New twist as historic house set to be sold at auction From Page 1 for 10 serviced apartments in the new building - but sell Conygre House. The house is now up for auction later this month at a guide price of £385,000. Planning permission is in place for seven flats in Conygre House but the auction information indicates there may be scope to increase this to nine. It is estimated these flats could sell in a range of prices from £155,000 to £235,000. Developer Ashley Rigg said: "We've not the changed the overall plan. Our plan is still to have serviced apartments on the new section of the site but very disappointingly we can't now afford to develop both Conygre House and the new build. "The house is being sold as

told that the developers were considering rendering the building - for insulation purposes. Councillors said they had understood the visual integrity of the building would be preserved. The building, at the bottom of Conygre Road near the junction with Filton Avenue, is a

centuries-old former farmhouse and has been the subject of debate for several years. Owners South Glos Council decided to sell the building in 2005 and there were hopes in 2013 that a counselling organisation would take it over. That deal fell through, leaving the building and gardens with an uncertain future until developers Bristol Property Partnership bought the building and site. Back in 2013, Filton residents packed into a meeting of South Glos Council at which they persuaded councillors not to sell the building off for possible demolition. At the time councillors voted unanimously to sell the landmark house to counselling organisation Network Counselling for £250,000 - the lower of two bids on the table.

Lopresti reselected after 'vicious smears' by Rebecca Day Jack Lopresti has been reeselected as the Tory candidate for Filton and Bradley Stoke in the General Election following what he described as a “vicious smear campaign”. Mr Lopresti’s candidacy was left in doubt after calls were made in a letter written by an anonymous sender for Conservative members to deselect him. But he was readopted to stand as the Conservative candidate for Filton and Bradley Stoke at a local association selection meeting of party members on April 28. Mr Lopresti took to Twitter to announce the news. He said: “A fantastic honour to be re-adopted to contest Filton & Bradley Stoke as the Conservative candidate in the general election.” In a statement released before

the meeting, Mr Lopresti said: "For the last month my family and I have been subject to a vicious smear campaign with racist overtones. “Since the day after my son

Clifford was born, my office has been bombarded with bogus calls from people purporting to be national journalists and with dark threats of illegally taped conversations. “There have clearly been illegal data breaches where private parliamentary emails have been accessed and handed to the media. “The local Conservative party has potentially also had a data breach. I have informed the police and will expect them to carry out a full investigation. “I have had many messages of support from party members and lots of constituents and I am sure that this recent attempt to destroy my character and reputation has been orchestrated by a small handful of people. "This may include a former very bitter party member and possibly a disgruntled employee.

"I can only think that this is as a result of personal choices I have made in my private life, which some may not have approved. I love my fiance Andrea and am extremely proud of my young son Clifford and nobody will ever be able to change that." Dr Barbara Lewis, federation chair of Bristol and South Gloucestershire Conservatives, said: “Jack’s tireless work for the area and his ambitious plans for the next five years make him the best candidate for the job.” As reported in the Bristol Post, the letter circulated to Tory party members stated that there were many who felt Mr Lopresti was not “representing the constituency in a very good way”, and that there were others who should be given a chance. The seat has been held by Mr Lopresti since 2010.

School's thanks to parents fighting Education in South Gloucestershire is facing a double challenge. Secondary schools are underperforming and must make rapid improvements - while at the same time managing the huge budget pressures affecting schools at all levels. Leaders, teachers, parents and councillors are rising up to tackle the crisis. Linda Tanner reports Abbeywood Community School has expressed its gratitude for a new parent-led campaign which is calling on the government for improved funding. More than 300 people turned out for a public meeting in Hambrook to launch the Fair Funding for all Schools - South Glos campaign and hundreds more have signed a petition calling for action. Abbeywood Community School, which is currently consulting with staff about savings that need to be made, says that it is grateful for the support and passion of the local community.

