ODYSSEY HOMES WORTH THE JOURNEY

BROWN & KAY ESTATE & LETTING AGENTS; WITH SPRING COMES TRANSFORMATION

Odyssey Homes are proud to announce the completion of their latest project: a tailor-made, luxury home for Bournemouth FC player ‘Junior Stanislas’. Junior and his family are thrilled with their new family home and it seems that word has spread too. Cherries locker-room talk has since turned to Odyssey’s property development, with two more of the team’s players now owning an Odyssey Home.

As we move towards a hopefully warmer season it’s time to start think about sprucing up your homes and gardens, aka spring-cleaning. If you are doing more extensive works to your property, perhaps an extension or a hefty refurbishment, maybe it’s time for that long awaited loft conversion. Whatever the change, it makes you wonder if it is actually adding value to your most valuable asset. Brown & Kay have over 11 years experience as a local, independent agent and over 80 years combined experience in Sales and Lettings and we would be happy to visit you, to give you an up-to-date market appraisal of your home. Just call 01202 765995 or 01202 676292 and speak to one of our experienced team members.

Known for their unique approach to property development, Odyssey Homes are making a name for themselves transforming tired and underutilized bungalows into modern homes. You can read more about their incredible work on pages 70 & 71, as well as gander at their takeover of this issues front cover. t. 01202 674369 e. info@odysseyhomes.co.uk a. 5a New Orchard, Poole BH15 1LY

Now for the treat…on Easter Saturday we will be giving away Easter Eggs and balloons from our Westbourne Office (while they last!). Don’t like chocolate? Then grab a free spring bulb! We’ve even been doing a little springcleaning of our own; come and see us Easter Saturday or Monday, to see some of the changes that we’ve made to the office! We have been investing in further staff training and updating of our systems so that we can offer clients, old and new, the very best experience.

TASTE OF THE SOUTH – A BRAND NEW FESTIVAL COMING TO POOLE, DORSET THIS MAY!

Taste of the South is set to become a yearly fixture in the Dorset event diary and is an innovative and exciting environment for exhibitors from across the South of England to showcase their products in a pop up setting right in the heart of Poole and close to the South’s award-winning beaches. The festival will run from 19th- 21st May and will operate from Friday 12pm – 6pm, on the Saturday 10am - 6pm and Sunday from 10am – 5pm.

Did you know Dorset had three peaks? Come and see for yourself as part of the Diverse Abilities Dorset 3 Peak trek being held on Saturday 15 July. Challenge yourself by walking a marathon distance of 26.2 miles along the famous Wessex Ridgeway, taking in the three highest peaks in the county - Lewesdon Hill, Pilsdon Pen and Bulbarrow Hill.

www.brownandkay.co.uk

We have a wealth of advice on selling, buying or renting; advise we would be only too delighted to share.

Taste of the South is a brand new local food, drink and produce festival coming to Dorset this May and has been created in association with the week-long Poole Maritime Festival 15th-21st May. This year Poole will be hosting an array of events, including the annual Poole Harbour Boat Show to celebrate the European Maritime Day Conference coming to the UK for the first time EVER Poole Maritime Festival is estimated to attract 48,000 visitors and will generate an increased footfall to the town and the surrounding area as a part of the European delegation, as well as the local community.

TREK DORSET 3 PEAKS FOR DIVERSE ABILITIES

Trader pitches are expected to fill the area of Poole Park to full capacity in the first year, and the organisers are offering a range of options and prices for exhibitors over the 3 days which includes the use of electric, waste disposal and car parking, as well as a chance to get involved with chef demonstrations and tastings in the pop-up demonstration kitchen. There is also a limited option for brand new startup businesses of less than a year old to receive a discounted rate. Taste of the South – a showcase of the South of England, a great place to shop, eat, drink, relax and the place to do business and to trade. To secure your space please contact info@tastesouth.co.uk or call 01202 896698 for more information. Website: www.tastesouth.events.

The Dorset 3 Peak challenge, part of the charity’s Dorset Big Foot Trek Series, crosses some of the most breath-taking scenery in the county, with the 12-hour hike accumulating a combined height of over 1350ft – more than the ascent of Ben Nevis, Britain’s highest mountain! Lead by skilled and highly experienced mountain leaders, the Dorset 3 Peaks challenge will really test those who take part and will give participants a truly memorable experience of the great Dorset countryside and the scenery it has to offer. Registration for the event is £40 until 1 April, and £50 thereafter. Minimum sponsorship is £295 per person. The charity is also offering local businesses that book a group of 10, one free place.

COVENANTS

Sarah March-Paschal from Bruce Lance Often overlooked in your title documents, covenants can seriously affect your ability to enjoy your new home. Sarah March-Paschal (above right) from Bruce Lance in Poole explains how to overcome these – sometimes quite comical – restrictions. When buying a property, you may notice a wordy treatise on all the things you can’t do in your new home. If you don’t instantly glaze over (some of the wording can be quite archaic) you may find that you can’t sell ‘intoxicating liquor’, keep pigs or hold tea parties on a Sunday morning. Welcome to covenants! You have stumbled upon an area of land law that is extremely old but still very relevant today. Covenants are restrictions put onto land by the people who used to own it and they govern how that land can be used by subsequent owners. Covenants remain ‘on’ the land forever and time does not reduce their influence. Your solicitor will bring to your attention any

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!

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.

66

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.

