Upstairs<br />

Downstairs<br />

A world of interiors.<br />

The beautiful Old School Rooms on Sherborne’s<br />

Long Street provides the perfect backdrop for<br />

a world of interiors, created by designer Kitty<br />

Oakshott. Kitty has been working in interior design,<br />

both in London and in Dorset, for more than twenty<br />

years and opened Upstairs Downstairs in 2012.<br />

These days, it’s the essential destination for anyone<br />

with a design project in mind.<br />

Here at Upstairs Downstairs no job is too big or<br />

too small. Kitty and her team will happily advise<br />

and guide you through any interior decisions from<br />

a single cushion to a whole house or hotel. We are<br />

available to talk you through ideas at our shop or by<br />

appointment to visit your home or business.<br />

Upstairs, you’ll find a fabric showroom that’s all<br />

about finding your perfect match, thanks to a<br />

collection of more than 400 fabric and wallpaper<br />

books. Stocking all the designer brands as well as<br />

smaller, less well-known independent designers to<br />

give you the widest possible choice. Once you’ve<br />

chosen your fabric, Kitty and her team of expert<br />

seamstresses and upholsterers will be more<br />

than happy to discuss producing curtains, blinds,<br />

headboards and all kinds of upholstery for your<br />

home or business.<br />

Downstairs spend a while browsing the selection<br />

of beautiful home-ware, furniture, fascinating gifts,<br />

jewellery and the other unique treasures of this<br />

fabulous emporium.<br />

Curtains <strong>–</strong> We can make bespoke curtains and<br />

pelmets in one of the many fabrics stocked in the<br />

shop, or in fabric supplied by the customer. As<br />

standard all our curtains are hand sewn and fully<br />

lined, but there are many other options such as<br />

thermal or blackout lining, with a choice of headings<br />

<strong>–</strong> all made to measure to suit your requirements.<br />

Blinds <strong>–</strong> We have a choice of Roman, Roller, Vertical,<br />

Venetian and Conservatory Blinds <strong>–</strong> all made to<br />

measure. Roman blinds are made fully lined and<br />

lined with a choice of traditional wooden<br />


atten with cords and a cleat, or a metal headrail<br />

with ball and chain mechanism for a more<br />

contemporary look. Roller blinds can be made in<br />

your choice of fabric, with blackout and wipe clean<br />

options also available. Blinds can also be made to<br />

measure and supplied via mail order for you to fit<br />

yourself.<br />

Tracks and Poles <strong>–</strong> We have a wonderful collection<br />

of poles with lots of options available, choose from<br />

wood or metal, with hundreds of different finishes<br />

and finials. We can even supply curved and bay<br />

poles for those tricky windows. Our selection of<br />

tracks is just as impressive, with lots of colour<br />

options, or choose electric remote controlled<br />

tracks for a touch of luxury.<br />

Upholstery <strong>–</strong> We offer a full strip and re-upholster<br />

service. Re-cover a favourite old chair in a new<br />

fabric to give it a new lease of life.<br />

Loose Covers <strong>–</strong> Choose a new fabric to give your<br />

old sofa or chair a new look - loose covers are<br />

great as they are removable for cleaning, so very<br />

practical for those with children or pets! We can<br />

also recommend lots of great washable and stain<br />

resistant fabrics.<br />

Cushions and seat covers <strong>–</strong> small scatter cushions,<br />

new sofa seat covers and window seats <strong>–</strong> all can be<br />

made to customer’s specifications in your choice of<br />

fabrics and trimmings.<br />

Bespoke Furniture <strong>–</strong> from headboards to footstools<br />

or sofas and chairs, our team of craftsmen can<br />

create bespoke furniture in a number of designs <strong>–</strong><br />

choose your style and fabrics and let us do the rest<br />

<strong>–</strong> pop in to the shop to see some of the bespoke<br />

furniture we have made.<br />

Lampshades <strong>–</strong> Choose from our wide range of<br />

lampshades we have in stock at the shop <strong>–</strong> or<br />

choose your fabric, style and size for a bespoke<br />

lampshade to suit your room perfectly. Our<br />

lampshades can also be made from wallpaper as<br />

