DIAMOND ANNIVERSARY COUPLE CELEBRATE WITH BOURNECOAST

6

DORSET based Bournecoast were delighted to welcome a couple celebrating their diamond anniversary last month. Mr Graham and Mrs Violet Dugmore celebrated their 60th anniversary with their family by visiting Bournemouth and booking two of Bournecoast’s most comfortable self catering properties. The happy couple were joined at Stourfield Lodge by their two daughters and their families who were staying just around the corner in Ocean Blue. Stourfield Lodge provided an ideal solution for the couple as it afforded easy access for Mr Dugmore via a ramp. It also provided the relaxed accommodation expected of self catering accommodation to further enhance their stay and giving them time to just spend with the family with no time constraints. Mrs Sharples, their daughter who

booked the accommodation was helped by the Bournecoast holiday team to arrange a special surprise and flowers were delivered to the property ready for their arrival. Alexandra Eaton, Marketing Manager for Bournecoast said: “It was a delight to meet with the whole family when I called round to take some photos. We appreciated their hospitality during our intrusion on their family celebrations and they even offered me a glass of champagne which I had to decline as I was ‘on duty’. We hope the family enjoyed themselves and made good use of the champagne that the directors and staff gifted them.” The family, who were visiting from Shropshire have been visitors to Bournecoast’s properties in the past and love the flexibility that staying in self catering accommodation affords. Bournecoast was established

just 8 years after Mr and Mrs Dugmore’s wedding in 1960 and the Queen’s Coronation and over it’s 52 years has been flourishing alongside the Dugmore’s marriage and HRH’s reign. With this year’s earlier Diamond Jubilee celebrations firmly in everyone’s mind and the nostalgia this has inevitably provoked, young and old have been prompted to reflect on their memories. Simon Tebbutt, Business Development Manager said: “Since The Queen’s Coronation, this Country has experienced some amazing changes within the housing market which are indicative of the ways in which our lives have changed. Build quality has improved but this has also brought with it a dramatic increase in house prices and an even steeper decrease in the number of new homes being built” he added.

“Nearly two in three households were without a basic hot water supply in 1947. In 1991, this proportion had fallen to one in a hundred. Households in England with a second toilet have increased from 31% in 1996 to 41% in 2007.” He added. Home ownership has more than doubled over the past 60 years from 32% of all households in England in 1953 to 66% in 2010-11 with a high proportion of property owners also investing in second or more properties for their future. With 52 years of heritage, the Bournecoast team are best placed to give sound advice if you have a property in the area for sale or rent, or are interested in rental properties (long or short term). Please contact Bournecoast’s friendly team on 01202 437888 or visit www.bournecoast.co.uk.

Wash this space Waterproof style

Our bathroom nowadays is often so much more than somewhere to clean up, increasingly it’s a sanctuary where we relax and ease away our stresses. Gabrielle Fagan takes the plunge and checks out bathroom trends and ways to create your own home spa. Bathrooms are probably the hardestworking area in a house these days. To be successful, they should work as a practical space for the daily wash-andgo as well as being a haven dedicated to wellbeing and pampering. “Long gone are the days when the bathroom was simply a functional space. People are moving away from the Victorianstyle basic bathroom and towards the modern, spacious spa feel,” says Anthony Howells, bathrooms buyer for B&Q. “They want the clean lines, minimalism, wet rooms and walk-in doorless showers, enhanced by chunky floating yet stylish fixtures such as units and frosted glass,

which they see when they stay in hotels and want to replicate.” He predicts that, where space allows, the popularity of free-standing baths, becoming more sculptural in shape, will continue to grow as they provide a focal point in large bathrooms. Experimenting both with design and colour is a growing trend, according to Rita Rendo Castro, sales and marketing manager at Catchpole & Rye. “People are becoming increasingly design confident, with more opting to make a statement with a brightly-painted bath or patterned tiles,” she says.“The bathroom is an ideal space to try out new colours in a small area which wouldn’t necessarily work in a larger living space. Dove grey is a chic but safe choice for walls and gives a neutral base which can be enlivened by other colour choices. Salmon pink and yellow are one of my favourite combinations as they’re elegant but have a warm, summery feel.”

Bathrooms are embracing technology so that they can be the ultimate, flexible retreats, says Cheryl Gurner, creative director at Bathrooms International. “The bathroom has benefited hugely from advances in technology in recent years. Bathroom-friendly flat screen televisions, fibre-optic lighting in showers which mimic a twinkling star effect and hidden speakers offering surround sound - all add up to the wow factor in this most personal space.” While Paul Flowers, senior vice president of design at Grohe, predicts that the bathroom will be transformed in the next 10 years, as it develops into a space fully-equipped to cater for health and wellbeing. Developments in technology are already allowing us to equip it with personal lifestyle and health functions such as diagnostic mirrors, which measure and monitor the status of our

physical health. Lighting, projection and sound are bringing “entertainment” into the room, and can be programmed, just like showers, to precisely suit your mood at different times of the day. “As the barriers between the bedroom and the bathroom blur, the space will become more sensual, decorative and truly have the atmosphere of a fullyequipped indulgent zone.”

Splash out solutions Grohe Power & Soul showerhead starts from £70 and offers 11 different spray patterns. Bathstore has a waterproof high-definition touch-screen TV, £999. Or take a light-changing, mood-enhancing shower with a colour range including green for balance, blue for relaxation and red for energy. Sky Shower Chromotherapy, from £3,500, from Bathrooms International.

Splash out solutions

Revamping a whole bathroom isn’t always possible if the budget’s tight, so it’s worth looking at a more affordable update of features and accessories. “An easy, affordable and effective option is to replace some of the brassware and accessories, such as taps, radiators and mirrors,” says Emma Sturgess, marketing manager at Frontline Bathrooms. “These relatively simple changes can make a real difference to the look and style of the bathroom - delivering a totally fresh look.”

Frontline’s range includes the chic chrome Stream Mono Basin Mixer, £110; a Windsor Mirror with integral lights and accessory shelves, £135. If you’re despairing about old, damaged sanitaryware, the Bath Business could float your boat. It re-surfaces a wide range of sanitaryware and also sources original classics. Restoration prices start from £204 for re-enamelling basins and shower trays; from £358 for re-enamelling baths, and from £180 for reconditioning or re-plating

Small but perfectly formed Although the glossy interiors magazines feature vast bathrooms, the UK has the smallest bathrooms in Europe. “But just because your bathroom’s small it doesn’t mean you need to compromise on the quality or style of fittings,” says Robin Levien, design director of Ideal Standard, which has a Space range designed for compact areas. “By utilising innovative design and clever storage, your bathroom can still be well equipped and a calm rather than crowded space.” He suggests wall-hung toilets with a cistern neatly hidden behind a wall or fitted unit; basins and showers which fit snugly into corners, and clever features such as a bath with storage drawers at one or both ends. “A sliding door can release further space, while large-size

tiles create an illusion of more space more effectively than small ones,” he says. “Don’t pack out the walls with cupboards and definitely avoid too much at high level as this can reduce ‘head space’ which, if the area is small, is claustrophobic.”

Splash out solution Ideal Standard’s Space range includes an offset corner basin with semipedestal, £165.75, and Moments furniture bath with two end storage units, £3,611. Bathstore boasts an ultra-compact range, Cityspace, with a choice of three different basin sizes plus toilets which project minimally into the room. A close coupled WC £228; a 500 Basin, £45, and pedestal, £40. 11


Colour’s back

12

Colour’s back in fashion in homes and that’s being reflected in new ranges of bathroom furniture in a range of rainbow colours, which can brighten even the dullest space. “Add a pop of colour to your bathroom by installing a brightly-coloured basin or furniture,” says Ellen Tietz, marketing manager at Villeroy & Boch. “Sunflower orange, olive green and petrol blue are popular at the moment and sit beautifully alongside clean bright white ceramics.”

