INSURANCE GROUP PLACE THEIR SUPPORT WITH GULLY Leading insurance specialists Alan & Thomas Insurance Group have revealed they have nominated Gully’s Place Trust Fund as their official charity for 2014. After a successful two years supporting and raising more than £9,000 for the Wessex Cancer Trust, it was decided that a new charity should be adopted for the Poole and Gillingham based broker, and following a vote from their 60-strong workforce, Gully’s Place was chosen as their new charity. Gully’s Place Trust Fund, registered as a Poole Hospital Charity, was set up in 2009 to support the four hundred infants, children and young people throughout Dorset who have a life-limiting or life-threatening illness. These children can have a short life

expectancy and may not survive to adulthood and may need palliative care for weeks, months or years before they approach the end of their life. As well as a physical Gully’s Place Suite, a one bedroom private suite for patients and their families located on the children’s unit at Poole Hospital, the fund comprises of parents’ support groups, as well as the provision of education and learning materials for staff and families. Speaking of the new partnership, A&T Marketing Manager Hayley Baverstock commented, “We always like to choose a charity where we know we’ll be able to make a significant contribution and make a difference. Little is known of Gully’s Place at the moment but through our support we

hope to change this and help them raise their profile, whilst at the same time raising funds for such a worthwhile cause”. “Our staff really get behind all our fundraising initiatives so I’m confident that they will give 100% effort to help support the fantastic work of Gully’s Place”. Senior Sister in charge of Gully’s Place Helen Parker is pleased to have such an enthusiastic team of fundraisers as Alan & Thomas on board and remarked how grateful Gully’s Place is for their support, “This is the first time a local business has nominated us as their official charity of the year and we are extremely appreciative of their support. Our main aim this year is to support the development of a Gully’s Place Suite at Dorset County Hos-

pital in Dorchester, similar to the one we have at Poole, and with help from local businesses like Alan & Thomas I’m confident that we’ll be able to achieve our ambitions”. Alan & Thomas have a charity committee which organises internal fundraising activities such as dress down days, bake sales, sporting challenges and an annual quiz night, which has become a highlight of their fundraising calendar.

SHOWERING EXPERIENCE

ELEGANT AND MODERN BATHROOM Elegant and Modern Bathroom - In the Axor LampShower, water and light are brought together in perfect harmony. While at first glance this looks like a lamp, on looking closer you find that it offers a one-of-a-kind showering experience. There’s an element of magic in the poetic design: a beautifully-formed water jet, which envelops the whole body, rains down from the rim of the transparent lampshade. The integrated ambient lighting creates a feel-good atmosphere throughout the entire bathroom.

Fixed Shower Heads: Wall or ceiling mounted in chrome finish.

Today, showering has become much more about an experience rather than pure functionality, with customers looking for space and easy clean options.

If you reside in a hard water area do consider the installation of a water softener and specify “rub it clean” nodules on the shower head to prevent the build -up of lime scale. 10

EcoSmart Raindance E150 Air 3 Jet Hand Shower flow rate 9 l/min at 3 bar – chrome finish – RRP £132.00 inc vat

A natural first stage is the planning of the shower; where several key issues will have to be addressed, including drainage, water pressure, ceiling height and ventilation. Once the key issues have been addressed, it is worth considering design styles, e.g. a walk in, enclosure or wet room. Typically, space will dictate which option will work best in any given room but it is always worth exploring all the options as technology and innovation are moving rapidly in the bathroom industry. Showerheads fit into two main categories Fixed Head or Hand Held

34-36 Seamoor Road, Westbourne, BH4 9AS 01202 766886 www.ripples.ltd.uk

Fixed showerheads are attached to a shower arm and mounted permanently to the wall or to the ceiling. Hand Showers are attached to the wall with flexible tubing, which makes it easier to manoeuvre water where you want it. The head can be placed in a cradle to serve as a conventional wall-mounted shower. Hand showers are ideal for washing children and pets and make cleaning the shower easier. Ceiling height - It seems obvious but this is an area often overlooked at the planning stage. The ceiling height will naturally determine the suitability of a particular type of shower head. This is especially relevant when planning a shower in an attic room or room with a sloping ceiling. Loss of head room may ultimately indicate that a hand shower on a riser rail is the only option.

How Do I Update My Kitchen Cabinets? Q: “Our kitchen cabinets need a facelift. What is the easiest and most economical way to accomplish this?” – Mrs Ryan 1. Paint Paint is going to be the best way to make the biggest change for the least investment. The unfortunate drawback is it can be a long, gruesome DIY project to take on if you decide to paint them yourself. Then again, doing this on your own time is free, so it would be inexpensive. If you decide to hire a professional to paint them, it won’t be the cheapest option, but, the investment will have a stunning outcome with a fresh feel for your kitchen. 2. New Drawer Handles and Knobs Though this one might not be the least expensive, it is certainly the fastest. Plus, some bright, sexy polished chrome hardware will give your kitchen a fresh point of view in less than an hour. If you decide to go the ‘new hardware’ route, take good measurements. Most draw pulls are available in several sizes based on how they attach to the drawer. 3. New Cabinet Fronts Now, we’re getting a bit more complicated and I would suggest calling a professional to help you with this project. You’re going to remove the existing door and draw fronts and replace them with a more modern style of cabinetry. 4. Think Outside Your Cabinets Also, keep in mind that you can update the space around your cabinets. Maybe a new backsplash, wallpaper or paint treatment? Or could that window over your sink use a fresh roman blind?

