Social Group, East & North-East Bristol
What it is: A social group for members living in the East and North-East areas of Bristol.
When it is: Various days and times.
Where it is: We do not have a regular venue.
Greater Fishponds social group has been reinvented post-pandemic as the East and North East social group. We have replaced monthly meetings with more fluid arrangements combining informal social activities such as coffee mornings and picnics in the park with more organised activities suggested by group members.
We’ve set up a WhatsApp group so that everybody may contribute to the organisation and help build a sense of community. For example, a member wanting to try a new local restaurant could use the WhatsApp group to see if anyone else fancied joining them; another member might use WhatsApp to find company for a walk in the hills or a cycle ride and another member might have some plants to give away so could use the WhatsApp group to see if anyone wanted them.
We’re hopeful that this new approach will create a strong u3a community in East and North-East Bristol, attract new members and spawn several new local groups.
