Dear Neighbours, Welcome to the June edition of your Abbey-Link….. At last we seem to be seeing some nice weather - long may it continue! Last month we celebrated, as we have now been publishing the Hucclecote Link for 11 years last and so as always this is a time for me to say ‘Thank You’ to all of you who have helped to make this possible. To the business owners for putting your trust into the Link Directories, to my great team of distributors who ensure that you receive your copies regularly and to YOU the reader, for picking up the phone and using the fantastic local businesses that we have in the directories. Without your support all of our businesses would struggle, so Thank You. Do you fancy winning yourself a £20 M&S voucher? Well to help continue the success of the Hucclecote 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 page 29.. With the Summer season now just around the corner, if you own your own caravan that needs a service before you go away or perhaps requires new parts, give GL Caravan Care a ring on page 7, we can personally recommend them. Congratulations To Mr Dave Thomas , for winning the Sudoku, Cineworld tickets will be on their way out to you. Have a great month .... Sarah

Dave’s top tips Underground water leaks The phrase “underground water leak” is one of those, which strikes fear into every homeowner’s heart. By its very nature, you have no idea how long the leak may have been occurring or what damage it may have already done. Bearing this in mind it is important to identify a leak as soon as possible and to get it fixed as quickly as you can. The first sign you have a water leak may be that your water meter is ticking over even when all of your household taps are turned off. This is a sure sign that something is wrong. If you do not have a water meter, you may have noticed patches of water in your garden or out front of your house, which never dry up. If the water is bubbling up you have fairly clear evidence. You first port of call is your water company. They will be able to tell you whether the leak comes under their jurisdiction and if you will have to pay. In most cases, if the leak is on your land it is your responsibility. Your water company will be able to give you a list of local contractors who can help you to identify and fix the leak. Generally an underground leak is not something you can deal with yourself. Contact your insurance company to see if your underground pipes are covered by your policy. You may find that they will cover the entire cost. 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 June 2018 1st June 2018 Book Club Starring: Alicia Silverstone, Andy Garcia, Candice Bergen, Craig T. Nelson, Diane Keaton, Don Johnson, Jane Fonda, Katie Aselton, Mary Steenburgen, Richard Dreyfuss, Wallace Shawn Diane is recently widowed after 40 years of marriage, Vivian enjoys her men with no strings attached, Sharon is still working through her decades-old divorce, and Carol's marriage is in a slump after 35 years. The lives of these four lifelong friends are turned upside down after reading the infamous '50 Shades of Grey,' catapulting them into a series of outrageous life choices.

6th June 2018 Jurassic World Starring: Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Jeff Goldblum, BD Wong, Geraldine Chaplin, James Cromwell, Rafe Spall, Ted Levine, Toby Jones It's been four years since theme park and luxury resort Jurassic World was destroyed by dinosaurs out of containment. Isla Nublar now sits abandoned by humans while the surviving dinosaurs fend for themselves in the jungles. When the island's dormant volcano begins roaring to life, Owen and Claire mount a campaign to rescue the remaining dinosaurs from this extinction-level event. Owen is driven to find Blue, his lead raptor who’s still missing in the wild, and Claire has grown a respect for these creatures she now makes her mission. Arriving on the unstable island as lava begins raining down, their expedition uncovers a conspiracy that could return our entire planet to a perilous order not seen since prehistoric times. With all of the wonder, adventure and thrills synonymous with one of the most popular and successful series in cinema history, this all-new motion-picture event sees the return of favourite characters and dinosaurs—along with new breeds more awe-inspiring and terrifying than ever before. Welcome to Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.

15th June 2018 (14th Previews) Hereditary Starring: Alex Wolff, Ann Dowd, Gabriel Byrne, Toni Collette When Ellen, the matriarch of the Graham family, passes away, her daughter Annie and her husband and their two children begin to unravel cryptic and increasingly terrifying secrets about their ancestry. The more they discover, the more they find themselves trying to outrun the sinister fate they seem to have inherited. Making his feature debut, writerdirector Ari Aster unleashes a nightmare vision of a domestic breakdown that exhibits the craft and precision of a nascent auteur, transforming a familial tragedy into something ominous and deeply disquieting, and pushing the horror movie into chilling new terrain with its shattering portrait of heritage gone to hell.

Super Troopers 2 Starring: Brian Cox, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Erik Stolhanske, Hayes MacArthur, Jay Chandrasekhar, Kevin Heffernan, Lynda Carter, Marisa Coughlan, Paul Soter, Rob Lowe, Steve Lemme, Tyler Labine, Will Sasso When an international border dispute arises between the U.S. and Canada, the Super Troopers- Mac, Thorny, Foster, Rabbit and Farva, are called in to set up a new Highway Patrol station in the disputed area. Unconventional police work follows, and the result is...SUPER TROOPERS 2.

18th June 2018 Ocean’s 8 Starring: Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, Awkwafina, Rihanna and Helena Bonham Carter Five years, eight months, 12 days...and counting. That's how long Debbie Ocean has been devising the biggest heist of her life. She knows what it's going to take-a team of the best in their field, starting with her partner-in-crime Lou Miller. Together, they recruit a crew of specialists: jeweler Amita; street con Constance; expert fence Tammy; hacker Nine Ball; and fashion designer Rose. The target is a cool $150 million dollars in diamonds-diamonds that will be around the neck of world-famous actress Daphne Kluger, who will be center-stage at the event of the year, the Met Gala. The plan is rock solid, but everything will need to be flawless if the team is going to get in and get away with the ice. All in plain sight.

29th June 2018 Sicario 2: Soldado Starring: Benicio del Toro, Josh Brolin, Catherine Keener, Isabela Moner, Matthew Modine The drug war on the US/Mexico border has escalated as the cartels have begun trafficking terrorists across the US border. To fight the ever-escalating war, federal agent Matt Grave reteams with the mercurial Alejandro to eliminate the problem.
