It is therefore no surprise to her competitors that she has launched her own company, Artisan Estate Agents (www. artisanestateagents.co.uk). In 2005 Debbie realised, while setting up an online property company abroad, that the necessity for expensive high street offices was no longer essential for selling houses.

2014 A NEW DIRECTION

NATIONAL SUCCESS FOR EVENLINES

Over the past 18 months there have been many exciting changes under the Aspray name. Back in May 2012 we became part of the Key Drummond Group and things have gone from strength to strength in our prominent Lower Parkstone office ever since.

Evenlines are the proud winners of the UK’s Best Aesthetic Practice with Three Rooms or Less.

Given this success, we are pleased to announce that our Branch Manager Katie Fox has now been appointed to Associate Director, giving her the opportunity to grow further in the company. Katie says: “I am overwhelmed to be a part of Aspray’s success and with my new role, I now have the foundations to grow the business further and very much look forward to a long standing career under the’ Key Drummond’ group. With Aspray being one of the longest established agents

in Ashley Cross I am keen to keep the traditional values and personal service. The market outlook for 2014 is hugely exciting with many signs of a very successful year ahead. The market in the last six months has been nothing but buoyant, with the highest prices since 2007 being achieved on both flats and houses, excellent mortgage rates, positive media coverage and of course not forgetting the introduction of the government ‘Help to Buy’ scheme. The demand is currently outstripping the supply so I am urging any home owners that want to sell to contact us!” With Katie and her team’s constant enthusiasm and passion for selling we know we have all it takes to offer our sellers and buyers a second to none service.

No less than 140 candidates made it to the final of The Aesthetics Awards 2013 and the winners were presented with their trophies on Saturday 7th December at the Grange Tower Hotel London. The event was sponsored by Syneron Candela and Uma Jeunesse and was attended by over 500 members of the medical aesthetics industry. The ceremony took place following entertainment from world renowned Comedian, Paul Sinha, and a prize draw which raised over £2,278 for the event’s charity, Changing Faces. Dr Linda Eve believes that this award is a tribute to the wonderful service and

customer care provided by all her staff at Evenlines and she is honoured to have received such a highly prestigious award. This award adds to Evenlines’ very successful year after also winning the Dutton Gregory Small Business Award at the Dorset Venus Women’s Business Awards 2013.

MARKET ANALYSIS

MARKET ANALYSIS A look back at the housing market in 2013.

SUMMARY FOR 2013

INTEREST RATES The summary for 2013 is it’s the final phase in a ‘Take That’ market.

FINAL PHASE IN A

‘TAKE THAT’

MARKET

Michael Riley is a Director of Capital and Coastal; a boutique estate agency selling and letting property between Poole and Lymington. He is a former Head of Residential Sales for Savills and Head of Operations for Romans in the Thames Valley. He regularly advises clients on the disposal and acquisition of property in prime Central London and on the South coast. Capital and Coastal monitor new instructions, withdrawals, price changes and the weekly sales of every agent between Poole and Lymington.

Just like the pop band the good times lasted for quite a while, then they went for a few years and then, like a phoenix from the ashes, the good times are back, just a bit older and possibly wiser. But, are the good times back for good? Who knows for sure, but we can unpick some of the key drivers over the course of 2013 and see how they might affect the local housing market for sales, lettings and development in 2014. The year started with strong demand; this was partly due to many buyers not having bought in 2012 due to distraction in the marketplace that included the Olympics, Queen’s jubilee and appalling weather. Deciding that they

couldn’t hold off any longer, the decision was made to get on with it and buy. As many sellers had decided to rent their unsaleable homes towards the end of 2012 demand quickly out-stripped supply. The market outside prime Central London was re-ignited. This caught the eye of the press, as did the introduction of the Help to Buy scheme (where the government underwrote part of a buyer’s deposit) for new build properties up-to a whopping £600k. You could almost hear house builders up and down the land grabbing their spades and dusting off their hard hats. This further gave the press fuel that the economy was in recovery. Herd mentality moves markets and as the year pressed on a stampede of tenants who were renting through the recession decided now was the time to buy. Then the Chancellor decided to introduce phase 2 of the Help to Buy scheme (for second hand homes) earlier than

anticipated and instantly the market up to £600,000 surged. The wave then encompassed the £500,000 to £750,000 market throughout the early Autumn. The £750,000 to £1m market improved too, although remained dependant on saleability and value for money. Above £1m was significantly better than it had been but is still crippled by the hikes in stamp duty during 2012.

TO LET

MONEY SUPPLY

So, the question is whether this is a fool’s rally or the start of a continuing and sustainable housing recovery.

START OF A

GOVERNANCE

CONTINUING &

SUSTAINABLE

HOUSING RECOVERY.

The latter will depend on a number of key drivers.

SALES UP TO

£800K VERY STRONG

These are likely to increase, but they are still very cheap when compared with historical levels. Rate movement will effect the market through sentiment more than affordability.

Mortgages are going to remain harder to get than pre-crash. Whilst the government say they want banks to lend more, behind the scenes they are insisting banks have greater assets to cover their loans and stricter controls on affordable lending.

KEY TRENDS 2014

SIGNIFICANT INCREASE IN NEW BUILDS

KEY DRIVERS 2014

RENTAL

Mark Carney the new Head of the Bank of England has a very watchful eye on the housing market and will step in quickly if he believes the market is getting out of control.

HOUSING SUPPLY There are a significant number of new homes being built and nationally there seems to be a more liberal attitude toward planning permission. This will improve supply, but we will still have a serious shortage in the South East that is unlikely to change for the medium-term.

For a sparkling festive table, add magic with white roses sprayed with hairspray and then dusted with silver glitter. This gives them a truly fairytale quality and lasts for several days. These are also available from Sia which can be found at Somers House. www.somershousedesigns.co.uk

Slaving over a hot stove is all very well, and the feast that follows is the delicious high point of Christmas Day. But spare a thought for the table. Decorating it may be a lastminute task but with the vital ingredients - some inexpensive accessories and a dash of creativity - it can easily enhance the sense of occasion. Somers House Designs have devised four decor solutions for a fabulous festive table. Simply follow one of their table plans and then just add food!

WHITE MAGIC “White and silver is an enduring seasonal colour theme - and with good reason. It’s refined, elegant and also chimes with our idealised vision of a perfect white Christmas,” says interiors expert Susie Mirco from Somers House which is home to tableware and accessories. “Place mirrored glass roundels underneath a collection of white or cream

candles - the glass reflects the candlelight. “Spray walnuts with silver spray and then use as place name holders; the natural crack in the shell will hold name cards perfectly. “Fruit painted with egg white and then dusted with caster sugar is a fabulous frosted centrepiece. Don’t forget greenery - think sprigs of holly, strands of ivy and pale seasonal flowers. Keep it simple, shimmering and understated. Beautiful!”

DON’T HAVE THE TIME? Frosted pine cones, fir and walnuts £9.90 per box available at Somers House.

CANDLES Make your home smell festive with the smell of pine. (Somers House Designs Home Fragrance collectionAlpine £22.50)

CLASSIC COUNTRY “The natural rustic look - a strong trend for homes - has a relaxed informality, which makes it a perfect choice for those who like a charming, unpretentious table setting,” says Kate “Forest creatures, from reindeer to rabbits, other woodland motifs and natural textures like wood and linen, look beautiful together, and this uncontrived style will appeal to adults and children alike. “Use a white cloth as a base and decorate with all things wooden, including tea light holders, platters and candle stick holders. Add vintagelook glassware and retrostyle cutlery. 12

“Be creative with napkins - tie with string, pearls, ribbon or twine, or simply secure with a peg tied with holly and lastly, adorn with a tiny, wooden tree decoration.” Top table touches: Reindeer are so in vogue and characteristic of the Season. (India Jane highland candlestick holders £39.90.

If you feel creative, make a pine cones and ivy centrepiece by buying a small wreath and adding collected cones and an attraction in the centre. Eichholz Stag Candelabra, would work well.


GLORIOUS GOLD “Gold’s made a welcome return to favour with the fashion for razzle-dazzle glamour and metallics in our rooms,” says Kate. “You can choose to interpret this look in an understated but sophisticated way with gold charger plates, cutlery, and a single eye-catching centrepiece - perhaps a gold candelabra or gilded reindeer. “Alternatively, you can be a little more theatrical and scatter miniature gold baubles down the centre of a table, pop tiny gift boxes wrapped in gold paper and ribbon beside each plate and, as a centrepiece, feature a tall, clear glass vase filled with gold baubles and topped by a floral arrangement of white roses and sprayed gold foliage.

To make an appointment call 01425 837322.

FROM THOUGHT TO FRUITION Custom Made Furniture talk us through one of their latest beautilful bespoke builds.

When one of our loyal customers came to see us with his idea of a coffee table in the distinctive shape of a vintage Italian Riva boat Neill couldn’t wait to get started. With his home already filled with bespoke furniture built by our team of skilled master craftsmen he wanted the table to be the icing on the cake. With the challenge in hand we began the process of turning a pile of timber into a stunning work of art. We began by using ply and flexi ply to build up the basic shape. Once achieved, the long hours of filing and sanding began until we were satisfied with the overall look.

The Oak veneer strips were then adhered to the deck and top half of the hull ready for the many layers of the high gloss lacquer to be applied. The bottom half of the hull was also sprayed with a high gloss cream acrylic lacquer. The final stages were to add the chrome strip around the top edge and to place the toughened glass onto the chrome legs.

When the delivery day finally arrived it was all hands on deck to make sure the final masterpiece was safely placed in its new home.

A unique, elegant and timeless beauty.

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.

INTERVIEW

The company car taking buyers on viewings then on tours of the Harbour.

House talks to...

Capital & Coastal ...about starting a business during the credit crunch and their new lettings and property management business.

HOW DID CAPITAL AND COASTAL COME INTO BEING? Michael Riley: I was working for Savills and felt that high end clients deserved a more personalised and tenacious approach. WHAT DID YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS SAY WHEN YOU SAID YOU WERE STARTING UP IN THE DEPTHS OF A RECESSION? Michael Riley: Most of them thought I was mad as they could see house transactions had plummeted and access to finance was severely restricted. However, I had worked through the early 90s market and my view was that it couldn’t be anything like as tough as that. Plus, my old employers, Romans, had build a hugely successful business during that recession and flourished as the market picked up. Fundamentally though, there was a greater risk in staying with a business that I didn’t believe in compared to trying out a better way to support clients. DO YOU THINK AGENTS WERE SLOW TO REACT TO THE CREDIT CRUNCH/RECESSION?