well as fabric!<br />

Me, Moo Selfie, and I<br />

Introducing Lucy’s Farm<br />

Dorset based artist Lucy Tidbury, known mostly for her<br />

‘moo selfie’ designs, creates original artwork, prints<br />

and gifts inspired by our beautiful countryside and its<br />

curious four-legged residents.<br />

“<strong>Living</strong> near Wareham surrounded by stunning<br />

scenery of the Purbeck Isles in Dorset, I have no end<br />

of inspiration. I studied a Diploma in Fine Art at the<br />

Bournemouth Arts Institute and I went on to do my<br />

BA Degree in Fine Art at the University of Chichester,<br />

graduating in 2007. I took the leap to become a full-time<br />

artist back in 2014 and haven’t looked back!<br />

I show my work at various shows across the country and<br />

I am always adding new items and designs to the range.<br />

The Moo Selfie range is my most popular, combining<br />

our beautiful landscape with its curious four-legged<br />

residents, you’ll often see me walking the Purbeck Hills<br />

with my Sprocker Spaniel Ned for inspiration! He’s<br />

a rescue from Margaret Green Animal rescue and is<br />

regularly by my side at the shop and at shows. “<br />

In 2017 Lucy opened her shop ‘Lucy’s Farm’ in the centre<br />

of Swanage which is also used as a studio space<br />

where Lucy works on her current commissions and<br />

latest paintings. As well as the humorous farm animal<br />

paintings Lucy is well established as a Pet Portrait<br />

artist, capturing animals in original oil paintings, Lucy<br />

has painted an array of pets over the years from dogs,<br />

cats and horses to guinea pigs, alpacas and rabbits.<br />

You can view Lucy’s work and see what she’s working on<br />

by visiting her shop in Swanage and you can also head to<br />

the website to see the full range and find out more about<br />

Lucy and the Moos.<br />

Lucy’s Farm is tucked away in the heart of Swanage,<br />

opposite Java Café and not far from the famous<br />

Chococo chocolate shop, you’ll find it in Tilly Mead<br />

Courtyard where there’s a real wealth of independent,<br />

creative, small businesses, from traditional fishmongers<br />

and florists to funky Cafés, restaurants and galleries.<br />

Damers<br />

Eco Crew:<br />

No Plastic,<br />

Fantastic!<br />

Eco Schools is at the heart of the life of the 450 pupils<br />

at Damers First School. Every class has an Eco ambassador<br />

who forms the Eco Crew. Sustainability is embedded<br />

across our curriculum through planned activities. Each<br />

class makes a termly pledge to help animals, people or<br />

the environment giving every child the opportunity to<br />

have a voice and speak passionately about environmental<br />

issues they believe in. Katie White, Eco assessor<br />

said, “The School has clearly demonstrated commitment<br />

to Eco Schools. It was great to see this was led by the<br />

pupils and they were really heading it up, with a strong<br />

ability to speak for themselves, debate and question<br />

difficult subjects.”<br />

All children at the school garden which is really important<br />

for health and environmental education. They work<br />

with volunteers in the school garden growing seeds in<br />

our plastic bottle greenhouse, planting seedlings out<br />

and harvesting what they have grown to be cooked into<br />

a dish related to a country or part of the Big Soup. The<br />

local garden centre provided resources and time and in<br />

September 2018 Damers came second in the Cultivation<br />

Street School Garden Competition. All the school’s food<br />

waste is put in our Ridan Food Waste Composter.<br />

The children have been active in getting the local community<br />

to recycle - printing cartridges, pens, biscuit<br />

wrappers, crisp packets, soap dispensers, baby pouches,<br />

pet food etc. This helps the environment and we raised<br />

£2,000 so far with the money going towards a bird hide<br />

and wildlife area with pond.<br />

The school became an SAS Plastic Free School in May<br />

2018. Children launched Refill Poundbury signing up 23<br />

businesses and appeared on Newsround. They contacted<br />

businesses supplying school fruit and milk asking if fruit<br />

could come in card boxes and milk in reusable glass bottles.<br />

They wrote to local head teachers asking them to<br />

become plastic free schools. They put pressure on Brace<br />

