LOCALS are invited to join Friends of Horfield Common for their annual summer picnic.

LOCALS are invited to join Friends of Horfield Common for their annual summer picnic.
There will be a host of activities on offer during the day, from 12-5pm, including arts and crafts, face painting, a bouncy castle, and music.
The APE Project and the Bristol Playbus will also be at the event.
Those attending on August 17 are invited to bring their own picnic, along with kitchenware which can be taken home, to reduce waste.
Stalls will be set up by local groups with information about the work FOHC is doing, including the final tree plan for Horfield Common, which the group is beginning to fundraise for; information about Project Ardagh - a campaign to save its community venue; and other projects.
In the evening, picnic-goers will move inside the Ardagh for a 'Bar-B-Q and Band' night, with the fantastic Phatbeat who were a huge hit at last year's picnic.
Food starts from 4pm and music from 7pm.
The event, supported by the Bishopston, Cotham and Redland Neighbourhood Partnership, is a chance to enjoy a get-together in the green, open space with friends and neighbours of all ages.
Donations of plants, books, toys and bric-a-brac to sell on the day are welcomed. Email friendsofhorfieldcommon1@gmail.com to arrange a time to drop off the items, or bring them along on the day.
