An afternoon at Bristol Science Park

Twenty Civic Society members were treated to a tour of the Bristol & Bath Science Park at Emersons Green. First, we assembled in the flagship National Composites Centre and were given an introduction to its exciting ambitions.

Being Brunel: SS Great Britain launches a new museum

Ahoy there! It’s 9th January and for 25 Civic Society members, time to board the world’s first iron-hulled, ocean-going, propeller-driven ship.

St Michael’s

Update January 2018: The Civic Society is leading a partnership bid for ownership of this fire damaged church. The bid was lodged with agents acting for the Diocese in mid December and we have recently heard that we have been invited for interview on Monday 15th January.
