BOURNEMOUTH’S LARGEST INDEPENDENT ARTS FESTIVAL SET TO TRANSFORM THE STREETS 28 APRIL – 7 MAY Bournemouth’s largest independent arts festival, Bournemouth Emerging Arts Fringe (BEAF), is set to fill the streets with creativity from 28th April – 7th May 2018, immersing visitors and residents in Bournemouth’s emerging arts scene. From exhibitions, theatre productions, concerts, comedy, cabaret and film screenings, a vibrant and colourful street festival, plus the launch of the first ever art gallery in police box, this will be one of the liveliest and most imaginative festivals to hit town! Spread over 10 days, it will see unique and inspiring events transform venues across the town, from our regular cafes and bars, galleries and theatres, to the more original spaces, the cliff lifts, a series of transformed shipping containers, and of course the famous police box in Boscombe!

With an ambition to ‘challenge your views of creativity and culture,’ the festival features the best of Bournemouth’s homegrown artistic talent. Showcasing the work of our artists, musicians, poets, street performers, comedians, sculptors, the festival will bring something different to the town and highlight the amazing work being produced by our creative community. With a wide selection of events, highlights include a new theatre production ‘The Vodka Hunters’ by the award winning author and director Nell Leyshon; the sublime and ridiculous comedy/chaos/cabaret act, Slightly Fat Features; a beautiful sensory installation of plants and spices within two shipping containers on Boscombe beach from artists Garbacheva/Bonomo; magic and performance from the grand-daughter

Dorset Business Angels (DBA) directors Peter Eales and Max Wright, met up with Ian Girling, CEO of Dorset Chamber of Commerce (DCCI). The purpose was to talk about the journey of an Angel investor, investor opportunities and how they could work more effectively and engage with the DCCI community.

to encourage more female investors in the UK Business Angels network.

DBA was formed in 2013 with the aim to bring investors and entrepreneurs together to accelerate the growth of early stage businesses. DBA provides quality, private equity investment opportunities to local high net worth (HNW) and sophisticated investors (SI). Several times a year DBA investors invite businesses to pitch for investment in a Dragon’s Den style scenario.

Seasoned Angel Investor Max Wright commented, “The average term of an investment is anywhere between 3- 5 years, with a potential investment return being achieved of between 30 – 50%. I only invest in sectors that I know and understand and would always state that potential investors should be prepared that their money can be lost too. However, there are generous Government tax schemes, such as SEIS, which mean that even if an investment is not successful that up to 80% of the investment made can be recouped. I would say that 3 or 4 investments out of 10 made are successful.”

Commenting, Ian advised, “I was really surprised, but encouraged to hear that opportunities for investors start as low as £5,000-10,000, when an investor might team up with other investors.”

Ian Girling said, “I think that educating everyone about the excellent and interesting opportunities in the area of Angel Investment is going to be key in order to encourage more individuals to want to become involved. It’s been hugely enlightening today to learn so much about what they do. The Chamber is looking forward to perhaps welcoming one of the Angels as a guest speaker at one of our regular Chamber lunches and I look forward to attending one of the pitch events in the coming months.” The next pitch event is being held on Monday 12th March at the Royal Bath Hotel in Bournemouth.

A trainee solicitor at Dorset and Somerset law firm Humphries Kirk, was one of six ‘dragon’ judges at the Young Enterprise Dragons’ Den event last week in Poole. Roger Cole, trainee solicitor at Humphries Kirk, acted as a Dragon and listened to groups of year-10 students pitching business plans with the hope of winning a 50 investment for their companies. Each group pitched their business plan in under three minutes and then Dragons were given the opportunity to question the groups on their pitches, before deciding which company to invest in.

Roger chose to invest 25 in Epiphany and 25 in Prizm. Epiphany creates collapsible coffee cups, designed in conjunction with Barclays’ Eagle Labs. The cups are lightweight, easy to store and intended to reduce the use of disposable coffee cups. Prizm creates stylish wooden lights which glow in the dark, to be used as a garden ornament on warm summer evenings or as a nightlight for children. The lights are made using surplus wood from the domestic kitchen industry. Roger Cole, trainee solicitor at Humphries Kirk, commented: “It was a privilege to take part as the Humphries Kirk Dragon in this year’s Young Enterprise Dragons’ Den event. I was very impressed by the confidence and ambition demonstrated by all the student participants.

Garden Office - The Shortest Commute You’ll Ever Make! Garden rooms are a great asset to any home, a superb selling point or something to consider adding to your new property when you are looking to move. Modern garden rooms are extremely versatile with many different uses, perhaps the most beneficial for home workers, is creating an office space and therefore freeing up a room in the home.

HOME & WORK LIFE BALANCE Unlike converting part of your property to fit in a desk, let’s say the

hallway, bedroom or utility room where you can be easily distracted, installing a garden room to serve as an office gives you that disconnect from regular home life, so you can really focus on work. That short commute also works the other way, leaving your work life behind at the end of the day allows you to switch off and wind down, avoiding that permanent state of flux that you might endure from an office inside the home.

GARDEN ROOM OFFICE DESIGN Having a good design is important, whether you will be spending a lot of time working from home or just the odd day or evening. Your garden room office should be a space that you look forward to spending time in, enough room for a desk, sure, but a breakout or planning area integral to the design could make all the difference. With good design, you also get the essentials - electricity supply. The best garden rooms will have this designed in, with some flexibility as to where sockets can be located around the office plan and fixed lighting in just the right areas.

12

If you work all year round your home office will need to be warm enough in the winter so you will need good insulation, especially in the roof, double glazed windows and doors are essential. If you have ever worked in a porter-cabin in the winter, then you will appreciate why insulation all round is a must.

HOLIDAY HOME OWNERSHIP

BREXIT UPDATE - GOOD OR BAD FOR THE INDUSTRY? So here we are 20 months on from the vote and in 14 months we won’t be part of the EU. I’m no expert in politics or negotiation but it does seem to me that we ought to be a little further on with the process by now. Feels rather like we are moving house tomorrow and haven’t done any packing! In economic terms we’ve bumped along at a similar level with mixed signals so it’s hard to say what the effect has been. Currency One thing that is incontrovertible whatever your opinions is that the pound has fallen substantially against other currencies. As it happens I’ve just returned from Spain and whatever rates are quoted on the news, I’ve just looked and credit card transactions and cashpoint withdrawals were at something like 1.09 euros/pound. In my mind and I suspect it’s the same for most people this means that I am treating prices in euros as pounds as the difference is too small to bother working out and it’s a painful experience I can tell you. So the Europeans are coming? It’s tempting to jump to the obvious conclusion here that we are about to see a rush of business from Europeans whose money will go a lot further in

England. If I were a tabloid journalist I might choose to quote some statistics at this point- looking at the period since 1st September visits to our main website from Germany are up 12%, from Spain up 121% and from France up a massive 160%. Perhaps I’d write a headline along the lines of ‘Dorset bracing itself for Euro tourist invasion’ however just to put these numbers into perspective the number of German visitors has soared to 276 and we had 28,000 visits from the UK in the same period. For our business foreign tourism is a red herring, the opportunity is definitely with the ‘staycation’ visitors.

weeks so it’s Spring and Autumn that really count and these are the pre and post children customers. They may or may not be affluent but my feeling is that they are definitely price sensitive. We’ve all been there- you pay £150 for a hotel room then won’t drink a beer from the minibar because it’s £5 for a small bottle. It’s not that you can’t afford the fiver and it’s not that you don’t want the beer but once you get it into your mind that something is unreasonably priced you start to believe everything is and that’s what is happening to thousands of people like me in Europe at the moment.

