CHANGES TO HEALTH & SAFTEY LAW POSTER Dorset-based insurance and risk management specialists Alan & Thomas Insurance are warning local businesses that the deadline for replacing the old Health & Safety Law poster and displaying the new version at their premises is 5th April 2014. The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) published a new simplified poster and leaflet in April 2009 to replace the 1999 versions and to help avoid any unnecessary burden on businesses, the HSE Board set a five-year transition period for replacing them. This 5 year grace period runs out on 5 April so all old posters and leaflets must be replaced with the 2009 versions. “Employers have a legal duty under the Health and Safety Information for Employees Regulations 1989 to display the approved poster in a prominent position in each workplace, or to provide each worker with a copy of the approved leaflet that outlines British health and safety law” explains Stewart King, Chief

THE NEXT PHASE IN RETIREMENT LIVING

Operations Officer at Alan & Thomas. Research showed that the 1999 versions of the H&S law poster and leaflet were visually unappealing and rarely read so they were redesigned to be more readable, colourful and engaging. It sets out in simple terms, using numbered lists of basic points, what employers and workers must do, as well as showing what to do if there is a problem. Under the Employers’ Liability (Compulsory Insurance) Act 1969, businesses are also obliged to display a current employer’s liability insurance in a prominent position where employees can view it.

Platinum Skies is launching The Redwood Collection, the next phase at the luxury development Homefield Park, exclusively for over 55s located at Winkton near Christchurch. The Redwood Collection is a range of four detached and four semi-detached elegant homes nestled to the rear of the stunning parkland. With lovely views of the communal green and the listed Georgian mansion, these homes have a lovely tranquil village feel to them. The launch of The Redwood Collection also allows Platinum Skies to open two brand new show homes. Both of them emphasise the size of these beautifully presented homes, which are all individually designed to support the lifestyle of the over 55s customer - both now and as their needs change over time. Platinum Skies offers its customers more than just wonderful homes, the developers of Homefield Park also provide a range of additional benefits and support that only their customers get access too. The Exchange Pledge  is a unique home exchange scheme which takes the stress out of selling a customer’s old house, and moving into a new Platinum Skies home, by simply exchanging homes. They also offer a completely refined set of services called The Lifestyle Collection – which is exclusive to Homefield Park and free to customers for the first year. With access to a personal concierge service, 5 star rated home insurance and emergency protection, inhome cleaning, gardening and window cleaning and more… The special launch weekend for The Redwood Collection is from Friday 28th February to Sunday 2nd March from 10am. Come along and see how these beautifully located, elegantly designed homes will change the way you live. You can find out more on the website www.homefield-park. com or call the sales team on 01202 983039.

WINKWORTH WESTBOURNE LIGHT THE WAY! Winkworth Westbourne have just installed the latest technology in their prominent high street office on Poole Road with the addition of brand new LED window displays. Partner Ben Jesty comments: “We are always researching the best ways to stay ahead of our competitors and to ensure we are able to offer our clients the best possible exposure for their properties which results in faster sales and highest prices being achieved. Our new window displays really do stand out and show off our properties to anybody passing by; you really can’t miss them! Many of our properties are professionally photographed and the excellent

quality of the photos, coupled with the outstanding back-lit LED displays, promote our properties in their best possible light.With Westbourne being such a popular high street, offering an excellent range of independently owned shops, bars and restaurants, it attracts a lot of people and as a result, many of our sales are generated from people who visit our offices and have seen properties that have caught their attention in our window. Many agents these days rely purely on the internet for their enquiries. However, although the web is an extremely important selling tool, we understand the importance of passing

trade and people who still wish to discuss their requirements with an agent face to face, particularly in an area such as Westbourne. Whilst we will always embrace new ideas and technology, we also recognize the value of good, old fashioned methods of selling properties and this enables us to offer the best service to the widest demographic group. If you are considering selling, buying or letting, please contact our Westbourne Office on either 01202 767633, westbourne@winkworth.co.uk or visit us to discuss your requirements.

YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT SOMEONE WILL FALL IN LOVE WITH. So at Winkworth we make sure we spot the little things that make your home unique. Call our Westbourne team today to arrange a free market appraisal, and we’ll show you how we see things differently.

JOHN LEWIS

Fabric is a key element of each John Lewis interior trend collection. Philippa Prinsloo, design manager, home comments on its role in Expressions contemporary trend for Spring Summer 2014.

1

Expressions is a creative collection with an artistic heart expressed through bold statements made on linen and soft furnishings, where painterly patterns imperfect markings evoke a hand-created, ‘from the studio’ feel. You can see this in the brush strokes on furnished fabrics and when photo prints have been used there is a hazy effect, as though the images have been drawn with a softened lens.

The Expressions colour palette combines rich blues and purples with complementing greys and a pale pastel to create a sense of femininity. Bright pops of spearmint and lime sherbet add a refreshing contemporary twist. 34

INTERIORS

CRAFTY WAYS TO A CALM HOME Mark the start of spring by getting organised at home. Joanna Gosling shows Gabrielle Fagan three easy-peasy projects to bring order and light into your home.

