CAPITAL & COASTAL BECOME AN APPROVED TRADER WITH THE CONSUMER CODE APPROVAL SCHEME As a member of the UK’s largest property ombudsman scheme, Capital and Coastal is one of 11,745 residential sales agents that have signed up to TPO’s Sales Code of Practice. The Property Ombudsman (TPO) has now become the first property organisation to have a Code of Practice approved by The Trading Standard Institute (TSI) under their Consumer Code Approval Scheme. More than 95 percent of the residential sales market is signed up to TPO’s Sales Code of Practice and redress service, which is a free, independent and impartial dispute resolution service for consumers. This news means all home owners and buyers using Capital and Coastal across the coastline from Poole to Christchurch are all covered by TPO’s Sales Code

of Practice. Capital and Coastal is now listed on TSI’s online directory of approved traders. Consumers will be able to look for TPO sales agents through TSI’s dedicated database on www.tradingstandards.gov.uk and through the Citizens Advice Bureau’s website, to find a member of an approved code in their area. TPO sales agents will now be able to display the TSI Approved Code logo in their advertising, offices and within company literature. Confirming the news, Property Ombudsman Christopher Hamer said: “I am delighted that TPO has become the largest organisation to win approval from TSI for its Consumer Code Approval Scheme. The TPO Code is a recognised set of standards throughout the industry but it is important that it is

also seen as being independently approved by a credible organisation. “With the OFT’s withdrawal from the code approval process it is good news that TSI have stepped in to fulfil the important role of rigorous examination and approval for consumerfocussed codes.” Mr Hamer added: “This news means that agents who are members of TPO actively offer the highest level of consumer protection for buyers and sellers. We are in active discussions with TSI to achieve scheme approval for the Lettings Code of Practice.” Michael Riley, Director of Capital and Coastal said: “This is a pleasing progression toward stricter controls in estate agency, which we whole heartedly support.” Citizens Advice Chief Executive Gillian Guy said: “We deal with over

a million consumer problems each year and know how difficult it is for people to find a seller they can trust, the Approved Trader Scheme will help to combat this.” TPO is among the first trade bodies sponsoring the new code and has also become the largest organisation to be accredited by the scheme since it replaced the Office of Fair Trading’s scheme earlier this year. There are now 26,530 approved traders signed up to one of the ten codes of practice. TPO joins: British Association of Removers, British Healthcare Trades Association, Debt Managers Standards Association, Institute of Professional Will Writers, Motor Codes Ltd, Renewable Energy Assurance Ltd, Robert Bosch Ltd, The Carpet Foundation and Vehicle Builders Repairers Association Ltd.

ROYAL ARCADE BOSCOMBE, A PHOENIX RISING? Cherry Mortgage & Finance Ltd are delighted to have assisted local developer Graham Warren of GWP with raising finance to enable the purchase of multiple commercial units for conversion to residential dwellings at the Royal Arcade in Boscombe. The redevelopment of the site is due to start later this year with 30 high-quality apartments being planned for sale in the next 12 – 18 months. Graham Warren (picture attached, on left), said: “Projects such as this are vital to the on-going redevelopment of Boscombe regeneration and with an established central location I believe that the Royal Arcade will be of real interest to a wide variety of occupiers, further boosting the reputation of the area and Bournemouth as a whole. We are working closely with Bournemouth planners and the conservation team to make sure that the development reproduces the Victorian feel that the arcade once had. We were very delighted with the efficiency of Cherry when handling our case. We first spoke with them in early May and, as soon as we gave them the green light to proceed, we had our funds within a month.” There are many more lenders operating in the property development sector now, with as many as 30 specialist lenders

– excluding high-street lenders, who also appear to have gained an appetite for this sector again – that will compete with varying terms for good development projects, such as the Royal Arcade. We can assist with providing short-term solutions to enable financing of refurbishment or development schemes. It is certainly worth speaking with a broker generally, to see if there are better terms than you have already been quoted. Matthew Fleming-Duffy (picture attached, on right), Director at Cherry Mortgage & Finance Ltd, said: “I am very pleased we were able to assist Graham with raising funds for this project. The Royal Arcade was originally built in 1892 and it really is a beautiful building. It’s great that the longterm redundant space above the commercial units can finally be given a purpose, and I’m sure will boost sales for the surrounding shops and café’s. The finance we were able to source for this project does reflect the general increased availability of funds for this type of development project and is in line with the Government initiative to relax planning permission for commercial units to be converted for residential use. As mortgage availability has also generally increased, this could really assist with the overall re-

generation of the Boscombe area as it will allow more residents to live there.” After a number of years in a turbulent economic climate, we are starting to see signs of recovery in the housing market. The Government’s Funding For Lending Scheme has cut the cost of borrowing and has enabled more funds to reach small businesses and consumers, forcing the finance markets to be more competitive. Recent Bank of England data shows that net lending from FLS participants in the last quarter was £1.6 billion This is great news, showing signs that the market is strengthening, which in turn has helped to

stabilise property prices and enables better forward planning of development sites as end values are becoming easier to predict. Construction at the site will start towards the end of 2013 and is expected to be completed by the summer of 2014.  Matthew Fleming-Duffy is a well-known industry commentator - particularly for the financial press and with Guy Anker, News Editor for www. moneysavingexpert.com - and is available for further comments on the local (and national) mortgage and commercial finance markets.

NATURE’S WAY FOR KIDS LAUNCH NEW WORKSHOPS

Dorset-based business Nature’s Way for Kids is delighted to launch their new themed workshops over the 2013/14 school year, giving children the chance to abandon their indoor entertainment systems and head to the farm instead. Themes will include “Underwater Explorer”, “Fairytales”, “A Pirate’s Life” and “Creepy Crawlies” with the option for toddlers and juniors to join in the fun. Nature’s Way for Kids offers tailor-made children’s workshops and parties, uniquely combining the garden, wildlife and nature themes with popular children’s favourites, providing fun, imaginative entertainment for children.  In addition to hosting birthday parties with a difference, there are numerous events scheduled throughout the coming year, including holiday clubs to weekly parent and toddler sessions, allowing children of all ages the opportunity to get involved. The business is based in the rural location of Bere Farm in Lytchett despite being only minutes away from the hustle

Councillor Robert Lawton, Bournemouth Borough Council and Steve Bartlett, National Landlords Association

and bustle of the town centre of Poole, making it an ideal retreat come rain or shine. With other businesses on-site including The Barn Café and Dorset Charcuterie, there is something for all the family providing parents with the opportunity to relax in peaceful surroundings, after taking advantage of what Nature’s Way has to offer. Owner, Catherine Morford, who also runs Poole-based Nature’s Way Garden Design says “As a business we already have a strong emphasis on wildlife-friendly and sustainable gardening and our Kids initiative continues with the same ethos, encouraging them to think about the natural environment and to open their eyes to growing their own food, through activities that are both enjoyable and educational.” So, maybe it’s time to dust of the kids wellies and go Nature’s Way. To find out more about upcoming events, please visit their website www.natureswayforkids.co.uk or contact Cath on 01202 748930.

BOURNEMOUTH AND POOLE LANDLORD CONFERENCE RETURNS FOR ITS SIXTH YEAR More than 300 private landlords from across Dorset are expected to attend this year’s Bournemouth and Poole Landlord Conference. Hosted at the Goldsands Stadium, Dean Court in Bournemouth on 10 October, the event promises to be a key date in the diary for any local landlord or agent who is looking for the very latest advice and information on letting a property. Now in its sixth year, the annual event has grown in popularity and offers seminars providing essential updates on national

and local policy as well as advice to help landlords make the most of their properties. There will also be a host of exhibitors offering a wide range of innovative ideas, advice and services. Councillor Robert Lawton, Cabinet Member for Housing, said: “The private rented sector provides homes for a significant proportion of residents in the area and the conference is a valuable opportunity for landlords and Councils to come together to share best practice. We are committed to ensuring the pri-

vate rented sector is well managed and is of a good standard for the benefit of both tenants and landlords.” This year Councils are working in partnership with the National Landlords Association, the main event sponsor. The event is free to all landlords and agents. To register or find out more about exhibiting at the conference visit: www.bournemouth.gov.uk/ landlordconference2013  or call 01202 451430.