Sentiment and the shoulder months are key Tourism is very very sensitive to people’s state of mind. I’ve written before about people effectively looking for a reason not to rent your holiday property- they have found 50 to choose from and they need to whittle that down to a sensible shortlist. The same process is currently going on at an earlier stage in households across Britain- shall we go abroad or stay in next year? It’s easy to think about the family spending a lot of money on 2 weeks in the summer holidays but this is not where good years are made or lost. We always sell all the peak

Are we seeing an effect? As I’ve written many times I always look at the data which often shows a different picture to what I think is happening. This time my feeling that we were having a very good autumn has proved to be borne out by the figures- September was up on last year which was up on the previous year following the vote, October too showed an increase and most promising of all advance bookings for 2018 are up on this time last year. Everything is pointing in the right direction so despite my severe misgivings about the result it would seem that at the moment we are reaping the benefits of the country’s choice.

Bumper Brexit years to come or will the economy go into reverse and bookings decline in the long term. The jury is out and we will be revisiting the subject regularly.

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

38

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.

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.

…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.

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/

ASK THE EXPERT ABOUT...

GETTING A QUOTE OR ESTIMATE Steve Webber, Director of Maidmans Moving & Storage Steve has many years experience in the moving and storage industry. Miss S of Poole asked, “What is the difference between a removals quote or an estimate?” Steve says: “Maidmans always sends a trained professional to provide an in home consultation in order to assess as accurately as possible what is required”. Steve advises the following should be considered when a quote is given: • The volume of goods to be moved. • The access to the property and to ascertain things like how many flights of stairs there are inside the home etc. • Are there any particularly difficult items such as ultra wide screen TV’s, large mirrors, pianos etc. needing special care. • Which items you want to be professionally packed and whether packing materials are required.

WHY HIRE AN INTERIOR DESIGNER? Katie Thomas, Design Director, KTM Design

At KTM Design we do the Interior Design, space planning and refurbishment of offices, restaurants, nightclubs, bars, shops and homes. We help people to plan their spaces in the most effective and intelligent way, enabling them to get the most value out of their space. We offer a complete Interior Design and Spatial Design service from start to finish, but why do people hire us? • Hiring an Interior Designer can actually save you money. Using a designer helps you to avoid costly mistakes that will not only help you save money but can also increase the value of your home or business. • If selling your home, Interior Design is essential when listing your property as it can set your home above the competition and boost buyer appeal. This can exponentially speed up the amount of time your property is sat on the market for before it is sold – giving you a faster turnaround and more money in your pocket. Plus, it is likely to sell for more money. • Using an industry expert to professionally plan the layout of your restaurant, office or bar will achieve a better finished product that will increase the success of your business. Often people forget about the technical aspects of Spatial Design – you want your

Following the consultation, we supply a detailed written quotation, showing what is included or excluded in the move. This is a fixed price that can’t be changed once accepted by the customer. A quotation should always outline exactly what is covered and anything subject to additional charges, so you will know exactly what the final bill will be. An estimate is only an educated guess at what a removal cost is likely to be – but it is not binding and will not cover any unforeseen developments. You could find the removal invoice is far more than you had expected.” Steve said: “It is always best to use a reputable and experienced BAR member removal company, to provide a written quotation outlining everything which will be provided for your home move. This is much safer than getting an estimate, which may cost more than budgeted”.

space to look good but above all it needs to function well. • Interior Architects and Designers are trained to think differently, spatially and to see the overall picture that clients often cannot. Thinking ‘outside the box’ is what we do all day long. This is where we can give our clients the ‘wow’ factor they are all looking for. Very often homeowners try to do it all themselves and get frustrated, so having that immediate consult is a big advantage when making aesthetic decisions. • The aim of the designer is to take the stress away, keeping you on budget and saving you time and effort. At the start of a project, a professional assessment of your situation leads to a solid plan of action. Using a designer to source furniture, fabrics and all products for your home will save you endless amounts of time researching.

BROADVIEW SHADING SOLUTIONS Broadview Design & Install New Outdoor Structure at the

Sandbanks Hotel Poole-based Broadview Shading Solutions is celebrating their two hundredth outdoor shading installation with the fitting of a bespoke outdoor shading structure on the terrace at the Sandbanks Hotel. The third generation business, established in 1969, specialises in interior and outdoor shading solutions for the residential and commercial market and has been a long-standing supplier to the Sandbanks Hotel, part of the prestigious FJB Hotels group. The new 12 metre by 5 metre covered outdoor structure adjoins their Ocean Palace restaurant and includes an electrically operated louvred roof and sliding glass panels. The addition of the structure will offer the hotel far more useable space all year round, as well as a secluded area for private hire and VIP events. Broadview Director Mark Pratt is delighted with the installation, “We have worked on a number of

projects with the FJB group before and when we were approached to design a new outdoor shading system for their beach terrace, we knew it would be a special project. The finished structure looks stunning and will offer the hotel much more flexibility for events all year round, day and night.” Prior to the shading structure, Broadview had installed a set of ten awnings on the hotel’s beachfront terrace to shield patrons from the elements when dining outside at their Seaview Restaurant. “Here at FJB Hotels, we have always put a lot of effort into improving our hotel’s offerings in terms of structural additions and continuous refurbishments in all areas to improve the customer experience. In the last couple of years, we have made great new additions to the popular Sandbanks terrace by adding a fully equipped bar as well as kitchen unit” remarked John Butterworth, owner of the FJB Hotels.

“In order make our terrace less susceptible to the unpredictable British weather, we wanted to have a covered outdoor space, which would suit our complex needs and be flexible enough to accommodate everything from wedding functions to restaurant and bar service. Broadview Shading Solutions was able to construct a large space, which we can open up entirely for the summer months and close during the winter, enabling us to attract customers all year round.” “The planning and construction phase of the project went smoothly and resulted in a structure which matches the other high-quality additions to the terrace and will boost our offerings to customers.” For nearly fifty years, Broadview has been synonymous locally for indoor shading solutions and awnings but over the past few years, they’ve witnessed a number of changes to their business including diversifying into outdoor shading structures for commercial businesses in the hospitality, retail and education sectors, as well as vehicle awnings for tradesmen and automotive technicians throughout the UK and in Europe, which allow them to remain operational during inclement weather. Broadview offer a complete consultation, supply and installation service for homeowners and business owners. Their showroom, on Hatchpond Road in Poole, is open to the public to view the wide range of indoor and outdoor shading solutions on offer.

NUVUW

Take the stress out of property development So, you have reached the point in your property development project where the design plans are drawn up and signed off. It’s time to move onto project planning and delivery. But, where do you start? How do you scope what you need? How do you manage everything, and everyone? How do you stay on budget? These are just some of the questions software and property developer Lawrence Rankin regularly gets asked, so we spoke with him to find out how his creation ‘NuVuw’ (the latest in home improvement software) can make a huge difference to endto-end management of property development and renovation projects.

FOCUS ON PLANNING Using the Interactive Gantt Chart, users can schedule activities/tasks into the calendar and to do list features, and invite co-workers, subcontractors, and other team players to easily communicate through skype, email and in our online portal—an ideal solution for quick decision making and keeping all involved in the loop. The Document Portal is, as it would suggest, built in to allow storage of all documentation relating to the project. Offering all involved in the project the most up-to-date point of reference, at a central cyber location, with all the latest specifications and plans. With

full version control, you can keep abreast of the changes that are being made as the project progresses. Next, collaborate with NuVuw’s community of trade professionals to source partners and their quotations. If you are a trade professional, you can benefit from receiving requests for new quotes through the platform with your own user profile, allowing you to showcase your work, which is then visible to potential clients looking for trade services in the local area.

