Booker at the Wycombe Community Festival

The Longest Day event was well underway (more news of that in due course) when the Sales & Marketing team set off for the Rye to take part in Wycombe's annual Community Festival on what promised to be a hot and sticky day.

Keeping cool

The team soon had the display set up, and we were kept busy all day with queues of small children wanting to sit in the glider and adults interested in trying gliding.

Before the show

Plenty of interest
 There may have been a lot of action back at the airfield but the costumes were better at the Festival.

Councillor Mrs Lesley Clarke OBE, Chairman of Wycombe District Council, who received her OBE in 2013 for services to local government, visited us to wish us well.

Council support for gliding at Booker
Finally it was time to pack up and head back to the airfield for a bit of flying and the barbeque.

Many thanks to Hedda, who worked non-stop with the endless queue of children wanting to sit in the glider, Chris, Rob and Hugh.
