FRESH OFFICE & NEW BRANDING FOR MARTIN & CO BOURNEMOUTH

NEW HOMES DEVELOPMENT IN CHRISTCHURCH

Along with the glorious sun that Bournemouth has been enjoying recently has come the exciting new Martin & Co branding that has now been spread across all of their franchises! The Bournemouth office has now been refurbished with new exterior signage and a modern interior style with extra advertising visibility for their available properties. With the new branding comes many more benefits and services for all of our clients. Many of our offices will be introducing the Martin & Co Sales Services, which will incorporate a whole new way of selling your property and the long term care of your property investments! The full sales roll out is expected in September

Work has just started on an exciting new housing development off Bronte Avenue in Christchurch. Miller Homes are delighted to be working in partnership with Raglan Housing Association to build a range of 38 homes. “There will be a mix of two, three and four bedroom family homes on the development which will be known as The Parsonage,” says John Taylor, Regional Sales Manager. “At this early stage, purchasers who would like to buy off plan can get the pick of the plots and have a say on personalising their new home depending on the build stage.” Richard Stevenson, Director of Business Development at Raglan Housing Association said, “We are delighted to be working with Miller Homes on The Parsonage. We selected Miller to work with us due to

2012. In addition, there are more Landlord offers than ever before, including our now well acclaimed ’21 Day Promise’ and a free visual electrical test on newly instructed managed properties. Upon being asked what the new branding meant to the Bournemouth office, Kim Bartlett the Branch Manager replied, “It is a fantastic opportunity to reaffirm to our current, new and future clients that Martin & Co Bournemouth are constantly refreshing their services to suit the local environment and property market. We insist on our services suiting individual requirements and the result of this means that we have happy landlords, happy

tenants and well maintained properties. The soon to be introduced sales service will again focus on the individual requirements of sellers to ensure they receive the service they seek. It is exciting times for the Bournemouth office and the team and we are looking forward to welcoming our clients into our modern and innovative style of business!” If you would like to discuss your property requirements with the Martin & Co Bournemouth office please call us on 01202 559922 or email bournemouth@ martinco.com. Alternatively, why not pop in to see our new office for a chat over a coffee and biscuit?!

their commitment to quality and strong track record in delivering excellent market and affordable homes. This scheme cements Raglan’s strong commitment to delivering new homes in Dorset and came about due to close collaborative working with Christchurch Borough Council members and officers”. If education is an important consideration you will be well catered for in both the Primary and Secondary school sector. You will be pleased to know that The Parsonage is in the Twynham School area which received an ‘outstanding’ report at the last Ofsted inspection. To register your interest and to find out more details about this development call 0870 336 4200 or contact the selling agents, Connells, on 01202 483344.

LIVING ARCHITECTURE

Desire to shift perceptions of modern architecture

16


HOLIDAYS IN MODERN ARCHITECTURE Two years ago the writer and philosopher, Alain de Botton set up Living Architecture. De Botton is the author of a number of books on subjects as diverse as love, travel and philosophy but it was after the publication of “The Architecture of Happiness” and the subsequent tours and talks he did, that he became convinced of a “desire to shift perceptions of modern architecture”. Living Architecture was hence born and exists to give people the chance to holiday in exemplary examples of modern architecture, commissioning some of the finest architects in the world, in the hope the public might start to warm to the contemporary again.

17


So far Living Architecture have four properties dotted about the British countryside, including two properties in Suffolk; The Dune House by Norwegian practice Jarmund / Vigsnæs Architects and The Balancing Barn by Dutch outfit MVRDV; The Long House in Norfolk by Sir Michael and Lady Patty Hopkins, and this property, The Shingle House in Dungeness by Scottish firm NORD. They’ve also recently completed a temporary place perched on top of Queen Elizabeth Hall in London, entitled “A Room for London” by David Kohn. The oddball looking Retreat by Peter Zumthor is due for completion next year. The Shingle House is sited on one of the most unusual and poetic landscapes in England, on the shingle beach of Dungeness, near Romney Marsh. The vast beach contains a random collection of fisherman's huts (many of them owned by artists, including - most famously - the late film-maker Derek Jarman), two lighthouses and the terminus of a miniature coastal steam train. The entire beach is classified as a nature reserve and is filled with unusual flora and is a haven for a plethora of birdlife. NORD (Northern Office for Research and Design), responded to the natural drama of the site with a simple monumental black house, finished in tarred black shingles on the outside and in a beautiful palette of concrete and timber within. Sleeping 8 people, it makes for a stunning secluded holiday in a dramatic landscape, who said British holidays were boring?! The site in Dungeness was challenging, with an unstable shingle bed, extremes of sun, rain and wind and numerous government regulations. Dungeness is Britain’s only desert, a shingle wasteland punctuated by hardy, brightly coloured plants. It is home to a peculiar assortment of buildings and activities, from tiny fishermen’s huts to a giant nuclear power station by way of lighthouses and a miniature steam railway. 18


19


NORD's reference points for the 'Shingle House' are both the local vernacular style and the traditional building method of wrapping a structure in one continuous material. The external skin of the house is entirely 'cloaked' with a combination of tarred timber cut shingles and timber boards. Inside, The Shingle House is calming and robust, featuring 4 double bedrooms. On the ground floor, the living room features a large concrete fireplace with views out across the Dungeness shingle. In addition to a bathroom with a shower, there is a large private bath house where visitors can soak in a black polished concrete sunken bath, set within a Purpleheart timber floor, whilst looking out over the landscape. Beyond the bath house is the kitchen and dining area. From the dining table a large wall of glass can be opened to the outside, and in the kitchen a second wall of glazing opens on to a hidden and sheltered courtyard area, ideal for al fresco eating or taking in the sun. A small garden surrounds the property, allowing further outdoor space to relax and enjoy the Dungeness environment. From here you can wave to the Romney Hythe and Dymchurch miniature railway as it passes by the end of the garden. The Shingle House is masterful, not only in it’s execution, but the concept of providing architecturally outstanding properties for holidays is a unique proposition that is sure to draw in the crowds. This my friends, is UK holidaying in style.

