COUNTRY HOUSE PRICES TO CONTINUE TO RISE IN 2014 Latest data from Knight Frank reveals that prime country house prices are set to continue increasing through 2014 after rising again during the final quarter of 2013. The average price of a prime country house in England increased by 1.4% in the final quarter of 2013 – the biggest quarterly increase in prices in more than three years. On an annual basis, prices have risen by 3.1%. However Knight Frank said that price performance was becoming increasingly dependent on the value of a property: homes worth under £2m increased by an average of 1.7% over the last three months, while price growth for properties in the higher price brackets was more muted. Higher stamp duty charges for £2million+ properties, introduced at last year’s Budget, were a key driver behind stronger growth from the lower price brackets. The average value of a home worth between £2m and £3m rose by 1%, while the price of properties worth between £3m and £4m climbed by 0.4% between October and December. However, the average price of a home worth between £4m and £5m fell by 0.3% over the same time period. Despite this, prices of “super-prime” £5million+ homes proved more resilient due to low stock levels increasing by 2% in Q4. According to Knight Frank, demand in the market remained strong with more new applicants registering and property viewings increasing over the same period. Knight Frank said that better economic conditions and the improved buyer confidence meant that the prime country house market should grow by an average 3.5% this year.

2013 has seen the market pick up month on month after a slow and late start Rupert Sweeting, Head of Knight Frank Country.

NAEA PREMIERES TELEVISION ADVERTS The National Association of Estate Agents is hitting the small screen with a television advert aimed at reminding consumers of the importance of choosing a licensed agent. Adverts for the NAEA are being broadcast on channels including ITV4, Home, Sky Atlantic, Sky Livingit and Discovery Home & Health. Separate adverts promoting members of the Association of Residential Letting Agents are airing on the same channels from next week.

LET THE TAXMAN HELP PAY FOR YOUR LIFE COVER Protecting your home and loved ones is always important. However, if ever you own a small business there’s a bright way to buy life insurance for yourself and your key employees. With a relevant life policy the business makes the payments, not the person who’s covered. That means you won’t pay any national insurance contributions or income tax on the premiums but you still get the benefits of corporation tax relief. And that all adds up to big tax savings. So if you’re thinking of life cover for yourself or your employees, talk to Debbie J Boyes about relevant life policies and see how much the taxman could save you.

The organisations said the campaigns have been designed to reflect the importance of sound choices when appointing an agent to work with on any aspect of property ownership or rental. Mark Hayward, Managing Director of the NAEA, said: “We are delighted with the finished product and we’re really looking forward to the first airing of these adverts. “It is essential that consumers, whether buying or letting, look for NAEA and ARLA logos for peace of mind throughout the process. These advertisements were commissioned to help the public avoid unscrupulous agents who may, sadly, not have their clients’ best interests at heart.” 8

THINGS WE LOVE FOR 2014 New Year New Look from the Somers House team.

Scented candles are available in a wide range of candle styles, from taper candles, to jar candles, to votive candles, and pillar candles; you can find a pleasing scent for any occasion and candle purpose.

True Grace Home Fragrance

Smell is among our most powerful and fulfilling senses. Smell can serve the purpose of bring up feelings of pleasure, calmness and romance. Somers House Designs have just launched their range of candles and are available in mirrored glass boxes. Once the candle has been used up you have a wonderful container for flowers or decorative items.

FAUX FLOWERS

12

A one off cost, which will deliver a beautiful reception each time you enter a room. Beautiful floral arrangements are works of art, and the real beauty of silk flowers is that they last forever, season-toseason in perfect bloom with no watering, pruning or wilting.

3 REASONS... TO LOVE LANTERNS

Lanterns make even the simplest garden look sophisticated – a fussfree way to dress it up before your guests arrive. Most can hold a small tealight or large candle, depending on your preference, and would make a beautiful table centrepiece. A warm candle glow would set off brightly coloured, silky floor cushions and throws in a conservatory, or bring a bit of magic to the garden when hanging from a low branch.

