Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th September from 10am4pm. For more information call 01202 700771 or visit: www.keydrummond.com

Reflection Bay, Lagoon Road, Lilliput BH14 8JT

Berkeleys Estate Agents, a member of the Guild of Professional Estate Agents, announces an exclusive Luxury Property Show in London this Autumn. Berkeleys is offering home sellers in Canford Cliffs, Branksome Park, Sandbanks, Lilliput and Lower Parkstone, the opportunity to showcase their homes via this exceptional marketing platform. Hosted at Berkeleys associate office on Park Lane, vendors will tap in to the lucrative London, national and international property market. John Jennings of Berkeleys says: “One of the many benefits of being a part of the Guild of Professional Estate Agents is that we have access to one of London’s most prestigious office locations within the Guild partner network. The Park Lane office allows us to utilise a flagship showroom to showcaseberkeleys residential homes to London based buyers, home search

agents and investors. The continued growth in the London property market has made prime regional property in this local area look increasingly good value for money. As well as presenting an attractive investment to second home owners, many London families chose this area of Dorset to relocate to for the excellent secondary schools, access to a coastal lifestyle and sailing, yet offering close proximity to the countryside too. Along with presenting prime property details, the Berkeleys team will be highlighting the many benefits of living on the beautiful South Coast. Approx. 90 minutes commute from the capital by train, or a two hour drive, the Canford Cliffs and Sandbanks region of Dorset is conveniently located and thus holds a well-established link with the capital. The Sandbanks Peninsular attracts ongoing national media attention as its’

many superhomes present the ultimate luxury lifestyle to holiday home buyers. London show visitors will also be able to enjoy Berkeleys recently published book for a glimpse into the history and heritage of Canford Cliffs and Sandbanks along with pictures on show from their heritage exhibition. It is the enjoyment these heritage assets like the chines, the pines and the local architecture that has drawn property buyers to the area for many decades. Home owners considering the sale of their home should contact John Jennings immediately on +44 (1202) 708383 to find out more about showcasing their property or visit the Berkeleys website: www. berkeleys.com for more details. Berkeleys will be revealing many of the South Coast’s most appealing luxury properties on 30th October, 2012 at 121 Park Lane, London, W1K 7AG

you will be delighted to hear Miller Homes customers in general seem to like the buying experience with over 95% saying they would recommend Miller Homes to their best friend and the company has a 5 star award for customer satisfaction. “This is a great time to buy because purchasers who buy off plan can get the pick of the plots and have a say on personalising their new home depending on the build stage, added John. “You can also have the fantastic

experience of seeing your home being built and check on its progress.” Miller Homes are delighted to be working in partnership with Raglan Housing Association at The Parsonage to build 38 homes in total. The development is open from Thursday to Monday 10am to 5pm – telephone 01202 483973 or email theparsonage@miller. co.uk. Alternatively you can contact Connells the selling agents on 01202 483344 to book a viewing appointment.

OPEN FOR BUSINESS AT THE PARSONAGE

The Parsonage, the Miller Homes’ development in Bronte Avenue Christchurch is now open for business. “We had a fantastic response to our opening day with around 30 people visiting,” says John Taylor, Regional Sales Manager. “We have currently released two and three bedroom homes with prices ranging from £217,950 to £249,950 and for homes between 747 sq.ft and 937 sq. ft these represent excellent value for money.” The Parsonage

currently has funding for NewBuy and MiWay, two schemes that can potentially help a purchaser buy a brand new home in this wonderful location so do ask for full terms and conditions. The NewBuy scheme is designed to help overcome what can be a difficult deposit gap in today’s mortgage market and can be used by those who already own their home, first time buyers or those who only have funds for a 5% deposit. The scheme allows a loan to be secured

at 95% of the value of the property. Anyone who qualifies for MiWay only has to fund 85% of the purchase price now and Miller Homes will provide a loan of up to 15% for the remainder of the price. After 10 years, or when you sell or transfer your home, you simply pay back the 15% or the percentage you qualified for of your home’s market value in one payment at that time. There is no interest to pay for the first 5 years. As well as building quality homes

Shades of Grey

FIFTY SHADES OF GREY Fifty Shades Of Grey is a best-seller with its tale of seduction, and just as irresistible is the trend for shades of grey in interiors. We explore the sophisticated power of grey and how it transforms rooms.

8

Grey's so sexy and sophisticated - no, calm down, dear, not the masterful hero of best-selling novel, 50 Shades Of Grey - but the decor colour. Millions of women may be swooning over Christian Grey and his wooing of Anastasia Steele, but designers have taken all shades of grey to heart. Once an overlooked 'wallflower' section on the colour chart, grey's shed it's cold, boring, institutional image, and is proving it's power to transform any setting, not just a playroom! Flirting with its subtle, versatile tones, from crisp charcoal and French grey to shimmering silver and mysterious smoke-grey could be just the way to turn up the heat at home. "Grey is a surprisingly calming and harmonious colour to live with, but you must choose the right tone," advises Mark Upstone, head of global visual display at The Conran Shop. "Greys with more brown

SEDUCTIVE SETTING in the mix will feel warm - white based greys will feel colder. "Be bold. Don't restrict yourself to a feature wall, grey looks better en masse, and use different finishes of the same tone to create intriguing interest and depth." Give grey a starring role by using it on walls and paintwork, he suggests, with a paint such as Farrow & Ball's Down Pipe matt emulsion, and a matching gloss paint finish for woodwork. If that feels too overpowering, tone it down with pastels, white or a zingy kick of sharp citrus, which will ensure it has less of a masculine edge. "Dark grey is the perfect colour to showcase artwork, pictures and mirrors on your walls. It's far more effective than white as it makes them stand out," he says. "Alternatively, put the focus on a piece of grey furniture, or enhance a setting with accessories. Make a statement by painting a front door grey - it's this season's black - and you'll ensure you make an entrance, simple, stylish and very current." Grey's full of surprises and won't fail to seduce any setting, so follow the guide to taking advantage of its charms.

Transform a stuck-in-a-rut bedroom palette with greys in decor or silky fabrics to bring an air of relaxation to an uptight setting. Hang drapery panels which puddle on the floor to frame your windows with a layer of textured sheers behind them for the ultimate in privacy. “We’ve seen a fast-growing trend for using grey in bedroom interiors over the past year,” says Jeremy Borlant, designer and partner at Seymours of Darlington. “Grey tones in fabrics and wallpapers create a glamorous and striking effect, especially paired with pattern and texture. “It’s a chic, streamlined look which also taps into the five-star ‘hotel’ trend which will be very evident in interiors this autumn. Dress a bed appropriately in shades of grey Astoria bedlinen from the Kylie Minogue at Home range from Seymours of Darlington. Stunning contmporary bed handmade and manufactured in Italy. Your bedroom will gain some modern Italian finesse with this brilliant addition! Upholstered smaller detailing such as the gold touches on the feet define this piece’s exquisite quality. Beautiful! £5800 from Beautiful Modern Thing.


