Peveril Point - another great project

Another wonderful example of partnership working was opened yesterday at Peveril Point.

The idea by Sally Maltby, a resident of Peveril Point and a watch keeper of The National Coastwatch lookout at Peveril, sees information boards put up in the old gun emplacements.

The project was opened by the Town Mayor - Bill Trite, Sally Maltby and John Master of NCI (oh some Station Officer was used to hold the tape)

I have to declare an interest in the project, as I had an input on a couple of the boards but alot of local people, swanage museum, companies, Town Council and partner agencies came together to give a insight into life at Peveril Point. The boards contain information on The Coastguard, wildlife, shipwrecks, World War Two, National Coastwatch, history of Peveril Point just to name a few.

So pop on down and have a read of the boards - there is a education booklet which encourages children (and adults!) to read the history and answer questions.

My favourite board (below) - it would be of course I co wrote it !

Well done on the new information boards , "Around The Point" - they are really well put together and very informative. Only read half of them today so will be back to review the rest soon . Fantastic.
