The Street Party kit needs a new home

Several years ago, Sustainable Redland supporters set up a borrowing service for people holding street parties.

The street party kit includes road signs, bollards, bunting and other useful items that can be used to close off, decorate and hold an event in a residential street. The kit was bought using one of the first grants awarded by our local Bishopston, Cotham and Redland Neighbourhood Partnership.

The service has been very well used, with around 20 street events each year in our area making use of the kit. You can find out more at the Bristol Open Streets website.

For the past two years, the kit has been hosted by Bristol Children’s Scrapstore. However, they are not able to offer to do so after this season. So we are looking for a new home for the kit.

If you, or someone you know, has a small storage space (about 1m x 2m) and would like to support local events, please get in touch. Looking after the kit would also involve liaising with those holding events to collect and return what they needed for their event, at mutually convenient times. Most events are held in June or September, so it needn’t interfere with summer holidays. It is also a role that in the past has been shared amongst two or more people.

To talk through what might be involved, with no obligation, please contact us.
