LOW CARBON ENERGY CENTRE

On a cold crisp Wednesday morning at the end of November Andy King and Sarah Nduva of Low Carbon Energy Centre, Wimborne set off to Kingston Lacey Estate dressed in wellingtons and thick fleece jackets to plant a tree! The event organised by the National Trust and Seeker News encouraged local companies to sponsor an apple tree which will help reinstate an orchard as part of the restoration project of the Kitchen Gardens at the estate. ‘With the companies

focus on renewable energy we felt it was appropriate for us to be involved and planting a tree was one way that we could give something back. We have been involved with works on a few National Trust properties and were keen to support this project.’ The morning’s proceedings included the chance to get involved with making fresh apple juice and provided an opportunity for some local networking. The project has helped recreate something

with a long lasting future. Each tree has been given a name tag so they are easily identifiable to their owners, just in case they want to visit to monitor progress. The organisers predict that their first batch of cider from the trees will be produced in 2014, so it will be a little while before Low Carbon Energy Centre and the 21 other businesses involved get to taste the fruits of their labour.

TALBOT HEATH GIRLS AT THE TOP OF THEIR GAME Talbot Heath School in Bournemouth, have triumphed on the tennis court for the third year in a row at the AEGON Team Tennis Schools Year 8 and 10 National Finals. Held in Bolton this weekend, the Year 8 team retained their title of champions for the third year in succession, whilst the Year 10 team won back their title; having won it two years ago. Both

teams are seeded number one in their age groups and displayed their skill and determination by winning 33 out of the 36 matches played over the weekend. The school is proud to call itself the number one school for tennis in the country, not forgetting their excellent academic record alongside. The two teams included the following girls: in Year 8 were Jodie Burrage, Eliz

Maloney, Millie Smythe, Erin Richardson and Danielle Sebata. Whilst the Year 10 team consisted of Sophia Haine, Ema Lazic, Selina Briggs, Lauryn John-Baptiste and Elle Baker. It is only the second time in the 29 year history of the competition that a school has completed a clean sweep of both the junior and senior events; it was in fact Talbot Heath that first made history with the double win two years ago. The players were initially nervous and faced some tough tests but they were a credit to Talbot Heath and Bournemouth. With the coaching they receive at West Hants and the support at school from their teachers, the girls always try their best and never give up. That is all we ask and is a recipe for continued success!

ALL IS CALM A rental property in Stanley undergoes a sea change, transforming from an under-utilised house into a family home that’s cool and calm

10


Photographer: Edgar Tapan Writer: Tamsin Bradshaw Stylist: Bridget Saunders

When Grace Taylor fell sick, she knew what she wanted: a peaceful home that would be a sanctuary for her to relax in. Taylor and her husband were renting a home in Stanley after selling the home they had owned and loved – they had decided to test the market and the results were swift and surprisingly successful. The rental home they then moved into was on a quiet street, with a tree hugging it on one side. “When I saw this house, I said, ‘this is it’,” says Taylor. Later on, however, when she had to spend a lot of time at home recuperating, she found herself face to face with all the things she didn’t like about the place. Says Taylor, “I realised, ‘I don’t like the way the place looks. I don’t feel comfortable, and I really need to feel comfortable,” says Taylor. It was at this point that she contacted Nathalie Edwards of Life Styling Ltd. Edwards worked with the Taylors on redecorating the home, seeing what needed to change and what could simply be moved around. “Some of the pieces were there already, they just needed to find their home,” explains Edwards. The designer also brought in other elements – curtains, carpets, furnishings, tailor-made pieces – to lift the space and transform it into the haven the Taylors sought for their family. The main living room was one of the areas to undergo major change. This space is vast – it’s double the size of a standard living room, as well as double the height. “Previously it was very formal upstairs,” says Edwards. “They had made one room of it, and it was too big to handle.” So Edwards and her team set about dividing up the space into two living zones. One is larger than the other, with a giant L-shaped sofa that can serve as both a point to entertain from and a place in which to unwind in front of the TV, which is housed to one side of the room in a custom-built cabinet with a taupe-hued sliding door. This zone is decked out in white, grey, taupe and silvery hues. The other area, meanwhile, consists of two loveseats in rich, cocoa-charcoal. The wooden coffee table and flecks of gold in the painting above, combined with the fireplace (which is not in use – Edwards placed candles here instead), give this space a warm, cosy feel, setting it apart from its silvered neighbour.

“We wanted metallic to come in, but in very subtle ways”, says Edwards, pointing to the painting, the silk cushions on the sofa and the metallic mesh curtains. “You can have gold and if you do it subtly enough you can still have silver,” she adds. In distinct contrast to this room is the family room downstairs, which is dressed in cheery shades. The space serves as a gym, a study and a play area for the Taylors’ two boys. It was formerly regarded as the “dungeon” by the kids – “they didn’t want to go down there. They didn’t use it,” laments Taylor. To combat this problem, she and Edwards decided to create a fun space the children would enjoy spending time in. They used colour – orange – and pattern – Missoni fabric – on the OVO armchairs and a Paul Smith rug – to liven things up. They repainted the brown bookshelves white. The outcome of these changes is a fresh space the family loves. Bright, friendly shades also gave the boys’ rooms an easy, fun feel. “I wanted them to have happy rooms,” says Taylor, who used blue and orange stripes here. The adult spaces, meanwhile, are decorated in hues that are in keeping with the relaxed feel Taylor sought. Taylor painted the wall in the stairwell a lovely sage green. This allows the family’s impressive artworks to stand out. “My husband buys all our art,” says the lady of the house. “We move it around, just to enjoy it.” In the master bedroom, the colours are also soft and gentle. A delicate shade of stone adorns the walls, while a rug in taupes and beiges sits at the foot of the bed. “I find the bedroom very tranquil,” muses Taylor. Both the bedroom and the home as a whole evoke the pleasant sensation of being under water. In part, it’s the green shade cast by the tree outside. But it’s also the refined tones Edwards and Taylor chose, and the soothing sensation that pervades the house – it’s as if the harshness of the world is a million miles above the surface, city sounds muffled by the sea gently rolling above you. Taylor – who has recovered – seems utterly at peace here. “It’s an oasis,” she smiles. “It’s light and it’s bright; it really is just a happy place for us.”

WINKWORTH MARKET ANAYLSIS 2012

The opening months of 2012 presented us with a mixed picture for the local residential property market however showed some encouraging signs. As anticipated, the March Budget focussed on the higher end of the market and it soon became clear that the significant changes implemented by George Osbourne would be felt nearer the top of the property ladder and this sector of the market has undoubtedly been affected, particularly the £2m+ properties. The widespread concern was what impact the re-instatement of stamp duty would have on first-time-buyers who were already struggling to find the necessary financing to get a foot on the ladder. However, we were encouraged by the levels of activity with a 17% year-on-year increase in new buyer registrations over the first nine months of 2012 and a 23% increase in sale instructions. Over the same period, completed

transactions rose by almost a quarter. We believe that this activity has been driven by an improvement in mortgage availability for applicants with a 20%+ deposit, sellers being tempted to test the market after reports of slight price increases in the second quarter of the year, increasing demand from London buyers moving to the coast and a general rise in buyer and seller confidence after what has been an extremely tough five years for everyone. Overall, activity across our Winkworth offices has been healthy and an increasing number of both sellers and buyers seem confident in taking steps towards entering the market. We have been delighted with the growth that we have seen in our branches and we are excited about strengthening our position throughout next year. There will undoubtedly be challenges throughout the course of 2013, namely the effects of the UK’s potentially weaker than expected economic performance, however, we remain optimistic that the momentum in the property market will continue to grow throughout the first quarter of 2013 with an increase in available properties resulting in a wider choice for buyers. Should you be considering buying or selling throughout 2013, please contact one of our Winkworth branches to discuss your requirements on the numbers below or contact Ben Jesty on 01202 767633 or bjesty@winkworth.co.uk

LANDLORDS & TENANTS: IS YOUR MONEY SAFE? Over recent years, the private rental sector has grown rapidly and as a result, many new Lettings Agencies have entered the market-place in an attempt to take advantage of this growing business. The private rental sector is currently unregulated and is therefore left open to abuse by small, financially unstable firms holding large sums of money. Although there are many schemes in place to regulate Lettings Agencies, none of them are compulsory, leaving clients who use these firms unprotected should the worst happen. There have been a number of documented cases over recent months, both local and national where Lettings Agencies have closed and both Landlords and Tenants monies have been stolen by rogue agents, some of which have involved large sums of money which have been unrecoverable. It may sometimes seem attractive to use Lettings Agencies who offer reduced fees and offers that appear to be extremely competitive, who wouldn’t want to get the best deal, however, it is extremely important to use a firm that voluntarily registers with the

relevant regulatory bodies in order to protect your money and ensure that you are receiving the best advice by qualified members of staff. Winkworth Management are voluntary members of the following schemes and have been established as a Letting Agency in Bournemouth, Poole and the surrounding areas for over seventeen years and manage almost 500 properties in the area. We have ARLA qualified staff and an inhouse compliance department ensuring that we adhere to the latest regulations relating to letting properties. Our client accounts are regularly audited and we adhere to a strict code of conduct with regards to our client money protection scheme which protects our Landlords and Tenants money against dishonesty. Should you be considering letting your property or are not entirely happy with the service you are receiving from your current Letting Agent, please contact Winkworth to discuss the services we can offer on 01202 767313 or lettings.westbourne@ winkworth.co.uk

PICK UP A PENGUIN FROM ORIGINAL WALL “Good design is no more expensive than bad,” declared Allen Lane founder of the renowned British brand Penguin Books back in 1935. This sentiment still holds true some seventy years later for Yoka and David Mulley from Original Wall. The interior art company based in Canford Cliffs has taken the classic Penguin book and mounted it in a stylish white, black or oak box frame to add a chic touch of nostalgia to the modern home from just £44.95. Good design has been the focus of the Penguin brand since the very beginning. With its colourcoded bands and logo of a hastily sketched Penguin, the instantly recognisable sleeves that cover the affordable novels have been integral to the brand’s enduring success. As Penguin helped to bring art to a mass audience, it is Original Wall’s intention to bring a bit of character to people’s homes by making a piece of ready-made art accessible to everyone. Yoka explains: “We feel it is very important to effectively hang Penguin paperbacks as art as the beauty of the books can be lost on a bookshelf.” It was while framing their own art that the couple hit on the idea of framing Penguin books and started collecting books from charity shops, car boot sales and online. “It has become a bit of an obsession,” admits David, “After a while you can spot a Penguin Book from 20 paces!” But not all books make the grade; titles that are too obscure, nonsensical or dull are left on the shelf. There is a strict vetting process so only Penguins that are in the right condition are picked to join the exclusive Original Wall collection. David reveals: “The books need to be distressed but not too distressed. The aging process is very attractive and the fact that the books have survived for so long is astonishing.” Yoka adds: “It is evident that the books have meant a lot for their owners to have kept them for so long. We have one book with an inscription which says; ‘Dear John, I still love you in spite of everything, Merry Christmas!’ ” Both David and Yoka believe it is the personality of the books that makes the brand so special. Shoppers can browse the range of funny, insightful and thought-provoking titles available online at www.originalwall.co.uk. From ‘Man, the Unknown’, ‘Bullets for the Bridegroom’ and David’s personal favourite ‘The Social Life of the Insect World’, it is easy to find the perfect gift. The books are colour-coded in the Penguin house style; orange for fiction, blue for biography, pink for travel and adventure, green for crime and light blue for the Pelicans non-fiction. Hanging a number of different coloured books in a row to create repetition can help to make a real statement in the home.

