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.
Buildings in Sea Mills will be open for Doors Open Day – Watch this space!

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
In November 2018 we ran “Snack, Chat and Reminisce”, a chance for older residents to get together over a cuppa and some cake and share memories at St Edyth’s Church.
The group were joined by a year 6 class from Sea Mills Primary School who had been learning about the area and about interviewing people. They had lots of questions to ask.
Now the children have written up the stories they were told and they are on display at Sea Mills Library along with some historic photos of the area. Pop along and have a look.

(both identical 2 hour workshops)
We have arranged free workshops with Bristol Archives to show us how we can find out about our homes and the people that lived in them when they were new. A lot of our homes in Sea Mills were built in the 1920’s and would have housed returning veterans of WW1, however some houses were later, and a few have been around a lot longer. Come and find out when your home was built and start to find out who lived there. We will also be looking at public buildings and the history of the estate. We’ll be looking mainly at houses in Sea Mills Coombe Dingle, but if you don’t live in the immediate area you could still come and help as there will be lots to do.
The information we gather will form part of a heritage trail and our mini-museum which opens in the old red phone box on Sea Mills Square in June 2019.

If you miss the switch on please have a look on your way home! Selfies encouraged #SeaMillsTree
