As the Coronavirus lockdown eases...
Kenley Common has remained as busy as ever this Spring, with people making good use of the perimeter track during their daily exercise. Please continue to follow government guidelines on social distancing when using the Common.
During May, the events planned for the 75th anniversary of V.E. Day seemed to scatter into hundreds of small, socially-distanced street parties, see pictures above. Local veteran, Ken Raffield even got a round of applause when he went out to observe the two minute silence and piper, Bob Ash, played for the fallen in Airmen's Corner, at St.Luke's churchyard, Whyteleafe. However, a shadow was cast when we learnt that Flight Lieutenant Terry Clark, one of '"The Few", had passed away aged 101, the night before.
It was a beautiful day on the 19th May, when Surrey Hills Gliding Club took to the skies again, a landmark on our slowly evolving journey back to “normal” at Kenley Airfield and Kenley Common.
