BRYANT INTERIOR FURNISHINGS GOING FROM STRENGTH TO STRENGTH, NOW RECRUITING! Due to the huge success and demand for Bryant Interior Furnishing they are now looking to recruit an office manager.

Gary Fisher, managing director of Dorset firm GF Electrical has set his sights on completing ‘The Oner’ on Saturday April 8, a self-proclaimed ‘brutal event’ to raise funds for the Motor Neurone Disease Association. Gary was inspired to push himself to the limits and out of his comfort zone with just six weeks to train, to raise awareness for the charity when he heard of local estate agent Danny Fudge-Harman’s diagnosis with the disease. Gary commented: “I like a challenge and I’ve completed a number of triathlons and extreme events over the years, but on hearing of Danny’s diagnosis it knocked me for six - so I decided to put my fitness and midlife crisis to good use and raise as much awareness and funds as possible for the charity.”

participate in such a monumental event is just incredible. This disease has turned our lives upside down but the actions of people like Gary give you hope that someday they may find a cure.” Gary added: “The disease has also touched me personally over the years as my best friend’s dad died a few years back from the disease and a former work colleague is still fighting the diagnosis - so the Motor Neurone Disease Association is certainly a charity close to my heart.” To ensure he is prepared for the event Gary has enlisted the help of a professional coach to put him through his paces. He trains six times a week and runs on average 80 miles per week. To sponsor Gary, please visit www.virginmoneygiving.com/gfelectrical

According to The Oner, the 82-mile route is ‘the mother of all ultra-trail runs’ taking participants over the Jurassic coastline from Charmouth to Studland with more than 10,000ft of ascent. Only 50 per cent of runners complete the course in the 24-hour time limit. Daniel Fudge-Harman, director at Key Drummond Estate Agents at Canford Cliffs, said: “I have known Gary for a number of years and cannot thank him enough for his generosity. For someone to give up his time to train and to

RNLI’S FIRST EVER BEACH-BASED OBSTACLE COURSE GOES DOWN A STORM IN BOURNEMOUTH! Hundreds of participants took on the first ever RNLI Sandstorm yesterday (Sunday 26 March), which saw Bournemouth Beach transformed into a strenuous seaside assault course. Organised by lifesaving charity the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI), the exciting challenge provided the ultimate test of physical endurance, mental grit and teamwork. Sandstorm’s specially-designed course presented 20 obstacles over a 5K or 10K circuit, pushing the limits of physical and mental strength as participants crawled, climbed and battled over the sandy terrain. Sandstormers worked together in their attempt to conquer fun but demanding obstacles including climbing walls, sand dunes, a cargo net, crossbeams and a slalom. The course found Sandstormers wading through a pit of sand and water with Swamped; hauling themselves over a 3m high timber wall on Coastal Clamber; using cargo nets to scramble up a mound of sand before sliding down the tarpaulin on The Slipway; running across beams suspended over an open pit on The Crossbeam; and testing their ability to shift a heavy weight with The Long Haul – to name just a few! Nathan Jones, 20, from Portsmouth, took on the challenge. He said: ‘It was definitely a challenge, but so much fun, I loved it! Running on sand was really tough, and some of my team almost gave up, but we helped each other and pushed to the end. Plus, it’s so rewarding doing it for a charity like the RNLI. They go out every day to help us, so it’s good to give something back. I’m hoping to do the 10K next year!’ Sandstorm is organised by the RNLI and will help support the charity’s lifesaving work.

Christopher Biggins will also reveal all in his memoir and in conversation with TV and radio presenter Judi Spears.

Humphries Kirk has been situated in the county town for many years and our staff and clients particularly look forward to the festival. We are delighted to be involved with it again.” Humphries Kirk is a firm of solicitors with offices in Dorchester, Crewkerne, Wareham, Swanage, Poole, Parkstone, Bournemouth and London.

DOLPHIN SHOPPING CENTRE IS PLATINUM SPONSOR OF THE MAYOR OF POOLE’S MARITIME BALL

The sponsorship will go towards the cost of the event which is set to host 400 local people at the prestigious black tie gala. Guests will be treated to a Champagne and gin reception, catering by Beales Gourmet, and live music from Soul Machine. The aim of the ball is to raise funds for three local charities – Lewis-Manning Hospice, Chestnut Nursery and Waggy Tails Rescue. The Dolphin Shopping Centre has also selected Lewis-Manning Hospice and Chestnut Nursery as its nominated charities to support in 2017. Cllr Xena Dion, Mayor of Poole commented: “I was truly thrilled to hear that Dolphin Shopping Centre has come forward as the title sponsor for the Poole Maritime Ball. This event is set to be the one to be seen at and is attracting a huge amount of attention.

Diverse Abilities, Dorset’s disability charity, is over the moon to have been chosen as charity of the year by Purbeck Ice Cream. As part of the partnership Diverse Abilities will be receiving tubs of ice cream across its services for children and adults with disabilities, their siblings and families to enjoy all year through. Staff at the charity will also be able to enjoy the ice cream in exchange for a donation.

Katharine Jones, partner at Humphries Kirk, said: “Each year The Dorchester Literary Festival gets better and better. Over time, it has become a prominent feature in the town’s social calendar.

The Dolphin Shopping Centre has announced its platinum sponsorship of the Mayor of Poole’s Maritime Ball on Saturday May 13 at Poole Lighthouse.

PURBECK ICE CREAM CHOOSE TO SUPPORT DIVERSE ABILITIES

“Sponsors will be seen as true community players and we know that the Dolphin Shopping Centre continues to make a considerable contribution to local charities. The Centre is going from strength to strength and has attracted some significant names in retail recently which will get more people into Poole.” To book a place, please visit www. poolemaritimeball.com. The event includes a three course dinner with a Champagne and gin Reception and wines on the tables. Tickets start at £80.00 for an individual ticket to £650.00 for a table of 10. Corporate business tables are available at £1000.00 for a table of 10.

Purbeck Ice Cream is the perfect treat for everyone at Diverse Abilities and has more than one type of enjoyment. For those with complex disabilities, who can’t eat orally, it provides a wonderful sensory experience of tasting and smelling different favours and feeling cold in the mouth. For everyone else, it is a real pleasure to be able to try and enjoy different flavours. Look out for Diverse Abilities at local community events over summer as you will be able to purchase small tubs of ice cream in exchange for a donation, to help raise funds for the charity.

PROPERTIES WANTED IN RINGWOOD! Goadsby Lettings in Ringwood are pleased announce a great start to the New Year! Due to a busy start to the year they require more properties for waiting professional applicants. The lack of quality rental properties on the market at present coupled with the sustained high levels of demand are keeping prices relatively high. Chris Smith, Lettings Manager “The trend so far this year has been a demand for two and three bedroom family homes that are pet friendly and for high end one and two bedroom flats.” Many applicants are searching for stable long term lets with applicants considering signing for longer initial term lets. If you have a property, which you are considering letting out or would like a free no obligation market appraisal, please do not hesitate to contact Rhianna on: 01425 470283 or by email chris.smith@ goadsby.com

Dorset-based charity, Diverse Abilities, is gearing up for this year’s Great Dorset Bake Sale and launching the 2017 event on Thursday 6 April at the Cosy Club Bournemouth at 10am. The launch will give the opportunity for keen bakers to find out how to get involved, enjoy a cuppa and some cake.

