The Brunswick Wharf Project

The Brunswick Wharf Project needs you!

Are you interested in local history, fishing, shipbuilding or pottery trades? Or does your family have historical links to Bideford and the Port?

Do you live in the East or West side of town?

A new and exciting project from Bideford Bay Creatives starts in January and runs for 14 months. Funded by The People’s Health Trust Active Communities grant, we will be working with two neighbourhoods in Bideford, both sides of the water to set up a Community group of volunteers. This group will discover and celebrate local and historical connections to Brunswick Wharf and the Port of Bideford from early maritime history through to the present day.

People taking part will make new friends, get to know each other better, explore and research, share information and dig up the past. With support from Project Co-ordinator Sadie Green, the Community group will meet regularly throughout the year to devise, plan and put in place a programme of public activities for 2016. Training is also available with plenty of tea and cake!

If you and your friends are interested and would like to know more, email project@bbcdevon.org or telephone Sadie on 07530 508676

Printed information will also be available in the library.
