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.

Message from Richard Young, Group member:

We had a wonderful turn out at the Environment Group's litter-pick of the foreshore at Marshall's Field today. Five core members of the group were joined by ten others, which enabled us to gather thirty black bags of rubbish, several tyres, the side of a boat, and various other wonders. The attached photograph shows the results.

During the 90 minute session, several members of the public stopped to express their appreciation, and various dogs ran around offering their services (not entirely helpfully).

Thanks to Gareth Withers from North Somerset Council for providing black bags and arranging removal of our haul, and to Angela for taking the photographs.
