TREE-CYCLE SCHEME IS A HUGE SUCCESS FOR DIVERSE ABILITIES Diverse Abilities, Dorset’s disability charity, recently raised £3,469 by collecting Christmas trees for recycling. Over the course of a weekend in January, 447 Christmas trees were collected from local residents in Dorset after they pre-booked their collections making a minimum of £5 donation per tree. Volunteers gave their time and lent their vans to collect trees from Poole, Bournemouth and other areas of Dorset.

BAYVIEW DEVELOPMENTS RAISE MONEY FOR JULIA’S HOUSE

PET FRIENDLY PROPERTIES NEEDED!

Bayview Development held a ‘Christmas Jumper Party’ lunch in December for people within the local property industry to raise money for Julia’s House hospice.

Joshua Irving-Brown, Letting Negotiator Goadsby Broadstone indicated that many of these applicants come to them saying, “We are finding it hard to find a property which accepts pets….. I am happy to pay a higher rental/deposit if that will help me secure a property…. We are willing to get the property professionally cleaned once we move out.”

Bayview Development would like to thank everyone who attended the event and made generous donations. www.bayviewdevelopments.com

There was a donation per head from everyone attending as well as an auction on the day, some of the lots donated to the auction included a signed AFC Bournemouth football, a skydive and several rounds of golf, amongst other items.

With limited supply, tenants with pets often stay in the same accommodation much longer, offering landlords a reduced risk of costly void periods.

Bayview Development were pleased to have raised £3,810 from this event, the donation was made to Sue Miles at Julia’s House Hospice (pictured right) before having a tour of the facility and meeting the staff.

SANDSTORM BEACH-BASED ASSAULT COURSE IS COMING TO BOURNEMOUTH On Sunday 26 March 2017 the first ever Sandstorm will transform Bournemouth Beach into the ultimate seaside assault course.

Sandstorm is about teamwork, pushing boundaries and achieving your potential – while also supporting the RNLI’s lifesaving work.

With 20 obstacles over a 5K circuit (twice round for 10K), this one-day-only event – which is organised by lifesaving charity the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) – will see participants battle the sandy terrain, facing thrilling obstacles, specially designed to push the limits of both physical and mental endurance.

“The RNLI’s volunteer lifeboat crew members and lifeguards are known for saving lives around our coasts, in all conditions, so Sandstorm is a great way for people to take on a personal challenge while also recognising and supporting the work our lifesavers carry out each year.

Hundreds of participants will put their strength, stamina and teamwork to the test as they climb, crawl and attempt to conquer the demanding course with obstacles including climbing walls, sand dunes, water pits, a cargo net, crossbeams and a slalom, to name just a few. Lauren Pincott, from event organiser the RNLI, says: “Sandstorm’s going to transform Bournemouth beach into a challenging seaside assault course. The obstacles are meant to be a physical challenge, but not so tough they can’t be done. Participants can tackle them all or choose their battles.

“People can enter as individuals or as a team. Either way, this is a must-do event for anyone who likes a physical challenge, but it is only happening for one day – Sunday 26 March 2017 – so book tickets now to avoid disappointment!” Tickets are on sale at sandstormchallenge. com. Early bird tickets are available until 19 February, and start from £40. After 19 February, the standard ticket price starts from £45. Varied transaction fees apply. Any profits go towards the RNLI’s lifesaving work. For more information, sandstormchallenge.com.

HOME BLESSINGS WITH CREATIVE MINISTRY Promoting and conducting home blessings has made me more thoughtful about what a “home” actually is and, more interestingly, where it is and how this relates to our lives and the world we live in. So “home sweet home”. I consider myself to be very fortunate to live in a property that is, on the face of it, just bricks mortar and tiles, an address and a postcode. However, it’s also my home because it’s the base from which I live my life and the place where I share time with my wife and family. It has a history, holds my possessions and provides comfort, warmth and shelter, a retreat too when needed. It’s also the place where all life’s ups and downs are expressed and I feel quite attached to it.

Just like the communities, towns, cities, countries and even the planet, our bodies too are a home to us. They house all our thoughts and feelings, aches & pains; joys and excitements some might even say our spirit and soul too. So that’s what a home is to me; the place within, where I come home to myself in peace. Home in this sense is truly, “where the heart is” and ultimately that’s what a home blessing is: an ancient tradition honouring the inner life whilst clearing and protecting the sacred space in which you live.

ASK THE EXPERT...

About using a local removal firm Steve Webber, Director of Maidmans Moving & Storage Steve has many years experience within the moving & storage industry, offers the following advice about using a local removal firm. Steve says: “It is always advisable to use a local BAR approved removals company, because they have to conform to a high standard of service and to follow the BAR’s Code of Practice. You can be assured that all staff will be properly trained with sound knowledge of the local area and conditions, with all vehicles well maintained and licensed. Buying, selling and moving home can be one of the biggest and most stressful events in your life. You may consider moving yourself but never underestimate just how big a job this could be. The safe relocation of furniture, pianos and antiques etc. is a time consuming and difficult job, especially if it is something you are not used to doing”. He added: “Sometimes there are unforeseen delays, such as a house sale not completing as anticipated, or keys not being exchanged on time. If you had to wait overnight or over the weekend, we have local secure storage facilities or we can keep your possessions on our lorry overnight, at our secure premises under CCTV surveillance. Our insurance cover for your goods runs from the start to the finish of the removal. Maidmans receive 80% of our new business by referrals. At Maidmans, we think there are plenty of good reasons why it’s worth going local!” For further information or to book a free visit and quote call

ASK A DESIGNER...

How should I display art in my home? Helen Winter of Coral Interiors explains. Clients often tell me they find it tricky to choose and display art in their home. Whether you prefer photography, oil paintings, canvas prints, old masters or contemporary abstract prints, your taste in art is a very personal thing, which also needs to work with your home. And after you’ve chosen it there’s a lot to think about when it comes to framing, mounting, and hanging it, too. Here are 3 quick tips to displaying art: Create a collection - Scale is really important when hanging art, so if you have smaller prints or pictures you’d like to hang, consider grouping them together, where they’ll have more visual impact. Theming is important too - whether your art or photos are of a similar subject, colour scheme or all in similar frames, aim for a well-considered look. And don’t forget your own photos can make a fantastic and unique gallery wall up your stairs or in your hallway. Have your favourite family photos or travel snaps professionally printed, mounted and framed and you’ll smile every time you’re reminded of that family holiday or wedding. Make a statement - Art can bring colour, personality and drama to a room. For a contemporary room with white walls, a large zingy abstract print in bright swooshes of colour can really energise. Or opt for pop art or a funky original from an up and coming artist. Think about the mood and energy level of the room. A kitchen is generally a dynamic, lively room so don’t be afraid to go for it and coordinate with your kitchen cupboards or coloured tiles splash-back. Create a vista - in a room with small windows or little natural light, choose a large print of an uplifting or dramatic view - a landscape, seascape or rooftop view of your favourite city or landmark. You’ll visually create a ‘window’ in the space and set a reflective mood for daydreaming or relaxation. This works well for bedrooms or a quiet sitting room. Call Helen if you have plans for your home, whether you’re moving, are extending up or out, or need some help with colour schemes, furniture layout, lighting or curtains and blinds.

