Local Community Groups
Beat Manager Stoke Gifford
As part of the Neighbourhood Policing Team we regularly react to issues raised by our communities and openly invite members of the community to take active part in the "SAFER STRONGER COMMUNITY GROUP" Meeting where Public Priorities are decided upon.
The next meeting is on 16 November 2011 at 7:00 PM at Little Stoke Community Hall.
Do you care about your community?
Do you want to be heard and get things done?
Then why not come along to the next Safer Stronger Community Group (SSCG) meeting for your area? SSCGs influence how services are delivered locally, establish longer-term plans to improve areas, help prevent future problems, and deal with current local issues.
There are 20 Safer Stronger Community Groups across South Gloucestershire for residents to attend and raise local issues that concern them. They can give their views on possible improvements to further strengthen their communities and keep these safe places to live and work.
The meetings are also attended by partner agencies, including South Gloucestershire Council, Avon and Somerset Police, Avon Fire and Rescue Service, NHS South Gloucestershire, Town and Parish Councils and other local organisations. These organisations work together on the issues raised and often involve the community in implementing solutions.

Our branch in Stoke Gifford was founded in 1928, this was at a time when standards were very high and we aim to maintain those standards within our branch. Our Branch covers the whole of the Parish of Stoke Gifford and also Bradley Stoke.
We have a Branch Legion Standard to remind us of what the Legion means, to honour all those who have made the final sacrifice and those who are suffering from their service to our Country. Our current Standard is fairly new; are old Standard is preserved in a sealed unit inside the Baptist Church on Rock Lane.
Currently we have 43 members, who all work hard for the British Legion. We do not have a Legion Club, so all members join in to support the Poppy Appeal, to promote and help towards our Welfare Assist, to share and encourage comradeship.
Our interest is to explore the archaeology of the Southern Brooks area of South Gloucestershire.
This area includes Filton, Patchway Stoke Gifford, Harry Stoke, Little Stoke, and Bradley Stoke.
We hold meetings at the Aztec Hotel at 7 p.m. and engage in desktop studies and fieldwork.
