The online community magazine for Bradley Stoke, Little Stoke and Stoke Gifford

It is great to feel like we are finally making progress with cautiously emerging out of lockdown this month.  Many of our outdoor sports clubs have resumed activities from the end of March and are all looking forward to finally getting out and playing their respective sports once again. Who could have foreseen the last 12 months when we first went into lockdown at the end of March last year!  The last year has emphasised once again the fantastic, strong community that the whole of the Five Stokes area has become and it is great to see how we are supporting each other and also ‘keeping it local’ by supporting local businesses where we can.  

We are very much still working hard to share the positive news from across the area, keeping residents up to date with the multiple and diverse activities taking place across the whole community. As well as promoting local community news and events, the magazine is a trusty directory for local businesses and traders, some of whom have been advertising with us since our very first issue back in 2005 and the majority for 10 years or more!  Whatever you need, you will find a local business that can help, within the pages of our community magazine. If you would like to promote your business or services to the local community or raise awareness of a local group, please do get in touch via [email protected].  You can also download copies of recent editions of the magazines here .

Best Front Garden Competition 2021:Until the rain stopped I didn’t even dare think about this years competition but as summer seems to finally arrived and I’ve received a nudge or two I thought maybe it’s time I did :) so please find attached the 2021 entry from. Judging is usually held mid-July with the prize giving a week or two later (we need a little time to have the trophies engraved) We have just the one category which is best front garden although we have looked at including back gardens and single pots we don’t think there is quite enough interest to make it viable. We really hope you would like to enter and that this year we can hold an award ceremony for all the entrants, instead of just the 1st, 2nd & 3rd winners. So good luck and we look forward to visiting all your beautiful gardens. Best wishesSara & the BSiB team ... See MoreSee Less
