What's on for families

Activities for families

We are beginning to plan some activities again. This has been very disrupted due to covid and because of the community room building delay.

Over the holidays Bristol Sport usually run Sports days for children. Check the newsletter for summer plans!

Unfortunately our family trip to We the Curious (Bristol's fab science centre) was cancelled after a fire there damaged the building.  Watch this space for a new date. 

This term we enjoyed the Red Nose day disco! 


Our first family swim was very popular and sold out quickly! These Saturday swims are for over 8s or for younger children with a parent (under 8s must have a parent in the water with them). Tickets are on sale from the office from the Monday before each swim. £1 per person. Read the guidelines here.

Remaining aates for 2022 are:
May 21
June 11
July 16


Our adult community history project linked to the SS Great Britain is now underway. Parents are researching ways to make this wonderful Bristol attraction more accessible for families and more relevant to our diverse community. They are also helping to bust some myths - did you know for example that the SS Great Britain was a passenger ship and a cargo boat - but never had any links to the slave trade (it was built a generation after!)?

Mums' fitness runs on Monday mornings from 9-10 in the Sports hall. Please come along to find out more; it's a small, friendly group, ladies only, and everyone can work at their own pace. 

STRESS BUSTING- a free course for parents will run on Wednesdays from 28th September, wiht a taster sesison on 21st September. Email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for more information.

An interesting after-school family project is coming up in May, investigating important women in Bristol's history! More information here...

The Hub

Our Hub library is open after school on Tuesdays and Fridays in March for families to come and have a look or borrow a book.

Community room update

The extension to the community room is delayed, but once complete we will have a creche room and a training room. We already have a cooking project and Stress Busting ready to run in this new space. We can't wait!

Cycling support

Friends of Hannah More can still fund Bikeability courses for children who would like to learn. These are at the Family Cycling Centre in Hengrove; you would need to make your own way there. Our cycling project this year was lovely - read about this here.
