Hot Topics, Fishponds
What it is: A lively discussion group in an informal atmosphere
When it is: The first Friday of each month at 1pm
Where it is: The Cross Hands, 1 Staple Hill Rd, Fishponds BS16 5AA. We have a reserved space at the front of the pub.
Come and discuss controversial topical issues over a sandwich and/or a drink in the friendly Cross Hands pub. We take it in turns to suggest one highly topical issue per meeting as a conversation-starter and then let conversation flow naturally. There is no chairperson and we may split into small discussion groups depending on how many turn up. Topics are always highly topical and include current political, social and environmental issues.
The Fishponds social group follows at 2pm. We hope you’ll stay and either continue the discussion or simply chat with new arrivals.
The Cross Hands serves tea and coffee as well as the usual range of drinks. Their lunch menu is reasonably priced and includes sandwiches as well as larger meals.
