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.
