ARCHITECTURE TO PHOTOGRAPHY, MY STORY – BY JACK LODGE Jack Lodge tells House about his journey from Architecture to photography, “Welcome to my story. Growing up in the stunning area of Dorset and the incredible Jurassic Coast, I was always fascinated by what nature had created around us and also intrigued by the role of the architect and how their input impacts our day to day lives. “Fast forward a few years and at the age of 21, I graduated from The Arts University Bournemouth with a first class BA(Hons) Architecture degree and started my first full-time job as an Architectural Assistant with a local firm, BrightSpace Architects. I was loving it! On the weekends, I’d always be out with my family and friends exploring the coast, woodlands and local walks wondering how I could capture those moments to share with others. Then, I purchased my first camera and ever since, I’ve been obsessed with getting out at crazy hours of the day to capture

stunning sunrises and others to enjoy with me.

“I’ve made many friends who share the same passion for photography as me, built a great network of friends at work and also discovered amazing relationships with people on social media who engage with my weekly adventures.

My primary passion is Landscape and Architectural Photography, where I can combine my profession and love of the outdoors into my daily routine.” www.jacklodgephotography.co.uk

LOFT LIVING TO MEET DEMAND AT BREWERY SQUARE

WINKWORTH ANNOUNCE THE WINNERS OF THEIR HOUSE DRAWING COMPETITION

Brewery Square, Dorchester, has just released 10 new loft-style, one bedroomed apartments, which are due for completion in summer 2018.

Congratulations to Amelia & Amelie from The Stourfield Junior School who both won a Gigantic Easter egg for their excellent artwork in the Winkworth ‘Design you dream home competition’.

Features include double height living space, underfloor heating, allocated on street parking, contemporary interiors and all have the bedroom situated on the mezzanine level. Each apartment has floor to ceiling double glazing, along with a small outdoor area. Situated in Eldridge Street and with an asking price of £245,000 the apartments will be ideal for first time buyers (who will not need to pay stamp duty), as well as purchasers looking for an investment. Robert Ackland, director at Brewery Square, commented: “The launch of the loft apartments is exciting for us as demand for one bedroom housing in the area is so high. “Convenient proximity to shops, restaurants and an ODEON cinema, a helpful onsite concierge service, as well as the unusual position of being very close to two railway stations with Dorchester South having a direct line to London Waterloo; these are just some of the factors which are very appealing to potential buyers.” For those interested in finding out more about the forthcoming loft apartments contact 01305 757000 or visit the marketing suite on Weymouth Avenue.

HOME IMPROVEMENTS

APPLE HOME IMPROVEMENTS Bi-Eco Double Glazing So, how are Bi-Eco Windows different to regular double glazing? A double glazed window has several key elements that determines performance; Glass, Frames, Inert Gas and Installation. We have combined the best of these to produce a window solution that has such incredible performance that it gives standard triple glazing a run for its money.

the best triple glazed solution provides just a little more insulation, the difference in cost for minimal gain is just not worth it. Our Bi-Eco Windows are made with toughened glass produced by one of the best, state-of-the-art factories in Europe and with superior frames they are certified ‘Secured by Design’ offering equivalent security all round.

Thick, coated glass reflects the warmth back into the room, superior multichambered frames, 90% Argon filled glass cavity providing superb noise reduction and expert installation for a snug, insulated fit that results in an A+ 12 Rated Double Glazed Window.

We could lament over solar gain, where heat from the sun transfers into your home more efficiently with double glazing and raise concerns over rooms being darker with triple glazing but these are marginal factors, the key advantage double glazing has over triple glazing is cost.

How do they match up to triple glazing? Compared to standard triple glazing they match or can provide better thermal efficiency and noise reduction. Often it makes no sense to install triple glazing when even

Do you still offer bespoke designs for Bi-Eco Windows? Yes, we love a challenge and the opportunity to create something unique but in fact all of our installations are made to measure.

Superb service from start to finish - all aspects of the service were first rate - wonderful surveyor and fabulous team of installers. Couldn’t recommend them highly enough. - MR & MRS HALLIDAY

ASK THE INTERIOR DESIGN EXPERT...

WHERE DO YOU GET YOUR INSPIRATION?

ASK THE EXPERT ABOUT...

THE HOUSE REMOVAL SURVEY Steve Webber, Director of Maidmans Moving & Storage Steve has many years’ experience in the moving and storage industry. Mrs H. of Bournemouth asked “Obviously I will get a quote for my move but what should I expect of a survey of my home?” Steve replied: “All British Association of Removers companies will have specialist surveyors who will be delighted to visit your home and to provide a no obligation, free quotation. As part of this they will assess the quantity of furniture and effects to be moved including both inside and outside items. They will also take note of any items that require any specialist attention such as items that need dismantling and reassembling, items that require specialist packing and protection as well as any that might need particular equipment to assist in their removal. They will also note what protection needs to be provided on the day by way of floor, door and banister covers to protect your residence.” “At the end of your home removal survey, the surveyor may not necessarily give you a quotation straight away, but may need to go back to the office to calculate the quotation correctly. You should expect to receive a written quotation within 24 hours of the survey”. “Remember, removal companies base their price on the volume to be moved, as well as the distance. The more items to be moved, the greater the removal cost. The survey will determine the size of vehicle along with the number of days and staff needed to move everything you plan to take with you. When planning your move you may need to temporarily store items. Maidmans have local storage facilities and access to a network of 17 storage facilities across the UK. The quote can include this storage.”

Katie Thomas, Design Director of KTM Design and Regional Director of the Society of British and International Design (SBID) With every project you look for your inspiration or your starting point. Whether this is meeting a new client, going to a new place, understanding a new brief, understanding the context of where you are working, or the client’s vision or the existing architecture that you are working with. This is where research begins and you start to develop a conceptual programme and develop a visual language that is new and appropriate for the particular project. It is important to me that work doesn’t become stylistic, which is a very easy trap that designs can fall into. In the case of interior architecture and interior design, I always start by looking to the space itself for inspiration. Every existing building has its own inherent quality, which I feel is useful to work with, as a statement of original character and heritage. With new-build projects, the initial inspiration comes from the quality of the environment and the client’s disposition. I believe it is important to refresh your creativity, through art and travel and moments of solitude. Immersing yourself in different cultures and places is a great way to get a fresh perspective and gain deeper insight. I find that being surrounded by other creatives and the visual conversation that takes place is very stimulating for the senses and the mind. I like to dance, something I have done from a very young age, and find endless inspiration from taking ballet and contemporary classes, and also from watching dance and theatre performances. I like to look to the work of architects such as Le Corbusier, Zaha Hadid, Renzo Piano and Santiago Calatrava who have all produced breath-taking structures that include a combination of organic forms and rigidity. I also look to fashion designers like Alexander McQueen and John Galliano and am interested in their use of texture and form. The architect Tadoa Ando particularly inspires me because of his command of the elements and the way he manipulates natural light to create interesting angles. He has an affinity for preserving open spaces and focuses on the use of materials and light and sound to create meaningful spaces. Although Ando’s structures appear simple due to their minimalistic aesthetic, they are actually quite complex because of his careful consideration of all of the elements.

EGO MEDIA

Videos that sell the lifestyle, not just the property We are Ego Media; a cutting-edge production company based in Bournemouth. We’ve worked with both local and international clients, bringing their campaigns, events and marketing to life with stylised, firstclass videography and photography. We pride ourselves on the quality of our work and making our content stand out from the rest and now we are looking to revolutionise how people sell their luxury homes. The concept of using high-quality imagery and luxury brochures to sell your home has been around forever, and can be expensive to produce. More recently, video tours have emerged to show you around the property, but Ego Media go one step further in not only selling the property, but also the lifestyle you can live by owning it.

A GLIMPSE INTO THE LIFESTYLE We don’t just pan a camera around the room to show you inside, we create an exclusive promotional video using our keen eye for detail, and accentuating the very best aspects close up. Using state-of-the-art camera equipment, gliding and sliding through the property, we can deliver a slick, professional look and when combined with our spectacular drone footage we can showcase properties from a whole new perspective. Selling a property relies heavily on visual motivators to encourage potential buyers to arrange a viewing and there’s no better way to show off the virtues of a home than through video. Property video marketing conveys information quickly and effortlessly.

Viewers can see how rooms and spaces connect and get a feel for the flow of the property, as well as gaining a more accurate gage of room size and specific home features. At Ego Media, our videos give the potential buyer the feeling of actually being in the home, making a strong emotional and physical connection to what they are seeing, even before viewing it in the flesh. VIDEO = MORE EXPOSURE What’s more, YouTube is now the second largest search engine, behind Google, so if your website is properly optimised and includes video, you’re 57% more likely to show up on page 1 of Google’s search results. Higher search results rankings mean more potential homebuyers find your listings. More listing views means more offers, and more offers makes for happier clients.

