FOHC is currently working on a range of Projects and Campaigns.
One of our long-term priorities is to bring the wonderful Ardagh site - in the centre of Horfield Common - back into full use as a high quality, sustainable community and sports facility for the benefit of local people.
Below are some images of community events and activities that take place at the Ardagh
If you would like to make a donation to support our work to bring the Ardagh back into full use, you can through our shop/donate page.
Along side 'Project Ardagh' we are working on a series of other projects - both short and long-term - which support our group's purpose 'to ensure continued access to, availability of, and improvement of the state of Horfield Common, including the Ardagh for the benefit of the local community and other users.'
This work builds on a series of successful outcomes achieved since FOHC was formed in 2006. This has included:
