LOCAL ARTIST PAINTS THE LAST FLIGHT Local Artist Jacqui Sieger and a member of the Fine Art trade Guild, was inspired to paint the Last Flight of the Bomber as it flew unexpectly over Sandbanks late one afternoon after the Shoreham Air Crash. Unable to fly over Shoreham Air Show, the Vulcan Pilot decided to fly out over Poole Bay and over towards Swanage. The sky was just turning red with the sunset and the reflection on Poole bay was amazing. It took her nearly two months to finish as she paint in thin layers of Oil, obtaining a 3d effect on my work. Also Jacqui had never painted a Bomber before! There are a hundred Limited Edition Prints available starting at £450.00 to £850.00 depending on sizes you require. The Original painting is for sale but you will need a large wall space as it is 5ft x 4ft. For more information on Jacqui’s art contact her on 01202 463681.

A group of dare devil ladies from Dorset with a combined age of 235 years are hoping to become the oldest all female team to complete the challenge of swimming the 36-mile Strait of Gibraltar. The team of four, who have nicknamed themselves the “Strait Ladies”, will each make solo swims from Tarifa in Spain across to Morocco between 17 and 28 September. One of the intrepid ladies is Lytchett Matravers based Elizabeth Verth who in completing the challenge will be raising money for Lewis-Manning Hospice in Poole - a charity close to her heart after they cared for her late mother who passed away recently. “My swim will be in memory of my dear Mum who died in June of this year. I will be honest and say that, while my Mum was so ill, and following her death, I lost my drive and momentum and was in no fit state to train properly for some weeks. However, I am now back in the swim and determined to complete this successfully for my Mum, who was

always interested in all the swims I’ve done but, nevertheless, thought I was completely mad!” “Although my swim cannot bring my Mum back, I hope that the funds raised will go some way to helping other people who, at the end of their lives, need specialist end of life care, allowing them to live the remainder of their lives with dignity, and to pass away peacefully.” Supporting Elizabeth with her fundraising is Bournemouth home improvements company Swain & Rands who recently completed extensive work on her property having installed twenty two new windows and seven French doors using the coveted high-end R9 window system. Darren Rands, Director of Swain & Rands, was pleased to offer Elizabeth sponsorship, “When I heard what Elizabeth and her friends were planning to do, I was very impressed and only too happy to support her fundraising. We all wish her and her fellow team members the best of luck in completing their

3 RICHMOND HILL - ONE OF BOURNEMOUTH’S LONG-ESTABLISHED DRINKING LOCATIONS Number 3 Richmond Hill Bournemouth has seen many changes over the years, starting out as an illicit drinking establishment, a mysterious hotel, an office development, and it has also been the home of other bars and clubs such as Lola Lo and Kukui in recent years. According to one of the oldest books in Bournemouth records held at the Bournemouth library it was an illegal drinking institution, which was no more than a hole dug into the hillside and a tin door to keep it secure. Then in the late Victorian period, a gothic styled building called ‘The Central Hotel’ which was sadly destroyed 23rd May 1943 by a war time bomb. In 1956 the site was knocked down and a an office development emerged called Brystone House and it has since been renamed Bristol West House and occupies a late Art Deco/Modernist gem in the beautiful townscape of central Bournemouth. Be At One – a national cocktail brand, will be continuing the buildings primary reputation as a sought after drinking destination, bringing a new fun and quirky vibe to the town – but completely legal! The new bar will be open from the 17th August 2017. For more information visit http://www.beatone.co.uk/ cocktail-bar/bournemouth

THE ORGINAL BED WAREHOUSE

FLEUR-DE-LIS The No.1 retirement development in Wareham is now 60% sold, but there are many beautiful one and two bedroom apartments still available. Please call 01929 554557 to book a tour. Alternatively, you can request a brochure to be sent to you in the post. The development is open seven days a week.

Finding the perfect bed is no mean feat. As we slowly roll into the colder months – where snuggling is a popular pastime – we thought we’d get our research started early, which is why we searched high and low for the area’s leading experts. House is so excited to welcome ‘The Original Bed Warehouse’ into the magazine! We were blown away by their extensive range at their showroom in Poole and we think you will be too. Don’t miss their kick-off editorial on pages 138 and 139. Find out more about their hand-woven mattresses and unique customization service – allowing you to create your dream bed.

NUMBER 9 WIMBORNE - CONSOLIDATING OUR 3 BUSINESS LOCATIONS BUT NOT OUR OFFERING! After six years of successful trading, in its current location, Number 9 are consolidating their businesses in Cook Row, opposite Wimborne Minster and they will be open from Wednesday to Saturday in the evenings, offering a brand new exciting menu which promises to include timeless favourites and newly inspired dishes too. Number 9 Restaurant has been owned and run by husband and wife team, Linda and Roy Tazzyman for several years. The husband and wife team also own and operate Number 9 on the Green Café and the Number 9 on the Green Bakery at Quarterjacks both based on Cook Row, Minster Green, Wimborne. The building in West Borough was purchased back in 2010, when they converted what used to be ‘The Olde Tuck Shop’ and after a total refurbishment and major investment they opened Number 9 Restaurant in 2011.

Linda and Roy Tazzyman state, “We own and operate several businesses in the town and we live and work here. We pride ourselves on being an integral part of the local community, we employ over 30 local staff on a full time and part time basis across the businesses, and just like every business owner we look at what makes sense for our business, and at this time, the consolidation of moving the businesses into the same location makes sense for us. For years we have worked alongside other business owners and managers to ensure Wimborne became a sought-after destination and we will continue to do so.” For any further information regarding Number 9 and Mr and Mrs Tazzyman please contact Jackie Phillipson at ROUTEpr jackie@routepr.agency T 01202 896698.

The 21 one and two bedroom apartments, which are known as Fleur-de-Lis, have been built on the site of the former council car park between Pound Lane and West Street. The site is located only a short walk from the historic town centre. The building has been carefully designed to look like a row of terraced houses in keeping with local architecture. The luxurious properties provide an exceptional standard of independent living for those considering downsizing from a larger family home. Apartments have been impeccably finished with contemporary interiors, whilst owners will also have access to a sumptuous drawing room, craft room and guest suite, which will be available to visiting friends and relatives. The kitchens boast builtin Neff appliances and the bathrooms Villeroy & Boch bathroom ceramics.

Due to demand, they went onto develop and restore the detached listed building with the local council, into an awardwinning boutique bed and breakfast offering 3 rooms and this ran successfully alongside the multi-award winning two AA rosette restaurant.

HOME IMPROVEMENTS

A CHAT WITH KITCHEN HOUSE...

KITCHENS ON TREND

If home is where the heart is, the heart is where the kitchen is More and more people are transforming their homes into all-encompassing entertainment zones – gorgeous open-plan spaces perfect for get-togethers. With the single biggest family gettogether on the horizon (Christmas) it’s time to get serious about remodelling the heart of the home. We spoke with design-expert ‘Gary Keene’, to find out what’s hot in kitchens.

The Old and The New The mixing of textures and materials is prevalent throughout contemporary homes now. Tired of a uniformed approach, people are looking to embrace the new whilst still paying homage to more traditional, characterful design. Picture handpainted cabinets, mixed with highly polished stone, a rustic lumber breakfast bar, made complete with chrome fixtures and modern amenities… it’s about creating interest. Whilst kitchens are primarily a functional space, there’s no need for them to look so and with the advanced guard technology that is on the market, there’s no need to play it safe – the only limit is the imagination of your designer, and at Kitchen House that isn’t a problem.

