APOLLO BLINDS

If you’re craving a lick of luxury for your home, look no further than metallics glittering gold, shimmering silver and burnished bronze. Precious metal tones sashayed and sparkled their way down the fashion catwalks, and now they’re making their mark on our decor. Decorators, designers and makers have all joined the gold rush, recognising that metallics can bring instant glamour and richness to settings. They’re being seen as accents on accessories, as furniture embellishment and as a brushed finish on textiles.

“Gold, particularly, is so much part of our myths and legends, with childhood stories often having pirates hunting for it,” says Frederick Wimsett, who hand-paints Chinoiserie murals which feature 24-carat gold leaf, and whose clients include fashion designer Alice Temperley. “Gold is literally woven into the fabric of our society. Around half of my projects now feature it in some way. It’s warm, light reflective and never goes out of fashion.” Bringing on the bling couldn’t be better timed, as that most

glittering of seasons - Christmas - is on the horizon. But investing in some decor treasure for your home won’t be a waste, as this look’s set to last long after the baubles have been packed away. Metallics are featuring significantly in next year’s home collections and the trend will forge its way on to the high street. “The metallics trend is definitely going to stick around and is being employed across the industry, from tiles to fabrics, wallpapers and furniture,” says Steve Charles, co-founder of rare stone and decorative surface specialists Decorum Est. “It’s been channelled through some of the world’s leading fashion houses and we’re beginning to see it starring in interiors. “Our latest tile collection, Hollywood, has a blend of white, gold and silver hues and is a nod to the decadence and drama of the post-Gatsby era.” Whether you’re a gold-digger, silver-seeker or just burning for bronze, there’s sure to be something to appeal - and it needn’t tarnish the bank balance.

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.

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.

INTERIORS

OH, CHRISTMAS TREE! Deck the halls by all means, but it’s the tree which is a key focal point during the Christmas season. House reveals this year’s top tree trends and beautiful baubles.

36


Decorating the tree is an enjoyable ritual, but that doesn’t mean this seasonal focal point has to look the same every year. It could be time to shake up your style and choose from one of the fresh new decor trends for trees so that yours is star of the show this December. “Dressing the tree is one of my Christmas highlights, and a great chance to get the whole family involved,” says interior designer Joanna Wood. “I always take the time to plan my tree in advance and try to create a slightly different look and theme each year, to keep the tree looking fresh and exciting.”

Onion bauble, £6, www.houseoffraser.co.uk

By all means rely on that cherished collection of Christmas decorations, she says - there’s no need to rush out and buy a complete new set - but add a few pieces to bring a new look to life. “Bring character to a tree by varying the style and texture of baubles and ornaments when decorating,” she says. “There’s no reason why classic gold decorations can’t be mixed with a brilliant red berry garland and red hearts, or a sleek snow-white scheme can’t have rustic, white wooden decorations, such as a flock of white birds, for a more Scandi feel. “It’s all about experimenting and not relying on the same set of decorations year after year. Remember to create height and depth with the placement of your decorations, and vary hanging positions.

Gisela Graham Natural Feather Clip On Partridge £4, www.tch.net

“Decorations can be tied to the tips of trees or sit on top of branches, as well as hanging from the them. Experiment with colour and, most importantly, have fun with your tree.” Choose from one of Wood’s four favourite themes for dressing your Christmas tree this year.

INTERIORS

Silver Handprints Keepsake Christmas Star Decoration, £60, www.giftwrappedandgorgeous.co.uk

CLASSIC KITSCH COCKTAIL For a witty take, mix traditional decorations with retro-style or kitsch additions, suggests Wood. “Accentuate the traditional red, green and white decorations that are so popular at this time of year with colourful character pieces for a retro, playful look,” she says. “Start at the base of your tree and spread out your traditional decorations evenly. Finish by adding your character pieces on the ends of branches in the central section of the tree,

Glass Santa on Scooter, £21.99, www.joannawood.co.uk

Personalised bauble, £12.99, www.gettingpersonal.co.uk

WINTER PALACE

This look plays on the romance and glamour of winter, with ice tones and plenty of glitter. “Picture a luxurious ice palace for inspiration, with crisp, clean snowflakes on the windows,” says Wood. “Place any larger decorations

38

(and those with glitter) aside, as your star items, and position your base decorations first, selecting those in silver, white and neutral tones. “Once happy with the spread of your base items, add the finishing touches with glitter and larger snowflakes.”

to ensure they catch the eye. “This is a fun, tongue-incheek approach and a retrostyle Santa works perfectly as a character piece to complete the look.” More traditional decorations could include a Personalised Bauble, which comes stamped with a personalised greeting, £12.99, Getting Personal, or a Hanging Bells Tree Decoration, £4, Debenhams. Crown the whole effect with a Crimbleberry Wood Santa Tree Topper, £12, Marks & Spencer.