Splash out solutions Villeroy & Boch’s Subway bathroom furniture is available in petrol blue, as well as white and glossy grey. Vanity unit from £456. B&Q’s Duchess Paintable baths, from £729, could be one way to introduce a favourite shade. All paintable baths are primed and must be painted with an acrylic based paint, such as Fired Earth Eggshell Paints, £17.98 for 750ml.

THIS WEEK:

Get those jobs done with a little help from ‘Big Al’ our DIY expert. This week: Making a good first impression.

THINKING OF SELLING? THIS IS HOW TO MAKE A GOOD FIRST IMPRESSION

If you’re thinking of selling your home and want to make a good first impression, or you just want to improve its ‘kerb appeal’, giving the front a makeover is a must. Improving its appearance will not only make your home more sellable and attractive, it could also add value. The basics are pretty obvious - have a good tidy-up, give tired woodwork a lick of paint and do any necessary repairs, especially to the walls, roof, windows and front door. If they’re past help and you can afford it, you may want to replace the windows and door. The other area you need to focus on is the front garden because it can make a big difference to the appearance and appeal of your home - and it shouldn’t be difficult to transform. This time of year is ideal for brightening up your front garden, thanks to window boxes, hanging baskets, troughs and tubs planted with colourful summer bedding

HOW-TO TIP When building a deck, it's essential to treat any boards you cut, and the ends of any you use uncut, to prevent water seeping in. Use a specialist product, such as Ronseal Decking End Grain Preserver (£16.98 for 1ltr, B&Q). It preserves and protects against both rot and wood-destroying fungi and insects, and is easy to apply and work into the wood. Don't do decking without it!

plants such as pansies, geraniums and petunias. To define the entrance, especially if you have two doors and so visitors and potential buyers might be confused about which to use, strategically placed topiary bushes or tall shrubs in nice pots work well. Hedges provide privacy if your home’s close to the pavement, but can make the front room dark, so be careful to strike the right balance - it may be time to mean business with your hedge trimmers. If don’t want the hassle of maintaining a front lawn, or you don’t have room for one, stick to low-maintenance options such as gravel, pebbles or slate chips, all of which can be used to quickly cover eyesores such as concrete and crazy paving. A more expensive, but elegant, option is block paving, paving slabs, or slate or ceramic tiles, which are easy to maintain because they can be hosed down. Mix in some

flowerbeds and you should have a smart, easy-to-maintain front garden that’s the best of both worlds.Joy Peacock, of Greensleeves Nurseries in Lower Odcombe, near Yeovil in Somerset, says: “Use low-maintenance feature-foliage plants like ornamental grasses and slow-growing shrubs to break up paving and add interest. “It’s a good idea to choose plants that flower at different times so you have colour throughout the year. “Lavender bushes are great for lining the path to your front door - they’re in flower now and smell wonderful, drawing visitors in.” In some locations, especially expensive urban ones where parking is at a premium, paving over your front garden and lowering the kerb to create off-street parking can be a valuable addition to your home. It will probably cost you thousands of pounds and you may need planning permission (some councils are clamping down

on off-street parking applications), but it’s an option worth exploring in the right area - ask local estate agents if in doubt about yours. However, it isn’t very environmentally friendly. Plants have lots of plus points, including encouraging wildlife, and permeable surfaces such as grass and soil allow water to drain way, helping to prevent flooding, so try to keep some greenery if you can. Gravel, pebbles and slate chips are a better option than concrete, paving and tarmac because they allow water to drain through. Whatever you go for, your front garden should be in keeping with your home’s exterior - an ultramodern design probably won’t suit a country cottage, for example. It should also suit your lifestyle, as you don’t want a garden that requires more time and energy than you can devote to it, however good it looks.

PRODUCT OF THE WEEK BOSCH PCM 8S MITRE SAW £245.06 Homebase If you’re building a deck this summer, or doing any other woodwork, the Bosch PCM 8 S mitre saw (¬£245.06, Homebase) is a fantastic investment. It’s really powerful (the motor is 1200W) and has an angle-adjustable blade so you can do straight cuts as well as perfect mitres, but the best thing about it is the slide function. The blade slides, so you can just keep cutting when you’d have to stop with a conventional mitre saw, enabling you to cut longer pieces of wood with ease. Other well-thought-out features include a built-in laser beam and work light for accurate cutting, side extensions and a clamp so you don’t need someone to hold the wood for you, a dust-extraction bag for a cleaner room, and a depth stop for sawing slots. If you enjoy doing DIY, this is a must-have piece of kit.

All of a flutter Birds and butterflies are adorning interiors as nature-inspired designs flourish fashionably in our homes. We show you how to net colourful Flutterby style. Homes are coming alive with birds and butterflies, bringing with them colour and quirky charm. Our love of nature and craving for interesting colour and decoration has inspired designers to feature nature in patterns on fabrics and wallcoverings. Bird or butterfly motifs are a great way of blurring the boundary between indoor rooms and the garden, and they can be allowed to linger way beyond the summer because this trend is looking strong in the new autumn collections too. Choose between bold and graphic with tropical birds and vibrant colours or conjure the tranquility of a country garden with delicately coloured and detailed studies of our national birds. 5

Some peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s talents lay dormant and un-celebrated for the whole of their lives, others have their God given genius spotted at an early age, perhaps by a perceptive parent or an eagle eyed sports master at infant school. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not entirely sure who first flagged up my fathers gift for causing mayhem, presumably it was an innocent victim of one of his very early pieces of work, for us his aptitude for chaos has just always been there, a constant companion through our formative years and an artistry that even at 94 years of age still burns brightly. As his back catalogue is so extensive I only have space for a couple of examples, first we have the â&#x20AC;&#x2122;The Ready Pasted Wallpaper Incidentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Dadâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s noteworthy tactic that afternoon was to insert the D.I.Y. in between the televised horse racing from Uttoxeter ( most of his selections routinely fell in the paddock anyway) Having torn his attention away from the runners and riders for a cursory glance at the instructions he proceeded to fill up the supplied deep plastic tray with water which was then set down on the paste table. Completely oblivious to the carefully documented immersion times he wielded the carving knife and hacked off the first section to be hung before lobbing it into the water tray. Unfortunately the brief time it took for him to roar â&#x20AC;&#x2122;Passing Windâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; into 15th place fell woefully short of the approved immersion period and subsequently this first length refused to succumb to his increasingly frenzied windscreen wiper style rubbing, a turn of events made abundantly clear when he ended up wearing it. As the next race was run over the much longer 2 mile format he felt sure that by the time â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Hoof Heartedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; had romped home the adhesive would be much more cooperative. Encouraged by dad into first place with a string of helpful expletives his euphoria was stilled by the announcement of a stewards enquiry. As Dad would soon discover his hopes of landing a treble was not the only thing undone by the stewardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision to relegate â&#x20AC;&#x2122;Hoof Heartedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; to 2nd place. With his inclination for D.I.Y. now at itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lowest ebb he fished out the wallpaper and offered it to the wall and once again launched into his windscreen wiper routine his thoughts still distracted by those treacherous stewards at Uttoxeter. However the colour fastness of the wallpaper was no match for his unique 20 minute soaking strategy and went briskly from finely detailed floral study to abstract impressionism. Now utterly dejected he was not in the least bit surprised to turn round and discover that he had knocked his lighted cigarette against the water tray which had willingly discharged itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s contents onto the lounge carpet. The â&#x20AC;&#x2122;Spider in The Bathroomâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; is a perfect illustration of the frailty of Dadâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mission, all of his life he has striven to help people with random acts of kindness almost inevitably thwarted by his unfailing talent for calamity. Upon discovering a steroid enhanced spider on the toilet wall Mum and I reached the easy decision to leave it until Dad returned from the Pub. On hearing our news he instantly morphed into hunter gatherer mode, prepared his weapon of choice and strode upstairs hands clenched around his rolled up Daily Mirror. His battlefield insight honed during service in WW2 suggested that the high ground of the toilet seat was the place to deliver the bludgeoning from. Up on the seat and in a pose reminiscent of the Statue of Liberty he drew back his arm to deliver the terminal strike. Mum and I stood transfixed with morbid fascination but then observed that the distance between the spider and the tip of Dadâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s weapon suddenly started to increase. Drawing our gaze away from the killing zone we noted that in an unhelpful gesture the toilet seat was folding in on itself and as an upshot Dad was descending periscope like into the loo pan. The spider realising that Dad now posed a diminishing threat settled down to see how it would play out, although this was not quite as easy for Mum and I as our eyes had misted over courtesy of our uncontrollable and hysterical laughing. So there we have it, the spider sits cross legged on the wall, Mum and I are now having to support each other to avoid falling on the floor and Dad is up to his wedged ankles in toilet duck. I had hoped for space to recount the recent incident in the Poole Park Cafeteria when Dad gallantly offered to carry an old ladyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tray to her table (she was probably at least 10 years younger than him !) took two paces, fell flat on his face and sent her afternoon tea into orbit.

