Of course we gave a donation to the various charities – we have been told that the unconfirmed total is £100,000 – how fantastic is that!

As we walked to the car park, we were able to watch ‘The Blades’ give a fantastic aeronautic display… it was breath-taking!

As the unmistakable sound of the Spitfire’s engines could be heard everyone looked to the skies to see the fabulous display. The warmth from the crowd was like a group greeting old friend!