EAST MEETS WEST With the recent launch of the ’Russian Desk’ at the Lilliput Head Office of the Lloyds Group it would appear that this initiative was well thought out in view of the imminent changes at AFC Bournemouth. The CEO of Bournemouth’s football club is currently engaged in negotiations with further possible revenue coming in from our Russian neighbours and with the recent sale of a very large pad in Branksome Park to yet another Russian investor it would appear that the Lloyds Group is definitely on the right track. With the ‘Russian Desk’ established over the past month, Tom Doyle, MD of the Lloyds Group, said: ‘We have been receiving a steady flow of enquiries from Eastern Europe, in particular Russia and with this in mind it

was the obvious move to employ a University graduate who spoke various languages particularly her native tongue of Russian and of course English amongst other languages. Yana is proving to be absolutely essential in the continual growth of our business and at least we are ready for this potential influx of more demand from Russia being the first to do offer this facility outside of Mayfair.’ Working between the 2 main offices of Lilliput and Canford Cliffs, Yani is learning fast about the massive portfolio of luxurious properties the Lloyds Group has on their books and her ability to speak so fluently in her mother tongue to interested Russian investors is a real coup for the Lloyds team. Ahead of the game has always been something that Tom prides him-

self on. Tom added: ‘We have always prided ourselves on feeling the trend in the market and this particular change in direction is something I am frankly thrilled we’ve pursued. I am not one to spend money unnecessarily and do think these things out before embarking on anything outside of the normal. It would however have been a total non brainer not to have jumped on the opportunity of employing this highly intelligent young lady who loves the area and who has the ability to converse with visitors from her own country - we simply seized the chance and I am glad we did.’ To discuss your property requirements with Yana please call her on 01202 708044 or: yana@lloydspropertygroup.com www.lloydspropertygroup.com 7

RETRO DESIGN

September marks the 50-year anniversary of the design staple. Half a century may have passed, but the Mathmos lava lamp’s popularity has stood the test of time, and is very much part of the current resurgence and celebration of all things vintage and classically British. Cressida Granger, owner and MD of Mathmos, says: “The lava lamp’s inventor, Edward

Craven Walker, described it best when he said, ‘I think it will always be popular. It is like the cycle of life. It grows, breaks up, falls down and then starts all over again.’ So see the (colourful) light and join the celebration by capturing some classic styling in your home. Here’s a selection of retroinspired homewares that look as modern and fresh today as the original models.

UNIQUE HOME IN LEAFY SETTING

Broad Avenue is one of the most popular roads in Queens Park. Its a wide tree-lined avenue leading off Queens Park Avenue so quite close to the golf course. Queens Park is a great area for all ages, with easy access to local schools, and lots of leisure opportunities. As well as Queens Park Golf Course (where you can ‘pay and play’ with no membership required), there are sports clubs and lots of open space nearby. As the majority of local properties are older, it is quite rare to have the chance to buy a modern house, and this one was completed in 2012. Architect designed for the late owner, the property complements the landscape with the sympathetic use of natural materials, including cedar cladding. Designed to facilitate single floor living if required, the property has generous ground floor space, including a south facing orangery/lounge – an impressive room with a high vaulted ceiling, Firebelly woodburner and bi-fold doors out to the timber deck balcony. The master bedroom is on the ground floor, with doors out to the garden and an en suite shower room. There are also two first floor double bedrooms (with Juliette balcony) and bathroom with double ended ball and claw foot bath.

FEATURES • Very modern and individually designed home • 3 double bedroom detached house on generous plot • Sympathetic use of natural materials • South facing Orangery/Lounge

• Ground floor en suite bedroom • Double garage with twin doors and useful loft space • Very high standard of energy efficiency • Lots of scope to landscape large rear garden

It offers expansive accommodation which has been exceptionally well considered; providing superb reception rooms including a magnificent drawing room with deep bay and attractive central fireplace, a most elegant room with high ceilings and lots of light. The dining room is equally impressive, again with extremely generous proportions with high ceiling and attractive cornicing. A further area to the house which lends itself to fine family living is the kitchen/breakfast room which measures 45’x 15’ 5” and is a particularly useful space for everyday living and entertaining. Under floor heating runs through the ground floor. The master suite is an impressive room with fabulous views over the garden and a particularly generous en suite bathroom. Whilst all other bedrooms are equally worthy of mention, one in particular is bedroom 2 which sits over the garage area and offers a particularly flexible space which could be a self-contained apartment with the room itself measuring 32’10 x 19’7” The house has been thoroughly thought through and the arrangement of accommodation is not only attractive but also particularly practical for family living. The west wing of the house at ground floor level incorporates the utility areas and garage block, which has 3 bays and is ideally arranged for the motoring enthusiast. The indoor pool complex has been sympathetically designed very much in keeping with the principal building and provides a super space for leisure activity with a magnificent pool at its heart and large seating area. The pool has attractive mosaic tiles giving deep blue tones with underwater lighting. The building is fitted with an air management system. The house is approached via electrically actuated wrought iron gates opening onto a tree-lined gravel drive culminating within a substantial turning and parking area immediately to the front of the property. There is a an attractive pond with deck surround set within a beautiful and very substantial collection of Japanese maples. At the south eastern quarter of the garden will be found a fabulous fern garden set beneath the trees central to which is a working well created from English oak along with hand made bricks and tiles. The paddock and stabling area lies immediately opposite the property and provides the equestrian enthusiast with good turnout stable block with tack rooms and able to house a number of horses. The paddock is just over 4 acres of pasture.

IF INSURANCE WAS A PARACHUTE, WHAT CHOICE WOULD YOU MAKE?

Get up to speed on the latest financial advice.

A MATTER OF SOME INTEREST We are a nation of aspiring homeowners, flocking to banks to borrow a small fortune for the dubious honour of saying we ‘own’ our home. You would think that the financial crisis would put us off the idea of owing money to Britain’s toxic banks, many of which are being funded through our taxes anyway. But new figures released last week show that mortgage lending is actually at its highest level since 2007, when the property market crashed spectacularly. First-time buyers are leading the way, attracted by lower house prices and Government incentives such as shared-equity schemes. In an ironic twist, this new property resurgence comes as the previous generation of mortgage-owners approach the end of their interest-only terms with no means of paying off the capital. According to the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), more than 1.3 million people will not be able to repay the capital when their interest-only mortgage comes to an end, with the average shortfall amounting to £71,000. So how do you avoid building up an unsustainable mortgage debt? And if you are already struggling to meet your capital payments, what can you do to avoid repossession?

AFFORDING YOUR MORTGAGE

38

The low repayments of interest-only mortgages can be tempting, particularly for first-time buyers or people on lower incomes. For the first couple of years you may want the benefit of making smaller repayments on your mortgage while you spend money on the property, or elsewhere. But sooner or later, you will have to figure out how you are going to repay the capital when the mortgage term completes. The best way of doing this is to get into a regular pattern of saving, either in a high-interest, long-term bond, or in an ISA wrapper. With a long-term bond (10 years or more) your money is tied up for a set period of time, earning a fixed rate of interest. As a general rule, the longer the term, the higher the interest rate, for instance, while a UK Gilt 10 Year Yield pays 1.92%, a 30-year version pays 3.19%. No tax is paid on the capital or interest of the bond until it has been fully encashed, so you can time the encashment to coincide with your retirement, when your tax liability will be a bit lower. If you opt to save through a Cash ISA or a Stocks and Shares ISA, if may be worth choosing one which does not offer easy access to your funds, to avoid the temptation of dipping into your house savings on a rainy day. If you were to save your full Cash ISA allowance of £5,760 every year, it would take you around 12 years to save up the average national shortfall of £71,000.

IT’S FATHER’S DAY - SO DAD, HOW MUCH ARE YOU WORTH? Just how much does a typical Dad do around the house in a week? A sizable 50 hours- 20 of which are dedicated to looking after children! A financial value of £21,306 a year! That’s how much you are worth, Dad! The findings, according to a report from Legal & General in 2011, means that this is what it would cost to pay someone else to do Dad’s housework and share of childminding! An average of £29,000 salary is earned by a working Dad, and the stakes are high if Dad died or is unable to work long term due to illness! Families need to think about how they would cope financially if Dad was no DISCOUNTED INSURANCE (50%inOFF) longer providing an income. According to the research L&G’s report, only Will the parachute open when you need it? 64% of Dads have life insurance, 22% had Income Protection (to protect their What if itthat doesn’t? salaries) and only 19% had a policy would pay out a monthly income if Dad died! THE L&G RESEARCH ALSO FOUND THAT: • Dads carry out £172 worth of child care on average every week- Could you afford to give up work or pay someone for childcare if Dad was no longer around? • The day to day cost of raising a child is £143 per week- Could you afford these costs should the worst happen? Your family is important to you, and that’s why you spend your time caring for them and giving them the best lifestyle possible.