TEASING TOUCHES Subtle hints of grey add intriguing interest to rooms and snazzy grey seating is sure to be useful. A Scilla Knitted floor cushion, £39.98, B&Q (available October), is a winner on style and price. Descartes 3 Seater In Ash from www.sofa.com, £1670. Lighting's key for atmosphere and a Zinc wall light, £59, Idyll Home has a chic industrial look. Dim the lights with a Tamsin tripod table lamp, in warm grey, £39 from made.com. Humour's just as seductive as colour. Combine the two with a witty and timely take on the trend, a poster entitled Fifty Shades of Grey, full grey colour chart, £10.95, The Literary Gift Company.

FURNISHING AFFAIR

10

Texture, shape and symmetry are vital ingredients for successful grey sanctuaries, says Jane Cowdry, founder of soft furnishings online boutique, Lily Matthews. "The key to using grey is layering and texture," she advises. "Using one tone throughout will look flat and dull but mix in wool, silk, linen, and velvet and you have a sophisticated uplifting room. "This season, splashes of colour are an antidote to our winter gloom and almost anything goes with greys. Pinks always sit well, or you could be a little adventurous and choose a vibrant raspberry, deep purple or burnt orange and soft yellows for a lovely contrast. "Grey works in modern and older properties, and will look as beautiful in a minimalist setting matched with sleek white shelving as it will with period wood panelling and mahogany furniture." Turn on to grey: Tango Extending Dining Table, ÂŁ1090 from www.gomodern.co.uk . Alternatively, sit demurely on a chic Dali chair, ÂŁ399, from Very.


or make a statement with a Himla wool rug in a selection of colours, £116 from www.livinginstore. com . Clutter needn't spoil the serenity of this look if it's safely tucked away in a grey felt magazine holder, £19.99 from www.tch.net. Luxurious Gold And Grey Damask Silk Cushions With Piped Silk Edging from as little as £26, www.moghulinteriors.com. Mono drawers finished in macho dark grey and tweed, £60, Matalan.

FACE THE WALL If you're committing to a new relationship with this colour, the best place to start is with the walls. "Grey is a wonderful colour with so many nuances, from soft, pinky 'dove greys' to deep charcoal tones," says Edward Bulmer, director of specialist paint company, Pots of Paint. "To find the one grey you love - experiment! Try colours in different tones by using sample pots, but ensure you see how they change with the light in your home throughout the day. "It also works well to simply paint one wall in your chosen grey and use it as a backdrop to a focus piece of furniture such as a striking sofa or sideboard." Turn on to grey: B&Q's excellent grey paint range, features one particular star, Colours matt emulsion in grey slate, £13.98 for 2.5 litres, which perfectly complements a grey wallpaper scattered with yellow canaries, Colours Opera Aviary wallpaper, £8.98 a roll, available from October. Conjure a silvan forest with Mirage wallpaper, £27 a roll by Graham & Brown, from Littlewoods, or flirt with florals by featuring 'Crush' wallpaper, with its elegant design of silvery roses on a grey background, from £66 per roll. It's in the Carlucci di Chivasso Curious Wallpaper collection at JAB Anstoetz. Grey's a perfect partner for practical areas. Artisan tiles, in five soft, organic-wash shades including French Grey, from £83 a square metre, Laura Ashley.

Our kids will soon set off to college and uni and their new rooms will be their sanctuary, social and (occasional) study/sleeping space! We have done our homework on the best kit for smart students. It may feel like just last week that you were waving them off on their first day of primary school, now suddenly your son or daughter’s all grown up and off to university. Your duties as a parent are far from over yet though. While decorating their nursery might be a distant cherished memory, now you can help pick out items for their new living quarters. Your pockets may already be feeling lighter, especially if you’ve had to fork out for tuition fees and books, but helping your teenager turn their new digs into a cosy and functional home-from-home is sure to be appreciated and will make you feel better too. Smart bedding, throws, cushions, funky desk accessories and posters (take Blu-Tack as drawing pins

are rarely allowed) can hide a multitude of sins and the decor disasters inflicted by previous occupants. “College rooms can be small and bare with various colour tones on the wall, so it’s important to avoid clashing colours and add a bit of fun to give the room a homely feel,” says Ben de Lisi, designer at Debenhams.

“Try to stick to monochrome and introduce quirky designs which will instantly transform the space and make it personal.” So make sure they get a first-class degree in room style by choosing from a selection of student-chic buys, which won’t break the bank of mum and dad!

Boost your patio bulbs for spring Tips on how to perk up your patio pots with bulbs which will provide a welcome burst of colour next year - plus, find out what else needs doing in the garden this month. If your summer pots are looking straggly and tired, bite the bullet, bin the summer bedding and make a head start by filling your containers with spring bulbs. Bulbs often do better in containers than in the ground, as you can control drainage better and plant them in gritty compost which gives them more chance of success. Ideally, daffodils, crocuses and hyacinths should be planted by the end of September, although they can be planted later. Tulips should be planted in late October or November, as they need a drop in temperature to root well. Planting in lower temperatures may also reduce the chances of them getting a fungal disease called tulip blight (Botrytis tulipae), which can rot the bulbs or cause lesions on the leaves. Don’t be fooled into thinking that spring bulbs in pots should all be of the dwarf variety. While there’s few prettier sights than a mass of deep blue muscari filling a small traditional terracotta pot, don’t be afraid of planting big, bold bulbs en masse in bigger pots because, provided they are in a fairly sheltered spot away from strong winds, they should give you a stunning display. Crown imperials (Fritillaria imperialis) look impressive planted in groups of three in large metal containers in a contemporary setting, alongside trimmed box and other architectural plants, while narcissi with stout stems, such as N. ‘Bridal Crown’, will provide long-lasting blooms and won’t topple over in cooler situations.

