Dear Neighbour… Welcome to the June edition of your Abbey-Link. So Summer should be round the corner, and as I write this it certainly feels that way, the question is how long will this lovely weather last!? With us now going into the final academic term of the 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, Jims 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 16 offering travel sizes of dermalogica products and Beauty Salon, The Beauty Spot who have great sunbed packages available, find them on page 17. Local hair salon, Level One are looking for an experienced stylist, so if that might be you, see their advert on page 14. 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. If you are looking to hold an event, family party or celebration, we have a few local social clubs advertising that would be great venues for a party, check out our index page on page 38. If you have a business, and are thinking of advertising, why not take advantage of our 25% off 6 month package offer below and let us help you grow your business over the rest of the year.

Dave’s top tips Hard to reach screws ∗ ∗ ∗ ∗ ∗ ∗ ∗

If you find you have to get a screw into a tricky position or corner here’s a quick tip to hold the screw to the blade of the screwdriver. Take a piece of masking tape and push the screw through it with the sticky side of the tape face up. Then insert the screwdriver blade into the screw slot and fold the masking tape up to stick the screw to the blade. The screw is then held in position on the driver and can be inserted upside down and at an angle. If possible it is much easier to start the screw off if you can make a small pilot hole somehow. Another and better option would be to invest in a magnetic bit holder to hold the screws. This latter option will not work however with things such as brass screws. 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.
