SOMETHING SPECIAL FOR THE OVER 55S Thursday 3rd October saw the launch of the brand new show home at Homefield Park, a range of luxury two and three bedroom homes exclusively for the over 55s. Found in Winkton, Christchurch, Homefield Park is located at the former Homefield School site and has been developed by over 55s specialist, Platinum Skies. HOUSE was invited to a sneak preview of the show home where we heard about the exciting things in store for the development. The range of houses and luxury apartments, that Platinum Skies has designed, are stunning and something

special in the making. The show home we visited is one of their uniquely designed three bedroom detached houses and is extremely impressive. The attention to detail is extraordinary, from the layout of each room to each individual fitting that has been selected. Managing Director, David Hines, spoke with us about his personal thoughts of their new homes; “Here are Platinum Skies we are proud with what we have developed at Homefield Park. Not only are the homes wonderful but the landscaping around them is truly stunning. One of the big things that

makes Homefield Park and our future developments different is that we offer both houses and apartments for the over 55s. Other major developers offer only apartments, which a lot of customers have told us have told us they don’t want. “ David went on to show us how all the homes they have designed have been crafted to support a range of lifestyles. For examples one of the unique aspects of their houses is that is has been designed for complete ground floor living. Their large downstairs cloakrooms are

Bournecoast say that the number of households in England is set to rise by a 20% over the next 20 years. The Financial Times points out that households will rise to a staggering 27m in that time. This will create colossal demand for new homes which is unlikely to be met, according to the first long-term projections based on data from the last census and published in the FT recently. Approximately a quarter of a million homes will be needed each year to house the growing

population says a report by the Cambridge Centre for Housing and Planning Research and the Town and Country Planning Association. However, the highest demand will be in the south - nearly 70% - with 25% of that figure in London alone, according to the report. Currently only around 100,000 new homes are being built each year which is the lowest construction rate during peacetime since the beginning of the century. This is less than half of what is currently required.

Over the course of the next 20 years that would mean a shortfall of 2.4m homes that will be required. The research is based on data from the 2011 census which highlighted that the population of the UK was significantly higher than previous projections had predicted.

HELP TO BUY SCHEME LENDING A HELPING HAND House takes a look at the second phase of a new government scheme aimed at helping first time buyers gain a foothold in an often arduous property market, following comments from Prime Minister David Cameron, who announced at the end of September, “I’m not going to stand back while people’s aspirations to get on the housing ladder are being trashed”. ‘Help to Buy 2’ is injecting £12 billion into two unique incentives that look to both reduce the deposit amount needed to be raised by buyers, as well as increasing the ease of getting a mortgage through government reassurances to lenders. The schemes reduce the risk to mortgage providers, especially when dealing with applicants with a poor credit history.

8

The first element, known as a ‘Mortgage Guarantee’, offers government assurances to lenders that repayments will be made, ensuring it is easier for borrowers to secure a mortgage. The programme requires prospective buyers to raise a deposit of just 5% towards the purchase of a property, with the other 95%

market is beginning to show the early signs of a burgeoning recovery. This follows recent figures from market analysts Hometrack who revealed property prices in the UK rose by 0.5% between August and September, the highest monthly increase witnessed since May 2007.

coming from a qualified lender. The standard mortgage application process is no different as the majority of the changes go on behind the scenes between government and lender. The scheme is available for all houses costing under £600,000, as long as it is your only property and is solely available to houses in England. Buyers are further assisted by the second incentive, an ‘Equity Loan’. Again, a deposit of 5% of the property price must be raised by the buyer. This is subsequently matched by a 20% loan from the government, with the rest being topped up by mortgage lenders. Therefore, in order to purchase a £200,000 house a personal deposit of £10,000, would be matched by a government loan of £40,000, with the final £150,000 being added by a bank or building society. The requirements to qualify for an equity loan are the same as a Mortgage Guarantee, and the loans are interest free for the first five years. In the 6th year, a fee of 1.75% of the loan’s value will be applied. After this, the fee will increase every year with the calculations being based on the retail price index plus 1%.

For both schemes, the buyers credit history is scrutinised and the granting of the mortgage remains at the discretion of the lender. However, with a host of major banks and building societies, including RBS, Natwest, Halifax and Lloyds, now signed up to the policy, the chances of buyers securing a mortgage are greatly heightened under the new scheme. Financial forecasters are uncertain as to what interest rate buyers will be offered, however, it is widely believed that borrowers under the Eq-

uity Loan scheme will not receive rates as competitive as those which would be given to someone who personally put forward a deposit of 20%, with the general consensus amongst forecasters being a fixed rate comparable to someone who raised a 10% deposit themselves. Many critics, including Business Secretary Vince Cable and the Labour party, are sceptical of the timing of the policy’s implementation. They believe that the move could cause another housing bubble situation, just as the

Despite a great deal of furore and political point scoring surrounding the launch of the policy, no one will be able to measure its efficacy until guarantees are first agreed next January. If the policy does achieve its objectives, it will offer the opportunity to thousands of buyers to purchase their own homes, which would have previously been an impossibility to raise such a large amount of capital alone, whilst contemporaneously driving property prices up with hopes of stoking another housing pricing boom.

SWEET DREAM STYLE Creating a beautiful boudoir needn’t be just a dream. Designers share their bedroom style secrets with Gabrielle Fagan, so you can create a cosy retreat this autumn.

JOHN LEWIS COLLECTION

Chilly autumn days make us yearn to be cosy and warm, and the bedroom’s the ideal place to conjure a snug sanctuary in your home. After all, this is the space where we retreat not merely to sleep, but to recharge, relax and rest. And to be truly successful, it should reflect our taste in its furniture and pander to our desire for comfort and pampering in its furnishings. “This season, my bedroom’s been inspired by fashion and the classic white shirt,” says Julie Hall, head of home design at bed linen specialists, Bedeck. “Pure white and cream cotton linens are calming and tranquil, and they give a timeless, elegant look. I like the way pale shades create tone and texture, and can be easily accessorised with a luxurious faux fur or chunky knit throw to cosy up under on a dark, winter night.” Relaxed elegance is at the heart of the decor trend for bedrooms this autumn, she says, and followers of 14

“Calm, warmth and serenity are essential for a great bedroom,” says Claire Hornby, creative stylist for Barker & Stonehouse.

JOHN LEWIS COLLECTION Pure bedroom from the new bedroom collection at John Lewis of Hungerford, priced from £5,000.

“A great bedroom should feel like a sanctuary, which is aesthetically pleasing yet functional, and should contain thoughtfully selected pieces that mirror your personality,” says Julie Paul, head of interior design at OKA. “My personal style is slightly eclectic, veering towards English/French heritage. I like a soft palette and love the muted shades characteristic of Swedish interiors, which work so well in our sharp English light.” Style tips: Aim for a mix of great textures and colours, and always include stand-out pieces, like a striking lamp or a bright throw.

“I have a reclaimed wooden floor, walls painted in Farrow & Ball Light Blue, a linen button-back headboard, mahogany wardrobes, pieces I’ve collected while travelling in India, and a kilim rug and cushions from Turkey.” Style tips: If you have a small bedroom, she advises, avoid a feature wall or patterned paper, use a pale colour for the floor, and have a large mirror to reflect light.

My dream would be a built-in vanity unit so I could dispense with my dressing table.”

and those from further afield. Many of our buyers look for a traditional family home of a good size, which most of the properties in Talbot Woods seem to offer. Also appealing are the large level gardens which are perfect for families. The location is also suitable for

“Whilst the indications are that interest rates should remain low for the immediate future, buyers seem to be confident and keen to invest in family homes in the area. Properties priced realistically continue to sell extremely well and we see a constant demand from prospective purchasers for properties in the Talbot Woods area.” Due to improved market conditions there has become a shortage of family homes for sale in Talbot Woods. For a free, no obligation market appraisal please contact Jacqui Harper on 01202 708888.

MANAGERS CHOICE

WHAT A TRANSFORMATION!

Sometimes the front of a property does not tell the whole story of what lies beyond, and that is certainly the case here.

A relatively modest front

appearance belies the surprisingly spacious interior, which has been superbly extended and renovated, and who would have thought that the south facing rear garden is so large and level! Margaret says her favourite feature of the house is the way it has been extended to create a super living space. The large lounge and living room, divided by folding doors, open up to a spectacular 38’ long room, with skylights in part for extra light. There are folding doors out to the garden too, so the whole room can be opened up with a view of the garden. The kitchen/breakfast room should not disappoint either, with its polished granite worktops and Neff integrated appliances. The ground floor is completed by a bedroom and adjacent shower room. On the first floor, bedroom 1 is a lovely through room, with double aspect windows, and there are 2 further bedrooms and luxury bathroom. Great attention has been paid to the details and the property has a high specification in terms of technology, with TV points in nearly every room, audio system throughout, hard wired Ethernet, cabled for BT and Virgin broadband, and hardwired smoke detectors. The finish is super quality, including French polished American oak interior doors and frames. Drive up and through the electrically operated gates, and you find yourself in a large parking area leading to the double garage with twin doors. There is so much to say about this superb property, but a viewing is the only way to really appreciate it.

