Well, here it is…the first post for the brand new Fotheringhay and District Richard III Society group.  There’s lots going on in preparation for the official announcement of the group’s formation….meetings, social media pages, newsletters, blogs… Plenty to keep me and (hopefully) others pleasantly busy.

Right now the very first newsletter is being drafted and the Facebook group page has been set up.  There are meetings planned for collaborative initiatives with other groups associated with the Fortheringhay area and a calendar of events is being planned.  Contacts with councils and other organisations are being followed up to take part in local history and heritage events.

All Society members are welcome to join the group and those considering membership can contact me at

Here’s to an exciting future together!
