Its a gas!

We now have heating in the cafe / meeting room.  A hole was dug, and the tank installed.

The hole is now filled in, and the boiler has been installed and is now working.

Iceni MG Rally

The tower welcomed the Iceni MG club, as it started off it's annual Boadicea run,  as several classic MGs (and a few others!) started on their journey through the Suffolk countryside.  There was also tea, coffee and bacon sandwiches!

Echoes Of The Past 2018

It was our annual Echoes Of The Past Event, and once again the weather was just perfect.

image28

Even before the gates were opened,  preparations were being made to make the tower neat and tidy.

image29

Sandwiches were being made, cakes were being sliced, and there was plenty of tea and coffee to go around.

image30

There were plenty of stall's, as well as exhibitions.

image31

At 1100, the event held a small service, in honour of all the airmen stationed here.  It was conducted by the Royal British Legion, and attended by the Deputy Mayor, and his wife.

image32

Tributes were laid in memory of those brave airmen, who were stationed here.

image33

There was even a drone flying overhead to take some aerial photo's.  Many thanks to Bryan Panton for giving us permission to use these great shots.
