July is here but the summer still hasn't quite arrived. Don't seem to be able to put the coats and umbrellas away and my bikini certainly hasn't made an appearance. In a way it gives us a little more time to work on the beach bodies, ready for when the Sun does decide to make an appearance. Spencer Cuckney P156 has some great fitness tips in this issue to help us on the way. For the foodies we have some delicious Italian recipes on P70 And our selection of the our favourite restaurants in the area in our ' We Love' guide P159. There are also our 'Your

Meal Ticket' discount vouchers P158 for those watching the pennies. Best of all we have an interview P54 with the wonderfully fiery and rather yummy Chef, Marco Pierre White ...and a quick reminder that next issue on 16th July is our bumper Summer Special, so make sure you pick up a copy. Its packed full of summer holiday activities and competitions.

Please recycle this magazine when you have finished with this copy.

SUMMER LOOKS BRIGHT FOR HOME OWNERS

6

Award winning estate agency Connells in Poole is urging local home owners to seize the opportunity of a sale this summer. According to the branch team, Connells is seeing more buyers, more offers on properties and more sales compared to last year. Because of increased activity across the local housing market, Connells is advising homeowners who wish to move this summer to get in touch. In May alone, its estate agency network recorded

a 7.2 per cent increase in buyers looking to purchase a home. This has fuelled a 7.3 per cent increase in offers and a 4.5 per cent increase in sales across Connells’ branches. “Now is a great time to put your property on the market and secure a buyer,” says Scott Sowter, Branch Manager for Connells. “Not only are there lots of committed buyers actively seeking to purchase a home, but better weather

and longer daylight hours enable homeowners to show off their properties to their maximum potential. “This is especially true for properties with gardens as flowers will be in full bloom so a seller can make their property look its absolute best,” Scott continues. If you are interested in moving home and would like to book a free market appraisal of your property, please contact Connells on 01202 673977 or email: poole@connells.co.uk

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

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

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

PRODUCT OF THE WEEK:

BIG AL’S TOP TIP:

HEDGEHOG GUTTER BRUSH

Q

HOW DO I CLEAR A BLOCKED DOWNPIPE?

A

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

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

NEW BRANCH MANAGER KATIE FOX OF ASPRAY ESTATE AGENTS Get to know Katie Fox your local branch manager at Aspray Estate Agents Lower Parkstone.

1. So tell us Katie about the “new” Aspray? Well, to cut a long story short, Key Drummond Estate Agents of Canford Cliffs have recently acquired this office from Andrew Cole who has run the company since 1994. Key Drummond have three other branches in Canford Cliffs, Lilliput and Scott Baines in Oakdale. Its a very exciting venture for both myself and the company and I am whole heartedly enthused to be given this opportunity to run this office.

6. obviously our priority is to sell the property but to a degree we are also selling the location. I am passionate about property & very much pride myself on customer care. I genuinely want my customer beit buyer or seller to have a positive experience and return to our company should they need future assistance, so it is important to me that they feel their experience has been as smooth as possible. Buying or selling a house can be a stressful time and I feel it is our job as agents to alleviate a majority of the pressures. 4.

2. You have now been with the company for a month, how has this month been?

What type of market/ properties do you as a firm deal with?

Well we have already agreed several sales and gained many valued instructions, so we really have got off to a flying start, giving us great confidence in not only our brand but the market!

We are lucky enough to have a large spectrum of properties anything from one bedroom flats to large family sized houses. This in turn we are finding has attracted a large number of buyers through our door as we feel we have something to offer every type of buyer.

3.

5.

What is your background in agency, your area?

Why do you think a seller should choose you over other local agencies?

So Katie, a little bit about you outside of agency? I am very fortunate to have a loving & supportive husband whom I’ve been with for over 13 years, we will have been married 6 years this August and we share our world with our beautiful daughter Isabella who is 20 months. So I do really have the best of both worlds a family I adore and a job that I love. Being local ourselves, we often frequent the areas beaches or parks so I often bump into my customers on family outings which is always nice and keeps a personal touch, we live in a community area after all. 7. What can we expect from Aspray? We have so many exciting plans ahead, so you will have to watch this space. We will be mainly focusing on our office, websites & branding. 8. To conclude......

I have locally worked in agency for the last 12 years, over which time as you can imagine I have gained a wealth of knowledge and experience of the property market. I grew up in Lilliput so know the local area, schools, amenities and transport services through and through which I personally feel is paramount to being an agent. After all we deal with many ‘out of town’ buyers looking to either relocate or buy a retreat on the coast, so whilst

Not only are we a long established firm (1982) but what the merge means is that we now have the ability to multi-list to all other offices Key Drummond in Canford Cliffs, Key Drummond in Lilliput and Scott Baines in Oakdale. This area coverage is unique to most other agents, ensuring our sellers get the best coverage across BH14, BH13 and BH15 and surrounding areas yet still retaining the one to one personal element of an independent branch.

If you want a professional experienced honest agent to sell your property, please contact me as your valued business is very much welcomed.

To contact Katie call 01202 732321 or visit www.asprayestateagents.com katie@asprayestateagents.com

DORSET CHARITY APPEALS FOR FOOD FESTIVAL VOLUNTEERS

SWANAGE CARNIVAL 28TH JULY - 4TH AUGUST

Representatives of Diverse Abilities Plus, a local disability charity which supports families in the West Dorset region including Dorchester, Weymouth, Bridport and surrounding areas, are appealing for volunteers to assist them at this year’s Dorset Seafood Festival, in Weymouth, on Saturday 7 and Sunday 8 July. The fifth annual Dorset Seafood Festival, to be held on Weymouth’s Georgian seafront, will feature over 80 stalls, demonstrations from celebrity chefs, culinary competitions, local ales and the finest local seafood. Volunteers who offer to support Diverse Abilities Plus at the event will be asked to help man the charity’s stand, sell the charity’s cookbook Scrumptious Home Baking, hand out cake samples and sell snacks and refreshments. The event will help to raise the charity’s profile while money raised through these activities will go towards supporting the charity’s vital work across the region. Diverse Abilities Plus is the only Dorset disability charity that supports children and adults, and their families,

“Going for Carnival Gold” will be an epic 8 day spectacular of music, games, competitions and enjoyment for all the family. Every year this Festival is a spectacle like no other and Swanage Carnival 2012 is the The Gold Medal Event to beat them all! With over 100 events throughout the 8 days, there’s something for everyone and all ages to enjoy! Get your feet stomping at the largest free music event on the South Coast with live music every evening and watch three truly wonderful award winning Firework Displays over Swanage Bay. Titan the Robot always steals the show, but look out for a Go Kart Grand Prix, Talent Contest, Dog Show, Masquerade Night, Car Boot Sale, Wheelbarrow Race and many, many more events... Marvel at the world-famous RED ARROWS AEROBATIC TEAM with their amazing display on SUNDAY, 29th JULY at 1pm. Listen for the awe inspiring roar of the jets and watch a truly incredible spectacle, followed at 3pm by one of the UK’s GREATEST CARNIVAL PROCESSIONS!

throughout their life. In West Dorset it supports children through its Coping with Chaos Play Opportunities service. The service provides short breaks for families with children with a wide range of disabilities and learning difficulties, which in turn support the whole family – parents and siblings. Ashley Weedon from Diverse Abilities Plus said: “We would be extremely grateful for willing volunteers to come forward and offer their time and support during the weekend-long Dorset Food Festival. Whether helping for a few hours or the entire weekend, the volunteers will be helping to raise awareness and funds for the charity. She continued: “We are often told that our service in the West Dorset region is invaluable, and by having a presence at the event we are able to raise our profile which in turn will help us to reach out to even more families in this area that desperately need our support.” Amelia Coffen from Church Knowle, near Corfe Castle, has a son with Angelman Syndrome and epilepsy. Her son, Samuel, cannot

talk, has severe learning difficulties, sleep and behavioural problems, and walks unstably. He therefore needs assistance and attends the Coping with Chaos Play Opportunities service in Weymouth. Amelia said: “The school sessions are great for my son as the environment is safe, stimulating and familiar, and this is exactly what Samuel needs. It also provides me with a break from the intense care and attention I give Samuel dayto-day, as well as getting the rare chance of meeting other families coping with similar conditions. It also gives me a chance to spend some quality time with my other son, Willoughby, as it is often very difficult to give him the attention he needs, due to the amount of time I have to spend with Samuel.” If you would like to help raise the profile of Diverse Abilities Plus and volunteer at the Dorset Food Festival please call Ashley Weedon at the charity on 01202 718266. For more information about Diverse Abilities Plus please visit the stand at the event or visit the website www. diverseabilitiesplus.org.uk.

