Very many thanks to Graham for making my husbands trip so brilliant and to everyone for being so helpful. This life affirming trip was a long held ambition for my husband and the grin on his face on his return said it all. The weather was very cold but bright and sunny, and the views magnificent. Brilliant opportunity which we... More

We live below the Glider Club, so have seen the planes and gliders many times. I love hearing them and seeing them. Had one of the veterans come and speak to our WI about it and I 'saw' the gliding in another light. My husband had an extra ticket, so .. it was the only reason that I got the... More

On a walk up and round Sutton Bank and the White Horse we stopped here for a breather. Tea at 50p was good and incredible value. From the window you could watch the gliders being towed up, it seemed to be a continuous process.
