With the weather set to remain fine, there’s a great opportunity to take part in a number of free community events taking place in Bradley Stoke this weekend.
The Bradley Stoke in Bloom group is holding its monthly ‘tidy up‘ on Saturday (21st September) near the doctor’s surgery on Brook Way (a change from the previously advertised venue), where they will be planting up the flower bed and removing as much bramble as possible. Volunteers are asked to wear suitable clothes/shoes and bring a packed lunch, although tea/coffee and biscuits will be provided. The workday starts at 10am and runs until 4pm, although it’s fine to leave earlier.
The Stokes Cycling Club has organised a treasure hunt ride, starting from Bradley Stoke Leisure Centre at 9.30am on Sunday (22nd September). Riders will be given a map with clues and left to their own devices. Suitable for adults only.
The Friends of Jubilee Green volunteer group are staging another Family Fun event on Sunday afternoon, between 2pm and 4pm at the play park off Savages Wood Road. The occasion celebrates the completion of the new youth structure at the park and the installation of a set of brass rubbing plates. A bouncy castle and human table football have been confirmed and there will also be ‘bubble fun’ and ‘sports day’ type events all afternoon.
Also on Sunday, from 3pm to 4pm at the Jubilee Centre, the South Gloucestershire Chinese Association welcomes you to a free Tai Chi class for everyone! Tai Chi is a popular exercise originating from Ancient China that can help keep you fit and release stress. Booking is required for this Discover Festival event.
Going into the new week, there’s a guided ‘bat walk‘ in the Three Brooks Local Nature Reserve on Monday evening. You’ll be shown how to identify the bats on the nature reserve, using a bat detector. The walk will be led by Laura Plenty from the Avon Bat Group. Meet outside Bradley Stoke Leisure Centre at 7.30pm. Booking is required for this Discover Festival event.
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 BS32.
