A new look for MyThornbury

We've now completed the move to our new server and we've unleashed the new design. We're still tidying up the loose ends, but if you find that anything is missing or broken, let us know:


Take the 28 day Stoptober challenge

During October, smokers in South Gloucestershire are being encouraged to take part in the 28-day stop smoking challenge - Stoptober.
We know that if you can stop smoking for 28 days you are five times more likely to stay smokefree, and Stoptober leads smokers through a detailed step-by-step programme to help them achieve this goal.
To get prepared, smokefree sessions will run throughout September at a location near you! For more info click below or call or call 01454 865502.