To the Surface For the last fifteen years granite has become the goto for modern worktops, but like all trends, change is coming. The latest surface obsession is ‘Quartz’; granite’s arguably superior sibling. Quartz comes in an incredibly broad range of colours (including large scale, single colour slabs for islands) patterns and effects, making application easier and the options practically limitless. In terms of style Kitchen House advocates dense, solid stone and the thicker the depth the better, for an opulent look. “The highlypolished finish will really offset competing matte finishes, so don’t be afraid of mixing it up”, says Gary. Quartz, unlike granite, is non-porous. Where the daily dirt, grime and water can’t penetrate the stone, you can rely on it’s durability and minimal to no upkeep.

Accent Wood

Put The Cool In Cool

Gone are the all-oak kitchens, in-fact gone are most of the all-wood sculleries. Wood is very much an accent material now, rather than a dominant, but it definitely still has its place in the modern kitchen. Wood has a beautiful organic look, particularly the un-polished ‘shabby-chic’ styles. A lot of modern design can be quite cold and insensitive, but by incorporate sporadic elements of wood, you lift the overall feel, creating a more characterful and attention-grabbing look. Driftwood and olive wood are two beautiful examples of this.

Refrigeration is the new status symbol. We’ve always been inspired by those iconic double door units, complete with water filtration and all the bells and whistles, but now this is much more than inspiration and rather more an abnormal game of ‘how big is your fridge’. “There’s almost no way these fridges could be filled by a domestic home, but people love them”, says Gary. The latest lines even have cameras fitted, so you can see exactly what is in stock the next time you go food-shopping – what a time to be alive!

Tucked Away

Meet The Experts

When it comes to layout, you’ll rarely, if ever, see a stand-alone unit. Everything (including appliances) is tucked away. The idea is to craft a sleek, seamless look – creating or enhancing the grandeur of a space. Why we’re all labouring under the false pretence that we don’t actually have any possessions, we’ll never know, but there’s no denying that it is a running theme. Even handles are subject to the boot, with more and more ‘push to open’ doors coming in, furthering the uninterrupted streamline design. Designers have to be incredibly clever with storage too, utilising every nook and cranny as potential stowage.

As the ‘designers and suppliers of the WOW factor’, Kitchen House are one of the leading kitchen specialists in the South. With an incredibly broad portfolio, Kitchen House handles everything from fixed-budget, to large-scale designer kitchens and with over 30 years experience you can rely on their skilful hands and impeccable reputation. As an independent business Kitchen House offer flexibility and diligence well beyond the high-street chains, leaving you with a quality kitchen unlike any other. Find Gary and his talented team at their stunning showroom on ‘Castle Lane’, just beyond the ‘Castle Point’ shopping centre.

Automation We are a nation of the now, which is why automation is becoming more and more prevalent in most aspects of interior design – especially within kitchens. Appliance manufactures are focusing their efforts on computerising their products, so that you can operate your kitchen at the swipe of a phone or tablet. Kitchen House is currently stocking automated coffee machines (and ovens), complete with built in WIFI, so you can ask your guests without leaving the dining table. Using the 3D graphics on the iPad they can choose exactly how they would like their coffee, walk to the machine and it will be there. It’s a little something known as ‘Home Connect’. “Refrigeration is the new status symbol”

Thinking of buying property for use as an ‘Airbnb’ Holiday let? Make sure you check the lease beforehand! The demand for short term lets, days and weeks rather than months, is on the rise thanks to the success of websites such as Airbnb, whose services provide an online platform to allow individuals to rent out their homes, rooms or apartments to visitors at short notice and for only a few days at a time. As a result, we have seen an increase in clients wanting to purchase additional property for the sole purpose of short term lettings.

The lease should be carefully checked by your Solicitor before further costs of a purchase transaction are incurred or a dispute with neighbours or freeholders arises. If you are looking to purchase a leasehold property that you may wish to let out in the future or would like us to review the clauses in a lease that you already own please contact:

If you are thinking of purchasing or using your existing leasehold property for this purpose, it is important to check the terms of the lease. Often, leases will clearly state that any short term renting or holiday letting is not allowed, however often the lease may be ambiguous on this subject. The rise of short term lettings has resulted in the Courts presiding over a number of recent disputes where the wording of the lease is ambiguous and in a recent case it was decided that the owner had breached the lease by letting his property out on a short term let. The Court made it clear that the decision was reached on the particular wording of the particular clause of the lease. Most leases have subtle differences in their terms and so you should be particularly cautious when purchasing or using a leasehold property for the purpose of short term holiday letting.

TALKING BUSINESS

LOSSES REVISITED AND PENSION FREEDOMS IN ACTION It’s been a few years since the major changes in tax rules for furnished holiday lets which removed some of the best tax benefits including the ability to offset losses against other income and get a refund. This was a fabulous benefit for higher rate taxpayers, particularly those on PAYE with very little opportunity for tax mitigation. Nowadays losses can only be used against the same business, not even buy to let profit you might have which means that even if you have no mortgage you are not likely to generate enough profit to use up the losses incurred by any major renovations or in fitting and furnishing a new property. Of course many of our owners have mortgages which mean that they don’t make much of a profit or even lose money every year before any major expenditure so they are generating losses which can’t be used. This has not been affected by recent changes as the new rules restricting mortgage interest tax relief do not apply to holiday lets. These losses are not lost however! They are carried forward to the next year and continue accumulating forever until you make a profit on the property. Not much help you might think but actually at some point in the future this could allow you to earn tax free income from the property. Let’s imagine you bought a property for £400k with a £200k mortgage and spent £60k on renovations and £25k on furnishings and fittings. Add in mortgage interest other expenses and a limited rental income in the first year due to the work and you could

easily end up with a loss of £100k for accounting purposes in the first year. This figure is carried forward to the next year and further losses are added and carried forward every year until there is a profit. It’s easy to see a situation where accumulated losses in 10 years’ time were 150k or more. The positive way of looking at this is that the first £150k of income from your holiday home will be tax freeyou may retire and use your pension lump sum to pay off the mortgage, sell another property or just knuckle down with the repayments but once the mortgage is much lower or paid off and as rental income rises profit will follow and you’ll be able to keep all of it, even if you’re a higher rate taxpayer. This could form part of a retirement plan or fund activities when the kids have left home, as long as you keep the property or own any other holiday let the losses will be there to use forever. Finally with that in mind don’t forget it’s still worth maximising your losses• Travel expenses- all those business trips to oversee the work at 45p/ mile • Capital allowance claims on property purchase • Capital items such as furnishings are written down at 100% nowadays • If you can transfer any borrowing to the holiday let from your main home then do so • Subsistence- if you are on site for a few days overseeing work then you have to eat! Please note all this is just general comment and you should speak to your accountant or financial advisor for full information

It’s starting to look as though the pension reforms which have just came into force a few years ago may be starting to affect the property market in Dorset. Over the years I’ve met many owners telling me that their holiday home is their pension, often saying that they didn’t want their money tied up so they couldn’t get at it if they need to and they had no faith in the financial services industry. Over the years the government has addressed some of these concerns by creating Sipps (selfinvested personal pensions) where you control how the money is invested and many institutions allow great flexibility in choosing funds but it has always been a defining principle that the only a quarter of the fund could be drawn on retirement, the rest must be used to provide an income. The 2014 budget produced a huge but very welcome surprise for the industry with George Osborne completely removing the restrictions on taking money out of your pension pot once you are 55 (this age limit will rise over time). This could mean that in future people will be more inclined to put the money into a pension than buy a holiday home but I suspect that there will be a far greater boost to the market from people either drawing down or anticipating drawdown and using the money to fund a holiday home. As highlighted above losses from refurbishment and a high mortgage can be used to produce tax free income with one of the ways this could work being the use of a pension lump sum to clear off the mortgage. This has been made even more practical with the new arrangements giving lots of flexibility to take income from the property or the pension in the most tax efficient way.

