TWO BRAND NEW HOUSES IN PARKSTONE Goadsby Lettings are delighted to announce that we have been instructed to let TWO stunning newly built family homes in this BRAND NEW development in Parkstone. Both properties benefit from three double bedrooms, modern interior, allocated parking and a private garden. They are both priced at £995 PCM and the EPC rating is band B. Cherelle Lewis, Lettings Manager in Poole comments ‘We are delighted to have been instructed to let these stunning properties, if you would like to arrange a viewing we would advise to call ASAP as we anticipate them to go quickly’. For more information please contact Cherelle Lewis in our Poole office on 01202 686555 or email Cherelle.lewis@goadsby.com.

NEW DIRECTOR TAKES THE HELM AT WINKWORTH, PENN HILL Winkworth Penn Hill has a new Director and owner at the helm, Neil Roff. However, Neil is not new to the business or the area, having been a partner at the Penn Hill office since 2007 before taking over from the previous owner in April this year.  With over ten years of experience in the property market in the Bournemouth and Poole area, Neil is perfectly placed, alongside his team of local experts, to help with all the area’s property needs. And with the market at the best it’s been since the downturn, Neil is really looking forward to moving the business forward. Although the Winkworth

Penn Hill office is owned and operated by Neil, the office is part of a much larger network. There are over 90 Winkworth offices in the UK alone, with over 60 in London- the capital’s largest estate agency, meaning that the Penn Hill office is able to offer service at a local level with a large brand backing. Neil Roff, Director of Winkworth Penn Hill, comments: “I have been running the Winkworth Penn Hill office for the past eight years and extremely excited to have now taken over the business. I have always enjoyed working in the Penn Hill market and within this successful office, I am now looking forward to

continuing this success with the help of my extremely enthusiastic experienced team. The demand for character family homes is exceptionally strong, especially as there is a lack of instructions coming to the market at present. Therefore if anyone in the area, or anyone looking to move to Penn Hill, needs help with any element of moving, then please pop in and speak to us, as we are more than happy to help and answer any questions you may have.” (Team Photo left to right-George, Louise, Neil, Melanie, Nick )  

POOLE RESIDENTS ARE ‘WHEELIE’ ENJOYING THE SUN With the recent warm weather, the Dolphin shopping centre in Poole is delighted to see an increase in the number of people cycling to the centre following the launch of its Don’t Drive Wednesday’s initiative. On Wednesday July 17, the centre counted more than 60 bicycles at midday using the racks outside the centre.The green community project, which was launched back in May, has been suc-

6

cessful in promoting other transport options available to shoppers, tenants, staff and businesses.Dolphin centre manager, John Grinnell, said: “The sunshine has a positive effect on people’s attitudes, everyone wants to be out enjoying the good weather while it’s here and in the last week we have seen an increase in people cycling to the centre, and not only on Don’t Drive Wednesdays. “The Dolphin

is committed to promoting sustainable transport and we believe encouraging people to leave their car at home, when possible, is the right way forward in making Poole a greener town.” Since the launch of the Dolphin shopping centre’s Don’t Drive Wednesday’s campaign, the centre has installed a further 36 bicycle racks, now totalling 160 racks.

Goadsby are pleased to announce that we have let a stunning 3 bedroom house in the popular location of Lower Parkstone just south of Ashley Road. The property which was only a few years old generated a great deal of interest within the first few days of coming to the market. Goadsby were delighted to be able to let it so quickly achieving the full asking price of £1,100 PCM. David Jacobs commented ‘I am pleased to have let this property so quickly for the landlord ensuring there will be a tenant in place as soon as possible’. Goadsby now require more suitable properties for their applicants so if you are a landlord who is struggling with that all important let or interested in renting out your property please call Cherelle and we would be more than happy to arrange for a market appraisal.

To contact Cherelle, call on 01202 685666 or email Cherelle.lewis@goadsby.com


OUT WITH THE OLD, IN WITH THE NEW

Its out with the old and in with the new at Paul Watts Estate Agents, as they change from the current distinctive red for sale boards to new black and white ones. Owner, Margaret Annable, comments “The red boards created a lot attention when we first started to use them, as they were

so different to other agents’ boards. However, we thought we would like a change so have redesigned them, but we still like to think the boards are a little different to the norm! See the difference in this photo taken at Queens Park Golf Course (courtesy Ben Dilling).

THE SKY’S THE LIMIT FOR THE LEWIS-MANNING HOSPICE Six local people braved the skies and jumped from ten thousand feet over Salisbury Airfield on July 6 in tandem skydives, raising over £4000 for Lewis-Manning Hospice in Poole, which offers free specialist palliative nursing care to hundreds of local people living with cancer and other life-limiting illnesses. Daisy Lapworth, Diana

Richardson, Stephen Sibley, Benn Cobb, Michelle Day and Damien Frewer all raised significant Skydive sponsorship to help the Lilliput based charity, which is celebrating its 21st birthday this year, with more donations still expected. Paul Tucker, Marketing & Communications Officer for Lewis-Manning Hospice said: “We are

absolutely thrilled with the money raised by these six daredevils. They all really enjoyed the experience, particularly on such a beautiful and clear day. We are very grateful to all their fundraising efforts, helping to make a positive difference to people with cancer and other life-limiting illnesses.”

SOUTH WEST HAIR LOSS & BEAUTY SALON FEATURES ON ITV Simone Thomas, owner of South West based MWAH Bournemouth, features in Friday’s episode of ITV Harbour Lives as TV presenter Ben Fogle goes behind the scenes of the Polo Fashion Show held at Sandbanks, Poole. Simone Thomas reveals the true story behind the fashion show and why she wanted to be involved. “We called the show “Illusion” because so often how we look on the outside is not how we are on the inside. The majority of us face adversity at some point in our lives but fashion and beauty can help our self image as the way we look on the outside can also dictate how we

feel on the inside. That’s the fashion paradox! “Sadly the fashion industry has long been associated with the perfect image few feel they can attain, and is often blamed for the rise in body image problems. The majority of the models in our show have experienced emotional and physical lows in their life and the team at MWAH (Make Up, Wigs and Hair) worked closely with clothes designer Jason Edwards from Crystal Adonis to transform the models so when it came to the finale and the models revealed their “secret” it really made an impact. in TV, Film and Magazine

A&T TAKE PART IN APPRENTICE CHALLENGE Local insurance specialists Alan & Thomas recently took part in the Wessex Cancer Business Challenge to turn £25 into as much money as possible in just one week and raised over £530. Based on BBC’s The Apprentice with Lord Sugar, the challenge saw the Poole office of A&T compete against other local businesses in Dorset to come up with fundraising ideas to raise money for the Trust, where the starting £25 and

any profit thereafter could be re-invested to make larger returns. ‘Project Manager’ for the task was A&T Marketing Manager Hayley Baverstock, who rallied the team into organising various activities throughout the week-long challenge, which included a skittles evening, a special afternoon tea treat and a bake sale in the Poole office.“We also brought some of our clients into the mix and asked for their help in the challenge,

for which we are extremely grateful. Poole Audi donated an Audi Convertible for the weekend for us to raffle off to staff, AFC Bournemouth donated two tickets to a Championship league game for the coming season as another raffle prize and we helped Bournemouth-based Big Chief Ices to sell ice creams for a slice of the profit once we had sought permission for them to be located opposite our office, for the weekend.”

TOWER RETAIL PARK BOHO ECLECTIC

Everyone has their own idea of what Boho eclectic styling is. After all, the beauty of eclecticism is all about mixing up pieces that you love but don’t necessarily match. To pull the look off you need a good eye for colour and a big dose of wild abandon. Styles and shapes aren’t important – it’s all about a mix and match attitude, creating spaces which ooze personality but have a casual feel. Glam up the living room with lace materials, beads and sequins plus incorporating an eye-catching armchair will give your living room a lavish feel. Comfort is everything, so inviting armchairs and large coffee tables are the order of the day. In the bedroom, pile on the accessories as the more layers and textures you add, the more exciting your boudoir will be. Layer up your bed with beaded cushions in rich damson and fuchsia shades for a luxurious look. Walls can be painted in any colour, but indulging in neutrals – ivory, milk and buttery taupe – work beautifully. For a confident

hippy vibe, incorporate mosaic tiles for a splash of colour and be bold with your colour choices, partner red with green or orange with purple, or opt for vibrant metallic colours. Boho’s all about experimenting, expressing yourself and being as creative as you like. It’s a fabulously fun approach for those with the rebellious, hippy streak who like to do their own thing. For expert advice in achieving the desired look in your home, visit Tower Retail Park in Poole home to Homebase, Topps Tiles, Fabric Warehouse, Sharps, ChorleyBurdett Furniture, The Bed Store, and Carpet Barn.

HEARNES – WHERE SERVICE COUNTS


INTERVIEW

Back To The Future...