HIFI ON THE HIGH SEAS

The extent of your audio-visual kit on board your seafaring yacht needn’t be limited to a wind-up radio and portable television, far from it. Leading audio-visual specialist and local firm Dawsons have recently scooped a prestigious Cedia award at this year’s event. The award for ‘Best Marine Installation’ was given to Westbourne based Dawsons following their bespoke installation aboard MY Imperial Princess, Princess Yacht’s flagship new vessel. House magazine had an exclusive tour of the yacht to see just what goes into creating the ultimate audio-visual experience onboard. The pioneering AV design and installation aboard MY Imperial Princess provides a bespoke multi-cabin wireless system utilising a wide range of products tailored especially for the yacht’s internal and external areas. The system’s specification complements the luxury yacht by combining Denon Blu-ray receivers with Linn speakers, Velodyne subwoofers and Kaleidescape movie server. All of which are simply operated through a Crestron iPad control system. We were wow’d by the sleek and user friendly Crestron iPad

interface which was custom designed by Dawsons’ highly skilled installation team. The interface provides an intuitive level of audio control that allows guests to create a personalised environment within their cabins. The system also contains bespoke firmware which guests can use to adjust the air conditioning and lighting within the cabin. The Captain has access to all cabins from his iPad and can globally set temperatures and lighting if required ahead of his guest’s arrival. We had great fun playing with the settings that will keep guests entertained for hours! Each cabin features its own Denon iPod dock and Apple iPod Touch along with a Denon Blu-ray receiver, which is paired with the superb Linn 104/106 in ceiling speakers and Velodyne subwoofers. The Sky deck is equipped with a removable TV and an additional iPod controller allowing users to control the Kaleidescape zone player and enjoy movies and music from the central server. The audio is reproduced in external areas by a variety of Speakercraft flush mounted speakers and subwoofers, driven from Dawsons’ unique IcePower amplifiers provid-

ing exceptional sound quality free from distortion allowing us to enjoy tunes as crisp and clear as the wine we enjoyed whilst relaxing on the deck in the sunshine. The entire installation provides outstanding picture and sound quality, carefully considered for the ease of use for both the owner and guests. The design is also invisible within the interior design by Bannenberg & Rowell / Princess design team, demonstrating a fine example of exemplary workmanship. With such an exceptional experience to be had onboard a yacht it’s evident why Dawsons were chosen for the latest in a long line of prestigious awards. Dawsons have further established their reputation as an industry leading audio-visual marine specialist after winning the coveted title of ‘Best Marine Installation’ for the second year running. This builds on previous accolades in 2008, 2009, 2011 and 2012, firmly establishing Dawsons as the leading installer of innovative audio-visual solutions for the luxury yacht market. To discuss your audio-visual requirements from a set of headphones right through to a bespoke cinema aboard your yacht, call Dawsons on 01202 764 965 or visit: www.dawsonsav.co.uk

OUTDOOR LIVING

THE GREAT OUTDOORS

ESSENTIAL GUIDE TO...

AL FRESCO GARDENING There’s something truly heroic about eating outdoors in Britain, as we either dodge the raindrops, battle against the odds to stop sandwiches curling and ice cream melting, or wave away the wasps. Although it’s definitely not a venture for the faint-hearted, the rewards are great - after all, who doesn’t have fond memories of lazy days picnicking or sultry evenings dining under a starry night sky? Small wonder then that our appetite for al fresco is increasing. “Generally, people are becoming much more keen to live outdoors and really enjoy entertaining there. It’s part of the whole home trend for blurring the boundaries between the indoors and outdoors,” says Steven

Duggan, celebrity event planner. “A meal is somehow more special if it’s eaten outdoors, and there’s a realisation that being creative about the whole setting - paying attention to every detail, from the table decoration to the lighting makes it even more so. “It’s quite common now to see chandeliers or lanterns hung from trees, elaborate centrepieces on tables using glass and flowers, and a theme such as a colour or style.” Sir Elton John, Adele and Leona Lewis are just a few of the many celebrity clients for whom Duggan has created events, but he doesn’t believe a big budget is essential.

“Being imaginative is far more key. For instance, if a table’s too small for a large gathering, get creative and use an old door on trestles. It can be easily dressed with a white sheet and decorated with jam jars or milk bottles filled with freshly-picked wild flowers,” he says. “The trend currently is an organic, back-to-basics look, where soft shades such as mustard and olive green feature as colour themes, but look out for stronger colour and vintage or kitsch pattern later in the summer.”

Turn the centre of a table into a focal point, he advises, by arranging a line of small glass vases, filled with anything from hydrangeas to buttercups, interspersed with tea lights in pretty containers. “Add decadent detail with gold or silver-rimmed crockery and glassware,” he says. “Have a large candelabra or a string of outdoor lights draped along the table, and the effect will be magical.” So take on the outdoors and win with stylish settings that will be a feast for the eyes.

65


OUTDOOR LIVING

VINTAGE GARDEN PARTY This classic but simple setting needs only a few ingredients - colourful fabric, a collection of pretty china and blooms picked from the garden. “Buy or make bunting - strips of patterned fabric tied onto a string line work well - and drape it around a garden or along a fence to make the garden look extra pretty,” says Jan Goodchild, marketing manager at Hobbycraft. “If you’re planning a more intimate gathering, glass painted tea light votives or candles made using old tea cups and saucers as containers, together with a table runner or cloth made from a soft chintz pattern fabric, will help create a more vintage look.

66

“As always, it’s often a few finishing touches that can make an occasion memorable.” Get the look: No one does that quintessentially English tea party look better than Laura Ashley. For the table: a set of three Flower-Shaped Melamine Dishes, from £12; a set of six Butterfly Tealights, £5. Accessorise with Butterfly Fairy Lights, from £21, and a Hanging Butterfly Tealight Holder, from £15. Add to the effect with Paper Chains in a variety of designs, £4.20; Truly Scrumptious Bunting, £7, and Honeycomb Birdcages, £4.20 each, all from Talking Tables. Bird-spotters will love Fifties-style plates, £26 each, featuring a Thrush, Wagtail, Robin or Blue tit, from Magpie. Alternatively, hang up a Wire Birdcage, £39.95, Oscar & Eve, and use it for a pillar candle or fill with flowers.

If you like making your own effects, be inspired at the Ideas Library at hobbycraft.co.uk.


BEACH BARBECUE

BOHEMIAN PICNIC Moroccan style, known for its intricate patterns and jewel-rich colours, is fashionable in homes and works beautifully outdoors. “The heady night bazaars of North Africa and the Middle East inspire this look,” says Tori Finch, author of A Perfect Day For A Picnic (Ryland Peters & Small, £16.99) which is filled with inspiring ideas for settings, as well as 80 recipes. “To create the scene, hang Moroccan lanterns or patterned sari fabric from trees, or dot them around a ground rug - a Persian style one if you have it, or a large coloured tablecloth works just as well.

Get the look: Set the scene with a set of six vividly-coloured Medina T-light Holders, £14.95, Dotcomgiftshop. Source sari fabrics from markets or specialist websites and add atmospheric lighting with Moroccan-style Solar Metal Star String Lights, £15, available online and in stores, and Selvedge Outdoor Lantern, £25, in stores only, Sainsbury’s. Low-level seating is a feature of this decadent laid-back style and Graham & Green has a selection of Moroccan leather pouffes, from £139 each.

“Indian bunting looks very pretty, as do large cushions or pouffes to recline on. Beautiful earthenware pots and tagines make effective serving bowls for the delicious feast, and serve mint tea in pretty coloured tea glasses resting on a silver tray.”

