Helping Bristol Prison

H&DAA were represented at a recent meeting in Bristol Prison where members of the local community were invited to pass any views or concerns to the prison authorities (HMP). This is of particular interest to Golden Hill plotholders as our allotment site is very close to the prison..

The main focus was on how the local community could contribute to the reduction of substance abuse which remains a significant problem. HMP has added extra netting to obstruct ‘throwovers’ and there has been action against drug networks and drones in and out.

We feel that H&DAA could support the prison authorities by keeping members informed of any news via this website and by asking for plotholders to report incidents/concerns to us so that we can pass them on to HMP.

If you have any concerns or wish to report any activities to HMP, you can email
