What’s on this weekend?
PUBLISHED: 04:00 16 June 2012
THE British sunshine appears to be coming in liquid form this year but hopefully it will steer clear as some fantastic events are planned for the weekend involving the Olympics and sandcastles.
* Uphill – A Fairtrade coffee morning and market will take place at the Victory Hall in Old Church Road from 10am to noon. Stalls will sell crafts, preserves, photos and gifts.
* Weston – The Aerobics Gymnastics Club will hold a tabletop sale at the Potteries in Bridge Road. Hot drinks and cakes will be on offer from 10am.
* Claverham – It is market time and the village hall in Bishops Road will be open from 10am to noon.
* Weston - The Beacon homeless charity will hold a fundraising jumble sale at the Emmanuel Church Hall in Oxford Street from 10.30am-2pm.
* Berrow – The Millennium Field, off Red Road, will host the village fair today from 11am-4.30pm. A birds of prey display, food stalls, Zumba performance and much much more will be open to the public.
* Worle – Castle Batch Primary School will hold a family fair in Rawlins Avenue today. The event, from 11am-2pm will have all sorts on to keep you entertained.
* Banwell – It should be a cracking afternoon at the football club in Riverside as it holds a fire day. To celebrate 125 years of its local station, fire equipment and displays will be held from noon to 5.30pm.
* Winscombe – The primary school, in Moorham Road, will hold an Olympic-themed summer fete from 12.30-4pm. Entry costs 50p.
* Weston – A sandcastle competition on Weston beach means it is almost certain to rain today. Hopefully it will stay dry as the Royal Institute of British Architects hold the event from 1-4pm. The themes, unsurprisingly, are the Diamond Jubilee and the Olympics.
* Axbridge – St John’s Church, in St Mary’s Street, will hold a fete today at 2pm and it will be opened by royalty. Residents dressed as King Eadmund and Queen Aelfgifu will do the honours before the stalls open and the games begin.
* Milton – A Songs of Praise service will be held at St Peter’s Church in Baytree Road. It starts at 3pm and a collection for UNICEF’s East Africa Appeal will be held.
* Hutton – Fun, crafts and songs are promised at a family session held at the primary school today. The Church Lane venue will be open from 4-6pm and the event has been organised by St Mary’s Church.
* Weston – The local branch of the Society for the Protection fo Unborn Children will be holding its annual wine tasting and a quiz night. Starting at 7.30pm, the event will be held at Our Lady of Lourdes Church Hall in Baytree Road. Entry is £6 on the door.
* Weston - The sea cadet headquarters off Sunnyside Road North will hold a bingo night at 7.30pm. A raffle and refreshments will also be on offer.
* Redhill – Quizzers should head to the Church Lane village hall tonight at 8pm. Tickets, priced £1, can be bought on the door and a supper is available.
* Brent Knoll – If vintage cars take your fancy then pop down to Sanders Garden World tomorrow. The free event will run from 10am-3pm.
* Cheddar – Don’t forget it is Father’s Day tomorrow (so make sure you have a card). The Kings of Wessex School, in Station Road, are holding a special day to celebrate the event starting at 10am. Bouncy castles (presumably for the kids), a climbing wall, stalls and a barbecue will be on offer.
Sadly the Cleeve Olympics event advertised in this week’s Mercury for Saturday, has been postponed because of the indifferent weather. Organisers hope to schedule it for July.