Hearnes Estate Agents Lyndon Le Boutillier and Sally Gravener talk to House about the new office, their values and the future for Hearnes.

HOW DID THE HEARNES STORY BEGIN?

40

L: Lynda and I met in 1996 and married in 1998, along the way deciding that we would go into business together. The combination of her personnel and customer service background with my years in estate agency drew us to opening Hearnes with our motto ‘Where Service Counts’. Our rapid success allowed us to open two further branches, then in 2006 we agreed to sell our Bournemouth office after I had a serious skiing accident which took a year of convalescence before I was fully back at work. Sally and Anthony then joined us as shareholders and directors in 2009, running the Ringwood office together and taking it on to new heights of service and performance. Sally is now coming to run the Bournemouth office which we are just opening in the town centre again.

WHERE DID THE NAME COME FROM? L: Lynda’s maiden name is Hearne and as she only had a sister the name would have disappeared when she married so we decided to keep it going this way, her Mum still loves it when the signs go up, unfortunately her Dad died three years ago but he was so proud of her running her own firm. IS IT GOOD TO BE BACK IN BOURNEMOUTH? L: It’s great to be back in the town centre again. I’ve worked in Bournemouth since 1992 and sometimes over the last few years have missed the vibrancy of having a town centre branch. We’re really excited about being able to act for clients in Bournemouth and to market the homes of our current clients from here as well.

SALLY, HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT YOUR NEW VENTURE? S: It’s a fantastic opportunity and I feel really exhilarated about opening in Bournemouth. I’ve spent most of my career in Agency increasing business in branches that were already running, so this is my first chance to open a new office starting with a blank canvas. WHAT ARE YOU ENJOYING MOST ABOUT THE PROJECT? S: There are two sides of a project like this; firstly the design and build of the office and secondly the business operations of the company. The design has been really exciting as we wanted to ensure that our traditional style and values are portrayed correctly. We then wanted to install cutting edge technology to display properties in their best possible light. I think we’ve created a bright and airy workplace with a friendly

atmosphere that clients and customers will enjoy; we’ve tried to keep to a traditional estate agency interior but with some creative touches. Naturally it’s a nervous time as you open the doors and wonder how many people will want to use your services, but with our other branches breaking new records this year, I really hope that Bournemouth residents call us out to see what we can do for them like the residents of Ferndown and Ringwood are. SO IS THERE ANYTHING NEW THAT YOU’RE BRINGING IN? S: I’m so glad you asked that! We have one of the first interactive Touch Screen window displays in the country. It allows us to display every single property that we have on the market, from all our offices, in the window 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.


ADVERTISING FEATURE

SO DOES THAT MEAN YOU’LL BE SPENDING MORE TIME AT THE BEACH? S: I wish it did but no, hopefully it means I’ll be spending more time out viewing properties helping clients to find their ideal home or sell one. Ultimately that’s what we try to spend as much of our time doing as possible because the more we’re out - the more clients achieve their goals. Unfortunately it takes a lot more than just a screen to get to that point which is why Estate Agents work long hours. Don’t feel too sorry for us though, it’s great to be able to have such a positive impact on someone’s move, with lots of happy people coming into the office to pick up their keys or hand them to us as they move on.You also get to see some lovely homes along the way! WHAT MAKES HEARNES A GREAT FIRM THEN?

Sally Gravener Owner & Managing Director of Bournemouth

L: Over the years lots of people have asked how you make an estate agency office successful and there really is only one answer – Everything! Probably the best way to sum it up is with the saying ‘If a job’s worth doing it’s worth doing properly’. Firstly, create a work place that people enjoy coming to, if your staff are happy then you have the right starting place. Don’t get me wrong we all have our off days and we all make mistakes, but we try to support each other and learn from our mistakes. Next, make sure that we do everything to the best of our ability, from the best brochures, the best photography, marketing material, advertising, websites, to the best way of passing on messages and making sure that calls are returned and all the little details are done in the best way. There are so many things to be done every day and it’s important that everyone pays attention to the little things as well as the obvious ones. We based our company on sound Christian principles so it makes business decisions really quite easy for us. Our boards are different and so are we! WHAT DO YOU THINK THE FUTURE HOLDS?

Lyndon Le Boutilier Founder & owner

S: We intend to keep the expansion of Hearnes going, but not at the expense of our service. Rapid expansion usually means a watering down of the core values and quality of work. James has recently taken over the Ferndown branch when Lyndon came to

Bournemouth and he is doing a fantastic job there. He has a strong team of people with many years of experience at Hearnes between them, which means that they all hold the same values as the Directors. When the right opportunity arises we will take it and as we have many longstanding employees we know that our values can be introduced in at least one more branch in the near future. After that we will only expand when we have the right people that are ready to take it on and find the right shop unit to do it in. LYNDON, DO YOU HAVE ANY OTHER PLANS? L: With four children at home I’m kept very busy so my immediate plans are to continue working hard and try to spend as much time with my wife and family as possible. FOUR CHILDREN! HOW OLD ARE THEY? Jordan is 12, Noah’s 10, Samuel’s 8 and Grace has just turned 7. They are a lovely bunch and they’re growing up so quickly that I don’t want to miss any of their childhood. IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE THAT YOU’D LIKE OUR READERS TO HEAR ABOUT? S: Oh yes, there’s plenty more but we don’t really have space for it all here.

PUSH THE BOUNDARIES On a shoestring budget but with a craving for dazzling decor? Designer and stylist Abigail Ahern shows Gabrielle Fagan how it’s possible to create stunning looks for less.

Rock 'n' Roll style room featured in Decorating With Style by Abigail Ahern, photography by Graham Atkins-Hughes, published by Quadrille, £16.99

Rasta cushion, from £628, Abigail Ahern shop and www.abigailahern.com

It’s refreshing and unusual to meet an international interior designer who believes decor rules were made to be broken, trends can be trashed and money doesn’t buy style. But blonde, leggy Abigail Ahern has never been one to mince her words or conform to a stereotype, and she ably proves her point by creating adventurous decor that dazzles and rooms that rock. Her shop is a well-established destination for style connoisseurs and her new home accessories Edition collection, full of quirky character with animal lamps and vibrant colour, launches at Debenhams in September. “Style has absolutely nothing to do with money. I’ve seen hundreds - no, thousands - of tasteful, colour coordinated spaces that are expensively decorated and yet flat, dull, uptight and bland,” she says firmly. “They don’t seduce, tantalise or increase the pulse rate because they’ve been decorated to within an inch of their lives. What a yawn!” Her own style is “indefinable”, she says, as it evolves constantly and “flirts with going over the top, but I always stand a little bit back from the edge as I want it to feel beautiful not crazy.

Dithering over decor choices, poring over paint charts and generally stressing over the whole interior business is definitely not her way, nor does she believe it should be ours. Her own rooms burst with colour and artfully-arranged possessions sourced from auctions and flea markets, a heady mixture of vintage and modern. “Interiors that ooze style are not perfectly co-ordinated, nor can they be bought out of a catalogue,” declares the designer, who reveals how she creates inspiring spaces in her new book, Decorating With Style. “But, and this is a big but, if you want life-changing interiors - the ones that make your heart beat just a little bit faster - you need an open mind and a big dose of self-belief. “The trick is to experiment and have fun along the way. Push the boundaries, pick pieces that tug at your heartstrings when you see them, and make you feel uplifted. “Too much tastefulness is dull and too much fun is tacky. It’s all about getting the balance right.” Follow Ahern’s guide to creating three of her favourite looks: Classic, Boho and Rock ‘n’ Roll. 59


INTERIORS

CLASSIC COOL

60

Who does it suit? Those who are bored of passing fads and predictable trends and want a look that stands the test of time, while reflecting the beauty of the past. Calm and order, not be confused with dull, appeal but they're brave enough to give a home their own cheeky decor stamp. How do you create it? "With a nod to the past and a wink to the future, classic style is all about balance, symmetry and order." "It's a style that marries luxe materials - think metallics - with super-glam fabrics such as cashmere and leather. Woods are often dark, furniture often crisp and defined and symmetry abounds with pairs of lamps, urns, mirrors or vases. "Combine dark wall shades with white

woodwork for an iconic look, but don't be too predictable - this style is about beautiful, relaxing order but we also want a jaw-on-the-floor 'wow' effect." The ideal backdrop for the look is moody, earthy colour tones for walls terracotta, taupe and moss - or the darker tones of olive, peat and charcoal. "If that's too heavy for your taste, opt instead for linen, lilac and stone, but avoid anything jarring - a classic room needs to feel warm and inviting."

GET THE LOOK Mud beaded chandelier, ÂŁ2,750, from Abigail Ahern's shop and online (www. abigailahern.com).

TOP TIP Architectural features, curved lines and decorative mouldings work perfectly with this style. Source them from salvage yards, or DIY stores for modern reproductions of cornicing, coving and ceiling roses.


