Clevedon is a seaside resort on the Bristol Channel with easy access from the M5 at Junction 20.

Our attractive town, which has a population of about 21,000, is a vibrant mix of the old and the new, with a good selection of shops for all tastes and a wide assortment of excellent restaurants to relish.

Fantastic views are to be had across the water to South Wales along with interesting walks and one of the most famous sunsets in the country.

This all goes to making Clevedon a special place to enjoy, so  

welcome to our town.

Lionel Palairet.

Environment Group member, Richard Young, writes:

We agreed at our last meeting that the first working party of the year should be in March, and would tackle the rubbish / plastic on the foreshore adjoining Marshall's Field.

I've checked the tide tables, and the best Monday looks to be that which falls on 12th March. So please put that date in your diary (or let me know if you can't make it).

I'll contact John Flanagan and arrange for a trailer to take away what we gather in.

Bring on the Elephants and

other Tall Theatrical Tales

Peter Longman

100 years ago putting up a theatre was a good way of making money. The arrival of the cinema and TV changed all that and most of the old buildings were lost. This talk explores the resulting consequences and reveals some of the 'sleeping beauties' that are waiting to be revived.