Five Minutes With...

Tamzin Outhwaite Actress and former EastEnders star Tamzin Outhwaite talks about how she’s preparing for the arrival of her second baby and why she’d love to star opposite her husband Tom Ellis providing she doesn’t keep laughing. You’re currently working on the launch for the alcohol-free wine sorelle. Is that good timing for you? The timing is good as obviously I’m pregnant, but I would have really loved to have Sorelle at the beginning of my pregnancy when I was trying to pretend I wasn’t pregnant, but people were working it out because I wasn’t drinking. At Christmas and New Year, when I’d just found out, if I could have gone to the fridge and poured a glass that tasted and smelled like wine, then I wouldn’t have had to lie so much. The Interest In Your Personal Life Really Started When You Joined Eastenders. Were You Prepared For That Level Of Fame? I don’t think you’re ever really prepared. I do remember when I was told I had the job, the executive producer, Matthew Robinson, said to me, ‘Be prepared for your life to change’, but I don’t think I realised just how much it would change. But I also think because I was a jobbing actress before, and I was only doing a three-month contract, I never really saw the big picture and just thought, ‘Oh, this is a nice job’. And then it turned into a three-and-half-year nice job! Also, I was 28 - if it had happened to me as a teenager, it would have been a different thing.

44

You’ve had a very varied career since leaving eastenders. Do you prefer tv or theatre, or do you like to mix it up? As I get a bit older I don’t like to see myself on screen quite so much, everything gets shot in HD and you think to yourself, ‘Why don’t they just get 16-year-old models?’ I love the immediacy of theatre and the feeling you get from staying with a character for a whole evening, but I love seeing the finished product of a TV show when it’s been edited well and put together, because you have no idea when you’re doing it what it’s going to turn out like. You recently co-starred in an episode of silent witness with your husband tom ellis. Would you like to do more projects together? That’s the first time we’ve worked together, and we only shared one scene which didn’t make the final cut. I don’t know if anyone would put us together again, I think people see me as a drama actress and him as a comedy actor, and at home it’s the complete opposite - I’ve got the jokes and he’s got the drama! But I do like the idea of working with him, now that I know I can do it without laughing! What do you look for in roles? I look at the challenge of it, and also at this stage of my life, when I have children, I have to ask if it’s something I can juggle my life with, which never used to be an issue. Also, will I enjoy it and does it scare me? It has to scare me a bit, otherwise it’s too easy. The minute you’re not nervous about a new job, there’s no point doing it anymore.

Has it been difficult combining being a mum with being an actress? You are constantly finding new things out, and it’s a project to make sure you’re doing a decent job as a mum and a wife, as well as an actress. It’s very busy - I have help and I still feel busy. I think you have to treat yourself, and make yourself feel special sometimes - have a nice hot bath, look after yourself, get a glass of Sorelle... Are you busy getting ready for your new arrival? The second time around you realise you don’t need half the things you thought you needed - the first time, you spend all this time making everything as perfect as possible, but the second time is much more relaxed. It’s still new, and the whole idea of going back to sleepless nights and sterilising bottles is not my favourite, but I also love the idea of starting again. And it’s going to be the last time, so I want to try to savour it. Have you got anything in the pipeline for after your maternity leave? Well, there’s stuff being talked about, nothing definite, but I’m quite excited about working again because it’s been a little while. We’ll soon be seeing you in a new film adaptation of great expectations. What can you tell us about it? I’m playing a small part, Molly - I’m sharing a bed with Ralph Fiennes at one point, and being the housekeeper to Robbie Coltrane, which was a lot of fun. It’s a Mike Newell film and

he’s a brilliant director, so it was just lovely being on set with all these really great actors. I had a really good time doing it.

Extra time... Tamzin Outhwaite is currently working with Sorelle, a new 0% alcohol wine-style drink, which only contains 24 calories per 100ml glass. Find Sorelle on Facebook at www.facebook.com/sorelledrink and on Twitter @Sorelledrink

Happy Landings Landing room Halls and landings are often forgotten areas in a home. But transform them into stylish displays or functional spaces and you’ll make a great first impression. Admit it, does your hallway all too often become a dumping ground where bags, shoes and coats are quickly discarded en route to the sofa or kitchen? When it comes to stylish interiors, halls and landings are probably the most overlooked. But unused space in a hallway or landing could be transformed into a useful functional area, or simply embraced as an opportunity to display art, family photos, or to store your keys and coats in style. If you have sufficient space, why not look at creating a mini home office area? Even

placing a desk on a landing could make a vast difference, providing the perfect answer to space dilemmas elsewhere in the house. Unused space under the stairs, or at the tops of landings, could be turned into stylish studies or library areas, with shelving and even some comfy seating. Artificial ranunculus arrangement in glass vase, from £19.99 each; Classique premium glass handkerchief bowl, £24.99; Vintage Swept cream photo frame 6x4", £4.99; Vintage Swept cream 3-opening photo frame, £9.99; Plum Pudding Swirl bullet vase, £7.99; stacking stools, £3.99 each; White Venetian Furniture Collection, prices from £129.99. All from Dunelm Mill www.dunelm-mill.com

Warm welcome

48

First impressions count, and your hallway will set the tone when you or guests enter through your front door. Alan Hughes, faculty director in architectural interior design at the Inchbald School of Design, says: “You want to feel welcomed, received back onto the security of your own zone, and guests need to know whose house they are in and that they are welcome too. “Hallways are transitional spaces so you remain in them less - this gives you a chance to be bold and experiment.” An easy place to start is by thinking about colour and texture. Your approach to these will vary depending

on whether you want to achieve a sleek, contemporary look, or whether you’d prefer a softer, more traditional, homely feel. “Vibrant and warm colours are welcoming,” says Hughes. “Dramatic colours can look jewel-like as a door opens, which is a great encouragement to enter.”

