Editor’s

LETTER

I

’ve always liked the proverb ‘April showers bring forth May flowers’ – it has such a wonderful, lilting flow and the promise of brighter days (in both senses) is always welcoming after the long winter months. And our recent weather has been rather exceptional – for all the wrong reasons. Throughout the snow/hail/rain/gale force winds and sub zero temperatures, I’ve felt a twinge of sympathy for all the blushing brides who have experienced Arctic conditions on their recent special day. Spring has finally arrived, however, and this month we’re running a local wedding special – from venues to photography and the all important dress. We also have an interview with Zita Elze, a truly innovative florist who reveals the inspirations behind her stunning creations. Zita has made a top secret floral bridal gown which will be unveiled at this month’s Chelsea Flower Show, so keep your eyes peeled... Elsewhere in the magazine, Michael Wale chats exclusively to Zac Goldsmith, who discusses everything from his time at The Ecologist to his idylic childhood in Ham. By the way, congratulations to Zac, who recently wed at the Barnes WWT London Wetland Centre. A nature lover to the core... Until next month.

Richmond-based Alex Theophanous and wife Alexa Till, founders of kids designer fashion website alexandalexa.com, sponsored the first ever Global Kids Fashion Week which kicked off last month. The launch party drew a host of celebs and their trendsetting offspring. High fashion (in miniature) prevailed, though many of the young VIPs preferred the free popcorn and BU nail polish manicures than taking note on next season’s trends.

The decision to be a mother and work fulltime is always a difficult one. In Germany such mothers are called ‘Rabenmutter’ – 'Ravenmothers'.

THE GOOD LIFE

The new Sunday Times Best Places to Live guide has ranked Richmond as one of the five best places to live in London. The piece highlighted Richmond’s abundant architecture and natural beauty – describing it as like ‘living in a landscape painting.’ Poetic praise indeed, but the article couldn’t help but mention the accompanying ‘plane noise’ too.

Hopefully the snow will have disappeared for good in time for Richmond’s social event of the year – the spectacular May Fair Ball. Held in a dreamily-lit marquee on Richmond Green, the charity event attracts local A-listers (previous guests have included Jerry Hall, Sir Trevor MacDonald and Samantha Bond) and the proceeds from this year’s event will go to home-grown charities Me Too & Co and the Orange Tree Theatre’s community and education programme.

Flower Power From Kew Gardens to Kyoto; welcome to the creative world of florist Zita Elze

©RBG KEW

[ARTS & CULTURE]

HOW DID YOU GET INTO FLORISTRY? It actually happened by chance. I had just finished my Garden Design studies at Inchbald and came across a wonderful Victorian shop in a leafy road in Kew. It had been used as a flower shop before but stood empty and I decided to take it over and use it as a showcase for my garden design practice. WHAT FLOWERS DO YOU LIKE TO WORK WITH MOST? I work with spray roses a lot as they are very good to use for my floral embroidery. I love all flowers, they each have their particular quality – it really depends on the project. Lately I’ve been using carnations ‘en masse’, a flower that you wouldn’t have found in my shop before. WHAT ARE YOUR TOP TIPS FOR BRIDES PLANNING THEIR WEDDING FLOWERS? Be creative. Put together a theme that represents your personality instead of going for somebody else’s wedding design. I love to be challenged by my brides, when they come to see me I tell them upfront that I do not have any recipes. I do show them some images sometimes to see their reactions but the most important thing for me is to get to know the client as closely as possible so together we can create something alive, full of energy and that will remain in her memory and that of her family and friends.

STIPA DRESS

‘Being so close to Kew Gardens feels almost like being in the countryside’

WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE TRAVEL DESTINATION? I love going to Kyoto for inspiration and to unwind – there are so many beautiful gardens and temples to visit. I usually come back ‘all Zen’, but unfortunately it doesn’t last very long. WHAT IS YOUR MOST TREASURED POSSESSION? My family – my husband and my two kids, and some pieces that I sometimes display in the shop that I will not sell for any money in the world. You know when you find these little treasures full of soul that you pay very little for but which give you so much. These are my treasures.

Where is the world’s most beautiful garden? ‘I’m excited about a wedding in July where the bride will be wearing on of my dresses from The Living Embroidery Bridal Collection’

Mood Board v3.indd 19

Difficult question, maybe the 16th Century garden at Bagnaia close to Viterbo in Central Italy, this has inspired me beyond imagination.

02. KITE STUDIO

01. THE ART YARD

The Art Yard encourages kids to have fun and explore their creativity with a number of exciting courses including DIY Screenprinting and a Young Designers Sewing Club, both for 10-16 year olds. Slightly younger children can attend Crafty Club for 5-8 year olds or Drawing, Painting and Sculpture for 6-12 year olds. Children’s parties, adult workshops and parties are also on offer if you would also like to be inspired. 318 Upper Richmond Road West, SW14; artyard.co.uk

Offering a range of art classes for preschool children alongside after school and Saturday art clubs as well as A-Level portfolio projects, holiday workshops, bespoke courses and parties, this is indeed a creative oasis in Shepherd’s Bush.

03. DRIFTWOOD DREAMS

Anita Russell is a practicing papier mache artist whose work has appeared in both a Channel 4 documentary and at the Victoria and Albert Museum. She runs workshops on request for children of all different ages at fairs, in schools, at private parties and recommends two sessions as ideal for creating a finished piece. Anita will demonstrate how to make your own glue and then take the children through the various stages of the art form. Think of the benefits for your child’s future school projects… 29 Ham Street, TW10; driftwood-dreams.co.uk

IN OTHER NEWS FOOD FOR THE SOUL In support of the government initiative for compulsory cooking lessons for kids aged 7 to 14, Levi Roots, a household name after his appearance on Dragon’s Den for his range of authentic Jamaican Jerk sauces, has launched the School of Life Tour. The scheme will see the chef and musician visit schools across the UK, with a stop-off at Lena Gardens School, Hammersmith, on 23 May, to spark a passion for music and food in the youngsters he meets.

