NATIONAL SUCCESS FOR EVENLINES

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

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. Evenlines is now the most successful aesthetics clinic in Dorset with over 1800 clients and offers a range of nonsurgical cosmetic treatments to repair the effects of ageing and health related conditions of the skin.

Ian Williams of Ocean Finance said: “Clearly the UK is a nation obsessed. The desire to own our own home is part of our national culture, and our research suggests that even when we have bought a property, that obsession doesn’t go away. “With house prices on the rise and confidence returning to the property market, 2014 could see a surge in people considering a move. However, even those who have no plans to do so will keep on looking – it’s part of our national DNA.”

FINANCE

THE YEAR AHEAD Martyn Charlwood, our resident investment and pension specialist reflects on 2013 and ponders over what 2014 may have in store for investors. As we enter 2014 we wave goodbye to the most prolonged period of monetary stimulus in history. Over the past five years central bank buying (through the quantitative easing programme) caused bond yields to fall to well below 2% and equity markets to rally to, and in some cases, exceed the pre-credit crunch highs.

purchasing of fixed interest bonds the positive effects had spread across asset classes as investors looked for alternatives to almost zero rates of interest on their savings accounts. The prospect of an end to this stimulus led to a sharp rise in bond yields and a sudden sell-off in equity markets, with emerging markets being hit particularly hard.

During this time the art of valuing investments was replaced by second-guessing the extent of quantitative easing and, more latterly, when central banks would feel sufficiently confident to begin removing this stimulus. In May 2013 the head of the US Federal Reserve, Ben Bernanke, suggested that he was considering a gradual withdrawal of the $85 billion monthly bond purchases that formed the main pillar of quantitative easing.

The severity of this action caused the Federal Reserve to pull back. However, a better managed approach, which included offering investors a ‘forward guidance’ loosely linking an eventual rise in interest rates to lower levels of unemployment, saw markets react positively to the lateDecember announcement of a reduction in the amount of monthly stimulus to $75 billion. This was helped by signs of improving economic growth in both the US and UK. The key to a successful 2014 will be whether central banks

Although quantitative easing over the past five years had involved the

can manage the gradual withdrawal of monetary stimulus without upsetting the economic recovery. While this may prove disruptive in the short term, it is ultimately a good sign that we are approaching a more normalised investment environment in which fundamental data, rather than second-guessing the Fed, will influence investment decisions. My feeling is that 2014 will be a challenging but ultimately profitable year for investments. Markets are likely to be more volatile than in 2013 but these setbacks could present useful buying opportunities. New Year is typically a time for reflection and an opportunity to consider what improvements can be made. Did you benefit from stellar returns in 2013? Is your portfolio positioned to take advantage of what 2014 has in store...

NICE & TIDY

TOP TIP 1

Always de-clutter before buying new storage, otherwise you won’t know the right solution for your needs.

LAMCO

It’s not unusual at this time of year to feel as though your possessions are winning the space war and you’re being squeezed out. But of all the aspirational (if unrealistic) goals we set ourselves, decluttering and getting your house organised is, arguably, the most achievable. “Nothing acts more like a tonic for the hungover soul than a jolly good tidy,” says Barbara Genda, founder and principal designer at Barbara Genda Bespoke Furniture. “Ample research suggests that clutter and mess causes us untold stress. Stuffed cupboards, dishevelled drawers, haphazardly strewn and displaced possessions without a designated ‘living’ space all culminates into a loud, unrelenting visual ‘noise’ that can make us feel boxed-in, overwhelmed and even anxious.” Luckily, there are a multitude of solutions for organising mess -particularly if you’re a natural hoarder - from stackable boxes to sophisticated storage systems. “Pack all of that mess away and immediately you’ll discern the positive effects. You’ll have a calmer environment in which you can relax, be productive and at the very least, think straight,” she says.

FREE-UP LIVING SPACE "Decluttering isn't about throwing everything away," says Simon Glanville, managing director of storage specialists, Store. "It's about losing what's useless and ugly in order to have space for things that are useful and beautiful. But it's easy to feel overwhelmed and keep putting off that clear-up," he adds. "Start with one single drawer or shelf at a time. Set a timer for 20 minutes and stop when the alarm goes off. Always tidy up first thing in the morning, so once the chore's done you're free to enjoy the rest of your day."

