Regular follower Helen Peter in Widcombe has been in touch regarding the lack of any local source of information regarding what is happening from day to day amongst Bath’s many and varied communities.
“It struck me that there isn’t much to let people know things to do in Bath any more. The tourist office seems to repeat the same old stuff that organisers probably pay to advertise .
I am particularly interested in local fetes, harvest festivals and small shows etc in parishes and villages, like Bathampton , Claverton and Corston.”
She then gave me some information about the success of one local project.
“Widcombe West BBQ and Late Summer Party raises £183!This Sunday saw over 60 local residents gather in St Mark’s Community Centre garden to socialise and share a BBQ and refreshments together.
The weather was kind and everyone was delighted to meet up with neighbours after such a long lock down.St Mark’s garden is kept neat and tidy by Acorns’ Playgroup and the local garden group, it is a beautiful shared space, an oasis right next to the heart of the city.
The raffle and donations for glasses of Prosecco raised £183, which will go towards good causes locally.
The next social is on December 12th, when the annual Christmas party will take place, this time inside St Marks Hall.”
Thanks for that Helen. I am not sure Bath Newseum is going to turn into a sort of ‘Bath Venue’ but l am happy to ‘heads up’ activities from time to time.
