FIRST COMPLETION FOR WILSON THOMAS & BANYARDS

FIRST-TIME BUYER NUMBERS REMAIN HIGH The number of first-time buyers seeking mortgages remained strong in April 2012 despite the end of the Stamp Duty holiday in March, according to local estate agency Connells. Indeed, Connells recorded a 14.5 per cent increase in mortgage sales to firsttime buyers in April this year compared to April 2011. “Despite reports and commentary that first-time buyers have dropped off the map since Stamp Duty was reinstated for properties over £125,000, we are still seeing higher numbers than we did last year,” says Erin

Sinnott, Mortgage Services Consultant for Connells. “The race to beat Stamp Duty exemption certainly helped boost first-time buyer numbers in the first quarter of the year but this should not be overstated as the only reason we saw more activity from this group,” Erin continues. “Our figures show there are still many first-time buyers out there who want to buy a home even though they now have to pay Stamp Duty.” In the first four months of 2012, Connells also recorded a 21.7 per cent increase in mortgage sales to those

Sarah is selling their property and moving home compared to the same period last year. Its mortgage sales to all buyers, including first-time buyers, home movers, those remortgaging and buy-tolet investors has increased by almost a third when compared to the first four months in 2011.

DIY EXPERT THIS WEEK: Get those jobs done with a little help from DIY guru Big Al. This week: How to fill awkward and hard-to-fill gaps in the walls of your homes.

RE-PLASTERING OR LINING PAPER?

PRODUCT OF THE WEEK: PLUG IT POLYFILLA You simply cut off how much you need, knead it (wearing protective gloves) until it changes colour, work it into the hole - it stays workable for up to four minutes - and then fill over it with conventional filler, if necessary. It’s that simple - and mess free. But it’s more than just an awkward-gap filler - it can also be used to plug holes that you need to reuse for refixing curtain poles and shelves, etc. Plug It sets hard, can be screwed into - there’s no need for Rawlplugs - and can support up to 20kg in weight. It can be used both indoors and out for plaster, brick and concrete. A versatile, compact and really useful addition to your toolbox.

£5.11 (Pollycell)

Get those jobs done with a little help from DIY guru Julia Gray. This week: how to fill awkward and hard-to-fill gaps in the walls of your homes. Wallpaper, especially textured paper, can hide a multitude of sins. While you may not be able to live with it any more, removing it is a risky business because once you do, the walls (and ceilings) may need replastering. Not generally a job for DIYers (if you fancy having a go, B&Q does a Patch Plastering & Introduction to Skimming class - see www.diy.com/ youcandoit), replastering will give you a good finish, although you’ll need to fill and sand the walls once the plaster has dried (it usually goes pale pink when it has) to make them as perfect as possible. Employing a plasterer needn’t be expensive, but it is quite a messy job and even newly replastered walls can develop hairline cracks within weeks, which you’ll need to fill, or cover with lining paper. Lining paper come in various thicknesses, with the thickest designed for walls in the worst state of repair. It’s quite common to hang lining paper horizontally, especially pastethe-wall ones, which are the easiest

38

to use. With these, you simply apply wallpaper paste to the wall with a brush or roller and then hang the paper. You don’t have to wait for the paste to soak in to the paper and you don’t have to grapple with soggy lengths of paper. Lining paper can be used to make less-than-perfect walls look better if you don’t want to have them replastered, but lumps and bumps will be noticeable if light falls across them - lamps are one of the worst offenders. Got a wall that’s spongy and moves slightly when you press it? The plaster is blown, meaning it’s no longer adhered properly. The blown area will ideally need to be replastered, although you may be able to just use lining paper to keep the plaster in place, as long as you don’t put any weight on it, such as tiles or shelves. If you don’t mind the fact that your walls have seen better days, great. This look often suits period properties, especially cottages, and shabby-chic homes. The best way to enhance uneven walls is to use a chalky or flat-matt emulsion. Paint with any kind of sheen, such as silk emulsion, will emphasise the flaws, so avoid at all costs.

BIG AL’S TOP TIP:

Q

WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO POLYSTYRENE CEILING TILES?

A

To remove polystyrene ceiling tiles, make sure you have a stepladder tall enough to enable you to reach the ceiling without overstretching, as this is dangerous. The ladder should be on a flat, stable surface and your floor covering should be protected from falling debris, unless you’re planning to replace it. You’ll need a wallpaper-stripping knife to remove the polystyrene tiles, but be careful not to damage the ceiling underneath, especially if the knife’s blade is sharp, because plaster can be soft and prone to gouges. Once you’ve removed the tiles, you’re left with the problem of the adhesive they were fixed with - use a hot-air gun to soften it before scraping it off. Try scrubbing off any remaining adhesive with an abrasive sponge dipped in solvent thinner. Be careful when using the hot air gun, as, again, you don’t want to damage the ceiling - or yourself. Play safe by wearing protective gloves and goggles, and remember to ventilate the room. It’s also a good idea to wear a shower cap to protect your hair from the debris. If you’re struggling to remove the adhesive or the ceiling’s damaged, you’ll need to skim it or get a plasterer to do it.

FUNNY GIRL The second series of Episodes, in which Matt LeBlanc plays a caricature of himself, began on BBC 2 on Friday, May 11.

His co-star and former on-screen lover Tamsin Greig opens up about getting cosy with everyone's favourite 'Friend', being foulmouthed on set and why she represents the common woman. "I'm glad quite a lot of my family are dead," declares the usually ever-so-nice Tamsin Greig. The Green Wing and Love Soup actress is explaining her horror at discovering a stream of expletives she was told would be bleeped out during a scene in the first series of episodes, had actually made it on air- in all their obscene glory.

"I don't really swear so to come out with this filth, this absolute bile, was a shocker," Her two nieces can only just look her in the eye again, while her own sons [she also has a daughter] were "freaked out" at watching their mother get intimate with Stephen Mangan, her long-time friend and on-screen husband. Or at least he was - until she ended up in bed with Matt LeBlanc. If none of that makes sense, then it means you missed out on the first series of Episodes, the razor sharp comedy from the pen of David 'Friends' Crane and Jeffrey Klarik (Mad About You).