360 DEGREE VIEW OF ALL PROJECTS As the project continues and time becomes of the essence, it can be a minefield to keep track of what is going on and when. This is where the Dashboard feature will help seriously reduce your stress levels; by providing an overview of single, or multiple

projects in progress. You can track key milestones and click onto each project to drill down to the finer detail, or look at your growing portfolio as a whole. Built into the dashboard is an alert and notification system, telling you when a job is nearing completion, becoming overdue, or creating red flags in other areas. You have the ability to fully manage all of your team, as well as track progress, budget and spend. This unique functionality brings all of the elements of property development design and project management together.

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.”

BUILDINGS & CONTENTS COVER Richard Pettifer is the Manager of our Westbourne Personal Lines Team who specialise in Home, Motor and Travel insurance. A-One Insurance is a professional and highly visible broker based in and around the South of the UK. Our clients renew with us year on year and refer their friends to us as they know we keep our promises, trust our philosophy and deliver a high level of service and reassurance. Whatever you need from home insurance to complex commercial risk advice we can provide a solution designed to meet your individual requirements. We’re proud of our in house claims team providing you with advice and support when you need it most. For that extra personal touch why not visit us locally in branch at Westbourne or Ringwood, we recognise the value that having a dedicated person brings to your peace of mind. WHAT IS INCLUDED IN BUILDINGS INSURANCE? If you can imagine turning your house upside down, anything that doesn’t fall out is generally covered on your buildings insurance, so if you damage the walls, roof, ceiling, fitted kitchen and any other structural items, you would claim on this policy. Fire, water and malicious damage are also covered. REBUILD OR RESALE VALUE? A common discussion is ‘what should I insure my buildings for?’ Your resale value is the amount your house would sell for. Your rebuild is the cost of physically having to rebuild your home and should not include the value of the land in which is sits on, it is this value to which you should insure for. It is important to give an accurate rebuild cost of your home as if you over-estimate or insure your resale value you could end up paying higher premiums. However if you under estimate could leave you with a lower pay out if you were to claim. WHAT IS COVERED UNDER CONTENTS INSURANCE? If you imagine again turning your home upside down anything that falls out would generally be items covered by your contents insurance; the sort of things you’d take with you if you move. If your possessions such as your furniture, clothes and electrical items are stolen or damaged contents insurance could replace it. Just like with a buildings policy, you’ll need to estimate the value of the items you want covered in your home. High risk items such as computers, laptops, audio visual equipment and jewellery that exceed a certain value will often need additional cover. Policies where contents cover is up to a set value as an example £50,000, £75,000 or £100,000 does not mean you will necessary be covered for the full amount, if your contents is above the average for the number of bedrooms of your home you may be subject to an average contents amount for the size of your house. Feel free to discuss whether your buildings and contents policy covers you sufficiently with us, call Richard and his team today on 01202 769899 or email westbourne@aoig.co.uk

ASK THE EXPERT

POWERS OF ATTORNEY – ARE THEY REALLY NECESSARY? Since October 2007 you have been able to create two types of Lasting Power of Attorney – one that covers your property and financial affairs and another that covers your health and welfare. If you created an Enduring Power of Attorney prior to October 2007, it will still be valid, but if you don’t have anything in place you should consider creating Lasting Powers of Attorney. Unfortunately none of us know what the future holds therefore it is best to ensure that your wishes are fully understood and carried out by people you trust. The people entrusted to carry out your wishes (your ‘Attorneys’) can be your spouse or your children or anyone close to you that knows you well. Even if you are fit and healthy now, it is best to have something in place and registered with the Office of Public Guardian as soon as possible. You can revoke your Powers of Attorney if you wish to at a later date, so long as you have the mental capacity to make the decision to do so. Whilst you still have mental capacity, you retain complete control over your finances and life, in the same way as if you had not signed a Lasting Power of Attorney. However, if you have an accident or require some assistance whilst you are in hospital, for example, your attorneys can assist you and carry out any instructions you give them. You can then take over full control when you are fit and healthy again. With a Lasting Power of Attorney in place your chosen attorneys will be able to manage your bank accounts and investments, resolve any banking problems, carry on your business, issues cheques and pay your bills all the time you are unable to. They have to act in your best interests at all times and assist you in making your own decisions as far as possible. What happens if you don’t have an Enduring Power of Attorney or Lasting Powers of Attorney? If you lose mental capacity (through an accident or illness for example) and are no longer capable of making your own decisions, then someone can apply to the Court of Protection to be appointed as your Deputy. If the court is happy with the chosen Deputy, they will grant the authority for that person to access your affairs in a similar way to an attorney. However going through this process tends to be more lengthy and costly and there is no guarantee that the person who applies to assist you is the person you would have chosen for yourself. Why not call Jeremy Tucker or Kathryn Loveland at Dutton Gregory for some initial advice on the role that Lasting Powers of Attorney play in our future life planning?

LOOK AFTER THE BIRDS IN YOUR GARDEN In a regular series, Alasdair Urquhart, from Haskins Garden Centre in Ferndown, will provide expert gardening advice and simple steps to gardening success. Alasdair is Haskins’ in-house plant expert. It’s important to look after our feathered friends, particularly during these colder winter months. Birds forage for food in the winter as they need high fat foods to provide energy and survive the colder nights. With this in mind, I want to show you all there is a fun and rewarding activity which all the family can join in with – creating homemade bird cakes to help attract birds to your garden. This simple recipe takes just 20 minutes to complete. WHAT YOU’LL NEED • Bowl • Spoon • Grease-proof paper

TRANSFORM A PLAIN CEILING Back in the eighties many people moved away from plain and papered ceilings in their homes to textured coatings commonly called Artex. Since then the trend has reverted back to plain finishes but I would like to show you what can be done to break these large blank canvasses up a little. Here at Led-Zip we often find ourselves working with creative ceiling features using LED strip products. These products are a continuous flexible strip containing an evenly spaced row of LEDs and have an adhesive backing so you simply peel the backing strip off and stick them down. They are low voltage, typically 12Vdc, and produce a very even light source. Being just around 10mm wide and flexible they lend

• Saucepan • String or twine • Cake shapes or cookie cutters

INGREDIENTS REQUIRED • Lard or suet • Wild bird seed, peanuts, bread and cake crumbs, oats, currants, sultanas or grated cheese METHOD • Mix the dry ingredients together in a bowl, using a ratio of one part fat to two parts dry mixture. • Melt some lard or suet in a saucepan and add to the dry mix. Stir to ensure all the fat is absorbed and the mixture sticks. • Place a sheet of grease-proof paper onto a tray and spoon a half layer of the warm fat mixture into the moulds and place a long loop of string on top. • Fill the remaining mould to sandwich the string. • Leave to set in the fridge overnight. • Push the shapes from the moulds. • Hang the cakes in a tree or shrub and wait for the birds to arrive. Just a little food and shelter can turn your garden into a vital sanctuary for birds. Garden birds are prone to infection during the winter, so keeping their energy levels topped up is important. We also have a range of bird houses, tables, feeders and wild bird food available to purchase now.

themselves to being easily concealed in to furniture or ceiling features. These features are usually in the form of dropped or raised areas and can contain other lighting as well as the strip product, the strip is normally used to define the edges of the feature. We stock the strip in many colours and in two levels of brightness, the higher 10W/m strip has a light output great enough to light most rooms without any additional lighting as it contains 120 LEDs per metre. Colour changing strip can be great fun to change the atmosphere of the room to suit the occasion and we have even done one in a crematorium! The features can be constructed easily in plasterboard or MDF and complex shapes can be achieved if required or simple rectangles. Here are a few pictures of ceilings that we have recently worked on. The strip products are very economically priced at just a few pounds per metre and as you can see from the above can completely transform a room. Please feel free to call in and discuss your project or to see two rooms here where we have dropped either the middle or the outside of the ceiling and then lit with the Led strip.

