Hello everyone

Just thought it would be good to chat about the new field at Hanbury.. and the “new” field at Rushwick. Lets remind ourselves how fortunate we are as a Model Aircraft club in these abnormal Covid 19 pandemic times.

First Hanbury:  

As you all know quite unexpectedly in September the landlord announced a change of flying field for us.  We responded immediately and in short order a replacement field was seamlessly created.  Now up and running with no difficulties experienced .

It has to be said that all this was only made possible because some keen members pitched in and did their bit.

Thanks to Steve Ottley, Bryan Howes, Jeremy Flatt for giving their time mowing the patch,  the pits  and the car park.  Many thanks to Clive Maulden for making and installing a superb club notice board which he has donated free of charge.. Thanks to Bryan Howes for donating a windsock free of charge, Thanks to Sam Booton for his input with making Covid 19 signs and adapting the new website he recently created for us to suit the changing conditions.

Last but not least our landlord David who created a brand new field entrance, rolled the runway several times filled any large holes, and put Hi Viz material on the fence at end of runway.  We are fortunate indeed to have such support from both landlords in these abnormal times,  giving us the opportunity to get out in the fresh air and play with our toys!!

And to Rushwick..

Our landlord Matt has demonstrated his loyalty to our 18 years of tenancy of our Flying club by re seeding the field… and supporting our club by refusing to accept a financial offer from some members past and present who feel that their interests are above those of the other 50+ members of Worcester Model Aero Club. Good for him. We salute you Matt.

This field will be developed in the Spring so please watch this space.

So whatever is thrown at us we as a club will prevail…. just as we have already many times in the Club’s  111 years history.

Thanks for your support