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

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

TALKING BUSINESS

INTRODUCING…

ODYSSEY HOMES Property Development – Love it, or Hate it? Opinions vary hugely, especially in and around the Dorset area where demand has soared, with new sites popping up every month. In the midst of a nationwide housing crisis, developers are seeking ways to utilize land and existing properties to maximize its area and investment potential. Pressure in the housing market and tough planning restrictions are forcing some builders to construct homes lacking in character. With an incredible array of unique properties in their portfolio, the team at Odyssey Homes is taking a new approach to property development. Chris Richardson, founder and Director of Odyssey Homes Ltd, has sought an innovative way forward. We wanted to find out more about this ground-breaking company so we spoke with Chris to get to know more about this man of many talents.

where my grandparents raised a family, my parents too. The area has always attracted young people looking to raise a family in an environment that encourages an outdoor lifestyle”. Chris set up his business in Poole, having recognised the area’s potential; “Where Poole stands head and shoulders above many other seaside towns is that its economy doesn’t totally rely on tourism and therefore it is possible to build a professional carrier, whilst at the same time enjoying the local environment with your family. Historically, houses were designed into that lifestyle requirement. Too often the pursuit of profit has lead developers (myself included) to knock down these perfectly good family homes and replace them with two, or sometimes three, houses squeezed onto a plot originally designed for one”.

Breaking Conventions Raised in Poole from a young age, Chris knows only too well the demographic that makes this area so special; “The demographics for this area (Poole/Bournemouth) haven’t really changed over the years. It’s

Odyssey Homes take tired, but otherwise perfectly good, family homes and transforms them, making them more relevant to modern lifestyle requirements. The results are spectacular. The process known

as ‘upscaling’ means the existing foundations remain, as do most of the existing walls; The heart of the home stays. “By keeping the existing footprint and extending where necessary, we are able to create spacious, light-filled homes, sitting in established gardens for the price of a smaller, more cramped new build” The idea is simple. Should a purchaser be unable to find a new build in a style or location that they like, then Odyssey Homes will find an older house for them and upscale it. The beauty of this is that the purchaser will own an end product that has been built entirely with their needs in mind and probably for less money than many new build developments. “We don’t work on behalf of a thirdparty profit lead investor. We work directly with our clients and with guidance from our team of experts, including award winning architect ‘David James’ and our own highly skilled craftsmen. We plan and create a bespoke home that suits their personal needs”

to completion, ensuring that it remains on budget, hassle free and quality controlled. “Our reputation is at stake and delivering beautiful, bespoke homes is at the core of our philosophy”, Chris remarked. “Equally, should a client want to upscale their existing property then we will work with them to produce exactly what they have always dreamt of”, he continued. I was curious to find out what inspired Chris to get involved in this industry. Evidently it all began in his late teens. A former pupil of Seldown School, he knows the area well. Having trained as a Sailmaker with Crusader Sails and a champion sailor in his own right, he journeyed across the Atlantic to New York, delivering a small yacht. His eyes lit up as we spoke of his time in the Big Apple; “I remember sailing into New York when I was 19 years old, being out at sea, looking at all of those amazing buildings and the wonderful vertiginous landscape. It was extraordinary”. Not wanting to leave this awe-inspiring city, he knew he had to find work. After wandering into a bar one day, he managed to obtain a painting and decorating job. He worked with the owner to give the bar a whole new look, it was both eye-catching and innovative. More commissions were fast to follow and

soon word had spread to the affluent; New Yorkers who were desperate to have Chris renovate their residences. During his time in New York he designed five apartments on the highly prestigious 5th Avenue. “I was doing amazing things, things I could never have imagined; I was being asked to decorate spaces with Picassos on the wall. Then they’d ask me what I thought of another space and I’d make suggestions, do a quick sketch and it all sprouted from there”. Travelling, especially backpacking through Europe, has had a big effect too. In his twenties, Chris worked in Florence for a while restoring churches and picturesque villas. Drawn to the beautiful architecture and art he felt inspired, “It became something more, I found a passion to learn all I could”, says Chris. These commissions took Chris to many countries and cultures. As part of the design team he built the famous Chiva Som resort in Hua Hin, Thailand. Voted the best spa in Conde Nast for the last 10 years. Chris developed his knowledge of listed homes and took on many historically important commissions including Chavenage House in Gloucestershire, familiar to fans of the TV series Poldark. These homes require

a very different approach, as one must meet very strict conditions of planning and restoration”, Chris enlightened. These projects are the reason that Chris holds such a deep respect for the roots and structure of a building. He is extremely conscious of his role to be sympathetic of how a home fits into its surroundings.

Setting the Standard The concept behind Odyssey Homes comes directly from Chris. He has travelled away from Poole, but his heart has always remained here. This became part of the company’s motto, ‘Worth the Journey’. With the concept in mind

01202 674369 info@odysseyhomes.co.uk

that Odyssey Homes make ‘beautiful homes, that people want to come home to’ and based on glowing testimonials, their clients seem to agree too. Even the names of their homes reflect this notion; Athena, Artemis, Orion and Calypso, all give a sense of coming home. When you walk into an Odyssey Homes home, the evidence of expert design and construction is everywhere and everything is completed to an incredibly high specification. With a talented team behind him, Odyssey Homes are breaking the boundaries of conventional property development and producing stunning results.

ASK THE EXPERT...

