In October 2015 our charity of the month is Thornbury and District Museum. Landlady Sandra says "I would like to thank everyone who has helped us raise £391 for the Thornbury Broncos in September. This month we are aiming for £300 - I don't know if we will do it, but we can only try - so everyone for just a £ and a few hours of your time you can help a worth while organisation in Thornbury...".

With few public toilet facilities in Thornbury, particularly in the evenings, The Swan has joined a Town Council partnership to provide clean, safe and accessible toilets in convenient locations in the town centre.
It means anyone can use The Swan's toilet facilities during normal opening hours, with no obligation to buy food or drink.