Lazy days by the beach call for al fresco meals, but even if you’re far from the seashore you can still enjoy a coastal-style feast. “As a nation we’re becoming more adventurous with dining outdoors and there’s a big trend for the garden becoming an extra room in which to entertain and relax,” says Clare Barton at Sainsbury’s. “Whatever the weather, the great British barbecue is a summer essential - perfect for a coastal or country setting. One of the first decisions to make is whether to cook on gas or charcoal, and this ultimately boils down to budget and personal preference. “Supporters of gas swear by its ease and fuss-free approach, while charcoal barbecues offer authentic results at a minimal cost. “Should you wish to be more creative with your cooking, look to incorporate smoking boxes to infuse food with a subtle smoked flavour, or barbecue planks which give food a uniquely woody, tender and aromatic taste. Fish

grills, chicken roasters and sausage rollers are also a great way to make cooking effortless.” Get the look: Blue and white is a classic combination and instantly evokes the freshness of a seaside setting. Laura Ashley’s Whitby Check dining accessories collection includes a Tablecloth, from £19.60, and Seat Pad, from £20 each. Red and white features in Sainsbury’s Regatta tableware collection, from £2, a Beach Sign, £6, and a Red Picnic Tin, £12 (available in stores only). Even if you missed ‘the big one’, flaunt a great catch with shellfish-decorated Serving and Salad Bowls, from £24.95 each, Richard Bramble. Don’t worry about sea breezes blowing out your candles; LED and battery lights are the answer. White Colour Changing Led Lantern, £1, Poundland. Finally, make transporting food easy with a colourful and lightweight Outdoors Woven Picnic Basket, £16, Waitrose.

writer, broadcaster and allround food expert and in his new book, Food DIY, details how to make everything from restaurant classics like confit duck legs to items you’re more likely to find at the local chippy, such as pickled eggs. “The intention was to do something unlike other cookbooks, really,” says 50-year-old Hayward. “It’s more than just a recipe book, it’s about an ideology, and I would never expect the people reading to change the way they shop and eat forever. We’ve evolved beyond making your own bacon for the rest of your days. “What I want is people to try it once, and then I think it changes your relationship with the food you’re eating. Make your own bacon, and you’ll never buy that unpleasantly-made stuff that turns to water in the pan ever again.” Hayward, who lives in Cambridge with his wife and

RECIPE Ingredients 300g warm water 5g (1tsp) baking powder Butter for greasing and serving

Method Put the flour into a mixing bowl, sprinkle in the yeast and the salt and thoroughly combine. Make a well in the middle and pour in the warm milk. Start to work the batter with a wooden spoon, letting it down little by little with the warm water until it’s smooth and pourable. Cover with a tea towel and allow to rise in a warm place until the dough has doubled in size. Grease some metal cooking rings with butter and put them into a well-greased, heavy-bottomed skillet or frying pan. Place on a medium flame. Quickly and lightly beat the baking powder into the batter, then pour a ladleful into each ring to a depth of around 1cm. You’ll need to alter the temperature of the pan for each batch, but you’re aiming for them to rise and set in 8-10 minutes without burning on the bottom. Once the top has just set, flip the rings over, loosen the sides of the crumpets with a knife and push them out of the ring so the top of the crumpet can lightly tan. Serve hot from the pan, with fresh butter. 92

Cut of pork belly 500g salt 300g sugar Prague Powder No.1 (available widely online) - allow 2.5g (¼tsp) per kg of meat to be cured (the sodium nitrite keeps the bacon pink, rather than the unattractive beige of cured pork) This is easiest and most efficient way of making your own bacon, halfway between full dry cure and wet cure (Hayward's book features recipes for both). Get hold of a nice fatty piece of belly pork - any size you fancy as long as you can find a ziplock freezer bag that it will fit into. Mix together the salt, sugar and Prague Powder No.1, to form what is known as a 'dry cure'. Rub the cure hard into the meat. Put the meat into the bag and pour in the rest of the cure. Zip it up and put it into the fridge. Turn it over every day and, after a week, rinse it off and pat it dry. Then slice, fry and eat.

daughter, started down this path years ago and says it’s a natural extension of being a “massively nerdy child” taking apart radios and clocks to see how they worked. “I think it’s a way of getting more certainty in your life, taking things apart to dissect them,” he says. “I don’t just want to make a stew, I want to know what happens to the meat when it’s cooking. I went to art college, so maybe this comes from an interest in craft, because cooking, after all, is just another craft.” He started out making bread, perfecting various sourdough recipes before trying to master his own version of Kentucky Fried Chicken. “I spent a lot of time in the Deep South in the US, so knew that fried chicken could be better,” he says.

Life thing, it’s not about being self-sufficient and saving money, although saying that, making your own smoked salmon will save you a fortune. But on the whole, it’s about a high quality of food, not thrift.” Where to start then? There are some recipes and techniques in Food DIY that will need some working up to - spit-roasting a whole lamb won’t be for everyone but there are plenty for even the most amateur of home cooks to try. “I would suggest the bacon as an easy starting point,” says Hayward. “It takes minutes to do and the results are fantastic. “Once you get your head around the fact you can cover some meat in salt, hang it, wait a week, then eat it - and it won’t be full of bacteria - then there are no limits to what you can achieve.”

RECIPE

Bath buns Ingredients

250g whole milk 10g quick-action dried yeast 650g strong white flour, plus some for kneading 30g caster sugar 5g (1tsp) salt 275g unsalted butter, softened 50g sultanas 1 egg, beaten

Method For the glaze: 40g caster sugar 20g water 4 white sugar cubes

Warm the milk to 30C in a pan and whisk in the yeast. Leave for 10 minutes, until frothy. Combine the flour, sugar and salt in a bowl and work in the butter with your fingertips. Stir in the milk, then bring together into a dough. If you’re kneading by hand, allow to rest for 20 minutes; if you have a mixer, fit the dough hook and start kneading until it becomes elastic. This usually takes 10 minutes in the mixer or 15 by hand. Cover the dough with a tea towel and allow to rise in a warm place for two hours or until doubled in size. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and poke it out into a flat shape. Sprinkle on the sultanas and quickly work them in. Divide into 12 pieces. With floured hands, shape each bun. Pull the corners of each piece over and down, pinching them together underneath. Keep stretching and tucking so it looks like the upper surface of the bun is stretched tight over the insides. This membrane will hold the bun’s shape as it rises and cooks and give the characteristic smooth crust. Lay the buns on a sheet of quick-release silicone paper on a baking tray, with plenty of room between them for expansion. Allow to rise in a warm place until doubled in size again. Preheat the oven to 180C/Gas mark 4. Glaze the buns with the beaten egg, then cook in the oven for 20-25 minutes, or until the underside of the buns sounds hollow when knocked. Dissolve the sugar in the hot water to make a syrup. As soon as the buns come out of the oven, paint the syrup over them. Before the glaze dries, crush the sugar cubes with a rolling pin and sprinkle over the top. Hayward suggests serving with damson jam and clotted cream. 93

Sunny “

Philip Broadhead, Manager of Goadsby in Canford Cliffs reports a very busy and successful sales period in this the Branch’s 20th year.

in Canford Cliffs As you can imagine we are thrilled to be celebrating 20 years in Canford Cliffs and to have enjoyed one of our busiest

periods is like a double celebration; it’s like one never ending summer!

enthused Philip.

The Canford Cliffs team celebrate their ‘never ending summer’.

W

hilst the year started quieter, the dramatic change in the weather from April has seen a surge in sales and hot activity across the market – with many situations where we have seen multiple buyers for a single property. Below is a breakdown in the market:

House Market Houses and Bungalows particularly those close to Canford Cliffs Village - have seen incredible activity recently, with 8 agreed in the last few months alone!

Apartment Market Statistics show that we are one of the busiest agents in terms of selling flats within the Canford Cliffs area. The dual market of the

second home buyers along with the downsizers means apartments always go quickly in this area – particularly in The Avenue area of Branksome Park. With this continued strong demand we now have a specialist Apartment Centre in Westbourne which will work alongside all of our local offices in the marketing of apartments.

New Homes We have acted for a number of New Home clients both in the sale of Houses and Flats. Recent houses include a development of three luxury homes for Willton Homes in Lower Parkstone and “Strata” in Canford Cliffs for Pennyfarthing Homes, a contemporary new development of apartments with only a few remaining.

