Quilting enthusiasts raised £300 for the Children’s Hospice South West at an exhibition of their work in Congresbury on Saturday (Oct 27).
The event was staged by the 12 members of Congresbury Quilters in the Old School Rooms, where the group meets every Tuesday.
Pat Baker, who launched the group some three ago, said: “It was amazing. Our members put in lots of energy, enthusiasm, hard work and served some lovely cakes too.”
An exhibition is held every two years for the Children’s hospice.
“New members are welcome – they can pop in any Tuesday afternoon 1.30 – 4.00 pm,” said Pat.Quilting Exhibition

FREE taster session at Congresbury Youth Club between 4.30pm and 6pm on Monday 1st October.
Aimed for children aged between 8years – 12 years old.
Young people and parents can come and find out what it’s all about, and register to join us. Subsequent sessions will be scheduled every Monday of term time, at times from 3.30 until about 6.30, depending on demand. They will cost £1.50 per session, and initially equipment will be available to borrow. Keen new programmers may eventually need to buy themselves some equipment, perhaps a Raspberry Pi of their own to work on at home, but no need to do so immediately. Our tutors will advise you. What is a Raspberry Pi? It’s a tiny computer, cheap enough that young people can experiment with programming it themselves, and through our project can develop coding skills to produce simple games, control models and much more. We can also help you with the programming language Python, which you may need for your IT homework.
If you are a young person interested in joining this group, come along on Oct 1st, or contact email@example.com
Check out: https://www.codeclub.org.uk. Our club may not be exactly like this, but it gives you an idea.
If you are an adult with any time to help, please let us know. Skills are not essential. We need tea-makers as well as computer programmers, though a knowledge of both would be perfect, of course.

Situated a short distance from the A370 between Bristol and Weston-super-Mare, on the edge of the village of Congresbury, the site covers approximately three acres in a slightly hidden countryside setting.
The nursery has car parking and is within easy walking distance of a Bus Stop on the Bristol road.
Tropical temperatures did not deter villagers from flocking to St. Andrew’s church paddock, for Congresbury village fete and Flower show, which was better than ever this year, with attractions for all ages.
The upbeat sound of the Cadbury Saxophones encouraged slackers to the event, and the paddock was filled with stalls, manned by different village groups, coupled with a bouncy slide and ball pool, and a display by Avon Owls.
The Morgan car display of handmade luxury vehicles, and the vintage cars displayed by Debbie Fortune, the Audi shortly destined for Le Mans, drew appreciative crowds, mainly men.
Avon & Somerset Constabulary have reported that during the early hours of 6 June a window at a commercial property in Kent Road, Congresbury was broken and access gained inside. Alcohol and packs of chewing gum were stolen.

Avon & Somerset Police have set up a new support group and are looking for volunteers.
As a Volunteer in a Circle of Support and Accountability (‘Circle’), you’ll make an important contribution to preventing sexual abuse by helping reduce the risk of further sexual harm by a known perpetrator.
A Circle is a small group of carefully trained and selected Volunteers who meet regularly with an individual who has been convicted of sexual offences (or with harmful sexual behaviour). Volunteers hold the individual to account for their behaviour and support their safe reintegration into the community. They work closely with the responsible statutory organisations. Read more
Some of you may recognise my name – I have lived in Congresbury most of my life and my children attend St Andrews Primary School.
I am making contact with you to see if any of your organisations have any projects that would benefit from some volunteered help. My employers, Pelican Business Services, offer their employees time off to help with local community projects and I would love to be able to use this to give something back to the village and community. The number of volunteers, and who that would be, would be decided depending on what work is required.
Previous projects have included painting schools, weeding gardens, walking dogs or spending time with the elderly.
If you have anything in mind that you would like to use us for, then please let me know. Or if there’s nothing planned at the moment, please keep us in mind for any future projects and feel free to contact me. (email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org)

Providing impartial and independent advice for people seeking alcohol rehab.
At Rehab 4 Alcoholism we are well known in the United Kingdom for our hard work and dedication in defeating alcoholism. Just so you know our advice is 100% free and impartial. We are independent of the rehab industry and we intend to remain independent.
Our alcohol rehab services are available to people suffering from varying degrees of alcohol addiction. Invariably this includes treatment for so-called chronic alcoholism but also for sufferers exhibiting mild forms of alcoholism. Left unchecked alcoholism leads to serious health complications including brain damage and alcohol-related liver disease. Alcoholism left untreated inflicts lasting wounds on relationships including family life, professional life, and social life.

Congresbury Scouts love to be outdoors and do a lot of hiking and camping. Scouts grow very fast, and for some families, it’s a real struggle to keep them in suitable warm clothing and footwear for activities. Leaders have had a number of occasions when young people have not been able to enjoy their outdoor activities just because they have been too cold and wet. We have decided to address this by setting up a kit exchange within the group, so that outdoor gear can be passed down to those who don’t have enough of their own.
To get this ball rolling, we need to assemble a reasonable stock of various sizes that are available for exchange. We are looking for waterproof jackets, trousers, gloves and gaiters especially, and for walking boots in various sizes.
If anyone has that sort of stuff hanging around outgrown or unloved, we would love to hear from you.