BOURNECOAST NUMBER ONE AGAIN

INSIDE OUT DORSET

DORSET Property Agents Bournecoast are delighted that they have again reached the number one position in Rightmove’s rankings against their competitors. They have attained 1st out of the 75 agents over the last month for available properties listed by their Lettings department. This has put them firmly ahead of the nationals who also operate in the area. The last time they reached the dizzy heights of the top of the table was in January earlier this year, which was due in part to the incredibly successful launch of their new Westbourne office seeing an influx of new instructions registered by the residential lettings team. This latest achievement has come about as Bournecoast

Inside Out Dorset will return in 2012, with extraordinary events in extraordinary places across Dorset, Bournemouth and Poole. The festival takes place in different outdoor sites, rural and urban, over 10 days, starting on 31 August and finishing on 9 September. In 2007 Inside Out was the largest free festival of outdoor performance South West England had ever seen. The ten events that transformed locations across Dorset, Bournemouth and Poole drew over 30,000 people, not including those who took part in education

are so successful at attracting new landlords, not least because they have let a large volume of stock to good quality tenants. The tenants have to go through a rigorous vetting process by Bournecoast’s experienced in-house referencing team which, at the end of last year saw the lettings department deal with an astonishing 125 properties, bucking the trend of what is historically renowned as a largely subdued period for the rental market. Lettings Negotiator, Chris Barton said: “Bournecoast holds its brand values dear and is therefore passionate about the service it provides to landlords and tenants. “These latest Rightmove statistics go to prove that we seem to be getting it right

when it comes to building relationships with our clients and nurturing the trust that is consequently invested in us. He added, “The further good news is that we are now releasing all our winter stock which will be available from September on flexible contracts for 3-8 months in sought after locations across the area.” If you’re looking for a local, independent property agent that has been established for over 50 years, is proud of its family heritage and is part of the NAEA and ARLA with qualified staff, than contact Bournecoast for free, impartial advice or for an analysis of the return you can expect from your property, on 01202 437888 or visit : www.bournecoast.co.uk.

outreach work that ran alongside the performance programme. The festival far exceeded expectations, with excellent national coverage. High quality performances by nationally and internationally recognised artists. The programme for 2012 is a mix of national and international companies, light and darker moods, a range of site related performances. The style and content of performances are suitable for everyone, events are generally free and always accessible. www.insideoutdorset.co.uk

Your Own

A built-in bench makes efficient use of space and provides storage. The seat pad and scatter cushions provide colour and interest in a white room.


Although the wall looks as though it's decorated with a collection of retro postcards and botanical prints, it is, in fact, a wallpaper. Two large cushions covered in lush green, eye-catching fabric give the scheme a focal point.

Prince Charles has revealed he’s a member of the make-do-and-mend generation and recently had his old bathroom curtains turned into cushions. But it’s not just about saving money - crafting, recycling and hand-made personal touches can also result in a beautifully individual home. Gabrielle Fagan finds out how to create homespun style. Are you seeking a new style for your home that’s economical, charming and has the royal seal of approval? Look no further than homespun style. Rooms brimming with home-made pieces and individual touches, from restored flea market finds to one-off treasures, as well as recycled fabrics rich with colour and pattern are rapidly finding favour in our cash-strapped times. Even Prince Charles recently revealed that he’s a member of the ‘make do and mend’ generation and that he’s had his old bathroom curtains turned into cushions. While he didn’t personally carry out the transformation, our future king insists it is the principle of recycling and re-using household items which would otherwise be thrown away that matters.“I hate throwing things away. I’m always trying to find ways of re-using things,” he says. The universal appeal of a homespun interior - for palaces or more modest mansions - doesn’t surprise Joanna Simmons who, with interiors stylist Selina Lake, has put together essential guide Homespun Style. “This is a look for those who believe that homes should be an expression of our tastes, travels and experiences, and it’s welcoming, warm and unpretentious,” she says. “Best of all, homespun style throws out the interiors rule book and allows us to enjoy and experiment with colours, textiles and eye-catching displays.” She believes its growing popularity is due in part to the current tough economic times. “If you’ve bought an inexpensive junk store piece and turned it into something lovely with a pot of paint, you may wonder why you ever

bought new flat-pack furniture at all,” she says. Also, she points out, there’s probably something emotional behind our rediscovered love of craft, one of its key ingredients. “Most of us watched our mothers or grandmothers knitting or sewing when we were little. We may have hand-made sweaters, or snuggled up under a blanket they had crocheted,” she says.

“People cared for their possessions in a time before the disposable throwaway culture we know today” It is this respect for our home and its ingredients that we are all reconnecting with now.“The homespun look relies on home-made touches. So if you want to inject personality into your home, there’s no better way than with a piece that you’ve decorated, adapted or even made. “Whether you’re sticking on a sequin or trimming a curtain, modern craft will make your home unique, bursting with colour, pattern and energy.”

GETTING STARTED Make a collection of materials, from fabric remnants to old rolls of wallpaper and unusual buttons. Keep them on display and they’ll provide inspiration and a decorative touch. “Take things slowly and think about your scheme while the homespun look is relaxed, it’s not chaotic. It takes a little planning,” says Simmons.

“Be imaginative and try your hand at home-made touches. Anyone can stitch buttons onto a cushion cover to give it a fresh look. Anyone can give an old chair a bright coat of fresh paint. “It’s about getting stuck in, rediscovering the pleasure of working with your hands and rethinking how you decorate your home.” Homespun tips: If you’re inspired to get crafting, consider enrolling on a course at craft workshops in your area. If you don’t want to make things yourself, head to local craft fairs and markets and check out folksy.com and www.etsy.com where makers sell their wares.

FUN WITH FABRICS Textiles are at the heart of the homespun home because they combine colour, pattern and tactile appeal.“Textiles have the power to transform even the plainest neutral shell into a colourful and welcoming space,” says Simmons. “They give you something to snuggle up against, injecting some soft, tactile sensuality into a room.”Source second-hand textiles from markets, eBay or perhaps from oddments saved by friends and relatives, she suggests. “Remember, when it comes to choosing the right textiles, there are no rules. Have fun mixing fabrics in different shades and styles. Juxtapose tiny flower prints with big blowsy patterns. Team spots with stripes, and work in lush textures and fun details like pompoms or sequins too.” Homespun tips: If you have an assortment of small remnants then patchwork designs are a delightful option and can be made into cushion covers or bedspreads. A mat can make a wall hanging and the humblest curtain can be cut to make a cover for a tiredout table, and will impress if it’s topped off with toughened glass. 43


FURNITURE FINDS Second-hand furniture is central to the homespun look, says Simmons. “It’s both creative and inexpensive to customise a chair seat or paint a wooden table, and it will give your home unique Sew easypersonality,” she says. “When collecting pieces, Beautiful,don’t quality cantobe hugelyfrom expensive limitfabrics yourself furniture one era or in but ends one of lines, odd rolls samples offerwith a more material.

LIVING THE LOOK

Most homespun living spaces focus purely on relaxation - they’re somewhere to chat, read or spend time on a hobby. “This is the one public room dedicated to downtime. Soft textures, warm colours and a sinkinto sofa will create a friendly feel,” says Simmons. “Generally, homespun living rooms carry colour and pattern on soft furnishings, textiles and painted furniture, preferring neutral walls as a backdrop. “This makes decorating simple and is kind to your wallet too. Forget colour from expensive paint ranges, when a basic pot of white will do.” For the enhancing colour palette she suggests taking inspiration from the bright, simple colours reminiscent of childhood paintboxes. “Sunshine yellow, sea blue, tomato red and darkest green are strong tones but when teamed with plenty of calming white they can be invigorating and interesting to live with.” Homespun tips: The floor, the second largest surface in any room after the walls, needs careful thought. Solid wood flooring teamed with soft rugs is a great option. If a space lacks interesting features, reclaimed pieces will bring their own charm and character. “Visit a salvage yard for a striking period door, fire surround or salvaged wooden flooring to add instant warmth and homespun character,” says Simmons. Family photos look decorative when framed and hung on a wall, and white frames give the arrangement cohesion.

