Dear Neighbours, Welcome to the March edition of your Abbey-Link. At last the nights are starting to pull out and this past week there has certainly been a feeling that Spring may be just around the corner, lets hope it continues that way. I don’t know about you, but it certainly seems to help with the mood when the weather is better. We even managed to cut our grass last week! It is this time of year when we start to venture outside again and realise all the work that needs doing in our gardens. If you have work that you need doing in your gardens and feel that it’s too much for you to cope with, we have plenty of landscape gardeners, lawn men and property maintenance businesses that can help you get on top of everything - just take a look at our index on page 38 to help find what you are looking for. Don’t forget Mother’s day at the end of this month - Bowden Hall Hotel are holding a special lunch which includes a gift for mum, so if you are looking to book something special, more details can be found on page 26. If you are thinking of what to buy for Mother’s Day , we have a range of beauty therapists advertising with us, who all offer various gift vouchers or packages. Touch of Beauty are an new salon based in Brockworth, they are running an offer on massages this March, see page 27 for more info. Congratulations to Ms Dean, the winner of last months Sudoku competition, Cineworld tickets will be with you soon. Have a great month... 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.

Film Releases for March 2019 1st March 2019 Fighting With My Family Based on a true story. Reformed gangster Ricky, wife Julia, daughter Paige and son Zak make a living wrestling together in tiny venues. When Paige and Zak get the opportunity to try out for WWE, the family grabs a once-in-a-lifetime chance to turn their wildest dreams into a dazzling future. However, brother and sister quickly discover that to become superstars, both their talent and their relationship will be put to the test. A heart-warming and smart comedy that proves everything is worth fighting for when it comes to family. 8thMarch 2019 Captain Marvel Set in the 1990s, from a previously unseen period in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe that follows the journey of Carol Danvers as she becomes one of the universe's most powerful heroes. While a galactic war between two alien races reaches Earth, Danvers finds herself and a small cadre of allies at the center of the maelstrom. 15th March 2019 Us Set in present day along the iconic Northern California coastline. Adelaide Wilson is a woman returning to her beachside childhood home with her husband, Gabe, and their two children for an idyllic summer getaway. Haunted by an unexplainable and unresolved trauma from her past and compounded by a string of eerie coincidences, Adelaide feels her paranoia elevate to high-alert as she grows increasingly certain that something bad is going to befall her family. After spending a tense beach day with their friends, the Tylers, Adelaide and her family return to their vacation home. When darkness falls, the Wilsons discover the silhouette of four figures holding hands as they stand in the driveway. Us pits an endearing American family against a terrifying and uncanny opponent: doppelgängers of themselves. Fisherman’s Friends A fast-living, cynical London music executive heads to a remote Cornish village on a stag weekend where he's pranked by his boss into trying to sign a group of shanty singing fishermen. He becomes the ultimate 'fish out of water' as he struggles to gain the respect or enthusiasm of the unlikely boy band and their families who value friendship and community over fame and fortune. As he's drawn deeper into the traditional way of life he's forced to re-evaluate his own integrity and ultimately question what success really means 22nd March 2019 What Men Want Ali Davis is a successful sports agent who's constantly boxed out by her male colleagues. When Ali is passed up for a well -deserved promotion, she questions what else she needs to do to succeed in a man's world... until she gains the ability to hear men's thoughts! With her newfound power, Ali looks to outsmart her colleagues as she races to sign the next basketball superstar, but the lengths she has to go to will put her relationship with her best friends and a potential new love interest to the test. 29thMarch 2018 Dumbo Circus owner Max Medici enlists former star Holt Farrier and his children Milly and Joe to care for a newborn elephant whose oversized ears make him a laughingstock in an already struggling circus. But when they discover that Dumbo can fly, the circus makes an incredible comeback, attracting persuasive entrepreneur V.A. Vandevere, who recruits the peculiar pachyderm for his newest, larger-than-life entertainment venture, Dreamland. Dumbo soars to new heights alongside a charming and spectacular aerial artist, Colette Marchant, until Holt learns that beneath its shiny veneer, Dreamland is full of dark secrets.