ASK THE PROPERTY EXPERT THE CIRCLE OF LIFE The rental sector is strong and the future for landlords is looking good. Whether you are a reluctant landlord or an investment landlord, if your property is in good order and has been valued at the right price, void gaps between tenancies should be very minimal! We have of course the mass of younger generation, who are struggling to get onto the market ladder, stats indicate the first time buyer being in their mid-thirties if they have help from the bank of mum and dad or late thirties if not, of course, the new ‘help to buy’ scheme is proving to show good signs in the new build sector and in January 2014 we have the ‘Mortgage Guarantee Scheme’ being introduced for properties up to £600,00 which will also help boost property sales and could generate a housing bubble – a whole other story! So… we have the younger generation looking to rent into their thirties and helping the rental sector boom, but we also have the older generation. Retirement age is not as bountiful as it should be, perhaps the thought of selling your home to pay for you care later in life doesn’t have the same importance as perhaps enjoying the fruits of your labour. Whatever the reason, the retired generation are selling their homes to release the equity to enjoy/support them through those years. Some buy smaller properties, some go into rented and some are moving in with their children, to help with grandparent duties and share the living costs. My children are at a stage where they have all flown the nest and I sometimes wonder, (in my mischievous spells), if we were to move in with them in our retirement years how we could get our own back… not turn the lights off, don’t tell anyone if we have used the last toilet roll, put empty cereal boxes back in the cupboards…. Oh and if we were to be pulled up on it we could show the hand and say ‘whatever, chill’. Mmmm, the circle of life.

OUTDOOR LIVING

THIS SUMMER

LET THE KIDS GO WILD Adam Frost has already urged people to think about wildlife at this year’s RHS Chelsea Flower Show, but the gold medal-winning garden designer isn’t done with his campaigning yet. He is now urging parents to get their children into the great outdoors this summer and help reverse the decline of British wildlife. The State of Nature report, carried out by a coalition of conservation organisations, recently revealed that 60% of British wildlife is in decline, while at the same time, a further research found two thirds of British school children want to be taught more about gardening and to engage with the outdoors. “I have four children aged between six and 16, who all have a keen interest in nature,” says Frost, who designed the Homebase ‘Sowing The Seeds Of Change’ garden at the RHS Chelsea Flow Show. “The garden is at the heart of our home, where many memories are made while children are growing up. 120

“I’ve spent lots of time with my own children both in my own garden and in the wider countryside. We do things together like going on country walks, growing and picking fruit and bird spotting - the list is endless.” Encouraged by these thoughts, Frost has now come up with a plan for parents on how to bring their children into the garden and to attract wildlife at the same time.

CREATE A PLANTING PLAN Mix together plants that are both beneficial to people and wildlife, such as fruits, vegetables and herbs, with shrubs and perennial herbaceous plants, to create an area where there is produce for humans and wildlife. Recommended plants that attract wildlife include sunflowers, wild strawberries, thyme, herbs and firethorn shrubs which offer nectar and berries to a range of wildlife.

A SELECTION OF SALAD CROPS This requires regular attention and will give children something to focus on right up until they eat them. Seeds should be watered every evening and given plant food once a week. Lettuce and other salad leaves can be sown in spring and summer.

GO SEED COLLECTING Look closely for plants in your borders where flower heads have fallen off and seeds are growing. If the seeds are brown, get the children to help you pick them and put them in a warm place to dry out ready to plant for next spring.

CREATE A COMPOST HEAP Look closely for plants in your borders where flower heads have fallen off and seeds are growing. If the seeds are brown, get the children to help you

pick them and put them in a warm place to dry out ready to plant for next spring.

TAKE GAMES OUTDOORS Go on a treasure hunt or play hideand-seek to encourage children to explore the garden and stimulate their curiosity about the outdoors. If you have daisies in the garden, teach them to make daisy chains.

SET UP BIRD FEEDING STATIONS Birds come to gardens to feed, breed, nest and rest. To make sure your garden is accommodating, introduce a bird house, feeding station or a bird bath - all of these are a must for budding young bird watchers. The water in a bird bath needs to be at least 2.5cm deep and should be placed in the open away from areas where cats may hide.


BEST OF THE BUNCH LILIUM ‘MONA LISA’ They have the most glorious, heady scent in summer along with beautiful blooms in shades from white and pink to gold and coppery amber. There are so many varieties, whether you want compact and colourful or tall and exotic ones. Some varieties are perfect for summer pots, such as the Asiatic and oriental hybrids with short stout stems and fresh green foliage. Try Lilium ‘Mona Lisa’, a highly scented type reaching 40cm in height, with open blooms or pink and white flushed deep pink towards the centre. Lilies are just as happy in the flower border, filling in the gaps where others have run out of steam in mid-summer. Plant them in a sunny spot and you should have wonderful results.

STORE LOGS Plenty of wildlife makes its home in dead wood, and other animals use it as a source of food. Children can help make this into a proper wildlife shelter in a small, shady spot so that it remains cool and damp. If moving wood, check beforehand that nothing has already made itself at home.

WHAT TO DO THIS WEEK: IN YOUR GARDEN Make the most of those few sunny days left this Sumer and get out in the garden to tend to your plants and shrubs. The more time we spend before Winter sets in the easier it makes the maintenance in next Summer.

MAKE AN INSECT BOX OR LADYBIRD HOUSE Use spare or dead wood to create a small space to attract spiders, bees, lacewings and ladybirds, where they can seek refuge from predators and from the cold. Screw together four lengths of wood and fill it with hollow canes. Place the box in a sheltered area and on the fence so the insects can find it. Families can receive further help on how to encourage wildlife into their garden by visiting the Homebase online forum www.getintogardening.co.uk.

OUTDOOR LIVING

GOOD ENOUGH TO EAT PERFECT PEACHES You don’t have to live in a Mediterranean to enjoy mouthwatering peaches in summer. However, peaches do need a lot of care in our climate. They can be grown in warm areas with the protection of a fairly high south-facing wall or fence but the flowers come early and the fruits need a lot of time to ripen. It’s therefore probably best to start them off in a greenhouse and keep them there at flowering time to protect them from frost. The trees need deep, well drained but moisture-retentive slightly acid soil, with plenty of organic matter added. They 122

should be planted in autumn and respond well to fan training. They are self-pollinating so you can grow single trees, but, as they blossom before many insects appear, it’s wise to hand pollinate them as well. The easiest cultivars to grow in pots are compact or ‘patio’ cultivars, standard trees on high stems with a ball-like head. In late winter peach trees need to be sheltered to keep the rain off and stop peach leaf curl developing.

AN APPLE A DAY Throughout September, apple trees will be ready for harvest providing fruit over the coming months.Apple trees are easy to grow and it is possible to choose a size and variety to suit your taste and space.Here is how to get started.

SIZE • The rootstock of an apple tree determines it’s eventual size. When you buy an apple tree this healthy root system will have a scion grafted onto it, which controls the variety. • Rootstocks are indicated using the below codes. Generally, M26 and MM106 are strong rootstocks ideal for small to medium sized gardens.

ROOSTOCK CODE

EVENTUAL SIZE

M27 M9 M26 MM106 MM111 M25

1.8m 2m 3m 3-4m 4m 4.5m +

SHAPE The following form of apple trees are most suitable for a residential garden.

THREE WAYS TO... STOP VEGETABLES BOLTING Delay sowing cold-sensitive plants such as turnips, endive and Swiss chard, until temperatures are more stable.

Keep soil moisture levels constant, as dry soil can encourage bolting, particularly with cauliflower, rocket and spinach.

Raise early crops of onions and beetroot in modules in a greenhouse and plant out when temperatures are warmer. Choose cultivars less likely to bolt, such as ‘Boltardy’ beetroot.

• Bush-trained trees are usually bought as one or two year old trees, with some initial training. They have a clear stem at the base but the branches start lower than on a standard tree. • Half standard trees are best selected as a specimen tree or for a small orchard. It has a more traditional appearance and a longer stem. • Cordon/espalier trees are ideal when space is limited and can be grown against a sunny wall or fence still providing a substantial crop of fruit.

POLLINATION • Apple trees are best grown where there is another one in close proximity that flowers at the same time. Ideally, if you have space for two it is likely to achieve a better success rate. • Pollination groups are used classify varieties that flower at the same time ensuring good pollination and a larger crop. • From groups 1-7, pick two varieties from the same pollination group or those adjacent. For example, a variety from group 4 should be planted with a second tree from groups 3,4 or 5. • If you don’t have space for two trees, you can opt for a selfpollinating variety or keep an eye out in surrounding garden for any established apple trees and note the flowering time.

