Dear Neighbours, Happy New Year to you all, I think I can just about get away with saying that as this is your first directory of 2018! Welcome to the February edition of your Abbey-Link….. How many of you have still kept your New Year Resolutions? I don’t personally set any, only because I think I’m setting myself up to fail - but I do like to take a look back over the past year and look at all that I managed to achieve, so look at the positives from the past year, both in business and as a family, the successes we had, the places we visited, friends we saw, memories we made, and then start thinking about what adventures 2018 may bring. If you have some events that need celebrating this year, big birthdays, or maybe engagements or even weddings, then Abbeydale Community Centre opposite & Saintbridge Sports Centre on the Inside Back Cover would be more than happy to help you out. To help you get ready for those events, why not pop along to Hardings Hair and Beauty Salon, formally Steampunk Rooms based in Quedgeley. They have just rebranded, and you can read more about them on pages 22 & 23, and take advantage of their offers available to new customers. The New Year is always a time when we might think about redecorating our home Interior Needs, page 27 are still offering 10% discounts during February with their advert , so take advantage and give your home a new look this year. To be in with a chance to win Cineworld Tickets, see page 31 . Have a great month - Sarah.

Dave’s top tips Frozen Condensate Pipe Over the last few cold months I have had a number of calls from people who have had problems with their boiler breaking down. The culprit boilers tend to be the modern and now common condensing combination type boiler. This is the type that heats water on demand with no immersion tank or loft header tank. The problem has been due to the extreme cold weather we have had over the last few years causing the condensate pipe to freeze and causing the boiler to shut down. This affects both hot water and heating. The cure should it happen is usually to thaw the pipe with warm water untill the condensate within the pipe runs freely, then a quick press of the reset button upon restarting the boiler and all should be well. However prevention is better than cure, So wherever possible exposed condensate pipe should be treated in the same manner as exposed water pipe and be properly lagged to prevent the ice forming within the pipe. An even better solution is to relocate the pipework so as it runs inside the building and flows into an internal trap such as you would find under the sink. This then mixes the hot waste water from the sink with the cold condensate and is in much less danger of freezing. Things to bear in mind are to ensure the new pipework runs downhill with no air traps as this can in itself cause a boiler to shut down. Also the water should be expelled into a sewerage drain rather than a fresh rainwater drain. A little bit of thought now could save many a cold night with no heating and a lot less aggravation in the future. 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.
