* The toilets will be available, entrance from the rear of the clubhouse, code C1234.
   * Solo/bubble visitors will      be able to fly in

 
Weekends:
   * The airfield will be      licensed.
   * IER team will provide      fire cover.
   * Ray will be in the tower      to provide a radio service.

Hi Flyers
March 29th is almost upon us ! Hurray
I thought I would keep you up to date. Despite the wet winter the runways have remained dry and usable . The need to carry out drainage work has lead to a problem with 06/24 the re-turfing of the trenches has now established and rolling is being carried out to level the ground. The runway should only be used
the pilots discretion and risk! hopefully it will soon be back to normal.
The moles have been enjoying the wet conditions but Daniel has managed to keep on top of the problem, The toilet hand basin is back in use please only use it for hand washing. Building maintenance has been carried out and the dyke to the east has been reinstated which has unfortunately meant the loss of the bushes growing in it. The Direction board and the windsock have not fared well over the winter and will have to be replaced otherwise things are looking good with some new machine arrivals and new students(potential new members) booking lessons. All we need now is for the weather to play ball, I expect there will initially
be a lot of circuits flown to refresh old skills so please taxi on the sides of the runways to keep the centre in good condition I have spent some time rolling the sides so they should be reasonably smooth. I would also remind field users to keep observing the Covid protocols to protect themselves and fellow flyers
Finally I/we are looking forward to seeing you fly again .
Roll on some sort of normality
Welcome back
Best wishes
Pete/ Mary R