FEATURES • Extensively renovated with great attention to detail • High technology specification • Extended to add super lofty extra living space • 4 Bedrooms, including gf bedroom and shower

• 3 Ff bedrooms and luxury bathroom with spa bath • Stylish kitchen/breakfast room with neff appliances • Large south facing rear garden • Secure gates to double garage + parking

CRAFTY WAYS TO A CALM HOME Mark the start of autumn by getting organised at home. Joanna Gosling shows Gabrielle Fagan three easy-peasy projects to bring order and light into your home.

1

WINE CRATE DESK

It's often the small things that can make life stressful - whether it's misplaced keys, overlooked bills or dark, dull corners that seem to attract clutter. Instead of just daydreaming about having a calm, perfect-place-for-everything home, journalist and mother-of-three Joanna Gosling decided to put her thinking cap on. She came up with a series of simple-to-follow projects, all of which now feature in her new book Home Made Simple: Stylish, Practical Makes For Living And Giving. She shows how, with a little effort and some basic DIY, you can create and furnish a well-equipped corner for sorting household finances (or enjoying hobbies), funky lights, and even conjure an attractive home for those wandering keys. 40

"I love making things for the home because it saves money, you can make nicer things than you can buy, and there's the bonus of the 'I made it' satisfaction every time you look at it," Gosling enthuses. All the materials used in her projects are inexpensive - old wine boxes are transformed into a desk, storage and a key box, for instance. "As, like most people, I don't have enough time to sit and spend hours crafting something perfectly, my mantra is 'minimum effort, maximum return'," she says. "I've worked out the quickest, simplest way to do things that are useful, decorative and bring character to rooms." Follow three of her projects for a bright, business-like corner in your home...

WINE CRATE DESK

"I love this desk. It's such a practical design, with its internal storage, big surface area and castors, which make it easy to move around," says Gosling. "It's a perfect work space for anything, from writing to crafting. 2

"If you can wire a plug, then you can make one of these brilliant lights very easily, and they're so versatile and useful," says Gosling. "Make the cable as long as you like and, with a couple of hooks on the ceiling, you can fix them to light up anywhere in a room. You can position them high or low, as you want."

HOW TO...

MAKE A PHOTO KEY BOX

"Giving your keys a home where you can stash and retrieve them in an instant is pretty good for stress levels," says Gosling. "This is a lovely place also to display photos and remind yourself of happy memories and, when closed, it doesn't look like a key box, which is good for security."

YOU WILL NEED:

1

• Three-bottle wine box with a sliding lid Source from wine merchants who often sell these cheaply as gift packaging, or search for them online • Emulsion or eggshell paint • Drill • Eight 1.2mm x 17mm screw hooks • Bradawl • Photos or images for the front • Spray acrylic sealant (optional); double-sided tape

WINE CRATE DESK

If you can wire a plug, then you can make one of these brilliant lights very easily...

METHOD: Remove the rope handle, if your box has one. Leave the unfinished pale wood as it is or paint. If you’re going to hang it, drill four small holes in the corners of the box for screwing it onto the wall. Mark drill points 4cm up (or down) and in from the sides. Use a pencil to mark evenly spaced dots where the screw hooks for the keys should go. Do a row of three, then a row of two, then another row of three, and stagger the hooks so that the keys don’t bunch on top of each other. Pierce each hole using a bradawl and screw in the hooks. The back of the box is thin wood, so screw the hook through until the point is just poking through the back.

FABRIC CABLE LIGHTS

Choose photos with a sealed finish, or use an acrylic sealant, to go on the front. Fix to lid with double-sided tape.

INTERVIEW

Sarah Beeny first found fame on Channel 4’s Property Ladder in 2001, and she’s been a mainstay of the broadcaster’s property programme portfolio ever since. She also runs a property development company with her husband, Graham Swift, as well as the dating website MySingleFriend. com. She talks about telling people what to do, never having regrets and her love of history documentaries

like house prices to bounce back up, but I don’t think long term that bouncing back up is a good thing. Being at a constant, sensible level is much better than yo-yoing all the time. But mortgages are still hard to get in a lot of situations. HAVE YOU EVER REGRETTED A PROJECT?

WHAT CAN WE LOOK OUT FOR FROM THE NEW SERIES? I’ve just finished doing the voiceover for the first show, and it’s really fun, really glossy. When you finally see the finished show, it’s a rollercoaster ride. There’s something in it for everyone, I think. It’s got a bit if you just like looking at gorgeous houses, and it’s got something if you want practical information about how you should extend or do sensible improvements to your home. Obviously, a sideline of that is you have a house that ends up being worth more on the market because it looks nice and it works well. ARE YOU EVER SURPRISED BY PEOPLE’S PLANS FOR THEIR HOMES? Yeah, a little bit. I guess what’s really exciting about this entire series is that if you can’t afford to buy a massive house or don’t want to have a massive mortgage, you can take a much less exciting house and transform it, and you end up with a load of equity in your home without the debt. You’re living somewhere that really works for you. IT ALSO MEANS YOU’RE LIVING IN A UNIQUE PROPERTY Completely. This way you end up with a house that absolutely fits you and your lifestyle and your family. I guess one of the things I always trying to encourage is how important it is to future-proof a house, especially in a family. Flexibility is the key. You need a house that can fit younger children and older children with the smallest amount of changes.

Five minutes with...

Sarah Beeny DO YOU GET FRUSTRATED WHEN PROPERTY-OWNERS IGNORE YOUR ADVICE?

Yeah, definitely. It’s a bit frustrating, but ultimately it’s their house. A lot of people do take stuff on board, but others don’t. I’m just there to suggest it though, so if they don’t want to do it, that’s fine. But often, people just haven’t thought of something before, so I’ll suggest something, and they’ll go, “Oh my goodness, I hadn’t thought of that”, and then do it. That’s really cool, everyone’s a winner. THERE ARE LOTS OF OTHER PROPERTY PROGRAMMES OUT THERE. DO YOU WATCH ANY OF THEM? I’m going to be honest, I watch hardly any telly. And no, I don’t watch any other property programmes at all! That’s an awful thing to say isn’t it? In a minute you’ll ask me a question about one of them and I won’t be able to answer it!

NOT AT ALL. WE JUST WONDERED IF YOU EVER LOOKED ON IN ENVY? No. I have, over the years, seen a few long-standing property shows like Grand Designs and Location Location Location, but we just don’t watch any telly in our house really. YOU’RE PROBABLY TOO BUSY. YOU ALWAYS SEEM TO HAVE A NEW PROJECT ON THE GO Yeah, it is very manic. And when we do watch telly it tends to be Mock the Week. Actually, BBC Four have amazing history documentaries which I love as well. HAVE YOU SEEN ANY SIGNS OF A PROPERTY MARKET RECOVERY? I’m worried about the areas where there are slightly mad bubbles going on. And there are a few areas in cities where you think; ‘Really?’. The prices are just rocketing, and that is not good. But most of the country is fairly constant and steady. I think a lot of people would

I guess I’m not a big fan of regretting things, there’s no point in regretting something once it’s done. We’ve always bought really good things. Actually, some things were really silly things to buy, but you just think ‘You know what, move onto the next thing’. And you learn new things with every property you’re involved with. So even if it wasn’t a clever thing to buy or you did the wrong thing with it, you know that next time you’ll make a better decision. WHAT IS YOUR PROUDEST ACHIEVEMENT? Rise Hall because it was a mission impossible really. Not so much with the refurbishment, but to make it have a reason for standing. I think when Graham and I look at it, the thing we’re proudest of is how it’s now a very profitable business. I think that’s exciting not because we want loads of cash - because everybody wants that! - but because Rise Hall earning a good profit means it protects itself for the future. WHAT ELSE DO YOU HAVE IN THE PIPELINE? There’s this series, I’ve got a new DIY book coming out in the spring, and we’ve filmed a Christmas special at Rise Hall, which is really enjoyable. It’s about the history of Christmas and why we have certain customs, which has been fascinating to research and film. It’s all a bit tongue-in-cheek. We do lots and lots of dressing up, and so do the children. It’s just a really fun, light show telling us all why we do the silly things we do at Christmas. That’ll be on this December.

A dream home and a good investment. What have you got to lose? Well, if you got a critical illness and couldn’t pay the mortgage, there’s the house, the deposit and your credit rating. And that adds up to a lot of time, money and effort. For example:

8½ years

£130,156

£26,031

is the average time it takes a first time buyer to save a deposit

is the average cost of a first home

is the average deposit put down by a first time buyer (£56,758 in London)

That’s why it pays to protect yourself with critical illness cover. It pays out a lump sum if you’re diagnosed with a critical illness, allowing you to concentrate on recovering instead of worrying about bills. And if you have a family or a partner, life cover could make sure they were looked after financially if you died.

