LOCAL COMMUNITY SUPPORTS ‘VICTORIA DIY SOS’ APPEAL

The latest news stories in your area.

Some 9 years ago, through an amalgamation of two charities, ‘John Grooms’ and ‘The Shaftesbury Society’, Victoria Education Centre based in Poole, gratefully received a holiday chalet located at Rockley Park, Poole. Sadly, over the years, due to lack of funds it has deteriorated and students and their families were unable to make use of it.

CHARITY LADIES LUNCH WELCOMES COZMO JENKS

However, thanks to the combined efforts and generosity of local businesses, trades people, volunteers and multi -national companies the school was recently handed over the keys to the now completely refurbished chalet.

Diverse Abilities, the Dorset based disability charity that supports children and adults living with disabilities, is inviting local ladies to its summer lunch event at the Harbour Heights Hotel, Sandbanks, on Wednesday 14 June from 12-3pm.

Victoria Education Centre, a day & residential school, offer specialised care and therapy for disabled young people ranging from 3 to 25 years old. All have physical disabilities or complex medical/neurological conditions and many have additional needs including communication difficulties, learning difficulties and sensory impairments. Some sadly have life limiting conditions.

Guests will enjoy a threecourse meal before being bowled over by guest speaker Cozmo Jenks – one of Europe’s most highly acclaimed milliners. As designer and maker of bespoke hats for celebrities and the royal family, she will share her fascinating stories as well as giving tips for looking great in different outfits. Tickets for the June Ladies Lunch are priced at £45 per guest and can be purchased from www. diverseabilities.org.uk/ ladieslunch For further information about Diverse Abilities and what the event will be fundraising for, why not get in touch with the charity on 01202 718266 or visit www.diverseabilities. org.uk

Sue Hurd, a volunteer at the school and also a Director of a local property development company offered to take matters in hand and approached local businesses to help support the refurbishment project. “The response was amazing”, said Sue. “Myself and my business partner, Nathan Pike, made numerous phone calls, sent emails and approached suppliers and businesses to ask for their help with the project”.

Simon Brown Headteacher at Victoria Education Centre commented. “When Sue, offered her help we were over the moon. This has been a wonderful community spirited project and we really can’t thank everyone enough for their donations and their time. Giving up their weekends, evenings and early mornings to make this happen, this really has been a DIY SOS project!

She continued, “The support, generosity and kindness shown over the past few months of the refurbishment has been overwhelming from sole traders to multi national companies along with individual people who have approached me offering their help.”

“The holiday chalet is now a wonderful place where our students and their families can spend quality time together.”

Lord Shaftesbury, a regular supporter of the school, performed the honours of officially opening the chalet and guests were treated to a delicious BBQ supplied by the school as a small way of saying a huge Thank You to everyone who has given their time and support during the refurbishment of ‘Victoria Lodge’!

INTERNATIONALLY ACCLAIMED STAR DAME HARRIET WALTER ENTERTAINS AT THE HISTORIC REX CINEMA IN WAREHAM A packed and enlivened auditorium at The Rex Cinema in Wareham welcomed on stage highly admired actor of international stage and screen, Dame Harriet Walter, to talk about her latest film, A Sense of an Ending, adapted for screen from the Julian Barnes’ Man Booker Prize-winning novel, in which she co-stars with leading actors Jim Broadbent and Charlotte Rampling. Prior to the screening of A Sense of an Ending on Saturday 6th May, Dame Harriet and her husband, Guy Paul, took part in an informal discussion with BBC Radio Producer and freelance Presenter Hayley Redmond in the recently refurbished 126 seat Art Deco auditorium of Wareham’s historic independent cinema. Guy, who also appears in the film, described how he and Harriet were working on the play Death of a Salesman in the West End when the film’s Director Ritesh Batra came back stage to the dressing room and said “you know, I think you could play the boyfriend” to which Guy replied “that’s a role I am

familiar with!”. Harriet described how they both had been attracted by one of the scenes in the film where they appeared together as co-workers in full costume as Barristers but unfortunately this scene never made it to the final cut. A Rex Cinema Patron, Tamsin MuttonMcKnight, enthused “It was wonderful to hear from Dame Harriet Walter on her career, connection to Dorset and to get a real insight into her most recent film. We’re lucky to have such great events hosted by The Rex”. Dr David Evans, Chair of the Purbeck Film Charitable Trust and Rex Cinema commented “Dame Harriet is a kind supporter of The Rex Cinema and we are honoured that both she and her husband Guy were able to spare an evening for The Rex. I’d also like to thank Hayley Redmond for taking the time from her busy Radio schedule to prepare, and for conducting a captivating interview.”

The AA Inspectors visited nearly 900 Holiday Centres around the UK before deciding the Holiday Park came out tops. As well as being impressed by the facilities, the inspectors also cited the friendliness of staff and fantastic customer service as contributing to making Rockley Park stand out. Rockley Park’s General Manager, Geoffrey Smith said it was an honour to receive the award, adding: “Rockley Park is home to a great array of family friendly facilities, activities and entertainment of which we are extremely proud and this award is a real testament to the hard work and professionalism of our team. We are fortunate to also be situated on a beautiful part of the Dorset coastline, meaning guests can enjoy the Great British seaside at its best.” Rockley Park is located on Poole Harbour and Ham Common Nature reserve and boasts a wide range of facilities including indoor and outdoor pools, quality restaurants and a dedicated watersports centre run by Rockley Watersports. There’s also a climbing wall, a spa and a range of modern accommodation. The park celebrates its 60th anniversary in 2017 and recent years have seen continued investments in maintaining and building on the quality of the resort grounds and facilities. Rockley is also a strong supporter of the local community and many of its team are actively involved in local initiatives promoting tourism, employment and charities.

