August 7th UPDATE. Funds required to complete the reassembly and restoration of XR713
August 7th UPDATE. XR713 is 95% reassembled, after a full week assisted by BAe apprentices and our Members. Thank you to all of you that have donated to enable us to achieve this. Due to lack of available dates we will not be able to have a donors day, but she will be on display at the Cold War jets Day on 30th August, and will be posed inside and outside the RAF Wattisham Q-Shed at the Twilight Run on Saturday 7th November. We plan to complete the reassembly as soon as possible, and funds are still urgently required to finish the project. Please donate what you can above. Or send cheques payable to LPG to: Chris Norris, 12 Newark Rd, Coddington, Newark, Notts. NG24 2QF.
RAF Wattisham Q-SHED - Rebuild complete but funds still needed
They protected you now you protect them!
The re-erection of the RAF Wattisham QRA Shed is 100% complete thanks to the generosity of our supporters. All our donor’s names are recorded on our Contributors Board in the hangar. However the building still has to be fitted out with storyboards telling the Cold War and Lightning histories. Added to this we have ongoing challenge to keep both Lightnings in fully functional condition. We have therefore decided to invite existing contributors to top up their donation at any time and at the same time invite new donors to the scheme whereby we will commission an new name, to be permanently displayed in the hangar, for a minimum of a £50 donation. You will be in good company as the likes of Wg Cdr Roland “Bee” Beamont are recorded. The specified name can be of your choice and we have a number of names “In memory of” which is a fitting way to remember a loved one or colleague. If you have the time, then please attend one of the Open Days. If you wish to make a donation, any amount, large or small is most welcome. If you wish to pay by cheque please make payment to “LPG” enclosing a SAE and send to: Richard Norris, 2 Spring Hill, Little Staughton, Beds, MK44 2BS (tel: 01234 378827). An SAE would be appreciated.
