A Shining example! So let’s protect sports hall


Shine Sports is a beacon of sporting success for Bristol.

Run by local people, for local people, Shine provides after- school clubs and great-quality sports activities for hundreds of children across our community, and it is growing in popularity every day.

But now Shine is on a mission to save their sports hall from being knocked down. Current Council plans would mean the popular sports hall is knocked down to make way for a car-park for new flats.

It is used not only by Shine but by other groups, including several local badminton clubs who have also expressed their fears to Charlotte

Local campaigner and keen sports fan Charlotte is supporting Shine all the way, organising meetings with the Council and taking Shine’s plight to the elected Mayor.

She said: “ In a year where Bristol is supposedly a ‘City of Sport’, we should be celebrating an outstanding organisation like Shine, not knocking down their sports hall. We lost the Robin Cousins Centre – we can’t let another valuable sports hall go the same way.”