The Olympus Academy Trust, which runs Abbeywood and Bradley Stoke community schools, made headlines in February after its CEO Dave Baker said the trust was at “crisis point” and called on parents for “regular financial contributions”. Dave Howe, headteacher at Abbeywood Community School, said: "We are consulting with our staff about making the financial savings required of us next year and have started by seeking voluntary solutions. “Our decision-making process is based on ensuring our students are able to succeed in their learning and be safe

and supported in school. We are protecting teaching in core subjects and seeking efficiencies at every level of our organisation - including senior management, teaching and support staff. “We continue to focus on having the very best teachers working with our students in class every day, delivering a broad and rich curriculum. “I am so proud of our staff who continue to focus on teaching our students with enthusiasm every day despite the uncertainty we face as a profession. “We are grateful for the

support of the parent-led campaign and the passion and determination of our school community to ensure that we continue to offer the quality of education that our young people deserve." The Fair Funding for all Schools – South Glos was launched at the Holiday Inn in Hambrook on April 6 in response to the financial pressures facing schools across the area. But doesn’t the Government keep telling us that it is spending more on education than ever? Yes, that’s true, Kevin Courtney, general secretary of

Another reported: "I was almost hit by a motorcycle on the path outside McColls on Filton Ave a while back. The young lad started at Costcutter then drove all along the path." A police spokesman said: "If the vehicle is then found being used in anti-social behaviour again it can be seized by police.

This power has been used by police locally. “We need people to give us as much information as possible, including descriptions of the vehicles and riders, registration numbers if seen and direction of travel. Report it either through www. avonandsomerset.police.uk/ contact, or by calling 101. "If residents are concerned that someone could be hurt as a result of the way mopeds are being driven, call 999."

back in face of funding crisis the National Union of Teachers, told the meeting - but only because there are more schools and more children than before. Individually, almost all schools are facing a squeeze on their budgets that is going to get worse, even before the introduction of the proposed new National Funding Formula in April 2018. Increased National Insurance and pension contributions, wage rises and the apprenticeship levy mean that in real terms, schools are set to have about eight per cent less money, according to the National Audit Office. These constraints will force them to make tough choices: cutting jobs, reducing the curriculum and stopping trips and after-school clubs. A website set up by the NUT and other unions - schoolcuts. org - gives predictions for every school in England and the budget crisis each could face by 2020 based on Department for Education figures. It is these forecasts that have provoked anger around the country. Feelings are running particularly high in South Gloucestershire, which has historically been one of the worst funded local authorities in the country. Schools in the district receive per-pupil funding that is several hundred pounds below that for Bristol, for example. The National Funding Formula was supposed to iron out those differences, but campaigners say 98 per cent of children across the land will be

worse off. Some Conservative MPs are putting pressure on Ministers to think again, and their views are shared by Tory leaders on South Gloucestershire Council. That’s why Fair Funding for all Schools is urging parents, teachers and governors to lobby their local MPs - none of whom has yet spoken out against the formula - to persuade them to join the protest. Local councillor Adam Monk said councillors should not underestimate the strength of public anger about the underfunding of schools.

Village Easter fun event set to be first of many It was another cracking community event for residents in Cheswick Village as they gathered for a day of Easter celebrations. The event, on April 8, was funded thanks to a collaboration between Carly Dawson, Cheswick committee member, and Anne Maddox, community champion at Asda Filton. In the morning, local children enjoyed Easter bonnet decorating at Boston Tea Party, and supported by volunteers from Asda and local residents. Kirsty Edwards from the Cheswick committee brought her fantastic craft skills to the table and supplied card hats and

decorations for the children. Wallscourt Farm Academy hosted the Easter disco with Stacey from Mobile Vibes putting on an array of party games and the Easter bonnet parade. There was a lovely selection of cakes provided by Cheswick residents and Cake My Day. Prizes were given to four children for their bonnets, two of which were kindly donated by Freedog Urban Activity Centre and At-Bristol. Asda staff and local residents volunteered to help supervise and give out chocolate Easter bunnies to the children on their way home. The day culminated with a

pub quiz at Boston Tea Party, where residents competed to win a barista session at the café, cakes, and wine donated by the committee. There was also a hugely popular raffle on the night to help resident Sarah Greenwood raise funds for a volunteering trip to build a school in Africa. Cheswick committee member, Holly Stowell, said: “The committee have received lots of messages online and emails from residents telling us that they and their children have had a great day and they’re looking forward to what we do next. “Thanks to the relationship built between the committee and

Asda by Carly and Anne we’ve had a successful Easter and are now looking at what we will do in the summer, Halloween and Christmas. “Our aim through these events is to bolster the strong community spirit that exists within Cheswick and getting everyone out and about and getting to know their neighbours. As a group, members and volunteers, we’re really happy and proud to be helping our community.” The committee is now busy raising money for its annual Christmas event and has a token box in Asda Filton’s foyer to help generate the funds.

