Downsizing Dilemmas<br />

Professional property finder Mandy Bissell discusses some of the questions that need to be addressed<br />

when considering downsizing from a family home to something more manageable.<br />

After many years of living in a family home<br />

surrounded by memories and a familiar<br />

structure, the decision to move to a more<br />

manageable property can be a tough one<br />

and something that many choose to put<br />

off until life forces a decision. Many sellers<br />

continue to battle on maintaining a large<br />

garden and caring for an oversized house,<br />

whilst knowing in their hearts that they<br />

ought to move to a smaller and easier abode.<br />

So, what are the questions one should ask<br />

when toying with the idea of downsizing?<br />

When is the right time to downsize?<br />

The answer to this is uniquely personal.<br />

Obvious catalysts are when a partner<br />

dies, health fails or family settles far away,<br />

however, there are more subtle clues that<br />

when spotted can provide a good indication<br />

that it is time to consider moving to easier<br />

premises. These might include when you<br />

realise that you spend all your time in one<br />

or two rooms leaving the rest empty for<br />

most of the year, or when a previously wellmanicured<br />

garden becomes overgrown<br />

because the maintenance is too onerous.<br />

Or maybe you spend all winter in jumpers<br />

and a hat because heating your home is too<br />

expensive?<br />

It is hugely admirable to ‘bat on’, and if<br />

your love for your home outweighs the<br />

negatives then leave this article and<br />

move onto the next page. However, if<br />

you feel that you should be considering<br />

downsizing and fear of the unknown or a<br />

reluctance to face the challenge of selling<br />

and buying is putting you off, then please<br />

be reassured that help is at hand.<br />

Mandy Bissell GARRINGTON<br />

What options are available for sellers?<br />

Once the decision to move has been made,<br />

one of the initial questions to consider is<br />

what to do with the existing home. After<br />

living in the same home for maybe decades,<br />

the idea of entering the housing market,<br />

having photos of your personal spaces<br />

all over the internet, and buyers traipsing<br />

around can be particularly off putting.<br />

One option is to sell ‘off-market’ where<br />

a select few targeted, fully proceedable<br />

buyers are introduced to your property on a<br />

discreet basis, and the resulting sale can be<br />

transacted in a low key and calm manner –<br />

and normally at a pace that suits your needs.<br />

Common buying challenges to think about<br />

When downsizing, and choosing the<br />

type of house suitable for your next<br />

move, the challenge for many is to find<br />

somewhere that is smaller and easier<br />

to maintain (fit to lock up and go),<br />

but still big enough to accommodate<br />

the furniture that has filled a larger<br />

house and perhaps visiting family and<br />

grandchildren. Many want a reasonable<br />

sized garden, a character home, but not<br />

with the huge maintenance load, and a<br />

peaceful location within easy reach of<br />

shops, restaurants and social groups.<br />

Thinking longer term, many also like to<br />

consider issues such as no longer being<br />

able to drive or the need for more regular<br />

access to medical facilities. No doubt<br />

about it, there is a lot to consider.<br />

There is a growing trend for developers to<br />

offer over 55’s apartment blocks, purpose<br />

built to accommodate the needs of the<br />

ageing population with some offering<br />

on-call care services, social events,<br />

maintained gardens, communal areas<br />

etc. The appeal of these developments<br />

is clear, but buyers need to be careful<br />

when assessing the pricing of these<br />

homes as many will have (sometimes<br />

hefty) annual service charges, additional<br />

charges for parking and cleverly worded<br />

legal clauses. Indeed, buyers need to be<br />

fully aware of what is and is not included<br />

in the asking price.<br />

Other buying options include townhouses<br />

and or village homes, once again, buyers<br />

need to give careful thought to whether<br />

these are suitable long term options as<br />

needs and mobility changes.<br />

The property market, no matter which<br />

location or property type you are<br />

considering is forever changing. For<br />

even the most weathered of property<br />

buyers and sellers the complexities<br />

can be overwhelming; having a trusted<br />

advisor acting on your behalf and able<br />

to offer objective advice can lift the<br />

pressure at a time of great change.<br />

HOUSE OF THE MONTH<br />

1.<br />

Luxury Living<br />

Maggie Alderson finds homes with stunning kitchens and bathrooms<br />

It’s a fact of modern life that kitchens are the most important room when<br />

people are looking for a house to buy. No longer the pokey little space where<br />

mum arranged the slices of Spam and salad (two slices of tomato, three<br />

lettuce leaves and a foul spring onion) on the plates ready to pass through the<br />

hatch, it’s now the central family room where we chat, eat, watch TV, entertain<br />

friends, do homework, drink wine etc. And dance (not just me, right?).<br />

More surprising might be that the second most important room for house<br />

viewers now is the master bathroom. Of course, it’s an essential ‘facility’ (as<br />

in ‘would you like to use the facilities?’) but – as per the modern kitchen<br />

– it has also become something of a statement and status signifier.<br />

Being such a personal space, your choice of bathroom style is a key<br />

reflection of your taste and therefore, your personality and values. Vintage<br />

fittings, such as roll-top baths, wooden loo seats and Thomas Crapper<br />

elevated cisterns, suggest admiration for gentler bygone days. Even if one of<br />

those flushes is more like Niagara crashing down. While an ultra sleek space<br />

with a wall-hung lavatory and walk-in glass shower space indicates you’re<br />

likely to be wearing an Apple watch and prefer a virtual reality headset to a<br />

needlepoint canvas. Grayson Perry could do a whole series about the broader<br />

societal meaning of our bathroom choices (and I do wish he would).<br />

Once upon a time a room that was kitted out once when the house was<br />

built or first had indoor plumbing and then left. Since the advent of the<br />

avocado suite in the 1970s, bathroom fittings have increasingly become<br />

subject to fashions – and aspirations. Who these days doesn’t long for double<br />

basins, at least a touch of marble and a stand alone egg-shaped bath? Or<br />

perhaps ultra modern feature pedestal basins and wall-mounted taps? Or<br />

walls of built-in cupboards, with set-in basins and polished wood floors …<br />

Here are four houses currently for sale which have such dream bathrooms already fitted.<br />

1.<br />

1. Stede Court<br />

Where? Stede Court sits in a rural elevated<br />

position on the south slope of the North<br />

Downs within the Kent Downs AONB.<br />

The house commands wonderful views<br />

over rolling countryside across the Weald to<br />

Sussex, Romney Marsh and the Channel.<br />

It’s set on the rural periphery of the village of<br />

Harrietsham with primary school, shop, pub<br />

and station with links to London Victoria.<br />

What? Yer actual mansion, Stede Court<br />

is steeped in history, with records of a house<br />

on the site dating back to when William the<br />

Conqueror gave the site to his half-brother<br />

Odo. It combines architectural features<br />

from Tudor through to Victorian eras, with<br />

the south-facing grand façade a dreamy<br />

Georgian ideal. It’s equally fabulous <strong>inside</strong><br />

with numerous spacious reception rooms,<br />

an indoor pool and a contemporary eat-in<br />

kitchen. Upstairs there are eight bedrooms<br />

and four bathrooms, the one in the master<br />

suite of particular marbled splendour.<br />

How much? For ownership<br />

of this dream house, Jackson Stops,<br />

Cranbrook are seeking offers in excess<br />

of £2.8 million. Call them on 01580<br />

720000 and peruse jackson-stops.co.uk<br />

2. Tamarind<br />

Where? Tamarind sits at an elevated<br />

position in a rural location, with<br />

panoramic southerly views. It’s two<br />

miles from the delightful villages of<br />

Ticehurst and Etchingham, which has<br />

a mainline station, trains taking 1 hour<br />

15 mins to Charing Cross. Tunbridge<br />

Wells is just over twelve miles away.<br />

What? 10,400 square feet of<br />

exceptionally finished, high spec<br />

design, including the latest wireless<br />

systems for lighting, music, security<br />

etc, Tamarind is a 21st century take<br />

on the country house which retains<br />

a feel of traditional architecture on<br />

its exterior. Inside it has a vaulted<br />

reception hall, drawing room, dining<br />

room, study, breakfast room, with<br />

a kitchen of great splendour, plus<br />

a conservatory and leisure complex<br />

with a cinema and games room. The<br />

two upper floors have five bedrooms,<br />

all with adjoining bathrooms. The<br />

master suite is spectacular with a<br />

bedroom, a private sitting room –<br />

both looking out to the view – a<br />

dressing room and huge bathroom.<br />

How much? The house is priced<br />

at £3,600,000, marketed via Savills,<br />

Tunbridge Wells. Phone on 01892<br />

507000 and look online at savills.com<br />

3. Gun Green Oast<br />

Where? Gun Green Oast sits on<br />

a plot of six acres on a picture perfect<br />

country lane just outside the pretty<br />

village of Hawkhurst with its Waitrose<br />

and Kino cinema, opposite St Ronan’s<br />

School and in the catchment for<br />

Cranbrook School. Etchingham station,<br />

with trains to London Bridge in under<br />

1.5 hours is just over six miles away.<br />

What? This house really is the best<br />

of both worlds. From the outside it’s a<br />

classic twin roundel oast joined onto a<br />

white weatherboard barn section – but<br />

<strong>inside</strong> the converted interior has been<br />

renovated to the highest standard, in<br />

a very appealing contemporary design<br />

style. There is a wonderful open plan<br />

reception space, with the kitchen/dining<br />

room flowing through to a sitting<br />

room and a music room, in either<br />

roundel. There are five bedrooms and<br />

five bathrooms, all with stylish modern<br />

fittings. In the extensive landscaped<br />

gardens – irrigated via a spring system –<br />

is a detached studio, perfect for artistic<br />

endeavours or as a gym/yoga studio.<br />

How much? Gun Green Oast<br />

is on the market at £1,695,000<br />

with Knight Frank Tunbridge<br />

Wells. Call 01892 882682 or<br />

browse knightfrank.co.uk<br />

4. Brexon Court<br />

Where? Brexon Court sits east of<br />

the attractive village of Bredgar within<br />

a belt of AONB countryside, ten miles<br />

from Sittingbourne with its excellent<br />

one hour rail links to London.<br />

What? Dating back to c.1500 with<br />

beams and leaded windows, Brexon Court<br />

is one of the finest Grade II listed houses<br />

in the region, with astounding character<br />

and space – two of the bedrooms are big<br />

enough to have sofas at the end of the<br />

beds. The ground floor has a large kitchen/<br />

breakfast room augmented by a utility room<br />

and a walk-in larder, plus two cellars, three<br />

reception rooms, plus a very large hall. On<br />

the first floor the master bedroom has an<br />

adjoining shower room and a dressing room,<br />

and there are two more bedrooms, one en<br />

suite, plus a further family bathroom. There<br />

are another two bedrooms on the top floor.<br />

Outside there is a large barn/workshop<br />

with offices, a kitchen and bathroom, plus<br />

several other outbuildings, one of them<br />

kitted out as an entertainment suite with a<br />

bar and a loo. The gardens are mainly set<br />

to lawn with in keeping yew hedging.<br />

How much? Brexon Court is listed<br />

with a guide price of £1,750,000 with Fine<br />

and Country, West Malling. Phone 01732<br />

Ardingly will be filled with street performers, live<br />

music, a land train, a country sports village, acres of<br />

shopping, food courts and, of course, the animals<br />

will be the stars of the show with heavy horses,<br />

equestrian showing, showjumping, livestock parade<br />

and displays of prize winners. Buy tickets online for<br />

Behind the Face...<br />

Four award-winning Kent artists, Felicity<br />

an exhibition of contemporary portraits, at the<br />

Trinity Theatre Gallery in Tunbridge Wells from<br />

Monday 5 to Sunday 18 <strong>June</strong>. With examples of<br />

the commissioned and the personal, this exhibition<br />

highlights the influence a client’s requirements can<br />

have and questions what an artist could create when<br />

freed from these constraints. trinitytheatre.net<br />

This ladies’ cycle ride in aid of Pilgrims Hospices<br />

departs from the Freewheel Pub and Cycling<br />

your ability level, choose from either a 25 or 50<br />

mile route. The organisers are expecting over 250<br />

Editor’s<br />

Letter<br />

<strong>June</strong> is the month we’ve all been looking forward<br />

to – it’s time for <strong>Wealden</strong> <strong>Times</strong> Midsummer Fair.<br />

