The response to our first open gardens day was overwhelming!  Four hundred visitors descended on Tickenham and helped us to raise £750 each for Alive and the Brown Rock Woodland Project.  Thank you to all who supported us.  Watch out for information about next year’s open gardens day – date provisionally fixed for 19th July 2020.


It’s nearly here –  Tickenham’s first ever open gardens day!  Sunday 23rd June, 11.00 a.m. to 4.00 p.m.   The open gardens are:

54 Clevedon Road
101 Clevedon Road
237 Clevedon Road
The Poplars, Old Lane
Little Duck Lodge, Church Lane
Little Orchard, Church Lane
Jacklands House, Jacklands Bridge
Rose Villa, Jacklands Bridge
Rose Cottage, Jacklands Bridge
We very much hope that Tynings Climbers, 109 Clevedon Road, will also be open but due to illness this may not be possible.

Each garden will display a GARDEN OPEN sign.

During the day refreshments will be available at the village hall on Clevedon Road, where you can park and buy your ticket.  Or, you can pay at the first garden you visit but do remember to visit the hall for refreshments and plant sales.
If you have any queries please ring 07740 085 015

We look forward to welcoming you.


Tickenham’s Annual Parish Meeting will be held on Monday 15th April 2019 at 7.30 p.m. in the Village Hall.  As well as the usual Parish Council annual business, there will be opportunity to hear from NATIONAL GRID representatives about the ground surveys and construction programme in advance of works in our village: you will be able to ask questions, including concerns about the works depots and the haul roads. Please put the date in your diaries now and we look forward to seeing you.

Tickenham Road Action Group

The Tickenham Road Action Group is being established to influence planning of the new road links near Tickenham being proposed by the Joint Spatial Plan. The new road links will funnel increased traffic volumes through the village and impact on village life.
If you are interested in supporting this group and helping to shape events then please sign-up on the website at www.trag.org.uk.


Following the information below regarding the Joint Spatial Plan and options for taking traffic from Nailsea to the M5 J20, we understand that the further consultation document will be issued early in February, probably on the 6th.  Known as the Joint Local Transport Plan, it is really the detail of the proposals in the Joint Spatial Plan (November 2018).

Cllr Nigel Ashton and appropriate North Somerset Council officers have agreed to attend a meeting for Tickenham residents on MONDAY 4th MARCH 2019 from 6.00 until 7.00 p.m. at the NSC offices, Castlewood, Clevedon.   The option of diverting traffic from Hanham Way, Nailsea, to the B3130 near Washing Pound Lane and onward to the M5 will have a significant effect on Tickenham.  This further meeting is an opportunity to hear more about the transport options contained in the Joint Local Transport Plan direct from Cllr Ashton and the NSC officers: you can voice your opinions and  ask questions.  Visitors’ parking at Castlewood is very limited, so please share transport with your neighbours.
