Last Year’s 40th Anniversary celebration saw the launch of a BFoE Heritage Project in association with the Heritage Lottery Fund. As the project moves towards completion we are issuing this appeal.
While most of us have been focussed on the exciting transformation of our warehouse home, a small band of volunteers have been working on the heritage project. They have been labouring in the archive at Birmingham Central Library, digging out information on the history of the past 40 years.
Newsletters, minutes and photographs have been found covering the purchase of warehouse and the work of volunteers which made a derelict building usable. We have found information about the first green businesses which ran from the building, the many successful campaigns and much more.
However, we need more material to display as part of The Warehouse relaunch and to add to the archive. Do you have any memorabilia, photographs or artefacts at home? If so would you consider a donation to add to the permanent record of Birmingham Friends of the Earth?
For any donations of memorabilia please contact – firstname.lastname@example.org