The devil is in the detail of course and the lurid headlines about pensioners buying Bugattis all fail to mention the crucial point that withdrawals above the normal 25% will taxed as income, inevitably pushing into the 40% band and maybe into 45%. Careful planning will be necessary. Despite the potential negatives I can foresee plenty of people withdrawing large sums to fund holiday property purchases or buying with mortgages to be paid off by a pension withdrawal as it’s an investment you can enjoy and over the last 20 years has probably been as good as any.

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

30 Years Experience As the current leading online retailer of high-efficiency gas and electric fires, it’s no surprise that Superior Fires have decided to set-up a static showroom, right here in Dorset. Located in Christchurch, their showroom boasts an incredibly wide range of fires; stoves, gas, electric, even LED screens that simulate a roaring blaze. The possibilities are endless. Someone you might not have heard of (but will most certainly know of) is their parent company ‘Focal Point Fires’; the single largest gas fire manufacturer in the UK, with clients including DIY giant, ‘B&Q’. Chances

46

are if you have ever looked for a fire in B&Q it’s probably one that has been made by Focal Point. Superior Fires is actually a subsidiary of Focal Point – the same talents with new ambitions. The company was set-up with the aim to create an entirely new direction and a service that enabled customers to create something that would fit in perfectly with their home.

On Trend; Stoves For top-notch interior designers the stove is the new ‘it’ focal point – one flip through the pages of a luxury home magazine would tell you that. The stove represents both traditional and contemporary style, which is why it has become increasingly popular over the last couple of years. The superior quality of SF’s products is much unlike your average stove; using only the best materials, Superior Fires create the desired authenticity of a log burning fire, without the hassle or up-keep.


INTERIORS

Flue Who It’s a common misconception that those without a flue or chimney are unable to have a fire in their home, but Superior Fires are breaking convention with innovation! Their unique technological advancements allow them to achieve 100% efficient fires without a chimney or flue.

On Trend; Inset Wall Fires For a sleek and stylish look, inset wall-mounted fires are the best. Their extensive range of high-spec fires adds a touch of sophistication to any room and being inset into the wall means no loss of space. There’s no need to worry about installation either, as their team will handle it all.

Visit Their Showroom Set-up with a unique layout, the Superior Fires showroom provides the ultimate shopping experience.

The space is a collection of chambers, showcasing a wide range of styles, in a variety of different room settings. “The idea is to enable visitors to better visualise our fires in their home”, Michael explained.

From Net to Door Their brand-new seamless online ordering system allows customers to explore their range, with full customisation options too. Their team of skilful installers work nationwide, installing Superior Fires in homes across the country - making shopping for your next fire totally hassle-free and fun!

With demolition nearly complete, the construction of just 8 bespoke apartments is underway. These homes will be completed to the highest specification and finish; this married with the enviable views they’ll boast is already making these apartments sought after, with current enquiries being taken.

These homes which are in walking distance of several bars and restaurants situated along the coastal road running between Barton and New Milton, will be ready for occupation Summer 2018.

Through a gated entrance, this development comprises a mix of sizeable, two and three bedroom apartments, with spacious living accommodation, balconies, an internal elevator, private parking and landscaped garden areas. The Development Name ‘Strollers Reach’ has been derived from the famous pony Stroller, who was the first and only, Olympic medal-winning, Show Jumping Pony, and is now laid to rest at the Barton-On-Sea Golf Club which this prestigious development overlooks. Stroller, a Bay Gelding standing at 14.1h.h, was raised on a local farm and went on to have an explosive 15 year championship 74

This plot was originally purchased in 2016 after AJ Developments were in competition with a number of larger developers, however their approach was personable, professional and honest, which, after receiving feedback from the previous owners, was what won AJ the plot. Not only would the previous owners encourage other homeowners to use AJ Developments, but they would also recommend AJ to others looking to find out or enquire about selling their plots, whether in its entirety or just a portion.

TALKING BUSINESS

LIFETIME MORTGAGES The Bank of Mum & Dad Today it’s extremely common for young adults in their 20’s and even 30’s to be either still living at home or in expensive rented accommodation. Although they would love a place of their own, the media is flooded with stories about generation ‘Y’ and their inability to afford extortionate deposits, leaving parents (aka ‘The Bank of Mum and Dad’) the only viable option for most millennials. The fact is property prices are at an all-time high, which is great for those who bought in the 1970’s and 80’s but a real problem for those hoping get their very first place now. We met with financial expert Liz Murley, of Apex CB Financial Planning, to discuss how Equity Release (now known as Lifetime Mortgages) can help your children get onto the property ladder. Who is Apex CB Financial Planning? Managing Director Chris Ryan founded the business in 2004, having been in financial services professionally for 12 years, seeing an opportunity to develop a business focused on long-term relationships and a personal approach. With 35 years in Personal Banking, Liz has developed a broad knowledge of all property related financials and is thoroughly competent and qualified in all matters Equity Release. Chris and Liz have a wealth of financial planning knowledge – with a combined almost 50 years of experience between them. 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 advice service for Lifetime Mortgages. Introducing Lifetime Mortgages Equity release schemes of 20 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. 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 27,534 new plans agreed last year raising £2.15 billion, according to Equity Release Council research. The Bank of Mum and Dad For many young people raising the deposit required to buy their first home can seem an insurmountable challenge. The high cost of rent makes saving impossible for many, trapping them in properties they can’t hope to own. The Halifax First-Time Buyer Review has found that the average deposit is now £33,000 in the South and £100,000 in London. The baby-boomer generation has seen the value of their properties increase by on average 400% since 1993, contributing to the £5.1 billion raised in Inheritance Tax (IHT) over 12 months to May 2017, up 9% on the previous year. For many parents and grandparents a Lifetime Mortgage provides a solution to help the younger generation get their first home without having to sell their home first, or giving away their savings or liquidating investments. Known as “inter-generational gifting”, money gifted as an advanced inheritance could help your family get a home of their own, and potentially save them a large tax bill too. So how does it work? Using a Lifetime Mortgage to release equity from the property provides a lump sum that can be gifted and, providing you live 7 years from making this gift, there will be no impact on your IHT nil rate band. Reducing the value of your estate by creating a debt is a legitimate means of planning, providing that the capital is irrevocably gifted away and there is no retained interest. However, losing control of your money may have unexpected consequences in the future: Many company pensions provide a reduced pension for the surviving spouse, and then there is the matter of long-term care fees to consider too. So, a specialised type of financial plan known as a “Discounted Gift Trust” can provide a solution. This plan gifts away capital using a trust but allows the donor to take fixed regular withdrawals, and is suitable for those