BEAUTIFUL BOHO Who does it suit? Decoristas with a rebellious, hippy streak who like to do their own thing, have a quirky, eclectic mix of possessions and always have an eye for a bargain because their budget is tight! How do you create it? "Boho's all about experimenting, expressing yourself and being as creative as you like. It's a fabulously fun approach and I love it because there are no rules," says Ahern. "To pull the look off you need a good eye for colour and a big dose of wild abandon. Styles and shapes aren't important - it's all about a mix and match attitude, creating spaces which have a global influence but a casual feel." It helps not to be too precious about what you buy. The coolest boho interiors are filled with stuff gathered from car boot sales and auction houses, as well as handme-downs. "Boho interiors ooze personality. Dispensing with formality, they are enchanting spaces where you instantly want to sit

down, hang out and fling off your shoes!" says Ahern. "Glam up the setting with lace, beads, sequins and shells - pile on the accessories as the more layers and textures you add, the more exciting the space will be." Walls can be painted in any colour, but cosseting neutrals - ivory, milk and buttery taupe - work beautifully. For a confident hippy vibe, splash on colour, partnering red with green or orange with purple, or opt for jewelled and metallic colours and get loud with stars and stripes, squiggles, diamonds or flowers.

TOP TIPS Pieces that tell a story, from flea market art to souvenirs, so it looks as though you've travelled the world, is the essence of this look. Comfort is everything, so squishy sofas, inviting armchairs and large coffee tables are the order of the day.

HOME IMPROVEMENTS

DIY EXPERT

PERIOD PERFECT

Get those jobs done with a little help from ‘Big Al; our resident DIY expert.

Period properties have enduring appeal and one of the main reasons is their original features, which add value and look lovely. However, they weren’t always so prized - many period houses and flats have had their original features removed or covered up. The good news is, you can restore them to their former glory with some time, money and effort. Similarly, if you have a modern home that lacks personality, there are plenty of ways to make it into more than a bland box. Fireplaces add character, give a room a focal point and, if they’re functional, are a practical addition to reception rooms. eBay is a great place to find fireplaces of all styles, including period and reproduction ones. While some are expensive, many can be picked up for very little money. Just as a chimney breast without a fireplace is a sorry sight, so are period properties with ugly plastic windows. Lots of people like UPVC windows because they’re double-glazed and low-maintenance, but some styles are more attractive and in keeping than others.

For me, the best are UPVC sash windows, which are a good alternative to wooden sashes ifyou’re on a budget, as they’re much cheaper. If you have more to spend, or your choice is restricted by planning laws, wooden windows are a beautiful and environmentally friendly alternative (visit: www. woodwindowalliance.com, for information), and metal windows are growing in popularity for domestic use. The style of the windows can make a big difference to the character of your home and while changing them is a considerable investment, it’s worth doing if you can, especially if it means making your home more energy efficient in the process. Replacing ugly or dated exterior doors can also make a big difference to your home’s appearance. Wooden doors come in a huge range of styles and as long as you pick one that suits your home, it shouldn’t date. If you can’t afford new exterior doors, interior doors are generally much cheaper. There are, of course, period-style reproduction doors, but noth-

PRODUCT OF THE WEEK WOODEN DOOR STICKING? The Stanley FatMax FME630K 750W Planer (£89.99, Argos) will sort it out in no time - its tungsten-carbide-tipped blades chew through wood. Comfy and easy to use, the planer has a really long (4m) power lead and comes with a dust bag that can be attached to the left or right side - simply flick a switch to change the direction the shavings are ejectedin - depending on how you’re working. An impressive three-year manufacturer’s guarantee is the icing on the cake. 66

ing beats original ones, which you can find in architectural salvage yards and on eBay. Even better, if you live in area like mine, lots of people throw out Victorian doors, so they’re

there for the taking and don’t cost a penny. If the doors are in a poor state, save yourself a lot of time and effort by getting them professionally dipped and stripped, then you can

paint, wax or varnish them with minimal prep. Some of the easiest period-style features to add are ceiling roses, cornicing and dado and picture rails - there’s a big choice online and in DIY stores. With cornicing and ceiling roses, the best option for DIYers is lighter materials, such as polystyrene and polyurethane resin, which are straightforward to fit - it’s best to leave fitting plaster designs to the professionals. Period flooring, whether stone or wood, can be expensive if you’re buying reclaimed originals, but there are alternatives. Modern wooden flooring comes in many different forms, including engineered wood and bare tongue-and-groove floorboards, although it will never have the charm and character of original wooden flooring. Stone is much easier to replicate - modern encaustic tiles are very similar to Victorian ones, for example, and some companies specialise in laying them in intricate designs that match original ones. This is a fantastic way to create a stunning feature that will never go out of fashion.

HOW-TO TIP Many period fireplaces, especially Victorian ones, have intricate metal surrounds and/or inserts, which are beautiful, but tricky to paint.Using a water-based metal paint makes things easier, as it’s less likely to run and drip than (most) solvent-based paints and it dries quickly, especially at this time of year. You still need to watch out for runs and drips (go over them with an almost dry paintbrush), but you’ll get a good finish relatively quickly and easily.

FIT FOR A ROYAL

Creating a nursery for a new baby is one of the most enjoyable preparations for prospective parents, and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will undoubtedly be choosing the best that money can buy for their new little prince.

“This is a room on which people lavish a huge amount of care, attention and money, and they will often want it to match the rest of their home and style,” says Lucinda Croft, managing director of Dragons of Walton Street, which created nurseries for Princes William and Harry, as well as their cousins Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie. “Parents-to-be view a nursery as a particularly special space. After all, it’s their child’s first view of the world and a room they will probably never forget, so getting it right is incredibly important.” Princess Diana chose a pale blue Beatrix Potter design for her sons’ nursery, while Beatrice and Eugenie’s featured a Flower Fairy design and pale pink gingham. ” Nowadays, on-trend parents are

opting for a neutral palette, says Croft, and prefer to add colour and personality through accessories or hand-painted murals. She’s created a new royal-style luxury nursery, Suite Dreams, at London’s Grosvenor House Hotel, which features child-sized furnishings, as well as Dragons’ classic rush-seat chairs, a favourite among celebrities - both Samantha Cameron and Sophie Dahl had their own hand-painted creations. “Muted colours are very ‘in’ at the moment,” says Croft. “People are moving away from bright primary shades, which apparently is due to the economic downturn. “Instead, they want a quiet, peaceful sanctuary, where they can feel away from the world; particularly important as we endure stressful economic times.

Parents-to-be view a nursery as a particularly special space. After all, it’s their child’s first view of the world and a room they will probably never forget.


ROOM FOR A PRINCESS Pretty and pink is the conventional and timeless combination for a girl’s nursery. “Mothers often feel more free with a girl to create the fantasy room they dreamt of when they were little, or to recreate the style of the one they enjoyed as a small child,” says Croft. “Flower Fairies and Beatrix Potter scenes - for the walls or featuring on the furniture - are

always enduring favourites. Alternatively, some clients want a Sleeping Beauty-style room and one of the favourite pieces is our Little Duchess canopied cot. “It has French silk drapes and the upholstery is embellished with cut-glass buttons.” She advises parents to choose a fabric and to then work the rest of the room’s colour palette around it.

“It’s sensible cost-wise, as gentle shades such as ivory, cream and dove grey will still be suitable for an older child, so there’s no need for an expensive redecoration.” Croft says nurseries should be magical places where memories are created. “One cot we made was upholstered to resemble a fluffy cloud, with drapes hung with crystal droplets to replicate raindrops, and a mural of a glowing pink sunrise and sky, while murals can transform a room.” Choose from one of these four royal decor settings for your little prince or princess. A traditional setting is enhanced with period-style nursery furniture, bringing a sense of harmony to a room. “There’s an increasing desire for exquisite ornate furniture which reflects antiquity and can be passed down through the family as heirlooms, and used by future generations,” says Toks Aruoture, owner of specialist nursery company Punkin Patch.“Cribs and cots often feature lace canopies and silk drapes, which may glitter with Swarovski crystals, and elaborate bedding monogrammed with the baby’s initials or family crests. “The aim is to create a room where the baby is surrounded by luxury and beauty, ensuring their first taste of life is served on a silver spoon!

Rooms where no expense is spared are no longer the sole prerogative of celebrities. “Whatever the Duchess of Cambridge chooses in fashion sets a trend, and the same will undoubtedly be true if her nursery style is revealed,” says Aruoture. “People see the fabulous rooms created by the famous and they’re happy to invest to create their own out-of-this-world setting, which will be unforgettable. “It’s certainly not unusual for those with wealth and status to opt for the ‘wow’ factor. “Parents enjoy lavishing attention on every detail, whether it’s gold panels for the walls and a crib gilded in gold leaf, a Swarovski crystal-studded baby bath or a solid gold rocking horse.”