Come and meet our handpicked exhibitors from<br />

Thursday 8 to Saturday 10 in the stunning grounds of<br />

Hole Park in Rolvenden. There’s still time to pre-book your<br />

tickets at wealdentimes.co.uk to save time at the gate.<br />

In the magazine this month we’ve explored not two, but<br />

three interiors. The first, a quirky B&B, is a wonderful mix<br />

of unique vintage finds peppered with highstreet buys – all of<br />

which have been sourced to reflect the owners’ desire to create<br />

a truly pampering retreat for their guests. The second (and<br />

third) is a pair of flats in the same building, owned by two<br />

sisters and with wonderful views out to sea. See how they’ve<br />

stamped their personalities onto each home from page 84.<br />

Continuing our seaside summer vibe, Helen has been<br />

down to the coast to photograph a selection of beautiful<br />

seasonal outfits and Jo Arnell has created three ridiculously<br />

tasty recipes to make the most of irresistible soft fruit.<br />

Our <strong>Kitchen</strong> & <strong>Bathroom</strong> Supplement gives us the<br />

ideal opportunity to keep you up to date with the latest<br />

trends, fixtures and fittings – from contemporary islands<br />

to luxury bathing. Turn to page 111 to find out more.<br />

Find all this along with our regular round up of gardening<br />

advice, health and beauty news, plus a fantastic competition<br />

from Neptune on this issue’s penultimate page.<br />

Picture the perfect getaway. Where do you fancy? Paris?<br />

Rome? Or perhaps somewhere exotic and further away?<br />

Well, yesterday I might have been imagining a faraway<br />

place too, but today I want to stay in Rolvenden Layne. I<br />

only live down the road from this wonderful little bolt hole,<br />

but within two minutes of meeting Diane and glancing<br />

quickly around her gorgeously quirky apartment, I’m already<br />

wondering whether I could slip away for a few days. It is to<br />

die for – or at least, to lie down and dream in for a while.<br />

Diane’s dream, twenty years ago, was to move out of<br />

London and set up a business. “I wanted to move to the<br />

country and have an antique shop with a tearoom,” says<br />

Diane. “The idea was to mix and match; selling antique<br />

furniture while providing tea and cake.” The Old<br />

<br />

57 wealdentimes.co.uk


Left Diane has created her very own version of The<br />

Little Paris kitchen. She hasn’t been afraid to use dark<br />

colours in this low beamed house and has opted for a<br />

sophisticated dark grey – Farrow and Ball’s ‘Plummet’<br />

General Stores in Rolvenden provided the space for this<br />

perfect combination. The Stores is a lovely white weatherboarded<br />

building, following the vernacular style of the area.<br />

Originally built around 400 years ago, it had been a shop<br />

since the 1800s. It was looking worn and outmoded when<br />

the couple moved in and they had considerable work to do<br />

before setting up shop. “The people before us had been in<br />

their 70s or 80s and although there was nothing structural<br />

to do, it needed a lot of updating work.” Diane and Ian, an<br />

upholsterer (what a useful thing to be!), transformed the<br />

premises from tired and dull to vintage and appealing.<br />

They opened for business. It was enjoyable, but hard<br />

work running both a tearoom and an antiques shop, and<br />

after some years Diane decided to have a ‘rest’ – by going<br />

out to work – catering at the local pub (the Ewe and Lamb<br />

in Rolvenden) and at a florist’s in Rye. It was once her<br />

daughter, who had been using the space as an apartment,<br />

moved out, that Diane had the idea for a holiday let.<br />

Our conversation takes a philosophical turn at this point<br />

and I get a clue as to how Diane has managed to create such<br />

a well thought out and stylish look for the apartment. There<br />

is no clutter and nothing that doesn’t ‘fit’. Diane smiles. “I<br />

get up some mornings and have to turn everything around<br />

– and I don’t have photos or sentimental things,” she says.<br />

“I like to look ahead and don’t want to be held onto, held<br />

down. It gives you freedom. I’ve never had a job I’ve had<br />

to stick at, so I can be impulsive, with not much to lose.”<br />

This observation (which I’m now taking as a piece of life<br />

advice) reminds me of that saying by William Morris: “If<br />

you want a golden rule that will fit everything, this is it:<br />

Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be<br />

useful or believe to be beautiful.” To that sage sentence I<br />

shall add a summation of Diane’s sentiments: “Don’t look<br />

back, or be held down by material things.” I can now see<br />

that when you are free from attachment to the things you<br />

feel that you have to hang on to, then choosing a theme, or<br />

look is much easier. It is clear that too many possessions can<br />

bog one down (and turn into a terrifying hoarding habit<br />

Above: Diane finds a lot of her furniture and accessories at Ardingly Antiques Fair and through visits<br />

to Rye, Tenterden and The Three French Hens brocantes at Silcocks Farm Shop<br />

from what I see on the television), but it is hard to find the<br />

right things – and isn’t it expensive to start from scratch?<br />

“We had the chaise longue already,” says Diane, “but<br />

we were on a tight budget. Luckily Ian is handy, especially<br />

with upholstery.” She points to the seating in the sitting<br />

room, which has been masterfully re-covered. “It’s a bit<br />

of a team effort – when we go away for the weekend we<br />

look around for things.” Ardingly is a favourite haunt and<br />

Diane also visits Rye for inspiration, so they don’t always<br />

have to go far. She often goes to Tenterden where the<br />

Three French Hens hold their brocante sales at Silcocks<br />

Farm Shop. And, of course, there’s <strong>Wealden</strong> <strong>Times</strong><br />

Midsummer Fair just around the corner at Hole Park.<br />

Diane also manages to find quirky and interesting objects<br />

in high street chain stores and charity shops alike. The copper<br />

effect lampshade in the bedroom is from Dunelm, some <br />

61 wealdentimes.co.uk


Wherever they go though, Diane’s always on the lookout for more things that would<br />

enhance the apartment experience. “Every time I go and stay somewhere I’m looking<br />

for those little extra touches,” she says. “And every week that people come to visit<br />

I think of something else that will make their stay just a little bit special.”<br />

Above: Bargains and quirky finds have come from unexpected places and at different times: The copper effect lampshade in the bedroom<br />

is from Dunelm, some of the cushions and towels were from TK Maxx “I didn’t want to have to spend a fortune,” says Diane, “if I can find<br />

something for a tenner that works, then that’s good enough.”<br />

cooking area. The actual cooking space is just behind a glass<br />

partition. “We bought the window because I liked it,” says<br />

Diane. “We didn’t have an immediate use for it and then<br />

Ian saw that it could be used to make the partition.” Et<br />

voila, it has become a version of The Little Paris kitchen.<br />

Diane hasn’t been afraid to use dark colours in this low<br />

beamed house and has opted for a sophisticated dark grey<br />

(Farrow and Ball’s ‘Plummet’) on the walls of the sitting<br />

room, breaking it up with a wall of paler, striped wallpaper<br />

by Zoffany. “There were only two rolls left, which I bought<br />

for two pounds and there was just enough to do this space,<br />

with nothing to spare,” she laughs. The ceilings are painted<br />

white, beams and all, which seems to lift them and bounce<br />

light into the rooms. It takes imagination to bring everything<br />

together so successfully – and a strong sense of style, which<br />

Diane possesses in vintage spades. She is not always a big<br />

fan of some contemporary design ideas.“I see people in<br />

these massive granite kitchens and I don’t feel so much in<br />

love,” she says. “I think – where are your little curtains, your<br />

pots and crockery? I’m not old fashioned but I don’t like<br />

it when everyone’s houses look the same. I don’t want to<br />

see that they’ve been through the Next catalogue, or when<br />

you watch Grand Designs and there’s all that glass…”<br />

Outside the garden is separated into two areas – a private<br />

garden for Diane and Ian and a more formal, courtyardstyle<br />

garden for the guests. Privacy has been ensured with<br />

evergreen shrubs and topiary. It is very well clipped and<br />

helps to bring a chic, but verdant intimacy to the outdoor<br />

seating area. “The advantage of using mainly evergreens is<br />

that I can rely on it being the same throughout the year,”<br />

she says. “And then I can add seasonal colour in pots.” In<br />

the winter the whole garden twinkles with fairy lights and<br />

makes a magical space to look out into. The apartment’s<br />

French windows open onto a little terrace, which has just<br />

enough space for a table and two chairs. It is perfect – the<br />

essence of a Parisian balcony, albeit on the ground floor. <br />

Above: The apartment’s French windows open onto a little terrace, which has just enough space for a table and two chairs. It is perfect – the<br />

essence of a Parisian balcony, albeit on the ground floor.<br />

It is usually couples that come to stay at The Stores. “They<br />

might be people coming for weddings, or we’ve had a few that<br />

were exhibiting at the <strong>Wealden</strong> <strong>Times</strong> Fairs. Chapel Down<br />

vineyard is just around the corner and there are lots of lovely<br />

local gardens like Great Dixter and Sissinghurst nearby.”<br />

So where do the couple go on holiday? “We tend to go<br />

on short breaks. I don’t need long holidays, and I don’t<br />

need to go anywhere hot. Although I love the sun, as all<br />

my friends know, especially my little sun trap garden.”<br />

Wherever they go though, Diane’s always on the lookout<br />

for more things that would enhance the apartment<br />

experience. “Every time I go and stay somewhere I’m looking<br />

for those little extra touches,” she says. “And every week<br />

that people come to visit I think of something else that<br />

will make their stay just a little bit special. For instance, I<br />

put really nice shampoo out. I wouldn’t want just everyday<br />

shampoo when I’m away on holiday.” I notice that in the<br />

dining area there’s a big selection of stylish teas on offer –<br />

enough for a shop display – all beautifully stacked in an<br />

open drawer. It is these little added touches that make a<br />

big difference. “I wanted to make the B&B different…”<br />

Diane pauses thoughtfully, then adds, “quirky.” We stop<br />

for a moment and try to name the type of holiday home<br />

that The Stores is; searching for a term that perhaps doesn’t<br />

yet exist. “We want people to know that they can stay for<br />

longer than just a night or two, if they want to.” So, it is not<br />

just a simple B&B, not quite a hotel, not completely self<br />

catering – what would you call it – a Micro hotel? Guest<br />

apartment? It is certainly a private space, “but there is a<br />

linking door,” says Diane, “which I keep locked, so that <br />

areas – a private garden for Diane and Ian and a more<br />

formal, courtyard-style garden for the guests. Privacy has<br />

the guests have their privacy. Except at breakfast time.”<br />

Breakfast at The Stores is a performance – literally.<br />

Not only is there a wonderful choice of food, which Ian<br />

prepares (and William Morris would have approved of the<br />

line of highly decorative, and useful, egg beaters on display<br />

above the cooker), but Diane makes a huge effort and even<br />

dresses up for breakfast, wearing a charming polka dot dress<br />

and an apron, “It makes me feel the part, like I’m in The<br />

Little Paris <strong>Kitchen</strong>. Ian does a fantastic cooked breakfast<br />

and I serve the guests.” This is a warm and witty touch<br />

(but perhaps everyone in Paris dresses for breakfast?) and<br />

another sign of Diane’s careful attention to detail.<br />

Breakfast is far from the minds of the<br />

<strong>Wealden</strong> <strong>Times</strong> team today, however.<br />

It is teatime and Diane has baked some<br />

delicious scones, served (in the proper<br />

English way) with clotted cream and<br />

choice of three bespoke tipsy jams. It is<br />

the perfect end to a delicious visit. Sadly,<br />

much as I’d like to stay on and book<br />

myself in for the night, it’s time to go. If<br />

Diane’s guests are made to feel only half<br />

as welcome as we have been, then they<br />

are in for a huge treat at The Stores.<br />

Previous pages & this page: The downstairs flat’s dining area is<br />

almost a mirror image of the flat above (pictured above), except<br />

with antique pieces<br />

In some families, things seem to go in twos. When<br />

Susie McLean told her older sister that the flat directly<br />

underneath her weekender on the West St Leonards sea<br />

front had come up for sale, Caroline Egan jumped at the chance<br />

to buy it with her, so they now own the two of them together.<br />

While they are explaining this to me, as we sit in the<br />

light-filled sitting room of the lower apartment, Susie’s<br />

twin sister Jen, with whom she runs a film location catering<br />

company, is upstairs making the last tweaks to the upper<br />

flat to make it camera perfect. So you have twin flats,<br />

twin sisters and a lovely warm family feeling to it all.<br />

There’s also a bit of a magical air to the characterful<br />

Edwardian building the flats are in, which has a stunning<br />

semi-circular ‘captain’s window’ in the top flat, looking across<br />

a small park and out to sea. The stairway from the lower<br />

flat up to Susie’s original bolt hole, adds to that feeling.<br />

There’s something rather Famous Five about walking<br />

out of one front door, scuttling up the stairs – past<br />

the wonderful ‘steam trawler’ sign Susie bought in an<br />

antique shop in Norman Road – and in through the<br />

front door of another flat. It would be very easy to<br />

imagine doing it in pyjamas… with a lot of giggling.<br />

And there also seemed to have been a sprinkling of fairy<br />

dust about the way Susie found the original flat ten years ago.<br />

“When my daughter was four,” says South London-based <br />

87 wealdentimes.co.uk


Top: An amazing captain’s window is the stand out feature of the sitting room in the upstairs flat Above right The kitchen tucks neatly into a room<br />

at the rear of the flat Above left: An armchair upholstered in a patchwork of Ikat provides the perfect place to sink into after a day at the seaside<br />

Susie, “I began to think it would be lovely to have somewhere<br />

by the sea to go to at weekends. Me and my three sisters spent<br />

our childhood holidays with our grandparents in Lyme Regis,<br />

but that was too far to go from London for a weekend.<br />

“One day I just had this inspiration that I should look<br />

in Hastings. That very afternoon I opened the Evening<br />

Standard and in the homes section there was a picture<br />

of a flat in Hastings with a lovely window, for sale.”<br />

The next morning she was standing in it and thinking<br />

it was even better than it had looked in the paper.<br />

“But I thought, ‘I can’t buy the first place I look at…’<br />

so I dragged my four-year-old round five more flats<br />

– and then came back and bought the first one.”<br />

Adding to the luck of that chance sighting was that<br />

Above: The front bedroom of the upstairs flat is very light and feminine, with a white fireplace and over mantle mirror, a lovely old brass<br />

bed and a temptingly squashy armchair<br />

Susie bought the flat from Andy and Christine Cowle, of<br />

the well-known Bexhill antiques emporium Eras of Style.<br />

“I was so lucky,” says Susie, “because it was already impeccably<br />

decorated by Andy and Christine and I was able to buy some<br />

of the furniture from them, so it was all there waiting for us.”<br />

While that flat was very much bought to be a seaside escape<br />

for Susie and her daughter, that little girl is now a teenager<br />

and more interested in spending her weekends at home, where<br />

her school friends are, than eating ice creams on the beach.<br />

So it was another stroke of luck when, two and a half<br />

years ago, just as Susie was starting to rent the flat out<br />

on holidaylettings.co.uk and Airbnb – managed by her<br />

friend Sarah Thompson – the one below came on the<br />

market. Susie could immediately see the potential for<br />

letting them both out – either separately, or together<br />

for one larger party, joined by those quirky stairs.<br />

Big sister Caroline, a north London-based garden designer,<br />

immediately saw the potential – and was excited about<br />

the prospect of refurbishing it as a joint project, which<br />

was a good thing, considering the state it was in…<br />

“It was filthy… in a terrible state,” says Susie. “We<br />

gutted it and put in a new kitchen and bathroom<br />

and stripped the doors and floors to freshen it.”<br />

“We really wanted to please ourselves,” adds<br />

Caroline. “To make something completely from<br />

scratch with a contemporary/vintage feel.”<br />

Looking around the airy room, painted a beautiful pale<br />

sea blue and drenched in that special seaside light, it’s<br />

easy to imagine what a haven it would be for a stressed<br />

city dweller, sorely needing a break – which was exactly<br />

their aim. “We wanted to keep it simple so every piece<br />

in here had to earn its place,” says Caroline. “We didn’t<br />

want it to be cluttered, because that’s not relaxing.”<br />

Even the sofa, from SofasWorld, was chosen with relaxing<br />

holiday makers in mind. “We wanted something really big,”<br />

says Caroline, “for people to lie on and read a book.”<br />

While that sofa is from a big online company, the vast<br />

majority of the furnishings in both flats were sourced<br />

close to home – whether that is home defined as within<br />

walking distance of the St Leonards flats, favourite<br />

emporia near their London houses, or legacies from<br />

their parents’ and grandparents’ family homes.<br />

A quick glance round the sitting room tells the story.<br />

The glass side table is from The Kula, the fish print from<br />

the yard in Courthouse Street and the light fitting from<br />

Nelson Antiques, all in Hastings Old Town. The glasses<br />

on the table are from Eras of Style, the wall sconces from<br />

an antique shop on Norman Road and the seagull artwork<br />

from the gallery in Marine Court. Local heroes all.<br />

The side tables are from a shop near Caroline’s home<br />

<br />

91 wealdentimes.co.uk


Above left: A long corridor passes from the front to the back of the upstairs flat, between the sitting<br />

