We had another meeting on Friday 13th August 2010, and although it was Friday the 13th, it wasn’t a bad meeting, most of the problems surrounding the Communal Gardens. and the lack of Contract work being done as part of being on the Maintenance Contract, have now been sorted out, and we were told by the Managers of the council, that work would commence within 2 weeks of the meeting on the 13th, I am extremely pleased to be able to report back, that someone from the Council’s Parks Department, came out and had a walk around with me, and have told us that the work will be starting on Thursday 26th August 2010, so I can honestly say that ‘ So Far’ since the meetig, we have been kept in the loop, by all concerned, and hopefully they will be starting work tomorrow.  I know that I am a little sceptical over anything that the Council say they are going to do, actually being done, and with them actually keep in touch with Tenants Associations, and keeping us in the loop, but since our last meeting, they have been true to their word, and stuck with everything they said they would do, I just hope that work will commence tomorrow, as promised?  I will keep this site up to date and post everything that happens, as and when, it happens, and hopefully I will be reporting back here tomorrow, to let you all know, that work has started, and will keep a daily log, as to how well it is progressing, and if we are being kept in the loop, and asked about things to be done here, before they actually do them, lets keep our fingers crossed, as I really would love to be able to say that ‘Bristol City Council, may not have got it right at the begining, but they have worked with us, and things are going really well’? I can but hope!!!!!!!! Here goes, I am off for now, but will be back on tomorrow, to let you know what is happening, Take Care, from all of us at Kingsley House


Garden Update!!

After yet another consultation with the council surveyor and two gentlemen from the parks department, we are hoping that now maybe we will be moving in the right direction, the Park departments are now going to bring the community gardens upto a decent standard, so that it can be regularly maintained by the council, on there maintenance programme. Because of the difficulty in getting an honest and fair reply from the complete mix up of the Potting shed, that was going to be the start of the gardening club, but we ended up with a totally useless shed, that is unfit for purpose, but due to said surveyor, going as slow as is humanily possible, in coming back with a reply as to when the shed is going to be changed, we are not sure as to when the gardening club is actually going to start, the part where the council and government are supposed to be all for building community spirit, and getting communities to stand together and help each other, seem to be, at the moment nothing more than lip service, I will go into more detail, as to what has happened, and what the outcome of all the messing about. If we all learn to stand together and to make sure that council officials do there jobs properly, and listen to there own regulations, about trnsparency and honesty, the council on a whole, would save a fortune, on having to back track on the things they should have done, I will add more to this later, but please let me know if we are the only T.A that is having this type of problem, and if not, maybe by all of us getting together, and accumilating all the different case’s that we may have, then as a working body, together, we will have much more clout….
