The Christmas season at St Nick's will offer plenty of variety for local people, their friends and families.

Our unique blend of independent stalls offering quirky crafts, gifts and produce is a good for the soul, and a feast for the senses. Up until 3pm Christmas Eve we'll have special themed markets and features to choose from:

  • Bristol Vegan & Well-being Market. Bristol's only dedicated Vegan Market takes place on Corn St every Monday from 10am-3pm. Expect an array of plant-powered goodness guaranteed to get your week off to the right start. Come by for delicious street food options, sweet treats and a great selection of fresh produce, ferments and vegan essentials.
  • Sunday opening from 18 November through to Christmas Eve
  • a Fair Saturday arts performance on 24 November, in support of SANDS charity. A great day to explore a maze of quirky stalls, street food and historic architecture in the heart of the old city. 
  • We've been trading since 1743 and mark our 275th anniversary this year. Help us celebrate on 7 and 8 December at our Night Market and Light Projections events.

All our markets and themed events are listed at http://bit.ly/StNicksXmas.

Third Sector Importance in delivering Statutory Services to Children and Young People

PROSPECT has become increasingly aware that Local Authorities are more and more relying on the input of Not for Profit organisations to provide statutory services, yet as a sector we do not have representation through professional associations.

On top of that these Not for Profit sector organisations often deal with the most problematic and vulnerable members of our society and as such individual workers put themselves in a difficult position and could be subjected to allegations made by the client group, without having the backup of a union to defend them.

PROSPECT is organising an event for people working in the Not for Profit sector to hear how important is to have your voice heard, as well as to hear the mayor's views on the importance of this secotr in the delivery of statutory services.

Come along on 5 October to this event.  Enjoy refreshments, listen to the Mayor and Prosect staff and representatives.

Where: Learning Partnership West, Princess Street, Bristol BS3 4AG

 

When: Wednesday 5 October 2016 16:00 - 18:00 (mayor speaking at 17:00)

To help with catering it would be helpful if we knew how many people to expect.

Please email Esther on dagepk@blueyonder.co.uk or phone: 07811723427

Relocate your service and reduce operational costs

We are all aware that the city has the difficult task of implementing more cuts to public services due to the recent budget announcements, as usual this will hit the voluntary sector pretty hard. Unfortunately several organisations have had to close their doors because their funding has ceased or they are now receiving reduced core funding.

Phoenix Social Enterprise would like to extend an invitation to those agencies to consider relocating their operations to our premises. We have a small number of office space available and hot desking facilities at your disposal.

By moving into Phoenix Social Enterprise your organisation would indeed reduce the operational overheads therefore leaving more finance for staff costs and service delivery. “I hear what you are thinking where is the benefit in relocation”below are some benefits you might want to consider, these are as follows:

1.            Reduced heating and lighting bills

2.            Reduced maintenance costs

3.            Reduced water and sewerage costs

4.            Reduced refuse collection costs

5.            Reduced broadband costs

6.            Reduced printing and stationary costs

7.            Reduced bookkeeping and accountancy costs

Other opportunities that are worth consideration are working in partnership to submit funding bids, being based in an organisation that has facilities for events and meeting space, creating a central community hub of activities that can be accessed by all and the sharing of information, technology and practices.

If you are an organisation facing budgeting difficulties due to reduced core funding and are concerned with the future your service and feel that it may be time to consider moving premises to reduce your overheads, you can contact me during office hours for a chat.
