NEWS NATION’S LEADING AWARD WINNING SK:N CLINIC HAS ARRIVED IN BOURNEMOUTH The latest news stories in your area.

GREAT DORSET BAKE SALE COOKS UP A STORM Bake sales took place across Dorset last month in aid of Diverse Abilities, Dorset’s disability charity, raising over £1,600, which will further support children and adults living with physical and learning disabilities, and their families.

sk:n the UKs leading award winning aesthetic group has chosen Bournemouth, famous for its award-winning beaches, premier division football club, endless country side, water sports, beautiful gardens and a thriving tourism, manufacturing and digital economy as the centre for its 45th clinic. The brand new sk:n clinic is situated in the same location as Even lines and the building has seen major refurbishment and has been completely ‘rejuvenated,’ as well as receiving major investment with new equipment, building restructuring and renovations, as well as staff training. There has also been the appointment of Faye Jones as clinic manager and Sophie Quick as senior practitioner. The multi award winning, Doctor Linda Eve, the face of Even lines will continue as the aesthetic doctor and will remain as the key figurehead at the Bournemouth sk:n clinic.

There are an array of treatments available such as acne treatments, laser hair removal as well as rejuvenation treatments such as anti-ageing injections, dermal fillers, lip fillers, microdermabrasion, microneedling and skin peels. In addition to treatments, there is a range of clinically proven skincare products. Doctor Linda Eve said “sk:n has an excellent reputation, with highly trained staff, a recognised brand, with the very latest technologies and equipment available to customers. They are passionate about promoting improved skin health and wellness and Bournemouth is the perfect location to do this. I am thrilled to work with sk:n and look forward to welcoming you all through the doors of the clinic and introduce you to our treatments, products and team.” www.sknclinics.co.uk

People within the community, families we support, local business including local cafes and coffee shops, community groups took part and baked delicious treats to raise some dough! This year we also had local churches participate, local businesses such as Tricuro, Jordans & Ryvita, and a number of coffee shops showed their support, including the Courtyard Tearooms and Butterfingers Sandwich Bar. Over the last six years, the initiative has raised over £12,000 for the Dorset disability charity.

You may also wish to use an international mover that has achieved the highest level of service within the industry by attaining FIDI Accredited International Mover status (FAIM). This is the only

A-One Advice Clinic PR advice from Jackie Phillipson, Founder of ROUTEpr What is Public Relations (PR)? Public Relations is a key part of business strategy and management, focused on the relationship between the company and the people out there who are connected to that company, with the purpose of making good things happen to all. It’s about helping each client share their story, generate attention and ultimately create a strong public image. PR is about creating a relationship between your business and the public. How can PR work for my business? As a PR company, it is our role to increase the effectiveness of your marketing. We are here to help you raise your profile with new creativity and ideas. When a customer comes to us, they want professional support – with a real oomph! A PR plan can enable a business to establish its brand identity in a practical, cost-efficient manner and help market your business in a variety of different ways. Examples of PR strategies? With a carefully planned PR campaign, you will increase your brand awareness from inside your company to the whole world and with a variety of different strategies. At ROUTEpr our campaigns can be anything from developing media relations and communication strategies to creating eye catching content or organising an event. Our services are here to meet the client’s needs and goals. What is the difference between PR and Advertising? Advertising is a paid for announcement through the media whether its online, print, TV or radio. PR is earned media - the editors of the media have shown an interest in your story and published it themselves in the editorial section rather than the paid for advertorial section. This gives your story more credibility and in turn will be more believable to your audience. “Advertising is what you pay for, Publicity is what you pray for”. How can I afford to pay for PR and Marketing services? With Public Relations it’s important to understand that we are an investment, not an expense. With the right strategy, tools and team, public relations can put your brand awareness strategy into action. A key factor is to start with a measurable goal, this will allow us to identify what you want, what your budget is, and help us come up with a bespoke package that suits your goals and budget. If you would like to find out more about how ROUTEpr can help you with PR, marketing and events please get in touch with jackie@routepr.agency or call 01202 896698 for a free consultation to discuss your requirements.

SERVICING ALL INDUSTRIES

LET’S TALK ABOUT PACKING MATERIALS AND STORAGE Packing Materials Back in April, we talked about packing by the customer, our firm actually sells all the packing materials our own professional removal men use every day. In our office we have a wide range of cartons and other packing materials on display for our customer to see so that they can choose the packing materials they require to move.

INDUSTRIAL

We recommend the following cartons: • Pack II carton – for china and glass • Pack III carton – for pictures, lamps, large ornaments, linen, towels • Pack IV carton – for good linen and curtains • Pack VI carton – for small heavy items such as books, tins, CDs, DVDs, do not use anything bigger for books or other small heavy items. If you can’t move it you can’t expect removal men to!

