A-One Advice Clinic What is the outlook for my cash savings? These are challenging times for investors and savers alike. The after-effects of the Brexit vote are continuing to work their way through the market, and sentiment is likely to remain fragile until there is some certainty about how the UK will trade with the EU and the rest of the world. It is little wonder that many have chosen the perceived safety of fixed term cash deposits. When the Bank of England base interest rate was around 5% the returns on these accounts looked attractive. Of course, the situation now is very different. Interest rates have fallen to 0.25%, their lowest level in history, and with continuing economic uncertainty it seems very likely that interest rates will remain at this level, or lower, for some time to come. Many people are discovering that the rates now being offered on reinvestment of their maturing deposit accounts fall far short of what they were getting, and what they need. Ultimately this means that whether you are looking to grow your capital for the future, or provide yourself with supplementary income now, leaving your money on deposit simply won’t provide the solution. How can I make my money work harder? Many savers are recognising the need to look for alternatives, but understandably want the reassurance that their money is in expert hands and is being managed to take account of the uncertainty in current financial markets. Against the certainty of disappointing returns on deposit, now may be the time for you to consider other solutions available to help you to achieve your financial goals. Where should you invest your money and when? The five key rules that we believe all investors should follow are: 1) Invest for the longer term 2) Make sure you always have sufficient money on deposit to meet your short-term needs 3) Never ignore the risk that some time in your life you are going to have to live through a period of significant inflation 4) Diversify your investments as widely as you can 5) Find the very best managers you can for your investments What is the St. James’s Place approach to investment management? Instead of employing our own investment managers, we use a number of leading managers to manage our funds. Where necessary, the managers are changed, without charges or tax implications for the investor. By spreading assets between the St. James’s Place range of funds, the investor can achieve much greater diversification of risk. The next clinic will

GOOD NEWS! ASK THE EXPERT...

Decluttering before selling Steve Webber, Director of Maidmans Moving & Storage Steve has many years’ experience in the moving and storage industry. He offers the following advice about the importance of decluttering your home before selling. Steve says: “When selling your home there are many reasons for decluttering. When you visit new show homes they are ‘dressed’ to show off rooms as bright & spacious. Prospective buyers will often make a higher offer for a clean & tidy property”. These few tips will help you to declutter and organise your house before selling: • Ask yourself ‘do I really need or want it?’ If the answer is no, declutter it! • Furniture could be sold or donated to charity. • If you have not worn clothing in over a year, don’t waste time moving it. • Sort through your paperwork and discard or shred anything that you really don’t need; Maidmans offer a shredding service. • Declutter your shed, attic and garage in good time. This will take longer than you think. Dispose of paint pots, chemicals, and any flammable liquids responsibly. Steve says: “Remember that removal companies base their price on the volume to be moved, as well as the distance. The more items you move, the greater the removal cost. Why pay to move things which you will just discard once you arrive at your new home. Should you decide to declutter before your house goes on the market, Maidmans offer a range of storage options.

Saxe Coburg Gives Back with Mercedes-Benz of Poole At the end of last year Saxe Coburg congratulated local businessman Ashley Turner, who won a brand-new Mercedes E-class for a week as part of their charity initiative to support the 2016 Poppy Appeal. This bespoke campaign by the award-winning Estate and Letting Agent raised awareness and funding for Remembrance in the build-up to 11th November. The Saxe Coburg team met with Ashley and Katie Wareham who is Mercedes-Benz of Poole’s Star Experience Manager at the Poole showroom to showcase the car and talk through the technical specification to the winner. The four-door, five-seat saloon is one of the best-selling, marketleading vehicles from Sandown Group. The stunning, new E-Class Saloon blends dynamic looks with exemplary performance, comfort and safety. The winner of the Saxe Coburg competition is looking forward to testing out the car this January, and we look forward to his feedback on it!

ASK THE EXPERT... Monty isn’t just a dapper tweed-wearing handsome Fox; he is also a wealth of knowledge when it comes to the world of property. He is on hand to dispense hints and tips on house sales and property rentals to would-be smart Foxes and Vixens in his fortnightly House Column. This issue, Ron asks, “What sort of contract should I go for when selling my property?” Dear Ron, The two most common types of contract are ‘sole agency’ or ‘multi agency’ contracts. A sole agency contract dictates that you are tied into that agent for a designated period of time and they are the only ones allowed to sell your property. Look out for any wording stipulating ‘sole selling rights’ as this would mean you would need to pay them commission even if you find your own buyer! The positive of sole agency contracts is that you may be able to negotiate a lower commission based on the fact. You may also be able to build a better rapport with the agency as they may be more motivated knowing they are a sole agent on the property. However, on the flip side, you are tied into them and if they turn out to be an inferior agent or if you do not get on with them you will be unable to enlist any other agent until the time elapses or you terminate the contract (which may incur a penalty). The thing to look for here is the length of time an agency will want to tie you in for as this can vary dramatically – some over 20 weeks or even until the property is finally sold. Multi agent contracts simply mean you can market your property with as many agents as you wish and you will only pay commission to the agent who actually sells your property. The benefit of this is not being tied to one agent who may not be right for you and your property and gives you flexibility. You need to be aware that if there are multiple agents involved they may be less motivated to promote your property – however, this should not really be the case with good agencies who will work hard on your behalf regardless. The other thing to watch for is whether marketing your property over numerous agents gives the appearance of desperation – have a think about whether you want multiple boards outside your property! Foxes Sales & Lettings are happy to work with you on a contract that suits you and your property selling needs – our end goal is to make sure we market and sell your property in the most efficient and professional manner that works for you. Every issue you’ll find that Monty has hidden himself on a page of House magazine – if you find Monty you are in with a chance to win a prize! This issue Foxes Sales & Lettings are giving away a very handsome Monty Fox – email belen.robbins@foxes.co.uk with the page number that you found Monty on to be entered into the draw. Good Luck!

