All lit up for Christmas!

Site manager Jules Gomez battled the wind at Capel-le-Ferne to film the new lights that illuminate The Wing and the statue of the seated airman, the National Memorial to the Few.

the lights were funded by a generous donation by businessman and Trust supporter Alastair Kerr and make a huge difference to the impact of the Memorial after dark.

We wish all our friends, volunteers, staff and visitors a Merry Christmas and a more positive 2021.
