All members of the Civic Society are welcome to attend our Group Meetings. Please contact the group chairmen for the location of the meeting places.
Should any member have a point to put forward it is always possible to contact an Executive Committee member to have it brought up at a meeting.
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

The next working party is confirmed as taking place on Monday 20th August, 10am-11.30am, at Marine Hill drinking fountain.
We plan to paint the railings and, if time, clear out the gullies and clean the fountain and surrounding pavement. I'll bring the Hammerite paint, paint brushes and 'wet paint' signs. Nick is bringing some boards to catch the drips.
Tools needed: wire brushes to prepare the railings (I have one), and the usual brooms/brushes/spades/trowels. As always, please wear stout footwear and protective gloves.
August Working Party - Marine Hill
Hill Road Shops
Jane’s talk is one that Derek Lilly gave in 2005 illustrated with his slides dating from the 1990s, with some images showing the original shops during part of their early life and then the shop as they were in the 1990s.
All the shops are in Hill Road and Jane has added some new information about some of them.
Jane says, ‘It's good fun to see that what the so-called present day images show has changed again!’
