‘South Gloucestershire Spring Clean’ leaps into action again in 2018 and is the perfect opportunity for everyone to help keep towns, villages, streets, woodlands or green spaces free from litter.
The Council has extended the campaign for 2018 to allow more individuals and groups to join in. This year's Spring Clean will take place from 13 February to 14 May. Do come along and help clean up your local area this spring by organising or taking part in a litter pick.
Please book equipment required as far in advance as possible as numbers are limited. Click below to find out more. Let’s all help make South Gloucestershire a better and cleaner place to live and work!
With the festivities of Christmas behind you, you may be at a loose end and volunteering in your local community could be just the answer you are looking for. By giving just an hour a week of your time you can make a huge difference to those that you help, and volunteering has been shown to improve your health and happiness too!
Thornbury Volunteer Centre can provide you with information and support on volunteering opportunities in the local area which best suit your needs, skills and time available, whilst making sure that you find volunteering an enjoyable and worthwhile experience. Click below to find out more
The Alveston Singers would like to thank everyone who supported them in 2017. Donations from generous audiences at the May and December concerts amounted to £2300, which will be divided between the 2017 nominated charities The Julian Trust and Off the Record.
The choir look forward to welcoming you to their first concerts in 2018, which will be on Saturday May 12th and Tuesday May 15th.
Thornbury Sea Cadet Unit have been selected as one of the recipients of the Tesco Bags of Help initiative, which awards grants of £1-£4000 to local community projects.
The Unit wants to replace its ailing 25 year old minibus, which transports Cadets around the country to camps, courses and competitions.
Voting runs from January 8th to the end of February in the Thornbury branch of Tesco, so please support your local Sea Cadet Unit by voting for them. To vote, make a purchase within store of any value and you will receive one blue token per transaction - no need to buy a carrier bag!
If you have a youngster aged 10- 18 who might be interested in joining the Sea Cadets please email below or call 01454 411105; we meet Mondays and Thursdays 7-9pm.