KEEPING UP WITH JONES

s ta l l i on estates

Jane Jones Jane Jones PR

Welcome back to my column, which takes a topical look into what’s really creating a buzz in our area. It’s all about what the locals are talking about, and, seeing as I like to say it as it is, and have an opinion on most things under the sun – of which we’ve had rather a lot recently – you can bet it will be fairly lively. First, a two-wheeled bugbear. Having been given the green light to blaze their trail along the prom, the cyclists are certainly making the most of it. It is shocking, and darned inconsiderate, the way they tear along the concrete as soon as that 6pm curfew lifts; and goodness help anyone in their path. The loathed Imax may be gone, but it’s still leaving its mark as the area still looks like a building site. Mind you, even that’s an improvement on what was Britain’s ugliest eyesore. Yet . . . dare I ask, isn’t the new site still rather high? Years ago I worked at the Royal Bath and loved the open vista overlooking the bay when I returned to my West Cliff flat. An unrivalled view and simply breath-taking. The main topic we’ve been banging on about is the hot weather and the media is full of ‘what a scorcher!’ headlines. News that Bournemouth was hotter than the continent most days is all very well for bolstering tourism and improving the economy, but there is one big problem - our roads. The network went into meltdown and people suffered hellish delays. One family I know left the beach after a lovely day, only to have it ruined by the fact that it took five hours to get back to Basingstoke! Talking about boosting the town’s economy, Real Madrid must have helped bring in some wonga when they flew in and out of town with a short stay at a prestigious local hotel. According to my source the Spanish superstars demanded six hours of exclusivity before the match and there was no sign of any players just plenty of armed security patrolling the car park. Oh, and crowds of locals keen to get a glimpse of one of the legendary players. It was so busy at one point it looked like the match was happening at Sandbanks not Kings Park! Well done Eddie Mitchell for pulling this off. And so to the return of the Travellers, who I have been reliably told did not need to use bolt cutters to get from Baiter to Whitecliff, as the bollards, conveniently, weren’t locked! So, having gone to the trouble of moving them from Baiter, the council then enabled them to cruise to their next chosen spot without a blip. You couldn’t make it up. Finally and to conclude- rubbish! After praising Brighton a couple of weeks ago I now feel a bit daft as the very same day that House Magazine appeared there was a rash of national publicity about the vast amount of rubbish and glass left on Brighton beach thanks to our aforementioned heatwave. Recently I witnessed a family, who after picnicking on the beautiful beach at Lulworth, simply left behind an array of bottles and plastic containers for somebody else to clear up. Why are we Brits so rubbish at, well, rubbish? Is it really so hard to take it home? Why do people thoughtlessly litter the landscape and beaches they use, when they would be horrified if someone dumped as much as a sweet wrapper in their private garden? Perhaps this is something we’ve just not clamped down on properly until now? Blame, in part, has to be down to the supermarkets as there is no need to package our food in the excessive way they continue to do. But that’s a subject for another time… Talking of supermarkets, Tesco Express at Sandbanks is very busy - are we really surprised?!

CURB YOUR SUMMER CLOTHES CRAVINGS After months of chilly weather, we can finally cast off our winter jumpers and padded coats. But before rushing to splash out on a summer wardrobe to make the most of the sunshine, it’s worth keeping a cool head and thinking about ways of saving money on your purchases. New research suggests that in the next few months we will typically waste around £83 on clothing that we will only wear a few times or not at all, with men the worst culprits. T-shirts, shorts, swimwear and dresses were found to be the most common summer wardrobe mistakes, with consumers complaining that they never fitted properly in the first place or were made from poor quality fabrics and shrank after a couple of washes, according to a survey by retailer TK Maxx. Fortunately, there are some simple things you can do in order to avoid ending up with a wardrobe full of badly-fitting bikinis and garish Hawaiian shirts. One the best ways of avoiding a clothing disaster is to get in the right frame of mind to resist impulse buying in the first place and save yourself some money.

People are often thought to be more susceptible to making a poor purchasing decision when they are hungry, so eating a good meal before going on a shopping trip could help to avoid a spur-ofthe-moment disaster. Another tactic to avoid temptation is to become more organised. Make a list of what you actually need for a holiday or other special summer event, and set aside a budget to stick to.

INVEST IN A BUY-TO-LET PROPERTY? Interest in the buy-to-let market has been on the up at a time when savings rates are poor and borrowing is cheap amid the low interest rate environment. The Council of Mortgage Lenders recently reported that £4.2 billion worth of buy-to-let mortgages were advanced in the first three months of 2013, showing a 14% year-on-year increase. Investing in a buy-to-let property is one way of helping to boost a pension, especially at a time when many people are finding they are not getting the retirement income they had hoped. Strong demand in the private rental sector from tenants who have struggled to get onto the property ladder has pushed up rents - and the potential returns for landlords.

Pet insurers are paying out more than £1.2 million every day to cat and dog owners, according to new figures. The total bill for the treatment of sick or injured cats and dogs came to £452 million last year, the Association of British Insurers (ABI) said. The average medical bill for treating ill or injured pets is now over £300, according to the ABI. Some more complex treatments, such as hip dysplasia, cost more than £4,000. One vet’s bill came to £1,500 for a dog which had swallowed a marker pen.

SUMMER BREAKS.

LAUSANNE, SWITZERLAND Best for... scenic surrounds Every night, on the hours between 10pm and 2am, a town crier can be heard calling the time and confirming ‘all is well’ from the steps of Lausanne’s gothic cathedral. It’s a tradition that’s lasted since 1405, and is unique in modern day Europe. It’s true, the Swiss are sticklers for order and efficiency, only these days they tend to prefer the more expensive time pieces by the likes of Rolex or Breitling. In reality though, there’s little need for clock-watching in this lively university city overlooking Lake Geneva. During the summer, concerts and parades fill the streets, with various activities stretching from day to night. Young people gather in the parks surrounding fine art museum 100

Foundation d’Hermitage, or sunbathe on the grassy banks of one of the largest lakes in Western Europe. In the evenings, the busy bars and clubs of the Flon district are charged with energy. There are numerous sights to discover, including the Olympic Museum which contains more than 10,000 pieces of sports memorabilia, but it’s the city’s natural beauty that really captures imagination. Framed by craggy Alpine ranges, which disappear into a haze, Lake Geneva is as blue as the cloudless sky. Travelling by paddlewheel steamers across the water, it’s possible to visit the south-facing terraces of the Unesco-protected Lavaux vineyards, used by Benedictine monks in the 11th century.

To sample wines, stop at the Domaine du Daley (visit by appointment), where 20 Grand Crus are produced. Fashion designer Coco Chanel lived out the final years of her life in Lausanne, and her body rests at the Bois de Vaux cemetery. A woman of fine taste, it’s easy to see why she felt so at home here. For more information, visit: www.lausanne-tourisme.ch


MARTINHAL BEACH RESORT, PORTUGAL Best for... families It’s hard to find a holiday that’s as relaxing for the parents as it is for the kids, but Martinhal Beach Resort & Hotel might just have got it right. Kids’ clubs, swimming pools, sports facilities, spa, play areas and great restaurants so far, so Centre Parcs. But add a beach that’s a hop, skip and a jump away and the climate of the Western Algarve, and suddenly this luxury family resort seems ever-tempting. And the food really shouldn’t be overlooked. Families generally have to put up with all-inclusive-style, bog standard buffets, but at Martinhal, all the restaurants are family friendly and offer a choice of Italian, Portuguese (which is delicious) and fine dining. And when the little ones have finished munch-

ing, they can skip over to the supervised play corner while Mum and Dad sit back and enjoy a meal and couple of glasses of wine in peace. Or for those who find dining out with children a bit much, there’s always the self-catering option. There’s a wide choice of places to stay, from hotel rooms and suites to houses and villas, with or without their own private pools. Everything in the resort looks and feels as fresh as it is, having only opened a few years ago, and is all within walking distance. It’s also worth a quick jaunt into the local town of Sagres for a spot of dolphin watching. And even if Flipper fails to show up, the speedy zip through the ocean is great fun for all the family.

