Dear Neighbours, Happy New Year to you all! Welcome to the January edition of your Abbey-Link….. Hope you have all had, or about to have, (depending on when you receive this edition over the holidays), a lovely Christmas. I wonder what sort of year 2018 will bring? How many of you set New Year Resolutions? I don’t personally, 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 are someone who likes to set new year resolutions though, and if getting fit is one of them - we have a couple of local Zumba classes, which are suitable for all fitness groups, see more details on pages 21 & 25. The New Year is always a time when we might think about redecorating our home - Interior Needs, opposite and Uk Blinds on page 29 both have sales on during January, so take advantage and give your home a new look this year. Congratulations to Carol Bowman , for winning the Sudoku, Cineworld tickets will be on their way out to you. To be in with a chance to win Cineworld Tickets, see page 31. Wishing you all a happy and successful 2018. 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.

Film Releases for January 2017 1st January 2018 Molly’s Game The true story of Molly Bloom, a beautiful, young, Olympic-class skier who ran the world's most exclusive high-stakes poker game for a decade before being arrested in the middle of the night by 17 FBI agents wielding automatic weapons. Her players included Hollywood royalty, sports stars, business titans and finally, unbeknown to her, the Russian mob. Her only ally was her criminal defence lawyer Charlie Jaffey, who learned there was much more to Molly than the tabloids led people to believe. 12thJanuary 2018 Darkest Hour A thrilling and inspiring true story begins at the precipice of World War II as, within days of becoming Prime Minister of Great Britain, Winston Churchill (Academy Award nominee Gary Oldman) must face one of his most turbulent and defining trials: exploring a negotiated peace treaty with Nazi Germany, or standing firm to fight for the ideals, liberty and freedom of a nation. As the unstoppable Nazi forces roll across Western Europe and the threat of invasion is imminent, and with an unprepared public, a sceptical King, and his own party plotting against him, Churchill must withstand his darkest hour, rally a nation, and attempt to change the course of world history. Previews: 13th/14th January, Release: 19th January 2018 Coco Despite his family's generations-old ban on music, young Miguel dreams of becoming an accomplished musician like his idol Ernesto de la Cruz. Desperate to prove his talent, Miguel finds himself in the stunning and colourful Land of the Dead. After meeting a charming trickster named HÊctor, the two new friends embark on an extraordinary journey to unlock the real story behind Miguel's family history. 26th January 2018 Maze Runner: The Death Cure Thomas leads some escaped Gladers on their final and most dangerous mission yet. To save their friends, they must break into the legendary Last City, a WCKD-controlled labyrinth that may turn out to be the deadliest maze of all. Anyone who makes it out alive will get answers to the questions that the Gladers have been asking since they arrived in the maze. 24th January 2018 Downsizing When scientists discover how to shrink humans to five inches tall as a solution to overpopulation, Paul (Matt Damon) and his wife Audrey (Kristen Wiig) decide to abandon their stressed lives in order to get small and move to a new downsized community — a choice that triggers life-changing adventures.
