Multicultural Totterdown

diverse

Totterdown is beautifully diverse and we want to celebrate that by capturing stories of those people who have moved here from other countries.  Who are they, why did they move, and what do they love about Totterdown.  The stories will then be published to share the diversity of where we are.

Stanley Hill is often used as a rat run for traffic between Bath Road and Wells Road.  This creates pollution, noise, and danger.  Local residents are keen to tackle this issue through road calming techniques, as well as a monthly street party over the summer which closes the road for residents to meet up, chat, and play.