DIY EXPERT

THIS WEEK:

Get those jobs done with a little help from DIY guru Julia Gray This week: How to transform your home with painted floorboards

HOW TO TRANSFORM YOUR HOME WITH PAINTED FLOORBOARDS While painted floorboards look stunning, they’re not generally as practical as varnished or stained boards because, depending on the colour, paint is more likely to show up dirt and marks. It can also get chipped, which is annoying unless you like the shabby-chic look. However, painting boards is easy to do yourself and the end result outweighs any negatives. Period floorboards often have modern boards mixed in where repairs have been done over the years, and painting them makes it easier to disguise the new ones than with stain or varnish, although there may be a difference in the wood grain.

If the boards are in good condition, you should just be able to use a wood scraper and sandpaper or handheld electric sander to clean them off and make them smooth. Remember to bang down any protruding nails with a nail punch and hammer, and remove staples or other remnants of the previous floor covering. After sanding and scraping the boards, clean them thoroughly with a vacuum cleaner and if they’re still dusty, wipe them over with methylated spirits. If you leave dust and debris on them, it will spoil the finish, so clean them thoroughly first and also between coats of paint, if necessary. Dust

and debris will have gathered in the gaps between the boards too. To clean them out, run a butter knife down them. Alternatively, use a powerful vacuum cleaner, which will do the job quickly and easily for you - the Bosch PAS 11-21 vacuum cleaner, £114.95, www.diytools.co.uk, works well. If the boards are in such a bad state that only sanding with an industrial floor sander will do, this is much more of a mission. Hiring a sander (and an edger) isn’t particularly expensive, but it’s hot, hard and dusty work and you may feel that once you’ve gone to all that effort, it’s a shame to cover the newly sanded boards with paint.

Assuming you are painting them, a quick-drying floor paint, especially a water-based one, is ideal if you need to use the room again soon. If you can close the door and wait a few days, a solvent-based paint may be better. While it’s certainly recommended to use a specialist floor paint, you could use ordinary wood paint and protect it with clear (non-yellowing) varnish (try Ronseal Perfect Finish Diamond Hard Floor Varnish in Clear Satin, £49.98 for 2.5ltr, B&Q). However, bear in mind that the paint’s not designed to be walked on, so while it might be a cheaper option, it could be a false economy in the long run.

PRODUCTS OF THE WEEK: DULUX TRADE FLOORSHIELD If you’re looking for a really tough floor paint, Dulux Trade Floorshield is a good choice. It’s solvent based and hard wearing (suitable for wood, concrete and steel) with a mid-sheen finish. Floorshield’s designed to stand up to scuffing and repeated washing in light-to-medium-traffic areas, covers better than water-based versions, so fewer coats are required, and has a recoat time of 12-16 hours.

Dulux Trade Floorshield costs £58.20 For 5ltr www.duluxdecoratorcentre. co.uk

HOW-TO TIP When preparing wooden floorboards before painting them, you may find that patches are splintery and can’t be sanded smooth.

RONSEAL PERFECT FINISH DIAMOND HARD FLOOR PAINT Can’t wait that long? Ronseal Perfect Finish Diamond Hard Floor Paint dries really quickly and can be used

Cover them with wood filler, and sand when set, as you don’t want to injure bare feet once the floor’s in use. Yellow stains can also be a problem - if they keep showing through the paint, use a stain block, such as Polycell Stain Stop.

on wooden and concrete floors. It has a slip-resistant formula, ideal for kitchens and bathrooms, and is also designed to resist scuffing, as well as scratches, knocks, flaking, peeling

With newer boards, it’s important to seal the knots with knotting solution to prevent the resin in them from bleeding through the paint. Apply a couple of coats, one horizontally and one vertically. And don’t forget to use wood primer/undercoat on the floorboards (whatever their age) before the topcoat.

and chipping. A big plus is the long-handled Perfect Finish Floor Pad that comes with it. The cleverly designed pad delivers the right amount of paint and makes applying it extremely quick and easy.

Dilute the primer/undercoat with about 10% of white spirit, so it penetrates the wood better. Try Polycell Stain Stop, £11.48 For 1ltr, B&Q.

SIX OF THE BEST OUTDOOR TOYS

SIX OF THE BEST OUTDOOR TOYS Will this summer be a scorcher? With optimism as our key ally, we must buy the suncream, paddling pools and more to create a compelling reason for the sun to don his cap. At the recent debut of the Toyology Outdoor Toy Awards, a group of 30 children - they really do know best - had a day testing out 60 of the best outdoor toys on the market. To keep your ankle biters away from the gogglebox, check out the top six toys as chosen by the eight- and nine-year-olds.

Invest in this piece of kit and enjoy hours of fun as the children gather round to build a host of interesting back garden properties. This colourful set-up is durable to the elements but most of all it unleashes creativity from everyone that picks up a piece. If you’re looking for some peace and quiet, this definitely delivers.

This gadget is seriously cool. With castor wheels on the back and an over-sized wheel up front, it’s sure to give a grin-inducing ride. Add in a brake system that features a spark maker every time you touch it to the floor and you have a very impressive spinning machine.

New to these shores, this action-packed game will keep a group of four entertained for hours. The rules are simple - throw the Boochie and then try to land your ball or hoop as near to it as possible. But with the wrist tracker giving you crazy challenges - stand on one leg - the gameplay is as addictive as it is difficult. Suitable for the garden, park or beach, it’s an absolute summer essential.

APP OF THE WEEK

This toy should win a gold medal for simplicity - just stick a piece of paper in the nose and then throw it up in the air as far as those biceps allow. Upon impact with terra firma, it’ll make the most explosive sound, as well as flashing its multi-coloured LEDs the entire time.

Jump Around - Plum 6ft Trampoline with enclosure - £149.99 from www.argos.co.uk There are plenty of jump around playthings to choose from but this one from the outdoor experts at Plum has ticked all the boxes and is triumphant in the outdoor bouncing arena. It’s easy to assemble, good value for money, and jumping good fun!

There isn’t another blaster-type toy that can come close to this one. Load up your foamtipped projectiles, pull back on the elasticated launcher and let rip. A few playthings claim lengthy distances, but there aren’t many that can match the 125ft achievements of this archery set.

FOAM FIGHTERS!

After you’ve taken delivery of your planes, pop and grab the free app download and prepare to take to the virtual skies. With your plane at the front of your handset, it adds an extra element of realism as you dog fight your way around the front room. There really isn’t any more fun to be found in the land of apps.

