Bristol Parks Forum are now members of the Bristol Green Capital Parnership – www.bristolgreencapital.org
The Partnership is a free membership organisation whose aim is to make Bristol “a low carbon city with a high quality of life for all”.
The BPF committee agreed to join the Partnership because they considered it important that the BPF and Park Groups have a say in the plans for Bristol Green Capital 2015. Being members may also help us access funds to benefit green spaces in 2015.
The partnership is currently setting up sub-groups to focus on particular sectors, these groups will then feed into a steering group that will create the partnership’s strategy and work with the company that is being set up to run Bristol Green Capital 2015 – see www.bristol2015.co.uk
One of the groups will cover Nature, Wildlife and Green Spaces and will probably be led by the West of England Nature Partnership www.wenp.org.uk, the BPF will be part of this group.
Several Park Groups are also members of the Partnership in their own right. If your group wishes to join then you can do so by signing up to the Green Capital Partnership Pledge www.bristolgreencapital.org/contact/pledge
