BRADLEY STOKE MATTERS

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

Spring is here and the arrival of sunshine and blue skies is welcome. Whilst we enjoy this shift in season, our hearts go out to those suffering in Ukraine. Working as a community we can all make small gestures to help. The Willow Brook Centre organised a collection mid-March and your response in gifting donations was incredible.  I’ve been asked when the next collection is and also how Bradley Stoke can open up its homes to refugees from Ukraine. What a lovely community we are part of. 

Our April/May edition is out and also available to view on line and we have a jam packed issue for you this month!  It is lovely to see so many events being planned again across the community and we have included as many as we can in this issue for you, from Easter trails to Live Music events and Comedy Nights.  Keep your diary free for the Town Council’s Festival this year, back after a two year absence and in conjunction with the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Celebrations 3rd-5th June.  Have you seen the yellow fish appearing on our streets?  Read all about them on page 7.  Thought about Volunteering? – see pages 16-17. We have Easter messages from our local Churches, along with services and other Easter events – and so much more besides – enjoy the read!!

Now in our 17th year Bradley Stoke & Little Stoke Gifford Matters continues to help our advertisers’ businesses grow and flourish.
