Hello Welcome to Your Move, with all the property news you need to make a summer move. From city centre pads to rent, to suburban hideaways and even a luxury six bedroom detached property in South Liverpool to buy, we’ve sourced the hottest properties across the city. Rising numbers of sales have been keeping agents busy, and in Hot Topic we look at why ARLA registered agents can provide peace of mind for landlords. Jonathan Kearney interviewed 80s’ TV favourite Timmy Mallett about his passion for art, and our stylist has put together some of the summer’s brightest trends on pages 65 and 67. For all the latest property news and photos, visit www.yourmovemagazine.com.

A NEW MILLER HOME WITH NO DEPOSIT TO PAY CARL HARRISON and his partner Kerie Mochan are one of the first HomeBuy Direct (HBD) customers in the country. With the help of Miller Homes and the Government backed scheme they have managed to secure their new dream home. Carl is the Site Manager at Miller Homes’ Orchard Green development and heard about the new HomeBuy Direct scheme while working on site. Carl says: “I saw the posters advertising the scheme and had a chat with the Sales Consultants to see if it would be something that I could apply for. It really grabbed my attention, particularly as there was no deposit to pay, as this is included in the percentage that Miller Homes pays for you.” The Homebuy Direct scheme works by giving buyers that qualify the opportunity to purchase 100% of their home by paying 70% of the value now, with Miller Homes and the Government equally funding the remaining 30%. This 30% equity loan will only become repayable after 25 years or when the customer sells their home,

whichever comes first. Another huge bonus of the scheme is that there is no interest payable on the 30% equity loan for the first five years. Without the Homebuy Direct Scheme, Carl and Kerie and their two children, 5 year old Finlay and 20 month old Oliver, would not have been able to buy a new home. Carl says: “It’s as simple as this. If we had not qualified for the HBD we would be living Miller Homes Sales Consultant, Kerry Wilson with Carl, Kerie, Oliver and Finley outside their new home in a two bedroom terrace house with a back yard.

Poets Park appeals The Regenda Group is to assist first time buyers in key regeneration areas of the city as part of a government backed scheme.

POETS PARK DEVELOPMENT

A new development of two bedroom apartments and townhouses between Great Homer Street and Scotland Road is reviving the northern gateway to the city. The Poets Park development, part of the Project Jennifer regeneration scheme, is offering affordable properties to single people, couples and families who wish to move into the up and coming area. A shared equity scheme, backed by Halifax, is allowing buyers to cover their mortgage repayments and life insurance

for as little as £460 per month. A legal package is also being provided by Liverpool firm of solicitors Goldsmith Williams. A number of properties at the site are currently occupied, and developer Braidwater will be back on site this month, to finish a further eight within three months. The properties include eight two bedroom apartments with parking and eight two bedroom townhouses with gardens and parking space included. Farnham, chief executive of Bradshaw Farnham & Lea, and

now Venmores, commented: “It’s a great deal for buyers, as the area is really accessible for the hospitals and universities, and it’s an opportunity to move into a brand new property for as little as £460 per month. To rent something akin to one of these properties would normally cost around £550 per month, so there are savings to be made. “It’s also really good news that the mortgage market is once again opening up.” For more information contact Bradshaw Farnham & Lea on 0151 632 5901.

With ‘Access to Home Ownership’, the housing association will be hosting one hour sessions to assist first time buyers through the home buying process. The scheme will also finance some of the initial fees involved in buying a house. Ross Cope, project officer for Access to Home Ownership, commented: “The recession has had a devastating effect on many people, with some finding themselves in a difficult position to purchase their first home. This is an excellent free service with local sessions that can make a real difference to

people’s lives.” The access team will be available to offer guidance through the home buying process and provide an understanding of the associated jargon during the free sessions. Key regeneration areas of Liverpool include Lodge Lane, Kensington and Anfield. Residents are invited to sessions in their local area, with no appointment necessary. For further information on Access to Home Ownership, telephone 0151 432 5200, or visit www.accesstohomeownership. org.uk.

