AWARD FOR MINI FEST IS A REWARD The summer appears to be well and truly over and Party in the Park at Ashley Cross in Poole, happened to be one of those last memorable occasions to bring the summer social calendar to an end locally. The event marked an amazing 14 years of collaboration with local businesses, support from the community and the usual hard slog to deliver this mini fest to the residents of Poole and surrounding areas in Dorset. The team at JJ PR & Events worked tirelessly to recreate a carnival atmosphere similar to that of Notting Hill as the weekend was honoured to host two international figures that would normally have been at the Notting Hill Carnival, instead choosing to attend Party in the Park over the same weekend being the August bank holiday. Norman Jay MBE and Jazzie B OBE brought a whole new dimension to this year’s celebrations. With not far of 10,000 attendees and supporting the local charity Lewis Manning Hospice, Party in the Park was a mammoth success and organiser, Jane Jones said: ‘The hardest, busiest weekend so far achieved so much.

PROPERTY NEWS

We were swamped with people attending from all over Dorset and really feel we did our bit for Tourism in Poole as this leafy little enclave played host to a wonderful party in a fabulous park being Ashley Cross Green with families enjoying all the fantastic entertainment from live bands to masses for the children to enjoy. None of this would have been possible to pull off unless we had the commitment from our partners financially and I would personally like to thank Meridian Lifts, County Epos, Frost & Co, Rejuvenate IT and Quality Electrical, as without the support from these local businesses the event simply could not have happened!’ The organisers are also overwhelmed and honoured to have been bestowed a ‘Highly Commended’ award for the Tourism Promotion category at the recent Poole Tourism Awards ceremony sponsored by Sibbett Gregory. This goes to show how well received the event has been perceived over the last fourteen years and is testament to an event that just simply evolves with more and more to offer to Dorset residents and their families.

Insider information! Every edition The Property Guru will bring you upto date information regarding the local and national property market and behind the scenes news.

LABOUR CALLING ON FCA TO CONTROL RENTAL MARKET Labour launched its National Housing Policy at the recent Labour Party Conference in Manchester. Among the 50 points outlined in the housing plan was the recommendation for estate agents dealing with private rentals to be “brought under the ambit of the Financial Conduct Authority”. As of October 1st, every letting agent is now required by law to become a member of one of three ombudsman-style schemes – the Property Ombudsman, the Property Redress Scheme or the Ombudsman Services Property. The aim is to help protect private tenants against issues such as high fees and poor contracts by enabling them to escalate complaints and potentially receive compensation if treated unfairly.

FLAT FEE AGENCIES A new estate agency has opened in Basingstoke using a traditional office but breaking away from conventional commission rates by offering vendors a series of flat-fee options - and promising that a share of the profits will go to a local charity. One is the Menu Plan, offering to advertise the client’s property on Rightmove, other portals and the agency’s own website for £495, accompanying viewings for £250, handling negotiations on offers for £95 and managing sales progression for £295. The second is the Full Service which charges £1,895 as a flat fee on completion of the sale, with two other optional extras - professional photos and floorplan for £80 and an Energy Performance Certificate for £49.

SLOWDOWN IN RISING HOUSE PRICES? A series of reports issued within hours of each other suggest the market is at least slowing - but with some fear that it might be in more serious trouble. Halifax says annual house price growth rate has now peaked at 10 per cent and will grow in future at a considerably slower pace. Its latest figures - just one snapshot for one month based on the mortgage lender’s data, of course - shows a modest 0.6 per cent price rise on average across the UK in September. The price of the typical property rose to £187,188. Prices in the three months to September were 2.7 per cent higher than in the preceding quarter but the Halifax says this marked the second successive decline in the quarterly rate.

PURE TOWN PLANNING GROWS… AGAIN!

FANTASTIC QUARTER FOR GOADSBY IN BOURNEMOUTH

Some of their more avid followers will know that Pure Town Planning took on Neil McKeon last November, well since that time Neil has helped the firm go from strength to strength. It became clear to the Directors a couple of months back that due to an ever growing workload they needed another young, dynamic and knowledgeable planning consultant with that same hunger for delivering planning permissions. Well… they are delighted to announce that they have found him! Pure Town Planning welcome Chris Miell as a planning consultant. He will be working from their Bournemouth office where he has already settled in well. Chris has got stuck straight in

Goadsby in Bournemouth are continuing to build on their established name in the area. Having undergone a few staff changes at the beginning of the year, the office has gone from strength to strength. In the period of July to October this year the Bournemouth office has secured 34% more lets, compared to the same period last year. Achieving such a large increase over this period means Goadsby Bournemouth are in need of more landlords and more properties to satisfy the ever grown demand. Alexander Henley from Goadsby comments “The UK’s rental market has been in a boisterous state over the last few months, with properties regularly being secured on the first viewing. This has left a string of disappointment for applicants and a growing demand for properties”. If you have a property that is currently on the market to let or are considering letting a property out please contact one of our friendly team on 01202 544644 or contact Alexander directly on alexander.henley@goadsby.com

with an impressive number of planning statements written and applications already lodged within his first couple of weeks! Chris hails from Bristol originally but has been working as a planning officer for a number of years now for both Weymouth and Portland Borough Council and West Dorset District Council locally (gamekeeper turned poacher!). So not only does he know the planning system inside out (and what planning officer’s are looking for in order to grant applications) he also knows Dorset well. Chris shares our ethos and desire to provide an excellent service and achieve great planning results. With Chris on board the directors are

certain that they can continue to provide the bespoke Pure Town Planning service to ever more clients and keep on delivering more and more planning permissions. Why not give them a call today and find out how the team can help with your project(s) – 01202 585524 or email info@ puretownplanning.co.uk

