History

FWA CHAIRMEN

The FWA was formed in 1947 but the Association’s early history and archive were destroyed in a

fire some years ago. Following research done since then, we have been able to reclaim some of our

lost history and if any member has any information which could help in the search to establish the

chairmen of the missing years please could they contact national committee member Mike Collett