I love the strong form of the Darwin tulips, which can reach 50-60cm in height and bloom from mid to late spring. They are how you would expect a tulip to look, with no frills or blousy flowers. A surefire winner is Tulipa ‘Queen Of Night’, with its strong stems carrying silky purple-black flowers. I prefer to plant it as a single variety, without any plant partners, and place it against a white wall to show off its deep, rich colour to its best. Many gardeners opt for layering bulbs for a continuous display throughout spring. This is done by planting a variety of bulbs at different depths in 36

the pot. For instance, in a large container insert larger bulbs such as tulips, covering them in compost, then add another layer of medium-sized bulbs such as dwarf narcissi and cover these, then finally add small bulbs such as crocuses or snowdrops and top them with a final layer of compost. The bulbs nearer the top will flower first, then as they die down they will be replaced by the medium bulbs, which will in turn be replaced by the larger bulbs later in the season. Recipes might include Scilla siberica on the top layer, Narcissus ‘Tete a Tete’ in the middle layer and Tulipa ‘Golden Apeldoorn’ on the bottom layer, but there are many other possibilities. When planting bulbs, place crocks in the bottom of the pot, add 15-20cm of multi-purpose compost with added John Innes or bulb fibre and begin your layering, nestling late-flowering bulbs into the surface of the compost and adding compost just to cover the bulbs or leave the tips showing. If you leave pots outside in the winter, don’t let them become sodden. Stand the pots on feet to allow the moisture to drain through. However, don’t let the pots dry out either or it will lead to stunted growth and flowers which wilt quickly. It’s a good bet to put the pots by the house in winter, moving them to expose them to the elements from February onwards, so they don’t dry out. Once the bulbs are in flower, water them every other day.

GOOD ENOUGH TO EAT They’re the perfect summer veg, sliced diagonally, brushed with olive oil, garlic and seasoning and bunged on the barbecue or griddle. Alternatively, slice them lengthways, make a ridge all the way down the middle and stuff them with fresh tomatoes, garlic and olive oil before sticking them in the oven for 20 minutes. Some people even deep-fry the flowers. Courgettes are also really easy to grow, although you should give yourself plenty of room as the yellow flowers are enormous and the plants themselves can take up a fair bit of space on your plot. If you are limited, grow just one in a large pot and it should produce a good number of courgettes. They thrive in hot summers in full sun and should be sown from April until June and harvested from the middle of summer until the first frosts. Courgettes need fertile, moist soil, so it’s beneficial to add plenty of organic matter to the soil before you start. Seeds should be sown individually in small pots indoors and then hardened off and planted out after the last frosts, when they have two or three leaves. Leave it later to sow outdoors and sow two seeds per station, thinning out to one seedling when possible. Never let them dry out and feed them regularly with a liquid fertiliser when the fruit starts to form. Courgettes are best when picked young and thin. Slice them off using a kitchen knife rather than tugging at them. Good varieties include ‘Venus’, a compact plant producing bumper crops of dark green courgettes, and ‘Black Forest’, a climbing cultivar good for training over trellis. For a brighter-looking variety, try the yellow ‘Gold Rush’.


WHAT TO DO THIS MONTH • Clean around globe artichokes, lightly fork the ground and topdress with compost prior to soaking. This will encourage suckers to grow, which can then be detached and potted in autumn. • Take cuttings from the unflowered shoots of penstemons. • Lift globe beetroot when they are about the size of tennis balls. Twist off the leaves before cleaning and storing in moist sand. • Clear out old, rotten water lily leaves from the pond, along with blanket weed. • Plant daffodils between late August and late September. • Trim pyracantha. • Prune redcurrant and blackcurrant bushes. • Take cuttings of alpines. • Continue to harvest green beans, courgettes, marrows, tomatoes and lettuce. • Border carnations and pinks which were layered during July should be rooted and can be severed from the parent plant and planted into a prepared bed, unless you live in a cold area, where they are best overwintered in a frame. • Tie tall flower stems of dahlias to prevent wind damage and continue to cut blooms for the house. • Continue watering outdoor crops including tomatoes to encourage more fruits. 37


DIY EXPERT

THIS WEEK:

Get those jobs done with a little help from ‘Big Al’ our DIY expert. This week: Clean out those gutters for the Winter

LEAF IT OUT Guttering is designed to protect your home’s exterior walls from rain by channelling it from the roof to a drain in the ground via the gutter and downpipes. If they become damaged or blocked, it may put your home at risk of water penetration and damp. The type of gutter depends on the roof. Sloping roofs have an eaves gutter, flat roofs have a parapet gutter, and a number of sloping roofs meeting at one point have a valley gutter, which links up with either an eaves or parapet gutter. There are also different shapes of gutter. Standard ones are semi-circular and run into circular downpipes, square ones are bigger and so ideal for large properties and places prone to rain, and ogee ones have straight back edges and fluted front edges and can be used with both square and circular downpipes. Most gutters and downpipes are plastic these days, which are cheaper, lighter and easier to work with than metal ones, but many period properties still have the original metal ones. Over time, these can rust, causing damp, and in severe cases, the metal can disintegrate. While plastic guttering is usually a better option, if you live in a listed building and it has metal guttering, you’ll probably have to replace it like for like - consult your local council’s conservation office first. Occasionally, planning permission is required to repair or maintain drainpipes - see the interactive house at www.planningportal.gov.uk for more information.

To stop gutters getting blocked, simply fit gutter guards (try the 4m Gutter Leaf Guard, £8.79, Wickes). These are grates that block debris but still allow rainwater to get through. Alternatively, try the Hedgehog (4m brush, £14,99, see www. hedgehoggutterbrush.com), which is a long, hedgehog-like brush that sits in the gutter and keeps out leaves and the like because they bounce off or get stuck on the ‘spines’. If you don’t have something like this fitted, you should make regular checks for blockages, especially when the leaves are falling from the trees. Leaves are one of the main culprits when it comes to blocked gutters, but you can find all kinds of things in them, including plants happily growing away. If you notice that water is falling sharply from one place, this is probably where the blockage is. Simply scoop it out with your fingers or a trowel, taking full safety precautions when using a ladder. If you have plastic guttering and it’s leaking, the cause is likely to be one of the seals (synthetic rubber gaskets). To fix this, squeeze out the seal from between the two sections of guttering, clean off the area and replace the seal, before clipping the sections back in place. A leaking joint can usually be sorted with sealant. To do this, clean the joint with a wire brush and then use a screwdriver to remove the old jointing material. Finally, squeeze roof and gutter sealant all around the pipe to fill the cavity, smooth it off and remove any excess. This simple measure should solve the problem and extend the life of the guttering.

HOW-TO TIP Got a powdery internal wall (or ceiling) and don’t know what to do about it? Scrape or sand and clean the wall, then use Polycell 3 In 1 Problem Wall Primer (£27.49 for 2.5ltr, Homebase), which stabilises powdery and flaky walls (and seals porous walls and bare plaster) so they’re ready to paint. You just apply it with a roller in the normal way, and one coat should do the trick. Prepare external walls in the same way, but use a stabilising solution/primer instead both Sandtex and Dulux Decorator Centres do good ones - before painting.

