Former sporting celebrities from Bristol came together for the exhibition of a memories project at City Academy. They included former Olympic and Commonwealth games runner Nick Rose and past professional lightweight boxer and ParaOlympic trainer Bob Fisher from Knowle. Former Olympic athlete, triple jumper Vernon Samuels who attended St Mary Redcliffe School also came to lend his support. Nick Rose who attended Merrywood School in Knowle West was discovered when competing on Filwood fields. The Sporting Memories Project has been taking place in venues across Bristol for two years, including Knowle West Media Centre. The project in Knowle West had been working with Bedminster Down pupils to research local photographs and record memories of older residents - and the exhibition was a celebration of their work.
