TRANSFORM YOUR CONSERVATORY IN LESS THAN A DAY WITH GREEN SPACE LTD’S INSULATED ROOF PANELS

The latest news storys in your area.

LADIES WHO LUNCH RAISE OVER £2,000 FOR LOCAL CHARITY Diverse Abilities, Dorset’s disability charity, recently raised over £2,000 at its recent Ladies Lunch at the Italian Villa. The ‘new year, new you’ lunch saw 80 local women enjoy a two-course meal and heard from the event’s guest speaker, awardwinning nutritionist and businesswomen Barbara Cox, who demonstrated inspirational healthy recipes and shared her tips for great sleep, an energised day and healthy diet. Guests were also able to try Barbara’s personal blend of chai tea and a new healthy vodka cocktail. The ladies were also treated to a goodie bag full of item, kindly donated by Lush, Dorset Cereals, Mr Lees Noodles and flowers from Tesco Express in Broadstone. For more information regarding Diverse Abilities, please visit www. diverseabilities.org.uk or call 01202 718266. If you’d like to attend a future Ladies Lunch, please contact Vikki.slade@ diverseabilities.org.uk

Conservatories are usually constructed to add extra living space to a home. A lot of people find however, that from mid-November through until about mid-March, their conservatory is just too cold to pleasantly sit in without spending a small fortune on heating it and then from mid-June through until about the end of September, that same space is unbearably hot during the day. So what’s the answer? In 2010 the planning laws were relaxed and in the majority of cases, you can now fit a solid roof to your conservatory without planning permission. This means better insulation, keeping the room warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer, and a room that you can use all year round. There are a few different options to fitting a solid roof on your conservatory, most of which require major upheaval and disruption. There is, however, now an alternative option that will transform your room from an unusable space to a beautiful room in less than one day! Green Space Ltd is a family run company. Thye specialise in transforming conservatories. Their roof panels are

lightweight and offer eight times better insulation than a polycarbonate roof. With U-values of 0.29, they will keep your conservatory at a comfortable temperature all year round. What’s more, the panels are manufactured to measure off site, so installation generally takes less than a day, and they always aim to ensure that your roof conversion is as non-disruptive as possible. Green Space Ltd are the sole supplier of this system in the South, their system is compatible with most conservatories, old and new plus it comes with a ten year guarantee. Your conservatory that was too cold to eat your breakfast in the morning, could be lovely and cosy by dinner time. Transform your conservatory in one day - contact them today on 0800 65 25 157 or find them online at www.greenspaceconservatories.co.uk and see what a difference a day makes! Customer Quote: “I can honestly say that the Green Space roof has totally transformed a pretty useless conservatory into a useful additional room, come cold winter or hot summers day. Well done. Would we recommend to others? Definitely!”- Mrs Wendy Thomas, Dorset.

WEST DORSET: MORE THAN A GLORIOUS LOCATION FOR BROADCHURCH As series three of the popular crime drama, Broadchurch, returns to our screens, West Dorset will be in the spotlight once again. The dramatic cliffs of West Bay, just south of Bridport, provide the stunning setting for the series, but the seaside town is not unused to media attention: the 2015 TV version of Thomas Hardy’s Far From The Madding Crowd was also filmed in West Bay as well as around Sherborne, Eype, Durdle Door and Beaminster. The county’s star status will be further showcased in the summer, when the epic war thriller, Dunkirk, is set to hit the big screen. And later in the year, Chesil Beach, near Weymouth, will take centre stage in the adaptation of Ian McEwan’s novel, On Chesil Beach. Simon Neville-Jones of Savills Wimborne said: “There is invariably a spike in interest when these beautiful locations are on our screens, but West Dorset has always had a strong following, with price increases of 24 per cent over the last 10 years. “People move to the area for two main reasons: schools and lifestyle change. The area has some of the best schooling in the country. Savills research found 79 per cent of pupils in West Dorset are in top state schools and independents, ahead of traditionally popular places like Kent and the Home Counties. “Other picturesque small towns include Wareham, Beaminster and Sherborne, arguably the county’s most perfect town, boasting a good choice of period and newer properties.” Savills is currently marketing a range of properties in West Dorset, for more information, contact Savills Wimborne on 01202 856800.

our part the world is coming back to life after hibernation through the winter. “For us human beings too there may be a sense of new beginnings and opening to the promise and beauty of spring. This is often reflected in our houses and homes by opening windows, spring cleaning and generally have a good clear out. This is also a popular time to have your home blessed, acknowledging the autumn and winter months, looking forward to the promise of spring and summer.”

InsigniaBlinds THE BETTER BLIND COMPANY

Installing window blinds is one of the easiest and most effective ways to instantly change the appearance and practical use of a room in your home... However, why should you choose blinds over other options like curtains? Whether you want to install blinds for practical or aesthetic reasons, here are the key advantages of installing blinds in your home. Control Light and Heat Entering a Room or Conservatory Window blinds provide you with more control over the amount of light entering the room because you can cover the entire window or just part of it according to your own needs. This could be ideal for a room where you have a home theatre or in your bedroom where you don’t want any light to wake you up in the morning. Countless Styles, Colours & Patterns Blinds come in an endless variety of styles, colours and patterns, allowing you to create the perfect look in your kitchen, living room, or bathroom. All blinds purchased from Insignia Blinds are child safe compliant. Wide Variety of Materials The variety of materials that blinds come in allows you to choose the blind that is most suitable for you in terms of both price and style. For example, if your living room contains wooden furniture, you can complement it by installing wooden blinds or faux wood instead to keep the costs down. You then have plastic blinds, bamboo blinds, aluminium blinds, and other materials to choose from to ensure that you can always find the right blinds for any room in your home. Enjoy Complete Privacy Many blinds provide you with a level of privacy, with light control that you cannot get from other options such as curtains. Easy to Maintain One of the best things about window blinds is that they are very easy to maintain. Many blinds