50


It stars Matt LeBlanc playing an outrageous version of himself and Mangan (Sean) and Greig (Beverly) as an English couple who are lured to Hollywood to adapt their much-loved British boarding-school sitcom, Lyman’s Boys. The intelligent original is soon mangled by the US TV system through the network's insistence on replacing the lead actor (erudite Shakespearean veteran Richard Griffith) with Matt LeBlanc - and calling it Pucks. Simultaneously, Sean and Beverly find themselves in a complicated triangle with LeBlanc, so by the end of the first series, all three are bloodied and bruised, with hearts broken and friendships ruined. That's when the network calls to give them the good news: their show is being picked up for a full series. "When we join them they've had four months in LA knowing their marriage is in pieces and yet they have to stay there because they are under contract to write this show," says a fresh-faced and glowing ("We have a tanning booth on set") Greig, 45, who's wearing jeans and a cream jumper. "The second series looks at how you find a course through that nightmare; knowing that your personal life is in tatters but your professional life is very much under the spotlight and somehow you've got to get on with it." As the series progresses, viewers are plunged deeper into the twisted world of making television in a portrait gallery of megalomaniac network executives, surgically-enhanced actresses and naked stalkers who appear unexpectedly in your kitchen. "Interestingly Beverly and Sean start the second series in a diametrically opposed position from when they began the first," Greig explains. "In the first series, Sean really wanted to be in LA and Beverly didn't. "In the second, he doesn't want to be in LA but has to because of the work, and Beverly suddenly finds herself wanting to be, because she knows that's her only way of being with Sean. "The whole thing's flipped with the glorious idiocy of Matt LeBlanc in the middle of it." The actress praises the actor for being "a game bird", as the LeBlanc in Episodes is a far cry from the innocent and playful Joey. "The show blows out of the water this idea of celebrity and that you can possibly know them from glossy magazines and paparazzi

photographs," says Greig. "For him to play an invention of Matt LeBlanc is such a brilliant way for him to say you don't really know. That might happen, that might not happen - you just don't know." 'LeBlanc's reaction to Sean and Beverly's marriage split is "as unbelievable, tender, vulnerable and stupid as always but in the best possible way", laughs Greig. "I think he's feeling the pain of losing his friend but I don't know whether there's much remorse. "He's just this sort of puppy that doesn't realise he's messed on your carpet then walks in it and around your house, with it still in his paws." Although billed as a comedy, Episodes also has dark moments that viewers might have been surprised by. "They billed Slumdog Millionaire as the feelgood film of the year and you know what, it flipping isn't," says Greig. "People went to see that film and were terrified and completely overwhelmed but knew at the end of it there was a feel-good element to it." Likewise, she acknowledges many people will have been drawn to Episodes because of a deep fondness for Friends and LeBlanc. "There's a tangible swell of heart-warming generosity towards him, so I think people were surprised because you get to see the darker side of the invention that's Matt LeBlanc. "I think it's brilliant. He's not Joey, we don't live in Friends. Life is altogether darker and more grown-up." Saying that, Greig couldn't believe the number of women ("really brilliant, professional, educated, dynamic women") who asked what it was like to kiss LeBlanc. "I'm sure no one said to Matt, 'What was it like kissing Tamsin Greig? That must have been a real highlight of your career'," she says, half laughing. "He's just a bloke and actually kissing is so technical. It's about being at the right angle and having the mouth in a certain position because a real kiss doesn't look very good on camera." Unlike the first series, which was shot entirely in the UK through effective use of green screen and lighting, the cast spent a week filming in LA for the second series. Greig's not so sure she'd like to work there full-time. "I loved the idea of going out there with this show but I'm very conscious of the power of studios to give you your look and to manipulate

how you're perceived visually," says Greig. "I'm not interested in that at all as an actor. I don't care what shape I am, I don't care how old I look but Hollywood does, so it would be a tricky relationship," she says. "I'm not stupid - I'm not young and I'm not beautiful and maybe people are drawn to people who are ordinary. Maybe I'm standing up for the common woman," says Greig, who hasn't stopped working since starting out in the early Nineties. "My sons asked, 'Is it hard being an actor?' I said, 'The hardest thing is sexism really rules still'," says Greig. "For every seven male roles there are two female roles and for every seven actresses there are two actors. The boys were like, 'What mum? That's sick!' They couldn't get their heads around it. "But I've been incredibly blessed and I am only ever grateful when I turn up with fantastic material like this," says Greig.

DREAM HOME QUEENS PARK A GREAT TALKING POINT It’s difficult to know where to start in describing this fabulous large Queens Park family home. We could talk about the location, right opposite a wooded section of the golf course (great for the kids as well as golfers) and a short walk to the ever popular Park School. We could mention the large and level south facing rear garden which is designed to offer space for entertaining and play, with large lawned area, bark play area, paved terrace, and two decked areas for BBQs and relaxing. We could discuss at length the great attention to detail that is the hallmark of the extensive programme of improvements carried out top create this superb home. – including top notch central heating, refurbished roof, updated electrics, replastered walls and ceilings…….. However, our favourite topic of conversation is the 34’ long Kitchen/Living Room which is a great daytime space, especially at this time of year when the bifold doors can be drawn back to really link garden and house. Fitted with luxury units in a style that suits the period of the house really well, there is a Rangemaster dual fuel cooker and all the usual appliances you would expect, centred

GUIDE PRICE £779,500 around an island unit. The room is large enough for a big dining table and a sofa too so there’s space for everyone. The adjacent utility room and log store are handy for the more mundane tasks. A large study, cloakroom and cosier sitting room (with woodburner) complete the living space and there are 4 first floor bedrooms (Bedroom 1 with en suite) and very large family bathroom, and a second floor bedroom. The Queens Park area of Bournemouth is so convenient, with lots of leisure facilities within easy reach, and close enough to the Wessex Way for commuting out of Bournemouth. Whilst cosmopolitan Charminster Road offers a wide selection of eclectic restaurants and smaller shops, Bournemouth town centre is not too far away, with a wider choice of shops, etc. as well as the renowned Blue Flag beaches.