What next? Talk to Debbie J Boyes Professional Mortgage Advisors. We'll help you identify your individual protection needs and guide you through the various types of cover available to make sure you get the right cover at the right price.

Exciting market opportunities for Homeowners and Developers

The construction sector is now one of the first industries to see the green shoots of recovery. With the Government’s plans for reforming the planning system and their introduction of the Help to Buy scheme – it is an opportune time to extend your home or become a property developer. With additional factors such as quick build times, the increase in house prices and house sales in the South of England, the more flexible approach taken by some of the new 10-year warranty providers in the market and the relaxing of planning legislation on home extensions – the potential for growth is clear. Property Prices and Sales Increasing The property market is starting to pick up. The Office of National Statistics shows that house prices in some parts of England are higher now than at the height of the economic boom. Approximately £80 million worth of property is either for sale or has changed hands in recent months in Sandbanks alone. Many properties have been sold, only to be demolished to make way for new concrete and glass homes that are designed to maximise every last square inch of their plot. With one local estate agency confirming sales of £24 million in the last month alone, there is a clear case for optimism. Government Reforms – Making Planning Easier The market picking up has dovetailed with the introduction of major reforms to the planning system with the introduction of the Localism Act 2011 and the National Planning Policy Framework. The Government has stressed that the planning 86

system should work proactively to support economic growth without “unnecessary bureaucracy”. A number of reforms are now contained in the Growth and Infrastructure Act 2013 including allowing planning applications to be decided by the Planning Inspectorate, if the local authority has a track record of poor performance; and allowing planning obligations relating to affordable housing to be renegotiated to make a development economically viable again. A number of other announcements on planning reform have also been made, including increasing permitted development rights to allow shops and existing agricultural buildings to be converted into homes; and to make reforms to the operation of the community infrastructure levy. Following recommendations to make the planning appeals process faster and more transparent, reforms were introduced from 1 October 2013 that mean that appeal decisions can be taken sooner, whilst ensuring the process remains fair. Where appeals are allowed, development will be able to commence sooner. The Government has also introduced a relaxation on the rules for householders on the size of extension they can build without planning permission – changing it from 3m to 6m long.


Help to Buy Scheme - £3.5 billion Additional Investment in Helping People into Home Ownership The Help to Buy equity loan scheme will provide £3.5 billion of additional investment to help people into home ownership - helping up to 74,000 home buyers. The government will provide an equity loan of up to 20% of the value of a new build home, interest free for the first 5-years, which can be repaid at any time or when the home is sold. The eligibility criteria for equity loans will be widened to ensure the maximum number of people can benefit. The maximum home value will be £600,000 and there will be no income cap constraint. The scheme is open not only to first time buyers but also to all those looking to move up the housing ladder. The Help to Buy mortgage guarantee scheme will increase the supply of high loan-to-value mortgages by offering a government guarantee to lenders who provide mortgages to people with a deposit of between 5% and 20%.

HOME IMPROVEMENTS

MAINTAINING OLDER DOORS & WINDOWS AIDS ENERGY EFFICIENCY RICHMOND Home Improvement Co says that by simply ensuring your windows and doors are properly maintained, you can improve your energy efficiency this autumn and winter. The energy efficiency standards of modern double glazing are now much improved, “….but that’s not to say that double glazed windows and doors installed more than a couple of years ago are no longer fit for purpose, “ says Allan Tofield, owner of Dorset based Richmond Home Improvement Co. “It would be nice if everyone could afford to install windows and doors which meet the latest Building Regulations Approved Document L, but of course that is not feasible,” he added. “Windows and doors installed within the past 10 years are still well able to keep out drafts, noise pollution and the weather from outside – provided they are properly maintained. Now is the time of year for some easy maintenance tasks to be undertaken. “Simple things such as lubricating

the rubber gaskets with a silicone grease or light oil will help maintain the seal on an opening window and reduce heat loss and noise. “Maintaining or replacing worn out hinges on double glazed windows, can avoid unsightly gaps, drafts and rainwater ingress. “If people carry out simple maintenance there will be less of a need for them to replace their older windows and doors to lengthen their lifespan.” Of course this will not bring them up to current

levels of efficiency with the modern materials that are now being used but it will reduce drafts and help to keep those ever increasing heating bills to a minimum. Allan said, “We can also carry out upgrades for old windows and doors by incorporating the latest double glazing technology and to significantly improve the efficiency of the older window and door frames.” For advice on keeping the warmth in and the cold out contact your local double glazing expert says Allan.

Richmond can provide help and advice on how to improve your office or home, so contact their friendly team on:

FINANCE

SHOULD YOU INVEST IN... WINE?

MONEY FOR NOTHING The idea is simple - sign up to a cashback site such as Quidco. com or TopCashback.co.uk, then the next time you need to make an online purchase, go to the retailer through the cashback site, and you will get money back on anything you buy. Essentially, it’s money for nothing. But what’s the catch? Cashback sites earn their revenue through advertising, sponsorship and commission, relying on the lure of free money to bump up their page hits and grow their business. Even apps are getting in on the act - Shopitize allows you to scan your receipts with your smartphone, claiming money off a variety of groceries (recent examples include 50p cashback on Colgate Advanced White toothpaste, and £1 off Little Dish Chicken Risotto). This money is deposited in your online or app account, and when you have accumulated £5, you can redeem it via PayPal, bank account or cheque. Quidco and TopCashback have recently launched similar apps, all free to download. Quidco’s app has a clever feature which allows you to earn between 5p and 50p just for ‘checking in’ to a store, and will even tell you where your nearest participating retailer is.

However, the majority of cashback deals require you to spend money to make money, and it can be easy to get carried away. Don’t be tempted to sign on to a contract you don’t need just for the sake of the deal. Cashback sites work best when you are already planning a purchase, and should be used as part of your general research into finding the best price. As a general rule, the more serious purchases will yield the best cashback, so if you are in the market for a new broadband contract, or insurance product, you may be eligible for a good deal. Quidco recently ran a limited offer of £140 cashback plus a £25 M&S voucher when clients signed up to Sky+. Meanwhile, TopCashback offers £50.50 cashback on all 24-month iPhone 5 contracts with EE.

CACHE YOUR CASH Before you devote yourself to the cashback lifestyle, it’s important to be clued up. Yes, there are savings to be made, and it’s great to collect an extra £5 here and there, but at what cost?

While many sites have a minimum £5 threshold for withdrawals, savvy shoppers could be accumulating this amount every couple of weeks, so it’s worth keeping an eye on your balance.

Cashback sites are a relatively new phenomena, and in the current economic climate no start-up business model is completely recession-proof.

It is also important to ensure your cashback is being tracked properly. Cashback sites use cookies to cache your purchasing data and calculate your rewards. If you turn off cookies or fail to log in to the website properly, you may lose out on money you expected to get back.

If your cashback site suddenly goes into administration, you can lose all the money you’ve accumulated, so make an effort to withdraw from your account as often as you can.

Most importantly, always remember to shop around. While the idea of getting money back is extremely tempting, it may be blinding you to another deal on the market which is better suited to your needs. Whether you’re using cashback to save money on a big purchase, or as part of your weekly grocery shop, it can help bring in a little bit of much-needed pocket money. And in the words of one famous cashback affiliate: every little helps.

We Brits love our wine. By 2014, it is estimated that the UK will consume 151.5 million cases of wine, making us the biggest importers in the world. But you don’t have to drink your wine to enjoy it. In 2000, a 6ltr bottle of Screaming Eagle Cabernet 1992 sold for a whopping 500,000 dollars, while a 1787 Chateau d’Yquem became the world’s most expensive white wine when it was bought for 100,000 dollars in 2006. Even the Government is getting in on the act selling £44,000-worth of wine this month in a bid to make its £3 million cellar self-funding. Clearly we are not talking about supermarket prices here. European Fine Wines currently offers investments ranging from £50 (for a single bottle of La Petite Eglise 2000 Bordeaux) to £8,500 (for 12 bottles of Haut Brion 2009 Bordeaux). While industry experts claim that fine wine is one of the most low-risk and enduring asset classes, it is all about timing. Last year the market stalled, with some top bottles losing up to 35% of their value, while the three leading wine auction houses reported average losses of 17% in 2011. However, The Wine Investment Fund has predicted that the fine wine index(the Liv-ex 100) will grow by 14% over the year ahead, following a strong January growth of 2.8%. Inflation-beating returns? I’ll drink to that.

ASK THE LETTINGS EXPERT Sharon Canning Move On Rentals

Visit the new Karndean showroom today, now open at Carpet Barn

What happens when a tenant dies whilst in a Tenancy Agreement My father signed an Assured Shorthold tenancy agreement (as a tenant) one month ago, for a period of six months, and sadly passed away last week. Nobody in the family wishes to take over the tenancy; we just wish to end it as soon as possible. I have read through the agreement and I cannot find anything specific with regards to a tenant passing away. Surely we can just hand the keys back and let the landlord let the property to someone else?

