Abbots Court Rural Escape welcomed VIP guests to its launch event on Wednesday 24th January and is now ready to welcome guests in search of the ultimate idyllic escape. Run by Dorset couple, Jez and Niki Barfoot of the award-winning The Tickled Pig restaurant in Wimborne www.thetickledpig.co.uk, Abbots Court Rural Escape has undergone a complete transformation since May 2017 and the results are stunning. Jez and Niki Barfoot guided VIP’s around the beautiful interiors and surroundings of Abbots Court during the evening, enticing them with a taste of the exceptional food and drink the venue has to offer with canapes and champagne. Furnished to very high standard, Abbots Court is a beautiful Victorian house which now offers luxury accommodation with dining and beautiful grounds suitable for midweek escapes, weekend retreats, intimate weddings and private events. Jez Barfoot, a MasterChef finalist said of his new venture: “We started the

refurbishments back in May 2017 and the results have exceeded our expectations. We’ve waited a long time to find the right place and it’s very exciting to be able to invite people in and let them experience all that Abbots Court has to offer.” “Guests can enjoy food picked fresh from the garden as our chefs prepare meals using locally sourced, seasonal food. They can wander freely though the grounds enjoying the peace and quiet as well as relaxing with the home comforts of luxury bed and breakfast accommodation in a Victorian house.” At the heart of this project is a unique walled kitchen garden with its newlybuilt living wall, which Jez created by hand using wood cleared from the site. The walled garden will be planted up with luscious heritage heirloom variety salads and a rich variety of fruit and veg.

BROADVIEW ADOPT FOREST HOLME AS THEIR CHARITY OF THE YEAR Poole-based Broadview Shading Solutions has adopted Forest Holme Hospice as their official charity for 2018. The interior, exterior and vehicle shading specialists, located on the Nuffield Industrial Estate, have close ties with the hospice having recently visited a former colleague who was cared for by Forest Holme so it was an easy decision to show their support. The thirty strong workforce at Broadview will be looking to raise vital funds and awareness of the work that Forest Holme does in the local areas of Poole, Wimborne and the Purbecks throughout the coming year and Director Mark Pratt is pleased to be able to help in some way. “Our staff are a charitable bunch that are always up for a challenge so I’m sure that as well as helping raise funds, we’ll have some fun along the way.” Forest Holme Hospice, which is part of Poole Hospital NHS Foundation Trust,

offers a peaceful setting for the care of both patients and their families and carers. Officially opened in January 1995, it is regarded as a centre of excellence for the care of people with advanced cancer and other life-limiting illnesses such as Motor Neurone Disease, other neurological conditions, heart failure, renal failure and respiratory illness. Their palliative and end of life care is provided to over one thousand local people each year. Fundraising & Communications Manager at Forest Holme Hospice Charity, Hannah Parsons, is delighted to welcome Broadview on board, “Hearing that Broadview were keen to support us this year was fantastic news. Without the generous backing of local companies, our fundraising would be so much harder. We already have some really exciting events planned for 2018, which I’m confident Broadview will support with enthusiasm!” In order to raise as much as they can for their newly adopted charity, Broadview has formed a new internal charity

2018 BAPTAS SEMI-FINALISTS ANNOUNCED The 2018 Bournemouth and Poole Tourism Awards (BAPTAs) semi-finalists have been revealed at a special invitation-only event at Bournemouth and Poole College on 30th January. The BAPTAs in association with Berendsen (previously known as the Bournemouth Tourism Awards), have been more competitive than ever with tourism businesses entering from across the whole of the BH post code area. Entrants were taken through a vigorous judging process which includes application assessments, a judging panel, visits and mystery shopping. The four voting categories were decided by public vote. All of the evidence has been verified by an independent judging panel. There are 19 categories this year, which include two new categories: The ‘New Business of the Year Award’ sponsored by SWRAC (South West Regional Assessment Centre) and the ‘Self-Catering Accommodation Award Category’ sponsored by Trethowans Solicitors.

Michelle Lessig, Regional Client Manager at Berendsen, Headline Sponsor of the BAPTAs, said: “We are proud to be associated with the awards, the standard of entries has been really high and impressive. We’ve had entries from all across the region including Bournemouth, Poole, Christchurch, Ferndown, Wimborne, Wareham and Swanage. “The awards raise the profile of tourism in Dorset across the BH post code area and that is vital for the delivery of the overall visitor experience. Congratulations to all of the semi-finalists.” Jackie Phillipson, Founder of ROUTEpr who manages and created the BAPTAs said: “It’s fabulous to see how the tourism trade has embraced the awards. The level of enthusiasm and excitement across the entrants, sponsors and partners has been inspiring. Now that we cover the whole BH post code area the judging process has been tougher than ever. The level of effort the entrants have given to their applications, as well as providing

the judges with valuable evidence, demonstrates their business growth and development and how they add value and contribute to the tourism industry.” “The tourism awards are vital in recognising and celebrating the hard work and dedication that goes into creating this award-winning destination, and they’re also a great opportunity to network and to learn from other businesses. The gala awards evening on 15th March is a great place to network, do business and above all for the industry to celebrate their success and to have some fun!” The winners will all be announced at a Final Gala Dinner Ceremony on 15th March 2018 at The Lighthouse in Poole. Tickets can be purchased via the website www.bapta.co.uk/tickets. For more information about the BAPTAs visit www.bapta.co.uk or contact jackie@routepr.agency.

Over the course of a weekend in January, 1,000 Christmas trees were collected from local residents in Dorset after they pre-booked their collections making a minimum of £5 donation per tree. Volunteers gave their time and lent their vans to collect trees from Poole, Bournemouth and other areas of East Dorset. Fiona Hansford, corporate and community manager at Diverse Abilities, said: “This was our third year of collecting and recycling Christmas trees and it was a huge success. A massive thank you goes to everyone that signed up. We collected over double the number of trees this year and raised more funds than 2017, which is fantastic for the charity. Not only does it take away the hassle of local residents disposing of their tree but it raises funds to further support children and adults living with disabilities in Dorset. If you would like to express interest in the Christmas tree recycling scheme for next year, please visit www.diverseabilities.org. uk/trees or call Fiona on 01202 718266.

Western Design Architects (WDA) are pleased to announce that a detailed planning approval has finally been granted for a new arts centre in Blandford. The new community venue will include a multifunctional theatre space that can accommodate 180 seats of which 80 are removable, box office and a public cafe/bar with external seating area. Blandford is currently the only market town in Dorset that does not have its own dedicated Arts Centre. WDA have teamed up with a number of organisations to gain this approval to bring a new community venue to the town.

The planning process was long and complex with the involvement of Historic England due to the sensitivity of the Burgage plot location. As the project is being completely funded through charities and grants, the brief required that part of the building had to be constructed out of natural and sustainable resources. The result is a unique building constructed from a mix of straw bale walls within a theatrical rigging structure. The design reflects the local heritage precedent through the use of traditional materials such as brick, timber and slate with the addition of large glazed panels to the front elevation.

SQUIDSOUP AT TOWN’S FIRST FESTIVAL OF LIGHT The town’s first free festival of light is set to transform the way Poole looks by casting a whole new light. Light Up Poole, sponsored by Poole BID and funded by Arts Council England, runs from 15 to 17 February and presents a complimentary series of opportunities to see Poole as it has never been seen before, as the town centre becomes the backdrop for dramatic light art and digital installations after dark. Among the headline pieces is a new version of the ‘Submergence’ installation created by Squidsoup. The piece has been seen all around the world and is created by an international collective of light artists, researchers, technologists and designers who create immersive digital and interactive media experiences. It is composed of thousands of individually controlled lights that interact with the audience as they explore. This new work is set to a soundtrack of sounds found in the town and each moment will be a unique display generated by the audience interacting with the lights. Squidsoup developed bespoke software during creation. A key element of the Light Up Poole festival is learning, and organisers have been working with local school students and young artists on a series of creative opportunities, including the Sounds of Poole album, vlog workshops and film poetry. Liam’s daughter Seren will be showing a projection mapping light art project made as part of her A-Level art studies at The Blandford School, exploring bird behaviour and form, as well as our relationship to them. On Dorset’s history of emerging media, Liam added: “Light Up Poole belongs in that tradition and as the town is one of the very few on the south coast that has an industrial landscape to respond to it is going to provide some really interesting perspectives.”

HOME IMPROVEMENTS

APPLE HOME IMPROVEMENTS Green Green Grass of Home There is no denying that looking out over a plush green lawn provides immense satisfaction and a tremendous sense of well-being. But when your lawn is long and rugged, full of weeds or moss and that patch that never grows catches your eye, don’t despair. There is a solution that continues to grow in popularity. Artificial lawns, while they are not for everybody or every home, they have become so advanced with a choice of styles that look fantastic, specially developed for multiple purposes and virtually maintenance free. Switching is hard to resist!

WHY SWITCH TO ARTIFICIAL GRASS? 1. Low Maintenance Straight off the bat, you don’t have to mow it, that’s a given, but installing artificial grass takes away

12

all of the heavy duty maintenance that you would have to put in, even to keep a relatively respectable lawn going there are hours of work involved. With an artificial lawn installed, the odd quick spray and sweep replaces continuous weeding, seeding, edging and of course mowing. If you have better things to do, then artificial grass is for you! 2. A Perfect Lawn All Year Round The season for outdoor living can be quite a long one in our region and our lawns can get a lot of use. Whether you are hosting parties and barbeques or family fun and gatherings, it’s great to have that super-smart, super-plush, perfect lawn all year round. With artificial grass your lawn won’t show any signs of wear and tear in the summer and won’t become muddy and slushy when it rains, which could also be in the summer.

3. Long Lasting The continual development of modern quality artificial grass provides more than just a variety of shades, lengths and styles to best suit the location and use. The materials used and manufacturing advancements provides a quality product that is robust enough to outlast 10 Year guarantees for many projects that have been professionally designed and expertly installed.