26

Michael Riley: In a post-credit crunch marketplace it takes more to be a good estate agent than taking the instruction and booking

viewings for people who telephone in. That’s just order processing. Instead, you need selling skills, targeted marketing, an ability to close deals, determination and a commitment to understanding each client’s needs. It amazed me that even though there had been a cataclysmic change in the property agent that most agents thought it was business as usual and didn’t change their methods. They continued to close up by 6pm, not open on Sundays and not reduce the price of their stock in response to levels of demand. As a consequence they lost business and many had to axe staff and advertising budgets. SO WHAT DID YOU DO DIFFERENTLY? Michael Riley: We put our customers at the centre of everything that we do. MAYBE JUST A FEW POINTERS? Michael Riley: We make ourselves available when our customers need us. This means we stay open until 9pm and at weekends. We also nurture having a client relationship based on understanding and trust. OUCH, 9PM? We figured if a property was on the market with us and also

another agent then they’d call us first if we were opened when the other agent was closed. Critically though, we also decided to specialise on the type of property, whereas most agents have a geographical niche. By concentrating on properties with sea views or within walking distance to the sea we can sell a lifestyle not just an area. Coastal buyers tend to be looking for the right property rather being in a specific location. ANYTHING ELSE? Michael Riley: We make sure we close deals. When there aren’t many buyers around you need to be able to keep both parties moving through to exchange of contracts. HOW DO YOU DO THIS? Michael Riley: We’re good at analysing the risks and opportunities in a seller’s position and negotiating accordingly. By concentrating on what fundamentally matters to our clients and dealing with problems quickly we keep negotiations going. Our belief is “you can lose a battle if it helps to win the war.”

WHAT MADE YOU DECIDE TO EXPAND INTO A LETTINGS AGENT AT A TIME WHEN MANY ORGANISATIONS ARE REDUCING IN SIZE? Chellenka Davis: There are huge opportunities in the lettings field to improve the service offering to landlords and tenants. I think some businesses see lettings as a poor relation to their sales business. We have already started to transfer skills from our sales side to the lettings area which has resulted in a number of lets that were languishing with other agents. WHAT PART OF THE MARKET ARE YOU TARGETING? Chellenka Davis: We have many buyers in the upper middle market who either have bought and now want to rent their properties out, or who have decided to rent before buying. So, this reflects in our lettings business. Our target is houses with monthly rentals of £1,000 - £4,000 for landlords whose priority is having tenants who will look after their property. WHAT SETS CAPITAL & COASTAL LETTINGS APART FROM ITS NUMEROUS COMPETITORS? Chellenka Davis: Our ethos is quality of tenant rather speed


of let. Some agents charge so little that it’s unprofitable to do more than a handful of viewings. That means they are going to do whatever they can to get the landlord to accept a tenant, even if they have reservations about suitability. Fine if you’re letting poor quality accommodation but our clients’ properties are special, often expensive and with interiors that need to be looked after. And, as with the sales business our marketing will be first rate and we register tenants from a wide catchment along the coast. SO QUALITY QUANTITY?

Michael Riley Director

MORE

THAN

Chellenka Davis: We intend to provide both. However, quality in lettings is a major issue and landlords often only realise this when things turn badly for them. We’ve checked out our competitors’ Assured Tenancy Agreements (AST) and found that many don’t reflect current legislation. The Capital and Coastal AST is totally up to date and this helps protect our clients. WHERE DO YOU ENVISAGE CAPITAL AND COASTAL BEING IN THE NEXT 5 YEARS AND BEYOND? Michael Riley: Our ambition is to continue to have a great team who provide a bespoke quality service to homeowners along the coast. With this approach we are confident we can outperform many of the traditional established businesses who have been underdelivering for years.

Chellenka Davis Head of Lettings

WHAT’S BEEN CAPITAL AND COASTAL’S MOST DIFFICULT CHALLENGE? Michael Riley: Six months after I established the business we had a shocking family tragedy when a family member took their own life. Being able to throw myself into work was a great blessing. Once you have been through that loss the work challenges we face seem pretty manageable. WHAT’S BEEN CAPITAL AND COASTAL’S FINEST/PROUDEST ACHIEVEMENT TO DATE?

Amy Meadows Head of PR

Michael Riley: We’ve had many sales success where our clients say that we have pulled the deal ‘out of the bag’; on occasions it has made larger agents look red in the face. It’s not magic, it’s because we work really hard to get great results.

So I’m proud of the dedication of my team. I am also really touched when clients give us great feedback. We have some wonderful testimonials on our website when clients have generously given up their time to be filmed to talk about their experience. I am also delighted that having started during the recession that we have now been trading four years when most people didn’t think we could do it. It gives you real confidence in your own ability and judgement. ARE YOU OPTIMISTIC ABOUT THE STATE OF HOUSING MARKET IN THE IMMEDIATE FUTURE? Michael Riley: In the immediate future yes I am. Most houses with a value up to £800,000 are in strong demand. Those valued at £800,000 - £1 million without water views will depend on the mortgage market and the supply of other housing stock. The market for £1 million plus without water views will remain tough. There are many downsizers now trying to sell but young families can’t make the move with limited access to finance. The demographic timebomb will mean this is going to be an enduring problem. THANK YOU, IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE TO SAY? Michael Riley: We’re hiring; if you’re a talented agent and feel like you’re not progressing, come and work for us!

If you’re selling or renting a property within walking distance of the beach - phone us first.

WINKWORTH MARKET ANALYSIS 2013

This year has seen ongoing improvement in the UK property market, with government initiatives such as the Funding for Lending Scheme and Help to Buy signalling the intent to support home ownership in the run up to the next election in 2015. These initiatives have already had a positive impact on mortgages, reducing the cost of borrowing and increasing availability for the first time buyer. As mortgage costs fall for both the homeowner and the buy-to-let investor, I envisage that prices will continue to move up during 2014. Cheaper mortgages, greater job security and improved employment prospects will underpin the family house market, a sector that has suffered over recent years. Government schemes which supported professional buying in the mid to lower end of the housing market are now feeding through to greater activity at the upper end.

I believe that in 2014, many that have held off buying in this area and kept their money in London, will look to take advantage of the value gap that has opened up and make a lifestyle choice to move out of London or invest in property in this area. There have also been many who have been unable to move locally whether it be to upsize, downsize or relocate due to reasons such as strict mortgage criteria, their homes being in negative equity or lack of job security holding them back. These issues have been relieved for many, which is likely to enable them to make their move during 2014. Consequently, we expect to see greater demand here with my prediction being an increase of some 15% in activity level and a price growth of around 5% during 2014. We have enjoyed our most successful year to date with completed sales figures at the end of the second quarter, exceeding total sales figures for the whole of 2012. We saw an increase in sale instructions over the first nine months of 32% over the same period last year and buyer registrations were up by 21%. We have high hopes for the New Year and have invested heavily in our IT systems, brand new LED window displays in our prominent high street office and have increased our advertising budgets to ensure our client’s properties receive the best possible exposure. This, coupled with the expansion of our highly experienced sales team with new recruits joining us in January will help in providing the first class service for which we are renown for and will ensure we remain the area’s leading agent. Should you be considering buying or selling throughout 2014, please contact Winkworth Westbourne to discuss your requirements.

It is a charming book of short stories and poems that have been inspired by some of the most stunning photography of dogs you will ever have seen. The book appeals to all ages and to anyone with a love of dogs, animals, photography and fun modern poems. There are 20 moving and entertaining stories written by Zoe Wilson in rhyme for each individual photograph, or series of photographs, in the book. From a Jack Russell and 50 Yorkshire Terrier to a Bas-

sett Hound, Pug and Boarder Collie to French Briard, each story is unique. Anyone who loves dogs or has shared their life with a four legged friend, big or small, will relate to the whole book.

IT WASN’T ME I can tell by your face that the evidence is there But to blame me for this just isn’t fair! If I’d eaten him whole I’d have a big lump And it did have wings and I can’t jump! The blame lies elsewhere, of that I am sure I suspect it was the owner of more than one claw So now you’re to be my judge and jury But find me guilty – you’ll feel my Pug fury! Lastly, I wish I’d put two and two together And never ever, ever picked up this feather!

BERRY BEAUTIFUL ROOMS Berries add a stunning splash of colour to our winter landscape and those nature-inspired shades can work wonders in our homes.

SOMERS HOUSE DESIGN

We’re all in need of a bit of cheer as cold winds bite, and rooms that glow with rich, deep reds and plum berry shades, with a few luxe touches, will make all the difference to our mood. This colour palette is a perennial favourite, and adding even one of these shades via small details is an easy way to update a decor scheme. “Statement home accessories in berry and plum tones create a sumptuous, regal feel in the home at Christmas,” says Abigail Bomford, head of design at Asda. “Use jewellery for the home - rugs, vases, lamps, cushions or throws - perfect for creating an opulent and warm ambience, particularly in the bedroom or living room.”

52

Try mixing high-gloss furniture with baroquestyle pieces such as mirrors and chandeliers.

These rich tones, which have found favour in our wardrobes, also work well as accent colours on a feature wall, she advises, especially paired with an understated, neutral colour palette.

Interior designer, Joanna Wood, agrees that these jewel shades have the power to enrich decor and conjure drama and atmosphere. “The key to achieving a rich interior scheme without overdoing it, is to get the correct balance of dark ruby and purple colours for the room,” she says.

India Jane Cushion - £95.95 www.somershousedesigns.co.uk

“Work towards a smarter, more sophisticated scheme with a focal wall in light berry hues, a safe alternative to black. If you want to tone down the effect, contrast with pale creams and perhaps russet, cranberry or scarlet reds, in alcoves or a feature wall, in dining rooms. “Natural materials - deep brown leather furniture and deep plum or red cushions and throws - are the key ingredients for a sensual, soothing sanctuary.” Enjoy merry berry decor delights at home that will last long beyond the festive season.

INDIA JANE CUSHION www.somershousedesigns.co.uk £45.00


INTERIORS

RED BERRY RECIPE Red is the colour of passion and friendliness and, of course, the signature colour of Christmas, so it’s perfectly suited to warming cold winter rooms. “An infusion of warm red lifts neutral shades and if you simply use bursts of the colour in room details you’ll ensure you’re not overpowered by the shade,” says Carole Brown, director of marketing at Dunelm. “Complement a red scheme with metallics for a touch of glamour and sophistication, and feature mirrors and glassware for essential sparkle.”

