The Patchway Memory Wall

Residents young and a little older have been sending us their memorable images of Patchway from across many decades and we are delighted to be able to share these with the whole community.


Maybe you will spot someone you used to know, or a building you used to work in across these fabulous images!

Patchway’s Platinum Year So Far

Patchway has already been celebrating our 70th Anniversary with a fabulous Party in the Park on 8 July where thousands of residents and friends gathered together for a day of live music and entertainment at Scott Park, and included Crole’s Funfair, yummy food and drink, kids activities, a market, local organisations, raffle and quiz.

The Official Opening of the Norman Scott Park Pavilion and Sporting Facilities by Mayor of Patchway Cllr Dayley Lawrence, Cllr Roger Loveridge and local celebrity Geoff Twentyman also took place on 8 July.

And the Poem for Patchway initiative is underway with young people at our schools being engaged to create poems about why they love to live in Patchway.