FEATURES • Superb reinvention of classic Queens Park home • Beautiful fusion of modern style and period character • Set off by large south facing rear garden • 34’ long Kitchen/Living Room with bifold doors out to garden • Situated opposite trees of Queens Park Golf Course • A fabulous family home

NEW FICTION

The Red House by Mark Haddon is published in hardback by Jonathan Cape, priced £16.99. Available May 10.

The Innocents by Francesca Segal is published in hardback by Chatto & Windus, priced £14.99. Available now.

You can’t choose your family - but you can choose, perhaps despite your better judgment, to spend a week with them. After their mother’s death, Richard rents a remote Welsh cottage to share with his sister Angela and their partners and children, with the aim of patching up their relationship. The four adults and four children all come with their burdens - Angela haunted by Karen, the stillborn daughter whose birthday falls the week of the holiday, newly married doctor Richard facing a disciplinary hearing at work, Angela’s husband Dominic grappling with a secret affair, and their teenage children working out what kind of adults they might become. Vulnerable eight-yearold Benjy is left as the lone voice of reason in the whirling maelstrom of emotions. Mark Haddon has a ventriloquist’s touch and writes with economical beauty, revealing a detailed anatomy of the human condition. He has struck gold with The Red House, which deserves to be as big a hit as his previous best-seller The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-time. A must-read.

The Innocents is the debut novel from journalist and critic Francesca Segal. The novel is a modern reworking of Edith Wharton’s much-loved The Age Of Innocence, set in a tight-knit north London Jewish community. Reputable junior lawyer Adam is about to marry his childhood sweetheart Rachel. She represents everything safe and traditional about his upbringing and they are set for a comfortable future together. But a visit from Ellie, Rachel’s sexier and vulnerable cousin from New York, suddenly throws Adam off guard. Ellie unleashes something he has never known before and he must choose between lust and the responsibility owed to his community. Meanwhile, Adam’s law firm, run by Rachel’s father, is representing Ellie in a case filed against her for extra-marital relations and underage sex. Should Adam mix business with pleasure? An absorbing page-turner, The Innocents combines a thrilling read with an insight into Jewish culture.

GIRL WHO FELL FROM THE SKY

FACING THE TORTURER

The Girl Who Fell From The Sky by Simon Mawer is published in hardback by Little, Brown, priced £16.99. Available now.

Facing The Torturer: Inside The Mind Of A War Criminal by Francois Bizot published in hardback by Rider Books, priced £16.99. Available now.

Man Booker Prize-shortlisted author Simon Mawer doesn’t disappoint with his latest spy novel about a young woman plucked from her desk job at the Women’s Auxiliary Air Force to train for a secret Second World War mission. Marian Sutro’s fluency in French is one draw for her unnamed recruiters, but her ability to easily tackle exercises in hand-to-hand combat, as well as staying cool and inventing a cover story, mean she is picked to go into occupied France to help the resistance. She’s faced with the enemy, love and betrayal - but will she make it back home alive? Mawer’s thriller is nerve-wracking and tense, while its twists and turns leave question marks until the very last page.

When the French ethnographer Francois Bizot was studying the history of the Buddhist religion in the Cambodian countryside, death came close to claiming him. Arrested by the feared Khmer Rouge, he was thought to be a CIA spy and sentenced to death, but he was to be saved by a man who at first wanted to kill him, ‘Comrade Duch’. The book deals with Bizot’s imprisonment, and the trial of his former jailer and other followers of Pol Pot. Bizot understands one truly terrible thing: Duch is no monster. He has been fashioned into the appearance of one by circumstance. A memoir and a court record, it is a disturbing read on many levels. And a testimony for those millions who have no voice since Duch, and others like him, silenced them. A difficult but essential read.

Tea with the Queen We pay homage to the Diamond Jubilee with some tantalising recipes and ideas that will help you throw a tea party fit for a queen.

Already whetted by the Royal Wedding, our appetite for street parties is back with a bang this year as the Queen's Diamond Jubilee proved. And there was no more fitting way to mark Her Majesty's 60 years on the throne than the quintessentially British culinary experience of afternoon tea.

THE PERFECT BREW

TOP TEA

Think you know how to make the perfect cuppa? Think again! Fortnum & Mason's assistant buyer for tea and coffee, Margot Cooper, gives her top tips.

Fortnum's Margot Cooper recommends these classic brews, along with tasty treats to complement each one...

1. Use a giant teapot if you're making tea for lots of people. Warm the pot first. Boil the kettle, rinse the pot with the boiled water, and then throw that water away.

Classic Breakfast Tea "This goes brilliantly with milk, but goes equally well with a slice of lemon if you brew it lightly. Serve this with a rich, strong chocolate cake," says Cooper.

2. Use loose tea rather than teabags to get a cleaner, clearer flavour. If you can get eight cups from your pot, use around eight teaspoons. But a practice run before your party will help you decide how light or dark you like your tea.

Earl Grey "This is great for those who like their tea a bit flavoured. Because of the bergamot in Earl Grey, it goes well with a lemon tart. It's also good served with a Victoria sponge."

3. Add freshly boiled water to the pot, pop the lid on and let it brew for between three and five minutes. On average, people brew tea from a teabag for 19 seconds, but proper tea needs more time. 4. Once it's brewed, give it a stir and use a strainer to pour the tea into teacups. You can add milk first or last, depending on taste.

(MAKES 6)

Jasmine Tea "A flowering tea, such as a jasmine one, is best brewed in a glass teapot for the visual effect. Try it with a delicately flavoured snack, like a pavlova."