room to the rear bedroom Above right: The compact bathroom has a cool nautical feel<br />

in Highgate and the standard lamp from Angelo’s Lighting<br />

– an iconic north London source. And if they couldn’t find<br />

what they wanted, near home or online, they had it made.<br />

“The dining table was too high,” says Susie, “or perhaps the<br />

chairs we had were too low… Either way, it wasn’t working<br />

so we had Patrick Seaman from Werewolves of London make<br />

us some chairs specially, with a bench to go opposite.”<br />

Heading on to look at the nearest bedroom we pass by the<br />

kitchen, which is lovely and light from a large aperture they<br />

had put through the wall to the sitting room. On the other<br />

side, a utility area leads out onto a delightful balustraded<br />

balcony, one end panelled with tongue and groove painted<br />

a very marine shade of blue. It’s the perfect place to sit<br />

and enjoy the view and the sea air. “It gets afternoon sun,”<br />

says Caroline, “and the house next door provides perfect<br />

shelter from the prevailing south westerly wind.”<br />

While it wouldn’t be right to call the bedroom behind<br />

the terrace the ‘master bedroom’ because all three of them<br />

are special in both flats, it does have a very specific and<br />

thrilling feature: a raised ‘princess and the pea’ bed.<br />

They commissioned this from Mike and Kerry of<br />

Woodworks 1066 - a business so local, it’s a four-minute<br />

drive from the flats - to be high enough for guests to able<br />

to sit and look out of the window at the sea from it. There<br />

is storage underneath and steps up, which would make you<br />

feel very special getting in to it. Woodworks 1066 also made<br />

the mirror mounted on the chimney breast beside the bed.<br />

The bedside tables were customised by their builder<br />

John Gair, who did all the work on both apartments,<br />

stripping them and adding shells to the top, to reflect<br />

the octagonal table with shells under glass, by the<br />

window, which Susie found in a rummage-about<br />

One upstairs bedroom has a complementary masculine feel, with the air of a gentleman’s<br />

club in the leather chair, velvet curtains, horse painting and the ‘New Antique Books’<br />

wallpaper by St Leonard-based wallpaper designer Deborah Bowness.<br />

95 wealdentimes.co.uk


This page: A monochrome floral duvet set and textured white throw soften the masculine feel of one of the bedrooms in the top flat<br />

second hand shop on London Road, St Leonards.<br />

A Lloyd Loom chair and a chest of drawers are<br />

the only other pieces of furniture in the room – a<br />

deliberate choice inspired by their intention to keep<br />

the space as uncluttered and restful as possible<br />

“People are staying for a week maximum,” says Caroline,<br />

“so they don’t need a lot of storage – just a chest of drawers<br />

and the row of hooks to hang things on. We store the spare<br />

bed linen in the drawers under the bed. It keeps the light and<br />

space in the room, which adds to the sense of relaxation.”<br />

The first of the back bedrooms, which looks onto the<br />

garden and the dramatic rock face of the hill behind the<br />

terrace of houses, has an equally calm atmosphere, although<br />

it is furnished more richly with lovely old pieces, in charming<br />

period keeping with the lilac-painted walls. Particularly<br />

striking is the antique kilim which Susie found at a wellknown<br />

antiques centre near her home in Crystal Palace.<br />

The leaf print next to the bookshelves illustrates<br />

another theme of the décor of both flats; it’s been<br />

lurking in Susie’s garden shed for years. In a similar<br />

vein, the maps on the adjacent wall belong to Caroline’s<br />

husband and were liberated from their attic.<br />

Completing their range of sources in this one room,<br />

the eiderdown was their grandmother’s and the art deco<br />

mirror over the fireplace was bought from Eras of Style.<br />

Moving on to the twin bedroom, with its lovely fern theme,<br />

inspired by the vegetation in the garden it overlooks, the same<br />

mix of sources applies. The Victorian mirror was a find by <br />

There’s something rather Famous<br />

Five about walking out of one front<br />

door, scuttling up the stairs – past<br />

the wonderful ‘steam trawler’ sign<br />

Susie bought in an antique shop in<br />

Norman Road – and in through the<br />

front door of another flat<br />

Left: The final bedroom upstairs is very<br />

much a child’s sanctuary, featuring a<br />

dolls’ house made for Jen’s daughter<br />

Caroline from an antiques centre equivalent to<br />

Susie’s spot in Crystal Place, in her north London<br />

’hood, while the magnificent brass curtain<br />

rail and hooks are from Susie’s shed stash.<br />

Other furnishings in this room reflect their<br />

use of local businesses. The fern wallpaper is<br />

from Vintage Bird in Hastings Old Town and<br />

while the curtains are from Next, they had<br />

them lengthened to reach the floor by getting<br />

the needleworkers at Little Sew and Sew in<br />

St Leonards, just five minutes walk along the<br />

road, to add some green fabric at the bottom.<br />

This ultra local sourcing continues, in the<br />

bathroom just across the hallway, with vinyl from<br />

what is literally the very nearest flooring shop.<br />

It’s an excellent way to shop, if you don’t want<br />

to spend precious free time schlepping about<br />

and even though they bought all the bathroom<br />

fittings from a bathroom supply shop in London<br />

– it’s one Susie’s used for every bathroom she’s<br />

renovated. Local and/or loyal is the mantra here.<br />

“We wanted an Edwardian look for the<br />

bathroom,” explains Caroline, “in keeping<br />

with the period of the building, not a modern<br />

bathroom. But we did want a bigger shower,<br />

because that’s nice when you’ve come from the<br />

beach, so we put in a smaller bath to accommodate<br />

it. The key thing is people still have the choice.”<br />

The mood of the upstairs flat is pleasingly the<br />

same – but different. The tongue and groove<br />

panelling which runs hip height along both<br />

hallways up here is painted a sunny bright<br />

yellow, downstairs it’s a sophisticated mulberry.<br />

The set up of a lovely wooden dining table<br />

with chairs on one side and a bench seat on the<br />

other, with a splendid painting hanging above<br />

it, is like a mirror image of downstairs, except<br />

these pieces are antiques, which Susie bought in<br />

situ from Andy and Christine of Eras of Style.<br />

That amazing captain’s window<br />

<br />

wealdentimes.co.uk


This page: In the downstairs flat’s open plan sitting<br />

and dining area the dining table was too high, so Susie<br />

commissioned Woodworks 1066 to make some chairs<br />

specially to fit it, with a bench to go opposite<br />

is the stand out feature of the room, with<br />

two lovely squashy sofas, from sofa.com, for<br />

double lounging with a book potential.<br />

In the characteristic mash up of sources, the<br />

mid-century sideboard is another find from<br />

Susie’s Crystal Palace emporium, the armchair<br />

upholstered with a kilim was found in Hastings<br />

Old Town and the wheatsheaf wall light from<br />

Sideshow Interiors in Norman Road.<br />

The wonderful carved wooden throne at<br />

the head of the dining table belonged to their<br />

father and the splendid Turkish rug was a gift<br />

from a friend, who found it at the oriental<br />

carpet specialist in West Peckham.<br />

Just as in the downstairs flat, the three bedrooms<br />

on this floor each have their own, very appealing<br />

personality (and there’d be none of those classic<br />

holiday fights over ‘who’s having the naff room?’).<br />

The front bedroom, painted the same light sea<br />

blue as the sitting room downstairs, is very light<br />

While it wouldn’t be right to call the bedroom behind the terrace the ‘master bedroom’ because<br />

all three of them are special in both flats, it does have a very specific and thrilling feature: a<br />

raised ‘princess and the pea’ bed.<br />

<br />

103 wealdentimes.co.uk


Right: Susie found the antique kilim in one bedroom in an<br />

antiques centre near her home in Crystal Palace<br />

Below: The twin bedroom features a fern theme, inspired<br />

by the vegetation in the garden it overlooks<br />

and feminine, with a white fireplace and over mantle<br />

mirror, a lovely old brass bed and a temptingly squashy<br />

armchair. As in its equivalent directly below, there’s<br />

a shell table, this one filled with beach treasures<br />

picked up by their mother ‘all over the world’.<br />

The bedroom behind it has a complementary<br />

masculine feel, with the air of a gentleman’s<br />

club in the leather chair, velvet curtains, horse<br />

painting and the ‘New Antique Books’ wallpaper<br />

by St Leonard-based wallpaper designer Deborah<br />

Bowness. Most of the furniture and objects in<br />

this room are from their father’s house.<br />

The final bedroom is very much a child’s sanctuary,<br />

featuring a dolls’ house made for the daughter of their<br />

sister Jen. Susie found the lovely wooden shutters in a<br />

skip – and deliberately didn’t have them renovated.<br />

Let out together the flats sleep twelve and it’s<br />

impossible not to imagine excited children running<br />

up and down between the two – perhaps taking<br />

turns to hop up the steps into the princess and<br />

the pea bed – in a spirit of close family fun<br />

very much in keeping with the owners.<br />

Meet the<br />

Makers<br />

We go behind the scenes to find out what inspires a<br />

bespoke kitchen design<br />

The Maker: Charlie Kingham<br />

What was the brief?<br />

The brief for this turn-of-the-century Edwardian house<br />

by the park in west London, was similar to many we get<br />

these days from families seeking to create a living space<br />

that sits comfortably with today’s busy lifestyle, meaning<br />

it must have more functionality than just being a kitchen.<br />

We worked round this by incorporating a large island<br />

which was also a breakfast bar, a bespoke larder and a fun,<br />

yet convenient, ladder to access the high cabinetry.<br />

What was it made from/finished in?<br />

The hand-painted shaker style kitchen was given a contemporary<br />

theme with a traditional foundation. The cabinetry is all bespoke<br />

and made in frame with oak finish internals. The worktop<br />

chosen was Honed Bianco Eclipse Quartzite with a pencil edge.<br />

What appliances did it incorporate?<br />

The appliances used were all Miele. This included a fridge,<br />

freezer, dishwasher, extractor and microwave, all of which<br />

were integrated into the cabinetry to create an uninterrupted,<br />

clean cut look and to utilise all of the space available.<br />

The Lacanche Cluny classic range in ivory is a<br />

statement piece which complements the simple<br />

cabinetry style with its brushed stainless steel trim.<br />

Were there any special requirements for the client?<br />

The clients required a lot of storage space for their growing<br />

clan. So up we went, the only problem there was how<br />

to reach! We added rolling ladders to give access to these<br />

higher cabinets and created matching bar stools in a<br />

beautiful vintage oak patina to complete the look.<br />

How much would a kitchen like that cost?<br />

£19,000<br />

Charlie Kingham 020 7935 2255 charliekingham.co.uk


The Maker: Jones Britain<br />

What was the brief?<br />

The Cooper Kelly <strong>Kitchen</strong> in Crowborough stands out in the<br />

mind as it was both challenging and different on many levels.<br />

The strong edges and bright colours really gave the kitchen a<br />

personality that could be felt when you entered the room.<br />

To design an industrial inspired room that was bold, brave<br />

but also functional. The couple had clear ideas about the<br />

vibe that they wanted their kitchen to have, and their<br />

experience of exotic hotels and bars around the world was<br />

a strong influence in the ambience that they wanted to<br />

create. There were also specific design elements to include,<br />

for example incorporating curved units and a mixture of<br />

working surfaces at different heights, as well as making an<br />

existing structural pillar a feature rather than concealing it.<br />

What was it made from/finished in?<br />

A mixture of washed and stained oak and lacquered<br />

matte painted doors, concrete worktop with endgrain<br />

oak butcher’s block accent and black paper bar. The floor<br />

was a mixture of bespoke tiles and engineered wood.<br />

The splashback was installed in bronzed mirror.<br />

What appliances did it incorporate?<br />

State of the art Miele ovens side by side, downdraft<br />

extractor, gas hob, a hidden wine cooler with touchto-open<br />

door and an elegant stainless steel sink, fullyintegrated<br />

dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer.<br />

American fridge freezer that dispenses water and ice.<br />

Were there any special requirements for the client?<br />

Curved units were essential and a mixture of different<br />

working surfaces at different heights were requested. The<br />

client wanted the pillar holding half the house up to be visible<br />

but linked in some way. The polished concrete worktops<br />

were also poured in situ to create the desired effect.<br />

How much would a kitchen like that cost?<br />

As all of our projects are bespoke based on your requirements<br />

we work within a pre-determined budget. This kitchen<br />

came in at a budget of around £80,000-£90,000.<br />

The Maker: Peter Alexander Cabinets<br />

What was the brief?<br />

The property is an extremely old farmhouse and, after much to-andfro,<br />

my clients got permission for a small extension. The couple are<br />

very keen home-chefs and wanted an aesthetically pleasing, highlyfunctional<br />

