LOCALS are gearing up for a fun-filled week of community activities across Bishopston, Cotham and Redland.

In its third year, the 'Our Neighbourhood' festival, coordinated by the BCR Neighbourhood Partnership, boasts many events run by local groups and businesses.

The week aims to encourage community engagement, as well as provide people with an opportunity to socialise, and to learn about what their neighbourhood has to offer.

Organisers are also aiming to increase awareness of the neighbourhood partnership and other community groups.

The BCR Neighbourhood Partnership is run by residents for local people, in partnership with the council and local police.

The festival, running from May 2-10, will include the Whiteladies Farmers Market, the Redland May Fair, Gloucester Road Central Mayfest, the Golden Hill Community Garden spring fair, as well as a host of other events.

A festival programme will be available online, at: www.bcrnp.org.uk. All local residents, workers and students are invited. Most events and activities are offered free of charge.
