NEWS DR LINDA EVE - THE FACE OF THE BRAND NEW SK:N CLINIC BOURNEMOUTH The latest news stories in your area.

CALLING ALL BAITER PARK LANDLORDS Goadsby’s Poole Lettings department are delighted to announce they have recently let three 1 and 2 bedroom properties in the sought-after harbour side location of Baiter Park, all within the space of 2 weeks. All three properties attracted a significant amount of interest, meaning we were able to secure professional tenants swiftly for our landlords, however unfortunately leaving many suitable applicants disappointed, and still on the lookout for similar properties. Kathryn De Lorey of Goadsby Poole Lettings comments “Baiter Park is the ideal spot for a wide range of applicants, being so close to Poole Harbour and the Quayside, as well as the town centre and local transport links. This means demand in the area is currently very strong and we are continuing to see properties let extremely quickly. Quality houses and apartments such as these are rarely on the rental market for long.” If you have a property in the area and are considering letting it out, please contact Kathryn De Lorey for a free market appraisal on 01202 686555 or Kathryn.delorey@goadsby.com.

CASH FOR KIDS GRANT WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE Diverse Abilities, Dorset’s disability charity, is delighted to have received a grant of £2,135 from Wave 105 Cash for Kids for its children’s service - Coping with CHAOS. The grant will help fund play sessions for children with disabilities and their siblings during the school holidays. Activities will include trips to the cinema, sessions with Crazy Creatures, going swimming and trampolining, and much more. The sessions provide lots of opportunities for social interaction, and play is a great way for children and young people to explore the world around them. It allows them to learn and develop in a safe environment with trained staff. A parent, whose child attends the charity’s play sessions, said: “I can’t quite express how important these sessions are. The kids are well supported to be safe, enjoy themselves, try new things and build

relationships. Us parents can relax and have a chat to others - who understand where we are coming from. A memory I will never forget is during a swimming session. I saw my son come down the water slide for the first time ever... he was so proud of himself! Thank you so much Cash for Kids we really appreciate your help.” Tessa Masterman, manager at Coping with CHAOS, said: “All children need to socialise and play with others, but children with disabilities need to be able to do this within an environment of acceptance and tolerance. We provide a safe and nonjudgemental atmosphere for our children and parents to attend and are very grateful to Cash for Kids for enabling us to provide more sessions of ‘fun’ with our families.” To find out more regarding the Diverse Abilities Children’s Team and how they could support you, visit www.diverseabilities.org.uk/children

CHARITY CELEBRATE ITS FIRST LOTTERY WINNER Diverse Abilities, the Dorset disability charity, launched its new lottery last month and after just four weeks there has been a winner. Sarah Long from Bournemouth, whose son Adam is also supported by the charity’s children’s team, won £1,000 after five of her numbers matched the ones that were drawn. As well as winning a great prize, Sarah was one of the charity’s first subscribers to the brand-new lottery and she couldn’t believe it when she won such a big cash prize so quickly. Sarah said: “While it’s fun to play I know that I am helping to support the charity at the same time which is fantastic. Diverse Abilities is a fantastic charity and this is a great way to get involved and help them raise funds.” The lottery draw takes place every Saturday, with each entry costing just £1. When you join the lottery, you’re allocated your own six-digit lottery number. A random winning number is drawn – the aim is to match the winning numbers. There are various prizes right up to the jackpot prize of £25,000. For every £1 entry, 50p will help Diverse Abilities’ work locally and you will be making a difference. Anyone can sign up to the lottery. To find out more visit www.diverseabilities. org.uk/lottery.

home, Equity Release providers can offer a solution. In the first of a two-part article, Emma Crowley from Bruce Lance in Poole explains the options. There are two routes to Equity Release: one is to take out a lifetime mortgage and the other is the home reversion option. Most people choose a lifetime mortgage, however. Provided the property is your main residence, you can take out a lifetime mortgage and still retain ownership of the property. You have the right to live in the property

Steve went on to explain: “Small firms or a ‘Man & Van’ very often don’t employ their staff directly hiring casual labour when needed.

Also bear in mind that if the crew aren’t employed full time, once the move is complete and they move on, there may be no comeback”.

A lifetime mortgage has a guarantee in respect of negative equity, which means that if, after all expenses are settled, the property is worth less than the value of the mortgage, the lender cannot call on the balance of the estate for the difference. Most lifetime mortgage providers do allow you to transfer the mortgage to an alternative property should you wish to move, provided that the new property is suitable security for their loan.

Do any of your properties have an EPC rating below E? Yes, No, Don’t Know? If you answered either ‘Yes’ or ‘Don’t Know’ and are a commercial and residential landlord then you need to be aware of the new energy efficient regulations coming out in April 2018. As of April next year a landlord of any commercial and residential property which has an EPC rating of F or lower won’t be able to let the property in question or renew an existing tenancy, which could cause financial issues in terms of lost rent and/or potential fines and may have an impact on rent reviews. If you continue to rent properties that do not meet the minimum EPC rating after 1 April 2018 financial penalties for failure to comply can vary from £5,000 to £150,000, so it is vital to check the EPC ratings of current properties and potential purchases before this date. As with much legislation, there are exemptions to this requirement, listed buildings for example.

An exemption requires registration and lasts for five years but cannot be transferred to a new landlord. Current landlords also need to review their leases to ensure the tenant cannot carry out any works that may reduce the energy efficiency of the property. Landlords should also be wary of allowing tenants to obtain new EPCs as modern providers are bound by more stringent criteria and the tenant’s provider may not be as experienced as the landlord’s, which may result in a lower EPC rating than previously obtained. If you would like any further advice, please contact John Munro j.munro@laceyssolicitors.co.uk or Patsy Whitford p.whitford@laceyssolicitors.co.uk on 01202 557256.

TAX CHANGES PROMPT SURGE IN LANDLORDS SWITCHING TO HOLIDAY LETTING If you’re a buy to let landlord you could be forgiven for thinking that the government has had it in for you in recent years

haven’t made. If you are a higher rate taxpayer- you owe the tax even though you didn’t make the money.

So why the rush to holiday letting? I guess if you are going to raise some tax revenue then landlords are a group that you can bash without losing a lot of votes and they have certainly been bashed lately. It’s long been an investment model to push borrowing to get a second rental property. The objective is capital gain and the eventual reward comes from selling after taking a ride on the property market. Capital gains tax was reduced from April 2016 to 10% for basic rate tax payers and 20% for higher rate taxpayers but the boot was thoroughly put in to landlords by making the rates 18% & 28% for residential property. Then came the restriction on buy to let mortgage interest relief. Throughout the years that I worked in the finance industry there was a simple answer for clients bemoaning a large tax bill- if you owe the tax you must have earned the money. This is now not true for buy to let landlords. Although lending rules have tightened it’s still pretty common for a buy to let owner to have a property that only breaks even after costs or even loses a little each year. Traditionally many landlords have been fairly relaxed about this sort of situation thinking that it’s a long term investment and the property is going up in value. Between now and April 2020 a landlord will face an increasing tax charge on money they

The furnished holiday let tax regime remains a very favourable one and although the yield after expenses may be lower than 12 months of unbroken tenancy the other benefits can significantly outweigh this. Mortgage Interest Relief. The new rules restricting tax relief on interest payments do not apply to holiday lets. Capital Allowances Expenditure on capital items can be written down completely in the first year. This can lead to a significant ‘tax free’ rental period. Capital Gains Tax Furnished Holiday Lets qualify for entrepreneurs relief giving a flat rate of 10% on disposal compared to a minimum of 18% and typically 28% on buy to lets

for entrepreneurs relief even if the place has been a buy to let for a long period.

Rollover Relief. When you sell a furnished holiday let and buy another the gain can be ‘rolled over’ into the new property so the tax is not payable at that point provided the new property is of equal or greater value. Note that capital gains tax does not apply after death so if you never sell the property you never pay the tax.

You have to make the property available for holidays for most of the year and you can’t do a 6 month winter let. On the practical side you need to furnish the place and if you don’t want to create a lot of work for yourself you’ll need to employ an agent offering full service including cleaning, linen and callout service for guests.