ASK THE EXPERT Dan Wilden Director Pure Town Planning What is this Community Infrastructure Levy all about? We’ve been getting an increasing number of queries about the ever confusing Community Infrastructure Levy (or CIL). So at risk of putting people off with this rather dry sounding subject, we’ll use our first in this series of columns to try and clear things up a bit. What is CIL? CIL is effectively a locally-set tax on new development to raise money to be put towards local infrastructure projects - things like parks, transport, schools and health facilities. The Levy is introduced by the local Council who decide what projects they need to fund and who set the rates. Where it is introduced it replaces any pre-existing standard financial contributions towards these kinds of things. The one exception is that CIL cannot replace contributions towards affordable housing. Where is CIL charged? The only Council currently charging CIL in Dorset is Poole however Purbeck District are set to begin within the next three months. Other Councils will follow within the next year or so. A number of Hampshire Councils are charging already. How much is CIL? The all important question! Well it depends on what you are building and where. Like many Councils, Poole are only charging residential development, everything else being zerorated. CIL is calculated on the basis of the amount of floor space created by the development. In Poole there are three residential rates: £150 per square metre for the higher value areas such as Sandbanks, Canford Cliffs and Branksome Park, £100 per sqm for the town centre and £75 per sqm elsewhere. Dealing with CIL… Here are some top tips for minimising your CIL liability: In theory residential extensions over 100m2 are applicable for CIL, however fortunately the Government have just amended the regulations to create an exemption for people who are developing a new house or extension for themselves to live in (“self-builders”). But be careful! The regulations are quite strict and unless you go about things at the right time, in the right order and provide the required paperwork the exemption could be lost.

Before

After

We love these good examples of kitchens with modern, updated painted cabinetry that are simple, straightforward spaces. While these are just fresh white cabinetry with polished chrome hardware, it still feels warm and family-friendly.

Happy Decorating! www.oneinteriordesign.com

Existing floor space on the site can be offset against the new build to reduce your CIL liability. However existing buildings can only be taken into account if they have been occupied continuously for a period of 6 months or more in the last three years. If you have any queries on how CIL might affect your proposals then do give me a call on 07984 804109 or email me: dan@puretownplanning.co.uk.

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.

JANET ELLIS, TV PRESENTER & ACTRESS My kitchen is my favourite, because it runs from the front of the house to the back, and at each end the windows look out on to gardens,” says Ellis, whose daughter is singer Sophie Ellis-Bextor. “It’s got fitted cream Ikea kitchen units, stainless steel worktops and a huge oven. There’s a large central island and running on from that, a dining table which seats 12. It’s great for family meals when Sophie and her family come over, as well as my other children. “The whole room is serene in cream shades, and an oasis compared to rest of the house, which is filled with colour and lots of art. On guard by the kitchen door is a life-size model of a Staffordshire Bull Terrier.”

OPEN HOUSE SATURDAY 15TH MARCH 11AM – 2PM Old Harry House, 11 Gervis Crescent, Lower Parkstone, Poole, BH14 0LR

Old Harry House, Lower Parkstone Price on application A substantial 3 double bedroom, contemporary detached, single storey, architect designed home. The property has great emphasis on the interaction of internal and external spaces with most principal rooms having floor to ceiling windows and doors which allow a great deal of light to flood into the property. The fixtures and fittings are all bespoke with underfloor heating and the property is overall a well-lit convivial space. The structural dividing wall between the living room and kitchen is a much talked about piece – the kitchen wall is cladded in large veneered panels of book matched walnut – a fitting tribute. The net result is a family home that responds to the elements in a most unBritish way and delights in the potential of the unexpected over the prosaic.

WELSHY’S WORD

The other day Meagan left the house, to go to shopping with clear instructions on two jobs for me to do. “Put the washing out and screw the broken door back on”. The broken door in question was the little door to our shoe cupboard. I had about 4 hours in which to do these two jobs so it seemed completely do-able. Having said that I also had to look after Monty, our 10 month old, so this was an added complication. I decided to tackle the washing first. I got it out of the washing machine and proceeded to load it onto our clothes donkey (which is a clothes horse with a dodgy leg). This is Monty’s cue for us to take part in an hilarious game in which he proceeds to pull anything off the donkey that I put on it. After trying and failing to put a pair of my soggy pants on the clothes donkey for the fifth time I decided to stop what I was doing. I looked out the conservatory window and noticed the sun temporarily winning it’s battle with the clouds. I bathed in it’s rays for a moment, realising that I haven’t seen the sun for a while. This has, after all, been the wettest winter on record. Having said that the weather is a prolific record breaker and even though I never did see it appear on the TV show alongside Roy Castle and Noris McWhirter, it does have it’s own section in the Guinness Book of World Records. I thought, “Shall I chance hanging the washing on the line outside?” My decision was made when I looked at Monty smiling widely and sensing victory, in the clothes donkey game, as he threw my wet pair of pants onto the floor. Within twenty minutes I was back inside the house weighing up the chance of me having to rush back outside and retrieve the washing amidst a predictable downpour. I stood there mulling this over for two full minutes. It’s then that I had this realisation: it will take the clothes a good few hours to dry but only a few seconds to get wet. You don’t have to be a professional risk assessor to realise that this was a bad bet on my part. Here I was in the back end of the wettest winter we’ve ever known with nothing more than hope that the weather will hold off long enough to dry our families clothes. Then I thought, “So what? If it rains it rains, there’s no point worrying about it”. Four hours later I was retrieving our dry, freshly smelling clothes as the sun was setting. I understand hanging out washing probably isn’t the greatest analogy for life but sometimes it’s worth ignoring your worries and taking the risk. Don’t take my word for it. In his Legacy Project Karl A. Pillemer P.H.D. asked 1,200 elderly people this question: When you look back over your life what do you regret? The most common answer by far was: “I regret that I worried so much about everything”. They suggested eliminating worry is the single most positive step you can make toward greater happiness.

