Following on from the Government’s directive published today, Friday 20th March, we have closed the cafe side of the airfield business. We are currently unable to offer take away services, although we are looking at how we could safely safely manage this in the coming days, and we will update you on our decision. Safety of our customers and staff is of course at the forefront of any decision. We are running limited flight operations but will not be open to anyone other than flying club members and visiting pilots on the airfield side.
Don’t forget that you can help support our small family business and in turn all our employees, by purchasing flight and cafe vouchers through our website and over the phone, ready to use as soon as normality returns and with an extended validity period of two years. We will miss all our regular customers, and seeing new faces, but will very much look forward to seeing you all when we can re-open. Below we have highlighted the different areas of the business and the steps we are taking so far.
