Doynton History New documents related to the history of Doynton have recently been added to the village website on the History page. These include re-edited versions of the late Richard Kent’s booklets first published in the late 1980s/early 1990s: Doynton and its Post Office; Doynton and its Sinners; Doynton and its Saints; Doynton and the People In-between; Doynton at Work and Play. The previous versions have received over 8,800 views to date. There is also a History of Tracy Park (again by Richard Kent), first published in 1969. David Vaudrey authored two more recent documents which have now be re-edited and digitised: one on the Davy Hatchment in Holy Trinity Church (originally produced in 2006); and another on the Millennium Stone (from 2000). Finally, a series of pen and ink drawings of the village in the 1990s by Peter Rubery have been digitised and added. If you have any suggestions for further documents that could be digitised for the website, please email . Ron Ritchie & Frances Lindsey-Clark.

Doynton Food Bank Thank you all for your continued support for North Bristol Foodbank. It is looking like a tough winter for many families, as people exhaust their savings and jobs are cut. According to the Trussell Trust, foodbanks are expecting to give out a food parcel every 9 seconds over the winter. Please put whatever items you can spare in the collection boxes (Doynton village and North Bristol) in Doynton church porch. To avoid food waste, items that have remained uncollected in the Doynton box for several weeks will be passed on to North Bristol Foodbank. Thank you!
