CHURCHILL SPORTS CENTRE  MENDIP VILLAGES FITNESS

Churchill Sports Centre  is currently under threat of permanent closure. A working group named Mendip Villages Fitness made up of ex sports centre members, regular users, instructors and local residents and councilors who think that the centre should re-open. However, they need to know if residents feel the same, value the centre and wish it to thrive. Also what are the activities that they would want to be available.

In order to gather residents opinions a survey has been designed which is available at local shops but also online until Sunday 7th March. The survey is available here.

MILLENNIUM GREEN  

The Millennium Green Trust planted a number of trees in the small field on the south side of the river in March 2020. Due to the drought many failed to become established. It is hoped that they will be replaced in the New Year as part of North Somerset 'rewilding project'. The Millennium Green Trust is looking for volunteers to help with this project. If you would like to help further details is available here. Please contact the Parish Office on 838802 or email admin@congresbury-pc.gov.uk