Helping hand at Church Walk Bovis Homes are offering new builds in Wallasey for 70 per cent of the full asking price. The housebuilder has teamed up with the government to fund the remaining 30 per cent on properties at the new Church Walk development. As part of the HomeBuy Direct shared equity scheme, two, three, four and five bedroom homes are available with the assistance of a 25 year equity loan. To those eligible, an £89,995 two bedroom property at Church Walk is available for £62,997, with the balance loaned by Bovis and the government. Kate Burrow, sales director for Bovis Homes’ northern area, commented: “HomeBuy Direct is a great way for firsttime buyers, or perhaps those in social or privately rented homes, to benefit from the current market conditions and get themselves onto the property ladder. Over time it’s hoped buyers may be in a position to purchase the full 100 per cent of the home. Alternatively, they can re-pay the loan when they re-sell the property, or after 25 years.” For further information, contact the sales team at Church Walk on 0845 260 1828, or visit www.bovishomes.co.uk/home buydirect.

Hot Topic //// ISSUES AFFECTING YOU

With government plans to establish a monitored and accountable rental sector, regulated agents are leading the way for landlords in the city.

The professionals

In a move that went relatively unnoticed amidst the furore of the expenses scandal, the government recently published proposals to change the way the private rental sector is managed. These proposals, which include plans to introduce licensing for all landlords and the regulation of all lettings agents, came in light of the Rugg review, a report into the private rental sector undertaken by the Centre for Housing Policy at the University of York. Some critics believe the move, which 38 Your Move

is forecast to cost billions to implement, would tie up the sector in red tape and bureaucracy. Supporters suggest compulsory regulation is long overdue and would root out rogue elements in the industry. SETTING THE STANDARD ARLA, the Association of Residential Lettings Agents, was established in 1981 as the professional and regulatory body for lettings agents in the UK. The organisation was founded on the premise

that the requirements of residential lettings markets were so detailed and specific that a separate organisation was required to promote standards in the ever growing sector. ARLA now has 3,500 member offices throughout the UK, with membership granted on the proviso that agents demonstrate a thorough knowledge of their profession and conduct best management practice. The association is able to measure this by the courses and qualifications it provides to agents.

BEST FOR BUSINESS Pat Bradley, Allerton Road office manager at Castle Estates, is in no doubt that the introduction of ARLA qualifications have been a valuable asset to the business: â&#x20AC;&#x153;The ARLA qualifications our staff have achieved offer a real opportunity for the business and for their careers. One of our staff members received a distinction in the qualification, which is fantastic, and makes her a real asset when dealing with landlords and tenants. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For the team, it gives them

knowledge and confidence to deal with any problems that arise such as disputes or rent arrears, and ARLA sends us updates on the law and acts as a good backup for advice. As Castle Estates is a franchise, we sometimes call through to the Milton Keynes office where Mike Edwards is a great support in those kinds of issues.” Belvoir director Adam Rastall believes his firm’s links to ARLA illustrate good business practice at the agents West Derby office. Adam said: “We decided to take the ARLA qualifications because they offer valuable peace of mind for landlords and tenants. The training ensures that all lettings staff follow the correct procedures in all circumstances, for example if a landlord needs to reclaim a property from a tenant, by sending out the right documentation. Our clients know that we’ll be operating within the law and will do everything we can to help them if something goes wrong. Building a rapport is so important in this industry, and ARLA puts the emphasis onto good business practice and transparency. With many new lettings agents opening up of late, having something additional to offer landlords and tenants makes you stand out.” COMMITMENT TO LANDLORD CLIENTS The sentiment among member agents is that the ARLA connection is a reassuring sign to landlords and tenants alike. Louis Anastasiou, managing director of Andrew Louis, was amongst the first agents on Merseyside to become ARLA registered, back in 1992. Louis commented: “Residential letting and property management has always been a highly skilled business and we recognised early on that becoming a member would reassure our landlords and tenants that they were in safe hands. Andrew Louis’ bonded membership of ARLA means we follow a Code of Practice in all aspects of our business. Our clients’ money is

