Age UK South Gloucestershire has a waiting list of over 60 older people who are feeling lonely and need a befriending volunteer to visit them once a week for a chat.

History uncovered at Heritage

Workers at Heritage in Thornbury who removed two backing panels to update them with new fabric discovered a (very) old fireplace and adjacent large alcove. While Heritage explore ways of using them in the future they have backed the shelving with glass to allow everyone to see these fabulous pieces of history. It's worth a peek.