Seeds of Change Z

Michael Wale talks to champion of reform Zac Goldsmith

ac Goldsmith might come from a moneyed background, (inheriting a rumoured £300m), and he might have a private life not often out of gossip columns, but to visit the almost anonymous office of the MP for Richmond Park and North Kingston in the Sheen Road is to bring the visitor back to reality. In his previous life, Zac Goldsmith was owner and editor of The Ecologist, an anti-establishment magazine that led environmental campaigning, especially in their famous issue when they took on the GM crop giant Monsanto, winning a famous victory. But now I ask why on earth he is a Member of Parliament? He explains: ‘I wanted to be an MP to bring things I was campaigning for on the outside to the inside.’ Later he admits that people despise MPs, which is why he wants to shake up the whole Parliamentary system. Any preconceptions about the man are swept aside as soon as he starts to spread his personal enthusiasm across the long table of this ground floor meeting room. He says about arriving in Parliament, ‘I can see we have a democracy but it’s dysfunctional. I’d say the structure is such that the pressure is on the MP to conform with the Party, rather than hold Government to account on behalf of his constituents.’ This attitude has caused him to campaign for one of his major reforms of the system, the Political Recall system. ‘I’ve a Recall Bill I’m trying to get through Parliament,’ he says, ‘this would allow voters to trigger a referendum to rid themselves of a disappointing MP, if enough people sign a petition. A successful ‘Recall’ would then lead to a normal bye-election. It is a system available in 23 States of America, in

Switzerland, South Korea, parts of Canada, and it works.’ Zac is also for Open Primarys so that before the next election, the electorate can decide who their candidate is. He says, ‘if you take a safe Labour or Tory seat the likelihood is you were selected by seven or eight people. It’s not very democratic. I was elected as candidate in a semi-primary. There was no postal vote, but it was conducted in a packed hall in Richmond. Everyone, not only Conservatives, were invited. You vote until someone has 50%. I was local, the other two were not. I think it should be in favour of local.’ As for being the MP for Richmond Park and North Kingston, he recalls his youth being brought up in the family home of Ormeley Lodge, Ham, where his love for

his constituency they are famously politically engaged; ‘Ministers and former Ministers tell me they received more letters from people in Richmond and Kingston than from any other constituency. There was a big swing away from the Lib Dems. It could go back the next time. People here are very politically aware.’ He admits, ‘I’m always described as a ‘rebellious backbencher’, but I’ve voted with my Party 90% of the time. What’s important is that your vote should never be taken for granted by your Party, if it is, then you can’t apply scrutiny, and you can’t hold Government to account.’ His Ecologist days come into play when the subjects of GM food and nuclear power arise, not to mention what he sees as the most important subject of the moment, the use of antibiotics in animals. This is an issue that he feels should be on the front page of every newspaper. It took him a year, but he got the House of Commons to debate the use of antibiotics in January. He feels it is a health problem and he found an ally in Health Minister Anna Soubry, and is supported by the views of former Chief Medical Officer Sir Liam Donaldson. As for Zac Goldsmith, he remains the campaigner he was before he was an MP. No weekly surgery for him, but a continual meeting with groups of constituents. ‘I’ll meet up to 20-30 people at a time in a coffee shop in the morning, pub in the evening, even in peoples’ kitchens’ he explains. ‘It’s a good way to get feedback. I think it’s also good for people to feel they are involved. There is a very deep sense that people don’t like the remoteness of our politics. Somehow the bridge between people and power needs to be bridged.’

‘I wanted to be an MP to bring things I was campaigning for on the outside to the inside’ nature and the environment began. ‘I lived out of doors,’ he says, ‘Ham is now right in the middle of my constituency. It’s an amazing place in this borough to grow up in. Richmond Park is right next door and they have managed to avoid sanitising it like so many places. It’s wild and beautifully managed. It still has rotting trees on the ground, muddy footpaths. I knew every trek in those woods and the golf course. I’m sure it was illegal to wander across it, but I used to find golf balls and sell them back to the golfers. We never kept the money, and gave it to the Star and Garter.’ ‘Physically Richmond hasn’t changed a great deal in my lifetime’ he adds, ‘the one negative is that we have lost a lot of our independent shops.’ As for those who live in

• Set a budget and stick to it by negotiating hard with suppliers, especially if they were recommended by your venue; they will often be paying commission on your booking. • Don’t copy ideas from a magazine or pick a colour and stick to it; instead think about how to reflect your own personalities and interests in the styling of your day. • On your wedding day remember that you are the host, so you also need to think about the event from your guests’ perspective. This means making sure that the whole day flows naturally, and that guests aren’t left standing around without a drink while you have pictures taken, for example. It is really important that each guest gets to spend at least a short time with you both.

DOMED SALON, CHISWICK HOUSE

• Appoint someone as the coordinator on the day. This could be a friend, or ideally, a professional. Without a coordinator, you will spend the whole day sweating the details yourself, which will significantly reduce your enjoyment of the wedding day. They need to reconfirm all the details with suppliers, create a detailed running order and oversee the day. When you are planning a wedding there are so many suppliers keen for your business that it’s hard to know where to turn. No matter what size your budget, you want quality and value for money. Several of our favourites happen to be based in west London. Marmalade Jewellery in Turnham Green make stunning jewellery, and will also manufacture to a design of your own. They’re so good, I even went there for my own wedding rings! From a short list of the best couture wedding dress designers, two happen to be based around Richmond; try Angelina Colarusso for dramatic style or Louise Selby for a beautiful classic with a twist. There are also many lovely venues, including Pembroke

he idea of planning your own wedding sounds like fun to the uninitiated, but unless you feel confidently creative, are commercially savvy and know how to find the best suppliers out there, it can turn out to be rather daunting. As professional wedding planners we are often asked for our top wedding planning tips and for recommendations about the best suppliers. We’ve distilled our top tips down to four golden rules:

PEMBROKE LODGE

Lodge inside Richmond Park and Chiswick House. Finally, apart from your marriage, the photographs are what last forever, so present them well. Blissetts in Acton, who hold the Royal Warrant as The Queen’s bookbinder, make the most amazing bespoke albums! snapdragonparties.com 27

