Plans have been drawn up to improve all paths which lead to Robinswood Hill
A BID for almost £100,000 has been launched to ensure all paths lead to Robinswood Hill.
Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust has made a Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) bid for £93,000 to try and make people appreciate and make more use of the Hill.
The plan is to improve all seven access routes to the hill, building on the theme of the bid – "all paths lead to the hill".
Gloucester MP Richard Graham has written letters of support to the HLF.
Sunday and Monday evenings £12.00 per head for an all inclusive meal with Indian and Thai cuisine (normal price £14.50).
Bring this voucher to the restaurant complete with your name and email address on it.
Terms: Expires 31st July

He said: "Every great city should have at least one great green lung, well appreciated and well used by its citizens.
"Gloucester has a spectacular one but it is under appreciated and under used. The application from the Wildlife Trust would go a long way to helping solve both problems."
He added: "We are incredibly lucky to have Robinswood Hill. This bid is all about improving the entrances and paths to the Hill, appointing a development officer and encouraging us all to go more often. Every child should first go to the top to watch a sunset over the River Severn on her father's shoulders."
Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust is headquartered on Robinswood Hill and has 250,000 members.
The last of 14 new wooden sculptures were carved on the Hill in February in another bid to attract more visitors.
Gloucester city councillorColin Organ, cabinet member for housing, health and leisure said: "Getting up the hill should be part of everyone's lives. I was delighted to revive an annual weekend of activities with One Church and the Friends of Robinswood Hill last year to encourage more residents to visit, and this bid could take things a step further again."
Matthew Somerville, 27, who used to live in Lydney, is currently visiting the city from his new home in Vancouver, Canada. He walked up the hill on Monday. He said: "It really should be made more of, the views from the top are something else. It's a real jewel in the crown."
