OASIS CONCEPT The idea of using “Pods”, self-contained modular units, to create extra accommodation or hotel suites has been around for a few years, but a Dorset based company The Oasis Concept Ltd has gone several leaps further and developed a concept for permanent, mortgagable, interior designed “Pods” clustered around a central garden. Oasis One their first development will be tailormade for first time buyers who want stylish living at an affordable price. Each Pod/ apartment will be crammed with the latest technology, including

NATIONAL AWARD FOR 2012 A-rated products and appliances, the latest energy conservation gadgets and a bespoke home entertainment and communication system. Oasis One comes with three electric cars which will be available for the residents to use on a car share basis, all managed by a handy smart phone app. With this clever piece of technology, the future residents of the Oasis Pod Collective will also be able to book time in the private gym or laundry, both of which are powered by electricity generated on-site. The Oasis

Concept developments also feature many other elements of sustainability including increasing native biodiversity and providing an urban ecosystem where endangered species may thrive along with on site recycling. 'Oasis One' is due to be completed in February 2013, and with prices from only £79,995 and many of the pods are offered with a 5% gifted deposit, not only is the purchase cost affordable but the design and features included in our developments reduce overall living costs.

Renowned local family development company, Bracken Developments, are proud to have received a National Winners award from Premier Guarantee Excellence Awards 2012. Escalada, Cliff Drive, Canford Cliffs comprises a beautifully designed and stunningly finished development of twelve 2 and 3 bedroom apartments with an exceptionally high standard of specification and set in a marvellous location within a short walk of Canford Cliffs village, cliff top and beach, located at the head of Canford Cliffs chine. There were over 1500 entries in the medium development category for the whole of the country, with the Escalada development coming out on top in both the regional and national categories. Nigel Still, Director of selling agent Stephen Noble Estate Agents, commented ‘I am not surprised that Escalada has won this coveted award out of such strong competition throughout the country, as the stunning Art Deco design and quality of construction and finish has proved to be most popular

with purchasers. Even in these difficult selling times, we have already sold 5 apartments with strong interest being shown in 2 others. Purchasers have been very impressed by the quality, design and internal specification as well as the location and surrounding amenities. Bracken’s attention to detail and quality of construction has been clearly evident in this scheme’. The apartments are priced from £595,000 up to £685,000. Bracken Developments are also currently building other exciting schemes in the area including 4 houses ‘Starpoint’ in Lakeside Road within a short walk of the sea front in Branksome Park. Prices start from £1.425 million for these magnificent contemporary homes, further details available from Stephen Noble Estate Agents.

TIME TO REVIEW YOUR MORTGAGE BOURNECOAST’S 76 LETS IN A MONTH – AGAIN

6

Austin and Wyatt, part of Countrywide, the UK’s largest mortgage broker and estate agency group, is urging homeowners to review their mortgage after a recent hike in interest rates by some high street lenders. Paul Skelton, Regional Sales Manager at Austin and Wyatt commented: “With the Bank of England Base Rate at an historic low of 0.5% and some lenders increasing their standard variable rates, now is a good time for homeowners and landlords to review their current mortgage deal and see if they could save money by remortgaging to another product.” The increase in the standard variable rate by a number of major UK mortgage lenders may have affected your monthly mortgage payments. By speaking to a qualified mortgage consultant you can

find out what your mortgage options are. Homeowners and landlords currently on a standard variable rate could save money on their monthly repayments. “Some lenders have reduced the cost of longer-term purchase and remortgage fixedrate deals, taking a more optimistic medium term view to the mortgage market. A number of lenders have very competitive remortgage rates and at Austin and Wyatt we often have access to exclusive mortgage products through our panel of lenders, which includes most of the UK’s largest Banks and Building Societies,” says Paul Skelton. To arrange an appointment with a mortgage consultant and find out what your mortgage options are, contact your local Austin and Wyatt branch.

BOURNECOAST Property Agents are delighted to have again secured a record tenancy sign up last month. Last September saw them reach new highs when they exceeded all targets and this year has been even better with them blasting through their target to rent out - and successfully move in - over 76 winter lets. Based in Dorset, it sees the Bournecoast letting team breaking previous records again on this time last year by being up on last year’s figures too. Chellenka Davis, Lettings Manager, said: “We have worked extremely hard as a team and are incredibly proud to have achieved these exceptional figures. This now sees the benefit of Bournecoast's expansion into Westbourne coming to fruition. “It’s a great

achievement for the firm. We have all worked very hard during the past year not only to maintain but to also build upon our previous success” “Word of mouth referrals speak volumes about the award winning customer service we provide and the high caliber of our properties, which are inspected by Bournemouth Tourism and hold the BQS”. Des Simmons, Managing Director of Bournecoast said, “We are very proud of the achievements made by our staff over the past few months and our success is indicative of the high level of service our landlords have come to expect from our company”. He added, “With the rental market continuing to grow we are seeking more quality properties as demand is

out-stripping supply, and now with our office in Westbourne we hope that the Bournecoast brand will not only continue to attract more tenants but also landlords and properties to the West of Bournemouth.” Bournecoast have a first class reputation for providing quality properties for rent, be it short or long term, and are the area’s leading provider of short term lets. Established in 1960, they are proud to have over 50 years experience in the property business. For further details on long or short term lets in Bournemouth or the surrounding areas, please contact Bournecoast on 01202 437888 where one of their advisers will be more than happy to help you, or visit their website www.bournecoast.co.uk.

CELTIC CONCERT IN AID OF MACMILLAN Local music fan Adrian Harman is organising a memorial concert for late wife Rose in a bid to raise much needed funds for Macmillan Caring Locally. The Ferndown based couple were avid organisers and followers of celtic and folk music prior to Rose losing her 6 year battle with Cancer in June 2011. Having received such care from the Macmillan team, Adrian was keen to help fund raise, and what better way than a concert of the music Rose loved to help raise awareness and money for the cause. On Sun 11 November the concert will be held at The Allendale Centre Wimborne, featuring musicians from various bands, playing in different formats, with a 6-piece finale of amazing musically talented individuals brought together for this one occasion.