Hall tips • Dulux’s Design Service can help achieve bright, bold styles or a minimalist look with white and neutral colours • One-off consultation fee £295; initial meetings are free, www.dulux.co.uk


Warm welcome Carpets went out of fashion for a while, as everybody preferred the sleeker, easy-care appeal of wood and laminate flooring, but they’ve been enjoying a comeback of late. Choosing a carpet will certainly help you achieve a ‘warm welcome’, as soft textures are instantly inviting. Also, a splash of texture and colour can be the perfect offset to clinical, minimalist walls. The other options are wood flooring or tiles. Real hardwood flooring can be expensive. But it’s a timeless look that will never go out of fashion. Consider reclaimed timber sourced from your local area: good for the environment and easier on your pocket.

Tiling is a traditional option for hallway floors. Clean, neutral tiles work brilliantly for that minimalist, contemporary look (perhaps consider a colourful rug to break things up). But this is somewhere you could achieve something stunning too, with beautiful, patterned antique-style tiles.

Hall tips • Simple and stunning, wood flooring is ideal for hallways and landings. City Engineered European Family Oak 180mm Oiled Flooring, from £25.47 per sq m, www.ukflooringdirect.co.uk

SIX OF THE BEST FOR THE BEACH

1

Sun Screen BeachBuoy Tablet Waterproof Case Price: £24.95 www.proporta.com

Ray Watcher Oregon Scientific UV Monitor Price: £24.95 www.boysstuff.co.uk

Water Music Pure Oasis Flow Price: £134.90 www.petertyson.co.uk

With your tablet encased in this watertight cover, you’ll be able to take your shiny device down to the beach without any fear of a short circuit. Featuring a double-sided transparent screen, you’ll still be able to use your touchscreen and submerge it in up to 5m of water to capture some underwater action.

There is a fine balance between getting too much sun and just the right amount of vitamin D. But this clever gadget monitors the UV rays and calculates the maximum sun exposure based on the SPF of your suncream together with skin type. It’s ideal for keeping an eye on how long you have been in the sun and knowing when it’s time to go inside for a cocktail!

This rugged DAB radio is happiest when in the great outdoors. A hard case and rubber seals keep the innards safe from the elements. In addition to digital stations, you’ll get access to FM too and you can plug in an external music source such as your smartphone. The Wi-Fi capability of this unit means you can hook up to one of thousands of internet stations, too.

Shade Away Sundome Beach Shelter Price: £30.00 www.cotswoldoutdoor.co.uk

Sand Space Reserved Towel Price: £14.99 www.firebox.com

Play Time Waboba Water Ball Price: £5.99 www.firebox.com

Not simply a shade to keep the sun off your face, this shelter makes a great wind break, too. The dome comes with pegs to secure it to the ground, pockets for storage and a zip at the front to keep your gear a bit more secure when you go off for a dip.

Getting up at the crack of dawn to ensure your space is reserved by the pool is an ageold game played between the nations. But it’s much harder to do this down by the beach. So this very bold statement - made from 100% cotton - will have no one under any illusions as to who is sitting where!

Not all spheres are created equal, as this one, you see, has been crafted to give maximum fun when played in, on, or around water. A Lycra coating makes this palm-sized ball float and bounce on the H2O, skimming across the surface at speed - it’s an absolute must-have.

BeoPlay A3

It's not often we get anything this cool in the studio, but this month Bang & Olufsen of Bournemouth sent us one of the new BeoPlay A3 iPod docs to take for a spin. The new portable sound system from B&O PLAY adds an amazingly rich soundscape to the iPad experience. And it works with your iPad to keep up with every move you can put it through – and still sound great. Our favourite use so far has been following Jamie's 30 minute meal videos in the kitchen! Whether you want to listen to your favourite music, check out the latest film or online video, or hold a FaceTime video conference with your friends, BeoPlay A3 adds an acoustic edge that easily becomes addictive. The deceptively simple design, created by

Danish designer Steffen Schmelling, beautifully conceals everything you don’t need to worry about behind a black frame trimmed in aluminium. After popping in the iPad, BeoPlay A3 is ready to reveal startlingly good sound definition and stereo separation wherever you choose to pick it up and bring it. Weighing in at just 1.5 kg, BeoPlay A3 is designed to make your music mobile. The battery keeps the tunes coming for five hours between charges, and it charges itself as well as your iPad when connected to the mains. BeoPlay A3 is available in black. Priced at £445. from Bang & Olufsen of Bournemouth, 74 Poole Road, Bournemouth BH4 9DZ. Telephone: 01202 752000 or email: bournemouth@bang-olufsen.co.uk

Could It Be Magic Magnetic Ball Clock £16.95 www.gizoo.co.uk This contemporary clock does away with the conventional use of hands and replaces them with a magnetic ball.

Look Into My Eyes Eye Clock £18.99 www.firebox.com Based on a design patented in the 1920s, this quirky timepiece uses a pair of eyes to replicate the time. The left eye represents the hour, and the eye on the right looks to the minutes - sounds simple enough. It might seem a little bemusing at first, but it’s sure to attract some admiring glances.

Of the best gadget clOcks As youngsters we may only care about the big and little hands when it comes to telling the time, but as we get older we appreciate that clocks can make decorative pieces and take pride of place in our homes. We’ve uncovered an eclectic collection of six time machines that not only will help you get a move on in the morning but will quirk up a hallway, office or living space in your abode.

App of the week: SwiftKey X: Free one-month trial on Android Forget unreliable predictive text technology. With SwiftKey X on your Android device, you’ll be typing at surprising speeds in no time. It is powered by natural language technology and understands how words work together - this means that even the most inaccurate typing will make sense, and it also guesses the word you may want next. 84

Eyes Down St Michel Clock Table £89 www.made.com This striking side table just so happens to have a huge clock built under the glass face. The super-stylish tulip-shaped stand completes the quirky clock and we think you’ll be shifting existing furniture to make some space for this pretty decent deal.

Watch The Birdie Modern Cuckoo Clock £149 www.4living.co.uk Each hour you can have an authentic cuckoo call out the time or choose from 12 other bird sounds, all recorded from Mother Nature. You’ll be pleased to hear, though, that a light sensor ensures the avians don’t chirp through the night.

Eyes Left, Then Right Focus Clock £16.99 www.firebox.com Available in three colours, the pendulumlike clock face is modern and will look perfect rocking from side to side in a bedroom, kitchen or office.

For The Kids Gro-clock £29.99 www.gro-store.co.uk The illuminated display indicates when children should be sleeping and when they can get up by using sun and star graphics. The night mode glows blue and the stars count down until the sun comes up. When the clock face turns yellow, it’s wake-up time.

Know your pack drill Make a getaway in style. We reveal the holiday staples you should be packing in your suitcase. With holiday season upon us, it’s officially time to pack for the great escape. But whether you’re driving to the British coast or jetting away to foreign climes, make sure it’s a glamorous getaway. For Europe-bound Brits, the average suitcase is packed with £580 worth of stylish clobber, according to recent research by Very.co.uk. “A summer holiday represents the perfect chance to showcase a hot summer wardrobe,” says Julie Donnelly, head of womenswear at the website. But it’s important not to go overboard and risk losing your holiday spending money at the excess baggage counter. Pack a capsule wardrobe to impress with our practical guide.

plane thinking

Never leave your packing until a few hours before you’re due to check in. Cue snap decisions, highly impractical pieces and forgotten underwear/ swimwear/shoes. Some pre-vacation planning will make pulling holiday ensembles together a breeze on arrival. “When it comes to luggage, aim for streamline,” advises Rachel Zoe, stylist to the stars and author of Style A To Zoe. “Go with cases you can haul effortlessly by yourself and resist over-packing.” Think about where you’re going, for how long, what you’ll be doing and, most importantly, the weather outlook. Your travelling companions should also determine your suitcase essentials. Think accessories aplenty, dresses and heels for a girly trip away and comfort, practicality and flat shoes for active family hols. Assess how travel-friendly fabrics are and how they’ll fare after a stint in the suitcase - nobody wants to spend their holiday at the ironing board. Fine knits, chiffon and denim travel more easily than linen, silk and heavy cotton.