“With repetition the books move away from being just an artefact in a frame and become art,” says David. “One of our customers, a banker in London, selected 36 framed books and displayed them in a grid of six across and six down, creating a very effective feature wall.” With recent news of the merger of Penguin Books with German giant Random House, home to the best-seller Fifty Shades of Grey, the world is questioning the future of the book industry in the face of eBooks. Yoka believes that people will always love a physical book as ‘you can’t sit in the bath with an iPad.’ While David strongly argues that books are killing the planet and admits: “I don’t think I’ve read any of our Penguin collection! I just stick them in frames.” If books do become an iconic relic of the past, Original Wall will keep them sacrosanct, preserving a pretty piece of history in a beautiful box frame for the home. For the full list of titles and to buy the framed books, DC comics and USA number plates go to www.originalwall.co.uk

WHEN WALLS BECOME WINDOWS Just shutters echo the striking lines of architects with perfectly shaped plantation shutters Throughout the history of Architecture is the struggle for light, for more than a thousand years Architects have striven for windows of the greatest possible size, within the limitations of building materials and construction methods. In the 1930’s houses with virtually an entire wall of glass began to dot the landscape, particularly along the coast where optimising a view was paramount, bringing nature into the home and creating a sense of outdoor living. The warmth of the sun is so important to our sense of wellbeing, we strive to be closer to the sun and soak up the rays, and the sun has influenced architectural design to meet our need for natural light. Natural light is an abundant source of effective lighting and today with the emphasis on curtailing energy consumption, with manufactured energy costs rapidly rising and increasing shortages, we are becoming more aware of the need to make optimum use of natural resources. But when the sun goes down and winter draws in, we can no longer rely on heat and light from the sun, we need to look for alternative ways to keep the cold out and the warmth in. So walls have become windows and we are able to admire the outside world through ergonomically designed angled windows, rectangles, straight lines and curves. But this now creates a new set of problems, how do we dress these beautifully designed windows? How do we keep the cold out and the sun from damaging our soft furnishings? The answer is simple – Shutters. Shutters are a “green” way to insulate your home year round. For example, opening the louvres during the day in the winter allows the sunlight to warm the house and closing them at night keeps the warm air in. During the summer months, keeping the louvres at

80


different angles during the hottest part of the day shields the house from sunlight and reduces the need to turn up the air conditioning. Just Shutters offer the complete range of both solid wooden shutters and louvered plantation shutters for all window shapes including round, angled, arched and the interesting shapes required for angled and triangle windows, conservatories and glass roofs. Director, Chris Rocker says “Every home we visit for a consultation is exciting, there are so many different styles of windows and we enjoy working with our customers to create a solution they will love for many years to come, especially when the customer is unsure as to whether they are able to have the shutters they desire, due to an odd shape or size of a window or door”. He continues, “We visit some of the most beautiful homes which are ergonomically designed where windows are the main feature. The problem many people face is an interior design issue. They want to make their home stunning and welcoming, and often a large area of glass is not conversant with a ‘homely’ ambiance’. Plantation shutters are an ideal solution to this, reducing a vast cold space with warm wood and colour in the winter yet open with plenty of light filtration in the warmer months. Individually made to fit your window exactly, expertly fitted and requiring little space, plantation shutters can be recessed into openings, for both doors and windows, and once fitted the benefits are enormous, no maintenance required, reduction of noise and draughts, lower fuel bills and privacy. And specially shaped shutters will not cost as much as you think, Chris explains; “Plantation shutters are a once in a lifetime investment, we at Just Shutters understand this and strive to make your experience easy and enjoyable. As a local, family company with over 25 years experience, excellent customer service and reviews, we use only the highest quality products and we have not yet encountered a window we cannot enhance with shutters. Just Shutters will create and expertly fit shaped shutters that echo the striking lines used by Architects”. Let the sun shine in! 81

Local Double glaziers We have chosen a selection of local double glazing specialists for you.

Installing double glazing in your home is an expensive commitment to make. However, although it is a lot of money at first glance – with prices between around £2,500 to over £6,000 depending on the size of your home – it can save you money over time. Double glazing works by trapping air between two panes of glass and this results in less heat loss through your windows and better insulation against noise and condensation. When you cut the heat loss through the glass of your windows and doors, you are making a more comfortable environment in your home for you and your family. To save you the trouble of searching for a reliable recommeded double glazier, we bring you the highest rated local businesses to choose from.

TOP TABLE

Setting a beautiful Christmas table which complements the seasonal feast is easy with advice from the experts. House finds our top table styles.

In the festive flurry of decking the halls and choosing the presents, it’s easy to neglect a key focal point - the dining table. Gathering for the Christmas feast is one of the highlights of the celebration, and a well-decorated table will make the meal even more memorable. “A Christmas table should be so inviting and stylish that no one will want to leave it,” says Susie Watson, founder of Susie Watson Designs, hand-made home accessories specialists. “Linen for a cloth and napkins really dresses a table and adds character to a setting, while candles are essential for soft, twinkling light.

90

“If you prefer informality, choose an arrangement of seasonal cut flowers in a large jug and opt for handpainted ceramics. For details, add jewel-coloured baubles or small gifts at each place setting.” Ensure the table’s centrepiece isn’t too dominating, or too high that it interferes with the eyeline of guests, Watson advises, as that can discourage conversation. “A vase filled with glass baubles and twisted hazel twigs is a lovely way to conjure a rustic, country feel, and festive foods such as walnuts, oranges and berries could be arranged in small bowls around it,” Watson suggests. Three experts reveal their favourite festive looks...

REVEL IN RED Red adds warmth and richness to a table setting and, as a traditional seasonal colour, can also evoke pleasing memories of past celebrations. “Creating a sumptuous table is the final finishing touch of the celebrations,” says Wendy Miranda at Lakeland. “Red can’t fail to have impact and works beautifully if it’s combined with a nature theme, using berries and greenery from the garden or artificial garlands, and this year you can enhance it by picking up on the trend for featuring woodland creatures.” Light and decorate the centre of the table in one easy move, she suggests, by using an LED-lit winter berry garland arranged down the centre. Add more decorative detail by entwining cuttings of ivy around chunky white pillar candles and the stems of glasses. TABLE TIP: Create fashionable Scandi-style with a simple red and white theme. Tie red ribbon and a red bauble around each napkin, and use the ribbon and a name label to decorate each chair. Conjure more formal grandeur by combining red with glittering gold accessories.

Layer gold touches - for instance, a gold charger plate, napkin and gold bauble on each place setting - to show them off to maximum effect. “Place a few key decorations, perhaps gold baubles or metallic gold-sprayed fruit which match your colour scheme, along the length of a table runner to immediately create a festive effect and impact,” says Kerry Nicholls, tabletop buyer for John Lewis. “Start with a tall centrepiece, either candlesticks or a flower arrangement, and work outwards in descending height. “Match place mats and napkins to your runner to keep the theme consistent.”

Dobbies Light Up Gold Star , £20 www.dobbies.com

TABLE TIP: Tiny touches personalise a table. Put a small goldsprayed box holding a gold-wrapped sweet or a bauble beside each place setting as a table treat for your guests.

WILL CROKER 2012……WHAT A YEAR THAT WAS Knights Director and regular columnist Will Croker, reflects on the year past and what may lie ahead. 2012 has been some year for the UK. There are the obvious events; The Olympics, The Jubilee and The Ryder Cup to name just a few. But underneath the British headline grabbers there are some events that also represent the world we live in today. First; The Leveson Inquiry. The saddest thing about this situation is that the inquiry was needed at all, yet many believe that the consequences and recriminations are far from draconian enough. The public also have a part to play. We buy the papers that prompted the uproar and it is this public acceptance and appreciation of what they do, that drove the journalists to push beyond the boundary of decency and into the illegal. What is striking is the way that we, as a society, believe we have the right to know about more and more of people’s private lives. This is brought about by the social media phenomenon which gives us all the divine right to know everything about every one we have ever met. Surely it’s access to the internet and human curiosity that drives our changing educational and moral lay lines. The next sub story that stood out was the story of Felix Baumgunter. The only way of describing plummeting to earth from the Stratosphere with nothing but a helmet and some nylon for protection is nuts. But isn’t that what living is all about. We will only ever know what we can do if we push the boundaries of human endeavour and set new aspirations. Mr Baumgartner may well have been crazy but he has shown yet again that we still don’t know the limits of human endeavour. To be bold might be to stumble occasionally but surely that is better than never having known. Finally we move to finance. This year has again been an incredibly tough one for the people of the UK, as austerity measures bite and disposable income falls. Yet compared to Greece we are in easy street. As the world shrinks financial implications that affect, say, the Far East now have a lasting impact on all economies. But it is the Euro Zone that we are most closely affiliated with. What is interesting is that despite all the sabre rattling and ultimatum’s the member states still found a way to rescue Greece twice this year. This bolstering of one economy seems to have driven the rest of the world to feel that we can move on. To spend on the economy, infrastructure and art is to shove two fingers up to financial depression. It is the clearest evidence yet that rather than squirelling our nuts away, we should get them out and share them. If the banks allow it then we can start to invest and buy non-essential frippery and then maybe can we dispel fear. For example, a pastel version of The Scream raised $120m at auction. That wasn’t even for the real painting! And in Tokyo the world’s tallest building was opened called Skytree, which at 630 metres must qualify as a luxury that was born out of vanity rather than necessity. These stories all relate to my year. 2012 has been a year of small but modest growth for Knights, but I decided that the time has come to stop wrapping myself up in cotton wool and to branch out and try to determine my future rather than just succumb to the market forces. So this year I asked for assistance from the bank, aware that they are being pushed to help small business’ grow. They agreed and now I am on the verge of opening my second branch, this time in the heart of the town. It might not be as bold as Felix was, but to me it is an enormous leap of faith into the unknown. We also launched a new web site that I hope will be the Auto Trader for property. Direct2landlord.co.uk is the amalgamation of ideas, fostered by the realisation that people want to try new forms of advertising and that the vast majority of us do use the internet to broaden our horizons. We have had to, like the rest of the country, accept social media’s place in business and embrace it. What I know from watching world events is that you are not going to achieve unless you take a risk. The same way that the Germans have taken a risk on Greece, the art lover took a punt on a pastel and the Japanese built a big tower just because they can. So what may seem to be a fanciful addition can be treated as a wise investment if the sentiment is good and the courage to succeed is adhered to. 2012 has been a year of enlightenment for me, 2013 is where I start to make my dreams come true. I hope you have a wonderful Christmas period and a prosperous New Year.

DANIEL RADCLIFFE JUST WHAT THE DOCTOR ORDERED Daniel Radcliffe appears alongside Jon Hamm in new drama A Young Doctor’s Notebook, which airs on Sky Arts on Thursdays. The Harry Potter actor reveals all about the first television series he’s done since finishing at Hogwarts, explains why the story about a doctor in Russia in 1917 is actually a comedy, and what it was like to receive the call-up from Mad Men star Hamm.

168


Daniel Radcliffe’s latest project is a television adaptation of a short story written by Russian author Mikhail Bulgakov in 1926. It’s a comedy set in the days ahead of the Russian revolution and sees him play Vladimir Bomgard, a doctor posted to a remote village to treat, among other ailments, a vast outbreak of syphilis. Hedwig, I have a feeling we’re not in Hogwarts any more. “It IS a very hard show to pitch to people,” admits the 23-year-old Harry Potter star, laughing. “We have to say, ‘Yes, it’s a medical comedy set in Russia in 1917. It’s also about morphine addiction and syphilis and it’s a meditation on memory’.”

