He said: “I have a target which is to raise £3,000 and, after any necessary expenses, proceeds will be presented to the Royal Bournemouth and Christchurch Hospitals.

Here at House Magazine we love to report news on companies but what we love more is to tell stories of charitable Entrepreneurs, and Matthew Howgate (Owner of Bourne Lifts) is a wonderful example of how small businesses can make a difference.

“Over the years the local NHS has helped not only my family and myself, but also close friends across a wide range of issues. I have always raised funds for children’s charities.”

We asked Matt why he decided Cancer Research deserved his donation. He replied “When Andy Hudson (Project Manager, Bourne Lifts) came to me and asking for a donation, my first reaction was “which charity?”, but then he told me his friend Kerry Dexter was running in the London Marathon for Cancer Research. Instantly I said yes as its for such a well known and committed charity and I myself have run a few marathons. I have had family members that have suffered from this terrible disease and felt my donation was defiantly going somewhere that would

DORCHESTER’S NEW IMMERSIVE MUSEUM BRINGS 200 YEARS OF CRIME TO LIFE The historic town of Dorchester, Dorset will be the home to a major new attraction, Shire Hall Historic Courthouse Museum, when it opens its doors to the public on 1st May 2018. Shire Hall will help people of all ages explore the history of law and order, as well as past and present efforts to achieve justice for all people. After all, it is where the Tolpuddle Martyrs were brought to trial, which sparked the Trade Union movement. Visitors will be able to walk in the footsteps of people who were tried and sentenced in the court, and use the interactive displays to find out what happened to them. From exploring the depths of the cells to standing in the dock of the famous courtroom, families will be able to discover the remarkable stories of the people who passed through the building and explore what it means when we say “crime,” what we want when we demand punishment for those crimes and how we can all make the present-day world that little bit fairer. 200 years of justice, injustice, crime, and punishments will be brought to life, through the stories of people executed

LEGISLATION MAKING IT DIFFICULT FOR LANDLORDS TO LET WITHOUT AN AGENT for arson, transported for asking for fair pay, and sentenced to hard labour for stealing clothes or food. The first exhibition at Shire Hall will look at the Civil Rights Movement in the US and protest movements in the UK. As part of this, a group of young people will be putting together a display on Dorset’s fascinating history of protest - from the Tolpuddle Martyrs trial and Swing Riots of the 1830s to the Cider Riots of the 1750s and the Women’s Strikes in Bridport in the early 20th century. The young people will be working side by side with museum staff and the Dorset History Centre to unearth these fascinating stories of protest and rebellion. The new museum is run by the Shire Hall Trust, a registered charity. The renovation was made possible thanks to a £1.5m grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund, which was match-funded by West Dorset District Council. For more information visit shirehalldorset.org, search @ DorsetShireHall on Facebook and follow @ShireHallDorset on Twitter.

RENTAL PROPERTIES URGENTLY REQUIRED Goadsby Poole Lettings Department are reaching out to all Landlords as they urgently require more properties to offer their extensive list of professional applicants. The Poole lettings team are letting properties incredibly fast and with an ever-expanding register of quality applicants are in need of more properties to avoid tenants being left disappointed. This has also meant rental figures are continuing to rise, with many landlords having a choice of applicants vying for their property. Claire Martin, Lettings Manager comments, “We have a strong market in Poole and demand for good quality properties is rife. As soon as properties

are coming to the market they are being snapped up in no time at all. We have found that our success in Poole comes from a strong lettings team on hand, aided by our proactive approach to marketing. Along with our network of 25 local offices, a centralized Property Management Department and over 70 dedicated lettings staff who are available 6 days per week, Goadsby strive to provide the best possible service for their landlords and tenants alike.” For further information on renting your property and the services Goadsby can provide please contact Claire Martin on 01202 686555 or via email on Claire. martin@goadsby.com.

TheHouseShop have confirmed there are over 145 individual laws and more than 400 regulations for landlords to follow and comply with in the private rental sector making it difficult for landlords to let property without the aid of expert advice. A survey conducted by TheHouseShop suggest that almost one in five landlords admit it is ‘impossible’ to keep up with the ever changing legislation and a further 30% of landlords saying it is ‘very difficult’ to keep up to date and compliant. Kate West, Divisional Lettings Director comments, “The Government is keen to implement new and changing legislation to ensure standards of the private rental sector are increased’ Kate continues ‘Whilst this is good news for the sector it can be a minefield for self-managing landlords to keep up to speed and compliant”. Goadsby pride themselves on ensuring they keep their landlords up to date and compliant and Kate urges any landlords looking to let their properties, or landlords that already have tenants in situ, to contact her for advice and to discuss how Goadsby can ensure they remain legally compliant. Kate can be contacted on 01202 432188 or kate. west@goadsby.com

ASK THE EXPERT ABOUT...

PLANNING YOUR MOVE Steve Webber, Director of Maidmans Moving & Storage Steve has many years’ experience in the moving and storage Industry. Mrs. R asked, ‘What advice can you give me about planning my move?’ Steve replied: “It is always advisable to call in a removal company at least 4 weeks in advance of your anticipated moving date. “Careful organisation and forward planning can certainly minimise the stress of moving to a new home. All British Association of Removers (BAR) members, are happy to offer a quotation as soon as you consider moving. This will help you plan your budget.

ASK THE EXPERT ABOUT…

DEPRESSION & FEELING WORTHLESS

“We can work from a provisional moving date and once you have a firm date, we can revisit and refine the quotation with any specific requirements you may need. “It is our policy to turn around all our quotations within a 24-hour period. When you sign & return the acceptance we will arrange the move for you.” Steve suggests it will be advisable to also consider the distance you will be moving. He says: “Moving longer distances or moving to a new country may mean that you need to arrange to ship items and arrange overnight accommodation. It is worth planning in case of issues such as customs and bio-security clearances, and any storage issues on arrival”. Here are some other pointers to help you achieve a stress free move: • Check you have insurance cover either from your remover or house insurer covering the move. • Make a list of everyone who should be notified about your change of address. • Notify the relevant utility companies of your departure. • Arrange for your post to be forwarded. • Check the estate agent has your contact detail to arrange the hand over of keys. • Use a BAR registered remover. • For a more detailed list call or email us.

• • • • • • • •

Restless, agitated, irritable, tearful Guilty, worthless and down on yourself Empty and numb Isolated and unable to relate to other people Finding no pleasure in life or things you usually enjoy A sense of unreality No self-confidence or self-esteem Hopeless / despairing / suicidal

I can truly empathise with all the feelings listed above. When I struggled with Post-Natal Depression after my son was born, it started as sadness, then I felt myself shutting down, becoming less capable of coping. I found it hard to make decisions – even simple things like what to eat or what to wear. Eventually, I just felt numb and empty. My life had turned from technicolour to a dull grey. It felt as though all hope had been sucked out of my body. And then I discovered the power of energy healing and positivity, and I got my life back.

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

Reiki energy healing and Life Guidance can help you to let go of those difficult heavy feelings, enabling you to gently move forward and rebalance your emotions. If you need help working through your depression, so that you can become your ‘true self’ once again, please give me a call.

HOLIDAY HOME OWNERSHIP

CARE FOR YOUR CARETAKER Don’t neglect a critical part of your business It’s not so long ago that the process of choosing and booking a cottage was difficult and time consuming for the guest and extremely arduous and expensive for the agency. Hundreds of thousands of expensive glossy brochures were sent out with printing, post and packing making these costs very high. Of course once your guest had the brochure and chose a cottage the process was just beginning. There was no way of seeing availability so the only way to find out was to call and check and the later in the season the longer the conversation would be as your first, second or all of your choices could already be booked. Finally the booking and payment process was manual and involved quite a few letters, forms and cheques going back and forth On the other side of the coin 10 or 20 years ago most holiday homes were looked after by a wonderful lady down the road who cleaned and did the laundry assuming you were upmarket enough to provide sheets. She might put a pint of milk in the fridge and if the guests had a problem they had to go and bang on her door or find a payphone to call and you probably paid £20 a changeover. Fast forward to today and things are very different, the majority of bookings are online with customers finding, selecting, booking and paying without speaking to us at all. Confirmations, balance reminders and arrival details all go out automatically and most traffic to the site is from natural search or via other platforms such as Trip Advisor or Airbnb. Caretaking however is a very different proposition indeed. Nothing less than a totally spotless property will do. Quality crisply ironed sheets, decent towels, goodies and there are plenty of luxury properties providing an experience as good as any high end hotel. Guests expect high standards at the property but what has really changed is the assumption that issues will be dealt with immediately and somebody is available at all hours. Owners doing their own thing with a local caretaker find themselves increasingly called out of dinner parties or interrupted at work to deal with a crisis that just can’t wait such as bad TV reception or a failed dishwasher! This has resulted in the rise of the caretaking company with supervisors and a range of people on call and solid growth for full service agencies combining marketing and caretaking. My previous piece about reviews only serves to emphasise how crucial it is to get things right. Everyone can have a bad day or an unreasonable guest but even 2 or 3 reviews consistently saying the place wasn’t clean will knock a big hole in your bookings and cost you a lot of money.

CARING FOR YOUR CARETAKER First of all remember that whether you are using an individual or an agency there is a person delivering the service who is not doing it for fun, they will be relying on the income and small things may make a big difference to them. • You need to pay a fair price but think very carefully before taking a cheap option- £30 a changeover might save you £500 or £600 a year but a bad job could cost you thousands in lost bookings. It might seem clever to pay off books but it means that effectively you are paying the tax at your rate on the money.

