Community day

MEETING our newly elected MP and discussing what improvements can be made locally are just a few of the items on the agenda for an upcoming community fair.

The event, organised by the Bishopston, Cotham and Redland Neighbourhood Partnership, will take place on September 19, 12.30-4.30pm, at St Michael's Church in Pigsty Hill.

It aims to engage as many local people as possible.

There will be a chance to meet Bristol West's MP Thangam Debbonaire, as well as take part in workshops and other activities.

The fair also includes an opportunity to apply and vote for funding for projects in the area.

Neighbourhood Partnership working groups will be on hand to discuss ideas for new beneficial projects; making improvements to the local area; and how you can join the team.

Bikes will be able to get fixed for free and fun activities will keep both children and adults entertained.

For the full list of activities, visit www.bcrnp.org.uk, follow @bcr_np on Twitter, or BCRNP on Facebook.

 

Little grants for big ideas

MEMBERS of the public needing a financial boost to carry out a community project are being urged to put their ideas forward. 

Whether interested in kick-starting an initiative, needing cash to organise an event or hire a meeting room, wanting to print leaflets to promote a new group, or planning to hire transport for a group outing – the Bishopston, Cotham and Redland Neighbourhood Partnership is offering residents £250 to make their ambitions become a reality.

Anyone can put in a bid – regardless of age. All that applicants need to do is submit their idea to the neighbourhood partnership, setting out their aims and how the money would be spent.

Those attending the community fair on September 19 (read more on pg. 45) will then be able to vote who gets the cash.

Applicants will have a stall at the fair, and they will be required to provide photos of how the money was spent.
