Weston, Worle & Somerset Mercury
The Weston, Worle & Somerset Mercury has been serving the town of Weston-super-Mare since 1843, and remains at the heart of the community.The paper is published every Thursday, and is accompanied monthly by its new Weston & Worle Resident lifestyle magazine, while up-to-the-minute news from around North Somerset can be found online.
Weston Town Council
Weston Town Council was established in 2000 as the only democratically elected body which exclusively represents the town and is entirely independent of North Somerset Council. In legal terms it is the ‘parish’ council for the town with 31 councillors, who take no allowances and are elected every four years. The services the Town Council provides include play areas, bus shelters, the Milton Road Cemetery, the Blakehay Theatre, and Weston Museum. The Town Council also commissions youth services including the Youth Cafe from the YMCA and operates six sets of allotments through the Allotment Club.

Having worked for the BBC and the regional press, Caroline can tailor engaging content for features, press releases, case studies, blogs, newsletters, social media and websites, as well as deliver national PR campaigns that hit the spot. Caroline said: “We’re really excited about working with the Weston Super Food Festival to promote this year’s event. An established, ‘must-see’ event on the town’s calendar, it’s a fantastic story to tell and puts local producers well and truly on the foodie map.

Big Worle is a Big Lottery funded project which aims to improve the Big Worle area. Big Worle is about investing money, skills, training and time to benefit people who live work and volunteer in the area. At the Food Festival, we will be promoting the groups we run over at our Hub on Clovelly Road, as well as promoting the work we have been doing around wildlife projects in the area, and our Incredible Edible Big Worle project which aims to improve the local environment and access to local, home-grown food. Our apple press will be up and running over the weekend, so people can come and press their own delicious apple juice for donations, and we will be running activities for children around growing their own food. www.bigworle.org.uk
