Dear Neighbours, Welcome to the July edition of your Abbey-Link. So unfortunately we are not out of the woods yet re Covid and ‘Freedom Day’, as some are calling it, has been pushed back by 4 weeks. As I am writing this the numbers are on the rise again, but still the vaccine programme is going well, so let’s keep everything crossed that during those extra 4 weeks many adults will have received both vaccinations and that despite the covid cases rising, the numbers of patients in hospital beds remains low. So now the question on everyone’s mind is where will we be able to go for our Summer holiday? I know that as I have family living abroad, I can’t wait to be able to visit them, Covid allowing of course - but sadly the odds are looking slim for being able to visit again this Summer! On a more positive note, our Community & sports centres are now also opening up and events can start to take place, so if you are looking to get back out there or are hoping to plan an event - do get in touch with them, see Saintbridge Sports Centre on page 2. The Cinema has been able to open again, and so you can find this months film listings on page 25, along with a chance to win 2 Cineworld tickets by completing the Sudoku on page 24. If you are thinking of advertising your business, why not give us a try and take advantage of our Summer Sale and get 25% off our rates in July. Please do keep on supporting our local Businesses, they need it now more that ever. Have a great month but please all continue to take care and keep safe Sarah.

Dave’s top tips Working safely DIY enthusiasts need the same protection as tradesmen. This includes protective goggles and gloves, protective masks and ear protectors. Dust, sprays, and flying chips are not uncommon in DIY work – which is why you should protect your eyes. Standard protective goggles are usually sufficient. When performing work like sawing, sanding or chiselling, you should not underestimate the risk of possible hand injuries caused by chips. Full protection is only offered by special protective gloves. You should not wear any gloves when using hand-held circular saws, belt sanders and drills because they can get caught in the rotating tools. Don't forget breathing protection: When drilling, sawing, sanding, planing or routing, you should protect your lungs with a disposable protective mask – even better with a fine dust mask. When dealing with insulation wool or solvent-based paints and varnishes, masks with activated carbon filters provide the best protection. Don’t forget the strain put on your ears when drilling, sawing, sanding, etc. Earplugs are sufficient for sporadic use. If you frequently work with noise-intensive power tools, it is advisable to use ear muffs. Wear the right clothes: They should be comfortable, tight-fitting and flameproof. Watches and jewellery are dangerous and should be taken off before you begin with the work. For your own safety, tie up long hair to prevent it getting caught up in running machines. 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.
