Thursday 27th June: A celebration of achievements so far, of the collaboration between Bristol Pound members and team in supporting locally owned independent businesses, building stronger communities and a fairer greener economy
We are delighted to announce a special Bristol Pound TXT2PAY agreement with Big Green Week, so you can buy advance tickets using £Bs before the Festival starts on 15th June. And what is more, BIG Green Week are giving Bristol Pound customers £1 off every ticket bought using £B TXT2PAY!
The Bristol Pound is overjoyed to be partnering with Sunrise Festival in bringing the regional currency to the field.
Bristol City Council support for the £B grows as new ‘City Director’ accepts £5000 of wage in local currency
Newly appointed Bristol City Director, Nicola Yates, who will act as professional head of staff, will be accepting £5000 of her wage in Bristol Pounds.
Over £100,000 has been deposited in Bristol Pound accounts! The 5% bonus has now reached the £5,000 limit on total payments, so it is no longer being applied to deposits to Bristol Pound accounts.
On Friday 15th March, three Bristol MPs - Charlotte Leslie, Kerry McCarthy and Stephen Williams – visited Bristol Credit Union to open their Bristol Pound accounts. Each MP has committed to spending a minimum of £B50 per month from their own Parliamentary salaries and with their £B accounts they will be able to spend it by texting from their mobile phones.
An important TXT2PAY announcement.
