Kingsway BMX Track

Tuesday, September 30th, 2014 by flumper

I have to say, we were a little wary when our 8 year old showed an interest in going to the new BMX track. When you drive past, it is always very busy, with children considerably older, so we did have concerns about the language that maybe used; it was also a little disheartening to see the damage to the bin within weeks of it being opened.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m fully aware these words are in his vocabulary, however in my little bubble I like to think they are not ;)

So one afternoon we ventured down with our 8 and 4 year old and I have to say how pleasantly surprised we were. Yes there were adults, older children, girls, boys… However, it was great to see such a wide age range of people using a community facility together.

The older children, encouraged my youngest as he wobbled round. Gave him the space so that he didn’t take them out too when he fell off :lol: and they had a great time.

What a great addition it has been to Kingsway!

(My Dad did suggest that perhaps the local schools need to take the children around litter picking – that way they may learn not to drop rubbish in the first place) ;)

Scouting is Coming to Kingsway

Tuesday, June 4th, 2013 by Julie Preston

My name is Julie Preston and I am trying to get Beavers, Cubs and Scout groups running in Kingsway. We have secured the hire of the school hall at Kingsway Primary School and have some funding to start running meetings.

If your son/daughter is interested in coming to a ‘Meet and Greet’ session, please contact me on 01452 724241 or you can e-mail me on chocpeanuts@googlemail.com and I can provide you with the necessary information.

The ages for each group are as follows:

Beavers:  6 to 8     years
Cubs:      8 to 101/2  years
Scouts:   101/2 to 14 years

At the meeting we will be providing information about what Scouting is all about and what sort of activities we will try and organise.

Meetings are held during term time and we will also have access to District Events which can sometimes involve Fun Days, Chess Competitions, Science Workshops and Weekend Camps.

To make the group successful we obviously need children to join the organisation.
Having been involved in helping run Beavers, Cubs and Scouts at Quedgeley, I feel that it would be an enjoyable experience for any child.

Kingsway Residents Association Meeting 20/3/13

Tuesday, March 26th, 2013 by Clive

This was a lively and well-attended meeting. The official minutes will be added ASAP, meanwhile here’s some of the things I noted:

Kingsway Cubs/Scouts/Beavers:

Julie Preston outlined her plans to start local Cubs / Scouts / Beavers groups within 1 month.
She has provisionally booked Thursdays for the meetings (at Kingsway School): Beavers for 1 hour, then Cubs & Scouts – (will be combined initially) and would very much like to hear from anybody interested in attending/enrolling.
Julie can be reached on (Gloucs) 724241.

Daniels Brook:

Charles Chandler from the Environment Agency explained the reasons for the culling of the trees around Daniels Brook (removed to allow improvement in flood defenses). Charles said that replanting is already taking place.

The Reachout Project:

Andy Jarrett and Jess Price talked about the “Reachout Project”, a project aimed at reaching out to local youths aged 13-18. Jess is asking for details of any local youths who might benefit from their contact.
They are also looking for volunteers to work with them for 6-9 months.
More details (including contact information) available here.


Andy Smith from QUVL talked about Newhaven Road (the name of the Naas Lane Link Road).

He said that the second Kingsway school is on target for September.

Football Pitch #1 should be ready and adopted by the end of April.

The Community Centre, Sports Pavilion and BMX Track should all arrive together – 12 months from now. He said that there will be a “Trim Trail” (a running track with “informal outdoor gym equipment”) running around the outside of the sports pitches, and he also mentioned that QUVL will be looking to engage with interested parties who wish to use/manage (“take ownership of”) these facilities over the next few months.

Joe Logan

Just a personal note of congratulations to Joe from me on your first public meeting… :)
