TWO Amber Valley artists have finished their tour of Derbyshire – and now they are planning to share the stories they have gathered.
Sally Newham and Sally Lemsford from South Normanton and Codnor Park respectively were awarded a £1,000 grant from Derbyshire County Council to tour the area on bikes and gather a host of quirky personal stories from locales to place in a mobile museum.
Now the artists plan to use the website Geochache to spread the stories. Geocache users literally bury item-filled capsules and post its co-ordinates online for other discoverers to find.
The two Sallys will place the stories in tins and hide them around the county as a sort of treasure hunt for people to find.
“It’s a novel way to share these stories and keep them alive,” said Sally Lemsford, who hailed the pair’s county tour a huge success.
