A project to make the village of Congresbury more beautiful is asking people to support the initiative by taking part in a village clean-up.

The Blooming Congresbury group was formed earlier this year and is organising a three-year programme designed to help make the village more attractive.

The volunteer group plans to install 13 hanging baskets at the Old School Rooms, in Station Road, while many businesses in Broad Street have also agreed to maintain and water hanging baskets outside their shops.

It also hopes to redesign the Geoffrey Peacock memorial garden, which is located near the village cross at the junction of High Street and the A370.

The clean-up will take place from 9.30am to noon on Saturday and will focus on litter-picking, weeding and tidying.

Anyone who would like to take part in the Congresbury clean-up is asked to meet at Broad Street.