Not only that but the doctor is played as a young man by Radcliffe and as a middle-aged man by Mad Men actor Jon Hamm, often in the same scene. Even though there’s plenty of slapstick, the premise is a lot to get your head around and, chances are, without names such as Radcliffe and Hamm involved (both self-confessed Bulgakov geeks), it might never have been made. It came about when, at the Baftas in February this year, Hamm got chatting to a television producer who asked him what he was reading. Hamm met Radcliffe that night too, and that got him thinking. “I’ve been told since that they sent the script off going, ‘This is a long shot. Dan Radcliffe?’ They didn’t know that I’m obsessed with Bulgakov, I mean I went to Russia to visit Bulgakov’s house for my 21st birthday. I’ve loved him since I was about 18, 19, and they didn’t know,” he says.

In his passage from child to adult star, Radcliffe has had to tread carefully. Since putting down his wand he’s appeared in the film adaptation of The Woman In Black and can shortly be seen playing Allen Ginsberg in Kill Your Darlings and the male lead alongside Zoe Kazan in romantic comedy The F Word.He says he “would be mad, frankly” to take on anything that would tie him up for another 10 years, as the Potter franchise did, and that many of the scripts he’s sent are “fine” but often unoriginal and uninteresting. “I’m looking for anything that interests me. I’ve got no criteria other than that. If I find it interesting, and it excites me and I get passionate about it then that’s what I want to be doing and that can take any form. Original ideas, that’s what capture my imagination. And I’d love to do more comedy.”He names George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Ryan Gosling and Matt Damon as actors whose careers he admires. “The combination of commercial with indie is really inspirational,” he says.

If that’s a mission statement for his career then A Young Doctor’s Notebook can be placed confidently within the ‘indie’ division. Even Radcliffe himself was amazed at how much gore they could get away with. He recalls: “We did the read-through for this and I was kind of convinced there would be baulking at the amount of blood and guts in this, but Sky were just like, ‘Keep all the gore’. They realise it’s a vital part of the storytelling - it’s not just there to shock people.”

Radcliffe is, he admits, easily shocked and very squeamish.

In real life, with his black jeans and T-shirt, delicate 5ft 5in frame and luminescent pale skin, Radcliffe could at first glance be mistaken for a teenage Goth hanging around a town centre. But with a face as famous as his, he’s recognised everywhere he goes, even in Russia.

“Do you watch Embarrassing Bodies?” he asks, “I can’t. I went out with a girl called Laura for a while, and she loved that show and I couldn’t watch it but I could watch her watching it. She just sat there with the kind of blank, desensitised look of a war veteran.”

“I don’t know where I’d have to go to be completely unrecognised but probably somewhere that wouldn’t be a particularly pleasant place,” he sighs.

Radcliffe, who is now reportedly single after splitting from production assistant Rosie Coker, is bound to send pulses racing with A Young Doctor’s Notebook, with fans already in a lather about a scene in which he and Hamm share a bath. Modestly, he says he was flattered to be cast as a younger version of the American pin-up.

In fact, Radcliffe reveals that he’s actually recognised more now that the Harry Potter franchise has come to an end. “I wouldn’t say it’s got worse, I’d say it’s got more. Now it’s like 80% to 20% of people using my name rather than ‘Harry’, which is really lovely to be honest. “But if you’re famous and if you’re an actor, even if you don’t have a character that you’re associated with, people recognise you anyway. Alan Rickman had the best one. Someone went up to him and said, ‘You know who you are, don’t you?’” Radcliffe recounts, laughing. “Ways NOT to start a conversation with Alan Rickman!”

“It’s very flattering, obviously. I mean, God, I hope I grow up to look like that. But it’s also very flattering professionally because we only met for a brief second at the Baftas and I’d just finished doing a Saturday Night Live out there and he’s friends with a lot of those guys, so maybe he heard from them that I could be funny,” says Radcliffe,

Who’s already earnt his comedy stripes with a hilarious turn in Ricky Gervais’s Extras. Maybe Radcliffe’s future lies in Woody Allen-style

comedies. He’s certainly self-deprecating enough, and says Manhattan is one of his favourite films. “I’m talking to a director about doing a film at some point in the future and Manhattan’s one of our reference points,” he says.

And though his tastes and behaviour can appear boyish, Radcliffe seems older than his 23 years. “I think I feel older, yeah. I always had accelerated growth, not physically obviously, but just because suddenly I was in a world where adults were my co-workers or peers. I think you can’t help but learn to interact with them in a different way which gives you an air of maturity even if I’m not mature.”

And what is the former child wizard’s most childish quality? “I think I have quite a childish sense of humour and,” he admits, “I play a lot of PlayStation.”

WHERE ARE THE HARRY POTTER CREW NOW? Emma Watson, 22, has been racking up film roles since playing studious Hermione Granger. First in biopic My Week With Marilyn and this year in romcom The Perks Of Being A Wallflower. In 2013 she will play herself in apocalypse comedy The End Of The World and she’s just wrapped on Darren Aronofsky’s epic Noah. Rupert Grint, 24, who played Ron Weasley, Hermione’s love interest, carried the Olympic torch this year and will be heard next year alongside David Tennant and Jim Broadbent in the voice cast of Postman Pat: The Movie. He’s also due to play Eddie the Eagle Edwards and appear in The Drummer about Beach Boy Dennis Wilson. Matthew Lewis, 23, who put in a scene-stealing performance in the final film as nerd-turnedhero Neville Longbottom, is winning plaudits this year in the West End alongside Laurence Fox in Our Boys.

BEAR’S SURVIVAL GUIDE 10 LIFE LESSONS TO IMPROVE YOUR LIFE: THE F-WORDS Grylls’s simple philosophy for living a fulfilling life is based on the five Fs, he says, which stand for: Family, Friends, Faith, Fun and Following your dreams. “My late father always told me that living a good life was about “looking after your friends and family and having the courage to go for your dreams”. “Luckily, those simple values meant much more to him than my school reports, which weren’t always glowing!” says Grylls. He has a strong Christian faith and believes that “life should be an adventure, so make sure you have a daily dose of fun. Always cherish your dreams, which will give you powerful life-changing purpose.” EMBRACE ADVERSITY Problems or challenges should be regarded as valuable, because “storms make us stronger”, he says. “No one ever achieves their dream without first stumbling over a few obstacles along the way,” says Grylls. “Trust me, if you find a road without any obstacles, I can promise you it doesn’t lead anywhere worthwhile. “There are few greater feelings than finding out you can achieve more, and endure more, than you’d previously imagined, and it’s only when we’re tested that we realise just how brightly we can shine.” DON’T SAY ‘TRY’ Substitute the word ‘try’ for ‘endeavour’, suggests Grylls. “Trying is often associated with failure, such as ‘trying again’ or ‘tried his best’, which sounds as if ‘trying’ to do something means you’re setting yourself up to fall short of your goal,” he points out. “Endeavour indicates real intent, a willingness to stick with it, and an ability to see things through to the end,” he says. “Our words and how we talk to ourselves, matter. They shape our attitudes and our attitudes become our life.” MAKE THE LEAP People often delay making decisions or embarking on a new project because they’re waiting for everything to be perfect, says Grylls. “It’s an illusion that everything should be sorted and your ducks in line before you go for something, whether it’s starting a new business, climbing a mountain or proposing to a girlfriend,” he says. “In reality, we rarely have all parts of our life nicely sealed and wrapped and that’s not always essential for success. “To live a life of adventure and impact, we just need to have the will, and then begin with the first simple step. The rest is then the process - hard and challenging, to be sure - but still a process. We’re limited only by the extent of our courage, tenacity and vision.” 170

KEY TEAM INGREDIENT “While enthusiasm, ability and aptitude all have to be on someone’s CV before I’ll take them into a life or death situation as part of an expedition team, there’s one other quality I’m always looking out for - kindness,” says Grylls. “Kindness inspires us, motivates us, and creates a strong, tight team. Don’t underestimate the power of it to change lives and encourage others to be better.” He recalls that as one of a four-man SAS reserves squad in the roasting heat of the North African desert, the group suffered life-threatening dehydration. “I was in a particularly bad way and my sergeant put aside his own needs and insisted I drink the last portion of water from his bottle. “It was the kindness, not the actual water itself, that gave me the strength to keep going when I had nothing left inside me. I’ve never forgotten that single act.” WAVE WORRY GOODBYE Most of us worry over endlessly things we have no control over - things we can’t change, says Grylls. “Fears and worries about things which never materialise weigh us down and slow us up,” he points out. “Where you can, drop the worries. Remember the saying, ‘The past is history, the future is a mystery, but the now is a gift - that’s why it’s called the present’. Live in the present and cherish it.” LAUGH AT YOURSELF Great people, he says, make you feel great about yourself. They build others up, pay compliments often and freely, and don’t pull others down to push themselves up. “So laugh at yourself, not others. Great men and women never take themselves seriously. It’s part of what makes them great,” he urges. “Build others up before yourself and talk well, not nastily, about others in public. It’s one of my life goals that, at my funeral, those who know me will be able to stand up and say they never heard me speak badly of anyone else.” And he adds honestly: “By the way, I’ve failed at this many times already, but it’s still a good goal to have!” SHED BAGGAGE Often people are living someone else’s aspirations rather than their own, says Grylls, or because of negative predictions in their early life, they believe they can’t succeed or change direction. “So many people I’ve met over the years walk around carrying a heap of emotional hang-ups that weigh them down,” he says. “A burden of parental expectations can make them pick a job based on what they ‘should’ do rather than what they’d ‘love’ to do.


LEARN COURAGE Real courage has nothing to do with showy displays of bravado, it’s is about how we react in the face of overwhelming odds, says Grylls. “It’s impossible to be courageous if you aren’t also afraid. Courage involves facing our fears and walking through them,” he says. “It’s not about having no fear, but about doing what is necessary despite the fear. Battles in life are scary, I know, I’ve been in enough. “Courage comes in many forms, but the common thread is that it’s about finding the spirit inside us to do what is right, in the big moments, despite the fear. “Never assume you’re incapable of being brave - I’ve seen that the most unlikely people can often be the most courageous people in a difficult situation.” BE GRATEFUL Being grateful for the many simple blessings, whether it’s health, family, friends or even just our life, helps us keep a perspective on the tough challenges we face, he believes. “If we get angry, bitter or cynical, we will attract more negative stuff into our lives,” he says. “Being thankful will almost always make you feel better and is one of the best natural combatants against depression.” :: Information: A Survival Guide For Life by Bear Grylls is published by Bantam Press, priced £18.99. Available now. TRIED & TESTED Office workers with tired muscles could help themselves by lifting small weights in short bursts totalling only an hour a week, a Danish study has just revealed. Laura Wurzal tests a Spin Gym, a small gadget for an upper-body workout.

WHAT IS IT? The Spin Gym is weighted in the middle with a 144g disc and is aimed at those who want a resistance workout for their upper arms, shoulders and back and to stretch tired muscles. The Spin Gym is held away from the body as it is spun and then pulled in and out, creating a steady rhythm via pull cords. WHAT’S IT LIKE? This looks like an adult version of a children’s toy, where you spin a large button or disc on a cord. Being hunched over a keyboard all day can leave me stiff and aching, so I hoped the Spin Gym would be a good way to release the tension in my muscles. It claims that with just five minutes of exercise a day, you can strengthen your arms, leaving them looking and feeling firm and toned. I’d give full marks to the accompanying DVD - it’s informative, easy to follow and I liked the variety of exercises. However, even though it looks simple to do, it took me quite a while to master the spinning technique. Although it says you can watch television or walk around while you use the gadget, I’d advise against that at first, as you need to concentrate to ensure you don’t lose control of it. If you’re an accident-prone type, be careful, as I can personally testify that the metal weight can hurt if it goes astray! I did see an improvement in my bingo wings, which felt slightly firmer after using it regularly over a few weeks, but I feel the Spin Gym would be best as part of an exercise programme, as swinging it around can be rather boring. At nearly £20, it might make a fun, quirky Christmas gift to inspire someone to exercise, or it’s ideal for the gymbunny who has every fitness aid and wants to try something different.