LITTLE DETAILS Shell filled lamp bases. Container lamp bases are great because can be filled dependant on the season,mood and ambience of the room. From pine cones to pebbles or even jelly beans ! The possibilities are endless‌


RADIANT ORCHID

Manuel Canovas luxury candles

Mixed with shades of blue (our perennial faviourite!) it creates a classic yet current look. All furniture, lighting and accessories available through Somers House Designs.

HOME IMPROVEMENTS

HOW TO IMPROVE YOUR BATHROOM If you’re thinking of improving your bathroom in 2014 but finding it hard to be inspired by the limited space, Ripples trained designers can advise on how to make the smallest room in the house the place you want to spend the most time. Ripples, the premier bathroom retailer based in Westbourne, aim to set themselves apart from other bathroom showrooms by focusing on being a design-led business, offering ideas and design concepts to create your unique dream bathroom. Owned and run by husband and wife team Victoria & Mike Lombard. The stunning showroom is conveniently situated on Seamoor Road, showcasing the ultimate in contemporary and traditional bathroom design.

TOP TIPS

Victoria explains, “our experienced designers will advise you every step of the way, we are happy to help you choose everything you need to create your perfect bathing haven. We work very closely with installers and we can suggest the names of reputable professionals who have installed other Ripples bathrooms and understand the high standards our customers expect”!

1. Think of the function of the room, what is the room used for and who will be using it? You can then answer many questions about material, products, layout and storage.

Don’t be afraid to bring furniture off the floor, layering the room and giving the illusion of added space.

2. Every product you incorporate must be allocated its own working space, also don’t be afraid to bring furniture off the floor, layering the room and giving the illusion of added space. Wall mounted products lead the eye below, making the floor areas appear even bigger. 3. In small spaces it can been beneficial to conceal as much as possible by using stud work to reduce unnecessary clutter. Wall hung units give the impression of greater space by keeping everything off the floor and maximising floor space. Recessed mirrored cabinets also have the dual function of hidden storage and light reflecting qualities to make the room appear larger. 4. Lighting is a crucial part of any bathroom scheme in order to give the desired dramatic ambience. Down lights will give a general wash of

light, however to create an interesting scheme, consider placing coloured LED lights in to alcoves or floor positioned LED lights behind focal areas such as a freestanding bath to give a romantic touch. Under cabinet lighting also helps to give the appearance of space. 5. When faced with limited space, problem or awkward areas, it is well worth considering made to measure and other bespoke products, so whether it’s a sloping ceiling causing you issues or you would like to transform an otherwise wasted space there should be nothing stopping you. 6. Consider using space saving sanitary ware such as corner wash basins, counter top models or sanitary ware with short projection. Look at possibly using a smaller bath with a shower above instead of being a separate item. Also, in some spaces curves are a better option than square as they are softer and less obtrusive.

Even one coat of paint can refresh a space. If you can’t face decorating the whole room, turn one wall into a feature with a shade which complements the rest of your scheme.

ADVERTISING FEATURE

Completed development at Sherborne with Etchingham Morris

CELEBRATING 10 SUCCESSFUL YEARS 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:

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.’

“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.

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!”

ASK THE LETTINGS EXPERT Sharon Canning Move On Rentals

Starting 2014 with rent arrears? As we have left 2013 and entered 2014, how are your tenants doing with their rent? In January 2013 a total of £326million in rent was either late or unpaid according to survey by LSL Property Services. This had increased by nearly £100million because of Christmas 2012. There was an article in the Independent in December 2013 of a council in London sending out Christmas cards to their 17,000 tenants reminding them to pay their rent before splashing out on festivities, the card had a picture of a pound coin fizzing in a glass with the message ’Don’t over indulge this Christmas – pay your rent’. Hammersmith and Fulham Council reportedly have 49% of their tenants in arrears; however the tenants themselves found the card insulting. 2013 has not been easy for most people financially and Christmas is always the hardest time of the year and probably the easiest time to succumb to the temptation of buying gifts for loved ones and worry about the bills in January. If you are a tenant and you find yourself entering 2014 in an arrears situation, then you should speak to your landlord/ agent as soon as possible, ignoring requests to communicate from then will just make the situation worst and could end up with you being evicted (contrary to belief, landlords/agents do not have a crystal ball and know your situation in full). Going forward rent arrears can be a large obstacle in either moving to another property or finding yourself turned down by the next landlord because you had or are in rent arrears. If you are a landlord, then talking to your tenant and trying to come to a payment plan to catch up could prove less costly than taking them to court. However, I give a word of warning to tenants who enter a payment plan, ensure it is one you can keep, a good landlord is worth keeping but at the end of the day it is a business and they more often than not have a mortgage to pay on the property.

