Green perspectives on Stockwood and Bristol. Mostly.

A Stockwood Miscellany

A new 'transport sub-group' for the Hengrove and Stockwood Neighbourhood Partnership has its first meeting next Monday, 6pm at the S. Bristol Sports Club on West Town Lane. If local transport's important to you, so is this group! All welcome.

Friends of Stockwood Open Spaces has published its New Year news-sheet, linked from their home page. Feel free to print and share it. Details of orchard reclamation work parties (including this coming Saturday and Monday mornings) are on the same site.

On Sunday 30th January, there's a 'community clean-up' along the Sturminster valley and railway path, centred on the Sturminster Club. A team from Community Payback will be helping, and doing more the following day. Details to follow - but email me (stockwoodpete [at] if you'd like them sent to you.

HandS is a new on-line residents forum now being set up to serve the Neighbourhood Partnership area of Hengrove and Stockwood (hence its name, H and S). It's independent of the formal Partnership, which is a council body, but supportive of it. Again, email me if you'd like to know when it's launched.

[added 5th Jan - appeal received from Badgers/St Johns Ambulance]