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.

SAFE AS HOUSES

THIS WEEK: How to make your house danger-proof. Keeping you and your family safe in the home is obviously something you don’t plan to take chances on, but it’s not always easy to know if you’re dicing with danger. We often stick to the wiring we’ve inherited when we move into a new home because having a property rewired is a major upheaval, and can be very expensive. Unless the sockets, light switches and flexes are obviously outdated, it’s also hard to tell if the wiring needs to be redone. A good place to start checking is the fuse box - if it has rewirable fuses, for example, it’s in need of an update because modern fuse boxes don’t use fuse wire (however, fuse boxes are sometimes replaced without the rest of the wiring being updated, so you can’t rely on this as an indicator). Other indicators of old wiring you can look out for include sockets with burn marks, single rather than double sockets, sockets mounted on skirting boards, and surface-mounted cables.

The only way to be really sure if the wiring is safe though, is to get a qualified electrician to test it. For this, and if your home does subsequently need rewiring, make sure you use an electrician registered with one of the Government’s competent-person schemes, such as NICEIC (www.niceic. com), as they can self-certify that their work complies with the law. If they don’t belong to such a scheme, you can get their work checked by your local council’s building control department or an approved inspector, who provides the same service but doesn’t work for the council. The key thing is to get a completion certificate so you can prove that the electrical installation is safe and legal, something often needed when you sell or rent out your home. Gas appliances are another potential danger in the home. By law, they must be installed by a Gas Safe Register engineer (www.gassaferegister. co.uk). It’s also important to get them serviced annually by a Gas Safe Register engineer to ensure they’re safe

with a tea towel. Some alarms are also ‘toast proof’, meaning they’re less likely to be set off by cooking fumes. Since June 1992, all new homes have had to be fitted with interlinking mains-operated smoke alarms. Interlinking means that if there’s a fire, all the alarms will go off at the same time - even if you’re sleeping a long way from the fire, you’ll be alerted instantly. This process wasn’t a requirement in older properties, so if your home doesn’t have one, you can either have the hassle and expense of an electrician wiring them in, or you can find a wirelessly interlinking system. and working as efficiently as possible. Carbon monoxide poisoning from gas appliances can, of course, be fatal and is hard to detect, which is why you need a carbon monoxide alarm in each room where there’s a gas appliance. But simply fitting one isn’t enough - you must press the test button on it regularly to ensure that it’s working, and change the batteries if neces-

sary - although some alarms have integral batteries that can’t be replaced. Smoke alarms should also be tested regularly, but there’s nothing more annoying than one that goes off every time you burn a piece of toast. Taking out the battery is a potentially dangerous habit to get in to, so an alarm with a silencer button is invaluable and saves you flapping around dementedly

The FireAngel Wireless Interlink Smoke Alarm (£29.98, B&Q, currently three for the price of two) is quick and easy to install and has a 10year internal power pack, so you won’t need to change the batteries or worry about them not working. Products like this make keeping your home safe really easy and while they’re not especially cheap, you can’t put a price on safety.

PRODUCT OF THE WEEK RONSEAL NO RUST METAL PAINT Why treat, prime and undercoat rust before painting it, when you could simply paint straight over it? Ronseal No Rust Metal Paint (from £5.99 for 250ml, www.tooled-up.com) is all you need for a quick and easy transformation. It comes in five colours (White, Black, Dark Brown, Dark Green and Silver) and not only gives bare and previously painted metal six years of protection against rust, it can also be applied straight onto rust, so it’s a real time-saver. Even though the paint’s solvent based, it’s drip resistant, nice to apply and dries quickly, basically no better way to banish rust! 138

HOW-TO PAINTING RUSTY METAL Before painting rusty metal, rub it down with sandpaper or a wire brush to remove any loose rust, then clean it off with a sponge or cloth that won’t disintegrate and leave bits behind on the metal.

INTERIORS

We all need a place - a private hideaway - where we can get away from our busy lives and enjoy elusive quiet time or hobbies. The solution can be as simple as a spare room, a garden shed or, if you’re fortunate, a beach hut. But increasingly people are thinking outside of the box room and investing in a range of imaginative sanctuaries. These days your retreat could be a romantic gypsy caravan or a storybook-style treehouse through to a state-of-the-art outdoor room clad in timber, a glass and steel entertaining pod or, more quirkily, a Tolkienstyle Hobbit Hole. “It’s all about being

able to separate ourselves from everyday life and all its routines,” says Jane Field-Lewis, author of My Cool Shed: An Inspirational Guide To Stylish Hideaways And Workspaces. “There’s a huge satisfaction in having your own personal space, in a separate building from your home, styled and decorated as you wish, which gives you the opportunity to work or relax in your own way.” She’s travelled the world looking at the ways people fulfil their dreams of expression and escape, whether it’s a renovated air raid shelter, a Californian beach hut, a fishing shack or even a sea shipping container converted

into a studio. “An intrinsic part of their charm is that normal decorating rules don’t apply and they give their owners the freedom to express themselves in a different way,” she says. “They embody the spirit of the new style, which has an unexpected beauty and doesn’t necessarily follow fashion or trends. “Given this choice, people don’t necessarily follow convention. They create their own environment, often with unexpected and refreshing design ideas and consequences.” Let your imagination take flight and explore the possibilities of a space of your own.

SHED SENSE Garden sheds, once somewhere to stash a lawnmower or the preserve of pipe-smoking men, have been reborn. These humble buildings are increasingly being given makeovers, especially as our desire to move is thwarted by hard economic times. They can be cheaply and easily spruced up with a lick of paint, dressed with curtains and cushions, and will work as a hobby room, retreat for teenagers or somewhere to simply think, read or write. Do bear in mind a shed will need insulating if you want to work in it during winter, and you need a qualified electrician to install lighting. GET THE LOOK: Botanical or floral prints in easy-care cotton are practical and harmonise with a garden setting. Source from companies like John Lewis or, for a vintage, faded chintz look, Cabbages & Roses or Cath Kidston. Dig into the range of furniture and accessories at Garden Trading. Second-hand furniture, upcycled by repainting or varnishing, or sturdy pieces from Ikea, can be ideal for a compact space. Personalise with photos or images cut from magazines mounted in glass klip frames such as a Kenro Clip 16x20in Photo Frame Plexiglass, from £12.98, Amazon. 140

GLASS THE JOINT A glass room is perfect if you’re concerned that an extension or outdoor room will dominate a garden. “In many cases, people don’t necessarily want more space in their homes - they want separate rooms where they can entertain, relax and have a get-away-from-it-all feeling,” says Gary Davis, director at IQ Glass Rooms. “These can look beautiful at night as, with stateof-the-art lighting, they can seem to ‘float’ in the outdoor area. Owners often site them at the end of the garden and enjoy the perspective it gives them of their main property.” GET THE LOOK: Enhance a sense of space with perspex or acrylic furniture from companies like Luminati, which has an Acrylic Bookshelf from £241.95 and an Acrylic Coffee Table from £121.45.