If you are a landlord and would like advice on your tenant arrears, or need help with issuing the appropriate notices to end the tenancy then please contact Sharon@ moveonrentals.com or telephone the office on 01202 711169.

Leave the suitcases to gather dust in the loft and bring farflung destinations into your home instead. Gabrielle Fagan checks into the look for travelinspired decor. Holidays abroad are a treat, if you’re lucky enough to have one, but most of us come home feeling they’re over too quickly. But there’s a way to prolong that feelgood factor - by conjuring up those getaway settings in your home, taking inspiration from the locations you love or those you dream of visiting.

“Evoking the style of a destination that you love is a brilliant way to give give rooms an update, will help the holiday spirit linger longer and could lift your spirits if our unpredictable climate is getting you down,” says designer Linda Barker. Global influences have made their mark on the home collections of high street stores this year, so you won’t have to go far to find the vital vacation ingredients. “It’s all about evoking the mood of the place. Simply pick perhaps one colour shade characteristic

of your holiday spot and together with a few well-chosen accessories, those visual hints can be enough,” says Barker. Choose your holiday style - then all you need to do is send a postcard saying: ‘Wish you were here!’

Ferndown has changed since 1951. Now it’s our turn.

I

n 1951, Ferndown - part of the parish of Hampreston until 1972 - was a small town of some 4,200 people. These days it has nearly 18,000 and much of the woodland and heath that surrounded the old town is now home to a popular, thriving residential community. At Wellstead & Wellstead, we’re proud of our contribution to the town’s development - helping families, people retiring or second-homers buy their perfect property. And just as Ferndown continues to flourish, so do we: as part of our merger with YOUhome, Bournemouth’s premier estate agent, we are now offering a residential lettings and property management service to Ferndown and the surrounding area.

ONE INTERIOR DESIGN Nykke Jones, One Interior Design talks us through some ‘Home Staging’ projects to help you prepare your home for sale.

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

HOME STAGING

PROJECT ONE

You wouldn’t sell your car without giving it a thorough clean and spruce up, so why even contemplate not doing the same for your property! So ‘Home Stage’ it!

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.

Selling your property?

Home Staging a property for sale means making the most of its best features: • Maximise the sense of space & light • De-personalising the space • De-cluttering the space • Neutralizing the space

Therefore, presenting it in a way that appeals to the maximum number of potential buyers. I offer a flexible service to suit your needs, whether you simply require an initial verbal consultation and advice, right through to project managing an entire makeover for you, I have the service to help make the most of your property. So you can sell your house quickly! 104

HOW TO MAKE A STATEMENT FIRST IMPRESSIONS COUNT…

THE DESIGN PLAN:

WHAT IS HOME STAGING?

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 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.

The term "Home Staging" is now widely used to describe the process of getting your home ready for sale by ensuring the presentation is the best that it can be. However, Professional Home Staging is much more than 'painting it all white and clearing out the clutter!

WHO DO WE HELP? 1. Home owners wanting to sell their property. 2. Home owners currently already on the market and struggling to sell. 3. Developers & Landlords needing a Show Home staged to help sell their new development with a professional interior design service, that includes the design and complete fit out of the space. Call Nykke today on 077 9009 2291 to book your initial home staging consultation for

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.

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.

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. 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 118 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.

ESSENTIAL GUIDE TO...

A NEW YEAR, A NEW GARDEN If you’ve had time over the festive season to leaf through those gardening book gifts, or to visit a public garden and walk off those Christmas excesses, you’ll hopefully be awash with innovative ideas on designs to replicate in your own garden in the new year. If you are redesigning an established garden, you can retain mature features, moving large shrubs and border plants to create an immediate effect. The proportion of plants and features to open space in the garden is all-important and the general rule is one-third planting to two-thirds space. You need that space to properly be able to see your garden and all its features. Yet the garden can consist of many elements. Even a small garden could incorporate a mixture of different aspects, from lawn and paving to gravel, water and pebbles. If you have a tiny garden, think about incorporating vertical planting, using climbers to bring colour and texture upwards, or make your gar120 den seem larger with the use of mirrors.

