In May Pete Naish, Vice Chairman of the CCLL (Bristol Link) charity, cycled over 900 miles in 10 days from the Atlantic Coast of France and over the Pyrenees, then reversed the route, with his support 'team' Graham Clark. He raised £6,415 for the charity, which will go towards paying for another visit next summer for 4 weeks’ respite holiday of 16 children from Osipovich in Belarus.
South Gloucestershire Council is working with the PG Group who own the Whitfield Tabernacle site in Kingswood to create a trust in order to look at options for the site and possibly bid to the Heritage Lottery Fund for funding to bring the site back into use. The partnership is looking for people who would be willing to join the board and contribute to the development of this highly valuable heritage site. We are looking for people who may have such skills as finance, legal, project management, funding applications etc to create a team that will be able to make significant progress on the site and in particular the Tabernacle.
We plan to hold a meeting in late September where people interested can come along and listen to some of the possible plans for the site and find out more without any commitment at that meeting.
As a local professional or business owner, if you feel you may be able to contribute your industry expertise to this exciting project please contact Martin Burton Community Cultural Services Manager, South Gloucestershire Council 01454 865782 or by email below.
Kingswood's Creative Youth Network has been given over £2,800 from students at UWE, raised in a varsity sporting tournament. Sandy Hore-Ruthven from Creative Youth Centre said: “We are thrilled to have such a generous donation from UWE. Not only will it help disadvantaged young people access sports health and fitness but they will also know the community of Bristol wants to play its part in supporting them.”