Best berry buys: Dunelm’s a super source for red homeware, especially if you’re on a budget. Get organised with its Rose and Ellis Allexton Collection Red Memo Board, £9.99, ideal for pinning up festive ‘to do’ lists. Cosy bedrooms are essential for hibernating and relaxing after exhausting shopping trips, and it wouldn’t break the bank to indulge in its bright red and white spot pattern, Rose and Ellis Oakley Collection Duvet Cover Set, from £34.99

THE COLOUR PURPLE Embrace your home’s dark side with evocative shades of deep aubergine through to light heather, which partner well with those on trend colours, faded pink and greys. “Shades of plum bring interest and depth to a room and will effortlessly ‘pop’ against an understated background,” says Ian Bissett, design director at Multiyork.

54

“A statement piece of furniture in a berry colour upholstery is a good investment - choosing a patterned fabric will enliven a plain scheme - as these shades feature strongly in next year’s home collections.

HOW DOES YOUR AGENCY DIFFER?

Louis gained his experience at one of London’s leading independent estate agencies, where he enjoyed success offering the very highest levels of service. As founder of Benjamins Estate Agents Bournemouth, Louis is dedicated to the growth and efficiency of the company, working closely with a strong network of industry contacts and a rich client portfolio in the Bournemouth & London areas. Louis is extremely enthusiastic and motivated by the service he provides. His dedication is clearly evident at all times, and more importantly than ever in a flooded marketplace, his knowledge of the industry and consummate service to his clients is unparalleled. WHAT MADE YOU START YOUR OWN AGENCY? After working in the London property market, I decided it was time to start my own agency and I wanted to do this at home in Bournemouth. I carried out research into what clients wanted from their estate agents and was amazed to see the large number who were unhappy with their current agents and the service they were getting. CAN YOU EXPLAIN WHAT WAS CAUSING THE UNHAPPINESS AMONG CLIENTS? The main reason was a lack of feedback beyond the very basic information of what potential buyers had thought following a viewing. This struck me as totally unsatisfactory in this age of information and I decided there and then that I could and would do it better. To sell property effectively, you need all the information you can get!

With my agency, Benjamins, I set out to combine the services you would expect from a high street agent (personal valuations, accompanied viewings, chasing and negotiating offers) with the advantages of today’s technology and being online. This means considerably lower fees, broader knowledge of the local market, more frequent and interesting feedback and greater statistical data, all of which will help sell your home in the best way possible, at the best price, and for a lower cost. WHAT DOES THE FUTURE HOLD?

I believe that vendors need another option when it comes to selling. We should not be afraid of change - change is good! Benjamins is offering that change.

Jonathan Marsh Property Consultant

Gaynor Somerville Valuation Consultant

Leanne Grey Branch Administrator

Born and raised in Christchurch, Jonathan graduated from the Arts University College Bournemouth in 2012 with a degree in Graphic Design. Upon graduation Jonathan moved to London and worked in media before moving into management with a national restaurant chain. However, his love of the area has lured him back and where his natural communication skills and desire to pursue a career in property have brought him to the attention of Hearnes Estate Agents.

Gaynor is from a military background and consequently spent her childhood abroad growing up in Brunei, Hong Kong and Germany. Ten years at boarding school took her onto Loughborough University where she graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree. After falling for the buzz of Bournemouth she took up employment with Hearnes aged 22 and quickly proceeded to become top sales negotiator. The next seven years saw progression up the ladder to assistant Branch Manager and finally Valuations Manager.

Born in Southampton and raised in the Midlands, Leanne with her family emigrated to the United States in 1997 where she lived for thirteen years. She studied Literature with Latin at the University of Utah and worked in her father’s Salt Lake City Art Gallery alongside interior designers helping to turn the once flailing business into a market leader throughout the intermountain west. Moving back to the UK in 2009 Leanne chose Bournemouth as a place to settle mainly because of the proximity to the sea and the local beauty Dorset has to offer.

WWW.DEBBIEJBOYES.CO.UK YOUR PROPERTY MAY BE REPOSSESSED IF YOU DO NOT KEEP UP REPAYMENTS ON YOUR MORTGAGE. For Residential and Buy to Let mortgages we charge a fee of £695 for advising on and arranging your mortgage. This fee is payable in 2 stages: £195 non- refundable application fee with the balance due on production of an offer and payable on completion of the mortgage or 60 days after the date of the offer (whichever is sooner). The lender may also pay us commission. Alternatively we can work on a pure fee basis of 1% of the loan amount for our services and we will refund to you any commission we receive from the lender, subject to a minimum fee of £1500. For example, if your mortgage were for £100,000 the fee would be £1500 and you would receive back any commission we receive from the lender which is usually in the region of 0.30%. This fee is payable in 2 stages: £195 on application with the balance payable on completion of the mortgage or 60 days after the date of the offer (whichever is sooner). For Commercial Mortgages we usually charge a fee of 1.5% of the loan amount. The fee is negotiable and is subject to the loan amount and the complexity of the proposition. If we receive a commission from the lender we will let you know the exact amount, and may refund an element of this to you. We do not charge a fee for insurance advice; we only receive commission from the provider.

5 Minutes with Craig Webb Why would Clients Choose Webb Homes to Sell their Property? I like to think dealing with the owner of the business from start to finish when purchasing a property is a great reason, but here are a few more ... Unlike other sales agents we don’t take on as many properties as possible, only providing a great service for a few weeks then going quiet. This drives sellers crazy! Providing no feedback is a sure way to lose instructions. I work hard to keep in touch with my Clients, letting them know immediately what is going on with their home. By building a rapport with my Clients it enables me and the client to get the valuation and offer amounts correct, this helps support swift sales within my contract times. I like to keep stock levels at a manageable number, ‘quality not quantity’. I work very hard and being a deal man that thrives on a challenge I will sell property quickly and effectively due to my motivation and enthusiasm. The added bonus of having our Estate agency in a prime position also helps support this!

“I have a great feeling for 2014! With the market hitting a fourth year of growth, now is a great time to sell.” That leads us to the new office, Where is it? Our new Webb Homes office is situated on Christchurch Road. We have a corner position about 500 yards from Iford Roundabout. The office is lovely, I have never felt so comfortable in a working environment from day to day. The local shops around us have welcomed our arrival. The local area of Iford, Boscombe East and Southbourne are our core market but we can sell property throughout Christchurch and Bournemouth from our prime office position.

Do you predict a prosperous 2014 for the property industry? I have a great feeling for 2014! With the market hitting a fourth year of growth, now is a great time to sell. I have no doubt that 2014 will see a very buoyant market with increased amounts of people wanting to sell their property. It makes a nice change that everybody is feeling confident and positive about this industry. I learnt my trade through the hard times and look forward to a brighter future within this industry. How long have you worked in this industry? I originally worked selling cars for Seward’s. In early 2005 I was approached & asked if I would consider working for a local Independent Estate agency. From this point I knew that I loved selling houses and working with clients to negotiate on their behalf. In 2006 as a joint Director I built a very successful Estate & Lettings Business with my business partner. I made the decision to resign from that company in 2012 and have since then worked freelance for the past year gaining more knowledge from friends and colleagues within the industry. The great opportunity of opening Webb Homes came along in 2013- With my Business partner Mr Matthew Kerr I look forward to making ‘Webb Homes’ a recognised Brand in estate agency around Bournemouth & Christchurch.

Are You Selling?

If you are thinking of selling do not hesitate and Call Craig Webb today on 01202 418608 or pop in Webb Homes offices for a conversation and fresh Coffee.

webbhomes would like to wish all its Clients a very Merry Christmas & A Happy New Year. Thinking of Selling? Why not see what your Homes potential is with a Market Valuation in the New Year

“Webb Homes have no doubt that 2014 will see increased House Prices & Higher stock levels.” Craig Webb, Director, Webbhomes

HOME IMPROVEMENTS

ARE YOU A PORTFOLIO LANDLORD? Only 6 months trading and we are already making a difference – call Helen and find out if we can make 2014 a better year for you and your property investments. To give you a little background, Helen Horsford has 16 years senior level experience in lettings and holiday lets locally and Aileen Lacey-Payne has 17 years residential leasehold property management experience and is a Director at Napier Management Services Ltd.

The decision to set up NFWE LTD came after seeing the quality of Lettings diminish due to a number of factors: • The number of individual private landlords has increased with easier lending criteria and low interest rates making property seem a better investment. • This combined with a high level of competition on the high street is squeezing the profit margin for the agents where there are reduced staff ratios to remain in profit. • Competition for Landlords amongst agents has also led

to higher, often unreasonable costs being placed on the tenants and can lead to longer voids. Aimed solely at the professional portfolio of Landlords and with the combined unique experience of the Directors, NFWE Ltd wants to offer a better, bespoke service to fewer landlords, with complete fee transparency for all parties.   We promise no hidden fees to landlords or tenants and better building management made possible by our local experience.

FOOD & DRINK

MAKE CHRISTMAS DINNER A CRACKER Tired of gobbling up turkey at Christmas? Or maybe you favour festive tradition over taste? Whatever you decide to cook, make sure it’s a delicious, hearty feast.

Considering we generally only eat turkey once a year, there’s an awful lot of fuss made about it. Butcher or supermarket, how big, where to store it? The beastly birds are so massive, they take up half the space in the average fridge or freezer. And then, finally, comes how to cook it. Delia Smith has a tried-and-tested recipe in her seminal Delia Smith’s Christmas, while Jamie Oliver, Heston Blumenthal, Gordon Ramsay and just about every other TV chef you can think of, have all had a go at coming up with their own twist on the traditional dish. Methods vary from brining it for 24 hours beforehand - that’s submerging it in a bucket of salty water flavoured with things like rosemary, garlic and clementine peel - to rubbing garlic and herb butter under the bird’s skin to make it crisp and golden, while the meat underneath - in theory comes out nice and moist. For all these techniques, though, turkey meat is always much of a muchness. Even a modest-sized bird comes in at about 10lb/4.5kg, with whoppers nearing 17lb on sale for larger families, meaning they need so long in the oven that, unless you concentrate on anything but that, it’ll end up dry as a bone. Gordon Ramsay’s take is to joint the bird first, roasting the breasts and legs separately, which dramatically reduc124

es cooking time. That can only be a good thing, but it’s also worth remembering the instructions of Georges Auguste Escoffier, the godfather of French cuisine, who wrote in his 1903 book Le Guide Culinaire: “Roast in a moderate oven”. And that’s it. There are a few golden rules though, like getting the turkey up to room temperature before cooking. It takes a while, so if it’s in the fridge and you’re roasting on Christmas Day morning, take it out the night before. You should try to keep the bird moist too, with a bit of butter on the breast and perhaps some bacon.

stops with the bearnaise sauce. Similarly, if nothing would please you more than a nice lamb chop, a pasta dish, or an array of roasted veg, go for it. Just don’t skimp on anything - make it a feast. If you still want the focal point of a big meal but are tempted to break away from tradition, other joints are worth considering. A turkey Wellington’s a perfect alternative for those who still want turkey but don’t want the hassle. You could make it a day or two in advance and just cook it on Christmas Day.

