Bike ride for Bristol Refugee Festival

Bristol Refugee Festival Events

As part of Refugee Week and Bristol Refugee Festival, 2018 ACH are running three events to celebrate the integration and contribution of refugees in the city.

ACH Bike Ride

We are continuing our tradition of organising an annual bike ride along the Bristol to Bath cycle path. The day is open to all and we especially encourage volunteers to cycle with us and our tenants from Easton, Bristol to Saltford. The ride takes roughly 45 minutes and at the other end, we will have a BBQ, drinks and games waiting for everyone to enjoy the (hopefully) sunny weather!

The bike ride will take place on 21st June at 11 am leaving from Easton Business Centre. The approximate finish time will be 5 pm, but people may come and leave as they want.

ACH 10 year celebration

This year we have celebrated our 10th birthday and what better way to celebrate it than throwing a big party or two! In April we held an event at the Radisson Blu for our 10 year anniversary which was fantastic, with lots of speakers and networking opportunities. This event will be different as it will involve more of our tenants and learners and be a celebration of them.

The event will be held at Barton Hill Settlement on the 27th June 12.30-4pm.

Arts and Craft Session

Our final event will be a Women and Children arts and craft session held at our Himilo Training Room on Ashley Road, St Pauls from 10 am to 12 pm on 28th June.

The session will include lots of arty activities, cake and refreshments. We encourage people to bring their own crafts or any knowledge they have to share with the group and hopefully we can all learn something new!
