We would like to thank the many volunteers that helped us to build the Centenary Poppy. They included serving soldiers, archaeology undergraduates and their lecturers, many people, of all ages, from Fovant and surrounding villages and from other charities.

Ongoing Maintenance

We are always looking for volunteers to continue our work in maintaining the badges. If you are interested, perhaps you would be kind enough to email us at fbs.sec@outlook.com or complete the form below to register your interest.

The comments relating to the Centenary Badge on the form apply to all the other badges on Fovant Down. The reference to “early July until mid August” does not apply to ongoing maintenance. We will arrange for occasional working parties throughout the year.
