Dear Neighbours, Welcome to the October edition of your Abbey-Link. This month we are celebrating our 11th year of publishing this directory, so a big thankyou to all of my customers, and distributors, and all of you who pick up and use the local businesses in the directories, without your support we would not have the continued success, so I thankyou all very much. Let’s hope we can continue to support the local businesses for another 11 years. We seem to have been fairly lucky with the weather during September, but I’m sure as we go through October it will start to feel a lot more like Autumn. How many of us will get through the month without turning the heating on I wonder! If you are thinking about getting new double glazing this year to keep you warm and cosy through the Winter, C&L Windows, on page 19 have a new show room in Gloucester, why not pop down and take a look. This is one of my favourite times of year, the changes in the colours of the trees, the days can still feel quite pleasant, and the good dramas are back on the telly! Will we all still be watching The Bake Off this time next year though?! I hate to mention it, but the count down to Christmas has now started, and if you are looking for somewhere to hold those Christmas parties then look no further than Hatton Court hotel, they hold great All Inclusive Party nights see more on the opposite page. The James Hopkins Trust are holding a Christmas Extravaganza in November, more details on page 31, this will be a great event and a great way to help raise money for a local charity . As usual we have a variety of local clubs and businesses promoting their monthly events, including the Cotswold Model Railway Club on page 30, who are promoting their show that is taking place on the 22nd & 23rd October. If you have a business and with Christmas now creeping up on us (sorry!), you may be thinking about advertising any Christmas promotions or events. Well let us help you get into 1,000’s of local homes over November and December. We have a great Countdown to Christmas Offer that may interest you on page 17. Congratulations to Nigel Clarke, for winning the Sudoku, Cineworld tickets will be on their way out to you. To be in with a chance to win Cineworld Tickets, see page 33. Please feel free to email me your Sudoku entries if you so wish: sarah@thelinkdirectories.co.uk Have a great month, and Happy Halloween! Sarah.

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.

Film Releases for October 2016 7th October 2016

The Girl on the Train The Girl on the Train is the story of Rachel Watson's life post-divorce. Every day, she takes the train in to work in New York, and every day the train passes by her old house. The house she lived in with her husband, who still lives there, with his new wife and child. As she attempts to not focus on her pain, she starts watching a couple who live a few houses down -- Megan and Scott Hipwell. She creates a wonderful dream life for them in her head, about how they are a perfect happy family. And then one day, as the train passes, she sees something shocking, filling her with rage. The next day, she wakes up with a horrible hangover, various wounds and bruises, and no memory of the night before. She has only a feeling: something bad happened. Then come the TV reports: Megan Hipwell is missing. Rachel becomes invested in the case and trying to find out what happened to Megan, where she is, and what exactly she herself was up to that same night Megan went missing. 14th October 2016

Storks Storks deliver babies...or at least they used to. Now they deliver packages for global internet giant Cornerstore.com. Junior, the company's top delivery stork, is about to be promoted when he accidentally activates the Baby Making Machine, producing an adorable and wholly unauthorized baby girl. Desperate to deliver this bundle of trouble before the boss gets wise, Junior and his friend Tulip, the only human on Stork Mountain, race to make their first-ever baby drop - in a wild and revealing journey that could make more than one family whole and restore the storks' true mission in the world. 21st October 2016

Jack Reacher :Never Go Back Jack Reacher must uncover the truth behind a major government conspiracy in order to clear his name. On the run as a fugitive from the law, Reacher uncovers a potential secret from his past that could change his life forever.

Trolls From the creators of Shrek comes the most smart, funny, irreverent animated comedy of the year, DreamWorks' Trolls. This holiday season, enter a colorful, wondrous world populated by hilariously unforgettable characters and discover the story of the overly optimistic Trolls, with a constant song on their lips, and the comically pessimistic Bergens, who are only happy when they have trolls in their stomach. 27th October 2016

Doctor Strange Marvel's "Doctor Strange" follows the story of the talented neurosurgeon Doctor Stephen Strange who, after a tragic car accident, must put ego aside and learn the secrets of a hidden world of mysticism and alternate dimensions.
