Dear Neighbours, Welcome to the October edition of your Abbey-Link. This month we are 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. Now Autumn is here and our thoughts start to turn towards the ’C’ word. Yes, 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 14, 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. Finally any hair stylists out there looking for some part time work? Level One are recruiting, see how you can apply and for more details on page 20. Congratulations to Saira Souliman 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.