Retrospective Benefit. Are You Sitting On A Gain? This is a really big one in certain circumstances operating as a holiday let for at least a full tax year the entire gain may qualify

What do I need to do to qualify as a FHL (Furnished Holiday Let)?

Other Benefits Holiday letting is certainly a different experience but there are some great practical advantages.

Empty weeks to use yourself - you’re probably going to have 20+ weeks unoccupied in the property which you can use yourself or give away stay there after a night out, put up friends & family who are visiting or impress somebody coming to a business meeting. Regular maintenance - the property is cleaned every week and things are dealt with straight away so it’s always in tip top condition. Maintaining income when selling - there’s no need to stop letting if you want to sell the place, you can do viewings on changeovers, block some weeks out and market in the winter period, there may even be a premium for the benefit of future bookings. A lot less hassle with tenants. You can get an awkward guest but your agent will deal with them and they’ll be gone at the end of the week. There’s never occupancy without payment or eviction to deal with.

TALKING BUSINESS

CHURCHFIELD TALKS...

PROPERTY; ALWAYS A GOOD IDEA Over the past two decades property prices have soared, creating a sizeable profit for those who invested early and whilst the growth has slowed compared to the giant leaps of previous years, property is still deemed one of the soundest investments. With the days healthy annuities and a waver in our ageing financially security, we are treating our properties as our very own slice of pension pie. So with all of this surrounding pressure and opportunity, how do you go about choosing the right agent to assist you? Well, we asked the experts over at Churchfield for some up to the minute advice and maybe even some reasons as to what makes them so special… Why is property still such a good investment? To coin the expression ‘safe as houses’ sums up the answer to the question. With rising property prices throughout the UK, many people who have not previously invested in property are now preparing their capital to do so. Presently the demand for property remains high with supply being somewhat restricted and therefore where there is demand but short supply there is always price inflation. As a nation we like to own our properties, this was seen in the 1970’s with the government’s right to buy scheme which allowed those who previously had rented the opportunity to become home owners. How has (if at all) the latest political events influenced the property market? To a certain extent it has seen potential purchasers both home owners and investors taking more time to come to a final decision. As the Medias output contains a lot of mixed messages, which the buying public and even the selling public do not always understand clearly. Until the public get the clarification that they seek, it will ultimately mean they sit on their hands a little longer.

Why should people invest in property in Bournemouth? Latest figures reveal that Bournemouth’s house prices are some of the fastest growing in the country. Purchasers from out of area now know that Bournemouth and

the surrounding areas have a lot to offer to all market demographics, such as families moving into the area and people retiring into the area, all of which are seeking a significant lifestyle change. What makes you guys unique? What makes Churchfield unique from all other agents is our long established presence in the localised area. Churchfield as a company are one of a very small handful that are able to offer their clients a professional service for Residential Sales, Lettings, Holiday Lettings and Land and Development. Offering bespoke selling and purchasing packages are contributory factors to Churchfield gaining a Google 5 star rating, please check out our reviews to see what people think. If a sale runs into a problem, how do you guys ensure a smooth resolution? At Churchfield we pride ourselves on having a designated sales progressor who follows the whole process from offer to completion. We continue to actively market properties that have been sale agreed up until the point of exchange, thus ensuring all our vendors have a contingency plan. Having built up very good rapport with most of the local solicitor firms and financial institutions, good communication ultimately means we do not run into many problematic sales.

TALKING BUSINESS

EQUITY RELEASE LIFETIME MORTGAGES The Need to Knows We hear a lot in the media about dwindling pensions and a concern for our financial security as we age. Considered by experts as one of the soundest investments, property – for a lot of people – is key to a secure financial future and moreover our children’s financial future. We met with financial expert Liz Murley, of Apex CB Financial Planning, to find out more about Equity Release (now known as Lifetime Mortgages) and how they can work for you. Who is Apex CB Financial Planning? For those of you who haven’t (yet) heard of Apex CB, here is the background; it all started with Managing Director Chris Ryan, who opened the business back in 2004. Having been in financial services professionally for 12 years, he saw an opportunity to develop a business focused on long-term relationships and a personal approach.

76

Liz has worked in financial services primarily in the mortgage sector for 35 years, developing a broad knowledge of all property related financials. A few

years ago, her appetite for change grew and she decided to explore the world of ‘Equity Release Mortgages’, so she went back to studying and obtained the required qualifications. It was towards the end of her studies that (by chance) Liz and Chris got talking. He was looking for someone with a complementary skillset and likewise Liz was looking for somewhere to put her new skills into good use and so the alliance was formed.

Liz Murley,

Apex CB handles everything you would expect from a fully independent financial advice business, including wealth management, investment, pensions and life assurance and now a full mortgage advice service. Together with Liz’s skills and experience, they are also pleased to offer a full financial planning and advice service for Lifetime Mortgages. The old-school equity release schemes of 10 years ago developed a poor reputation for being expensive, complex and in some cases involved selling your home for a discounted up-front lump sum.

Chris Ryan


TALKING BUSINESS

Today’s Lifetime Mortgages are very different and offer financial peace of mind in your later life, with borrowing costs at a historic low, and advice that is fully regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (the financial industry watchdog) and covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme. It is the fastest growing area of the mortgage market with total lending for 2016 reaching £2.15 billion. Equity Release Council research revealed that a total of 27,534 new plans were agreed last year. For some, they are the only solution to the 1.5 million interest only mortgages, where in many cases the borrower has no plan to repay the loan and unable to extend the term. Faced with selling or repossession when the mortgage ends, many are switching to a Lifetime Mortgage instead. The Bank of Mum and Dad It’s no secret that today’s generation of first-time buyers are struggling, with many of them turning to the “Bank of mum and dad” to raise the deposit to buy their first home. The Halifax FirstTime Buyer Review has found that the average deposit is now £33,000 in the South – £100,000 if you are buying in London. For many parents and grandparents a Lifetime Mortgage

provides the ideal solution to help the younger generation get their first home without tying up their savings or liquidating investments and there can be Inheritance Tax savings by gifting away equity. Known as “intergenerational gifting”, money gifted as an advanced inheritance could help your family raise the money needed for a home of their own. What is a Lifetime Mortgage? Essentially it is a loan secured against your property, which allows you to retain ownership where you don’t have to make monthly payments. What are some of the benefits? There are numerous benefits that come with an Equity Release -Lifetime Mortgage, including: • The ability to release money without selling your home. • You can live in your home as long as you want to. • You can choose to have a lump sum, more income or a cash reserve to draw on as you need. • Fixed borrowing costs so you know exactly what you will owe at all times. • The ‘no negative equity’ guarantee means that you will never leave any debt for your family.

How much could you borrow? There are some age restrictions when it comes to actually taking out a Lifetime Mortgage, with that being said, there’s no reason why you can’t prepare yourself with a wealth of knowledge on the subject for the future. The maximum amount you could borrow is 50% of the value of your property (subject to a variety of factors). Say you’re between the ages of 60-70, in generally good health and your property is in good condition, you could borrow up to 35% of the value of your home. An individual analysis would be performed in any new enquiry, to give a specific percentage. Lifetime Mortgages can be a useful solution for many reasons, such as providing support to your family to help them onto the property ladder, repaying your existing interest only mortgage, supplementing your pension and lifestyle in retirement to name but a few. Apex CB: A Name You Can Trust Apex has two fully qualified Equity Release advisers in Chris and Liz and are members of the Equity Release Council, so you can rest assure that you are in the safe hands of their expert team. As an independent, family-run business, Apex CB understand the importance of being able to help your loved ones, which is why they work on your behalf to understand your circumstances and find the best possible solution for you and your individual situation. The whole process always begins with a free, no-obligations consultation to explore your options. Chris explains, “We recognise that taking out a lifetime mortgage after spending years

working to repay the house purchase mortgage doesn’t sit well with many people. Therefore before deciding that a Lifetime Mortgage is the best option we discuss all other possibilities first.” Apex CB will then get to work, undertaking extensive research of the market, to find a solution best matched to your individual needs. There are no secrets here; everything is laid out in black and white, no hidden fees or nasty surprises and they encourage the whole family to be informed throughout the process. Most importantly, Apex CB is there for you every single step of the way to make sure things flow smoothly. As an extra precaution with Lifetime Mortgages you must also receive independent legal advice and have plenty of time to reflect on your decisions. For many people, easy access to capital just isn’t an option in later life. Whether it’s to help family, make home improvements, supplement your pension or simply enjoy the lifestyle in retirement you dreamed of, a Lifetime Mortgage could be the answer. This is a Lifetime Mortgage, to understand the features and risks always ask for a personalised illustration.

