The New Group and the Existing COWH Facebook Group

A Capturing Our Wayland Heritage facebook group http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=10150099192585096&v=wall was set-up by me in my former role as Project Heritage Officer in March 2010 as part of the project.  Anyone of the former project Focus Group is free to join the group, and be made an officer and or admin for the site, one other and myself are already members. 

The future organisation of the group will be the subject of a meeting of the former Focus Group members, the date and venue for this first meeting will be sent out by Jan and Bron. At our last Focus Group meeting several of us talked about having an open group page for the new group, so we can share information in an open forum, so new people could become involved, this existing facebook group can just be a stop gap to fill that need until the next meeting, when if the members request it this group page will be closed that night, or continue in use for the use of the new group, what ever you all decide on the night. 

Best wishes to you all for a very happy New Year. Sue

The Blenheim Road Show coming to Watton on 19th Jan

Group member Julian Horn has passed on the info about this forthcoming event 'This should be a cracker of a talk, Smudge has rebuilt the Blenheim 3 times and was on board in the Air Gunner’s position during its first crash many years ago.' It sounds an event not to be missed.
