Fun Evening with SPRA Road Captains

Sneyd Park Residents Association Committee recently hosted the annual cheese and wine evening as a ‘thank you’ to all the Road Captains who are so important in spreading the SPRA word and engaging our local community in what we do here in Sneyd Park.

Held at Stoke Bishop Village Hall, a fun night was had by all! Indeed, there was a lot of fun and laughter while delicious cheese and wine was enjoyed, new friends made and old ones reunited at the first SPRA Road Captains gathering since covid arrived on the scene!

If you would like to support the work of SPRA, we are always looking for volunteers – especially new Road Captains. What better way to enjoy our local Sneyd Park community?

Sneyd Park Wildlife

The Avon Gorge & Wildlife Project recently posted this wonderful video to their Facebook page. Just listen to the bird song and those busy woodpeckers as they go about their work!

It’s a great reminder of why Sneyd Park and environs are so important to protect for generations to come!

Please do consider contributing to this crowdfunding campaign. If you don’t feel you can contribute financially, it would also be a great help if you could share the campaign and link with your local friends and family.

This is a consultation document from Bristol City Council. It contains some potentially very controversial changes to various junctions and the closure of roads, including Park Street. Please do consider completing it. It’s a large document. However, it’s possible to choose to only respond to the elements which are relevant to you.

Chairman’s Update – November 2020

I trust you and your families are all well, and adjusting to our new way of life. 

The SPRA committee has managed to meet, albeit under restrictive conditions but unfortunately, we have had to stop some of our activities and this includes the door-to-door collection of membership subscriptions. 

Because of this we are asking that all members who have not already paid their subscriptions, do so by standing order or internet banking transfer. 

Just send an email with your name, address and telephone number to the chairman and request either a Standing Order form or our bank details to use with an internet banking transfer.

Stay safe and well, Steve

Steve Small, Chairman, SPRA
