To: Mayor's consultation on the Budget 2013/2014
This is what I have put in to the consultation:
I attended the Mayor's consultation meeting on 28 November but I didn't feel that the Bear
Pit atmosphere was conducive to making a reasoned comment and getting a simple answer.
It seemed very much that those who shouted the loudest were the ones who got heard.
It is a…Continue
I am going to ask a question generally about Public toilets under threat especially in our parks - yours are not on the list for 'culling' and also not marked on the A-Z - so I am not clear if the council manages them or not. So I am asking the Mayor for some clarity, and if he can reassure you that they are safe at present.
If anyone from FOSAP is there I will try and meet up with you.I will be wearing an IFB badge (Independents for…Continue
Local activist Stella Perrett has submitted a question to Bristol City Council following plans to close 22 public loos as part of its austerity programme. She has asked for clarity on the likely impact on the loos in the park.I will let you know the reply as soon as received.
It is important that the recently refurbished toilets stay open, especially in view of the number of people who use the park in the summer.
Watch this space!
Another very quiet bird walk this morning. Perhaps the mild weather means that many birds are not using the park's food resources. There was also lots of leaves still on the trees which made spotting birds more difficult. The full list is as follows:
Blackbird - 3 or 4 seen
Carrion Crow - a few
Robin - 1 or 2 seen and heard
Goldfinch - just 1 or 2 birds noted

Well once again the birds were playing hard to get this morning. There seemed very little activity during our walk and of course the foliage made spotting any birds rather difficult. The full list is as follows:
Raven - 1 did a circuit of the park, calling and flying surprisingly low.
Jay - up to 3 seen
Great Tit - a few calling and 1 or 2 seen briefly
Carrion Crow - several…Continue

The total income after we receive the final instalment from Bristol City Council will be £5,173.03. Of this we spent £3,982.87. The cost of the memorial itself, including installation, was £3,932.50.
This will leave us with the sum of £1,190.16 for maintenance and improvement to the memorial site area.
The £1,190.16 will be kept in with the FoSAP current account, but treated as ring-fenced funding.
