Share your river memories

WIMBORNE Community Theatre is planning a site-specific community theatre production in 2021 performed in, on or near the River Allen (one of the purest chalk streams in Europe) or the River Stour, which both flow through Wimborne.

To launch the project WCT is inviting people to share their memories of visiting the river with people from around the world on World Rivers Day, in late September.  

Gill Horitz, of WCT, says they will welcome stories from people of all ages, as well as family stories. Topics could be special memories of being by the river, special places, and the way you feel about the river. 

Send your rivery thoughts and memories to by Friday 11th September. You can email your stories or memories or record yourself on a mobile phone, or even film yourself at the actual location.
