We’re 100pc behind police initiatives to catch speeders, which is why we welcome the camera van parked at New Road skate park on the road out of town this morning. ... See MoreSee Less

Stepping out… for the 17th time!

Pauline Roberts and her friend Jenny Davis will once again be raising money for Cancer Research UK by taking part in this year’s Race for Life event.
“Most of you will know that my lovely friend Jenny and I take part in the Race for Life every year, in fact, this is our 17th, albeit a very different event this year,” said Pauline
“During this awful year of Covid-19 we also lost two special people to cancer, Jenny's husband Roger Davis, and Lynda Holland, my stepdaughter's mum.
“We will be taking part in Wotton, if you see us on our travels on Saturday 26th September, please give us a smile and a wave.
“Of course Covid-19 has meant that all charities are losing money from the usual fundraising events that take part throughout the year, and it makes it all the more important to raise as much as we can for Cancer Research UK.”

On Saturday 26th September a group of intrepid lifeboat crew from Severn Area Rescue Association (SARA) will walk from Gloucester Docks to their lifeboat station at Sharpness Old Dock – a distance of 16½ miles – to raise funds for urgent maintenance to the station. This grade II listed building is now 180 years old and needs extensive repairs to make it watertight, warm and safe for the 35 volunteer lifeboat crew who are based there.
The volunteers will be walking in full lifeboat PPE – a drysuit with heavy steel-toe-capped boots, full lifejacket and protective helmet. The kit weighs as much as 15kg (30lbs) and is designed for keeping lifeboat crew safe on the water, not for walking long distances.
“We were hoping that the walkers and their support crew would be accompanied for part of the way by their friends and family – even by members of the public - but the new rules on gatherings mean that the small team of walkers will have to walk alone,” said lifeboat helm Matt Davies.
“In fact, on the day, all SARA support crew will be organised in teams of six or less – and they will also stick strictly to the 2m distance rule. If you want to see the challenge, please cheer the walkers on from a suitable distance!”
The crew will set off from Gloucester Docks at 10am and are due to arrive at Sharpness Old Dock around 5pm
The aim is to raise £25,000 for the essential repair work, with a target of £5,000 from the Challenge Walk itself. Donations can be made online – search justgiving/dockstodocks.
