SANDBANKS YACHT CO. A NEW WAY OF LIVING FOR SANDBANKS

S

andbanks Yacht Co. is fast becoming the most anticipated marine lifestyle development of its kind on the South Coast. Luxury residential properties will sit alongside bespoke dining, boating and fitness amenities, resulting in this development having huge appeal to both property hunters and local residents alike. Nine architect designed coastal properties form the centrepiece of the development, which will also encompass a Restaurant, Café, Gym, Boatyard and 155 swinging moorings. Developer, Roundset Westingly explains the vision for the development. “e brief for the scheme was to create nine contemporary coastal homes, taking inspiration from the surroundings, offering high end specification, modern contemporary design and incorporating lifestyle amenities to compliment them. e three waterfront properties, Newport House, Lulworth House and Rhode House are already an iconic feature of Poole Harbour and match their stunning location in every detail of their design and specification. e exteriors are dramatic

12

JUNE 2013

with some echoes of ships bows, which resonate with the waterfront location.” e Newport House show home, on the waterfront recently launched to rave reviews, with praise in particular being given to the quality of the build and specification. Gemma Martin, interior designer and owner of GM Designs explains the interior design concept, “e design ethos behind this project was to be sympathetic to the environment, serene and calm, without drawing away from the show stopping view. e space is light, airy and bright so that when the sun is shining, the design compliments the view and yet when the sea is rough and stormy, you feel warm and sheltered. It was really important to show a lifestyle rather than a show home”. e development is not only about luxury living, it also boasts a restaurant, café with decked sun terrace, members’ lounge, state of the art gym offering personal training expertise, a therapy room and a dry berth boatyard with 155 deep and shallow swinging moorings. Sandbanks Yacht Co. will be offering membership packages, which


SYC ED JUNE__ 11/06/2013 15:13 Page 2

will include gym membership and discounts at the restaurant and café. “e focus of the club will be on family and getting out on the water” says Ellie Taylor, Membership Manager, “we offer plenty of opportunities for people to relax at SYC and unwind and look forward to inviting boaters and non-boaters alike. Whether your idea of enjoyment is getting out on the water by boat, kayak or paddleboard or enjoying a relaxing drink and taking in the view, SYC has something to offer everyone. In the coming months members will be invited to a range of activities and events, and we look forward to making the club an all year round destination.” Jem Mills, Boatyard Manager, points out that SYC is not only for the experienced boater. “Don’t be afraid to come and ask for help, whether it be assisting you in buying the right boat, gaining more confidence with the boat you own or broadening your knowledge on the fabulous sailing waters in the area. Sometimes joining a new yacht club can be intimidating, but we pride ourselves on being friendly, helpful and professional.” Nigel Still, from Stephen Noble, sole agent for SYC says “is development is hugely exciting for Sandbanks. Never before has there been a development of this magnitude offering such a superb facility to the local community. It is a truly unique development combining residential with leisure facilities, all in one stunning location.” He goes on to say “A five year club membership and

access to an annual swinging mooring is being included in the property sale, which makes it an attractive option for both home owners and second home owners alike. We can also offer bespoke concierge services, arranging everything from housekeeping, laundry and key holding to private dining, airport pick ups and personal assistant services.” e first waterfront show home, Newport House is open for viewings every weekend from 11-4pm and weekdays by appointment. e shore side show home, No.2 e Peninsula, is scheduled to launch mid June. Waterfront homes - Prices start from £3.95m No’s 1-6 e Peninsula - Prices start from £1.25m For Residential Sales, call Nigel Still at Stephen Noble on Tel: 01202 557766 www.sandbanksyachtcompany.com 30-32 Panorama Rd, Sandbanks, Poole, BH13 7RD Membership and Club enquiries contact Ellie Taylor Membership Manager on Tel: 01202 611262 For Boatyard enquiries ask for Jem Mills, Boatyard Manager GM Design www.gmdesigns.eu info@gmdesigns.eu n

LOCAL HISTORY

LETTERS FROM WAR

A

new exhibition is opening at e REME Museum of Technology (e Corps of Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers), in Reading on 3 June. e exhibition, ‘To my dearest… Letters from War’, will see the love story of a WWII Dorset couple. Following the funeral of Jutta France earlier this year, a Dorset charity heroine, a local funeral director assisted with the arrangements of her personal effects, unearthing a moving love story. Bill Scott, funeral director at one of Bournemouth’s leading funeral directors, approached the museum of Jutta’s husband’s Corps with the idea of an exhibition. Bill has played a key part in the organisation of the exhibition, going above and beyond the call of duty. Mrs France’s personal effects have become a key focal point of the new exhibition looking at postcards and letters sent during and just after the Second World War. Visitors will have the opportunity to see love letters showing new relationships developing during the war, concerns of the soldiers for loved ones in London during the Blitz and a family’s attempt to find news of their son. One of the key exhibits will follow German-born Jutta’s forbidden relationship with her husband, a British soldier. e keepsakes include her husband’s war memorabilia, such as medals, as well as personal pictures and correspondences, which document their lives and romance. Jutta France was born on 13 February 1927 in Hohenlimburg, Germany. She worked as a translator for the British occupying troops, which is where she met her future husband, Victor, a REME officer. After the war, Jutta dedicated her life to local charity work within Dorset, and in 1980, she launched the Dolphin Boat for the Disabled, before being offered a place on the Board of Directors. Jutta’s husband died in 1985 but she continued to campaign for many organisations such as Arthritis Care, the Dorset Association for the Disabled, Disabled Sports, Poole Stroke Club and the Dolphin Boat. Speaking about the exhibition; Bill Scott, funeral director at Deric Scott, commented: “We strive to serve our clients before, during and after bereavement and believe a bespoke approach to aftercare is what those who trust us with their funeral deserve. We have worked closely with Jutta’s close friend Brenda Baker and e REME Museum of Technology to organise the exhibition and honour the relationship of Jutta and her husband Victor.” e exhibition will run from Monday 3 June until the end of August at e Reme Museum of Technology, which aims to preserve the heritage of the Corps of Royal and Mechanical Engineers and collect, conserve and display objects to promote a broader understanding of the Corps, its interaction with society and its role within the army.

Nicky Haslam at his home in the country

SecretsofHaslams ' hotchpotchhome

H

e's the interior designer of choice for rock stars and royalty, but Nicky Haslam was happy to show Gabrielle Fagan around his personal country retreat and share his sought-after decor wisdom It would be easy to assume that Nicky Haslam, an interior designer with a global reputation and no stranger to private planes and palaces, might possess a home suited to the pages of celebrity magazines. You know, the type of place that speaks more of ostentation and status than style. But it's obvious on first sight of his enchanting house that nothing could be further from that stereotype. Nestling discreetly in rolling countryside and surrounded by forests of oak and chestnut trees, the 16th century Hunting Lodge was once used by King Henry VII as a resting place from the chase. It was here that Henry's eldest son, Arthur, Prince of Wales, met his fiancee, Catherine of Aragon, on her arrival in England, and when he died shortly after their wedding Catherine married his younger brother, the future King Henry VIII. None of that mattered to Haslam, who first set eyes on the Hampshire property as he stood in a clearing by the nearby lake and fell in love with "the fairytale facade of this rose-pink, brick-gabled folly glinting in the evening sun. It seemed like a stage set".

Nearly four decades on he's transformed a formerly neglected warren of small, bare rooms into an English country home which is unselfconsciously grand. Describing the house in his new book Folly De Grandeur, he calls it "an untidy jewel", and its charm and character gives an insight into the life of this extraordinary man. e list of high-profile clients who've used his talent over the last 50 years includes Rod Stewart, Mick Jagger, Charles Saatchi, Lord Andrew Lloyd-Webber and Rupert Everett. As a legendary party-goer and giver, Haslam has also designed countless events, including many for the Prince of Wales. With each commission he creates decor uniquely reflecting a client's taste, lifestyle and location. But he says, self-deprecatingly, as he invites me inside his own house: "It's been a joy for nigh on 40 years to furnish and decorate this romantic home. But it would be hopeless to pretend that my style, at home, is anything but a hodgepodge of the things I love. "It's an amalgamation of bits and pieces, some things inherited, some discovered in far-flung markets, or the dusty corners of antique shops, several impulse buys which I've never regretted and many, many presents from friends."