DESIGN FOR DRESSERS "A bed is the functional heart of a bedroom and also harbours the most overlooked source of hidden storage," says Simon Glanville at Store. "A tucked-away underthe-bed storage system keeps a lot of clutter neatly out of sight. "Of course, wardrobe space is vital. Try to edit clothing by using the reverse hanger technique. Turn all hangers the wrong way round and then when you wear something and put it back replace the hanger the right way, which at the end of a few months will give you a guide to the pieces you wear regularly and others which could be stored or given away."

Luxury interiors Allure Interiors is the latest addition to the list of Interior Designers in Dorset. Sarah Ali, Director is planning to take her business to the next level. She is working tirelessly to stand out from the crowd and attain her ambition of working with homes, businesses and property developers. She has only been in business for 8 months and has already been asked to design the Office of the President and the Ministers' Offices in the Republic of South Sudan. Sarah will be attending Juba in Spring 2014 to complete her plan. Sarah has also bought a recovered plane and is currently having the components fitted out by "Kirolite" the award winning business which was set up to design and produce customised components and bespoke furniture for industries including marine, construction and furniture who work together with Sunseeker Yachts. Sarah's plan is to create iconic furniture and brand it. She is currently recreating an airline food trolley along with other various parts of the plane. Allure Interiors took part in the Southern Home Show Exhibition at Alexandra Palace. Furnishings were courtesy of Lamco in Poole, renowned for their quality and innovation. She doesn't stop there, Sarah has been asked to write a column for a local publication on Home Staging. This is where her passion lies.

Having worked in the luxurious Sandbanks for more than 6 years Sarah knows what delights people when looking at what may be their new home. She works hard to make a house appealing to clients who are looking to buy and believes that without spending a fortune you can give your house the "WOW FACTOR". If you are looking to sell your property and would like advice on how to get the most out of your house get in touch with Sarah immediately. Courses are now being offered on Interior Design and Home Staging by Sarah. Information is also available via the website.


Furniture for your home Sarah Rehana Ali, a mother of four, has been collecting old aircraft parts and has now transformed them into items of furniture for her home and garden. She is planning to exhibit her aviation-themed designs in the Southern Home Show at London’s Alexandra Palace. Mrs Ali, whose parents own the Taj Mahal restaurant in Bridport, has had to juggle work with caring for her young family. But after studying at the British College of Interior Design she has launched her new business, Allure Interiors, and hopes to bring her quirky designs to a wide audience. She said: “The business is still very new and I am trying to build a brand. It is the sort of thing that no one else is doing at the moment and I am hoping that it will appeal to lots of people."

ASK THE LETTINGS EXPERT Sharon Canning Move On Rentals

Insurance may not cover properties in flood risk areas! Over the winter we have seen unprecedented floods all over the country. What many people may not be aware is the Government has reached a deal with insurers to replace the ‘Statement of principles’ (which ran out in July 2013) with a new scheme call ‘Flood Re’ due to commence in the summer of 2015. Statement of principles was originally set up for insurers to offer affordable flood coverage to the vast majority of households in return for the Government maintaining its spending of flood defences, which was felt to be untenable. The replacement scheme ‘Flood Re’ will leave millions of homes without access to affordable flood insurance. The exclusions are: • Leasehold properties; • The entire private rented sector (including holiday lets, HMO’s) • Small and medium-sized business (SMEs); • Housing association homes; • New-build homes constructed after January 2009; • Council homes; and • Properties in council tax band H.

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

0808 808 00 00

With almost 5 million leasehold properties thought to be in England and Wales, and over 4 million homes in the private rented sector, this means that many millions of properties are likely to be excluded, rather than the widely-cited estimate of 9,000 homes. The Association of British Insurers (ABI) claimed that, “Flood Re will cover domestic properties, regardless of whether leasehold or freehold”. Official census data shows that there are 3,137,000 homes in the private leasehold sector, and 773,000 leasehold conversions in former houses, which are likely to be in small blocks run by leaseholders and may not have the muscle to obtain affordable flood cover if they are in flood-prone areas. Ian Fletcher, Director of Policy at the British Property Federation, said: “…People who live in leasehold properties will be able to insure their contents, but that will be cold comfort to them if they cannot afford to repair the structure of their home, replace their kitchen or mend their pipes and electricity cables.” The new policy states you must be a home owner and it is your main residence. The Association of British Insurers (ABI) have released a questions and answers on their website www.abi.org.uk if you require further information.

