Volunteers are being sought by a parish council which hopes to make its village a ‘more attractive place to live’.

Congresbury Parish Council is calling on its villagers to take part in a spring clean on March 24 to improve the look and feel of the area.

The parish council hopes to tidy public spaces, and replant the Geoffrey Peacock Memorial Garden, but it is calling for more volunteers to take part.

Chairman Diana Hassan said: “Over the past two years the parish council has been very proactive in making the village a brighter, cleaner and more attractive place to live.

“Events such as the spring clean day are designed to foster a greater sense of community and will encourage all our residents, young and old to take pride in their village.”

The spring clean, which has been organised by the parish council and Love Congresbury, is due to get underway begin at the cross, in Broad Street, at 9am.
