The first exhibition by Congresbury’s quilting group proved to be a huge success with a constant flow of visitors to The Old School Rooms where the group meets every Tuesday afternoon.
Sales of their work, raffle tickets and tea and cakes raised more than £320 for Children’s Hospice Southwest.

This historic photo of Congresbury Scouts was taken in 1922. Can anyone identify the two scouts on the right of the back row? One of them may have had the surname HUNT. The others have been named.

We are appealing to the public to be vigilant and to look out for vulnerable neighbours, relatives and friends after several incidents in Nailsea and Clevedon where elderly people have been conned.
The Big Breakfast held on Saturday raised a whopping £1,480 for Weston Hospicecare. Well done to everyone who worked so hard to make it a success, and to all those who gave their support and bought a big breakfast. Special thanks go to Julie Gosling and family, without whom it would not have been possible.
Remember to take all your unwanted clothes and items to the Hospice shop in Broad Street, and while you’re there, have a look round, there may be just the thing you were looking for.
Loyal as ever, although the Congresbury branch of the Royal British Legion is now closed, so the standard was not present, the usual crowd of villagers gathered at the War Memorial Hall on November 11 to remember Armistice Day. A contingent of pupils from St. Andrew’s Junior School was there and one of the pupils, 10-year-old Maddie Smith, who is a Girl Guide, carried the standard of the Congresbury Scouts. Traffic stopped at 11a.m. for a short service, conducted by the vicar of Congresbury, Rev. Matthew Thomson. Ben White sounded the Last Post and Reveille and 97-year-old Fred Bailey, in a wheelchair, gave the Act of Remembrance.
