My history knowledge is not perfect, but I have tried to learn as much as was needed to put a case for Conservation at Panshanger Aerodrome. I don't think anyone would have thought that the local council would have to dish out £13 Grand because of me, but its a small price to pay to save something worth saving; the aerodrome is about a third of its original size...
This is my only social site now: https://www.facebook.com/HolwellHydeHeritage
my website is still a free one:
and signing this e-petition is as important as the community one: http://epetitions.direct.gov.uk/petitions/46036
I am not a pilot but would hope one day, that will change. When I initially responded to save panshanger, it was not for some selfish reason, but I was responding to a crisis and I had help. Everyone needs help! This history group which is the foundation of the application for conservation was never meant to be anything more than an email to my local MP and hopefully him to take it from there but that one turned out be a dead-end. Just my stick-tuitiveness (if I may coin an american phrase)got me here. I am not looking to do anymore community work after 2014 but I appreciate other aerodromes facing similar problems and my advice to those is to seek conservation areas on them asap with their local councils and keep its efforts in the local paper as often as possible. A couple of stories you might have missed, alt, Dean.