ASK THE LETTINGS EXPERT Sharon Canning Move On Rentals

Possession claims at highest in 5 years! Landlords seeking vacant possession of their rental property through the courts are at its highest level in five years (since 2009), this is also up just under 13% since last year. The Government’s latest court statistics (end of 2013) shows a massive 25% rise in landlord claims since 2010. There were 126,351 possession claims made in the first three-quarters of 2013 compared with 101,415 for the same period in 2010. Having been working within the Industry some 23 years, I used to say I could count on one hand how many people I have evicted through the courts, unfortunately it is becoming more common. Most recently, we had to evict a tenant who was a single mum with three children under the age of 3. Despite being given six months’ notice, the tenant had still failed to find alternative accommodation, which left the landlord with no option other than eviction through the courts. What were remarkable were the tenant’s guarantor failed to help and her mother refused to put her up, even on eviction day, so she is now in a bed and breakfast in a room somewhere in Poole. Why would you put yourself through this and why would her guarantor and mother allow her to go through this? If she had willingly moved out prior to eviction, the council considers this making yourself ‘voluntarily homeless’ and will not help you, so she had no choice other than to allow herself to be evicted. If she had then moved into her mother’s house she would not be seen as a priority to be rehoused. In the meantime, the loser is the landlord who has had to pay for the court process fee, the bailiff fee and then (as is usual in these circumstances) pay to bring the property back to a standard for re-renting. What is the answer? In this case all due diligence had been done at the commencement of the tenancy, the tenant simply refused to move out because she thought she would be housed with a council property and unfortunately due to the housing shortage, she would have waited probably some 10 years through the normal channels, this way she is very likely to jump the queue! The only thing we could do was help the landlord through the court process and ensure all the paperwork was correct to enable as much as we could a smooth process through the courts, which we duly did. The judicial system, in my opinion, needs to be tweaked towards the landlord more.

ASK THE EXPERTS Bournecoast Property Agents HOLIDAY LETTING: Increased Buy-To-Let Income and Tax Advantages To many Bournemouth, Poole and Christchurch are still seen as the typical British beach resorts offering families the perfect chance to enjoy the areas golden beaches with an ice cream or two whilst staying in one of the areas wide selection of hotels. The internet revolution though has brought about the opportunity for consumers to make more of their own choices when selecting parts of their holiday such as their accommodation, activities and meals. One part of the tourism industry in the local region that is seeing noticeable growth is the area’s self-catering accommodation product as visitors seek the freedom to eat when and where they want and benefit from a diverse range of accommodation to suit a variety of requirements. The modern holiday visitor seeks a home-from-home feel which the self-catering product in Bournemouth and Poole can offer in abundance. The conurbation is growing as the new self-catering holiday destination with properties ranging from good quality budget accommodation up to the high end market supplying luxuries such as plasma TV’s, hot tubs, swimming pools, saunas, sea views and easy access to the seafront. The next questions to ask yourself as a buy-to-let investor is how can I take advantage of this market place, can I increase my rental income and can I take advantage of the HMRC tax reliefs available for furnished holiday letting? This is where we can help at Bournecoast. It is very easy for us to identify if a property is suitable for holiday letting and how to maximise your income from it, after all we have been specialising in holiday letting for over 50 years! We offer this advice free, with no obligation, and can give you an estimated holiday letting rental income and expenditure analysis for your property (and we can compare it to long term letting if necessary) to help you get the best out of your property. It is often assumed that only certain types of properties are suitable for holiday letting and only in certain areas. This assumption is sometimes correct but the conclusion of which properties and which areas should always be determined by the professionals. If in doubt please ask the professionals before writing off the idea, our self-catering holiday properties range from studio apartments up to large Manor Houses with swimming pools and stretch across the coast from Barton-On-Sea through to Sandbanks.

What are your predictions for the 2014 housing market? We have certainly seen a fast start to the year in terms of new sales agreed and a surge in local house prices. This trend started towards the end of 2013 and has continued with added momentum into 2014. Every agent I speak to is optimistic that the market is busy and homes are starting to sell faster, but unfortunately this is already leading to a lack of new properties available and those that are coming onto the market, are at noticeably higher prices than last year. The Nationwide price index showed that prices are up by £14,000 or 8.8% in a single year. As national wages have virtually stagnated , if the rises continue homes will eventually reach a stage where they start to become too expensive, but we as agents see this pattern every year, year in, year out. I would expect the current trend to continue at least in the short term, but beware a future interest rate rise which could cause further financial stress on heavily mortgaged households. With new mortgage deals as low as 1.5% in some cases it seems we might have forgotten what its like to pay 4 or 5% interest. Southbourne is a bustling high street with offices, shops and restaurants that are always busy, and a lovely seafront. All these factors draw buyers to the area, but the market can differ from area to area so your local agents are best placed to advise you. Here’s to a great 2014!

Greeny-blue teal is set to star in decor, and it’s a colour that could tempt even the most timid to break free from bland, and splash on a shade that’s a sure-fire winner. Chosen by Dulux as its colour of the year, with Britain’s Got Talent judge Alesha Dixon launching its campaign to put the shade on the map, it truly has the power to be transformative. It’s easy on the eye, and harmonises beautifully with the brown hues of natural materials, like wood and stone. “This top trend colour for 2014, which hot-off-the-fashion-catwalk is already making a mark on Hollywood’s red carpets, perfectly combines the natural harmony of green with the tranquillity of blue to symbolise balance,” says Rebecca Thompson, Dulux’s senior colour and design manager. “Deeper and more sophisticated than turquoise, teal has a

subdued richness. This influential colour has a mysterious quality which captures the grandeur of vast lakes and undiscovered forests.” It’s an alluring description and Dulux has been inspired by sea life, with the brand dubbing its interpretation Sea Urchin 1. A classic muted teal, rich in deep green and blue hues, this paint shade really is what it says on the tin. “Teal’s one of those colours that encourages even the most timid of budding interior designers to make bold choices, because even in its strongest tone, it still feels calming and comfortable,” agrees Nichola McFall, brand manager at The Fabric Box. “Unlike some green-blue tones, such as turquoise, teal transcends all seasons and suits a range of interior styles, from modern to traditional.” Tempted?

TRICKS WITH TEAL While it’s dark, definite and undoubtedly makes a statement, teal is surprisingly versatile and works well with a variety of colour combinations, says Thompson. “To create the latest look, combine with other tones of teal, green or blue to create a tone-ontone effect,” she suggests. “For an an oceanic feeling; cool, dynamic and welcoming, layer teal with indigo, denim or navy.” To warm a scheme, contrast teal with details of coral or delicate blush tones, mustard yellows and burnt orange. “This will make this beautiful colour sing, and

to add balance, use neutral tones, natural wood and crisp white paintwork.” Teal treats Wake up a wall with Sea Urchin 1 matt emulsion, £14.89 for 1 litre, from Dulux.