Haslams House 3 pages__ 11/06/2013 18:56 Page 2

local life A GLORIOUS ENTRANCE On entering the square hall it's obvious that Haslam has succeeded in painstakingly preserving the glory of the house's past while subtly enhancing its beauty. A terracotta floor is buffed and polished, as are the brass door handles and fingerplates, and the faux-panelled walls are painted a mellow stone colour. Silk curtains hanging from carved wood pelmets are a nod to John Fowler, legendary British interior designer and co-founder of Colefax and Fowler, who was the lodge's previous tenant. Haslam has leased the house from the National Trust since 1978 and has been adding rooms ever since. While each has a distinct character of its own, a colour or a pattern echoed or emphasised makes the transition between spaces seamless. Every setting is full of surprises. Tables are piled with books; other surfaces and plinths sport busts and statues in white plaster or terracotta, and paintings and engravings from his friends, Graham Sutherland, David Hockney and Lucien Freud, are framed but often left to informally lean against walls. Gothic furniture pieces mix comfortably with old items he's revitalised with a coat of paint, and magically blend with downright kitsch. Haslam's decor tip: Avoid at all costs a rigid mix-and-match approach and adopt instead an artistic "mismatch and muddle". SITTING IN STYLE It is the sitting room, barely 12ft square, which encapsulates what Haslam believes is the essence of country house style. "It must be informal, calm, colourful and comfortable," he says. Here, irregularly plastered walls are a pinky brown, originally achieved via an East Anglian recipe of ox blood and distemper, making them "the colour of old Elastoplast", says Haslam. He's complemented that hue with table lamps with tan lampshades which give a golden light in the evening. An arrangement of cotton-covered sofas and chairs faces an open fire, and a low Victorian bench acts as a coffee table. In petit point, he's spent months interpreting the gabled faced of the house on the upholstery fabric. In one corner there's a charming reminder of the more simple life of yesteryear, a white wall cupboard used for keeping bread warm. A door leads to the gardens, with their layout of beech hedges, box borders, secret paths and Gothic gazebos. Haslam's decor tip: White, brown and red variations, greys to pinks and all shades of beige work in any setting and are most flattering to the human complexion. ELEGANT DINING Entertaining takes place in the grey-green dining room with walls hand-painted in a chinoiserie-style design of delicate foliage, strange exotic fruit, black insects, birds and a straw bonnet with a red tassel. "It's the only extravagantly-decorated room in the house, and has a wonderfully ephemeral and light-hearted feel," says Haslam. A French rococo-style table, with a faux marble top, sourced at a house auction, stands centre stage, and dining chairs are upholstered in a bold Pierre Frey 'Ming' china bowls fabric found in Vienna. Haslam's decor tip: A touch of red is essential in every room scheme as it makes all the other colours sing. White porcelain and white table linen works well with displays of flowers, fruit, vegetables or even books for an interesting table setting. READING CORNER No inch of space is wasted and the library, the only room on the ground floor where a strong colour, a deep red, has been used, is a hideaway for reading and television. It's been created in the passageway leading to the dining room, once a stable with mangers for livestock. Haslam's decor tip: In rooms lacking in light, rather than trying to use light colours in a futile attempt to 'brighten' a space, opt instead for dark, rich colours to conjure warmth and cosiness. 22

JUNE2013

CALLED TO THE BAR A minuscule area between the sitting room and the kitchen, lined with bookshelves and with a table displaying a Bakelite telephone, is, says Haslam, the "nerve centre" of the house. "It's either called the telephone room or the bar, has the music system and beneath a painting of my mother is an essential, the drinks trolley. She would have approved of that positioning," he says with a smile. Haslam's decor tip: Beef up the scale of wall-coverings in small spaces to pull a scheme together because small patterns tend to trail away to nothing. KITCHEN MAGIC While Haslam laments the fact that his compact kitchen can't accommodate a huge table or a sofa, he regards the cooking area as "functionally pretty" and has brightened it with jaunty red and white striped and checked curtains.


Haslams House 3 pages__ 11/06/2013 18:56 Page 3

local life

Haslam's decor tip: Large chopping boards, made to measure, can cover a double sink to both extend the worktop and also hide the debris from cooking preparations. BEDTIME STORY ere's an airy, fresh atmosphere upstairs, where there are five bedrooms and three bathrooms. Haslam's own room has three leaded light windows giving glorious views of the lawn and surrounding forest. A canopy adds grandeur to the bed, and its fabric is a 19th century glazed chintz with a richness that emphasises the colour of the vertical strips of wallpaper border enlivening grey-blue walls. Haslam's decor tip: While pale blue and green can give bedrooms a fresh feeling, the hardest colour to use is yellow, which doesn't make a room feel sunny but merely soaks up dull light from outside. Strips of wallpaper border hung vertically can bring height and colour to plain walls.

INSIDE OUT Just beyond the house, Haslam has renovated a dilapidated outbuilding as a summer entertaining space. is garden room, with an airy pitched ceiling and three large French windows, has furniture upholstered in many of his own design fabrics, from a stripe to a bold rose print. "I firmly believe houses have a voice and a soul. You have to listen to that - they will wince if one treats them cavalierly," says Haslam, who is clearly in total harmony with this beautiful building and its surroundings. Nicky Haslam's Folly De Grandeur by Nicky Haslam, photographs by Simon Upton, is published by Jacqui Small, priced £40.

THE FISH MEDIA TEAM

Wessex Volleyball & Beach Volleyball UK Ltd. With the London 2012 Olympic legacy in full swing beach volleyball has basked in unprecedented new exposure. Sexy, hot, ultra-cool, exhilarating and fast are just a few words to describe this vastly expanding "Lifestyle Sport” with infectious appeal that has captured our nation. is year’s Oakley Sand Slam between great rivals England and Scotland will certainly not be for the faint hearted. International development squad athletes from TeamGB, England and Scotland will lock horns on the white sands to win this prestigious title. Former British TeamGB partners Tom Lord and Robin Miedzybrodzki who split shortly after the London 2012 Olympic Games will face each other in a Country over Kingdom showdown. Robin Miedzybrodzki said, ‘this setting stands to be our first competitive match since our split after London 2012. Having played together for so many years we know each other’s game inside and out. Spectators can expect fireworks from Tom Lord and myself as we’re both very proud countrymen.’ Both Robin and Tom are a part of the British Olympic Association ‘Rio 2016 Ambitions Athlete Programme’ and have re established themselves with new partners in order to qualify for the Rio Games. Tom Lord who’s currently training in Cyprus said, ‘Rio 2016 is our ultimate focus, however it’s some time away so highly competitive matches and the FIVB Tour are essential in building our new partnerships. is match represents the ultimate in bragging rights between myself and Robin, I’m sure you’ll see blood sweat and tears John McEnroe style. It’s a very important marker to where we both stand with our new playing partners’. All this testosterone will need some very strong marshalling, so who better than two time Olympic Finals referee’s and Director of Beach Volleyball UK ‘Jeff Brehaut’ to manage proceedings. Jeff ’s experience in refereeing will be essential to keep a smooth game flow and maintain a calm environment to ensure we see the best of the players and the sport. Tyron Dawkins, Oakley’s brand ambassador and event organiser said, ‘bringing the best Beach Volleyball to Sandpolo 2013 is what we’re all about, these athletes are in outstanding shape and we’re looking forward to see this contest of partnerships’.

Whether visitors are eating lobster and drinking Champagne and Chablis in the waterfront Sandpolo Hospitality marquee, enjoying the exclusive VIP experience, soaking up the atmosphere with General Admission Tickets, or just choosing to sit outside the fence on the purpose built beach viewing area, it is a chance for polo and Sandbanks to show off its attributes to about 5000 seasoned and new supporters each year. To complement the polo and volleyball, e Asahi British Beach Polo Championship offers a host of other activities such as ‘have a go’ polo, the beach fashion shows, the charity (in aid of Variety, the children’s charity) Audi V Polo Pony race and the vibrant retail village. e event is an excuse to dress up (or strip off for a quick swim), stay up late and indulge. THE PARTIES Polo players and supporters have something of a reputation for letting their hair down. e polo ‘beach after parties’ at Sandbanks provides seasoned and new comers to the sport with a very cool but exciting place to relax, socialise and dance until the small hours of the morning. On the Friday evening Cocoloco will bring no less than 6 of the UK's finest DJs to deliver COCOLOCO ON THE BEACH @ e Asahi British Beach Polo Championships 12/07/2013! After 6 years of partying across the South Coast, Cocoloco are getting the chance to host a party to remember. As the sun goes down, Poole will see the biggest DJ line-up ever seen in the area!

