Winterbourne Medieval Barn Trust), in conjunction with South Glos Council, has been awarded £936,600 from the Heritage Lottery Fund to repair and restore the buildings associated with the medieval barn. This major refurbishment project will secure the future of the iconic barn and the rest of the site as a community resource for heritage and education. The Trust itself has to raise £400,000 as part of this project, and while much of this has already been raised, further donations from businesses, organisations or individuals are still being sought before work can start early in 2019.
More information about the project, the history of the Barn, and the activities there can be found on the website below and in the events calendar on this site.
South Gloucestershire's Over 50’s Forum would like to hear from 50-70 years olds about what matters to them and how they would like to hear more about local campaigns and information.
The forum represents the voice, profile, needs and interests of people over 50 to statutory agencies locally and nationally. It campaigns for inclusion, justice, respect and recognition and provides regular opportunities for people to share their concerns and issues.

The Alveston Singers recently performed two concerts of ‘Songs From the Shows’ and would like to thank the audiences for their generous donations to the choir’s chosen charities, Cancer Research and Children’s Hospice South West. A total of £1137 was raised which will be added to donations at our next concerts and divided equally between the two charities.
Since the choir was founded in 1977 with the aim of enjoying singing and raising money for charity, many thousands of pounds have been raised due to the continued support of friends, families and the community. Our next concerts will be on Saturday December 8th and Tuesday December 11th when we look forward to welcoming our audiences once again.