TURN ON TO TEAL This shade is perfectly in tune with our desire to bring the outside in and celebrate nature’s hues. “A teal sofa in a luxury fabric, like velvet, would create a stunning focal point,” says Nichola McFall at The Fabric Box. “Blend the colour with the rest of the scheme by adding teal-coloured accessories, like cushions and ornaments, which will catch the eye and give cohesion to the room.” Teal treats: Love seats, halfway in size between a sofa and a chair, making them perfect for space-starved rooms, are a brilliant idea and bang-on-trend when dressed in teal. Asda’s Chelsea Love Seat in Teal, is a snip at £395. For sheer luxury, it’s hard to beat a Velvet Tub Chair, £445, upholstered in ‘Ocean’, Oliver Bonas. So

LEGAL ADVICE

SOME SOUND ADVICE COHABITATION OF UNMARRIED COUPLES. WHERE DO YOU STAND LEGALLY? With the number of unmarried cohabiting couples increasing all the time so has the number of complex and costly legal cases if the relationship should unfortunately break down. The common perception amongst unmarried couples is that, in time, they are able to obtain the same legal rights as those of a married couple. It is only when unmarried couples separate do they become agonisingly aware that in fact the law sees them as essentially unrelated individuals, no matter how long they have been in a relationship together. So what can be done to protect your rights? What can be done to protect your investment?

DECLARATION OF TRUST The majority of disputes revolve around the property, or home, the unmarried couple share with both, or one, of the parties having invested great time, effort and money. Whilst a Court will look to offer a fair division of a property through divorce proceedings, in respect of married couples, for an unmarried couple the strict laws of property and trust laws apply. A Declaration of Trust is a 128 binding document between

the co-owners outlining what proportion of the property each owner holds. Without such a document then, in the case of sole ownership, generally the law will see the other party (‘non-owner’) as having no interest at all, no matter how long they have been living in the property or whether they have contributed financially. In the case of joint ownership it will be considered that the parties own the property in equal shares.

COHABITATION AGREEMENT A Cohabitation Agreement is an agreement between the co-owners dealing more with the day to day matters. This agreement can cover, for example, the issue of rent, mortgage payments or bills. So long as both parties obtain separate legal advice and fully disclose then such an agreement can be enforceable through the Courts.

THE CHILDREN It should be noted that different rules apply to couples who have children, whether married or not. Both parents have a legal obligation to provide for their children. It is possible for one parent to apply to Court for financial provision against the other parent in respect of their children. The Courts power is wide ranging meaning they can make an order for, but not limited to, Child Maintenance, transfer of property or lump sum payment. Putting in place an agreement can mean peace of mind, prevent disagreements in the future and avoid potentially costly legal proceedings. It is always a good idea to seek legal advice from a Family Solicitor before living together so that you can be fully aware of your rights and how to protect those rights.

ASK THE EXPERT Are you experiencing problems with your stove? We explain some of the more common reasons why and ways to overcome them...

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

Why do I have difficulty lighting my stove? In the majority of cases problems with lighting a stove can be attributed to poor preparation and the type of fuel being used. Believe it or not lighting a stove can be quite an art form. TOP TIP - TO LIGHT YOUR FIRE POSITION TWO SMALL LOGS AT THE BASE OF THE FIREBOX AND ARRANGE THE KINDLING ON TOP ‘JENGA’ STYLE. The key is to get the firebox and flue working at the correct operating temperature – a stove top or flue pipe thermometer will help you monitor this. Most importantly make sure that your wood (ideally a mixture of hardwoods such as Oak, Ash and Beech) is dry and well seasoned with a moisture content of less than 20% - invest in a moisture meter to test your fuel. Why does my stove smoke?

Newly installed stoves will often emit fumes into the room with a very unpleasant chemical odour. Don’t panic, this is the stove paint curing and should disappear after the first few fires. Occasional puffing of smoke back into the room usually points towards a downdraught problem. Nearby obstacles such as trees, buildings or adjacent roof lines can affect the airflow around the top of the chimney. To overcome this try extending the height of your chimney and / or fit an anti-downdraught cowl. If your stove continuously smokes it is unlikely to be a downdraught issue. There can be a number of possible reasons for this:• Blocked Flue passage – It is fundamental to get your chimney swept regularly. • Unlined / un-insulated flue – a lined and insulated flue will draw better than one that is not. • Poor Ventilation - stoves require a permanent supply of air to support combustion. With advanced draught proofing and double glazing modern homes are relatively air tight and can restrict this air flow. Try opening a window, if this cures the problem we suggest fitting an air vent. • Competition with another chimney or extractor – if you have an extractor fan in a nearby room or another chimney within the same property which has a stronger draw these are both likely factors for smoke being pulled back down the flue into the room. To overcome this cap unused chimneys and try fitting additional ventilation for the extractor. If your problem persists or perhaps you have a issue with your stove that wasn’t addressed please do not hesitate to contact one of our team of experts at Low Carbon Energy Centre on 01202 888561 or email info@lowcarbonenergycentre.co.uk

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.

SHED LOADS OF SPACE

THIS WEEK: THIS WEEK HOW TO CONVERT AN UNUSED SHED TO SUIT YOUR NEEDS. Garden sheds don’t have the most inspirational image: somewhere to dump unwanted DIY materials, unwashed garden tools and (but for that one sunny day of summer) unused outdoor furniture. But it’s time for an image overhaul, because with a bit of work and imagination, sheds can be a perfect solution to lack of space inside your home. As long as a garden shed is easily accessible from the house and (preferably) has electricity, a water supply and insulation, there is no reason it can’t be used as an extension of your normal rooms. Because it’s separate from the main house, it has the added bonus of being an ideal place to do quiet (or noisy) activities, with many people opting to turn a shed into a workroom/ studio, music or games room, home office, gym, or playroom/ den - pretty much whatever you need, in fact.