You could, however, just forgo turkey altogether and eat something else. After all, we only started eating turkey in the 16th century - Henry VIII was the first monarch to eat it as part of his festive feast - with goose and boar very popular before then. Goose has remained popular, although during Victorian times it was expensive, prompting hard-up fans of the gamey bird to start Goose clubs, like a street urchins’ version of a supermarket reward card.

If you still want poultry, maybe have a couple of chickens, or a cockerel for a stronger flavour and more meat. Guinea fowl, slightly smaller than chickens, are particularly good, especially if you’re cooking for just yourself and one other. A fore rib of beef is another alternative. This means shifting around some of the side dishes - you can’t serve it without Yorkshire puddings - but it’s worth it. And a cold beef sandwich with a load of mustard on Boxing Day is hard to beat.

There’s an argument for eating whatever you like on Christmas Day, too. If you’d really be happier with steak and chips, why not have that? Of course, if you’re going to do that, make sure it’s the best steak you can manage, and pull out all the

Whatever you choose, remember to think about the size of your kitchen and oven space, ease of cooking and, above all, what you’ll actually enjoy. Tradition is important at Christmas, but tasty grub is essential.

All the staff at Napier would like to wish their clients, contractors and business associates a very Happy Christmas and prosperous New Year. 2014 is our 20th year of trading and we will be celebrating throughout the year with a number of fundraising events to raise money for the homeless in Bournemouth and Poole - so watch this space! We have a policy not to send Christmas Cards, also trying to be green, instead we choose a charity every year and this year we have chosen BCHA. They have had their funding cut significantly and require sponsorship for their Winter Watch programme to prevent the homeless from having to sleep outside during the very cold weather. Please see our website for further details www.napiermanagement.co.uk The exciting news is that we now have an office in Bournemouth, one in Fordingbridge and will be opening our third office in Southampton in the New Year. Last week we celebrated a move for our Bournemouth office to bigger premises in Westbourne with a party for our clients, contractors and associates. Napier are restarting their “Ask The Expert� section in House magazine in 2014, so if you have a residential leasehold question and need some help please email us at napier@napiermanagement.co.uk

We thrive on helping the ordinary man in the street to get the best out of a complex planning system which is often over-cautiously interpreted or applied at local authority level

KEN PARKE PLANNING CONSULTANTS CELEBRATE THEIR 10TH ANNIVERSARY Ken Parke Planning Consultants are celebrating their tenth anniversary this year. They’ve seen some enormous changes over this time too! Ken Parke, Managing Director, says: “Having started out in the planning team of a local firm of solicitors, I decided to set up my own practice in 2003. Initially, we worked from home, but we quickly moved into offices in Christchurch and took on staff. Ten years on, we have recently moved into our own premises in Winton which will allow us to expand the business further. The past few years have been challenging in many ways. The planning system is constantly evolving as governments change their policies and the economy fluctuates. The recession also affected every house builder, business and private individual in some way, good or bad, and we had to adapt accordingly. Things are definitely recovering now though and we are ready to respond. We love the variety of work - One day you can be helping a householder extend their property in the New Forest National Park against some very restrictive planning policies and the next you might be working on a Public Inquiry for a major regeneration scheme with a whole host of different issues. We thrive on helping the ordinary man in the street to get the best out of a complex planning system which is often over-cautiously interpreted or applied at local authority level.’ Over the years, Ken Parke Planning has been responsible for obtaining planning permission for numerous development and regeneration schemes which now form part of the local townscapes across the region. When asked about his most notable projects Ken says: “That’s a difficult one because some jobs are satisfying when we’ve been able to overcome complex elements of planning law whereas others make you proud when they involve working with a team of architects and other experts to achieve a high quality planning and design outcome. For instance, we recently had to fight to have some overly restrictive conditions removed from a new block of student accommodation in Charminster. The legal aspects were very complex so winning the argument in that case was really satisfying. However, we were also proud of our involvement in securing permission for some individually designed homes and retirement complexes in the historic cores of Wilton and Sherborne. We are currently working on the redevelopment of the former Sopley Camp/Merryfield Park site near Bransgore, promoting numerous sites for large housing schemes within Dorset and further afield, a new office complex in the New Forest, some large regeneration schemes within Bournemouth, 2 supermarkets and several mixed use schemes in the Midlands. We moved offices to facilitate further expansion. My aim is to ensure that we are the experts of choice and provide the highest level of service to our clients. We enjoy what we do and relish the challenges that come with it. We are certainly approaching the next 10 years with the same level of enthusiasm as we did in 2003 but thankfully, due to hard work and dedicated staff, without the same fear of the unknown we experienced as a new business!”

Anniversary House, 23 Abbott Road, Bournemouth BH9 1EU | 01202 538800 | info@kppcltd.co.uk | www.kenparkeplanning.com 154

ASK THE LETTINGS EXPERT Sharon Canning Move On Rentals

Landlords Hit By Capital Gains Tax In Autumn Statement.

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

The Government will cut the amount of “relief” on CGT (capital gains tax) that is presently allowed for those who sell their second homes from three years to eighteen months, taking effect from April 2014.

Property you might pay Capital Gains Tax on: • A property that you’ve bought as an investment, for example a buy-to-let property • A second home, for example a holiday home in the UK or overseas • Business premises, such as a shop or a factory • Land, such as agricultural land The three year relief was designed to help people who needed to move out of their home because of separation or divorce or were unable to sell their existing property, for instance due to a stagnant property market, and so were forced to rent to tenants and becoming accidental landlords. This gave

them some breathing space. However, experts have warned the reduction of the relief could have a significant impact on people. The government believe the relief has been widely exploited. Many holiday home owners and landlords who want to sell a secondary property now register it as their main residence for a very short time – often as little as a month – so the property qualifies for three years’ of CGT relief. This tactic was central to MPs’ “flipping” of properties, where gains on multiple properties - such as a constituency home and London flat - could be removed from the tax net. When selling your second property you it is important to speak to an accountant who understands property tax and how to qualify for CGT discount call ‘principal private residence relief’. On a recent sale through ‘Landlord to Landlord Sales’ a landlord was able to reduce his CGT by over £35,000. To qualify for a CGT discount – called “principal private residence relief” – a property must have been selected as the main residence at a period of time, no matter how long ago. If you sell your main home you will not pay CGT as long as it has been your only home or main residence and you have used it as your home and nothing else. At Move On Rentals, we are always up to date with latest legislation to ensure all our landlords receive first class service.

ONE INTERIOR DESIGN

THE NEW COLOUR PALETTE Pointing, Elephants Breath & Charleston Gray From Farrow & Ball

HOW TO LOVE UP YOUR HOME! Transform your living spaces like these fabulous homes, and get inspired to transform the drab to the dazzling in no time at all! How Nykke Jones from One Interior Design helped her clients transform their homes from gloomy to gorgeous. Renovating the spaces; and maximising the space and light of their homes!

My role is to improve your living experience by creating the ideal environment for you to live your life!

PROJECT ONE

HOW TO MAKE A STATEMENT FIRST IMPRESSIONS COUNT‌

This hallway was tired, dated and stuck in the noughties! It was time for a change! Nykke and her client created a beautiful contemporary design scheme, by playing with the light and height of the space, bringing the space into the 21st century. 196

THE DESIGN PLAN: Incorporating soft neutral colours and textures with a touch of glamour, by adding metallic and light reflective elements, like that off glass beaded wallpapers, and finishes of silver and bronze. Classic polished travertine was used on the expansive floor area, and 5 metre long shimmering voiles hang from the ceiling, softly lit from behind enhancing the height of the space. Taupe and metallic roman blinds cosy up the windows. And, a massive spiral chandelier to bounce light around the room. Newly designed & commissioned under stairs storage, beautifully lit, with crystal handles, and painted a soft white. All these features come together to create a classic, elegant but adventurous design.

BEFORE


PROJECT TWO

HOW TO FRESHEN UP! BREATHE NEW LIFE INTO YOUR HOME… This house was caught up in a whirlwind of different colours and designs and themes, and had no unity. Nykke worked with her clients to renovate and bring up to date this beautiful big 1930’s house, and create a fluid unifying family home.

FAMILY ROOM

THE DESIGN PLAN:

Combining all the elements that make a big open plan living area work. A TV area, dining area and chill out zone in the conservatory. Coupled with fun, happy colours and fabrics that bring this big bright open space together.

To give each room its own identity, with a personality and function for the space. Equally bringing the house together more succinctly. Each room has been tastefully decorated to suit its end user.

SCAN TO WATCH THE FILM PRODUCED BY KINETIC FILM

BEDROOM Inspired by the beach and the coastal area, this nursery was designed to work now and in years to come as the baby grows. Adding more fun nautical elements as time goes by.

BEFORE

ENTRANCE HALL The entrance hall was not so inviting or practical. For a busy family we added a hall table, big baskets for shoes and umbrellas, lighting and a big mirror. Somewhere to throw your keys and hide the kid’s shoes. Also a comfy chair to put your shoes on as you’re heading out the door. Practical yet warm and inviting, as any entrance hall should be.

SITTING ROOM This room wasn’t being used at all by the family, and so it was duly resurrected as a quiet sitting room. Comfy leather sofas sit opposite each other, flanked by a huge coffee table for all those books and morning cups of coffee. A place to retreat, relax and enjoy the open fire.

TEN REASONS...

TO HIRE NYKKE AT ONE INTERIOR DESIGN AS YOUR INTERIOR DESIGNER 1. SAVE MONEY

Nykke x

“Hiring a designer can help you to avoid costly mistakes that will not only help you save money but can increase the value of your home.”

