Bedminster station is just a five minute walk from the farm - if coming from Weston the trains are direct. Otherwise it's an easy change at Temple Meads, or if you're feeling fit you can walk all the way to Bedminster from Temple Meads - it's under a mile.
Some bucolic shots of the farm!
The New Somerset and Dorset Annual General Meeting for 2012 will take place at the Windmill Hill City Farm, Philip Street, Bedminster, BRISTOL, BS3 4EA.
Entry to the farm is free but donations are welcomed! There is an excellent cafe on site which does hot and cold food. This is a great place for the kids too.
The meeting will run from 14.00 to 15.00 on Saturday, 21 January 2012. The meeting will take place in the John James Room. We have the room from 13.30 to 15.30 so there will be time to talk before and after the meeting.
All members are encouraged to attend - this will be our first AGM.
The last big meeting of the New S&D was in Bournemouth and all previous meetings took place in Blandford. We felt it was important to have the AGM near a working railway station but attempts to find somewhere at Templecombe proved a dead end. So we chose Bristol this time to make it easier for members at the northern end of the route to get to. Unfortunately with a line almost 100 miles long at least some meetings will be quite a distant from where members live! The farm is an excellent sustainable initiative so it's great to be able to support them. We'll ensure that the 2013 AGM takes place in the Bournemouth/Poole area. Hopefully as time passes there will be more places on the route reconnected to the network so we have a wider range of options!
Please do try to attend. The energy crisis is now becoming apparent to everybody (apart from our local and national politicians!) so we feel that we are all going to have to work harder in the coming years - so if you have the time and/or skills to get actively involved we have plenty for you to do!
I'll set up a Facebook group shortly so you can set up car shares etc = I'll announce on this blog when done.
