2 more dates for the diary…

Hello again from Sims Hill! We hope that you all have a very merry and festive holiday season!

After the New Year, Sims Hill is preparing to swing into action with our first open work day on our site. Mark your calendars for 22 January from 10 to 1. Bring a packed lunch and a mug for tea/hot drinks. We are planning on having regular work days on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of each month, so if you can’t make this one, come along to the next!

The site is located on Frenchay Holdings, Stoke Lane, Frenchay, Bristol, BS16 1QG. The ordnance survey map details for the site are described here (pdf).

Directions to Sim Hill site (by bike or car): Heading up Frenchay Park Rd away from town take a left at the traffic lights onto Stoke Lane. Once you’ve passed the allotments you pass over the motor way. There is a gated track on the right before you go up the hill. Go down here and walk for five minutes. The track opens out into a field, Sims Hill Shared Harvest.

Alternatively you can continue up the hill, Coldharbor Rd. Park at the top in the residential areas. Opposite Cassons Drive there is a right of way. Follow this through the fields then woodland. This will bring you out onto Sims Hill Shared Harvest.
