RETURN OF THE MACK - AND THIS TIME HE’S ON JACK! Graham Mack has returned to the airwaves of Dorset, on JACK fm. Multiaward winning Graham joins 106 JACK fm, the station that boasts “Playing What We Want”, on Sunday. This is Graham’s big return to the South Coast airwaves. He’ll be hosting a live interactive show, with his tongue placed firmly in his cheek. Graham will be very familiar to listeners in Dorset as the former breakfast host of 2CR fm for two stints in the nineties and noughties. “I’m looking forward to waking people up in my old stomping ground once again and delighted that JACK fm is my new home – even if they won’t let me play what I want!” JACK fm’s Programme Manager Steve Simms said “we’re really excited that Graham’s joining our gang. Although with Bam Bam and Graham Mack in the same building, we’re all going to have our work cut out!” Hear Graham Mack on 106.6 JACK fm every Sunday between 8 a.m. and 12 p.m from Sunday the 17th of March.

THE YURTS ARE COMING! Emma Bevan and Lisa Howarth met on the school run several years ago and realised they were both looking for an alternative playhouse for their small children. One that looked beautiful in the garden but ideally could also be enjoyed and appreciated by all members of the family. Following an introduction to a Mongolian family-run Yurt business they realised that these fantastic structures

could be used as playhouses whilst the larger ones could be used as event spaces and for glamping weekends. They have now been dealing with the same family business for over seven years. Offering a variety of Yurts from 2 metres in diameter upwards. Each Yurt is a sturdy, warm and weather proof, natural construction, beautifully hand-painted in traditional Mongolian style by skilled

craftsmen. Lisa says “Demand for these enchanting Yurts has taken us by storm. We have, unsurprisingly, been incredibly popular with ‘glampers’, but have also sold to Alternative Therapists, Event Organisers and we even caused a stir at the Wimborne Food Festival, where one of our yurts was used for the childrens’ face painter.” “Our Yurts make an excellent addition to any gar-

den. We have ourselves hosted the most amazing parties, lit up by candlelight and everyone sitting around on big cushions- even in November! They make a great talking point and a superb feature, however you want to use it.” For more information about this please contact 07984 495336 or visit www.themongolianyurtcompany.com.

HOMES SELLING FAST AT SHERBORNE HOUSE GARDENS New exclusive luxury homes being built within the former walled garden of Sherborne House, Dorset are selling fast as work continues on the painstaking restoration of the grand 18th century house. Thirteen different house types have been designed by Redcliffe Homes on the 44-home development to create a new community within walking distance of Sherborne’s town centre with six already sold while building work continues. Lorraine Kendrick, Sales and Marketing Manager for Redcliffe Homes said: “The first homes are now occupied and a number of others are close to completion. There is a lot of interest especially as people can now see the quality of the houses being created which fit seamlessly into the local area. “Within the original listed walled garden of Sherborne House we have created Portman Place, which is almost complete and has a series of Bay Trees lining the street. Nearby, building work is also well underway creating Portland Square. “All visitors to our show home are welcome, where they can see the high

specifications that our homes include. “Once completed Sherborne House Gardens will be one of the finest addresses in the town. Close to the shopping facilities in and around Cheap Street it is still tucked away from the hustle and bustle and offers plenty of privacy for the residents.” Meanwhile experts from English Heritage are working with Redcliffe Homes on Sherborne House completing a comprehensive and sensitive restoration. An Art Café is also being created as a new facility for the town, alongside an art gallery within part of the original house. It is hoped that it will be used as the archive of the work of renowned sculptor and printmaker Dame Elizabeth Frink, who sadly died in Blandford Forum 10 years ago. The magnificent Thornhill Mural, which adorns the hallway of Sherborne House is being preserved and the plan is for it to be opened up for public viewing once work is completed on the house. Said Lorraine: “The whole project is aimed at making the house an asset for the town. The new homes are helping to finance the restoration so

that this magnificent building, which has a major place in Sherborne’s history, can be brought into use again. “Offices will provide workplaces on the upper floors, the homes will bring people and prosperity to the town centre and the café and art gallery will pro-

vide a new leisure activity for the town.” The remaining new homes for sale have three and four bedrooms and are exclusively and individually designed to a high specification with prices ranging from £425,000 to £499,950.

FINANCE

HALF OF PRE-RETIREES HAVE NO SAVINGS

WHAT OSBORNE DIDN’T SAY... Well, that wasn’t too bad, was it? Despite coming during the worst non-wartime economy Britain has ever seen, Chancellor George Osborne managed to offer new tax breaks to most lower and middle-income earners, invest in new housing, freeze fuel tax and even knock a penny of thecost of a pint of beer. Yes, the economic forecast has been halved, and yes, borrowing is still going up, but Osborne’s “aspiration nation” message suggested an optimism that we haven’t seen in a while. But it’s what Osborne didn’t say that really matters. Forget cheap beer and petrol, if things don’t get better at a fundamental level, we willall be feeling the pinch for many years to come. TRIPLE DIP The papers have been buzzing with the news that Osborne has rejected the idea of a triple-dip recession. Except he didn’t actually say this. Instead, in carefully chosen words, he quoted a report by the Office for Budgetary Responsibility (OBR), stating that “the OBR’s central forecast today is that we avoid a second quarter of negative growth here in 12

the UK.” In fact, a triple-dip recession is still very much a possibility. Earlier this month, the respected think-tank National Institute of Economic and Social Research estimated that the economy shrank by 0.1% in the three months to February and by 0.2% in the three months to January, suggesting that we’d need an exceptionally good March to avoid triple-dip status. While better-than-expected retail figures may go some way towards lifting the economy, other key economic indicators such as industry, unemployment, mortgage lending, construction and manufacturing have been less than encouraging.

