Sadly, but inevitably, Trustees have decided that The Wing and Car Park will now remain closed until early in the New Year.
With Kent emerging from Lockdown2 in Tier 3 and with the future remaining uncertain, there is no realistic hope of things getting back to normal before Christmas and so our next day of welcoming visitors is scheduled to be Thursday 7 January 2021, subject to restrictions in place at the time.
The site itself is always open to visitors on foot, but please park sensibly without upsetting our neighbours, keep dogs on leads and observe social distancing and all Tier 3 rules while paying your respects to the Few.
While this has been a sad year for the Trust, as for virtually everyone, we have been heartened by the amazing support shown by so many people, from those who contributed to our fundraising efforts to those who visited the site when we were able to reopen and those who posted great reviews for us on social media.
So while this has been a difficult year, it has also reassured us that we have the support of many thousands of people who respect the memory of the Few and who value what we do here at Capel-le-Ferne to tell the story of what they achieved in the Battle of Britain.
We wish all our friends and supporters a peaceful Christmas and a much better 2021.