Chris Ryan

under 90 with normal life expectancy. It usually removes part of the capital from the taxable estate immediately, creating a day one tax saving for the family. Chris said “We helped a couple in their 70’s achieved potential IHT savings of £240,000 by accessing equity from the family home and making an immediate gift to a Discounted Gift Trust for the ultimate benefit of the children and grandchildren. The regular payments from the Trust will be used to service the interest on the Lifetime Mortgage preventing the debt from rising, until they need the money for other purposes”. Inter-generational gifting: the benefits By reducing the value of your assets now you could save your children a potentially huge tax burden when you die. However for larger gifts in most cases you need to survive 7 years from the date of the gift, so if you are considering this you should seek advice sooner rather than later. You can help your family when they need it most. As life expectancy increases children tend to be financially well established by the time they inherit, so giving them access to family money sooner may be of real benefit. Lifetime gifting may also be a means of making a meaningful contribution to your grandchildren’s future, by paying for their education or paying off their student debt. A Lifetime Mortgage can help you achieve these things by accessing the value of your home without having to downsize. How much could you borrow? There are some age restrictions when it comes to actually taking out a Lifetime Mortgage: 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

Liz Murley

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. 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.

Not your average residential park Each and every home is utterly unique. As we wandered around their ‘Cambrian Serenity’ home, that was evident. It was bursting with understated luxury; glossy tiles, chalky-grey wood, dense fluffy carpets, matte-black feature radiators and sofas to sink into. After speaking with Sales Manager ‘Simon Stephens’ I discovered that you could actually customise every inch of your new home, from tiles to accessories – all provided by top quality suppliers.

TY

The park is stunning – I know I’ve already mentioned spectacular and gorgeous but seriously, it’s all true! I’m still in awe; fourteen and a half acres of forest, with almost one hundred homes scattered amongst the trees. I love the contrast of the organic forest, against the modernity of the homes, peeking through the trees. It’s not at all like your average residential park. I ask you, how do you envisage when someone says, ‘mobile home’? Mustard yellows, plastic awnings and garish white panelling? Think again…

O U N D P M

estled in a picturesque pine-filled forest is the spectacular Lone Pine Park: a 14.5 acre residential development for those 55 plus, who are looking for somewhere very special to reside. We were invited to their gorgeous development that is adjoining ‘Golf Links Road’ in Ferndown, also known as ‘Millionaire’s Row’.

Where tranquility, exclusivity & luxury are home...

A truly enchanting 14.5 acre sylvan setting development, with its unique prestige location adjacent to members only Championship Golf Course and beautiful Heathland, ideal for leisurely walks. A fully assisted Home Exchange Scheme is also available to ensure a smooth transition and secure idyllic lifestyle within the beautiful surroundings of Lone Pine Park The homes are carefully manoeuvred into place with a brickbuilt base and completed with your own garage and/or shed and landscaped garden; just enough to maintain, without taking up all of your time. The park is divided up into small cul-de-sacs, all individually named (a rather adorable touch). One minute you might be strolling through ‘Honeysuckle Close’ and the next minute you’re in ‘Foxglove Glade’. This is just phase two of an incredible plan to upgrade the entire park, into a five star premium residential estate. Prestigious location As mentioned on introduction, Lone Pine Park is situated within the confines of ‘Golf Links Road’. Near to Sandbanks, this is a hot spot for many flocking millionaires. This area is packed with extravagant property and just so happens to back onto a premium championship golf course. But it’s not just the wealth that draws people to this area. In addition to all of the luxuries,


O BA U N N D C A IL TA X C

• Exquisite location • Exclusive lifestyle • Retirement living at its very best • Close to local amenities • Detached bespoke homes • Gated and secure development

the area surrounding Lone Pine Park boasts some gorgeous views of ‘Parley Common’ and the surrounding woods. Where deer and other such enchanting animals can be spotted prancing around. Being just a short bus-ride away from Ringwood, Bournemouth, Wimborne and the beautiful New Forest there is a plethora of things to see and do, no more than fifteen minutes away. Despite its prestigious location, these stunning homes won’t break the bank. With luxury homes starting from £249,950 you can secure yourself a little piece of ‘millionaires row’ for a fraction of the price.

Diary of Award Winning Sales and Letting Agent Move On

propcon

Sharon Canning

ARE ESTATE AGENTS WORTH THEIR COMMISSION? Estate agents do get a lot of bad press. In a recent survey for the most trusted profession, they came 23 out of 25! The top 3 were Teachers, Doctors and Judges. Estate Agents came just above government ministers and politicians! You would think, with all the competition out there, estate agents would make sure they are giving the upmost attention and service to their clients. At the beginning of August, my husband and I completed on a property that will be our new home. We purchased through another agent (who will remain nameless). This agent was offering 0% to the vendors, however, they are charging the purchaser instead, although we did not know this when we viewed the property, we did agree to pay it as part of the sale, however, does this not straight away muddy the waters? If I am paying the fee, then surely, I am now the client? This was how our sale went. 1. First viewing – agent was 10 minutes late 2. Second viewing – agent was 40 minutes late

NEW PROPERTY & CONSTRUCTION EXPO COMES TO THE SOUTH COAST Intalent Solutions Ltd, the south coast’s most innovative outsourced recruitment provider are set to host their inaugural Property and Construction Expo at Poole’s landmark Italian Villa, set in the majestic Compton Acres gardens. The event will run from 1pm-5pm on 8th November and is aimed at businesses working within the property and construction sectors, to

After 3 weeks, I received a call from the vendor, who had been informed by another agent, the sale was in fact not real? Who says this? The other agent was trying to put an offer through and put the vendor through what I feel is unnecessary stress, the offer was not more than mine, it was a cash offer.

provide an opportunity to network, make contacts and keep up to

Thankfully she looked up my number. I was able to reassure her that the sale was very real and because we had no chain, we would still be able to complete relatively quickly. I am so pleased she rang me, she was very upset. We continued to text each other with updates, as we clearly were not getting anything from the agent.

information regarding current affairs and relevant legislation

The nameless agent, never rang me for or with updates, I did not receive a phone call of congratulations when we exchanged or when we completed. When I collected the keys from their office, the atmosphere was dead! I did write to the owner of this agency and expressed my shock at how I had been treated. He replied with a brief message saying he would pass my comments on. You know, part of me was keen to find out how other agencies worked and I hoped that I may even be taught something new! The only thing I learnt was how great our customer service is and how awful theirs was! We touch base regularly with our vendors and purchasers and solicitors all the way through. Communication is so important! Please don’t tar us all with the same brush. If you are with an agent now, who you feel doesn’t care, then they really don’t deserve you! Either leave or tell them to shape up and give you that service.

date with the latest industry news. Welcome drinks and canapes will be served on arrival at 1pm followed by a series of expert speakers providing up to date affecting the industry. Only a dozen or so positions are available for industry specialists to exhibit at the event and these will be allocated on a first come first served basis. Intalent founder Matthew Edge-Wilkins said: “We are property recruitment specialists, supporting some of the UK’s most exciting property brands to source and retain the best talent in the sector. Our aim is to bring together property and construction companies in the form of an exhibition and provide a networking opportunity for local businesses to demonstrate their services and promote brand recognition. We have some amazing speakers lined up, who will cover a range of hot topics.” The Bournemouth Property Association are supporting the event and there are some very attractive sponsorship packages available to companies who want to get involved.

