Throughout 2015 members of the Partnership have been working with a team of artists to create a map showing the green spaces in St George (& Greater Fishponds) and some of the quiet links between them.
The project in funded by the Bristol 2015 Nighbourhood Arts Project with additional money coming from the Partnership’s own pot of money allocated from Bristol 2015. Greater Fishponds NP have also contributed so that the map can extend into their area.
The official launch of the map is Tuesday 8th December and copies of the map that you can pick up will soon start to appear in various places around St George.
You can see the online version of the map, which has lots of information and activity sheets to download on the new Discover East Bristol website.
Find out more about the project and theteam of artists who created the map on the Bristol 2015 website:
We are also producing display copies to put up in key locations around the area.
To help promote the new map, and also the NP, Rob Acton-Campbell (NP Chair) was on the ‘One Love Breakfast’ show on 2nd December, broadcast on BCfm, Ujima Radio and Pirate Nation.