Seven nights B&B from £3,145 per family including international flights & transfers. To make a booking contact Bailey Robinson: 01488 689700 or www.baileyrobinson.com

TRAVEL

REGINA HOTEL BAGLIONI, ROME, ITALY Best for... sights

A night at the splendid Regina Hotel Baglioni, in Rome’s ultra cool Via Veneto, is something special. Built between 1892 and 1894, the extravagant former home of Queen Margherita of Savoy offers five-star luxury all the way. The rooms are vast, while some suites have private terraces with Jacuzzis. Breakfast is a sophisticated affair served in an ornate cafe with a fabulous mantelpiece, large Murano glass chandelier and grand oil paintings. Ideal preparation for sightseeing. Via Veneto is ideally placed for many of Rome’s best known attractions with the Villa Borghese Gardens, Trevi Fountain, Pantheon and Opera House all within a 10-minute walk. World-class shopping at the Piazza di Spagna or the 102

Via Condotti is also close by, though - depending on your budget - you may need a lift back with your bags. The hotel is home to the Brunello Lounge & Restaurant, but if you fancy venturing further afield, try the Aroma rooftop restaurant at the Palazzo Manfredi hotel (www.hotelpalazzomanfredi. it). Its ‘wow factor’ location, overlooking the magnificent Colosseum, is good enough reason to visit, but the food is sensational too. The seven-course tasting menu is described by chef Giuseppe Di Iorio as “taking you on a journey through his unique vision of Italian cuisine to both stimulate and satisfy your senses”. At 195 euros (£150) a head, it’s certainly not cheap, but it’s a truly memorable experience.

Doubles from £238 per night with breakfast (www.baglionihotels.com) EasyJet fly to Rome from £55 return (www.easyjet.com)


TRAVEL EXPERT Moreno Intranova The Luxury Travel Planner SERVIC

E FREE OF CHARGE

HOUSE Magazine travel expert Moreno Intranova from ‘The Luxury Travel Planner’ talks about luxury cruise holidays & river cruising in some of Europe’s finest & picturesque settings. . Moreno has been in the luxury travel industry for over 18 years and has looked after some of the biggest names in the entertainment industry including politicians and heads of major companies. He has worked for some of the finest travel companies in the world, one of which, based in Harrods.

The great attraction about a luxury cruise holiday for me is that it resembles a floating 5 star hotel and takes you on a journey visiting desirable ports in historical cities & charming towns. In my view it provides great value for money and you meet like minded fellow travellers. My first luxury cruising experience was on board the Silversea Explorer. Silversea Expeditions give adventure seekers with discerning taste rare access to the world’s most remote and remarkable destinations. As one of 132 guests, it provides an all-inclusive indulgent experience, accommodations with ocean views and butler service, superb dining and complimentary excursions. These are guided by expert naturalists and groups are kept quite small in order to provide an intimate experience. One of my favourite cruise experiences is Oceania Cruises, elegant ships offering unique itineraries specifically designed to showcase the most fascinating destinations across the globe. Their ships are mid sized with a country club-casual ambience, open dining offering exquisite cuisine and impeccable service to match.

BARCELO FORMENTOR, MALLORCA Best for... a romantic hideaway Shrouded by Mediterranean forest in the very northern tip of Mallorca, it’s little wonder Winston Churchill sought solace in this five-star hotel. The rumblings of World War II would have seemed a world away as he sat puffing on a cigar and looking out across the beautiful bay. He’s not the only famous face who’s graced this luxurious hideaway. Grace Kelly and Prince Rainier even chose the hotel as their honeymoon destination, and their suite, one of the 122 rooms that have either a sea or mountain view, is named in the actress’s honour. A 50-minute drive from Palma airport, along the eye-poppingly high and winding roads of Cap de Formentor, the hotel’s remote location is one of its main draws. Flanked by palm trees and manicured gardens,

the low-rise building, which opened in 1929, oozes oldschool glamour. Days can be spent by the pool, on the beach, or sampling excellent seafood in a selection of eateries, some located right on the seafront. Afterwards, take a stool at the small bar that opens out onto a patio, and rest cocktail glasses on the original green and white tiles that lie protected beneath glass. Finish off an evening with a game of billiards on the table often used by Churchill, before contentedly retiring at a respectable hour. It may not be a place to embark on a raucous night out, but if you’re looking for a romantic and peaceful shorthaul retreat, you’d be hardpushed to find somewhere as stylish, or as steeped in history.

Doubles from £170 per night with breakfast. www.barcelo.com Monarch fly to Mallorca from £85.50 return. www.monarch. co.uk

For those that are looking for a more intimate cruising experience, I would suggest looking into a European River cruise, which is an absolutely fantastic way to discover some of the most beautiful parts of Europe, inaccessible by large cruise ships, allowing you to submerse yourself in the local culture, within a short stroll of where the vessel docks or a coach ride away. A few years ago, I took a trip on the delightful S.S Antoinette, one of the elegant vessels in the Uniworld fleet from Basel in Switzerland to Amsterdam. The experience on board was equally memorable with excellent service and outstanding cuisine. I felt very much part of history walking along cobbled streets and stepping back in time visiting castles and old town villages. The guides were extremely knowledgeable and their passion were easily felt. I’d definitely consider another river cruise, perhaps next time on the Danube.

EXCLUSIVE BUSINESS LUNCH To celebrate the launch, I am holding an exclusive lunch event which is sponsored by Oceania Cruises & Travel 2 at The Hotel Cumberland in Bournemouth on the 6th September 2013 between 12:00 and 15:30. Come along to a Champagne Reception, presentations by the official sponsors, a sumptuous 2 course lunch, exclusive discounts on the day and a prize draw. Tickets are available at £28.95 per person and can be obtained by calling Moreno Intranova on 07803 409878 or email: moreno.intranova@independenttravelexperts.co.uk

ASK THE PROPERTY EXPERT LEASE EXTENTION QUERY We own a property we have been renting out for 15 years. We have recently been thinking of selling it but a friend of ours highlighted that we may have a problem as there are only 68 years remaining on the lease. Is this true and what can we do? First of all, your friend is right to highlight this to you, as sales have been known to fall through due to the time and costs related to extending leases on Leasehold Properties, it can also cause problems when re-mortgaging too, in fact, most Mortgage companies will not allow a mortgage on properties with a lease of less than 70 years. What a lot of people don’t realise is if you were to never extend your lease and allow it to come to an end, the Freeholder is under no obligation to negotiate, turning you into an assured tenant and no longer an owner! If a lease has already been extended by somebody else in the block, the Freeholder may not require a valuation or solicitor to validate the Claim, which would be good news for you as this will save some costs and I would suggest you make enquiries down this route first. If you are the first to extend the lease then you would need to send a S42 Claim to the Freeholder who would then forward it to their solicitors to validate it, order a valuation survey and a S45 counter notice. Usually the Freeholders costs are payable by the Leaseholder. The method of calculating the cost for adding a 90 year extension to an existing lease under 80 years includes payment of “marriage value” equal to half of the price gain after the lease extension. You normally expect to get a better price on property with leases over 80 years remaining if the buyer can get a mortgage whereas for leases below 70 years, it means a cash buyer only. For example if the property price increases by 10K ,£207,000 then you are required POOLE QUARTER to share this gain with the freeholder ,then 5K will go to the freeholder. A lovely bright and spacious first The process is one that would need expert advice and be prepared for high costs. I have floor two bedroom apartment known leases to cost between £5000 andlocated as high asever £20,0000 for an extension. Processes can in the popular Poole take anything from 4 months to 18 months, hence friends this to you now Quarter offeredyour with vacant poshighlighting session available. has been good advice.

Insignia Blinds HOUSE Half page 273mm x 92.5mm July 2013 #69

Hasn’t the weather been gorgeous recently? Of course not long back we experienced the coldest April for fifty years and there’s no denying the fact that the weather has a massive impact on our moods. But I’m a great believer in the pendulum effect. What I mean by this is that, in nature, conditions often veer from one extreme to another but in between these polar opposites are periods of equilibrium. This is why I said to my fiancée Meagan, “I bet we’ll have a hot summer”. Then low and behold, a few weeks back weather forecasters at the Met Office predicted a warmer July than average. Having said that, forecasts predicting nice weather are often a guarantee of a downpour so I won’t hold my breath (which I very rarely do anyway, as its not beneficial to my health). The weather was so nice this week that my parents drove down from the south Wales valleys to join our little clan on a little trip to the beach in Sandbanks. I have a theory why we do this and by “we” I don’t just mean my family but why the beach was full of similar minded people all of differing shapes and sizes this week. O.k. you could point to that big ball of fire in the sky and say, “that’s why the beach is full” but I have another theory and a story that broke this week backs up that theory. The story is about a lady called, Sarah Litchfield and her property entitled, Number 305 Mudeford Spit. It’s a beach hut near Christchurch in Dorset which is on the market for £200,000. This works out at £1,000 per sq ft, one of the most expensive pieces of property you can buy outside Mayfair. Recently an estate agent compared the value of a waterside property with the value of the same property five miles inland. In the south of England it’s 66% more expensive. There was also another recent study that found people who lived near the coast are happier and healthier than their inland counterparts. Why as humans are we mysteriously drawn to the sea? Why on a nice day is the promenade full of people of a certain age staring zombie like, almost longingly, at the watery horizon? Why do great bodies of water have a calming effect on us? It’s the same reason Salmon risk life and limb (or gill) swimming 1000’s miles to return to their place of home to breed. We’re related. We all came from the sea and we also spent the first nine months of our lives in liquid. So staring at it, wanting to be near it or in it is almost as natural for us as natural for us as it is fish. At the beach recently I felt so at one in my coastal environment I decided it only appropriate to stuff my face with a bag of fish and chips (o.k. maybe the potato isn’t a natural sea dweller but you get my drift or tide). Talking about Salmon, I was idiotic enough not to wear any sun block on my day out at the beach. So by the evening I was doing a very good impression of a Salmon, in colour that is not smell.

