CODE CLUB is a new opportunity for young people in Congresbury, aimed at young people aged 8 -15 who are interested in learning the basics of computer programming.
FREE taster session at Congresbury Youth Club between 4.30pm and 6pm on Monday 1stOctober.
Subsequent sessions will be scheduled every Monday of term time, at times from 3.30 until about 6.30, depending on demand. They will cost £1.50 per session, and initially equipment will be available to borrow. Keen new programmers may eventually need to buy themselves some equipment, perhaps a Raspberry Pi of their own to work on at home, but no need to do so immediately. What is a Raspberry Pi? It’s a tiny computer, cheap enough that young people can experiment with programming it themselves, and through our project can develop coding skills to produce simple games, control models and much more. Volunteer tutors will also help you with the programming language Python, which is taught in our local secondary schools. If you are a young person interested in joining this group, come along on Oct 1st, preferably with a parent who can sign you up, or contact firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more. If you are an adult with any time to help, please let us know. Skills are not essential. We need tea-makers as well as computer programmers, though a knowledge of both would be perfect, of course.

Overnight 8-9 September a burglary occurred at a property in Venus Street, Congresbury. Window to the rear of the property forced open to gain entry and a search took place inside. No details of stolen items.
Part of the feedback we received from the pledge request for the new village hall, regarded sorting out the pedestrian crossing at the Precinct as some see that as a higher priority.
As I use this crossing daily and have experienced how dangerous it can be. I did write to North Somerset Council (NSC) back in 2012, but as only 1 recorded incident happened in the previous 3 years their only suggestion was using the local speedwatch group to monitor, but that did not happen.
There is currently an opportunity to lobby the Parish Council by commenting on its transport section of the Neighbourhood Plan – http://www.congresbury-pc.gov.uk/…/Congresbury%20Neighbourh…

The farming community was well represented among the large congregation attending the funeral of David Edwards (81) in St. Andrew’s Church, Congresbury, on March 26.
David was born at Brinsea Green Farm, eldest son of Bill and Evelyn, who had united the Edwards and Atwell families when they married.
“A gentleman who always took the time to stop and talk to you; he was not just being polite, that was Dick. He was genuinely interested in life and people.”
Such was the description of Richard Hodder by the vicar of Congresbury, Rev. Matthew Thomson, when he conducted his funeral service in St. Andrew’s church, Congresbury, on March 19.

Congresbury Residents Action Group (CRAG) has learned that a number of significant changes to Wrington Lane proposed by land agents Gladman are to be rejected by North Somerset Council’s highways department.
We thank a reader of our website who has suggested we share an important guide which came out last week. They found it was very thorough and liked the summery in each section with actionable items for the parent/teacher.
Cllr Tom Leimdorfer (Congresbury & Puxton Ward) will not be holding regular surgeries at the library on the last Friday of the month. He volunteers in the library twice a month, and is easy to contact by phone 01934 830435 or email; email@example.com
