Annual Hedge Trimming - ( Note: this title is meant to be ironic) at All around St Andrews Park

August 31, 2016 from 6pm to 7pm

This year the council seems to have forgotten or cant be bothered to do it. So three weeks ago  I wrote to find out what was happening...From: Martin Weitz []Sent: 10 August 2016 09:50To: Sarah TylerCc: John MayneSubject: Hedge still not cut Hi…See More

NAME: Friends of St Andrews Park ("the Friends")


To protect, maintain and develop St Andrews Park for the benefit of the local community by:-

* Developing and improving the environment of the Park (including the play area )
* Protecting and extending the nature conservation value of the Park
* Promoting and supporting community events in the Park
* Liaising and communicating with Bristol City Council about Park issues


* Membership is open to everyone. It is acknowledged that the existing membership may not reflect the views of everyone who uses the Park. The members will therefore try to:
* Ensure that it consults widely and informs Park users and Park neighbours about the activities of the members, through articles in local publications and by the use of leaflets and notices
* Contact and consult other local groups, particularly those under-represented by the Park members
* Include a variety of activities and projects which are likely to appeal to a wide cross section of interests within the local community


* the Friends consists of a committee (the committee) and a number of special interest groups, including graffiti, antisocial behaviour and litter, restoration, facilities, play areas, social activities, and wild life groups (these may change from time to time)

* The Committee is comprised of officers elected annually at a general meeting namely Richard Howell
(chair), Sarah McMurchie (sec), John Mayne (treasurer), Martin Weitz (publicity)and a representative of each special interest group who may attend committee meetings and communicate the views, plans and activities of the special interest groups

* The Committee may co-opt members to fulfil other functions as required

* All members of the committee present at meetings may vote and the quorum for the committee will consist of 3 officers and 2 others

* Decisions will be taken by a majority vote of the committee

Hi I must say I share you views on the "art" work. I find this in yer face stuff not to my liking. Why do I have to constantly look at other people's tastes without ever having a say. If i am out numbered then fine but I would like to be asked.

I happen to agree with you that The Troll as you put it is perhaps not as good as Jack Vettriano or David Hockney but it's better than graffiti
