A Bit of History

As far as we know, the new ‘Forum for the Greater Bedminster Community’ will be the third incarnation of strong networking within BS3.     Recent research traces formal networking back to 1996 with the formation of the ‘Greater Bedminster Community Forum’.     Around 2007, this morphed into the Greater Bedminster Community Partnership as BCC began to set up its Neighbourhood Partnerships.   Now that BCC has withdrawn, we move on into a third phase.    Whatever you call it, the important thing is to continue sharing ideas and information and collaborating across all sorts of organisations so as to make Greater Bedminster an even better place for people of all ages.

Documents associated with the first two phases of the Bedminster network were lodged as historic documents with the Bristol Records Office in the summer.    Hopefully, the future history of the new Forum will also be transferred in due course to the Records Office.   A letter outlining the papers transferred is attached.

And remember ‘history is made by the people who turn up’.

What Shall We call the GBCP NEWSLETTER after 2 November?
