Covid has sadly created a challenge for those in the wedding business and 'Micro - weddings' are fast becoming the obvious choice for 2020 and possibly 2021.
With that in mind Jo Preece of Jolies Fleurs, an independent florist, has gathered together a group of independent businesses in Thornbury who have pooled their creative flair, business acumen, time and experiences to come up with 'The Thornbury Wedding Collective', an exclusive group of like minded creatives. The Collective was born from a desire to support each other and encourage local brides to stay local, safe in the knowledge that their special day will still be the very best that they could wish for.
Jo says "We knew we could offer a superb wedding experience all within the BS35 postcode! Perfect for the Bride and Groom who want a bespoke, tailored first class wedding day."
Thornbury Musical Theatre Group are looking for your support with joining our friends of TMTG scheme.
There is a significant cost to running a musical theatre group that can not put on any shows, so to help towards the annual cost of scenery storage, costume storage and insurance, the group are currently looking towards alternative ways to help raise funds.
Should you be interested about our friends of TMTG scheme or wish to donate you can find out more information on our website below.
Why not treat someone with a fabulous book this Christmas – or even two!
1) ‘The Glorious Uncertainty. Salmon Fishing in the River Severn’ - charts the story of a local industry which flourished for many hundreds of years and rapidly disappeared within the last 50 years. The book was written by Nick Large who sadly died shortly before its publication. Nick studied the fishing methods for over 20 years and accumulated an extraordinary wealth of knowledge which is displayed within the book. He describes, in an engaging style, five different ways that commercial fishermen went about their trade. It is illustrated with over 100 stunning photographs.
2) ‘Thornbury Castle Revisited’ - tells the story of Thornbury Castle throughout its 500-year history, as well as the preceding 250 years as the Stafford Family accumulated sufficient wealth and high enough position in society to build a castle. Next year marks the 500th anniversary of the execution of its builder Edward Stafford, third Duke of Buckingham, by Henry VIII. The story of Stafford’s beheading and of the same fate that befell his father, a grandson and a great grandson are told within the book, along with accounts of others associated with the castle who met a similar grisly end.
Books are £20. Postage £5.00 First Class or £4.50 Second Class. NB: The museum is still closed, please email your enquiries below.
