Out this weekend: September 2014 edition of the Bradley Stoke Journal magazine

September 2014 edition of the Bradley Stoke Journal magazine.

The September 2014 edition of the Bradley Stoke Journal magazine has been dropping on doormats this weekend.

This month’s feature story looks at the illegal traveller encampment (the second within the space of two months) that appeared on a grass verge alongside Bradley Stoke Way over the August bank holiday weekend. Mayor John Ashe says he fears travellers now see the town as “a soft touch” and he has suggested allowing the grass to grow long on other potential sites further down Bradley Stoke Way, in order to deter a third incursion.

There’s also news about how the town council has come under fire for continuing to examine proposals for a new building on the Brook Way Activity Centre site, despite the results of a public consultation held earlier this year showing overwhelming support for steps to be taken to improve car parking at the site, which is shared with Bradley Stoke Surgery.

The town’s controversial new war memorial was officially dedicated last month and the magazine contains a report and photos of the ceremony, which was attended by the Lord Lieutenant of Gloucestershire.

A-level and GCSE examination results at Bradley Stoke Community School are also covered, with analysis of the headline figures and photos of the top-achieving students.

The Bradley Stoke Carnival, held on 23rd August, is featured over four pages, with a report from the carnival committee, photos and a review of the bands that played at the event.