PRODUCT OF THE WEEK RONSEAL NO RUST PAINT FROM £5.09 www.amazon.co.uk If you want a really quick and easy way to smarten up and protect exterior metal, Ronseal No Rust Metal Paint is all you need. It comes in five colours, but for a classic look, nothing beats Smooth Black Not only does it give bare and previously painted metal six years of protection against rust, it can also be applied straight to rust, so it’s a real time-saver. It’s drip resistant on vertical surfaces, which is a big bonus, and you don’t have to use a primer (unless you’re painting non-ferrous and galvanised metal) and undercoat, saving you even more time. The finish is really good and it’s touch dry in just an hour, perfect for showery days.

GORDON RAMSEY NO MORE KITCHEN NIGHTMARES

Gordon Ramsay's Ultimate Cookery Course on Channel 4 aims to strip away the complexity of cooking and boost everybody's confidence in the kitchen. We select three simple but mouth-watering recipes from the TV favourite. We've seen him overhauling failing restaurants, teaching prisoners how to bake and ranting at celebrities over their poor performance in the kitchen. But Gordon Ramsay's latest TV and book venture sees him go back to basics - plain and simple cooking. In his Ultimate Cookery Course, the Michelin-starred chef aims to strip away the complexity of fancy restaurant cookery and show his fans how to prepare

straight-forward, tasty dishes at home. He shares a wealth of tips and tricks from his years as a professional chef - such as what to look for when buying a pan and how to chop an onion - to give home cooks that all-important confidence in the kitchen.

"I really think that's what separates good cooks from the mediocre ones,"

writes Ramsay, who has confidence in spades. "Sure, you need to be able to master a few basics, but being able to act boldly and decisively, to have the confidence to ramp up the seasoning, for example, or to turn the gas up high and use the heat to your advantage - that's the real secret." And to all those who say they simply can't cook, the restaurateur reckons they're just not interested enough in trying.

"In truth, there's no one with a genuine interest in learning who can't improve and, with enough practice, become a decent cook." Got it? Good. Now try three of Ramsay's dishes at home and see how you fare...

Recipe

SERVES 4

SPICY SAUSAGE RICE TIP: HOW TO FRY ONIONS

INGREDIENTS Olive oil, for frying

½ Glass white wine

1 Red onion, peeled and sliced

500ml Chicken stock

1 Red pepper, chopped

4 Spring onions, trimmed & chopped

2 Garlic cloves, peeled & sliced

1 Tomato, chopped

5 Spiced sausages, e.g. Italian chilli

Flat leaf parsley, roughly chopped

1 Heaped tsp smoked paprika

Sea salt & ground black pepper

If frying onion, don’t slice it too thinly or it will burn before it has had a chance to caramelise. Never rush cooking an onion. Always give it 5 or 6 minutes in the pan on its own.

200g Long-grain rice

METHOD Add a glug of oil to a heavy-based casserole dish and fry the onion for 5 minutes until soft but not coloured. Add the pepper and garlic and cook for 2 minutes. Slit the sausage skins and crumble the sausage meat into the pan, then cook over a medium heat for 4-5 minutes until coloured. Add the smoked paprika and mix. Season to taste. Add the rice and stir well to mix thoroughly and absorb the flavour. De glaze the pan by pouring in the white wine and scraping any bits stuck to the bottom. Add the stock and bring to a simmer. Cook gently for 15-20 minutes until the rice is tender and the liquid almost entirely absorbed. Remove from the heat, gently fold in the spring onions, tomato and parsley and serve.

Recipe

SLOW COOKED AUBERGINE INGREDIENTS Olive oil, for frying

2 tbsp pomegranate molasses

2 aubergines, cut into 3cm chunks

1 x 400g tin chopped tomatoes

3 garlic cloves, peeled and chopped 1 loaf of crusty white bread 1 red onion, peeled and diced

Mint leaves roughly chopped

1 x 400g tin butter beans

100g feta cheese, crumbled

METHOD Heat a heavy-based casserole dish over a high heat. Add a glug of oil and fry the aubergine for 3-4 minutes until coloured on all sides. Add the garlic and onion and fry for another 5 minutes until the onion is tender. Stir in the butter beans and pomegranate molasses with a generous pinch of salt and grinding of pepper. Add the tomatoes and sugar. Bring to the boil, then lower the heat and simmer, uncovered, for 40-45 minutes until the aubergine is tender and collapsed and the stew reduced and flavoursome. (If you find the mixture is drying out too much, add a couple of tablespoons of water.) To serve, slice the bread and toast on each side until golden. Stir the mint through the aubergine, spoon onto the slices of toast and scatter over the crumbled feta. Serve warm.

HOW TO SALT AUBERGINES Although it’s not essential to salt aubergine before you fry it, doing so draws out the moisture and makes it absorb less oil. Simply chop or dice the aubergine as required, place in a colander and sprinkle with about one teaspoon of salt. Leave for 30 minutes, then rinse well, pat dry on kitchen paper and cook as you wish. 56

Recipe

PORK CHOPS WITH PEPPER INGREDIENTS

METHOD

2 pork chops, about 200g each

First prepare the peppers. Heat a little olive oil in a large frying pan, then add the onion and peppers. Season with salt and pepper, add the sugar and saute over a high heat for 4-5 minutes until soft and coloured. (Make sure you can hear the vegetables hissing in the pan. If not, the pan isn’t hot enough and you’re in danger of boiling the vegetables instead of frying them.) Add the vinegar and let it bubble for a minute or two until it has reduced and the peppers are soft. Turn down the heat, add the tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil and cook for a further 2-3 minutes. Stir in the shredded basil and continue to cook for 30 seconds, then turn off the heat. Decant into a bowl and set aside to infuse. Wipe the pan clean, ready to cook the pork. Using a sharp knife, make cuts into the fat of the chops, about 5mm deep and at 3-4cm intervals, making sure

Olive oil, for frying 2 garlic cloves, skin on, crushed Small bunch of thyme Butter Olive oil, for frying 1 red onion, peeled and sliced 2 red peppers, deseeded & sliced Sea salt & ground black pepper 1 tbsp caster sugar 3 tbsp red wine vinegar 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil Basil, leaves shredded

you don’t cut into the meat. (This will stop the meat from curling up during cooking and will make it cook more evenly.) Season the chops really well on both sides, pushing the seasoning into the meat. Place the cleaned-out frying pan over a high heat until hot and add a dash of oil. Add the chops, garlic and thyme and fry for 2-3 minutes until coloured. Turn and fry for a further 2-3 minutes on the other side, pushing the thyme under the chops and breaking up the garlic a little. Towards the end of cooking time, add 3 knobs of butter and baste the chops with it as they are cooking, to speed up the cooking process and keep the chops moist. (Push the fatty edge of the chops towards the back of the pan to help render the fat.) Squeeze the garlic out of its skin and place with the herbs on top of the chops.Transfer the chops to a plate, and rest for 5-10

minutes, spooning over the basting butter now and again. Serve the chops on top of the peppers with the resting juices and a little juice from the peppers.