ALAN & THOMAS BUYS SECOND BROKER IN DORCHESTER Dorset’s only independent Chartered Insurance Broker Alan & Thomas are on the expansion trail again having recently acquired Casterbridge Insurance in Dorchester. This is the second acquisition for Alan & Thomas in just two months as it comes hot on the heels of announcing the buy-out of Arthur Savage Insurance, also based in Dorchester. The decision to work with Casterbridge was an easy one to make for Alan & Thomas CEO Julian Boughton, “Our plan is to build a strong footprint in the South West and to bring Casterbridge into the A&T family along with Arthur Savage, another recently acquired Dorchester based broking business, made perfect sense to us”.“Casterbridge was set up in 1991 by its two principals, Corinne Simmonds and Patricia Buglass, who have over thirty years combined insurance experience in the local market. I am delighted that Corinne and her team will be joining us at Alan & Thomas, whilst Patricia is taking the opportunity to retire. Casterbridge have built

an excellent reputation in the marketplace for providing a local, friendly and knowledgeable service and I am confident their contribution to Alan & Thomas will help us immeasurably in achieving our aims in the South West”. The Dorchester arm of Alan & Thomas will operate from offices on High West Street for the time being but plans are afoot to expand the broker’s presence in the town and larger, more high profile premises will be sought, along with the provision of new jobs as demand for their service increases. This latest broker acquisition for Alan & Thomas, whose headquarters are based in Poole, takes them to four offices and sixty six staff members. They currently manage over £26 million in Gross Written Premium for commercial businesses and private individuals across the UK.

James Tiller MARLA Lettings Manager & Client Accounts

Ellie Mattison Senior Lettings Specialist

Expert local knowledge from the YOUhome Bournemouth lettings team are the Q. What best buy to let bargains in

Bournemouth?

James: Bournemouth is a thriving market for young professional couples with some unable to afford deposits to buy. We believe this demographic will underpin demand for some time to come. Good quality one or two bed properties in areas with easy access to the town centre such as Meyrick Park, Charminster, Westbourne and Boscombe are particularly attractive. Ellie: We see an ever increasing demand for housing in Bournemouth and Poole both to rent and to buy. Charlotte: There is also a strong student presence in Bournemouth, with two universities and a

host of language colleges. Accommodation for students is changing and moving away from the traditional large houses, many students now prefer to be in smaller properties. With a large market students will be looking for the best accommodation possible and within their affordability.

often should Q. How my property be inspected? Roxanne: As part of our fully managed service we carry out quarterly inspections at our properties. This timeframe offers a good balance so as not to disturb your tenants quiet enjoyment but also to ensure there aren’t any maintenance issues that might go unnoticed. It also helps maintain a good dialogue with your tenant so they feel happy and comfortable at your property.

Charlotte Hayward Lettings Specialist

can I Q. How achieve the best possible rent? Ellie: Focus on what makes your property stand out, good decor and high quality photos will certainly help. Ensure your property is presentable, tenants make swift decisions. First impressions really count and you only get one chance to make one. Charlotte: When tenants are able to pick and choose, the most successful properties that are being let are those offered newly or very recently refurbished. Roxanne: When rents achieved have dropped or remained static it is all too easy to justify holding off on improvements and maintenance with a mind to upgrading a property once market conditions have improved. This however is a self-defeating cycle. When tenant expectations are high, it is vital to ensure the general condition of a property is kept up together. James: The two most important areas to tenants are the kitchen and bathroom(s), where possible try to maintain these areas to a

good standard as this will give you a competitive edge.

can I reduce Q. How void periods? James: The best way is to be knowledgeable about the local rental market, allowing you competitively to price your property according to market conditions. Choosing the right agent is paramount, choose someone who is local to the area and experienced with renting your type of property. Timing is also very important; if a tenant does not want to renew their tenancy, we start advertising the property at least two months before the agreement ends to ensure we avoid void periods. Ellie: Finally be realistic, overpricing can lead to longer void periods. If a tenant is trying to negotiate our recommended approach is be firm but fair, think of the bigger picture.

ADVICE

THE POWER OF VIDEO MARKETING With HOUSE Magazine now producing promotional films for our clients we talk to our very own film maker Steve about why film is invaluable when promoting your brand.

How many times did you watch a video this week? Was it a video forwarded by a colleague, or a clip a friend shared on facebook, or something daft or thought provoking that’s trending on reddit, Pinterest or YouTube? Then you already know about the power of video. Or perhaps you’re one of the very few who doesn’t regularly expose themselves to video marketing, whether it’s selfies with stars, how-to videos on the minute details of obscure hobbies, or slick trailers for new products and services. If so you are in the minority.

In addition, we have a natural tendency to respond to motion – our innate sense of self-preservation and curiosity causes us to follow any moving object with our eyes, which causes the brain to investigate the movement. As a result, movement on a screen doubles the level of attention that we give to it.