GOLDEN GRANDEUR Muted metallics lend an aura of faded grandeur, and old gold mixes well with copper and bronze touches too. “The first and most important rule when dressing your Christmas tree with gold is don’t skimp on lights, and always put them on first so you hang the baubles around them,” says Wood. “The metallic shimmer of the gold baubles will complement the lights perfectly and create a magical sparkle effect. To fill in gaps, and make the tree look beautifully festive, use groups of three gold baubles, rather than just one on the end of each branch. Tie these baubles together with silver or white cotton ribbon to keep them perfectly in place.” Frame a treetop angel or star with a cluster of gold-sprayed leaves or gold ribbons to accentuate it, and encircle with lights, she suggests.

LIVE ON THE BRIGHTSIDE Colour’s cool for homes right now, and stamping your style on rooms with bright shades is an easy way to brighten up the home this winter.

BRIGHT INTERIORS

60

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

THE BEAR & THE HARE John Lewis £7 million Christmas advertising campaign uses hand-drawn animation for the first time

The beautifully hand-crafted advert tells a classic story of friendship at Christmas. Featuring best friends a bear and a hare, it continues the long standing focus of John Lewis adverts on going the extra mile at Christmas. The advert has been created using handdrawn animation and represents the first time 2D animation in 3D sets have been used in an advert in the UK. The advert went live on the retailer’s social media channels on Friday 8th November at 9am and launched on Saturday 9th November, when, in a first for itv, John Lewis took a whole advert break in the X Factor exclusively. It was preceded by a teaser campaign, exclusively on itv. The story opens as winter is drawing in, and the fun and excitement of preparing for Christmas begins. The first snow-

72

flake falls and lands on the bear’s nose, the hare starts to feel sad, as he realizes that winter is nearing and soon his friend will be leaving to hibernate and will once again be missing Christmas. As the woodland animals begin preparing for Christmas in earnest, the bear can not hold off his winter sleep any longer, and leaves the hare to go to his cave. We see the bear sleeping as the days and nights pass. Whilst all the other animals are getting into the Christmas spirit busy decorating the forest and wrapping presents, we see the hare is finding it difficult to get excited as he’s missing his friend the bear. But he soon perks up when he has a great idea for a very special present for his friend. Featuring the strapline ‘give someone a Christmas they’ll never forget’, the story evokes the excitement of a first Christmas and the importance of friendship

and thoughtfulness. Craig Inglis, marketing director, John Lewis, comments: “We wanted our advert to reflect the importance of finding the right gift for friends and loved ones, a theme which we have built on for a number of years. Through the use of hand-crafted animation, we’re hoping to evoke nostalgia and build anticipation ahead of Christmas.” Created by advertising agency Adam & Eve/ddb, the ad is set to a cover of Keane’s 2004 hit ‘Somewhere Only We Know’ sung by Lily Allen.

BAILEY DRIVE RACES TOWARDS COMMUNITY BENEFITS The former MOD site at Bailey Drive will become home to a brand new supermarket, 25 affordable homes and will offer the local community a range of other great benefits. Thanks to the plans, agreed by Christchurch Borough Council in June 2013, it is expected that nearly 500 long term and short term jobs will be created by the site.

ASDA IS COMING TO CHRISTCHURCH The former MOD site at Bailey Drive will become home to a brand new ASDA supermarket. The new store is expected to create 375 new jobs for the town when it opens in 2015. In addition to the jobs, a range of benefits including 350 free car parking spaces, a new café that overlooks the River Stour and two electric car charging points. Quantum Group CEO, David Hines, said “It is great news for Christchurch and its residents. Asda are very excited to be setting up a new supermarket in the town as well as playing a part in the growth of Christchurch’s economy”.

The 25 new and affordable homes will be a mixture of one and two bedrooms. They are being built to support those on low incomes and first time buyers by offering a range of shared equity and social renting options. Simon Hammond, Quantum Group’s Community Engagement Director, updated us with the next steps on the dwellings: “We are in discussions with a local housing association, who will become responsible for managing these homes. We hope to have further details in early 2014 and the building of the homes will commence shortly after.” The five acre development at Bailey Drive has historical sentiment for the residents of Christchurch. The Bailey Bridge is a renowned invention, used during World War II, and was

created on the site by Donald C. Bailey, OBE. Quantum Group, owners of the site, substantiated the intention to commemorate Bailey. CEO David Hines confirmed “We are planning to build a statute in remembrance to Donald Bailey and also place a number of plaques around the site as well”. Bailey Drive backs onto the River Stour and architects at Quantum Group have used the river, to influence the design of the site. “We are opening up the space, so local residents can use it,” said Head Architect, Neil White “which means planting over fifty trees, creating a children’s play park and a new outdoor fitness area. We are also planning to build a new bridge over the River Stour, towards the playing fields at Iford, and a new ferry point that will travel down to the Quay.” Quantum Group had hundreds of suggestions from locals on what could be done at the site. “We were specifically asked to build the new homes, provide the play park and fitness area.” said Neil White, “This is a scheme designed by the Christchurch community itself”.

