AFC Masters have recently gained some funding for a project on climate change. Part of that money is to be spent on a fanzine of AFC Masters and Horwich.  We really want as many of our members to be involved in putting the fanzine together. We already have some great articles sent in from last year which we are still hoping to use but we would like some more.  We really want someone who is good at drawing maps people can follow on a walk round town and also someone to help put together an I spy game for Horwich too. Could you help us? Read More →