Driverless cars to be tested on Filton Airfield

Britain will launch its first driverless vehicle trial in Filton. Thanks to a £4.2 million Government grant, the trial, which will take place as a part of the development of Filton Airfield, will "test the reliability and operation of 'connected driverless vehicles' to move people around a specific area." CAPRI, which is an automated vehicle consortium, is conducting the trial. Some of the members of the consortium include the South Gloucestershire Council, UWE and the University of Bristol. If everything goes well with the trial, these vehicles, also referred to as pods, will be used to transport anyone that is visiting the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in east London, and the vehicles could possibly be licensed for use in other places. “The race for developing

ensure the UK is at the forefront of this revolution,” says Business secretary Greg Clark. “We have an excellent record in innovation in the UK and through our industrial strategy, we will build on our strengths so the UK auto sector remains world-leading. That is why we have announced support today for CAPRI as schemes like these will be key to turning research and development into anchoring future production.” The ultimate goal is for the vehicles to be reliable enough to use to transport people around a variety of locations, including airports, hospitals and shopping and tourist centres. After the trial at Filton, a final public trial will see the service interact with traffic control systems as a part of a test on a network of roads around the Olympic Park in London.

New head is appointed for Orchard School A successful north Bristol secondary school announced its new head teacher after current head Dr Helen Holman announced her retirement from the role earlier this year. The new head teacher will be Julia Hinchliffe, currently the Deputy Principal at Oasis Academy Brightstowe in Shirehampton, and previously Assistant Principal at Bristol Metropolitan Academy in Fishponds. She will take over the role in September. Dr Holman has overseen a period of remarkable success for the Horfield school which has seen student growth, best ever exam success and an Ofsted rating of ‘Good’ in the past three years. She said: “It has been a privilege to have been Headteacher of OSB and I will miss every aspect of my work here I know how much Julia wanted this job and how excited she is to be leading it to outstanding outcomes. I know too that she has a talented team of students and staff and the positive support of the wider community who will be there to support her all the way. Mrs Hinchliffe said she was excited about the new role, with the school making such good progress. She said: “Orchard School Bristol is a fantastic school with high quality staff, friendly students and a vibrant learning environment. Dr Holman has built a remarkable school, with calm behaviour, best ever exam success and an Ofsted rating of ‘Good’. It is a huge privilege to be appointed head teacher and I am excited to be leading the school to an even brighter future from September. When she announced her retirement, Dr Holman said: “We have a team of exceptional professionals amongst the whole staff; the highest calibre

of leaders, teaching staff and a support staff who give us all such crucial backing. I have no doubt when I say that our teachers have developed and refined teaching and learning best practice which would be the envy of many schools across the city. “This was reflected in our latest Ofsted report and we have further ‘upped our game’ with the hugely successful ‘Ready to Learn’ system which has produced a cultural revolution in the classroom and beyond. This year, Orchard School has introduced its revolutionary Ready to Learn system which is producing remarkable results in the classroom, with learning maximised and behaviour problems reduced to a minimum. The school, part of the Trust in Learning chain of academies, has also recently announced a tie-up with local primary schools, including Horfield CofE, Filton Avenue and Bishop Road to create a new programme of teaching Latin.

Snap election .. but who will win trust of voters this time?

www.filtonvoice.co.uk

by Rebecca Day Filton residents are contemplating which box to cross on the ballot sheet following the Prime Minister’s shock announcement of an early general election. Theresa May’s call for a snap election has been approved by MPs, and now residents will be going to the polls on June 8 to vote for their preferred parliamentary candidate. Incumbent MP for Filton and Bradley Stoke Jack Lopresti will be standing for election although his candidacy was in the balance after calls were made by an anonymous person for Conservative members to deselect him. See Page 3 The Liberal Democrats have put forward Eva Fielding – a former mechanical and electrical engineer who now works for Gloucestershire County Council. The Labour candidate was expected to be confirmed as Naomi Rylatt, a former Bristol city councillor for Hartcliffe. Current predictions on the respected Electoral Calculus website indicate that the Conservatives have an 88 percent chance of winning the seat. Labour has a seven per cent chance, Lib Dems four per cent, and UKIP one per cent. For some residents, an MP who would pledge to stop landlords from purchasing large family homes and letting them out to students would get their vote. Resident Stephen Clarke says that he would support any candidate who makes this promise. “[This] would be the number one thing to at least try to do,” he told the Filtonvoice. “Number two being to try and

