  1. Dear Committee
    Re: AOB

    I am unable to attend the AGM but wish to raise an AOB regarding the cessation of entrance fee payments in cash.

    I wish to point out that this excludes all those who are unable (often for debt reasons) to pay by card/cannot get a bank account. This seems to be to go against the charitable status of the Garden (ethos, not legislation) and its commitment to spread knowledge and understanding of plant life.

    Bristol has many disadvantaged communities, plenty of which are finding life even harder in the current financial climate. I would suggest this makes it even more important that we do not exclude them from the healing nature of green spaces, education regarding plant life and an appreciation of its importance to the environment.

    I therefore call upon the Garden to enable those who need to, to pay in cash.
