WINDSOR & ETON BREWERY

BEER THROUGH THE YEAR

Windsor & Eton Brewery was founded during 2010 and now proudly possesses a Royal Warrant.

Producing great classic and new beer styles, a good number of which are bottle conditioned, this

brewery has a range of very impressive ales, that includes award winners and multi award-winning

productions.

KNIGHT of the GARTER Golden Ale: (3.8% vol). Described, on the label, as ‘Sunshine in a glass’

(I agree), this golden ale is brewed with a blend of hops from the New World. A citrus aroma greets

the nasal senses, which follows, admirably, to the mouthfeel.

GUARDSMAN Best Bitter: (4.2% vol). Extremely popular, Guardsman is brewed utilising Fuggles

and Goldings whole leaf hops to great advantage. This easy-drinking, smooth production, has wide

appeal, with its copper colour and excellent taste. A favourite with numerous beer lovers.

WINDSOR KNOT Pale Ale: (4.5% vol). Brewed originally to commemorate the wedding of Prince

William and Kate Middleton, this beer uses Sovereign and Nelson Sauvin hops and has many

supporters amongst pale ale devotees.

REPUBLIKA Craft Pilsner: (4.8% vol). This splendid craft beer is one of several productions, from

the Windsor & Eton Brewery, which have won awards. Combinations of Saaz hops, Czech yeast and

Pilsner malt produce this full-flavoured delight, which I found very refreshing.

CONQUEROR Black IPA: (5.0% vol). Bringing together Cascade and Pacific Jade whole leaf hops,

plus a blend of five speciality malts, this complex and noticeably rich IPA gained great interest from

the outset. Superb, awesome and brilliant are some of the descriptions attributed to this beer.

WASTELAND Double IPA: (10.0% vol). Belgian candi sugar is one of the ingredients for this Double

IPA with ten different hops, that include some of the best of America and the New World. Another

exceptional IPA, which certainly delivers on aroma, mouthfeel and the palate’s enjoyment, from the

Windsor & Eton Brewery.

Other popular productions include Capital Dry-Hopped Lager and

Treason West Coast IPA. Ordering is easy and beers are delivered via

courier to anywhere in the UK. Visitors to the brewery are made very

welcome.

As always, enjoy!

Health Special:

If you are

tired, exercise

will help

Optimism

may help

you live

longer

Drinking

Coffee Can

Prevent

Depression

Can

seeing the glass

half full help you live

longer?

Studies have found that there is a

correlation between increasing levels

of optimism with decreasing levels of

death from cancer, disease, infection

and stroke. This is particularly true for

cases of cardiovascular disease.

Those who had the highest levels

of optimism had an almost

40% lower risk of heart

disease.

ATM Machines and Public Toilets

Are Equally Dirty

Withdrawing money from a cash machine is

something many of us do regularly, but how

many of us give our hands a wash after using

them? Cleanliness tests carried out in Britain

found that ATM machines were as dirty as

the toilets. Specialists investigated swabs

taken from the cash machine keyboards and

from public toilets nearby and found both

samples had the same bacteria known to

lead to sickness.

We hear a lot about

the negative effects of caffeine

on our health, but it turns out that

caffeine has its good points too.

Research from the Harvard School of

Public Health found that women who

drank a minimum of four cups of coffee

per day could lower their risk of

depression by 20 per cent. Earlier

research also found that females who

drank two or more cups per day were

less likely to commit suicide.

The strongest muscle in

your body is ….

Our muscle strength can be measured in

different ways. If you are referring to the

muscle that can exert the most force,

then your calf muscle, the soleus, would

be the winner. However, if you want to

find the muscle that can exert the most

pressure, then the jaw muscle, or the

masseter, would be the strongest. The

human jaw can close teeth with a force as

great as 200 pounds, or 890 newtons!

If you are physically tired, the best

thing to do is exercise as it will give

you more energy than sitting. Studies

have found that the blood and oxygen

flow through the body will give you

more energy and improve your mood.

The increase in endorphin levels can

contribute to a feeling of well-being.