simply require a quick wipe with a damp cloth from time to time to remove the dust. Compared to curtains, which need to be washed every once in a while, and blinds start to look like the most convenient option. In addition, they are also long lasting, meaning you won’t have to replace them until you decide you are ready for a change. Extend your home and seasons Insignia Blinds offer an extensive range of awnings and pergolas to both extend and protect your home during the warmer months. Awnings and pergolas are a convenient way to extend the use of the patio or deck for leisure, as well as protecting furnishings from harmful sun rays. Insignia Blinds have a range of awnings and pergolas to suit every budget or requirement with professional advice and installation included.

Find the Perfect Blinds, Shutters or Awnings for Your Home Whatever style you have in mind for the rooms in your home, consider installing window blinds. Not only can they become a unique feature of the room, they also don’t have to cost the earth. Established for nearly 20 years, Insignia Blinds specify, custom design, supply and install great value, quality internal blinds and exterior shading solutions throughout Dorset and Hampshire. Whatever your requirements you can be assured that Insignia blinds will provide a custom made solution to meet your requirements – Don’t pay anything more or settle for anything else than blinds from Insignia Blinds!

ASK THE EXPERT...

Removal Quote or Estimate? Steve Webber, Director of Maidmans Moving & Storage in Poole, has many years’ experience in the moving and storage industry. He offers the following advice about requesting a quote or an estimate when assessing your removals costs. Steve says: “Maidmans always sends a trained professional to provide an in home consultation in order to assess as accurately as possible what is required”. Steve advises the following should be considered when a quote is given: • The volume of goods to be moved. • The access to the property and to ascertain things like how many flights of stairs there are inside the home etc. • Are there are any particularly difficult items such as antiques, large mirrors, pianos etc. needing special care. • Which items you want to be professionally packed and whether packing materials are required. Following the consultation, we supply a detailed written quotation, showing what is included or excluded in the move. This is a fixed price that can’t be changed once accepted by the customer. A quotation should always outline exactly what is covered and anything subject to additional charges, so you will know exactly what the final bill will be. An estimate is only an educated guess at what a removal cost is likely to be but it is not binding and will not cover any unforeseen developments. You could find the removal invoice is far more than you had expected.”

HOME BLESSINGS WITH CREATIVE MINISTRY Rev Gary Pulman offers a modern open hearted and inclusive service for our journey through life “Home sweet home”. 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. It doesn’t matter if it’s large or small a flat or a mansion, if we are lucky enough to be in the place we call home, it can bring a feeling of belonging, comfort and safety and the energy within it has been known to influence behaviour, emotions and overall well-being. 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 • After a period of ill health, depression, arguments of just bad luck • If you know that the land or building has violent or sad history

How is the home blessed? In consultation with you I may use a number of different methods to cleanse, protect and bless your home that blend with any religious or spiritual beliefs you may hold. This can take from one to three hours,

Steve said: “It is always best to use a reputable and experienced BAR member removal company, to provide a written quotation outlining everything which will be provided for your home move. This is much safer than getting an estimate, which may cost more than budgeted”.

ASK THE EXPERT...

EMMA CROWLEY FROM BRUCE LANCE

ASK THE EXPERT...

Making alterations and improvements to a property can seem an attractive proposition to homeowners and potential purchasers alike but, if you don’t follow the correct procedures, they may lose their shine when you come to sell the property. Emma Crowley (above left) from Bruce Lance in Poole explains how to go about it.

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.

Planning an extension or any other type of home improvement is an exciting business but, before you get too far down the line, it is essential to check out the regulations relevant to the work you are planning. Failure to adhere to these may cause significant delay and expense when you come to sell the property.

This issue, Russell asks, “How do I decide between agents to sell my flat? I’m thinking I should go with the highest valuation as it is £30,000 more than the others!” Dear Russell, As tempting as it may be to automatically go with the highest valuation, take a step back and look at the offers in front of you. What fee are they charging? Do I like my agent and can I see myself working with them? Have they come recommended? Do they have good reviews? It is a long standing technique of some, let’s say, slightly unscrupulous companies, to lure you in with the promise of a sky high return on your property, sign you up to a contract, only to find this price begins to edge down week after week of little interest and invariably ends up in the same ball park as what the other agents valued the property at originally. On the surface this isn’t the end of the world, however, buyers can get easily fatigued at seeing the same property on the market and will raise questions when the price keeps reducing – even if it is a property they were initially keen on. A far more productive and effective approach is to price a property appropriately and at a value which can realistically be achieved – this way potential buyers are under no illusions and can easily find your property on online searches and you the seller avoid any undue disappointment. A great approach is to ask a number of agents around to value your property – whilst none of them have crystal balls and will not be able to guarantee a certain price, it will give you the opportunity to compare. If one valuation is wildly more than the others this may raise a warning sign to you to ask questions as to why this may be. At Foxes Sales & Lettings, every valuation is performed with honesty and openness and based on what a property is likely to sell for in the current market. Please contact the sales team to book your free no obligation valuation and see what you think. 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!

