with lemon wedges and lots of good country bread to mop up the juices.

COOKâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S TIP: Serve immediately with lemon wedges and lots of good country bread to mop up the juices

RECIPE CHILI, BACON & TOMATO PASTA INGREDIENTS

METHOD

400g bucatini

For the sauce, put the guanciale and onion in a pan with the oil and chilli, and fry gently for about 4-5 minutes. Add the white wine and tomatoes and cook for a further 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally.

80g pecorino, freshly grated 130g guanciale, cut into small cubes 1 small onion, finely chopped 3-4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil 1 hot dried red chilli, finely chopped 2 tbsp dry white wine 500g San Marzano tomatoes, cut into quarters

NEW FICTION HOME

NEW FICTION SKIOS

Home by Toni Morrison is published in hardback by Chatto & Windus, priced £12.99. Available May 3.

Skios by Michael Frayn is published in hardback by Faber and Faber, priced £15.99. Available in shops now.

The tenth novel from the Nobel Prize-winning author, who brought us The Bluest Eye and Beloved, introduces us to Frank Money, an African-American Korean war veteran who has returned to 1950s segregated America. Despite fighting for his country, he’s hardly welcomed home and has to contend with post-traumatic stress disorder from his time on the frontline. He breaks free from hospital and journeys back to Georgia with his younger sister, Cee. As with other Morrison novels, a split narrative technique is used to good effect, as the story flicks between the present day to the frontlines of Korea, and the childhood of Frank and his sister. Cee and Frank’s lover Lily also take turns narrating, but the main voice is that of Frank, revealing his haunting interior life.The story hints at the backgrounds of the siblings, but ultimately leaves a lot of questions unanswered, which may leave some readers frustrated as they get to the end of the novel.

A dramatist best known for his spoof Noises Off, currently running to rave reviews in the West End, Michael Frayn’s novels are - reliably - an even greater delight. This latest title from the prince of farce doesn’t disappoint, inciting unstifled chuckles from start to raucous, unexpected finish. On the sunny Greek island of Skios, as its expat community gears up for the social event of the year, a case of mistaken identity sparks a rapid chain of mayhem that threatens to topple the status quo. Writing sharply yet languidly, with tongue firmly in cheek, Frayn draws a cast of tarts and buffoons worthy of Gerald Scarfe. Professional organisers will groan with recognition at the logistical nightmares seen here. And for those who like to look deeper, the mirth has a serious side; the mayhem an allegory for the current European crisis. More than anything, though, this satirical gem is, quite simply, hilarious.

NEW FICTION CHASING VENUS

NEW FICTION THE LOVE LETTER

The Race To Measure The Heavens by Andrea Wulf is published in hardback by William Heinemann, priced £18.99. Available May 10.

The Love Letter by Fiona Walker is published in paperback by Sphere, priced £7.99. Available now.

Acclaimed London-based author Andrea Wulf turns from the bounty of the Earth to the glory of the stars for her latest book, Chasing Venus. Wulf, who released The Founding Gardeners last year and the award-winning The Brother Gardeners in 2010, shifts her analytical gaze to the 18th century, and a race around the world to chart the transits of Venus across the sun. In measuring the course of the closest planet to our own in a rare celestial event, scientists from across the globe came together in a bid to answer one of the burning questions of the Enlightenment; how big is the solar system? Replete with meticulous detail, delightful illustrations and a cast of very familiar names from world history, Chasing Venus is an eminently readable account of humanity’s effort to chart the heavens. At once an exhilarating adventure, a tale of personal obsession, a tragedy and a detailed history of astronomical endeavour, Wulf’s latest work is a fascinating read.

And although I embrace new experiences, unfortunately, I found this particular example of ‘women’s commercial fiction’ rather boring. Upper middle class literary agent Allegra “Legs” North ditches her first love, Francis, and embarks on an affair with her boorish boss Conrad, who insists Legs tries to get the company’s star author to attend the Devon-based arts festival run by her ex-lover’s family. Meanwhile, her artist mother is having an affair with her ex-lover’s bassoon-playing father. We’ve seen this kind of scenario before and better constructed by others. The plot is too convoluted yet, bizarrely, predictable and those plum-inthe-mouth accents are simply annoying. Walker may be billed as ‘the Jilly Cooper of the Cosmo generation’, but Cooper does it better.

