Frontline organisations know precisely where hunger exists & can deliver food to their locality. If you can support with volunteers, bulk donations of food, or donations, please do. @bw_businesswest @BLeaderNews @bristol247 @bbcpointswest @itvwestcountry @Ujimaradio @BCfmRadio https://t.co/rfI7t6kfPA

Back in the day the County and City of Bristol was affiliated to HMS Bristol. We share this moment of sadness and thank the only Type 82 Destroyer for her Service with the RN and for being an Icon in both War and Peace. @HMSPWLS @HMSFlyingFox @PeachesTweets @BrigJkFraserRM https://t.co/YiMxd0VLWT

Renamed in 1802 to @RoyalMarines they have provided @RoyalNavy with arguably the greatest Capability of its kind in the world for 356 years. Happy Birthday Royal. https://t.co/e8Hg8w8LFn

As we look to the future, so too we remember the past. Today we honour the memory of Admiral Lord Nelson and all those who died with him at the Battle of Trafalgar. That battle shaped the future of both the UK and the Royal Navy, and it is fitting that we pause to pay tribute. https://t.co/3LhJSDdyxJ
