About the Mead

The idea for the website came from the Southmead Community Plan (also a separate tab on the home page) as residents wanted better communications.  The Plan is divided into 9 chapters and the action group for the Communications Chapter took the idea forward.  The Southmead Development Trust, as a Community Plan partner, sought for, applied for, and won, small amounts of funding to pay for website construction (funded by Wellbeing), as well as a worker to input initial content (funded by Southmead Fourteen).  The Mead Group is currently seeking funds to further develop the functions of the website.

The 'event' listings content on the websiteis generated in to the printed editin of The Mead as a What's On Southmead guide.  

Please help to create and maintain these fantastic community resources by listing everything available and relevant to Southmead residents.  Do post a news item/announcement.   

Please get in touch with us, via the Contact page, with any questions or suggestions.  

With thanks, The Mead team (up-dated September 2017)

The Mead website was funded with thanks to community grants from Neighbourhood Partnerships Wellbeing and Southmead Fourteen funds.