ASK THE EXPERT...

WHY USE A MORTGAGE BROKER? If you are already a home owner looking to review your mortgage, or you want to arrange a new or first time mortgage, should you go to a broker for advice? Jordan Tuttle from Homeline Mortgages explains the benefits to HOUSE readers. What is a mortgage broker? Essentially a mortgage broker is a qualified professional who can offer advice and recommendations, sourcing the most appropriate and cost effective mortgage from the ‘whole of market’. They are able to offer expert advice and work on your behalf, which is the current market place is worth its weight in gold. Do I have to pay for the services of a mortgage broker? In most cases the answer is yes. If you choose an independent mortgage broker they will not be affiliated to any specific lenders - so they will generally charge you a fee to source you the best mortgage for your requirements. A few brokers are tied in with specific lenders and will earn their commission from the lender. Always ask for a clear explanation of these fees so you are aware of the costs. Do most home buyers use a broker or go it alone? A recent Guardian article reported that approximately 60% of mortgages nowadays are arranged via a broker. This is largely due to the changing relationships we have with high street banks and building societies. You can do your own research and make mortgage applications, but your chances of acceptance may be lower than when you use a mortgage broker. Why is it harder to make your own mortgage arrangements? After some widely reported problems in the financial sector, the City regulator the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) held a mortgage market review and set higher criteria for borrowers. There is now more scrutiny into your personal finances and your ability to repay your mortgage loan. That said, a ‘whole of market’ mortgage broker will have access to thousands of different loans and can be invaluable in finding the right loan at the best price, and with a higher chance of acceptance. What type of mortgages can a broker offer? If your mortgage broker is ‘whole of market’ that means they have access to almost every single mortgage available, including the main stream lenders and high street names. Using their knowledge they will know which lender is most suited to your requirements and will advise you accordingly. Any other benefits? At Homeline Mortgages we know that the majority of our customers stay with us for ‘life’. There are many reasons for that, and largely it is because we can reduce the stress by handling all of the paperwork and admin of the mortgage process from start to finish. Having a friendly broker who understands your circumstances can not only save you time and money, but can also be very reassuring. Your initial mortgage consultation is obligation free. We charge a fee of up to 1% of the amount to be borrowed. Our typical fee is £495. Your home may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on your mortgage.

KATIE THOMAS, DESIGN DIRECTOR, KTM DESIGN

INDUSTRIAL

As the lead designer at KTM Design, I work on the interior design of all sorts of spaces across the UK. From vibrant offices that give businesses that winning edge, to sophisticated cocktail bars, to houses that deserve a new lease of life. Regardless of the type of space or project requirements, there is always one thing that seems to puzzle clients the most. Colour. It is most prominent with residential clients, whether I am helping them prepare their home for sale or redesigning their home for personal

COMMERCIAL

use. The most important thing is to not let colour scare you. By using my top tips and following a few simple rules, your colour nightmares will vanish. And if they don’t, feel free to call the number below! When choosing a background colour for a room, consider how much light the room gets. Bear in mind that if the room faces north, colours in it will appear ‘colder’ than in a south-facing room. Use pale colours to push the walls of a small room backwards and make it appear bigger. In contrast, dark colours make the walls feel like they are closing in on

R E TA I L

you. This is great if you want to make a large space feel cosier, but must be avoided if you’re trying to increase a sense of space. In a small home, use a palette of tonal colours – colours that are only marginally lighter or darker than each other – to help the space feel bigger. The boundaries between each room will appear to melt away giving the impression of space. By painting each room a completely different colour, small rooms will feel even smaller. Once you have decided on your colour, buy test pots to do a patch

ARCHITECTURAL

test. Create a test swatch by painting on large sheets on plain paper to put against your walls. Look at the swatches throughout the day as the daylight changes and place them in different parts of the room to ensure you are happy with the colour at its lightest and darkest. Finally, start adding contrast, texture, layers and accents through the furnishings and accessories. Now you can start bringing in pattern! Look out for more of my top tips in next month’s ‘Ask the Expert’.

One-to-One Confidential Counselling

This issue, Brynn asks, “Do I have to put up a ‘For Sale’ board?” Dear Brynn, The simple answer is no, you do not have to put up a ‘For Sale’ board when selling your house. There are still some people who may ask to not have one put up. The most common reason is that they do not want people approaching their house or knocking on their door. However, in all the years we have been selling and renting properties, we have never actually heard of this happening. Generally, if a member of the public sees a board they will call the number of the agent and go from there. Some Vendors do not want their neighbours knowing that they are selling, however, your immediate community can often be some of the best advocates of your road and can in fact help you sell your property faster- be that by talking to friends and relatives about the great new place that has just become available next to them. It is, of course, the Vendor’s choice whether they have a board, but we would always advise that they do from a Marketing point of view. Despite all our advances in online presence, ‘For Sale’ boards are still a key tool in sparking a potential buyer’s interest, even on the quietest of roads. These boards can potentially prompt a call from someone who was not actively looking online as yet – they can be a very powerful first step. In addition, the boards act as a confirmation of what someone has seen online. Often, people will drive by a property to ascertain their interest – the boards act as a sign post that the property is available and ready to be viewed. Ultimately the visibility of ‘For Sale’ boards has advantages that far outweigh any disadvantages – and don’t be worried about your board being up to long, if marketed correctly, it will be down in no time!

LAND & PROPERTY DEVELOPMENT

AN AFTERNOON WITH...

THE GENTLEMEN BEHIND AJ DEVELOPMENTS Walking into AJ Developments’ new Office, a cedar clad, secluded spot in Parkstone, there is a warm welcome that awaits you. Despite recently upsizing their business premises, they have retained the personable character and trusting atmosphere that they have become known for. Company Directors Sebastian Janes and Mark Adams started their careers in construction and their partnership together straight out of education, so we are keen to establish their thoughts on how business has been until this point, their ideas moving forwards, and their take on potential changes within the Market.

Mark: Seb and I will not compromise when it comes to our attitude to risk, dealings with potential buyers/vendors and relationships with investors and agents.