THE WORLD ACCORDING TO GEOFF

In the last issue I made mention of my time spent as a craft worker during the decade of excess which was the 80’s, and whilst I do ponder that perhaps the humour won’t transfer beyond the boundaries of the craft circuit and the people who inhabited it, I do hope that these random recollections may conjure up a smile. There were two separate battle groups, the ‘Organiser’ and the ‘Craftworker’ and here I will concentrate on the former. Although they are legion, space will only permit me to regale you with two of them. The first one was Anthony James a comically pompous opera singer who whilst working at the Fairfield Halls in Croydon had by some curious turn of events got involved in organising their in-house craft shows. These proved to be wildly successful and in an ensuing moment of clinical insanity he resolved to launch a dual career. It was possibly whilst warbling through ’Cosi Fan Tutte’ in Chipping Sodbury that he hatched his masterplan to employ Jack Cohen’s ’Tesco’ mantra of ’stack em high and sell em cheap’. History will recall that this philosophy did not transfer well and that the avalanche of weekly craft shows whose advertising budget encompassed a microscopic advert in the appropriate local bugle and a sign tucked behind a rhododendron bush on the ring road was from the outset circling the drain. This inevitably led to the same grim spectacle being played out each week whereby Anthony would be slandered by a murderous huddle of disenchanted craftworkers who held him solely responsible for a weekend of broken dreams. Well acquainted with the initial rumblings of mutiny Anthony could always be relied upon to dip into his treasure trove of mitigating circumstances for the abject attendance figures dispensing them with sympathetic overtures until the outrage of the mob had been quelled. Momentous televised sporting events, nearby road works or an outbreak of foot and mouth were popular themes, however should there remain a persistent core of discontents amongst his flock he would play his nap hand ’The Utilities Banker’. Falling back on his theatrical training he would puff himself up and pronounce in his gravest tone that had we all forgotten that the quarterly gas bills had just gone out rendering the entire local populace potless. There was however a man who stood aloof from such lurid squabbling and this was Henri More, a glove salesman from Guildford. I first met Henri at a calamitous debacle in a stately home somewhere in Surrey where he was selling his fine handmade basket ware. He was an engaging and amusing companion who exuded an old world charm as he perched in the middle of his stand exchanging dignified and gentle banter with the 13 people who visited us that weekend. It was therefore with some dismay that some time later I received an invitation to participate in a few craft fairs he was organising. For a man whose comfort zone would have been as an extra in a BBC adaptation of Jane Austen the spectre of him focusing his suspect talents on such a venture was indeed a hideous prospect. However there I was at 7.30 am at The Lakeside Country Club in Frimley anticipating the pantomime that would surely follow. As any craft worker would acknowledge this pre-show opening ritual is not for the faint hearted, there are the wonky table switching manoeuvres, a share of a 13 amp socket to be claimed and valuable display inches to be furtively stolen from the adjoining plot. With awful predictability the fates conspired against him, the table swapping game had to be put back indefinitely as the hired tables had entered into the spirit of the enterprise and gone to the wrong location, with no centre aisle tables the contestants in the 25 metre dash for the wall sockets were still under starters orders and Henri’s hapless supervision over the laying of the temporary floor covering now resembled the setting for a not terribly challenging carpeted hill walk. Henri’s time in gloves had not really given him the tools to deal with the events unfolding before him and I can still see the look of pitiful bewilderment etched into his face as he stood valiantly before the mutinous mob gathering around him. 1

MARCO INSISTS ON DOUBLE STANDARDS


Marco Pierre White’s Kitchen Wars continues on Channel 5 on Thursdays. The famously fiery restaurateur tells us how he sorted through hundreds of couples to find the country’s top restaurant-owning duo, what most annoys him when eating out, and why he’d never consider himself a celebrity chef. With a tongue as sharp as the knives he wields, Marco Pierre White is known for being uncompromising in the kitchen. But the former enfant terrible of the UK restaurant scene reveals a slightly more caring side in his new series. In Kitchen Wars, the Leeds-born chef takes his mobile “battle kitchen” around the country and invites restaurant-running duos to show him what they’re made of in a bid to find the best team. “When I started out many years ago, a lot of the best restaurants were run by couples,” he explains against a backdrop of the deep red walls of his restaurant, Wheeler’s of St James’s. The pairs in the series range from husband-and-wife teams to family and best friends.

“There’s raw emotion and they’re not scared of saying what they think. They seem to forget about the cameras, so you see real life,” Those who manage to impress him will earn a place in a specially designed restaurant where three kitchens will feed three sets of dinners. Along the way, he has to break the bad news to dozens of couples that they haven’t made the cut, because seeing them crumble under the pressure of the final would be like “watching the Titanic sink”. “Some of them try too hard. They’ve got 30 minutes to cook one dish and share their story. “And rather than just doing something very simple they feel they have to really show themselves off and give an insight into their world, and it’s all too much. A lot of them run out of time. “To put lots of different things on a plate and make it perfect is very hard. The less you put on a plate the more chance you have of achieving perfection.” Another bugbear was the number of contestants who served food they labelled “modern British”.“It’s not modern British. It may be English combinations like pig with apple sauce, but the reality is they’ve taken French methods and introduced it into British cuisine.” Despite his fearsome reputation, he says he was never nasty to the contestants. “I’m not there to criticise them. I might be a bit cheeky, I might be a bit facetious - I’ve got to entertain myself somehow. I always did it in a kitchen, so why should things change when I’m in a truck?” Although many couples leave disappointed, White was happy to take part in a programme that gave exposure to hardworking establishments and featured “real people rather than celebrities”. “They all want to win. They may not, but they still leave the show winners, because what they’re getting is a spotlight on their restaurant.” After all, promoting the industry and giving opportunities to others is, he says, now one of his main aims. He climbed the ladder of the culinary world very quickly

himself, winning three Michelin stars by the age of 33 and training a string of people who have gone on to become big names, including old sparring partner Gordon Ramsay. White famously handed his stars back in 1999, when he gave up cooking professionally and went on to build up his own empire of restaurants and pubs.In recent years, he has become a familiar face to non-foodies through shows such as Kitchen Burnout and Hell’s Kitchen. But he does not count himself among the raft of celebrity chefs who have been filling our screens for the last decade. “I don’t regard myself as [a celebrity]. I’m not seen in public. I don’t go to award shows, I don’t go to gatherings of any description. Therefore I don’t live the lifestyle of a celebrity. “When I’m not working within my businesses, I tend to be at home or with my family or in the woods. I’m happiest in my wellies.” In fact, White confesses to not even owning a television, preferring to “read, have a conversation, play chess”. He adds: “And also there are certain people I don’t like in this world and why do I want them in my front room? It’s as simple as that.” Warming to his theme, he says he came across an episode of Dancing On Ice while in a hotel room in Liverpool, and found it so “hideous” he had to switch it off. Despite his distaste for reality TV, he says he has no desire to return to his days of working in a kitchen. “You have to be honest in life. For the first 22 years of my career I was a chef in the kitchen. I realised my dream. I was a very lucky boy. “For the next 10 years I was a restaurateur and now I’m a publican. And I kind of like being a publican. I really do.” He says his main concern is that he’s expressing himself, and adds: “I think back now to when I was a young man in my industry. People shared their knowledge with me, so I share my knowledge. “People shared their stories so I share my stories of my industry and days gone by. People gave opportunities so I create opportunity. So it’s just passing on the baton.”

EXTRA TIME MARCO PIERRE WHITE Born in 1961 in Morley, Leeds, he was the third of four sons. When White was just six, his mother Maria collapsed and died from a brain haemorrhage. After secondary school, he followed in his father’s footsteps and trained as a chef. He moved to London when he was 16, and worked under Albert and Michel Roux, among others. By 33, White had won three Michelin stars. During his time at The Oak Room in London’s Piccadilly, he trained top chefs including Gordon Ramsay and Heston Blumenthal. In 1988 he married for the first time, and had a daughter. Three weeks after meeting model Lisa Butcher in 1992, they were engaged. Two months later, they were married. The marriage lasted 15 weeks. He met Mati Conjero, with whom he has a son and a daughter, in 1993. They married in 2000 and divorced in 2007. Marco Pierre White’s Kitchen Wars continues on Channel 5 on Thursdays 55

ONE HAPPY ITALIAN With a TV show on our screens and a new cookbook on the shelves, Antonio Carluccio explains why he can’t get enough of Italian cooking!

RECIPE KING PRAWNS, CRAB, GARLIC & CHILLI INGREDIENTS

METHOD

175ml extra virgin olive oil

TIME TO GET CHECKED? While testicular cancer is usually curable with the right treatment, it has to be caught early. To herald the Everyman Male Cancer Awareness Month, cancer experts discuss the symptoms and advances in treatment.