ASK THE EXPERT... Monty isn’t just a dapper tweed-wearing handsome Fox; he is also a wealth of knowledge when it comes to the world of property. He is on hand to dispense hints and tips on house sales and property rentals to would-be smart Foxes and Vixens in his fortnightly House Column. This issue, James from Ensbury Park asks, “Is the trend towards openplan living here to stay?” Dear James, Being a well travelled fox, I’ve been to many a country where openplan living is certainly the norm, however, it is a relatively recent phenomenon in the UK by comparison. It is true; many newly built houses incorporate the idea of open-plan living, where living room, dining and kitchen appear to flow into one-another, in their design. This can prove to be very appealing to the modern way of family life, where all members of the family can be together whilst getting on with their tasks individually. In older period properties, where the design favoured your typical boxed-room lay-out, developers and home-owners have taken to creating the open-plan feel by removing walls or creating the illusion of space by widening doorways or removing doors completely. In some cases, this can prove to be a very costly project but does instantly modernise an older property. It is interesting that you ask if this is a trend that is here to stay, we here at Foxes Sales & Lettings certainly see a fondness towards this style of living and the lightness and feeling of open space it creates. However, we are also aware of some of the reported pit-falls of this lay-out - by removing the walls, you remove an element of soundproofing – no more private conversations or television viewing. And whilst we think the trend is definitely not going anywhere soon, there are home-buyers who are looking for the exact opposite of open-plan lay-outs, opting for the privacy and cosiness that sectioned-living affords. In the end, with homes, there is no one size fits all – the trick is to ask yourself, ‘Can I imagine myself living here?’ – it may be the thing you thought you were looking for is quite different to what you end up moving into – or what you like at one stage of your life evolves as you do – keep your options open!

BUYING YOUR FIRST HOME? Jordan Tuttle, advisor at Homeline Mortgages gives some practical advice for first time buyers. How much can I borrow as a first time buyer? There is no exact science to this, as it depends from lender to lender. If you are taking out a joint mortgage it will help, as both salaries will be taken into account. It will also depend on all other financial commitments you have, plus affordability. You must be comfortable with the repayment figures each month. How much deposit will I need? Once more there is no magic figure - but generally you should save at least 5% and ideally nearer 20% of the cost of the home you would like. At Homeline Mortgages we undertake a comprehensive search of the market and therefore depending upon how much deposit you can raise, will change which lender offers the best mortgage deal. Can I get a mortgage without a deposit? The best option is to have a family member who can help you get on the property ladder. It may be possible to release some equity from their property to give you a deposit, or a guarantor mortgage means that a parent, guardian or close relative agrees to be responsible for paying the mortgage if you can’t. What else do I need to pay for? Buying a property is a costly business, at Homeline Mortgages we will take you through new costs to consider, to ensure you can afford them alongside your new mortgage. Location, location, location The right property, as your first home, can be hard to find. It’s a tough market with lots of first time buyers looking to purchase. Don’t rush to buy the only thing you can afford. Do your research and try to buy the right property, and most of all don’t panic buy. Any other advice? It’s really worth checking your credit record and if necessary take action to improve it before applying for a mortgage. Also, we do recommend using a mortgage broker as they will have access to many more lenders and can find the most suitable first time buyer mortgage. Finally, we recommend you register to vote, being on the electronic role is one of the most important factors in getting a mortgage. 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.

TALKING BUSINESS

VANTAGE POINT TALKS…

‘AIRBNB’ AND UTILIZING IT’S FULL POTENTIAL So you’ve heard the hype and you’ve heard the horror stories. You’re tempted by the promise of higher rental income and greater flexibility offered by listing your property on Airbnb, but you don’t know where to start. If only there were a local, tried and trusted company who could answer the big questions you have and advise you on all the aspects of becoming an Airbnb host… Vantage Point is on hand to answer those frequently asked questions. ‘Airbnb’; what’s all the fuss about? Airbnb is the world’s leading marketplace to list, discover and book unique, local accommodation. Accessible online via tablet or smart phone, Airbnb is the easiest platform for people to monetise their property and showcase it to an audience of millions. Listing a property on Airbnb enables hosts to reach a much wider pool of potential guests. Who can be an Airbnb Host? There are 3 types of Airbnb host; homeowners with a spare room to rent who want to make a few extra pounds with their available space, holiday homeowners who want a stable secondary source of income, and property investment landlords who want to build a serious Airbnb business that will eventually become their main source of income. How does Airbnb work? Airbnb hosts list their properties – which can be anything from studio apartments, right through to penthouses, moored yachts or even entire houses

– on the Airbnb website. It’s free to create a listing and hosts decide a nightly, weekly or monthly rate and set out cleaning charges, house rules and other booking conditions. Each listing allows hosts to promote properties through snappy titles, detailed descriptions and enticing photographs. Guests can search the database of properties at any time, but must have an Airbnb profile to book a stay. Guests can contact hosts and can submit a reservation request online. Once a reservation is agreed payment details are entered via a secure payment system. I have heard horror stories about guests who cause damage, how can I avoid that? Perhaps the biggest concern for hosts is that there is a potential for their property to get damaged. Whilst the majority of booking transactions occur without incident, there are occasionally stories in the media about homes being damaged and misused. Hosts can help limit risks by using Airbnb features to restrict instant booking and by insisting that guests meet minimum requirements including Verified ID, comprehensive profiles, good reviews etc. By engaging in discussions with the guest before accepting their booking, and by utilising the secure payment platform and the Host Guarantee you can easily limit the risk. Above all, instructing an experienced property manager to handle bookings and greet guests is the best way to avoid pitfalls.