COMMERCIAL

• Housepack carton – for pans, plastics and board games, children’s toys • Techno box – For computers/small TV/ stereo • Plasma TV carton – for plasma TVs and very large pictures • Hanging garment carton - for hanging clothes. Most professional removal companies provide these F.O.C. to their customers on the removal day. • Mirror/picture carton – as it says on the box, for pictures and mirrors, can use 2, 3 or 4 together to make a bigger box. We also have a selection of other packing materials such as, white paper, tissue paper, white vinyl tape (much stronger than polypropylene tape), mattress bags (also supplied FOC for customers on the day of removal), sofa covers, bubble wrap (in three sizes), tape guns, van blankets and stair carpet protector. Look at our website, www.pardyremovals.com, for more details.

Storage

R E TA I L

ARCHITECTURAL

Behind our office is a large warehouse full of wooden storage containers. These containers hold our customers effects while they are looking for a new home, having their home extended or renovated, working abroad or just decorating a room. We have over 350 containers and can be brought to the property on our container vans to load up our customer’s effects at their home and brought back to our warehouse where they will not be touched or seen until the customer requires them at their new home, delivered in the same containers they were taken away in, making a removal via store much smoother.

DOMESTIC

The warehouse is covered 24/7 with our eight CCTV cameras and a Red Care alarm system, so our customers goods could not be more secure. For self-storage see details from our sister companies website: www.christchurchselfstore.co.uk Look out for more removal and storage tips next time... or take a look at our website www.pardyremovals.com

ASK THE EXPERT

WESTERN DESIGN ARCHITECTS Miss L. Randolph Keyneston asks…

from

Tarrant

‘I am buying a listed cottage, it is really run down and the layout isn’t ideal for my family, what can I do to the listed building’? Conservation Architect and Director at Western Design Architects, Phil Easton answers this question. The great majority of listed buildings are Grade II which means although what you do is controlled, it is not as strict as the Grade I and Grade II* listings that apply to more significant historic buildings. It is a good idea to look in the National Heritage List for England to check if your property is listed. This will

tell you about the reason for your building’s original listing and describe the features that are important, they are not always the things that you imagined when you bought the place. Some buildings are listed and you may ask yourself why? Modern buildings can be listed if they are of historic or of architectural significance. You should know that everything within the curtilage of the listed building is covered by the listing. This means that if you have a pretty thatch cottage but with a fairly crude 1950’s concrete block extension or tumbledown garage and sheds, all these structures are listed, even garden walls and other landscape features. They can be changed but you will need Listed Building Consent.

If you own a listed building you have a statutory duty to maintain and repair it. Purchasers can find themselves buying a building in very poor condition and then being made to bring it up to a good standard. Local Councils have the ability to issue Repair Notices to force you to mend that leaking roof or repair the broken windows. It is a criminal offence to demolish all or part of a listed building or to remove or damage historic fabric without consent. This means you cannot just start making alterations without first consulting either a Conservation Architect or the local Conservation Officer to ensure what you are doing is legal. Whilst it is unlikely, it is possible that you could end up in court so always err on the side of caution.

54

Features that are in poor condition such as rotten structural timbers, floors, doors etc. should not be replaced if it is possible to repair them. If you do repair or replace them, this should always be completed after taking expert advice. It may be appropriate to use a different material so that it is quite clear that a modern replacement or repair has taken place and is not pretending to be something original.

What you can’t do As a general rule, you will not be able to use UPVC windows, doors, gutters or facias, double glazing (although other options are available such as slimline double glazing systems), pebbledash, artificial stone, stone cladding and repointing using cement mortar. What you can do All buildings evolve naturally and the way we live is constantly changing, so open fires are often replaced with wood burning stoves, central heating is added and most historic buildings were not originally constructed with bathrooms and WC’s. When these have been installed it has often been somewhere unsuitable so you may want to rearrange the layout of the house, build an extension or convert a loft space. In a loft conversion you will usually need conservation roof lights or possibly new dormers. These must be sensitively designed, be generally small and of traditional construction, avoid modern dormers as seen on ‘Traditional’ houses on developers estates. Extensions should be subservient to the main building in character and usually in size, they must not dominate the listed building but should respect it and its setting including the landscape.


ASK THE EXPERT

Much of the joy of owning a listed property is the ability to restore the building to its former splendour, reinstating unique features that reveal the building’s historic story. Whether you are looking to extend, convert or restore your own listed property or looking to buy one, then feel free to contact Western Design Architects for advice. #askWDA

t. 01258 830675 e. info@westerndesign.co.uk w. westerndesignarchitects.com a. 12 The Granary Hinton Business Park, Tarrant Hinton DT11 8JF

The extension can be contemporary and imaginative; it does not have to be a pastiche. A glass box makes a statement about the 21st century and is quite clearly something new and not pretending to be something old. Alternatively, a timber framed extension with glazing can be traditional in materials but modern in design and offer both space and light. Remodelling internally should ideally leave as many existing walls and openings as possible. Particularly in older cottages you may have several small rooms so it is sometime easiest to build a separate extension possibly linked to the house if you wish to gain a large spacious room. This leaves the small rooms to become cosy snugs or studies. The structure of the building will often be constructed with traditional techniques, materials and quality can be variable. Cob walls for example offer great thermal mass, keeping the building cool during summer and warm in the winter. Despite the constraints of listed buildings they have much to offer. A listed property can provide you with a quirky home full of interesting and unique details.