Chewing Gum Makes You

More Alert

If your suffering from a mid-afternoon

slump or can’t seem to concentrate in

the morning, then try chewing some

gum to make you feel awake. Coventry

University researchers found that

chewing mint flavoured gum

dramatically reduced feelings of

tiredness. Another study on the subject

found that chewing gum can improve

overall test scores and memory by

35 per cent, relieve stress and

reduce anxiety levels.

Sit-Ups Won’t Give You A Flat Stomach

Many people fall into the trap of thinking that they

can achieve a flat stomach by doing crunches. But

the truth is, endless amounts of crunches won’t give

you the stomach of your dreams - as the exercise

only works your abs, not your core muscles. One

study published in the Journal of Strength and

Conditioning Research found carrying out six

weeks of abdominal exercises alone was not enough

to reduce abdominal fat.

JOKES:

I invited my girlfriend to go to the gym with me and then

I didn’t show.

I hope she gets the message that we’re not working out.

Why doesn't the bell ring at the gym?

It's a dumb-bell.

Saw an idiot on a treadmill in the gym...

They just put their water bottle in the pringles can holder.

My wife accused me of being immature.

I told her to get out of my fort.

I broke my finger last week. On the other hand, I'm OK!

Just been to the gym and there's a new machine there.

I only used it for about an hour, as I started to feel sick,

but it's great: it's got KitKats, Mars bars, crisps and

everything in it.

Would you like your

conservatory to be a

useable room 24/7

all year round?

A warm tiled roof converts your

existing conservatory into an

extension and will create a perfect

living space, keeping it warm in

winter and cooler in summer, giving

you a room to enjoy

I can personally recommend the TKP team after having my conservatory roof

changed to a Cosy roof. It makes such a difference and is just fantastic. I also

added a skylight which looks brilliant! Wish I'd have changed it a long time ago!

Aries - (21st March - 20th April)

October 1st's Full Moon sees your pride swell as

recognition that is deserved is given! Also, your 'heroic'

self sees you defending the more vulnerable....Making

money, the materialistic world and increasing status

seem to be fruitful areas of focus! However, with

exercise fitness you may need to get back on track...

Taurus - (21st April -21st May)

October 4th/5th sees the Moon in its Waning Gibbous

stage encouraging you to commit to investment ideas

but with an air of 'keeping it under your hat' indeed

confidential discussions may take place on a feelings

level. Taurus being comfort lovers may be seeking out

new sofas, cushions and carpets and be generally

'nesting'...

Gemini - (22nd May - 21st June)

September 10th's Last Quarter Moon stage may bring

challenge and opposition, but this marks a time for

pushing new doors, seeing which open, and indeed who

or what may be behind them! Compete to get your place!

September seems to be a month of many new starts to

new directions in life, go for it Gemini!

Cancer - (22nd June - 22nd July)

The Moon's Waning crescent September 11/13th may

see the need for negotiations, it is important to listen to

others, especially partners or family...The Moons last

quarter 9th October warns you to curb your cleverness

so as not to manipulate but your 'as cool as a cucumber'

refusing to be ruffled.... great in business matters!

Leo - (23rd July - 23rd August)

fulfillment overshines most situations, Enjoy! Leo you do

like to show off, so just be careful not to gloat!

Virgo - (24th August - 22nd September)

It's Virgo's turn for the spotlight on love as Venus enters

October 2nd. Use compromise to help heal rifts, it is Ok

to rethink relationship goals! Single Virgo's might decide

that actually they love aspects of single life, funny how

we change isn't it Virgo?, even on the friendship level it

seems your expectations have been revised, and you

have learnt...

Libra - (23rd September - 23rd October)

The Sun enters Libra September 22nd, bringing a sparkle

and an inner confidence! And by October 28th with

Venus the planet of love's arrival you are hot to sizzle! It

seems you now have the confidence to try a new look,

and you may also be feeling a little rebellious as your

need to be individual and creative dominate!