You’ve continuously set precedents and won some challenging planning applications with local councils, how have you done this? Mark: I can proudly say that AJ Developments has surrounded ourselves with very loyal and reliable Planning and Architectural teams with decades of experience between them. The thoroughness of planning applications we submit evidences our knowledge of the markets we develop within. We do not enter into an agreement with a vendor unless we have absolute confidence in our application receiving approval. Our attitude to risk is healthy, but calculated.

What are you most excited about for 2017? Mark: We have several larger schemes which gained planning approvals at the end of last year and will feature in our pipeline of works for 2017. These 10 unit+ projects will undoubtedly further strengthen our local reputation as are situated in areas we’ve had previous success and a great track record.

You have evidenced your continued success in winning Sites over your competitors, why is this? Mark: The entire AJ Developments team demonstrate efficiency, honesty, speed and professionalism. Although we are growing, it is at the forefront of our minds to retain the same approach that has contributed to our success thus far.

What has been your best achievement to date? Seb: Without a question of doubt, having built and successfully grown the business from 2010 in the midst of the previous recession. It taught us extremely valuable lessons which moulded our attitude and approach to everything we do today.

58

Tell me about AJs plans for this year. Seb: I feel very strongly that strategically we should continue to keep our developments under the £1Million unit mark, certainly this year and for the foreseeable future. We are confident that the low to mid end of the market will continue to prosper due to the underlying housing shortage for homes in this price bracket. We are a registered Help To Buy Developer and are looking to strengthen the aforementioned market and provide affordable housing for first time buyers in our community.

Sebastian Janes and Mark Adams

Seb: The business relationships we enter into are very black and white, and we would like to think that this instils confidence in those we deal with. What was your mission from the outset, and how has that compared to the work you’re undertaking now? Seb: Every year we set our annual goals and evaluate our 5 year plan. These are company wide goals that are derived by our entire team and shared with new members of staff . When starting out it was our ideal to provide high quality housing that is built at sub market average prices, this is absolutely something we are achieving year on year to date and a goal that we all work towards. To what do you attribute your success? Both: We have a shared burning ambition and have complete trust in one another’s ability. Despite managing opposite ends of the business, we don’t get comfortable and will not settle for anything less than excellence. The question on everyone’s’ lips; What are your feelings towards Brexit? Seb: Remaining positive during periods of uncertainty is so important for us. We feel that removing ourselves from the EU will provide a renewed sense of opportunity, enabling us to take control of planning legislation and have autonomy over building methods to ensure we are proceeding in an environmentally friendly manner to reducing global impact for generations to come.


LAND & PROPERTY DEVELOPMENT

Left: Sandecotes Road, Penn Hill; 4 sizeable three storey detached houses, to be built to an extraordinarily high specification. These commodious houses will be finished in December 2017

Right: The spacious kitchen and living area which opens onto the south facing garden at Marama, Moorfields Road, Canford Cliffs

How do you think this will affect us locally? Mark: Although the outcome of invoking Article 50 is unknown, we still have a growing population with a National Housing Shortage and an increasing demand for quality new build homes, Brexit or no Brexit. Immediate indicators suggest continued growth and an ever-increasing desirability and demand to reside in the Southern and Home Counties. We have first-hand experience of how investment capital is moving from London to the South Coast. How does AJ Developments help the local community? Seb: With regular Community Give Back Days supporting and donating our time to local charities, our growing workload provides more jobs to local tradesman. Building affordable housing is the area of the market from which we started, and an area we will never overlook. Are you thinking big enough? Seb: Yes. In 2007 ‘Think Big’ by Donald Trump was published… fast forward 7 years. On a serious note, we have ambitions to continue to grow the company whilst maintaining profitability and great returns for our investors.

Something a little less serious now, who are your Dinner Party Guests? Both: A table with Bear Grylls, Barak Obama, Elon Musk, Roger Federer and Jenson Button, would make a pretty spectacular evening for us. Although both gentlemen have made considerable sacrifices to get to where they are, they continue to make time outside of work to spend with their families and friends who share in their success and will be waiting in the wings to celebrate what this year has in store. t. 01202 734012 | e. info@ajdevelopments.net w. www.ajdevelopments.net

VANTAGE POINT A New Way to Let

Letting out property is a tried and tested investment idea (and often a fortuitous one at that), but renting your property to permanent lodgers has its limits. Introducing Vantage Point and their very exclusive service:

More Money, Less Worry If you own an investment property (or multiple) in or around Dorset, there is a new and exciting way for you to potentially earn up to 100% more in rental income – hassle free! Vantage Point work on your behalf to maximize your property’s financial potential through Airbnb – the online holiday rental portal that is taking the world by storm! Airbnb enables vacationers to book places to stay outside of the commercial BNBs and hotels, opening up the market to second homeowners and private landlords alike. Vantage Point acts as your property manager, handling everything from guest communication and 24-hour check-in, to cleaning, laundry and property maintenance. They are the only business outside of

the capital currently offering such a unique service. Everything is managed to a professional hospitality level, which means less worry for you and quality service for guests staying at your property. Hence, repeat bookings through good word of mouth and proper advertising.

Let To Holidaymakers You might have considered the idea before, but found yourself deterred at the thought of all the extra work that comes from careless tourists. Well, unlike a conventional lettings agent, Vantage Point takes care of every aspect. The process begins with the set-up and advertisement of your property through the Airbnb portal. With a wealth of market knowledge on their side, they know exactly what to show and say when it comes to making your property sought-after. After your unique property profile is established, Vantage Point gets to responding to incoming enquiries and managing bookings – and believe us, they will come! By maximizing the flexibility

of multiple guests over permanent residents, they can open to door to higher nightly rates. How much to charge will depend on location, aesthetics, amenities etc… but you can guarantee it will be greater than the yield from an ordinary month’s worth of rent. Incredible financial potential aside, there is no end to the rewards with this exceptional service. No need to wake in the early hours of the morning to let renters in. No need for a thorough clean once they’ve left. Maintenance to your property? No problem. Having Vantage Point on your side means that anything your guests should need (or cause) is taken care of. If Vantage Point have captured your attention and you want to learn more about how they could help you, then get in-touch with their friendly team.

OUR HOME IS CUSTOM MADE! Bob and Virginia White explain why they had their home ‘Custom Made’ by local fitted furniture business – Custom Made Furniture Based in Poole, Custom Made Furniture is one of the region’s leading names in bedroom and bespoke fitted furniture. Neill Roberts and Steve Burke have between them over 50 years experience in designing, manufacturing and installing custom made furniture. “We came across Custom Made Furniture through a recommendation from a kitchen fitter, we were looking to have bespoke wardrobes installed and were given their details. There were so many reasons that made Custom Made stand out. First, it had to be Neill and Steve. Their personal involvement made us FEEL very IMPORTANT as clients. They were and still are, always there for input and assistance.