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, Vicky from Queens Park asks, “How reliable are online property value estimations? I recently put an offer in on a house but the online valuation estimated the house at £20,000 below what I have just offered!” Dear Vicky, We all like to use the property websites to see what our property may have increased in value since we bought it or what rental income we could expect to see if we began letting out our home. So I don’t blame you for having a little look to see how your offer measures up. The thing to remember is how these websites reach the estimate. The last sold price is taken, information readily available from the Land Registry, and then this is multiplied the average increase/decrease of other properties in the area. This then churns out an estimate of what the property could be worth based on minimal information. This is very different to the actual value of the house, which ultimately lies in what someone is willing to pay. Foxes Sales & Lettings do not use these estimates as a tool to value property; rather they favour local knowledge, experience in the market as well as looking at very recently sold like-for-like properties in the area or same road. Before they visit each property they spend time researching the property and compile bespoke printed data on sold prices and comparable properties, which they then take to discuss with the potential vendor and leave with them to look through in their own time. Ultimately, every property is as individual as the home-owners themselves and the value of which cannot be predicted by an online system. You say the online valuation is lower than what you have just offered, but the online valuation cannot tell you what renovations or decoration has been done since the last sold date. New windows, driveways, landscaping, extensions etc may have dramatically driven up the price of your soon to be home. You must have been happy with the property when you viewed and keen to put in an offer you felt was reasonable for the property before seeing the online estimate, I would keep this in mind and Good Luck in getting your offer accepted! 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!

Introducing “Orion and Calypso”; two superb new 4-bedroom homes

designed by award winning architect David James. Orion and Calypso are the ultimate combination of functionality and modernity. With wide-open spaces, simple, clean-cut lines and bespoke furnishings – these developments make the perfect choice for the growing modern family. We really are thrilled to welcome these two new additions

into our portfolio, further building on a reputation for a standard of finish that can only be described as ‘spectacular’. Orion and Calypso enjoy an elevated position looking out over Whitecliff Park and across the harbour to Brownsea Island. Their location is truly unbeatable, with Blue Flag beaches, top-restaurants and plenty of local amenities just moments away.

You work incredibly hard for the money that you earn, so that you can have a home that you’ve always dreamed of and we take that very seriously. As our ethos states, we make homes that are ‘worth the journey’; homes that you cannot wait to come home to. - Chris Richardson

INTERVIEW

WHIRELAND WEALTH MANAGEMENT History. Craftsmanship. Expertise. We met with Investment Manager (and Head of Office) ‘Craig Allison’, to find out more about WHIreland and their Canford Cliffs branch. Can you tell our readers a little about the company’s heritage? WHIreland is a long established financial services company which was founded by William Henry Ireland. Our roots are firmly based in Manchester and the first railway boom of the 1830s with William Henry joining the Railton family who were a prominent Manchester stockbroking family, at the age of fourteen. John Railton was one of the founding members and first Chairman of the Manchester Stock Exchange in 1836. The firm was family run until the 1970s before Jack Ireland retired. So you see, our company has a deep-rooted and extensive background within the financial sector. We established the Canford Cliffs branch in March 2012. We wanted to base ourselves in the heart of the community, which is why we chose this office, just off of the main high street, surrounded by locals and independent businesses. We are very fortunate to be based in the Village, a stone’s throw from the beautiful beaches. Who makes up the team at this local branch? The team is headed up by myself and I am supported by Investment Managers, Robert Matthews and Rob Lambert and consultant Martin Longland. Our combined experience totals an incredible 80 years’ worth of knowledge in wealth management. I mustn’t forget the great support we receive from our administration team, Jenny Andrews and Gwen Brown.

We manage wealth for a diverse range of clients including; individuals, trusts, pension funds, charities and corporates both as direct clients and indirectly through introductions from professional advisers. Although our clients are based across the UK and even internationally, we are based here to meet the investment needs of clients principally across the South West including Hampshire, Dorset, Devon, Wiltshire and Somerset. What are the benefits of using a wealth management company such as yourselves? There are three main reasons. First and foremost we offer a personalised service. Everyone has different needs and/or intentions when it comes to their wealth; no two are the same, which is why we tailor our service to the individual. The advice we give or the action we take, is without any allegiances or biases. We are truly impartial, which means that we fully focus our attention on delivering the most appropriate portfolio tailored to clients’ individual requirements. We are fully aware that for some people, investments can be a daunting prospect. With our significant experience and proven track record, we do everything we can to mitigate investment risk whilst growing our clients’ wealth. Global investment markets have experienced a great deal of turbulence over the past five years and by seeking professional investment advice, clients have the reassurance that the adviser they employ is properly regulated, qualified and has the necessary prerequisites in the disciplines the client is looking to address.