Consider using a few bold focal points to draw the eye across the garden at an angle, which can help to overcome the shortcomings of a really tiny space. Drawing the eye to focal points elsewhere can also detract attention from an unattractive object or area, rather than attempting to screen it. If your garden is big enough to incorporate beds and borders, make sure they aren’t too narrow. Too many plants end up cramped between fences and lawn in boring, straight borders which do nothing for the plants or the view. Think about introducing interesting curves to your borders to give them a more fluid feel. The minimum width for a border should be around 1m (40in) and even with that, you’ll be limited to dwarf shrubs and fairly small perennials. If your design includes three layers of planting in a bed, you’ll need an area of at least 3m squared. You may think that planting the tallest

plants at the back of the border and graduating until you have the smallest plants at the front is the best way to go, but there are certain plants you can use to break with tradition.

Do you want a low-maintenance plot, or one you can endlessly potter in? How much time will you realistically be able to spend each week maintaining that space?

Height in the foreground, as long as it doesn’t block the line of vision, increases perspective and can make the garden seem longer. For this you can use wispy grasses such as Stipa gigantea, or perennials that produce light flower spikes such as Digitalis lutea, or see-through specimens such as Verbena bonariensis, which don’t block the view of what’s behind them. Long, narrow gardens can often be improved by dividing the area into several smaller sections, using hedges, low walls, raised beds or shrub borders that extend into the garden and prevent the eye being taken in a straight line to the end. Each area might incorporate a different theme, such as scent, water, herbs or flowers.

Draw up a plan either on a computer or with pencil and (preferably graph or squared) paper, to make an outline of the existing garden and its dimensions. Include existing features you want to keep and potential obstacles such as manhole covers which you’ll need to work around. Mark the direction of the sun, where it falls at particular times of the day and any permanent shadow. Then put tracing paper over the original plan and sketch ideas of your own, experimenting with layout and plantings, bearing in mind what the vista will look like from the house, both downstairs and upstairs.

Of course, before any project can start, consider the type of gardener you are.

And don’t make it too complicated. Remember clean lines and simple shapes will always work best - in design, less is often more.


BEST OF THE BUNCH GYPSOPHILA Gypsophila is one of those really useful fluffy white plants used for filling in gaps in flower arrangements with ease and, while it is widely available all year, I find it comes into its own at Christmas used to fill in gaps in the Christmas tree. Cut sprigs off and place them strategically between the layers of branches and it brings a natural snowy hue to the tree. In the wild, this is a summer bloom, with its starry sprays of small white or pink flowers making an airy filler in the border, making good companions for coreopsis, cranesbill geraniums and geums. Small types are ideal for rock gardens or tumbling over retaining walls, while the annual and larger perennial gypsophilas such as G. paniculata suit borders. Popular cultivars include ‘Bristol Fairy’ and ‘Perfekta’, with double white flowers. Gypsophila needs to be grown in deep, light, preferably alkaline soil that is sharply drained and in full sun.

THREE WAYS TO... ENSURE YOU BUY THE RIGHT SHRUBS Make sure the plant is going to end up the right size. Check the dimensions on the label to ensure it will fit into the space you have available when it matures.

Make sure the plant has a good, even shape when you buy it. The flowers may mask the overall shape if it is in bloom when you first purchase it.

Check that the foliage isn't wilting or damaged in any way as this may suggest it has root problems caused by drying out or poor watering regimes.

GOOD ENOUGH TO EAT FIGS

WHAT TO DO THIS WEEK: IN YOUR GARDEN

We’ve come a long way since ‘figgy pudding’ first graced our tables back in the 16th century, but figs are still a luxury item at Christmas, served baked with honey or even as an Italian starter with Proscuitto.

If you’ve escaped the Christmas mayhem, take a walk up the garden and make notes about shrubs which need moving and how you can enhance borders in the New Year.