FUNDRAISERS GET FOREST FIT FOR FOREST HOLME HOSPICE

Holme, said: “We created the ‘Fundraise & Get Forest Fit’ event to offer a unique and inspiring way to fundraise and were delighted with the turn out. “We want to give a big thank you to the staff at Forest Fit Club, who did an amazing job at motivating each of the teams, and to all our fundraisers for showing so much enthusiasm and for continuing to smile throughout the final 15 minutes of exercise! This is a fantastic total and will go a long way to improving the care of our patients here at Forest Holme. “

MYFood generously donated Power Snacks and AECC Chiropractors were on hand to revive participants with mini treatments throughout the challenge. One lucky fundraiser was awarded an Asics running watch, one month’s free membership to Fitness First Poole and three months membership to Forest Fit Club through the prize draw.To find out more about Forest Holme Hospice’s programme of fundraising events go to www.forestholmehospice. org.uk

CASTAWAY SURVIVORS RAISE FUNDS FOR LOCAL CHARITY was generously supported by local businesses, including Powerboat Training UK who provided sea transportation and Sydenhams who kindly donated wood for the shelters, Castaways were taught all there is to know about survival techniques while enjoying group activities and sharing once-in-a-lifetime experiences. Sharon Wells, Events Officer for Diverse Abilities Plus, said: “Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the challenge and had lots of fun. The participants did really well despite a lot of rain during their castaway time, but spirits remained very high and they bonded as a team brilliantly with much laughter along the way.” Participant Sue Robathan, from Melodies in Motion, said: “I survived the Castaway Challenge! One of the main benefits of the five days was the community spirit that was experienced by all participants. Building our shelter, keeping warm and sharing nourishment became the common denominator to link very different people

together to forge strong bonds. I would definitely recommend the Castaway Challenge to anyone.” Participant Tracie Dempster added: “I am absolutely amazed that I made the whole event duration. I feel an enormous sense of achievement. I’ve learnt a lot about myself and in the process have raised a lot of money for charity and raised awareness.” Fellow survivor Andrew Worfe commented: “A truly great experience” while Tony Herbert said: “Fantastic experience! Very wet and sometimes cold but would not have missed it for the world! The expedition staff were very knowledgeable with a great sense of humour; I don’t think I’ve laughed so much before. I won’t say it was comfortable, but what a great time with great people.” If you would like to take part in the next Castaway Challenge, bookings are now being taken for the 21-25 September 2013 event.

MAKEand DOmend... The old mantra of 'make-do-and-mend' is back in fashion. Transform your old bric-abrac and second-hand finds into lovely items for your home. Many of us have corners and attics crammed with old stuff; things we no longer need or use. But before you go saying, 'What a load of rubbish', take a look at what Juliette Goggin and Stacy Sirk have to say in their new book, Junk Genius. It features 80 ideas of ways in which you can turn, well, junk, into delightful new decorative and functional homewares. Not sure what to do with the pile of old scarves you haven't worn for years? How about transforming them into a fancy new lampshade, or stylish cushion cover? As for that pile of old jumpers you need to get rid of... The sleeves could make nifty little mobile phone covers. All you need is a quiet afternoon - hunt out your junk then follow Goggin and Sirk's step-by-step instructions and you might just be amazed by what you end up with. The book features projects suited to beginners about to pick up the scissors and glue for the first time, as well as more advanced tasks for veteran crafters. And don't be worried if you have already thrown out junk you could have used - Goggin and Sirk have the answer: "Junking is about unearthing the unexpected in unlikely places. Somehow this random slow seeking-out is very therapeutic!" Some of the items in the book would make ideal home-made gifts, and being creative will have other benefits too. As the girls say: "Just the fun of being creative and making something one-of-a-kind is hugely enjoyable."

“Junking is about unearthing the unexpected in unlikely places. Somehow this random slow seeking-out is very therapeutic!"

Birdcage lamps Materials needed:

How to make the lamp:

• Vintage birdcage with a solid floor

• Clean your birdcage thoroughly with dishwashing liquid.

• Dishwashing liquid • Electric drill • Light fitting • Electrical cord (flex) • Cord grip

• When completely dry, drill a hole through the bottom in the centre. • Ask an electrician to wire up the cage using a light fitting, electrical cord (flex), and cord grip, for the underside of the cage. • Light fittings are available in ceramic, plastic, or metal. Choose one that will allow you to use a

fairly small light bulb, preferably a filament bulb, which will look more attractive. • Once the light is in place, you can use the cage door to access the switch. Alternatively, have the electrician use a non-switch light fitting and fix a switch to the cord. • A hanging birdcage looks gorgeous at night filled with candles. For the garden, you could plant a birdcage with a vine.

I am not sure why we love old birdcages so much but we do, and our favourite way of using one is to wire it up and make a light. Some cages easily convert to pendant lights, but this small version with feet is perfect as a table lamp. Placing ornaments inside, such as vintage ceramic birds is a lovely touch. Or you could go mad and decorate it with little figurines, as we did!

Winter lanterns Old glass jars and odd tumblers make wonderful winter lanterns when wrapped up in the sleeves of woollen sweaters that you no longer wear but can't bear to throw away. Any small candleholders that fit inside the jar will work, but you can also improvise, using a cut piece of copper piping, for example. If you want to fix the candleholders permanently in the jars, use Superglue or epoxy glue. Otherwise, a very small amount of reusable adhesive, such as Blu Tack will do the trick Making the covers couldn't be easier, and there's no

12

sewing involved! Cut the sleeves off a sweater just below the shoulder, then hold them up to the jars, with the cuff at the top. Cut across the sleeves at the bottom so they are about 1 inch (2.5cm) longer than the jars. Slide them over the top until the cuff is just below the rim, then tuck under any excess sleeve at the bottom. For the most light to shine through the sleeves, use white candles, but as they won't be visible, it doesn't matter what kind of shape they are in. Tealights work best in short jars and tumblers.


Old decorative tins with hinged lids make versatile little wall cupboards, particularly for the kitchen, hallway and bathroom. You can also mount a group of them together for a really effective and good looking storage system.

Metal tin cupboards How to make the cupboard: • Hold the tin against the wall and mark the hanging position. • Mark two holes inside the tin, about 2 inches (5cm) below the top, then drill. • Hold the tin against the wall and place a small spirit level on top to check the tin is level - having the lid loose and your hand inside will make this easier to do. • Open the lid and mark the two holes through the tin on the wall behind. Take the tin down, drill out the holes, and insert a wall anchor (Rawlplug) into each.

• Hold the tin back in place, with the lid open. Put a screw into each hole and tighten into place. If your tin has a small recess on the bottom, which is most often the case, add one or two black rubber washers between the tin and the wall, threaded onto the screw, to achieve the fitting. • Smaller tins, or tins with a portrait format, make an excellent key cupboard. Follow the steps above, but use screw hooks instead of screws. • Best of all are screws with an end cap attached or with a serparate extra cap. These will cover the holes beautifully and give a great finish. 13


Memories on a string All of us have little things tucked away in drawers that bring back special memories when we come across them. This project brings them all together. Tie on jump rings at roughly 2in (5cm) intervals along a length of silk string. As you find your small treasures, attach each one to a ring. If an item has no natural hanger, fix a jump ring to it with Superglue or epoxy glue. Tie in larger jump rings at each end of the string and hang them from small screw hooks in the walls.

