BOOK: CELIA CRAIG - "A TRIBUTE TO THE WOMEN OF GOURDON"
"Without the vital and skilled work of the women of Gourdon, line fishing could not have operated." That's the crystallised message of Celia Craig's book inspired by her long-standing passion for celebrating the history of Gourdon through collated interviews, photographs and poetry.
Celia, who comes from a fishing family, focuses on the areas of baiting, sheeling, working in the fish houses, barrelling herring, and officiating at the Lifeboat Galas - where the women of the village have long played a central role. Featuring a strong photographic element and accompanying detailed social commentary, the tribute fondly narrates the stories of a collection of hard-working women, and their extraordinary everyday lives.
Paperback, 108 pages.
A choice of two striking designs to remind you of your trip to Gourdon and the museum every time you're doing the washing up.

DVD: "THE GOURDON SCHOOL MAGGIE LAW PROJECT"
This short film presents the fruits of a wonderful collaboration between the children and teachers at Gourdon Primary School and the Maggie Law Maritime Museum. Together teachers and volunteers running the Museum designed a project to enable children to research the local culture of the ancient fishing village of Gourdon. Many exciting connections were made as children asked community elders and local people for their stories, recollections and knowledge of boats, bait, buildings and much more.