glamour on the go You don’t have to pack everything but the kitchen sink to look vacation-chic. The trick is to select versatile pieces that double up and have more than one purpose. If your destination’s hot, hot, hot, try sheer dresses that you can wear over swimwear by day and over a slip teamed with heels for sunset evenings. Zoe suggests: “Look for tunics, kaftans and sundresses that can serve as dresses or tops. “A fabulous belt can turn a sarong into a dress, so pack one that sits on the waist, in leather or raffia, or a coloured woven or gold chain.” You’re on holiday so ditch the black and dark colours and aim for a suitcase of white and lighter, brighter shades that you usually wouldn’t dare to wear at home or in the office. When it comes to accessories, sandals in pretty metallics can be worn for day or night. Espadrilles and open-toe wedges are also ideal for puddle-free destinations.“Clothes might be minimal, but not jewellery,” Zoe suggests. “Stockpile hoops, anything ethnic and bangles - island cheapies are a great addition.” 90

We let it fast, or we let it free

Amongst all our positive feedback in response to our recent ‘21 Day Promise’, some of our landlords had the following to say…. “We would like to thank Martin & Co Bournemouth for the quick and efficient service that we receive; this has allowed us to increase our rental income as we have fewer void periods.” Mrs K “Being an Estate Agent myself, and Managing Director of a small team in London, dealing with the team at Martin & Co Bournemouth was a very refreshing and comfortable experience. With only a weeks’ notice and receipt of the keys 4 days prior, they managed to find me a good tenant within a few days of my phone call and instruction to let. I was given a full history of the client, a realistic appraisal of my property and advice on how to secure my investment. Throughout, the response and communication I received was excellent and proactive. I would without question recommend this professional and motivated team, and they will manage my property from here onwards” Mr A

“I was amazed at the service provided. I was given excellent information on the current rental market and the price suggested was higher than I have marketed my property at before. I was informed that pre-qualified tenants would be contacted and sure enough, the property was let within a day at the higher price! The 21 Day Promise gave me assurance that they would find the right tenants, fast……and they certainly did! I am now discussing the transfer of my other properties to them as it is clear they are working with my interests, as a landlord, in mind.” Mr H

ASK THE PROPERTY EXPERT

Q A

I hope you can help? My partner and I entered a 12 month Assured Shorthold Tenancy, which contained a break clause at six months. Our tenancy commenced on the 15th January and on the 15th May we gave two months’ notice notifying our landlord we would be using the break clause taking us to the 14th July 2012. We moved out earlier at the Landlords request as they were able to find new tenants to move in from the 15th June. The landlord has now kept our deposit claiming we still owe the rent for the period 15th June to the 14th July as per the terms of the break clause. We are sure this can’t be right and wondered if you were able to advise us.

You are indeed correct. You have correctly served the two months’ notice and therefore you are not in breach of your contract and when your landlord created a new Tenancy Agreement with the new tenant, your obligations as a tenant paying rent ceased and therefore he cannot charge you rent and he has accepted the earlier surrender. Your Deposit should be protected with a scheme and they will request evidence from your landlord to justify the withholding of the deposit back to you. You will also be required to provide evidence such as a copy of the Tenancy Agreement showing the break clause, a copy of your bank statements showing rent paid up to the 15th June 2012 and any email correspondence requesting your permission for the new tenant to move in on the 15th June 2012. You should have heard from the Deposit Scheme by now and if you haven’t I would contact the three schemes to find out which one your landlord has used (assuming you do not have a copy of the Deposit Certificate notifying you where it is protected. It should also be in your Tenancy Agreement). If for any reason the deposit was not protected then you will be able to claim the original deposit back and up to three times the deposit as a fine from your landlord.

ON YOUR BIKE

ANTHONY WARD & STUART HUDSON RAISING MONEY TOWARDS CANCER RESEARCH 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 well-known figure in the footballing community both locally and 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 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 MonteCarlo Rallye country, then the final descent into Monaco.

BATMANS FINAL CALL Christopher Nolan's third Batman film The Dark Knight Rises marks the end of his epic series. As the world prepares to wave farewell to the Caped Crusader, the filmmaker and stars Christian Bale, Tom Hardy and Anne Hathaway reveal why this is the unforgettable conclusion. The wait is over for Batman fans. After four years of rumours, speculation and sneak peeks, one of the most highly-anticipated blockbusters is about to return to the big screen. Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises is the follow-up to his previous two Batman offerings, 2005's Batman Begins and The Dark Knight, in 2008. For the last time, Christian Bale is stepping back into the batsuit, alongside other returning cast members Sir Michael Caine, Gary Oldman

and Morgan Freeman. Sadly, not long after the last film wrapped, Heath Ledger, who played villain The Joker, died of a prescription drug overdose. Nolan decided not to recast the role, and The Joker is not even going to be referenced in the film out of respect for Ledger, who won a posthumous Oscar for the role. Instead there's a host of new faces joining the film, including Anne Hathaway, Tom Hardy, Joseph GordonLevitt and Marion Cotillard. The story begins eight years on from The Dark Knight. During that time, Batman has been keeping a low profile after the woman he loved (Rachel, played by Maggie Gyllenhaal) was killed by the mafia, and being blamed for District Attorney Harvey Dent's death. But now, he is forced out of hiding when a cunning cat burglar and a menacing masked terrorist arrive in town.


ANNE HATHAWAY SELINA KYLE/CATWOMAN Taking on the role previously played by Halle Berry and Michelle Pfeiffer is a nerve-wracking prospect, but Hathaway handled it like a pro. “I was a little nervous coming in as the new kid on the block... But I actually found being the only person in the cast who hadn’t worked with Chris before motivated me to work even harder,” she says. “This was my dream role. When I started off in The Princess Diaries, people kept asking me again and again, ‘Did you grow up dreaming about being a princess?’ And the truthful answer was, ‘No, I want to be Catwoman’.” The actress recalls the first moment she slipped into the figure-hugging catsuit: “The first time I was in it, Christian was in the Batman suit and Tom came out as Bane, and I got a chill. “I remember thinking, ‘This is going to be extraordinary’, and then

because I’m neurotic, I thought, ‘Or we’re going to look like rejects from Hollywood Boulevard!’,” she adds, laughing. Hathaway admits she had to work-out for the role. “It doesn’t really hide much! If you had to wear a catsuit in front of the entire world, I guarantee you would get yourself to the gym.” The 29-year-old star of The Devil Wears Prada and Alice In Wonderland then had to do almost all of her own stunts - in impossibly high heels. “The training was really hard but actually wound up being a lot of fun. I had an absolute blast. I saw it less as a challenge and more as an opportunity to go to a place I had never been required to go before,” she says. “I knew this was going to be some of the most exciting work I’d ever done and I was going to have the time of my life, but my expectations were far exceeded.”

Catwoman

CHRISTIAN BALE

BRUCE WAYNE/BATMAN

138

Welsh-born Bale reveals that we find the Caped Crusader a changed man. "He has lost the one thing that gave him a purpose. Bruce feels absolutely isolated since the tragedy of losing Rachel," he says. "His belief has been rocked, and that has caught up with him, physically and emotionally." The 38-year-old actor, who won an Oscar last year for his role in The Fighter, had no qualms about the final farewell to his iconic alter-ego: "When Chris says it's time to say goodbye, it's time to say goodbye," he says. The star of box office hits such as Empire Of The Sun, The Fighter and American Psycho has portrayed Batman in each of Nolan's films. So he felt quite emotional when he changed out of his costume at the end of the shoot. "It was very bittersweet when I took off the cowl for the last time, because it's meant so much to me to play this character," he admits. "It never stopped giving me goosebumps to stand in that suit, because I recognise the honour of having portrayed this icon. And I can't help but feel immensely proud."


