This new organisation will be responsible for commissioning local health services across these areas. They are asking for people to ‘opt in’ to their mailing list urgently- by 31st March so they can continue to ask for your views on a variety of health issues across the area and keep you updated on what is going on.

Andrew Sheppy would have loved the fact that all his numerous friends and relatives nearly broke the ‘Fire Regulations’ in the Methodist School Rooms on Wednesday 21st February 2018. There was a full house at the History Groups meeting to celebrate Andrews life in Congresbury.
Some of Andrews relatives came from Somerset as well as the last of his cousin’s still living in the Village. Two of his teachers from Nailsea school were able to add a little of his time there. Regretfully, they were unable to verify if Andrew wore a ‘Bowler hat’ on his first day at Grammer School. There was also a strong contingent of present and past ‘Vet College’ Students.
Andrew loved Congresbury, he never wished to move and had set his heart on his family continuous farming at Cobthorn Farm for 200 years. Regretfully, this was cut short due to his untimely death on 9th May 2017. Click here to read full report
