Tuesday 13th April 2013 saw the launch of the new FOMA Collection with the presentation of some 52 historic documents relating to the Medway area by the Friends of Medway Archives and Local Studies (FOMA).

The presentation was made by the FOMA Committee and Chairman, Tessa Towner, to Medway Archivist, Alison Cable at the Friends’ AGM in Frindsbury Parish Hall. The documents, which were bought at auction, include historic deeds and indentures from the seventeenth, eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, many of which relate to the Hulkes family.

Tessa Towner commented, “The Friends are delighted to make this presentation and to formally launch what will be known as The FOMA Collection. We hope this will be the first of many donations we will be able to make as supporters of the Medway Archives and Local Studies Centre.”
