Hello and welcome to our very special, ‘Summer Special’ issue of House. You’ll notice we’ve gone a bit ‘off-piste’ from our usual front covers and this one sets the tone for the whole issue. As it’s July and the Summer holidays have officially begun (although somebody forgot to tell the weather!) we thought we’d dedicate a whole special issue to your kids and what to do with the little terrors over the coming weeks. We’ve got interiors tips for their room on page 72, storage ideas for their stuff on 106, family holiday ideas on 56, fashion ideas for them on 157 and 6 pages crammed full of day out ideas on page 169! Not only that, but we’ve got lots of competitions this issue, including

a very special Peppa Pig competition to keep your little ones entertained and win tickets to Peppa Pig World! On top of all the usuals, tons of property and jobs, if you’re not yet with-child, but have one on the way, check our our ‘Eating for Two’ feature on page 186. Phew, time for a cup of mint tea and a game of Space Invaders on our new bespoke Surface Tension games table!... Until next time Emma Harman Editor

BOOMING BOSCOMBE

Martin & Co Bournemouth have proved that Boscombe really has regenerated into a thriving and sought after area! Emily Hunter, Negotiator at the Martin & Co Bournemouth office, recently let a character conversion located close to the vibrant shopping centre - not only a month prior to it becoming available but also on the very first viewing! “It is a lovely two double bedroom flat and I am delighted it went on the first viewing!” said Emily. “We have seen a growing demand from professional and pre-qualified tenants for properties in the area and it shows that people really do want to settle into the vicinity for the long term.” Boscombe has been the subject of a long term regeneration plan and it

is clear that it is working with pleasing results. Improvements to Boscombe Crescent, the introduction of community living, a local market and the development of the pier have increasingly improved the appeal of the suburb. Councillor Robert Lawton, Cabinet Member for Housing at Bournemouth Town Hall, recently commented on the strategy, “Boscombe has huge potential for positive change. We want to take the area’s best elements and use its’ potential to attract investment to make positive changes to the housing types and for the community so that Boscombe becomes a better and aspirational place for people to live and put down roots.” Business Development Manager for Martin & Co Bournemouth,

EXPANSIVE HARBOUR VIEWS IN LILLIPUT

Lucinda Lester, is delighted with Emily’s results. “We aim to find quality tenants, fast! Emily’s success shows how important it is to pre-qualify applicants prior to viewing to ensure we match them with the appropriate property. We have a large database of qualified applicants seeking to move into all areas of Bournemouth but we are certainly seeing an increase in the favourability of Boscombe. It’s great to see how the area has improved and now attracts professional tenants.” If you have a property to let in Boscombe or anywhere in Bournemouth, act quickly and call us on 01202 559922! We are currently offering a range of Landlord Offers and need property in the immediate future for our pre-qualified tenants.

Powis Real estate agents, have just celebrated their third anniversary. Ray Powis commented “It’s hard to believe it has been three years, we certainly did not expect to be the number one agent in Bh7 within such a short period of time. Covering the whole of the surrounding areas including Southbourne, and over the bridge into West Christchurch. We have seen the public really appreciated our family values and attention to detail. A strict sole agency ethos has meant, that one-off exclusive

feel to all of our instructions.” Juliet Powis went on to say that “We have a great team of people around us, with everyone happy to go the extra mile. We are both so appreciative of all they do and how we continue to push the boundaries of customer service.” Moving home doesn’t have to be a stressful experience, our calm professional and knowledgeable attitude, makes for a relaxed and informed process that often succeeds where others have failed.

CHARITY BIKE RIDE

Since February 2009, a group of friends has been tirelessly raising money for Cancer Research UK, in memory of their friend Marc Burrows. Marc was only 30 years old when he was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and tragically passed away just 6 weeks later. He was a semi professional footballer and loved to raise money for charity by taking part in various sporting events. To this day Marc holds the world record for the fastest ever goal scored at 2.5 seconds! As a youngster, he played for Portsmouth Football Club but ended his career playing for local team, Christchurch, in the Wessex League. Marc was the life and soul of every occasion and was a wellknown figure in the footballing community both locally and

216

the Isle of Wight, where he was born. His infectious smile was legendary! Each year we hold a memorial day at Christchurch Football Club. The day originally consisted of a football match with the teams made up of friends, family and former team mates. Over the years though, it became apparent more people wanted to be involved and so a football tournament seemed the way forward. The day itself has also grown and attracts, on average, 300 – 400 people from the local area, Dorset, Hampshire and the Isle of Wight. Along with the football, there’s also an auction, live music, kids entertainment, games and much more. The day brings the community together to have an enormous amount of fun whilst raising money

CHINESE FIRM CHOOSES ARENA IN POOLE

for charity. This year it’s our turn to raise money and awareness in memory of Marc for Cancer Research UK, so myself and Marc’s brother in law Stuart are going to take on the ‘Trans Provence’ in the South of France from the 1st September to 8th September 2012. The Trans Provence challenge is 7 days of Mountain Biking, riding 320km over 9500 meters of vertical ascent and 15200 meters of vertical descent. We start at Rochebrune which is 15km South-East of Gap and spend the first 2 days crossing Monges Massif, then into the Maritime Alps through Mercantour National Park until we reach Tinee Valley. Finally its 2 days through the Monte-Carlo Rallye country, then the final descent into Monaco.

Greens Combustion Limited, a subsidiary of Greens Holdings Limited, has this month moved to Arena Business Centre. The refinery and petrochemical company have occupied a large open plan office at the centre in Holyrood Close, Poole. Greens have opened this base to expand their product range into the refining and petrochemical market. Richard Withnall, Managing Director of Greens Combustion comments ‘Although not thought of as an engineering region, Dorset and the surrounding areas do have a sound compliment of engineering companies and resources. We hope to use these as the ambitious growth plans of Greens Combustion come to fruition.’ Richard concludes. Their search for the right premises took them from Southampton all the way down to Poole, with a shortlist of 10 providers, before Green’s eventually chose Arena Business Centre. ‘Choosing the right office space was essential for the team. Mike Wignall, Chairman of Greens Combustion, and I shortlisted offices as far afield as Southampton.’ Richard Withnall comments ‘The flexibility offered by Arena, the efficient and friendly support of the staff during

the difficult start-up phase and the value for money for such high-end office facilities was almost impossible to find elsewhere. This made our decision in choosing Arena as our office partners very straightforward.’ The Greens Holdings Group employ over 1,000 people world-wide in design, engineering and project management centres in UK, China and Singapore with further subsidiary offices in India and USA. They boast impressive manufacturing facilities in the UK and China totalling more than 100,000m2 workshops and 170,000m2 factories. Originally formed by Edward Green in 1833 and now listed on the Hong Kong stock exchange their principle product ranges are both fired and waste heat boilers as well as various waste heat recovery systems for both boiler and other thermal plant as well as diversifying into other areas such as owning and operating a power station to the manufacture of wind turbine columns. Greens Combustion’s activities will be worldwide and represents the ambition of the Group to extend further into the refinery and petrochemical market for their core boiler related products and combustion equipment.