NON-PROFIT VENTURE BENEFITS CHRISTCHURCH

This is a very exciting time for Christchurch. To celebrate the news, Quantum Group has decided to seed The Christchurch Foundation Trust with £1million from the profits of our deal with Asda

A brand new ‘not-for-profit’ enterprise launched this month, focused on the continual development of Christchurch town and its community. The Christchurch Foundation Trust was the idea of employees at Quantum Group, developers of the former MOD site at Bailey Drive.

very exciting time for Christchurch. To celebrate the news, Quantum Group has decided to seed The Christchurch Foundation Trust with £1million from the profits of our deal with Asda”. The £1million donation will be made the day Asda opens its doors to the public.

The trust will be working with residents and businesses to provide grants and support projects that are focused on economic, social and environmental topics. Part of the application process will be to indicate how a project has a positive impact on Christchurch and the surrounding borough.

In addition to the £1million already secured, the trust will also be working to identify new and additional sources of funds, which will further enhance and continue its work. Simon elaborates on how he and the board might do this. “Part of the role of the new board will be to identify ways of generating even more funds to help Christchurch. We are already researching ways of generating donations, funding partners and ‘match funding’ opportunities from other organisations”.

Simon Hammond, Community and Engagement Director of Quantum Group, is the Acting Chairman of the trust until a Chairman can be appointed: “I have spent a number of months listening to the Christchurch community. Many of the local residents are passionate about Christchurch and have expressed how keen they are to play an active part in its continual development. To be involved in forming The Christchurch Foundation Trust is a great privilege for me“. Simon’s role for the coming months is to work with Quantum Group employees, who are giving up their free time, to bring the trust to fruition. One of the first priorities is to set up an independent board that will run and manage The Christchurch Foundation Trust: “I will be searching for this new board in early 2014,” says Simon “so that we can create some strategic direction and really engage with the Christchurch community on what their thoughts and ideas are”. Last week the owner of Bailey Drive, Quantum Group, announced that Asda is planning to open a new store at the site in 2015. CEO David Hines said: “This is a

Over the coming months the trust will be speaking to charities, schools, business, residents and other organisations on how it can help them and the town. The trust is also at the very early stages of working with the youth charity, Young Enterprise, on how the two organisations can benefit Christchurch. Both organisations will be exploring a range of ideas that will allow Christchurch students, participating in the programme, to get involved in the local economy, meet their customers and potentially sell their products. More details will become available in 2014. If you are interested in finding out more about The Christchurch Foundation Trust, you can visit their website. On the website you will find information about the goals, the new board, some of the great opportunities it is exploring and even how to apply.

Ferndown doesn’t stand still - and neither do we

I

n 1931, Ferndown - governed by the parish council of Hampreston until 1972 - was a small parish of some 2,500 people. These days it has nearly 17,000 and much of the woodland and heath that surrounded the old town is now home to a popular, thriving residential community. At Wellstead & Wellstead, we’re proud of our contribution to the town’s development - helping families, people retiring or second-homers buy their perfect property. And just as Ferndown continues to flourish, so do we: as part of our merger with YOUhome, Bournemouth’s premier estate agent, we are now letting properties in Ferndown too.

YOUhome’s experienced rental and property management team will be working from our Ringwood Road office, bringing local landlords and tenants all the benefits of their lettings and property management expertise. YOUhome also offers the reassurance that comes from being reglated by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and members of the Association of Residential Lettings Agents (ARLA), adopting their high standards of client-care and transparency. Drop by the office or get in contact to see how our growing team can help you buy, sell, let or rent property in this special part of Dorset.

ASK THE LETTINGS EXPERT Sharon Canning Move On Rentals

What are your rights when the landlord is selling the property that you rent? I have just been told by my landlord that he wants to sell the property I am renting from him. What are my rights and how much notice can I expect from my landlord to move out? Also, I have repeatedly asked my Landlord for a copy of the Certificate showing where my Deposit is, but to date have not received one, how do I know it is safe?

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

If you are currently in an Assured Tenancy Agreement, then you can legally stay where you are until this expires, this also means you cannot vacate prior to the end of the tenancy unless your landlord agrees for you to do so. If your Tenancy Agreement has expired and you are on a rolling contract then the Landlord must give you two months written notice and you must give one month written notice from your rent due date. You must also allow reasonable access for viewings; however they must give you a minimum of 24 hours notice. If you have entered an Assured Shorthold Tenancy after April 2007, then your Agreement should state where your Deposit monies are being held, most landlords use either Deposit Protection Service or Tenancy Deposit Scheme. You should have received a copy of the certificate at the commencement of your Tenancy along with the‘Prescribed Information’, however if your landlord has not protected your deposit (which is a legal requirement) then you can claim through the courts up to three times the original amount. Under the recent ruling of ‘Superstrike Ltd v Rodrigues’ if you entered your Tenancy prior to April 2007 and you have been on a rolling contract since, it was originally understood and advised by the deposit schemes that the landlord did not need legally have to protect the deposit, however the judge ruled that a ‘rollover’ tenancy did in fact constitute a new tenancy and therefore the deposit should have been protected. All tenants who are in an Assured Shorthold Tenancy should be aware of which scheme their deposit is held with and have a copy of the Prescribed Information.

