A model railway show will be held in Weston this Sunday – an event which is set to catapult the show through the £40,000 charity fundraising barrier. The 13th Weston Model Railway Show will be stage at The Campus in Highlands Lane on Sunday, and is scheduled to run from 10am-4.30pm. A host of expert railway layouts, many of which have never been seen in the South West before, will be on show to enthusiasts who travel from far afield to attend.
Two charities have joined forces to help protect Somerset’s historic churches from thieves who target the lead on their roofs. Crooks who help themselves to metal from churches not only do significant damage to important historic buildings, but also cost hard-pressed congregations thousands of pounds to repair. St Andrew’s Church in Congresbury saw lead stripped from its roof by thieves in both 2011 and 2012, while St Andrew’s Church in Burnham was targeted too in 2012.

@NorthSomersetC@mrpeterbyrom@RobinWhitlock66 Thanks for letting me know. Any word on whether services will revert to normal now? We'd next be due a scheduled collection on Thursday, and have a significant backlog of stuff we couldn't put out this time due to lack of space caused by the delays.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