BACK TO THE STREETS Pie maker Andy Bates’s American Street Feasts begins on Food Network on Monday, October 8. Street food may be making a splash in the UK, but it’s an even bigger story in the US. We join Bates in San Francisco as he enjoys a road trip around America sampling tasty and inventive street food, and brings home some mouth-watering recipes. Outside the bright orange truck belonging to street food purveyors Curry Up Now, an excitable queue is forming. The punters have heard good things about their Sexy Fries - sweet potato chips topped with paneer tikka masala - and want in on the act. Off The Grid, a weekly gathering of mobile food in San Francisco, has a festival vibe, with a folk band playing, hundreds of young people milling about, and delicious smells wafting from the food trucks and stalls crammed into the car park where the event is taking place today. It’s one of many opportunities to experience the vibrant street food scene in the Californian city, and to see fusion food at its most inventive. One truck has a mac ‘n’ cheese spring roll on the menu, another is offering tacos filled with char sui pork, and the brains behind the Creme Brulee Cart have concocted 30 flavours of the popular dessert. While the vendors appear to be doing a roaring trade, it’s not all 32

about the money. Azalina Eusope, who brings a Californian twist to her Malaysian cooking, turned to street food to get her through a difficult time in her life.

“I had no family members here and the only thing that could comfort me was the food [from home]. It was my lifeline” “In any food business the margin is low, but we do it because we are passionate. Once my children grow up maybe then I can start thinking about opening a restaurant. But this is good at the moment because I can balance my personal and business life.” For TV chef Andy Bates, who is on the “trip of the lifetime” sampling street food across the US, the cuisine in San Francisco could be the best he’s tasted in the whole country, and that’s saying something. “I love how they’re not scared to mix the food

from different countries together, like Mexican and Korean,” he enthuses. “And the food is restaurant quality. I don’t doubt that for a minute. I’ve stopped eating in Michelin-starred restaurants for the last few years anyway because it’s too expensive. “Over here, there’s a culture of eating for an hour and then getting on with your night. It starts off your evening.” His trip, to be shown on his new show on Food Network UK, has seen him sampling everything from the famous Philly Cheesesteak, to a New Orleans jambalaya, to the freshest of sushi sold out of a truck in New Orleans. “All I knew about America was its media, politics and films, so to actually go and meet the people has been great. And the food is unreal. It’s definitely not just fried,” he says. Bates is well placed to comment on street food, as he is juggling his burgeoning TV career with running three pie stalls in London. As the recession has

taken its toll, he has witnessed more and more people with foodie ambitions bite the bullet and set up their own small-scale businesses in outdoor markets and, in turn, more customers are taking to the streets in search of decently priced fare. Bates says:

“There’s so much competition in England now. But I think it’s a great thing as long as it’s good quality food and fairly affordable.” “I think people are starting to wake up to the fact that it’s good quality so you’ve got to pay that bit more, but it’s still not restaurant price. It won’t cost you £15 or £20 for a main course. “And the people are good and the stories are good. The seller has a personality and you get to meet the person who makes the food, which is really important.”


Recipe

SERVES 2

CALZONE PIZZA (Inspired by San Francisco)

TO SERVE

INGREDIENTS 300g strong bread flour

Salt and pepper

1 x 7g sachet instant yeast

250g mozzarella, cubed and dried

1 tsp salt

A handful of fresh basil leaves

200ml warm water

Olive oil for drizzling

3 cloves garlic, crushed

100g Parmesan cheese, grated

200g vine tomatoes chopped

Sea salt & ground black pepper

To serve, cover with the remaining Parmesan cheese and olive oil and a couple of basil leaves

1 tsp caster sugar

METHOD To make the base, mix all the ingredients together and knead for 5 minutes, place in a bowl, cover and leave somewhere warm for an hour. For the tomato sauce, put the onions and garlic in a frying pan and sweat on a low heat until translucent. Add the tomatoes, sugar and seasoning, bring to the boil and simmer for 15 minutes. Blitz until smooth in a food processor and chill. Preheat the oven to 250째C with the baking tray or pizza stone inside the oven. On a board, roll out the dough as thinly as possible, then cover half of the base with sauce, the mozzarella, half of the Parmesan cheese, basil leaves a drizzle of olive oil and cracked black pepper. Fold it in half and crimp around the edges. Transfer to the hot baking tray or pizza stone. Bake for 10 minutes.

Recipe

CRAB BENEDICT ON ENGLISH MUFFIN (Inspired by San Francisco)

SERVES 4

INGREDIENTS 4 English muffins

2 tbsp creme fraiche

2 egg yolks

400g cooked baby spinach

50ml white wine vinegar

400g white crab meat

250g clarified butter

200g brown crab meat

A squeeze of lemon juice

2 tbsp chives, chopped

Salt and pepper

METHOD To make the Hollandaise sauce, whisk the egg yolks and vinegar in a large bowl over a pan of barely simmering water. Whisk the mixture until it has doubled or tripled in size. Take the bowl off the heat and lay on a folded damp cloth, which will stop the bowl moving when whisking. Slowly, in steady streams, add the clarified butter, whisking continuously. When the butter is mixed in and emulsified, add the lemon juice and season, then whisk again and keep warm. Now prepare the crab. In a small saucepan combine the creme fraiche and brown crab. Bring to a simmer then season and add a squeeze of lemon juice. To serve, split and toast the muffins and spread them with brown crab mix. Add a quarter of the spinach and then a quarter of the white crab meat. Pour over the Hollandaise and then finish with another muffin rested on top. Drizzle with some more Hollandaise and sprinkle with chopped chives.

TIP: To clarify butter, heat it over a low heat until melted. Skim off any foam and pour the clarified butter from the pan, taking care to leave behind the milk solids. 33


Recipe

SERVES 6

ANDY’S JAMBALAYA (INSPIRED BY NEW ORLEANS) INGREDIENTS 6 chicken thigh joints, bone in, skin on

50g sun-dried tomatoes

1 tbsp tomato purée

2-3 tbsp olive oil

225g brown basmati rice, washed

1 large onion, peeled and cut

500ml chicken stock

1 red, yellow & green pepper, sliced

Salt and pepper

1 stick of celery, sliced

200g raw tiger prawns

2 tbsp chopped parsley

½ tsp cayenne pepper

2 tbsp chopped tarragon

GARNISH Remove the lid and garnish with spring onions, parsley and tarragon. Serve immediately.

METHOD Preheat oven to 170°C. Season the chicken thighs and seal them off in a casserole dish, making sure the skin is golden brown. Transfer them to a warm plate then seal off the Andouille sausage or chorizo until browned a little, then transfer to the plate with the chicken. Heat the olive oil in the casserole then add the onions, peppers, celery and garlic to the pan and sweat off until softened. Add the spices, sun-dried tomatoes and tomato puree and cook for a further five minutes. Pour over the rice and mix thoroughly, making sure all the rice is coated in oil and juices. Add the stock, season and bring to the boil. Add the chicken and sausage. Cover and bake for 55 minutes. Remove from the oven, add the prawns, cover and return for five minutes. Leave to rest for 10 minutes.

