The highlight of a busy weekend in Bradley Stoke will be Sunday’s annual renewal of the Bradley Stoke Fireworks Display organised by the Town Council.
As in previous years, entrance to the display is free but there will be an entry point collection for the Mayor’s charities, which this year are the Bradley Stoke Scout Group and the Three Brooks Nature Conservation Group.
Gates at the Jubilee Centre site [map] open at 4:30pm with hot food served from 4:45pm. The display is due to be started by Robert Bernays, Vice Lord-Lieutenant of Gloucestershire, at 6pm.
Visitors are asked to walk to the venue as no car parking will be available at the Jubilee Centre or on neighbouring streets, with the exception of disabled badge holders.
Those arriving by car are advised to park at the Willow Brook Centre (Tesco Extra) [BS32 8EF, map] and walk to the display.
The Jubilee Centre is also the venue for an interesting event on Saturday (5th November) – the Bradley Stoke Fashion Fayre, organised by SITA. The show, which runs from 10am until 3pm promises to demonstrate “inventive ways of making the most of your wardrobe”. A range of charity shops and vintage retailers will also be in attendance.
Anyone who uses the motorways around Bristol would be well advised to attend an exhibition being held at the Baileys Court Activity Centre today (Friday 4th, 2pm to 8pm), where the Highways Agency will give an overview of its project to create a ‘managed motorways’ system around the Almondsbury Interchange. Roadworks get underway on Monday (7th November) and could last for up to two years.
Further events on Saturday (5th November) include the first session of the Bradley Stoke Bootcamp at Bradley Stoke Community School (8:30am to 9:30am), a Town Councillor Surgery at the Willow Brook Centre (10am to 12 noon) and a Conservation Group Workday in the Three Brooks Local Nature Reserve (10am to 4pm).
Sunday’s other events include Severnside Ramblers’ walk in the Roman Cotswolds (meet at 8:30am in the Aldi car park) and the Stokes Cycling Club’s long distance ride to Brockweir (starts from the Leisure Centre at 9:30am).
Full details of all these events can be found in Bradley Stoke’s most comprehensive What’s On guide, compiled by the Bradley Stoke Journal – number one for news and events in Bradley Stoke.
