Ardagh Community Trust, Bristol
Creating a community-led future for The Ardagh at the heart of Horfield Common.
Ardagh Community Trust (ACT) is a charity, led by local volunteers. ACT manages the Ardagh site for the benefit of the Horfield Common community. ACT generates income through social enterprise activities including the Café on the Common which is open daily from 10am – 5pm.
During the winter months, the wider site is open from 9am – 5.30pm. At the beginning of April opening hours are extended to 7pm in line with seasonal time changes.
ACT provides volunteering opportunities, sports, leisure and wellbeing facilities. In addition, we have public gardens, space for community activities (including gardening, a Repair Café and a range of events and performances)and a community hub and café, open daily.
ACT is working to improve the quality and availability of the facilities available at The Ardagh for this, and for future generations.
