Sporting Memories

The Sporting Memories Network launched their unique project at professional sports clubs across the city - including Gloucestershire in 2014.

Each week, small groups have been getting together in the Bristol Pavilion to reminisce about their favourite sporting memories.

The details are as follows:

  • Every Thursday on non-match days
  • Time – 12-13:30 
  • Location - Bristol Pavilion @ The Bristol County Ground, BS7 9EJ

The reminiscence groups start by looking at photos of legends from Gloucestershire Cricket, the wider world of cricket and also other sports stars from across the years. Conversations are also sparked by looking at sports reports, memorabilia and in some cases, former players from the club will go to meet the participants.

By tapping into this love of sport, older residents who struggle with their short term memory find their own happy and treasured memories from watching or even playing for Gloucestershire Cricket flood back.

People interested in volunteering to facilitate or support these groups or if they know someone who could benefit from attending the groups can find out more on their website, please Click here
