In 2003/04, Magic Torch undertook a large scale community survey into local attitudes to and opportunities for local heritage in Inverclyde. The report informed the development of many of our own projects.

Ten years later, it is interesting to see how many of the discussions and challenges remain the same...

Please note, this version has some bitmapping of images and tables due to old PDF formatting issues, however the text is readable throughout.

produced by Magic Torch
 
In a time when Inverclyde faces so many difficulties, it is very easy to understand why heritage is not at the top of anyone’s agenda. Why should we worry about history when here and now, jobs are being lost? Who cares about industrial landmarks when we see our maternity unit closing? If we are going to be restoring anything, shouldn’t it be our schools?These problems, this gradual erosion of our entire community must be fought, on all fronts; as a group Magic Torch have come to believe that promotion of our heritage is one very positive way of doing just that. Our heritage can reconnect us to our community, give us a sense of place, of pride. It’s what we have left of who we are, where we’ve come from. And it’s the last thing we’ll lose.This report investigates local attitudes to heritage, revealing not only local support for future developments, but also underlining the strong sense of history and community already present within Inverclyde. Outlined, are a number of ideas for future development. We hope it will not be too long before we see some of them in action.Magic Torch would like to thank those who have made this project possible, most particularly Christopher Burrows who prepared and wrote the report. He was active in all aspects of the project; planning, preparation of questionnaires, encouraging groups to return them, collating the data and raising the profile of local heritage at every given opportunity.We would also like to thank all those groups and individuals who took the time and trouble to complete their questionnaires or attend our open forum meetings – yours is the most vital contribution of all.Finally we would like to acknowledge the support of SCVO’s Direct Grants programme, which funded the entire survey project.
