Winning formula SHEFFIELD WINDOW CENTRE WIN INSTALLER OF THE YEAR AT UK WINDOW INDUSTRY AWARDS BY TAKING AN ‘OPPOSITE APPROACH’. heffield Window Centre, a familyrun business now employing 74 staff, achieved recognition from its industry peers across the UK as the firm was named Installer of the Year at the G Awards. The G Awards are the most prestigious awards in the UK window industry, often described as the industry’s Oscars. The firm received the accolade in front of several hundred of their peers in the industry at a London gala awards dinner, with the prize presented by radio and TV entertainer, Milton Jones.
18 Image | www.imagemagazine.co.uk
And director Ian Hunter says the award is testament to the firm’s approach – even though they work in an opposite manner to many in their industry. “Our award was a really proud moment for all of our family, and I would like to thank every single member of staff, because without all their hard work, this wouldn’t have been possible. We’ve known many of the people who work for us for over 25 years. Without their efforts we couldn’t be where we are today. “The foundations were laid for winning
the award many years ago, when my father took over the business and decided to take an opposite approach to many others in the industry by not following up leads and quotes and focussing on the very best customer service. Our salespeople visit, post out a quote then leave the decision to the customer. We never chase people, I know that costs us sales but many customers say they love how we do business.” Hunter believes the firm’s success is built on this approach, alongside a long-term commitment to employ fitters, rather than

That means they can focus of delivering unrivalled customer service, he adds. “This year we’ve achieved record levels of customer satisfaction and we believe we set the standards for the rest of the industry across the UK, because of our no-pressure sales approach and our absolute focus on keeping our loyal customers happy. I think the judges were impressed by how we combine the traditional virtues of friendly, personal service – which we’ve always delivered, ever since my father took over the business – with the very latest contemporary products and efficient management processes.” Another important aspect of the company’s efforts is their focus on charitable work, with Hunter commenting: “The Sheffield Children’s Hospital Charity receives a

significant percentage of the profit that our service department makes on carrying out remedial work on windows and doors which are either out of guarantee or were installed by other window companies, and this year we started working with the wonderful Rain Rescue animal charity, to whom we have donated windows and doors.” And Hunter adds that whilst it’s great to receive the accolade, his biggest satisfaction is the unsolicited testimonials and comments the firm receives daily from happy customers. “We’ve always focused on putting the customer first, and our ambition hasn’t been to grow to a certain size but simply to provide the best possible service. And that’s why we have achieved over 99 per cent customer satisfaction again and have received the very highest rankings from customers via Which Trusted Trader.”

