DETAILS

COMMITTEE MEETING

This meeting will take place in the Air Space of the museum at 1100. Committee members are asked to gather at the main entrance by 1030.

Non-committee members are most welcome to attend as observers.

ARRIVAL AND ENTRY

Since there is a reduced entry price for groups of 10 or more, Branch members are invited to gather at the main entrance at 1230 and then enter the museum as a group. Note – this is merely a recommendation as the savings are not significant. Entry prices are as follows:

Adult £15.90 Group rate £13.20
Senior £12.70 Group rate £11.55

LUNCH

Members are invited to gather in the Mess Restaurant at 1300 for lunch. This will be completely informal and on a pay-as-you go basis

MUSEUM VISIT

The museum is very large with a good variety of displays. It is anticipated that at least 3.5 hours will be required to do it justice. There will be no organised tour and members will be invited to make their own way around the site immediately after lunch.

EVENING BBQ IN HOUGHTON CONQUEST

Sue and Pete Derrick have once again kindly offered to host a BBQ at their home in Houghton Conquest near Bedford. This is about a fifty minute drive from Duxford.

There will be a limit of 25 places at the BBQ due to space constraints. To book a place payment of £20.00 per head is required by 1 June . Cheques should be made payable to P Derrick

If you wish to attend please contact Pete Derrick at yservicesrbl@btinternet.com to get the postal address to which cheques should be sent.

Any profit from the BBQ will be donated to the Poppy Appeal.

Note:

There are several Hotels available in or near Houghton Conquest, please contact the Chairman for further details.
