The 2017 Olveston Annual Parish Assembly will be held in Olveston Parish Hall at 7.30pm on Tuesday 2 May 2017. You can read about it here in the Parish Clerk's latest article for Meeting Point.
Two days before the first elections for a Mayor for the new West of England Combined Authority (WECA), covering Bristol, S.Gloucestershire and Bath and N.E.Somerset, the guest speaker at the Olveston Parish Assembly will be Amanda Deeks, Chief Executive of South Gloucestershire Council. She will explain more about the new authority.
Besides that, the Parish Council will be reviewing the past year and looking forward to the coming one and it will also be launching its new Biodiversity Project.
If you live in Olveston, Old Down, Tockington, Lower Hazel, Awkley or Ingst, come along to your Parish's Annual Assembly. You'll be very welcome.
Good news! In January, there was a plea in Meeting Point for someone to revive the Olveston Playgroup for babies and toddlers - and now some local mums have done just that. So, if you have young children or grandchildren, you can go along and have a drink and a chat and meet others with small children... Click the picture for more details:
