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.
Snack, Chat and Reminisce was made possible with additional funding from Heritage Schools, LinkAge and the support of Local Learning.

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.
