Bristol Post 29.1.14

A COMMUNITY netball hoop has been installed in St Andrew's Park – much to the delight of children and adults who live nearby. Regular players, part-timers and young novices all enjoyed practising their shooting once it was unveiled at the weekend.

The Friends of St Andrew's Park were awarded £863 from the Bishopston, Cotham and Redland Neighbourhood Partnership to add the latest facility at the popular green space.

Hi - will the existing play equipment be dismantled, sand blasted; resprayed and then put back
or
repainted in situ
or left as it is?

There are two posters at the Main Effingham Road gate. One says the work on the Playground will begin 16.11.09. the work will take 12-14 weeks. The other is a BCC architects' plan of the work to be done.

We presume the playground will not be available while the work is in progress.

Hi Ian, and welcome to the website.

The toilets have been a constant source of emails and letters between FoSAP and the Council, and your writing to the councillor will help. In addition, I will relay your comments directly to our Parks Council officer. We all need to keep on top of the problem; we deserve better.

Within the “Friends of St. Andrews Park” group, there are several sub-groups, some of which may be of interest to you. If you would like to know more about one or more of these groups, go to the Tab called FORUM and read the Special Interest Groups item.

Hello, my first time here. The main reason we use the park is for our daughter, who is now just junior school age. The main drawback at the moment are the toilets. I accept that public toilets are always subject to abuse from certain quarters but I fail to see why they should be so dirty - the last time I braved the gents there was a thick layer of dust/grime over all horizontal surfaces. My wife took our daughter there today and there was no working light, no soap in the dispensers and so on. All these things are down to a lack of basic maintenance and cleaning. They are not inevitable - other authorities seem to be able to provide acceptable facilities so i don't see why we should have to put up with it. Is there anywhere else on this site dealing with this? I shall be writing to my councillor as well but I wondered if anyone in the FOSP had tried to tackle this problem.

Hi,

What about some improvements for the toddlers? They are the ones who use the play area in the mornings and afternoons. Why is the money only for 8-13 year olds?
