|Activity||Bell ringing in St Andrew’s Church.|
|Details||We are a secular band of Bell Ringers who aim to develop and maintain ringing skills in a friendly environment making use of one of Congresbury’s hidden treasures – the fourth heaviest peal of 8 bells in the entire World. Three of these bells date from 1606. We ring for Church Services including Weddings as required and we practice virtually every Wednesday evening between 7.45 and 9.00pm and offer a warm welcome to visiting ringers and indeed anyone who would like to see what we do with a view to perhaps taking up bell ringing – please ring first for details.|

|Activity||Under 5’s education – learning through play|
|Details||We are a well-established Pre-school in the village of Congresbury, founded over 25 years ago in the old school rooms. We have grown considerably over the years and are lucky to have our own portakabin building with a lovely spacious garden within the grounds of St Andrew’s Primary School. We now offer places to all children from 2 to 4 year olds. All staff have recognised childcare qualifications and years of experience in supporting children to reach their full potential as set out in the statutory framework for the Early Years Foundation stage. This states that as practitioners we must consider the individual needs, interests and stages of development of all children in our care. We provide opportunities and activities that enable the children to develop their skills in all areas of learning in line with their individual needs.|

|Activity||Congresbury Footpaths Group was founded in March 1993 with the aim of ensuring that the footpaths within the village boundary were walked regularly. This is still done today, although walks are not confined to the village and the Group will often travel to neighbouring counties, especially for the Sunday walks.|
|Details||There are two walks per month – on the first Tuesday and the third Sunday. Tuesday walks are in the morning and are about 2 to 4 miles in the vicinity of the village or locations nearby. Sunday walks are planned for the day and can be from 5 to 9 miles and are further afield. Bluey, the village mini-bus is used on Sundays to transport members. Meetings are held twice a year to plan the walks programme. There is a summer outing in July to the seaside, where there is a choice of activities, from an energetic ramble to a lazy day on the beach. In the Autumn members enjoy a weekend away, for many years in Devon, but now we’ve ventured as far as Cornwall. A traditional Boxing Day walk attracts a good number of villagers and guests. Membership costs £2.50 per year and there is a small cost levied for each walk, plus a charge for Bluey, The group is covered by insurance. The winter and summer programmes and posters for each walk are posted on the 3 village noticeboards, on the village website and in the library. Details of each walk are also printed in the local newspapers, magazines and the village diary. New walkers are always welcome, and their dogs, where allowable.|