1

WINE CRATE DESK

It's often the small things that can make life stressful - whether it's misplaced keys, overlooked bills or dark, dull corners that seem to attract clutter. Instead of just daydreaming about having a calm, perfect-place-for-everything home, journalist and mother-of-three Joanna Gosling decided to put her thinking cap on. She came up with a series of simple-to-follow projects, all of which now feature in her new book Home Made Simple: Stylish, Practical Makes For Living And Giving. She shows how, with a little effort and some basic DIY, you can create and furnish a well-equipped corner for sorting household finances (or enjoying hobbies), funky lights, and even conjure an attractive home for those wandering keys. 52

"I love making things for the home because it saves money, you can make nicer things than you can buy, and there's the bonus of the 'I made it' satisfaction every time you look at it," Gosling enthuses. All the materials used in her projects are inexpensive - old wine boxes are transformed into a desk, storage and a key box, for instance. "As, like most people, I don't have enough time to sit and spend hours crafting something perfectly, my mantra is 'minimum effort, maximum return'," she says. "I've worked out the quickest, simplest way to do things that are useful, decorative and bring character to rooms." Follow three of her projects for a bright, business-like corner in your home...

1

WINE CRATE DESK

"I love this desk. It's such a practical design, with its internal storage, big surface area and castors, which make it easy to move around," says Gosling. "It's a perfect work space for anything, from writing to crafting. 2

FABRIC CABLE LIGHTS

"If you can wire a plug, then you can make one of these brilliant lights very easily, and they're so versatile and useful," says Gosling. "Make the cable as long as you like and, with a couple of hooks on the ceiling, you can fix them to light up anywhere in a room. You can position them high or low, as you want."

HOW TO...

MAKE A PHOTO KEY BOX

"Giving your keys a home where you can stash and retrieve them in an instant is pretty good for stress levels," says Gosling. "This is a lovely place also to display photos and remind yourself of happy memories and, when closed, it doesn't look like a key box, which is good for security."

YOU WILL NEED:

1

• Three-bottle wine box with a sliding lid Source from wine merchants who often sell these cheaply as gift packaging, or search for them online • Emulsion or eggshell paint • Drill • Eight 1.2mm x 17mm screw hooks • Bradawl • Photos or images for the front • Spray acrylic sealant (optional); double-sided tape

WINE CRATE DESK

If you can wire a plug, then you can make one of these brilliant lights very easily...

METHOD: Remove the rope handle, if your box has one. Leave the unfinished pale wood as it is or paint. If you’re going to hang it, drill four small holes in the corners of the box for screwing it onto the wall. Mark drill points 4cm up (or down) and in from the sides. Use a pencil to mark evenly spaced dots where the screw hooks for the keys should go. Do a row of three, then a row of two, then another row of three, and stagger the hooks so that the keys don’t bunch on top of each other. Pierce each hole using a bradawl and screw in the hooks. The back of the box is thin wood, so screw the hook through until the point is just poking through the back.

2

FABRIC CABLE LIGHTS

Choose photos with a sealed finish, or use an acrylic sealant, to go on the front. Fix to lid with double-sided tape.

Q. I’m thinking about opening a small shop. What types of commercial insurance will I need?

As the topic for the first of my columns, I thought it would be best to go back to basics, and pass on a few tips on maximising your chance of achieving the sale of your home.

A. You’re right to be thinking about commercial insurance well ahead of starting to trade. There are a number of policies and covers you may need depending on the scale of your operation but here are the ones we would advise any small business:

Most of us now start our search for a new home on the internet, and it is so important to have really good photos taken by your agent, as that is the main feature that attracts the attention of the buyers. If you can, therefore, prepare your home for when the photos are taken, it will really help. I always say that ‘clean and tidy goes a long way’ but a few extra touches, like fresh flowers do show well. If you are going to move, starting to thin out contents not only helps to make the photos look good, and is quicker for the person taking photos (not having to keep moving things) but also also starts your preparation for moving day. Box and put away all that clutter and if you don’t miss it, consider getting rid of it when you move! Kerb appeal is important too for the photos and for when those prospective buyers are driving by to check out the outside, so would the front door benefit from a coat of paint, what about some flower tubs outside, and should that wonky gate be fixed? If you have extended the property, or added new windows, boiler, etc. try and make sure you have all the relevant paperwork such as planning permission, building regulations approval, FENSA certificate, cavity wall insulation certificate, etc. Your solicitor will need it when the property is being conveyed and prospective buyers might ask about this too. Where relevant, some information will be needed for commissioning the Energy Performance Certificate that is required too. Normal life carries on, but if you can keep up the tidy approach, its so much quicker to get ready for viewings too. I suppose the best advice is try and put yourself into what I think of as ‘show home mentality’, and think about how your home will appear to anyone viewing. Housebuilders try and show their new properties in their best light, and if you can do that too, it really helps. Its all common sense really, but taking some time to prepare for your home going onto the market really can pay dividends.

Employers’ Liability - this is a legal requirement if your business employs staff whether permanent or temporary, full or part time. It will cover you for claims resulting from injury to or the death of an employee, or in some cases, employee illness. Public Liability - protects you if a client or member of the public is injured, killed or their property is damaged as a result of your business operations. Professional Indemnity - if a client suffers a loss as a result of negligence or mistakes in the service you provide or advice your business has given, this insurance will cover the cost of any claims brought against you and related legal expenses. Commercial Property - should you suffer any damage to the building your business is based in or the contents inside it, as a result of disasters such as fire or flood, this insurance will cover you for any repairs or replacement. Business Interruption - can help protect your business if you are forced to temporarily stop trading due to damage to your business premises or equipment. This insurance will give you the financial help you need to get your business back on its feet. Stock insurance – if you hold any stock on your premises or in storage, this insurance will cover the cost of replacing it (at cost price) if it is damaged, destroyed or stolen. Directors & Officers Liability – this will cover you and any fellow directors against claims made against you for any actual or alleged breach of duty, trust, neglect, error or omission in the running of your business.

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.

