Dear Neighbour… Welcome to the April edition of your Abbey-Link. Spring has officially arrived! The clocks have gone forward, and so the evenings will start to get lighter, the weather a little warmer (fingers crossed) and we will all start to get out and about a bit more. It’s also time when we start to think about giving our homes a good Spring clean. Well we have plenty of businesses that can help you with that. We have Time for You on page 30, a cleaning company who can help with either regular or one off cleans around your home. Perhaps the exterior of your homes could do with a tidy up, we have Al’s Window Cleaning on pages 20 & 12, who can get your gutters and windows cleaned and on our index on page 38, we have a list of garden maintenance and property maintenance companies who can help get your homes and gardens ready for the Summer. With the weather changing, the Gloucester and Severnside Co-op Bowls club are currently recruiting new players for the season ahead, they have an open day in April so if you fancy popping along to find out more read about it on page 24. Upton St Leonards Tennis club are also looking for new members this season, see their advert on page 37. If you fancy doing something for charity this year, then local charity the James Hopkins Trust have their annual Golf Day in May and Linc are organising a 3 Counties Cycle Ride in June - more details on both of these can be found on pages 37.

Dave’s top tips Hard to reach screws ∗ ∗ ∗ ∗ ∗ ∗ ∗

If you find you have to get a screw into a tricky position or corner here’s a quick tip to hold the screw to the blade of the screwdriver. Take a piece of masking tape and push the screw through it with the sticky side of the tape face up. Then insert the screwdriver blade into the screw slot and fold the masking tape up to stick the screw to the blade. The screw is then held in position on the driver and can be inserted upside down and at an angle. If possible it is much easier to start the screw off if you can make a small pilot hole somehow. Another and better option would be to invest in a magnetic bit holder to hold the screws. This latter option will not work however with things such as brass screws. Regards Dave Stevens.

If in doubt call me (see main advert for number) and I will do the investigating for you. Disclaimer. All advice above is given in goodwill with many years experience. We cannot guarantee however that your problems will be rectified so please, if in doubt call us before undertaking any works yourself.

Fast and Furious 8 The latest installment of the Fast and the Furious franchise welcomes two Oscar-winning actresses: Charlize Theron plays Cipher, the latest villain to torment Dominic Toretto and his crew, while Helen Mirren joins the cast after publicly lobbying for a role to sate her real-life love of racing. 21st April 2017

Their Finest The year is 1940, Britain. With the nation devastated by the war, the British ministry turns to propaganda films to boost morale at home. Realizing their films could use "a woman's touch", the ministry hires Catrin Cole (Gemma Arterton) as a scriptwriter in charge of writing the female dialogue. Although her artist husband looks down on her job, Catrin's natural flair quickly gets her noticed by charming lead scriptwriter Buckley (Sam Claflin). Catrin and Buckley set out to make an epic feature film based on the Battle of Dunkirk starring pretentious fading movie star Ambrose Hilliard (Bill Nighy).