kitchen that wouldn’t dominate the limited space.<br />

What was it made from/finished in?<br />

The kitchen cabinet internals use an engineered board,<br />

which is as hard wearing as a surface can be, looks great and<br />

doesn’t cost the earth… in both the financial and ecological<br />

sense. The painted components use tulipwood, due to its<br />

excellent finishing properties. All drawer boxes are solid<br />

oak, with traditional dovetail joints. The finish is a specialist<br />

spray-applied paint, and the worktops are Silestone.<br />

What appliances did it incorporate?<br />

My clients chose a stunning Everhot range cooker. They also<br />

opted for a standard integrated fridge freezer, a separate integrated<br />

fridge, an integrated wine cooler and an integrated dishwasher.<br />

Were there any special requirements for the client?<br />

There weren’t any unusual requests, just to maximise<br />

storage space. This was achieved with a pair of large larderunits<br />

to house all of the food storage required.<br />

How much would a kitchen like that cost?<br />

A kitchen like this would be in the region of £12-<br />

£15,000. There is a never-ending range of options to ‘spec’<br />

things up or down, though, to suit most budgets!<br />

WT <strong>Kitchen</strong> & <strong>Bathroom</strong> Supplement<br />

The Maker: Neptune<br />

What was the brief?<br />

A contemporary style kitchen required to suit a modern new<br />

build property, with a sociable open plan living arrangement,<br />

decorated in light/neutral colours/tones and tactile finishes.<br />

The design included a large island with seating arrangement,<br />

along with a bank of full height cabinets to house the majority<br />

of the appliances and the statement Limehouse larder.<br />

What was it made from/finished in?<br />

Tulipwood, plywood and oak, with a handpainted finish in<br />

Neptune ‘Lily’ externally and Neptune ‘Fog’ internally.<br />

What appliances did it incorporate?<br />

A stainless steel sink by Neptune, Neff Hide and Slide ovens,<br />

steam oven, microwave and dishwashers, Neff fully integrated<br />

full-height fridges and freezer and a Bosch wine cooler.<br />

Were there any special requirements for the client?<br />

Dropped ceiling created to house large flush ceiling<br />

mounted extractor, not only functional but forming an<br />

interesting feature – the horizontal LED strip lighting<br />

incorporated reflects the LED lighting installed to the<br />

underside of the worktop above the cabinet doors. A cabinet<br />

was also adapted to conceal the main manifold for the<br />

underfloor heating system – with storage space above.<br />

We worked with the architect to ensure that the worktop ran in<br />

line with the top of the window frame, to conceal it, as one of<br />

the main features of the dwelling are the ‘frameless’ windows.<br />

How much would a kitchen like that cost?<br />

The Limehouse kitchen by Neptune is contemporary<br />

and sleek, however being a Neptune product, we use<br />

only natural materials and traditional craftsmanship in<br />

the cabinetry. To supply the cabinetry cost £27,500.<br />

Installation of cabinetry was £4,250. Supply, template and<br />

installation of worktop cost £6,225. LED lighting was<br />

£500. All appliances (as listed above) came to £9,000.<br />

This recent J M Interiors project<br />

showcases how an island really can<br />

take centre stage in your kitchen.<br />

The J M team think an island<br />

should perform 3 functions; it<br />

should be practical with plenty of<br />

storage, it should host sufficient<br />

seating for guests and it should<br />

look good. This example most<br />

definitely ticks all of these boxes<br />

along with some bonus features;<br />

a sleek induction hob and<br />

downdraft extractor providing a<br />

cooking hub for the social cook<br />

and an adjoining bench seat and<br />

table – making this kitchen an<br />

entertainer’s dream. The island<br />

is painted in Farrow & Ball’s<br />

‘Railings’ which gives a stylish,<br />

dramatic contrast to the rest of the<br />

kitchen cabinetry.<br />

4 Steps to a Fabulous <strong>Kitchen</strong><br />

Embarking on a new kitchen project is an exciting time, but it can also feel a little<br />

overwhelming. Follow these four simple steps to ensure you get things right…<br />

