October Airfield News....
WARWICKSHIRE CHARITY TRUCK CONVOY FROM LONG MARSTON
At midday Saturday 25th October a convoy consisting of 30 working and customised British, European and American trucks left Long Marston Airfield on a route which led them through the town centre of Stratford Upon Avon and later on to the finishing point at the Coventry Motor Museum. Billed as the Warwickshire Charity Truck Convoy the occasion was to raise awareness and funds for Troop Aid supporting our injured troops and fallen heroes! Troop Aid was founded in November 2006 by three ex servicemen as a result of a visit to Selly Oak Hospital’s Alexandra Wing in Birmingham. This is the home of the Defence Medical Welfare Services who are responsible for the welfare of all Armed Forces Personnel, male and female who have been injured during the conflict in Afghanistan and elsewhere. With thousands or people lining the streets an impressive £2,254.92 was raised for the charity. It is hoped that a similar convoy can be repeated next year to coincide with a static Truck Show in the Warwickshire area! Click on the photos to see more.
AUTUMN SHAKESPEARE RUN
This is the perfect race for all runners of all abilities. If you're looking for that fast race to get your Personal Best then the Autumn Shakespeare in the heart of Warwickshire is the perfect race for you. The event will also welcome Helen Summers - author of 'Running Crazy' to the race. Helen will be doing a book signing at registration and will be in attendance with Steve Edwards; the world record holder for the most marathons ran at a sub 3hr 20 min time (currently 650!). All in all this years Autumn Shakespeare is a race not to be missed. Click on the web banner to the right for further details.