We firmly believe in creating longterm relationships based upon trust and we look to place our clients’ needs at the centre of everything we do. On your website you talk about an ‘Investment Philosophy’, could you tell us more about that? We pride ourselves on integrity and a bespoke approach to investments. In simple terms, we aim to protect and grow wealth over time and we have four proven beliefs that underpin our philosophy: asset allocation, analysis, an active approach and risk management. What investment options should our readers consider? Our aim is to achieve the optimum level of return suitable for clients’ objectives. Within each of our five core investment strategies we aim to minimise (and take advantage of) risk

We pride ourselves on integrity and a bespoke approach to investments. - Craig Allison

by using a combination of different asset classes. Historically, the returns on the three major asset classes (equities, bonds and cash) have not, over the medium to longer-term, moved up and down to the same extent or at the same time. We therefore tailor our portfolios and asset allocation to take advantage of this lack of correlation whilst also including a range of other uncorrelated assets to provide shortterm protection against loss of capital. However, there are investment solutions for all, whether clients have an existing £50,000 pension pot or a nest egg of £1,000,000. Typically investors with in excess of £250,000 will benefit from a discretionary managed investment portfolio with regular faceto-face meetings to discuss strategy and returns whilst keeping the portfolio tailored for their financial goals. I imagine there are those out there who remain closed off to the idea of investment, for fear of loss mostly, what would you say to those people to ease their worries? As I mentioned earlier, by seeking professional investment advice, clients have the reassurance that the adviser they employ is properly regulated and qualified. Managing investment risk and ensuring investment diversification is key when investing over the medium to longer-term, and with a wealth of experience on our side, the team and myself know how best to manage it. There is a great deal of formal structure within WHIreland to ensure that


INTERVIEW

portfolio solution is as invaluable as it ever has been as a one size fits all approach does not work. Our discretionary investment management service is particularly suited to clients wishing to delegate all the dayto-day investment decisions to us, thus removing the burden from having to react themselves to fast moving markets and the changing economy. Before we invest any of our clients’ wealth, we take time to thoroughly discuss their investment goals so that we fully understand their financial aspirations and make recommendations on how best to achieve those goals. We will then implement an agreed investment strategy and regularly report directly

to them through meetings, either face-to-face at our office or if they prefer at their home and clients also receive half yearly reports. Clients can also view their portfolio online at any time, via our secure online access. The world is definitely growing with an unwieldy amount of data and rapidly changing circumstances which require frequent analysis. For many investors this level of analysis is either impractical or just simply overwhelming and the need for expert advice is now more relevant than ever to ensure that investments are constantly aligned with a client’s needs. t. 01202 974111 e. pooleoffice@whirelandwm.com w. www.whirelandwm.com

the investment decisions we make are reached with a quorum. Our investment process is derived from four main investment committees: Asset Allocation, Stock Selection, Fund Selection and Portfolio Construction. Each of these committees comprises of a number of our highly experienced investment managers from across our Group both in the UK and internationally in the Isle of Man and research analysts, who meet on a regular basis. WHIreland is also regulated in the UK by the FCA and clients also have the reassurance that were a firm to be unable to meet its liabilities, clients may be entitled to redress from the UK’s Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS). In this day of fast moving markets and changing economy what would your advice be to relive the stress when it comes to investment decisions? Investors looking to seek wealth management advice from experts traditionally turn to independent financial advisers (IFAs), private bankers or investment managers for guidance on how to achieve their desired returns for a tolerable level of risk. The world is complicated and so are people’s lives, and making sense of currencies, countries, asset classes and where to place funds can be a daunting task. Our role is to analyse and manage the potential return and risks of all opportunities, thereby planning for the future. This [analysis] is a daily task whether managing funds for individuals, institutions, pension assets or governments. The skill of matching the tolerance of a client with a tailored

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

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO US! We’re celebrating 11 wonderful years here at Move on Sales and Lettings! It’s hard to believe that we’ve been successfully letting, selling & managing homes all over Bournemouth and Poole for 11

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.

years. Time certainly flies when you’re having fun! It feels like it was only yesterday that we embarked on this amazing journey. I feel so incredibly proud of our journey and our many achievements to date. My management team have been by my side since day one, with Christine heading up our Accounts Department and Nicky looking after Property Management. It might sounds cliché but we’re like a big family. We work incredibly hard to ensure we provide the very best service to our clients. Word of mouth is a huge source of referrals for us. Our clients love what we do, and therefore they recommend other landlords and vendors to utilise our expertise by instructing us to let or sell their properties. We’re at ease dealing with clients from all backgrounds, securing lets and managing high specification properties up to £11,000PCM. Our properties range from executive professional house shares, apartments to bespoke sea front homes with spectacular views. So what’s my highlight been…? Well I have to say there’s a top three. Winning numerous awards, my column here in House &my radio show on Hope FM. Our business is based on two key points: communication and our proactive approach to everything we do. Communication is definitely the key to any successful relationship, and this is at the heart of our business. To celebrate we’re giving one lucky winner the opportunity to find

ATTENTION LANDLORDS: Residential Lettings Finance & Legislation Update Mortgage Tax Relief: From April 2017 Landlords will no longer be able to deduct all of their finance costs from the rental income. The mortgage tax relief for residential landlords will be restricted to the basic rate of Income Tax. Did You Know? This will be phased in over the next 4 years and be fully in place by 6th April 2020?

Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarm (England) Regulations: Regulations now require one smoke alarm installed on each storey and a carbon monoxide alarm in every room with a solid fuel burning appliance. Did You Know? The law also states that Landlords are responsible for checking the alarms on the day any new tenancy commences.

Energy Performance Certificates (EPC): An EPC is required for properties when constructed, sold or let. EPC’s expire after 10 years, your EPC may be due for renewal. Did You Know? From April 2018 residential Landlords must ensure their property has a minimum Energy Efficiency rating of an E grade.

Immigration Act 2016: Right to Rent Checks must be carried out on all prospective adult occupiers of rental properties and compliance must be checked throughout the tenancy. Did You Know? Non-compliance is now a criminal offence that can lead to 5 year’s imprisonment and an unlimited fine.