Almost half (47%) of have nothing saved up for retirement, and expect to get by on state benefits.

ALTERNATIVE SAVINGS Another notable omission in the Budget was the lack of support for the ‘alternatives’ sector. This can mean anything from hedge funds, to private equity, to small or start-up companies. Since its launch in 1995, the Alternative Investment Market (AIM) has become the most successful growth market in the world, yet AIM stocks and shares are still excluded from the Stocks and Shares Isa remit, so the average saver can’t benefit from tax-free interest on some of the country’s top-performing stocks.

Investors seem to have picked up on this, staying off the London stock market on Budget day and causing the FTSE 100 to dip for the fourth day in a row.

While the Chancellor did abolish stamp duty from AIM investments, this represents a relatively small saving for the sort of sophisticated investors who were already trading actively on the market.

No one knows what would happen if we entered a triple-dip recession, simply because we’ve never experienced it before. If we do manage to avoid it this time, it will be by the smallest of margins, and the pressure will really be on to show we can do better.

The inclusion of AIM companies in Stocks and Shares ISAS is apparently being discussed, but for the majority of savers seeing their money eroded by the rising rate of inflation (currently 2.8%), any opportunity to see better returns cannot come along quickly enough.

Should you invest in... Construction? Optimists would argue that there is no time like a recession to pick up a bargain investment. Using this logic, the woeful construction sector should be viewed with interest. The stagnating property market at home and abroad has seen construction projects draw to a standstill. As a result, the UK construction industry lost 7.9% of its value over the 12 months to January, while in the eurozone, production rates fell to their lowest level since 1996 in January. The Chancellor is taking some steps to remedy the situation, by announcing a £15 billion investment in infrastructure in this week’s Budget, and a £130 billion ‘mortgage guarantee’ scheme to encourage people to buy new build properties. After the Budget, home-building firms rose on the FTSE All-Share Index,but commercial construction companies such as Balfour Beatty continued to falter. Investors looking to get access to the Government-sponsored property boom may prefer to focus on the housing sector, but for the more adventurous bargain-hunters, there is plenty to explore in the construction sector.

According to a new survey by JP Morgan Asset Management, only 21% expect to use their own investments as a source of post-retirement income, down from 41% in 2006. Meanwhile, 64% expect to use a pension in retirement, while a quarter intend to continue working part-time. On average, people believe they will retire on 37% of their final pre-retirement salary, but the average person is only savings 3% of their annual salary. Two thirds of adults have no idea how much they should have in their pension fund in order to generate an income of £25,000 a year.

ISA DEAL AT A WHOLE 2.5% Nationwide Building Society has increased its two-year fixedrate ISA to 2.5%, with a monthly option of 2.45% available. An account can be opened with £1 and transfers can be made from other cash ISAS. Early access to finds is available on closure of the account, subject to 180 days’ loss of interest. The account is only available in branches, to savers aged 16 and over.

Budget 2013: Millions get help to buy new homes, says George Osborne Millions of families will be offered Government help to buy homes without saving up a big deposit under a major scheme unveiled by The Chancellor of the Exchequer. The government's ÂŁ12bn scheme to help homebuyers by offering mortgage guarantees could also be used by homeowners to fund a second property. The mortgage guarantee is the next stage of the Help to Buy scheme unveiled in the chancellor's budget, and will shortly offer government backing on high loan-to-value (LTV) home loans. Under the plans, borrowers will be able to get access to 95% mortgages with the government guaranteeing a portion of the loan to reduce the mortgage lender's risk. Although designed to help those who are unable to raise a big enough deposit to finance a property without assistance, the small print of the scheme does not rule out all borrowers taking up the offer of a mortgage guarantee from the government.

TWO IMPORTANT LUXURY HOMES WITH FABULOUS HARBOUR VIEWS Westcoast Developments are pleased to announce the release of a flagship

development of two important luxury homes at 4/4a Brudenell Avenue, close to the shores of Poole Harbour. Brudenell Avenue has long been considered one of Poole’s most prestigious locations and in January 2011 it was named as Britain’s most expensive street outside of London and the South East in research by Lloyds TSB. No doubt, a major attraction for potential purchasers will be the fabulous harbour views on offer and the striking interior design of the show home compliments the contemporary architecture to best effect. The specification includes a programmable and intelligent lighting by Lutron as well as an audio /visual system with ceiling set speakers by AMX. Much thought has gone into the lighting design - which will incorporate highly efficient LED ceiling lights - with recessed mood lighting at ceiling and floor level and back lit pelmets.  The system will be controllable via an IPAD and it some instances it will be possible to remotely control the lighting from a laptop! The kitchen designs are simply superb and are by renowned specialists Bespoke Furniture Company, arguably the area’s most exclusive supplier.  Elegant marble worktops with breakfast bars sit atop stylish fitted units, a combination which offers the perfect blend of contemporary form and functionality.  The clean lines are also complemented by a full array of high quality integrated appliances by Miele and Sub-Zero ensuring that even the most serious chefs are catered for.  The master bedrooms suites (by Bespoke Furniture Company and Bathroom Elegance) have been conceived with the ultimate luxury in mind and feature walk in dressing rooms and sensational en-suite bathrooms which feature contemporary sanitary ware, bespoke fitted furniture and feature mirrors.  The principal living areas and master suites occupy the upper floor where the views of Poole Harbour are most expansive and wherever possible decks and terraces have been incorporated with a view to maximising outside space.  The living / dining rooms will feature fully bespoke bar areas with refrigeration – ideal for enjoying drinks with friends after a long day on the beach. Typically, home buyers moving to this area find themselves with increased demand from friends and family for guest accommodation and here they are catered for by way of the excellent guest bedrooms, all of which offer spacious accommodation and generous en-suites.

