The Fovant History Interest would like to continue up dating knowledge of the history so please join us and add your Knowledge.
The group will continue to add to Margaret McKenzie’s library that will be available through FHIG and the Village Hall where some the artefacts she collected will be on display.
- To carry out further research on the history of Fovant using local libraries, archives & museums
- To create a ‘living history’ archive by interviewing and tape recording the older residents of Fovant and recording their collections of documents, images and artefacts.
- To reinstate and curate a museum of artefacts from the First World War memorabilia bequeathed to FHIG in a fitting space for the benefit of the village and historians.
- To catalogue the historical records and images of Fovant and make them available to anyone wishing to access them via the website and other publications.
- To interest the residents of Fovant in the history of their village by organising, taking part in, or contributing to events.
The Group are planning an Exhibition in the village similar to one put on in 2014
Help will be needed
