Bradley Stoke: Review of 2011

Posted on Tuesday 3rd January 2012 at 8:08 am by SH (Editor)

Welcome to Bradley Stoke

2011 was another busy year for The Journal with 349 news articles and more than 1,000 photos published. Today we take a look back at the main events of the past year in Bradley Stoke.

For a visual record, check out The Journal’s Bradley Stoke Review of 2011 Slideshow on PicasaWeb (also available on YouTube with a couple of audio extras!).

The Journal’s readership grew by a spectacular 75% last year and we look forward to continuing to bring you the town’s most comprehensive news and photo coverage in 2012.

Remember, you can make sure you’re the first to hear all the local news by:

Damaged electricity cables at Brook Way Activity Centre

January began with a revelation from the Town Council that electricity cables powering floodlights around the hard court at Brook Way Activity Centre had been “maliciously severed“. The damage followed a period of friction between the youth club based at the centre and residents of neighbouring properties. Worse was to come later in the year, when a floodlight column was sawn through and collapsed onto the court.

Local police never got to the bottom of either incident but at least they will now be more accessible to residents following the opening of a ‘beat post’ at the Willow Brook Centre, thanks to funding from the centre’s management and the Town Council.

We also learned that the town centre itself would be gaining more residents, with the announcement that Tesco had sold part of the site to McCarthy & Stone, developers of retirement apartments.
