Preparations are well underway for this year’s Be Proud Awards, organised jointly by the Constabulary and the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner.
The Be Proud Awards aim to highlight the very best of Avon and Somerset Constabulary, acknowledging and rewarding our dedicated officers, staff and volunteers for all their hard work in ensuring the communities of Avon and Somerset are safe and feel safe.
Last year’s awards saw 22 individuals and five teams recognised for their efforts and hard work in fighting crime, supporting victims and bringing offenders to justice. For full details click here
Avon & Somerset Police have set up a new support group and are looking for volunteers.
As a Volunteer in a Circle of Support and Accountability (‘Circle’), you’ll make an important contribution to preventing sexual abuse by helping reduce the risk of further sexual harm by a known perpetrator.
A Circle is a small group of carefully trained and selected Volunteers who meet regularly with an individual who has been convicted of sexual offences (or with harmful sexual behaviour). Volunteers hold the individual to account for their behaviour and support their safe reintegration into the community. They work closely with the responsible statutory organisations. Read more

Everyone is welcome
Congresbury Scouts love to be outdoors and do a lot of hiking and camping. Scouts grow very fast, and for some families, it’s a real struggle to keep them in suitable warm clothing and footwear for activities. Leaders have had a number of occasions when young people have not been able to enjoy their outdoor activities just because they have been too cold and wet. We have decided to address this by setting up a kit exchange within the group, so that outdoor gear can be passed down to those who don’t have enough of their own.
To get this ball rolling, we need to assemble a reasonable stock of various sizes that are available for exchange. We are looking for waterproof jackets, trousers, gloves and gaiters especially, and for walking boots in various sizes.
If anyone has that sort of stuff hanging around outgrown or unloved, we would love to hear from you.
