Summer at the Base

Bring the whole family to our very first Summer at the Base event, which will take place on the front lawn of our operational airbase. You will have prime view of our helipad, and helicopter (subject to operations) as our crew attend lifesaving missions.

From midday-4pm we will have something for everyone, from activities for children to a wide range of local traders and food options.

Spend some time at our circus skills area. Come and learn how to ride a unicycle, juggle and plate spin. Have fun with diablos and devil sticks. Fun for all ages. All you need is willpower and a smile on your face. 

Friday 9 August also marks National Blood Bike Day, and we are pleased to welcome Freewheelers as our special guests. The Freewheelers are a charity that work closely with us, delivering blood products to our airbase daily for our crew to use on their lifesaving missions and returning any unused products to Southmead Hospital, Bristol.

Just The 2 Of Us, Sue & Dee will be performing songs from 60s to present day in a 30 minute set at 12:30pm. 
We can't wait to welcome them to sing for you.

In addition, don't miss out on our ever-popular merchandise, fabulous offerings from our charity shop and don't forget to bring cash to play our tombola! We will also have our lottery & Will experts on site to answer any questions you might have.
