Chipping Sodbury Town Centre

FOUR new seats have been installed in Chipping Sodbury town centre after residents asked for more places to take a rest.
The request came from those who responded to a parish plan questionnaire.
It led to members and sponsors of the Sodbury Parish Plan group consulting with others about the proposal and getting support and grants from South Gloucestershire Council and Sodbury Town Council.
Now the work has been done to put the seats in place, giving people somewhere to sit outside The Hamptons delicatessen, Lloyds bank, the Coventry Building Society and the Rounceval Carriage Company.
Group spokeswoman Jane Lund said: “We would like to thank all of the businesses who supported us by agreeing to have seats outside their premises.
“A special mention goes to Jerry Hampton, Penny Kane and Joy May, without whose help this would not have been possible.”
