INSURANCE GROUP SECURES DORSET’S KEN PARKE PLANNING WELCOME OLDEST FAMILY RUN MOTOR TRADER NEW PLANNING CONSULTANT Leading insurance specialists Alan & Thomas Insurance Group are celebrating after having secured the commercial insurance programme for Bournemouth and Poole used car dealership Norman Motors for yet another year. Having looked after the two site dealership and service centre since 1999 with just a two year break, head of the motor trade division at Alan & Thomas Mark Hasell has struck up an excellent working relationship with owner David Norman. “We work very closely throughout the year with David and his team helping them with risk management and any mid-term changes needed to the insurance programme. Being within a ten minute drive of their Wallisdown Road site and practically neighbours on Bournemouth Road, if there are ever any issues, we have always been able to meet faceto-face to reach a solution”. David Norman, the third generation family member to own

the business which has been trading for over sixty years and is the oldest family-run motor trade business in Dorset, is equally pleased with the service from Alan & Thomas, “The service from A&T has been exemplary. Not only do they carry out a full review each year at renewal to ensure we’re covered on the right basis and are paying the correct premium but Mark and his team are always on hand when we have a query. I very much value their personal approach and first class service”. Alan & Thomas have a specialist motor trade division based at their Poole head office, which is staffed by qualified insurance personnel who have a keen interest and second-tonone knowledge of the motor trade. The team looks after the insurance arrangements for a wide range of motor traders from mobile mechanics, MOT and body shops, used car dealers to multi-franchise main dealerships.

PROPERTY FRANCHISE EXPERTS CONTINUE TO EXPAND Platinum Property Partners (PPP), the fastest growing premium franchise in the UK, is delighted to announce they have now purchased their own office premises in Bournemouth to accommodate their growing team. Launched in 2007, PPP is a highly respected and established property investment business that enables its partners to build a sustainable, profitable and life changing property portfolio. Having successfully recruited more than 200 partners to date, its Head Office team has been steadily expanding to support the business to the point where its former leased premises at Lansdowne was no longer fit for purpose. The new town centre building on Hinton Road, previously owned by Serviced Office Group, houses PPP employees on the top floor and provides modern office and meeting space for rent on the remaining three storeys, ideal for small to medium sized businesses. Steve Bolton, PPP Founder and Chairman, said: “Our business is built on the philosophy that owning property that maximises rental income is key to securing lifelong financial security, so we’ve been waiting for the right opportunity to purchase the right property for PPP. “Platinum House will enhance the company’s asset base, provide a more comfortable home for our ever-growing team as well as offer other local businesses the opportunity to rent premium commercial facilities at flexible, all-inclusive rates.” For more information on the Platinum Property Partners franchise, or if you are looking for office space in the heart or Bournemouth, please call: 01202 201000.

MARKET ANALYSIS

MARKET ANALYSIS Quarter 1 2014 Update (January - March)

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

MARKET ANALYSIS

QUARTER 1 2014 UPDATE In our first quarterly update for the year we examine the key trends impacting on the property market and how we feel these will shape the rest of 2014. The year has kicked off with a strong surge of sales. Sellers who failed to sell in the autumn have repriced their properties and relaunched them to the market. They have been able to capitalise on the swell of buyers who are looking for properties in response to the optimistic media reports of the upward growth in the property marketplace, the continuing low interest rates and the Help to Buy Scheme (HBS). As a result, we’ve seen that many owners who failed to sell previously in 2013 have quickly found a buyer this year. However, March has brought somewhat greyer clouds. Locally, we have seen that after such a fervent kick-off things are turning quieter again so it is not clear how sustained the recent growth is going to be. This is echoed by The Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors, who are now reporting a slowing in the rate at which demand

is increasing. There could be several explanations for this. January and February brought wet and wild weather. Many buyers have had to postpone their search and instead undertake repairs to their homes and the tidying of their gardens. So this could be a short-term, and we hope, exceptional explanation for the temporary shrinkage of sellers and buyers. Yet, there are also the housing market national commentators saying that the pent up demand from 2013, which fuelled the powerful start to the year outside of London could be running out of steam. This requires a closer reading, as it represents the first incidences of negative press for some time. Our intelligence bears out that our local market is performing differently from Greater London and the Home Counties. London and the surrounding environs have an acute shortage of supply, both in prime and mainstream homes and this has a significant bearing on prices, hence the ongoing reports of a housing boom. Whereas here there continues to be more

choice for buyers, so whilst there is evidence that prices are rising, they are doing so less sharply. For those owners keen to sell it remains ever vital to price sensibly. We are closely examining our data week by week, and watching the performance of others around us to determine if the March slow-down is a temporary blip, or a sign of a more cautious upward trend that will experience fluctuations in response to micro and macro factors. The latter would actually make for a more sustained recovery in the housing market, rather than fuelling the risk of a short term bubble that will inevitably burst. On balance, we believe the outlook is still very positive, especially when compared to pre-March 2013. If you would like us to consider the specific suitability and sellability of your home then please call Capital and Coastal 01202 217091. Open 24 hours a day 7 days a week. Previous market updates are available at capitalandcoastal. co.uk/updates

KEY DRIVERS INTEREST RATES Canny Mark Carney, Bank of England governor, has indicated that interest rates will increase to 2.5% within three years. He may just be a smart talker trying to cool the heated market in London or a man of action. He certainly intends to do what he can to calm George Osbourne’s Help to Buy hand outs.

HOUSING SUPPLY More newly built housing stock will come to the market as developers complete the construction of schemes put on hold during the economic crisis and restarted in 2013. Expect a surge in high maintenance homes up for sale after the winter storms.

GOVERNMENT SCHEMES George Osbourne has further fuelled the housing market with a promise to continue the Help to Buy scheme until 2020.

2020

EXPECTED PERFORMANCE OF DIFFERENT HOME TYPES SMALL AND MEDIUM HOUSES Very strong demand and short supply. Prices will rise quickest in this part of the market.

LARGE FAMILY HOUSES Prices increasing, but over supply may be an issue towards the summer. Accurate pricing is critical to achieving a timely sale.

