Normal life is on hold 

A message from the Frome Valley 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 Winterbourne, Frampton Cotterell, Coalpit Heath and the surrounding area have been closed, while long-planned events that form part of the calendar, year-in, year-out, 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 Frome Valley Voice has had to change in the face of the virus and the restrictions in place to try and slow its spread.

Deliveries to homes have had to be suspended and, while copies are available from various pick-up points in Colapit Heath, Winterbourne and Frampton, many readers will not have been able to see a printed copy of the paper.

Our April edition can be read in full 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.