We’re currently in the middle of National Nest Box Week, a campaign which runs annually from 14th-21st February and aims to encourage people to put up nest boxes to help breeding birds.

TALKING BUSINESS

HOW YOUR HOME CAN GIVE YOU TAX FREE CASH TO ENJOY YOUR RETIREMENT For many homeowners over the age of 55, their mortgage is either fully paid up or only has a small outstanding sum. With the rising cost of living, many householders are opting to utilise the equity from their property to help fund their retirement. This method of releasing tax free cash from your home is called a lifetime mortgage (or equity release). In previous years equity release received a bad name; but on the back of strict legislation and governance by the Financial Conduct Authority this has now been quashed. The modern lifetime mortgage is only available through bona fide mortgage brokers and lenders, and there are strict guidelines as to how you can be advised on this option should you be considering it. Local mortgage specialists Homeline Mortgages are experts in this field and within their team have specialist advisers with extensive knowledge of

the current mortgage market and are therefore well equipped to provide you with accurate and up to date advice. Oliver Bishton and Kosta Shabrov are two lead members of the Homeline Mortgages team who regularly advise clients on lifetime mortgages, and believe it is a great option to access cash to fund the things you may not otherwise be able to afford. Oliver commented, “A lifetime mortgage is a loan secured against your home, and you can use any cash released to spend as you wish. This might be to help your children or grandchildren get on the property ladder; to fund home improvements, or simply to give you nice holidays or a new car and live your retirement without having to worry about money.” To apply for a lifetime mortgage, you must be over the age of 55 and own a property in the UK. Lifetime mortgages are based on your individual circumstances, such as

joint ownership of the property, and whether you wish to leave an inheritance in the future. Kosta added, “A lifetime mortgage is not for everyone, but it may be right for you. Our role is to talk you through all the options and to ensure that you feel fully informed. Some lenders offer an inheritance protection guarantee which allows you to preserve a portion of your home’s value to leave to your family in the future; plus, most carry a ‘no negative equity guarantee’ which means you will never owe more than your property is worth. It really is down to personal preference, such as whether

you wish to give your family a financial helping hand now, not later; or if you would significantly benefit from using cash tied up in property to help you fund and improve your retirement lifestyle.” If you are interested in finding out more about a lifetime mortgage, Oliver and Kosta offer a free initial consultation, with any fees only payable once a mortgage arrangement is put in place, and then at an agreed standard rate.

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.

HARBOURWOOD HOMES

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.

Q: Was it your previous experience in your own trade businesses that made the build that much quicker? DEAN: “Having a pre-existing team of incredibly skilled builders and craftsmen definitely sped things along, but I think what we realised along the way was just how hungry we are for this industry. We never let problems (big or small) slow down the process, which is where some projects can fall down.” LIND

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”.

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

IS YOUR PROPERTY STILL ON THE MARKET? Whether you are looking to rent or sell your property, you hope the agent you decide to go with has given you a realistic valuation. Based on their ‘expert’ advice you expect your property to be let or sold within a certain time period. It could be the agent has expressed a lower figure than you wanted, however, they have opted to go with your valuation, with hopefully the expectation that you may need to lower the price if the market does not produce any or very few viewings. Why am I saying this? I received a call this week by a vendor moaning his agent was very quiet, they started marketing the property in January and to date there has only been one viewing and he wanted my advice. After visiting the property, I telephoned the vendor and said if I had the money I would not buy his property and listed the many reasons why as well as all the much nicer properties I could buy within a quarter mile radius of his property for far less, in fact in my opinion the price was £50,000 too much! Now, it could be the agent had expressed this at the outset, and it could be the vendor felt he was more experienced in valuating the property than the agent – not completely unheard of as many vendors or landlords do believe their property is worth more. As an agent, is it is incredibly difficult sometimes to find the balance. At Move On we strive to be as honest as possible, and that can lead us to sometimes to not winning a valuation because another agent has been more brazen in saying they can achieve the higher figure, when in fact all they want is to list the property. Once the property is on and you are tied into an agreement, they can come back to you in a few weeks and ask you to lower the price. Nothing wrong with this, if the honest conversation was told at the beginning. But when it isn’t, the vendor or landlord is felt cheated, lied to and thus gives agents the bad name. Move On has a strong, healthy working relationship with all our landlords and vendors, we believe open communication is vital, to continue with a great relationship. If you would like an informal chat, pick up the phone, we are always here to help.

EMMA JANE INTERIORS Home is where the art is

When Dorset couple, Christopher and Anne decided that living in their contemporary, Sandbanks beachside apartment was not their cup of tea, they decided to make their dream home a reality. The hunt began for a house where they felt they could impose their own personality upon. They soon fell in love with a classic, 1930’s five-bedroom property with a luscious English garden, away from the crashing waves. The couples’ yearning for a home with a traditional English interior left them with two major problems: One, whilst being structurally ideal and in the perfect location, it was decorated to the previous owners taste some years ago, the 1930s Arts and Crafts era which was now in need of a new lease of life. Next was finding an interior designer with a genuine grasp on Colonial styling, and an equally advanced understanding on the soft, New England colours that the couple so loved. Another, albeit uncontrollable, factor was the weather in this part of the world, as it doesn’t always lend itself to living in such an idyllic seaside position. The winters are very long here, and most days the sea and sky are dull grey. Whilst the location is highly sought after, the couple soon found it was depressing looking out at a vista of merged grey water and sky.

So they knew that the interiors would really make or break their enjoyment of this home. After searching through magazines, online and everywhere they could think of, they almost lost hope finding the right person to help them, but find someone they did; in the form of Interior Designer, Emma Jane.

“From our first meeting, Emma understood my thinking and embraced the project with such passion. It was almost as if Emma could read my mind. She was a genius at anticipating the type of look we wished for and has proceeded over the past 18 months to deliver it with such enthusiasm and efficiency”. —ANNE, OWNER

With a tasteful choice of fabrics and gentle colours the weary house has been lifted, whilst the individual accessories and quality furniture has given it its own unique identity. The theme is very much Colonial, with a New England premise that radiates a feeling of calm and relaxation. The lounge area has been tastefully encrusted in rich browns, greys and soft pastels, with a few antiquated accents to make the space more welcoming. A private study was also created for the master of the house, with his own private hideaway, in a style that

radiates a professional mood when hard at work there. The master bedroom is to die for, with chandeliers, bespoke furniture and sumptuous textiles such as velvets and silks to submerge into after a long day. The other bedrooms continue with a luxurious theme, lavish and inviting to the couples, family and friends that come and visit, making each and every one of them feel welcome in an extravagant hotel-like setting. Anne is particularly fond of the small bedroom set aside for overnight visits by her granddaughter. Designed as a perfect haven for the little lady, the room is adorned with butterflies and birds, with its very own dressing room and en-suite. “What I love about this particular project was having a blank canvas to work with. Anne was able to describe the look she wanted to achieve, and I understood the brief immediately. That connection is so important for me with my clients and it’s something I aim to achieve with all them.” says Emma.

special, became overwhelming. She invested in a course at on the country’s best-known design college, The KLC School of Design, Chelsea. That experience gave her the push to cut loose and set up her own company, Emma Jane Interiors Hampshire. Emma’s reputation for originality has grown as one of the best young designers in the South, earning herself a range of commissions in the area. Emma says she is inspired by the works of Peter Phan and Alla Shumeyko, but she has her own particular views on what it takes to make a room special in design terms. “I’m convinced my true vocation in life is to create warm, inviting and luxurious spaces and rooms that would make anyone feel relaxed and welcome.” says Emma.