PERFECT TEN

People Hair founder Enzo Nuzzo has been cutting hair since he was a teenager and, after changing sunny Italy to leafy Chiswick, the popular salon will celebrate ten years in business this June. During this time, the area has seen many changes, but People Hair’s quality and service have remained constant. Welcoming the new season and their monumental birthday, the salon are now using premium Italian brand Davines in their treatments. People Hair specialize in cutting, colouring and natural hair extensions, and Enzo has offered Absolutely his expert advice on maintaining on-trend curly styles for summer:

CURL POWER

‘Curls never go out of fashion, but frizz will never be ‘in’. For shiny, manageable tresses without the fuzz, use Davines’ Love shampoo and conditioner – specially formulated for curls. The primary ingredient, rice wax, contains a high Vitamin E content and the products reduce static and dehydration. Indian fig extract will leave your locks smelling good enough to eat.’ peoplehair.com

Review Rhythm is a dancer

Barreworks WorkOut Signature Class

It is only the very ignorant who would dismiss ballet as ‘wussy’ – it is, of course, the opposite. Barreworks’ unfairly lithe and glamorous founder Vicki Anstey hosts regular ballet barre-based exercise classes at her beautiful Richmond studio. Don’t let the girlie French chic decor fool you, this is the place to go to for one heck of a workout. The class is an ingenious fusion of stretches, weights and barre-work combined with an energetic soundtrack. Anstey makes it all look so easy as she guides you through an intense but fun hour’s programme. Her clientele are equally stylish and well on their way to that coveted dancer’s body. Your muscles won’t know what’s hit them afterwards, but you can practically feel your abs, glutes – and everything in-between – beginning to tone-up immediately.

ven if you haven’t heard of Bethan Gray, you’ve probably seen or even sat on something she’s designed. Snapped up as a graduate after winning a New Designers Award in 1998, she spent a decade with Habitat, becoming head of furniture design. And then her Noah range for John Lewis became a best-seller. Now she works independently from a studio at Great Western Studios, where this month she and her own brand G&T are the focus of their Inside Design season. The world of furniture design might be mostly male, but Bethan Gray doesn’t have

any theories about why, though she says it’s not that way in college. And she notes two female inspirations, French architect Charlotte Perriand and Irish designer Eileen Grey, plus the contemporary Spanish designer Patricia Urquiola. Gray’s work trades on her own name, established over a decade at Habitat under Tom Dixon, whose emphasis on named designers marked a change in approach for the store. It’s easy to see why Gray’s sleek, stylish designs are successful, and she describes her own work confidently. ‘My style is contemporary but warm. The warmth 47

‘Warmth comes from the use of natural materials like wood and leather but also through small intriguing details’

comes from the use of natural materials like wood and leather but also through small intriguing details. I aim for a timeless appeal that will work in a contemporary as well as a classic environment, trying to create style in proportions as well as details.’ Longevity is important too, and she pictures her pieces being passed on to future generations. Intriguing details include brogueing, inspired by the shoe process, in the form of a band of leather wrapped around a tabletop. ‘I didn’t know how brogue shoes were made so I worked with a specialist. It’s not hand-punched, it’s laser-cut.’ The brogue table comes in various sizes and heights and it’s a ‘considered, high quality piece that people can use,’ in Gray’s words, and was nominated for last year’s Elle Decoration Awards. A new range of Brogue Tables with bright leathers are set to launch this month, with colours including fuschia, red and peach in addition to the initial green and white pieces. One of the reasons Gray cites as the inspiration for leaving Habitat was a desire to work with different materials, especially marble and leather. ‘I’m obsessed with marble at the minute,’

she says. She is currently working on carved marble tables inspired by Italian and Swiss churches for the Inside Design exhibition. There will be brogueing in marble and a focus on highlighing how pieces are made by deconstructing them. ‘Many of my designs look simple but they’re not simple to make, so it’s showing that,’ explains Gray. So the tabletop will be separated from its legs, for instance, and we’ll be able to see how they attach. What about Gray’s own home? She has lived in west London for some years and is currently based in Hammersmith Grove. Is she surrounded by her own work? ‘Yes,’ she admits. ‘There’s a lot of my own – I’m bringing some Habitat units from my home for the exhibition – and as well as the contemporary pieces, I have old things and vintage pieces from Golborne Road.’ Inside Design with Bethan Gray runs from 26 April to 9 May at Great Western Studios, 65 Alfred Road W2. The season is sponsored by Bective Leslie Marsh. greatwesternstudios.com

T

he nature notes handed out at the entrance to Perivale Wood tell you that there are four million bluebells in this 10-hectare nature reserve in Ealing. At first you think it must be an exaggeration. Then you step into this wonderland and realise there is little reason to doubt or need to try counting for yourself; all that matters is that the bluebells here are one of the city’s rare and unforgettable natural sights. So precious is the wildlife here that Perivale opens to the public just once a year, on either the last Sunday in April, or the first Sunday in May, just in time to see the bluebells in their full glory. As you venture into their midst, you feel like a trespasser in another land. This is not a place for man, but an ecosystem for ever-increasing numbers of butterfly, moth and bird species that have made this reserve home – where the long meadow grass provides habitat for lizards and butterflies, while the shaded waters of the medieval pond shelter the smooth newt and woodland birds. Perivale, also known as Braddish Wood, is 7 hectares of ancient woodland, and almost one of recent habitat, while meadow, pasture and scrubland are grazed by four horses from May to October, to maintain an untidy sward. The old-school style of management, employed today on this patch of old Middlesex, is down to the commitment of the Selborne Society, which purchased the site in 1923. It was the culmination of efforts begun some years earlier by one of its members, Robert Read – an Ealing naturalist, who had fallen in love with the birdsong he had heard coming from the wood as he worked along the nearby Grand Union Canal. Read pioneered a project to protect birds in the area, and as early as 1902 Perivale was established as a bird sanctuary, and a keeper employed to protect the woodland against poachers, bird-catchers, egg collectors and flower sellers. When the society acquired the site, the surrounding area was a rural idyll. Although the expanding city has made its way here, the contours of this nature reserve have remained largely the same for the best part of 250 years – perhaps even longer. So, what you may glimpse here but once a year is a rebellion against that urban march.

