This is the online zone for our regular monthly feature: Bristol’s Backbone.

Every Month, Anna-May Richards will be bringing you the voices which keep this city ticking over. We all enjoy Bristol for many different reasons. For some it’s the market stalls in town, the local pub, or a favourite place to dance. There are people behind these places with more to share than you may initially think. Is it the artists, musicians and performers who make Bristol what it is? Or is it the nature of the people behind the scenes? Realistically, it’s probably a combination of the two, but there is a huge section of society who remain unheard. We want to tell the fascinating and sometimes dark stories of the unheard people. Those who have so much to say, but do not usually have the platform to do so. It’s time to hear from Bristol’s Backbone: the citizens whose stories we would never usually know.