2. PROFESSIONAL ASSESSMENT “A designer can give you a professional assessment of your situation, which will lead to a solid plan of action. The order of things in a design plan is so important in determining what can be kept, or should be edited. This will not only affect the budget but help you to spend it more efficiently.” A designer offers an extra set of eyes, but these eyes are trained to see and notice things that you may not.

3. BUDGETING AND PLANNING A designer can keep you on budget and save you time and effort. A designer knows where to go for resources for everything related to your home. This will save you endless amounts of time researching products, brands and prices. A designer will have all this readily on hand, or will spend the time researching so that you don’t have to.

4. LIAISON… MASTER BEDROOM The master bedroom had a distinct art deco flavour built into the bones of the space. Draped with dark walnut panelling, it was crying out for some softness and colour. Embracing the beautiful art deco details, we graced the walls with a deco inspired geometric metallic paper in duck egg, and combined soft creams, duck egg blue and silvers within the space. A wonderful balance of masculine and feminine.

A designer will be able to build “a stronger bridge between you and your architect or contractor early on and can head off design misses in your overall plan. This is crucial in managing time and money. Also designers are trained to think about things we may overlook. “It’s so important that the lighting and furnishing needs are addressed before construction. If your living room sofa is floating in the middle of the room you want to make sure you have the proper placement for floor outlets.”

5. WIDE AVAILABILITY OF RESOURCES There are things available to designers that are not available to the general public in terms of connections, resources and general merchandise. By culminating these resources designers can help to make your space look more unique and pulled together.

6. CONTACTS Nykke states that: “In addition to vendor resources, designers have many home improvement industry contacts. They can save homeowners time and headaches trying to identify reliable, contractors, plumbers and electricians for their projects.”

7. WOW FACTOR

BEFORE

Designers can help to give you the “wow” factor you’ve been looking for. They are trained to think differently, spatially, and to see an overall picture that clients often cannot. Nykke adds that “Thinking outside of the box is what designers do all day long.”

8. HOME STAGING A designer can potentially add a great deal to the aesthetic of your home, which in turn can increase viewings and sales. This increased appeal can exponentially speed up the amount of time your home sits on the market before it is sold. The benefit here is two-fold, a faster turn-around time and more money in your pocket.

9. A TRAINED EYE “A designer is a professional with a trained eye that can automatically tell you if there is something wrong or right with a space. Having that immediate consultation is a major advantage when making aesthetic decisions. It is the result of years of experience.” says Nykke.

10. VISUAL STORY-TELLER Nykke concludes with the fact that: “Interior design is a skill and an art that will only enhance the space and the quality of your life within the space. Hiring a pro raises the level of that experience, and helps make your house a home. A designer can help you tell your visual story. I can’t think of a better reason than that!” Next time you plan on moving to a new home, remodelling an existing one, or have a commercial property that needs an overhaul, give Nykke a call to help you make the best decisions about the space you live or work in.

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.

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.

GOING AWAY FOR CHRISTMAS? WE all look forward to Christmas and getting together with our family and friends. There’s always so much to do this time of year; work deadlines, Christmas shopping, decorations and planning celebrations with our family and friends over the festive season. BUT have you considered what you’ll be leaving behind? With so much preparation it’s easy to forget simple things like the security of your office and home. Christmas is a time when there are lots of presents under the tree – all rich pickings for burglars! According to the British Crime Survey, domestic breakins have increased during the recession so are you prepared to let someone help themselves to all your hard work and carefully chosen presents for your loved ones while you’re away? “Winter evenings all dark and drizzly reduce visibility which can allow burglars to lurk in the shadows.“ says Allan Tofield, owner of Dorset based Richmond Home Improvement Co. “With curtains left open for all to admire our beautiful Christmas decorations, it’s all so easy for burglars outside to see right into your home with the added attraction of

The leaders of the business have a passion for design, building construction and achieving success through collaborative working, all delivered through a personalised service. Whether it is an extension, loft conversion, remodel or new build project, they believe that creating a functional and aesthetically pleasing environment, through good design, should be available to all. With 20 years of experience in architecture, project management and development consultancy the directors of the business lead a young and dynamic team of architects, technologists and sub-consultants. The directors of Union  Architecture  have worked in large

commercial practices at senior and managerial positions and bring that experience and skill set to a smaller practice. They are friendly and approachable and will work with you to create a team solution, and feel design should be a fully integrated process. The directors will maintain a continual presence throughout each project. Union Architecture are passionate about what they do and the difference their work can make to people’s lives. Union  Architecture  offers a comprehensive group of services and pride themselves in giving clients what they need; a professional and efficient service tailored to their specific project. During their time as Union Architecture, they have acquired a network of reliable and successful consultants and contractors, who work in a holistic manner to feed into the process of building and place making, whilst delivering projects on time and to budget.

ALTON ROAD, LOWER PARKSTONE EXTENSION & RE-MODEL BUDGET: £150,000 STATUS: ON SITE COMPLETE SPRING 2014 Following the purchase of the property, a brief was set to provide a dwelling with a unique appearance, and an internal layout to suit the requirements of a modern day family. The front elevation now includes two interlocking mono pitch roofs, with render and timber cladding replacing the mock tudor panelling. Union Architecture remain involved in the development of this project helping the client with bathroom, ensuite and kitchen layouts, and also the internal finishes.

The current layout was not compatible for a master suite, and had an unusable terrace area. The building was re-elevated to a new England style timber cladding with timber sliding sash windows. The terrace was levelled, increased in area, and finished with composite decking and glazed balustrading. Shoreline Building (www.shorelinebuilding.co.uk) 214

Why not give your property a facelift? Absolute stone and brick use a DOFF steam based stone cleaning system. It’s unlike any other steam system and can achieve temperatures 150°C. We are able to vary the temperature and pressure to remove the build up of any dirt, paint, moss, algae, fungi and any other biological matter from your brick/stone work giving your property a complete face life. The system uses steam so there is no need to use a chemical biocide during the removal process and the surfaces are dry within minutes.

12 Cheap ways to enjoy Christmas like a child Why are people so down on Christmas? I was in Marks & Spencer the other day buying a cheap suit for an event I’d been invited to, that I didn’t particularly want to go to. I already own three cheap suits. None of which fit me. Anyway, as I stood in the queue to pay for my suit, an elderly lady in front of me turned round to face me. The knuckles on her hands white with the firm grip she had on her two-wheeled zimmer frame and said to me, “Good job it only comes once a year isn’t it?” I smiled politely and agreed adding, “Yes... and it seems to last for at least six months these days”. Her wrinkled brow furrowed as if trying to understand what I meant before nodding and turning back around. To be fair to her, I had no idea what I meant. Standing in the queue I had time to think about what she said. The only aspect of Christmas I dislike is the materialistic over indulgence, which is not only a bad lesson for the recipients (kids) but can lead to financial stress through peer pressure for the givers.

So here’s 12 cheap ways to enjoy Christmas like a child: 1. Watch a classic Christmas film every day from the 12th December up until Christmas day. 2. When you see the Christmas Coca Cola advert on TV, jump up off your sofa and run around the entire house shouting, “Holidays are coming, holidays are coming!!!” 3. Make your own free advent calendar. I’d suggest you use stick numbers on your kitchen cupboards. 4. Wrap some of your rubbish up and leave it out for the bin men, then peak at them secretly through the window to see the smiles on their faces. 5. Visit your local market but pretend it’s a foreign Christmas market by asking the market stall holders questions in loud slow broken English. 6. Rather than shout obscenities out of your window when you get caught up in a road rage incident shout, “Ohh somebodies on the naughty list”. 7. Always answer your phone with, “Hello ho ho” 9. Substitute any meat you usually eat in the month of December with Turkey. 10. Go carol singing. 11. Send Santa a letter - no need for a stamp, just send it to Santa Claus, Freepost, Lapland. 12. Visit a Santa’s grotto, sit on his knee and pull his beard. We don’t stop playing because we get old, we grow old because we stop playing.

• Regularly clean out the soap dispenser drawer. Yes, they do come out and if you can’t manage it look it up in your instruction book. • Additionally clean out the softener part of this drawer as regular cleaning will help avoid the build-up of gunk and possible leaks. • On removal of the soap drawer you will see a series of little holes (jets) this is where the water comes through to disperse the detergent into the machine. These holes can get particularly mouldy if not cleaned regularly and the tip is to use an old tooth brush dipped in bleach. • The door seal can also attract mildew and other than the bleach/toothbrush tip, most supermarkets do stock a product specifically for mould and mildew removal. If the problem is really bad then we advise a whole new seal.

and

• Any black stuff is mould and bacteria just loves a wet environment, so start off the way you mean to go on, on a monthly basis give these drawers a regular once over. Carry this out BEFORE your maintenance wash to ensure that any bleach or cleaning product has been washed through the system before your next wash load. • It might not look very tidy particularly if your washing machine is in your kitchen but another way of avoiding bacteria is to keep the washing machine door open, particularly straight after a wash as this helps to dry it out and a quick wipe around the seal will also help with drying process. • Finally, we live in a hard water area and whilst this can be more expensive always put the recommended dose of detergent in with your wash as cutting corners never helps in the long run. Regularly washing with insufficient detergent does not deal with the dirt properly, particularly if you tend to wash on a low cycle and REMEMBER do not overload your machine.