PROSTATE CANCER SYMPTOMS • • • •

Rushing to the toilet to pass urine. Difficulty or pain in passing urine. Passing urine more often than usual. Blood in the urine or semen, although pain and bleeding are rare in prostate cancer and are more often a symptom of noncancerous prostate conditions.

TESTICULAR CANCER SYMPTOMS • A lump in the testicle - although most testicular lumps aren't cancerous, fewer than four in every 100 are cancer. • A cancerous lump isn't usually painful, and can be as small as a pea, or larger. • A dull ache in the affected testicle, or in the lower abdomen. • Heavy feeling in the scrotum. • Possible growth or tenderness of male breasts, due to hormones produced by the cancer.

Cliched though it sounds, men are notoriously poor at addressing their own health problems, often optimistically assuming they'll just go away. And while some symptoms do magically disappear, other male health problems will not go away - and if they're left alone, they could be fatal. That's particularly the case with diseases such as prostate and testicular cancer, which are "rising dramatically", says the Institute of Cancer Research. Prostate cancer, which usually occurs in men over 60, kills one man every hour in the UK, or 10,000 a year, and has overtaken lung cancer to become the most common cancer in men. And while it doesn't kill as many, testicular cancer is the most common cancer in young men, and the incidence has more than doubled since 1975. It usually strikes males aged between 15-44, with 2,000 cases diagnosed in the UK each year, and around 90 men dying from it. Yet testicular cancer has a 99% cure rate if caught early enough, which is one of the reasons why Men's Health Week (June 11-17) is stressing the importance of getting symptoms checked early, and the Institute of Cancer Research's (ICR) Everyman appeal has just launched a renewed funding call for research into male cancers. ICR spokesperson Tatjana Trposka says: "The incidence of prostate and testicular cancers is rising dramatically, reinforcing the urgent need for more funding to carry out research. "It's imperative that men recognise the likely symptoms and seek help immediately if they notice anything unusual."

OVERCOMING RELUCTANCE

Peter Baker, chief executive of the Men's Health Forum, which runs Men's Health Week, says one of the problems with the early diagnosis of male cancers and "pretty much any other health issue that affects men", is that they're often reluctant to seek help. "They do go to the doctor eventually, it just takes them longer and they tend to wait until they're in pain, or sure beyond doubt that they've got the health problem," he adds. While Men's Health Week is encouraging men to adopt healthier lifestyles in general, Baker points out that as there's no obvious cause for prostate and testicular cancers. "There's not a lot you can do to stop yourself getting them," he says."All you can do is be on the lookout for the symptoms, and if you have any, get checked as soon as possible." Past research by Everyman found that 41% of men who discovered a lump chose not to get it checked by a doctor, with 30% saying they hoped

it would go away on its own. Figures also showed that 46% of men don't check for changes in their testicles often enough, with one in five admitting to never checking for lumps. Baker points out that as well as men's reluctance to seek medical help being related to the way they're brought up and not wanting to admit to vulnerability, working long hours can make it difficult to see a doctor. He says there's also not much health information available in the media for men.

DELAYS CAN KILL

With prostate cancer, he points out that men will often think potential symptoms are just a normal part of ageing.

"They tend to put up with it, and it's also embarrassing to go to the doctor with something like that - it's not a manly thing to admit to," In addition, there's an illogical fear of a positive diagnosis, says Baker, pointing out: "Men tend to think that they'd rather not know, and then they don't have to deal with it. "It's certainly about fear, and perhaps they think the brave thing is to keep going as long as possible and be strong and stoical." Such stoicism and delay can kill. The ICR points out that if prostate cancer is diagnosed early, and contained within the prostate, more than 90% of men will survive for five or more years. If the cancer is slow growing, there may be no treatment and the patient will be monitored with 'watchful waiting'. However, if the cancer has spread, the proportion of men surviving beyond five years drops to 30%. With testicular cancer, if it's caught early and hasn't spread, treatment will ordinarily be the surgical removal of the cancerous testicle. This prospect is actually something lots of men fear, but artificial (prosthetic) testicles can be surgically implanted, just as women who undergo a mastectomy may be offered implant replacements. If diagnosis is late and the cancer has spread, this may be followed by chemotherapy, and a lower chance of survival.

KNOW THE RISKS

Dr Robert Huddart, who specialises in urological oncology for the ICR, admits medics don't know

enough about what causes testicular cancer, or how to prevent it. But known risk factors include having undescended testes at birth, and inherited genetic factors - having a father, brother or son who's had testicular cancer. "If you have a brother affected with testicular cancer, you're up to 10 times more likely to also get the disease," says Dr Huddart. "This risk is exceptionally high when compared to other cancer types." As testicular cancer spread is much less likely if caught early, Dr Huddart advises: "Regular self-examination will help you become more aware of the normal feel and size of your testicles so that any abnormalities can be spotted early on." Overall, the harsh truth is that men are more likely to develop cancer than women, and also more likely to die from the disease, says Jessica Harris, health information manager at Cancer Research UK. "The exact reasons for this are unclear," she says. "But it may be related to levels of symptom awareness and whether they're willing to see the doctor." Because early diagnosis means treatment is often easier and survival chances higher, she points out: "It's so important to talk to the doctor if you notice any unusual or persistent change in your body. It's easy to put changes down to getting older, explain them away or put off making an appointment, but it's really worth making time to get it checked out. "The likelihood is it won't be cancer, but if it is, getting it diagnosed at an early stage can make all the difference to the outcome."

TREATMENT ADVANCES

Since 1997, when the ICR launched the Everyman appeal for more research into prostate and testicular cancer, it has helped fund groundbreaking developments including discovering the prostate cancer drug abiraterone, which can extend the lives of late-stage prostate cancer sufferers by more than three months. Last week it was announced that the drug is to be available on the NHS in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, although it won't be available in Scotland, as the Scottish Medicines Consortium turned the drug down, saying the cost didn't justify the health benefits. Other recent treatment advances include the identification of numerous new genetic variants that increase a man's risk of developing prostate and testicular cancer, improvements in prostate cancer radiotherapy, and the development of the drug carboplatin, which has helped lead to the 99% cure rate for testicular cancer.

PEGG SHOWS OFF HIS INNER SLOB


Simon Pegg talks about his new film A Fantastic Fear Of Everything, a surreal comedy horror, and the directorial debut of Kula Shaker’s Crispian Mills, which is released on Friday, June 8. Pegg reveals how he felt about making a film in his underpants and some strange fears of his own. Meeting Simon Pegg feels a bit like catching up with an old friend. He’s Tim from Spaced, the geeky flatmate who isn’t ashamed of his love of comics and science fiction. The kind of guy you can chuckle over a few pints with, and who you would definitely want on your team in a pub quiz. Today, he’s particularly keen to chat about his latest film, surreal comedy horror A Fantastic Fear Of Everything, which marks the directorial debut of Kula Shaker’s Crispian Mills. Pegg plays children’s author Jack, who has become so paranoid researching a new Victorian crime novel that he can barely leave the house. Pegg explains: “Jack is a sweet children’s author who has decided to ‘get serious’ and write about something a little more grown-up so it takes on the notion of

serial killers and death because that’s the most serious thing he can think of. “When really it’s his children’s writing which bears all the terror and fear for him, because it’s the very thing he projects all his childhood trauma onto. So even though he’s trying to redirect his talents to something more grown-up, the spirit of his hedgehog Harold won’t let him go.” Pegg spends much of the film looking unkempt and dishevelled, wearing very little other than a pair of dirty Y-fronts. “It was joyous,” he exclaims. “I can’t think of a better way to spend a day than just in your pants and get paid for it. It was brilliant. And utterly comfortable. “By the time everyone had seen me once, it became a very common thing to just see me walking around... naked... and just sitting in a deck chair with my legs sprawled!” Pegg suppresses a snigger at his own joke. Today he is looking dapper in a pastel shirt with the sleeves rolled back to show off his LA tan, and his trademark bleached blond hair slicked back. It’s a world away from the hairy, maniacal creature in the film, which required him to abandon all personal grooming. “I grew my nails out and I grew my facial hair out and I did a lot of yoga so that I lost a lot of weight,” he reveals. And yet he manages to make such a horrifying appearance most amusing. “One of the great things about Simon Pegg is you can relate to him,” says director Mills. “He’s a real everyman. “I think that’s a pretty magical quality. It’s just a gift he’s got. That’s why he’s a movie star.” And Pegg is a big star these days. Since the success of his films with friends Edgar Wright and Nick Frost - Shaun Of The Dead and Hot Fuzz - Pegg has gone on to star in Hollywood blockbusters Mission: Impossible 4, Star Trek and Steven Spielberg’s Tintin movie adaptation. He hangs out with A-listers Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow. He could even be classed, though probably much against his own wishes, as a celebrity. But Pegg, who seems to be living the dream, is dismissive of such a title. “I don’t know if I am big Hollywood star. I work in America. That doesn’t mean you’re a Hollywood star - Tom Cruise is a big Hollywood star. “I’m just an actor and I can fortunately speak the same language as they do so I have the opportunity to work there as well. “The thing about being in LA, you are in the very thick of the industry and you find yourself getting jobs

