The October 2014 edition of the Bradley Stoke Journal magazine has been dropping on doormats this weekend.
This month’s feature story looks at the Tour of Britain’s visit to The Stokes on 10th September, when Tour de France and Olympic time trial winner Sir Bradley Wiggins, along with over a hundred other professional cyclists, whizzed along the Winterbourne Road on their way to the Stage 4 finish on the Downs in Bristol. Our readers took some great photos of the event and the magazine features shots from Andy Burrows and Steve Gower Photography.
Other sporting news includes the Youth Olympics bronze medal win by Peter Miles of Bradley Stoke Judo Club and a feature on North Bristol Running Group, which organises informal training runs throughout the week, starting from Bradley Stoke Surgery.
On a more sober note, there’s news of South Gloucestershire Council’s plans to trim a further £40m from its annual spending, in response to national austerity measures. Four consultations are currently running to gauge the public’s view of various options for cost savings.
The planning application for the £102m North Fringe to Hengrove MetroBus was approved by South Gloucestershire Council on 9th September, meaning that construction of extensive new bus lanes in Bradley Stoke could start early next year, provided that final approval is granted by the Department for Transport. The magazine looks at what sort of bus services we can expect once the anticipated two-and-a-half years of roadworks have been completed.
A special business feature looks at how the lake at the West Country Water Park on Trench Lane has made a name for itself as a specialist triathlon training centre, attracting thousands of athletes from across the South West each year.
For those who don’t live in Bradley Stoke, you’ll be able to pick up a copy of the town’s number one news magazine at Bradley Stoke Library (from Monday) or read it online (from Sunday evening).