Scorpio - (24th October - 22nd November)

September 27th sees Mercury bring important

communications, emails, telephone conversations, seize

right time/place moments. The Sun enters your sign

October 22nd giving you a renewed sense of who you

are, if you have been betrayed it's time to let the hurt go,

as Scorpio why keep yourself in that prison? forgive

yourself, forgive others and become free....

Sagittarius - (23rd November - 21st December)

September 22nd/ 23rd during the Moon's Waxing

crescent, is a good time for discussing new ideas, new

shoots, births, beginnings, But someone has a sense of

at least be addressed. Also, Sagittarius unlikely

friendships, unexpected alliances may surprise you at

this time!

feeling of being overwhelmed with choice, remember

adaptability leads to stability! don't dig your heels in, go

with the flow instead, During the waxing crescent Moon

October 21st trust those instincts!, as you can read

situations well, working out that's what's being left unsaid,

you're a 'canny individual', not a lot will get past you!

Aquarius - (21st January - 18th February)

The Moon's Waxing gibbous stage October 23rd sees quite

groundbreaking confidential chats! Focus may be upon

counselling, secrets, scandals, shattering the illusions,

speaking the truth, 'the mask needs to fall' for these

passionate talks to happen....whether you are the

confessor or the counsellor these are important matters...

Pisces - (19th February - 20th March)

October 26th the Waxing gibbous Moon sees you

recognising your ritual habits, feeling tired of doing what

others want and expect of you!, out of this comes a 'shake

up' resulting in an appearance of two paths!, a fork in the

road! Summoning your power, your premonitions, dreams,

and clairvoyance should be trusted when it comes to

choosing between the two.... hmmm, interesting Pisces....

off the head and pincers. Lay the

tail flat on a chopping board and

use a sharp pair of scissors to cut a

line straight down the back of the

shell. Carefully peel the

Easy treacle

sponge

langoustine, score down the back,

then remove the grit sac.

Get the oil heating in a large

saucepan or wok – you will need

enough to come 2-3in up the side

of the pan. For the tartare sauce,

mix all ingredients in a bowl and

season.

Place the flours in a bowl with a

good pinch of salt and pepper. Add

the beer and sparkling water, and

whisk to a smooth batter.

To test if the oil is hot enough, put

a drop of batter into the pan – it

should crisp and brown within 30

secs. Dip each langoustine or

prawn tail into the batter, then

carefully drop it into the oil.

Drizzle a little extra batter over

each one while they are cooking –

this will give you a really crispy

coating. Cook them in batches,

making sure you don’t overcrowd

the pan. When golden and floating

to the surface, scoop out and drain

well on kitchen paper. Sprinkle the

scampi with salt and serve with the

tartare sauce, lemon wedges and

chips.

ADVICE TO DOG OWNERS TO HELP

THEIR PETS ADJUST TO THE CHANGE

As some return to work, we're issuing advice to dog owners to help their pets

adjust to the change...

For many of us, life has changed significantly during the Covid-19 lockdown and

it's also changed for our dogs. When the restrictions are lifted, we will have to

adjust again to returning to our normal routines - and our pets will too.

Woof

TOP TIPS FOR PREPARING YOUR DOG

• Gradually change the timings of your dog's routine to the way they will eventually be. If the time you feed

or walk your dog has changed due to lockdown then slowly start to change it back to how it was before.

Doing this can prevent your dog from experiencing frustration and anxiety when their daily schedule

suddenly doesn't match what they've come to expect.

• Begin to gradually return your dog's routine to normal before it must change. Consider the number of walks,

location and times that are part of your dog's normal routine. Gradually adjust your walks to match this. Our

dogs may not be left alone at all during lockdown or for brief intervals only, and they're getting much more

attention and interaction. But if this is likely to change when you go back to work then you need to prepare

them for that. Begin to gradually decrease the amount of attention you give your dog and increase the time

they spend on their own. This may include not playing with your dog every time they ask or not stroking

them every time, they nudge you. Don't completely ignore your dog as this may confuse them but do give

them something better to do like a comfy bed to lay on or a tasty chew to settle with.