at dinner, rather than having to make an effort.” He’d jump at the opportunity to do some serious drama, but concedes comedy is his “first love”. He has just shot a part in a US TV pilot playing a “Jewish Californian comic”, but accepts that Americans see him as “the funny British guy”. “I’m the guy who crops up and makes jokes in difficult situations and I’m happy if that’s my entry into working in American cinema. “America is a really prolific market place and they have less trouble getting films made than we do. Because they have an industry, and we just have a lot of talented people trying to make films - that’s not an industry.” Pegg, Wright and Frost are about to begin work on their highlyanticipated film The World’s End, the final part in their Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy. It will have the biggest budget so far, but he’s apprehensive about the audience reaction. “In a perfect world, you wouldn’t have to show your work [to everyone]. You’d get to make the film with all the resources available and then just give a DVD to your mum, and you wouldn’t have to go through the trauma of everyone judging it.” Pegg admits to being scared of failure - and being eaten by lions. “That happens,” he deadpans matter-of-factly. But as a husband and father to young daughter Matilda, the 42-year-old has had to “man up” and conquer his fear of spiders. “I’m the one who has to get rid of them because everyone else in the house is scared - even my dog,” he says. His growing success in Hollywood hasn’t got in the way of his family life. He has just returned home to London from five months’ filming Lost creator J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek 2 - and took his wife and daughter out there with him. “We all just moved out to LA for six months, got a nice house on the Westside and had a delightful time. Matilda was born in the US while Pegg and Frost were shooting their road trip comedy Paul. “It was all factored into the schedule,” he laughs. “Occasionally I have to be away from them and that’s agonising but thank you Facetime and Skype for easing that. “It’s the hard part of the job, that separation, but I pay for the joy of doing something that I love.”

PEGGS QUIRKY COMEDIES • Shaun Of The Dead (2004): Pegg stars as reluctant hero Shaun who finds himself fighting to save his friends and family from a zombie attack in this British spoof of Dawn Of The Dead. • Hot Fuzz (2007): Pegg and best friend Frost star as policemen who discover a crime cover-up conspiracy in their small British market town in this comedy homage to action films. • Burke And Hare (2010): Pegg and Lord Of The Rings star Andy Serkis play the infamous Edinburgh bodysnatchers Burke and Hare, who sold dead bodies to doctors for research in the 1700s. Blues Brother John Landis directed this spook comedy. • Paul (2010): Pegg and Frost team up again for this sci-fi comedy about two comic book geeks whose American road trip goes awry when they meet a friendly alien called Paul. • A Fantastic Fear Of Everything is released in cinemas on Friday, June 8 79

FIVE MINUTES WITH... SIMON DAVIS Writer and businessman Simon Davis talks about bringing the wow factor back to Britain’s stately homes in the new series of Channel 4’s Country House Rescue.

Country house rescue has returned for a fourth series. Why do you think it’s so popular? I think it taps into several national obsessions - one is with heritage and country houses. You only have to look at how many people watch Downton Abbey, and how many people go and visit gardens and country houses at the weekend. It’s entrenched in our psyche, and I think we love the grandeur of the architecture. We love what they used to represent - a time when things were perhaps more rarefied and a little bit quieter. Also, we’re a nation of curtain-twitchers so we love having a nosey, and human nature just loves seeing people in trouble! We watch these people floating around in their palatial homes, but they’re all suffering from many of the problems that we’re all suffering from.

What first appealed to you about this job? The main reason is that I have an unbridled passion for English country houses. I’m not an architect by any means but I have a great love of architecture. The second one is that I love a challenge. I run an events company, and I’m constantly having to come up with ideas to make money. I loved the challenge of seeing if I could come up with new ideas that could actually make money against the backdrop of these houses.

What was the thinking process behind your ideas? It would be pointless to come up with wild, crazy ideas that make fabulous television if [the families are] back to square one as soon as we leave. So what you need to do is come up with

98

ideas for medium to long-term financial rewards that they themselves can run. My job was to come up with those ideas and give people the confidence to do them. In one case, the wife had no confidence at all but I thought she was a real hidden gem. I’m pleased to say that by the time I left, she was managing her own cafe and garden. I left feeling that I’d given her the confidence to do it and that was really rewarding.

did you ask me to come?’ The place was falling down, they weren’t making any money and they were charging all the wrong prices. One of the biggest problems for a lot of owners is that they have huge emotional attachments to their home, and they cannot countenance the idea that it also has to be a business. Then the next hurdle is that they always think they will be the best person to run that business when often they’re not.

That sense of achievement must make it all worthwhile?

Are there any particular highlights to look out for?

It is a fantastic feeling, and it gets quite emotional in some cases because [the families] are at the end of their tether. They feel as though they’ve tried everything and that because they live in a big house, people think, ‘Just sell it and stop whinging’. In one case, the house was for sale and no one wanted to buy it, so even that wasn’t going to work! But it was hugely rewarding. In all but one of the houses that I left, they thanked me for coming.

One was a house called Chapel Cleeve Manor, [owned by] a woman who had only lived there for 12 years. She used to go there as a young girl and had an emotional attachment to the house - which [at the time] was going to be either turned into flats or knocked down. She managed to scrape together the money to buy it and spent the next eight years trying to fix it up. Subsequently her husband left her and she’s been living there alone, trying to do everything herself. She was in desperate straits when I got there. It’s very hard when they’ve got no money at all.

Were the families quite receptive to your ideas, or were you met with some opposition? You’re always met with an element of opposition because these people are inviting you into their home. They know I’m going to tell them things they probably won’t want to hear. So, yes, they do kick back sometimes, but that’s all part of the process. My job is to make them realise that they can do what I’m asking with my help and that once I go, they will feel confident that they’ve been put on a different path.

Tell us about the one uncooperative family. They decided that they knew better than everybody else. They kept ranting and raving about how they’d been there for 900 years and they knew better, to which I asked: ‘So why

Will you be back for the fifth series? I think they’ll wait to see if everyone switches off - if they don’t, I might be in with a good chance [of returning]. Everyone who’s spoken to me so far seems to like what we’ve done, so we shall see.

Q

Deadhead bedding plants and repeatflowering perennials, to ensure continuous flowering. Check clematis for signs of clematis wilt. Water tubs and new plants if dry, but be water-wise. Pick courgettes before they become marrows. Give the lawn a quick-acting summer feed, especially if a spring feed was not done. Give woodwork a lick of paint or preserver, while the weather is dry. Trees that have been recently planted, even up to two years ago, need careful attention if the weather is hot and dry. Treat apple scab. Clear algae, blanket weeds and debris from ponds, and keep them topped up.

Email gardendoctor@stewarts.co.uk My pear tree was smothered in blossom in spring but I only have a handful of fruit. Two of them look reasonably healthy, but the rest look shrivelled with brown spots. Can you please tell me what could have caused this? Without seeing the fruit it is difficult to say with certainty, although the symptoms described could apply to Pear Scab. This presents as more or less rounded greenish-brown blotches  especially on the leaves of flowering branches. the centres of the spots then die and the leaves may blister. On the fruit dark spots appear which then become greenish and sometimes cracked or corky. This disease is caused by fungal spores that travel on the wind and rain. Treatment is to collect all fallen leaves from under the tree and burn and then use an appropriate fungicide in spring when the leaves first appear at fortnightly intervals until the blossom drops. Systhane fungus fighter has recommendations for use with pear scab but other fungicides will be available but should only be used if it clearly states that it is suitable for edible plants and for the purpose required. The RHS website provides advice on apple and pear scab and may help identification.

It sits beautifully in its waterside location of Hill Head, ensuring that every key room enjoys expansive views of the Solent and the Isle of Wight.

The teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s extraordinary ability to create contemporary structures in absolute harmony with their setting is evident in the Boathouse (see below), which recently won the Daily Telegraph Small House of the Year Award. The structure floats over the lake in the stunning Cotswolds Water Park and provides a quiet hide-away with calming views over the still water. Their elegant and contemporary designs are held in high regard within the Architectural industry; the studio was shortlisted for the RIBA Downland Award again in 2010, while Andy Ramus has been shortlisted for the prestigious Young Architect of the Year 2011.

