Bath Voice News: entries now open for Bath in Bloom – from window boxes to community gardens – there’s a category for everyone – free to enter

Bath in Bloom’s annual competition is set to take entries. It is open to all residents, businesses, community groups, schools, allotment holders, hotels and pubs in the BANES area. There is a wide range of categories to enter and it is free.

Grand time: Grand Friends is a new charity in Bath, set up to bring together local elders and younger people who may not otherwise have the chance to spend time in each other’s company.

The ethos behind the charity is that many older people are under-used community assets who are needed now more than ever. The charity trains and supports volunteers to give their company to younger people as part of three new programmes, the first being weekly lunch time Visits to a primary school in Oldfield Park, which has been a great success.

More than 20 volunteers have signed up, aged from 60 to 80 plus, of whom many have completed training. To join them call Lavinia on 07713400071 or email