Most of these points are actually more about respect than money. Despite everything said so far my overwhelming experience is that normal market forces don’t apply. You will almost never persuade a caretaker to leave another owner by offering more money unless they are not feeling valued. Send Christmas presents, have a deep clean in quiet times to give extra work, give a little bonus at the end of a tough season. I appreciate you are able to own a holiday home because you don’t waste your money or run an efficient business but there will be a time when you really need to call upon the dedication and goodwill of your caretaker and you’ll be really glad that you are in a position to call in that favour

• Pay for a full clean when you stay yourself. Yes I know you always leave it nice but what you are doing is taking away the work from your caretaker. • Don’t beat down the price if your friends or mum stays and only use one bed etc. Most people pay a fixed fee and if you don’t pay extra for a difficult clean you need to pay up for an easy one. The travel, inconvenience, childcare etc involved means that the fair rate for a clean is not proportional to the number of hours spent. • Be considerate with last minute arrangementscalling to say you’ve decided to stay a few extra days when the caretaker has made arrangements to come is bad form • Make sure the tools and facilities for cleaning are good and don’t avoid replacing the hoover just because you think it’s fine (or it was for the ten years you used it before you sent it to your second home!)

OUTDOOR LIVING

DORSET DESIGN BUILD Case Study: Heritage Style THE BRIEF Where possible, we love to feature locally sourced materials, and this project in Swanage presented a great opportunity to do so, in an area of outstanding historical beauty. The garden had become overgrown and required drastic measures to address issues regarding uneven levels, unusable space and unmanaged planting. The side access to the garden was inaccessible and somewhat dangerous, whilst the grassed land to the west of the site was mounded and was unusable as a lawn space. Despite the various issues regarding the garden’s existing layout, the site held a large amount of potential. Historical rooftops to the east of

the site created a picturesque view looking outward, whilst to the west, a large historical church towered above the village.

THE DESIGN Our objectives during the design process were simple: re-establish levels and reclaim usable space—the rest was up to our team to craft and implement an exceptional, new look.

WORK IN PROGRESS Our first major challenge was to reclaim the land to the west. A strategy was devised to invert the current layout and convert the planted space into lawn, and the mounded lawn into a terraced planting area. By creating a retaining wall to secure a single level across the top of the garden, we

reclaimed usable space in which we created a seating area looking out over the historical rooftops surrounding the property. The wall was constructed using Dorset Oak sleepers and gave a very organic feel to the garden. BEFORE

44

Our second strategy was to convert the eastern part of the site from formal beds to a large lawn space. In creating the retaining wall, we maximised the lowest tier’s usable space and completely transformed the garden. A seating platform was created, designed to look west towards the historic church and connect with the local landmarks. To strengthen the connection to its context, we felt that it was important to mimic materials found in the surrounding area. To do this, we sourced local woods, stone and foliage to re-enforce a sense of heritage. Purbeck stone was used within the seating platforms to connect with the materials used in the house’s construction and neighbouring buildings, and the existing Purbeck dry stonewalls were restored to their former glory. Purbeck chippings were also used to form pathways connecting the platforms and strengthening the material connection.


OUTDOOR LIVING

THE END RESULT This project was challenging but rewarding in that our client now has a usable and safe garden that makes good use of previously unusable space, and connects to its local surroundings. Whilst designing, we like to give context to a garden and give a strong sense of place. Dorset is an incredibly beautiful part of the United Kingdom and many of its local sites hold a lot of history. A good use of materials and design intentions can really unlock a gardens potential and link it to its setting.

Having created two sun platforms, we decided to build a shaded seating area to the south of the site; thus we designed a natural pergola, using handpicked Dorset Cedar. The pergola was designed to have climbing jasmine around the outside to add both visual and sensory stimulation to the shaded hangout. The last feature added to the garden was a bespoke water feature created using a large Purbeck boulder. This element was added to the lower eastern platform to give the tranquil sound of running water and act as a stunning focal point.

THE PLANTING The site’s planting was broken up into four zones: sun, shade, woodland and sweep. The woodland planting was situated at the southern shaded area of the site; Atmospheric ferns, Liriope and Hellebors were among some of the planting introduced within this area, to bring vivacious colour and definition where it preciously lacked. The sun planting was designed to add interest and height around the two respective sun platforms, whilst aromatic herbs were also introduced into the eastern border to be used by the client.

A sweep of grasses and flowing plants were added onto the central border that surrounds the lawn. This was designed to flow with the wind and formalise the edge of the space. Shaded planting was added at the northern side of the site as the house blocked the majority of light in the garden. Lastly, to connect with the site’s local context, Virginia Creepers were added to flow down the sleeper wall and add a bit of atmosphere to the garden, as homage to a neighbouring pub that has the same creepers completely covering the building.

ASK THE EXPERT...

EMMA JANE INTERIORS Top Tips From a Top Interior Designer Re-designing or refurbishing your home can be a tricky task, and often the trickiest of all those tasks is brining all of your smaller ideas together into one cohesive, finished look. With this in mind, here are a few design rules I like to follow to help complete a successful refurbishment that flows with elegance and meaning.

1

In my experience, having a hint of one colour in each of your rooms binds the whole house together. For example, you might keep all the curtain rails the same colour/material. Maybe all in a dark oak to make each room look indulgent and extravagant. You can also pick up on the dark oak with wooden flooring, and maybe the odd stool or chair. Don’t over kill it though—less is more, and a hint in each room will be sufficient to give the flow of unity.

2

Paint all woodwork throughout the house the same colour. Use an eggshell paint to give a subtle shine, and likewise paint all ceilings in the same colour too.

3

Carpets can be different in each bedroom but unify the hall, stairs and landing in one colour. Personally, I do like all the carpets to be the same throughout the house, but ultimately is it up to you. Keep it in a neutral colour and most colour schemes will blend in beautifully.

4

If you have dark rooms, mirrors are a great way to double the light in a space. By placing them opposite a window, it will bounce the light to every corner.

5

If the budget allows, don’t scrimp on your sofa. Do your homework, and go and try as many as you can. It’s the largest piece of furniture in your sitting room and an item that’s not going to be replaced again for many years, so get it right. Most sofa companies have an extensive library of colours to choose from so this shouldn’t be a deal breaker.

6

Choose occasional chairs in a contrasting fabric. I love a bit of mix and match when I create my designs, and adding in a contrasting colour, pattern or fabric is the perfect way to add interest to the room. Hopefully that’s enough to get you on the right track, but please don’t hesitate to give me a call should you desire some additional design advice.

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? We have offices in Bournemouth and Poole and would be delighted to hear from you. Call Bournemouth on 01202 315005 or Poole on 01202 466669.

ROYAL CELEBRATIONS

cupcakes for guests to enjoy. Spectrum Palm Court Trio performed a wonderful collection of classical music, which was well-attended by residents, relatives and guests.

On Saturday, 21st April, two care homes in Dorset managed by Encore Care Homes, welcomed families, friends and the local community into the care homes to commemorate National Care Home Open Day and the Queen’s 92nd birthday.

Fairmile Grange, the residential, nursing and dementia care home in Christchurch, themed the event ‘Fit For A Queen’, which consisted of a variety of activities with local community groups. Christchurch’s local scouts helped residents feel like royalty by making crowns and flags. Dorset’s premier female choir, La Nova Singers, visited the home in all their finery and sang a repertoire of beautiful opera and classical pieces.

Residents and visitors were invited to take part in cake and scone tasting, which were provided by volunteers from Christchurch Community Partnership and the care home. To round off the funfilled day, Fairmile Grange hosted the talented Christchurch Music Centre, who performed their big band numbers in the garden – encouraging residents to get up and dance along to the well-known tunes.

Ian MacDonald, home manager of Great Oaks commented, “National Care Home Open Day is a fantastic way to engage with the local community and to show visitors the state-of-the-art facilities, which we have at our home. We believe it is very important for our residents to meet and interact with people outside of the home, and we were thrilled to see so many friends and relatives of residents come to celebrate this special day with us.”

Heidi Johnstone, activities coordinator of Fairmile Grange, said: “It was wonderful to see our residents so excited during the build-up and the day itself. We would like to say a massive thank you to all those who came along and got involved in making the day even more special for our residents. Bringing the community closer together and building relationships is something we believe is very important.” Just down the road in Bournemouth, Great Oaks care home celebrated the day with “A Right Royal Knees Up” event. Entertainer Tyler took to the stage to sing a collection of toe-tapping hits from the 1940s to present day, which had residents, relatives and staff on the dance floor. The professional chefs at Great Oaks baked a commemorative birthday cake for the Queen and 92 royally-decorated

TALKING BUSINESS

BUY TO LET MORTGAGES... TRICKY BUT STILL WORTHWHILE Whether you already hold a portfolio of investment properties or see yourself becoming a property landlord, it will come as no surprise to learn that obtaining a buy to let mortgage has become a little more difficult of late. For those trying to build a property empire, the latest set of requirements from the Prudential Regulation Authority has meant jumping through more loopholes to obtain a buy to let mortgage. From late 2017, landlords with four or more mortgaged buyto-let properties need to provide a full analysis of their borrowing commitments across their portfolio before a lender will agree a further mortgage loan. With the increased demand for home rental, a buy to let option still represents an affordable and sound financial investment in most cases, based on purchasing the right property, knowing which type of tenants you aim to attract, and fully understanding the rental potential whilst taking into account maintenance and any ongoing costs or fees.

Oliver Bishton from local independent mortgage broker Homeline Mortgages said, “Although the buy to let mortgage market has gone through a turbulent period, we are beginning to see significant changes from lenders. Some new products have recently come to market specifically for the buy to let borrower, with slightly better interest rates and fixed term options of 2 or 5 years. The buy-tolet mortgage you will be offered depends on your circumstances and the lender’s criteria. Typically, they will look for bigger deposits, strong rent to mortgage payments cover and other income streams. You will also need to be prepared for higher arrangement fees and a longer decision period.” For anyone thinking about applying for a buy to let mortgage, the best advice is not to go it alone. With the new rules and regulations and increased amount of number crunching involved, the services of a good mortgage broker will come into their own.

process. We have our finger on the pulse of which lenders are offering the most competitive deals, plus we help you with all the preparation and paperwork which can significantly enhance your chances of getting mortgage approval and speed up the process.” Despite the introduction of the 3% stamp duty levy, and the new stress tests for landlord mortgages, latest figures released reveal that the number of buy to let investors in the UK has hit an all-time high of 2.5m in the latest tax year. “Becoming a landlord is still an interesting proposition for many people, and at Homeline we are always happy to advise on all aspects of your mortgage application. We offer a free initial consultation to ascertain your chances of a successful buy to let mortgage application.” To book an appointment call 01202 937444 or visit www.homelinemortgages.co.uk A fee may be charged should you proceed with a Mortgage or

A TRIBUTE to EDITH EAU DE PARFUM

A rich, sensuous rose. Reminiscent of Paris in the jazz era, this is a sultry and compelling fragrance with geranium for a modern accent. This enigmatic fragrance unveils its beautiful secrets: the rose is surrounded by geranium and unexpected yarrow, embellished by rich and enveloping patchouli and liquor accents in the drydown. A tribute to Edith Piaf’s La Vie en Rose.