BROADVIEW BLINDS HAVE A BLINDING IDEA

CONNELLS DONATES TO NSPCC

BROADVIEW Blinds in Poole are campaigning for better awareness about the childsafety features available for blinds. “Broadview have long made customers aware of blind safety, but now we want to broaden that message to as many people as possible,” says Tina Loveland of Broadview Blinds. “We are pushing home the safety benefits of cord cleats, electric operated blinds and easy break connectors – it is important to take these safety precautions if you have small children.” Like other seemingly innocuous household items, unfastened blind cords can be dangerous

Connells is delighted to announce it has donated over £1,800 to the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC). The money, which was raised at an event held by Connells for its senior staff, was recently presented to the NSPCC by Chief Executive Stuart Flavell. “We at Connells regularly donate to the NSPCC and have chosen to support this charity across our estate agency branch network,” says Stuart. “It is a pleasure to give this money to such a worthy cause and a well-known and successful charitable organisation.” The NSPCC is the UK’s leading charity specialising in child

to small children. “I am aware of a number of cases where children have become entangled in blind cords with very tragic consequences that could so easily have been avoided, ,” says David Simpson of Poole solicitors, Coles Miller. “As a parent with three young children of my own I commend Broadview for taking the initiative and making such positive steps to raise awareness of blind safety features.” As part of their campaign, Broadview Blinds are offering new customers free child-friendly modifications. “Like any responsible company, we make customers aware

of safety features before they purchase our products and if they opt for such features we will provide them free of charge,” says Tina Loveland of Broadview Blinds. “However, if clients who decided not to take us up on these safety options have had a change of mind or a change of circumstance, we will offer them the modifications for cost price – simple safety cleats cost just £1. “We also have a range of devices that will suit blinds supplied by other companies, should people wish to upgrade these to the safety standard we strive for.”

protection and the prevention of cruelty to children. The charity campaigns to change the law, provide ChildLine and the NSPCC helpline service, and works directly in communities running services for children and families. “We would like to thank Connells estate agency for its recent donation,” says Geraldine Harmon, Corporate Manager at the NSPCC. “Without the support of individuals and organisations such as Connells, we simply wouldn’t be able to run our services, which are so often a life line for children and young people. I look forward to continuing our relationship with Connells in the future.”

RECYCLE AND PROTECT THE ENVIRONMENT! Our products are made from 100% recycled plastic. Our aims are to help rebuild the environment by utilising what people would otherwise just throw away, and turn into a valuable product for everybody. Our plastic lumber has many practical & very useful properties & has an infinite range of different uses, some of which being are as decking, fencing, outdoor furniture, planters, gates, boardwalks, landscaping, beach huts, bollards, signage & construction etc. The list is endless. Due to its high strength and durability, it’s the perfect alternative to anything that has ever needed maintaining. It does not rot, split or splinter & is resistant to anything life throws at it. It can also be cut with a regular saw, drilled, nailed, screwed, routed & worked just as easily as wood. Its advantages over traditional materials are staggering! It’s a great investment, as it never needs to be replaced due to its high strength and durability, therefore it quickly pays for itself in the long run. In short, it’s worry free! The facts being, if we can help towards the prevention of unnecessary tree logging, save energy & minimise the amount of plastic waste going into landfill, we then begin to find ourselves a Green ‘Win Win’ Solution!

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.

Q A

Email gardendoctor@stewarts.co.uk Why are the stems and leaves of my tomato plant (grown in the greenhouse) all twisted, I have checked and there is no signs of insect damage? If as you say there aren’t any signs of pests the most probable cause would be a hormone weedkiller. Now as it seems unlikely that you have deliberately sprayed the plant there are two possibilities. One, that you have used sprayer that had not been properly washed out or secondly, that you have stored bags of lawn weedkiller over winter in the greenhouse. as they can leave fumes behind.

A lot of the leaves of my Mandevilla have gone yellow. I can see no sign of insects, what has caused the problem? Look at the leaves – if they appear to have no sign of pest or disease and they are from the lower shoots or near the stem then it’s just natural wastage. If the problem is affecting the young growth then it’s a problem with feeding. The plant is best grown in John Innes No.3 and given a monthly feed with a balanced liquid fertiliser between April and September.

ISLAND BATHROOMS THROUGH THE YEARS

A year best remembered for high levels of unemployment, double-figure inflation, and widespread social discontent, especially amongst the working class most affected by Thatcher’s unpopular economic policy. But for David Lees-Bell, 1981 was a landmark year for an altogether different reason. Years of working on bitter cold building sites as a plumber was, he realised, no longer for him. So he packed up his tools and took a risk. Amongst a backdrop of widespread recession, and with a wife and two baby children at home, he decided that his best option was to set up on his own. Near a now long-gone traffic island on Holdenhurst Road, Island Showers was born. Fast-forward thirty-one years, and David runs the largest independent bathroom retailer in Dorset and Hampshire. Island Bathrooms is still very much a part of Holdenhurst Road, although the original site, unlike its past tenant, is no longer standing. The present showroom, likened at least a handful of times each week to Doctor 50

Who’s Tardis, is a mazy collection of rather inspirational bathroom settings. In fact, there are more than one hundred displays spread across three floors. Perhaps most noticeable is how each display is clean, clearly well thoughtout, and representative of all that is possible in today’s bathroom. There are no dusty cobwebs covering ageing fixtures and fittings here. Prices are clearly displayed, and there are plenty of impressive-looking bathrooms for the more cost-conscious customer. Staff are all experts in their field, with several having worked with David for more than a decade. Indeed, he himself quips: actually, we’ve got some ageing fixtures and fittings here after all. If that’s the case, then he also has some younger fixtures on hand to help ensure Island Bathrooms stays around for at least another thirty-one years. His son, Elliot, is in charge of the marketing, and the upcoming ecommerce side of the business. It’s exciting times ahead, apparently, with a state-of-the-art ecommerce platform only weeks away from launching.


then now Elliot is confident that giving the customers the opportunity to browse through the many hundreds of bathroom products available from home will radically improve business, especially in bringing in new customers that may perhaps have discounted Island Bathrooms before. He tells of a common theme amongst new customers: they come in, look around, then realise that the prices are as good as any they’ve seen online, better than anything else locally, and the options available are far greater. Elliot hopes that having an opportunity to challenge these preconceptions via the Internet will mean potential customers come and visit when they might not have before. There is also, of course, the opportunity for growth on a national scale via this new medium. Whilst the Internet is clearly very much a part of the future of this, and indeed most businesses nowadays, it is just as clear that the showroom is still being treated with the same care and attention as ever. Two dedicated in-store bathroom fitters are tasked with the never-ending challenge of changing, moving and updating the one hundred-plus bathroom settings, and if a display doesn’t ‘work’ it is quickly replaced with something that does.

