Dear Neighbours, Welcome to the December edition of your Abbey-Link. Can you believe it’s nearly Christmas...where did that year go?! How are you doing with the Christmas Shopping? If you are struggling for ideas, why not pop along to the Cotswold Galleria in the Regents Arcade in Cheltenham, see their advert on page 20. They sell beautiful arts and crafts that are all produced locally. If you know someone who likes a pamper we have a couple of local beauticians who are selling either lovely gift sets, Therapy by Sam Baggott on page 22 or lovely pamper sessions by Bodyflair on page 25. For something alternative, how about a voucher for an art course learning how to paint your pets, see more on page 21. The James Hopkins Trust are hosting their Christmas extravaganza on 10th December at Hatherley Manor, why not pop along and help raise funds for a great local charity, see page 34 for further details. If you are still looking for some nights out during December to help get you in the festive spirit, Hatton Court, opposite may still have some availability on their all inclusive party nights. Also Coney Hill Ruby Club, see page 27, are hosting some Christmas and live music events. If you are thinking about advertising with us next year, why not take advantage of our December offer that we have for you, book to advertise in January and we will run it again in February for FREE. Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Sarah.

Dave’s top tips How to set out and check a room for square Floor tiling, carpets or any number of things around the home require a degree of setting out. Remember a quarter of an inch out at one end of a 12 foot room, means about 2 inches out at the other end. It is important to start any appropriate projects with straight and square lines and it is very easy to accomplish. The method is called 3,4,5 and for the technically minded is based on Pythagoras's theorem which we won't go into now! Suffice to say that if you measure along one wall 3 feet (or meters or any other unit), and along the other wall 4 of the same unit, the diagonal line in between the points should measure 5 units. If it does your walls are square, if it doesn't, you need to mark some points that are square to start your work. 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.