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 ten feet 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 three 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.

FIVE MINUTES WITH... ROBERT LINDSAY

Robert Lindsay, 62, has worked on some of the most memorable projects of the past 40 years, including TV favourites Citizen Smith, GBH and My Family. He talks to House about Baftawinning sitcom Spy, the time he nearly became James Bond, and his next big screen role with Nicole Kidman

Congratulations on the success of spy. Did making it involve chuckles from day one? Yes, and of course the cast get on so well together. It’s a fantastic company of people and Darren’s (Boyd) such a great leading man as well. He’s so inventive. It’s been a really happy time on set. Your character, the examiner, is a lot different to more recent roles such as ben harper in my family? He’s unusual, isn’t he? (Spy writer) Simeon (Goulden) has taken it a little bit further this series as well. I know I get to do some pretty outrageous things. He’s been really great to play, and he becomes a bit of a father figure to Darren, but in a slightly twisted way, which keeps the series bubbling along. But I think all the characters are so eccentric and off the wall. Simeon’s a very good writer. My family was a massive mainstream hit. Was it nice to have a change after so long? Yes, you know it’s a whole different set-up. It’s single camera and no studio audience, which is a whole different format really. I love a studio audience because I love theatre, and there’s something nice about going in front of an audience with a script. 182

If there was an american version of spy, would you like to reprise the role for the us market?

and lifted me to play it in the movie. It’s going to be great. This will be ready for the New Year, for the Cannes Festival probably.

I don’t think we’re going to get the opportunity. I know that Simeon has been talking to LA about making an American version. I think it’s going to be called Mission: Impossible and Tom Cruise is going to do it. I’m only joking. I definitely think the Americans will love it. I wonder if they’ll get the English humour.

Alan bleasdale’s gbh was a masterpiece. What are your memories?

Were you ever considered for james bond? I was up for it many years ago, yes. During the Tim Dalton regime, I remember going to Pinewood for a couple of interviews and actually doing a screen test at one point, but I think maybe I found too much humour in it. Tell us about your next movie, grace of monaco? I’ve been here (Monaco) filming since the end of August and I’m here until December 8, and it’s an incredibly glamorous film with the lovely Nicole Kidman playing Grace Kelly; Tim Roth is playing Rainier, and I’m recreating my role as (Aristotle) Onassis that I did on stage. I was very fortunate that the French producer saw me do it on stage in England

Without doubt, it’s one of the greatest things I’ve ever been involved in in front of a camera. Plus, the fact of working with (Michael) Palin and Julie, my lovely Julie Walters, who was playing my mother in that, and since then she has played my lover, my wife and my mistress. We keep wonder if she’ll ever play my daughter. Finally, was there a film or play you saw as a youth that inspired you to become an actor? I’m a frustrated song-and-dance man. I did a musical, Me And My Girl, on Broadway, and made a bit of a reputation for myself doing that, which was a bit of a fluke. I was acting my socks off; convinced everyone that I was a song-and-dance man, and Singin’ In The Rain has got to be the movie that influenced me more than anything when I was a kid. :: Robert Lindsay stars in Spy, series one, which is out on DVD now

RECYCLING NEVER LOOKED SO GOOD At Reformed Plastics all of their products are made from 100% recycled plastic. They manufacture products themselves and then sell direct to the Domestic and Commercial sector. Due to ever increasing importance to recycle & protect the environment, the products are made from 100% recycled plastic. The plastic used is recycled on-site and is the perfect alternative to wood. Our aims are to help rebuild the environment by utilizing a commodity, which people would otherwise just throw away, and so turn what to some would be rubbish into a valuable product for everybody. Plastic has many practical & very useful properties & has an infinite range of different uses, some of which being are as decking, fencing, outdoor furniture, planters, boardwalks, landscaping, bollards, signage & construction etc. The list of possibilities is endless and the long-term advantages it has over traditional materials are staggering! It’s a great investment, as it never needs to be replaced due to its high strength and durability, therefore it quickly pays for itself in the long run. In short, it’s worry free! They recycle plastic then manufacture goods from it, produce recycled plastic furniture for use in gardens and patios and retail recycled plastic products such as recycled plastic fencing and recycled plastic decking. The concept of Reformed Plastics was born over 10 years ago from the curiosity of its founder. Being an engineer by profession, and having had his own UPVC Windows business, and also being the 194

practical and inquisitive person that he is, one day he decided to find out what was really happening to the waste that people were so freely throwing away. His research and interest lead him to focus on plastics, how it can be recycled and what it could be reused for. He discovered that the USA & a few European countries had been recycling and remanufacturing waste plastics into alternative timber products for many years, instead of throwing it all into landfill! Over time, slowly but surely he developed a few basic products in the form of planks and posts and very soon he began to receive interest from people wanting to know more about this revolutionary product that is both an environmentally friendly alternative to normal timber and sustainable which means it will save them a lot of money in the long term! From then on, the rest as they say is history.


WHY ARE RECYCLED PLASTIC PRODUCTS DIFFERENT? Does not rot Will not need painting or staining Is wear resistant Resistant to vandalism Resistant to salt water Resistant to insects and bacteria

What can the Plastic be used for ? The manufactured plastic has many practical and very useful properties. The main base of our products are in the form of planks and posts which can be used on their own for garden fences, both low for front gardens and high for side and back fences for instance, along road sides and around fields and paddocks just to name a few. It is also possible to produce a number of other products out of our plastic, such as picnic tables. These would vary in size, suitable for adults and children. Park benches, outdoor tables, square or rectangular plant boxes, decking and seating... the list is endless. Does it need to be cleaned? Products only need to be cleaned after a spillage. The collection of airborne dirt is inevitable and we would recommend a simple spray-down with a hose or wipe over with a damp cloth on a regular basis to ensure that your purchase is kept in the best condition.

Financial benefits Achieving value for money is a key driver for any purchasing decision. Although some recycled products have greater up-front cost, their longevity and durability make them a more cost-effective option over the long term. How strong is it? It is extremely solid and strong being able to withstand stress levels of well over 10 tons. It is heavy, durable, virtually indestructible and will not need to be replaced. In short, it’s worry free. Is there a colour choice? Yes. Our main colours are black, brown and green. However, we can produce products to a choice of colours! This removed the need for painting & staining. Visit www.reformedplastics.co.uk or email sales@reformedplastics.co.uk 01202 385 751

Fancy a drink? Our drinks columnist Sam Wylie-Harris pops the cork on some festive fizz and casual wines to embrace the party spirit.

With the halls decked with boughs of holly and glittering holiday decorations, it's time to unveil some clever wine pairings and share some festive cheer. Gathering friends and family invites an eclectic mix of tastes. Whether you prefer refreshing bubbles or an accessible style, wine can blossom into something special when matched with finger food, party canapes and good company. To lift the mood and fire up the evening, here are some good all-rounders to grace the wine rack or ice bucket. Spanish cava comes in many shapes and forms, and while some may not be as bright as a button, Tanners Cava Brut, Traditional Method (ÂŁ8.90, www. tanners-wines.co.uk) is in a league of its own. With an attractive, lemony richness and creamy, biscuity notes similar to champagne, its complex style makes it the perfect serve with a cheese plate or breaded prawns.

Albarino is the trendy Spanish white grape from Galacia that goes brilliantly with seafood and salty snacks. It’s also versatile enough to go with white meat, but the only drawback is it usually comes at a premium

Pretty in pink, Pinot Noir Rosado Vintage Cava 2009 (£13.99, Marks & Spencer) tastes as good as it looks and the fact that the winery is part of the Freixenet sparkling wine group is testament to its quality. Made from the red fruit pinot noir which gives champagne its strength and body, it’s delightfully dry and savoury with lots of crushed raspberry fruit to complement chorizo and other cold meats.

However, Asda has a good example that’s a perfect party pour. The attractive turquoise label of Alba Signature Albarino (£5.50, Asda) acts as an instant lift before you’ve even tasted the vibrant, fresh white flavours. Fruity with floral aromas and refreshing acidity, it’s also a lifesaver if the conversation runs dry.

£13.99 £5.50 £8.99 £6.99 For bigger thirsts and a Santa-size welcome of cheer, Sainsbury’s Taste the Difference Conegliano Prosecco, magnum (£14.99 from £19.99 until December 11, Sainsbury’s) offers unbeatable value. The equivalent of two bottles, it will fill approximately 12 to 14 flutes and can always be chilled in a big bucket of ice if there’s no space in the fridge. Light and refreshing, you can always add some peach puree to create an Italian bellini and string the bubbles along that much further.

£14.99 Prosecco is the perfect combination of delicate small bubbles and a burst of freshness - and tipplers are sure to find this enduring appeal in Waitrose Prosecco NV, Italy (£8.99, Waitrose). A delicious new fizz to its shelves, delight in the refreshing fruity taste with attractive aromas, a touch of sweet almond and dry finish that works like a dream with parma ham and mozzarella bites.

Another crowd-pleaser dressed in sky blue, Cowrie Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2012 Marlborough, New Zealand (£6.99, Waitrose) will certainly perk up the palate of anyone coming in from the cold. Typical of the Marlborough style, it’s crisp and racy with a burst of ripe guava fruit and kiwi on the mouth. Match its grassy finish with shellfish, mackerel pate or oriental snacks. Corbieres in France’s Languedoc region is famous for its quaffable, rich, spicy reds, which usually come in around the £7 to £8 mark, so not exactly party plonk, unless you try a supermarket label such as Wine Selection Corbieres, France (£3.98, Asda). Not quite smooth enough to be ‘beautiful’, but this rustic red has a velvety texture and a herby, ripe fragrance, which is sure to meet your guests’ approval.

Best buy Skinny Vinni... A sparkling wine-based drink, Original Vinni Sparkling (£3.49, 5.5% abv, 56cl, Sainsbury’s) is a refreshing alternative to cider or beer and it’s not too sweet. Ideal for tipplers who like the look of a crisp, pale fizz, this moscato-based lower alcohol wine tastes great with dips and snacks and the stylish bottle will complement a spread of festive drinks. 197

Professional Surveying Services for Landlords & Homebuyers

WHY HAVE A SURVEY? We specialise in preparing Homebuyer reports & Full Building Surveys in a timely manner and guarantee to be one of most competitive Chartered Surveyors in Dorset, with the added bonus of not charging VAT. By not commissioning a survey prior to purchase, homebuyers are taking a significant and potentially costly risk. A mortgage lender’s valuation is not sufficient, it is purely a valuation carried out for the mortgage lender not the purchaser. By commissioning a survey any structural problems or urgent defects are highlighted, enabling the buyer to make an informed decision before committing to purchase the property. In many cases the survey can be used as a negotiation tool to reduce the purchase price to reflect the cost of works that may be highlighted.

Homebuyer Reports From £250 Full Building Surveys From £450 Property Management 6.5%* SERVICES WE OFFER • Residential building surveys • Commercial building surveys • Dilapidation assesments for landlords & tenants • Landlord & tenant consultancy • General surveying services • Property management

‘FOR RICHER OR POORER’ – WHAT ARE YOUR HOPES FOR 2013? Weddings are expensive but the cost of divorce can be even greater and more stressful! Everyone enters a marriage in the hope and expectation that theirs will be the one that lasts but with more than one in three marriages failing, what can you do to try and minimise the stress and cost if your relationship breaks down?