TALKING BUSINESS

EDWARDS ESTATE AGENTS A strong team for changing times It is a fragile time for us all, only days after the recent election turmoil and at the beginning of some tricky Brexit negotiations, a lot of us are unsure as to how the housing market is going to look over the coming months/years. We sat down with ‘Grant Edward Brooks’ owner of Dorset born ‘Edwards Estate Agents’ to find out his thoughts on the local area and the market in general. So, we’re now midway through 2017, how has business been for Edwards? Despite some initial concerns regarding Brexit, we have had an incredible start to the year which has continued through to now. The election worries did translate into a subdued market with confidence a little lower than we would like but correctly priced properties continue to attract interest. I think we all tend to fret when a big change is on the horizon, but in typical British Fashion, we hike up our boots and get on with life.

Ultimately we live in an area where people want to live, with some of the nicest surroundings in the country, so there are always people looking to move into the area. This is where our London marketing comes into play, with city folk hoping to move down to the coast and into the country in search of the ‘good life’ and all that entails such as great schooling, superb leisure facilities and some wonderful places to relax with families and loved ones. Our business continues to grow year on year and whilst the market is certainly going through a transitional phase at the moment, we are in a great position to adapt to the changing conditions. With our experienced staff, we can advise our clients correctly, with attention to market trends and with a true understanding of up to date values. Lettings is about to go through a huge transition, with the in-coming of new

legislation but with the talented team that we have, we are confident we can ease both landlords’ and tenants’ worries during this time and we pride ourselves on providing a very professional lettings service and full management package. I see the name ‘Edwards’ popping up all over the place, what developments are you guys currently working on? We are very passionate about new homes. As an area, we have been desperate for new homes to satisfy demand and to also promote movement within the market place. There are several large developments now either underway or in the final stages of planning which will be fantastic for the area as long as there is due consideration for transport links and services.

58

We have been instructed on the stunning development of Stapehill Abbey by the renowned local developers Ankers and Rawlings, which is widely considered to be the landmark development in the Dorset area for many years (or at least as long as I’ve been in estate agency), where they are transforming a listed building into a private estate of 47 new and converted properties set within 67 acres of private grounds which are simply jaw dropping and like living in a stately home. These properties are beautiful; meticulously designed and ideal for a variety of different people


TALKING BUSINESS

on the relevant portals but what these internet companies forget to mention is:

successfully sold the property and it has reached completion so we are committed to the very end.

1. The numerous viewings that take place to find the correct buyer who is in the position to proceed. (a service you will generally have to pay extra for, if available at all with internet agencies).

I think people are starting to realise that estate agency is about the service and in a changing and harder market, it is essential to have a professional, enthusiastic and committed team working for you. We have such a fantastic team here, who are both skilled at their jobs and just incredible people outright, I am always confident of our great service. Everything we do is about us trying to achieve the best possible value for your home, which is where having a dedicated agent can be the difference between a life changing amount for you.

2. The fact that often buyers will not purchase what they initially view but in fact are encouraged to view other properties by trained and experience staff during viewings that they then go on to buy. 3. The skill involved in negotiating effectively on our client’s behalf when a buyer is interested in making an offer which could make the difference of thousands of pounds.

Stapehill Abbey

and will hopefully be launched in August this year. We’ve also just been instructed on a development in Wimborne called the ‘Fleur De Lis’ by Renaissance Retirement which is a collection of 25 prestigious retirement apartments, set in the heart of the town within easy walking distance of the abundance of facilities on offer which we’re really excited about. Further projects include a variety of smaller developments by several local developers in areas such as Sturminster Marshall, with the creation of 6 family homes, Verwood with the exciting development for 6 executive houses, Ashley Heath which consists of 3 high end properties and many more on the way.

