Thornbury Town Council is pleased to announce that it will be offering a Warm Space facility at the Town Hall for the Over 60s this winter. In light of the hugely increased energy costs households are facing, the Warm Space will provide a safe, welcoming and warm space where those over 60 years of age may come to sit during the day.

The Exhibition Room on the first floor has been repurposed into our Warm Space, complete with comfortable seating. There is a television and DVD player, and the council is licenced to enable the playing of films – possibly even some Christmas classics! There are board games, playing cards and some books kindly donated by the Thornbury Lions book shop.

The Warm Space will open on Monday 31 October. Entrance to the Warm Space will be via the Over 60s Tea Room accessed to the side of the Town Hall building and the opening hours will be the same as those of the Tea Rooms (10.00am to 3.00pm Monday to Friday). There is a lift available to take visitors to the first floor where the Warm Space is located.

Due to the risk of spillages, anybody wishing to enjoy a cup of tea from the Over 60s Tea Room will need to return to the Tea Room downstairs for this, rather than carrying up to the Warm Space. Visitors to the Warm Space, however, will be welcome to bring their own food and drink to enjoy in the room.

Our thanks go out to the kind people who donated items to equip the Warm Space.
