Told by Our Members
“So much fun! It’s amazing how quickly you see and feel results! As a gym dodger who had only ever ran for a bus, who hated mud, and looked forward to long weekend lay-ins, my friends laughed when I said I was doing a BMF trial session. 2 months later I haven’t missed a session (aside from when away - even went to one in London!) and look forward to getting out in the fresh air at the weekend! Recommended to everyone!”

Yellow Fish: Water Pollution Awareness Action
10am - 10:45am

About Yellow Fish
The Yellow Fish Project is a global awareness campaign to highlight the issue of water pollution from storm drains.
It helps to remind people that pollutants such as soaps, oils and chemicals that are washed down storm drains are likely to be transferred directly to the water course with negative consequences.
These affect fish spawning areas, prevent the absorption of oxygen causing fish and other wildlife to suffocate, and are directly toxic to aquatic life.
How you can help
On Saturday 14th April 2018 from 10am and 11am, we will be visiting Locksbrook Road, Bath, stencilling the Yellow Fish symbol on major storm drains using an eco-friendly, temporary spray paint.
We need 2 small groups of volunteers to help with this project by spending 45 minutes helping to stencil the Yellow Fish symbol and spread the word (social media, posters etc.).
Other info
We will provide the necessary equipment (stencils, spray paint, hi vis jackets, wet paint signs, risk assessments etc.) all you have to do is get involved!
This event will take place whatever the weather!

Pauper Graves Guided Walk by Bristol Radical History Group
The Bath & Bristol Everything Meetup Group
12pm - 2pm

Join Dr Roger Ball of the Eastville Workhouse Memorial Group to learn more about funeral ceremonies during the Victorian period.

Elaborate funeral ceremonies became very important to middle-class Victorians, with increasingly meticulous rituals designed to mark the passing of family members. However, for the Victorian poor, things were very different.

After the introduction of the 1834 Poor Law Act the customary pauper funeral, subsidised by the parish, came under government scrutiny as a financial and symbolic ‘extravagance’. Instead the need for Poor Law Unions to both save money and demonstrate disgrace in death of those who had ‘surrendered to poverty’ became paramount. This new approach was reflected in the death and burial practices within the workhouse system.

Building on continuing research into Eastville Workhouse at 100 Fishponds Rd, the 4000+ unmarked pauper graves at Rosemary Green and nearby Greenbank Cemetery; this walk contrasts in death, the treatment of the Victorian rich and poor.

Meet at pedestrian entrance to East Trees Health Centre, 100a Fishponds Rd, Bristol BS5 6SD.

This walk includes going down some grassy slopes, so please bring appropriate footwear.

BRHG’s fee for the walk - £3 each payable due Saturday 7th April to the BBE Meetup bank account.

Gather for food, conversation & drinks by candle-light....
The Bath & Bristol Everything Meetup Group
7pm - 11pm

Time for the second gathering at The Bear for dinner by candle-light in 2018.

Those of you that have attended before.... its a good event... as you keep coming back for more... :-) Those of you who have not tried it before.... why not come along this time to see what your missing...????

Formally 'The Bear', then 'Zazu's Kitchen', now back to 'The Bear', the establishment offers vibrant gastropub style food and a modern, minimalist ambiance... and by candlelight..!!!

We sit for dinner prompt at 8.00pm.

I will let you have details of the menu a week or so before-hand, as the current menu is more than likely to change before the event and I will be taking a pre-order for the food, so its easier for the chef (and us) on the night. :-)

If your driving, there is limited parking to the rear of The Bear, but parking can be found in the adjacent Bloomfield Avenue.... If your coming into Bath on public transport, you can get the number 3 or 4 bus from the bus station and both stop across the road from the Bear.

See you on the 14th...... :-)