Function<br />

It’s easy to get carried away<br />

with paint samples and Pinterest<br />

boards, but before you think<br />

about how your new kitchen is<br />

going to look it is vital that you<br />

give careful consideration to<br />

how you are going to use it.<br />

Keen chefs will want to consider<br />

appliances such as a steam oven<br />

or sous vide, while those with<br />

limited space should prioritise<br />

clever storage and those who<br />

enjoy entertaining may want<br />

to factor in some informal<br />

seating or a wine fridge.<br />

Space<br />

Think about how you can get the<br />

most from the space you have.<br />

A bespoke kitchen manufacturer<br />

should be able to work around<br />

any awkward spots to maximise<br />

every inch that is available. If you’re<br />

considering building work it’s<br />

also worth appointing a designer<br />

early on, so you can get a rough<br />

idea of your desired layout and<br />

any associated building needs<br />

before the build takes place.<br />

Design<br />

“It is vitally important that you find<br />

a designer that you can work with<br />

and whom you feel can translate<br />

your ideas well.” says John<br />

Stephens, Managing Director of<br />

Kent based kitchen manufacturer<br />

consider the final look of your<br />

kitchen. “Computer generated<br />

with a clear illustration of how<br />

their finished design will look.”<br />

“It’s also at this point that you can<br />

consider colour schemes and any<br />

extra details you may want, such as<br />

handmade cutlery inserts or spice<br />

racks. We believe these finishing<br />

touches make all the difference<br />

to our kitchens; ensuring they<br />

always look great, work brilliantly<br />

and stand the test of time.”<br />

Legal<br />

Get Your Life in Order<br />

Three legal experts share important advice on planning for the future<br />

Credit: FreeImages.com/Shho<br />

Preparing, Planning and<br />

Protecting your Estate<br />

James Beresford, Slater and Gordon<br />

What happens if I don’t have any plans in place?<br />

“If you die without leaving a valid will, you are treated<br />

as having died intestate. This means that your estate will<br />

be divided in accordance with the law. This may mean<br />

that people whom you do not wish to inherit from your<br />

estate may do so. It is not necessarily a certainty that your<br />

husband, wife or civil partner will inherit all of your estate.”<br />

Should my partner and I have a joint will?<br />

“There is no such thing as a ‘joint’ will. Each person<br />

will make their own individual will. What you can do<br />

is have wills that mirror each other in their terms. It<br />

very much depends upon your family dynamics as to<br />

whether your wills should do so however. It also depends<br />

on the family scenario and the assets involved.”<br />

What grounds could there be for my will to be contested?<br />

“Wills can be contested in certain circumstances only.<br />

There are limited categories of people who can claim against<br />

your estate if they feel that they have not been sufficiently<br />

provided for. Your will could also be challenged if you did<br />

not have the requisite capacity to create a will and also that<br />

you lacked knowledge and approval of the contents.<br />

Whilst there is nothing that you can do to prevent a claim<br />

being brought against your estate it will be harder for a<br />

claim to be brought, if you take appropriate specialist<br />

legal advice from a suitably qualified solicitor. He or she<br />

will be able to express your wishes in your own words and<br />

put plans in place to ensure that they are met.”<br />

<br />

Legal<br />

What are lifetime gifts and how do they work?<br />

Simon Leney, Cripps<br />

The only downside is that you<br />

make yourself poorer, although<br />

for inheritance tax saving<br />

that is the whole point!<br />

“It’s common knowledge that if you gift money, assets or valuables<br />

seven years before you die, you are free of inheritance tax. There is no<br />

limit to how much you can gift. If you give away more than £3,000<br />

in a tax year (the previous year’s unused allowance can also be used)<br />

and you don’t survive the gift by seven years, the surplus is added<br />

back to the value of your estate at death for the purpose of calculating<br />

inheritance tax. There is no penalty – the inheritance tax is no more<br />

than it would have been had you kept the value in your estate and<br />

actually it will be slightly less due to use of the annual allowance.<br />

Where you as the giver continue to benefit from the gift,<br />

it will be deemed to be a gift with reservation of benefit,<br />

meaning the seven year ‘clock’ does not start. If at a later stage<br />

part of the gift is returned to you or spent on your behalf, the<br />

part of the gift will be treated as a gift with reservation.<br />

Lifetime giving – accelerating inheritance by your heirs for<br />

example – has many benefits, not least the pleasure of seeing your<br />

gift being enjoyed. The only downside is that you make yourself<br />

poorer, although for inheritance tax saving that is the whole point!”<br />

Probate<br />

Richard Hearne,Whitehead Monckton<br />

What is it?<br />

“Probate is the legal process whereby the Will of a deceased<br />

person is submitted to Court to be ‘proved’ as a valid public<br />

document, that is the true ‘last Will and testament’ of the<br />

deceased. In the case of an intestacy (when the deceased<br />

died without leaving a Will), there is a similar process but<br />

in this case the applicant is the person or persons entitled<br />

to the estate under the rules of intestacy. In each case, the<br />

Court will issue either a Grant of Probate or (in the case<br />

of an intestacy) a Grant of Letters of Administration.”<br />

When is it needed?<br />

“Probate is not always needed and depends upon the assets held<br />

by the deceased. For example, property held as joint tenants<br />

will pass automatically to the surviving owner. In the case of<br />

cash assets, the need for Probate depends upon the amount<br />

held with the bank. Advice should be sought from a solicitor<br />

at the outset to establish whether or not Probate is required.”<br />

How do you apply for Probate?<br />

“The process of applying for Probate differs depending on<br />

whether the estate is subject to Inheritance Tax or not.<br />

For a non-taxable estate, the Executor will prepare an<br />

HMRC form detailing the assets and liabilities of the<br />

estate. They will also swear an Oath which confirms they<br />

are the executor named in the Will. These documents<br />

are then sent to the Probate Registry and typically<br />

the Grant is returned within one to two weeks.<br />

For a more complex estate, tax papers must be filed<br />

with HMRC and Inheritance Tax paid in advance. The<br />

Executor then applies for Probate including the Oath,<br />

Will and HMRC receipt. This is a longer process and<br />

from submission of papers to HMRC to the issue of<br />

the Grant may take between two to three months.<br />

In either case, timescales will need to include the work<br />

required by an Executor to establish the full assets and liabilities<br />

involved – which in certain cases can take several months.<br />

In the case of an intestacy, the HMRC forms completed<br />

are exactly the same but the applicant will swear an<br />

Oath confirming their entitlement to the estate. In this<br />

case, the applicant is called an ‘Administrator’.”<br />

Can I apply for Probate myself?<br />

“Personal applications, without the assistance of a solicitor, can<br />

be made to the Court directly by an Executor or Administrator.<br />

In very straightforward cases this can be a good option.<br />

However, it is always advisable to consult a solicitor in the first<br />

instance to establish any possible issues. In more complex cases,<br />

it is always advisable to instruct a solicitor to assist, particularly<br />

as an Executor or A dministrator will have strict obligations to<br />

fulfil, both to the beneficiaries of the estate and also to HMRC.”<br />

Beauty<br />

Unsung<br />

Heroes<br />

Josephine Fairley names some lesser-known products<br />

that know how to pack a punch<br />

Buying any beauty product without a personal<br />

recommendation, a magazine review or a tip-off<br />

from the growing number of beauty websites and<br />

blogs is always a minefield. How do you spot the potential<br />

winners, from the thousands – and thousands and thousands<br />

– of products out there? Particularly since beauty editors<br />

(guilty as charged) often focus on skincare, make-up and<br />

haircare that is sexily packaged, or just new, new, new.<br />

But let’s hear it for the unsung heroes: the footsoldier<br />

products that just keep quietly doing their job for (beauty)<br />

queen and country. Quite often, they’re under-recognised<br />

because their packaging doesn’t make the heart soar – or<br />

they’re so cheap you reckon they couldn’t possibly work, and<br />

walk straight past them on those crowded shelves, without a<br />

second glance. All of these, so far as I’m concerned, deliver on<br />

their promises – and are often ridiculously cheap, with it.<br />

M&S Formula Absolute Sleep Cream, £22 for 50ml. ‘Sleep’<br />

creams are all the rage – and often really pricy with it. This<br />

isn’t as inexpensive as some of M&S’s skincare, but a price like<br />

this isn’t going to induce sleepless nights, that’s for sure. It’s<br />

plumping, smoothing and ever-so-slightly radiant-making.<br />

Very slightly scented (which isn’t always<br />

the case with high street skincare offerings;<br />

I often find them to be over-perfumed).<br />

Above all, this is just very, very ‘comfy’<br />

on skin – a sort of hot-water-bottlecashmere-socks<br />

of a product, and one<br />

that I don’t think you’d regret adding<br />

in to your regime at any price.<br />

3INA Lipsticks, £4.95. I’ve always<br />

splurged on expensive lipstick –<br />

the luxury of the click, the glide,<br />

the colour! – but I’m a convert to<br />

these, which pack a pigmented<br />

punch, are comfy on the lips (and<br />

the pocket with it). In an amazing<br />

24 shades. (Check their website,<br />

uk.3ina.com, for stockists.)<br />

Weleda Skin Food, £10.95 for<br />

75ml. If I had to take just one desert<br />

island beauty cream, this would<br />

probably be it. A longstanding<br />

part of the biodynamic beauty<br />

brand Weleda’s line-up – Skin Food has been nourishing<br />

complexions since 1926 – it’s a great facial moisturiser,<br />

body cream, hand cream, cuticle nourisher, elbow-softener.<br />

(We’ve also seen it used backstage at London Fashion<br />

Week, to perk up tired complexions and generally soothe<br />

faces that have been over-cleansed.) It features wild pansy,<br />

calendula, chamomile and rosemary – though the fragrance<br />

is ultra-subtle – and chaps love it for razor-burn, too.<br />

Sainsbury’s Boutique Nail Polish, £4. Toss one or<br />

two of these in your trolley with the frozen peas, and I<br />

promise you won’t be disappointed. I tried these polishes<br />

with less-than-zero expectations, and was incredibly<br />

impressed by the staying power, ease of application and<br />

finish. This spring saw a fabulous burnished, Venetian<br />

gold in the collection (I’m a sucker for gold nails) and<br />

10 days later it was going strong. The same can’t always<br />

be said of designer polishes at four times the price.<br />

Simple Kind to Skin Micellar Water, £4.94 for 200ml. The<br />

whole Simple range is brilliant for sensitive skins; when friends<br />

are having flare-ups I point them in Simple’s direction. Many<br />

(but not all) micellar waters are truly miraculous for removing<br />

every last trace of make-up – including hard-to-budge eye<br />

make-up – but the price of this gentle but effective option<br />

makes this an excellent choice for a<br />

test-drive, if you still need convincing.<br />

Cath Kidston Hand Creams, £6<br />

for a trio of 30ml sizes. Different<br />

retailers stock different designs of these<br />

brilliantly hand-softening creams, but<br />

the formulas all sink in fast to leave<br />

hands velvety and rich, without being<br />

sticky or heavy. (A little bit of <strong>inside</strong><br />

track info, here: Cath Kidston is just<br />

one of the ranges made by Heathcote<br />

& Ivory; they’ve also collaborated<br />

with Kaffe Fassett, Morris & Co.<br />

and offer their own Vintage & Co.<br />

bath and bodycare – and it’s all topnotch.)<br />

With packaging this pretty<br />

you’re unlikely not to have noticed it,<br />

where it’s on sale – but you may have<br />

written it off thinking: ‘At that price, it<br />

can’t be any good.’ Trust me: it is. <br />

Beauty<br />

Barry M Get Shapey Brow & Eyeshadow Palette,<br />

£6.49. This tin of shadows and shapers isn’t going to win<br />

any luxury packaging prizes – but for a kit that delivers<br />

everything you need for neutral eye-shading, it is hard<br />

to beat. There are four excellent neutral shadows – three<br />

nudes and one with a touch of shimmer (because flat,<br />

entirely matte eyes simply aren’t flattering, especially as<br />

we age). First, use the brow powders and clear wax to<br />

define and shape your arches – because that way, you can<br />

determine how much emphasis eye sockets and lids need.<br />

Waitrose Pure Cleansing & Powder, £3 for 25g.<br />

‘Cleansing powders’ have been inspired by Korean beauty<br />

rituals and are brilliant for brightening skin, buffing away<br />

dead skin cells and very lightly foaming the complexion<br />

clean; I prefer them for morning cleansing rather than<br />

at night, but they’re a key part of my skincare regime<br />

now. This option offers a level of performance that belies<br />

its affordability. (The Waitrose Pure ranges are worth<br />

checking out generally. NB: I happen to be their Beauty<br />

Editor – but all that means is that I’m lucky enough to<br />

be first in the queue to road-test their new products.)<br />

Made For Life by Spiezia Organics Skin Solve Balm, from £6<br />

for 10ml (a brilliant trial or travel size). This can be categorized<br />

as a beauty product – it can double as a cleanser and<br />

moisturiser at a pinch – but I think every beauty cabinet needs<br />

this for S.O.S.-es including redness, itching, soreness, rashes.<br />

These sometimes arise as a reaction to a new product you’ve<br />

introduced into your regime, or may have another cause – but<br />

I wouldn’t be without this little blue glass pot of skin-calmer.<br />

Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder, £3.99. This is superfine,<br />

super-soft and brilliant for setting make-up without<br />

making it look flat and dusty. I like the ‘Transparent’ version<br />

but it does come in five skintone-matched shades. (Just be<br />

sure to apply with your fluffiest powder brush, is my advice.)<br />

Unstung Hero, £20 for 250ml (at victoriahealth.com)<br />

How could I resist wrapping up this run-down of unsung<br />

heroes with a product whose pun of a name always puts a<br />

smile on my face? In all seriousness, though, this brilliantly<br />

does double-duty – as a citrus-and-tea-scented, summerperfect<br />

Cologne that also very effectively keeps those<br />

darned mosquitos at bay. Spritz with abandon, I say!<br />

Are you considering<br />

a breast reduction?<br />

Miss Anita Hazari, Consultant Plastic Surgeon discusses the procedure.<br />

WHY YOU MIGHT NEED IT<br />

Breast reduction is never an<br />

essential operation. Weight loss<br />

may reduce breast size and,<br />

having lowered your BMI, you<br />

may find you do not need surgery.<br />

Correctly fitting underwear and<br />

clothing can improve comfort and<br />

appearance.<br />

The aim of the surgery is to<br />

give you smaller, better-shaped<br />

breasts that are in proportion to<br />

the rest of your body and relieve<br />

the severity of symptoms from<br />

large breasts such as backache<br />

and neck ache. The procedure<br />

removes fat, glandular tissue<br />

and skin from the breasts<br />

making them smaller, lighter<br />

and firmer.<br />

THE BENEFITS OF<br />

SURGERY<br />

Whatever your reason for<br />

considering this procedure, it<br />

can help you:<br />

• have greater self-esteem and<br />

confidence<br />

• feel that your breasts are more<br />

in proportion with the rest of<br />

your body<br />

• wear the clothes you want<br />

• live a more active lifestyle<br />

It is important to discuss:<br />

• your expectations<br />

• the benefits of the surgery to you<br />

• any risks, complications or<br />

limitations<br />

• family history of breast cancer<br />

• the need for a mammogram if<br />

you are 35 years or over<br />

THE PROCEDURE<br />

After pre-operative photographs,<br />

your surgeon will mark the new<br />

position for nipple in a position<br />

higher than the old, reducing<br />

the size of the nipple as well as<br />

marking the area of skin and<br />

breast tissue to be removed.<br />

The procedure usually takes<br />

about two to three hours.<br />

Techniques for breast<br />

reduction vary, but the most<br />

common procedure involves<br />

an anchor shaped incision<br />

that circles the areola, extends<br />

downwards and follows the<br />

natural curve of the crease<br />

beneath the breast.<br />

Glandular tissue, fat and<br />

skin is removed and the nipple<br />

with areola is moved into its<br />

new position. The skin will be<br />

brought down from both sides<br />

of the breast and around the<br />

areola, shaping the new curve<br />

of the breast. The nipples<br />

remain attached to the breast<br />

and its blood vessels (known as<br />

a ‘pedicle’). There are several<br />

variations of the direction of the<br />

pedicle. I often use the ‘superomedial’<br />

or ‘superior’ pedicle.<br />

However, in some cases, the<br />

nipples and areola may have<br />

to be removed completely and<br />

grafted into a higher position,<br />

especially if the breasts are<br />

very pendulous with the nipples<br />

extremely low.<br />

Sutures are dissolving under<br />

the skin and do not require<br />

removal.<br />

YOUR AFTERCARE<br />

The hospital stay is normally<br />

1-2 days. It will be necessary to<br />

organise two to three weeks off<br />

from work. If your job involves<br />

heavy lifting, longer time may<br />

be needed.<br />

POST-OPERATIVE BRA<br />

You will need to wear a good,<br />

supportive, non-wired support<br />

bra, as advised by your<br />

surgeon, for 6-8 weeks. This is<br />

to help support the underlying<br />

tissue and suture lines while<br />

healing. After surgery there will<br />

be swelling and your breasts will<br />

seem high and firm which may<br />

seem unnatural to you.<br />

It is essential to wear a good<br />

quality sports bra and if possible<br />

a lycra crop top too, to prevent<br />

the breasts from moving up/<br />

down and to maintain the<br />

results from surgery.<br />

If you are considering<br />

having a Breast Reduction<br />

and would like to discuss<br />

your options, Miss Anita<br />

Hazari offers free 15<br />

minute consultations.<br />

Health & Beauty<br />

Jump into <strong>June</strong><br />

<strong>Wealden</strong> <strong>Times</strong> talks to dietician and health coach, Katie Peck<br />