FINANCE

FRONTIER INVESTING

WHAT HOUSING CRISIS? Mortgage rates have never been lower, despite the fact that there is supposed to be a housing crisis in Britain at the moment. This week, Chelsea Building Society announced plans to launch a rock-bottom mortgage rate of 1.74%, for buyers with a 40% deposit to offer. This is set to usurp the Norwich & Peterborough 2.24% two-year fixed rate as the best deal on the market, but competition is fierce. HSBC has just rolled out its lowest ever five-year fixedrate mortgages, at 2.78%, and Virgin Money has just reduced prices on its residential mortgage range by 0.06%, meaning its two-year fixed-rate product is now available at just 2.28%.

This is a huge shift from just five years ago, when buyers would be hard pushed to find a fixed rate of less than 5%. Sylvia Waycot, editor at Moneyfacts.co.uk, says that over the past five years, the UK mortgage market has changed “beyond recognition”. As the financial crisis was about to hit in 2008, first-time-buyers hadthe advantage in the mortgage market, with 957 products available to people with a 10% deposit. But within a year, this had dropped dramatically to just 89 products, and today there are only 351 mortgages on the market for 90% LTV. By contrast, there are more than 500 mortgages available today

TOP FIVE MORTGAGE RATES

for people with a 40% deposit, up from 24 in March 2008. In January, remortgage lending rose to ¬£2.9 billion, up 6.2% on December’s £2.7 billion. In fact, according to the Council of Mortgage Lenders, remortgages now account for as much as 28% of gross mortgage lending. This is certainly good news for homeowners, but how do you access the best rates? There has probably never been a better time to remortgage, so even if you are midway through a competitive fixed-term deal, shop around and you may be surprised at the savings you can make.

1. Norwich & Peterborough BS 0808 252 5277 2.24% for 2 years 60% £295 Yes 2. HSBC 0800 077 4178 2.38% for term 60% £1499 Yes 3. HSBC 0800 077 4178 2.39% for 2 years 60% £499 Yes 4. Norwich & Peterborough BS 0808 252 5277 2.74% for 5 years 60% £295 Yes 5. Yorkshire BS 0808 252 3325 2.84% to 31.3.16 75% £495 Yes * Introductory rate for a limited period F Fixed

CHEAP MORTGAGES FOR CHEAP HOMES If you don't own your house, this may be the perfect time to enter the market. To access the best mortgage rates, you will need to have a decent deposit, but there are plenty of cheap homes available at the moment, particularly if you are handy with a toolkit! Last year a three-bedroom, semidetached house in Stockton claimed to be Britain's cheapest property when it went up for auction with a starting price of just £750. It sold for £14,000. According to property website Zoopla, there are hundreds of places being sold for £30,000 or less across the UK. You can buy a dilapidated Grade II-listed building in Har-

38

tlepool for just £10,000, or a two-bedroom chalet overlooking a lake in Lochgoilhead in Scotland. In Grimsby, a twobedroom flat is going under the hammer on March 14 for £10,000, and a £12,000 two-bed in Peterlee is being auctioned the same day. Meanwhile, in Belfast, there are several properties going to auction at £5,000. Outside of the auction houses (which usually insist on full cash purchases), there are a variety of cheap properties eligible for the most competitive mortgage rates. To take advantage of Chelsea Building Society's 1.74% rate on a £30,000 property, you would need a 40% deposit, or

£12,000, as well as the £1,695 product fee. On a 10-year mortgage deal, you would be making mortgage payments of just £152 per month, for the first two years at least. But if you want to capitalise on these low property prices and mortgage rates, you have to act soon. The latest Halifax Housing Price Index suggests that a slow recovery is under way, with house prices in the UK rising by 0.5% in February, and 1.9% over the year to date. The average house price in England and Wales is now £229,544, just 1% off its previous peak in February 2008. Meanwhile, if the Bank of England raises the 0.5% base rate or decides to employ quantitative easing, there will be

less of an incentive for banks to raise funds by competing on the mortgage market. With fixed mortgage rates hovering around the 2% mark on a regular basis, and homes available for as little as £5,000, surely the market can't get much cheaper?

Frontier investing has yet to hit the mainstream but the risk-aware investors with access to those markets have been well rewarded. The Russell Frontier ex-GCC Index had returned 8.83% yearto-date as of February 6, outperforming the Russell Emerging Markets Index by more than 9%. The ubiquitous MSCI Frontier Market Index had returned 10.72% over the three years to January 2012, but was down 18.73% for the final year of that period, typifying the inherent risk in this particular investment class. The world’s economies can generally be split into three categories: developed, emerging and frontier. While developed market equities were the byword for growth in the pre-crash years, emerging markets such as India and Brazil are the flavour of the month, due to their growing consumer populations and relative underexposure to the debt crises of developed economies such as the US. Given the success of these emerging markets, it is no surprise that investors are looking for the next big growth story: frontier markets. Each global index and institutional investor will have its own definition of what makes a frontier market and it is important to understand this definition from the outset, so that you are aware of your risk horizon. Russell Indexes, FTSE, MSCI and S&P Indices all agree that the following markets are “frontier”: Argentina, Bahrain, Bangladesh, Bulgaria, Croatia, Estonia, Jordan, Kenya, Lithuania, Mauritius, Nigeria, Oman, Qatar, Romania, Slovenia, Sri Lanka, Tunisia and Vietnam. As you can imagine, political volatility, financial transparency and economic opportunity varies in every one of those markets, so do your research and make sure you are convinced of the growth opportunities before committing money.

AMAZING PLACES It’s easy to see why the Caribbean islands are so popular: yearround sun, fun and rum on tap, golden palm-lined sands and warm turquoise seas.