TALKING BUSINESS

THE ORIGINAL BED WAREHOUSE Your Local Bed Specialists Who Are Bed Warehouse? The Original Bed Warehouse is the newborn business taking the industry by storm. This August marks their first year of opening and in that short time over 2,500 local residents have snatched up their phenomenal prices and unbeatable deals. Founders ‘Gary Stout’ and ‘Andy Watts’ have a combined 30 years in retail, wholesale and manufacturing and this company is nothing less than a product of that extensive experience and their passion for exceptional customer service. “We noticed the bed industry is split in three directions: Online, Large Multiples and Small Independent”, says Gary. Whilst online retailers can sometimes give you a great price, you’re purchasing a bed you’ve never seen, from a company on the other side of the world. It’s going to be shipped much like any other package, so is suspect to arriving late or worse, damaged in transit.

Large Multiples are all designed to do one thing: Take as much money from you as possible. They use ‘sales’ that often don’t exist and once you’re in the store the salesman, whom is driven by incentives, will take you on a journey to spend far more than you ever planned to, but it’s ok, they do finance! The lead times are much longer, usually 4-6 weeks and you are often charged for delivery. Small Independents seem to be disappearing, which is a shame because more often than not you’re given a friendly, tailored service and an honest approach. However the ever-growing force of the Internet, and our, “I want it yesterday” mentality, has left this side of the industry unable to compete. The Original Bed Warehouse has taken all of the best bits of the above to create an experience that you’ll appreciate. No pushy salesman, great product ranges and affordable prices, with no compromise to quality or guarantees.

The customer [can] now modify their mattress for the perfect sleeping experience. 138


TALKING BUSINESS

The Journey (Thus Far) The year leading up to opening Andy and Gary traveled across the country meeting suppliers and manufacturers and meticulously put together the first range of mattresses to be sold at The Original Bed Warehouse. The response was phenomenal, notably with their kick off mattress ‘The Original Pocket 1000’ (starting at just £169). The opening months went from strength to strength with the entire collection being incredibly well received by their customers. “As our customer base increased we soon became aware that their requirements were becoming more specific, with that we developed our ‘handmade collection’, (starting from £419) to meet those needs. Suddenly, the customer could now modify their mattress for the perfect sleeping experience. We feel as if now we can cater for any requirement, need and price point – offering a wide selection of mattresses, which all provide different comfort levels”, Says Andy. What Are You Planning For The Future? The future is certainly looking promising for us. We are soon to be launching our bedroom furniture range (more to be revealed in a further issue of House Magazine!), we are looking to stock some fantastic rise and recline furniture aids and of course some new mattresses! Watch this space.

Why choose The Original Bed Warehouse? We are a friendly, approachable and knowledgeable team who genuinely enjoy our work. We understand the high-selling pressures that come with visiting the high-street retailers, but we allow our mattresses to sell themselves and are only there to guide you on the journey through our showroom. To help you discover what you find most comfortable, at a price that works for you. What Makes You Unique? • In stock items are available for next day delivery. • Customised orders 10-14 days lead time. • Ability to store your orders for as long as required

• Free room of choice delivery & assembly with our experienced 2 man service. • Can arrange for delivery on the day you move in, or at your convenience. • Low prices at no compromise to quality, or comfort. • All our divan bases and mattresses are ‘National Bed Federation’ approved. • …And made right here in Britain. • Huge variety of customisation options: 100+ colours and fabric choices. Luxury Handmade Collection The Luxury Handmade range – a unique collection, unlike any other in the area – is a series of exceptional quality, hand-stitched mattresses made right here in Britain. Featuring

opulent fibres such as New Zealand Wool, Silk and Cashmere, these mattresses are truly the height of luxury, with pillow tops in wool or latex and cashgora wool for that extra special touch. Every inch is customisable, including firmness, fabric, and even sizes outside of the usual conventions. With such a high level of confidence in the product, they offer a 5-10 years (dependent on product) guarantee on our hand made mattresses. For Those With Limited Storage Maximise your bedroom storage with their high-quality ottoman bed collection. Opt for side or end opening base that works with, not against, the space you have. With over 100+ fabrics and colours to choose from there’s something for every style and with 30+ matching floor-standing headboards you can create a luxurious look for less! Unlike a lot of storage beds, these ottoman divans are built to last, with a strong base and 4 x high-pressured gas pistons to aid with lifting and closing without unnecessary force. For an extra special finishing touch why not complete the look with one of their ottoman boxes, or plush lounging chairs, which can be upholstered in matching fabrics. If you’re in the market for a new bed, mattress or both, then visit The Original Bed Warehouse. t. 01202 696969 e. sales@theobw.com w. theoriginalbedwarehouse.com a.

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

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

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

WE BUY ANY CAR? We live in a world of convenience. Lunch gets delivered on scooters, films can be watched on our mobiles, all the while checking emails, turning the heating on, and checking if the dog let itself out after the cleaners left to pick up your kids. It seems people sometimes disregard additional costs for the simplicity factor, only to find that it could end up costing more in the long run. The same can be said for your old car. Yes, it is a nightmare selling it yourself, particularly answering calls on a Sunday from that guy that wants to bring his entire family to kick your tyres because he has nothing else to do. Or there’s the infamous “cash buyer”, who wants to sit at your kitchen table counting old twenties while your kids are eating their cereal. So, how awesome is it that we have companies advertising that they will buy your car regardless, give you money straight away and you have nothing else to worry about…they even have websites so you can see how much your car is worth beforehand – convenience. But, what happens when you get there and they start to scrutinise your pride and joy. That little dent from Mary at Tesco as she lost control of her trolley. The scrape from next door’s kid’s football as he crossbar challenged your roof rails. The fact that you may have actually used your tyres and god forbid you missed a service. All of a sudden, that online figure that tempted you to take the easier route is decimated by some smartly quipped guy and his clipboard. You either leave, dreading the thought of advertising the car yourself, or you actually take their offer because now you feel like you should. Well, why not consider this: take your car to an expert, who will professionally appraise it for all the good stuff it has. Let them know how much you would like for your car and watch them work hard to achieve that value for you. All the while helping you to get excited about your next purchase and bridging the gap between old and new quickly, professionally and with an interest in what is a massive decision for you. One place, one chat, one convenient way to sell or buy your next car. RB Prestige will buy any car too. But we respect the time and money you have invested in your current car, while advising the best way to go forward. You can be at ease knowing that we will be here again in the future for you, making it even easier the next time – Convenience personified. Call us! If you have any questions at all about the buying and selling process, we would be happy to help.