Their help with the projects they have worked on for us is INVALUABLE. With that and the QUALITY of their work you really couldn’t find a better team. We started off with bespoke wardrobes which were so BEAUTIFUL that our neighbours called Custom Made Furniture in to make their wardrobes and kitchen! On our next project they fitted out our entire home. The kitchen, the office, walk in wardrobe, super king-size bed with headboard and all of our lounge and dining furniture. The COMPLIMENTS we receive from everyone that walks through our door are endless!

The whole process from design to installation is SEAMLESS. The fitters are respectful and diligent. The finished product is close to FLAWLESS. I like to be very hands on with my designs and the help from Custom Made was ESSENTIAL. I know what I like, but it helps to have someone guide you through what will really work. I would bring a design to Steve and Neill and they would make suggestions based on their years of EXPERIENCE and together we would end up with exactly what I wanted.” If like Bob and Virginia you would like to add a personal ‘Custom Made’ feel to your home, visit the website www.customiseyourhome.com or call on 01202 737 555.

There are many ways to describe the place where you live and it is generally the place that is closest to the heart of the residents and can even become a prized possession.

A house becomes a home when you put yourself and your family and friends within it and there are number of reasons why you may like your home to be blessed by me. • To help when selling a home • Before moving into a new home • After a divorce, bereavement, change of job or other major life event • At the start of a new relationship • When leaving a home that has particular attachments for you • To prepare the house for a new arrival • If you’ve had a bad experience at home or feel “uncomfortable” in any room

In a regular series, Sarah March-Paschal, from Bruce Lance solicitors in Poole, will unravel the mysteries of residential conveyancing and explain why finding the right solicitor is almost as important as finding the perfect house.

TALKING BUSINESS

AN INTERVIEW WITH...

WILLTON HOMES A New Year, A New Look There’s nothing like a reunion, so we met up with the team over at Willton Homes, almost a year to the day we first met. We had the pleasure of catching up with associates ‘Rebecca Oliver’ and ‘Bill Seaby’ to see what’s new…

A New Office The team at Willton Homes had searched high and low for THE perfect place to set-up their new office and we can confirm that they have found it! You can visit the team at their brand new office in idyllic Ringwood. The office is wonderful – a bright, welcoming, open space – the perfect place to talk potential projects. “We worked for 20 years building up a reputation and an admirable portfolio from our old office, but it’s wonderful to now have somewhere where we can all gather and share ideas as a team”, Bill remarked. With an eclectic setting, made up of both urban and rural architecture, Ringwood provides a wealth of inspiration and makes working in such an environment a joy. Bill and Rebecca implore those with land, or an upcoming project in mind, to pay them a visit at their new home.

Heritage Brand Gets A New Website Willton Homes are proud to announce the launch of their new website; A fresh and dynamic design that allows customers to peruse with ease. Rebecca explained; “We wanted a website that reflected our keen eye for detail and quality”. She went on to show me what months of developing the concept had resulted in and it was stunning! A sleek, high-spec site that seamlessly flows from page to page, not unlike the exquisite homes that they build! See for yourself, just go to www.willton.co.uk

Help to Buy; tell us more! Willton Homes have joined the fray and have become part of the ever exciting ‘Help To Buy’ scheme, which means you now have the option of purchasing a brand new Willton home, with help on the deposit from our Majesty’s Government. Not only will you benefit from owning your own home, but you will also have attained a stunning new build – made to spec by the talented team at Willton Homes.

TALKING BUSINESS

Athlestan Terrace, Mill Lane, Wareham

Got Land? We’re looking! Willton Homes are always on the look out for suitable locations for future projects. You don’t have to be sitting on acres of unoccupied land to be eligible, in fact, some of our most successful projects started off of the back of modest unmanageable gardens. If you think you, or even a collection of neighbours, might have some lot to lend then get in-touch for a little more information.

Our commitment to your home doesn’t stop at the front door. - Bill Seaby

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

HOW TO CHOOSE A GREAT AGENT? Why is this such an important question? You and your agent are a team and it is important for you to feel this. They must understand you, your reasons for selling and how quickly/slow you want to sell. Your agent should be able to be honest with you and tell you how your local market is behaving, the prices being achieved and why some properties go quicker than others. It maybe they will make a recommendation, perhaps tidy the garden, paint the outside, kerb appeal is important. Some people will not look inside if they take a dislike to the outside. The price is important to agree. We all want the best price for you, but if you put it on too high, you can lose out on the initial interest of the current market. Purchasers will dismiss yours from being too expensive and may feel you would be unreasonable in negotiating. So, it is very important to listen to the proof of recent sales from your agent when deciding the price. If you choose the agent who came in at the highest valuation, you will lose trust in them if a few weeks down the road, they recommend a price drop. If your property is on for too long, people may

‘Growth of the Private Rental Sector in Bournemouth and Poole’ The PRS (Private Rental Sector) in the UK has grown considerably in both size and importance over the last five years and is now worth a staggering £1.29 trillion. To contextualise, that is 1.29 million stacks of pound coins, with each stack being a million coins high. The PRS now makes up 18% of the housing stock in England alone and is expected to rise to more than a third by 2032. Because of this rampant growth, it is no surprise to see that around 20% of homes in Bournemouth and Poole are privately rented, which is encouraging for private landlords and would-be investors. Even homeowners have something to think about, as they may be tempted to turn the family home into a source of income, or indeed use their pension pot to become a landlord. A decade ago, buying a home was a very different experience. Post-credit crunch the landscape in this area has changed, with many younger people unable to buy their own homes due to house price growth outpacing wages. This has made it both logical and practical for many people to rent, choosing between renting privately or using the options available from the local housing association. 10 years ago, of the 140,000 or so households in Bournemouth and Poole, around 115,000 were owner-occupied. Today the number of households in the area has risen to over 150,000, but with the number of owner-occupied properties falling to 112,000. In 2001, only 22,000 properties were rented by private tenants compared to 2011’s figure of over 37,000 - an increase of 70%.

assume there is something wrong with your property. You and your agent are a team, as I said before, you should have a great working relationship with them and you must trust them. A good agent will ring you each week, with an update on your property. They should be calling you after each viewing with feedback. Then there is the Fee! We all want the best ‘sold’ price achieved and to

Long gone are the days when tenants viewed rented accommodation as a stopgap; today many renters are in it for the long haul, often taking initial twoyear contracts and sometimes staying for up to five years or longer. While this is ultimately good news for private landlords wanting to minimise void periods, it also means that tenants have higher expectations and are more discerning about their rented homes. They are inclined to pay that little bit extra to get exactly what they desire from a home, and landlords will need to ensure their properties are in the best condition possible if they are going to maximise their return.

pay the least for doing it. Don’t be too hasty on the fee. Make this your last reason for choosing an agent. If an agent ticks all your boxes bar the fee, talk to them. It should be a win-win for both of you. We can’t dismiss the online agencies that are popping up. It could be you wish to go down this route and pay the fee upfront rather than a percentage. Or the traditional estate agency with no sale – no fee.