MEET EMMA JANE Emma discovered her talent for interior design while in the USA. She took courses in photography and interior design and fell in love with the idea of producing beautiful rooms in other people’s homes. Eventually that need to express her creativity by making rooms look

FOR THE BOLD Interior trend S/S 2018

2017 was the year of grey—in more ways than one. As a nation we couldn’t get enough; we were painting in grey, accessorising in grey…you name it, it was grey. Evidently, 2018 is to be the polar opposite; with bright, loud and colourful schemes creeping onto the radar. With that, we did our own little investigation and have put together a few key hints and tips, as well as some of our must-haves. Certainly not for the fainthearted, this trend embraces brash and loud symbols of popular culture. Sex, drugs, rock and roll—not that we necessarily condone that in reality—are definitely an underlying theme, particularly when it comes to accessorising, but the beauty of this scheme is that you can cherry as much or as little of the style as you want.

COLOUR SCHEME As stated this scheme is about being bold, so when it comes to colours, go for exactly that. Bright pinks (i.e. fuchsia magenta, and hot pink), vibrant blues (teal, cobalt and artic), orange and red are amongst the most popularly used, whilst gold and brass are also pleasant additions, usually in the form of metallic lighting and or accessories. Whilst that might all seem like a colourful eyesore, the trick is all about balance, and the best way to achieve that balance, is to abide by the age-old rules of colour theory. Red and blue (or indeed orange and teal in the form of their secondary hues) are complimentary, as are violet and yellow and so on and so forth. In following the rules, even the boldest shades can be used in the same room, without aesthetically offending other inhabitants and visiting guests. DESIGNER’S TIP: “Be tactful with your accessory placement; just because it’s bold, doesn’t mean it has to be cluttered. A few characterful ornaments, tastefully arranged artwork, or even some crazy cushions can be just enough detail to make a really interesting space” ABOVE: French Connection Zinc Cuddler Sofa in luxe velvet forest green, £849.

LIGHT IT UP When bringing your interior components together, it is all about lighting. Plenty of bright, but adjustable, light will transform any room into an inviting and inspiring place to be. Be courageous with your choices; think chandeliers, low-hanging pendants and quirky fixtures. You want your light to be just as stirring as any other accessory. If you’re not feeling so confident, try this theme in a room with lots of natural light, this will make it less drastic and a little easier to handle. DESIGNER’S TIP: “Don’t be afraid of bold colours; bright pinks (i.e. fuchsia magenta, and hot pink), vibrant blues (teal, cobalt and artic), orange and red are all fantastic, whilst gold and brass are also great additions—particularly in the form of metallic lighting and or accessories.” BELOW: Cleo Pendant Lamp, £54. Available from Furniture Village (furniturevillage.co.uk)

INTERIORS

FINISHING TOUCHES Complete the look with plenty of soft furnishings. Mix up your textiles and patterns. The best looks are when all of the elements compliment each other, when fabric, wood and metal work harmoniously together. Don’t be afraid to mix and match, the rules are out when it comes to coordination, so ditch the handbook and get creative. By Charlotte Williams LEFT: Monde Mosaic The Dark Knight Framed Print, 16x20, £79. Available from Amara (amara.com).

ACCESSORIES We love Amara’s range of pop-art style accessories, particularly these amazing cushions. These needlepoint woven wool cushions are oozing with sass; designed with a pair of bold red lips pursed around taboo substances, they certainly make a statement. Very much in the vein of the punk rock era, and the general attitude of not giving a monkey’s, they scream cool and deliver on the bold theme. Don’t get us wrong, at £145 they are not cheap, but they are truly one of a kind and crafted with exceptional attention to detail. Other fantastic additions include pop-culture artwork—such as famous movie posters and comics— and brash ornaments, such as these incredible gilded, faux-animal skulls.

TALKING BUSINESS

TALKING BUSINESS WITH...

TP SHERWOOD Paving the way since 1988 A driveway is to a house, what an invitation is to an event; an introduction is to a song, or an appetizer to a main course. A driveway, like all of these things, sets the tone for a property and therefore should not be neglected. There is a common disconnection between one’s home and one’s driveway, but there shouldn’t be. After all, what’s the point in having a show home if the path to it is unsightly? Enter: TP Sherwood!

career change would stick. A mere few months into his new job and he was getting offers left, right and center. His projects included the well-known ‘Tower Park’ in Poole, not to mention several renowned supermarkets up and down the country, but despite the grandeur of these projects he longed to plant his feet firmly and solely in the local community. So, in 1996 he decided to set-up his own company.

We met with ‘Trevor’, owner of family-run business TP Sherwood to find out more about them and their work.

A Family-Run Business

Meet; Trevor Sherwood Trevor began his paving career in 1987. Having come from a civil engineering background he was no stranger to masonry, but even Trevor couldn’t fathom how much this

Wanting to be a part of the local community Trevor set-up shop in Poole. Filled with new ideas and skills gained from previous work, Trevor took to the task with ease. TP Sherwood is and remains, a family business and its heritage continues with the employment of Trevor’s son, to work with him and carry on the company’s lineage.

We always advise clients to go and see our projects that are two to three years old and see just how well they’ve lasted. Most jobs look pretty when they’re done, but it’s about the longevity of the work that people forget to consider.

It’s not the first time that they have been the recipients of endorsement; a few years ago they were dubbed as an official approved installer of ‘Brett Paving’, which they continue to vet and check to this day. As gratifying as their prestigious approval is, TP Sherwood still consider their customers to be the deciders of their craftsmanship, which is why they rarely take a deposit. Payment for their projects are usually settled 7 days after the work is complete and not until both parties have agreed that the job is of a satisfactory quality.

“From the moment I spoke to him I felt he knew what he was talking about. The team duly arrived and within 4 days I had a new drive, the men worked so hard and so professionally and the end product is fantastic! I cannot praise him or his team enough and highly recommend them!” (Testimonial; Mr. L) We really could go on about this wonderful independent business, but the results speak for themselves. Take a look at their website or get in touch for more information.

Longevity Is Our Aim In terms of what’s “trending”, driveways have been through a lot. Cast your mind back to the millennium and it was all about an organic scattered pebble look, then there was the great ‘Crazy Paving’ era and then the more recent ‘Resin’ reign. But among the fads the slabs and traditional brickwork that were laid all of those years ago, remain standing (in a matter of words). TP Sherwood take pride in their work, after all it’s the most physical version of a CV you could ever have. Every project is a shining example of their work and a testament of their skill. During our interview Trevor explained that the team would only ever undergo one project at a time; he explained, “We don’t like to spread ourselves thin. We want to ensure that every job is completed to a high standard and given our full-undivided attention. Sure, it might be old fashioned, but that’s how we like to work”. TP Sherwood craft driveways that last the test of time.

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

C3 AIRCROSS FLAIR UPGRADE Citroën has announced that Active Safety Brake has been added to the standard specification on its new C3 Aircross Flair models. Active Safety Brake reduces the risk of collision by braking in place of the driver. The multi-purpose camera at the top of the windscreen detects obstacles, such as a stationary vehicle or a car moving in the same direction at a slower speed. The system brakes automatically when a risk of collision is detected, from 3mph to 52mph. New Citroën C3 Aircross Compact SUV features 12 driver assistance and safety systems, plus four connectivity technologies. Prices start from £13,995, and £16,990 for the top level Flair trim.