VERY LARGE AND PRIME PROPERTY Improving demand, but oversupply of new builds and 7% stamp duty will hold back the chance of significant price growth over the short-term.

PREMIUM APARTMENTS Prices will rise but they will underperform due to growing supply of new builds.

BUY TO LET INVESTMENTS Very good demand that is likely to strengthen through 2014 as investors look for returns on their money and as changes in pension legislation bed down. Yields though will remain static and then start to fall because of oversupply of rental properties.

MONEY SUPPLY EXPECT GREATER

DELAYS IN PROCESSING

MORTAGES

Mortgage market review (MMR) legislation kicks in April 2014. Expect greater delays in processing mortgages in the short term as lenders streamline their new systems for processing more stringent borrowing criteria.

SPRING HAS SPRUNG SOMERS HOUSE STYLE We’re finally leaving winter behind, yet our homes can look as though they’re still suffering from its effects. Thankfully, a few changes, small but significant, can spruce things up. It’s all too easy to get used to cluttered surfaces, especially in the kitchen, so make a clean sweep and store away all but the essentials and allow attractive items, like quirky mismatched crockery centre stage. Collect decorative items in one place, deciding which work well together, and then redistribute them in different arrangements throughout the house. Mix-match heights, sizes, textures and colours to make them visually appealing and they’ll look new and different. Finally, plump up sofa cushions, fling windows wide open for at least 30 minutes a day, and drape a colourful cloth over a table and make fruit or floral arrangements a centrepiece.

NAVY AND WHITE Beach, Nautical, Nantucket and French Riviera styles are everywhere right now. Mixtures of wood, shells, blue and white cushions and lanterns will bring the sunshine from outside into your home. Driftwood lamps are in high demand at the moment. Use nautical trimmings for cushions, leading edges and lampshades. There are vast ranges available to day and Samuels and Sons hit the spot for these styles. “A glass vase filled with zesty, colourful lemons and limes whose aroma will scent the room is a stylist’s favourite trick,” Another idea is to fill with a Riviera Maison hurricane lamp for an effective display. “Sheer curtains allow sunlight to filter evenly through a room, and if you add layers of textiles in different patterns and materials you can give your space a textured, layered look” Like jewellery, curtain finials complete your window dressing and make it even more elegant, playful and personal. The best part is that you can easily change them whenever you feel you want some variation. Add some beautiful tiebacks and the look will be complete. Springtime is all about giving interiors an uplift. Breathe new life into a jaded dining and living areas by introducing a few key accessories in bold, zesty colours. Update your look with brightly upholstered chairs or new chair cushions, and a statement rug to zone the area. This is springs trending look. The colour blue can create a bright,bold and striking statement room, or a tranquil and soothing escape.

ASK THE EXPERT Nykke x

Matt Annen Director Pure Town Planning What can I do to my listed building without consent?

Is It Okay to Place My Bed on an Angle? Q: “Can my bed be on an angle? I have no space otherwise. How will it look best?” – Mrs Deane Mrs Deane, that’s a great question! Whenever it comes to furniture layout in my own projects, my general rule is that the simplest answer is usually always the best. Floating a bed at an angle can be especially challenging because it actually takes up more floor space than one that is placed flat against a wall. My advice is to try setting it up flat against the wall first, but, if the room truly works best when it’s placed at an angle, then that is most likely the best decision. I might angle a bed in a large bedroom, but, I would be very cautious about using that idea in a smaller space. We love this cosy, comfortable bedroom that shows with a little creativity, you can work a bed into even the smallest of spaces.

The safest approach is not to do anything without first obtaining specific advice! Any works which are deemed to affect the character of a listed building as a building of special architectural or historic interest require Listed Building Consent. Carrying out any such works without consent is a criminal offence and individuals can be prosecuted. A true listed building, not a “Locally Listed Building”, will be one of three grades depending upon importance: Grade I for buildings of the highest significance, Grade II* and Grade II. Most listed building owners are likely to have a Grade II building as these make up 92% of all listed buildings. It’s now easy to find out online if a building is listed – find a link on the Intelligence page of our website puretownplanning.co.uk. As all listed buildings are unique, what is actually covered by a listing varies. The protection usually covers the whole building, inside and out, and includes any attached structures including later extensions or additions. It also can include any permanently attached fixtures such as a chandelier or a shop awning. Finally be wary of buildings within the curtilage of the listed building – anything pre-1948 is protected as if it itself was listed. Seemingly minor works to a listed building are quite likely to require consent - such as installing an internal wall or painting over brickwork. It is best to always seek advice. It may sometimes seem like listed buildings are best avoided but often they have fantastic potential and just because consent is required doesn’t mean it won’t be given! We have recently secured permission for works to the upper floors of the Grade II Listed Royal Arcade in Boscombe which have been vacant for years. The works included the addition of an external cast iron Victorian-style gantry and the conversion of the interior into 28 self-contained apartments. Pure Town Planning undertook extensive pre-application consultations on this project with Planning, Conservation, Building and Highways Officers with regard to the internal and external alterations; the number and type of dwellings proposed and access arrangements. During the application, through negotiations and justification, we were able to convince all involved that the scheme would sensitively restore and revitalise the dilapidated first and second floors of the Listed Royal Arcade and help return this building back to its former glory!

Happy Decorating! www.oneinteriordesign.com 56

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.

58

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 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.

me all the relevant costs? When purchasing any property it pays to do all you due diligence first before spending money on surveys and solicitors. In the case of leasehold properties the agent involved should at the very least have the current lease term remaining and the associated costs involved in the day to day running ie. ground rent, service charges etc. They may not have the cost of a lease extension and you will have to ask the current owner to apply for a costing estimate from the freeholder. When buying a leasehold property you must consider the length of the current lease and how long you may be in residence. For example if the current lease is 85 years and you wish to stay there say 5 years, then you would be selling the property with an 80 term decreases so beware!

A useful site is www.lease-advice.org which has a lease extension calculator based on the current RICS formula. Budget for a future lease extension within your costing. Any properties being sold with a low lease should be price adjusted accordingly.   A good agent will fully advise you of the lease length and the costs of extending the lease before you agree a sale so they’ll be no nasty suprises along the way.  If in doubt ask the expert!!