There is certainly a benefit for landlords who run their property portfolios as a business; the attention to detail that comes from this approach will help mitigate the expected refurbishment losses from reduced tax relief in the years ahead. The reduction in tax relief from 45% to 20% will affect buy-to-let landlord investors over the next few years and probably put some people off becoming landlords. However, the ones who are savvy and make the most informed decisions will continue to prosper in the PRS.

Some worry once they have paid their fee, they won’t receive the same service. The no sale no fee agent, is incurring costs from the day they start taking photos, they really do not want to spend money and not achieve a sale at the end of it. So, choose 3 agents to give you a valuation. Do an impromptu visit to their office, did the staff make you feel welcome? Look at the boards going up in your area. Look at their current register, does your

Looking ahead, we expect the recent changes to stamp duty on second homes to create a small increase in the proportion of owner-occupiers relative to the PRS. But the sky-high level of demand for houses in the area means the capital value of properties is set to remain strong.

TALKING BUSINESS

LED ZIP

Now That’s A Bright Idea LED’s; not entirely breaking news on the old lighting circuit, but there are still so many of us who have yet to utilise them to their full potential. Incredible savings, stunning features and a better quality of life are just a few of the benefits to be gained, read on to find out more… Creating the perfect atmosphere is 10% décor and 90% lighting. Think about it, that warm cozy feeling you get on return home, it’s usually pretty much in sync with the flick of the light switch – maybe slightly delayed if you’re working with energy saving bulbs. Light has a major effect on our mood; it can make or break our disposition. So it’s vital that we invest in the proper solution. Cue ‘LED Zip’.

A Light Bulb Moment In 2008 owner Nick was out of work and looking for a new opportunity. Having worked in various different electronics jobs, it’s no surprise

that he’d find himself looking for something of the same ilk. One day a friend suggested that Nick come and take a look at the kind of work he was doing. It was something one of a kind (for it’s time), something no one was really doing. A company owned by ‘Phillips’ was developing the first LED lamp, but they weren’t yet being sold on the open market. Blown away and filled with faith in such a phenomenal product, Nick decided that he would try his hand at selling them and so LED Zip was born. After debuting their product range at a popular 10 daylong boat show, they began to pick up customers, predominantly commercial at the time, as the cost for a single down light back then was extremely high. Word soon spread around about their incredible products and has lead them to work on some remarkable projects over the years, from small-scale residential all the way to royal stately homes!

We know for a fact that products we sold at that boat show, 8 years ago are still in perfect working order, and they were the first edition LED’s – some of which have spent their whole life at sea!

118

Despite their success and the grandeur of the projects that they have worked on, I couldn’t help but notice their level of humility. They spoke about their lighting project for the Swire Fountain in St. James Park with as much passion and excitement as they did for a kitchen they’d done in a modest 2-bed semi.


TALKING BUSINESS

The company has gone from strength to strength since its launch in 2008; their dedication to quality, bespokemade products and friendly service has become their calling card. You can find the team in their Kinson based showroom/workshop, where you can pop by and talk lighting solutions.

Made In The UK We live in a time where homegrown manufacturing is fleeting. Almost everything we buy is made in another part of the world. LED Zip are incredibly proud to state that all of their products are made here in the UK, many of them at their very own workshop and the quality is second to none. It might be an oversight to you or I, but the specifications on the new age LEDs that they stock are incredible. For example, have you ever tried to change a bulb only to discover its molten temperature? Not a problem for LEDs! Don’t be mislead, these bulbs still get warm, but nowhere near the scolding heights of a regular one. Every light has tailor-made housing, crafted out of the best metals around, which not only makes your LEDs safe but it also protects their durability,

ensuring that they don’t burn out in a years time. I really could indulge you in everything I learnt about lighting from this zealous business, but if there was one thing I walked away with, it was confidence in their skill and knowledge. Unlike your average bulb each and every LED comes with a guarantee – that’s how confident the manufactures are in this product. They work on a ‘noquibbles’ basis, so if you are having any kind of problem with your bulbs you have them replaced hassle-free.

LED Us Cut Your Costs! During our interview Nick took the time to explain a few case studies and the incredible savings blew me away. He mentioned one client, who just 18 months after having their lighting switched to LEDs, had made back the money spent on the project. The savings made on their energy bills in that year and a half after completion were more than enough to cover the cost of the project and they’re continuing to save now. The math can’t lie; in replacing your collective of 500watt bulbs with 50-watt LEDs; you’ll be cutting your bills by 90%. It might only be a matter of pennies a day, but in time those savings really add up!

Lights Fit For A Royalty As mentioned earlier, LED Zip has lead lighting projects for some truly amazing clients. Among them are Harvey Nichols, St. James Park, Hampton Court, The BIC, Honda as well as some of the most impressive homes down on the south-coast. But in truth, no project is too big or too small for this team. They welcome commercial and residential projects of all scales. Just image, you could have your kitchen fitted by the same company that worked for Harvey Nics’! Without the eye-watering price tag… If LED Zip has sparked your interest, then get in-touch with them, or pop by their showroom in Kinson to meet the team and find out more! t. 01202 577400 e. info@led-zip.co.uk w. www.led-zip.co.uk

CARO DESIGN

Your New Kitchen Starts Here... Family run Caro Design started off with a simple goal; to offer quality kitchens to the local area at affordable prices. With over 30 years of industry experience they have used their extensive knowledge to source high quality products to offer their customers. A whole range of door styles are available including shaker, glossy, matt and wood effect; in fact they have over 100 doors to choose from providing them with many possibilities to design the ideal kitchen for their customers’ homes. The showroom, based in Oakdale, has seven beautiful kitchen displays and a utility room display that truly reflects what you would find in the

homes around the local area. Each of the displays are priced and range from £2,800.00 to £11,000.00. Rather than using flat pack furniture, their German kitchens arrive preassembled using a glue and dowel system making the units truly long lasting. These rigid units are comprised of 19mm side, top and bottom panels further reinforcing the quality of the product. The ability to have the visible sides of units in a matching finish to the doors does away with the additional panels that a lot of nationwide companies use, giving the kitchen a cleaner and more modern look. Today there are hundreds of appliances available on the market, which can understandably cause confusion about what people want and require for their kitchen. Caro Design take that confusion away by working with one chosen supplier that offer a wide range of high quality and affordable products. As an AEG Premier Partner, Caro Design has access to an exclusive range of appliances that you won’t find in large department stores and offer a 5 year warranty as standard at no extra charge. This includes a self-cleaning, pyrolytic oven for under £450.00! Worktops can have a huge impact on the final look of a kitchen. So Caro Design have laminate, acrylic composite and quartz tops on display in varying thicknesses and styles to showcase the differences between each.

