Thanks to all the hard work from our Gardening Volunteer Team, the “Your Park” volunteers, and  to Jane Robson from the Parks team, whose initial idea it was, we were awarded the winners certificate  in the Community Connectors category for the Fernery. This has been taking shape over the last three months between the loos and the main entrance on Henrietta Street. We have been clearing the patch of laurel surrounding the logs and stumps of trees cut down and trimmed over the last year, and which provided shelter for unlicensed commercial activities. We will be cutting and arranging logs, bringing our some stone from the compound, spreading compost and chippings, and then sowing with a range of woodland herbaceous plants but primarily ferns. We may plant two small native trees to provide some shade, say Sorbus aria, the Whitebeam, several species of which are native to the Avon  Gorge. The full write up will appear in our awards pages soon.

A splendid event in the newly refurbished Beacon was much appreciated,  and thanks go to the Bristol and Bath Your Parks team for providing so much support now that the Council have cut the Parks team so much. The street photo shows we were definitely in Bristol…
