Dear Neighbours, Welcome to the November edition of your Abbey-Link. It’s that time of year again when the clocks go back and Winter starts to feel like it’s setting in. How many of you have already turned the heating on I wonder! I know it’s on first thing in the morning in this house, it’s the only way to get us all up and out of bed! If you are looking to get your boiler checked at this time of year, we have plenty of good plumbers in the directory, they can be found on our index on page 38. Or perhaps you are thinking about getting new double glazing this year to keep you warm and cosy through the Winter, C&L Windows, on page 21 have a new show room in Gloucester, why not pop down and take a look. Can you believe it’s Christmas next month! Where did that year go? If you are looking for a night out for your Christmas party, then I can highly recommend the All Inclusive Party nights at Hatton Court - see more details opposite on page 2. Or why not visit the Spicy Kalkata restaurant in Longlevens, they are now taking bookings for Christmas and New Year and Abbey-Link readers can enjoy a 20% discount on both takeaways and dining in, with their advert. See their offer on page 20. We have a variety of local clubs promoting their monthly events on pages 34 & 35, including the St Lawrence Church annual Autumn Fayre, which is taking place on Sat 12th November, and the James Hopkins Trust have their Christmas Extravaganza on Sunday 13th November at the Hatherley Manor Hotel. If you have a business that is looking to promote your Christmas promotions or events. Well let us help you get into 1000’s of local homes during December. We have a great Winter Warmer Offer that may interest you on page 33. Congratulations to Chris Hill, for winning the Sudoku, Cineworld ticket will be on their way out to you.

Dave’s top tips

Preparing for Autumn Preparing for the cold weather should be done now and your boiler, or other heating systems should be serviced (By a competent, registered person). Do not wait for cold weather to find out that something is not working properly as you may well find it a long cold wait trying to get it repaired. If you have a feed and expansion tank in the loft, make sure its working well by moving the float arm up and down a couple of times to make sure the valve lets in, and shuts off, the water. While you are in the loft, make sure you have at least 270mm of loft insulation and it is laid away from the roof eaves to let in air for loft ventilation. Check pipework in the loft is insulated and all stopcocks and gate valves (this applies to the whole house) are working properly by turning them off then back on again. Check all door and window draught proofing, including the letterbox and rectify as required. 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.
