A GREAT TIME IN THE BH AREA TO MAKE YOUR MOVE! At BH Sales & Lettings it’s been exiting to see our housing market activity pick up significantly this year. A combination of the Governments intervention, improved consumer confidence and low interest rates have come together to make current improvements look more prolonged than the short-lived bounce seen in 2010. Under the Help to Buy scheme, the Government is guaranteeing 15 per cent of the home loan to give banks confidence to grant mortgages to purchasers with a deposit equal to just 5 per cent of the value of the home loan they are requesting. First time buyers are continuing to take advantage of the Government’s Help to Buy scheme to make their first step on the property ladder. Visit www. bhsalesandlettings.co.uk or call 01202 730730

WHAT WE CAN DO TO STOP BAD TENANTS? Here at Camerons we are always looking for different ways to help improve and ease landlords worries of tenants – including anti-social behaviour and rent arrears. My biggest bug bear when renting properties is the referencing system. It goes to say that if a landlord wants someone out their property they aren’t going to give a bad reference!! This is understandable.... Also someone’s credit check may pass with flying colours as it is so hard for landlords to chase for rent arrears – A group of us have decided to work together to fight against tenants who create these problems for Landlords. Camerons plus a couple of other dedicated Landlords/

agents have also been working closely with Boscombe Police in re-generating the more run down areas of Bournemouth / Poole and looking at ways we can all help each other. This will also span across the region and I am hoping that people will start to think about their actions before they are known to Agents and won’t be able to get housed privately. We have had a great idea of sharing the problem tenants with one another aptly named ‘TENANT ALERTS’ and the more Agents and private Landlords that would like to get involved the better all our lives would be.

that take an interest and look at improving things for Landlords – for more information on the meetings please get in touch with Billy.Bulloch@dorset.pnn. police.uk So if you are a Landlord and would like to know more about the ways we are improving the referencing process please feel free to contact me 01202 295678

We hold monthly meetings, to discuss problems in the area and how we can work together to create better rental harmony for everyone. The more people

WHY AN ARLA AGENT IS ALWAYS THE BEST CHOICE IN LETTINGS In the current economic climate, choosing the right letting agent to look after your property has never been more important. Burns Lettings, established in 1971 are an ARLA Licensed Agent & pride themselves on doing things differently. Lettings Manager Aimee Ramage says “After working in the Lettings & Property Management Industry for over 10 years I cannot stress to Landlords how important it is to choose an ARLA registered or licensed Agent. As an ARLA (Association of Residential Letting Agents) Agent you have to adhere to a strict code of practice. We understand that the rental income gained from investment properties is crucial & therefore Landlords need to ensure that their agent is doing everything correctly to adhere with Legislation. We at Burns Lettings ensure our clients are constantly updated with not only current industry knowledge but years of experience which money can’t buy. Most importantly we at Burns ensure that we let properties to the RIGHT calibre tenants. Other Agents purely focus on letting properties to the first tenant that shows interest and pays fees; however we at

Burns are here to look after your investment from day one. And an ARLA (Association of Residential Letting Agents) licenced agent is definitely the way forward” It is very easy for a Letting agent to take the first person who walks through the door, regardless of financial position, references or quality of applicant. At Burns Lettings, our prime objective is to match the RIGHT tenants with the RIGHT property, ensuring both Landlord and tenants are happy, and encouraging long term lets for our clients. This means securing of rental income for Landlords & security of a longer term Tenancy for Tenants. This allows both parties to plan their expenditure and minimise future extension fees making the process of renting as cost effective as possible. Burns Lettings are ARLA licensed agents and all of their staff are ARLA qualified, or currently training for the qualification. Aimee believes “It is imperative to Burns that we all keep up to date with legislation, ensuring we are always able to offer our clients the best service. To achieve this, ARLA is simply the finest association we can use to train our staff, both as new starters and for on-going

training for the experienced staff. Lettings is a face paced industry and it agents cannot simply rest on their laurels, it is vital to continue to develop within the local industry and the marketplace as an entirety. We at Burns do everything we possibly can to set ourselves aside from the competition.” At Burns we encourage our Landlords to present their properties in the best possible condition to attract the best possible clients. It has been proven time and time again that a property left in poor condition will only attract undesirable tenants, who only make the property worse. The experienced team at Burns, with over 40 years experience in the Lettings Industry, are trained and equipped to deal with anything from studio apartments to mansions. The process of letting a property is, in theory, a very simple process. Tenants are registered by an agent, shown an appropriate property according to their needs, fully referenced and then move into their new home. This theory is so easily corrupted when this process is not followed. The ‘what’s’, ‘where’s’ and ‘why’s’ are so important in ensuring everyone’s time is used effectively. Then Landlords

get quality tenants quickly and the tenants themselves aren’t spending hours viewing properties aren’t suitable. When this process isn’t followed then things start to go wrong. Once the Tenancy has started you will have your very own dedicated Property Manager to ensure you have a direct point of contact throughout the Tenancy. Adhering to a strict registration process combined with detailed referencing Burns Lettings aim to find every Landlord their perfect tenant. And unlike other Agents they are also dedicated to making sure every tenant finds their perfect property. We are centrally located, covering all areas of Bournemouth, Poole and Christchurch, and we’re looking for more quality properties for our registered clients. Our wonderful team are here to help, whether you’re a first time landlord, experienced portfolio Landlord or perhaps you’re embarking on your journey to rent your very first home. Please call Burns Lettings now on 01202 55 33 35 to find out how we can help you with your property journey. Or email aimee@burnslettings.com


APPROVED IN BRANKSOME PARK ON THE UP WITH A LIFT FROM MERIDIAN The only way is up for Poole Town Football Club and local company Meridian Lifts have recently negotiated a deal to become a sponsor of the club. Meridian, a family owned business is operated by husband and wife team Andy and Joanne Tomlin and thrilled with their new association with Dolphins who have kick started the season with such gusto, the lift company can only express how happy they are with this new partnership. Poole, Dorset: Pure Town Planning have recently secured planning permission for a large replacement dwelling in the prestigious Branksome Park area in Poole. The approved two storey dwelling replaces a somewhat bland 1960’s chalet bungalow with an impressive, modern mansion. The property boasts two living rooms, a large office, a dining room, a snug, a kitchen and breakfast room with separate utility room, boot room, sauna and integral double garage - and that’s only the ground floor! Upstairs there are four large bedrooms all with en-suites and two of the rooms have walk in wardrobes and terrace/ balcony areas attached. This bespoke property was designed by a local architect. The design successfully balanced the owner’s requirements for additional floorspace against the restrictions in place by virtue of the site falling within a conservation area. The site fell within the Branksome Park Conservation area and so consideration had to be given to the development criteria set out in the adopted Character Appraisal and Management Plan for the area. Considerations included ” New development must reflect the

Andrew Tomlin, M.D., said: ‘We’ve always prided ourselves on involvement in the community and PTFC tick all the boxes. The club’s ground is only down the road from our offices and factory at Benridge Park in Poole and who knows what might be around the corner with the upgrades the

The conservation officer initially had concerns with the size of the replacement dwelling. However following negotiations and minor alteration to the plans, Pure Town Planning were able to convince the Borough of Poole that the proposal would ‘reinforce local distinctiveness’. Planning Permission was granted first time within the Council’s 8 week deadline.

