The Bleadon Belles in Concert with the Worle Wind Band

The Bleadon Belles had a fantastic night on Saturday 21st May.  They were the guests of the amazing Worle Wind Band at their Concert at Christ Church, Weston-super-Mare.  The choir sang a selection of old and new songs, directed by Choirmaster Andy King and accompanied by Richard Lennox.  As a finale they joined the band with a beautiful version of Paul Mealor’s 'Wherever You Are', together with soprano Bev King, and a medley of Andrew Lloyd Webber songs which raised the roof and received a standing ovation! 

Special thanks to Bleadon Village Market volunteers Rachel and Sheena, who together with Sandie from the Bleadon Players, did a fantastic job serving tea, coffee and cake in the interval.  

All profits from the concert will be going to the WI’s charity this year: the Diamond Jubilee Scanner Appeal for Weston Hospital.  A big thank you to those members who donated cake.

Samaritans Urgently Need More Volunteers!

We have been contacted by the Samaritans who are looking for volunteers in Weston Super Mare;

'The Samaritan vision is for a society in which fewer people die by suicide, people are able to explore their feelings and are able to acknowledge and respect the feelings of others. Callers do not have to be suicidal to call Samaritans; indeed they aim to talk to people in distress to help them to make positives choices for themselves.' 

There are two information events for anyone interested in becoming a listening or support volunteer on Wednesday 25th May at 7pm and Saturday 4th June at 10am at the Samaritan Centre, 137a High Street, Weston Super Mare, BS23 1HN.

To confirm you are going to attend or for further details please call 01934 621240 and leave a message or email samaritansrecruitmentwsm@yahoo.com