CHRISTOPHER NOLAN DIRECTOR

Nolan could be forgiven for wanting to bow out at the highest point with his third Batman film, The Dark Knight Rises. The London-born filmmaker, who steps behind the cameras once again to direct, write and co-produce the latest instalment, believes it is the right time to bring the curtain down on the rebooted series. “I’ve been working on Batman for almost ten years. It has been incredible and it has definitely been a journey. Now it’s over and I leave it with a certain amount of sadness,” he reveals. Nolan says the third is most definitely worth the wait. “We were all very excited to bring this tale full circle. That was our chief inspiration for returning to Gotham,” he says. “It has been an extremely gratifying experience. We are very proud of this ending, and we hope the audience shares our excitement.”

TOM HARDY BAINE Hardy, who plays Batman’s new arch-nemesis, was offered a role in The Dark Knight Rises after impressing Nolan on Inception - and said yes, despite being kept in the dark about his character. “Chris wasn’t sure I’d be interested because I’d have to wear a mask for several months. He wouldn’t tell me anything else about the character, except that he was a very bad guy,” he recalls. “I said, ‘Let me get this straight. You want me to come work with you, travel around the world, have a stunt team and all the weapons I could possibly want to play with, and all I have to do is wear a mask? I’m in!’” Describing Bane, the English actor says: “He’s a

terrorist in both his mentality and his actions. He is physically intimidating and also very intelligent, which makes him even more dangerous.” The 34-year-old, who previously starred in Warrior and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, didn’t even mind the vice-like metal mask, which Bane wears because of injuries he suffered years ago. “I didn’t feel limited by the mask. What’s cool about it is, as soon as you put it on, you become the character. The first time I saw Christian in the make-up chair, I arrogantly thought to myself, ‘I can handle him’,” Hardy says. “And then on the set, Batman showed up. It wasn’t Christian Bale any more, he absolutely was Batman.”

New chef carves his ‘magic’

AT BEALES GOURMET A new head chef with a flair for Heston-style chemistry has joined Beales Gourmet Catering and the Italian Villa in Poole. Maciek Kijewski (nicknamed Magic by colleagues), 29, is fusing traditional English food with a touch of Italian and modern, molecular cookery – creating unusual textures and tastes such as foams, fizzes and jellies. He said: “As well as creating lovely flavours, I’m an artist – every plate we serve should be a work of art. I love food, I love experimenting with new ideas and am creating new dishes in my head all the time - it’s not unusual for me to dream up recipes in my sleep. I share Tony Beales’ ethos of serving top quality seasonal food and hope to put myself forward for some big competitions such as MasterChef over the coming years.” Maciek, who moved to the UK from Poland in 2004, has a wealth of experience; as well as having worked as senior sous chef at the Marriott Hotel, he’s cooked aboard HMS Ark Royal and catered a series of large events at the Top Gear Racing Circuit, the Henley Royal Regatta and Eastbourne Tennis. The father of one has already developed a Beales signature dish... lamb with a beetroot and black onion seed mash, star anise-infused squash puree and minted broad bean & pea dressing Maciek will lead the busy team at Beales Gourmet, creating bespoke menus both for events at the Italian Villa and the numerous external venues where Beales Gourmet provide their exquisite catering services. It has been a remarkable journey for hospitality guru Tony Beales who has progressed from being an approved caterer for the Italian Villa at Compton Acres in 2007 to taking over its day-to-day running in 2010. After 15 years working as a chef in Michelin stared restaurants, 5 star hotels and on board on luxury private yachts, Tony launched Beales Gourmet from his home in 2005 and has organically grown the business to where it is today, employing 15 full time and 20 casual staff year round. The company has been on an incredible journey over the past 7 years gathering more and more corporate contracts and private clients each year. A major part of the company is the management of the exclusive Italian Villa at Compton Acres in Canford Cliffs, Poole where once upon a time Beales were just on a caterers list before being approached to lease the building and run the entire venue, which is where the business is based today. Tony’s catering business has a strong reputation and, in addition to regular weddings and events, Beales Gourmet recently catered the Sand Pole VIP hospitality and will be once again catering for the prestigious Dorset Business Awards at the Lighthouse in November this year. The Italian Villa, which has more than 80 weddings booked for 2012, has two suites licensed for civil ceremonies of up to 250 people and a bar suite accommodating 250 people with direct access to the Italian Garden. The Villa was built eight years ago to compliment the beautiful and historic Grade II Listed Compton Acres gardens.

COTTONWOOD BOUTIQUE HOTEL This weeks HOUSE magazine food review was at the Garden Restaurant at The Cottonwood Boutique Hotel. By Ross Stallion

On walking in to the hotel it's immediately apparent that this isn't like the average shoreline run of the mill hotel you tend to find across Bournemouth.The wow factor is truly evident and the decor is truly amazing and very pink. You first stumble into the uber cool Bar Vista and terrace garden which is most definitely the ideal meeting place for all ages enjoying breathtaking panoramic bay views from its spectacular location metres from the cliff top and it offers contemporary, exciting brasserie food all day. You can also hire the library for an intimate private family meal or event which I thought was a great idea. If could describe this place in two words they would be contemporary decadence. It seriously has the wow factor. The Garden Restaurant is located downstairs just past the suit of armour! The incredible views over the gardens and cliff top strike you as soon as you enter. The decor is again pink and floral but very striking and welcoming. We were warmly greeted by the restaurant manager and the staff who were very friendly and helpful, it was a breath of fresh air as to how nice everyone was. We were doing a review on the new wine and dine menu, where you get 3 courses and a glass of wine for only £14.95. For starters we had the prawn cocktail and the roasted vine toasted tomato soup , both of these were great and left us wanting more. Main courses were stuffed chicken breast , roasted courgette salad and lemon dressing and a char grilled sirloin steak with hand cut chips, both were great and we would recommend these dishes to the world. Finally for desserts we ordered milk chocolate mousse with blood orange syrup and a Cotton Wood apple and calvados tart with summer berries which neither of us could fault. Yummy. 144

In a nut shell for £14.95 a head you can’t go wrong, great food, great location and great service. We then moved to the bar upstairs which overlooks the sea and sank a few glasses of wine as the sun set. I honestly believe that we have discovered Bournemouth's hidden gem, a great place to eat, great value for money, amazing service with fantastic decor and views of the sea - what more can you ask for? Don't take my word for it, pay day is on the horizon so why don't you give your loved ones, or even just yourself, a real treat. This restaurant is something different from the rest, something better than most, just make sure you book in advance.


FACE FACTS Owner of Chic Beauty Salon & Chic Academy, Sophie Tamagna talks about the latest craze to hit the Hollywood A-list. The Oxygen Facial.

PURE OXYGEN Eva Longoria loves it, Brad Pitt is a fan and Madonna has three machines so she can do it herself. It’s the latest craze to hit the Hollywood A-list. The Oxygen Facial. These facials are the new black, mainly due to their instant effects - they promise to plump and hydrate skin, and smooth fine lines and wrinkles. A big hit on the set of Sex and the City apparently (well, smoother plumped up skin is a great base for makeup). Brides love them as the perfect pep up before walking down the aisle. They have even been credited as the secret of Madonna’s younger-looking skin.