Fitting out your shed with everything required to make it usable and comfortable won’t necessarily be cheap, but it will undoubtedly be cheaper than moving home. You can convert an existing shed, or buy one tailored to your needs, complete with all mod-cons. Specialist companies produce offthe-shelf and bespoke designs, including much more contemporary garden buildings than traditionallooking ones, with everything included for a fully functioning room. While you may not have the budget for a garden room, which can cost thousands of pounds, a bog-standard shed is much more affordable. Sheds are usually wooden, though they can be metal, which are often easier and quicker to build, tend to be better value for money, and need very little maintenance. Wooden sheds, on the other hand, must first be treated with wood preserver (unless they’re pre-treated)

PRODUCT OF THE WEEK WDH-122H-12R 12LTR DEHUMIDIFIER For drying out rooms after a flood, leak or burst pipe, or simply for rooms prone to damp and condensation, a dehumidifier is a must. Perhaps you’ve been put off them before, thinking they are big, bulky, expensive and noisy? Well, not if you choose the right one. Screwfix’s WDH-122H-12R 12ltr Dehumidifier (£139.99) is a brilliant buy because not only is it compact, affordable and quiet, it also sucks up moisture quickly and efficiently. 134

and a garden-wood stain or paint, and then maintained with more coats from time to time to prevent the wood from rotting and warping. Metal sheds are more resistant to fire, rodents and insects than wooden ones, although they can be less able to withstand storms and high winds, are noisy when it’s raining, and are hot inside in summer and cold in winter. Wooden sheds generally look more attractive too, and because they’re made of a natural material, they blend into the garden better. It’s also easy to jazz them up - gardenwood paints have come a long way since brown was the only choice, and you can make quite a statement with colour. Stripes, for example, are brilliant for a beach-hut effect, while cream and pastel greens and blues are perfect for a pretty, but not too jarring, pop of colour.

concrete slab, but wooden sheds should come with their own floor, whereas metal sheds usually have the concrete or paving base as the floor, so it’s essential to get it the right size. It’s certainly possible to lay the base and build the shed yourself if you’re an experienced DIYer, but novices may struggle. An easier option is to get a gardener or builder to do it for you, although this can be expensive, especially with a large shed.

If you live in a flat or maisonette, or a house that’s had permitted development rights removed, planning permission is required to put up a garden shed - incredible as it might seem. For information on planning rules and building regulations for garden buildings, click on the interactive house’s shed at www.planningportal.gov.uk.

All sheds need a firm base, typically paving stones or a

HOW-TO TIP HANDRAILS Handrails for stairs tend to be expensive, but stain a cheap softwood rail (from a builder’s merchant) dark brown and add some nice metal wall brackets, and it’ll look much pricier than it was...

ASK THE EXPERT Chris Baxter Head of the Property Owners Division at Alan & Thomas Insurance Group

Q. I own both residential and commercial units, which I let but I am currently ‘between tenants’. Will this have an impact on my insurance? A. When a property becomes empty for a period of time, it’s not only lack of rental income that is the major cause for concern for owners and you’re right to be considering the insurance implications. Property can remain unoccupied for a number of reasons – awaiting or stalled renovation, lack of interest and failed businesses – and it’s these properties that can be the most problematic for owners. In order to comply with duty of care and building insurance requirements, it is important that property owners carefully manage buildings and legal issues that may surface when buildings become vacant. When a property becomes unoccupied for more than 30 days, the insurance cover often becomes incomplete and specialist unoccupied property insurance needs to be in place. It’s at these times when the level of risk becomes greater through vandalism, squatting and general security issues, so having the right insurance policy in place is critical. Taking immediate action when a building becomes vacant is the most effective way to protect a property and mitigate any risks. First and foremost, it is a requirement to inform your insurer immediately when a property becomes vacant. If you deal with a broker, they will be able to inform the insurer on your behalf and advise you on any action you need to take, as well as any changes to your policy cover. Alan & Thomas have a specialist property division that deals exclusively in insurance for both individuals and groups who own property for commercial reasons. They work with the UK’s leading insurers to offer extremely competitive premiums and have a bespoke scheme for unoccupied properties that can be tailored to the individual needs of the property and owner. For more information or a free review of your current insurance arrangements, please contact Chris Baxter on 01202 754936 or email chris.baxter@alan-thomas.co.uk

JUST ADD WATER Pull the plug on your outdated bathroom and create your own spa at home. House asks the experts for advice on creating a room that will really float your boat.

If there’s one room in the house where you should make a splash it’s the bathroom, as leisure is just as important as lathering.

A recent survey by bathroom specialists Villeroy & Boch confirms that view, dubbing the space the ‘spathroom’.

This space should double as a practical area for the daily wash-and-go, and also as a sensual home spa where we re-energise or de-stress.

It found that almost half of Britons say they consider their bathroom an important private space where they can relax, 18% believe it’s the one room in the house which can boost wellbeing, and 42% dream of a hotel-style spa washroom.

“Bathrooms are no longer regarded as utilitarian, purely functional spaces but tend to be seen as havens of relaxation, taking inspiration from hotels and spas,” says Laura McCormack, bathroom category manager at Fired Earth. “There’s an increasing demand for luxurious, eye-catching finishes, such as marble, polished nickel and hand-decorated tiles. Clever storage solutions really come into their own in the bathroom too, since unsightly clutter isn’t conducive to a spa-style environment and space tends to be at a premium.” 142

There’s no need to spend money like water to enjoy a wealth of innovative and luxury fittings and enhancements, as increasingly, these feature in collections offered by high street and online companies. They can range from touch-pad controls for state-of-the-art showers and baths, through to fibre optic lighting, built-in televisions and surround-sound music systems. Tap into expert advice to achieve a bathroom to boast about...