HOW TO TREAT YOUR CHRISTMAS TREE

Picture the familiar Christmas scene: you arrive home from the garden centre, a tall, bushy tree proudly under your arm. You’re anxious to get it up and show it off in all it’s festive glory - but once it’s actually inside, once you’ve pruned and snipped it into it’s allocated space, the magic seems to have faded. There’s no need, though, for your tree to be over-hacked, lopsided and backed into a corner, if you just do a little groundwork before you buy. For instance, measure your floorto-ceiling space, taking into account the height of any stand below and the fairy or the star which will add extra height to the top. Then look at the width you have to play with. Will relatives be constantly brushing past the tree to reach a door or a sofa? If so, you’ll need to take that space into account and be prepared for some secateur work. Of the estimated eight million real Christmas trees bought every year in the UK, according to the British 232 Christmas Tree Growers Association,

the most popular is the non-drop Nordmann fir (Abies nordmanniana), originally from south Russia. However, these are quite bushy trees and if you only have a narrow space, it might pay to shop for a smaller type, like the Fraser fir (Abies fraseri), popular in the eastern United States. If space is really tight, you may opt for a small cypress which you can plant in a pot, then place on a side table or stand and decorate accordingly. Once Christmas is over, provided you have kept it well watered and away from radiators, you should be able to plant it out in the garden when weather and soil conditions permit. Andrea Blackie, garden designer and horticulturalist at plantify.co.uk, home to Britain’s biggest online plant selection, says: “If you don’t have the space for a full-size Christmas tree, you can get creative with other plants to make your home look festive this Christmas.” She recommends small evergreen shrubs that will fit into a small space and can be decorated to look fabulous

during the festive season. Common box (Buxus sempervirens), a shrub with small, glossy green aromatic leaves, can be clipped into cones or even bought in a cone shape then decorated with small baubles and other festive adornments. Another alternative is a standard, such as a bay or a berried holly, into which you can secure baubles and ribbons to give them a festive look without taking up too much space. They can be planted out once the festive season is over to give year-round enjoyment. Whatever you choose, remember that evergreens prefer the great outdoors, so don’t put them anywhere near a radiator and keep them well watered in a cool room. If you can, leave it till the last minute to bring them inside. If you are buying a traditional Christmas tree, saw off the bottom 5cm of trunk to open up its pores before you bring the tree inside and place it in a bucket of water until you are ready to house it. When you bring

it in, make sure you can keep it topped up with water, as a tree will drink half a litre a day. Most Christmas tree stands have a space for water, or you could simply wedge it into a bucket. There’s a few extra tips to remember when buying your tree too. Make sure the tree is fresh - look at the colour; when it dries out it loses some of its green hue. Stroke the needles too, and they should feel moist to the touch. Always put the tree on the ground to assess the size and shape before you buy. If it starts shedding some of its needles when it moves, it’s not the freshest. It’s also wise to shop around - or leave your tree buying to the last minute - if you want a bargain, because prices vary hugely on location. Once you’ve ticked all these boxes, and your tree is neatly in its place, get the decorations down from the loft, get the baubles on the branches, and enjoy...


WHAT TO DO THIS WEEK: IN YOUR GARDEN

Firm soil which has been raised by frost back around plants. Plant lilies in patio pots, keeping them in the greenhouse to develop. Dig over borders and vegetable plots if weather permits. In the greenhouse, sow seed of slow-maturing half-hardy summer bedding plants including pelargoniums, begonias and verbeGOOD ENOUGH TO EAT CELERIAC

TOP BUY SPEED WEEDER

This knobbly root is a winter staple which creates a wonderful mash with potato and garlic, or added to soups and stews to add flavour and texture. It should be sown in early March indoors at 16-21C (60-70F). Prick out the seedlings into small pots when big enough to handle and continue growing on a windowsill or in a heated propagator in the greenhouse and keep well watered but out of direct sun. Harden off the plants carefully and plant them into well prepared soil with plenty of compost when the last frost is over, in early June. They should be spaced 30cm (12in) apart in small gardens or can be given more space on allotments. Water them in well, liquid feed every two weeks with general purpose feed and keep them moist. Weed regularly until the plants cover the space and harvest them, digging the whole plant up, from September until Christmas. One of the most reliable varieties is ‘Monarch’, which produces excellent roots.

Are your paving stones becoming clogged with weeds? If so, invest in a Speed Weeder, a nifty little tool from horticultural trade charity Perennial, which supports people in need from the horticultural world. The lightweight weeder has a pointed end which will hook out all those weeds which have made a home between block paving, brickwork and other hard landscaping surfaces.

BEST OF THE BUNCH CHRISTMAS CACTUS (SCHLUMBERGERA TRUNCATA) In their native homes, these forest cacti are attached to trees in woodlands and jungles, but in the UK you generally buy them in a much more sterilised environment, in bud in November, waiting to burst into bloom in colours of white, pink, red or purple. They have flat, tooth-edged leaf-like stems with a trailing habit and tiers of flowers which bloom at the end of the stems during the winter months and throughout January. They also need little maintenance, apart from watering thoroughly when the compost begins to dry out and maintaining a minimum temperature of 55F. They also need a cool, dry resting period after flowering and will benefit from placing in a shady spot during the summer to help them produce next year’s flower buds. Don’t move a plant once the buds appear or they may all drop off.

MOVING OUT VS MOVING UP

The stress of buying, selling and packing can put people off the idea of moving house from the start and with research showing that moving house is deemed one of the most ³stressful life events³ that people will encounter it is no surprise people look for ways to avoid moving.

TRENDS

There are also the hidden costs associated with moving, that people do not consider at the start, such as stamp duty, surveying, legal costs and insurance to name a few. So with that in mind moving house does not come cheap! Along with all the stress and hassle is it worth even considering? The average cost to move from a three bed to a four bed house is £87,640. With those moving costs in mind and in this economic climate it is sensible to think about gaining that extra space in your home via your loft.

236

An average cost of a Loft Conversion is around £38,000 and according to research by Nationwide adding a loft conversions could have the potential to increase the value of your property by almost a quarter. So a loft conversion could be your ideal solution. It can potentially add value to your property without all of those additional moving costs and inconvenience and hassle of uprooting your family to a new house.

EXTRA SPACE If your family is growing and you feel that you need extra space for tiny feet, or that you need a room dedicated to quiet time and relaxation then a loft conversion could be the answer. Even if you just need the storage space, having your loft professionally converted with Cool Loft Conversions will maximise your loft potential.

EASIER & CHEAPER Moving to a larger house might be your ultimate dream, but for a lot of people the money, time and stress involved puts this out of reach. A loft conversion is an alternative option that is cheaper, quicker and much less fuss than relocating and you still feel like you own a new home once its complete.

INCREASE YOUR HOMES VALUE A loft conversions can add great value

to your home, so when you decide to move you could get a better return on your property with a converted loft then without. Even with the initial building cost and additional expenses considered, having the extra space of a loft conversion can bring excellent returns on investment. Here at Cool Loft Conversions, we have created a recent case study within our local area,t o see whether it is worth carrying out a loft conversion to achieve a forth bedroom compared to moving to gain more space. After contacting local companies such a solicitors, removal firms and local estate agents to find out what they charge for the whole moving process, we found the results staggering. We had to show our customers just how much it costs to purchase a forth bedroom by moving house compared to converting their existing loft thats already owned.

Many loft conversions do not require planning permission; however, we would always advocate good design irrespective of whether permission is required.

CRANBERRIES FOR CHRISTMAS

246

Cranberries are the staple fruit of Christmas, creating the sauce synonymous with turkey or adding warmth to winter punches, relishes and jellies. These beautiful deep red berries aren’t only popular with us though, they are also adored by wetland birds, so this year, Wildfowl and Wetland Trust wetland centres all across the country are holding their first ever Craneberry Fest - a celebration of the famous wetland fruit and an iconic wetland bird, the crane, after which cranberries are named. From November 30 until January 26, WWT Wetland Centres, supported by Ocean Spray, will be showing visitors how to make beautiful cranberry decorations for the tree and cranberry bird feeders. The plant was first named by early European settlers in America who felt the expanding flower, stem and petals resembled the neck, head, and bill of a crane. Most cranberries are still grown in boggy areas of North America and eastern Europe. They’re not widely grown in this country, although specialist fruit nurseries may offer a few types and the RHS also sells them. “Cranberries like boggy soil conditions and it’s quite difficult to create an environment in which they thrive

in the UK,’ says Leigh Hunt, principal horticultural adviser with the RHS. “But we can control the moisture and soil type by planting them in containers.” The plants do have some visual worth, as they are evergreen and low growing, with pink bell flowers. Cranberry ‘Pilgrim’, for instance, available from the RHS (www.rhs.org. uk) is a low-growing, evergreen cranberry with small, leathery leaves on lax stems that have an arching habit. Its attractive shape can be best admired when planted in a container so it can cascade over the sides of the pot. The tiny pinkish-red flowers appear in spring and are followed by tart dark red berries, a regular superfood packed with nutrients and vitamins. ‘Early Black’ has a spreading habit, evergreen leaves and large dark blue, fairly sweet fruit. If you have problems with drainage in your garden, the cranberry might actually be for you. They need extremely acidic soil, with a pH of less than 5, and semi-bog conditions. They prefer sun but will also withstand light shade. If you’re planting them in the ground, dig a hole 40cm (16in) deep

and line the base and sides with plastic sheeting. Fill with an ericaceous compost and mulch with 5cm (2in) of sawdust or wood shavings. Punch a few small holes in the sides of the plastic just above the bottom to allow water to seep out. If you can, use rain water to thoroughly wet the compost and trample it like grapes until the soil is soaking. “Keeping them well watered is really important and early to mid-summer is critical,” adds Hunt. “Most days you will need to check the pot. They have a shallow root run so a pot 12 inches deep would be sufficient and ideally you want a pot which is wide but shallow.” In spring, feed the plants with sulphate of ammonia, sulphate of potash and bonemeal and top-dress with ericaceous compost. If you are growing in pots you can control the conditions more effectively by spring planting in peaty ericaceous compost enhanced with around 10% lime-free grit. You’ll need to keep the plants really wet, so stand the pots in wide saucers that remain topped up with water, particularly rainwater, as tap-water contains too much lime. Feed the plants every week during

the growing season with a product specifically formulated for acid-loving plants and you should be harvesting the berries in September and October. They will keep in the fridge for a good few weeks or you can freeze them or pop them on a tray in the oven on its lowest setting for a few hours to dry them. Once the dried cranberries start to look like raisins, they can be added to bird feeders, while the fresh ones can be made into festive tree decorations, using floral wire and threading cranberries and craft beads through it to form circles. You can also make snowflake decorations using a foam ball in the centre. Thread 5in pieces of wire through it to form the spokes of a snowflake shape and thread cranberries on to the wire, gluing a craft bead at the end of each wire spoke, to secure the berries. To make a pine cone bird feeder, tie one 24in ribbon length to the end of each pine cone. Coat each pine cone with lard and sprinkle with soft, dried cranberries and bird seed. Hang by the ribbons on tree branches. For more details of the Craneberry Fest, go to www.wwt.org.uk


BEST OF THE BUNCH LAUREL (PRUNUS)

WHAT TO DO THIS WEEK: IN YOUR GARDEN

Many varieties of prunus, including flowering cherries and plums, are deciduous, but the evergreen types are excellent for screening and hedging, as their large glossy leaves and dense growth hide ugly views and deter intruders. Meanwhile, the smaller varieties suppress weeds, providing a display of white flowers in early summer, followed by berries. To keep it tidy, prune bushes in late winter and trim hedges in late summer, using secateurs not a hedge trimmer and dispose of the clippings, as laurel are poisonous. Among the best types for tall hedges is the common laurel, P. laurocerasus, which will reach 4.5m (15ft) or more if left unchecked. Small white flowers appear in April followed by red berries in September which later turn to black. Other good varieties include P. lusitanica ‘Variegata’, which is a better choice for alkaline soil and if you want a smaller hedge or if you want the shrub to be trimmed into a formal shape. Laurels thrive in sun or partial shade in any well-drained soil.