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

BACK OFF! YOU NEED US! Two interesting editorials caught my eye this week. The first was from Iain Duncan Smith, saying the Government should call off the fight

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.

against private landlords. The second, was NLA (National Landlords Association) saying the buy to let tax changes could be the next pension crisis. Ian Duncan Smith said it was time to reconsider “the way we treat private landlords”. He also says: “A large number of them are talking about no longer buying to let, and they blame it on George Osborne’s decision to impose a Stamp Duty levy on the purchase of homes to rent, to restrict mortgage interest relief to the basic rate of income tax, and to tax a landlord’s turnover rather than profits… “Despite what has been said and written, they’re not enormous property magnates, for the most part, but often people using the market to help provide retirement income in later life or assets to pass on to their children.” The National Landlords Association (NLA) is warning that 70% of buy-to-let investors are reliant on the property to fund their retirement, so the extra taxes will hit their later life savings. The NLA cited ONS stats showing the average retired household spends £21,770 on living costs each year. An individual retiree would need £15,000 more than the full basic state pension of £6,359, which is why it says many have turned to buy-to-let. “Around a quarter of UK landlords are already retired, and 37% are

HOUSE ASKS OWNER ‘MOE KOCHAR’ ABOUT THE LATEST IN LETTINGS It’s tough to find opportunities that can generate rental yields of 8-10%, particularly in an area where property prices are on the up. It’s more likely to expect yields of 4-5% in Bournemouth and Poole, but with PRIMOVE it is possible to reach the juicy double figures. I know this because I have done it for many years. PRIMOVE, which covers Poole and Bournemouth, is here to help landlords not punish them. Most agents will offer an obvious route to double figure yields – recommending investing in a HMO (Home of Multiple Occupancy) or Serviced Accommodation. However, and here comes the gold, it is possible to achieve the big numbers from a regular single tenancy using PRIMOVE’s 3 stage action plan. Something we like to call “Fair Lettings”. 1. We care about you and your property and want you to maximize your income because we think like a landlord.

“Get double numbers from a regular, single tenancy” Example: One of my clients has a cracking 2-bedroom flat in Bournemouth, where the Fair Lettings strategy worked perfectly. A long lounge/diner with a window at either end was begging to demonstrate the value of the stud wall. Following obtaining the necessary consents, we helped with minor adjustments and converted this 2-bedroom property into a 3 bedroom flat. Shortly after completing the renovation my lettings team located a tenant that paid £1100 pcm. The property was purchased for £130,000 and rented out for £1100 pcm (£13,200 pa) generating a cash yield of 10.15%. 2. As PRIMOVE is setup for landlords by landlords we know unfair fees can affect your yield/income. That’s why we have the fairest and most honest fees in the area to support those hoping to build a property portfolio. 3. We treat tenants with respect. We support the government’s ban on fees because for too many years agents have taken advantage and we guarantee that we will not pass the loss of these fees onto landlords. We know that if you treat tenants with respect they will pay their rent, keep your property in good condition and stay in your property for longer. How do we know this? We’ve been there ourselves. Landlords, if you want to increase your income and have an agent who knows what they are talking about, then please contact us for a no-obligations chat on how we can help you!

3 FRESHAS-A-DAISY LOOKS FOR YOUR HOME Make rooms look blooming lovely with floral designs guaranteed to grow on you... Florals never fade or go out of fashion, thanks to our enduring passion for reflecting nature and the great outdoors in our homes - and right now, they’re in full bloom everywhere. But just as you wouldn’t have a wilting bouquet of flowers in your home, any floral look you introduce should be fresh and bang-up-to-date too. Luckily, today’s designers are making sure their interpretations are a world away from the old-hat chintz and fussy ‘grandma’ looks of yesteryear. They’ve embraced petal-power with bright, bold, new designs, aided by upto-the-minute digital techniques.

RIGHT: Euonia watercolour floral wallpaper, pink and grey, 99 a roll, available from Woodchip and Magnolia BELOW: Menton Tropical Roman Blind, from £53.95, available from English Blinds

ABOVE: Feminine pink is offset by a bold design in this Graham and Brown Painted Tulips Wall Mural

ABOVE: Iosis Nine Cherry Blossom Cushion, £65, available from Cotswold Trading

So pick one of these looks - no water needed, and they’re guaranteed never to wither...

“Unusually, the trend will carry through late into winter and those pastel hues will move into deeper, darker reds and pinks. Plum and deep magenta against a smoky black background will conjure a dramatic, gothic effect.” Woodchip & Magnolia has a stunning Eunoia Watercolour Floral Wallpaper, £99 a roll (woodchipandmagnolia.co.uk).

The New Pretty Think pastel pinks and wallpapers featuring petals and pretty blooms, for a fresh, feminine spin on florals... Rebecca Snowden, interior style advisor at Furniture Choice (www. furniturechoice.co.uk), says: “When people talk about florals, it tends to be centred around spring and summer fashion and interiors, with powdery pastel pinks a hot favourite both for the catwalk and the home this year.

DECOR TIP: Hot house botanical prints are packing an interiors punch this year, featuring vibrant Caribbean colours on dark backgrounds. Turn up the heat with English Blinds’ Menton Tropical Roman Blind, from £53.95.

Dramatic Blooms Striking, pared-back, nature-inspired designs and bold colourways are perfect for a no-fuss or frills approach to this look. “Giant florals have been the stars of the catwalk shows, and now, from wardrobe to walls, we’re reviving floral patterns and embracing large-scale designs in bright, vibrant colours for a statement look,” says Paula Taylor, colour and trends specialist at Graham & Brown (www.grahambrown.com/uk). “Expressive, elaborate blooms are making their way onto our walls, furniture and homeware to create dramatic, coloured backdrops for the home. People are becoming much braver in their choice of design and colours and after decades of plain magnolia walls, Brits are falling back in love with these patterns. It’s time to be colour-confident again and express personality through dynamic palettes and opulent patterns.” DECOR TIP: Plants and flowers will always stand out against a dark backdrop of deep grey or black. Test your taste by painting an alcove or the inside of a dresser in a dark hue and then arrange bright flower displays in front of the backdrop, so the colour really pops.

Classic Country Botanical illustrations, that could have come straight from the pages of a traditional nature study book, combine with natural textures and a neutral colour palette for an update on that perennial favourite - classic country. “If, like me, you love reflecting the subtle tones that you find in the garden, a palette of lavender, sage, rose and heather is a perfect place to start,” advises Claire Hornby, creative stylist, Barker & Stonehouse (www. barkerandstonehouse.co.uk). “These can be incorporated into your scheme through soft furnishings, or smaller upholstered pieces featuring designs reminiscent of natural history drawings, which will inject character into your living space.” “If an abundance of flowers, plants and all things natural appeals to your sense of style, then don’t be afraid to use a large variety of plants and blooms in one room, to help achieve a fresh feel.

“These can be potted plants, vases of flowers, or even indoor trees. Intersperse greenery with countrythemed decorative objects.” DECOR TIP: Wallpapering stair risers with floral papers is an inventive way to conjure a country-cottage look. Strip a staircase of carpet, sand and paint with floor paint, then use wallpaper off-cuts or a paper of your choice for each stair. Attach using wallpaper paste or a strong glue.

You will have seen the old retro filament lamps making a comeback in the bars and restaurants around town. These lamps have a fine tungsten filament that produces a soft warm glow and normally come in really intricate shapes. This normally means that they are really expensive too. The fine filament means that they are fragile and easily broken; the lifetimes of the filament are short too because of the heat that they produce. Now there is an LED equivalent, these have the soft warm glow just like the originals. The upside with LED is that they do not have the fragile filament and are not so easily broken. They run cool so will not burn if you were to touch them and of course being LED they are really cheap to run at just 6W. We are stocking them here now at Led-Zip in different shapes and with or without a bronze tint on the glass for that signature retro look. They are fully dimmable and priced at under £10. We are also stocking the retro pendant drop lamp holders with or without the shade ring and with twisted cords to really finish them off. They come in different finishes such as bronze and pewter and with different cord colours, these too are very reasonably priced at under £20. We have a display of these lamps and the pendants in our window at the showroom on Wimborne Rd Northbourne so if you are passing stop for a look or pop in and see them up close.