Firstly, condolences on your loss. The fact your father has died does not automatically bring a tenancy to an end. It will transfer to the personal representatives of your father’s estate. This is because the Tenancy Agreement is a contract and a contract does not come to an end when a contracting party dies. For example if your father had a debt on a credit card then he would still be liable for repaying the debt from his estate (providing there were sufficient funds in the estate to do so). You may also want to investigate whether the deposit has been protected in one of the tenancy deposit schemes. If it has not then the estate may have a claim against the Landlord for failure to comply with the tenancy deposit legislation. I would suggest speaking to the landlord and negotiating an early surrender, perhaps offering to cover any additional costs for finding a new tenant may help. If there is any rent outstanding the landlord will use the deposit to cover this. In my experience most landlords are sympathetic in these rare occasions.

FANCY A BIT ON THE SIDE?

THIS WEEK: How to turn wasted outdoor space into a flexible living area with a side-return extension If you live in a Victorian or Edwardian terraced house or ground-floor flat, you could be hiding an unlikely asset; the side return, the narrow outdoor strip of land created by one room (or rooms) usually the kitchen or the bathroom - jutting into it. The problem with this side return is that it’s too narrow to do much with as a garden, so it often just becomes a murky walk-way, a dumping ground or - even worse - nothing. But it doesn’t have to be this way; think ‘inside’ not ‘outside’ and incorporate the side return into your home by building an extension. It’s very likely this decision will increase the financial value of your house, but even if it doesn’t, you’re still guaranteed a fantastic lifestyle return with the resulting larger, lighter and generally more appealing room.

On ‘designated land’, which includes conservation areas, side extensions are not permitted development. You can get an idea of what you can and can’t do at www. planningportal.gov.uk, where there’s an Extensions Guide, but check with your local council if in doubt.

To expand your side-return, you remove the external wall that runs along it, fit a steel beam in its place, extend the roof and end wall, and build a new external wall at the boundary of your garden with your neighbour’s house or garden. Skylights are usually fitted in the new roof, which flood the extension with light. Because the extension is (in most cases) built next to the boundary with your neighbour’s house or garden, you’ll have to comply with the Party Wall Act, which governs shared boundaries. Under the act, you must serve a notice on the adjoining neighbour, informing them about the work at least two months before starting it, although it can begin sooner if they agree. If they object or don’t respond within 14 days, you’ll have to employ a party wall surveyor, who’ll draw up an agreement between you and them. The neighbour may want to employ a different surveyor and you’ll have to pay for this as well.

PRODUCT OF THE WEEK

The architect you use for the extension will be able to help with the planning process. They will also be able to project-manage the build and the contractors, if you want them to, or you can employ the professionals and contractors you need separately, or use a building company that’ll organise everything for you.

The good news is that you often don’t need planning permission to extend into the side return. Most, although not all, houses have permitted development (PD) rights, which means you can extend them without

planning, providing the extension conforms to the PD rules and regulations. For example, a side extension must be single storey, with a maximum height of 4m, or a maximum eaves height of 3m if within 2m of a boundary.

Side-return extensions generally take around two to three months to build and cost around £25,000 to £70,000. So yes, it’s a big investment, but think of the expanded family kitchen or the luxurious bathroom you will gain, and you’ll realise it’s a price worth paying.

HOW-TO TIP DEEP STEAM

3-IN-1 HAND TRUCK Moving heavy or bulky DIY or garden tools and materials is a pain, especially if you have a long garden path, poor access or can’t park nearby. But luckily, this great-value 3-in-1 Hand Truck (£69.99, Screwfix) makes it much easier. You can use it as a vertical sack truck, an angled sack truck or a flat trolley and it’s easy to change between them, depending on what you’re carrying. The truck can hold up to 200kg and although it’s made of sturdy metal, it’s also lightweight and has big wheels that are easy to manoeuvre. Don’t risk putting your back out - let the Hand Truck take the strain! 118

The quickest way to strip wallpaper is with an electric steam stripper, which is like a big kettle - you fill it with water and when the water boils, it produces steam, which travels along a tube and out through a steam plate. You press the plate to the wall, holding it there until the wallpaper is soft enough to be scraped off. The trick with using a steam stripper is to hold the steam plate against the wall with one hand and scrape the wall with a wallpaper stripper with the other, stripping the area you’ve just steamed.

ELEC-TRICK IN THE HOME

Some energy saving tips & tricks from local business Elec-trick.

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.

At Elec-trick we strive to give an excellent service at a fair and reasonable price. Much of our work comes from personal recommendation and we have managed to get quite a relationship with many elderly customers who I have been told feel we are fair and do our very best to do what we say we will do. Here’s some free advice for the coming Winter months.

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.

INEXPENSIVE ENERGY SOLUTIONS 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, as they can self-certify that their work complies with the law. 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.

FAST AND FREE ELECTRICITY Cutting back unnecessary energy use is an easy way to keep your hard earned money in your pocket. Here are some suggestions you can do at home, at absolutely no cost to you. Let the sunshine in. Open drapes and let the sun heat your home for free (get them closed again at sundown so they help insulate). Rearrange your rooms. Move your furniture around so you are sitting near interior walls - exterior walls and older windows are likely to be drafty. Don’t sit in the draft. Keep it shut. Traditional fireplaces are an energy loser - it’s best not to use them because they pull heated air out of the house and up the chimney. When not in use, make absolutely sure the damper is closed. Before closing the damper, make sure that you don’t have any smoldering embers. If you decide not to use a fireplace, then block off the chimney with a piece of rigid insulation from the hardware store that fits snugly into the space (dampers don’t shut fully without some leaking). Eliminate wasted energy. Turn off lights in unoccupied rooms. Unplug that spare refrigerator in the garage if you don’t truly need it - this seemingly convenient way to keep extra drinks cold adds 10-25 percent to your electric bill. Turn off kitchen and bath-ventilating fans after they’ve done their job - these fans can blow out a house-full of heated air if inadvertently left on. Keep your fireplace damper closed unless a fire is burning to prevent up to 8 percent of your furnace-heated air from going up the chimney. Shorten showers. Simply reducing that lingering time by a few minutes can save hundreds of gallons of hot water per month for a family of four. Showers account for 2/3 of your water heating costs. Cutting your showers in half will reduce your water heating costs by 33 percent.

130

Choose ENERGY STAR® Products. Replace incandescent light bulbs with ENERGTY STAR compact fluorescent light bulbs, especially in high-use light fixtures. Compact fluorescent lights use 75 percent less energy than incandescent lights. Wrap the hot water tank with jacket insulation. This is especially valuable for older water heaters with little internal insulation. Be sure to leave the air intake vent uncovered when insulating a gas water heater. Savings up to 10 percent on water heating costs.

UNDERFLOOR HEATING MATS Use appliances efficiently. Do only full loads when using your dishwasher and clothes washer. Use the cold water setting on your clothes washer when you can. Using cold water reduces your washer’s energy use by 75 percent. Be sure to clean your clothes dryer’s lint trap after each use. Use the moisture-sensing automatic drying setting on your dryer if you have one. Put your computer and monitor to sleep. Most computers come with the power management features turned off. On computers using Windows, open your power management software and set it so your computer goes to sleep if you’re away from your machine for 5 to 15 minutes. Those who use Macintosh computers look for the setting in your Control Panels called “Energy Saver” and set it accordingly. When you’re done using your computer, turn it off (see next tip). Do not leave it in sleep mode overnight as it is still drawing a small amount of power. Plug “leaking energy” in electronics. Many new TVs, VCRs, chargers, computer peripherals and other electronics use electricity even when they are switched “off.” Although these “standby losses” are only a few watts each, they add up to more than 50 watts in a typical home that is consumed all the time. If possible, unplug electronic devices and chargers that have a block-shaped transformer on the plug when they are not in use. For computer scanners, printers and other devices that are plugged into a power strip, simply switch off the power strip after shutting down your computer. The best way to minimize these losses of electricity is to purchase ENERGY STAR® products.

The energy efficient ribbon under floor heating mats are ideal for all applications from single rooms to full house heating. As a primary heating source the flat ribbon creates additional space by negating the need for radiators. The amorphous metal under floor heating is the newest technology on the market which has in turn super ceded other heating technologies. Due to the advanced engineering and robust design the AHT underfloor heating ribbons come with a 15 year warranty compared to 10 years from its nearest rivals. The flat ribbon under floor heating is so slim line it can be fitted directly under any floor covering including carpet as a primary heat system. The flat ribbons are wide and close together meaning that they do not need to heat up to high temperatures, in fact the ribbons can heat a room with working temperatures as low as 26 – 28 degrees. It can be installed under carpet, laminate, wood, slate, ceramic, stone, vinyl, travetine. as the only heat source.

