Bulb Planting

October 24th. Following on from our three years of terrific tree planting, this autumn we will be doing some bulb planting along the River Frome. Just phone Jim 0117 939 1571 or email livingeaston@btinternet.com for more details nearer the time.

 

River Frome Access Survey

Did you know that we have now managed to get the council to officially adopt 'our' stretch of the River Frome as part of the Frome Valley Walkway? The Walkway now continues from Eastville Park to Castle Park in the City Centre. This is great news for all pedestrians and cyclists who use the pathways along and across the M32 corridor as it means that we can now lobby even more effectively for improvements in terms of access and community safety in this area. To this end our members are carrying out a detailed 'access survey' of the route - if you want to get involved just phone Jim on 0117 939 1571 or email livingeaston@btinternet.com

 

Time-Signs News

Have you noticed the two new and colourful Time-Signs which have been put up at Stapleton Road Station and at the corner of Bloy Street and Chelsea Road....well....they are about to be joined by a commemorative bust to the famous cricketer and our one time local doctor WG Grace. The bust and plinth will be erected outside of Easton leisure Centre on Stapleton Road towards the end of this year. Phone Mike for more details on 0117 941 1918.

 

Community Local History Archive

This is just a note to let you all know that it's still expanding and covers not only the 'history' of Easton, Eastville and Greenbank but also attempts to record contemporary social changes and events. A boon to all whether you're doing a school project or are just interested in our social and economic history.

 

Living Easton Web Site

Our thanks to Rob Stephens for his help at the University of the West of England for making this site possible. We went "LIVE" on September 20th 1999. Our site is constantly expanding and will soon contain sections on Quakerism, William Penn - slave owner, Women's History, and more.
