Thank you Bristol Noise 2017

Dear Bristol Noise,

Having invited you to Knowle West (firstly on behalf of the Lee Abbey community and then formally on behalf of Knowle West Churches Together), it was great to be part of the first ever ‘Noise’ in South Bristol, showing God’s love in practical ways:

On 1 May 2017, ‘Noise’ projects across Knowle West helped in peoples’ homes and gardens, helped remove litter, helped paint railings and helped prepare a new community space at Filwood Community Centre.

The afternoon family fun day saw over 200 residents join in the fun (my photos below – more on Facebook) including face painting, food, drink, crafts and bouncy castles (even gladiators and an inflatable assault course) – oh and a free thunder and lightning display followed by a rainbow over Filwood Park.

Thank you for the Noise in Knowle West 2017. There has been such positive feedback from volunteers and residents that on behalf of Knowle West Churches Together I am very pleased to say: see you next year 3-7 April 2018 as part of Hope Bristol 2018!

Best wishes,


Ed Palairet