HOME SECURITY Keith Callaway is the Owner of our High Net Worth arm of the group Property Wealth Insurance who specialise in luxury Homes, Motor and personal insurances. We have an in house claims team and you can visit us locally in branch at Westbourne or Ringwood and deal with a person rather than a call centre. The Security Question What happens if I forget to lock my windows? When obtaining quotes for home insurance, we all want to take advantage of all the discounts on offer. You may be familiar with the question - ‘Do you have key operated window locks on all of your accessible windows?’ We are all quick to tick the ‘yes’ button to make sure that we receive the best possible quote. What you may not realise, when this is selected, the majority of household policies sold either online, through your bank or a High Street Insurance Broker, you are then obliged to lock all of your windows and remove the keys whenever your property is unattended and this is where problems can occur. An example being when you decide to take a shower, open the bathroom window to let out steam and then leave your house without closing and locking that window. You may not realise that your insurer may refuse your claim should a burglar gain access through the window. For peace of mind, you may wish to consider opting for a ‘Warranty Free’ home insurance policy instead. As well as offering wider cover than the majority of home insurance policies out there, that wording ‘Warranty Free’ enables more freedom and although insurers would still expect you to lock your windows, they would still look to meet your claim should you accidentally forget to close it, before leaving your home. If you are paying more than £500.00 for your home and contents insurance, contact us to see if you quality for a Warranty Free home Insurance Policy 01425 486565 or email info@pwinsurance.co.uk

HEALING THROUGH ART Paint away the Pain!

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. 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. During an all-time low in my life, following two failed spine operations, I discovered the power of blending my Energy Healing with Art. I now commission beautiful original paintings, personalised to work with the energy of people and their homes - bringing the energy they need into their lives every day. I also run Healing Art Workshops, which are designed to take you inward on your own personal healing journey. This is a wonderful vehicle for transformation and change – making this simple healing process accessible to everyone (no previous art experience is necessary). Although the experience will be different for everyone, the underlying transformation of feeling lighter and brighter is the same for us all. Come and join us to create your very own piece of Healing Art:

HOLIDAY HOME OWNERSHIP

REVIEWS YOUR BEST FRIEND AND YOUR WORST ENEMY Best Practice, Etiquette, Dirty Tricks & The Big Publishing Decision It all started with Web 2.0, gathered pace with Trip Advisor & the app stores then suddenly reviews became absolutely ubiquitous. Whether you are buying a book, gadget or shirt online you’ll probably be presented with a review score and can browse through the opinions of customers ranging from rants to love letters, some eloquent and some less so. Undoubtedly the two categories most affected have been food and travel and there’s been a transforming effect on these industries. A tiny boutique bed & breakfast or out of the way restaurant simply couldn’t compete with the advertising budget of the big boys or those with a prime location but now everything has changed. Deliver an exceptional product and customers will promote you for nothing and if your seafront position used to let you cut corners on quality then you had better think again. As reviews became critical it’s not surprising that lots of people were willing to cross ethical boundaries to improve their ratings with Trip Advisor in particular becoming a free for all. Hotel and restaurant owners wrote glowing tributes to themselves and trashed their competitors and a technological cat & mouse game between publishers and businesses got underway. Software was developed to spot false reviews and shady businesses sprung up managing profiles in a sophisticated way and offering good or bad reviews for money. It’s even rumoured that there were organisations hurting restaurants & hotels with bad reviews then selling a service to improve the ratings in a cyber variation of a New York mafia protection racket. In the UK holiday industry, however things developed in a different way mainly because Trip Advisor bought Holiday Lettings early on in the cycle and so doesn’t allow cottages to be listed on the site by third parties in the same way as hotels and restaurants. The only way to get your cottage listed on Trip Advisor is to pay for a listing on Holiday Lettings and if you think that flies against the principle of being a comprehensive unbiased directory then you are absolutely right. For a long time directory sites didn’t do reviews except those listed by the advertiser (who was paying for the space after all), then AirBnB arrived

and the rush to copy the model of charging a big commission and calling it a booking fee went alongside the introduction of reviews. PUBLISH AND BE DAMNED? So the big decision for all holiday agency sites is whether to publish all reviews, good and bad and score each property. The initial reflex is to say of course you should, the customer is king, quality should rise to the top of the list and bad practise be punished. For a directory site with free or low cost listings you need to provide some value and anyway there are hundreds of directories to choose from and owners can simply not list if they don’t like it. The caveat here is that there is no way to know if the reviewer actually stayed at the property and without sophisticated technology you can be back to the wild west situation with owners and their friends praising their properties and slating their competitors.

different. In my mind this makes us like a Hotel’s own website or a car showroom, I think people understand that we are not providing an unbiased independent opinion. You wouldn’t expect to read in a property description that the view is a bit rubbish or parking really difficult any more than Ford would put a sign on a car in their showroom saying Jeremy Clarkson thinks the Vauxhall is much better. When a guest has a bad experience I can guarantee that the owner is really upset and will work with us to address the problem. Should we publish a rant from a guest who had a dirty shower or no hot water for 3 days? To me that’s like asking if an owner is lying injured on the floor should you run up and kick them in the teeth with a hobnail boot?

The bigger directory sites that take the money have no decision to make as they are built on reviews and can ensure they are only submitted by genuine guests. Agencies like us though have different circumstances and it’s not helped by the fact that the vast majority of happy guests will not send a review so you tend to see either great praise or one or two outlying customers who had a bad experience dominating the page and really hurting bookings on what was probably a one off event or problem with a now departed cleaner. There is one crucial difference though- we demand exclusivity from our owners, they are not free to advertise in 20 other places, some agencies even restrict the number of weeks an owner can have themselves (yes really!) so the relationship is very

TALKING BUSINESS

TOP TIPS FOR FIRST TIME BUYERS It seems we are still keen to own our homes, with figures from UK Finance showing that the number of first-time buyers in Britain hit an eleven-year high last year, more than in any year since the financial crisis a decade ago. This reflects the situation with local mortgage specialists Homeline Mortgages who also helped an increased number of first time buyers get onto the property ladder in 2017 and have seen more first-time buyer mortgage enquiries already this year. Purchasing your first property can be both an exciting and daunting event in equal measure. Whether you are taking the plunge alone or with a partner or spouse, there are steps you can take to help the process run as smoothly as possible. Local mortgage expert Ollie Bishton from Homeline Mortgages told HOUSE that it’s all about planning and preparation.

The first focus should be to get your finances in order, and that includes an honest appraisal of your income and outgoing expenditure and curbing any unnecessary spending. You should also check your credit score, as this is something any lender will assess before considering giving you a loan. “To get the best first-time buyer mortgage you should just save, save and save, and get together as much of a deposit as you can manage. If possible clear off any outstanding debts such as credit cards or loans and focus all your energy into saving money” advised Ollie, “Ideally you need to save around 5% - 20% of the cost of the home you would like; the more you save the wider range of mortgage options will be open to you.” As well as purchasing the actual property, you will need to allocate funds for associated costs, such as legal fees, surveys, insurance and mortgage arrangement fees, plus

potentially decorating and furnishing your new home. Ollie added, “Doing all this legwork is a good idea, as any lender will want to see that you have worked out a realistic budget and that any mortgage repayments are affordable. Part of our service for first time buyers is to help you plan these budgets before we put your details forward to any lender.” Another way of helping you purchase your first home is if a family member is willing to gift you funds to go towards

your deposit. Ollie added, “A lifetime mortgage is a way your parents or grandparents could release equity from their own home to help you get onto the property ladder. Another option is a guarantor mortgage, where a third party agrees to act as guarantor on your behalf.” By working with an independent mortgage broker, you will have access to a wider range of lenders, plus they have a trusted support network in place to help the process run as seamlessly as possible.

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.

There are plenty of plants that grow well in pots, including roses, hydrangeas, nemesias, heucheras and begonias. Choose your pot carefully and consider selecting a contrasting colour to your front door for a bolder statement. For an authentic look, choose a terracotta pot and for a more traditional look, choose a glazed pot. We have a wide selection available at Haskins, including terracotta pots from £5.99, glazed pots from £6.99 and fibreclay pots from £16.99.

Make your property somewhere you’re proud to come home to and give guests a warm welcome with instant and refreshing greenery. Shrubs with interesting foliage such as euonymus and hebe will add immediate decoration to the front of your house. Hebe is one of my personal favourites, available at Haskins from £6.99, as it’s easy to grow and copes well with most soil types. It has decorative leaves and flowers in the summer and autumn in shades of blue, pink, purple of white. Hebes often attract butterflies too. Another garden classic, perfect for decorating doorways and adding structure, are the perfectly shaped box topiary (buxus) pyramids. These are easy to maintain and can withstand shade as well as sun. I also recommend trying jasmine or lavender for the front door as they can provide a great scent as you pass by. You could also add trimming plants, hedges and bedding plants to spruce up your front door and provide seasonal colour. Haskins has a great selection of planted containers, pots, shrubs and bedding plants available to help you create kerb appeal.

