Resurgence teams up with Beaford for Hidden Histories project
The renovations and improvements on the new Resurgence Centre at the former Small School are nearing completion and we will be moving into our new offices within the next couple of months. It will be a busy time for us.
We are already working on our programme and on broadening our outreach. We will be having an open day once we are settled in, when anyone interested can come and see us and what we have been up to! As part of our programme, we will be working with Beaford community arts. We are hosting our first event in Hartland on 27th April, when Bristol-based trio the Boogaloo String Band will be playing their stomping mix of Americana and old-time tunes.
In the Autumn, we will also be hosting an Hidden Histories project alongside Beaford, based around the photographic archive of James Ravilious and Roger Deakins. We plan to host an exhibition of photographs spanning 100 years of the life and times of Hartland Parish. We will also be running events where people can share old photographs and stories about life in Hartland.
There is more information about the project and the eight parishes in North Devon that are taking part on the Beaford website and we will be sharing more information nearer the time.

Meanwhile, we are looking forward to getting settled in our new premises and to developing the programme of events. We have already planned three weekend courses in collaboration with the Koa Tree on Natural Beekeeping, Herbalism and Wild Herbs, and Sustainable Woodland Management.
