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.
All meetings are held at

J B Bowler of Bath
J B Bowler & Sons' were the ‘Nuts & Bolts’ men of Bath.
The firm’s final closure was forced by Bath Council's compulsory purchase of the firm's Corn Street site for a multi-storey car park. Luckily, another local businessman, Russell Frears, was so struck by the historical continuity the premises represented that he bought the entire contents of the building for £2,000 and founded the Bath Industrial Heritage Trust to preserve them.
We will look at how place names are put together, how scholars interested in them come to their conclusions and how some juicy place names in Bristol, Somerset and Gloucestershire arose

Message from the Environment Group Chairman
What a successful working party we had on the 24th May!
Thanks to all of you who were able to help – one of the best ever in terms of numbers.
Just as well though as “many hands make light work” – and we managed to collect about twenty bags of mainly plastic rubbish from the sea shore area by Marshall’s Field – not to mention the three car tyres, plastic seat and numerous large plastic boxes etc.
Our thanks are due as well to Glendale for providing us with the “community toolkit trailer” and for taking all the rubbish away on completion. I think that is a facility we may well use again in the future.