4. Environmentally Friendly Hold on, how can artificial grass be environmentally friendly? We have thought about this quite a lot at Apple, as many of our products have an element of energy efficiency we would certainly like to highlight any green credentials that artificial grass has. We believe that there is a reduction of energy usage in as much as you are not using electricity to mow and trim and if you have a petrol mower that’s a little bit of pollution that can be cut out. If there is a reduction in the use of weed killers, pesticides and hose pipes then that all contributes towards making artificial grass a green option in more ways than one. While artificial lawns are permeable so there is no effect on natural sustainable drainage, there is an impact on nature to some extent, so we encourage natural areas to be part of our customers overall design. This ethos is supported by our blog post: blog.applehomeimprovements.com/ how-to-create-a-wildlife-friendlygarden-when-you-have-artificialgrass

Where reputation matters


ASK THE ARCHITECT FRANK SNOW FROM POOLE ASKS…

‘My planning application is likely to be refused. Should I withdraw my application?’ Conservation Architect and Director at Western Design Architects, Phil Easton answers this question...

ASK THE EXPERT ABOUT...

USING A REMOVAL FIRM OR MAN & VAN Steve Webber, Director of Maidmans Moving & Storage Steve has many years experience in the moving and storage industry. Mr. M of Wimbourne asked, “What is the difference in using a removals company or a man & a van?” Steve says: “It is advisable to choose a removals company that is committed to the principles of British Association of Removers membership, as this will ensure that your removals company uses legal, licensed vehicles. There will also be protection for your deposit and arbitration or free conciliation in the unlikely event something goes wrong”. Steve went on to explain: “Small firms or a ‘Man & Van’ very often don’t employ their staff directly hiring casual labour when needed. If the crew aren’t professionals then you could find your possessions may not be looked after or packed well for the journey. Also bear in mind that if the crew aren’t employed full time, once the move is complete and they move on, there maybe no comeback”.

Occasionally, a planning officer will get in touch and say that they are minded to refuse a particular planning application. They go on to suggest that to avoid a refusal, the applicant should withdraw the application. Why would they want us to withdraw the application? A withdrawal is a quick and easy process for a case officer whereas writing a detailed officers report and lengthy decision notice with reasons for refusal takes a great deal of time and energy. This also means that the application outcome is not scrutinised and does not affect a council’s performance targets. Applicants can be scared into trying to avoid a ‘history of refusal’ on a site and by withdrawing they then have the opportunity to re submit a new application as a free go amended to suit the planner’s requirements. In fact, there is no guarantee that the revised application will be approved. Our recommendation to clients is always to ask for a decision. This forces the case officer to think carefully about their reasons for refusal. The decision notice will list their reasons for refusal and provides a defined set of parameters around which to formulate a redesign or prepare and submit an appeal. A new application on the same site should also not attract a new planning application fee if it is made within 12 months and is substantially similar.

Steve says: “When undertaking a house move with just a verbal agreement and a shake of hands, as is often the case with a ‘Man & Van’, you have very little redress if anything should go wrong. At the very least, you should get a signed agreement, which sets out the service that will be provided and has clear contact details for who you’re dealing with.

You may also choose to appeal straight away and also concurrently renegotiate a different design and submit it as a new ‘free go’ planning application at the same time. If this redesign is refused, the appeal for the original application is still running. This is not something planning officers like nor is it something we would recommend but nevertheless, as even simple planning applications with some authorities can take up to 12 months to determine, an appeal may well be your quickest route to a decision.

Choosing an established quality removal company who are members of the British Association of Removers (BAR) will minimise the risks, and your stress levels on the day”.

Of course, every situation is different and we would usually recommend making use of the Pre-Application process to minimise the likelihood of a refusal being issued.

Do you have a question for Steve? Send it to steve.webber@maidmans.com or use the contact details below

It is important that you discuss all options with your Architect before deciding which is the best route for you to take, as each application is unique.

NUVUW

FOSIG R N FR UP EE

TALKING BUSINESS

Take the stress out of property development It all starts with an idea. Whether this is your first property development, or renovation project, or your 70th, every project always starts with the idea and vision of what you want it to look like. However, it’s not always easy to take your ideas and articulate them to a third party. That’s where NuVuw’s 2D and 3D design studio comes into play. Whether you are building a new property from scratch, adding an extension or renovating an existing space, you need the ability to (simply) bring the design vision that’s in your head to life. We spoke with software and property developer Lawrence Rankin, to find out how his NuVuw (the latest in home improvement software) can make a huge different to designing, developing and collaborating on property ventures.

FOCUS ON DESIGN New to NuVuw? Let’s start by capturing your design style using NuVuw’s unique Design and Collaboration Tool: Use ‘Design Books’ within the tool to capture all the things you like and visualise for your project. Simply capture images, plans and notes of your existing space, and include the ideas that inspire and excite you. It might just be small details—like a set of taps used in a bathroom design—or it could be as elaborate as an entire kitchen you have seen in a magazine, but by building your Design Book with these little visual details, you start

Visit NuVuw at the Home Building & Renovation Show at the NEC. 22 - 25 March, Stand G153

to form a clear view of the style you want to create for your space, and this becomes even more important when collaborating with designers, architects and tradespeople to help get a more accurate quote. Next, model your ideas in 2D/3D: Bring your ideas to life with NuVuw’s simple-to-use 2D/3D design tools. Build and create a new property from scratch, or recreate and model your existing home, room, or office space. Take a virtual tour of your new setting in 3D before deciding the final layout. You can also decorate your walls and floors in any colour, furnish your rooms from a catalogue of over 3,000 products, and take a HD snapshot to see a near real-life view of your space. Then, collaborate with Architects and Designers: Should you find you’ve run out of ideas and want the best possible design, or you just need professional advice, you can collaborate with architects, interior designers, and specialists through the platform. Use the collaboration option to get quotes

for the design phase, or full project services within your budget.

ABOUT NuVuw Born out of the trials and tribulations of a keen property developer, NuVuw is an all-encompassing design and management tool for property developers, managers, renovators, and tradespeople alike. Lawrence Rankin (founder, NuVuw) explains: “Using all the knowledge I had gleaned from my past experiences in property development I have built into NuVuw all the tools and technology required to remove the stress from property developments and renovations. Real solutions to everyday property development headaches that you can start benefiting from today.” Find out more by visiting <www.nuvuw.com>.

LONDON BOAT SHOW Coleman Insurance Brokers catches up with some key players in the marine sector A newly formatted London Boat Show took place from Wednesday 10th January to Sunday 14th January at the ExCel in London. This is an event which kicks off the 2018 European boating calendar and marks the start of the season. There were a host of celebrities, many stunning boats to impress and glittering sporting silverware to wow visitors. Coleman Insurance Brokers, which always has a strong presence at the Show, was represented by their Marine Team. Tony Pauffley, Manager, Yacht & Commercial Craft at Coleman commented, “It’s great to be back at the Boat Show and, as always, our team took time out to chat with many of the exhibitors at ExCel.” Tony commented, “The insurance market is experiencing a period of adjustment following the hurricanes in 2017 which resulted in large losses for insurers. As brokers, this has put our services in high demand and we’ve been super busy at the Show as we can add so much value to clients by shopping our markets and obtaining the correct cover at a competitive price. It’s been great chatting to many of our existing clients and potential new clients.” Tony continued, “We’re looking forward to a positive and busy 2018. We enjoyed a record year in 2017, which was 18% up on an already successful 2016.”

SUNSEEKER RIDES ON THE CREST OF A WAVE Sunseeker CEO Phil Popham met with Tony Pauffley and chatted positively about the firm’s current standing in the market and how Brexit had helped fuel “very, very strong growth”. Phil enthused, “We have our strongest order book ever, going in to 2018 with 25% of planned volume sold for 2019. It’s a good place to be. We’ve invested heavily in the last 3 years and have increased revenue by 50% and our employee base by 25%. We currently have 2500 employees but with expansion plans we are actively looking to recruit up to 100 additional staff. “In 2017 we took on a record number of apprentices and we are looking to do the same in 2018. We currently have a total of 115 apprentices.” PRINCESS YACHTS – DOUBLE DIGIT SALES Kiran Haslam, Marketing Director, Princess Yachts enthused, “This year’s London Boat Show was a great success for Princess, with visitors, our VIP clients and the industry responding favourably to the new shortened show format. The show organisers brought a renewed energy to the Excel, and we were delighted to exceed doubledigit sales onsite during the show and to see a strong footfall over all 5 days. Congratulations to the team involved, and it’s a great start to 2018 for Princess and the industry as a whole.”

BANG & OLUFSEN Kevin Dawson, MD of Bournemouth based Bang & Olufsen Dawsons, a regular of the Show advised, “I’ve enjoyed meeting up with Pearl Motor Yachts who we are working closely with. They have instructed us to install B&O audio on a Pearl 80 Yacht. Boat Shows are always good for networking and staying connected to key people in the marine industry.” SHOWCASING A 400-500 HORSEPOWER MARINE PROPULSION ENGINE… Steve Reeves, Account Manager for Poole based Finning UK, reported a positive presence at the Show. Finning UK are the Caterpillar dealer for the UK. Steve said, “We are regulars at all the UK boat shows. This week we are show-casing our new engine C7.1 which is a 400-500 horse-power marine propulsion engine. The type of buyers that we attract are boat owners likely to have an engineering background with a good understanding and knowledge of marine engines. The latest model has an advanced fuel system which makes it a lot quieter than much of the competition.”