122

A simple process provides a real ease for their customers and there are no

hard sales to be found here. They work alongside their customers to produce beautiful kitchens, transforming the heart of their homes. Thus bringing a kitchen studio experience at kitchen shed prices. Having spent most of his life in the Bournemouth and Poole area, director Richard Rosselli noted that there was a gap in the market for a different kind of kitchen company. “When it comes to buying a new kitchen there are all the big national companies that people think of. What we wanted to achieve is to be able to offer a good quality product at a competitive price and make the experience of buying a kitchen an enjoyable and stress less one! We like to think that we have accomplished that and look forward to the business going from strength to strength”. With German designed collections, value for money solutions and attention to detail, Caro Design’s kitchens offer lasting benefits you’ll enjoy every day.

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.

OUTDOOR LIVING

BESPOKE OUTDOOR FURNITURE At Reformed Plastics we offer a wide range of bespoke outdoor furniture including picnic tables and benches. We are thrilled to introduce our brand new range of Adirondack chairs (pictured right) in a variety of bright colours and styles, perfect for enjoying those sunny days ahead with your loved ones. 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 & 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 & very useful properties & has an infinite range of different uses, some of which being are as decking, fencing, outdoor furniture,

planters,

boardwalks,

landscaping,

bollards, signage & construction etc. The list of possibilities is endless and the long-term advantages it has over traditional materials are staggering! It’s a great investment, as it never needs to be replaced due to its high strength and durability, therefore it quickly pays for itself in the long run. In short, it’s worry free! 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. 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. He discovered that the USA and a few European countries had been recycling and remanufacturing 132

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

NEW AUDI Q5 SUV

134

More comfortable, more agile, more efficient, more protective and better connected - the allnew Audi Q5 SUV makes its UK showroom debut this Spring. Orders can now be placed in the UK ahead of first deliveries during April for Q5 models in either SE, Sport or S line specification, and pricing starts from £37,170 for the 2.0 TDI quattro, rising to £41,040 for the 2.0 TFSI quattro S line. Standard equipment includes Audi Smartphone Interface, Audi parking system and powered tailgate operation, all present right from the SE entry point. Other standard features include drive select, heated front seats, an acoustic windscreen, threezone electronic climate control and pre-sense city collision prevention assistance. The rear seat back of the new Audi Q5 is split into three segments. Longitudinal and seat back angle adjustment are optional. Depending on the rear seat position, the basic volume of the luggage compartment ranges from 550 to 610 litres, 10 litres more than in the previous model. When the rear bench is folded down, this volume grows to 1,550 litres. The new Audi Q5 is launching in the UK with a 2.0 TDI engine producing 187 hp and a 2.0 TFSI engine with an output of 248 hp. This petrol unit is capable of returning up to 40.9 mpg combined, which equates to 157 grams CO2 per km. The efficiency champion is the 2.0 TDI: 56.5mpg and 132g/km.

ROAD TEST: SUBARU FORESTER LINEARTRONIC Subaru is currently best known for its formidable four-wheeldrive models, with its rugged Forester a firm favourite with a very devoted following, writes NICK FLETCHER. The Forester is a practical and well-equipped model noted for its bulletproof reliability and virtually unstoppable offroad capability, yet it still has enough panache and luxury touches to double up as smartly-styled SUV transport. Prices start at £26,180 with all models featuring 4WD, airconditioning, Bluetooth, heated seats and cruise control among standard equipment. The Forester is popular with rural dwellers including the farming community and those needing tough towing capability, and its remarkable off-road credentials mean it can often out-perform rival brands costing almost twice the price. Petrol and diesel engines are available, and manual or CVT auto gearboxes. My test model was a Forester Lineratronic with CVT and 2.0 litre 146 hp petrol engine. Diesel versions are bigger sellars but petrol versions have a performance plus-point – 0-60 mph is just 7.6 seconds - better than some sports cars – and top speed 137 mph. The fuel figure of 25.2 mpg combined is the only downside!

On the tarmac, this Forester displays high levels of grip, minimal cornering pitch and has a firm though still comfortable ride. Acceleration is smooth, the CVT transmission seamless and efficient, and coupled with good steering feedback, gives the driver a feeling of full control. Revised styling a few months ago has given the Forester a classy new look and allows it to compete against SUV rivals such as the Ford Kuga, and Mazda CX-5 which have there own plus-points - but none can compete when it come to off-road capability. Here, the Forester is king. The cabin is well designed, well built and well finished, with user-friendly switchgear and a 7-inch touchscreen housing many of the main controls. Seating is very supportive and there is plenty of occupant space front and rear. Bootspace is 505 litres with all the seats in use and a massive 1,592 litres if the rear seats are folded. Standard kit on the XT Lineartronic test model (£30,995) includes 17-inch alloys, roof rails, power sunroof, protective body cladding, heated leather seats, dual-zone airconditioning, powered tailgate, push-button start, 7 airbags, sat-nav, DAB radio/CD, Subaru Starlink connectivity, Bluetooth, cruise control, trailer stability control and reversing camera.

VAUXHALL CROSSLAND X DEBUT On sale in the UK this summer, the new Vauxhall Crossland X, a SUV which the company says has a ‘Tardis-like’ cabin for maximum practicality and versatility.Prices have not yet been announced. At just 4.21 metres in length the Crossland X is more compact than its Mokka X stablemate, and is 16cm shorter than the Astra Hatch, offering owners greater convenience while driving and manoeuvring in towns and cities. Adding to Crossland X’s urban appeal is an elevated seating position and an overall height, which is raised ten centimetres above the Astra’s. The Crossland X also enters a different SUV class to the Mokka X, with rivals such as the Renault Captur and Peugeot 2008. Features include include a 180-degree panoramic rear-view camera, advanced park assist, forward collision alert with pedestrian detection and autonomous emergency braking, lane departure warning, speed sign recognition and side blind-spot alert. Vauxhall OnStar, as well as IntelliLink infotainment systems, compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto,

keep drivers connected, and an extensive range of petrol/ diesel engines are available with manual and automatic transmissions. Forming the first part of Vauxhall’s ‘Five-Star’ 2017, which will see five major product launches in just one year, the Crossland X will be joined by another newcomer to the ‘X’ family, the larger Grandland X which will compete in the compact SUV class later this year.

