business as “Va Va

Voom”, late in October. Residents in Pooles Wharf and Rownham Mead made complaints to Bristol Council and a public meeting attended by about 30 people, including a representative of the police, was held at Trinity Church in November to discuss possible action. Neighbouring shops expressed concern that it would damage their business and many people felt that a massage parlour would bring ‘undesirable’ people into the neighbourhood. Residents resolved to log activity at the parlour and record car numbers to pass on to the police. Councillor Brian Price was among several people pursuing the issue with BCC planning department and was told that although the operation was in contravention of planning use, it might take up to 18 months before the proprietors had exhausted the various enforcement and appeal procedures and could be finally closed down. This assumes retrospective planning permission is not granted for the change of use. On December 3rd a demonstration was held outside the premises. About 50 people turned up and the event was widely covered by the local media. The development has led to a lively exchange of views on the Pooles Wharf website forum at www.pooleswharf.co.uk.

People wanting to record their response to the development can write to planning enforcement at Brunel House, St Georges Rd, Bristol BS1 5UY. Jeremy McNeil has also set up an e-petition on the Bristol City Council web site. If you wish to sign this you can do so at: http://www.bristol-city.gov.uk/

Will The Blacksmith

Local ‘character’ Tom Williams died tragically after falling into the Floating Harbour in December. He originally sailed to Bristol on a trawler and then lived in the Docks on the ‘Audacious’, a miniature Dutch Barge which he built himself. He was given a send-off he would have appreciated very much when shipwright friends built a sea-chest coffin and a small procession of boats followed Tom on ‘Audacious’ as he made his last voyage around the harbour.

Community News

It was with great regret that the management committee decided to make Karen Bell our Community Development worker redundant at the end of December. Although Karen was 80% funded by money from Bristol City Council’s Community Development Unit, the Association has inherited both a number of projects from the previous year which it was committed to fund and was unable to identify a major new source of income. Having no overdraft facility we could not risk the organisation becoming insolvent. Karen has worked for the past year on improvements for tenants in Hillsborough and Carrick House. She has gained funds to revitalise the Youth Club and

set up the Community Forum to bring together all those involved in support services in the area, as well as co-ordinating numerous other initiatives from Streets for People Day to the campaigns to save the post office and banish the massage parlour. We shall greatly miss her professional skills and commitment. Amidst this gloom, we have just put the finishing touches to a new three year plan, developed with the help of Vicky Harrison and, following a lively AGM, welcomed some new faces to the management team. We hope to re-negotiate our funding support from Bristol City Council for the next financial year beginning in April 2005. Meanwhile, all the existing projects are being carried on with voluntary help alone. I am

tremendously grateful and deeply heartened by the way people have

responded to a crisis that could have threatened to extinguish the organisation and feel confident that we will be able to continue most of our work. There seem to be threats

to our well-being as a community on every side at the moment and huge scope for improvements if we can act in a co-ordinated and assertive way in dealing with the agencies that are supposed to serve us. Many of you will have received a brochure for the 500 Club with your last newsletter and I urge you to consider joining. In case you haven’t yet, an application form is printed here. Building up our own independent sources of funding is the best way of ensuring an effective voice for your community and tapping in to sources of extra money for projects of local benefit. Ray Smith

Never Land and the Wendy Houses

Remember the original Wendy house in Barrie's Peter Pan? There's news of a row of them on Granby Hill. Edward Ware Homes are sponsoring BOV's Alice in Wonderland and we couldn't sum up the current state of affairs better than Alice's own words:

"Curiouser and curiouser". The site has had three owners in the last five years.The Edward Ware ‘advertorial' in the current Clifton Life tells us that ‘EWH is buying the site from Petherton and urban repair work is due to start soon'. FROGG's determined campaign to get the land zoned as a village green ultimately failed because current conflicting legislation can be manipulated in favour of development rather than retaining green space in cities. It was not enough to show that Granby Green had been created and maintained by residents for more than 20 years.

created and maintained by residents for more than 20 years. EWH have now altered the goal-posts

EWH have now altered the goal-posts with a revised planning application. Will this continue to happen as cost revisions come in? The new application seeks to build 13 units

(instead of 10) and increase the height of the block of flats by 1 metre. FROGG has met to discuss the future of the open space left over and H&CCA has approached the Council about the 2/3 of this space which is still in Council ownership. FROGG members felt an over-elaborate landscaping proposal needed more

consultation.

Public space adjoining the Argyle Place play area

The saga of the land adjoining the Argyle Place play area may be drawing to a close. Despite a history of community use, the application for recognition as a town green was lost. Three houses have now been built, but the remainder of the site is being made over for public use. The new houses cannot be occupied until the public space has been landscaped and replanted.

