Summer at the Base

Join us for our first Summer at the Base event at our airbase.
An airbase with helicopter on helipad, with a green field

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.

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.

We are so excited to welcome you to our airbase this summer and can confirm the first few traders:

Outdoor garden decorations depicting the Green Man, plus other decorative garden items also using recycled materials.

Please note: heavy rains may mean we have to cancel the event. We will aim to give you as much notice as possible if this is the case. If there has been mild rain leading up to the event, please wear sensible footwear. We are called Outmarsh for a reason.  

Only assistance and service dogs will be allowed on site.
As we are an operational airbase, please be very aware of the road as the critical care car may be deployed. Please also be responsible for all your property and litter. If anything is left on the ground it could become a potential risk to the aircraft. With this in mind our volunteers will be collecting anything left unattended throughout.
