Boiler pressure help!

My boiler has lost pressure, it's a glowworm betacom 24. It has a filling loop rather than just the tap underneath which I'm used to. I've looked on the internet and it says to turn the taps kn the filling loop, but it doesn't appear to have taps...

I'm going on holiday in an hour and I want hot water when I'm home!

Those are lockshield valves so the same type of valves as the “taps” but without a handle.

I can’t see what type they are but you should be able to turn them using a screwdriver or Allen key.

Make sure you close them again when you’re done!

It looks sort of like the inside of a bolt in them. You can see a screwy (technical!) bit inside. This is sounding hopeful! Thank you so much.