ST JAMES RESORT, ANTIGUA The 100-acre secluded resort of St James’s is inspiring and magnificent. There are six pools for families to splash around in, including two adult-only areas and one exclusive for kids. But despite a recent 20-million dollar renovation of the facilities and the activities available, the real pull of St James’s will

always be its two stunning beaches - the millpond-like Mamora Bay complete with watersports centre, stalls and bars, and the breezier Coco’s Beach, looking out into the crystal-clear Atlantic Ocean. The food at many all-inclusives can tend to get a bit samey as the days drift by. However, at St James’s Club,

TRAVEL FACTS Kuoni offer seven nights on an all-inclusive basis at St James’s Club, Antigua, in a Club room, including flights with British Airways from London Gatwick with transfers in resort from £4,674 for a family of four. For reservations call 01306 747 008 or visit www.kuoni.co.uk. Overnight hotel and seven days’ parking at Sofitel Hotel at London Gatwick (www. sofitel.com) from £262.

all evening diners need a reservation (this can be easily booked at Guest Relations). In return, delicious fresh food is served in a traditional restaurant-style atmosphere from a menu, rather than as part of a plate-filling buffet. Breakfast at the Rainbow Garden includes a wide range of continental and cooked dishes, while on an evening, The Docksider is the place to be with steel bands regularly performing in the adjacent bar. There’s also a wonderful a la carte restaurant on resort - the elegant Piccolo

Mondo - where guests can sink their teeth into the local lobster and steak cooked by award-winning chefs. But even with a setting as perfect as St James’s, not everyone wants to spend their entire holiday on a resort, and there are many excursions available away from the complex. St James’s sister Elite Islands complex, The Verandah Resort and Spa is just a 20-minute drive away down Antigua’s east coast and is also well worth a trip with a range of pools, restaurants and beaches. 55

MACK’S CRAIC The JACK fm presenter talks about the things that drive him crazy in our everyday lifes

LANDLORDS

Why can’t people leave things alone? When something is working perfectly well, there are always people determined to mess with it. You used to be able to get a simple sandwich in this country but not now. There was a time when if you ordered a ham, chicken, cheese or tuna sandwich, that’s what you got. Not now though, now it comes with lettuce, watercress, tomato, onion, herbs and some kind of mystery “dressing”. Someone who thinks they know what you want better than you do, has decided when you said, “cheese”, you actually meant “salad” with a hint of grated cheese served on a type of bread you can’t pronounce covered with the seeds of a plant you’ve never heard of. You can’t even order something as basic as a glass of water any more. Now it comes with ice and lemon. I’ve managed to successfully drink water from a tap, bottle, water fountain and a hosepipe for years and never once been disappointed by the lack of ice and lemon. And don’t get me started on that dessert with a swirl they give you now instead of a cup of white coffee.

The same thing has happened to roundabouts. Once, they were the simplest of all intersections. All you had to do was give way to anyone who’s already on the roundabout, that’s all. Eventually some genius fresh out of planning school decided that some roundabouts should have traffic lights on them. To me, that just says, “OK, we give up, let’s see how you go with coloured lights”. A roundabout with traffic lights on it is the duck-billed platypus of intersection evolution. If that wasn’t confusing enough, now we have roundabouts with “Temporary traffic lights”. So now instead of just giving way to anyone who’s already on a roundabout, now you have to look out for traffic lights. If they’re there and they’re not working, you have to work out if they’re broken or just “temporary”. And you have to do all this while not being distracted by the massive, rusty ‘sculpture’ or giant running man made of chicken wire they’ve put in the middle of the roundabout! Yes, public ‘art’ on roundabouts; nobody wants it and nobody appreciates it but we’re all paying for it, just like that jungle of lawn clippings between two pieces of focaccia that arrives after you ordered a cheese sandwich.

ASK THE PROPERTY EXPERT LANDLORD UPDATE ON INSPECTION HATCHES FOR GAS SAFETY CERTIFICATES As of 1st January 2013, all rented properties that have a gas central heating boiler flue that has either been fitted hidden in the ceiling space or fitted away from an external wall must now be fitted with an inspection hatch. If your boiler is situated on an outside wall it is unlikely that you have this type of flue and if you can see the entire flue it will not affect you, your gas engineer will be able to tell you. All gas engineers must now be able to inspect the whole length of the flue, in line with industry guidance. If they are unable to fully inspect the flue it must be deemed at ‘At Risk’ (recommending to not use)and the engineer will ask for consent to turn it off. You are within your rights to refuse permission for it to be turned off; however you will be asked to sign paperwork to confirm you accept responsibility for those defects identified in the system – which would be the possible leak of carbon monoxide escaping unnoticed from the concealed flue into the property. You may be able to go back to the builder if it is less than two years and look to the home warrantee if less than 10 years. What it does mean is the gas engineer will not be able to provide a Gas Safety Certificate until an inspection hatch has been fitted and they have inspected the whole flue and as a landlord you must by law have a Gas Safety Certificate in place to rent a property out and this must be renewed every year. If you have any questions on this or other aspects on rental management then please contact Move On 01202 711169 or email info@moveonrentals.com.

DIY EXPERT

MAKE THE SPACE WORK HARDER

Get those jobs done with a little help from ‘Big Al; our resident DIY expert.

