Gower Unearthed have HLF to develop an art project highlighting local poet Vernon Watkins. To extend the legacy we would like to develop a community supported venture gathering annicdotes stories and local knowledge regarding an overlooked talent. This could feed into an educational resource also and slot into the national curriculum There will also be an annual walk and discussion event from Three cliffs coffee shop and Jamie would provide the hub and information. This would be a wonderful engagement project that could branch out over the years creating a stage to present Vernons poetry to a greater audience . I have communicated this wish to his wife Gwen who has previously given us her blessing. I have also written to the ex Archbishop Rowan Williams who wants to highlight Vernons great works within the same context.
