Volunteers met at the Precinct a couple of weeks ago to clear the weeds from the pavements. Why not have a go yourself? All you need is a spade, a brush and a green bin to put the rubbish. It’s more fun in company, but pedestrians will stop and chat anyway. Join the many people who keep the road and pavement outside their properties tidy. It makes so much difference to our village.

Some of you may recognise my name – I have lived in Congresbury most of my life and my children attend St Andrews Primary School.
I am making contact with you to see if any of your organisations have any projects that would benefit from some volunteered help. My employers, Pelican Business Services, offer their employees time off to help with local community projects and I would love to be able to use this to give something back to the village and community. The number of volunteers, and who that would be, would be decided depending on what work is required.
Previous projects have included painting schools, weeding gardens, walking dogs or spending time with the elderly.
If you have anything in mind that you would like to use us for, then please let me know. Or if there’s nothing planned at the moment, please keep us in mind for any future projects and feel free to contact me. (firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com)
