Speaker on top of the world

We’ve lined up an inspirational speaker to entertain local business people at our networking event at the end of this month.

The free afternoon event will feature former international rugby star Lee Mears, who recently set a world record as part of a team that played on Everest.

The British Lion, keen pilot, charity ambassador and executive business coach will be at the Battle of Britain Memorial here at Capel-le-Ferne on the afternoon of 30 May.

The Trust has organised the event to highlight the amazing facilities on offer to local businesses, organisations and groups looking for somewhere to meet or hold an event.

Guest speaker Lee recently returned from Everest, where he was part of a team of 24 who played the highest game of full contact rugby and the highest game of mixed rugby in history – at 6,500 metres – in support of the Wooden Spoon children’s charity.

As well as the modern surroundings of the Geoffrey Page Centre, part of the Spitfire wing-shaped Wing building that now houses our shop, café and Scramble Experience, we have great new facilities in Hunting Lodge, the former visitor centre that is now an impressive library and resource centre.

While the facilities are first class, delegates or group members will also enjoy the clifftop surroundings of the Memorial and the calm, reflective atmosphere it provides.Lee Mears

The business networking event on 30 May is free to attend and will also include a short presentation about the work the Trust does to preserve the memory of the men Churchill immortalised as ‘the Few’. It begins at 3.30pm.
