Celebrate our neighbourhood during Festival Week

BISHOPSTON, Cotham and Redland Neighbourhood Partnership Festival week showcases free events run by some of the many community groups across our area starting from Saturday April 30 until Sunday May 8.

The festival is a week of community activities in the area. It started in 2013 and aims to encourage people’s contributions towards the wellbeing of our neighbourhood.

This year’s festival includes the annual Bank Holiday Monday May Fair held on Redland Green, organised by the Redland and Cotham Amenities Society, the Gloucester Road Central May Fest, run by the local traders group, which includes a visit from the Bristol Jack in the Green, and the Golden Hill Community Garden Spring Fair.

During the opening Saturday April 30, there will be ‘My Wild Park’ event in the Horfield Common. People involved in running a community event in this Festival week or those who would like to organise a new one, please get in touch with the Partnership at info@bcrnp.org.uk .There is a small pot of seed funding to help with running free events.

Other events will be added to the program during the next few weeks. Further details about the Festival week are available on the website www.bcrnp.org.uk and on Facebook Page BCR Neighbourhood Partnership.

The Neighbourhood Partnership supports community activities and involvement through grant funding and other resources. The NP provides opportunities for the local resident and business community to shape service provision by the council and police in our area through meetings and online engagement.

The next Resident’s Forum, the first of the new combined format, will take place May 24 from 7pm till 9pm at Horfield Quaker Meeting House, 300 Gloucester Road BS7 8PD.