ASK THE EXPERT...

SELF EMPLOYED MORTGAGES If you are self-employed and looking for a mortgage, you can still be eligible for normal mortgage products but you have to prove your income in a different manner to someone who is employed. HOUSE asked Jordan Tuttle from Homeline Mortgages to explain more. What is a self-employed mortgage? There is no such thing as a self-employed mortgage, it is a normal mortgage, the same products are available, you just have to prove your income in a different manner to someone who is employed. The key difference for self-employed applicants is you need to prove your income to a mortgage lender via your accounts or tax returns, rather than simply providing payslips as employed applicants do.

SERVICING ALL INDUSTRIES

INDUSTRIAL

I am a sole trader; how do I prove my income? As the name suggests, sole traders are one man bands, the mortgage lender will be looking to assess your income by using your selfassessments that have been submitted to HMRC. They will ask you to request a form called an SA302, this shows the total income received and total tax due for each financial year. So, in this instance your income will be assessed on your net profit. I am in a partnership; how do I prove my income? If you go into business with someone else, you may well set up your company as a partnership. When assessing your income mortgage lenders will take into consideration your share of the company profit.

COMMERCIAL

I am a director of a limited company; how do I prove my income? Setting up a limited company keeps your business separate from your personal affairs. Most directors will pay themselves a basic salary, usually up to your personal tax allowance, plus they will draw dividends throughout the year. Most lenders will want to see at least 2 years accounts or tax returns, the more accounts you can show the better. How do they assess my income & how much I can borrow? Each lender has different income criteria but generally most lenders will accept salary & dividends shown on your most recent finalised accounts. Sometimes the last two years are averaged, however there are lenders who will accept the most recent year alone. Once your income has been established the maximum loan calculations are the same as for employed applicants. They will perform what is known as an affordability calculation, which assess your income against your committed outgoings. Speaking to an independent mortgage broker is invaluable when self-employed as their knowledge of the market will ensure that you are matched with a lender and product that is most suitable for your circumstances.

WELCOME TO 2017 I think I can speak for many of us when I say that 2016 was a pretty mixed sort of year, but it finished well for us with a flurry of activity, and a very successful Christmas Charity Appeal. Our chosen charities of Bournemouth Foodbank, Dawg Dorset Dog Rescue and Puurfect Paws Cat Rescue benefitted from the generosity of our clients and friends – with a mass of food and other treats being handed over just before Christmas. One very noticeable trend in 2016 was the increasing number of online only estate agents, but we are very proud to maintain the high street presence we have built up in 26 years from our office in Charminster Road. So many people, whether sellers, buyers, or just those thinking about a move, call in for

Margaret Annable

chat and it is gratifying that so many comment on what a nice relaxing atmosphere there is in our office. Offering a very high level of service is so important to us, and from all we hear, a similar level is not available with many other agents, especially the online only ones. We will continue with our ‘no sale, no fee’ policy, so no upfront commission payment for our sellers. There are no extra fees for photography, floorplans, conducting viewings, negotiating or liaising with all concerned to hasten progress when a sale is agreed either, that all comes as part of our standard full service package. We have always felt that our past clients are our best advert and the

Penny Shaw

Leigh Nash

last testimonial we received just before Christmas sums up what we aim to achieve perfectly “The whole experience of dealing with Paul Watts was excellent from start to finish, nothing was to much trouble for them, and they went beyond the call of duty to make everything as simple and easy in selling the property possible so thanks, Barry!” Let me finish by saying that the whole team wish you all a very successful 2017, and hope that we can take part in that for many of you by assisting with your home move. Penny, Leigh, Karen and myself look forward to meeting lots of new clients in the coming months. Best regards, Margaret

Karen Cowan

“We are very pleased that we chose to use Paul Watts to sell our property. Their approach to things helped to dispel some of the prejudices about estate agents that we may have held beforehand. We would recommend them to anyone looking to sell a property. Margaret and the team were wonderful to my brother & I when we asked them to sell our late dad’s house which had been in the family for 50 years!!” READ MORE TESTIMONIALS AT www.referenceline.com

Diary of Award Winning Sales and Letting Agent Move On Sharon Canning

WHAT DOES 2017 MEAN FOR YOU? One thing for sure, if we don’t change anything, we will have the same result as we did at the end of 2016! If 2016 was great for you, then well done. If you are like me and know

Letting agents to be banned from charging tenants – so who will end up paying for it? The answer is, tenants will. My view has always been that both tenant and landlord should contribute to an agents fees for bringing the transaction together, after all they are equal parties to it. The fees tenants pay are therefore an integral part of an agents income so when they are banned agents will no doubt look to landlords to plug the gap, and with even less doubt landlords will raise their rents accordingly, passing the cost full circle back to the tenants. In my opinion, for what its worth, the government would achieve far more by bringing in stringent regulation for lettings agents, but then whenever did the government listen to the industry – remember HIPS and how that turned out?

it could have been better, then it is that time of year, where we need to have an honest conversation with ourselves! Did I lose the weight I promised myself – NO. Did I have the long weekends in Europe I promised myself – NO. Did I get that work/family/life balance -NO! I do know, the timing must be right. It is easy to say ‘I am going…’, however, if we don’t really mean in it, then guess what, it doesn’t happen. If I want to weigh the same at the end of 2017, then I just continue as I am, chances are I will probably weigh more if I do that. If I want my fitness level to be higher, then I must do some sort of exercise, because it just isn’t going to happen without it.

