We have been helping the council with the Community Toilet scheme. 70 venues have signed up across the city, including a handful in BS3. If you know anyone who has a business and who would like to join the scheme please send them this link. The team is working on a printed map but in the meantime, the full list of signed up venues and digital map can be found here
Alongside the Bristol scheme, there is a national campaign called Use Our Loos campaign created by British Toilet Association, working in partnership with Domestos who are offering to provide free Domestos products to businesses who sign up to the Great British Toilet Map. Businesses who have already signed up to the Bristol Community Toilet scheme are automatically added to the map.
The public can use the map to discover loos near them and help improve the service by adding new locations or flagging loos that have closed. Business owners can sign up for the scheme by adding themselves to the Great British Public Toilet Map and then following the registration link.
There is a lot going on in our libraries – as well as hosting regular events, they are celebrating the centenary of the end of World War One. Bedminster is hosting a puppet show about the resistance on 25th October at 7.30pm. Book tickets here You can find information about events here, on our facebook page and on the BS3 Library Community Facebook page
Although the threat of closures has been temporarily lifted, there is a further consultation out on the future of our libraries, being launched through meetings in early November. We will keep you updated.
Bins, waste and litter
We know this is a continuing problem for several areas in the neighbourhood. We have been working with the four councillors and Bristol Waste to get your messages across and try to resolve particular problems. We will also be talking to Bristol Waste about how to improve things more generally – what residents can do, what plans Bristol Waste have in place and what practical solutions are out there.
You can report an incident using the Council’s reporting site.
We are organising more events ; see our Meetings and Events for more information.
