Your child was found smoking cigarettes at school. What do you do? Your child has obviously been drinking when you pick them up from a friend’s party. What is your reaction? At what age do you allow your child to try alcohol? How do you help your child to make good, safe choices in regard to drugs?
Exposure to drugs and alcohol is one of the major worries faced by parents today. ‘Drugs’ is a word that causes fear, confusion and denial.
We will be running a community based programme called How to Drug Proof Your Kids. This has been developed in conjunction with national charity Care for the Family and drugs education charity, Hope UK. It gives parents the information they need to encourage their children to have a responsible attitude... Read more >>

Thornbury Choral Society invites you to spend a summer evening captivated by the compositions of twentieth century French masters.
Faure’s Requiem – in his own words, “Dominated from beginning to end by a very human feeling of faith in eternal rest.”
Poulenc’s Gloria – a captivating mixture of solemnity and mischievous exuberance. However solemn the text, Poulenc’s sense of humour and love of life shine through.
Despite its title, Ravel’s – Pavane pour une Infante Defunte was never intended as a funeral lament, but instead a tender wistful dance melody for a Spanish princess.
The concert is under the musical direction of Steven Kings. He will be joined by soloists Llio Evans (soprano) and Meilir Jones (bass).
