Avon and Somerset Police have a dedicated team of officers serving the parish of Stoke Gifford, headed by Neighbourhood Beat Manager PC Elizabeth Ball.

There are currently two Police Community Support Officers (PCSOs) in the team: Archie Flook and Pat Gardener.

For more information, visit the Stoke Gifford Beat page on the Avon and Somerset Police website.

The Stoke Gifford beat area consists of the South Gloucestershire Council wards of Stoke Gifford and Little Stoke.

N.B. The Stoke Gifford ward includes parts of the south of Bradley Stoke parish (town), so these come within the Stoke Gifford police beat area.

Community Engagement Forum for Stoke Gifford

South Gloucestershire Community Engagement Forums.

Community Engagement Forums (CEFs), previously known as Safer and Stronger Community Groups are about listening and responding to local people’s real issues. People in their communities know best what works for them and what their real needs are.

The aims are:

  • To promote pride in the local area as a safe, thriving and pleasant place to live, work and play
  • To reduce crime, disorder and drug and alcohol misuse in the area
  • To empower local people to have a greater voice and influence over local decision making and service delivery by increasing the strength, capacity and engagement of the local community
  • To improve the quality of life of people in the local area by identifying community aspirations, needs and local priorities.

CEFs have been developed through working with various partner agencies including the Avon & Somerset Police, Avon Fire & Rescue, health, town and parish councils and local organisations. CEFs are also about working in partnership with elected members; they aim to provide a platform for building strong and cohesive communities in which everyone, regardless of background, has a real sense of community involvement.

CEFs also support groups who wish to make a positive difference and improve their own communities. This is achieved by supporting community engagement initiatives.

Stoke Gifford is served by the Stoke Gifford, Stoke Park and Cheswick Community Engagement Forum. The next (virtual) meeting of the forum takes place on Monday 1st February 2021 using the Microsoft Teams videoconferencing platform (7pm start). To request to join the meeting please email communityengagement@southglos.gov.uk [minutes and date of next meeting to follow]