We’re very lucky to have been previously involved in the development of the Summit in Bournemouth and we are just finishing the sale of properties in the renovated ‘Bristol & West’ building in the town centre, so it really has been an exciting time for us here. It’s always going on in the background, but what’s going on with the rise of online estate agents? There has been an influx of Internet based estate agents shouting and screaming about the fact that they can save people money when selling and that they have property experts etc etc. The real work of an estate agent is not just in the selling of the property. Yes, the photos are taken, the details are written and the property is launched

4. The hours it takes and professional understanding that is involved in monitoring a sale as it proceeds, to ensure that all parties are instructing solicitors, paying for searches, instructing surveys, applying for mortgages, answering enquiries in a timely manner and all that is involved in the transaction. Without this, the sale is left to flounder and the time passes which leads to an increased risk of the buyer withdrawing. 5. The expertise involved in dealing with issues that arise such as survey problems, timescale issues, completion dates and just about anything else that can occur and risk the loss of the sale which could cost you thousands. There have been some interesting articles recently on the percentage of properties actually sold by these Internet agencies, which again highlights the fact that once the property is listed and the client has paid the upfront fee, there is little motivation from the agent to actually sell the property. This is completely different to our company which does not earn a penny until we have

How do you see the rest of the year going for Edwards? Fundamentally what we need is a bit of stability. Now that the election is over the market should calm down and we can all begin to find our feet and press onwards. We started our company in the midst of the biggest financial recession (back in 2009), so we are always prepared to adapt and be flexible. It is now more important than ever to constantly adapt to the changing conditions and innovate in terms of our marketing platforms and technology, which we will continue to do. How do you ensure that your staff are constantly trained and provide the best service? We are the only agent in our areas that have a training program in place that is approved by Trading Standards.

TALKING BUSINESS

CHURCHFIELD TALKS THE LETTINGS MARKET It’s a poignant time for the world of lettings. With changes in regulations and a lot of political messiness, renters have been left unsettled and unsure of what’s to come. Well, the team at Churchfield thought they’d take the opportunity to clear up the confusion and clarify a few things, so we asked them the questions that you were all dying to know… What big changes should I be aware of? Tenant Fee Ban - In the Autumn statement 2016, the government set out its plan to ban tenant fees in England. The deadline for responses to the proposed tenant fee ban has now come and gone, so we now await the plans on how this will be implemented throughout the industry. This will no doubt have a negative impact on tenants, landlord and agents alike, as these costs are recouped through other means. Whether that is through increased rents or whether they are passed on as yet another expense to the landlord, only time will tell. Legionella - Landlords must assess and control the risk of exposure of tenants to legionella to ensure the safety of their tenants, but this does not require an in-depth detailed assessment. Tenants should be kept informed of any control measures and tell the landlord if problems occur with water system or is the water is not heating properly. Did you know? The hot water should be set so that it is heated up to 60 degrees centigrade. Tenants should be advised to not interfere with the settings on the boiler or hot water system. Most landlords can assess the risk themselves and do not need to be professionally trained. However, landlords can arrange a competent person to carry out the assessment if they wish.

68

British Citizen, or European Economic Area (EEA) of Swiss National, or has a Right to Rent in the UK. The law introduces a requirement from 1 February 2016 for all landlords of private rental accommodation in England to carry out Right to Rent checks for new tenancy agreements to determine whether occupiers aged 18 and over have the right to live in the UK legally. Is it still worth investing in the buy to let market? Absolutely! There is of course a feeling of uncertainty when it comes to investing in buy to let property these days, landlords have been hit with increased stamp duty costs, taxes and stricter guidelines on ware and tare allowances. However with banks still offering very little incentive to pay your cash into ISA’s and savings accounts, property is still going to be the best place for your investment. The rental market is as strong as ever and moving forward will continue to be regardless of the changes in the political world. There will always be people looking for good quality rental accommodation in and around Bournemouth. What makes your lettings department different to the others? The difference with the team at Churchfield is that we really do care about what we do. We work hard to ensure that we manage both our tenants and landlords expectations. We are always there to assist with any query and do so quickly and efficiently. Our Google reviews are starting to pay off, as we now have clients coming to us with the hope that we can offer them something different to the experiences they have had in the past. We can always reassure them that this will be the case.

Did you know? The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) does not recognise a ‘Legionella test certificate’ and health and safety law does NOT require landlords to obtain or produce one. Records of any assessments should be kept and follow up checks need to be carried out.

• We do inspect your property quarterly and report back to you. • We do make sure the tenants are pre-qualified and are suitable for your property. • We do keep on top of maintenance and practice exceptional levels of communication, with both our tenants and landlords. What makes us different is that we do what we say we are going to do – and more!

Right To Rent - Under Section 22 of the Immigration Act 2014 a landlord must not authorise an adult to occupy property as their only or main home under a residential tenancy agreement unless the adult is a

I hear you have a new member of the lettings team? Yes! Karrie Wallis joined us in April 2017 initially to cover a member of our team who was on sabbatical. We are delighted that Karrie will be staying with

us on a permanent basis supporting our lettings and property management department. She is a superb addition to the team and has a great wealth of knowledge having worked within the industry in London before moving to Bournemouth. Karrie has an exceptional eye for detail and has already become a very valued member of the team. Churchfield are also delighted to announce our lettings negotiator Anna Corbridge – Atkins has now completed her NFoPP Level 3 Technical Award in Residential Letting & Property Management! The Technical Award is a nationally recognised industry qualification and meets the Associate of Residential Lettings Agents’ (ARLA) membership requirements. ARLA is the UK’s foremost professional body for letting agents. Anna: “I am really pleased to have passed my ARLA qualification, I feel that it has helped me gain a further knowledge of current legislation and has given me the confidence to be able to advise and share my knowledge with clients on more aspects within the industry”. Gemma – Associate Partner: “We are so pleased to see Anna complete this award, having been with the company since March 2016 she has excelled within her position, consistently going above and beyond and taking on additional responsibility along the way. Due to her commitment and great achievements to date, we are very excited to see Anna move into the position of Senior Lettings Negotiator within the Lettings Department. We are so pleased to see Anna progress within the company and are very excited for her future at Churchfield”.