1

Complete the pruning of bush fruits as soon as possible, remembering to leave late-fruiting raspberries until February.

2

If you are doing any late turfing, protect the ground to be worked on and any stacked turf from frost by covering it with fleece.

3

Increase stocks of winter jasmine by taking cuttings now and putting them in a cold frame.

When staking trees, place the stake on the side which receives the prevailing wind to ensure the stem is blown away from the stake and bark is less likely to be rubbed.

Remove dead leaves from the tops of plants to prevent pests and disease from taking hold. Continue to ventilate the greenhouse on sunny days and reduce watering to a bare minimum.

10

After leaf fall, take hardwood cuttings of easy shrubs, roses and soft fruit bushes.

To stop squirrels raiding your bird table, mix chilli pepper powder with bird seed. Birds like the taste but squirrels don’t.

Take hardwood cuttings of dogwood, euonymus, buddleia, spiraea and weigela. Continue to harvest leeks and Brussels sprouts.

GOOD ENOUGH TO EAT LAMB’S LETTUCE This tasty, reliable rosette-shaped lettuce is easy to grow through the winter undercover, ideally on a windowsill. Sow seeds thinly from September to March in cold frames or a soil border in a cold greenhouse, or on windowsills indoors. If sowing indoors fill a shallow windowsill trough with compost, sprinkle seeds thinly over the surface and just cover them with a thin layer of horticultural vermiculite or compost. Water in gently, then again when the soil starts to dry out at the surface. When the seedlings are big enough to use, remove them for baby salads, while mature plants will be ready a couple of weeks later. Good varieties include ‘Vit’, a modern, fast-growing type, and ‘Verte de Cambrai’, a French variety.

ADD VEHICLE CONTRACTS - WHAT IS CAR LEASING? In its most simple definition, a car ‘lessee’ pays a monthly sum to take possession of a contract car for a period of between typically two to four years. At the end of the term the lessee gives the car back to the dealer/owner and takes a new lease or may opt to buy the car at its value at that point. Why does leasing often get a ‘bigger bounce for your buck’? The amount that a lessee pays over the period of a lease is typically equal to the amount that the contract car (ie; the leased car) will depreciate over that period. According to the AA, after 3 years the average car will have lost around 60% of its value. However, some cars (Audi, Mini or BMW) depreciate much less than others (Ford) and therefore, it may actually be close to the same price to lease an Audi as it is a Ford. A rough example that excludes VAT; a £19,000 Ford might have a forecast

depreciation of 50% over 3 years amounting to c. £9,500. This drives the price of the leasing contract and based on depreciation only, over 36 months the Ford might cost approximately £263 a month. However, for an Audi A4 that has an original value of £29,000 it might only depreciate by 30% across that period and this would mean (based on depreciation only) the monthly price would be £241 per month for a more up market vehicle.

Flexibility – although it will increase your payment you can extend the mileage if you like and you can extend the period (which will decrease your monthly payment) and you can opt to buy the car at the end.

Which Car Finance Option is best leasing or buying? This is a subjective question. First you must ask yourself:

Healthy Lifestyle Tips by Mark Daley

Mark Daley has been the Health and Fitness Manager at the West Hants Club since 1999. He started his career in the Health and Fitness industry in 1980. In the early 90's he established the Christchurch Doctor Referral Scheme with local GP's which proved a huge success, allowing patients access to exercise and healthy lifestyle changes as a prescription. Mark has a vast knowledge of sports nutrition which can be adapted to weight management, as well as strength and fitness exercise programming for the beginner to the advanced athlete. He heads a team of health and fitness specialists at The West Hants who all have their own niche including Pilates, Strength and Conditioning, Meditation techniques, Neuro-Linguistic Programming to name just a few. Here are tips 1-5, see next issue for more.

Choose exercise that you know you can maintain consistently. Something you enjoy, that doesn’t feel like a chore. Consistency is the key to physical improvement. Likewise chose a healthy eating regime that you can maintain. There’s no point going on a diet with a view that once you’ve reached your goal weight you plan to revert to eating what you did before. Incorporate resistance training like weight training, bodyweight work (push ups etc.) into your weekly regime. It will make you stronger, leaner, increase your metabolism and make your bones denser. Stretch. As we age flexibility is the first physical conditioning factor to deteriorate. It’s important to undertake a stretching programme. Add a good quality Omega 3 supplement to your diet. Omega 3 fatty acids will help increase immune function decrease blood pressure, Y ONL blood viscosity and inflammation. Call for more information or to book your tour!

HEALTH & FITNESS Charlie Lowe from the fastest growing bootcamp ‘Wassmuffin Fitter Than fit’ talks Fitness, well being, healthy eating and of course Thai Boxing.

TIP OF THE WEEK Cut down on fatty foods and eat more wholegrain bread, fruit and vegetables. The healthiest way to lose weight is neither crash diets or bursts of exercise. The body likes slow changes in terms of food and exercise. For example, someone who hasn’t exercised for years shouldn’t rush into running miles a day or pounding the treadmill. Not only will the struggle to do so leave you feeling disheartened and demotivated, you’re also far more likely to injure yourself and set your fitness levels back further. The same goes for people who suddenly start starving themselves. Diets that severely restrict calories or the types of food ‘allowed’ can lead you to be deficient in the nutrients and vitamins that your body needs.

WE TALK TO THE MASTER... THIS WEEK: WE TALK TO CHARLIE LOWE FROM FITTER THAN FIT YOU ARE AN ATHLETE, TRAINER, FIGHTER & A MOTIVATOR… WHAT COMES FIRST?

HOW DOES THAT FEEL?

Actually first and foremost I’m a mum so that always comes first! but out of the list you have given me it’s different things at different times depending on what I’m training for or what goals I want to reach. WHAT WAS IT THAT SET YOU OFF ON THIS PATH? Well I’ve always enjoyed sports and fitness and ran for Dorset when I was at school. When I came back from living in Spain I realised I’d put on 2 and 1/2 stone and I needed to do something about my lifestyle. I started going to the gym and doing weights and going to classes which I enjoyed. Then I went to boxing classes which I loved and this led to Thai boxing and I haven’t looked back since YOU HAVE THE GIFT TO CHANGE PEOPLES LIVES.

I’m honored to think I inspire anyone. I actually get quite emotional about the changes I see in people when I teach. It’s fantastic to have mums say that I’ve made them want to get back into shape again. YOU RECENTLY HAD A BABY, HOW LONG DID IT TAKE TO GET BACK IN SHAPE? I was actually really looking forward to just spending a few weeks with my newborn, as having older ones I knew how precious this time is. Thanks to some fight training at the end of June I managed to drop a few pounds and lost the last of the baby weight while I was training for the 1st Bournemouth marathon. TELL ME MORE ABOUT THE “FITTER THAN FIT” BRAND? Micheal and I have a passion for Thai Boxing and are both Instructors.

This features heavily in our bootcamps.

WHAT DIET ADVICE WOULD YOU OFFER YOUR CLIENTS?

People may find the thought of it a little daunting but there is a massive difference between training to fight to padwork and drills but the fitness results can be the same. There seemed to be a gap in the fitness market for the type of classes we run and I don’t think anyone one class has been exactly the same since we started out.

There are so many different diets and fads I’m not even a fan of the word diet. I’m not denying they can work, low carbs, Cambridge diet, 5.2, even the cabbage soup, yes they might give you a kick start but are they a long term answer I’m afraid not. The way to loose weight in the simplest terms is to eat healthily and exercise there is no miracle Diet. It’s a life style change.

Clear your mind of can’t. We all have to start somewhere we are definitely not all born natural athletes but working towards our goals and the achieving them is one the most satisfying feelings you can get. We wanted to create a fitness company that was understanding but achieved results and had fun whilst doing it.

WHERE DOES YOUR MOTIVATION COME FROM? Alot actually comes from my clients when they work hard they always make me want to better myself. Although I’ve never thought it I suppose I am competitive but only in a training environment and mostly with myself trying to beat my last time or record.

The opportunity to open a luxuriously appointed Beauty Salon with sea views is something most beauty therapists can only dream of, however after months of research planning and pure hard work, the dream has now been brought to reality for Louise Singleton the owner of Westover Beauty. Opened on the 19th of October this year, Thursday the 5th of December welcomed the official launch of Westover Beauty in Westover Road Bournemouth. The staff and guests at Westover Beauty were privileged to be joined by the Mayor and Mayoress of Bournemouth, Dr Rodney Cooper and his wife Mrs Elaine Cooper who attended the evening and cut the ribbon to mark the official launch. The launch event was well attended by members of many local businesses, along with existing and prospective clients, who enjoyed the opportunity to experience the luxurious surroundings within the salon and view the latest in technology, with the range of specialist equipment used by the team of experienced and highly trained beauty therapists.

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.”

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.

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

SEEING RED Whether genetic or environmental, you may not be able to completely banish redness, but you can take steps to help control it. Wear a sunscreen daily: look for one containing calming ingredients like Green Tea and Licorice to help soothe and control flare-ups. Choose moisturizers containing green natural mineral tint (not an artificial colour!) to help cancel out visible redness. Be mindful of what goes in your body. Smoking is somewhat like suffocating the skin from the inside: it inhibits the body’s ability to provide oxygen and nutrients to skin while restricting blood vessels. Excessive intake of alcoholic beverages and certain medications (such as nasal decongestants) can also contribute to dry skin, leaving skin more susceptible to sensitivity. Don’t over shower or overscrub: The loss of existing oil is commonly caused by excessive bathing or showering, or the use of harsh soaps that dissolve the protective layer of oil.

POWER BROW Never ever shave without a protective medium. Using dull razors can also weaken the skin’s barrier function, leaving it exposed to environmental assaults. Take note of what triggers the “red” reaction in your skin: certain foods such as artificial sweeteners or spices can bring on the flush look. Also be aware of your hormones, stress levels, physical exertion, and adrenal shifts.