While they prefer sunnier climes, it is possible to grow them here in the UK if you can protect them from frost. They need a sunny spot in slightly alkaline, deep, rich, moisture-retentive soil. If you live in a really cold area, plant them next to a wall or fence which will protect them from harsh winds. You need to be patient with figs, which take several years to crop well and it’s worth protecting the branches carrying embryo fruits in winter with straw, conifer prunings or bracken held in place with netting. At the same time, remove any unripe figs from the previous summer. You may also need to protect ripening fruits from wasps and birds. Alternatively, grow them in pots in a sunny, sheltered site and transfer them to cold but frost-free conditions in winter.

Enjoy a day out with the family at a public garden - many National Trust properties and other public gardens are open between Christmas and New Year. Sow seeds of houseplants, tuberous begonias and slow-germinating greenhouse exotics under glass. Sharpen tools to give you clean cuts in the New Year. Reorganise your storage space by putting up tool racks in the shed or garage. If the weather turns freezing cold, lag sacks and boxes of vegetables with newspaper in the shed or bring them into a cool area indoors. Continue forcing witloof chicory. Check that winter outdoor plants, including clipped boxes and bays in pots, don’t dry out. Sow exhibition onions. Prune ornamental vines. Clear debris such as ivy from the bottom of hedges and any other fallen leaves or rubbish which may be harbouring slugs and snails.

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

WINTER TYRE WARNING • Antifreeze Keep it topped up regularly and keep in your car for an emergency. • Battery This is the most common cause of winter breakdowns. Keep this checked regularly and replaced if necessary. • Fuel Keep at least a quarter of a tank in case of unexpected delays. • Snow and Ice Survival Kits These are invaluable if you get stuck during the winter months. Always make sure you travel with the following items - a fully charged mobile phone and in car charger, a blanket and/or warm clothes, a shovel, a pot of salt or sand, an ice scraper and de-icer, a torch and batteries and bottled water.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION Please remember to gather the following in the event of an accident: •

Car details, including registration number • Driver’s name and contact details, including address • Any witness details • Any injuries

NEW LAMBORGHINI Officially unveiled this month , the new Lamborghini Huracan, which will become available in the Spring. The car will reach 60 mph in just 3.2 seconds and go on to a top speed close to 200 mph. Powered by a 5.2 litre 610 hp V10 engine, Lamborghini says the new model will “redefine the super sports car experience” and will be the brand’s ‘next automotive legend.” The Huracan - named after a famous 19th century Spanish bull features an innovative cockpit with a 12.3 inch full-color instrument panel

delivering all car information to the driver, from rev counter to navigation maps and infotainment functions. The power of the V10 engine is brought to the road via the new 7-speed dual clutch transmission ‘’Lamborghini Doppia Frizione’’ and fully electronically controlled four-wheel drive system. The different driving modes of the Huracán can be selected via a driving dynamics selector switch in the steering wheel -- from traction-oriented on the road to extreme performance on the race track.

The Huracán’s carbon-ceramic brakes are a standard feature while variable steering ratio system and magneto-rheologic suspension damper control are available as options for further customization of the car’s dynamic behavior.

redefine the super sports car experience

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.

to buying); Smaller deposit/upfront payment – provided you have a good credit record this will typically be 3 months as opposed to 10 or 20% for a loan. Flexibility – although it will increase your payment you can extend the mileage if you like and you can extend the period (which will decrease your monthly payment) and you can opt to buy the car at the end.

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

Car Leasing Is available for both business & personal users.

What benefits will you get for owning the car? This might include: owning the car for as long as you like; driving an unlimited amount of miles.

The different modes ensure extensive modification in road behavior of the Huracán. In particular they influence the set-ups of several systems, such as the gearbox and engine behavior, the sound, the four-wheel-drive system and electronic stability control.

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 You’re probably telling yourself something like “I should exercise right now. If I don’t work out, I’m never going to get fit.” This statement has many hidden obstacles. For one thing, feeling like you should do something makes it seem like work, or an obligation. That’s no fun. You’re also thinking about what will happen if you don’t exercise-in other words, you’re threatening yourself with punishment (the image of being unfit). Subconsciously, you’re flooding your mind with negativity. Instead, remember that exercise is a choice, and it’s about whether you want to, or not! And instead of thinking about how you’ll look if you don’t work out, think about how great you’d look if you did!

