Sylvia Crowe designed the Cumberland Piazza as part of a much bigger landscaped scheme covering all the Ashton and Hotwells flyover. She explored many ideas about play and leisure that were cutting edge in the 1960s. One of the ideas for the Piazza was that people could sit and watch the boats coming in and out of Bristol Harbour. there were so many things she couldn't have known about that have arisen as major concerns in the intervening years. Although we can still watch the boats come and go from our new pocket park, we often watch through a haze of speeding cars- who knew in the 1960s that traffic levels would quadruple within 50 years?
The Hotwells and Cliftonwood Community Association is a lively network of locals committed to enhancing life in our community. The HCCA area includes Hotwells, Cliftonwood and Spike Island, which we believe is the old Parish boundary.
HCCA aims to:
- Share skills, knowledge and experience within our community
- Help people to be involved in local decisions
- Organise social and creative activities for everyone
- Work towards the development of a sustainable local economy
- Act to tackle social, economic, political and environmental problems in our area in partnership with Bristol City Council
Everyone is welcome to join us in helping make this great area an even better place to live!
The organisation is a registered charity and operates as a company limited by guarantee, managed by a committee of Trustees, who are elected annually at our AGM by members of the public.