The launch event also welcomes guest speaker Sadie Smith, parent to James who is supported by Diverse Abilities and founder of Cake by Sadie. She also used to work for the charity and was part of

the team that came up with the idea of the Great Dorset Bake Sale six years ago, of which the charity has been running the initiative ever since. The launch event will also be a great opportunity to sample delicious treats, to learn more about the charity’s recipe book ‘Scrumptious Home Baking’ and find out about the Great Dorset Bake Sale initiative and how the funds raised from bake sales across the county will be used to benefit those living with physical and learning disabilities.

We look for good communicators, a willingness to learn, those who are self-motivated and adaptable as well as a good personality and a pinch of common sense.

In the past year alone the A-One Academy has employed five apprentices, they have all taken part in the scheme and shown impressive improvements in their knowledge of the industry and in their personal growth, all five have been given promotions and additional responsibilities far beyond what A-One Insurance Group had originally planned and expected and they are all a part of the integral team.

SPRING MARKET – WHAT’S IN STORE? Whilst many investors and second home buyers were hoping that Philip Hammond would perform a U-turn on the unpopular stamp duty levy imposed on the purchase of second properties, this was sadly not to be the case. Furthermore, the thousands of Landlords who had their fingers crossed that there may be a reprieve on the legislation being introduced in April resulting in tax relief on mortgage interest payments being phased out, were also disappointed. The Chancellor is known for being a cautious man and with Brexit still at the top of the agenda, it appeared that he was concentrating on laying the ground for Theresa May to begin formal negotiations for the UK to leave the EU rather than offering any giveaways! However, the growth forecast remains positive with predictions of the UK economy growing by 2% throughout 2017. House prices have continued to increase and the number of tenants seeking properties in the Private Rented Sector is at an alltime high. Whilst the stock market has been a positive investment for many over the last twelve months, it can still be a volatile choice whereas property still appears to remain an excellent long term investment.

This is naturally having an upward effect on property values. Whilst the Government’s initiative in increasing stamp duty on second properties was to give first time buyers a better chance of getting on the ladder, the increased property values are in fact making this task harder. This is resulting in an ever increasing and unsustainable demand for rental properties. The knock on effect being; higher rents and a shortage of stock available in the Private Rented Sector making buy-to-let investments, particularly for cash investors, more attractive, despite the increased costs in stamp duty. I do however believe there will be a number of mortgaged landlords being forced into selling over the coming two years as the tax relief on mortgage interest is phased out. This will undoubtedly make certain investment properties unviable resulting in an increase in the number of properties available to buy. Whether this will level off the prices, only time will tell although I believe the number of cash investors still opting for property as their preferred investment vehicle will continue to remain high.

There is still a supply and demand issue with current available stock levels hugely down on previous years, yet applicant numbers are steadily increasing.

In summary, the Spring Budget has had little effect on the property market and in my opinion, certainly for the spring and summer months, the market will continue to remain a strong seller’s market. Naturally Brexit is on people’s minds however the effects of this will hugely depend on how the negotiations to leave the EU progress and it is likely to be some time before this filters through to the property market so in short, if you are considering selling or letting your property, now is a good time to do so!

LIVING WITH MOTOR NEURONE DISEASE Danny Fudge-Harman of Key Drummond speaks out about his experience

Note to reader: This was an incredibly heartbreaking piece to write. What I’ve since learnt of those suffering with this cruel disease has opened my eyes to something most of us will never have to think about. Despite this, I think that the most astonishing part of this interview was Danny’s outlook. His ability to remain cool, calm and positive throughout our talk (unlike myself) was a testament to his bravery. By the time our interview concluded, it was evident that I was in the presence of an incredibly selfless man, one hoping to make a difference and leave a lasting legacy. Danny is a beacon of hope, not just for those suffering MND, but to all of us. Whatever hardships we might be enduring, his story encourages us to implore some perspective in our lives and to take stock of what truly matters.

“Ok, This has taken me over a year to post, something I wish wasn’t happening but feel as though it’s time to share, so here goes. We all think we are immortal and think ‘it won’t happen to me’. Three years ago that was me; beautiful wife, beautiful children and a great life, all was good until I started to suffer from a disease that can only be described as a silent killer, Motor Neurone Disease. A horrible, degenerative disease that eats away at your muscles until such as you can no longer function. This is a terminal disease, no cure,

no second chances […] My life will physically become difficult and my time shortened, but like most things I will never give up and will never give in. I hope that some day (really soon would be helpful) a cure will be found but in the meantime we carry on…” (Extract from Danny’s Facebook post) Danny held onto this message for over a year, editing it almost daily. Returning to it as a kind of outlet for all of the things he wanted to say. It sat in the notes on his phone until he decided to finally post it on his personal Facebook page, just three weeks ago. I read this status for the first time at the start of our interview and I can’t even begin to imagine what was going through Danny’s mind when he finally decided to post this. The pressure of conveying such a difficult subject, to people who had no idea what he had been carrying around with him for almost three years, must have been torturous. There are so many people out there, myself included, who don’t know enough about Motor Neurone Disease, can you explain it to us? MND is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that attacks the upper and lower motor neurons. Degeneration of

We, at Key Drummond, aim to support this foundation and will do whatever it takes to support Danny and his family.

the motor neurons leads to weakness and wasting of muscles, causing increasing loss of mobility in the limbs, and difficulties with speech, swallowing and breathing. The muscles first affected tend to be those in the hands (which is where mine had started), feet and mouth, dependent on which type of the disease you are diagnosed with. The effects of MND can vary enormously from person to person, for instance mine is relevantly slow, but from the presenting symptoms, and the rate and pattern of the disease progression, to the length of survival time after diagnosis life expectancy is from two to five years from onset of symptoms. Are there everyday things that are more difficult? The disease has wasted the muscle in both my arms which makes the easiest of tasks impossible. Things we all take for granted like, writing, tying shoe laces and turning door keys, which is somewhat of a problem being an estate agent! LEFT: Danny Fudge-Harman with his niece BELOW: Gary Fisher, MD of GF Electrical with Danny Fudge-Harman

