Dear Prefab Lovers,
2016 is coming to its end and has been a fantastic prefab year: after years of prefabs commitment, we were awarded last May a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund to pursue our moving prefab activities. Since, we organised nine events in and outside London, developed our prefab archive, released two issues of The Prefab Post, which latest issue – all about Birmingham prefabs! – is available to download here. http://www.prefabmuseum.uk/…/2016/06/Prefab-Post-Issue-3-we… We have a limited number of paper copies, if you would like one please email email@example.com
Our Facebook page and our mailing list keep on growing and so does the number of followers of our Twitter account! There have been more than 10,700 visitors to the new website since August, more than in the whole of the previous two years. We keep on discovering new prefabs locations, new information, documents and stories. It’s fascinating! As it’s time to have a bit of a festive break, we would like to thank everyone for their help and support this year, for their kindness in sharing their stories and making the Prefab Project such an enjoyable one to lead.
For those who already look forward to the new year, here are some prefab events already planned:
18th January A talk at the Gunmakers Arms, 93 Bath Street, Birmingham BH4 6HG 7pm
We are arranging events for 2017, dates to be confirmed. We will keep you updated!
April – Wake Green Road, Birmingham
July – Eden Camp Modern History Museum, Malton, North Yorkshire

We are looking forward to some exciting developments in 2017. To all of you, we wish a very happy festive season and a new prefabulous year 2017,
Jane and Elisabeth
