Memorial Woodlands offers families the chance to say a personal, appropriate farewell in the beautiful surroundings of our woodland cemetery, situated in a peaceful valley just outside Thornbury.
Our onsite chapel and reception rooms will be yours for the day to hold whatever kind of service you wish; traditional, ecological, religious or humanist.
If you are arranging a funeral now or making plans for the future, please do come to see our beautiful grounds for yourself and learn about our range of services, funeral plans and woodland memorials. We’ll give you all the time, support and advice you need.

A campaign against plans to build 3000 houses in North Yate.
The development is proposed to include 3000 new homes and 9 hectares of light industry. Campaigners fear this will have a significant impact not only on Brimsham Park but also the town of Yate and the countryside as a whole. Click below to find out more...

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!
The Friends group was formed in 1987 when there was a real threat that the Common would be built on.
The Friends saved the Common, and it is now a safe haven for many species of birds, mammals and insects, and is over 200 acres in size.

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.
Local campaigns include transport, planning, recycling, wildlife and nuclear power.
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.
The warmth and exhilaration of flower rich meadows, secretive ancient woodlands and wooded grassland plateaux are all found on a visit to Wapley Bushes Local Nature Reserve to the south of Yate.