ASK THE LETTING EXPERT Jeremy Clarke Belvoir Lettings A landlord with a small property portfolio came into our office on Fountain Way (near Waitrose) last week. He lives in Highcliffe, near the golf course and has properties in both Christchurch and Barton on Sea. He wanted to ask my opinion on the property markets in both towns and where he should purchase his next Buy to let property. Looking at Barton on Sea, the average property price can be an impressive £355,600 and the average rent is equally high at £882 per month. In Christchurch, an average property is £317,800 and the average rent is only £852 per month. The annual yield in Barton on Sea could be only 2.9% per year, compared to Christchurch where he could achieve an annual yield of nearer 3.2%. However, investing in property is not just about yield. One must also consider the increase in value of the property. Quite interestingly, property values over the last two years in Barton on Sea have risen by 5.4% whilst in Christchurch, in the same period, they rose by an impressive 8.3% (all of that being in 2013 as property values were stagnant throughout 2012 in Christchurch). However, if you look more medium term, property values since 2009 in Christchurch have risen 15.1% whilst Barton on Sea have fared slightly better at 16.3%. It just goes to show how different areas change on a year by year basis. Therefore, I would say both towns can be a good area for an investment property, but it is a decision that shouldn’t be taken lightly. These are only averages, so the yields for 2 bedroom apartments in some areas of Christchurch can achieve yields of 4.5% to 4.7% per year, so adding the capital growth, existing landlords have seen a double digit return in 2013, better than the Building Society! Over the last few months, many first time landlords have contacted me for my thoughts and opinions on what (and what not) to buy for their first time buy to let investment. As I don’t sell property I can give an objective opinion on the whole of the Christchurch, Highcliffe and Barton on Sea property markets. Some want high yields, some want no hassle, some good capital growth, some don’t know what they want! I don’t charge for my advice because if I offer you the best opinion and we build a relationship, then you might (and there is no obligation or expectation to this) just use me to manage those properties and so I have plenty of time to earn money & build a good working relationship with you by looking after your buy to let property for years to come; a property that we jointly decided met your requirements for the investment because that is what it is, an investment! So, feel free to pop into our office near Waitrose for a chat about the property market in the area.

ASK THE EXPERTS Bournecoast Property Agents Do You Have A Buy To Let Strategy In Place? The most commonly asked question is “what should investors do with their investment portfolios when they are nearing retirement?” It’s not that investors necessarily know that’s what they are asking, more that they just enquire if they should start to acquire more properties or start off-loading them. Then there’s the inevitable “How much tax will I pay?’ if they sell a certain property or “How many properties do I need to buy to live comfortably in retirement?” In the end, it all amounts to the same thing; that is, knowing how and when you want your buy-to-let investment to end. Only then will you know where to start. The reasons for entering into B2L in the first place fall broadly into three camps. It could be as a pension, for financial freedom or to pass the property on to the next generation. Des Simmons says: “There are two aspects of the first two. First, one is able to generate income from properties owned. Secondly,

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.

the capital growth can be re-invested once the properties are sold.” Leaving property to one’s children is an inheritance issue that would typically require generating capital growth or selling part of the portfolio to cover inheritance costs. Then the beneficiary can move in and take over the running costs. Most people desire a combination of capital growth and rental income from a buy-to-let property but with today’s climate that may not be as easy as in the past. Veronica Strongman added, “Properties likely to go up in value typically give a lesser yield, so you aren’t likely to generate much income unless you buy the property outright. Properties giving higher returns are usually not found in areas where properties are growing in value. “Many landlords forget that they buy property to make money and tend to stick with tenants they like - rather than take on new tenants - who will pay a higher rent. An experienced agent will ensure you are always on the best products to meet your goals, otherwise you may have to delay your exit. “It’s also advisable to undertake a bi-annual valuation of your property, along with rent and mortgage reviews, to estimate your level of equity. “If you don’t set growth or income targets, how do you know you have invested your money in the right asset? You won’t know whether you should sell up or retire now, or whether you should buy more properties or even if you should be cashing in… It’s much like running a business without a business plan. The bank wouldn’t lend you money without one and the business would end up going nowhere.”

ASK THE LETTINGS EXPERT Sharon Canning Move On Rentals

‘Bedroom tax’ loophole confirmed to close in march In January it emerged thousands of social housing tenants have been wrongly hit by the so-called ‘bedroom tax’ and are in line for a refund of their money. Under the Government changes to the welfare rules, social housing tenants who are deemed to have more rooms than they need are liable to have their housing benefit cut, removing what ministers call the “spare room subsidy”. However, a loophole in the Government’s welfare reforms means what ministers’ call the spare-room subsidy does not apply to certain renters who have lived in the same home for more than 17 years. Tenants who have occupied the same property continuously and taken housing benefit for it since 1996 should never have been included in the policy. When the Department for Work and Pensions drafted the controversial legislation it did not update housing benefit regulations dating from that year. Those affected include some who are facing eviction because of the bedroom tax- or who have been forced to move to smaller properties. Overall the controversial policy affects around 660,000 housing benefit claimants who are deemed to have one or more “spare” rooms and have between £14 and £22 a week deducted from their benefits. The ruling meant that affected tenants were able to apply to their local authority to have their claim reassessed under the correct rules and receive money backdated to April 2013 regardless of how many bedrooms are in the home, likely to be at least £640 per claimant. The Government has been accused of understating the number of tenants who have been wrongly hit by the socalled ‘bedroom tax’ changes to housing benefit. Labour said local authority data showed that, as a result of a loophole in the legislation, at least 16,000 households had wrongly had their benefit cut - while the true figure could be closer to 50,000. Work and Pensions Secretary Iain Duncan Smith has previously told MPs that between 3,000 to 5,000 tenants were thought to have been affected by the error. But after submitting Freedom of Information requests to all 346 local authorities in the UK, Labour said responses from the 140 councils which have so far replied showed that 16,450 households had been incorrectly caught. The Department for Work and Pensions said the legal loophole is now being amended and will be fixed from 3rd March 2014.