MOTORING

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

NEW CITROËN C3 AIRCROSS Citroën’s new C3 Aircross compact SUV will be on sale in the UK from November, priced from £13,995. Citroen says it offers class-leading space, Grip Control technology with Hill Descent Assist and delivers continuous connectivity with the range debut of Wireless Smartphone Charging. Technology continues as a core theme in the Aircross with 12 different technologies including voice controlled 3D navigation, keyless entry and start, a reversing camera, lane departure warning and blindspot monitoring. Available in three trim levels Touch, Feel and Flair, New C3 Aircross has highperformance PureTech petrol and BlueHDi diesel engines, as well as the latest generation fully automatic gearbox.

ROAD TEST: TOYOTA YARIS ICON TECH Toyota has splashed out £76 million re-vamping its Yaris, a car that was already outstanding in its class, writes NICK FLETCHER. There is no longer a three-door model nor a diesel engine in the line up, which now offers 1.0 litre, 1.3 and new 1.5 litre petrol engines. A 6-speed manual gearbox is standard, auto tramission an option, and you can also get a fuel-saving hybrid model. Yaris competes in the tough supermini sector dominated by Fiesta, Corsa and Polo and so needs to be impressive - and it is. The £76 million has been partly spent on giving the car a sharper and more substantive new exterior appearance and the refreshed cabin also has a more contemporary look. Upgraded technology and safety features also add value. Prices start at £12,495 for an adequately equipped 69 hp 1.0 litre version, but most buyers will be heading up-range, and some will be opting for the new 110 hp 1.5 litre petrol engine which offers improved performance and almost 60 mpg. This was the engine in my Icon Tech version, laden with kit and costing £15, 845. The 0-60 mph time is a modest 11 seconds, top speed 109 mph and the fuel figure very respectable at 58.9 mpg combined. It’s a smooth quiet engine mated to a positive-shift 6-speed manual gearbox, and with

light precise steering too, the new Yaris delivers a pleasing driving experience. The car offers a slightly higher driving position than some in the sector, and there is plenty of adjustment for seat and steering wheel so most people should easily find their ideal settings. There is no wow-factor for the dashboard but it is well-designed for ease of use. The Yaris has a surprisingly amount of cabin space – more than appears from the outside – and can accommodate five adults with decent leg and head room, though four will be more comfortable. At 286 litres, the boot is quite large and folding the rear seats boosts space to 768 litres. Standard equipment on the Icon Tech model includes auto wipers, auto lights (including auto-high-beam), alloy wheels, air-conditioning, cruise control, multi-media 7-inch touchscreen, sat nav, on-line connectivity, front parking sensors, rear view camera and safety kit including pre-collision response and lane departure alert. Main rivals in the sector all have strong individual pluspoints but my overall impression of this latest Yaris is that it is a great all-round package under-pinned by Toyota’s fine reputation for reliability, robust re-sale values and a five-year warranty – many rivals offer only three years.

SANDERO AND LOGAN UPDATES

148

Dacia is making a number of updates and equipment upgrades to the New Sandero and New Logan MCV ranges, priced from £8,595 and £9,895 respectively. The new 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol engine produces the same power as the outgoing 1.2-litre 16V 75, but is up to 10 per cent more efficient. Equipped with the SCe 75 engine, the New Sandero returns 54.3mpg combined, with CO2 emissions of 117g/km. The 0-60 mph time is 14.2 seconds, top speed of 98 mph. The New Logan MCV SCe 75 achieves 52.3mpg combined and 120g/km of CO2. The 0-60 mph time is 14.7 seconds, top speed 98 mph. Ambiance trim for both vehicles will have the previously optional Height Adjustment Pack fitted as standard. The pack consists of height adjustment for the driver’s seat, steering wheel and front seatbelts.


MOTORING

BENTLEY GALENE EDITION

ROAD TEST: MINI COUNTRYMAN With famous brand image and build-quality plus increased practicality, the new Mini Countryman is certainly going to please existing customers and win over a lot of potential new buyers, writes NICK FLETCHER. Six Countryman variants are available, all with the Cooper prefix, with different engine outputs spanning 136 hp to 228 hp. There is also the option of a plug-in hybrid. All except the hybrid have a 6-speed manual gearbox though there is the option of an automatic, and all-wheel-drive. To Mini purists, the Countryman’s exterior styling may look a little awkward but there will be no complaints about the larger interior space, which allows it to rival crossover models such as Audi Q2, Mazda CX-3, Peugeot 3008 and SEAT Ateca. Prices start at £22,695 for the model featured, the entry level Countryman Cooper with the 1.5 litre 3-cylinder petrol engine and standard 6-speed manual gearbox. Top speed is 126 mph, the 0-60 mph time 9.6 seconds. Fuel economy is 51.4 mpg combined. While this larger Mini heavier than the standard car and therefore is not quite as nimble, it is still nippy enough to add

a fun factor to the driving. The steering is precise and reacts swiftly, giving good grip and composed handling. The ride is on the firm side, but acceptably so and overall, noise levels are low and the driving feel quite refined. This entry model is well-kitted with 16-inch alloys, 6.5 inch touchscreen, sat-nav, DAB radio, Bluetooth, air-con, cruise control, roof rails, auto lights and wipers and rear-view camera. Standard connected services on all models include compatibility with an iPhone via MINI’s Connected app. The larger cabin means four adults can travel in comfort, and five if the rear occupants are prepared to squash. The 40/20/40 rear seat fold configuration is useful for occupant and load variation and the boot space, up from 350 litres on the previous model to 450 litres on the latest, can extend to 1,390 litres with rear seats down. The dashboard is lifted by chrome detailing, big dials and chunky switchgear and the overall impression is of classy durability. While not as practical as some crossovers/compact SUVs, it has the bonus of a cool image and BMW-Mini build integrity.

Bentley has announced a Continental GT Convertible Galene Edition, the design inspired by luxury yachts. Bentley’s bespoke commissioning division, Mulliner, has created ‘the ultimate edition’ of the Continental GT Convertible in collaboration with British yacht experts, Princess Yachts. Only 30 Galene models will be made, and the price has not been disclosed. The Galene is powered by Bentley’s 4.0-litre twin-turbo 500 hp V8 powerplant, and has a four-layered retractable hood. Painted in Glacier White, with a matching bodywork kit, the Galene Edition is specified with lower brightware in Sequin Blue, ‘an elegant reminder of the life aquatic’, says Bentley. A dark blue hood and striking 21” polished Propeller Wheels complete Mulliner’s external signature on the Galene Edition. Interior fascia panels can be specified with a unique handpainted Jaume Vilardell illustration of a super yacht alongside the Mulliner script in each car.

NEW AUDI RS3 DEBUT New Audi RS 3 Saloon and Sportback models are now available in the UK priced at £44,300 and £45,250 respectively. Both feature a 395 hp 2.5 litre five-cylinder petrol engine giving 0-60 mph in 4.1 seconds and 174 mph top speed. A seven-speed S tronic dual-clutch transmission channels the power of the 2.5 TFSI to the quattro permanent all-wheel drive system, and the driver can adjust the shift points, and the proportion of torque directed rearwards, through Audi drive select. It also influences the operating characteristics of the progressive steering, engine management and adjustable exhaust flaps. Technology-focused options for the new RS 3 duo include the Audi phone box, which inductively charges smartphones and connects directly to the car’s aerial for optimal reception quality, and the Bang & Olufsen Sound System producing 705 watts of power via 14 speakers. There are also eight options which carry out tasks such as keeping the RS 3 at a defined distance from vehicles in front, assisting the driver when changing lanes or staying within the given lane, detecting traffic signs and helping to avoid frontal collisions and pedestrian accidents.