A GOOD TIME TO CHECK OUT YOUR OPTIONS

Here at Pure Town Planning, we are always hungry for our next approval. If you are pursuing a housing development and are looking for a local firm of town planners to put together a strong submission package in order to give your proposal the best chance of receiving planning permission first time, then why not give us a call or send us an email info@ puretownplanning.co.uk as we would be delighted to assist you too.

The Government’s decision to bring forward Help-to-Buy Phase 2 is encouraging news for first-time buyers and home movers, according to local leading estate agency Palmer Snell in Westbourne. The second phase of the scheme is a mortgage guarantee, which allows buyers to purchase a home worth £600,000 or less with just a 5% deposit. The mortgage guarantee applies to all property purchases, not just new-build homes, and the Government will guarantee up to 15% of the value of the property through an agreement with the lender. Help-to-Buy Phase 2 was expected to launch in January 2014 but the Government has bought it forward to October 2013 as a continuation of its pledge to help more people across the country become homeowners. The Government aims to do this by increasing

should speak to a mortgage consultant now to find out more about the best mortgage options to suit their needs,”.

Commenting on the launch of Help-to-Buy Phase 2, Andres Gallardo, Branch Manager at Palmer Snell said: “We welcome the launch of Help to Buy Phase 2 which will enable more people to get on the housing ladder and alleviate pent up demand for those wishing to purchase their first home or trade up. Through Help-to-Buy Phase 2 we are delighted to be able to offer a 90% and 95% loan-to-value mortgage from one of the high street’s leading lenders.”

The first phase of the Help-toBuy scheme was launched in April 2013 and offers loans of up to 20 per cent to all homebuyers who are purchasing a newbuild property up to the value of £600,000. Buyers only need a 5% deposit to qualify and the Government will lend them an equity loan of 20% of the property value. The loan is interest-free for the first five years, after which buyers must pay an annual fee. Borrowers can repay the loan at any time.

The interest rates for a 95% mortgage available through Help-to-Buy Phase 2 mean that the mortgage is affordable and  repayments are manageable for homebuyers. “First-time buyers and home movers with just a 5% deposit

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.

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.

12

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.

INTERIORS

DRESS YOUR HOME FOR AUTUMN

We adapt our wardrobes to suit the changing seasons, and our homes should follow suit. Gabrielle Fagan reveals the key decor trends to ensure rooms are stylishly dressed for autumn.

1

HOUSE OF FRASER

Autumn doesn’t just bring a change in temperature, it brings a change of mood for homes. Chilly winds encourage our natural desire to hibernate and cosy-up indoors, but it’s still important for decor to dazzle. This season, designers have taken a stroll through the British countryside and produced one of the most appealing looks - woodland, inspired by our flora and fauna. This versatile trend can be interpreted to evoke a classic hunting lodge, or pared back to embrace an ultra-chic, rustic Scandi retreat.

14

TRENDS Restoration, antique, rich leathers, masculine, travel, gentleman’s club, maps & dark wood

If that’s too tame and you yearn to travel farther afield, there’s a retro-explorer look, evoked by classic mementoes like trunks and globes. Alternatively, go East to embrace the colour, sensuality and pattern of the Orient, or simply celebrate luxury with textures like silk and velvet and metallics, especially bronze and gold. “Our big trend this season is woodland,” says Sue Rob-

erts, director of home at House of Fraser. “Warm and homely, it combines wooden furniture with soft, autumnal patterns, and features owls, hedgehogs and other woodland creatures.

ity,” says Roberts. Put your passport away and simply evoke the globetrotting mood by accessorising. Items like globes and leather-trimmed travel trunks make great focal points, Roberts suggests, as well as maps, which are featuring on fabrics as well as in framed prints.

Follow the experts’ guide to the trends so that you can do the same at home and enjoy showing off your own seasonal decor transformations.

If that’s too macho for your taste, Roberts highlights an alternative: laid-back country elegance, featuring faded floral patterns, soft shades and distressed wooden furniture. For a more rustic take, enliven with woodland-themed accessories.

ARMCHAIR TRAVELLER We’re inspired by looks from around the world, so it’s no surprise that there’s a trend which reflects our love of travel and exploring. “Restoration is a traditional, antique-esque trend, featuring rich leathers and revival-style furniture.

COUNTRY COOL Our love affair with all things Scandi, from their television dramas to their style, is still going strong. A cool, neutral palette, with emphasis on pared-back design and interesting textures, are essential ingredients for this look. “Nordic Folk is our interpretation and it brings a simple, homespun aesthetic with a timeless Scandinavian influence,” says Pam McDermott, head of home buying at Sainsbury’s. “A clean, crisp palette of milky white, relaxing grey and icy blue is warmed with berry red, evoking the crispness of a wintry day. “With block prints and paper-cut designs across textiles, home accessories and tableware, this relaxed look transforms rooms into cosy winter retreats.”

