Street Champions needed

You are invited to come along on
Wednesday 3rd October
6.30pm
and find out more.

A street champion is someone who keeps an eye out in their local area or even just their street. They report street scene, highways, environmental and other community safety issues so they are dealt with quickly.

Why become a street champion?  A well cared for and looked after street is less likely to experience crime and disorder.  Littering and graffiti are noticeably reduced.

It is not time consuming and you are not asked to do anything physical except walk, or cycle your “patch” and report problems.  If Bristol City Council and other organisations are unaware of problems how can they be resolved?

At the meeting you will have an opportunity to hear from Council officers and will be given hints and tips to get the best results when reporting.  You will hear about the new Neighbourhood Partnership Street Scene Group for Bishopston, Cotham and Redland Wards.

You may decide you wish to join the core group of officers and residents to help resolve issues that affect several areas and influence how services are delivered.

Meeting:  Wednesday 3rd October at 6.30 pm

Redland Green School.  Redland Court Road, Redland, Bristol  BS6 7EH

Excellent parking and disabled access.

Doors open at 6.15 pm   Refreshments will be available on arrival.

If you are interested in becoming a street champion but unable to come