SWITCH ON TO SAFETY

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

THIS WEEK: CHECK THE RELIABILITY OF YOUR HOMES WIRING Unless a property is new, or you have it newly rewired yourself, it is hard to know how old the wiring is and, crucially, if it is safe. There are tell-tale signs of old electrical work, such as surface-mounted cables, old-fashioned light switches, flexes and ceiling roses, and fuse boxes that use fuse wire, rather than pop-out fuses. However, fuse boxes are sometimes replaced without the rest of the wiring being updated, and many with popout fuses don’t comply with current regulations.

like these are less expensive and disruptive than a full rewire, but they may reveal problems with the wiring that you hadn’t anticipated.

The only way to know for sure is for a qualified electrician to check the electrics. This should be done every 10 years anyway, even if you think everything is fine, and whenever you buy a property, as if you do need to rewire, it can cost thousands of pounds.

However essential though, changing the electrics is always a dirty and disruptive business. If often involves chasing out (making a hole in) wall and ceiling plaster to create channels, and taking up or chasing out the floors, making it hard to remain living there - or even having furniture there - while the work is being done.

Of course, a full rewire isn’t always necessary - your home’s wiring may just need updating, such as adding or moving sockets or wiring in new light fittings. Smaller jobs

If you are doing major building work, such as converting the loft or adding an extension, the electrics in the whole house or flat will usually need to be tested in order to get a completion certificate for the building work. Again, this can throw up unforeseen problems, which can be expensive to put right.

Rewiring takes place in two stages - the first and the second fix. For the first fix,

PRODUCT OF THE WEEK

the cables are laid and the messy work is done to get them in place. The electrician should leave you with a few, temporary sockets that still work, so you can still operate extension leads from them, but the new cables won’t be live which leaves you with very limited electrics. Before the second fix, the rooms have to be replastered - the plasterer should fill in the chases made by the electrician and then skim the walls and ceilings. After this, the electrician can wire up everything and connect the new fuse box, so you’re back in business. It’s legal to do some, minor electrical work yourself, but if you don’t know what you’re doing or you just want to play safe, employ a qualified electrician (checking their credentials and references). The easiest option is to use an electrician who belongs to a governmentapproved ‘competent person scheme’, such as NICEIC

(see www.niceic.com). These electricians can self-certify that their work complies with building regulations - Part P of building regulations covers electrical work and applies in England and Wales. If your electrician doesn’t belong to a competent person scheme and the work they’ve done falls under building regulations, you’ll have to pay a building control officer from the local council to check it, or an improved inspector, who does the same job but for a private company. Alternatively, you can ask an

electrician who belongs to a competent person scheme to inspect and test the first electrician’s work, which is often a cheaper option. Plenty of qualified electricians know exactly what they’re doing, but can’t sign off their own work because they haven’t passed additional exams. The key thing is, though, that you get the relevant completion certificate so you can prove that the electrical installation is safe and legal, something often essential when it comes to selling or renting out your home.

HOW-TO TIP A SOLID BASE

ELECTRIC FAN HEATER If you’re going without central heating while your home is being replastered, it’s not only hard to keep warm, it’s also hard to get the plaster dry enough and ready to paint so the radiators can actually go back on. That’s where the Stanley Portable 2kW Electric Fan Heater (£49.99, Screwfix) comes in. This heater is functional on a building site, but is compact enough to look comfortable in your home. This fan heater is also good for heating a garage, shed or workshop - if you know someone who spends a lot of time in theirs, it could be the perfect Christmas present!

Painting over a dark ceiling or wall with a pale colour? Don’t waste time and effort doing multiple coats use basecoat emulsions, which are white, and cover up much better than standard white emulsions, meaning fewer coats are required. Try Crown Performance Series Basecoat in Pure Brilliant White (£20.99 for 2.5ltr, Homebase), which fills hairline cracks too. 105

