Local Information

The Hut

History

List of people who made it possible to have this hall by donating whatever they could afford

This ex-army building was brought from Avonmouth by a horse drawn coal wagon after World War I.  The wagon belonged to Mr Hinder who lived on The Common where four detached houses now stand.

The Treasurer at the time, Mr Reginald Hunt, kept a list of all those people that gave what they could afford to make this possible.  Mr Reginald Hunt was the first treasurer and grandfather of Mr Edward Hunt who kindly had the list framed and donated it to the hall.

Mr Hiatt Baker owned the land and charged a pepper corn rent for having the hall on his land. The hall has been well used over the years, even used as a classroom for Patchway C of E School.

The Townswomen’s Guild

We are introducing our Guild to all ladies now residing in the Stoke Lodge and The Common Parish Council area.  We are a national organisation and we run our Guild as part of it.

We meet on the first Wednesday of the month at The North Patchway Hall at 7-7:30pm as well as on Monday afternoons from 2pm until 4pm for craft and a natter.  We also knit for Southmead Hospital prem baby unit and make blankets for other Organisations ie Salvation Army and several elderly people’s homes.  We do a number of things to help fill the boxes that are sent abroad to those in need at Christmas time.  We also support a new Charity each year.  This year our Christmas Fair will be held on Saturday December 2nd at the North Patchway Hall at 2:15pm.

We are run by a committee of 10 who organise speakers, outings and fun evenings including theatre trips.  We take part in the Bristol North West Federation’s activities, which is made up of 11 Guilds.

Why not come and join us for a coffee morning on November 8th at the North Patchway Hall 10:30 till 12 to see some of the things we have done and what our Guild is all about.  We would love to meet anyone with an interest in joining our organisation, or would just like to find out about us.  We think the most important thing is friendship and helping each other when needed as well as perhaps being able to chat about our worries and troubles, they do say a trouble shared is a trouble halved. So you will see we have a lot to offer, please do try and join us on this day.  You may park in the Travellers’ Rest Car Park.

You may call me Margaret on 01454 883980 with any queries.

Policing and Neighbourhood Watch

Although crime is very low in the Stoke Lodge area there is no room for complacency and we are pleased to be a Neighbourhood Watch area.

The Neighbourhood Watch Scheme’s mission is to ‘Bring neighbours together to create strong, friendly, active communities’

We are grateful to all our local residents who take the trouble to keep a look out locally.  If you’d like to be more involved with Neighbourhood Watch please contact our Clerk.  We always need more neighbours to be a point of contact.