GARDEN CLINIC Our Gardening Experts at Stewarts answer your planting questions and advise on the essential jobs this month

GARDEN DOCTOR

AUGUST GARDEN PLANNER • Watering! Particularly containers, and new plants - preferably with grey recycled water or stored rainwater. • Prune late summer flowering shrubs after flowering • Prune your Wisteria • Harvest sweetcorn and other vegetables as they become ready • Deadhead flowering plants regularly • Keep your ponds and water features topped up • Use a liquid feed on your lawn to help against all that use they should now be getting • Keep a good look out for any signs of Insect or Fungus attacks on your crops • Spray your Roses at regular intervals against Black Spot & Insects (prevention rather than cure)

Q

Email gardendoctor@stewarts.co.uk

I am worried about my lawn. I have Leatherjacket Chafer Grubs attacking the lawn. I have had the lawn treated by Greenthumb but there are large patches of brown dying grass. What can I do about these patches and how can I improve the quality of my grass? Normally I would recommend that you treat your lawn now with Provado Lawn Grub Killer which you would normally apply in May or June which coincides with the egg laying period for this pest, but you would need to know what the Greenthumb company has already used as you would not want to duplicate any applications. On the issue of the brown patches there are various patch kits you can use depending on the type of lawn you have and it’s situation i.e. in a shady area or sunny. There is a very good information website that would be worth a look at for you from our lawn seed supplier which is www.johnsonslawnseed.com and you can down load a video.

FIVE MINUTES WITH... Amanda Lamb is back with a new series of You Deserve This House. She talks about the programme, as well as her dream project and her thoughts about the unique tribute song Harry Hill devised for her on TV Burp. FOR THOSE WHO’VE NEVER SEEN YOU DESERVE THIS HOUSE, CAN YOU SUM THE PREMISE UP?

YOU DESERVE THIS HOUSE? The production company that makes the show pitched the idea to Channel 4 with my name attached to it, and it just went from there. For me, it’s got absolutely every element in it that I adore - human interest stories, property and interiors, so I’m in my element. I saw so many ideas for my own house!

It is a makeover show with a heart. We help the nation’s unsung heroes, the people who spend the majority of their lives looking after others, whether they’re carers, or work for charities, or have disabled children. We send them away on a spa break for two days so we can get in and tackle their houses. It’s just a really nice, feelgood programme. By the end of it, I challenge you not to blub. Most people I know end up in bits!

YOUR NEW HUSBAND MUST WISH YOU’D NEVER LANDED THIS GIG!

IT OFTEN SEEMS AS IF YOU MUST SPEND MOST OF YOUR TIME IN TEARS

WERE THERE ANY EPISODES THAT REALLY STOOD OUT FOR YOU?

I’m utterly useless - I readily admit that. At home, I cry at anything - adverts, when I watch my daughter sleeping... I’m such a soft touch! Most of the time I try to hold it together, because I think this is not the time or place to start blubbing, but it doesn’t always work.

One of the episodes was with a woman called Alice Halstead who has a rare form of diabetes. She’s 21 years old and spent three years in hospital, and we stunned her by redoing her study, bedroom and kitchen. When I was 21, the only thing I was bothered about was whether my hair looked all right or whether the car was going to start, but she spends her time trying to raise funds for a charity called Rays of Sunshine, which grants wishes to ill children. So many people moan if they get just a cough or cold, but she doesn’t ever complain. But they’re all very special in their own way.

THE SHOW SHOULD BE SPONSORED BY A TISSUE MANUFACTURER! It really should, absolutely! Sometimes it gets the lot - I look around the room and the cameramen have gone, and the runners, and everybody. You always know that when the cameraman cries, it must be a really good story. IS IT DIFFICULT TO KEEP THE MAKEOVERS SECRET FROM THOSE TAKING PART? Fortunately for us, that’s not our problem - it’s the problem of the people who live with our subjects. But it became more difficult after the whole Harry Hill incident, which came about while we were filming - and we had, I think, another 10 or 12 shows to film. Let’s face it, half the nation watches TV Burp, so I was just thinking, ‘Please don’t let our subject watch it!’ WHAT DID YOU THINK OF HARRY HILL’S TRIBUTE? I loved it. I was quite gobsmacked actually. I’m a huge fan, I just adore him, I think he’s so funny and so clever, so to be picked on by Harry Hill is probably one of the biggest accolades you can get. It was just fantastic. 50

Amanda Lamb

HOW DID YOU GET THE JOB OF PRESENTING

He’s just happy that I’ve decided to stay in the house, because property has always been in my blood. I used to get itchy feet, and for the last year, I was saying, ‘I think we should move’, but then I realised I just love our home, so we’re staying put. I think he’s just happy we’re not about to pack everything in boxes again.

WHY DO YOU THINK PROPERTY PROGRAMMES ARE SO POPULAR? I think as a nation we are obsessed with owning our properties. It’s very much our domain, our kingdom, so I think we’ll always be interested in property. And also we have such an amazing history with property in this country, we have Victorian, to Queen Anne, to Georgian, to old converted warehouses... There’s such an eclectic mix here, which I think you don’t get in that many other countries. YOU STARTED OUT AS A MODEL, BUT DID YOU ALWAYS HAVE A TV CAREER IN MIND? When I left school I went straight to work in an estate agency for four years, and then became a model. TV never crossed my mind. It was my agent who thought I’d be really good at it, and in the end I put a showreel together, mainly to shut her up because she kept hassling me. I became disillusioned with modelling and didn’t want to do that any more, and went back

to college to train to be a teacher. The day I went back to college was the day I got a call to audition for A Place In The Sun, so it was very strange, quite serendipitous. YOU MUST STILL BE THANKING THAT AGENT PROFUSELY NOW Oh yes! Well, she’s still my agent - all these years down the line and she’s still with me. DO YOU HAVE A DREAM PROJECT? Oh gosh! I’d love to carry on doing what I’m doing, but I’d also love to do a travel show based in this country. I’m passionate about the UK and, when the sun shines, I think it’s very hard to beat. Anything to do with history, architecture and the countryside - getting paid to travel the length and breadth of the nation would be lovely! YOU GOT MARRIED RECENTLY... I did. It’s all very new... we lived together for ages, and we met making A Place In The Sun. But it does feel very different. It’s been lovely, getting used to the new surname and everything. I’m getting used to being a Mrs now as well. I keep saying “my boyfriend”, then having to stop myself and say, “my husband” instead. WILL YOU BE CHANGING YOUR NAME FOR WORK TOO? No. I think the only person who has managed to do that successfully has been Gabby Logan. I would have said Cheryl Cole as well, but that’s not been quite so successful in other ways, has it? So no, I shall stick to Lamb for professional stuff. YOU’VE RECENTLY TAKEN UP YOGA TOO, HAVEN’T YOU? When I was filming You Deserve This House, my work-life balance was completely out because I was working six or seven days a week. I have a rule where I’m not away from home more than two nights on the trot because we have our daughter, Willow, but I knew I needed to redress this, so I decided to do my first yoga class for three or four years and it was a roaring success, so I will be back for more. I’m trying to create a balance between everything - being a wife, a mum, a girl and a TV presenter, so yoga’s my hour out of my day to just ‘be’. You Deserve This House is on Mondays on Channel 4 at 11am

