Farewell and Thank You from Kenley Revival
Kenley Revival Project was always planned with specific aims and a set timeframe, which is now drawing to a close.
Heritage Lottery funding ended last year and a one year 'Legacy' period was funded by The City of London Corporation. Now the Project will continue with a small core of volunteers providing school workshops, tours and small events. We will also continue to research Kenley's history and work on the website, so please carry on sending in your photos and stories.
You can still email us - firstname.lastname@example.org
It just remains for me to thank Chris Baguely and Mike Simpson, who dreamt up Kenley Revival, but sadly, were no longer with us when their idea came to fruition, City Commons (especially the Ranger team), The National Lottery Heritage Fund, Historic England and Kenley Airfield Friends Group for putting the Project together.
Kenley and Caterham RAFA, the Portcullis Club and the RAF have come to our aid time and time again. Thanks to Marie Tulley-Rose, Amy Todd, Josie Evans and Charlotte Islin who worked so hard on all the different strands of the Project and Museum of London Archaeology for our wonderful digs.
Their efforts would have been pointless without all of you who have attended events, and none of this would have been possible without our wonderful volunteers, to whom we are profoundly grateful. In all, more than 17,000 people have taken part in events and 7,000 local children have benefited from school workshops and airfield tours.
It has been an honour and a privilege to tell the stories of the servicemen and women of RAF Kenley, who gave so much to protect our freedom. This was only made possible with the help of our veterans and their families.
Thank you all..
