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

Older villagers will have many memories of Dora Ross, as she lived in Congresbury for the majority of her long life, and died only a week before her 90th birthday.
More than 25 supporters of Congresbury Residents Action Group (CRAG) turned up for the official hearing into the Strongvox scheme to build 24 houses on land off Brinsea Road.

Many Congresbury villagers were shocked to learn of the sudden death of Edith Wilson, at the age of 82, after only a short illness.
Despite her small stature, Edith was a vibrant and engaging personality, involved in many aspects of village life, always ready to volunteer when help was requested, and a loyal and caring friend.
WOULD YOU LIKE TO HELP ON YACWAG’S RESERVES THIS AUTUMN AND WINTER?
YACWAG would be glad of some new volunteers on conservation projects this season. Helping on a work party is a great way to get to know other people and also to visit YACWAG reserves. These are often the occasions on which new wildlife sightings are made. Contact Win Lowman 01934 833596 email@example.com
What a great event we had today. The sun shone and we were very busy the whole morning with a jolly crowd enjoying a full English breakfast. There were cakes, jams and cards for sale, a guess the cake competition and a raffle. Thank you to all who contributed either by helping or by dining. A special thanks to the organiser, Kath Kemplay, who did a brilliant job taking over from the wonderful Julie Gosling this year. We raised £1,455 for Hospicecare, well done!
Remember to take all your unwanted clothes and items to the Hospicecare shop in Broad Street, and have a look for something nice while you are there.

The group of ladies used wrapping paper, music scores, maps and a range of other materials to make their beads which can then be glazed and made into necklaces, bracelets or earrings. The session just flew by! Read more