HOW TO SLICE PEPPERS Chop off the green stalk and stand the flat end on your chopping board. Now slice down from the top, almost like peeling an orange, working your way around the pepper, to leave a tree of seeds. Now place the pepper slices down on the worktop, and holding them down with your three middle fingers, cut them into slices. Don’t try to rush: speed will come with practice.

Farmer Palmer’s Farm Park is packed with fun-filled attractions and adorable animals. Most of our animals are traditional farm species such as pigs, ponies, sheep and cows but we also have some less traditional residents like guinea pigs, rabbits and deer! Our animals are taken care of by our dedicated Animal Barn team in line with DEFRA’s Farm Animal Welfare Council’s Five Freedoms.

We have plenty for your little ones to do. From interactive soft play for tiny tots to racing on the pedal go-karts! There is a full timetable of ‘handson’ animal events every half hour plus tractor-trailer rides, woodland walk, straw mountain, pedal tractors and bouncy castles! Add to this fresh air and exercise – we aim to send you children home tired and happy.

ASK THE PROPERTY EXPERT

Q A

I read in one of the national newspapers that there is going to be an easing of planning restrictions on extensions, conservatories and loft conversions. Can I take advantage of this? The legislation is designed to remove the red tape for families who cannot afford to move to a bigger house or get a mortgage for one. The changes will increase the maximum size for building projects that do not require planning permission. Extensions of up to two storeys that extend no more than 10ft from the back of a property come within the legislation. Loft conversions will also be allowed without planning, as long as they extend no more than 8in from the eaves of a property and are no more than 50 cubic metres in size – this roughly equates to a room 18ft by 12ft. Extensions of more than 3 metres from the original property or loft conversions of more than 50 cubic metres will still require planning permission. Household applications, however, are notoriously tricky and concerns regarding privacy, overlooking and a loss of amenity cannot be ignored. Our advice would always be the same – we are more than happy to supply the glazing work for your extension or loft conversion or build your conservatory, but we would always recommend that you obtain best advice from the local council or a qualified planner before the build starts. Based in the Bournemouth and Poole area, Richmond Home Improvement Co is Dorset’s leading PVC-u / UPVC and aluminium, replacement double glazing window and door installers and offer Dorset’s widest choice of fascia, soffit and guttering systems.

Income Tax on Rental Letting property in the UK is treated as a business transaction under the eyes of the tax office, even you have only one property that you currently let. How you are taxed on the income is dependant on what terms the property is let on. For the majority of our landlords, the exception being the odd few, their tenants are on Assured Shorthold Tenancies for a minimum of 6 months. Whether you let one or several properties you will be taxed on the overall net profit. You can work this out by: • Adding together all your rental income • Adding together all you allowable expenses • Taking all the allowable expenses away from the income By working out the net profit as an accumulation between all properties, it mean’s that you can offset a loss from one property against another. The net profit after this point will count as part of the taxable income. Properties that are let to people to live in are always

counted as residential investment lettings, and differ in tax from letting a room or furnished holiday lets. Even if you rent out your home to move away from the area or upsize, the taxable income will still apply, as it would to landlords with portfolios of property. As part of running this ‘business’ you are allowed certain deductibles: • Letting agent’s fees • Legal fees for lets of a year or less, or renewing a lease of 50 years and under • Accountants fees • Insurance for the building and/or contents • Interest on property loans • Maintenance (Not improvements) • Utility bills covered by you as the landlord • Ground rent and service charges • Council tax • Cleaning and Gardening • Phone calls and advertising • You can claim a ‘wear and tear’ allowance. The allowance is 10 per cent of the ‘net rent’

You’ll have to keep records of your property letting business for six years after the tax year they’re for. You need them to back up the figures you put on your tax return. Your records should include details of: • All the rent you receive and the dates when you let out the property • Any income from services provided to tenants • Your business expenses • Rent books, receipts, invoices and bank statements As agents, our managed portfolio allows landlord’s access to pre completed tax return forms detailing the amount of rent collected, the expenditure incurred as the result of using an agent, the total paid out in maintenance and the final income received minus the maintenance.

ASK THE PROPERTY EXPERT

Q A

£595 PCM

This is one of the most common questions I get asked. Nationally rent arrears rose by 55% last year and it is really important for landlords to keep on top of this. I will assume you have been in contact with the tenant in trying to obtain the rent for July and August and still find yourselves in this situation. It is in my experience that once a tenant is two months in arrears, they find it incredibly difficult to catch up and it then often spirals out of control. Because the tenant is now more than eight weeks in arrears you can serve a Section 8 notice informing him he is in breach of his contract. This requires a minimum of 14 days’ notice and has the advantage that you can claim both the property and the rent from the court hearing. If the tenant refuses to leave the property then you can go to court on this before the Tenancy expires. As with completing all court forms it is vital the information given is accurate and filled in, in a certain way. You will also need proof that you have served the Notice on the tenant. I would strongly advise you seeking legal assistance in this by either a Solicitor or reputable agent. You can follow us on our blog through out website www.moveonrentals.com, on twitter and now Facebook. If you would like to receive our free newsletter with up to date advice on the Industry news and legislations then please email us on info@ moveonrentals.com and ask to be added.

My tenant, whose tenancy started in January this year has been persistently late in paying his rent. We have been sympathetic towards his circumstances changing but we now find ourselves in a position where he owes rent for all of July and all of August. He is currently in a tenancy for twelve months and we are really worried that this may continue until the end. Please can you advise us on what we can do to rectify the situation?

Hello

New Season Style Tap into the latest looks for autumn. We round up the coolest trends for the upcoming season. Our spring/ summer wardrobes barely got an airing but, good news for those who calculate cost-per-wear, autumn is already upon us. This is the season that really delivers on value thanks to the British climate. Unlike the shorts and sandals we’ve barely worn, a winter coat and ankle boots are often sported on a daily basis. So wrap up warm with the hottest shapes, colours and prints of the season. Whether you’re a country girl or city sister, there’s a trend to suit every wardrobe. These fresh looks give chilly days and dark nights major appeal.

