Alison Bromilow for Bishopston Cotham and Redland Neighbourhood Partnership has contacted TBS to say:

Please can you circulate the following information to your members and put this on your website so that we can get the views of as many people as possible.
There will be a new Grounds Maintenance Service across Bristol that will start in February 2015 and this will be directly influenced by Neighbourhood Partnerships.

This is your opportunity to influence, through your Neighbourhood Partnership, what the new Grounds Maintenance Service will look like.

The information you give will be used by the Neighbourhood Partnership to work with the Council to implement a Grounds Maintenance Service for each NP area.

The link to the questionnaire asking for your views on a new Grounds Maintenance Service is  here

The more responses we get, the more balanced and representative the Parks design for the new contracts will be.