DREAM KITCHENS & BATHROOMS How to design the perfect open plan living space? The term “open plan” brings to mind images of grand, large spaces – but that’s far from the reality for most of us. Instead, open-plan areas often combine multiple purposes in a space that’s only really large enough for one functions. On the upside, open-plan living is great for families in particular, as you can all do different things while hanging out together. It also creates an illusion of space that many people prefer over navigating a maze of small, separate rooms. When done well, your open-plan area can be updated from the confusing mess of multi-tasking that it used to be, to defined spaces of clarity. This might sound like a dream, but there are some easy tricks you can use to make this a reality. So, how can you make open plan living work for you, in even the tightest of areas?

1

Define each purpose If you have an open-plan kitchen, dining room, living room and study, for example, it’s helpful to give each of those purposes its own space. Clearly defining the different zones is the key to avoiding cluttered open spaces. How to place your furniture and accessories can take some thought. Use your furniture to identify which area relates to which task. Rugs are great for this too, as their linear lines clearly outline the specific spaces.

2

Be clever with furniture When using furniture to define your separate zones, a few clever tricks can go a long way.

A modular lounge is a great idea for a living space, as it is one large sofa that clearly shows where the seating area for the room is, Also dining table that fills the space nicely also clearly defines the eating zone, and island bench tops in the kitchen dictate where the kitchen stops and the living space starts.

3

Use colour Colour is an easy way to separate the different purposes within your open plan space. Selecting the right colours for the functionality of the space is so important and it can create visual barriers or definition in an open plan, rather than physical partitioning. Also, important to keep the basic colours (whites or light neutrals) the same, to keep an underlying cohesion and flow. Colour is easily changed. The brilliant thing is, when the need comes to change the use of that space, a quick lick of paint and reshuffle of furniture will reflect its new purpose.

4

spend the most time in, so you want to make it a friendly place to be. You have a great opportunity to pull together a cohesive decorating look for your home, and all the furniture pieces in the space need to work together to tell the same story.” This story can be told via some common themes, like a colour or texture that ties each part of the open-plan room together, or simply your choice of style throughout. Dream Kitchen and Bathrooms bring the knowledge and expertise to design your ideal open plan space. We offer a large area of expert advice: • • • •

Create borders It’s time to make your furniture work even harder: as well as using it to roughly define spaces, you can also use statement pieces to create physical borders around your open-plan area. Bookshelves, buffets, sofas and console tables are key pieces to separate different sections of a room, they are functional pieces that provide more than just a storage or decorative use for your room.”

5

Be cohesive While you want to make each function of an open-plan room work separately, it’s also important to remember that it all needs to fit together. After all, it’s usually one of the rooms you

OUTDOOR LIVING

ENJOY YOUR GARDEN ALL YEAR ROUND During the winter the damp and blustery weather can make it easy for us to neglect our outdoor space, both at home or work. Having said this, we can expect sunny yet cold days throughout the winter, which are great days for really sorting our gardens out. Extreme weather can have disastrous affects on our outdoor furniture, fences, planters, and plant borders, especially if they are made from wood, as wood can split, splinter, crack and rot in British weather. Also wooden decking and walkways can become dangerously slippery when wet, which makes them a potential death trap - especially for children and the elderly who might not be as steady on their feet. All of our decking and walkway products come as anti-slip as standard! This is a great feature as it means that you can enjoy your garden and outdoor area even in wet weather, without the fear of slipping or falling over. Not only are our products anti-slip, they do not split or splinter, will not rot or decay and are absolutely maintenance free, guaranteeing them to last over 50 years! If you want to ensure that your garden will be ready to use this spring then invest in our long-lasting, affordable and durable outdoor products. From benches to walkways, we stock a variety of fantastic outdoor products that will transform the look of your garden and save you money in the long run. At Reformed Plastics all of our products are made from 100% recycled plastic. We manufacture products ourselves and then sell direct to the Domestic and Commercial sector. Due to ever increasing importance to recycle and protect the environment, our products are made from 100% recycled plastic. The plastic used is recycled in the UK 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. Our products have many practical and very useful properties and have an extensive range of different uses, some of which being are as decking, fencing, outdoor furniture, planters, boardwalks, landscaping, bollards, signage and 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!

We recycle plastic and then manufacture goods from it, we produce recycled plastic furniture for use in gardens and patios and we retail recycled plastic products such as recycled plastic fencing and recycled plastic decking.


OUTDOOR LIVING

The concept of Reformed Plastics was born over 15 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 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.

regular basis to ensure that your purchase is kept in the best condition.

He discovered that the USA and a few European countries had been recycling and re-manufacturing 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.

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 is worry free.

DOES IT NEED TO BE CLEANED? Our 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

MOTORING

MOTORING NEWS The latest news on all things motoring. By Nick Fletcher

ARCTIC MAZDA MX-5 Mazda is hoping for things to turn a little Arctic this winter with the launch of the latest special edition version of its MX-5 convertible. On sale from February and priced at £20,995, the new MX-5 Arctic comes with Blue Reflex Metallic paint and contrasting bright silver design cues. Only 400 will be available. Based on the 1.5-litre 130 hp SE-L Nav, the MX-5 Arctic’s silver details contrast against the icy blue paint. With 16inch Silver alloy wheels, a silver windscreen surround, silver wing mirrors and silver headrest hoops the Arctic has the distinctive look. Inside, the stand-out feel continues with silver cup holder rings and chrome scuff plates, while the upgraded equipment tally includes heated leather seats, automatic headlights, rain-sensing wipers and rear parking sensors.