‘We value you... and your home’


The groundbreaking girl band have reunited for their next project. The Spice Girls reveal their excitement about their newly-announced musical, Viva Forever.

It's 16 years since the Spice Girls burst onto the scene in a whirl of bright colours, big hair, platform trainers and catchy tunes. Ginger, Baby, Sporty, Scary and Posh knew exactly who they wanted to be - dressing, saying and doing what they pleased. They were top of the pops, scoring nine UK number ones and selling 75 million records worldwide, but they were down to earth too, and sexy but not sexualised. Girls all over the world wanted to be them and Girl Power was born. These days Geri Halliwell, Emma Bunton, Melanie Chisholm, Melanie Brown and Victoria Beckham have babies of their own, successful solo projects and much classier clothes than they wore back in the glory years. But reunited at the hotel where they filmed their debut video Wannabe, this time to promote their musical Viva Forever!, they are still the Spice Girls we know and love. "It feels very natural when we get back together," says Bunton.

‘‘

‘‘

We giggle like children. We regress, we turn into kids... we have fun

58

As if to prove a point, they all start talking over each other and laughing. "We actually do have quite a good time together when it's just us lot," declares Halliwell, dispelling recent rumours of a rift. Despite being the smallest Spice Girl, she is definitely the loudest - sitting as she is at the head of the table and talking excitedly over the others. "Only we're allowed to criticise each other, no one else, it's like family," she adds. The rift may all be rumour but, if so, the pressure to prove it wrong does sometimes show among the group. Occasionally, when Beckham and Halliwell interrupt one another, they make a show of patting each other and gushing: "Sorry. No, you go first." Beckham seems shy as she sits at the end, playing with her hair, smiling (not pouting) at things the others say and offering careful, serious contributions. Brown constantly cackles over the others and occasionally chips in with something cheeky, which prompts Chisholm to tut like a mother hen and add something sensible. Bunton is just sweet and chirpy and happy to go along with it all. Halliwell appears to have been the driving force at getting the musical, written by Jennifer Saunders and produced by Mamma Mia! creator

Judy Craymer, off the ground, but they say they were all keen to see it happen. "I don't think it took any convincing at all," says Chisholm earnestly. "It's something we've spoken about a lot over the years. I think that our music lends itself very well to theatre." Beckham adds: "We've always said if we do this we want to work with the best people, because that's what we've always done. Everything we've done, we've done properly. And we've got the A-team. So we're very excited about it." Knowing they wanted an original story that used their songs, not a musical about the band, they set their sights on Craymer, impressed by what she had done with Abba musical Mamma Mia!Halliwell sent her an email asking for her help and then she and Bunton laid on the charm. "Emma and I got her round in my kitchen. And we were trying to be on our best behaviour going, 'Hi, we're really nice!'" Saunders, a staunch Spice Girls fan who recorded the Comic Relief single with them in 1997, demanded to write the show. Bunton raves: "We adore her and have known her for years. She's just brilliant, and she went through the story with each of us." The musical is about a young girl whose relationship with her adoptive mother is under strain as she dreams of stardom and enters a TV talent show. "It's about friendship and motherhood and then there is a little bit of, 'How do you juggle between success and friendship?'" gabbles Halliwell. Bunton and Chisholm confess they shed a tear while watching workshops of the show. "It is weird hearing other people sing our songs. But it's nice," says Bunton. The girls are keen to watch the auditions. "Do you remember when we did our tour and me and you auditioned the dancers?" Brown asks Beckham. "I loved doing that!" "And I took the boys and the boys were having a little dance as well," says Beckham,

referring to the sons she has with footballer David Beckham. Bunton jumps in raucously: "And we just kept sending emails saying, 'Make sure they've got good bodies!'" As they reminisce about their old costumes, Beckham reveals: "I have all my costumes still and I can't wait to show [baby daughter] Harper when she's a little bit bigger”. She breaks off, as the other girls are all whispering and giggling. "Buffalo shoes! It's Buffalo shoes that Victoria really liked," Halliwell blurts out, referring to the chunky platform trainers they all wore, setting a trend among schoolgirls all over the world. The others laugh and nod as Bunton explains: "She hated them." "No," huffs Beckham. "I didn't really, I just didn't want to wear them myself." She adds: "I think we're just so proud of what we achieved, and when we looked back at footage Geri just did a little video for us all - we were all nearly brought to tears. It brought back so many memories for us all." The girls promise they will be there on opening night but, despite having starred in a West End musical already, Chisholm won't commit to appearing in the show. "I think this is just a wonderful thing for us to experience," she explains in her calm, diplomatic tones. “Personally for me, I'm just proud that our music is in a show, and is going to be performed night after night”. Beckham adds: "We talked about Girl Power for a long, long time and to introduce a whole new generation... is fun." And with that they're off, buzzing and giggling like they've never been apart.

• Victoria Beckham has four children with footballer David Beckham and is a successful fashion designer. • Emma Bunton has two young sons with her partner, former Damage singer Jade Jones, and hosts her own show on Heart radio. • Melanie Chisholm is mum to three-year-old Scarlett and about to release her sixth solo album as well as starring in the new production of Jesus Christ Superstar. • Geri Halliwell has six-year-old Bluebell, designs clothes, works on new music and was recently a guest judge on The X Factor • Melanie Brown is a judge on Australian X Factor and has three daughters, one with actor Eddie Murphy. • Viva Forever! opens at London's Piccadilly Theatre in December.

FOOD OF CHAMPIONS

With Britain set to go sporting mad as the Olympic Games approach, we show you some tasty and nutritious ways to eat like Team GB.

