Sunny Summer Lunch at Bibury

Summer Social Lunch at Bibury Court

Summer Social Lunch at Bibury Court

At last an excuse for a leisurely lunch in the delightful Cotswold beauty spot of Bibury and more specifically the Bibury Court Hotel, which was looking its best today on the 8th June.

Plans laid in place some many months ago for today’s XXIV Squadron Association Summer Social, kicked in on cue with almost 40 members and guests driving from all corners of the country for the event. The lunch had a least a three fold purpose and so made the most use of the few hours we had together. Number one was of course to just to get together, second to meet up with Wing Commander Tim Jones who had taken over the Squadron since we last met up in October 2010 and thirdly to hand over a cheque for £1,000 towards the Hawker Memorial Project.

It was full marks on all three objectives with a huge amount of satisfaction for all making the last goal of raising the £1,000 towards placing a lasting marker in the fields of France in memory of Major Hawker VC DSO. More details of that event which will be on the 11th of the 11th of the 11th.

Suffice it to say a very convivial time was had by one and all as we wish the Squadron every success in a smooth transition over to RAF Brize Norton in the next couple of weeks. A fuller account of the Summer Social will be in this years Newsletter, going out with this years Reunion details in a few weeks.