FACT

maintenance of skin cells in the human body. With age, skin looses its ability to retain and utilize Oxygen for normal metabolic processes, such as repair and regeneration. When oxygen is lacking at the cellular level, our skin begins to age—sometimes prematurely. Facials with Oxygen help nourish and rejuvenate dull skin. Also as we age, oxygen does not reach our skin cells as efficiently, which is what leads to the aging process. The result can be thinner skin and the appearance of wrinkles and age spots. An oxygen facial will replenish the amount of oxygen that the skin receives, leaving it hydrated, plumper and younger looking. So basically an Oxygen facial treatment will purify, detoxify, stimulate circulation, improve circulation, heal the skin, prevent skin damage, revitalize the skin and soften lines and wrinkles.

WE LOVE...

APPROXIMATELY OF THE MASS OF THE HUMAN BODY IS OXYGEN Ok the basics behind this amazing facial treatment - our skin needs oxygen to survive, reproduce and regenerate. In younger skin, this process is very efficient, but as we age, the micro capillaries degenerate and skin does not receive the nourishment it needs. As a result, the metabolism of our skin cells slows collagen and elastin content drops and fine lines, discolouration and wrinkles begin to appear. Sun exposure, air pollution, extreme hot and cold variances, diet fluctuations, worry and day-to-day stresses and strains of life affect the condition of your skin. Adding oxygen to your facial treatment will soothe and refresh your skin naturally. Oxygen is essential to the health and

WHICH OF THESE

5 REASONS MOTIVATE YOU?

Let’s face it, most people dislike exercise. Or at least they think they do. They say it takes up too much time, they don’t like to get sweaty, or maybe they’re so out-of-shape that exercise hurts. Or maybe they’d just rather lie on the couch and eat cake. I think that anyone who says they don’t like exercise is really saying that they don’t have any motivation. Motivation is what gets you to stick with an exercise routine—even when it’s the last thing you feel like doing. There isn’t a one-size-fits-all answer for motivation, since different things motivate different people. Try the following 7 reasons on for size and discover what motivates you:

HEALTH

The long list of health benefits attributed to exercise should be enough motivation for anyone. Physical activity helps you achieve and maintain a healthy weight. It also helps lower bad cholesterol, triglycerides, and blood pressure, while improving the amount of good cholesterol in your body. Additionally, exercise strengthens your bones and muscles, lowers your risk of cancer, decreases stress, helps you battle depression, and even improves your sex life.

MAKING PROGRESS

When it comes to exercise, many people find it helpful to track their progress so they can see where they started and how far they go over time. Seeing improvements reminds you that your hard work is worth the effort. Perhaps you were only able to walk a mile, now you’re able to run two! Maybe you weighed in at 250 pounds, and now

you’re down to 215! Track your progress using a regular journal, phone app, or fitness website. This is a great way to stay motivated and to remind yourself that while you may not notice your progress, you’re making progress every day!

CONVENIENCE

Many people don’t stick with an exercise routine when it becomes inconvenient for them. Whether you face a schedule change or don’t have time to drive to the gym, it’s important (and possible) to find a time and place that work best for you and your busy lifestyle. Just remember to be flexible! If you’re too tired at the end of the day, try waking up a few minutes early to fit in a workout.

ENJOYMENT

If exercise is a bore for you, find a way to make it fun. Everyone likes doing things they enjoy. You might hate running but enjoy swimming or riding a bike. Perhaps you don’t like being alone and would rather be social. So join a team! Or maybe you don’t like the idea of driving all the way to the gym, changing out, and exercising with a crowd. Find out when your local gym is least populated, and hit the weights then. Do what’s most fun for you and you’ll be less likely to stop.

GOAL ACHIEVEMENT

If you’re just getting started in the world of exercise, a good place to start is by setting goals. How much weight would you like to lose? How far would you like to run? Working towards a goal is a great motivator. However, don’t set up for failure by striving after unrealistic goals. Do this and you’ll soon feel overwhelmed and give up altogether. To avoid this, set realistic milestones. When you reach them, enjoy your accomplishment and then set new goals to take your good health even further.

MOTORING NEWS

AMPERA EARTH DEBUT Vauxhall has just introduced the electricpowered Ampera Earth, priced at £29,995 including Plug in Car Grant.

The latest news on all things motoring By Nick Fletcher

ASTON MARTIN V12 VANTAGE ROADSTER

Ampera Earth is the entry level model in Vauxhall’s E-REV line up, which also includes Positiv and Electron trims. With standard features such as DAB, 7-inch touch screen display and Bluetooth, the Earth is generously equipped, and retains the powertrain of higher spec variants. The Ampera range is currently offered through a 24-strong dealer network. Offering a personalised level of customer care, each retailer has four specialists, two in sales and two in aftersales. Strong regional coverage will enable 95 per cent of Ampera owners to reach a specialist retailer within a one-hour drive. In addition retailers will also provide a free collection and delivery service for scheduled servicing, warranty and repair work.

Aston Martin has unveiled its new V12 Vantage Roadster, priced at £150,000. The V12 Vantage Roadster’s 6.0-litre engine, mated as in the Coupe to a six-speed manual gearbox, generates 517 hp. The 0-60 mph takes just 4.5 seconds while top speed is 190 mph. While the Roadster naturally shares much of the technical and specification features of the V12 Vantage Coupe, some elements are redesigned to take account of the Roadster’s packaging and dynamics. The model features a redesigned rear boot lid and lower front air intake to maintain a level of dynamic performance that’s fully in keeping with the V12 Coupe, while there are also a number of unique chassis revisions. These include a modified rear damper set-up, front and rear damper valve tuning and a new rear spring design. Styled to be "as beautiful as it is potent", the new Roadster boasts a number of eye-catching additions that underline its sporty characteristics. Carbon fibre side strakes; a carbon fibre front splitter and rear diffuser; carbon fibre mirror caps and carbon fibre rear lamp infills – plus the new forged alloy wheel design – should leave the sports car cognoscenti in no doubt that this is a truly exclusive Aston Martin. At the rear, the boot lid on the V12 Vantage Roadster incorporates a more pronounced ‘flip’ to reduce rear lift

UPGRADED MAZDA MX-5

and improve stability at high speeds. The V12’s diffuser houses a large, centre-mounted oil

cooler and two large tail-pipe finishers. Inside, there are other distinguishing features that make the new car stand out from its illustrious siblings in the sought-after Aston Martin V8 Vantage and V12 Vantage line-up. Subtle additions such as the use of glass switches in the lower centre stack help highlight the luxurious ambience in the V12Vantage Roadster cabin.

Like all Vauxhall cars, the Ampera is backed by a Lifetime/100,000 mile new vehicle warranty, while, the battery system has an eight year/100,000 mile warranty, transferable to subsequent owners.

"THE V12 VANTAGE MODELS ARE, FIRST AND FOREMOST, DRIVER’S CARS" Unique to the V12 Vantage and new V12 Vantage Roadster is the engine’s “Sport” mode button, which enables the driver to select between two different powertrain modes. Normal mode is the default from start-up and provides not only a more relaxed throttle response but also a quieter, more refined exhaust note. This creates a more progressive throttle response, suited to ‘everyday’ situations such as when driving in heavy traffic. Sport mode, meanwhile, is designed for use in more dynamic driving situations

A new, upgraded version of the world’s bestselling open-top sportscar, the Mazda MX-5, is now rolling off the assembly line in Japan and will go on sale in the UK later this year. The upgraded MX-5 has enhanced safety features and refined driving attributes, together with exterior and interior improvements to make the Roadster Coupe and the classic Soft-top models even more attractive. Exterior changes include a new, more aggressive front bumper design that also improves aerodynamic performance, and the availability of a striking new Dolphin Grey Mica paint finish. Inside, the panel décor and matching steering wheel spokes have been upgraded for an improved cabin ambience. The upgraded version is now even more responsive

where sharper responses are required. It has a number of tangible effects on the power train including a sharper throttle response, with the engine delivering more torque during the early stages of throttle pedal travel. Aston Martin Chief Executive Officer Dr Ulrich Bez said: “The V12 Vantage models are, first and foremost, driver’s cars – inviting and fully rewarding the driver’s full involvement. “The addition to our range of this exceptional new Roadster allows the driver and passenger to experience full ‘sensory overload’ thanks to its outstanding performance.”

to driver inputs. Throttle pedal actuation has been modified on manual transmission models, increasing the feeling of linear acceleration and giving the driver even more control when accelerating from lower speeds, on winding country roads, for example. The characteristics of the vacuum brake-booster have been revised to optimise brake return control, which is especially beneficial when the driver brakes while entering a curve. The new acceleration control then kicks-in when the driver backs off the brake and steps on the accelerator again. Taken together, these two new upgrades make braking more controllable and acceleration after braking both smoother and faster, says Mazda.

