At the beginning of the summer 2021 we launched our community event fund. A pot of money from our endowment fund, that members of the community were invited to apply for to run community events to bring the community together again. Here are some of the events that took place…
BCFM Community Day
“What an amazing day we had at BCFM radio today! I feel blessed to have such an amazing team able to welcome listeners and new volunteers to the station!”
Pat Hart, Station Manager
Barton Hill Activity Club, Netham Park summer party
“We celebrated our diversity today with cultural food from East Africa, Algeria, Yemen with BBQ and music in our last day of the summer programme.” Barton Hill Activity Club, tweet
Clare Street, street party
“Celebrating solidarity and community with my neighbours after such a hard year was incredible. We have really built a community spirit during COVID times and leaned into each other’s support… I am very grateful we had the funding to bring musicians and games to really celebrate, dance and laugh together.” Resident
The Dings Community Day
The Dings Community Day was a great success. Residents came together to organise a day of fun and community at the park. They had a circus act, science experiments, a local jazz band and football tournament, raffle, lucky dips, history stand, and hotdog stall.
Friends of Rawnsley Park
A group of young women recently formed Friends of Rawnsley Park. They worked with Bristol Horn Youth Concern to hold a community fun day at the park.