MEET THE FOOD BLOGGER WHO’S ONE SAVVY COOK Izy Hossack is just 20 and still a student. The blogger tells Ella Walker how feeding herself at university has transformed how she cooks Izy Hossack is celebrating finishing her second year at Leeds University, where she studies food science and nutrition, by publishing her second recipe collection, The Savvy Cook. The 20-year-old foodie is best known for her blog, Top With Cinnamon, and matching Instagram account (229k followers and counting), where she posts beautifully-lit photos of oozing chocolate chip cookies and chunks of pecanstudded brownies.

“I always do that thing where you buy a big bag of spinach because you don’t want to buy the tiny one, and then it goes slimy and you never use it up,” admits Izy, so she developed a leftovers section, where anything spare from one recipe can be cross-referenced and with other meals it’ll fit into. The book is also vegetarian, partly, again, to keep costs down, and partly because Izy watched a glut of Netflix documentaries on the environmental impact of dairy and meat farming. “If I’m going to buy meat, I want to buy high-quality stuff,” she explains. “It’s just really hard to fit that into your budget.”

The Savvy Cook, however, draws on how she went about feeding herself as a first-year student. “I’d baked a lot, but I hadn’t ever really cooked for myself throughout the whole week, and I had to go food shopping and budget,” recalls Izy.

The Savvy Cook offers gluten-free and vegan slants on recipes too, so you can avoid that moment when “you’re cooking for friends and one’s vegan and one’s gluten-free, and you’re just like, ‘I don’t know what to cook you!’”

She started menu planning, pooling recipes from cookbooks and online to “keep it interesting”, and the result is a stack of simple, intriguing recipes that help you plan ahead, cut waste and stick to your budget.

Food that’s accessible, regardless of income or nutritional needs, is crucial to Izy’s ethos - which means no obscure ingredients, either. In fact (supermarket-friendly) tahini and miso are as exotic

as it gets, and they’re featured in multiple recipes, so it’s not like “buy this jar of expensive ingredient and let it sit in your cupboard for the next six months!” The Savvy Cook by Izy Hossack, is published in hardback by Mitchell Beazley, priced £14.99.

Ingredients

Chocolate Chip, Raspberry & Almond Cake

(Serves 6)

To serve: Whipped cream or natural yogurt Fresh raspberries

Bake in the oven for 30-35 minutes until the middle of the cake springs back when you apply light pressure with your finger. Remove from the oven and leave the cake to cool in the tin. Once completely cooled, slice and serve as is, or with whipped cream or yogurt and fresh raspberries.


FOOD & DRINK

Mushroom, Sage & Garlic Pasta (Serves 2)

PA Photo/Mitchell Beazley/Izy Hossack

Ingredients

Method

125g dried pasta or 250g cooked 4tbsp olive oil or rapeseed oil 1tbsp plain white flour 300ml vegetable or chicken stock 20g Parmesan, finely grated (or other hard cheese) 1 bay leaf 4 large sage leaves 100g chestnut or button mushrooms, sliced 3tbsp dried breadcrumbs 1 garlic clove, crushed or very finely chopped Salt

If starting with dried pasta, place the pasta in a medium pan and cover with just-boiled water from the kettle. Bring to the boil and cook until al dente (this will generally be the shorter cooking time on the packet). Drain, reserving a small mugful of the pasta water. Heat one tablespoon of the oil in a medium pan over a medium heat. Add the flour and stir for one minute then reduce the heat to low and gradually pour in the stock, stirring well between additions, until all the stock has been added. Stir in the Parmesan and add the bay leaf. Simmer for five minutes, stirring occasionally, then season with salt to taste. 3. Heat the remaining oil in a small frying pan over a medium-high heat. Add the sage leaves and fry until crisp. Drain on kitchen paper and set aside.

Add the sliced mushrooms to the pan and cook over a medium heat for five to seven minutes until dark and soft. Pour the cooked mushrooms into the sauce and return the frying pan to the heat. Add the breadcrumbs, garlic and a pinch of salt to the frying pan and toast, stirring constantly but gently, for two minutes, so the garlic cooks and the breadcrumbs are crisped. Remove the bay leaf from the sauce and pour it over the cooked pasta. Stir together and splash in a little of the reserved pasta water to loosen the mixture, if needed. Divide between dishes, then top with the mushrooms, breadcrumbs and crispy sage, and serve. 151

REVIEWED

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

KEY WEST BAR & GRILL Oh we do like to be beside the seaside Situated on the tip of Bournemouth Pier, Key West is a great place to take in the scenic beachfront, all the while seaside classics, wine and cocktails. We were invited to review their summer menu and find out more. We arrived on a serendipitously sunny day; the air was warm and filled with anticipation. We paid our small (if not slightly un-fair) toll at the pier entrance and headed for the restaurant. It’s incredible really, having all of this natural beauty right on our doorstep. First impressions: beautiful. The room is a grand space; several tables surround the sweeping centralised dance floor. The ceiling – an elaborate geometric carving – glows with mood-enhancing lights that subtly change colour, lulling you into a serene state of mind. Almost the entire room is walled with windows, showcasing the picturesque sea and sand that surrounds. After much gazing, our daydreaming was pleasantly interrupted by our host who ushered us to a window seat overseeing the passers by. Having found the menus on the table we began our deliberating. The menu is certainly teeming with options. Burgers, sarnies, fish dishes, light bites, sharers and more, but we had been specifically invited to

152

sample their main lunch menu – a medley “seaside favourites with a sinful twist”. With an eclectic selection of British, Mediterranean – and even one Thai – dishes, the team was spoilt for choice. To aid our deliberation we sipped on a variety of nonalcoholic (for a change) sweet treats; iced-teas, fizzy pop and even a ‘fruit shoot’ (well, it was Matt’s 31st birthday). We pondered, selected and soon after, our food arrived. I had opted for a seaside classic, the ‘Fish & Chips. A plate-long fish mounted a pile of golden chips. The topside of the fish batter was by far my favourite thing on the plate (next to the homemade tartar sauce); it was crispy and light – the underside less so, on account of the fat collecting at the base, making for a super oily experience. To my left, Vicky was snacking on a veg-friendly burger, stuffed with flat mushroom, lentils, spinach and a hearty helping of house-spiced relish and pickle, held together by a locally baked brioche bun – a wonderful combination of flavours, that perhaps could have been made better with the addition of cheese. To my right, Gary and Ross were tucking into the signature 8oz sirloin and judging by their lack of stopping for air during the meal, I’d say they were pretty happy. Across the way, Ciaran was enjoying his ‘fishy on a dishy’; a tuna steak smothered in Mediterranean butter, “tasty, understated fish packed with a lot of butter”, to quote him.

At the furthest end of the table – staring into each others eyes – were Ben and Matt, tucking into the ‘locally supplied mackerel fillet’, crossing arms and swapping forks the two shared the accompanying fine bean and potato gnocchi, scoping it up with the smoked salmon and tomato butter sauce. A massive thumbs up for Key West for their superb presentation. Every dish was uniquely designed, stacked high, with plenty of attention to detail. A ‘foodie spectacle’ as each plate/board arrived at our table. The staff were very attentive and a particularly massive thank you goes to the manager who came and collected us from the pier entrance on arrival. As the team finished up we contemplated the pilgrimage back to the office – wondering if we could roll the 2.3 miles downhill somehow. Eventually and with much effort, we wiped our chops and said our goodbyes. We had a pleasant lunch at Key West; the venue is pretty, the staff are friendly and helpful, and the food is good for simple seaside lunch.