stop giving planning permission if possible for yet more eateries Filton clearly doesn't need. Whoever will try this, I'd gladly give them my support.” Liz Bartlett added: “One of the root causes of the student lets is that it's very profitable to buy houses to rent out at the moment. Whichever party will massively tax the people profiting from this will increase the number of houses available to buy, lessening the housing crisis. I don't know any party's specific policy on that but I doubt the Conservatives will go in for taxing the greedy people. “I would be voting Lib Dem but unfortunately I may vote tactically and vote for Labour. I hate this current system that forces tactical voting, and wish Lib Dems and Labour would team up for this election.” Both remain and leave voters say that Brexit is their motivation.

Young footballer teams up again to give kit to children in African country More children from The Gambia have benefited from the donation of football kit donated by Filton's St Vallier football team. Last year we reported how St Vallier player nine-year-old Omar Saho, along with his dad Kalifa, hand delivered the items, which included shirts, shorts and boots, to the pupils of Gunjur Kulukochi Community preschool. Now they have donated more kit - two full sets - to Omar Bunjeng Memorial School and although Omar and his dad Kalifa could not be there in person this time, Kalifa's brother Iamin was present to hand over the kit.

Youth centre celebrates its 50th Families in Filton joined Filton charity FACE in celebrating the 50th birthday of their base at St Andrews Methodist Youth Centre in Elm Park this spring by taking part in a Golden Egg Trail and a Celebration weekend. The youth centre was originally built as a memorial to local young people and families who were killed in a minibus crash in October 1962. The charity FACE is now carrying on the legacy of great work amongst young people and families in Filton. The Golden Egg Trail saw local shops, schools, surgeries, and community venues getting involved in displaying 50 Golden Eggs across Filton during the month leading up to the celebration weekend. Everyone who completed the trail got a button badge and there was a grand draw at the event for a great Easter Prize Hamper –

School kids get to explore private jets at Bristol Airport Not many people can say they’ve had exclusive behind-the-scenes access at Bristol Airport, but that’s exactly what 30 Airbus Foundation Flying Challenge students got. Last week they visited the Airport as part of their ‘Aim High’ week with fly2help. Whilst there they learnt about everything from customer services to being a pilot, embarked in a simulated flying lesson at Bristol and Wessex Flying Club and explored the corporate jets at Centreline. Their adventure did not stop there. They also learned about propulsion on a visit to the Aero engine assembly lines at Rolls-Royce, found out what’s in store for an aerospace apprentice at the City of Bristol College and met the RAF at the Jet Age Museum. One participant said: “I love airplanes. I think they are beautiful and amazing machines. “I could just sit in the airport all day, every day and watch them take off and land without getting bored. I would love to work around them every day.” The week forms the next stage of the Airbus Foundation Flying Challenge which aims to inspire young people to develop confidence, self-esteem and a belief in themselves that will motivate them to continue with, and succeed in, their education. The

By the time they graduate from the programme, participants will have undertaken a wide range of specialist experiences, worked with committed employee mentors, completed a skills portfolio and worked towards a nationally recognised qualification. They will also receive a flying lesson and gain accredited Industrial Cadets gold award. Left, Airbus mentor Dave explaining the wing structure to one of the Flying Challenge students

Firm vies for top rank in employer awards Airbus supports the UK military not only by supplying worldleading aircraft like the A330 Voyager and the A400M, but also by helping staff who volunteer as reservists serve their country. As a signatory of the Armed Forces Covenant since 2015, the company grants employees additional paid leave to participate in annual training and mobilisation activities and is also a long term advocate of national military-friendly initiatives, such as Armed Forces and Reserves days. Now Airbus is submitting an entry for the Defence Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS), which rewards businesses that demonstrate a commitment to supporting our nation’s armed forces. Neil Loftus, an employee at the Airbus plant in Filton, volunteers as a reserve in the Royal Monmouthshire Royal