ROAD TEST: VAUXHALL INSIGNIA SPORTS TOURER In recent years the traditional estate car has been overshadowed by the rising popularity of SUV and MPV models, but Vauxhall’s latest Insignia Sports Tourer is good enough to win back plenty of ‘lost’ customers, writes NICK FLETCHER. Sports Tourer prices start from £19,135, and the model appeals to both business and private buyers. Standard equipment is generous and even entry versions come with a smartphonecompatible touchscreen infotainment system, DAB radio, keyless entry, cruise control and autonomous emergency braking. The Sports tourer is large and practical but also offers refined driving dynamics with surprisingly nimble handling and with its sleek sporty styling is a genuine head-turner. The revised exterior styling features a wider front grille grille and swooping headlights which help give some distinctive visual cachet. The cabin looks good, with a more upmarket appearance thanks to improved trim materials. Front and rear occupants gets plenty of head and leg room despite the sloping roof line and the loadspace space is

enormous, with a massive 560 litres boot expandable to 1,605 litres with rear seats folded. On the road, the car immediately impresses with its smooth composed driving feel and crisp handling. It is a quiet refined cruiser yet docile in city traffic and has a real sporty character when you want more power. The 0-60 mph time is quick at 8.6 seconds, top speed is 137 mph. Fuel economy is 49.6 mpg combined and emissions 150 g/km. My test model was an upper range SRi VX Line Nav, with 2.0 litre 168 hp diesel engine and 6- speed auto gearbox. Priced at £27,350, it is laden with extra kit including sat-nav, Apple Carplay and Android Auto, front sports seats, climate and cruise controls, heated steering wheel and sporty VXR styling pack including side sills, roof rails and visual rear exhaust outlets. Rivals in the sector include estate versions of the Ford Mondeo and VW Passat, but this latest Insignia Sport Tourer has taken a significant leap forward and can justifiably run with the pack leaders.

KIA RIO GT-LINE

128

On sale across Europe this Spring, the new Kia Rio GT-Line model, powered by 118 hp turbo-charged 1.0-litre petrol engine which offers 60.1 mpg combined, with CO2 emissions of 107 g/km. It is paired with a six-speed manual transmission. The Rio’s sporty five-door exterior introduces stylish new design features such as a gloss-black and chrome ‘tiger-nose’ grille, unique GT-Line 17-inch alloy wheels, and ‘ice-cube’ LED fog lamps, echoing those of the cee’d GT and pro_cee’d GT. The exterior is finished with twin exhaust tips, LED daytime running lights, chrome window trim, a gloss black roof spoiler and sill highlights. The interior has a series of unique GT-Line features including black synthetic leather and cloth seats, metallic trim surrounds the door switches and gear lever, and the dashboard has a new carbon fibre-effect finish. The optional large 7.0-inch touchscreen includes navigation, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for full smartphone integration. A rear-view parking camera, heated steering wheel, and heated seats are also available. Kia says the new Rio is the safest B-segment car the company has ever made, featuring an Advanced High Strength Steel body construction and six airbags fitted as standard.


MOTORING

NEW MERCEDESBENZ A-CLASS ROAD TEST: SUZUKI VITARA S The latest Suzuki Vitara is a world away from the Jeep-style Vitara off-roader popular in the 1990s, it is now a chic SUV crossover with classy styling and car-like driving dynamics, writes NICK FLETCHER. Well-equipped and with a sporty driving feel, the Vitara competes in a tough sector against the likes of the Vauxhall Mokka, Renault Captur, Peugeot 2008 and others, yet has its own plus-points to take on the best. Priced from £15,999, the Vitara is available with petrol or diesel engines, manual or auto transmission, and with the option of 4WD on the top-spec versions. Entry models get alloy wheels, Bluetooth, air conditioning and cruise control but you need to move to up-range to get touchscreen sat-nav and smartphone connectivity. My test model was a top-spec S version with 4-mode All Grip 4WD and powered by a 138 hp 1.4 litre Boosterjet turbopetrol engine and automatic transmission. Priced at £24,599, this version has a wealth of extra features including rear-view

camera, 17-inch black alloy wheels, roof rails, rear privacy glass, adaptive cruise control and DAB radio. It’s a model that has visual cachet and impresses with its sprightly driving dynamics. It has an agile chassis, precise steering, nimble handling and a firm yet still comfortable ride. The 0-60 mph time is 10.2 seconds, top speed 124 mph, emissions are 127 g/km. Fuel economy is 51.3 mpg combined. Inside, the dashboard is rather dull-looking though logically arranged, and there are some personalisation options than can add some contrasting colour if you wish to brighten it. A tall road stance means Vitara cabin accomodation provides good head and legroom in the rear, and seating is very comfortable. A deep tailgate gives good access to the 375-litre boot, which has a flat floor, and the capacity can be more than doubled by folding the rear seats. Smartly styled, solidly built, car-like to drive and with everyday practicality, the Vitara deserves to be on the shortlist of anyone looking to buy in the crowded SUV sector.

ROAD TEST: LEXUS CT200H F SPORT The luxury hybrid hatchback class is a significant niche market, with models aimed at those seeking premium quality and sporty styling in a compact package, writes NICK FLETCHER. Add eco-credentials to the mix and one contender moves to the head of the list – the Lexus CT200h, just revised and enhanced for 2018. It is a hybrid, mating a 1.8 litre petrol engine with an electric motor and CVT auto transmission, and the result is smooth refined driving from a car with visual charisma and a luxurious interior. Prices start at £23,495 for a well-kitted entry version though the mid-range F Sport I tested features revised body styling for a more muscular image, and extra equipment. For £26,995 you get F Sport front grille, bumpers and rear spoiler, F Sport steering wheel, special 17-inch alloys and sports suspension. You also get leather upholstery, 10.3 inch display screen with sat-nav and dual-zone climate control. The petrol engine and electric motor combine to give 134 hp, with a 0-60 mph time of 10.3 seconds and a top speed of 112 mph. Fuel economy is an impressive 68.9 mpg combined and the emissions figure of just 94 g/km..

The road stance of the Lexus CT200h F Sport is head-turning and it stands out in a sector which includes rivals such as the SEAT Leon, Audi A3 and BMW 1 Series. Underway, the Lexus is smooth and quiet, the gearshifts seamless. The sports suspension is quite firm as you discover on rough surfaces, but is well-set for assured handling and decent ride quality on the tarmac. The cabin has a premium look and while the dashboard is unusually styled and appears complex, it has a logical layout. Seating is comfortable, there is ample room for four occupants and a big boot, 385 litres expandable to 985 litres. This Lexus offers distinctive styling, luxury features, the bonus of hybrid power and the strong residual values which hallmark the brand.

Available to order in March for UK delivery in June, the new Mercedes-Benz A-Class, which offers a range of new features including the ability to drive semi-autonomously. Prices have not yet been announced. “With the fourth generation of the A-Class, we are redefining modern luxury in the compact class,” says Britta Seeger, a member of the Daimler Board of Management. Improved connectivity services are being launched with a new infotainment system. Features include Vehicle Tracker, which makes it easier to find the parked vehicle, as well as outputting a message if the parked vehicle suffers an impact or is towed away. The capacity of the luggage compartment behind the rear seats is 370 litres – 29 litres more than in the preceding model. The loading aperture is 20 cm wider than before, and the luggage compartment floor is 11.5 cm longer. All the new A-Class models are powered by new engines: Two new four-cylinder petrol engines are available at launch, with others to follow. Also new is the fourcylinder 1.5 litre diesel, and a new 7G-DCT dual clutch transmission is also being introduced. On request the new A-Class is available with the permanent all-wheel drive system 4MATIC with fully variable torque distribution.

5 MINUTES WITH...

TOM SIMMONS The Masterchef star talks welsh produce and what’s in his cupboard The Pembrokeshire-born chef has opened his eponymous first restaurant in London. Ella Walker discovers what gets his creative juices flowing. Tom Simmons was the youngest competitor to reach the quarter-finals of MasterChef: The Professionals in 2011. He’s spent the past 20 years cooking in Wales and working alongside the likes of Michelin-starred chefs Tom Aikens and Mark Sargeant. Now he’s set up his eponymous first restaurant, with girlfriend Lois Thomas, at Tower Bridge, London. We caught up with the talented chef to find out more about his style of food, and why you can’t beat Welsh produce...

