BRADLEY STOKE MATTERS

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

The pandemic has been a dark and stormy rain cloud hanging over us all year, giving us some real low points. But, as the end of 2021 approaches, as always we’ve chosen to focus on the good things. As I write this over 50 million people in the UK have had a Covid vaccine, that’s 88% of the population aged 12 and above. When you consider that this time last year not even one dose had been administered yet, that’s a pretty impressive statistic!

The majority of our customers have kept their businesses going, with many quickly learning to adapt and some even going on to thrive, which is wonderful news. 

More good news is that Christmas is back this year and we have plenty of local Services, celebrations and events detailed inside our December edition – OUT NOW!.

However you celebrate the festive season, it just remains for me to wish you joy and peace.  Long may the “good news” stories continue – we love hearing them…

Wishing you all a Very Merry Christmas & a Happy & Healthy 2022! 

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 .
