Congresbury Parish Council

Congresbury residents have been busy sprucing up the village of late, and now the parish council is calling on more people to get involved.

Volunteers from the Blooming Congresbury group took to the streets with their gardening equipment to tidy up the village, sweeping up bags of leaves, weeds and litter.

The group focused on planting at the Geoffrey Peacock Memorial Garden and tidying the market cross.

Parish council chairman Di Hassan praised those who helped in the clean-up effort.

She said: “It makes such a difference especially now autumn is here and our roads and pavements are becoming littered with fallen leaves.

“We would ask all residents to look beyond their own gardens and sweep up the pavement outside their house, removing fallen leaves, weeds and litter.

“This not only improves the appearance of the village but will also stop the drains getting blocked and help to prevent flooding.”
