Meadows to Meaders is back for Season 5 – tell us your stories!

If you didn’t get a chance to catch the fourth episode of the Southmead soap opera, Meadows to Meaders, when it was aired on Radio Bristol over the Jubilee bank holiday weekend, don’t worry!

You can tune in by clicking here and hear all four parts of Southmead Cares together with chat and insights from the cast.

Details from our third episode, Love on the Mead, performed live at the Greenway Centre in May are also available on the Local Learning website.

We are hoping to create a fifth episode, Fab Living on the Mead. It will continue our tradition of collecting true stories from people who have lived, worked and grown up in Southmead. This time  we will be building on the remaining foundations of the post war pre-fabs in Badock’s Wood.

  • Did you know anyone who lived in the pre-fabs in Bowness Gardens?
  • Maybe you can remember playing in Badock’s Woods and can share some of your childhood games?
  • Perhaps you have stories about the Bronze Age burial mound.

If you have stories to share or would like to get involved we would love to hear from you.