“PRIMOVE SAVED MY LIFE” These are the words of 52-year-old Sandra, a Bournemouth-based landlord; “I was on the verge of suicide until the newest and fairest lettings agent to hit Winton stepped in. After a long road of struggling to deal with mounting issues at my property, one that had my mental health on the rocks, I finally had someone to turn to. I felt like I didn’t have any other options, until Primove rescued me from a perilous situation”. After trying to take the brave and risky route of managing her own property, without the backing of a lettings agent, she eventually sought help from three of the area’s biggest agencies. Despite her cries for help she was turned away, unable to pay the extortionately unfair, high-fees quoted to her. “When I started this venture, I wasn’t aware of the lengths I would have to go, the costs involved and the hours wasted chasing unpaid rent. Not to mention the expenses needed for damages inflicted by tenants with shallow pockets. I thought going at it alone was my best option, but I was wrong! As a landlord, I am responsible for the upkeep of my property, as a tenant was for upholding their side of the agreement. Naively I thought letting agents weren’t the way to go, given their bad reputation. “My life had reached an all-time low. In spite of the rumors I took it upon myself to seek assistance from a series of lettings agencies in the area. None would help me. I was a woman in desperate need of help, my life caving in around me and I felt like I had been treated as an inconvenience. To me, they should hang their heads in shame. I felt as though lettings agents saw landlords on their books as a cow to be milked, but only if they could pay. Their reputation as moneymaking machines without a shred of humanity was, in my eyes, not without merit.” Unless she was prepared to pay an extortionate fee upfront – a fee that she did not have – no one would listen, which is where we came in… “They were empathetic to me from the start. I was not just another landlord on their books; I was an individual with a personal story. From the moment I walked through the door, I felt I mattered to them. It would not be an over-exaggeration to say that Primove saved me. They have restored my trust in humanity and if other lettings agents used the same model as Primove, then faith could be restored to their profession. Primove are charging landlords like me a fair honest fee and no unfair commissions. They helped and supported me for FREE, no additional costs. It’s the little touches that I could only dream of from other lettings agents. Primove helped me remove the tenants and are now helping me recover my rent arrears while fully managing my 2-bedroom property for £30 a month. “Thank you Moe, Martyn, Dan and Sue. Sincerely Sandra” Primove was set-up by landlords, for landlords; so if you are struggling with your rental property and/or you want PRIMOVE to manage your property, then please pop into our office for a friendly chat.

NATURE’S PERFECT PALETTE Sometimes nature knows best, but who’d have thought it also holds the answers to home decorating? Looking to the skies and the changing colours of the landscape is the newest (and highly welcome) alternative to struggling with perplexing paint charts, and it’s the method used by one of the world’s leading stylists. Hans Blomquist, renowned for his work as an art director with major home brands, including Ikea, Harrods, Marks & Spencer, John Lewis and Zara Home, reveals that looking up to the skies - whether sunny blue, stormy or rain-lashed horizons - as well as noticing the seasons, is his perfect inspiration for winning interiors. “It’s easy to take colour for granted. We forget to appreciate the amazing, dazzling world that surrounds us, full of a million different shades that have the power to lift our spirits or soothe our mood,” says Blomquist, whose beautifully illustrated book, In The Mood For Colour: Perfect Palettes For Creative Interiors, is a guide to seeing colour in a completely different light.

“Nature is my starting point for any project. For my job, I’m lucky enough to travel the world and colour surprises me wherever I go - I’m often transfixed by the different colours and lights I’ve experienced in different parts of the globe. Most of my inspiration comes from the colours of the natural world. There is beauty to be found nearly everywhere you go and nature always inspires me with its wonderful colour combinations.”

the variety of colours that surround you. You’ll end up with a collection of pictures which display a wide range of different colours and textures that will be a rich source of inspiration and help you refine your taste.”

The perfect palette is out there just waiting to be seen, he says, and the easiest way of finding out what appeals is to take photos on your phone, of whatever catches your eye, over a period of time. “Next time you leave your house, whether you’re passing through familiar landscapes or visiting a different country, look around and marvel at

Blue Skies & Blue Jeans Blue’s a colour that works especially well when you layer up different shades to create a tone-on-tone effect, and Blomquist promises it will result in a harmonious interior with a sense of depth and calm. “I consider myself a ‘blue’ person. Painting walls a deep blue will give you a sense of summer all year round, and you can add warmth with natural objects and colours,” he enthuses. “Denim blue, greyish blue, duck-egg blue, shades of blue that veer towards green, and anything in between are all favourites of mine.

“There’s nothing more comfortable to wear than denim, and it’s just as comfortable to live in a moody blue interior. Shades of denim can range from the deepest indigo to the palest, soft grey-blue.” DIP INTO BLUES: Anything goes with deep moody blues - light or dark, muted tones or bright clear, spring-like shades. In an interior, dark blue works as a neutral and looks brilliant either covering walls or used as a grounding accent in the form of textiles and decorative objects. Try layering different shades of blue from darkest navy to washed-out cornflower.

Washed, Bleached & Weathered Natural colour schemes have a depth and softness to them, says Blomquist, and feel so unmanufactured and true in their shades that they’ll always bring a sense of integrity to your home and make it feel warm, inviting and relaxed. “I’m always collecting pieces of wood from the beach and the forest. I use some to light the fire, but the sculptural pieces usually end up on display and inspire me in my choice of colours,” he explains. “There’s nothing like the faded colours of smooth driftwood, washed vintage French linen, or antique grey painted furniture. I love everything about these soft, warm tones. “I like to mix vintage and new, textural wood playing off shiny porcelain, and if you feel the whole is too bland, introduce some greenery - a single leaf or a pot plant can be the last extra touch needed.” DIP INTO PALE SHADES: If you have plain white walls, add layers of texture and introduce different shades of soft white to make a room more inviting. Layer textiles in different weaves or colours, hang a panel of vintage fabric as a work of art. A collection of vintage mirrors will reflect and accentuate any light in the room and is particularly effective in making a small space appear larger.