TALKING BUSINESS

A BUSINESS THAT HAS HIGH EXPECTATIONS Matthew Howgate, Managing Director & Owner of Bourne Lifts Ltd With a strong commitment to the local clients and ensuring he meets all the demands of the lift industry we asked Matt a few questions that we thought would enable our readers to understand his business. The lift industry has been shrouded in lift terminology for years and Matt wishes to put a stop to this with his unique approach to business. How is it that Bourne Lifts maintains its current status with no external investment? I started the business myself with a strong attitude that I could be open with my clients. I was determined to continue the success I have had for the last 20 years in my approach to sales, which was to be relaxed, open and honest about time and cost of projects. So far this has not let me down and my clients like my approach. I do not wear a suit (unless asked), I think people in the construction and service industry accept that I am an engineer first then a director. What is it about the staff you employ at Bourne Lift which set them apart from other companies? I have and will always employ from inside the industry, mainly people I

know and trust that I have worked with in the past or know from the industry. Even once I have exhausted my little black book I will always look for skills and training that has come from our industry. I saw it in other companies which were happy to employ and invest in sales consultants that had themselves never worked on a lift. I cannot understand how these people can deliver what is expected. It’s the old saying we have in our industry, “Salesmen sell the dream and the project managers deliver it”. We hope to do exactly what we say and deliver an excellent product and service every time. Which word in your strapline, “Honesty, Commitment & Quality”, would you say is the most important to you? Without any hesitation it is “Commitment”. This is the basis for everything I do. I make the same commitment every day to my children and family, that I will do my best, in the most honest manner and to the best of my ability. Period. Otherwise there is no point for me. This is what makes me successful.

ABOUT BOURNE LIFTS Reduce your lift maintenance costs with the Bourne Lift GSM Communicator! Eliminate expensive monthly line rental charges and support costs. At Bourne Lifts they have created a new way to monitor your lift breakdowns and emergency calls while saving you money. The BOURNE LIFTS GSM Communicator has been designed to replace traditional analogue telephone lines for use with any make of lift auto-dialler. This innovation eliminates expensive monthly line rental, support costs, and provides freedom by removing reliance on third-party support. REFURBISHMENT Bourne Lifts provide assistance by offering a far-reaching scope of modernisation and renovation packages for all makes and types of lift. Their engineers perform itemised studies of your lifts, and rather than regularly providing established, older lifts with finish substitution, they offer modernisation packages, where out-ofdate components are supplanted with their cutting-edge components.

SPECIAL OFFER! Take out a maintenance contract for 24 months with a GSM unit and we will pay for the sim card contract for the first 24 months.

NEW LIFT INSTALLATION Bourne Lifts passenger lifts are compliant to standards EN81:1, EN81:2 and 95/16/EC. Should their standard range not quite meet your requirements, they also provide a bespoke range of special lifts. In addition, they offer high-rise or unique finishes to match your specifications, “Please contact us to discuss your requirements – we know we can help.” Honesty • Commitment • Quality For more information on bespoke lift installation, engineering and maintenance contact Bourne Lifts: t. 07808 813804 or 01202 981987 e. matt@bournelifts.co.uk w. www.bournelifts.co.uk

OUTDOOR LIVING

DORSET DESIGN BUILD Visualising Your Garden Dreams With summer (finally) approaching, it’s time we turned our attention to improving our gardens in time for BBQ season. We all have different tastes when it comes to the perfect garden, particularly when it comes to a full remodeling. Seemingly small decisions like; what tiles should the patio be made from? Which plants are low maintenance? And how do I build the perfect outdoor dining space? Eventually add up to a lot of confusion and a pretty big headache. Luckily, there are people, like Dorset Design Build who can answer all of these questions, and use their expertise to take the stress out of re-designing our gardens.

UNDERSTANDING YOUR NEEDS Your perfect garden starts with perfect knowledge. The first step is determining how your garden will be used; who will spend time out

there? Doing what? And when? With this initial information, the Dorset Design Build team will work to create a design that reflects your personal taste and style, and create a practical, affordable, sustainable and beautiful garden that adds value to your home, and enjoyment to your life.

DETERMINE THE LAND Before you can start the garden design process they will also need detailed knowledge about the space that they will be working with including the topography of the area, the local climate, the garden aspect and soil type. With a state-of-the-art Leica Total Station system they can complete a 3D survey of your garden, that is millimeter accurate and even pinpoints any electric and phone cables, gas mains and drains that might need to be avoided.

We make it our business to really grasp what the client’s desires are. We create the most exciting designs, with their needs and ultimately their budget in mind every step of the way. – PETER JENKINS, HEAD DESIGNER, DORSET DESIGN BUILD

All this information is used to create layouts and fully specified and detailed drawings including materials information, levels and cross sections, 3D visuals and even Pinterest mood boards of ideas, so you can fully visualise the finished garden and be sure the design is just right before work starts. Once plans are agreed we use our Leica system to accurately mark out your garden landscape using laser technology for complete precision. This is where it gets magical, being able to see your dream garden emerging from the mud.

MEET THE TEAM Dorset Design Build are the designers and makers of truly inspiring landscaping, the likes of which give homeowners a completely new found love for their gardens. With over 20 years experience, and an exacting eye for detail their team of talented builders bring their matchless designs (or indeed the designs of others) to life, using the finest quality materials and constructionminded technique. So, whether you’re looking for a re-modeled hedgerow or a full renovation, get in-touch and find out what they could do for you.

TALKING BUSINESS

NUVUW

Visually agree your home improvement before it begins How many times have you had an idea for a home improvement and been unable to agree with your partner or family because they just can’t see what you can visualise? How many frustrating conversations have been had wandering through the house, pointing at this, referencing that, and trying to get someone else to really see what’s in your mind’s eye? Now imagine being able to simply put into a 3D plan your vision of the finished project—that’s where NuVuw’s easy 3D modelling tools can help. “What is in your head, and what your partner, architect, interior designer or builder translates can be very different”, says NuVuw’s Founder Lawrence Rankin. In fact, having the ability to easily model your ideas in 2D, and then flipping into 3D is a huge advantage for anyone planning a renovation or home improvement project. FROM THIS...

Lawrence continues, “It also makes it easier to get meaningful input when finalising ideas and the time and money this saves is incalculable - the feedback from our customers and professionals is that it really helps to get everyone singing from the same hymn sheet.”

BRING YOUR PROPERTY DEVELOPMENT AND HOME IMPROVEMENT IDEAS TO LIFE The Design Tool Kit allows you to first model your ideas in 2D. Starting with a blank canvas, you can build your house or chosen rooms with simple drag and drop functionality. You can include the exact measurements, or just play around with various room shapes to give you an idea of the end result. With a simple click, you can add in staircases, windows and doors, furniture and white goods, and what’s more, you can personalise your designs by changing the colour of your wallpaper and floors, selecting wall art and accessorising, all to help really bring your vision to life.

TAKE A 3D TOUR

TO THIS...

TO THIS...

Once you have included all the elements you want into your 2D plan, it’s time to take a tour through your design. Simply select the 3D view and you will be in a position to literally wander through the rooms. It’s so realistic and gives you a real sense of what everything will actually feel like once completed. This is also a great time to play and tweak with your finishing touches—elements like the colours you have chosen for the walls can be easily amended then and there, before a single brush has painted the physical wall itself. This can give you a whole new perspective on your room and is something that can usually only be achieved with several tester paint pots, costing you wasted time and money.

What is in your head can be tricky to articulate to your architect, interior designer or builder. - LAWRENCE RANKIN, FOUNDER, NuVuw

Born out of the trials and tribulations of a keen property developer, NuVuw is an application that gives you full control. 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.”

Even if you already have your 2D plans agreed, get modelling them in 3D now. Not only will it really bring the project to life, but it can also highlight any areas that may need changing or improving, that you would not have seen in a 2D view.

ABOUT NUVUW NuVuw is the simple, smart, intuitive application that gives you end-to-end control of the design, project planning and management of property development and renovation projects. Whether you are designing a new build, renovating an existing one, or adding an extension NuVuw can help you with every step.

