FOREST TALK
By Keith Morgan
Coleford Barber, Keith, has turned the dialect of the Forest of Dean into an art form. Many of the customers, who visit his old fashioned shop in the town centre, speak using old Forest phrases and words - as does Keith. As a result Keith has taken the stories and the dialect and turned them into material for when he gives talks and performs his 'stand-up' routines.
