Dave’s top tips Underground water leaks The phrase “underground water leak” is one of those, which strikes fear into every homeowner’s heart. By its very nature, you have no idea how long the leak may have been occurring or what damage it may have already done. Bearing this in mind it is important to identify a leak as soon as possible and to get it fixed as quickly as you can. The first sign you have a water leak may be that your water meter is ticking over even when all of your household taps are turned off. This is a sure sign that something is wrong. If you do not have a water meter, you may have noticed patches of water in your garden or out front of your house, which never dry up. If the water is bubbling up you have fairly clear evidence. You first port of call is your water company. They will be able to tell you whether the leak comes under their jurisdiction and if you will have to pay. In most cases, if the leak is on your land it is your responsibility. Your water company will be able to give you a list of local contractors who can help you to identify and fix the leak. Generally an underground leak is not something you can deal with yourself. Contact your insurance company to see if your underground pipes are covered by your policy. You may find that they will cover the entire cost. 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.

Diane is recently widowed after 40 years of marriage, Vivian enjoys her men with no strings attached, Sharon is still working through her decades-old divorce, and Carol's marriage is in a slump after 35 years. The lives of these four lifelong friends are turned upside down after reading the infamous '50 Shades of Grey,' catapulting them into a series of outrageous life choices. 6th June 2018

Jurassic World Starring: Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Jeff Goldblum, BD Wong, Geraldine Chaplin, James Cromwell, Rafe Spall, Ted Levine, Toby Jones

It's been four years since theme park and luxury resort Jurassic World was destroyed by dinosaurs out of containment. Isla Nublar now sits abandoned by humans while the surviving dinosaurs fend for themselves in the jungles. When the island's dormant volcano begins roaring to life, Owen and Claire mount a campaign to rescue the remaining dinosaurs from this extinction-level event. Owen is driven to find Blue, his lead raptor who’s still missing in the wild, and Claire has grown a respect for these creatures she now makes her mission. Arriving on the unstable island as lava begins raining down, their expedition uncovers a conspiracy that could return our entire planet to a perilous order not seen since prehistoric times. With all of the wonder, adventure and thrills synonymous with one of the most popular and successful series in cinema history, this all-new motion-picture event sees the return of favourite characters and dinosaurs—along with new breeds more awe-inspiring and terrifying than ever before. Welcome to Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. 15th June 2018 (14th Previews)

Hereditary Starring: Alex Wolff, Ann Dowd, Gabriel Byrne, Toni Collette

When Ellen, the matriarch of the Graham family, passes away, her daughter Annie and her husband and their two children begin to unravel cryptic and increasingly terrifying secrets about their ancestry. The more they discover, the more they find themselves trying to outrun the sinister fate they seem to have inherited. Making his feature debut, writer-director Ari Aster unleashes a nightmare vision of a domestic breakdown that exhibits the craft and precision of a nascent auteur, transforming a familial tragedy into something ominous and deeply disquieting, and pushing the horror movie into chilling new terrain with its shattering portrait of heritage gone to hell.

Super Troopers 2 Starring: Brian Cox, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Erik Stolhanske, Hayes MacArthur, Jay Chandrasekhar, Kevin Heffernan, Lynda Carter, Marisa Coughlan, Paul Soter, Rob Lowe, Steve Lemme, Tyler Labine, Will Sasso

When an international border dispute arises between the U.S. and Canada, the Super Troopers- Mac, Thorny, Foster, Rabbit and Farva, are called in to set up a new Highway Patrol station in the disputed area. Unconventional police work follows, and the result is...SUPER TROOPERS 2. 18th June 2018

Ocean’s 8 Starring: Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, Awkwafina, Rihanna and Helena Bonham Carter

Five years, eight months, 12 days...and counting. That's how long Debbie Ocean has been devising the biggest heist of her life. She knows what it's going to take-a team of the best in their field, starting with her partner-in-crime Lou Miller. Together, they recruit a crew of specialists: jeweler Amita; street con Constance; expert fence Tammy; hacker Nine Ball; and fashion designer Rose. The target is a cool $150 million dollars in diamonds-diamonds that will be around the neck of world-famous actress Daphne Kluger, who will be center-stage at the event of the year, the Met Gala. The plan is rock solid, but everything will need to be flawless if the team is going to get in and get away with the ice. All in plain sight. 29th June 2018

Sicario 2: Soldado Starring: Benicio del Toro, Josh Brolin, Catherine Keener, Isabela Moner, Matthew Modine