202

In the past you may have been advised – ‘very little’! However there is a growing movement by the Courts to recognise Agreements entered into by parties to a marriage, before the marriage takes place – known as ‘pre-nuptial’ or ‘pre-marital’ Agreements. When you marry, the assets held by each person , even if held in one name, can become assets of the marriage. Upon a divorce, a Judge can decide who should keep such assets and it may not be the person who originally brought the asset to the marriage! In shorter marriages or where the parties enter a marriage on a different, unequal basis, a Pre-marital Agreement may have a significant impact on the outcome of a divorce. Many now enter marriage later in life when assets, such as a property and pension, have already been accumulated. For others, this may not be a first marriage or there may be children from another relationship to be considered. The assets each party may have and how these are to be considered in the future can be dealt with in a Pre-marital Agreement prior to entering into the marriage, to reflect what both parties consider to be fair. Provision can also be made to deal with the impact of future events, such as having children or receiving an inheritance.

It is better to discuss such issues before you marry when decisions can be made fairly, without pressure. To meet the court’s conditions both parties must be open with each other as to their financial position and have separate legal advice during negotiations and to finalise the Agreement. Further the preparation of the Agreement must not be rushed, to avoid any pressure by one party on the other. My advice – do not leave your future to chance, take control and put preparation of a pre-marital Agreement at the top of your list of ‘Things to do before I marry’! Hopefully you will never have to use it but it is one step you will never regret taking, whatever the future holds for you both. If the thought of getting married in 2013 is not for you and you have opted instead to live together, then you might consider a co-habitation agreement which recognises what both of you are or are planning to contribute to the relationship. It is a sensible step that can save considerable angst and expense in the event that you subsequently separate. If you would like any further information then contact an office near you and ask to speak to someone in the family team. Bournemouth 01202 421 111 or Poole 01202 725 400

“We owned a patch of land beside our house that our twin sons had enjoyed as they were growing up. It was a great space for swings, slides and trampolines, then later for go-karts and basketball. Once our sons left home, it seemed like a lot of work to maintain the area so we contacted Land and Plot Finder. They were friendly and helpful and the money they got for us is helping towards our sons’ university fees. It has also paid for home improvements including a new conservatory.” Mrs and Mrs Johnson If you think you have a plot suited to development, call Land and Plot Finder.

We help you discover the value and potential of your plot, from disused commercial buildings to large gardens, and everything in between.

DIY EXPERT THIS WEEK: how to decorate the ceilings in your home with care.

BIG AL SAYS: If your home’s staircase is like mine, it has cracks along the top of the skirting board where movement occurs. The best product to use for this, and any wood cracking (or that could crack) with movement, is a flexible wood filler, such as Polycell Woodflex, (from £4.99 for 330ml, Homebase). It’s easy to apply, dries quickly and can be used indoors and out, which is really useful, so it can replace a number of different wood fillers in your toolbox.

Ceilings are awkward to work on and, of course, not as noticeable as walls, but that doesn’t mean you can ignore them when they get tatty. Ceilings get stained by things such as water leaks, candles, light bulbs, and smoke from real fires. Scrubbing the stain and repainting can work, but you often need to use a (solventbased) stain-block paint. First to prevent the stain from reappearing. As these paints can be pretty thick and so hard to apply neatly, you may want to try using an emulsion that blocks stains instead. These don’t conceal all stains but are much easier to work with. When using a solvent-based paint on a ceiling, it’s essential to wear protective glasses or goggles because you don’t want to risk getting the paint in your eyes. Wearing goggles (and a shower cap) is a good idea whenever you’re painting a ceiling because the paint will splatter

all over your face and hair. The easiest paints to use on ceilings, are semi-solid ones, which splatter and drip less because they’re not runny. If the ceiling’s less than perfect, make sure you use a matt paint because one with a sheen will highlight the imperfections. Ceilings are prone to hairline cracks, especially if there’s movement above, and these can be hard to eradicate long term. For large cracks, use a hairline-crack or flexible filler, but for small ones, again try Polycell 3 in 1 BaseCoat or Polycell Crack-Free Ceilings, which will fill hairline cracks as well as blocking stains. If you’re having the ceiling replastered, the plasterer should tape the hairline cracks to prevent them from coming through the new plaster, but if they miss any, the cracks will reappear.

DRIVING TO THE

Slopes in style

Sam Wylie-Harris takes the scenic route to Italy for a spot of skiing, and discovers that driving to the mountains is far more civilised than flying. By Sam Wylie-Harris Flying over the Alps will no doubt provide spectacular views of this world renowned mountain range, but I prefer to do things a little differently. And, I’ll be the first to admit, there’s a little bit of Daisy Duke in me. Besides, driving in Europe can be a lot more convenient than flying: you can pack as much as you like, you don’t have to battle through airport security, and the journey can be just as enjoyable as reaching the final destination. But a successful trip very much depends on the vehicle you choose to drive. I felt quite at home behind the wheel of the latest Ford Ranger Double Cab Wildtrak truck - the engine of which is capable of towing a 160 tonne steam locomotive - for the 12-hour journey from the south-east of England, through France to the Italian mountain town of Courmayeur. Our metallic orange four-by-four elevated us at least three feet above every other car on the road and, thanks to the grippy road handling and stability, surprising agility, traction control and emergency break assist, along with five-star safety rating and superb stereo sound, I had no fears about larging it on the right-hand side of the road on our 635-mile scenic route to the Aosta Valley. A beginner skier, my suitcase started out with a modest ski jacket, pants, thermals and fleeces, but with no luggage restrictions it quickly morphed into an entire season’s wardrobe of winter outfits. My husband, an expert skier with all the gear, was able

to pack his professional kit into the Ranger Wildtrak’s large flatbed without the hassle of having to lug it around an airport, and, better yet, having to fork out for excess baggage charges. With 30 miles to the gallon, a fuel (diesel) capacity of 80 litres, and a 3.2 engine, we certainly looked the part as we pulled up to the Channel Tunnel at Folkestone for our crossing to Calais. Our road journey along the A26 through five tolls (total cost 480 Euros), took us through the French cities of Reims and Lyon, enroute to Chamonix, one of France’s oldest and most popular ski resorts. As we crawled up the mountain under a light dusting of snow, our 18in alloy wheels got their first taste of icy roads ahead of the Mont Blanc Tunnel. Almost as majestic as the mountain itself, the 7.2-milelong tunnel connects Chamonix with the chic Italian ski resort of Courmayeur and our charming, chalet-style hotel, Auberge de La Maison in Entreves. At 1,224m, Courmayeur sits at the foot of Mont Blanc, which at 4,810m, is the highest peak in the Alps. A unique location with breath-taking scenery, skiers can go off piste among jagged peaks, glaciers and giant rock formations or choose from more than 20 blue and black runs of pure white snow.

213


Non-skiers and holidaymakers need not miss out though. The gondola or cable car will transport visitors to one of the glacier terraces where you can enjoy a 360-degree panorama of the most famous alpine peaks, including The Matterhorn, Gran Paradiso and Switzerland’s Monte Rosa. Needless to say, I started out on the baby slope with Italian tots who were born with ski boots strapped to their ankles. Desperately trying to stay balanced, I kept my eyes on the horizon as advised by Antonio, my saintly ski instructor. Managing not to take a tumble, I carefully made my way down the slope in snowplough formation, perhaps not the most elegant of techniques but it kept me upright. On day two, spurred on by Antonio calling out to me, “You’re a natural!” I’d managed to negotiate the chairlift to the Stadio Slalom at 2,000m and, under his watchful eye, snowploughed and skied my way down the slope to Chiecco’s mountain restaurant for a welldeserved lunch. Perfect for poseurs who love nothing more than to sunbathe halfnaked on deckchairs with their boots planted firmly in the snow, this delicious suntrap serves a full spread of the best Italian antipasto, breads, sausage, meats and homemade spaghetti and ravioli. With full bellies and a wonderful feeling of achievement, afternoons were always more leisurely than the morning’s adrenalin rush. After a shuttle ride back to the hotel, we enjoyed a relaxing sauna to help relieve tired, aching muscles. Delighted to step into a heel, rather than a binding at the end of the day, I put my foot down on the Ranger Wildtrak’s accelerator and drove the three kilometres into the centre of Courmayeur. The town’s main cobbled pedestrian street, Via Roma, is a hub of designer boutiques, trendy bars, restaurants and ski shops, with plenty of apres-ski temptations to keep us there late into the night. We shopped for wines and cheeses, enjoyed cocktails in Bar Roma, dined at La Poste, and hit the dance floor until 3am at Courmaclub. Needless to say, we felt a bit like we’d been tangoed when we were woken early the next morning by the noise of heli-skiers, getting an express lift to the highest point of the mountain. Before we waved goodbye to the Alps, we filled the truck with gourmet treats including cheeses, sausage, olive oils and wines - a perk of unlimited hand luggage. And with my feet firmly encased in cosy winter snow boots, we drove through the Mont Blanc tunnel to begin the long drive home.

THE WORLD ACCORDING TO GEOFF

220

My mind was made up for me when I trooped into B and Q in late September to be greeted by a prodigious display of Christmas decorations, I would use this column to mobilise public opinion resulting in Middle England rising up creating an un-stoppable legion that would inevitably force any yuletide related activity exclusively into the month of December. Anybody found in breach of this new legislation would be handed tickets to a ’One Direction’ concert and a squad of enforcers would make sure that they use them. Since then two things have happened which have caused me to modify my strategy. In March our youngest daughter had her first child, alternately referred to as Max or Stigletz, apparently he is much taken with the notion of a bit of festive frolicking and during a recent conversation with his mother it was suggested to me that any subversive activity on my part that might conceivably detract from his enjoyment of the holy feast would have dire consequences. However the more compelling argument transpired yesterday when my wife returned home with my ’Thomas the Tank Engine’ advent calendar. Undeterred I will again stiffen my resolve for next year when one of the four voices in my head reminds me of dear old Publilus Syrus the 1st Century Latin philosopher who could often be heard muttering ’ beware the fury of a patient man’ as his wife handed him the inflatable Rudolph to stick on the roof. I must be honest with you here I was inducted into the Bah Humbug club as a result of an incident that took place many years ago. At that time my wife and I worked in the giftware sector and as such found ourselves at a trade show at the NEC in Birmingham. Tucked at the rear of a large import company’s stand was a forlorn looking stuffed dog with a pair of flock antlers perched on top of it’s head and one of the salesmen explained that they were looking for a distributor in the UK for this new product. In a heartbeat it was Christmas Day afternoon in a front parlour somewhere in England, I saw it all in soft focus as the twinkling lights on the tree set beside the table cast beguiling patterns on the pressed dates and reflected pleasingly off the cellophane on the Twiglets box. In the middle of a semi circle of contented adults and rosy cheeked kiddies sits ’Barfy’ the family dog resplendent in his new headgear, in a moment of holiday high jinks one of the children snatches the antlers off the dog and pops them onto the head of a snoozing Great Aunt Beatrice. Well the hilarity that ensues is all consuming and even an initially indignant ’Barfy’ is seen to give a wry smile. I have attained the holy grail of cross over marketing and my reverie switches to a gleaming new warehouse where bright yellow forklifts lovingly lower pallets of this years ’must have’ onto Eddie Stobart’s waiting pantechnicons. I am about to wander in to my office to count some more money when a sharp dig in the ribs causes my fantasy to dissolve before my eyes, ’ get a move on we have another nine aisles to cover before lunchtime’ rebukes my wife and who for the rest of that day and beyond stoically refuses to share my vision. From that day to this when seeing dog or human alike festooned in one of my flock antlers the urge to snatch them off and trample them underfoot is palpable, although this urge is on a sliding scale depending on the size of the dog/person. I am however comforted by the thought that I started off with nothing and still have most of it left. I shall finish in a more upbeat manner as I recall the one thing I really do miss about Christmas, ‘The Office Party’ even now I can see my reader wearing a knowing smirk. Oh! The alcohol fuelled mayhem unleashed as the revellers return from the lunchtime session at ‘The Firkin Handy’ when passions that have simmered furtively for 364 days are given free reign as the photocopier is used in a wholly inappropriate manner and items are filed in places that will later result in messy litigation. Only once did I succumb to carnal enticement when, diminished by an excess of snowballs, I accepted the offer of a lift home from a girl in the typing pool. This was on account of a heavily bandaged leg, following a recent football injury, where I had swerved violently inside an opponent but due to a congenital lack of muscle mass my left knee had opted to push on down the wing. If you have read one of my earlier pieces detailing my seduction technique on Brighton beach you would not be surprised to learn that as we entered my house I tripped over the doormat and whether semi concussed or mentally exhausted from the work I had put in on the drive home working up the debauchery flow chart I promptly passed out.

