Thank you to everyone who took part in the poll to name the bridge at the junction of All Hallows and Albion Road. We had a fantastic response, and are delighted to announce that the winner is… Frog Marsh! This is the historic name for this area of Easton, which was called Frog Marsh until around 1950 when it became known as Lower Easton.
As you may have seen, construction to close the road to traffic has now started. The new pedestrian and cycle friendly space has been designed by artist Bahbak Hashemi Nezhad and children at Bannerman Road Community Academy; and was developed in response to feedback from local residents who asked that the area be safe, support the community, create togetherness, increase opportunities for outdoor activity, and encourage positivity and celebration.
The Friends of Bannerman Road will be launching this new community asset with a celebratory event, so look out for details and please get in touch if you have ideas or would like to be involved. For further information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