OUTDOOR LIVING

WHETHER WEATHER IS IMPORTANT TO YOU IT DOESN’T MATTER?

The B200 Outdoor Living® concept is new from Broadview. Enjoy relaxing in your garden all year round with the flexibility of a covered or uncovered outside space you decide. You may want to cover your hot tub or entertain friends by evening in a pleasant ambient atmosphere that a B200 Outdoor Living® system will provide. The B200 Outdoor Living ®provides shelter and can cover small to very large areas thanks to its modular designed frame allowing an unlimited amount of systems to be coupled together side by side. B200 also has a unique louvred open and close slatted roof tilting system so at the touch of a button it can be a waterproof and solid roof one minute, yet completely open the next. Likewise the optional remote control side screens will roll down or up to enclose you fully, partially or to leave

you open to the elements according to the weather as you wish. Even sun and rain sensors can automate this for you. Because there is no glass there is also no cleaning required or the worry of a fallen roof tile or tree debris falling and damaging it. Optional LED light strips can integrate into the aluminium roof slats for evening use along with heaters meaning you are kept warm and dry and even free from insect bites. Installing is really quite simple and our expert team will undertake the whole process for you from start to finish. You may want your B200 to be free standing away from the house or perhaps connected to your house wall, such is the flexibility of the B200 framework that multiple fixation methods allow installation to be quite simple and a complete installation is completed usually in a single day.

OUTDOOR LIVING

EXTENDING YOUR LIVING SPACE OUTDOORS The garden has become very much an extension of our homes and should work as another room. At Kingspace we view the garden as what is usually the largest room people own.

GLASS HOUSES & CONSERVATORIES A contemporary take on an outbuilding could be one of our elegant German-engineered glass houses or conservatories. The rooms are manufactured at the Weinor factory in Germany and made to the exact millimetre for every customer. These all-glass and aluminium structures offer you protection from the elements and unbroken views of the rest of the garden. Also, in the heat of summer you can slide back all of the doors to give you an open and cool covered area. Fitted prices start from around ÂŁ10,000 142


BBQ LODGES

Homeowners spend a great deal of time making their garden look good which makes it even more important to be able to enjoy it all year round. We, sadly, can’t rely on the weather in Britain and so to extend the amount of time you can spend in your garden an outbuilding can be a great solution. If properly done, as well as increasing the usability of your garden, a good outbuilding can actually add to the value of your home. The old adage:

There are some great products and alternative structures now on the market which can really boost the usability of your garden. A favourite at Kingspace is our beautiful BBQ Lodges. These six-sided huts seat 15 and originate in Scandinavia. With the central BBQ pit these lodges are perfect for the inconsistencies of the British weather and even better during the winter months. Prices start from under £5,000, fitted.

“Don’t move, improve” is as relevant to your outdoor space as it is to the interior. Before committing to an outbuilding project there are a number of factors to consider:

What is it you actually like to do outside? Should your outbuilding be a space in which to simply relax and unwind? Are you a lover of hosting al-fresco dinner parties? Do you want to cook in an outdoor kitchen? Or is your outdoor room to be used as a workspace away from the home environment?

Whatever the use of your outbuilding some considerations apply to all projects. Firstly do you need planning? Many of the planning laws have been relaxed or altered in recent years, but you should still check with your local authority before going too far along the journey. The outbuildings mini-guide within the online planning portal is a great start to make the basic checks. As with many building projects location is key. Think of things like access to utilities (water, electricity, gas and internet). What views you would like to enjoy from your outdoor room? Where does the sun appear at different times of day and during the year? The last thing you want is a room that is too dingy from lack of light or too hot from persistent sunshine. Do you want a room that is easy to assemble as a kit or would you prefer something more bespoke in nature?

TIP: Think of your budget and what sort of investment you are prepared to make to create something which covers all your needs.

Most importantly, ask an expert if you are at all unsure of any aspects of the build. We often find people can struggle to imagine how the finished project would look; at Kingspace we help our customers with free garden designs and can create free 3D CAD visuals to see what a building would look like in situ. By the time you are on site constructing a building it can often be too late to make major changes to the layout of the structure which could end up looking awful and spoiling whatever pleasure it should afford you.

OUTDOOR LIVING CEDAR CLAD GARDEN STUDIO Alternatively for a bespoke work area or party room a Cedar Clad garden studio could fit the bill, with bi-fold doors that open up on the warmest of days and full insulation to keep you warm in the dead of winter. You can really customise these rooms to your own bespoke requirements, with under floor heating, different finishes and even a living green-roof option. A 20m2 garden studio could cost around ÂŁ17,000, but adds real value to a property and rarely needs planning permission.

GLASS HOUSES & CONSERVATORIES Fitted prices start from around ÂŁ10,000

All buildings, advice, visuals and plans are available from Kingspace Ltd, by Longham Bridge in Bournemouth. They can manage the whole project from planning to completion. 01202 576123 admin@kingspace.co.uk www.kingspace.co.uk

HEALTH & BEAUTY

SUMMER IS TAKING SHAPE The summer sun may be only be starting to filter through, but it can still rapidly trigger that distressing annual condition; ‘body-image melt-down’.

WELLBEING It’s symptoms are easy to spot - rising panic as you face the thought of revealing summer clothes and stripping off for the beach, followed by a flurry of activity at the gym which you haven’t visited since you took out the membership full of optimism in January. There’s also an uncomfortable, dawning reality that the ‘oh all right, just one more then’ nutrition and alcohol strategy may not have been the wisest one. But is this the time to admit defeat and avoid all sun, sea and sand? Or to embark on a starvation diet? No way, says Sarah-Jane Holt, personal trainer at a Matt Roberts training centre. “This is a great time of year to evaluate your health and set yourself some targets and you’re guaranteed to feel better for it. “There’s still time to turn yourself around and getting ‘summer ready fast’ is one of the most common aims of our clients in July. It can definitely be done.” While it is natural to focus on our body’s perceived defects, it is far better to concentrate on exercise performance goals and improving nutrition instead, she advises.

“Regular exercise and eating better will have a holistic effect, as you’ll get a feeling of personal satisfaction in meeting training goals, and improved nutrition will give you more energy.”

146

“That combination will make you feel good about yourself and the welcome side effects should be an improvement in muscle tone and weight and glowing skin.” Joanna Hall, movement expert and author of new book, Joanna Hall’s Walkactive Programme, agrees that the exercising effects on wellbeing will be instant, even if the cosmetic effect takes a little longer. “Just making a conscious decision to get out and be physically active regularly will improve your mood. I’d advise taking exercise - even a short walk - in the morning because research has shown that those who exercise at that time, rather than in the afternoon or evening, are 75% more likely to be continuing their routine in six months. That’s probably because our willpower and energy is more likely to lower later in the day. “Also, take exercise in a green environment like a park because research shows that has a mood lifting effect. Use warmer days to take the first step to a healthier lifestyle and the effect will last way beyond the summer.” Richard Hilliard, anxiety coach, does point out that many of us have too high an expectation of this summer though. “This year, after months of disappointing weather, it’s likely that people are looking to the final dawning of summer as a huge lift fortheir spirits,” he says. “Naturally, being outside when the sun is shining and everything is fresh and green does give us a joyful ‘good to be alive feeling’.


“But it’s not the answer to all life’s problems, and while a longed-for break away can refresh it also means concentrated time with family, which can bring its own stresses.” He counsels that it’s wiser to temper expectations of ourselves and the season, and to take the opportunity over the next few months to gradually adapt the pace of life to one which makes you feel more in control and allows more ‘down time’. “Your problems won’t go away, but through a revamp of your routines you may have more opportunity to feel more positive, and together with being outdoors more, you’ll end up in a better frame of mind to face up to them.” Follow the experts guide to getting summer ready, the happy and healthy way.

FAST TUMMY TONE Improve posture and flatten the tummy with an easy exercise which takes only minutes. Joanna Hall, author of new book, Joanna Hall’s Walkactive Programme says: “This is my numberone, all-round best abdominal exercise. Get it right and it works miracles. It takes four minutes 25 seconds so can be done while waiting for a kettle to boil or a laptop to start up. Do it as often as you can and it will lead to a flat abdomen and fabulous inch loss.” Stand with good posture and your weight distributed evenly on both feet. Visualise a capital letter J in front of you. The long part of the J is closest to your body and short part is furthest away. In your mind, imagine you’re tracing over the J with your abdominals. So starting at the bottom by the pubic bone, scoop out your abs and then draw them in and up towards your sternum, as if drawing up the long part of the letter J.

