Clic Sargent fun day - 27th July


Clic Sargent is a children and young adults cancer support group. The fun day is not a fundraiser, but a day to give the kids, their families, siblings and carers a fantastic day out, and a flight in a light aircraft with our volunteer pilots!  In 2017 over 250 passengers were given the flight of their life…


Wings and Wheels - 25th August

2018 will be the nineteenth celebration of this event.  Classic cars, vintage & classic aircraft (subject to weather).  With luck we will see the Red Arrows Fly past at some point and also the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight.  No guarantees, but they’ve never let us down yet!  A great family day out.
