Have a look at
the Archives' blog

We hope you find something of interest here: there are illustrations of the ways in which the Friends help and support Gloucestershire Archives and examples of what we offer to members.

We organise outings and lectures, seminars & other events and an annual social evening. If you are already a member (Thank you!), we hope you find interest and enjoyment in your membership; if you are not a member, we hope you will join and support us - you'll find details here.

Guided by the Archives, we buy interesting items that enhance the Archive and which come up for sale from time to time, as well as useful equipment for public use in the search room. We fund small projects on our own - but one of our most important roles is to provide the match-funding to enable Gloucestershire Archives to apply for grants from national funding bodies.

This year we are leading the fundraising in support of a bid to the Heritage Lottery Fund for a significant project grant. The aim is to further develop the Archives' collaborative approach to gathering, keeping and sharing the documented and digital heritage of local communities in Gloucestershire and South Gloucestershire - to ensure that this rich heritage is as accessible as possible, both now and into the future.

For more details on the project and how you can help, please see For The Record.