held securely in a separate client account in accordance with ARLA’s strict requirements, and tenants’ deposits are held in an ARLA-backed insurance based Tenancy Deposit Scheme”. ASK AN EXPERT For landlords or would-belandlords keen to find out more ARLA accredited lettings agents, the Merseyside Landlords Expo ’09 on 10 September will have more than 50 leading companies exhibiting at the newly refurbished Floral Pavilion in New Brighton. Private sector, accredited lettings professionals from across Merseyside will be on hand to talk about how they can serve landlords’ needs at the event organised by NewHeartlands and supported by the six local borough councils. Special guest at the event, Sarah Walker from the BBC ‘To Buy or Not to Buy’ programme, will also be answering questions alongside a panel of experts – dealing with everything from health and safety issues to tax. For more details visit www.merseysidelandlordsexpo. com, where you can download your free tickets, book a seminar and register for email updates. FINANCIAL SECURITY FOR LANDLORDS Mark Duffy of Marx Insurance commented: “If you’re a landlord looking to rent out a

property, it is often cheaper to go straight to an independent insurance broker you trust, and who is FSA registered. If you’re choosing to go through your property management company or letting agent, look for one who is ARLA accredited and registered with the FSA or has an appointed representative from a particular insurance firm. This means that they’re qualified to offer you the best advice about insurance. Not all ARLA accredited agents will be qualified to talk to you about insurance, but many of them are, and they’re more likely to be honest with you about whether they can provide you that service or not. If a firm isn’t a member of ARLA, then it’s unlikely to be registered with the FSA and unable to provide that specialist service you require.” AN INFORMED CHOICE With more lettings agents opening to take advantage of the rental sector’s resurgence, it’s becoming increasingly important for landlords to know that their letting agent and property management company is offering the best customer service. In a competitive market, it’s the better qualified, fully registered agents with a wealth of knowledge and experience who’ll be best equipped and who’ll, ultimately, reap the benefits conjoined to best practice.

House prices on the up National average house prices rose 0.9 per cent in June, the third increase in four months. Figures released by the Nationwide Building Society showed that the average value of a UK home now stands at £156,442. The data also revealed the three month rate of change turned positive for the first time since December 2007. Martin Gahbauer, Nationwide’s chief economist, commented: “If the pattern of price movements seen in the first half of the year is repeated over the second half, then prices could show only a small single digit fall for 2009 as a whole. This would represent a stark shift from trends seen at the turn of the year, when most indicators were pointing to a repeat of the large declines seen in 2008.”.

Miller Homes are currently piloting a prime time TV advertising in the North East to promote their shared equity schemes.

We are now on target to sell around 250 properties by the end of June – an exceptional performance in any market conditions. Our focus now is to step up the build programme.”

Eligible buyers are able to snap up a range of properties at Connaught Green under the HomeBuy Direct scheme. Buyers pay just 70 per cent of the property value, with the remaining 30 per cent provided in the form of an equity loan over 25 years. For further information call 0800 840 8526, or email connaughtgreen@miller.co.uk.

Julia Casimo

Entrepreneurs’ tax relief – the problem with rental The office and accounts manager Cara Bailey, City Residential Cara Bailey, office and accounts manager at City Residential, took a detour from studying sports development to discover her flair for property. Cara has been thriving in the city centre office now for five years. How did you get into property? I was working at a sandwich shop opposite the City Residential offices whilst finishing off a university course in sports development. People from the City Residential office came in for lunch. I discovered that there were job vacancies available. I applied for a job as office junior, but only did it for a week before I was moved to the lettings side of the company as a property manager. How has your role progressed? Six months later I was promoted to lettings advisor, and then began to do accounts for the lettings department. I now manage accounts for the whole company and have been promoted to office manager. I also run the furnishings side of the business which includes interior design of apartments for sale or let, as we are able to provide full packs for landlords, investors, first time buyers or serviced apartments. What would be on your summer wish list? I would love some air tickets for my boyfriend and I to jet off to Cyprus or Egypt. It would be great to get a tan, enjoy the sun, sea, and sip some strawberry Daiquiri cocktails whilst sampling the nightlife!

