Monthly Meeting with Local Police

P.C. Ben Blackmore has set up local residents group meetings within the greater Bedminster area. These groups are designed to give residents the opportunity to speak face to face with a Police Officer, someone from Bristol City Council, as well as other agencies upon request.

A number of these groups are now running in South Bristol and have changed many things in their areas from road markings to adding bins and benches to communal areas.

The groups hold a one hour meeting once a month and a new one is taking place here at the Community Centre from 6-7pm on every third Tuesday in the month.

If you have any issues you would like to bring attention to, please attend the meeting or contact P.C. Blackmore on 07889 656856. Please note this is not a number to report crime – that should be done the normal way by phone on 101 or 999.

New defibrillator at WHCA

We now have a defibrillator installed at the front of our building on Vivian St, thanks to support from community campaigner Simon Brookes and a generous donation.

The defibrillator is for anyone to use – in an emergency, 999 will be able to give you the code to open it up.

AGMs 2021

AGMs for the Windmill Hill Community Association and the Windmill Hill Social Club (which runs the bar) will be held on Thursday 30th September commencing at 8pm. The bar will be open from 7.30pm.

Memberships finishing on 30th September 2021 will now be extended to 30th September 2022 due to the extent of time the Community Centre and Social Club were closed during Covid. Although no fees will be payable, we will still renew your membership cards before the AGM begins.

The AGM is to elect the Officers on the Committee, to report on the past year at the Community Centre, and to receive the financial accounts. Notices are up on the noticeboard at the Community Centre if you want to nominate anyone for an Officer position.

The meeting will be held in the Small Hall and doors will be open to allow ventilation, and tables and surfaces will be treated with antiviral spray. We are still encouraging the use of face masks while moving around the building.