A modern & stylish superb home

CONTEMPORARY LIVING IN RINGWOOD The Ringwood office of Spencers of the New Forest are pleased to offer this modern and stylish home which is situated in the prestigious private estate of Avon Castle. Ideally situated along a quiet lane, this superb home boasts delightful views across the adjacent Avon valley. Built to a high specification, by a local development company, this majestic home never fails to impress. The 5500 square foot five bedroom four bathroom home is arranged beautifully over two floors with the latest state of the art Lutron mood lighting and Upnor under floor heating systems. A magnificent reception hall with beautiful porcelain floors is partly divided by a striking contemporary chrome and oak open tread staircase which naturally leads to the first floor accommodation. A floor to ceiling glass wall divides the dining room, which has the benefit of bi folding doors which lead through to the private gardens. The kitchen really is the centre piece of this magnificent home and combines an impressive open plan dining and family area with doors leading out into the gardens with those wonderful views again! The kitchen design is by Nolte and has an excellent range of high gloss and wenge wood units which are complimented by high quality granite work tops over. There is also an excellent range of integrated appliances which comprise a kitchen aid coffee machine, microwave, double oven, wine cooler, dishwasher, two warming drawers and a useful utility room. A large and beautifully proportioned living room enjoys a double aspect over the front and rear gardens and for those who perhaps work from home, the generously sized study, is a must! Upstairs, all the five bedrooms have their own balcony and there are four bathrooms, so it’s perfect for those special guests. The impressive, triple aspect, master bedroom benefits from a beautifully tiled en suite bathroom and bi fold doors which open out on to a balcony where you can enjoy the sunrise over the Avon Valley. All the bedrooms have built in bedroom furniture, with bedrooms two and three having contemporary en suite wet rooms and a separate family bathroom. Outside the house is approached by a wide sweeping forecourt which leads to the double garage which has electric roller doors. The delightful gardens surround the house which offers much privacy and those envious views in the winter months.

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

FINANCE Get up to speed on the latest financial advice.

HOW DO YOU AVOID UNNECESSARY COSTS WHEN MOVING OUT OF A RENTAL HOME? Tenants now spend nearly 20 months on average in a privately-rented property, according to the Association of Rental Letting Agents (Arla). Planning final bills ahead of moving day will help to tie up any loose ends between tenants and landlords, and cut the chances of a dispute further down the line. Arla advises renters who are moving home to leave their new contact details with their landlord in case anything urgent’s delivered to the old address. Giving utility providers at least 48hrs notice before leaving will also allow them to send out a final bill, which a landlord may also want to see. If no formal inventory was compiled

when you moved in, it’s a good idea to take photos to show how you left the property. Unless the landlord’s agreed to hang onto it, you should also remove any additional furniture you have brought with you. If you have a big piece of furniture you need to dispose of, you may need to give your local council advance notice of this so they can help. Come clean about breakages. If a landlord has to pay more to replace a damaged item at the last minute, they may pass these extra costs onto you and deduct the money from your deposit.

BARGAIN HUNTERS Nine out of 10 Britons have had success when negotiating money off a purchase or trying to get freebie extras, a study has found. More than half (53%) of 2,000 people surveyed by price comparison website Gocompare.com said they’ve attempted to haggle, and 89% said their tactics had worked. Successful hagglers said they were prepared to walk away from a sale and many asked for money off for minor faults or for buying multiple items or a cash discount.

BOOM OR BUST FOR HOUSING MARKET? Strong growth in demand from wouldbe buyers has prompted a sharp upturn in house prices in some regions, leading some experts to fear that the market’s in danger of overheating, and that the country’s heading for another bout of boom and bust. The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors recently took the step of calling for a cap on annual house price growth, suggesting the Bank of England should intervene if they rose by more than 5%. So why are these concerns being raised now? Much of the recent uplift in demand has been put down to a significant increase in mortgage availability over the last year, thanks in large to a string of Government schemes to kickstart the market, such as Help to Buy and Funding for Lending. Some people who may have struggled to get a mortgage previously have suddenly found that lenders have turned the taps back on again. The typical interest rate on new mortgages has fallen to a record low of 3.47%, according to recent figures from financial regulators, while lenders have reported seeing first-time buyer numbers reach their highest levels in more than five years. Meanwhile, the Government’s preparing to inject a further burst of activity into the market with the launch of a second, more controversial, phase of Help to Buy at the start of next year.

74

The first stage, which began in April, offers loans so people can buy new-build homes with a deposit of just 5%. The second stage, due to come into force in January, extends this support to buyers with small deposits to any property costing up to £600,000, with the state effectively taking on the risk of a borrower defaulting. Several commentators have urged the Government to consider ditching this phase, including financial expert Ros Altmann, who says the scheme should be focused on building new homes, not “increasing demand for existing properties”. But lenders and Ministers have dismissed concerns that the country’s heading for an over-inflated housing market, puffed up by the Government promoting borrowing that would otherwise be unaffordable. The Council of Mortgage Lenders (CML) has described talk of a bubble as “premature”, and said recently: “We are a long way from such conditions and we do not imagine that Bank [of England] officials are losing sleep about current developments in the housing market.” It has said that the recent upturn in lending is “healthy”, and nothing particularly out of the ordinary compared with previous market recoveries. The CML’s figures show that around £16.6 billion worth of mortgages were

handed out to borrowers in August, almost a third higher compared with the same period last year. When you peek behind the headlines about soaring prices, you will still see huge variations taking place across the country. House prices in England have risen to a new peak and are up by 10% yearon-year in London, according to the Office for National Statistics, but they’ve dropped by 2% in Scotland year-on-year, and fallen by 0.7% in Wales. Meanwhile, prices in Northern Ireland are only just starting to recover from sharp drops seen since the market downturn, with a 1.8% year-on-year increase, and they are still 49% below their 2007 peak. To confuse things further, Matthew Pointon, a property economist at Capital Economics, points out that there are a range of different studies using different calculations to work out average house prices. He says: “The clear weight of evidence is that, parts of London aside, house prices are still some way off their previous highs. “Not only are regional house prices behaving very differently, but alternative house price indices can give very different signals about the strength of the market as a whole.”

YOUNG PEOPLE ‘LESS LIKELY TO CARRY CASH’ Around one in 16 people do not carry cash, research has suggested. With card use and new technology such as mobile payments on the increase, 6% of more than 2,000 people surveyed for account provider thinkmoney said they had no money on them. Young people were more likely not to be going cashfree, with one in 11 (9%) 18 to 24-year-olds having nothing in their pockets, compared with just 1% of 55 to 64-year-olds. On average, women had £20.50 in their wallet, while men had £27.50.

