A SUCCESSFUL workshop was held last month, advising Bishopston, Redland and Cotham residents about utilising a neighbourhood grant received as part of Bristol being European Green Capital for 2015.
Each neighbourhood partnership across the city has received £10k to award groups or individuals within the community who come up with an idea for a sustainable, green project.
Over 20 people attended the workshop on October 8, and were able to develop their ideas into potential projects.
The event also encouraged people to think about long term benefits of their initiative, and how its outcome or success could be gauged.
According to Green councillor, Martin Fodor, most people left the workshop interested in turning their idea into a bid.
Some priority themes have been identified by Bristol Green Capital, including energy, waste reuse and repair, transport, nature, and food.
The closing date for the Bishopston, Cotham and Redland Green Capital grant applications is November 13. Forms and more details are available on the neighbourhood partnership website: www.bcrnp.org.uk.
