Beating the Bounds of Yate Common - 13 May

Beating the Bounds is a traditional activity for Rogation Sunday - we walk round the boundaries of the Common ao that local people know what they hold as a community asset. In some places they beat the bounds of an entire parish, or ride round the boundaries of larger parishes.

The Common was nearly sold off for housing some years ago, but a determined campaign by local people (many now in the Focus Team) kept it in public ownership. This gives beating the bounds of the Common a special meaning. Please bring your children to show them what a lovely area we have just on the edge of the town.

We're meeting by the kissing gate opposite St Briavel's Drive at 3pm next Sunday, 13 May. Please come and join us.
