Introducing Kate the new Halls Booking Officer

Posted on 11th October, 2017


My name is Kate James, I am married to Tony, have 3 children and I have lived in Bleadon for about 15 years, firstly on Shiplate Road and then after about six years we moved to another house closer to the village. 
We love living in this village and I have been involved in organising a few village events such as the Royal Wedding Party and the Queen’s Golden Jubilee Party. I was also the first president of Bleadon WI, a post which I held for two years (I am still an active member) and was on the committee for the Youth Club for a while.
Alongside my new role as Bookings Officer I also work part-time at Uphill Primary School where I have been for 15 years.
Jo has done an amazing job over the last 35 years and I hope I can continue to do as good a job as she has.

After all the hard work of the past few months I am delighted to invite you to the Grand Opening of the Brean Down Way on Friday 7 July.


The formal bit will be at 11.45 for noon, at the sluices across the River Axe. We hope that you will also be able to join us in walking or riding the section of the route that Greenways and Cycleroutes has just completed after the opening. 


We are planning a day of festivities, starting with a walk or ride through the North Somerset section, and going on to the tip of Brean Down, via a barbecue at the National Trust Café, and, weather permitting, games on the beach. You are of course welcome to join those too. The invitation attached has all the details.


Feel free to share this invitation with others who may be interested. We are immensely proud of what we have achieved, and would like to see as many people as possible there for the opening.


Please be warned that the route may not be open if you try to cycle it before 7 July. The Environment Agency have asked us to wait for them to build their fences before allowing public access.

Village Picnic - 8 July 2017

Posted on 31st May, 2017

A date for your diary.


The Friends of Bleadon Church are planning a Village Picnic from 7.00pm on Saturday July 8th.

IT WILL OF COURSE be a lovely, warm summer evening and so we will have a decorated  marquee and gazebos in the car park.

Your picnic box food will be available from the Coronation Hall, tea and coffee will be provided and there will be a bar.

While you are enjoying your food there will be a choir to sing you Madrigals and English Folk songs and a group of dancers in full costume will perform C18th country dances for your entertainment. This group hope you will join them for a while in practical participation.

The music will then advance to a more C21st style which will give you a chance to dance in your own style.

Tickets will cost £10 per person £5 for children under 12 and will shortly be available from Mary Hollis on 811165 or Gill Williams on 813255.

Do bring the family, the playground is always open for the children.
