Recommended Posts


IWM have reduced the financial risk and we are once again happy to organise what will be THE  DUXFORD PICNIC

This will be a reduced service by us , its definitley bring your own food our usual refreshment tent will not be available    , and we cant sell raffle tickets but you will have full site access 

all this is subject to any covid rules or restrictions on the day .

times and costs will be out very soon , it is most likely to be cash only or we might arrange a BACs payment scheme we dont have a card reader (we are looking into that )

so make the date  September 27th at Duxford  IWM Cambs.  just off J10 of the M11  gates open 9am  close 12pm for classic entries 

full site access to visit all thats open .

more to follow , thats it for today

Doug  the  no raffle raffle was because we shouldnt have a raffle  but your 2nd guess is nearer the mark   there is NO RAFFLE

due to 2mtrs   or    1+mtrs and coins and notes gives us a problem we cant control 

we will sanitise money for gate ticket sales  as of now we can only do CASH ONLY  we are looking into card readers

but there are complications of strings ,red tape and a phone signal and costs we cant swallow

we have always done a not a raffle raffle ,IWM rules you sign up to NO Raffle they dont want you to make any funding from there establishment , it may be due to gambling rules 

ours is always private  only to members they turn a bit of a blind eye to what we get up too.but we this year are keeping inside the covid contact recommendations

which might change by end of september , if thats the case ....watch out we will be selling Im not going to fund a non event until we know its safe to do so 

we make so little doing this event even 3 car prizes might just be a laminated certificate this year 

so its clear we take  £1 PER ADULT admission  ,      you can work all day and we get £150 ....  its not funny  any funds came from raffle and refreshments  but cant do that this year

  • 3 weeks later...

IWM Duxford is now open  ,https://www.iwm.org.uk/visits/iwm-duxford

unless the recent change of rules takes a step back there is likely to be face masks and distancing rules in place in close area's inside 

but by end of september it might be a more rosier picture ....or not   we will keep you updated as best we can

lets get a row of Spitfires to make the Battle of Britain worthy of celebration
