Action Greater Bedminster is the community partnership for Bedminster and Southville. We work with local councillors, key organisations, local groups and residents to improve our neighbourhood for everyone.


Action Greater Bedminster aims to bring together residents, organisations, groups, charities, businesses and services such as police, NHS, council departments to improve our neighbourhood. Our membership consists of organisations and groups based in BS3.  We try to give everyone the chance to have their say, give advice and support to residents and groups, and combine our resources and ideas to create practical solutions. 

Action Greater Bedminster is managed by a Steering Group elected at our Annual General Meeting. We hold public meetings to discuss particular themes or projects and represent the community’s voice in other forums.  You can find out more about who we are, what we do and how you can get involved here.

Pass the Parcel is back for Christmas 2021

Last year, Pass the Parcel shared over 400 gift bundles with vulnerable individuals, families and children across BS3. This was achieved with the help of some brilliant volunteers, support from the community and enthusiasm from local businesses. We know this year may be just as difficult, if not more so for some people, so our gift donation project is back! 

Organised by members of Action Greater Bedminster, St Paul’s Church and the BS3 Covid Response Group, this winter we are coming together once again, to reach as many of those in need as we can and to ensure they get a little something special this Christmas. 

Pass the Parcel is now LIVE and we are joyfully accepting donations until 1 December. 

The Wishlist features a lovely selection of items that are available to purchase from local retailers. Once purchased, we will ensure that your gift is given to the appropriate recipient to open at Christmas. You will be able to purchase gifts online and in store, and using our local resources means that all money spent goes back into our community. 

You can also donate any amount of money via our fundraising page.   

So go on, share a little Christmas sparkle with others this winter.
