Discover East Bristol

DiscoverEastBristolOur Green Spaces Mapping project reached an important milestone today (19th August) with the launch of its own website at:

DiscoverEastBristol.co.uk

Once the project is complete this will take you to a fully interactive version of the map, but for now it has a wonderful taster illustration and a link to the green spaces survey, which is open until the end of August.

One of the artists involved, Dave Bain, and Chair of the Neighbourhood Partnership, Rob Acton-Campbell, talked about the project on the Shepherds Way show on BCFM this evening, you can hear the show via their website at bcfmradio.com/shepherdsway starting 21 minutes into the programme.

The Neighbourhood Partnership has also used some of its Green Capital funds to run a series of walks in St George Green Spaces through the year. Still to come are bat walks in Dundridge Park (Thur 10th Sept) and St George Park (Sat 12th Sept) there is also a walk exploring some of St George’s lesser known green spaces on Sunday 6th September with wildlife expert Rupert Higgins.
