Tell Them Your Salmon Fishing Story

A new project by Newcastle University has recently started to engage residents of Berwick in a process of recording their untold stories and multi-sensory knowledge of salmon fishing on the Tweed (past, present and future) through a series of 'pop-up' events including Poetry Booth™ use for several days at the Town Hall and Watchtower Gallery in July/August.  

•Do you have fishing family connections or stories that you would like to share?
•Do you feel inspired when you see pictures of net and coble fishing? If so, how?
•What is it about the fishing heritage and river landscape that you cherish most?
•What are the qualities that distinguish Berwick salmon?

A selection of stories and artefacts representing ‘lost fishing futures’ will be included in a souvenir publication.

They would like you to share your experience with their community-based project at their first event on
Wednesday 10 June, 6 –8pm at The Pilot Pub Function Room,
31 Low Green, Berwick upon Tweed, TD15 1LZ.

If that's not convenient, please phone Helen Jarvis on 0191 208 6959 or email her at
