Bristol Parks Forum is the umbrella organisation for community park groups and organisations in the city with an interest in their local parks and green spaces.

You can find their website here  In the Meetings section you will find the Minutes of previous meetings and the Agenda for the coming meeting.

Strictly speaking it is the group that is a member of the BPF, though they are happy to add several people from each group to the mailing list. Also anyone from the group is welcome to attend BPF meetings, though strictly speaking there should only be two representatives from each group. We would only need to restrict our numbers if the meetings became too popular!

Currently we have four Friends of St Andrews Park (FOSAP) interested in BPF, but it is an open group and you would be welcome too.

John Mayne, Simon Randolph, Jo Corke, Steve Perry.