The reach and appeal of video marketing is undoubted. 46% of people surveyed said they’d be more likely to ask for information about products or services after seeing them in online videos. And that’s not just a survey statistic. The average internet user spends 88% more time on websites that feature videos. Sites with video gain two to three times more monthly visitors.

Search engines too, are ‘hardwired’, through the algorithms that govern their rankings, to respond to video. Having video on the landing page of your website can double its chances of appearing on the first page of Google and video anywhere on your website can increase search engine traffic by 150%.

There are two this powerful own psychology the other is the engines operate.

96

reasons for effect: our is one and way search

Humans are hard-wired to respond to faces and movement. In 1992 scientists discovered the fusiform face area (FFA) which is part of the occipital lobe of the brain dedicated to recognising faces. As a result our natural instincts to look at, and respond to, faces can be triggered by seeing people in videos – our interest is engaged and we react positively to the visual stimulus.

So now you know the cold, hard facts about video marketing. But there’s another reason that it works.

For small to medium sized businesses, video is the swiftest and surest way to become recognised. Video marketing is effective because it has passion and heart, which allows any business no matter how niche, quirky or complex to express itself to customers. A one-woman outfit selling personalised iPod covers, five guys creating financial solutions, or a firm of thirty people making sofa cushions, are all just as likely to reach a huge audience as the giants of video like Apple and Virgin. All it takes is creativity, flair and a good product to bring to market. There are two things about video marketing that might surprise you. The first is the cost – high calibre video marketing is now cost effective for even the smallest enterprise. The second is that, unlike other publicity systems, video marketing has its own inbuilt distribution mechanism – with the advent of YouTube and other sharing sites, video has already become the most shared marketing method, ever.

If you’re ready to bring the dynamic potential of video marketing to your business, or talk about any print advertising call us and to explore how we can help. Call our creative team on 01202 200930 to find out more.

DIARY OF A LETTING AGENT Sharon Canning Move on Rentals This week a couple of investors came into the office with a hand full of properties they had been to look at and wanted to know which of them

ABSOLUTE

STONE & BRICK

Why not give your property a facelift?

in our opinion would achieve the best rental prices and would attract good quality people. We sat down with a lovely cup of coffee as the heavens decided to open outside and pour down with rain, they were more than pleased

Absolute stone and brick use a DOFF based cleaning system. It’s unlike any other steam system and can achieve temperatures 150°C.

to have entered the office prior to the downfall and certainly not in a hurry to leave, however that was okay, as anyone purchasing a buy to let property must do their due diligence and ensure they have all the facts presented to them, which may not have been presented in full by the selling agent (no offence to sales agents out there). One of the first things I noticed was the sales agent had written on the sales details the monthly rental price that could be achieved, this was very top heavy and although in certain market conditions this could be reached, it was not guaranteed, so we looked at realistic figures that will ensure their outgoings were covered, meaning anything above was a bonus.

The DOFF system will remove dirt, paint, moss, algae, fungi, some graffiti, soot and smoke damage from almost any surface. The system uses steam so there is no need to use a chemical biocide during the removal process and the surfaces are dry within minutes. Unlike jet washing, DOFF uses steam rather than preasure to clean so it wont damage the surface being cleaned and also the steam kills any moss, fungi bio matter so the surface stays cleaner for much longer.

Having worked in the lettings industry locally for over 23 years, we were able to provide real data on not just prices, the areas that are good and the areas to avoid, how quickly a property is let between lets and what tenants are expecting these days for their money, (let’s face it renting is not always the cheap alternative to purchasing).

STEAM CLEANING

We then went through the legal obligations of a landlord and costing for these for example a gas safety certificate, protecting the deposit, buildings insurance, leasehold block management fees and many other things. With all the facts and likely expenses the investors were able to realise the true return on their money, which automatically cut out two of the properties they had. With the remaining four properties we simply looked at the areas that would not only attract good quality tenants

ALL ASPECTS OF STONE & BRICKWORK including New build, Walling, Roofing • Dry Stone • Stone Repair & Treatment • Patios & Flooring, Also Block Paving, Repointing & General Building

but would also attract a buyer when they decide to sell in the future. We looked out of the window and with true English style, the sun was beaming and the investors went off to put in their offer. If you are thinking of purchasing a Buy to Let property, come and have a no obligation chat with our team who will advise on the area and likely returns of the investment you are looking at.

LED MYTHS

Dispelling common LED lighting myths

LEDlightGURU isn’t tied to a specific brand and offer perhaps the widest choice of LED products in the UK under one roof, ensuring we always recommend the best product for your specific requirement. Whether your project is large or small we are happy to help, so why not give us a call on 01202 960049.

