In between renovating the phone box we are taking part in Window Wonderland this Feb. The phone box will be lit up again on the evenings of 8th – 11th February. We are part of a trail around BS9 so why not do a tour and see what everyone is doing. Trail map and more details are on the window wanderland website.

Back by popular demand! Snack Chat and Reminisce gets a second outing but this time at a weekend so that more people can attend. We will again be at St Edyth’s Church Hall and it will be a chance to come along and share your memories, photographs and documents about Sea Mills. They’ll also be tea, cake and great company.
Saturday 8th & Sunday 9th are key dates in the Sea Mills 100 Calendar. Our mini-museum on the Square will open on Saturday and remain for at least a year.
Our heritage trail, devised by local residents will be open over the weekend. Visitors will be able to tour Sea Mills and find out who lived in some of the houses when they were first built. It’s going to be a very special weekend, watch this space for more details. You can read more about the weekend and download a trail map on our front page
Today was an important day for the project. We started work on the phone box in the Square and also held our first session at Bristol Archives where we leaned about how to start researching our homes.
We think that the phone box will need three more sessions to complete the preparation for renewing the red paint. We do need a few more volunteers for this part of the project, particularly to help interact with the public, make sure no one trips on our equipment and look after the volunteers doing the sanding.
Here’s some pictures from today’s work, we even got a visit from our MP Darren Jones.
We woke this morning to a winter wonderland…