NEW YEAR NEW YOU THIS WEEK: 6 GREAT WAYS TO MOTIVATE YOURSELF TO EXERCISE At this point, everyone is pretty much aware of the huge upside to exercising regularly. The reason that there aren’t more people doing it, is the sheer lack of motivation. There is nothing that pushes them enough to go out there and exercise. Fortunately, there are some very useful ways which you can use to motivate yourself to become a more active individual. Let me elaborate on each one of them a bit more: CHANGE FROM A “MAYBE” TO A “MUST” The first thing you need to do is to categorically include exercise into your lifestyle without any maybe’s or but’s. Exercising should be a must within your daily routine. Within your time management, there should always be time allocated to exercising. I can’t stress enough how important this is.

SURROUND YOURSELF WITH FITNESS-ORIENTED PEOPLE. If you are not exercising, have a look at your close unit of acquaintances. Chances are that most if not all of them are just as non-active as you are. If you want to be successful at not only starting but staying active over time, you definitely need to have friends that share this same goal with you. Having a training partner is one of the best ways to get yourself the proper motivation to keep at it day in and day out. WANT TO BE BETTER LOOKING? With a little patience and a strong will, you can literally reshape your entire body via exercise. Use this desire of seeking to be more attractive to your advantage and turn it into pure motivation to exercise. Sure, there are tons of reasons why people exercise, but I am certain

that 100% do it partly to be more attractive. THINK LONG TERM HEALTH BENEFITS The thing with health, is that we do not “see” it. It’s hidden, and thus in a very visual and superficial society such as our current one, it becomes secondary to looks. Luckily, people are becoming more and more concerned with being healthy and living a better quality of life as they get older. Use this to your advantage as well to motivate yourself to exercise. The list of health benefits that exercising provides you with is just enormous. WORK TOWARDS A GOAL. Do you have a reunion to go to in a few months and you want to look your best? Do you have a vacation planned and you want to look fantastic in a bathing suit? Do you idolize a certain person and want to look just

like them? These types of goals are extremely powerful, and can provide unrelenting motivation that can then carry you towards those very goals. The key is to always have such a goal, because you don’t want to go back to your old ways once you have reached that goal. I’m sure you’ve seen people flip flop over and over again with their fitness, and this is due to the fact that once they reach their goal, they do not have another one to aim for. Always have something to work towards, and every time you reach one, create a new one. SIMPLY START As hard as it is to get yourself to start, you will be happy to know that things get much better as you keep going. The steepest hill to climb over is to start. Once you start, you have conquered the biggest obstacle. This is something that you should be proud of, in and of itself.

Eliminate processed carbohydrates from your diet. This, initially, will appear harder than you first think. Breakfast cereals, pasta, bread, white rice, cakes, are all processed carbs. If you took a more Palaeolithic approach, eating like our forefathers, your meals would consist of vegetables, fruit, meat, and dairy, and this approach would boost your immune system, reduce your inflammation and risk of inflammatory diseases, cut out your risk of getting type 2 diabetes and you would become much leaner. Use organic filtered coffee before exercise. Coffee has been shown to help you focus and concentrate, it also mobilises fat cells so reduces the use of carbohydrate (glycogen in the muscles) as full and increases the use of fat as fuel. After your exercise coffee should be avoided. The caffeine in coffee will maintain an elevated stress hormone environment in your body, this will hinder the repair process that the body should now be going through. Keep a diary. If you plan, you plan to improve. Therefore you should keep a log of your training and of your meals each day. This will help you stay focused on Y ONL your goals.

FOOD & DRINK

HAVE A SOUP-ER NEW YEAR

Winter’s not over yet, so keep the cold at bay with a warming bowl of soup. Not bad for the waistline, either, if you’ve overdone it a bit at Christmas.