of Butchers about plastic used and this business implemented<br />

their ideas, establishing a waste free shop. They<br />

created posters giving the local community ideas on how<br />

they could reduce plastic.<br />

Most importantly, the children led a campaign to help<br />

Dorchester achieve SAS Plastic Free Community Status.<br />

They have given presentations to many community<br />

organisations across the town and gained their support<br />

including Dorchester Chamber of Business, Dorchester<br />

Bid, the Town Council. The children have signed up 84<br />

11<br />

businesses and each of these businesses have removed<br />

at least 3 single use plastics or found sustainable alternatives.<br />

In July Dorchester became the 67th location<br />

and 3rd location in Dorset to achieve this status. The<br />

children have since set up a steering group with influential<br />

members of the town to help them carry on their<br />

great Plastic Free work making Dorchester as green as<br />

possible. They have been invited onto Dorset Council’s<br />

climate change panel as the Council realises the power<br />

of the children’s message and the influence they have<br />

had across the town and the county. The children won<br />

four awards at the Young <strong>Enterprise</strong> Fiver Challenge<br />

with their product Waxtastic No Plastic, an alternative to<br />

cling film. They sold the product at local events raising<br />

an amazing £4500 which has helped finance a school<br />

nature area. Their resilience is amazing.<br />

The school are ambassadors for Delphis Eco, an ecological<br />

cleaning product we have used across the school<br />

for the last 4 years. The packaging is made from 100%<br />

recycled plastic bottles and they were the first company<br />

to do this in 2017. The children sell delphis eco products<br />

to parents, staff and businesses after school and<br />

at weekends at Farmers Markets. The product has just<br />

been launched in Robert Dyas Stores across the country.<br />

It has the Royal Warrants for the Queen and Prince<br />

Charles. Our school cleaner Debbie Grubb features on<br />

one of the bottles as part of a quote she said.<br />

Damers First School children with help from their teacher<br />

Edd Moore came up with the idea of Boomerang Bag<br />

Dorset to help reduce the amount of single use plastic<br />

bags being used. The children have inspired the local

community and community groups to donate fabric and<br />

make fabric bags. Making bag events have been set up<br />

around the town. Businesses and the WI have help to<br />

support the children’s idea. The Boomerang Bags go into<br />

independent shops for members of the public to use for<br />

free if they forget their own bag. They then bring the<br />

bag back when they are next in town with their reusable<br />

one. The scheme was launched by HRH Prince Charles in<br />

May.<br />

A Year 3 class, as a pledge, took part in a CPRE (Campaign<br />

to Protect Rural England) Green Clean with students<br />

from Thomas Hardye School. They collected 156<br />

plastic bottles and cans raising £15.60 using the reverse<br />

vending machine. Damers’ children inspired Hardyes to<br />

use recycle bins and set up a green committee. A few<br />

weeks ago the children and The Thomas Hardye Students<br />

took part in the Green Clean, litter picking the<br />

same route as last year. They collected 59 plastic bottles<br />

and cans which was considerably less than last year<br />

which shows that work is being down to clean up the<br />

area. Earlier in the year the children went to Westminster<br />

to speak with Michael Gove about the importance of<br />

an all in Deposit Return Scheme. They didn’t take no for<br />

an answer and were filmed by Newsround while questioning<br />

him which stimulated national interest. In March<br />

the school was awarded the Jane Goodall Roots and<br />

Shoots best Educational Institution for the plastic free<br />

campaigns they have led.<br />

The school has been included in “Plastic Game Charger”,<br />

a book written by Amanda Keetley of Less Plastic,<br />

which showcases the work the children have done at<br />

school and in the local community to reduce single<br />

use plastic. The children hope that it will inspire other<br />

schools and community groups to use their ideas to<br />

