We can now access thousands of local and national newspapers free of charge through our online library resources.
They now offer the majority of national and local papers in addition to a range of international titles.
During the coronavirus pandemic there has been a significant increase in the number of people accessing online library resources, so they have been increased and expanded with the help on a grant of £1,000 from the Arts Council England.
South Gloucestershire Libraries also offer ebooks, eaudiobooks, digital magazines and eComics.
After successfully re-opening three of our Sort It recycling centres at Thornbury and Yate last weekend, we are now in a position to accept a full range of waste at both sites from Thursday 21 May.
Some restrictions around the type of waste that could be disposed of were in place so we could implement essential social distancing measures and evaluate how efficiently the sites were operating with the measures in place.
With residents listening to advice around only using the sites if absolutely necessary, it now means we can return to accepting our normal range of waste and we will continue to offer extended opening hours until further notice: 6am to 6pm, 7 days a week, including Bank Holiday Monday 25 May.
Red Door Coaching and Training are very pleased that their new website is live! We have updated our look to reflect how Red Door has progressed over the last few years. We are also sharing what we can do for our clients in an easier to access, clearer format.
This period of lockdown has made us make many changes to how we are working. For the first time we are running online workshops, successfully delivering training remotely to teams working from their homes.
Our experience of delivering workshops that focus on Managing Remote Teams, Managing by Outcomes, Dealing with Stress and Resilience have been valuable to our business in these different times.
While we have been getting used to working from home we are equally looking forward to stepping back into the wider world.
South Gloucestershire Council are inviting feedback on our new Council Plan which covers the period 2020 to 2024.

Weekly recycling collections will resume across South Gloucestershire from Wednesday 13 May after being temporarily changed to keep essential collections running during the COVID-19 outbreak.
The switch to fortnightly recycling collections has enabled us to continue to collect black bin waste as normal with a significantly reduced workforce. Encouragingly, tonnages for recycling have remained broadly comparable over the past 4 weeks.
Staffing levels had dropped to below 70 per cent at the time the temporary changes were brought in, but they have gradually recovered to over 80 per cent today.
From 13 May, residents are advised to put their recycling out on their normal collection day by 7am and bear in mind that our crews may be working longer hours than usual.
If you need support during this Coronavirus crisis, you can contact community development organisation Southern Brooks. Call 07773 209943 or email below 8am-8pm for advice on practical and wellbeing support.