7 STEPS TO GROWING PERFECT PUMPKINS IN TIME FOR HALLOWEEN As in most ventures, good preparation and timing are everything. Ensure your fright night is a glowing success by following these practical tips With Halloween a few months away, there’s still time to plant pumpkin seeds in preparation for harvesting by October 31. Growing your own is a big trend in the UK and to get you even more inspired, Homebase seed buyer David Gillespie has offered seven top tips to make sure you have a plump pumpkin to carve this year.

1

Pick a sunny, spacious spot

Choose a suitable location with lots of space and direct sunlight. If you’re short on space then not to worry; you can grow pumpkins in a 40-litre bucket.

2

Sow seeds in warm soil

Prepare your patch, ensuring you have rich, well-drained soil, and mix in lots of compost. Pumpkin seeds are sensitive to the cold, so make sure the soil is as close to 30C as possible before planting. To help the soil warm quickly in the sun, create a small mound a few inches in height and plant three to five pumpkin seeds around the sides of it. Seeds are better sown on their side, direct into the compost.

3

Train the plants to grow up trellis

Once the pumpkins germinate and grow to about two or three inches tall, you can train them to grow in the direction you want. If you don’t have a lot of space, train your vines to grow up a trellis.

4

Keep them moist

Water your pumpkins regularly; they need about an inch of water per week and this will need to increase during flowering season. Just make sure you avoid getting the fruit and flowers too wet, or it will increase the chance of rot. Pumpkins love food, so feed them regularly with a water/ compost mixture, or use manure if it’s available.

5

At later stages, prune unruly vines

Pinch off the fuzzy ends of each vine after a few pumpkins have formed to stop the vines growing. You should also prune unruly vines to preserve the energy for fruit growth. As the fruit develops, they should be turned - make sure the vines aren’t damaged when doing this - to encourage an even shape.

6

Get your timing right

Most pumpkin varieties take 85 to 125 days to mature. So time your sowing to ensure your pumpkin is ready for your Halloween celebrations.

Harvest in time for Halloween

Finally, harvest your pumpkin just before Halloween and carve it into a suitably scary face. Grow spooktacular pumpkins in time for Halloween with the seeds Grow My Own - Pumpkin Halloween Heads available from Homebase. PA Photo/thinkstockphotos

NEW MERCEDES MODELS

142

New Mercedes-Benz E-Class Cabriolet and E-Class AllTerrain models are now available along with new versions of the E-Class Coupé, Saloon and Estate. The cabriolet is priced from £44,675. The All-Terrain is available in one version, AllTerrain Edition, from £58,880. The E-Class All-Terrain Estate comes with standard 4MATIC all-wheel-drive, a nine-speed automatic gearbox and one diesel engine, badged E 350 d. This 3.0-litre turbocharged V6 generates 258 hp and 620 Nm and emits 179 g/km, while delivering combined fuel economy of 41.5 mpg. It has a top speed of 155 mph, and accelerates to 60 mph in just 6.2 seconds. Standard kit includes a Burmester surround sound system; Air Body Control air suspension; panoramic electric sunroof; Comand Online with a 12.3-inch infotainment display, memory package, including electrically operated front seats; LED Intelligent Light System; Keyless-Go Comfort package; privacy glass; 20-inch twinspoke alloy wheels; and an electrically folding tow bar with a 13-pin adapter. It has a towing capacity of up to 2,100 kg. The E-Class Cabriolet is a full four-seater, with a multilayer acoustic fabric roof that can be operated at speeds up to 31 mph and opened or closed in 20 seconds.There are four engines available from launch: E 220 d; E 350 d 4MATIC; E 300; and E 400 4MATIC. Two new all-wheel drive models have been added to the E-Class Coupé line-up: the E 220 d 4MATIC and E 350 d 4MATIC, costing £41,820 and £51,415 respectively.

ROAD TEST: SUZUKI SWIFT SHVS Suzuki’s Swift hatchback has been a strong global seller for some years though in the UK has often been an underrated gem in the supermini sector, yet a delight to those who discovered it, writes NICK FLETCHER. With its agile performance, outstanding handling, reliability and ultra-keen pricing, all the Swift lacked was some visual charisma to boost sales – and the new version just in UK showrooms certainly addresses this issue in impressive manner! New Swift is an eye-catcher with its cutaway headlights, enlarged front grille and sporty-looking body styling. It is also 10 per cent lighter, 19 per cent more powerful and 8 per cent more economical than the outgoing version. Available only as a 5-door – but cleverly designed with hidden rear door handles to look like a sporty coupe - the new Swift is priced from £10,999. It comes with a choice of 1.0 litre 3-cylinder Boosterjet turbo petrol engine or 1.2 litre 4-cylinder Dualjet engine and standard kit on all models includes DAB radio, Bluetooth. LED running lights and privacy glass. Up the range, features such as alloy wheels, smartphone links, auto air-con, auto transmission and even all-wheel-drive are added. My test model was a top-trim SZ5 with a 1.0 litre 110 hp Boosterjet engine and 5-speed manual gearbox, priced at

£14,499. Top speed is 118 mph, the 0-60 mph time a nippy 10 seconds. Fuel economy is 56.5 mpg combined. SZ5 kit includes sat-nav, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, rear parking camera, 16-inch alloy wheels, keyless entry and push-button start. This model also featured Suzuki’s SVHS ‘mild hybrid’ system which gives sub-100 g/ km emissions. The system utilises a belt-driven combined generator and starter motor which assists acceleration and stores energy. New Swift has a more spacious interior thanks to slightly lowered seats boosting headroom and a longer wheelbase creating improved rear passenger space. Seating is comfortable and supportive, there is a good driving postion and the dashboard is well designed for easy use. Boot space is 265 litres (up 54 litres on the previous model) and expandable to 579 litres by dropping the rear seats. The Swift is brilliant to drive, nimble, effortless, reassuringly Mini-esque in its outstanding grip and handling and with a comfortable supple ride. Its lower, wider road stance and styling revisions help provide much-needed youthful appeal and its kit levels and ultracompetitive pricing should quickly widen the market for this charismatic hatchback.

RENAULT SCENIC HYBRIDS Renault’s all-new Scénic and Grand Scénic range is now available with a dCi 110 HYBRID ASSIST powertrain, offering 10 per cent lower fuel consumption and reduced emissions - 94g/km. The dCi 110 HYBRID ASSIST engine is available on both Scénic and Grand Scénic, priced from £25,055. The Scénic and Grand Scénic dCi 110 HYBRID ASSIST mark Renault’s first foray into hybrid engine technology. The dCi 110 engine features a 10kW electric motor located under the bonnet that works in combination with the internal combustion engine. Alongside the economical benefits, it also improves pick-up at low speeds providing a boost of acceleration, particularly at low revs (even around 1,000rpm) regardless of the gear. The dCi 110 HYBRID ASSIST versions are priced £1,000 more than the equivalent dCi 110 variants in the Scénic range, although benefit from a reduced first year VED rate of £110 due to its classification as an “alternatively fuelled” vehicle and a reduced standard rate of £130 thereafter.

The Scénic and Grand Scénic dCi 110 HYBRID ASSIST range is available in three trim levels – Dynamique Nav, Dynamique S Nav and Signature Nav. An electronic parking brake, LED daytime running lights, roof rails (Grand Scénic only), automatic dual-zone climate control, automatic headlights and wipers, DAB radio with AUX input with Bluetooth connectivity and a seven-inch touchscreen are fitted to every version.

