Baggator Nexus is a collection of groups & people dedicated to citizen empowerment in Easton, Bristol. Everyone deserves an equal voice in the future.
Stop Press: These are our intentions - we are actively exploring ways to realise them on the first day of lock-down [24th Marsh 2020]
We're repurposing The Pickle Factory [13 All Hallows Road, BS5 0RP] to support our friends and neighbours in the face of COVID-19. Services are moving into the following pods
- Food production for vulnerable/isolated/ill neighbours via teams like Super Supper Club
- Supplies distribution in tandem with 1 above
- Communications hub. We've got a fast broadband link that can support local groups comms, and remote Youth & Community work
Where ever possible, we are working remotely from home.
To do this, we are planning:
We are working with several groups and organisations including
- All Hallows Hall
- Bristol Muslim Cultural Society,
- National Food Service
- ACORN, RADE
- Marsh Maker
- Peace of Art
Baggator has worked in the local community from its inseption in 1999 to meet concerns expressed by parents and young people for the provision of a friendly and safe out of school environment for young people. We attract a representative cross section of the diverse cultural mix in the locality. We also collaborate with local youth groups, schools, employers and other agencies.
Baggator offers a range of innovative programmes for young people in the local area. These activities encompass Health, Arts, Sports, Bicycle Maintenance, ICT, Cultural Exchanges (Leipzig, Germany 2010 & 2011) Camps & Residential visits (Exmoor 2010 & Southern Ireland 2011) and Heritage projects.
