Thinking of Organising a Street Party or Fete?
Street parties and fetes are a traditional part of community life; they are a simple way for us to get to know our neighbours and meet members of our community. The Government says it wants to make it easier for you to hold these sorts of local events, without having to plough through mountains of forms and red tape. They have produced a simple step by step guide on how to hold a community event in your local area. It includes one simple form for you to use to let your local authority know about your plans.

Good Neighbours Networks
South Gloucestershire Council is offering to help people who would like to get more involved in their community.
The aim is to kick start a number of ‘Good Neighbours‘ networks whose purpose is to match up requests from people who need a helping hand with some simple tasks, with those in their neighbourhood who have volunteered a little time to help others.
