To help make North Somerset an even better place to live, work, study and visit
Provide some facilities for our many less-active lake users, who come to take in the view rather than plunge in the water. The whole lake area is regularly washed by the waves at spring tides, so we will install some solid concrete benches backed into the wall which can withstand this treatment. Concrete and stone can look a bit bleak so we will cheer up the lake surround with 3 lively ceramic murals donated by local artist Nancy Farmer.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
On sunny days Clevedon Marine Lake is alive with activity - swimmers, families crabbing, kayaks, paddleboards, sailors, model boats - but we don't yet cater for the less-active. We have lots of older citizens who enjoy strolling along the sea-front and would appreciate a bench to park themselves on.for a while before continuing their promenade. We also have mums and dads with young families who regularly take them for a walk by the lake, so three cheerful ceramic murals showing different aspects of lake activity will provide something to look at on those days when the lake is quiet.