THROUGH THE YEAR

As the woodland awakes, springtime blossom erupts from the wild service and blackthorn trees and the floor is awash with bluebells, before May brings the gold tones of the yellow archangel. Vines and brambles creep across the forest floor. The tree canopy thickens above, and so dense is the vegetation that visibility is reduced to a few meters. In summer, the long

grass of the ancient pasture hosts legless lizards and small brown field voles, while ringlets, marbled white and brown argus feast on flora in the north paddock. The air is filled with honeysuckle perfume. Little orange wood mice swarm over the boughs of the ancient trees as autumn comes, but are soon preyed on by the tawny owls that lurk in the trees. Winter beats the woodland into retreat, as animals and plants batten down the hatches. But the odd long-tailed tit and goldcrest can be seen venturing across frosted ground, to feed on the fruits of the oak, hazel, hawthorn and holly. Extrct taken from ‘Lost in London’ by Lucy Scott & Tina Smith, £14.99, Anova Books

SPOTTER’S GUIDE GETTING THERE Perivale is a few minutes’ walk from Perivale Station, served by the Central Line. The surrounding area belongs to section nine of the Capital Ring Walk, which follows the Grand Union Canal towpath on one side of the site, from the nearby Paradise Fields Wetlands nature reserve. NEARBY NATURAL WONDERS Paradise Fields Wetlands was created on the site of the former Greenford Golf Course and has established itself as a wildlife haven. It is now managed primarily for nature conservation and comprises reedbeds, wetland areas and hay meadows. Many rare bird species nest here, including reed buntings and several species of warbler. A pair of lapwing has bred in recent years – a rare occurrence in Greater London. HAWTHORN Well known as a hedgerow plant, uncut hawthorn grows into large trees. Their berry-like fruits are the perfect meal for thrushes, like the blackbird and fieldfare. BLUEBELL Indicative of ancient woodland, native bluebells can be distinguished from the Spanish variety by their narrower, darker flowers and delicate stem which create the characteristic drooped shape. ELEPHANT HAWK-MOTH A medium-sized hawk moth, on the wing from May to July. Common in woodlands, where it can be seen at dusk.

Green Fingers Updates from a gardener’s world

HANGING AROUND

Boskke is a New Zealand company who are turning the gardening world on its head. Literally. Their unusual name is derived from the old English word ‘bosky’, meaning ‘small forest’; perfectly fitting the company’s innovative approach to urban planting. Their somewhat surreal, upside-down planters are clutter free and provide abundant greenery to homes and workplaces. Boskke recently took Central St Martins students to Kew Gardens as part of a London 2050 project on the role of plants and design in daily life. This is one quiet, topsy-turvy revolution that’s sure to make an impact. boskke.com

‘May is really the month when the garden warms up and heads into summer, it is the month when The Chelsea Flower show opens its doors and heralds in summer. The worst of the winter weather is usually done and dusted by now and bedding plants can be planted out in pots on the terrace or in the ground (although, do watch out for random late frosts and protect the plants with horticultural fleece). These plants will flower their socks off throughout the summer so keep them fed either with a granular feed in the soil or a balanced liquid feed. Watch out for Lily beetle too and dispose accordingly, you can’t miss them as nature has done nothing to camouflage these carmine red insects that will if left unchecked demolish lilies and Fritillaria. Chelsea is a great place for horticultural inspiration so book your tickets now (20-25 May).’ rhs.org.uk, kategouldgardens.com

Pick of the crop

Food& Travel

Sarah Cruz, co-founder of local foodie initiative Abundance, gives Absolutely the low-down on the fruits of her labour In a nutshell, what is Abundance? We are a community project and we harvest seasonal surplus fruit and provide to local restaurants and grocers. We typically get contacted by local residents, for example an elderly couple or family who may have an apple tree in their back garden who need help picking the fruit. Hundreds of fruit trees a year go unpicked and within Chiswick alone we’ve picked over a tonne of fruit per year since 2010. A group in Sheffield originally started the name Abundance and they’re pretty similar to us; they map all the local fruit trees and they harvest them. There are Abundance groups in Leeds, Manchester and several in London. We just loved the name – it really says it all. How long has Abundance been running for? We started in January 2010 but before that I started a scheme called Chiswick’s Local Produce back in 2008. I partnered up with Karen Liebreich, who was running the Chiswick House Kitchen Garden. I came along to help make use of some of their surplus fruit and veg and that’s how we got started working together and the two of us decided to form Abundance. Can you tell us about your work with primary schools? We’re the only Abundance group in the country that works with schools. We currently work with six in the local area with lots more waiting

to sign up. Basically a teacher is assigned within the school to run the project and a volunteer goes out with them on a weekly basis to pick in their catchment area. The children have experience of harvesting the trees and taking it back to the school. I don’t see why there shouldn’t be an Abundance programme in every school in London. Do the kids enjoy it? Yes, it doesn’t matter how tired I am or how grim the day, it all fades away when you see these kids arrive at the garden. We discuss the different shapes of the fruit and explain that just because it has a blemish doesn’t mean it’s unusable. It’s educational but fun, that’s why the teachers are so keen on it. What kind of fruit do you harvest typically? The bulk of what we produce is apples and pears but I’m really interested in mulberries – the restaurants go mad for them because you can’t

Are all the trees privately owned? They tend to be on private land but we do pick local street trees too. We now have a database of 100 or so tree owners, but we know there are lots more out there and we get contacted all the time. What restaurants do you supply to? Sam’s Brasserie, Charlotte’s Bistro, Annie’s... The Roebuck was probably the first one I worked with and Outsider Tart are huge supporters too. What kind of events do you do? We hold workshops throughout the year and as Abundance is all not-for profit, we have to put on events to keep us going. Last year we put on The Edible High Road to coincide with the Chelsea Flower Show Fringe. This year we’re doing the Herbal High Road, which will be made up of herbal planting like lavender and rosemary bushes. We’re doing a big launch party on 18 May at the front of Union Jacks, with herb bread making and lots of activities for kids. abundancelondon.com 57

Cocktail Hour Bottom’s up! Absolutely explores west London’s finest cocktail bars