The food of love
IF YOU WANT TO IMPRESS YOUR OTHER HALF THIS VALENTINE’S DAY, A HOMECOOKED MEAL COULD WIN YOU SERIOUS BROWNIE POINTS, WRITES HANNAH SANDERS. HERE’S HER TOP TIPS FOR A HASSLE-FREE NIGHT. veryone knows that the quickest way to anyone’s heart is through their stomach. With Valentine’s Day fast approaching, if you are not going down the restaurant route there’s that worrying question of what to cook your significant other for arguably the most romantic day of the year. Valentine’s Day is celebrated around the world on 14 February in memory of St Valentine. Valentine or Valentinus was imprisoned for his religion and during his time in jail he fell in love with the jailer’s daughter when she came to him for lessons. When it was time for his sentence to be carried out he sent her a letter, signing it “from your Valentine”. Now the idea behind Valentine’s Day is to celebrate affection, love and devotion. Over the years certain foods have been labelled as the “food of love”, such as oysters, mussels, figs and, of course, chocolate. If your partner has a sweet tooth then incorporating chocolate into your Valentines meal is the way to go. Chocolate is a food that has always
28 Image | www.imagemagazine.co.uk
Oysters are a wellknown aphrodisiac
“The idea of you meeting in the middle while eating a strand of spaghetti and gazing into each other’s eyes makes some people weak at the knees.” been associated with love as it increases the blood flow, elevates mood and acts as an energy booster. Recipes such as a chocolate-rubbed steak with cocoa sweet potato fries (www.tablematters.com) or Nigella’s chocolate chip chilli (www.bakedbree.com) would be a simple yet effective way of showing off your romantic side. However, try to avoid too many stodgy carbs on the plate or you risk falling asleep on the sofa by 9pm! If your partner has less of a sweet tooth then anything with fish or red meat is a good choice. Fish, or more specifically oysters, mussels and lobster are an aphrodisiac. They are high in zinc and have a reputation for delivering the goods when an evening of romance is on the cards. Cioppino with mussels, which is an Italian-American fish stew (www.andrewzimmern.com), is an easy yet mouth-watering main to dish up. Alternatively go with a honey-glazed salmon (www.foodpolka.com). The romantics could go for “lady and tramp” spaghetti and meatballs because what is more romantic than recreating an iconic scene from a Disney movie? The idea of you meeting in the middle while eating a strand of spaghetti and gazing into each other’s eyes makes some people weak at the knees. Jamie Oliver has a “to die for” meatball recipe (www.jamieoliver.com) which is really easy to make but will have amazing results. If you are feeling very daring you could combine the two – sweet and savoury – and cook some chocolate lobster tacos (www.foodnetwork.co.uk ) to really push out all the stops. Of course, you can’t forget the dessert as it is the most important part of the meal and what says “I love you” more than red velvet Oreo brownies (www.countryliving.com)? These delicious treats seem super easy to make and you can even cheat and use a red velvet cake mix to make your life a bit easier. If you want something a bit more traditional then you can’t go wrong with chocolate dipped strawberries – or just chocolate dipped fruit of any kind! Pair the strawberries with some marshmallows on skewers and serve with salted caramel ice cream and you’re onto a winner. To finish off your romantic meal you need a glass of something special. Fizz fans can go for Chapel Down Rose Brut, which you can grab from Sainsbury’s. If you are going down the route of a good old steak for dinner then stick to the red wine such as Pinotage. However, if neither of you are into wine then go for a chocolate beer. A Brooklyn Black Stout or a Chocolate Ale with Raspberry (Boulevard Brewing Company) are
Everyone loves chocolate...
You can’t go too wrong with a steak
decent ones to go for. The Chocolate Ale gives you a big punch of raspberry to start with but gradually mellows the longer you sit with it, definitely one for those of you who have a sweet tooth. Finally for those of you like a bit more excitement then try Hotel Chocolat’s Salted Caramel Vodka for a predinner shot to get the night off to a whopping start. In the past few years, Valentine’s Day food hasn’t changed that much. The main ingredients are the same: fish, meat and

chocolate and even in the 1800s people were advised to eat chocolate to calm their pining for lost love. As long as you stick to the basics and there’s some good alcohol you really can’t go wrong. So if you want a romance filled evening with your partner then steer towards the chocolate and fish and stay away from anything messy like a burrito – but if you are determined to go for the finger food then please, don’t wear a white shirt, it’s a disaster waiting to happen!