INTERVIEW

WEMOVE

A Remarkable Moving Experience We love getting to know the independent businesses that make up our community, particularly those that go the extra mile for their customers, and genuinely put everything into what they do. With this in mind, we met with Adam Maton, Founder of Wemove, to find out how this modernday removals business is honing their mission to stand out from the industries’ crowd, and deliver on truly great customer service. How did Wemove start? In a way, by accident. Like so many of us, Adam was tired of the corporate slog and wanted to expand his horizons outside of the office walls. It was following a year off travelling in China and returning to a spell of labouring at a friend’s business, that he first stumbled on the idea of a removals business. “I was working on

a site, when a friend asked if I knew of a reliable Man and Van service, so I decided to volunteer myself. I started doing small jobs moving the odd bit of furniture, but I always stayed true to things that I thought mattered, like turning up on time, following through on the things I’d promised, and just generally being a friendly human being”, Says Adam.

88

The jobs got more frequent and the business grew, and Adam knew he could no longer do this on his own, so he enlisted the help of his brother, who’d previously worked in removals, to join the team. The pair worked hard day in and day out, paying close attention to ways in which they could do things differently to the stereotypically rough-around-theedges removal guys, and sure enough the growth continued. Today, Wemove

is a close-knit family who all strive to be the best at what they do. What makes Wemove unique? Following one of their core values, “embrace the difference”, Wemove are dedicated to dispelling the stereotypes and proving, through their friendly, honest and jargon-free approach, that although moving is stressful, moving day doesn’t have to be. From the initial call with Helen (aka Mama Wemove) in the office, to the genuine pleasure of helping you from their removals team, Wemove aim to make their service as friendly and as human as possible. The core team have been together since the beginning of the business and are all proud of the great reputation they have built. The genuine customer reviews on CheckaTrade and Which Trusted Trader back this up.


INTERVIEW

Who makes up the Wemove team? We’ve already introduced some of the team—Helen, the Operations Manager and of course Adam, the Founder—but there are also a squad of friendly individuals behind them too. Namely, Jack, Jake, Will and Jevan, who will lift and move, often using specialist equipment, to ensure that customers receive a stress-free moving day. Uniquely, they also have a team of packing ladies, who will carefully wrap your possessions ready for moving day. Adam comments, “Every move has a story and often it’s quite an emotional experience, which is why we try to be there as caring individuals, as much as an actual removals team. When we pack and move someone belongings, we take great care with each and every item because we understand that these are much more than just furniture and accessories—they’re memories”. What is the Wemove process? Every potential move starts with an initial phone conversation, or email, with Adam or Helen, after which Adam will make a house call to properly assess—to the nth cubic foot—exactly what is being moved. This is also an ideal opportunity to see if their customers need any further assistance,

such as dismantling & reassembling furniture like beds and wardrobes. Using a tailor-made software system Adam will calculate how many vans, packing and labour is needed to get the job done to the highest standard, and produce a transparent quote that reflects exactly that, complete with any specific notes for the customer or needto-know details for the removals team. Come move day, the team will arrive in the morning and carefully load your possessions into the van, using special covers, protectors and plenty of cushioning, to ensure a safe, breakage-free journey. They will have the van meticulously packed by their promised time, but fear not; should your keys be delayed or unexpected event occur, they won’t charge any kind of late fees—they’re there for you, as long as it takes…but a cheeky compensational brew won’t go a miss! MOVE DAY PROMISE For most companies, their mission statement is drafted long before the business is actually up and running, and sure enough Wemove has their own too, but this, their “Move Day Promise”, is something else. This declaration was born out of three years trading—and

moreover learning—at a point where the company had already helped over 500 customers move homes, and it sums up Wemove’s and all of it’s team’s aptitude for each and every move:

“On your moving day we promise you a team of smartly dressed, well-trained removalists will arrive at your home. They will not cause damage, bring dirt into your property or be lacking the necessary equipment, skills or support. They will be well mannered and efficient. In a world in which we routinely expect problems with service, we are committed to making your day stress-free.”

OUTDOOR LIVING

THE BEST OF BRITISH A celebrating of heritage horticulture From the lustrous green lawns and proud native trees, to the bright cheerful blooms and landscaped hedgerows, the Great British garden is a very unique and beautiful thing, unlike any other in the world. As we slowly creep—emphasis on the slowly–into our summer season, it’s high time we start pulling out our green fingers and getting our gardens in shape for the eagerly anticipated warm weather that is (we hope) to come. With this in mind, we have put together a little guide, inspired by the impending Chelsea Flower Show and the majesty of the British garden, to show you how you too can create your own little outdoor haven at home.

1 

SMELL THE ROSES One of the first things you probably think of when ‘British garden’ comes to mind is that iconic image of bushelling hedges, full of blushing pink roses. Roses are so synonymous with British culture having played a huge role as a symbol of love, war, hope and peace, for important leaders, poets and artists alike. Moreover, their curvaceous form and soft-totouch petals remind us of the organic romanticism of nature and the simpler pleasures of life. Finally, roses emit a natural floral perfume that will add another element of sensory enjoyment to your land. In short, plant roses by the masses to give your yard a feminine, and fragrant ambience.

3 

HEDGING Using hedges where you want to create a definitive walkway is a great way to create a dynamic space, without the abruptness of a physical fence or wall. It’s also a clever way of creating little hidden alcoves for that added element of mystery–think, ‘The Secret Garden’.

4 

HERBS AND EDIBLES There’s something charming about the idea of picking something fresh to eat from your own garden. Depending on your willingness or means to manage the upkeep, you can plant all sorts of vivacious vegetation to add interest and beautiful aromas to your space. Lavender, Mint, Rosemary and Thyme are among a few of our favourite options, not to mention berries and low maintenance vegetables for those who wish to actively peruse more sustainable living.

LANDSCAPING Whilst it may seem quaint and organically put together a proper English garden is actually incredibly well planned, and artfully crafted, which is why it’s worth putting some thought in before getting too handy with the shovel. The perfect formula is a balance of clean lines, varying heights and full flowerbeds. It’s really a case of theatre—low and attractive points of interest in one spot and soaring high shrubberies in another.

5 

CREATE A NOOK Summer evenings spent lolling in the garden after long days are truly magical, even more so from the comfort of a cozy outdoor nook. Create a quaint hidey-hole with shade-providing trees, creeping plants and full wild flowerbeds; with a scattered stone floor and an antiquated metal table and chair set to complete the look. You might want to consider some atmospheric lighting in the form of fairy lights or lanterns to really amplify the mood and make use of the space as the sun goes down. Words by Charlotte Williams

TRAVEL

5 GENTLE CYCLING ROUTES YOU CAN ENJOY Seeing as it’s the 200th anniversary of the bicycle, it would almost be rude not to explore on two wheels this summer... When Baron Karl Freiherr von Drais invented the bicycle 200 years ago albeit one without pedals that was really more of a running machine - the German inventor probably had little idea he was (quite literally) starting a revolution. Since then, travelling by two wheels has become a popular leisure activity - and some people even do it for a holiday. Fortunately, not every cycling trip requires super-human levels of fitness and several pairs of race-ready Lycra shorts. Try these tours if you want to enjoy the ride without feeling like you’re taking part in the Tour de France. RIGHT: A couple cycling in the countryside (Picture credit: PA Photo/Thinkstock) BELOW: Avinyonet del Penedès, Catalonia, Spain (Picture credit: PA Photo/Catalan Tourist Board)

1 

DRINK AND DRIVE? YOU CAN ON A BIKE... Where: Penedes, Catalonia, Spain. With its rich red soil, long hours of sunshine and rolling vineyards, Penedes, an hour’s drive south-west of Barcelona, is one of Europe’s most diverse and exciting wine regions. Inntravel offer a six-night selfguided Cava Country tour, visiting famous wineries such as Condoniu and Freixenet, along with smaller family-run outfits, where bottles are still painstakingly turned by hand. The holiday ends in Sant Sandurni d’Anoia, where the first bottle of Cava was produced in 1872. Sweat rating: Expect to do between 20 and 25km per day. Cost: From £795, including halfboard accommodation, luggage transportation between hotels, route notes, maps and bike. E-bikes are also available at an extra cost. Flights extra. Travel April 15 to October 31. www.inntravel.co.uk

2 

PEDAL THROUGH SUPERB SCENERY Where: Inner Hebrides, Scotland. Cycle along twisted ribbons of quiet island roads, soaking up the atmosphere of wild, dramatic landscapes. Wilderness Scotland offer a seven-day guided Road Cycling - Skye & The Inner Hebrides tour from the Isle of Mull, through the Ardnamurchan Peninsula and on to the Isle of Skye. Highlights include exploring the ancient abbey on the Isle of Iona, dining on superb seafood in Tobermory, stopping off at a local smokehouse to stock up on fish, meats and cheeses for a picnic lunch, and a tour of Talisker whisky distillery. Sweat rating: The average distance cycled each day is 40km.

