Regrettably, there is no bank holiday this weekend, but there is still plenty to be enjoyed.

Right across Weston there are great activities for all the family.

* North Somerset Arts Week enters its final few days.

The festival of the creative arts takes place every other year and productive crafters, photographers, sculptors, painters and more have been showing off their pieces.

* The British Waterski championships are returning to Weston this weekend.

The best watersports enthusiasts this country has to offer will be whizzing up and down Weston's waterfront on Saturday and Sunday.

The action will begin at 10am and 10.45am respectively.

* Dogs of all shapes, sizes and breeds will be on show in Weston this weekend.

The town's Rotarians have organised its annual dog show to be held on the seafront once again in 2019.

A series of categories and shows will take place, with the best pooches on show set to win prizes.

The event is always a popular one with visitors and will again do some good for the community - money raised will be donated to Holly Hedge Animal Sanctuary, in Barrow Gurney.

The show will be held on Saturday on the Beach Lawns, 
in Marine Parade, from 10.30am-4pm.

* A bric-a-brac sale will be held in Weston on Saturday.

The sea cadets' fundraiser will be held at its headquarters, in Sunnyside Road, from 10.30am-1pm.

Free parking will be available, however entry will cost 20p.

* A charity quiz night is planned for Sunday evening.

Rosie-May Edwards, who lives on the Bournville estate, requires financial help to fund an operation to help her walk, and the quiz will support her family's efforts.

It will take place at 6.30pm at Ella's Disco Bar, in Beach Road.