Lets with pets...ideally avoided? As a nation of pet lovers we are inundated with enquiries from prospective tenants looking for rental accommodation for their families and family pet. The dogs trust estimates that 40% of the nations own a pet – mostly dogs and cats. Horror stories regarding pets destroying house and apartment often put landlords off accepting a tenant with a pet, the private rented sector does not lean in favour of pet owners and many struggle to find accommodation. If handled correctly a pet friendly policy could maximise rental income. •

There is potential for pets to chew or destroy • furniture supplied by the landlord, potentially leaving a bill for furniture replacement at the end of the tenancy, or the concern that carpets • and furnishings become infested with fleas. Why not take a larger pet deposit of 8 weeks rent? Or a non refundable pet deposit to cover • cleaning at the end of a tenancy. Properties that do accept pets are in high demand, often achieving a premium rental and longer term tenants, as it is harder to find somewhere to move to.

If you would like to discuss your pet friendly property or any other rental investment you have. Please contact us on the telephone number below.

Properties that accept pets are not staying vacant for very long. Find out some information on the pet. Is it big/small? Old or young? Has it been in rental property before? Can the previous landlord provide a pet reference? Make sure you put a pet clause in the agreement so that there can be no doubt with regards to the tenant’s responsibility regarding the pet during the tenancy and on departure. Make sure you have an inventory conducted as supporting evidence on vacation.

KATHRYN THOMAS ORIGINAL OIL PAINTINGS

‘It’s beyond just colour’ 76 x 122

After watching a storm roll in across a Cornish cliff-top as a young art student, Kathryn Thomas has been captivated by the impact the changing light has upon the land, sea and sky. 25 years later, Kathryn has carved a successful career from translating her visions through natural oil paints on to high quality linen. Her absorbing artwork now hangs on the walls of collectors across the world from Iceland to Australia. With her latest exhibition ‘Shining Lights 2012’, Kathryn has created an entire collection focused on one location. Kathryn said:

“Since moving from Bristol to Poole, I’ve become fascinated by the stunning surroundings of my new environment and I’m excited about the challenge of translating these sometimes majestic sometimes quiet sights through my art.” From an autumn dawn, through the glow of a midday winter sun to a long summer evening, ‘Shining Lights 2012’ features more than 50 interpretations of a variety of natural light shows 146

across the local area. Though inspired by the Dorset coastline, the setting of her paintings will not be easily recognisable as Kathryn’s works are not intended to be exact copies of nature. She aims to surprise by using different techniques of application - layering to enhance depths and translucency – to make the image appear different each time the viewer looks at it, depending on their mood or perspective. Kathryn added:

“On a universal level, through painting I hope to encourage people to be aware of the power of nature and to realise our fleeting relationship with this planet.” With previous exhibitions in London, Bristol, Cannes, the Netherlands, Texas and Reykjavik, Kathryn is excited to be hosting her latest show in Poole. From Sunday May 6 to Monday June 4, her studio on West Quay Road is open to the public every day from 11am to 7pm. Kathryn will be on hand throughout the exhibition to answer queries, share thoughts and listen to opinions regarding her new collection.

FACT FILE: Exhibition: Kathryn Thomas Shining Lights 2012 Date: Sunday 6th May to Monday 4th June 2012 Time: Daily from 11am to 7pm Address: The Studio, West Quay House, 4 West Quay Road, Poole, Dorset, BH15 1HT Costs: Admission is free

MOTORING NEWS The latest news on all things motoring

NEW PORSCHE BOXSTER DEBUT The new Boxster has just arrived in UK showrooms and featuring an all-new lightweight body, new flat-six engines with direct petrol injection, a completely revised chassis and sharper styling.Prices start at £37,589. Up to 35kg lower weight, a 60mm longer wheelbase, widened track on the front and rear axles, and larger wheels and tyres significantly enhance the performance of the new car by notably increasing its stability and agility. In fact, when equipped for optimal driving dynamics the new Boxster S can lap the famous NürburgringNordschleife circuit 12 seconds faster than its predecessor. These performance attributes also help to deliver - in combination with many other new features - up to 15 per cent greater fuel efficiency. Says Porsche "With its distinctive roadster styling, the new Boxster clearly signals the unique driving experience on offer; shorter front and rear overhangs, a significantly forwardshifted windscreen, and a lowered roofline all add up to an expressive, purposeful stance. The appearance of the new Boxster is inspired by its illustrious lineage and also influenced by contemporary Porsche models. "There are clear references to the legendary 550 Spyder and 718 RS from the Fifties and Sixties, while subtle cues from modern-day icons like the Carrera GT and much-anticipated 918 Spyder super-sports car are also evident." A new, fully electric hood opens to reveal a distinctive interior

