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.

A message from Richard Young:

A reminder that our next working group will be at the Sunhill Community Centre in Princes Road on Monday 21st May at 10am - meeting at the pedestrian entrance on Sunnyside Road.

The plan is to uncover and clear the gullies running either side of the path to improve drainage, and cut back overhanging shrubs. Equipment needed is brooms, brushes, spades, trowels, shears. We can 'lose' the green waste on site.

The community centre will provide coffee at the end. As always, please wear stout footwear and protective gloves.
