Normal life is on hold

A message from the Thornbury Voice: 

NORMAL life has been put on hold, as tough restrictions put in place to fight coronavirus affect every aspect of the community and economy.

From shops and schools to pubs and churches, places which are part of the everyday fabric of life in Thornbury have been closed, while long-planned events that form part of the area’s yearly calendar are postponed or cancelled.

But across the area people are coming together to offer support to neighbours in self-isolation, give advice and suggestions for things to do at home and simply cheer each other up.

Like other businesses, the Thornbury Voice has had to change in the face of the virus and the restrictions in place to try and slow its spread.

This month we have taken the difficult decision to ask our distributors not to go out on their rounds delivering the Thornbury Voice to homes. As most of our distribution points have also had to shut due to the coronavirus crisis, our April edition has not been printed.

However, the paper was finished before the lockdown was announced, so you can read it from cover to cover here.
We will continue to keep you up to date on the latest developments from the area on this website and via our social media channels.

You can read the latest news here.

We look forward to resuming door-to-door deliveries once the crisis has abated.
