On October the 20th folk enjoyed a shared feast at the Lockleaze Banquet

On October the 20th folk enjoyed a shared feast at the Lockleaze Banquet, hosted by Buzz as part of this year’s Healthy City Week. Everyone enjoyed a variety of free delicious healthy meals and many brought along a dish to share with their neighbours.

Thank you to everyone who enjoyed the celebration, it was a great evening!

This feast was the first of many to be hosted by Buzz; there will be a series of six shared lunches on the first Saturday of every month, kicking off on the 5th November at lunchtime (see the next flyer for details). Again all are welcome to bring a dish or simply come along and enjoy free delicious food. Buzz intends to hold this event every month to provide an opportunity to get together and share a meal.

Also during Healthy City Week Buzz hosted a range of events from needle felting to dance workshops. If you wish to organise a community event and would like Buzz to host you, then please email for more details.

In other news, chainsaw sculptor and wood carving expert Andy O’Neill lovingly hand crafted two Buzz bees from UK native oak wood. Both bees have certainly found a happy home at Buzz in the café and garden; Please feel free to come and appreciate the artist’s work!

The Buzz garden now has five new raised beds! They were built and installed by the team from ABC electrification who very kindly donated their time and efforts on Friday 14th October. Their valuable work was continued by young volunteers from the Prince’s Trust, so a BIG thank you to everyone, including our resident Buzz gardening team for helping to establish a beautiful garden that will flourish from the Spring of 2017.

Anyone who is interested in joining the gardening team, please pop into Buzz or call the Buzz team on 0117 2690006, alternatively you can email

Finally, to combat those cold and dark winter mornings, the Buzz café will be opening their doors to provide wholesome breakfasts. There will be a delicious new breakfast and lunch menu as of 1st November and the new opening times will be Tuesday – Friday: 8:30am –5:30pm (not forgetting the first Saturday of every month for a shared lunch!)

The Buzz team look forward to welcoming you for some tasty treats in the near future.
