Last week, the whole of the Bristol Pound team came together to officially pat each other on the back and enjoy a delicious meal at Zazu’s Kitchen, one of our new Bristol Pound businesses.
The food was fantastic and the atmosphere perfect for a celebration. It was great having everyone who has contributed to the development of the project, either past or present, together in one room. It is amazing how many different people, from all different walks of life, have made this project possible.
The finale to the evening came when all 20 of us paid for our feast with TXT2PAY. No one had to leave their seats, and each text went through in a matter of seconds. The Zazu’s staff loved it, and were all excited by the speed of the payment. It was great not having to use a card machine. There was no waiting, once we were given our bill and worked out who had eaten (and drunk) what, payments were made from the comfort of our seats.
After a long evening of Bristol Pound bought delicacies, the team made their way back to each of their different areas of Bristol. Some of us walked, some cycled, but only Mark decided it was a good idea to mountain board all the way down Gloucester Road. Farewell Mark.