Q. I own a successful retail business, trading as a limited company, which I am planning to sell in a few years time. The properties which the business uses are owned personally by me, and the business pays me rent. I was banking on only paying 10% tax when I sold the business and properties but someone has told me the rules have changed. What is the position? A. When the Chancellor originally announced the New Entrepreneurs’ relief in early 2008, the rules contained a number of important differences from the old ‘Taper Relief’ regime. One of those related to property (usually land and buildings, but also occasionally plant and machinery) held outside the business. Under the old Taper relief rules, subject to all other conditions being met, disposal of these assets would attract tax of only 10% even if they had been let to the business throughout the period of ownership at full market rent. Holding assets in this way and charging rent became a common set-up because it minimised tax through the life of the business and also eventually upon its disposal. This changed in April 2008, because the new Entrepreneurs’ Relief regime treats such assets as ‘investments’, i.e. owned personally and let at full market rent by the owner, which means they no longer qualify for relief.

Q. Is there anything I can do now to improve my position? A. Potentially yes. The new rule is that that if a property is let to the business for rent then only the rent paid on or after the 6 April 2008 will be taken into account and also the extent to which the rent paid falls short of the full market rent will also be taken into consideration in the calculations. In your case, if the property will be sold at the same time as the business and you will not utilise your £1million Entrepreneur’s Relief limit against the business itself, then you may need to stop charging rent as soon as possible. You should speak to your accountant or tax advisor as soon as possible – as always good advice will be critical to optimise your position.

As with many decisions you really do need to take independent financial and tax advice. If you would like our help call Julia on 0151 228 8977 at John Kerr Chartered Accountants 369-375 Eaton Road, West Derby, Liverpool L12 2AH. Authorised and regulated by The Financial Services Authority

//// YOUR VIEWS ON BIG ISSUES

“Yes, I think it will stop students from moving out at 18. My sister will be going to university soon and she is now considering staying at home in Liverpool and living at home rather than moving out due to the rising costs. We may not see an impact this September, but over the course of the next few months it’s quite probable that we’ll begin to see more and more students opting to stay at home, affecting landlords in the longer term.” “Perhaps. I chose to move away for university as the course I wanted to do was at Leeds, but if costs continue to rise then many students will be deterred. This will have a negative impact on not just the student housing market but on the job market, as bright but less well off students won’t be able to pursue graduate level careers, affecting social mobility. The Labour government conveniently forgets their own university educations were paid for by the taxpayer.”

Will rising fees stop students moving out? As tuition fees rise but student grants and borrowing remains fixed, will the shortfall of funds have a negative impact on the student housing market?

“No. If students can’t afford the rentals commanded due to a drop in income, we may see the return of the landlord parent. This produces an improvement in property sales as well as offering potential management opportunities for agents. The less savoury landlords are then eased out; a development which should be positively welcomed.”

“No, I think that the squeeze on student’s finances may have a positive effect on the housing market in Liverpool. As the pool of students that ‘go away’ to University inevitably becomes smaller, all things being equal, Liverpool will represent a value for money alternative to further education in more expensive cities, particularly to parents.”

“Yes, definitely. Many students in Liverpool’s universities are from the city, and they move into student properties in the city centre or suburbs just a matter of a mile away from their parents’ homes. With rising costs, they’re unlikely to continue being able to do this. With a £40,000 student debt after finishing their course, which could take them the rest of their career to pay off, it’s also likely to affect the first time buyer market.”

