Out this weekend: May 2014 edition of the Bradley Stoke Journal magazine

May 2014 edition of the Bradley Stoke Journal magazine.

The May 2014 edition of the Bradley Stoke Journal magazine has been dropping on doormats this weekend.

This month’s feature story concerns the Bradley Stoke Community Speed Watch, which is now up and running. Coordinator Derek Powell is inviting any local residents with concerns about speeding to contact him on 07900 843268.

The date for this year’s Bradley Stoke Carnival, which will have an ‘international’ theme and feature Wurzels tribute band The Twerzels, has been set for Saturday 23rd August. This event is in addition to the annual Bradley Stoke Community Festival weekend, which takes place on the weekend of 6th/8th June.

There’s also news about the overflowing dog waste bins in Bradley Stoke, which have given rise to many complaints; not to mention the fact that the town council has chosen to remove 24 of the receptacles to save money (on emptying costs).

We also report on a double setback for the Mayor’s ‘food court’ plan that could see two food traders operating from the car park at each of the town council’s three activity centres. Councillors rejected the Mayor’s proposal that the town council foot the bill for ‘change of use’ planning applications and then objected to a street trading licence application from a kebab vendor wishing to become the second trader at Baileys Court.

In other news, we learn of an award for local charity Southern Brooks Community Partnership and the ‘cracking’ time Wheatfield Primary School pupils had when Gromberry came to visit.

The issue is rounded off with regular columns from Dr Norman Douglas (‘Ask the Doctor’) and Becky Ward (‘Bradley Stoke through the camera lens’) plus a new column by Andy Wynn, manager of the Willow Brook Centre.

All readers are invited to enter our FREE prize draw to win a year’s membership of Anytime Fitness, which has a gym at the Willow Brook Centre and more than 2,400 others worldwide.
