Like you, I am passionate to make sure that all the information on FMD is available for anyone to access and check data. And all in one place. There won't be any excuse for people to not be able to check on information like2001 proved with 1967 material.Thanks so much.  The Royal Agriculture Society of England, have officially accepted all the Foot and Mouth Disease information, documents,   research, photographs tapes and videos that I have collected and given to  them on behalf of us all.
The official announcement will go out in the Royal Society bulletins as well as in Farming journals. All sides of the incidents of FMD are represented from Maff to AntiMaff  approaches, and all are well documented. This now an official and permanent archive, with plenty of room for additional material.
All the FMD material in its hundreds has been handed over to Royal Agricultural Society at Stoneleigh. Boy! were they amazed at the generosity of people,and they were so grateful that a permanent archive resides there. It always amazes me when they say"what  a good idea", and they are the people with brains.

 The material will be available as an archive for people to be able to access material on FMD all in one place. In that way it is educational, and not checked out of Stoneleigh. There is a librarian there on hand for help with the computer if necessary.

Thank you all for the assistance you gave me in collecting all the hundreds of documents. Remember there are still more out there. If you know anyone who would be willing to place them in the archive,for research and also as a fountain of knowledge.(We won't get caught out again!) my e.mail address is at the top of the page. I can always be found also on phone (01594-810321)Thanks for your kind letter, it is because of you and others that ran websites, that there is so much to archive.

Thanks and make sure you give yourself breaks every once and a while.   All in the Forest Action Group send their regards