Negotiations between local residents, Bristol City Council and the developers have produced some fine-tuning to the original plans. The strip of land between the play area and the Lion pub will now have a bin store for the pub’s waste bins, so that they no longer block the pavement. But there will still be room for a pathway to the lower green. The play area will continue to be separately fenced, for safety reasons, but the former gate to the lower green will be replaced by a gate at the corner of the play area. On the lower green three trees are being planted, including a substantial ash. There will be an area of wild grass, not as big as we might like, and a bench with a view over the harbour.

Land below Cliftonwood Terrace

Bristol City Council owns a strip of land below Cliftonwood Terrace, running from the Mardyke Steps through to the Esso garage on Hotwell Road. Much of this land is covered in trees and buddleia, and has become a haven for wildlife. The Council is in the process of declaring the land ‘surplus to requirements’, which is likely to mean that it is sold to the highest bidder - although at least part of it might conceivably be taken over by one of the Council departments for community use. Expressions of interest in the land had to be made to the Council’s Valuer by 7 January 2005, so the deadline will have passed by the time this Newsletter is published. But you might be able to find out how things are going by writing to Rod Taplin, Head of Valuation Practice, Bristol City Council, B Bond, Smeaton Road, BS1 6EE. A group of local residents are trying to influence the Council on this matter. You can be updated by phoning Don Egginton on 9257508 or emailing donegginton@hotmail.com.

Cumberland Basin Flyover

Following a presentation at the AGM in November by Sandra Fryer of BCC and local civil engineer Alf Perry it was resolved to set up a working group to discuss ideas for the future of the area around Cumberland Basin. Although most people were interested in the space under the flyover on the North side of the basin, Alf pointed out that the south side had development potential and this could release money for improvements to the whole area. If you are interested in having a say in how we approach this challenge please e-mail or ring the HCCA office and we will notify you when a meeting is convened

CHASE News Streets for People Day in

September involved reclaiming Clifton Vale from the rat runners and substituting a lively street theatre, stalls, a bouncy castle for the younger residents and a very successful outdoor café. Many of you attended together with our MP. We entertained a large party

of

cyclists from the event

in

Queen Square and all

concerned seem to find it

a much more agreeable

use of the space. Unfortunately only for a few hours but it is a start. Many thanks are due to all those who helped. The development at Harbourside continues apace with no less than 4 tower cranes at current count. The car parking threat this presents is a main current theme for CHASE and anyone who has not read our paper on it should contact me for a copy. We hope to make progressively more use of the HCCA website to publish this sort of information but in the meantime watch the Noticeboards or get on our e-mail circulation list.

The next meeting is on 8 th February at 8pm in the Nova Scotia’s meeting room – we’ll be delighted to see you. James Smith (ottervale@blueyonder.co. uk)

Learning from a load of old rubbish

 

It’s not often done these days, but in the past it was a common occurrence, and you can find the evidence in and around Hotwells if you look around. It’s the idea that if you think hard enough, you can put waste and scrap to good use in buildings and other constructions. Here are some examples you

line, two of them being joined back to back, with a special cast iron top fitted to them. They will probably end up as scrap or landfill

very soon, so be quick if you want to see them.

If you look at the bottom of the railings in Dowry Square, you will see some shaped black blocks. These blocks are a very low grade ‘glass’ moulded from the molten slag that sits on the top of the smelter when refining copper. This was a major industry to the north of

We haven’t quite given up the idea of reusing materials for building purposes, however. As you might expect, the CREATE Environment Centre has some good examples. Here, wooden railway sleepers are used as bollards, railway lines as fence rails, and some of the bricks in the Ecohome are recycled from other buildings.

When I told people that I was to interview Rob Salvidge everyone said what a nice man he is – well it’s true!

I was welcomed on to his huge

he is – well it’s true! I was welcomed on to his huge barge moored in

barge moored in Welsh Back by Jane his wife and sat with Rob at the table in the living /kitchen area where we were joined from time to time by young people wearing Bristol Ferryboat Company sweatshirts who popped up from time to time from the office which is below decks. Rob and Jane have run the familiar blue and yellow ferryboats for the last 4 years. Jane

oversees the staff, admin and accounts and also drives the ferries ( they have 30 staff on the books , about 12 full time and 6 extras in summer) The office work is shared by two young women who also work on the boats for variety. Rob describes himself as passionate about Bristol and excited by Radio Bristol for which he has been a well known presenter for over 30 years. He started with local news, chat and information and one of his guests was Ian Bungard who would come

in to publicise the ferries, which he had started as the Bristol Ferryboat Company.