IT’S A FAMILY AFFAIR…. Richard Bates, David and Freddie DeVere of Bates Wharf Marine Sales certainly had the claim of the largest presence at the Boat Show in terms of volumes of boats on display. Richard said, “We are offering the whole package for our clients, starting from the Bayliner up to the Beneteau Outboards. We are integrating people into boating and getting them hooked to our brands right from the start. “We are one of the greatest adverts for showcasing boats at the London Boat Show. We have 25 boats here which is an investment which will reap rewards in time. The Show is essential to us to meet potential new clients, have conversations and create and ultimately fulfil a marine enthusiast’s dream.” D’BEERE YACHT CONNECTING AT THE BOAT SHOW Debbie Beere, Director and founder of D’Beere Yacht caught up with Tony Pauffley and advised, “It’s really good to be here as a team, to meet up with our colleagues within the industry, many of whom we’ve known for many years. It’s good to get our brand name out there and noticed, to look at the new products on the market and to keep in touch.” PICTURED ABOVE: Steven Risk, Jonathan Purvis, Andrew Skinner, Tony Pauffley, Andy Coles, Amy Houldsworth, Coleman Insurance Brokers PICTURED FAR LEFT: Tony Pauffley and Phil Popham, Sunseeker PICTURED TOP LEFT: Sir Geoff Hurst, Andy and Jonathan PICTURED MIDDLE LEFT: Tony Pauffley Coleman Insurance Brokers, Debbie Beere, Jon Ford and Lucy Etches D’Beere PICTURED BOTTOM LEFT: Steve Reeves Finning UK

Experience what it’s like to live with dementiA Great Oaks care home in Bournemouth is opening its doors to invite the community to experience what it is like to live with dementia, thanks to a revolutionary training course.

Great Oaks is the brand new residential, nursing and dementia care home in Bournemouth. Managed by Encore, it is situated in a beautiful, peaceful woodland setting. It is the third care home in the South of England from Encore, which specialises in modern, purpose-built, private care homes. Encore is becoming known as a dementia resource for the community by hosting a groundbreaking experience for a healthy brain to experience what it can be like to live with dementia.

Great Oaks offers the Virtual Dementia Tour, which uses specially designed clothing, equipment and sounds to simulate the effect of living with mid-range Alzheimer’s. The care home in Bournemouth has hosted this event for local healthcare professionals and support groups to continue to raise awareness and challenge thinking about the illness. Great Oaks is also offering this same opportunity to the community to take part in the Virtual Dementia Tour in February. Encore Care Homes, the care group that also manages Fairmile Grange in Christchurch, believes that the Virtual Dementia Tour training helps to further improve the care we all want to provide to people living with dementia.

The course, run by Training 2 Care, is the only medically and scientifically proven method for a healthy brain to encounter what dementia is truly like.

The Virtual Dementia Tour has been experienced by 1.2 million people in 17 different countries across the world but is relatively new in the UK.

Operations & Quality Director of Encore, Izzy Nicholls, says:

Izzy added that all Encore staff undertake the training as part of their in-depth induction programme, which ensures all staff within each home provide the very best care.

“Dementia is not only about memory loss, it deprives all the senses and can severely affect vision, hearing and touch creating a world of fear and confusion. The Virtual Dementia Tour changes the way both healthcare professionals and family members think about dementia and helps to support them in communicating and connecting with their loved one. This is a truly ground-breaking course that allows you to empathise with the feelings and sensations someone experiences when they are living with the condition.”

Great Oaks is holding the Virtual Dementia Tour on Tuesday 13th February. This is a special, free event and bookings will be open to the local community. The experience lasts approximately 2.5 hours and places are limited. To book your place on the Virtual Dementia Tour, visit: dementiatour.greatoaksbournemouth.co.uk or call Great Oaks: 01202 087 444

COMMUNITY OPEN DAY 21st February, 10am – 2pm

Call: 01202 087 444 or visit: www.greatoaksbournemouth.co.uk

Pop in for a cup of tea and take a look around our fantastic modern facilities and landscaped garden. EVERYONE WELCOME!


HOLIDAY HOME OWNERSHIP

PRICE OF FLATS IN BLOCKS THAT PROHIBIT HOLIDAY LETTING SET TO FALL Tax changes and the new accommodation platforms mean restrictive lease conditions are starting to hit valuations There are a few blocks of flats in Parkstone that don’t allow any letting at all, an experiment from a different era. The concept was that knowing your neighbours would only ever be owner occupiers would make the properties more exclusive and enhance the value. To this day the rules are vigorously enforced by residents and an owner who even goes away for a few months and lets a friend live in his apartment will hear from the residents association in short order. Time has shown that the enthusiasm for the rules from a small cadre of buyers has been far outweighed by excluding investors from purchasing in the blocks and instead of carrying a premium the flats trade at 10-20% less than comparable properties without the restrictions. During the last few property booms the discounts grew even more as buy to let investors stoked the market for flats and Ashley Cross developed into an attractive area to live for just the sort of young people who want to rent. Many of the blocks on the Sandbanks peninsula and along the shoreline towards Bournemouth were built around the same time when the world was a very different place. As I creep towards the line of being nearer 60 than 50 it’s really hard to understand just how different the mindset was of the same generation 30 or 40 years ago. I remember when it was announced that the retirement age for

ambulance drivers was to be raised from 60 to 65 the union pointed out that more than 50% of their members would die before receiving it. Potential purchasers then were often retirees who at 60-65 had a mindset that they were moving to quietly live out their final years. At the same time holidaymakers coming to Sandbanks and especially Bournemouth were ‘bucket and spaders’ going self catering to save money and the perception was they might be noisy and have uncontrolled kids running around at all hours. It’s understandable that many developers chose to specify no holiday letting in the lease and to this day an estate agent showing you a flat will sell the restriction as a benefit- ‘At least you won’t bump into someone with an ice cream coming up the stairs!’ As we head towards 2020 I could write a book on all the things that have changed but what’s really significant is the tax changes for both investors and people with second homes. The restriction on mortgage interest relief for buy to let investors is a massive and fundamental change in property investment taxation but phasing it in over 4 years was a stroke of genius on the government’s part as the new rules are gradually biting without a fuss being made. Holiday lets are thankfully exempt from this change. Second home owners and buy to let investors now typically pay capital gains at 28% on sale compared with

10% for a holiday let, which can also qualify for small business rate relief to avoid council tax. Another big development has been the meteoric rise of Airbnb and other accommodation platforms encouraging many more second home owners to dip their toe into short term letting and with the costs of buying or renting so expensive in this area there is even a new generation coming who are factoring income from letting part or all of their property when working out how to afford their new home. Finally there has been a surge in demand for serviced lets- shorter stays in furnished accommodation that are not for a holiday. This is a fast growing part of our business with people staying Mon-Fri who are working away from home or 2-3 months whilst in between houses, having an extension built, fixing flood damage or a multitude of other reasons. No holiday letting clauses normally specify minimum 6 month tenancies so also exclude this sort of opportunity. Every week I speak to potential new owners and if they are looking at buying in Sandbanks the first thing they need to find out is which blocks allow holiday letting. Property investors being hit by the tax changes may look at switching to holiday letting but if their block doesn’t allow this their only options are to pay the extra tax or sell.

I’m certainly not a trained economist but reducing demand for a property by restricting it’s investment potential and increasing supply by forcing investors to sell is inevitably going to put downward pressure on prices. It may be that there’s an actual reduction or it could be that there’s a more subtle difference in price growth but as the tax changes come into full effect we are bound to see properties with short let restrictions trading at a discount.

MUVA PROPERTY GURUS Bournemouth’s Newest Estate Agent with a difference.

44

MUVA Property Gurus are new estate agent in Bournemouth offering a fresh new approach to selling homes.

in selling their home, and are on hand to help from valuation to handing over the keys.

MUVA Property Gurus are Bournemouth’s top estate agents. The team at MUVA have sold thousands of homes and have many years’ experience in getting the best price for their customers homes. MUVA are a different type of estate agent, that equip home sellers with data and guidance throughout the whole sales process.

With homes listed on Rightmove and Zoopla, they guarantee that vendors’ homes will be found by the 95% of buyers that carry out their property search online. With MUVA, vendors will have the data to know what else is selling, why it’s selling, and where in the process your sale is.

For just £849, sellers are teamed up with a Local Estate Agent, and given access to a unique platform that gives them access to all of the data previously retained internally by Estate Agents. Unlike other traditional and online agents, MUVA Property Gurus are committed to helping sellers understand their local market to achieve the best possible outcome

The MUVA Property Gurus have on average 17 years’ experience selling homes, and have joined from wellknown estate agents in Bournemouth, Ferndown, Ringwood and surrounding areas such as Countrywide. Paul Cullingford, Property Director at Muva said “Our Property Gurus have market leading knowledge in the local area and understand why buyers in Ferndown are motivated differently to

those in Winton. Our Gurus add realtime updates and data on what’s going on in the local market, so home sellers can make informed decisions.”

MUVA’S 2018 PROPERTY FORECAST The recent changes to Stamp Duty and Tax Relief on Buy To Let mortgages are likely to influence the property market in 2018 in Bournemouth, here is MUVA’s take on what this may mean for the market this year.

1 

Buy To Let tax relief on mortgage removal is rolled out - opening up supply of flats While not everyone will be affected, we are expecting to see some exits of the marketplace as profit margins are reduced, and in some cases, wiped out entirely. The good news is that if you’re a serial Buy To Let landlord in Bournemouth

with steady yields, we have seen fewer inexperienced investors entering the market, deterred by the increased stamp duty surcharge, leaving the market dominated by serious players. For example, if a higher-rate payer currently sees £10,000 income a year and has mortgage interest payments of £9,000, the resulting tax bill on the difference will currently be just £400. By 2020, that bill will rise to £2,200.

2 

First Time Buyer Demand is already increasing If you’re considering selling your property, there is great news particularly for owners of flats that make perfect starter homes. According to Hometrack, firsttime buyers will overtake existing homeowners to become the largest buyer group this year, accounting for a 35% share of all sales.


TALKING BUSINESS

Paul Cullingford

The change to the stamp duty threshold for first time buyers below £300,000 also means that the savings first time buyers will have been working towards now gets them more for their money, and they will be entering the market more quickly than they may have planned to.