OUTDOOR LIVING

TOP 5 TIPS

FROM TODD DOORS

1

A new front door creates a striking first impression

Choose an eye-catching new entrance door to match the style and period of your house. Whether your house needs a period reproduction or a more contemporary style, a new timber door will be built to last. All timber doors can be painted or stained in the colour of your choice.

2

Replace your old door handles

Accentuate your interior doors with Todd Doors’ new range of Groël door handles. Beautifully tactile, weighty yet sleek, they come in a number of finishes to complement your door. This attention to detail is a great finishing touch!

3

Choose glazed doors if you have a dark entrance hallway

Most internal and external doors can be ordered with glazed panels which can greatly help to brighten a room. Ask for acid-etched glass if you are concerned about privacy, but still want to let the light in.

4

For something different, choose white, or black doors

If you want to keep your design simple, yet stylish, white or black doors are very effective and right on trend. Many white doors come pre-finished, or you can even order an oak door which has been deep smoked for a stunning, modern look

5

Sliding doors are great when you’re in a tight spot

If you want to partition a room, or close the door on a wc, utility or cloakroom, a pocket door system looks sleek, and ensures you can make the most of your available space.

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 132 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.

FOOD & DRINK

SHOW LEFTOVERS SOME LOVE The kitchen’s full of bits and bobs but you’ve got no idea what to do with them. Sounds familiar? TV chef Rachel Allen tells Andy Welch how to turn those leftovers into fabulous family meals

The kitchen’s full of bits and bobs but you’ve got no idea what to do with them. Sounds familiar? TV chef Rachel Allen tells Andy Welch how to turn those leftovers into fabulous family meals How often do you come home hungry after a long day, only to stare blankly into the fridge? It’s a common dilemma: cupboards full of food, yet nothing to eat. But now help is at hand. For TV chef Rachel Allen, the solution lies in knowing what to do with the random leftovers you have lying around. It’s the theme for her new Good Food series Rachel Allen’s Everyday Kitchen, and accompanying book Rachel’s Everyday Kitchen: Simple, Delicious Family Food. “It’s for that time when you look in the fridge, see a bit a bacon that needs eating up, or some leftover chicken, and can’t work out what to make,” says the Dublin-born chef. “It was my sister who gave me this idea, about making recipes for leftovers, essentially. I knew it was the right thing to do when, at 136

Christmas, we had our traditional conversation about what to do with all the leftover ham, turkey and veg.” The recipes she’s put together aren’t necessarily concerned with thrift - although if you start using your leftovers and planning meals more carefully you will automatically save money. They are more about making delicious meals with the food you already have at home. “It’s really thinking like my grandparents did,” says Allen, 41, who’s also been a regular guest on the BBC’s Saturday Kitchen. “Everything was accounted for. And yes, we do waste so much food. My mum was the best soup-maker, so there are some lovely soup recipes in the series. Whatever didn’t get eaten went back in the fridge to be turned into a soup or a casserole the following day.” There are some more creative and unexpected recipes in there too, she says - “it’s not all making shepherd’s pie from leftover lamb and so on”. “There are delicious fresh and exciting things in there too, like the chicken, fennel and orange salad, or tartiflette,

which comes from the Haute-Savoie region of France. “It’s traditionally made with roast potatoes and the Reblochon cheese they make in the area, but this is my husband Isaac’s recipe from Christmas time. He just uses whatever leftover cheese and ham there is, and spare roast potatoes.” It does sound delicious, although the idea of ‘spare’ roast potatoes sounds a little odd - those delicious, crispy carb nuggets are normally the first things to go! The show also features tips from the Ballymaloe Cookery School, where Allen trained and now helps to run with her husband and motherin-law Darina, such as making breadcrumbs for the storage cupboard from stale crusts, or using the heads of the prawns from the Mexican chilli seafood dish to create a tasty stock to use at a later date. “There’s so much flavour in the bones and heads - bits we might not want to eat and would ordinarily just throw away, so I want to get people to hold onto things like that,” says Allen,

who lives in County Cork with Isaac and their three young children. Of course, there’s also some baking involved - Allen’s Bake! series and book basked in the joys of making your own breads, cakes and pastries, two years before The Great British Bake Off hit screens in 2010, sparking a baking frenzy. “It’s extraordinary how much baking is happening,” she says. “I’ll be in an elevator or walking around town and someone will turn around and say, ‘I made your so-and-so cake for my office’s bake Friday’, or for their child’s school, so I’m very pleased about that, and that people are trying the recipes for themselves. “I’d love to say I had a gut feeling and knew the baking boom was coming, but it was by accident. “As for this series, it’s about good old-fashioned kitchen know-how and I hope as many people try out these recipes too.” On that note, here are three of said recipes to get going with.


RECIPE

Duck spring rolls with pak choi

TIP

INGREDIENTS

Serve the spring rolls with the pak choi and extra plum sauce on the side.