This relentless quest for retail perfection is admirable, but it is also a reminder that for all the doom-and-gloom about the demise of the high street, there are plenty of excellent businesses that spend their time figuring out exactly what their customers want and giving it to them, rather than stagnating in the wider economic situation. One thing is clear. The bathroom should be a haven of calm; a room that despite its often small proportions allows its occupant to relax and unwind. Those luxury ‘wow-factor’ items, such as wetroom floors, frameless glass shower enclosures, waterfall taps and digital showers are no longer out of the financial reach of many of us. In fact, everything seems to be rather affordable when compared with the cost of a new kitchen - so much so that the real difficulty is deciding exactly what to choose. That then, is where the expertise of a bathroom specialist comes in. If you’re thinking about a new bathroom, visit Island Bathrooms on Holdenhurst Road, Bournemouth.

FAMILY HOLIDAY TO REMEMBER Whether you're looking for a bargain sun break, or an action-packed trip on home turf, there are plenty of options for a family holiday. We round up some of the best.

Natural marvels in Montenegro Best for: All the family The term jaw-dropping isn't one to be used lightly, but when describing Montenegro's idyllic landscapes it feels perfectly appropriate. Dramatic mountains, glassy waters and even rainforest (one of the last in Europe) characterise this often overlooked destination. But with new direct scheduled flights from Gatwick having launched this year, Montenegro won't stay a secret for long. Most tourists head to the Bay of Kotor, where calm waters take a winding path into the Adriatic Sea. The ninth-century town is peppered with beautiful squares (where kids gather to play football in the late afternoon sun), lively cafes and great options for selfcatering accommodation. The locals are extremely family-friendly and children are well catered for; there are plenty of play parks, supermarkets are reasonably priced, and the ice creams are dirt cheap! To make the most of the destination you'll need to hire a car - although be prepared for some narrow coastal roads. One of Montenegro's best child-friendly beaches is Blue Horizons on the Lustica peninsula. Olive and cypress trees border the sandy beach where you can paddle out for 50ft before it gets deep. In terms of infrastructure, Montenegro is still a little rough around the edges but that only lends to its appeal. With its majestic beauty and warm soul, it's an undeniably charming place. If you want to give your kids the kind of family holiday you recall with fond, rose-tinted nostalgia, this could be it.

Explore Montenegro www.montenegroholidays.com /020 7118 1002) offers seven nights' accommodation at Kotor Vista in Kotor from ÂŁ1,469 (based on 2 adults and 2 children sharing), including flights and car hire. Flights depart London Gatwick to Tivat every Sunday and Wednesday.


ON A HIGH IN BASILICATA BEST FOR: OLDER TEENAGERS

HIGHLAND ADVENTURE IN LOCHABER BEST FOR: ACTIVE FAMILIES

A QUIET SIDE OF TENERIFE BEST FOR: YOUNGER KIDS

While young children are relatively easy to please on holiday (give them sun, sea and sandcastles), taciturn teens are slightly trickier to tackle. One thing guaranteed to get them talking, however, is a trip with a sense of adventure. Located in the arch of Italy's boot, Basilicata has always been popular with domestic tourists who come in search of mountain villages, unspoilt beaches and good, home-cooked food. But for British visitors, it's still relatively off the beaten track. Film director Francis Ford Coppola, an honorary citizen of the region, spent many childhood holidays here with his Italian family, and still speaks nostalgically about his love of local delicacy lampascioni (wild, bitter-tasting onions). The recent opening of his luxury hotel, Palazzo Margherita, a converted 19th century villa in sleepy hill-top village Bernalda, has even attracted the likes of Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel to the region. A much more affordable accommodation option can be found just down the road at the family-run Giamperduto Hotel, where apartment-style rooms surround a fragrant, citrus tree-filled garden. A sandy beach with sun loungers is a fiveminute drive from the hotel but older teens will probably prefer a visit to Castelmezzano, home to one of the tallest (888 metres) and longest (1,550 metres) zip-wires in the world. Suspended between two villages in the Lucanian Dolomites, the aptly-named Flight Of The Angel sends passengers hurtling at speeds of up to 70mph across a steep, forest-covered valley. And while the minimum age restriction is 16, there's no maximum, making this a multi-generational activity (so far, the oldest passenger to make the flight was aged 85). More than anything, it's the ideal way to end your trip on a high.

Outdoorsy types will truly be in their element in Scotland's Lochaber, known as the 'Outdoor Capital of the UK'. Just a few hours north west of Glasgow, you'll find rolling hills, thick forests, roaring rivers and the cloud-skimming peaks of Ben Nevis. All can be explored by foot, boat, bike or even kayak. Rockhopper Scotland offer trips in stable and easy-to-use kayaks, exploring Lochaber's stunning coastline (starting from £40 per person). Teenagers can travel alone, while younger kids can share with adults. Whatever route or challenge rating you go for, breathtaking scenery and wildlife are guaranteed (look out for cheeky otters and seals). But no trip would be complete without a visit to the Ben Nevis range. Take the gondola to the top and enjoy afternoon tea at Snowgoose Restaurant - a perfect reward for anybody brave enough to complete the High Wire Adventure course at the mountain's foot (family tickets from £64). The course will see you shimmy, swing, clamber and leap between platforms up in the trees. Though you're safety-harnessed throughout, it's definitely hair-raising! There are lots of accommodation options, but Glenuig Inn - nestled in a sheltered bay at the centre of the picturesque Sound of Arisaig - is a real treat. Owner Steve Macfarlane is passionate about the environment and the award-winning inn runs entirely on renewable energy - he'll be happy to explain how it all works, too. Look out for the Glenfinnan viaduct on the drive. The kids will recognise it from Harry Potter and co's train journeys to Hogwarts! And don't miss the delicious home-made food. After all that activity and fresh air, you'll have built up an appetite!

Tenerife has always been popular with sunseekers. Just a four-hour flight from London, the Spanish island is a safe option for a family beach holiday. But if you want to escape crowded beaches covered in a carpet of Union Jack-emblazoned towels, head to the more peaceful Costa Adeja in the south of the island. The seaside Dream Hotel Gran Tacande exudes enough calm to temper even the most boisterous children. A five-star resort, it offers generously-sized rooms and modern comforts, along with warm Canarian hospitality. There are also lots of activities to keep kids entertained. While grown-ups can book into the spa, kids will love making new friends at the hotel's free daytime childcare centre. The resort also has two large outdoor pools and a smaller baby pool. If you prefer sea water, however, the idyllic Playa del Duque beach is directly next door. While the sand is softer than elsewhere on the island (it's imported), the beach rarely feels overcrowded. Although there are lots of good restaurants in the area, Hotel Dream Tacande offers a very tempting menu of dishes - both in taste and cost, with half-board packages available. Whether you spend the entire week poolside, or treat the kids to excursions, you can be assured you'll return from your holiday feeling thoroughly relaxed.

Children’s bedrooms are not only havens for sleep (even though your children may disagree they are at all!) they are also havens for play. The latter is especially so if living accommodation is limited and so toys need homing in the bedroom. Most children thrive on having a space to truly call their own and often value some alone time from an early age, so make the most of this blossoming desire for independence and make their bedroom a space to enjoy. For older children, include a desk or work area for homework or computer work that they can do in peace. For younger children, storage is key to ensure the bedroom doesn’t resemble a dumping ground.