3 

…So those with “First Time Buyer Friendly” properties will make a decision to sell their property, soon The Government predicts that the stamp duty changes will help up to 95% of first time buyers in England, Wales and Northern Ireland and up to 80% in London. The new relief has been introduced from November 22nd 2017. We expect first time buyer activity to increase significantly in January 2018 and throughout Q1.

We expect that landlords who own flats and smaller properties, ideal for starter homes will feel the impact of the Buy To Let taxation changes, and decide to list their properties close to April 2018 to minimise their tax liability for tax year 2018/2019.

homeowners have the same idea and the market is flooded with supply. Find out how MUVA can sell your property for just £849 fee. Book a free valuation today with a MUVA Property Guru at a time to suit you on the MUVA website WWW.MUVA.ME

MUVA’S TOP TIP FOR PROPERTY INVESTORS IN 2018: Back in 2016 Bournemouth saw a spike in flat sales sparked by the stamp duty changes for second property owners – the 3% surcharge on second property purchases. As Bournemouth has a consistently high rental demand and high rental yields, property investors rushed to invest. Will this recent history repeat itself? As a seller the key to selling your property quickly and for the best price is getting in quick to hit the demand surge before other landlords/

ADVANCE CLADDING & BUILDING It’s no secret that we at House get to speak with a plethora of locals tradesmen and independent businesses, and we make it our mission to tell their own unique stories in the hopes of giving our readers a real insight into the individuals behind the companies they know—or need to know—and love. With that, allow us to introduce ‘Advance Cladding and Building’, your local cladding specialists. Here’s our interview with Owner and Operator Martin Edwards. HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN IN BUSINESS? “Officially, three months. But my heart (and family) has been in this business for as long as I can remember. My father previously owned the company for almost three decades. As a boy, I would go with him to site to watch the master at work. I’d hear how kindly and enthusiastically he spoke with customers and the other tradesmen; he really loved his work. So it was a natural progression for me to take over the family business and make my own unique mark on it, whilst

following my father’s stellar example, values and work ethic.” WHAT IS IT ABOUT THIS INDUSTRY THAT YOU ENJOY THE MOST? “I take a lot of pride in my work and feel that customers deserve the best service without being constantly rushed. Having been sub-contracting for the past 7 years, for various big cladding companies who’s ethics are based primarily on profit alone, I now intend to provide a professional, bespoke side of the cladding industry and beat the majority of my competitors not only on price, but with quality workmanship.” ASIDE FROM AESTHETICS, WHY MIGHT SOMEONE ADD CLADDING TO THEIR HOME? First and foremost, property is–and continues to be–a wise investment, ergo anything you can do to improve it is a wise investment. Secondly cladding has the benefit of added insulation, which in the long-run means reduced energy bills and potentially big savings. Finally, more

and more homeowners are opting for older homes that they can renovate (even in a small way) and sell on for profit—a great idea in this economy, but not without its problems. Many older homes framework’s crumble over time and cladding is a surefire way of protecting exterior walls.

WHAT’S THE MOST POPULAR TYPE OF CLADDING? Cement Fibre Board is the most popular, with UPVC coming in a close second. 100% recycled eco-composite cladding is going to be the future, both in-terms of design and the health and safety of our planet.

HOW DO YOU ENSURE THE QUALITY OF EACH AND EVERY JOB? Each and everyone of our team is fully up-to-scratch with the exacting fitting guidelines, and we make it our business to ensure that our knowledge is as upto-date as possible by attending regular courses—and receiving coveted awards in the process.

WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR COMPANY VALUES? Definitely Fair Trade; I’m particularly passionate about that. Karma, in the sense of what goes around comes around—ergo we aim to always be honest, kind, and considerate…but above all, excellent customer service. WHAT MAKES YOU DIFFERENT FROM YOUR COMPETITORS? Our professionalism; we love hearing feedback about how quick and easy our process is, and that is ultimately down to our experience and dedication to each and every job. I’ve mentioned being extremely competitive on price already, but I really do mean it; we try to keep our margins as little as possible. Finally (and most importantly) we are always honest. If a job is going to take 3 weeks, that’s because it will; if we have priced a job, that is a true reflection of the cost and work to be done. I UNDERSTAND YOU ALSO HAVE LINKS TO OTHER HIGHLY SKILLED TRADESMEN? Yes, we work along side SDH Carpentry and Building, WDH Electrical, ADS Gas and Heating, AP Roofing and AB Home Improvements; so that we can offer our clients trusted tradesmen in other departments.

COMMERCIAL ASK THE EXPERT…

HOW TO ACHIEVE WHAT YOU WANT! I have been working with energy healing for many years, and I never cease to be amazed by the magic of this wonderful process of helping people to heal from the inside out.

R E TA I L

We all carry around unwanted ‘stress’ in our bodies - those negative thoughts, feelings and emotions which we absorb on a daily basis throughout our lives, including frustration, anger, fear, guilt, anxiety, sadness, hopelessness, despair, shame ... the list goes on. So many people come to me feeling ‘stuck’ and unable to move forward. This feeling may relate to their home life, work, relationships, or simply that they don’t know what their next step should be. My work focuses on accessing any negative thoughts, feelings and emotions that are holding you back - keeping you stuck. Sometimes these may be sub-conscious self-limiting beliefs that you’re not even aware of, which may have been with you since childhood. Using a combination of processes, including Reiki energy healing, life guidance and self-expression through art and other media, it’s possible to access these blockages and release them, thus removing the heaviness inside that can make you feel ‘weighed down’, and unable to move forward.

ARCHITECTURAL

DOMESTIC

Over the coming 12 issues I will be focusing on some of the things that stop us from achieving our goals, such as Stress, Fear, Guilt, Depression, Anger, Self-Doubt and Grief - to name but a few.

TALKING BUSINESS

PROTECT THE THINGS THAT MATTER MOST No-one really likes to consider bad things happening, but if you were to be injured, unable to work or lose your job, how would you manage to pay your mortgage and your cost of living bills? Local company Homeline Protect may have the answer, by offering you the opportunity to review what type of cover you have in place (if any), and to help you assess means of protecting your income in unforeseen circumstances. Kirsty Adams, Protection Adviser at Homeline Protect said “We always advise our clients to consider their position if they were unable to work for whatever reason. It’s worth

thinking about how you would cover your outgoings and maintain your lifestyle. Also, do you have adequate life insurance cover in place that would enable your family to cope financially should the very worst happen?” Homeline Protect is part of the Homeline Mortgages group, and works with mortgage and nonmortgage clients to advise them on protection cover. Kirsty added, “Most of us are on a budget, and I often hear people say ‘can I afford it?’. Our response is ‘can you afford not to have it’? Like any form of insurance, you hope the need never arises to use it, but when

bad things happen it’s a huge relief to know you have adequate cover in place and the things that matter to you most, like your family and your home, are protected.” Income protection is an insurance policy that protects you against loss of income due to unemployment, illness or accident. At Homeline Protect they have access to all major insurance providers, including many of the main high street names that you would be familiar with. The benefits of working with Homeline Protect include the fact that they will do the research on

your behalf, and identify the most suitable policy on the market to match your needs. “We are regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (565780) which gives you added reassurance that we are giving you the highest quality professional advice. At Homeline, we also provide our customers with a very high level of support; researching products, managing all the paperwork and making it as stress free as possible for you.” commented Kirsty. “A meeting with us, and arranging protection will hopefully be a fairly seamless process and provide you with valuable peace of mind.”

Readers of HOUSE can book a free, no-obligation protection review. To book an appointment with Kirsty, call 01202 937444 (quote HOUSE PROTECT). www.homelinemortgages.co.uk A fee may be charged should you proceed with a Mortgage or Protection application. Please ask your adviser for further details. Your home may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments. PICTURED LEFT: Kirsty Adams

The best feature however, has to be the stunning scenery and idyllic location. A mere stones throw away is the beach, and a boat ride further is the iconic Purbecks, all of which can be taken in from the comfort of the shared ground floor garden. “Aah”, I chimed breathing in the enriching sea air, but my trancelike state was short-lived, interrupted with a single question from Lucy, “Are you ready to see the penthouse?”; and off we went, wide-eyed into the lift and up to the 74

DREAMHOME

Lucy took us to the bottom of the stairs and asked that we treat our return as if we were seeing it for the first time. Walking up those stairs, our anticipation was growing and when we did arrive, it was a deeper satisfaction seeing it all over again; I suppose the slight challenge made us want it that bit more. With much resistance we made our way out, and headed back to our own realities. I can easily see why a number of the apartments have already been sold or have had serious interest. My advice? See it for yourself.

Q: What have the Harbourwood Homes team been up to over the last couple of months? DEAN: “Well, we’ve just finished our latest site so everyone’s really excited to see the end result. We’re now moving onto our next; a fourbed, detached new build. We’ve submitted three new lots of planning, one of which is a nine-unit scheme in Ferndown so that’s great news!”

TALKING PROPERTY DEVELOPMENT WITH...

We interviewed Harbourwood Homes owners Steve Courtney and Dean Gaffikin, at the beginning of their incredible journey into the world of property development. Now, upon the competition of their first big site, we are meeting with them again to see how the company has changed, and why their outside the box approach to the industry is sure to shake things up.

development. We want to be on top of everything, because if you slack off for just a moment you loose months of precious time.” STEVE: “For the last 20 years or so, a lot of the homes that are being built are pretty much the same, but the feedback that we’ve got is that our style is really unique. It would be amazing to think that that style could be the next big trend in terms of design, and moreover the quality of the build”.