HONDA HR-V BLACK EDITION

ROAD TEST: NISSAN X-TRAIL N-VISION The SUV market is a crowded place with all the major manufacturers vying for a slice of booming sales but official statistics show that the world’s best-selling SUV is the Nissan X-Trail, writes NICK FLETCHER. Since its launch sales have reached 3.7 million, with 766,000 sold last year alone. And Nissan is determined to keep that top spot because it has just revised and upgraded the X-Trail with a new version is set to enter UK showrooms later this summer. X-Trail is available with five or seven seats, with two or four wheel drive, and with manual or CVT auto gearboxes. There are petrol and diesel engines, so lots of combinations to ensure most buyers can get just what they want. Current versions start at £22,855 though my test model was a flagship N-Vision version which in seven-seat form and optional pearlescent paint was priced at £33,715. It had a 2.0 litre 177 hp diesel unit with 6-speed manual gearbox and 4WD. The 0-60 mph time is 9.4 seconds, top speed 127 mph and fuel consumption 50.4 mpg combined.

The X-Trail has always looked good with eye-catching muscular styling and premium appearance thanks in part to a large and distinctive grille and elegantly sculptured lines. It also scores highly for occupant and luggage space. Five adults can travel in comfort and as the middle row of seats slides, the two third-row seats are more roomy than you might expect, offering decent leg and headroom. The powered tailgate gives access to an large boot with 445 litres of space, expandable to a massive 1,982 litres with all seats folded. Standard equipment on the N-Vision test car included four power windows, auto lights and wipers, dual-zone climate control, cruise control with speed limiter, front and rear parking sensors, Around View Monitor using front side and rear cameras, 7-inch touchscreen infotainment unit with sat-nav, 19-inch alloys wheels, panoramic glass roof and leather seats. On the road, the X-Trail drives well, with assured handing and a comfortable ride. The 2.0 litre diesel engine is smooth and responsive and the Nissan brand has a good reputation for reliability. It all adds up to a very attractive package.

Honda is extending the Black Edition treatment to its HR-V crossover SUV while also launching an additional limited run of the CR-V Black Edition. Upgrades on the standard HR-V SE include black running boards, skid plates front grille and mirror caps, and 18” alloys while inside touches including special edition leather and carpets.The entry level model 1.5 i-VTEC manual comes in at £25,000, an automatic CVT version at £26,210, and the manual diesel at £26,820. The CR-V Black Edition is available in 4WD with a choice of petrol or diesel and manual or automatic, priced at £31,000 for the manual 2.0 i-VTEC, and £34,300 for the automatic 1.6 i-DTEC. Exterior features include black running boards, tailgate spoiler, front grille and skid plates and 19” black alloys. Inside there is full leather interior features contrasting stitching with an embossed Black Edition logo on the front and rear seats, with the door panels and arm rests also finished in black leather. This premium interior is finished off with carpet mats with the Black Edition logo.

AUDI R8 SPYDER V10 PLUS Audi has launched a V10 Plus convertible version of its R8 sports car, with a 0-60mph time of 3.3 seconds and a top speed of 203 mph. The new model is the fastest-ever production Audi convertible and its 5.2 litre V10 engine has 610 hp on tap - 70 hp more than the standard version - and costs £147,470. Standard features include Performance Driving Mode, bucket seats, ceramic brakes and a powered hood which opens or closes in 20 seconds. Features include a cylinder-on-demand system, which deactivates one cylinder bank at low to medium loads, as well as dual injection in the intake manifold and combustion chambers. If the driver eases off the accelerator at a speed of over 34mph, the engine disconnects from the drive and the new R8 Spyder coasts at idle with minimal fuel consumption. When the car comes to a stop, a start-stop system deactivates the V10 engine. This helps give the car a fuel economy figure of 22.6 mpg combined and emissions of 292g/km. Performance is delivered via a seven-speed S tronic transmission with ‘lightning-fast’ action. R8 bucket seats are upholstered in fine Nappa leather with special pigmenting that stops them from heating up in the sun’s rays. Decorative inlays are made from carbon; the pedals and footrest are stainless steel. The defining element is a large arc running around the cockpit. The dashboard appears to float weightlessly. Its lower section contains buttons and controls for the air conditioning, shaped like turbines.

CHEF OUT OF WATER Nathan Outlaw may just be the nicest chef in the business. The Michelin-starred restaurateur and fish expert talks to Ella Walker about his latest book, Home Kitchen Apparently, Nathan Outlaw still can’t quite master the art of roasting a chicken. This is a man who has a two Michelin star restaurant, was mentored by Rick Stein and has written four cookery books. And he can’t roast a chicken?! “It always turns out differently every time,” says the Kent-born, Cornwall-based chef, with a laid-back, selfdeprecating laugh. Don’t be taken in; Outlaw can handle chicken, he just doesn’t do carbon copy, identikit chickens - but when you’re best known for your seafood, who cares? His latest book then, Home Kitchen, is something of a detour. “I wanted to write a book that covered all the bases if you had no other cookery book - a book that had all the recipes you needed for life.” It features some fish, of course, but is also packed with nostalgic classics like toad-in-the-hole, soups, risottos, how to do a proper Sunday roast (yes, chicken included), plus desserts - including his daughter’s sticky toffee pudding - which is to be expected when Outlaw’s last-night-on-earth meal is, without question, trifle. Throughout the writing process, he had his children (Jacob and Jessica) in mind, imagining the kind of cookbook they’ll need when, eventually, they go off to university or college. “If they took this one book,” he says, “there’d be enough in there for them to survive.”

Baked Pollock with a Cheddar & Herb Crust (Serves 4)

It’s a very tasty safety net too, considering that cooking is no longer taught comprehensively in schools. Outlaw, 39, explains he’s “fortunate enough to be old enough to have done cookery lessons at school”, but says it’s disappointing how children tend to get just a term of Food Technology classes each year now, and are rarely taught basic kitchen skills in detail. After honing his filleting skills alongside Gary Rhodes and Stein, at just 25 - an age that doesn’t seem quite so young when you consider he was cooking for paying customers at 14 - Outlaw launched his first restaurant, The Black Pig. Within a year, he was also a first-time dad (to son Jacob) and the recipient of a Michelin star. According to online food publisher Great British Chefs’ recent survey of 5,000 foodies, people are becoming increasingly adventurous when it comes to the foods and ingredients they’re willing to try. Outlaw says he can definitely see that culinary confidence reflected in his restaurants (he’s got four in the UK and one in Dubai). “People are far more educated about food, they seem to want to know more about what’s on the plate,” he explains. “When I started cooking, you had your usual meat and fish, but now people would know what gurnard was, for example, they’re quite happy eating mackerel next to something like turbot or cod. People are much more open.”

“It’s difficult, because I think sometimes people end up at fish counters and supermarket meat counters, and they go with the safe option they know. I do understand that,” says Outlaw. “The excuse I used to get was, ‘I can’t eat any fish because I live in [landlocked] Oxford’, or something like that, in middle England, but now you can get fish on your doorstep at home as quick as I can get it into my restaurant. The more education people get and the more they see different things being cooked, we’ll start to see people eating other species of fish.” But even a seafood virtuoso like Outlaw can be fazed occasionally. “The most bizarre thing I’ve ever eaten is probably these really big frogs in Singapore,” he remembers. “They were alive and they cut them up in front of you and then stir-fried them. It was a bit weird, although tasty - everyone always says it tastes like chicken, haha - but it was a bit odd that it was just plucked out of a little tank, then cut up and chucked into a wok. You didn’t want to think about it too much!” By Ella Walker, Press Association

However, while people are more experimental ordering off a menu, “there’s a lot more work to be done at home”.

Add 150ml of the reserved tomato stock to the bowl. Pour the contents of the bowl into a saucepan over a low heat, whisk continuously until heated through. Allow to gently simmer.

Add the lettuce and samphire to the same pan and cook for one minute. To serve, ladle the warm mayonnaise into the middle of the plate, add the bacon, tomato, and lettuce mixture on top. Finish with the mackerel and small drizzle of olive oil. Sprinkle the torn basil leaves and serve.

Meanwhile, place a frying pan over a medium-high heat and add a dash of oil. Once the pan is scorching hot, add the bacon and fry until crisp, remove from pan. Add the mackerel fillets, skin-side down, add the bacon back to pan and cook for one minute. 145

PA Photo/David Loftus

Ingredients

Method

8 whole sardines 2tbsp of olive oil Salt and pepper

For the pickled vegetables, thinly slice the shallots, carrots and red pepper (discarding the core and seeds).

Rub the sardines all over with the olive oil and season with salt and black pepper.

