    OUR FOREST EVENTS Community ideas wanted for ‘Our Forest’ £3m lottery bid An opportunity for people and community organisations to discuss project ideas for Our Forest's planned National Lottery Heritage Fund Bid. BOOK TICKETS: Saturday 13th April, Lydney Town Hall - 1pm - 4pm BOOK TICKET: Sunday 14th April, Mitcheldean Community Centre - 1pm - 4pm We’re excited to announce that we are leading on preparing a new £3million bid to the National Heritage Lottery Fund (NLHF). ​ Called ‘Our Forest’ this new community-driven project will focus on the heritage of the Forest of Dean To prepare for this bid, we are asking local people, community groups and organisations to have their say at two community events we are hosting this weekend. ​ Taking place at 1pm-4:30pm on Saturday (13 April) at Lydney Town Hall and 1pm-4:30pm on Sunday (14 April) at Mitcheldean Community Centre , these events are open for anyone to attend, to share and discuss ideas for potential heritage projects, partnerships and collaborations that could be included in the bid for funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund (NLHF). ​ Deb Cook, our Volunteering Manager at FVAF said “Heritage is what you think is important and should be preserved. It could be about improving access to landscapes, historical sites, or collections; cultural activity or traditions; stories and celebrations as well as more traditional ideas of heritage. It can be anything from the past or even present that you value and want to pass on to future generations. ​ She added: “We’re asking the community to come along to one of these events to be part of the conversation and tell us what they think is important to include in the ‘Our Forest’ project.” ​ Building upon the legacy of the Foresters' Forest Landscape Partnership programme, ‘Our Forest’ will focus on involving diverse people, grass-roots organisations, and the voluntary community sector, with projects that involve young people, older people, hardly reached groups, as well as focusing on mental health and wellbeing.

  • Gwynneth Weaver | Mysite

    Pag-aaral ng Kaso: Gwynneth Walker Lumipat kami sa Forest ilang taon na ang nakalipas at naging ganap na bago sa lugar na itinakda ko tungkol sa pagsali sa mga club at paglabas at malapit nang makipagkilala sa mga tao. Isang araw sa Book Club ko may narinig akong nagbabanggit ng Foresters' Forest at may Archaeology Project. Naisip ko, "Mukhang kawili-wili, gagawin ko iyan!" Ito ay sa yugto ng pag-unlad ng Foresters' Forest noong 2015 at mula noon ay naging bahagi na ako. Nagkaroon ako ng ilang magagandang karanasan sa pamamagitan ng proyekto. Nagtrabaho ako sa survey ng data ng LIDAR, nakibahagi sa tatlong archaeological na paghuhukay at kamakailan ay nasangkot sa isang proyekto na nagsasaliksik sa Palmers Flat kung saan ako nakatira. Nasisiyahan ako sa pagsasaliksik na ito sa pakikipagtulungan sa isang kaibigan na nakatira sa malapit, at natutuklasan namin ang ilang kamangha-manghang impormasyon tungkol sa aming lokalidad. Nakagamit ako ng maraming iba't ibang pamamaraan tulad ng pagsasaliksik sa computer sa mga ninuno at pagtingin sa mga archive at mapa. Ang ilan sa pananaliksik na ito ay pamilyar na sa akin ngunit ang makita ang lahat ng ito ay magkakasama sa isang larawan ng nakaraan ay kawili-wili. Natagpuan ko ang pag-aaral na gawin ang LIDAR surveying na lubhang kapaki-pakinabang. Ito ay maaaring medyo mahirap, ngunit talagang binabago nito ang paraan ng pagtingin mo sa landscape magpakailanman. Nakikita ko na ngayon ang mga feature sa lahat ng dako na tumutulong sa akin na makilala ang mga maliliit na quarry, minahan at tramway na dating nakatuldok sa lahat ng dako. Ang paghahanap ng charcoal platform sa Birchhill ay kapana-panabik. Talagang napakarami sa kanila sa Kagubatan at nakikita ko ang sarili kong nakikita sila saan man ako magpunta. Ang mga paghuhukay ay napakasayang makibahagi. Ang pakikipagtulungan sa iba pang mga boluntaryo at mga eksperto ay nagturo sa akin nang labis. Napaka-espesyal ng pakiramdam na matuklasan ang mga bagay na matagal nang hindi nakikita ng mga mata ng tao. Ang isa pang boluntaryo at ako ay sapat na mapalad na makahanap ng isang piraso ng medyebal na palayok sa Yorkley Dig. Nakakagigil ang pakiramdam nang may nakita kaming kakaiba sa mundo. Pagkatapos ay nag-iwas at unti-unting isiwalat ang isang piraso ng nakaraan kasama ng mga taong sabik na naghihintay na makita kung ano ang aming nahanap – napakagandang karanasan! Ang pagboluntaryo sa proyekto ay puno ng mga positibo. Nakipagkaibigan ako, tulad ni Cathy na kasama ko sa research project at Elaine at David na kasama ko sa LIDAR project. Napakasarap sa pakiramdam na masangkot sa isang bagay na tungkol sa pangangalaga sa Forest of Dean at pagpapanatiling espesyal para sa mga susunod na henerasyon. Higit sa anupaman, ang pagsali sa isang archaeological dig ay isang bagay na gusto kong gawin mula pa noong mga araw ng aking unibersidad, at sa wakas, sa pamamagitan ng Foresters' Forest, napagtanto ko ang pangarap na iyon.