HOW TO USE GRAVEL IN YOUR GARDEN THIS SUMMER There are many uses for gravel in your garden other than just surfacing large areas. Mulching, laying as a pathway, or even creating a focal point with a pair of chairs and table. The real charm of gravel is that it comes in many different forms yet they can all be retailed under the same name. Landscaping gravel can be sold as pea gravel, horticultural grit, decorative gravel, coarse-grade stone chippings, stone aggregate and even shingle. And as it ranges from different source materials so the colours available differ as well. Depending on what application you have in mind and what has already been established within your garden setting so far, why not pop down and see us, you are sure to

KEEPING UP WITH JONES Jane Jones Jane Jones PR

When you flick through your copy of House on Monday morning, please spare a thought for me as I will probably still be litter picking at Ashley Cross after another Party in the Park comes to an end for this year. I will be shattered, I’ll be highly emotional and probably feeling down in the dumps, yet, all good things must come to an end and a day down in West Bexington - my favourite spot in the whole of Dorset and where I am heading for a bit of Jurassic pick-me-up - will certainly get me back on track. For those of you who attended Party in the Park, I hope we exceeded expectations and now it’s time to start thinking about the follow up; but not before embarking on this next event in my favourite place, slightly further away from the madding crowd but which will be equally as family orientated. I can’t wait. And talking of taking off, wasn’t the Air Festival just amazing? I had the best time ever on the Friday when I was invited by our clients, Meridian Lifts, to experience the airborne action from their hospitality area on the Pier to support a charity close to all of our hearts, the Wessex Cancer Trust. I had the pleasure of meeting up with many old friends and, even better, made some fantastic new contacts for JJ PR. The weather as you know was simply glorious and the standard of air displays second-to-none. Well done Bournemouth with particular credit going to Mark Smith, Head of Tourism. I know this isn’t breaking news, but what about Eddie Mitchell leaving AFC Bournemouth? You have to take your hat off to the man. He hauled the club up from two leagues down, transformed the stadium into a state-of-the-art venue and now leaves a legacy, including a dedicated personnel carefully selected to maintain all the good work in his absence, that should ensure the team goes on to even bigger and better things. I suspect we’ll still see him at many of the games but enjoy your retirement Eddie as I for one think you have done a great job. I know it’s a cliché, but love him or hate him, he did a storming job. A few little birds (yes, this is a particular pet subject of mine, but this time the tweeting is of the human variety) have questioned the plans that are afoot for changes, particularly in Poole, along the beach front. I realise we don’t have the right to a view but I’ve heard that certain prized vistas may disappear. Watch this space - or not! Many of my friends can confirm that I have physic powers but it doesn’t take a soothsayer to know that the latest rumblings of uniting our conurbation will not come a day too soon. The city of Poole Bay! Will this really happen and what are the odds that certain towns will not agree with the name? As mentioned previously, I strongly feel that a one-citysized local authority could save our area millions; and maybe we can follow Bristol City Council’s lead and cut down on many of our highlypaid officials. To finish, I’ve recently heard about a local bus driver who happened to have a very poorly person on his rather full bus. The unfortunate individual was having a heart attack and what did this quick-thinking driver do? He dropped all his other passengers onto the pavement and preceded post-haste to the hospital, getting the invalid there in the nick of time. Quick thinking or what?

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

THE SECRET LANGUAGE OF BROWS There’s no denying that bushybrowed supermodel Cara Delevingne is one of the models of the moment. And while it is difficult to achieve Cara’s glamorous lifestyle, it is possible to emulate her enviable facial features… Shaping eyebrows  is a simple thing that can bring about big changes to a person’s overall look. Short of plastic surgery,  eyebrow shaping  can do more to improve someone’s appearance than most other beauty treatments. Whether you are young or old, high or low maintenance, taking the time to properly shape your eyebrows is well worth the effort. The trend for bold brows has made its way from the catwalk to celebrities and now the high street. Eyebrows that have been gently arched visually lift and open up the eye area. This allows more room for  eye shadow  and brings about a more youthful appearance to the face. Keep in mind that extremely arched brows can have the opposite effect and CHIC Beauty Salon & Academy of Beauty 01202 535007 info@chicbeautyuk.co.uk chichbeautyuk.co.uk 70 Heathwood Road, Winton, Bournemouth, BH9 2JZ 146

POWER BROW may look severe. Eyebrows that have been properly shaped bring balance and proportion to the whole face. Facial features can be softened or accentuated just by shaping the brows. In general, larger features look better with a slightly, fuller eyebrows, whereas smaller features are balanced by thinner eyebrows. They say that the eyes are the  window  to the soul. Such an important feature deserves to be framed. Shaped eyebrows do just that. They frame

the eyes and draw attention to them. A well-groomed eyebrow can give a polished look to a person’s appearance. Women who have nicely shaped eyebrows look up together, even without makeup. Eyebrows can be used to create a look or make a statement. Changing the shape of the eyebrows can change the impression that someone gives off. It’s not just women who benefit from nicely shaped eyebrows. A little eyebrow

grooming on a male can mean the difference between a scruffy looking guy and a well groomed man. It’s important not to over shape a man’s eyebrows–a little clean- up is all most of them need. So at this point if you’re now heading toward a mirror with a pair of tweezers in your hand…STOP! Let a professional Beauty Therapist take care of this for you as mistakes are not easily rectified.

HEALTH FITNESS EXPERT Mark Daley Health & Fitness Manager West Hants Club

CALL T MEMBER HE S TEAM TO HIP DAY

01202 519

Mark Daley has been the Health and Fitness Manager at the West Hants Club since 1999.   He started his career in the Health and Fitness industry in 1980 working in sports centres in South East London before moving to Bournemouth.  In the early 90’s he established the Christchurch Doctor Referral Scheme with local GP’s which proved a huge success, allowing patients access to exercise and healthy lifestyle changes as a prescription.   Mark has vast knowledge of sports nutrition which can be adapted to weight management, as well as strength and fitness exercise programming for the beginner to the advanced athlete.   He heads a team of health and fitness specialists at The West Hants who all have their own niche. Folks in the health and fitness industry (the decent ones) have always known the value of fats in the diet. It’s not something we’ve only just discovered either. Vince Gironda, a coach and gym owner from Southern California who probably had more success than anyone with clients back in the 50’s used to suggest high fat, high protein and virtually no carb diets to his many clients. This was decades before the low carb trend and even Dr Atkins. Unfortunately the mainstream establishment spent years ‘educating us’, that fat was the reason we were getting more and more obese, getting more heart disease and becoming type 2 diabetics. And yet the less fat we ate the worse we became. Why? Because we replaced fat with processed carbohydrates like cereals, pasta, bread and white rice, not to mention the cakes and other carb rich sweet stuff. The three main macronutrients are Fat’s, Carbohydrates, and Proteins. There are essential fats, and essential proteins (amino acids) there are no essential carbohydrates. That means we can’t live without fats and protein, we can however live without carbs, and probably healthily if we’re not involved in endurance style exercise regularly. Scientific studies show that the body processes the assorted types of fat differently. The body does not store essential fatty acids (EFA’s) such as Omega 3’s found in fish and flaxseeds as fat in the body. The body uses these fats to make hormones and other chemical reactions that ultimately raise your body’s energy expenditure leading you to actually burn more calories than you would otherwise. I could go on about the amazing properties of Omega 3’s until the cows come home but that’s a whole separate article. Studies show that its not just EFA’s that don’t get stored as body fat, there are two other fats that have incredible health benefits. The first being Monosaturated fat like the type found in nuts, avocados and olive oil which doesn’t appear to increase fat levels either. Technically if you eat energy you will gain weight but this is unlikely because fat is very filling and when added to a low carb diet it is difficult to overeat to the point you gain body fat. The second is Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT) found in Coconut oil which have been shown to promote health, aid brain function and improve body composition. MCT’s don’t enter the cholesterol cycle in the body even though it is 92% saturated fat, it won’t elevate cholesterol levels.

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

THE KINGS ARMS REVIEW The Kings Hotel Christchurch, 18 Castle Street, Christchurch, Dorset BH23 1DT

Sitting adjacent to castle ruins and the River Avon in Christchurch, The King’s Arms is ideally placed a stone’s throw from the high street in the centre of town, and deserves your attention. The boutique hotel has only 20 Georgian-styled rooms yet the restaurant and bar are always popular with returning locals, testament to the quality of food on offer.

15 Mile Sample Menu

The King’s Arms differs from its sisters nearby (The Jetty and the Upper Deck Restaurant) coolly offering a more informal style, and despite also being overseen by chef patron Alex Aiken, its more casual take on fine dining does nothing to minimise the quality or experience.

