Beer and Music Festival Cancelled

Yate & District Rotary Club are very sorry to have to announce that our 2020 (and what would have been our 25th) Beer and Music Festival - 10 & 11 July - is cancelled due to the alarming progress of the worldwide Covid-19 outbreak.

It is now clear that such a large public event cannot be staged this summer, so we are looking forward to July 2021 when we hope to be celebrating a TRULY MAGNIFICENT 25TH ANNIVERSARY FESTIVAL!

COVID-19 Help and Support

COVID-19 Help, Support And Volunteering South Glos and Bristol now have a web page setup with links and information to hopefully help people. This web page is more South Glos area focused rather than local area focused.

Church at Home for Families

During this time when we are unable to meet together as one family, it would be good if we could continue to worship in our own family groups at home. Click below to find a resource produced by Bristol Diocese to help us to do this. A new one will be produced each week so try this and let us know how it went. Our church buildings may be closed, but church is not closed!

NGS Gardens to Close

In light of events unfolding over the weekend in relation to Coronavirus (COVID-19) the Trustees of the National Garden Scheme have taken the difficult decision to ask all the charity’s garden owners not to open their gardens until further notice.

Yate Re-engage say Make a Call

A message from Barbara Potter: I’m a coordinator/driver for one of the Yate Re-engage (formerly Contact the Elderly) groups. Normally, each month several drivers collect elderly, isolated people and we take them to a host’s home for a party, our group have lunch, other groups have tea, but whatever the time it’s a wonderful social event. Obviously these parties cannot take place at present, so I’ve been ringing round my guests, making sure everyone is OK and would they like a regular phone call as some of my hosts have offered to ring guests for a friendly chat. I’m surprised at how guests jump at this opportunity for outside contact and it’s made me realise for someone stuck at home alone, all day, just how long a day can be. My oldest guest is 98, partially sighted and is very limited in what she can do, so a half hour on the phone is truly appreciated. So, can I encourage everyone who knows someone who lives alone to make a phone call, do it when there’s time to sit down and relax, then chat about what they’ve watched on TV, what they’ve done in the garden, how empty the supermarket is, anything and everything. You may find you’re just listening, but do reach out. Thank you.

Green Community Travel Update

We are able to collect prescriptions for passengers so if you need something collected please let us know. All of our drivers carry ID. And we could tell you the name of the driver that would be coming to the pharmacy for extra security. We will also drop on doorstep to minimise contact. We are going to charge delivery but would take this over the phone again to minimise contact etc.

We are hoping to get something regular set up shopping wise, it looks like we may have to work with some of the smaller local shops. If you do need help with anything like this please let us know so we can add you to our list. We are only getting essentials at present.

Update from the Police

The police have stopped all Beat Surgeries and external forums, we are still conducting hi-visibility patrols, we have reduced the number of stations we have open and would encourage members of the public to contact us by email when it isn’t urgent. There is obviously a demand on us for clarity around certain things being implemented and again would encourage people to refer to the Government websites and NHS websites rather than us.

Update from Yate Parish

· All our church buildings are now closed and the heating has been turned off to minimise costs.

· The Home Page of our website continues to give the latest Coronavirus update. This remains our principal way of communicating with the Parish, together with our Facebook page. We aim to add content to this page on a daily basis and it will also provide a link to recorded services. The website also contains a link to the Facebook page which you can access regardless of whether you are a Facebook user or not.

· We will continue to live-stream a service every Sunday morning from one of our homes. I have asked Revd. Hywel Snook to lead this Sunday but others will take the lead in coming weeks as we learn the procedure for doing it.

Wildlife & Countryside Events

The Southwold Local Group of Avon Wildlife Trust have now received formal precautionary advice from both South Gloucestershire Council and Dodington Parish Council not to be proceed with any outdoor workdays and other events.

We are fully complying with that advice to help to protect all our valued helpers who contribute so much to the nature areas of Yate, Dodington and Chipping Sodbury.

Swan at Tytherington Update

We have made a decision to open for takeaways/deliveries due to demand on Friday and Saturday evenings 5pm-8pm and Sunday Lunch (Roast Only) 12pm-4pm.

We have no staff at the moment so it is just a family operation with us cooking, taking orders and delivering food so please be patient.

All orders need to be by phone and paid by card at the time of ordering (collection or delivery).

Advice from Yate Town Council

With a lot of information being shared on social media, Yate Town Council have created a dedicated page on their website where you can find advice, information and guidance regarding COVID-19 plus updates from Yate Town Council:

Razzamataz Closing for Now...

We are so sorry to announce that Razzamataz Bristol North will be closing with immediate effect. We are hoping that we will be able to resume as soon as possible. An email will be sent to all our customers with full and further details later today. Anyone who hasn't received our emails please get in touch and make sure we have your correct contact information.

We cannot overstate the importance and great value we hold in our parents, guardians, students and staff for their continuing support. We would fail to exist without this support.

To Myself and my Staff Razzamataz is more than just a job, we love each and every student and we will continue to be there if anyone needs us.

To our Parents, students and staff please take great care in this testing, uncertain and stressful time; there is nothing more important than health and we hope to welcome our amazing students back to razz as soon as possible!


Support for Volunteer Groups

South Gloucestershire Council has issued a range of information and guidance materials to support the increasing number of informal and formal community groups that are springing up in neighbourhoods across the district to help those having to self-isolate.

The Community Aid South Glos pack has been distributed via town and parish Councils, who play a key role at the heart of their communities and are already helping to coordinate local responses. We are also seeing groups as small as residents in the same street starting a WhatsApp group so that neighbours can share offers of help and requests for assistance with shopping or picking up prescriptions for those who are required to self-isolate during the COVID-19 outbreak.

COVID-19 Help and Support

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic Yate Town Council is joining forces with community group Yate and Sodbury COVID-19 Help and Support, to provide help to our most vulnerable in isolation. The group are pooling resources, delivering leaflets to houses to offer support in any manner, and posting useful advice on social media. The group are looking for volunteers to help them. If anyone can help, click below to get in touch.

Fruit & Veg Box Home Deliveries

Due to restrictions imposed with the COVID-19 outbreak Jimmy Deane's have initiated a new delivery service to selected local areas. For more info and to order please see their online shop!
