Christmas

  • It’s the festive Local Produce Market tomorrow morning – 9am-1pm, Saturday 22nd December, GP surgery car park – ideal for some convenient last minute Chritmas shopping.
  • Bristol Independents Loyalty Card – at a time of year when shopping is inevitably at the forefront of many of our minds, maybe we can take a moment to consider where we are doing that shopping and what we are buying. Here is a list of local indepent businesses participating in the Christmas loyalty card scheme.
  • LifeCycle UK recycle old, unwanted bikes with the help of prisoners at Horfield Prison – see http://www.lifecycleuk.org.uk/bike-recycling. If you are getting a smart, new bike for Christmas or just have some old bikes languishing in the shed/garage, consider donating your old one to them.