DO YOU RUN YOUR OWN BUSINESS? It’s all well and good seeking out the cheapest business insurance premiums year after year and with insurers direct, on-line quote facilities and broker’s telesales teams flooding the market; your range of options has never been greater. However the hidden cost of servicing could well outweigh many savings. Choosing your professional advisor is something you should do wisely when seeking the most competitive terms for your business. Spending your valuable time on the phone chasing documentation from your insurers or brokers, chasing claims, checking and amending any spelling errors on documentation; the 116 list is endless.

So how can you minimise your exposure and subsequent time spent in this area? Many insurance brokers work on a commission or fee basis, so it’s worth checking to see the extent of services they include for their arrangement fees. A good quality insurance broker may even have a customer service charter which not only promotes a quality service but should also outline the standards of service their clients should expect and what to do in the event of a complaint. Is the documentation written in plain English? Can your broker clearly explain to you any differences in cover or conditions and warranties?

Good old fashioned word of mouth can speak volumes regarding a broker or insurer. Hearing that other clients similar to you happily use the services of the broker - and are pleased with the service they receive - speaks volumes. Do they have any recommendations or testimonials from their existing clients they can offer you? On the occasions where you have adjustments or queries, is it clear who to call? Do you get a single point of contact? How accessible are they? Are you lost in an automated telephone system? Do they listen to your query and take ownership of your issue? Are they happy to come and visit you to run through your issue in person if required?

A broker who can advise you on Risk Management measures that are simple to implement, will help negotiate preferential terms and even avoid future claims. This is of huge value as not only are claims negotiations lengthy but also subsequent premium rises are possible. For further information regarding any of the content above please contact:-

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%.

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.

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.

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 122 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.

We all have problems with our teeth. We can lose them in accidents; because of infections or simply from the everyday stresses that life brings. This can sometimes leave us feeling a little helpless and embarrassed. Why settle for a denture that has to be taken out every day, when we can give you a full set of beautiful, smile-worthy new teeth? Here at South Coast Dental we offer a number of solutions for your denture dilemmas. Mini Implants: Four mini implants are inserted into the bone. Small implants are placed above the gum level, so your denture can have forces applied during your healing phase. Approximate costs involved: £2,400 per set. Conventional Implants: Three implants are inserted into the bone. Implants are placed into the jaw and a 6-8 week healing period follows. They are then uncovered and your denture is attached to give you the retention and stability you require. Approximate costs involved: £5,000 per set. All-on-four Fixed Teeth: remaining teeth removed and gap replaced with fixed teeth in just one day. Two implants are placed at the front of the mouth and two at the side. These are angled to provide the best platform. We then place an immediate fixed bridge so you leave with a brand new set of fixed teeth. Approximate costs involved: £12,500 to £15,000 per arch.

If you’re tired of letting your teeth get you down, then let us know on 01202 889960 or via email at reception3@southcoastdental.co.uk where our highly skilled team of dentists will soon have you back on track enjoying the everyday pleasures of life and feeling as confident as you deserve. 11, Merley Park Road, Wimborne, Dorset, BH21 3DA

HEALTH & BEAUTY

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!

BOOTCAMP BENE-FITS THIS WEEK: THE BENEFITS OF FITTER THAN FIT To lose weight, you need to burn more calories than you consume. Exercise, especially intense cardiovascular types that utilize the major muscle groups, burns a lot of calories. Thai boxing qualifies as a moderate to high-intensity cardiovascular workout that burns calories and helps you build muscle tone. Whether you are Thai boxing in a private studio or participate with us at Fitter Than Fit Boot Camp, Thai boxing can help you lose weight. FEATURES OF FITTER THAN FIT Thai boxing combines moves to deliver a total body workout. Classes usually follow a format involving a fiveto 10-minute warmup, punching and kicking drills interspersed with athletic conditioning and a five minute stretch and cool-down. The movements are repetitive to hone agility and speed,

as well as proper execution of movement.