SERVES 2

CEVICHE TACOS (Inspired by Los Angeles) INGREDIENTS 200g mackerel fillets, cut into pieces

½ white cabbage

1 medium red onion, finely diced

1 red onion

DIY EXPERT

THIS WEEK:

Get those jobs done with a little help from ‘Big Al’ our DIY expert. This week: How to turn a shed into useful living space.

SHED LOADS OF ROOM Traditionally somewhere to keep DIY and garden tools, bikes and outdoor furniture (and a refuge for dad), sheds can be used for much more than just storage space. If you’ve outgrown your home and don’t want to move, a garden shed can become a useful living area, as long as it’s easily accessible from the house and (preferably) has water, heat, power and insulation. Because it’s separate from the house, it can be a good place to do quiet or noisy activities, such as playing the drums. You can turn a shed into a drinks bar/ entertaining space, workroom/studio, music or games room, home office or gym, or playroom/den - pretty much whatever you and your family needs. Cuprinol runs an annual Shed of the Year competition (there’s a link to this year’s winner at www. cuprinol.co.uk) and the entrants include some amazing examples

of what sheds can become. Fitting out a shed with everything needed to make it useable and comfortable won’t necessarily be cheap, but it should be cheaper than moving home. You can convert an existing shed, or buy one tailored to your needs with all mod cons. Specialist companies do bespoke designs, including much more contemporary garden buildings than traditional sheds. For information on planning rules and building regulations for garden buildings, click on the shed on the interactive house at www. planningportal.gov.uk. Garden sheds are usually wooden, but you can get metal ones. These are often easier and quicker to build and tend to be better value for money. However, if your metal shed requires a concrete base to form the floor (wooden sheds need a firm base but come with a floor), as many do, and you’re

getting a builder or garden expert to construct the base, it can be quite expensive, especially for a large shed, so you may end up spending what you saved on the purchase price. One of the best things about metal sheds is that they require very little maintenance, while wooden ones first have to be treated with wood preserver (unless they’re pre-treated) and a garden-wood stain or paint, and then maintained with more coats from time to time to prevent the wood from rotting and warping. Metal sheds are more resistant to fire, rodents and insects than wooden ones, although they can be less able to withstand storms and high winds, are noisy when it’s raining and are hot inside in summer and cold in winter. If you’re worried about corrosion, check out the Yardmaster range at Screwfix - these metal sheds have a 10-year anti-rust guarantee.

While metal sheds certainly have advantages, the look of them isn’t for everyone. To many people, wooden sheds are more aesthetically appealing and because they’re made of a natural material, they blend into the garden better. It’s also easy to enhance them with colour. Gardenwood paints have come a long way since brown ruled supreme, and you can make quite a statement with your colour choice. Stripes, for example, are brilliant for a beach-hut effect, while cream and pastel greens and blues are perfect for a pretty pop of colour that isn’t too jarring. Cuprinol, Ronseal and Sadolin do some lovely garden colours, so check out their ranges. Now’s a good time to paint your shed because it will be weatherproofed ready for winter, so don’t delay!

PRODUCT OF THE WEEK WOODEN DOUBLE DOOR APEX SHED £669 SCREWFIX A big shed gives you lots of scope to create the garden room of your dreams. The walls, roof and base come in large panels, but it will still take you a weekend to put together - and you’ll need someone to help. The three windows contain real glass and open and close like conventional windows, and the shed has big double doors, so it’s already more garden room than bog-standard shed. As long as you’ve got a sizeable garden, this good-looking shed will give you more than enough room for storage or to do something more exciting. It even comes with a 10-year manufacturer’s anti-rot guarantee, giving you peace of mind for years to come.

HOW-TO TIP If you accidentally leave a paintbrush out with paint on it and it dries hard, it seems like your only option is to bin it, but think again. A soak in Hammerite Brush Cleaner & Thinners (£6.98 for 250ml, B&Q) can work wonders, making the bristles as good as new.It’s designed for use with Hammerite paints, but also lifts dirt, grim, salt and loose rust from metal, so it’s a really useful product to have around.

There is not a great seafaring heritage in our family which is hardly surprising as we originally hail from a landlocked Middlesex. This point was ably demonstrated during the WW2 D Day landings as my father elected to ignore the more traditional ’leap in and wade’ technique adopted by his fellow invaders going instead for the ’wait till the barge is empty and take a running jump’ option. This could have been considered as a serious failing in priority assessment but for Dad the comfort of knowing that he was about to march on Berlin with dry footwear just shaded the shot in mid-air scenario. Back in the late fifties our exposure to any permanent accumulation of water centred around a short bus trip to ’Ruislip Lido’ which started life in 1811 as a feeder for the Grand Junction Canal but ended up as an oversized pear shaped stagnant pond populated by some clinically depressed ducks along with a fleet of creaking pedallos all emblazoned with a charming ribbon of glutinous dark green tendrils of slime around their waterlines, rendering implausible any meaningful forward propulsion. This picturesque idyll was the brainchild of noted 19th Century engineer John Rennie and it is easy to imagine him surveying the finished article and deciding he would be better employed concentrating on developing his indigestion remedies. About the only claim to fame this pestilential pond had was as a location for Cliff Richard’s two films ’The Young Ones’ and ’Summer Holiday’ and perhaps more notably ’A Night To Remember’ which chronicled the demise of the ’Titanic’ and also brings us neatly on to my next meaningful water based activity. Upon moving to Poole my brother and I took the questionable decision to purchase a sea going pleasure craft and it fell to me to undertake the ’Sea Trial’. Arriving at the local boatyard I was greeted in the office by a man in a suit and tie who clearly would escort me into the presence of a wizened old Seadog puffing reassuringly on a pipe bowl stuffed with ’Ogdens St Bruno Maritime Flake’. Having kindly given me a beaker of water to take my final course of ’Sea Leg’ tablets he slid out of the door to obviously fetch said Seadog. He reappeared clutching two lifejackets, donning one himself and passing me the other, so there I was about to set forth on the high seas with an articled clerk at the helm. The blackboard at the yard entrance had announced a Beaufort scale registering at 5, so having already consulted my ’Shipwrecked for Beginners’ handbook the ’moderate waves, 4-8ft longer foam, many whitecaps and some spray’ did not come as a complete surprise. Having chugged uneventfully over to ’The Sandbanks Yachtclub’ we had just commenced the homeward leg when our vessel suddenly lost forward momentum. Not unduly perturbed I looked to my articled clerk for reassurance, it was not forthcoming, and it soon became apparent that our propeller had fouled on a mooring chain. Managing to keep his composure, although worryingly his tie was no longer straight, he explained that the reason the waves were now breaking over the back of the craft was to do with the juxtaposition of the wind against tide. As the seawater began to envelope my recently purchased deck shoes I noticed through the flurry of airborne sea foam that Jonah was now on all fours fiddling with something on the floor, at first assuming that he had dropped his Rosary Beads you can imagine my surprise when a whooshing sound announced the launch of our distress flare. Now I hate those moments in the elevator when you are never quite sure about striking up a conversation with a fellow occupant who at any moment may alight at the next level leaving you mid oratory. I had no knowledge of average waiting times for sea rescue and was actually more preoccupied wondering if my sea sickness medication would cover me for a helicopter winch ride, anyway Jonah seemed to sense my unease and remained silent. Thankfully the real boatyard staff had finished their lunch and they effected our rescue with the minimum of fuss, although I did feel that the smirks on their faces were not really that helpful. As a footnote, and in what I considered to be a generous gesture towards Jonah keeping his job, we did purchase the boat. More of that in a future issue. I will however leave you with one observation, never undertake a sea trial over a lunch period. 54

Until next time!

