FREE TREES FOR SCHOOLS AND COMMUNITIES

We want to make sure everybody in the UK has the chance to plant a tree. So we’re giving away hundreds of thousands of trees to schools and communities. Together, we’ll get millions more trees in the ground. More information here:

YOUTH URBIE BUS
A new mobile youth club bus is on the road in South Gloucestershire to help youth workers keep in contact with local youngsters. The vehicle is known as the Urbie – the Urban Vehicle for Information and Education. The Urbie will be used by the detached youth team whose work is funded by the council to get around the area and engage with young people.
Buying the bus was made possible by the support of a number of local organisations and businesses, including Merlin Housing Society, the Avon and Somerset Police Community Trust, engineering firm Renishaw, One Stop Carriers for Causes, Sodbury and Yate Business Association and Yate and District Rotary Club.
The Urbie Bus will be in Brockwell Park car park on Mondays from 3.45 pm to 5.45 pm for all teenagers and young people in Wick. Snacks and hot drinks will be provided.

It was beginning to look a lot like Christmas …..
Following up on a suggestion from a local resident for some festive cheer in the village, the Parish Council arranged for the pine tree by the village hall to be decorated with 1400 fairy lights and an unfortunate elf who landed upside down in the top of the tree!
Thank you to the volunteers, donors and councillors who made this happen and especially to the dozens of villagers who turned out on a chilly night for the grand illumination.
