2018 Gold: Short stories and poems
This collection is the 2018 contribution by primary and secondary students from schools in East Devon to the on-going Heroes of the Jurassic Coast annual series of work.
The short stories and poems included in this collection have all been prepared by students from local primary and secondary schools. They reflect the theme ‘GOLD’ which was chosen by the ‘Budding Creativity’ arts project for young people (under the auspices of The Arts Society Budleigh Salterton) in celebration of the national society’s 2018 golden anniversary.
Books are available now. Murals and poetry walk route along the seafront at Budleigh Salterton open to all-comers from July to October 2018
Financial help towards the costs of design and printing of this book, the poetry panels and mural art expenditure has been given by Devon County Council, Budleigh Salterton Town Council, The Norman Family Charitable Trust, the Arts Society and the Arts Society Budleigh Salterton.
The Song for the Golden Lion Tamarin

Budding Creativity is a complex project whose success depends on a wide range of support from individual volunteers, professionals, and from organisations.
The core project team comprises
Sue Briggs, Margaret Webb, Howard Barrow, Liz Cummings, Anthony Bussy, Alan Dean and Chris Davis with Tim Hall acting as overall coordinator.
Vital professional input has come from Trudie Burne of Bright Blue C, Brightsea Print Group and Ross Dunbar of Optima Graphics.
Pride of place in the acknowledgements should go to the schools that chose to participate: considerable praise is due to the head teachers, heads of department and individual teachers for their efforts in encouraging pupils to create material on top of the heavy workload required to follow the normal curriculum, and, of course, to the pupils themselves without whom there would be nothing to publish!