Sam’s Brasserie Tucked away nice and quietly from Chiswick High Road, Sam’s Brasserie literally does everything; from a solitary coffee to a three course dinner. The brassiere to the left of the entrance is spacious, well-lit and more family orientated, whereas the 55 seat bar is sleek with sofas in the corner, small tables in the middle and little cubicles lined up along the windows. On an instruction to ‘surprise me’, the barman was more than willing. He would start mixing and shaking, only going on a suggested spirit, and produced some amazing drinks. They say a good barman is meant to be able to judge what someone will like just by looking at them – well he got it pretty spot on. He also recommended the baby back ribs with the house marinade, which, in between mint juleps and old fashioneds, is about the best way to enjoy what the restaurant has to offer. To wash it all down we were given a Jaffa cake shot, just one of many of their many quirky drinks. TOP TIPPLE: MINT JULEP About as refreshing as it gets; Maker’s Mark whisky with lots of fresh mint and Gomme. Ideally should be drunk on top of a mountain with the sun beating down, but perching on the end of the bar will do just as well. samsbrasserie.co.uk

Ales & Tails In west London, there are more family-friendly gastro pubs than you can shake the proverbial stick at, but cocktail boozers are harder to seek out. Though not a dedicated cocktail bar, Ales & Tales in central Twickenham will keep all parties happy; popular on rugby match days with a huge selection of ales and lagers, but also providing an impressive array of innovative cocktails too (hence its clever name). There’s also full marks for style, with plush seating and a nod to east end cool by way of panels of House of Hackney wallpaper. Seasonal British produce is at the top of the menu and that

goes for both the exceptional food (devised by award-winning chef Tommy Cooney) as well as the drinks. The cocktails utilise delicious and unique ingredients such as rhubarb, tamarind infused gin and celery (though not all at once, you’ll be pleased to hear). TOP TIPPLE: TWICKENHAM FRUIT CUP This drink pays homage to the area’s most famous sporting export and combines Earl Grey infused gin, cointreau, lillet blanc and peach bitters topped off with ginger ale. alesandtails.co.uk

Smith’s

This stylish establishment is a welcome new hangout in Hammersmith, situated directly underneath the Brook Green Hotel. Small but perfectly formed, the atmosphere is brilliantly Prohibition-era irreverence (it almost feels as if you should be sneaking in after midnight), with contemporary twists in the lighting and cheeky artwork. The huge sharing platters are a step up from the bog-standard crisps and peanuts bar snacks, and as for the all important cocktail menu, Smith’s do a damn fine job on the classics (with no less than three varieties of Martinis) but it’s really worth opting for one of the innovative specials. Well, when in Rome. Make a night of it by hiring one of the cosy booths... who care’s if it’s on a school night? TOP TIPPLE: CHILLI WILLY This one will put hairs on you chest; Sipsmith vodka, passion fruit puree, lime juice, chilli infused syrup and topped off with a bright red frozen chilli. smithsw6.co.uk

Charlotte’s Bistro This classy bistro-cum-bar is a favourite with families and night owls alike – and the watering hole of choice for the numerous estate agents in the area. The cocktail list is surprisingly concise, with only eight cleverly monikered tipples to choose from, plus a polite P.S to point out that the amiable staff can make a classic or something bespoke upon request. Though gin is Charlotte’s liqour of choice (a

popular ‘gin school’ runs every Monday), the guys are happy to offer tasters of impressive homemade sloe gin, plumcello and mulberry gin, provided by local fruit pickers Abundance. There’s even a couple of pungent homemade bitters in apothecary style bottles. Seasonal produce is paramount at Charlotte’s and the menu changes on a monthly basis, so catch your new favourite while you can.

TOP TIPPLE: THIS IS NOT RHUBARB A witty take on Magritte’s Surrealist masterpiece, ‘Ceci nes pas une pipe’ (credit for the name goes to French waiter Kolin), this is a delicious, punchy cocktail made up of lemon juice, rhubarb jam and smoky tequila. charlottes.co.uk 59

Best of British

Chiswick favourite Annie’s recently celebrated their 10 year anniversary. Amy Broomfield checks out the secret behind the restaurant’s longevity (clue: it’s probably the portion sizes)

Annie’s

162 Thames Rd, W4 anniesrestaurant.co.uk 020 8994 9080

A

sk a Chiswickian (or do they prefer Chiswickite?) about Annie’s and they will likely get a little cagey. Hidden away on a residential street that runs parallel to the Thames, the restaurant has been a local secret for 10 years, and they like it that way. During the summer, diners sit outside, spilling onto the street, and in the winter it is a cosy little retreat to hide away from the cold. Annie’s is the kind of place where you go for a romantic meal, or an intimate catch up with friends. In the small, lower dining room, candlelight dances off the pink and purple rococo-styled interiors, while flowers in full bloom spill out of long-necked vases. The room has thoughtfully been designed to make you feel at home – and most people certainly seem to be. Almost everyone that came in during the two hours we were there, the staff knew by name, and those they

didn’t were treated like old friends anyway. Those expecting to eat lightly, won’t find that here. Founder Lorraine Angliss has 25 years experience as a restaurateur, so she knows a thing or two about feeding hungry clientele. Simply put, Annie’s was designed to serve what people wanted to eat: hearty portions and British classics – but these come with an added Mediterranean twist. We order cocktails to begin – mine is a refreshingly light margarita cosmopolitan while my dinner companion has the light raspberry bellini. Both might have been all the more perfect if it had been a summer’s day. While we await our orders, delicious aromas waft through the restaurant as the waiters deliver rustic chopping boards piled high with towering burgers, fish and chips, and shepherd’s pie. For starters, we go for large crispy circles of calamari that are deliciously soft and tender inside and not too chewy, and super soft scallops in a pool of

artichoke foam. I ask the waiter just exactly how big the house special main of half a roast chicken is, he optimistically tells me it is manageable. When our order arrives, I instantly know he has lied to me. But it is no bad thing; the bird is large, flavoursome, carefully seasoned and moist, while the sweet potato fries are moreish. I don’t make it to the side salad and I might not have noticed it at all if it hadn’t been balanced on my chopping board. Meanwhile, on the other side of the table, my guest is having trouble finishing an amply sized thick cut steak, served perfectly medium rare next to crisp chunky chips. The hot fudge brownie for dessert comes highly recommended, so we order one to share and it is a lovely, sticky and gooey cube with melting ice cream on top and definitely worth every single calorie. I can see why the locals are protective of Annie’s, if I lived nearby I would probably be just as precious. 61