• Give them a routine as close as possible to the one they'll experience when restrictions are lifted. Help your

dog spend more time alone by encouraging them to rest in their own bed or keeping them in a separate

room while you do something else.

• Give your dog clear signals about when they can be involved in interactions and when they need to occupy

themselves. Chew toys or interactive toys your dog can use without you can help you to do this.

• Try to keep interaction time for when you will be available once your routine is back to normal, for example

in the evenings after dinner.

• You may also want to think about leaving the house without the dog to help your dog to gradually get used

to this part of their routine again. If you need to build up this time for a longer duration or for more frequent

absences, think about going to sit in the car to read a book, so that you can leave the house and stay within

government guidelines. However, if your dog shows any distress when left alone then pause your plans and

seek the support of a qualified behaviorist.

• If you are returning to using a dog walker, friend or family member to care for your dog while you are busy,

they might be very excited or even a little apprehensive having spent time with only you. It can be useful

for you to remain home on the first walk or two, just in case your dog needs any extra support from you.

REDUCE STRESS ADVICE:

Security blankets, specialised treats and personal toys also provide comfort for stressed-out pets. Try to use items

that already contain our scent, perhaps a towel or blanket, which will make canines feel even more secure.

Calming background noise like classical music has been used to “calm the savage beast” and can work the same for

many dogs. While we’re away from home, these relaxing tones can provide comfort during our absence. Some pet

owners simply leave the television set on for some companionship while we’re busy and work, school or while

running errands.

Providing mental stimulation is just as effective as physical exercise and the two can also be combined.

Think about different types of toys available that entice a dog to work for a treat or reward.

Health & Wellbeing

Taking care of yourself is

taking care of others

I’m taking a moment to reflect before

I write; giving consideration to what

I feel may be most useful for this edition.

As we are about to enter the autumn of

2020, there seems to be a lot of concern

around ‘second waves’ of COVID-19

hitting us hard and with it the potential

for enforced local lock-downs disrupting

the usual way of life. Of course we cannot

be sure of anything and this can give rise

to uncertainty for us all.

In Occupational Therapy we promote

health and well-being and encourage

people to find a balance. Taking a

bio-psycho-social approach this allows us

to consider how a person functions, how

they think and feel and how their

environment impacts them day-to-day.

Ask yourself …

How does your body feel?

What are your fears?

What do you think about?

Are you kind to yourself?

Does your environment

benefit you?

What (if anything) could you

change?

If there is one thing this pandemic has

taught us, it is the importance of taking

greater care of ourselves. We are not all

‘in the same boat’ right now, but if we

all take care of ourselves as individuals

then we are more likely to take care of

one another in the broader sense.

Scene Local Media 01952 780058


So; what can we do?

The Immune system:

Put basically, the immune system helps us fight disease and infection and there are many reasons

it can be weak and therefore make us more vulnerable. Genetic factors can affect the way the

immune system functions, our environment and our lifestyles. We have more control over our life

styles and therefore this is what we can focus on in preparation for the colder months ahead.

• SLEEPING is essential to good health, it is the basis of fundamental good health - if you have a regular sleep/wake cycle you are more

likely to regulate cardio vascular health and maintain the natural balance of your internal organs, you are more likely to have increased

cognition and brighter moods too!

• EATING AND DRINKING habits

can be modified for optimal health,

ensuring we eat more natural fruit

and vegetables and a balance of

carbohydrates and dairy than we do

processed sugary foods – this will also

help balance the mechanism of the

bodies internal organs. We are also

beginning to understand the importance of gut health and how gut health can greatly impact mood levels.

Pro- biotics can be a great way to balance gut flora.

• EXERCISE reduces inflammation and thus frees up the immune system to fight any unwanted infections, it is

worth noting that physically active people are also more resistant to respiratory illness. Exercise increases white

blood cell production in the body and these fight infection – so it really is important for us all and if that’s not all,

our mood greatly improves after we exercise too!