WHAT’S ON

MOVEMBER: CHANGING THE FACE OF MENS HEALTH As the eleventh annual Movember looms near, House magazine examines how this facial hair phenomenon has grown exponentially in size in just over a decade, to become one of the worlds leading charities, helping to tackle a host of mens health issues. Boasting over 1.2 million participants in 21 countries, and raising £92 million in 2012, the Movember charity is now a universally recognised brand, endorsed by an endless stream of celebrities, sports teams and a few of those who miss the seventies a little too much. However, Movember has far humbler roots. Look back just 11 years to 2003 and a small group of 30 friends gathered in a Melbourne bar to discuss growing moustaches in an attempt to bring the upper lip crumb catcher back into fashion, inadvertently conceiving what would become a global sensation. Fast forward a little over a decade and the money raised has been astounding. A total of £267,661,938 to a host of mens health charities around the world. The UK were

quick to join the party, launching our first official Movember in 2007 in conjunction with Prostate Cancer UK, and are now the single greatest financial contributor to the brand globally. Bournemouth Barbour, Barrie France agrees that the Movember movement is growing year on year in the UK. Each year we get bookings to attend work and charity events so that the people are clean shaven for the beginning of November. Barrie confesses he doesn't partake in the event himself, “I'm just too lazy, growing a moustache takes a great deal of care and attention. It's too time consuming for me”. “We do get a lot of enquiries during Movember for people looking to buy moustache wax, so you know that enough people are taking such an important cause seriously”. Movember continues to spread across

the planet, attracting more and more participating nations each year. The latest influx include Austria, Hong Kong, Singapore, Switzerland, France and Germany. This means that the charity is now represented in 4 continents. And as the cash flow increases year on year, so too do the amount of initiatives that that are directly funded by Movember. In 2012 this figure stood at a mind blowing 560.

THREE SIMPLE RULES

The entire upper lip and ‘handlebar zone’ must be completely shaved on 31st October.

The successes of Movember have recognised several times, most notably last year, being ranked 73rd in the Global Journal's Top 100 non-governmental organisations. To put that into perspective there are 5 million registered NGO's worldwide.

For the entire duration of Movember, no hair is allowed to be grown in the goatee region.

The success of Movember can be measured financially, through awards and in terms of membership. But what is most indicative of the charities success, is how it has become synonymous with the month itself. Capitalising on a fun and easy concept, Movember can be indulged by men of all ages and will only grow for years to come.

There is to be no joining of the moustache to sideburns.

Ready for David Hardwick Associate Director of Goadsby in Broadstone reports an exceptionally busy Summer in both sales and lettings.

Autumn in Broadstone

Broadstone’s biggest selling and letting team

2

013 continues to be a very busy year, with a

considerable number of buyers and tenants actively looking for their next home, indeed in recent weeks we have had many occasions where there have been multiple buyers and oers for a single property.

The popular areas of Broadstone, Corfe Mullen and Lytchett Matravers continue to attract a high level of demand, with its variety of properties. Many of our buyers are looking for traditional family homes, both small and large in the ever desirable school catchment locations. Bungalows are attracting retirement movers locally, and those looking to relocate to Dorset. Property in

Canford Heath and Creekmoor always generates a good deal of interest, with many properties almost selling over night!

Open Houses This year we have increased our number of Open Houses, with fantastic results. Of our last 4 Open Houses we have carried out over 75 accompanied viewings, clients appreciating the time

saved and the interest generated, who otherwise may have to prepare their homes for numerous viewings spread over several days or even weeks. Due to the strong market conditions properties of all types are in short supply, if you are considering a sale or let, why not pop in and see us, or call Goadsby today for an appraisal on 01202 692145.

ASK THE LETTINGS EXPERT Sharon Canning Move On Rentals

I need to get my tenants out. Please help, my tenants are seriously behind in their rent. They have been tenants of ours for 3 years but in the last six months, their rental payments have been erratic and they now owe 3 months’ rent. They have told us they are on benefits and awaiting their payment, but now when we ring for an update, they say we are harassing them and have told us to leave them alone. My husband and I are so stressed about it as we cannot afford to pay two mortgages. What do we need to do?

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

There are a number of things you have highlighted. The first thing you must do is notify the benefits office they are over 8 weeks in arrears. This will ensure future payments come direct to you and not to them. The next advice is difficult to ascertain as you do not stipulate if they are in a tenancy or in a rollover. If they are in a tenancy, you can issue a Section 8 notice with various grounds including the rent arrears ground. This will give them two weeks to pay or move out, if they fail to do so you will then be able to apply to the courts. If they are in a rollover, you can issue a Section 21 Notice giving them two months’ notice to vacate. If they fail to vacate, you can then apply to the courts for possession. If you have a deposit, please ensure you are signed up to one of the schemes and you have given them the Prescribed Information (failure to have done this will result in the Section 21 Notice not being recognised in court and you being liable to a fine of up to 3 times the deposit amount) However, I do not advise you to attempt this on your own as the notices mentioned above must be served in certain ways, have certain wording and the dates given must be accurate. To get anything wrong will result in the courts throwing it out and you having to start all over again.

WE’RE IN THE PINK... It paraded on the catwalks and is now sweeping into interiors. House rallies support for Breast Cancer Awareness Month with some hot pink buys for the home.

124


Pink's packing a punch in decor and proving that it doesn't have to be confined to little girls' bedrooms and flirty boudoirs. With a whole variety of shades to choose from in the pink palette, it's easy to conjure a grown-up, cheery, sophisticated or downright sexy effect for an interior. And there couldn't be a more appropriate time to 'think pink', as October is Breast Cancer Awareness month with its signature pink campaign shade. It's also 'the' hot shade of the season in the fashion world, with pink coats reportedly this autumn's must-have garment. Where the catwalk leads, interiors always follow. "Pinks and soft corals have been seen on the catwalks featuring in Burberry and Antonio Berardi's fashion collections for 2014," says Judy Smith, colour consultant at Crown Paints.

Pretty flamingo Cushion £49, BoConcept

"They're also key in a palette of strong pastels that look fresh and new for interiors going forward. The wonderful thing about pink is that it's versatile, flattering and marries well with many different shades." If you're decorating with pink, she advises using different tones and textures of the same colour to add depth and interest. "Alternatively, bring a scheme right up to date by using pink and adding touches of something unexpected, like a flash of chartreuse (yellowy-green) or combining pinks with the highly fashionable, deep charcoal grey," says Smith. Those who just want to dip their toe could have a guilt-free splurge knowing they're helping a good cause, as a number of stores, including Laura Ashley, Marks & Spencer and Debenhams, are supporting breast cancer charities by donating a percentage of sales for certain pink items. Here's a selection of some of the prettiest pinks in town, some of which will see 10% of proceeds go to charity.

