What's coming up soon and what happened recently

Meetings

At the recent Executive Meeting, a discussion was held regarding the resumption of meetings at our usual venue, the St Andrews Church Centre. It was decided that at the moment, we still cannot hold meetings that will enable the number of people that we expect to come to be safely accommodated. All being well, we hope that full meetings can be restarted in January 2022.

NEW FEATURE

We now have a new page in the History Group section - Local Maps. In there you will find links to the historical maps section of the National Library of Scotland, featuring the Clevedon and the local area through the past two centuries in maps. To access this new feature, follow this link or click on the item in the 'Features' menu above.
