Work under way on park facelift
NEW life is to be injected into a park in Portishead.
A working party has been set up to develop Brampton Way Community Park after reports by council play rangers concluded that it is underused and in need of improvement.
Work has already got under way, with volunteers from Portishead in Bloom planting shrubs in the park. North Somerset Council has also agreed to put up a fence which will make it a safer place to play, while also accommodating dog walkers.
Year 10 students from Gordano School will be given the opportunity to work with urban artist Tom Hine to transform the graffiti wall into an interesting fun feature.
Police Community Support Officer Dawn Tremlett, who is leading the initiative to enhance the area, said: “We would like to work with residents and the wider community to improve the open space so it can be appreciated and respected by all.”

North Somerset Housing and North Somerset Council have shown commitment to the project by supplying some of the immediate funding required.
An information and consultation session will take place at the park from 3-6.30pm on June 15 to allow members of the community to have their say.