Do you have a beauty<br />

routine? The foundation of<br />

my beauty routine is quality<br />

sleep and drinking plenty of<br />

water. I’m an early riser and<br />

also a rower (getting up early at<br />

the weekends between 5-6am),<br />

so, in order to get the amount<br />

of sleep I need, I go to bed at<br />

9pm for at least three nights<br />

a week. Drinking plenty of<br />

water is essential for my skin.<br />

I hydrate as soon as I wake<br />

and drink 2-3 litres of water<br />

every day. I always drink water<br />

before I eat because caring for<br />

your digestion is important<br />

for good skin health.<br />

5-a-day<br />

Apparently, the 5-a-day<br />

health rule doesn’t just apply<br />

to fruit and veg. Research<br />

done by the psychology<br />

department at the University<br />

of California, showed that<br />

participants who performed<br />

5 acts of kindness a day, once<br />

a week, for 6 weeks became<br />

significantly happier. This in<br />

Do you have a<br />

particular product<br />

you couldn’t do<br />

without? There are<br />

many products that<br />

I can’t live without,<br />

but if I had to pick<br />

one, it would be<br />

50 + waterproof<br />

sunscreen for my<br />

face, neck and<br />

chest. I believe<br />

sun exposure in<br />

small amounts at<br />

non-peak times is<br />

healthy, it energises<br />

us and we make<br />

vitamin D in our<br />

skin, but the skin<br />

on your face, neck<br />

and chest is sensitive<br />

and vulnerable to damage, so<br />

it’s important to invest in a<br />

very good product. I use Obagi<br />

Medical Sun Shield Broad<br />

Spectrum SPF 50 - Matte.<br />

What’s your ultimate<br />

pampering treat? My ultimate<br />

pampering treat is a two<br />

hour, full body aromatherapy<br />

massage using oils tailored to<br />

how I’m feeling at the time.<br />

The oils are organic and have<br />

health benefits when they’re<br />

absorbed into the skin. The<br />

treatment’s deeply relaxing<br />

and I have one every month.<br />

We live busy lives with minds<br />

which are constantly working,<br />

turn had a positive effect on<br />

their health and wellbeing<br />

and other studies support<br />

this. For example, Allan<br />

Luks conducted research<br />

into the health, happiness<br />

and volunteering habits of<br />

3,296 people for his book<br />

‘The Healing Power of<br />

Doing Good’. When asked<br />

how they felt after helping<br />

people, 95% of participants<br />

so it’s vital to make sure we<br />

get enough rest to balance our<br />

hormones, help our skin and<br />

work to maintain flexibility<br />

in all the joints in our body.<br />

Who’s your style icon? My<br />

style icon is Marilyn Monroe<br />

because of her feminine style<br />

and softness. Her ability<br />

to present herself in a way<br />

that expressed who she was,<br />

was very natural and I love<br />

that. This is my favourite<br />

quote of hers: “Imperfection<br />

is beauty, madness is<br />

genius and it’s better to<br />

be absolutely ridiculous<br />

than absolutely boring.”<br />

Katie Peck is a New<br />

Health<br />

Plant Therapy<br />

Alison Marsden highlights the undeniable health<br />

benefits of getting out in a garden<br />

Credit: FreeImages.com/AinaM<br />

It’s official. Gardening is good for you.<br />

How do I know? Well apart from a<br />

lifetime’s gardening (and you could<br />

say that gardeners are biased) there is<br />

significant evidence from organised research<br />

that gardening is one of the best, and<br />

most accessible, ‘green care’ therapies for<br />

supporting and improving mental health.<br />

The breakthrough in this research is<br />

because it shows that green therapies<br />

benefit everyone, not just people who<br />

like gardening and find it a good way to<br />

unwind. A 2016 report commissioned by<br />

Natural England concluded that ‘green<br />

care’ offers significant benefits to patients.<br />

These include a reduction in depression,<br />

anxiety and stress symptoms plus increased<br />

self-esteem and confidence, social contact<br />

and inclusion, as well as a sense of<br />

belonging and personal achievement.<br />

The joy of using gardening to deliver<br />

these benefits is that it is so flexible, from<br />

the individual who enjoys gentle exercise,<br />

fresh air and sociable gardening conversation<br />

on their allotment to structured Social<br />

and Therapeutic Horticulture projects<br />

where qualified therapists support those<br />

with severe, long term mental health<br />

conditions. And there’s an increasing range<br />

of organisation and projects in between.<br />

Through Kent Adult Education I’ve worked<br />

with several including West Kent Mind<br />

at their Sevenoaks centre where a longstanding<br />

gardening group tends a vegetable<br />

Further information<br />

Alison tutors for Kent Adult<br />

Education who offer leisure and<br />

accredited courses for adults across<br />

West Kent Mind is affiliated to the<br />

national mental health charity Mind<br />

and delivers local mental health<br />

support to anyone in need of help.<br />

westkentmind.org.uk<br />

The UK charity Thrive uses<br />

gardening to bring positive changes<br />

in the lives of people living with<br />

and wildlife garden. This also allows<br />

participants to sit quietly for that crucial<br />

ten minutes becoming absorbed in a<br />

natural, green environment, reducing stress<br />

and restoring the ability to concentrate<br />

– another finding from the research.<br />

You don’t even need a garden at<br />

home; allotment groups, community<br />

gardening projects, local park and<br />

garden volunteers all offer a way to<br />

start, or keep on, gardening. Engaging<br />

in social activities, learning from others<br />

and feeling that you’re contributing<br />

to the community are important in<br />

maintaining good mental health, especially<br />

for people who may otherwise become<br />

isolated and lose confidence, often the<br />

trigger for anxiety or depression.<br />

And the end result of all that therapeutic<br />

gardening? A beautiful outside space, flowers<br />

for a vase and some of your five-a-day fruit<br />

and veg. However you look at it, gardens<br />

and gardening could be the simplest way<br />

Health<br />

Getting back<br />

into shape<br />

post baby<br />

Personal trainer Sarah-Jane Holt gives practical<br />

advice on how to regain control of your body<br />

Credit: FreeImages.com/Melbia1<br />

Getting back into training post-baby is an important<br />

step towards feeling like yourself again and can have a<br />

significant impact on stress levels, mood and wellbeing.<br />

However, when you barely have time to eat, let alone think<br />

about exercise, this can feel like a daunting challenge.<br />

A good place to start is with your core. After pregnancy and<br />

birth, core strength is weakened and in order to help protect<br />

against back pain, improve bladder control and help you back<br />

to pre-baby fitness, it’s important to work on rebuilding it.<br />

However, don’t rush things: it’s recommended that no core<br />

exercises are done for six weeks post birth, longer if you’ve had<br />

a c section, to allow the abdominals to knit back together. If<br />

you don’t wait for this to happen, you can develop a distended<br />

abdomen and a pot belly, not the look most of us are going<br />

for! So, check with the doctor or midwife first and once your<br />

abs have come back together, start with these exercises:<br />

Inner Core<br />

It is best to build up from the <strong>inside</strong> out. Working on<br />

developing inner core strength is vital for optimal core<br />

function, back health and having a flat tummy.<br />

Start with some basic diaphragmatic breathing:<br />

• Lie on your back with your knees bent and feet flat on the floor.<br />

• Put your hands on your tummy and focus on breathing into<br />

your hands. You are trying to stop the breath going into your<br />

chest and instead trying to fill up your tummy with air.<br />

• As you breathe out think about pulling your tummy button<br />

down towards your spine and push you back into the floor.<br />

• Hold for a second at the bottom and then<br />

release and take another deep breath.<br />

• This will start to engage your inner core muscles and<br />

begin to develop good functional core strength before<br />

progressing to this exercise with leg lowers, or ‘dead bugs’.<br />

• Lie on your back with both arms reaching towards<br />

the ceiling and your knees bent at right angles<br />

so that your shins are parallel to the floor. Take a<br />

deep breath, as before, into your tummy.<br />

• As you breathe out start to lower one leg to the floor,<br />

keeping the arm on that side reaching towards the<br />

ceiling, whilst bringing the opposite arm back towards<br />

the floor behind your head, keeping it straight.<br />

• The aim is to push down into your lower back<br />

and keep your back in contact with the floor<br />

at all times whilst extending your leg.<br />

• Keep your knee bent on this extending leg to begin<br />

with, and once you are successfully engaging your core<br />

and keeping your back flat, start to straighten it.<br />

• Bring your leg back up, take another deep breath and repeat.<br />

This exercise is surprisingly hard so take your<br />

time and progress through it slowly.<br />

Pelvic Floor<br />

As well as your inner core, you’ll need to<br />

strengthen your pelvic floor.<br />

Here are two simple exercises which will help:<br />

• The first is to imagine you’re stopping yourself peeing by<br />

pulling up your pelvic floor muscles and holding for a second.<br />

This is a great exercise and one you can do anywhere, in the car,<br />

watching TV or at work. Aim to do it 15 times, twice a day.<br />

• The second strengthening exercise is Swiss ball tucks.<br />

Sit on a Swiss ball, feet flat on the floor. Tuck your bum<br />

underneath you so you are bringing your pubic bone up<br />

towards your tummy button. This tuck movement will<br />

engage the pelvic floor. Hold for a moment then release.<br />

You can progress this by lifting one foot off the ground<br />

once you have your tuck, trying to keep your hips balanced<br />

throughout. 15 of these twice a day would be a great start.<br />

Doing simple short easy exercises like these can make a big<br />

difference to your strength and core function. Although<br />

they may not feel the toughest exercises, they are laying<br />

solid foundations so you can successfully more onto<br />

more intense training when you are ready, helping you to<br />

regain your pre-baby body in a safe and effective way.<br />

Had enough with<br />

being overweight?<br />

Special offers<br />

for <strong>June</strong><br />

Hands up all those<br />

who feel they’re in<br />

a constant battle to<br />

achieve a healthy<br />

and sustainable body<br />

weight. How many<br />

diets have you tried<br />

and failed, feeling<br />

totally frustrated and<br />

not knowing what to<br />

do next?<br />

Having had a weight problem for 35<br />

years, Rachel was desperate to find a<br />

way of being able to lose weight once<br />

and for all. ‘I had just about resigned<br />

myself to the fact that I would be<br />

overweight for the rest of my life, Rachel Ricketts, Weight Loss Consultant<br />

