Tesco Manager to address Community Meeting

Safer and Stronger Community GroupTesco Extra manager Oliver Hill is scheduled to address this week’s meeting of the Bradley Stoke Safer & Stronger Community Group to be held at Baileys Court Activity Centre on Tuesday evening (7pm start).

Meeting chair Julie Snelling of Southern Brooks Community Partnership says Mr Hill, who has managed the store since it opened in October last year, will pick up any issues that the public bring up about Tesco’s.

Rachel Sharvell-Jones, the new full-time youth worker for Bradley Stoke, will also be present at the meeting, as will Steve Shields of South Gloucestershire Council, who will have some news about planned changes to the district’s Safer & Stronger Communities Partnership Strategy.

The February meeting of the SSCG was well attended and five priority topics were agreed for the police to address – these can be seen on the Bradley Stoke Beat page of the Avon & Somerset Police website.

The Beeches

One of the priority topics – anti-social behaviour in Saxon Way – is sure to figure again in discussions as that road subsequently became one of those affected by the suspected arson attacks of Friday 6th March in which three cars were destroyed during the early hours.

Police Inspector Bob Evely sparked controversy at the last meeting when he refused to discuss concerns raised by local residents about the activities of sex film producer James Edwards at his property in The Coppice. The row was later compounded when the published minutes of the meeting contained no mention of the topic being tabled. A subsequent re-issue of the minutes corrected the omission.