NEW HONDA CIVIC

ROAD TEST: NISSAN NAVARA DOUBLE CAB Once, pick-up trucks were just pick-up trucks, rugged workhorses normally seen on building sites. But when double-cab versions began to be produced, the humble pickup developed an exciting new life as a dual-purpose family vehicle, writes NICK FLETCHER. These days pick-ups are produced by several manufacturers but few can match Nissan for pick-up experience - the company has been making them for more than 80 years. Nissan’s latest Navara underlines just how far the double cab pick-up has come – it has a stylish exterior, a luxury interior, high-spec standard equipment and the driving refinement of a family car. It’s not surprising really as most are bought by small businesses who also use them as family transport and thus require all the comfort and technology now common on most cars. Indeed, Nissan estimates 95 per cent of all Navara models will be double cab. Navara prices start at £24,560 (inc.VAT) but the luxury versions cost more – my flagship Tenka all-wheel-drive with auto transmission cost £32,770 (inc.VAT). Standard kit includes 18-inch alloy wheels, roof rails, parking sensors, leather seats, 4 powered windows, air-conditioning, hill-start

assist, auto lights and wipers, limited slip differential, cruise control with speed limiter, radio/CD/USB/AUX and Bluetooth, sat-nav and 7-inch HD touchscreen. That all sounds like the spec of a premium model, and the similarity doesn’t end there because on the tarmac, despite its large overall footprint, the Navara has much of the refinement and road manners of a crossover model. And in the cabin, the Tekna’s leather seats and classy dashboard styling that makes you think you in in something quite superior. With four doors, access to the rear seats is easy and there is plenty of head and legroom.The front seats are very comfortable and you get a commanding driving position. Underway the 187 hp 2.3 litre diesel engine is remarkably smooth and quiet, and gives a nippy 0-60 mph time of 10.8 seconds. Top speed is 112 mph and the combined fuel figure is 41 mpg. Ride quality is exceptionally good for this type of vehicle, thanks largely to independent multi-link rear suspension instead of traditional leaf-springs. The steering is wellweighted and responsive and the cornering composure very good, though obviously not quite up to car standards.

Honda’s new Civic will be on sale in the UK in late March, priced from £18,235 and with top-spec versions costing up to £27,480. With the arrival of the new 10th generation Civic and in line with the current trend towards smaller, more efficient powertrains, Honda has launched two new petrol engines; a 1.0 litre three cylinder which produces 129 hp and a more powerful 1.5 litre four cylinder which delivers 179 hp. And as well as pricing, Honda has also released residual values for the new Civic ahead of its UK launch. The Civic has received a further boost with residual values predicted to be among the best in its class. Industry experts and residual value setters CAP forecast the British-built Civic will hold up to 37% of its value after 36 months and 60,000 miles.That’s an increase of 9% on the previous generation Civic and puts the newcomer well ahead of many of its key competitors. The news comes just weeks after CAP predicted two of Honda’s newest and most popular models – the Jazz city car and HR-V crossover – would outperform all forecasts and achieve marketleading residual value levels.

MUSSO PICK-UP SsangYong’s new Musso pick-up range has the lowest prices, high level of standard equipment, best 5-year limitless mileage warranty in the industry and highly competitive leasing options, says SsangYong CEO Paul Williams. Powered by a 2.2 litre 175hp Euro 6 turbo-diesel engine, the new Musso pick-up is designed to appeal to those who need a competitively priced work truck and the practicality of 4-wheel drive, he says. Fitted with multi-link rear suspension and progressive rear coil springs - the only twin-cab pick-up at this price to offer such a system, Musso gives a car-like ride, even while carrying a tonne weight on its load deck which will also take a Euro pallet. There are two models in the range. The SE is priced from £15,995 ex VAT, the EX which features black 18” alloy wheels, roof rails, front LED daytime running lights, leather heated front seats, power operated driver’s seat, automatic air conditioning, automatic headlights, rain sensing wipers, 7-inch touchscreen RDS radio with iPod and Bluetooth from £17,995 ex VAT, or with six speed automatic transmission, £18,995 ex VAT.

THE COTTONWOOD BOUTIQUE HOTEL PRESENTS…

THE CHOCOLATE BUFFET It is said that you can’t buy happiness; well I disagree. In fact, for as little as £19.95 you can buy as much happiness as one can possibly enjoy. Our team was lucky enough to attend the debut of the Cottonwood’s latest experience. We were unsure and excited for what lay ahead, well, who wouldn’t be with an event entitled ‘Chocolate Buffet?!’. We waited with bated breath behind the pink velvet curtains. “Two more minutes” said a passing crew member. Almost every local media company – present company included – was photographing the event. As members of staff whizzed in and out of the guarded room, we were itching to catch a glimpse of what was inside, our mouths watering, our imaginations were running wild and the anticipation was too much! Tarynn (the hotel’s marketing guru) could see the eagerness taking hold and soon after we were ushered into the room behind the pink velvet curtains… so this is what heaven looks like! A long table, dressed with a white linen tablecloth took pride of place in the centre of the room, on it; all kinds of chocolate delights. Two chocolate fountains stood at either end, one Belgian milk chocolate and one dyed-pink white chocolate, surrounded by fruits, marshmallows and all kinds of sundries for dipping. We got closer for a better view; the silky chocolate cascaded endlessly down the podium, the flow only to be broken by zealous skewering. It was evident that this was of a superior quality, rich, aromatic and smooth, it was the perfect first course.

Before the feasting could really begin, we got to hear a little more about how it all came to be, from entrepreneur come chocolatier, Gerry Wilton, otherwise known affectionately to many of his friends and guests as the ‘Willy Wonker of the South Coast’!

A man of many talents, Gerry has been leading the chocolate event scene since 2004. He was partaking in a wedding exhibition when something caught his eye. It was the UK’s first ever cascading, chocolate fountain. Immediately inspired, Gerry placed an order for 10 machines, which he would hire out at all nature of events, including several celebrity weddings. You remember the union of famed reality stars Katie Price and Peter Andre? Well, Gerry supplied the fountain at their wedding. His business went from success to success, but something even bigger was around the corner. In 2007 Gerry opened ‘The Chocolate Boutique’, the first chocolate themed hotel, right here in Bournemouth. It was here he mastered the art of ‘chocolate entertainment’, hosting numerous parties, occasions and events and now he hopes to create something even more special with his signature chocolate banquet. Speaking of which, let us return…

cakes, but this was a winner! Sugary-sweet baked dough, with a healthy amount of warm white and dark chocolate chips; utterly divine.