Engineers regiment. “I joined the Army Reserve because I wanted to get experiences and skills that I couldn’t readily get in my day job,” Neil explains. “As a result I’ve got better at leadership, problem solving and performing practical tasks, all skills that I can re-apply in the workplace. Airbus supports me by giving me time off to get the training I need and providing clear guidelines on its policies surrounding reservist duties.” Last year, Airbus piloted a Military Work Experience programme which offers current service members the opportunity to spend a month working in a civilian environment before leaving the armed forces, helping them readjust to life outside the military. The ERS is open to businesses of all sizes that have signed up to the Armed Forces Covenant, which promises to

David is community champion Airbus has awarded employee David Edgecumbe the title of “Community Champion” at the Filton site in recognition of a lifetime of volunteering and charity work. The Airbus Community Champions Awards celebrate the outstanding work Airbus employees carry out in their own time to support local community groups and charities. Employees are asked to nominate their fellow colleagues who in their eyes are the ‘unsung’ heroes of the company. Eight nominations were shortlisted for the award, but David impressed the selection panel by his motivation, dedication and the sheer volume of activities he is involved in. Each runner-up received £75 for a charity of their choice, with David winning £500 which he has chosen to split between Crohn’s and Colitis UK and the Scouts Association. David is currently assistant

Scout Leader for 37th Kingswood Scouts, where, motivated by his desire to give back to the community, he runs weekly sessions which allow the young people to develop life skills and values. His son was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease when he was young and grateful for the support the family received from Crohn’s and Colitis UK, David now spends many hours fundraising and raising awareness with his son for the charity. David said: “I am greatly honoured to be the Airbus Community Champion. I would like to share this award with my colleagues that go unnoticed who do an excellent job helping with this community.” Trevor Higgs, Airbus UK Head of Engineering said: “Dave is a real ambassador for Airbus. He is dedicated in all he does.” Pictured is David Edgecumbe with the man who nominated him, Brian Scaife

n BOOK REVIEW WITH FILTON LIBRARY The Magic Toyshop, by Angela Carter Reviewed by a Filton Library Reader Three children have been left orphaned by the death of their mother and father. Fifteen-year-old Melanie takes it upon herself to become a surrogate mother to Jonathon, 12, and baby Victoria, but instead the three are sent away. They fetch up with their Uncle Philip, a tyrannical figure who runs the titular toyshop, a man who oppresses the children as easily as he crafts simulacra and automata that thrill, terrify and enthral in equal measure. So far, so Lemony Snicket. But Carter’s slippery, sly, rambunctious and profane novel is simultaneously a cut above and a searing commentary on the values of that mode of cod-Victoriana which has come to dominate so much of our popular culture (both children and adult): the novel slides effortlessly between a sort of horrified Gothic pastiche of the late 19th century—its mores, manners and morals, its fictions both literary and social—and a cunning attack on and celebration of the pretensions of the time and place in which it was written and set (London in the late 1960s). Along the way, Carter makes space for Classical allusions, class commentary, unexpected bursts of Grand Guignol (I defy anyone to forget the severed hand that crops up later in the book) and some musings on traditional gender roles, all wrapped up in Carter’s trademark rollicking prose. It is layered, rich and sumptuous, and though—like much of her fiction—consuming it in one sitting might be a little heavy on the digestion, I guarantee it will leave the most delicious aftertaste on the palate. A copy is available at Filton Library.

Clarification over bus link In last month’s edition we carried the story that the Cheswick Bus Link was to finally open. In our piece we stated that taxis would be allowed to use the bus lane, information that was given out publicly at a Lockleaze Forum attended by First Bus. We now accept that this information was incorrect. Oliver Coltman of Bristol Council confirms the position: “Clause 3 of the Traffic Regulation Order states that only buses, pedal cycles and public service vehicles can use the bus link. This means that taxis are not permitted to use the link”. As this error has caused some disquiet among local residents we are only too happy to set the matter straight.

May, 2017

Pictured: Children from Filton Avenue Primary Orchard Campus help to launch the trail..