Isn’t becoming a host a huge commitment? There is a lot of work involved in becoming a super host. It takes time and effort to earn great reviews, which you will rely upon to boost your bookings. It a lot of consideration when it comes to properly present your property and creating a fantastic listing that will stand out and attract guests. You will also have to be on hand daily to answer questions from potential guests, to accept reservations and provide directions, recommendation and information about the local area and all this even before checking in and checking out, cleaning and linen changeovers! This is when you need to speak to Vantage Point South Ltd , to discuss their full range of Airbnb Management and hosting services. From preparation to listing, guest communications to reservations, check-in to check-out, cleaning, linen and maintenance; we do everything you don’t have time to do.

INTERVIEW

TEA WITH…

GREEN SQUARE

Up to £30,000 government incentive up for grabs – interested? ‘Being green’ – a concept not unknown to most of us. In an effort to save our planet, many of us are actively involved in green efforts such as recycling, carpooling and other such steps towards a more environmentally friendly everyday life. All well and good, but did you know you could be doing something of far less effort with greater benefit to mother earth? Introducing ‘Green Square’, the renewable energy experts whom will not only supply and install your home with renewable energy products, but will also enable you to get money back, simply by having said products in your home. I know it all seems too good to be true, but allow me to elaborate, the showroom owner & Director ‘Richard Allen’, explained to me, one sunny afternoon at their Christchurch store… “…In this rapidly changing world people are seeking security for their future energy needs.”

98

Tell me a little about yourselves… In a nutshell, we design, Supply and Install renewable energy solutions. That could be something as simple

as a specialist stove, right through to the somewhat more complex Ground Source heat pump with solar. Our driving force is an aim to create a greener world, but in truth, that is only one aspect of our mission. Are goal is to create bespoke energy solutions that are triple, if not quadruple, the efficiency of your current sources of electricity and heat. The cherry on our biodegradable cake is our involvement with Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) allowing our customer to receive the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) – an incentive that can actually earn you (the bill payer) money back. “Renewable Heat Incentive”, what’s that? The government is actively encouraging homeowners, private landlords, selfbuilders and commercial businesses, to have renewable energy generators installed in their properties. In an effort to seek alternatives to the current favourite fossil fuels, the government is willing to pay a substantial incentive, by swapping your old energy appliances for substitutes such as a Biomass boiler, Air or Ground Source Heat Pumps. The incentive for a Biomass boiler is currently £11,000, for a Ground Source


INTERVIEW

Heat Pump this could be £30,000+ Paid quarterly, over a seven-year period. You can even add technologies to those such as Solar Thermal and Solar P.V. Can you give me some kind of example? Like, let’s say my boiler went tomorrow… Sure, so let’s assume that the average 3 bed semi built in the 60’s, probably uses something like 20,000 KWH (Kilowatt hours) in a year. At approximately five pence per kWh, you’re looking at £1000 per annum spent on heat and hot water. To replace your boiler with a like for like gas-model, let’s say that’s £1500 best-case scenario. That cost, plus your annual energy costs (£1000) over seven years equates to £8,500. Now this is where it gets a little complicated, but stay with me… If you replaced your current system with one of our Biomass boilers, whilst the upfront cost would be higher (somewhere around the nine thousand pound mark) you’d actually end up better off. Let’s say we shave 25% off your bills making it £750 a year, over seven years (with the

upfront cost of the new unit) you’d have spent £14,250 – BUT and it’s a big but, you’d be getting that £11,000 incentive from the government, so actually you’d only have spent £3,250 on your energy over the seven years. In short, you’d be £5,250 better off! It can be quite a hard pill to swallow at first, but the savings are incredible! Not to mention the fact that our current energy sources are fleeting and the likelihood that renewable energy will actually become our only option. Your Biomass stoves are probably my favourite, but how much can be customised to fit in with my décor? Prior to having one installed we would complete a home survey to asses the space available and suitability of each product. With this in mind the size & shape of the product is the fist thing you could alter. Second to that is the colour and finish, which we can match to any interior design. Biomass pellets would be your source of energy, a renewable energy source from managed forestry’s.

I have to say, despite my own personal preference, you guys really don’t seem to have any bias over your products? Because we are an independent company covering the full spectrum of domestic renewable energy products, we don’t have a preference. We’re not pressured by a big corporation to make commission and ultimately we are here to create energy solutions. We want to prove that our products are worth their value, so we like to spend time figuring out what is the best product(s) for each customer based on their individual scenario. That could be solely based on energy efficiency, or aesthetics, or it could also be about the level of maintenance the customer is willing, or even able, to commit to. Whatever the case, we want people to reap the maximum benefit of our products. If Green Square has captured your attention then Pop by their Energy Center in Christchurch and let their experts calculate how much they could be saving you on your energy bills!

INTERVIEW

A DAY IN THE LIFE OF A SEARCH AGENT We caught up with Philippa Sole to find out more about this unique role and why more and more buyers are choosing to engage a search agent. Firstly, what is the difference between a search agent and an estate agent? The big difference is who is working for who. Estate agents are engaged and paid by the seller. When you enter negotiations with an estate agent you must remember that they act for the seller. As a search agent, my fee is paid by the buyer. I work directly, for you, to select your perfect property.

106

How do you successfully combine your roles as a property agent and a search agent? My role as a property agent uniquely informs my role as a search agent – it means that I am fully immersed in the BH13/BH14 property market. As a search agent, I take one fee only and that is from the buyer. This gives me the freedom to work solely and exclusively in your interest.