ASK THE EXPERT Steve Isaacs, Director Baileys Estate Agents What should I look for in My Agent When asked to value a property for a prospective Vendor we always ask what is important to that particular client. Essentially, most Vendors want an honest appraisal from a professional agent who is transparent about his fees and services. Some of the things to consider when choosing your agent include; fees, terms of contract, quality and diversity of marketing and overall professional service. REMEMBER YOU ARE INTERVIEWING THE AGENT FOR THE POSITION OF WORKING FOR YOU IN SELLING YOUR HOME

Fees and Marketing In general, a sole agency fee of between 1% and 1.25% plus VAT is reasonable for the majority of properties. At the lower end of the market you may expect a higher percentage fee, as there are many fixed costs an agent will incur. However, there is no need to pay any upfront fees to a traditional high street estate agent. Some will suggest professional photography is required or additional marketing costs. In reality, it is just an agent trying to cover his costs should your property not sell through them. In this digital age, we would expect an agent to have invested in quality equipment and understand how to use it to its best potential. One major benefit of the internet is that it has levelled the playing field for all agents. With approximately 95% of all searches starting online, providing you have good quality photos, an agent can market your property effectively, without the need to charge high fees of 1.5% or more on sole agency.

Contract and Service Remember, the agent you choose should be working in your best interests. The reputable and good quality agents are confident in their own ability and service levels. They believe a vendor will remain loyal as long as the agent provides a good service and carries out a professional job. Therefore, these agents will not need to tie you into a long contract and typically offer a 2 to 4 week contract term. Any longer than a month represents an agent working in their own interests and not yours. Always check the length of the contract, and remember, once committed to a long contract, you will not be able to get out of it, no matter what level of service you receive!    

Be positive! Sell your home by calling Baileys today on 01202 893939 or 01202 525400

HOUSE & SON NEWS... LIGHTING UP THE LANSDOWNE Not only are the evenings getting lighter across town but the Lansdowne is looking especially bright this spring thanks to the installation of a new illuminated window display at the office of local independent estate agent House & Son. The new LED display panels are constantly backlit and mean up to 100 properties can be displayed for sale or to let at any one time. Director Neil Wren is particularly enthusiastic about the changes,

commenting: “We are delighted with the results of our new illuminated window display, which really make our properties stand out both day and night. This coincides with a particularly active and vibrant property sales market with increased confidence amongst buyers.” House & Son are reporting a strong upturn in the sales market across all types of property from luxury sea view apartments to family homes and buy to let investments. The company has

ASK THE EXPERT Matt Gowing Insurance Adviser with Alan & Thomas Insurance Group Q. What is D&O insurance? A. D&O insurance stands for Directors & Officers Liability insurance or, as it’s sometimes known, Management Liability Insurance but what exactly does it cover and do you need it?

Age UK Bournemouth reminds older drivers of the importance of car insurance at new registration time This April, as the new ‘14’ registration plates appear on the roads, it is an ideal time for drivers to review their insurance policy and check they are being offered a policy that meets their needs. 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. Also watch out for providers that automatically renew car insurance policies each year and charge for cancellation of them. Older drivers should also check there is no upper age limit on a policy.” Age UK Car Insurance, provided by Ageas Insurance Limited, is designed to meet the needs of those in later life. It has no upper age limit, no hidden fees for policy changes. It can be paid by monthly instalment at no extra cost 0% APR Representative. For further information about Age UK Car Insurance, provided by Ageas Insurance Limited, please call us on 01202 530575 or pop into Age UK Bournemouth, 700 Wimborne Road, Winton, Bournemouth, Dorset, BH9 2EG.

Running a company is undoubtedly a risky business and with litigation on the increase, directors, officers and senior managers cannot afford to leave themselves vulnerable and unprotected. Actions or decisions you make on the company’s behalf can leave you exposed to compensation claims, investigations and prosecutions. Without any appropriate insurance cover, you would have to finance your defence from your own resources including the settlement of any successful claim, which could put at risk your home and potentially lead to financial ruin. To give you an idea of when this insurance would be invoked, here are some examples of claims covered by a Directors & Officers Liability Insurance policy*: • When two bakery employees were killed whilst attempting to repair machinery, the MD and several managers were prosecuted for breach of Health & Safety legislation. Their D&O liability insurance policy covered legal costs of £890,000. • When a carpet wholesale warehouse burnt down, the Managing Director was required to attend a hearing with the Chief Fire Officer to investigate the source of the fire. The D&O liability insurance policy paid for legal costs of £40,000. • When an employee was immediately sacked for racially abusing and punching a colleague, they brought an unfair dismissal claim against the employer. The employer’s legal costs were covered by a D&O liability insurance policy. *The above claims examples are real claims obtained from AIG / Chartis Insurance via Brokerbility Ltd. They are for illustrative purposes only and are not a guarantee of cover, which is always determined on a case-by-case basis in accordance with policy terms and conditions.

“We are so glad you put a postcard through the door of the house we needed to let. You produced ideal tenants, a lovely family who agreed to take the house at once. MK Estates provided a very professional service with charming staff who were lovely to work with.”

“MK Estates were a delight to work with to find tenants for my flat. There service was quick and efficient and I had new tenants in less than a week of instructing them. I would highly recommend their services to anyone. Great team.”

February 2014- L and G Marsden

March 2014- Matthew Piovan- Knyveton Road- Operations Manager at La Piccola Italia, The Print Room, Ink Bar and Westbeach

“Dear all in the lettings dept. Just a quick note to thank you all for the fast and efficient service you offered when we were trying to let our flat. After 3 months on other agents books we offered you the contract (after a referral from our son who had also used your services ) and within 48 hours we’d had two viewings and an an acceptance by the 2nd couple who have turned out to be high quality tenant’s. Well done all, we shall certainly be using your services again. Kind regards

“From the first point of contact with MK Estates we felt that Mark and the team really listened to our needs with regard to selling our property. The service they have provided was excellent and led to us accepting an offer extremely quickly. The team are organised, friendly and efficient and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend MK Estates.” Rebecca McKay 21 Victoria Place, Bournemouth

March 2014- Steve and Shelagh Smith- Leslie Road

“I would just like to thank you Mark for the impressive service I have received so far from you and your lettings department whilst managing my block of 30 flats in Bournemouth. I am so impressed with your hard work, efficiency and excellent management that you have not just promised but delivered with exceeded expectations, and I would not hesitate to recommend MK Estates to anyone. You have truly made the transition from my previous managing agents such a smooth processIncredible team!”

