After the success of Easter's Thornbunny Trail, a group of local businesses are now organising another event to celebrate the contribution Thornbury makes to the wedding and celebration industry.
Beaux and Belles will comprise stalls in St Mary Centre and each stallholder will be a local business that offers a product or service affiliated with the wedding/celebration industry. In addition, we anticipate having a Wedding Trail people will follow during the day.
1 year old Seal Point Siamese, castrated + microchipped, has been missing since 9:30am Tuesday 6th June, Thornbury Morton way area.
It was very windy and raining all day, he may have wandered a little too far and couldn't find his way back. Unusual for him not to come home.
Just wondered if people could keep a look out for him please. May have taken shelter in a shed or garage. Any information would be much appreciated: 07963 426592 or
He has a shaved front leg from recent surgery, on a special diet so really need him home.
The independent housebuilder behind Thornbury’s Castle Court and Whitebridge Gardens developments, Newland Homes, has announced record figures for last financial year, achieving a turnover of £50 million, with profits before tax of £6.5million.
Last year Newland Homes completed the successful Castle Court development in Thornbury town centre, which was so well-received by local homebuyers that the first properties were sold using sealed bids prior to the site’s official launch. The Whitebridge Gardens development of 23 homes on the former Alexandra Workwear site at Midland Way continues apace with the last couple of homes remaining.
Thornbury Leisure Centre have launched a new strategy to persuade more adults to go swimming; the pool will now open Mondays and Tuesdays from 6.30am for lane swimming, so more of us can take a dip before going to work.
The gym will now also open earlier at 6.15am on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
Figures show that the number of adults swimming nationally has fallen by more than three quarters of a million in the past decade – almost 24%.
Thornbury Leisure Centre manager, Andy Robinson says: “We want to encourage as many people as possible to use our facilities, to enable members to live healthy and active lifestyles. We are evolving to meet new demands and maximise participation.”
The Alveston Singers would like to thank the appreciative and generous audiences who attended their first concerts with their new conductor, James Davies. The retiring collections at the concerts raised just over £1,244 for the chosen charities, The Julian Trust and Off the Record.
We look forward to welcoming many of you to our Christmas concerts. Details will be announced nearer December.