Guidance on whether planning consent is necessary can be found on the Planning Portal of your Local Authority. If you are still unsure about whether consent is required for the particular works you are planning, you should contact your Local Authority direct for clarification. Permitted development rights have extended the scope of alterations that can be made to a property without obtaining planning consent, but these rights have been removed in certain areas by Local Authorities, so you do need to check. It will also be helpful to a future sale if you save any communications you receive from the Local Authority and store them with your property deeds. Building regulations are equally important, regulating a property’s standard of construction. You may well find that a proposed alteration is exempt from planning permission but does require building regulation approval. Again, this can be checked with your Local Authority. If you proceed with alterations without obtaining the necessary planning and building regulation approvals, you are likely to run into problems when you come to sell your property. Following these procedures may mean that it takes you longer to build your extension but it will save you time, money and unnecessary stress when you wish to sell. If you have not obtained the appropriate permissions, a future buyer will need to consider whether there are any structural issues with the alterations and also whether the council could use enforcement action against them in respect of the work that has been carried out. Retrospective consents and approvals can be applied for but this is often a time-consuming business that could put an agreed sale at risk of falling through. Depending on the nature and age of the unauthorised alterations, an indemnity policy may be the best solution. A solicitor is the best person to talk to about this. If you have carried out works to your property without following the correct procedures, or are thinking of purchasing a property that does not have the necessary consents, then please contact myself or Sarah at Bruce Lance solicitors and we will be happy to advise. Emma Crowley is a residential conveyancing executive at Bruce Lance in Poole. You can contact her on 01202 679379 or at www.brucelance.co.uk

ASK THE EXPERT ABOUT...

LED DOWNLIGHTS I thought that it would be worth writing a piece just entirely dedicated to downlights as they are probably the most commonly used light fittings in modern homes. I will start with replacement lamps using your existing fittings. The old Halogen lamps mainly came in two forms the low voltage 12Vac MR16 type (two sharp pointed pins on the base) and the high voltage 240Vac GU10 (two mushroom shaped pins, push and twist). The MR16 was the brighter of the two lamps at around 800 lumens at 50 Watts with the GU10 around 500 lumens at 50W. in the new LED versions of these lamps the MR16 is no brighter than the GU10 and it is for this reason that we would recommend that where possible convert to GU10. The reasoning for this is that it doesn’t need a separate transformer so one less component to fail especially if reusing the existing old ac transformers that are probably nearing the end of their life. These old transformers may not like the low wattage LED, this may also cause problems when dimming. It is quite a simple job to convert, although this should be done by a qualified electrician, this will involve removing the transformer and replacing the lampholder. When buying the new LED lamps go for the best that you can afford with a reputable name and a good warranty period, at least two years. Check the lumen output, a minimum of 400 is a good benchmark. Check the lighting colour, this may be stated in degrees Kelvin with 6000K a cool white and 3000K a warm white. If using dimmer switches check that the lamp is dimmable, the cheaper ones are sometimes not, you may need to convert the dimmer module to a low wattage Led compatible one, we can help you with this. The alternative is to buy a complete LED downlight module these are generally a brighter option and have good dimming curves without flicker. The good ones use a COB (Chip On Board) LED these offer a single light source without multiple individual LEDs and are virtually indistinguishable from the halogen lamps. They will be fire rated and often IP rated as well (necessary for bathrooms) as they will be a complete fitting this is your chance to select the bezel colour of your choice and adjustable in direction if required, this is often termed as gimballed. A more expensive option than a replacement lamp but generally better performance and lifetimes. Note here if going this route check the hole size in your ceiling against the cutout required for the new fitting. If in any doubt pop in to see us and we can go through all the options and show you samples of each to help you make your choice.

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.

72

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

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.

BUSINESS PROFILE

TEA WITH...

QUAY HOLIDAYS Holiday letting comes of age We caught up with business partners Helen and Duncan Challis, to find out more about opportunities waiting to be seized upon in the holiday lettings industry. For those of you who haven’t heard, recent tax changes have suddenly given the industry fresh impetus; so here’s the low down:

market. Some landlords like to let their property to a residential tenant over the winter months and flip to more lucrative holiday lets in the summer. Whatever their situation, having a broad range of services means we can work with landlords to tailor the best possible solution for their property.”

Helen and Duncan launched their business, ‘Quay Holidays’ in 2006 off the back of roaring success renting out their own property. Other owners caught wind of their triumph and soon those with properties to let were entrusting them into their capable hands. With a real gap in the market for luxury selfcatering properties and demand for their portfolio of properties growing, the couple decided to set-up business in a small shop, just off Poole Quay. Five years down the line and following a move to larger, purpose-built offices in Orchard Plaza, they set-up sister company ‘Quay Living’, the estate agency. It allowed them to offer a wider range of property services, fulfilling an aspiration to satisfy clients’ desires for a comprehensive ‘one-stop property service’, covering everything from short and long term lettings, sales, property management and investments. The group currently manages a substantial portfolio of over 200 properties in and around Poole and Bournemouth.

Quay Holidays is unique in Poole in offering such a breadth of services. Whilst the majority of competitors act purely as booking agents, Quay offers a comprehensive management service, and they take their job very seriously; “We’re the complete antithesis of a thirdparty booking agent; we keep everything in house. Our cleaners and handymen are directly employed and our plumbers, engineers and electricians are trusted partners. They receive regular training, to maintain high-levels of service across the board”, Helen explained.

