13-09-2013 : SPEND THE BRISTOL POUND ON A CANAL BOAT HOLIDAY

A year ago the city of Bristol launched its own currency which cannot even be used in neighbouring Bath let alone Berlin or Bombay.

More than 350 firms in Bristol signed up to the scheme making it the UKs largest alternative to sterling.

The idea was to lock the money into the city rather than it going into the international finance system and Was launched to help local traders by issuing money which customers can only use in their shops.

Recently the Bristol pound was accepted by First Bus operator and it is thought to be the only bus company in the UK to sign up to a local currency scheme.

For a chance to spend the Bristol pound book a Canal Boat Holiday from Hilperton.

Whilst in Bristol spend the Bristol Pound and enjoy the host of other attractions that the city can offer.

Bring science to life At Bristol visit a live show in the Planetarium or create your own TV show, meet Wallace and Gromit and become an animator for the day.

Visit the zoo which is set in 12 acres of award winning gardens.

If you want to shop on your Canal Boat Holiday then Bristol is a shoppers dream.
