1st Open Day 2016

What a fantastic first open day of 2016 we had yesterday, with our good fortune the weather was fine if cold. It was a great success with lots of visitors, kept me busy all day not only explaining the Post but also our heritage back to 1916 with the Metropolitan Observation Service and the London Air Defence Area. Had quite a few ex ROC visitors including Bob McIntosh from 7Grp Bedford who came up specially for the day and an Observer from Sidmouth Post in Devon. Rick Thomas the restorer of Kettering Post and Lachlan Macleod who is restoring Aberlemno also came along. Days like this really make the restoration worthwhile. Thanks to Bob McIntosh, ex C/Obs (W) Janice Colbert-Weeks of Horton-in-Ribblesdale Post and her husband Neil for their help at the end of the day, stripping the Post and loading the cars. Thanks again everybody, without our visitors it just wouldn’t be the same.
