Capture summer fun on camera

August 16 2016

SUMMER is here and many of our community are taking a well-earned break, none more so that Tony Phillips, who is retiring from Chester Park Junior School after 31 years.

Good wishes to all who are reading this copy of Fishponds Voice on a beach somewhere (not that we’re jealous!). To all those who remain here, don’t despair – there’s still lots going on and plenty more to look forward to.

You could try looking in on the new weekly Fishponds Food Assembly,  which is a refreshing alternative to the big supermarkets that has just opened.

And don’t forget Hillfields Festival on Augusut 6 and the Fishponds horticultural and craft show the following week.

Next month sees the Make Sunday Special event and the sales trail and October will bring Fishfest.

Or, if you fancy getting out and about, how about trying the new Stoke Park Sculpture Trail?

This issue features some great photography from residents young and old – why not send us your pictures from around the area?