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

FAMILY RENTAL V HMO RENTAL When investing in buy to let properties, we need to come back to why we are doing this. Are you likely to live in the property? The answer for most people is ‘no’. Therefore you must look at the investment as a business proposition and weigh up the following. 1. Is the location a good location? Will this attract professional tenants/families. Is it in a good school catchment area, look up their recent Ofsted reports. Families will move deliberately to areas where they want their children to go to a good school. 2. Will you sell the property later? Does it tick the boxes for when you want to sell it, be it in a couple of years or 20 years down the road. Does it have a garage, off road parking, a decent size garden, decent size rooms. 3. Will it give you a good return on your money. Here is an example In January 2017, a landlord completed on a 3 bedroom, semi-detached property in Poole. The master bedroom had an en-suite with 2 further decent size bedrooms. Downstairs was a good size kitchen and a one reception room creating a lounge/diner. (this was originally 2 reception rooms but the previous owners had knocked through). The landlord had two choices. Rent it to a family and achieve £1000 per calendar month or turn it into a HMO (house of multiple occupancy), which would bring in around £2500 per calendar month. The HMO route would require turning the one reception room back to 2 rooms, thus creating a five bed HMO. Fire doors on all the doors, fitted electrical fire alarms and adding a WC downstairs. Fortunately, Poole council does not have an Article 4 Direction blanket ban on new HMO’s and as it is only on 2 floors, this does not require planning or a HMO license. The £2500 per calendar month would include bills, which I would set aside £3-£400 per calendar month, however, I am sure you would agree, a very healthy return. The landlord in question opted for the HMO route and we were able to assist, guide and help through the transition and rent the rooms to professional people. So we come back to the question, why are we landlords? For a return whilst we own the property and for the capital enhancement when we come to sell. If you would like a friendly chat on perhaps converting an existing family rental to an HMO or look at ways of increasing your monthly income. Then give me a ring. If you are looking to rent, sell, buy or invest then take a look at OUR DOUBLE PAGE SPREAD ON PAGES 72 & 73. Have a good week! Sharon

E-SAVE HEATING 21st Century Insulation For over a decade now we have revered the familiar, accepting fiberglass as the go to insulator for our homes. Whilst old faithful has served us well, it’s time for a modern solution to an age-old heating problem. Introducing ‘E-save Heating’, the South’s pioneering installer of new age ‘Foam Insulation’. We interviewed owner and insulation guru ‘Vince Rice’, to find out more.

The client led Vince to their loft where they showed him their new ‘Foam Insulation’. Instantly he was inspired, he knew this was a great product and so he decided to get involved.

Who is E-save Heating?

Proof in the pudding

Having worked as a national sales manager for one of the largest solar energy companies in the UK, Vince has a lengthy career history in the energy industry. It all started when Vince was making a visit to a client regarding their solar panels, when he stumbled across something amazing.

We visited their showroom – situated in the Plowman’s Garden Centre in Ferndown – where Vince demonstrated the efficiency of Foam Insulation. In front of us were three Perspex boxes, each with a motorised fan underneath and a tube holding a Ping-Pong ball above. In the first

Vince diverted his attention, researching the best products and honing his business, establishing himself as the go to supplier of foam insulator in the area.

and third boxes were samples from popular fiberglass brands and in the middle, was a compact layer of the foam insulation. When the fans were switched on the balls above the fiberglass floated, whilst the ball above the foam remained still. The meaning? Fiberglass, whilst it does block the air, doesn’t stop it escaping totally – unlike the foam, which doesn’t allow the air to pass.

(With foam insulation) … savings on energy bills are between 20-45%. – VINCE RICE

126


HOME IMPROVEMENTS

How does it work? The foam acts as an airtight barrier in your loft (or base) of your home. The idea is to trap the heat in your home and not allow it to escape. Unlike fiberglass where this process is only slowed, the foam insulation prevents heat from escaping from your roof; meaning when you do put the heating on, it’s going to stay. Try this; Get the heating in your home to about 21 degrees and then switch it off. Time how long it takes until you start to feel cold again.

