Jubilee facelift for Victorian bandstand
CLEVEDON’S Victorian bandstand could be given a new lease of life in time for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.
Clevedon Civic Society is working with North Somerset Council in the hope of redecorating the seafront structure, replacing rotten panels and possibly creating an access for disabled people.
The bandstand was first built in 1887 to mark Queen Victoria’s golden jubilee and civic society members hope the revamp will be completed in time for this year’s jubilee celebrations in June.
The project is currently at an early stage, with the group and council working to identify where funding could come from.
A North Somerset Council spokesman said: “We’re pleased to be working with Clevedon Civic Society on this project to restore the bandstand, which needs panels replacing and decorating.
