‘Vision 21’ is 25 this year


Vision21 who run the Repair Cafe will be celebrating their 25th birthday this year and have a number of events and activities planned over the coming months to celebrate. Their general theme is ‘What will Sustainability look like in Cheltenham and Gloucestershire in 25 years’ time?’ So if you have any thoughts on this, please let me know


Vision 21 will also be celebrating past achievements (which are many) with informative. graphic displays and hopefully some will be interactive. There will be a display of these at St Andrew’s later in the year.


These are some of the events planned to whet your appetite:


A Special Repair Café. A light hearted visioning of a Repair café set in 2044 to be filmed on 7th September. Some dressing-up is likely along with a Repaired and Up-Cycling display.


A BIG art competition – 3 age categories with prizes to be won. Winning entries to be displayed on 18th October in the Garden Room and 19th October in The Garden’s Gallery, Montpellier. Look out for the posters in the Link Gallery for more details.


Vision21 is hosting a Climate Emergency Q&A just for 6th form students at St Andrew’s Church, Montpellier St on Friday 18th October from 1:00pm.

Knitters Needed!

Cheltenham Street Pastors are appealing for small items of warm clothing that can be handed out when the weather is very cold. Gloves, especially man-sized and woolly hats would be much appreciated.


Prayer support is always welcome – is that a service you could offer?
