* Cider, rugby, fresh air, walking and raising money for one of the town’s best-loved causes. What could be better?
Weston Hospicecare’s first Men’s March takes place this weekend.
It is the male-version of the Moonlight Beach Walk and will see men lace up their hiking boots and walk 10 miles to raise money for the hospice in Uphill.
Registration at the Grand Pier begins at 11am, before the start at noon on Saturday.
Hikers will take in Weston Woods and Sand Bay on their trip, before ending at the pier for the Six Nations clash between England and Wales at 4.45pm.
Entry, priced approximately £20, includes a free pasty, pint of Thatches Gold and souvenir glass.

Following last weekend’s spectacular against-the-odds win over Torquay United, the Seagulls will hope to carry that performance into their game against fellow strugglers Hungerford Town.
Kick-off for the proverbial six-pointer is 3pm at The Optima Stadium.
* A skittles night is planned for Saturday, to raise money for Birnbeck Regeneration Trust.
It will be held in Worle at The Woodspring, in High Street.
Entry costs £6 and includes sandwiches.
