The Friends of Jaywick Martello Tower have been awarded £10,000 of Heritage Lottery Funding for its ‘Tides of Tendring’ project to investigate the area’s history of flooding and the growth and resilience of communities affected.
The Project aims to research the history of flooding in the area from Anglo Saxon times through to the modern day, which will include recording oral history of the evacuation of the town in December 2014 and February 2017 when the threat of flooding returned once again, and document how it has changed the landscape and the inhabitancies of both humans and wildlife and in turn raise awareness of the effect of flooding through participatory events, an exhibition and online resources. The project will create a sense of awareness for local people and acknowledge the remarkable resilience of a unique area.
The work will entail:
Managing and encouraging volunteers in their work