EFFECTS OF LED LIGHTING ON LEARNING BEHAVIOUR

LED MYTHS MYTH 3 LEDs don’t look as good as my old bulbs Most people are resistant to change, even when they are not happy. Lighting is no exception with people still hanging onto their inefficient, old bulbs despite being able to save up to 90% of their energy bills with LED lighting. Many people are reluctant to make the change, as they feel ‘LED bulbs won’t be as good as my old light bulbs’. Certainly, even a few years ago, there were problems with LED light but modern LED bulbs offer far better light quality than traditional & older energy efficient bulbs, for example: A bluer white light has been found to increase spatial awareness for ‘ageing eyes’ by up to 15%, helping with day-today living and reducing accidents in the elderly. LED’s brighter lighting and unique colours of white enables older people to partake in more activities over the course of the day. Lighting in the workplace is especially important, when safety and productivity are significantly affected by the quality of light. Glare, colour temperature and optimal brightness all need to be considered and LED lighting can be fine tuned far more easily than any other form of lighting. Accredited psychological studies have shown that optimised LED lighting in schools delivers significant positive benefits on the speed of work, concentration levels and standards of behaviour. In the home, warmer lighting tones help us to sleep whilst cooler, bluer tones help us to wake up and LED lighting can change colour throughout the day to match these patterns.

OUTDOOR LIVING

THREE FAQ’S DOES IT NEED TO BE CLEANED? Our products only need to be cleaned after a spillage. The collection of airborne dirt is inevitable and we would recommend a simple spraydown with a hose or wipe over with a damp cloth or squeegee when required.

HOW STRONG IS IT? It is extremely solid and strong being able to withstand stress levels of well over 10 tons. It is heavy, durable, virtually indestructible and will not need to be replaced. In short, it is worry free.

IS THERE A COLOUR CHOICE? Yes. Our main colours are black and brown. However, we can produce products to a range of primary colours!

WHAT TO DO IN...

YOUR GARDEN THIS AUTUMN Autumn is the time to get down to work in your garden. At Reformed Plastics we offer everything from fencing to furniture to help transform your garden. At Reformed Plastics all of our products are made from 100% recycled plastic. We manufacture products ourselves and then sell direct to the Domestic and Commercial sector. Due to ever increasing importance to recycle & protect the environment, our products are made from 100% recycled plastic, and is the perfect alternative to wood. Our aims are to help rebuild the environment by utilizing a commodity, which people would otherwise just throw away, and so turn what to some would be rubbish into a valuable product for everybody. Our plastic has many practical & very useful properties & has an 130

infinite range of different uses, some of which being are as decking, fencing, outdoor furniture, planters, boardwalks, landscaping, bollards, signage & construction etc. The list of possibilities is endless and the long-term advantages it has over traditional materials are staggering! It’s a great investment, as it never needs to be replaced due to its high strength and durability, therefore it quickly pays for itself in the long run. In short, it’s worry free! The concept of Reformed Plastics was born over 15 years ago from the curiosity of its founder. Being an engineer by profession, and having had his own UPVC Windows business, and also being the practical and inquisitive person that he is, one day he decided to find out what was really happening to the waste that people were so freely throwing away.

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


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

FINANCIAL BENEFITS Achieving value for money is a key driver for any purchasing decision. Although some recycled products have greater up-front cost, their longevity and durability make them a more costeffective option over the long term.

TEAL APPEAL TURN ON TO TEAL This shade is perfectly in tune with our desire to bring the outside in and celebrate nature’s hues. “A teal sofa in a luxury fabric, like velvet, would create a stunning focal point,” says Nichola McFall at The Fabric Box. “Blend the colour with the rest of the scheme by adding teal-coloured accessories, like cushions and ornaments, which will catch the eye and give cohesion to the room.” Teal treats: Love seats, halfway in size between a sofa and a chair, making them perfect for space-starved rooms, are a brilliant idea and bang-on-trend when dressed in teal. Asda’s Chelsea Love Seat in Teal, is a snip at £395. For sheer luxury, it’s hard to beat a Velvet Tub Chair, £445, upholstered in ‘Ocean’, Oliver Bonas. So

It’s easily conjured with shades of teal, which could be paired with lighter hues like aqua, duck egg or minty greens, or simply keep the effect crisp and white.

ASK THE RECRUITMENT EXPERT Matthew Edge-Wilkins Platinum Property Partners Ltd Highly commended at the 2013 In-house Recruitment Awards, Matthew is the Recruitment & HR Manager at Platinum Property Partners Ltd. He is also the Founder of myinhouse recruitment; a separate division of the Platinum Group who provide a unique, virtual in-house recruitment service to SMEs, new business ventures and property companies.

Becoming an employer of choice In order to attract the best talent, your business needs to offer an attractive proposition to potential candidates. Whether your company sells private jets, holidays, or nuts and bolts there are many ways in which you can strive towards becoming an employer of choice in your region. It’s not just about money. You don’t necessarily need to offer the best salaries in your market to be an employer of choice, although it obviously helps if you have the budget to do so. Promoting your company brand and culture as being a great place to work, with lots of career/personal development opportunities etc can be just as much of a ‘carrot’ as offering an extra £1,000 a year more salary than the company down the road. There are a number of ways in which you can help promote your company as an employer of choice such as: A few things to think about… •

Have a good company website….something modern and dynamic looking... remember this is your ‘shop window’

Have a good careers page on your company website with case studies from existing employees

Increase your social media presence – be seen as active, current and knowledgeable on what is newsworthy in your sector

Have attractive staff benefits – these don’t have to be complex or expensive, just things that will benefit the majority of people – e.g. more than the statutory minimum holiday allowance, free parking, health cover cash plans (much cheaper than private medical insurance)

Do free talks at local universities and colleges about your industry

Gain relevant accreditation (e.g. Investors in People)

