Coronavirus and our community
We are very aware that lives for everyone in our Community are being severely affected in one way or another during this pandemic. We want to wish everyone in our community the very best of health in this difficult time. We would be pleased to help anyone in our community if we can. So if you, or someone you know, needs help in any way please feel free to contact us and we will do our best to assist.
You can contact us by phoning 0117 929 1883 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
We are deliberately not providing advice on Coronavirus as this changes almost daily, and advice can be found at https://www.bristol.gov.uk/ or https://www.gov.uk/ or <https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/coronavirus
Neighbourhood help groups have been established to assist those most in need, and just to support each other. It is our belief that help is most easily provided by those closest to each other, whether that is geographical, or as members of related families. We hope there is a help group within your reach.

Stay Safe. Keep Healthy.
Cumberland Basin/Western Harbour
The Cumberland Basin Stakeholder Group have written to the Mayor of Bristol asking for reassurances about engagement before development in the light of the Covid 19 lock-down which is preventing meaningful engagement as planned.The letter can be viewed here.
Following on from the idea of an early engagement plan (see History and Timeline), on 26th February the Chairman of the Advisory Group, John Savage, together with the Mayor and officers from Bristol City Council met many of the staff of Riverside Garden Centre along with other local businesses and local people. We understand that Riverside Garden Centre will be facilitating creating a business group to engage with BCC in relation to the thinking and planning for any development within the area.
HCCA have recently received an invitation, as part of the early engagement plan, to meet with John Savage and members of the Advisory Group and your committee is in the process of trying to find suitable venue and date that will allow as many as possible to participate in such a meeting. More will be posted here and elsewhere as soon as we know the details.
Update 19 March 2020
Having written only very recently of our plans to hold an open meeting with John Savage and members of the Advisory Group, we have now had to put this on hold because of Covid 19 and the Government advice regarding gatherings. Clearly we have no idea at the present time how long this will last. Sufficient to say that as soon as it is sensible to think about organising a meeting we will look for a suitable date, time and place and let as many as we can know about it.
Our 2019 Annual General Meeting took place last November at the Holy Trinity Church Hotwell Road BS8 4ST
HCCA and the Cumberland Basin Stakeholder Group sent feedback on the Western Harbour possible road network changes to Bristol City Council in September 2019
Welcome to Cliftonwood’s family film screening. This year the date is Friday 6th September and Cliftonwood voted for Mary Poppins.
Gates open at 7pm so come early to pick your spot, the film starts at 8pm. We provide 40 chairs on a first come first served basis. Most people bring rugs etc to sit on the grass.
Mary Poppins attire could add to the fun if you fancy dressing up. Though do wrap up warm as it gets chilly later! Food, drink and toilets are available at The Lion next door.
There is no interval and so the film should finish by 10pm.
For updates keep an eye on our Facebook page
We’re very grateful to The Lion for sponsoring our event
If you know of any local businesses that would like to sponsor the cinema please email email@example.comRead more