Jane Jones Jane Jones PR

This is not the easiest column to write as we never know what’s around the next corner. Sadly last week I was called by her great friend and neighbour, Marjorie, my mum had had a stroke. My mum is 78, very active and president (captain at least twice for the ladies) of Sherborne Golf Club where she has been a member for over 50 years. She had been feeling unwell for a couple of days but I had no idea of this or what was about to transpire. I was called out of the blue; my mum had been carted off to Yeovil hospital by ambulance! At 3.15pm she called her doctor advising the receptionist that she had tingling in her mouth and hand. She was told that the doctor would come and see her after surgery; little did she know that surgery had not even started. Many calls later she was advised paramedics were on their way; they did not arrive. She called Marjorie as she needed some support, by now she was feeling much worse and from around 4.30pm Marjorie continued to call the doctor assured by the receptionist that they were on the case. At 6.52pm the doctor called. Marjorie answered the phone just at the time the answer phone cut in. A longer than necessary call (I have it all recorded) ensued with the doc suggesting that my mother had an agitated friend, he then asked her about her mouth and was it still tingling. She described her mouth as feeling similar to a dentist’s injection and that her arm was still feeling limp, he conceded she might have had a stroke and rather than keep my mum waiting whilst he saw his last patient it might be prudent to call an ambulance. Not long afterwards she needed to go to the bathroom where unfortunately she fell; sadly Marjorie could not help her as she was without the use of her arm also, having just had a shoulder replacement. Talk about blind leading the blind and I don’t mean this in a defamatory way, this is exactly how Marjorie described it. She could not move my mum and nor could my mum move. Around 7.15 the paramedics arrived and Marjorie asked them what had taken so long – they said this was their first call , in other words the last shift were unaware of my mother’s ailment. Around 8.10pm an ambulance arrived and took my mum to Yeovil hospital where she still remains some 12 days later. I have done my research about a stroke and discovered that we should all be aware of certain traits; I remember there was a big TV campaign not that long ago, look at a person with regard to speech, arm movement etc. I cannot understand why the doctor did not call an ambulance straight away and whilst I accept the receptionist is not medically trained surely she should have headed the warning signs and got on the case even if the doctor was too busy! Mum lives in the centre of Sherborne yet it took nearly 5 hours. I ask myself could the stroke have been avoided. On a lighter note, my mum is speaking normally and still has her incredible sense of humour. I visit her 4 times a week and she amuses me with stories about the ward and all that goes on. The food is not worth discussing as it is so bad and Yeovil needs to do something about this fast, surely in order to spur a patient on to recovery the meals should resemble something better than slop!

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.

South Coast Dental Specialists

Specialists in smile creation

From dentures to teeth in a day! For some people, teeth can be gradually lost over years until al tipping point when the person can no longer eat or smile normally. Other people can suffer from a gum infection which erodes the bone that supports the teeth making them loose drift and splay. The teeth may still be present in the mouth biut the looseness makes eating very difficult and the appearance may be unsightly due to the gaps and very long teeth. Both these situations which have caused many teeth to be either lost or about tho fall out can leave people feeling hopeless. Often people realise that they need a bit of treatment to get them smiling, talking and eating normally once again. For some, the idea of having removeable dentures to replace the teeth is unacceptable. Now, South coast dental specialists are offering a treatment to remove any remaining and put back fixed teeth in just one day, and avoids the need for dentures at any stage of the treatment. If the remaining teeth are hopeless they can be gently removed and four dental implants placed. Dental implants are metal roots that support the replacement teeth on top. A Bridge with 10 teeth on it is then made and fitted to the implants on the same day, so the patient walks out with fixed teeth that look better and eating comfort is regained. Essentially this means that if there are problem teeth in one jaw they are sorted out in one day.

If someone has upper and lower teeth that are beyond repair then both can be fixed in one go. This treatment is also excellent for people with no teeth, especially those who are wearing dentures at the moment, which are loose and moving because there is very little gum and bone support to keep them in. Due to the technique involved this can be cheaper than other fixed implant solutions, and can be carried out in combination with sedation to give extra support to nervous patients. For people who are embarrassed at the condition of their mouths, be reassured that at the South Coast Dental Specialists team is there to put you back on the right track and help you enjoy the everyday pleasures in life once again. Consultation and comprehensive examination and planning are first of all carried out to see if you are suitable. We then produce a treatment plan and a no obligation quotation including all the details you need to make an informed decision. We also have payment plans and alternative treatment options to suit all budgets. We hope to see you soon and get you smiling, eating, laughing and kissing with confidence.

HEALTH & BEAUTY

It’s quite possible you spend more time at your desk than anywhere else. Guilty? While overtime and hard work might lead to a pay rise (if you’re lucky!), your skin could be paying the price in the long run. Even the most clean and tidy person can neglect their desk environment in a haze of deadlines and to-do lists. If your work space regime is in need of an overhaul, look no further than the mirror for declutter motivation.

bent slightly forward, staring at a screen, you can shorten the neck muscles and increase the gravitational pull on the jawline, eventually leading to the formation of jowls. “Make sure that your computer screen is correctly positioned at eye level to keep your face in a lifted, forwardfacing position as much as possible,” advises Zander. “This helps prevent a drooping jawline, which can be caused by looking down too much.” Lean lines Even office workers who abide by textbook health and safety seated positions can end up slumping, with head in hands, before clocking-off time.

