Have you seen the new FoGA website yet?
You can find it at:
The old site will be running in parallel for the next year or so but all the latest information about the Friends can now be found on the new site. It is designed so that it looks as good on a mobile phone as it does on a computer.
The website also has links to our new Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts. Do check them out if you subscribe to one of those forms of social media. They contain lots of interesting photos and information. We are very grateful to Archive staff Ally McConnell and Rhianna Watson for setting up our social media accounts and for regularly keeping them updated with fascinating material.
