Nailsea Town Council has appointed Hayley Orchard as its new community and wellbeing officer.

She started her role in April, operating out of the No 65 High Street community hub.

It is open to residents every Thursday and Friday.

The council's new staff member is tasked to aid residents with health and wellbeing problems.

On her new role, Ms Orchard said: "There are 5 steps to wellbeing – Connect, Be Active, Be Mindful, Learn; and Give.

"I want to be able to help Nailsea residents assess these steps to healthy wellbeing so they can be the best they can be.

"So, no matter how big or small your issue is I will try to help you, or point you in the right direction of someone who can help.

"Please drop into No 65 if you need help".
