Road Trenches in Brize Avenue

Thursday, April 17th, 2014 by Judge

This is an extract of the second email I’ve sent to QUVL:

Turn left off Thatcham Avenue into Brize Avenue. New trenches have now appeared from the Barrett development across the road from this junction and on around the right bend.
The infill from these trenches is rapidly departing as is the infill around the raised manholes.
I don’t drive a 4×4, so perhaps for the benefit of us ordinary car drivers you could ask the appropriate contractor to do a better job backfilling these trenches?

If anyone else is getting fed up driving over these perhaps we could start some sort of petition to get them to do a better job!

Charity Auction in Quedgeley

Tuesday, April 15th, 2014 by Clive

I am arranging an auction in the Quedgeley Community Centre on Saturday 1st November 2014 which will be in aid of my charity Bulldog Rescue.

I would love to see you and as many others as you can get together at the sale and if possible let me have an item as a donation from you to be auctioned, I will need to know about that well beforehand so as to produce a sale schedule.

We are hopeful that we have the services of Mr.Michael Pratt as our Auctioneer.

A bar will be available with pre sale viewing.

Tuesday, April 15th, 2014 by Clive

“Help if we Can” (who raise money for good causes) are holding a Bring and Buy Giant Sale at the Quedgeley Community Centre in School Lane, on Saturday 31st May in aid of the Parish Church (which has a number of major needs on the maintenance front).

The day will see Hall 1 as a Bring and Buy Sale where all goods and items donated will be sold by our members and the proceeds will go directly to the church. Hall 2 will see table top sales where people can pay for the table (this money goes to the church) and the money they raise is for themselves or their good cause.

Cllr Steve Smith – Quedgeley Parish Council.

Gloucester Crime Figures

Monday, April 7th, 2014 by Clive

This is a message from Alan Hardacre at the Neighbourhood Watch office Bearland, Gloucester for Neighbourhood Watch and Paws on Patrol members:

At the end of the Policing year, crime in Gloucester has again year on year dropped to a new low. Overall crime has dropped by 290 offences representing a 3% reduction. Domestic burglary reduced by 9 offences and non-domestic burglary by 110 offences, therefore burglary is down 8%.

Theft was slightly up by less than 1% and Criminal Damage was down by 4%.

These are again good results and thanks must go to you all for playing your small part in helping to reduce crime in Gloucester and make it a safer place to live. Please keep up the good work and motivate your neighbours to play their part. There are still too many offences committed involving insecure houses, garages, sheds and cars.
