We had a good turn out on scale day 15 scale models and sports models also, rain in the morning but cleared up around 2pm. No photos because I forgot my camera, must do better next time. We have plenty of members going down every week and having a good time. I go at least twice a week as its a 26 mile round trip. Will post pictures of our regular meetings so everyone knows what’s going on.
Our next Scale day is August 19th same as last time fly what you want but if you have a scale model bring it down. If you are making a scale model and it’s not finished bring it down also so we can have a look at what you are making. Mike Gowland
I would just like to say thank you to all who could make it yesterday for the opening of the new hut and the scale fly in. We had lots of scale models’ sport and vintage also’ the weather was great and plenty of barbeques going. Pictures to follow from Glyn. I loved the vintage model of John Jacksons pure class on a warm summer afternoon. M.G
Sunday the 24th. June Is our official opening of our new club Cabin’ we shall also be running our first scale fly in of 2018. I thought it would be a good idea as this year is the centenary of the Royal Air Force to get as many models as possible of aircraft used by the RAF WW1 WW2 plus all the years between and since. I think that would be our tribute to all the brave people who have served in the Air Force . It goes without saying all scale models will be very welcome and of course if you don’t have a scale model fly whatever you want on the day. The more members that turn up on the day the better.

All, The new Log Cabin arrived on Tues and is now built and ‘painted’.
Thanks to all the members who put so much time and effort into assembling it, it was a good humoured and enjoyable exercise. Two additional ‘guest’ members contributed a large amount of that effort too – Dave’s partner Yelena and Colins wife Berit – special thanks to them.
Thanks also to Charles who is putting a floor covering in prior to us re stocking it.
A plaque is to be fitted recognising Alan Brobbins generous contribution which allowed us to purchase it (details TBA)
