The search is on to find the relatives of those whose names are on the memorial because on 10th June it is the first centenary of the dedication of the Wayside Cross. A rededication service is being led by the present Bishop of Clifton, Bishop Declan. We desperately need your help to find as many relatives as we can and invite them to be our Guests of Honour at this service. A full list of those names can be found here.

Councillors voted on Wednesday evening to proceed with plans for mountain bike trails in Woodchester.
The site for the project is adjacent to the existing cycle path just north of Selsley Road.
The trails will be completed by Trailcraft, an experienced company from South Wales and will include two tracks, a ‘green grade’ for children from age four and a ‘blue grade’ track for slightly older riders.
Work is expected to begin around the 28th February and the tracks will take around three weeks to complete.
Councillors agreed to pay a shortfall in funding from Parish Council reserves in order that there are no more delays. It’s hoped that fundraising will take place to replenish the reserves during the year. Any ideas gratefully received!
If you’d like more information on the trails or would like to be more involved in maintenance or fundraising, please contact the clerk Ann Bijkerk – email@example.com
Plans for mountain bike trails were initiated by the Parish Council in 2013. Due to numerous delays and set-backs the trails are yet to be constructed. There will be a meeting to discuss the future of the proposed trails on Wednesday 8th February at 8pm in the Village Hall. All are welcome to attend.
The draft minutes of this meeting are now available.