Both Rob and Jane have had experience as crew members, sailing large racing yachts. He was a crew member on Tony Bullimore’s catamaran in the Atlantic, which was racing around the world at Christmas 2001 while Jane was in a race in the Pacific. This seems to have been a catalyst in their taking over the Ferryboat company so that they could spend future Christmases together! Rob has links with Hotwells as his great grandfather had a butcher’s shop and used to collect his animals live from the side of the shop that was more recently “Brendas” and his dad was born in Sandford Road. The butcher’s shop was demolished to make way for the flyover, Rob has great enthusiasm for the ferries and gave me a history of their use in the harbour. They started in 1976 when City Docks Ventures saw the possibilities of leisure use of the docks. They bought Margaret, the last ferry which had linked Pill to Shirehampton but was now in the mud. Other boats were acquired and an operator was found in Ian Bungard who started the Bristol Ferryboat Company 25 years ago,

with help with restoration by Bristol Development Corporation. Serious thought was put into making the ferries collect commuters from Hotwells, and in 1994, after

a refit, Emily was taking people to Temple Meads. The Mathilda, a new modern,

stable boat was built by Ian Bungard in 1997, and has paid for herself by calling at

Hotwells, the caravan site, the Great Britain, @Bristol and the Industrial Museum, having started, four years ago, being available for tourists in winter too. The newest ferry is the cross harbour one from near the new flats on the Hotwell Road to the Great Britain. It was a regular summer service in 2004 and is run as a commuter service in the winter. Bicycles are allowed on board! This is funded by the City Council, Business West, and Vivaldi European cleaner cities fund. Rob has no worries about the competition from other operators as on busy days in the summer they need all the ferry space that is available and at other times he is proud to run to a timetable that people can rely on. The council also continues to support the commuter service mornings and evenings. So remember to use this fun and reliable alternative transport system as an outing for your visitors or an enjoyable way of taking you into town. Helen Smith

Local Business Thrives Cornwallis Avenue residents Liz and Richard Dennys report that their travel business has just 'landed' a big deal with Easyjet to sit alongside a similar arrangement already in place with regional airline, FlyBE. Brilliant Weekends, is based on Hotwells Road and sells short breaks. An initial 6 month 'pilot' will mean that their company will be promoted to 15 million people each month via the Easyjet website. Richard started the business in 2002 working from home and since then the company has grown to employ 16 people. He has r e c e n t l y r e c e i v e d businessperson awards from both the Evening Post and Western Daily Press. Richard and Liz moved to the area in 2001 and have two young daughters. We wish them continuing success in their venture. www.brilliantweekends.co. uk

John Parke John has made a wonderful contribution to the historical knowledge being gathered about Hotwells and Cliftonwood. He has studied just one small area around Jacobs Wells and White Hart Steps and recently gave a talk at the Record Office to a packed audience. A talk we hope will be repeated soon

Cinderella or Two Weddings and a Pumpkin

This year is special because it’s the

25 th Hotwells Panto. The very first

attempt at this annual antidote for Winter blues way back in 1980 was –yes, you’ve guessed –Cinderella. We won’t bore you with the plot since neither have the script- writers. Suffice to say, it’s always a sellout so get your tickets early. You can call 01275 461262 to order. Payment is by cheque and tickets will be posted to you.

A Night at the Pantomime

And because we can’t get enough of pantomime in Hotwells, come along to Hope Chapel to see that renowned Pantomime dame Chris Harris (currently starring in ‘Dick Whittington’ at the Bath Theatre Royal) perform his new one-man show about the world and origins of this quintessentially British pastime. Premiered at the Wells Literary Festival which reported: “This show is a dazzling display of skills, mime,dance, jokes and song. It reveals a scholarly knowledge of theatrical history but it is his love of the art that is undimmed, from dames to principal boys, from slapstick to spectacle”

What’s going on in Cliftonwood & Hotwells?

I am putting together a regular listings

service for the area so if you are organising or know of a local event, that

you would like to see listed then let me

know. It could be anything from a music night at a pub to dragon boat racing, to dance classes and back again. The plan is to develop a monthly programme of events and distribute this via the Community Association Notice boards, website and newsgroups and also in this newsletter.

I am also looking for a small group of

volunteers who would like to meet up in the pub occasionally and help co-ordinate all this. E-mail re_mcnally@blueyonder.com

or drop stuff in at the H&CCA office in Hope Chapel I will pick it up. Rachel McNally