Efficiency & Savings There are a variety of factors that can alter this figure (e.g. double glazing, cavity wall insulation etc.), but in most cases the savings on energy bills are between 20-45%. Where the heat isn’t escaping from the roof, you’ll find you won’t need your heating to be on as long, nor will you need to use it as frequently. The fact of the matter is, as we get older we get colder, not to mention keeping our love ones safe and warm. There are so many people out there who are scared to turn the heating on for fear

of extortionate bills. Foam insulation is incredibly efficient, meaning you can sleep a little easier knowing you’ll only have to have the heating on for an hour instead of three. E-save Heating is leading the way with new age insulation in the South. Keep your eyes open for their reoccurring articles in House over the coming issues. if you are interested in having your home or building super insulated and would like some more information, then don’t hesitate to get intouch with Vince and his team, or better yet visit them at their HQ in the Plowman’s Garden Centre in Ferndown.

FOAM INSTALL

Improving the comfort of your living and working space • Saving money on energy bills • Increasing value of your property • Increasing EPC rating of your property • Improving living quality • Investing in your property FoamInstall is a relatively new company but has been developed off the back of a long standing construction company. They have a vast knowledge of the building and construction industry, undertaking roof works, loft extensions and dormers. In these projects they have used foam insulation and seen the full benefits it can bring customers. They therefore decided to setup a branch solely focused on bringing this product to customers both domestic and commercial, creating more awareness about how this product can benefit customers in a number of ways. Foam insulation is quickly applied and creates an airtight seal into the space it is applied, this results in better insulation than any other product can provide on the market. Fibreglass, being the main insulation product used today, is easily bested by foam insulation. Fibreglass insulation has gaps where it is not installed properly resulting in a 30% loss in effectiveness with a gap of even 3mm, is susceptible to damp and rot over time and causes

irritation to those that come in contact with it or the particles it disperses which can filter down through the house. Foam insulation has no gaps, is not susceptible to damp or rot, does not cause irritation and is an extremely durable product coming with a 25 year guarantee. Foam insulation can result in up to 50% savings on your energy bills. FoamInstall use the latest foam technologies from the UK’s number one supplier of foam insulation, Lapolla, each of the products are BBA accredited; open cell, closed cell and the cavity wall fill. They also offer breathable systems that can be installed to ensure the loft can naturally breathe. There are a wide range of application options with foam insulation ensuring they get it right for you. Foam Install surveyors can, at no cost to you, inspect your loft space or any other project and provide a cost of the installation.

FoamInstall made our roofing process extremely simple and easy. The expert knowledge of the friendly workers made the whole process simple and easy to understand. - AMY

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

NEW ŠKODA KAROQ

150

Launched later this year, the new Skoda Karoq, a compact SUV with a choice of five engines - four of them new - and offering what is described as ‘exceptional space.’ No prices are yet available. The luggage compartment has a capacity of 521 litres with the rear seats in place. With the rear seats folded down, the volume increases to 1,630 litres. The VarioFlex system consists of three separate seats, which can be individually adjusted and also be completely removed – and the KAROQ is then converted into a van-like SUV with a load capacity of 1,810 litres. Karoq will feature a comprehensive range of driver assistance systems includimg Park Assist, Lane Assist and Traffic Jam Assist, Blind Spot Detect, Front Assist with predictive pedestrian protection and Emergency Assist. Innovative features also include three personalisable keys. As soon as a certain driver unlocks the car, its individual setting are activated. They cover a wide range of operating areas, including driving profile selection, assistance systems, indoor and outdoor lighting, Climatronic, infotainment systems and electricallyadjustable seats. In addition, the front and rear seats are also heated if set.

ROAD TEST: SMART FORTWO PASSION Smart’s cute fortwo coupe has been a fixture in the city car class for some years and despite the arrival of lots of new competition in the sector, it still retains a compelling presence, writes NICK FLETCHER. The car is practical, economical and totally at home in the urban environment – it exudes a cool image, has stand-out styling, trendy features, good green credentials and will slot into the tiniest parking space. The new entry-level smart fortwo pure is priced from £9,995 and comes with a three-cylinder 1.0 litre 71 hp petrol engine and 5-speed manual gearbox. Standard kit includes electric windows, remote locking, audio system, height-adjustable steering wheel and driver’s seat and halogen headlamps with LED daytime running lights. Moving up range – and price – are sporty Brabus models and cabio and electric versions with some upper-spec models topping £16,000. Many buyers will opt for the featured test car, a mid-range passion model with the more powerful 90 hp turbo petrol unit. This version costs £11,720 and has extra equipment including alloy wheels, cruise control and connectivity features. Top speed is 96 mph, the 0-60 mph a peppy 10.4 seconds. Fuel economy is 67.3 mpg combined and emissions figure is 97g/km.

