Fuelling the Future

You are invited to a free showing of the film

The End of Suburbia — A Wake-up-Call for all Humanity

  • about the impact on our lives of oil becoming much more costly
  • The enormous rise in wealth (and of human population) in the last century has been possible only through cheap oil
  • Oil makes fertilisers, chemicals, medicines, and all plastics
  • Cheap oil drives our whole economy and transport systems
  • Supplies are now peaking – we are possibly within 4 years of severe shortages
  • Extraction will become more difficult, while demand continues to rise relentlessly, exceeding supply
  • Realistic alternatives to replace oil are unlikely within 20 years
  • What should we do – ignore it or take steps now to respond?

Learn more about the implications of Peak Oil – for ourselves, our families, our communities and our nation

Wellow Village Hall

Wednesday 22nd February, 7.30pm

There will be an opportunity afterwards to discuss the issues

We have just moved into Wellow Farm, The Square, Wellow and would be grateful for help in the following areas:

Putting Runner Ducks to Bed

To put our ducks to bed on those odd occasions when we do not get back before dark. This involves giving them some corn and shutting the shed door, as they are well behaved. This could suit somebody still at school who lives nearby. Rates to be agreed.

Help with Typing / Sara Bee Fabrics

Sara needs help with typing up invoices to a simple format. Sara will write out the invoice and hand it or fax it, ideally to somebody who lives nearby. The time requirement is not great. Rates to be agreed.

Please contact Tim or Sara Wilson on 01225 8834929

Housesitter in Wellow

Do you need a housesitter and someone to feed and care for your pets while you are away on holiday? My recently retired parents live a long way off in South Africa and miss seeing their children and grandchildren. They visit us a couple of times a year but it is now a bit of a tight squeeze in our small cottage. So if you live in the village and need a couple of good reliable housesitters they may be able to help out in return for the proximity that it would provide to their family here in Canteen Cottage.

Their next visit will be in December. If you might be interested in a housesitting arrangement at this or any other time please contact me, Di Dalgliesh, at my email address ( or by telephone (01225 833765)."


Wellow Amateur Dramatic Society

We woluld like to form a choir this year for the St. Julian's Church Christmas Carol Service which usuallly takes place the Sunday before Christmas. We find it difficult to do this within our group so are sending out this appeal for anyone wiilling to join us. We just need enthusiasm and committment to at least six rehearsals at the Church prior to the event. Rehearsals are alwys most enjoyable. Pauline Preddy's encouragemant to hit a few high notes and try something a little different always pays off in the end.

Please Contact Pauline on 01225 832625 or Mary on 01225 837732 by October 27th if you would like to join us.

Major Church Event for June

Flower Festival at St Julian's Church, Wellow and Commissioning of New Group Ministry.

Friday 15th to Sunday 17th June 2001.

The parishioners of Wellow, near Bath, are preparing for a major event in their Church life.

The ladies of the Farmborough Floral Art Group have chosen Wellow to be the venue for their magnificent displays this year. The theme of the Flower Festival is "Wellow through the Ages" portraying many aspects of village life over the centuries. Wellow is rich in history from Roman times to the present day, and the displays promise to be both beautiful and informative.

The beauty and diversity of the flowers will be enhanced by performances of music. There will be a Jazz Evening on Friday 15th June featuring the local group of musicians entitled "Mellow Wellow". Various organists will be playing throughout the day on Saturday. On Saturday evening the "Freshford Gallery Minstrels" will be playing Victorian instruments, which will include musical accompaniment to the literary work of Thomas Hardy.

Sunday 17th June will be a significant day in the life of St Julian's. Bishop Jim Thompson will preach at the Morning Service at 11.15am. The Wells Cathedral Voluntary Choir will lead the singing and perform their own pieces in the service.

In the afternoon, several gardens in the village will be open, where teas will be served and plants will be for sale. Refreshments will be served in Church throughout the Festival.

Deanery Evensong at 6.00pm will be the occasion when the Archdeacon of Bath will preach and commission the New Group Ministry of seven parishes. The existing Group Ministry of the benefice of Peasedown St John with Wellow and the benefice of Camerton with Dunkerton, Foxcote and Shoscombe will be extended to include the benefice of Timsbury and Priston.

The old heating system at St Julian's Church has been condemned, which has meant that parishioners have also been condemned to three winters of cold and shivering! The Flower Festival marks the launch of a Heating Appeal for £20,000.

If you would like to have more information about the Festival, or would like to book tickets for the concerts (both start at 7.30pm), please contact Jenny Nixon on 01225 837024.

Despite the Planning Officers for B&NES trying desperately to recommend that our Village Shop banner be refused planning permission the Local Councillors on the development control sub-committee rallied to our aid and APPROVED the sign. We are particularly grateful to Gitte Dawson, our Local Councillor, for her vigorous support in supporting our application. It is only a shame that the Planning Officers are not so committed to the enforcment of planning infringements by Mr. Rothschild at the Signal Box, Wellow!!!

Thank you (03/0/2/2001)

We would like to express our personal thanks to all who have sent cards and messages of support following our recent time in hospital. Shirley now has a working kidney that has been donated by Chris.