MK Estates were not my first option to act as a sales agent for my previously let property, they took the task on via my initial agents who struggled to find a buyer over a period of a couple of months. MK Estates quietly carried out viewings without needing to contact me, after two weeks of viewings unknown to me, I received a call out of the blue introducing themselves saying they had found a buyer. They successfully negotiated with the buyer that day to the price I had wanted to achieve. Being in London trying to sell a property in Bournemouth is not easy but with Mark and the team at MK estates it has been as smooth as it possibly could be, nothing it seems, has been too much trouble, even down to the final stages of exchange and completion they are 100% committed and liase with all parties and

Veronica Strongman (Sales & Lettings Director), Des Simmons (Managing Director), Anita Smith (Holiday Lettings Director)

ASK THE EXPERTS Bournecoast Property Agents Is it true that furnished holiday letting (fhl) has tax advantages? Holiday letting will usually earn landlords higher rental income, up to £2500 per week in some cases, and the profit from properties that meet the HMRC qualifying tests for FHLs is taxed following the rental business (property income) calculation rules. However, FHLs are treated as trades for some tax purposes and therefore have some tax advantages over other lettings. The advantages under the special rules are:

CAPITAL ALLOWANCES FHLs are treated as a trade for the purposes of giving capital allowances. FHL businesses are entitled to capital allowances on the furniture, white goods, etc. within the property but non-FHL businesses do not quality for these capital allowances. The 10% wear and tear allowance that you are entitled to if you have an ordinary rental business is not available as an alternative. There are no capital allowances for the cost of the property itself or the land on which it stands.

CAPITAL GAINS TAX (CGT) RELIEFS CGT rules are applied to FHLs as if they were a trade. You can get more information on how CGT rules apply to FHLs in the HMRC helpsheets online. The reliefs that can be available for FHLs are Entrepreneurs’ Relief, Business Asset Rollover Relief, Relief for gifts and similar transactions, Debts and Capital Gains Tax (relief for loans to traders – here the relief is for the person who makes the loan to you.)

PENSIONS RELIEF FHL profits count as relevant UK earnings for pension purposes. Please see page TRG 17 of the HMRC Tax Return Guide for more on this.

FHL QUALIFYING TESTS (for 2011–12 and for 2012–13 and later) Please note that for 2011–12 the old availability and occupation tests apply. The new tests apply for 2012–13 and later. You must satisfy all three of the following tests if a letting is to qualify. 1. The availability condition (availability test/threshold) – during the period (normally the tax year – see the HMRC FHL online helpsheet), the accommodation is available for commercial letting as holiday accommodation to the public for at least 210 days (140 days for 2011–12 and earlier). 2 The letting condition (occupancy test/threshold) – during the period, the accommodation is commercially let as holiday accommodation to the public for at least 105 days (70 days for 2011–12 and earlier). 3 The pattern of occupation condition – the accommodation must not be let for periods of longer-term occupation for more than 155 days during the year. If you are interested in learning more about the advantages of holiday letting and how you can have an agency manage the holiday letting process for you please contact Bournecoast Holiday Agents on: 01202 437888.

ASK THE EXPERTS Aspray Estate Agents in Ashley Cross

Get ‘Eggcited’ with Aspray! With Easter just around the corner, and lent almost up! – Aspray Estate and Letting agents in Ashley Cross thought what better way to celebrate a great start to the year then by giving away huge amounts of chocolate! The sales and letting market this year has so far been gradually growing month by month, however there is an evident lack of properties compared to the current demand being received. We just can’t get enough “eggcellent” properties to sell and let! Which seems to be a reoccurring theme across the south coast. With the Easter holidays coming up and daffodils in bloom we thought we would get Spring time under way by filling a giant chocolate Easter Egg with even more chocolate eggs and inviting people to guess “eggsactly” how many eggs are inside in order to win the lot! With over 4 kgs of chocolate up for grabs, it’s no wonder that people have been guessing in their droves to try and win this chocolaty prize. With some coming quite close! The competition closing date is the 17th April, falling just in time for the end of lent. Therefore it is perfect for those of you who have given up chocolate for those 40 long days!

So come on down to the office or ‘like’ and put your guess on the Aspray Facebook Page (www.facebook.com/aspraypoole) for your chance to win!

ASK THE LETTINGS EXPERT Sharon Canning Move On Rentals

Q

A

I am retired and have some savings which are not giving me a good return. I am thinking of investing some of it into property and renting it out. I haven’t done this before and have never rented myself personally. Although the return looks as if it would be good for me I am also aware of the horror stories of tenants not looking after the property or not paying their rent. Can you offer me any advice? Over the last two to three years I have spoken to many people in a similar situation. You have reached retirement and instead of enjoying the fruits of your labour you are eating into your savings. I would suggest very strongly speaking to someone who can advise you of different options that may be good for your money as well as speaking to a reputable agent who will advise you on the property side of things face to face and can be more personal to your circumstances. However, I will try and give a broad answer to your question. Generally when I advise, the first thing I ask is ‘are you going to ever live there?’ The answer is normally ‘no’. The reason I say this is because when choosing a property you need to look at it from a business point of view. For example you may be able to purchase a lovely 2 bedroom flat in Sandbanks, but the return on your money will be low, or you could purchase a 3 or 4 bedroom house in say Parkstone, which would give a much better return. You could also spread your money and purchase a couple of properties, which together could give you more return and are unlikely to be empty at the same time in between tenancies, reducing the risk of no income. Alternatively you may wish to purchase in a different part of the country where property prices are much lower, giving you better yield on your money. It depends if you want to be a hands on landlord or a landlord who likes to drive by and check on your investment. One thing I would recommend is you use a good letting agent. The legislations in the industry are changing all the time and there can be some heavy fines for not abiding by the rules. A good letting agent will ensure the tenants going in are fully referenced and credit checked as well as attending regular property inspections. They should also belong to an industry body. Getting it right at the beginning mitigates the chance of having a rogue tenant. I can count on one hand in the last 22 years where a tenant has left a property in an appalling condition.