t was a humid, grey day, and the whole world seemed to be on the roads. On the ten-lane highway that streamed out from Pudong International, not only did the drivers of unnecessarily large vehicles seem in an interminable rush, but they appeared happy enough to jostle illegally for tarmac space. But once Shanghai’s vertiginous skyscrapers began to emerge from behind the impenetrable mist, it was obvious we were all headed in the same direction. The city is split into two and the Huangpu River does the dividing. The Eastern side is Pudong, where I was myself staying at the marvellous Pudong Shangri-la Hotel, while Puxi is the other bank. It’s not hard to differentiate the two: Pudong is where you’ll find the modern buildings which make up the impressive Shanghai skyline, while Puxi contains the historical quarters, including the trendy French Concession. After a few hours refreshing myself, I left Pudong for Puxi by crossing the river by ferry to the world-famous Bund. The Bund, or the embankment, is a stage: when I was there, a quartet of middle-aged women were standing on individual platforms performing a Tai Chi routine, a saxophonist played on a stool beside

them, a cluster of old ladies chatted while they de-shelled a bucket of crawfish, while hundreds of people were snapping away keen to capture at least some of the magnificent backdrop. Also among the crowds were identikit just-married couples (I counted twenty-two), all decked out in Kate Middleton replica dresses and surrounded by friends throwing petals in the air. Weddings are big here. The Bund isn’t remarkably beautiful, but it is here that Chinese tourists, Shanghai locals

Banking Corporation and The Shanghai Club, remind of a long heritage. We may now know Shanghai, home to over 20 million, as an economic powerhouse, but often neglected is the fact that it was once a world leader in the 1920s. When China lost the First Opium War, Shanghai became an open port and saw international settlers open concessions in the city. The city benefited economically, but much of its modern-day infrastructure harks back to those early days in the 20th Century when the city was a breeding ground for business and global influences. A dark spell under Communist rule limited Shanghai from developing further, but of late, it has certainly returned to what it once was. And much more. Thankfully, not all of China is undergoing rapid expansion and change. In fact, Shanghai’s faithful retain of its colonial past is a trait witnessed in other cities. After a somewhat whistle-stop tour of the city, where I, among other things, enjoyed the shopping crush at Nanjing Road and ate copious amounts of delicious street food – watch out when eating the soup dumpling delicacy xiaolongbao, which explodes in your mouth and burn

‘Shanghai’s faithful retain of its colonial past is a trait witnessed in other cities’ and foreigners visitors, revel in quite how the various strands of this great metropolis have, over time, come together to create the enigmatic and unstoppable machine it is today. One need only look at the buildings: on Pudong, the Oriental Pearl TV Tower and the Shanghai World Financial Centre loom down as representatives of the money-spinning part of the city, whereas on Puxi, the Neo-Classical, Baroque and several Art Deco influences on several of the height-restricted buildings, including the former Hong Kong Shanghai

the tongue – I flew out in a south-westerly direction to Guilin. It’s calm here, and often touted as a Chinese tourist’s haven. It’s easy to see why. The noticeable absence of infrastructure, replaced instead by majestic cone-shaped, emerald green Karst mountains is soothing. Personally, I would never have assimilated such breathtaking topography with mainland China. My hotel, the Shangri-La Guilin, also reflected the change in pace. Where the Pudong was the luxurious multifaceted sanctuary-like hotel constantly ready to unwind any tired businessman, the Shangri-La at Guilin, where distant crickets are heard at night and tuneful birds are ever-present in the orchard and on the terrace, felt certainly more like a resort. With a landscaped garden, two swimming pools, which would no doubt come in handy throughout the tropical summers, and the translucent green Li River flowing just outside this hotel, the Shangri-La in Guilin evokes the same tranquillity the city has in droves. My time in Guilin, unsurprisingly, was spent mostly on or at least, always near to the Li River. On two consecutive days, I was

driven along the Osmanthus tree-lined streets (Guilin means Forest of Sweet Osmanthus) to the Zhuijiang jetty where I boarded a ferry for beautiful Yangshuo. The cruise meanders around the soaring ethereal mountains and their near-perfect reflection in the crystal-clear water. Minute fishing villages appeared to exist at the bottom of these densely forested green peaks, and we must have passed countless fishermen on their rickety bamboo rafts, clad in Asian conical hats. The cruise down this

built in the Yuan Dynasty over 700 years ago, and over Zongzi – bamboo wrapped rice and bean paste dumplings – looking down from above where a cascading set of terraces formed a ‘dragon’s backbone’ from the ridge of many hills, I was told of the Yao’s daily life, superstitions and dedication to following their ancestors’ norms. Remarkably, and unlike the speed I witnessed in Shanghai, nothing of theirs has changed for centuries. China moves at such an alarming rate, that one can’t help feel but destined to miss out on its latest development. We in the financially-hit West fear this: will we forever be behind? Only time will tell. But five days in China did at least teach me one thing: that no matter how it evolves, its inhabitants, a near 1.5 billion, are just as keen to hold on to what makes this old civilisation one of the most bewitching in the world today. Let’s hope they never let go.

‘It’s calm here, and often touted as a Chinese tourist’s haven. It’s easy to see why’ ribbon of water is made famous by the images naturally carved into the rock. The Elephant Trunk Hill is the best-known, and while others are hard to make out, looking out for them is tradition here. Tradition was what made a later visit to the Yao minority village, a people from the Guangxi Zhuang region, characterised by their vibrant red-hued clothes, and for women whose ankle-length hair can only be cut once married, special. That particular morning I had hiked up to the Longji rice terraces,