Entering and doing well at relevant industry awards

Reduce staff attrition

All of the above steps, as well as the obvious things like treating your staff well and maximising positive local PR opportunities will help make your business more attractive to potential candidates. People are the most important and influential assets in your business, so attracting the best local talent to work for you is paramount to your future success. For a FREE recruitment consultation, or if you have any questions in relation to any of the above points please contact Matthew on 01202 652100 ext 2229, or by email to: m.edge-wilkins@platinumpartners.co.uk or info@myinhouserecruitment.co.uk

MOTORING NEWS

MINI COOPER HATCHBACK ROAD TEST

The latest news on all things motoring. By Nick Fletcher

NEW MIDNIGHT SANDERO LIMITED EDITION Dacia has introduced a new special edition to its Sandero line-up – the Sandero Midnight. It builds on the existing top-of-the-range version by adding 15-inch ‘Aquila’ alloy wheels, Slate Grey metallic paint and gloss black exterior trim on the door mirrors and B-pillar. Inside, the Midnight theme continues with gloss black trim on the door handles, central console surround and steering wheel whilst the ‘Comfort Pack’ adds electric rear windows and a leather steering wheel to the equipment list. These enhancements are in addition to the standard equipment of air conditioning, electric front windows, cruise control, speed limiter, a trip computer, Bluetooth connectivity, a four-speaker radio/CD player and ESC with Traction Control. Sandero Midnight is available as either a petrol or diesel engine version. The 0.9-litre TCe 90 petrol engine achieves 0-60mph in 11.1 seconds and returns 56.5mpg. The 1.5-litre dCi 90 diesel engine achieves 0-60mph in 12.1 seconds and 99g/km Co2 and returns 74.3mpg.

BMW, owners of the Mini brand, have been exceptionally innovative in creating so many variants of this iconic model, and the latest is likely to prove exceedingly popular. It is the first Mini Cooper hatchback with 5 doors, and offers impressive practicality. With more load space, more rearlegroom and a third rear seat, it ticks most of the boxes when it comes to smart practical family transport, and is accessibly priced from £15,900. The new model offers an additional 15 millimetres of headroom and the car’s interior width at elbow height also increases, by 61 millimetres. The boot has a volume of 278 litres, up 67 litres or around 30 per cent compared to its3-door hatch stablemate. There are four engines with MINI TwinPower Turbo Technology to choose from. A 3-cylinder petrol engine with an

output of 136 hp powers the Cooper 5-door Hatch while the 4-cylinder petrol engine in Cooper S version offers 192 hp. The new Cooper D 5-door hatch is powered by a 116 hp 3-cylinder diesel engine. With the introduction of the new model, the Mini Cooper SD 5-door hatch is presented for the first time with a new 2.0-litre 4-cylinder diesel power unit that has an output of 170 hp. It has a 0-60 mph time of 7.4 seconds, and fuel economy of 68.9 mpg. This top-spec version is £20,050. In addition to anti-lock brakes, electronic brake force distribution, cornering brake control with brake assistant, and driving stability control system, the new Mini hatch also includes a drive-off assistant, fading brake support and dynamic traction control. This latter system permits controlled slip at the drive wheels so as to facilitate driving off on loose sand or deep snow.

The new Mini Cooper S 5-door Hatch and Mini Cooper SD 5-door Hatch feature a performance control system, which counteracts any tendency to understeer, providingan agile yet neutral driving response in corners. While the hatch offers extra capacity and versatility, the famous Mini driving characteristics and handling prowess remain. Grippy cornering, even at speed, is very reassuring, and the ride quality, though firm is still compliant enough for comfort. With a slick-action gearshift, precise steering feedback and eager response, especially from the 2.0 litre diesel unit, the driving experience is just wonderful, a perfect balance of power and control. FOR: Mini brand kudos and exceptional build quality, and dynamic driving feel. AGAINST: Hard to fault!

Volvo All Wheel Drive powertrain upgrade for V40 Cross Country Volvo’s successful Drive-E powertrain with a 245 hp petrol turbo T5 engine that was made available earlier this year for the V40 is now being introduced for the V40 Cross Country with the added capability of AWD. With 245 hp and 350 Nm of torque, the V40 has an 8-speed automatic gearbox with optional paddles on the steering wheel for manual gear shifting. Customers can place orders from January. Since they were introduced last year, Volvo’s ground-breaking four-cylinder Drive-E engines have been widely hailed for their unique ability to combine power 148

and efficiency with a small footprint. Compared to the V40 Cross Country’s previous T5 engine, the new powertrain reduces emissions to 149 g/km. This powertrain upgrade continues the series of enhancements that have been made to the V40 Cross Country this year. Other new additions have been a 19” Damara alloy wheel with grey diamondcut rims, a new exterior colour, Power Blue, as well as the updated on-board infotainment and navigation system, Sensus Connect, providing owners with a fully connected car.


MOTORING

‘Rockar Hyundai’ Hyundai have for a long time been one of the leaders in the value-vale-for-money car market aiming at a broad range of customers looking for style on a budget. The Korean car-maker is now looking to add a new dimension to the way it sells its cars. Today, buyers visit a car dealership just 1.3 times before purchase. Driven by the rise in internet usage and the rise of smart phones and tablets, 93% of all new car buyers conduct research online and now only tend to visit the dealership when they wish to sign on the dotted line.