BRING ON THE BLING Soft shimmery gold and bronze tones will conjure gilded luxury in bathrooms this year, predicts Cheryl Gurner, creative director at Bathrooms International. “I believe minimalism, with cool white, chrome and stainless steel fittings, is waning, as people seek more cosseting spaces, particularly as we battle tough economic times,” she says. “This year, a classical influence is making an impact on contemporary settings, featuring antique gold and bronze finishes in fittings. This works well with a background colour palette of grey, silvery black, deep creams or even rich chocolate.” Less is more, she says, so subtle details will work well,

such as a border of gold to enliven a wall of plain tiles, gilded taps or a gold mirror. Tip: When planning your room, ensure you accurately measure the space and make sure the products you want will fit it. Some retailers offer a design service. Bathing beauties: Splash the cash on a majestic freestanding Copper Bateau Bath, from £4,500, Catchpole & Rye. Gild a space with a gold ceramic Hayon Organico Basin With Mirror, from £1,476, C.P. Hart. Bathrooms International gold Najem Taps, from £1,082. For something different, an Axor LampShower, from £1,236 with ceiling connector, is available in gold and black, Hansgrohe.

HOMEBASE TOP TIP Source last season bargains on the internet, or showroom models can often be picked up for reduced prices.

BLACK IS BACK “Monochrome palettes and geometric forms are a key trend for interiors and this look works to great effect in the bathroom,” says Kirsten Wain, senior design consultant at West One Bathrooms. “A traditional interpretation could be achieved by using geometric tile designs on a wall or floor. For the more adventurous, black sanitaryware and fittings make a bold, dramatic impact. If

that feels too clinical, temper the effect with sanitaryware with a monochrome pattern, and a colour palette of soft grey for walls and window blinds. Alternatively, a dash of hot colour; red, citrus lemon or green, will spice things up.” Alternatively, take a DIY approach use black paint on the exterior of a Vittone Freestanding Bath, £749, from Bathrooms.com

ADVICE

THE POWER OF VIDEO MARKETING With HOUSE Magazine now producing promotional films for our clients we talk to our very own film maker Steve about why film is invaluable when promoting your brand.

How many times did you watch a video this week? Was it a video forwarded by a colleague, or a clip a friend shared on facebook, or something daft or thought provoking that’s trending on reddit, Pinterest or YouTube? Then you already know about the power of video. Or perhaps you’re one of the very few who doesn’t regularly expose themselves to video marketing, whether it’s selfies with stars, how-to videos on the minute details of obscure hobbies, or slick trailers for new products and services. If so you are in the minority.

In addition, we have a natural tendency to respond to motion – our innate sense of self-preservation and curiosity causes us to follow any moving object with our eyes, which causes the brain to investigate the movement. As a result, movement on a screen doubles the level of attention that we give to it.

The reach and appeal of video marketing is undoubted. 46% of people surveyed said they’d be more likely to ask for information about products or services after seeing them in online videos. And that’s not just a survey statistic. The average internet user spends 88% more time on websites that feature videos. Sites with video gain two to three times more monthly visitors.

Search engines too, are ‘hardwired’, through the algorithms that govern their rankings, to respond to video. Having video on the landing page of your website can double its chances of appearing on the first page of Google and video anywhere on your website can increase search engine traffic by 150%.

There are two this powerful own psychology the other is the engines operate.

reasons for effect: our is one and way search

Humans are hard-wired to respond to faces and movement. In 1992 scientists discovered the fusiform face area (FFA) which is part of the occipital lobe of the brain dedicated to recognising faces. As a result our natural instincts to look at, and respond to, faces can be triggered by seeing people in videos – our interest is engaged and we react positively 144 to the visual stimulus.

So now you know the cold, hard facts about video marketing. But there’s another reason that it works.

For small to medium sized businesses, video is the swiftest and surest way to become recognised. Video marketing is effective because it has passion and heart, which allows any business no matter how niche, quirky or complex to express itself to customers. A one-woman outfit selling personalised iPod covers, five guys creating financial solutions, or a firm of thirty people making sofa cushions, are all just as likely to reach a huge audience as the giants of video like Apple and Virgin. All it takes is creativity, flair and a good product to bring to market. There are two things about video marketing that might surprise you. The first is the cost – high calibre video marketing is now cost effective for even the smallest enterprise. The second is that, unlike other publicity systems, video marketing has its own inbuilt distribution mechanism – with the advent of YouTube and other sharing sites, video has already become the most shared marketing method, ever.

If you’re ready to bring the dynamic potential of video marketing to your business, or talk about any print advertising call us and to explore how we can help. Call our creative team on 01202 200930 to find out more.

After a Genuine Dermaroller™ Therapy™ procedure your body will start to naturally regenerate and repair the skin, working below the surface in the dermis. This takes time as new collagen is formed, new skin cells are generated and blood supply is enhanced. It can take up to 6 weeks before visible signs of regeneration and repair are seen and the process will continue over the following months, providing you with a natural and long lasting enhancement.

We’ll then criss-cross the Dermaroller® working over the area of skin to be treated. Dermaroller® can be applied to any type of skin, making this procedure suitable to all ethnicities and types of skin.

Will skin needling hurt? Skin needling is not a pampering treatment it is a treatment to get results, everything will be done to ensure you are as comfortable as possible during your treatment.

And after? You may experience some redness and very mild swelling after the treatment (a little like sunburn), but within 8 hours this will subside and you’ll begin to notice the benefits. For more information about skin needling and Dermaroller® in Bournemouth, contact Austin Brewer.

Age UK Bournemouth reminds older drivers of the importance of car insurance at new registration time

He established his own practice in facial aesthetics seven years ago in what is an increasingly booming market.

