How Lucky I Was – Memories of Sea Mills

Memories are being shared and refreshed in Sea Mills with the publication of a new book. How Lucky I Was is written by people who grew up in or visited Sea Mills as children in the 1930s to 1950s. It’s been put together by the Sea Mills 100 project, which has been celebrating 100 years of the Bristol neighbourhood.  Contributors to the book include current residents as well as those who have since moved away, with copies being sent as far away as Canada and Australia.  Dedicated to “Sea Mills children everywhere and everywhen,” the stories told in the book exude a warmness for Sea Mills as a special place to grow up

Old photos from the mid to late 1950’s

One of our alumni, Haydn, has shared a photo of his old class at Sea Mills and himself in later cricketing days.  After moving to Plymouth where he studied and taught PE and outdoor education, Haydn emigrated to Western Australia where he continued to teach and played both cricket and hockey at County level. He remembers ‘Vivid memories of Friday afternoon films in a Nissan hut and sport on the playing fields down by the train track and Avon River.’  Thanks for the memories Haydn!
