The Ashley Network is about coming together and making things happen. It is a valuable bi-monthly event for residents, emerging from the legacy of Imagine St Pauls. The aim is of the Network is primarily to facilitate spontaneous connections and conversations between groups and individuals. There is no specific agenda.
Each week, it is hosted by a different group or organisation who may also provide the venue or alternatively work with others to find a suitable location.
The Network is open to all those living and working in the Ashley Ward.
It is an opportunity:
- for informal conversation with others about your project, group, organisation.
- to connect, support, encourage, inspire.
- to share ideas, experience, achievements, struggles.
- to host an event and provide a venue.
The events held so far on 15th February and 5th May have both been hosted by Friends of St Agnes Park, with the venue provided by the St Pauls Learning Centre. These events have been successful in bringing a range of residents, community groups and other organisations together in conversation, with commitments forthcoming to share and undertake the hosting role and venue provision.
The Network’s next event is on Thursday, 29th June 2017 from 1pm to 2pm
. The host and venue will be confirmed by The Bristol Drug Project at Brunswick Square.
Friends of St Agnes Park,
