Let's spring into May 2021
SPRING FORWARD: May is named after the Greek goddess Maia who looked after plants. The month is known for love and success. It is not only the name of the month, but some parents give their girls May as a first or middle name especially if they are born in that month. In April and May, our ancient woodlands are awash with the much-loved, nodding heads of the Bluebell. Millions of bulbs can exist in just one wood, giving rise to the 'blue carpets' that are a springtime joy. Wrington and Portbury has the best bluebell woods in North Somerset but please don't pick the flowers, they just wilt and die...

All the fun of the fairground
May bank holiday weekend
FUN FAIR: While 2nd Nailsea Scouts annual May Fair had to be cancelled for a second year running - due to the coronavirus pandemic - the fairground arrived in town. The May fair - a popular event in the town’s calendar attended by thousands of people - is organised by the 2nd Nailsea Scouts and is usually its main fundraiser of the year. The event includes a fun fair at Millennium Park which runs for several days including the bank holiday. Rogers Family Fun Fair was open from Thursday to Monday, April 29-May 3; on weekdays 5-9pm, weekends 1-9pm and on the bank holiday 11am-6pm. Krystal Rogers was confident it would be a Covid-19 safe fair. Nailsea Town Council spokesman Mike Bird said prior to the event: "With the new lifting of restrictions on the 12th of April, there's nothing can be done legally to stop it. I'm told self policing rules have been agreed and the police say given sufficient manpower they will be walking through now and again. Neighbourhood sergeant Mark Raby said: "The last time the fun fair was in town it was empty but I hope parents advise their teenagers to be sensible." In the event the fair was a great success especially with the youth and families who had been socially isolating for such a long time.
