Wilfred Jones
I apologise for being the bearer of sad news. I have recently heard that Wilf Jones, Finance Director of Davies and Newman died on 24th May of stomach cancer. He had a difficult time but stayed at home rather than going into a hospice, which made it all the more upsetting for his family, even though there was help from carers. It was a relief when the end came. Wilf had his 85th birthday in February. He would have been married to Valarie for 59 years on 4th June.
His funeral will be at New Southgate Crematorium at 11:15 on Friday 16 June

DUXFORD AIRLINER DAY - JUNE 18th 2017

We have had a message from Duxford telling us about an exciting aviation day:


My name is Keith Bradshaw and I am one of the organising committee members for a new and exciting  event to be held at Duxford this summer. Airliner day is promoted jointly by the Duxford Aviation Society and the IWM. It will be a celebration of all things Airline and Airliner and is being run as a fund raiser for the iconic British Airliner Collection which includes 12 classic British airliners from the late 1940’s to the 1980’s. These include such types as Comet, Concorde, Viscount, Ambassador, Britannia, VC10, Herald and BAC 1-11. We plan to have all the airliners open for the public to visit, bespoke cockpit visits will also be available. Guided tours and an aircraft departure re-enactment  will bring the story to life. There will be the opportunity for a member of the public to operate the controls during a Concorde nose droop demo. Also on the day the British Airways band will be providing music and there will be a collection of classic cars, pleasure flying, raffle, quiz, displays, sales stalls and military vehicle rides along with a small static display .There will not be a flying display. Entry to the event will be free with a normal museum admittance ticket but some of the attractions will incur an additional charge.
 As part of the event we are inviting old/retired staff associations of the many now gone but not forgotten airlines. Could you please let your members know about this event and if any could come in their old uniforms that would add to the atmosphere of the day no end. If your association would like to have a sales/promotional stall at the event please let me know on kbrad1@hotmail.co.uk.

Many thanks for your time and we hope you can join us on June 18th for this unique event.

Keith
