‘Guardians of the Reef’ Digital Stories

Posted on: 13th July 2018 No Comments

It’s always lovely to screen the digital stories we create, gathering people together to share, laugh and celebrate their stories. For the Guardians of the Reef’ project we held a series of screening events at the Cricket Inn in Beesands, who put on a fabulous crab supper for us, and at Hope Cove in the gorgeous little Reading Room and beautiful Chapel. We had some great feedback and are so glad we have been able to help record the heritage of the shellfishing industry so that it is not all lost.

Most of the digital stories are now on our website here, with a few more soon to go up, and we will soon be making a DVD with all the stories on to give to participants and for the South Devon and Channel Shellfishermen Association to sell into the future. Here’s a couple to whet your appetite…

Graham Lynn- Memories of a Beesands boy

William James Trout- Life of a Hallsands Fishing Family

Thank you to everyone who contributed their stories, to Beshlie at the South Devon and Channel Shellfishermen Association for being generally fabulous, to the Cricket Inn for being such wonderful hosts and to the Heritage Lottery Fund for funding this project.