Stormy Days Towards the end of summer vivid hues begin to fade and moodier colours appear along with dark stormy days and autumnal earthy colours; this is a palette Blomquist recommends for atmospheric rooms.

“Even though I don’t like rainy days, I love it when dark, thundery rain clouds roll in because their deep tones are astoundingly beautiful, and every other hue sits so well against them, especially the bright green of spring leaves,” he says.

“While you may be reluctant to repaint a room pitch black, I’m sure you would be pleasantly surprised if you did, as it’s such a chic, comfortable colour to live with. I wish I had more dark colours in my home. “A dark backdrop can have such an impact and create a sense of drama, yet at the same time give a very calm and cocooning feeling. It also makes any other colour stand out beautifully, whether it’s a single flower, a branch of spring blossoms, or a piece of furniture.” DIP INTO GREYS AND BLACKS: If painting a whole room seems too much, start with one wall or ceiling. Create a tonal wall by painting one solid colour of matt paint in a dark colour and then, using a sponge, apply a wash of diluted lighter paint over it. Repeat until you get the desired effect. Choose from deepest indigo, inky black, thunder grey and earthy brown shades. Down Pipe, Railings and Pitch Black, Farrow & Ball (£43.50 for 2.5L; www. farrow-ball.com) are all worth a try.

RELAX OUTDOORS At Reformed Plastics all of our products are made from 100% recycled plastic. We manufacture products ourselves and then sell direct to the Domestic and Commercial sector. Due to ever increasing importance to recycle & protect the environment, our products are made from 100% recycled plastic. The plastic used is recycled in the UK and is the perfect alternative to wood. Our aims are to help rebuild the environment by utilizing a commodity, which people would otherwise just throw away, and so turn what to some would be rubbish into a valuable product for everybody. Our products have many practical & very useful properties & has an infinite range of different uses, some of which being are as decking, fencing, outdoor furniture,

planters,

boardwalks,

landscaping,

bollards, signage & construction etc. The list of possibilities is endless and the long-term advantages it has over traditional materials are staggering! It’s a great investment, as it never needs to be replaced due to its high strength and durability, therefore it quickly pays for itself in the long run. In short, it’s worry free! We recycle plastic and then manufacture goods from it, we produce recycled plastic furniture for use in gardens and patios and we retail recycled plastic products such as recycled plastic fencing and recycled plastic decking. The concept of Reformed Plastics was born over 15 years ago from the curiosity of its founder. Being an engineer by profession, and having had his own UPVC Windows business, and also being the practical and inquisitive person that he is, one day he decided to find out what was really happening to the waste that people were so freely throwing away. His research and interest lead him to focus on plastics, how it can be recycled and what it could be reused for. He discovered that the USA & a few European countries had been recycling and remanufacturing waste plastics into alternative timber products for many years, instead of throwing it all into landfill! Over time, slowly but surely he developed a few basic products in the form of planks and posts and very soon he began to receive interest from people wanting to know more about this revolutionary product that is both an environmentally friendly alternative to normal timber and sustainable which means it will save them a lot of money in the long term! From then on, the rest as they 138

say is history.

WHAT CAN THE PLASTIC BE USED FOR? The manufactured plastic has many practical and very useful properties. The main base of our products are in the form of planks and posts which can be used on their own for garden fences, both low for front gardens and high for side and back fences for instance, along road sides and around fields and paddocks just to name a few. It is also possible to produce a number of other products out of our plastic, such as picnic tables. These would vary in size, suitable for adults and children. Park benches, outdoor tables, square or rectangular plant boxes, decking and seating... the list is endless.

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.

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.

HOW STRONG IS IT? It is extremely solid and strong being able to withstand stress levels of well over 10 tons. It is heavy, durable, virtually indestructible and will not need to be replaced. In short, it is worry free.

IS THERE A COLOUR CHOICE? Yes. Our main colours are black and brown. However, we can produce products to a choice of colours! This removes the need for painting & staining. So whatever colour is required... just ask!

Summer’s just around the corner and it’s time to hit the great outdoors and turn your patio into a chic space for lounging and al fresco meals.

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

HONDA CIVIC TYPE R Honda UK has announced pricing for the next generation Civic Type R. On sale in July, the entry level model will cost £30,995 and the GT version will cost £32,995. GT drivers will benefit from blind spot information including cross traffic monitor, dual zone climate control, auto dimming rear view mirror, Honda CONNECT with Garmin Navigation, wireless charging, high power audio, and LED front fog lights. The 2.0-litre VTEC TURBO of the previous generation Civic Type R has been optimised and refined to produce 315 hp while the sixspeed manual transmission is improved by a rev match control system.