Beautiful Branksome Park

ZETLAND COURT (BRANKSOME DENE)

B

etween the town centres of Poole and Bournemouth lies Branksome, a residential area which has been split in two by the railway line connecting the two towns. South of the line is Branksome Park, an affluent suburb of Poole alongside neighbouring Canford Cliffs, Lilliput and Sandbanks. Unlike Sandbanks, where the houses are built along the beaches of the sandy spit, e Park’s residences are located away from the sea along the wooded chines which are typical of this area Although Branksome Park is part of Poole, its origin, like those of Canford Cliffs, Sandbanks and Lilliput, is a direct result of the overspill of the rapidly expanding town of Bournemouth at the end of the 19th century. Wealthy landowners had settled originally on the East Cliff, then on the West Cliff and Talbot Woods. Due to the popularity of Bournemouth as a leading seaside resort during the late Victorian and Edwardian eras and a lack of remaining land suitable for these opulent dwellings, the town being extended westwards along the coast towards Poole. For centuries this region was a vast wilderness of heath land, ravines and high cliffs overlooking the sea and a home to numerous lawless smugglers. Travellers would hurry through this area for fear of being mugged. In the early 1800s the Bruce family, who owned the estate, laid out the pine plantations, which can still be seen today, and named it Branksome Park after the Scottish setting of one of Sir Walter Scott’s poems. (Sir Walter Scott was a visitor to the area staying with William Stewart Rose MP at Mudeford further along the coast.) In 1853 Charles William Packe purchased 745 acres of the great Branksome Estate from the executors of Miss Bruce for £12,000. Packe was elected M.P. for South Leicestershire, in 1836, a seat he held until his death. He inherited the family's Leicestershire Prestwold estate but following a quarrel with his brother in 1850 he left and moved south.

THE AVENUE C 1905

Packe employed William Burn, his architect at Prestwold, to build his mansion Branksome Tower overlooking the sea and 4 lodges. A large wall surrounded the estate and there were massive gates at the Westbourne end of the rhododendronbordered drive. His new estate extended from County Gates to Redland Pottery (now Pottery Junction), through Canford Cliffs to the Martello Tower, back to Branksome Dene Chine and County Gates. Martello Towers, were small defensive forts first built on the south and east coasts of England during the Napoleonic War between 1805 and 1808. Before the boundary changes of 1974 Bournemouth was in Hampshire and Poole in Dorset. County Gates marked this boundary. It has since been demolished along with the estate’s lodge at Westbourne and built over by the Frizzell gyratory roundabout (which is now home to Liverpool Victoria) at the end of the Wessex Way although traces of the wall can still be seen. Actively involved in Bournemouth’s affairs, Packe helped set up the first dispensary in Yelverton Road for the treatment of the poor who were sick and supported the building of the Sanatorium. He also saw to the construction of the mausoleum on his estate, which can still be seen today in Branksome Dene Chine, where both he and his wife Kitty have been laid to rest. In 1980 a young couple attempted to buy the mausoleum to convert it into a residence but the Packe family declined. It was given over to Poole Borough Council in 1991 and is now listed building. After Packe’s death in 1867 the estate was sold to Francis and Henry Bury who then developed some of the estate while taking care to preserve the natural environment. e brothers laid out most of the roads in the area and divided the land into plots of at least one acre, although many plots were much larger, to allow the development of a small number of large villas. In September 1875 Henry Bury laid the foundation stone for a new church – All Saints in Western Road – but unfortunately

he died before the building was completed in 1877. e church is a simple brick building faced with Portland stone and many of the Bury family are commemorated inside the church. e first vicar was a family member, Edward Bury. Before the end of the 19th century the mansion’s main drive became e Avenue. Impressive houses were built each side of this wide road flanked by tall rhododendron bushes including ‘Cerne Abbas’. After Henry’s death the family sold and leased plots, finally selling Branksome Tower (off Westminster Road) in 1892 to Mr W.H. Dore who turned it into a quality hotel of international repute. It was frequented by royalty, nobility and celebrities. In 1963 the Beatles stayed at Branksome Towers Hotel while playing a series of concerts in Bournemouth. e hotel was demolished in 1973, despite a great public outcry, and the land developed. Now known as Zetland Court in Alumhurst Road, Branksome Dene was built in 1840 as the south coast villa for Lord and Lady Wimborne and was often used to entertain Royalty. In the 1890s it was an occasional holiday home of a young Winston Churchill, who was Lady Wimborne’s nephew. It was here that Winston nearly died when he fell off a suspension bridge rupturing his kidney and losing consciousness for 3 days. Other notable owners included Sir Edward Cassel and his 30

grand daughter Edwina Ashley who later became Lady Edwina Mountbatten. In the 1920s the building was converted into e Branksome Dene Hotel and was known as the first vegetarian hotel in Bournemouth. During the Second World War the hotel was commandeered by the Ministry of Defence. After the war it was privately purchased and used as a Jewish convalescent home. In the late 1970s the building and grounds were purchased by the Royal Masonic Benevolent Institution who refurbished the house and restored the grounds to their former glory. e building was renamed Zetland Court after omas Earl of Zetland, who had been the M.W. Grand Master from 1844 to 1869 and it was officially opened in 1983 by H.R.H. the Duke of Kent. In 1905 Branksome Urban District was absorbed into Poole. e first public solarium where people could sunbathe under ultra violet lamps was opened in 1932 at Branksome Chine. Branksome has a beautiful sandy beach which again has been given the prestigious Blue Flag award. Poole has developed the promenade at both Branksome Chine and Branksome Dene Chine very tastefully without spoiling them and Branksome Dene has its own natural charm with a nature reserve extending up the ravine from the beach. Much of this area’s short history can be remembered in its road names: Bury Road, Leicester Road, Westminster Road,

BRANKSOME BEACH WITH SANDBANKS IN THE DISTANCE

Martello Road, Tower Road, Branksome Towers, Mountbatten Road and Branksome Dene Road. Branksome Park is now a Conservation Area. Its special interest is from a number of characteristics which combine to form this unique region within the Borough of Poole. Much of the character of Branksome Park has been preserved: its spacious sylvan character is derived directly from its division into large building plots in the 19th century by the Bury family and this influence combined with the historic covenants they imposed on the sale of their land have significantly influenced the appearance of ‘e Park’ today. e road layout, dense evergreen hedges, turf embankments and wooded plots all date from the Bury family’s original plan and have made Branksome Park noticeably different from the surrounding areas. Being heavily wooded and not densely populated creates a peaceful, spatial atmosphere. e fact that the houses are, on the whole, not very high and nestle among the trees, often not even visible from the rhododendron-flanked roads, and that the vegetation generally dominates the view gives the impression that this area is almost rural in character. e variety of lovely houses within e Park is a testament to its gradual development over the last 140 years with emphasis on good design and care over enhancing the look of the area. e buildings also illustrate the changing fashions in architecture over this period. Branksome Park is definitely distinct and isolated from the rest

of the Bournemouth/Poole conurbation due to this uniqueness. John Betjamen spoke the following words during a BBC programme broadcast in 1938 but they are still true today….. I shan’t tell you where all the lovely places are: I want them all to myself. But I’ll tell you where to look. Are you … anxious for a little sea air But not too much? Do you like what the guidebooks call “a salubrious climate” And a “respectable residential neighbourhood”? Then go to … the exclusive Branksome. Here the pine trees and rhododendrons and heather Are allowed to grow beside twisting roads – Steep climbs for him who pushes a bath chair – And houses hide respectfully among the foliage Of their spacious gardens…..

In 1875 lawn tennis, a game introduced by major Walter Clopton Wingfield a yyear ear or so earlier and originally called Sphairistike, was added to the activities of the Club. In the spring of 1877 the Club was re-titled ‘The All England Croquet and Lawn Tennis Club’ and signalled its change of name by instituting the first Lawn T Tennis ennis Championship.

T

The only evvent ent held h in 1877 was the Gentlemen n’s Singles which was won by Spencer Gore, an old Harrovian rackets ets playyer err, from a field of 22. About 200 spectators paid one shilling each to watch the final. The lawns at the Ground w wer ere arranged in such a way that the principal court was situated in the middle with the others arranged around it; hence the title ‘Centre Court’, which whi was retained when the Club mo ovved in 1922 to the present site in Church Road opened by King George V. The foresight of building the present stadium, designed to hold 14,000 people, did more to popularise the game worldwide than anything that has happened to date.Howevverr, in 1980 four new courts were brought into commission on the north side of the ground, which meant the 32

Centre Court was once more at the centre of the tournament. The opening of the new No. 1 Court in 1997 emphasised the description. By 1882 activity at the Club was almost exclusivvely confined to lawn tennis and that year the word ‘croquet’ was dropped from the title. Howeverr, for sentimental reasons, it was restored in 1899 and the club has been known as ‘The All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club’ evver er since. E Enter nter the Ladies Ladies In 1884 the Ladies’ Singles was inaugurated and, from an entry of 13 players, Maud Watson became the first champion. That same yearr, the Gentlemen n’s Doubles was started, with the trophy donated by the Oxford Univ ivversity Lawn Tennis Club after the end of their doubles championship, playyed ed from 1879 to 1883. Overseas Ov verseas Champions By the turn of the century Wimbledon had assumed an international character and in 1905 May Sutton of the United States became the first Champion from overseas when she won the Ladies’ Singles. She repeated her success in 1907, the year when Norman Brookes of Australia became the first Gentlemen’s Singles champion from overseas. Since that year yearr, only two players from Great Britain, Arthur Gore and Fred Perry, have

In 1980 Bjorn Borg of Sweden became the first playyer er to win the Gentlemen n’s Singles five times in the th post-challenge round era; a feat replicated by Roger Federer between 2003 and 2007. In 1985 Boris Beckerr, aged 17, became the youngest youngest playyer err, tthe first unseeded player and the first German to win the Gentlemen n’s Singles.