“You need someone to give you an edge over everyone else, someone who will work tirelessly and expertly to find you the right house, in the right location, negotiate the best price and then once all is agreed, ensure that everyone else gets on with their jobs to help complete the deal” What would be your typical day as a search agent? That very much depends on the point we are at in the search process. I undertake all aspects of the property search, right through to a successful completion; from finding the perfect property to undertaking viewings, property histories, mediation and negotiating the sale. Whatever is required, I am there to take the stress and hassle out of the process. Is there a particular part of the role you enjoy? Every day is different, but there are highlights. I will often collect clients from the station or their homes and take them to see the various villages and a shortlist of properties.

Many are interested in discovering the local amenities; the best restaurants, schools, shopping haunts, everything from local yoga classes to the best dog-walking beaches. I always enjoy this element of my work because I am imparting really useful information to buyers that only comes with sound local knowledge. For example, where the sun rises and sets in relation to the property, property history, details of natural springs or subsidence, even local shortcuts, footpaths and beaches. Who are your typical clients? Good question! Anybody and everybody. I work with people looking to relocate to the area, but also many locals who understand the competitive nature of this property market and who want to have an edge when it comes to finding their perfect home. My role involves a lot of hand-holding and employing my skills in my client’s best interest. I am often engaged by elderly clients or their relatives who don’t want the stress and worry that goes into finding the right property and negotiating the deal.


INTERVIEW

Surely using a search agent is a luxury? Not anymore and certainly not in the areas I specialise in. These are some of the most beautiful and sought after locations in the UK. It’s a competitive and fast moving market and so all buyers are looking for an advantage. My clients range from first time buyers to retirees, really anyone who recognises the benefits of having someone actively working for them; able to move quickly when properties come on the market, or even before they come to market. “A one lady army of such expertise and enthusiasm, who has transformed the usually painful, expensive and time consuming stress of trying to buy a house, into one of relaxation, choice, sound advice and excitement.” Is engaging a search agent an additional expense, in an already expensive process? Not necessarily, in fact my services offer remarkable value for money. The majority of my clients are interested in the time and stress I can save them in the long-term, not to mention the money that they save by engaging an experienced negotiator. More often than not this more than covers my fees.

Pippa is nothing short of miraculous. Pippa found us the perfect property, which wasn’t even on the market, a deal was agreed and we are waiting to move in.

What is the best part of your job? Nothing beats the feeling than when I find my clients the perfect property, especially if it’s a property that wouldn’t have been available to them without my intervention. Sharing in their joy when they first look around their ideal property is simply brilliant. I’ve worked with clients in the past who have walked into a property I’ve sourced and just thrown their arms around me with sheer relief and excitement. It’s an exceptional feeling to know I’ve met all their requirements and made a real difference to their experience of buying in this area.

WHITE GOODS UPDATE! ANOTHER LEGISLATION! Just when you think you are on top of things, you find out another legislation has been slipped through and for whatever reason, I have not been informed through my normal channels. To be honest, if it has slipped through my wide antenna radar, the likelihood is, it has slipped through your own. What is it? Since 8th December 2016, you must provide your tenant all documentation and instructions for each new appliance purchased (since December 2016), including cookers. Fridges, freezers, microwaves, washing machines, kettles, vacuum cleaners, lamps, TV’s etc. pretty much anything that uses an electrical current! If this is not part of your routine, which it would be for any decent landlord or agent, then you just need to make sure you download the manual and save it to your property file. This will ensure each time a new tenant moves into the property, you will include this as part of their move in pack - Along with the other 6 legal major pieces of information you must give. (if you are unsure of the now 7 pieces of information you must supply your tenant at the commencement of a new tenancy,

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

Along with the electrical item instructions, a letting agent or landlord must do a visual of the electrical items to ensure all the insulation is intact on both the appliance and cables. This should form part of the inventory.

COLEMAN INVITED TO VIEW UNIQUE APSLEY HOUSE DESK Coleman Insurance Brokers Private Clients division provide cover for a wide range of often rare or entirely one off articles, particularly when it comes to jewellery, art, antiques and in the case of this featured, stunning item, furniture. Steven Risk, CEO at Coleman was recently invited to a private viewing of the entirely unique Apsley House desk. The desk, which reflects the architectural elegance of one of the capital’s finest residence and demonstrates an outstanding combination of traditional and modern cabinet-making techniques, has cover provided for it by Coleman as part of a private collection. The house itself was design by Robert Adam between 1771-78 and became the London home of the Duke of Wellington whilst Prime Minister. The top floor is still used by his descendants as a London residence.

134

The desk which is a one of piece designed by David Linley as part of his Extraordinary Furniture series is superbly handcrafted in French walnut and ebony with nickelplated detailing. It features a scaled replica of Apsley House along with the architecture of Decimus Burton’s Hyde Park Corner Screen all faithfully and skilfully hand crafted.

The desks writing surface is inset with exquisite hand-tooled leather and the three draws at the front are embellished with a three-dimensional representation of stucco work in walnut; with nickel-plated locks produced by J. Braham & Sons who were responsible for much of the metalwork within Apsley House itself. The house contains a number of secret draws, with the craftsmanship being to such a standard that they are impossible to see without knowledge their location. The roof of the house is hinged and lifts to reveal a unique porcelain plaque, commissioned by Linley from the Manufacture de Sèvres in Paris. The plaque features a reproduction of the political cartoon ‘A Wellington Boot’ and celebrates Apsley House as the home of one of the finest collections of Sèvres porcelain in the World. The desk truly is an incredible example of craftsmanship and design. Coleman are very proud to be able to provide cover for this stunningly and intricately produced, truly unique piece of furniture and are thankful for the opportunity to view it.

