Highlights of the 6th August March
Success of the work of the Otterpool Newtown Coalition in fighting Shepway Council’s ‘Garden Town’ proposal is vital if we are to conserve the remaining parts of Lympne Airfield and we thank everyone who turned out on the March for their support.
The event sent out a very load and clear message demonstrating huge opposition to the ‘Garden Town’ plan, the paragraph highlighted in Nick Waine’s letter to KM Express on 17 th Aug. and reproduced here said it all.
LYMPNE AIRFIELD HISTORY SOCIETY
Our September 13th meeting will feature a presentation by David Goldsmith on record breaking flights made from and to Lympne in the 1920’s and 30’s. Attempted flights will also feature in this meaty subject. Household names like Amy Johnson, Jim Mollison, Jean Batten and Jimmy Broadbent are just a few of the many names who chose Lympne to launch or end such flights. Aviation glory and disaster feature in equal measure in this golden era of aviation exploration. Such pilots were as famous as Premiership footballers are today. Lympne was often front page news in the national newspapers and on Pathe newsreels as these human adventures were played out on our Airfield!
The meeting starts at 7.30pm in the East Bar of Lympne Castle and is free and open to all. Enter the castle through the main doors and turn left. Thanks to our hosts Richard and Rod
