Pride of Place Exhibition and Awards

Neighbourhood Partnerships have been given the opportunity to exhibit their work in the new MShed museum as part of the Pride of Place programme which will take place between 23rd and 31st July 2011.


The exhibition is a great opportunity for local people to display their achievements for the rest of the city to see; plans include artwork, interactive displays with plants, photos, videos and more.   

There is an awards ceremony on Wednesday 27th July 2011 as part of the Pride of Place programme. Neighbourhood Partnerships can enter their work for awards in categories such as “stronger communities”, “local environment” and “overall winner”.  For ideas of how to display your material click here.

Lifecycle Bike Sale in Bristol - 20th July 2011


Roll up, roll up for another opportunity to buy a refurbished bicycle! Local charity Life Cycle UK, will be holding another bike sale on Wednesday 20th July between 8:30am - 3pm in the City Centre (the island area, opposite The Hippodrome on St Augustine’s Parade).


Project Manager, Poppy Brett commented

“95% of our customers thought that the bike they purchased from us represented excellent value for money.  So, come on down on Wednesday 20th July and get yourself a fantastic bike at a brilliant price!”


This bike sale is part of a project called BikeBack, a bike recycling project for Bristol organised by Life Cycle.  Unloved and unwanted bikes are donated to the project by members of the public, then refurbished by prisoners at HMP Bristol, helping to provide them with meaningful skills and qualifications.  The bikes are then sold at low prices to encourage more people to start cycling.  All money raised from sales goes back into the scheme to pay for spare parts and equipment.

Children’s bikes start at £10.00 and adult bikes are priced between £40 - £100. Bikes are intended to help those on lower-incomes to buy a bike and get cycling.

All the bikes have been given a comprehensive inspection by a Cytech qualified mechanic to ensure that they are safe, fit for purpose, and ready to ride before being sold.  

Life Cycle will also be offering discounts on its Bike Maintenance courses. Anyone who buys a bike on the day, will be entitled to £5 off either a basic “Know Your Bike” course or the more advanced BMW (bike maintenance workshop).

The scheme relies on a supply of unwanted bikes to fix up , so if you have a bike that you no longer use, that just needs a bit of TLC to get it working again, then please bring it along and donate it to the scheme.  We particularly need ladies style bikes. or call Poppy Brett on .
