All members of the Civic Society are welcome to attend our Group Meetings. Please contact the group chair for the location of the meeting places.

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.

Aust and Northwick - 3 April

Eight of us met at Strode Road Car Park and drove to Old Passage, for the start of our 6.25 mile walk. First we walked to have a look at the old ferry crossing, a little nostalgia moment for some. A ferry had been operating at this point since Roman times.

We moved on to look at the famous cliff by the Severn Bridge…

CCS Calendar and Notelets

As part of the Society 50th Anniversary celebrations next year, we are producing a Calendar, including the illustrations of the Town by local artist Mike Horsefield. The cover of the calendar is illustrated to the right.

As well as the calendar, some packs of notelets including the same illustrations as the calendar will also be produced.

Final prices and availability will be notified in due course.


The Environment Group have resumed their Working Parties, which aim to repair, tidy-up and generally take care of the public facilities and areas of interest in our town. All help and assistance gratefully received.

The regular programme is one Monday each month between 10am and 11.30am, with a refreshment stop afterwards. Other sessions are arranged as and when required. The next Working Group is on the 13th of May.