Facing life with a terminal illness is hard but that is the hand that I have been dealt. I have learnt so much about myself since my diagnosis mentally, emotionally and physically. I am so lucky to have the support of my beautiful wife, children and family, the fantastic Key Drummond team and amazing friends who have gone above and beyond to help and support me. What are you’re intentions for the foundation? With the support network I have it is my intension to set up a foundation, not just to help me, but for others locally who are suffering from MND. This idea is in its early stages but something that I feel very passionately about, the MNDA is the only national registered charity, which does an incredible job nationwide, but I would like to help more people locally. I lost a colleague and very good friend a few years ago through MND and know of other people locally who have this

terrible disease who could benefit both financially and emotionally from this foundation. I intend to start raising the money through Key Drummond of which I am a Director. A small proportion of all commissions will go into the foundation which will then be utilized accordingly. I also intend to raise money via fundraising and other events. Some people think I’m mad and that I should just concentrate on me and my family and not add to my already stressful situation, but if I can help others as well as myself, then it will make it all worthwhile. The way you speak about your family is lovely, I take it they are your biggest motivators? My wife Helen and our families have been amazing, it’s obviously difficult with the children but they know that daddy’s arms are bad. My family means everything to me, and the harder I fight this disease, the more time I get to spend with them. Current Fundraising for Danny and MNDA. My niece, Daisy Fudge has just completed the Silverstone half marathon which was just incredible raising in excess of £5000 for the mnda association. Gary Fisher, managing director of GF Electrical has set his sights on completing ‘The Oner’ on Saturday April 8, a self-proclaimed ‘brutal event’ to raise funds for the Motor Neuron Disease Association. Gary was inspired to push himself to the limits and out of his comfort zone, to raise awareness for the charity when he heard about my diagnosis. Gary commented: “I like a challenge and I’ve completed a number of triathlons and extreme events over the years,

but on hearing of Danny’s diagnosis it knocked me for six – so I decided to put my fitness and midlife crisis to good use and raise as much awareness and funds as possible for the charity.” Please help and support Gary by donating to virginmoneygiving.com/ gfelectrical. We will be running regular updates on Danny and Key Drummond’s efforts towards setting up the foundation, watch this space.

ASK THE EXPERT... About Using a BAR member

Steve Webber, Director of Maidmans Moving & Storage Steve has many years’ experience in the moving and storage industry. He offers the following advice about the importance of using a BAR Member when choosing a removals company. Steve says: The British Association of Removers (BAR) is the industry’s trade body and its members are required to meet the following standards for quality and service: • To provide you with a clear description, price and timetable for the work carried out. • To offer insurance or other protection options. • To provide suitable quality materials for packing. • That the standard of vehicles and warehouses meet BAR requirements • To provide professionally trained staff. • What you should do if things go wrong. And naturally, the Code requires all BAR members to be courteous, competent, and committed to providing a high standard of service.

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

Steve said: “If you are moving outside of the UK it’s very important your removal company is a member of the BAR Overseas group, as non-overseas group members only offer guarantees on UK Moves; BAR Overseas member customers are protected for moves worldwide. Maidmans adhere to the BAR code of Practice and have been recognised by our industry peers on many occasions including winning the prestigious Domestic Mover of the Year competition twice. Moving home is a potentially stressful experience but choosing an established quality removal company who are members of the British Association of Removers (BAR) will minimise the risks and your stress levels on the day”.

ASK THE EXPERT...

SHOULD I EXTEND MY LEASE? Emma Crowley from Bruce Lance

Judging whether or not a lease extension makes good financial sense is a thorny issue for many flat-owners. Emma Crowley (above left) from Bruce Lance in Poole will help you decide. As most flat owners are aware, a lease is a depreciating asset: the value of the lease decreases in line with the remaining term. The cost of extending the lease can also increase as the time left on the lease diminishes. This leaves many flat-owners facing the question of whether they should bite the bullet and incur the cost of extending their lease, or whether they should leave it for the next owner and hope the short lease doesn’t impact too adversely on the value of their flat. If you have owned the property for two years, you have a legal right to extend the lease to 90 years. You will need to serve a notice on the landlord, which must include specific information. We recommend that you take legal advice in order to get this right first time. The issue of extending a lease often arises when you come to sell the property. If a lease has less than 70 years left on the term, then you may have problems selling it without a lease extension. Mortgage lenders have varying policies, but many will refuse to lend on a leasehold property that has less than 65 years remaining on the term. The prospect of having to pay for a lease extension in the near future can also deter prospective buyers. Sometimes, when a leasehold property is sold with a short term remaining on the lease, the buyer and seller agree to share the cost of the lease extension. However, in most cases, the liability falls solely to the seller. Trying to tie in a lease extension with a property sale can cause significant delays to the sale transaction and possibly jeopardise it entirely, so it is certainly something worth thinking about in advance. If you think that your lease may need extending, please contact myself or Sarah March-Paschal at Bruce Lance solicitors to discuss the necessary steps. We will be happy to provide a free estimate of costs for the work involved.

ASK THE EXPERT...

HOMELINE MORTGAGES Families are increasingly assisting first time buyers onto the property ladder. A mortgage can now be cheaper than renting so it’s a good idea. HOUSE asked mortgage consultant Jordan Tuttle from Homeline Mortgages for some useful hints and tips. 5 ways to help your children, grandchildren or family member buy their first home 1. Contributing to the deposit payment If you can afford to gift money towards or for the deposit on purchasing a property then this is a simple way to help. A ‘gifted deposit’ requires you to sign a written agreement so that lenders can see this is not a loan. If you are able to put down the deposit this will help with mortgage affordability on the remaining loan. Alternatively you might be in a position to gift some funds, so for example, if the family member has saved a 5% deposit you could top this up to 10%, which will give them more mortgage options. 2. 100% guarantor mortgages Some lenders offer a guarantor mortgage where a charge is placed against your home and your child can then borrow against a combination of their own income and assets as well as yours. They could then be eligible for a 100% mortgage. The risk is that you are guaranteeing that your child’s mortgage repayments will be made and therefore personally liable for the repayments if they are not made. In the event of non-payment, the guarantor’s home will also be at risk. 3. Family offset mortgages A family offset mortgage is a type of mortgage which enables parents to offset the value of their savings against their child’s mortgage, so they may pay less interest. This is because their savings offset the sum of the mortgage that interest is charged on. Some people are opting for this model whilst interest on savings remains at a low rate. 4. Equity charge A small number of lenders will consider an equity charge. This is where they will put a collateral charge on the family home instead of their child paying a deposit.

THE NEW GENERATION LED technology is moving at an incredible pace and for some time the goal was to produce 100 lumens per watt of energy, this is now easily surpassed and the top brands are on their way to 200 lumens per watt. We have just seen the first of a new generation of LEDs, these ones are powered directly from 240Vac (mains voltage). Traditionally LEDs have been powered by low DC voltages, typically 3.3V per LED in the high powered range, but now the larger COB LEDs are designed to run at high AC voltages. One of the main advantages of this is that the LED now no longer needs a driver or transformer to run it, this of course has a major cost and space advantage. We have the latest downlights and floodlights in stock here that are driverless technology, they are much slimmer in design and also much quicker to install. Performance is just as good as the low voltage cobs and certainly in the case of the floodlights cost has come down dramatically. For example a 10W floodlight, as in our showroom window, is producing nearly 1000 lumens and is just one inch in depth. This product would replace the bulky (and ugly) 100W halogen floodlights that we all have at home as security or floodlighting. We are selling them at just £13.50 each!!! We are stocking them at 10, 20, 30 and 50 Watts.

5. Equity Release If you are 55 years of age or over and have substantial equity in your property, you could consider releasing some tax free cash to help your family member buy their first home. We are well placed to give you the professional advice you need so that you can consider all options available to allow you to release the equity needed.

Come on in and ask to be shown the new driverless range to witness the next step forward in LED lighting.

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.

