Bristol Live has launched a brand new Whatsapp community to bring you the biggest news from in and around Bristol straight to your phone. From breaking incidents to the stories everyone in Bristol is talking about, being part of our new Whatsapp community will be the fastest way to get Bristol's biggest stories.

We're excited to bring our audience the most up-to-date news. You will need to have WhatsApp installed on your phone to join.

No one else in the community will be able to see your personal information and you will only receive messages from Bristol Live. We will not spam your WhatsApp feed with constant messages, but you will receive updates from us daily.

We also treat our community members to special offers, promotions, and adverts from us and our partners.

You can join our free Whatsapp community just by clicking this link and start receiving updates straight away.

If for some reason you decide you no longer want to be in our community, you can leave by clicking on the name at the top of your screen and clicking 'Exit Group'.

We have also launched, especially for summer 2023, a Whatsapp community dedicated to Bristol International Balloon Fiesta. You can join that community here (with the same terms and conditions as above) and start receiving useful information about the Fiesta from the latest weather forecasts, traffic and travel updates, information on mass ascents and of course stunning images from the weekend itself.