GARDENING TIPS:

GREEN THERAPY We all feel better after an hour or two of gardening; the fresh air, the exercise and the simple joy of being surrounded by beautiful flowers and the fruits of our labour. But for some people, the benefits go even further. “A garden can help people living with dementia,” says Jeremy Hughes, Alzheimer’s Society chief executive. “They can enjoy socialising, as well as taking part in physical activity and stimulating the senses, all of which greatly improve their wellbeing.” The regularity of nurturing plants on a daily basis also adds structure to the day of those living with dementia, while being involved in gardening activities like sowing seeds and watering plants gives a better sense of control, the Society explains. The cycle of sowing, nurturing, growing and harvesting plants, vegetables and flowers helps give a better perception of their lives. Also, the delicate nature of some gardening activities can help to maintain 136

or improve fine motor skills and increase spatial awareness. Garden activities can also help those with dementia talk about their past lives by reminding them about similar activities when they were younger, for example what plants, flowers or vegetables they used to grow. Research shows that gardening can also help the wellbeing of younger people with early onset dementia. “Younger people with dementia want and need activities which are stimulating, fulfilling and productive because they are still seeking activities which mimic the workplace model,” says Jill Walton, support group co-ordinator at the Frontotemporal Dementia Support Group (www.ftdsg. org), which provides support and information to carers of young people with dementia. Thrive, a national charity supporting horticultural therapy, holds a da-

tabase of around 900 garden projects in the UK and can put you in touch with a project in your local area (www. thrive.org.uk or 0118 988 5688). Most Thrive gardeners are referred by social services or through a professional such as their GP or care professional, but others start at a project through their own initiative and their place may be funded by family and friends. These larger projects are clearly wonderful, but for many people, gardening at home is where the real therapy lies. Indeed, recent research by Alzheimer’s Society, in partnership with Homebase, discovered 83% of people with dementia want to live in their own homes for as long as possible; so how can you create a home garden, or modify an existing one, to give people with dementia the greatest therapy? Thrive recommends straightforward way-finding: the layout of paths - essentially a loop - could take the

visitor on a journey and return them to the starting point, while specimen trees and features such as pergolas, sculptures, bird tables and large pots can act as landmarks. Create a series of places to sit, with focal points to look at. These should also be protected from bright sunlight, chilling winds and deep shade, perhaps introducing a canopy or a parasol to prevent exposure to the elements. Use gentle changes rather than strong contrasts. For example, avoid strong shadows on paths, which might look like holes, abrupt changes in paving materials which may look like steps, or reflective materials which might look like water. These might give rise to general confusion and agitation and also present fall hazards. When adding a walkway, Alzheimer’s Society (www.alzheimers.org. uk) recommends paths which are constant, such as a figure of eight, as


BEST OF THE BUNCH SEDLUM These excellent perennials are at their best in late summer and autumn, and their succulent foliage is a great backdrop to their plates of colourful flowers, in shades ranging from white to deep pink. Sedums generally like dry, sunny gardens and good drainage. Give them too much water and they will flop. Among the best varieties is Sedum ‘Herbstfreude’ (‘Autumn Joy’), which looks great repeat-planted at the front of a border, producing swathes of coral flowers in late summer, followed by handsome seedheads which will prolong the season of interest. Others include S. spectabile ‘Iceberg’, a white variety which is a magnet to butterflies and S. ‘Vera Jameson’, which has spreading stems which creep over the edge of a path or in gravel, bearing dusky pink flowers above purple leaves.

GOOD ENOUGH TO EAT KOHL RABI It may be widely available in supermarkets these days, but Kohl rabi, a member of the cabbage family and a continental relative of the turnip producing an edible swollen stem above ground, deserves a place in the vegetable plot. Kohl rabi likes a moist, fertile soil which is slightly alkaline. Add some balanced fertiliser a couple of days before sowing if it’s dry in late spring and early summer. Sow little and often through the summer in seed drills 1.5cm deep by 15cm apart, covering with a little compost then thin the seedlings to around 10 apart. Plants should grow rapidly and, if you sow in late March, the first roots should be ready in early May and can be pulled when they reach the size of a golf ball. Trim off the long root and outer leaves, leaving the stem with a small tuft of leaves. Kohl Rabi has a mild, sweet flavour, somewhere between a turnip and a waterchestnut, with a crisp, crunchy texture. It can be found in two colours, pale green and the less common purple and can be eaten raw, or roasted, steamed or stir-fried. Good varieties include the purple-skinned, quick maturing ‘Azur Star’, which has a good resistance to bolting, and ‘White Vienna’, a green-skinned fast-maturing type. paths with abrupt endings can disorientate people with dementia. Stimulate all of the senses all year round with colourful, fragrant plants and flowers, water features and wind chimes. Scents can often create memories, so introduce plants to the garden that have great smells, such as lavender, rosemary, mint or thyme. Sensory experience can be increased through introducing plants which are soft to touch such as lambs’ ears or bunny tails, an ornamental grass which is soft and fluffy. Of course, it’s wise to remove dangerous plants as dementia sufferers may not recall which plants are poisonous or irritate their skin. Similarly, any plants with thorns or which may sting should be removed from the garden altogether. For many of us, gardening is an enjoyable pastime - but for others, it’s a lifeline.

WHAT TO DO THIS WEEK: IN YOUR GARDEN Make the most of those few sunny days left 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.

1 2 3 4

Move trees and shrubs which are in the wrong position or have outgrown their space.

5 6 7 8 9

Lift and divide crocosmias and montbretias, as their display will decline if they become congested.

10

Lift Lilium regale clumps and re-set, planting them about 15cm (6in) deep in well-drained soil improved with compost and grit.

11

Lift maincrop potatoes, choosing a dry day so the tubers can be left on the surface for a couple of hours to allow the skin to dry off thoroughly.

12

Cut off deteriorating foliage on pond plants and compost it.

Prune climbing roses as soon as they have finished flowering. Lift and divide congested herbaceous perennials. Protect tender perennials that you want for next year by lifting them and keeping them in a frostfree place.

Continue your autumn lawn care by scarifying, aerating and feeding. Reduce mowing the lawn but don’t give up completely, mow when necessary to keep it tidy. Fix grease bands to the trunks of apple trees and continue to plant onion sets and garlic. Continue to harvest autumn-fruiting raspberries and freeze them if you have too many.

ASK THE GARDEN EXPERT Catherine Morford Nature’s Way Garden Design Whilst most perennials start to fade as the season changes there are still plenty of shrubs and trees preparing for their autumn display, with breathtaking shades of foliage and bright berries allowing gardeners to continue interest throughout the coming months. So if the garden is lacking colour over the next month or so, why not consider introducing a new shrub or two. Here are some suggestions …

Acer palmatum “Osakakuzi” One of the best Japanese maples for autumn colour, the midgreen leaves of this acer turn to vivid shades of scarlet in autumn. Suited to a sheltered area of the garden, preferring neutral-acid soil, this tree can also be successfully grown in a container, using ericaceous compost, for many years if kept well watered.

Amelanchier lamarkii A tree for all seasons! Starting with showy star-shaped white flowers in early spring and deep red berries in summer, which darken as they ripen. The bronze-tinged young leaves maturing to yellow-ish green and then turn to orange and crimson tones as autumn approaches. It tolerates most soils and is best suited to full sun or partial shade.

TOP BUY WELLINGTON BOOTS We’re just about into welly season now, and there’s a plethora of new footwear products on the market. For a good, solid boot with a hardwearing grippy sole, The Lady Riverwood new range from Regatta offers all you need at a mid-range price - with the added bonus of also looking stylish. They’re cosy, thanks to the ‘Warmloft’ synthetic down technology, waterproof and lightweight, while the multidirectional cleated sole helps to give extra stability in wet or damp conditions. Available in black with a pink trim, or navy with a white trim and red sole, at £40. 138

Enkianthus campanulatus

£40.00

www.regatta.com

A deciduous shrub renowned for it’s autumn colour, also offers a profusion of creamy-pink flowers in late spring. They are ideal for growing with rhododendrons on moist, neutral-acidic soil, preferring a partially shaded spot in the garden.

Cotinus coggygria ‘Royale The deep purple leaves of this large shrub appear in spring to provide a perfect contrast to other plants in a mixed border of the garden. Whilst plumes of flowers appear throughout summer, this plant is often chosen for it’s autumn display, when the simple rounded leaves turn a shimmering orange-red colour. For best results, grow in full sun. Autumn is ideal for planting with minimal maintenance needed. The soil is still warm, with cooler weather and increased rainfall limiting the need to water new plants.

