Although the neighbours alerted the Fire service so quickly, the wooden building of the Lawrence Weston Community Farm burned fast. However, the hard drive with the CCTV pictures survived. Preliminary police enquiries would seem to rule out mindless vandalism – it is looking as though it could have been a badly bungled burglary attempt.

The Farm doors will be open on Saturday morning from 10.30am and for neighbours and friends to drop in for a few minutes and share warm and supportive thoughts. The Major Marvin Rees will be joining as well.


Free Sessions to Help People Switch

An estimated 14 million people could save up to £200 a year by switching their energy provider. Could you be one of them? Unless you’ve changed tariff or provider in the last 12 months, it’s likely you’re paying too much for your gas and electricity and would benefit from an energy tariff check, even if you’d rather stay with your current supplier.

North Bristol Advice Centre’s new MoneySmart Energy project is offering free and impartial energy advice in community venues across North Bristol and South Gloucestershire. They can help with energy tariff checks, switching providers, identifying simple ways to reduce energy costs and using tablets or smartphones to access comparison sites.

MoneySmart Energy Advice team is now offering appointments in Lawrence Weston youth centre to help you check whether you could save.

To book an Energy Check appointment, contact the MoneySmart team on 0117 9515751 or email . You will need to bring your latest energy bill or annual statement.
