Firstly what have we over the next few months?

Sunday 8th December

Departures Memorial Service
All are very welcome. The ceremony will feature a wreath laying by the Museum
volunteers and external groups who support us, followed by a talk on the airfields past and light bullet lunch.

Secondly, we have a maintenance program for both internal and external (subject to the weather) projects. We would greatly appreciate any practical, help if you are able. There are always small (and larger) jobs to do – from cataloging, stocktaking, to repairs and refurbishments. All assistance is a fantastic help to maintain the high standard of the museum and protect its future.

And Finally – Our Winter Appeal. To continue the successful expansion of the Museum we are always looking for relevant material. USAAF information, documentation, memorabilia, B-17 photographs, records (logs etc.), – either on a loan or donation basis. Please see if your past family relations, with any links to the airfield, have items that can improve our knowledge of the airfields (and the towns) history. We are also always looking for items that have RAF and WD (War Department) relevance.

We continue our appeal for model cars, aircraft, military vehicle, aviation books, model kits – anything aviation and more, that we can sell from our “Green Tent’ at next years local fates and shows. Please contact us and (subject to distance) we will arrange delivery to the museum or collection.

So that’s it for this month. Please join us for the events as planned, especially the Remembrance Service. We Will Never Forget.

See you next month, take care.