76

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. 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

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, Ruby asks, “Should I let my flat furnished or unfurnished?” Dear Ruby, It really is down to your personal situation as a Landlord to decide how you want to market your rental property – however, there are some things to consider when deciding what is the best option for you. On a positive side, renting your property furnished may be more attractive to tenants as it will save them money and time having to kit out their new home – this may in turn increase the interest in your property. Although, the flip side of this is that seasoned renters may already have a raft of their own goods to bring with them. In this situation, your agent can guide you and would-be tenants in agreeing what is kept and what is put into storage/re-homed based on what is most convenient for both parties. An unfurnished property may appeal to tenants who are looking to create their own personal style in their home. This can result in a longer-term let as an investment has been made in terms of financial outlay for the items but also a personal attachment. The other positive of this is that there is no onus on you to insure or maintain the furnishings – you will not have to think about wear and tear or damage to your items, which may be quite appealing. The final option is to maintain a level of flexibility and offer the property part-furnished dependant on the tenant’s individual situation – we at Foxes Sales & Lettings have many years of experience, 20 in fact, of working with and on behalf of tenants and landlords to create a long-lasting and mutually beneficial let. 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 you your very own Monty the fox – email belen.robbins@foxes.co.uk with the page number that you found Monty on to be entered into the draw. Good Luck!

TALKING BUSINESS

HOUSE ASKS…

WHAT CAN ODYSSEY HOMES DO FOR YOU? Our neighbourhoods are evolving. In the midst of a housing crisis the government is encouraging developers to replace once characteristic properties, with two or three indistinguishable newbuilds. The result? Unrecognisable neighbourhoods and heartless homes. Property Development does present land and homeowners with an opportunity to make healthy profits, but what if there was a way for you to make money on your own home, without selling it? What if the somewhat tired property you have acquired could be turned into something special? Enter, Odyssey Homes. We caught up with owner and designer ‘Chris Richardson’ to find out more about this pioneering company and their new initiative.

88

We met Chris outside APOLLO; a luxury home that he has located and built specifically for a private client.

APOLLO is a shining example of what you do; can you talk us through the design? Yes of course. We retain as much of the original property as possible. Granted there is very little of the aesthetic of the original property left, but we have utilised the majority of the original structure. 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. Good architecture will withstand the test of time. Therefore, by using materials such as glass, aluminium and stone we are able to construct a building that will match t hat longevity. This property began as a 1,800sq’ arts and crafts bungalow. It is now a lofty two story state of the art contemporary home of 2,800sq’ complete with remodelled garden, double garage and a 2.5 story atrium. The contemporary

feel continues internally with liberal use of floor to ceiling glass, porcelain tiles and bespoke handmade furniture. Every piece of furniture is completed to a high specification, creating a contemporary look. How long did this project take to complete? From the moment we received planning permission to handing over the keys; 6 months.

Before

You mentioned custom-made furnishings? Yes, we actually have our very own in-house factory where we design and build all of our kitchens. We want to ensure that our kitchens and bespoke furniture is made to our exceedingly high-standards, which is why we like to keep things in the Odyssey Homes family. What kind of value can be added to a Property? Were you to purchase a bungalow for around £600K and spend approx. £400K on the transformation, you could expect the final value of the property somewhere upwards of £1.2M.

01202 674369 info@odysseyhomes.co.uk

However, I believe the true value is in the fact that by buying and converting a property through Odyssey Homes, our clients can get a home that has been designed and built specifically for them. What makes Odyssey Homes unique to the development sector? We don’t work on behalf of a third-party 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 the client’s personal needs. We project manage the entire build from planning application to completion ensuring that it remains on budget, hassle free and quality controlled. After all, our reputation is at stake and delivering beautiful, bespoke homes, is at the core of our philosophy. 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.

BUBBLE YOUR TROUBLES AWAY WITH...

KIKBUILD In Association With Four Corners It’s no secret that the average working week is becoming increasingly more difficult. Hours are longer and you’re probably taking work home with you too. Our weekends are now more precious than ever, for that little piece of rest and relaxation. Imagine having a place where you can go and fade your stresses into the background – in your very own home, garden, to be more precise. Four corners are offering state of the art hot tubs, saunas and spas – shipped all the way from Norway, from the best manufacturer in Europe. They will fully set-up and install your chosen model, ready for all year round leisure. As effusively knowledgeable builders by trade, their team of dedicated workman can

even offer a bespoke decking, gazebo or platform to house your spa from variable weather or simply for a little added look of luxury. You can even opt to really luxe up your garden with a range of lavish outdoor furniture, all available on their website. They offer a ginormous range of truly unique spas, with a lot of different capabilities. Everything from giant barrel shaped saunas (ideal for those typically colder British evenings), to hot tubs with mood enhancing lights, jets and more: even cup holders, for the odd spa-side refreshment. It’s the ultimate indulgence after a painful working week. Some models even have special features that massage and ease the discomfort of back pain.

We make the decision easy for you, by offering huge discounts on all our products you can be safe knowing you have saved yourself a lot of money by choosing to buy through us. 92


HOME IMPROVEMENTS

These spas start at 4 metres long and go all the way up to 7.2 metres (ample room for even the tallest person), so you’ll have plenty of space to let loose and enjoy a thorough workout. What’s truly ideal about these nifty spas is that you don’t even need to dig into the ground; they stand just like a regular hot tub, above ground. The products truly speak for themselves, so if you are interested in taking a look at what is on offer, then take a look at their range via the KikBuild website: www.kikbuild.co.uk No project is too big or too small for their team. They welcome enquiries, whether you are ready to get your project underway or merely in the curiosity phase, call them to talk you through your ideas.

Where to find them? 306 Ringwood Road, Dorset, BH22 9AS

Ferndown,

Besides the relaxation factor, Four Corners also offer the latest at home fitness innovation product to hit the market so far…It’s common knowledge that swimming is a stellar form of exercise, with far less muscle strain than working yourself silly at the gym. Then again, the idea of squeezing oneself into a slinky one piece or a pair speedos isn’t always worth the price of a brand new ‘beach ready’ body - just another reason to find a new at home fitness regime. So, let’s say you love the idea of a swimming pool in your back garden, but don’t quite have the space (let alone the time and costs of construction), what if there was another way? Introducing: The ‘Swimspa’… Not only does it act as tranquil hot tub, but it also doubles up as a compact pool. The powerful pumps generate a strong current, allowing you to swim in place for an exceptional workout. Think of it like swimming against a wave, you’ll stay in the same spot, but can maintain a continuous stroke – how long you decide to swim for, is up to you.

PRIMOVE Landlords, check your tenant's Right to Rent

Landlords, as of the 1st April you must check that a tenant or lodger can legally rent your residential property in England. Before the start of a new tenancy, you must check all tenants aged 18 and over, even if: • They are not named on the tenancy agreement • There is no tenancy agreement • The tenancy agreement isn’t in writing • This also includes sitting tenants who renew their tenancy

PRIMOVE

The HMRC are issuing £3000 fines to anyone not complying with this so call PRIMOVE today to organise your checks to stay on the right side of the law. For more information about the Right to Rent scheme visit www.gov.uk/ check-tenant-right-to-rent-documents

At PRIMOVE we are offering to do the Right to Rent check for FREE to assist all landlords, including private landlords and landlords whose properties are currently managed by another letting agent. T. 01202

PROPERTY HEALTH CHECK It has arrived! The new tax to landlords on mortgage relief has started! The government have not exercised a u-turn on this and they are not going to, because frankly they need the money! For the tax year 17/18 you will lose 25% relief on your mortgage interest. And an extra 25% for each following year until 2020 when it will be 100% non-deductible. And there is more…. You will now have to add your rent received to your earnings, which will tip many landlords into the 40% tax bracket. For some landlords this may tip them over in 2020. For example, rent received £1000.00 less mortgage interest of £500.00 last year meant the tax man only say the profit as £500.00. In 2020, £1000.00 rent received, tax man sees this is profit (even though you still have a mortgage to pay). • • • • •

Do you have a mortgage on your investment property? Will the new tax rules take you into the 40% tax bracket? Are you legally compliant with all legislations? Is your rental property Legionnaires Tested? Will your EPC rating stop you legally renting out your property?