150g cooked duck meat, shredded 50g spring onions, trimmed and thinly shredded 100g grated carrot 2tbsp chopped coriander 3tbsp plum sauce, plus extra to serve

METHOD

Salt and ground black pepper 8 sheets of spring roll pastry (25cm) 150ml sunflower oil 500g pak choi, stems and leaves cut into 8cm lengths 25g sesame seeds, toasted 15ml sesame oil ­

In a bowl, mix together the shredded duck with the spring onions, carrot, coriander and plum sauce, seasoning with salt and pepper to taste. Lay a sheet of spring roll pastry flat on a board. Add a heaped tablespoon of the duck mixture to the pastry and spread out in a line parallel to the end closest to you, leaving a margin of about 3cm from the edge, and a gap of about 5cm on the other edges. Brush a little water on the edges, then fold in the sides, over the filling. Brush with a water again, then roll up the pastry away from you, making sure you do it quite tightly. Repeat with the remaining mixture and pastry. Place a large frying pan on a high heat and pour in the oil. When the oil’s hot, add the spring rolls - or as many as will fit comfortably in a single layer - and fry, turning to cook all sides, for eight to 10 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from the pan and drain on kitchen paper. For the pak choi, bring a large saucepan of salted water to the boil. Add the pak choi stems and cook for one to two minutes or until just tender, then stir in the leaves and drain immediately. Place in a serving dish, then sprinkle over the toasted sesame seeds and sesame oil.

RECIPE

MAKES 4 BAPS

Pulled Lamp Baps Ingredients 2-4 cloves of garlic, peeled and crushed or finely grated 2 egg yolks 1tbsp lemon juice 1tsp Dijon mustard 175ml sunflower oil 50ml olive oil 4 large white or brown rolls or baps Butter, for spreading

300g shredded cooked lamb (slow-roasted leg or shoulder is perfect) ¼ cucumber, sliced ½ red onion, peeled and thinly sliced 200g feta cheese, sliced Handful of green leaves, such as rocket or watercress

Method Place the garlic in a bowl with the egg yolks, lemon juice and mustard. Whisk until slightly frothy. In a separate jug, mix both oils then, whisking constantly, pour slowly into the egg yolk mixture in a very thin stream. Continue to add the oil, whisking all the time until it’s fully incorporated - creating a thick aioli. Season with salt and pepper to taste then set aside. Slice the rolls in half and toast them on each side, then spread with butter and a little of the aioli. Assemble the lamb, cucumber, red onion, feta and salad leaves on top of one half of each roll, then sandwich together with the other half. Cut the filled rolls in half and serve.

GIVE YOUR BATHROOM A CLEAN NEW LOOK

THIS WEEK: HOW TO RENOVATE YOUR BATHROOM. Before you change a bathroom, you need an idea of what to change it to. It’s a seemingly simple task, but one that can sometimes feel overwhelming, especially if your current room has remained unaltered for some years, and its faded tiles and shower curtains look beyond repair. Luckily, thanks to endless glossy interiors websites and magazines, there’s plenty of inspiration around for potential DIYers. So once you’ve pored over the pictures, and decided what layout and budget suits your projec, there’s no reason not to get started. First stop, unless you’re a very experienced DIYer, is to get a good plumber to do any work that involves changing the existing layout. They’ll be able to offer advice about changing the layout and what is and isn’t possible or advisable, as will bathroom/interior designers. Reconfiguring the water and heating pipes is one thing, but altering the

waste pipe for the loo is more work and expense, especially if it involves ground works or fitting a new soil stack. If you want to move the loo, it really pays to get expert advice at the planning stage. Don’t forget to work out how much space is needed to comfortably use the loo and basin and to dry off after having a shower or bath - pack in too much and you’ll soon find that your bathroom isn’t easy, practical or pleasurable to use. It’s therefore important to choose a suite that’s in proportion to the size of the room - free-standing baths and separate shower cubicles, for example, need room to breathe. If your heart is set on a free-standing bath, but you don’t have the space, a free-standing-style shower bath is a good compromise. This looks like a free-standing bath, but the tap end is flat against a wall, so you can have a shower above. As well as somewhere to wash, storage is also essential

PRODUCT OF THE WEEK CORDLESS SCREWDRIVER For a power tool like no other, check out the limited-edition Bosch IXO Swarovski (£273.18, Amazon.co.uk), a cordless screwdriver studded with Swarovski crystals. The IXO is compact, ergonomic and well designed, with comfy, rubberised grips, a built-in work light, 10 screwdriver bits, useful indicator lights and an attractive presentation box. For everyday DIY tasks, the small and nifty IXO is ideal - and for bling, it’s unbeatable.

in a bathroom. It can be difficult to fit some into a small one space, however there are clever solutions; a bath panel with a door so you can store items under the bath; a storage rack that fits around a pedestal basin, or slimline drawers that tuck under the basin bowl next to the pedestal.

Wall tiles, in particular, make a significant difference to the feeling of a bathroom. The current trend might be to tile the full walls, but if this seems too costly and difficult, just tiling around the bath and above the basin really lifts the space too.

Whatever money, and effort, you spend on your new bathroom though, you want it to stay looking good for years to come - so be sure to use a specialist kitchen and bathroom emulsion, as these paints are designed to withstand steam and mould.

Apart from the cost of a plumber (and designer if you use one) replacing a bathroom doesn’t have to be expensive. It’s not hard to find great-looking budget fixtures and fittings (bathroom suites start from around £200), and the sales are currently still on - B&Q, for example, has 25% off bathrooms (and kitchens and bedrooms) when you spend £350 or more in one go (terms and conditions apply). Of course, there is much more to a bathroom than just the suite, and sometimes updating the smaller touches, like the wall colour, flooring and lighting, can make an equally big impact on your room.