TRAVEL

7 FOODIE ADVENTURES YOU CAN’T MISS IN TORONTO 1  A variety of nationalities make up its population, so it’s no surprise the Canadian city is bursting with flavour, says Jemma Crew. Toronto is a city of immigration, bringing with it the promise of new flavours, fusions and truly global choice. Specialities include deepfried sweet dough covered in sugar, known as beavertails, melt-in-themouth butter tarts and maple, well... everything; butter, syrup - even water. Pop into BeaverTails on the harbour front to pick up some sugary goodness to enjoy on a boat tour ‘round the islands. Or wander through the historic St Lawrence market - ranked the world’s top food market by National Geographic. Wherever you stumble, your belly will thank you. Here are seven of our most satisfying recommendations. BELOW: The cool decor at Planta. (Picture credit: PA Photo/Jemma Crew)

BEST FOR A HEALTHY TREAT - PLANTA

Natural light floods this split-level restaurant, dotted with banana trees, coconut palms and foliage wallpaper to reflect its plant-based ethos. With no meat or dairy in sight, this eatery serves up a baba ganoush dip so creamy it’s criminal. But the real heroes here are the desserts. Try a melt-in-the-mouth avocado and lime cheesecake with a dusting of desiccated coconut and a tart swirl of raspberry coulis. Or perhaps a coconut, basil and chia seed pudding, served in a coconut husk with passion fruit sorbet? An energising ginger shot will send you on your way and aid the digestive process. Mains around $20CAD (£12). Visit plantatoronto.com

RIGHT: a Toronto street at night. (Picture credit: PA Photo/thinkstockphotos)

2 

BEST FOR LIQUID SENSATIONS - DISTILLERY DISTRICT WALKING TOUR The Booze, Death And Cholera Walking Tour is undoubtedly the best way to learn about Toronto’s liquid history. Hear about the rise of Gooderham & Worts from lowly windmill to the world’s largest distillery, and visit the derelict factory buildings transformed into a creative hub of stores, breweries and theatres. Upgrade to the Taste Of The Distillery District Tour, and you can sample some drinks and snacks, too. Sip Ontario sake out of choko glasses, try a selection of local craft ales, and nibble on tiny amaretto biscuits. FAR LEFT: map with Toronto marked. (Picture credit: PA Photo/thinkstockphotos)

94

LEFT: a shop in the Distillery District. (Picture credit: PA Photo/Tourism Toronto)


TRAVEL

Pick from a small selection of sharing plates - most of which are vegetarianfriendly - while the buttermilk-fried horntail screams out for a nibble. Non-Potter enthusiasts are welcome, provided they ‘be kind and respect our heroines’. Cocktails around $10CAD (£6). Visit thelockhart.ca

4 

BEST FOR SUPER SCOOPS - BANG BANG ICECREAM

Desperate for a slurp of these scoops of creamy delight, some people queue for two hours with just a tantalising waft of cinnamon to keep them going. Open for three years, this unassuming storefront is easy to miss, with no space to sit inside and only a few benches. Crowds often gather on the pavement in groups as they polish off a scoop of Burnt Toffee, which is a favourite. Also available are London Fog, an earl grey-infused hint of home, Cinnamon Toast, and - another great recommendation - Lychee, Rosewater and Raspberry. Get four kiddie scoops if you can’t decide - and who would blame you? Single scoop $3.99CAD (£2.50). Visit bangbangicecream.com BELOW: A colourful cafe in Toronto (Picture credit: PA Photo/thinkstockphotos)

The highlight is trying the 70% cacao chocolate, invented by accident when a mixer was left on all weekend, creating a silky-smooth fondant. Tours start from £19CADpp (£11.50) plus tax. Visit gotourscanada.com/ walking-tours

3 

BEST FOR MAGICAL POTIONS - THE LOCKHART

Harry Potter lovers rejoice - this bar was conjured up with you in mind. There are Befuddlement draughts to be shared and photo opportunities aplenty in this cosy magical hideaway in Dundas West, which opened in 2015. Cocktails on the parchment-style menu include the Gin Weasley and Better Beer Pitcher. Photos of Dobby the House Elf adorn the walls, and a platform 9 and 3/4 sign sits above the small tables, where punters can enjoy the ‘free muggle wifi’. RIGHT: The Toronto skyline (Picture credit: PA Photo/thinkstockphotos)

95


TRAVEL

5 

BEST FOR YUMMY DESSERTS - LA BANANE

This upmarket French restaurant on Ossington Avenue only arrived on the Toronto food scene this year. Expect an impressive selection of meats and fruit de la mer, while delicate white asparagus with dill butter will tickle the taste buds of veggie diners. But the real treat is the Ziggy Stardust disco egg dessert ($50) which exists - chef-owner Brandon Olsen says because, “Sometimes, after a nice meal, I just want chocolate”. The first 100 sold out within days and, since January, more than 18,000 have been purchased. Each one takes three days to cast, paint and fill, but smashing it open to reveal the velvety-smooth truffles inside takes only a second. Mains around $30CAD (£18). Visit labanane.ca

6 

BEST FOR CHEESE AND WINE - TOCA

One of Toronto’s finest luxury hotels, the Ritz Carlton boasts Canada’s only cheese cave in its Italian restaurant TOCA, which houses 35 perfectly aged, local and international cheeses. Daily tours at 5.30pm tell you about the cheeses - each of which has a special story - while monthly cheese and wine pairings offer a two-hour festival of fromage. Visit ritzcarlton.com If cheese isn’t your thing, head outside to enjoy a spot of sun in the DEQ Terrace & Lounge, where a selection of light bites are available all day. Don’t miss the Frose - frozen rose, berries and martini in a wine glass.

7 

BEST FOR A DIRTY LATE NIGHT TREAT - SMOKE’S POUTINERIE A humble trio of cheese curds, chips and gravy, poutine is a classic dish from Quebec. It may not be your top choice of Canadian cuisine, but it’s a winning combination for most. Served in a cone, and available from this chain of diners dotted around the city, its their answer to a kebab - but with more creative freedom. Enjoy in the cold light of day or save it for post night-out munchies when the dancing’s done. Visit smokespoutinerie.com For more information on the destination, visit seetorontonow.com By Jemma Crew ABOVE: Interior of La Banane (Picture credit: PA Photo/La Banane)

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

WHO WANTS TO BE A LANDLORD? How long have you been a Landlord? Years? Recently? What made you become a landlord? A deliberate investment strategy? Accidental landlord? Is it everything you thought it would be...? I bought my first property at the tender age of 19, it was a three bedroom flat and I rented out 2 of the rooms and became a landlord. The rental income completely covered my mortgage and thoroughly enjoyed the company of my flat mates. Not in a million years, did I think back then I would end up pretty much dedicating my life to the property industry, which is nearly 30 years! The road has been a pretty good one, however, the last few years have given me so many sleepless nights, with the ever changing legislations that can result in huge fines and criminal records, I sometimes wonder why….? In some ways I am fortunate, as being heavily involved within the industry, I receive emails daily, updating me on the changes. BUT if you are a private landlord, how do you keep on top of it? It is the classic

‘you don’t know, what you don’t know’ GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation), will affect you? This is coming in next month (May 25th), if you are holding personal data belonging to your tenants, then you should perhaps be looking to join ICO (Information Commissioners Office). Can you prove you provided various documentation prior to a tenant signing a tenancy agreement? Do you follow the ‘right to reside’ checks requested by the immigration office? Do you know the implications of not being able to prove this? The government’s stance is, you are not entitled to be ignorant. If you are a landlord, you must take responsibility. So being a private landlord is hard, if you are not involved in property in some way. Choosing the right letting agent is also hard, there are so many rogue ones out there, I have seen agents come and go, very often with the deposit money, months of rents and even charging VAT when they are not VAT registered. I promise as the owner of Move On Sales and Lettings I will look after you and do my ‘absolute best and beyond’ to ensure you are fully compliant. Please talk to me and don’t have a sleepless night.

IF YOU ARE LOOKING TO RENT, BUY, SELL OR INVEST, THEN REMEMBER MOVE ON SALES AND LETTINGS. DON’T MISS OUR ADVERT ON PAGE 75. Have a good week! Sharon If you would like a friendly, no obligation chat regarding selling, renting or investing in property, then please Email sharon@moveon.biz or telephone 01202 711169. 118

Margaret, 75, living with cancer My day didn’t start too well. Everything had got on top of me and I felt really low. When I called the Macmillan Support Line, I didn’t know where to start. But somehow they helped me find the words. Just talking honestly about how I felt was such a relief. Now I don't have to cope with the bad days on my own. For cancer support at home, over the phone, call the Macmillan Support Line free

Have you considered just how much changes in Data Protection legislation will affect you, it doesn’t just apply to businesses? On Wednesday 23rd May we will be holding a free to attend evening presentation in Christchurch from 18.30 – 20.30 aimed at self-managing landlords.

• Can you afford a 20 million Euro penalty?

There will be an interesting & thought provoking presentation by leading property legal expert David d’Orton-Gibson.

