Bradley Stoke pair clinch trophy in delayed championship final

Bradley Stoke in Bloom (BSiB) autumn update By Sara Messenger, BSiB e are slowly getting back to ‘normal’ although as Covid-19 recedes the wet wintry weather arrives! Our last few workdays were spent going over some of our established areas, the Aztec triangle, the Brook Way rose garden, the community herb garden and the Baileys Court corner. Although the weather was chilly, the atmosphere was not, as we welcomed Emma, Jo-Hannah and Amanda to the group. Bradley Stoke Rotary Club have approached us as they would like to plant purple crocus bulbs along with a small plaque to highlight their work in helping to eradicate polio. We had hoped they could be planted on the bare bank by Rabbit Roundabout although I have now unofficially

W

been told that is about to be planted with shrubs, so we are looking at another couple of sites. More good news is that at August’s Bradley Stoke Town Council meeting, the councillors offered to fund the replacement of the figures stolen from our Manor Farm Roundabout display – Debbie the calf and Treacle the dog. The town clerk has been able to source some suitable replacements and it was agreed at the most recent meeting that they could be purchased. We hope to install them as soon as we reasonably can, along with some additional security measures. As always, we greatly appreciate all the support we are given by the town council from both the councillors and the staff. Without them we wouldn’t be able to do what we do.

The Championship competition finals at Thornbury Indoor Bowls Club should have been played in March but were delayed due to the Coronavirus outbreak, writes Arthur Allan of Bradley Stoke Bowls Club. The Men’s Pairs event was eventually played on 11th October between Michael Cove and Dennis Overton, of Bradley Stoke Bowls Club, and their opponents David Quick and James Wood. By the 15th end (of the 21 played) the Bradley Stoke

players had a lead of 22 shots to 8. However, their opponents pressed hard to cut the score to 22-18 with three ends left. Eventually the Bradley Stoke team won 24-19 after a threehour game. Dennis revealed after the game that, to avoid Covid exposure, he had not played bowls for seven months, and that having lost one of his bowls, he was playing with a borrowed set a size larger than usual! ● Website: bsbc.webs.com