New year, new you START 2017 ON THE FRONT FOOT BY MAKING SOME POSITIVE CHANGES TO YOUR LIFESTYLE. RACHEL MARTIN HAS SOME TOP TIPS TO HELP YOU REACH YOUR GOALS. ow that the champagne corks have stopped popping, and the excesses of Christmas and new year are over, it’s the perfect time to take stock and cut back in order to lose a few unwanted pounds. With the new year comes a raft of resolutions and 2017 is set to bring with it some of the latest and most effective ways to lose weight. And while reaching a healthy weight can take commitment and willpower, there are some tried and tested approaches that should make the task easier. If you feel overwhelmed by all the conflicting nutrition and diet advice out there, you’re not alone. Here are some weight loss tips and trends to help you achieve your health and fitness goals.
“Since you need to burn 3,500 calories to lose a pound of fat, choosing classes that burn as many calories as possible is your best bet to shed the pounds.”
36 Image | www.imagemagazine.co.uk
JOIN A GYM
For most people, the first step towards achieving their fitness goals is joining a gym. Every gym is different, and yours should be the perfect fit for your specific workout. It shouldn’t just be a room full of treadmills but a place in which you actually enjoy spending time. Well, as much as you can enjoy a place where you are continually huffing and puffing. Your gym should feel comfortable, inspiring and nurturing to your overall health. FITNESS CLASSES
Any fitness class is a good choice if you have trouble finding motivation to exercise. If you’re trying to lose weight, however, choosing the right class will make a big difference. Some classes are good for muscle definition and relaxation but don’t offer too much in terms of calorie burning. Since you need to burn 3,500 calories to lose a pound of fat, choosing classes that burn as many calories as possible is your best bet to shed the pounds. HYDRATION
Appetite and thirst are regulated through the same part of the brain, leading you to think
you’re hungry when you’re dehydrated. Beat the confusion by drinking a glass of water and waiting 15-20 minutes to see if your hunger vanishes. Not only is water the cure for unnecessary snacking but bonus benefits include clearer skin, improved digestion and liver support, allowing your body to better metabolise fat. HEALTHY EATING
Healthy eating is not about strict dietary limitations, staying unrealistically thin, or depriving yourself of the foods you love. Rather, it’s about feeling great, having more energy, improving your outlook, and stabilising your mood. To set yourself up for success, think about planning a healthy diet as a number of small, manageable steps – like adding a salad to your diet once a day – rather than one big drastic change. Ditch habits of weighing your food to the gram and crunching numbers throughout the day. The less you stress about eating, the better your chances of sticking with your eating plan and avoid making decisions that could set you back.
THE GREAT OUTDOORS
Skipping the gym every now and then allows you to get outside. Not only do studies claim people have more rigorous and longer workouts when they’re outside, but being around nature has positive psychological effects including increased self-esteem and lowered depression and fatigue.
applications to reduce fat and improve skin texture without ever going beneath the skin – and without the need to exercise. Eight sessions are usually required for ultimate results but this would be dependent on a full consultation to determine suitability. Treatments are available individually or as part of a more extensive fat-removal and body-contouring programme.
“Not only do studies claim people have more rigorous and longer workouts when they’re outside, but being around nature has positive psychological effects.”
Unfortunately, apps alone won’t help you lose weight, but if you can’t afford a personal trainer, fancy gym membership, or even a simple fitness tracker, they can definitely help you stay on track. Calorie-counting and exercise-tracking fitness apps let you use a smartphone or tablet to record food and exercise, as well as set a net calorie consumption target or range for the day based on your height, weight, age, gender, and overall level of activity.
A workout DVD or even a quick YouTube search to find indoor aerobic routines can pay off when you have limited space. Committing to a 20-minute blast at home is easier than promising yourself that you will get up early for the gym. When conventional weight-loss techniques don’t work, for some people, this might be the time to try an alternative weight-loss therapy.
Hypnosis is considered to be the resolving solution for people following the patterns of binge eating. Many have claimed it is the best supplement for weight loss, and it is a method used all over the world these days.
Unlike traditional liposuction, 3D Lipo is entirely non-invasive, utilising various
Body wraps are treatments designed to tighten your skin, eliminate toxins, help with temporary inch loss and/or soothe tired muscles. There are different wraps available tailored at different needs, but it’s no miracle cure. The effects of body wraps are only temporary. But if you’re worried about a big event or baring all on the beach, this could be a quick way to would like to lose a few inches.

LEAVING A LEGACY TO SHEFFIELD CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL WILL HELP A CHILD’S LIFE – IT REALLY IS A GIFT OF LIFE. heffield Children’s Hospital is one of four stand-alone specialist children’s hospitals in the UK and provides world-class care for children all over Yorkshire and beyond. The skill of staff and the courage of patients and their families helps to make it an incredible place – but at The Children’s Hospital Charity, we’ll never stop striving to make it better. There are so many ways in which you can support the charity; one of the most significant ways you can help is leaving a gift in your will or create a will with Irwin Mitchell who will offer a discount when you quote The Children’s Hospital Charity, as well as make an instant donation to the charity. For 17-year-old Ebony Taylor, an incredibly generous gift, left by Sheffield local Betty in her will, has made all the difference to her treatment. Ebony, from Doncaster, has been treated at the hospital for epilepsy since 2012 and needs regular scans to monitor the activity in her brain. She was the first patient to benefit from a fully digital intraoperative 3T MRI scanner, partially funded by a £845,273 donation made by Betty. When Betty passed away she wanted to remember the hospital – a cause she had
championed all her life – in her estate. Her staggering once in a lifetime gift means that patients like Ebony will benefit from the most up to date technology possible and can get better in an environment designed with them in mind. Every penny donated through a legacy really does make a difference. Legacies also help to fund up to £250,000 of research into the prevention and cure of childhood illnesses and disease every single year. One of these projects developed a pioneering screening programme which detects rare life-threatening diseases in babies. Thanks to a successful pilot study leg by Sheffield Children’s Hospital, all new-born babies in England will be screened for four additional rare but serious conditions. The early detection and treatment of these conditions helps to give children the best possible start in life. Leaving a legacy through your will could make a life-saving difference for the children in our care – it really is the gift of life. To find out how to make a legacy donation or how you can create a discounted will through our partners Irwin Mitchell, contact email@example.com.
“Ebony Taylor was the first patient to benefit from a fully digital intraoperative 3T MRI scanner, partially funded by a £845,273 donation made by Betty.”