96

Cost: From £1,595pp (two sharing), including professional guiding, bike, accommodation and some meals. There is also vehicle transport


TRAVEL

Sweat rating: You’re looking at 45km per day in the saddle. Cost: From £1,209pp, including accommodation, bike, all breakfasts and four evening meals. Luggage transfers between hotels are included, so you only need to carry your daily essentials with you when cycling. Flights extra. Departs every two days until October 14, 2017. www. headwater.com

5 

A FREE-WHEELIN’ HOLIDAY CAN BE JUST THAT (ALMOST) Where: The Isle of Wight. Measuring 13 miles by 25 miles, the Isle of Wight is the perfect size for exploring by bike. It also has a cycling-friendly mild climate and largely unspoilt countryside - nearly half of the island is designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It’s also one of the few places in England where you can still see a red squirrel or Glanville Fritillary butterfly, so the Red Squirrel Route is great for wildlife lovers. The ride starts at Cowes in the north of the island and finishes at Sandown in the east, and includes two long sections of a former railway path. Sweat rating: This can just be a one day trip - it’s 16 miles one way. Cost: Hire bikes from Isle Cycle Hire (islecycle.co.uk), Yarmout, from £15 per day. By Georgia Humphreys, Press Association

BELOW: cycling in Scotland (Picture credit: PA Photo/Catalan Tourist Board)

throughout, including ride support and luggage transfers. Flights or trains extra. Spaces available for set departures from May to August 2018. www.wildernessscotland.com

3 

GET STUCK IN TRAFFIC WITH GIRAFFES Where: Arusha, Tanzania. Thought African wildlife could only be viewed from a 4WD? Well, now you can safari straight from the saddle. Intrepid offer a new 13-day escorted Cycle Tanzania trip, mixing traditional game viewing with opportunities to bike through remote African plains where few tourists go. There’s the lure of seeing big cats and black rhino in the Serengeti National Park and Ngorongoro Crater (from the safety of a vehicle), and even a chance to walk through villages and learn about local Maasai culture. Sweat rating: Terrain can be hilly and the climate is warm, so you’ll need to be relatively fit!

Cost: From £2,145pp and includes accommodation, most meals, bike, support vehicle and activities, such as entry to the national park, game drives and Maasai village visit. Set departures throughout the year. International flights extra. www.intrepidtravel.com

4 

RIDE THROUGH THE PAGES OF A FAIRY-TALE Where: Bavaria, Germany. Experience archetypal Germany on this eight-night self-guided Headwater Bavarian Castles and Rivers trip, visiting hilltop fairy-tale castles and lively towns filled with traditional breweries. The region is backed by the German Jura Mountains and the route is dissected by a network of beautiful rivers - look out for Pfraundorfer See, a popular local swimming spot where you can cool off. The final stretch takes you from the charming town of Parsberg along the Schwarze Laber river, to architectural beauty Regensburg.

PRIMOVE Onwards and Upwards

Primove celebrated one year of selling, letting and managing properties all over Bournemouth and Poole in February 2018, and the business is going from strength to strength. Having recently been instructed as sole agency on a wonderful new block in the heart of Bournemouth, the business is now taking on new and exciting commercial ventures on top of their healthy residential portfolio. Despite this rapid development, Primove continue to stand by their promise of providing clients with affordable properties and fair rental terms. IMPECCABLE SERVICE MD Mohit Kochar (Moe) says, “We are focused on providing an impeccable service, with our ethos of offering our clients fair and affordable fees. I’m so grateful to my wonderful clients, who have been so very supportive.

Our strong referral network has resulted in our rapidly growing portfolio, from which we have launched our commercial, serviced accommodation and holiday lettings department, which are also flourishing fast. We specialise in sourcing off-book properties for our clients, and due to our extensive local connections, we have under-marketvalue and repossession properties available. We would urge all investors to register with Primove.” Due to the growth of the business Moe appointed Aimee Ramage as Sales and Lettings Director last year.

NEW TEAM, NEW OFFICE Primove has advanced massively since Aimee’s appointment and relocation to new offices in Alder Hills. Their services go above and beyond client’s expectations, and with full management from just £50pcm they offer excellent value for money. Aimee says, “Our clients trust us, and that’s hugely important. All good relationships are built on trust, loyalty and effective communication. That’s why our clients frequently recommend us to manage their properties.” Primove’s new offices are perfectly located to look after their portfolio and support their clients. With an expansive boardroom and plenty of parking, clients love the new offices

Over the past 20 years Moe has built strong connections with associates in India and Dubai, to enable another branch of the Primove tree.

Our holiday lettings department is already thriving, and the concierge department has proved extremely popular. Our concierge facility offers bespoke services for our clients. From stunning chauffeur driven cars to collect you from the airport and personal chefs who will cook you a gorgeous meal during your stay, to tutoring for your

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

I THINK I NEED A DEGREE OR A HOLIDAY! Each week I seem to be travelling up to London or Winchester for a training day on industry regulations. I remember when I first got involved in the lettings Industry in 1992, my goodness, life was so simple. Firstly, the day was not interrupted by emails, so I definitely got a lot more work done! We manually contacted landlords, work and wrote to banks for references on behalf of the tenants, we bought an Oyez Tenancy Agreement and manually filled in the blanks. That was pretty much it, other than an inventory, which was nowhere near the detailed inventories we prepare now. Fast forward to 2018 and we are in a whole different world. Gas Safety Certificates, Energy performance Certificates, Help to Rent Guides, Prescribed information, deposit certificates, 9-page tenancy agreements, addendums, white goods clauses, block rules, immigration checks, right to rent checks, to name a few. I am fully behind the majority of the additional regulations, there are rogue landlords and agents that should not be working within the industry, but a day late in protecting a deposit leaves the landlord paying out 3 times the deposit plus the original deposit to give to the tenant. Prescribed information must be signed. Gas Safety’s not being given at the correct time, means notices to end a tenancy is not recognised in court, plus a criminal record and fines and possibly jail terms. Giving the wrong notice to the tenant will now been thrown out in court. Energy Performance certificates not in place when advertising leads to £200 fines. I had a landlord come in the other day whose mother looked after his small portfolio, he was asking for help in giving notice to the tenant. When I asked for the paperwork to check all was in order, there was errors, the landlord was not only open to 3 x the deposit to pay the tenant, but the Gas Safety had not been given at the beginning of the tenancy and the How to Rent Guide had not been issued. He was unaware of the smoke alarm on each floor ruling and the immigration checks. As a letting agent, we work so hard to ensure all regulations are adhered to and that each and every landlord is fully compliant. This particular landlord was open to a fine because he wanted to save money on letting agent fees, but why? The fine will end up being far more that if he had let an agent manage it in the first place, which very often, lets face it is less than a night out monthly payment to manage a property 24/7, 52 weeks, 365 days a year.

LANDLORDS! DO YOU SELF-MANAGE YOUR RENTAL PROPERTY?

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 an evening presentation in Christchurch from 18.30 – 20.30 aimed at self-managing landlords. There will be an interesting and thought provoking presentation by leading property legal expert David d’Orton-Gibson. GENERAL DATA PROTECTION REGULATIONS (GDPR)

IN ADDITION TO GDPR, ON THIS EVENING WE WILL ALSO DISCUSS • 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!

• GDPR WILL affect everything that you do and you WILL have to change your day-to-day processes to comply.

• New Gas legislation for landlords.

• Do you know when you can lawfully give the tenant’s details to a contractor?

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.

• What happens if you do not back up data? • Can you afford a 20 million Euro penalty? • What is a privacy notice? Do you have one? What must it now state?

HOME IMPROVEMENTS

5 TIPS FOR SELF BUILDERS If you dream of building your own home, you first need to find a plot of land to build it on and then an architect to design it

1 

Buying a plot of land with detailed planning permission for a house (or houses) is a safe bet, but, of course, it may not be the house you want to build. Unless the plans can be changed, you may prefer to take a risk on a plot without planning permission, or with outline planning permission. The latter grants permission on the principle that the land can be developed, while detailed planning permission specifies the design of the building.

consider the value of the land (or rather its value to you) and how you can get services and vehicles to it. Poor access will make the project harder and more expensive, and could even stop it getting off the ground.

4 

As well as a plot, a good architect is essential. Not only will they translate your vision into reality, they should also enhance it with ideas of their own, coming up with things you hadn’t thought of and solving problems. A good architect will also help you obtain planning permission, can manage the build and the pre-build process, and can source and manage the various professionals and contractors needed.

2 

You can search for land on property websites like www. zoopla.co.uk and www. rightmove.co.uk, where it’s for sale through estate agents. Land agents, who specialise in selling land, and auction houses are often a better bet, as are specialist plot websites, such as PlotSearch at www.buildstore. co.uk. Local newspapers and property magazines may contain ads for land for sale, or you could place a ‘land wanted’ ad. You could even drive around your search area, looking for land that’s for sale or may be suitable as a building plot.

3  120

Don’t discount existing buildings knocking something down and starting again is one way to get a great plot. As well as the location and chances of obtaining planning permission,

5 

One of the good things about a self-build is that it’s easy to make your home environmentally friendly because you’re starting from scratch. As well as obvious things like insulating as much as possible, self-builders can usually incorporate big eco home improvements, such as solar panels, heat pumps, and grey-water recycling systems (where some of your home’s waste water is cleaned and reused) in a more cost-effective way than homeowners who have to retrofit them. Combine measures like these with environmentally friendly building materials and you can create an extremely green self-build. Ask your architect about this at a very early stage so it can be incorporated into the design.

HOW TO NAIL THE FOLIAGE TREND IN EACH ROOM OF YOUR HOUSE Go green at home with our guide to embracing houseplants Houseplants are back in vogue. Once a popular feature in Sixties and Seventies homes, they fell out of favour in the minimalist Nineties, but now going green indoors is all the rage again. “We’ve observed the creeping return of greenery in the way some of the chicest folk around decorate their homes today,” says Kara O’Reilly, coauthor with Ian Drummond of At Home With Plants . “Cool interiors are upping the variety of plant pots in their ranges, and there’s a revival of everything from terrariums to hanging planters as decorative elements.” RIGHT: Three containers of palms make an eyecatching display and blur the boundary between the indoors and outdoors. (from left) Kentia palm; Washington palm; Kentia palm and Chinese Windmill palm

“One of the most amazing things about houseplants is that you enjoy them all year round, and there’s nothing more satisfying to the soul than nurturing a living thing,” adds Kara. “With a little know-how, even the least green fingered among us can grow an indoor plant. But be warned - once you start, the look will grow on you!”

