2016 – Grant Awarded - £500

Thursday 18th -Monday 22nd August 2016

Over 20 years ago a post card of fishing boats on Appledore Quay said “Appledore is still very much a working port thanks to the shipbuilders and fishermen.” Our project is about the Appledore’s fishing heritage- past, present and future, conservation and healthy sustainable fish. SHARK TALES will promote the conservation of sharks that swim off the N. Devon coast. These are related to Rays and Dogfish called elasmobranch.

Working with the Shark Trust and various local groups including the churches and Appledore Carnival. The aim is to have fun and educate children ,families and all ages of local people and visitors during August.  We plan a Mermaids Purse/Skate Egg Hunt Competition, Flotsam craft workshop, Appledore Shark Angling Club Talk and Shark Trust Talk and Shark craft Carnival Workshop. The Cookery Demonstration will showcase dishes for sustainable skate and rock salmon and local scallops. Lunches and teas are available at some events. Children activities at Appledore out of school summer club will include a Carnival workshop, Practical cookery /shark information and a group will attend the Flotsam workshop.