Once upon a time, soup was something that only came from a can and in a handful of flavours. Comforting, definitely, but not exactly inspiring. There’s also the connotation, because soup was often given to poorly children, that it’s something you consume when you’re ill. To this day, I can’t eat Heinz chicken soup without thinking I’m missing school with a bad cold... Soup has moved on since then, and we’re familiar with all manner of varieties from all over the world. We have the big British broths and country farmhouse types, chunks

of vegetables floating in delicious liquid. There’s the robust, like French Onion soup, served with islands of toasted baguette and covered in melted cheese, or pea and ham the rich pea texture cut by the saltiness of the pork. Soup can be delicate, too, typified by the Japanese miso soup, or perhaps one using vegetables such as courgette, fennel and, perish the thought, nettles, which take on a gorgeous cabbage-like taste when cooked. Soup doesn’t always have to be hot either, proved by gazpacho, the chilled Spanish vegetable variety.

RECIPE

Creamy chicken soup Ingredients 1kg pack free-range chicken thighs, skin removed 300ml dry white wine 2 large onions, cut into large wedges 4 celery sticks, quartered 3 leeks, quartered 2 sprigs thyme, plus extra

leaves for sprinkling 2 bay leaves 1tsp salt 1/2tsp ground white, or black, pepper 40g plain flour 300ml double cream 2l water

Method Put the chicken thighs in a very large, heavy-based pan and fry for a few mins, turning frequently to lightly colour them. Pour in the wine, turn up the heat and boil rapidly to evaporate the alcohol. Pile in the veg and herbs, add one teaspoon of salt and the white (or black) pepper. Pour in two litres of boiling water. Cover the pan and simmer for 45 minutes until the chicken and veg are tender. Take out the bay leaves and thyme sprigs and cool for about 30 minutes. Remove chicken from the soup, then strip the meat from the bones. Put all but 140g of the chicken back into the pan. Blitz the soup with a hand blender or in batches in a food processor until very smooth, then return to the pan. Blend the flour and cream together with a couple of ladles of the soup, then stir the creamy mixture into the rest of the soup and heat, stirring continuously, until thickened. You can blitz again if it looks a little lumpy. Chop the remaining chicken and stir into the soup. Scatter with thyme leaves to serve. 134

If you want to save a bit of money, soup’s the perfect lunch to take to work with you. Make it in advance, invest in some plastic containers and freeze in portion-size batches. As long as your office has a microwave, you’re going to see the savings in no time, and you’ll have a more satisfying lunch than your colleagues! Let’s not forget the health benefits either. Soup’s a great way to pack in your five-aday and, providing you leave out the cream, croutons, butter and extra cheese, is very low fat and low-calorie, too.

Method Heat a large saucepan and dry-fry the cumin seeds and chilli flakes for one minute or until aromatic. Add the oil and onion, and cook for five minutes.

RECIPE

Roast carrot soup with pancetta croutons

SERVES 2

Ingredients 700g carrots, cut into batons 2tbsp olive oil 4 garlic cloves, skin on Few thyme sprigs Small knob of butter 2 onions, finely chopped 700ml chicken stock, made up with 1 cube

6tbsp double cream Salt and pepper For the croutons: 6 slices pancetta 2 thick slices rustic bread, cut into soldiers (or sourdough) Drizzle olive oil Black pepper

Method Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Put the carrots, half the oil, the garlic and thyme in a roasting tin. Season and toss everything together. Pop in the oven and roast for 45 to 50 minutes, or until tender and beginning to turn golden. Meanwhile, heat the remaining oil and butter in a large saucepan. Tip in the onions and cook over a low heat for 10 minutes until soft. When the carrots are done, remove from the oven. Squeeze the soft roasted garlic cloves out of their skins and pop in the saucepan. Tip in the carrots and discard any woody thyme stalks. Pour over the stock, bring to the boil, then simmer for 10 minutes. To make the croutons, wrap the pancetta around the soldiers, leaving the ends of the bread exposed. Put on a baking tray, drizzle with a little oil and grind over some black pepper. Bake for 10 minutes until the pancetta and bread edges are crisp. While the croutons are cooking, blitz the soup with a hand blender, then sieve into a clean saucepan, pressing to get as much liquid through as possible. Add five tablespoons of the cream, heat through and season. Adjust the thickness with a little water, if you like. Serve drizzled with the remaining cream and the croutons, and garnish the soup with thyme. 135

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.