TALKING BUSINESS

MONOCHROME MASTERCLASS Through their blend of quality bespoke craftsmanship with exquisite finishes, Amirez is fast becoming the ‘go to’ developer for those seeking the ultimate in luxury living. Dodeca, forged from their collaboration with Jigsaw Interior Architecture, proves that creating the best interiors is sometimes black and white. Before the close of 2017 we were fortunate to have a preview of one of the most prestigious, contemporary developments on the market in Sandbanks. This trio of imposing town houses, Hedra, Tetra and Dodeca, which sit at the end of a private driveway on exclusive Evening Hill, were designed by award winning architects Anders Roberts Cheer. It came as no surprise to hear that one of the three had sold almost immediately. On my return I was granted an exclusive tour of Dodeca, the last

of the town houses to come onto the market. Providing the ultimate in luxury living, Dodeca has an essentially monochromatic colour palette, with a contemporary façade which contrasts exterior finishes of natural stone, smooth crisp render, matte black window frames and grey timber cladding in an arresting geometric, textural contrast. The sumptuous and breathtakingly stylish interior is the result of a long standing and proven collaboration between Amirez and Jigsaw Interior Architecture; a dream design partnership which marries bespoke design with supreme build quality. This duo’s portfolio is a perfect example of form and function working in harmony at the very highest level. In Dodeca the versatile accommodation is arranged over four floors, with terraces and serviced by a lift (finished in opulent dark leather);

and from the sun room at the top, through the master bedroom on the second floor, to the first floor’s kitchen/ living/dining space, all are blessed with spectacular views over Poole Harbour, the Sandbanks peninsula, Brownsea Island and the Purbeck hills beyond. Natasha Stynes, Jigsaw’s lead Interior Designer on the project, knew that when working with Amirez there wouldn’t be any compromising when it came to design concepts or with the quality of materials available to her. She relished this opportunity to freely realise an entirely bespoke and exceptionally finished scheme. Similarly, with Jigsaw’s involvement right at the early planning stages, Amirez were confident that they would deliver a property in which the future home owner could enjoy an optimised layout affording them a sense of spaciousness, comfort and luxury. It is this union of aesthetics with enjoyment of use through considered design, which sets Dodeca apart from other more ‘off the shelf’ counterparts.

Certain interior architectural elements are featured throughout the three properties in the development, such as the bespoke, black oiled oak

natural granite and marble worktops which sit in solid, chunky, sleek slabs against dark grey handleless cabinetry. In Dodeca the sun room, kitchen and island countertops are hewn from a single slab of luxurious and richly veined Arabescato marble.

Feature lighting from Flos is complimented by Jigsawâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own recessed lighting design features in the kitchens and on the staircases.

Ultimately it is the combination of an assured build quality from Amirez, with Jigsawâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s meticulous eye for detail that has created an outstanding property, which although inherently luxurious, is also fresh and stylish too.

doors with vertical, linear detail, Italian kitchens, designer tiling imported from Spain and Philippe Starck hardware in the bathrooms. However, each house has additionally been designed with individual finishes giving it its own personality and style. In Dodeca you are always conscious of the connection the house has to the outdoors and its spectacular surroundings; from the swathes of natural light coming in through the vast areas of glass, to the sea views from its exceptional spacious roof terrace off the fourth floor sun room and a gorgeous external spiral staircase which allows access from the first floor living space to the generous garden. In the interior there is a distinctly monochrome look, yet the home remains warm and inviting, with chic, blackened oak treads on the staircases juxtaposed with the crispness of the plastered walls. In the bathrooms, glamorous ebony and white marble tiling is given a funky twist in herringbone patterns with the contrasting colourways used to create a stylish, graphic effect. All three houses have bespoke kitchens, furnished with Miele appliances and finished with luxurious

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

SUPPORT FOR MORTGAGE INTEREST SWITCHING TO LOANS FROM APRIL 2018 From the 5th April 2018, those claiming SMI (Support for Mortgage Interest), will no longer be able to claim it as a free benefit. There are approximately 124,000 UK homeowners currently receiving SMI to help pay the mortgage interest on their homes, if they are also in receipt of certain income-related benefits such as Jobseekers Allowance and Pensions Credit. Of the 124,000 SMI claimants. Around 57,000 are of Pension Credit qualifying age, while 67,000 are working age. The most vulnerable are the older borrowers as many took out interest-only mortgages before the financial crisis in 2008. After April any SMI payments will only be paid as loan which will need to be repaid to the government with interest when the property is sold, transferred into new ownership or on the death of the recipient or their partner. It will be repaid from proceeds after the outstanding mortgage is paid off. If there are insufficient funds to repay the SMI loan, the government will write it off. The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) started sending letters out to those affected in October 2017, advising that they could either choose to take up the loan option or stop receiving the support. Although, the DWP do acknowledge they have not written to everyone! As of 22 January 2018, only 6,850 claimants have agreed to take up the loan with a further 18,177 saying they might take up the loan option. SMI hit the headlines last year when the government announced from 18th June 2017 they would be reducing the interest payable on the loan from 3.12% to 2.61%, the rate being the predicted Bank of England’s average mortgage rate and not on the individual interest rate. This would have caused more hardship to those who had a higher interest rate and those trapped in negative equity who have been unable to take advantage of new competitive deals. A £100,000 loan would be looking at £217.50 per month interest payments. Further information can be accesses by the government website https://www.gov.uk/support-for-mortgage-interest

OUTDOOR LIVING

RELAX OUTDOORS During these colder months we still like to make the most of our outdoor space and it is a great time to start getting our gardens ready for the warmer weather. We offer a range of furniture and bespoke options, so you can enjoy your garden all year round. All of our products are made from 100% recycled plastic. We manufacture products ourselves and then sell direct to the Domestic and Commercial sector. Due to ever increasing importance to recycle and protect the environment, the plastic used is recycled in the UK and is the perfect alternative to wood. Our aims are to help rebuild the environment by utilising a commodity, which people would otherwise just throw away, and so turn what to some would be rubbish into a valuable product for everybody.

FINANCIAL BENEFITS Achieving value for money is a key driver for any purchasing

decision. Although

some

recycled

products have a greater up-front cost, their longevity and durability make them a more cost-effective option over the long term. Our products have many practical and very useful properties and has an infinite range of different uses, some of which being are as decking, fencing, outdoor furniture, planters, boardwalks, landscaping, bollards, signage and construction etc. The list of possibilities is endless and the longterm advantages it has over traditional materials are staggering! Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great investment, as it never needs to be replaced due to its high strength and durability, therefore it quickly pays for itself in the long run. In short, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worry free!

ABOUT US The concept of Reformed Plastics was born nearly 20 years ago from the curiosity of its founder. Being an engineer by profession, and having had his own UPVC Windows business, and also being the practical and inquisitive person that he is, one day he decided to find out what was really happening to the waste that people were so freely throwing away. His research and interest lead him to focus on plastics, how it can be recycled and what it could 122

be reused for.


OUTDOOR LIVING

He discovered that the USA and a few European countries had been recycling and remanufacturing waste plastics into alternative timber products for many years, instead of throwing it into landfill and the ocean! Over time, slowly but surely he developed a few basic products in the form of planks and posts and very soon he began to receive interest from people wanting to know more about this revolutionary product, that is both an environmentally friendly alternative to normal timber and sustainable which means it will save them a lot of money in the long term! From then on, the rest as they say is history.

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

WHY ARE RECYCLED PLASTIC PRODUCTS DIFFERENT? Plastic lumber is the perfect alternative to anything that has ever needed maintaining. Plastic lumber can be cut with a regular saw, drilled, nailed or screwed into and routed as easily as wood. • Resistant to extreme weather • Will not rot, split or splinter • Will not need painting or staining • Is wear resistant • Resistant to vandalism • Resistant to salt water • Resistant to chemicals • Resistant to insects and bacteria • Anti-slip decking • Lasts for over 50 years

• Quality Decking, Fencing & Furniture. • 100% Recycled Plastic. • Can be worked with like wood. • Does not rot, split or splinter. • Strong, Durable & Weather Resistant. • Maintenance Free & lasts over 40 years! • Local, Friendly Family run business. • Unique, High Quality Personal Service. • Nationwide Delivery.

MOTORING

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

TOP SCORE FOR BMW X3 The new BMW X3 has received top scores in the Euro NCAP crash test. The third generation SAV secured all five stars and passed with flying colours in each category. According to the report, the protection of adult occupants travelling within the vehicle was rated 93 per cent. Euro NCAP experts, commented: “The passenger compartment of the X3 remained stable in the frontal offset test. BMW showed that a similar level of protection would be provided to occupants of different sizes and to those sat in different positions.” For the protection of children on-board the BMW X3, the testers provided a rating of 84 per cent and the pedestrian protection was rated at 70 per cent. The BMW X3 thrived during the testing at low speeds and thanks to the City Braking function and at higher speeds, the systems contributed to a noticeably reduced impact speed and were able to significantly mitigate the consequences of accidents.

ROAD TEST: FORD KA+ ZETEC The Ford Ka+ is a more spacious version of the earlier Ka , and is based on a Fiesta platform which gives it a practical edge over more cramped city-car rivals, writes NICK FLETCHER. It seats five occupants, has decent boot space, and with prices from £9,795 can compete with smaller city runabouts such as Peugeot 108, Citroen C1 and Toyota Aygo. All Ka+ models get a 69 hp 1.2 litre petrol engine though an 83 hp unit is optional on Zetec versions and both have 5-speed manual transmission. The smaller engine has a 0-60 mph time of 15.3 seconds, top speed of 99 mph and emissions of 114 g/km. Fuel economy is 56.5 mpg combined. On the road, the Ka+ drives smoothly and while its 0-60 mph time of just over 15 seconds looks slow on paper, it really doesn’t feel seem that slow in actual use and has a nice easy feel to it which makes it a pleasure to drive, particularly on urban streets. With improved springs and dampers and a stiffer front anti-roll bar, the Ka+ rides and handles well and

extra sound-proofing helps it seem more refined than main rivals. Standard kit on the entry Studio model is rather limited but does include electric front windows and mirrors, Bluetooth/ USB and a device to enable mobile phone connectivity. The Zetec test model, at £10,795, is the likely choice of 8 out of 10 buyers says Ford. It adds desirable features such as alloy wheels, air-conditioning, cruise control, DAB radio and enhanced connectivity. The Ka+ cabin looks good, taking styling cues from the Fiesta, and trim materials look better quality than in most city cars. A taller roof line ensures good headroom and the boot space at 273 litres is among biggest in the class, expandable to 849 litres with rear seats down. There are also 21 different storage places for small items, a bonus for family usage. Overall, the Ka+ proves to be a very pleasing small hatchback offering more interior space than most in its class and with smooth driving dynamics.