Hyundai have teamed up with Rockar to announce the launch, early next month, of Rockar Hyundai. This will integrate in-store, online and mobile. The first business of its kind in the Automotive Industry will provide consumers with an all-encompassing online and in-store service that will allow them to research, test-drive, get a price for their old car, choose a payment option, purchase and service their new car all at the touch of a button. The digital store will be located at Bluewater, Europe’s leading retail,

leisure and entertainment destination. Bluewater has a footfall of 27 million per annum and serves one of the largest and most affluent catchments in the UK.

ALL-NEW FORD MONDEO REVEALED

Ford has opened its order books for the allnew Ford Mondeo that will be available in five-door and four-door (hybrid only) bodystyles, plus as an estate developed specifically for Europe. The first model for Europe to be built on Ford’s new global CD-segment platform, the all-new Mondeo petrol engine options will include the 1.5-litre and 2.0-litre EcoBoost from launch, with Ford’s fuelefficient and surprisingly powerful 1.0-litre EcoBoost petrol engine – that was named International Engine of the Year for an unprecedented third time in a row – joining the line-up in early 2015. ECOnetic Technology models will be available, powered by 1.6-litre and 2.0-litre diesel engines with anticipated CO2 emissions of 94g/km and 107g/km*. Separate all-wheel drive variants join the line-up early next year. The four-door Mondeo Hybrid combines a specially-developed 2.0-litre petrol engine

with an electric motor and 1.4kWh lithiumion battery to provide optimised fuel economy and low CO2 emissions. Mondeo Hybrid is the first hybrid electric vehicle that Ford will manufacture in Europe, delivering anticipated CO2 emissions of 99g/km. Among many new features Mondeo debuts a new a pedestrian technology that could help reduce the severity of accidents or help drivers avoid them all together. Pedestrian Detection can identify people in the road ahead, or who could cross the vehicle’s path, and automatically apply the brakes if the driver does not respond to warnings. The system processes information collected from a windshieldmounted camera, and radar located in the bumper, and checks it against a database of “pedestrian shapes” to distinguish people from typical roadside scenery and objects. All-new Mondeo also introduces Ford’s adaptive LED headlamp technology combining full-LED headlamps offering

STEED UPDATED

daylight-mimicking light clarity with Adaptive Front Lighting System that adjusts the headlight beam angle and intensity to match driving environment. There’s also an advanced version of its advanced parking system which enables drivers to detect suitably-sized parallel parking spaces and reverse hands-free into spaces parallel to the road and side-to-side with other cars. Additional driver assistance features include Active City Stop collision avoidance system, which readies the brakes if a potential impact is detected and – if the driver does not respond – will automatically apply the brakes at up to 25mph, and Lane Keeping Aid, which applies steering torque to guide the vehicle back in to lane if drifting is detected. New comfort and convenience features includes power-adjustable, memoryequipped steering column, power tailgate and heated steering wheel.

Two years after launching its Steed pick-up in Britain, Great Wall Motors has updated the 4WD double-cab model. The company says it has improved quality and specification, and prices start at £14,998 (CV on the road) - the lowest price in the UK. On sale now, the new Steed features higher quality trim materials and a more contemporary design of the instrument cluster. Equipment additions include a multi-function rear view mirror with automatic dimming and an outside temperature display. A tyre pressure monitoring system is also incorporated. The cargo bed measures 1,380 mm x 1,460 mm x 480 mm (length, width, depth). The Steed has a maximum payload of 1,050 kg and is now certified in the UK to tow 2.5 tonnes with a ‘braked’ trailer. The Steed is fitted with an ‘on-demand’ part-time, fourwheel-drive system. For 2015, the Steed is also equipped with rear disc brakes replacing the old drum units to increase stopping power and stability. The Steed uses a 138 hp 2.0 litre diesel engine and standard features include 16inch alloy wheels, daytime running lights, remote central locking, a Thatchamapproved Category 1 alarm, electric windows all round, air-conditioning, heated front seats and an Alpine CD/radio with USB/MP3 and Bluetooth connectivity and steering wheel mounted audio controls. 149

LE BATEAU REVIEW 141-143 Commercial Road Ashley Cross Poole BH14 0JD Tel: 01202 730 263

Fancy sitting in the companion of a great white shark and eat pizza off a surfboard? Le Bateaux will not disappoint to fulfill your bucket list. On a Monday morning House could not think of a better thing to do than just that. Across the lush green of Ashley Cross wood fire ovens are reaching 650 degrees. A quick glance at the menu and it is immediately apparent that Le Bateau is offering something a little more curious than your typical pizza. Amongst those favored topping combinations, the classics like ham and mushroom, chicken and BBQ sauce, and a trio of cheeses, Le Bateau have taken just a few steps outside of the box. Duck on a pizza, yes! China meets Italy and they have fallen in love. Shredded duck generously drizzled with hoisin sauce and thinly sliced cucumber and spring onion is the filling you would notably find in a Chinese pancake. At Le Bateau you can find it on a pizza. All weather warmer pulled pork with apple sauce, is no longer saved for hog roasts. Dorset has its own pizza delight. These are just a few of the more unusual pizza toppings that Le Bateau is serving up. House got stuck in and tried multiple toppings. A particularly loved topping was ‘Rosary Goats Cheese’. If you like goat’s cheese, then I cannot put this any other way than experiencing goat’s cheese heaven. Sweet caramelized red onions classically paired with goat’s cheese just got taken up a notch with the addition of roasted sweet potatoes and sun blushed tomatoes.