LIVING ROOM “Houseplants can have enormous impact in a living room because there are so many areas to display them,” says Kara. “Follow the fashion for hanging planters - in macrame, metal or marble - and attach them to the

LEFT & ABOVE: A collection of plants, including begonias, echevaria and white striped Cretan brake arranged on a mantel

ceiling to create a ‘green screen’. Or invest in a set of open shelves, fill with potted plants to make a room divider. Quirky containers for foliage such as vintage hampers - will inject personality into a setting” How to display: Surfaces from mantels to shelves, windowsills and side tables are perfect homes for plants. If you have the space, go to town with a group of different sized, floor-standing architectural palms to create a focal point.

127


INTERIORS

What to pick: Palms, weeping figs or finger trees are all conversation pieces. Choose plants in foliage colours to complement your ornaments or colour scheme, such as trailing plants, English ivy, chain cactus; or flowering plants such as flamingo flower, pink quill or vanda orchids.

KITCHEN “The kitchen’s the heart of the home, so why not show yours a little love with some creative planting?” says Kara. “Herbs are an obvious choice, as they’re attractive, an invaluable cooking ingredient and their fragrance can mask odours.” How to display: Try placing a large container of mixed herbs on a table, or plant individual varieties of herbs in matching pots and line them up along a shelf, a windowsill, or a work surface. What to pick: Chives, coriander, mint, basil. They prefer a light, bright position such as a sunny windowsill and regular water and occasional misting. Ideally, buy plants from a garden centre as they’ll last longer. Asplenium ferns, echeveria succulents and moth orchids also thrive in kitchens with lots of light. RIGHT: Create your own indoor kitchen garden with a selection of edible plants such as kumquat; calamondin orange; mixed herbs and chilli pepper BELOW: Pots of lavender are a simple way to introduce some soothing scent and seasonal colour into your home

128


INTERIORS

BATHROOM “Most bathrooms tend to fall into one of two camps: light and humid, or dark and humid. While light levels are obviously a key consideration when choosing plants for any space, with a bathroom you need to select humidity-loving plants above all,” advises Kara. How to display: Arrange plants so they’re within your sight line when taking a soak in the tub or a shower. In a small space, choose miniature varieties and dot them amongst your lotions and potions. What to pick: Cacti and most succulents are an absolute no-no. Orchids, ferns, aloes and palms all like humidity and can also tolerate fluctuations in temperature. Trailing plants work well, including spider plants; heart-leaf philodendron and chestnut vine. Foliage plants are a better choice for a dark bathroom as flowering plants generally need higher levels of light. RIGHT: A variety of humidity loving plants in a spacious bathroom (from left) Tradescantia (wandering Jew); English ivy; sword fern; umbrella tree; and variegated Cupid peperomia BELOW: FA line up of tiny, trailing Hedera helix (English ivy) hanging down from pots grouped on the bed head, turns a plain bedside shelf into a striking design statement

BEDROOM “Plants don’t only look good in bedrooms - but they can also help us feel calm and act as natural air conditioners, gently raising the humidity levels and improving air quality,” says Kara. How to display: A plant on a bedside table will upgrade its look and is a welcoming touch for a guest. Consider an indoor tree by a bed, or hanging planters to bring interest to a dull corner. What to pick: Plants that cope with slightly lower temperatures and potentially lower light levels. Seek out varieties which are proven toxic filters, such as heartleaf philodendron and peace lily. Improve air quality by choosing plants that release oxygen at night, such as orchids, Barbados aloe and mother-in-law’s tongue; while lavender (known as a sleep inducer) could scent the air.

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

Find the answers to your questions at Big Green Wheels.

These features are usually in the form of dropped or raised areas and

www.thebiggreenevent.co.uk/events

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.

House Has A New Home...

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.

GO ALFRESCO

Creating a luxurious outdoor dining space There’s something magical about those gorgeous golden dusks spent lolling in the garden. The residual aroma of a recently doused barbeque, ice-cold brews, warm beams of sun of the skin, and a general feeling of tropical bliss. With all this (hopefully) coming our way in the pending months, we have put together a little guide for creating the perfect, luxurious outdoor dining space—and just in time for sundowners!

THE ALMIGHTY TABLE The table is a symbol of coming together and being in the moment, away from the lure of a seat in front of the TV or tablet, so it makes sense to do your research in this department. Get a table that fits your day-to-day lifestyle, but can equally be used for summer soirees and special occasions with family and friends. The style you choose will be personal to you, but personally, I love the look of a long rectangular banquet table for all the family to gather around, it also gives you plenty of space for plenty of food—priorities. If your motely crew is smaller, or your space is limited then go with

a circular table, so that you don’t compromise on as much space and everyone can merrily chat away without leaning across one another. TOP TIP: Consider where you place your dining set. Spend a bit of time in your garden mapping out the best sunspots, and more specifically where has the most sun come dusk.

SITTING IN STYLE

SURROUNDING FOLIAGE

Comfort and style should be one and the same with your outdoor seating— after all, you’re trying to extend the use of your garden, as the days grow longer. Whichever base you decide to go for (metal, wood, rattan…) be sure each stool has its very own seat cover or cushion; your guests (and yourself) will thank you for it and it will make that alfresco happy hour that bit more sublime.

How and what you plant has more of an impact than you might think. For example, if you want to create a beautiful shaded hideout, you might consider planting some trees or latching some climbing wisteria onto a trellis or lanai—a great alternative to a physical wall or manmade shelter.

You might also want to think about what kind of tone you want to set, esthetically and physically. Consider all of the little details; which aromas do you want to generate? What colour scheme do you want to create? How much upkeep are you able/willing to put in? All of this, plus your own style preferences, will make your choices that bit clearer and will hopefully form a finished idea. If in doubt, ask your local garden centre for some more specific advice.


OUTDOOR LIVING

FINISHING TOUCHES If you truly want to win the title of “host with the most” then you’ve got to go the extra mile for bonus brownie points. This ultimately means foreplanning the British weather elements, and your guest’s consequent wellbeing. With this in mind, get your hands on some theme-coordinated blankets and casually drape them over a few of the chairs—your guests will love you for it as the night draws in and the heat (what little we have) dissipates. You might even consider investing in a fire pit; the latest must-have garden accessory. They come in a range of shapes, styles and sizes and make a gorgeous focal point, as well as its given ability to provide heat.

TOP TABLEWARE For that extra WOW-factor you’ve got to accessorise your table. First off, get your hands on a new set of crockery— no plastic plates here. A timeless option is pure white china, but for a more contemporary twist opt for a more organic finish and misshapen forms with plenty of character, in a range of colours. Match this, with mismatching modern glassware and some additional ceramic, or metallic serving gear and you’ll have a gorgeous host of tableware on your hands.

MOOD LIGHTING When it comes to mood lighting, there’s nothing more elegant than oversized lanterns with flickering pillar candles. Scatter them in juxtaposition around your outdoor dining space for a dreamy atmosphere when the sun goes down. If you want a slightly less moody and arguably simpler option, then go for rows of festoon lights—just make sure they are weatherproof!

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

NEW AUDI A6 AVANT

142

Available for order this summer,the new Audi A6 Avant, which has sharper and more muscular styling. Prices have not yet been announced. There are four and sixcylinder TDI and TFSI engines supported by Audi mild hybrid technology based around a belt alternator starter which recovers energy during braking that is harvested by a separate lithium-ion battery and also enables engineoff coasting at speeds of between 34mph and 99mph to conserve fuel. An enhanced start-stop function that is active from just over 13mph is also standard. All versions will be equipped with either sevenspeed S tronic twin-clutch or eight-speed tiptronic automatic transmissions, and quattro all-wheel-drive will be a standard or optional feature depending on model. The sport differential that actively distributes power between the rear wheels when cornering at speed will also be available. Despite the even more rakish lines, the new A6 Avant matches the outgoing car for luggage capacity. It offers a loading width of 1,050 millimetres and a capacity of 565 litres in five-seat mode, increasing to 1,680 litres with the standard 40:20:40 backrests folded down. The tailgate and the luggage compartment cover open electrically as standard, and an optional sensor is available for the tailgate which enables it to be opened using a simple movement of the foot.

ROAD TEST: SEAT IBIZA XCELLENCE SEAT’s Ibiza supermini has attracted a loyal following in recent years and the latest version, lower, wider and with a longer wheelbase and sharper styling, is certain to boost sales of this increasingly cool and sporty marque, writes NICK FLETCHER. Running on a new lightweight platform also shared with some of its VW-Audi stablemates, Ibiza now has more of a grown-up feel, is more spacious, better equipped and with charismatic styling which makes rivals look rather dull. Ibiza prices start at £13,665 and there are several trim levels including a tasty and more sporty FR version. Available only in 5-door form, Ibiza comes with petrol and diesel options, with the 1.0 litre 3-cylinder 94 hp petrol unit a popular choice. This engine - the one fitted in my Xcellence flagship test model has a 0-60 mph time of 10.6 seconds, top speed of 113 mph and remarkably good fuel economy of 60.1 mpg combined. Emissions are low at 106 g/km. The Xcellence model, priced at £17,310, has plenty of kit including keyless entry and start, four different driving

modes, cruise control, parking sensors and rear view camera, touchscreen infotainment, sat-nav with voice recognition, DAB radio and connectivity including Mirror Link, Apple Car Play and Android Auto, plus a wireless phone-charger. On the move, Ibiza handles exceptionally well, with minimal body roll and lots of grip. Ride quality is slightly firm but still comfortable. The 1.0 litre turbo-petrol engine is responsive and at speed, pleasingly quiet for a 3-cylinder unit. Occupant space in the Ibiza is very good, accommodating four adults with ease and five at a squeeze. The box-shaped boot holds a substantial 355 litres, boosted by folding rear seats which sadly do not fold flat, leaving an awkward step – my only negative comment on this attractive family hatchback. This is the fifth generation of the Ibiza, with 5.4 million sold in over 30 years and sales currently at record levels in the UK and across Europe. That upward trend is set to continue as the latest Ibiza has outstanding credentials in a hotly-contested supermini sector.

