A spring clean will take place at St Andrew's Church, in Congresbury.


As the spring season draws ever-closer, community groups in one North Somerset village are looking for people to help tidy up their neighbourhood in anticipation of longer days and warmer weather.

The month of March will see two spring cleans take place in Congresbury.

The first of these will take place on Saturday at St Andrew’s Church, off Church Drive, from 9.30am-1pm.

A church spokesman said: “It is that time of year again where we give the church a spring clean and try to remove the cobwebs.

“If anyone can spare some time, please come and help.”

The second community clean of the month will take place at the Geoffrey Peacock memorial garden, in Broad Street.

Members of the Blooming Congresbury group, which is working to beautify the village, will be out planting new bulbs in the garden from 9.30am on March 18. The group says it is looking for extra volunteers to lend a hand on the day.