ROAD TEST: INFINITI Q30 PREMIUM TECH Infiniti is a premium car brand which is still under the radar for many, but that situation is changing rapidly as sales begin to gain momentum, writes NICK FLETCHER. Infiniti was introduced in 2008 as a stand-alone luxury marque from the Nissan stable and it offers cars which are charismatically designed and beautifully built, and are a stylish alternative to the long-established premium German brands. The Q30 is a good entry to the Infiniti stable, a five seater sporty-looking hatchback with models starting at £20,550. There are petrol and diesel options and five trim levels. It competes in a sector which includes BMW 1 Series, Mercedes A Class and the Audi A3 and many would argue the Q30 has a much more distinctive appearance. Its bold stylised grille, sleek headlights and large badge make a strong statement. Each time my Q30 Premium Tech test model – costing £31,180 - was parked, people came over to take a closer look, and most admirers guessed the price at around £50,000. My test car had the 168 hp 2.2 diesel engine with a 6-speed auto gearbox. Top speed is 134 mph and the 0-60 mph time a

nippy 8.5 seconds. Even so, fuel economy is very good – 57.6 mpg combined. Ride quality is superb, arguably best in class, and the car feels smooth and effortless to drive, with the dual-clutch auto transmission seamless with the gear changes. The cabin has an immediate luxury feel, with quality materials and a nice understated premium look. Front seats are especially comfortable, designed to give a lot of back support for those long motorway trips. Rear seats will take three adults and bootspace is good at 440 litres, and can be increased by dropping the split-fold rear seats. Standard kit on the Premium Tech version includes dualzone climate control, leather upholstery, wood inserts, powered front seats, front and rear parking sensors, rear view camera, 7-inch touchscreen, radio/CD Bluetooth, adaptive brake assist, lane departure warning, 18 inch alloys wheels, auto lights and wipers, cruise control and a wealth of detail features such as aluminim kick-plates and black laquer side sills. The Q30 impresses as a lot of car for the money, with elegant styling and good driving dynamics and is a creditable rival to other premium-class marques.

VW GOLF ‘BEST USED CAR’

124

The Volkswagen Golf has won the Car Dealer magazine Used Car of the Year Award. Collecting the award Ian Plummer, Volkswagen UK’s Head of Sales Operations, said: “The Golf retains a timeless appeal and so it’s perhaps no surprise that it continues to pick up awards as a used car.It’s a car that continues to put smiles on the faces of our customers.” James Baggott of Car Dealer magazine, added: “Mid-sized cars are the bread and butter of so many used car dealerships up and down the UK. Perfect for couples and young families, there is a wealth of choice for buyers in this busy part of the market. The Golf is a massive success and the fact that it has been around since 1974 in one guise or another tells its own story.” The Golf has been fine-tuned over four decades and is available in huge variety of bodystyles, drivetrain options and equipment levels ensures the broadest possible appeal. It is also among a small group of mainstream models in its class to be offered in petrol, diesel, hybrid or full electric form in the UK.

MERCEDES NIGHT EDITION

ROAD TEST: LEXUS GS300H The Lexus brand has a strong following with both private buyers and business users, and the latest GS300h helps explain why, writes NICK FLETCHER. Beautifully styled and extremely refined to drive, the GS300h has a clue in its name – the ‘h’ is for hybrid. It uses petrol engines boosted by electric motors to deliver good fuel economy, low road tax and more attractive benefit-in-kind rates for the business user. There are two engines in the range, the 300h and 450h. The smaller engine is a 2.5-litre petrol, the other a 3.5-litre V6. Both are mated to electric motors. There are four trim levels: Executive Edition, Luxury, F Sport and Premier, all very well equipped. Rivals in the sector include BMW 5 Series and Audi A6, but the Lexus offers a formidable alternative, scoring highly for classy styling, green credentials, lower taxes and, it can be argued, more brand exclusivity. Prices start at £34,995 for the GS300h Executive Edition, which was my recent test model. Its 2.5 litre petrol engine is harnessed to an electric motor giving 223 hp, and has CVT auto gearbox. The 0-60 mph time is 9 seconds, top speed of 119 mph. And for such a large powerful car, the fuel figure of 64.2 mpg combined is impressive, as its the low emissions figure, just 104g/km.

Underway, this model is ultra-smooth, with seamless gearshifts and quiet cabin even at motorway speeds. In town, you can use all-electric power for short periods. The car is very comfortable, with exceptionally supportive seating and nicely balanced suspension. Recent revisions have given the GS a more potent visual character, with protruding grille and narrower headlights. The cabin immediately gets attention with its large 12.3 inch multi-media screen, deep-set to minimise reflections, and all the materials have a premium look. Standard kit even in the entry level Executive Edition includes dual-zone climate control, sat-nav, powered and heated front seats, 12-speaker audio system with DAB radio and DVD player, leather upholstery, auto lights and wipers, reversing camera and front and rear reversing sensors, Bluetooth, and smart entry and start. There is also a wealth of safety features including pedestrian detection, adapative cruise control, lane-keeping assist and traffic-sign recognition. The GS doesn’t have quite as much rear space as some, but it will be fine for the vast majority of users, and the 450-litre boot is large enough for normal needs. Apart from its elegant styling and driving refinement, the GS has the lowest running costs in its class which is a major plus-point, especially for the business community.

Mercedes-Benz is extending its range of exclusive models with the arrival of the S-Class Coupé Night Edition, which opens for orders on January 9th. Prices have not yet been announced. There will be a choice of two engines, a 3.0 litre offering 367 hp and a 4.7 litre with 455 hp, and the choice or rear wheel drive or four wheel drive. Top speeds are electronically limited to 155 mph and the 0-60mph time of the most powerful version is 4.6 seconds. The exterior equipment details of the Night Edition include its distinctive radiator grille with a single louvre in high-gloss black, together with 20-inch AMG multispoke light-alloy wheels. The exclusive wheels are painted black and feature high-sheen detailing. The exterior mirror housings and the inserts in the side sill panels are also finished in high-gloss black. Front and rear aprons with AMG bodystyling come as standard, with Night Edition badges on the front wings. Selenite grey magno paint comes as standard. The interior features engraved Night Edition wording on the insert of the nappa leather AMG sports steering wheel.