There are more conventional and spec-for-spec cheaper city-car rivals such as the Citroen C1, VW Up! and Fiat 500 yet there is just something about the smart fortwo that attracts buyers across a wide age-range, younger ones perhaps for its street-cred, older ones for its low running costs and city agility. Certainly few – if any - cars are as nimble in tight crowded city streets, and with plenty of room for two adults and adequate luggage space, the smart fortwo makes a lot of sense. Out of its urban territory, the fortwo is not quite so much fun, when higher speeds and less smooth roads reduce ride comfort and the short wheelbase and sharp steering unsettle its poise. However, very few buyers are likely to venture much beyond the city limits so it is not really a critcial factor for most. The cabin is quirkily styled with lots of curves and bug-eyed air-vents, but is very user-friendly, with switchgear handily placed and the two seats are roomy enough even for taller occupants. There is a small glove box and small door-pockets and even a couple of cup holders. The boot is a decent size at 350 litres but the odd shape is awkward for larger items. The high-up driving position is very good, seats are supportive and comfortable, and the driving agility makes the fortwo a pleasure to drive in its natural habitat - city streets.

REVIEWED

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

THE COTTONWOOD BOUTIQUE HOTEL Investigating the new “D’hote menu” Aaah The Cottonwood; House Magazine’s favourite boutique hotel. Having attended the launch of their recent ‘chocolate buffet’, we were thrilled to receive an invite to the unveiling of their new summer menu. No sooner did the email come through, did the team gather their things and make their way over. We sat in their hot pink dining room; the walls adorned with gilded mirrors, grand paintings and velvet fabrics. You could never say that the décor was ordinary, but never the less always eye-catching. As we sat down we were each handed a menu entitled ‘Dinner Table D’hote Menu’. Creating a menu for a hotel is always challenging. With a broad variety of guests always coming and going, it’s all about creating something for everyone to enjoy. Looking at the options it was clear that this was an eclectic menu, with European, Mediterranean and even Eastern influences throughout the various courses. The Garden Restaurant at the Cottonwood Boutique Hotel is run by executive chef Edward Lopes and Sous Chef Jonathan France. We got the opportunity to ask their team what the thoughts behind the menu were; “I want to produce high-quality tasty food that caters to all our clients. I’m keen to use locally produced, fresh goods. Born in Brazil and raised on Italian cooking gives me the opportunity to experiment with different flavours from around the world”, says Lopes. We decided to skip the starts and head straight to the main event, among our choices was the ‘Red Thai Chicken Curry’, ‘Potato Gnocchi’, ‘8OZ Sirloin Steak’ and the ‘Pan Roasted Duck Breast’. I had opted for the

Gnocchi. Served in a seriously moreish wild rocket pesto sauce, toasted pine nuts and an oversized cheese crouton, it was a delightful dish. The pasta itself was lovely, light and fluffy with just the right amount of starchiness. I coated every pasta pillow in the creamy sauce, using the pine nuts as a sort of breadcrumb coating before taking a bite. Other comments around the table included a glowing review from Ben, who thoroughly enjoyed his Red Thai Chicken Curry; “It’s pretty tasty. It’s got a little kick, but not too powerful and the sauce is very flavoursome”, he said. I also couldn’t help but notice the enormous homemade prawn cracker that rested on top – a rather special touch to the dish I thought. I would have liked to obtain a review mid-steak from Gary and Ross, but there was finite time between it arriving and disappearing down their oesophagus, though based on the smiles on their faces I’d say it would have been a glowing report. We each finished our two-course affair with a dessert. I had picked something less sweet in a classic ‘cheese board’. Served with three cheeses – each individually delicious for their own unique flavours – an array of biscuits, a handful of grapes (fruit and cheese always a winner for me) and tomato chutney. Now that’s how you end a meal properly – or so I thought… Vicky was the last among us to receive her dessert (and you know what they say about saving the best). Sat in front of her was their “Dark Chocolate and Amaretto Cheesecake” it even sounds delicious. The team watched eyes glued to Vicky’s spoon as she slid

it through the layers of mousse, picking up the biscuit base with it. She took the first bite, by this point the team staring had gotten weird and she turned us away, but I kept one eye open as she engulfed the spoon. We’ll never really know what happened that day, but I’m pretty sure Vicky had an outer body cheesecake experience. Needless to say that the combination of rich chocolate, cheese and booze was a huge winner. We packed our bags and rolled ourselves back to the office, positive comments and smiles all around. I recommend paying the Cottonwood a visit your next lunch break, ASAP. Meet Head Chef; “Edward Lopes” Having grown up with his grandmother, who is a true Italian with a huge passion for food, it was only natural that kind of influence would rub off. In his late teens Lopes’ family opened a restaurant where he could the skills that he had learnt from his grandmother into practice. Lopes came to England in 2004 and started to working at the Wessex Hotel as a kitchen porter. Within a few years he had worked his way up to Junior Sous Chef and has since worked in various different 3 and 4 star hotels around Bournemouth, building an enviable reputation for seriously good food.