HOW-TO TIP SHOWER WORKS How do you incorporate a shower in your new bathroom inexpensively and easily? Bath-shower mixer taps, which are bath taps with a shower hose and head, are cheaper to buy and fit than a separate shower and bath taps, and do two jobs in one.


WELSHY’S WORD

We all have one thing in common. I’m not just referring to us humans. I’m talking about dogs, cats, wasps and all the other stuff. It’s the most precious resource of all. We don’t know how much we have but we assume it’s plentiful. Unfortunately, once it’s gone, it’s gone and we can never get it back. Of course I’m referring to time. I recently had a birthday, which has put me twice as far away from my birth as it has from my retirement. This made me reflect on my life and the time I have left. Then I realised I’ve no idea how much time I have left. So I should be grateful for any time I have now. Therefore I’ve come to the conclusion that, while I still have some, I need to treat my time with a little bit more respect. Up until now I frittered it away with gay abandon like it will never run out. In actual fact, I’ve been a fool thinking I own any time at all. This is not the case, time owns me but I can use it. So why not use it wisely? In short, I can invest in it. This is why this week I’ve broken down and planned my day into 5 minute chunks. I know... it sounds nuts.

Why not give your property a facelift? Absolute stone and brick use a DOFF steam cleaning system based cleaning system. It’s unlike any other steam system and can achieve temperatures 150°C. The DOFF system will remove dirt, paint, moss, algae, fungi, some graffiti, soot and smoke damage from almost any surface. 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. Unlike jet washing, DOFF uses steam rather than preasure to clean so it wont damage the surface being cleaned and also the steam kills any moss, fungi bio matter so the surface stays cleaner for much longer.

Initially I did a working version on a spreadsheet but now it’s all in a calendar app on my iPhone. So I know exactly what I should be doing at anytime of the day. You’re probably thinking I’m a spreadsheet loving, lunatic. Well you’d be right but I’m also getting more done in less time. Whereas before I used to stare with a blank mind into space trying to think about what, of the many things I’d forgotten to do. Now I know exactly what I should be forgetting, when and how much time I should spend forgetting it (obviously there are certain things that don’t need to go the spreadsheet). So I focus on the one thing I’m meant to be doing until it’s time to move on to the next thing. More often than not I finish the thing I’m meant to be doing, in the allotted time, therefore confirming Parkinson’s law: “Work expands so as to fill the time available for its completion”. I have a process, a system that works and it frees up a lot of my time. So rather than before, where I had little bits of time here and there, which I would waste doing nothing, now I have a bigger chunks of spare time to waste. Besides I try to convince myself that it’s not a waste of time if I enjoy wasting it. By the way have you worked out how old I am? Only ask because I’m so old, I’ve forgotten.

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.

Age UK Bournemouth encourages older people to act now in response to energy market reforms • Age UK Bournemouth encourages customers to act now with less than 50 days remaining to the deadline for industry roll out of Ofgem’s Retail Market Review. • 58% of over 60s in the South West are unsure whether new government initiative will bring clarity to the energy market. • While 75% are unaware of the impact the new measures will have on their energy bills . Research* conducted by Age UK has found that 58% of over 60s in the South West remain unsure whether energy market reforms called the Retail Market Review (RMR) will help their understanding of the energy market, and only 0.2%% feel that the changes will bring greater trust in providers. Peter Kendall, Trading Manager of Age UK Bournemouth, said: “The Retail Market Review is a huge change to the energy sector and in the longer term will be good for customers by simplifying energy tariffs. But there is evidently more work to be done to ensure older consumers are made aware of the changes that lie ahead. It is hugely important that those who are unsure of whether their energy tariff will change, or are concerned at what has happened to their tariff, should contact their energy supplier to ensure that they are on the best tariff for them.” For more information or help please call 01202 530575 or pop into Age UK Bournemouth.

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!

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.

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

HAZARDS AHEAD Road safety charity the IAM is offering advice on identifying driving hazards: Look further ahead so you see things earlier and have more time to take action. Think about what could happen – a side road may have a car in it, a parked lorry may have a pedestrian crossing behind it – anticipate what may develop. Use road signs and understand their message - junction signs give early notice that a driver may be trying to pull out into your path. Observe others and what they are doing. Expect and plan for their actions as they develop. Use your mirrors so that you are aware of who is behind you and what is going on – especially motorcyclists and cyclists. Hazards include bends and junctions. Expect that there may be a car emerging or a cyclist around the bend, this will allow you enough time to respond safely. IAM chief examiner Peter Rodger said: “Hazards can be anything from a tree branch to a child walking along the pavement. Anticipating what other road users might do is key to being prepared and becoming a safer driver.”

ADAM SPEICAL EDITION Vauxhall has launched a limited edition its chic urban city car, the ADAM. The ADAM Black Edition and ADAM White Edition take their design cues from a smartphone, says Vauxhall, encompassing optimal connectivity and a sleek and stylish feel. Only 250 will be available, all powered by a 1.4 litre 87hp petrol engine. The new models come with IntelliLink infotainment system and Siri Eyes Free voice control fitted as standard. They reflect typical smartphone looks in black or white, with accents in brushed aluminium effect. “The ADAM Black Edition and ADAM White Edition models resemble sophisticated smartphones on wheels,” says Duncan Aldred, Chairman and Managing Director, Vauxhall Motors. “The ADAM combines innovative technologies with countless personalisation possibilities which are not available in its segment.” ADAM drivers who have an iOS 6 – or

later – compatible iPhone can activate the Siri Eyes Free function via steering wheel controls and operate it with voice commands while keeping their hands on the wheel and their eyes on the road. Tinted rear windows and 18-inch wheels in a Twister design with matching brushed aluminium finish wheel clips

are standard, as is the black or white lacquered roof spoiler, LED daytime running lights and LED rear lights, and sports pedals. Inside the cabin, the seats, instruments and applications continue the exterior colour scheme. The ADAM Black Edition and ADAM White Edition is priced at £14,995.