If you’re anything like me, you can never have too much storage at home, but it’s something that a lot of houses and flats lack and unless you like cluttered living, it’s not something you can do without. One room where storage is essential is the bedroom and while a walk-in wardrobe is the stuff of dreams, it’s not something most of us have room for. The next best thing is fitted wardrobes, as they provide acres of storage space and can be built in to alcoves to make the most of what could be dead space. Fitted wardrobes are usually made to measure, so every inch of space is used, much of which is wasted with freestanding wardrobes. The interiors of fitted wardrobes can be customised with drawers, shelves and hanging space, etc, depending on your needs, so they’re a very bespoke storage solution. The main downside of these wardrobes is the price - they typically cost thousands of pounds

from a specialist company, although a local carpenter will often make them for a lot less Fitted storage is particularly useful in awkwardly shaped rooms. In a loft-conversion bedroom, for example, a freestanding wardrobe may not fit, but creating built-in storage under the eaves maximises the limited space. If your bedroom already has fitted wardrobes but the doors belong to another decade, simply replace them with more up-to-date ones (as long as the wardrobes are fine internally). Lots of online companies offer standard-sized and made-tomeasure replacement wardrobe (and kitchen) doors, so it’s easy to get a new look for a fraction of the price of newwardrobes. In the kitchen, lack of storage will drive you to distraction. A larder or larder unit is ideal, but in small kitchens, a larder is a luxury too far. That’s why it’s important to have a really well-designed kitchen. Kitchen showrooms and DIY

stores have all sorts of clever ways of making more of the space, including pull-out worktops and shelves/racks, carousels in corner units, drawers within in drawers, and pop-up knife blocks. Away from the kitchen, there’s potential to build in storage all over the home. Ideas include an under-stairs cupboard (if there’s just an understairs space, a carpenter can create a cupboard), freeing up the airing cupboard by having

a combi boiler fitted and so getting rid of the hot-water cylinder, window seats that double as storage, stairs that contain drawers, vanity and wall units in bathrooms, and bookshelves and cupboards in alcoves, even a desk - with a bespoke home office, the space can be tailor-made for your computer, books, files and more. Some of the best storage is, of course, a loft or cellar. Cellars are generally easier to access, but can be prone to damp if not tanked.

HOW-TO TIP Boarding a loft (with chipboard) can cause problems with loft insulation. The recommended depth for mineral wool insulation is 270mm (other types of insulation may differ), but if the joists on the loft floor aren’t that deep, you’ll have to use shallower insulation because compressed roll insulation doesn’t work properly. To ensure there’s enough insulation, either use loft legs to raise the floor level so you can lay thick enough roll insulation underneath the chipboard, or fit sheets of rigid insulation on top of the joists, with chipboard on top. This should produce a well-insulated loft, which will make a big difference to how warm your home feels, and a good storage area with room for a lot more than just Christmas decorations..

PRODUCT OF THE WEEK WATER-BASED WHITE WOOD PAINTS Water-based white wood paints are a much better choice than solvent-based ones because they’re quick drying and low odour, are easier to clean off clothes, carpets and skin and, crucially, don’t discolour over time. Ronseal Diamond Hard Wood Paint in Pure Brilliant White (from ¬£11.99 for 750ml, Screwfix) is a good one to use because it has all these advantages and more. Up to twice as hard as traditional gloss paint, it’s designed to resist chipping, scuffing and scratching, so it’s especially useful in areas that take a lot of punishment, such as halls, stairs and landings. It’s nice to use, works well on all kinds of interior woodwork and is available in gloss, satin and eggshell finishes.

HOW TO PREPARE GARDEN SOIL FOR PLANTING The biggest mistake beginning gardeners make is using lousy or too-thin soil. Before planting anything in your yard, prepare your garden beds by digging to loosen the soil and adding organic material! This prep work can save you untold disappointment and, perhaps more than any other factor, assure a bountiful and delicious harvest. If you’re working with a brandnew garden (or one that fell fallow and you’re bringing it back to life), you can stake it and get it ready the autumn before you plan to plant. This act gives the soil and the amendments you’ve added time to settle and meld. It also means you have less work to do next spring.

QUEEN OF CAKES Some turn to therapy in times of need. Others phone their friends. But for queen of the kitchen Delia Smith, there's only one proven way to lift the blues - cake.

A hefty wedge of cake may not chase your woes away, but football fan Delia reckons the cheap and satisfying process of baking a cake is a great mood lifter. With this in mind, she has brought out a special edition of Delia's Cakes to mark the 35th anniversary of the release of her Book Of Cakes. Delia's Cakes will include some trusty favourites like old-fashioned cherry cake and coffee and walnut cake, as well as some new recipes. And 90% of the recipes can now be made using glutenfree alternatives. "The whole affair from start to finish is about supreme unadulterated

pleasure," writes Delia of baking. "Or as someone once said, when you offer homemade cake to anyone, it never fails to put a smile on their face. "Actually setting about making a cake, allowing your creative powers to come into play, knowing all those smiles that await you, has a kind of hidden social agenda - it's cheaper than therapy and much more pleasurable." In these tough times, Delia believes that rather than reaching for shop-bought sweets it's more important than ever to put on our pinnies, crack out our cake tins and begin baking. "If I might put a positive spin on our current climate

RECIPE

Dark Jamaican gingerbread Ingredients 175g plain flour, sifted 1 tbsp ground ginger 1 tsp ground cinnamon 1/4 tsp nutmeg, grated 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda 2tbsp milk

75g black treacle 75g golden syrup 75g dark brown soft sugar 75g block butter 1 large egg, lightly beaten ­