ASK THE EXPERT Evelyn Runde Director HD Inventories

3 Simple Steps to a Successful Tenancy Check-Out A key aspect of the successful management of any tenancy is the check-out process. Landlords want to recover the property in the same condition as they let it in the first place so they can re-let it straight away. Tenants, on the other hand, are likely moving to a new house and trying to juggle the many things involved with moving home which makes it likely that they forget to properly check that everything is done to the required standard. Unfortunately, this results in bitter disputes between landlords and tenants and it creates problems that could be easily avoided if everyone knew what it is expected of them from the start. For landlords this means rectifying problems, such as cleaning and repairs, and potentially losing rental income during the time the property is getting ready for the new tenants to move in or even for the property to be ready to be advertised and viewed by potential tenants. For tenants it results in claims against their deposit which sometimes come as a shock as the cost of hiring professionals to carry out a job is usually higher than what they expect. We find that following these 3 simple steps can avoid most of these problems:

STEP 1 Property Inventory – A detailed, independent property inventory at the beginning of the tenancy is essential to establish what the condition of the property was to begin with and to serve as a reference of what is expected at check-out time.

STEP 2 Pre Check-Out Letter and Checklist – 2 weeks before the check-out send your tenants a letter containing a checklist so they know what it is expected of them. Make it clear that a professional, independent check out report will be compiled when they vacate the property and that failure to return the property as expected may result in a claim against their deposit.

STEP 3 Conduct an independent check out inspection – Make sure you get a professional check out inspection and report compiled. Any issues highlighted by this will bear much more weight in front of an adjudicator if they are properly documented by an independent party.

To learn more about how video inventories can help you protect your property contact Evelyn Runde at: evelyn.r@hd-inventories.co.uk or visit www.hd-inventories.co.uk

ASK THE EXPERT Aimee Ramage Lettings Manager Burns Lettings

Landlords - How to find a good Lettings Agent There are numerous Letting Agencies in & around Bournemouth. So how do you know who to choose? We all know that “money makes the world go round”. However you’ve also heard that good old saying of “You get what you pay for”. To choose a good lettings agent, you need to focus on the service they deliver rather than the price they charge. We understand that everyone is looking for a good deal, however as you’re trusting an Agent to look after one of your biggest investments it is imperative that you make the right decision! The sign of a decent agent is one who looks after the tenant as well as you as a Landlord. So as a Landlord looking for a good Letting Agent I would recommend posing as a tenant first and see how well you are taken care of. I’ve rented in Bournemouth and dealt with numerous Letting Agencies in the process. There are some truly excellent Letting Agencies in Bournemouth & I’m delighted to be running one of them! As a Landlord you need to be there are typically three things you need to watch out for when choosing the right letting agency for you:1. Firstly, agents aren’t regulated, but the better ones typically belong to the National Approved Lettings Scheme (NALS) or the Association of Residential Letting Agents (ARLA). 2. Next, you need to check their terms and conditions. These can be 40 pages long, so if you want to be sure of the agreement, check it with a lettings legal professional. 3. Finally, understand the actual service you will be getting. All agents will say they do accompanied visits and inventories throughout the tenancy, for example, but do they? How will you be able to check? The Burns Lettings team is ARLA qualified or currently studying for their qualifications. We have over 50 years experience in keeping our clients happy. Excellent communication is the key to any successful relationship. Here at Burns Lettings we pride ourselves on our proactive, professional approach to all aspects of our Business. Whether you are an existing Landlord or looking to purchase your first investment property for professional advice please call Aimee today on 01202 55 33 35 or email aimee@burnslettings.com

THIS WEEK: HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT TYPE OF BOILER TO SUIT YOUR HOME’S NEEDS. If the current warm weather and the swathes of blooming flowers are any indication, spring is definitely here. But does that mean you can put up with an old boiler? Can you just switch the heating off and forget about any problems until the nights draw in again? No, it doesn’t. A boiler that’s 15 years old or more is only around 60-70% efficient, meaning as much as 30p-40p of every pound spent on heating and hot water is wasted. Many older boilers also have a standing pilot light, which can cost around £50-£60 a year to keep going. “Updating to an A-rated condensing boiler could make your heating system up to 90% efficient, so it’s well worth considering,” says Martyn Bridges, director of technical support at Worcester, Bosch Group.

The size of your home, especially the number of bathrooms and shower rooms, and how much heating and hot water your family uses will largely determine your choice of boiler, of which there are three main types: system, regular, and combination (or combi). But which is right for you? “You don’t have to replace your boiler like-for-like though,” continues Bridges. “Replacing a dated floorstanding model is an ideal opportunity to get the boiler off the floor and free up some space for more cupboards or worktops. And if you choose a combination boiler, there is no need for a hot-water cylinder. If the cylinder was in the bathroom, you may even free up enough space for a walk-in shower.” Also, with a combi, you heat water on demand, so you only pay for what you use, and deliver it at mains pressure. While combis are ideal for

homes with one bathroom or shower room, they can also be suitable for homes with two, providing they’re powerful enough. “High-output wall-hung combis are available with outputs of around 40kW and above,” says Bridges. “These offer flow rates almost twice that of some combis and typically deliver 17-18 litres per minute, which is comparable to a hot-water cylinder. Worcester also makes the floor-standing Greenstar Highflow combi, with flow rates of 20 or 25 litres per minute, which is suitable for properties with two bathrooms.” Unlike combis, regular boilers need a cylinder, which stores the hot water, plus an expansion tank in the loft too. System boilers also use stored water, which allows them to feed several hot-water taps at the same time, making them ideal for bigger homes.