ROAD TEST: JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE The Jeep Cherokee is usually billed as ‘The American Legend’ and there is no doubt that it conjures up wide open spaces and the suggestion that it can deal with any terrain it may encounter, however tough. In Grand Cherokee form, this contender is as much a luxury car as rugged off-roader, and it can perform both roles with effortless ease, writes NICK FLETCHER. Prices start at £36,995, with flagship versions up to £60,000, putting it firmly into Range Rover Sport category. The Grand Cherokee is visually imposing, appearing slightly larger than a Range Rover. In 3.0 litre diesel form, performances are similar, the Range Rover only one second quicker to 60 mph and just 1 mpg more economical. All but the 188 hp entry-level Grand Cherokee come with a 3.0 litre 247 hp diesel engine and all diesel versions get a smooth

eight-speed auto transmission, and full time four wheel drive. Higher spec models also get air suspension which helps give the car tight control and a very comfortable ride. Standard equipment is impressive on all models, with even entry versions having features such as climate control, auto wipers, USB and auxiliary inputs. The midrange Limited models add front and rear parking sensors, a rear-view camera, leather upholstery, a powered tailgate, electrically adjustable and heated front seats, and a stereo upgrade, while Limited Plus adds further kit including sat-nav. My test model was the £45,695 Overland, with extra items which included a sunroof with powered screen. Optional extras fitted - adaptive cruise control, advanced brake assist, blind spot monitoring and special paintwork - added a further £3,000.

In the cabin, there is a commanding view from the driver’s seat, with dials and controls easily seen. The central multifunction touch screen is much easier to become familiar with than most rivals I have encountered. Multi-adjustable seating is very comfortable and five adults are accommodated with ease. The boot space is extensive at 728 litres with rear seats in use. On the road., the Grand Cherokee is smooth, and unless hard revved, very quiet, with sensitive power steering giving a great sense of control. Despite its bulk, the car has a quick 0-60mph time of just 8.2 seconds. Top speed is 126 mph and fuel consumption is 37.7 mpg combined. With value for money specification, easyfeel driving and distinct visual kudos, the Grand Cherokee has an impressive CV.

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

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

THE KINGS ARMS REVIEW The Kings Hotel Christchurch, 18 Castle Street, Christchurch, Dorset BH23 1DT The King’s Arms has established itself well among the restaurants of Christchurch and beyond. This small boutique hotel and restaurant can be found just off the high street and boasts a cool and relaxed style, fantastic food overseen by chef patron Alex Aiken, and a hoard of frequently returning regulars. Being positioned on the edge of the New Forest is more than just a great location – it’s a great opportunity to source quality ingredients. This philosophy is at the core of its 15 Mile Menu which seeks to deliver delicious food at an affordable price using fresh, locally-sourced ingredients wherever possible. Using meats, vegetables and fruit from a network of farms and producers around the New Forest, plus fish and shellfish out of Mudeford Harbour, the chefs deliver a menu that is constantly adapting to what’s on offer. We started with a tossed rustic salad, combining sharp pickled vegetables with sweet oven-dried tomatoes in a pleasantly surprising twist. My partner chose confit duck hash combining rich pieces of shredded confit duck, a smooth potato mash and a fried egg to top it off, runny yolk and all. To continue we opted for fillet of seabass, delicately seared and complemented by a subtle lemon, white wine and parsley sauce. After much deliberation we also chose the slow roasted belly pork with a haricot bean stew. Whilst we crunched on crackling, this tasty and warming dish helped us ignore the weather raging outside. To finish we chose the much loved classic Dorset apple cake (comfort food at it best) served warm with custard, and the seasonal rhubarb tart with a sharpness counteracted by a sumptuous sweet ginger ice cream. With the great deal of time and effort spent sourcing local produce to create a well considered menu, you’d expect a hefty price, yet the 15 Mile Menu is available for only £15 for 2 courses. With a newly awarded Michelin Bib Gourmand for good cuisine at reasonable prices, we’d sincerely recommend experiencing the 15 Mile Menu. The relaxed environment and friendly, attentive staff will make your meal a memorable one.

152

Aside from the 15 Mile Menu, The Kings Arms boasts a range of regular offers across the week; Friday is Fizz & Chips, whilst Wednesdays are Josper Grill nights where you can taste the unique smoky taste of steaks, whole fish and burgers grilled over oaky charcoal. If you fancy a treat, seasonal events such as Comedy Nights and the ever popular Supper Clubs will give you an evening to look forward to.

Classic Parsley Sauce

Ingredients

Ingredients

2-3 kilo piece of brisket

5 litres of water 500g demerera sugar 1.5 kilo salt 1 tbs black peppercorns

1 tbs juniper berries 5 cloves 4 x bay leaves Small bunch thyme

1 x Large Bunch Curly Parsley 1 Pint Full Fat Milk ¼ Small White Onion 1 Bay Leaf Torn Small Pinch Nutmeg

2 Cloves 25g Flour 25g Butter 150ml Double Cream

Method

Method

Place all into a sauce pan and simmer for 2 minutes then allow to cool. Place the beef into the brine and weight down to ensure all the meat is covered. Leave to brine for 5 to seven days. Remove beef from the brine and soak in fresh water for 24 - 48 hours, changing the water every 12 hours.

