  1. Just days after the owners of the industrial units on Church Road were alerted by the Parish Council that youngsters had been seen playing and climbing onto the buildings, a fire broke out on Tuesday 23rd October necessitating the attention of 3 fire engines. The premises previously occupied by Griston Engineering were gutted.

    The owners have now made the entire site as safe as they possibly can and only time will tell as to what happens next, as it is obviously an eyesore. If anyone has any concerns or questions, or has any information about who might have been responsible, please contact David Barnett, Parish Council Chairman on 880441 who has contact with the owners and will endeavour to help.

  2. The recent Grand Second Hand Book sale held at Thompson Community Hall took on the day £1,220.44, which is the best yet!

    £406.81 each will be given to Griston and Thompson churches and Thompson Community Hall, this last in lieu of hire fees. We want to thank everyone who has helped with the sales during the year, either by donations, volunteering, and of course by buying.  With your support we have distributed over three thousand pounds this year alone.

    The sales in 2019 will be on 13th April, 13th July, and 14th September.

    The Spring Sale will have plants & planters for sale, so we'd very much appreciate donations if you are splitting any house or garden plants. Donations of toys, games, puzzles, really any child-related items except clothes, will be most welcome for our Summer Children's Special. Details of the Autumn Sale are still to be finalised. Watch this space! Donations can be left with us at any time, just give us a call. We will of course collect if needed. We look forward to welcoming you next year.