Food&Travel

HILLSIDE BEACH CLUB, TURKEY Don’t let the ‘all-inclusive’ label fool you; this isn’t your standard all-in hotel. For starters, the locale of the club is simply breathtaking – set against mighty hills, the apartments overlook the glistening blue water of the Mediterranean Sea. In the evening, which is when we both arrived and left, it is arguably more akin to a twinkling Turkish village than a luxury 330-room resort. Morning came arm-in-arm with the sun, and with it a fresh view of the club. Staircasing down the hill, the apartments were clearly designed to be as unobtrusive as possible. The enticing beach has its blue flag – a prestigious accolade awarded to only the most eco and beautiful beaches in the world – flying high, whilst the hotel’s

speedboats, catamarans and yachts float on the calm, clear water. You can’t help but want to dive in – good news for those looking for an active break. What’s more, with three restaurants to choose from, the food is as good as the view. As expected, on the menu are plenty of grilled fish dishes, as well as nutritious omelettes and fresh salads. Two of the restaurants offer à la carte dining; Pasha on the Bay is open for a light breakfast, with a Mediterranean menu in the evening, and Beach Bar serves a lighter lunchtime buffet and scrumptious Italian cuisine for supper. There are also plenty of activities to keep kids (both big and small) occupied – think volleyball, yoga, windsurfing, sailing and a range of indulgent spa treatments

courtesy of the hotel’s two beautiful spas. However, it’s not just about the kids – there’s also an adult only beach, aptly named Silent Beach, and a crèche-like area where younger kids can play and shout out of earshot. Bliss. Prices start from £118 pp per night for an A Type room on a full board basis. Children under 6 are free, whereas children between the ages 7 and 12 require a small payment of roughly £45.

STOKE PARK COUNTRY CLUB, SPA & HOTEL

STOKE PARK COUNTRY BARAKA HOUSE, CLUB, SPA & HOTEL WATAMU, KENYA The worst that can be said of Stoke Park is that leaving it is really rather a wrench. The stunning country club, spa and hotel set in the heart of Buckinghamshire has provided the location for films such as Goldfinger and Bridget Jones’s Diary and is just as impressive off the screen. The rooms manage to convey a classic style without being stuffy or cloying and the mixture of modern prints on the walls and the sumptuousness of the materials used strike a balance between elegance and a more contemporary edge. Although I may have been tempted to lounge in my lovely room throughout my stay I would have been missing out on perhaps the most outstanding aspect of the Stoke Park experience. Equipped with a prestigious, professional standard golf course and a multi award-winning Racquet Pavilion consisting of four hard courts, three indoor courts and six Wimbledon specification to dominate ‘Top 5 Sporting Hotels in the grass courts, the hotel is ideal for those World’ lists. It also doesn’t hurt that after who enjoy active holidays. In recent years engaging in a couple of sets you can kick the tennis offered by the Club has become back and relax in their beautiful spa. an essential part of the appeal of the resort Park Road, Stoke Poges, and has ensured that Stoke Park continues Buckinghamshire,SL2, stokepark.com

WILDFITNESS 9 DAY KICK START COURSE  BARAKA HOUSE, WATAMU, KENYA To many people a fitness holiday sounds like an oxymoron; holidays are about unwinding and letting go of stress, not compulsory exercise. Admittedly, I too subscribed to this school of thought but Wildfitness is not to be dismissed so easily. The wondrous, indescribable beauty of Watamu in Kenya (one of three locations to choose from) is enough to make the hardiest of sceptics catch their breath on arrival. The luxurious Baraka House, the accommodation provided by Wildfitness, is positioned on what is widely agreed to be one of the most beautiful beaches in the world and goes a long way towards shattering any preconceptions of Spartan discipline and hard work guests may have. The particular brand of exercise too is geared towards enjoyment and satisfaction rather than ruthless regimentation and consists of activities such as kick-boxing in the open-air Dojo and runs on the white sanded beaches. Although challenging at times the wide range of activities and the staggering loveliness of the country leaves you with a sense of mental and physical wellbeing along with a sincere feeling of achievement. What can I say, I’m a convert. Wildfitness.com

You may know us from walking your dog in the park, local charity events or simply recognise a familiar face; we walk the same streets and eat in the same restaurants you do. Of course, it’s also quite possible that you – or someone you know – has let or rented a property through us. We’ve been around for years and our success is built on the fact that people who use us once, tend to use us again. And tell their friends. Because most of our agents live in the areas in which they work, they really understand what matters to landlords and tenants there. Many agents will claim to know more about where you live than anyone else. But we understand it’s because people know us, that time and again we let and sell properties more quickly and more profitably than anyone else.

Brianna Joss Not just Brook Green’s most dominant letting agent – Brianna is immersed in the community: as a committee member of local charity ‘West London Action for Children’, or helping to organise a tennis tournament or quiz night. All done with an enthusiasm born out of a passion for the area and the people who live here.

IN THEIR

BRENDAN WYNNE, RICHMOND GROUP DIRECTOR, FEATHERSTONE LEIGH

I

didn’t exactly have the typical introduction to Estate Agency. Ten years ago I was a professional golfer and now I’m the Richmond Group Director for Featherstone Leigh. People regularly ask me why I gave up my golfing career, my response to which is, I had an epiphany. I woke up one morning and decided that actually, I didn’t want to do just one thing all my life. After a lot of deliberation I decided on a career in Estate Agency and somehow managed to land myself a job as a sales negotiator at Featherstone Leigh Richmond. Ten years on and I’m still here, working as the Richmond Group Director overseeing Richmond Sales and Lettings, Kew and Sheen Sales branches. Of all the places I have worked, Richmond is definitely my favourite. What’s great about staying in one place for so long are the relationships I have forged with our clients who continue to come back to us time and time again. Our team in the Richmond Sales office, Anthony, Richard, Henrietta, Stuart, Tom and Honey have a natural rapport with each other and their colleagues in the neighbouring offices. We currently have a number of attractive properties on the market, both to buy and to let, which is good news for potential purchasers and tenants. We have recently been instructed on a 5 bedroom family house with a large private garden on

Park Road, Richmond, just off the famous Richmond Hill. The wide open spaces and broad selection of shops and restaurants also add to my love of the area. There’s nothing I like more than a Sunday afternoon spent on Richmond Green in the sunshine, wandering along the banks of the River Thames or taking a stroll through Richmond Park. Weekends are the best time to see and experience Richmond, when there is an irresistible hustle and bustle of people of all ages shopping, dining and relaxing. I spend my free weekends on the golf course, which, despite stopping playing professionally years ago now, I really enjoy; I find it a great way to unwind. The property market has changed remarkably over the past 10 years, in particular, property prices. I’ve seen a big leap in prices for properties in Richmond. Recent months have seen tremendous activity with numerous buyers registering and a considerable number of viewings undertaken, resulting in many successful sales. This buying activity, combined with the continuing shortage of stock, has resulted in the vast majority of our sales being agreed at or close to their asking price. Looking towards Spring/ Summer 2013, I am confident the market will accelerate further, particularly the market for family homes, which tend to sell between Easter and High Summer.