Debenhams - Good Wife Think Pink, storage tins (set of 3) £16, 10% of the sales go to Think Pink, Debenhams’ breast cancer initiative 125

VIBRANT POPS Add vibrant pops of pink with seating.

Give a bathroom a facelift with a pink bath, like the striking vintage-style La Provence bath, from £3,000, Catchpole & Rye. Keen DIYers could paint a bath themselves, but make sure you use specialist paint from a company such as Tubby.

THE FULLON EFFECT

126

Shake up a room by creating a feature wall with a vibrant pink wallpaper or paint. “Pink’s a complex colour which can lift a space, particularly when mixed with contrasting colours and natural materials, like wood,” says Mark Upstone, international head of display at Conran.

“Softer shades can be calming, or go bold and vibrant with pops of neon pink and contrast with white and chocolate brown.” Go tropical with Flamingo Beach Orchid Designer Wallpaper, £40 a roll, A Shade Wilder. Echo the look with a Flamingo neon pink cushion, £40, BoConcept.


A PALER SHADE Pink is perfect paired with neutrals for a soft, feminine look, or a crisp clean effect which suits kitchens and bathrooms. Lighter pinks soften a space and work well with a shabby chic decorating style, says Angela Whittaker at fabric specialists JAB Anstoetz. “Pink’s an easy and forgiving palette to use and dusty or pale pinks are especially soft and easy to live with, creating a comfortable airy feeling to a room.” If you want to brighten the space a little more, she suggests picking another pastel colour as an accent and using it for a flower arrangement, artwork or cushions. Laura Ashley has four pink papers and 10% of their sale price will go to Breakthrough Breast Cancer. One of the prettiest is the delicate Abbeville Floral Wallpaper, currently reduced from £30 a roll to £15.

INTERVIEW

HOW HAVE THINGS CHANGED FOR YOU SINCE GOTEK7 HAS TAKEN OFF?

“I HAVE SPENT MANY HOURS IN HELICOPTERS, TRACKING RANSOM MONEY AND KIDNAP VICTIMS”

Since then I have been very fortunate to travel the globe and shake hands with presidents, I have spent many hours in helicopters tracking ransom money and kidnap victims in Trinidad, its been a true roller coaster of exciting and hard times. Trinidad was certainly an eye opener. Gotek7 now supplies tracking solutions across the Globe with offices in France and a new one just opened in Ferndown, the future looks bright for Gotek7. We place Tracking devices in belts or even a pair of shoes, lots of people place them in tool boxes, lets face it everyone has a good chance of having something stolen these days, a shame but that’s the reality of it. Everyone’s got something they would hate to have taken from them, with the gotrackgadget not only will you be able to retrieve your property, you will also be able to ensure the ones who stole from you are caught.

SO, GAVIN, HOW DID THIS VENTURE COME ABOUT? My mother always said to me no matter what Christmas present she bought me, I would take it apart and try and make it better. I remember buying some radio transmitters from the USA, I was so excited to receive them, they arrived and I applied a small battery to them. I then pinned them to the garden shed and traveled up the dual carriageway, I need to stop and find a place that had no distractions and hopefully some open space, well Bournemouth football ground car park was just the place. I must of looked a fool standing on the roof of a smart car with a yaggi antenna in my hand facing the direction of west moors, waiting for a signal, then it came, the sound of a small beep on my receiver. I was so over whelmed that I could pick this signal up and my brain then started to go into over drive, this was it, this was the turn in my life when I felt I had something, I just needed to put it all together. I shall never forget that day.

Five minutes with...

Gavin Teale Making a business into a hobby is something that does not happen every day, however for the Director of Gotek7, this is exactly what happened.

We have launched www. gotrackgadget.com especially for those that are wanting to purchase a simple GPS tracker that works in over 200 countries. Its so cool that the board of this device was used inside the world cup in South Africa. If you need to be told when your item moves, now you can, it takes around 6-10 seconds to inform you. Viewing the track Gadget move life from ten seconds is certainly a thrill, this can be viewed on your PC and your mobile phone, click the street view button and watch it move in both modes. Simple and easy to use, that’s the key and it works straight out of the box. The Track Gadget has some great features that can be enjoyed by all, it will automatically inform you when something you love or own arrives or leaves a zone you have set on the panel, it also has a panic button feature, if pressed for more then 3 seconds, it will alert the users preferred contact list within seconds, informing them of the address details where the button has been pressed. The Track gadget was used in the Paris marathon and also the Gumball rally, it was placed in a Bugatti Veyron and allowed thousands to login and watch the race from London to Times Square in New York. There re so many applications for the Track Gadget, we even see it being used to protect plant and machinery.

Download this software, you may have to restart your computer. Go back to GPS Login and enter your Device ID when prompted. You will now be taken directly to your Control Panel and will be tracking live!

CAN I TRACK MORE THAN ONE DEVICE IN MY CONTROL PANEL? Yes, you can view as many devices as you like in your control panel. they were really confident in what they were doing then the fee they charge for sale should be sufficient. HOW LONG DOES THE BATTERY LAST ON THE TRACKER? The GoTEK7 contains a rechargeable Lithium battery allowing you to track for up to seven days. The endurance of the battery depends on which interval you set your device to send its data. The more data your tracker is sending, the quicker the battery will deplete. We also provide external high powered rechargeable batteries that can extend the tracker’s tracking capability for up to 3 months available in our shop. WILL MY TRACKER WORK ON HOLIDAY?

TRACK ANYTHING CARS PUSH CHAIRS BICYCLE MOTORBIKES PETS TOOL BOXES GARDEN EQUIPMENT CHILDREN THEFT OF BELONGINGS

WHAT CAN THE TRACK GADGET BE USED FOR?

DO I REQUIRE A SPECIAL MOBILE PHONE TO TRACK MY TRACKER? No, any mobile phone will allow you to instantly receive the full address details on where your tracker is.

