Filwood Hope Tea Party Fundraiser

Filwood Hope Advice Centre hosted a tea party fundraiser today, selling beautiful homemade cakes and other home crafted items in order to raise money for their centre and also to get to know their local residents a bit better. Emma, the HR manager, said how pleased she was to meet new people and to find out about other projects happening in the area. The centre is hoping to recruit some more volunteers this summer too, so if you are interested in getting involved, please contact Pearl or Emma on 0117 963 4566.

Today's MemoryScapes workshop at Knowle West Children's Centre

A big thanks to Knowle West Children's Centre for hosting our latest MemoryScapes workshop/ drop-in. We had a whopping 38 people attend, including parents, staff and children, as well as 4 of our existing members and other local residents. As ever, some hilarious stories were shared and new photographs were brought in and looked at, people in photos were identified and two participants even found out that they were distantly related! If you have anything that you would like to contribute to the installation, please contact me and I would be happy to scan it or take photos of it. Thanks Knowle West, What a great morning!

Next MemoryScapes workshop, open to everyone!

We are putting on a drop-in session at Knowle West Children's Centre on Leinster Avenue, next Monday (8th December) from 9am to 12noon. We will be showing some Knowle West TV from the 1970's as well as displaying some amazing pictures of local people from the 20's to the 90's that were taken in South Bristol. We need help recognising these people, so come down and have a look - see if you know anyone. But also, come along with your own pictures and stories to share them with us. This is open to the public, so bring your children or your grandparents, friends and family. Come and have a cup of tea and reminisce.

Todays MemoryScapes workshop on Filwood Pool

We just had a great session here at KWMC on the history of Filwood pool. Loads of pictures were brought in by local residents and some great stories were told. Thanks to everyone who has donated pics to us, especially the original photographs. It is so interesting. Who knew Bob Fisher met the Duke of Edinburgh! Really looking forward to our next session at the Children's Centre on Leinster Avenue, drop in between 9am and 12 noon, 8th December.
