Out now: December 2015 edition of the Bradley Stoke Journal magazine

December 2015 edition of the Bradley Stoke Journal news magazine.

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

In this issue, we have a update on the MetroBus construction works in Bradley Stoke and Stoke Gifford, including the news that Woodlands Lane is to remain closed for longer than initially planned due to the unexpected complexity of underground services encountered around the Bradley Stoke Way junction. The article also includes an exclusive timeline of future works planned for different sections of Bradley Stoke Way throughout 2016.

The next phase of MetroBus, the so-called Cribbs Patchway MetroBus Extension, which will link Parkway Station to Cribbs Causeway via the planned new development on the former Filton Airfield, also figures prominently, as SGC has opened a public consultation on the proposed scheme.

We have reports on local events that have taken place over the last month, including the town councils’ fireworks display, the Bradley Stoke Remembrance parade and the Willow Brook Centre’s Christmas lights switch-on event.

We also feature South Gloucestershire Council’s (SGC’s) consultation on plans to almost halve the size of the black waste bin, in a bid to reduce the amount of waste going to landfill, meet recycling targets and save money.

There’s also news that SGC plans to reduce the opt-in charge for emptying green bins, introduced in 2014.

Other stories cover the planned £3.6m redevelopment of Bradley Stoke Leisure Centre, the visit of a Kenyan headteacher to Bradley Stoke Community School and updates from Bradley Stoke in Bloom, the Three Brooks Nature Conservation Group and the Bradley Stoke Lions Club.

On page 21, you will find a useful guide to church services, shopping hours and bus services over Christmas and New Year, so don’t forget to keep the magazine handy for reference over the festive period.