Spread across the table were all kinds of indulgent delicacies; Cookies, decadent cakes, brownies – it was a sweet tooth’s heaven. Among the treats were some truly stand out dishes. A personal favourite of mine had to be the ‘White Chocolate and Baileys Cheesecake’. Ordinarily I’m a milk-dark chocolate fanatic, but given the alcoholic twist I just had to try it. Every element was perfect; this was not your run-of-the-mill cheesecake. The base was buttery and crumbled on first bite, the side, coated in chocolate naturally, was that extra special crunch I was looking for and oh the filling – what can I say? Such creamy and indulgent textures and flavours, with that distinct Irish cream accent. I could go on…

With my mind and stomach battling it out for control of the rest of me, I decided it was time to call it a day. I rolled back to the office in my euphoric state and reflected on my first chocolate buffet experience. I was thoroughly impressed and had mentally begun planning my next visit. I recommend this event for all kinds of occasions; weddings, birthdays, date nights, you name it. Don’t miss their first official event on Sunday the 12th February and get in-touch to save your spot!

A surprise even to myself was my fondness for the cookies. Arguably one of the simpler dishes in comparison to the profiterole-towers or the complex

Another exciting edition was the ‘Dark Chocolate and Ameretto Cheesecake’ (anyone noticing a theme with my selection process?). Rather more like a rich mousse, this sinful cake enveloped my mouth, coating every taste bud with sweet almond savor. A single blackberry perched on top of each slice, making for a welcome zing between mouthfuls. Fearing my appetite would waver I decided to go back for just a few more things before it had a chance to realise what I was up to. I filled my plate with a chocolate brownie, a dark chocolate and espresso mousse and a coffee to sip simultaneously. What bliss, what splendor, if only everyday was a chocolate buffet.

ASK THE EXPERT...

TRACY CULLEN AT COASTAL SKINTHETICS Tracy Cullen talks to HOUSE Magazine readers about the number of local treatments now available to help you look and feel younger. Tracy has performed thousands of treatments and has had the privilege of working with a number of leading plastics and cosmetic consultant surgeons. Over the past decade, there has been dramatic increase in nonsurgical aesthetic treatments, with focus on achieving ideals whilst maintaining a youthful appearance. Whilst the media show models having fuller lips, the creation of youth and beauty, especially with the trend for full pout, is becoming increasingly desirable. As we age, so do the lips. The lips begin to thin out, tiny vertical lines appear and the grace of the Cupid’s bow begins to flatten. Those born with thinner lips may simply wish a more defined Cupid’s bow with greater volume to the lip to balance other facial features. It’s so important to find the right practitioner, I can’t tell you how many cases I’ve seen where the work clearly wasn’t carried out by a professional. Many undergo ‘crash-courses’ in non-surgical treatments, supposedly qualifying them – but in reality they simply shouldn’t be carrying out procedures. The Save Face register (which we are registered with) allows the public to check their practitioner is accredited and registered. Which means safer, trustworthy treatments for all! Traditionally fillers are injected into the lip border, which can result the lip look unnatural and overfilled and can turn the lip inward creating a bulging upper lip. It is a problem that can dissuade patients to pursue the treatment.

In order to deliver a more

natural-result, I use a combined technique that I have adopted over the years, using Hyaluronic acid to provide a natural looking pout without the “trout”!

Westbourne Dental Practice Dr Hamid Kolahy Cosmetic Restorative and Preventive Dental Care ••••• Emergency out of hours and weekend appointments available •••••

Where possible I accentuate the curve of the cupid’s bow and the outer most part of the lip to create a rolling, lifting effect (this portrays the pouty sexy lip) defining youth and a the classic glamorous look. This technique also addresses lipstick lines, whilst lifting the mouth corners and enhancing the elegance of youth. In addition to lips, she offers a wide range of another non-surgical youth-giving treatments, including wrinkle reduction, face-lifting, fillers and more. If you have a question about any of the treatments please call or text Tracy on 07828 617807 or free phone 0800 6124 468.

UNWANTED HAIR GONE FOREVER... WITH THE WORLD’S LEADING LASER TECHNOOLOGY Situated within the popular award winning Chic Beauty Salon in Winton, Bournemouth. Making unwanted hair a thing of the past with IPL treatment at The Chic Laser Clinic Unwanted hair can be inconvenient, irritating or embarrassing. You want a permanent solution that’s fast, safe cost effective, and uses the latest technology so you can look and feel your best. We understand that when you have unwanted body hair, you want to find a solution that’s effective and easy. Our laser therapists are highly experienced and will be happy to answer any questions you may have. The usual methods of removing your unwanted hair are a real chore. Shaving, waxing or using tweezers takes up precious time and can be very uncomfortable. Other methods can remove the hair for you but need to be repeated on a regular basis. We have an alternative.

What is IPL hair removal? The InteliBrite FLO IPL machine can treat most areas of the body in both women and men, including the face. It treats a much larger area of skin per light pulse than laser hair treatment. In the vast majority of cases a series of treatments will permanently reduce the unwanted hair from the target area. On average we recommend a course of 6-8 treatments. Our methods are proven and safe. All hair removal is carried out by a highly trained laser therapist who is committed to providing you with the very highest levels of service and care. Treatments start as little as £50 per area, per session, we offer 10% discount on course bookings and payment plans are available.

Hailed as one of the best musicals of all time, Blood Brothers, written by award-winning playwright Willy Russell has triumphed across the globe. Scooping up no fewer than four awards for best musical in London and seven Tony Award nominations on Broadway, Blood Brothers is simply unmissable and unbeatable. Blood Brothers tells the captivating and moving story of twin boys separated at birth, only to be reunited by a twist of fate and a mother’s haunting secret. The memorable score includes A Bright New Day, Marilyn Monroe and the emotionally charged hit Tell Me It’s Not True. When Mrs Johnstone, a young mother, is deserted by her husband and left to her own devices to provide for seven hungry children she takes a job as a housekeeper in order to make ends meet. It is not long before her brittle world crashes around her when she discovers herself to be pregnant yet again – this time with twins! In a moment of weakness and desperation, she enters a secret pact with her employer which leads inexorably to the show’s shattering climax. A sensational cast, incredible show stopping music, remarkable staging and five star performances make Blood Brothers an enthralling night of entertainment.