BENTLEY BENTAYGA V8

124

The Bentley is now available in its most sporting guise to date – the Bentayga V8. On UK sale in March, it is priced from £136,200. At the heart of the latest Bentayga model is a new-generation 4.0-litre, twin-turbocharged V8 petrol engine which develops 542 hp and delivers a top speed of 180 mph and 0-60 mph in 4.4 seconds. Fuel consumption is 24.8 mpg combined. The engine can de-activate four of its eight cylinders in suitable conditions, without compromising the drive. The seamless change happens in just 20 milliseconds, making it imperceptible to the driver. New styling features include a wood and hide steering wheel and the introduction of a high-gloss carbon-fibre interior panel finish. The Bentayga’s 8-inch touch screen infotainment system boasts a 60GB hard drive, and a choice of up to 30 languages. Rear seat passengers benefit from the introduction of the Bentley Entertainment Tablet – a removable 10.2-inch Android device with 4G, WiFi and Bluetooth for high-speed on-board connectivity.


MOTORING

NEW MINI MODELS

ROAD TEST: VOLVO S90 D4 INSCRIPTION With the growing popularity of hatchbacks, SUVs and estate cars, the market for saloons has vastly reduced in recent years, writes NICK FLETCHER. The market for luxury saloons is even smaller – less than one per cent of the overall UK car market – but it is still an important sector served by brands such as Mercedes-Benz, Audi, BMW and Jaguar. And Volvo, of course. The Swedish manufacturer brings a fresh look and sophistication to the sector with its latest S90, with particular emphasis on extensive equipment and safety features, and driving refinement. The Volvo S90 I tested is the largest saloon in the company’s line-up and prices start at £33,865, though my test model was a mid-range D4 Inscription version priced at £37,115. Powered by a 2.0 litre 190 hp diesel engine with 8-speed auto gearbox, it has a quick 0-60 mph time of 7.9 seconds and a top speed of 140 mph. Combined fuel consumption is 64.2 mpg and emissions are 116 g/km.

There is plenty of room for five adults, and the 500-litre boot is more than adequate for normal requirements.The cabin – described by Volvo as ‘a sanctuary’ - has a cooler, more modern look than most rivals, a significant factor in an image-conscious sector. Latest styling gives the S90 a sleek, distinctive, more elegant appearance than some of its German opposition and while not quite as agile as some, it is smooth,quiet and effortless in overall driving. Standard kit includes heated leather seats, large touchscreen infotainment system with sat-nav and connectivity,18inch alloy wheels and arguably best-in-class safety equipment which includes various crash-prevention features including roadside animal detection and Pilot Assist, a semi-autonomous system which aids acceleration, braking and lane-keeping. Volvo aims to bring new vision to the traditional luxury saloon class, offering more svelte, more intelligent and more innovative styling. With the S90, it has certainly succeeded.

MINI models for 2018 benefit from new technology and enhanced connectivity across the 3-door and 5-door hatchback models and the MINI Convertible. MINI says the changes are “focused on driver appeal and core new technologies”, including MINI Connected Concierge services, wireless smartphone charging and first-in-class options such as new anti-dazzle adaptive headlights with Matrix high beam. Standard-fit front and rear LED lights also feature on the new models, which are available in March. The LED lamps have a stronger, brighter light. All new MINIs come with a six-speed manual gearbox as standard, but a 7-speed Steptronic transmission with double clutch is available as an option. The MINI customisation programme now includes new products whose design can be created by customers themselves, which are then produced precisely according to their individual specifications.

NEW MERCEDES G-CLASS The new Mercedes-Benz G-Class will be available this summer though no UK prices or specification details have yet been announced. In Germany, it will cost 107,040 euros - £94,430. Features include LED headlamps, driving assistance systems, leather seats, and new suspension. Says Mercedes: “The G-Class has long been considered a design icon. Its external appearance has not changed significantly since 1979. Iconic elements continue to serve very specific purposes and give the G-Class its unique appearance. Extraordinary features combine with the off-roader’s angular lines define its special look. “While the exterior maintains the classic look, the interior of the has undergone a fundamental modern redesign which reinterprets the genes of the classic vehicle to reflect the exterior. “With its off-road character and luxury appointments, the G-Class has always combined two extremes. Unmistakable at first glance and from the first touch, only high-quality materials are used. Every detail is finished by hand with the utmost care.”

HEALTH & BEAUTY

TRIED & TESTED Diode Laser Hair Removal Here’s a sickening fact: The average woman shaves 7,718 times in her lifetime. As if that wasn’t scary enough, a recent Reader’s Digest survey revealed that men spend 3,000 hours (around four months) on trimming their unwanted hair too. Yikes! The point of telling you all this is not to rub your nose in time lost, but to rather bring to light some alternative, timesaving options. You’ve probably already gone through the tried and tested methods of plucking, waxing or threading. You might have even faced the ghastly fumigation otherwise known as Nair; but no matter how hard you try, that hair just seems to grow back and with a vengeance! You’ve probably also heard of (or even tried) the miracle hair removal known as ‘IPL’ or ‘Laser Hair Removal’, and depending on when you had that done, that experience could either be great, or little short of a horror story. Laser Hair Removal crept onto the scene in the late 90s, but back then it was reserved for those who could afford it. The initial wave of treatments got a bit of a reputation for being painful or very uncomfortable, but a lot has changed since then. In fact, the technology is so advanced that many people feel little to no pain at all, to which many are surprised after years of trying the previously mentioned old school techniques. In an effort to provide a real first-hand account, we visited the team over at

Clinic Visjuene to try the incredible ‘Diode Laser’ hair removal. And here’s how it went…

STEP 1: THE PATCH TEST Upon the advise of Lisa (Owner, and Licensed Aesthetician) we popped by a few days before our treatment to get patch tested—a rigorous protocol by Clinic Visjeune’s standards. Vicky and I had each elected a different area to be treated, I my pins, and Vicky her underarms. Having filled in our forms, we each took turns testing our chosen areas. I am pleased to confirm that we genuinely didn’t feel any pain. The only thing we really felt was a little cold— kind of like the residual feeling of someone pressing an ice-cube against your skin and taking it off. After Lisa was confident we’d each been properly tested, she sent us on our merry way and we waited for the days to pass until it was time for the full treatment.

THE SCIENCE: DIODE LASER Lisa thoroughly explained the process, most of which I understood, and will try to relay as best as I possibly can in layman’s terms…the hairs in our skin have their own unique lifecycles; growing and dying as we go about our daily lives. In order to reduce the likelihood of the hair growing back you must kill the root—kind of like a weed. Past methods such as IPL would actually use light beams, not laser, to penetrate the hair follicle, which is why it was found painful as it also affected the surrounding tissue. The

new and improved Diode treatment actually uses a precise laser, the likes of which can penetrate the hair deeper and more accurately, without trauma to the surrounding tissue. Depending on various factors (skin pigment, type etc.) will effect how many treatments you’ll need, but on average they say between 6-8 sessions for lasting results. Essentially, each time you are treating the hair with the Diode laser, you are shortening and shortening the internal hair root, until there’s nothing left to grow. One thing that really stood out when chatting away with Lisa is her honest and dedicated approach to the beauty industry, which was particularly evident when she was explaining that not everyone is actually eligible for the treatment; “…naturally light, red or grey hair will hardly benefit from this treatment as the laser doesn’t work well with light hair pigments. Sadly some practices say it will, which is really unfair to the client”. This isn’t the first time I’ve met Lisa and every time I do I have to really commend

Special Offer 50% OFF* Diode Laser Hair Removal, that’s the same price as waxing!

her for her honesty. I’ve seen clients walk into the clinic before, seeking treatments that won’t really benefit them, and Lisa is the first person to say, or recommend something more appropriate—a rare quality in an aesthetician—and I expect this is spurred on by her extensive training as a lead board advisory member of the British Association of Cosmetic Nurses.

We had the most fantastic time at Clinic Visjuene and we can’t wait for our first full Diode Laser Treatment. Tune in next issue to read about our first treatment!

STAYCATION

THE PERFECT STAYCATION...

ABBOTS COURT “Was that a pig?” asked Vicky, as our car full of self-confessed urbanites played lookout for a renovated stately home-cum-hotel. She was right of course; it was indeed a pig. One of many in fact, which was hardly surprising seeing as we were speeding through archetypally rural Dorset countryside, in Ross’ swanky motor. Our ever-enthusiastic team had been sent to Abbots Court; a new countrychic Bed and Breakfast that is quickly making a name for itself a the place to go for an idyllic short break. As we passed the neighbouring farmstead, we were lured to our final destination via a narrow, tree-lined path, where a glimpse of stonewashed redbrick lay just beyond. Nestled in five acres of verdant land, stood the Abbots Court country home: threefloors, seven guestrooms and a series of lavish relaxation zones. Whilst looking for the entrance we spotted

a friendly face from the kitchen window, “they’re here!” we lip-read as she presented us an enthusiastic wave—the kind you get from family you haven’t seen in ages. It was right then that we knew we were in for a very special trip. The door opened and there was that same friendly face, otherwise known as Niki Barfoot—who we later found out to be the co-founder and operator of the establishment. Her partner (in work and life) Jez shortly joined in warmly welcoming us in. You might already recognise those names from their Wimborne restaurant The Tickled Pig, where in 2012 the couple’s signature flair for hospitality and wow-factor food all began. Fast-forward six years, tons of research, and one incredible home renovation, and Abbots Court was born. Bringing unwavering foodie ethics and country-chic living together in this one rural retreat.