THE ANSWER TO THE PERFECT LAWN NAMGRASS, THE ARTIFICIAL GRASS BRAND Artificial grass has come a long way in recent years, gone are the days of products with a stiff abrasive pile, that would take the skin form your knuckles or knees at the slightest glance… artificial grass products at the higher end of the scale now offer multi toned, long soft fibres, and low level curled ‘thatch zones’ that not only give support, but give the products that all important authentic look and feel.

roof gardens, cladding for walls, display areas for shops, beer gardens in pubs etc… However replacing a back (and/or front) lawn is probably one of the biggest growth areas at this point, and why not, the benefits speak for themselves – No Mowing, No watering, No mud (if you have children and/or pets) and you have a neat green area all year round, that requires next to no maintenance at all.

Yet surprisingly, most people’s interpretation of artificial grass is still the ultra fake looking ‘butchers shop window’ product you used to see on the highstreet – you only have to mention the option of artificial grass to them, and you get a look of disbelief - Yet pull out a sample of some of the latest grass products on the market and you get a totally different reaction ‘wow, I didn’t realise how good artificial grass had become’. In most cases the customer only has to see a sample of a high quality product, and they are already convinced by the idea.

The recent threat of hose pipe bans has also triggered people into considering artificial grass, and although it is a fully synthetic product, there’s environmental argument too, with no requirement for watering, harmful pesticides/fertilisers and of course no need for the mower, be it electric or petrol. Count both these cost and environmental savings up over an expected lifespan of 15 – 20 years and im sure the artificial grass wins many times over…

SO WHERE DOES ARTIFICIAL GRASS GET USED? The honest answer to this at the moment is: where isn’t it getting used… This new wave of ultra realistic products on the market has opened up all 140 sorts of new avenues for artificial grass such as

SO WITH ALL THESE POSITIVES, ARE THERE ANY DISADVANTAGES? To supply and properly install a high quality artificial lawn, its is obviously going to cost more than relaying a natural lawn, but once again when you look at it over the long term, the artificial grass starts to make real sense. The only other negative factor may arise if you opt for a sub standard product (and

unfortunately there are an awful lot of them in the market place). As with any product in the UK, once a market is seen as being a ‘growing market’ everybody starts to jump on the band waggon, and before you know it artificial grass suppliers are popping up everywhere. Unfortunately it's not just a simple case of buying an expensive product to guarantee high quality, there are so many elements that make up a top quality product, such as the quality of the yarns used, the scrim/weave used as the basis for the product, the type of UV stabilization etc etc... only one of these elements needs to be of substandard quality, and this will result in issues further down the line. In a market that is flooded with products coming in from all over globe, it’s easy to get swamped by dozens of similar looking samples. However - narrow your search to a product produced in Europe to ISO 9001 standards (ensuring the best possible quality) and this will narrow your search considerably. Now you have your product, what is the best way to install it?? Once again, it's easy to get baffled by the different advise given here, but if we to assume a reasonably straight forward lawn replacement, like for like, the process is easy...


NEED TO KNOW Installing artificial grass is a simple process, but it goes without saying that some jobs are never quite as straight forward, problems can arise with access, soil conditions, or drainage issues - all these factors need to be considered when taking a job on, but it’s no different to pricing for any other type of landscape work - and just as with any other type of landscape work, the quality of the finish will be reflected in not only the quality of the ground work, but ultimately the quality and finish of the product used.

DIFFERENT TYPES OF ARTIFICIAL GRASS PERFECT FOR... LANDSCAPE GARDENING & LAWNS GREEN MEADOW £23.99 per sq metre Green Meadow now not only feels even more realistic, it looks more authentic too. The 32mm finer, long grass fibres allow this artificial grass to be more ‘open’, exposing more of the curled thatch, resulting in a deeper, natural look to this grass.

PERFECT FOR... MULTI SPORTS & GOLF GREEN PLAY £18.99 per sq metre With a 20mm pile height and dense curled fibres Green Play makes for an extremely hard-wearing and durable artificial grass, very well suited to play areas, roof terraces and gardens etc, as well as commercial applications.

PERFECT FOR... SCHOOLS & NURSERIES GREEN OASIS £23.99 per sq metre

INSTALLATION

An extremely dense, multi-toned artificial grass, constructed using the very latest in grass fibre technology. With a mixture of light and medium green tones, and a darker ‘thatch effect’, it looks and feels like a newly laid ‘spring’ lawn.

• Strip off the grass (a good turf cutter makes easy work of this, an leaves a clean surface). • Edge the area where necessary, this can be a brick edge, metal edge (ever edge) or even timber. • Build the area back up to the necessary levels using a 5mm to dust aggregate (or similar) using a fine grade material enables the all-important job of taking out undulations etc... Is made easy. Compact this, and then work the area again to achieve your final level. • Install a getoex membrane, pin into position • Finally lay your artificial grass out, ensuring the pile is facing the desired direction; make sure the grass is sitting in the correct position before cutting it in using a Stanley knife. Once cut in, we would recommend a partial sand fill using a coarse grade, kilndried sand, this not only adds weight but also increases the longevity of any product.

PERFECT FOR... EXHIBITIONS & INTERIORS GREEN BLISS £16.99 per sq metre A new high quality, low cost addition to our product range for 2012. Using the same soft, multi-toned fibres from our Green Mirage, but with an 18mm pile height, makes Green Bliss an ideal product for roof gardens, play areas, terraces and lawns.

5 PLACES TO USE... ARTIFICIAL GRASS REPLACING YOUR NATURAL LAWN This is becoming an increasingly popular choice for many now, and why not, the artificial grass products of today have come a long way – make the right product choice, and install it correctly and your ‘fake lawn’ will be almost indistinguishable from the real thing, but with a fraction of the maintenance and upkeep, allowing you more time to enjoy your garden or concentrate on other jobs… The main element to consider here is product choice, with such a wide variety available, I would recommend narrowing your search to products produced in Europe, with ISO certification.

ROOF TERRACES AND BALCONIES

With more and more people living in apartments and flats, having your own ‘green space’ is becoming more difficult to come by. Just by simply adding some artificial grass to a balcony, roof terrace, or even covering an ugly roof you overlook, can completely transform the outlook of an apartment/flat. Elements to consider here are – drainage of the proposed area, will it require an underlay/drainage underlay, what is the existing surface, can you glue to this surface?


CHILDREN’S PLAY AREAS This is becoming an increasingly popular choice for many now, and why not, the artificial grass products of today have come a long way – make the right product choice, and install it correctly and your ‘fake lawn’ will be almost indistinguishable from the real thing, but with a fraction of the maintenance and upkeep, allowing you more time to enjoy your garden or concentrate on other jobs… The main element to consider here is product choice, with such a wide variety available, I would recommend narrowing your search to products produced in

ALTERNATIVE USES

PET AREAS/GARDENS

With artificial grass becoming increasingly popular, it appears to be getting used for a wider variety of applications, such as - artificial hedging/screening (pictured), it can be applied on top of old slippery decking as a quick but effective remedy to an increasingly popular problem. Sops and exhibitions are using artificial grass more and more for displays, being a relatively economic product that can be rolled out time and time again, I suppose its understandable… its even being used to clad buildings.

With the obvious advantages of artificial grass not staining (as long as it’s a high quality product), nor becoming muddy and messy, many pet owners are converting to artificial grass for their gardens, having been fed up with their patchy, muddy lawn. Once again here its important to choose a good durable product, and consider the drainage of the subbase, you want it a free draining as possible…

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

RISKY ROAD USERS Inexperience (86%) and overconfidence (86%) are the main reasons that new drivers are the riskiest group of road users, according to the latest poll from road safety charity IAM.

ADD VEHICLE CONTRACTS - WHAT IS LEASING? In its most simple definition, a car ‘lessee’ pays a monthly sum to take possession of a contract car for a period of between typically two to four years. At the end of the term the lessee gives the car back to the dealer/owner and takes a new lease or may opt to buy the car at its value at that point. Why does leasing often get a ‘bigger bounce for your buck’? The amount that a lessee pays over the period of a lease is typically equal to the amount that the contract car (ie; the leased car) will depreciate over that period. According to the AA , after

Poll results showed support for restrictions such as stricter drink-drive limits for younger drivers. Forty-nine per cent of respondents believe that the drink-drive limit should be lower for younger drivers. When it comes to the number of passengers younger drivers can carry, seventy-one per cent support restrictions on the in the first few months after passing the practical test.Attitudes were more divided on night time curfews with forty-seven per cent support a nightime curfew while forty-five per cent do not want to see any curfew enforced for young people. There needs to be a lifelong learning approach to driving that starts at school and continues through experience and coaching into the higher risk early days of solo driving.”. 144

A rough example that excludes VAT; a £19,000 Ford might have a forecast depreciation of 50% over 3 years amounting to c. £9,500. This drives the price of the leasing contract and based on depreciation only, over 36 months the Ford might cost approximately £263 a month. However, for an Audi A4 that has an original value of £29,000 it might only depreciate by 30% across that period and this would mean (based on depreciation only) the monthly price would be £241 per month for a more up market vehicle. Which Car Finance Option is best leasing or buying? This is a subjective question. First you must ask yourself: What benefits will you get for owning the car? This might include: Owning the car for as long as you like; It allows you to drive an unlimited amount of miles.

