Pilot and Author, Chris Sullivan, will speak on the story of R.A.F. Gransden Lodge. After being put to valuable use by the R.A.F.’s Bomber and Transport Commands, it was subsequently the venue for the first post-war motor races to take place in the U.K. After a long period during which it was under consideration as a base for Cold War American forces it was returned to agriculture, until the Cambridge Gliding Centre set up operations there in the early 1990s. Haslingfield Village Society, Tuesday, 17th April, 8:00PM, Haslingfield Village Hall.

Wicken Fen, Past, Present and Future
Dr Peter Green will give an overview of the creation of the Fen and the various drainage schemes. He will then detail how Wicken was one of the few small areas to escape drainage thanks, in part, to the efforts of scientists from Cambridge. Once the National Trust was formed it bought part of Wicken Fen and was donated much more by these same Cambridge Scientists. The talk will then detail how the National Trust has maintained the Fen and the reasons for, and progress, of the Wicken Fen Vision, a 100 year project to ensure the long term preservation of this extremely important ecosystem.

Ships that bring hope to the despairing, healing to the damaged, and health to the ill are to be rejoiced in. We offer hope, health and healing to the world’s poor. Currently our hospital ship – “Africa Mercy” – is docked at Cameroon. Her mission there for 10 months is to carry out operations that could not otherwise be afforded by the people; on board they pay nothing. The teams of nurses, doctors, surgeons and other crew members from all over the world donate their time on the world’s largest non-governmental floating hospital, for free.