PRODUCT OF THE WEEK FLOOR CARE Period floorboards stained a dark colour look stunning, and it’s a good way to disguise patches of more modern boards. Use Ronseal Diamond Hard Floor Varnish in Satin Walnut (£42.98 for 2.5ltr, B&Q) - it’s low odour, nice to use and dries quickly, so you can re-coat in no time. As well as being a lovely rich colour, this varnish is designed to resist wear and tear so it’s hugely practical too. A few coats is enough for most floors, but the more coats you do, the more beautiful the colour becomes. 140

Of course, the problem with stored hot water is that you can use it all before the cylinder has a chance to refill, which shouldn’t happen with a combi because it supplies hot water on demand. “Regular boilers also require more space than combi or system boilers, as they often need an expansion tank in the loft, and are suitable for homes with more than two bathrooms and where hotwater usage is high but water pressure is low,” says Bridges. “In contrast, system boilers have most of the major components of the heating and hot-water system built

in, making them more efficient and less space consuming, as there’s no need for a tank in the loft. They are connected to either a mains-pressure hot-waterstorage cylinder or a more traditional low-pressure, tank-fed cylinder.” If in doubt, ask an experienced heating engineer for advice about boilers, as more than one type may be suitable for your home. And remember to factor in future changes you may make, such as adding bathrooms or shower rooms, or expanding your family - the more people there are, quite simply, the more hot water they will use.

ASK THE EXPERT What is a heat pump? A heat pump is a more efficient way of heating your home. There are 2 different types; air source heat pumps and ground source heat pumps. An air source heat pump looks similar to an air conditioning unit and is located on the outside of the property. It takes the latent heat from the ambient air to heat a refrigerant. This refrigerant is compressed which allows it to draw in further heat. This super heated refrigerant then passes over a heat exchanger which is where we get our useable energy for the central heating system. A ground source heat pump works in an identical way but takes its latent heat from within a borehole or from a row of trenches. A heat pump can be used as a complete replacement for a boiler giving you all you’re heating & hot water needs or it can be used alongside your existing boiler. Common perception is that heat pumps will only work with under floor heating however they can run very efficiently with a correctly sized radiator system. The biggest change you would notice is your radiators will no longer get as hot. By running the system for longer at lower temperatures it is more energy efficient helping to reduce your carbon footprint. With conventional boilers every kW of input provides approximately 0.95kW of heat. With a heat pump every kW of energy input can be converted up to 4.5kW of heat energy. This can make a heat pump up to 4.5 times as efficient as a gas or oil boiler which would be expressed as a Coefficient of Performance (COP) of 4.5. Heat pumps are powered from mains electricity and therefore if you were looking to lower your running cost further you could consider installing Solar PV (Electric) panels. By using the electricity that the panels produce you could effectively have free hot water during the summer months. There is a misconception that heat pumps are noisy, which is generally untrue. If you purchase a well recognised accredited brand and have it installed by an MCS approved installer the noise levels are around 48 decibels which in our experience is similar to a microwave.

Are there any financial incentives? In a couple of weeks the Government will be announcing the final details of the RHI scheme, which to those who aren’t aware is the Renewable Heat Incentive. This scheme is designed to give anyone who invests in installing a green technology a financial return on their investment. The payments are based on the amount of kWh per annum the property requires. For each kW produced you receive a nominated payment depending on the technology. This is calculated and repaid to you on a quarterly basis. These payments will continue for 7 years after your installation and should ensure that you receive a full return on your investment. This coupled with the savings made on your energy usage through the higher efficiency levels means that you will never be out of pocket. Why wouldn’t you install one?

The RHI scheme also covers other technologies including Solar Thermal, Biomass Boilers and Ground Source Heat Pumps. For further information on any of the above or if you would just like to discuss your future renewable energy options please contact Low Carbon Energy Centre on 01202 888561 or see our website:

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

BRITAIN’S DIRTIEST DRIVERS!

MCLAREN 650S DEBUT McLaren has just released more details of its new 650S model, priced from £195,250 in coupe form and £215,250 as a convertible. Capable of 0-60 mph in three seconds and 124 mph in just 8.4 seconds, the car has a top speed of 207 mph. “Optimised aerodynamics ensure that the performance of the McLaren 650S is accessible and increases driver engagement,” says McLaren. “Enhanced handling, high-speed balance and steering turn-in result from improved levels of downforce.”

Despite its stripped-out road-racer performance figures, the 650S boasts a luxury specification. Carbon ceramic brakes, lightweight alloy wheels shod with Pirelli P Zero Corsa tyres, IRIS satellite navigation with Bluetooth telephony, DAB digital radio in Europe (SIRIUS satellite radio in North America), wireless tethering, audio streaming and voice control are all fitted as standard.

The cabin is trimmed in Alcantara. Enhanced levels of optional specification are also offered, including fixed-back carbon racing seats, based on the lightweight design found in the McLaren P1, electric steering column adjustment, rear parking camera and extended carbon fibre throughout the interior. The 650S returns 24.2 mpg combined, and a CO2 figure of 275 g/km makes it one of the most efficient models in its class.

Drivers the Southern half of Britain are the dirtiest motorists in the country – according to a recent national survey by IMO Car Wash Group. The study showed that 55% of Southern drivers admitted leaving it a month or longer before cleaning their cars. On the other hand, it was the Scottish who shone through as the cleanest motorists, with 60% washing their car at least once a month. The poll also revealed that Volkswagen owners are the proudest motorists in Great Britain. Six out of ten of Volkswagen drivers clean their car at least once a month, and were the most concerned about damage to their vehicle while it was washed. In comparison, Nissan drivers proved the grubbiest with just one third washing their cars at least once a month. As a whole, 49% of motorists in Great Britain clean their cars at least once a month, but in the battle of the sexes male drivers came out on top. A total of 52% of men clean their car once a month, compared to 44% of women. When it comes to deciding on how to clean their car, men are also motivated by convenience and a previous good experience while women are more likely to choose a car wash based on quality and cost.

ALL-NEW PEUGEOT 308 SW The Nissan Note range has been boosted by a new version, the 98 hp 1.2 litre DIG-S. Powered by Nissan’s supercharged petrol engine, DIG-S promises best in class efficiency and low running costs. It returns 65.7 mpg combined, with just 99g/km emissions.

The arrival of the DIG-S completes the Note’s powertrain line-up and is expected to represent 25 per cent of sales in the UK. It will carry a £1,000 premium over the non-supercharged 1.2-litre engine. Available from Acenta trim upwards, prices start at £14,495.

