On Saturday 24th June Congresbury Singers will be celebrating 40 years of singing in Congresbury with a concert in St Andrews Church reprising favourites from those 40 years.
A difficult Spring for local gardeners did affect the entries at the Congresbury Horticultural Society Spring Show on Saturday, but villagers pulled out all the stops and produced a colourful and enjoyable event.
Show Secretary Lyn Bacon summed it up when she said that the warm weather encouraged all the daffodils to open early, and they were then drastically damaged by wind and rain.
However the Old School Rooms still blossomed with a feast of colour and perfume, and, once again, children’s entries were numerous and fascinating.
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.

As yet no one is using the Horticultural Society marquee after the summer show on Saturday 1st July. Organising a “do” after the show as a great way to make money for your Society. We are happy for you to use it free of charge and the only cost is lighting and chairs if required. If you are interested then please contact Liz English on 834333.
Congresbury Cricket Club fell agonisingly short of victory in their debut season of the SuperCric8 indoor competition.
Having put a disappointing summer campaign behind them, Congresbury embarked on this new challenge with relish, finally falling at the semi-final stage to Weston-Super-Mare C.C.
The Congresbury afternoon WI meet in the Methodist Hall on the 3rd Wednesday of each month at 2.15 and are a small, very friendly group, always happy to welcome visitors and new members.