JEEP RENEGADE AWARD The Jeep Renegade has been named 4x4 Magazine’s ‘4x4 of the Year 2017’, retaining the crown for the second year in a row. In this latest recognition, the off-road driving publication’s panel of expert judges was unable to find a contender capable of taking away the Jeep Renegade’s ‘4x4 of the Year’ crown. Excellent on-road, the range-topping Trailhawk version also outshone rivals on 4x4 Magazine’s tough off-road evaluation course. “Since winning last year, we are now seeing many more Renegades on the roads here in the UK and in Europe,” says Nigel Fryatt, Editor, 4x4 Magazine. “Admittedly, not all of them are Trailhawk versions, and some are front-wheel drive, yet that merely underlines the importance of this small SUV.” In the same awards, the Renegade won the ‘Mid-range SUV’ category, the legendary Jeep Wrangler took the ‘Hardcore’ class for the fifth consecutive year, and the Jeep Cherokee won the ‘Top-Range SUV’ group. The Jeep Renegade range starts at £18,195 for the 1.6E-TorQ 110hp Sport, rising to £29,495 for the 2.0 MultiJet II Trailhawk.

Silver Wheels launch an innovative new process, and we got the inside scoop! With over 25 years experience in the industry, Silver Wheels’ directors recognised a gap in the Bournemouth area, to not only offer high specification finishes on alloy wheels but to provide exemplary service. “At Silver Wheels, we aim is to provide our customers with a wide range of finishes and a level of service to suit them, not us. We have a full range of samples in our showroom, for you to examine and to make your selection from. Take advantage of our experienced staff, who are there to guide you, and are happy to talk through your ideas, or suggest some of their own. We try hard to match the wheel, to the car, and to the owner. We hope that you will be amazed by what we can offer” With CCTV and a 24 hour alarmed premises, as well as ample onsite secure parking for customer’s vehicles, you can be confident that nothing untoward will happen to your vehicle whilst in our care. Just next door to Tyreland, should any of your tyres are found to be defective, or just the victim of natural wear and tear, a replacement can be done at the same time – saving you time and money.

Above and right: A diamond cut wheel can be identified by the polished finish on the front face of the spoke and another colour on the side face of the spoke. This second colour can be a silver, which can then make the polished face hard to spot. 126

Customers are able to bring a single alloy wheel for us to process or their entire car. We are happy to remove your wheels and tyres, paint your alloys, then replace tyres, balance your wheels and mount them back on to your car – a complete service. Silver Wheels provide the best finish in the market place today.

BEFORE

Let’s talk about the regular process… We strip wheels of all existing paint and then prepare the surface for the specialist paint process. We apply a hard wearing base coat, a colour and then a specialist Acrylic top coat designed to protect your final finish. Very few other companies offer this level of paint application, so make sure this is what you pay for. We can bring your wheels back to manufacturer specifications or we can change your colour! Have you ever considered Matt black? Gloss black? White or something a little more funky? Not only do we offer the highest quality of workmanship, with a 12 month warranty, we offer

a fast turn around of service, even up to a premium of a 8 hour time period to complete a full set of 5 wheels.

The Diamond Cut Wheels manufactured with a diamond cut finish are becoming more and more common, with most of the main manufacturers either offering them as upgrades or as a standard option. A diamond cut wheel can be identified by the polished finish on the front face of the spoke and another colour on the side face of the spoke. This second colour can be a silver, which can then make the polished face hard to spot. Refurbishment of a diamond cut wheel is carried out in the normal way, up to the point that the colour has been applied to the wheel. Then it is loaded into a specialist machine, that lathes the front faces of the spokes using diamond tipped tools – hence the term ‘diamond cutting’. Silver wheels are the first company in Dorset to be able to offer this service all completed in house. With a short turn-around time of just 2 days. We can repair damage to diamond cut wheels and return them back to factory specification using the same processes and paint suppliers as the main automotive manufacturers. It was, and has always been our mission, to concentrate on high quality results and deliver these results at a speed to suit the customer.

‘I’LL LEAVE FOOD CAMPAIGNING TO OTHERS’ Rick Stein’s latest foodie mission, Long Weekends, is all about enjoying life’s simpler pleasures. “It’s what we do really,” quips the 69-year-old seafood maestro, who over the years has cooked for a host of famous faces, including the Queen. “I’ll leave campaigning cookery to other people - people like Jamie Oliver and Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall who do a fabulous job. For me, it’s about saying, ‘Hey! We’re alive’, and what’s the best part of being alive? Eating and drinking... apart from the obvious,” he adds with a chuckle, “so let’s enjoy it while we can!” For those who haven’t caught Stein’s BBC Two food-travelogue series, picture a colourful culinary adventure that follows the chef as he embarks on a string of European weekends, in search of good food, wine and traditional recipes. Meeting at the office of his London publishers, Stein - who splashed onto the foodie scene in the Nineties, with his early seafood cookbooks and TV

series based on his life as owner of The Seafood Restaurant in the fishing port of Padstow, Cornwall - cuts a relaxed figure, excitedly reeling off vivid anecdotes of Palermo’s bustling markets and latenight dining in Thessaloniki, Greece. “It’s great fun. Crikey - to be paid to go off to these cities,” he notes, rolling up his shirt sleeves as he speaks. “For most people that work during the week, having a weekend off is wonderful anyway. But if you add a bit of travel, it makes it so special.” As for plans to open more eateries, he’s not sold on the idea of a chain, but likes to focus on offering opportunities to people with “considerable skill”, as he takes a step back from the day-to-day running of the business. “I’m 69 - I couldn’t do what my chefs do now, I just wouldn’t have the energy,” says the father-of-three, who turns 70 in January. “I’m lucky. Because I have such great managers, I can do less and less, but still have an overall feeling for how the business is going,” he adds, praising his sons

