The Ashley Network is a bi-monthly event and is about people coming together to make things happen in the Ashley Ward: The event is part of the Imagine St Pauls Legacy, a successful Sustrans Avon & Somerset Police Partnership funded project, 2015-2017, that brought groups of local people together to improve their environments in St Pauls and Montpelier & enhance their daily lives. Each group was keen to create a network of support and encouragement to continue the legacy of coming together to make things happen beyond the life of the Imagine St Pauls Project.
Host an event : Each Ashley Network event is hosted by a different group / organisation who may also provide the venue or work with another group / organisation to provide the venue.
Open to all those living and working in the Ashley Ward:
- Engage in informal conversation with others about your project, group, organisation.
- Connect, support, encourage, inspire, collaborate, share ideas, experience, achievements, struggles.