Says Nissan:”The advanced direct injection engine delivers the economy and emissions of a diesel with the refinement and responsiveness of a 1.6-litre four-cylinder petrol engine... yet the low-friction, lightweight and highly efficient three-cylinder DIG-S displaces just 1,198cc.”

At the same time as DIG-S models arrive in showrooms, Nissan is introducing a Style Pack which is available from Acenta grade and costs an additional £800.

A full factory-fitted option, the Style Pack allows owners to create a more distinctive and dynamic look for their new Note. Styling enhancements include two-tone diamond cut 16-inch alloy wheels, rear privacy glass, carbon look rear bumper, neat rear roof spoiler, side sills and a more aggressive front bumper with a glossy black grille and topped by black bezel headlamps. Inside there’s an exclusive three spoke steering wheel.

DIG-S models are available with the choice of either a five-speed manual transmission or an optional XTronic. The range-topping DIG-S models have 16-inch alloy wheels as standard as well as revisions to the suspension for enhanced ride and handling. Changes include new springs, dampers and roll-bars, revised steering settings and the addition of stiffening braces at the front and rear to improve body stiffness still further.

For healthier & younger looking skin

Matthew Edge-Wilkins Platinum Property Partners Ltd Highly commended at the 2013 In-house Recruitment Awards, Matthew is the Recruitment & HR Manager at Platinum Property Partners Ltd. He is also the Founder of myinhouse recruitment; a separate division of the Platinum Group who provide a unique, virtual in-house recruitment service to SMEs, new business ventures and property companies.

Hiring the best talent... In-house or Outsource? One of the biggest and often most changeable decisions in a business (particularly those experiencing growth), is what functions to have in-house and what to outsource. In the case of recruitment, the overriding decision is usually based on cost vs time. With the recent popularity surge in social media and in particular LinkedIn, an increasing number of businesses are choosing to bring their recruitment in-house in order to leverage these cost-effective talent resources, that up until recently weren’t available. Although bringing in skilled recruiters in-house has many upsides, due to the large overhead cost involved, this is often not a viable option for many SMEs, who wouldn’t have the volume of hires to justify the overhead costs involved. This means they either recruit themselves through word of mouth, friends of friends, local advertising etc, or they outsource this need to a recruitment agency. Due to the increased competition agency fees have dropped over the years but still amount to around 10 -15% of first year salary, which is still a significant cost for an SME business owner. In these situations the Hiring Manager should factor in the agency placement cost to the overall budget for the role.

The Key Benefits of Both: Inhouse:

Outsource:

• Better knowledge of brand and company culture • Can greatly increase brand and company awareness • Better candidate engagement • More control over the selection process • Able to build talent pools for future vacancies

• No constant overhead cost • You only pay when a successful hire is made • Big savings in time • Often less hassle • Have access to a bigger candidate base and ability to get your vacancy out to a wider network of job hunters

HEALTH & BEAUTY

FIGHT NIGHT THE AFTERMATH THIS WEEK: WE TALK TO CHARLIE LOWE FROM FITTER THAN FIT YOU RECENTLY FOUGHT AN OPPONENT AT THE HUGELY SUCCESSFUL FIGHT NIGHT - THE RISING. HOW DID YOU PREPARE FOR THAT?

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. 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!

Charlie 07968855163 Michael 07766090116 info@fitterthanfit.co.uk PHOENIX MMA 725 Wimborne Road Bournemouth, BH9 2AX 150

A lot of training. I knew my opponent and what kind of fighting back ground she had come from. So Michael formed a game plan around that. There was strength and endurance work speed and power and lots of cardio. Loads of fighters can have amazing skills but if they gas early on its all over. We also did a lot of sparring. ALOT. WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE STRIKE TO USE IN ANY FIGHT? That would really depend on who your fighting. Your ‘go to’ move may not always work on everyone so you have to adapt quickly. I’m always quite fond of just a good right cross though simple but if timed correctly effective.

HOW HAS WASSMUFFIN FITTER THAN FIT HELPED YOU? Although both Michael and I come from a Thai Back ground My specialty is the fitness side and Michaels the fighting side. I’ve learnt so much from Michael. He’s so knowledgeable in this field. Sometimes the small things make all the difference. If I could just actually do exactly what he said when I left my corner it would all be tickety boo! WERE YOU DISAPPOINTED AFTER YOUR CLOSE LOSS. THERE WAS ONLY 1 POINT IN IT? No not at all. it was a close fight I gave it my all at the time. But I knew it was going to be a hard one. My opponent Jo is a tough cookie. But I took this fight on knowing I was going to be lighter, less experienced and I’m quite a bit older. I just wanted to fight. And A lot of people afterwards told me it was a good fight. I would rather loose well then win badly.

THE ATMOSPHERE ON THE NIGHT WAS FANTASTIC DID YOU HAVE ANY NERVES THOUGH? Oh Yeah for Sure. But it was such a great show to be on and I had a great team behind me. Also I was very lucky to have some fantastic friends in the crowd including Bootcampers and people from the Fitter than Fit Team. I really enjoyed the evening and think Phoenix put on an incredible show. The next ones lined up for May 24th and an amazing amount of tickets have sold already so for anyone who is interested I suggest you get in contact with us at Fitter than Fit or directly to Phoenix MMA Gym. HOW DID YOU FIND THE TIME TO FIT IN YOUR TRAINING AROUND EVERYTHING ELSE YOU DO? I’m not going to lie that is one of the hardest parts. Trying to juggle

3 kids, A home, a job, teaching and training. But If you’re passionate about something you find time. And I have a very understanding helpful family which I’m very appreciative of. The kids will always come first that’s standard. but when you make training part of your life style it fits in somewhere. Whether you get up 30 mins earlier or you sacrifice your favorite TV show things are adaptable if you want them bad enough. WILL YOU BE FIGHTING AGAIN SOON? Yes definitely when they find me a good match I’m on it. I’m training all the time anyway. Its just a question of as soon as I know adapting my training towards the style of whoever I’m matched with. I can’t wait to get back in there.

