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

John Mayne, Jo Corke, Steve Perry.

There is ongoing advice about using the Park at this BPF Mailchimp link.

This advice has come from Jon James as Head of Parks and is supported by the Parks Forum Committee after discussions with Ella Hogg. As a result of the recent statement from the Government all formal volunteering in parks should now stop.

This is not to imply in anyway that parks are closed. In fact they are more important now than ever as places where people who are not self-isolating can get out in the fresh air and enjoy nature. But do so while keeping a distance between yourself and other visitors.

It might be an ideal opportunity to visit those less well known spaces or parts of spaces.

Also as individuals you can still do your bit by litter picking etc.

We are really pleased to be able to bring you news of another successful bid for funding that will benefit Bristol's Parks.

Bristol has secured almost £1 million to help secure the future of the city’s parks and green spaces.