RECIPE STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKES INGREDIENTS

METHOD

225g (8oz) self-raising flour

Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas Mark 4. Lightly grease a baking tray. Sift the flour and salt together and mix in the ground almonds. Cream the butter and sugar together and the egg yolk. Work in the flour and almond mixture using your fingers to make a fine dough. Roll the mixture out on a lightly floured surface to about 4mm (1/4 inch) thick and cut out 12 x 7cm (23/4 inch) rounds using a fluted cutter and re-rolling as needed. Place on the prepared tray, sprinkle with a little caster sugar and bake for 8-10 minutes. Leave to go cold. Whip the cream, adding the sugar, and pipe a rosette on top of six of the biscuits. Fold the sliced strawberries into the remaining cream and spoon on top of the remaining biscuits. Add the rosette-topped biscuits and decorate each with half a strawberry.

A pinch of salt 25g (1oz) ground almonds 125g (4 1/2oz) butter 60g (2oz) caster sugar, plus extra for sprinkling 1 egg yolk 150ml (10fl.oz) double cream 1tbsp caster sugar 250g (9oz) strawberries, 3 reserved and the remainder sliced

RECIPE QUEEN CAKES

(MAKES 10-12)

INGREDIENTS

METHOD

110g (4oz) soft margarine

Preheat the oven to 180C/350ÅF/ Gas Mark 4. Grease a 12-hole bun or mini bundt tin. Cream the margarine and sugar together. Add the eggs a little at a time, beating well. Fold the flour into the mixture with a little milk, if necessary, to give a soft dropping consistency. Add the fruit and mix well. Place spoonfuls of the mixture into the prepared tin. Bake for 15-20 minutes until firm to the touch and golden brown. Turn out on a wire rack to cool and sprinkle with a little extra caster sugar.

110g (4oz) caster sugar, plus extra for sprinkling 2 eggs, beaten 110g (4oz) self-raising flour, sieved A little milk, if necessary 60g (2oz) dried fruit

Variations: Use 60g (2oz) of washed, chopped glace cherries instead of the dried fruit, or replace 1 tablespoon of flour with 1 tablespoon of cocoa powder.

(MAKES 8)

RECIPE CHOCOLATE CARAMEL SLICES INGREDIENTS

METHOD

110g (4oz) butter or margarine

Preheat the oven to 160C/325F/Gas Mark 3. Grease an 18 cm (7 inch) square loose-bottomed tin. For the base, rub the butter or margarine into the flour, salt and sugar. Knead into a ball and then press out evenly into the prepared tin. Bake for 25 minutes. Leave to cool before adding the filling and topping. For the filling, slowly melt the margarine, syrup, sugar and condensed milk together, stirring continuously. Bring to the boil and, still stirring, simmer gently for exactly 7 minutes. Add the vanilla extract, pour on to the base and leave to cool. For the topping, melt the chocolate gently in a bowl over a pan of simmering water. Beat until it is smooth. Spread the chocolate evenly over the filling. When set, cut into nine squares and then cut each square in half again to make 18 slices.

140g (5oz) plain flour a pinch of salt 60g (2oz) caster sugar 110g (4oz) margarine 2tbsp golden syrup 110g (4oz) light brown soft sugar 1 small tin condensed milk A few drops of vanilla extract 110g (4oz) plain chocolate (70% cocoa), broken into pieces

(MAKES 18)

COOK’S TIP: If you don’t have a loosebottomed tin, line the tin with baking parchment. This makes it easier to remove the slices.

ECO-FRIENDLY HOT WATER SOLAR FINALLY A THING OF BEAUTY

Out with the old... Many people want to be environmentally friendly and do their bit whilst saving on their gas utility bills, but nobody wants a sun bed on their roof spoiling the look of their much loved home. World of Solar has partnered with Velux, the roof windows specialists, to come up a beautiful looking solution to the problem. For years the tube system has been the only real method of heat collectoring for gas solar energy on the market. However times are changing, with these new Velux inline collector systems you get no loss of efficiency whatsoever . The roof tiles are removed and the panels are fitted in line with your roof with a selection of Velux roof windows if you wish. The roof windows protrude only an inch or so above your roof line, rather than the old tube systems which sits on your roof. With the new Velux inline collectors your neighbours would never even know you had solar panels. In this time of recession we are all conscious of tightening our belts especially with the ever rising cost of gas. Our product has no need for planning permission or building regulations, which are required for the old tube system. The reason for this is because we are decreasing the load on

and in with the NEW your roof as oppsoe to increasing the load. The new inline solar panels also require no maintenance whatsoever as they self clean with rain,they have a fully backed 10 year guarantee from Velux who are an internationally recognised roof window and solar collector company. Noticeably the old tube system has swamped the UK market with hundreds of thousands coming in from China. The old tube system comes in just the one size, however our new inline panels come in a whole range of different sizes making it possible to custom design your whole package to suit the look of your roof. The complete system can be fitted in a day without any mess or fuss. To get full efficiency, south facing is preferred but it can also work on other elevations of your home. Our engineers call back to see you on your annual anniversary of installation to inspect your system and to check that it is in full working order. If you are considering a loft conversion or just upgrading your old boiler or even putting in an unvented system this is the ideal time to fit Velux solar . Velux solar panels are cheaper than the vacuuated solar tube system and work just as well as the tank system you may have in the

loft. We fit the cylinder back in your airing cupboard or in the loft space. Many rural homes that are totally dependant on oil, which is at an all time high, may want to consider switching to Velux solar as the perfect solution both in cost and efficency. Velux Solar panels can not be beaten on quality, looks and price. Our systems are fully installed at a 20%- 30% discount in cost to the nearest tube competitor, with no VAT to pay.

Q

• Hoe borders regularly to keep down weeds • Pinch out side shoots on tomatoes and start to feed outdoor tomatoes with Tomorite when the first truss has set

A

• Harvest early potatoes and salad crops • Position summer flowering containers and baskets outside • Cut lawns weekly and treat any weeds with Bayer Spot Lawn Weeder or Verdone. At the end of June you may need to boost your lawn with MiracleGro liquid feed • Continue to plant out summer bedding • Stake tall plants to protect from wind damage • Prune spring flowering shrubs and ornamental fruit trees • Protect all plants and crops from slugs – try using nematodes

Email gardendoctor@stewarts.co.uk I have a rose garden where many of the roses are over 15 years old. Some are still flowering quite well but I feel they need a boost. Should I replace all or are they young enough to go on flowering with the right treatment?

