FACE is Fifteen!
Tuesday, 19 July 2016 09:55

FACEIn 2016 FACE has reached its fifteenth birthday.

To celebrate our many successes over the time since our inception in 2001, we have created a timeline which we'd love to share with you.  It highlights some of the significant occasions we have witnessed and many of the activities we have carried out.

If you are a long-standing member of FACE, please indulge in some reminiscence therapy by taking a look.  If you are new to FACE, please view the timeline to find out about our past achievements. Together we plan to continue and improve on past experience to ensure children and their teachers are better engaged with food, farming and the countryside.

Happy Birthday FACE!
