A MUSIC festival held near Thornbury will return this summer after a successful first year.

The inaugural Mellow in the Meadow was held at Pound House Farm, Old Gloucester Road last September. It will return on August 31. Festival organisers recently visited the Great Western Air Ambulance base at Almondsbury to present a cheque for £1,000, a donation from the proceeds of the first event.

This year the festival will raise money for Farm Safely Foundation charity Yellow Wellies as well as GWAAC.
