Free Church Heritage Roadshow

The Trust's recent Heritage Roadshow event on 5th April at the Free Church in WGC attracted around 75 visitors many of whom brought along material to add to the Trust's archive or signed up to be interviewed about their memories of working for one (or more!) of the early WGC industries.
