Parks Forum Walk
Members of Bristol Parks Forum enjoyed a walk in the valley recently. We showed them around Snuff Mills first and talked about the People's Millions grant. Some of the other parks groups have also been very successful at raising funds for their local greenspace so they gave us some great advice on how to persuade the Council to put some more money in to the area. We also visited Laundry Field and the forum members could understand why we were concerned about the future of this field. Finally we walked through Grove Wood and shared with them the whole sorry saga about the wood since Mr Jafari bought it just over two years ago. Someone said there has been enough intrigue and drama associated with Grove Wood to make a TV show. Maybe one day we will write it all down. You wouldn't believe some of the things we have discovered or the things that have happened behind the scenes, even over the last month or so, that we are too dignified to make public at this time.