For all children, involve them in their choice of decor. It doesn’t necessarily mean you will oblige all their creative ideas, but incorporate a few if not all, so that your child will take pride in their bedroom and hopefully respect and so keep it tidy. We love the bolder earthy tones used by Vertbaudet in their room sets, rather than the obvious choice of blue. For girls we can’t help but love getting carried away with all things girly, so pink is a real hit for most mums and their daughters in our office. But if you’re not keen on the obvious choice of pink, then opt for a neutral colour for the walls and add touches of your child’s favourite colour through accessories.

HIDING PLACES Storage is an essential part of every family home, particularly so when it comes to children’s toys. But nowadays storage need not and should not mean stacks of lifeless clear plastic boxes piled one on top of the other filled with toys. Designers are seriously turning their hand to innovative and funky new ideas to make storage a feature in it’s own right in a child’s bedroom or play room, whilst still performing exceptionally well it’s primary function of storage. Whatever, storage solution you choose, we highly recommend you embark on a toy de-clutter first because it is highly likely that you’ll find plenty of unused toys, well below your child’s age range. This will ensure you only buy only the essential amount of storage.

THE WORLD ACCORDING TO GEOFF

In the previous issue I was telling you about my time spent as a craft worker during the 80’s and in particular about two of the craft show ’Organisers’, one of them being the delightful and hapless Henri More and his hysterical foray from craft worker to failed Organiser. He was a ladies glove salesman from Guildford who had somehow wandered into a time machine and found his way from the genteel environment of the Edwardian period to Maggie’s brutal England of shell suited materialistic legions. From the early 1900’s he had brought with him a talent for making elegant hand woven basket ware which he sold at various shows. This story concerns his sortie with a fellow crafty to the imposing tented sprawl that is the Bath and West show in Shepton Mallet. The show patrons duly delivered their verdicts swarming sure-footedly past their adjacent displays with barely a sideways glance. In the face of this massive four day long public rejection the mood steadily darkened, not really helped by having to return each evening to his chum’s cramped caravan to prepare their pot noodles followed by an uncomfortable nights repose. Their wretched excursion reached it’s regrettable climax on the homeward journey when in the black of night and in driving rain the car engine, having sensed the prevailing mood, dutifully expired on the A3 just outside Guildford. The cheerless weekend had taken it’s final liberty with the caravan owner who extricated himself from the driver’s seat and disappeared into the gloom. Aware as he was of his limitations as a mechanical engineer Henri felt he should at least offer up some moral comfort to his friend so he too slipped into the night. The scandalous panorama laid out for him was the ultimate snub for his cherished work. Almost his entire stock of lovingly hand crafted basketwork had been seized from inside the caravan and plonked on the rain lashed tarmac in order to cone off their beleaguered entourage. However, not having sold one single item at the show he was heartened by the interest shown from a passing motorist in a very nice Ali Baba basket with some unusual beadwork. All of human life was certainly well represented amidst the craft worker ranks. There was the ‘Fudge Lady’ who overnighted with her dog in the back of her van where she also just happened to keep the ingredients. There was a very talented, if highly strung potter, who after a disastrous show in the grounds of a stately home was being gently chided by a very smartly attired man for driving over a flower border. The local paper would later record that the ’Lord of the Manor’ had disgracefully been punched on the nose by an irate craft worker during a heated exchange over some mutilated lupins. I was once exhibiting at the ’Southsea Show’ during an atrocious rain storm when the bloke next to me suddenly appeared with two wooden planks and popped them down behind his stall as duckboards. This fashion caught on quickly and in no time at all there was a worker ant style column of exhibitors trooping back with said planks, similarly waterlogged I joined the column to find the source of supply. Although technically it was conspiracy to grand theft the dismantling of the spectator stands around the equestrian arena was again testament to the resourceful nature of the Crafty. I shall leave you with Nick Grant, a watercolour artist and true legend on the circuit, a man whose lunatic antics have long since passed into craft folklore. During a slow show in Hove we nipped down to the nearest pub, completely at odds with his African heritage he spurned walking, so we took his clapped out Capri Ghia and with his usual panache he abandoned it at the door of the Pub. As he held court in the saloon bar a surly faced traffic warden plodded in, parking ticket at the ready. This was the signal for Nick to suddenly dispense with his normal broad Nottinghamshire accent and launch into some insane multi national gibberish accessorised with frantic arm waving. Unbelievably he escaped prosecution by convincing the official that he had just arrived from Uganda and was seeking directions to the Job Centre.

Get those wellies out, I think you might need them. We’re on countdown to Camp Bestival which has now become a firm annual fixture in the Willingham calendar. This will be our fourth year, and whilst the numbers swell significantly year on year, making it more daunting for littles ones, it is still amazing that it all happens just a few miles down the road at Lulworth Castle. And therefore it would be rude not to. I can’t believe we are more than half way through the year already. Before we know it, we’ll be heading off to Lymington for my husband’s, Gary, own festival, Windfest Re-Tuned on 14-16 September which sees its first time as a fully- fledged camping three-dayer after 13 years at Sandbanks. A serious amount of work is going into making this a very special festival unlike any other in the UK (and there are a LOT of festivals!). We also reckon the summer is bound to come late and we’ll be enjoying balmy evenings come September. What will the new-look Windfest be like? Well, try to envisage an intimate, Bohemian boutique family-friendly festival with an action sports core, a quality music line up, bars, comedy, great local wholesome food, silent discos, glamping in yurts and bell tents for the Boden mummies, and literally acres for running around freely in safety, flying kites, riding bikes, yoga and heaps of other sports to try, on and off the water. All set around the beautiful backdrop of the 18th century Pylewell House and centuries old oak trees. We are pleased that Wave 105 FM were keen to be Windfest’s radio partner with Magners and Red Bull also pledging their commercial support. So watch this space for more news as it comes.....or go to www.windfest. co.uk for latest updates and to purchase tickets. It’s funny how some years seem to attract ‘themes’ of experiences. Already in 2012 I have been to two major motorsport events - and as much as I love my VW Beetle Convertible - I am really not a petrol head. As a gift to Gary for his 40th birthday, I organised a trip to Monaco for the F1 Grand Prix. We did, what would be relatively termed, the ‘cheap seats’ (stay in Nice, train to Monaco and Grandstand tickets) but I wouldn’t have changed a thing. To be honest a lot of it went over my head; I wore a pair of foam ear plugs AND my 8-year-old’s bright green ear defenders - good loud music is one thing but I wasn’t prepared to come back with tinnitus caused by fast cars! Not knowing any sign language I couldn’t hear a thing to ask what was going on but just had to jump up in excitement when everyone else did. What made the trip for me was getting on the guest list to the Red Bull Energy Station party. And those guys really know how to throw one; Seb Fontaine on the decks, free bar all night (boy did I pay for that - Vodka Red Bull hangovers are evil especially when mixed with motor racing), professional dancers, gold toilets, and an electric atmosphere set off by the twinkling lights of the superyachts in the marina and the Monaco hills around us. Amazing. My second motorsport event was Goodwood Festival of Speed. Again, we were surrounded by the great and good of the motor industry, past, present and future. It was fun for people watching; grown men excited like small boys staring for hours at expanses of metal. I gravitated to the bandstand to listen to the live jazz surrounded by some lovely old classic cars and with the Red Arrows performing overhead. Another good day. On the motoring theme, and for my blatant plug of the month, I’m going to big up our fab client, Breeze Volkswagen and the brand new version of the Volkswagen Beetle which was recently launched. At Liz Lean PR we’ve been busy organising journalists reviews of the new Bug and so far it’s going down very well indeed. The downside for me however is that it makes my lovely three year old Beetle ‘so last season’! Well, enough of my rambling. Grab every chance you can for that special experience and try a new event, sport or activity which you’d never considered being ‘your thing’. You just might surprise yourself! 126

‘Til next time.......

