Is there support for raising funds to build a communal BBQ installation in the park? It might deter some people from ruining the grass with their portable barbies. Also very social.

Seriously though I think Mary Finnigan's idea of a communal BBQ is a good one
& if it could be made to work then I for one would love to cook some sizzling
sausages on one!!

Hi Mary
The Wellington Bomber Memorial is a separate fund raising project for those that want to support and get involved to remember and mark this very tragic historical event and for future generations to know what happened on their doorstep. All in the Community will support different ideas and not always agree. Whilst money is tight I hope those who wish will have the opportunity to support which ever project they would like to see in the Park. The important thing is for all to get involved and have a say in what they would like to have in the Park. You will be welcome to come and contribute to the facilities appearance and heritage sub group the date of our next to be arranged.

Hi Mary,

Glad to hear you might be able to get involved.

Your suggestion for BBQs could be a matter for the Recycling/litter group (ask Admin to put you in touch with the convenor Jon Gulson), though I suspect many people will want to have a say.

St Andrews is a public park run by Bristol City Council, so all proposals have to get their sanction.

There is a Friends of the Park meeting on evening of 24.6.09 at Derby Road Bowls club. All our meetings are open to interested people, so do come along if you want - BBQs, litter etc are sure to be raised.
