The Avon & Wiltshire Mental Health Partnership have sent us this information to reassure everyone about some works that will take place on their land.
"Over the course of the next 4-6 weeks there will be contractors, equipment and potentially machinery on the site to excavate and lay a footpath. The footpath itself will be 1 meter in width and made of concrete and is essential to allow our staff to carry out their security functions and ensure the integrity of the perimeter fence. We will try and avoid the need for these contractors to cross over or work on the current field, however I have asked the Homes & Communities Agency for permission to do this if required which they have agreed.
I am confident that these works will not have any major effect upon the local environment and can assure you that the current vegetated bank will remain in place to shield the unit in the same manner as it is now."
So if you see work happening in the unit or on the edge of Laundry Field, it is not a serious threat to the field or a prelude to anything sinister.