Somewhere between the sunniest March on record and the wettest June ever, we appear to have lost our sense of national sporting pride. It was really noticeable during Euro 2012. I cannot recall a football tournament where the nation has had such a low sense of expectation. The usual feverish build up in the press did not happen as it was overshadowed by the Diamond Jubilee celebrations. By the third group round game and the appearance of Rooney it started to gain momentum but we never quite reached the level of excitement that we have in previous years. Maybe “England Expects” this year was a reference to the inevitable penalty shoot out? It did give the guys a Visit England the chance to give us all a laugh when they tweeted within minutes “England lose on penalties. For more on our culture and traditions go to http://www.visitengland.com” As I write this Wimbledon is coming to the end of its first week and Andy Murray has just made history with a match that finished at 11.02pm. But still the hyperbole has failed to reach the level it usually would by this point. Perhaps we are saving ourselves up for the Olympics. After what seems like an eternity the 2012 Games are finally here. I still can’t quite believe after a seven year build up that we are finally days away from the greatest sportsmen and women in the world competing on our doorstep. I find it sad that one of our biggest sporting stars will not be given the chance to play an active role. David Beckham is said to be “disappointed” that he has been overlooked by the Team GB selectors to play for his country in front of the world. He was a key part of the delegation which successfully that went to Singapore and brought the games to Great Britain seven years ago. He was good enough to be the face to bring the flame from Greece and light the torch in Cornwall at the start of its tour. I am not saying that his involvement in the bid automatically entitles him the right to play football for Team GB any more than it does Lord Sebastian Coe to lace up some running shoes and have another go at the 1500 metres, but if there is anybody in the country with a clear passion for England it is him. Many would argue that he has had more than his fair chance to do that in his international career or that he is past his prime but I feel his contribution to the effort to bring the games to this country at least make him worthy of one more chance to represent it. He said after the announcement that “there will be no bigger supporter of the team than me”. Hopefully we can all find the time to get behind our athletes and support them in the coming weeks.

We now move on with MOVE ON... within the Industry and make it have much larger offices over two where knowledge & expertise really makes the difference. better andexperience, stronger. floors and have grown from five to The first thing I learnt was nine employees. I needed to have three heads. We became known as the Q&A The Technician, the Manager expert for House magazine and CHARLES and the Entrepreneur.

people looking to go start up their own businesses. The technician was easy; I had been doing the role for over 14 years and I had an amazing wealth of experience. The Manager I have learnt along the way and I am still learning. I like to think I am a fair boss and have a happy team. I do have an open door policy and I am always interested in new ideas. When things go wrong, which they can from time to time, we look at how it happened, what we learnt from it and what do we need to put in place to ensure it never happens again. The entrepreneur side of me is me just wanting to be different, to not be afraid of standing out and trying new things, but I also believe in my new ideas 200% and they are always to me calculated risks. In 2010 we created Landlord to landlords Sales (L2Lsales), the first UK Estate Agency for Landlords and only Landlords.

I also present a power point presentation to a group of Investors each month locally giving a brief update on the local market and legislations. (if you are interested in more details please email me). 2012 has been a very active year so far. I was fortunate enough to reach the semi-finals of the Dorset Women in Business Awards for ‘Small Business’ and ‘Entrepreneur’ and the finals for ‘Life Time Achievement’, I do feel honoured to have reached those stages. Later this year, I have been asked to support Wessex Cancer Trust in a charity event called ‘Business Come Dancing’ where I will train with a professional ballroom Dancer for five weeks and perform ‘the dance’ in front of an audience. Having never tried ballroom dancing I am both excited and nervous. I do work very long hours, if I am not working until late at the office, then I am at home working by remote access to my computer

GINA Q - If there was anything you change in Bournemouth what would it be? A -I would join it together with some of the surrounding areas to make it a city; This would hopefully attract new people to come here, more exciting events to happen and help the tourism flourish resulting in more jobs being created and unemployment levels going down.

ADELLE Q. What’s the best thing that’s happened to you this year ? A. I was lucky enough to be employed within the field of lettings - my dream career and being at Move On Rentals makes it even better. (Money is an okay for payment for this favour however chocolate would be even better :)

SALLY Q. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be and why? A - I would choose to live in Barbados, I was on holiday there in 2009, there are plenty of beautiful beaches, warm crystal clear water to swim in every day and no shortage of rum! Oh and the weather is great, but it rains and the sun comes out straight after - perfect!

CHRISTINE Q - What’s the best thing that’s happened to you this year ? A - Another year older and still alive and well and counting my blessings!!!!


at work. It is rare to be off my laptop before midnight – I have an incredibly understanding and supportive husband (and it means he is in control of the TV remote). 15 Years ago, I was a single mum of three daughters for nearly five years with a large mortgage to pay each month before food, clothes and fuel in the car, times were really tough. I worked full time and put myself through night school and later went on to qualify as an Accountant, and gain two diplomas

I am a half glass full girl and I believe if you believe enough, you can make it happen. I have now been in the in the Industry for 21 years, owned Moved On for 7 years and have been a private landlord for 28 years. We have just ordered our 3rd branded car (I am told this now constitutes as a fleet) and I

I own and operate a buy to let portfolio and have been in this market for the last ten years. I use a number of Managing Agents to look after the properties and have used ‘Move On’ for the last four years. As a Managing Agent ‘Move On’ has proved to be extremely professional in the way they look after my properties across the whole of the tenancy agreements. The owner Sharon has installed a great culture within the business and all the staff are prepared to go that extra mile for both landlords and tenants.

I then I needed to know the manual regularly pinch myself, I love what side to ensure the computer was I do and I still enjoy learning, some correct!! The toughest part was of the new ideas coming through not being able to be at home more within the property Industry from with my children.

I recently read older, but I would be lying if I didn’t somewhere that most successful question myself at times.

“I have dealt with Move On Rentals who have looked at both renting my properties and have also let me the property that I now live in. Overall I have been very impressed with both services. They have always looked after me as a landlord and also as a tenant... nothing has ever been too much trouble. I also deal with many other letting agents around the area but I believe that the service I have had from Move On Rentals is the most professional and reliable”

CHALLENGE

a nation we “ As spend more on

childcare than most others in western Europe, yet lots of parents are unable to work because childcare costs make it uneconomic.

