What's on this weekend?


At a loose end this weekend? Why not see if any of these take your fancy:


* UPHILL – Anyone looking for a bargain may want to check out this morning’s jumble sale. Admission is 20p – which will go to children’s charities – and starts at 10.30am at the village hall in Old Church Road.

* BOURNVILLE – A Children in Need fundraiser is being held this afternoon involving music, games and train rides. The fun starts at noon today at Weston St John’s football club off Coleridge Road.

* CHEDDAR – The annual Lions firework extravaganza is sure to go off with a bang tonight on the rugby field in Sharpham Road. Tickets cost £3 from Deanes in Bath Street.

* YATTON – The summer may have past (without being seen) and the trees shedding their leaves but autumn need not be a dull horticultural month. This afternoon a flower show is being held from 2pm at the village hall in The Causeway.

* WESTON – Nine victories. That is all that separates Weston FC from a famous, and largely unexpected FA Cup victory and a place in the Europa League. Chances are that will not happen but today they take on Oxford City for the right to enter the First Round for the first time in nearly a decade. Kick-off is 3pm to see whether Weston can get into the draw with big name clubs such as Sheffield Wednesday, Charlton Athletic and Huddersfield Town.

* CONGRESBURY – The proms comes to North Somerset tonight to raise money for the Poppy Appeal. It starts at 7.30pm at St Andrew’s Church in Station Road and tickets are priced £10.

* WESTON – Two fat ladies will be making an appearance at a fun bingo night hosted by the sea cadets tonight. It all starts at 7.30pm at their HQ off Sunnyside Road North and a book costs £1. Refreshments will be available.


* WESTON – The town’s Poppy Appeal efforts will be officially launched tomorrow at Princess Royal Square. There will be a balloon launch, motorbikes display and a band from 10.45am ahead of the legion band’s march at 11.15am.

* BANWELL – Half term may well be coming to an end but there is one last treat tomorrow that can keep the kids entertained. A treasure hunt starts in the car park of West Street at 2pm. It costs £2.50 per person and does include a hearty spud supper. Tickets are available from the village post office.