3 Courses for £15 Chilled Summer Gazpacho Soup Pressed Terrine of Lamb & Mint, Piccalilli, Crusty Sourdough Tossed salad of Goats Cheese, Pickled Vegetables Smoked Fish, Pickled Cucumber, Dorset Salad, Lemon Dressing

Jars of pasta, rice and grains adorn the walls alongside cereals for the next day’s breakfast buffet, and candles hang from the ceiling to create a warm and relaxed atmosphere. The waiting staff are similarly warm, friendly and attentive, and on hand to recommend their favourite dishes. Several menus and specials are currently on offer, ranging from Friday Fizz ‘n’ Chips to a 15 Mile Menu which uses locally sourced ingredients to create 3 courses for £15. After a couple of tasty cocktails at the bar, we ordered from the À la Carte menu and took our seats. We chose the crispy duck salad with Dorset watercress and plum dressing, and Alex Aiken’s twice-baked cheese soufflé. If you do the same I must insist you add the optional smoked haddock; you won’t be disappointed with how the wonderfully light and cheesy soufflé tastes alongside the salty, smoky fish. Next we opted for sea bream alongside fennel, olives and a half baked garlic bulb (I regretted nothing although my partner perhaps did!), and a sirloin steak straight off the Josper grill. Served perfectly medium-rare alongside thick-cut chips, the josper grill added a delicious oaky taste to the tender steak which we can also heartily recommend. We would also suggest ordering accompanying vegetables from the side orders to compliment your meal. To complete our evening, we shared a delicious King’s chocolate brownie with vanilla ice cream which disappeared promptly, and rounded it off with a pair of espresso martinis. Positioned as a more casual approach to fine dining, The King’s Arms was a brilliant surprise for us due to the reasonable cost and fantastic, consistent quality of food, proving that nothing has been lost in the transition. The attentive staff were on hand to help or chat which helped to make our experience more relaxed, and with plenty of other different menus dispersed 150 throughout the week, we are certain to be returning again soon.

FOOD & DRINK

CHILLI OUT THIS SUMMER We may not have scorching summers like Mexico, but with the temperature rising, now is the perfect time to feast on the country’s tasty fare. One person who needs no convincing of this is former MasterChef winner Thomasina Miers. So enamoured is the chef with the Latin American food that she co-founded street food chain Wahaca, and in 2011 presented a Channel 5 series called Mexican Food Made Simple. And while warming your palette with fiery chillies may be the last thing on your mind on a sizzling day, the chef thinks Mexican food is just the tonic. “Mexican food is ideal to eat during the summer,” says Miers, who spent her gap year travelling around the country.“ “Unlike the UK, it’s hot all year round in Mexico and the food has been adapted to suit the hotter weather.”

As well as being cooling, it’s perfect for summer entertaining. “The great thing about Mexican food is that it’s brilliant for sharing,” she says. “Some dishes, like the Pork Pibil, are so easy to make and can beslow-cooked in advance. When it’s ready, the meat is so soft, it justfalls away. “Things like the Summer Slaw don’t take as long to make but are equally tasty. Everyone can pitch in and help with making the food and, once it’s on the table, the meals look really vibrant and appetising.” As well as being tasty, Miers also rates Mexican food for its nutritional benefits. “Mexican food is so healthy,” she says. “Chillies are great for your digestive system, packed full of vitamin C and, on top of that, are delicious.” It’s lucky that Miers, who’s currently working

on a book about chilli peppers, isn’t the only Mexican food lover in her family. “My youngest daughter is four months old, and my eldest is two. They’re just enchanting. Already my eldest is mad about chillies,” she says, laughing. “I did a talk recently and I was discussing the different flavours of chillies. We had a range of Wahaca hot sauces for people to taste and my daughter was at the front, completely hoovering them all up - it’s ridiculous!” If you fancy trying some of Miers’s favourite summer dishes, here are three recipes from her book Wahaca: Mexican Food At Home.

Wahaca is supporting the London MexFest, a fourday celebration of Mexican culture taking place in London from July

RECIPE Pork Pibil

First make the marinade. Warm the spices in a dry frying pan for a few minutes, then grind to a fine powder. Place in a blender with the achiote (if using) and vinegar, onion, garlic, herbs, salt and olive oil, and pulse to start breaking up the achiote. Slowly pour in the orange juice with the motor running to form a smooth paste. Pour about two-thirds of the marinade over the pork, ensuring that it’s thoroughly coated. Refrigerate overnight. Freeze your remaining marinade or keep it fresh for a week in the fridge (and try it with something else, like barbecued chicken). Preheat the oven to 130C/250F/gas mark 1. Transfer the pork and its marinade to a large casserole dish and add the chopped chilli and butter. Bring to simmering point then cover with foil and a tight-fitting lid, and cook as slowly as possible for three to four hours, until the pork is soft and falling apart. Serve chunks of pork in deep bowls with rice or steamed potatoes.

Thomasina’s Tip: You can buy achiote online or from specialist shops. If you prefer your food not too hot, simply leave the chilli out. We use neck end of pork, which is marbled with delicious fat that melts into the sauce. For the tastiest, most tender pork, marinate it the day before cooking.

Ingredients 3kg neck of pork, cut into a few large pieces 1 habanero or Scotch bonnet chilli, deseeded and finely chopped 50g butter For the marinade: 1tsp allspice berries (if unavailable use equal parts ground cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, and black pepper) 2tsp freshly ground cumin seeds ½tsp cloves 1tsp peppercorns 100g achiote paste (optional, see note below) 3tbsp cider vinegar 1 medium onion, coarsely chopped 3 fat garlic cloves, coarsely chopped Large bunch of fresh oregano or 1tsp dried oregano 3 fresh bay leaves 2tbsp sea salt 3tbsp olive oil Juice of 6 oranges (about 450ml)

RECIPE

Scallop and Prawn Aguachile Prepare the scallops by slicing off the tough muscles that run along one side. Cut off the roe (you can save this and make a delicious salad topping, fried with some bacon at a later date). Peel the prawns and use the tip of a sharp knife to remove the black vein that runs along the back. Rinse all the seafood and cut into 1cm dice. Pour the lime juice into a blender, adding half the chilli, the fish sauce, salt, sugar and a 5cm chunk of the cucumber. Blitz the lot, pour in the tequila and taste for seasoning. Depending on the heat of your chilli, you might want to add the remaining half to the blender, or even add another one. You are looking for an extremely hot marinade, albeit one that you can actually taste. Add more fish sauce, salt or sugar if you think it needs it. Transfer the marinade to a bowl. Add the shallot, cherry tomatoes and the seafood and mix together. Cut the rest of the cucumber in half lengthways, scoop out the seeds with a teaspoon and cut the flesh into slices about 5mm thick. Add to the bowl of marinade, then cover and put in the fridge for one to four hours so that the lime juice has a chance to ‘cook’ the seafood. When you are ready to eat, roughly chop the herbs and stir most of these into the Aguachile (the name for what you’ve made!). Ladle modest servings into small bowls and top with the avocado, a scattering of the herbs and serve with either some totopos, nachos, tortilla chips or buttered granary bread on the side.

Ingredients 200g scallops 200g sustainably caught king prawns Juice of 4 limes (about 200ml) 1-2 green chillies, roughly chopped 1tsp fish sauce 1tsp flaky sea salt 2½tbsp demerara sugar 1 small cucumber or ½ a large one 2tbsp reposado tequila (or ordinary tequila) 1 large banana shallot or 4 baby ones, finely sliced About 12 cherry tomatoes, quartered Handful of chervil, coriander or mint (or a combination of all 3) 1 Hass avocado, diced


RECIPE

Mexican Summer Slaw Start by making the dressing. Lightly dry-roast the cumin seeds in a small frying pan for a minute or so to release their flavour, then grind to a powder. In a small bowl, mix the egg yolk, mustard, garlic, cumin, salt, vinegar and lime juice, then gradually whisk in the olive oil. Stir in the sour cream then taste and add more seasoning if needed. Toast the pumpkin seeds in a dry frying pan for a minute or so, until lightly coloured. In a large bowl, mix all the slaw ingredients together, but save some of the pumpkin seeds for garnish. About 10 minutes before you sit down to eat, toss the slaw with the dressing and sprinkle with the reserved pumpkin seeds.

Thomasina’s Tip: Try the summer slaw with slow-cooked meats like the Pork Pibil.

Ingredients 1tbsp pumpkin seeds ¼ firm white cabbage, finely sliced Small head of baby gem lettuce, finely sliced 6 large radishes, finely sliced 1 small red onion, finely sliced 1 large carrot, sliced into matchsticks ½ red chilli, finely sliced 2tbsp chopped fresh mint 1tbsp chopped fresh coriander For the dressing: 1tsp cumin seeds 1 egg yolk ½tsp Dijon mustard 1 small garlic clove, crushed Large pinch of sea salt 2tsp red wine vinegar Juice of ½ a lime 170ml extra virgin olive oil 1 tbsp sour cream
