The last bit of green

This is a project in the making – plans to plant and install bird boxes have got Cliftonwood Residents Association chomping at the bit! They won a Big Lottery Grant in May 2007 and have started preparations to make their little patch of green even greener and more wildlife friendly.

The local residents put up a fight to save a precious patch of wildlife surrounded by Bristol's city sprawl.

The People

Public feeling was so strong that residents formed their own company - Cliftonwood Terrace Residents' Association - to save this last bit of green for the community.

"We’ve always envisaged that we would like to bring something to the area that can be enjoyed by the whole community."