In these tough economic times, being able to afford childcare is getting harder and harder for working parents. A survey has revealed that more than a third (38%) of parents have thought about quitting their job because of childcare costs. That comes as no surprise when you consider that the Daycare Trust's 2012 Childcare Costs Survey found that the average cost for a year's childcare was around £5,000, or about £100 for 25 hours a week at a nursery, and £93 for the same amount of time at a childminder's. The Trust, which is the national childcare charity, says childcare costs have increased "significantly" from last year, by up to 5.8% for nurseries and up to 3.9% for childminders. In fact, a report by Tory MP Elizabeth Truss last month found that childcare costs swallow up 27% of UK parents' net income on average. In contrast, the average family in the Netherlands pays only 10% of its net income to childminders. The survey the Daycare Trust carried out with Mumsnet for National Childcare Week found that 12% of working parents have left a job because of childcare costs, 20% have turned down a job due to childcare costs, and 37% pay the same or more for their childcare as they do for their rent or mortgage. Justine Roberts, co-Founder of Mumsnet, says: "These figures show just how serious the impact of high childcare costs is. Anand Shukla, chief executive of the Daycare Trust, stresses that childcare costs are a huge barrier for parents who want to work. "Affordable, high-quality childcare is good for child development, enables families to be financially self-sufficient, and ensures businesses have access to the widest possible pool of talent," he says. While nurseries and childminders are the most popular forms of childcare in the UK, estimates suggest there may be more than 30,000 nannies working in England alone. But the recession has, of course, hit nanny employers too, and a recent survey by Nannytax (a payroll provider for nanny 152

employers), found there had been a marked increase in the demand for part-time nannies. Of the 1,244 nanny employers surveyed, 57% said they employed their nanny part-time, and only 7.8% of parents with nannies said they employed them on a full-time, live-in basis. "In places with high childcare costs and long commutes, some families choose to use nannies," says Shukla, "but what they're doing increasingly is sharing the cost with another family locally. "For many families when they're looking at the cost of full-time childcare or having a nanny, which gives you more flexibility, they're choosing a part-time nanny." Shukla says the free childcare of up to 15 hours a week for three- and four-year-olds that has been made available to parents in most of the UK over the last 10 years means the childcare situation has changed dramatically in recent years. “It’s helping parents,” he says, “and things he points out that the free childcare isn’t for the whole year and

often won’t be for as long as a working parent needs, or exactly when they need it. "These arrangements can be really difficult for parents to make work alongside their jobs, and on top of that you have the highest are better than they were. “The problem is that we’re nowhere near where we need to be to support parents.” Childcare costs in the world." Gaps in children's achievement start to appear from the age of two, Shukla points out, and this means good-quality childcare is particularly important from an early age. "If families can go out to work with their children in childcare, it means they can bring in money to support their own family, rather than having to give up work and potentially go on benefits. "If people are having to give up work because they can't get affordable childcare, it's a real waste of skills and talent." The Trust wants a reversal in cuts to the childcare element of Working Tax Credit, which has cost some families around £500 a year, plus more free childcare. And certainly the Daycare Trust/Mumsnet survey found that 77% of parents didn't think the Government does enough to support parents with the cost of childcare. Shukla stresses that childcare isn't just about getting the cheapest, it's about getting high-quality care, which research shows makes a huge difference to children's emotional, language and social development. "The key is the quality of the childcare, rather than the type of setting," he says. "High-quality early education has a major impact." Shukla points out that the theme for this year's National Childcare week is Families in Focus, which aims to get family members involved with their child's childcare setting. "It's a great opportunity to get more parental engagement and other family members involved in childcare setting activities, from going on trips, helping with reading, or even letting a nursery use your professional skills," says Shukla. "It's good for the community, good for the childcare setting, and good for the children as well."

Returning a security deposit to your tenants... a vital checklist When your tenant moves out you want to make sure that you compile a comprehensive check out report that will detail the condition of the property before a new tenant moves in. This should be a comparative document to the original inventory. 1. Make sure you provide your tenant with an inventory on move in. This should be compiled by a professional inventory clerk, this will give you a third party perspective on the property and not the perspective of the landlord or tenant. Make further notes if needed and ensure a signed copy is returned to you or your agent after move in. 2. The inventory should detail every room, condition, and the furniture in it and provide photos as evidence. Inventories are not just for furnished properties, they are for all letting properties. What if your tenant damaged the paint work? What if the carpets were heavily stained on check out? If you don’t have the evidence to prove the condition of the property when let you will have no weight to your proposed deposit deductions.

3. ALWAYS ensure the deposit is protected with a deposit protection scheme. This is essential in protecting your interests as a landlord and ensuring the rights of the tenant are protected. If you do not comply with this you open yourself up to potential legal action. 4. A third party check out should be done on exit. The tenant may want to be present for this so that the condition can be agreed on check out. The property should be left clean and tidy and in the condition it was let, minus fair wear and tear. As a landlord some appreciation must be had for the fact that the property has been lived in for 6 months at least and the tenant has the right to use it as their home. It is not acceptable to leave rubbish/tenant furnishings in the property and leave it unclean. 5. If you had a professional clean done prior to the start of the tenancy you must keep the invoices and receipts as evidence that you expect the property to be returned to you in the same clean standard. This would also reply to carpet cleaning, window cleaning and any other professional services such as gardening.

6. Don’t miss outside areas. The tenants are expected to care for the garden if there is one and the tenancy agreement used should explicitly state this. If not the tenant may be liable for some gardening costs. 7. If your tenant does not agree to the deposit deductions, stay amenable. The dispute service can be a long process and take several months to resolve. It is much better to agree to negotiate terms prior to this and use the service as a last effort to resolve the dispute. You will need to submit your evidence if the case is looked at by a deposit protection service. A good, local, knowledgeable letting agent managing your property will have the skills to be able to arrange and deal with all of the above for you. YO U home

SHE WHO DARES Rachel talks to HOUSE about her new venture as well as how she surmounted the physical and emotional battles of business failure.


Dragon’s Den contestant, Rachel Lowe, caught the nation’s interest with her Destination London board game. However, the success was not to last and Rachel lost it all and suffered a nervous breakdown. However, resilient and tenacious Rachel triumphed over adversity and is now back on top with a great new business venture She Who Dares. I first knew of Dragon’s Den when Tony Greatbatch, who was head of Enterprise at Portsmouth University at the time, showed me a cut out from a national newspaper for a new TV show for entrepreneurs seeking investment. We had no idea how the show was structured, and to be honest, I thought it would be exciting to be on telly. Little did I know what lay in store! The day of filming was nerve wracking and after my pitch, I was feeling quite pleased with myself, thinking they would love it and ALL want to invest in my business. Then came the line of interrogations! Doug Richard in particular gave me a grilling on my numbers and I really struggled as I wasn’t allowed to take my business plan in with me and I wasn’t very good at presenting my numbers from memory. Peter Jones felt I was going through a learning curve, Simon Woodroof through it was great but not an investment for him, Duncan Bannatyne didn’t think a launch with only PR behind it would work and Rachel Elnaugh said there was no way I could compete with Monopoly. I thought a launch platform and order from Hamleys Toy Store was strong, plus I had the game in production using money I had raised from sponsorship. I was gutted, and admit I cried the whole way home on the train. I felt embarrassed and was dreading the time that it would go on telly.