Researchers measured DNA sections called telomeres and found that individuals with the most stressful jobs had the shortest telomeres - and when telomeres become too short, cells either die or become damaged. “When you get stressed, your sebaceous glands also produce more oil, and this can result in adult acne,” Zander explains. “Even if it’s just for five minutes, try and get out the office for a de-stressing walk. Getting out in the open is also great for helping to top up vitamin D levels, which stimulates the production of elastin and collagen.” Bacteria build-up

“There are such things as ‘sleep lines’,” says Zander. “Sleeping in the same position night after night means that the lines you create whilst asleep can become permanent.

If you discover recurring spots on one side of your face, your desk phone might be the culprit. Alarmingly, phones can carry 10-20 times more bacteria than a toilet seat.

Home office or corporate desk, beautify your work space and reward yourself with clear skin.

“The effect is replicated if you constantly lean your face on your hands at your desk day after day.” Adjust your chair height so that your forearms rest firmly on the desk - this will make you less likely to lean on your hands and make you more aware of your sitting position.

Zander says: “Keyboards and phones can harbour a lot of bacteria. Using these appliances and then touching your face, or touching a phone to your face, can transport bacteria onto the skin causing blockages to the pores and possible infections.”

Slack jowls

Skin stress

We can blame the ageing process for slackened skin, but your desk posture can add to sagging jawline woes. If you regularly sit for extended periods of time with your head

Work-related stress and exhaustion have a damaging effect on critical DNA in the cells in the body, according to a 2012 study published in scientific journal PLOS ONE.

“You may think you’re getting ahead putting in the hours at your desk, but it could be taking its toll on your face,” warns Jill Zander, founder of the Jill Zander Skin Rejuvenation Clinic.

CHILDCARE

BOURNEMOUTH’S CHILDCARE HERO’S ANNOUNCED The Early Years Sector Awards is an annual event held to celebrate outstanding achievements within the childcare and children’s centre workforce. All those invited frequently go the extra mile to provide the best possible care and education for our children and support for their families. The event is managed by the Early Years Service within Bournemouth Borough Council and continues thanks to the generosity of local businesses and organisations that support the evening via sponsorship. The Early Years Sector provides one of the most important and essential roles within modern society. This event recognises the professionalism and dedication of Bournemouth’s childcare and children’s centre workforce. Often overlooked and underpaid, we place our future generation in their hands and this is our chance to say thank you for the amazing daily work which takes place locally.

130

Other awards presented on the night include celebrating children’s centre volunteers and the first childcare workers to be awarded with the new Gold Healthy Early Years Accreditation. The winners of Bournemouth’s Childcare and Children’s Centre Workers of the Year were recently announced at the Early Years Sector Awards. Winners were surprised at an exclusive awards event held at the BIC. Over 400 local parents nominated their childcare and children’s centre workers.

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

SLOW DOWN CALL Road safety charity Brake and Direct Line insurance are calling for drivers to help make streets safer for kids to walk and cycle, by committing to slow down to 20mph around homes, shops and schools. Brake and Direct Line’s survey of 1,000 drivers from across the UK finds: • Nearly two thirds (64%) think traffic is too fast on some or all local roads for the safety of kids on foot and bikes and 65% want action to make walking and cycling safer around schools, homes and in town and village centres • However six in ten (63%) admit to driving at 35mph or faster in a 30 limit and 29% do this at least once a week • Two thirds (67%) explained they feel pressure from other drivers to go faster in built up areas, while a third (33%) say they give in to this pressure to make them drive faster. Five children under 16 are killed or seriously injured when walking or cycling every day in the UK. Brake says reducing vehicle speeds can make a massive difference to the safety of kids on foot and riding bikes. At 20mph, drivers have much more time to react, to help them stop in time if they need to, for example if a child runs out into the road. Brake is urging drivers everywhere to help make roads safer for kids by committing to slow down to 20mph around homes, schools and shops, even where the limit is 30mph. “While it’s important kids and young people receive road safety education, it’s crucial that drivers take on the ultimate responsibility for protecting children on foot and bike. Our research shows there’s a contradiction in what some drivers say they want and the way they 134 behave at the wheel.”

ROAD TEST RENAULT SCENIC XMOD Renault’s new Scenic XMOD may sound as if it could be ex-Ministry Of Defence but it is just clever trendy re-packaging of the standard Scenic compact MPV, giving it a more funky street image and greater appeal to younger buyers. This idea certainly works, the XMOD attracted lots of attention and plenty of admiration during my test week. Much of the re-styling is visual, with bigger bumpers, sill guards, roof bars and fatter alloy wheels, but the XMOD also offer higher ground clearance and an advanced traction control system with three modes, called Grip Extend, to cope with tougher terrain - useful as the XMOD does not have four-wheel-drive.