We are keen that the whole community has the

opportunity to be part of this, whether through volunteering, designing flags, coming to one of the many events making up Poole Maritime Festival, or attending the European Maritime Day Conference. “As one of the judges for the children’s flag competition I am especially looking forward to seeing creative and imaginative designs celebrating Poole’s maritime heritage past, present and future.” To find out more about Poole Maritime Festival and the opportunities available please visit www.poolemaritimefestival.co.uk.

INTERIORS

SUPERIOR FIRES A reputation for excellence We got the chance to visit the experts at Superior Fires to find out more about their line of bespoke focal points. ‘All things fire’ professionals Ben Upham and Michael Athay took the time to tell us more…

the same talents with new ambitions. The company was set-up with the aim to create an entirely new direction and a service that enabled customers to create something that would fit in perfectly with their home.

30 Years Experience

“Driven By Obsession”

As the current leading online retailer of high-efficiency gas and electric fires, it’s no surprise that Superior Fires have decided to set-up a static showroom, right here in Dorset. Located in Christchurch, their showroom boasts an incredibly wide range of fires; stoves, gas, electric, even LED screens that simulate a roaring blaze. The possibilities are endless.

Superior Fires pride themselves on the quality of their products. Each and every project is given due-care and no aspect is left un-considered. The benefit of employing a manufacturer-comeretailer to create your fire is just the level of flexibility you have, especially when it comes to design. You can trust that whatever vision you have in mind, can be brought to life, leaving your expectations well and truly exceeded. Whatever the budget, project, or style, they are confident that they can find you the ultimate solution.

Someone you might not have heard of (but will most certainly know of) is their parent company ‘Focal Point Fires’; the single largest gas fire manufacturer in the UK, with clients including DIY giant, ‘B&Q’. Chances are if you have ever looked for a fire in B&Q it’s probably one that has been made by Focal Point. Superior Fires is actually the subsidiary to Focal Point –

On Trend; Stoves For top-notch interior designers the stove is the new ‘it’ focal point – one flip through the pages of a luxury home magazine would tell you that. The stove represents both traditional and

contemporary style, which is why it has become increasingly popular over the last couple of years. Having foolishly purchased a basic stove for myself a few months back from an alternative retailer, I was genuinely gutted having seen the superior quality of SF’s products. Unlike your average stove, Superior Fires only use the best materials, giving the desired authenticity of a log burning fire, without the hassle.

Flue Who It’s a common misconception that those without a flue or chimney are unable to have a fire in their home, but Superior Fires are breaking convention with innovation! Their unique technological advancements allow them to achieve 100% efficient fires without a chimney or flue. Of course there is something to be said for the look that a chimneybreast adds to a room, well, fear not! Should you wish, Superior Fires can conduct a


INTERIORS

It’s our pursuit to question the universally accepted tradition that the fire can only be installed in a room at one level.

Visit Their Showroom Set-up with a unique layout, the Superior Fires showroom provides the ultimate shopping experience. The space is a collection of chambers, showcasing a wide range of styles, in a variety of different room settings. “The idea is to enable visitors to better visualise our fires in their home”, Michael explained. In addition to the home scenes you can peruse their range of flue-less and electric fires within sections of their own, but It’s important to bear in mind that whilst they have a vast range on display, this is really only a taste of what they can do. Almost every product is fully customisable; the surrounds, the back panel the hearths, even the stones/ logs. The only limit is your imagination. t. 01202 588632 e. sales@superiorfires.co.uk w. www.superiorfires.co.uk a. 10 Avon Trading Park, Reid Street, Christchurch, Dorset, BH23 2BT

home survey and installation service, to see if a ‘stud chimneybreast’ or cavity in your home is possible and of course, on budget. This is a great tool for the customers, as they benefit from having on site advice from qualified gas safe engineers who will then provide a detailed survey sheet, to show what is involved in the job.

Doing your bit We’ve all fallen for the romance of a real wood burning fire; being tucked away in a mountain chalet, surrounded by confectionary and burning embers. But the reality of such a fantasy is actually incredibly bad for the environment. All of the smoke and carbon born out of real wood fires is a large contributor to the damage of our O-Zone layer and whilst we might not all be green activists, if you could opt for a gas or electric fire that did exactly the same job as a wood burning fire (if not better), wouldn’t you?

THE BENEFITS OF REFORMED PLASTICS PRODUCTS: • Safe and secure • Easy to clean • A range of colours and textures • Will not need painting or staining • Non-slip decking • Lasts for over 50 years • Resistant to vandalism • Resistant to salt water • Resistant to chemicals

WHY ARE OUR PRODUCTS DIFFERENT? Plastic lumber is the perfect alternative to anything that has ever needed maintaining. It can be cut with a regular saw, drilled, nailed or screwed into and routed as easily as wood, but can also be cleaned with anything from only a damp cloth to a pressure washer if you wish, without causing any harm.

WHY RECYCLE? Recycling is an excellent way of saving energy and conserving the environments natural resources. One recycled plastic bottle would save enough energy to power a 60-watt light bulb for 3 hours. The unreleased energy contained in the average dustbin each year could power a television for 5,000 hours.

We offer closed loop recycling, by diverting post consumer plastic waste from landfill and manufacturing it into a huge variety of useable products.

FINANCIAL BENEFITS Achieving value for money is a key driver for any purchasing decision. Although some

recycled

products have greater up-front cost, their longevity and durability make them a more cost-effective option over the long term.

DOES IT NEED TO BE CLEANED? Our products only need to be cleaned after a spillage. The collection of airborne dirt is inevitable and we would recommend a simple spray-down with a hose or wipe over with a damp cloth on a regular basis to ensure that your purchase is kept in the best condition.