FOOD & DRINK

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

After Christmas and New Year it’s time for Burns Night, on January 25th. Burns Night is a celebration of the life and poetry of Robert Burns, author of many Scots poems. It is marked with a Burns Supper where guests eat a traditional Scottish meal of haggis, neeps and tatties, drink Scotch whisky and recite Burns poetry. Here are a few traditional elements for your own Burns Supper. Traditional bagpipe music to welcome guests to the table and whilst your guests stand as you bring the haggis to the table. ‘Address to a Haggis‘ is recited and the haggis is cut and a toast is raised to “The Haggis!” with a dram of whisky and at the end the night everyone joins hands to sing ‘Auld Lang Syne‘.

Ingredients

Method

1. 2 Onions, peeled

1. Place the onions, hearts and liver in a saucepan, cover with water and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 40 minutes, then drain out the contents and reserve a small amount of the cooking water.

2. 2 Sheep’s hearts 3. 400g lambs liver 4. 50g oatmeal 5. 75g shredded suet 6. 2 tablespoons of chopped sage 7. 1 pinch mixed spice 8. Freshly ground black pepper 9. Butter for greasing

SERVES 4

2. Pass the meat and onions through a mincer or chop finely in a food processor. Stir in the oatmeal, suet, sage and spice. Also add a little amount of the cooking liquid and plenty of pepper. 3. Grease an 800ml ovenproof pudding bowl. Place the haggis mixture into the bowl, cover the bowl with greased foil and tie the foil on with string.  4. Place the bowl in a saucepan on a trivet. Fill the pan with boiling water to come half way up the sides of the bowl, cover, and then return to a gentle boil. 5. Steam the haggis for 2 hours, topping up with boiling water as necessary, this prevents the pan and meat from dry boiling.  6. After 2 hours turn the haggis out and slice. Serve the haggis with roasted parsnips and potatoes, both dusted with curry powder.

List your jobs, most recent first, with dates, followed by a description of your responsibilities and achievements. Ensure it is grammatically correct, no spelling mistakes, concise and to the point.

SCHOOLS

BUCKHOLME TOWERS SCHOOL AND NURSERY 2014 SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATIONS NOW OPEN For the second year, Buckholme Towers School and Nursery is giving children aged six to eight years old the opportunity to apply for a scholarship with the aim of joining the school as a pupil in September 2014. Headmaster Iain Robertson explains: “We offer scholarships to students who show exceptional academic ability in areas such as maths and English as well as the non-academic fields of art, music, sport and drama. Those awarded scholarships are eligible for up to 50 per cent discount on the current tuition fees. “On Saturday 8th February at 9.30am we are holding examinations for current Buckholme pupils as well as external candidates in Year’s 2, 3 and 4. Students will be tested in their reading comprehension and spelling ability, English writing, mathematics and verbal and non-verbal reasoning. Children entering the nonacademic exams are required to show evidence of their potential such as certificates or to perform in music or drama. Parents will be able to meet senior staff and have a tour of the recently refurbished school.

“A SCHOLARSHIP SCHEME IS A WAY OF RECOGNISING THEIR POTENTIAL ABOVE AND BEYOND THE ALREADY HIGH STANDARDS OF THE SCHOOL ”

“For current Buckholme students, a scholarship scheme is a way of recognising their potential above and beyond the already high standards of the school. External candidates will be welcomed into a family environment where traditional values are at the heart of everything we do. We believe wholeheartedly in the advantages of small classes and teaching the children on an individual basis. “Because assessment is part of the culture at Buckholme, our pupils quickly learn to take it in their stride. Most go on to do public examinations such as the 11 plus, for grammar school at which a large percentage of our students go on to achieve places. This is undoubtedly a success criterion for many of our parents. Pinpointing their strengths early on and celebrating their successes and achievements at every opportunity means that self-esteem and confidence are high.

“Music, sport, drama and art are high on the agenda at Buckholme and with the ‘can do’ culture that exists, most become involved in everything that is on offer. In this way, every child is happy because they have something to celebrate.” *For more information about the scholarship examination please contact the school via the details on the next page. Scholarship results will be posted out to parents by the Saturday 22nd February.