NEW FICTION

The Yard by Alex Grecian is published in hardback by Michael Joseph, £12.99. Available now.

XO by Jeffery Deaver is published in hardback by Hodder & Stoughton, £18.99. Available now.

Damn His Blood by Peter Moore is published in hardback by Chatto & Windus, £16.99. Available now.

From the critically acclaimed author of the graphic comic book series Proof comes a debut novel about one of the most torrid and popular periods in British history. Alex Grecian, formerly an advertising executive for household names such as Harley-Davidson, depicts a city in lawless agony. In the aftermath of the Ripper murders, London is in the throes of a violent crime wave. The newly minted Murder Squad of Scotland Yard must do all they can to stem the flow of blood. When a Yard detective is found dead in a steamer trunk with his eyes and lips sewn shut, the Murder Squad’s newest recruit Walter Day must contend with a brutal and complex case. With the aid of Dr Bernard Kingsley, the Yard’s first forensic pathologist, and utilising hitherto unheard-of investigative techniques such as fingerprinting, Day delves into the heinous crime with shocking results. Wonderfully evocative and artfully introducing the science of criminology, The Yard is a gripping page-turner.

King of suspense Jeffery Deaver promised that he would alternate books about quadriplegic detective Lincoln Rhyme and Kathryn Dance, a body analysis expert with the California Bureau of Investigation, and he has remained true to his word. One of the genre’s most prolific writers, XO follows The Burning Wire in 2010 featuring Rhyme and Carte Blanche - the latest instalment in the James Bond series, published in 2011. In XO, Dance finds herself in the right place at the right time when her country singer friend Kayleigh Towne reveals she is being stalked by an obsessed fan, shortly before a homecoming concert. Despite being off-duty, Dance jumps into action when one of Towne’s crew is killed, echoing the lyrics of one of her own songs. Fans of Deaver - a folk singer who has gone to the effort of writing 11 ‘Towne’ tracks and even recorded an accompanying album - will enjoy the thrills and spills with his latest book, even if they have an inkling of what to expect, but this is also ideal for those wanting an introduction into his works.

New author Peter Moore makes a strong debut with Damn His Blood, a historical reconstruction of a country parson’s mysterious death in the early 1800s. Aided by maps, parish reports, legal documents and contemporary newspaper clippings, Moore investigates how cultural disagreement over tithes in a paranoid, xenophobic Worcestershire farming community grew to result in murder, and the authorities’ subsequent struggle to bring the culprit to justice. As well as the lure of a grisly narrative - who is not intrigued by a murder mystery? - university lecturer Moore packs his book with period detail, striving to provide a clear picture of an English rural society struggling to reconcile tradition with technological and political revolution, using only words recorded by witnesses and major players at the time. Both fascinating and informative, fans of The Suspicions Of Mr Whicher are bound to enjoy this meticulously researched and utterly absorbing non-fiction tale.

The Hunter by John Lescroart is published in paperback by Headline, priced £12.99. Available now.

You Came Back by Christopher Coake is published in paperback by Viking, priced £12.99. Available now.

Wife 22 by Melanie Gideon is published in hardback by HarperCollins, priced £12.99. Available now.

The New York Times best-selling author returns with another crime thriller set in San Francisco. Forty-something private investigator Wyatt Hunt owns a company with a healthy caseload. However, his comfortable life takes an unexpected turn when he receives an anonymous text message: “How did your mother die?” From an early age, Hunt knew he was adopted, enjoying a happy existence with his only known family. So who sent the text and ultimately, who was his birth mother? Calling on his contacts from his former workplace the Child Protective Services, Hunt searches for his parents. Shocked by the findings that his birth mother was murdered when he was three years old, Hunt seeks the help of his friend Inspector Devin Juhle to investigate further. As the pair trawl through the 40-year-old police reports, they uncover more than a murder, but also betrayal, greed, conspiracy and cults. A fast-paced book from John Lescroart with an intricate plot.

Following high praise for his short stories, Christopher Coake’s first novel You Came Back doesn’t disappoint. The story takes place several years after the accidental death of Mark and Chloe’s much-loved seven-year-old son, Brendan. Mark and Chloe have since divorced and Mark believes he has conquered his emotions as he rebuilds his life with new girlfriend Allison. However, when a mysterious stranger turns up out of the blue saying that she has bought Mark’s old house, the shock doesn’t end there. She is also adamant Brendan’s ghost haunts the building. Little do Mark, Chloe or Allison realise just how much their lives are about to change. Is Brendan trying to reach them from beyond the grave? This novel exposes the raw nerve endings of love, life and death and will stay with you long after you’ve turned the last page.

The second novel from Melanie Gideon entitled Wife 22 is a refreshing and funny read about a woman named Alice Buckle. Alice is a part-time drama teacher, mum to two children, and wife to William. She’s also a woman going through a slight mid-life crisis after finally reaching the age at which her mum died. Subsequently, Alice has found herself bored with her life, conjuring up anxieties about her son’s sexuality and daughter’s eating habits, not to mention the growing void between her and her husband. When a marriage survey pops up unexpectedly in her inbox, Alice can’t resist taking part, and as she delves further into her innermost thoughts, feelings and memories about her life and relationships, she finds herself increasingly drawn to the mysterious Researcher 101. Interspersed with Alice’s online exploits, Wife 22 is a witty and well-written reflection on modern-day marriages, that examines powerful questions about love and family.

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!

Sevens Boatshed is, quite simply, a stunning venue for every type of guest. They have something here for everyone. Everything is made from fresh; even the bread is baked by their own baker. The menus are tailored to cater for a wide range of customers, complemented by a selection of fine wines, handpicked from around the world. Even the coffee blend is specially roasted for them. If you fancy heading down in the evening for dinner or even just drinks with friends, you can sample their wide range of selected spirits along with the new cocktail list, whilst enjoying our Boatshed LIVE music (Every Thursday & Friday from 8-11pm). You can enjoy all of our fabulous offerings and excellent service while soaking up some of the best waterside views Dorset can offer.

The Aruba concept is reflected in its every aspect from location and interior, food, drinks, music and merchandise to employee training. Aruba’s employees are highly trained and committed, professionally dedicated to assuring that all their diners and visitors have a totally enjoyable and memorable experience at Aruba. Aruba is a stylish beach haven; highlights include a sun terrace, day beds, 180 degree ocean views, swing seats, snug, tropical palm trees, cocktail bar, and al fresco and indoor open and private dining areas. Evenings will see part of the space used by some of the country’s best DJ’s and musicians with a dance floor at the side. Aruba is open daily from 9am till late with food served all day from a vibrant fusion international menu prepared with the finest ingredients.
