Lockleaze Community Orchard

The clocks have changed and the evenings are getting warmer! Join us for some after-work gardening on your way home.

We are a friendly group of local volunteers digging, planting, pruning, hoeing and harvesting to create a space where everyone can enjoy nature and learn about growing food.

Come along for any amount of time that suits you - whether that's half an hour or the whole day!

What you might need:
- No gardening skills required, the team will be on hand to talk you through the tasks
- Bring gloves and tools if you have them although some will be provided.

Can't come but still want to help?
- Can you bake a cake to help nourish our wonderful volunteers?
- Can you help with watering? If you go past the orchard regularly, can you take a bottle of water for the plants? Drop us a message to find out more!
- Do you know an organisation who could have their corporate volunteer day at the orchard? We're putting together a package, email lockleazecommunityorchard@gmail.com to find out more.

A special thanks to Incredible Edible Bristol for lending us their tools for this work party!

Libraries and communities: your ideas on what next?

libraries.png

What are your information needs

How can the library service change to meet your needs

Have you got ideas or suggestions for your library and its building? Can you help make these ideas happen? We are inviting you to come along to one of our community events running from January, which will bring local people and organisations together to look for opportunities for community-led activities and partnerships to create a library service for the future. This is everyone’s opportunity to work together to pilot new ideas.

The library service is greatly valued but it needs to change to be more relevant to the neighbourhood and local people. We need to work together to create a library service which will serve future generations and be well connected to everything else that’s going on in the local area.

This is your chance to be part of it – just come along with your ideas.

The following events are taking place – the libraries being discussed at each event are detailed in the listing – please book on to the relevant one for the library you are interested in.

Lockleaze Residents Planning Group

Lockleaze Residents Planning Group

Lockleaze is changing. A new secondary school for 1200 pupils, up to 1500 new homes, all will have a major impact on the area. It is important that residents hear about developments, have their say on what is important and create the community that we want to live.

Lockleaze Neighbourhood Trust supports a resident led group to meet monthly in the Cameron Centre so that residents have their say. This group has been really successful at speaking to developers and influencing projects before they go to planning. All residents and those with a close interest in the area are welcome. We do not all need to agree it is a chance to hear a range of views and make sure that developers hear different views and needs.

Lockleaze Community Led Housing

If the developers are building over 1000 homes in Lockleaze then surely the community can build 100 of their own. Following discussions with the community about their housing need, a pilot group of residents have come together to design and commission community led housing. The priorities set by the group include: affordability, building for wellbeing, providing assets to sustain community organisations. All welcome to come to these meetings, or look out for other ways to get involved at www.lockleazehub.org.uk

Three Kings  - A play in half term by Travelling Light theatre company

Three Kings - A play in half term by Travelling Light theatre company

Three weary travellers from far off lands meet by chance as night approaches, all looking to the darkening skies. As shadows draw in, they eventually overcome their suspicions of each other and exchange stories; stories of love, stories of loss, stories of kings.

Where have they come from and where are they going and what is so special about this night? How many stars are there in the sky, is there such a thing as chance or do the constellations have a plan mapped out for each and every one of us?

Travelling Light brings it’s inventive and fresh twist to a classic tale. Three Kings fuses storytelling, song and dance and puppetry in a sparkling show about finding out where you belong, overcoming your differences and listening to the secret stargazer in each of us.

Length: 50 - 55 minutes

Recommeneded for Year 1 - 6

Price: Free but booking essential
