  • Patch News – April 2021
    After so many months of little or no flying due to various lockdowns we were able to fly for a full month in April. I think it’s fair to say that we made the most of the decent weather and lots of members flew, some for the first time in many months. Fortunately the bullocks ...

    Here we are at the start of March having had zero flying in February.

Still no club meetings for the foreseeable ...

    STOP PRESS: A new lockdown has just been announced, I think that will mean no flying after 4th Nov for a month. October has come and gone, the clocks have gone back and winter has blown in. The patch has been mown a couple of times and part of it was rolled to flatten out the ...