Gothic Blooms

Style greenhouses have been working overtime for autumn. The print typically associated with summer has been extended to this season with a moodier, darker edge. Avoid pretty pastels and pale backdrops, these winter blooms thrive with a gothic colour palette. Rich reds, pink and purple florals looks dramatic and seductive set against black or blue. Cultivate your wardrobe with feminine silhouettes like dresses, skirts and tops or give your look extra edge with trousers and blazers.

Military Moments Stand to attention, military is having a moment. Do away with London guard-style visions of bright red and brassy buttons, this season’s trend is an army-inspired palette of khaki, brown and black. If camouflage jackets are a step too far, try a sleek winter coat with double breasted button fastenings. Stay muted for daytime and add flashes of metallics for evening to give this utilitarian look added luxe factor.

126

Unlimited Regatta blazer, £129; knitted tee, £59; flared shorts, £39 and Coco belt, £15, Hobbs (0845 313 3130/www.hobbs.co.uk)


Purple Reign Look to the Quality Street favourite for inspiration, purple is the colour of the season. Bold shades of indigo, amethyst and violet ruled the autumn/winter catwalks. Wear top-totoe for an extreme look or pick out one statement piece like a winter coat or dress to pack a purple punch. If the colour feels too bold, turn down the tone with more of an autumnal berry shade or experiment with accessories. A bright purple clutch or shoes will transform a tired LBD for party season.

FASHION FEVER Kelly Brook shines at the GQ Awards in her designer Rachel Gilbert embellished dress. Sparkle for a fraction of the price with Topshop’s sequin stripe shift dress, £75 www.topshop.com

Country Bumpkin Form a countryside alliance with this season’s rural fashion trend. Look to your grandfather’s closet for a steer on the Downton Abbey direction; all heritage tweeds, plaids and checks in an earthy colour palette. There are various ways to work the look, ranging from Horse & Hound equestrian to Town & Country chic. Just add corduroy, chunky knits, an all-weather coat and basset hound to complete the look.

Leather Love Not just for jackets, leather dominates entire wardrobes this season. Dresses, tops, skirts and trousers - nothing has escaped the glossy leather takeover. Classic black will deliver gothic glamour but if you want something softer, try berry shades of plum or burgundy to stand out from the traditionalists. Keep the silhouette clean and powerful - this material takes no prisoners when it comes to excess fuss and accessories.

Baroque Belles Minimalists, take cover. The baroque trend is all about extreme adornment, luxury accessories and lavish details. Think gemencrusted collars, metallic brocades and lavish embroidery that wouldn’t look out of place in The Queen’s wardrobe. Try mixing up fabrics and finishes to keep the look modern but stay within the same colour palette to avoid any costume dramas. If you’re considering accessories, think deliciously decadent, never dainty.

BRINGING THE SPIRIT OF THE FRENCH

LOCAL MAN LAUNCHES APPEAL

French born, Isabelle Coe this month launched the dynamic accountancy and business services company, CoeMotion. Their mission is to transform the mundane image of accountancy into something which can really make a difference to business. Based at Arena Business Centre in Ferndown, the centre provides a vibrant business community to over 140 companies. So how was it that Isabelle formed this vision and turned her ideas into reality? Well let’s start with the flair of the French. Isabelle was born and brought up in the delightful town of Rouen in Normandy, France. After studying and qualifying as an accountant in Caen, Isabelle moved to the UK in the early 1990’s. Here she joined a Chartered Accountancy practice where she perfected UK accounting methods, which are surprisingly different to those in France, as well as her English language skills. CoeMotion founder, Isabelle Coe comments ‘The spirit of adventure, ability to learn

Local man Shaun King, 29 is raising money for Bristol Hospital after they helped save his son’s life Shaun was left devastated after his son, Luca, two, accidentally turned the hot tap on whilst his legs were underneath resulting in 30 per cent burns. Luca spent time at three different hospitals, including Bristol Hospital’s Paediatric Intensive Care unit, at one point, Shaun,was sat down by doctors and prepared for the worst. Now, Shaun is raising money for Above & Beyond Charities, which supports Bristol’s nine main hospitals, by taking on the Bristol Half Marathon on September 30, and he will also be climbing Mount Kilimanjaro in January 2013.

and determination to perfect everything are qualities that are at the forefront of CoeMotion. It is not good enough to just produce some accounting numbers in the background. Accounting can be dynamic, supporting business decisions, planning for the future and facilitating growth.’ Isabelle concludes. Isabelle soon began to explore her passion for business. Over the next 10 years she quickly progressed in several UK companies, including a logistics company and toy distributor as Head of Finance. Her success in the UK did not go unnoticed and Isabelle was head hunted by a large American Corporation, that formed part of the Warren Buffet empire. Here she headed up the integration of a newly acquired French company based in Paris. With invaluable business and accounting knowledge in both the UK and France, it was no surprise that she went on to become Finance and Administration Director, working closely with the US head office in Texas and her

counterparts in Munich. After successfully completing her work in Paris, Isabelle resolved to set up a company through which she could put all her experience, expertise and passion for business. So it is here at the very heart of CoeMotion that Isabelle brings a cumulative and wide knowledge of business that underpins her advice and support. CoeMotion brings the ability to handle any needs a company may have in either France or the UK. Her work across the Channel may consist of setting up and running an office in France, working with French suppliers and customers or providing translation services. There is one question to which you won’t get an answer though – does Isabelle prefer France or UK? Genuinely she loves both! Isabelle is married to Robin (also a senior accountant) and they have three teenage children. To more learn about how CoeMotion can make a difference to your business, call 01202 862744.

Shaun said: I could never repay the hospital staff for everything they did, so I want to give something back. “I’ve been in regular contact with Bristol Hospital ever since, and so I am looking to raise around £15,000-£25,000, which would buy a life support machine, which is what was used on Luca. ‘People say Everything happens for a reason but from the minute you walk into those wards and see the little children, you realise it doesn’t make sense at all. “I am so proud of Luca.” For more information on Shaun’s half marathon, go to: Justgiving. com/s-king1 and for his mountain climb, go to: Justgiving.com/sking2

buying Christmas trees, so New Park is guaranteed to be busy. ‘There is a brass band, carol singers and refreshments already lined up. We now want to get more local producers and craft makers involved to showcase the variety of Christmas food and gifts on offer in the New Forest National Park.’ Gary North, Recreation Manager at the Forestry Commission, said: ‘All of the Forestry Commission’s trees are grown especially for Christmas on plantations in the UK and more trees are planted every year than harvested.

Atlantic rower, Elizabeth Mayon-White was the guest speaker at Talbot Heath School’s annual Speech Day last week. It was an afternoon celebrating the successes and achievements of its students, culminating in an inspirational address to the school by the former pupil, who left in 1994. Liz spoke of the rowing challenge of 2005 who, accompanied by her husband, rowed across the Atlantic in the ‘Row 4 Cancer’ Pairs Class. In her compelling address Liz captivated the audience with video footage of the transAtlantic adventure, enduring hurricane conditions, four boat rolls and persevering despite a serious leg injury.

