Tell us your story...


Community Stories is a chance to share inspirational stories of individuals and groups making a difference to communities across the Forest of Dean.

We want to hear from you if you have an inspirational story to share, or know of someone that does.  We are happy to receive stories in any format be that in writing, audio, or video footage, or if easier, our Community Builders will be happy to meet with you, have a conversation and capture the story. 

Our aim is to share these stories via this website and on our social media platforms to inspire others to make a difference in their communities and help make the Forest of Dean a stronger and more resilient place in which to live, work and play.


For more information, or to share your story please contact Nick Penny via or Jacob King via
