A MASSIVE THANK YOU to David & Paul for another successful Woodland Owl Prowl. We loved their beautiful little owl and barn owl. We heard lots of wild owls calling and one group even saw one flying. If you have any pictures please do share them with us. And THANK YOU to everyone who donated so generously. We covered our costs for the evening and will be able to put on another owl prowl in the future (if people want another one next year?).
Our last volunteer work party of 2018 is today. Meeting at 10am at the co-op entrance to St Annes Woods. Hope to see you there.
The Friends of Brislington Brook Christmas Social 2018.
Venue confirmed… Spice Bazaar, Brislington Hill, have welcomed us back for another year (if Tony Carey promises to bring his guitar). We have booked a table for 12 but this can be increased if you want to come and join us (it’s not too late). This year we will not be having the party menu then everyone can order exactly what they want from the general menu. If you have any questions please do give us a shout. See you on Wednesday 🙂
The Bristol Tree Forum – Tree of the Year competition voting is live until the 15th November 2018…. please give our bricked up London Plane Tree your vote and spread the word!
We are very sorry to all those that planned to come along and give us a hand. But the weather forecast for the rest of today means it is not possible to continue as planned. Phase two of the pond renovation will be rescheduled to autumn 2019!
Evening everyone. I am going to try and use this website more to keep people who don’t tend to use social media updated. Now autumn is on it’s way there is no better time to get out there and enjoy our beautiful woodland which Brislington Brook flows through. Our steering group meeting on Wednesday 3rd October will be planning for Saturdays 6th October’s “BIG DIG” volunteering event. We will be undertaking the second phase of the pond renovation in Nightingale Valley and we need all the hand we can get to make it a really productive work party. If you know anyone who might want to come along, grab a spade, and get stuck in then please do share our event details.