Lighten Up your life Winter’s dark evenings are drawing in - the ideal time to bring new light into our homes and dress them with what designers regard as essential ‘jewellery’ for interiors. Gabrielle Fagan finds some illuminating answers for rooms, from chandeliers to table lamps. It’s all too easy to be baffled by lighting, because the choice today is dazzling. Faced with spotlights, downlighters, uplighters, lamps and chandeliers, not to mention all the advancing technology in light bulbs, it’s enough to make you retire to a darkened room and forget the whole business. But that would be a big mistake because lighting has enormous power to transform rooms and alter atmosphere and mood. A sensitive lighting system can go a long way to redress spatial limitations - by tricking the eye into thinking there’s more room than there actually is. “Too many people treat lighting as an afterthought, or place it a long way down the list of priorities,” says Peter Bowles, managing director of Davey Lighting. “Ideally, lighting should be considered at the planning stage of a renovation or new build. You need to look at each area of your home at different times of the day so you can see where the natural light falls and its quality. “Then you can also pinpoint any areas which are underlit by both natural or artificial light. Once you’ve assessed that, you’re in a good position to make a lighting plan and finally move on to choosing decorative fittings.” Many designers regard lighting as the equivalent of jewellery for rooms and this season there’s a wealth of styles to choose from, with the strongest trends emerging as metallics in copper and brass, in colour and in industrial or retro style. “A combination of general, task and accent lighting will ensure your home works on all light levels. Invest in good design with quality materials and sleek styling and it will stand the test of time,” says Bowles. Winter’s long dark nights and early evenings leave us craving well-lit, welcoming spaces, so follow the room-by-room guide to lighting up your life.

LIGHT & LOUNGING Living rooms are often multi-functional spaces which require a variety of lighting to suit different activities at varying times of the day. “Lighting not only performs a function but is a key element in creating the right mood in any living space,” says Andrea Warburton, lighting buyer at The Conran Shop. “In order to choose the right lighting, it’s important to focus on its purpose first: for instance, whether it is to diffuse light across a whole room, to be bright enough to read under, or to zone a space. “Consider materials, colour and style next and look to other elements in the room for inspiration. Match the colour or material of the lamp to another item in the room for example.” Tip: Pendants hung over sofas will create a dramatic seating zone in a room. STAR LIGHTS For elegant, contemporary style it’s hard to beat an Elsa six-arm ceiling light, £180, or a slender Lily floor lamp with five curved stems branching outwards, £190, and matching table lamp, £75, all John Lewis. Scandi appeal endures and John Lewis’s Secto Victo pendant ceiling lights, from £650, made from laminated birch slats, are classics. For a truly different light it’s hard to beat the Favourite Things Suspension Lamp Cloud, £295, The Conran Shop, which allows objects to be displayed and illuminated in a clear bowl beneath the fitting. A tight budget needn’t prevent you putting on a light show. Turn on to chic supermarket style with Sainsbury’s Tu Sebastian black glass table lamp, £35, and Tu Smedley Wooden Tripod with grey or cream shade, £40. Use Marks & Spencer’s brilliant value Iconic floor lamp, £99, available in selected stores, to highlight a room feature or statement piece of furniture.

Kitchens require lighting to work hard so it’s bright and focused in preparation and cooking areas but intimate in eating and dining zones. “To light work surfaces, practical space-saving wall lights make a great alternative to under-cabinet lights, and bring a more quirky, individual look,” says Peter Bowles. “Interesting fittings will stop your kitchen looking overly clinical. Match the style of your light fittings to your room. Prismatic glass and bone china work wonderfully in country-style kitchens, metallic pendants give an industrial flavour, and brightly painted pendants bring an often-needed pop of colour.” Tip: Look for flexible lights which can be angled and adjusted to effectively control direction or spread of light. Star lights: Complement industrial style with a Diner 125 pendant, £658, with its weathered brass and glass oblong shade and four bulbs, or opt for a School light, £358, in polished copper with a white interior, both Davey Lighting. NIGHT NIGHT LIGHTS Bedrooms benefit as much as any room from versatile lighting which is bright and appropriate for dressing, but can be soft and intimate to conjure a soothing, sensual space. “This room should never have one light source,” says Bowles. “Overhead lighting and task lighting will ensure the room feels welcoming and the light flatters the occupants and the room. Dimmer switches are essential.” Tip: In small bedrooms use wall rather than table lights to avoid cluttering surfaces. To create a relaxed mood, consider lighting hidden behind cornices and bookshelves or illuminate bed plinths and headboards. Star lights: Chandeliers and light-reflecting glass pendants add glamour. A Chelsea three-tiered pendant with layers of leaf design glass pieces, £175, and Hayworth cluster ceiling pendant, £250, featuring glass vintage-style decanters, both Laura Ashley. Dunelm Mill offers affordable style including a five-arm Romance chandelier style-light, or a modern Spiky Ball four-light halogen ceiling fitting, both £59.99. For a similar look, Marks & Spencer’s Oval Diner three-light table lamp, £79, glitters with glass droplets. Available from selected stores. Betta Living offers lighting systems for headboard or plinth lighting. Prices starts from £39.99 for a round LED kit including four lights.

MARTIN FREEMAN BILBO BAGGINS

Playing Bilbo Baggins in The Hobbit is the biggest role of Martin Freeman’s career but he’s not looking forward to the inevitable exposure that it will bring him, as he tells House.

Martin Freeman is on the cusp of major league movie stardom, so you’d imagine he’d be feeling on top of the world about his good fortune. Not a bit of it. The actor has been in the public eye in Britain for more than 10 years, and he laments: “People have been annoying me in restaurants for a long time, and now it’ll just be all over the world. Yippee.”

Freeman, who shot to prominence as Tim in Ricky Gervais’s The Office, might not be embracing the fame game but he’s going to have to get used to it - and sharpish - with the imminent release of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey in which he has the starring role of Bilbo Baggins. Based on the 1937 fantasy novel by J.R.R Tolkien, it’s been painstakingly brought to life by the visionary director Peter Jackson. “I’m getting a glimpse of that external reaction to it now, the nearer the film gets to release,” says Freeman, a youthful-looking 41-yearold. “I mean that level of fame obviously is something very different to what most people will get to experience, but my life doesn’t feel any different yet.”

Wearing a blue polo shirt and a black suit, Freeman comes across as friendly and thoughtful, if a little caustic at times. That could simply be his sense of humour or perhaps a protective reflex given that he describes himself as “a very, very private person”. So private that he doesn’t want to confirm how many children he has (a Google search reveals he has a son and daughter with his long-term partner Amanda Abbington). What he will say is that he that doesn’t want his kids to see him as anything other than their dad. “I want to keep my children absolutely out of it until they’re of an age where they can decide,” 230

he says. “Sometimes when I’m stopped in the street and I’m with my children, I always try and get them out of the picture and they’ll go, ‘Why don’t you want us?’ and I’m like, ‘No, I’m protecting you!’”

You can understand he may be a little defensive, given that The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is just the first of three films from the team behind The Lord Of The Rings trilogy. The following movies, The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug and The Hobbit: There And Back Again, will be released in 2013 and 2014 respectively. Set in the fantastical Middle-earth, the tale begins 60 years before the events of The Lord Of The Rings, and sees a young Bilbo Baggins swept into an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor from the fearsome Dragon Smaug (voiced by Freeman’s Sherlock co-star Benedict Cumberbatch). New and old faces pop up along the way. Andy Serkis returns as Gollum, while Sir Ian McKellen reprises his role as wizard Gandalf the Grey, who appears out of the blue to task Bilbo with his audacious plan. They’re soon joined by a band of 13 Dwarves led by the legendary Thorin Oakenshield (Spooks star Richard Armitage) and a host of other new faces. Together the eclectic group embarks on a journey that takes them from the comfortable safety of Hobbiton into the great unknown, through treacherous lands swarming with Goblins, Orcs and deadly Wargs. It’s the stuff of every child’s fantasy but Freeman admits he only read the novel two years ago. “I just didn’t grow up with it. I’m a fan now and see what it’s about but it just wasn’t in my universe then,” says the Hampshire-born actor.

Since The Office, Freeman has appeared in a host of British films such as Love Actually, Nativity!, Shaun Of The Dead and Hot Fuzz. He also recently earned an Emmy and Bafta TV

nomination for his role as Dr John Watson in Sherlock but he was far from a global ‘name’ when Peter Jackson cast him in the lead role. That didn’t deter the director, who was so determined to hire Freeman that he rearranged the shooting schedule to allow the actor to leave the film set in New Zealand to film Sherlock in the UK. “I was truly shocked and pleased because I really wanted to play Bilbo, and that’s not the kind of offer that comes back,” says Freeman. “It showed they had such faith in me. They must have seen something in me that could play worry but with humour.”

For that reason, Freeman says he didn’t feel too stressed in tackling such an iconic role. “I didn’t feel any pressure is the honest truth,” he says. “At least I didn’t feel Bilbo pressure but I felt the pressure that I always feel in that I want to be good.” Describing his Hobbit alter ego, Freeman says: “The things that struck me about him suggested a certain timidity in many situations, a certain hesitancy in life, because his world is his home and Hobbiton and beyond that’s a bit scary.”

In his own life, the actor says he’s not particularly adventurous. “Well, depending on the adventure. I mean I wouldn’t go into life and death [situations] really but nor would anyone unless you’re a moron,” he says. “But I’m an actor and I’ve chosen a life where there’s no security, where there’s no wages, no pension - so for a start that’s braver than those who go to work at the bank in my opinion.”

Freeman says the role was physically demanding from the beginning, not least because he had to cope with the flipper-like Hobbit feet.


“I won’t miss them,” he says. “I’d have to shave my legs, talcum powder them, then they’d put an inner sole on and put this latex leg and foot over it. It was a two-person job and took about a week to get used to.”

Given that the three movies were shot back-to-back over an epic 18 months, Freeman felt it was important to remain as fit as possible. “Obviously Bilbo’s not a superhero so I wasn’t bench-pressing 200 pounds every hour, but you do as an actor have to be healthy and ready,” he says. And in that time he only returned twice to his home in London. “It didn’t take long to get away from the role but after that experience of being away, it’s like decompression,” he says. “You’re away for so long in a completely different world figuratively and literally, you come back to your world and your home and it takes a while [to return to normality.]”

