The Avon Wildlife Trust is the largest membership-based wildlife organisation in the area, dedicated to promoting and protecting wildlife.
We are a group of volunteers who came together in summer 2014 with the aim of improving Frampton Cotterell by planting bulbs and flowers around our village
Our funding comes from grants, donations and our own fund raising activities. We have also received generous gifts from local businesses and residents who have been wholly supportive of our efforts.
We are always happy to welcome new volunteers to our group. Anyone wishing to join the group can contact us via our website.
Join in the fun! Help the Friends of Ridge Wood manage this much valued, wildlife-rich woodland. All are welcome - we work hard but have lots of parties!
A gardening group in the community garden in the grounds of St. Nicholas Church, Abbotswood, Yate. Anyone can join us on a Friday afternoon from 1.30pm.

We meet every first Wednesday of the month from September to June (with a break at Christmas) in the Watkins Room in the Old Grammar School Rooms, Chipping Sodbury at 7.30pm. Annual Subs are £15.00 and visitors pay £3. We have a varied programme of speakers and the occasional workshop.
We have a day’s coach trip each year to visit Open Gardens or other places of gardening interest. We support Sodbury in Bloom. We are a friendly club and by no means all expert gardeners. We enjoy sharing what knowledge we do have and welcome visitors to any of our meetings.
If anyone is interested in joining or just finding out about our club they are welcome to come to a meeting or phone Naomi Gathercole on 01454 314476.

We arrange walks each weekend as well as midweek evenings in the summer. The area and length of the walk varies greatly and members also arrange occasional weekends away.
We have regular social events such as skittles evenings, quiz nights, barbecues and the like, and there is always a Christmas dinner.
However, we are more than just a walking club. The Ramblers is a registered charity and one of its aims is to campaign to keep the footpath network open.
Southwold Ramblers is a local group of the Ramblers' Association (RA). The group is based in the Yate and Chipping Sodbury area of South Gloucestershire; however, our walks take us to many different locations.
The group organises rambles (approx 4-15 miles) on a regular programme throughout the year, during the week and at weekends.
Walking for Health has a programme of walks between 0.5 and 3 miles to suit a range of walking needs. These free walks are led by trained volunteers.
