We hold FAB Cafés across Bristol on a monthly basis. A FAB Café is an opportunity to share a cup of tea (and maybe a slice of cake!) and chat about what is going on in the local area in an informal and relaxed setting. FAB Cafes are open to everyone, you don't need to be a member to attend. Being part of FAB also provides access to special events and discounts across the city – for more information about this watch this space!
FAB volunteers will attend a FAB Café near them regularly, creating a welcoming space for everyone who joins and will share information regarding new events and activities happening near you, drawing from the wealth of information that BAB has created city-wide. Does this sound like something you would like to do? Get in touch!
If you are part of a group that is looking for new members, a FAB Café in your area is a great place to let local people know what you are doing.
