Friends of Old Fairfield

The mission statement for Friends of Old Fairfield (FOOF), which was written in the early 1990s, encapsulates the early aspirations and continuing focus of FOOF for Fairfield:

"To administer the Fairfield Reserve in order to retain and enhance its unique character, linking the past with the present and future community growth".

Community involvement in Fairfield has enabled the restoration and development to date. FOOF manages this community resource on a self-funding basis. We rely on events income, voluntary work, membership subscriptions, donations and grants to upkeep this unique historic house and heritage woodland.

We are officially registered with the Charities Commission. Our official registration number is CC41609.

You will find below information about how you can become a FOOF member, renew your current membership or make a donation. If you are interested in doing voluntary work with us, please contact us.