Combine the vinegar, white wine and sugar in a bowl, add 150ml of water and stir until the sugar has dissolved. Add the vegetables, mix well and set aside to marinate for one hour at least.

Cook the sardines for one minute on each side, or until browned, then transfer to a rack in the oven for a further four to five minutes, until cooked through.

To make the mayonnaise, whisk together the egg yolks, two teaspoons of the lemon juice and some salt and freshly ground black pepper in a bowl until smooth and creamy.

Alternatively, you could cook the sardines on the barbecue before finishing in the oven.

For the mayonnaise: 2 egg yolks 1/2 lemon, juiced 200ml of olive oil 1 handful of French parsely (or flat leaf), finely chopped 1 handful of chives, finely chopped 1 handful of parsley, finely chopped 1tsp smoked paprika Salt and pepper For the pickled vegetables: 300g of shallots 300g of carrots 300g of red pepper 150ml of white wine vinegar 150ml of white wine 150g of sugar 150ml water 146

Add about two teaspoons of the oil and whisk vigorously to incorporate. Continue adding the oil very slowly in a thin stream, whisking continuously, until all the oil has been incorporated. Stir in the herbs and paprika to taste and set aside. To cook the sardines, preheat the oven to 200C/gas mark 6, and heat a chargrill pan until very hot.

Place two sardines on each serving plate. Drain the pickled vegetables and pile them on the plates next to the sardines. Finish with a dollop of smoked paprika mayonnaise and serve.


HEALTH & BEAUTY

CHRISTCHURCH HARBOUR SPA …Aaaaaaand relax! The spa day: man’s answer to commonplace stress. Frequented by all, the spa day knows no gender, no age and no bounds. So, in a fortuitous series of events I coaxed my grandmother, ‘Lady West’, into joining me for a day of relaxation at the Christchurch Harbour Spa. Located in the depths of the Christchurch Harbour Hotel, this award-winning spa boasts state of the art facilities, lavish treatment rooms, breathtaking views and some of the friendliest staff I have ever met. We arrived late morning one Tuesday. Having already broken into the working week and still suffering from the week before, this was surely needed – it’s not all food and giggles this job you know. We were greeted by a friendly face at the reception desk and shown to our dressing rooms. With our towelling robes and hotels slippers in tow, off we went to explore. Hidden behind a smoky glass sliding door is their main spa area. As the door glided open it revealed an atmospherically lit swimming pool, complete with colour changing spotlights. We began to feel the stress wash away as we floated to the first room. We stood in front of the unusually named ‘Salt Room’, looking at each other in the hopes to glean some idea of what was ahead. We sat ourselves inside, and the pushes the button as instructed – whoosh; salt enriched mist dispersed into the air. Having later researched at home, I now know that the salt air is fantastic for several common (and less so common) human inflictions; including acne, poor breathing and general detoxification of the skin and respiratory system. We exited the salt chamber feeling calm. I caught a glimpse of a white light coming from the back

corner. Behind the door was a light-flooded corridor with a winding wooden staircase, a vast contrast to the shadowy spa. Our curiosities lead us to an all white cladded room that overlooked the picturesque harbour. With the doors slightly ajar a pleasant coastal breeze blew around the room. As we sat and sipped on our lemon infused water, I wondered, “Does it get much better than this?”. The clock chimed 12 and off we went for our midspa luncheon in their renowned ‘Upper Deck’ restaurant. Included in our spa package was a two-course feast, chosen from their seasonal setmenu. We decided to skip starters and head straight for the mains, I the classic ‘Fish & Chips’ and my grandmother a traditional ‘Fish Pie’. The batter on my fish was incredible, light, crispy – flawless. A particular favourite of mine was the homemade tartar sauce. It was un-stereotypically complex and made the entire dish. Lady West also commented on how lovely her dish was, commenting particularly on the quantity and quality of the fish. We paused between courses and looked out at yet another incredible view. We watched as the local gulls swooped by dancing over the landscape, but our attention was quickly diverted when the desserts arrived. I had opted for the ‘Chocolate Brownie’ and it was everything you want a brownie to be: moist, gooey and rich – most certainly in my top five deserts. I must also comment on the excellence of our server. I didn’t catch her name, but she was utterly fantastic – attentive, friendly and professional. We rolled ourselves back to the spa, a-glow with post feast fullness. A quick change back into our swimsuits and it was time for our treatments. The smell of sweet incense filled the air, as we were lead down the corridor to their double treatment room.

Our individual therapists consulted us as we sat back and got comfortable. The process began with an aroma test, where I was presented with two scented cotton pads, whichever smell I preferred determined some of the products used, making for quite a sensory experience. The lights were dimmed and tranquil music tinkled in the background as the girls begun the treatment. I must say I have never had such a thorough facial. In my dazed state I couldn’t keep count, but as sure as one product was wiped away another would replace it, all of which felt incredible on the skin. Whilst the ‘ESPA Intensive Face Mask’ was setting, my therapist went about a shoulder, neck and head massage. Some massages are good, but then there are those that succeed your expectations and this was the latter. It was obvious I was in skilled hands as my therapist paid great care and attention to each individual knot. I was in a state of euphoria, so relaxed that I actually drifted off into the land of nod for a little while. What an amazing treatment; all the benefits of a professional facial with the bonus of a tension eradicating massage too. It was the perfect day. It’s rare to find a spa that combines top quality therapists, and great facilities all in a picturesque setting. I thoroughly recommend the Christchurch Harbour for girls day, couples retreats, me days and well, just about anyone in need of a little rest and recuperation.

STAYCATION

PARADISE AT HOME In an effort to seek some R&R, I sat down with my significant other to discuss the possibility of a holiday. Like most, we have put in the graft, working day and night to pay for all of life’s little joys; the mortgage, bills, my princess of a dog’s specific dietary needs…we, like many, were in need of a break. So one night we sat together and explored website after website, each suggesting ideas and quickly dismissing them. Arguments breaking out over flight durations, destinations and how this whole holiday finding process was actually a reflection of a deep routed inability to commit (sorry, it got personal). The point is, sometimes booking a relaxing escape abroad is one of the most stressful experiences. Then it occurred to me, why am I so desperate to escape a part of the world that tons of holidaymakers would die to visit? Our neighbouring county Cornwall is widely regarding as one of the most beautiful parts of the country, offering breathtaking views, art, renowned

culinary haunts and some of the world’s most beautiful beaches – light bulb alert. It hit me, why don’t we swap our vacay, for a staycay? So, we decided to turn to the awesome team at ‘Beachspoke’ – luxury holiday home specialists – who helped us snag a stunning rental, located in the charming Cornish village of ‘Mousehole’. We arrived in Cornwall, a pinch weary from our 4-hour car journey, which by all standards was far more pleasurable (and scenic) than the less than alluring sight of the M3 on route to Gatwick. After a quick pit stop in Penzanse, where we stocked up on all the essentials – aka pasties, clotted cream and cider – we headed for our crashpad in Mousehole. After a blazing trail through winding country roads and narrow village streets we had arrived. We pulled up in the world’s most scenic car park, adjacent to the twinkling waterfront and headed towards the ‘Harbour Moon’ cottage.

Prior to our visit Olivia (our staycation guru/Beachspoke tour guide) had given us the code to a tiny security box that would unlock the key to the door. We guided the key into the lock and pushed open the door – deep breath – and WOW.