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

FORD FIESTA ST

152

Ford Performance has announced the next generation Ford Fiesta ST, powered by an all-new three-cylinder, 1.5-litre EcoBoost engine. With almost 200hp under the bonnet, the car has a 0-60 mph time of 6.7 seconds. The third generation of Fiesta ST will be the first ever Ford Performance model powered by a three-cylinder engine, and the first Fiesta ST to feature selectable Drive Modes – enabling engine, steering and stability controls to be configured to Normal, Sport and Track settings for an optimised fun-to-drive experience in conditions from motorways to track days. The technologies amplify the naturally sporty sound of the new 1.5-litre EcoBoost engine that also features Ford’s industry-first cylinder deactivation system for a three-cylinder engine, for further reduced CO2 emissions of an anticipated 114g/km. Launched early next year in both three-door and fivedoor bodystyles, the next generation Fiesta ST will be offered with a greater variety of interior trim and personalisation options than ever before, with bold and distinctive exterior styling that includes a unique racecar-inspired mesh grille and exclusive 18in alloy wheels. “Our ST models are designed to make a Ford Performance driving experience accessible to customers regardless of lifestyle,” said Matthias Tonn, Fiesta ST chief programme engineer. With three- and five-door bodystyles and distinctive styling options that complement the model’s performance characteristics available from day-one, the next generation Fiesta ST will deliver a broader appeal for an even wider range of car-buyers.”

ROAD TEST: SUBARU OUTBACK The Subaru Outback is a formidable off-roader which is also good to drive on the tarmac, making it ideal for those whose lifestyle mixes urban and rural activities, writes NICK FLETCHER. It is quite refined to drive, is well equipped, looks smart and classy and Subaru has an excellent reputation for reliability so it ticks many boxes for potential buyers, with prices starting at £32,680. While the 2.0 litre diesel will be the choice of many, those seeking sharper performance can have the 172 hp 2.5 litre petrol model which still offers 40 mpg combined, pretty good for such a large vehicle, and this version – the Outback entrylevel model - was the one I tested. It is labelled SE Premium Lineartronic and has CVT auto transmission with all wheel drive, and delivers a top speed of 130 mph and a 0-60 mph time of 10.2 seconds - quick by class standards. The combined fuel economy figure is 40.4 mpg. Underway, this engine pulls smoothly and quietly and the CVT box changes with minimal fuss. With nicely-weighted steering too, everything combines to give a refined drive on smooth surfaces, though on heavily-potholed roads, you do

feel the bumps. The Outback also feels quite nimble in town, easy to handle and park. On the open road, it corners well and while as with most vehicles in this sector, there is an element of body roll, it is well-controlled with reassuring grip and the overall ride quality is very good. The exterior of the Outback makes a strong and quite classy visual statement, and while the cabin is laid out for functionality rather than style, its understatement is no detriment to the overall good impression. There is plenty of room for five occupants, and the boot space of 559 litres (expanding to 1,848 litres) is substantial. In SE Premium trim this entry version is £32,680 and comes with an extensive standard equipment list which includes 18-inch alloys, roof rails, powered tailgate, sunroof, bodycladding, 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system, Bluetooth, sat-nav, Starlink connectivity, adaptive cruise control, climate control, leather upholstery, auto emergency braking, and engine stop-start. The Outback comes over as a well-built no-nonsense contender with plenty of standard kit and Subaru’s top reputation for dependability.

NEW RANGE ROVER VELAR A new member of the Range Rover family has just arrived - the Velar - slotting in between the Evoque and the Range Rover Sport. This new mid-size luxury SUV will go on sale this summer, priced from £44,830. Stand-out design features include: • Debut of the state-of-the-art Touch Pro Duo infotainment system, featuring two high-definition 10-inch touchscreens for unrivalled functionality and intuitive operation • Light, stiff, aluminium-intensive body structure enhances performance, agility and efficiency • The 2,874mm wheelbase and intelligently-designed interior deliver a 632-litre luggage compartment and exceptional space for all occupants • Air suspension as standard on six-cylinder models; Adaptive Dynamics damping technology standard on all models for unrivalled comfort and control • All-wheel drive with Intelligent Driveline Dynamics and optional active locking rear differential ensure allterrain capability and maximum driver engagement on-road

• Six powertrains ranging from the clean, responsive 177hp 2.0-litre Ingenium diesel with CO2 emissions from only 142g/km, to the potent 375 hp supercharged 3.0-litre V6 petrol engine • Full suite of advanced safety systems including Autonomous Emergency Braking with pedestrian detection, Reverse Traffic Detection, and Driver Condition Monitoring


PREMIER SPORTS SOLUTIONS TALKS...

HANDS FREE!

ROAD TEST: SUZUKI S-CROSS Suzuki’s original S-Cross just didn’t look as sharp or as classy as its main rival, the Nissan Qashqai. But now a new version of the S-Cross is available and Suzuki has addressed those styling issues. New S-Cross has a bigger, bolder and much more noticeable front end, giving the model greater road presence, and inside there is a softer feel and more classy look to the dashboard and upgraded fabrics for the seats. The revised styling comes together well and widens the market for this type of car, which tends to appeal to more image-conscious buyers. Under the bonnet, the old 1.6 litre petrol engine has gone, replaced by turbocharged 1.0 or 1.4 litre units, with the smaller one offering less horsepower yet delivering better performance, and with reduced emissions and fuel consumption. The new 1.4 does better still in the pulling power stakes as well as offering 138 hp and a little more economy that the previous 1.6 litre engine. There is also a 1.6 litre 118 hp diesel available, mildly modified from last time and with slightly improved emissions. It produces combined fuel economy of 68.8 mpg combined. Four wheel drive is available as an option with all the engines. S-Cross prices start at £14,999 for a 1.0 litre version that comes with Bluetooth, digital radio, air conditioning, 16 inch alloy wheels, heated door mirrors and seven airbags. Mid-range models add satellite navigation, dual zone climate control, front and rear parking sensors, rear parking camera, rear privacy glass, bigger alloys and LED headlights. The top-spec S-Cross SZ5 All Grip features extra kit including leather trim, heated front seats, large opening glass sunroof and alloy roof