Hucclecote Scout News 25 Scouts and leaders enjoyed a very hot camp near May Hill over the May Day Bank Holiday. With an incident hike on the Saturday and a walk to the top of May Hill on Sunday and all the usual activities with cooking on open fires, the camp went very well. Scouts looking forward to Summer Camp, joining up with Explorers for their camp in Austria with 45 in the party all together. Now Summer seems to have come at last, we will be outside on Scout meetings, cooking on open fires and building pioneering bridges and other Scouting activities. On Saturday 14th July, the group will be celebrating 90 years old. We hope all parents and past members of the group will come along in the afternoon and join in the activities which start at 2pm Please phone Terry on 521664 if you have children between 10 and 13 who are interested in joining the Scouts (Beavers and Cubs are currently fully up)

Hucclecote Garden Club We are all looking forward to our Garden Club trip to Powis Castle and Gardens later in the month. This is the first time we have strayed over the border for our annual outing which should be an enjoyable day with plenty of time to explore the Castle and have a wander around the Gardens, which hopefully house a nursery where we can purchase some plants to bring home. The Hucclecote Methodist Church Bring and Buy Plant Sale held last month was a great success, the Saturday was sunny and all were in a positive gardening mood. We were part of the Plant Sale and had a table of donated plants, the proceeds of which went back into the Garden Club to go towards the cost of Speakers, etc. We did have a few plants left over which we will nurture and have ready for sale on our table at the Hucclecote Show later this month. Our most recent Speaker was David Cropp from Worcester talking on The Gardens of South Africa. David is a most enthusiastic individual and his talks reflect his personality and vast gardening experience, with great humour thrown in for good measure! We will have a Table full of plants on the George V Playing Fields on Saturday 16th June, as part of the Hucclecote Community Day, please come along and look us up. We continue to meet at Hucclecote Community Centre on the fourth Thursday of the month, at 7.30pm. Details from Joy on 553185 or Sue on 543573. To advertise call 01452 890242

For our last lunchtime meal we went into Gloucester to CafĂŠ Rene. A lovely meal and a pleasant day, no doubt we will return. We also had a day out in Cirencester. We went to Dobbies garden centre. They have a small amount of shops for some therapeutic shopping and a large garden area where we all bought quite a few plants, shrubs and flowers. We had coffee and cake when we first arrived and we finished with lunch in the restaurant, a good day for all. We have lots of different speakers on many varied subjects. There will also be meals out, skittles, croquet, outings and cream teas for the warmer weather, so lots to look forward to. After all of our speakers we have time to socialise with refreshments. The Larkhay WI meets at the Hucclecote Community Centre on the 2nd Thursday of every month (except August) at 7.30pm. Phone Beverley on 01452 613208 or Ellen on 01452 611976 for more information or just pop in and you would be made very welcome.

Tuesday @ Two What is it? A social gathering where you can meet your own friends (or make new ones); if you like playing games (Canasta, Scrabble, Rummy Cub) these are available or bring your favourite game with you. The afternoon finishes with home made cake and a cup of tea.

Where is it held? In the Church Centre, behind the church in Larkhay Road 2 - 4 pm

Is there a charge? A donation of ÂŁ1.50 to cover the cost of cake and tea would be appreciated

When does the group meet? First & third Tuesday in month - June - 5th & 19th July - 3rd & 17th - August - 7th & 21st

HUCCLECOTE TOWNSWOMENS GUILD The Guild meets at Hucclecote Community Centre on the third Thursday each month, at 7.30 pm. At each meeting we have a speaker or demonstration, covering a wide range of topics and interests; a raffle, the bring-and-buy sales table, refreshments, and time to chat and socialise. Our most recent speaker was Jon Mason from Highfield Garden Centre, on Hanging Baskets. Jon gave a very entertaining and informative talk, and made up some beautiful hanging baskets using the selection of plants and baskets he'd brought along. He proved how easy it is to produce stunning floral displays ourselves, and shared his top tip for extending the life of hanging baskets and patio planters - daily dead-heading! Our forthcoming speakers include Frances Benton on "A passion for pearls", and "Tax Care and Toy Boys" - sounds intriguing!! Other events planned for this year include an Afternoon Tea, a theatre trip, and a coach outing during the summer. Visitors and guests are always welcome at Guild meetings. Phone Linda on 617701 for more information, or just come along!