Over the last couple of months I have met with many landlords to audit their property portfolio. Some have decided to sell a couple of their investments, some have decided to buy in a limited company, some have had free insulation to make their property EPC compliant and some have had a complete overhaul of their legal tenancy paperwork. There is no downside to having a property health check, an audit on your portfolio, whether it be one property or multiple properties.

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.

TEA WITH…

CUSTOM WORLD, THE SPACE EXPERTS We sat down with the team at ‘Custom World’ in Ferndown to find out more about their approach to designing, making and fitting quality, bespoke furniture.

Crafted With Care Custom World is a local company, manufacturing and fitting furniture since 1982. Every piece of furniture is handcrafted in their workshop situated behind their Ferndown showroom. Their skilled team of craftsmen takes great pride when creating your perfect storage solutions, fixing every last nut, bolt and lever together, by hand. In a world where machines have replaced an enormous proportion of the manufacturing industry, it’s pretty special and furthermore unique, to have your furniture produced piece by piece by an actual human being.

Exceeding Expectations Almost 50% of their customers last year were existing clients or recommendations – a great sign that when you choose Custom World, you’re not only buying into a local independent business, but one who will also go above and beyond to meet your furniture needs and desires. Take Brian for example, from their design team, “The best part of my job is being able to exceed expectations. To look at a space and create a storage solution that they couldn’t ever have imagined”. This was an ethos shared

amongst the design team, who has a common satisfaction for creating furniture that utilises and enhances its surroundings. Similar to the joy one receives when all of the pieces of the puzzle fit perfectly together. “It’s about being sympathetic to the room”, Brian commented, “...It’s about creating solutions, beyond the colours and materials”, by which he means thinking more in-depth about the purpose of the product. Considering things such as how many clothes the client has. How the mechanisms need to function for ease – anything and everything that creates a resolution to a client’s storage problems. “My favourite projects aren’t necessarily the large projects. It’s the ones where you get to know them as a person. Where you really understand their individual needs and knowing we can help”.

Meet The Team; One Big Family Ownership changed to their now directors ‘Suzy and Fatmir’ a little under a year ago. Both of who have worked their way up through the company, gaining knowledge in various departments, which is what makes them such ideal directors. Fatmir, for example, began his Custom World career as a fitter in their workshop. He then went on to become one of the company’s best designers until his most recent progression. When the opportunity arose he decided to take

over the business in 2016 with Suzanne. She also has a similar story, firstly managing the Accounts department and working her way up to co-owner. Suzanne is proud to belong to a company who genuinely cares, “…I love that we don’t offer a hard sell. We’re here to listen to the needs of our customers and figure out the best possible solution for them”. So who else makes up the Custom World team? Well, meet their talented

design team; Charlotte, Rachel, Alick and of course Brian. Much like the directors, many of their design team has spent time working in different areas of the industry, getting to know the materials and products, and what they can do. This experience is in-valuable when designing jobs for clients. Not only are they space experts, but they also design onsite and offer you the opportunity to explore all options and ideas. It is pretty valuable actually being able to

We are dedicated to providing a professional and personal service to our past, present and future customers in the design and creation of our bespoke fitted furniture. 146

speak to someone with a wealth of inside knowledge, rather than playing Chinese whispers with a sales rep. In addition to their design team, their workshop is home to 15 talented craftsmen and fitters, all working tirelessly to create stunning, bespoke merchandise. And let’s not forget their admin team, who are the friendly face of the business, ready and waiting to take your calls. Why not contact them at their showroom and arrange for a designer to come and visit your home, Or even visit the team in Ferndown and see the quality products first-hand whilst enjoying a cup of tea or coffee!

DREAM KITCHENS & BATHROOMS A Guide to Redesigning Your Kitchen Are you planning a thorough kitchen makeover? Let us walk you through the process. Good kitchen design starts early, here are some basic design principles that will help you with the layout.

1. TRAFFIC A house is not an island; it requires frequent contact with the outside world, much of which is accomplished by car. An attached garage closely adjoining the kitchen or a back door opening on the driveway can reduce the burden of carrying groceries in and the trash out. A mud room can reduce kitchen traffic by acting as a staging area for trips into and out of the house. It offers a buffer from cold air, storage space for coats, hats, and boots and even pantry shelves for items you won’t be using immediately. Taking all this activity out of the kitchen provides more room for cooking and eating, which are, after all, a kitchen’s main events.

2. THE WORK TRIANGLE For most of the 20th century, kitchens were organised around what is known as the work triangle — the geometry determined by sink, range and refrigerator. Since most kitchen work is a dance among the three appliances, a good design will make the distances between them comfortable. If they’re too short, the work area will be cramped; if too far, the cook will become worn out trotting between them. The rule of thumb is that the three legs of the triangle should add up to between 12 and 26 feet. There are three basic layouts for the work triangle: U-shaped, L-shaped and galley. In the U-shaped kitchen, there’s a triangular path from the sink on one wall to the range on another, to the refrigerator on a third. In an L-shaped kitchen, one element of the work triangle is against one wall with the other two along another. In very tight circumstances, all three points are arranged along the same wall, like the cooking facilities on-board ship, thus the name galley kitchen. Ideally no traffic should pass through the work triangle. Nothing is more irritating than having people crash into you when you’re trying to cook. If there’s going to be an island or table in the room, place it where it will neither obstruct the work triangle nor be too far to be a useful work station itself.

154

Keep in mind that people not directly involved in cooking often need access to the kitchen, particularly the refrigerator. Of the three components of the work triangle, the refrigerator should be located at the triangle’s outer corner for easy access. The sink should be accessible as well, but the cooking surface

ought to be as protected as possible, and therefore at the most remote point of the work triangle.