ROAD TEST: INFINITI Q60 PREMIUM TECH Infiniti is the stand-alone luxury brand of Nissan, pitched against premium models from BMW, Mercedes, Audi and Lexus, writes NICK FLETCHER. The latest Infiniti is the Q60, a four-seat two-door coupe with stand-out styling that turns heads and which delivers fast refined performance. It is also generously equipped – the kit list on my test model runs to 82 individual features! Q60 prices start at £33,990 with flagship versions up to £46,690. My test model was a mid-range Premium Tech version with a 2.0 litre petrol engine and 7-speed auto gearbox, costing £37,690. With 208 hp on tap, the 0-60 mph time is just 7.6 seconds and top speed 146 mph. Progress is smooth and responsive, with a suitably sporty but not over-intrusive note from the twin exhausts. The auto box is seamless, the steering precise and intuitive, the ride quality understandably on the firm side but overall still very comfortable. I found the Q60 a beautiful, effortless drive. It delivers on other fronts too. The visual styling is elegant, with a very distinctive look, and the potent front-end design makes German rivals appear rather muted. In the cabin the good impression continues with use of quality trim materals including semi-aniline leather seats and soft-touch plastics. The dashboard is well laid out, with

twin dials behind the steering wheel and twin screens on the centre console, one for infotainment and sat-nav, the other for driver-information and connectivity features. Powered adjustable seats and steering wheel make it easy to get a comfortable driving postion, and the front seats are very supportive. Access to the rear is tight but once inside, the back seats are surprisingly spacious and with plenty of legroom, though tall pasengers will find headroom slightly compromised. The boot is a large boxy shape, offering 352 litres of space and the rear seat folds down to accommodate longer items. Highlights from the 82-item equipment list include 19inch alloys with run-flat tyres, BOSE audio system, intelligent cruise control, forward collison warning and emergency braking, blind-spot intervention system and all-round monitor with moving object detection and parking guidance. You also get LED lights, front and rear sensors, dark maplewood interior trim and memory-linked drivers seat, steering wheel and door mirrors. The Q60 is more exclusive than most rivals, generously equipped, with great driving dynamics and eye-catching visual cachet. It is a formidable contender in this niche luxury performance sector.

NEW PEUGEOT 308

144

Available from September, the new Peugeot 308 which features sharpened styling and latest powertrains and touchscreen connectivity. It comes in hatch, estate and GTi variants. No prices have yet been announced. All models have a new grille and LED daytime running lights and inside Peugeot’s i-Cockpit interior has a touchscreen offering connected 3D satnav and new graphics. New powertrains include a 1.5 BlueHDi 130 Stop&Start engine, and a new eight-speed automatic transmission coupled with the BlueHDi 180 Stop&Start engine. Extended driver assistance runs to eight latest-generation systems, including Active Safety Brake and Active Lane Departure Warning and adaptive cruise control, and the new 308 uses Visiopark 1 with 180° rear camera and the Park Assist function, which measures the parking space available and automatically steers the car in and out.


MOTORING

ALL-NEW SUV FROM MG ROAD TEST: JEEP RENEGADE The Jeep brand dates back more than 70 years, and is widely known as ‘the American legend’. While these days Jeep is owned by the Fiat Group, the marque still retains its tough formidable image, writes NICK FLETCHER. The Cherokee may be the best-known name in the Jeep lineup, but the smaller Renegade, a compact crossover model, is making its mark, appealing to those who want a cool street image yet when necessary, genuine four wheel drive capability. Many models in the SUV/Crossover sector have either two wheel drive or a rather limited 4WD system which cannot cope with difficult terrain. All Jeep 4x4 models can calibrate the differential to maximise grip and control in snow, mud or on rough rocky terrain. But though the Renegade is a rough-stuff mud-plugger, its distinctive visual cachet means you can still park outside a trendy cafe and make a style statement. Renegade prices start at £18,250, with petrol and diesel options and 2WD or 4WD. Many buyers opt for upper range versions laden with extra kit, and Limited models start at £24,265. My test model was a Limited in 4WD form with auto transmission and with the 138 hp 2.0 litre diesel engine, and that combination costs £29,050.

For that you get a comprehensive spec which includes touchscreen infotainment centre, DAB radio, Bluetooth and sat-nav, plus 18-inch wheels, heated leather seats, front and rear parking sensors and plenty of safety features including lane departure and front-collision warnings. The Renegade’s styling is unmistakable – a plus-point in a sector which is quite image-conscious, and while it loves being off road, it is pleasant to drive on the tarmac, at least if the surface is smooth. The firm suspension does jolt in potholes but otherwise, the ride quality in town driving is quite acceptable. The 2.0 litre diesel engine pulls well, giving a nippy 0-60 mph time of 9.9 seconds and top speed of 113 mph. Fuel economy is 48.7 mpg combined. The 9-speed auto gearbox is excellent, giving smooth and fluid shifts. The cabin has a stand-out radically-styled dashboard, unlike anything else in the class. There is a logical layout of instruments and switchgear and the touchscreen is quick to respond. There is space for four adults in comfort, or five if everyone’s friendly! Boot space is adequate at 351 litres and explands to a useful 1,297 litres if the rear seats are folded.

MG has unveiled its all-new compact SUV – the MG XS – which is scheduled to makes its showroom debut this Autumn. It will be available with two engine options and with automatic or manual transmission. Pricing has not yet been announed but is described by MG as being “highly competitive”. Matthew Cheyne, Head of Sales and Marketing at MG Motor UK, said: “The MG XS will be a real gamechanger in the compact SUV marketplace. The meaning behind the name is simple – S stands for SUV, X means extra. Featuring state-of-theart driver technology and innovative design, the new model builds on our growing reputation for capability, performance and quality, positioned at a highlyaffordable price”.