VOTED THE BEST PLACE TO BUY GARDENING PRODUCTS AND PLANTS IN THE SOUTH BY WHICH? MEMBERS

With roses there is often a problem with re-planting roses in beds where roses have been grown for ten years or more. It can induce Rose Replant disease. Basically roses are voracious feeders and exhaust the ground they live in. To successfully grow roses in old beds the soil generally needs replacing to a depth of 18 inches from another part of the garden that hasn’t had roses grown in them. Roses have been known to continue growing for much longer than 15 years and certainly with the right care they should not need replacing. So persevere with your existing roses. Feed them during the growing season (April to Sept) with Toprose or similar. Ensure they are well watered during periods of drought and treat accordingly for mildew or black spot. The replacements may not be faring well due to the replant issues and it is well worth using the mycorrhizal products such as Rootgrow when planting new ones as well as following above advice.

FIVE MINUTES WITH... JAMES MARTIN Tell us about red tractor's make it with mince challenge. The challenge is in its seventh year and I've been involved in it since its inception. It gets bigger and better every year. The rules haven't changed; the age parameters remain the same (11 to 16), but the competition has got bigger - we now have more than 1,000 kids entering it, which is great.

Have any of the previous winners gone on to have food-related careers? We're not looking for the next big chef, we're just looking to give kids an opportunity to cook and create. But two of the previous winners have gone on to study catering, so there have been some positive effects in that respect.

Is it the kind of contest you'd have enjoyed taking part in when you were younger? I did have the chance to cook for a function when I was 12; it was all about having an opportunity. But now, cooking isn't even on the curriculum in a lot of schools. Children are taught the genetic compound of an egg, but not really how to cook with it. This gives them an opportunity to create on their own.

You always seem so busy. How do you find the time to do something like this? It's been in the diary for quite a number of years, and it will continue to be in the diary for years to come. I've got the Good Food Show and the tour around the UK, so it's just one of those things you work around. I enjoy doing it, I've been enjoying doing it for seven years.

You recently returned to your home town of Malton in North Yorkshire to open a restaurant at the Talbot Hotel... I'm on my way back there now - I'm back in the kitchen tonight! It's great. It's early days yet, but certainly the response we've had has been great. I've got a couple of places now - one in Leeds and now one in Malton - so I've got to decide whether to return to Yorkshire full-time.

How did your TV work first come about? I got spotted when I was a young kid. I was in my early twenties and was head chef of a busy restaurant. I thought I'd give it a go, no harm done. Little did I know I'd still be doing it many years later! Sometimes things come along, and you've just got to jump on and enjoy the ride.

If you had to choose between your food career and TV, which would you go for? It'll always be food because that's where it all started and it's where it'll all end. The bits in between are just the tinsel - you've still got to be able to produce the goods.

a lot from â&#x20AC;&#x153; Ithelearn chefs who come

â&#x20AC;&#x153;

Chef James Martin is best known for hosting BBC One's Saturday Kitchen. He discusses about why he's backing a new campaign encouraging young cooks to create new dishes.

on Saturday Kitchen every week.

But I also learn a lot in my trade because I'm always travelling to different places, which makes me a better chef. Now it's about passing recipes and the things I've learned on to the next generation.

known, you can do it slowly. You're more in the public's gaze, put it that way.

We can't let you go without mentioning your appearance on strictly come dancing. Have you continued to dance? No - my knees are hurting now, I'm 40 this year! That was 2006, I was a young nipper then. It doesn't get any easier - doing the Paso Doble is like doing the service in a kitchen, your knees start to hurt after a while.

What else have you got coming up? I've just finished a cookbook that'll be out in October. I'd also like to do another take on Operation Hospital Food. I don't know whether TV will follow it or not, but we're trying to get a group of people together to hopefully push it forward. James Martin is the head judge of the Red Tractor beef and lamb Make It With Mince Challenge, which encourages young cooks aged 11 to 16 to create new dishes. For more information, visit: www.simplybeefandlamb.co.uk/ makeitwithmince

Presenting a live TV show such as Saturday Kitchen looks like hard work... It's not easy, especially now that we're looking for chefs further afield. You realise these people are your ex-bosses or your food heroes, so you're cooking with the likes of Pierre Koffman, Michel Roux Sr and Thomas Keller. It'd be nerve-wracking enough to cook with them in their own kitchen, but to do it on TV can be terrifying. People at home may not know who Thomas Keller is, but in the industry, he's one of the true legends.

Do have any ambitions left? I see every day as a new venture, as a test to try to be better at what I do. There will be things you do well on the way, and it's how you build on those that counts. Like life in general, really. In terms of the restaurants, I do it because I enjoy it, and I think if you enjoy it, maybe you do better at it. You certainly have more pressure on you when you're in the public eye. When you open a restaurant, you open straight away, whereas if you're not well

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.

ASK THE PROPERTY EXPERT In January 2011 I wrote about the young man from Latvia who gained entry into a 10 million pound empty property in London through an open bathroom window and began squatting. He then sent word to his friends in Latvia to come over and join him because according to him ‘Britain is one of the few countries where it is easy to do’. He also told a reporter ‘The law states…if there is any empty building which is not being used, you can put it to use in any way you see fit and what a shame to not get the most of this place’. The 10 million pound property in London reportedly boasted 10 bedrooms, four bathrooms and a swimming pool in the upmarket area of Highgate, where neighbours are millionaire bankers and celebrities. This brought outrage and a demand for a change in the law. In the last 13 years Britain has seen a spectacular rise in the number of people who have taken over empty properties. British law stated occupation of empty properties is a civil, not a criminal, matter in England and Wales, unless entry is forced. Police can act only if the squatters commit offences such as theft or criminal damage. Well, as of 1st September 2012, Landlords and second home owners can be give a cheer, because the law will change and it will now be classified as a criminal offence to take up residence of another person’s property without their permission. The squatters will also face up to a £5000 fine and a six month prison sentence. (perhaps now a start on Britain not being known as a ‘soft touch’, although one colleague recently said ‘prison would be another free home!’.) Although this new change is a welcome relief, it does not mean that squatting will be eradicated, it just means the new tougher measures will help landlords and homeowners avoid lengthy and costly legal battles.

