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

Summer 2020 sees the 15th anniversary of the very first edition of Bradley Stoke Matters back in late July 2005!

We might not be able to celebrate such a milestone as we had planned but it is definitely an achievement worth noting.  I cannot believe how fast the years have passed and how much the locality has grown and developed in this time. The current situation has emphasised once again the fantastic, strong community that the whole of the Five Stokes area has become.

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 .