whose design offers the driver and passenger increased space, while the centre console originating in the Carrera GT - further improves ergonomics. The Porsche Boxster is powered by a choice of flat-six engines with direct petrol injection, which beat literally at its heart. The mid-mounted power unit fitted in the Boxster delivers 265 hp from a 2.7 litre displacement – 10 hp more than its larger capacity 2.9-litre predecessor. The 3.4-litre unit in the Boxster S delivers 315 hp, 5 hp more than before. Both models feature a manual six-speed gearbox as standard, with the seven-speed dual-clutch available as an option. The philosophy of Porsche Intelligent Performance makes the new car not only the fastest Boxster ever, but also the most efficient roadster the company has ever made. When fitted with the PDK transmission and Sport Chrono Package option. The 2.7-litre Boxster sprints from 0- 60mph in 5.5 sec, the Boxster S in just 4.8 sec. Combined fuel consumption for the Boxster with PDK is 36.7mpg. The Boxster features an Alcantara interior, 18” alloy wheels, Auto stop/start and Sports mode, remote control hood operation, audio CD with 7-inch colour touch-screen control, a universal audio interface offering MP3 connectivity and a three year warranty. The Boxster S adds 19-inch alloy wheels, partial leather interior and Bi-Xenon headlights in addition to the power advantage of the larger 3.4-litre engine.

TYRE LABEL CAMPAIGN

148

An animation starring TyreSafe’s family of crash test dummies is spearheading the organisation’s drive to inform motorists about the new tyre labelling regulations coming into force in November. Along with the short film featuring the McIntyres, available to watch at www. tyresafe.org, the not-for-profit organisation has also produced a leaflet for drivers to explain what the new tyre labels will mean. There’s also a new dedicated tyre labelling section on its website. Stuart Jackson, chairman of TyreSafe, explains: “This new legislation is one of the biggest changes to affect the way drivers buy tyres in recent years, but many motorists don’t even know it’s going to happen. “From

1st November 2012 all new car tyre labels will display three key measures including wet braking performance, which is critical to road safety. Our educational material explains what they are and what they mean in a clear and concise manner.” The performance measures will rate the tyre’s fuel efficiency, wet braking performance and exterior noise emission characteristics. Jackson added: “The labels will help to explain to motorists how tyres perform in these three key areas and help them make a more informed choice about safer and more environmentally friendly driving." To view and download TyreSafe’s tyre labelling educational material visit www.tyresafe.org.

NEW MODEL FOR FORD

UK market leader Ford has maintained its car sales surge in 2012, with volume and share increases in April and for the year to date, compared with 2011. A significant factor in this success is the introduction of new high-technology features and models. For example, the new 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine in Focus, with its combination of outstanding fuel efficiency and strong performance, is already proving an asset in Ford showrooms, accounting for 17 per cent of Focus sales in April – its first full month of sales. Ford car sales were up 11.5 per cent in April, compared with April 2011, while the market as a whole was up 3.3 per cent, acording to the official figures from the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT): Ford car sales and share up in April and for the year to date Ford’s UK car sales lead is increased in April and for the year to date Ford Fiesta leads UK car sales in April and for the year to date Ford commercial vehicles lead the market for 46th successive year. Mark Ovenden, Ford of Britain managing director, said: "Ford’s car range is maintaining its strong sales momentum through 2012, stretching our sales lead over our nearest rival and hitting a higher sales rate than the overall market. “Our bestever range of vehicles and our unmatched dealer network continue to set the pace in the UK. Apart from the new 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine in Focus and the new Ford Ranger we are looking forward to launching more exciting new products this year, including the Focus ST, the new Ford B-MAX, and the new Ford Transit." Ford Fiesta continued as the UK best seller in April, taking 6.2 per cent of the total car market with 8,780 sales, up from 4.9 per cent and 6,755 sales in April 2011. Ford Fiesta is also the UK best seller for the year to date; its sales have increased from 34,679 to 42,170, compared with the same period in 2011. Other Ford models that performed strongly in April and secured sales and share increases compared with April 2011 were the Ford Focus, Ford Mondeo and Ford Galaxy. For the year to date the top sales performers with sales and share increases are the Ford Ka, Ford Fiesta and Ford Focus.

THE CRAFTING QUEEN After Anthea Turner’s iconic Tracy Island model on Blue Peter. Anthea talks to HOUSE about why she’s carried on crafting.