• CLEANING your digital feed could never be more important than right now! According to research conducted

in America, the average mobile phone user today touches their phone 2,617 times per day. Some ‘high end’

social media users can spend up to and above five hours a day on their phone. It really is becoming a dangerous

and addictive habit to engage in. WHAT CAN BE DONE? 1. Remove unwanted advertising from your feed 2. Remove negative

people/companies from your feed 3. Reduce your screen time (there are great tools in your settings to help with this)

• ‘BE KIND TO YOUR MIND’ In simple terms we need to be mindful when our thoughts are becoming more negative than positive. It is

so normal to have fearful or worried thoughts, this is because we are hard wired to identify risk, danger and potential threat to life but

as we all know and have experienced these thoughts can often run wild in the landscape of our minds, we have to challenge those

thoughts and pay attention to where we focus our energy; ‘where thoughts go energy flows’! (sorry-couldn’t help but use that one!)

Our immune systems are amazing but we can optimize them by taking care of ourselves and when we take care of ourselves, we can

then take care of others. From basic sleep hygiene to an improved diet and raised levels of fitness we can improve the way our bodies

function. Getting outside while we can is really important as we will absorb more vitamin D through sunlight. All of this is in our power,

we can have a positive impact on our bodies and our minds and we can also try to improve the environment we live in, try introducing

oxygenating plants to your home or office to improve air quality.

The good news is that these changes can be made quite easily and the results can be felt relatively quickly, it is also very important to

remember that this is about balance NOT perfection. The point is we can try to take greater care and in trying we can also encourage

others to do the same.

‘A state of deep relaxation and serenity in

which your body & mind can heal &

Floatation is a treatment that allows you to

float effortlessly, relieving stress, aches and

pains supporting you on a bed of warmed

water letting your anxieties slip away.

Floatation is known to have physical

benefits as well as deep relaxation,

including:

l Relieving stress on joints and muscles

l Relief from muscle and joint strain

l Encouraging easier and deeper sleep

l Supporting your body to release

endorphins, which relieves pain and may

lower blood pressure.

l The Epsom salts in the flotation tanks

which can reduce inflammation and

muscle tension

Perfect for that

“The striking overlap between risk factors for severe COVID-19 and vitamin D deficiency,

Car Review

FORD PUMA

By Sue Cooke

It was so good this week to get behind the wheel of a car

that constantly pulled second looks because of its eyecatching

styling. It could also have been due to the

glorious CAR 1 number plate on the new Ford Puma. As I

put knee to tarmac to take a photo from the front, I realised

how high the bonnet sits. Flagged by wing top mounted

headlamps this Puma’s eyes are as piercing and distinctive

as the animal.

And out on the road the compact crossover has a feline

growl on hard acceleration and much more torque at lower

engine speeds. The 1 litre EcoBoost hybrid and 48 volt

lithium ion air cooled battery pack makes for a powerful

response, such that I had to keep reminding myself to

move up the six speed manual gearbox.

A display on the dash informed me when I was in hybrid

mode, which was mainly when cruising downhill. Energy

usually lost is recovered and stored during braking and

coasting. The Auto Start stop technology is impressive

when I was waiting at road work traffic lights and the

engine restarted “in the same amount of time as the blink

of an eye”, describes Ford, with no turbo lag.

In the cabin a raised ride height gives the driver a good

view over traffic ahead. Pure luxuries include a large

panoramic roof which stretches front to back, giving a

welcome wind in the hair experience on a hot day. There is

also a Lumbar Massage seat. Puma models include the

stylish Titanium, or sporty ST-Line and ST-Line X. The

latter was my road test car which adds a flat-bottomed

leather steering wheel and alloy sports pedals. Privacy

glass sits in the rear windows.

New technology will inform the driver of hazardous

situations on the road ahead before either I or the vehicle

sensors could see them.

This Puma has a fantastic degree of practicality in a

compact and efficient package. When I came to open the

Scene Local Media 01952 780058

456 litres boot there was another surprise for a car in this

price range, as there is a hands-free tailgate. When I got

a bit acquisitive at the garden centre, as I had not visited

for a long time, it was very useful to find a MegaBox

storage solution. This will house unstable items up to

approximately 115 cm tall in an upright position. Synthetic

lining and a drain plug in the bottom made it easy to clean.