HERE ARE A FEW BENEFITS THAT MAY HELP YOU TAKE THAT STEP

WEIGHT LOSS POTENTIAL A pound of weight equals 3,500 calories. You must burn about 500 calories more than you consume in a day to lose just 1lb. per week. Coupling exercise efforts with a low-calorie diet can accelerate weight loss. A 135lb. person will burn about 350 to 450 calories in a 50-minute class. So, assuming you are not eating more calories than your body burns, if you add in a Fitter Than Fit class three times per week, you can burn about 1,200 extra calories per week, yielding .34 lbs. of weight loss per week. If you reduce your calorie intake by 500 calories daily in addition to the Thai Boxing, you can lose 1.34 lbs. per week. ITS NEVER TOO LATE TO GET FIT, THE HARDEST PART FOR MOST PEOPLE IS MAKING THE DECISION AND TAKING THE FIRST STEP

• Stress reduction • Weight Loss • Increased coordination • Increased flexibility • Increased strength • Increased endurance

GENERAL MARTIAL ARTS BENEFITS • Self-defence & personal protection skills • Individual development • Fun Your first class is free, all you need to do is turn up, the rest is easy!

MENTAL BENEFITS • Increased self-control • Increased self-confidence • Improved study, communication, and leadership skills • Improved confidence, self-image, and concentration • Increased enthusiasm & a positive mental outlook BEHAVIOURAL BENEFITS

DID YOU KNOW We offer Thai boxing and fitness classes for kids under 18, if you want your kids to have more confidence, self discipline and higher fitness levels it’s only £25 per month for all the classes. Contact Michael for more information.

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.

1 2 3 4 5

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!

2. 6 small Welsh lamb shanks

2. Heat the vegetable oil in a large pan to a high heat, once the pan is hot enough add the lamb shanks and brown all over on a high heat.

The 1st of March sees the annual celebration of Saint David’s Day, the patron saint of Wales. Saint David’s Day is a national holiday in Wales, and in remembrance Welsh people usually wear one or both of the national emblems, a daffodil and a leek. Here is a recipe for traditional Welsh lamb cawl, other traditional Welsh food eaten on the day includes Welsh cakes, Bara brith bread loaf, Welsh onion cake and Welsh rarebit.

MOTORING

SEAT LEON FR

MOTORING NEWS

Sporty hatchbacks have long been a hallmark of Spanish manufacturer SEAT, part of the VW-Audi Group. The Leon FR is the latest sharply-styled performance model from SEAT and it sits on the same chassis as its stablemates the Audi A3 and Volkswagen Golf.

The latest news on all things motoring. By Nick Fletcher

BATTERY ADVICE Breakdown cover specialist GEM Motoring Assist say battery problems account for half of all its call-outs. “The winter break is over, and thousands of motorists are returning to their cars for journeys to work and of course, the kids are back to school,” says GEM chief executive David Williams. “Our records show that the majority of callouts at this time of year result from cars not starting, mostly because of flat batteries. “Lower temperatures also place a car battery under extra stress. But a few simple checks will reduce the chance of your battery letting you down.” Take following battery care:

advice

for

• Don’t overwork the battery when you’re trying to start your car. If your engine doesn’t start first time, operate the starter in ten second bursts and then turn the ignition off for 30 seconds, before trying again. • If your car won’t start or feels lethargic when you turn the key, then you could well have a flat battery. The way to check is by switching on your headlights. If they’re weak or they don’t work, then your battery is flat. • ‘Bump starting’ a car could offer a one-off solution to get you going, provided it’s safe. However, if it doesn’t work at the first attempt then don’t try again, because unburned fuel is likely to damage your car’s catalytic converter. This method is not suitable for automatic cars. • ‘Jump starting’ requires a set of jump leads and either a power pack or donor car. There are dangers associated with jump starting, so make sure you know what you’re doing.

