December update


A brief video from Tamsin, Co-Chair of our management committee on what's happening at the community centre now that Bristol is under Tier 3 covid restrictions.

We remain closed for most activities but are able to open for our parent support groups and some organised children's activities. You can keep up to date with what's on and how to book through our Facebook page.

If you need to self-isolate and need help with shopping or prescriptions, call the We Are Bristol helpline on 0800 694 0184. They can also give information about the £500 payment available to people on low incomes if you are unable to work due to having to isolate.

If you'd like to support St George Community Association during this tricky time, we have set up a Just Giving page: www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/stgeorgecommunity. We really appreciate your help.

Free Nature Explorer kits!


We're excited to tell you about the FREE Nature Explorer kits now available from My Wild Child and Avon Wildlife Trust.

Each kit contains a range of activities for under 5s (siblings might enjoy them too!), and each new activity will link to a video which AWT will post once a fortnight, so stay tuned! Here's Freya from AWT explaining a little about the kits and the first activity! Link to youtube

You can collect a kit from the St George Community Centre yard. You’ll need to use your owl eyes to find the little plastic shed (next to the bigger wooden shed). There’s a special combination code padlock. To find out the code please email freya.morgan@avonwildlife.org.uk or join the My Wild Child Facebook group.