6am A medium-sized breakfast of cereal or toast before training. 7am-9am Sports drinks to hydrate during the early-morning training session, and a recovery shake of protein and carbs afterwards. 10am A second, more substantial breakfast, such as scrambled eggs, toast and beans and a fruit salad with yoghurt. Then they may sleep for a few hours to help the body recover. 1pm A lunch of pasta, cous cous, rice or potato with salad and a high-quality protein such as chicken. 3pm Some swimmers will have a highcarbohydrate snack to fuel up for the evening training session, such as bananas, bagels, toast with jam or cereal bars. 4pm-6pm Sports drinks during training and another recovery shake afterwards to prevent hungry athletes from over-feeding when they get home. 7pm An evening meal combining complex carbs and a different protein source from that eaten at lunch - perhaps a red meat to boost the athlete's iron intake. 9pm Some swimmers will have a supper of cereal or toast. Nutritionists encourage them to have a milkbased meal that will help the body recover during sleep

Matt Holland Water Polo Goalkeeper

‘‘

Half an hour before and after training is when we've been told to eat our sweet stuff, so after training I'll have a chocolate bar. That's my sweet and I don't have it at any other time of the day

Yamile Aldama Triple Jumper

‘‘

I like seafood and a lot of salad. I eat everything. I like ice cream which is my guilty pleasure but I eat healthily. I don't believe in diets but you have to eat sensibly

Louisa Sawers Kayak 4 canoe sprinter

‘‘

I do a lot of baking so I enjoy experimenting with new recipes. I think it’s just keeping track of what you’re eating and knowing what works for your body. You’ve got to have treats. Chocolate’s mine. Every girl has got to have chocolate

‘‘

Although all athletes' needs are different, here's a snapshot of what a performance swimmer might eat during a typical day of training...

WHAT THE ATHLETES LIKE TO EAT

‘‘

80

DAY IN THE DIET

‘‘

During the Beijing Olympics, rumour had it that US champion swimmer Michael Phelps consumed a whopping 12,000 calories a day. He has since dismissed this story as "all a myth", dashing the hopes of would-be gluttons everywhere, but athletes of his calibre nonetheless need more food than the average person to fuel their tough regimes. Alex Popple, a performance nutritionist at the English Institute of Sport, is working with the British Olympic swimmers as the 2012 Games approach. He explains: "We try and make their diet match their energy requirements and protein needs. Their diet is generally higher in carbohydrate compared to the average person because they're expending a lot more energy on a daily basis. "They deplete their stores of muscle glycogen during training, and eating more carbohydrate will help replenish them more quickly. "It's ultimately about allowing the athletes to come back and train as hard as they can in every session so they can get longterm gains in performance."With this in mind, swimmers in training will eat three or four main meals a day, with recovery shakes and snacks to top up their energy levels in between. Calorie-wise, they tend to consume about double that of the average person - which means around 5,000 a day for men and 4,000 for women. Main meals should include complex carbohydrates - the starchier carbs like potato that are rich in other nutrients - and a highquality protein source. Think chicken fillets or prime cuts of beef rather than sausages or pork pies. "Protein provides the building blocks to allow the muscles to adapt to the training so they become faster, stronger and fitter. Every time athletes train they damage the muscle, so the protein helps the body repair it," says Popple. He also advises the swimmers to include one or two servings of fruit or vegetables per meal so they can stock up on essential vitamins and minerals. As elite athletes follow strict timetables and can have limited financial resources, meals that can be cooked and eaten in under an hour and cost less than £5 to make are also a winner. And if it tastes good, so much the better. "Athletes are humans with preferences and dislikes," says Popple. "We try and make sure the recipes we suggest meet all the performance nutrition essentials and requirements, but that they are also tasty. If not, you won't get a lot of athletes who want to eat it."

DREAM HOME BOURNEMOUTH TOWN CENTRE Some flats are roomy and spacious conversions, usually situated in leafy suburbs such as Meyrick Park, Talbot Woods or Westbourne. These former Gentlemen’s residences that have been chopped up into sizable apartments often offer square footage akin to a modern house but with a lot more charm and character. However this is offset by being a mile or more away from the town centre. Town centre flats are often 1960’s and 70’s blocks constructed with maximum density in mind. They often benefit from cliff top positioning but are subject to some times astonishing maintenance and ground rent charges. This is usually due to porterage or lift maintenance. This brings us to Staunton House; at first glance this striking building resembles one with the kind of construction usually found at a smart public school or even a classic library. Constructed some time around 1909 this town centre flat oozes the charm so often lacking in the modern buildings. The Cul de sac that this property is situated within backs onto the award winning Bournemouth gardens and there is a private gateway providing access. I was there on

92

one of the rare sunny days that we have experienced this year and the atmosphere in the communal garden was almost palpable. The bandstand was playing some smooth jazz and the gentle hum of people talking and laughing whist enjoying a game of mini golf added to the ambience. What was so pleasurable about this scenario was the fact that all this frippery is on your doorstep whilst you are secluded away. The slightly elevated position and the mature shrubs and trees offer you a barrier that protects you from gaze without detracting from the positioning. Inside the apartment neither disappoints nor flatters to deceive. It is a picture of elegance. The long hallway with its high ceilings and picture rails sets the tone. The lounge is a vast space offering dual aspect views of the gardens whilst some how never feeling anything less than cosy. It has a lovely box bay window and feature fire place. The kitchen is a modern space with light coloured units and access to a larder cupboard. There is access to the communal garden through a personal door to the side. There are three double bedrooms and a bathroom with separate W.C. that complete the accommodation.

£374,950


Outside there is a patio that wraps around the entirety of the apartment allowing the inhabitant an almost unspoilt view of the sun from some point on the seating are. There is communal parking as well as a garage and there is additional storage provided by original wrought iron look ups, ideal for the storage of bikes, surfboards or other beach apparel. In conclusion this apartment offers truly the best of both worlds, in its accommodation and geography. To find an unspoilt piece of Bournemouth within 200 yards of both the beach and town centre whilst maintaining a style from a by gone era is unique and captivating. It demands internal inspection if you are looking for a holiday home, if you are downsizing yet not ready for the perennial magnolia boxes that abound in the BH postcodes or if you just want a cool home close to all that Bournemouth has to offer.