when I came across the principles of<br />

the Metabolic Weight Loss Programme. I followed these and to my<br />

amazement, I lost 3 stone in just over 3 months and then went on<br />

to successfully maintain my weight. The relief was enormous to<br />

have found something that finally worked for me.’<br />

Recent success<br />

“I was desperate to lose<br />

weight and you really were<br />

my last resort. Thanks<br />

to you and your team’s<br />

wonderful support I lost<br />

3 stone. I no longer get<br />

out of breath and can<br />

now run around after my<br />

grandchildren! My blood<br />

pressure and cholesterol are<br />

finally in a normal range.<br />

My doctor is delighted with<br />

my health improvement and<br />

so am I! I would recommend<br />

the Metabolic Weight<br />

Programme to anyone.”<br />

Christine from Hampshire<br />

‘This isn’t an open-ended slimming club,’ says Rachel. ‘We set your<br />

target weight at the beginning and then get on with the business<br />

of helping you lose the weight, addressing any difficulties along the<br />

way, then we concentrate on keeping it off – for good!’<br />

Rachel became passionate about wanting to help as many people<br />

as possible with their weight problems, which led her to become a<br />

qualified weight loss consultant. In the last 13 years, she has helped<br />

over 4,000 clients from all walks of life to help bring their dieting<br />

days to an end once and for all. ‘My clients’ ages range from from 8<br />

to 90 years old, so there is hope for everyone!’<br />

One of the popular aspects of the Metabolic Weight Loss<br />

Programme is there’s nothing faddish about it. There are no<br />

meal replacements, diet shakes or diet pills. All the foods on<br />

the programme are easily obtainable. Clients frequently say<br />

just how easy it is to follow, they don’t feel hungry and are not<br />

having to constantly battle with cravings. The four stages of the<br />

programme are tailored as necessary to provide the maximum<br />

results for each client.<br />

Rachel and her team give weekly one-to-one consultations, guiding<br />

you through the programme with personalised support, lots of<br />

empathy and total conviction in the success of the programme.<br />

Email support is available in between consultations.<br />

For those who are not able to visit, a very successful remote support<br />

service is provided throughout the UK - distance is no object!<br />

Clients often comment on how impressed their doctors are with<br />

their results. ‘My doctor is very happy– I’ve been able to come off<br />

blood pressure and cholesterol medication,’ says one. Another<br />

doctor said, ‘All my lady patients on thyroid medication are<br />

struggling to lose weight, but you’ve lost 2 ½ stone despite being<br />

on thyroxin – well done!’<br />

With an average weight loss of 7-14lb a month for clients and<br />

hundreds of hand written testimonials, Rachel’s results speak for<br />

themselves. ‘I see real results daily, time after time I see people’s<br />

lives change in front of me.’<br />

Seasonal<br />

fruitfulness<br />

Push all the other fruits out of the bowl – the<br />

season of luscious, locally grown summer berries is<br />

here. Bursting with flavour and immune-boosting<br />

micronutrients, homegrown berries are delicious eaten<br />

straight from the bush, or used as versatile and easy<br />

additions to recipes. Our soft fruit season is short, but<br />

very sweet. Let’s make the most of them.<br />

Recipes: Jo Arnell Photographs: David Merewether<br />

Strawberry and lavender tart<br />

This is a very easy tart to put together - and to make it even easier<br />

you could use ready made sweet pastry. Strawberries, lavender and<br />

lemon are fresh and fragrant tart toppings and make a perfect early<br />

summer combo.<br />

Serves 6-8 Prep time: 1 hour (inc. cooling) Cooking time: 20 mins<br />

For the shortbread pastry case:<br />

• 200g plain flour<br />

• 150g cold butter, cut<br />

into small cubes<br />

• 1 egg yolk<br />

• 75g ground almonds<br />

• 50g caster sugar<br />

For the filling:<br />

• 200ml double cream<br />

• 220ml mascarpone<br />

• zest and juice of<br />

half a lemon<br />

• 2-3 tablespoons of<br />

lavender sugar (more or<br />

less, depending on taste)<br />

• 250g strawberries<br />

(whole small ones,<br />

or sliced big ones)<br />

1. To make the pastry combine the flour and butter together<br />

(by hand or with a food processor) until they resemble<br />

crumble topping. Mix in the egg, sugar and almonds<br />

and push together to make a ball (you may need a little<br />

extra water too). Place in the fridge for 30mins, then roll<br />

(or press) into a flan dish (easier said than done, as it is<br />

crumbly and might not hold together). Bake in the oven<br />

at 180˚C (gas 4) for 20 minutes. Cool thoroughly.<br />

2. Beat the cream into the mascarpone (until it forms soft<br />

peaks), then mix in lemon juice and 1-2 tablespoons of<br />

lavender sugar (taste for sweetness). Add the cream mixture<br />

to the pastry case just prior to serving. Top with strawberries,<br />

a sprinkling of lemon zest and more lavender sugar. <br />

Gooseberry fool<br />

The trickiest thing about this recipe might be finding the<br />

gooseberries, as they can sometimes be hard to track down in the<br />

shops. Cultivate a good local supplier, or better still, grow your own.<br />

Serves 4 Prep time: 1 hour (inc. cooling) Cooking time: Around 10 mins<br />

• 200g fresh (or frozen)<br />

gooseberries<br />

• 2 tablespoons elderflower<br />

cordial<br />

• 50g caster sugar (to taste)<br />

• 300ml double cream<br />

• 300ml Greek yoghurt<br />

• handful of toasted flaked<br />

almonds, to garnish<br />

1. Simmer gooseberries with sugar and elderflower<br />

cordial until they burst their skins and mash down –<br />

puree the mixture if a smooth consistency is preferred<br />

(I like to see the odd gooseberry). Test for sweetness,<br />

adding more sugar if required, then leave to cool.<br />

2. Beat the cream until soft peak stage (be careful<br />

not to over-beat) and then mix in the yoghurt.<br />

3. Add the gooseberry mix and combine carefully.<br />

4. Pile into serving dishes and chill until required,<br />

then serve, sprinkled with almonds.<br />

Raspberry and white chocolate cookies<br />

These cookies just melt in the mouth, but for<br />

extra crunch and luxuriance add some chopped<br />

nuts – hazelnuts or macadamia work best.<br />

Makes approx 16 cookies<br />

Prep time: 15 mins Cooking time: 10-15 mins<br />

• 225g softened butter<br />

• 140g caster sugar<br />

• 260g flour<br />

• 1 egg<br />

• 100g white<br />

chocolate, broken<br />

into small chunks<br />

• 50g raspberries<br />

1. Beat the butter and sugar together until pale and<br />

creamy, add the egg and a little of the flour and beat<br />

them into the mixture. Fold in the rest of the flour.<br />

2. Then fold in the white chocolate and raspberries. Add<br />

the raspberries in carefully. If you mix them in too<br />

enthusiastically, the cookies will turn the mixture a sludgy<br />

pink – they’ll be just as scrumptious, but not as photogenic.<br />

3. Form, or spoon, into little rounds and place on greased, or<br />

parchment lined baking trays and bake in a pre-heated oven<br />

(at gas mark 4 or 180˚C) for 10-15 minutes (remove when<br />

golden). Leave to cool and crisp up before transferring/serving.<br />

Fabio Vinciguerra from The Tickled Trout<br />

in West Farleigh, part of Hush Heath Estate,<br />

teams freshly picked asparagus with tender<br />

sea trout in a perfect dinner party dish<br />

Seared Sea Trout and Asparagus<br />

Serves 1<br />

• 12 asparagus spears<br />

• knob of butter<br />

• 3 gelatine leaves<br />

• 5 radishes<br />

• 90g wild garlic leaves<br />

• mayonnaise to taste<br />

• 160g portion of sea trout<br />

• salt and pepper to taste<br />

• ½ lemon<br />

• drizzle of olive oil<br />

1. Trim and peel the asparagus. To make an asparagus jelly, chop<br />

6 asparagus spears and put them into a pan of salted boiling<br />

water with a knob of butter. Then boil for 2-3 minutes.<br />

2. Meanwhile, soak the gelatine leaves in cold water until<br />

they are soft. Blend the boiled asparagus with a bit of its<br />

cooking liquid, then add the gelatine and blend again<br />

until smooth. Transfer into a tray and refrigerate to set.<br />

3. Slice the radishes into rounds under ½cm thick, then<br />

stack them and slice into strips, before setting aside.<br />

4. For a wild garlic mayonnaise, blanch the wild garlic leaves in<br />

another pan of salted boiling water for 30 seconds. Transfer<br />

them to a bowl of iced water to maintain the colour. Then<br />

roughly chop the leaves and blend, then add to mayonnaise.<br />

5. Season the sea trout with salt and pepper and place it<br />

skin side down in a frying pan over a medium-high heat.<br />

Apply a gentle pressure to ensure the fish remains flat in<br />

the pan. After 4-5 minutes check if the fish skin is starting<br />

to crisp. Once it is, turn the trout and reduce the heat<br />

for another 4-5 minutes until it is cooked through.<br />

6. While the fish is cooking, trim the woody base<br />

from the remaining uncooked asparagus. Drizzle<br />

the spears with olive oil and season with salt and<br />

pepper. Grill under a high heat for 3-4 minutes.<br />

7. Remove trout from the heat and squeeze<br />

over the juice of ½ a lemon.<br />

8. To serve, start by dotting the wild garlic mayonnaise on the<br />

right side of the plate. Add a few cubes of asparagus jelly to<br />

the left side of the plate. Place the grilled asparagus spears<br />

in the middle of the plate and top this with the cooked sea<br />

trout. Garnish with the radish and serve immediately.<br />

Garden<br />

War on Weeds<br />

Jo Arnell tackles the trickiest garden invaders<br />

Early summer is the time of maximum growth. The soil<br />

is warm and the danger of frost has passed. Everything<br />

in the garden should be rosy, except that sometimes<br />

it isn’t. One of the main issues that can sap our gardening<br />

enthusiasm are weeds. I am slightly in awe of weeds. They<br />

are such opportunists – tough and persistent, they will grow<br />

almost anywhere and in virtually any soil (if only some of<br />

our cultivated plants were as adaptable). They are also fast<br />

to germinate – always before any cultivated crops - and they<br />

grow so quickly that they easily out-compete other plants<br />

and choke them out, often quite literally. They can be hosts<br />

for diseases and larval stages of pests. It’s also been found that<br />

some actually send out substances that inhibit the growth of<br />

other plants. It is quite obvious that weeds spend their days<br />

plotting to take over the world and mid <strong>June</strong> is when they<br />

get close to achieving their aim. Understanding a little about<br />

how they manage to be so invasive might prevent you from<br />

getting too demoralised and help you launch a counter-attack.<br />

Broadly speaking weeds are either annuals, perennials or,<br />

occasionally, monstrous invaders like the ubiquitous Japanese<br />

knotweed. Annual weeds grow really fast and set seed early in<br />

the season. Some are called ephemerals, a romantic sounding<br />

word, meaning that they will come and go all through<br />

the year, not just in spring, so that many generations may<br />

germinate within a few months. They are successful because<br />

of the speed at which this happens and by the sheer number<br />

of seeds they disperse each time – thousands from each plant.<br />

The seed can also survive in the ground for years and years.<br />

Annuals seem to be easier to get rid of than perennials, but<br />

every time you disturb the soil you will bring more seeds to<br />

the surface, where they will immediately germinate. Examples<br />

– chickweed, shepherd’s purse, groundsel, hairy bittercress.<br />

Controlling annual weeds<br />

Removal by hand – annuals tend to have shallow roots, so<br />

hand weeding (especially if you can get to them before they<br />

set seed) will be effective. You can dig them up, or better<br />

still, hoe them off. Hoeing will cause less soil disturbance<br />

and therefore less existing weed seeds are brought up to<br />

the surface. Keep the blade of the hoe nice and sharp<br />

so that you can just slice along the top of the soil.<br />

‘No dig’ system – gardening without cultivating the soil<br />

will reduce the amount of disruption in the ground and<br />

will also allow the soil ecosystem to function undisturbed.<br />

A thick mulch applied in early spring, while the soil is still<br />

moist, will help to prevent weed seeds from germinating<br />

Garden<br />

Repeated application of systemic<br />

weedkiller may be needed for<br />

pernicious weeds like nettles<br />

Green alkanet<br />

Some weeds have such deep<br />

roots that they are almost<br />

impossible to dig out. Examples<br />

include bindweed, ground<br />

elder, horsetail, dandelion<br />

and will also improve the soil’s structure – the worms<br />

and microorganisms will cultivate the soil for you.<br />

Burning – there are special gardening blow torches<br />

available that will burn off the top growth, but this<br />

can be a haphazard and laborious task if the weeds<br />

are among other plants, or there are lots of them.<br />

Contact weedkiller – these types of weedkiller act like<br />

a chemical hoe and will kill off the top growth, so are<br />

only effective for annual weeds. Be careful and only use<br />

in very still conditions, so that the spray doesn’t drift<br />

onto your precious plants. Weedkillers can be harmful<br />

to wildlife, especially residual weed treatments that<br />

persist in the soil for up to six months or more.<br />

Perennial weeds set seed and also replicate asexually,<br />

which means that they can re-grow from the tiniest piece<br />

of root that may have been left in the soil. Some, like<br />

couch grass and creeping buttercup send out runners near<br />

the soil’s surface, others have such deep roots that they are<br />

almost impossible to dig out. Examples include bindweed,<br />

ground elder, horsetail, dandelion, dock, couch.<br />

Controlling perennial weeds<br />

Perennial weeds do not seed around quite as quickly as the<br />

annuals, but they make up for this with toughness and tenacity<br />

and are not as easy to dig out as the annuals. The roots of<br />

horsetail, for instance, have been known to grow several<br />

metres down into the ground, so a combination of methods<br />

may be required for some of the more pernicious perennials.<br />

Removal by hand – it is not enough to just hoe off the<br />

top growth of perennial weeds, as they will just grow back.<br />

Digging out the roots of weeds like bindweed, couch grass and<br />

ground elder can seem like an impossible task, but persistence<br />

(sometimes over many years) does eventually pay off.<br />

Weed membrane (or a covering of light excluding black<br />

plastic) pegged down over the infested area will eventually<br />

starve out perennial weeds, but the barrier may have to be<br />

in place for several seasons. Using weed membrane (with a<br />

cosmetic cover of mulch) can be effective in low maintenance<br />

or shrub borders, where plants remain in permanent positions.<br />

Systemic weedkiller – contains glyphosate and is<br />

absorbed by plant leaves and taken down to the roots so<br />

that the whole plant is eventually destroyed. Repeated<br />

application may be needed for pernicious weeds like nettles<br />

and brambles. Use with care (there is some controversy<br />

on the use of glyphosate and the environment/human<br />

health at the moment). Gel applicators can be used to<br />

paint individual leaves where weeds are growing among<br />

cultivated plants and there are specialised herbicides<br />

available for eradicating broad-leaved weeds in lawns.<br />

Monstrous invaders<br />

Japanese knotweed is in a category all of its own, because it<br />

is becoming a huge problem. Introduced by the Victorians as<br />

an ornamental plant, it was found originally on Mount Fuji,<br />

where it is able to withstand the inhospitable environment<br />

of the volcanic slopes. This is partly why it is so invasive<br />

here, as even the worst of garden soil is very welcoming<br />

by comparison. It is almost impossible to eradicate – to<br />

the extent that it has caused problems to homeowners<br />

trying to sell their properties. It is not illegal to grow<br />

Japanese knotweed in a private garden, but it is an<br />

offence to allow it to be grown elsewhere. The problem<br />

is that the rhizomatous roots penetrate for metres under<br />

the soil and can easily spread under boundaries.<br />

Control of Japanese knotweed is very difficult. It is<br />

almost impossible to dig it out, as the roots can go up<br />

to three metres down into the soil. Using a translocated<br />

weedkiller (glyphosate), which would normally kill a<br />

perennial weed straightaway, will weaken the growth of<br />

the knotweed, so that in the year following treatment<br />

new growth will be small. Eventually – after a few years<br />

of spraying, it may be eradicated. The top growth should<br />

be dried out and then burnt, as it must not be included<br />

with household rubbish or put out in garden waste bins.<br />

There are specialist firms that will undertake removal<br />

of Japanese knotweed, but this may prove costly.<br />

There are a few other imported plants that have escaped<br />

from gardens and are now romping around the place –<br />

Rhododendron ponticum, Himalayan balsam and Giant<br />

Hogweed are gaining ground and a species of pondweed<br />

– New Zealand Pygmyweed, is clogging our ponds and<br />

waterways. These species need to be removed as they cause a<br />

threat to native habitats and can seriously affect ecosystems.<br />

If you do have Japanese knotweed or are suffering<br />

from an invasion of another pernicious perennial, then<br />

you have my sympathy. They turn the common garden<br />

weeds into a minor irritation. While you were reading<br />

this, however, out in your garden several of those ordinary<br />

weeds will have released their seeds or crept along a few<br />

more centimetres. Let’s go out – and get weeding.<br />

Pelargonium ‘Vectis Glitter’<br />

What’s in a Name?<br />

Sue Whigham uncovers the Latin reasoning behind plant monikers<br />

In the days before child booster seats and seat belts,<br />

I took my turn taking six little boys to school. We<br />

would wind away through the back streets of Streatham<br />

to get down to Dulwich. In the back I would have a<br />

motley selection of characters; a lot of entertaining chat<br />

and gentle bickering and maybe one or two catching<br />

up with homework or bizarrely attempting to do their<br />

overdue violin practice in a moving car. This became<br />

even more interesting, and I use that word advisedly,<br />

when we came to a T junction or went round a corner.<br />

And then there would be my son revising his Latin<br />

vocabulary homework. The other son, who went<br />

into horticulture, always remembers from those<br />

journeys the word ‘gladiatus’ meaning ‘swordlike’ and<br />

thinking about the gladiators fighting in the Roman<br />

Colosseum. Now, all these years later, he remembers it<br />

as a description of the leaf shape of gladioli and wishes<br />

that he’d taken more interest in his Latin lessons!<br />

Most gardeners have some knowledge of ‘botanical Latin’<br />

and how it helps when you are trying to choose a plant or<br />

find out more about them. It’s the same really when you<br />

are travelling. As we know, it helps to have some basic<br />

understanding of the local language. A plant’s name is a<br />

unique label and it can tell you where the plant originated,<br />

maybe who discovered it and what shape and colour its leaves<br />

and flowers might be. We know that Latin is the root of<br />

many languages and once you get to recognise the derivation<br />

of plant names it really is so useful. Botanical names though<br />

are constantly evolving and in some cases changing as<br />

scientists recognise more similarities and maybe differences<br />

in plants. For instance the genus name Cimicifuga has now<br />

completely disappeared and become Actaea. All confusing<br />

at first but you do gradually get used to it. It is also the case<br />

that we are also having to accept earlier names for familiar<br />

names as archives in countries like Russia are being studied.<br />

Why Latin? For centuries Latin was the language of<br />

science and learning in Europe and plants were described<br />

in a form of Latin which developed into a special botanical<br />

language which included references to sources like Ancient<br />

Greek and Arabic. It wasn’t until Carl Linnaeus, a Swedish<br />

professor of medicine at Uppsala University in Sweden<br />

took things in hand by developing the binomial system of<br />

naming all living organisms – a life’s work – that things<br />

became more orderly and recognisable. He set out his<br />

‘two name system’ in a seminal work, Species Plantarum<br />

in 1753 which was immediately widely accepted.<br />

The absolute bible at college was The Hillier Manual<br />

of Trees and Shrubs which much to our horror didn’t<br />

have pictures. Once we’d got over the initial shock<br />

and began to understand how plant names were<br />

Garden Perfection<br />

Iris ‘Magnétisme’<br />

made up we realised that all the essential knowledge<br />

concerning the plants in it was there. All plants are in a<br />

family e.g. Rosaceae which encompasses an enormous<br />

array of plants including roses and the flowering crab<br />

apples which include so many garden favourites.<br />

Once the family name is established, a plant is known<br />

by its Genus and its species e.g. Rosa rugosa. These are<br />

always in italics as a sort of etiquette and the Genus name<br />

always begins with an upper case letter. The species name<br />

usually is very useful in recognising a plant in that it does<br />

