The year's first Clevedon Sunday Market being held.


Sunshine and soaring temperatures welcomed the start of the Clevedon Sunday Market at the weekend.

The first Sunday market of the year saw dozens of local independent traders selling their wares in Hill Road, Alexandra Road and Bellevue Road.

Crowds made the most of the warm weather by browsing a variety of goods from the likes of Bath Soft Cheese, Beats Ales, Leagrove Antiques, and Stuff and Nonsense.

A spokesman said: “We were thrilled with the crowds that came out to support the first Sunday Market of the year.

“There was such a fantastic buzz in the area too with so many shops, businesses, cafés and restaurants opening especially for market day.”

The market also raised funds for a trio of charities, supporting the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds, Children’s Hospice South West and Avon Wildlife Trust.

The market will be held from 10am-2pm on the first Sunday of each month from April to September.
