The January edition of the Bradley Stoke Journal magazine has been dropping on doormats over the past few days.
In this issue, we report on the ‘double whammy’ of roadworks that motorists will have to endure during 2016, with South Gloucestershire Council confirming its intention to commence major works at the the Aztec West Roundabout despite the MetroBus-related works at the Bradley Stoke Way/Woodlands Lane junction over-running until August.
We also hear from a group of elderly residents at Woodlands Park in north Bradley Stoke, who say the extended MetroBus roadworks are causing them real hardship.
Local girls feature in several stories this month, including Paige Holden, who has taken the karting world by storm; Ann Rose Biju, who has been named St John Ambulance Cadet of the Year; and Neha Meta, who served as Bristol Youth Mayor in 2015.
In sport, we report on the first black belts earned by members of Bradley Stoke Jiu Jitsu Club and two beginners’ running courses (organised by Sole Sisters and North Bristol Running Group) that start in January.
Local schools also feature prominently, with photos from the Christmas productions at St Chad’s, Stoke Lodge, Bradley Stoke Community School (BSCS), St Mary’s and Meadowbrook, plus an article on the latest students at BSCS to achieve Duke of Edinburgh Awards.
In business, we report on a prestigious award for local accountancy firm Dunkley’s, the refurbishment and expansion of Riverside Leisure Club in Little Stoke and the opening of a new branch of AT Skin and Laser (offering beauty & aesthetic treatments) in north Bradley Stoke.
Other stories cover MetroBus contractor Alun Griffiths building bridges with local schools, the conviction of a local man for reckless transmission of HIV, the sale of Filton Airfield to a Malaysian developer and local leisure centre operator Circadian Trust’s tenth anniversary celebrations.
We also have the latest reports from Bradley Stoke in Bloom and the Three Brooks Nature Conservation Group.
