RESURFACING ROADWORKS AT RUDGEWAY ON A38 - MARCH/APRIL 2018
South Gloucestershire Council's Highways Department is advising that from Monday 26 March to Thursday 5 April, a section of the A38 (at the junction of the A38 Gloucester Road and Church Road at Rudgeway) will be closed at night from 8pm to 6am, while the surface of the road is planed off and a new surface laid down. Alternative routes will be signposted but delays around that area may occur. You can see more detail here. (Note: the start of the work has been postponed to 26 March because of bad weather conditions.)

OLVESTON PARISH HALL
We are looking for a number of like minded people to join the hall committee, who can contribute with the running of our community building. Why wait until the AGM in March when it may be too late, enquire now. Remember, we cannot operate without a committee, so it's up to you!
If you feel like getting involved please contact Geoff Chappell, Chair for further details.
Good news! Last January, there was a plea in Meeting Point for someone to revive the Olveston Playgroup for babies and toddlers - and now some local mums have done just that. So, if you have young children or grandchildren, you can go along and have a drink and a chat and meet others with small children... Click the picture for more details:
