Wotton Area Mutual Aid Boxes

NO-ONE SHOULD GO HUNGRY! A lady self- isolating, unable to shop - with no family or friends to help - left stuck without essential items. Someone shielding, who was receiving government food parcels and now anxious that this help will be stopped. A person who had been furloughed and the company couldn’t afford to pay any extra. A mother of two who had regularly been skipping her own meals so there was enough for her children. This crisis continues to affect us. Our WAMA food boxes of essential items are available to anyone who needs one.
Click below for more details of how to order one, or call the WAMA number 07545 042794.

Green Community Travel Update

Please do get in touch if you have any worries or concerns, or even just fancy a chat! We’re all still working from home at the moment but the buses are still on the road. The staff have all gone above and beyond to make sure we can still run the transport and help people that need us.
We’ve also been helping South Glos with the delivery of emergency food parcels, we’ve been able to do that 5 days a week for a couple of months now, as well as collecting and dropping off prescriptions for people and shopping for those that don’t have family nearby or a good support network. See our website below for updates.

Online Library Services Extended

We can now access thousands of local and national newspapers free of charge through our online library resources.

They now offer the majority of national and local papers in addition to a range of international titles.

During the coronavirus pandemic there has been a significant increase in the number of people accessing online library resources, so they have been increased and expanded with the help on a grant of £1,000 from the Arts Council England.

South Gloucestershire Libraries also offer ebooks, eaudiobooks, digital magazines and eComics.

Sort It Centres Accept All Waste

After successfully re-opening three of our Sort It recycling centres at Thornbury and Yate last weekend, we are now in a position to accept a full range of waste at both sites from Thursday 21 May.

Some restrictions around the type of waste that could be disposed of were in place so we could implement essential social distancing measures and evaluate how efficiently the sites were operating with the measures in place.

With residents listening to advice around only using the sites if absolutely necessary, it now means we can return to accepting our normal range of waste and we will continue to offer extended opening hours until further notice: 6am to 6pm, 7 days a week, including Bank Holiday Monday 25 May.

Red Door's New Website

Red Door Coaching and Training are very pleased that their new website is live! We have updated our look to reflect how Red Door has progressed over the last few years. We are also sharing what we can do for our clients in an easier to access, clearer format.
This period of lockdown has made us make many changes to how we are working. For the first time we are running online workshops, successfully delivering training remotely to teams working from their homes.
Our experience of delivering workshops that focus on Managing Remote Teams, Managing by Outcomes, Dealing with Stress and Resilience have been valuable to our business in these different times.
While we have been getting used to working from home we are equally looking forward to stepping back into the wider world.