tell us perhaps a structural detail of the plant or maybe it’ll<br />

tell us the plant’s place of origin or its habitat or maybe<br />

its habit of growth. All essential knowledge for finding<br />

that perfect plant. For instance, Geranium sylvaticum<br />

prefers some shade as it originates in wooded areas whilst<br />

Geranium pratense is found in the wild in meadow land.<br />

I bought Euphorbia palustris from a nursery at the excellent<br />

Gardening for Disabled Trust Plant Fair recently and<br />

now realise that with palustris meaning ‘of marshland’ my<br />

original planting hole will have to be filled in and another<br />

site found. Tricky at the moment as the whole garden is so<br />

dry and even the pond area loses moisture in the summer<br />

as the water level drops so drastically. Unlike the leader<br />

of the Western World, I believe in global warming!<br />

If the plant has a cultivar name, in other words it is a<br />

form of the species that has been deliberately or maybe<br />

naturally hybridised in a garden or nursery, it has a third<br />

name. This is always recognisable in that it is written<br />

within single apostrophes and never in italics. Since the<br />

International Code of Nomenclature was established in<br />

1959 it hasn’t been permissible to use Latin names for a<br />

new cultivar, i.e. a perennial daisy, Bellis perennis which<br />

might have a new double form in white, could not be called<br />

Bellis perennis ‘Alba Plena’ simply meaning double white.<br />

There are thousands and thousands of cultivated forms<br />

of species plants and their breeders register them as having<br />

PBR – that is Plant Breeders Rights. Cultivar names from<br />

countries like Poland which breeds some wonderful <br />

Begonia ‘Sceptre’<br />

clematis are worth getting to know. I particularly like<br />

Clematis ‘Blekitny Aniol’ which is so much easier to imagine<br />

when you know that the name means ‘Blue Angel’.<br />

In the wild there are plants that evolve that are similar<br />

to their species but that are subtly different maybe due<br />

to the conditions they have adapted to for survival.<br />

So just to complicate matters, a subspecies is a variant<br />

on the species and would be recognised in the plant’s<br />

description by writing first the Genus, then the species<br />

and then subsp. and finally the subspecies name. An<br />

example might be one of Gertrude Jekyll’s favourite<br />

plants, the spectacular Mediterranean spurge and well<br />

known to gardeners, Euphorbia characias subsp. wulfenii<br />

Finally, very many plants have names which<br />

commemorate great gardeners or the intrepid plant<br />

hunters who brought plants in to cultivation and who<br />

had the most extraordinary experiences all over the<br />

far flung corners of the world whilst doing so.<br />

Sir Joseph Banks is often thought of as the father of plant<br />

hunting. He came from an affluent family in the eighteenth<br />

century and rather than take the Grand Tour to Italy as<br />

many young men of means did then he decided to take his<br />

tour ‘around the globe’. He joined an expedition on board<br />

HMS Endeavour to the South Seas under the captaincy of<br />

Captain James Cook. The Admiralty ostensibly sent the ship<br />

out to observe the transit of Venus in the South Seas. Can<br />

you imagine how exciting this must have been for the young<br />

Banks as he saw it as an opportunity to collect both flora<br />

and fauna during the journey. The extraordinary story of the<br />

HMS Endeavour’s epic journey is well worth reading but<br />

Banks’s legacy lives on in the establishment of Kew Gardens<br />

as a centre for botanical excellence and in the approximately<br />

eighty species of plant named after him and in the case of the<br />

glorious early Banksian rose, after his wife, Lady Dorothea.<br />

Summer Study<br />

Susan Elkin ponders the timing of examinations<br />

Education<br />

Flaming <strong>June</strong>. Time for Wimbledon, strawberries, outdoor<br />

theatre – and school exams. Most of us remember sitting<br />

tensely in the school hall struggling desperately to remember<br />

the formula for quadratic equations or the causes of the Seven<br />

Years War while the sun blazed merrily outside and you tried to<br />

ignore the gentle thud of tennis balls on racquets in the distance.<br />

Little has changed. This month thousands of young<br />

people are in the middle of their GCSEs, A levels and<br />

other exams. And, although question papers are generally<br />

more clearly expressed these days and there’s slightly less<br />

emphasis on rote learning, examination arrangements<br />

are not so very different from when I took my O and A<br />

levels, longer ago than I’m prepared to reveal here.<br />

So a radical shake-up is long overdue. And I’m not, for<br />

once referring to the curriculum. It’s the timing which is<br />

no longer fit for purpose. Why on earth do we insist on<br />

staging public exams in the summer? The weather might<br />

be uncomfortably sticky and anyone who suffers from hay<br />

fever or other allergies is likely to be at his or her worst.<br />

More seriously, the insistence on summer exams lies at the root<br />

of the unseemly, inefficient, manic, annual scramble for university<br />

places. Results are announced in August and “Uni” starts only a<br />

few weeks later. Decisions made in haste and repented at leisure<br />

are commonplace. Young people start courses they soon discover<br />

are wrong for them, for example, because in the end that’s all that<br />

was on offer. And if exam papers have to be remarked/upgraded<br />

– which seems to be the case far more often than in times past<br />

presumably because of poor quality markers – then the student may<br />

miss out on the university place all together, at least for that year.<br />

So why don’t we run school exams in cool, business-like January<br />

and February? That would allow plenty of time for papers to be<br />

marked properly with results announced in, say, May and four<br />

further months in which to sort out the allocation of places.<br />

Curricula and teaching timetables would need adjusting of course<br />

(perhaps the exam course could start during Year 9 for instance) but<br />

the advantages would more than justify it. And students could fit<br />

in a few months of work experience before setting off to college.<br />

Even more radically perhaps another solution would be<br />

for everyone to take a whole year out between school and<br />

higher education. Then, even if exams continued to be sat<br />

in the summer students could apply with their actual results<br />

– rather than inaccurate teacher predictions – and definite<br />

offers be made by the higher education institutions. A year<br />

out doesn’t have to be spent travelling, obviously. Personally,<br />

I’d advocate getting a job, finding out how the world works<br />

and saving some money towards the cost of college.<br />

Get Your Life in Order<br />

Three legal experts share important advice on planning for the future<br />

Preparing, Planning and<br />

Protecting your Estate<br />

James Beresford, Slater and Gordon<br />

What happens if I don’t have any plans in place?<br />

“If you die without leaving a valid will, you are treated<br />

as having died intestate. This means that your estate will<br />

be divided in accordance with the law. This may mean<br />

that people whom you do not wish to inherit from your<br />

estate may do so. It is not necessarily a certainty that your<br />

husband, wife or civil partner will inherit all of your estate.”<br />

Should my partner and I have a joint will?<br />

“There is no such thing as a ‘joint’ will. Each person<br />

will make their own individual will. What you can do<br />

is have wills that mirror each other in their terms. It<br />

very much depends upon your family dynamics as to<br />

whether your wills should do so however. It also depends<br />

on the family scenario and the assets involved.”<br />

What grounds could there be for my will to be contested?<br />

“Wills can be contested in certain circumstances only.<br />

There are limited categories of people who can claim against<br />

your estate if they feel that they have not been sufficiently<br />

provided for. Your will could also be challenged if you did<br />

not have the requisite capacity to create a will and also that<br />

you lacked knowledge and approval of the contents.<br />

Whilst there is nothing that you can do to prevent a claim<br />

being brought against your estate it will be harder for a<br />

claim to be brought, if you take appropriate specialist<br />

legal advice from a suitably qualified solicitor. He or she<br />

will be able to express your wishes in your own words and<br />

put plans in place to ensure that they are met.”<br />

Legal<br />

What are lifetime gifts and how do they work?<br />

Simon Leney, Cripps<br />

The only downside is that you<br />

make yourself poorer, although<br />

for inheritance tax saving<br />

that is the whole point!<br />

“It’s common knowledge that if you gift money, assets or valuables<br />

seven years before you die, you are free of inheritance tax. There is no<br />

limit to how much you can gift. If you give away more than £3,000<br />

in a tax year (the previous year’s unused allowance can also be used)<br />

and you don’t survive the gift by seven years, the surplus is added<br />

back to the value of your estate at death for the purpose of calculating<br />

inheritance tax. There is no penalty – the inheritance tax is no more<br />

than it would have been had you kept the value in your estate and<br />

actually it will be slightly less due to use of the annual allowance.<br />

Where you as the giver continue to benefit from the gift,<br />

it will be deemed to be a gift with reservation of benefit,<br />

meaning the seven year ‘clock’ does not start. If at a later stage<br />

part of the gift is returned to you or spent on your behalf, the<br />

part of the gift will be treated as a gift with reservation.<br />

Lifetime giving – accelerating inheritance by your heirs for<br />

example – has many benefits, not least the pleasure of seeing your<br />

gift being enjoyed. The only downside is that you make yourself<br />

poorer, although for inheritance tax saving that is the whole point!”<br />

Probate<br />

Richard Hearne,Whitehead Monckton<br />

What is it?<br />

“Probate is the legal process whereby the Will of a deceased<br />

person is submitted to Court to be ‘proved’ as a valid public<br />

document, that is the true ‘last Will and testament’ of the<br />

deceased. In the case of an intestacy (when the deceased<br />

died without leaving a Will), there is a similar process but<br />

in this case the applicant is the person or persons entitled<br />

to the estate under the rules of intestacy. In each case, the<br />

Court will issue either a Grant of Probate or (in the case<br />

of an intestacy) a Grant of Letters of Administration.”<br />

When is it needed?<br />

“Probate is not always needed and depends upon the assets held<br />

by the deceased. For example, property held as joint tenants<br />

will pass automatically to the surviving owner. In the case of<br />

cash assets, the need for Probate depends upon the amount<br />

held with the bank. Advice should be sought from a solicitor<br />

at the outset to establish whether or not Probate is required.”<br />

How do you apply for Probate?<br />

“The process of applying for Probate differs depending on<br />

whether the estate is subject to Inheritance Tax or not.<br />

For a non-taxable estate, the Executor will prepare an<br />

HMRC form detailing the assets and liabilities of the<br />

estate. They will also swear an Oath which confirms they<br />

are the executor named in the Will. These documents<br />

are then sent to the Probate Registry and typically<br />

the Grant is returned within one to two weeks.<br />

For a more complex estate, tax papers must be filed<br />

with HMRC and Inheritance Tax paid in advance. The<br />

Executor then applies for Probate including the Oath,<br />

Will and HMRC receipt. This is a longer process and<br />

from submission of papers to HMRC to the issue of<br />

the Grant may take between two to three months.<br />

In either case, timescales will need to include the work<br />

required by an Executor to establish the full assets and liabilities<br />

involved – which in certain cases can take several months.<br />

In the case of an intestacy, the HMRC forms completed<br />

are exactly the same but the applicant will swear an<br />

Oath confirming their entitlement to the estate. In this<br />

case, the applicant is called an ‘Administrator’.”<br />

Can I apply for Probate myself?<br />

“Personal applications, without the assistance of a solicitor, can<br />

be made to the Court directly by an Executor or Administrator.<br />

In very straightforward cases this can be a good option.<br />

However, it is always advisable to consult a solicitor in the first<br />

instance to establish any possible issues. In more complex cases,<br />

it is always advisable to instruct a solicitor to assist, particularly<br />

as an Executor or A dministrator will have strict obligations to<br />

fulfil, both to the beneficiaries of the estate and also to HMRC.”<br />

The pitfalls of<br />

D.I.Y will writing<br />

James Beresford,<br />

Head of Wills, Tax,<br />

Trust and Probate at<br />

Slater and Gordon<br />

There are a number of potentially disastrous pitfalls you can encounter when writing<br />

your own will. We examine some of the more common problems.<br />

Why should I make a will?<br />

• It allows you to choose who you<br />

wish to benefit from your estate<br />

and who you do not wish to benefit<br />

from your estate, on your death<br />

• It allows you to appoint guardians<br />

to care for minor children, in the<br />

event that both parents die whist<br />

the children are still minor<br />

• It can be used to protect your<br />

assets, for example, from a<br />

spendthrift or from divorcing<br />

family members<br />

• It can be used to protect your<br />

beneficiaries, for example,<br />

from being taken advantage<br />

of financially<br />

This guide will help you understand<br />

that having your will drafted<br />

professionally is a small price to<br />

pay, as it can save a substantial<br />

amount of money in the long run.<br />

Why should I get proper<br />

legal advice?<br />

Often, a home-made will is not<br />

worded in such a way that makes it<br />

legally enforceable. This may be<br />

because the terms of the will are<br />

ambiguous or because the will fails<br />

to effectively dispose of your assets<br />

in the correct manner. Can you<br />

afford to take the risk that your<br />

home-made will does what you<br />

think it does?<br />

• The Courts of Chancery entertain<br />

a steady stream of litigants vying<br />

to show that they were the<br />

intended beneficiary from a<br />

poorly drafted will<br />

• Legal documents still use old<br />

fashioned language, more often<br />

than not, and yet the implication<br />

of a single incorrect word can<br />

affect completely what your<br />

will does.<br />

• The interpretation of will clauses<br />

in professionally drafted wills<br />

have stood the test of time for<br />

centuries<br />

• The legal rules surrounding<br />

making a valid will are very<br />

exacting and are strictly enforced<br />

by the courts. One strike and<br />

its out.<br />

• Unqualified will drafters do not<br />

always understand the intricacies<br />

and nuances of will clauses. Legal<br />

clauses can sometimes be cut and<br />

pasted to a perceived template<br />

which can put it out of sync and<br />

result in errors.<br />

For these reasons, and many<br />

more, you should ensure that your<br />

will is drawn up by a specialist<br />

qualified lawyer.<br />

If I make a DIY will, what<br />

can go wrong?<br />

In short, potentially everything!<br />

At best some gifts in your will might<br />

not take effect – at worst your will<br />

might not be valid at all.<br />

Your executors<br />

• Do you know why you need an<br />

executor?<br />

• How many executors? (the<br />

answer is not always the same)<br />

• What if you don’t specify anybody<br />

to be an executor: do you know<br />

who then controls how your estate<br />

is collected in and safeguarded,<br />

and ensures that it is paid over to<br />

the rightful beneficiaries?<br />

Trustees<br />

• Do you know if your estate will<br />

need a trustee? And how many<br />

trustees?<br />

• What happens if you need a trustee<br />

but haven’t specified one?<br />

• Why are the executors usually<br />

also the trustees and do they have<br />

to be the same people?<br />

• Why might you want different<br />

types of trustees?<br />

Guardians<br />

• Do you know who will raise your<br />

infant children if you do not<br />

specify somebody?<br />

• And what role might the Family<br />

Law Courts then have in deciding<br />

who should raise your children?<br />

• Who has priority if you appoint<br />

more than one guardian – could<br />

this lead to a “tug-of-love”?<br />

• Do you want a distant relative<br />

raising your children if their only<br />

motivation is getting access to<br />

the money you have left behind?<br />

Gifts and Legacies<br />

Using the correct language in your<br />

will is vital to ensure that your wishes<br />

can be carried out after your death.<br />

• What happens if somebody you<br />

include in your will dies before<br />

you – where does that gift go?<br />

• Did you know that some gifts<br />

automatically pass to somebody<br />

else if you do not specify a<br />

fall-back provision?<br />

• What happens to a gift if you no<br />

longer own that asset at your<br />

death?<br />

• What if you have several assets of<br />

the same description but of differing<br />

financial value, e.g. cars<br />

• What happens if some items in<br />

your will have to be sold by the<br />

estate to pay debt, Inheritance<br />

Taxes, or administration fees?<br />

Even how you describe a gift in your<br />

will can affect whether or not that<br />

gift will take effect – so don’t take<br />

that risk!<br />

Beneficiaries<br />

How would you feel if you knew that<br />

your estate did not go to the people,<br />

charities, or organisations that you<br />

choose, or if it has not been used for<br />

the purposes that you had intended?<br />

• Do you know what the law say<br />

about infants receiving assets or<br />

money from your estate?<br />

• How do you ensure that you can<br />

leave inheritance for a minor and<br />

it will be protected until they<br />

reach an age that you feel they are<br />

mature enough to be responsible<br />

for it, for example at 21 or 25?<br />

• Can you make financial provision<br />

to provide for a family pet, and if<br />

so how?<br />

• How can you be certain that money<br />

you have left to a charity is used in<br />

the way you want it to be used, such<br />

as for your local area?<br />

• Why is the name, address, and<br />

registered charity number<br />

important?<br />

Whilst you want to be certain that<br />

your estate passes to those people<br />

or organisations that you choose,<br />

what if you want to ensure that it<br />

does not pass to a certain individual<br />

that you may have fallen out with,<br />

or possibly worse – that you are not<br />

yet divorced from?<br />

How would you feel if that person<br />

ended up inheriting your estate<br />

because your will had not been<br />

drawn up correctly, invalidating it,<br />

just to save a bit of money?<br />

What if I have already<br />

written my own DIY will?<br />

Contact us immediately for advice<br />

and any assistance that you might<br />

need to rectify it.<br />

And… next time you want to write a<br />

will, or make any changes to your<br />

existing will, give us a call so that we<br />

can draft your will professionally and<br />

take the worry out of not knowing if<br />

you have written your will correctly!<br />

Our team of specially trained<br />

lawyers prepare thousands of wills<br />

every year and can advise you on<br />

any of the more complicated or<br />

specialist clauses that might be<br />

relevant to your circumstances,<br />

for example:<br />

• What if I want somebody to be<br />

able to live in my house after I have<br />

died – what provisions do I need to<br />

include in my will?<br />

• What if I own my own company or<br />

run a business and want it to carry<br />

on after my death, or what if I want<br />

to pass it on to my employees or<br />

family members?<br />

• What if I own property abroad –<br />

do I need to know anything about<br />

the law of the country where that<br />

property is situated? And how<br />

does that country’s inheritance<br />

laws affect a will I write in England<br />

and Wales? And is it relevant if I<br />

already have a will made abroad?<br />

• What if any of my beneficiaries<br />

are receiving benefits from the<br />

government? Can I leave them<br />

something without jeopardising<br />

their entitlement?<br />

• Can I leave an inheritance for<br />

somebody in a way that nobody<br />

else will know who it is intended<br />

for (that is, make a secret gift)?<br />

These might sound like fanciful<br />

provisions but our specialist will<br />

drafting lawyers prepare wills<br />

with highly complicated personal<br />

and tax saving provisions like these<br />

every year.<br />

Increasingly, we are coming across<br />

DIY wills that do not make the<br />

provisions intended at the time they<br />

were written and blissful ignorance<br />

ensures that the errors in the will<br />

are never corrected. And it’s then<br />

too late.<br />

A poorly drafted will can have<br />

expensive tax consequences or lead<br />

to expensive court litigation, just to<br />

understand how the law says your<br />

estate must be divided.<br />

So don’t leave it to chance just to<br />

save a few pounds now – it could end<br />

up costing your estate considerably<br />

more than you could ever imagine.<br />
