Friends of Newport Transporter Bridge (FONTB) is a registered Charity (Registered Charity No. 1102925) founded in 1998 and dedicated to the promotion and preservation of the Bridge.
Our activities include running the Visitor Centre, publishing a regular Newsletter for members, organising visits to the Bridge for clubs, schools and other groups and giving presentations about the Bridge. We also maintain an archive and this website.
We welcome volunteers who can spare some time to man the Visitor Centre for half a day a week (more if you like!) or offer help in other ways. Please contact our Chairman David Hando by email for an informal chat.
Even if you don’t have time to volunteer, you can show your support by becoming a Friend.