Henley Royal Regatta

O

ne of the most important dates in the British social and International rowing calendars, the Henley Royal Regatta is the epitome of an English summer day and is steeped in history. e Henley Royal Regatta was first held in 1839 and has been held annually ever since, except during the two World Wars. e first regatta took place on a single afternoon; however its popularity with the oarsmen extended the race to two days. Later in 1886 the event was extended to three days and in 1906 a further day was added, lengthening the regatta to a four-day event. By 1986 it was further extended to five days proving its popularity with the British public during the summer. Originally staged by the Mayor and people of Henley as a public attraction with a fair and other amusements, the emphasis rapidly changed so that competitive amateur rowing became its main purpose.

34

JUNE2013

e Regatta occupies a unique position in the world of rowing. It has its own rules and is not subject to the jurisdiction either of the governing body of rowing in the U.K. (British Rowing) or of the International Rowing Federation, but is proud of the distinction of being officially recognised by both these bodies. e length of the Course is 1 mile 550 yards, which is 112 metres longer than the standard international distance of 2,000 metres. It takes approximately seven minutes to cover, so there are often two races at once on the course for much of the day. e number of races is, of course, reduced on each successive day, leaving only the Finals to be rowed on the last day. Since 1884 the Henley Royal Regatta has been organised by a self-electing body of Stewards, at present numbering 60, most of whom are well-known and successful rowers and scullers. e Stewards' primary consideration in all their decisions is the best

interests of those who are competing in the races. e regatta today is one of the biggest events in the British and International social calendars and sees thousands of spectator’s crowd around the banks of the River ames every day. e private enclosures are the best way to see all of the sporting action in style and comfort and there is a wide variety on offer from Temple Island to the Stewards Enclosure. One of our favourite private enclosures is “rhubarb’s” River Lounge which offers a relaxed, sophisticated and stunning environment. e River Lounge is situated opposite the world famous Temple Island, only yards from the starting line. e famous Temple Island is situated a mile and a half downstream of the picturesque market town of Henley, on one of the most beautiful reaches of the River ames. Located amidst rolling water meadows and surrounded by wooded hills, it marks the start of the famous Henley Royal Regatta Course and was a recent feature in the Olympic opening ceremony. e Temple itself is a delightful folly, designed by James Wyatt as a fishing lodge for Fawley Court, the Christopher Wren mansion on the Henley Reach, from which the Temple completed a charming prospect through an avenue of trees and provides a stunning view for the River Lounge and other enclosures. ere is no formal dress code in many of the enclosures except the Stewards, however most spectators wear smart clothing with some guests opting for traditional Regatta attire in the form of lounge suits for men and dresses for ladies. Many of the enclosures start the day early including the River Lounge and Temple Island, whereby guests enjoy a delicious champagne and canapé breakfast. e River Lounge goes further

though, by creating beautifully sculptured gardens with alfresco seating and erecting a stunning marquee with a contemporary interior. e lounge serves gourmet cuisine throughout the day, a complimentary bar, live background music, head and neck massages and offers a river cruise on-board the Lilly Anna. River cruises are another great way to see the river and to explore the Regatta course but make sure you book early to avoid disappointment. Food and drink are as important as the racing during the regatta and there is a wide variety on offer from celebrity chefs to royal caterers across the course. “rhubarb” for example serve a variety of best of British and European menus from canapé and bowl food selections to stunning puddings and mains. Dishes include seasonal produce such as roasted rump of Welsh lamb, boulanger potatoes, green peas “à la Française”, buttered spinach and rosemary jus for a main or a choice of miniature puddings including Tiny Eaton mess, Pimms Royale jelly with summer berries, Mini summer pudding, Scottish raspberries and lemon curd in bitter chocolate pastry tartlet and Sherry trifle. e Regatta is easily accessible from Henley town centre with a quick trip over Henley Bridge towards Maidenhead. Parking is directly to the rear of the enclosures and is well sign posted. Races start from as early as 7.30am on some days and can go onto the early evening. Traffic can be a problem around the Regatta so make sure you leave plenty of time when setting off. Henley Royal Regatta 2013 is being held from Wednesday 3rd July to Sunday 7th July.

The 2013 Ashes Summer at Lord’s Cricket Ground THURSDAY 18TH – MONDAY 22ND JULY 2013

The second Investec Ashes Test Match between England and Australia will be hosted at the prestigious home of world cricket, Lord’s from Thursday 18th – Monday 22nd July. ith just a month to go until the most celebrated rivalry in cricketing history, Lord’s Cricket Ground is gearing up to meet the anticipated high demand for general tickets, and to book its iconic meetings and events spaces. Cricket fans will travel from all over the UK and the world to experience the pure excitement of The Ashes, and this truly iconic venue.

W

The term ‘Ashes’ was first used after England lost to Australia - for the first time on home soil - at The Oval on 29th August 1882.A day later, the Sporting Times carried a mock obituary of English cricket which concluded that: “The body will be cremated and the ashes taken to Australia”. The concept caught the imagination of the sporting public. A few weeks later, an English team, captained by the Hon Ivo Bligh [later Lord Darnley], set off to tour Australia, with Bligh vowing to return with “the ashes”; his Australian counterpart, WL Murdoch, similarly vowed to defend them. As well as playing three scheduled matches against the Australian national side, Bligh and the amateur players in his team participated in many social matches. It was after one such match, at the Rupertswood Estate outside Melbourne on Christmas Eve 1882, that Bligh was given the small terracotta urn as a symbol of the ashes that he had travelled to Australia to regain. 36

JUNE2013

On the same occasion, he met his future wife - Florence Morphy - who was the companion to Lady Janet Clarke, mistress of Rupertswood, and governess to the Clark children.In February 1884, Bligh married Florence. Shortly afterwards, they returned to England, taking the urn - which Bligh always regarded as a personal gift - with them. It stayed on the mantelpiece at the Bligh family home - Cobham Hall, near Rochester in Kent - until Bligh died, 43 years later. At his request, Florence bequeathed the urn to MCC. Today, over 75 years on, the tiny, delicate and irreplaceable artefact resides in the MCC Museum at Lord’s. Each year, it is seen by tens of thousands of visitors, from all parts of the world. In the 1990s, recognising the two teams’ desire to compete for an actual trophy, MCC commissioned - after discussions with the England & Wales Cricket Board (ECB) and Cricket Australia - an urn-shaped Waterford Crystal trophy. This was first presented to Mark Taylor after his Australian side emerged triumphant in the 1998-99 Test series against England. Since then, the trophy has been presented to the winning captain at the end of each Test series between Australia and England.Most recently, it was presented to Andrew Strauss after England’s 3-1 victory over Australia in the 2010/11 Ashes Series. Marylebone Cricket Club was founded in 1787 - a fact gathered from a poster for a cricket match in 1837 announcing MCC’s Golden jubilee. Before then, however, aristocrats and noblemen played

JAMES ANDERSON CELEBRATES AFTER DISMISSING NEW ZEALAND’S HAMISH RUTHERFORD

their cricket in White Conduit Fields at Islington, London. Like shooting and fox-hunting, cricket was considered a manly sport for the elite - with plenty of gambling opportunities to boot. (Around £20,000 was bet on a series of games between Old Etonians and England in 1751!) As London’s population grew, so did the nobility’s impatience with the crowds who gathered to watch them play. In pursuit of exclusivity, they decided to approach Thomas Lord, a bowler with White Conduit CC, and asked him to set up a new private ground. An ambitious entrepreneur, Lord was encouraged by Lord Winchilsea to lease a ground on Dorset Fields in Marylebone - the site of the modern Dorset Square.He staged his first match - Middlesex (with two of Berkshire and one of Kent) versus Essex (with two given men) - on 31st May 1787. Thus Marylebone Cricket Club was formed. A year later, it laid down a Code of Laws, requiring the wickets to be pitched 22 yards apart and detailing how players could be given out. Its Laws were adopted throughout the game - and MCC today remains the custodian and arbiter of Laws relating to cricket around the world. After a short stay at Marylebone Bank, Regent’s Park, between 1811 and 1813, Lord’s moved to a new rural ground - previously the site of a duck pond - in St John’s Wood in 1814. It remains MCC’s home to this day. The ground was soon a major success and attracted hordes of players and spectators forcing Lord to build a Pavilion and refreshment stalls. In 1805, the dukes and earls were keen to see their sons play cricket and so hired the ground for an Eton versus Harrow schools cricket match - the start of a world-famous, and on-going, tradition. In 1825, when Thomas Lord was 70, he sold the ground to a Bank of England director, William Ward, for £5,000. Having provided the Marylebone Cricket Club with a ground for 38 years, Lord retired and then died seven years later - but his name lives on. That same year (1825), the Pavilion - housing scorecards, records and trophies - was destroyed in a fire. Work commenced immediately on a replacement, which opened the following year. At the time, the wicket was ‘prepared’ before a match by allowing sheep to come in and graze on the grass. However, the Club subsequently acquired its first mowing machine and appointed its first groundsman in 1864. In the 1870s, MCC decided it wanted to get involved in county cricket, which was growing in popularity, and, in 1877, it invited Middlesex to adopt Lord’s as its county ground - an arrangement which continues over 125 years later.

