Delivering Good News to South Bristol

We've Come a Long Way...

The Pigeon was founded way back in 2003 by editor and owner Matt Pawsey

Rapidly approaching its 200th edition, The Pigeon has come a long way since the days of 2003 when local free papers were still very much in their infancy. Since then, and after leading the way in Bristol, The Pigeon is now firmly established in what is a vibrant and cultural part of Bristol that is close to the city centre and home to many families and professionals alike. The neighbourhood is a lively one with plenty to do, a friendly feel, and home to many thriving businesses.
