For a second year RCAS provided a significant subsidy for the lamp post baskets on Cotham Hill and congratulations are due to RCAS Committee member Gillian Penrose (organiser) and all supporters of the RCAS Cotham Hill in Bloom scheme which won a GOLD MEDAL and JOINT SECOND PLACE (with Waterloo Street) in the “Shopping Area / Street” section of The Garden For Bristol Awards 2014.  Gillian attended the Award ceremony at the City Hall on the 3rd October and received a framed certificate from the Deputy Lord Mayor.  Gillian is also to be congratulated on submitting a successful application for a Well Being Grant from the Neighbourhood Partnership which will enable the scheme to continue in 2015.



Cotham Gardens: 

RCAS has received letters from local residents  about the litter and possible drug use/dealing in the bottom corner of the Gardens nearest the Bannatynes Health Club, and inside the park at the bench near the oak tree. These concerns have been discussed with the police with a view to getting some patrols inside the park. Suggestions to put a new litter bin in the bottom corner, improve lighting and/or remove the bench altogether are to be discussed with BCC Parks Officers. 

Redland Green: 

RCAS has provided funding for a quantity of bulbs and Redland Green Community Group will arrange a planting session.
