NEWS: New Year, new video, new you tube channel!

Happy New Year everyone, it’s time to get this project really going. In the next few weeks we will be booking visits to our local record office and getting started with researching into the estate and into our own homes. The information we find will be used in our heritage trail and our mini-museum in the phone box on the Square. The trail will take place over the weekend of 8/9 June 2019 and the mini-museum will also open that weekend and stay for a year.  Look our for news of developments here, on our social media, mailouts and on the noticeboards at the Cafe on the Square, outside the old Ironmongers and of course keep an eye on the phone box on the Square.

We have also opened a new you tube channel  for the video clips we will generate during the project. We hope you enjoy our New Year video below, it’s also on our you tube channel along with our Christmas lights switch on for those who missed it.

NEWS: Christmas lights switch on

Despite poor weather quite a crowd gathered last Tuesday 18th December 2018 to watch long-standing local Sea Mills resident, WW2 veteran Stan Tozer turn on possibly the most unusual Christmas lights in the country. Our lit tree is causing quite a stir as it’s INSIDE a disused phone box on Sea Mills Square – on the junction of Shirehampton Road and St Edyth’s Road in north Bristol.

The tree will be lit every evening over the Christmas period and see us into 2019 which mark 100 years of the Sea Mills estate. Selfies are definitely encouraged! #SeaMillsTree

The tree was made possible with the financial support of: Keith and Gill Bonham, Collistear Hair and Beauty, Sea Mills Together and Sea Mills Community Initiatives. The decorations were made by local school children.