In addition to GDPR, on this evening we will also discuss:

GENERAL DATA PROTECTION REGULATIONS (GDPR) Can you name the 6 lawful bases for data processing? • GDPR compliance starts with an audit – have you started yours? • GDPR WILL affect everything that you do and you WILL have to change your day-to-day processes to comply. • Do you know when you can lawfully give the tenant’s details to a contractor? • What plans do you have to ensure that your contractors are compliant, remember the gas man calls every year, what about that plumber who attends a leaky pipe? • What happens if you do not back up data?

• What is a privacy notice? Do you have one? What must it now state?

• MEES – what do you need to do when this new standard in energy efficiency measures affects your property? • Simple mistakes that could prevent you EVER being able to serve notice to your tenants! • New Gas legislation for landlords. The evening presentation is free to attend, all you need to do is call me on 01202 588920 to book your place & receive your invitation. 2 hours now could mean the difference between no fine and bankruptcy or could prevent you making mistakes which could mean you never being able to get rid of tenants!

KNIGHTS CARPETS A Family Run Business We love getting to know the independent businesses that make up our local area, so in an effort to find Dorset’s best independent carpet specialist, we sat down with owner/ operator Craig Knight, of Knights Carpets and Flooring to find out what makes this business so special. WHEN DID YOU START THE BUSINESS? It was actually my grandad that started the business back in the 60s. It started with one store, but with hard work and caring company values it eventually built into a sevenstore empire. In its time it has very much remained a family business. My grandad had 5 sons, (one being my dad) each of whom ran one of the stores, and I am continuing the family legacy with Knights Carpets, here in Poole. I had been working with my dad since I was 15-years old, assisting him as a carpet fitter from a young age. Fastforward to today, and I now have 25 years experience that I take with me to every job, and bring with me into the store for customers to fully take advantage of—in a good way.

We have moved around from a couple of industrial estates, and we did well from them, but our customers were asking us for a high-street presence and in 2014 this location became available. We took a leap of faith and it paid off. We opened the doors at 12pm Wednesday afternoon and by 12:01 customers were coming in and I’m very proud to say it’s doing really well. WHO’S IN YOUR TEAM? In the early stages I would handle all customer advising and the fitting, but since we moved to this store we’ve taken on a skilled fitter ‘Kevin’, who has been with us for five years, and we also have our apprentice ‘Billy’ who is incredibly talented and an important part of our team. Having our own in house team means that we all work to the same high standard. It also means that if a problem (rarely) occurs, our guys are out within 24 hours to fix it, whereas a subcontractor might already be tied to another job and unable to get out for 2 weeks. We also have ‘Chrissy’ and ‘Lisa’ who deal with all our admin and keep the finances running smoothly on a day-to-day basis.

WHAT MAKES KNIGHTS CARPETS UNIQUE COMPARED TO SAY, A BIG NAMED BRAND? It would be untruthful of us to say that we offer the rock bottom prices that the big chains do, with their volume of buying they can negotiate smaller prices, that’s just how it is. BUT—and it’s a big but—we like to think that everything we do, from our attentive and genuinely helpful customer service, to the attention to detail our fitters give, is that of a superior level to the big chains, and an honest one at that too. HOW DO YOU HAND-PICK THE BRANDS IN YOUR SHOWROOM? We always source the best quality brands, from the best ultra-soft carpets to the finest hard-wearing, design flooring because we want peace of mind that our customers are buying something from us that is going to last.

We also aim to get as many Britishmade products as possible, because there are some seriously amazing manufacturers in this country. We do also have suppliers in Germany and Belgium too, and they are the leading experts in their own specialist flooring.

WHAT DO YOU LOVE MOST ABOUT YOUR JOB? There are a few things actually... I love easing people’s nerves. Buying a carpet—or indeed carpets—isn’t the same as spending £50 on a dinner out somewhere; it is a big purchase and makes a huge difference to the space you’re carpeting. So I try to give our customers as much information as possible, and create an environment where they feel they can ask questions, so that they have the confidence to choose something that they really love. Nine times out of ten I get to see jobs from the begining to the end. From the initial visit to our store, through to seeing it all fitted and quality checking, and it’s a really rewarding experience to see customers so happy with the end result. WHAT DO YOU WANT PEOPLE TO FEEL WHEN THEY COME INTO THE SHOWROOM? I want people to feel confident that they’re buying from a reputable business, selling reliable products. I also want them to feel welcome, and relaxed, assured that as soon as they enter there won’t be an insistent

LIVING ROOM REVAMP A little update I looked at my living room for the first time the other day and thought humph—not ah! Not ooh! Just humph, and it got me thinking about what I could do, without turning the house upside down, to give it a little spruce up. This sudden need for change was sparked off of the back of one of my recent “adultciting” (ad•ult•citing—adjective: “A feeling of exhilaration brought on by an otherwise mundane acquisition that will significantly effect your day-to-day adult life”) purchases: the Dyson V7— cordless, I might add. Our current hoover—though kindly gifted as a house warming present by my parents—had given up its springcleaning fight and was making a noise that resembled something between a power drill and moped. You’re probably thinking, why is she telling us all this? Well, aside from the fact that I know that my target audience is my immediate family, it actually brings me onto my very first, and most important, point.

SPRING CLEANING WITH ELBOW GREASE (AND MAYBE WINE) You probably have your own unique cleaning regime worked out, but in this case, I’m talking about one of those deep, possibly uncomfortable, workout-equivalent cleans. I don’t want to teach you how to suck eggs with a “how to” cleaning guide, so I wont, but I will offer this bit of advice: go to your local supermarket, get your hands on some bleach, some anti-bac, polish—and some kind of reward for afterwards—and go to town on your home. I’d personally recommend roping in some help in the form of family or friends, or coffee and some motivating music. Note: When hoovering, be sure to look up. Cobwebs are not part of your new look.

INTERIORS

A PROPER PAINT-UP I am majorly guilty of doing little paint touch-ups throughout the year, which at the time look great, but once the sun, grease and dog hairs have had their way with the walls, they don’t exactly look uniform by the end of the year. With this in mind, I thoroughly recommend covering up the furniture and giving your living room a fresh coat of paint, not necessarily a different colour, but a full, fresh coat will give it a new lease of life—enough to fall back in love with it all over again.

SMELL GOOD FEEL GOOD ]Scent has a huge sensory impact on our enjoyment of a space, and different smells will evoke different feelings. A living room should be welcoming, and as it’s usually one of the first rooms you and your guests will enter, it’s definitely worth carefully selecting your fragrances. For me personally, there’s nothing worse than the smell of what I’d class as “toilet cover-ups”, this includes anything with that includes “sea breeze”, “magnolia”, or “forest” in the title. In this department it’s worth spending just a little more, and getting something that smells incredible and last longer. You can’t go much wrong with M&S’s new range, Library of Scent. With luxurious—if not Jo Malone-esk—scents including Pomegranate, Ginger, Fig and Cassis each fragrance offers its own unique

Add in a new and exciting accent colour, to give the room a whole new look. Accent colour trends for this year include—but are not limited to—Emerald Green, Dusty Pink, Burnt Orange and Navy, the likes of which work really well against a greying/neutral backdrop. Don’t be afraid to clash and definitely get some patterns in too.

FRESH GREENERY My last tip is to bring in some greenery. Ditch those dusty, dying plants and bring in some fresh, seasonal plants. I know it’s more work—and I am guilty of killing more than one plant— but real plants really are the best, aesthetically and for your health.

REVIVE YOUR TEXTILES Life is messy, and there’s no shame in it. But, if you can spare a solid few hours then I thoroughly recommend turning your attention to your textiles. Curtains, nets, cushion covers, blankets, even your sofa (if it is fabric); pull them down, take them off and give them a wash. This is probably going to take a bit of time, given that these are not small items, or you could even drop them off at a local Laundromat. If your cushions double up as a tray for TV dinners, then you might need to pay some more close attention to stains with a special fabric treatment, prior to washing. Check out the labels for the proper washing instructions, as they will vary fabric to fabric, and if all else fails–go shopping for new goods.

MEET; BH GARDEN SOLUTIONS A Professional Landscape Garden and Maintenance Business With little glimpses of sunshine finally breaking through our recently erratic weather spell, it’s time we started turning our home improvement intentions to more alfresco territories. With this in mind we spoke with the “all-things-landscaping” experts, Chris and Matt (Owners) at highly rated BH Garden Solutions, to find out more about their unique approach and how they have been transforming gardens in the local area for over 7 years.

A PEOPLE BUSINESS With Chris and Matt–possibly two of the friendliest business owners ever at the helm, it’s clear to see why so much of their customer feedback reflects their friendly, knowledgeable and professional approach. Having worked together in what feels like a previous lifetime—managing a windsurfing centre abroad—the dynamic duo has years of prior customer service experience, which has trickled down into their now established landscape gardening business. “It’s so important to us that every one of our team are as approachable as they are knowledgeable”, says Chris, “We want our clients to be able to ask any member of our team questions and to feel as involved in their project as they want to be”, he continues.

