Red Panda seen on Brandon Hill! Well, not quite, but the red pandas Lady Hilary and Chota at Bristol Zoo Gardens are from today enjoying munching through bamboo sourced from Brandon Hill. With the zoo's regular supplies running a little low we have been able to offer a regular supply from around the tower. At last - a good news story! Not sure which red panda this is in the photo. Perhaps you can take a trip along to the zoo and let us know.
Girl Power ~ Brilliant!
Go Natalie! It was a terrible mess. http://www.bristol247.com/channel/opinion/your-say/environment/an-open-letter-to-david-rodriguez-campo
Come and help out Tuesdays 10am-12 noon. ParkWork are now joining the friends Gardening Group on Brandon Hill on Tuesday mornings to help with the revitalisation of the Tower Gardens and other areas. We hope that ParkWork will help encourage new volunteers onto the hill to help out. ParkWork is a project led by the Bristol Parks Forum that gives people on the route to employment the opportunity to gain skills, training and work experience through volunteering in parks. The project has been very successful over the past year with a high percentage of the projects participants gaining employment as a result of working with ParkWork.
It was a sad day last month when the oldest tree on Brandon Hill fell during a freak extremely gusty hail shower. The 250+ year old oak (Quercus Robur) within the depot would have been well known to many of you. We're now looking for ideas on how to best use the wood from the tree. What would you do with the wood, and possibly the space that it is vacating? We would love to hear your ideas. Please let us know here on the Brandon Hill FaceBook page https://www.facebook.com/brandonhillbristol/ , by email to email@example.com or by speaking to Rocco the park keeper. thank you!
Guided walks around the Brandon Hill Tree Trail are being led by tree experts from Friends of Brandon Hill as part of the Bristol Walk Fest 2016. Come and join us to explore some of the 500 trees of over 100 different species on the hill. See the links below for booking your place on the 3rd, 14th and 25th of May.
Watch out for more events during the Bristol Walk Fest. Below is a taster! We'll be running guided walks round the tree trail on the 3rd, 14th and 25th May. More details after Easter….
Oooh…. the Goodgym came back to Brandon Hill last night and did some great work clearing the ivy from Great George St and Charlotte St South walls so we can work out how much work is required to repair them. Yeah! Well done them. See run report below. If you would like to get involved with Goodgym then sign up on their home page…. http://www.goodgym.org/reports/b-oulder-dash
Apparently, as seen on page 24 of the latest Bristol Magazine, a relative of George Washington got his knickers in a bit of a twist on Brandon Hill! Side splitting is was….

Hey! Big thanks to the Goodgym for a tremendous effort on Saturday on the Old Bowling Green and up by Cabot Tower. Well done them and a big big thank you! See their report at http://www.goodgym.org/reports/a-mulch-weeded-run
If you need a little help then ask the Girl Guides along! The 184th Bristol Guides did a great job litter picking over the whole hill. Well done girls and thank you very much indeed from all at Brandon Hill. If you're considering guiding then Sophie at Redland Guides can be contacted on firstname.lastname@example.org Yeah! Any other guide groups out there needing an activity for their Community Action Challenge???
Ever wondered who'd been eating the fish from the pond. Caught.
Great mornings work from the ParkWork team and the Way to Grow volunteers this morning along with the friends gardeners. If you would like to join in we'll be back every Tuesday morning
The lime tree next to the bottom pond of the water feature was felled this week. You can see the rot the fungus at the base of the trunk has caused....right up through the tree. Very smelly too. 😷
