ACTIVATE was formed in 2004 by a group of local residents with the aim of improving the area for everyone.

Fishponds Park, in the heart of Fishponds shopping centre, is one area we work hard to maintain - both with the general upkeep and care of the flower beds and overall tidiness.

A Sensory Garden has been created and children from local schools have helped in planting spring bulbs surrounding the War Memorial at the centre of the park.

We aim to make the park a welcoming green area for local people, for those who work in the area and for visitors. We hold drop-in lunchtime musical concerts on 2nd Friday each month at Fishponds Methodist Church, Guinea Lane, Fishponds.

See our 'Events' page for some of our other regular activities!

If you would like to get more involved in the community of Fishponds, get in touch and join in!

It is with great sadness that we announce the death of David Elsbury on Thursday 19th March 2015. An enthusiastic supporter of Activate - David founded the Celebration of collecting and was able to fill any gaps with one of his many facinating collections. He tirelessly worked on exhibitions, shows, talks and events for all ages. We will all miss his wit, encouragement, knowledge and boundless energy.
As a mark of our respect for David, a new Memorial trophy has been infroduced to the photography section of the Horticultural show.

A great loss to Fishponds and beyond. Rest in Peace David.
