As a result, a cheese and wine evening (right) was organised to form the first ever Fairford History Society and to make plans for
initiating a Fairford Archive.
Over 50 members were signed up at their first meeting held in Fairford Community Centre in June. Cllr Trevor Hing said at
the meeting that the people of Fairford should note the day
18th June 2004 – as it was an important day in Fairford’s history
and, in 25 years time, people will look back and be thankful
that the History Society had been formed and important historical artefacts and first hand knowledge of events had been
recorded for all time.
