Wells Road Closure – Bus services interrupted

Due to road works along the Wells road there will be no public transport between Wells and Theale and Wedmore during the period 29th July until the 2nd September Monday to Friday though the service between Burnham and Wedmore will operate to its normal timetable.
The Mendip Community Transport section of the route will be additionally affected, with the decision being taken to only operate the route between Wookey village and Wookey Hole, via Wells with no changes to times on this section of route .  
There may be a possibility   to arrange a specific journey for anyone unable to gain access to the service in this area by contacting Mendip Community transport.    

Wedmore users are able to access Service 668 (Libra Travel) into Street, for onward connections to Wells.

The details relating to the Saturday Service remains uncertain.  

Theale Flower Show – 7th September

Theale Flower Show

Saturday 7th September opening at 2pm

We’re looking forward to our annual Flower Show,  based around Theale Village Hall & Christ Church Theale.  The Show will be opened at 2pm and activities will continue through the afternoon until 5:30pm,  after which we’ll have our usual “wind-down” informal BBQ for a couple of hours from 6:30pm

The Flower Show, which celebrated its 75th Show last year, is based around a competitive show with exhibits from entrants which cover a wide range of classes displaying children’s entries, home grown fruit, vegetables, flowers, food & drink.  You can enter your own exhibit.  The easiest way is to do it online from 1st August at www.thealeflowershow.com.  Or find a free schedule of classes and entry form at any local Wedmore shop or pub – easily spotted with an Orange cover!.  Then (if you’re not entering online) come along to The Panborough Inn between 7pm to 9pm on either Wednesday 4th September or Thursday 5th September with your completed Entry Form.  Note your entry for the competition either online or in person must be made on or before 9pm on Thursday 5th September to be eligible.

We’ll also have:

  • A Companion Dog Show (thanks to support from Westfield Vets)
  • Flower Arranging demonstration
  • Children’s games
  • Face Painting
  • Pottery demonstration by local potter Jan Tomes
  • Fully licensed bar
  • Really tasty teas & cakes
  • Grand Draw tickets & Draw (your chance to win £100 cash!)
  • Exhibition of Classic vehicles
  • An evening of local musicians from 6:30 to 8pm

We always have a lovely afternoon and evening.  Entry is just £2 per person with children under 16 FREE.

And if you’re available to help set up the Flower Show on 6th & 7th September,  don’t hesitate to call Phil Butterworth on 712775 and offer your help!

Springtime Green Man – a lovely evening!

Many thanks to all of you who came along to the Theale “Green Man” on Saturday 11th May.  A delightful evening in Dave & Ann Bodley’s Orchard & the Village Hall was made even better for raising £50 towards the Moonwalk Breast Cancer event.

Many thanks to Bill & Cathy Woodroffe, Shaun Thorogood and many others who made this event such a success!
