Winter can be fun. Snow, Christmas, New Year, and all that jazz. Lots of spending time with family, drinking and having a good time. However, the weather can put a heavy strain on your heating systems, for a variety of reasons, and it’s the worst possible time for heating systems to go down.

They are now targeting B2B as the next stage of thier expansion plans and encouraging local enterprises to procure more of their requirements locally and it will follow that the more local businesses involved the more places individual account holders can spend their Bristol Pounds.

They have also launched an app to make it asier when using the text to pay system and you can also pay by BACS as well as with the Bristol pound notes.

The private road between Bristol & Bath celebrated its 100,000th visitor last week. At £2 per time it has now raised 2/3rd of the construction and running costs and it would appear Bristols first privately run toll rd in over 100 years is on course to make a profit before christmas when the A431 at Kelston is forecast to reopen after extensive works to rectify landslip.


Bristol is European green capital in 2015 and as part of the celebrations a 875 yard zip wire is planned across the Avon Gorge. The wire would run from the Clifton observatory on one side towards Southville on the other and underneath the suspension bridge.

It is estimated riders could reach speeds of 60-70 mph and the experience would last about 60 seconds.

Talks are being held with a Welsh company who operate a similar scheme in Snowdonia and the idea is well advanced although a planning application would need to be approved.


Developers are hoping to create over 2500 jobs for bath with the redevelopment of the north and south Bath quays.

With funding from the new city regions deal and in conjunction with the LEP. Bath & North East Somerset would seek to create a seed environment for businesses in the creative, digital and knowledge sectors along with desperately needed affordable housing.

The university of Bath would have an important role to play, it already has an innovation centre on Broad quay and would look to expand and be at the heart of future developments.


Dyson cleaner

Dyson, the world famous vacuum cleaners manufacturer has had plans approved to double the size of its factory in Malmesbury which could lead to an increase of around 5000 additional staff by 2024.

The research and development facility, together with a canteen, carpark and administration headquarters would add three new buildings near Tetbury hill the site of its existing factory, all on green field land close to the Cotswolds.

However the economic benefit of the plans far outweighed objections from local residents and businesses.

Work is expected to commence shortly