It’s back to the swinging sixties as the award-winning Highcliffe Charity Players get groovy with their latest musical – ‘Made in Dagenham’, the inspiring, heart-warming story about a group of Dagenham female factory workers who made history fighting for women’s rights against the might of Ford. It is staged at the Regent Centre, Christchurch, for five performances (including a Saturday matinee) from Wednesday 26th to Saturday 29th July 2017, and sponsored by local Ford dealers, Keith Motors. Adapted from the much-loved 2010 British film, this funfilled, high octane, feel-good show was inspired by true-life events – the 1968 women sewing machinists’ strike at the Ford Motor Company’s Dagenham plant in Essex, which would lead to the Equal Pay Act of 1970. The show is written by playwright Richard Bean (One Man, Two Guvnors) with a catchy rock and pop score from Grammy Award-winning British composer David Arnold (Sherlock, Little Britain, Independence Day and Quantum of Solace) and lyrics by Richard Thomas (Jerry Springer:The Opera).

FOOD & DRINK

REVIEWED

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

DANCING MOOSE Just seriously good food

Ok, off the bat spoiler alert: WOW. Dancing Moose take a well-deserved bow [claps ferociously in head]. I suppose you’re wondering what prompted the premature congratulations, well, allow me to explain… Situated in the heart of locally adored Ashley Cross, the Dancing Moose is an integral part of the community hub. Serving brunch, lunch and dinner (among various other unique food specials throughout the week) this is the place to go for round the clock grub. With a new menu on the horizon our team were invited to get sampling, and so sample we did. It was a gorgeous day, the sun was shinning and anticipation was stirring for the food that was to come. On arrival we were greeted by manager ‘Steve Madden’, a man with clear psychic abilities, as no sooner were we sat did the ice-cold beers and ciders arrive. A few sips and a glance around the venue later we were greeted by Executive Chef (and owner of the Dancing Pub Company) ‘Charlie Bronson’. Charlie began his culinary career at the young age of 16, where he originally trained under the management of James Bronson at the Winchester Pub in Bournemouth. Since then, Charlie has worked his way up, mastering his craft and gathering skills at various restaurants including working under the leadership of Chef Daniel Boulard at Bar Boulard in Knightsbridge and then moving on to Junior Sous Chef at Boulard’s D/ Bar, in Toronto. Charlie has now returned to his roots at the Dancing Pub Company and is excited to take the menu into new and exciting territories.

Charlie sat with us and explained that today we would be trying a selection of new and exciting tapas dishes, along with some sandwiches, wraps and sharing food that he has been planning for their upcoming menu. Hearing him describe the dishes, the team’s hunger grew. Left with the mouthwatering dish descriptions and our imaginations running wild, we waiting patiently(ish). Before we go onto the food, I should mention that this is not the only member of the Dancing family. They also own the Dancing Duck in Westbourne and have exciting plans to open up further branches in the local area in the not to distant future. Our first course arrived; an array of meat, veg, dips and all sorts of goodies covered the table. Unable to contain my excitement I reached for the first dish: ‘Salted Padron Peppers and Crispy Chorizo’. It was a great start to the meal; simple, delicious food at it’s finest. Next up was the ‘Crispy Duck Legs’, which were amazing. The batter was perfectly crisp and the accompanying homemade sweet and sour dipping sauce added an extra special flavour to the whole dish. Last to arrive – and you know what they say about saving the best – was the ‘Sticky Korean Chicken Thighs’. The team dug their hands into the decorative skillet and each pulled out a thigh. We took our first bites – oh my. Even before finishing our first portions we all quickly divided up the rest, knowing that it would be war if we didn’t. This was a stand out dish; intense BBQ flavours, full of depth and exceptionality. The contrast between sweet and savoury, with a little kick from the fresh chilies was honestly one of the best things I’ve tasted. If I could have had a meal of chicken thighs, I’d be

happy. Slipping into the early stages of a food coma we questioned whether we could go on. But being the troopers that we are, we persisted. The second course was an array of subs, wraps, salads oh and just a teeny tiny, industrial sized tray’s worth of tacos (give me strength). First to sample was something Charlie called a ‘French Dip’; succulent steak slices sandwiched between two mustard laced buns, complete with a gravy dip. Not for dainty eaters, but for those of us (myself included) who don’t mind messy eats in the pursuit of good food, then this is the sandwich for you. Every element was flavoursome, especially the dipping gravy, which made the entire dish. The caesar salad was fresh and loaded with fresh ingredients – a classic dish done extremely well. The tray of tacos arrived and we were drooling. Soft shell tortillas, loaded with all kinds of ingredients; marinated meats, all served with perfectly paired homemade sauces, crunchy veg and herbs. After finishing up, I sat back and thought about the meal we’d just had. This was some seriously good food. I was blown away by the flavour combinations and attention to detail and I have to congratulate Charlie on what I know will be an incredibly popular menu. This independent biz gets a foodie high-five from all of our team and we can’t wait to go back!