Ingredients For the meatballs: 500g minced beef 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped or grated 1 egg, beaten 1/2tsp ground cumin 1/2tsp dried oregano 2 slices stale white bread (about 100g), soaked in red wine and squeezed dry 1/2tsp salt 12 turns black pepper mill 3tbsp olive oil For the tomato sauce: 1 onion, finely chopped 1 clove garlic, finely chopped 3tbsp olive oil 5cm cinnamon stick 1tsp ground cumin 1tsp sugar 150ml red wine 1tbsp tomato paste 500ml passata 1/2tsp salt 12 turns black pepper mill

Method Mix together all the ingredients for the meatballs except the olive oil and, with wet hands, mould into 20-24 rugby-ball shapes. Heat the oil in a frying pan over high heat and fry the meatballs until golden on all sides, or grill on a griddle pan if you like grill lines on the patties. Make the tomato sauce by sweating the onion and garlic in the olive oil with the cinnamon stick, cumin and sugar until soft, about 10 minutes over medium heat. Add the red wine and bring to the boil, then reduce the heat to medium again. Add the tomato paste and passata, season with the salt and pepper and cook until slightly thickened, about 20 minutes.

ladleful at a time, stirring until it is absorbed, which will take about 20 minutes.

Put everything in a large pan with the water and bring to the boil. Simmer for an hour, then strain through a fine or muslin-lined sieve.

After about 12 minutes, in a separate pan, cook the artichoke wedges in boiling water for five to seven minutes until tender.

Add the broad beans and peas and boil for about three minutes, then drain. Add the cooked vegetables to the risotto and heat through. Remove from the heat and stir through the lemon zest and juice, the remaining butter, salt to taste, pepper and half the pecorino cheese. Serve immediately with the rest of the pecorino cheese.

REVIEWED

We wanted to know what all the fuss was about...

ROXY’S DINER American Comfort Food Located on the outskirts of the Dolphin Shopping center (Poole) is the swanky Yankee hangout ‘Roxy’s’ Diner’. Built on the foundations of classic American food, this compact diner is home to towering burgers, dogs, shakes and pretty much everything cheese covered. We arrived at the diner one afternoon to investigate their culinary delights for ourselves and here’s what we discovered… We paused at the chrome-finished bar, ready to be shown to our seats. As we waited we looked around at the numerous amounts of American memorabilia; 50’s posters, old school cereal cartons, checkerboard flooring and voluptuous red leather booths

occupied either side of the room, with an isle between. Soon after our perusal we were greeted by an exceptionally happy chap – then again if I worked surrounded by all this food, I’d probably be pretty happy too. “Your table awaits!” he said and off we went. Sitting comfortably in our cozy booth, we picked up our menus and began to gander at the options. On offer was an array of sinful dishes. Probably not for those on a January health kick, then again why have a health kick if not to have the occasional treat – right? Among our choices was the ‘Smokey Joe’ burger, a classic ‘Grilled Cheese’, a ‘Philly Steak Sub’ and of course copious amounts of American fries.

We knew a feast of such magnitude could only be washed down by one thing; A milkshake and that’s precisely what we ordered. Odd isn’t it, that a meal of gargantuan proportions can actually enable you to eat more? But this was no time for ladylike constitutions, one was to get stuck in and get stuck in good. The shake was creamy and sweet; I’d opted for the classic ‘vanilla shake’ – though naturally I sampled my dining conspirators shakes too, which were equally as delish. Oh the gluttony.

132

Soon it was time for the main event. As we were presented with our food, we didn’t hesitate getting stuck in. I sunk my teeth into the Grilled Cheese. The gooey goodness poured from either side of the thick toast – oozing delightfulness. There’s something very soothing about cheese. It’s the ultimate indulgence; you know it’s naughty, but the salty sweet savors render you powerless to its allure. You have 3 options available: cheddar, American or pepper jack. In this instance I ordered the cheddar and a mature one at that. If I could turn back time would I have opted for the American cheese? Perhaps, but there’s no sense crying over cured, pressed and aged milk. My co-reviewers informed me that the burgers were also rather tasty, a trusted appraisal

seeing as they disappeared as quickly as they arrived. The portions were gigantic! We each had our own Everest sized pile of fries, heaped further with a hearty sprinkle of cheese and bacon bits. We really ought to take an umpire on our next excursion. As our climb of cheesy-chip mountain grew weary, we all bobbed in agreement; we knew we’d gone too far, though not one of us left filled with a single ounce of regret. Leaving pants (that’s American for trousers – don’t panic) unbuttoned (ok now panic) we rolled back to our station wagons and began our pilgrimage back to the office. As we drove away, I turned back to gaze one last time. Roxy’s you have truly out-stuffed us and we thank you for it. For simple eats and sinful treats visit Roxy’s.

HEALTH & FITNESS Charlie Lowe from the fastest growing bootcamp ‘Wassmuffin Fitter Than fit’ talks Fitness, well being, healthy eating and of course Thai Boxing.

To lose weight, you need to burn more calories than you consume. Exercise, especially intense cardiovascular types that utilize the major muscle groups, burns a lot of calories. Thai boxing qualifies as a moderate to high-intensity cardiovascular workout that burns calories and helps you build muscle tone. Whether you are Thai boxing in a private studio or participate with us at Fitter Than Fit Boot Camp, Thai boxing can help you lose weight. FEATURES OF FITTER THAN FIT Thai boxing combines moves to deliver a total body workout. Classes usually follow a format involving a 5 to 10 minute warmup, punching and kicking drills interspersed with athletic conditioning and a five minute stretch and cool-down. The movements are repetitive to hone agility and speed, as well as proper execution of movement.

