Romance is in the air this week and there are several things to do this weekend which you will love.
From watching the sky turn a beautiful colour to dancing the night away, there is plenty to do this week.
* A zumbathon for a very worth cause will be held on the Bournville on Saturday afternoon.
The fundraiser will raise money for Bristol boy Emil Jazurek who is 16 months old.
His parents need to collect £20,000 to take him for specialist treatment because acute flaccid myelitis has left him paralysed from the neck down.
The event will be held at the primary school, in Selworthy Road, from 1-2.30pm.
* Saturday night will go with a bang, thanks to the Grand Pier.
It is holding a fireworks event on Weston seafront at 6.30pm.