HOW TO DECKING hard-to-use and even dangerous (if you have small children) space. When deciding on the location, you also need to think about things such as drainage (manhole covers will still need to be accessed), where the doors to the garden are (you may want to fit new ones), where the bedrooms are (especially with a bungalow or flat) and if the patio or deck will be overlooked (one spot may be better than another). Also consider the prevailing winds, traffic noise, if any, and what you'll be looking out on when you sit and relax. It's important to have a deck or patio that's in proportion to the size of the house and to use colours and materials that work well with the building's style, unless you want a deliberate contrast. While it should be in keeping, your design can also be creative. Decking can be built on different levels, with, among other things, built-in benches, planters, handrails, steps and cutouts - perfect if you have or dream of having a hot tub.

be in keeping, your design can also be creative

If you want to do a big project in your garden this year, you're running out of time, depending, as always, on the weather. A really good way to add value and make it more useable is to create an eating, relaxing and entertaining area in the form of a patio or deck. Do it now and it'll be ready to use as soon as the weather warms up next spring. Getting the location right is key. Do you want the patio or deck in full or partial sun, or in the shade? Where the sun falls in the garden at different times of the day could make a big difference to how much you'll use your new area. The obvious place to put it is near the house, so it's convenient for alfresco dining, but there might be a better spot elsewhere, or you might want to pave or deck all the garden, especially if it's a courtyard. Decking is a brilliant way to make sloping gardens usable - simply extend the deck out from the house to cover the whole garden and you've solved the problem of an awkward,


You can do a similar thing with paving - an easy way to add interest is to incorporate a circle or other design into your patio using a paving kit.

Once you've got a clearer idea of what you want, draw the garden on graph paper (or your computer there's a garden planner at www.housetohome.co.uk marking on everything relevant.

This will enable you to play around with different ideas and layouts, then you can recreate them in the garden using a builder's square, string and pegs or spray paint, marking out what will go where. Before you start, remember that if your home's listed, you may need listed building consent from your local council to build a deck or patio, and sometimes planning permission is required for other types of home. Click on the decking and patio on the interactive house at: www.planningportal.gov.uk to find out more.

“I had been trying to sell my home for 2 years, and in that time, through another estate agent, the deal fell apart 6 times. I had over 100 viewings and was at my wits end until you came on board. I can’t believe how 2 estate agents can be so different and getting me my asking price within days of taking over was breathtaking. Thanks again chaps”.

Winter Woollies In the aftermath of Wool Week (October 15 to 20), celebrate with some cosy fashion. The obsession kicked off with cream, then it was red. The latest incarnation is navy and white... But whatever the colour and pattern, our love affair with knitwear is here to stay. Chunky knits are everywhere right now - in shops, magazine fashion pages and even on TV screens. As fans of hit series The Killing will know, main character Sarah Lund has become just as famous for her iconic jumper as her detective skills! Despite being a Danish export, Lund's chunky knit has become a national treasure here, and in the wake of

the drama's popularity sales of patterned knitwear soared last winter. With the third and final series airing in November, it would be wise to shop for your very own trademark knit now - and you can mark the start of UK Wool Week on October 15. This season, big knits are getting another injection of cool with The Campaign For Wool's 'Wool School'. Backed by patron the Prince of Wales, fashion, textiles and design students across the country have designed a wool jumper to be sold in top retailers like Marks & Spencer, Hobbs and Topshop as well as online. Join the fashion flock and cosy up in our pick of woolly wonders.

Q A WREN LETTINGS 130

Whether you are a Landlord or a Tenant, we think that our task at Wren is to try and identify problems before they occur and when there is a problem, to deal with it as quickly and effectively as possible. In the first of our Forums or Blogs, we want to address some frequently asked questions of tenants and common problems for our Landlords. If you are a landlord and want to take some independent advice for us to answer in future Blogs, send us an e mail at info@wrenlettings.co.uk . We will answer the most challenging or interesting here in House Magazine or you can follow us on Facebook to keep updated on topical matters affecting property. I want to invest in a buy to let. What type of property should I consider buying? If you can afford a house, no matter how small, this is much better than a flat. Houses are currently in great demand and therefore tend to attract a premium rent. Houses are more popular with families and therefore attract tenants who want a long term let to provide stability. Longer occupancies give fewer voids, less letting fees and reduce the inevitable repairs that are found when a tenant vacates. Flats, on the other hand, particularly 1 bedroom flats are great starter homes for tenants but often they will move on quickly, for many reasons, and this provides void periods and re-lettings costs.

For more answers and professional advice call Wren Lettings on 01202 425000 or e mail Toby or Martin at info@wrenlettings.co.uk today.

Q A winkworth.co.uk

SHARRON CANNING MOVE ON RENTALS

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? 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.

Due for completion March 2013 For more information visit: www.theoasisconcept.co.uk THE OASIS TEAM ANSWER YOUR FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS WHAT SIZE ARE THE HOMES? We know it’s hard to believe at that price, but the Oasis apartment pods are actually the size of an average one bedroom apartment at 327 square feet. There is a separate bedroom, bathroom and lounge, and high ceilings with lots of natural light to make the pods feel spacious.

IS THIS GOING TO MEAN EVEN MORE BUY-TO-LET PROPERTIES IN BOSCOMBE? Absolutely not. A huge part of The Oasis Concept is the ethos of community, which we believe is best achieved by the apartments being owner occupied only. This is why we will not be selling any of the apartments to investors, and there will be no buy-to-let properties in the development at all.

ARE THE APARTMENTS MORTGAGABLE? Yes they are. Not only will most mortgage lenders be happy to provide a mortgage to purchasers (subject to status), but the Oasis Team are also in the process of becoming part of the government’s “New Buy Scheme” which will mean that purchasers who qualify for the scheme could receive a mortgage of up to 95% of the value of the property.

IS THE ELECTRIC CAR SHARING SCHEME JUST A GIMMICK TO ATTRACT PURCHASERS? Not at all. We believe that electric cars are the future, so much so that The Oasis Concept will be meeting all the costs of the electric vehicles for three years and will be working with a car sharing partner to ensure that this scheme is a success. The scheme will be open to the public too.