NICK COMPTON

MCC’s next step towards establishing itself as cricket’s most influential body involved its development of a relationship with Australia, where emigrants had started playing the game competitively. So in 1877 James Lillywhite and an England side boarded a steamer and travelled for eight weeks before playing Australia in the first official Test match - although it was not until 26 years later, in 1903, that MCC undertook official responsibility for England’s tours ‘down under’. One of MCC’s most famous players, Dr WG Grace, from Gloucestershire, gave the Club even greater recognition through his monumental performances and stature. A painting of him by A.S. Wortley was presented to the Club in 1890 and still hangs in the famous Long Room. In 1889, the foundation stone was laid for a new Pavilion, paid for by a £21,000 loan from William Nicholson, who had made his fortune from distilling gin. A year later it was opened in time for the new season. It is now a listed building and one of the most famous landmarks in world sport. At the turn of the century, the Board of Control for Test Matches, the Advisory County Cricket Committee and the Imperial Cricket Conference were all set up to cater for the growth in domestic, imperial and other international cricket. These bodies existed until 1968 when there was a major reorganisation of cricket in England. Since MCC was a private club it could not receive public funds, so it set up a Cricket Council as the governing body of cricket and the Test and County Cricket Board (TCCB) to administer the professional game. It also converted its MCC Cricket Association into the National Cricket Association (NCA) to look after the recreational game. As a result, cricket started to receive financial help from the Government. In the 1990s, the structure was changed again with the England & Wales Cricket Board (ECB) taking over responsibility for all cricket in England from the TCCB, NCA and Cricket Council. MCC is determined to ensure that Lord’s remains world-class, as well as world-famous. MCC has recently been investing even more money to ensure that Lord’s has both a unique historic appeal and truly state-of-the-art sporting facilities. Announcements will be made of players via the Lord’s Cricket Ground website shortly. www.lords.org

We have hand picked a range of frames from fashion shows in Paris and Milan that we are incredibly proud of and that is unique to this area. Our range of sunglasses includes the heritage brand of Oliver Goldsmith, who can forget Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s wearing the iconic Manhattan model which was also worn by Kate Beckinsale whilst shopping in London recently in 2012. Other notable

fans are Gwyneth Paltrow, Lucy Lui, Kylie Minogue, Jude Law and Robbie Williams. Tempany’s is the only stockist of this brand on the south coast. We shall also be one of only 22 practices in the country stocking the celebrated Moncler sunglasses as well as the well known Maui Jim polarized range. Underpinning the boutique atmosphere of the practice is the use of space and light. e frames are displayed as individual items not trapped on a rack in a sea of frames. Let our frame stylist guide you in your choice of eyewear and our fully qualified Dispensing Optician will talk you through the latest custom designed lenses. Don’t be fooled by the boutique style we take eyecare very seriously, using the very latest OCT (Ocular Coherence Tomography) 3D imaging system we can take not only photographs of the back of the eye but

HEALTH B EAUTY

GLOW ON A DETOX WITH BIKINI SEASON LOOMING, HOLLYWOOD NUTRITIONIST KIMBERLY SNYDER TELLS LISA HAYNES HOW TO GET GLOWING ON A BEAUTY DETOX.

I

t might feel as though we've only just ditched our winter coats, but bikini season is just around the corner. If the late onset of summer means you're still sporting dull, pasty skin and winter excess baggage on your body, look to your larder for a seasonal change of gear. As a Hollywood nutritionist and author of Beauty Detox Solution, Kimberly Snyder's philosophy is that you can eat your way to radiant skin and an enviable body - no faddy diets or silly fasts required. Having helped countless high-profile celebrities prepare for the red carpet, her quick fixes could transform you into a summer star too. "What we eat affects not only our weight and our overall health, but also our hair, skin and nails - all the features that make us beautiful. To unlock that beauty, one needs to cleanse from within," Snyder says. So head to the supermarket and stock up on ingredients for a beautiful summer. FOOD PHILOSOPHY Forget calorie and carb counting and look to the foods that affect how you look and feel. "e skin is our largest organ and functions like a mirror of what's going on inside the body," Snyder explains. "Fruits and vegetables have powerful minerals and enzymes that promote beauty from the inside out." e fibre-packed glowing green smoothie (see recipe below) is one of Snyder's beauty detox foundations. It's an easy way to incorporate a large amount of greens into your diet - just one serving contains more than three cups of dark leafy green vegetables, which is more than most people eat in a week. Snyder says: "All the nutrients and vitamins and minerals get into your system and the fibre cleans you out. Even if you don't change the rest of your diet and have this smoothie instead of your usual breakfast, this can make a real difference." A beauty detox is about making progress, not perfection, according to Snyder. She suggests starting off by drinking hot lemon and water in the mornings, swapping dairy cheese for goat's cheese, and if you can't resist chocolate, switch to good quality dark stuff. QUICK FIXES You won't wake up looking like a supermodel after a day of healthy eating but there are quick fixes to help kick-start your body beautiful mission. Snyder says: "If you're gearing up for summer there are speedy tricks to give you a boost but often people start to feel and look good and want to continue." She suggests aiming to consume the juice of two lemons a day, whether it's with water or squeezed onto salads or spinach: "Lemon supports your liver and has lots of vitamin C so it will assist with your beach body goals." Aim to order your meals light to heavy, throughout the day, avoiding a big lunch you will struggle to digest. If you're feeling bloated, drink natural cranberry concentrate an hour before bedtime, diluted with water. "A lot of people hold 'water weight', which makes you look puffy, especially if you consume a lot of salt," Snyder explains. "Cranberry concentrate makes your kidney push out the excess salts and water." Just a few tweaks to your daily diet and you should see results in as little as three days, according to Snyder: "e combination of losing the water weight and getting the energy from the glowing green smoothie - your skin starts to glow, your eyes look brighter, and extra weight starts to fall off."

HEALTH BEAUTY BEAUTY BOOSTERS Certain foods and ingredients have beautifying properties that you can incorporate into your everyday diet. Snyder recommends: ● Pumpkin seeds are a major beautifying food, as they are loaded with our beauty minerals zinc, calcium, potassium and magnesium, as well as B vitamins and collagen-repairing vitamin C and vitamin E. ● Lemon is an amazing cleanser with more than 200 enzymes. It is one of the most restorative foods for the liver. ● Parsley is rich in beauty vitamins A and C, folic acid and has flavonoids that act as antioxidants to help stop free radicals that can damage cells and speed up ageing. ● Turmeric is an ayurvedic spice that has amazing antioxidant properties. It inhibits oxidation and protects from free radical damage, and also helps clean up metabolic waste and supports the liver. ● Red peppers are bursting with vitamins A, C and K. e important antioxidant vitamins A and C help prevent cell damage and premature ageing, and reduce inflammation. ey can also help strengthen collagen, helping to reduce cellulite. GLOWING GREEN SMOOTHIE Snyder swears by the GGS (Glowing Green Smoothie) to really make a difference to your diet. "It's an amazing thing to do for summer and bikini season. You get a lot of energy and your skin starts to glow," she says. Here's how to make one using a blender: 500ml water ½ head of organic spinach 1 head organic romaine Juice of ½ organic lemon 3-4 sticks organic celery 1 organic banana 1 organic pear 1 organic apple Method Fill the blender with the water, spinach and romaine and blend until smooth. Add the celery, apple and pear and blend until smooth. Add the lemon juice and banana for the final blend and enjoy!

TIPS ON HOW TO GROW BOG PLANTS IN DAMP AND SOGGY GROUNDS BY HANNAH STEPHENSONISS

M

averick designer Diarmuid Gavin advised gardeners that they would have to roll with the weather to ensure their gardens survived and thrived the extremes. î&#x20AC;&#x20AC;at advice may prove useful to people who are looking out on yet another rainy day and wondering which plantings will withstand consistently soggy conditions and come to life in very wet soil.

Look at the positives of having a boggy site. Damp ground is a valuable wildlife habitat and there are plenty of plants which will thrive happily with wet feet, including bugle (Ajuga reptans), Siberian iris, lobelia, Arum lily and globeďŹ&#x201A;ower. As for trees, native willows and alder are at their happiest in damp conditions if you have plenty of space to plant them a safe distance from your house.