To help you imagine this, slide your fingertips between your waistband and your tummy. Pull your tummy muscles in and up at the same time - away from your fingers - without expanding your ribcage or tensing your back muscles. Don’t take deep breaths or hold your breath. Hold this contraction for a count of ten, then relax for ten. Repeat five to ten times. Make sure your ribcage is down - your chest shouldn’t be puffed up. Your ribs should taper down not out and your bottom should be relaxed, your back lengthened, not contracted. As you do this you are lengthening the area between you pubic bone and your breast bone, imagine these two points moving further apart: your abdominal muscles are getting longer, leaner and flatter.

COOK WITH THE COTTONWOOD Executive chef, Gary Wicker, shows us how to cook great, simple and tasty food.

As the summer is treating us kindly and there is an abundance of fresh berries about, why not steer away from the usual strawberries and cream and mix it up by making an English summer pudding, the perfect seasonal pudding to serve up at any garden party or bbq. It is light yet flavoursome and quick and simple to make, with the option to personalise with your choice of mix of berries. Another bonus with this recipe is that you don’t need to have a specific dish shape or size, try out small individual puddings for a more personal serving.

RECIPE English Summer Pudding Recipe

SERVES 6

Ingredients

Method

1. 2 tbsp of water.

1. In a saucepan stir the water and sugar together and gently bring to the boil.

2. 150g of sugar. 3. 450g of washed, mixed summer fruits to your taste (we suggest a mix of raspberries, strawberries, blackcurrants, and blackberries).

2. Add in the berries and fruits, stew very gently until softened. Put to one side to cool.

4. 100 -150g of sliced white bread, crusts removed (preferably slightly stale bread).

4. Fill with the stewed fruits, cover the top with slices of bread. Take care with the amount of juice you add as too much will make the bread lose shape, however there needs to be enough to soak through the bread.

3. Line your chosen pudding basin with the bread slices ensuring there are no gaps. Depending on the shape of your dish you may want to cut a circle of bread for the bottom.

5. Whipped cream or custard.

5. Place a saucer with a weight on top (a can of beans is ideal). Leave overnight in the fridge. 6. Before serving, turn the pudding out onto a plate.

OH WE DO LIKE TO EAT BESIDE THE SEASIDE Tucking in to a sizzling portion of fish and chips by the sea is, for many Brits, something of a summertime tradition. And with the UK spending roughly £1.2 billion on the iconic dish every year, it looks like we’re a long way from saying tartare to our love affair with the tasty tucker. Each of us scoffs an average of six portions of fish and chips a year, according to the Federation of Fish Friers, and our 10,500 specialist fish and chip shops easily outnumber the 1,200 McDonald’s outlets.

RECIPE

With the sunshine finally greeting us in good old Blighty, we can all pretend to be by the seaside by recreating some old favourites at home.

Here are three succulent summer recipes to bring the taste of the seaside to your kitchen.

SERVES 4

Fish and chips with mushy peas Ingredients Vegetable oil, for deep-frying 6 large floury potatoes, such as King Edward, Maris Piper or Desiree, cut into chips 4 thick cod filets, 175g each Flour, for dusting Salt and pepper 4 large handfuls mixed baby

Recipe from Grandma's Best Recipes by Love Food editors, published by Parragon Books, priced £16.99. Available now

leaf lettuce or oak leaf lettuce 1 shallot, finely dice

For the batter: 225g self-raising flour ½tsp salt 300ml cold lager Salt and pepper

Method To make the batter, sift the flour into a bowl with the salt and whisk in most of the lager. Check the consistency and add the remaining lager; it should be thick, like double cream. Chill in the refrigerator for half an hour. To make the mushy peas, bring a large saucepan of lightly salted water to the boil, add the peas, bring back to the boil and cook for 3 minutes. Drain and mash to a thick puree, then add the butter and cream and season to taste with salt and pepper. Set aside and keep warm while cooking the fish. Heat the oil to 120C/250F in a thermostatically controlled deep fat fryer or in a large saucepan using a thermometer. Preheat the oven to 150C/300F/Gas Mark 2. Add the chips to the oil and fry for about 8-10 minutes, until softened but not coloured. Remove from the oil, drain on kitchen paper and place in a dish in the preheated oven. Increase the temperature of the oil to 180C/350F. Season the fish to taste with salt and pepper and dust lightly with a little flour. Dip one fillet in the batter and coat thickly. Carefully place the fillet in the hot oil and repeat with the other fillets (you may need to do this in batches). Cook for 8-10 minutes, turning halfway through. Remove the fish from the oil, drain and keep warm. Reheat the oil to 180C/350F and re-cook the chips for a further 2-3 minutes until golden brown. Drain and season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve immediately with the mushy peas. 152

For the mushy peas: 350g frozen peas 30g butter Salt and pepper 2tbsp single cream


RECIPE

21st century whippy

Recipe from Ice Cream & Other Frozen Delights by Ben Vear, published by Absolute Press, priced £20. Available now.

Ingredients 500ml double cream 250ml whole milk 2tsp vanilla extract 1 leaf pectin or gelatine (20-25g) 1tsp skimmed milk powder

120g vanilla sugar or caster sugar You will also need ice cube trays containing at least 30 spaces (Makes 1 Litre)

Method In a medium saucepan, heat the double cream, milk and vanilla over a low heat and bring to a gentle simmer, stirring constantly and making sure the mixture does not boil. When it reaches the simmering point, add the pectin and stir until fully dissolved. Add the milk powder and sugar and stir until fully dissolved. At this stage you should begin to notice the mixture thickening up. If it is not thick enough to coat the back of a spoon, add a further teaspoon of sugar and heat for a few more minutes. Once the mixture has thickened adequately, pour it into a mixing bowl and set it aside to cool. Once cool, place it in the refrigerator to chill for 1 hour. Once it has chilled for an hour, whisk for 5 minutes using an electric whisk at full speed. Decant the mixture into ice cube trays and place in the freezer to set solid. Once solid, place the cubes of ice cream in a blender or food processor and blend at full speed until you have a partially frozen paste. Pour this into a piping bag and pipe onto cones.

RECIPE

SERVES 6

Pea, root and sage pasties Ingredients 250g butter, chilled and diced 500g plain flour Sea salt 1 egg, beaten 4tbsp iced water 1 egg, to glaze

For the filling: 2 medium potatoes, peeled and cut into small chunks

150g peeled swede, cut into small chunks 150g peeled carrot, cut into small chunks 2tbsp rapeseed oil 300g frozen peas, thawed 16 sage leaves, roughly chopped ½ an onion, peeled and chopped 2tbsp cream cheese Sea salt and black pepper

Recipe from the Yes Peas! campaign to encourage Brits to eat more frozen peas. Visit: www.peas.org for more information.

Method Preheat the oven to 200°C/Gas Mark 7. Rub the butter into the flour with a pinch of salt using your fingertips, blend in the egg and four tablespoons of water to produce a firm dough. Divide the dough into four, wrap in cling film and chill for 30 minutes. For the filling, place the potato, swede and carrot onto a baking sheet, drizzle with rapeseed oil and season with sea salt and black pepper and roast for 8 minutes in the oven until soft. Place the vegetables including the peas into a bowl and gently stir in the sage leaves and onion and bind the mixture together with cream cheese. Roll out each piece of dough on a lightly floured surface, until large enough to make a round of approximately 23cm across. Take a spoonful of the vegetable mixture and place in the centre of each round, leaving a margin at the edge. Brush the pastry around the edge with the beaten egg and carefully draw the edges together to form a seam across the top, pinch together to seal. Repeat with the remaining dough. Place the pasties on a baking tray, glaze with egg and bake for 10 minutes. Then reduce the oven temperature to 170C/Gas Mark 4 and cook for a further 30 minutes until golden. If the pasties are cooking too quickly, turn the oven down slightly. 153

L-DRIVERS ON MOTORWAYS Young drivers must be allowed to gain early motorway driving experience, according to road safety charity the Institute of Advanced Motorists. With a green paper on learning to drive due to be published later this month, the IAM are calling on the government to ensure that any new system includes allowing supervised L drivers onto our motorways. Allowing supervised learner drivers on the motorway would help them avoid some of the most common mistakes e.g. driving too close, centre lane hogging. Few drivers on the motorway today have had any training on how to use them; they learn by building experience from their mistakes & this is far from ideal, says the IAM. Chief executive Simon Best said: “Human error is the main contributory factor in 71% of injury crashes on motorways and surveys suggest drivers often lack confidence on motorway use. This measure, plus refresher and modular courses on motorway driving should be encouraged to help everyone use them from a position of knowledge and confidence. The outcome should be fewer incidents, fewer injuries and fewer delays.”