ALL-NEW FORD FOCUS Ford has unveiled its all-new Focus, on sale for September delivery, starting with Style (at £17,930), the range progresses through Zetec (£19,300), ST-Line (£21,570), ST-Line X (£24,050), Titanium (£21,550), Titanium X (£22,820) and Vignale (£25,450). Focus Style comes as standard with 16in alloy wheels, air conditioning, DAB digital radio with Bluetooth and Emergency Assist, electronic parking brake, autonomous emergency braking, tyre pressure monitoring, Hill Start Assist and LaneKeeping Aid. Zetec models add highlights such as Ford’s acclaimed SYNC3 DAB Radio with a 6.5in touchscreen and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto functionality, cruise control with speed limiter, and QuickClear heated windscreen. Titanium models bring additional features including front and rear parking sensors, heated front seats, dual-zone climate control, keyless entry and start, a larger eight-inch colour touchscreen, satellite navigation and FordPass Connect wireless connectivity. The Titanium X boosts the luxury further with partial leather trim, a power-adjustable driver’s seat, privacy glass and 17in alloy wheels.

For sporty drivers, the ST-Line offers unique body styling, including unique upper and lower grille, rear spoiler and polished twin tailpipes. Inside are a flat-bottomed steering wheel, aluminium gearknob, alloy finish pedals and red stitching. The ST-Line X adds 18in alloy wheels, red brake calipers and many of the luxury features found on the Titanium X model. At the top of the all-new Focus range sits the luxurious Focus Vignale, featuring a unique front grille and body styling with 18in wheels, leather upholstery, head-up display, rear view camera, heated steering wheel and the 675-watt 10-speaker B&O Play Premium Audio System.

CITROËN SPECIAL EDITIONS

ROAD TEST: VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT ESTATE The choice of estate cars is not as plentiful as it once was, but there are still strong contenders in a sector which retains a loyal following, writes NICK FLETCHER. At the head of the list is the Volkswagen Passat Estate. Beautifully styled, robustly built and with a more upmarket and luxury feel than main rivals, the Passat will tick all the boxes of those seeking space, day-to-day practicality and dependability. One of VW’s best-selling and award-winning models, the Passat estate is priced from £23,630. Lighter and more spacious than previous versions, the latest Passat estate is a refined cruiser and load-lugger which can also be neat and nimble in urban use. There are petrol and diesel options and my test model was a 2.0 litre 148 hp diesel in Business SE trim. Priced at £30,115, it was fitted with smooth-shifting 7-speed auto transmission. Standard kit is extensive. Among the highlights: pre- and post-crash safety features, keyless start, front and rear parking sensors, 3-zone air-con, adaptive cruise control, auto lights and wipers, DAB radio/CD, sat-nav, internet access and

smart-phone connectivity, alloy wheels, roof rails and variable boot floor. Boot space is a substantial 650 litres, expandable to a massive £1,780 litres with rear seats folded. Wide doors give access easy and deep door bins, large glovebox and centre console storage make it very family-friendly. On the road, the Passat is a delight - quiet, agile, composed, very comfortable and with precise steering and well-balanced suspension inducing a feeling of absolute driver control and assurance. Top speed is 135 mph, 0-60 mph time a nippy 8.9 seconds, fuel figure 64.2 mpg combined, and emissions just 114 g/km. The car looks more elegant and classy than most estates thanks to its understated and rather cool design both in the cabin and outside. Passat rivals include estate versions of its stable-mate Skoda Superb, Ford Mondeo and BMW 3 Series but in my view, none match the all-round Passat package which combines space and versatility with visual cachet and outstanding driving characteristics. It is about as near-perfect an estate car as you can find.

Citroen has updated its C1, adding new technological equipment, improved overall comfort and new engines. And two new special editions are being introduced, C1 ELLE and C1 Urban Ride, both available to order from May. Citroën C1 ELLE offers exclusive two-tone body colour and tinted side and rear windows. Based on the top trim level (Flair), comes with reversing camera, DAB digital radio / MP3 audio system with steering-wheel mounted controls, Bluetooth hands-free kit and USB, plus automatic air conditioning and automatic headlights. Citroën C1 is also connected featuring a 7-inch touchscreen tablet and compatible with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and MirrorLink. Available as a 5-door hatchback, C1 ELLE uses a 72 hp petrol engine with a manual gearbox, and is priced at £12,705. Citroën C1 ‘Urban Ride’ offers an adventurous look and SUV-inspired styling. Also based on the top level Flair trim and with the same engine and gearbox, it costs £12,225.

SSANGYONG MUSSO PICK-UP The new SsangYong Musso 4x4 pick-up arrives in UK showrooms this summer, with a five-year unlimited mileage warranty. Prices have not yet been announced. Musso (it means rhinocerous in Korean) features additional equipment, a new interior and revised styling. Standard kit includes DAB radio and Bluetooth connectivity feature across the range, while all but the entry level model feature a stateof-the-art infotainment system that includes an 8-inch screen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and Wi-fi mirroring. It has body-on-frame construction, a Euro-pallet sized load deck, 1 tonne payload and 3.5 tonne towing capability. Other features include electric windows, central locking, airconditioning with fine dust filters and a 12V/120W power outlet in the cargo deck area. The new Musso powertrain uses a 2.2 litre 180 hp turbo diesel engine with either 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic transmission. It features part-time 4x4 with power delivered permanently to the rear wheels, and front wheel drive dialed in electronically as required, with high and low ratios available as on and off-road conditions demand.

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

BUZZWORD; ACID The word “acid” conjures up images of bubbling test tubes and thoughts of scary chemical burns. But when used at the right concentrations, acids are actually some of the most beneficial ingredients available in skin care. They’re the miracle tools used to fight acne, wrinkles, age spots, scarring, and uneven skin tone. But with so many acids on the market, it can seem overwhelming to remember which to use — and for what — and which products to buy. Before all that, you have to know where to start.

LACTIC ACID The skin smoother. Cleopatra was said to take daily milk baths and now we know why! Lactic acid derived from sour milk breaks down the glue that keeps dead skin cells on the skins surface that can make it feel rough. HYLALURONIC ACID My hydration hero! Skin feeling dry and dehydrated? Hyaluronic Acid is the ingredient you must be using! One molecule of this miracle acid can

hold 1000 times its weight in moisture as well as drawing moisture in from the air to quench your skin. This product will give you a plumper more dewy complexion. CITRIC ACID The base brightener! If your skin is lacklustre then choose treatments and products that are rich in natural citric acid. This will help fight hyperpigmentation and dark spots by encouraging cell turnover whilst giving your skin an enviable glow.

So here’s my go-to guide to select the right Acid for you:

GLYCOLIC ACID AKA…. The fine line fighter! This gentle yet effective acid will help sluff off dead skin cells and boost collagen production.

144

Medik8’s Age Peel is an effective formulation of acids to reduce fine lines and wrinkles and fade skin imperfections revealing a more glowing and youthful complexion. Containing Salicylic acid and L-Mandelic Acid (produces the same results as glycolic acid without the irritation and downtime caused by a glycolic peel). £49 at Chic. THE PRODUCT FOR YOU... Medik8’s Hydrate B5 Serum is a lightweight and easily-absorbed hydrating gel-serum delivers skinsoftening Vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid) and super moisture-enhancing Hyaluronic Acid to produce rapid and significant improvements in the general condition and feel of the skin. Exhibits excellent water-retaining properties to quench your skin and provides superior skin hydration. Can be used day and/ or night (or whenever you want a hydration boost) to soften and smooth the skin or for optimal renewal and protection of the skin. RRP £40.

SALICYLIC ACID I like to call this the spot zapper! Whether it’s a breakout caused by the time of the month or maybe you felt like you took out shares in Cadbury’s this Easter, Salicylic acid will help to unblock pores and reduce redness and inflammation.

11 EXERCISES TO...

HELP AVOID A JOGGING INJURY Want to avoid injury while pounding the pavements? Sports therapist Jamie Webb goes through some exercises that’ll help keep those running pains at bay It’s one of the cheapest and quickest ways to get your heart pumping and work up a sweat. All you need to do is pull on your trainers and leggings and head outdoors - but running can also be a common cause of injuries. Often, these are a result of overuse, going from hero to zero instead of building up slowly, ill-fitting footwear, and ignoring aches and niggles that indicate you probably need a rest (or to see a physio). But there are lots of things you can do to avoid running your way to an injury. Sports therapist Jamie Webb shares a series of exercises and stretches designed to help runners avoid injury.

1 

LUMBAR EXTENSION This stretches the hip flexors and the muscles that affect their function. This will help make your

quads feel less heavy when you’re running, and is good for knee issues. Simply arch backwards over a Swiss ball (or if you don’t have one, use the back of the sofa or edge of a bed) and let the arms and legs hang in a relaxed fashion. You should feel a stretch through your stomach. You may get a sensation in your back also. So long as this is not painful, carry on. Hold for a minimum of one minute.

2 

SINGLE LEG RAISE Lay on your back with one leg straight and one leg bent. Use your core muscles to push the arch of your back flat against the floor. Place a hand under the side of the back to make sure there is constant downwards pressure. While maintaining the downward pressure, lift one heel about six inches off the floor. Hold for 30 seconds and then put it back to the floor. If you can, maintain the same pressure on your hand under your back and repeat on the other side. Repeat three times on each side.

3 

HALF MOON When the quads are doing too much work, your obliques on the same side will tighten. To avoid this, stand upright with your hands above your head. From this position, bend over to the side, making a half moon shape. You may feel the stretch anywhere along the outside of your body. Hold each stretch for a minute on each side.

4 

QUAD STRETCH WITH PELVIC TILT Pull your foot up behind your bum until you start to feel a stretch in the quads. From there, push the pelvis up and out, like a pelvic thrust, and this should increase the stretch through the quadriceps and in the hip region. Great for tight quads and knee pain.

