Following a successful campaign against plans to plant over 1,000 trees in Walton Park, a group of local Clevedon residents have decided to work together to keep the open space well maintained as a community asset.
Locals including Clevedon BID member, Tom Vaughan, aim to ensure the area, fondly known locally as “The Green”, is maintained and continues to be an open space for all to enjoy.
Walton Park in Clevedon is a unique amenity space with iconic views, which is enjoyed by people of various ages and interests. The group recently met together (abiding to social distancing of course) to improve the general appearance of the area. Having planted daffodil bulbs around the benches and cut back brambles to widen access to the coastal path, there was even banana cake!
Plans for regular meets to maintain the park have been agreed with people working together on Thursday and Saturday afternoons. Plans are also in hand to liaise with The Clevedon Community Gardeners and Clevedon Conservation Volunteers.
You can keep up to date with their plans and get involved by joining the open Facebook Group, Friends of Walton Park (akaThe Green), Clevedon.
