Whilst many plans for marking the 75th Anniversary of VE Day have had to be cancelled due to the lockdown, @SeaMills100 is tweeting a series of short wartime stories and photos from Sea Mills and Coombe Dingle every day in the lead up to the VE Day 75th anniversary.

Addison’s Oak in Sea Mills was nominated for the Woodland Trust’s Tree of the Year 2019.
