Parish Council Meeting

This is a meeting of the Pill & Easton-in-Gordano Parish Council. The public are welcome to the first part of the meeting to put questions and/or comments to the council.

SPAD/Parish Council tree planting

100 young native hazel tree whips will be given away FREE at the market plus other bare fruit trees will be on sale at cost price. You’ll get advice on planting and care of your tree and we hope in time to have over 100 small trees across a patchwork of local gardens to capture carbon, clean our air, attract wildlife and feed the birds and yourselves! There will also be tree planting in the afternoon in Jenny’s Meadow, the nature reserve beside Avon View – all welcome. Hope to see you there.

Bristol – Portishead Bus Consultation (X3. X3A & X4)

First Bus are running a consultation for the bus that runs between Bristol & Portishead, which of course runs through Pill and Eason-in-Gordano;

You can fill in the online survey here. You have until the 24th Jan to respond! Here is what First Bus say:

As a bus operator, we need to ensure the services we operate are financially viable, while meeting the needs of the customer.

To help us do that, we want to hear the views of the many customers who use our our X3, X3A or X4 services, so outlined below are a few simple questions that will enable us to understand how you currently use the service, what you think of some suggestions we have and what else you think we should consider.

The consultation will run from Friday 10 January to Friday 24th January 2020 inclusive, after which we will review all the responses and decide the best way forward. We will communicate the results of the consultation in February, and we will then start the detailed work to prepare for changes that we expect to implement in April.
