Olveston news and events

Take the 28 day Stoptober challenge

During October, smokers in South Gloucestershire are being encouraged to take part in the 28-day stop smoking challenge - Stoptober.
We know that if you can stop smoking for 28 days you are five times more likely to stay smokefree, and Stoptober leads smokers through a detailed step-by-step programme to help them achieve this goal.
To get prepared, smokefree sessions will run throughout September at a location near you! For more info click below or call or call 01454 865502.


Be a Marie Curie volunteer

Marie Curie Cancer Care is looking for volunteers in Thornbury, Alveston and Olveston to look after collection tins in shops. The money generated will go towards high quality nursing to terminally ill patients in their own homes in the BS35 area.
To find out more, call 0117 9247 275 or email below.

A great year for the Leisure Centre

More of us are spending time and money at our Leisure Centre. Circadian Trust, which operates eight local Leisure Centres, says sales topped £10 million pounds in the last financial year.
The social enterprise says the number of paying visitors rose to 2.5m, thanks to dedicated staff, investment in facilities and using technology to improve customer experience.
