In a unanimous vote Nailsea Town Council supported by Backwell Parish Council and Backwell Residents Association decided it will fight the planning application to build 400 new homes twixt the two communities.

If allowed this would breach the sacrosanct strategic gap, there to maintain the separate identities of Nailsea and Backwell. Read more on our property page HERE  which has many new articles including 5-bed homes released at Netherton Grange and more open space up for auction

computer techies for the online community

The TEK Hut was started by Ben Parker in the summer of 2018.

For 12 years Ben had been one of the team at The ICT Workshop which provided a wide variety of computer services to Nailsea, Clevedon, Yatton, Backwell and even Weston-Super-Mare. 

Ben felt it right to continue the same great service customers had previously experienced but under new branding for a new business and The Tek Hut was born.

​Trading at the familiar location in Nailsea, The Tek Hut will continue to offer the same cost effective, new laptops and PCs, upgrades, onsite support for homes and businesses through to a wide range of workshop services and accessories.

News in Brief.jpg


Posted on Backwell social media site and shared with Nailsea People - there are reports of other incidents nearby from different women.

“This evening, Thursday, July 27, at about 8.30pm a man sitting on one of the benches at Backwell Lake exposed himself to me. I'm a single female and there was no-one else about. This has been reported to the police, but I think others should be aware. The man was, at a guess, late 20s, possibly early 30s. He had a black push bike propped up against the bench. He wore shorts of a light colour. I think his hair was mid brown. The trouble is, my head was all over the place and I didn't take enough note, I just wanted to get away without looking shocked because I didn't want him to follow me. There was no-one around at the time.”


Bristol Airport is preparing for the busiest ever summer holiday getaway with more than 1.5 million passengers planning to travel through the Airport during the school holiday period.
August bank holiday is expected to be the busiest period during the summer with up to 37,000 customers flying on some days. People are warned to check roadworks on route to airport to avoid being late for take-off.


We would like to say eat your heart out Clevedon as the Eat:Festival switches for October to Nailsea.

The award-winning food and drink Eat:Festival is returning to Nailsea this October after almost a year’s absence.

Nailsea's biggest and best street fest will be setting up open air stalls throughout the town centre on Saturday, October 28, 10am-4pm.

It was booked for Clevedon which had big plans, but a last-minute change of venue has thankfully benefitted Nailsea.

Nailsea had hosted many Eat:Festivals since 2019 but they ended abruptly in December 2022 after issues with space, road closures and 'red tape'.

With many Eat:Festivals all over the West Country Nailsea people were miffed to lose out especially to other communities in North Somerset.

In 2023 there were 28 festivals planned in 19 host towns and cities

Clevedon, Portishead and Weston had all secured at least one date.

However, described as 'unavoidable circumstances' Eat:Nailsea is back and Clevedon in October is cancelled.

Bev and Sarah are thrilled to be back in Nailsea.

Bev said: "This will be our biggest Eat:Nailsea yet with Crown Glass Shopping Centre full of stalls from Wetherspoons to Waitrose and the usual section of the High Street too."

Clevedon BID had teamed up with Eat Festivals for a fourth time to bring ‘a fiesta of food and fun in support of small businesses’ to the town.

It had planned to take over Alexandra Road and Queens Square to connect all areas of Clevedon and even laid on a vintage bus service.

Approximately 90 food and drink producers were expected to take part in the celebration of locally and regionally resourced products with the support of Clevedon BID and Thatchers Cider.

Hopefully now they will all switch to Nailsea

Nailsea Town Council had opened talks with Bev and Sarah Milner Simonds earlier in the year with a view to reinstate the popular day-long event.

Town clerk, Jo Duffy, said: “Councillors listened to the people and businesses of Nailsea who were disappointed after the cessation of the Nailsea festivals at the end of 2022.

"The festivals are obviously a positive for the town and so after working things through with the organisers, it has been confirmed Eat:Nailsea will return on October 28.”

Eat festivals are free to attend, family-friendly, accessible day-long events held in town centres throughout the West Country showcasing local producers alongside workshops, live music, street entertainment and competitions.

.A Clevedon Town Council spokesperson said it was an admin error that led to a double booking.
