WERE you born at Wendover Maternity Hospital in Downend? If so, the new owners would love to hear from you.

They are looking for people willing to share photos and memories of the hospital, which closed in the early 1980s.

Things are coming full circle for the Grade 11 listed building, which is set to be filled with babies and young children again when it becomes the second Red Bus Nursery.

Conversion work is well under way and owner Liz Hogarth expects to welcome the first infants in May. She opened her first Red Bus Nursery in a former pub in Coombe Dingle in 2011.

You can contact Red Bus via their website. If you have memories of Wendover, why not also write or email Downend Voice too?
