During my election campaign I called on over 2000 households in Frome Vale, and met so many lovely people. I would like to say a massive thank you to everyone who voted for me and for the support I have had since being elected as one of your Councillors.  Since being elected, I have wasted no time in gaining the support of Mayor Marvin Rees and Councillor Mark Bradshaw to delay and review the closure of the North carriageway on Stoke Lane.  I am working with the excellent Stapleton and Begbrook Community Centre to improve the sports facilities they offer and you should notice these soon.  My key interests for the ward are for improvements which support family life, whether this is housing, transport, medical services, groups you might want to set up, or improving education.  In February I helped set up the ‘Friends of Fishponds Park’, and we are really getting going with our improvement for the park.  We will be contacting local groups for their ideas about the park so that everyone has a chance to contribute. Once we have finished this I will be looking at other parks and open spaces in our area to improve.  I will make sure any concerns you have raised with me are dealt with.  If you wish to contact me there are a number of ways you can do so, my email is: cllr.nicola.bowden-jones@bristol.gov.uk, or you can call me on 07584480590.  I will be arranging drop in surgeries for you to come and visit me if you have any ideas for improving the area or concerns about our community or the services you are receiving from the council.
