Tractor trundle for charity
TRACTORS GALORE: On Boxing Day a convoy of farm vehicles decked out in Christmas finery trundled along the roads of North Somerset and beyond on a massive charity fundraiser. The one that included Nailsea and Backwell on its route was organised by George Atwell, of CHJ Atwell & Sons at Grove Farm, Claverham. He raised more than £ 5,000 for The Farming Community Network. Others collected for the British Heart Foundation. A bystander said: "I hope everyone had a great day and all those who were in the vintage tractors hope you have now defrosted and warmed up."

NAILSEA SKIES: The concept of 'Red sky at night, shepherd's delight. Red sky in the morning, shepherd's warning' first appears in the Bible in the book of Matthew. It is an old weather saying often used at sunrise and sunset to signify the changing sky and was originally known to help the shepherds prepare for the next day's weather. tThank you to everyone for your contributions
