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.

Witness the rise of America's 12 hours of annual lawlessness. Welcome to the movement that began as a simple experiment: The First Purge. To push the crime rate below one percent for the rest of the year, the New Founding Fathers of America (NFFA) test a sociological theory that vents aggression for one night in one isolated community. But when the violence of oppressors meets the rage of the marginalized, the contagion will explode from the trial-city borders and spread across the nation.

A wanted man on the run, he must find those responsible, clear his name and somehow rescue his family who is trapped inside the building... above the fire line.

Hucclecote Garden Club We recently had our Garden Club Trip this year to Powis Castle and Gardens, although only just over the Welsh border it was quite a long journey, but well worth it. This National Trust property which sits proudly on a steep hill is quite a sight made entirely from red Welsh stone and set in lush green meadows and wood. The Gardens are beautifully terraced on one side of the Castle and slope down to more formal gardens at the bottom. The walk back up from the formal gardens is not for the faint-hearted, although having just consumed a beautiful Welsh cream tea, this gave us fuel for the ascent! The planting in the gardens is stunning and scent from the honeysuckle was ever present. A great day out. Work on the garden at the Pink Bungalow in Hucclecote continues, and we were fortunate to have an interesting conversation with one of the young men who live there surrounding the history and contents of the large garden pond. Originally there were eight carp introduced to the environment but this number has risen to 40+ over quite a short period of time. The pond is a great addition to this lovely secluded garden. We meet on the fourth Thursday of the month at Hucclecote Community Centre, 7.30pm. For more information please contact Joy on Gloucester 553185 or Sue on Gloucester 543573.