MOTORING NEWS The latest news on all things motoring

ROAD TEST BMW 3 SERIES The BMW 3 Series has become a modern classic, widely regarded as the best-built and most stylish model in its sector and offering a hard-to-beat blend of performance, reliability and residual values. Over the years, the 3 Series has been revised many times and the latest saloon version is larger and more comfortable, yet still offers better fuel economy and lower emissions. Prices start at around £24,880 with the top-spec versions at around £37,000. My test model was the best-selling mid-range 320d Sport, costing £29,000 and laden with plenty of standard equipment including alloys, air-con, power windows and mirrors, auto lights and wipers, sports seats, cruise control, parking sensors, push-button start and a very useful head-up display which projects the driving speed onto the windscreen within eyeline for easy reading. All new 3 Series models feature Efficient Dynamics technologies including Stop-Start to help boost fuel economy. My test model had the 6-speed manual gearbox with sports and economy modes. An 8-speed auto box is also available. The outgoing 3 Series model was a great car but it did suffer from cramped rear seat legroom. The new car is 50mm longer and that has solved the problem. Rear seat accommodation is now excellent in terms of head and legroom. The new car is also a little wider and has a longer wheelbase which further improves handling and ride comfort, though on rough surfaces,

the standard-fit run-flat tyres do deliver harder ride quality. General handling is superb, more assured and more agile than before, and with sharper responses. Cabin design is impressive, with a modern but still classy look and with the central console controls located high up for easy use. The driving position is excellent, and underway, the steering feedback is precise, the gearshift slick making driving a real pleasure. The 2.0 diesel engine has 181 hp on tap, a top speed is 146 mph and the 0-60 mph time is quick at 7.7 seconds. However, despite that potent performance, the combined fuel figure is 61.4 mpg, quite outstanding. Without effort in mixed driving I got 53 mpg. Emissions are also impressive, in fact lowest in the class at 120 k/gm. This new 3-series has a longer lower more sleeker profile and the body-styling sculpture gives it an elegant yet potent appearance. With its extra interior space, and more stylish cabin this latest version should not only please the company’s loyal customer base but attract some new converts to the marque. FOR: BMW badge kudos, superior build-quality, strong residual values, improved equipment levels, excellent blend of performance and economy. AGAINST: The black upholstery and black headlining in my test model made the interior seem like a coalbunker!

TOP 10 BEST SELLER FIAT 500

The enduring popularity of the Fiat 500 is underlined by the release of official figures which show the iconic city car has forced its way back into the overall Top 10 new car registrations list more than four years after its UK introduction. Private registrations grew by 14.8 per cent in April, and are one of the reasons for a general increase in new car sales, according to the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders. Some 2,600 Fiat 500s were sold in the UK last month, putting it in 10th place in the Best Sellers list. The result helped Fiat to a total of 3675 sales for the month, up almost 25 per cent on the figure of 2941 for the same period in 2011. Year to date sales of 16,734 are up 9.5 per cent on last year. “It is wonderful to see the Fiat 500 in the Top 10 again, proving what a great success story this remarkable car has been,” says Elena Bernardelli, marketing director, Fiat Group Automobiles UK. “It has always caught the British public’s imagination, and our continuing improvements and new ideas, such as the 500C convertible, TwinAir technology, special style editions, and sub-100g/km CO2 levels for further environmental benefits, all go towards keeping the 500 among the best sellers.” Available with a choice oflow emissions Euro 5 engines: 85 bhp 0.9-litre TwinAir, 69 bhp 1.2-litre and 95 bhp 1.3-litre MultiJet turbodiesel, the Fiat 500 has a starting price of £9,960for the 1.2 Pop.

UNINSURED CARS WARNING The latest figures from vehicle information expert HPI suggest that it is drivers of midrange higher volume vehicles, often the popular Vauxhall, Ford and Volkswagen models, which continue to be the greatest offenders of insurance evasion. However, a staggering number of offenders in 2011 were drivers of prestige, high value vehicles, including five Ferraris, two worth £151,000 and £115,000 each, an Audi R8, a Bentley and a number of Lamborghinis. Nearly 1 in 10 of the 60,000 uninsured cars seized by the police in 2011 and checked with HPI CrushWatch, had outstanding finance recorded against them. Working in partnership with the Finance & Leasing Association (FLA), HPI created HPI CrushWatch in direct response to the FLA’s

initiative to clamp down on uninsured drivers. The scheme brings together motor lenders and police to reclaim illegal cars, rather than having the vehicles scrapped.

“There are an estimated 1.4 million uninsured motorists on the UK roads, illustrating the threat facing law abiding road users and the finance providers who own the offending cars,” comments Daniel Burgess, Managing Director for HPI. “In 2011 HPI CrushWatch alerted finance companies to the seizure of over £31 million worth

of vehicles they owned, thereby protecting their assets from the crusher. It’s very interesting to learn how many of these vehicles are being driven by people the majority of us would consider to be in a position to afford insurance, yet have been caught persistently avoiding paying premiums.” Forty-three of the UK’s 52 police forces actively use HPI CrushWatch, illustrating its effectiveness in the clampdown against insurance evaders. HPI’s 2011 figures show that West Yorkshire, Strathclyde and Merseyside police forces have notched up the highest total value of seized cars, indicating these regions have the greatest number of insurance offenders on their roads, followed closely by Hertfordshire and Lancashire.