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

FOCUS ON MEN’S SKIN There are many men who pay a lot of attention to their body and health. However, most of them forget about the fact that our skin is the largest organ of our body. This means it should be the first thing we pay attention to! Many Dermatologists suggest that Facials are more important for men as compared to women. Men have rougher skin with larger pores as compared to women. Large pores not only mean more visibility when it comes to a dirty face, but also higher exposure rate for environmental hazards. Facials can help reduce pore size and keep the skin free from oils that could attract unwanted particles and dirt your skin doesn’t need. It can also help the skin look a little less rugged, making a shaving a more pleasant experience. It also keeps men from having additional skin problems and concerns, like skin tags, age spots, and more. It’s also believed that men find facials very relaxing and can help in reducing stress. A facial can have a very big effect on a person’s life. It can help boost confidence, self-esteem, and overall outlook in life. 1. Men Produce More Oil In general, men have higher testosterone levels than women, which helps explain why men produce more oil. When not cleaned properly, oil will clog

Just because men produce more oil doesn’t mean all men have oily skin. Part of the reason facials are so effective is that aestheticians understand your skin type and its needs. For dry skin types, you’ll need a facial that leaves your skin hydrated and moisturised. If you have oily skin, you will need a facial that decreases your shine, shrinks your pores and exfoliates your skin. 2. You’ll Get a Smoother Shave Whether it’s every day or every two weeks, the continuous dragging of a razor across sensitive facial skin can cause irritation. Razor burn, inflammation, and irritation from shaving over pimples are common consequences of shaving. A facial will deep clean bumps and soothe irritated skin. The combination of exfoliation, essential oils, masks, and moisturisers that an aesthetician typically applies will address shaving’s side effects and make your skin smoother than ever. The smoother your skin, the better and less painful your shave. Even if you aren’t worried about wrinkles, this is one of the best reasons to slap on some moisturiser once or twice a day.

your pores and can lead to blackheads, which can lead to pimples. Most aestheticians will perform extractions during a facial, which is the very precise removal of oil and dirt that’s clogging pores. Do this yourself at home and risk serious skin damage, but in the right hands, the result is clean, clear skin.

3. The Pros Can Teach You Aestheticians use better, more effective products that aren’t sold over the counter. They can show you new techniques on how to apply products, the order in which to use them, and explain why. Chances are, you’ll be relaxed and if you want to check out, fine. But you can use this opportunity to ask questions. “What are you putting on my face?” “Why is that product going on first?” Aestheticians also use professional steamers to open your pores aiding the absorption of beneficial products. What to Expect A Chic Skincare Therapist will customise your Facial to suit your specific skin requirements using Dermalogica Skincare. During your Facial your skin will be thoroughly cleansed and exfoliated, steamed and any pore clearing work carried out. All our Facials include lots of Massage so are great for ultimate relaxation. Your therapist will talk you through any specific issues and recommend when to have your next Facial (normally every 4-6 weeks) and what you can be doing at home in between to maintain your results!

HEALTH & BEAUTY

CLINIC VISJEUNE This is a Man’s World Watching a woman complete her daily or nightly cosmetic ritual is fascinating. Cream after cream is applied – none of which you fully understand – only to emerge from the sanctum of the bathroom a glowing goddess – maybe less so on ‘mud mask’ night, when she appears more like a bog-monster from the marshlands. The point is, women are deeply immersed in the beauty industry, but men tend to fall short, especially down here on the South Coast. The good news is that the stigma surrounding the male grooming industry is changing, especially up in the capital, and it’s trickling its way down to Bournemouth. In an article published by The Independent, research unveiled that the male grooming industry had a worldwide value of £14.8 billion back in 2015, and according to global market research the industry is set to spike to a whopping £46 billion, by 2020. For those who haven’t yet taken a slice of this multi-million pound pie, we thought we’d do the legwork for you. We sent our token macho-man ‘Gary’ (lover of sport and burgers) to investigate the latest male treatments at locally loved ‘Clinic Visjeune’. Here is his account… “I am the first to hold my hands up and say that I find the beauty industry intimidating as a bloke. I’m not one to make any kind of cleansing or moisturising a habit and I definitely wouldn’t have dreamed of going to a salon before, but after much

deliberation (and taunting from colleagues) I decided to give it a go. Men, women, whoever; who among us doesn’t want to look younger? Who wouldn’t want to erase the facial evidence of sleepless nights, habitual stress and the copious amounts of pressure? As a father of three wonderful children, I can totally see the benefit of a little rest and relaxation. I went to Visjuene to test out the patented ‘Fire & Ice Treatment’ – the pre-red carpet procedure favoured by both male and female celebrities. I arrived with little known knowledge of the treatment, but all was cleared up by technician ‘Christie’ who explained the entire process before going any further. Salon owner and practiced cosmetic nurse ‘Lisa’ joined to see how I was getting on. Both Lisa and Christie were incredibly knowledgeable and straight-faced about the whole thing. I was clearly uncomfortable and whilst the girls could have made light of the situation, they didn’t. They were both so professional and I think that’s what made me feel at ease. They took me just as seriously as anyone else; it wasn’t a novelty or a laughing matter to them that a man had come to take care of his appearance. The ‘Fire & Ice Treatment’ is essentially a chemical peel. That might sound daunting, but this one is different. Unlike your usual skin peel, this super-quick treatment doesn’t

leave you red-faced. In-fact, with zero recovery time you can walk out the door and onlookers would be none the wiser. I made myself comfortable on their treatment couch and awaited the first product. After undergoing what the girls called a ‘deep cleanse’, the first masque was applied all over my face with a soft-bristled brush. Christie mentioned that it would warm up and maybe sting a little. I don’t have a necessarily high-pain threshold, but I didn’t feel much stinging, though when the formula was removed it definitely tingled. The second masque was applied shortly after to cool the cell-rejuvenating action of the first cream. The process was polished off with a series of gels and serums to rehydrate the skin. I picked up a mirror and held it away for a moment – what was going to be staring back at me…the new and improved Gary? Or someone more easily mistakable for Hell Boy? WOW I was genuinely impressed with

the results. It wasn’t obvious that I had something done; yet I looked revitalized and fresh. I spent the rest of the day receiving compliments and my confidence was through the roof. I called up as soon as I got back to the office and asked what else they could do. Along with this ‘Fire & Ice Treatment’ Clinic Visjuene offers a wealth of male-orientated treatments including ‘Laser Hair Removal’ – a painless, yet seriously effective hair removal treatment, suitable for all skin types. Just think, no more embarrassing back hair, no more covering up, no more stress. For those who want to seriously commit to looking younger, Visjuene offer the highest grade of AntiWrinkle injectables, delivered by a professional cosmetic nurse. The injectables are perfect if you are looking to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles, whilst extenuating masculine features. For these and tons more treatments, for both men and women, get in-touch with the incredibly friendly team at Clinic Visjene.
