Editor: Stacey Thomas I am the publisher for all The Works magazines and I am now looking to submit some interesting articles, which I hope, will complement our already popular magazine. I live in Gloucester with my baby daughter, husband and cocker spaniel. I enjoy walking, gardening and anything that makes me laugh! For future issues I will be looking for local topics, your opinions (good or bad!), stories & people of interest so any suggestions would be most welcomed please email info@theworkslocal.com. As a community magazine we are always trying to extend our links with local businesses and believe that our low budget advertising offers could be the answer to promoting your business during the current “credit crunch� climate.

DAVE’S TOP TIPS Using Wall plugs Many types of wall plugs exist and new designs are being brought out all of the time. Make sure that you use the correct drill and the correct screw or else the fixing will not work. Wall plugs should not be used in hollow plasterboard walls as other fixings are available for this. Mark the length of the plug on the drill using some tape. If you are drilling through a wall that has old plaster that is likely to flake then it is best of you drill a little deeper and ensure that the plug is pushed through the plaster and into the masonry behind, so that the plaster does not crack when the screw is tightened. Before drilling a hole into a wall you must ensure that no services such as pipes or cables are running where you intend to drill. When drilling through plaster into masonry it is best if you do not use hammer action until you hit the masonry. If you try to drill the plaster using hammer action you could damage the plaster and could drill the hole in the wrong place. When you reach the desired depth you can remove the drill from the hole. Insert the correct size wall plug and tap it home with a hammer. Remember if the plaster is likely to flake tap the plug further into the brickwork so as to prevent flaking when the plug expands. Finally insert the correct size screw and tighten up. 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.

Gloucester Martial Arts Team Xtreme Academy

We are a local Martial Arts school based in Gloucester. The school has opened a brand new Martial Arts Academy on 4th December 2011. Gloucester Martial Arts Team Xtreme Academy, is a martial arts school set up by Alan Carter, who has over 30 years experience of studying martial arts, and has run the club for 8 years now. Alan has chosen to take a big step and open up the Martail Arts Academy, based at 236 - 240 Barton Street, with pro kick boxer Katie Sendall.

This has been a dream come true for both Alan and Katie, after building up a student base of 165+ students in schools around Gloucester, they decided the time had come to be able to offer their students a martial arts academy, offering even more to existing and new students alike, and bringing to life a disused building within the community. The new academy has a matted dojo area of 3000 sq ft, a boxing ring, hanging bags, and changing facilities. They will be teaching children from 3 years to our oldest student who is 53 , the academy will be open 7 days a week , 9 till 9 Mondayon to Friday and 9-5 on weekends. The academy is very much focused on being family orientated where parents can watch their children study martial arts in our viewing area . The Academy is very fortunate to also have several pro fighters who are training at the Academy. All are welcome , the academy will also have several ladies only sessions , circuit classes , adult only and our little bears club for 3 to 6 year olds, in fact there only currently over 40 sessions a week available to suit everyone. As this is a new Academy, there is currently an offer which expires at the end of January, offering an initial set up fee of ÂŁ50.00 (normal price ÂŁ100), this includes 1 years insurance and licensing, free uniform and unlimited training in the first month. Price plans are then available to suit. Come down to the Academy this week and see what we have to offer.
