The Bishopston, Cotham and Redland Neighbourhood Partnership will have its final meeting on Monday 5th June, 7pm at Colston's Primary School, Cotham. This will also be the first meeting of a new interim BCR Community Partnership.

Council funding has been withdrawn from Neighbourhood Partnerships as part of council budget cuts but local volunteers have been putting together plans to allow coordination amongst community groups in the area to continue. At a public meeting on 25th April, 29 local residents affiliated to 12 different community groups met to discuss what form the new organisation should take.

The BCR Community Partnership would like to continue to hold quarterly public forums to bring together residents, councillors, local police and community groups. Once fully formed, it will also be able to bid for funding for future local initiatives in the area. Any individual, or any group, who would like to get involved is encouraged to come along to the meeting on 5th June, or can make contact using the existing NP email address: info@bcrnp.org.uk.