On the road, the XMOD is comfortable enough, despite stiffer suspension, though the steering is slow to provide any feedback. The special traction control unit is good for extra grip on slippery surfaces, optimising braking and engine torque, but is not meant to provide the off-road capability of 4WD. My test model was an XMOD Dynamique Tom Tom, with a 1.5 litre 110 hp diesel

Starting at £17,995, the XMOD looks eye-catchingly different and taps into a more youthful market sector than the conventional Scenic. Big windows give great visibility, the higher seating position allows you to feel fully in control, Accommodation is very good, with three individual rear seats, all slidable, foldable or removable, though the latter is not a quick and simple process. Even with the rear seats in use, there is a substantial 437 litres of loadspace.

engine, and Stop & Start, which is priced at £21,095. Top speed is 112 mph, the 0-60 mph time 12.3 seconds. Big plus-point is the outstanding fuel economy - 68.9 mpg combined. No doubt about it, the XMOD is a very attractive package for those looking for a compact MPV with a bit of visual attitude.

WESTBOURNE ROCKS

At Rock Restaurant they are all about championing modern British cuisine and especially supporting the local producers and suppliers. Below is just a taster from their new Autumn a la carte menu along with the recipe so you can recreate it at home.

RECIPE

Ginger & Raspberry Mojito

TIP

It’s been almost a year since the first Blushing Nun was served at Rock Westbourne. Whether you like a creamy dessert cocktail or a pre-dinner tipple, we’ve got something for everyone.

Experiment with different fruit and spice combinations to make your own seasonal cocktail

Many of the cocktails accompany our A la carte menu perfectly. For example nothing is more refreshing after a big meal than an ice cold Long Island Ice Tea. However, if you just fancy popping in for a drink you can always take advantage of our cocktail happy hour between 4 and 7pm and sample our list 2 for £10. By far the most popular cocktail this month is the Ginger and Raspberry Mojito, which is another take on the famous classic.

INGREDIENTS 10-15 fresh mint leaves 4-5 large raspberries 1 tsp of freshly grated ginger

METHOD

50ml of your favourite rum Crushed ice Soda to taste Brown sugar cubes

Rip your mint leaves and place in the base of a large tumbler, add raspberries, rum, ginger and sugar cubes. “Muddle” all of these things together. Fill glass up with crushed ice, soda then relax and enjoy!

RECIPE

REVIEWED

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

ROCK WESTBOURNE REVIEW After being invited by ‘Rock’ in Westbourne to dine with them we were very excited. I had seen the restaurant in passing, living locally to Westbourne, but hadn’t yet had the opportunity to discover what it had to offer. Opting not to take the lift we were guided up an enchanting winding staircase bringing us out into a captivating and vibrant restaurant. We were instantly greeted with friendly staff and the sounds of a fitting live swing band creating a warm and welcoming ambiance. The menu had plenty of selection particularly offering seasonal produce from local suppliers and a selection of fresh fish, changing daily depending on the catch. To start my partner had seared scallops with pork belly, celeriac & apple which was beautifully presented. The saltiness from the scallops and pork complimented each other with the sweetness of the apple to break up the flavours. I had the Dorset bresola & salt beef hash, poached egg & cockle dressing. The combination of the perfectly poached egg and meaty beef flavour was lovely. For our main my partner ordered the 8oz Fillet steak served with hand cut chips, béarnaise sauce and Hampshire watercress. The meat was sourced locally, exclusively from Dorset & Hampshire cattle. The steak was cooked to order, and quite honestly it was the best fillet steak I had ever tasted. Even the size and shape of the fillet made this steak exquisite, it’s thickness and cut made it a prime candidate for a perfect medium rare, and as if the steak wasn’t enough, who would have thought chips could taste so good? And with the béarnaise sauce to top it off, this simple yet quality dish was simply mouthwatering... until we tried the loin of New Forest venison with pumpkin fondant, Roasted quince & game jus. My goodness, it was delicious! Once again, beautifully presented and perfectly cooked succulent meat. The complimenting jus was flavoursome and moreish. We do enjoy the odd glass of wine but aren’t exactly connoisseurs, the Manager Kelly Ager, was at hand to give recommendations and chose the perfect wines to accompany our meals. Let’s just say I’m not normally a red wine drinker, but I have been turned! As if starters and mains weren’t enough, we gorged on dessert too. I have never seen a lemon meringue pie like it! The meringue was a giant pristine pillow lightly torched and floating on a sharp lemon curd and pastry. It was original but contemporary and tasted absolutely delicious. To sum things up, Rock did not fail to impress. With a perfect mix of a charming ambiance in picturesque quaint surroundings, delicious fresh food, and friendly, attentive staff, the Rock is certainly a restaurant I look forward to dining in again. The elegancy makes Rock Westbourne a perfect spot for a special occasion such as an anniversary or birthday, they also cater for Christmas parties and even weddings. In addition, Rock Westbourne also have afternoon tea from 2.30-5pm.

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

Christmas day is fast approaching along with all the preparation and stress. One of the biggest pressures is creating the perfect Christmas lunch, but it doesn’t have to be the same old turkey dinner. Traditionally a goose was the favoured bird as it was cheaper and a better quality of meat, as well as this the fat was used to make delicious crispy roast potatoes. However, in the 1960s this changed as goose was seen to be ‘common’. Over the past few years goose has become more popular again, so we have provided you with the perfect roast goose recipe to help you create a cracking Christmas day lunch.