TRY DERMALOGICA REDNESS RELIEF NEUTRALIZE Relieve and defend against inflammation and redness induced by skin sensitivity and rosacea with this three-inone SPF moisturizer RRP £34.00

WINTER DRYNESS Similar to the seasons, skin goes through its own fluctuations. Combine nature’s weather cycle with air conditioning and forced air heating devices, and you have skin that’s constantly

under assault. Cold winds and low temperatures can dry out skin, depriving it of balanced levels of oils, contributing to dryness, sensitivity, and premature aging. Prolonged exposure to the sun causes water to evaporate from skin, which is why skin that has recently been burned or tanned requires more moisturization than unexposed areas. Forced air heating also dries out skin: warm, dry air acts like a sponge, soaking up moisture from everything it touches. To help skin stay healthy with the seasons, speak with your professional skin therapist about modifying your skin care regimen accordingly. Chances are just a few product updates (for example, going from a moisturizer to a more emollient cream) can keep skin healthy year-round.

THE TOP EXTRINSIC CAUSES OF DRY SKIN

Extrinsic refers to external factors that impact skin health, such as our environment and lifestyle.   Below are some of the  major extrinsic causes of dry skin.

WEATHER / ENVIRONMENTAL ELEMENTS Cold winds and low temperatures can dry out skin, depriving it of balanced levels of oils, and contributing to premature aging. Prolonged exposure to the sun causes water to evaporate from skin.   Forced air heating also dries out skin:    warm, dry air acts like a sponge, soaking up moisture from everything it touches.

LIFESTYLE The trend of low-fat or fat-free diets can deprive our bodies of skin-friendly Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) critical to all parts of a healthy functioning body.  They help protect against water loss within cells and throughout skin, helping to prevent dryness, keeping skin supple and hydrated. An EFA deficiency can result in chronic itching, dryness, scaling, and thinning. Smoking can have a drying effect on skin: it drains skin and body of vitamins A and C and constricts blood vessels (which equates to less blood flow) – meaning smoking is somewhat like suffocating skin from the

At any time of day you can walk into the Moose, admire the contemporary and relaxed styling and, with friendly and attentive staff at the bar, order yourself a drink and grab some food. I’d previously heard many a positive comment when friends and colleagues talked about the burgers at The Moose and, as I discovered, these were all justified. I opted for a chicken breast burger crammed with Camembert and caramelised red onion and it was served stacked high, skewered on a knife hooped with onion rings. Accompanied by a plentiful supply of fries, this generous and well-flavoured burger is well worth a visit alone. Top this off with a delicious homemade brownie with ice cream for dessert and you can’t go wrong. Serving breakfast, lunch and evening meals, there’s a range of special offers spread across the week, meaning you’ll be hard-pressed deciding what day to visit. As the evening progresses the Moose fills up as a popular Ashley Cross cocktail and wine destination; your planned quiet night may turn into something more if you let it, especially if you take advantage of the 4pm till 8pm Happy Hour...

METHOD IN HIS MADNESS

Whether at his world-famous Fat Duck restaurant or on our TV screens, Heston Blumenthal is known for his crazy creations. He’s back on the box with a new series giving his trademark twist to classic British dishes

When Heston Blumenthal started making headlines, all the talk was of his snail porridge, bacon and egg ice cream and seafood platter served with an iPod playing the sound of crashing waves. That was eight years ago, and those who wrote those dishes off as gimmicks would have done well to note that around the same time, he’d just won his third Michelin star. There was clearly more to his fusion of the chemical and the culinary than met the eye. Following on from Heston’s Feasts, in which he focused on Victorian, Roman, Medieval and Tudor recipes, and

last year’s Heston’s Fantastical Food, where he made enormous versions of everyday items - including a pub made of pies - he’s back with another series, Heston’s Great British Food. He says he’s recovering from a mid-series freak-out. It’s not uncommon, he explains. “Last week I wasn’t happy with anything we’d done. It’s so much work, my brain just fries. “For the first time ever, I turned to the director and said I didn’t think I could do something. I thought we’d failed. He was OK with that, and from a TV point of view I suppose it would be good,” he

adds. “But I’ve not failed on a challenge before. Even when that giant ice cream looked like it was going to collapse in the last series, we brought it back. I don’t want to fail at anything.” In the first episode, Blumenthal hops into his red time-travelling phone box and discovers the roots of British favourite, fish and chips. He found it became popular during World War Two, when potatoes were widely grown at home thanks to the Dig For Victory campaign, and fish was one of the few foodstuffs not rationed. “We met a load of fisher-

men whose dads were fishermen during the war. They were telling us all these stories about being bombed while out at sea. Would you really have wanted to go out fishing during the war? Such bravery, and it played a huge role in it being a national staple.” Giving tradition the signature Blumenthal twist, he visits the oldest chippy in London and creates something new. It involves wrapping a saveloy in mushy pea puree, then wrapping that in blended-up fish, chips, tartare sauce and vinegar, battering and deep frying. “It was so wrong, in many ways, but it tasted so right,” he says. Of course, no one’s going to make better chips than Blumenthal’s own triple-cooked variety, now on gastropub menus up and down the land, but to add the soaked-in-vinegar taste so specific to the chip shop chips we all know and love, he makes a dipping sauce out of vinegar malt. The episode culminates in a feast down by a replica of the Golden Hind in Brixham, 268

complete with a fake fish that spews out lumps of turbot and has eyes made of gold leaf and squid ink. Further on in the series, Blumenthal tackles roast beef and discovers something interesting about our relationship with the French. “All these years I thought they called us ‘Le Roast Beef’ in a mocking way, making fun of our love of beef and Yorkshires. But it actually started as a compliment. So after those long months of development and such a stressful filming schedule, wouldn’t he just prefer to make a ‘normal’ TV series where he simply picks a few dishes, stands in a studio, looks down the camera and, heaven forbid, just cooks? “You know, I would really, really like to do that,” he says, deadpan. “Seriously, I’d love it. I did a few things like that for the shows we did for Channel 4 on eggs. Still with a bit of science, but mainly home cooking. Wouldn’t that be something?”


RECIPE

(SERVES 6)

Triple-cooked chips Ingredients

1kg Maris Piper potatoes, peeled and cut into chips (approx 2cm x 2cm x 6cm) Groundnut or grapeseed oil Sea salt

Method Place the cut chips into a bowl under running water for five minutes to wash off the starch. Place 2kg cold tap water in a large saucepan and add the potatoes. Place the pan over a medium heat and simmer until the chips are almost falling apart (approximately 20-30 minutes, depending on the potato). Carefully remove the cooked chips and place them on a cooling rack to dry out. Then place in the freezer for at least one hour to remove more moisture. Heat a deep-fat fryer or a deep pan no more than half filled with oil (to a depth of

around 10cm) to 130C. Fry the chips in small batches until a light crust forms (approximately five minutes), remove from the oil and drain on kitchen paper. Put the potatoes on a cooling rack and place in the freezer for at least one hour. At this stage, if you don’t want to cook and serve immediately, the chips can be kept in the fridge for up to three days. Heat the oil in the deep-fat fryer or deep pan to 180C and fry the chips until golden (approximately seven minutes).

Heston’s Great British Food begins on Channel 4 Tuesday, December 10

Method Fry the bacon lardons in a frying pan over a medium heat until they are soft but not coloured (this will take approximately five minutes). Remove from the pan with a slotted spoon and drain on kitchen paper. Set aside. Keep the bacon fat in the pan. Slice the bases off the sprouts and carefully separate the leaves, pulling them off of the sprout. Alternatively, shred them finely with a sharp knife. Melt the butter with the bacon fat in the frying pan over medium-low heat. When the butter is foaming, add the Brussels leaves and stir to coat them. Add two tablespoons of water and cover the pan with a lid. Allow to cook for five minutes, then stir in the lardons and season with salt and freshly ground pepper. 269

SCHOOLS

BUCKHOLME TOWERS SCHOOL AND NURSERY LOOKING BACK ON THE HIGHS AND LOWS OF 2013 2013 has been a testing year for all associated with Buckholme Towers. From the euphoric ‘high’ of pupils achieving outstanding results in the 11 plus grammar school exam to the momentous low when a fire devastated the school building. But the positive spirit of Buckholme hasn’t been dampened and 2014 is shaping up to be the best year yet. Iain Robertson, headmaster at Buckholme Towers School explains why. “This year has certainly been a game changer for all involved with the school. When the fire hit in March, we had to take a step back and quickly decide how we were going to get back to normal with minimal effect on the children’s education. When something as big as this happens, you soon learn that it doesn’t just affect the pupils and staff - a whole community is turned upside down. “Temporary classrooms were set up in the hall at Parkstone United Reformed Church and a safe pathway from the back of the church to Buckholme was constructed so the children could avoid the busy road. A local building firm pulled out all the stops to have the school refurbished within an incredibly short timescale, while also endeavoring to make it a better and more effective learning environment. “Looking back, the pupils only missed two days of education which we are hugely proud of considering the circumstances. Classes soon got back to normal and we started the term in September with enhanced facilities, additional safety features and a crowd of eager children who were happy to be back in their favourite classrooms. “Every few years Ofsted, the official body for inspecting schools, makes unannounced visits to those providing education to ensure teaching standards are met. It just so happened that they visited Buckholme soon after the fire when we were operating out of the local church. This was a worrying time for us due to the recent traumatic events and there were some statutory requirements that we knew we couldn’t meet due to the circumstances. However, the staff pulled together with the church community and we achieved a judgement of ‘good’ with the inspector commenting, “Pupils leave the school with attainment that is consistently above or well above national average in English and Mathematics.” As you can imagine we were all delighted with the results. “Two months following the fire we sadly lost our well-loved caretaker Mr Alan John. Mr John worked at Buckholme for 15 years and his passing was the end of an era to all who knew him. To ensure his memory lives on, we dedicated the school hall to him and his wife Heather, who also worked at Buckholme for many years. The whole school community shares many treasured memories of their time with us. “Pupil admissions to the school are at an all-time high, while staff turnover is minimal, as usual. In recent years we took on experts in IT, science and art, which is a huge benefit to the children and works well alongside our new state of the art facilities. Our New Year resolution is simple, to continue providing the highest standards of education and ensure that the individual needs of pupils are met.”
