If you're travelling by train over the August bank holiday, please check before you travel as Network Rail is installing part of a new signalling system for the Bristol area from 27-29 August.
Lines will be closed in both directions between Bristol Parkway and Swindon, Newport, Bristol Temple Meads, Gloucester and Severn Beach. Trains will be diverted and in some cases replacement bus services will be in operation. More information is available on the website below.
Alveston Flower Show will be going ahead on 3rd September.
2nd Alveston Scout Group have volunteered to help to run this year's Show, in conjunction with their own group BBQ, although it has now become more of a fun day as well.
Please note that the flower show element will be a much smaller affair than in previous years, and that since it is not being run by the Alveston Gardens Association it will not 'comply' with any RHS rules in terms of judging and classes.
However, everyone is welcome and it will be a lot of fun, with particular focus on encouraging children to participate. Click below to find out more.