TOYOTA YARIS

148

Toyota’ s popular Yaris had a major re-vamp not too long ago and the new version is larger, more sleek, more economical. It also benefits from sharper styling to help boost appeal to younger buyers. It is available as 68hp 1.0-litre and 98hp 1.33-litre petrol units and an 89hp 1.4-litre diesel. There are four trim levels: T2, TR, SR and T Spirit, and prices start at around £10,000 with flagship versions at £15,755. I recently sampled the mid-range 1.3 SR version at £13,585. Standard equipment includes power front windows and mirrors, air-con, radio/ CD player, reversing camera, Bluetooth, multiairbags, vehicle stability control, remote door locking and 16-inch alloy wheels. The new Yaris certainly does have more kerb appeal and a more youthful image, and it also offers more practicality – it is longer, has more interior space especially for rear seat passengers, and a useful 285-litre boot space. In the past, the typical age of a Yaris buyer has been around 60, but this new version should lower that quite significantly due to to its cool looks and improved driving fluency. A new suspension set-up also adds to the Yaris package, Previously, ride quality was not that good, but the latest version addresses that with a more compliant and more comfortable riide, and more precise handling. The 1.3-litre petrol engine on my test model was perky in most driving situations though on long hills you do need to shift the gears rather more. Top speed is 109 mph and 0-60 mph is 11.7 seconds. Fuel economy is very good – 51.4 mpg combined. Overall, new Yaris impresses and its value for money package will win over many who check in out. The big plus-point is its styling make-over which gives a cooler image and a much broader sales base.

NISSAN MICRA

Many of you might be surprised to learn that the Micra name has been around since the early 1980s and has been a great seller for Nissan. In its latest guise it has a much wider appeal and comes across as a very attractive package. Priced from £9,750 there are several trim levels and a single 1.2 litre 3-cylinder petrol engine in two power outputs. There is either a standard 5-speed manual transmission or a CVT automatic style gearbox. Standard fare across the range includes items such as remote locking, power front windows, electric power steering, six airbags and a CD audio system with Bluetooth and MP3 connectivity. At the top end of the range the equipment is boosted by climate control, rain sensing wipers, automatic headlights, panoramic glass roof and a host of other features. The flagship Tekna model starts from £12,750. The latest Micra is rather understated and less quirky in style than the previous model the Micra’s appeal has increased. Its city car size is also maintained to attract small car buyers. Add to this the frugal 1.2 litre engine, 5-door body style and a simple equipment structure and the

Micra’s attraction becomes very evident. On the road the 1.2 litre 3-cylinder engine gives a commendably smooth and refined performance. The standard 5-speed manual gearbox has well chosen ratios that extract the best in terms of performance and economy from the three cylinder power unit. I returned a creditable average of 52 mpg and despite a rather leisurely 13.7 seconds to reach 60 mph the Micra rarely feels as if its struggling with only an occasional stirring of the gears required to boost speed. DIG-S versions also come with Stop-Start technology that operates quietly and smoothly to save fuel and reduce emissions. Inside, the seating is comfortable and the leg and headroom very good. The Micra will comfortably swallow the weekly shop in its boot with the potential for larger loads by lowering the back seats. The new Micra has become a mainstream, grown-up city car with good levels of equipment and economic running costs. Being a Nissan it also has virtually guaranteed reliability.

BEACH READY BODY

Owner of Chic Beauty Salon & Chic Academy, Sophie Tamagna shares her 5 top tips to gain a beach ready body

THE 5 BODY PERFECTORS The thought of unveiling yourself in a bikini can leave us feeling cold. Cellulite, uneven skin tone and pasty legs are just a few common concerns for most women! Whereas once all we had at our disposal was body cream and the odd body scrub the UK beauty industry now offers us a wealth of products and treatments to help us ditch that sarong! But do they live up to their expectations? Below are my 5 top tips to gain a beach ready body.

1

Although many of us still favour manual massage, the results achieved by G5 are impressive. A deep vibratory massage method, G5 eases fluid retention – a cause of cellulite. To maximise its silhouette refining results a course of 6 treatments is recommended. From (£15 per 15 minutes)

59% of women apply Fake Tan 5 times a month or more!

3

Create instantly better looking legs with ST Tropez Perfect Legs Spray (rrp £9.99) As soon as this product was launched it was flying off the shelves - this lightweight 360 degrees aerosol spray gives instant colour and an airbrushed finish whilst building a natural long-lasting self-tan, for naturally tanned perfect legs.

5

Every pre-holiday checklist should include an in salon spray tan for the ultimate professional all over tan. Compete in around 30 minutes a spray tan will boost your confidence around the pool! I recommend St Tropez Airbrush Tan for the most natural bronzed look. (From £28.00)

The current UK Self-Tanning market is worth over

£100 MILLION SHELLAC ATTACK!

2

Nourish your skin with Dermalogica’s Ultrarich Body Cream(rrp £37.50, 473ml) is an ultra-rich, long-lasting body cream designed to help heal and relieve extra dry skin. Fortified with Dermalogica’s Environmental Protection Complex of Glycolipids and Vitamin E to help restore and enhance the barrier function of skin, reducing moisture loss while combating free radical damage.

4

Since launching 12 months ago Shellac had taken the UK Beauty Industry by storm, becoming one of the most requested beauty treatments. A nail polish that can last up to 14 days, does not chip, dries instantly – clearly we can see its appeal! A Shellac nail treatment starts from £25. Dermalogicas Ultimate Buffing Cloth (rrp £12.00) This tough buffer shifts dead skin cells and energises the microcirculation giving the body fresh clarity and glow. Its handy size enables you to reach all areas!

MARATHON SUCCESS

EXTREME FITNESS EVENTS

This week Emma Hinchliffe, recently converted marathon runner, talks about her success at Bournemouth Fit Body Bootcamp. “I have been running for many years now. Not fast, or anything like that, just enough to plod along. In fact you could really call me a plodder instead of a runner. I arrived in Bournemouth in April last year and entered into a few half marathons and a marathon. My results were far from perfect, 2:30 for a half. Then I met Spencer and joined Bournemouth Fit Body Bootcamp. Shortly after joining I did a very disappointing 5:10 for the Dublin marathon. However after a few months of really tough training my times started to come down. I ran the Bournemouth Bay Half this year in under 2 hours. Have never run a sub 2 hour half marathon ever! Then last month I ran the Worcester marathon in 4:32. I have never ever had that kind of time before. Next weekend will be running the Edinburgh marathon and thanks to Spencer’s  training I know I will be running faster and stronger than ever before..

