Thursday 27th April.

Doors open at 7.30 for the AGM, followed at 8.15 by the slide show and social gathering.

We have sifted through the archives on our website; records of old exhibitions, books and family albums containing many photographs of old Kingsdown. We have selected pictures of shops, houses and streets in the war-damaged townscape of Kingsdown in the 1960s that show the area before High Kingsdown  and Dove Street flats were built and before much of the BRI’s post-war expansion.

We hope to give a slide show of these vintage scenes, as well as Kingdown Street Fairs, community planting and Homegrown events. We hope to put together a digital record of  all these photographs, together with any more you bring along that you are happy for us to copy and add to the collection.

Over a glass of wine, we can share memories and discuss how Kingsdown used to be, how it  is now and perhaps how we would like it to be in the future.
