Nailsea Town May Roundup and Event Review

May has been a very busy month for Nailsea with a lot of events and important moments happening in our town. The beginning of the month set the tone for the rest of May with a quite a few events and happenings such as the coronation fayre as well as an abundance of highlights throughout the month.

The Coronation Fayre

The Coronation Fayre was a huge success and was well supported by our Nailsea Community. We would like to thank everyone who attended for making it such a memorable day that brought us together as a community.

We’d also like to extend our thanks to everyone who helped make the community fayre and all the activities a success. Without our army of volunteers and various entertainment groups, the fayre wouldn’t have been nearly as exciting and engaging.

The Knitting Decorations went up at the end of April and adorned both the high street and town centre. They were a great addition to the festivities around the Coronation and we’d like once again express our appreciation to the knitting group for these lovely additions to Nailsea’s streets.

The Coronation itself also went well and whether you celebrated it with us or not, we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did

Annual Town Meeting

This years, Nailsea’s Annual Town Meeting took place at the Tithe Barn at 7pm on 10th May 2023.

This was a people’s meeting rather than a council meeting. We invited Nailsea residents to have their say on local issues and raise any concerns that they thought need to be addressed.

The meeting will also include a report from the 2022/2023 town council chair, Cllr Mike Bird sharing information about the council’s achievements over the past 12 months.

In addition to this, we had representatives from local organisations that have received grants from Nailsea Town Council explain how the grants have been used to benefit Nailsea and its residents.

The agenda for this annual meeting can be found under ‘other meetings’ on the ‘minutes and agendas’ page of our website.

Nailsea Little Theatre’s Platinum Jubilee

Our very own local theatre, Nailsea Little Theatre celebrated its platinum jubilee this month.

In order to celebrate 60 years of producing amazing entertainment for our community, the theatre had an open day on Saturday the 20th of May.

This was a great opportunity for people to take a look behind the scenes, chat to the volunteers who keep the theatre running and see where its three yearly shows – plus visiting performances – are put together.

Nailsea Little Theatre is currently preparing for the final show of its 2022/23 season, Amanda Whittington’s hilarious and poignant Ladies Down Under. Directed by Isobel Williams, the production will be on stage from Monday 5 to Saturday 10 June. Make sure you don’t miss out by securing your tickets to this must-see show today!

New Information board for Trendlewood Park

Visitors to Trendlewood Park will now be greeted with a brand new sign with up-to-date information and community news.

This is initiative was the result of efforts from various local stakeholder groups as it was a collaboration between he Friends of Trendlewood Park (FoTP) volunteer group, North Somerset Council and a number of community groups. While Nailsea Town Council provides FoTP with an annual grant for park upkeep and improvements, the notice board received funding from Nailsea and Backwell Rotary clubs and Waitrose.

A spokesman for FoTP said: “This is a great addition to the park, which is there for the enjoyment and relaxation of all, and to provide many semi- wild spaces for plants, birds and animals to flourish.  At this time of year, there is plenty of blossom, colourful meadows and abundant wildlife to enjoy.

We would in particular like to thank Ken Rock, Community Lead from Rotary Nailsea and Backwell, and Isobel Williams, Community Partner from Nailsea Waitrose for their personal interest and support.”
