Cheddar Vale Lions Club was founded in 1972 and serves the communities of Wedmore, Cheddar, Winscombe, Axbridge, Draycott and the rest of the Cheddar Valley.
We support local voluntary organisations, through fund raising, actively support all those less fortunate than ourselves through community service projects, support youth projects and have social events.
We meet on 2nd Thursday of each month at 7.30pm at Winscombe Social Club, Sandford Road, Winscombe.
Harvest Homes started when farmers put on a meal with cider to thank the workers for bringing in the harvest. Wedmore’s event has now evolved into a full day of events, starting with a Church Service, followed by the Harvest Home procession, lead by the Harvest Home King, Queen and Princess, with local organisations and families having colourful trailers drawn through the village by tractors.
There is a lunch for ladies and gentleman over the age of 16, in the marquee on the playing fields ground, followed by children’s sports events and then a tea.
The evening sees an evening of entertainment, often with a tribute band playing to a packed marquee. Wedmore’s HH traditionally takes place on the third Friday in August
Blackford Harvest Homet committee is holding its annual Winter Warmer event at the village hall tomorrow.
Everyone is welcome to enjoy home-cooked casseroles, puddings and a range of drinks from the licensed bar.
As well as good food there will be a quiz and a raffle.
Tickets are £10 available from Mike and Maureen Isgar on 01934 712087.
It’s also important that we carry on the tradition of Theale Flower Show. The Show has always been and remains an important event in the village but it only gets staged with a lot of enjoyable effort from villagers and other friends.
Afternoon and evening entertainment for the whole family starting with lunch from 12:30 (tel. 01934 712809 to book)
The Show tent opens at 2 pm and in the arena will be numerous attractions and displays, jazz band, country dancing, kick boxing, vintage vehicles, trailer rides, children’s sports, skittles, bouncy castle, cream teas and in the evening a bar-b-q, fancy dress pram / barrow race, music by local artists with a licensed bar throughout.

We are a club, run by volunteers, for the senior citizens of Wedmore and district.
The club is now held at the Wedmore Village Hall, every Tuesday from 10:30 to 2:30.
We provide coffee and biscuits on arrival, a freshly cooked 2 course lunch (usually a roast), and afternoon tea and cake.
We have speakers, sing-a-longs and occasionally outings, but are mainly a social group, especially for those on their own.