“We wanted to create a flexible service; a ‘one-stop-shop’ for all things property…to mirror the ever-changing

78

A Smart Investment “Recent tax changes will encourage more landlords to move into holiday lets”, Duncan said. “Poole and Bournemouth are ideal locations for holiday letting”, he continued, “and as of April this year the Government are reducing tax allowances on buy-to-let mortgage interest, so that by 2020 you’ll only be allowed to claim tax relief at the basic rate. Landlords with high loan-to-value mortgages could find that, once they’ve paid the tax, their net income from their property ‘investment’ could actually be negative”. Buy-to-let landlords in

Duncan & Helen Challis

this situation will have fairly limited options at this point; sell up, or transfer the property into a limited company (which raises further tax issues), put in additional equity, or alternatively come to see Quay Holidays… In contrast to buy-to-let, mortgage interest on holiday letting is still fully allowable against tax. This is because holiday letting is classified by HMRC as a business, due to the level of work required to maintain it. But for many landlords the option of running their own holiday let is impractical and incredibly time consuming; time they really don’t have – which is where Quay comes in. Peak income potential for holiday lets is often four times what can be made from long-term letting, but many landlords are deterred by the need to manage bookings, clean and service the property, pay the additional costs, and face the risk of lower cash flow during quieter seasons.

Quay Holidays uses a wide range of third-party portals to maximize holiday bookings and consistently achieves circa 70% occupancy across the whole portfolio. By using their own staff, ensuring each property is maintained to a 5-star standard, happy guests keep coming back time and time again. Quay Holidays are currently seeking high-quality properties to add to their expanding portfolio for summer 2017, so if you have a home with holiday letting potential, do get in-touch for a no-obligation chat to find out how they can help!

From April, higher-rate mortgage interest tax relief on buy-to-let properties is being withdrawn. But did you know that holiday-let properties are unaffected? If you own a residential investment with a mortgage, it could pay you to move into holiday letting.

TALKING BUSINESS

LANDLORDS...

PRIMOVE IS HERE TO SAVE YOU! It’s a tricky time for Landlords, what with ever-changing tax laws and evolving rules and regulations – not to mention that landlords are not the most respected people in the country, due to some unscrupulous landlords ripping off tenants. In the midst of an unclear market, the added pressure of electing a trustworthy letting agent is just another concern that you don’t have time for. Introducing ‘PRIMOVE’, the new no-nonsense agent here to make things that a lot easier for landlords, because PRIMOVE was setup by landlords for landlords. We sat down with founder ‘Moe Kochar’ to find out more about their unique service and it’s major shake-up of the property lettings industry. What led you to create this unique product? Having been (and still am) a landlord myself I got to understand the hiccups and frustrations that come with renting out ones property. Having built a sizable portfolio, I recognised the need for a lettings agent to ease

the workload, but like many other landlords I couldn’t help but feel as though I was being diddled. I couldn’t get to grips with the unfair fees and commission on my rental income and hidden costs for what seemed like such menial tasks. Why did I need to pay over the odds for tasks that required little, if any, effort on the agent’s part? So I started taking on more of these tasks myself and setup a working group with other local landlords and we focused our full attention on getting to know the lettings industry inside and out. What I learnt was fascinating! All the time I had been paying over the odds for searches, paperwork, admin etc… that in reality cost next to nothing for the agent to do. Then it struck me; with the number of private landlords out there and landlords who have no choice but to rent via the normal agents, there must be others who have suffered from the peril of exorbitant fees and commissions? That’s when I decided to set-up PRIMOVE LETTINGS.

Landlords we are here to save you and offer a fair and superior alternative to the normal high-street lettings agent.

My intention was to create an honest agency – one that charged fair fees, appropriate for the work being done and one who could also guarantee the best customer service. To help those seeking to reap the benefits of their investment, without every penny of the return going on bills from their agent.

122

Landlords you now have a better alternative to the average agent and like I said PRIMOVE is here to save all landlords.


TALKING BUSINESS

The upcoming banning of tenant fees is good news for tenants, but letting agents say they will pass the costs to landlords which is unfair to them. PRIMOVE will not pass these costs onto the landlord and will also return your properties in a better condition, so long as we fully manage your portfolio, no matter how big or small. I hear you have just set-up a new office? Yes! We are at 691 Wimborne Road in Winton. The space is really coming together and we are proud to announce that our doors are now open. As a goodwill gesture, we will also be offering the first 50 landlords up to £3000 to spend on their buy to let property*. £3000 to spend on my property as a gift! How? We are working in partnership with private investors who, like PRIMOVE want to help landlords and tenants and to no longer pay unfair high fees, we are also working with the local council with a kind of ‘Help to Let’ scheme. We have been chosen as a preferred letting agent to guide landlords in spending the grant correctly and ultimately use it to further their investment in their properties. This will in turn yield a better return on the property.