It’s hard to detract from chat of such sumptuous offerings, but a mention must be given to the atmosphere in which Le Bateau have created for your dining pleasure. The rather unorthodox interior provides a setting designed to intrigue. For those looking to make an evening of a tasty meal, Wednesdays you can treat your ears to some local acoustic sounds, and Fridays its happy hour till 7pm. Hungary?

FULL FLAVOUR, LOW FAT

Watching your weight, but don’t want to survive on rabbit food? Fear not - food writer Angela Nilsen has given classic recipes a low-calorie twist. We take a (guilt-free) taste.

If you find sticking to a healthy eating regime too much of a struggle, because you simply can’t give up your favourite foods, Angela Nilsen’s new book could be just the ticket. The former food editor of BBC Good Food magazine has taken traditionally calorie-packed meals and treats, including a full English breakfast, pasta dishes, curries, cakes and desserts, and recreated recipes for them with less sugar, fat and salt - but the same deliciousness, she promises. Make It Lighter also features ‘slimmed down’ versions of fish, chips and mushy peas (classic version, 915 calories; lighter version, 649), Thai green curry (classic version, 817 calories; lighter version, 487) and even chocolate brownies - which Nilsen’s managed to make possible at a less-than-naughty 191 calories, compared to the typical 314 in a regular brownie. “They are all classics, the kind of food you love to eat but might feel a bit guilty about,” she says, describing the recipes in the book.

“My challenge was to find ways of maintaining the desired taste while creating a much lighter version - recipes with less fat, sugar or salt, the very ingredients that make them so popular in the first place.” Nilsen admits the task wasn’t always easy, as she refused to compromise on the irresistibly rich taste of well-loved treats, and wanted to avoid using low-fat alternative ingredients, as she felt the full-fat versions added to the taste. But, she says: “Where I have occasionally used them, I’ve worked out lower fat ways of increasing richness and flavour.” She insists these aren’t ‘diet’ recipes - just ways of enabling people to eat the food they enjoy, but in a lighter, healthier way. “They are recipes you can enjoy with your family and friends without the guilt.” Her personal favourites include the lemon tart and the chocolate brownies: “I like them for the surprise element, as the secret ingredient I used to keep fat down but gooeyness intact was mayonnaise, which fooled everyone.”

RECIPE

Nilsen also singles out her lighter hummus recipe, in which she uses a whole bulb of roasted garlic after it was recommended to her by a friend in Canada. “I tried it and was amazed how well it worked,” she says. “The roasted garlic didn’t overpower and it gave the hummus its creamy texture, which didn’t require as much oil. “It’s these kinds of struggles and unforeseen twists that have made all the recipes in the book an exciting journey to take.” Each recipe comes with tips to help you cook more healthily, such as brushing vegetables with a little oil then roasting or cooking them on a griddle, instead of frying them, or bulking out a shepherd’s pie with lentils, so you can cut down on mince.

Twice-baked cheese souffles Ingredients For the souffles: 1tbsp (heaped) polenta 1 1/2 tbsp olive oil, plus extra for greasing 1tsp butter 25g plain flour 250ml semi-skimmed milk 50g grated Parmesan cheese

1tsp Dijon mustard 50g light soft cheese 2tbsp (heaped) snipped chives, plus extra to serve 2 large egg yolks 3 large egg whites 50g rocket, to serve Freshly ground black pepper

For the tomato salsa: 350g cherry tomatoes, finely chopped ½ small red onion, finely chopped 1tsp tomato puree Pinch of crushed dried chillies Freshly ground black pepper

Method Lightly brush six 150ml ramekins with olive oil and coat with the polenta, shaking out any excess. Place the ramekins in a small roasting tin.

Meanwhile, make the salsa. Mix together the tomatoes, onion, tomato puree and crushed chillies. Season with pepper, cover and chill until ready to serve.

minutes until golden on top and risen. Carefully remove from the tin and leave to cool. The souffles will sink as they cool.

Heat the oil and butter in a medium saucepan, stir in the flour and cook, stirring, for one minute. Remove from the heat and pour in the milk, a little at a time, stirring well until the mixture is smooth.

Preheat the oven to 200C (fan 180C/gas mark 6).

The souffles rise again when re-baked, and you can prepare them up to 24 hours in advance. If re-cooking, preheat the oven to 200C (fan 180C/gas mark 6) and remove the souffles from the fridge about 10 minutes before baking. Turn each out of its dish and place on a baking sheet lined with baking parchment.

Return the pan to the heat and cook, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens and comes to the boil. Remove from the heat. Reserve one heaped tablespoon of the Parmesan and stir the rest into the mixture, with the mustard, then the soft cheese in small spoonfuls. Add the chives, season with pepper and leave to cool slightly. 152

Beat the egg yolks into the cheese mixture. Whisk the egg whites to stiff peaks. Using a large metal spoon, fold a spoonful into the mixture to slacken slightly. Gently and evenly fold in the remaining whites, half at a time, keeping the mixture light and airy. Divide the mixture evenly between the ramekin dishes. Pour cold water into the roasting tin to come halfway up the sides of the dishes. Bake for 15-18

Sprinkle the reserved Parmesan over each souffle, then bake for 10 minutes or until risen. Scatter with chives. Serve each with a pile of salsa and rocket.

