Southville’s Labour Councillor, Sean Beynon, and local Labour campaigner and resident, Celia Phipps, have backed a petition calling for Southville Methodist Church & hall (also known as FaithSpace) to be saved for community use.
“This building has been well used by the local community for a wide range of activities for many years. We are very lucky to have such a vibrant community in Southville and the loss of Faithspace for community use would be a real shame. That is why I have signed the petition and encourage others to do so too - calling on Bristol City Council to ensure the space is listed as an asset of community value.
I understand that the nomination to make the FaithSpace building an asset of community value has recently been approved. I welcome this decision and hope the current owners and the City Council will engage with local community groups to ensure the long term use of the building by the community is secured.”