Get walking and enjoy our arts trail Get walking and enjoy a day of fabulous art in the community. That’s the message from organisers of Art and Sole, a community arts trail in venues across Horfield, Southmead, Lockleaze and Filton this month. Most activities will be free with plenty of opportunities for families join in. The trail, brought by the With One Voice Partnership of local schools, aims to celebrate and promote the creativity and diversity in the community. It will take place in 11 venues, and will show off some of the amazing work of both children and adults in many different art forms. It will also give people the opportunity to find out more about what you can get involved in around your community, giving you the chance to have a go at things that you may have never tried before. Organiser Helen Howard

said: “We have put together a fantastic selection of arts events and we want families to take their map, get walking and visit them all if they can. “Not only will there be all sorts of things on display, but visitors will be able to try things

themselves and maybe be inspired to take up a new hobby in the future.” While on the trail, grab a 'selfie' with one of our fabulously decorated apples and post it to our Facebook page ‘With One Voice Partnership’ or our Twitter

page @WOVPartnership with the hashtag #AppleTrailSelfie ... You could be in with a chance of winning some fantastic prizes, including tickets to the Bristol Old Vic theatre, a term of drama classes, or a beginner’s art set.

Have your say on South Glos shake-up Filton could have one fewer councillor on South Glos after a review of boundaries. The independent Local Government Boundary Commission for England is asking local people for their help to draw up a new pattern of council wards for South Gloucestershire Council. The consultation is the first part of an electoral review which will re-draw ward boundaries across the council area.  The Commission says is minded to recommend that the council should have 61 councillors in the future: nine fewer than the current arrangements. Filton currently has three Labour councillors - Ian Scott, Roger Hutchinson and Adam Monk.  The Commission now needs information from people and groups across South Gloucestershire to help it to

produce a new pattern of wards to accommodate 61 councillors. In drawing up new boundaries, the Commission aims to deliver electoral equality for voters in council elections so that each councillor represents roughly the same number of voters.   Professor Colin Mellors, Chair of the Commission, said: “We are asking local people and organisations to help us draw up new wards for South Gloucestershire.  “If you have a view about which communities or neighbourhoods should be part of the same council ward, then we want to hear from you. And if you think a road, river or railway makes for a strong boundary between communities in your part of South Gloucestershire, then this consultation is for you.  “Your views will make a difference.    “Residents will then have

Current South Glos wards

a further chance to have their say after we publish our draft recommendations in September.” Local people have until 5 June 2017 to submit their views.

Further information on the review and interactive maps of the existing wards can be found at consultation.lgbce.org.uk and www.lgbce.org.uk.

Precious Concorde unwrapped ahead of museum opening Ahead of the new museum’s highly anticipated launch this summer, Aerospace Bristol has today taken the wraps off its star attraction: Concorde 216, the last of the supersonic passenger jets to be built and the last to fly. Concorde had been wrapped in protective film while works took place around the aircraft and the end wall of her new purpose-built hangar was built. The challenging task of wrapping and unwrapping a supersonic passenger jet was accepted and successfully completed by protective film specialists Packexe. Lloyd Burnell, executive director, Aerospace Bristol, said: “It’s fantastic to see Concorde unwrapped and looking stunning in her brand new home. As the centrepiece of Aerospace Bristol’s exhibition, Concorde will inspire the next generation to pursue careers in engineering and develop the big ideas of tomorrow. We can’t wait to welcome our first visitors on board this summer.” Packexe CEO Andrew Orchard said: “We pride ourselves on innovation and have over 25 years’ experience of using our technology and expertise. Although we usually supply protective film for various industries, we are always ready

to meet a new challenge. So when Aerospace Bristol, one of our favourite charities, asked us to wrap Concorde to protect her from the final stages of building works – how could we refuse?” Aerospace Bristol is being developed by the Bristol Aero Collection Trust, a registered charity that relies on corporate supporters and public donations. With a further £2m required to finalise the £19m project, the charity is currently seeking supporters who share their aim of inspiring the next generation to reach their full potential and pursue careers in science and engineering. Starting in the earliest days of flight, when Bristol Boxkite biplanes flew over Brunel’s Clifton Suspension Bridge, Aerospace Bristol will transport visitors through more than 100 years of fascinating aviation history. Visitors will travel through two world wars, exploring the vital role of aircraft in these conflicts, through the drama and technological advances of the space race and on to the modern day, where they will discover the latest technologies of today’s aerospace industry. As a first-class museum with learning at its heart, Aerospace Bristol aims to inspire the next generation of engineers.

