Action not words!

Sometimes we just need to look within and question ourselves, are we talkers or doers? This is an open letter to all concerned. If one really cares about one's community then one does something about it...take action, come up with solutions, support fellow fund raising events and/or join volunteer groups...Quit complaining about council's actions, come up with solutions and submit it!...No matter what the topic may be...if it concerns you and your community do something about it!..well, have a great coming week everyone...

Volunteer clean up

Mandana Sharifi has now taken part in all three of the volunteer days to clean up our city centre. These happen every month and the next one is tentatively scheduled for 15 November.

It is a great way to build community engagement and get locals involved in preserving our city. If you want to know more details please email Mandana at

The events are organised by the City of Bath World Heritage Volunteer group and it is great to see the work they are doing.

Mandana says "I have really enjoyed these volunteer days and it is great to see the improvement that we are making to the city centre. On Sunday [11th Oct ] we painted 40 bollards at the junction of Milsom Street and Green Street until we got caught by the problem we'll continue beautifying our city at the next get together!."

Steps to Weir from Pulteney Bridge

Abbey activist Mandana Sharifi is concerned about the safety of the steps leading down to the weir from Pulteney Bridge. Several of the steps are very shiny and worn and in wet weather are very slippery.
Mandana believes this is an accident waiting to happen - especially on busy rugby match days. She has reported her concerns to the Council and asked them to look at the matter.

graffiti on Binks

The amount of graffiti in the centre of Bath seems to be getting worse. I have reported this example on the side of Binks cafe between [Abbey & Cheap Street] to the Council and asked them to remove it. Graffiti in our town gives a poor message to residents and visitors alike. "There is a direct link between the amount of graffiti and the amount of anti social behaviour and crime." Mandana
"I am happy to report that this issue has now been resolved!" :0) ., Mandana
