March update

Action Greater Bedminster Annual General Meeting
The AGM will be on Wednesday 27th March at 7pm at acta,  Gladstone St, Bristol BS3 3AY.

The current committee includes the four local councillors, representatives from member organisations and local residents. We are an enthusiastic group of volunteers who are working together to improve or neighbourhood by listening to local residents, working with local organisations and businesses and sharing information about issues that affect our area. We meet regularly, run events, support local groups and projects. We’d welcome new members to take AGB forward during what will be a time of change and opportunity for our neighbourhood. If you would like to be on the committee, please do get in touch. 

We hope to see you at the meeting. We will be consulting members on a slight change to our structure to have an executive group that meets regularly, perhaps once a month, ad steering group that meets less often. We will also be looking at our draft community vision and manifesto.  

Recycling and waste – myth busting and information sharing
This is a free meeting, on Thursday 14th March at Windmill HIll City Farm cafe, with Ed Troughton from Bristol Waste and Stacey and Lidia from Zero Green. We will be looking at how much rubbish we collect, benefits of recycling, what happens to it all, and busting some recycling myths as well as exploring how we can reduce our use of plastic, and our waste in general. 

The cafe will be open, serving hot and cold drinks and snacks. You can book here .

Clean Air
We had a very interesting meeting about what we could do in our own neighbourhood and what else is happening across the city. Initial thoughts were around school streets, improving monitoring, ways of sharing information and possible funding. We hope this group will continue to meet and take things forward. if you would like to be involved, please sign up to the mailing list here.

Friends of Bedminster Library
The inaugural meeting of this group is on Thursday 21st March at 7pm at Bedminster Library. If you can’t come but are interested in being involved, please get in touch. If you have any thoughts or ideas about what a friends group could do, please let us know.
