Following the submission of over 90 diaries from people who live and work in the Tamar Valley this June, the Tamar Valley AONB’s Cordiale* project team are delighted to present a community event this month, including readings and installations, created through the words of our Valley residents.
Diarykeepers is a project about celebrating the present, marking the past and then looking forward to how we want the Valley to be in the coming years and the part we all play in shaping its future.
Organiser, Anne-Marie Culhane, says, “It’s been a fascinating process, hearing about the thoughts, ideas, daily lives, dreams and fears of Tamar Valley residents. We had participants from age 4 to age 80 taking part and it’s surprising how much diversity, as well as how much common ground, there is…come and see for yourselves!”
Anne-Marie Culhane and Ruth Ben-Tovim are working hard to create a free live event, which will take place on Sunday 14th October at Roy Clarke’s market garden, Hunters Oak in St Dominick parish. Free parking is available at the Who’d Have Thought It pub, St Dominick, where transportation will be provided to the venue.
The event will feature material from the diaries, along with the resonant words of Joseph Snell, a St Dominick diary keeper almost 100 years ago.
Please join us between 12:30pm and 4:30pm, at a time to suit you. Small groups will be guided around at half hourly intervals (tours last for 1 hour). This exciting event will be popular – if you are restricted for time, we would advise you to join the earlier sessions. Refreshments will be available.
For further information, or to discuss access issues, please contact Anne-Marie Culhane, tel: 01208 871767, 07849 073394, email: email@example.com or tweet: @diarykeepers.
We are still looking for people who have been Diarykeepers to be part of the event. If you are interested, please come along to a rehearsal on Saturday 13th October (1:00pm – 4:00pm) at the market garden, Hunters Oak – please call Anne-Marie if you are able to take part.