When they launched the company back in 2011 it started off as just the two of them, but now Matt and Chris manage a team of 10 talented individuals all of whom abide by the same ethos of putting customer service at the heart of the business. “Although we now have a larger team with multiple projects, Chris and I are a constant point of contact to clients throughout the process”, says Matt.

DEDICATION, QUALITY AND CARE

138

Chris and Matt started their business doing primarily maintenance work, fencing and small landscaping projects, but once word spread about the quality of their work and sociable approach, the work grew and sure enough, so did the size of the jobs. Now, seven years down the line Chris, Matt and the team take on an array of

landscape gardening projects - no one too big and this includes commercial projects, or too small - as well as running the maintenance arm of their business. When asked what their company values are, Matt explained, “Customer service, quality of work and communication. Communication is really important to us and we make a point of checking-in on projects on a daily basis. Ultimately, we want our clients and all involved, to be as informed as possible so that we create a high-level of trust, where they feel safe in the knowledge that they are getting exactly what they have asked for, with no hidden extras. It’s this fundamental belief that we follow from the initial consultation and quote, right through to the end of the project”.


OUTDOOR LIVING

SUPPORTING THE LOCAL AREA

FIXED QUOTES

Where possible, BH Garden Solutions use locally sourced materials in their projects. From indigenous wood and stone, to Dorset-based plant suppliers and the best specialists in the area, but above all, quality, at the most competitive price, is always their priority when it comes to sourcing materials.

BH Garden Solutions always offer fixed quotes, with itemised pricing so that you have a completely transparent overview of exactly how your money is being spent. Not only is this a refreshingly honest approach, but it gives clients the opportunity to pick and choose any parts of the project they may want to sacrifice, change or additional work they might want to add in to meet their budget. “It can sometimes be a real struggle to find the balance between what you want the finished results to look like and achieving this within your budget. But by breaking down the cost of each item we give clients the opportunity to dissect the project and make their own informed decisions, with the help and support of our knowledge and experience”, says Matt.

ADDED VALUE With the pace of life ever increasing and workloads piling up, how we spend our downtime is that much more important, which is why more of us are honing in on transforming our gardens into a year-round oasis. A good looking garden—the likes of which BH Garden Solutions can design, plan and create—can add enormous value to your quality of life, and moreover, add monetary value to your house. Chris comments, “…we had a call just the other day, from a couple whose garden we had transformed prior to them moving and they said that the garden had been one of the biggest attractions for the new buyers”.

If you would like to talk to BH Garden Solutions about any potential Landscaping or Garden Maintenance project, or if you have any questions or would just like to talk through some ideas, then don’t hesitate to get in touch for a friendly chat:

Great advice, and a really friendly company to communicate with. What a fabulous job they have done. Excellent company. — SIMON, BOURNEMOUTH.

5 WAYS TO GET RID OF BINDWEED Bindweed is one of the most difficult of weeds to eradicate - but there are ways to stop it strangling your plants If those telltale tendrils are twisting their way up your plants, chances are bindweed has got a hold in your beds, borders and hedges. And despite the pretty white or pink trumpet-shaped blooms it produces, you really won’t want it strangling your plants. It’s one of the hardest perennial weeds to eradicate because of its deep roots. If you decide to dig the weed out, you’ll need to be careful as the roots break easily and each piece left in the ground will produce a new plant. It chokes your plants and can quickly take over whole sections of garden, smothering everything in its path. So how can you tackle it? PA Photo/Hannah Stephenson

PA Photo/Hannah Stephenson

1 

SNIP OFF WEED AT BASE Once you have identified the plant (whose thick white roots run deep and also run horizontally, growing stems and leaves where they surface), see how much of it there is. If you just have a small patch, remove the top growth weekly to weaken and eventually kill the plants. Cut the bindweed at the base with scissors or shears, which will force it to use up its energy reserves in its roots, which will eventually kill it - but you have to do it regularly.

2 

140

SPRAY IT Use a spot weedkiller, taking care not to let it spread on to other plants, preferably a systemic type - glyphosate - which the plants’ leaves will absorb and take down to the roots, killing the whole thing. For maximum effect, do this in early summer when the bindweed is in full growth. Place bamboo canes where you see it to allow it to wind up them, so you can paint the weedkiller on the leaves for maximum effect.

PA Photo/Hannah Stephenson

3 

POUR BOILING WATER OVER IT If you don’t want to use weedkiller, pour boiling water over the bindweed and around three inches beyond where it is growing, to kill as much root as possible. You may have to do this regularly until there is no further sign of it.

4 

DIG UP AFFECTED PLANTS If your plants are engulfed in a mass of bindweed, you’ll have to dig up those you want to save and untangle them from the weeds, making sure you remove any traces of weed roots growing among the

roots of the plants themselves, and temporarily pot the plants in compost. Wait several weeks until the weeds are growing strongly, then spray with glyphosate. After a few weeks, all the weeds should have died and it should be safe to replant.

5 

COVER THE AREA If you garden organically, dig up the plants you want to save, removing weed roots from the plants’ own roots, then cover the whole area with black polythene and leave it for a year.

NEW VW T-ROC WORDS BY NICK FLETCHER

Volkswagen’s T-Roc, a sporty SUV with a coupé silhouette, is a real headturner and establishes a new level of design cachet for the brand, writes NICK FLETCHER. With its compact shape and lots of personalisation options, it comes with a choice of responsive engines and a new chassis that blends sporting fun with everyday comfort. The car is beautifully balanced for composed handling on twisty roads, yet can be compliant and comfortable around town. And whether in city streets or on country roads, its striking visual persona makes a strong impression. Inside there’s more space for passengers and luggage than in a Golf - thanks to the increased height- plus plenty of hitech connectivity, autonomous driving and safety kit available. Another pluspoint is the higher seating position for better visibility, and extra space inside in a footprint that’s no larger than an average family hatchback.

144

The line-up of engine choices features three petrol and two diesel, with varying power outputs. Four-wheel drive is also an option, as are auto gearboxes with some engines.

All Volkswagen T-Roc models boast a high level of standard kit, including infotainment system with an eightinch colour touchscreen, CD player, DAB radio, Bluetooth, dual-Zone air conditioning, automatic headlights and LED running lights. The T-Roc has been awarded a five star safety rating from Euro NCAP, thanks in part to its six airbags and advanced driver assistance systems. These include Electronic Stability Control and Lane Assist. In addition there is Front Assist, which uses radar to help prevent frontal accidents.

In Design trim, the T-Roc starts at £21,130, with a variety of personalisation and styling elements. This look is enhanced by the 17-inch alloy wheels and tinted rear glass. Sport-style body-coloured bumpers and twin chrome-effect trapezoid exhaust tailpipe surrounds enhance the distinctive look. The hi-spec T-Roc R-Line version, from £26,450, has more potent appearance, and comes with sports suspension, roof spoiler, R-Line design front and rear bumpers, black wheel arch extensions, body-coloured side skirts and unique R-Line badging.

Featuring an upgraded cabin, revised styling and enhanced technology, plus the UK debut of Mazda’s cylinder deactivation 2.5-litre petrol engine, the updated Mazda6 also sees the 2.2-litre diesel engine benefit from a power upgrade to 181 hp. There are 24 models across four trim levels: SE-L Nav+, SE-L LUX Nav+, Sport Nav+ and GT Sport Nav+. Matched exclusively to the new rangetopping GT Sport Nav+ trim, Mazda’s 2.5-litre SKYACTIV-G engine makes its UK debut in the Mazda6. With a cylinder deactivation system, this direct-injection four-cylinder engine seamlessly switches between four and twocylinder operation to improve fuel economy without reducing performance. The 2018 car adopts a fresh frontal design focused around a new grille and revised LED headlamps. At the rear, the Saloon has a remodelled boot lid, while both the Saloon and Tourer feature cleaner rear bumper styling with more body coloured areas. New materials and technology combined with refinements to the cabin design deliver what Mazda describes as “an understated sense of luxury.” With an increase in standard active safety equipment across the range, all models now feature a huge range of advanced i-ACTIVESENSE technology including Blind Spot Monitoring with rear cross traffic alert, Mazda Radar Cruise Control, Lane Keep Assist and Advanced Smart City Break Support.

