Plastic Free...

Lucy Siegle's "Ethical Living" from 29th Oct Observer had an excellent article on plastic pollution of our waterways, specifically relating to sanitary products. It highlighted the great work of a Bristol based initiative called City to Sea whose videos are certainly worth watching. Have a look! I will certainly be passing it on to my daughter, and encourage my daughter to pass on to her peers.

Get active!

A very practical accessible article on exercise from last week's Guardian, flagged up by our wonderful osteopath Barbara.



Move over art trails... The Bristol Yoga Trail is happening this coming Sat 14th October, when six of our city's independent yoga studios open their doors for free sessions, covering many different styles of yoga. From 8am to 7pm, there is a diverse timetable making up 37 classes in BS7 BS6 BS3 and BS2. There is no need to book, so just drop in and enjoy. All the classes are suitable for beginners, so do have a look at the timetable and map on the link below.


More classes may be added nearer the time, so visit bristolyogatrail.wordpress.com

"The Shorter you Sleep, the Shorter your Life."

This is one of the most compelling articles (from last Sunday's Observer) I have read in a long time. Slightly unnerving, but nonetheless something that we can all address and do something about.

The line, by neuroscientist Matthew Walker: "Without sleep, there is low energy and disease. With sleep, there is vitality and health" seems to me a mantra we should all have on the fridge, if not our bedroom walls. The argument for quality and quantity of sleep is so well argued and articulated, I may even get my children to take it onboard. Here's hoping...

Bike Racks coming to Chandos Rd?... here's hoping, so please sign the petition to help make it happen!

Many of our patients arrive by bike, but where to lock them up is an on-going problem. Most people use the church railings a few yards down, but this isn't great. Finally, after much badgering of the council, a petition is underway to get some proper bike racks installed on Chandos Rd. Please sign the petition link, and spread the word.

And, if you've ever forgotten your bike lock, we keep one in the clinic, which you are always welcome to use, so just ask Pat or Deb on reception.


Chandos Road Street Festival this coming Sunday 24th Sept 2017.

We do hope you will be able to come to Chandos Rd this coming Sunday 24th Sept from 12-6pm, for our annual street festival, now firmly established in it's 4th year. This event is completely free to attend so bring friends and family along for a cracking afternoon. For the youngsters (and young at heart) there will be a puppet show and face painting; also an array of stalls, including bric-a-brac, plus two live music stages, one of which will feature the legendary funk combo "Gee Baby I Love You". Of course, there will be loads of foodie offerings at our many cafes restaurants and bars. A highlight will be from our wonderful local neighbour Chums, who is pulling out all the stops over the entire weekend...