To furnish or not to furnish? It is a misconception amongst landlords that furnishing a property increases the rental income this is not always the case. With rents increasing many tenants are choosing to stay in properties for longer, therefore the option of having their own items around them will make it feel more like their own home. It is difficult to furnish a property to suit everyone’s tastes so sometimes it might be best to leave it unfurnished. Consideration should be made for transport costs, delivery and assembly of items all of which can be very time consuming. Landlords want to maximise their income whilst at the same time minimising the time and effort involved in doing so. It is easy to furnish a one bedroom flat for around £600, however if you are trying to kit out an expensive luxury house you could be looking in excess of £10,000. You then have to consider the wear and tear and whether it will be looked after the way you would want it to be? Unfortunately, some tenants do not care for landlord provided furniture as well as they would their own.

Families, on the whole, prefer unfurnished accommodation as the property needs to allow for children’s items and beds, potentially cots, bunk or twin beds. Furnished accommodation is however particularly attractive to short stay tenants, students or professional workers. For example relocation agents are keen on fully furnished accommodation that allows employees to move in immediately with no hassle. What furniture would we advise? Generally, we would advise our landlords to furnish the property with white goods as it is often a minimum requirement of all applicants for a property to have: •A washing machine •A fridge •A freezer •An oven and hob

Assessing the risk If you are leaving furniture in a property it is essential that a detailed inventory is carried out, listing and photographing all that has been left. This is so that if a tenant removes any items, the landlord must prove they were there in the first place. It is also a misconception that an inventory only covers furniture, they also comment on the state and condition of the fixtures and fittings as well. Your tenant will be responsible for replacing items of furniture if they break or damage them through neglect. But if you leave electrical items, such as TV’s, you will be responsible for replacing them if they break, which could prove costly so it is often best to not leave items of great value or sentimental worth. Items that cannot be replaced should not be left in the property.

If you are letting a student property, the tenants will require basic furnishings including beds, wardrobes, drawers, desk and chair’s in each bedroom, sofa’s, white goods, and a dining table. Select furniture that is easily replaceable.

BOURNEMOUTH’S CHILDCARE & CHILDREN’S CENTRE WORKERS OF THE YEAR 2012 We are delighted to announce the Bournemouth Childcare and Children’s Centre Workers of the Year who were presented with their titles at the Early Years Sector Awards earlier this month. Over 300 local parents and carers nominated their childcare and children centre workers for these prestigious awards.

THE CHILDMINDER OF THE YEAR SPONSORED BY BH LIVE IS LYNDA MORRIS “She has helped me raise my son when I was a single parent to become the amazing teen he is now (and still helps with him). She looks after my 18 month old as if he was her own. Whilst her husband was seriously ill she never once let the children she looks after see how sad she was. She deserves to be recognised so much for all she is and all she has done for so many children, she is an amazing lady and 100 words is never enough to give her justice. I know many parents who feel exactly as I do and would so love to see her get this award!”. 142

THE CHILDREN’S CENTRE WORKER OF THE YEAR SPONSORED BY MARKETING MATTERS IS JODIE WILMOT FROM KINSON AND WEST HOWE CHILDREN’S CENTRE “She takes care of the children with love. My son was 14 months when he joined in crèche. Before only me and my husband had cared for him. At the beginning when we joined the crèche, he was only crying. I started an English language course (ESOL) and had to leave him in crèche. Every break time I looked in on him without him knowing. From only crying till falling asleep only in her cuddle. Then playing and learning to talk with her. Now my son can talk more. He always says her name. Sing a song with her name. He loves her because she loves children.”

DAY NURSERY WORKER OF THE YEAR SPONSORED BY JML EVENTS MANAGEMENT IS REBECCA JONES FROM LITTLE PINES DAY NURSERY “Before I became a parent, I always viewed these titles as predetermined by the Council and did not really worth anything - how wrong I was! It gives us the opportunity as a normal working family to sing the praises of MY nursery - for each and every one of the fantastic staff...but one in particular. Her genuine warmth, professionalism and fun nature allows my child to learn, develop and be happy in their skin whenever they are in her care – an assurance every parent wants but doesn’t always get! Words can’t say enough!”

THE PLAYWORKER OF THE YEAR SPONSORED BY SALAD CREATIVE IS TRICIA TUCK FROM KINSON KIDS “She makes me feel happy when I am around her. Anyone is lonely or has nobody to play with she will come and play with you no matter what. She is the type of person that if you cut yourself, she would give you a plaster.

THE PRE-SCHOOL WORKER OF THE YEAR SPONSORED BY THE PRE-SCHOOL LEARNING ALLIANCE “She is the most dedicated, caring woman who treats the children in her care as the precious, unique beings they are. Her passion for her work and the role she plays in our children’s preschool years are second to none. This is evident in many ways as she nurtures and prepares the children for primary school. Despite the fact she will be celebrating a special birthday this year, her energy and enthusiasm is infectious... She is a household name throughout the community and is loved by all who meet her and truly deserves this award.” Judged by the Pre-school Learning Alliance BARBARA-A N MILLS NE

THE SPECIAL EDUCATION NEEDS WORKER OF THE YEAR SPONSORED BY BH LIVE IS CLARE PHELPS FROM EXTON ROAD PRE-SCHOOL “She redefines the meaning of a professional childcarer. For our daughter who has kabuki syndrome, mainstream nursery was something we thought she would never experience. Due to her tireless support she now feels secure in her environment. She has taken time to learn how best to help our daughter take part in physical activity and achieve key goals such as taking first steps with the aid of splints and walking frame. She demonstrates an unflinching willingness to go the extra mile with personal study to understand sensory issues associated with kabuki and she is an active fundraiser for kabuki syndrome.”

ROAD TEST

MITSUBISHI OUTLANDER

The latest news on all things motoring By Nick Fletcher

NIGHTMARE ON WHEELS New research from AA Car Data Check service reveals that many used car buyers are likely to believe they could trust the person they were buying a used car from. Even if they suspected something was not right with a vehicle, 1 in 8 buyers would take the seller’s word on its condition. The AA is warning used car buyers that signs such as mismatching paintwork, or misaligned panels could point to a very dangerous type of used vehicle – a cut ‘n’ shut. The AA reminds buyers that a vehicle history check can offer buyers vital protection against the risk of buying a dodgy vehicle hiding beneath shiny paintwork and a low price. “It’s clear from our survey that consumers can be a very trusting bunch, but this leaves

them open to unscrupulous sellers out to make a quick profit,” says Amanda Moore of the AA. “A car with mismatched paintwork might simply have had a re-spray for cosmetic reasons, but it could have been an insurance write-off, or even worse – a cut ‘n’ shut. "A cut ‘n’ shut is two crashed or written-off vehicles of the same make and model which have been welded or stitched together to form what appears to be a complete car. These are then sold on at a bargain price to unsuspecting car buyers. “Cut ‘n’ shut vehicles are fundamentally dangerous because the integrity of the car’s structure has been altered, significantly weakening its ability to withstand any impact in an accident. Buyers need to make sure they take a closer look before purchasing a vehicle."

