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 over 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
As part of the Society 50th Anniversary celebrations next year, we are producing a Calendar, including the illustrations of the Town by local artist Mike Horsefield. The cover of the calendar is illustrated to the right.
As well as the calendar, some packs of notelets including the same illustrations as the calendar will also be produced.
Final prices and availability will be notified in due course.

Clevedon Light Opera Club
Speaker: Geoff Hale
Geoff's BBC experience is evident and this excellent raconteur is well known in Clevedon and beyond. His memories of the Light Opera Club should provide splendid entertainment.
Sharpness Canal - 30 May
For a walk a little further afield than our usual fare, 5 hardy members braved inclement weather for a walk up and around the Sharpness Canal. Highlights included the docks at Sharpness and the canal path walk past the old Severn rail bridge and the Purton ships’ graveyard.