TRAVEL

MARVEL OF THE MALDIVES I don’t know how it happened, but having popped off to powder my nose, I’m now dancing in delight, with a stranger in paradise. I’m in the Maldives in the Indian Ocean, a country which offers the ultimate in laidback luxury. It has pristine sands, turquoise lagoons and tropical fish that sparkle and shimmer in the sea. So it may seem odd that I’m about to rave over my resort’s restrooms, which is where I’m presently dancing. But they’re such a joyous discovery with their sea-dappled walls, wacky music, whales’ tails, photo booth, and life-sized pictures of Kate Moss-style mermaids - they represent to me, the beginning of a love affair. Not with the guy that I bumped into and jived and joked with, but with LUX South Ari Atoll, a resort which - although this sounds well nigh impossible - offers more than just the Maldives. But I’ll come back to that, later. The Maldives is a chain of 26 atolls, 700km southwest of Sri Lanka. The southern isles include Hulhule, home

to the international airport in the capital, Male, and Dhidhoofinolhu, where you’ll find LUX South Ari Atoll. As we approach, by seaplane, the view is stunning: palm-covered islands, each with a cyan-blue halo, float like lily pads on a sapphire sea. Our pilot, wearing flip flops, brings us down. We glide to a halt across the glassy water. At the jetty, staff wave and shout, ‘Welcome’. Within minutes, I feel like a glamorous castaway. Our villa, with its palm thatch and courtyard pool, opens onto a powdery, milk-white beach; two loungers, framed by coconut trees, face the ocean. My husband and I go for a dip, enjoy a rose-pink sunset, and watch the night sky flood with stars. The next morning we’re sitting, in dazzling sunshine, on the roof of a dhoni, a traditional Maldivian fishing boat, scanning the sea for shadows; I seem to spot them everywhere. But Tina, LUX South Ari Atoll’s marine biologist, knows what to look for - a shape she describes as belonging to “the biggest smile in the ocean”.

We’re searching for (harmless) whale sharks, the largest fish in the world; the biggest recorded is 12.65m long and 21.5tons. White Sands Reef, just minutes from our resort, is one of best places to find them. Incredibly, we’re in luck...

“He’s coming towards us!” Tina shouts. “Quick! Get in!” We grab our fins and jump into the sea. Moments later, a flattened head emerges from the shadows; you can’t miss the colossal “smile”. The shark’s 4m long, a juvenile. I swim beside it for quite a few minutes, keeping my distance, but close enough to feel part of its world. The spotted giant cruises against the current, sweeping the water for food. Then it disappears, ghost-like, into the deep.


TRAVEL

and frangipani flowers. Beachside restaurants, bars and pools are hidden in the trees. At one end is the lagoon, the crystal clear water lined with brightlycoloured bean bags. We sit at the bar, a smart take on a laidback surf-shack, and listen to reggae with a bottle of rose from the resort’s exclusive Scrucap selection. A glance at the menu tempts us to try something. We delight in a salmon and red snapper carpaccio and the freshest tuna tartare we’ve tasted. Everyone we chat to comments on the food; it is, without doubt, superb. At East Market, an Asian market-style buffet built over the water, we wander among sacks of rice and baskets of beans, to stalls of steaming dim sum and cook-to-order curries and stir fries. A joke with chef Pong leads to my husband cooking his own Thai green curry, ladling in coconut milk and flavouring it with fresh lemon grass. Pong, very generously, proclaims it’s “the best he’s ever tried”. On the sunset side of the island is Beach Rouge, with a beach club vibe, white furniture and red cushions. My twice-cooked octopus is so tasty, I choose it again during our stay, while the kulhimas (traditional fish curry) served on the terrace at the Senses restaurant, is as fresh as the breeze that wafts in from the sea.

Another day, while snorkelling, I spot a green turtle diving below. Its patterned shell glints in the sunlight, as if a huge emerald has been lost at sea. Where the reef drops away, I come across parrotfish, powder blue surgeonfish and a shoal of black and white pennant coralfish that sink and rise with the waves. I hold my breath and notice munching sounds; it’s a lilac and lime parrotfish, nibbling at dead coral as it cleans the reef. Occasionally, it excretes a cloud of sand. “Kids love it when I tell them they’re walking on parrotfish poop,” Tina says as we return to the shore. LUX South Ari Atoll is one of the largest resort islands in the Maldives, at almost 2km long. A sandy lane runs the length of it, through palms

But it’s the resort’s little touches that excite me most, adding fun, flair and an element of surprise to this sunny island hideaway. There’s the red, thatch-roofed phone box inviting you to phone home for free, wooden carts in little clearings offering fresh coconut and bottled water, Sanih’s ice-cream parlour with its home-made waffle cones, the open air cinema (where my husband, in jest, asks for popcorn, and the reply is “Certainly, sir”) and the cups of rich, island-roasted coffee, with whale sharks patterning the foam. And then there’s the giant banyan tree which, in a nod to local custom (and to encourage donations for community projects), is the resort’s Tree of Wishes.

Red ribbons flutter from its branches. On each of them, a guest has written their heart’s desire: ‘I wish I was a fairy princess’, ‘I wish to be a marine biologist’ and ‘We wish for lovely memories of the Maldives’ they declare. We spend our last two days in an extremely stylish overwater villa, with a nautical feel, a private pool and steps leading into the lagoon. It’s the perfect place for lingering; there again, so is the spa. We go for a couple’s massage but within seconds, my husband’s asleep. I leave him snoozing and slip into the pool. The sky turns peach, the sand glows gold and the hum of the departing seaplane reminds me we’ll be on it tomorrow. But for now, my wish is to wallow in paradise. They say the whale shark has the biggest smile in the Maldives - me, I’m not so sure. 140

FOOD & DRINK

REVIEWED

We wanted to know what all the fuss was about...

