Happy Valentines Day to all the Slough Fort supporters out there!
As always, the Trustees and Volunteers of the Slough Fort Preservation Trust have been as busy as ever, and we can’t wait to tell you what we’ve been up to!
Slough Fort are now the proud owners of some rather rare anti-tank cylinders, found nearby in the village of Wainscott. With thanks to Ross Crayford, Chris Saunders and many others, these priceless artefacts of the Second World War can now be proudly displayed at Slough Fort next to our Tett Turret at the Main Gate. Want to come along and take a look at the brand-new guard position at the Slough Fort entrance? Why not come down on one of our Guided Tours, or pop along to one of our Open Days? To find out more, please head over to the relevant pages on our website.
In other news, we have had a change of leadership within the Slough Fort Preservation Trust. Keith Gulvin, the outgoing Chair of the Trust, is to be taken over from by Colin Davis. Keith first visited Slough Fort back in 1976 as a member of the Medway Military Research Group, and has been involved in the restoration of the site since 2013 – that’s nine years at Slough Fort! We are happy to announce that Keith will be staying on with the Trust in his new role as Vice Chair. The Slough Fort Preservation Trust would like to thank Keith for all his work, and wish Colin the best of luck as the incoming Chair.
That’s all from us for now, but would you like to learn more about the goings-on at Slough Fort? Head on over to the Slough Fort Facebook page, or take a read of one of our newsletters here on our website.
