Talk of Totterdown issue 44 – Spring 2017

In this latest issue we celebrate the fantastic news that Totterdown Children’s Community Workshop have been awarded an ‘Outstanding’ Ofsted report. TCCW is a registered charity, run by a voluntary management committee. The award is excellent news and very well deserved by all those involved, including the Play Leaders and co-ordinators who work so hard to create a fun and vibrant after school and holiday club in Totterdown.

TRESA continues to campaign on behalf of the community – recently we have been pushing hard for Bristol City Council to honour their agreement to use S106 monies to help fund a solution to problems with rat-running up Stanley Hill. The number of vehicles racing through, particularly at evening rush hour, is a nightmare and has led to vehicle damage for residents and a number of near serious accidents. Something needs to be done. And soon. And TRESA will continue fighting for an answer!

With Spring around the corner there are lots of opportunities to  join with us in community events – regular tidy ups, our gardening club and plenty more besides – keep an eye on the events section of the website for updates. We also invite you to join us for our public meetings which take place every other month. We have organised a great programme of speakers for this year, starting on March 15 at the Star and Dove with a representative from Community Access Support Service (CASS) who will talk about their work in the city and a new Emotional Wellbeing Fund being offered to help combat the issue of poor mental health amongst young people.

Get involved!