Respondents also rated peer pressure (67%), immaturity (52%) and shortfalls in the learning process (45%) as being important risk factors. Sixty-eight per cent of respondents lack faith in the current driving test as being an adequate system to produce safe drivers. There is a high degree of dissatisfaction with the current system for learning to drive. When asked to rate how well new drivers are taught using a scale of one to ten (1 being poor, 10 being ideal), half (57%) of respondents rated it as a 5 or below.

3 years the average car will have lost around 60% of its value. However, some cars (Audi, Mini or BMW) depreciate much less than others (Ford) and therefore, it may actually be close to the same price to lease an Audi as it is a Ford.

What benefits will you obtain from leasing a car? This option most often means lower monthly payments)for driving high quality cars (compared to buying) Smaller deposit/upfront payment – provided you have a good credit record this will typically be 3 months as opposed to 10 or 20% for a loan. Flexibility – although it will increase your payment you can extend the mileage if you like and you can extend the period (which will decrease your monthly payment) and you can opt to buy the car at the end.

ALFA ROMEO’S GIULIETTA

Alfa Romeo’s Giulietta is arguably the prettiest car in its sector, and exudes the famous Alfa charisma which has traditionally appealed more to the heart than the head, helping build a very loyal following.

options, with turbo petrol units from 1.4 to 1.7 litres ranging from 118 to 231 hp. The turbo-diesel engines range from a 1.6 litre 103hp version to 2.0 litre units spanning 140-168 hp. My recent test model was a 2.0 litre 140 hp version and in standard Veloce trim priced at £22,550. Standard kit includes cruise control, climate control, six airbags, sports suspension, side skirts, remote locking, rear spoiler, radio/CD/MP3/Bluetooth, start-stop system, sport steering wheel and pedals, darkened headlights, kickplates, part-leather upholstery and daytime running lights.

The Giulietta is a more distinctive and exclusive choice than many in a sector which includes the likes of the VW Golf. It drives well and offers good fuel economy, so it has several strong plus points. Prices start at £17,765 and there are 21 different versions which means you can to an extent tailor the car to your own requirements. There are several engine

The test model was also fitted with almost £3,000 worth of options including special paintwork, larger alloys, a premium BOSE sound system and a ‘visibility pack’ which included rain, dusk and condensation sensors and electro-chromatic rear view mirror, taking the price to £25,380. Externally, the Giulietta looks terrific and attracted a lot of admiration. The

interior is not as impressive, the metallic dashboard insert looking cheap, and the cabin is quite gloomy. It is however quite functional with good placement of switchgear. Occupant space front and rear is good, the boot offers average capacity for the class, and on overall practicality this Alfa scores well. On the road, the car is quite nippy, with a 0-60mph time of 9 seconds. Top speed is 127 mph and the combined fuel figure is impressive at 62.8 mpg. The Giulietta rides well, is assured on the bends, and despite firm suspension still delivers a comfortable ride. You can alter throttle and steering responses at the touch of a switch, with three modes. The only obvious criticism of this appealing car is that it is difficult to get a fully comfortable driving position. The pedals are different heights and slightly off-set to the right, and there is no sidespace for your clutch foot - irritating on longer trips.

Smoking. Actually, give it up altogether. Nothing spoils your skin faster than cigarettes, which are loaded with poisons, toxins, nicotine and chemicals. Each inhalation will flush these nasty’s right through your blood stream, and deliver them directly to your skin cells and surrounding tissues, eroding collagen and elastin, which makes skin weak and causes it to sag. They also constrict a blood vessel, which means skin cells are starved of oxygen, and your complexion quickly takes on a dull, grey and fatigued appearance. Alcohol. More than two alcoholic beverages a day can put a strain on your liver, which means that lymphatic drainage and toxin removal is compromised, both of which will negatively affect the clarity and radiance of your skin. Choose your alcoholic beverage wisely, too. Red wine is a good choice, as it’s got plenty of antioxidants to help build skin cell strength.

Caffeine. As much as we all love a great cup of coffee or tea, it’s best to stick to one a day, maximum. It can be dehydrating to skin, not to mention make you anxious, thanks to the stimulating nature of caffeine. For each cup of coffee or tea, drink three glasses of filtered water. Your skin will thank you for it.

DID YOU KNOW Blueberries are said to be the greatest food source for antioxidants – they offer anti-aging prevention that’s too good not to try.

Exercise. At least three to four cardiovascular workouts of around 30 – 45 minutes each week are essential for healthy functioning of your heart and lungs, and for a healthy glow to your skin.

2

Water. Self-explanatory, really. Drinking at least three litres of water daily will help flush toxins from your body and hydrate your skin from the inside. It will also help improve energy levels, which will make you more inclined to exercise.

3

Sleep. It’s not called beauty sleep for nothing. Eight hours sleep a night is essential for skin to really get the most of its nightly rest and repair functions. You’ll wake up less puffy and with a more clarified complexion.

Cleanse morning and night. Never let this slip by. Cleanse twice at night – once for make-up and the second time to remove the day’s debris and any pollution or nasty’s that could be lodged on the skin’s surface. In the morning, apply a thick layer of your favourite cleanser and leave it on for ten minutes. Most cleansers contain active ingredients, so it’s a nice way to multi-task, using it as a mask. Then simply wash it off in the shower. Give yourself a facial massage. When applying your daily or nightly moisturiser, take five to ten minutes to gently, but firmly, massage the cream into your skin. The massaging action will help with lymphatic drainage in the facial areas (read: less puffiness and fewer breakouts), and it will improve blood flow to the cells, which in turn will boost luminosity to the skin.

KEEPING UP WITH JONES Jane Jones Jane Jones PR

So, Halloween is fast approaching and, boy has the Neighbourhood Watch gone all out to alert us to the fact with a pamphlet offering us residents advice on Halloween Protocol. It suggests we make a connection with our neighbours in advance of ‘trick-or-treating’ to ascertain whether or not they’re happy for our children to knock on their doors. Last year, my partner created a work of art with two pumpkins, which we illuminated with tea lights and placed at the front door; I stocked up on the obligatory mass of sweets, and we awaited the onslaught of little ghouls, parents in tow, ready to cast their spells on us. A disappointing three hours later, neither a white sheet nor witch’s hat in sight, not a single trickster, let alone a treater. I started on the Haribos and Celebrations myself. The moral of this story: Why raise alarm in advance of what, at most, amounts to a few high jinks? Do we really need bother the neighbours over what is generally regarded as a bit of seasonal fun for little ones once a year? Surely a lit porch or flickering pumpkin is an automatic invitation to venture up to their doors . . . if you dare! My 15-year-old son boarded a bus in Bournemouth recently and was asked for proof of age. He explained that he was only 15 but the driver insisted that he produce something to prove it. Honestly, I’ve heard of youngsters forging proof of age in order to get into clubs, but do I seriously have to get a certificate to prove that my son is the age he says he is wherever he goes? He is pretty observant and yesterday he commented on the empty Tesco Express on Holdenhurst Road. I was concentrating on the road, but my young entrepreneur made the valid point - why does an empty Tesco shop have to look so, well, sordid? When I asked him how he knew it was a Tesco store he pointed out that all their colours are still emblazoned on the premises. We are supposed to be trying to improve the appearance of our high streets so shouldn’t Tesco be ahead of the game and set an example?

We’ve had some fairly dramatic headlines recently in the Echo, not least the news that a well-known local planning agent received a 10-month custodial sentence in the same week the children of Alan and Rochelle Bernard, the tragic couple mown down on the Sandbanks Peninsular, are quite rightly suing the perpetrator for damages in excess of 350k. And why not I ask? This idiot Knowles was drinking in the very bar of the establishment where the couple, unaware of the close proximity of their would-be killer, were eating. Unlike him, they did the sensible thing and walked to their holiday home a short stroll away. But not Knowles, who, despite living even closer, thought it would be more fun to play the boy racer in his mother’s fast car. We’ve read the rest. Gone is this lovely couple and Knowles, after time spent trying to play the old ‘not of sound mind’ card, is now residing at her Majesty’s pleasure and, hopefully, deliberating about the horror caused by his selfish actions on that fateful night. Pay he must, but nothing can compensate the children’s loss of their beautiful parents who should simply have wended their way home after a pleasant evening but instead were hit at break-neck speed by a reckless fool, hell-bent on a speed game around the peninsular. Here end the lesson . . .

Throughout October a number of people will be celebrating Vegetarian awareness month. It’s a chance to try something new and discover how great a meat-free diet can be. Changing your diet to strictly no meat is not for everyone; however there are health benefits to including just one meatfree meal a week in to your diet. This Melty mushroom wellington recipe is a perfect example of a great meat-free meal. It’s easy to prepare and gives you the flexibility to choose your own cheese, and you can add some additional flavours with peppers or onions, fried in with the spinach if you wish.