154

We’ve been hearing a lot about the declining high street lately, as more and more people are favouring alternative avenues to get their shopping fix! In a time-poor day and age, TV shopping has experienced a huge boom, bucking the retail trend and posting huge profits. We’re not talking about rubbish Tupperware ranges any more, customers can get everything they need via their remote controls - from laptops to gym equipment to the very latest in fashion! In April, once the digital switchover is phased in, 63 million people in the country will have access to Ideal World; a UK shopping channel whose sister channel includes Create and Craft TV, the world’s number 1 channel dedicated entirely to crafting! Now, Ideal World has partnered with Britain’s Perfect Housewife, Anthea Turner, to capitalise on Britain’s mania for making things! Perhaps as a reaction to tough economic times, crafting has re-emerged as the nation’s new favourite past-time, with millions of people getting thrifty and creative! Whether it’s card-making, mosaics, jewellery design or cake baking, crafting has never been as popular as it is now. Create & Craft is one of Ideal World TV’s most successful subsidiaries and now the company has made original Crafting Queen Anthea Turner its brand ambassador in a bid to get EVERYONE in the UK crafting –


NE20 years after her iconic Tracy Island model on Blue Peter (which to this day, is still protected in a sealed container in Anthea’s garage!). Anthea Turner talks to HOUSE about why she’s carried on crafting and why perhaps even more of us should roll up our sleeves and have a go. For many of us, when we think of crafting, we think of yesteryear and our mother’s donning their aprons in a bid to make something out of nothing. So why do you think crafting is making a comeback. It’s becoming much more accessible. Also, since the world imploded with the recession, there are few people who weren’t in some form and it’s made us all look at how we are living our lives. We were all too ready to throw things away, being a more disposable society instead of trying to repair things. But nowadays, and retail figures prove this, we are thinking ‘if I painted that chair or got a stencil I could actually keep it’. We’ve started to just look around the home and think ‘I can mend that and bring it back to life’. We have become cost savvy which is really really good. We were talking about cross stitching at Create and Craft and I was thinking that I hadn’t done that for a long time and thought why not have a go, so I did. I went onto the internet and onto you tube and I realised that I hadn’t forgotten everything and realised I could still do it.

Your time as Blue Peter TV presenter, and your famous Tracy Island model, highlighted your talent for all things craft. Is it a hobby you have continued since your Blue Peter days or is it a recent revival? It’s a little legacy of Blue Peter, but I have always been involved in the arts, even at school. I’m one of the few people that has an a-level in craft and design. I’ve always liked making things since childhood. Give me some glue and a few bits and bobs and I’ll pimp anything! There are so many beautiful things nowadays, like a photo frame I saw recently that had lots of little bits all around the frame and I thought actually why not just buy a cheap frame and then I can fix those bits and pieces around and make something unique. Recently, I bought a cushion from Homebase. It was a cushion with the word ‘love’ written in the middle made out of felt. It was nice but didn’t have that extra little polish to it. So I redid all the blanket stitch around the outside and then I sewed buttons onto the word ‘love’. I always keep buttons from shirts, because as my mum always said to me you never know when you might need them, and I did! I sewed all these lovely, different buttons on the word love and it looked like I’d bought a very expensive cushion from somewhere like notonthehighstreet.com. There are so many things you can create all under the umbrella of craft. For example card making is massive, there are 70,000 members of the create and craft website for their card making club. They produce some amazing things. If you bought a fancy card you can pay £6 easily for one. But if you buy the right bits and bobs you can make your own for much cheaper. I buy a basic card kit, the card and envelope, cut a potato in half, cut out a heart, cover it in paint then stamp it on the card and voila, there’s an ‘I love you’ card.

What have you crafted at home and what is your favourite. I’m a Gemini and a bodger jack of all trades. I’m good at going into shops finding something really nice, then seeing the price and thinking I can probably do that myself for much cheaper. So whether it is embellishing mirrors or altering clothes, I’ll have a go. I don’t make anything from scratch anymore. Christmas, I come into my own, I love making decorations. Last year I made stuffed hearts, strung them all on string in Christmas colours and they looked great. I’ve made bunting, I cut triangles out with pinking shears and glue gunned them onto ribbon. I glued buttons onto the corners of mine which made them look really pretty. Do you involve your family and if so how? Crafting is great for the family. If you’ve got small children you can really engage them. I remember when all of a sudden I had 3 step daughters under 6 thinking ‘what am I going to do with them?’ So I got the craft box out, the paint, the glue and it was so much fun for everybody. Get children making cakes as well. We have caught the cupcake fancy from America, which is a great starter for children. It’s just about being a little creative. People should just start by embellishing things, so look around your home and think about how can you improve things with paint, glue and sticking and even blanket stitch – we all learnt it at school and it is the easiest thing to do. I think it’s a bit like productive relaxation. Because while I was crocheting a blanket, I watched back to back editions of Prisoners Wives. I’m one of these people wracked with catholic guilt and feel I have to always do something, so I’m watching the television and crocheting, doing my cushion and being really productive.