KATSU BAR An Explosion Of Flavour

Located amidst the hustle and bustle of Landsdown Road is the quaint and seemingly modest ‘Katsu Bar’. Katsu has proved an incredibly popular dish in the UK, as Brits frequent Japanese restaurants up and down the country to get their hands on this Asian alternative to schnitzel. Katsu Bar is the second of Mr. Tak Ho’s restaurants here in Bournemouth, in partnership with head chef Steve Richardson. The duo has tons of experience between them operating the kitchens of several successful Japanese restaurants and it’s certainly noticeable at this venue. Fun fact; curry was actually introduced to the Japanese by the British, during the ‘Meiji Era’ (the first half of the Japanese empire) and is very much considered ‘Western cuisine’, as opposed to other more traditional dishes. Of course curry is subject to many different varieties but in this case we’re talking distinctively thick roux-style sauce, to which meat/veg is added. So it’s hardly a surprise that a dish ultimately invented by our ancestors has proved popular among Brits in this era. Recognising a fan favourite, Katsu Bar is aptly named to lure the locals into the curry haven, but despite its specific title this buzzing little restaurant offers so much more… We arrived one afternoon, ready to see what culinary treats were in store. Naturally one makes

assumptions of a place named after a particular dish; I suppose I assumed that everything would be centralised around Katsu and to a degree that was true, but as we sat down with our menus my attention was captured by other offerings. Blue-food-fans get your butts here! An entire section of their menu is dedicated to raw meat and fish (my foodie senses were tingling). Sure it takes skill to cook sensational food, but to make raw food taste incredible is truly next level. The dish in the spotlight was a ‘Tuna Pizza’ – I know, what a name! There are some dishes in one’s lifetime that stay with you; the best linger on your tongue months after. Not literally of course, but the memory of the flavour, along with a longing to return for more. Comprised of the most delectable slices of tuna sashimi, on a butter-rich tostada, lashings of punchy wasabi and avocado aioli, fiery Tabasco and Unagi sauce. BOOM a flavour explosion and such a diversity of textures and tastes; the crispy tostada against the silky tuna, aromatic aioli with the contrast of salty, smoky sauces – quite the taste bud frenzy. Ok, confession time; I don’t like Katsu (forgive me). Well that’s a tad strong, but faced with a menu of delicious Japanese food it tends to be at the bottom of my list of things I’d typically order. I know I say this a lot (for the fans who regularly read my articles – hi mum) but truly this review was in the pursuit of foodie journalism, having gone knowing of my

disfavour for the curry. Now for the moment you’ve been waiting for. The question on yours lips; was I converted? In a word –Yes! I had to try a classic of course, so I opted for the Katsu Chicken Curry, complete with my favourite; Japanese short grain rice (you know the kind that’s almost sticky rice, without the added sweetness). The sauce was thick and flavoursome, perfect for dipping the crispy chicken strips into. Our Asian feast was completed with a delectable sushi platter – as if we hadn’t indulged enough. We were presented with an array of spicy tuna, salmon and avocado and California rolls. What a delish third course; the fish was silky, almost butter-like – you know the sort that kind of melts in your mouth. The rice was superb too, sticky, but by no means gluggy, just as it should be. As we wiped our chops and rolled down our sleeves, we left beaming with the kind of satisfaction that can only come from truly tasty food. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the Katsu Bar and we will most definitely be back again soon.

13TH JANUARY THE CIRCUS OF HORRORS: THE NEVER-ENDING NIGHTMARE, AT POOLE LIGHTHOUSE The Circus of Horrors celebrates its 21st anniversary as it takes to the road with its latest incarnation The NeverEnding Nightmare at Lighthouse, Poole’s Centre for the Arts on Friday 13 January. The spectacular features an amazing amalgamation of bizarre, brave & beautiful acts all woven into an Alice in Horrorland type story driven by a mainly original soundscape & performed with a forked tongue firmly in each cheek. Its appearances on various TV shows have turned what started as a cult show into a household name – taking the extreme to the mainstream. Its TV credits boast The X Factor, The Slammer, Daybreak, Fairground Attractions, Who Wants to be a Millionaire, Body Shockers, Fake Reaction, This Morning, Ant & Dec, The One Show and A Royal Command Performance. The Circus of Horrors started its gruesome beginnings at the 1995 Glastonbury Festival and became an instant hit, touring all over the world from Chile to Chatham, Argentina to Aberdeen, Japan to Jersey including festival appearances with Alice Cooper, Eminem, Motley Crue, Oasis, Iron Maiden, The Manic St Preachers, Foo Fighters and many more.

21ST - 28TH JANUARY SNOW WHITE, AT THE REGENT CENTRE Mirror, mirror on the wall Who is the fairest of us all? Well, obviously, it’s Princess Snow White, looking radiant on her 18th birthday. But that only enrages her wicked and jealous stepmother, Queen Malevolent, who considers herself by far the fairest in the land. And so begins this classic tale as the vengeful Queen embarks on an evil plot to kill Snow White with a poisoned apple and claim her handsome suitor, the Prince, for herself. Luckily, Snow White has plenty of pals to protect her, including her outrageous nurse, Dame Doitall, and the Court’s cheeky ‘Mr.Fix-it’, Handy Andy. And happy endings are assured when the loveable Seven Dwarfs and the cute animals of the forest come to the rescue of a princess in peril. Another fun-filled, song-and-dance extravaganza from the celebrated, award-winning Charity Players. Do come and join them to hiss, boo and cheer. And be sure to book early – it’s the first time HCP has staged Snow White since 1978 and you don’t need a magic mirror to tell you that it’s a likely sell-out. Regent Centre www.regentcentre.co.uk