DACIA DUSTER ROAD TEST A smart stylish crossover SUV model for under £9,000? Who am I kidding! Well, no one, actually! Step forward the Dacia Duster, which offers staggering value for money and which the manufacturer describes as ‘shockingly affordable’. Now I know what you’re thinking - who or what is Dacia? It is a brand which is now part of the giant Renault group, and its models use proven Renault engines and other parts. Dacia now offers several models in the UK but the Duster is the one that grabs the attention. It is the size of a Nissan Qashqai, but thousands of pounds cheaper, with prices starting at just £8,995. OK, for that price you get a two-wheel drive version with minimal kit, but visually it looks much the same as the top-spec Duster Laureate models, which top out at £14,995.

For that you get air-con, alloy wheels, front and side airbags, anti-lock brakes, selectable 4WD, remote locking, power front windows, 6-function computer, radio/ CD/MP3, Bluetooth and a USB port among standard kit. While entry-level Dusters use a 1.6-litre petrol engine for the 2WD version, the 4WD models use a Renault-sourced 1.5 litre diesel unit which offers 53.3mpg combined, top speed of 104 mph and a 0-60 mph time of 12.5 seconds. It is a very good engine, offering 109 hp, pulls smoothly and is mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox. Out and about, the Duster drives well, with decent handling and a comfortable ride. It is not as refined as a Qashqai or other mainstream rivals, nor does it have the same level of safety features or trim quality, but it isn’t the same price either. The Duster may be budget price, but it

has an expensive appearance! Most people I met while driving around 600 miles in a busy week thought the Duster would be at least £20,000. When I said they could get a version for £9,000, their jaws dropped! It is spacious inside, with good head and leg room even in the rear, with comfortable seating and good visibility. The boot offers 475 litres, boosted to 1,636 litres if the rear seats are folded. The cabin is user-friendly, with well-placed switchgear and easyread dials. You can run in 2WD or 4WD by turning a simple rotary switch. Overall it is difficult to resist this stylish crossover newcomer. It looks great, drives well, and has the reassurance of being part of the Renault group. Nothing else currently on the market comes even close for the price, so when it comes to sales, the Duster is certainly going to clean up!

LEXUS ADVANCED OPTION Lexus is giving its new IS customers the opportunity to add a suite of advanced safety features and driving aids to their vehicle with an additional option pack. Available exclusively for the flagship Premier versions of the new IS 250 and full hybrid IS 300h, the pack; a build-toorder option priced £1,540, provides four additional systems: Pre-Crash Safety system, Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Departure Assist Automatic High Beam. The PCS system uses a millimetrewave radar sensor that operates over a 20-degree scanning radius to detect obstacles in the vehicle’s path. The Adaptive Cruise Control works in two 154

modes: constant speed control and vehicle-to-vehicle distance control. The Lane Departure Alert system monitors road markings using a camera mounted on the rear-view mirror. If the vehicle is deviating from its lane without the turn signals being used, it alerts the driver with a buzzer and shows a warning on the instrument display. The Automatic High Beam function for the headlamps maximises night-time visibility by automatically switching to low beam when the system’s camera detects the lights of an oncoming vehicle, or one travelling ahead.

BRIGHT INTERIORS

156

Colour’s cool for homes right now, and stamping your style on rooms with bright shades is an easy way to welcome summer. “Bold is back! Colour accents should be surprising and tantalising this year,” says Nicky Pysden at DecorateNow, specialists in paint, wallpaper and decorating accessories. “Use colour where you least expect it, to accentuate and highlight features in a room. This trend plays with shapes, light and shadow to create an interesting mix of shades. “Colour’s coming from everywhere as the nation gets bold with

teal, yellow, lime green and rosebud pink.” If you’re used to a more neutral world and it all feels a bit scary, dip your toe into vivid decor by experimenting with what interior designers call ‘pops’ of colour.

A collection of spray-painted vases, jars or old milk bottles can bring life to a dull corner. Pick sunny shades, such as Orange Gloss, Pink Burst Gloss, Bright Red Gloss from the Plasti-Kote’s Twist & Spray colour range, £8.79 for a 400ml can. www.plastikote.com


PUNCHY PINK Jazz up a wall with train line-inspired Coloured Luggage Racks from London Transport Museum. They start from £150 for a small rack and its Coloured Trunks start from £62 each. www.ltmuseumshop.co.uk

Homes should be filled with colour, says Charlotte Hedeman Gueniau, author of Happy Home: Everyday Magic For A Colorful Life (Jacqui Small, £25), which is an inspiring guide to experimenting with colour and pattern. “There’s usually a shade of pink involved in my top five colours. Sometimes a soft, romantic shade and at the moment a more hysterical, energetic fluorescent tone of neon,” “Coloured walls are one of my darlings. Just one wall can really make a huge difference in a room.‘Just do it’ - don’t take it too seriously, because, with another tin of paint, you can change it quickly if you get sick of it all.” she says.

Functional items needn’t blend into the background. Be brave with this vibrant Pink Parquet Shade, £36, from Hunkydory Home. www.hunkydoryhome.co.uk

ORANGE AID Orange is a cheery colour and keys in well to a modern interior, or one focusing on turnback-the-clock retro style. Interior designer Abigail Ahern highlights burnt orange as her favourite shade. “This season, stronger colours are taking centre stage and burnt orange is the star.” she says.

Funky, orange accessories could transform a room. Follow the fruity theme with Citrus Slices Wall Stickers, £30 from Red Candy. www.redcandy.co.uk

WHAT’S ON

THURSDAY’S TO SUNDAY’S THE COTTONWOOD BOUTIQUE HOTEL

WHAT’S ON...

Up to 2000 bike enthusiasts roar into town every Tuesday night from April until the end of September, turning Poole Quay into a fabulous bike show. Join enthusiasts and spectators for a great atmosphere.

Supporting local musical talent is something that The Cottonwood Boutique Hotel strongly believes in. That is why we are pleased to let you know that every Thursday to Sunday you will find live music from artists in and around Dorset, Hampshire, Devon and Wiltshire. No matter what you are in the mood for, you will find a day and a style that suits you and your family. With stunning views of the sea and only minutes from the Lansdowne and town centre, The Cottonwood Boutique Hotel is the place to be to wind down from the stressful week at work. So come along maybe have a glass of bubbly, a beer and something to eat and listen to great songs from a great artist while sat in our funky bar.

Poole Quay www.pooletourism.com

The Cottonwood Hotel thecottonwoodboutique.co.uk

A brilliant selection of events happening across Dorset & Hampshire over the coming weeks..

7TH - 8TH SEPTEMBER PARTY IN THE PARK Party in the Park was established in 2001 and each year the event has been running it has grown from strength to strength playing a vital role in bringing the local community in and around Poole together. The team at JJ PR & Events are excited to announce that this year will be the first year it will be running over two days, with more coverage and exposure than ever before. The event is a family event filled with fun and laughter with an opportunity to wine and dine at your leisure and sit back and listen to the sounds of local talented bands. The day also gives a chance to help raise money for a local charity. The local charity chosen this year is Wessex Cancer Trust. This charity provides relief for people suffering from cancer, helps support research into the disease and helps to advance education into its causes, prevention and treatment. Karen Rhys, from Wessex Cancer Trust said, ‘We are absolutely delighted to be nominated the chosen charity for this year’s Party in the Park and we look forward to seeing you all at this hugely popular event. Tickets on sale from Friday 21st June 2013.

FROM 31ST JULY CANDLELIGHT NIGHTS

EVERY THURSDAY 6PM SUMMER BREEZE Starting on 25 July and running every Thursday evening in August from 7pm, the Breeze Volkswagen sponsored Summer Breeze on the Quay will provide live music, street entertainment and family fun followed by spectacular fireworks over Poole Harbour. Bruce GrantBraham, Chairman of Poole Tourism Partnership, said: “Whilst Summer Breeze on

the Beach has been really popular, the local businesses that support the events and pay for the fireworks wanted to concentrate Summer Breeze on Poole Quay over the main summer holiday period. After talking to partners, Poole Tourism Partnership took the decision to focus the event at the time and location that provides the most economic impact for the town. Our aim in putting on special events is always to provide interest and

entertainment for visitors and residents to enjoy whilst benefitting the local tourism and hospitality business that invest in the town.”

Once again, Bournemouth’s award-winning Lower Gardens will be illuminated by hundreds of tea lights. From dusk (approx 8pm) join in with the lighting of thousands of candles in coloured glass jars to see the Lower Gardens transformed into a magical candleit kingdom in one of Bournemouth’s oldest and most enduring traditions. PLUS Fire zone, Music Zone, Family Zone and Hritage Zone including great music and street entertainment. Tapers available from the crazy golf kiosk and the Bandstand.
