Getting back to Meetings and other activities

To our members:  Unfortunately the Covid restrictions mean that we cannot hold the long-delayed presentation on ‘RAF Tangmere and the Tangmere Museum’ by Sqn Ldr Joe Marsden on Friday 2 July.  We have re-arranged this for 3 September the 82nd anniversary of the out break of WW 2.

Meanwhile we have our 6  August meeting on  ‘Sussex Castles’, with John Bleach,