Her legacy helped fund a £2.3million state-of-the art MRI scanner which will save children’s lives with neurological conditions for years to come.

TOUR DE FORCE
CHRIS WILSON STAYS ON THE MOVE BY TRAIN, BUS AND BOAT TO SEE THE SIGHTS IN SWITZERLAND. hatever happened to the Grand Tour? Back in the 17th century, wealthy English gentlemen would spend several months travelling across Europe, accruing knowledge and purchasing beautiful antiques and carpets to furnish their country estates back home. Nowadays, even if budgets are not an issue, we tend to settle for a single location. Unpack, head for the pool, and return home a fortnight later, several shades darker but no wiser. It’s a habit that has not gone unnoticed among our continental cousins. As I checked in to one hotel for a single night’s stay on a whistlestop tour of Switzerland, my host was vexed about the holiday habits of the archetypal Brit abroad. “Why do you stay in one place? You should see more of the country you are staying in,” I was told. I didn’t need the lecture; she was preaching to the converted. Have suitcase on wheels will travel…that’s my motto. Mind you, it does make it a lot easier when the country you are visiting is Switzerland, where the trains, buses and boats always run on time and itineraries can be planned with total confidence. Just to make the travel easier, you can buy
44 Image | www.imagemagazine.co.uk
a Swiss Pass for unlimited travel on eight consecutive days on railways, boats and most alpine postbuses, covering a network of 16,000km. The Swiss Pass also allows a half price reduction on all privately owned funicular and mountain railways and free entrance to 450 museums. It really is the ultimate ticket to ride. On arrival at Zurich airport, it was a short stroll to the adjoining railway station and half an hour by train to the sleepy town of Kusnacht and the Romantik Seehotel Sonne. Dating back to 1641, the picturesque location on Lake Zurich was mesmerising and the hotel’s private bathing area was irresistible on a scorching July day. The water was crystal clear – very refreshing and with nothing but the occasional steam boat gliding by to make ripples on the water – and a quick dip was Grimsel Hospiz
the perfect way to unwind. Dinner on the terrace, watching the sun set and the lights from small towns across the bay start to twinkle, added to my sense of wellbeing. Food and wine, I realised, was going to be a major plus point. Throughout the tour I ate incredibly well on outstanding local produce including home-smoked salmon, veal, river fish and berries. The wine, meanwhile, was a revelation. It is produced in all 26 Cantons, although not in sufficient volume that you are likely to find it imported to your local supermarket. So, make the most of it: many patriotic bars and restaurants stock only Swiss wines, and that is no hardship when the choice includes creamy sparkling Cremands, flinty Rieslings and smooth rich Merlots. After that first night, I awakened to a ridiculously perfect chocolate-box view of mountains, lake, blue skies and fluffy clouds. So I checked out with some sadness, but I had an itinerary to follow and a series of trains, boats and buses to catch. The next few days passed in a blur of activity with fresh highlights around every corner. Whatever our mode of transport, the views were amazing and if some, even for
first time visitor, were eerily familiar, it might have been because some of Switzerland’s most picturesque scenery is much loved by TV and film location scouts. So, at various times, we found ourselves in the same spot as some of fiction’s most memorable action scenes involving legendary heroes and villains. On one train journey through the Beernese Oberland region, we found ourselves looking up at the Reichenbach Falls, where Sherlock Holmes and his arch rival Professor Moriarty fought and perished in a dramatic death plunge onto the rocks below… until a disapproving public demanded that logic be defied and Holmes was resurrected in a later story. Perhaps the most spectacular hotel on our tour was the Grimsel Hospiz, perched at 2000m in the middle of bleakly beautiful rocky landscape on the turquoise waters of an artificial lake which is built on top of a hydro-electric dam. We travelled by train and bus, then the hotel’s mini bus took us through the dizzying steep mountain roads. It came as no surprise to learn that James Bond and Blofeld had battled it out on these very same twisting roads in On Her Majesty’s Secret Service. The hotel is accessible only by cable car in winter and is so remote that skiing is too dangerous. People come to revel in the luxurious hotel and watch the scenery. This being high summer, we simply drove on a road blasted through the rock, arriving at our mountain retreat not quite able to believe our eyes. Don’t miss those views, but also don’t miss the wine cellar of which the owners are rightly proud. A more sedate mode of arrival, though just as exciting in its own way, is the steam boat to Lucerne, which is worth a walking tour for its hidden alleys, teeming town squares and beautifully preserved 13th century city walls. Summer in Switzerland means there are, of course, mountains to climb, and it was appropriate that we ended our truncated version of the Grand Tour in Zermatt, the town that started it all. The Matterhorn dominates the view here and there are wonderful summer walks for all levels of fitness.