It was a devastating time when the recession hit. We had an edition that a lot of money had gone into and retail listings for Christmas. The game was attached to a movie release, and the movie got moved, so we lost those listings and couldn’t bridge the gap between Christmas 2008 and the following July. Under normal circumstances, with such a secure deal, the bank would have bridged that gap, but they didn’t. BBC Panorama filmed a documentary with me called Banks Behaving Badly, as my bank had been granted £20 billion of Government money which was supposed to filter through to companies like mine, but didn’t. It was a very dark time for me. Not only did my business go into administration after 6 years of solid work building it, but also I lost my home, my car, everything I had worked for and faced inevitable bankruptcy. Shareholders lost money and I felt responsible, even though I was powerless to control what was happening. The whole situation got on top of me and I became very ill. I lost a lot of weight when I had my breakdown and it took a long time for me to recover both mentally and physically. I know it all sounds very dramatic, but this is the reality, you put your heart and soul into something and as an entrepreneur you are often required to personally guarantee bank borrowing, and if things don’t work out, you can lose everything. Some people say that business is not personal, but it was very personal to me. When the BBC Panorama Documentary was screened, it generated a lot of interest for the Destination brand. One of the bidders was a very successful businessman called Simon Dolan. During the Administration process he advised me that it could take quite sometime (and he was right!), and suggested we set up something new in the mean time to help me to get back on my feet and to re-build my confidence. When we had a meeting about. Destination, I had also mentioned another brand I wanted to launch one day called SHE WHO DARES. The brand would be about never giving up and the products would be given in recognition of something she has done. Simon liked this idea and so She Who Dares UK Ltd was set up and I started my road to recovery.

I worked from home until I felt confident enough to be around people again and take an office at Lakeside North Harbour. I spent quite some time doing research and development, product sourcing and all the things that are required to launch a new brand. Along the way, a deal was done with the Administrators for Destination, and on Christmas Eve 2010 the contract was signed and She Who Dares UK Ltd acquired the rights to the Destination brand to take it forward. Simon is sole investor, and there is no bank funding required. We have plans to re-launch Destination Suffolk and Destination South Africa which were the last two editions that I had developed. In early 2011 the company signed a new license with Warner Bros to do a new version of Destination Hogwarts in time for the final film, which was launched at the London Film Museum, this is now available in Toys R Us, Debenhams, Harrods, Amazon, Play. com etc (it is so good to see the games back on the shelves!) … and the most exciting news of all is that we signed a deal with the London 2012 Olympic Games for an Olympic edition of my game: Destination London 2012! We now also have a stunning collection developed for SHE WHO DARES, the fragrance bottle and cap have been made bespoke and the brand will be launched later this summer. All of my experiences in life and especially in business have lead to the two-year development of my new brand SHE WHO DARES. The brand development itself has been a journey for me, not only in learning a new industry and developing a fragrance from scratch, but also the brand message, a statement which I firmly believe in: ‘Never give up – Nothing is impossible’. I feel so proud to be able to say all of this, and I truly believe that if you are passionate about something and you believe in it, you can turn anything around. Some of the most successful people in the world have been bankrupt and lost everything at one point in their journey.

The lessons learned & the experience makes you stronger.

After feeling sorry for myself, I decided I wasn’t going to let it get me down, so I continued with my launch plans for Destination London in Hamleys Toy Store and guess what?... It was their best selling product in their entire store that Christmas and out-sold Monopoly! I then went on to create 21 editions of Destination which were stocked by Toys R Us, Debenhams, WH Smith, Harrods, Argos, Amazon, to name a few. I think that all of the Dragon’s are nice people in reality. The show is great entertainment and a great platform for anyone who has a business idea and needs investment. I would say to anyone who is considering it ‘what have you got to lose? If your pitch gets screened on national telly, it is priceless TV exposure - for free.

I think as an entrepreneur it is almost in your blood not to give up. You may have set-backs, make mistakes, get into a pickle… but you know deep down that nothing is impossible and that you just have to keep going. I had to get myself better first, emotionally and physically and I do believe that what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger! My children are very much the prime reason for getting up each morning and embracing each day. They lost everything too when RTL Games went down. I feel in some way that they may have taken heart from the experience and in life they will also never give up, they have seen that no matter what life throws at you, you can carry on and make things better.

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

sHape up

time to detox

If you’ve been living under a rock - or in the land of good taste – this year, no doubt the new buzz phrase ‘Scouse Brow’ will have evaded your attention. The bad news is that you can run, but you can’t hide from the most terrifying beauty trend to hit the high street salon since the ‘vajazzle’.

Feeling sluggish or out of sync? Having skin problems, aches and pains, or digestive problems? Straying from your healthier habits lately? Having trouble kicking off your weight loss? It might be time for a Body Detox. Practiced for centuries by many cultures around the world — including ayurvedic and Chinese medicine systems — detoxification is about resting, cleaning and nourishing the body from the inside out. By removing and eliminating toxins, then feeding your body with healthy nutrients, detoxifying can help protect you from disease and renew your ability to maintain optimum health.

Whilst the trend followers showcasing the scouse brow have no shame resembling an attack with a permanent marker pen I advise a more subtle approach to working with this facial feature to enhance and frame the eye area. So my first piece of advice – leave it to the professionals. This will only prevent you having to sit tight and wait whilst you let over plucked eyebrows re-grow - the phrase ‘a watched pot never boils springs to mind’. Visit a reputable salon offering a variety of eyebrow treatments. Although tinting the eyebrows can often unnerve clients this is a great way of adding volume and definition to a brow without a radical colour change. Note - a good salon will always patch test prior to any tint application. So once you have created the colour you want its time to shape the brows. A variety of methods including waxing, plucking and threading can be implemented to achieve the same outcome –your therapist can advise which method will suit you best. Taking into account your facial features, the natural shape of your brow and of course your wishes, your therapist can create beautifully groomed brows, opening up and enhancing your eye area. Although we commonly say eyebrows are sisters and not twins, a well-shaped brow will bring a symmetrical harmony to the face that from only £7 is an essential in salon treatment.

Here’s How to kick start your detox … 1. Eat clean! Include plenty of organically-grown fresh fruits and vegetables into your diet. Beets, radishes, artichokes, cabbage, broccoli, spirulina, chlorella, and seaweed are excellent detoxifying foods. 2. Cleanse and protect the liver by taking herbs such as dandelion root, burdock and milk thistle, and drinking green tea. 3. Take vitamin C, which helps the body produce glutathione, a liver compound that drives away toxins. 4. Drink at least 2 litres of water daily 5. Breathe deeply. Think about how you breathe. Deep breathing will allow more oxygen to circulate through your system. 6. Transform stress by emphasizing positive emotions.