NEW KIA SORENTO UNVEILED Kia’s Sorento SUV has been comprehensively revised. All models now have permanent allwheel drive system and are powered by a revised version of Kia’s 2.2-litre CRDi turbodiesel engine. Prices start at £26,495. There is an all-new platform and a more rigid bodyshell with additional front, side and rear structures to disperse impact energy. Torsional stiffness has been increased by 18 per cent compared with the previous model, thanks to the use of 25 per cent ultra-high-strength steels in the body construction. This should ensure New Sorento maintains the five-star Euro-NCAP safety rating awarded to the previous version. The length and width of the car are unchanged but New Sorento is 10 mm lower than the outgoing model.Sharper driving dynamics are also down to the major changes introduced to the suspension, steering and brakes. The Kia Flex-Steer system, which allows the driver to choose between Normal, Sport and Comfort levels of assistance according to where and how the car is being driven, is fitted to the range-topping ‘KX-3’ model. The 2.2-litre CRDi turbodiesel 194 hp engine drives all four wheels via a six-speed manual

146

gearbox or the company’s’ six-speed automatic. A new exhaust-gas recirculation system has helped New Sorento achieve class-leading fuel economy and CO2 emissions of 47.9 mpg and 155 g/km (manual) – improvements of 5.7 mpg and 22 g/km over the outgoing model. It accelerates from 0-60 mph in 9.4 seconds (manual) or 9.5 seconds (auto), and all versions have a top speed of 118 mph. All occupants benefit from more luxurious surroundings, with notable improvements in the soft-touch materials used to trim the cabin and higher levels of equipment for all four trim grades – ‘KX-1’, ‘KX-2’, ‘KX-2 Sat-Nav’ and ‘KX-3’. New Sorento also has Electronic Stability Control featuring Downhill Brake Control. Vehicle Stability Management connects to the ESC and steering system to automatically correct any tendency to under steer or over steer by braking individual wheels, reducing engine torque or both. DBC maintains a steady speed of 5mph on steep descents. There is also Hill-start Assist Control to prevent wheel-spin or roll-back when setting off on steep or slippery upslopes. Like all Kia models, the new Sorento has a seven-year or 100,000-mile warranty.

The four-wheel-drive sector is very crowded so some excellent models can easily be overlooked, and a case in point is the Mitsubishi Outlander, a combination of people-carrier and off-roader which looks smart and is impressive drive. The entry level versions start at around £23,000 and are well-kitted for the money, writes NICK FLETCHER. The Outlander is available in GX2, GX3 and GX4 trim. The GX2 specification features climate control, front electric windows, alarm, radio/CD player and hill start assist. GX3 versions have bigger wheels, and other equipment including Bluetooth, roof rails and front fog lights. GX4 variants have integrated SatNav, reversing camera, leather upholstery, 18-inch alloys, multi-airbags, cruise control, heated front seats and electric sunroof among an extensive kit-list. All models use a 2.2 litre diesel engine, available with various outputs, and a 6-speed manual gearbox or an auto transmission option. And it was the auto box that was on my recent test model, a top-range GX4 priced at £31,000. The revised exterior gives the Outlander distinctive visual presence and it looks attractive from all angles. Inside, the cabin design is rather dull but entirely practical and functional. The driving position is good, so too the visibility and I found this car very comfortable to be in, even after a 220 mile non-stop drive. Most Outlander models have seven-seat capability, with third-row flip-up rear seats really only able top accommodate young children. Luggage space is excellent, ranging from 220 litres when the seats are in use to a van-like 1690 litres with all seats folded. The engine in the test version offers 154 hp, a top speed of 123 mph and a 0-60 mph time of 11.1 seconds. The combined fuel figure is 40 mpg, not bad for an auto version, though it is worth noting that models with a manual gearbox push that up by around 5 mpg. Underway, the Outlander is smooth, though with a tad more engine noise than some rivals. The auto box on the test model can be over-ridden with paddles behind the steering wheel and both systems operate effectively. Ride quality was very good and the handling was assured and more car-like than some rivals, with less cornering pitch. Summing up, the Outlander is an appealing good-value proposition in a sector which includes formidable opposition from the likes of the Nissan X-Trail and Honda CRV. It is a very capable off-roader, but is also a usable family car and it exudes practicality and versatility.

FACE FACTS

Owner of Chic Beauty Salon & Chic Academy, Sophie Tamagna talks about how to ensure our skin survives the demands of Winter.

HOW TO ENSURE YOUR SKIN SURVIVES THE DEMANDS OF WINTER

As a fitness enthusiast, winter weather brings with it a conundrum. I love to run outdoors daily, especially in the mornings, but the combination of cold and wind dries my face out so much that it often turns red and sore. Not to mention the drying effect of central heating! Protecting our faces isn’t only about “looking good”. Not only does it help our skin to perform its crucial barrier functions well - protecting against water loss and preventing penetration of infectious agents and allergens -but it can be crucial to our overall sense of wellbeing. But as a skin care specialist I know there is more to it than slapping on Factor 50 in summer and a bit of moisturiser in winter. For one thing, good skincare is seasonal. And wintry weather can be harsh to all types of skin, not only very sensitive complexions. So is there a magic formula to maintain a healthy glow throughout the winter so we don’t have to restrict our lifestyles? You might imagine that you can relax once the obviously dehydrating weather of summer is over but the winter season is very drying to skin too. There is less moisture in the air and what natural oil you do have in your skin can be effected by the weather conditions. Once inside, central heating is also very drying. That’s why our skin feels much tighter in cold weather; but if you have sensitive skin, the dryness will lead to flaking and itching; if the barrier level is damaged you are much more likely to develop inflammation and bring on eczema. It’s very important to hydrate the skin with the right type of cream. Most skin creams contain two types of ingredients: firstly, humectants such as glycerine or hyaluronic acid, which draw water into the top layers from the layers of tissue below. This helps give a plumper look. Secondly they contain occlusives, which are an oily layer that aims to block moisture loss. These are fatty things such as beeswax, lecithin, petroleum and paraffin.” The ingredient to look out for is the preservative element. Most creams contain some preserving factor. But in winter this can cause problems particularly to delicate areas such as the fine skin around the eye. Think of when you go skiing, and you apply sunscreen to skin that is red or sore from the wind. Often it stings - this is the preservative irritating the skin. If a cream that you could once tolerate suddenly begins stinging, you may have developed an allergy which could lead to more