Ever grounded, he remains pragmatic about the future. “I try not to expect anything because there is no guarantee of anything at all,” he says. “I’ve been told before, ‘Your life’s going to change after this comes out’. No it didn’t, it didn’t change. “Obviously this is a huge film but any premature expectation or patting on the back is a very dangerous thing to do because it can only come with disappointment.”

ASK THE PROPERTY EXPERT

GAS SAFETY CERTIFICATES – CHECK IT NOW!! A family in Catford, East London are lucky to be alive after inhaling carbon monoxide. The family, a couple and eight year old daughter narrowly escaped death when their boiler leaked the deadly gas as they slept. The alarm was raised when a neighbouring flat that had a carbon monoxide alarm fitted went off and the fire brigade insisted on evacuating the block. The family were found and then hospitalised due to the large quantity of the lethal gas inhaled. It was established the boiler had not had a Gas Safety Certificate issued for 2 years. The family were very lucky their neighbour had an alarm fitted. The landlord pleaded guilty at Westminster Court and was sentenced to six months in prison, suspended for two years, ordered to carry out 200 hours of community service and pay £8211 in costs! It is a legal requirement for a landlord to have a yearly Gas Safety check and certificate issued on any rental property, rented room or even if you are a family with overseas students. What causes it?

Carbon monoxide (CO) is a colourless, odourless, tasteless, poisonous gas and a product of incomplete combustion of natural or petroleum gas. Inhaling the gas reduces the blood’s ability to carry oxygen, leaving the body’s organs and cells starved of oxygen. In the UK, about 50 people die each year in their homes from accidental carbon monoxide poisoning. What are the symptoms?

The symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning may be non-specific and similar to those of a viral cold and flu infections or food poisoning: headache, nausea, abdominal pain, dizziness, sore throat and dry cough. But, unlike flu infection, carbon monoxide poisoning doesn’t cause a high temperature. In children, the symptoms are similar to those of a stomach upset, with nausea and vomiting. More severe poisoning can result in a fast and irregular heart rate, hyperventilation, confusion, drowsiness and difficulty breathing. Seizures and loss of consciousness may also occur. Forewarned is always forearmed, so landlords and tenants, check your certificates and ensure they are in date and be safe.

It’s a good time to be a landlord...

LE T

Demand for rental properties is at an all time high, rental values continue to increase and void periods are almost non existent. All great news and now that property prices appear to have stabilised and most mortgage companies require deposits well in excess of annual salaries this trend looks certain to continue. Of course letting agents may tell you otherwise - that a large amount of work goes into finding a suitable tenant. But the truth is, with the current level of demand, finding a tenant has never been easier. It’s certainly easier than finding suitable buyers homes. Online portals, such as Rightmove, have made the tenant finding game as easy as taking candy from a baby.

LE

T

MUDEFORD £950 PCM

MUSCLIFFE £800 PCM

So any landlord who has stumped up a month’s rent for a tenant-finding service through a high street letting agent, has, quite frankly, been ripped off. What the landlord is actually paying for is the high street agent’s overheads – the lease on their shop, the high tech screens and window displays, the expensive company cars. And don’t get me started on renewal clauses within contracts which some agents include so they can charge landlords another fee if the existing tenants renew their contracts. To charge an additional fee for doing no extra work is incredibly sneaky, and reflects badly on the already fragile reputation of the lettings industry.

LE

T

Agents not located on the high street are able to slash their fees considerably because they do not have the same level of overheads. And not having an office on the high street certainly doesn’t compromise the level of customer service. We’ve already established that most enquiries are received via web portals and a lot of online agents are contactable round the clock as opposed to traditional 9-5 opening hours of a high street agent meaning response times can be much quicker often vital when dealing with maintenance issues. SOUTHBOURNE £800 PCM

Bristol & West House, Post Office Road, Bournemouth BH1 1BL S3557

In fact, almost 85% of our applicant enquires come through Rightmove alone.

My firm charges landlords a transparent, low cost letting fee of £250.00 + VAT for finding tenants. This is typically less than half the cost of most high street agencies. For those landlords who want a management service we offer the same facilities as high street agents; rent collection, property visits, organising maintenance repairs for just 7.5% + VAT and we include rent guarantee insurance providing landlords’ complete peace of mind.

Local Carpet cleaners We have chosen a selection of local Carpet cleaning specialists for you.

Our carpets play an important role in maintaining a healthier indoor environment. Carpet cleaning has a reputation of being a luxury more than a necessity. Without proper care your carpet becomes a health liability. This is something most people don’t stop to consider before deleting the message to call and schedule their yearly professional carpet cleaner’s visit. One potential health risk involved with improperly cared for carpet is asthma. Asthma is caused by many outside influences. One such influence is unclean, damp carpet. This environment plays the perfect host to tiny organism and microbial growth. In turn these minuet creatures increase the risk of asthma in patients living in such environments. To save you the trouble of searching for a reliable reccommeded carpet cleaner, we bring you the highest rated local carpet cleaners to choose from.

BOTOX…… SSSHHHH! House magazine Congratulate Austin Brewer for being a successful practitioner for 10 years. We find out how the industry has evolved and what we should be looking out for. Ok so we’ve all heard the word botox used, whether it’s when reading the paper with your morning coffee (another celeb, another disaster?!), in a glossy on your lunch break or by overhearing the women in the changing room next to you. But how much do you really know? did you know for instance that botox has been used medically since the 70’s? or that it can be used for people who suffer with excessive sweating (Hyperhidrosis)? A number of years ago botox was taboo, nobody spoke of it and would certainly never admit to having any sort of treatment to eradicate their unwanted lines and wrinkles. Now, however, it has become much more widely available and almost the norm! this does of course present it’s own problems, people are becoming too relaxed about who they let near their face. After speaking to numerous people over the years, I must admit I’ve heard from both sides of the fence. Time I thought, to get some facts and who better to ask than Dorset’s only IHAS registered practitioner Austin Brewer. As Austin Brewer approaches his 10th year as a popular south coast facial aesthetic practitioner, he’s very keen to make sure people know the good, the bad and the ugly! about botox.

So, Austin congratulations on 10 years as a successful practitioner ab: Thank you I feel like it was only yesterday that I started my private practice - and of course I don’t look a day older!

Does that mean that you have treatments yourself?

ab: Of course! - the main reason I try all treatments myself is so I know that i’m offering my clients the very best that is available

How have you seen the industry evolve in the last 10 years? ab: It has changed dramatically, but it’s only recently that things are starting to really improve in regard to regulation of the industry, I hear far too many horror stories from clients that are coming to me every week about sub standard treatments, sometimes by inadequately trained clinicians in my area and also up and down the country.

That sounds terrible - what should we all be looking out for? ab: Just make sure you check them out properly, I am Dorset’s only practitioner that is on the Treatments You Can Trust (TYCT) website - it’s a government backed initiative from the Independent Healthcare Advisory Service (IHAS) it ensures the public’s safety is top priority when looking for a practitioner in their area.

What’s the best advice that you could give someone? ab: To be honest there is so much information, the best piece of advice I could give would be to book a consultation with me, it’s free! Your face is important to you, you probably spend hundreds on it each year, but how many of you have ever sat down and discussed exactly how you should be treating your skin and what would work for you. It amazes me that we don’t do this, we either use products because our friends or family

use them or believe that because it’s expensive it has to work, this is not the case, if it’s not right for your skin type it could damage your skin. Nearly all of the clients who come for a free consultation with me, end up amazed that the skin care regime they change to, in most cases is cheaper than the one they had before! and they are finally getting the results that they want to see.

Are there any treatments that you wouldn’t do? ab: All of them, if I thought my clients were not going to benefit from them. I turn away 3-4 clients a week, either because I don’t think they need anything yet or it’s not a treatment that would make any improvement to their looks. Many times I send them to my competitors because I am not prepared to do what they ask for, for example over treated, ridiculously sized lips! It’s not what my practice is about. I ultimately care what my clients look like, it’s not always about the profit - which unfortunately seems to be a view not many practitioners share with me, they just want to make as much money out of an individual without any regard to how they end up looking, not acceptable as far as i’m concerned. It’s up to us, as practitioners to put the reigns on the industry - it’s wrong to leave it up to our clients, we have a responsibility to them to offer our professional guidance and advice and to ensure their wellbeing at all times.

Any last words? ab: It’s your face and you wear it everyday make sure it’s in safe hands! 251

If you’re stumbling in from the dance floor, a rigorous skincare regime is going to be the last thing on your agenda - so prepare a speed cleanse kit for your return. It’s not ideal to use wipes on a daily basis but they’re convenient after a night on the tiles to wipe away make-up and grime swiftly. You can even use them while tucked up in bed.

Just when your skin gets zapped by the onset of winter weather, it faces another cruel hit with the arrival of the party season. All that drinking, dancing and pillow deprivation is a wicked concoction guaranteed to ensure you look one fine mess when the alarm clock calls. That’s all well and good when it’s the weekend and you can hide under the duvet, but during the week that sallow, green-tinged skin needs to be brought back to life - and sharpish. The good news is that you can fake a fresh glow so your boss doesn’t clock on to your party animal ways. Invest in some hangover heroics and have a ball minus the morning-after beauty scares.

PRE-BASH BEAUTY If invites are mounting on the mantelpiece, take action now to avoid the inevitable partied-out complexion. Prevention is better than cure, so if you’re prone to spot outbreaks and lacklustre skin once the party season ramps up, start nourishing your face from the inside out now. “To avoid seasonal breakouts, Omega-3 is essential for making the body less inflammatory. As well as eating oily fish, consider a supplement of fish oils,” recommends Jo Givens, treatments expert at Liz Earle.

POST-PARTY SOS Complexions need a radiance boost from the moment you wake from your hung-over slumber. “Other than make-up, a simple tip for brightening up morning-after skin is to simply massage the face using your fingers,” suggests Dr Ariel Haus, Harley Street dermatologist. “Apply your moisturiser in firm circular motions to bring the blood to the surface, leaving you with a rosy glow. Exfoliating is also great as it rids skin of dead skin cells and removes excess grease - a common symptom of excess.”

THE OXYGEN FACIAL

Well the cold winter chill has well and truly set in. It’s that time of year when our thoughts are with mulled wine, open fires and a bit of festive spirit. But how does this cold weather affect our skin and bodies? Central heating has a drying effect on us all, cold early mornings can lead to sore dry skin, too much alcohol (and let’s face it no one drinks enough water at this time of year as a hot strong coffee is far more tempting)can leave us parched!

So what can we do to maintain a dewy complexion and a healthy body at this time of yea? Here are my top 3 December must haves…….remember to put them on your Christmas wish list!

Adding oxygen to your facial treatment will soothe and refresh your skin naturally. Oxygen is essential to the health and maintenance of skin cells in the human body. With age, skin loses its ability to retain and utilize Oxygen for normal metabolic processes, such as repair and regeneration. When oxygen is lacking at the cellular level, our skin begins to age—sometimes prematurely. Facials with Oxygen help nourish and rejuvenate dull skin. Also as we age, oxygen does not reach our skin cells as efficiently, which is what leads to the aging process. The result can be thinner skin and the appearance of wrinkles and age spots. Oxygen facial will replenish the amount of oxygen that the skin receives, leaving it hydrated, plumper and younger looking. I hour treatment £38.00

DERMALOGICA MULTIVITAMIN POWER RECOVERY MASQUE

This soothing microwaveable wrap is great for muscular aches and pains of just as a cosy warmer on cold winter evenings. Chic Price £9.99. Available in pink, blue and green in store now.