start their own plastic free campaign in their villages,<br />

towns and cities.<br />

Isla Lester aged 8 has been short-listed for Best Youth<br />

Volunteer at the Dorset Volunteer Centre Awards with<br />

winners to be announced at the end of October. She<br />

asked for a litter picker for Christmas and has since<br />

litter picked her street, local beaches, countryside and<br />

even asked to litter pick the Sea Life Centre in Weymouth.<br />

She gives up her weekends and after school<br />

to speak to businesses and community groups about<br />

reducing single use plastic. She now has a Blue Peter<br />

Green Badge! Damers Eco Crew have been short-listed<br />

for Best Youth Volunteer Group.<br />

Damers First School have been short-listed for Schools<br />

Champion in the Surfers Against Sewage Awards. The<br />

Ceremony will take place on Thursday 21st November<br />

at Bristol Museum and Art Gallery. The awards were<br />

short-listed by an all star judging panel that included<br />

Ben Fogle, Helen Glover, Liz Bonnin and Hugo Taholm.<br />

Spotlight on: Sculpture by the Lakes<br />

Nature, art and soul unite at Tincleton, Dorchester<br />

Set in 26 acres of Dorset’s finest countryside, Sculpture<br />

by the Lakes is the go-to venue for art, gardens and<br />

peaceful days out. Over the past few months, this iconic<br />

sculpture park has added even more to its offering.<br />

Home to leading contemporary sculptor Simon Gudgeon<br />

and his gardening wife Monique, Sculpture by the<br />

Lakes has been described as one of the most beautiful<br />

and unique sculpture venues in the UK. Set alongside<br />

Dorset’s River Frome, with three lakes, wildlife ponds,<br />

streams, meandering woodland paths and more formal<br />

gardens, it is the perfect place to spend the day, to<br />

experience art and landscape and not merely to view it,<br />

and to recharge mind, body and soul.<br />

Not just a sculpture park<br />

Sculpture by the Lakes is as much a destination for art<br />

connoisseurs as for garden enthusiasts, nature lovers<br />

and foodies. Visitors can experience a day visiting<br />

The Barn Gallery, one of three gallery spaces on site;<br />

enjoying home-cooked food at The Gallery Café; and<br />

walking around the park itself taking in the beautiful,<br />

tranquil surroundings. There are also private areas<br />

available to hire for the day, such as The Riverkeeper’s<br />

Hut, a beautiful shepherd’s hut situated on the river’s<br />

edge, or The Island, a private, enclosed pavilion with soft<br />

seating, picnic table and wood-burning stove.<br />

The art<br />

Simon Gudgeon has attained worldwide recognition with<br />

exhibitions across the globe. His work features in several<br />

important private collections such as those of HRH The<br />

Duke of Edinburgh, TRH The Prince of Wales and The<br />

Duchess of Cornwall, and TRH The Duke and Duchess<br />

of Cambridge. Simon’s sculptures also feature in public<br />

spaces such as Woburn Abbey, Hyde Park, Kew Gardens<br />

and the National Museum of Wildlife Art in Jackson Hole,<br />

Wyoming, USA.<br />

As a venue for both international and UK-based artists,<br />

Sculpture by the Lakes boasts three gallery spaces; The<br />

Gallery Café, Studio One and the newly-opened Barn<br />

Gallery, making it the largest art location in Dorset.<br />

Featuring smaller works by Simon, The Barn Gallery<br />

also showcases work by local artists including Jason<br />

Anderson, Julie Brunn, Julie Ann Scott and Laura Rich,<br />

alongside USA-based artists such as Andrew Denman,<br />

Guy Combes, Dennis Boyd and September Vhay. A rolling<br />

series of group and one-man shows is held throughout<br />

the year, plus regular residencies and demonstrations by<br />

guest artists.<br />

The experience<br />

Under the banner of Mind, Body and Soul, the sculpture<br />

park is now home to a range of well-being courses and<br />


workshops including a weekly meditation group, regular<br />

yoga retreats plus shiatsu healing, makko-ho and<br />

qigong sessions. Added to this is a burgeoning <strong>Winter</strong><br />

Art School to tempt you into taking on a new challenge<br />

or brushing up neglected creative skills. Highly<br />

talented lecturers and tutors from around the globe<br />

offer courses on a huge range of disciplines from oil<br />

portraiture to tassel making, stone carving to jewellery<br />