KEEPING UP WITH JONES Jane Jones Jane Jones PR

Last week I was on my way to Mallorca with my mother - or so I thought. Hair was cut and nails manicured in anticipation then, at 5pm the evening before, I received a text from Ryan Air, which, assuming it was a generic ‘wish you a good flight’ message; I didn’t bother to read for an hour. So, fresh from the nail salon and all ready for a delicious dose of escapism, I checked my text. Lo and behold, it warned of a severe threat of flights being cancelled owing to strikes by French air traffic controllers. I spent the rest of the evening anxiously checking updates on Ryanair’s website but, alas, no further news materialised, other than the reality that we might not be taking our little sojourn in the morning. With hotel and car booked, it looked like we could lose a lot of money, though in the end there was no need for all that stress as - other than a slight delay our flight did indeed take off and what’s more, they delivered us there half an hour earlier. Phew - thank you Ryanair! Rewind to Bournemouth Airport, where we arrived with bags of time to spare. I wandered through security only to witness my elderly mother being frisked! It was her knees you see. The titanium sparked off a massive problem, which didn’t go down too well with security I can tell you, until they realised that there were no explosives about her person. I’m glad to say. I mentioned Halloween in my last House column two weeks ago; funny that, because the day the mag came out I happened to have a meeting at the Sandbanks Hotel where the management kindly offered to escort me down to their ‘hallowed ground’ AKA, the catacombs under the hotel, where I was to experience ghoulishly-themed rooms designed to spook the kiddies at half term.

Margaret, 75, living with cancer My day didn’t start too well. Everything had got on top of me and I felt really low. When I called the Macmillan Support Line, I didn’t know where to start. But somehow they helped me find the words. Just talking honestly about how I felt was such a relief. Now I don't have to cope with the bad days on my own. For cancer support at home, over the phone, call the Macmillan Support Line free

0808 808 00 00

It’s not just for hotel guests; I hasten to add, as locals are encouraged to venture in at their peril too. Down we went, winding our way through myriad corridors - talk about a labyrinth - and then a door opened. I was thrust into a literal black void with no knowledge of where I was going. I had one helper in front of me and two behind but I couldn’t see a thing. I thought: “what if this is a sick joke and the plan is to leave me in this dark hell hole and run away?” Call me paranoid, but I’d never met these people before and I was supposed to trust them in what can only be described as a disorientating, nail-biting situation. Think Hammer House of Horror. Little-by-little a smidgen of light appeared via an array of candelabra and flickering church candles. If I reveal more I will spoil it, but, trust me, treat the children over the half term and see them scream with delight. Finally, and of great importance to Poole, we’ve chalked a few impressive sporting credits recently. Poole Speedway, whose season started so dismally, are now proud winners of the Elite League grand final, sponsored at the home play off by our clients Meridian Lifts; what an incredible victory last Tuesday against the Birmingham Brummies. Matt and Neil, we are so proud of you and your team! In addition, our beloved PTFC are motoring on after their recent success over Hungerford and last week’s win against the old adversaries, Wimborne Town! They’re gunning for it and, in this new league, are showing great potential with both the FA Cup and FA Trophy. Watch this space or better still watch them live as you won’t be disappointed.

HOME IMPROVEMENTS

DIY EXPERT

MIND THE GAP FOR A WARMER HOME

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

THIS WEEK: Millions of UK homes have cavity walls - which means there’s a gap in the middle of exterior walls - and filling them with insulation can make your home more energy efficient. This means reduced heating costs, and you’ll be making your house ‘greener’ in the process. Finding out if your home has cavity walls isn’t hard. In general, houses built after 1920 do, and those built before don’t. However, you can’t tell by the house’s age alone. Look at the brickwork - if the bricks are all long (whole) ones, then the walls have a cavity in the middle, but if the bricks are both long and short ones, there’s no cavity because the short ones go through the wall. According to the Energy Saving Trust (www.energysavingtrust. org.uk), installing cavity wall insulation in a three-bed semi (with gas central heating) will produce savings of up to £140 a year. But the walls need to be in good condition and not exposed to driving rain, and the cavity must be at least 5cm deep. Homes less than 10 years

old should already have cavity wall insulation. If you’re not sure about yours, ask your local council’s building control department if they have a record of the walls being filled, or get a registered installer to drill a hole in the walls to see. A registered installer must also fit the insulation - this is not a DIY job. They’ll do this by making small holes in the external walls, blowing insulation material into them and then filling the holes. As long as all the external walls are accessible, the job should only take a few hours, depending on the size of your house. If there any problems with the walls, such as damp, these should be addressed first. Cavity wall insulation typically costs £450 to £500, so it won’t take too long to recoup the costs through energy savings. Insulating homes with solid exterior walls (usually brick or stone) is much more expensive, although the savings are greater. The Trust says that fitting internal wall insulation will save you about £460 a year, or £490 if you insulate externally

(based on the same three-bed, gas-heated semi). However, the work’s likely to cost thousands.

Insulating internally involves fitting rigid insulation or thermal/insulated plasterboard

inside the exterior wall, or creating a new, stud wall along the exterior wall and filling that with insulation. This is usually cheaper than insulating externally, but the affected rooms will be smaller as a result. Also, you often have to remove and hen reattach or replace any fittings like skirting boards, door frame and coving, so it’s a lot of work and disruption, which may be fine if you’re redoing the room anyway. Although costly, external wall insulation is less disruptive because the work is done outside. Insulation’s fixed to the exterior walls and covered with special cladding or render. As well as making the inside warmer and less draughty, this should improve weatherproofing, condensation levels and sound insulation, and will give the exterior walls a new look and lease of life. In both cases, solid wall insulation is probably something you’d only consider investing in if you’re planning to stay put for a long time, because while your home will be warmer, it will take many years to recoup the cost.

HOW-TO TIP APPLY PAINT The only way to apply paint is in thin coats, even if it takes several. It may seem easier to apply fewer, thicker coats, but it doesn’t work because the paint needs to be brushed or rollered out as you apply it, in order to get a good finish. Building up thin coats is also the only way to get good coverage - if the paint is still patchy after a couple of coats, thickly applied paint won’t help and won’t look good. Try to use a quick-drying, water-based paint, then if you have to do lots of coats, it won’t take too long.

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.

CLIENT TESTIMONIAL Well all I can really say is M.W.A.H has literally changed my life. On my first appointment I turned up in a little flat cap which I wore everywhere and would only take off for bed. Simone had a look at my hair, which was really thin. My doctor told me it was hereditary and there was nothing he could do to help, but Simone, on the other hand, suggested a volumizer. 3 days after I had it fitted, I went home and my kids and my husband could not believe the transformation. 6 months later I am writing this review and my confidence has grown and I just feel totally amazing. Thank you, Simone, and all the other girls at M.W.A.H.

