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.

A message from the group chairman, Bob Hardcastle:

Just to thank all those who turned out in force to help with the clearing of The Donkey Path on the 13th November.

A record number of ten I think. Just as well as the Path seems to get longer each year!

The Path is now leaf and litter free – with bushes etc. cut back to provide clear access.

Thanks again – regards Bob

PS And just a reminder of the next Environment Group meeting at my house on Wednesday 22 November at 7.30.

Post Christmas Burn-off Round Clevedon

Meet - CLEVEDON BANDSTAND (please note not usual meeting place)

Time –10.00am

Please join us for an easy 1.5hr walk in Clevedon, directly from the bandstand, to blow the Christmas cobwebs away!

After which you will be rewarded with mince pies and mulled cider. If you wish to have your preferred hot drinks please bring flasks as normal.

Weather permitting there will be an option to extend the walk after refreshments. This section could be as long as you want it to be, leaving at either a convenient spot or when you’ve had enough. Just let walk leader know ⛄️. There will be no planned pub meal at the end of this walk but perhaps an option, if we’re blessed with a glorious day, of taking a packed lunch for a picnic?

Family and friends welcome (please make sure they are aware that they are responsible for their own safety, that it is not an ‘organised’ walk in the sense of health and safety insurance etc).

If you are likely to swell our usual expected numbers in this way it would be good to know beforehand for catering purposes - that would be a great help.

Please drop Philip an email, philhumphries@live.co.uk
