Council noticeboard is ten years late
Trench Lane Boot Sale starts 7th April
town council noticeboard has finally been installed in Bradley Stoke’s ‘new town centre’, more than ten years after the facility first opened its doors to the public in October 2008. The hub of the town, and the location with by far the highest footfall, would seem the obvious place to display public notices and other communications, but for some reason the council
and the centre management could never come to a suitable arrangement – until now. With the town’s previous five public noticeboards nearing the end of their life, council members agreed to follow a recommendation of their annual strategic planning meeting and purchase five replacement noticeboards plus additional ones for new sites at the skate park and the Willow Brook Centre. A POPULAR car boot sale that takes place near Bradley Stoke is due to re-open for the 2019 season later this month. The weekly Trench Lane Boot Sale, held on Sundays on a farmland site opposite the entrance to Woodlands Golf Club (BS32 4JZ), will open for the first time this year on 7th April, subject to ground conditions. As in previous years, the sale will open to buyers at 7am. Trading goes on until around
3pm, although the number of buyers usually drops off after midday. Sellers are charged £7 for a car or £10 for a van. For buyers, there is an entrance charge of £1 for a car or 50p for a pedestrian. Free parking is provided in adjacent fields. The organisers ask sellers to arrive no earlier than 6am (when the site opens), to avoid traffic queues forming on Trench Lane. The final sale in 2019 will take place on Sunday 27th October.