MOVIES ARE DREWâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S PLAN B LIVE DATES: Plan B is playing at the following venues this summer:

JUNE

15 - Thetford Forest, Suffolk 16 - Sherwood Pines, Nottinghamshire 22 - Bedgebury Pinetum, Kent 23 - Westonbirt Arboretum, Westonbirt 24 - Radio 1 Hackney Weekend 29 - Cannock Chase Forest, Staffordshire 30 - Dalby Forest, North Yorkshire

JULY

3 - Mallorca Rocks 6 - Eden Project, Cornwall 7 - Delamere Forest, Cheshire 14 - Exit Festival, Serbia 25 - Ibiza Rocks


Chart-topping rapper Plan B - aka Ben Drew - has taken time out from behind the mike to make his directorial film debut with iLL Manors, which opened in cinemas on Wednesday, June 6. The accompanying album of the same name is to follow on July 16. The London-based musician talks about directing, drugs and dropping out of school. Ben Drew is looking forward to some time off. Lighting a cigarette, he says: “I’ve been working every day in the last few years, so it doesn’t leave much time for life. I think I’m starting to burn out now. So after this, I’m just going to have a break.” Yet with an upcoming film role in The Sweeney opposite Ray Winstone, and a list of summer festival appearances, including a forests tour and Serbia’s Exit festival, the 28-year-old - better known as his rap alter ego Plan B - is aware that free time is a luxury. “I’m dreading these shows, because of the amount of preparation that goes into making sure I perform at the level that I always have. I hate not having time to get things right, because you have to put things out that you’re not 100% happy with,” he says. “That kills me. I’ve been working so hard and so long to do what I’m doing now, and it really upsets me when I can’t do it to the level of which I know I’m capable. “But,” he adds, “I will get there, and I’ll put on a good show - it just means I’m not going to have a life for a little bit longer.” Plan B fans will be aware that the rapper has gradually been moving away from music into film, with roles in Adulthood, 4.3.2.1 and Harry Brown, in between releasing his critically acclaimed soul album, The Defamation Of Strickland Banks. He’s now taken the next step by making his directorial debut with iLL Manors, which is accompanied by an album soundtrack of the same name. “It’s the hardest thing I’ve ever done in my life,” he admits. “That was because I didn’t have the financial support I needed, and people doubt you, so you have to deal with that. It’s pretty tough.” Based on “a collection of stories which me or friends have experienced” in east London, the hard-hitting gritty thriller is not an easy watch, although its provocative nature has won Drew

the label of “the mouthpiece of a generation”. It has been praised by fellow musicians Ed Sheeran, Professor Green and Tinie Tempah. “The majority of the white population in this country don’t even believe this environment or these people actually exist - they think it’s just an exaggeration but it’s not. There’s no way I can fictionalise that,” he insists. “I’m not sitting there, dreaming this stuff up to make a film I can make money from.” Citing Quentin Tarantino and Nicolas Winding Refn as his inspiration, Drew’s film has been criticised for glorifying violence, but he insists: “I know some of the scenes will shock some people. But nothing is included just for shock value - every event portrayed is crucial to the story.

“My original draft was a lot bleaker - tragedy all around, because I guess that’s where I was at in my head when I wrote it” “Then, before shooting it in 2010, my life changed and I’ve become more optimistic so I took the liberty of changing things in the story.” Drew gives himself a cameo, but didn’t want a starring role in the film. “I didn’t want it to be a vanity project,” he says. Starring Four Lions’ Riz Ahmed alongside upand-coming actors like Anouska Mond and Ed Skrein, iLL Manors is clearly a passion project for Drew, who has always wanted to make this film to encourage social change. “This film is a chance for me to show where these problems start and the domino effect they have within people’s lives. “This is about the negative things and crimes you read about in the newspapers that don’t explain why they happen, which I feel adds more pressure to the whole misconception of the underclasses,” he explains. The musician - who attended Tunmarsh Pupil Referral Unit (PRU) in Plaistow after being kicked out of school at the age of 16 - is in a position to confront society with these stories, having grown up in and around London’s Forest Gate, but he also wants to touch today’s

troubled youth. “I want teens and young adults to learn that messing with guns and being in gangs ain’t cool - I know it’s hard because it’s easy to get sucked in. I want my movie and music to help kids like me, who have been forgotten about and laughed at,” he says. Yet Drew, whose musician father walked out when he was just five months old, readily admits he could have been one of those kids. “I could have gone down that route, yeah. But I was lucky - I had a talent,” he says. “I knew if I worked hard at it, I could make something of myself. These kids only care about how to get money now and nice trainers and wide-screen TVs, and they will do anything like sell crack.” Making a positive change to his community makes Drew happy. “When I went back to my old PRU and I got the kids to write and perform their own songs, that filled me with so much more purpose and meaning than anything ever I’ve done in my life, including this film. “It makes me happy knowing that I have the power to make other people’s lives better.” Drew was inspired to write the iLL Manors single after last summer’s looting and rioting. The song has been hailed by MPs and Drew’s stance has been praised. “I genuinely want to change things and I feel like this is just the first step. I am an angry white rapper but I’m not just that. People think I don’t care, but I do,” he adds, lighting another cigarette. “There are so many insincere people pretending to care about things so they can make money out of it, so I forgive people for being cynical about my motives and what I do. Only time will prove that I do care.” Drew admits the big screen is his calling and now plans to incorporate his music within movies. “I didn’t do this as a one-off thing, I want to make films and be a director. I saw this as my calling card, but also it allowed me to talk about this issue,” he explains. “My hip-hop music is not really for commercial radio, so I felt like if I had a different kind of medium where it could live, I don’t have to water it down or compromise. I thought film would be the perfect place.” There are reports that his next film will be about the city’s Kurdish community, but Drew says: “I might need a

MUSICIANS TURNED DIRECTORS Ben Drew isn’t the first musician to swap the mike for movies. Here are some of the others: • Madonna - Following roles in Evita, Desperately Seeking Susan and A League Of Their Own, the Queen of Pop went behind the cameras for short film, Filth And Wisdom, before 2012’s period drama WE. • Ice Cube - The NWA rapper, whose real name is O’Shea Jackson, directed 1998’s The Players Club as well as writing the Friday comedies. • Fred Durst - The Limp Bizkit frontman made his directorial debut in 2007 with The Education Of Charlie Banks. He later directed The Longshots in 2008 and is set to direct Pawn Shop Chronicles. • RZA - Wu-Tang Clan member RZA - aka Robert Fitzgerald Diggs - is making his directorial debut with The Man With The Iron Fists, in which he stars alongside Russell Crowe. 143

As the police announce a summer crackdown on drink driving, safety group Brake and Direct Line insurers are calling on all drivers, but men in particular, to pledge to stay off the booze if getting behind the wheel. Their calls come, as latest research shows male drivers are three times more likely to regularly take to the road after drinking alcohol, than their female counterparts. This month (June) a nationwide enforcement campaign is underway, led by the Association of Chief Police officers. It will step up levels of roadside testing for alcohol as well as highlight the dangers of drink driving. In June 2011, more than 5,000 drivers were caught as part of the drink drive crackdown. Julie Townsend, Brake deputy chief executive, said: “Anyone who drives after drinking alcohol – even one drink – is taking a horrendous risk with people’s lives. We can all help prevent needless drink drive casualties this summer, by pledging to drive sober or not at all and planning ahead; so you friends and family can get home safely from festivities. We’re particularly appealing to male drivers, to consider the appalling suffering they could cause, and commit to never getting behind the wheel after drinking: not a drop.” Andy Goldby, Director of Motor Underwriting and Pricing at Direct Line Car Insurance said: “Drink driving is one of the most serious crimes a driver can commit and those who chose to do it are not just risking their own lives, but those of other road users. The affect alcohol consumption has on someone's ability to drive are well documented. Anyone who gets in a car when they have been drinking, are accepting their actions will endanger others. There is no excuse to drink drive. Ensuring you stay within the law and keep the roads safe, is simple; if you know you are going to drink, don’t drive, and if you know you are going to drive don’t drink.”

The condition of council roads failed to improve between 2008 and 2011 according to new figures from the Department for Transport. The councils with the highest percentage of main (principal) roads requiring maintenance are Haringey (20 per cent), Camden (17 per cent), Oldham (14 per cent) and Reading (14 per cent). The councils with the highest percentage of minor (non-principal) roads requiring maintenance are Newham (20 per cent), North Lincolnshire (18 per cent), and Haringey (18 per cent). Of the 89 councils that provided data, 38 per cent reported that their minor roads deteriorated in 2010/11, 38 per cent of councils remained the

same, and 24 per cent reported improvements. In the same period, 40 per cent of councils reported deterioration in main road conditions, 38 per cent reported that their roads had remained the same and 21 per cent reported improved conditions.