These days extreme fitness events seem to be all the rage, completing a course of around 10K where you crawl under barb wire, run through waist deep freezing cold water, climb obstacles, jump over old cars and crawl through them aswell and so on and so on. To me, events like this are much more enjoyable, varied and therefore more motivating than anything else out there so personally I think they are a no brainer. The thought of running on the road for 10 miles, 13 miles or even 26 miles just doesn’t float my boat. But something like this is going to be fun. Like everything in life there are risk factors, Just be prepared to sign a ‘death waiver’ before participating! But judging by the amount of people taking part these extreme fitness events are here to stay. A couple of good ones are the Kamikaze www.votwo.co.uk, the Tough Mudder www. toughmudder.com and the tough guy www. toughguy.co.uk

THE KETTLEBELL

A traditional Russian cast iron weight that is shaped like a cannon ball with a handle; Essentially a Russian dumbbell. This piece of equipment has been used for centuries for strength and conditioning, however it was originally used by traders as a form of weighing stuff when making a trade, the men became quite competitive at who could lift the heaviest weight quite quickly and it developed from there. By their nature, typical kettlebell exercises build strength and endurance, particularly in the lower back, legs, and shoulders, and increase grip strength. The basic movements are the swing, clean and press, snatch and the Turkish Get up. These exercises are great for building entire body strength and very effective at burning fat. The Swing in particular works the posterior chain which is your buttocks, hamstring and lower back as well as shoulders. Kettlebell exercises are in their nature holistic; therefore they work several muscles simultaneously and may be repeated continuously for several minutes or with short breaks. Kettlebells can be used as part of a High Intensity Training Programme! Fit Body Bootcamp will be starting a 6 week Kettlebell programme shortly - if you are up for this please email:coach@ bournemouthfitbodybootcamp.com

TRAINING TIPS: 1. 2.

3. 4. 5. 6.

Set your goals out clearly and work towards them Vary your training, shorts bursts of High Intensity Activity like sprints, as well as steady aerobic work and functional bodyweight exercises like squats and bench press. Also work on your flexibility. Start the race at a steady pace and finish as strong as you can. Have the correct nutrition plan to hand - seek advice. Believe in yourself - If you say you can.......you can, if you say you can't you can't Be accountable - tell trusted people in your life exactly what your plans are, this is all the motivation you need!

THE WORLD ACCORDING TO GEOFF

On Sunday 20 May there were two unconnected incidents which should send a chill of dreaded expectation through every UK domicile that craves a majestic and awe inspiring London Olympics. The Gold award focuses on the Olympic flame, that in ancient legend commemorated the theft of fire from the Greek god Zeus by Prometheus, and with solemn pageantry was delivered into our guardianship in the grandeur of the marble Athens Panathenaic stadium, watched over by 11 vestal virgins. The next landmark occasion involved this enduring beacon of world unity and hope coming to grief up Devon’s Great Torrington High Street. Designed and tested at BMW’s climatic centre in Munich and avowed to function at high altitudes, sub-zero temperatures and gale force winds the torch was brought to it’s knees by an unseasonal gust fetching up around the corner of the Torrington Mini Mart. The Silver presentation: imagine the spectacle as the centre of Manchester is embellished with a specially constructed sprint strip which attracts the women’s Olympic and world champions to vie with our own Jessica Ennis in the 100m hurdles. Thrill with the hordes of onlookers as these goliaths give no quarter in their pursuit of fleeting glory and soar with patriotic jubilation as our Jess swoops down on the tape in a personal best time of 12.75 seconds. Then conjure up a vision of some anorak actually bothering to count up the number of hurdles used and then tediously pointing out that it should unquestionably be 10 rather than 9 hurdles. Really, if we are going to be pulled up every time we make a silly mis-count or forget to put sand in the long jump pit we should rethink our bid. However, our nation’s deep-rooted aptitude for peculiar conduct must collectively bow to one Barry Larkin, an Australian veterinary science student who nipped unseen out of the crowd bearing aloft a tin can, which had previously been host to a plum pudding, but was now inhabited by a pair of flaming underpants. This un-godly vestibule had been lashed to a chair leg and was now the subject of un-diluted exaltation by 30,000 Sydneyites, the whole tapestry made even more farcical by the police escort which had surrounded him to ensure order. He actually made it all the way to the Town Hall where the solemn ritual of the passing of the incendiary ‘Y’ fronts took place in front of a beaming Mayor. With the scurrilous wheeze still undetected he slipped back into the cheering multitude and straight into student folklore. Should you be thinking that all this apprehension is misguided can I just take you back to the 2008 closing ceremony in Beijing. Our harebrained response to the most lavish and technically accomplished closing ceremony ever bestowed on the Olympic movement concerned the following sequence of high farce: Boris Johnson on a bike pursuing a London bus around the track/prancing people at bus stop wearing jackanory castoffs and waving umbrellas/prancing people trampling their fellow travellers underfoot in an hysterical attempt at boarding bus/top deck of bus peels open in conspicuously laboured instalments to reveal a string quartet serenading David Beckham as he hoofs a football into the rafters of the Birds nest/ in a separate part of the top deck, in a seemingly unconnected offering, Jimmy Page is accompanying Leona Lewis in a re-working of ‘Maybe it’s because I’m a Londoner’. Even as I write this news has reached me that the Day 5 torch cavalcade made a directional blunder before crossing the Clifton suspension bridge and disappeared into the hinterland. After a wait of 20 minutes the organisers announced that the torch had been spotted on the day 37 route and that the remainder of day 5 had now been tacked on to the day 22 route Glasgow to Inverness. 158
