A few weeks ago, a council survey got people thinking and talking about their local area. The survey showed that the council wanted to hear the views of local residents on a number of matters. We thought it was a great idea to continue the theme of giving voice to the community in our own way.
In these Vox Pop articles, we ask three local people for opinions on a given topic, which can then be read and discussed by everyone who visits our site.
This week, we asked people on the streets of Bradley Stoke: “What do you like about this area?” Here are three unique views from people in your locality…
Anne Petrie: “I like the fact that Bradley Stoke has good access to central amenities like the leisure centre, library, shops and doctor’s surgery. It’s also near the motorway, which is helpful for my husband when he has to travel to work.”
Ali Shah: “I like this area because it is clean and people are generally quite friendly around here. Multi-culturalism is also a positive aspect of this area because it gives variety and diversity: you can meet interesting people from different backgrounds and still feel part of one community.”
Barbara Colfer: “I moved to this area about a year ago and I am very pleased with my neighbourhood. The people in my close are very friendly and welcomed me when I arrived. We had a great Jubilee party last year and everyone participated in the celebrations.”
Do these views represent what you feel are the best features of Bradley Stoke? Perhaps you see some of the things expressed above as negative rather than positive. Do you have anything to add about what you like in the area? Please let us know what you think by leaving a comment below and participating in the discussion!
