Casting the Net Project

Casting the Net is an oral history project developed by Clyde Fishermen’s Association and the Scottish Fisheries Museum and funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, which over the last year has been capturing the memories and experiences of the Ring-Net herring fishermen and their families from around the Firth of Clyde and West Coast of Scotland.

Next Wednesday and Thursday the ‘Casting the Net’ Bus will be visiting Holmston and the P4, 5 and 6 will have the opportunity of visiting the bus and taking part in workshops. The organisers will be keeping the bus open for members of the community to drop in to find out more about the project from 3.00pm until 4.30pm on Wednesday 14th November.