I stepped down into the kitchen come sitting room. Every inch of the space was adorned with style. The matte marble-esque worktops with chrome trimmings, the exposed stonewall, the driftwood sculptures; everything was gorgeous. Our exploration was heightened as we climbed the nautical rope-aided stairwell, only to discover the stunning boudoir above. We crept in, taking in every nook and cranny. To the left, bronze-flecked tiles flowed seemly from floor to wall, creating a contemporary wet-room, complete with walk in shower and a copper basin. White fluffy robes hung up tied with a bow, set the tone for what was to be a truly lavish layover. We continued into the room our excitement growing. A grand bed took pride and place centralised in the latter part of the room, it’s headboard the divide between bathroom and bedroom. I looked up to discover fishing nets woven between the


STAYCATION

Another day of adventure concluded and we began our usual holiday ritual of changing for the evening affair. Tonight we decided to visit the famous ‘2 Fore Street’. Owner and operator Joe (who actually took our booking that morning) served some of the best food I have ever had. The quality, flavour and evident passion spoke through the food and the service from their fantastic team heightening an already incredible experience. We returned to our pad for the last time. In an effort to savour as much of this wonderful property as we could, we perched in the living room enjoying the fresh scones and raspberry conserve we had picked up earlier that day. As our eyes grew heavy we decided to tuck ourselves into our opulent marshmallow bed once more. What a trip. Beachspoke have opened my eyes to a new kind of travel accommodation and a truly luxurious experience, all only hours away. Our property, ‘Harbour Moon’, is one of eight luxury properties in and around Cornwall, Devon and Cotswold that Beachspoke manage.

white beams with a large copper pendant light suspended over the divan. A beam of light crept over the bed, inviting us to the furthest part of the room. I went to open the curtains before being distracted by the glass floor below me that looked out onto the living space below. The natural light coming from the open window below reminded me of the magnificence of seaside living. Finally I crept towards the rustic café-style shutters and pulled them apart, revealing the picturesque harbour view that had been hiding behind it. It was breathtaking. Excited to explore the town we threw on some fresh clothes and hit up the local haunts. Based on the recommendations in our Harbour Moon guidebook, we decided to pay a visit to the ‘Old Coastguard’, a popular restaurant on the cliff top overlooking the sea. To get to the restaurant, we strolled along the rockery and climbed a stone stairwell that disclosed a beautiful garden. We crept in through the double doors and snagged a table. The meal was delicious, complete with local gins and fresh seafood. Feeling full and fully inebriated we

made our way back to the cottage to enjoy our first night in that enormous bed – lights out. We awoke in the sun-filled room ready for a day of exploration, though the feeling of duck-feather pillows and a sumptuous mattress made it hard to actually leave. Adam – my partner whom I mentioned in the beginning – true to his heroic nature, gathered breakfast supplies (from the quaint local post office I might add). I tore myself away from bed and headed to the first place anyone on holiday goes: the fridge. I opened the door only to reveal a bottle of sparkling English wine, a half pint of milk and some eggs. What a lovely touch. I was at a beverage related crossroads; I had planned to assemble a coffee from the very lovely looking Nepresso machine, but now I had discovered the sparkling wine? Like anyone else in my position I weighed up the options and decided that having both was the only way forward. Gathering my drinks I headed for the bathroom. A sip, disrobe and another sip later, I was enjoying the marvellous sensation of a rainfall shower. I thought; if this is how the other half live, I want to trade sides.

ASK THE EXPERT...

TRY SALT THERAPY FOR HEALTHY SKIN AND MORE… The particles of dry salt that settle on skin during a salt therapy session have numerous benefits – therapeutic and cosmetic. Salt therapy gently and effectively boosts exfoliation, removing dull, dead skin cells and debris from the surface. This can help clear impacted follicles and prevent acne formation. It also helps normalise the skin’s pH-balance and fortify the skin’s protective barrier. Dry salt aerosol has anti-bacterial properties, yet its gentle action does not compromise the skin’s normal microflora. It’s also an antiinflammatory, reducing redness and swelling, which make it beneficial in treating certain skin conditions, such as acne (you can combine with microdermabrasion and blue light therapy for faster results), eczema and psoriasis. It provides long-lasting relief from redness, irritation and skin rashes, helping to significantly reduce discomfort associated with lesions, scales and inflamed tissue. Salt therapy contributes to post-surgery recovery, helping repair and promote healthy tissue regeneration and the prevention of scar tissue. It also helps prevent secondary infections by restoring the skin’s natural defensive properties, nourishing and revitalising the skin’s delicate tissues. Salt therapy boosts skin microcirculation, facilitating deeper penetration of therapeutic skin care serums, lotions and creams, and it facilitates the elimination of toxins. It works synergistically with skin care treatments and helps maximise results. Moreover, its antioxidant properties help fight free radicals – for a powerful anti-aging effect. The end result is skin with a natural, healthy glow. Clients who arrive in our salt room to address skin conditions are also very likely to experience an improvement in general health and wellbeing, with improved immunity and reduced hypersensitivity to the common allergens and other irritants that can trigger skin disorders. Skin conditions are often exacerbated by stress and when clients take in the benefits of Salt Therapy in the peaceful atmosphere of a welldesigned salt room, they are likely to experience a much greater sense of calm and wellbeing. Dorset Salt Therapy provides new services in their unique salt room, including: breath exercises, meditation, full body massage and more with Oliver James (practitioner) who over the last 12 years, has experienced 100 different breathing techniques as part of his training in Pilates, Body Led Psychotherapy and Healing. Remember: the FIRST SESSION is always FREE in our Salt Room!

HOW TO CURRY FAVOUR AT MEALTIMES Dan Toombs likes curry. A lot. That’s why he’s called The Curry Guy. Here, he shares his passion and talks about his debut cookbook. Californian Dan Toombs’ introduction to British curry houses didn’t come until he was 22, when he worked in a pub in Croydon while on a student visa. A few trips to the local establishment and he was hooked. “I’d never tried Indian food because it just wasn’t available over there at that time - it is now - and I loved it,” says the enthusiast, who now lives in North Yorkshire. “I’ve been trying to make it ever since.” On his return to the United States, he scoured his home state for Indian food but his searches came up short. So, when he made a permanent move to the UK in 1993, the studious hunt for the perfect curry resumed - with Toombs meeting local chefs to find

out their secrets, setting up his blog The Curry Guy and later starting his year-long curry challenge. And his debut cookbook, The Curry Guy, in which he pools his knowledge from years of diligent curryeating, and his quest, which he, his wife and three children took part in, brought the diversity of the cuisine into sharp focus. Dan Toombs (Photo credit: PA Photo/Quadrille)

The variety of the cuisine put the family’s taste buds to the test and Toombs is convinced their success shows there’s a curry for everybody. “One thing I say is that these recipes are the way I make them at home, but there’s no reason why you can’t do them however you want them. Sauces all have different heat levels. Madras is going to be hotter than a tikka masala sauce, but don’t not eat madras just because you don’t love spicy food - just don’t

put as much chilli in it. It’s really easy to heat up a curry - all you have to do is add chillies. But once it’s too spicy, it’s really hard to cool it down, so just be sensible with your cooking and you’ll be fine.” By Ella Walker, Press Association Feeling inspired?

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

ISABEL’S

Lunch in little Paris There is a special kind of aura surrounding French cuisine. It’s classic – no, it’s more than that – it’s, ‘iconic’. It represents the early development of haute cuisine and is considered as the backbone of Western cookery. French food introduced many of the most elaborate, nee legendary, cooking techniques that we use today. For chefs, it is the one cuisine feared by many, yet loved by all. There is a level of respect that comes with French food and no-where locally is that more prevalent than at Isabel’s. We had been invited to sample their brand-new lunch menu, a first for the independent restaurant, having previously been known for only opening a select few nights a week. Well, after high-demand from regulars, they are now open for lunch Thursday to Saturday and Sunday’s for their signature roasts. So, in an on-going effort to provide our readers with reviews of the best local haunts, off we went. We arrived at Isabel’s on a pleasantly sunny day. As we filed through the front door, we looked out over the cozy Parisian dining room. Velvet-lined booths and cherry-oak tables made for great little hideaways within the alcoves of the room. The back-bar was a floor to ceiling mantelpiece, packed with wine-filled cubbyholes and a single vintage desk-lamp lighting each trove. Rich red carpets lead the way to the front desk (just in-front of the bar), where a friendly face was waiting to greet us. Seeing as the weather had taken a fortuitous turn for the better, we sought a table outside in their secluded garden. It was lovely. A gentle breeze blew,

bringing the smell of freshly cut grass and flora with it. As it was a special occasion (we’d all made it to through the working week only merely perturbed by office life) we made the unanimous decision that a drink was unquestionably in order. Among our choices were gorgeous ciders, wine, beer and one “mocktail” courtesy of our newbie Matt (he’ll learn soon). Cider fans take note; their French cider is a must, so be sure to ask for the “Cidre Bouché’s Le Clos Fleuri”. Isabel’s staff are a shining example of great service; with knowledge of the menu along with personal recommendations and the answering of all our questions, their team made for an extra special experience.

that lifted and indulged the palate all at once. The wild but wonderful combination of grilled halloumi, grapes, figs, pine nuts and capers set off awaked new and excited realms of my palate. The dish reeked of confidence and pride in the fabulous produce. What French dining experience would be complete without the ‘Fruit De La Mere’? Crab, prawns, smoked salmon, oysters, mussels, crevette, marinated squid and green-lipped mussels, complete with a side of handmade turmeric mayonnaise. Served in a less opulent fashion to its ordinary ice-bowl presentation, Isabel’s platter allows you to focus on the fish itself, all of which was fresh and full of refined flavour.

