Villagers were out in force at the weekend to clean up Congresbury.

A dedicated team of volunteers took to the streets on Saturday for a spring clean, leaving the village looking ‘amazing’.

Members of Yatton, Congresbury, Claverham and Cleeve Archaeological Research Team cleared moss and weeds from the cross in Broad Street, and a team of gardeners led by Angie Osmond replanted the Geoffrey Peacock Memorial Garden.

The event was organised by Congresbury Parish Council.

Chairman Diana Hassan said: “I would like to thank all the volunteers who took part.

“About 50 residents took part and we managed to clear litter from the A370, as well as the area around Kent Road, Southlands, the Millennium Green and Riverside Gardens plus Broad Street, the precinct and around the recreation club.

“The village now looks amazing, so thank you to everyone.”