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

NEW FIAT 500 GQ

Fiat has announced UK details of the new special series Fiat 500 GQ, which made its world debut earlier this year at the Geneva Motor Show. The 500 GQ is the result of a collaboration with GQ, the men’s magazine, and is aimed at “a predominately male audience,” Fiat says. It comes with exclusive twotone paintwork (Groove Metal Grey and Crossover Black), additional specification and unique styling features. Based on the 500S, the Fiat 500 GQ is available with the same engines (1.2 Petrol 69 hp, the award-winning 0.9 TwinAir 85 hp and the 1.3 MultiJet diesel 95 hp) and with both hatchback and convertible body types. The exterior features exclusive standard two-tone paintwork (metallic grey/black), a grey aesthetic liner, black mirror covers, GQ logo on the B-pillar and 16-inch Sport alloy wheels coupled with a contrasting orange 500 logo on the wheel trims. The Fiat 500 GQ’s interior features, as standard, a sports leather steering wheel with infotainment controls, Blue&Me system with Bluetooth technology, voice recognition, soft black leather seats with orange stitching and orange 500 logo fitted on the dashboard. Prices start at £13,110 for the 1.2 69 hp 500 GQ hatchback version and £15,930 for the 1.2 69 hp 500 GQ convertible version – prices that are £1,700 and £1,520 respectively more than the 500S versions but include additional specification and a number of unique styling features as standard. 148

FOCUS IS A TOP SELLER Ford Focus, the best-selling vehicle in the world last year, retains that ranking through the first quarter of 2013 with global registrations up 18 per cent compared to the same period in 2012. Based on analysis of Polk’s latest global registration data, 288,724 Focus vehicles were registered in the quarter ending March 31 – the most recent figures available. Cementing Focus’ grip on the bestselling passenger vehicle title was strong demand in key markets such as the U.K., Brazil and China. Focus registrations in the U.K. for the quarter totalled 25,081 vehicles. Brazil experienced an increase of 18 per cent with 7,227 Focus vehicles registered during the period. In China, 104,065 Focus vehicles were registered in first quarter 2013, representing an increase of 153 per cent compared to the first quarter of 2012. “The statistics speak for themselves,” said Roelant de Waard, vice president,

Marketing, Sales and Service, Ford of Europe. “Our global Focus has struck a chord with customers around the world because it offers remarkable technologies, excellent fuel economy and performance, super driving dynamics and all at a very competitive price.” European

customers can now order the all-new Focus Electric – the first full-electric vehicle to be built by Ford in Europe – in Saarlouis, Germany. The Focus Electric is also the first full-electric passenger car to be manufactured in Germany directly from a volume production line.

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, writes NICK FLETCHER. 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 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, kick-plates, part-leather upholstery and daytime running lights. 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 electrochromatic 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 side-space for your clutch foot - irritating on longer trips. That said, the Giulietta offers very good value, particularly in lower and mid-spec trim, and provides kudos and sporting pedigree that mainstream rivals cannot match.

RAMSAY BRINGS IT HOME After the success of his Ultimate Cookery Course, Gordon Ramsay has followed up with a new guide to home cooking. He tells Andy Welch about the pitfalls to avoid and offers a few recipes to try for yourself.

Whether you struggle to make toast or boast impressive kitchen skills, we could all learn a thing or two from Gordon Ramsay. The fiery TV star might be more famous nowadays for swearing at clueless restaurateurs and hotel owners, but don’t forget he’s also one of the best chefs this country’s ever produced, with 14 Michelin stars currently awarded to his restaurant empire. As he pointed out in his recent Channel 4 series Ultimate Cookery Course, he’s been a chef for more than 25 years, has worked for the best cooks in the world and, in turn, has taught some of the finest too. His new book and upcoming TV series, Gordon Ramsay’s Ultimate Home Cooking, which is due to air later this year, follows on from where the Ultimate Cookery Course left off, aiming to strip away any complexities about making amazing food in limited time. “I want to show that cooking can be fun and exciting,” says the 46-year-old fa150 ther-of-four. “It’s all about encouraging

people to take a fresh look at familiar ingredients, and throw in some new ones to create a delicious meal. I want people to have confidence in the kitchen.” He maintains that amateurs overcomplicating things is the biggest problem he sees in home kitchens, a place where simplicity and ease should be the main goals. He thinks people pile pressure on themselves too. “When you cook in a professional kitchen you must keep to a standard and ensure every element of the dish is perfect,” he says. “When you cook at home, you’re cooking for the people you love, family and friends. “Home cooking should be fun and if you make a mistake or something’s not perfect, it’s OK, you can keep practising. “Home cooks have become more savvy and adventurous with their ingredients and methods in the past 10 to 15 years,” he adds. “With the rise of farmers’ markets, artisan bakers and local butchers, there are a lot of different and interesting foods readily available. You’ve just got to learn to cook them properly.”

Of course, he recommends all of the recipes in his new book, but if pushed to pick out a few favourite dishes he’s particularly excited by the sausage and caramelised red onion hotpot and the home-made fish fingers, which give what can often be thought of as children’s food a grown-up, herby twist. Among other standout recipes are the beef stew with mustard suet dumplings - something every cook should have in their repertoire. Making home-made baked beans might seem like a faff, when the tinned varieties we’re used to are so good, but Ramsay’s version, served with crispy potato cakes, is definitely one to try, while the chocolate pistachio semifreddo’s easy to make but looks and tastes like something you might find in a quality bistro.

Three of the Best

Maille Pepper Sauce £1.49 for 200g, Tesco

Tiptree Organic Onion Relish, £1.69, available online various delis

Geeta's Premium Mango Chutney, £2.09 for 320g, Ocado


RECIPE

Home made Fish Fingers

TIP

INGREDIENTS

Drain on kitchen paper if necessary and season with a pinch of sea salt before serving.

500g white fish fillet, skinned (pollock is perfect) 4 sprigs of dill, leaves only 100g panko breadcrumbs 4tbsp plain flour

2 free-range eggs, beaten Sunflower oil, for frying Knob of butter Salt and freshly ground black pepper

METHOD Slice the fish into chunky fish finger shapes, down the fillet, rather than across it. Sprinkle lightly with salt, then cover and place in the fridge for 20-30 minutes to firm up. Finely chop the dill and mix with the breadcrumbs in a shallow bowl. Put the flour into another shallow bowl and season with salt and pepper. Put the beaten eggs into a third bowl. Using kitchen paper, rub any excess salt off the fish. Dust the fish pieces in flour and shake off any excess, then dip in the egg, making sure all the sides are coated. Allow any excess to drip off, then cover in the dill breadcrumbs. Roll the fish between your hands before cooking. This will get rid of any hard edges that might otherwise burn in the pan. Place a large heavy-based frying pan over a medium-high heat and add enough sunflower oil to lightly coat the bottom. When hot, shallow-fry the fish fingers on either side for three minutes. Add the butter towards the end of the cooking time to help the fish fingers crisp up and turn a deep golden colour.

