Deputy Mayor Chris Davies
Monday 24th May saw the start of the Thornbury Walkathon, a new fundraising initiative to support local charities and good causes, organised by the Rotary Club of Thornbury. 2021 is the 50th anniversary of the Thornbury Rotary Club, during which time they have raised over £500,000 for good causes. Deputy Mayor Chris Davies was invited to attend the start of the Walkathon, held on the Mundy Playing Fields and taking place between 24th May and 6th June. Money will be raised to support Jigsaw Thornbury as the primary charity beneficiary.
Cllr Chris Davies was invited to attend the opening of the new town centre studio of Thornbury Radio. He said that the team behind the project, which saw hundreds of volunteer hours of work, should “feel rightly proud of [their] achievements”. The gathering was small, in line with COVID restrictions, but Chris “was really pleased and proud to be a part of it”.
2019-20 Mayor Angela Symonds was kindly invited by Grace Lodge to judge their exciting event, The Grace British Bake Off. It was a thoroughly enjoyable evening that Angela was delighted to attend and was very impressed by the standard of cake making. By kind permission of Grace Lodge, we are able to show you some photos of the fantastic entries into the competition that the residents made.