TIP OF THE WEEK When you’re sitting down it’s really easy to get into the habit of slouching like Quasimodo. Get out of the habit by following this technique:

1 2

3

A good training technique is to sit on your hands with your legs uncrossed. Next slouch and notice what happens to the ‘sitting bone’ – they should feel as if they have moved forwards. Now overarch your lower back (the bony bits should move backwards) and stop when in a neutral position so that the bones are directly on the palms of your hands and bring the shoulders back. By practising this regime for two 10 minutes sessions each day good posture should become second nature.

WOMEN AND MARTIAL ARTS I think the major reason more women and girls do not study martial arts is the cultural environment. When girls hear the word “martial arts,” they think it is for men. Traditionally, it was for men. Men were the ones who went out to fight to protect their loved ones, their village, and their country. Women stayed behind and took care of the family. Women played a different role. Now, when I mention that I teach martial arts, I get statements from women like: “Wow, that¹s cool; I wish I could do that!” But why don’t girls enroll in a martial arts school? They may associate martial arts with time, discipline and commitment. I hear many reasons: they may think they are not strong enough to do that; they may think that they get hurt; they may not want to sweat; they may think their boyfriends or husbands are there to protect them; they may think information like “one of three women goes through their life being the victim of sexual abuse” does not apply to them. Many think abuse will not happen to them.

IT COULD HAPPEN Women also do not talk about the violence that happens to them because so often it is personal and they find it difficult to talk about or afraid of the reactions that may follow. This contributes to the lack of awareness and realness of the violence that can and does affect women. Care-taking and harmonizing are

definitely important in leading a successful life, and to balance these qualities out with the strength to physically protect oneself is really ideal. Without the ability to protect oneself, well, we limit our choices. I have had many conversations where I have suggested to some women to come and try Thai Boxing and they respond with “Oh, I don’t do that.” This is something that I don’t understand, why wouldn’t women want to learn how to protect themselves incase they are physically threatened? Wouldn’t they rather get fit whilst learning something that may help them in the future? Some become very confused. These women don’t realize that they would be at the mercy of their attacker because they made a choice in the past to not participate in something that could potentially save their lives. I am not sure why women respond to martial arts this way, but I think it goes back to our teaching girls that they aren’t supposed to fight. Well, no one is supposed to fight, but people do and it is our personal responsibility to be able to protect ourselves. Some may believe that it is up to someone else like their husband or boyfriend to protect them. That’s a pretty heavy burden to place on someone that we love. Again, I am not sure that a lot of women see it as their responsibility.

SCHOOLS

BUCKHOLME TOWERS SCHOOL AND NURSERY HELPING YOUR CHILD TO ACHIEVE SUCCESS With yet another round of outstanding 11 plus scores to celebrate, Headmaster Iain Robertson talks about how assessment of pupil progress fits into the daily routine and how it is used to raise achievement. “We believe that assessment and testing has its place in the school curriculum as long as the results are used effectively. Monitoring children’s progress should begin the moment they start school. “At Buckholme Towers School, the reason behind this is simple, if you don’t know where a child is in their learning at any given point, how can you plan their next steps? The main two types of assessment are formative assessment, which is ongoing and is used to advise the pupil of the next steps by saying what is good about their work and how they can improve it, the second is summative assessment which evaluates their learning, often through a test or exam. “We involve our students in the assessment of their own work. Even in the early stages we explain to them what the success criterion are for a task and what the learning outcomes should be. If they are clear on these things before they start, they can review their own work and see how successful they’ve been in achieving the goals. Sometimes older children will review each other’s work. “Each term, pupils are tested in the core subjects of literacy and maths. This helps us to track their progress and even predict outcomes. The majority of Buckholme students are performing above or well above national expectations, so it is important that rates of progress are, at the very least, maintained. The combination of the formative assessment and the summative assessment helps us to build up an achievement and progress profile for each child. “Because assessment is part of the culture at Buckholme, children quickly learn to take it in their stride. Most go on to do public examinations such as the 11 plus, for grammar school entry, and while I’m sure they get nervous, they have a sound understanding of what is expected, as well as a good grasp of exam techniques. “Of course, achievement is not only about literacy and maths scores, students at Buckholme are exposed to a broad and varied curriculum and this is vital if we are to get the best from them, overall. Pinpointing their strengths early on and celebrating their successes and achievements at every opportunity means that self-esteem and confidence are high. “This is much more easily achieved at Buckholme, where class numbers are small. We hear more and more from parents that in classes of more than 30, their children are ‘lost’, they are unnoticed and floundering. In this case children either become withdrawn, or misbehave. In short, they don’t know how to do their best, and indeed why they should bother. “Music, sport, drama and art are all high on the agenda at Buckholme and with the ‘can do’ culture that exists, most become involved in everything that is on offer. In this way, every child is happy because they have something to celebrate.”