making, furniture painting to needle felting, plus a<br />

choice of drawing and painting techniques. The team<br />

has also devised a practical range of garden and outdoor<br />

workshops; rose and fruit tree pruning, propagating and<br />

wildlife gardening are just a selection of those available.<br />

The food<br />

The fully licensed Gallery Café serves delicious<br />

home-made food all day, offering vegan and glutenfree<br />

options across the menu. From tea, coffee and a<br />

selection of home-cooked cakes to light bites, quick<br />

snacks and three-course lunches complimented by a<br />

well-chosen wine list, local beers, ciders and soft drinks<br />

for drivers, everyone is catered for. Visitors still hungry<br />

after a post-lunch walk around the park can even finish<br />

their day with a traditional cream tea. The quarter-acre<br />

Kitchen Garden is open for visitors to wander through<br />

and supplies The Gallery Café with fresh produce daily,<br />

whilst the flock of free-range hens ensures a steady<br />

supply of eggs for the kitchen.<br />

The venues<br />

Recently licensed as a wedding venue, Sculpture by the<br />

Lakes is a truly unique place to celebrate, whether it be<br />

a marriage ceremony or special birthday. The Retreat<br />

overlooks the River Frome and can accommodate up<br />

to 60 people seated or 100 for a standing reception.<br />

Smaller venues such as The Riverkeeper’s Hut, The<br />

Island or The Pavilion are perfect for smaller, more<br />

intimate groups of four, six or eight people respectively<br />

and include a personally delivered picnic made freshly<br />

by The Gallery Café team - an ideal way to enjoy the<br />

sculpture park and spoil family and friends.<br />

Entry to the sculpture park is £10 per person and entry<br />

to the Gallery Café, Studio One and The Barn Gallery<br />

is free. Sculpture by the Lakes is open 10am-5pm<br />

Tuesday to Saturday from October to the end of March<br />

and Wednesday to Sunday from April to the end of<br />

September. No children under 14 years, and no dogs. For<br />

Spotlight on: Elaionaki<br />

Elaionaki Extra Virgin<br />

Olive Oil derives solely<br />

from olives grown in our<br />

small grove overlooking<br />

the Gulf of Pagasitikos in<br />

central Greece.<br />

As a family business, we<br />

can trace the oil from<br />

our trees through cold<br />

pressing and shipping to<br />

Poundbury, where we do<br />

the bottling and labelling.<br />

It has a delicious, light,<br />

fruity flavour reminiscent<br />

of the fresh olive oil<br />

enjoyed in local Greek<br />

tavernas, unlike that sold<br />

in most supermarkets.<br />

Celebrate Good Skin<br />

News from Sarah Dale Aesthetics<br />

We moved to Buttermarket, Poundbury in October 2018<br />

to establish our own Nurse led skin and laser clinic.<br />

Sarah Dale Aesthetics (SDA) has been in business for<br />

over 14 years, previously working from premises in<br />

central Dorchester. Delighted by the response from our<br />

regular customers we have welcomed on average 43<br />

new customers each month since our move. Customers<br />

enjoy the free accessible parking outside the clinic.<br />

In addition, the FRAX naturally treats the lips, plumping<br />

and improving the definition of the lip contour. In<br />

August, we launched the Lipofirm Med. This offers a<br />

range of treatments for the face and body with excellent<br />

results. The body treatment includes body contouring<br />

and fat reduction, and can help to reduce and improve<br />

cellulite. The face treatment offers a three-way nonsurgical<br />

facelift.<br />

It has been a pleasure to introduce two new clinicians<br />

to our team. Alongside them we have a knowledgeable<br />

reception team, who are trained and able to advise<br />

customers about skincare products from our Medik8<br />

and Heliocare ranges. Our well established treatments<br />

of Laser/ IPL for permanent hair removal and skin<br />

rejuvenation, as well as Venus Freeze for lifting and<br />

tightening, remain extremely popular. We’ve recently<br />

invested in a FRAX laser, offering more intensive<br />

treatments for skin resurfacing and reduction of fine<br />

lines and wrinkles.<br />

We offer free skin analysis with our experienced<br />

clinicians where you can discuss the right treatments<br />

and products for you.<br />