Man jailed for stealing charity boxes Last month I told you that we were investigating a number of thefts of charity boxes from retailers which had happened in March. I’m pleased to be able to give you the update that a man has been jailed for these thefts. Thanks to great CCTV a 24-year-old man from Bristol was identified. He was charged with five thefts and an attempted theft of collections for charities including Great Western Air Ambulance Service, St Peter’s Hospice, Sue Ryder and the RNIB. Bristol magistrates have now sent him to prison for a total of 16 weeks. We’ve also caught up with a suspect believed to be responsible for thefts from collection boxes at a church in Filton. He’s

He’s due to be reported for summons to appear in court.

thought to have stolen cash from St Teresa’s Church on three occasions in the past three years and from a church in Wiltshire as well.

In the spring there can be an increase in unscrupulous people calling door-to-door aiming to con householders into having work done, often unnecessarily or at excessive cost, selling overpriced goods or trying to talk their way inside in order to steal. We and South Gloucestershire Trading Standards Officers want you to know about these scams and what can be done to deter them. Older people are more likely to be at home and can be unduly affected by this. Offering to help to get maintenance work done and reminding them of our home security tips can also help, as will passing on our crime prevention tips: • Remember, it’s ok to say no!

• Always use the safety chain and ask to see ID when you have an unexpected caller • Check ID by calling the organisation using a number from the phone book or your bill • Don’t be rushed – if they’re genuine they won’t mind coming back another time, when you can have someone with you • Never give cash upfront for work • Keep your money in the bank, not at home Please let us know at once if you’re suspicious of a caller. They might not bother you, but others could be more vulnerable. Give us a call on 101 with a description of them and any vehicle. If you feel intimidated or alarmed, call 999 immediately.

Bones found at Tormaton

Exhibition reveals how Bristolians used to live thousands of years ago Skeletons: Our Buried Bones 8 April – 3 September 2017 Six skeletons discovered in Bristol will go on display at M Shed this April alongside six skeletons from the Museum of London’s 20,000-strong collection. Collectively they bring to life stories that have long been hidden beneath the ground. The touring exhibition from the Wellcome Collection and the Museum of London opened at M Shed on April 8. Excavations in Bristol have uncovered numerous burial sites over the years, including Medieval monasteries, a hospital burial ground and a convent. The six Bristol skeletons were found in Clifton, Filton, Mangotsfield, Tormarton and the city centre. The individuals on display – from a Bronze Age man with a

spear-head lodged in his spine, to a decapitated Roman woman, and children with conditions linked to poor nutrition – provide a unique and personal insight into the human history of both cities. Laura Pye, head of culture at Bristol City Council, said: “Each skeleton has its own tale to tell, and collectively they uncover 2,000 years of history, increasing our understanding of how people once lived, and providing insights into the health, diet, diseases and lifestyles of the deceased. “It’s a totally unique insight into Bristol’s history.” Alongside the exhibition, M Shed and the University of Bristol have developed ‘The Bone Lab’, a space where children can reveal some of the science behind the stories. Children will discover how to distinguish between a

May, 2017

male and female skeleton and how to identify what diseases and injuries the people had by searching for hidden clues and hearing from experts of the excavation site, lab and museum. Schools will have an opportunity to visit Skeletons: Our Buried Bones during a special Science Study Week, between May 9&12. Teachers can bring their Year 5-7 classes to delve deeper into the science of bones with a new workshop, run with experts

from the University of Bristol. Activities include measuring replica human bones, comparing animal bones, handling teeth and learning about archaeological excavation. Skeletons: Our Buried Bones is a collaboration between Wellcome Collection and Museum of London, touring over 2016-2018. It is based on Skeletons: London’s Buried Bones, originally shown at Wellcome Collection in 2008.

MORE FAITH SCHOOLS? CAFE, Culture and Faith Exploration, St Andrews Methodist Church Filton, 7:30 – 9:30pm. Admission Free, donations for the St Andrews Future Church Fund Faith schools (strictly 'schools of a religious character') are controversial in the maintained sector. Are they socially divisive? Are they inappropriately selective? Do they enrich the mix of school provision? Why are they so popular with parents? Should the Church also support independent schools? Are they simply privileged schools for the wealthy?Our guest speaker is Rev Dr David Deeks a local retired Methodist minister and formerly the General Secretary of the Methodist Church of Great Britain. He is chair of two trusts which oversee the Methodist maintained schools and the Methodist independent schools.
