Posted on Monday 4th January 2016 at 9:53 am by SH (Editor)

January 2016 edition of the Bradley Stoke Journal news magazine.

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.

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

Posted on Sunday 6th December 2015 at 10:19 pm by SH (Editor)

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.