Do you have any closing words for our readers? Just to say that we have an open door policy. We welcome all kinds of enquiries and we hope that we can help landlords and tenants to enjoy the full benefits of letting a property with an agent who has their best interests at heart. We are here to save landlords. We also offer free surgeries to landlords, to help them with problems in renting out their properties and to tenants in getting them the best deal available. Landlords we are here to save you and offer a fair and superior alternative to the normal high-street lettings agent. If PRIMOVE has captured your interest, then get in touch, or visit them at their brand-new office in Winton. t. 01202 800606 e. info@primovelettings.co.uk w. www.primovelettings.co.uk a. 691 Wimborne Road, Winton, Bournemouth, BH9 2AT *Terms and conditions apply

Can you give us an insight into your fees? Sure, at PRIMOVE you only pay an annual fee of £360 for a studio/1 bed property, £460 for a 2 bed property, £560 for a 3 bed property, up to £660 for a 4 bed property. This includes a fully managed service. Any properties other than the norm (HMO’s, student lets, etc.), we can offer a tailor-made package to suit the need. There are no additional or hidden fees, even if the tenancy changes during the year. Not only do we offer the best fair fees, we also guarantee the best customer service. With us, 5 days* after we are instructed to manage your property it will be let with tenants that meet your requirements. If we don’t, we will start paying you the full market rent from day 6, so you will never have any lengthy void periods. We guarantee rent at full market value, unlike other lettings agents who only offer 75% of the full market value That seems too good to be true, how are you able to do this? Well, as the demand for property has never been greater than at any other time, any honest, fair lettings agent would have your properties let out within 5 days. Unfortunately, many letting agents leave your properties void because they can earn high, nonrefundable fees from multiple tenant applications. Your property left void longer makes them financially better off, leaving you as a landlord worse off.

Sharon Canning

WHEN IT HURTS TO SAY GOODBYE This month I am saying goodbye to an employee who has been with me for 8 years. I wouldn’t normally make a big thing like writing an article on someone leaving, however, Gina is kind of special. Gina (pictured below), came to me at the age of 16. During those 8 years, she left for 18 months to work with the homeless and has also taken a sabbatical for 3 months in 2014 to travel. She has helped raise money for various charities through Move On including events like skydiving. Coming to Move On from such a young age, means her in-house training has meant the ethos of Move On in maintaining excellent attention to detail and ensuring our landlords, tenants, vendors and purchasers are given the best service. Gina has been a fantastic ambassador for Move On. Countless times, I have been told how professional Gina is and how proud I should be of her, of which I have always been. Being a similar age to my youngest daughter, I have felt more than an employer to Gina. I have watched her grow in confidence and be who she is today. So today, I am sad that Gina is leaving us, however, like a mother (because this is how I feel), I must let Gina go and move on to the next stage of her life.

We provide a FREE LANDLORD HEALTH CHECK, with advice and guidance to ensure you’re doing things right.

Gina is moving on to work with her partner, (whom I introduced as a blind date) as he develops his business in the property developing world. So, on behalf of all the girls at Move On, past and present, we wish her all the best in her next adventure.

Are you a compliant landlord? With a seemingly relentless raft of new legislation affecting the private rented sector over the last year or so, as a landlord its vital to ensure you are fully compliant and are not in danger of being tripped up by something that could prove costly. For example: • Have you issued your tenants with a “How to Rent” guide? • Have you carried out Right to Rent checks? • Was your tenant issued with the relevant deposit protection scheme rules?

TALKING BUSINESS

TALKING BUSINESS WITH...

TP SHERWOOD Paving the way since 1988 A driveway is to a house, what an invitation is to an event; an introduction is to a song, or an appetizer to a main course. A driveway, like all of these things, sets the tone for a property and therefore should not be neglected. There is a common disconnection between one’s home and one’s driveway, but there shouldn’t be. After all, what’s the point in having a show home if the path to it is unsightly? Enter: TP Sherwood!

career change would stick. A mere few months into his new job and he was getting offers left, right and center. His projects included the well-known ‘Tower Park’ in Poole, not to mention several renowned supermarkets up and down the country, but despite the grandeur of these projects he longed to plant his feet firmly and solely in the local community. So, in 1996 he decided to set-up his own company.

We met with ‘Trevor’, owner of family-run business TP Sherwood to find out more about them and their work.

A Family-Run Business

Meet; Trevor Sherwood Trevor began his paving career in 1987. Having come from a civil engineering background he was no stranger to masonry, but even Trevor couldn’t fathom how much this

Wanting to be a part of the local community Trevor set-up shop in Poole. Filled with new ideas and skills gained from previous work, Trevor took to the task with ease. TP Sherwood is and remains, a family business and its heritage continues with the employment of Trevor’s son, to work with him and carry on the company’s lineage.

We always advise clients to go and see our projects that are two to three years old and see just how well they’ve lasted. Most jobs look pretty when they’re done, but it’s about the longevity of the work that people forget to consider.

TALKING BUSINESS

Traders You Can Trust After months of stringent checks and thorough examination, TP Sherwood is proud to announce that they have just joined the list of ‘Which? Trusted Traders’. It’s not the first time that they have been the recipients of endorsement; a few years ago they were dubbed as an official approved installer of ‘Brett Paving’, which they continue to vet and check to this day. As gratifying as their prestigious approval is, TP Sherwood still consider their customers to be the deciders of their craftsmanship, which is why they rarely take a deposit. Payment for their projects are usually settled 7 days after the work is complete and not until both parties have agreed that the job is of a satisfactory quality.

“From the moment I spoke to him I felt he knew what he was talking about. The team duly arrived and within 4 days I had a new drive, the men worked so hard and so professionally and the end product is fantastic! I cannot praise him or his team enough and highly recommend them!” (Testimonial; Mr. L) We really could go on about this wonderful independent business, but the results speak for themselves. Take a look at their website or get in touch for more information.

