A message from Cromhall's Ashley Alexander: "Before this worldwide pandemic I was setting up my IT and comms business but getting started has taken a serious setback with the economy grinding to a halt.
I am still on hand and willing to help others locally. If you are experiencing any technical issues or losing broadband connection due to the whole country now maximising communication through social platforms while we cannot visit family or friends.
I would like to help people and build customer relationships for the future. For anybody who is vulnerable or if you have family members you are struggling to connect with - everything will be free, including general advice. Please email me below.
We may be stuck indoors but you can still complete your weekly workouts. Access FREE online Les Mills classes thanks to your local Active Centre... including mindful meditation, Body Combat and children’s classes.

A message from Tortworth Estate: "Please adhere to the signs and online notices stating that Tortworth Lake is CLOSED for the foreseeable future at all times. We have taken this move to prevent people coming into too close a contact directly and by using gates etc. There is no public right of way around there anyway, including in the woods above the lake, and we feel it is a shame we have to request this, as we have made enough signs up, and it is known that is only open the first Sunday of the month Feb-Oct, yet a bit like with National Parks and other outdoor spaces people feel they can just use it for their leisure. Which with the lake is trespassing anyway, when not on the given Sundays.
We are sorry to have to be so firm but we are trying to promote the Government’s advice, and help stop the spread of the virus."
In light of events unfolding over the weekend in relation to Coronavirus (COVID-19) the Trustees of the National Garden Scheme have taken the difficult decision to ask all the charity’s garden owners not to open their gardens until further notice.
We are able to collect prescriptions for passengers so if you need something collected please let us know. All of our drivers carry ID. And we could tell you the name of the driver that would be coming to the pharmacy for extra security. We will also drop on doorstep to minimise contact. We are going to charge delivery but would take this over the phone again to minimise contact etc.
We are hoping to get something regular set up shopping wise, it looks like we may have to work with some of the smaller local shops. If you do need help with anything like this please let us know so we can add you to our list. We are only getting essentials at present.
The police have stopped all Beat Surgeries and external forums, we are still conducting hi-visibility patrols, we have reduced the number of stations we have open and would encourage members of the public to contact us by email when it isn’t urgent. There is obviously a demand on us for clarity around certain things being implemented and again would encourage people to refer to the Government websites and NHS websites rather than us.
