As part of this project, a new radio play is being created by Northumberland writer Rachel Cochrane, which focuses on the building of Catcleugh Reservoir and the lives of the workers and their families, together with telling other local stories. As part of this project, local people are being encouraged to share their memories, stories and artefacts to feed into the narrative. There will be creative writing workshops with local schools, with pupils being encouraged to produce their own creative writing contributions for the project.
There will also be opportunities for school children, volunteers and students to take part in the production of the radio play, which will be performed in front of a life audience in community venues and will also be available online.