Dealing with the mortgage company first. There are some things that you can do if you are in trouble paying your mortgage. There are various guidelines which have been produced and the lender is expected to comply with these guidelines. If the lender does not comply, or is otherwise unreasonable in pursuing a possession claim then you can tell the Court about this. In addition, most lenders have agreed with the government not to bring possession proceedings unless the mortgage is at least three months in arrears. However, this does not apply to all mortgages and does not apply to all lenders. You should try and negotiate with the lender to come to an arrangement for the payment of any outstanding arrears as soon as possible. The lender is under an obligation to

Movers What attracted you to Montreal Gardens? My sister showed me the house. She lives in the development and she’s really happy here. We’ve been living with Mike’s mum in Kensington for the last two years but really wanted a place of our own. It’s nice to be in our own new build.

Tell us about the master bedroom... We have magnolia coloured walls and cream carpets which are consistent with the rest of the house. There are featured pictures on one of the walls, my favourite of which is the landscape of trees we bought from Matalan. Any plans for the spare rooms? The smaller room is where I do all my ironing so I suppose it’s a sort of utility room! We’re planning to turn it into a nursery when we have kids. The other room is for anyone who stays.

What do you think of the house? We looked at older properties first but they needed such a lot of work doing and loads of money spending on them. Everything is pretty much the way we want it here. How is the ground floor laid out? As you enter through the hallway the kitchen is on the left and the living room is to the right hand side. Ahead of you is the downstairs WC. Do you have any outdoor space? We have patio doors leading to quite a big garden at the back. We’ve got a lot of space to work with, so my partner is going to put in decking and a rockery area. At the front there are bark chippings and a small lawn.

First time buyers Sam Foley, 22, and Mike Benson, 25, recently moved to a three bedroom end terrace property in the Montreal Gardens development in North Huyton. Sam, a hairdresser, and Mike, a council refuse worker, secured the house through Gleeson Homes’ shared equity deal – paying 75 per cent of the property value up front, with the remainder secured by a 10 year equity loan.

And the bathroom? The bathroom has a stone effect wall and floor tiles with lovely white units. There’s a bath, shower, toilet, sink and a black mosaic mirror we bought in IKEA.

What’s in the living room? We have a black coffee table from the Look Again catalogue and a 42 inch plasma screen TV with full surround sound. Our two black couches from the Empire Stores catalogue are probably my favourite items in the house.

Take us into the kitchen... It’s a fully fitted kitchen, with black flooring and work surfaces, wooden units and a nice chrome sink.

What would be your dream buy? I’m not too sure about that as I think we have everything we need! I think a wet room would be nice though.

What’s your theme? Orange and black are the predominant colours in the living room. We’ve got a large black vase with big orange flowers on it. On one wall we’ve hung a picture of a lake and the other features a photograph of black and white boats, so it’s got a bit of a waterside theme.

Timmy Mallett Interview //// TALENT IN THE CITY

For the majority of those who grew up in the ‘80s, the loud shirts and wacky antics of Timmy Mallett will be entrenched in their minds forever. The ‘Wacaday’ presenter was the main attraction for young viewers during their summer holidays, and even managed to secure a place at the top of the charts with an infamous song about a polka dot bikini. Years later he was thrust back into the national consciousness with an appearance on ‘I’m a Celebrity...Get Me out of Here!” and now the man with the mallet is in Liverpool to raise funds, and the roof, for the disability charity Children Today.

“I’d love to do a panto at the Liverpool Empire. That would be my dream venue to perform.” 52 Your Move

yourmovemagazine.com Interview by Jon Kearney

Mallett’s

palette What brings you to the city? I’ll be up to host ‘It’s a Knockout’ at the Riversdale Police Club to raise funds for Children Today. It’s a fun game if you don’t mind getting soaking wet and covered in foam. My role will be the wielder of the mallet. I was there last year and I’m thrilled to bits to be doing it again. It’s guaranteed to be a day of good fun. Tell us a little about the charity... I’ve been involved with them for 18 months and I’m very impressed by their dynamism. What I like about them is that they help kids straight away and they focus on what’s needed now. The children need any help they can get and it was great that I could raise £20,000 for them when I was doing ‘I’m a Celebrity’. Do you like getting out and about around the country? I love it. Whether it’s doing a show, something for charity, or hosting an art exhibition,