did for my husband. I also bought those basic brown tags from the post office and did a heart potato print on that and then had a beautiful gift tag. I think it is all about having a go. Start out small, go along to classes if you want but you don’t have to. Do it slowly and don’t buy everything. Start small and have a go and find out that way first what you enjoy doing and what you are good at. Tell us about your involvement with Create and Craft TV. Create and Craft was born out of a shopping channel called Ideal World and realised the sales of crafting things were going up far faster than other things they were selling, so hived it off and started a TV show called create and craft. My role as brand ambassador is really to bring other people to the party and encourage people who haven’t thought about having a go at create to have a thought about what you could do and what fun you could have. You’re looking in fantastic shape, how do you stay looking so good and fight off the years? I sleep well and I have a good relationship with food and don’t drink too much. I do work out. I’ve always exercised. I think a healthy body equals a healthy mind. It gives you energy and you have to do more as you get older to stay the same. Also make sure you’ve got a good haircut! I also love facial exercise. We all think about our bingo wings and saddle bags but we forget about the face and jowls. So facial exercise is a favourite of mine. Joan Collins mentioned this years ago and a friend of mine gave me a book and a tape on it and it all made sense and I must admit at traffic lights or when drying my hair, I do my facial exercises! What is your favourite way to relax?

How would you suggest anyone interested in crafting should begin? The word craft frightens people because they think they have to do something extravagant like quilting, but start basic. Even if it is just potato printing or papier mache. I always have brown paper in the house, because it doesn’t matter whether it is a birthday or Christmas you can customise it. Wrap the present first in the brown paper tying it with either ribbon or string then you can do the potato printing with Christmas trees or hearts for Valentines like I

I have a horse called Caramello who I’ve had for 13 years and we go out riding. I live where there’s lots of open woodland in Esher and it is amazing countryside for riding.

BRAIN POWER

PROTEIN Most of the body is made of protein. Muscles, organs, hair, nails and ligaments are all composed of protein, so it’s obvious why protein is an important part of the diet. Other than water, it is the main constituent of the body, but it gets a whole lot more complex with the brain! The brain and its neurons are composed mainly of fat however and they communicate with each other via proteins. When you eat carbohydrates your body will release calming hormones like tryptophan which will make you tired where as when you eat protein you release hormones that stimulate dopamine which helps you think clearer.

NUTRITIONAL TIPS 1

If you are hungry or light-headed, eat small amounts of lean protein such as poached or boiled eggs, light cheese or yogurt.

2

Eat fatty fish such as salmon, tuna, and swordfish or sardines. The fish oil contains essential fatty compounds Omega 3, DHA and EPA that play a critical roll in brain development

3

Flaxseeds are another excellent source of Omega 3, an essential fatty acid (EFA).

4

Minimize your sugar consumption. Stay away from sweet cereals. However, a word of caution; if you are over tired and prone to too much caffeine, alcohol and stress, then you will struggle to think clearly and no amount of protein will help! 

PRESS UP

Place toes and hands on the floor, making sure your back is in a neutral position. Keep your hands 1.5 times shoulder-width and brace abdominals. Lower yourself until your elbows are at 90 degrees. Push up and repeat 8-12 times initially.

PULL UP

Grasp a bar with your hands, palms facing away. Place your hands shoulder length apart. Pull yourself off the floor, your arms and back will be working the most as well as core. Breathe steadily & bring your head above the bar’s level. Lower yourself back down, but do not allow your feet to touch the floor, repeat 8-12 times.

MY TOP SUPERFOODS • •

• •

• • •

Salmon - a great source of protein and omega-3 fatty acids Avocado – often misunderstood, but take my word for it, one of the best fats. Turkey - Enough said - all you need is a hot oven Blueberries - they are a great antioxidant and will add some sweetness to your food Almonds - great fat and great protein (watch out for allergies) Eggs –great source of protein. Opt fo omega 3 enriched and free rang. Coconuts - superfood to cook with, eat and drink! Substitute for dairy.

TOP BODYWEIGHT EXERCISES

SQUAT

Place your feet just wider than shoulder width with your toes turned slightly outwards, brace your abdominals, look straight ahead and sit backwards. Keep your knees tracking the same as feet until your thighs are parallel with the floor, drive hips forward and return to standing position repeat 8-12 times.
