  • Hi
    We would like to join the f.of.E however we don’t have word on or laptop, would it be possible to send the details by email and pay by paypal?

    Also we are up with you at Easter and was wondering if you had any events planned especially if aimed at children as our son is into his Romans and South tynedale.



  • Hi

    Would it be possible to send details by email and pay by paypal as we don’t have word on our computer.

    Also do you have any events over Easter especially if aimed at children as our son is into his romans and loves the South Tynedale

  • Hi Adrian

    I am just in a wordpress training session, and seeing this comment for the first time!! So apologies for the late reply. I will ask Judith to get in touch and send the relevant form – or you could just pay via the paypal link on the “get involved” page as this will generate a notification to Judith and she can get in touch that way. Hope that helps – Elaine
    or email