This means excellent handling and good body control, and with lower and stiffer suspension too, this Leon is composed and assured at all times. My FR test model had the 2.0 litre 150 hp diesel engine, giving a 0-60 mph time of 8.3 seconds and a top speed of 134 mph. Nifty figures, but not at the expense of fuel consumption, for the Leon FR returns 68.9 mpg combined. FR models get sharper visual character than the standard Leon, with redesigned

bumpers, twin exhausts, larger wheels and front sports seats, and there is no doubt the car is an eye-catcher. The Leon range starts at £15,550 but the high-spec FR models are flagship versions and my test car was priced at £21,565. That is still cheaper than a comparable Golf, and it could be argued the Leon gives more kudos as it is a rarer sight.

Standard kit on all Leon models is good, and includes seven airbags, stability control, five-inch colour touch-screen, air-con, Bluetooth, USB and AUX ports and an SD card slot, remote locking and even a tyre pressure monitoring system. The FR version adds much more, including cruise control, climate control, front and rear parking sensors, 17 inch alloys and LED tail-lights.

Underway, the FR is smooth and responsive, and the 6-speed gearshift is slick. Ride quality is on the firm side, but not uncomfortable, and the precise handling and agility are impressive.

Despite its sporting credentials, the FR is still a very practical everyday car, with a roomy interior, including the rear seats which offer good head and leg space. The boot offers 380 litres of space, bigger than that of a Ford Focus, and you can boost the load space by folding the rear seats. No doubt about it, the Leon FR does stand out in its class, and with near 70mpg fuel economy and low emissions, stacks up as a very appealing package.

While the car is very appealing from the outside, the cabin design seems a little muted, though the layout of instruments and switchgear is fine and the driving position very good.

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.

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.

SCHOOLS

BUCKHOLME TOWERS SCHOOL AND NURSERY HITTING THE HIGH NOTE AT BUCKHOLME TOWERS SCHOOL AND NURSERY As part of the national curriculum Buckholme Towers School and Nursery offers music lessons as well as extracurricular activities to widen pupils’ skillsets, boost confidence and make new friends. Headmaster Iain Robertson explains: “At Buckholme we are very proud of the high educational standards our students reach as well as the fantastic achievements in non-academic areas such as music and sport. We encourage every pupil from six years old to get involved in some form of performance whether it is acting, singing, music or sport, so that they can have fun, mix with children in other age groups and learn the importance of team work. “In music, we have specialist teachers who ensure pupils learn the theory behind the subject and try a wide range of instruments including saxophone, clarinet, violin, cello, drums and guitar. As soon as the children achieve a certain standard in music they are invited to join the school orchestra. The orchestra is a 30-strong group of mixed ability girls and boys from Year 2 to 6. When students participate in group activities such as this, music becomes fun and they enjoy playing alongside each other.

“OUR MOST RECOGNISABLE SHINING STAR IS CELLIST NATALIE CLIEN, NOW 37, WHO HAS PERFORMED WITH ORCHESTRAS AROUND THE WORLD.”

“Children soon learn that playing an instrument requires discipline, they have to practise to improve. They can buy their own instruments or rent from the school and receive tuition from peripatetic teachers. There are a number of opportunities for them to join in external musical activities or to be part of the school choir and sing for local charities, churches or clubs as well as showcasing their talent in school concerts. Last year the choir helped to raise hundreds of pounds for local causes.

“Every March we host the ‘B-Factor’, a talent show which has been a Buckholme tradition for years. B-Factor gives children the chance to shine outside the classroom, through music, singing and acting – we’ve even had some stand-up comedy! Our pupils love the opportunity to perform in front of their friends and showcase their talents. Many of our musicians leave Buckholme at Grade 3 level, some achieving even higher, with a number going on to gain scholarships at independent senior schools. “Our most recognisable shining star is cellist Natalie Clien, now 37, who has performed with orchestras around the world including venues in Salzburg, Vienna, Tokyo and Sydney. At 16 she won both BBC Young Musician of the Year and the Eurovision Competition for Young Musicians and in 2005 she won the classical BRIT for Young British Performer.

Alana Chewins is 4 years old and has just started playing the violin 146

“Over the years we have seen our pupils excel and go on to achieve great success as adults. Whatever their skills, we aim to help children flourish in subjects that they enjoy and so ultimately they learn that education can be fun and rewarding.”