"POOR ROAD CONDITIONS DAMAGE VEHICLES, & ARE ESPECIALLY DANGEROUS TO CYCLISTS & MOTORCYCLISTS ." IAM director of policy and research Neil Greig said: “Under the previous government local authorities had targets to improve the condition

of their roads. While the old system of road maintenance targets wasn’t perfect, the effect of the coalition scrapping these targets is evident in certain areas. “Extra central government money following recent bad winters and the public outcry over the state of the roads has helped to stem the tide, but only when we have a commitment to long term funding can councils really start to address the huge backlog of repairs. “Poor road conditions damage vehicles, and are especially dangerous to cyclists and motorcyclists who can be easily thrown off course by potholes. They also put all road users at risk, as drivers take evasive action to avoid hitting them.”

Styling cues such as the elegant new waist, elongated side strakes and LED rear light blades are derived from the One77 supercar. "Closer inspection reveals details such as the stunning new Aero Duct on the rear boot lid. This elegantly devised passive engineering feature, which counteracts lift at the car’s rear when travelling at speed, is a triumph of both design and technical ability." The new 6.0-litre V12 petrol engine develops 565 hp and is mated to a Touchtronic six-speed

automatic gearbox. The 0-60 mph time is 4.1 seconds and the top speed is 183 mph. Each body panel on the car is constructed from carbon fibre because of its high strengthto-weight ratio and flexibility of form. Meanwhile torsional rigidity is improved by more than 25%. Practical improvements such as a newly designed and significantly more spacious cabin and a boot that, at 368 litres, is more than 60% larger than that of the Aston MartinDBS.

THE 0-60 MPH TIME IS 4.1 SECONDS AND THE TOP SPEED IS 183 MPH

Consumer magazine Which? has named Kia as its Best car Manufacturer for 2012 in its annual awards, praising the company’s “superb new range of cars” as well as the brand’s excellent value for money and “industry-leading” seven year warranty. Presenting the award, Which? Chief Executive, Peter Vicary-Smith said: “This is the first time Kia has made the short-list and to walk off with the title is a significant achievement.” He went on to praise Kia for being one of the top ranked brands in the 2012 Which? Car survey for both customer satisfaction and reliability. Kia beat off competition from BMW, Hyundai, Skoda and Toyota to take the prize. Which? said in its commendation: “Kia’s new Rio, Sorento and Picanto have all impressed in our Test Lab, while the new cee’d and Optima get the thumbs-up from our initial road tests. Compared to where it was just five years ago, we feel that Kia is the most improved car brand around.”

"WE ARE ABSOLUTELY DELIGHTED TO WIN THIS AWARD – ESPECIALLY AT THE FIRST ATTEMPT" Kia Motors (UK) Managing Director Michael Cole said: “We are absolutely delighted to win this award – especially at the first attempt. It marks the culmination of several years of hard work by our designers, engineers and by our dealers who are as committed as we are to give our customers an outstanding buying and ownership experience. We see this as a great honour as Which? has a long history of championing the consumer and being remarkably thorough in its testing process.”

CONCERNS OVER ROAD RAGE One in two motorists no longer enjoy driving – with the threat of road rage among the reasons why, according to new research from Continental Tyres. The worry was revealed in a study carried out among 2,000 drivers, which also revealed around 15 per cent – or five million motorists – have got out of their car to confront another driver.

"FIVE MILLION MOTORISTS HAVE GOT OUT OF THEIR CAR TO CONFRONT ANOTHER DRIVER 146

Continental Tyres produced the report to

support its ‘Courtesy Campaign’ to encourage motorists to employ more courteous driving methods.The study highlighted the need for awareness as it found that one in three road users ‘expect’ to experience aggressive or intimidating driving whilst out in the car. Dr Mark Sullman, expert in driver behaviour at Cranfield University said: “When driving, we are prevented from using the normal cues to work out people's intentions, such as facial expression and body language, so we are more likely to misunderstand their behaviour and interpret it in a negative way. “For instance if you bump into someone on foot, a quick smile or ‘oops’ is all that is needed

to show it was accidental. However, when in the car, with the absence of cues, people are much more likely to react in an aggressive manner than in other ‘public’ situations.” Dr Sullman advises: “You can choose not to let it rile you and instead deal with the situation in a positive way, such as concentrating on driving safely yourself or realising that everyone makes mistakes.” Whilst we might point to others for falling standards the study also identified Brits grudgingly accept their own failings. More than four in ten (41 per cent) admitted they can be an angry driver while 15 per cent even own up to getting out of their car to confront another road user.


Rainbow-coloured suiting, bomber jackets, pyjama pants and leather-collared shirts. These are some of the pieces featuring in this season’s top menswear trends. But let’s be real, how many men do you know who follow the catwalk as closely as the Premiership league table? Guys just want fashion that’s functional and comfortable, which is why nailing the seasonal staples is essential when it comes to everyday wear. That way he can shop less but still look effortlessly stylish.

148

And it seems the average fashion-phobic chap is in luck. “This season is all about light, airy and easy style,” says Jeremy Langmead, editor-in-chief of MrPorter. com. “Think loose fits, tactile fabrics, tantalising details, perky prints and uplifting colours.” With a bumper British summer ahead including Euro 2012 and the Olympics, let alone Father’s Day, we reveal the real wardrobe heroes.


149


Fitness Fanatic He may not have bagged tickets for the 100m finals but your man can still achieve a winning look with this season’s sportinspired pieces. “The Olympics has been a major influence on fashion across menswear for this season, so make a dash for sporty shapes and fabrics,” Langmead says. “If you’re looking for something that can be worn beyond the gym, look for pieces inspired by vintage sportswear. Washed jersey sweats, heritage shapes and colours feel very right for this summer.” This bit of kit is multifunctional, meaning it doubles up for both gym work and not-so-active play but is always best reserved for casual occasions. Accessories are the finishing touch to give him a real sporting chance.

:: Style essentials: Sweatpants, motif T-shirt, trainers, sporty watch.


Event socialite For the man with invitations permanently stacked on the mantelpiece, a full-on tuxedo suit isn’t always necessary to make an impression. To work the room with confidence, check whether the dress code is specifically black tie or casual first. Langmead says: “This summer’s deconstructed tailoring is ideal for event dressing. Try a soft-shouldered or unlined jacket, either double breasted or more informal in a checked cotton, or an easy to wear neutral shade. “A bright tie will add a pop of colour to a more cautious outfit choice, especially against a white or pale blue shirt - the ideal finishing touch to a summer wedding outfit.”

:: Style essentials: Unlined jacket, high-shine shoes, bright tie, cufflinks.

Office angel If he’s permanently putting in late shifts at the office, looking good might just result in a promotion high. Classic winter officewear is not going to cut it in the midst of a heatwave, so he’ll need to invest in seasonally appropriate lighter suiting. Alternatively, brighten up a tired suit with a choice eye-catching accessory. “The best way to update your corporate uniform for the summer is to inject some colour,” Langmead suggests. “Bright patterned ties, pocket squares or even socks are an astute way of acknowledging the trend for bold prints this season without going all out.”

:: Style essentials: Tan briefcase, striped socks, print shirt, pocket square.


Travel junkie No matter how patriotic he’s feeling, the Brits abroad look is always one to avoid. When travelling abroad for a special event or work, it’s important to venture beyond the shorts and t-shirt vacation uniform. “Once you reach your destination, the aim is to reconcile relaxation with dressing up when appropriate,” advises Langmead. “Invest in good basics; a quality bag and a considered holiday wardrobe will last beyond this summer.” Little touches like a smart holdall and passport holder will make him feel worthy of a first-class upgrade at the airport. :: Style essentials: Light unstructured blazer, sunglasses, leather holdall.

FACE FACTS Owner of Chic Beauty Salon & Chic Academy, Sophie Tamagna shares her top tips on the best facial treatments and answers your daily beauty dilemmas.