I feel that I’m a very lucky man because I get to travel all over. In fact my many trips are where I find the inspiration for my art. You’ve developed a growing reputation as an artist. How long have you been painting? I’ve always loved art. I used to take the paints on Wacaday but now I can put a bit more time and effort into it. That doesn’t mean I’m a bore with it, I can just give it a bit more focus. I held a recent exhibition of my acrylics and water colours in Essex which was really enjoyable and I’ve got another exhibition coming up in Eccleston. People don’t often realise that I’m an artist. Is painting a way to relax? No, I don’t find it relaxing. It’s a lot of hard work and all about concentrating the mind to make sure you’ve got it right. These things don’t necessarily come easy. Who’s your inspiration? Rolf Harris and I are good

mates. We speak on an almost daily basis. In fact, his is the next call I’ll make today before he goes off to play at Glastonbury. Which entertainers do you admire at the moment? CBBC have a number of great shows and I like a lot of the double acts such as ‘Dick and Dom’ and ‘JK and Joel’. We’ve got a lot of new talent coming though and we should encourage it. What’s been the highlight of your career? I think ‘Itsy Bitsy’ getting to number one was pretty amazing and I also love the fact that my paintings are so warmly received. What’s been your most memorable moment in television? Bashing Margaret Thatcher with the mallet has to be up there. I met her when she was prime minister and she reached for the mallet and asked, “What does this do?” I just let her have it. What was the jungle experience like? I enjoyed it. I love the great outdoors. The deprivation is quite entertaining. You do get hungry and tired but that’s the easy bit. The hardest part is dealing with the other people. It isn’t easy but of course when you are watching it’s hilarious. I do like to have a laugh, so moments like Kilroy getting covered in gloop keep you entertained. What’s next for you? I’ve become a patron at St Deiniol’s Library in Hawarden through a family connection. It’s the only prime ministerial library in the UK and well renowned internationally. I’ve become involved in raising money for a new addition to the library – an Islamic Reading Room and Religious Resource Centre. Our feeling is that in this day and age we need some sort of understanding with each other. I think we should all be getting on with each other

because you never know when it’s going to end. Any plans to do panto this year? I’d like to do panto again this year but the family are coming from all over the world to enjoy a Hogwarts style Christmas as caretakers at St Deiniol’s. I’d love to do a panto at the Liverpool Empire though. That would be my dream venue to perform.

Mallett File Born: Marple, Cheshire, 18 October 1955 Education: Rosehill Primary School (Marple); Earnseat Prep School (Arnside); Hyde Grammar School; Warwick University, BA (Hons) History of Art Lives: Cookham, Berkshire Trademarks/ Props: Loud shirts, colourful glasses and pink foam mallet ‘Pinky Punky’

Don’t Miss: Timmy Mallett will be hosting ‘It’s a Knockout’ at the Riversdale Police Club, Aigburth, on Sunday 19 July. The event is in aid of the Children Today charity, with money raised helping to provide specialised equipment for children and young people with disabilities in the local area. ‘It’s a Knockout’ is for teams with up to 10 people, with a minimum sponsorship of £1000 per team.

Illuminating Glamour We have just returned from a fantastic holiday in Spain. One of the bars, which we used to go into, had fantastic colourful glass chandeliers with lots of beads wrapped round them. I loved the lights and would like to have them in my home. Do you know anywhere that may sell similar lights?

With over 10 years experience in the interior design business, Sharon Armor is poised to answer all your design queries from DIY disasters to decorating dilemmas.

Without seeing the lights it’s really hard to direct you to the right supplier. However, Hiccup Gifts at www.hiccupgifts.com has a really glamorous multicoloured glass chandelier. The light with its Leitmotif design has six arms and is draped with colourful beads. It sounds similar to the lights, which you have seen on holiday. I would definitely suggest that you have a look online.

