A bit about “$EEH\ $EEH\ $EEH\/LQN� /LQN

Dear Neighbours, Welcome to your June edition of your Abbey-Link It’s a month for celebrations this month, we are celebrating our 5 years of publishing our sister magazine, the Hucclecote Link, which covers the Hucclecote and Coopers Edge areas and we are also celebrating the growth of the Abbey-Link, as it is now being distributed to the Upton St Leonards area on a bi-monthly basis. Whilst celebrating I must say a big thankyou also to everyone who helps to keep this local business alive, that includes the businesses that advertise in the magazine, my team of distributors who get the magazines through your door and to you the reader for using the businesses in the magazine and so helping to keep them in business. During the past couple of years where we have constantly been surrounded by doom and gloom about the economy in the local / national papers, I would like to think we are proof dŚĞ>Ĺ?ŜŏĹ?ĆŒÄžÄ?ĆšĹ˝ĆŒĹ?ÄžĆ?Íž'ůŽƾÄ?ÄžĆ?ĆšÄžĆŒÍż>ƚĚ͗ that actually these hard times have shown that people do value local businesses and do use them, which will all go towards doing $EEH\/LQN our bit to help our local economy.

,WVHDV\WREHLQ

If you have enjoyed receiving your Abbey-Link over recent years and have used some of the businesses that are in the magazine, perhaps you could forward me a few words about what it is you like about the magazine or some comments about the businesses you have used in the magazine. Maybe there is something that you would like us to feature in future editions of the magazine, we are always interested to hear your views and comments so please just drop me a line (my address in at the bottom of the index on page 42) or email me at : sarah@thelink-directories.co.uk All comments received by 31st June will go into a draw and the winner will receive 2 tickets to Cineworld. This month also sees the Diamond Jubilee Celebrations, giving us all an extra bank holiday‌.how will you be spending yours? If you are still looking for ideas over that weekend, the Hucclecote Community Association are hosting a Diamond Jubilee Celebration Event on Saturday 3rd June, from 1.30pm, with a parade from Hillview School followed by activities in King George V playing fields, all are welcome and there’s no admission charge.

Ladders account for more than a quarter of all falls from height with, on average, 12 people a year dying from the fall and over 1200 suffering major injuries. If you have to use a ladder around your home, prevent such a fall from happening by following these hints and tips: +ROGWKHUXQJVQRWWKHVLGHVZKHQ\RXFOLPERUGHVFHQGDODGGHU'RQÂśWKXJWKHODGGHU climb with your arms straight and your body upright. Do not lean away from the ladder or stretch in such a way that your centre of gravity it outside the line of the ladder. Keep yourself positioned so that your belt buckle (navel) remains between the uprights. Make sure that the ladder is in good repair. Ladders should be regularly checked to ensure they are in a safe and workable condition. If you spot any defects, the ladder should be taken out of use immediately and replaced. Use a ladder that is long enough for the task to avoid excessive reaching and make sure you place the ladder at a safe angle (75°). Use the 1 in 4 rule, ie place the base 1 unit out for every 4 units up. Use the top 4 rungs of a ladder as hand-holds only. If you try to stand on them and grab something like a gutter for support then you may fall. Fit a stand-off to the top of a ladder and hold it away from overhanging eaves to allow you to work on the gutters. On soft ground stand a ladder on a board to stop it sinking, screw batten to the board to prevent ladder from sliding outwards and tie/stake it. If a ladder is in one position for a lengthy job, tie it to sturdy pegs driven into the ground on each side of uprights to prevent it slipping. Never climb a ladder with your hands full â&#x20AC;&#x201C; instead raise and lower tools and other items in a well balanced bucket tied to a length of rope. Finally carry out the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;3 Rung Ladder Testâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x201C; with the ladder set up, climb 3 rungs and jump up and down, then lean out to each side to check that it wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t settle. Remember, ladders should only be used for low risk, short duration work. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take risks - if you are in any doubt call Bright Sparks on 01452 521112. We will be happy to provide a free, no-obligation quotations and NO job is too small. Please mention $EEH\/LQNwhen responding to adverts

Hearts and Hurricanes WI The new WI held its second meeting at their new venue of Coopers Edge School on Wednesday 9th May at 7.30pm. The speaker was chocolate expert Dr Phil Bischler who certainly knew the way to a womanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s heart when he provided lots of chocolate to taste whilst he spoke about a topic that he is obviously very passionate about. The meeting was followed by a cuppa and a natter, raffle and book swap. The next meeting will be on Wednesday 13th June 2012 at 7.30pm and the speaker will be Liz Godsell of Godsellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cheese, award winning Artisan cheesemakers based in Leonard Stanley. Godsells sell their cheeses at various farmers markets and also supply to Harrods so it should be a particularly tasty evening! There will be lots of cheese to try and Liz will also be selling cheese on the evening. All women are welcome, membership is ÂŁ31.50 annually or ÂŁ3.00 for non members. For more information see our ad below.
