Bradley Stoke Ladies’ football team has started its third season in the Gloucestershire County Women’s Football League, playing its opening match on Sunday 17th September. The season had already got off to a great start with the news that the squad had successfully secured funding through South Gloucestershire Council’s Member Awarded Funding scheme, which supports local

voluntary community groups. Team manager Martin Lee said: “The club would like to thank local South Gloucestershire Councillors Paul Hardwick, John Ashe, Roger Avenin and Brian Hopkinson for supporting and sponsoring the application. Special thanks to Paul who managed the process for our application on our behalf. The money will be used to purchase new football kit for the team.”

The photo above shows the Bradley Stoke Ladies’ squad with Cllr Paul Hardwick presenting the cheque to manager Martin Lee and coaches Ross Lee, Matt Smith and Mark Tickner. The Bradley Stoke Ladies’ squad trains every Tuesday at Bradley Stoke Community School. Any players interested in joining the club can email Martin Lee at for further information.

Cloudy2Clear Windows – Service With A Smile!

It’s been a crazy few months for Cloudy2Clear Windows. The company which specialises in repairing windows which are steamed up, broken or damaged by replacing the panes – not the frames has grown rapidly as homeowners take advantage of their services. Managing Director Graham Bayley feels that it’s all about service. ‘Our product is simple. If your double glazing

is misted up we can replace the glass at a fraction of the cost of a new window, in any type of frame, and with a new 5 year guarantee. But it’s not just about saving people money, although that obviously helps. Many tradespeople have struggled since last year and I honestly feel that during the good times a minority perhaps didn’t focus on customer care as much as they should have done. We make sure we turn up when we say we will, do

the job the customer requires and leave their house as clean as a whistle. I often get comments back from customers on how they really didn’t expect that sort of service which, in a way, is very sad for the service industry as a whole.’ Cloudy2Clear service the Bradley Stoke, Little Stoke, Stoke Lodge, Patchway and Stoke Gifford areas and Graham is finding that his approach is a major factor in his success. ‘The truth is

that it’s not just the personal satisfaction that I get from doing a good job but also it makes good business sense. I get a huge amount of business from friends and family of people I’ve done work for, which just goes to show how much a little bit of effort is appreciated.’ So, if your windows are steamed up, broken or damaged give Graham a call for a free quotation on 0800 61 21 118 and he’ll be happy to help!
