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
The Civic Society has just announced the winners of its prestigious awards which it makes annually to new buildings or landscape projects which it considers the most interesting and which will enhance the townscape.
The two Community Achievement awards are shared by the Clevedon Pier Trust for the new visitor centre and to MARLENS for restoration of the town's Marine Lake.
Community Achievement Awards
The Society's Environment Awards (Highly Commended) go to three worthy winners, Murray’s in Hill Road, Teatro Lounge in Great Western Road and The Lodge in The Avenue.

The Submarine Cold War
Guy Liardet left the Navy in 1989 in the rank of Rear Admiral having served in 14 ships in most parts of the world – seven times through the Suez Canal! He is an anti submarine and mine warfare specialist and has held several weapon development and trials posts. His last two tours were as a sea-going Rear-Admiral, mainly operating with the Americans and finally, Commandant of the Joint Services Defence College at Greenwich, running educative courses for officers at half-colonel rank in all three services.
