July 18th 2013: FOGA visit to Fairford


On a very hot July day Edwin Cuss and Syd Flatman gave thirteen members of the Friends of Gloucestershire Archives (who braved the heat, the pre-airshow bustle and aircraft noise) a very interesting historical tour of the town. A post visit quote was “Lovely to be shown around an area by locals who know all the hidden gems.” Two of the members who had been on a town walk on a previous occasion had a tour of St Mary’s Church by Geoff Hawkes, they were delighted to be shown round by the expert. All the members then had a tea provided by the Society in the Heritage Room.

FoGA was established in 1993 to provide help and support to the Gloucestershire Archives (then called Gloucestershire Record Office) and to educate people in the importance of preserving the county’s archives. See www.foga.org.uk for more information)
