Thornbury based music charity Thornbury Musical Theatre Group is looking for help from a local scaffolding business:
"We have a valuable collection of costumes belonging to both the adult and junior groups, and they need to be brought together into a clean and dry environment to protect them. One day we will be able to use them again and bring high quality musical theatre back to Thornbury. We just need some scaffolding erected as the framework for a dry store and we will do the rest. Any offers of help please contact us. Thanks. Geoff 07855 300483”