Method Pre-heat the oven to 170 oC, gas mark 3. Begin by placing the tin of black treacle (without a lid) in a saucepan of barely simmering water to warm it and make it easier to measure. Sift the flour and spices into a large bowl, then mix the bicarbonate of soda with the milk and set it on one side. Now measure the black treacle, golden syrup, sugar and butter into a saucepan with 75ml of water, heat and gently stir until thoroughly melted and blended - don’t let it come anywhere near the boil and don’t go off and leave it! Next add the syrup mixture to the flour and spices, beating vigorously with a wooden spoon, and when the mixture is smooth, beat in the egg a little at a time, followed by the bicarbonate of soda and milk. Now pour the mixture into the prepared tin and bake on a lower shelf so that the top of the tin is aligned with the centre of the oven for 1.25 1.5 hours until it’s well-risen and firm to the touch. Remove the cake from the oven and allow to cool in the tin for 5 minutes before turning out. If possible, store it in a cake tin, still in its lining, for 24 hours before eating, and serve it cut in thick slices spread with butter. 154

of austerity, what homemade cakes have got going for them is that they provide you with something really luxurious at very little cost," she writes. "A chain coffee-house muffin circa 2013 can cost six or seven times as much as a vastly superior homemade version." So with Delia's encouragement ringing in your ears, it's time to tackle one of these tasty treats. Both the passion fruit and orange cake and the dark Jamaican gingerbread are new recipes, while the double lemon drizzle cake is an old classic.

MAKES ONE CAKE


To make the filling: slice the passion fruits into halves and scoop out all the flesh and seeds into a bowl. In another bowl combine the mascarpone, sugar, vanilla extract and 3 tablespoons of orange juice. Then add two thirds of the passion fruit juice and seeds, and stir them in. Spread this mixture over one of the sponges, then make some indentations with a teaspoon and spoon the rest of the passion fruit into them. Place the other cake on top, press it gently and dust the surface of the cake with icing sugar just before serving.

RECIPE

Double lemon drizzle cake with poppy seeds

RECIPE

Fresh orange & passion fruit cake Ingredients 115g self-raising flour 1tsp baking powder 115g spreadable butter 2 large eggs 115g golden caster sugar Zest of 1 large orange 1tbsp orange juice

For the filling: 2 ripe passion fruits 250g mascarpone 1tbsp golden caster sugar 1tsp vanilla extract 3tbsp orange juice A little icing sugar sifted ­

Method Preheat the oven to 170ºC, gas mark 3. First sift the flour and baking powder into a roomy mixing bowl, lifting the sieve quite high to give the flour a good airing as it goes down. Then add the butter, eggs and caster sugar and, using an electric hand whisk, mix to a smooth, creamy consistency for about one minute. After that, using a tablespoon, fold the orange zest and 1 tablespoon of orange juice into the mixture. Divide the mixture between the two prepared tins, level off using the back of a tablespoon and bake near the centre of the oven for about 25 minutes. The cakes are cooked when you press lightly with your little finger and the centre springs back. Remove them from the oven and after about 30 seconds loosen the edges by sliding a palette knife all round then turn them out onto a wire cooling tray. Now carefully peel back the lining by first making a fold and gently pulling it back. Lightly place the other cooling tray on top and just flip them both over so that the tops are facing upwards (this is to prevent them sticking to the cooling tray).

MAKES ONE CAKE

Ingredients 175g self-raising flour 1tsp baking powder 175g spreadable butter 175g golden caster sugar 3 large eggs Grated zest of 3 large lemons Juice of 1 large lemon 40g poppy seeds

For the syrup: Juice of 3 large lemons Grated zest of 1 large lemon 50g golden icing sugar, sifted 100g golden granulated sugar­ To finish: 1tbsp golden granulated sugar with 1tsp poppy seeds

Method Preheat the oven to 170ºC, gas mark 3. Start off by sifting the flour and baking powder into a roomy mixing bowl, holding the sieve quite high to give the flour a good airing as it goes down. Then add the butter, sugar, eggs, lemon zest and juice and finally the poppy seeds. Now, using an electric hand whisk, mix to a smooth creamy consistency for about one minute. Spoon the mixture into the tin, levelling it with the back of the spoon, and bake near the centre of the oven for 40 minutes or until the centre feels springy. When the cake is ready, remove the tin from the oven to a board, then straight away mix together the syrup ingredients. Next stab the cake all over with a skewer and spoon the syrup evenly over the hot cake, then finally sprinkle with the sugar and poppy seed mixture. After that the cake needs to cool in its tin before it can be removed and stored in an airtight container.

MOTORING

MOTORING NEWS BEFORE

Expert Alloy Wheel Refurbishers in Dorset The latest news on all things motoring. By Nick Fletcher

www.silverwheelsltd.co.uk | 01202 896651 AFTER

GO SOUTH TO AVOID POTHOLES! Dorset is one of the better areas to go to avoid pot-holed road surfaces, according to a new survey. Motorists in the North of England and in Scotland are up to three times as likely to damage their cars on poorly maintained, potholed roads, according to campaign website, Potholes.co.uk. But in the South, its a much smoother situation. Automotive warranty specialist, Warranty Direct, analysed data from more than 50,000 consumer policies over four years and found that the 10 regions of the UK in which suspension failure is most prevalent are all at the top of the UK, with North Yorkshire being the furthest south. Overall, UK drivers pay out more than £1 million a day to repair axle and suspension parts on their cars, thanks largely to the legacy of years of under investment in road maintenance. With an average repair cost of £257, axle and suspension faults are the most common suffered by British motorists, the reason for one in five visits to a workshop every year. This winter has already seen some of the worst road conditions in recent history.

FOR: Classy styling, outstanding economy, Toyota reliability. AGAINST: Dull dashboard styling, narrow tailgate screen restricts visibility.

