Congratulations to Phil, a local Patchway resident, who won our Coronation Hamper. The winning number was 170 on the blue ticket. The Trustees would wish to thank Laura, Morrisons Community Champion, for donating the hamper, which raised a fantastic £180.
Please join our Coronation of King Charles activities at Coniston Community Centre,
in partnership with @Morrisons @southernbrooks and South Gloucestershire Playscheme.
You’ll find our exciting programme of coronation events in our Community Cafe on the ground floor.
You’ll also have an opportunity to meet and have a photograph with the Mayor, as a memory and to share on social media.
A big thank you to Laura Jones, Morrisons Community Champion, (2nd from left) for donating a hamper for the King’s coronation.

Dear Patchway Community.
Our shining light, Annette Morgan, fell asleep and was laid to rest on Monday 3rd April 2023.
Annette’s energy and legacy will live on, as Annette was a Trustee at Coniston Community Centre for many years and supported activities across Patchway.
Annette loved Tai Chi, dancing, cycling and making our community centre festive every Christmas.
We’ll miss Annette’s wicked sense of humour and positive, can-do attitude.
Annette had an infectious smile, which made everything feel OK.
You will be missed and not forgotten.
This course will help you explore how to prepare budget-friendly meals that require no or very little cooking skills
yet are delicious and nutritious.
Starting in January 2023, this FREE course will help you to prepare nutritious meals that won’t break the bank.
Every Wednesday from 4th January in the cafe from 11:30-13:30.
Come along and learn to enjoy cooking (and eating) great food!
Christmas time usually conjures up joyful images of family and friends celebrating, exchanging gifts, excited chatter and delicious food. For some people, however, it can be a dreaded, sad and lonely time. Local charity, the Marmalade Trust, understands how difficult Christmas can be for someone who is struggling with loneliness. We don’t want anyone to spend Christmas Day alone if they don’t want to, so we invite them to join us for a free festive lunch on the big day.
Members are those who feel particularly lonely and isolated this year, for example, a person of an older age who may have no family or friends around. To self-refer, or make a referral for someone else (with their consent), please go to www.marmaladetrust.org/referrals or call 07566 244788
Everyone who joins us is made to feel part of our Marmalade family and is supported by our network of friendly volunteers. We currently hold our lunches in pubs/restaurants throughout Bristol, South Glos and the N. Somerset. Each member also receives a connection doorstep visit in November and a Christmas gift.
“It means everything to know someone cares. Without Marmalade Trust, I wouldn’t have spoken to or seen anyone over Christmas. I’m so grateful.”
We’re still looking for more volunteers too! If can spare a few hours around lunchtime on Christmas day please get in touch. For all details head to our website or email email@example.com / call 07566 244788
After 3 years pause on running CAP Money Courses, we are starting up again as part of our response to cost of living crisis.
We are pleased to announce our first community listening event in support of our Local Nature Action Plan.
Tuesday 27th September at 6:30pm at The Tumps.
We want to know all about why nature is important to our residents and to have an open conversation about what we are doing for nature in Patchway.
Please do come along and voice your opinions so that we can help you to help nature.
There will be a Wildlife Walk around the Tumps as well as discussions on how we can improve our green spaces in Patchway. Hopefully, we will have some bat detectors on hand as well as some useful resources for everyone.
