There’s a busy programme of community events taking place in Bradley Stoke this coming weekend, with something to interest all ages.
Hundreds are expected to attend the Bliss Charity Buggy Push, leaving from Brook Way Activity Centre at 10am on Saturday and returning for a teddy bears’ picnic, cake sale and refreshments between 11am and 1am. The event will raise money to help support premature and sick babies.
Later on Saturday, the Stokes Cycling Club has organised a mountain bike ride around Bradley Stoke. Meet outside the leisure centre at 2.30pm for the approximately 8-mile ride.
On Saturday evening, the Stokes Singers are staging their annual Summer Concert at the Church of Christ the King (doors open 7pm for a 7.30pm start) . This year, the event will feature music from A Chorus Line, South Pacific, Porgy & Bess, Oliver, Rent, Sound of Music, Sweet Charity, Guys & Dolls and the Lion King.
Over at the leisure centre on Saturday night, there’s a party event to raise funds for multiple sclerosis charities, specifically the Bristol and Avon Multiple Sclerosis Clinical Centre (BRAMs) at Frenchay. Tickets are priced at £6 per adult or £18 per family (2 adults & 2 under 16s) and include disco, food, bouncy castle and other supervised children’s activities.
Sunday sees the regular Trench Lane Car Boot Sale (from 7am), but if bargain hunting isn’t your thing, you could join the Severnside Ramblers for a 9-mile walk near Goodrich (a car sharing scheme operates, meet in the Aldi car park at 9am).
The Stokes Cycling Club’s second ride of the weekend sees them departing the leisure centre at 9.30am for a 25-mile spin to Thornbury and back, including a refuelling stop at a cafe.
Further details of all events can be found in The Journal’s What’s On diary, the most comprehensive guide to what’s going on in Bradley Stoke.