The couple ushered us in and showed us to the lounge area for a pre-tour perch in front of the roaring fire. The space was stunning. We sat on a tan leather chesterfield that took pride and place in the middle of the room, looking out the sash windows that each boasted their own breathtaking view of the pastoral woodland. Before we could get too settled (or likely nodded off in the relaxing ambiance) it was time for the tour. Working from the bottom to the top the grandeur of the rooms grew and grew, each in their own unique way. The pièce de résistance however, was the Saddleback room; a spacious master suite with luxurious trappings, period features and an enormous roll top bath that you can sink into whilst taking in the exquisite views just outside your window. Upon questioning, Jez explained that this wasn’t your average country B&B— that was quickly becoming evident— but rather “a relaxing home away from home”, to quote him. We were blown away by the majesty of the décor, but this was just the tip of the iceberg. Jez kindly led us back to the ground floor and we were seated in the dining room, where we were about to experience true food enlightenment.

Our five-course—yes, five—affair began with an incredible array of homemade nibbles. Handmade puffed rice crackers (a title which by common association doesn’t do it justice) dusted with an explosively flavourful seasoning; crispy pork crackling that crunched on the tooth and evaporated

on the tongue, and finally, a copper cup-full of artisan vegetable crisps, the likes of which could turn even the biggest lachanophobe into a born again lover. What a way to start. The next course I might just have to compose myself for. For it was, without a shadow of a doubt, one of the most delicious dishes I have ever tasted. Exceptional food can leave a lasting impression, not in the way that a decent meal can, which can be equally satisfying on a different level, but in a way that challenges everything you knew about food up until now. And that is what this was for me—a memorable taste experience. Delicate slivers of New Forest venison carpaccio were skillfully plated like fallen rose petals, sprinkled with earthy micro herbs, jewel-like capers, a whisper of truffle, a shaving of local cheese and dots of potent aioli. Every element was influential in its own right and made for an incredibly exciting dish, worthy of a standing ovation.

menu as “Chocolate pear, walnut”. We were presently with a sinfully rich trapezium of chocolate ganache, topped with a refreshing mascarpone cream, toasted walnut shavings and pumpkin seeds, and tactfully placed pieces of poached pear. Even as full as we were from the four prior courses, our will would not waver and there were empty plates all around. A word to the wise; this might be death by chocolate, but if it is, sign me up.

Our third course was a contemporary take on a fish curry. It was bursting with vivacious eastern spices that clung to each mussel, packing flavour with every bite. The enlivened Puy lentils (cooked al dente) brought that little bit of bite to the dish, and equally took on the aromatic savours of the sauce. Atop the heap was a homemade onion bhaji, still warm from only just being cooked. I should add that alongside our meaty mains our token vegetarian Vicky was sampling some delights of her own. At this point, she had already enjoyed a delectable beetroot soup—which even as a self-confessed beetroot hater, she loved—and a beautifully ingenuous

deep fried shallot, but her third course was something (quote), “out of this world”. Don’t be put off by its simple title, “carrot three ways” was a beautiful appreciation of local produce and really summed up the level of respect that the chef has for quality ingredients; a common theme throughout. Our fourth and final savoury course was the Smoked Duck. The first thing that struck us was the vivid plating; ruby red cherries sat in a pool of bright green puree, with the duck on top of it all. The meat was served to us in two ways: one confit and the other a succulent breast fillet. Both had taken on that undeniable aroma from the smoking, but they were both so different. The fillet was idyllically cooked, just pink in the middle with perfectly sealed fat and skin, whilst the confit piece was slow-cooked and gently fell apart in the mouth, making it utterly moreish and decadent. For our final course, we tucked into something ominously written on the

Niki and Jez returned only to find us in a food related semi-comatic state, but being the phenomenal hosts that they are, they rolled us back into the lounge to unwind once more. Coffees were served whilst the couple took a little time to share some of their stories with us. Listening to the two of them talk so passionately about their new venture filled us with fire and instilled a sense of confidence in the future of this incredible establishment. These two are proud to run a family business, so much so that they too live within the B&B with their wonderful family—whom can regularly be found greeting and helping guests. We also found out that Jez and Niki are hoping to host a series of incredible foodie events so be sure to keep your eyes peeled in our events section. If you’re looking for the perfect country retreat, with some of the finest food around, then we can’t recommend Abbots Court highly enough. Please note: due to licensing the team are not currently taking sole dining bookings, but we think the price of stay is well worth it to experience their amazing culinary delights!

HEATHER BROWN TALKS PANCAKES Heather Brown has 20 years of baking experience and currently loves running her own business delivering high quality, bespoke bakes for any occasion or event. Heather is always tinkering in the kitchen to rustle up something new and she started her business in the belief that bespoke baking and catering can be so much more exciting that the often bland beige buffets presented at events. In that vain, every order that Heather takes is specifically tailored to her client’s needs and every menu is designed to make sure that the food is delicious and the perfect compliment to any event.

“Pancake Day is the perfect opportunity to gather some friends together, whizz up some pancakes and have all sorts of fun experimenting with a whole host of delicious ingredients to adorn each one. Anything from the traditional lemon and sugar, to healthy fresh fruit and natural yoghurt and even the more elaborate S’mores style pancakes topped with melted chocolate, peanut putter and mini marshmallows. Yum.

Heather also has experience with and is available to work collaboratively with brands to help with blog or advertising content and can come up with bespoke recipes to fit with brand imaging and lifestyle shoots.

“Pancakes can also be easily tailored to suit all kinds of dietary intolerances and choices as they are really just a combination of flour, milk and a raising agent. Most standard crepe recipes, like the one below, take the form of plain flour, cow’s milk and eggs, but all sorts of tweaks still produce tasty pancakes, as long as the ratios of flour, milk and raising agent stay the same. I personally prefer to use ’00’ grade plain flour, semi-skimmed milk and medium eggs, as I find that combination makes a lovely, smooth pancake batter.

With Pancake Day approaching House asked Heather to give us some advice on whipping up some delicious pancakes.

“For gluten free pancakes, the plain flour can easily just be switched to gluten free plain flour with little difference to the resulting pancake.

“For vegan pancakes, the eggs can simply be replaced at a ratio of one flax egg (1 tbsp of milled flaxseed mixed with 3 tbsp of hot water) to one chicken egg. Milled flaxseed is now widely available from most large supermarkets or health food shops and is an easy substitute for eggs in a lot of vegan baking. The milk can also be replaced with your preferred milk (almond, soy, oat etc). “This recipe (opposite) makes 4 large pancakes (which is plenty for one person). If you are feeding the masses, then simply multiply the recipe, the method is the same.” For more information about Heather Brown visit: www.heather-brown.com Follow Heather on Instagram, Facebook: @heatherbrownuk

Pancakes (4 large pancakes)

Ingredients

Method

4oz plain flour 1 egg 50-100ml milk

Place into a bowl the flour and add the egg and some of the milk. Begin to mix with a whisk (you can use a mixer if you have one but start slowly so as not to decorate your kitchen in flour!) and continue until all the lumps are whisked out.This should result in a thick, smooth paste. Gradually add in more milk, mixing between each addition, until you have a batter the consistency of a good smoothie.

House’s favourite filling suggestions: Lemon and sugar Maple syrup Jam Banana and Nutella Chocolate, peanut butter & banana Raspberry and dark chocolate sauce Toffee Sauce Honey & Banana Chocolate sauce and ice-cream Lemon curd & blueberries Honey, yogurt and blueberries Bacon and brie Cheese and ham

Place your frying pan onto a high heat. The hardest bit is now to wait until the frying pan so that it is nice and hot, but it is worth the wait as if you don’t, your first pancake will be limp and clammy. Once your pan is hot, drizzle in some oil, swill it around the pan and then pour off any excess into a bowl. The oil is there to make sure the pancake doesn’t stick, but it needs to be the barest coating.

I find a ladle the best at spooning the mixture into the pan but if you have a jug then that works just as well. Ladle or pour the mixture into the pan and swill it around until you have a thin coating over the entire base of the frying pan. As it cooks, you should see the colour of the pancake changing. When the whole pancake has changed colour, ease a spatula underneath to loosen and either flip over with the spatula or obviously you can ‘flip’ the pancake into the air. Cook the other side of the pancake just enough to brown and tip out onto a plate. Pancakes are best eaten hot from the pan but if that isn’t possible, then stack the pancakes on top of each other and they will collectively stay warm until you have finished cooking the last one. 133

HOW TO BE YOGA BODY CONFIDENT ACCORDING TO JESSAMYN STANLEY Breathing, stretching and selfawareness are the basics of yoga, and yet somewhere along the line we’ve lost sight of them, Jessamyn Stanley tells Keeley Bolger

she spend her teens vaulting in the gym. She’s honest and, if you want an answer to whether or not you’ll pass wind during yoga (you will), she’s your go-to woman.

Yoga body. Innocuous-sounding, but peel it back and the preconceptions are there.

So when she says ‘every body yoga’ she means it. Like many of us, she has felt the laser-like gaze on her in the studio, but hopes in writing the book, more people will feel encouraged to practice.

“Until the turn of the 21st century, the yoga community in the West has been characterised by people who have the money and the time to devote themselves to it, and that has tended to fall into the category of wealthy, predominantly white, slender people, and even more specifically, women,” explains Jessamyn Stanley, yoga teacher and author of new book Every Body Yoga. “The reality is that, that has nothing to do with yoga. The truth of yoga has absolutely nothing to do with body size or skin colour or physical ability [or] gender expression. It’s literally about connecting to your breath and looking within yourself.” Stanley, from North Carolina, describes herself as ‘fat’. She’s not from a moneyed background, nor did

Here, she lays out her advice on three common concerns...

