2020 Reunion Weekend

[Extract from Letter to Members]

The EWA Spring Newsletter advised that the Association would make a decision on whether to proceed with the 2020 Reunion, dependent on the course of the Coronavirus and associated Government advice. Regretfully, it’s now confirmed that the Reunion Weekend, scheduled for Saturday 29 and Sunday 30 August, will not take place.

 

Earlier this month, the Committee discussed the measures likely to be required for any sort of event to proceed. It was concluded that, even if a gathering was permitted, these would be impractical and costly to implement. The fact that some members may be ‘vulnerable’ or could be ‘shielding’ was also taken into account.

 

The practicalities of holding a Remembrance Event this November remain under review. It is anticipated that a decision will be taken by early September and communicated shortly after.   

 

In closing, the Committee trust that you and your families have not been too badly affected by the continuing outbreak, as we look forward to the 2021 Reunion. All being well, this will mark the 80thAnniversary of  RAF Elsham Wolds and planning will commence shortly.
