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.

Christine Thomas had a 40 year career with the police in London and Hong Kong – not as a police officer but as a member of the administrative staff looking after files and indexes.

Working in the New Scotland Yard Archives was an experience in itself but then came the opportunity for a 2½ year tour of duty in Hong Kong – Christine ended up staying there for 20 years!

In retirement Christine spends her time researching the many normal everyday British families who found themselves in Hong Kong in the 19th and early 20th centuries.
