We have come to the end the end of our project.  Our catalogue and indices are being finalised  so you will be able to identify what material can be viewed. Over 700 photos have been hard copied and are being sorted and boxed up.  A collection of Fixture Cards has been collated. Club minutes dating back to the 1920's have been placed in chronological order and  filed. Similarly 30 years of correspondence have been  filed. Press cuttings have being tided up and with the acquisition of a new A3 printer  we have started to capture then to a digital form on the PC.. The bases of a mobile display unit has been purchased. Leaflets have been published explaining our heritage project, along with a more fuller detailed brochure. A provisional date has been arranged with the Mildenhall Museum to house the mobile display. The Heritage Lottery Fund has agreed  a change that will now allow us to create a vinyl display of the Wamil Way milestones along the upstairs corridor wall
