Getting ready for the 2018 season

If I thought last week was cold it was nothing compared to yesterday. The thermometer on the car said 2 degrees, but with the easterly wind chill factor it must have been around minus 10 degrees.

However, we all battled on as it's only a few weeks until the 2018 season begins. All the painting is nearing completion, items have been cleaned and repaired where necessary and displays are beginning to be put back together.

The entrance gates have had a new lick of paint and are now bright red. You really can't miss them now.

The days that we are open are coloured in green on the calendar shown below, (please click on the calendar to enlarge it) and the hours are 10 a.m to 5 p.m. The last entrance time is 4.15 p.m, but that really doesn't give you enough time to do the museum justice. You really need a minimum of 2 - 3 hours, but a whole morning or afternoon is best.

We have our "NAAFI" on site where you can get teas, coffees, cold drinks, crisps and biscuits. You make your own drinks and put the 50p per item in the honesty box. There is seating in there with various information about WWII, and a video all about the Lancaster bomber. We have a picnic area where you can sit outside and enjoy your lunch, we have absolutely no objection to you bringing your own packed lunch to eat. There is also a children's play area with a fort for them to climb over.

We are totally dog friendly and well behaved dogs are allowed in to all the buildings. Please clean up any mess that they make.

Hope that you can get to visit with us this year. Remember to book in advance for the bus tour of the airfield every Thursday afternoon throughout July, August and September.

Details of special days will appear on this blog when details are finalised. At the moment we are working with R.A.F St Mawgan for a special afternoon on Sunday the 8th of April to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the R.A.F. Put the date in your diary and pray that the weather is kind to us.

Keep looking at this blog for all the normal kind of posts and photos of what's going on behind the scenes.


Steve with the new red gates.