Longevity Is Our Aim In terms of what’s “trending”, driveways have been through a lot. Cast your mind back to the millennium and it was all about an organic scattered pebble look, then there was the great ‘Crazy Paving’ era and then the more recent ‘Resin’ reign. But among the fads the slabs and traditional brickwork that were laid all of those years ago, remain standing (in a matter of words). TP Sherwood take pride in their work, after all it’s the most physical version of a CV you could ever have. Every project is a shining example of their work and a testament of their skill. During our interview Trevor explained that the team would only ever undergo one project at a time; he explained, “We don’t like to spread ourselves thin. We want to ensure that every job is completed to a high standard and given our full-undivided attention. Sure, it might be old fashioned, but that’s how we like to work”. TP Sherwood craft driveways that last the test of time.

OUTDOOR LIVING

RELAX OUTDOORS THIS SPRING 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 & a few European countries had been recycling and remanufacturing waste plastics into alternative timber products for many years, instead of throwing it all into landfill! Over time, slowly but surely he developed a few basic products in the form of planks and posts and very soon he began to receive interest from people wanting to know more about this revolutionary product that is both an environmentally friendly alternative to normal timber and sustainable which means it will save them a lot of money in the long term! From then on, the rest as they 146

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

NEW SEAT IBIZA

148

SEAT says its new Ibiza which goes on sale in June - is “a major step forward” for the company. More roomy, more comfortable and laden with more connectivity features, the new Ibiza has a youthful, more sporty design. First launched in 1984, the Ibiza has been around the longest in the history of the brand and is its top-selling model, with over 5.4 million units sold. The new Ibiza is 87 mm wider but 2 mm shorter than the previous model, and has more safety features.Leg room in the back seats has increased by 35 mm, while the head room has gone up by 24 mm in the front seats and 17 mm in the back. The seats are 42 mm wider, making the new SEAT Ibiza one of the best in its class in this area. The boot has also been enlarged by 63 litres, bringing its total capacity to 355 litres, and the loading height has also been lowered. There are 1.0 and 1.5 litre petrol engines, and three diesels with differing power outputs. A six speed manual gearbox is standard, with the option of a 7-speed automatic. The new SEAT Ibiza will offer four trim levels, starting with the Reference followed by the Style trim. The topof-the-range will be FR and XCellence. Standard equipment includes Front Assist, Traffic Jam Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control, Keyless Entry System with engine start button, a new generation of front and rear parking sensors and a rear view camera with a higher quality and precision reflected in a premium 8-inch touchscreen with glass panel. Prices will be announced nearer the launch date.

ROAD TEST: RENAULT GRAND SCENIC Renault was a pioneer of the MPV, introducing its Espace model in 1984 and later its compact MPV the Scenic, writes NICK FLETCHER. Since then, competition in the sector has become much more intense, and while the Espace is no longer made in righthand-drive form and thus not marketed in the UK, the Scenic is still a mainstream contender, available in five and seven seater form, and priced from £23,375. My test model was the seven-seat Grand Scenic, priced at £28,445 in Dynamique S Nav spec, and with a 130 hp 1.6 litre diesel engine and 6-speed manual gearbox. Fuel economy is a plus-point for this model - 61.4 mpg combined. Top speed is 118 mph, the 0-60 mph time 11.4 seconds. Striking appearance is also a Grand Scenic ace card – its sweeping curvy lines give it an eye-catching infusion of French flair. This Grand model is no wider nor taller than the five-seat Scenic, but has a longer rear overhang and longer wheelbase to create the space for a third row of seats. Entry-level versions include massive 20-inch alloy wheels,

active emergency braking, hill start assist, cruise control and a seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system with DAB radio and Bluetooth – a lot of kit for the money. My Dynamique S Nav model adds much more, including head-up display, rear parking camera and panoramic glass sunroof. On the road, the car gives a very comfortable ride though on rutted or pot-holed roads, the big wheels do feel the bumps. The 1.6 litre diesel unit pulls well, with good mid-range power for safe overtaking. The cabin has a practical layout and there are plenty of places to stow oddments, the rear seats are easy to adjust and fold and the middle-row provides very good legroom. The rear seats are really just for children, or adults on short journeys. With the third-row folded flat, there is plenty of luggage space – 765 litres. With all seven seats in use, there is a useful 233 litres. The Grand Scenic is a very strong contender in its class, and you do feel that you could drive right across Europe in it and still be relaxed on arrival.

AUDI SQ5 DEBUT Now available to order and priced from £51,200, the all-new Audi SQ5. Lighter than the previous model, it has a 350 hp 3.0 litre turbo-petrol engine offering 0-60 mph in 5.4 seconds. Audi says the car as “part high-achieving performance car, part resilient and family-ready SUV”. An eight-speed tiptronic transmission features short-ratio lower gears while the upper gears are long in the interest of fuel conservation. If required the transmission can freewheel as soon as the driver lifts off the accelerator at speeds of between 34mph and 99mph for even greater fuel efficiency. Combined fuel economy is 34 mpg. The SQ5 is quattro all-wheel-drive-equipped. During normal driving, the system distributes power with a slight rear-axle bias, but when necessary it can divert the majority to whichever axle has better traction. It is backed up by wheelselective torque control, which slightly brakes the inside wheels during faster cornering to tuck the SQ5 into the bend, and then helps to prolong handling neutrality and precision once the car is committed.

