Owen Stillman is running the Bristol Half Marathon on September 17th to raise money for Winston's Wish, the charity for bereaved children. If you'd like to support him, click below to visit his fundraising site.
Year 8 Tockington Manor pupil Dalis Jones came 6th in the U’13 girls London Mini Marathon just behind the GB Number 1.
Dalis led the pack for most of the 3 mile course but was overtaken by 5 very strong runners near to the finish line, completing the race in 17 minutes 30 seconds, a fantastic achievement just 29 seconds behind the winner who broke the course record.
Deputy Headmaster Jonathan Jones, who is also Dalis’ father, said “We are immensely proud of Dalis, she has had a fantastic cross country season and this really is the icing on the cake. I am convinced that studying at Tockington Manor School with its wonderful PE facilities and supportive family environment has enabled Dalis to become an outstanding athlete.”
Tockington Manor School has an Open Day on Friday May 12th from 2:30 to 5:00pm.
After the Child family lost their 20 year old son Tom to cancer after a long battle, they are raising money for the Teenage Cancer Trust, who supported him age appropriately and who looked after them all as a family.

This summer Thornbury United Reformed Church is hosting a new Memory Cafe for people with dementia and their carers from local and wider areas. It will complement the existing cafe that meets fortnightly in the Methodist Church, opening in the alternate weeks.

The Captain Tortue summer collection has arrived at Colour4Life. This is how it works: Charlene Moore will bring the Collection to YOU. It only takes two - you and two or more friends who love fashion or have no time for shopping. Get together for a coffee or a glass of wine. See the Collection and try it on, and Charlene will share fashion-savvy tips and ideas. It’s easy, relaxed and fun shopping with a few of your girlfriends. You’ll get money off for organising it too. Click below to browse the lookbook and contact Charlene on 01454 415069.
Thornbury's Christmas Lights switch on is not only a wonderful evening, with stalls and a fun fair, it is also an opportunity for a local charity to benefit from a collection on the night.
Last year’s charity, the Armstrong Hall Development Fund, received over £650 from the event.
