Community Gardening in the Churchyard Update

Posted on 17th August, 2019


An update from Rev Tim Erridge:


"In June, July and August it has been a joy to welcome new helpers at our "Churchyard working group" mornings. It is good to get to know local people whilst working together. If you have not yet joined in and want to, please do. If you need more info, please contact Tim on revtimerridge@gmail.com or 01934 815 404.


We have planted up previously overgrown grave plots and the splash of colour makes so much difference. Thank you to Bleadon in Bloom for providing plants.


We are pleased to see that an ornamental prunus which was mistakenly cut back very hard is now shooting strongly from the base and may even be better off long term of the mistake!


We are planning to be working together on 14th Sept, 5th Oct and 2nd Nov (All Saturdays from 10am to 12noon) Do come along and join in. Bring gloves and secateurs if you have them, but if not just bring yourself.


There are also still plots available for adoption. This means planting / tidying a specific plot at a time to suit you. Please ask if you would like to adopt.


Thank you for all your help so far and we look forward to working together again soon."

Bentley Effect Film at Axbridge Cinema

Posted on 9th July, 2019



The Bentley Effect, by Brendan Shoebridge showing at the Roxy Cinema, 36 High Street, Axbridge, BS26 2AF on Monday 15 July 2019 at 7:30pm. Entrance £3.


The fight against fracking needed a hero. Over 10,000 people put their hands up.


This film has been quoted as "Hopeful and tearful, funny and poignant", "Grassroots community activism at its best".


"Exploration feelers have been put out in Bleadon, there are PEDL licences all down the coast, now is the time to show that there is no social licence for fracking and unconventional oil and gas exploration in our area.

If you missed this film last time around make sure you catch it this time. A great chance to watch this inspirational film of peaceful protest, at a time when we need to be inspired. Come and bring your friends.

We need that people power now.


We look forward to seeing you in Axbridge's iconic cinema."

Soroptimists Railing Against Abuse

Posted on 21st November, 2018


Local women raise awareness of domestic abuse


There are many United Nations special days each year but the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women is this Sunday 25 November 2018, the theme is ORANGE. 


On this day, for the past three years, supported by Tara Newley Arkle and Soroptimists of the South West Region, the women of SI Weston have drawn attention to domestic abuse. They wear an item of orange and hand out Loves me, Loves me not bookmarks. These bookmarks include a checklist to help people understand that they do not have to tolerate persistent abuse or controlling behaviour in a relationship. They are already in use by many North Somerset schools.


Last year they were joined at the Lord Mayor’s chapel in Bristol by Dame Joan Collins, who spoke movingly about her own experiences. This year their Weston-super-Mare event will support Gemini services, an organisation responsible for the women’s refuge and other assistance for domestic abuse survivors in and around the town.


This year participants will be attaching 104 orange bows to the railings around the fountain at Grove Park to represent the number of women in the UK killed by men known to them i.e. approx. two a week. 


The general timetable for the two sets of participants converging at Grove Park is:


10:45am-11:30amMeet at WSM Station
11:30am - 12:15pmWalk through Weston along the High Street distributing bookmarks
11:30am - 12:30pmAttaching orange bows to the railings around the fountain at Grove Park
12:30pm - 12:45pmThe Mayor and other invited guests tie a orange ribbon
12:45pm - 1:00pmRose Garden Commemoration
1:00pm - 1:30pmThe Mayor unveils the bust “Enigmatic Smile” by Anne Woolley donated by Soroptimists of Weston-super-Mare