Also controllable via Audi drive select is the electronically regulated ‘S’ suspension which allows the driver to adapt damper response to suit the driving situation. As standard, the SQ5 TFSI is fitted with the top-of-the-line MMI navigation plus infotainment system with MMI allin-touch and an 8.3-inch display. The system recognises handwritten input as well as touch gestures familiar from consumer electronics, such as zoom.


PREMIER SPORTS SOLUTIONS EXPLAINS...

ROAD TEST: FIAT TIPO LOUNGE Think of Fiat and its chic 500 model immediately springs to mind, followed by its practical Panda, and perhaps some of its popular vans such as the Doblo and Qubo, writes NICK FLETCHER. What probably won’t come to mind right away is its Tipo model, and

WHAT’S THE APR?

In the old days, or “during the war” as my friends and colleagues usually jibe about me, the most heard question I encountered was “what’s the deal for cash?”. As time has passed however, we are in a world where finance is no longer a dirty word and the only way to gauge how competitive your deal might be is to compare the APR... apparently.

that is a shame for it deserves wider appreciation and more of the limelight. Priced from £13,445, this mid-size hatchback and estate range offers a value-for-money alternative to the bigger names – Astra and Golf for instance – in this popular mainstream sector. My recent test model, a Tipo hatchback with an impressively economical 1.6 litre diesel engine, was a reminder that if potential buyers take a wider look at the market, they can come across commendable models than have somehow slipped under the radar. The Tipo is not too common a sight on UK roads but is quicker, more economical and has lower emissions than some rivals. And of course, being less common, it is more exclusive! Its sleek shape has an elegance often lacking in the family hatchback class and its also has

Having trained and sold motor finance since I was a nipper with a dream, it amazes me how such a variable factor in borrowing money has become the main comparison for customers to decide how good their deal is. Especially when we are all bound, or at least should be, by the FCA and the regime of “doing what is best for the client” and rightly so. So, why is it that nobody seems to know that the APR can be adjusted, depending on things such as how much is borrowed, length of term, even admin fees…to name but a few. All they see is that a certain manufacturer is offering some too good to be true figure like 3.9% and in turn you are left with the impression that said trusted lender is offering a brilliant service with a nice low APR…but what about the actual costs involved in using someone else’s money?

excellent driving dynamics. My test model was an upper range version with a 120 hp 1.6 litre diesel engine. The 0-60 mph time is quite nippy at 9.8 seconds and top speed is 124 mph. Fuel economy is impressive – 76.3 mpg combined, and its 98g/km emissions figure means no road tax. Standard equipment on this version, which costs £17,995 includes 17inch alloy wheels, LED daytime running lights, climate control, 5-inch touchscreen, DAB radio, sat-nav, USB and Aux port, and steering wheel audio controls. It also has cruise control, auto lights and wipers and chrome detailing. The test model also had some optional features including heated leather seats. The cabin is well designed for comfort and ease of use, with decent

A motor dealer may not be able to offer fifteen year terms and rates linked to some small hedge fund in the outer Mongolia reaches, but a good one will have solid products, with competitive rates, dedicated to offering protection to the client from unforeseen circumstances and even the dreaded negative equity. All this (along with no hidden fees) can allow you to make a decision and do something crazy like change your car within only a couple of years, whilst encountering levels of interest certainly no worse (and quite often better) than the aforementioned APR warriors. So, maybe the question should no longer just be “what’s the APR?” but also, “so, how much is buying and selling this car really going to cost me?”. Then you can make an informed decision and get back to enjoying what should be an exciting time; having fun choosing a new car and not being blinkered by APR.

head and leg room for rear occupants and a roomy 440 litre boot which can be expanded with drop-down rear seats. Some of the trim materials do appear to be low-budget but that apart, the Tipo scores well. It also impresses with its precise driving feel, with good steering feedback and a suspension set-up which nicely balances the need for ride comfort with firmness for assured handling. Anyone planning to buy a new mid-size hatchback ought to put the Tipo on their viewing list. It may have a low profile in its sector, but may also surprise many with just how much it offers.

MOTORING

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

A RIDE IN THE NEW NISSAN GT-R Almost 8 years ago, I was invited down to Westover Nissan to test drive their new GT-R. It was a day that would forever be stamped in my mind; driving a car I had always longed to drive – and it didn’t disappoint. So when I got the call to test out the 2017 model, I was there with bells on!

is what sets the GT-R apart from its rivals, few of which that can match its performance. However, the main thing you notice is the grip, which is in short, insane! The 4-wheel drive system locks the tyres to the tarmac like your passenger’s hands will lock to their knees when you bury the accelerator.

You don’t have to be a previous Nissan owner to buy (or even enjoy) the 2017 GT-R, nor are you to be vetted by a team of brand gatekeepers to determine whether you’re worthy of a GT-R. You don’t have to be a skilled racing driver, or have owned extremely fast cars to tap into what the GT-R has to offer and unlike most supercars, it doesn’t require an elaborate maintenance schedule and a pair of white gloves that you must wear each and every time you slip behind the wheel.

Nissan have revised the 3.8-litre V6, which has gained new engine management, crafted from the NISMO warehouse in order to push its twin-turbo grunt to 565 horses and 467 lb-ft of torque. The GTR’s real party trick however, is its all-wheel drive system, which in combination with its launch control feature enables the car’s neck-snapping acceleration off the line. I personally experienced this and even in slightly damp conditions we catapulted to 60mph in 2 seconds. If you have not experienced a GT-R launch control it takes your breath away, literally, for those few seconds you cannot breath! Not unlike a skydive; when for those first few seconds you leave the plane and your stomach stays behind.

