Dear Neighbour… Welcome to the July edition of your Abbey-Link. So Summer is officially here, and as I write this it certainly feels that way, the question is how long will this lovely weather last, will it make it to the Summer holidays!? With us now going into the final few weeks of the academic year, it’s the time of year when we start thinking about the Summer holidays, whether that’s going away or getting our homes and gardens ready for a few more BBQ’s and Summer parties. We have plenty of businesses on board who can help get your homes ready, and one of our garden maintenance companies, Jim’s Mowing, have given us a little insight into their business and how they can help you, read all about them on page 26. If you are hoping to get away, we have a few beauty therapists that can help you get ready, with Therapy by Sam Baggott on page 15 offering £10 off nightly lip treatments, The Beauty Spot who have great sunbed packages available, find them on page 14, and one of our new businesses to join us, The Steam Punk Rooms, on page 17, are offering a 20% discount to new clients. There are a few events taking place over the Summer that you may want to put in your diary. The NSPCC and Pied Piper are holding their annual Picnic Concert at Highnam Court in July, an evening of live music and laser shows, all the details of how to buy tickets are on page 37. If you enjoy music then pop along to an evening of Songs from the Shows taking place at St Lawrence Church in July see more on page 27. Tuffley Primary school have their annual Summer Fayre on 15th July, more details can be found on page 36 & a great local charity, The James Hopkins Trust, on page 39, are holding their Summer fete on 9th July, so please try to pop along to help a great cause, This month we are celebrating 5 years of publishing our sister directory, The Tuffley Link, so if you have a business, and are thinking of advertising, why not join us and take advantage of our birthday offer below and let us help you grow your business over the rest of the year.

Dave’s top tips Leaking gutters A common problem people are faced with after a heavy downpour of rain is that they find that their guttering starts to leak. This can simply just be a case of the gutter overflowing due to a build up of debris such as moss getting trapped, usually in the downpipe on a bend. Of course an easy fix is just to get it cleaned out. Another cause can be where the seals on a union (joint) have perished over the years and this is usually indicated by a constant dripping from the joint long after the rain has stopped. Many people may be tempted to try and seal the joint with a silicone sealant but this is rarely a long term fix. Also this makes a replacement at a later date more difficult as the old cured sealant must be removed from the guttering. The only real answer is to replace the offending union along with new seals that come with them. Many brands of guttering joints etc are of a fairly standard size but not all, so you may be lucky with just unclipping the joint and unscrewing the unit from the fascia. Replacement is the reverse procedure, you will however need a head for heights and good sturdy ladders, if you have neither then it may be best to leave it to a tradesman to give you a proper repair. 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.

Spiderman: Homecoming Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, young Peter Parker returns home to live with his Aunt May. Under the watchful eye of mentor Tony Stark, Parker starts to embrace his newfound identity as Spider-Man. He also tries to return to his normal daily routine -- distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just a friendly neighbourhood superhero. Peter must soon put his powers to the test when the evil Vulture emerges to threaten everything that he holds dear. 14th July 2017

War for the Planet of the Apes Caesar (Andy Serkis) and his apes are forced into a deadly conflict with an army of humans led by a ruthless colonel (Woody Harrelson). After the apes suffer unimaginable losses, Caesar wrestles with his darker instincts and begins his own mythic quest to avenge his kind. As the journey finally brings them face to face, Caesar and the colonel are pitted against each other in an epic battle that will determine the fate of both of their species and the future of the planet.

Cars 3 Blindsided by a new generation of blazing-fast cars, the legendary Lighting McQueen finds himself pushed out of the sport that he loves. Hoping to get back in the game, he turns to Cruz Ramirez, an eager young technician who has her own plans for winning. With inspiration from the Fabulous Hudson Hornet and a few unexpected turns, No. 95 prepares to compete on Piston Cup Racing's biggest stage. 21sr July 2017

Dunkirk In May 1940, Germany advanced into France, trapping Allied troops on the beaches of Dunkirk. Under air and ground cover from British and French forces, troops were slowly and methodically evacuated from the beach using every serviceable naval and civilian vessel that could be found. At the end of this heroic mission, 330,000 French, British, Belgian and Dutch soldiers were safely evacuated. 24th July 2017

Captain Underpants George Beard and Harold Hutchins are two overly imaginative pranksters who spend hours in a tree house creating comic books. When their mean principal threatens to separate them into different classes, the mischievous boys accidentally hypnotize him into thinking that he's a ridiculously enthusiastic, incredibly dim-witted superhero named Captain Underpants
