Gatwick Airport is partnering with the Gatwick Aviation Museum for the first time to host ‘Gatwick Fun’ day and showcase to the public some of the services which operate at the airport.
Alongside Gatwick’s airfield team, Sussex Police, the airport’s fire service and surface transport team, the Gatwick Greenspace Partnership, SERV Sussex, Surrey Search and Rescue and other charity partners will all be in attendance.
A number of different entertainment activities, demonstrations and refreshments will be available to those in attendance at the event, which will take place at the Museum on Saturday 16 September from 10am to 4pm.
The Museum, which is run as a charitable trust, hosts a unique collection of British aircraft from the end of WWII until the 1970’s. All proceeds from the event will go towards restoring and maintaining the exhibits and aircraft.
Gatwick’s Community Engagement Manager, Melanie Wrightson, said:
“We are proud to be partnering the Gatwick Aviation Museum to host this event for the first time, which promises to be fun for all the family and our airport teams look forward to meeting and greeting the local community.
“This partnership forms part of a wider programme of community engagement events, which Gatwick is supporting in the local area.”
John Tickner, Chair of Trustees at the Gatwick Aviation Museum, said:
“We’re really grateful for Gatwick Airport’s support in helping to make the first ‘Gatwick Fun’ day a reality and for allowing us to showcase the best the Gatwick Aviation Museum has to offer. We take great pride in looking after an important source of historical aircraft and it is our goal for these to be enjoyed by generations to come.”
