We are particularly keen to hear from Govanites or those who have connections with the area, but all are welcome.
Volunteers assist with visitors and help with research, cataloguing, digitising images and promoting Fairfield through events and outreach.
If you would like to join us please e-mail our Fairfield Co-ordinator : amorris@govanworkspace.co.uk,  telephone: 0141 445 5866, or drop in.
