25th September Covid-19 update
Gloucestershire County Council has recently commissioned a range of new mental health services to respond to the changing situation in light of Covid-19.
- in times of change, for example after redundancy, health issues or retirement;
- in times of emotional hardship, such as after a bereavement;
- who are worried about debt or financial issues;
- who don't know where to turn for support;
- who would like to volunteer in their community.
An important part of minimising and managing any future spread of Covid-19 is immediate isolation and rapid testing.
Anyone with symptoms of Covid-19 can have a test (you need to book)
Symptoms of Covid-19 include:
- a high temperature
- a new, continuous cough
- or a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste
In addition to the Hempstead Meadow testing site in Gloucester there are Mobile Testing Units in the county,

Guiting Music Festival
Home to exceptional music in the Cotswolds since 1970
Held annualy at the end of July
An online car sharing scheme, developed by Gloucestershire County Council, is now available to residents living in communities across the west Cotswolds.
Residents can register their trips and we can find matches for people heading in the same direction, at similar times on a particular day. You can sign up as a driver or somebody seeking a lift (or both!) to make shared journeys to and from your destination. You can even look at where people are going and if you could tailor your travel arrangements around their availability or request journeys. Details are available at their website or download the Flyer.