ROAD TEST: MITSUBISHI ECLIPSE CROSS The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross is a new small SUV just launched in the UK, offering smart styling, cabin versatility and the reassurance of a five year warranty, writes NICK FLETCHER. The sector is highly competitive - rivals include the Peugeot 3008 and SEAT Ateca – but Mitsubishi has a strong reputation for reliability which is a big plus-point, as is the striking look of the Eclipse Cross in an image-sensitive marketplace. Priced from £21,275, this newcomer offers three trim levels and either two-wheel drive or four-wheel drive depending on model. All variants are powered by a 1.5-litre turbocharged petrol engine, mated to six-speed manual or all-new eightspeed CVT automatic transmission. Standard kit includes Smartphone connection compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, touch-pad controller, rear view camera, DAB radio, climate control, LED Daytime running lights, and alloy wheels. Safety features include Lane Departure Warning and Forward Collision Mitigation, which uses radar technology to detect collision risk.

Eclipse Cross looks and feels a good package for the money, and its interior space makes it very family-friendly. The rear seats slide for variable load/occupant versatility and they do fold flat for easier loading. The cabin has an upmarket look, the controls are wellplaced and the seating is very comfortable. My only negative is that the tailgate screen has a central bar which though hardly impeding vision, may be mildly distracting to some. My test model was a flagship version adding extra kit including leather upholstery and panoramic sunroof. With manual gearbox and front wheel drive, this model costs £24,975. The 1.5 litre 161 hp turbo-petrol engine is smooth and eager, with a top speed of 127 mph and a 0-60 mph time of 10.3 seconds. Fuel economy is 42.8 mpg, with emissions at 151 g/km. Ride quality is excellent - the Eclipse Cross proves composed on cornering and the steering has good feedback. The car looks good, drives well and should give the Mitsubishi brand a real boost.

FASTER MUSTANG The new Ford Mustang - available this summer - will be sleeker, faster and powered by an enhanced 5.0 litre 444 hp engine. There will be a choice of a 6-speed manual gearbox or a 10-speed automatic. Prices have not yet been announced. Available in fastback and convertible body styles, the Mustang now features more refined aerodynamics, and is enhanced with LED lighting technology, and a choice of 11 bold exterior colours and new alloy wheel options. The Mustang’s 5.0-litre Ford V8 engine offers a 0-60 mph time of 4.3 seconds when combined with Ford’s new 10-speed automatic gearbox. The car has adjustable suspension and selectable Drive Modes, including a new customisable My Mode option. Fuel consumption is 23.3 mpg combined, emissions 270 g/km. “Typically, when you shift gears, you lose time,” said Matthias Tonn, Mustang chief programme engineer, Ford of Europe. “The Mustang’s new 10-speed transmission enables the engine to deliver peak power and torque while up-shifting, for faster acceleration and seamless performance.”

Mustang driver assistance technologies include PreCollision Assist with Pedestrian Detection and Lane Keeping Aid. A contemporary, upscale interior features soft-touch materials and a 12-inch all-digital instrument cluster.


MOTORING

NEW MERCEDES C-CLASS MODELS Mercedes-Benz has announced new versions of its C-Class coupe and cabriolet models, which will be on sale in April. They feature sharper design, digital cockpit and sports suspension, plus new fourcylinder engines. Prices will be confirmed shortly.

ROAD TEST: TOYOTA AURIS HYBRID Toyota’s Auris is one of the few full hybrids in the compact hatchback class, able to run on electric power alone, and this gives it a distinct advantage when it comes to low running costs, writes NICK FLETCHER. Rival ‘mild’ hybrids just use an electric motor to aid the petrol engine, but don’t store power for electric-only use, so the Auris delivers better fuel economy and lower emissions, plus lower tax rates for business users. The latest Auris has sleeker styling, upgraded equipment and is powered by a 1.8 litre petrol engine mated to an electric motor and electric CVT auto transmission. That combination results in a 0-60 mph time of 10.9 seconds and top speed of 112 mph, fairly typical in its sector. However, combined fuel economy of 72.4 mpg and emissions of just 91 g/km are very impressive. Auris prices start at £20,155 though my Design Bi-Tone model was higher specification and costs £23,555. Features include auto air-conditioning, power windows, auto lights and

wipers, front and rear parking sensors, 7-inch touch-screen, DAB radio/CD player, Bluetooth, and rear view camera. There is also plenty of safety kit including pre-collision system, lane departure warning and road sign assist. On the move, Auris is smooth, quiet, composed and refined. At low speeds and over short distances, the car can be driven on electric power alone. When there is insufficient power in the battery, the Auris automatically uses the petrol engine, a simple no-fuss system. You get most benefit from the system in urban traffic, though the Auris is a comfortable motorway cruiser too. It’s a smart-looking all-rounder with good family practicality. A roomy four seater - five at a squeeze - it has a large 435 litre boot, expandable to 1,200 litres by folding the rear seats. As diesel cars are waning in popularity and likely to be more highly taxed in the future, hybrid sales are already rising and the commonsense plus-points of the Auris underline why.

Highlights include: • Standard-fit LED High Performance headlights with new design or optional MULTIBEAM LED headlights with ULTRA RANGE Highbeam • Enhanced interior with digital cockpit (31.2 cm/12.3 inches), larger media display (26 cm/10.25 inches), new multifunction steering wheel with touchcontrol buttons. • Additional sound system with nine loudspeakers and an output of 225W as a new optional extra • New suspension including damping characteristics adjustable in three stages and Sports Direct-Steer system

NEW HYUNDAI TUCSON Set to go on sale this summer, the new Hyundai Tucson compact SUV, which has refreshed styling, revised powertrain line-up and more advanced technology features. Prices have not yet been announced. New Tucson is powered by two diesel and two petrol engines, all revised to reduce size and improve CO2-emissions. The most powerful is the 2.0 diesel engine with 184 hp. It has four-wheel drive and can be paired with a six-speed manual transmission or with the newly developed eight-speed automatic transmission. The latest Hyundai SmartSense active safety and driving assistance features available in the new Tucson include Autonomous Emergency Braking, Lane Keep Assist , Driver Attention Warning and Speed Limit Indicator Function. The safety package includes Surround View Monitor which uses cameras to provide 360° vision during reversing. Other equipment includes LED headlamps, High Beam Assist and rain-sensing wipers. Using front radar sensors, the Tucson’s Advanced Smart Cruise Control keeps constant speed and distance from the vehicle ahead by automatically accelerating and braking to ensure an efficient and safe ride.

THRIFTY FAMILY FEASTING As Eat Well For Less? Ella Walker finds out what hosts Gregg Wallace and Chris Bavin have learned about cutting costs without sacrificing flavour. We all do it, plump for the shop-bought baguette rather than the home-stuffed pitta, put the ‘on-offer’ big name choccie biscuits in the trolley, even though the own-brand ones taste identical and are still a quid less than the ones on sale. But instead of sweeping an aisle’s worth of BOGOF deals and ready meals into your basket, there is another way. The series’ accompanying book, Eat Well For Less - Family Feasts On A Budget, written by Jo ScarrattJones, sets out to combat that reliance. Packed with practical meal planning ideas and tips, it features cut-out-and-keep shopping lists and menu plans, as well as conversion charts and details on how long to store stuff in the fridge and freezer for before it goes mushy or mouldy.

Then there are the recipes, all designed to be walletfriendly staples that, when it comes to the final scraps and leftovers, families will (lovingly) fight over. Their main aim though is to extinguish the belief, understandably held by lots of people who have too little time and too many mouths to feed, that cooking is just another chore - “like ironing or hoovering,” notes Wallace, “and not in any way fun or something that could bring the whole family together. I want [people], more than anything, to realise that good, nutritious and tasty food doesn’t have to take time or cost a lot of money.” Bavin adds: “We are all under more time pressure, families are leading busier lives than ever and the window to make a meal is getting smaller. We are also being convinced of the idea that cooking isn’t convenient, or is harder than it is, which is where

convenience foods and meal solutions come in to save the day - but not our wallets. “I would love families to try and spend more time cooking and eating together. With a bit of planning, you can save hundreds if not thousands of pounds.” By Ella Walker, Press Association

Ingredients

Hicken Tikka Masala With Rice (Serves 4)

100g natural yoghurt 1tsp dried chilli flakes 1tsp garam masala 1tsp smoked paprika 1tbsp medium curry powder 1/4tsp sea salt 5cm piece of fresh root ginger, peeled and finely chopped or grated 4 garlic cloves, finely chopped or grated 500g boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into small chunks 2tbsp rapeseed oil 1 onion, diced 1tbsp tomato puree 400g tin chopped tomatoes 300g basmati rice 2tbsp chopped coriander

Method Tip the yoghurt into a bowl, then add the spices, salt, ginger and garlic and mix really well. Add the chicken and stir until completely coated. If you have the time, cover and place in the fridge overnight, but if not, cover and chill while you saute the veg. Heat a saute pan until medium hot, then add the rapeseed oil and onion and stir well. Cover, reduce the heat to medium-low and cook for about 10 minutes until softened and just coloured, stirring occasionally. Stir in the tomato puree and cook for one minute, then add the tomatoes and bring to a simmer. Add the marinated chicken and all the marinade, stir through, then bring to a gentle simmer, cover and cook for 15-20 minutes until the chicken is cooked through and the sauce thickened slightly, stirring occasionally. You don’t want the sauce to boil otherwise the yoghurt will split - just a gentle simmer.

