Freezing mist didn't stop a large turnout for the Gloucester Road Central Christmas Street party on December 1st.

The Bishop Road Community Choir and Glos Vox Choir sung lovely festive songs to a big crowd gathered outside Room 212. Mr Gotalot chatted to fans before helping artist Jenny Urquhart draw the prize winner of her original ‘This is Our Bristol’ painting. 

There was loads of lovely food outside Giles Butchers & Cafe Dream while Gopals Curry Shack set up outside Pawsons. Boston Tea Party and Joe's Bakery gave out lots of free samples of Christmas goodies and mulled wine kept the adults warm at various spots including the Golden Lion. 

One sad note is the news that Moodles children's clothing shop has decided to shut up shop at the end of January. A range of lovely original and vintage kids clothing will still be available online at www.moodles.biz. Customers are invited to pop in during January to take advantage of special offers before they close the doors for good. 

The Gloucester Road Art Banners project has been greeted with great excitement - the deadline for artists' submissions is Feb 20th. Everyone is encouraged to put on their creative thinking hats and send in images inspired by our wonderfully diverse high street of independent shops. The banners will make up the longest outdoor art exhibition in Bristol and possibly the world!
