Ches Chesney replied to Wolfgang Kuchler's discussion Wildflowers versus Picnics
"Des, I'm sure you're absolutely right about the wildflower meadows. I'm just trying to encourage a healthy, critical appraisal and debate of the proposed solution to what is no doubt a problem both of ASB and of adequate…"

Ches Chesney replied to Wolfgang Kuchler's discussion Wildflowers versus Picnics
"Having read the proposals again, I must say I'm concerned by the partisan language used to describe them. It sound very much like the decision has already been made, at least by some... To demonstrate what I mean and in the spirit of playing…"

Ches Chesney replied to Wolfgang Kuchler's discussion Wildflowers versus Picnics
"I agree with you, Wolfgang. What we have here is an attempt to inhibit anti-social behaviour by inhibiting very social behaviour, too. (Phrases like 'throwing out the baby with the bathwater' and 'cutting off our nose to spite our…"

Joel Stokes replied to Ches Chesney's discussion The Cafe is at Risk!
"Presumably the council is under an obligation to consult the local community over these proposals. They are supposedly representing us and are our paid employees and hence answerable to the general public. I would suggest that if enough people were…"

"I would like to add my comments particularly as I dont think I can make the meeting. Previous to Fay and Karen we had an over-priced ice-cream van run by a grumpy woman who short-changed the children. Now we have a delightful cafe that truly…"

Ches Chesney left a comment for Jo Corke
"Thank you Jo. I feel that it is important to make sure people know about the risks implicit in accepting the offer of a semi-permanent cafe building. The council does not have a good record of caring or careful consultation and this is one of those…"

"Hi Ches- I too agree with you. I love the present cafe and the people who run it. it could not be better. the food is excellent, and the atmosphere is quite magical. I love the way they come and then go. I think we should fight to protect what we…"

Ches Chesney commented on Ches Chesney's blog post The Cafe is at Risk!
"Hi admin (I presume that's not your real name!), I think it is important that people have had a chance to think carefully about the situation with the cafe before they arrive (or don't arrive) at the meeting on 4th October. Is there a way…"

admin commented on Ches Chesney's blog post The Cafe is at Risk!
"I agree with everything you have written Ches. Change is not always required. We could end up with poor service, high prices, low quality products and a facility that does not have the ability or wish to serve the local park users. I am happy to…"

Park Development & Consultation

I'd like you imagine, for a moment, that you have returned home to discover a letter from Bristol City Council. They have written to you to inform you of a consultation regarding the constuction of a new motorway. They want to know whether you would prefer it to run past the back of your home or the front. How do you feel about that? What goes through your mind? How do you react?What if you were then told that it was a simply a consultation and that nothing had yet been decided? Would that make…See More

Ches Chesney commented on martin weitz's blog post NEW NOTICE BOARDS -latest progress
"In a park that is divided into three (soon to be four) areas by gates and fences and where dogs are allowed in only one of those areas, it is unreasonable to insist that dogs be kept on leads. If you wish to put up a notice about dogs, by all means…"

With the bowling club consultation fiasco still smoldering, once again we are faced with having to defend ourselves and our community against the 'blitz' of Bristol City Council's approach to 'improvement'. Perhaps what we really need in the park is an air-raid shelter!

For those who haven't yet heard, "BCC Parks dept are planning to offer 5 year contracts for semi-permanent kiosks, and there is an option for three of Bristol parks to…

Hi Ches,

It is on the website as an event. Admin can send an email to all, but it is not normally done. However, it may be appropriate for this meeting. I will check with the chair, John Mayne.
There will be posters in the park about it very soon.