NEW BMW 4 SERIES The BMW 4 Series now has refreshed styling, upgraded cabin and new interior features. Prices start ar £32,580. Since its 2013 debut, BMW has delivered nearly 400,000 units of the 4 Series to customers all over the world. The biggest single market, racking up approximately a third of all BMW 4 Series sales, is the USA, followed by Great Britain and Germany. The latest versions have styling cues borrowed from the BMW Concept 4 Series Coupé and other features include a large air intake with eye-catching bars and LED headlights and rear lights. All three models now have a lower centre of gravity courtesy of a wider track, revised suspension and improved traction control capabilities. Building on the existing sporty design and appearance of the BMW 4 Series, the Coupé and Convertible models now start with the Sport model, with the M Sport model available for all engines or as standard on the 430i, 430d/430d xDrive, 435d xDrive and 440i models.

REVIEWED

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

A SPOT OF LUNCH AT THE UPPER DECK Located in the boundaries of the Christchurch Harbour Hotel is the Upper Deck restaurant. Known to locals as THE place for harbour side dining, I had to investigate the rumours for myself. So, one blissfully sunny afternoon, with my bestie/ co-worker Vicky in tow, we headed out on a journey of food discovery. We arrived at the restaurant reception – through the hotel foyer to the back of the main building – where we were welcomed and then shown to our seats. I took time to scan the room as we passed through to the outside seating area. It was lovely; bright, airy with subtle accents of nautical blue. Every table was adorned with precisely positioned crockery, crisp white napkins and complimentary glassware. Having noticed the attention to detail in our surroundings, our anticipation for the food grew, but my thoughts for the spectacular interior were muted as soon as we stepped out onto the exterior deck…

146

What a view. The deck is raised a storey above their patio come garden area that overlooks the picturesque Christchurch Harbour. Surrounded by an all glass wind-breaker, you have all the benefits of the warm weather without restricting the magnificent scenery. With the sun growing stronger

we decided hydration was in order and what better libation for a sunny day, than an invigorating glass of wine – sip, sip, aaaaaah. Wine in hand and sun-soaking positions assumed, we decide we ought to make our food choices. We were informed that we were reading their new spring/summer menu, filled with seasonal dishes that utilise the best produce for this time of year. To start we both opted for salads, Vicky a classic “Greek Salad” and I the “Mackerel and Goats Cheese”. I loaded my fork with tiny piece of every ingredient; pungent goats cheese, fresh salty mackerel, sweet beetroot and peppery rocket. I closed my eyes and savoured the contrasting and complimentary flavours. It was a delectable start to the meal. I looked over to Vicky who was sporting the same satisfied expression, a prolonged mmmmm as her only comment, which I took as good news. We allowed our first course to settle as we enjoyed the view once again. The sun had really begun to beat down now. The birds fluttered past and a warm seaside breeze blew gently across the deck. Shortly after our spell of daydreaming, the mains arrived. I had opted for a little taste of the med,

with the “Crab and Chilli Spaghetti”. I twirled the long strings of pasta, absorbing it in the sauce as I spindled a mouth-sized parcel. Though simple, this was a perfect lunchtime treat. The sauce was rich, but not too heavy. The ingredients were fresh and the pasta was cooked perfectly. Vicky’s “Spring Mac & Cheese” was apparently equally as delightful, “an interesting take on a classic” she remarked. With thick, creamy layers of béchamel and cheese, infused with an array of spring vegetables it was an enjoyable naughty versus nice food composite. We left stuffed, filled with tasty food. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience at the Upper Deck restaurant. It was the perfect relaxing lunch spot, ideal for couples, groups of friends/family or equally ideal for business. With the weather warming up and that view getting better and better, I suggest booking in advance. By Charlotte Williams t. 01202 400954 a.

NOT JUST WILLIAM William Sitwell is adamant: “British food culture is the greatest food culture in the world.” The writer, TV presenter and food critic puts it down to the fact even the most provincial UK high street still overflows with eating options, from Chinese and Thai, to French, Italian and Indian. “We welcome food culture with open arms, we absorb it into our daily lives. What we do - which probably annoys people from overseas - is that we actually end up doing their food better than they do.” As a MasterChef judge and editor of Waitrose Kitchen magazine, he’s well placed to adjudicate. And who better to pull together The Really Quite Good British Cookbook, a new collection of recipes from “about 100 of our finest chefs,

cooks, bakers and food heroes”. It features established talents (Nigella, Ottolenghi, Stein) and rising stars (Gill Meller, Rosie Birkett), as well as home cooks, restaurateurs, celebrities and innovative producers. Sitwell’s job was to “corral” the lot of them - via phone, email, Twitter and accosting them at parties - and get them to hand over recipes for dishes they make their loved ones. You won’t find a recipe from Sitwell himself in it, however - he thought the idea “a bit self-regarding” - though he is a keen cook. By Ella Walker, Press Association Inspired to reacquaint yourself with proper British cooking? Try one of these three recipes...

Nettles On Toast With Pollack, Wild Garlic & Poached Egg By Gill Meller (Serves 2)

William Sitwell (Photo credit: PA Photo/Lizzie Mayson)

Ingredients 250g fresh young nettle tops (foraged from the garden or local park) 25g butter 2tbsp olive oil 2x150g pollack fillet steaks 1 small bunch wild garlic shredded (foraged from the garden, local park, hedgerows and roadside - or use 1 clove, crushed) 2 eggs 2 slices sourdough or good-quality country bread, toasted Salt and pepper

Method Wash the nettles in plenty of fresh water. Remove any tougher lower stalks. Drop the nettles into a saucepan of salted, boiling water and simmer for two to three minutes, until tender, then drain really well. Return the nettles to the pan, add half the butter and one tablespoon of the olive oil. Season well with salt and pepper, stir and then cover and keep warm. Set a large, non-stick frying pan over a medium to high heat. Season the fish all over with salt and pepper. Heat the remaining butter and oil in the pan and when hot, add the fish, skin-side down. Cook for three to five minutes, depending on its thickness, then turn the fillets over and fry for one to two minutes until the flakes separate when pressed lightly with a fork; this indicates the fish is cooked. Add the garlic to the pan. Spoon it through the buttery fish juices; cover and keep warm while you cook the eggs. Bring a medium-sized, high-sided saucepan of water to the boil. Twirl a spoon in the water to make a mini whirlpool. Crack the eggs in, turn the heat down to minimum and cook for threefour minutes. Remove the eggs carefully with a slotted spoon. Keep warm. Remember: the fresher the eggs - the better they poach.