DARLING BUDS OF MAY

PROPERTY NEWS MASTER CLASS

MAKING LETTINGS WORK FOR YOU... The first bit of advice I’d give to all landlords, is of course, to choose your estate agent carefully! Secondly, all landlords should spend some time preparing their property for the rental market. The recommended marketing price will relate to the quality, size and location of the property, but you can maximise this price with a fresh of lick paint and a good deep clean. Consider fixing that broken window or chipped tiling! ‘Dressing’ a property with soft furnishings and artwork will brighten up an empty flat. During viewings, make sure the property is a good temperature and light bulbs are all in working order. A good agent will also assist in organising the legal documentation, but the two main basics to remember are a Gas Safety Certificate and an Energy Performance Certificate Additionally, electrical certificates to prove the safety of wiring and appliances are recommended. Graeme Young, Lettings Manager at Marsh And Parsons, Brook Green 020 7605 7760; marshandparsons.co.uk

SAFE INVESTMENTS IN PROPERTY Four years on from the financial meltdown, Cyprus is the latest Euro Country to send shock waves

PROPERTY FOCUS AIMEE BRUCE, ASSOCIATE DIRECTOR AT FITZ-GIBBON

020 8892 8921; fitzgibbon.co.uk Most satisfying transaction I’ve had... We recently let a five bedroom Riverside property in Thames Crescent to a high level corporate tenant and achieved well over the asking price and delighted the landlord with our excellent service. Most interesting property I’ve been involved with... We’ve seen some amazing properties in the last couple of years from one of the oldest houses in Chiswick on Sutton Lane South dating back to 1650 to an island property in the Thames accessed by a hand pulled ferry!

Ask most estate Agents which holidays they can’t wait to see pass and the majority will say Easter. It might sound a little sour but not only should the temperature start to finally rise, but it also signals the start of the selling ‘season.’ As gardens begin to bloom and homes look brighter, more properties start to come on to the market. The last three months have teased us as usual; however everyone seems far more positive this year, than last, and the expected increase in stock levels, along with the volume and calibre of buyers registering, bodes well for May and beyond. Stephen Hardy, Sales Manager 020 8995 3076; swornandco.com through those with their savings still held by the banks. The lack of deposit security has fuelled the London property market throughout this period and this looks set to continue for the foreseeable future. Property remains a relatively “safe house” for people’s money and with the continual limited supply, prices and rental figures are almost certainly set to rise further. James Matthews, Director at Whitman & Co 020 8747 8800; whitmanandco.com The property I’d most like on books is... We are constantly in need of high quality property throughout Chiswick and West London for our huge applicant database but have a special demand in areas such as Brackenbury Village and Brook Green. Most unusual interior... I was stunned to discover an architecturally designed property on Grove Park Gardens which at the press of a button elevated the dining table into the air to reveal a swimming pool underneath. I never thought I’d see... I’m always amazed to meet some fantastic characters working in this industry and I have encountered people from all walks of life, we even get to meet a few celebrities along the way...Shh!

LEYSFIELD ROAD, W12 £1,925,000 – FREEHOLD

A map of London dated 1841 shows Goldhawk Road forming the southern boundary of Shepherd’s Bush Green. At that time, Shepherd’s Bush was still largely undeveloped and chiefly rural in character, with much open farmland compared to fast-developing Hammersmith. Todays maps paint a much different picture naturally. An exquisite, interior designed, family house arranged over three floors offer a great sense of space, excellent natural light and

beautifully proportioned rooms. There is also current planning permission to extend to the side creating an additional 900 square feet (approximately) of accommodation over three floors which would then make the house in excess of 2,750 square feet, off street parking and a 30’ x 33’ rear garden.

PROPERTY PROFILE

MOVING IN

NOTHING’S BETTER THAN THE INSIDE SCOOP. LOCAL AGENTS GIVE THEIR RECOMMENDATIONS...

INTERIOR INSPIRATION

LOCAL STREET

LOCAL HANGOUT

Philip Wooller, Director of Philip Wooller, 020 8811 2929. Sharaz Karim at Max Inc provides great inspiration with his vintage furniture and lighting, a lot of which is restored by himself. It is perfectly in tune with what people in the area want, and has helped us with factory lights and office chairs.

Jason Godfray, Branch Manager of Barnard Marcus, 020 8995 2345. Chiswick High Road is a mix of retail, restaurants, food outlets, office and hotel space. Devonshire Road boasts lifestyle and designer boutiques, art galleries, bars, restaurants and specialist shops. Highlights include the annual Summer Festival.

Gary Sinton, Director of Sinton Andrews, 020 8566 1990 . Munson’s in Olde Ealing is a great spot for a proper coffee with a homemade cake or delicious sandwich. They’re always doing a roaring trade especially after the school drop off and I invariably bump into one of my former clients, so get to enjoy catching up with them.

FACT

TIME OUT

Susan Fitz-Gibbon, Director of Fitz-Gibbon Limited, 020 8892 8921. This has to be the St. Margaret’s Pleasure Grounds. A well kept secret are the private grounds known as The Avenue, Lake and River Grounds, where the area is steeped in history and the properties around the grounds afford the luxury of private use of the acres.

Joseph Murphy, Sales Director of Orchards, 020 8995 9797. The Park Club is the answer for any mum who is after a bit of down-time and pampering. Their facials are simply rejuvenating and you have a moment to yourself away from the hustle and bustle. A must for Chiswick and Ealing mums.

KIDS Matt Thompson, Associate Director of Feather Stone Leigh, 020 8994 6567. At the weekend, my daughter turns part fish with a trip to the local swimming pool. Her real favourite place to go is Fouberts, where they serve incredible Italian ice cream, but she doesn’t get to go there as often as she would like to!