ASK THE EXPERT Tony Peters Planit Mortgages Your local mortgage adviser Interest only? Today we revisit this hot topic. Recently I did a column about interest only mortgages that attracted a lot of enquiries. It appears that there are a lot of people on interest only deals so I am going to revisit the issue for a specific group of borrowers. The problems that we are being asked about are from people on interest only and nearing the end of their mortgage term with nowhere to go. Lenders are very reluctant to offer interest only mortgages and so the number willing to do them has dropped to only a handful. You have to have a minimum of £150,000 equity in the property in order to qualify for interest only now and you can not have more than 50% of the value of your property on interest only. That is now but what do you do if you are already on a fixed rate deal and you are nearing the end of your mortgage term? You could downsize but you will need at least £150,000 to get you something like a two bedroom flat or possibly a 2 bed terraced house which is why lenders are requiring this amount of equity from new borrowers.

THE PERFECT WEDDING SUPPER

But what if you want to stay in your current home? If you are on interest only and have less than £100,000 of equity and only a few years left on your mortgage term it’s not as if you can sell up and downsize as there is nothing to downsize to for that price. I

For healthier & younger looking skin

ASK THE EXPERT Dr. Linda Eve MBBS, MBCAM

TATTOO REMOVAL How does medical laser tattoo removal work?

For healthier & younger looking skin

TATTOO REMOVAL Hate your tattoos?

Safe & Affordable Medical Laser Tattoo Removal available at Evenlines.

Short pulses of high powered laser light are emitted from the Q Switched laser and absorbed by tattoo ink particles, breaking them down into smaller pieces which are slowly absorbed and dispersed. A gradual fading of the tattoo then occurs over a series of treatments. How is the treatment carried out? The skin is cleaned and the laser applicator is passed over the tattoo releasing quick pulses of light. An audible ‘clicking’ noise is heard as the ink particles shatter. After treatment a soothing lotion and light dressing may be applied. How does the treatment feel? Most patients describe the sensation as similar to a hot pin prick or flick of an elastic band. Whilst mildly uncomfortable, most people tolerate treatment well. An anaesthetic cream may be applied to make the treatments more comfortable.

Before/After

BOOK FOR A FREE CONSULTATION TODAY!

How does the skin look after treatment? An instant whitening of the skin is seen after treatment which generally fades quickly. The area may feel tender for a few hours and can be red and swollen for up to 48 hours. Some tattoos will form a graze which must be left to heal naturally. Initially the tattoo is unlikely to look any different but will fade over the next 4 to 8 weeks as the body disperses it. Are there side effects? Very rarely the skin may become lighter or darker, or a small blister may form. Change to skin texture and scarring is possible, though uncommon, and is more likely if any grazes are not allowed to heal naturally. There may be loss of the natural tanning ability in the area treated, which usually improves with time. How many treatments are needed? This depends on the density and colour of inks plus the age of the tattoo. Amateur tattoos can be quick to remove, taking 1 to 6 treatments, whereas professional tattoos may take up to 15 treatments spaced 6 to 10 weeks apart. How long does each treatment take? Treatment time is between 30 – 45 mins depending upon the size of the tattoo. Consultation procedure. Prior to treatment you will undergo a medical consultation with our qualified laser nurse at Evenlines in order to confirm suitability. Before proceeding you will be asked to sign a consent form and undergo a test patch.

22ND - 25TH OCTOBER PIRATES OF PENZANCE Take a ship–load of brigands led by the cutlass-wielding King and looked after by Ruth, a piratical maid of all works. Add young pirate apprentice Frederic who espies winsome Mabel on the beach and, despite her protective Major-General Father, has romance in mind. Into this paradox mix a bevvy of pretty daughters plus the inept local police force and the result is the G&S favourite The Pirates of Penzance. To the twists and turns of the plot weave in magical music and plenty of humour as Bournemouth Gilbert & Sullivan Operatic Society presents this tuneful and light-hearted operetta. Described by Director Claire Camble-Hutchins as “a lively romp” and promising creative choreography, the baton will be waved by Musical Director Keziah Jacombs as the pair try to keep the motley crew in order. Ian Metcalfe plays the fearsome

ADVERTISE HERE FROM JUST £50 A MONTH 162

Pirate King who is secretly soft-hearted and another wellknown face, John Gerken, is The Very Model of a Modern Major-General. Bournemouth G&S stalwart principal Cherrill Ashford takes the role of Ruth while the Sergeant of Police leads the cowardly constabulary in telling why A Policeman’s Lot is not a Happy One. Once again Roseanna Bowen takes the soprano lead as Mabel and sings the soaring Poor Wand’ring One as Frederic makes her heart beat faster. Rossano Sal returns to the Society after several years to play the young pirate apprentice, he and Roseanna making a handsome, romantic and melodious couple. Pirates of Penzance at Lighthouse Poole – don’t miss it!