The Reichenback Falls
However, if you simply want to take in the view, there is a train up to Gornergat at an altitude of 3,089m. We were staying at the Monte Rosa hotel, which was the mountaineering base of Edward Whymper, the man who made the first successful ascent of the Matterhorn. Legend has it that Queen Victoria disapproved of such dangerous leisure pursuits and pronounced that it must stop. To anyone with a remotely rebellious taste for adventure this was just the incentive needed – and hardy hikers have been coming to Zermatt to tackle the Matterhorn and the less challenging lower ranges ever since. Zermatt is a quirky town. Local farmers still drive their goats down the main street every day, but the glitzy bars and restaurants are testament to the fact that this is one of Switzerland’s most fashionable resorts, winter and summer. But while the town may be buzzing the one thing you won’t hear is the roar of the internal combustion engine. Cars are banned, although you can always find an electric buggy at the station to transport you and your luggage to the hotel. And that seems a suitably strange final stop on this truncated version of the Grand Tour.

Getting around the city has never been easier, thanks to Supertram It’s never been easier to get around Sheffield on public transport, thanks to the links between trams and the city’s bus network. In fact, there are many great reasons why it makes sense to use the tram as part of your journey. Dayrider tickets cost from just £4 a day, offering a day’s travel on trams and Stagecoach buses for a great price. Meanwhile it only costs £4.30 per day to use the tram and any bus in Sheffield with a CityWide ticket. If you need to take the car there are Park & Ride sites with tickets that include tram travel for the driver, with ‘park only’ tickets also available for customers with a pass. Planning your journey is simple with the Link for Less map and there are suggested convenient interchange points online at www.supertram.com. With conductors on every tram to give travel advice and sell tickets, there is no need to buy before you board. www.supertram.com
Popular hospice charity shop closes for major refit One of the most popular St Luke’s Hospice charity shops has closed for the start of a major refurbishment programme. But bargain hunters won’t have to look too far for great deals as the charity is about to open a new store at Manor Top. The St Luke’s Gleadless shop in White Lane will be closed until June as the site has a complete overhaul. The closure coincides with the opening of the award-winning retail operation’s latest shop at Manor Top, which will launch on 14 March. All the St Luke’s shops sell a wide range of donated second-hand goods including women’s, men’s and children’s clothing and shoes, accessories, household goods, kitchenware and crockery sets, decorative items, books and toys, DVDs and CDs as well as a full range of furniture at selected outlets. Donations of unwanted items are always needed and can be taken into any of the St Luke’s shops during normal opening hours. Larger items can also be collected. Call the retail hotline on 0114 235 7562 or visit the St Luke’s website.
