Chandos Rd Street Festival

68c0adfc-7550-423d-b40c-b46ee106ff2cThis was the third street festival in Chandos Road, timed to coincide with the return of our student population and the last rays of summer sun. At least, that was the theory! We started off with a sharp shower as we set up, but miraculously as folks arrived and the Lord Mayor opened proceedings, the sun came out and shone through the afternoon.

ec3df007-2a7b-4591-bc9e-a403a048665c Events were announced in style by our Town Cryer, David Fry. We had the usual mix of great stalls for children and adults alike, including our own Chandos Neighbourhood Association bric-a-brac stall, which raised £220 for funds.



There was a puppet show, face painting and wonderful live music and entertainment on the two stages. When thirst or hunger hit, there were our cafés, shops and bars serving a great variety of snacks and drinks.

All in all, a great day on Chandos Road organised again by the Chandos Road Traders!

Bus Service

There will be an open meeting with the Managing Director of First Bus in Redland Library on Monday 12th September at 7pm. This will be an opportunity to discuss the reduction in frequency and the split of the route of the Nos 8 & 9 service between Temple Meads and Redland/Clifton. The issue is that the services are being reduced to a half-hourly service from 5 per hour and are being separated, so from Redland we will no longer be able to go to Clifton without changing buses. This is for a trial period, to be reviewed in October.

Residents will also note that the No 19 Wessex service has stopped.