5  146

QUAD EXTENSION This is a progression from the last exercise. Some people are more flexible than others, so the previous stretch may not have quite hit the spot. This not only stretches the quads but also the muscles that work with the quads to affect their efficiency. Start by sitting on your heels on the floor. Reach your hands out behind you to open up your pelvis and place your hands flat on the floor


HEALTH & BEAUTY

To start, lift the leg on a table and rotate the foot inwards completely so your inside ankle bone is on the table. Now drop down by bending the leg you are standing on to increase the stretch.

11 

behind you. If you need to increase the stretch, push the pelvis upwards until the stomach is flat.

6 

HAMSTRING STRETCH Start by placing the foot on something about table height; flexible people will need something higher, the inflexible will need something lower. When the foot is up on the table in front of you, lean forwards with your upper body to bring the stretch on. Come back to upright. This time rotate the foot outwards and then lean in again. You will feel the stretch in a slightly different place; it may be tighter, it may be looser. Come back to upright. Then rotate the foot inwards and repeat. Find out which stretch hits the spot best for you and focus on that one.

7 

NECK STRETCH Some runners run with too much tension, which can result in a tight neck and shoulders, and can affect your hamstring length and glute strength. Simply stand and bow your head and apply downwards pressure with your hand. You should feel a stretch at the back of your neck. You may even feel the stretch spreading lower down your back. Hold for about a minute and repeat a couple of times.

sewing as a tool to relax say it helps lower their stress levels, while those who don’t sew are almost twice as likely to feel stressed than their needle-and-thread-loving peers. What’s the secret?

GLUTES STRETCH Sit on the floor with one leg out straight in front of you and bring your opposite foot across your thigh just above the knee and put the foot down flat. From here, hug the raised knee that is up into the opposite shoulder. You should feel a stretch in your glutes. If you wish to increase the stretch rotate your torso to the same side you are stretching.

More than three-quarters (79%) of those polled cited the sense of achievement that comes from finishing a project as a key calming component; 74% said having the opportunity to focus on one thing and forget about day-to-day issues was a true relief; and 63% agreed working with their hands also played a part (www.sewingquarter.com).

8 

CALF STRETCHES The standard stretch is to lean against a wall and take your leg out behind. While keeping the heel down, lock your knee straight and this will stretch your calf. From this position, bring the foot slightly forward, turn the toes inwards slightly and bend at the knee.

9 

PERONEAL These are the muscles on the outside of your shin that help with balance. If you have flat feet, these will be tight. Support yourself against a wall. Roll your foot outwards slightly (i.e. hold the inside of your foot in the air), now push your knee forwards while keeping the weight on the outside of the foot. This should stretch around the outside of the ankle and into the muscles on the outside of your shin.

10 

ADDUCTOR STRETCH Good balance between the adductor group and the hip abductors (glutes) is key for pelvic, knee and ankle stability. It also has a profound effect on the femoral nerve (the nerve that gives sensation in the knee) and so is great for anyone with tight quads and also those with niggles in the knees.

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

LET’S TALK FAMILY

Not only are we one big family at Wassmuffin, but we also love training families and having children around. Mike and I both have children that can often be found at the gym and we understand how hard it is to train around children and with a busy lifestyle. We have kids classes 6 days a week in Thai Boxing, Thai Fitness, and Ju Jitsu, for children ages 4-10 years old. We now have a junior class too, ages 1015 on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, as the kids class became so popular we had to split them up. The classes have been known to increase confidence, teach discipline and respect, as well as keep them fit and strong. Some people seem to have the wrong opinion that this creates violence outside of the gym environment. In all my years of training I have never seen this happen with the kids we train. Actually it seems to have the opposite effect; as our children gain confidence they found out they have nothing to prove to others outside the gym and therefore avoid altercations and due to their newfound confidence others don’t seem to want to test them. I have witnessed time and time again how this has led to parents training with us. They have seen how

much their children love it and progress, and just how much fun they can have while training, so decide to try it themselves. Which is why we have a special membership deal for families, which is negotiable depending on how many family members will be training. We are always happy to allow children on the premises when parents or carers are on site, as long as they understand their safety is still there responsibility especially at busy class times. Children are also welcome when we teach our private classes, and have often been known to join in—It’s a great way to get fit together and have something in common. As I like to say, “the family that kick together stick together”! Ok so let’s talk about the science bit. Here’s a little bit of info as to whether it’s really harder to get back in shape after having kids. Apparently, evidence shows it isn’t physically hard toget back into shape after giving birth. And if you’re breastfeeding you can burn an extra 300-500 calories per day. Your estrogen levels are lower after giving birth so you naturally lose more weight. If you were in good shape before your pregnancy, and

maintained a pregnancy friendly fitness regime, your body is well prepared to get back into shape. However, it’s very important to remember that if you haven’t trained before pregnancy or had a fitness routine in place at all, it would be dangerous to do anything your body is not used to doing, suddenly while pregnant. This next part is for men and women. The main reason parents find it hard to get back into shape after children is that it’s not easy to make time for workouts, or to channel the energy needed for exercise. Not to mention that a severe lack of sleep can slow your metabolism. So here’s how we can help; come and see us. You can bring your beautiful little ones too, we understand— we like to call them gym babies! Come and have a great workout with like-minded people, in a fun relaxed environment. Let us take the thinking out of your workout, whilst Motivating you to work hard. Check out the timetable (below) and the membership deals at: www.fitterthanfit.co.uk

CANDICE BROWN...

THE BAKE OFF CHAMP DOES COMFORT FOOD PERFECTLY Winning Bake Off, the ultimate show for those who pride themselves on the quality of their lemon drizzle and the sturdiness of their pie crust, would, you’d think, prepare a person for automatic cookbook domination and a tasty TV career. However, 32-year-old former PE teacher Candice is still utterly gobsmacked. In fact, when she got the call confirming her book deal, she was wandering around Fortum & Mason, staring at the meat in the butcher’s section - and had to hang up to gaze, stunned, at the carcasses for a while longer, while the news sunk in. Three manic months of writing, cooking, developing (and very little sleep) later, and the result is Comfort, a collection of Candice’s triedand-tested home classics: “The sort of things you want to stick your face in, grab a spoon, dive straight in and worry about burning your mouth later”. Squidged between snaps of her pug Dennis, the recipes are huge, decadent and sometimes borrowed treats - think an enormous, bubbling shepherd’s pie, sausage rolls the size of bricks, and her beloved nan’s boiled fruit cake. “Everything has a story,” explains the London-born baker. “I’m so proud of it - it’s big flavours, it’s big pots.” Piecing all the recipes together was something of a challenge though, as Candice admits she’s “bloody awful at writing them down”. “Liam [my boyfriend] would always say to me, ‘Are you writing that down?’ And I’d go, ‘YES, YES!’, knowing full well I’m not writing anything down at all, because I do what I call a ‘guess-a-cake’ - I just whack everything in and hope for the best. But then, if it works really well I’ll be like, ‘Argh, what did I put in that?!’ And if it goes horribly wrong? “Don’t worry about it,” she says. “You either don’t tell anyone and start again, or you turn it into something else and say it was supposed to look like that - that’s how I get by a lot of the time.” Comfort: Delicious Bakes And Family Treats by Candice Brown, photography Ellis Parrinder, is published in hardback by Ebury Press.

Ingredients

Method

Olive oil 1tbsp (heaped) plain flour 800g lamb stewing steak (eg. neck), cut into 50p-sized pieces 1 large red onion, diced 1 red pepper, seeded and diced 3 small carrots, peeled and diced 2 celery sticks, diced 150g chestnut mushrooms, diced 100g chorizo, skinned and sliced Leaves from 1 small bunch fresh rosemary, thyme and sage, finely chopped 1 dried bay leaf 2tsp finely chopped garlic (jarred or fresh) 1 small fresh red chilli, finely chopped (remove the seeds if you don’t like too much heat) 1tsp hot smoked paprika 1/2tsp paprika 1/2tsp cayenne pepper 1tsp dried thyme 2tsp mushroom/porcini powder (available from Whole Foods or online) 1tbsp (heaped) tomato puree 200ml red wine 300ml beef stock (fresh or from stock cube) 1tbsp Worcestershire sauce Salt and freshly ground black pepper For the topping: 4 sweet potatoes 4 large baking potatoes Milk Butter 3 leeks, trimmed and sliced 100g grated cheese Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Preheat the oven to 160C fan (180C/350F/Gas Mark 4).

in the oven with the casserole to bake for the remaining time.

Heat up a glug of olive oil in a large frying pan over a medium/high heat. Season the flour with salt and pepper, then toss the lamb in the flour to coat lightly all over. Fry in batches until browned on all sides. As each batch of lamb is browned, transfer to a large casserole using a slotted spoon.

Melt a knob of butter in a frying pan over a low/ medium heat, add the leeks and cook for five to six minutes until soft. Set aside to cool.

Add another glug of olive oil to the frying pan, followed by the diced vegetables and sliced chorizo, the fresh herbs, bay leaf, garlic and chilli. Fry for four to five minutes until the vegetables soften, stirring frequently. Stir in the paprika (both types), cayenne, dried thyme and mushroom powder. Turn the heat to medium. Add the tomato puree and stir in, then pour in the red wine. Allow this to bubble away for a couple of minutes before stirring in the beef stock and Worcestershire sauce. Make sure you get all of the lovely bits off the bottom of the pan. Tip the whole lot over the meat in the casserole and give it a good mix round. The liquid should just be visible through the top layer of meat. Place the lid on the casserole and transfer to the oven to cook for two to two and a half hours - until the meat is tender. Stir occasionally.