HO USE GARDEN

DOGWOOD

PRIMULA DENTICULATA

Quite a few perennials and shrubs will thrive, such as hostas (although be vigilant against slugs and snails) and Jerusalem sage (Pulmonaria saccharata), an evergreen with white spotted foliage and red, pink or white flowers that bloom from late winter to late spring, while the foam flower (Tiarella cordifolia) is a spreading perennial with spikes of creamy white. Popular shrubs which will tolerate a lot of water include many viburnums, dogwoods and spiraea. For those with big bog gardens which are wet throughout the winter and damp in summer, go for the enormous Gunnera manicata, which has dark green deciduous leaves spanning up to 2.5m (8ft) and provides a great backdrop for seasonal flowers. If you haven't much space, it may be better to plump for smaller specimens such as houttuynia and mimulus, which go well together. Another plant that boasts impressive foliage is the skunk cabbage (Lysichiton americanus), which grows 1m (3ft) high by 1.25m (4ft) wide. But try not to plant it too close to nose level, as its big yellow flowers have a striking odour. If you are creating a bog garden, bear in mind that bog plants look best in bold groups. Combine a good clump of foliage with some smaller, more colourful choices. For those who want more colour, astilbes love wet soil and produce delicate plumes in white, pink, mauve, red and crimson in summer. For a splash of green and yellow in spring, Euphorbia palustris is the one to go for, although beware of the milky sap which can irritate skin. Cowslips should also be included in your bog garden border. Among the best is the giant cowslip (primula florindae), which grows to around 1m (3ft) and carries stunning tubular pendant yellow scented flowers in summer. Another wonderful variety which is easily sown from seed is Primula denticulata, which bears beautiful flowerballs in lavender, cerise, mauve or white. And candelabra primulas are also bursting with colour in early summer, in a vast range of colours. For a tall, elegant perennial, try Ligularia przewalskii, which has 2m (6ft) high stems and produces spires of yellow flowers in mid to late summer.

JUNE2013

DESIGNED BY JINNY BLOM

If you want your colour scheme to last longer, plant some Rodgersia podophylla, which has creamy white flowers in the summer and leaves which change colour beautifully in the autumn. Remember that with plants which love soggy conditions, weed carefully as many of them will seed around the parents. If primulas do this, they have a tendency to produce a lot more colours. If you want your wet garden to look natural, plant around existing features such as logs or mossy tree stumps. And make sure you dig in plenty of organic matter to help them along. With a little imagination, you can soon reap the rewards of consistently wet soil and it should help stave off the misery of looking out at the rain. CHELSEA ROUND-UP Sustainability, protecting the planet and environmentally-sound practices were among the key themes running through the main show gardens at this year's RHS Chelsea Flower Show in its centenary year. While the subject of gnomes - allowed at Chelsea for the first time - brought some light-hearted relief to the event, there was less of the frivolous and quirky and more of what we need to do to protect our environment. Eco-friendly roof gardens, designs such as the B&Q Sentebale Forget-Me-Not Garden, backed by Prince Harry, a contemporary view of the tiny South African country Lesotho, contrasting the cutting-edge technology at our fingertips compared with the primitive facilities of Lesotho, and the stark message from Defra's Stop e Spread garden of the threat of diseases, pests and invasive non-native species to our land all had dramatic impact. Health also played its part, from Chris Beardshaw's Arthritis Research UK garden which represents the stages from diagnosis to managing the pain, to the SeeAbility garden, whose theme was sight loss. It was refreshing to see that many of the plantings are now easy to adapt to domestic gardens - involvement from retailers such as B&Q, Homebase and, for the first time, Marks & Spencer, ensure that the public will be able to buy at least some of the plants on display in their local stores.

FLOWER SHOW

So, what can ordinary gardeners take home from Chelsea this year? Roger Platts, who designed the M&G Centenary Garden DESIGNED BY ROGER PLATTS 'Windows rough Time', says he hopes gardeners can gain inspiration on how to blend contemporary with traditional, as he's doing in his own show garden, where formal box topiary sits happily with wilder planting. "If someone wants a little meadow in their garden with wild grasses and wild flowers, but they want contemporary planting as well, you can go from cultivated plants through to the wild seamlessly." Jinny Blom, who designed the B&Q Sentebale garden, loves the idea of growing ornamental veg in borders alongside flowers. "We've got to think about our stomachs a bit more and grow more veg at home. In most domestic gardens, our parents would have had veg as well as flowers. "We've gone through naturalism, we've gone through new perennials. I've seen enough masculine architectural stuff. "Now I have a veto on anything too complicated and too clever. When I first started my job, I loved all these really rare plants. I remember once planting some incredibly complicated and rare rose for somebody which flowered for about half an hour once a year and a friend of mine said, 'Why don't you just give them Rosa 'Iceberg', then they'll have flowers forever?' ey were right. Now I only use uncomplicated, sturdy, reliable plants. And I think that's the way it's going." BEST OF THE BUNCH - GUNNERA e spectacular leaves of the gunnera, or giant rhubarb, are among the sights to behold in the garden at this time of year, providing a show-stopping architectural spectacle as a stand-alone feature or a canopy for smaller, shade-loving specimens. All gunnera like bog gardens and plenty of food and water but not all of these perennials are as huge as the G. manicata, which reaches some 2.5m (8ft) or more within a season. For smaller spaces, there are some small, mat-forming gunneras growing to no more than 15cm (6in) tall, or for a medium-sized type look to G. tinctoria, whose pleated leaves make a bold impact, although it needs other large plants to keep it company.

e large-leaved varieties make fantastic architectural plants alongside streams or ponds - but are only really suitable for large gardens. ey make good plant partners with astilbes and other moisture lovers. Gunneras thrive in moist soil in the sun or partial shade in a sheltered position. eir crowns will need protecting in winter with a covering of the old leaves. THREE WAYS TO... DEAL WITH SEASONAL PESTS 1. Bright red lily beetles may be munching their way through your emerging lilies now. To control them, move the beetles and grubs (which are reddish brown) by hand or, as a last resort, spray plants with a contact insecticide and repeat if they reappear. 2. Aphids start multiplying in mid and late spring. Disperse them with a jet of water from a hose or pick them off, and encourage their natural predators such as ladybirds, lacewings and hoverflies by planting nectar-producing and pollen-rich plants such as the poached egg plant (Limnanthes douglasii). 3. Check under leaves for egg clusters left by moths and butterflies, which can be crushed with finger and thumb. Remove caterpillars when you notice them. GOOD ENOUGH TO EAT... SWEETCORN Sweetcorn plants should be almost hardened off and ready to plant outside, unless you live in a frost pocket, in which case leave them another week or two. Sweetcorn is usually grown in blocks of at least nine plants (three by three), which should ensure that pollen from the male flowers at the top of the plant reaches the female tassels which make the kernels. Put the plants 35cm apart to give you around two cobs per plant, although you may only get one. To save time on weeding, plant through a sheet mulch, which allows rain through. In July, when they start to flower, they will need a really good soaking regularly and later in the summer you will need to heap earth around the stems to stop windrock damage, as the cobs start to ripen. ey can be harvested when the tassels on the cobs start to shrivel ■

T

he bold, beautiful and luxurious scenery in e Great Gatsby is drawing as much attention as the glamorous stars of the new Hollywood blockbuster. Director Baz Luhrmann has recreated the lavish 1920s playground of the rich where the beautiful, upper-class Daisy is wooed by social climber Gatsby, and it's a riot of colour and opulence enhanced by 3D. e film's already made its mark beyond the screen by inspiring a revival of interest in art deco, with decor fans determined to 'jazz up' their interiors. Trends are created when they catch the mood of the moment and this elegant style perfectly suits our current desire for more decorative, styled homes, says Carole Brown, director of marketing for Dunelm Mill. "While being effortlessly chic, the geometric shapes, streamlining and clean lines characteristic of art deco enhance any setting," she says. "To do up a home in true Gatsby style, introduce elements of opulence with polished, mirrored furniture, silky fabrics and luxurious crystal lighting." ere's no room for fuss and clutter

when conjuring this look, says Marianne Shillingford, design director of Dulux Design Service. "e Great Gatsby-inspired scheme is grown-up and understated, with a subtle, sophisticated colour palette so it pays to have a light touch when trying to evoke it," she says. "e right backdrop and even just a few deco details will capture the atmosphere of this era." ere's no need to get in a 'flap' about decor - simply follow our guide to Gatsby glamour. SILVER SCREEN STYLE Painting walls in differing shades may seem, on the face of it, as unlikely a pairing as Daisy and Gatsby. But it can work. "Use colours which reflect dulled-off metallic hues of bronze and copper as well as richer caramels," says Rebecca ompson, colour and design manager for Dulux. "Set those against blue greys and charcoal, with a touch of pink and it will keep the style feminine and elegant." Gatsby Glitz: Dulux's Timeless range has shades to inspire, such as a deep grey Bowler Hat, £21.98 for 2.5 litres from B&Q online, a Natural Taupe 2 and a warm Caramel Blush 2. Both around £24.29 for 2.5 litres from various outlets. Farrow & Ball suggests a palette which includes green, a favoured choice of the era. Its Churlish Green could be complemented by a taupe Dove Tale or dark grey Down Pipe. All shades available in full gloss, £19.50 for 750ml, and the Estate Emulsion range, £34.50 for 2.5 litres.