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR FOOD? “My style of cooking is very simple, but it’s more about letting the ingredients speak for themselves. I’m a strong believer the dish can only be as good as its produce.” HOW DOES YOUR RESTAURANT FIT IN WITH THAT FOCUS ON PRODUCE? “The idea from day one was always to bring some of our Welsh heritage to London - not necessarily being a Welsh restaurant, but to use Welsh suppliers. “All of our lamb is saltmarsh organic Welsh lamb, the beef comes from north Wales and is all organic, and we’re trying to get a fish supplier, but logistically, it’s pretty tough.

YOUR DEEP-FRIED COCKLES FROM PENCLAWDD HAVE BEEN GETTING A LOT OF ATTENTION... “Ha, yes - everyone likes deep-fried salty food. It’s just a take on battered fish really, but it’s a great bar snack and cockles are a fantastic product that should be used more. They come with a laver bread [traditional Welsh seaweed wafers] mayonnaise - that’s a really great flavour for seasoning dishes.” WHAT IMPACT HAS MASTERCHEF HAD ON YOU? “MasterChef probably knocked about 10 years off my life! I was quite a lot younger and a lot less experienced than I am now, but it was great, a real eye opener.”

“Wales has some of the best produce in Britain, if not in the world. Welsh lamb is renowned for being some of the best, and then we’re just throwing subtle hints across the menu; the leek butter, the cockles - we don’t want to alienate ourselves in London and just appeal to Welsh people. It’s about trying to get a balance.”

LEFT: Roast cod, new season garlic, white wine shallots, girolles and dill oil.

“At that time, I was working as a head chef in a golf resort in Pembrokeshire. It’s a very small area, so I was a big fish in a little sea. On MasterChef, I realised just how good food can be and how many great chefs there are, and that if you want to be known in the industry, you’ve really got to put all the hours in and do something slightly different.”

WHAT DID YOU LEARN FROM APPEARING ON THE SHOW? “You have to really work hard and stick with your beliefs. Also, preparation! I was quite naive going into it, really. The dishes I did, I hadn’t put any practice into them, it was all quite off the cuff. I did very well for someone who hadn’t prepared very much, because the other contestants all said how much they’d practised their dishes.

HOUSE REVIEWS...

FIERCE GRACE

Yoga Enthusiasts Assemble! On an average review we are usually sent out to the latest haunts to tackle colossal food challenges, testing the unforgiving limits of our jeans a little more each and every time. On this occasion however, we swapped our usual review setting for the likes of a hot yoga studio—spoiler alert: we survived! We were invited to The Yoga Rooms in Boscombe to try the latest “it yoga” Fierce Grace: 90 minutes, 70 poses, in 40 degree heat. Created by the same woman (Michelle Pernetta) who brought Bikram Yoga to London back in 1994, Fierce Grace is a new system that blends strength and flexibility for both body and mind. In combining the best of Hatha, Bikram and Ashtanga yoga this system is the ultimate amalgamation of core building, balance and flexibility training, as well as the additional benefits of soothing deep breathing and meditation. It also happens to have some seriously wicked ethos behind it too…

Over the years yoga outsiders (myself included) have laboured under the false impression that everyone who practices is of flower-like proportions, and born with the natural elasticity of a bendy ruler. But, the Fierce Grace mantra is that of if you’re even the slightest bit yoga-curious then you should act on it, as all are welcome. So, as a what I’d call “semi-fit” kind of gal, I and my partner in crime Vicky took ourselves off to try the class for ourselves. We arrived at The Yoga Studio one unexpectedly bright February morning (was this a sign? Were the

exercise gods smiling down of our efforts?), the warm beams of sun filling us with uplifting energy ready for the class ahead. Having completed the relevant healthy and safety forms we collected our mats and entered the hot yoga studio. The class began with a gentle standing back bend to awaken our muscles, and a series of deep and soothing breaths. The key to this class—and the most challenging thing to initially get my head around—is taking the time to breathe consciously in and out of your nose (as opposed to nose and mouth), and it really does make all the difference. In fact, the soothing simple breath reminded me just how much we take our amazing bodies for granted—something that kept coming back to me throughout the class. Another point to be made was the unique temperature of the room. Whilst many might be put off at the thought of the heat, it actually made movement that bit easier, allowing the muscles more flexibility—not to mention the additional benefit of serious calorie burning. We transitioned from move to move, sweating pleasantly and profusely along the way, trying new and exciting things in the process. The beauty of Yoga is that you can take on as many or as little of each pose as you like—

there’s no pressure to be the most flexible because this is all about your individual body and you’ll find that your co-yogis embrace your ability with no passing judgment. When you start, your body is probably going to be a little tense, but as you progress you’ll find that each class you go that bit further and find it that bit easier and there’s nothing like that moment of realisation when you see how far you’ve come. The class was wrapped up with some light meditation; a time to reflect. I lay there feeling sore but strong, exhausted but peaceful and overall proud of what my body was able to achieve with the right coaching. Feeling properly worked-out we picked ourselves up, got dressed and headed to the onsite café, Sukha Lounge. To pep ourselves up we decided a smoothie was in order. I opted for the deliciously caffeinated Espresso Smoothie (espresso, banana, coconut milk, dates and cacao), and Vicky the Immune Booster (apple, spinach, pineapple, avocado, celery, cucumber and lime), both of which were appetising and packed full of goodness. To eat, we were offered their signature Bento Box salad: our choice of three unique salads. Considering we were eating possibly the healthiest thing we’ve both ever eaten, this was seriously tasty. All in all we really enjoyed our morning of Fierce Grace yoga and healthy eating and if you’re looking for a way to get in shape in time for summer, whilst also looking after your mind and soul then this is a fantastic option for you!

REVIEWED

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

THE DANCING MOOSE Breakfast of Champions Breakfast is the most important meal of the day for many reasons: health, fitness, and life longevity, to name a few. My personal favourite however, is that it’s literally the first opportunity of the day to sink some delicious food—a duty I take very seriously and with great pleasure. So when our favourite independent eatery ‘The Dancing Moose’ (Ashley Cross) invited us to sample their gourmet breakfast menu you can imagine my excitement. Having previously appraised their implausible evening menu, the team was full of expectation for the food that was to come. The day began like any other—well to us anyway; the review hotline echoed its familiar peal and our team of foodie avengers assembled to the Housemobile, otherwise known as my 1.2L Honda Civic. We sped (at a safe, but exhilarating, 30 MPH) to the location and bowled onto the scene, where a friendly face greeted and seated us. The culinary escapade began as all do, with a round of drinks. Around the table were full-bodied reds, crisp cloudy ciders and cocktails galore. I had opted for their signature take on the classic Mai Tai, or as they put it

