Don’t take the gamble with lottery fraud

South Glos Trading Standards are reminding us to stay vigilant when receiving letters indicating we have won a lottery, after new letters and emails using the 2016 Rio Olympics as a theme.
The scams try to trick people into believing they have won hundreds of thousands of pounds or a trip to Brazil and ask for a fee to process their winnings.
The advice is never to respond to any such communication. If you need help, contact the Citizens Advice Consumer Helpline on 03454 040506.

Premium Partners wins Award

The Premium Partners scheme at Thornbury's Castle School has won the British Chamber of Commerce South West region award for the Education and Business partnership category.
The Chamber of Commerce says, 'This year we are introducing a category that recognises the partnership between education and business in order to develop the talents of our next generation. The award highlights the significance the Chamber Network and businesses place on preparing young people for the world of work.'
They couldn't have achieved any of this without Thornbury's support, so a massive thank you!
The team will be in London in November to receive the award and to find out who the national winner will be.... watch this space!