AURIS HYBRID ROAD TEST Hybrid cars are here to stay and one of the pioneers, Toyota, has just won the Green Car Of The Year title with it Auris hybrid, which was praised for its outstanding fuel economy and its low emissions. That is very commendable, but how the car drives is also important and I was keen to find out when I tested this ultra-green model recently. The latest Auris looks very smart with smooth elegant styling. There is a choice of two petrol engines, one diesel, and a petrol-electric hybrid. The hybrid offers 98 hp from its 1.8 litre petrol engine with the electric unit delivering 80hp. I found performance not significantly different from most conventional cars in the sector - the 0-60 mph time is respectable at 10.9 seconds, with a top speed of 112 mph. The significant different comes when you consider the fuel economy - 74.3mpg

combined. And another bonus is that with a meagre 87g/km emission figure, you can forget road tax and congestion charges. Out on the road, at lower speeds only the near-silent progress reminds that you are in something a little different, though when pushed hard, the engine can be a little growly. The CVT transmission is smooth with the changes. Handling is safe and predictable, ride comfort not best in class but quite acceptable. It is not an exciting car to be in, but then its target buyers wouldn’t expect that anyway. Auris comes with front, side and curtain airbags, and stability control is also standard. Trim levels are Active, Icon, Sport and Excel. Even the Active starter model comes with air-conditioning, electric front windows, remote locking and a CD player. Icon trim adds features which include alloy wheels and a DAB radio, while Excel

models add automatic light and wipers and a leather-trimmed facia. When it comes to user-friendliness, all the essential controls are within easy reach and the central touch-screen infotainment system is simple to operate. Seating and steering wheel are adjustable, so you can get a good driving position with excellent forward vision. The cabin provides ample head and legroom for five occupants and a neat comfort touch is reclining rear seat backrests. The boot - which features an adjustable floor level - is roomy (360 litres) and folding seats boost this to small-estate capacity. Summing up, though Auris Hybrid at £19,995 in test-model Icon form is a bit more expensive than some conventional rivals, it still provides great value for money when you factor in the substantially lower operating costs.

CLASSIC FERRARI ‘BEST INVESTMENT’ A classic Ferrari is the best investment, providing a better return than property or fine art, according to analysis by experts at the Financial Times. The experts examined a number of assets to see which gave the best growth over the last 10 years. A high-end New York residential property has increased in value by 72 per cent, whereas a similar property in Hong Kong has risen by 220 per cent, a figure more in line with the performance of fine arts, stamps and rare coins. However, none of these investments have come close to the 395 per cent return on classic cars which, along with gold, continue to be the market with the best investment growth. Classic Ferraris are leading the trend, in recent years regularly occupying the top slots in the list of 10 most valuable cars sold at auction with two examples of the 250 Testa Rossa having been sold at over $12 million, the second going under the hammer for a record $16,390,000. This underlines a more general trend with all classic Ferraris as can be seen from the value reached by a long-wheelbase 1959 250 GT Berlinetta in 2003 - $1,195,691 – compared to a similar car which was sold in 2012 for $6,710,000, an increase of over 400%. 156

You will be pleased to know that there are a wide range of vegetables that will crop well in growing bags and raised patio beds. With potatoes you can use the potato growing bags, these will accommodate four seed potatoes in each bag, I would suggest you choose the first early varieties, as you can now purchase them loose, you will find it economical. Tomatoes, cucumber, peppers and herbs all do well in pots and with a raised bed carrots, onions, garlic, dwarf beans and mange tout peas will thrive. It is important to use a vegetable growing compost. DO YOU HAVE ANY SUGGESTIONS FOR A GROWING A VARIETY OF TOMATO WITH A GOOD YIELD WHICH ARE SWEET BUT AVERAGE SIZE? I am assuming that you grow your tomatoes outdoors, it is always good to try different varieties. Last year I tried several varieties and these three meet your requirements, Roma a small bush type sweet and plum shaped. Totem a bush variety with sweet medium sized fruit. Sweet Million a cordon type very heavy cropping and Black Cherry another cordon small very sweet fruit good cropper. If you would like to experiment try one of the new grafted varieties for very heavy crops.

The Time - To Look Good Once the preserve of the rich

and famous, facial aesthetics have become more and more popular and at a more attainable price it’s not surprising that these treatments are often seen as an extension to many women’s beauty routines. This is not without it’s consequences, unfortunately there are many practitioners out there who are simply cashing in on this boom and your health and welfare is not top on their list of priorities.

Look at the horror stories

that always find their way into the press, what is so often the case is the practitioner not being capable or sadly when some patients lie on their medical questionnaires prior to treatment, these questionnaires are there to protect you and not just an inconvenience or waste of time. It is very rare that the product itself either the wrinkle smoothing product or the H A fillers (hyaluronic acid fillers) are to blame. The product that is used to smooth out those unwanted

wrinkles was initially used medically for patients with facial ticks since the 70’s - then some smart cookie noticed that the treated side of their patients faces were looking much smoother and younger - and so its use in the facial aesthetics industry was born.

Until now there has been

(not just a one day course!), find out how long they have been practising in aesthetics, check that they have proper liability insurance. Also be wary of too good to be true deals and offers, ask yourself why, it isn’t a cheap product to buy, even as a well established practitioner like myself buying high quantities, it still comes at a cost.

