Abundant flowers decorated Congresbury Methodist Church for the Thanksgiving service of Betty Sutton, on March 6th, reflecting that many of her 90 years of life, centred on flowers.
Born in Oldmixon, Betty attended Hutton village school, and then moved to Weston-super-Mare, where she was a Girl Guide and joined the Red Cross. She met her husband Derrick at a village dance when he was stationed at R.A.F. Locking. Aged 16, she moved to London and worked as a Red Cross nurse in the Soho Women’s Hospital, before returning to the West Country to train as a State Registered nurse at Bristol Royal Infirmary.
Congresbury Scouts love to be outdoors and do a lot of hiking and camping. Scouts grow very fast, and for some families, it’s a real struggle to keep them in suitable warm clothing and footwear for activities. Leaders have had a number of occasions when young people have not been able to enjoy their outdoor activities just because they have been too cold and wet. We have decided to address this by setting up a kit exchange within the group, so that outdoor gear can be passed down to those who don’t have enough of their own.
To get this ball rolling, we need to assemble a reasonable stock of various sizes that are available for exchange. We are looking for waterproof jackets, trousers, gloves and gaiters especially, and for walking boots in various sizes.
If anyone has that sort of stuff hanging around outgrown or unloved, we would love to hear from you.

The next meeting to plan Love Congresbury will be on Tuesday March 14 at 7pm in Congresbury Methodist Church. This meeting is open to anyone who would like to be involved.
Congresbury Residents Action Committee (CRAG) has decided take on a development company at a public inquiry due to take place later this month. CRAG made the decision to fight Gladman Homes after North Somerset council’s U-turn to approve a decision to allow building.
In August 2016, North Somerset planners cited four good reasons for opposing an appeal lodged by Gladman Homes for their application to build 50 dwellings on land off Wrington Lane.
Now six months later, following advice from planning officers, the council has done a 180 degree turn and approved the plan – even though they had already approved a scheme by Sunley Homes for 38 houses in a nearby field.
The New Village Hall Development Trust is pleased to announced that Debbie Fortune estate agents are extending their generous support to the new building project by donating 10 per cent of their fees on any house they sell or rent in Congresbury in 2017 and nominating the development trust as their charity of choice at the North Somerset Show on May 1 when trust members will be rattling collection buckets and explaining the project to visitors from all over North Somerset.
