Clevedon Civic Society

2014 has been quite an eventful year in Clevedon. The number of cranes and scaffold lorries about the Town bear witness to how many significant building projects are underway.

The Conservation and Planning Group has commented on behalf of the Civic Society on the significant projects in the Town, and will continue to do so in the coming year.

In the meantime, Christmas Greetings to you all.

Conservation Group Chairman

John Tranter

Environment Group Chairman

Bob Hardcastle

Season’s greetings to all Civic Society members. Special thanks to those in the Environment Group for their hard work this year in connection with the Group’s activities. I hope that 2015 will see the proposed scheme for the Marine Lake completed and the Group

continuing its work in maintaining past Civic Society projects.

Footpaths Group Chair

Julie Slocombe

The Footpaths Group wishes everybody a very Happy Christmas, with invigorating walks to burn off that pudding!

We look forward to a wonderful year of walks in 2015.

I cannot believe that a year has gone by since I last wrote greetings to you all!

We have definitely had a good year with

some memorable moments, very much down to you all being so enthusiastic and supportive of the group, which makes my part in things both enjoyable and rewarding.

Have a great Christmas and raise a glass to the New Year.

We wish you a happy Christmas

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.

Messages from our Chairs

We live in a fast moving, dramatically changing and uncertain world. But as we reach the end of another year we can pause, at least mentally, to reflect on those institutions that give structure and stability to our lives.

Among the many of these our Civic Society stands tall as we move into our 45th year as a strong and active bastion of the best and we can acknowledge or participate in the 2000 year old Christian message.

So I rejoice in sending you all my good wishes for you and your families and friends to have a very happy and peaceful time this Christmastide.

Civic Society Chairman