The importance of inspections Your tenants seemed nice when they moved in, they had a good previous landlord reference, and they looked like the type of people who would look after your property - didn’t they? Many tenants look after the properties they rent as if they were their own, which of course it is for the term of the tenancy. However some do not and as much as you don’t want to appear intrusive towards your tenants it is important that your property inspected at regular intervals to ensure that there are not any problems that your tenants might be hiding. At YOUhome our property management team inspects your property quarterly and provides reports to both our landlord clients

and tenants keeping both parties informed of any issues that are raised, providing dialogue and setting out a framework to address any problems by arranging contractors for maintenance, or by arranging for further inspection. The inspection is not aimed to ‘check up’ on the tenants behaviour but more to ensure that the property is being looked after in an acceptable manner and to help communication between both parties, particularly if you don’t hear from your tenant very often it’s good to show them that they are not being ignored. Tenants are given full and appropriate notice of inspections and they are arranged at convenient time for both parties, the tenant

can choose either to be present or to be out. If you would like to accompany a member of our team that then that is fine also. Inspections are important for communication, and to ensure that the property is maintained to a good standard by tenants throughout the tenancy and help to avoid problems at the end of the tenancy when a tenant checks out. 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. We have a wealth of knowledge and ARLA qualified staff that is experienced and efficient in dealing with all aspects of property maintenance and inspections.

DO YOU BELIEVE

THIS BELLY

FAT LIE? So you want to get rid of some belly fat. And you can’t help but be on the lookout for that magical exercise that will give you flat abs once-and-for-all. I’m sorry to burst your bubble of hope... But all the ab crunches in the world won’t make a dent in your muffin top, as long as you continue with your unhealthy lifestyle. This isn’t a cutting edge discovery. In fact, by now it’s common knowledge that spot reduction is a myth. And yet, time after time, I’m asked to reveal the exercise, or exercise machine, that gets rid of stomach fat. There is no such magical exercise. The magic is found in altering your diet and exercise routine to promote fat loss from your overall body, including - but not limited to - your midsection. Here’s how to really get rid of that belly fat:

1. CUT OUT PROCESSED FOODS You know how Disneyland has the FastPass tickets that allow you to cut to the front of the ride lines? Consider processed foods as a FastPass ticket to belly fat. I wouldn’t be surprised if future studies show that the over-processing, chemical additives and high fructose corn syrup that are pumped into processed food specifically adds fat around your belly. If you want to lose pounds then stay away from sugars, sodas, chemically altered fats, processed, packaged, fried and preserved foods.

2. EAT FRESH, WHOLE FOODS

128

Once you’ve cut the garbage out of your diet, fill in the void with fresh foods such as: Green veggies Whole fruit - in moderation Lean, high quality meat Colourful veggies While these foods may seem boring at first, stick with it long enough and you’ll grow to love the unadulterated flavor of real food. Eating a diet filled with the foods listed above will give your body all the nutrients it needs to shed pounds and lean out.

3. A CONSISTENT, CHALLENGING EXERCISE PROGRAM The absolute best way to fight the battle of the muffin top is with a consistent, challenging exercise program. Consistent: You should exercise 3-5 times a week Challenging: If you want to see results then keep your body guessing with new exercises and varied intensity My exercise programs are specifically crafted to get you into the best shape of your life. I’d love to hear from you. Call or email today to get started.

BEST AB EXERCISES Just because those crunches won’t reduce your body fat, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t strengthen your abdominal muscles. Regular ab exercises are an essential part of your strength and conditioning – necessary in order to get that fit physique you want.

PLANK:

Lie face down on mat resting on the forearms, palms flat on the floor. Push off the floor, raising up onto toes and resting on the elbows. Keep your back flat, in a straight line from head to heels. Tilt your pelvis and contract your abdominals to prevent your rear end from sticking up in the air or sagging in the middle. Hold for 30 to 60 seconds, lower and repeat for 3-5 reps.

KNEE TUCKS:

Start on your back, bend your knees into your chest, point your toes together, and open knees out to the sides, keeping toes touching. Extend both arms overhead on either side of your ears, palms facing up. Lift your hips off the floor and bring your knees up towards your armpits. Slowly lower your hips back down to start position. Repeat for 12-15 reps.

ONE-ARM FULL SIT UPS:

Start lying on your back with your right knee bent, foot flat on the floor, and left leg extended straight out on the floor. Extend your right arm to the ceiling and reach your left arm towards your left foot. Sit all the way up, rolling through your back, keeping your right foot on the floor, and your right arm up over your shoulder and your left arm reaching in front of you all the way up. Slowly roll back down to the floor. That’s one rep. Repeat 15 times on one side, 15 times on the other. For an extra challenge hold a dumbbell in your extended arm.

OLIVE-STUFFED

TURKEY MEATBALLS SERVINGS: 5

Lean, ground turkey paired with Italian seasoning and tender olives, make these meatballs something special. The key to keeping this savory meal healthy is to pair it with a side of vegetables, rather than starchy pasta.

Here’s what you need... 20 oz Italian Seasoned Lean Ground Turkey 30 pitted olives 1 teaspoon olive oil 2 cloves garlic, finely minced 1. Take one tablespoon of ground turkey at a time; flatten it in your hand and form around an olive to create a ball. Repeat with all of the turkey and olives. 2. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet. Add the garlic and spread around the pan. Add the meatballs. 3. Turn the meatballs every 3 minutes for 20 minutes of cooking. Remove once all sides are browned and the meatballs are cooked through. 4. Serve on a platter with any remaining olives.

Nutritional Analysis: One serving equals: 205 calories, 12g fat, 800mg sodium, 1g carbohydrate, 0g fiber, and 20g protein.

ENERGY BALANCING REIKI

The most natural way to relieve STRESS

Jackie Howchin

Relieve stress and anxiety Ease physical and emotional pain Release anger, fear and worry What is Reiki, and how can it help you?

Reiki is a natural therapy which offers a relaxing treatment to calm the mind and clear away stress and other negative emotions, which may be blocking you from moving forward in your life. It’s important to find the true source of the underlying reasons causing your illness or stress, and with gentle communication and guidance this can be achieved.

Can you help any condition with Reiki?

Reiki can be effective in a wide range of illnesses and problems, including: stress, depression, bereavement, anxiety, ME, arthritis, sciatica, panic attacks, headaches, post-operative pain and many other symptoms which may be causing ‘dis-ease’ in your body.

