Warm Welcome Logo

Yate Town Council, in partnership with organisations from across the community, is pleased to announce the launch of Warm Welcome – a new initiative designed to offer warm and welcoming places for people to drop-in and use throughout the colder, winter months. Completely free of charge, the service aims to support those in the community who are adversely impacted by the cost-of-living increases, in particular, rising energy costs. 

Warm Welcome has been made possible through generous donations and volunteer support, from Community Champions at Morrisons Yate, Waitrose Chipping Sodbury and Livewest, and community partners at Grace Church, The Oasis at CSBC, Candle Community Cafe, Yate Library, The Gatehouse at Gateway Elim Church, Chipping Sodbury Library, St. Mary’s Church (Yate), St. Nix Church (Abbotswood) and St. James Church (Westerleigh).

Community Driven

Yate Town Council Community Projects Team, have been working with the community to identify possible venues across Yate and the surrounding parishes, that could offer facilities and activities to Warm Welcome. If you are a community group or business, that has a space or activity you can offer to the public, free of charge or, if you can offer funding or resources such as refreshments, games, books, newspapers and magazines, please contact the Town Council.
