The free community newsletter for all things Brislington

BRIZ is a twelve page physical newsletter, developed by the BRIZ volunteer editorial team. The content is about all things Brislington, touching on local curiosity, local actions, local groups, local creativity, and a double page spread of free and affordable listing happening.

The newsletter it led by Bricks, with the support and contributions from local residents, either through content contribution, editorial support, and distribution planning and actioning. There are also spaces for local organisations and businesses to advertise their services in the magazine for an affordable rate.

BRIZ is produced by Bricks, designed by Studiomothership, and printed by Taylor Brothers.

So far, there has been a Winter issue and Spring issue, with the hopes to continue the newsletter into the future.
