It has been my ambition for about a year to establish a network of groups and individuals in Northern Ireland to gather stories about the places they live and the people they know.

The first version of that emerged about five years ago under the name Sense of Place, which for very good reasons morphed into Your Place and Mine.  It has been doing great work since it was establishes and developed a brand relationship with the Radio Ulster programme of the same name.

Today we took another small but positive steo forward to that goal. We are beginning a pilot of the Story Finders project in north Antrim within weeks.  More info when the site is launched.
