Green Community Travel Update

We are able to collect prescriptions for passengers so if you need something collected please let us know. All of our drivers carry ID. And we could tell you the name of the driver that would be coming to the pharmacy for extra security. We will also drop on doorstep to minimise contact. We are going to charge delivery but would take this over the phone again to minimise contact etc.

We are hoping to get something regular set up shopping wise, it looks like we may have to work with some of the smaller local shops. If you do need help with anything like this please let us know so we can add you to our list. We are only getting essentials at present.

Virtual School Assembly

Janet Raven, who was head of Crossways School until a few years ago, is putting a daily school assembly/ collective worship for primary aged pupils in Thornbury live on her Facebook page (Janet Raven) at 14.00 each day. She suggests that it could give parents a little bit of a break for 20 mins.

Update from the Police

The police have stopped all Beat Surgeries and external forums, we are still conducting hi-visibility patrols, we have reduced the number of stations we have open and would encourage members of the public to contact us by email when it isn’t urgent. There is obviously a demand on us for clarity around certain things being implemented and again would encourage people to refer to the Government websites and NHS websites rather than us.

Benefice Churches Now Closed

A message from Revd. Joy Ludlow, Assistant Curate to the Benefice of Thornbury with Oldbury-on-Severn and Shepperdine: "In line with government restrictions and the advice of the Church of England the churches across our Benefice are now closed both for public worship and for private prayer. I am very sorry for this, and we hope to open again as soon as it is safe to do so. But, at this time, these restrictions are for the benefit and safety of our community members.
The parish office will now also be closed until further notice.
We will continue the practice of sending out a weekly newsletter towards the end of each week as long as it is possible.
If anyone wants, as ever, to be added to the prayers etc. in any given week please do feel free to email me, or feel free to email this account to make any contributions. Emails to the office address will not be read or replied to until they are up and running again.

C The World Update

While C The World's branches are closed, we have well and truly nailed the working from home thing and we now consider C The World as having 12 one-man satellite offices all over the South West!

It's been a rather manic few weeks to say the least and I'm so proud of the team who have gone above and beyond to look after our customers who have needed assistance recently.
We're also so thankful for wonderful reviews - they give a real boost to morale when times are tough.

Even though it may not be at your mind's fore, it is still possible to book holidays for the end of 2020 and into 2021. Airlines have extended booking windows and many operators are taking bookings for 2021 at reduced rates to keep business flowing.

So, if you would like book a holiday to look forward to once this has all died down, please do not hesitate to contact us. We're available as per normal opening hours.

We look forward to providing the level of service which you've come to expect from us, and I hope we can help you organise your next holiday soon.

Swan at Tytherington Update

We have made a decision to open for takeaways/deliveries due to demand on Friday and Saturday evenings 5pm-8pm and Sunday Lunch (Roast Only) 12pm-4pm.

We have no staff at the moment so it is just a family operation with us cooking, taking orders and delivering food so please be patient.

All orders need to be by phone and paid by card at the time of ordering (collection or delivery).

St Peter's Hospice Pause Events

It is with much regret that St Peter's Hospice Severnside Support Group advise of the suspension of all of our fund raising events until September at the earliest.
We will miss seeing you all this summer at our events, but are sure you will agree that this is the best course of action in the current climate.
If anyone bought a ticket for the Flower Demo upon receipt of the ticket the Town Hall (when open again) will be able to refund the cost.
Any donated raffle prizes of chocs/biscuits/sweets have been given to the Thornbury Food Bank organised by the Thornbury Baptist Church, so will be used.
Thank you for all your support in the past and we will very much look forward to seeing you all again in the future.
Stay safe and take care everyone.

Closing Charity Sale at Papilio

News regarding Papilio. After lots of thought we have made the difficult, but we believe right decision, to have tomorrow as Papilio home’s last day. It will be open 9am-3.30pm and then closed until it is safe for us to reopen. I am still working hard on developing a webshop so watch this space!
A significant reason for still opening tomorrow is that by approx 12.30pm we will have various ingredients (including eggs) from Papilio coffee available for sale. We will be selling these items (at less than normal prices) so that we can give all of these proceeds to Brain Tumour Support.

Support for Volunteer Groups

South Gloucestershire Council has issued a range of information and guidance materials to support the increasing number of informal and formal community groups that are springing up in neighbourhoods across the district to help those having to self-isolate.

The Community Aid South Glos pack has been distributed via town and parish Councils, who play a key role at the heart of their communities and are already helping to coordinate local responses. We are also seeing groups as small as residents in the same street starting a WhatsApp group so that neighbours can share offers of help and requests for assistance with shopping or picking up prescriptions for those who are required to self-isolate during the COVID-19 outbreak.

Neighbourhood Plan Update

Due to the current Covid-19 situation, we have made the decision to cancel all face to face consultation events regarding the Thornbury Neighbourhood Plan. This includes the events on 21st March in the Cossham Hall, 28th March in Tesco Thornbury and 18th April in St Mary’s Centre.

We have so far received some very positive responses and have been pleased with the number of people interacting with our exhibitions which have been displayed at the Library and Town Hall until their closure.

We have set up a mailing list to keep residents and businesses informed and are continuing to update interested parties on the work that we’re doing. We are particularly keen to hear from the younger generation who are yet to tell us whether our draft Plan has correctly reflected what they want Thornbury to be like in the future.

The draft plan and survey are still available via our website below, and there is further information available on our social media pages. The survey for your thoughts and feedback on the plan is open until 25th April and we are keen to hear your responses. Please do complete a survey so we can get the plan right for our Town.