Earlier in the day Liz also spoke with the pre-prep and junior pupils, and offered advice to the Talbot Heath rowing teams who were recently placed in the School Games County Indoor rowing finals over the summer. The Year 7 team finished 3rd in the county and Year 8 were crowned County Champions. Year 9 were placed second in the county with a fantastic display of teamwork. The girls at Talbot Heath were thrilled to meet an inspirational sportswoman in person and were encouraged by her endeavours and final message: that ‘anyone can achieve; it’s a big undertaking, but with hard work anything is possible.’

CREATE A NEW YOU

WHY DO MOST PEOPLE FAIL TO MAKE CHANGE STICK?

They rely on willpower. This works for awhile, but you’ll soon revert back to what’s comfortable.

THE SOLUTION?

IN 3 STEPS

ARE THERE THINGS ABOUT YOURSELF THAT YOU’D LIKE TO CHANGE? YOUR WEIGHT, YOUR HABITS, AND MAYBE EVEN YOUR OUTLOOK ON LIFE?

We are trained to think that change is hard, that it takes time. But it really doesn’t have to be. I’m here to argue that lasting change happens in an instant. I understand that this goes against mainstream belief. Most people believe that change has to be a struggle. We expect to try and fail numerous times before ultimately giving up or succeeding. Think about this - how many people do you know who struggle with their weight? They want to make a healthy change by getting in shape, but the change never seems to happen. What is it in your life that you want to change? Do you have inches to lose? Do you have preventable diabetes? Do you have a pair of skinny jeans that you want to fit into?

WHAT IS KEEPING YOU FROM MAKING THIS CHANGE IN YOUR LIFE?

According to professional speaker and author, Tony Robbins, it’s the preparation for change that takes times. In the end there’s a single instant when the change occurs.

Week's FREE trial at Fit Body Bootcamp

Come check out Bournemouth Fit Body Boot Camp and see what everyone in town is raving about. So call me now on 07795006843 to activate your FREE one-week trial.

HERE ARE THE 3 STEPS TO INSTANTLY CREATE A LASTING CHANGE AND A NEW YOU. STEP #1: BELIEVE THAT SOMETHING MUST CHANGE.

Do you sort of want to get into shape, or do you absolutely have to lose the weight? Does dropping a few pounds sound good, or is living another day in your current body simply unbearable? In order to make a lasting change you must believe wholeheartedly that things must change.

STEP #2: BELIEVE THAT YOU MUST CHANGE IT.

It is vital that you take full responsibility in making the change rather than assigning responsibility elsewhere. Sure, others may help you, but in the end you are the one who is going to make it happen. You have to want this change enough to make it your personal mission - no one else can do it for you.

Change what you are comfortable with. People are motivated by two things: 1) to avoid pain and 2) to gain pleasure. When you want to change a behavior pattern the key is to associate pain with the behavior that you don’t want and pleasure with the behavior that you do want. You know that you want to lose weight and that to do so you need to quit eating comfort food late at night. You also know that you need to start exercising on a regular basis. Up until this point your brain is trained to associate pleasure with eating comfort food late at night and to associate pain with exercise. It’s time to retrain your brain to feel good about exercise and to feel bad about eating late at night. Think about all of the negative things about being overweight and connect these unpleasant thoughts to your late night snack. Now think about all of the wonderful things about being in shape and connect these pleasant thoughts to exercise. You are capable of making big changes in your life. Start by contacting me for your no obligation fitness consultation.

REMEMBER, CHANGE HAPPENS IN AN INSTANT.

STEP #3: BELIEVE THAT YOU CAN CHANGE IT

Don’t let past failures get you down. The truth is that you are capable of amazing things when you put your mind to it. Believe that you are able to lose weight or to make any other positive change in your life.

ROAD TEST

PEUGEOT 207CC

The latest news on all things motoring By Nick Fletcher

SCHOOL RUN SAFETY TIPS Driver training specialist IAM Drive & Survive is advising drivers to take extra care now the school run has re-started: Don't compromise your concentration and the safety of other road users by being in a hurry. Leaving the house five minutes earlier changes the nature of how you makethe journey. Take extra care to compensate for the fact that children won't always be paying attention, especially when approaching the school gate. Never stop on the yellow "zig zags" by the school gate, and always ensure you let your passengers out on the pavement side. An informal arrangement to share the driving with other parents can reduce driving pressure. Roads surrounding schools are usually 20 mph, it's important to slow down and keep an

eye out for children crossing the road. If your children are walking to school on their own, make sure they are aware of the potential hazards such as crossing busy roads and encourage them to always use the pedestrian crossing if there is one. Head of Training Simon Elstow said: "The school run brings with it a 20 per cent growth in rush hour traffic. A little preparation can go a long way to making the school run easier, so take the extra time and plan ahead."

IF YOUR CHILDREN ARE WALKING TO SCHOOL ON THEIR OWN, MAKE SURE THEY ARE AWARE OF THE POTENTIAL HAZARDS

Small affordable convertibles have long been a Peugeot strong point, and the latest versions with a push-button metal foldaway roof provide all the joys of open-air motoring with the cosy comfort and security of a conventional coupe. There are several convertible Peugeot models and within the line-up, a popular choice is the 207CC, with prices starting from £16,645 for a 1.6 litre petrol version, writes NICK FLETCHER. There are three 1.6-litre engines - two are petrol offering 118 and 154 hp, and a diesel giving 110 hp. The diesel is a shrewd choice given the additional fuel economy it provides and it was this engine that was fitted in my recent 207 CC test model, the flagship Roland Garros version with a lot of extra kit and a price tag of £20,145. In any spec, this nifty Peugeot looks good, with a cool street-image and the promise of a lot of fun. Out and about, it is smooth and agile though in diesel form, is not too quick - the 0-60 mph time of 10.9 seconds is more than that of some family saloons. However, you get the smile back on your face with news that the combined fuel figure is impressive at 57.6 mpg. With the roof up, this 207 turns is quiet and precise, taking even sharp corners crisply. The suspension firm but still provides a comfortable ride. Roof down - it takes just 25 seconds - the 207 CC still drives well with no body flexing and no cabin shake. While entry-level Active models feature all the main equipment requirements, including remote locking, multi-airbags, alloys, power windows radio/CD/MPs player and air-con , mid-range Allure models add other kit including leather trim for the seats and steering wheel, and rear parking sensors. My range-topping Roland Garros model comes with even more, including automatic directional headlamps, cruise control, dual-zone climate control, leather seats, aluminium door sills and other features.