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

Find out what makes serums different from moisturizers, and why you should add them to your routine. Light, fluid and fast-absorbing, facial serums are the feelgood stars of skin care and are especially appealing if your skin has taken a beating over the winter and is in need of a moisture surge. The fact that they have an instant, tangible hydrating impact on the skin makes them somewhat addictive. Serums are water-based

SUPERCHARGE YOUR SKINCARE ROUTINE moisturizers that contain a high concentration of active ingredients, such as vitamins, antioxidants and/or plant extracts, to super-hydrate your skin and make it more radiant. Unlike regular moisturizers, serums do not contain occlusive emollients like shea butter, so they penetrate skin quickly as opposed to sitting on its surface. Generally, their silky texture comes from smoothing ingredients such as glycerine or “slip” agents such as

silicone.

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

THE LIBERTINE “The Libertine stands for fresh, quality food, paired perfectly with a good wine list and great beers & ales”

Situated in the heart of Westbourne, the Libertine encompasses the quirk and charm of it’s buzzing neighborhood. Every aspect of it’s design has been carefully crafted in order to provide a cozy hideaway for all of us to enjoy! Last week the House magazine team we’re invited to sample all of that the Libertine has to offer. At a glance, the menu speaks of individuality: each dish is bursting with personality, and flare. To start, firstly a classic with a twist: the pan-fried smoked haddock fishcake, with it’s light crispy coating and succulent fish, made moorish with a beautiful lemon an parsley aioli, and a different, yet surprisingly perfectly matched, poached egg, it was a wonderfully matched dish. Moving on to our second starter: the Libertine marinated duck skewers with cucumber yogurt and mixed leaves, the balance of the rich smokey marinade, to the palate cleansing cucumber yogurt was another classic made in unique Libertine style. For our main we chose to devour the 20oz Chateaubriand to share, with proper Béarnaise sauce, Roasted flat mushroom, Thick cut chips and Poppy seed onion rings. Sometimes the phrase ‘to share’ appears on the menu, and we can often be somewhat misled by the return on this promise, in this case, we were not disappointed! A beautifully presented main, that was more than amply sized for two. The sumptuous flavours produced by the red wine infusing with the juice of the oh so tender meat, only improved with the addition of the proper Béarnaise sauce. This dish continued to please, with the thicker than thick cut chips, achieving optimum balance of crispy coating versus fluffy inside and to complete this dish, the poppy seed onion rings, something you have probably never thought to compliment an onion ring, but it works! The pièce de résistance, desert. Two scrumptious dishes: Banoffee trifle, layered with chocolate brownie pieces and Honey panna cotta with poached rhubarb and shortbread crumble. When we visit our local pub, we come to expect a certain level of food, but don’t be fooled, the Libertine is comparative of that of a highly food focussed restaurant : The attention to detail in both of the deserts that our team sampled, is proof that every inch of care and effort is put into their food. The Banoffee trifle, three deserts in one: The sweet banana and toffee, combined with the rich chocolatey flavours of the brownie, all put together as a trifle, and layered with a peak of whipped cream. And finally we have the Honey panna cotta: so perfectly set, you almost don’t want to ruin it, but once you did you unlocked a taste sensation. The sweetness and creaminess of the honey pana cotta and the sharp, refreshing taste of the rhubarb crumble was yet another perfectly matched partnership. We give the Libertine 5 stars! Their attention to detail is apparent everywhere you look, and the food speaks the same message, in taste, presentation and the precision of balancing flavours throughout their dishes. 152

THE CROWS NEST AT SEVENS BOATSHED – SIX OF THE BEST A fabulous six-course tasting menu in a stunning setting at Seven’s Boatshed. Since its refurbishment, The Crow’s Nest at Seven’s Boatshed has been getting plenty of attention over the winter months. As well as its modern makeover, it has introduced a new menu. The interior style is distinctive and contemporary, which compliments the stunning views over Poole Park The Crow’s Nest has to offer from its first floor restaurant with terrace. It is a fantastic place to gather, open a bottle of wine, take in the breathtaking views and choose from the totally delicious menus. Our experience at The Boatshed was one of pure delight. On a chilly evening we arrived to a warm welcome and a vibrant atmosphere. We were shown to our table overlooking the lake and introduced to the six course-tasting menu. The menu showcased the variety of dishes available. It was designed to be enjoyed by all on the table, not to mention the selection of fine wines that accompanied each course. Our tasting menu commenced with an amuse bouche – an artichoke veloute with smoked garlic arancini accompanied with a fino-sherry (Harveys £3 per glass) which cut through the smoked garlic arancini beautifully. Next to arrive was the game terrine with fig and port chutney and toasted sour dough. Our sommelier Cris poured and accompanying tipple of Chardonnay (£18.95 a bottle) its floral notes complimented the flavorsome game, which was wonderful. Continuing on to the intermediate course, we enjoyed herb and pink peppercorn crusted salmon with pea puree. Beautifully presented and served with a gorgeous Sauvignon Blanc (£20.45 a bottle). After a palate cleanser of lemongrass and ginger sorbet, we moved onto the main course of Beef Wellington and slow cooked braised blade of beef, cooked to perfection; it melted in the mouth. These were served with parsnip puree, potato and horseradish rosti, kale and peppercorn reduction and a full bodied Gamay (Bottle £21.25). For the finale (yes, we were full but I can never refuse a dessert!) we had an exquisite, amazingly presented strawberry tiramisu with white chocolate shortbread that was the icing on the cake (no pun intended) accompanied with the syrupy dessert wine Sauternes (£29 a bottle). Whilst we reflected on our splendid culinary journey, we sipped our coffees, sat back and absorbed the surroundings. Overall, the whole experience was exactly what we expected from a place of such high promise as well as great value for money at just £35 per head. We would highly recommend Seven’s Boatshed for an evening out for a group of friends or even just as a couple.

Directed by Paul Hendy and starring Olivier-nominated Bob Golding as Eric Morecambe the show is a moving, often hilarious tale about one of Britain’s best-loved entertainers: from humble beginnings in Music Hall to 28 million viewers on Christmas Day, it’s the heart-warming, tear-jerking, laughter-inducing story of the man what brought us the sunshine. You only have to mention the name Eric Morecambe and a smile lights up the faces of all around you.
