Dear Neighbours, Welcome to the November edition of your Abbey-Link. Last month we were celebrating publishing The Link Directories for 13 years. We started out with just the Abbey-Link going to 2500 homes and now we publish the Abbey-Link, Hucclecote Link and Tuffley Link directories and distribute to 16,500 homes. We think this is a great achievement and would like to take the opportunity to say a huge ’Thank you’ to all our readers, advertisers and distributors for helping us achieve this mile stone. I’m sorry, but Christmas is now around the corner, so if you are the one that organises the Christmas parties, perhaps you can find what you are looking for in the Abbey-Link. With Hatton Court on the opposite page and Bowden Hall on page 21, both advertising their festive party nights, make sure you reserve your space quick so you don’t miss out. Perhaps you are looking to book your own Christmas event and are looking for a venue to hold it - why not try any of the social clubs we have advertising with us; Abbeydale Community Centre on page 25, Robinswood Hill on page 31 and Saintbridge Social Club on page 28. All are great venues for a party. Local churches are also holding Christmas fayres this month, so if you are looking to make a start on that shopping read more detail on page 33. Congratulations to Terry Andrews for winning this months Cineworld tickets, if you would like to be in with a chance of winning 2 Cineworld Tickets, give our Sudoku competition a try on page 33. Good luck and have a great month .... Sarah

Dave’s top tips Removing wall tiles Removing wall tiles can be an arduous task depending on the original adhesive used. Before you start ensure that any sanitary ware is protected from scratching from falling tiles.Using a bolster line it up to the edge of the tile at an angle as close to the wall as possible and strike it with a hammer. You will probably find the first few tiles to be the hardest to remove. If standard adhesive was originally used the tiles should come away fairly easily from a solid wall, any excess adhesive stuck to the wall should be removed with a scraper. If the wall is made of plasterboard be prepared to have to re-board the wall as the adhesive may well damage the wall. In some cases it is just easier to rip down the plasterboard and renew it. Work your way around the tiles chipping from the edges until all the tiles are removed. Bear in mind small fragments will fly off so gloves and safety glasses are a must. If the tiles were originally fitted with a cement-based adhesive, then be prepared to spend a lot of time to remove them, and probably allow to replaster the walls afterwards. 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 November 2018 2nd November 2018 The Nutcracker and the Four Realms Starring: Keira Knightley, Omid Djalili, Morgan Freeman All Clara wants is a key – a one-of-a-kind key that will unlock a box that holds a priceless gift from her late mother. A golden thread, presented to her at godfather Drosselmeyer's annual holiday party, leads her to the coveted key—which promptly disappears into a strange and mysterious parallel world. It's there that Clara encounters a soldier, a gang of mice and the regents who preside over three Realms: Land of Snowflakes, Land of Flowers and Land of Sweets. Clara must brave the ominous Fourth Realm, home to the tyrant Mother Ginger, to retrieve the key and hopefully return harmony to the unstable world.

9th November 2018 The Grinch Starring: Benedict Cumberbatch The Grinch tells the story of a cynical grump who goes on a mission to steal Christmas, only to have his heart changed by a young girl's generous holiday spirit. Funny, heartwarming and visually stunning, it's a universal story about the spirit of Christmas and the indomitable power of optimism. When the Whos declare they are going to make Christmas three times bigger this year, the Grinch realizes there is only one way for him to gain some peace and quiet: he must steal Christmas. Will the Grinch succeed in silencing the Whos' holiday cheer once and for all?

16th November 2018 Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald Starring: Eddie Redmayne, Jude Law, Johnny Depp, Zoe Kravitz At the end of the first film, the powerful Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald was captured by MACUSA (Magical Congress of the United States of America), with the help of Newt Scamander. But, making good on his threat, Grindelwald escaped custody and has set about gathering followers, most unsuspecting of his true agenda: to raise pure-blood wizards up to rule over all non-magical beings. In an effort to thwart Grindelwald's plans, Albus Dumbledore enlists his former student Newt Scamander, who agrees to help, unaware of the dangers that lie ahead.

21st November 2018 The Girl in the Spider’s Web Starring: Claire Foy, Stephen Merchant Lisbeth Salander, the cult figure and title character of the acclaimed Millennium book series created by Stieg Larsson, will return to the screen in The Girl in the Spider's Web, a first-time adaptation of the recent global bestseller.

30th November 2018 Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck It Ralph 2 Starring: John C. Reilly, Sarah Silverman, James Corden, Alan Tudyk Join Ralph and Vanellope in their newest buddy-comedy adventure, and explore the worldwide web in a whole new way... with humour, heart and some unexpected guests that only Disney can bring along! Vanellope von Schweetz and Wreck-It Ralph leave the arcade world behind to explore the uncharted and thrilling world of the internet. On a quest to save Vanellope's racing game, how will these two misfits ever succeed in this vast new world?

Creed 2 Starring: Michael B. Jordan, Tessa Thompson, Dolph Lundgren, Sylvester Stallone Life has become a balancing act for Adonis Creed. Between personal obligations and training for his next big fight, he is up against the challenge of his life. Facing an opponent with ties to his family's past only intensifies his impending battle in the ring. Rocky Balboa is there by his side through it all and, together, Rocky and Adonis will confront their shared legacy, question what's worth fighting for, and discover that nothing's more important than family.