Meanwhile, bring a large saucepan of salted water to the boil, add the basmati rice and cook according to the packet instructions until tender, then drain. Stir the coriander into the sauce and serve the chicken tikka masala with the hot rice.


FOOD & DRINK

Quick Fish Pie (Serves 3)

PA Photo/BBC Books/Howard Shooter

Ingredients

Method

For the potato topping: 600g potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks 40ml semi-skimmed or skimmed milk 40g mature Cheddar cheese, grated

Preheat the oven to 200C/Gas mark 6.

For the fish pie mixture: 25g butter 25g plain flour 400ml semi-skimmed or skimmed milk Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste 400g pack fresh or frozen fish pie mix (if frozen, defrost in fridge overnight) 2 carrots, peeled and coarsely grated 2 leeks, washed and diced To serve: 200g frozen peas 200g frozen sweetcorn

Prepare the potato topping. Put the potatoes into a saucepan and add enough cold water to just cover them. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 15-20 minutes until tender. Drain the potatoes well, then return to the pan, add the milk and mash together until smooth. Season to taste with salt and black pepper. While the potatoes cook, make the sauce for the fish pie mixture. Put the butter and flour into a small pan and mix together, then cook over a low heat for three to four minutes, stirring, until light golden brown and starting to look slightly grainy. Remove from the heat, gradually stir in the milk, then return to the heat and continue to cook and

stir until the sauce starts to bubble and thicken. Simmer gently for a minute or so, stirring, then season to taste. Put the fish pie mix into an ovenproof dish and mix in the white sauce, followed by the carrots and leeks. Top this with the mashed potato, covering the fish mixture completely. Sprinkle the grated cheese over the top, then transfer to the oven and bake for 30 minutes until golden brown on top and bubbling. Meanwhile, bring a saucepan of water to the boil, then add the peas and sweetcorn and simmer for three to four minutes. Drain well. Serve the fish pie with the mixed peas and sweetcorn alongside. 151

Broccoli & Parmesan Pasta (Serves 3)

PA Photo/BBC Books/Howard Shooter

Ingredients

Method

For the pasta: 300g plain wholemeal flour, plus extra for dusting 3 eggs 1tbsp olive oil 1/2tsp sea salt

First make the pasta. Put the flour into a large bowl, then make a well in the centre. Add the eggs, olive oil and salt to the well and whisk together, then gradually stir in the flour, pulling a little flour in each time you stir the mixture to make a smooth, firm dough. Flatten the dough into a disc about 1cm thick, then wrap in cling film and chill in the fridge for 20 minutes.

For the sauce: 180g broccoli, cut into florets and the stem into thick slices 4 tinned anchovies, drained and roughly chopped 3tbsp extra-virgin olive oil 20g Parmesan cheese, finely grated Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Unwrap the chilled dough and lay it on a lightly floured work surface, then cut it in half. Roll out each portion of dough to a rectangle about 5mm thick, turning it as you go to ensure you have an even thickness, then roll each portion again to about 2mm thick - the thinner the better. When the pasta is as thin as you can get it, cut it into strips about 3mm wide for tagliatelle, or thinner for linguine. Hang the pasta strips over a clean broom handle or rolling pin to allow them to dry slightly while you cook the broccoli for the sauce.

152

Bring a saucepan of water to the boil, then add the broccoli and cook for four to five minutes until just tender. Drain well, set aside and keep warm. Bring a separate large saucepan of salted water to the boil. Add the pasta, return to the boil and cook for three to four minutes until the pasta rises to the surface. Drain in a colander, reserving some of the cooking water, then return the pasta to the pan. Add the broccoli, anchovies and olive oil to the pasta and toss well to combine. Add about two tablespoons of the reserved pasta water and cook for one minute, stirring as you go. The pasta should be evenly coated in the sauce. Season to taste, then pile the pasta into serving bowls, sprinkle over the Parmesan and serve immediately.

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

THE GLOWING SKIN SMOOTHIE

The health of your skin says a lot about the way that you eat. The condition of your skin really reflects what you put into your body and a healthy diet is really an inside out approach to healthy skin. The healthier you are on the inside the more it shows on the outside. Diets rich in fruits and vegetables are good for us and great for our Skin! A regular intake of healthy foods reduces inflammation and decreases the likelihood of breakouts. This glowing skin smoothie is not only energy boosting and delicious, it has dramatically improved my skin tone. One of my favourite smoothie recipes, by far. I drink it 5-7 times per week. I did a lot of research in the beginning of the year about which foods can help improve my skin tone. Since giving up caffeine 6 months ago and seeing the untold benefits of that I’m much more aware of how the things I eat and drink can dramatically effect my skin, body and overall health. There were obvious finds like salmon, broccoli, and almonds. But I also stumbled upon a whole list of foods I already enjoy, but don’t eat on a regular basis. So I bought a bunch, blended them up, and today’s smoothie was created. I’ve been drinking this glowing skin smoothie everyday for the past 2 months and have noticed a huge difference in not only my energy, but my skin has never looked better. And the best part? This green smoothie actually tastes good. Like, really really good. It’s now one of my favourites. A few things first about the ingredients... ✓ The avocado. Don’t leave it out! Avocados hydrate the skin, bringing back that glow we all love.

✓ Spinach OR kale may be used. Both nutrient dense super foods, removing toxins from our bodies. I eat both everyday, either in an omelette, salad, wrap, homemade juice etc. High in Vitamin A. ✓ Coconut water. This stuff is so good for us. It’s incredibly hydrating and makes skin look more youthful and supple. I wasn’t a huge fan of coconut water when I first tasted it, but I now love Naked’s pure coconut water. ✓ The Flaxseeds are optional but are high in Omega 3 Fatty Acids which are a necessity for healthy skin turnover.

The frozen banana and avocado leave it incredibly thick, the mango and pineapple sweeten things up, the coconut water adds a tropical flare, and the greens pack one HUGE nutrient punch. Your skin will love it.

Ingredients 1/2 cup plain coconut water1 2 frozen ripe bananas, previously peeled & sliced 1 cup chopped pineapple (frozen or fresh) 1 cup chopped mango (frozen or fresh) 2 cups spinach or kale 1/2 avocado, sliced Optional: 1 Tablespoon ground flax or flaxseed oil

Method

Just a few more things…

1. Make sure you have a strong, powerful blender. I like a Ninja or a Vitamix.

Do not add sugar. There is no added sugar in this smoothie recipe because we are using sweetness from the fruit. Mangoes, bananas, and pineapples are plenty sweet, so there is no need for anything more.

2. Add all of the ingredients to the blender in the order listed. Blend on high for at least 3 minutes or until smooth. Scrape down the sides of the blender as needed. Add more coconut water if it’s too thick.

No tins, please. Use only fresh or frozen ingredients. Take advantage of summer’s sweet fresh pineapple and mango!

Try adding 1/2 cup blueberries. Another super food great for your skin! If you do not like any of the fruits listed, simply replace with another fruit used. Or add strawberries or blueberries.

If you’re replacing a meal with this smoothie, try adding a little flax or flax oil. Your skin needs oil to keep it lubricated. 2-3 teaspoons per serving is perfect.

✓ The mangos and pineapple. Mangos contain carotenoids, which help our skin glow. Carotenoids help give a rosy glow to dull looking skin. And pineapples are high in vitamin C and E, which I’ve learned is key to the production of collagen – giving our skin its firmness and strength.

Just blend and enjoy and let your skin reap the benefits!

On 29 September you can join the local charity and take on this unique opportunity during a 12-hour hike across the Dorset hills. Participants will trek 26 miles across the Wessex Ridgeway and to the peaks of Lewesdon Hill, Pilsdon Pen and Bulbarrow Hill. These are the three biggest peaks in Dorset and within one day you will be ascending a combined height of 1,350 meters – higher than Ben Nevis. To take part in the Dorset 3 Peaks event, an entry fee of £35 applies and a minimum fundraising target of £265. If you book your place before 1 April you can receive a £5 discount. Your fundraising could achieve the daily cost to run the advice service to provide guidance and support, specialist toys for children with disabilities to play with, a day’s vital medical supplies for the children at the charity’s specialist school and much more. For further information and event details, please visit: www.diverseabilities.org.uk/dorset-three-peaks/ If trekking isn’t your thing, find out what other exciting events Diverse Abilities has to offer by visiting the charity’s website at www.diverseabilities.org.uk/events or call the fundraising team on 01202 718266.