Their summer lunch menu or ‘Menu De Déjeuner Jardin’, as they say, is a compact list of only nine dishes (and three desserts). Most dishes are available as either and entree or a main, a fantastic testament to qualitative, simple food. Among our choices was ‘Moules Mariniere’, ‘Salade Á La Grecque’ and a definitive French classic, the ‘Fruit De La Mere’ platter.

For dessert, I decided that the only way to confirm my love for Isabel’s was in trying their chocolate brownie. They say diamonds are a girl’s best friend – but whoever said that probably had more money than sense – in reality her only trusted confidante is chocolate, especially in the form of a brownie and this one didn’t disappoint. It was moreishly gooey, rich in chocolate flavour and paired with the sweetest Morello cherries.

The ‘Moules Mariniere’ was gorgeous, modest and delicious. Tender mussels, cooked in a beautiful garlic-rich creamy white wine sauce, paired with some simple salted French fries and plenty of sauce soaking bread. All the right ingredients in one place: my stomach.

It’s safe to say that we thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Isabel’s and we can’t recommend their lunch menu enough. Be sure to book in advance, as we anticipate this hot-spot filling up over the summer. By Charlotte Williams

Vicky had opted for the aforementioned salad, which she kindly shared with me, despite our shared ‘no food sharing’ policy. I remember her saying how incredible to dressing was; a honey mint dressing

Rejuvenate your skin with Fractional Laser Therapy at Clinic Visjeune IMPROVES SKIN TONE AND TEXTURE • REDUCES WRINKLES

SPECIAL OFFER: Quote HOUSE for

Fractional Laser Therapy*

FRACTIONAL LASER THERAPY works by targeting damaged skin with microscopic laser columns that penetrate deep into the skin. It treats only a fraction of the skin at a time leaving the surrounding tissue untouched. This promotes rapid healing and stimulated the body’s own natural healing process to replace old damaged cells with fresh glowing health skin.

HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE NEEDED? Desired outcomes are typically reached in multiple treatments but we usually recommend a minimum of three. The specific number of treatments is tailored to your goals and desired results as well as your lifestyle. We will work with you to identify the appropriate level of treatment and your preferred downtime.

WHAT ARE THE RESULTS? • Improved tone and texture • Reduced wrinkles and pore size • Treatment of unwanted brown spots • Improved appearance of acne scars and surgical scars • Excellent treatment useful for any part of body

WHAT SHOULD BE EXPECTED AFTER TREATMENT? Immediately after the treatment your skin will be red similar to a minor sunburn. This may last a few days and depending on the level and type of the treatment, you may also experience some swelling and or flaking of the skin. If pigmentation is present on the skin, this may darken soon after treatment and last a few days until it gently flakes away revealing fresher, glowing and smoother looking and feeling skin.

WHEN DO THE RESULTS APPEAR AND HOW LONG DO THEY LAST? The results are both immediate and progressive. Soon after the treatment, the surface of the skin will feel softer and smoother, look brighter and show a more even tone.

26TH - 29TH JULY ‘MADE IN DAGENHAM’ - THE MUSICAL, AT THE REGENT CENTRE, CHRISTCHURCH

18TH NOVEMBER STEP INTO A MAGICAL WONDERLAND FOR CHARITY’S GALA BALL

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).

Diverse Abilities is bringing Narnia to life at its third gala ball, being held on Saturday 18 November, and the disability charity is inviting the local community to join them and step into a magical wonderland. Gala ball guests will be treated to a drinks reception from 6pm before sitting down to a three-course gourmet meal, wine and entertainment from a local band and DJ, which will keep everyone dancing until late. The magical winter wonderland themed event, kindly sponsored by Franses Jewellers of Bournemouth, also includes other surprise entertainment and the opportunity to win great prizes throughout the night. Tickets for the gala ball are £80 per person or £750 for a table of 10. To find out more or book online visit www. diverseabilities.org.uk/galaball or call 01202 718266. As well as the annual Gala Ball, Diverse Abilities hosts an array of different events all year round to support the families of those with disabilities including a rugby lunch, golf event, running and cycling challenges and much more, providing everyone from all walks of life the opportunity to do something fun and exciting while raising funds for a good cause.

Hailed by critics as ‘nothing short of spine-tingling’ with ‘an outstandingly strong cast’, Wonderland is an enchanting musical adaptation of Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass, with a huge heart, a medley of magic and a whole lot of wonder. It is a timely and touching story of love and an adventurous exploration of who we are, who we want to be and the power of everyday magic in our lives. The stellar cast includes TV and West End star Wendi Peters, much loved for her acclaimed portrayal of Cilla Battersby-Brown in Coronation Street, as Queen of Hearts and musical theatre legend Dave Willetts, best known for playing title roles in The Phantom of the Opera and Les Misérables, as White Rabbit. Leading lady Kerry Ellis, who has previously played lead roles in Wicked, We Will Rock You, Cats, Oliver! andMiss Saigon will guest star as Alice.

REVIEWED

THEATRE REVIEW

OPENING NIGHT AT ‘PRISCILLA QUEEN OF THE DESERT’ In a word – fabulous! Priscilla is an awe-inspiring spectacle packed with disco fever, glamour and a roller coaster of emotions.

it was without the countless incredible costumes, wigs and make-up, oh and the phenomenal set.

Having not seen the film, I entered the theatre with only a vague idea of what was in store. My mind was open for captivation and captivated it was.

that would seriously undermine the work of an inclusively amazing cast, but I might go as far as to say that I had a little soft spot for Bernadette (can I say that?), who was played by Bryan Newman. Newman’s character portrayal of a sophisticated, transgender women, was so full of wit and moreish arrogant charm that I wanted to run on stage and become best friends.

The curtain rose as three divas floated down from the rafters, belting a heart-pounding rendition of “It’s Raining Men”, with sequin-studded sensation ‘Miss Understanding’ (played by Ali Davis) joining them on-stage with a mash-up of Tina Turner. The first act flowed seamlessly from song to song and the integration of pop songs into the main storyline was flawless.

The team continues their journey across the Australian desert in the second half, where we meet lovable Bob (John Gerken) and his to quote, “mail-order bride”, Cynthia (Kirstie Rodgers). I can’t forget to mention Rodgers’ incredible performance of “Pop Musik” in a perfect, broken accent – I was in stitches and her dancing was incredible throughout.

Helen Barrington (Director), Carly Simmerling (Choreographer) and Ian Peter (Musical Director) are clearly a forced to be reckoned with on the am-dram scene. The simple yet effective choreography, paired with excellent delivery of lines and a foot-tapping soundtrack are evidence of their and the cast’s talent.

Some particular highlights from the first half included Felica’s (played by Sam Compton) rendition of “Venus” – never has a band of discoangels looked or sounded so good! Which brings me onto the ensemble, who made every scene a whirlwind of high-energy and harmonious vocals and never was that more true than in the cast’s performance of “Don’t Leave Me This Way”, where we meet the glamorous ‘Bernadette’ for the very first time. I can’t pick a favourite because

We get to see a whole new side of the story in act two, where you get a little glimpse into the reality of transgender life. Love, bullying and family are all themes covered so beautifully by our three main characters – especially by lead character Tick (aka Lea Martin), with his tear-jerking cover of Elvis’ “Always On My Mind”. It’s hard to believe I haven’t mentioned it sooner, but this show wouldn’t be the amazing spectacle

Our show ended with one of the most bedazzling bow sequences I have ever seen, with more sequins, more lights and more flamboyant costumes than ever. The finale stirred the audience into a standing ovation, which was well deserved.

Thank you Bournemouth and Boscombe Light Opera Company for an incredible evening and break a leg for the remaining shows!
