Grass roots story gathering is at the heart of COAST. 32 locals have been brought on board as story gatherers to reach out and encourage sharing and to gather material for our story bank. If you have a story to tell do please use our survey link but should you know of any important resources that would help our local story gatherers please use the appropriate form below to contact them. Some but not all of our story gatherers speak Gaelic.
I have my own story to tell being 45 years old and at the age of 42 sold everything I had in Glasgow, quit my career as a National Account Manager of an Independent Recruitment Company and with my wife and kids moved to Millport and bought a business.
Now over 3 years on, not only have we settled into our new life, I am chair of the tourist association, a volunteer coastguard and a member of this fine group – and really interested in gathering the many stories which have shaped Cumbrae through time.