‘Our Tai’; a chirpy blend of Appleton SB rum, Patron orange tequila, orgeat and gomme syrups, orange bitters and a healthy squeeze of lime juice—I love elevenses. Our waitress informed us that Head Chef, Charlie Bronson was preparing a range of brunch menu goodies that would be heading to our table shortly, so we took the little waiting time out to take in the atmosphere. It’s hard to deny The Dancing Moose brand’s signature style; a cross between an American diner and a pleasure-seeking, British gastro pub, mixed with plenty of pop-culture memorabilia, neon signage and a cozy atmosphere. Mix that with a vibrant team, delicious comfort food, and a wicked liquor selection and poof you the perfect setting. As we were otherwise distracted taking it all in, our food arrived. First up was the Health Kick Start; an adequately named array of perfectly cooked, health conscious wholefoods including fresh smoked salmon, poached eggs, buttery sautéed spinach, seasoned avocado and grilled tenderstem broccoli. Shortly followed by the Bacon Bruschetta—a seemingly simple dish that packed a lot of flavours. Everything from

the tangy balsamic glaze and sweet basil, to the distinct pungency from garlic and the finely sliced onions came together in this one big hit of delicious piquancy, proving that with the right ingredients humble food can really shine. Next was a cult classic the Big English fry-up, with all the usual suspects, all of which—from the Lincolnshire sausages and streaky bacon, to the crispy black pudding and beans— was delicious. At the same time to my right, Vicky was enjoying the equally plentiful Veggie option; with vegetarian sausages, silky Portobello mushrooms, eggs, and that moreish salty, wilted spinach. Judging by the look on her reaction (a loud and

proud “mmmm”) I’d say she was pretty happy. The penultimate course was the delectable—and my personal favourite—California Eggs: poached eggs, pulled pork, jalapeños, spiced hollandaise, homemade salsa, avocado, served on grilled sourdough bread. This was breakfast amplified—sweet, smoky, spicy goodness in every bite. Each element was perfectly portioned and harmoniously worked with one another to create this incredible explosion of flavours. Seriously, if you try nothing else, make it this! Our final dishes were two sweeter options to round off the meal. The first was the world’s fluffiest stack of 3 American Pancakes, topped with glossy maple syrup, strawberries and bananas—“a perfect sweet treat, and two of my five a day!” I tried to tell myself. And finally, we dug our spoons into the Superfood Yogurt Pot, with thick Greek yoghurt, crunchy sweet granola, blueberries, banana, strawberries and raspberries; the perfect end to the meal. Final verdict? We heart The Dancing Moose brand and if you’re looking for a breakfast with plenty of panache and incredible flavours, then this is your best bet. By Charlotte Williams

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

COPING WITH GRIEF 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. Grief is a natural response to loss. It’s the emotional suffering you feel when something or someone you love is taken away. The more significant the loss, the more intense your grief will be. You may associate grieving with the death of a loved one—which is often the cause of the most intense type of grief—but any loss can cause grief, including divorce, losing a job, retirement, loss of health, the ending of a friendship, or even leaving home. Coping with the loss of someone or something you love is one of life’s biggest challenges. Often, the pain of loss can feel overwhelming. You may experience all kinds of difficult and unexpected emotions, from shock or anger to disbelief, guilt, and profound sadness. The pain of grief can also disrupt your physical health, making it difficult to sleep, eat, or even think straight. These are normal reactions to significant loss. But while there is no right or wrong way to grieve, there are healthy ways to cope with the pain that, in time, can ease your sadness and help you come to terms with your loss, find new meaning, and move on with your life. Reiki energy healing can help you to let go of those difficult feelings, enabling you to gently move forward through your grief, and rebalance your emotions.

WHAT’S ON

WHAT’S ON... A brilliant selection of events happening across Dorset & Hampshire over the coming weeks.

28TH FEBRUARY ROYAL BALLET: THE WINTER’S TALE, THE REGENT CENTRE Christopher Wheeldon, Artistic Associate of The Royal Ballet, created his adaptation of Shakespeare’s late great romance The Winter’s Tale for The Royal Ballet in 2014. The Winter’s Tale received ecstatic praise at its premiere, acclaimed by critics and audiences alike for its intelligent, distinctive and emotionally powerful story, told through exquisite dance. The story follows the destruction of a marriage through consuming jealousy, the abandonment of a child and a seemingly hopeless love. Yet, through remorse and regret – and after a seemingly miraculous return to life – the ending is one of forgiveness and reconciliation.

28TH APRIL – 7TH MAY BOURNEMOUTH EMERGING ARTS FRINGE (BEAF), BOURNEMOUTH TOWN

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

Bournemouth’s largest independent arts festival, Bournemouth Emerging Arts Fringe (BEAF), is set to fill the streets with creativity immersing visitors and residents in Bournemouth’s emerging arts scene. From exhibitions, theatre productions, concerts, comedy, cabaret and film screenings, a vibrant and colourful street festival, plus the launch of the first ever art gallery in police box, this will be one of the liveliest and most imaginative festivals to hit town! Spread over 10 days, it will see unique and inspiring events transform venues across the town, from their regular cafes and bars, galleries and theatres, to the more original spaces, the cliff lifts, a series of transformed shipping containers, and of course the famous police box in Boscombe! With an ambition to ‘challenge your views of creativity and culture,’ the festival features the best of Bournemouth’s homegrown artistic talent. Showcasing the work of their artists, musicians, poets, street performers, comedians, sculptors, the festival will bring something different to the town and highlight the amazing work being produced by their creative community. For a full range of activity go to www.b-e-a-f.co.uk or find on facebook www.facebook.com/bournemouthfringe

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.

HEALTH & BEAUTY

HEALTH & FITNESS Charlie Lowe from the fastest growing bootcamp ‘Wassmuffin Fitter Than fit’ talks Fitness, well being, healthy eating and of course Thai Boxing.

GET FITTER IN 2018 WHILE LEARNING NEW SKILLS

So, happy New Year! I must confess; I’m afraid I don’t believe in New Year, new you. We can make that decision to try something new, or get fitter etc. anytime of the year. So for me, it’s New Year same you, but better! Who wouldn’t want to be a better version of themselves? I mean you’re awesome, we just need to maybe do a little tweak here and there. And as always with Fitter Than Fit, at Wassmuffin Martial Arts Academy, we are here to help. Take a look at our fantastic new deals, which give you up to £20 month off of our memberships. We literally have deals for everyone. Memberships, such as our entry-level admission that solely includes our fitness classes: Bootcamp (morning and evening) and Thai fit. Or, perhaps you’re looking for something extra, then you could take it to the next level and enjoy our stand up classes, as well as our Thai Boxing and boxing. Or take it up a notch further and get our Platinum Membership, which includes the always-popular Ju Jitsu, all our classes, and open gym time. The membership also has the added bonus of private sessions with coaches for a great discounted price and people tend to really cone along way on these sessions.

We’ve always had the reputation of being the friendliest gym in town, so why not pop along and see what we’re all about. So many people already have and have quickly become addicted. In fact, most people are disappointed they didn’t try it sooner! The great thing about martial arts is that sometimes you don’t even realise how fit/strong/much weight you’ve lost and how far you’ve come, as you’re enjoying it so much and concentrating on learning. I have clients say to me time and time again that although they came to lose weight, or gain confidence, or for self defence, that they quickly became the by-product of them actually enjoying themselves and learning something new. Imagine having a work out which you actually love. That you really look forward to. Imagine that! It can happen. Our coaches are refreshed, ready to run, roll, jump, punch, kick and submit their way into the new year with you, with even more knowledge and passion than before (if that’s possible)! As always you’re first session is free so why not come for a taster session before signing up. The deal

is available until March 1st to all new members. We can do so much for you once you’re here but just the getting here and getting through that door is down to you, and yes it can be the hardest part, but once you’re part of our gym family you wont regret it. Trust me. Just go to our website and take a look at all the testimonials—and that’s only the tip if the iceberg. Anyway, come try session, and sign up while the deals are on. It’s never been simpler, and the best part is that you’re not locked in to anything; free to come and go as you please. We understand lifestyles are different and hectic, so remember the ‘pay as you go’ option too.

SPECIAL OFFER UNTIL 1ST MARCH 2018 (FOR NEW MEMBERS ONLY) PLATINUM MEMBERSHIP for £65 (Instead of £80). Full access to the gym

GOLD MEMBERSHIP for £50 (Instead of £65) 22 classes per week

BRONZE MEMBERSHIP for £30 (Instead of £50) 8 classes per week

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’.
