In Brief

Beginners’ running course starting soon

Town council strategic planning decisions

orth Bristol Running Group (NBRG) is once again offering its popular beginners’ course, starting in October. The course will run for eight weeks and support you to reach the goal of completing a 5km (3.1 mile) run or jog by the time you graduate at a local parkrun (even if you have never run before!). The course will be held on Friday evenings at Bradley Stoke Community School (netball courts) from 6.30pm and the cost of the course is £10 in total. Over the eight weeks, NBRG’s run leaders and helpers will support you to gradually increase the distance that you run whilst following a structured training session which will include warm up, stretching, running, a short sprint and a warm down. The first session will take place on Friday 13th October. Interested in joining? Please

Decisions reached following discussions at Bradley Stoke Town Council’s annual strategic planning meeting in early September include: • To obtain costings for a package of additional security measures at council sites and public open spaces following a foiled attempt by travellers to gain access to the Jubilee Centre site (see page 42) • To obtain quotes to install a multi-use games area (MUGA) within part of the existing hard courts at the Jubilee Centre • To obtain quotes for replacing the damaged high safety netting at Baileys Court Activity Centre, which protects vehicles in the car park from cricket balls • To ascertain the cost of licences and any relevant restrictions to work undertaken to plant trees and flowers in Bradley Stoke ● Minutes of all town council meetings can be viewed at