WINTER MUST HAVES... DERMALOGICA BARRIER REPAIR

rashes. It is not just what you use but how you use it that can also make a difference to the health of your skin. For those with very dry skin, hydrating it as often as possible is the key to a good skincare regime. It’s not enough simply to use an emollient once a day – you need to apply it frequently to keep skin well hydrated. This could be as often as every half hour, but ask your skin care therapist for advice if you’re at all uncertain. My most crucial piece of advice is that everyone should reassess their skincare routine at this time of year to allow for the season’s drying effect. You might swap your cleansing gel or wash for a cream or oil. Then think about using a gentler toner: one with witch hazel or rose in it; or something with a very gentle fruit acid. Dry, flaky skin can make the complexion look very dull. For this reason, I’d also recommend increasing the number of times you exfoliate the skin depending on your type: dry skin should be exfoliated three times a week, oily/combination skin can be scrubbed twice a week. Then use a creamy healing mask weekly – perhaps one with lavender in it. The important thing is to keep clearing the skin of dead cells, and afterwards, trapping in moisture. You should also consider your day cream; does it have antioxidants in it? Does it contain an SPF? Winter skin needs protecting from ultraviolet rays too, and from pollution. My top tip is simple: don’t rush out of the house with damp skin; dry air is drawn to the moisture and sucks it out. Winter can be particularly hard on specific dermatological problems such as psoriasis or rosacea. Lack of sunshine can make life harder for psoriasis sufferers. Of the 10 per cent of Britons who experience rosacea, most will find it gets worse in winter thanks not so much to the weather as the diet. This condition (where the skin is permanently flushed and red) is often dietary related, and may be triggered by the foods we choose in cold weather, such as hot drinks or spicy meals.

FIVE MINUTES WITH... RICHARD E GRANT

Withnail And I star Richard E Grant has added a new string to his bow as presenter of Richard E Grant’s Hotel Secrets for Sky Atlantic. The show reveals the truth about the luxury travel industry and what goes on in some of the world’s best known hotels. The actor talks 5,000-dollar burgers, David Coulthard’s favourite haunts and his own worst hotel experience What attracted you to hotel secrets? I got to meet, interview and stick my head into places you’d never get the opportunity to in real life. They reckoned that as an actor, I’d travelled and stayed in a lot of hotels, so the combination of being a nosy parker and welltravelled made me the ideal person for this job. Obviously Martin Clunes wasn’t available, so they asked me.

Did you get to stay in the hotels? I stayed in about half of them because we were on such a tight schedule. We were visiting about six to eight a week, but sometimes there was no availability in a place such as Cap d’Antibes on the French Riviera. The hotel was completely full, so I stayed in another hotel nearby, which was pretty gorgeous too.

Which was the most jaw-dropping hotel? There was a suite of rooms in the penthouse of the Caesar’s Palace hotel in Las Vegas that you can’t rent, they are comped by the hotel to people who are the highest gamblers. It has a cyber golfing range where you programme in which golf course you want to go to, so I put in St Andrews. It’s got Jacuzzis with unbelievable views, private security, private elevators, room service, butlers, masseuses, a grand piano, home cinema and could sleep up to 16 people and then there are staff quarters for your pilot too. There’s also a 40,000-dollar-a-night penthouse suite at the Four Seasons hotel in New York; they have a waiting list of people 158

trying to get in. These are people who are so wealthy they’ll take it for three weeks. It’s a creme brulee crust of wealth.

What was the most outrageous service offered? There was a concierge at the Mark Hotel in Manhattan who said a Middle Eastern client had asked for a hamburger which he’d had up the road to be delivered to his friend in Jordan the next day. He put down 5,000 dollars on the concierge’s desk and she said, ‘Yes of course’. So she found out the restaurant, got the chef and the recipe, and emailed it to a hotel in Jordan, made sure it was wrapped in similar paper and delivered. So he had the illusion it had been put on a plane. That sort of initiative is extraordinary. Now whether the man who ordered the burger knew that she’d done that or not is kind of irrelevant, the fact that she’d said yes and delivered meant that she got another 5,000 dollars.

What do you look for in a good hotel? I’ve stayed in so many hotels now, I like feeling that you’re personally valued as a customer and that applies to everything, it could even be a chippie where somebody knows you and look after you. I interviewed David Coulthard in Monarco and he said after a while, when you’ve been around the world as much as he has and have the money he’s earned, the metres of marble and gold taps becomes less important than when he gets to reception and somebody says, ‘Mr Coulthard, it’s wonderful to see you, please come this way’. He says if

he’s standing at reception and has to wait five minutes while someone is blathering away on the phone and he’s jet-lagged, he doesn’t want to go back to that place.

Have you ever worked in a hotel or restaurant? I was a waiter in Covent Garden for six months in 1982. I was never drunk on the job because I don’t drink and that in the waitering world is a bonus. And I didn’t steal anything. I worked in a hotel too in my university holidays to earn money. I worked in the PR department and had to remove dressing gowns that people had stolen and say, ‘I’m terribly sorry, Mrs... but you seem to have accidentally packed two bathrobes, four ashtrays and some pens, I’m just going to have to remove them’. Housekeeping would phone up and say these things have gone missing. What they do in hotels now is they have labels in them and things on the desks that say, ‘If you would like to purchase this robe, it can be added to your bill’ so people don’t scarper with them.

How different is presenting from acting? There’s no script, no costume, you can’t blame anybody else. It’s very enjoyable to be able to ask people questions and fly around. I’ve gone back to my day job now though, I’m doing the Doctor Who Christmas special and a film with Jude Law, so I do have to go back into my costume and make-up and behave. Richard E Grant’s Hotel Secrets starts on Sky Atlantic on Thursday, October 25

BAKED CATFISH AND MINT CABBAGE SALAD Catfish is a wonderful source of low fat protein. Lots of recipes call for frying catfish, but baking turns it into a low calorie, high protein meal. The generous seasoning of the catfish lends to a rich flavor that is complimented perfectly by the light minty salad. Servings: 4 1 teaspoon olive oil 1 bunch of fresh cilantro, washed and stems trimmed 4 catfish fillets curry powder salt sweet paprika 1 lemon, juiced 4 garlic cloves, finely minced Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a glass baking pan, drizzle the olive oil and scatter the cilantro over the bottom of the pan. Generously season both sides of each fillet with curry, salt and sweet paprika. Place the fillets evenly across the bottom of the pan, on top of the cilantro. In a small bowl, combine the lemon juice and finely minced garlic. Pour over the tops of the fillets. Cover the pan with foil. Bake for 30 minutes. Remove foil and bake for an additional 5 minutes. For the Salad: 1 head green, organic cabbage, shredded 1/8 cup crushed, dry mint leaves 1/8 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice 4 garlic cloves, finely minced 1 teaspoon olive oil dash of salt Wash the shredded cabbage and place in a medium sized bowl. Sprinkle with the dried mint, mix well. In a small bowl combine the remaining ingredients. Pour over the cabbage and mix well.