The Nissan GT-R has always punched well above its weight when compared to its supercar cousins. Even on numbers alone, the GT-R delivers 60 mph from a standing start in an astonishing 2.7 seconds, on its way to a top speed of 196 miles per hour. How it manages to overachieve in each of these categories

You feel like you should have an oxygen mask strapped firmly to your face and one hand on the

ejection seat handle, as the sound of cubic yards of air being sucked in by the twin under hood turbos mimic a jet fighter’s afterburners. This alone makes the GT-R one of the most addictive cars you can buy. The sure-footed power delivery is also what makes this beast frighteningly easy to drive, quickly with the help of its electronic aids, which are constantly peering over your shoulder to assist you through the corners. By shifting power front, rear and side-toside, the GT-R keeps you looking like Lewis Hamilton even if your skill level is more ‘Miss Daisy’. Fortunately, a number of changes made to the GTR’s visage for 2017 – including a larger grille, new front spoiler and integrated corner vent LED fog lights – work together, with revised side skirts and vents at the rear of the car, to not only update the Nissan’s looks, but to also keep things more stable at higher velocities. It feels so much better that the old GT-R and that was truly magic. I would recommend anyone who has owned the old GT-R to come and drive the new one, as it’s a totally different beast. While the Nissan GT-R’s organ-rending forward thrust was no surprise given its specs, I was somewhat taken aback by how connected the car felt through the steering rack. Even on a damp day driving through the New Forest, which suddenly turned to a monsoon, I was never caught out by the lack of grip, the car felt as if it was on rails. The vehicle’s adjustable suspension system also provided a welcome range of stiff to soft settings, reducing the punishment on rough country roads while preserving the Nissan’s poise. I’m happy to say that the car has evolved into a nimble monster that will send your license up in smoke, with an interior that has significantly improved with less clutter and heaps of leather. Sliding in at around £40,000 less than a comparable Audi R8 and more than £70,000 below the Porsche 911 Turbo S, it also happens to represent one of those few times when spending your cash on a car feels like a bargain – especially since it’s got the goods to out run prancing horses and charging bulls almost at will. Best of all you won’t have to play any bizarre exotic ownership games to park one in your garage. If you want to experience one for yourself give Gerard Reidy at Nissan a call and he will take you for a spin, you won’t regret it - 01202 970420

FOOD & DRINK

REVIEWED

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

KAYLA BRASSERIE Ah, mid-day. The bell chimes twelve and on-cue pangs of hunger rule you to drop what you’re doing and begin your daily feeding ritual. Today’s excursion led us to our friends (and neighbours) at ‘Kayla Brasserie’. No sooner did the thought occur, were we seated and evaluating menus and so begins the telling of our experience…

152

We sat up in the balcony overlooking a bustling restaurant. The décor was unique; bright, bold orange walls, glitzy chandeliers and glossy black furniture outfitted the two floors and basement. Our waiter arrived chirpy and keen to assist as he noted our order. We pondered our choices as we gazed at the incredible coving and statement paneled walls, taking in its architectural grandeur. Moments later a glass of crisp Sauvignon Blanc arrived – ah, the perfect mid-work elixir. Kayla boasts a sizeable wine list, with a variety of grapes and varietals, with a company of spirits and soft drinks too. But enough wine-talk and onto the food.

and wine-packed sauce that left us defenceless to resist. The Fish Cakes were the perfect lunch snack and let’s not forget the Breaded Brie, which was everything we’d hope it would be. Molten cheese coated in crunchy breadcrumbs – oh so much cheesy joy! Served with a pot of cranberry sauce, we savoured each mouthful happier than kids in a candy store.

Our two-course endeavor began with ‘Grilled Goats Cheese’, ‘Mussels’, ‘Fish Cakes’ and ‘Breaded Brie’. Where to begin? …The goats cheese? The cheese itself was crumbly, warmed and pungent in flavor. Served with a side of caramelised balsamic onions, which made for a delightful sweet versus savory contrast.

Before we had time to question the available space in our stomachs, mains arrived. I had opted for a comfort food favourite, ‘Tagliatelle Bolognese’. The mince was tender, heavily absorbed by garlicky sauce. Mmm garlic. The pasta was cooked as per Italian standards, ‘al dente’ and the sauce was moreish.

Among the sea-based family of foods, I’d say mussels have to be the best. Pebble sized portions of meat that slide down with ease, but in truth the star of this dish was the sauce; a creamy, garlic, onion

Among my colleague’s mains was the ‘Mediterranean Pizza’; Baked fresh in their very own clay oven, this pizza was crispy all the right places. Topped with tomato, buffalo mozzarella, goats cheese, peppers,

onions, cherry tomatoes and a balsamic drizzle – so much goodness on one pizza. My co-diner Ciaran (or ‘Ciaran two burgers’ as we call him, for his untamable appetite) opted for the ‘Lamb Shank’ – definitely one for meat lovers. Served in a red wine and mushroom sauce and a side of mash, it was quite the dish. As our meal came to a close, we sat and enjoyed the comfort of a full-stomach. We give Kayla a big thumbs up for a pleasant lunch and beautiful surroundings. By Charlotte Williams Contact Kayla Brasserie on: t. 01202 554300 e. contact@kayla-brasserie.com a.
