Make a difference

If you can't make it to the VPAG meetings, or don't feel that organised groups are really 'your thing', you can still help to make a difference in the park.

  1. Report crime or anti-social behaviour in the park to the police. Call Broadbury Road police station on 0845 4567000 and give details to the local beat manager, Wpc 3224 Sue Coates. Take the number of any vehicles being driven illegally in the park and report them on 0845 456 7000. This will help the police to take action against the drivers.
  2. Report any other problems in the park to Bristol City Council on 0117 9223719. They may not be able to do anything about it immediately, but if enough people bring an issue to their attention, eventually something may get done. Certainly, if a problem is not reported, nothing will get done.
  3. Use the park. The more the park is used by people who care about it, the less likely it is to be dominated and vandalised by those who don't.
  4. Pick up litter in the park and encourage your children to do so too. If we all pick up one piece of someone else's rubbish when we're in the park and put it in the bin, we'll soon get on top of the litter problem.
  5. Clean up after your dog every time you are in the park. You'll be setting a good example to those few dog owners who don't.
  6. Report abandoned or burnt-out cars in or near the park on the Car Clear Hotline, 0117 9455419. Provide as many details as you can and the car should be moved within 24 hours.
  7. Let us know what you think of proposed events or plans for the park - anyone can have a say!
  8. Support the events that VPAG will be organising in the park throughout the year. You'll have fun and will be encouraging a community spirit that will benefit the park.
