wolds Gliding club

Pocklington Airfield:

Is now run and kep by the Wolds Gliding club. The people who run the club have been very welcoming and generous over the years when it comes to the 102 Squadron and Association.

Please do check out their web site, and if you are planning a visit to the memorial, do give them a phone first just to let them know you are coming.
They also have a bunch of stuff on their walls concerning the Squadron, but again PLEASE ask before just walking into the club house to view.

Click the the image on the right to go to the web site, and thanks.