The latest clamp down on mobile phone users has been rolled out and rightly so. Well that’s the right thing to say of course and road safety should be paramount for everybody. But realistically, is your mobile phone the most dangerous distraction whilst driving? A question I asked myself while cursing at Siri, in an attempt to abide by the law and ended up shouting “no, I don’t want the French translation for the meaning of life”, when I’d simply asked her to call my wife. So, how many things go on in the cockpit of the car that could also be categorised as dangerous...clean suggestions only please, this is a family magazine. Joking apart, it’s not ok to use the phone, but it is ok to access the phonebook and last dialled numbers via the sat nav module. Both of which are usually down and to the left of the driver’s eye line. Some would suggest it was easier to grab the phone… Sat Nav itself is ideal if you take the time to set it up before the journey, but any adjustments en route will have your alloys drawing breath as you edge ever closer to the mangling kerb. Glove boxes and foot wells are both forbidden pits of driving danger, always stay away from rummaging around in them! The point here is, at all times our hands should be safely on the wheel. Car manufacturers have recognised this for some time now and there isn’t a luxury car on the market that doesn’t have some form of voice recognition built in, either for your phone, Sat Nav, or both. Music can be played directly through the car and controlled by multi-function steering wheels. We have supplied cars that will manage your text messages too, so no excuse there. You don’t even have to look back and take one hand off the wheel when reversing with most factory fitted parking cameras surrounding your pride and joy, working alongside that paranoid beep we trust so much to protect our bumpers. We are in a world where hands free is easier than ever, so there really is no reason to have that little electronic device, that we occasionally use to actually speak to people, in our hands whilst driving. If you don’t already know what your car can do, or if you are considering a new one, please ask your local dealer to go through every function. The Premier Sports Team are extensively briefed in all things hands free, for all marques. It’s not just for saving your license, or even the latest way to help government funds, but there may be just one thing in your car right now, which you don’t know about, that could save a life.

rails among an extensive standard features list. My SZ5 4x4 test model cost £22,849 and had the 1.4 litre engine and 6-speed manual gearbox. The 0-60 mph time is a nippy 10.2 seconds, top speed 124 mph and combined fuel economy is 50.4 mpg combined. The cabin is roomy front and rear and the 430 litre boot is a decent size and can be expanded to 875 litres by dropping the rear seats. I found the S-Cross very pleasant to drive – smooth, quiet and responsive, with composed cornering and a comfortable ride. What was especially impressive was its precise light-touch agility which made it effortless to drive.

HEALTH & BEAUTY The latest beauty tips and treatments from the owner of Chic Beauty Salon & Academy, Sophie Tamagna

FACIAL OILS

Facial Oils have long been the secret behind the radiant glow of our favourite A-listers, including Catherine Zeta Jones, Cate Blanchett and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge. Whether you’ve started to notice the first fine lines appear, or you’re looking for the one product to really reduce deep-set wrinkles, a Facial Oil could be the answer to your prayers. Even those with oily or shiny skin could benefit from using Facial Oil. Believe it or not, the right oil can rebalance the skin’s natural oil content for a noticeably more radiant complexion. Over time, oils can help clear pores of excess sebum and can reduce inflammation and irritation. As well as its anti-ageing properties, a few drops of facial oil can give dry, matte foundations a new dewy lease of life, saving you money on products in the long run. Another top tip is to dab a drop or two on top of your foundation and blusher, to give a youthful sheen to cheekbones. Much is made of the skin-calming and reviving powers of oil (and rightly so, nothing quenches dry skin as effectively) but less is said about the psychological benefits a natural facial oil can bestow on you too. Taking a moment before bed to take a few deep breaths and massage in a blend of essential oils can be the difference between a quiet mind and sound night’s sleep or the restless alternative.

CHIC Beauty Salon & Academy of Beauty

Oils can work well for all skin types. The right one for you should sink in nicely with a little facial massage and be absorbed by morning; if it just sits on the skin, it’s probably too heavy. But most are best applied at night to give them time to sink in and to prevent a messy make-up slip ‘n’ slide. Like serums, they tend to be expensive across the board due to their focus on pure, natural ingredients, but their potency means that a bottle lasts much longer than you might expect.

My Must-Have Facial Oil Dermalogica Phyto Replenish Oil RRP £62 This feather-light treatment oil rapidly absorbs to reinforce the skin’s protective barrier. Wear it alone or layered under foundation for all-day dewy skin. Next-generation formula takes a threephase approach to replenishing protective lipids that are depleted by aging and environmental stress. First, Phyto actives from Camellia and Tamanu oils help restore the skin’s natural barrier. Then, an essential lipid blend that includes Orchid Flower and Chia Seed Oil smooth’s visible lines and locks in critical moisture. Finally, Sunflower, Rice Bran and Rosemary Extracts create a luminous antioxidant shield against free radical damage. Ideal for daily use on normal to dry skin.

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.