Boxing Clever I’ve recently moved, and the bathroom really needs decorating. There are some exposed pipes in one corner, which look really ugly! Do you have any ideas on how to disguise these? Boxing in is usually the best way to hide exposed pipes. The job is quite simple to do yourself if you are good at and confident in your DIY skills, but if not I would recommend using a good joiner, as the joints need to be as neat as possible for the new addition to merge as part of the wall. If you’re attempting the job yourself, I would use plywood and be as accurate with the measurements as possible. If you have trouble getting the edges to fit smoothly against the wall, use a good quality filler. Finally I would paint the boxing in the same colour as your walls to disguise those pipes completely!

Go for Graphics I’m living in a rented apartment in town. My landlords are fantastic but have said that if I make any changes to the apartment, I would have to make good before I leave in order to receive my full deposit. The walls in the apartment are painted white, and I would like to add some colour or pattern without spending a great deal of money or causing any damage to the property. Do you have any ideas?

Quick links Rockett St George www.rockettstgeorge.co.uk Hiccup Gifts www.hiccupgifts.com

2009 has seen some really good decorating devices coming onto the cheaper end of the home decorating market. Colourful, decorative wall stickers could be an ideal solution. The graphic stickers or decals are available to suit every room. They are perfect for use in rented accommodation as most can be fixed and removed from the walls without any damage to paint work, but please read the manufacturer’s instructions to check first. I would have a look at companies such as Rockett St George, Brume and B&Q to find your personal favourite.

Green Days //// GARDEN AND OUTDOOR SPACE

Social climbers

The sack race

With your garden in full summer bloom, July is all about maintenance. Trim climbing plants such as clematis if large and overgrown and prune flowers to encourage even growth in the future. Keep a check on weeds and pests such as greenfly and water thirsty plants at night so that moisture seeps into the soil for longer.

Arbour-tary

//// GARDEN MUST HAVE Washing line peg bag, £3.50 Marks and Spencer, 0151 708 8383

For a simple arbour design, dig the postholes around 30 inches deep in your chosen location and fill the first few inches with gravel for drainage. Plumb the posts with a level and hold in place with foundation stakes before setting in concrete. When the concrete is dry pull out the foundation stakes and top the holes with gravel. Attach the beams with stainless steel washers and screws and do the same with the crosspieces, spacing them evenly on top. Make the arbour more attractive by first cutting an interesting design into the end of each beam and crosspiece. Top tip – Try incorporating a seat into your desired design.

Eco-friendly storage is fast becoming fashionable and practical. With calls to reduce our use of plastic carrier bags for wrapping, carrying and storing shopping as a means to save resources and avoid excess materials ending up in landfill, more of us are returning to traditional storage ideas – with surprising results. Some fruit and vegetable barrows and local shops still sell fresh goods in brown paper bags, which are ideal in helping to keep the sunlight away from the goods and stop them from overripening too quickly. When purchasing your potatoes and other fruit and vegetables, choose the loose varieties rather than pre-packaged goods, and take your own canvas and reusable shopping bags to the shops. At home, sensible storage is leading the way in wasting less food and saving you money. Potatoes and root vegetables last for much longer when stored in a traditional canvas sack, out of direct sunlight, and not in a plastic bag. The breathable fabric keeps out the light and provides good air circulation, helping to prevent sprouting. Plastic, however, wins no points for preserving your spuds or in saving the planet: finishing last in this eco-friendly competition!

THE NEW SCULPTURE

LOCAL ARTIST OGO IN THE REVAMPED STUDIO

A Parr-fect team An ambitious new team has taken over operations at Parr Street Studio’s Studio 3. Beatmatch Productions hopes to nurture local talent at the Liverpool studio, which has housed recording sessions from artists such as Coldplay and Oasis. Beatmatch managing director George Tudor-Williams commented: “We want to create new music in Liverpool. There are good new artists out there and we want to help them get a foot in the door. The main part of our plan is to give something

back to the city because it has given us so much.” The Beatmatch team, which also includes producers Chris Deas and Richard Turvey, met while studying at LIPA. Aside from its more conventional uses, the newly refurbished studio will also host corporate team bonding exercises. George added: “People tend to feel least confident when they’re singing in front of people, so we feel the studio offers a unique opportunity for team building.”