3. NECESSARY GADGETS To function well, the sink, cook top and refrigerator each need to be surrounded with a certain amount of floor and counter space. The refrigerator door needs a clear swing and, if possible, enough room for two people to reach in simultaneously. The doors of any cabinets around the fridge should not conflict with its door. And the refrigerator also needs an 18inch run of counter as a staging area for foods going into or coming out of it. By custom, the sink is placed beneath a window, both to provide daylight for chores done there and to give one a view outdoors. I suppose the custom derives from the days before dishwashers, when the task of washing up was a tedious affair done by hand. Yet working at a sink with a window is still much more pleasant than working at a sink without one. Designers often place the sink first and lay out the rest of the work triangle from there. Minimum counter lengths are considered to be 36 inches on one side of the sink and 24 on the other, which gives you a staging area for dirty dishes on one side and a drying area on the other. It seems logical to locate the greatest expanse of counter on the side of the sink closest to the cook top, since that is where most foods prepared at the sink are destined. The optimum location for the cook top is along an exterior wall, rather than on an island or peninsula. With a stove on an outside wall, it’s easy to install an effective hood and ventilation system, essential to expel grease, smoke and combustion gases. The stove or cook top needs a 21 to 30 inch overhead clearance so cooks can readily see and access rear burners and the ventilation system can do its work efficiently.

primary work triangle so that someone can set the table without interrupting the cook. Professional cooks, who spend a great deal of time in their kitchens, prefer to have their utensils within easy reach. (Julia Child stows her knives on pegs above her sink.) Shelves or cabinets above the cook top can hold foods that aren’t affected by warmth, such as pasta, rice, and cereal. A shelf just below these cabinets but above the cook top can transform the space into a cooking workshop, providing a handy resting place for timers, spices, cooking supplies and implements. A large volume of kitchen goods can be stowed in a pantry, an efficient, relatively inexpensive means of storage. Since a pantry is essentially a closet lined with shelves, it’s easy on the budget. Also plan to reserve part of the pantry as a utility closet, where mops, brooms and cleaning supplies can be easily stored.

5. EATING IN Islands can serve as tables for informal meals. If it’s the height of conventional counters—36 inches— you’ll need stools and an ample overhang of about 12 inches to comfortably accommodate sitters’ knees. If you’re thinking about placing a table in your kitchen, here are some basic parameters: A rectangular table with a seating capacity of four to six should measure 2½ feet by 5 to 5½ feet. You’ll need 2½ to 3 feet of clearance all around for chairs and adequate circulation. A round table takes up less space but can accommodate more people if need be. Remember that a small increase in radius makes for a big increase in the circumference of the table and therefore the floor space it will take up.

If you plan to install a dishwasher, place it close to the sink. Where you choose to put it might depend on whether you’re right- or left-handed and on the path dishes are likely to take when cleared from the table. Also consider the choreography of two people loading and unloading the machine.

4. STORAGE AREAS Glassware and dishes should be stored in cabinets or shelves near the sink. Frequently used pots and pans could be stowed between the sink and cook top or from a hanging rack. Consider locating your silverware drawers close to the drying rack or dishwasher but out of the

ABOUT US 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 window business it was a natural progression for David. But it was his practicality and inquisitive nature that lead him 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, 158

specifically how it can be recycled and what it could be reused for.


OUTDOOR LIVING

He discovered that the USA and 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 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. A product that was both an environmentally friendly alternative to normal timber and sustainable, which meant it would save them a lot of money in the long term! The rest, as they say, is history.

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

MCLAREN VELOCITY

162

McLaren is highlighting the level to which buyers of its new Super Series will be able to personalise their car by unveiling a dramatic 720S Velocity version, created by McLaren Special Operations. The McLaren 720S ‘Velocity’ costs £335,000 as a bespoke factory model. “The mission is to fulfil customer desire for exclusivity in their choice of McLaren,” explained Ansar Ali, Managing Director of McLaren Special Operations. “The lean, sculpted beauty of the new 720S provides the perfect starting point for owners to be creative and the specification of this MSO 720S ‘Velocity’ showcases a taste of the customisation options that are possible.” The striking ‘Velocity’ paint theme comprises two pearlescent hues of red; a newly formulated shade, Nerello Red, is used on the front and upper body panels of the car – including on the red-tinted visual carbon fibre bonnet – and fades into a vivid Volcano Red that covers the sides and rear of the car. The unique paintwork is complemented by lightweight alloy wheels, finished in a subtle shade of metallic bronze. A range of exterior carbon fibre parts selected from the MSO collection also features on the 720S ‘Velocity’. Complementing the exterior theme, red highlights are continued throughout the interior, including the fascia, steering wheel, doors and across the sports seats.

ROAD TEST: PEUGEOT 3008 GT LINE Peugeot says its new 3008 will become ‘a key player’ in the booming SUV sector, and anyone who sees the car – a radically different design from its predecessor - and what it offers will find it hard to argue with that assertion, writes NICK FLETCHER. The 3008, priced from £21,795, is very well kitted with even the entry level Active model having driver attention alert, programmable cruise control and speed limiter, auto emergency braking, 12.3-inch digital instrument display and a separate 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, dual-zone climate control and rear parking sensors. Launched in two-wheel drive form, you can specify a Grip Control option which in effect provides a form of all-wheeldrive for slippery conditions. There are 1.2-litre and 1.6-litre turbo petrol engines and 1.6-litre and 2.0-litre diesels, each with two power versions. But while the 3008’s generous specification and multiple engine options are stand-out features, the car’s stunning external styling and refined driving dynamics give it the sort of appeal that takes it to the head of the class. It has a beautifully designed and rather futuristic-looking quality interior and latest technology, and offers practicality and versatility, and a smart upmarket appearance which exudes the cool persona the SUV market requires.

On the road, the 3008 – voted Car Of The Year at the Geneva Motor Show by 58 motoring journalists from 22 countries reveals a neat balance of ride comfort with lots of grip and composed handling, taking corners with minimal body pitch and tackling rough surfaces with aplomb, despite its raised ride-height. The 3008 is roomy for front and rear occupants and the boot space at 591 litres, is one of the largest in the sector and expands to a massive 1,670 litres with the rear seats folded. The top-seller is likely to be the 1.6 diesel but my test model was the three-cylinder 1.2 litre PureTech GT Line turbo-petrol version which packs 130 hp, has a nippy 0-60 mph time of 10.8 seconds and fuel economy of 55.4 mpg combined. It’s a smooth, fluent and surprising powerful engine arguably best suited to those who do mostly local driving when its agility, fuel economy and low running costs come to the fore. This sporty version is £25,495 and extra kit includes 3D satnav, exterior sports trim, LED self-levelling headlights, and smartphone charging plate. The new 3008 is an impressive new model in an SUV class already packed with impressive models, and I struggled to find any negative points.

NEW FIESTA DEBUT Making its showroom debut shortly, the next-generation Ford Fiesta. Priced from £12,715 for a Fiesta Style, the range continues through Zetec and Titanium to high-tech B&O PLAY series, luxury Vignale and sporty ST-Line models available this Summer. Ford says the Fiesta will be launched with the most sophisticated range of driver assistance technologies and connectivity features ever in a volume small car in Europe, as part of the most comprehensive line-up of variants in Fiesta’s 40-year history. It will be the first Ford to deliver an enhanced version of Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection that can detect people who are in or near the road ahead, or who may cross the vehicle’s path, using light from the Fiesta’s headlights at night. Also offered for the first time on Fiesta is Ford’s Active Park Assist with Perpendicular Parking, which helps drivers find suitable spaces and park hands-free nose-to-tail and side-by-side with other cars. Further enhanced for Fiesta, the technology can now apply the brakes if drivers do not respond to system guidance and proximity warnings while performing forward and reverse manoeuvres, and a collision with a parked car or obstacle to the front or rear is imminent.