An art deco-inspired Jazz Age wallpaper, £158 a roll from Wallpaper Direct, is in tune with the mood with a motif of piano keys, top hats and jazz dancers. RAZZLE-DAZZLE DECOR All smoke and mirrors could sum up the essence of this style, which evokes the glittering world of the 'bright young things' who danced to ragtime. "Baz Luhrmann's film highlights the more geometric and angular elements of 1920s decoration, which included the use of lots of chrome, mirrors and glass summing up the age of the silver screen," says Sarah Cole, director at Farrow & Ball. Polished furniture, wood and bronze craftsmanship will create a harmonious setting redolent of the visual luxury of the period. Gatsby Glitz: Dunelm Mill's Deco range of desirable mirrored furniture includes a Parisian four-drawer chest, £349.99. e Apartment collection at Isme is a snip with a console table and side table currently on offer online at £79 each and a coffee table, £159. Reflect light with decorative all-glass mirrors which are 'art' for walls. You're spoilt for choice at e Chandelier & Mirror Company, and its Foggia mirror, £495, is a classic in an art deco Venetian Sunburst style using more than 90 separate angled mirror pieces.

HOUSE GARDEN to use equal amounts," advises Marianne Shillingford at Dulux. "Touches of gold in details such as door handles can be echoed in fabrics, while tones of faceted silver, glass and chrome will add real glamour." Gatsby Glitz: Tom Faulkner has embraced art deco elegance with a geometric design Puzzle console table, from £2,999, coffee table, from £1,899, and mirror, from £999. A Sovereign chest embossed in a silver metal effect, £429 from Fishpools, could be a statement piece, or those who shy away from the femininity of this look could make a director's choice with an uber-stylish Magnum brown leather armchair featuring a chunky polished steel frame, £1,195 from Alexander & Pearl. STYLE STEALS Replicating this on-screen look in its entirety might not be to your taste - but flirting with it could be just the touch of frivolity needed to update a room and prove you're in tune with trends. A monochrome scheme is always suggestive of art deco and pristine white walls with some signature pieces of furniture will endure long beyond the hype of the movie. Create a stylish dining area with a sleek dining table and monochrome chairs. Furniture Village's Caxton Rio upholstered chair, currently £199, and its

angular Silver Dragon dining table, currently £1,249, could pair well. Chandeliers are synonymous with glamour and Laura Ashley's collection includes the Allegra tiered chandelier with layers of glass droplets which would look at home in any Hollywood mansion. A medium size is £700. Don't overlook small details such as lamps, which can reflect a look. A Tiffany-style handcrafted Waltz Novelty lamp, £56 from QVC, decorated with a sensual dancer's silhouette, could provide an eye-catching element. A gilded Empire State table lamp, with black shade, £99 from Dwell, celebrates the later 1930s architecture of New York's Empire State Building. Make a feature on a table by displaying black and brass-lined bowls, from £59 from BoConcept. Gatsby Glitz: Prove your passion for Gatsby with a poster which has the entire 47,094 words of the novel words arranged to create an image of characters Daisy and Jay standing at opposite ends of a grand staircase. e Great Gatsby poster, £29.95 from Prezzybox. Alternatively, e Great Gatsby poster, £10.95 from e Literary Gift Company, replicates one used on the novel's cover ■

THREE CHEERS FOR THESE SPEARS

T

he British asparagus season is in full swing, but hurry - there's just six weeks left until it's off the shelves. Keeley Bolger unearths TV chef Marcus Bean's top tips for making the most of this special vegetable. Like love, a perfectly brewed cup of tea and the next series of Downton Abbey, some things in life are worth the wait. And they include British asparagus. With a season spanning roughly eight weeks a year and ending in late June, British asparagus is a flighty friend. So flighty that you may be flummoxed as to what to do with these lean, green shoots. But before you resign yourself to another helping of fail-safe broccoli, TV chef Marcus Bean has plenty of top 'tips'. "I love asparagus. e possibilities are endless," he says. "It's just about knowing a few recipes to make the most of it." Self-taught cook Bean rose to prominence in 2010 when he won Channel 4's culinary competition Iron Chef UK. Today, he's a regular on ITV daytime programme is Morning and often serves up dishes to hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip

Schofield - including a recent asparagus and rocket salad. Bean has teamed up with the British Asparagus campaign in a bid to encourage more of us to enjoy the home-grown delicacy, and has handed over some of his favourite recipes celebrating the humble spears. But with the clock ticking, he's eager for everybody to snap up a bunch while we can. "It's such a long process to cultivate our asparagus but when it's right, it's just so good and so healthy that it's a shame not to eat it," says Bean, who lives in Shropshire with his wife Jenny and two asparagus-loving daughters. Bean says: "To get your kids to eat asparagus, try chopping it into little pieces and sauteing it with other veg. My kids love having them as soldiers with dippy eggs instead of toast." While the fruits of the British asparagus growers' labour may only be around for a limited period, Bean thinks that it's a pity for us to turn to cheaper imports. "ere's such a massive difference in quality between the Peruvian asparagus you can get all year round here and the British asparagus that you can only get for a short time," he says.

MARCUS BEAN ADDING FINISHING TOUCHES

"Asparagus is one thing we do really well as a country. Someone sent me a message the other day saying that they went to the supermarket and British asparagus was right next to the Peruvian asparagus, only the Peruvian one was priced a lot cheaper. "We don't want to get to a point where people buy foreign asparagus which is of a lesser quality but cheaper. at means that the farmers will be priced out of the market and won't grow it over here, which is a real shame." For Bean, who often crops up to do cookery demos at the BBC Good Food roadshows around the country, the beauty in asparagus lies in its versatility. "My favourite way of cooking it is to have it chargrilled," says Bean. "Blanch it in some boiling water for about 30 seconds to one minute max, pop it out and put it in some ice water to keep the colour. en just chargrill it in the pan. "Or you can just bang it on the barbecue. Give it a quick brush with some oil first then stick it on. Be careful not to overcook it otherwise you lose that lovely green colour. Or you could have it blanched or steamed. Or with butter and wild garlic. It's making me hungry thinking about it!"

A GROWN-UP EVENING WITH HARTNETT, HOLDER & CO AT THE LIME WOOD

'Desserts to dine for'

ust a few minutes from the hubbub of Lyndhurst (well as much hubbub as a New Forest village can muster) we found ourselves cutting along the Beaulieu Road and through the verdant heath land dotted with four-legged wildlife. We turned right at the second donkey (not shown on SatNav), headed up the long sweeping gravel road and crunched our way up the gentle approach until our destination hove into view; the magnificent Lime Wood. e hotel no doubt gets its name from the nearby civil parish; Lyndhurst is Old English and translates as “wooded hill growing with Lime trees” and the imposing facade still retained the aura of a Regency country manor house. Expecting the usual congestion along the M27 and A337 we were pleasantly surprised by the lack of traffic and arrived with plenty of time, so made our way to the bar for a drink or three. A few sharpeners later (non-alcoholic for me as I had insisted on driving even though it was my birthday - schoolboy error) we were shown through to the airy and welcoming dining room. Being huge fans of e Pig in Brockenhurst, we hoped that, being from the same group, the standards would be as high at the Lime Wood. We were not disappointed. e staff where charming throughout, from the young valet that met us as we pulled up outside Reception to the enthusiastic and erudite dining room staff. e young French sommelier was extremely helpful and guided my wife expertly through the impressive wine list while I quaffed my table water! What was I thinking? We were lucky enough to be sat in the large bay window with views out across the beautiful grounds and onto the Forest vista itself. While we enjoyed the view and mulled over the menu, a delightful array of home-pickled beetroot, carrot and capers accompanied by three smoked meats from the Hotel’s own Smokehouse arrived and were suitably dispatched. ankfully the menu was perfect for providing enough choice without swamping us with options. Il Tavolo Della Cucina, created by Lime Wood’s Head Chef Luke Holder and Michelin-starred chef Angela Hartnett MBE, gives the fine diner a mouth-watering choice of English dishes that are sourced from local, organic produce and ‘forest food’ from the doorstep with an influence from the Italian philosophy of La Bella Figura. Decisions, decisions. 60