When the meat filling is cooked, remove the casserole from the oven - the sauce should be rich and thick. Taste for seasoning, add more if needed and stir through. Cover the casserole and set aside. Increase the oven temperature to 180C fan (200C/400F/Gas Mark 6). Using a sharp knife (holding the potato with a tea towel), cut each sweet and baking potato in half lengthways and scoop out the soft flesh into a large bowl. Mash all the flesh together with a splash of milk and knob of butter. Stir through the leeks and half of the grated cheese. Season with black pepper. Cover the meat mixture with the potato and cheese mix. Scatter the remaining grated cheese over the top. Put the casserole back into the oven (without the lid) and bake for about 25 minutes until the cheese has melted, the top is golden and the meat juices are bubbling up around the edges. Serve hot, with a heap of broccoli and greens.

With about one-and-a-half hours of cooking time to go, prick the sweet and baking potatoes with a knife, then set them on a baking tray and place

Black Pudding Sausage Rolls (Makes 6-8 sausage rolls)

PA Photo/Ebury Press/Ellis Parrinder

Ingredients

Method

Pastry: 150g unsalted butter, frozen 110g strong white bread flour 110g plain flour, plus extra for dusting 2tsp dried sage 4-5tbsp ice-cold water 1 beaten egg, for glazing Sesame and poppy seeds, for sprinkling Salt and pepper

First make the pastry. Coarsely grate the butter onto a cold plate (do not handle the grated butter). Return to the freezer or put into the fridge to keep cold.

Filling: 400g good-quality pork sausagemeat 100g smoked streaky bacon, finely chopped 1tbsp finely chopped fresh sage 1/2tsp dried thyme 2 shallots, finely chopped 1/2tsp smoked paprika 100g chestnut mushrooms, finely chopped 1tsp finely chopped garlic (jarred or fresh) 1tsp finely chopped red chilli (jarred or fresh) 1tsp Worcestershire sauce 150g good-quality black pudding Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Sift both types of flour into a large bowl and mix in the dried sage, a pinch of salt and some pepper. Without handling the butter, drop it into the flour mix and, using a blunt knife, mix the grated butter into the flour to coat it all evenly. Sprinkle over two tablespoons of ice-cold water and mix in with the knife, then gradually add a further two to three tablespoons of water until the mix starts to come together. Finish mixing to a pastry dough with your hands but do not handle the pastry too much. If you need more water, add it a couple of drops at a time. The pastry should leave the sides of the bowl clean. Flatten the pastry into a square shape and wrap it in cling film. Leave to rest in the fridge for 30-45 minutes. Meanwhile, make the filling. Put all of the filling ingredients, except the black pudding, into a large bowl, with some salt and pepper. Start mixing with a large spoon - then I like to get my hands in and squish it all together. Fry off a small piece of the filling in a small pan to check the seasoning. Add more to taste. Cover and set aside until needed.

from springing back. Again, try not to handle the pastry too much. Trim the edges of the pastry rectangle so they are straight and neat. Spoon the sausagemeat filling into the centre of the pastry and squeeze it together to make a sausage shape that runs across the pastry rectangle, parallel to the 30cm sides (I find flouring your hands helps to do this). Push the sticks of black pudding into the filling in straight lines from end to end. With cold, floured hands, lift one 30cm side of the pastry up to the middle over the sausage filling and brush the outside edge with beaten egg (or milk). Lift the opposite side of the pastry up to slightly overlap and gently squeeze the edges together to create a sealed join of pastry. Roll the whole thing over so the join is on the bottom. Lift on to a tray and place in the freezer to chill for 10 minutes. Remove from the freezer and, using a sharp knife, cut across into 5cm pieces. Arrange these, with the join underneath, on a greased baking sheet that has been lined with greaseproof paper. Return to the freezer to keep cold while you preheat the oven to 180C fan (200C/400F/Gas Mark 6).

Remove the black outer coating from the black pudding and cut the pudding into 1cm sticks.

Glaze the pastry with beaten egg (or milk) and snip a small ‘V’ on top of each roll. Bake for 20-30 minutes until the pastry is golden brown and the sausage filling is cooked and no longer pink.

Set the chilled pastry on a lightly floured surface and roll out into a 60 x 30cm rectangle that’s about 3mm thick. Turn the pastry as you roll to stop it

Remove from the oven and gently lift the sausage rolls from the baking sheet on to a wire rack to cool. 151


FOOD & DRINK

Triple-Layer Berry Victoria Sponge (Serves 10-12)

PA Photo/Ebury Press/Ellis Parrinder

Ingredients

Method

335g self-raising flour 335g unsalted butter, softened 335g golden caster sugar 3tsp baking powder 6 large eggs Grated zest of 2 lemons Juice of 1 lemon 150g fresh raspberries 600ml double cream 500g fresh strawberries, hulled Icing sugar, to finish

Preheat the oven to 160C fan (180C/350F/Gas Mark 4). Grease three 25cm round, loose-bottomed sandwich tins and line the bases with greaseproof paper.

Whip the double cream thick enough to hold its shape - do not over-whip. Spoon the cream into a piping bag fitted with a round nozzle.

Sift the flour into a large bowl and add the butter, sugar, baking powder, eggs, lemon zest and juice. Mix together until smooth, fluffy and combined. If using an electric mixer, mix on a medium speed and do not over mix.

Reserve five of the strawberries for the decoration. Evenly slice the rest of the strawberries. Pipe a layer of double cream onto one of the plain sponges. Top with a layer of sliced strawberries. Spread a small amount of cream on the underside of the raspberry sponge, then place it gently on top of the strawberries (the cream helps the sponges stick together).

Divide two-thirds of the mixture between two of the tins. Reserve five of the fresh raspberries for the decoration, then add the rest to the last third of the mixture and mix them through, crushing some of the raspberries as you go. Put this mixture into the third tin. Place the three tins in the oven and bake for about 20 minutes until the sponges are risen and golden, and are slightly coming away from the edges (try not to open the oven before the 20 minutes are up). The raspberry sponge may need another five minutes. Remove the tins from the oven and turn out the sponges onto a wire rack. Leave to cool.

152

Pipe a layer of double cream on the raspberry sponge and top this with the rest of the sliced strawberries. Spread a small amount of cream on the underside of the other plain sponge, then set this on top of the strawberries. Push down gently and check the layers are even. Top with any leftover cream, the reserved strawberries, cut in half, and the reserved raspberries, then dust with icing sugar.

HEALTH & BEAUTY

VISJEUNE

10 ways to improve your self-confidence ready for the summer! There is an enormous amount of pressure on us women to look a certain way, wherever you look; magazines, television, social media, they all seem to only have room for a certain ‘look’. Confidence is a woman’s best friend, if she has that, nothing can stop her, but a woman who has lost sight of what makes her beautiful is soul destroying. The truth is, there is no amount of change that can pull you out of a self-hating rut if you don’t deal with the problem on a deeper level, which is why Lisa (owner and operator of Visjuene clinic) is leading the cosmetic industry from the heart, woman to woman. Though Lisa is a professional cosmetic nurse by trade, she is a firm believer in encouraging less permanent alternatives to those who come looking to go under the knife or needle. So in an effort to boost women’s self confidence here at 10 great tips along with treatments you could indulge in at Clinic Visjuene, to help you feel great this summer.

1

Hydration & Daily SPF

I know its something we hear all of the time, but just upping your daily water in-take can have a huge effect on your mood, your skin and your body. Increasing your water intake can flush out all the toxins in your body to improve the health of your skin and your body. As people age it becomes a lot more difficult for your body to retain water, so by storing more water into your system, you are assisting your body and skin in staying hydrated. Water keeps your body hydrated and refreshed and helps maintain your skins elasticity. The sun is persistent. It doesn’t take a break and releases harmful UV rays all day, all year round. Even on cloudy days UV rays still break through. Without daily protection you can expect a loss of elasticity an increase in wrinkles and issues with skin’s pigmentation. Think of it like an apple left out too long; it becomes dry, wrinkled and dehydrated. This is the same with your skin without an SPF.

Diet

Maintaining a balanced diet (not a crazy new weight loss frenzy) can help you build a healthy, happy body. So often we focus on cutting everything out in the hopes of making drastic changes in a short amount of time, but to ensure permanent, lifechanging results you have to change this mindset. Think of food as fuel for your body, give it the right stuff and it will run forever (and look great).

3

Treat yourself

So often we forget that the reason celebrities look so good all of the time is that it is quite literally their job to do so. So, cut yourself some slack and treat yourself to a little you time with a manicure or pedicure. Visjuene Nail treatments: £22 shellac express manicure, £33 Shellac Spa Pedicure.

Body Wraps

Perfect pre-holiday or beach visit. Step out with confidence, with a little added boost from the magical powers of the Shrinking Violet body wrap; the revolutionary, clinically proven, inch-loss body wrap. Its active ingredients penetrate cells and the fat busting formula takes off inches right after the first treatment.

Carbon Facial

It is great for people with blackheads, enlarged pores and oily or dull skin. It provides an instant refreshed appearance and leaves skin feeling smoother and firmer. A layer of carbon is applied and penetrates deep into the pores. The Laser light is extremely attracted to the carbon and when the laser is over the area, it destroys the carbon, taking dead skin cells and contaminants with it.

Shrinking Violet Body Wrap is a painless, effortless process that successfully removes fat in problem areas, such as thighs, buttocks and abdomen. It is engineered to also work on cellulite, fluid retention, sluggish circulation and detoxification.

Tired of unwanted hair? Laser Hair Removal or IPL is the most effective long-term solution to hair removal for men and women!

Semi-permanent lash extensions last up to three months with regular infills every 2-3 weeks. Lash extensions are weightless and are applied individually to each of your eyelashes.

Winner of six Tony Awards including Best Musical, Thoroughly Modern Millie is based on the 1967 Academy Award-winning film starring Julie Andrews and takes you back to the height of the Jazz Age in 1920s New York City, when ‘moderns’ including a flapper named Millie Dillmount, were bobbing their hair, raising their hemlines, entering the workforce and rewriting the rules of love. From explosive tap numbers to a ‘Fred and Ginger’ dance routine on a window ledge, and featuring hit songs including Gimme Gimme and Not for the Life of Me, Thoroughly Modern Millie is a brilliantly funny and entertaining show for all the family.