Overnight Roast Pork Belly With Pears & Thyme By Hardeep Singh Kohli (Serves 6-8)

PA Photo/Lizzie Mayson

Ingredients

Method

1 pork belly (2 1/2-3kg), bone and skin removed 3tbsp rapeseed oil 2tbsp sea salt 2 leeks, halved lengthways 2 carrots, halved lengthways 4 sticks celery, halved lengthways 8 peppercorns 12 bunches of thyme, of which 4 should be stripped of leaves 1 pint perry (or pear cider) 5 firm pears (4 halved and cored, 1 finely diced)

Set the oven to the highest setting. Pop the kettle on. On buying your belly, have your butcher remove it from the bone. Keep the bone and bring it home. Also, have them remove the skin, having first scored it in a criss-cross fashion. Place the skin in the sink and pour boiling water over it. Carefully dry the skin, thoroughly. Rub a tablespoon of oil and then the sea salt into the scored flesh. Place the skin in an oiled roasting tin and put in the oven. It should take only 30 minutes for the skin to become crackling. Remove the crackling and allow to cool. Turn the oven down to 120C. Lay the leeks, carrots and celery in the bottom of a roasting tin with the peppercorns. On top, lay the rib bones, eight sprigs of thyme and then drizzle a

tablespoon of oil over. Tuck the veg in under the ribs. Lay the pork belly on top, oil and drizzle the rest of the oil, and scatter the remaining salt over. Pour 350ml of the perry into the roasting tin. Cover in tinfoil and pop into the oven for anything between nine and 11 hours. 90 minutes before the end of cooking, add the halved pears. Roast uncovered for the final hour and a half. Remove the pork from the oven. Carefully lift the pork and the pears out and keep warm. Discard the cooked veg. Add the remaining perry, deglaze the tin and reduce the liquor by half. Immediately before serving, add the remaining thyme leaves and finely diced pear. 149

Blackcurrant & Chocolate Layer By Nikki Duffy

VISJEUNE (Serves 4)

Giving people their confidence back With the media pumping out flawless beauty’s around the clock, it’s no wonder that the world we live in is so incredibly image conscious. Confidence, especially self-confidence, is fleeting and it’s heartbreaking, but practitioner (and Visjeune clinic owner) ‘Lisa Niemier’ wants to change all that.

The Women Who Started It All With 8 years experience in the aesthetics business, Lisa is truly a master of her craft. Lisa began her career in the industry at the beginning of the ‘aesthetic hype’. Having noticed it’s growing popularity, Lisa threw herself at the opportunity and spent time progressing her training to a high standard.

If there’s one thing I gleaned from our interview it’s that this is a women who really cares about her work, expressed most poignantly when Lisa explained; “Every time I inject, I’m always cautions”. What a wonderful sentiment. Even having performed countless injectable procedures, she still takes great care and consideration when someone puts their most precious features (their face) into her trustworthy hands. In addition to owning her own salon, Lisa is on the board of governing body ‘BACN’ (British Association of Cosmetic Nurses), where she keeps up with the latest rules and regulations for the industry.

Ingredients

Method

For the blackcurrant layer: 250g blackcurrants A squeeze of lemon juice Up to 100g caster sugar 50ml water

Put the blackcurrants in a saucepan with 50ml water. Bring to a simmer and cook for a few minutes, stirring once or twice, until the fruit has broken down and you have a chunky, juicy mix. Push this through a sieve to remove the currant skins and seeds. Add the lemon juice to the warm puree, then sweeten it by stirring in caster sugar. Start by adding 50g, then stir in more until the puree is sweet but still tastes fruity and fresh. Leave to cool and then chill.

For the chocolate layer: 25g cocoa powder 50g caster sugar 100ml water For the cream/yoghurt layer: 200ml double cream 200ml plain full-fat yoghurt 2tbsp caster sugar To finish: 50g skinned hazelnuts 1 tbsp Demerara sugar

To make the chocolate layer, put the cocoa and sugar in a small pan with the water. Bring to the boil, whisking constantly, then let the mixture simmer for about one minute - again, stirring often - so it thickens. Leave to cool and then chill. When you’re ready to assemble the puds, put the cream, yoghurt and caster sugar in a mixing bowl

Body Confidence So often the reason that people want to get something done is due to a lack of self-confidence. As our interview went on Lisa’s motives became more and more clear. Whilst aesthetics is her bread and butter, Lisa is so much more to her clients; she is a listening ear and a great advisor to those who are seeking treatment for their problem areas. “I once had a lady come to me seeking anti-wrinkle injectables. She had gone through some real hardships in life and her self-confidence was so low. Having examined her areas of concern, it was clear that she didn’t need it. She ended up having a simple manicure with our beautician and sheCharlie left feeling a million dollars.

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.
