A massive THANK YOU and AU REVOIR to outgoing BCR NP Chair, Clive Stevens!
FOHC want to formally thank Clive Stevens - outgoing Chair of Bishopston, Cotham and Redland Neighbourhood Partnership for the enormous support that he has lent us over the past 3 years in pursuing the (at times seemingly never-ending) issues connected to the poor maintenance and lack of investment in Horfield Common and the Ardagh for more than a decade.
In his role as Chair of the BCR NP, Clive has gone over and above to support us, as a Parks Group - specifically to finally nail down what is in fact included in the Parks Maintenance Contract (see the nicely and newly painted benches inside the Ardagh, the (finally) re-painted tennis court lines on ALL of the tennis courts & the soon to be installed new tennis nets which we have previously been repeatedly promised, but which have never actually appeared!), who is actually responsible for maintaining the Ardagh Pavilion and who is responsible for maintaining and servicing the Public Toilets on the common. (**The answer to all of these is BCC Parks!)
We very much hope to continue to work with Clive in his role as Chair of Bristol Trees Forum, but for now, Clive - we want to express our thanks and gratitude for all of your hard work! Your work has had a significant positive impact on Horfield Common & the Ardagh - now and into the future! THANK YOU!
