South West RAP visits Bristol
‘ SW RAP on tour’
by Gerry Webdell, SW RAP member and VAT Residents Group
On the 8th of January
2012 it was my pleasure to accompany a merry band of Plymouth
residents from St Budeaux, Crownhill,Leigham and Stonehouse,
picking up reinforcements on the way in Exeter from Water Lane and
then on our merry way to Bristol.
Finally arrived at Pritchard
The reason for this trip was two
fold, to gain some insight into other estates, Brislington and Bush
Court , on how they are laid out and how the community interact
with each other.
The estates where clean and tidy,
we were met at Bush Court by one of the residents and taken
to the common room, which was one of the house units that had been
set aside for gathering and social events. Again it was very
pleasant, clean, and well laidout with adequate seating, where we
where made to feel at home, with tea and cake. Yum yum.
Secondly on a more serious
Finally arrived back at Pritchard
Street Bristol “Affinity Sutton RAP SW meeting” a group
discussion on topics that we all have some input at times,
· Neighborhood and
· Anti Social
Our input was to discuses various
headings and prioritise within each subject. This input will
be put together to form the SW RAP action plan. Finishing off with
a well-deserved buffet, spuds-u-like, then home James.
