Time to Remember
Our project to erect a befitting memorial to those who served at RAF North Creake got underway in 2017. We will be officially launching the project in spring 2018 but we are delighted with progress so far.
We are almost ready to apply for planning permission - once we have that in place we will announce the project launch. Our aim is to have a Stirling sculpture memorial in place by the 75th Anniversary of the disbandment of the airfield - August 2020. We also plan to have a Roll of Honour for those lost and information about the airfield when active.
Time to Remember will be a fun filled 2 and a half years. We're planning unusual ways of raising the money needed including having a memorial beer... 'Drink to Remember' and other events like 'Dance to Remember'... 'Cycle to Remember'. The fundraising started at a soft launch we held in October and we have had some amazing pledges and donations already. There will bemany opportunities for you to take part so let us know if you want to be involved or pledge towards the project.
We need to do this now while those who remember what happened here can see that we still care and want to remember.
