The Fair Green History Group…
…is a loosely constituted organisation formed by a small number of Fair Green residents in 2007 to locate and collect information and artefacts relating to the history of Fair Green, Diss and its environs and to share them with the residents of Fair Green and other interested people.
To date we have collected some memories of residents, researched census returns and located a number of historic maps and photographs of the Green.
In the past we have arranged for small displays of items relating to the history of the Green to be on view at open air events on Fair Green. We also displayed an exhibition in 2009, again on the history of Fair Green and its fairs, in Diss Museum.
We are actively seeking any memories of people who live or have lived on The Green, artefacts and any old newspaper cuttings relating to Fair Green. Is there anyone willing to speak to residents about their personal history so we can put it on to a computer? Also, is there anyone out there who has first hand (or even second hand) knowledge of the “elephant” buried on Fair Green?
We are happy to welcome new members to our Group who meet about every six weeks
Please contact Suzanne Kayne on 01379 641388 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you can help or wish to be involved with any of the above.