The most popular Fiesta variant is the Zetec, with 58 per cent of customers of the current model opting for Zetec. This model will be priced from £14,215 with 15-inch alloy wheels, Quickclear heated windscreen and Ford’s SYNC 3 DAB radio with a 6.5in touchscreen with Emergency Assistance, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard. New Fiesta will for the first time be offered as an upscale Vignale model. Priced from £19,345, the Fiesta Vignale features 17in alloy wheels, unique exterior body styling and front grille and distinctive interior in Black Ruby leather, heated seats and steering wheel, panoramic roof and rear view camera as standard.

NEW JEEP DESERT HAWK

ROAD TEST: TOYOTA C-HR EXCEL Compact SUV models have experienced a massive sale boom in recent years and one of the latest contenders to attack this crowded sector is Toyota with its funkily-styled and headturning C-HR, writes NICK FLETCHER. The initials stand for Coupe High Rider and the model is clearly aimed at image-conscious buyers - which is just about everyone in the SUV and Crossover class! Cool and very distinctive styling gives this Toyota an edge, and with a more upmarket interior than many rivals and a choice of turbo-petrol or frugal hybrid engines, the C-HR has compelling appeal. Priced from £20,995, it is well-equipped even in entry level guise, but there should be plenty of demand for the upperspec versions which are laden with extra kit and a raft of technology and connectivity features for which many buyers are prepared to pay a premium. Indeed, my test model was in mid-range Excel trim, and with the 1.2 litre petrol engine costs £23,995. With options including leather upholstery, upgraded premium audio system and metallic paint, the total price was £26,190. The C-HR is similar in size to the Nissan Qashqai, the sector leader, which is a hard act to beat, but this Toyota does pack a few aces, notably a wow-factor wraparound

dashboard, stand-out exterior styling with rocket-shiptype protruding rear light clusters, and impressive driving dynamics. It has coupe design cues with a mix of curves and sharp angles, steeply sloping roofline and ‘hidden’ rear door handles. Beneath its smart exterior suit is the chassis used on the latest Toyota Prius, which on the C-HR delivers superb ride quality and assured handling. There is a 1.8 litre petrol-electic engine, likely to be the choice of around 75 per cent of buyers, but the 1.2 turbo-petrol in my test model has a lot to offer – 114 hp to give punchy performance, a 0-60 mph time of 10.9 seconds, top speed of 118 mph and fuel economy of 47.1 mpg combined. Front and rear occupants have plenty of space though the rear windows are quite small and restrict the view. The 377 litre bootspace is typical of class standards and the rear seats fold down for extra load versatility. All versions get alloy wheels and distinctive LED running lamps, climate and cruise control, automatic lights and wipers, an auto dimming rear view mirror and seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system. The Excel test model adds sat-nav, online connectivity, keyless entry, heated seats and park-assist among extra features.

Jeep has launched a new limited-edition Renegade model, the Desert Hawk. Only 100 will be available, priced at £28,995. It features 17-inch Low Gloss Black wheels, exclusive bonnet and rear body panel decals.Inside, the Renegade Desert Hawk is enhanced with exclusive seats in black leather and fabric – the seat base features a Moab desert map logo – with electric lumbar support for the driver. There is also a leather wrapped steering wheel, dual zone climate control, DAB UConnect radio with 6.5-inch touchscreen, Live services, Bluetooth and satnav, 7-inch full-colour thin-film transistor cluster display and cruise control. It has Jeep Active Drive Low with 20:1 crawl ratio; Selec-Terrain system which includes a Sand mode and an exclusive Rock mode, 8.7-inch ground clearance, skid plates, 8.1-inch wheel articulation, Hill-descent Control and 19inch water fording. The Renegade Desert Hawk comes as standard with a 170 hp 2.0-litre MultiJet diesel engine paired to a nine-speed automatic transmission.

BERRY BAKES BACK Viewers were left bereft when Mary Berry announced she wouldn’t be following The Great British Bake Off’s move to Channel 4. But fear not, fans - five months on and the Somerset-born cook, whose final GBBO hurrah came in the form of a National Television Award for Best TV Judge earlier this year, is back with a new BBC Two TV series and accompanying cookbook, Mary Berry Everyday, celebrating items which have formed the cornerstone of her cooking over six decades. “I was thinking about, as the title suggests, the everyday,” explains Berry 81, whose culinary career started with training, aged 21, at Le Cordon Bleu school, France. “Everyday can be just with the family, it can mean having friends around, it can be a special occasion.” While the six-part series will follow Berry as she travels to Scotland to enjoy the best of their everyday larder; tries her hand at bee keeping; and teaches her own grand-daughter to milk a goat and make cheese, the tie-in tome will document her own kitchen creations (120, to be exact), alongside top tricks and tips.

Squash and Black Bean Chilli (Serves 6-8)

With everything from hearty and wholesome, to indulgent and easy crowd-pleasers on the menu, it’s a catalogue that’s sure to please. “All the recipes are tried out at home,” notes the star, who reveals she welcomes constructive criticism from her tight-knit family (Berry often cooks for her husband, Paul Hunnings, and their children and grandchildren). “The children might say, ‘Oh yuck’, or someone may say, ‘That takes too long to do’, and those don’t go in the book,” she confides. “But I make sure there aren’t too many of those! “It’s important not to have too many ingredients or pieces of equipment,” she adds. “I want to inspire people to cook, and I do think a book is a nice thing to have. I’m very lucky that people trust me and that they have a go.” With more than 70 titles under her belt, it’s safe to say people do trust Berry - and fans will be pleased to hear she isn’t hanging up her apron strings any time soon. “I’m not stepping back; I am doing different things,” Berry insists, resolute in her choice to keep busy.

“I’ve got a new series on country houses coming up, I’ll be doing a bit at Chelsea [Flower Show] I expect, and I’ll be doing a new series for 2018,” lists Berry. By Gemma Dunn, Press Association Try these three recipes from Berry’s new book...

Ingredients 1 small butternut squash (about 1kg), peeled, deseeded and cut into cubes 3tbsp olive oil 2 red onions, chopped 2 garlic cloves, crushed 1 fresh red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped 1tbsp ground cumin 1tbsp ground coriander 3 x 400g tins of chopped tomatoes 150ml white wine 1tbsp light muscovado sugar 2 x 400g tins of black beans, drained and rinsed Salt and freshly ground black pepper Sprigs of coriander, to serve

Method Preheat the oven to 220C/200C fan/Gas 7. Arrange the cubes of squash in a single layer a baking tray and drizzle over two tablespoons of the olive oil. Season with salt and pepper and toss together. Roast in the oven for 25-35 minutes, or until golden and tender, but still with a little bite. Heat the remaining oil in a large, wide, deep frying pan. Add the onions, garlic and chilli and fry over a high heat for two to three minutes. Sprinkle in the spices and fry for another minute. Add the tomatoes, wine and sugar, season with salt and pepper and bring to the boil, stirring. Cover with a lid, then reduce the heat and simmer for about 10 minutes. Give the mixture a stir, add the beans and the roasted cubes of squash, then cover again with the lid and simmer for a further 10 minutes.

