Public Forum this Thursday
Our next Public Forum (which is also our inaugural AGM) is this Thursday 22nd February 2018, 7pm-9pm at Bishopston Library.

Unfortunately Bristol's Mayor, Marvin Rees, who had accepted an invitation to attend has had to unexpectedly cancel. We are hoping at least one member of his Cabinet will attend to inform us about the Council's approach to community involvement.

The Forum will include:

BCR CP inaugural AGM (see below)
Police update
Latest on Libraries
Future of North Bristol Baths
Great Bristol Spring Clean
Walk to Health
Updates from local Councillors
Topics raised from the floor
