April Update

2020 Little Rock, AR reunion is now booking for October.

Great location, great program planned and great opportunity to meet with old friends and remember your times in England and the military. 

The reunion is designed for YOU and we look forward to welcoming as many members and friends as possible to make this the usual happy and successful week.

Virginia Beach Reunion 2018

Burtonwood Times

Vol 34 No 1 is just published.  Anyone wishing to contribute or who has a notice to post are invited to contact Aldon Ferguson (Editor) as soon as possible. It is now printed in colour in both the USA and UK and priority is given to members who take it in electronic form which keeps the high costs of printing and mailing down.  Subjects include the opening on RAF Burtonwood on 1 April 1940, 75th Anniversary of VE-Day and activities at Burtonwood, the YB-40 Gunship, Chapelford Medical Centre and Burtonwood Photos, our special Burtonwood Remembered seat at the new Warrington West railway station and much more.

Series of Lectures of the Story of RAF Burtonwood

Due to the popularity of this series we will hopefully hold another in autumn 2020 so watch this space.  In the meantime we are also planning a one-off lecture on Burtonwood’s Contribution to the Berlin Airlift 1948-49.  Full details of both will be posted as soon as the dates are fixed.  All are free to members but an entrance fee will be payable by non-members.