PROBLEM ONE: WHAT IF EVERYBODY LOOKS AT ME IN MY YOGA CLASS? “One of the most common questions I get is, ‘I’m worried that everyone’s going to stare at me.’ And I’m like, ‘They are going to stare at you. That’s the first thing you need to get over before you even go to the class because you can’t spend the whole time thinking, ‘Everybody’s looking at me.’ Everybody is looking at you.”

SO WHAT CAN I DO? “If you’re that concerned about it, don’t go to a live class. Take an online class. Sometimes it really is that

intimidating to be in a space with other people. If you take an online class, you don’t need to have a teacher in the room with you, staring and telling you what to do. If you have a space that feels good for you, that’s really all you need.”

PROBLEM TWO: I CAN’T STOP THINKING ABOUT HOW I LOOK DURING YOGA PRACTICE. “We spend so much of our lives asking each other, ‘How do I look? Does this look OK?’ It’s, ‘How do I appear to others, not how do I feel?’ If every time you put on clothes you said, ‘How do I feel?’ you’d walk out of the house wearing wild things. “But the point is that no one is having the experience you’re having, so if it feels good to you, that’s all that matters. And nowhere is that more true than on a yoga mat.”

WHAT SHOULD I DO?

PA Photo/Workman/Christine Hewitt/Jessamyn Stanley

134

“It’s so different to say, ‘How do I feel?’ Because ‘how do I feel’ might mean I need to pay more attention to this area, or I need to internalise this. That experience is so much more worthwhile and so much more telling. You can mine that experience for truth way more than you can the question of how you look.”

PROBLEM THREE: WHAT IF I CAN’T DO ANY OF THE YOGA POSES? “I used to feel self-conscious that people were looking at me because I’m larger-bodied and the teacher would always be like, ‘Have you done yoga before?’ and give me a lot of attention I didn’t want. “[Even now] I still have to talk myself down. I will be in a class and think ‘Man, I feel very self-conscious here.’”

WHAT CAN I DO? “Don’t look at other people; close your eyes. Find ways to slowly tune into yourself because no matter who else is in the room, it’s your practice. Even if you don’t get out of shavasana [relaxation pose]. Even if you don’t move. Even if you stay in table top position and you come out of downward facing dog after a breath every single time, it’s fine, because that’s your practice. “You don’t have to give an explanation to anybody else. You don’t have to feel guilty about it. That’s something I wish I had understood in the beginning.” Every Body Yoga by Jessamyn Stanley is published in paperback by Workman, priced £12.99.

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

MY CAFFEINE FREE JOURNEY... In October 2017 it dawned upon me that I was consuming too much coffee. In fact, I was highly addicted to the stuff, often drinking 10 cups a day believing it was getting me through the day. I was living for the next caffeine high. When I then thought about the amount of dairy I was consuming plus the aspartame filled sweeteners I was popping into every cup I realised it was time for change so I decided to go caffeine free for 3 weeks. It’s now been 3 months since I had my last coffee and there’s no going back for me. I’ve lived to tell the tale with some surprising results. Don’t get me wrong – the first 4 days were hideous, I felt like the back of my head was literally going crack open and found myself pacing the kitchen thinking about boiling the kettle. Serious caffeine withdrawal had set in. But I made it through the other side. By day 6 the benefits started to show one by one… If you’ve ever seen a Skincare Therapist for acne, rosacea, or any kind of inflammation related skin issue, I bet you’ve heard this advice before: Stop drinking coffee. As a Beauty Therapist I’ve given this advice countless times, but never acted upon it myself. I have a passion for a healthy lifestyle and a constant quest for better skin but never pin pointed coffee as being as damaging as it was. You always hear people swear that giving up [insert vice here] changed everything for their skin. Most often, it’s dairy, sugar, wheat, or coffee. Why is coffee the culprit? Long, scientific story short: It’s because

longer stare at the ceiling for hours after getting into bed and toss and turn all night. I can get 7 hours straight through which would have been unheard of for me. Needless to say this has had a huge benefit on my state of well-being. Sleep is ultimately super important to us humans and its now clear my caffeine addiction was having a huge impact on my sleep pattern. We all know that feeling of waking up tired, laying there wondering how you are going to manage the day ahead, thinking up excuses as to why you can call in sick and hold an unofficial Duvet day… I now feel the benefits of a much calmer more consistent sleep pattern. I no longer trade my sleep for an Espresso.

I don’t mind admitting I suffer from Anxiety. It often comes from nowhere but can lead to scary anxiety attacks and a constant feeling of doom. We have just completed one of our busiest periods at work, one of the most hectic terms on the school calendar but I can honestly say I have taken it all in my stride over the last couple of months. I feel calmer and more in control than I have done in years, I’m much more patient with my 2 young children and feel like I can handle pretty much anything thrown at me.

OTHER BENEFITS OF GOING COFFEE FREE CAN BE:

I normally loathe the Winter months due to being a Raynaud’s Syndrome sufferer. This medical condition causes arteries to spasm resulting in decreased blood flow mainly affecting your hands and feet causing them to turn white and feel completely numb. The sensation of the blood flow returning can often be very painful. The winter months consisted of daily attacks for me, even a trip to the supermarket chilled isle would send my extremities into a state of frozen panic. My last Raynaud’s attack was September 2017. It’s by no means proven that the vessel constricting result of caffeine affects Raynaud’s but there is a clear link. My results speak for themselves.

I now feel like I am providing my body with what it really needs, fresh, whole, real unprocessed foods, more water, sleep and relaxation. I was able to break up with coffee and make up with my overall health.

Now the big one which has had the most impact and in fact will improve all areas of my life – Sleep! I no

coffee is highly acidic. High doses of acidic caffeine mess with your hormones, namely your stress hormones, which control your skin’s oil production. On top of that, it can act as a diuretic, dehydrating your skin if you drink too much. I fall into the tencups-a-day group, so on the dehydration front I was becoming a shrivelled prune. Stopping my coffee intake has also increased my Water intake. Double bonus. My Skin feels plumper and healthier and (fingers crossed) has been blemish free.

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.

21ST FEBRUARY BARE SKIN ON BRINY WATERS, AT POOLE LIGHTHOUSE

THROUGHOUT MARCH 2018 SING YOUR HEART OUT FOR CHARITY WITH DIVERSE ABILITIES

Bellow Theatre head to Lighthouse, Poole’s Centre for The Arts on 21 February with their award-winning show Bare Skin On Briny Waters. Originally developed for Hull’s Heads Up Festival, the play explores survival and escape in forgotten seaside towns, with a pair of young women struggling to keep their heads above water. Led by Maureen Lennon and Tabitha Mortiboy, Bellow are Supported Artists of Hull Truck Theatre, and a New Diorama Theatre Emerging Company 2017/18. They are renowned for intimate, moving and DIY aesthetics and for telling brave and stirring female-centric stories. Bellow were part of the Hull City of Culture 2017 Take Over at Edinburgh, and found success for the piece amongst audiences and critics. It received two award commendations from NSDF for Writing and Acting, and comes to Poole as part of a wider tour. The piece questions young women’s place in the world. It’s about female anger, love, and the struggle for independence, and investigates how a generation promised everything can forge its own path. It features live original folk music and is designed by Naomi Kuyck-Cohen with lighting design from Will Monks.

Diverse Abilities has an exciting opportunity for individuals and groups to exercise their vocal cords in a bid to raise money for the Dorset disability charity. Throughout March 2018 Diverse Abilities is asking the local community to take part in the charity’s singing month. Anyone from established choir groups, to schools and individuals can take part in this fun and engaging project. Whether it’s busking in the street, organising a ticketed performance for friends and family or hosting a sing-off in school, there are plenty of opportunities for everyone to make a difference and raise vital funds to support the charity’s services that support over 700 people across Dorset. Diverse Abilities frequently use singing in its services, especially at its specialist school, Langside. Using song as part of a routine helps the children supported recognise actions, days, and repetitive tasks. Local pubs have already registered their interest in taking part in the Sing to Raise fundraising initiative. The Boot Inn in Weymouth will be hosting their ‘Cheese, Wine & JAM!’ Open Mic Night on Monday 5 March and a live music event with Andy Grant on Tuesday 6 March 2018. The Famous Old Spa pub and restaurant in Weymouth are also getting involved and will be hosting a band night on 29 March 2018, alongside a bucket collection to support Diverse Abilities. If you’d like to know more about Sing to Raise and have an idea of how you could get involved, visit www.diverseabilities. org.uk/sing or call Nicole directly on 01202 718266 to discuss your ideas.

SELL

All the services of a high street Estate Agent for a fraction of the cost

Why pay more?

your property for just...

£543

Don’t take our word for it !!! Take it from some of the clients who have sold through us in the last 12 months... ‘People often say selling/buying property is one of the most stressful situations we face but this could not be further from the truth in this case. From being marketed to completion took around 6 weeks and for only £543. Nothing was too much hassle for the team at MPG.co.uk and I would whole heartedly recommend them to anyone looking to sell their home’. Mr R. ‘Thank you MPG.co.uk for making it easy for me. I would definitely use you again’. Miss R. ‘We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend MPG.co.uk. Far better to use a knowledgeable local company than the national online estate agents. Very attentive and well informed service throughout. Thank you!” Mr F. ‘All in all I feel the sale was well handled and I would recommend MPG.co.uk to friends and colleagues’. Mr D. ‘Thank you so much for all your help, patience and assistance with the sale of our property. We are very grateful for all your support’. Mr & Mr G. ‘Extremely happy with the service I received from MPG and all ran very smoothly. We were kept updated as and when we needed it and we are very happy with the fixed fee. Many thanks for all your help and we will be sure to recommend your services to others’. Mr & Mrs K. ‘Just want to thank your Team for all their hard work in connection with the sale of the above property to us. We would not hesitate to recommend your firm to friends and family’. Mr & Mrs A.
