It is great to see the reappearance of these bunny rabbits in The Bearpit. Having spent a while populating Bristol with monsters, NEVERGIVEUP has returned to his rabbits, which were the first pieces of his that I became aware of last year.
These stylised rabbits are clean and characterful and always add a litlle bit of fun to The Bearpit.
It is becoming increasingly clear that The Bearpit is suffering once again from a drug and drink problem, with quite a sizeable community of homeless people gathering here with the cold weather. By no means are all homeless people drug addicts or alcoholics, but The Bearpit is a bit of a honeypot for both, which creates a slightly uneasy atmosphere at times. The long term solution has to be to do something about the housing crisis and providing these homeless people with a roof over their head and some dignity. From there they can try to stitch their lives back together. Sadly they will be persecuted as being the reason places like The Bearpit are ‘no-go’ areas rather than being a symptom of far greater problems created by extreme austerity.
The rabbits bring a little happiness.