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.

“The essence of Reiki is to create balance where there is chaos!” For further details or advice on how Reiki can help, please contact Jackie Howchin on

FACE FACTS Owner of Chic Beauty Salon & Chic Academy, Sophie Tamagna digs up the facts and finally sets the record straight about some of the urban beauty myths!

URBAN BEAUTY MYTHS From plucking grey hairs to the ever popular slice of cucumber on the eyes, beauty myths have been haunting women for years. In fact I think I could probably write a book with the amount I have heard! But is there any truth in these urban myths? I’ve decided to dig up the facts and finally set the record straight. Myth: Sufferers of oily skin should wash their face more than twice a day. Verdict: True The best way to keep skin oil-free is by cleansing it with a foaming facial wash. This helps to firm, minimise and tone pores, which in turn reduces the amount of oil produced. If your suffering particularly with oily skin try Dermalogica’s Dermal Clay Cleanser rrp £25.50 – this clay based cleanser acts to absorb and remove excess skin oils – It’s my must have! Myth: If you pluck one grey hair, three will grow in its place. Verdict: False Old wives’ tale alert! When you pluck a hair, it is removed from its own follicle, and only one hair can grow back within that same follicle. If you have some unwanted hair growth why not visit an Electrolygist for a more permanent result. Myth: Toothpaste will dry up blemishes. Verdict: True Toothpaste (the paste-kind, not gel!) contains bleaching and antibacterial ingredients to clean, polish and disinfect teeth. These very ingredients will also work on your skin, disinfecting pimples and drying them. However for a long term solution I recommend Dermalogica’s Clean Start ‘Hit the Spot’. Rrp £13.99 Myth: Wearing nail polish will turn your nails yellow. Verdict: True Why? Well there are a couple of reasons. Some polishes can stain your nails because of a chemical reaction between the colorant and the nail plate. It could also be that the polish’s formaldehyde (one of its many ingredients), is reacting with the keratin protein in your nail, making it brittle and yellow. To protect your nails, always wear a base coat! I recommend OPI’S Natural Base Coat rrp £10.50

Myth: Cucumber will reduce puffy eyes. Verdict: Half true Research has shown that cucumber actually does help reduce puffy eyes — but you’ll need more than a slice, or two! Look out for gel products that contain cucumber extracts as chances are they’ll have a lot more of the nutrient packed in. Personally I much prefer my cucumber on nice crisp salad and save my eye area for Dermalogica’s Age Reversal Eye Complex rrp £56.00

How often should you get one? Everyone can benefit from occasional massages: Some people who really hold tension in their body or have stressful lives should really think about having a massage once a week. People often forget to look after themselves and even having a massage once a month can help us to function more efficiently in our everyday lives. Plus it gives us something to look forward to that is just time for ourselves, which when done properly can improve our physical and mental state. As we all know, stress can be a killer. Many of us walk around with tension in our bodies, often in multiple areas. It affects everything from our posture, like the way we sit, work and lie down, to our blood circulation and even our temperament -- all of which can have serious long term health implications, not to mention making any existing conditions worse in some cases.

Myth: Your skin needs to ‘breathe’ Verdict: False Ah, the golden rule of skincare. Or not. Wearing make-up actually protects your skin from harmful properties. Yep — you read right! When you’re bare-faced, you’re actually more prone to skin damage. But saying that, it’s still super important to stick to a good skincare routine, including taking your make-up off at night ladies! For an all over natural skin coverage I recommend Dermalogica’s Treatment Foundation rrp £30.

• In 2011 almost twice as many doctors recommended massage to their patients than five years ago as a way to holistically treat ailments. • The number of both men and women who received a massage in the last year has doubled since 2010, women still get the most massages.

THE POWER OF TOUCH Who doesn’t love a good massage with aromatic oils and ambient, take-me-away music? But the benefits of massage are as broad as they are powerful in results. Regular massages not only help alleviate the body from holding that pent up tension, but can actually help the immune system, which is vital to our overall health. Lymphatic drainage helps to regulate the immune system by removing metabolic wastes and toxins through the lymph nodes situated around the body. Also, the targeted use of essential oils have been the go-to

SPORTING THE Mark the summer of London 2012 with an Olympic-inspired wardrobe. We show you how to work the sporty trend. It's not just the Olympic stars who'll be looking athletic this summer. The sporting season has infiltrated the fashion world with fit kit references a-plenty. From the subtle sophistication of Victoria Beckham and Stella McCartney's sleek racerback shapes to the urban aesthetic of Alexander Wang and Isabel Marant's relaxed silhouettes on the spring/summer catwalks, sportswear is a winning trend this season.And you don't need to be a gym bunny to sign up for membership of this sports club. Even high heels will put you on the fashion fast track.

STYLE CONTENDER Believe it or not, this take on sportswear can be uber-chic and will even work for eveningwear. Look to the designers’ favoured new clingy ‘scuba’ material. Inspired by wetsuits, these body-hugging pieces come in a thicker, more flattering material than Lycra. Dive into the deep end by opting for dresses with streamline racerback necklines or peplum details for added structure. Failing that, give your favourite sporty swimsuit an airing outside of the water, worn as a layered piece under a sheer shirt. Give your glam outfit a medal-winning edge with flashes of metallic against Wimbledon whites. Opt for gold, silver or bronze depending on your colouring. Take the high jump with towering heels to keep this look in the fast lane. Bright shoes will make your outfit ‘pop’.

TRACK STAR

To really champion the sporty look, you can go all out with a workout-inspired wardrobe. If you’ve got the legs of an athlete, anti-running running shorts are a key item. Look for silky-style shorts with contrast trims. If you don’t like flashing your legs, you’ll find trousers with similar go-faster stripes running down the sides. Make a dash for standout athletic-looking pieces but in a colour palette of pastels or primary brights to keep things fresh. Seek out detailing like mesh panels, tie drawstrings and visible zips to ramp up the luxe factor.Ditch those old gym trainers and head for this season’s winning footwear - haute couture hi-tops. Classic sports shoes have been given a glossy makeover with comfy trainers that feature a concealed wedge heel to instantly lengthen your legs.

