Or as we like to think of it, a third attempt to kick start 2020!
Plans are underway for a new memorial. Funds are in place, and the builders are ready to go. Sadly Winter and Covid keep getting in the way.
However, this is still a work in progress, and we will update you as and when.

We've been busy at the Tower.
We have invested in a 40' container and spent time emptying Wilburs Hut of all the "stuff" we've been putting in there over the past few years.
We now have a secure storage space, and Wilburs is now free for the next phase. This will involve moving the engines from Nissen Hut 1 to the left side of Wilburs.
In doing so we will have extra display space in the Nissen Huts, and Wilburs can then be handed over for film
shows/events/talks/visiting displays etc.
The container will be painted hopefully before we open in April.
Thank you to all who came and helped.
Looking for a great evening of war time stories?
Check out this event for the 28th of May.
It's mostly work, and a little play... err... snooze...
OK, it's a lot of play!
Even the pets like to join in.
Whether it is work or play, we also have a lot of fun, as we look forward to seeing you.
There is something for everyone at the Tower.
Our team will by more than happy to demonstrate how the kit works.
This great photo was taken by Wendy Easton.
There was a amazing collection of cars on show, many in great condition.
Cars were seen from both side's
of the pond.
There were many British classics on show.
There were plenty of American cars from years gone by.
This Ford was registered between
1973 and 1974.
But we are already looking forward to seeing you again in 2023.
It was great to have many of our friends in Military Uniform.
We also had over 80 people through the gate, which was amazing.
On a cold and frosty December morning, the Tower
held its December Departure event.
Despite the weather, there was a great turn out, as we remembered, and celebrated the memories of those who served, and gave up their lives for the freedom of others.

A big thank you to Dave Wright for letting us use this photo.
Amazing how eerie the tower looks in the frost.
Two more fantastic photo's taken during the
December Departure event.
Again, it is amazing how eerie these photo's look in black and white.
They look like they were taken in the 1940's.
Many thanks to Rachel Hockley - Warner for the use of these pictures.