Austin Brewer is a practitioner

If it’s cheap, it’s for a reason - Either you are being used as a so called “guinea pig” by somebody with very little experience or you’re not getting what you pay for - then again if you’re paying so little maybe that’s exactly what you’re going to get”.

no formal regulation of the industry, but the Independent Healthcare Advisory Service has a pioneering government backed quality assurance scheme in the form of the “Treatments You Can Trust” (TYCT) website in place to protect you. This is a register, that you, as the consumer can search to find a practitioner who has extensive training and insurance and meets the rigorous criteria that acts as a safeguard when searching for a professional and qualified practitioner. in Dorset that is registered - and has been for 2 years. “It should be compulsory, Austin says, if it were I think we’d have a lot fewer practitioners!” He also added “Don’t be afraid to ask questions, ask to see their medical registration card, check that their certificates and training records are extensive

SENSATIONAL SPRING OFFER 50% OFF INTRACEL TREATMENTS FULL FACE , EYE AREA, JAWLINE, NECK & DECOLLETAGE Intracel is an amazing new treatment for stimulating skin to repair itself without the downtime of previous invasive resurfacing treatments. The treatment works by fractional radio frequency combined with dermal needling, heating the deep dermis and stimulating the tissue to produce new collagen and elastin. The unique tiny insulated needles are inserted at various levels safely heating only the dermal layer. The surface of the skin is left smooth with short lasting redness and fast healing time. A detailed consultation with your medical practitioner will outline which areas of your skin are suitable for treatment. Clinical studies show that an effective regime is normally 1-3 sessions, spaced about 4-5 weeks apart.

HEALTH & BEAUTY

SPRING BEAUTY If winter has felt a little black, white and grey, inject some colour back into your life via your vanity case This season brands have gone to town with light and bright hues to put a spring in our step and revamp uninspiring make-up bags. “Colour is back and making a statement for spring/summer 13!” says Kirstin Piggott, Rimmel London's make-up artist.

Whether you wear beautiful soft powdery pastels or bold pigments, a focal bright shade either on the eyes or lips is a key trend in makeup looks. This season it's all about being fun and experimental. Embrace the new season with beauty's sea of fresh colour. Every spring has a dominant colour theme for make-up and nails, whether it’s subdued nudes or flashy neons. For 2013, sugary sorbet hues are sweetening up beauty counters with limited editions aplenty. Estee Lauder’s Pure Colour Nail Lacquer fanciful collection of mouthwatering pastels has been christened ‘Heavy Petals’. Creative make-up director Tom Pecheux says: “I thought of amazing bouquets from the flower markets, the pretty pastels of children’s carousels and the pops of colour from macaroons for inspiration.” Simply choose your intensity, ranging from wishy-washy watercolours to power pastels that pack a dramatic punch.

FACE THINK MANNEQUIN SKIN A season awash with uplifting spring colour requires the perfect base to pull everything off. Aim for mannequin-like skin with a luminous finish. Say goodbye to matte and flat, and hello to hydrated skin with flattering subtle highlights that bring your features to life. "Highlights are about pulling your face back from the foundation," says M.A.C's director of make-up artistry, Terry Barber, who dubs it 3D spa skin. "It's the idea of nude skin that's slightly high-tech for a wellconditioned look that's balmy and beautified."

Seventeen limited edition Oh So Spring Cheek Stamp in Coral £4.99

Estee Lauder Pure Color Pretty Naughty Spring Collection, from £14.50


TRIED & TESTED Overwhelmed by new trends? Our testers give their nails a slick of classic nude pink:

EYES GO BLUE

Seventeen Lasting Fix Nail Colour Limited edition Darling £2.99 (Boots)

In the words of Frank Sinatra, Ol' Blue Eyes Is Back - but there's nothing old-fashioned about this look. Banish visions of an Eighties throwback. Fashionforward aquamarines are the favoured colour family gracing eye sockets this season. Blue is officially the new spring black, whether it's a pretty cornflower pastel wash or turquoise lined eye. "A directional bold eyeliner is an amazing way to add a mega flash of colour without having to brave coloured eyeshadow," advises make-up artist Liz Beckett. Keep mascara to a minimum to really make your true blue liner stand out.

3/5

If you like your polish on the shimmery side, this pink from the Oh So Spring collection is for you. It's verging on mauve rather than nude but the polish delivers a smooth finish and dries quickly with two coats.

Rimmel 60 Seconds Nail Polish Caramel Cupcake £2.99 (Boots/Superdrug)

Givenchy limited edition Haute Couture Look gift set £22.50

x

3/5

One coat of this gives a sheer barely-there glossy layer that blends in with my natural nail colour. A second coat adds a light caramel sheen. Dries fast, durable and easy to apply, thanks to the Xpress flat brush

Avon Nailwear Pro+ Nail Enamel Naked Truth £6 (avonshop.co.uk)

BROWS SUPERSIZE THEM Blame Cara Delevingne. The supermodel-of-the-moment admits she never tweezes or threads her caterpillar shape and the power brow look has well and truly caught on... Dominant boyish brows automatically give eyes a tough, modern edge. Think of them as the new mascara for framing your eyes. If you're not the proud owner of a bushy pair, step away from the tweezers and use an eyebrow pencil to create the illusion of couture brows. Make-up artist Bobbi Brown says: "Use a brow pencil in the shade that matches your natural hair colour to define brows. Begin at the inner corner of the brow and follow its natural shape using light, feathery strokes." Bobbi Brown Brow Kit £35.00

4/5

Subtle and stylish, this nude pink from Avon is a great muted tone. Easy to apply, smooth and quickdrying, you need two coats to maximise the classy colour but once applied and dried, it's pretty hardwearing.

L’Oreal Paris Rouge Caresse in Cheeky Magenta, £8.19

YSL Spring Look Pure Chromatics Collector No 14 £39.50

Estee Lauder Pure Color Nail Lacquer Heavy Petals Collection £14.50

NOSE JUST ADD FRECKLES The signature of youth, freckles are the instant way to anti-age your face - with no pricey skin cream involved.Embrace the faux freckled look for perfectly preppy skin that's been magically sunkissed. It's an easy effect to achieve but think subtle scattering rather than oversized dots that look OTT. The look should say athletic glamour rather than fancy dress gone wrong. Revlon global artistic director Gucci Westman says: "Adding freckles to the face feels youthful and sweet. Create a thin point using brown eyeliner and add sporadically for authenticity."