7. Have a Dermalogica® Enzymatic Sea Mud Wrap. A must for all clients wanting to detox and cleanse. Detoxify, exfoliate and nourish your body with a purifying seaweed and mineral mud sealed in a warm, relaxing wrap. Infused with aromatic botanical extracts and fruit enzymes, this treatment will leave your skin smooth and supple. Available at Chic from £38.00 8. Have regular massage and ask your therapist to incorporate lymphatic drainage moves to encourage your body to naturally flush through. 9. Dry-brush your skin to remove toxins through your pores. 10. Exercise - Boost your metabolism through high intensity workout sessions. Feel better on the inside and look great on the outside.

EATING FOR TWO Children’s cookery author Annabel Karmel discusses her new book Eating For Two, which guides expectant mothers through the nutritional minefield that is pregnancy, and suggests ideas and recipes for everything from morning sickness to sleeplessness.

I just thought if I could write that for pregnant mothers, it would be incredibly useful

186

For many mothers-to-be, eating for two is one of the joys of pregnancy. But research clearly demonstrates that expectant mums who eat too much and pile on the pounds are at increased risk of pregnancy complications, whereas those who eat healthily and manage their weight are at much less risk. It’s with such health messages in mind that best-selling children’s cookery writer Annabel Karmel has taken a slight detour from her usual direction and produced a book about eating during pregnancy. The book, Eating For Two, features 94 healthy recipes and information about nutrition during all three pregnancy trimesters. Karmel, a mother of three, explains that she wanted to write the definitive book giving pregnant women all the advice they need, with delicious recipes as well. However, she’s keen to stress that while pregnant women should eat well, that doesn’t mean eating twice as much as usual. “Doctors focus very much on the baby,” she says, “and nobody’s watching the amount of weight the mother’s gaining. “There are no clear guidelines in this country as to the rate of weight gain during pregnancy, and obstetricians have told me they’ve never seen so many fat pregnant women. “They throw away the diet book and the scales, don’t care how much they eat, and don’t realise that you don’t need to eat for two.” She says the only time a pregnant woman needs to eat more is during the last trimester, when she should eat an extra 200 calories a day. “Women are becoming fat during their pregnancy and can’t shift the weight afterwards, so there’s more pre-eclampsia and gestational diabetes,” she says. She stresses that pregnant women need a good-quality diet, with iron, calcium and essential fatty acids, and should take folic acid and vitamin D supplements. “You need to think about the foods you’re eating a bit more carefully. It’s quality, not quantity.” Karmel’s recipes feature a range of nutrientdense foods such as oily fish, which contains omega 3 fats which help form the baby’s brain, nerve and eye tissue. Many featured foods contain iron, which is important for mum and baby’s blood, the placenta and baby’s iron stores, or fibre, which helps pregnant women avoid constipation. The book also includes useful nuggets such as the ‘Top 10 ways to beat morning sickness’, which suggests eating small high-carbohydrate snacks every hour, having a sip of a fizzy drink when feeling nauseous, and eating ginger, which has anti-nausea properties. As well as helpful information about healthy BMI (body mass index), different food groups and pregnancy supernutrients (folic acid, vitamins C and D, omega 3 fats, iron, calcium,

magnesium and zinc), there are also a number of pregnancy mythbusters, including ‘Do cravings mean our body is missing nutrients?’ The answer is probably not - research shows it’s likely to be connected to iron deficiency. Karmel explains that the book is really an extension of what she already does - she’s previously written 26 books focused on baby and toddler meals and nutrition. “For me, it’s still feeding a baby,” she says, “but at a very vulnerable time in their life when they’re inside you. “It’s looking after the pregnant mother, and it also gave me the chance to develop recipes for adults, which I love to do.” Recipes include breakfasts such as cinnamon almond granola or banana bread; main meals

including quick creamy chicken curry, fillet steak with wild mushrooms and tarragon sauce, and sticky tuna and ribbon noodles; snacks including mango and banana smoothie and English muffin pizzas; and yummy desserts such as lemon souffle pudding and coffee and walnut cake. “I hope they’ll become favourite recipes for after women have had their baby too,” says Karmel, “as they’re feeding their baby and they need to eat well then too, particularly if they’re breastfeeding.” She’s also included plenty of recipes that can be frozen, as after the birth, when women are looking after baby and possibly breastfeeding, they often don’t have time to cook, despite the fact that a healthy diet is still essential. Karmel points out that what to eat and avoid can be very confusing for pregnant mums what cheeses can they eat, is sushi OK, can they eat peanuts? “Some things have changed,” she explains.“A few years ago pregnant mums were being told not to eat peanuts or peanut butter, but now they actively encourage you to eat them if you’re not allergic, to desensitise your baby. “I include quite a few recipes with nuts - such as chicken satay, which is delicious and nutritious.” She adds: “It was a pleasure writing this book, because I’ve had to write books for children for so long. I cook from it most nights now, because the recipes are easy and quick.”

RECIPE CHICKEN SATAY

(TWO PORTIONS)

INGREDIENTS

METHOD

2 garlic cloves

Put all the ingredients except the groundnut oil and chicken into an electric hand blender and blend until smooth. Cut the chicken into strips and allow to marinate in the sauce from 30 minutes to three to four hours. The longer the better. When ready, heat the groundnut oil in a hot pan and add the chicken until it’s cooked through and the surface caramelised. Alternatively, the chicken can be put on to skewers and then grilled or barbecued. Serve with dipping sauces such as sweet chilli sauce.

1 tbsp chopped root ginger 3 tbsp peanut butter 2 tbsp cider vinegar or rice wine vinegar 3 tbsp soy sauce 3 tbsp dark brown sugar 1 small chilli de-seeded 3 tbsp lime juice 1 tbsp ground nut oil 1 small shallot Salt and pepper

Dr Tabitha Randell, a consultant in paediatric endocrinology, says: “Girls usually start puberty anywhere between the ages of eight to 13 years, boys between nine to 14, so a nine-year-old girl starting with breast development is completely normal. “The time between breast buds appearing and a girl starting her periods is usually about two years, although again there can be quite a wide variation. If a girl starts with breast buds at nine, she will usually start her periods when she’s about 11. “Parents worry how their daughter will cope with the physical and emotional changes that come with puberty. “Many schools will cover puberty and basic sex education in year 4-5, but it’s also important that parents explain to their children what’s happening to them, and there are some excellent books and websites that explain puberty in simple terms. “The hormonal changes that come with puberty will help the brain mature to some extent, but can be very confusing for younger children, so parents need to remember that outbursts are not always easy for them to control and to try not to overreact to a teenage strop. “On the other hand, it’s also important to remember that your daughter is still a child and your love and guidance will be vital to help her make appropriate choices.”

WHAT DOES THE THERAPY INVOLVE? During the healing you will be fully clothed, and I will place my hands either on or just above your body at various energy points. This is a pain-free and very pleasant experience. You will be able to completely relax – in fact many clients fall asleep during the therapy.

of Reiki is to create balance “ The essence where there is chaos!

Aruba Bournemouth Beach

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

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