Place the milk, bayleaf, cloves and sliced onion together with the pinch of nutmeg and season with salt and white pepper. Slowly bring the milk up to just below simmering and remove from the heat and allow to infuse for 15 minutes. Bring the milk back up to just below simmering and pass through a sieve into a jug. Rinse the saucepan under water and return to a medium heat. Melt the butter in the pan and add the flour, gently cook for 30 secs. Take a whisk and add half the milk to the butter and flour, whisking all the time until you have a smooth, thick sauce. Now add the rest of the milk and very gently simmer for 10 to 15 minutes to cook the flour out. Finish with the cream and chopped parsley, check the seasoning.

To cook Salt Beef: Chop 1 large onion, 1 large peeled carrot, 1 leek. Place the salt beef in a pot with all of the above and simmer gently until tender, usually around 2 and a half hours.

RECIPE

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

Ingredients

Method

Pancakes:

1. Preheat oven to 180C, and preheat grill to high.

1. 100g of flour  

2. Pancakes: place eggs in a mixing bowl, whisk in the flour. Add the salt and half the milk. Whisk in the butter and remaining milk. Chill in fridge 30 minutes.

Tuesday 4th March is Shrove Tuesday, or as its better known, Pancake Day which is always the day preceding Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent. Pancakes are associated with the day preceding Lent because in the past they were a way to use up rich foods such as eggs, milk, and sugar, before the fasting of the 40 days of Lent. Many people take part in Pancake races that are held in villages and towns across the United Kingdom. Most people think of making sweet pancakes, but we thought we would show you some of the lovely savoury pancakes you can make.

Pancakes with Parma Ham & Asparagus

2. 2 free-range eggs 3. large pinch of salt 4. 250ml of milk 5. 50g of butter, melted Hollandaise sauce: 1. 3 eggs, yolks 2. 250g of unsalted butter, melted 3. ½ of a lemon, juice only

EVERY FRIDAY & SATURDAY EVENING SUNDAY LUNCHTIMES FROM 1PM

SERVES 4

3. Melt a knob of butter in a non-stick frying pan. Once sizzling pour in batter to thinly cover the base. After 30 seconds lift the edge with a knife to see if it’s tinged gold. Flip over and cook other side for a few seconds, remove and repeat to make eight thin pancakes. 4. Sauce: in a saucepan over a very low heat, whisk egg yolks with a tablespoon of water, until thick and smooth. 5. Remove from heat, continue to whisk, add the melted butter. Season with salt and black pepper; sharpen with lemon juice, to taste. Keep warm.

4. salt and ground black pepper 5. 8 slices of Parma ham 6. 16 asparagus spears Other filling ideas: Spinach, Bacon & Mushroom Spinach & Ricotta

6. Boil the asparagus in salted water until tender. Once cooked, refresh in a bowl of iced water, drain. 7. To serve: place a slice of ham and three asparagus spears on top of each pancake. Roll up and place into a lightly buttered baking dish. Bake in the oven for about 20 minutes, until beginning to crisp at the edges then place the pancakes on a serving dish and coat with the hollandaise sauce. Briefly flash under the grill to finish.

SCHOOLS

BUCKHOLME TOWERS SCHOOL AND NURSERY HELPING CHILDREN STAY SAFE WHILE USING TECHNOLOGY & THE INTERNET In today’s world, technology is developing rapidly and parents often find it hard to keep up with the ever changing apps, websites, and social media that their children are intuitively viewing and interacting with. Iain Robertson, headmaster at Buckholme Towers School and Nursery, explains why it is vital for students to embrace technology, but not without structured education. “At Buckholme Towers School we embrace technology and actively teach our students how to incorporate communication devices into their lifestyle. From the age of three when children join us in nursery, Ipads, laptops and interactive whiteboards become part of their daily experience. These days there is no avoiding technology and although it can be daunting, we feel that it is best to teach children from a young age about how to use these devices safely and how they can assist them in learning. “Pupils use devices to access educational apps, a library of recommended websites for research, programmes for film making as well as software for art and design. We have a fully equipped Information and Communication Technology suite where students learn skills required by the national curriculum, such as word processing, creating Powerpoint presentations and setting up and sending emails. At Buckholme, children learn at an early age about the possible dangers and pitfalls associated with using the internet – we cannot give them 100 per cent protection, but we can equip them with the skills and understanding to deal with inappropriate material or behaviour. Pupils are also taught how to set up a username and password on their school computer and why it is important to keep their personal details a secret. “More and more devices allow access to the internet, including games consoles, mobile phones and televisions. There are a surprising number of parents who are grossly out of touch with the level of knowledge their children have, and their use of the technology available to them. Parents can obtain all the advice they need by logging on to www.saferinternet.org. uk. It is alarming to learn that many parents today do not activate restrictions on devices their children are using. These can often be applied at the click of a button. With such controls in place, parents can block access to unsuitable websites and inappropriate material. It is also important to ask grandparents or other people who may care for your child to be mindful of children using their devices and potentially coming across information that could be upsetting.”

“ON THURSDAY FEBRUARY 6 BUCKHOLME TOWERS SCHOOL AND NURSERY HOSTED A FULL DAY E-SAFETY WORKSHOP RUN BY THE DORSET POLICE SAFE SCHOOLS AND COMMUNITIES TEAM. PUPILS, TEACHERS AND PARENTS WERE TAUGHT HOW TO USE THE INTERNET SAFELY AND AVOID POTENTIALLY DANGEROUS SITUATIONS.”
