Volunteer is needed to be our Social Media Co-ordinator (4 March 2021)

Kirsty Gray set up our Facebook and Twitter pages in November 2015, and has used her staff at Family Wise Ltd to host these web pages, but now she needs to handover to fresh hands. We are looking to find a new volunteer to run these pages for us. We can provide handover guidance to anyone who will step forward to join the WMFHS support team. If you can help at all, please make contact with any member of the Committee. Our thanks to Kirsty and her staff for all the work put in to setting up and running these pages for us.

A collection of old West Middlesex postcards received today (16 January 2021)

This morning brought a most pleasant surprise. I (Roland Bostock) received a package which contained about 200 old postcards, mostly of churches in our area, passed on from an anonymous sender. I use this notice board to say a huge 'Thanks' to this sender on behalf of the Society. They will likely find a home in our Archives.
