Following the June 2008 open meeting at the Bedminster Cricket Club on Clanage Road, a new Bower Ashton Residents Association (BARA) committee was formed to represent the Bower Ashton community.

Its been a busy six years since then and many changes seem likely in the future. To keep in touch see these notes on the news and comments pages. A summary of recent news is shown on the right hand side of most pages on this website.

Bower Ashton Community Plan

As part of an initiative from the Greater Bedminster Community Partnership, Bower Ashton like other areas in the partnership is developing a community plan, your comments and suggestions are very welcome - to comment use the form or email link below.

Bower Ashton Community Plan

About the Residents Association

BARA was first formed in 1998 and the current committee do give our thanks to the many residents past and present who have worked hard for our community.

If you haven't joined yet, all residents, organisations or businesses with a Bower Ashton address are invited to join in and receive information (it is free). We would like to receive everyone's input and opinions and keep you posted.

The BARA committee aims to meet every month (apart from December and August).

If you are curious and want to now what's going on, we welcome residents attending - but do let us now if you want to discuss problems as we need to allocate time for this.

If you have a little time to help and want a voice in what is happening we welcome new committee members too.

If you are a resident and just curious or if you would like to know more before getting involved contact me (Peter). You are welcome to attend a meeting to see what goes on without committing yourself to anything more - see the contact information at the end of this page.

There is also a lot of general information on the Bower Ashton website.
