HGV Traffic (Asda)

Monday, February 24th, 2014 by JoeL

Hi,

There have been a number of comments regarding HGV traffic going to Asda and having spoken to the Council, I can confirm Asda delivery lorries lorries are not allowed to enter or leave Kingsway using the A38 traffic lights, as the planning consent directs them to enter via Waterwells. Also they should not be parking on Newhaven Road for other than a short period while the loading yard gates are opened.

The Council have asked that any instances of lorries using the wrong route or parking on Newhaven Road, especially parking on the verge, should be reported to Joann.Meneaud@gloucester.gov.uk, with times, registration numbers and preferably photographs.

Regards,
Joe
Chair KRA

Kingsway Residents Association Public Meeting – Wed 10/7/13

Tuesday, July 9th, 2013 by JoeL

Hi Everyone,

A reminder that the next public meeting takes place on Wednesday 10 July at 7pm in Kingsway Primary School.

In response to your feedback at the last meeting, this one will have a different format with no guest speaker. We have invited our Parish, City and County Councillors for a ‘Question and Answer’ session in which you will be able to put your points directly to our elected representatives.

Please pass the message around as there won’t be any banners going up to publicise this event.

We hope to see you there.

Joe

Barry Thurnell RIP

Tuesday, June 18th, 2013 by JoeL

Dear Kingsway Villagers,

It is with regret that I inform you that Barry Thurnell sadly passed away last Tuesday while on holiday.

Some of you will know of Barry and his work for the Kingsway community and although many of you do not know him, unbeknown to you, the majority of you will have been affected by his work on your behalf.

Barry joined the committee of the Kingsway Residents’ Association (KRA) in November 2012 and was given the role of Vice Chairman and more recently he joined Quedgeley Parish Council specifically to represent the views of Kingsway residents. He has been a strong supporter of KRA and despite a health scare earlier this year he was fit enough to join us at this year’s ‘The Big Lunch’.

Our thoughts are with his wife Trudy and the rest his family at this most difficult of times.

Kingsway – The Big Lunch (2013)

Sunday, June 2nd, 2013 by JoeL

Hi,

And thank you to all of you who joined us for this afternoon’s ‘The Big Lunch’.
We hope you agree that it was a great day and unlike previous years the weather was very kind to us.

A special thank you to Dave Talbot for his organisation of the day and along with Steve Brooks they managed to secure substantial sponsorship from local firms and businesses without which Kingsway Residents’ Association wouldn’t have been able to stage the event. These sponsors included Quedgeley Urban Village Ltd, Quedgeley Parish Council, Oxbode Housing Association, Severnvale Housing, Bromford Living, Guinness Hermitage, Quedgeley Community Trust, The Capital Venue, Tesco, The Bumblebee and Stagecoach.

Thank you too to the other people (you know who you are), who helped to run the event and make it a great success.
Please let us have your thoughts on the event and whether you would like us to stage a similar one next year.
We are also keen to hear from you if you could help to run this or any other event for the KRA.

Thank you for helping make today the success that it undoubtedly was.

Kingsway Residents’ Association is hosting ‘The Big Lunch’ event in the Park, off Woodvale, on Sunday 2nd June.

Why not come along and join in the fun between 12 and 4pm?

This is a chance for Kingsway villagers to come together for a picnic lunch and enjoy the entertainment we have laid on including: Live music by ‘Sweet Enough’, Refreshments, Face Painting, Donkey Rides, Bouncy Castle, Kid’s Rides, Tombola, Coconut Shy, Craft Stalls and many more.
