The February 2015 edition of the Bradley Stoke Journal magazine has been dropping on doormats this weekend.
This month’s headline story concerns the selection of a contractor for Bradley Stoke’s new £260k skate park in the grounds of the leisure centre. Subject to planning approval, construction is expected to start in July and be completed by the end of September.
Also featuring on the front cover is the Hope for Morgan campaign, which is aiming to raise the £70,000 needed to send local cerebral palsy sufferer Morgan Walker to the USA for two operations that have the potential to significantly improve his quality of life.
Other stories cover Meadowbrook Primary School joining the Olympus Academy Trust, the burglary victim who was spurred to form a new Neighbourhood Watch group and a new series of weekly buggy walks that has started-up in north Bristol.
We also hear that South Gloucestershire Council has admitted that it isn’t doing enough to keep residents informed about current and planned major roadworks in the Bristol North Fringe. [Ed: Naturally, The Journal has offered to help the council out.]
The Greens are the latest political party to reveal their candidate for the Filton and Bradley Stoke seat in the 2015 general election: Dr Diana Warner, who lives in Filton and works at the Stoke Gifford & Conygre Medical Centre.
Other stories cover the renaming of the local Rotary Club, a look ahead to the upcoming season at Bradley Stoke Cricket Club, two new sponsorship deals for Bradley Stoke Youth FC and the latest news on the rollout of superfast broadband in Bradley Stoke.
We also have the latest reports from Bradley Stoke in Bloom and the Three Brooks Nature Conservation Group.