WHAT FACIAL TREATMENTS ARE AVAILABLE FOR ME? A facial can be considered a vital step towards healthy skin for both women and men. Choosing an in-salon facial treatment can be a minefield. With most high street salons offering us a wealth of treatments promising to plump, hydrate and rejuvenate how do you choose the one that is right for you and your skin? Below are my 5 favourite facial treatments including the pros and cons of each! The Oxygen Facial Instantly plump and hydrate fine lines with this pure oxygen infusion facial! Pros - Instant quick results! Cons – A series of treatments is needed to maintain results. From £36.00 A Facial Peel Your therapist will choose a Peel strength to suit your skin type and needs. Pros - A great way to improve skin texture and tone, reduce pigmentation and fine lines Cons – Not suitable for sensitive skin types. Can be pricey! From £65.00 The Classic Dermalogica Facial You can’t beat a classic deep cleansing facial that includes steaming the skin and extraction of blocked pores. Pro’s – Functional and relaxing Cons – There really aren’t any! From £36.00 Non surgical Facelift Micro currents work to lift and firm facial muscles, re -educating the muscles. Pros – Relaxing and impressive results, great for sagging jowls Cons – up to 12 treatments are needed for a permanent result. From £38.95 Microdermabrasion Micro crystal technology buffs off dead skin cells creating a smoother, bright and radiant complexion. Pros: Quick, significant results. Cons: Not suitable for sensitive skin types. From £44.95

BEAUTY Q&A Which do I put on my face first, sunscreen of moisturizer? What you apply first depends on the kind of sunscreen you use. A physical block (containing titanium dioxide or zinc oxide) can be applied over your moisturizer. But a chemical sunscreen (avobenzone or oxybenzone), which works by interacting with your skin to absorb the sun's rays, must penetrate whatever is already on your face in order to be effective, so its smart to apply this type before anything else. Keep in mind: In summer, unless your skin is very dry, you can probably use just one product: a moisturizing sunscreen. I like Dermalogica Ultra Sensitive Face Block SPF 25 50ml from £18.00

it's also influenced by genetics and hormones. Oral prescription medicines can give long-lasting results with cystic or severe acne, but some stronger medicines can have severe side effects. The best way to prevent acne is by using a combination of ingredients that address each step in the breakout process, including salicylic acid to disrupt the plug, benzoyl peroxide for protection from bacteria and sulphur for its anti-inflammatory effect. Bottom line: You can treat the superficial causes topically, but because acne involves genetics, the only permanent solution will involve gene therapy—and we're not there yet. I recommend Dermalogicas anti-bacterial skin care range.

How can I get rid of the deep vertical lines on my upper lip? This area is where the signs of ageing tend to show first on the face. A three-step approach works well to eliminate the lines, A facial Peel of 40% in this area can resurface the skin and prime it ready for Injections of a filler like Juvéderm or Restylane which has a filling effect. Finally a very small amount of Botox, injected into the sides of the mouth, can prevent the kind of puckering that helps to cause them. Keep in mind: If you choose this route, it's critical that you see a specialist with experience who has evidence of other work carried out. How can I figure out my skin type? It's easy. Wash your face with a cleanser designed for normal skin; rinse well, and pat dry with a soft towel. How does it feel? If it's tight, ashy or flaky, your complexion is dry. If you're oily only across the forehead, down the nose and on the chin, you've got combination skin; and if you need to blot your whole face with a tissue, you're oily. If your face feels irritated or slightly itchy, you likely have sensitive skin. Bottom line: Once you've established your skin type, repeat the test four times a year, because your skin probably changes seasonally. Book a Dermalogica Skin Mapping session to find out exactly what’s going on in all the zones of your face! Why isn't there a way to get rid of acne immediately and permanently? It’s actually harder than you'd think, because acne results from a complicated process involving a plugged pore, oil, bacteria and inflammation, and

5 REASONS MEN SHOULD HAVE REGULAR FACIALS In the battle to be the best a man can be: where to draw the line? What about the facial? For too many men – including my husband - the facial has always been on the dark side of what is acceptable for a man. A bit too poncey. A tad too girly. Which just goes to show how far men still have to go. Can I change their minds... 1. To Relax – the average male works 45 hours a week with little time to unwind 2. Daily shaving can strip the protective top layers of the skin causing dryness and sensitivity which can be rectified in a facial 3. To deep cleanse and exfoliate the skin removing dulling surface debris 4. Many facials treat the neck and shoulders also – common places for breakouts in males 5. To look and feel great, healthy and alive!

3 WAYS EXERCISE MAKES

YOU FEEL BETTER When we talk about the benefits of exercise, looking better gets the most attention. Burning off unwanted pounds is a great thing, but let's not overlook a more immediate benefit of exercise. Exercise transforms how you feel— with a quickness. It's true. While weight loss takes time and extended effort, all it takes is one workout to begin reaping the reward of a more energetic and capable body.

1. YOU'LL HAVE MORE ENERGY How are your energy levels these days? (And I'm talking about natural energy, not energy manufactured by caffeine.) Do your eyes pop open at the sound of your alarm? Then do you bounce through your day with a spring in your step? Or do you hit snooze half a dozen times before getting up and dragging through your day? While you may not instantly feel like the Energizer Bunny, your energy levels will dramatically increase once you begin a consistent, challenging exercise routine. How does spending energy create more energy? "(Exercise) literally creates energy in your body. Your body rises up to meet the challenge for more energy by becoming stronger," explains Samantha Heller MS, RD. Research consistently concludes that regular exercise increases energy levels and reduces fatigue.

2. YOU'LL HAVE FEWER ACHES & PAINS When your life becomes sedentary (this means you are inactive for most of the day) then you'll quickly find your body developing aches and pains. You'll feel it when you stand up - a throb in your back, creaking in your knees and stiffness in your legs. This is pain due to underuse. Your body was meant to move! Movement improves flexibility and range of motion, and releases natural painreducing endorphins, which means that, with a regular exercise program, you'll be moving smoother and with less pain than ever before.

3. YOU'LL FEEL HAPPY & CONFIDENT

156

It's hard to understand how 30 to 60 minutes a day spent on exercise is able to completely transform how you feel about yourself. But it does. Think back to the last time that you

accomplished something. Maybe you performed well at work and received kudos from your boss, or you finished a project at home that took weeks of your time and concentration. Do you remember how that accomplishment made you feel? You stood a little bit straighter, you smiled easily, and deep down you felt alive with excitement. When challenging exercise becomes a regular part of your life, feelings of happiness and confidence also become a part of you. From now on I want you to forget the idea that exercise is nothing more than a means to achieving a slimmer body. Instead, look at exercise as a complete life enhancer. I'd love to get a call or an email from you. Reach out to me and I'll show you how to integrate a consistent, challenging exercise routine into your lifestyle so that you'll begin to reap the benefits of an energetic, more confident you. Don't wait to begin enjoying the benefits of an active lifestyle - call or email now!

SMART COFFEE STOP

SHREDDED CHICKEN LETTUCE WRAPS Servings: 6 Another sure-fire way to feel better than ever is to eat a diet that is high in fiber and protein and low in refined sugar and carbohydrates. These shredded chicken lettuce wraps are easy to make and will keep you on track with your healthy, fit lifestyle.

Here’s what you need...

There’s a good chance that you’ll find yourself in a coffee shop looking for refreshment at one time or another this summer. It may even be a daily occurrence! Keep in mind that what you order will directly impact how you look and feel.

1 Tablespoon chile pepper 1 teaspoon salt 2 teaspoon pepper 1 Tablespoon dried oregano 1/2 cup lime juice, divided 2 Tablespoons olive oil 6 whole chicken legs 3 cups shredded cabbage 1/4 cup red onion, thinly chopped 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped 6 large butter lettuce leaves

Use these guidelines to order smart:

Order something that will cool you off, not weigh you down. This means only drinking beverages that contain little to no sugar. Blended drinks are packed with sugar - making this the worst choice. Imagine that blended coffee drinks are a dessert-in-a-cup - because it will end up stored on your body as quickly as a slice of cheesecake. Unsweetened or lightly sweetened iced tea or coffee is an excellent choice.

In a small bowl combine the chile pepper, salt, pepper, oregano, 1/4 cup of the lime juice and the olive oil. Place the chicken in a large baking pan and coat with the seasoning mixture. Cover and refrigerate for 4 hours. Meanwhile, in a large bowl combine the cabbage, onion, cilantro and remaining 1/4 cup lime juice. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Cover and refrigerate for 4 hours. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Roast the chicken legs for 40 minutes. When the chicken has cooled, discard the skin and bones and shred the chicken. Fill each lettuce leaf with a spoonful of cabbage mixture, topped with shredded chicken.

Nutritional Analysis: One serving equals: 248 calories, 12 fat, 740mg sodium, 5g carbohydrate, 2g fiber, and 26.7g protein.
