My Undergraduate Dissertation

Print
 Are you able to help Chris with his dissertation research?
 
Dear Sir or Madam.
 
I wish to introduce myself to the Borth Community Council & Borth Community.
 
I am a mature student (47 years old) and have had a deep interest in the village of Borth from an early age. I have spent many happy holidays as a child myself and later in life as a parent frequently booking my own family holidays in Borth.  My children now grown up also now enjoy Borth as a favoured destination for holidays and day trips.
 
After a long career doing many and varied menial jobs. I decided to challenge myself and withdraw from of the rat race and undertake a degree with a view to becoming a Geography teacher by the time I am 50. I study Geography at Staffordshire University and I am in the second year of my 3-year course.
 
The time has come for us to start to consider our dissertation topics and I would like to investigate Borth, its people and the tourism aspect of the town with particular interest in the influence of the fossilised forest. Over many decades now I have walked on the lovely beach between Borth and Ynyslas always fascinated by the fossilised structures on the beach.
 
During my pre-dissertation research, I have really not been able to locate much in the way of study materials or little more than general information on the forest and its impact on the village. This is why I'm writing to you. Hoping to engage the council and residents and to begin a dialog between the residents and myself to aid my project and take account of the local community’s opinions.
 
I would be interested to know if you would welcome any further contact and if your members would be interested in helping to shape my dissertation with reverence to the human and physical geography of Borth.
 
Yours Sincerely

RNLI Borth

New lifeboat officially named

14th May 2014 By kind Permission Cambrian News

BORTH RNLI rescue boat the D class-760 “Geoffrey Scott” was officially named at a service of dedication on Saturday 10th May 2014.

The lifeboat was funded after late RNLI admirer Geoffrey Scott, who lived in the Cheltenham area and died in May 2010, aged 82, left the charity £80,000 in his will.

The bequest covered the £40,000 cost of the boat and its maintenance costs for the next 10 years. And Mr Scott’s daughter, Kathryn Smith, “handed over” the lifeboat at a special ceremony at Borth lifeboat station.

Borth lifeboat station manager Ron Davies said: “Mr Scott, although not a seafaring man, admired the selfless dedication of lifeboat crews, and he made this wonderful bequest as a result. His legacy is very much appreciated. “The service was conducted by the Rev Cecilia Charles, and Rev Stuart Bell.”
