As you probably know, East Park housing estate was originally the site of Eastville Workhouse and part of nearby Rosemary Green is an unmarked burial ground (1851-1895) for more than 3,500 residents of that institution. Last summer residents and local historians formed Eastville Workhouse Memorial Group (EWMG) with the aim of placing a permanent memorial on Rosemary Green to remember those who were laid to rest there.
After gaining permissions and support from Bristol City Council and Eastville Health Centre, EWMG are now putting a planning application in for a memorial and history plaque and will begin fund-raising for these very shortly. This meeting is to present the plans and to find out your views about the proposals. It is also an opportunity for you to get involved in the project. So please come along and find out what EWMG have been up to.
