Bradley Stoke Tesco Extra team on the look out for further community projects

Staff from the Tesco Extra store in Bradley Stoke decorate a room at Patchway Community Centre.

Staff from the Tesco Extra store in Bradley Stoke are looking for suggestions for further community projects to get involved with after successfully completing their latest assignment, at Patchway Community Centre.

Eleven members of staff took a day out from the store to brighten up the small hall at the centre by giving it a lick of paint.

Dawn Richards, community champion at the Bradley Stoke store, says the work squads are intended to give something back to the community whilst at the same time helping to foster team spirit.

“Having a lot of people on a big job like this certainly makes it easier and we were happy to provide the paint and decorating equipment too.”

Previous projects the staff have undertaken include renovating the ladies toilet blocks at St Mary’s Old Boys Rugby Club and, in conjunction with other Tesco stores in the Bristol area, decorating a St Mungo’s hostel for the homeless.

Anyone wishing to suggest a suitable community project should write to Dawn Richards at Tesco Extra, Bradley Stoke BS32 8EF or email