SHOW LEFTOVERS SOME LOVE The kitchen’s full of bits and bobs but you’ve got no idea what to do with them. Sounds familiar? TV chef Rachel Allen tells Andy Welch how to turn those leftovers into fabulous family meals

The kitchen’s full of bits and bobs but you’ve got no idea what to do with them. Sounds familiar? TV chef Rachel Allen tells Andy Welch how to turn those leftovers into fabulous family meals How often do you come home hungry after a long day, only to stare blankly into the fridge? It’s a common dilemma: cupboards full of food, yet nothing to eat. But now help is at hand. For TV chef Rachel Allen, the solution lies in knowing what to do with the random leftovers you have lying around. It’s the theme for her new Good Food series Rachel Allen’s Everyday Kitchen, and accompanying book Rachel’s Everyday Kitchen: Simple, Delicious Family Food. “It’s for that time when you look in the fridge, see a bit a bacon that needs eating up, or some leftover chicken, and can’t work out what to make,” says the Dublin-born chef. “It was my sister who gave me this idea, about making recipes for leftovers, essentially. I knew it was the right thing to do when, at 156

Christmas, we had our traditional conversation about what to do with all the leftover ham, turkey and veg.” The recipes she’s put together aren’t necessarily concerned with thrift - although if you start using your leftovers and planning meals more carefully you will automatically save money. They are more about making delicious meals with the food you already have at home. “It’s really thinking like my grandparents did,” says Allen, 41, who’s also been a regular guest on the BBC’s Saturday Kitchen. “Everything was accounted for. And yes, we do waste so much food. My mum was the best soup-maker, so there are some lovely soup recipes in the series. Whatever didn’t get eaten went back in the fridge to be turned into a soup or a casserole the following day.” There are some more creative and unexpected recipes in there too, she says - “it’s not all making shepherd’s pie from leftover lamb and so on”. “There are delicious fresh and exciting things in there too, like the chicken, fennel and orange salad, or tartiflette,

which comes from the Haute-Savoie region of France. “It’s traditionally made with roast potatoes and the Reblochon cheese they make in the area, but this is my husband Isaac’s recipe from Christmas time. He just uses whatever leftover cheese and ham there is, and spare roast potatoes.” It does sound delicious, although the idea of ‘spare’ roast potatoes sounds a little odd - those delicious, crispy carb nuggets are normally the first things to go! The show also features tips from the Ballymaloe Cookery School, where Allen trained and now helps to run with her husband and motherin-law Darina, such as making breadcrumbs for the storage cupboard from stale crusts, or using the heads of the prawns from the Mexican chilli seafood dish to create a tasty stock to use at a later date. “There’s so much flavour in the bones and heads - bits we might not want to eat and would ordinarily just throw away, so I want to get people to hold onto things like that,” says Allen,

who lives in County Cork with Isaac and their three young children. Of course, there’s also some baking involved - Allen’s Bake! series and book basked in the joys of making your own breads, cakes and pastries, two years before The Great British Bake Off hit screens in 2010, sparking a baking frenzy. “It’s extraordinary how much baking is happening,” she says. “I’ll be in an elevator or walking around town and someone will turn around and say, ‘I made your so-and-so cake for my office’s bake Friday’, or for their child’s school, so I’m very pleased about that, and that people are trying the recipes for themselves. “I’d love to say I had a gut feeling and knew the baking boom was coming, but it was by accident. “As for this series, it’s about good old-fashioned kitchen know-how and I hope as many people try out these recipes too.” On that note, here are three of said recipes to get going with.


RECIPE

Duck spring rolls with pak choi

TIP

INGREDIENTS

Serve the spring rolls with the pak choi and extra plum sauce on the side.

150g cooked duck meat, shredded 50g spring onions, trimmed and thinly shredded 100g grated carrot 2tbsp chopped coriander 3tbsp plum sauce, plus extra to serve

METHOD

Salt and ground black pepper 8 sheets of spring roll pastry (25cm) 150ml sunflower oil 500g pak choi, stems and leaves cut into 8cm lengths 25g sesame seeds, toasted 15ml sesame oil ­

In a bowl, mix together the shredded duck with the spring onions, carrot, coriander and plum sauce, seasoning with salt and pepper to taste. Lay a sheet of spring roll pastry flat on a board. Add a heaped tablespoon of the duck mixture to the pastry and spread out in a line parallel to the end closest to you, leaving a margin of about 3cm from the edge, and a gap of about 5cm on the other edges. Brush a little water on the edges, then fold in the sides, over the filling. Brush with a water again, then roll up the pastry away from you, making sure you do it quite tightly. Repeat with the remaining mixture and pastry. Place a large frying pan on a high heat and pour in the oil. When the oil’s hot, add the spring rolls - or as many as will fit comfortably in a single layer - and fry, turning to cook all sides, for eight to 10 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from the pan and drain on kitchen paper. For the pak choi, bring a large saucepan of salted water to the boil. Add the pak choi stems and cook for one to two minutes or until just tender, then stir in the leaves and drain immediately. Place in a serving dish, then sprinkle over the toasted sesame seeds and sesame oil.

RECIPE

MAKES 4 BAPS

Pulled Lamp Baps Ingredients 2-4 cloves of garlic, peeled and crushed or finely grated 2 egg yolks 1tbsp lemon juice 1tsp Dijon mustard 175ml sunflower oil 50ml olive oil 4 large white or brown rolls or baps Butter, for spreading

300g shredded cooked lamb (slow-roasted leg or shoulder is perfect) ¼ cucumber, sliced ½ red onion, peeled and thinly sliced 200g feta cheese, sliced Handful of green leaves, such as rocket or watercress

Method Place the garlic in a bowl with the egg yolks, lemon juice and mustard. Whisk until slightly frothy. In a separate jug, mix both oils then, whisking constantly, pour slowly into the egg yolk mixture in a very thin stream. Continue to add the oil, whisking all the time until it’s fully incorporated - creating a thick aioli. Season with salt and pepper to taste then set aside. Slice the rolls in half and toast them on each side, then spread with butter and a little of the aioli. Assemble the lamb, cucumber, red onion, feta and salad leaves on top of one half of each roll, then sandwich together with the other half. Cut the filled rolls in half and serve.

BUCKHOLME TOWERS PLACING ‘COMMUNITY’ AT THE HEART OF SCHOOLING “Happiness through education, education through happiness” is the motto teachers and pupils at Buckholme Towers School in Lower Parkstone live by. However, education is just one of many parts involved in schooling and by encouraging children to support local causes they will develop into wellrounded individuals. Our staff and pupils have first-hand experience of what it is like to be on the receiving end of community support. In March, the school was devastated by a fire, but thanks to local people we were able to continue lessons within 48 hours. Temporary classrooms were set up in the hall at Parkstone United Reformed Church and the community helped to build a safe pathway from the back of the church to the school, so the pupils could avoid the busy road. The refurbished school reopened on the first day of the new school term. Experiencing this level of kindness and support really hit home to me just how important it is for the pupils to go the extra mile and give something back to the community. In light of this, we gave the new term a positive kick-start and we have already helped a number of local causes. In September we held a fundraiser and donated money to a series of charities including The Butterfly Foundation in Bournemouth, a charity working for families who have suffered domestic violence, IrisCambodia.org, an orphanage in Cambodia and Poole’s Forest Holme Hospice in return for the excellent support our caretaker, Alan John, received during his last days. The pupils and their families also filled many bags with clothes, toys and books to increase stocks in the British Heart Foundation’s charity shops. We worked alongside local radio station, Wave 105, to help boost donations as part of the national campaign ‘Bag-a-Thon’. More recently, we teamed up with Churchill Retirement Living in ‘The Big Little Bake-Off’ to launch a series of events hosted by the retirement company to raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support. Fourteen pupils from year five judged cakes made by apartment owners and awarded the winner with a handmade rosette. We try to encourage pupils to get involved with a range of different charities in all kinds of ways so they understand that helping others can be fun and they will gain lots of valuable experiences in the process. A large percentage of our pupils achieve places at local grammar schools and this is undoubtedly one of the success criteria for many of our parents. However, just as importantly, pupils leave Buckholme confident and eager to learn, they are good communicators and they understand that by giving a small amount of their time they can do wonders for people in less fortunate situations – these things, as much as the academic results, are how we measure our success. Buckholme Towers School open events On Friday October 11 from 5pm to 7pm, local people and businesses will get the chance to have a guided tour of the new building and to meet the headmaster and teaching staff. The Mayor of Poole Cllr Philip Eades will cut a ribbon to officially mark the opening. Saturday 12 October from 10am - noon, will see local parents who wish to find out more about the school and discuss the opportunities available at 162
