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.

Bob Hardcastle, Chairman of Clevedon Civic Society’s Environment Group, retired from this post at the annual meeting on January 11th and on behalf of the members he received a thankyou presentation from the Society Chairman James Foulds.

James Foulds paid tribute to Bob’s dedication to the Society over the past 40 years which saw him as Society Chairman, vice Chairman, a member of the Conservation and Planning Group and Chairman of the Environment Group twice.

Amongst other projects he has been involved in the restoration of the drinking fountains in Clevedon: the new seating areas in Pier Copse: the Lookout on Church Hill: the round seating area on Poets Walk and the reconstruction of the Marine Lake.

Bob has also spearheaded the setting up of the regular Environment Group working parties to maintain the Civic Society’s projects in the town which in turn support the Society’s aim of caring for Clevedon.

“Caring for Clevedon has always been my aim and I am very grateful to all those fellow members who helped and supported me with all these projects,” said Bob who received a stunning stainless steel bowl for fruit.