SPORTING SPECTATOR

This is one trend where comfort and style can still be the perfect match, especially if you adopt the sports fan look. Fabrics are all-important to ensure your relaxed look says sport-inspired rather than slob-inspired. Think cotton slouchy tees, silky trackpants and bling trainers. For something more quintessentially British than global athlete, be knocked for six by a cricket jumper this summer. Kate Moss was recently spotted in one of the cable knit sporting classics. In keeping with this season's retro Americana trend, baseball jackets and American football tops are also enjoying a moment. Borrow from your man but leave his collection of rugby and footy tops firmly in the back of the closet. If traditional trainers are your thing, look for runners with a stylish twist like the patent or metallic leather numbers on sale the moment.

MOTORING NEWS

DANGEROUS DRIVING The average sentence for causing death by dangerous driving is just four years – 62% shorter than for manslaughter, according to road safety charity the IAM (Institute of Advanced Motorists).

The latest news on all things motoring

SEAT IBIZA FR SEAT’s Ibiza is so popular, it accounts for over half of the brand's UK sales. Available as threedoor coupe and five-door hatchback and a wide range of petrol, diesel and ECOmotive engines, there is certainly plenty of choice. And while many buyers will opt for diesel versions, those who still want some performance edge are likely to go for the FR models – very sporty yet still very economical. Ibiza prices start at around £9,350 with the high-spec models topping £17,000. My recent test model was the Ibiza FR 5-door, at £16,840. This eye-catching version gets power from a 2.0 litre diesel unit delivering 141 hp. Top speed is 130 mph and the 0-60 mph time is a nifty 8.2 seconds. That is very keen performance, yet glance at the combined economy figure and you have to blink - a stunning 60.1 mpg. And that is not too unattainable – I returned 55 mpg in a mixed driving week with no special effort at economy. FOR: Great blend of performance and economy, low overall running costs, nice driving dynamics. AGAINST: Some minor switchgear could be more conveniently located.

A six-speed manuel gearbox is standard and the action is slick and eager. And with precise steering and responsive brakes, this Ibiza offers fun as well as day to day practicality. The car looks the part with distinctive FR ( for Formula Racing) badging, honeycombe grille, 17-inch alloys and twin exhausts. The sporty image continues inside the cabin with a bespoke instrument panel featuring the FR logo, a sports steering wheel with a flat bottom rim and sports front seats, also with the FR logo. On smooth roads the ride quality is good enough, though on rougher surfaces it firms up quickly and can rattle your teeth now and then. Overall it is a delight to drive, with grippy handling and with an easy user-friendly feel to it. Standard kit includes stability and traction control, multiairbags, hill hold control, power windows and door mirrors, six speaker sound system, cruise control, trip computer, remote locking and low tyre pressure warning. Space for front occupants is impressive, though for rear passengers it is merely adequate. Load space with rear seats in use is a dec ent 292 litres, boosted to 847 litres with the seats folded. It works well as a family car, yet its charismatic styling enables it to appeal also to the business user.

The average sentence length of manslaughter is 6.6 years. Those sentenced to prison for causing death by careless or inconsiderate driving are given an average sentence of 1.3 years. Causing death by careless driving when under the influence of drink or drugs has an average sentence of 4.35 years. 53% of those convicted of causing death or bodily harm through driving offences were sentenced to immediate custody (260 people) in 2011. This has dropped from the 83% sentenced to immediate custody in 2001.

THE AVERAGE SENTENCE FOR CAUSING DEATH BY DANGEROUS DRIVING IS JUST FOUR YEARS Fines for drink driving are also lower in real terms than they were ten years ago. In 2001 the average fine for drink driving was £203 –the average £240 fine in 2011 was equivalent to just £178 in 2001 prices – a 12.3% decrease3. The average fine for careless driving is £138, 27% less in real terms than it was in 2001. Dangerous driving is the only area with tougher fines. The average fine is £518 – 30% more in real terms than in 2001. IAM chief executive Simon Best said: “We recently discovered that the number of prosecutions for motoring offences have fallen. Now it is clear that drivers are also receiving short sentences for some of the most serious driving offences. “Magistrates are handing out fines for drink driving that are less than five per cent of the maximum amount possible, giving the message that drink driving only warrants a slap on the wrist. Only sentences that reflect the seriousness of the crime will act as a proper deterrent.”

FORD B-MAX ON THE WAY

136

Ford’s new B-MAX is the company’s response to a growing “down-sizing” trend in Europe, with production now underway for September delivery to UK dealerships. With up to 40 per cent of Europe’s large car owners looking for smaller more efficient cars and 20 per cent of small cars owners seeking more space, it’s cars like new B-MAX in the small multi-activity vehicle market that are set to benefit. “With many consumers in Europe facing financial pressures, the status symbol of owning the most expensive, biggest or fastest is taking a back seat to being a smart, savvy or sustainable consumer,” said Henry Mason of global trend experts trendwatching. com. “European consumers are mature, urban and sophisticated. Naturally these ‘citysumers’

want cars that fit into their flexible, compact lifestyles.” The Ford B-MAX, assembled in Romania, combines compact dimensions for driving in congested cities with the ability to carry loads of up to 2.3m long, while the Easy Access Door System allows for a class-leading side access of 1.5m. Ford Says new B-MAX enables "down-sizing without down-grading." It offers best-in-class fuel efficient engines, Ford ECOnetic Technology innovations and Ford’s premium SYNC voice control system for enhanced integration of mobile phones and music players. “B-MAX is the right response to what customers are looking for in this size of vehicle. It’s small, frugal and stylish with an equipment level to satisfy customers who are down-sizing from

a larger vehicle. It’s a unique offering in the segment and a car that anyone could live with and use for all their needs on a daily basis,” said Ford’s man in charge of the B-MAX project, KlausPeter Tamm. Further B-Max details and prices will be announced later in the summer.

Jazz Café Sandbanks

Indi's Westbourne

The Boat Shed Poole Park

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.

Indi’s is possibly the finest Indian restaurants around and situated in the heart of Westbourne’s trendy village centre and a short drive from both Bournemouth and Poole. All their restaurant dishes are available as take away or to be delivered straight to your door, but there’s no drop in their usually high standard. 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. Unlike many Indian restaurants, at indi’s they pride themselves on having an individual curry paste for each of their dishes. In making the effort to do this they achieve a hugely diverse range of exciting flavours across the menu. Many discerning diners return time and time again to experience Indi's superb food and wonderful hospitality, while first time guests will feel as if they’re among friends in an exclusive club!
