The Green Party enjoyed a huge surge of support in the Bristol area in the recent European Election and Molly Scott Cato was re-elected as MEP for the South West of England and Gibraltar. To celebrate, Molly and her supporters held a celebration at new bar Alchemy 198, Gloucester Road. Many local environmental groups and activists were represented at the celebration including Sustainable Bishopston, the Bishopston Society, Green councillors and the Green contender for Bristol Mayor.
Bar owner Sarah Thorp said: “So many positive, proactive conversations took place during the celebration that it was decided a ‘Green Mingle’ should take place at Alchemy 198 every month. This gives people an opportunity to meet in an informal, fun way, have constructive discussions and meet others who want to make a difference.”
The first Green Mingle occurs on Clean Air Day, June 20. Future meetings will take place on the 2nd Wednesday of the month so the next meeting will be on Wednesday July 10 from 7pm - 10.30pm. Award winning Bristol singer songwriters Larkham and Hall will be playing live from 8pm. Everyone is welcome to come along and mingle, or with a friend!