Beef and Ale Stew with Horseradish Spiral Dumplings (Serves 8)

PA Photo/Georgia Glynn-Smith/BBC Books

Ingredients

Method

For the stew: 2-3tbsp oil 1kg braising beef, diced 250g small shallots, peeled and halved 2 carrots, peeled and thinly sliced 200g button mushrooms 50g plain flour 500ml ale 150ml beef stock 2-3tbsp onion marmalade or caramelised onion chutney 1-2tbsp Worcestershire sauce A dash of gravy browning (optional) 3 bay leaves Salt and freshly ground black pepper Buttered cabbage, to serve

You will need a 4L deep flameproof and ovenproof casserole dish with a lid. Preheat the oven to 160C/140C fan/Gas 3.

For the dumplings: 175g self-raising flour, plus extra for dusting 75g shredded suet (beef or vegetable) 3-4tbsp hot horseradish sauce 2tbsp chopped parsley Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Heat two tablespoons of the oil in the casserole dish, add the beef and brown all over on a high heat - you will need to do this in batches, removing the meat with a slotted spoon as it is cooked and setting aside. Pour in a little more oil if needed and add the shallots with the carrots and mushrooms. Stir-fry over a high heat for four to five minutes. Measure the flour into a bowl and gradually whisk in the ale, slowly at first to make a smooth paste before adding the rest of the ale. Return the meat to the casserole dish, then pour in the flour mixture and the stock. Stir over a high heat until the liquid is thickened and bubbling. Add the onion marmalade/chutney, Worcestershire sauce, gravy browning (if using) and bay leaves. Season with salt and pepper, then stir as you bring back up to the boil and allow to bubble for a couple of minutes. Cover with the lid and transfer to the oven to cook for two to two-and-a-half hours, or until the meat is tender.

To make the dumplings, measure the flour and suet into a bowl and season with salt and pepper. Gradually stir in 125-150ml of water to make a soft, sticky dough. Transfer to a floured work surface and gently knead until smooth. Sprinkle flour onto a sheet of baking paper, sit the dough on top and roll into a rectangle about 15 x 25cm. Spread the top with the horseradish sauce and scatter with the parsley. Roll up the dough into a Swiss roll, working from the long side and using the baking paper to help. Chill in the fridge for 45 minutes and slice into eight using a serrated knife. When the meat is tender, remove from the oven and increase the temperature to 220C/200C fan/Gas 7. Remove the lid from the casserole and arrange the dumplings, spiral side up and spaced apart, on top of the stew. Return to the oven and cook, uncovered, for about 25 minutes or until the dumplings are golden and puffed up. Remove the bay leaves and serve piping hot with buttered cabbage. 165


FOOD & DRINK

White Chocolate and Raspberry Cheesecake (Serves 6-8)

PA Photo/Georgia Glynn-Smith/BBC Books

Ingredients

Method

For the base: 150g digestive biscuits 60g butter, plus extra for greasing 1tbsp demerara sugar

You will need a 20cm round spring-form tin with deep sides, and a piping bag fitted with a plain nozzle (optional). Butter the base of the tin and line with a disc of baking paper.

For the topping: 200g white chocolate 1 x 250g tub of full-fat mascarpone cheese 300ml pouring double cream 1tsp vanilla extract 500g fresh raspberries 1tbsp icing sugar

To make the base, measure the biscuits into a resealable freezer bag and use a rolling pin, or the base of a saucepan, to crush into fine crumbs, but still with a bit of texture. Heat the butter in a small saucepan over a low heat until just melted. Add the crushed biscuits and sugar and stir until combined. Spoon into the base of the prepared tin and press with the back of a spoon until level. Chill in the fridge while you make the topping. Break the chocolate into a separate bowl, and sit it on top of a pan of simmering water. Stir until melted but not hot, then leave for five to 10 minutes, until cool but still liquid. Meanwhile, tip the mascarpone into a bowl, and mix with a spatula to loosen so it is soft. Stir in the cream and vanilla extract, stirring with the spatula until smooth.

166

To make a coulis for the top of the cheesecake, place half the raspberries into a small blender or food processor. Add the icing sugar and whizz until runny, then pour through a sieve to remove the seeds. Pour the melted chocolate into the bowl with the mascarpone mixture and stir to combine, taking care not to over-mix. Spoon half the white chocolate mixture on to the biscuit base in the tin. Use the handle of a teaspoon to make a few small holes in the white chocolate mixture, pushing right down to the top of the biscuit base. Pour or pipe enough of the coulis into the holes to fill them, setting aside the remaining coulis for decorating the top of the cheesecake. Spoon the remaining white chocolate mixture on top and smooth and level the top. Cover with cling film and chill in the fridge for a minimum of six hours, or ideally overnight. To serve, arrange the rest of the raspberries on top of the cheesecake and drizzle over the remaining coulis. Run a palette knife around the edges of the tin before removing the sides and base, and sit it on a serving plate.

HEALTH & BEAUTY

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.

HEALTH & FITNESS

QUIT TALKING START DOING, NO EXCUSE!

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

Well there is a lot of great things going on in the Fitter than Fit world at the moment. We now have our own App, which can be found in the App Store for iPhone or Android. The App holds a lot of very useful information including location, membership options, prices, our latest deals, a little about us and our contact details. There are also pictures, videos, links to social media and an option to buy a loyalty card for private one on one sessions with either myself or Michael, which are very popular. We will soon be adding tatsy recipes and workouts on a weekly basis, for you to follow. The App also has a shop, which soon we will be able to reveal some very exciting news about our brand ‘Wassmuffin’ and it very cleverly gives out quick alerts as a reminder to any of the classes you may want to join. You don’t have to be a member to receive any of these benefits, just go to the App Store and get the ‘Fitter Than Fit App’, absolutely free. Talking of a reminder to come to classes, I have recently discovered that my laid back attitude towards my clients isn’t necessarily what they actually want. I have often left people

alone if I haven’t seen them for a week or so, thinking that everyone is entitled to a little break. I don’t send out group texts or emails, there is no weekly weigh in. I was quite happy with this, knowing that clients always came back eventually as they enjoy the workouts and believe it or not, we actually have fun too (most days)!

3. The discipline of getting up early and exercising before work is really empowering and results in you having more energy throughout the day.

But it came to light, after 1 client had been off for nearly 2 weeks, that some people need an extra little push. I said how good it was to see her and I hadn’t wanted to disturb her time off. She told me the first week she had been unable to come due to exams, but the second week she’d just been lazy. She went on to tell me that actually she would have liked a gentle reminder/push from me to get involved again. So from now on a gentle push here and there it is.

5. Significant body shape changes.

Here is a gentle reminder of a few of the reasons Boot camp is so very good for you...

Give it a try, you’ve nothing to loose. Except maybe a few extra pounds! Contact us for any details, let your fitness journey begin with us!

1. A significant increase of fitness over a short space of time due to the type of exercise used. 2. A huge increases of confidence and feelings of well-being.

4. Early morning exercise has been proven to assist in weight loss and can help burn more calories over the course of the day.

6. Comradery, fun and friendship. You will have fun and motivate each other as well as make new friends. 7. Body fat loss and muscle toning is what it is all about. With the correct nutrition, boot camp will turn your body into a fat burning machine.
