Patchway sports and community organisations update | April 2024

Patchway’s sports clubs and community organisations have provided inspiring updates at the Council’s Parks, Open Spaces, Transport & Planning Committee Meeting on 9 April 2024. 

Bristol Jets BMX Club reported a successful AGN with a mix of new and old committee members. Through a local promotional drive, membership has increased on last year, and the Club, and they have been awarded a £500 Access Sport grant for new helmets. Wednesday ‘Gate Nights’ are well-attended by local riders and those from further afield including Wales and Gloucester. The Regional Racing programme has started with Bristol Jets hosting on 30th June.  

The national season has started with experienced riders travelling the UK to compete, three riders competing in the European heats, and three riders attending the World Championships in the USA in May. The Club will be taking part in the Throwback Festival at Scott Park in July.  

Pretoria Road Allotment Society reported that the allotment is busy with only two empty plots available, and a successful Easter Egg hunt bringing families into the space. Rob from the team has been delivering talks for budding gardeners including on no dig beds! 

The WECA Pollinator Grant project has been delayed by the bad weather though planning still progresses with engagement with schools to ensure the new space is suitable for young people and teachers.  

Stoke Lane Football Club reported that the Club has achieved two-star FA accreditation and is now working towards three-star accreditation , and are looking to introduce more teams into Scott Park.  

Patchway Town Football Club reported that the two senior teams were fighting relegation battles, though the Under 18s are pushing for promotion and into the League Cup Semi-Final! 

Patchway Cricket Club are eagerly awaiting the new season - and the end of the rain – and reported an increase in the number of Youth Teams who will use the new boundary rope granted by Patchway Town Council.  

Patchway & Charlton Hayes Wildlife Group is awaiting further developments on local nature projects, though the online BS34 Wildlife Group is going from strength to strength with over 400 members. 

Patchway Sports & Social Club reported a renewed committee taking on some of the challenges facing the Club, though with a positive approach and aiming to ensure the Club is a key part of the local community. The Club is rolling out a diverse and mixed programme of events for members and prospect members, and seeking to improve the garden area with the support of the Council groundstaff.  

Chair of the Committee Roger Loveridge said, ’Another great round-up of activity from the sports facilities and community users and groups this quarter. To hear of young people from Patchway travelling to Europe and the USA to represent their local Club is just fantastic’.
