Councillor

The Bishopston Society is ideally placed to take on the role of Bishopston’s “community hub”, or at least that’s a prospect emerging from the Society’s recent Annual General Meeting.

Contributors, including local councillors, helped us to get to grips with the changing political and economic landscape, and its impact on Bishopston’s communities and wellbeing. They supported The Bishopston Society’s work emphatically and spoke of the opportunity for it to develop into an “anchor” or “hub” role.