HYUNDAI VELOSTER TURBO BOOST

132

The turbocharged version of the Hyundai Veloster 1+2 door coupe will be available in showrooms from September 24 priced at £21,995. The Veloster Turbo SE is the first vehicle to feature Hyundai’s 1.6-litre T-GDI engine with a high-compression, twin-scroll turbocharger. To best suit European driving tastes and enhance driver enjoyment, power output has been boosted and low end torque increased, the company says. It develops 184 hp and is mated to a standard six-speed manual transmission featuring wider gear ratios.This delivers a top speed of 133 mph and acceleration from 0-60mph in 8.4 seconds. The Veloster Turbo SE offers CO2 emissions of 157g/km with fuel economy of 40.9mpg combined.

Tony Whitehorn, President of Hyundai Motor UK, said: “The Veloster has quickly established itself as a fun car and a unique proposition. Now the the Veloster Turbo SE brings an extra helping of dynamism, excitement and emotional appeal to our refreshed model line-up. Its overall package is genuinely strong against other competitors such as the VW Scirocco 1.4TSI and the Astra GTC 1.6i 16v VVT Turbo”. On the outside the Veloster Turbo SE retains the standard car’s unique 1+2 door layout. The front bumper, radiator grille and front fog lights are new to the Turbo. The rear also benefits from a revised bumper, which includes a new fog lamp design plus round

twin exhausts and diffuser. A longer and wider rear spoiler with integrated LED brake light is included in the visual changes along with a red “Turbo” nameplate on the bottom right of the bootlid. The Veloster Turbo SE offers new 18-inch alloy wheel designs with chrome inserts. Inside, the Veloster Turbo SE has added standard specification. It features re-designed leather seats with grey panels, with the “Turbo” nomenclature embossed on the driver’s and passenger’s seats. The driver’s seat is electrically adjustable with lumbar support. Hyundai’s 7-inch touchscreen satellite navigation system, incorporating media centre and reverse parking camera with parking guidance, comes as standard.


FACE FACTS Owner of Chic Beauty Salon & Chic Academy, Sophie Tamagna talks about the importance of sunscreen and some of the common myths about sun protection.

TAXI!

Hailing a taxi in London has just become glamorous! If you’re lucky enough to flag down one of the 25-strong fleet of cars, there’s only one destination to head for: the Chanel beauty pop-up store in Covent Garden - If you thought London taxis were overpriced modes of transport manned by stressed, impatient drivers think again. Made over in iconic shades of Chanel nail polishes and lipsticks, emblazoned with the brand’s double ‘C’ logo all you have to do is to greet your cabbie with the words “Chanel at Covent Garden” and you’ll be given a voucher for a complimentary makeover or nail shape and paint, followed by a £25 voucher to spend on your favourite Chanel make-up products on the day at the store in the famous cobbled Piazza. The pop-up store opened in late July and features two floors dedicated to the French luxury label’s extensive beauty and fragrance ranges. It has been such a success; it is expected to stay open for at least another four months. Feeling inspired……….I can just see a Chic Hackney Carriage travelling around the streets of Bournemouth!

I RECOMMEND... The SPF number tells you how long you can stay in the sun before getting burned. If you normally start to burn after 15 minutes of sun exposure, an SPF 15 product will let you stay in the sun for approximately 15 times longer (or 3 1/2 hours) without burning. SPF sunscreen numbers indicate sunburn protection from UVB rays only. There is not a rating system for UVA. Skin damage is caused by both UVA and UVB exposure. Sunlight exposes you to two kinds of ultraviolet light, called UVA and UVB. Both can cause skin damage, including wrinkling and skin cancer. • Exposure to UVB rays has an immediate (within 60 seconds) and harmful effect to the skin • You don’t feel or notice UVA exposure but it is the main cause of skin cancer and wrinkles, one of the main reasons why sunscreen is important. To ensure protection from UVA rays your sunscreen should be labelled “Broad Spectrum” and contain at least one of these ingredients: • Avobenzone • Titanium dioxide • Zinc oxide

FACT Most People Don’t Apply Enough Sunscreen A study found that sunscreen users were only applying 50% of the recommended amount, so they were only receiving 50% of the SPF protection.

FICTION

THE IMPORTANCE OF SUNSCREEN September is predicted to be balmy so I am looking at why the importance of sunscreen cannot be overstated! The reason why sunscreen is important is that the number one cause of aging and damage to the skin is sun exposure! Sun protection is the most important skin care product you can use every day. SPF claims are regulated by the FDA. They test and approve every product’s SPF claim before it can be labelled to have an SPF. You may also note that any product that carries an SPF claim will also have a list of “active ingredients” - those are the ingredients that give the product its Sun Protection.

15 + 15 does not equal 30 Layering SPF product’s does not increase the total number or the effectiveness. Sun protection is not just for the summer months! To prevent aging caused by UV rays, sunscreen should be used every day of the yeareven if it is a cloudy day. The only safe tan is a fake tan! Any tan indicates skin damage, the deeper the colour of the tan, the more extensive the skin damage. A tan may give protection from sun burns; it will not protect against wrinkles or skin cancer. Sunscreens vs. Sunblock’s? Although the names are frequently interchanges, there is a difference. They use different chemicals which work in different ways, which is why different terms are used.

South Coast Dental Specialists

Specialists in smile creation

“Your teeth fixed in a day” At South Coast Dental Specialists we are now able to secure fixed teeth onto implants placed into your jawbone all within 3-4 hours from start to finish. Whether you have a few remaining teeth and are struggling with your partial dentures or indeed in you have full dentures and find them difficult, we can help you have fixed teeth in one day. The technique can also be applied to both the upper and lower jaws, and can even be carried out in both jaws in the same day. In addition the procedure is painless and can be carried out under sedation for our more nervous patients, and post operative discomfort is kept to a minimum with simple painkillers. Over the last year or so we have worked closely with the experienced Waters Edge ceramics to develop predictable and accurate techniques which are proving a huge hit with the patients we are providing

BEFORE

this treatment for. After a short period of consultation, we plan your treatment very carefully and give you a written estimate of charges. Assuming all goes well with the consultation and examination process (usually just two short visits ) we then book you in for implant placement and at the same time our technician is on hand to construct your new teeth. The teeth provided on day one we term as provisional teeth, as soft tissue changes and technical constraints prevent us from securing on your final teeth from day one. However, only 2 or 3 short painless visits are required 4 months after your initial “teeth in a day“ appointment, for us to construct your final definitive teeth. Here are some before and after photographs of patients who have had this treatment.
