Branscombe Project to tell Napoli story
The Branscombe Project in East Devon was set up make an oral record of history in the village. It was back in January this year that the lives of the residents of Branscombe were turned upside down by the unexpected arrival of MSC Napoli off their shoreline. The subsequent events have proved to be so momentous that the villagers decided to include them as part of the Branscombe Project. To that end I'm pleased to say that they have been awarded £2680 in lottery funding to record the views and experiences of the local people affected.