RECIPE

Carrot, cumin & orange salad

SERVES 4

Ingredients 5 carrots, peeled and grated Zest and juice of one orange 75g pumpkin seeds 50g sunflower seeds 1½tsp cumin seeds, toasted 1tbsp Dijon mustard

1tbsp runny honey 1tbsp white wine vinegar 3-4tbsp olive oil 2tbsp torn coriander leaves 2tbsp torn mint leaves Sea salt

Method Mix the carrots in a bowl with the orange zest and juice, the pumpkin and sunflower seeds. Toast the cumin seeds in a dry frying pan until golden. Allow to cool, then grind in a pestle and mortar with a little salt, then stir into the carrot mixture. Combine the mustard, honey, vinegar and olive oil in a bowl. Add the mint and coriander leaves, then taste and adjust the seasoning as necessary. Pour over the salad and toss well. This can be eaten straight away, or will keep for up to two days in the fridge.

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

Halloween also known as All Hallows’ Eve is celebrated annually on October 31st. It originates from pagan festivals held around the end of October in England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland. People believed that, at this time of year, the spirits of dead people could come alive and walk among the living. They thought that it was important to dress up in costumes when venturing outside, to avoid being harmed by the spirits. Halloween is now one of the largest celebrated events in the UK with Brits spending just under £300 million in 2012. Spend a little less than that by having some fun with our ghost cupcakes for your Halloween celebrations this year.

NEW WINTER WINE & DINE MENU

RECIPE

1 COURSE £10.95 2 COURSE £14.95 3 COURSE £18.95

Ghost Cupcakes Ingredients 1. 140g butter, softened

Method

MAKES 12

INCLUDING A GLASS OF HOUSE WINE

1. Preheat oven to 180C. Line 12 muffin tins with cases.

2. 250g caster sugar 3. 2 free-range eggs, lightly beaten 4. 1 tsp vanilla extract 5. 150g plain flour 6. 75g self-raising flour 7. 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda 8. 50g cocoa powder 9. 200ml/7fl oz buttermilk or plain yoghurt Marshmallow icing 10. 250g sugar 11. 120g golden syrup 12. 4 free-range eggs, whites only 13. 2 tbsp chocolate  sugar strands

2. For the cakes, mix the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs a little at a time beating well. Add the vanilla extract with the last of the egg. 3. Sift the flours, bicarbonate of soda and cocoa into a large mixing bowl. 4. Gently fold the flour mix into the butter mixture, add the buttermilk until combined. 5. Place a dessertspoonful into each muffin case, bake for 20 minutes until firm. Place on a wire rack to cool. 6. For the icing, place the sugar, golden syrup and 4 tablespoons of water into a saucepan. Heat gently, stirring until the sugar dissolves. Bring to the boil then cook for 5-6 minutes. Remove from heat. 7. While the syrup is boiling, in a large bowl whisk the egg whites until soft peaks form. Slowly mix in the cool sugar syrup. Mix for about 10 minutes until the icing is thick and glossy. 8. Place into a piping bag with a large plain nozzle. Pipe a circle of icing on each cupcake, then holding the bag upright over the centre, pipe a tall mound of icing, quickly pulling the tip away to form a small peak. 9. Add chocolate for eyes or any other decoration.

BUCKHOLME TOWERS SCHOOL AND NURSERY MEMORIAL FOR A DEVOTED CARETAKER AND HIS WIFE. “Alan worked as a caretaker, she managed the office. Alan and Heather John were the spirits of Buckholme and they both played a huge part in making it the place we know and love today,” says Iain Robertson, Headmaster for Buckholme Towers School in Lower Parkstone. The married couple dedicated a combined 30 years to the independent school which provides education for children from two years and nine months, up to 11 years old. Sadly Heather passed away in 2010 and Alan’s death followed three years later. To keep their memory alive, a plaque was placed in the hall, and was named ‘The Alan and Heather John Memorial Hall.” (pictured) Iain reflects on how they made a difference to the school. He said: “Every morning when the children arrived, pupils’ laughter would echo around the playground and you always knew it was because Alan was chasing them and winding them up into a frenzy. This always irked the teachers as they were tasked with calming the children down before the morning’s lessons.

“ALAN LOVED WORKING AT BUCKHOLME FOR TWO REASONS: TO BE WITH HIS WIFE AND FOR THE PUPILS.”

“Heather was a great inspiration to the children and we even had a trophy named after her – ‘The Heather John Can-Do Cup’. She would always put 100 per cent into every task and if she couldn’t do something, she would find out how.” Heather had many hats including school nurse, office manager and assistant to the headmaster. She hated technology and everything Buckholme related was written down on “little pieces of paper”. Heather’s passing shocked the school and had a huge impact on Alan. Iain continued: “Alan worked as caretaker for two reasons, to be with his wife, who he adored and for the pupils. He wasn’t the same after Heather died. He was still upbeat and continued with his work but you could see that he was missing her hugely.”

In March 2013, a fire devastated 80 per cent of the school building and lessons we’re moved to the neighbouring Parkstone United Reformed Church. Iain added: “When the fire struck Buckholme everyone felt a huge loss. It was the end of an era. The news hit Alan hard as it was the place where he shared many happy times with his wife and he had fond memories there. He could see the children were upset and this unsettled him. In an attempt to cheer them up he would put on a hard hat and search through the rubble to find items and clean them off. He found pencil cases and soft toys and gave them back to the pupils.” Months after the fire Alan passed away. Iain commented: “His death overshadowed the fire and the children suffered another overwhelming loss. Lots of tears were shed, especially with the youngest children as they associated Buckholme with him. “Alan wasn’t your typical caretaker, he was outspoken and some jobs irritated him - he vowed to never pick up a paintbrush. This wasn’t a problem, it added to his charm.” The newly built Buckholme Towers School opened to pupils on the first day of term in September and has many modern features and upgraded classrooms. Iain added: “The new building is a huge improvement on how it used to be, but much of its homely charm still remains. Alan and Heather were never known to dwell on situations and they would be proud that the school is up and running and that the pupils are happy in their new surroundings. They have left a wonderful legacy and it is one that we will cherish dearly.”
