Recent speakers have included Marvin Rees (Bristol Mayor), Karin Smyth (Bristol South MP), David Saunders (Extinction Rebellion Elder) and Tony Hall (Bristol Dementia Action Alliance). We have had many presentations on a range of topics including Clean Air, Social Care, Council Tax, Housing Lettings, Equalities, and Bus Services.

As we cannot meet physically at the moment at Broadmead Baptist Church, our Open Forum meetings are virtual, via a Zoom link. All meetings take place on Thursdays between 10.30am and 12.00pm, and as a BOPF member, it would be great if you could join us! The forthcoming Open Forum dates are as follows:

26th November 2020, 25th February 2021 and 29th April 2021

We hope to see you there!!