*Wrinkle smoothing injections *Fillers *Face peels *Dermaroller

*Hyperhidrosis (excessive perspiring)

This April, as the new ‘14’*Cryopen registration (removal of plates age spots, appear skin tags) on the roads, it is an ideal time for drivers to review their insurance policy and 25/07/2012 15:18 check they are being offered a policy that meets their needs. 07/03/2013 16:37

Peter Kendall, Trading Manager of Age UK Bournemouth, said: “When buying insurance for a brand new car, or even for your current one, it is essential to always shop around before committing to a provider. Securing a car insurance policy that meets your needs, and not just the cheapest deal, is important. You may wish to avoid paying for features that you don’t need and remember to always read your policy in depth, check for any hidden charges, cancellation fees or exceptions that could invalidate a claim.

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

INTERVIEW

Five minutes with... Interior design guru Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen first burst onto our screens in 1996 on BBC1's Changing Rooms, winning the nation over with his flamboyant personality and daring ideas. Now, he talks about his upcoming work for the Ideal Home Show, his hatred of beige, and why he's feeling old but still bendy...

IS STRICTLY COME DANCING ON THE CARDS FOR YOU? I don’t want to do Strictly because I don’t want to dance with anyone other than my wife. For me, dancing is something intimate and romantic and it’s a statement, so I would feel really weird dancing with somebody other than Mrs Llewelyn-Bowen.

TELL US A BIT ABOUT THE IDEAL HOME SHOW? It’s been going for well over a hundred years, and I was incredibly flattered to get involved because it is iconic. It’s been the great barometer for us in terms of what the British home looks like on a domestic, everyday you-andme level, I’m not talking about the haute couture end. WHAT TRENDS WILL YOU BE ADVISING PEOPLE ON THERE? Let’s stop mucking around, and let’s have fun with our homes. Let’s bring sex back into the British home. Let’s stop seeing it as something ‘oatmeal’ and the perfect environment for a lukewarm cup of tea, and let’s start mounting La Traviata in the nation’s bedrooms.

150

Where it goes wrong, as far as I’m concerned, is when it goes beige inside. One of the things we’re very prone to as a nation is getting very, very lazy about interior design. It’s that safety blanket; it’s that nursery food that we fall back on. It’s that ugly, low selfesteem jumper we put on when we feel we’re not worth dressing up for. That’s my big struggle - to get everyone to understand how lucky they are to have a home and therefore how important it is to live up to that responsibility by really celebrating where you live, by making it as individualistic, as sexy, as eccentric as it possibly can be.

Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen WHERE DO YOU TAKE YOUR INSPIRATION FROM? Largely, gin! But one of the great springboards is history, because you’ve got a thousand years of other people’s experience to move forward on. I will look at various periods and eras which I think have a sense of synchronicity with what’s going on now. But it’s not about creating Disneyland - it’s about just using elements to put into your particular mix and create your own flavoured interpretation of your style. DOES CHANGING ROOMS SEEM A VERY LONG TIME AGO NOW? I’m immensely proud of Changing Rooms, immensely proud of what we did and how much fun it was - there was a point where a decorating show was as big as a soap opera. People are now looking around where they live and thinking, ‘I wish someone would help us a bit, reinvigorate us in the way that Changing Rooms did’. 1996 was always seen as the big change year, and that is

really frightening. I’m so old. It’s my 25th wedding anniversary this year, I’m 50 next year, and Changing Rooms will have been 20 years ago. I’m still quite bendy, though! YES, YOU RECENTLY TOOK PART IN ITV’S STEPPING OUT. DID YOU ENJOY THAT? Oh, I loved every minute of it, apart from the performing which I hated, weirdly. Being with Jackie for seven weeks was great fun actually. Doing something together, I loved learning the dances, loved the team, and absolutely loved the set - but there we were, last, because the judges hated us! Yet the minute the public were allowed to vote, we were second - and I attribute that entirely to my wife, to be honest. People just threw themselves at this icon of glamour. She was between these incredible supermodels and beautiful dancers, [in her] late 40s, a long way from being a size zero, but by thunder, she can do a can-can!

YOU ONCE APPEARED IN THE LEAGUE OF GENTLEMEN. WOULD YOU DO SOMETHING LIKE THAT AGAIN? Yes, well they do come in every now and then. I’ve just had a little part in a film called Real Lives with Anthony Head. It is funny what you get asked to do. One of the things that I really like about my life is that I can just dabble. It’s not about the money. I’m really lucky that we’ve got a successful business now which is global, so I can do things just because I fancy it. WHAT’S COMING UP NEXT? We start filming The Apartment 3 in Asia. I think we’re looking to film that in Thailand, which will be really, really cool. And then one of my big, big things - I’m making a series for Radio 4 about colour, it’s going to be interesting because it is going to force the listeners to really visualise what I’m talking about. And like I said, it’s also our 25th wedding anniversary, so that’s going to be a focus of jollification. Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen is one of the ambassadors of this year’s Ideal Home Show, March 14-30, Earl’s Court, London. Tickets now available. For more information visit www.idealhomeshow.co.uk

ASK THE EXPERT Tony Peters Planit Mortgages Your local mortgage adviser How the MMR will affect your ability to get a mortgage For most people, MMR conjures up thought of inoculating toddlers against Mumps, Measles and Rubella. This MMR is different. It is the upcoming Mortgage Market Review, a result of the EU mortgage directive and it takes effect at the end of this April.

How will it affect lending? The emphasis in future will be on affordability and antimoney laundering. No longer will there be income multiples i.e. 4 x salary. Instead the lender will have to prove that YOU can afford the mortgage. They will look at household income, regular outgoings, the number of dependents you have and will have to take them into consideration. The lender will then have to analyse the mortgage you are being offered and calculate what the payments will be at their current Standard Variable Rate plus 2%. As some lenders SVRs are as high as 5.99%, it means that your affordability won’t be calculated on the low interest rate you are getting (which could be as low as 1.70%) but at a rate as high as 7.99%.

When is an affordable mortgage unaffordable? The short answer could well be – after MMR takes effect. It is entirely possible that you have been paying a mortgage comfortably for years and when you remortgage for a lower rate, you could be declined as according to the lender’s calculations, your new deal is unaffordable! This is happening already to some degree and could depress the remortgage market when it takes effect at the end of April. If you are thinking of remortgaging or considering buying a property in the near future then the best advice would be to do it now before the MMR rules change the way lenders look at applications.