The flexible load compartment can also comfortably

accommodate a box 112 cm long, 97 cm wide and 43 cm

high with the second row of seats folded flat.

The sports suspension is not as unforgiving as some of its

competitors and I found the ride comfortable. The Desert

Island Blue exterior paintwork is an exclusive optional

colour which is very attractive. One of 10 vibrant colours to

choose from.

SUVs now account for more than one in five Ford vehicles

sold in Europe. Almost 7,000 new Pumas have been sold

in the UK since going on sale earlier this year. 90.7 per

cent of those sales are the mild-hybrid engine, available

from £21,640.

By the end of my road test week, I was quite in love with

the new Ford Puma and its sporty character, combining

mild-hybrid fuel efficiency, best-in-class luggage space and

advanced driver assistance technologies in a stylish

crossover.

Car Review

VOLKSWAGEN GOLF

By Sue Cooke

Imagine driving along minding your own

business and then your VW car tells you

that you are about to have an accident.

Your car then tells other cars behind and

around that an accident is about to

happen. The driver is warned and can react in good time.

Futuristic? No, it is here now. The new Golf is the first car in

Europe to feature Car2X technology. German automotive

association ADAC declared this as a ‘technical milestone’.

Within a radius of up to 800 metres, connected vehicles can

exchange information and warn of danger or make contact

with the traffic infrastructure within a matter of milliseconds.

The technology can also communicate with nearby traffic

lights. Following the launch of the Car2X in the new eighth

generation compact car, the technology will be available in

future VW models.

The latest Golf is the most intelligent and connected yet. Tell

the car that your hands are cold and the heated steering

wheel will automatically activate. It takes a little getting used

to the sliders and touch panels for all key functions. Many of

the interior buttons and switchgear have been removed,

giving a clean profile to the digital ‘innovision’ cockpit, which

is fitted as standard. While getting used to the controls, I

found good use of the optional natural voice recognition

system.

I like the head up display which is optional on the Golf Life

trim. The speed I am achieving, and the speed of the road

are projected onto the windscreen which keeps my eyes on

the road. All cars should have a head up display. Driving in

the dark, there are subtle strips of blue light along the inner

doors and this feature offers 32 colour options. 22 separate

LED lights perform a dynamic indicator sweep function and

dynamic curve lighting, which is great if you want to show off!

You can even set up your mobile phone so it acts as the

vehicle key. Just remember to remove the details when you

sell on your phone!

Scene Local Media 01952 780058

The Golf has been around for a while,

just 45 years with more than 35 million

examples built but number 8 is

completely new and keeps the distinctive

C pillar design to show its lineage. My

road test car arrived in a gorgeous lime yellow metallic which

costs an extra £625. I realise I must have sounded quite a

braggart, when people said what a beautiful colour and I said

yes it is isn’t it!

There is a wide choice of drivetrains, four petrol, two diesels,

three mild hybrids and a powerful GTE plug in hybrid. The

most popular is predicted to be the 1.5 litre petrol with 130PS,

a manual gearbox and ‘Life’ trim. Other trims include Style

and R-Line. I road tested the same but with 150PS.

What I always like about Volkswagen cars is the positive

steering. Accelerate and corner and the tyres will stick to the

road like glue.

The majority of sales of the new Golf are predicted to be to

the fleet sector (65%) and maybe company car drivers who

clock up high mileage will use the fantastic technology the

most, but everyone will appreciate the new safety systems.

The Golf GTi, GTE and GTD are expected to go on sale in

the UK later this year. Information on the Golf R and Golf

Estate will be revealed in the coming months.

Feel free to follow us

@ Villadesigns17 on Facebook and Instagram

to keep up with our latest projects.

Villa Designs is a family owned creator of

handmade, bespoke gifts and furniture.

Matt and his partner Josie started the business in

October 2019 with a view to creating high quality

unique gifts for the Christmas of 2019. Since then

the business has evolved and we have taken on

bigger and bigger projects.