An ultra-replenishing, antioxidant rich masque that helps rescue stressed, aging skin. Apply after cleansing as a revitalizing remedy for dulling, dry, dehydrated, lacklustre, photo damaged skin. Botanicals help soothe and calm stressed skin while vitamins A, C and E help repair damaged, aging skin. Apply to your skin for at least 15minutes twice a week to see fantastic results! RRP £33.50

MOTORING NEWS

MCLAREN GT CONFIRMS LIMITED EDITION

The latest news on all things motoring By Nick Fletcher

NEW TOYOTA AURIS DEBUT Topyota has announced details of its new Auris model which goes on sale in the UK at the end of this year, priced from £14,495. Auris has an allnew look. At the front it displays the new family “face” of Toyota, with lines and detailing such as the new headlight units, that emphasise the car’s width and low, road-hugging stance. It sits lower to the ground than its predecessor, with a ride height 10mm lower. The profile is stronger, too, with a steeply-raked windscreen and extension of the side glazing further towards the rear and a pronounced rising belt line. New Auris is 30mm longer than the outgoing model, but with its overall height brought down by 55mm it remains one of the most compact models in its class. Although Auris’s basic suspension geometry is unchanged, both front and rear systems have undergone revision and fine tuning to deliver a better balance of driver feedback, responsiveness and ride comfort. The electric power steering has also been improved with a quicker steering ratio. Emissions and fuel economy. New Auris marks a significant drop in the model’s average CO2 emissions, the figure falling 13 per cent compared to the previous

model, to just 109g/km for the European model range. The Auris Active 1.4 D-4D returns combined fuel consumption of 74.3mpg and generates 99g/km – an improvement of 15.4mpg and 29g/km compared to the current Auris diesel (which does not use Stop & Start technology). This brings the diesel Auris below the UK’s 100g/km benchmark for zero annual road tax (VED) and exclusion from the London Congestion Charge, with further beneficial tax ratings for company car users and operators. The 1.33 Dual VVT-I petrol and 1.4 D-4D diesel engines come as standard with Toyota’s Stop & Start system, which helps cut fuel consumption and CO2 emissions, particularly in around-town driving. Auris introduces a new Toyota grade structure in the UK. This starts with the entry-level Active trim, and progresses through Icon and Sport to the top-of-the range Excel. The 1.33 Dual VVT-i engine is available in Active and Icon grades; the 1.6 Valvematic in Icon, Sport and Excel; and the 1.4 D-4D in all trims. Auris Hybrid is offered in Icon and Excel versions.

UK SALES RECORD FOR MERCEDES Mercedes-Benz has posted a record performance in September, led by the C-Class ranking as the sixth-best selling car in the UK for the month. This was mirrored by a record 4.6 per cent mark share for the month and 4.4 per cent for the yearto-date. New records were set by the C-Class Saloon (4,654 registrations), the C-Class Estate (1,425) and the C-Class Coupé (1,869).Roadsters continued to prove popular – the SLK was the highest performer, with 1,268 registrations to lead its market segment. Elsewhere in the range the new B-Class enjoyed its highest registration figures ever at 1,415 vehicles to cap a record year-to-date figure of 5,165 examples. AMG continued a strong year with a 122.8 per cent rise reported for the month and a 141.2 per

cent gain for the year-to-date. Commercial vehicle sales were also significantly up – with a 28.5 per cent gain overall for September. The Vito and Sprinter vans each posted very strong percentage gains – contributing to an overall rise for the range of 18.5 per cent year-to-date and the best monthly results yet recorded with 4,478 vans registered. Marcus Breitschwerdt, President and CEO of Mercedes-Benz UK said: ‘The diversity of the gains across the range suggests that Mercedes-Benz is extremely well placed in the market with the right products at the right time. These record results come as we’re yet to launch the exciting new A-Class into the market – which is extremely heartening and bodes well for the future.’

McLaren GT has confirmed plans for a limited production run of the track-focused 12C GT Can-Am Edition. It will cost £375,000. The limited edition track-special pays tribute to Bruce McLaren and Denny Hulme who successfully raced a series of McLaren models in the Can-Am series, claiming a string of championships between them for Bruce McLaren Racing. McLaren GT, the race car manufacturing arm of the McLaren Group, will produce no more than 30 examples of the 12C GT Can-Am Edition. Billed as the ‘ultimate track car’, these will not be subject to the

THE LIMITED EDITION TRACK-SPECIAL PAYS TRIBUTE TO BRUCE MCLAREN AND DENNY HULME usual racing regulations of the successful 12C GT3 racer on which it is based. Each will be fitted with an unrestricted version of the familiar 3.8-litre twin-turbo V8 engine with a unique engine calibration, and optimised cooling system to increase the power output of up to 630hp, making the 12C GT Can-Am Edition the most powerful 12C produced to date. The dramatic appearance of the 12C GT Can-Am Edition is dominated by the large carbon fibre rear wing. This forms part of a unique high downforce aerodynamic package which has been honed by McLaren Racing using Formula 1 technology and simulation, and offers an increase in downforce by 30 per cent.

Review INDI’S Since Opening in September 2002 Indi’s has built an outstanding reputation for fine dining and exemplary service. Having heard all the fabulous reviews from friends and collegues, we decided to check it out ourselves. On arrival we were greeted by CJ, who helped us through the menu. I am used to the traditional little silver bowls of curry on a hot plate, which straight away I realised was not Indi’s style. CJ suggested the Aromatic Crab Cakes and the Fresh garlic scallops. Both were just delicious, the crab cakes are the chefs own recipe, and the scallops were cooked perfectly. I knew straight away we were in for a real treat when it can to the main courses. We had decided to be a bit different on our main course selection. I pretty much always have Chicken Tikka masala or a Korma curry every time I have an Indian meal. So this seemed like the perfect time to test the water with something a bit different. We selected the Chicken de

Westbourne Kiki, I had never come across this dish before, Chicken marinated in mild spices with goats cheese. This was my favourite dish of the evening. The chicken was perfectly cooked and seasoned beautifully. We also had the Tandori Langoustine, equally as delicious, and I am now a convert to having seafood with Indian spices. We had very little room for pudding, and to be perfectly honest my experience of puddings in Indian restaurants has been dissapointing up to now. I am sure we have all had the frozen chocolate bomb and orange sorbet in an actual orange and have regreeted it. However CJ surprised us with a gorgeous Pistacio Parfait. The perfect end to our meal. The team at Indi’s go out of their way to ensure your meal is a truly enjoyable experience, while the highly experienced chefs, using only the freshest ingredients will certainly leave you wanting more. The Chef even selected a wine for us which would compliment

our menu choices. Unlike many Indian restaurants, at Indi’s they pride themselves on having an individual curry paste for each of their dishes. In making the effort to do this they achieve a hugely diverse range of exciting flavours across their menus. The Chefs at Indi’s are committed to producing consistently outstanding Indian cuisine. Using the freshest ingredients, they also offer a selection of dishes unique to Indi’s as well the usual selection of traditional favourites. Many discerning diners return time and time again to experience Indi’s superb food and wonderful hospitality, while first time guests will feel as if they are among friends in an exclusive club!

Here are some of the top turkeys - and some festive alternatives

Waitrose

TURKEY TALK

268

It’s the unrivalled king of the Christmas feast, but it’s not always the easiest bird to handle. These days, few meats would look out of place as the centrepiece of your Christmas dinner. Some people swear by a traditional goose, others are game for venison, while Marks & Spencer predicts chicken to be big this festive season. But the vast majority of us still gobble up turkey on December 25. Chef Rachel Allen says: “A few years ago we decided to cook the most gorgeous bit of beef. We had it with horseradish, bearnaise and amazing roast potatoes. It was delicious, but it didn’t taste like Christmas. For me, it’s got to be turkey.” With a variety of types, retailers and prices available, it can be tricky knowing which bird go for. For Allen, supporting local producers is key. “We get turkeys from a local farm. Personally, I believe in paying the extra to getting a really good quality one and I’ll use every single bit of it. Last year we had a bronze turkey - it’s lovely and moist.” Generally, bronze and black varieties of turkey have a gamier flavour and a denser texture, but a British Turkey Quality Mark indicates good standards of food safety, traceability and bird welfare. Size is also important to consider, in terms of how many people you’re feeding and how big your oven is. Asda turkey expert Jim Viggers says: “A 2.5kg turkey, for example, would feed a family of four and you could have turkey sandwiches in the afternoon. A 4kg turkey would feed seven to

eight people again with plenty of leftovers, so decide what you want to do with the bird first.” But according to the British Turkey Information Service, the most common mistake people make with turkey is overcooking it. A spokeswoman advises: “Work out the cooking times well ahead of Christmas Day. To check it’s cooked, insert a clean skewer in the thickest part of the thigh. Leave for at least one minute and if the juices run clear the turkey is cooked.” Cooking tips from the top Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall: “Because the legs are tougher, ask a butcher to take them off and then cook them separately. Find a great recipe for coq au vin and cook them slowly in wine and onion and bit of bacon. Then you can concentrate on cooking the breast quickly and keeping it moist.” Nadia Sawalha: “Because it’s just once a year, I put an entire packet of butter over my turkey and baste it every 20 minutes and it’s always really lush. And I put streaky bacon on the breast and take it off towards the end.” Rachel Allen: “Cook it for the first hour breast side down and then turn it over and cook it breast side up for the remaining time. That way the juices soak down into the breast so it will be moist. But with a really good turkey you don’t even need to do that.”

Recipe

SERVES 4

CLASSIC SAGE AND ONION STUFFING INGREDIENTS 25g butter 1 large onion, finely chopped 10 chopped fresh sage leaves, from a pot of living sage 200g fresh while breadcrumbs ½tsp coarse ground black pepper 150ml chicken stock Preheat the oven to 200°C.

METHOD Melt the butter in a frying pan and fry the onion and sage for 5 minutes. Add the breadcrumbs and pepper and cook for 2-3 minutes. Stir in the stock and season to taste. Press into an ovenproof serving dish and bake for 20 minutes until golden on top. Alternatively roll into 8 balls and place on a baking tray and cook for 10-15 minutes. Tip: add plenty of fresh lemon zest and try brioche crumbs instead of bread, to give a lovely light stuffing.

Recipe SERVES 6-8

SLOW-COOKED SHOULDER OF LAMB INGREDIENTS 1.5kg potatoes, medium sized, peeled 12 shallots, peeled 900g parsnips, medium sized, peeled 200g pancetta, roughly chopped 2tbsp plain flour

6 whole bay leaves

1tbsp fresh thyme, chopped, plus a few sprigs

Sea salt and black pepper

6-8 tbsp rapeseed oil

Preheat oven to 200°C.

METHOD Cut large potatoes in half, and all the parsnips in half lengthways. Cook the potatoes in boiling salted water for 8 minutes or until par-boiled. Meanwhile, cook the parsnips in the same way in another pan for 4 minutes. Drain the potatoes well then return to the pan and cover, shake the pan to roughen the edges of the potatoes. Drain the parsnips and toss them in the flour, chopped thyme and seasoning. Pour the rapeseed oil into a large roasting tin and heat in the oven. You need around 1cm of oil in the tin. Add the potatoes and turn them over in the oil using a slotted spoon. Roast uncovered for 15-20 minutes, remove the tin from the oven and turn the potatoes, add the parsnips and shallots and turn them in the oil too. Roast for a further 35-40 minutes then turn all of the vegetables again, add the pancetta. Increase the heat to 220°C for a further 15-20 minutes, adding the thyme sprigs and bay leaves for the final 10 minutes. Sprinkle with a little sea salt and black pepper and serve immediately.
