Dear Neighbours, Welcome to the July edition of your Abbey-Link….. At last we seem to be seeing some nice weather - long may it continue! It’s the time of year when we all start thinking about our Summer holidays, whether it’s home or abroad, we have some local beauty salons that can help you get ready, The Beauty Spot on page 27, and Therapy by Sam Baggott, where you can purchase discounted skin products with SPF, to help protect your skin this Summer. If you own your own caravan that needs a service before you go away or perhaps it requires new parts, give GL Caravan Care a ring on page 7, we can personally recommend them. Perhaps the Summer means the end of your school or college days and you are looking to earn some money. Local hotel, Bowden Hall have a variety of part and full time jobs available, see their advert on page 27 for more details. Local charity The James Hopkins Trust are holding their Summer Fate on 8th July, why not pop along, for a fun family day out, and help raise some money for them at the same time, more details on page 20. Do you fancy winning yourself a £20 M&S voucher? Well to help continue the success of the Abbey-Link and it’s sister directories, we are always on the look out for new businesses that we can help to grow in this area, and so if you know of someone who owns a business and might benefit of advertising with us, send them our way and if they decide to advertise, then there’s £20 on it’s way to you, it’s a win win situation, see our advert on this page. Congratulations to Chris Hill, the winner of this months Sudoku. Have a great month .... Sarah

Dave’s top tips Removing wall tiles Removing wall tiles can be an arduous task depending on the original adhesive used. Before you start ensure that any sanitary ware is protected from scratching from falling tiles. Using a bolster line it up to the edge of the tile at an angle as close to the wall as possible and strike it with a hammer. You will probably find the first few tiles to be the hardest to remove. If standard adhesive was originally used the tiles should come away fairly easily from a solid wall, any excess adhesive stuck to the wall should be removed with a scraper. If the wall is made of plasterboard be prepared to have to re-board the wall as the adhesive may well damage the wall. In some cases it is just easier to rip down the plasterboard and renew it. Work your way around the tiles chipping from the edges until all the tiles are removed. Bear in mind small fragments will fly off so gloves and safety glasses are a must. If the tiles were originally fitted with a cement-based adhesive, then be prepared to spend a lot of time to remove them, and probably allow to replaster the walls afterwards. 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.
