Welcome to the Thornbury Voice website

A message from the Thornbury Voice: 

CORONAVIRUS has taken a heavy toll on Thornbury.

Official figures show that the town has been one of the most touched by tragedy in South Gloucestershire.

But there has also been a huge outpouring of love and support for those who have had to isolate to avoid the virus, and those on the front line fighting it.

Hundreds of volunteers have come together to ensure no-one in their neighbourhood goes hungry.

The lockdown has changed the way people interact and even the look of our streets, with the pedestrianisation of Thornbury High Street the most striking attempt to make social distancing work.

The Thornbury Voice has also been impacted by the virus. The closure of many of our advertisers and rule changes for our deliverers left us unable to bring our paper to you for three months.

Having continued to bring you the news on our website, now we are back in print.

While there are too many to recognise them all on our pages, we salute everyone, from NHS staff and shop workers to recycling crews and phone buddies, who has helped keep life going through lockdown.

You can read the latest news here.

You can also find the Thornbury Voice magazine online here.