Ring it out! A new sculpture made from oak and steel with ringing bells is to be installed at the National Wildflower Centre in Court Hey Park on Monday 13 July at 11am. The multi-sensory sculpture will take pride of place in the woodland area of the site. See www.nwc.org.uk.

Malingering Malade An extended run has been announced for The Hypochondriac at The Playhouse. Audiences will now be tickled pink until 18 July. See www.everymanplayhouse.com.

Table Talk //// LUCY OLIVER INTERVIEWS MIKE BLACK AT THE SWAN INN IN AUGHTON

The newly refurbished Swan Inn in Aughton has been drawing attention for its interior fit-out, and is also enjoying a warm reception for its fresh, cookedon-the-premises, locally sourced produce, and traditional ales. The drive to Aughton, near Ormskirk, where I meet Mike Black of Blacks Estate Agents, offers a welcome rural retreat from the city and from Mike’s Bootle office, where he’s been based for five years now. Covering the area between Kirkdale, Crosby and Aintree, Blacks sells houses from the lower end of the market upwards, catering for first time buyers and expanding families, right up to more expensive properties. Sales have been coming in pretty quickly of late: “Things have been picking up a good deal. Dealing for the most part with cheaper properties, my business hasn’t been as badly affected as others’, but it is starting to move more quickly again now.” With four staff members in the Bootle office and working in partnership with Platinum lettings agents, Blacks is the first port of call for sales in the north Liverpool area, with a

particular appeal for first time buyers and those requiring a one stop shop, in-house service. Mike opts for the Thai fishcakes to start, which arrive in a portion of three with chopped fresh peppers and salsa. I choose the Bury black pudding which, I’m told, uses the head chef ’s spice mixture in its recipe, topped with bacon and a fried egg. We choose to share and sample the adventurous combination of cultures as we discuss Mike’s varied career, which has seen him work in hospitality in Tenerife before choosing to get into property. From joining Collertons as a trainee manager, Mike quickly rose through the ranks to become area manager for Liverpool running eight branches: “When it came to setting up on my own and concentrating on just one branch it was obviously a new business challenge and a gamble, but I knew I had the experience behind me to make it a success.” For our main course, I opt for the short crust chicken pie, served with mash and steamed vegetables, while Mike is

tempted by the fresh salmon fillet, served on a bed of puréed mash and fine green beans. Head chef Robbie informs us that all the vegetables are locally grown and that everything is prepared on the premises – as all good pub food should be. Blacks is also part of The Home Market on Marion Square in Netherton, which sees estate agents from across the area come together in a joint venture to offer properties, financial and legal advice, HIPs and conveyancing, under a single roof. It’s a move which has seen Sefton businesses decide to work together for mutual benefit. In his spare time, Mike likes to write short stories and poems, and enjoys training for the annual Sefton Triathlon which he supports each year. He says: “It’s a brilliant community event which I’m really proud to be part of, and everyone says that after you’ve been once to watch or take part, you can’t help but get the bug.” He hopes to continue contributing to the event sponsorship next year but for now, with the market picking up, he’s certainly got plenty on his plate.

“I knew I had the experience behind me to make it a success.”

Telephone Blacks Estate Agents on 0151 933 7077 or visit www.mike-black.co.uk.

Swan Inn Springfield Road, Aughton T: 01695 421 450

Highlight: The lunch special offers two main meals for £15 or two course for £10.95, with many dishes served from 12pm until 8pm. Chef’s special: The short crust chicken pie, with a rich filling and just enough crust, is a tasty, nutritious and substantial main course.
