Bishopston Matters shared Henleaze, Stoke Bishop and Westbury-on-Trym Neighbourhood Partnership's post. ...

At the beginning of August we had someone metal detecting in Canford Park and digging holes all over the place (about 50!) and so Parks have put notices up onsite informing this is not permitted. One evening this week the same happened again and apparently also in Stoke Lodge. Please share this post as we need to put a stop to this Anti-social behaviour and whoever is doing this needs to be stopped. Please contact if you have any Information regarding this matter.