Money laundering I doubt if any of you reading this are involved in any illegal activities but it doesn’t stop you being the focus of antimoney laundering rules. This will have an impact on the selfemployed more than employees. In addition to checking the source of finance, lenders will be obliged to make sure you have declared your income to HMRC and can only take that declared income into consideration. Although it will be more difficult to obtain a mortgage for some self-employed, there are lenders out there who are more sympathetic. Even they will find their powers of discretion tested and will have to take measures to confirm all sources of income. The reality is that no-one knows to what degree the MMR will affect applications but one thing is for sure – if bureaucrats are involved, then it is going to cause more work and headaches for the rest of us. Next time I will tell you how you can borrow up to 20% of the value of any property and not make ANY interest payments at all.

COOK WITH THE COTTONWOOD

RECIPE

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

Ingredients

Method

1. 3 middle necks of lamb, filleted and boned, (total 950g)

1. The stock - Put the lamb bones in a large saucepan with the carrot, onion, celery, herbs, peppercorns and 1 tsp salt. Pour in 3 litres water. Bring to the boil and simmer uncovered for 2 hours.

It’s St Patricks Day – Every year on March 17th, the Irish and the Irish-at-heart across the globe celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. What began as a religious feast day for the patron saint of Ireland has become an international festival celebrating Irish culture with parades, dancing, special foods and people wearing a lot of green. Dublin has the biggest festival of them all but in the U.S. you’ll find the best parades in Boston and New York. In Chicago the River gets transformed from its usual murky green into the brightest, greenest river you’ve ever seen. To get you in the spirit why not have a go at our traditional Irish stew for your own bit of Irish culture.

Traditional Irish Stew

2. 650g floury potatoes (King Edward) 3. 650g waxy potatoes (Desirée) 4. 1kg of carrots 5. 2 onions 6. ½ tsp of fresh thyme leaves 7. Chives and parsley, to garnish For the stock 1. bones of the lamb 2. 1 onion, large carrot & ½ celery stick quartered 3. 1 bay leaf 4. 2 sprigs of thyme, 1 sprig parsley 5. 6 crushed black peppercorns 6. Salt for seasoning

FRIDAY & SATURDAY EVENING SUNDAYS FROM 1PM

SERVES 6

2. Strain stock through a fine sieve to remove the bones and vegetables, return to the pan. Boil until reduced to about 1.3 litres. (You can make the stock the day before and keep it in the fridge covered) 3. The stew - Cut the lamb into large chunks. Peel the potatoes (keeping both types separate) and cut into pieces a similar size to the meat. Put the two types in separate bowls of water to keep them white. Peel the carrots and cut into slightly smaller pieces. Slice the onions into thick rings. 4. Put the lamb in a large, clean saucepan. Pour in the stock and bring to the boil, skimming off all the impurities from the surface. Reduce the heat, cover and simmer gently for 10 minutes. 5. Add the floury potatoes, carrots and onions. Season generously and simmer for a further 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. 6. Add the waxy potatoes and thyme. Simmer for 15-20 minutes until the lamb is tender. Take off the heat, cover (don’t stir) and leave for 15 minutes. Garnish and serve.

SCHOOLS

BUCKHOLME TOWERS SCHOOL AND NURSERY EDUCATING PUPILS ABOUT NUTRITION AND EXERCISE

Iain Robertson, headmaster at Buckholme Towers School and Nursery discusses why educating students on nutrition and exercise is essential to ensure they form good habits to take them into adulthood. “These days we are constantly bombarded with shocking statistics in the media about childhood obesity. At Buckholme we were awarded ‘Healthy Schools Status’ and we firmly believe that if children are taught about nutrition and exercise in the early years, they will learn that they can eat and drink foods that they love, as long as they eat in moderation and keep active. “We start teaching pupils about good and bad foods when they join us in nursery. Children aged two years and nine months to four learn about foods of the world, write recipes for balanced meals and have practical cooking lessons making fruit smoothies and healthy snacks.

“AT BUCKHOLME WE WERE AWARDED ‘HEALTHY SCHOOLS STATUS’ AND WE FIRMLY BELIEVE THAT IF CHILDREN ARE TAUGHT ABOUT NUTRITION AND EXERCISE IN THE EARLY YEARS, THEY WILL LEARN THAT THEY CAN EAT AND DRINK FOODS THAT THEY LOVE, AS LONG AS THEY EAT IN MODERATION AND KEEP ACTIVE”

WORKING WITH PARENTS “When pupils join the school, parents have the option to give their students packed lunches or to take the school lunch option which is provided by local restaurant La Cruz. If children have the school lunch option they have the choice of filling and nutritious meals such as cottage pie, pasta and soups. We regularly report back to parents about their child’s eating habits if they are eating too little, too much, or they don’t like certain foods. For those who bring in their own lunch, meals are monitored to make sure the boxes contain the right amount of food and it is balanced. Any issues are reported back to the parents straight away.

“Keeping healthy is not just about the foods we eat, we encourage our students to keep as active as possible and participate in the wide range of sports on offer, from tennis to rugby and sailing. Physical activities are included at Buckholme as part of the national curriculum and we also offer after school activities to appeal to pupils of different ages and abilities. Year on year we aim to increase the amount of sports on offer and from September we will be incorporating even more activities into the curriculum.

DEVELOPING GOOD HABITS FROM AN EARLY AGE “While it is important to instil good habits into students at a young age, we are also very aware that children are more easily influenced at a younger age; with this in mind we recognise the importance of helping children to develop positive feelings about their bodies and maintaining high levels of self-esteem. “Overall it is important to remember that keeping pupils healthy can have a positive effect on how successful they are in school – healthy minds need healthy bodies! We feel it is vital to work closely with parents to ensure their child is given the correct messages about maintain an active and healthy lifestyle, so that they have an increased chance of taking this knowledge and these habits into adulthood.” 162