Villa Designs make a range gifts out of oak, from

small decorative ornaments, tea light holders,

coat hangers, clocks and bird boxes through to

large chopping boards, serving platters and

hedgehog homes. More recently, they have created

some bespoke oak furniture, a bar for

“the man-cave” and internal / external doors

just to name a few.

Whilst our favourite material is oak, we also have

some exceptions, with a few of our pieces being

created from beech, cherry, walnut or idigbo. The

timber we use is sourced in North Shropshire from

sustainable supplies.

We particularly enjoy going to see our friends at

North Shropshire Timber and hunting through

their stocks to find the “perfectly imperfect”

pieces of oak for the next creation.

Although we carry stock of the best sellers, we

would love to hear from our local community.

We are happy to discuss unique gifts or something

you might require for the home.

For some of the bigger items also require metal

work which we can cater for in our workshop.

The first half of 2020 has seen Villa Designs create

a number of bespoke oak solutions, we are

passionate about wood and we invite you to see

the great projects coming up in the second half

2020 and beyond.

ENJOY THE FIRST YEARS

MORTGAGE PAID ON OUR

HOMES THIS AUTUMN

Home hunters wanting to move into a new-build property

in the coming months could have their stamp duty paid or

six months of their mortgage paid thanks to a

housebuilder’s new campaign.

Time to be Moved – launched by Bovis Homes – part of the

newly-formed Vistry Group – aims to take the stress out of

moving for those climbing or putting their first foot on the

housing ladder.

Buyers can also choose a flooring package from the

campaign, which can be used on two to five-bedroom

homes, alongside other incentives including the extended

key workers initiative and the Government’s Help to Buy

scheme.

Louise Macrae, regional marketing manager at Bovis

Homes, said: “We’re delighted to launch our Time to be

Moved campaign which promises to take the hassle of the

moving process away from home buyers. Purchasers can

choose from aeither 12 months the mortgage paid offer

or a full home the stamp duty or flooring packages. on

offer. The flooring option can also be used alongside the

Help to Buy scheme. The mortgage paid offer includes

almost all our homes across the region and the stamp duty

break is applicable on all our new homes.

“The mortgage-paid offer will take buyers up to the middle

of December and beyond meaning they can take some of

the pressure out of Christmas this year by being able to

save more efficiently. Bovis Homes properties are offered

in great locations with open green spaces and plenty of

new walkways.

“They can be used for properties in our new housing range,

which offer more space with wider hallways, open plan

living and en suites and flexible living space.”

For buyers who own their own home already, the option to

use Bovis Homes’ Smooth Move or Home initiatives is

available.

Bovis Homes’ Home Exchange sees the housebuilder

buying the customer's current property, which means they

can avoid all those estate agent fees and time-consuming

house chains. It also means that purchasers can stay in their

current house until their new home is ready.

To part-exchange their home, a customer’s current property

must be valued at no more than 75 per cent of the new

Bovis Home they wish to purchase. Bovis Homes will

arrange for the buyer's property to be valued, then make

them an offer based on the valuation.

Alternatively, buyers looking to sell their home can take

advantage of the housebuilder’s Smooth Move scheme,

which can save time and thousands of pounds, with the

home builder liaising with the estate agent on the

customer's behalf, as well as paying the fees.

Using the Help to Buy – Equity Loan scheme, home buyers

need just a five per cent cash deposit, with the Government

providing an equity loan of up to 20 per cent of the value

of the property being bought. Purchasers then need to

secure up to a 75 per cent mortgage.

Bovis Homes already runs an attractive purchasing package

for key workers, which has now been extended until the

end of 2020 to include all those who have signed up for the

recent NHS volunteer scheme – as well as all those newlyclassified

by the Government as key workers in the battle

against the coronavirus.

Properties in Bovis Homes’ new collection focus on wellproportioned

exteriors with a real sense of light and flow

on the inside. They are named after British trees and

include wider staircases and higher ceilings.

Homes are available from £199,995
