Yate Priority Neighbourhoods


Abbotswood Action Group was created 14 years ago and is the local community group which encourages and hosts regular gatherings of anyone and everyone who lives, works,  is employed within, or has a care about this area. We discuss ideas and make plans which help bring the local community together, tackle issues, voice concerns to local authorities, and also improve the local environment. St Nicholas Family Centre,

Cranleigh Court

Everyone is welcome at the Cranleigh Court Community Hub situated in Tyndale Primary School. The purpose of the hub is to create and build connections and opportunity in the local area. We offer advice, guidance, signposting to connect with others and pursue the things that matter most to local people.  We would like to hear your ideas about how to make positive changes in your neighbourhood.