'Fishing for compliments' Alison opted for white asparagus with burnt butter and shrimp while I chose Black Bream ceviche. I’m a big fan of sashimi but had never tried raw fish marinated in lime. ree words – meaty, zingy, delicious. For mains we had Guinea Fowl, Rainbow Chard and Shallots and Fillet Steak, stewed Spring Onions and Black Garlic. I say we had because our relationship is at that stage where I know that whatever I order, Alison will have to try it, which usually means that she prefers my choice and invariably swaps. I gave up fighting years ago. To be fair there was no fight to be had, both mains were rich, mouth-watering and perfectly cooked. e portions were just large enough that we were nearly full yet still able to squeeze in a dessert and I mean squeeze. Alison fell for the Pear and Almond Torte, which by her own admission was the best she had ever tasted. Her only disappointment was the addition of crème fraîche as opposed to bright yellow, artery-furring, clotted cream. e phrase ‘e Moon on a stick’ comes to mind. e tangfastic lemon dessert was my downfall. A dreamy, yellow creamy topping on a bed of lemon curd with salted oats. It was wonderfully sharp and sweet in equal measure and my taste buds were excited from the first spoonful. I’m actually salivating as I write this. It was a great meal, served by genuinely enthusiastic, bubbly and friendly staff, in a relaxed 5 Star venue. e only complaint I have is that we are now vexed over which venue to choose next time. e Pig or Lime Wood, Pig or Lime Wood. Oh the agony of choice. www.limewoodhotel.co.uk ■ Paul Griffin

THIRSTY WORK FANCY A DRINK? OUR DRINKS COLUMNIST SAM WYLIE-HARRIS LOOKS BACK TO THE ROARING TWENTIES FOR SOME GATSBY INSPIRED COCKTAILS. ALL THAT JAZZ With the long-awaited adaptation of e Great Gatsby hitting the silver screen, cocktail hour beckons as we revisit the glamour and decadence of the 1920s. is popular American import was born out of the Prohibition Era (1920-1933) when alcoholic beverages were banned and ultimately gave rise to speakeasies and bootleggers. Both prospered behind closed doors, and illicit spirits (masked by other ingredients) were served to bright young things against the sultry sounds of jazz music. In tune with flapper dresses and the splendour of art deco, this fashionable drinking culture spread across the pond with 'American Bars' popping up in London and Paris. Almost 100 years on, our thirst for these indulgent concoctions is at an all-time high, and cocktails continue to be associated with opulence and a touch of theatre. For a good measure of razzmatazz, Gatsby Cocktails - Classic Cocktails From e Jazz Age (£6.99, published by Ryland Peters & Small, available from all good book shops) will inspire budding mixologists with its illustrations and cocktail shaker bookmark. Ice at the ready, here are a couple of recipes to try at home. With its art deco lines and tall frame, Tanqueray Gin No. 10 (£31.75, 70cl, www.thewhiskyexchange.com) certainly looks the part and this sweet and subtle premium gin will add a hint of juniper to this fizzy favourite. Royal Gin Fizz 50ml Tanqueray Gin No. 10, 25ml fresh lemon juice, one barspoon white sugar (or 12.5ml sugar syrup), one egg white, 62

food drink champagne or sparkling wine Half fill a shaker with ice. Add the egg white, gin, lemon juice and sugar. Shake vigorously, strain into a highball glass filled with ice and top up with champagne (if you're feeling flamboyant), or sparkling wine. An American institution, the martini comes in many guises and for purists, there's no such thing as ordering 'a martini.' Gin or vodka, dry, dirty or wet, shaken or stirred... why not go smoky for a change and add a dash of whisky to this iconic cocktail? Indeed, Johnnie Walker Black Label (£24.75, 70cl, www.thewhiskyexchange.com) blends signature smoky malt with moderate toffee and rich fruitcake for an interesting variation. Smoky Martini 50ml of your preferred gin, 1 dash dry vermouth, 1 dash Johnnie Walker Black Label, lemon zest Half-fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add the ingredients and shake vigorously. Strain into a chilled martini glass and coat the rim with lemon-zest. Alternatively, why not embrace the trend for using tea in cocktails which is currently all the rage with bartenders? Complex and aromatic, but smooth enough for a martini, try infusing Sipsmith London Dry Gin (£27.75, 70cl, Waitrose) with the Rare Tea Company's Silver Tip Jasmine Tea (£6.75, 25g tin, www.rareteacompany.com). A white tea scented with freshly picked jasmine blossoms, the gentle flavours perfectly complement Sipsmith's floral notes. To begin, decant the gin into a jug and

add 25g of tea. Leave the dry leaves to steep for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Strain immediately through a fine tea strainer, leaving not a hint of tea-leaf in the gin and decant back into the bottle. is will keep indefinitely, so here is a decadent and carefree cocktail to get the toes tapping and imbibe the essence of Gatsby while it remains in the spotlight. Silver Tip Martini 60ml Jasmine Silver Tip gin Half-fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add the gin and shake gently until nicely cold (the ice cubes will slightly dilute the gin). Pour purposefully into a chilled coupette and garnish with a lemon twist. Hotels such as e Tabard Inn, Washington DC which opened its doors in 1922 are still going strong, and its drinks menu harks back to e Golden Age of Cocktails. Here's a sophisticated sipper using Drambuie (£25.50, 70cl, major supermarkets) Scottish liqueur, and the honeyed sweetness, spice and heathery notes should cause quite a stir when mixed with a smooth reposado and rich, dark sherry. e Tabard 44ml reposado tequila, 15ml amontillado sherry, 15ml Drambuie, dash of orange bitters Half-fill a mixing glass with ice. Add the ingredients, stir gently and strain into a chilled martini glass. Twist orange peel over the drink to release its oils, float it on top, then top with a sprig of fresh thyme. With all the right ingredients to pay homage to the Prohibition Era when corn whiskey was a favourite 'moonshine' product, Bootlegger (£36.50, 70cl,

www.harrods.com) is a white grain spirit with no minimum maturation period. Sweet and spicy with a short, slightly raw finish, it can be sipped neat over ice, or mixed in a cocktail to thrill gangsters and molls.

e Capone 50ml Bootlegger, 15ml Grand Marnier, 30ml sugar syrup, 2 dashes bitters, 15ml fresh lemon juice, splash of champagne or sparkling wine Half fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add Bootlegger, Grand Marnier, bitters, lemon juice and sugar syrup. Shake vigorously and strain into a large chilled coupette. Top with champagne or sparkling wine to float, and garnish with a raspberry. Launched this month, e Macallan Amber (£44.95, 70cl, www.harrods.com) is part of e Macallan 1824 Series of single malts with no age statement apart from the colour. Citrus and vanilla notes mingle with raisins, sultanas and toffee apple and the fruity, full-bodied flavour works like a dream in this classic cocktail recipe. One of the few to use Scotch whisky instead of bourbon or rye, it's inspired by Rudolph Valentino's 1922 silent film of the same name. Blood and Sand 25ml e Macallan Amber, 25ml sweet vermouth, 25ml cherry liqueur, 25ml freshly squeezed orange juice Half fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add the ingredients and shake vigorously. Strain into a chilled glass and garnish with a brandied cherry on a cocktail stick. Chin chin!

GALLARDO

50

years of the luxury that is Lamborghini

2013 marks the 50th Anniversary of Lamborghini. The company’s history is one of challenges and uncontested records, set by its founder, Ferruccio Lamborghini, who decided to create the world’s most beautiful, and powerful super sports cars. erruccio Lamborghini was born in 1916, this capable, impetuous, strong-willed Taurus was the leading character in the foundation of the company and the early phases of its extraordinary history. Ferruccio was a very wealthy man, following World War II, he founded his tractor factory, but by the early 1960s, Lamborghini knew exactly what he wanted... to build a super sports car to compete with Ferrari. Constructing that kind of car was viewed by others as an unexplainable extravagance, and something that would squander his fortune without ever turning a profit. But Lamborghini had done his homework, and started working on his project in 1962, and by May 1963 he had already founded ‘Automobili Ferruccio Lamborghini’, buying land in Sant’Agata Bolognese, to build a large ultramodern factory. The first model was naturally put out quickly, for its official presentation at the Turin Auto Show in November 1963. The debut of the Lamborghini in a narrow but fiercely competitive market – shared until

F

then by Ferrari, Maserati, Aston Martin and Jaguar – certainly created a stir. Sceptics seriously doubted Lamborghini’s ability, but those who knew him well simply commented: “wait and see, because Lamborghini knows what he’s doing.” In 1964, the body’s first design was redone completely to make it more attractive to the public, and he thus turned to the famous Milan-based Carrozzeria Touring. The changes made created a line that became a classic: original but without being extreme. The 350 GT was born. The speedy two-seater Berlinetta had everything to attract customers. Lamborghini, the tireless promoter of his own company, did not hesitate to go about with his creation to show it off to the world. The immediate and almost inevitable offshoot of the 350 GT, was the 400 GT. Its engine was increased to a four-litre model and it featured the first gearbox designed in-house by Lamborghini.
