'Telling the Inner Forth Story' is a project by the Inner Forth Landscape Initiative (IFLI). The Inner Forth describes the area around the upper Firth of Forth river estuary in Scotland. IFLI has been developed by a number of organisations who are working in partnership to conserve, enhance and celebrate the unique landscape, and the natural and cultural heritage of Inner Forth area to make it interesting, exciting and accessible to locals and visitors alike.
The 'Telling The Inner Forth Story' project focuses on sharing and celebrating stories from around the Inner Forth area; the stories which are only known by the locals and passed on by word of mouth. These stories are what makes the places around the Forth meaningful and special to the people who use the area every day.
This dedicated Hold Me Dear collection page is a place to submit and share these places and stories with people who live in the area and beyond.
The collection was kickstarted with three workshops facilitated by HERE+NOW. These workshops were held at the Forth Riverside, Black Devon Wetland and Fallin Bing with children from local primary and secondary schools. The output of the workshops is represented here with pictures and words from the children sharing their stories of the Inner Forth.
It ís not too late to be a part of the Telling the Inner Forth Story project. This collection page is on-going and offers a platform for anyone to submit a photograph of a place important to them from around the Inner Forth landscape. Your story and special place can be a part of this collection by emailing a photo and 50 words about why that place is important to you here.
